Trump says he is considering an executive order on the 2020 census on.wsj.com/2Jf8aSQ

Good. Didn't Obama move the census operations into the WH claiming executive authority, and no one said a thing?

Hi guys. I fell out of bed last night and have a back spasm and a bump on my head.I feel like crap and am moving slow.

Porchlight

Heh, hrt. Time traveler confirmed.

hrtshpdbox

It's just too easy for Trump; if he uses an executive order to place a completely innocuous and common-sense question on the census, the average voter will shrug while watching the left and the media go nuts. An almost effortless win win.

It's all a long term thing. When I despair, it's because I don't think folks on the right have the patience for the long slog that substantive change will require.

It helps being a Christian and an optimist to prevent that kind of despair.

The Counterculture coalition (Communists, atheists, hippies, gays, etc) won the Counterculture War I that lasted for several decades without firing a shot.

We now have a MAGA Counterculture War trying to defeat the Leftist coalition. If the Leftists won the first Counterculture war without firing a shot shouldn't a similar strategy be the first course of action MAGA Patriots should use? Instead of resorting to a violent conflict of killing the Leftist enemy (many who are victims of Leftist indoctrination/brainwashing) as the first course of action wouldn't the better solution entail winning their hearts and minds and giving them a MAGA red pilling so they have an epiphany and come to the realization they have been mislead/indoctrinated/brainwashed?

I think that is what Trump is trying to do. He has successfully gotten the entire Leftist Powers That Be to display their true nature to the American public. I don't think that is going to help their recruiting effort. If Trump wins in a landslide in 2020 then IMO that is a sign that Team MAGA is winning and has momentum.

I don't know when I have been so angry at a politician as I was with Jeb Bush's creepy comment about presidents dying on July 4th.

This guy was ticked off, too.

Thanks, porch, I figured it was something like that. MSNBC never fails to find a new way to beclown itself.

He was an obvious POS from the first moment I set eyes on him, IMO.

Me, too. I felt the same about Clinton, who was also an obvious fraud from the get-go. I didn't feel that way about Carter, but maybe I was too young and trustful at the time.

".... I'd love to see all these anti-American turds get some comeuppance."

Oh, yes, I'm right there with you. I spend a lot of time wishing for the left's downfall. I cut up my Nike yoga gear the last time they showed their true colors, and rely on Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's Retribution:

"Though the mills of God grind slowly; Yet they grind exceeding small;
Though with patience He stands waiting, With exactness grinds He all."

I want them ground into dust.

Jane, Herman Cain described arguing with a liberal as SIN.

First they Switch the subject. When that doesn't work they then Ignore the facts. And when the first two techniques don't work they resort to Namecalling.

Jane

Cain got that right TK.

Threadkiller

When the transcript of the speech gets released I am willing to bet that Trump, unlike Obama, won't have the "airport" slip of the tounge removed.

I can't remember any specific transcript of Obama's but I do remember JOMers catching the airbrushing of his gaffes.

That's a great couple of Longfellow lines, joan, thanks.

jimmyk, bettor's have Gauff at just 8-to-1 to take the tournament; she's great, but it also shows how less-than-stellar the women's side is these days.

sbwaters

So it turns out that Trump’s teleprompter quit in the rain.

Had he been able to read it straight, the transcript would have been easy to post. Now they have to recreate it from video.

In the comments at henry's 12:15 someone posted the DoJ's request to the court that shined them:

That doesn't make sense to me, sbw. Surely someone had to program the teleprompter with some text to begin with.

You are absolutely correct wrt to Obama and the census.

Porch, the difference is "as written" vs "as read."

henry-have you seen this? https://strategy.data.gov/assets/docs/draft-2019-2020-federal-data-strategy-action-plan.pdf came out in June but was referenced in something that came out today.

"Promote democracy" opens all sorts of doors for the career employees.

Tom R

Of course you do, but IMO that's got to be the least important question on the list.

Then again it could be the most important question considering it set the stage for the entire SC investigation in the first place.

If that question is asked, my bet is whoever from the DOJ accompanies Mueller won't allow him to answer it. If he does answer it, I could see something like "my meeting with Trump was private and I will not reveal the topics of discussion out of respect for Executive Privilege (or something to that effect).

Hmmmm. Actually you still have a point, Porch.

The preprogrammed prompter is the same as "as written and has no bearing on "as read."

Either way, I posted the transcript above.

Trump said this morning that he could barely see the teleprompter due to the rain.

Jane--print out the text and say you'll give them a dollar for every "I" reference". If you're so inclined pt\rint out one of Obama's and suggest they give you a buck for every "I" they can see.

Porchlight

Thanks TK. Yes, "as read" is certainly worth knowing.

I'm just wondering how the teleprompter error (per sbw's earlier comment) would cause the loss of "as read" content. Unless the teleprompter is recording the speech and transcribing it somehow (but then there could be errors).

Oops, read too slow, TK!

President Trump says he's considering using executive order to reinstate citizenship question for 2020 census

"We're thinking about doing that, it's one of the ways," The Hill reported.

"I have a lot of respect for [Chief] Justice [John] Roberts — but he didn't like it, but he did say come back," the president added. "We could start the printing now and maybe do an addendum after we get a positive decision."
