The president has whatever power he thinks he can get away with in their "illegal" executive-orders.
Most of these are not only illegal, but unconstitutional.
I recall one executive order that was written and signed after Congress passed a law re-iterating that the government could not open mail without a court order.
The executive order that was written and signed after the law was signed by the President said the equivelent of "That new law you wrote, restricting my peons from opening mail without a court order? Yeah, it only applies if I feel like letting it."
The executive branch does not "get to interpret" the law, period!
That is the sole right of the Judicial branch.
The Legislative branch writes the laws. The Judicial branch interprets the laws. The Executive branch executes the people abiding by the laws in ways they don't like. Wait, did I say that out loud?
I taught my children, before they even started kindergarten, that if they don't want someone to "tell on them" or "know they did something they shouldn't have", that they have one and only one option.
Can you guess what that option is?
Yup, nailed it in one. "Don't do what you don't want others to know you did." or to put it another way "Don't do something you know is WRONG."
If my children, at age 5 can understand this, then why in the hell can't the idiots in the government understand this?
Assange did nothing, abso-fucking-lutely nothing wrong in any way, shape or form.
It's the fucking retards (aka fucktards) in the alphabet organizations and the mentally-challenged-unable-to-reach-fucktard-status currently running the country, that should have known to start with that what they were doing, and continue to do, was wrong, illegal, unconstitutional, against the Geneva convention, crimes against humanity.
>The DOJ also just finished wrapping up an investigation of the Chicago PD, but statements made by Sessions and President Trump indicate the White House and DOJ are more interested in solving Chicago's crime problem, rather than its police problem.
You do NOT want the destruction of those entities. You want the destruction of the strings tying the communications industries to the joints of the FCC/FTC chairman puppets currently being played by the @$$#@75 in charge of those industry giants.
Once we see the puppets on stage fall to the ground like the spineless marionettes that they are, the audience might, just 'might' wake up and demand their money back from this worst play ever.
Make America great again? Oust Trump and his phony cronies before they do any more damage.
"Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai and his counterpart at the Federal Trade Commission today argued that strict privacy rules for ISPs aren't necessary in part because the broadband market is more competitive than the search engine market."
10+ search engines Choices for ISPs in most areas of the country, '1', at most '2'.
Can we round the FTC and FCC leaders up and prosecute them for making false statements to the government? Not to mention, to the rest of the citizens of this nation?
We do not appreciate the mockery you are making of the Constitution.
Cease and desist before enough Veterans and active military have to do what they swore to do when they joined.
Upholding the Constitution is the #1 priority of all branches of the military, against enemies foreign **AND DOMESTIC**.
Following orders within the chain of command comes a far second after this.
When I joined, this was the oath I swore.
I, My Name, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed ...
I may no longer be physically able to come kick your ass out of office, but you can't say that about the rest of the people still doing active military service.
How many military personnel are currently deployed? When they come back, will they have to come and kick your ass out of the office that you are making a mockery of?
How about you actually start following and defending the Constitution that *YOU* swore to uphold.
Get rid of your cronies that you appointed to office, and put people in that actually care about the Constitution first, the human beings that make up our citizens and visitors second and last.
Corporations, which aren't *PEOPLE* (when has a company been drafted, or been sent to prison), can fend for themselves.
The constituents which voted you into office need your protection, not your abuse.
On January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government.
So see, Trump really is for government of the people, by the people and for the people.
The only issue is that he, Trump, aka PotUS, only considers corporations as people. To Trump, human beings are just bags of mostly water waiting to be stepped upon by the psychophantic imbeciles that he's selected to head up the federal agencies he's allowed to muck with.
I hate to say this, but I think Russian hackers have taken over the PeotUS. During a recent upgrade of his hairpiece, Russian hackers implanted dermal transducers and a hot-air charger to keep them powered up.
Now, all they have to do is sit back, relax inside their siberian prison and type "I think it, you say it."
It's the only thing that makes sense out of the Cheetoh faced shit-gibbon's decisions to put the people in charge of the government entities that he has.
Seriously, for each assignment, it's as if he and/or his staff have gone out of their way to find *the* *absolute* *worst* *candidate* *possbile* and then selected them.
In my opinion, each and every one of his decisions have been akin to putting a convicted child molester in charge of the local daycare.
Just make *ALL* cell towers, power-poles, cable-lines, fiber-lines, data-hubs common carrier. Mandate free access to all of these to any company. xx% of all revenue be paid to every company using those resources goes into the maintenance and upgrade pool. Companies would only be able to charge exactly what they advertise, if they advertise $35.00 a month, then that is all they can charge, period. That 35 would include all fees, charges, taxes, etc... Also, all services provided can only be advertised at the "minimum" data-rate provided, not the lies currently used with their "speeds of *up to* 1Gbit/S". Usage caps would be forbidden. Companies accused of violating any of those terms will have their licenses to provide service revoked on the first offense.
Since they, stupidly enough, went after the wrong person twice.
I'd say the guy shouldn't have to work a day for the rest of his life after he gets the hundreds of millions from suing the City and gets 100% of the involved police officers' retirement funds as well depleting the City's umbrella coverage.
Since the AG's job is to prosecute people based on the law, I believe the level of ignorance allowed is much closer to 0% than the 99% allowed for ignorant cops.
At least I'd hope so.
There's an idea, perhaps we should require mandatory competency, morality and ethics testing prior to someone taking those positions, with annual refresh training to keep them current.
If I were to submit to my knee-jerk reaction, I might say something like...
"I also think a zero tolerance policy should be implemented for anyone in law enforcement, prosecution and adjudication roles, with a 1 strike and you're out, or in, as it should include mandatory life imprisonment @ Gitmo."
Obviously Yahoo is *NOT* a law abiding company as they broke the 4th Ammendment in such a way that constitutes treason to the American people.
How does it constitute treason? It failed to protect the American people in their "right to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and *effects*, against unreasonable searches and seizures" This constitutes grave damage to the people of this nation by Yahoo's betrayal of trust, which is one of the definitions for Treason.
Now, I don't know about you, but I damned sure count my e-mails as "personal effects", and am damned sure that I have not, and will not allow anyone from the lowliest beggar to the PoTUS or SCoTUS to redefine them in any way.
