Mr. trump's big speech..

I tried to stay awake during Mr. trump's state of his teleprompter address, but I couldn't make it past the first 15 minutes. (My wife's eight year old niece reads better than the president.) 

Fortunately there were other folks who watched it for me, so I will be able to give you their take on  Mr. trump's night in the spotlight.

"President Donald Trump spent the bulk of his first State of the Union address touting his tax policy and laying out an immigration proposal that would advance many white nationalist organizations’ top priorities.

Buried within the speech, however, was a proposal that would fundamentally rework the balance of power between civil servants and political appointees — and strike a deep blow to the rule of law in the process.

“I call on the Congress to empower every Cabinet Secretary with the authority to reward good workers,” Trump said, “and to remove Federal employees who undermine the public trust or fail the American people.”

On the surface, this proposal may seem benign — who doesn’t want public employees who “fail the American people” to be removed? But laws protecting civil servants against politically motivated firings are one of the foundations of liberal democracy.

They are what enable a prosecutor ordered to bring frivolous charges against the president’s political rivals to say no.

They are what permit investigators to target people suspected of genuine legal violations, not companies that compete with the president’s businesses.

They enable environmental regulators to tell the presidents’ appointees that they must obey the Clean Air Act. They empower Labor Department officials to target employers who give generously to the president’s party. They ensure that Medicaid benefits are still paid out to populations the president disapproves of.

Under current law, most civil servants may not be fired without “good cause” once they have served for a three-year probationary period. Protections like these are what prevents Trump from firing every civil servant who refuses to obey an illegal order.

And now Trump wants to eliminate this shield against unchecked presidential power." [Source]

Thank you Ian Millhiser.

I didn't think I missed anything. Just more racist dog whistles and hollow promises.

A whole lot of fear mongering. Now people are afraid of MS-13 because they supposedly killed two teen girls but no mention if teens killed by domestic terrorists like in Kentucky. Why the difference?

Fuck Butt Trumpet ... Joseph Kennedy is a ray of hope as Democrats are left to ponder the consequences of Hillary and her pitiful no-show campaign. Reminiscent of a young Barack Obama, Kennedy was masterful in his defiance and the message of empathy and concern for the powerless came thru loud and clear. Inspired choice to break with tradition and delivering the rebuttal to a live audience. Their reaction served to reinforce and amplify the message.

That is chilling, Field. I should have smelled that.

The MS-13, great new boogie-man to rally the dunderheads. Related... "finally end the horrible and dangerous practice of catch and release." Good play on words. Did someone write that just for his speech. Coming soon to the theater of the absurd.

Had to laugh at the, "war on energy," but was unable to crack a smile for beautiful, clean coal.

I think somebody showed Trump where Jesus told us to visit those in prison. See Trump's support for the Sessions war on marijuana for how he really feels about people locked up in private prisons.

Frightening that he wants to build more nukes on every level.

But the funniest line was something about caring for the needy, the underprivileged and the struggling all over the world. Comedy gold.

"But laws protecting civil servants against politically motivated firings are one of the foundations of liberal democracy."

There's the rub. This isn't a liberal democracy. It's supposed to be a constitutional republic. Big difference.

It's only claimed to be a "liberal democracy" by those wishing to sponge off the civil service tit and not have to worry about being cut loose for not doing a single thing.

Affirmative action is such a joke.

"who doesn’t want public employees who “fail the American people” to be removed? But laws protecting civil servants against politically motivated firings are one of the foundations of liberal democracy."

The executive branch decides how the laws will be executed (if Obama can decide that immigration law will not be enforced, Trump can decide that other laws will not be enforced.  Suck it.)  Civil servants who won't get with the program can obviously be fired for cause.  If you don't like it, you have to conclude that any civil servant who complied with DACA should have been fired for violating written immigration law.

But this is part of your civil war.  You will not accept the results of the 2016 election which gave us President Donald J. Trump.  You fight against the proper consequences of the vote.  The war hasn't gone as far as shooting yet, but that's just a matter of time.  Remember, YOU are responsible for it.

If you find yourself starving in the frigid dark in December 2018, after Americans have cut off your food, water, electricity and gas to force the rebels of the formerly American city of Philadelphia to surrender or die, remember that you had warning WELL in advance of the event and you deserve every last result thereof.

"Frightening that he wants to build more nukes on every level."

Name anyone killed by radiation at a commercial nuclear plant in the USA.  There aren't any.  Nukes are the USA's safest source of electric power, bar none.

dinthebeast said...

No you ignorant fuck, that's not how ionizing radiation works. It increases the probability that you get cancer depending on how much of it you are exposed to over how long.
Meaning there definitely have been people killed by radiation exposure at commercial nuclear power plants in the US, they just took a little longer to die.
Nuclear fission is the stupidest way to boil water ever, followed closely by the burning of coal.

Flying Junior said...

Actually Friend Anonymous, Trump was talking about building more nuclear bombs. The nuclear arsenal was renovated under Bush. We could take the best-preserved nuclear bomb from 1988 and give it a new coat of paint and a rebuild. That would be enough to start WWIII.

Obviously the motive to build more nukes is just to play to the base while making a pile of money. Even I don't believe that the madman actually wants to explode a nuclear bomb. I have been labelled an optimist. Runaway military spending coupled with the biggest tax cuts in history. You get that it doesn't matter to Trump if he brings our nation to its knees. Honey Badger doesn't care.

But since you bring it up. Nuclear power is poison fire. My own county has a big problem of how to deal with the removal and storage of the spent fuel in San Onofre, also know as the Grand Tetons. I am actually thankful that there was a problem with the water cooling system that leaked radioactive steam into the plant. At least it was taken off-line. The contract gave SDG&E sixty-five years to remove the nuclear material. There is some pressure to have that happen a little bit sooner and restore the coastal bluffs. Nuclear power is far too dangerous to be economical.

"If Trump is Racist then you Negroes are in good hands"

Trump is a legitimate civic nationalist, who pursues policies that are good for "Americans". Because they don't specifically exclude white people for the benefit of non-whites, the Left howls racist! at him 24/7.

Bit of advice: This is the best deal remaining to you. Trump offers you equal treatment and place at the table. If you reject this, the next guy will offer you neither.

Actually, the whole stated problem with using voter ID to make sure people aren't committing voter fraud, thereby disenfranchising legitimate voters, is that somehow blacks are not competent enough to get their free IDs. They seem to be pretty good at getting all their other free stuff, but when it comes to IDs, they just just have the capacities of, for example, poor white trailer trash.

mike from iowa said...

The whole problem with voter ID is stoopid fucking wingnuts got their heads together and found ways to make it harder for the poor, the elderly and POC to vote by closing DMV offices in poor-read Black- neighborhoods and move them far away. Then they closed them down to where they were only open for short periods of time. Then they decided to make elderly and poor provide birth certificates or driver's licenses which a disproportionate number of blacks and poor and elderly do not have.

Wisconsin moved to offices from downtown Madison which had bus service nearly to the front doors clear out in the sticks where the nearest bus stop is a third of a mile or more away. That will prevent poor, elderly, disabled etc people from having access. This was done deliberately and the courts have been taking notice of the deliberate attemopts to obstruct POC and others from participating.

Alabama closed down every office in majority black areas for the same reasons- to keep POC from voting. Back to Wisc. they were supposed to provide free ids but charged Poc and others 28 bucks a piece until they got caught. Of course under one party rule nothing happened to the wingnuts.

Patently obvious wasicu wasteys are racists and crooks- clear across the board. Bet they are born that way.

But that's a lie, there are no credible reports of voter fraud. But there is a case of the federal judiciary saying a state used "surgical precision" to disenfranchise voters. Fine, require ID's but what was up with closing DMV's in negro areas, limiting early voting, taking voting machines out of negro areas and limitimg hours? The whole voter fraud stuff was a ruse to cheat and we all know it. Hell, even the right leaning Supreme Court including Clarence Thomas knew it. GTFOH!

"No you ignorant fuck, that's not how ionizing radiation works. It increases the probability that you get cancer depending on how much of it you are exposed to over how long."

Yet isn't it strange that the population of Washington DC (average exposure from all natural sources, 76.7 mrem/year) has a higher cancer rate (477.0/100k from all sources) than Denver, CO at 428.5/100k (more than twice as much at 164.6 mrem/yr, same source)?

Summit Co. CO has the lowest cancer rates in the USA... despite having among the highest natural radiation exposures.  Those cosmic-ray muons add up.  They obviously do a lot less harm than oxygen radicals.

There are places where ionizing radiation is far higher than Colorado, like Ramsar in Iran.  These places often have anomalously low rates of cancer, especially radiation-related cancers like leukemia.  Face it, idiot.  You have been sold a bill of goods by a bunch of liars and you were too dumb to detect it... and not just on radiation.  Do the world a favor, eat a shotgun already.

"Nuclear power is far too dangerous to be economical."

Name three people killed by commercial nuclear power in the USA.  You'll be able name a lot more killed by commercial aviation.  So why not ban commercial aviation, since it's obviously far too dangerous?

"What's wrong with solar and wind? Geothermal can work well to cool and heat homes."

Does "they aren't there when and where you need them" count?

"Notice that Africa is not a world leader in technology."

Clean up your goddamn neighborhoods.. they look like city dumps.
Trash is one thing you have control over so pick up a broom, sweep your sidewalks and gutters and stop all of the god damn littering!!!!!

Black folks need to put away your guns and pick up some brooms...and books. You and your kids still can't read. Most of your kids are still 2 years behind according to grade level standardized testing.
You and your kids still can't speak....
"IS you hearing what I'm saying."
"WHERE your brain?"
"I'M is talking to you."
And let's not forget that even after 400 years and an education....you still don't add "ED" to past tense verb endings.

This is what happens when you're taught by black teachers in your black schools.
