Washington Post Confirms Anti-LGBT Executive Order

This afternoon White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer dodged a direct question about a rumored anti-LGBT executive order. An hour after his press briefing concluded, Washington Post reporter Josh Rogin tweeted that a “draft” version of such an order does exist and targets adoption rights among other issues.

Trump supporters are responding to Rogin on Twitter, accusing him of “needlessly spreading hysteria” among other similar claims. The Log Cabin Republicans have yet to publicly react. At this writing the most recent tweet on their feed declares that “The GOP is focused on being more inclusive.”

      The nice grandmotherly cashier at my local Michael’s asked me why i was buying poster board. When I told her to protest, “Oh, honey, get the cheap foam board over there. It works so much better. I made sure we have lots on hand for good people like you.”

      • Cousin Bleh

        Smart woman. The foam board doesn’t sway back and forth like regular poster board.

        • It’s also lighter to carry for long periods of time.

      thats gandolfs name in the elvish language.
      gandolf who made the races stop their warring and suspicions of each other to fight the great evil. Gandolf was a uniter. and he also spoke every language in middle earth AND he was ejumakated too

      exactly the opposite of the xenophobic commenter.

      …or is it to prevent his reflex to grab her by the pussy? (Actually, Donald is reportedly afraid of stairs and ramps.)

      • TK

        I can’t wait to see him eventually trip on the steps then…one thing to look forward to

        • johncAtl

          It’s a lot of steps to reach the door of a 747. Or to reach the ground when he falls.

          • djcoastermark

            Please let there be cameras everytime he has to go down those stairs. Btw, long time no see welcome back (a tad late on my part)

            Happy thoughts. Happy, happy, happy thoughts.

            (and Happy Monday hugs to you, Miss Kitty!)

          • So that is why he used the down escalator to announce his running?

          • McSwagg

            Too bad he didn’t have a loose shoe string to get caught in that escalator.

          • RoFaWh

            Watch for him to come down steps sideways.

            My back issues make that necessary sometimes.

          • djcoastermark

            I was thinking that eventually, if there’s no one to hold his hand, that he will sit down and scoot down the stairs in terror. Sorry to hear about your back though. That must be awful.

        • safari

          Kellyanne was reportedly on a different floor. That makes me happy.

            “He’s grabbed by pussy for the last time,” she proclaimed.
            “Does that mean he has grabbed your pussy before?” the reporter asked.

            Why was she on the floor? She couldn’t do it on the couch? What poor soul is throwing up after doing it with her? Inquiring minds want to knoiw…

        • TampaDink

          It will be fun to watch him stepping off of Air Force One. I’m sure he won’t be too afraid of those steps, as long as there is a red carpet & plenty of paparazzi waiting at the bottom.

          • Stephen Elliot Phillips

            “Max, im ready for my closeup”

          • TampaDink

            Smile for the camera, Hair Furor….as you writhe in agony on the red carpet and realize that is smells like piss.

          • He’ll install an escalator and state that people needed more time to see him arrive. LOL

          • TampaDink

            That or one of those massive hoist containers…which he’d have outfitted in gold leaf & emblazoned with his family crest….sort of a large waiting room that is lowered to the ground for his royal heinous.

      • Dazzer

        The point has been made many times in the UK press that any sensible woman would grab both of Trump’s hands as a pre-emptive defence against any attack he might make.

        Also, she made the discreet point that her hands are bigger than his.

        Can’t see his feet when he looks down.

        It disorients one.

        People tell him he has a penis and he believes them because he’s saddled with supporting Barron for another 8 years.

        You will be EXTERMINATED! Gosh I miss good Dr. Who. (I quit watching after Peter Davison.

        • NZArtist

          My flatmate and I watched every single episode of Dr Who, from the very first William Hartnel (even the terrible reconstructed episodes from promotional stills, because all the video was lost), right up to the present day Peter Capaldi.
          They are all fantastic. Each new Doctor takes some getting used to, but they all have wonderful unique interpretations of The Doctor. They are *all* good.
          It’s taken more than two years to get through them all though. 🙂

          • DReel

            I’m sure if I gave the newer ones a chance they’d be acceptable. I started watching when I was about 10 during first runs of Tom Baker. Later I went back and watched the older doctors and gained an appreciation for the morphing character that IS the doctor. But I couldn’t get back into it after Peter Davison’s doctor left. Maybe I’ll give the newer ones a try … it’s SUPER easy to binge watch these days. BTW, Netflix’s Sense8 is AWESOME 🙂

          • Raising_Rlyeh

            Capaldi has had some very bad episodes though like Kill The Moon. I’m still going to watch. I just want the Rani or Romana to show up.

          • NZArtist

            All the doctors have had some embarrassingly bad episodes. Blame the writers.
            Peter Capaldi has also had some absolutely brilliant episodes.

          • Raising_Rlyeh

            Oh, I know. My favorites doctors are Tom Bake and Smith. But the cheesiness of some of the earlier episodes is quite funny. The most enjoyably bad is The Horns of the Nimon. Youtube took down the original clip, but their is a remix of the best scene
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98MxxpzIoyg

            there’s also a fun comparison made between Graham Crowden (Soldeed in The Horns of Nimon) with the equally melodramatic Barbara Kellerman (Jadis, the White Witch)

    • MonochromeMouse

      I’m still pretty convinced we’re in an episode of American Horror Story and this is just the cold open, pretty soon everything’s going to be replaced with Charlie Couser music and surrealist imagery before presumably trump being caught in some kind of gay sex scandal with bannon and sessions and then some murder ghosts.

      • RoFaWh

        I seriously doubt the orange asshole has enough imagination to engage in gay sex with anyone in any way.

        I wonder if he fucks Ivanka in the ass????

        • MonochromeMouse

          No but if this is some elaborate Ryan Murphy VR/AR thing then someone important to the plot has to randomly engage in some kind of weird gay sex act, most likely involving at least one murder ghost.

    • TampaDink

      Maybe he needs to be treated for his phobia. I suggest finding a very long staircase, taking him to the top….and pushing him. By the time his fat ass reaches the bottom, perhaps he will no longer be afraid of stairs…but terrified of the person who does the honor of helping him.

            I agree. I live in a small town surrounded by Trump voting gunnuts. I keep a low profile.

          Sam Bee’s story about Obomber the deporter was built on the case of a young girl born in a Thai refugee camp (so she can’t go back to the land of her racial origin. They’ve already said no.)

          Why is she getting kicked out of the USA? Why was she detained for months? College, ecstasy in her pocket and too dumb to say it was for her personal use, rather than she was carrying for friends. (although one doubts that would have changed things much.)

          Nothing wrong with an overabundance of caution.

          A few weeks of a good person keeping their head down is wise counsel.

        At least you’re still commenting.

        When UK universities went on rent strike to protest Thatcher’s DHSS cuts, international students (non-UK, non-EU, non-Commonwealth) were advised by their rentstriking peers and student union reps “first and foremost, pay your rent! We’re protected and cannot be evicted, while you aren’t and could: we need you here for support.” Same sentiment applies here: do what you need to do for yourself to stay safe, and support those of us who can protest.

            He could try London City airport instead, and we’ll forget to mention the runway’s far too short and he’ll end up ditching in the River Thames.
            The others at Gatwick and Luton don’t have that watery advantage.

          • AtticusP

            Maybe he’ll stomp his tiny orange foot and demand to land at Heathrow or not at all.

            Remember when Trump said, when the Chinese didn’t roll out the red carpet for President Obama, that had he (Trump) been POTUS, he would have gotten right back on Air Force One and flown back to Washington.

            The 45th POTUS is the quintessential stereotype of the ugly American. Not a day has gone by since his swearing-in when I haven’t been embarrassed to admit he’s the leader of my country. And that’s a sad thing.

            I would put nothing past this pea-like brain and mountain-like ego. It’s a deadly combination, and things won’t end well.

        It’s Nazi Germany.

        Hitler didn’t start with the camps. He started with laws and enshrine discrimination against a targeted minority group.

        First he started with Jews, then progressed to other groups.

        Trump started with Muslims… and we’re next.

        Milo wanted this. He wanted concentration camps.

          At this point, any horrible thing that happens to Milo will be 100% earned and deserved by him, I would not condemn anyone who did absolutely anything bad to him with absolutely no limits.

            I’d like to forestall the excuses for martial law as along as possible. The second they can arrest for ‘looting / arson / riots’ they will. There’s a long history of success with intentional non-violence.

            “it would be a shame if something happened to this fine establishment”

          • MonochromeMouse

            That’s an example of extortion not advocation of violence but nice try. Advocating violence would be saying something like “Hey ________ is bad, go kill them!” condoning violence is “Well looks like someone killed _______, can’t say they didn’t have it coming though.”

          • Ribb Rotgut

            If you refuse to condemn it, then you condone it.

          • MonochromeMouse

            Yes, but condoning is very different from advocating.

          • Ribb Rotgut

            You’re making a moral distinction without a significant difference.

            Trying playing “neutral” on whether your political enemies deserve violence is cowardly.

          • MonochromeMouse

            Condoning something is saying that you do not find something immoral, advocating something is encouraging something to happen.

            I think “Ribb Rotgut” is short for “Ribbit (Pepe) Rotgut”.

          • Ribb Rotgut

            Not really. I am a left-leaning moderate who doles it out to both sides. Read my history if you like.

          • Ribb Rotgut

            “absolutely anything bad to him with absolutely no limits”

            So violence, torture, anything. That’s despicable fascism. The very thing the left asserts it’s against.

            I remember making a comment a while ago to a conservative saying how I only saw language advocating violence coming from conservatives on websites, like Breitbart in particular.

            Now, I see open advocating of violence coming from liberals everywhere. And I see it everywhere on video too.

            Did you see the video where an anti-Trump protestor sets a Trump supporter’s hair on fire?

            Liberals defending the cowardly sucker punching of Richard Spencer, a deplorable human being.

            I saw it during the campaign at anti-Trump protests. I see it at the anti-Milo protests.

            Antifa violence is now being accepted on the American left. Ironically, that is fascism.

            That is what I mean.

          • MonochromeMouse

            Violence is not fascism, you have no idea what you are talking about with that bullshit line of reasoning. And for the record, I do 100% advocate, not just condone but advocate, punching Nazis.

          • Ribb Rotgut

            Meanwhile the definition of “Nazi” is expanding to include people on the right who aren’t Nazis.

            I predict much more violence coming from the left in the next 4 years justified by them using the “It’s ok to hit Nazis” excuse. It’s gonna get ugly.

          • pch1013

            Yes, because the only correct way to defeat violent fascists is with fruit baskets and sincere expressions of concern.

          • Ribb Rotgut

            I see way more violence coming from antifas and leftists than I do coming from the right.

        Looks like an “over-reach” by Putin.

      • Dazzer

        LOL. Theresa May, unelected Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland went on the record today saying that the unprecedented petition of 1.5 million votes against Trump getting an official State Visit was a mere “populism poll”.

        I love the way that the fascist-enablers are using any words they can beg, steal or borrow to insult other people.

        • AtticusP

          Here’s hoping that Trump’s motorcade route through London is lined with tens of thousands of happy Londoners baring their bottoms to the leader of the free world and his trusty sidekick, Theresa.

    guessing the adoption part will be allowing the Catholic adoption agencies to not place kids with lgbt parents. and still get federal funds.
    a pet issues for years with the antigay right.

    • lymis

      That alone would be bad enough.

      But I’ve been following that issue casually for decades, and an additional factor that rarely gets mentioned is that the children themselves are often wards of the state and turned over to adoption agencies for placement, not just Catholic orphans or the children of Catholics who don’t choose to raise them and turn them over to Catholic adoption agencies. Very often, the kids aren’t Catholic and don’t particularly want to be, even if they’re old enough to choose.

      Most adoption agencies would preference placing a child old enough to have a religious tradition with parents of that tradition, if they were available.

      So this is the government providing children who often aren’t Catholic to Catholic agencies and paying them to place them in Catholic homes, or to stay stuck in foster care or orphanages when perfectly capable loving parents are available.

    • NancyP

      MOST ADOPTIONS ARE COVERED BY STATE JURISDICTIONI!!!
      Feds are not involved in adoption, aside from providing citizenship documentation for foreign adoptees. I suppose that they could screw that up for LGBT couples.
      I think that there is a limit to what Trump can do by fiat on this issue – the money comes at the state level, and lawsuits go from state to federal, so never come near the executive branch.

      • David Walker

        But how many states are controlled by the banana republican’ts? I think that will factor into this, too.

      • Cousin Bleh

          “If the president does it, that means that it is not illegal.’

      • Most people in America aren’t Muslim. That doesn’t make discrimination against them right.

        There are adoptions which are indeed affected by federal law, including interstate adoptions as well as international. Moreover, there are supposed to be considerations at the federal level when an adoption agency receives federal funding.

    Barack Obama signed 275 Executive Orders during his 8 years in office, averaging 34.6 per year. Fewer than both Bush II and Bill Clinton.

    Donald Trump has issued 7 Executive Orders in just .027 years. He is on track to averaging 296.3 per year – more than any other President in U.S. history.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_federal_executive_orders

    • j.martindale

      Well, sort of yes, sort of no. He issued orders of this sort, but named them something else. It was basically a ruse.

    • Yeah, well, that’s his plan for being a dictator: Simply order shit to be done via EO.

      Now we know why the GOPers kept complaining EOs were an authoritarian’s tool: Because that’s exactly how they wanted to use them, only for their radical far-right agenda.

      • RoFaWh

        The real issue, or so it seems to me, is that the Democratic Party’s analysts never realized just how many people in the US were completely disaffected from all the social progress the US has made in recent decades.

  • lymis

    The GOP is certainly including more people in the lists of those they are disenfranchising and screwing over.

    I guess that counts as being inclusive.

    • RoFaWh

      Of course!

      If they could identify those who voted for Ms. Clinton, they’d disenfranchise them too, in the blink of an eye.

      Several JMG commenters have said “this is not going to end well.” I’ll be bolder and say it will end with assassinations, a revolution, or breakup of the USA. Way to go, deplorables!

      Afterthought: there’s something deeply wrong with a country in which a significant fraction of the population can be conned into voted for an outright fascist madman. Another adage may apply too: all good things come to an end.

      Afterafterthought: And what’s the root problem? The failure to carry on with Reconstruction after the Civil War. Southern whites should have been sent, one and all, for brainwashing and every last vestige of racism in them eradicated.

      • McSwagg

        I’ve noticed that in Oval Office photos there is a portrait of Andrew Jackson Johnson in the background. He’s the President that ended Reconstruction. This crew is blatantly telegraphing their intents.

        • Mike_in_the_Tundra

          Andrew Jackson died in 1845. Reconstruction started in 1865.

          • McSwagg

            Thanks, edited.

          • Jerry

            And Johnson was being impeached because of Reconstruction (mainly), but it failed in the Senate by one or two votes.

        • pch1013

          That would be Andrew *Johnson*.

          • Mike_in_the_Tundra

            That works.

          I’m pretty sure that’s Andrew Jackson on the wall. That, too, would answer a lot of things . . . https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/067b83de8a47318aa6fd32d31eeb26fd9ee84f4fdd62db7e3c453710bd714c46.jpg

          • Acronym Jim

            That’s definitely Andrew Jackson’s portrait and definitely not a harbinger of good things to come.

          • LA Julian

            Jackson is famous for the Trail of Tears.

            Trump is invested in NODAPL.

            Jackson is famous for telling the judge who told him he could NOT legally deport all the Cherokee to go ahead and enforce his ruling.

            CBP is defying the federal judges who halted the EO, and now the Acting AG of the USA is telling DoJ not to cooperate with Trump in enforcing it, that it’s unconstitutional…

            We’re only on Day 10 of the worst remake of 7 Days In May, and like an angry dad saying ‘Don’t make me angry,’ Donald keeps warning about WW3…

          • boatboy_srq

            Yep, that’s Jackson. Nativist, protectionist, goldbug, anti-everything. Calhoun is a bit easier to understand after reading about Jackson’s administration.

        • Jerry

          Actually, Reconstruction was ended with the election of Rutherford Hayes. He lost the election to Tilden, but neither had enough electoral votes. So the southern electors voted for Republican Hayes if he would remove all Reconstruction restrictions on their states.

    Guaranteed that when he does sign the anti-LGBT executive order there won’t be nearly as much outrage as there is over the immigrant ban. In fact, many who are outraged over Trumps xenophobia will be fully on board with, or unconcerned about, his homo/transphobia.

    • djcoastermark

      I hope you are wrong, but something tells me…..

        It won’t work. While a lot of blacks are still mired in poverty, crime, and grubby slums, a significant number have escaped and are about as deeply embedded in society as any other group.

  • David Walker

    I had my shrink appointment today. He is an admitted republican, and we’ve discussed that. I have not asked him how he voted…I have my limits, even with professionals with proven results. Neither of us knew about this proposed assault on LGBTQs, but he likes the many demonstrations. I gave him several examples of the Liar lying (thanks guys) including today’s blaming of Delta’s huge computer breakdown. We talked about how he’s not sure if I’m abusing Klonopin to keep me kind of sane and sort of balanced. I said that I wished that the Democrats would appoint a psychologist and the republicans would appoint a psychologist and meet the the asshole-in-chief, whether in separate sessions or in a joint one, then the two get together and arrive at a conclusion whether the current resident at the White House is sane enough to be president. He looked a little startled but started nodding his head. He agreed.
    Like most straight people, he doesn’t keep up on gay news, so the possibility of internment camps was new to him. I told him that if we are carted off to internment camps, separate from the Muslim and non-Muslim brown people and whoever else is out of favor, ours will be the most fabulous. He wasn’t quite sure how to take that.

    • Mike_in_the_Tundra

        • MonochromeMouse

          kratom is more for pain than anxiety, it reacts simmilar to an opioid without containing any opium and thus none (or at least far fewer) of the negative side effects of opioids.

          • Bj Lincoln

            Because people are using that to get off of opioids, the government wants to make it illegal. Naturally.

          • David Walker

            Ah! So that IS what the Liberal Redneck was talking about back in the fall. I’ve looked it up and one of the sites has “Still legal in US as of 1/13/17.” Well, maybe it’s worth looking into, then.

          • William

            Think of the Pharmaceutical company CEOs! If Oxycontin sales plummeted some of those executives couldn’t afford a third home.

          • MonochromeMouse

            Yup, the pharmacutical industry is in a panic, Kratom works great for patients with a medical need for opiods and for recreation users who like to abuse opioids, with a much lower chance of addiction and the fact that it can be grown in a garden in most climates and extracted fairly easily means that big pharma is about to lose its two biggest consumer bases.

          • Rand503

            I’m liking Clonazepam .5 mg, and highly recommend it. I have it for when things get really crazy at work, but I’ve been taking it more often since the election. A half pill does it for me, no spaciness or sleepiness, just does a very nice job of taking the edge off without dulling any senses. With my Rx plan it’s like $2 for qty 90.

          • William

            I did the rounds of psychoactive medications years ago. After the last one had me twitching and jerking like a junkie in withdrawl, I decided to give them all a wide berth. I have Valium, so far they all still are in the pill bottle.

          • RoFaWh

            Not always. I had to give weed up after determining that it aggravated my back problem to the point of wanting to run down the street naked while screaming. It may have been interacting with the opiates my doc prescribed.

          • MonochromeMouse

            Yeah, that sounds like a drug interaction problem, I’ve known a couple of people to have weird stuff happen when they smoke it too and they were also on prescription stuff.

            oh no, you still get stoned off kratom, you can’t drive after using it or anything, but you don’t get constipated or sweaty and there’s no comedown when it wears off, plus it is a lot harder to develop an addiction to kratom than it is any opioids.

      • David Walker

        That’s still out-of-pocket. PA has legalized medical weed, but that’s as far as it’s gone.

        • Lars Littlefield

          Maybe find some blotter Acid and cut it into very tiny tiny pieces, then use them to microdose yourself every couple of weeks. A microdose will not cause you to see Vishnu or paisley visuals. It’s just enough to perk you up for several houre and maybe smile for no reason. Lots of us are doing it and having great success. But I’d still keep getting those klonopine scripts filled. One can never have enough klonopine around. Be safe. Best of luck.

        • Stogiebear

          If your insurance covers it and it doesn’t adversely interact with your other meds ask your shrink if he’ll prescribe Marinol for you until your insurance covers the vegetable. Marketed for pain — perhaps you have some this could help. And as far as it being a “new drug” — it’s at least 14 years old. My stepson took it while being treated for Ewing’s Sarcoma.

            I had a few friends taking Marinol back in the 90’s for HIV related reasons….so it has definitely been around more than 10 yrs.

            My Vancouver psych friend’s late husband had an Rx for Marinol. After the husband died, he (the V.p.) found it while clearing out the dear departed’s stuff, and tried a tab. Said it induced a state of profound bestonedment.

      I’m lucky. My counselor is gay and he keeps up on the news. The clinic I go to caters to the LGBT population of Baltimore and Baltimore County. The problem is they went from a non-profit to a for-profit. This has caused all sorts of problems including doctors fired and leaving. Those left are over worked and not giving the same service. My doctor just left and I made it clear I will not be stuck waiting for hours on my appointment to see someone different every trip. I can find that closer to home. Lots of people are leaving. Having healthcare in a gay friendly place makes a big difference.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      My med-check man openly shared with me in Dec. 16 that a LOT of people came in looking for ‘scrips after Drumpf’s election.

      • David Walker

        Mine is still remarking on the number of his clients/patients for whom it not just an issue but is in some ways making them (and me) worse. Fear, anger, hate, personal isolation, and much more are appearing in far greater numbers and for a longer time than he’s ever experienced, and he’s an old fart like me. The other thing is that he’s seen it for individual reasons, but this is coming out of DC and there’s no denying it.

        • TuuxKabin

          Seeing my dermatologist today, we go back about 40 years, used to work together, had a bromance before we knew what it is, he described it as ‘situational depression.’ I agreed, we’re definitely in depressing situation. He did a minor cosmetic deep freeze removal of a dark spot on the back side of my hand and three to my scalp that are pre cancerous. He wrote it up as four to the scalp because my coverage will cover it on the scalp, but not the cosmetic one. I’m thankful for long term friendships with medical staff I worked with years ago.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      We talked about how he’s not sure if I’m abusing Klonopin to keep me kind of sane and sort of balanced.

    • Ben in Oakland

      I think you are quite right here.

    • There is and can be jurisdiction when the adoption agency in question receives federal funding, as many of them do.

      The adoption side is just one small piece of this attempt to declare, by Presidential dictatorial fiat, that all forms of anti-LGBT discrimination are federally legal from here on out. And with the broad wording allowing for any federal employee to be fired for being LGBT, the armed forces could simply start firing LGBT servicemen and -women again, too. All those Title IX interpretations from Obama’s administration to try to tamp down anti-LGBT discrimination? Gone.

          I’d never wish upon someone something I never had. At 50 you’re old enough to get the vaccine up here, costs $ but… At 49 years and 49 weeks I broke out in them. Three months later and the scars are still healing, slowly…

          I don’t care how old they are, let them get them naow. Even if they’ve had them before.

          Shingles is something your mum would have known about, it’s something you might get if you’ve ever had chicken pox. And chicken pox protects against some other nasty virus’ so it used to be common to move the kids around to make sure they got it.

          • RoFaWh

            Your last sentence isn’t my understanding. It was that the anti-vaxxers throw chicken pox parties since it’s inevitable that unvaccinated kids will get the disease. I think (n.b., think) the anti-vaxxers view it as creating “natural” immunity.

            Goddamned fools.

          • Earl

            In the really old days, prior to things like the smallpox vaccine, it was thought that if you had the chicken pox you’d not get the smallpox. I’m not sure if that’s true, but I did hear the story from my gran. (who was born in the 1890s)

            If you can use the modern vaccines, you bloody well should. It’s idiotic not to.

          • another_steve

            All kidding aside, shingles is a terrible thing. I’ve had friends and relatives who’ve been there, and it was awful.

    We need to lay this one alongside the other new policies, because a single pattern is emerging: a narrow Christian sectarian ideology that threads through everything. Anti-Muslim immigration bans, reproductive rights and Planned Parenthood, LGBT policy, school curricula and vouchers, environment, and the likely relocation of the US Embassy to Jerusalem. It’s all one single seamless garment. Don’t let this one story crowd out the previous ones, but put it in context.

    We need a single allied resistance, that’s certain now.

    You cannot buy the Revolution. You cannot make the Revolution. You can only be the Revolution. It is in your spirit or, it is nowhere.

    The Revolution is in the individual spirit, or it is nowhere. It is for all, or it is nothing. If it is seen as having any end, it will never truly begin. We can’t stop here. We must go on. We must take the risks.

            Silly person. You fill your van with detainees. Once the van is full, you flip a switch directing the exhaust to the van box interior. This way you only need a long deep trench to “hold” the detainees.

    A poster on another thread has provided this link to an article that suggests the Trump regime is planning a coup:

    https://medium.com/@yonatanzunger/trial-balloon-for-a-coup-e024990891d5#.rhvkkbs50

    And I’ve found this (which makes a reference to the article above):

    It might be comforting to believe that Trump accidentally stumbled into a constitutional crisis his first week in office, but it’s far more likely that this is a test. And if we as a country fail it, our system of checks and balances takes one enormous step closer to collapsing.

    Trump is a buffoon. We know this. He’s incapable of leading the country in any capacity whatsoever. But he’s not in charge. White nationalist Steve Bannon is and like most white nationalists, Bannon has no use for the Constitution or the rule of law. To this end, Bannon almost certainly engineered the Muslim ban knowing the courts would immediately move to strike it down. CNN’s interpretation is that Trump’s administration is comprised of political amateurs who didn’t necessarily understand the confusion the illegal executive order would generate but that it a very generous take on what happened last week. A piece by Yonatan Zunger has a much dimmer view of this potential coup but it lists a cabal of bad actors that include Trump and Reince Preibus being active players, which seems unlikely. As I wrote about last week, Donald Trump is Steve Bannon’s puppet so that’s who we have to look to for answers.

    The fact that so many Homeland Security and border patrol officials are ignoring the various court orders blocking the ban is troubling. But the fact that Trump’s (Bannon’s) administration is not telling them to stand down is dangerous and incredibly telling. This means that Trump (Bannon) is deliberately testing the waters to see how much of the law enforcement apparatus under his control will obey illegal executive decrees. By muddying the waters and sowing the maximum amount of confusion by not making the parameters of the executive order clear, Trump (Bannon) will find out how law enforcement will act under duress. If they’re willing to “just follow orders,” then we enter the death spiral of our constitutional republic with the end result being the very dictatorship the Constitution explicitly exists to prevent.

    Another fact that points to Trump (Bannon) looking to do away with the power of the judiciary is this (Since this writing, the link has been restored but it’s still unclear why it was missing in the first place): Donald Trump Removes the Judicial Branch From the “Our Government” Section of the White House Website [you can see the graphic if you go to the article].

    It might seem like a minor detail but it speaks volumes about Trump’s (Bannon’s) contempt for the checks and balances that are supposed to keep him from being a king. By design, judges are not subject to the whims of the Executive Branch and cannot be removed from the bench easily. That leaves Trump (Bannon) no choice but to ignore them. If law enforcement follows his lead, the courts will be rendered powerless.

    The Republicans controlling Congress can put a stop to this power grab but aside from Lindsay Graham, John McCain and a scant few others, congressional Republicans are either supporting Trump or oddly indifferent. The basic calculus seems to be that it’s better to see if Trump wins so they can curry favor from their new overlord. A lot of people have been comparing the GOP’s cowardice to the failure of Germany’s Parliament to rein in Hitler because they’re following the same pattern for the same reason: They think they can either control or get rid of Trump (Bannon) any time they want.

    But if Trump (Bannon) is able to command blind obedience from law enforcement, who will stop him when he disregards the court’s orders? Who will stop him when he ignores Congress? Who will stop him at all?

    It’s been just ten days since Trump (Bannon) took power and we’re already on the brink of disaster. Even if this ploy doesn’t work out, Trump (Bannon) will continue to set up confrontations with the judiciary, making it easier each time for law enforcement to ignore court orders and normalizing the power grab in the public’s mind.

    The question now become: How much erosion of our democracy and civil rights will the so-called “patriots” of the right accept in the name of “safety” and white supremacy? Unfortunately, history’s already given us that answer.

    http://thedailybanter.com/2017/01/dontrump-steve-bannon-coup/

    It concerns me GREATLY that the fact the Trump regime is disobeying court orders concerning the ban is not a MAJOR story dominating the news.

    • worstcultever

      Just read that piece and comments myself – damn

    • RoFaWh

      I’ve read that French law forbids the owner of a newspaper from being involved in editorial decisions, so editors to free to edit. Sounds like a very good idea.

      I cannot even begin to say how disturbing this is.

      I don’t see any way out.

      • billbear1961

        The way out is to INSIST loud and clear that the Rule of LAW be RESPECTED.

        The press, Congress and protesters must SPEAK UP!!

        It is VITAL!!

        • canoebum

          Presumably, the Federal judges who issued those stays, and whose orders are being ignored, can issue summonses to the offending officers, by which I mean the agency heads, and have them hauled into court by the US Marshals to explain themselves. If the explanations are lacking in merit (almost a given), those judges can put the agency heads in the can for a few weeks, or even the entire 120 days of the ban. That is the sort of signal that needs to be sent.

          • billbear1961

            Yes, it IS!

            I hope they ACT and SOON!!

            But if the marshals refuse to act or the other agents who are defying the courts’ orders put up resistance, we are in a MAJOR crisis.

          • Martin

            We are already in a major crisis. These courts are not doing anything to enforce their ruling because the judges are afraid, and probably rightly so. The America we knew is over, and it may never be back. I hate to be so darn pessimistic, but I cannot ignore the facts. I am so deeply depressed at this point that I am considering ALL of my options — none of which are good.

      • billbear1961

        I wish, Sam, that they would talk constantly about the fact that the Trump regime is NOT obeying federal court orders which stay some aspects of his ban.

        There are detainees who are STILL not being allowed to consult with lawyers, despite the courts ORDERING this to be permitted.

        Too many customs/immigration agents are just IGNORING the courts, placing loyalty to Trump ABOVE their FIRST duty to the Constitution.

        The Rule of Law is being ignored by the Executive branch!!

        Why this isn’t and hasn’t been THE dominant news story since the stays were issued and then IGNORED–by so many–is BEYOND me!!
