Jim, I'm guilty, and I still think he did a good job as governor of FL. But there was much merriment had by all over my Jeb sentiment, I was also stridently anti-Trump, but I wised up a couple of months before the general, and voted the right way. My entire previous center-right Republicanism was turned on its head, and for the good; in particular, my view of immigration problems have done a 180.

box,

True, Jeb did a good job as gov. I am a Florida resident, and he kept my contribution to government low. He was also a great guy for education, not common core, but keeping the Step Up program going. We have more lower income kids able to choose private and parochial education than any other state.

Politics Over Art: 53 Illegal Immigrants Become 2019 Grammy Winners

Hollywood will jump at any opportunity to throw a middle finger at conservative policies, especially at immigration reform. Doubling down on it’s message of “Fuck The Wall,” the music industry threw three Grammy awards at a music album featuring the vocal stylings of 53 undocumented immigrants. Of course Billboard Music reported on it with pride.

The album titled “American Dreamers: Voices of Hope, Music, and Freedom” was written by the John Daversa Big Band, which features “53 undocumented Americans.” It won three Grammys during last Sunday’s awards show, one for “Best Large Jazz Ensemble,” another for “Best Instrumental Arrangement,” and another for “Best Improvised Jazz Solo.” But of course, the artistic statement has nothing to do with jazz solos, but everything to do with the band’s “dreamers."

Billboard wrote, “At the same time that the arguments over President Trump’s proposed border wall raged on as another U.S. government shutdown deadline loomed, ten of those “Dreamers” were at the Grammys in Los Angeles.”

JiB, Jeb did a fab job on settling up a statewide emergency planning operation as well. I don't know if it's been maintained, but it was very well thought out and probably saved many lives.

DID TRUMP GIVE AWAY HIS CLAIM OF A NATIONAL EMERGENCY?

I’ve wondered whether by signing the bipartisan funding bill, President Trump weakens his case that we face a national emergency. I don’t know that he does, it just seemed like a possibility worth discussing.

But today, Trump appeared truly to weaken his case. During a press event, Trump declared that he didn’t need to “do this” (i.e. declare the emergency), but he wanted to build the wall “much faster.”

Isn’t the statement that Trump didn’t need to declare the emergency an admission that there is no emergency? It sounds that way.

Why did Trump make the statement? I think his ego is to blame.

I agree. It was a dumb statement and might have killed the wall.

Your fight with OL is stupid, because no matter how much you rule, the entire point of this blog is that we all get to have our own opinion.

IMO you should see that as a blessing, not a curse.

This is TM’s blog.
I don’t think anyone else really runs it nor would I want them to.
All voices are important and respectful disagreement is ok.
I know sometimes people take things personally but I also believe that people are aware and are careful with those bloggers.
I don’t believe in hero worship of any public official.
They have a job to do which we pay them for.
I don’t feel that I have to defend President Trump.
He can do that for himself.People who criticize him in the Dem party and the Never Trumpers are jealous of him and his success.
He has a loyal family and maybe his detractors are missing that in their lives.
Blind belief in someone can be harmful only in the event that you refuse to see any mistakes.

You are right. It's a stupid fight. I will clam up because I shouldn't air silly irritations when they really are unimportant.

I certainly don't intend to run the blog. I post a lot of stories as a service to everyone, because I am up early and can scan what is on Twitter. I didn't intend to monopolize the blog at all!

If I am on here too much I apologize. I will pull back on posting and observe more.

I am very grateful for being welcomed here, for the friends I have made here, and the help people have given me.

Extraneus

Thanks, Janet.

So I did — I was successful, in that sense, but I want to do it faster. I could do the wall over a longer period of time. I didn’t need to do this. But I’d rather do it much faster. And I don’t have to do it for the election. I’ve already done a lot of wall, for the election — 2020. And the only reason we’re up here talking about this is because of the election, because they want to try and win an election, which it looks like they’re not going to be able to do. And this is one of the ways they think they can possibly win, is by obstruction and a lot of other nonsense.

And I think that I just want to get it done faster, that’s all.

This is a thread explaining that the money for the Wall comes from 3 separate sources, 2 of which are not within the Emergency Order and can be accessed immediately, while the Emergency Order winds its way through the courts.

"A spokeswoman for former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe denied that ..."

He's got a staff?

Probably more like a legal team waiting for the sword to drop.

Rocco

That 25th amendment discourse happened on May 16, 2017 per the NYT's. Mueller also interviewed for the FBI Directors job that same day, with Rosenstein tagging along. Yet Mueller was appointed Special Prosecutor the next day...something stinks! Why interview for the FBI when you must have known you were being appointed!

During their discussion, Mr. Rosenstein expressed frustration at how Mr. Trump had conducted the search for a new F.B.I. director, saying the president was failing to take the candidate interviews seriously. A handful of politicians and law enforcement officials, including Mr. McCabe, were under consideration.

To Mr. Rosenstein, the hiring process was emblematic of broader dysfunction stemming from the White House. He said both the process and the administration itself were in disarray, according to two people familiar with the discussion.

Mr. Rosenstein then raised the idea of wearing a recording device, or “wire,” as he put it, to secretly tape the president when he visited the White House. One participant asked whether Mr. Rosenstein was serious, and he replied animatedly that he was.

If not him, then Mr. McCabe or other F.B.I. officials interviewing with Mr. Trump for the job could perhaps wear a wire or otherwise record the president, Mr. Rosenstein offered. White House officials never checked his phone when he arrived for meetings there, Mr. Rosenstein added, implying it would be easy to secretly record Mr. Trump.

Three paragraphs later

At least two meetings took place on May 16 involving both Mr. McCabe and Mr. Rosenstein, the people familiar with the events of the day said. Mr. Rosenstein brought up the 25th Amendment during the first meeting of Justice Department officials, they said. A memo about the second meeting written by one participant, Lisa Page, a lawyer who worked for Mr. McCabe at the time, did not mention the topic.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/21/us/politics/rod-rosenstein-wear-wire-25th-amendment.html

And according to the president, Mueller interviewed for the FBI job the day before he appointed SP on May 17, 2017

We were interviewing replacements at the F.B.I. Did you know Mueller was one of the people that was being interviewed?

HABERMAN: I did, actually.

TRUMP: He was sitting in that chair. We had a wonderful meeting.

HABERMAN: Day before, right?

SCHMIDT: Did he want the job?

TRUMP: The day before! Of course, he was up here, and he wanted the job.

HABERMAN: And he made that clear to you? He would have——

________

TRUMP: So, now what happens is, he leaves the office. Rosenstein leaves the office. The next day, he is appointed special counsel. I said, what the hell is this all about? Talk about conflicts? But he was interviewing for the job. There were many other conflicts that I haven’t said, but I will at some point. So Jeff Sessions, Jeff Sessions gave some bad answers.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/19/us/politics/trump-interview-transcript.html?mtrref=t.co

Now you can consider the liberal rag and sources but the dates are correct AFAIK. So I ask again, why did Mueller interview for the FBI job the day before he was appointed SP? Could wearing a wire be that far fetched considering Rosenstein also signed a FISA to spy on Trump Americans. And I can't forget that Rosenstein wrote the memo recommending Comey's firing, then a few days later appointed Mueller who began an investigation for firing Comey.

The White House
Office of the Press Secretary
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 15, 2019
STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT


Today, I have signed into law H.J. Res. 31, the "Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2019" (the "Act"), which authorizes appropriations to fund the operation of a number of agencies in the Federal Government through September 30, 2019.

Certain provisions of the Act (such as Division F, under the heading "Contribution for International Peacekeeping Activities") would require advance notice to the Congress before the President may direct certain military actions or provide certain forms of military assistance. In signing the Act, I reiterate the well-established understanding of the executive branch that these types of provisions encompass only military actions for which providing advance notice is feasible and consistent with the President's constitutional authority and duty as Commander in Chief to ensure national security. In addition, Division C, section 527, and Division A, section 516, both restrict the transfer of Guantanamo detainees to the United States. I will treat these, and similar provisions, consistent with the President's constitutional authority as Commander in Chief.

Numerous provisions could, in certain circumstances, interfere with the exercise of the President's constitutional authorities to negotiate international agreements (such as Division C, sections 509, 518, and 530; and Division F, sections 7010(c) and 7013(a)), to articulate the position of the United States in international fora (such as Division F, sections 7025(c), 7029(a), (b)(1), 7031(d)(2), 7042(h)(1), 7043(g)(1), 7047(b)(3), 7054(b), and 7060(c)(2)(D), (3)), to receive ambassadors (such as Division F, section 7031(c)), and to recognize foreign governments (such as Division F, section 7047(b)(2)(A)). My Administration will treat each of these provisions consistent with the President's constitutional authorities with respect to foreign relations.

Division C, section 537, provides that the Department of Justice may not use any funds to prevent implementation of medical marijuana laws by various States and territories. I will treat this provision consistent with the President's constitutional responsibility to faithfully execute the laws of the United States.

Certain provisions within Division D, title II, under the heading "Office of Management and Budget -- Salaries and Expenses" impose restrictions on supervision by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) of work performed by executive departments and agencies, including provisos that no funds made available to OMB "may be expended for the altering of the annual work plan developed by the Corps of Engineers for submission to the Committees on Appropriations"; that "none of the funds provided in this or prior Acts shall be used, directly or indirectly, by the Office of Management and Budget, for evaluating or determining if water resource project or study reports submitted by the Chief of Engineers acting through the Secretary of the Army are in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and requirements relevant to the Civil Works water resource planning process"; and that "none of the funds appropriated in this Act for the Office of Management and Budget may be used for the purpose
of reviewing any agricultural marketing orders or any activities or regulations under the provisions of the Agricultural Marketing Agreement Act of 1937 (7 U.S.C. 601 et seq.)." The President has well-established authority to supervise and oversee the executive branch and to rely on subordinates, including aides within the Executive Office of the President, to assist in supervising the executive branch. Legislation that significantly impedes the President's ability to supervise the executive branch or obtain the assistance of aides in this function violates the separation of powers by undermining the President's ability to fulfill his constitutional responsibilities, including the responsibility to faithfully execute the laws of the United States. My Administration will, therefore, construe these restrictions in Division C, title II consistent with these Presidential duties.

Several provisions (such as Division F, section 7041(b)(3)) mandate or regulate the submission of certain executive branch information to the Congress. I will treat these provisions in a manner consistent with the President's constitutional authority to withhold information that could impair foreign relations, national security, the deliberative processes of the executive branch, or the performance of the President's constitutional duties. In particular, Division D, section 713, prohibits the use of appropriations to pay the salary of any Federal officer or employee who interferes with or prohibits certain official communications between Federal employees and Members of Congress or of any Federal officer or employee who takes adverse action against an officer or employee because of such communications. I will construe these provisions not to apply to circumstances that would detract from my authority to supervise, control, and correct communications by Federal officers and employees with
the Congress related to their official duties, including in cases where such communications would be unlawful or could reveal confidential information protected by executive privilege.

Certain provisions (such as Division F, section 7064; and Division G, section 418) prohibit the use of funds to deny an Inspector General access to agency records or documents. I will construe these, and similar provisions, consistent with my authority to control the dissemination of information protected by executive privilege.

Certain provisions prohibit the use of funds to recommend certain legislation to the Congress (Division B, section 715), or require recommendations of certain legislation to the Congress (Division A, section 537). Because the Constitution gives the President the authority to recommend "such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient", my Administration will continue the practice of treating provisions like these as advisory and non-binding.

Numerous provisions purport, in certain circumstances, to condition the authority of officers to spend or reallocate funds on the approval of congressional committees (Division B, sections 702, 706, and 716(a), (b); Division E, sections 403 and 409; Division G, sections 188, 405, and 406). These are impermissible forms of congressional aggrandizement in the execution of the laws other than by the enactment of statutes. My Administration will make appropriate efforts to notify the relevant committees before taking the specified actions and will accord the recommendations of such committees all appropriate and serious consideration, but it will not treat spending decisions as dependent on the approval of congressional committees.

The white hat theory is that the FBI job story is part of the ruse and that he was there with Rosey and Trump discussing the pending special counsel investigation.

My opinion, based on nothing, is that DJT just wanted to pick the brain of a former FBI director of what he thought of some potential choices, while having an already jaundiced view of what type of director he was. I'm thinking in his bidness dealings that Trump already knew a few FBI agents, maybe more than a few.

I do not understand why Manafort is in solitary confinement. Has his attorney filed any sort of protest? Is his life in danger so that he has to be kept by himself?

In the Enron case, Andrew Weissmann had minor figures locked up in prisons also housing violent and dangerous criminals. He finds sympathetic judges to exact the most excessive punishments possible in part, I guess, to intimidate other defendants.

It's really a disgrace that this still happens and frankly Trump has been a disappointment for allowing this to continue.

1) MM, I value your efforts early in the morning because until I have a half a pot of coffee in me I'm worthless, so no way I'm doing it.

2) We don't need no steenkin' hall monitors or thought police.

3) I'm sure at one time or another I have irritated most everyone here, and vice versa. C'est la vie.

4) Nobody is getting a grade, and no one gets to assign one, despite what they might think.

Should be a great concert, Dave. I'm sure you know I'm a big Berne fan and the Ches Smith trio disc from a couple years ago received mucho listening time.

The only music concert I've taken Mrs H to lately was the Henry Threadgill Zooid with Oberlin Orchestra additions at the Art Museum. Being at the Art Museum was the major draw.

MM, I always tune in each morning to see your posts to see if anything interesting has occurred.

You keep doing what you do.

The blog is better for you efforts.

Significant flooding was reported today around Palm Springs, California, as the city saw its 3rd wettest day on record. Flooding made some roads completely impassable: https://t.co/cxfrH2B988 pic.twitter.com/aqqniAxVeC

Video at link, and this amount of flooding really shocked me. Palm Springs!

We could all use a smile about now.

In Mexico this dog walked through a parade for the Pope thinking it was for him.

We haven't had much snow this year around these parts, so some schools are coming up with other reasons to close.
