The administration’s argument that it need provide no evidence to a Court with respect to that order, other than it was the Great Trumpkin’s prerogative, exemplifies the nimble and sharp as a bowling legal arguments that will Make America Great Again.

The other part of me is worried at what could happen if the administration wasn’t run by a bunch of incompetent people. February 10, 2017 9:25 AM Log in to Reply Ellynn The competent people (and I’m going with the fact Session is extremely competent legally) would get Trump to swallow his pride, admits the original EO was crafted badly and issue a brand spanking new E.O. that address all the stupidity overlooked in executing the first one, has the correct exceptions for green cards, long term visa in the public interest (like docs, sciences, ect) highly endangered military assets or their families, meets the requirements of section 1 of the 14th amendment AND can ban future people from the seven countries listed entering the country. The question comes down to what Trump treasures more; his ego or his pledge to ban people in the name of ‘national security’. February 10, 2017 10:49 AM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope GOP town halls got interesting last night. Chaffetz faced “do your job” chants and some tough questions on the Oversight Committee’s seeming reluctance to look into the Trump Administration. Diane Black faced a number of constituents angry about the GOP’s lack of an Obamacare replacement. This is starting to give me a very 2009 Tea Party vibe.

February 10, 2017 11:14 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse Ivanka’s fashions were discontinued at Nordstrom’s because they weren’t selling, so naturally the businessman President was compeled to tweet that it was politics and not business and not fair. The tweet reassured Trump supporters that Trump has stepped away from his businesses, what with Ivanka being told the line was being discontinued last month, and Trump not tweeting about it until it until recently. It’s all good, since Ivanka’s fashions belong at Family Dollar, because all indications are that this Presidency is about generating Family Dollars. Trump’s Nordstrom tweet cued Kellyanne Conway to act in her capacity as Presidential advisor to do a commercial for Ivanka’s fashions. Don’t underestimate Conway’s salesmanship. She just sold Trump rubes a line about a terrorist “Bowling Green Massacre” not getting covered when there wasn’t any Bowling Green massacre, in response to Trump complaining the media wasn’t choosing to report terrorist attacks earlier in the week. February 10, 2017 10:56 AM Log in to Reply davidmac CNN reports that the offending SB 81 has been rewritten to be opioid-specific, and not broadly apply to all scheduled drugs. Good. Thanks Ellynn for calling in too. http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/09/health/adhd-opioid-prescription-bill-georgia-update/ February 10, 2017 11:16 AM Log in to Reply Ellynn Your welcome. I’m have all my reps in my phone contacts. Long before calling your elected officials become fashionable this winter, I was a firm believer in telling my reps what I wanted. They have been for the most part firm believers in not listening to me. February 10, 2017 1:14 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Nice!

Pope Not to dump on the paragon of journalistic integrity that is the Washington Examiner, but if the attorneys at the DOJ thought there was any merit to those figures, they would have argued it.
