      Just like they tried, but didn’t get away with, using the WH.gov page about #3wife-of-45 as an ad for her jewelry. This family and their cohorts are truly trying to use this administration as a way to add more to their pockets.

      Never do they criticize Trump – Conway was only repeating his words/thoughts. They are all mini Trumps

    Thank you, Nerdy, for these great jokes– somehow laughing is helping. And knowing PBO is smiling always soothes my terrors.

      omg this is the very worst and criminal. He talks/ tweets about “getting rid of the criminals” deporting folks for crimes.. and it’s all one lie after another. This woman has children here , all American citizens and they go after her, Her?? I effing hate Donald Trump and every single person that does his bidding.

      I’m so sorry she is being torn away from her family. I don’t understand. In 20 years, wouldn’t her papers for citizenship have been process in that time if she had started them? Why hasn’t she become a citizen? Does the story explain why she is still illegal?

    From Balloon Juice

    “The past is never dead; it’s not even past.” Via Tom Scocca’s twitter feed, a Dorothy Thompson Harper’s article from 1941:

    It is an interesting and somewhat macabre parlor game to play at a large gathering of one’s acquaintances: to speculate who in a showdown would go Nazi. By now, I think I know. I have gone through the experience many times—in Germany, in Austria, and in France. I have come to know the types: the born Nazis, the Nazis whom democracy itself has created, the certain-to-be fellow-travelers. And I also know those who never, under any conceivable circumstances, would become Nazis…

    Mr. B has risen beyond his real abilities by virtue of health, good looks, and being a good mixer. He married for money and he has done lots of other things for money. His code is not his own; it is that of his class—no worse, no better, He fits easily into whatever pattern is successful. That is his sole measure of value—success. Nazism as a minority movement would not attract him. As a movement likely to attain power, it would.

    The saturnine man over there talking with a lovely French emigree is already a Nazi. Mr. C is a brilliant and embittered intellectual. He was a poor white-trash Southern boy, a scholarship student at two universities where he took all the scholastic honors but was never invited to join a fraternity. His brilliant gifts won for him successively government positions, partnership in a prominent law firm, and eventually a highly paid job as a Wall Street adviser. He has always moved among important people and always been socially on the periphery. His colleagues have admired his brains and exploited them, but they have seldom invited him—or his wife—to dinner.

    He is a snob, loathing his own snobbery. He despises the men about him—he despises, for instance, Mr. B—because he knows that what he has had to achieve by relentless work men like B have won by knowing the right people. But his contempt is inextricably mingled with envy. Even more than he hates the class into which he has insecurely risen, does he hate the people from whom he came. He hates his mother and his father for being his parents. He loathes everything that reminds him of his origins and his humiliations. He is bitterly anti-Semitic because the social insecurity of the Jews reminds him of his own psychological insecurity.

    Pity he has utterly erased from his nature, and joy he has never known. He has an ambition, bitter and burning. It is to rise to such an eminence that no one can ever again humiliate him. Not to rule but to be the secret ruler, pulling the strings of puppets created by his brains. Already some of them are talking his language—though they have never met him…

    I think young D over there is the only born Nazi in the room. Young D is the spoiled only son of a doting mother. He has never been crossed in his life. He spends his time at the game of seeing what he can get away with. He is constantly arrested for speeding and his mother pays the fines. He has been ruthless toward two wives and his mother pays the alimony. His life is spent in sensation-seeking and theatricality. He is utterly inconsiderate of everybody. He is very good-looking, in a vacuous, cavalier way, and inordinately vain. He would certainly fancy himself in a uniform that gave him a chance to swagger and lord it over others…

    Mr. G is a very intellectual young man who was an infant prodigy. He has been concerned with general ideas since the age of ten and has one of those minds that can scintillatingly rationalize everything. I have known him for ten years and in that time have heard him enthusiastically explain Marx, social credit, technocracy, Keynesian economics, Chestertonian distributism, and everything else one can imagine. Mr. G will never be a Nazi, because he will never be anything. His brain operates quite apart from the rest of his apparatus. He will certainly be able, however, fully to explain and apologize for Nazism if it ever comes along. But Mr. G is always a “deviationist.” When he played with communism he was a Trotskyist; when he talked of Keynes it was to suggest improvement; Chesterton’s economic ideas were all right but he was too bound to Catholic philosophy. So we may be sure that Mr. G would be a Nazi with purse-lipped qualifications. He would certainly be purged…

    “This is a rare total penumbral eclipse of the Moon. While subtle, it should be visible as a distinct shading across the Moon at maximum eclipse. The eclipse will be visible from Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, South America, North America, Indian Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, and the eastern Pacific Ocean. Middle of eclipse: 7:33pm EST. 4:33pm PST.” ~ per Jim Maynard – Celestial Guide 2017.

    so with you. I struggle with my negative feelings towards the trumpkins and clan.

    • February 9, 2017 at 7:21 pm

      I also struggle, otter 44. I know it is because, at least in part, I cannot stop acting as if 45 and company are rational thinkers. I cannot seem to grasp that, if it makes sense, they will do the opposite. And I continue to get outraged when, after Republicans bloviate and claim to be appalled, they still put party before country. Therefore, I continue to *feel* off kilter when they are doing *them*.

    We SOOOO needed this ruling! And just to note, the government lost on every single point raised:

    1. President’s national security and immigration decisions are reviewable in a constitutional democracy
    2. nationwide reach of order is sound for immigration issues, citing the 5th circuit decision against PBO on DAPA
    3. no evidence to justify singling out these seven countries (visa issue before Congress different), government provided no evidence of attach by citizens of these countries
    4. evidence of DT’s statements may be used to establish intent to discriminate
    5. won’t limit order because no evidence WH won’t again change its mind (government lawyers claiming no longer applies to green card holders)

    and on and on…,..

    Oh happy day!
