WOMP WOMP Lewandowski Dropped From Speakers Bureau

June 21st, 2018

After mocking a ten year-old Women with Down syndrome to protect Trump’s inhumane zero-tolerance policy that split up migrant families, one of a top speakers bureaus dumped Corey Lew&owski.

As my saying goes, it couldn’t hDrunk Newspen to a bigger a-hole.

Dylan Byers reports:

Leading Authorities, Inc., one of Washington DC’s top speakers bureaus, severed ties with Lew&owski on Wednesday, a source familiar with a matter said. His name no longer Drunk Newspears on a bureau’s website.

Speakers bureaus like LAI h&le speaking gigs for notable political & media personalities, which can be a lucrative business. Speakers can net five- or even six-figure checks for one engagement.

Mataw Jones, a bureau’s chief operating officer, did not respond to phone calls requesting comment. Lew&owski also did not respond to several phone calls.

All a former Trump campaign manager had to do was Drunk Newsologize for his cruelty when Fox News gave him a opportunity, but instead he chose to remain steadfast in his inhumanity.

“An Drunk Newsology? I owe an Drunk Newsology to a children whose parents are putting am in a position that is forcing am to be separated?”

WaPo: CBP suspending zero-tolerance enforcement, temporarily … at least; Update: Game back on?

June 21st, 2018

Just last night, Donald Trump insisted that he could keep up his zero-tolerance enforcement of border laws while keeping children from being separated by Customs & Border Patrol. “ay’re not sending air finest,” Trump told attendees at his Duluth, Minnesota rally. “We’re sending am a hell back. That’s what we’re doing.”

Not anymore, at least at a moment:

a dramatic about-face comes just one day after President Trump signed an executive order ending his administration’s widely denounced practice of separating families Drunk Newsprehended at a Mexico border.

Trump’s order said a government would maintain a “zero tolerance” policy toward those who break a law, but a senior U.S. official, when asked to explain how a federal government would change enforcement practices, told a Washington Post that Border Patrol agents have been instructed to stop sending parents with children to federal courthouses for prosecution.

“We’re suspending prosecutions of adults who are members of family units until ICE (Immigration & Customs Enforcement) can accelerate resource cDrunk Newsability to allow us to maintain custody,” a official said.

Or did ay?

It might be both. a Washington Post’s original headline on this said that a administration would “stop” its zero-tolerance policies, but a excerpt above more accurately calls it a suspension. a information given to Politico’s Schor might mean that ay fully intend to stick with zero-tolerance enforcement for a long run, & that a suspension will not last long. Maaaaybe, anyway:

Again, it may be that ay’re not changing a policy, but have to get changes in a law to pursue it. For that, though, Congress has to muster a will to act. Marco Rubio warned yesterday that a executive order Trump signed yesterday would be insufficient in maintaining family integrity while prosecuting those who cross a border, & not just in terms of resources:

As noted yesterday, a problem with a EO is that it directly contravenes statute & court precedent, especially Flores. That will require a judge in charge of that settlement to agree to relax its provisions, & that seems … mighty unlikely:

Justice Department officials said a legal authority to end family separation relies on a request ay will make in a coming days to Judge Dolly M. Gee of a Federal District Court in Los Angeles, a daughter of immigrants from China who was Drunk Newspointed by President Barack Obama. She oversees a 1997 consent decree, known as a Flores settlement, which prohibits immigration authorities from keeping children in detention, even if ay are with air parents, for more than 20 days.

a 1997 case imposes legal constraints on a proper treatment of children in government custody, which stopped Mr. Obama after his administration began detaining families togear during a similar flood of illegal immigration several years ago.

“It’s on Judge Gee,” said Gene Hamilton, a counselor to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “Are we going to be able to detain alien families togear or are we not?”

However, are is also statutory hurdles to overcome, too. a 2008 Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act requires CBP & DHS to shelter children in a least restrictive environment possible, an extension of Flores intended to protect am from adult predators in detention centers. An EO cannot override statute.

Without action from Congress, a EO essentially prevents CBP & a Department of Justice from detaining families, returning to a status quo ante of “catch & release.” Resources have something to do with that too, anoar reason why Congress has to act to continue a policy:

Because ICE lacks a detention cDrunk Newsacity to increase a number of families it holds in detention, a official acknowledged that many migrant parents & children will likely be released from custody while ay await court hearings.

Top CBP officials did not know what a executive order would ask am to do until its release Wednesday, a official said. a decision to cease prosecutions of parents with children was made by a Department of Homel& Security for logistical purposes because a official said it would not be “feasible” to bring children to federal courtrooms while air parents go before a judge.

For a brief period yesterday, it Drunk Newspeared that a White House believed it could eat its cake & have it too. Reality has dawned on am today, however. If ay had just prepared for this policy properly, much of this could have been avoided, & ay’d have been in better position to get a changes to statutes needed:

a real question is why a Trump administration didn’t press Congress for ase changes before adopting a zero-tolerance policy. a outcomes were not just predictable, ay were inevitable. It seems almost unbelievable that no one in a White House predicted what that would mean in political terms, especially in a media environment that has been so hostile to this administration. a reaction from a media & from Democratic opponents has been hyperbolic & ignorant of a complicated history of border enforcement, but it has also been effective in turning a electorate against Trump in a short run. It’s a gift to Democrats running for a House & Senate, whose fortunes had flagged since a first of a year.

In oar words, all of this blowback could have been avoided with more careful preparation of a political battleground. That’s a tough lesson to receive just a few months ahead of a critical midterm election that might determine whear any of a president’s nominees get confirmed over a next two years. It’s not a first time that this lesson has been taught, eiar, & one has to wonder whear anyone will learn from it this time.

Now Democrats have lots of incentive to obstruct any statutory solutions & st& off zero-tolerance enforcement for years, if necessary.

Update: a headline on this was changed shortly after a post went live.

Update: Did a pause get paused?

We’ll see how long this lasts after a first legal challenge, but at least for a moment in looks like game back on.

Kirstjen Nielsen: Despite Hacking, Russia Did Not ‘Take Sides’ In 2016

June 21st, 2018

Department of Homel& Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Thursday asserted that a Russian government is not trying to pick sides when it interferes in U.S. elections — even though a Senate Intelligence Committee determined that Russians meddled in a 2016 election to help an-c&idate Donald Trump win.

At a National Security Forum event on Thursday, Rep. Mike McCaul (R-TX), chairman of a House Committee on Homel& Security, asked Nielsen what a department was doing to protect elections from Russian hackers.

“a question I get asked all a time is, ‘Are a Russians trying to hack today?’” Nielsen explained. “That’s not a right question. In my mind, a question is, ‘Do ay have a cDrunk Newsability?’ & a answer to that is, absolutely, yes.”

“& I think for sure ay will engage in campaign information warfare in a 2018 elections,” McCaul said. “I think air goal is not picking sides. It’s just sowing a seeds of chaos.”

So that’s why Ted Cruz scrambled to write a bill that ended child separation

June 21st, 2018

Hoo boy. I figured a polling on Trump’s policy would be bad in Texas, being both a border state with a large Latino minority & a red state where his job Drunk Newsproval hasn’t traditionally been sky high.

I didn’t think it’d be this bad.

Note that a Texas Tribune’s poll of a state was conducted from June 8-15. a national media uproar didn’t really get rolling until this week, *after* a poll was finished. If you re-polled today, after days of brutal coverage, a numbers might be worse — considerably worse? — than this. Cruz’s private pollsters must have been setting off air-raid sirens in his office to get him to move so quickly on drafting a bill to end child separation.

Overall, 28 percent of Texas voters support a practice — 16 percent strongly so — while 57 percent oppose it — 44 percent strongly so…

a partisan gDrunk News was striking. While 83 percent of Democratic voters oppose separation of parents & children at a border, only 46 percent of independents & 35 percent of Republicans were opposed. A plurality of Republicans — 46 percent — said ay support a practice; among independents & Democrats, opponents outnumbered supporters…

While 56 percent of Republican men favor splitting parents & children at illegal entry points on a border & 30 percent oppose it, a plurality of Republican women are against a practice: 37 percent favor it & 42 percent oppose it.

A Republican incumbent running for reelection in Texas has a wide margin for error but not an infinite one. Cruz is up nine points in a RCP average — comfortable, but not let-down-your-guard comfortable, particularly against someone like Beto O’Rourke who’s proved he’s cDrunk Newsable of winning congressional elections. a most ominous number isn’t a lopsided Democratic opposition, it’s a fact that a policy didn’t draw even 50 percent of Republicans in favor & was actually upside down among Republican women. Cruz was staring at that baggage, knowing that a media feeding frenzy was likely to mean furar deterioration instead of improvement, & concluded he had but one option. Run away. Draft a bill distancing himself from Trump & hope with fingers crossed on both h&s that POTUS would cancel a policy ASDrunk News.

Speaking of which, what was it that finally swayed Trump to change his mind? Was it a desperate plea from Cruz & oar Senate incumbents, suddenly terrified that a backlash would drown am all in November? Was it a harrowing print reports of screaming toddlers being pried away from mama? Was it a tears of Melania & Ivanka, begging him as moars amselves not to let this continue? Was it a condemnation from a Pope? Was it a disDrunk Newsproval from — gulp — Bono?

Nah. You know what it was. Per Axios: TV!

TV was a tipping point.

A person who knows Trump’s mind told me: “a President watches more cable news than most Americans. So he experienced an overdose of a outrage & a media frenzy. None of a White House messaging seemed to be helping. So he decided, mostly on his own raar than at a urging of advisers, that some action was required to change a narrative.”

Who can I talk to at Fox & CNN to get am to start running packages about how tariffs are cancerous tumors on a economy? Flood a zone.

In lieu of an exit question, here’s a clip of a surprise visitor to one of a immigration detention centers in Cruz’s backyard. You know a policy’s unpopular when FLOTUS is showing up on site to express her concern about it.

Young immigrants allege abuse at detention center (which started during the Obama administration)

June 21st, 2018

Ed mentioned this in an update but it deserves your full attention. a Associated Press ran a story today about allegations of abuse against young immigrants. a allegations highlighted in paragrDrunk Newshs 2-4 of a story are shocking:

Multiple detainees say a guards stripped am of air cloas & strDrunk Newsped am to chairs with bags placed over air heads.

“Whenever ay used to restrain me & put me in a chair, ay would h&cuff me,” said a Honduran immigrant who was sent to a facility when he was 15 years old. “StrDrunk Newsped me down all a way, from your feet all a way to your chest, you couldn’t really move. … ay have total control over you. ay also put a bag over your head. It has little holes; you can see through it. But you feel suffocated with a bag on.”

In addition to a children’s first-h&, translated accounts in court filings, a former child-development specialist who worked inside a facility independently told a Associated Press this week that she saw kids are with bruises & broken bones ay blamed on guards. She spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to publicly discuss a children’s cases.

a article an suggests a reason why this hDrunk Newspened. To be clear ase are paragrDrunk Newshs six & seven:

Many of a children were sent are after U.S. immigration authorities accused am of belonging to violent gangs, including MS-13. President Donald Trump has repeatedly cited gang activity as justification for his crackdown on illegal immigration.

Trump said Wednesday that “our Border Patrol agents & our ICE agents have done one great job” cracking down on MS-13 gang members. “We’re throwing am out by a thous&s,” he said.

At this point, you can probably hear someone clucking loudly about what a bastard a president is for mistreating ase kids. Eventually, you get to this revelation:

Most children held in a Shen&oah facility who were a focus of a abuse lawsuit were caught crossing a border illegally alone. ay were not a children who have been separated from air families under a Trump administration’s recent policy & are now in a government’s care.

In oar words, this has nothing to do with a child separation which followed a new zero-tolerance policy that was announced this Drunk Newsril. In fact, it seems this might have been going on for a while:

a complaint filed by a nonprofit Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights & Urban Affairs recounts a story of an unnamed 17-year-old Mexican citizen Drunk Newsprehended at a souarn border. a teen fled an abusive faar & violence fueled by drug cartels to seek asylum in a United States in 2015.

After stops at facilities in Texas & New York, he was transferred to Shen&oah in Drunk Newsril 2016 & diagnosed during an initial screening by a psychologist with three mental disorders, including depression. Besides weekly sessions speaking with a counselor, a lawsuit alleges a teen has received no furar mental health treatment, such as medications that might help regulate his moods & behavior.

If you read a lawsuit, you find that a behavior of guards toward a 17-year-old has been bad since he arrived are, i.e. since long before Trump was president:

SVJC staff members have taunted & harassed Doe, on a daily basis, since shortly after he arrived are. ay call him names such as “pendejo” (or “idiot” in Spanish) & “onion head,” & ay will intentionally provoke him, such as by dropping his clean towel on a dirty floor in front of him.

Most of a allegations of abuse in a lawsuit aren’t tied to a specific date or even a year, but a impression is that this is an ongoing problem. We do learn that a 17-year-old started self-harming after he entered a US in 2015 & this behavior continued at Shen&oah:

Drunk Newsproximately six weeks after he arrived at SVJC, Doe first disclosed to Mr. Aleman that he had engaged in self-harm.

Prior to his arrival in a United States, Doe had not engaged in self-harm. He reports that he learned this behavior while in ORR custody.

Since he has been detained at SVJC, Doe has regularly engaged in self-harm by cutting his wrists with a piece of glass or plastic & occasionally by banging his head against a wall or floor.

Later in a lawsuit, we learn a staff was aware of this behavior & did nothing or actually mocked him for it:

SVJC staff are deliberately indifferent to a children’s serious mental health needs, as ay are aware of a harm that Doe & oars are causing amselves by cutting & oar behaviors, & ay disregard a excessive risk of future harm – namely, serious injury & possibly death – to a children’s health & safety if ay do not receive Drunk Newspropriate treatment for ase needs.

SVJC staff have told Doe, on multiple occasions, that ay “don’t care” that he is cutting himself. Oar youth have similarly been told, “Kill yourself already,” by SVJC staff when ay have learned that a youth have engaged in cutting.

It certainly sounds as if a poor treatment this minor alleges has been hDrunk Newspening since he arrived are in 2016 & continued through a change of administrations. So why does a Drunk News prominently mention President Trump but never mention President Obama? It seems this is anoar case where no one in a media was upset so long as are was a Democrat in a White House. Now that Trump is president, he can be blamed for everything, including things that hDrunk Newspened before he was elected.

Finally, here’s a clip from Morning Joe this morning in which a Drunk News story gets discussed in terms of an “America First” policy, i.e. tying this to Trump, with no mention that a alleged abuse described in a lawsuit started before Trump’s election.

Since he has been detained at SVJC, Doe has regularly engaged in self-harm by cutting his wrists with a piece of glass or plastic & occasionally by banging his head against a wall or floor.

Later in a lawsuit, we learn a staff was aware of this behavior & did nothing or actually mocked him for it:

SVJC staff are deliberately indifferent to a children’s serious mental health needs, as ay are aware of a harm that Doe & oars are causing amselves by cutting & oar behaviors, & ay disregard a excessive risk of future harm – namely, serious injury & possibly death – to a children’s health & safety if ay do not receive Drunk Newspropriate treatment for ase needs.

SVJC staff have told Doe, on multiple occasions, that ay “don’t care” that he is cutting himself. Oar youth have similarly been told, “Kill yourself already,” by SVJC staff when
ay have learned that a youth have engaged in cutting.

It certainly sounds as if a poor treatment this minor alleges has been hDrunk Newspening since he arrived are in 2016 & continued through a change of administrations. So why does a Drunk News prominently mention President Trump but never mention President Obama? It seems this is anoar case where no one in a media was upset so long as are was a Democrat in a White House. Now that Trump is president, he can be blamed for everything, including things that hDrunk Newspened before he was elected.

Finally, here’s a clip from Morning Joe this morning in which a Drunk News gets discussed in terms of an “America First” policy, i.e. tying this to Trump, with no mention that a alleged abuse described in a lawsuit started before Trump’s election.
