Governor Cuomo Announces to the World He is a Nitwit!

http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/06/07/donald-trump-illegal-immigration-andrew-cuomo-deport-me-new-york

New York City Governor Andrew Cuomo said recently (not sure of date of speech, article published 07 June 2017) President Trump should start with him in the process of deporting immigrants. In doing so, Governor Cuomo demonstrates his inability to speak intelligently. Several factual gaffes appear in this statement:

1. The President of the United States cannot deport anyone. Only an immigration judge, in an immigration court and proceedings has the authority to deport anyone. Nor does the President of the United States have authority to direct such a court to deport any specific individual.

2. Governor Cuomo was born in New York City to parents presumably citizens of the United States. He was not born in any of the ‘exception’ areas – the Italian Consulate, for instance – and is therefore a citizen of the United States. A citizen of the United States – by law – cannot be deported. Only non-citizens can be deported.

3. The current President of the United States has made no statements about a blanket deportation of ‘immigrants’. He has spoken of deportation of those persons, not U. S. citizens, in the territory of the United States AND engaged in the planning or commission of illegal, felonious acts; or those in the U. S. without legal authority (commonly called ‘illegal aliens’). One notes if Governor Cuomo has either planned or committed illegal felonious acts, and is under law liable as an ‘abettor’ or participant in such acts, he may be arrested, tried and convicted and sentenced to penal servitude or other punishment as prescribed by law and directed by competent court. But Governor Cuomo cannot be deported for such action.

All of the above should be known to Governor Cuomo. I say again, ‘…should be aware…’. One notes Governor Cuomo is an attorney and has practiced law at least in the State of New York. Attorneys in general should be aware of these provisions of Federal Law.

From all this, two alternatives present themselves. One is Governor Cuomo is woefully ignorant of the law. Which strikes me as a bit unlikely. The other alternative is Governor Cuomo is so intent in his hatred for President Trump, et al, the Governor has decided to utter mis-truths in order to cast aspersions on the President.

I am always doubtful of those who cannot find a legitimate argument for criticism and instead utter mis-truths. Nor does this generate any confidence or sympathy for Governor Cuomo or his purpose.

More Progressive? What Does That Mean?

Secretary of State (former) Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernard “Bernie” Sanders are now engaged in arguing who is ‘more progressive’; part of running for the Democrat Party candidate for President.

Really? More progressive?

Progressive in the political meaning as observed by the Democrat Party means “spending other people’s money”. All the agenda items on the progressive platform involves ‘giving’ – what a great word – this or that to those who don’t have it now. Wealth in the form of ‘income equity’, housing, the ability to live freely and move freely. All this wealth without having to work for it.

However, as noted by many thinkers, a government cannot give anything to anyone not taken from someone else first. The government does not ‘produce’ wealth; government only takes wealth away from someone who does produce it.

Consequently, a government – a ‘progressive’ government – gives away ‘wealth’ to supporters at the expense of working people; the actual producers.

So when the two Democrat ‘progressives’ are arguing which is going to raise taxes most and take away more wealth from working people than the other. How delightful.

Of course, one who doesn’t work, doesn’t want to work and quite possibly isn’t capable of doing anything productive is all in favor of this form of ‘redistribution’. This plan is far more profitable than robbing liquor stores or gas stations. This plan is far more profitable than looting. This plan is safer than robbing banks. And it doesn’t result in jail or prison time. Just the thing for Democrat voters.

Of course, ‘progressives’ couch the wealth redistribution plans as “Christian”. After all, Jesus said to take care of the poor. What they miss about what Jesus said is Jesus was speaking to individual Christians. Jesus told His followers they individually were to take an interest in poor people and be individually concerned about them. Jesus never implied or said for a ‘society’ to forcibly take money (tax) from workers and use that money against their will to unquestionably pay non-workers infinitely. In fact, the governmental plan removes the element of concern from the individual about the needy person.

Details, details, details.

So the argument between Secretary Clinton and Senator Sanders is who is more willing to forcibly take money from anyone who works and give it to anyone who votes for them. Very attractive for those who vote for a living. Not so great for those who work for a living.

Oh, there are other considerations as well. Progressive also means taxpayer paid abortions on demand. Progressive means avoidance of personal responsibility in terms of service to others or national security. Progressive means denial of the value of the United States as a leader in freedom. Progressive means denial of religious freedom (except currently for Islamics). Progressive means denial of freedom to speak out against a repressive government.

Perfect. If one is an insect.

First Amendment Works Both Ways

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/06/08/obama-says-supreme-court-should-never-have-taken-up-health-law-case-in-blunt/

The Appointed One has spoken. The current President has said the Supreme Court should never have taken up the case in review.

Some will defend the President by saying, “He can speak his mind if he chooses. The First Amendment gives all citizens that right.”

Yes, that is correct. One could also say, “I am God, there is no other.” Several have, and the President seems to be getting closer all the time. However, I and other American citizens can believe differently. Further, we – those who can think rationally – can decide a person saying such a thing (seriously) is no one with whom we want to have contact in any way.

Presidents have before been accused of ‘megalomania’. However, never before with such public evidence.

Senator Harry Reid Thinks All Republican Presidential Candidates are Losers!

https://www.yahoo.com/politics/harry-reid-assesses-2016-republican-field-i-116469477761.html

My only comment is, “Really?”

A lifetime Democrat Continuum drone and wild-eyed liberal doesn’t like Republicans? Senator Reid doesn’t approve of conservatives – either social, fiscal or moral? How shocking!

For some reason, that’s news to Yahoo.

From the “You’ve Got to Be Kidding!” file

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/06/23/clinton-im-not-truly-well-off/

Hillary Rodham Clinton, former (annoying)  First Lady, former (mediocre but Liberal) Senator from New York State, former (wretched) Secretary of State – announced she and her husband President William J. “Bill” Clinton were ‘broke’ when they left the White House.  Which may explain why they attempted to steal all the dinner ware and many other items not permanently attached when they left.

Even for a leftist with a by-nature tenuous hold on reality, Madam Secretary shows an amazing ability to deceive herself about her financial status AND the stupidity of the listening public.

What does it mean to a woman with more money than most of us will ever earn in a lifetime to be ‘broke’?  Does that mean she cannot buy a Senate seat without others to pitch in with the purchase price?  How does she keep a straight face saying this sort of stuff?  Stephen Wright keeps a straight face during his monologues, but everyone involved knows he’s presenting ‘humor’, not absolute fact.  The late Buster Keaton was known for his deadpan delivery and acting, but I understand he sometimes laughed on set and had to shoot the same sequence more than once.  But not Madam Secretary.

Seriously, folks; can you believe this?  She charges – according to the article – “… a six figure speaking fee …”  (a minimum of $ 100,000.00 just to be clear) for her speaking engagements.  (In comparison, I get about $36,000 a year from my retirement/Social Insecurity payments.  I collect guns, support a son in university and I’m mostly comfortable.  What the blazes does she do with her money?)  But she’s not “… truly well off …” she says.  AND she claims her income comes from ‘hard work’.  Frankly, I could foul up foreign policy and then lie about it in front of credulous graduates for much less.  What’s so ‘hard work’ about being a protected, pampered, ignorant loser?

Oh.  She wants to be President of the United States.  Does it warm the cockles of your heart knowing she would be a President who identifies with us ‘lesser’ folk?
