WHO CAN END INVESTIGATION
Which people can actually end Mueller’s investigation or set a deadline? Congress? Trump? Just scratching my head watching the shenanigans continue.
Editor’s Note: I believe either the president or the attorney general can fire Mueller, although it would not look good. It would seem as if they were trying to hide something.
I dislike sitting at my family seudos as my brothers, brother-in-law and their spouses talk more about wine and whiskey than the Shabbos or Yom Tov we are celebrating. The oohs and ahhs and comments as each one put down a fancy bottle at the table make me sick.
Is there any hope to curb the new drinking generation?
Editor’s Note: I agree with you 100%. Both the spending on drinks, and the amount of drinking going on has gotten out of hand. When it becomes such a dominant topic, it is not longer a recreation and should be curbed.
Is there any hope for the Supreme Court? Our generation is so deep in the gutter that we are busy with what aveiros people did years ago but yet when it comes to toi-aiva there is tolerance! I want to see Dianne Feinstein’s reaction if a judge with an alternative lifestyle is rejected to the Supreme Court. The fact is with the public schools the way they are, it is no chiddush that we have such menuvalim being considered as judges.
Editor’s Note: Unfortunately, it will get a lot worse before it can get better.
If you were president, what laws would you change?
I would make airlines pay passengers fifty dollars an hour for delays.
I would allow small guns for people over thirty without a history of violence for the past ten years, no mental health issues, and allow neighbors, acquaintances, or relatives to file a claim to stop his license application if they had a serious reason.
I would offer basic necessities without frills to every citizen.
I would say that illegal citizens should have no access to public services.
I would say prison inmates without a crime risk (a ninety-eight year old guy who murdered someone when he was twenty) should be let out and given support to restart his life.
Any additional ideas?
Editor’s Note: Article II of the US Constitution which defines the powers of the President. The President does not have the Constitutional power to effect any of the suggestions presented so far. The President does not make law. That’s the job of Congress. Over the years, Presidents, mostly Democrats starting with FDR, have arrogated some of the powers of Congress to themselves by issuing “Executive Orders” ala B. Obama (N.B. The Executive orders issued by the current President have been almost entirely used to rescind those issued by the previous White House infestation.) Nevertheless, the President has no Constitutional power to make the decrees listed by the OP. With respect to 2nd Amendment issues. Neither the President nor the Congress could make such a law . The President, or Congress, could no more arbitrarily modify the 2nd Amendment than they could limit free speech or allow warrant-less searches bu Police. The current law prohibits four classes of Citizens from possessing fire arms. Convicted felons, those convicted of misdemeanor spousal abuse, those adjudged incompetent by the court and those involuntarily committed, again by a court. Note that all four categories have been so prohibited, not by Presidential decree, but by due process.
HILLARY AT WORK
Hillary is at it again.
Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton drew a comparison Tuesday between the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election, saying that in both cases, a foreign power had attacked the United States, but that in the latter, the president had “done nothing.”
Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, also said she thinks Russian interference and other factors “certainly altered the outcome” in several parts of the country during the last campaign. She criticized President Donald Trump’s response to last year’s violence in Charlottesville, saying he “has thrown his lot in” with white nationalists.
Wow what a sore loser.
Editor’s Note: Obama and Hillary are such sore losers. The more they speak, they more sour grapes are being swallowed.
TRUMP CONTINUES HIS TACTICS
Trump is bullying again.
Trump attacked Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., arguing that he “destroyed Newark” while serving as mayor of New Jersey’s largest city. Trump went after Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., whom he derisively called “Da Nang Blumenthal” stemming from a controversy in 2010 when Blumenthal came under severe criticism for exaggerating his service during the Vietnam War.
And as he had repeatedly done in recent days, Trump chastised Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., for keeping private the allegation against Kavanaugh from Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of assaulting her when they were teenagers. Feinstein, Blumenthal and Booker all sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Feinstein has said she kept Ford’s allegation private at her request.
“The Democrats only know how to obstruct, demolish and destroy,” Trump told a raucous crowd here. “As we’ve seen in recent weeks, Democrats are willing to do anything and to hurt anyone to get their way, like they’re doing with Judge Kavanaugh.”
Trump added: “They’ve been trying to destroy him since the very first second he was announced.”
Editor’s Note: You can’t really fight success. Until we see Trump’s party lose a major election, it seems that his tactics are working. Let us see how the mid term elections unfold
