MSM Bias ← Previous post Next post → Comments Swansonic Nov 02 2018 at 12:15 am I read today of an interview Jon Stewart gave a couple of days ago. He said that President Trump was turning the prestitutes’ narcissism against them and the prestitutes were taking the bait. In that battle he said that the President would win every time. Gotta agree with that. Our President’s a master at it….. Deplorable B Woodman Nov 02 2018 at 12:20 am The DemSM is coming to the battle of wits less than half armed. PaulS Nov 02 2018 at 8:17 am I saw what you did there. 😉 Maybe we need a new term for them? “DeciWits”? Oh, no…. got it! “DemWits”! Old Codger Nov 02 2018 at 8:40 am The Prez has no scruples regarding getting into a battle of with with an unarmed opponent. Old Codger Nov 02 2018 at 8:41 am meant to say a battle of WITS Random Internet Guy Nov 02 2018 at 3:11 am As Dr Reynolds would say, “Trump’s Troll Level – Galactic Overlord” Deplorable B Woodman Nov 02 2018 at 12:18 am As long as CNN has Acosta, and they both (CNN and Acosta) continue to do stoopid stuff, they will always have at least a FEW viewers, if only to catch the the stoopid stuff. CNN can be comedy gold. President Trump should be paying them to be his script writers and straight men. John Nov 02 2018 at 11:32 am Why? He gets them practically for free as it is. All it cost him is a few second a day on Twitter. Delilah T Nov 02 2018 at 12:25 am Seldom has there been anyone in that office with such an incredible sense of timing. Discussion elsewhere on the 14th amendment yesterday, including digging up the history of it and what it originally meant and how it may be changed by legislation to prevent anchor babies automatically getting citizenship. Now, wouldn’t that get the Dementednuts’ undies in a bunch? cmblake6 Nov 02 2018 at 12:59 am I researched both the 14th Amendment AND the original Article 2. No such critter as “birthright citizenship”. None. Unless you were born prior to 1776. Do a bit of research yourself, it’s time for my beddie byes. GWB Nov 02 2018 at 6:46 am I disagree on “no such critter”. The amendment clearly spells out exactly that. But, the practice of it being wide open to anyone crossing our border is NOT what was intended, nor what was written there. In any way, shape, or form. (Bonus learning: one of the reasons for writing laws – and even Constitutional amendments – VERY tightly, with limited scope, is so that no one can come along later and say your intent was otherwise. Well, not without being plainly partisan and dishonest.) PaulS Nov 02 2018 at 8:23 am Well remember, they are still having trouble with “shall not be infringed “, similarly with “under the jurisdiction there of “. Thank God it was written in plain English! Delilah T Nov 02 2018 at 8:35 am This is why there was such a very, very long discussion, even going back into English common law in the 17th century. Fronk! Nov 02 2018 at 7:26 am Ann Coulter’s column this week is enlightening on this subject: http://www.anncoulter.com/ Erik Nov 02 2018 at 12:55 pm Yup. For once, Trump is on the right side of a Constitutional issue (probably unintentionally). Tom Woods (MA History @ Harvard, PhD History @ Columbia if that impresses your liberal friends) has some very specific historical background on the subject in this podcast episode: https://tomwoods.com/ep-1273-birthright-citizenship-what-the-constitution-and-common-sense-say/ Pete231 Nov 02 2018 at 2:19 am Time to slide on over to the 7-11 and stock up on pretzels, popcorn, and beerverages. Looking forward to Tuesday night Red Wave blowout and the Dummytaards losing their shit when they get their ‘nads handed to them. The wailing and screeching will be glorious. “Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of da wimmin !” -Conan- Punta Gorda Nov 02 2018 at 3:17 am “Get to da Choppa!” Fronk! Nov 02 2018 at 7:23 am Like Unca Walt Nov 02 2018 at 11:22 am Staab imitating me, or I will clush your HET — with my erect nipples! GWB Nov 02 2018 at 6:49 am You know the Dems in the media and some of the politicos are now saying “What caravan? Trump’s scaring you with imaginary boogeymen.” Is this a preemptive strike because the invasion column is going to melt away because of Trump’s response? “Dang, this is really hard, and they’re likely to actually shoot us this time. Forget this! I’ll sneak over the old-fashioned way.” JTC Nov 02 2018 at 8:00 am “Mr. President, shouldn’t Democrats hold you responsible…? Don’t know about them, but I sure do…for shutting down illegal immigration and so much more. Responsibility, credit, potato, potahto… Delilah T Nov 02 2018 at 8:43 am I could sit here and quote dTrump all morning, but the sun is rising and my cat is pestering me to set up another paper bag for her cat cave. She destroyed the last one chasing imaginary trolls and rodents. In case anyone is wondering, Nevada ratified the Equal Rights Amendment last year, 35 years after the deadline, and Illinois just did the same thing in May. Only need one more state and it’s a done deal, even if the deadline has passed. But, gee whiz, it took 200 years for the Amendment regarding Congressional salary raises to finally be ratified and added to the Constitution. is this a great country, or what? Can I have some ice cream? CaptDMO Nov 02 2018 at 9:26 am Who knew that so-called Social media, and subsequent “Main Stream” Media, could be used like a laser pointer with pussies. Spin Drift Nov 02 2018 at 9:34 am If there was “birth right citizenship” why did it take an act of Congress to make Native Americans citizens? And that was in 1923. Can’t get anymore “born here” than an American Indian. Oh, it was that pesky “under jurisdiction” clause as American Indian’s fealty was to the Indian Nation Tribe to which they belonged. There are also other adjudicated cases (to the SCOTUS level) that speak directly to the language and meaning of the 14th. Spin Wishing it doesn’t make is so cupcake. Speaking of pastry, Acosta just seems to keep getting the bukkake cake from the Big D. Old Jimbo must like it or something. Swansonic Nov 02 2018 at 10:54 am More cofefe’, Jimbo? John Nov 02 2018 at 11:48 am As to the Caravan, according to those who actually know something about the subject (which is definitely _NOT_ our news media it seems) the Caravans are not meant to get all the way to the US border. They’re meant to only go as far as Mexico City through the hostile territory of the warring Cartels and gangs. Once in Mexico City, which is neutral territory, they then pay a particular Cartel for safe passage to the border. Calling attention to the Caravan is great political theater, but very little else. John Nov 02 2018 at 12:01 pm With regard to “birthright citizenship” apparently the only reference (and naturally the only citation needed by the Regressive Left) is to be found in a footnote made by Justice Brennan. I daresay the first time the current SCOTUS gets a chance to review this issue the “birthright citizenship” assumption will be very thoroughly torched, and the quickest path to such a review will be for the POTUS to make his executive order and have it challenged in court. Brad Nov 02 2018 at 1:44 pm The Don should write multiple Executive Orders requiring enforcement of the Fourteenth under the use of the exclusionary clause AS IT WAS USED AT THE TIME IT WAS WRITTEN. ‘Aliens’ excluded under a separate order. INVADERS under a separate order. Tourists under a separate order. Then, depending on what the lower level activist judges use to rationalize distorting the Fourteenth, appeals can be filed on them separately. Overturning even ONE of the inevitable activist rulings would weaken ALL the activist rulings. Brad Nov 02 2018 at 1:46 pm Oh, and opposing rulings would be more likely, forcing the issue to the SCOTUS. WayneM Nov 03 2018 at 1:02 am Jim “Look At ME” Acosta just can’t seem to get enough of being forcefed his own crap. What a maroon!! NotYetInACamp Nov 03 2018 at 2:34 am I loved posting that birthright citizenship did not exist in the LA Times way back before the Presidential campaign started and explaining it so they and their lawyers could understand it. All of the birthright advocates soon disappeared from the comment sections and the massive aggressive rallies with so many Mexican flags stopped. The clincher that all of them finally knew that the words of the 14th Amendment did not mean what they thought they meant was when DACA leaders got on you tube with some of them crying that “they” not only wanted to deport them, but “they” want to deport my little brothers and sisters born here in the USA. They got it. They completely understood what it means. The Progressives, Democrats, and other enemies of the USA that are working to fundamentally change the USA, are using this entire effort to continue their war to destroy the USA. They believe that the caravans is a good chance that it will gain them votes to win the House and Senate. If it was all that simple. The truth is the truth no matter how people lie or are deluding themselves, or being deluded.
