    I'm curious to know what the briefing for dispatching the national guard to the Mexican border on the eve the eighth round of NAFTA negotiations reads like.

    Why would the owner of the casino play his rest?

    I must be honest, it again feels like being Poland on the eve of WW2 but somehow it doesn't.
    acket.

    Quote from the LA times

    "What you've heard from the White House is the first I've heard," said Kurt M. Rauschenberg, a spokesman for the National Guard Bureau, the Pentagon agency that oversees state National Guard organizations.

    Deploying active-duty troops for domestic law enforcement is prohibited under a federal law known as the Posse Comitatus Act. In the past, however, the military has been used to aid the Border Patrol in a supporting role, without arrest authority.

    Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama mobilized National Guard troops to help the Border Patrol monitor parts of the border; actual policing was left to border agents. Whether Trump envisioned a more dramatic militarization was not clear until the White House issued its statement hours later. The president often speaks before his staff has a chance to fully vet and plan how to put his ideas into effect.

    Despite Trump's urgent language, the number of people apprehended crossing the border — generally considered a roughly accurate gauge of illegal crossings — has fallen sharply in recent years and is now at the lowest ebb since 1971, about one-fifth the level of the late 1990s, according to Border Patrol data.
    acket.

    Ironic, too, that Posse Comitatus is something that Alex Jones CONSTANTLY ranted about during the Bush and Obama years, what with his fear of a police state and the gub'ment rounding everyone up into FEMA camps... And now his best buddy Trump is about to do the same thing to "police (state) the border."

    It's a cheap shot, but I liked this thing I found on Twitter: Who wore it better?

    saw someone comment on fb that they've never seen Trump actually laugh. He does that stupid smirk when he thinks he's funny, but they're right, I've never seen him truly amused at anything to be able to laugh at it.

    That also scares me.

    Couldn't decide if this belonged in the Religion thread or the Politics thread, but ultimately decided here, as it's mostly about the damage being done to evangelicals when they continue to ignore or even encourage Trump's behavior. It's very long, but it's very good.
