    Re: The policy and politics of Trumpism

    Wrong thread - but I can’t find the one on the midterms.
    I thought this was important because someone made a comment about not having enough money in a campaign without help from big banks (or pacs)-

    "So there's theories that there's infinite amounts of universe, and there's alternate universe, so it's very important for me to get Hoover out because in an alternate universe, I am him."
    Thanks for your reply and comments, Charmin. Do you think he could be "Crazy like a Fox"?

    Good excuse as any to bring Jack Warden into the thread....one of my fav. actors!

    I like Diddy’s tweet (and I’m not a fan) in regards to KW’s circus act -
    “Tell that NEGRO to call me”.

    The Five-Year-Old Who Was Detained at the Border and Persuaded to Sign Away Her Rights

    Noehmi remained in a cold holding cell, clutching Helen. Soon, she recalled, a plainclothes official arrived and informed her that she and Helen would be separated. “No!” Noehmi cried. “The girl is under my care! Please!”

    Noehmi said that the official told her, “Don’t make things too difficult,” and pulled Helen from her arms. “The girl will stay here,” he said, “and you’ll be deported.” Helen cried as he escorted her from the room and out of sight. Noehmi remembers the authorities explaining that Helen’s mother would be able to retrieve her, soon, from wherever they were taking her...

    On Helen’s form, which was filled out with assistance from officials, there is a checked box next to a line that says, “I withdraw my previous request for a Flores bond hearing.” Beneath that line, the five-year-old signed her name in wobbly letters...

    “Judge, this case doesn’t stop here,” Delgado said. “What about the little child lost in the system?”

    The judge looked confused. “What do you mean?” he asked.

    “Well, where is Helen, the five-year-old?”

    The judge, Delgado recalled, seemed startled. Both he and the government prosecutor had no idea that Helen existed, let alone where she was being held. “I could give you a couple of phone numbers to call?” the prosecutor offered...

    Noehmi fears that some of the damage inflicted on her family can never be mended. “Helen was always a very calm girl,” she told me, sitting in lupe’s office on a recent Friday night. “Now I have to be very patient with her—she’s very attention-seeking.” Lately, at bedtime, Helen hides in the closet and refuses to go to sleep, afraid that her family might leave her in the night. Sometimes Noehmi wants to hide, too; she buried her round face in her hands, weeping, when she recounted one of Helen’s declarations upon her return: “You left me behind.” But Noehmi decided to share their story with me because she worries that other families are still living out a similar search. “I fear there are still other children suffering,” she said. “Other families are feeling this anguish, this struggle, and they need us to act.”

    Wouldn't a good lawyer tear that document to shreds in court? We don't find minors responsible enough to do anything, including things they're capable of. A 5 year old has no legal ability to sign anything but homework.

    when our courts and a big chunk of our population don't see immigrants as human but as vermin infesting our country ...

    in part of the article, there are some lawyers that helped them get re-united, but it was tons of hoops to jump through and there are likely tons of these situations that are falling through the cracks.

    This may, or may not, be Trump’s Waterloo. He loves him some Saudi’s.
