Will anyone on the left "ever" believe that these excuses go too far?

An organizer of the protest told the L.A. Times that not only should Vidal-Jaime not have been detained, but she also claimed federal authorities arrested the woman because her daughter is an activist against immigration enforcement. “We think it is retaliation against her mother for her daughter’s activism,” Marcela Hernandez said. 
In a statement to the L.A. Times, Claudia Rueda said authorities should let her mother out of federal custody. “Despite being told she would not be detained as long she cooperated, my mother was apprehended during an illegally conducted raid at my apartment,” Rueda said.
So the argument is that this raid was targeted because the woman's daughter is an activist against immigration enforcement. The argument continues with the allegation that the raid was "illegal".  At this point, everyone on the left is becoming enraged by the horrible behavior by authorities looking to break up innocent families.

Is there another side?
Vidal-Jaime has been living in the U.S. since 2001 and her husband, Hugo Rueda, was arrested for drug possession by officials in the raid, where Rueda’s car allegedly had 33 pounds of cocaine in it, and the couple’s apartment had $600,000 cash inside, along with an ounce of crystal methamphetamine.
So now the question becomes... were the authorities really raiding the house because these people were related to an immigration activist. Or were they raiding the house because they had suspicion that there was 33 pounds of Cocaine, massive amounts of Cash, and some Meth thrown in for good measure?

Is 33 pounds of Cocaine and 28 grams of  Meth part of the whole "non-violent" forms of criminal activity that our law enforcement is supposedly obligated to look the other way on, because otherwise these otherwise good law abiding illegals might be deported?

Hard to imagine that this giant drug bust was an accidental find, during an otherwise illegal raid. But perhaps my imagination isn't quite as good as the liberals out there defending people like Hugo and Teresa against being raided over these sorts of otherwise innocent "non-violent" criminal behavior.

The regressive hillbot lunatics need to keep doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.

Works for me.

How long before some on the right, will they realize that they made a serious mistake and continue that error in judgment? President Trump had an interview on Serious Xm.

Trump on the Civil War:

"I mean had Andrew Jackson been a little bit later, you wouldn't have had the Civil War. He was a very tough person, but he had a big heart. He was really angry that he saw what was happening with regards to the Civil War, he said "There is no reason for this"

The seventh President, Andrew Jackson, a slave owner, died 16 years before the Civil War.

Commonsense said...

Jackson and Jefferson were both slave owners and yet Democrats honor them with a fundraising dinner every year.

Hypocrisy ----- Bedrock ---- Liberalism

Seriously folks. I won't deny that I opposed Donald Trump for President. I have joked that the President is mentally ill. I followed quite a bit of the coverage of the days of interviews. By the end of the day I was concerned..

Seriously: http://www.politico.com/story/2017/05/01/trump-civil-war-banks-korea-237859

President Donald Trump questioned why the Civil War— which erupted 150 years ago over slavery — needed to happen. He said he would be "honored" to meet with Kim Jong-Un, the violent North Korean dictator who is developing nuclear missiles and oppresses his people, under the "right circumstances."

The president floated, and backed away from, a tax on gasoline. Trump said he was "looking at" breaking up the big banks, sending the stock market sliding. He seemed to praise Philippines strongman President Rodrigo Duterte for his high approval ratings. He promised changes to the Republican health care bill, though he has seemed unsure what was in the legislation, even as his advisers whipped votes for it.

"It seems to be among the most bizarre recent 24 hours in American presidential history," said Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian. "It was all just surreal disarray and a confused mental state from the president."

This is his performance in an interview.

where i come from we call that psychological projection, dougie.

the bulk of the "surreal disarray and confused mental state" i'm witnessing began at the javits center on election night, continues in newsrooms around the country, and hasn't let up since. you and your comrades in the media are in the death grip of TDS. and rather than seeking help for it, you seem to double down every other day.

but hey, don't despair...

none other than michael moore is going to take to the stage on broadway to help you assuage your self-inflicted wounds.

should be fun. just don't try to cut in front of mikey in the buffet line.

"Candidate Obama's second bit of strategic heresy was even more controversial: his declaration that he would negotiate "without preconditions" with the leaders of outlaw nations like North Korea, Iran and Cuba. Obama argued that the Bush Administration's unwillingness to engage adversaries had made the U.S. less secure. "I will meet not just with our friends, but with our enemies because I remember what Kennedy said, that we should never negotiate out of fear but we should never fear to negotiate,"

Words from the christian right.....those who never cast the first stone or admit it. Idiots


Many Christian leaders responded to Donald Trump’s bragging about sexual assault with a similar line of defense. Jerry Falwell Jr., president of Liberty University, the country’s largest Christian college, said that “we’re all sinners” and that Mr. Trump had apologized. (In fact, Mr. Trump has said that he doesn’t ask God for forgiveness and didn’t need to ask his wife for it either.) Mr. Falwell later claimed to have proof that the women accusing Mr. Trump of sexual harassment were lying.

From todays NYT's

Yep.....another bunch of excuses righties make that pass as rationale for supporting a tyrant.

The Fix Analysis
Trump’s totally bizarre claim about avoiding the Civil War

During an interview with the Washington Examiner's Salena Zito on May 1, President Trump suggested the Civil War wouldn't have happened had Andrew Jackson been president. "Why could that one not have been worked out?" Trump asked. (Sirius XM, Mainstream Meets the Beltway)

Why couldn't we all just get along?
That's what President Trump wants to know about the Civil War. In an interview with the Washington Examiner's Salena Zito, our president-historian posits that the war might not have happened if only Andrew Jackson had still been around. The whole thing apparently could have been avoided if only we had a bona fide negotiator — someone more up to the task than Low Energy Abe Lincoln. HA HA HA HA LOW ENERGY

Here's the exchange, via Sirius XM's P.O.T.U.S.:
TRUMP: [Jackson] was a swashbuckler. But when his wife died, did you know he visited her grave every day? I visited her grave actually, because I was in Tennessee.
ZITO: Oh, that's right. You were in Tennessee.
TRUMP: And it was amazing. The people of Tennessee are amazing people. They love Andrew Jackson. They love Andrew Jackson in Tennessee.
ZITO: Yeah, he's a fascinating...
TRUMP: I mean, had Andrew Jackson been a little later, you wouldn't have had the Civil War. He was a very tough person, but he had a big heart. And he was really angry that -- he saw what was happening with regard to the Civil War. He said, “There's no reason for this.” People don't realize, you know, the Civil War — if you think about it, why? People don't ask that question, but why was there the Civil War? Why could that one not have been worked out? WHAT A DUNCE

One glaring issue here: Jackson wasn't really angry about what was happening with the Civil War, because he died more than a decade (1845) before it started (1861). (Jackson in 1832 and 1833 oversaw the Nullification Crisis, in which Jackson used the threat of military force to make South Carolina pay tariffs. The situation was eventually resolved but is viewed as a precursor to the Civil War.)

james said...

But that small matter aside, this actually sounds pretty familiar for Trump. Just last week, in an interview with Reuters, Trump suggested there was really no reason for the Israelis and the Palestinians to have been fighting for all these decades. WHAT A DUNCE
“I want to see peace with Israel and the Palestinians,” Trump said. “There is no reason there's not peace between Israel and the Palestinians — none whatsoever. WHAT A DUNCE So we're looking at that, and we're also looking at the potential of going to Saudi Arabia.”
No reason whatsoever! You know, besides the whole claim-to-the-very-same-holy-land thing. Minor details. WHAT A DUNCE
What's remarkable about this language is that it sounds like a lefty pacifist, and Trump is at the very same time talking about the prospect of a “major, major conflict” with North Korea. Apparently the Civil War and the long-standing Middle East conflict have just been lacking in diplomacy; North Korea may be beyond that.
Historians with more academic experience than Trump have indeed asked this question about the Civil War often. It's a hugely difficult one to answer, a century-and-a-half later. And to say it with the certainty Trump does — “you wouldn't have had the Civil War” with Andrew Jackson — is just foolhardy A FOOLHARDY DUNCE.

It's also a question that unpacks all kinds of issues with slavery. It's generally assumed that a deal to avert the Civil War would have included concessions to Southern states having to do with their right to own slaves — the central dispute of the Civil War. Is Trump saying he would have been okay with a more partial or gradual phasing out of slavery? Was there really a deal to be cut on that front? Or does he think Jackson, a slave owner himself, would have convinced the South to abandon slavery immediately, somehow? WHAT A DUNCE


(For a taste of Jackson's cruel attitude toward slaves, see here from the Retropolis team.)
It's also a highly questionable statement in the context of Trump's own foreign policy. If the United States does have to get involved in a foreign conflict, Trump is opening himself up to suggestions that such conflicts could have been avoided if only he were a stronger negotiator. If Middle East peace isn't attained by the time he leaves office, it will apparently be because he and adviser Jared Kushner simply weren't Andrew Jackson.
But mostly it's just a completely bizarre claim that, once again, suggests a president who speaks loudly and confidently about things he simply doesn't understand. WHAT A DUNCE.

WE HAVE A MALE VERSION OF SARAH PALIN IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

Obviously he hasn't heard of the nullification crisis of 1832.

Nor apparently, has anyone at the Washington Post.
