Donald Trump Plans to Bypass the Courts to Deport as Many People as Possible


The more I see and hear President Donald Trump wishes to govern as a dictator, which will be the end of democracy in America. He believes he is the one supreme being whose word or demand has to be obeyed.

He has all ready started to take control of the press and now is starting on the judiciary. Then what is his next venture holding camps or even worse extermination camps for those who he and he alone considers undesirables and where have we seen that occur before.

Stop Making Sense

Ryan Devereaux reports for The Intercept:

On Tuesday, the Department of Homeland Security released a pair of memos laying out how the agency intends to implement President Donald Trump’s executive orders on domestic immigration enforcement. In addition to calling for a massive increase in the number of immigration agents and the deputizing of local and state law enforcement across the country — described in the documents as a “force multiplier”— the memos dramatically expand the range of people who can be deported without seeing a judge.

“I see now what the plan is,” Greg Siskind, a Tennessee-based immigration attorney and member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association board of governors, told The Intercept. “Their plan is basically to have everybody thrown out of the country without ever going to court.” Additional immigration attorneys and legal experts who spoke to The Intercept shared Siskind’s concerns, describing various elements of the DHS directives and the…

What Trump’s win means for the rest of the world


This was one of the most contentious elections in US history – and now it’s ended in a shocking upset: Donald Trump appears to have won a majority in the electoral college, which if confirmed will make him the president-elect of the United States. The rest of the world now has to work out what happens next.

Even before Trump pulled ahead on the night, the campaign itself was disastrous for America’s reputation abroad, exposing the worst in US politics. Trump’s views on Muslims, Latinos, Blacks and women earned him global notoriety. He also alarmed many of the US’s key allies with his opinions on NATO and the use of nuclear weapons. Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton suffered from her own problems, branded by Trump and others as untrustworthy and “crooked”. Both candidates had historically low likeability ratings.

Donald Trump says he will deport millions of people in his ‘first hour in office’ | The Independent


Should the worst scenario occur and Trump does win the election and become President of America, then he will have a lot to learn, but unfortunately he appears not to be for learning.

He states that he would deport millions in his “first hour”, just how would he do that, for to do so, firstly he would have to have millions already in custody and have appropriate transport available. Then what would he do if Mexico refused these millions entry. The days of “gunship diplomacy” have long since gone and also no country today have the resources to do this. He speaks as though his word is law, as a dictator would and he is the one who will be obeyed, not only by America, but any country he himself deems should do so. This is ignorance to an extreme, for a country and other countries are not like companies where the CEO may be able to exert his own power and not take into account any of the consequences in doing so.

If by his actions he bankrupts the company then the rule of law can be relied upon to provide some means to mitigate the effects of bankruptcy. However, if this relates to a country, the rule of law may also be no longer available, so who or what would he then call upon.

As I have said so much to learn, but an unwilling learner, so America be warned your fate is within your own hands.

—————————————————————————————————————-

Donald Trump has vowed to deport millions of people in his “first hour” of office if he becomes president at the end of a day in which he stoked tensions with Mexico over the issue of immigration and who would pay for a border wall. Seeking to end confusion over his aggressive but muddled language on immigration, he vowed to remove those living in the country illegally if he becomes president, warning that failure to do so would jeopardise the “well-being of the American people.”

The Young Turks: US Senator Blames Heroin Addiction on Disability Benefits


Beastrabban\'s Weblog

Okay, this is another video from The Young Turks across the Pond. I’m reblogging it here, because the attitude of the Republican senator, who made this stupid speech is exactly the same as the Conservatives over here. It’s so similar that I wonder how long it’ll be before Ian Duncan Smith, Katie Hopkins, Louise Mensch or some other Tory rentagob makes precisely the same argument in parliament, or in the pages of the Sun or the Mail.

The Republican senator, Tom Cotton, gave a speech to the right-wing Heritage Foundation arguing that disability benefits should be abolished because they act as a disincentive for the disabled to get jobs. He stated that disability benefits encourage increasing numbers of people to stop working to go on them. Eventually there comes a point, according to Cotton, where the sheer number of people on disability benefits drives companies away from an area…
