If anyone brings up immigrants "breaking the law" remind them Trump does too

Just a few laws he has broken:

Charity fraud - Most regular folks go to jail for this
His fraud University
Foreign Emoluments Clause
Domestic Emoluments Clause

This site lists a number of them: https://www.quora.com/Has-Trump-broken-any-laws-yet

On another note, when they say the families should be separated because the law says so I tell them that Trump caved due to intense political pressure and signed an executive order stopping the practice. So that is the NEW law and since they are so big on laws being enforced they should support the new law that says they should not be separated.

New Survey Shows Young People Are Staying Liberal and Conservatives Are Dying Off

For obvious reasons, the broadly liberal demographic trends in American politics have received much less attention since the 2016 election. Yet the fact remains that America is politically sorted by generations in a way it never has before. The oldest voters are the most conservative, white, and Republican, and the youngest voters the most liberal, racially diverse, and Democratic. There is absolutely no sign the dynamic is abating during the Trump years. If anything, it is accelerating.

The most recent Pew Research Survey has more detail about the generational divide. It shows that the old saw that young people would naturally grow more conservative as they age, or that their Democratic loyalties were an idiosyncratic response to Barack Obama’s unique personal appeal, has not held. Younger voters have distinctly more liberal views than older voters:


Warning, most idiotic, repulsive conservative political cartoon I have seen recently

Because Gov. sponsored kidnapping of kids is perfectly moral. Those poor, poor conservatives are clearly the victims in all this. What will they do if they can't get away with child abuse anymore?

Watch live from LaGuardia Airport where Trump admin has sent immigrant children separated

from their parents:


Trump Supporters Fine With Locking Kids In Cages

Wikipedia Added US Border 'Detention Centers' to Its List of Concentration Camps

The detention centers along the US-Mexico border housing hundreds of migrant children who have been separated from their parents in the last six weeks are now included in Wikipedia's list of concentration camps, Gizmodo reports. It joins a dishearteningly long list of other sites of atrocity throughout history, from Dachau to the Soviet gulags to America's WWII-era Japanese internment camps.

"As part of the 2018 Trump administration family separation policy, nearly 2,000 immigrant children have been taken from their parents and placed in 'detention centers,'" the new section of the Wikipedia article currently reads. "These centers have been described by those in opposition to the policy as 'concentration camps.' The centers had previously been cited by Texas officials for more than 150 health violations."

The section has, unsurprisingly, ignited a string of debate and revisions since it was first added, with editors of the online encyclopedia arguing about the appropriateness of including these immigrant detention centers alongside Nazi extermination camps like Auschwitz. One user has called for the section to be locked "to prevent vandalism," but it is currently still open for edits.

Senator Jeff Merkley appreciation thread

I was on vacation when all this started to go down but unless I missed something it seems like it was Senator Jeff Merkley who got the ball rolling when he started attempting to get into the immigrant detention centers. This got the media to start covering this and as more and more people realized what was going on, it got out of Trump's control and reached a level of deserved outrage from the American people.

The battle on this issue is far from over but I wonder if hardly anyone would be aware of this Gov. sponsored child abuse yet if it had not been for his courageous attempts to draw attention to what was going on?

If Trump goes down I suspect many of his base may give up on politics

unless someone equally or more crazy comes along. That is if many of them don't die in an uprising against the "Deep State" they think took him down. I have heard a few of them say if he can't get stuff done like the wall, they would give up on politics.

These folks can only be motivated by an authoritarian cult leader type like Trump. They are primarily Jerry Springer, conspiracy types, completely out of touch with reality and if the GOP starts running someone moderate like a Romney or John Kasich who is respectful minorities and wants to mend fences with NATO etc., it won't be enough for them to grab for their ky jelly. In fact, someone like that would be a big turn off for them.

The real test to see if the country can shed itself of this infestation of want to be Natzi idiots will be to see if someone as crazy can't get the next nomination or gets clobbered in the general election. Their little dream world will be shattered and they would be demoralized with many of them giving up or a few only being brought out to vote with wedge issues. We will all be a lot wiser as to how fragile our Democracy is.
