When Reality Got Tough On Trump He Targeted 16 and 17 Year Old SUSPECTED Gang Members For Deportation


"U.S. immigration agents are planning nationwide raids next week to arrest, among others, teenagers who entered the country without guardians and are suspected gang members, in a widening of President Donald Trump's crackdown on illegal immigrants. 
The raids are set to begin on Sunday and continue through Wednesday, according to an internal memo seen by Reuters. The teenagers targeted will be 16- and 17-years-old."

The report I saw on Reuters said it was possible that all it would take would be for a 16 year old kid to have the wrong tattoo to get picked up.

This was reported by Reuters after seeing a memo. Maybe less-stupid heads have prevail and it won't go forward.   But the memo said the crackdown is supposed to take place between Sunday to Wednesday, possibly starting on 07-23-17(?)


I'm not a lawyer. But this doesn't sound legal to me. You can't round people up without any evidence of anything. Furthermore, this sounds like an announcement arrests based on racial profiling. The likely target? Mexicans teenagers.

And if he gets away with it THIS time, with Mexicans, he will be coming for the rest of us,  one group at a time. And I do think he's just targeting Mexicans right now with the "gang" label. That is, I'll be shocked if I see Asian Gang members rounded up this trip --or Canadian Whites with swastika tattoos on ANY trip ever. 

KAKISTOCRACY

This new outrageous deportation attack smells like a distraction from the mess Trump has swirling around him.  Actually, I'm thinking that w
hen Trump starts looking like the loser he is he's likely going to show a pattern of attacking black or brown people. 

TRUMP'S JULY LOSER MANEUVERS 

1) His Watered Down Muslim Ban, that he sorta/kinda got past the Supreme Court before the break got watered down even more by Hawaii (again) 
A federal judge in Hawaii has expanded the list of family relationships needed by people seeking new visas from six Muslim-majority countries to avoid President Donald Trump's travel ban.
US District Judge Derrick Watson on Thursday ordered the government not to enforce the ban on grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins of people in the United States.

Flat Learning Curve Trump is still learning he's not King. (To tell the truth, I was surprised Hawaii could adjust anything the Supreme Court said)

2) Repeal and Replace failed this week last week and trying to repeal Obamacare without replacement failed this week   


3) Trump is squawking IN PUBLIC about being unable to control his Attorney General, Little Jeffy Sessions-- to the point that Sessions had to make a statement about not leaving until the time is appropriate.

4) McCain got so sick he had to use his cadillac healthcare and couldn't vote to end other people's healthcare. That slim margin the Republicans have in the Senate just dropped to 51 to 48. That means they need every republican except 1 to pass anything sans democrats.  

5) He had to pretend Spicer quit -- when nobody thought Spicer was coming back from his vacation in the first place. And they the nerve to pretend Spicer stood up to Trump about the ethics of the guy replacing him. 

I laughed out loud after all the bold face stupidity Spicer repeated on Trump's orders.
Mr Spicer is reportedly stepping down because he is unhappy with President Donald Trump's appointment of a new communications director. But he told Fox News he had "no regrets" about his six-month stint. 
Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci has been picked for the role that Mr Spicer had partially filled (And this new guy is busy erasing tweets that make it clear he thought Trump's a loser...before he was hired anyway)

6) McTwitterwit's son and his son-in-law will NO LONGER have to testify about their own series of lies about Russia -- some of which involve a lawyer that worked with the infamous Russian Intelligence Agency that used to be known as the KGB (now known as the FSB) 

Chump Jr and the son-in-law will be "interviewed" in private instead.


Again, I don't know why the "T" word isn't being used more often (TREASON).

The Trump Boys were possibly negotiating during another presidents administration about sanctions that other president put in place. Furthermore, what really good trashy evidence could Russia have had about Hillary that they didn't hack? Depending on when they hacked her -- if they did hack her at all-- then they may have hacked a U.S. Secretary.

I wonder if that will be covered in the gentle private interview?


7) BUILD THAT WALL has GONE NO WHERE

8)  A bipartisan piece of legislation was passed this week which placed sanctions on Russia and limited Trump's ability to lift them. 
U.S. Republicans and Democrats have reached agreement on legislation that allows new sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea, leading congressional Democrats said on Saturday, in a bill that would limit any potential effort by President Donald Trump to try to lift sanctions against Moscow.

If that's not a smack in Da Chumpster's face, then what is?

9) And now we've found out Little Jeffy Sessions  may have lied about his Russia ties again. Apparently intelligence agencies over heard the Russian ambassador reporting what was said between him and Sessions. 

Where is this stuff coming from? If it’s coming from the intelligence community, color me disturbed. I don’t like the idea that the CIA and NSA are basically at war with the Trump administration. But if, instead, it’s coming from folks inside the White House, I’m astonished that anyone there would be interested in bringing down a hammer this colossal on Sessions. Do they want him to resign that badly? Or is it coming from former Obama officials who are just now getting around to leaking it? 
Is there a single person in the Trump administration with any better morals than your average Mafia hood?
http://www.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2017/07/wapo-sessions-lied-about-campaign-contacts-with-russia-1/

Um...I think the answer to that last question is "nope." 

And there has been such a consistent trickle of crap coming out of the White House, I'm starting to think there's a single source that's dribbling it out one story at a time. 


Wouldn't it be funny if it was Russia? Wouldn't it be funny if the Russians pushed to have Trump in office because he's the one dumb enough to do exactly what he's doing? Destroying the White House and its credibility from the inside. 


The thing that gave me a giggle about Little Jeffy KKK Sessions is that rumor has it that he is Trump's new Spicer -- the punching bag that gets punched for doing exactly what Trump said to do AND taking the blame when it turns to crap. (Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy)


10) Some folks are examining the T-word (Treason) and Trump responded by threatening Mueller to not investigate his family.
Members of Congress were aghast on Thursday after President Donald Trump suggested that he would move to fire special counsel Robert Mueller if his investigation into Russia’s election meddling turned towards Trump’s finances. 
But those same members said that they were unable to preemptively shield Mueller from the threat of presidential interference.

Then, Mueller expanded his probe to investigate Trump's family --in response to Donald Junior's meetings where there was a Russian spy in the room not Donald Senior's ridiculous threats, I suspect. 


Donald Trump is a master liar. By comparison his son is a bumbler who has not yet learned the dark arts of expert mendacity. This is not for lack of trying. Donald Trump Sr.  just has many decades more practice.
Last week, Donald Trump Jr. publicly released emails in an effort to preempt The New York Times and its story about his meeting with Russian operatives during the 2016 presidential campaign. There he was promised damaging information about Hillary Clinton. This meeting is the clearest example so far of collusion between Donald Trump and Russia.
In response to the initial rumors and eventual “revelation” about this meeting, the Trumps responded in a predictable pattern. First, there were denials that any such meeting took place. Then the narrative shifted to suggest that the meeting took place but the topics discussed were innocuous and trivial. The lies would develop to now emphasize that a meeting did take place between Trump Jr. and Russian representatives but that nothing came of it. Consequently, no harm (or crime) was committed. As more details emerged — including how senior members of Trump’s campaign were present including Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner (both of whom are under investigation for their highly suspect connections to Russian interests) — the lies evolved again to focus on how collusion with a foreign power to win an American election is somehow not illegal.  Now it is known that this previously secret meeting was also attended by a former Russian spy as well as a Russia-connected financier who has been investigated regarding his involvement with money laundering.

11) 
 Gallup: Trump sets new low for second-quarter approval rating
http://www.cnn.com/2017/07/21/politics/trump-second-quarter-approval/index.html

12) SO NOW Trump is going after SUSPECTED Gang members now -- not those convicted of something. 

When a white supremacist leader is looking like a loser then an attack on a group of brown people is just what the doctor ordered for to get his white supremacist base behind him again.


I guess Trump couldn't find a way to drop a bomb on some unsuspecting country full of brown folk without guaranteeing swift retaliation. That's the only thing that makes America drop everything and stop squabbling -- usually at the expense of women, black, and brown people INSIDE our country.  (Either he hasn't thought of it or he can't find a good target)
