Donald Trump’s Ignorant Administration – ‘Priebus: Trump Considering Amending or Abolishing 1st Amendment’

Donald Trump – The Ugly American

To begin, kudos to John Marshall for being on of the few outlets to pick up on this.

Insane idea? Yes. Under the current Congress, it could possibly pass the House. Not the Senate. And with 30+ State houses under Conservative leadership, again a possible close to 2/3’s.

But John, this is not just about the ‘free press’.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

There is not a single ‘true’ Christian (see Mike Pence) that doesn’t drool over the prospect of making America a real ‘christian’ Nation.
Yes any dictator would jump for joy over reversing all the First Amendment protections and yes Trump only talks about this thinking “governing is so easy” that he could benefit financially by being able to sue the press over stories he doesn’t like.

But Trump’s ‘legacy’ is already defining itself. All bark and no bite.

He has no concept of how or why Government works.
*Thinks people should lose citizenship if they burn the flag.
*Sitting quietly while the President of China gives him a 10 minute history lesson of China/Korea relations.
*Just ‘take’ a country’s oil.
*Other countries should have nuclear weapons to protect themselves.
*Inviting a murdering dictator (Duterte) to the White House.

The effort is doomed. Just as Trump’s place in history is doomed or of being a possible ‘statesman’.

All doomed.

But Trump didn’t win, didn’t campaign on the ‘Art of the Deal’.
He campaigned and won on ‘squeezing the toothpaste out of the tube’.

Mexicans are murderers and rapists.
Muslims need to be banned.
Hillary needs to be locked up.

Planting the seed of a ‘christian Nation’, legislated speech, press, assembly and petition – the ‘christian Nation’ dream.

Sound hyperbolic? Look at the actual exchange –

KARL: I want to ask you about two things the President has said on related issues. First of all, there was what he said about opening up the libel laws. Tweeting “the failing New York Times has disgraced the media world. Gotten me wrong for two solid years. Change the libel laws?” That would require, as I understand it, a constitutional amendment. Is he really going to pursue that? Is that something he wants to pursue?

PRIEBUS: I think it’s something that we’ve looked at. How that gets executed or whether that goes anywhere is a different story. But when you have articles out there that have no basis or fact and we’re sitting here on 24/7 cable companies writing stories about constant contacts with Russia and all these other matters—

KARL: So you think the President should be able to sue the New York Times for stories he doesn’t like?

PRIEBUS: Here’s what I think. I think that newspapers and news agencies need to be more responsible with how they report the news. I am so tired.

KARL: I don’t think anybody would disagree with that. It’s about whether or not the President should have a right to sue them.

PRIEBUS: And I already answered the question. I said this is something that is being looked at.

  1. Is this a ban on Muslims?

No. Who ever wrote this was very clever to NOT use the words ‘Muslim’ or ‘Islamic Terrorists’. 

This is a Dog Whistle that bans people from 7 Countries who’s  majority population are Muslim BUT – and this is a very big BUTT – HELPS minority religions (read white christians) to be allowed to come to america. 



Section 1. ‘Purpose. The visa-issuance process plays a crucial role in detecting individuals with terrorist ties and stopping them from entering the United States. Perhaps in no instance was that more apparent than the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, when State Department policy prevented consular officers from properly scrutinizing the visa applications of several of the 19 foreign nationals who went on to murder nearly 3,000 Americans’.


‘In addition, the United States should not admit those who engage in acts of bigotry or hatred (including “honor” killings, other forms of violence against women, or the persecution of those who practice religions different from their own) or those who would oppress Americans of any race, gender, or sexual orientation’.



‘and to ensure that adequate standards are established to prevent infiltration by foreign terrorists or criminals, pursuant to section 212(f) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1182(f)’
‘ I hereby proclaim that the immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the United States of aliens from countries referred to in section 217(a)(12) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1187(a)(12), would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and I hereby suspend entry into the United States, as immigrants and nonimmigrants, of such persons for 90 days from the date of this order’


The Secretaries of State and Homeland Security shall, in consultation with the Attorney General, consider rescinding the exercises of authority in section 212 of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1182, relating to the terrorism grounds of inadmissibility

‘it is further directed to make changes, to the extent permitted by law, to prioritize refugee claims made by individuals on the basis of religious-based persecution, provided that the religion of the individual is a minority religion in the individual’s country of nationality’


‘ I hereby proclaim that the entry of nationals of Syria as refugees is detrimental to the interests of the United States and thus suspend any such entry’


‘ I hereby proclaim that the entry of more than 50,000 refugees in fiscal year 2017 would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and thus suspend any such entry’

Trump in hat - Make America White Again

‘Secretaries of State and Homeland Security may jointly determine to admit individuals to the United States as refugees on a case-by-case basis, in their discretion, but only so long as they determine that the admission of such individuals as refugees is in the national interest — including when the person is a religious minority in his country of nationality facing religious persecution’

Trump says he’d allow ‘rich Muslims’ to enter U.S.

“I have a lot of friends that are Muslim and they call me,” Trump told MSNBC during the event. “In most cases, they’re very rich Muslims, OK?”

OK, Donald. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews then asked Trump whether his very rich Muslim friends would be allowed to enter the U.S. during President Trump’s Muslim ban.

“They’ll come in,” Trump said’.

Trump’s Daily Tweet 1-30-17 Trump Doctrine “Just Make Shit Up” – ‘Trump Blames Delta Airlines System Outage on Sunday for Airport Chaos on Saturday’


Deny reality, make up excuses and shame a US Senator – A note to the media….STOP calling this the ‘new normal’.

‘For the record and for the sake of context, some 150 Delta flights were delayed or canceled Sunday due to a system outage’.

‘The chaos, however, erupted Saturday and as a result of Donald Trump’s executive order’.

‘By the time Delta’s problems cropped up, several court rulings had been issued as a result of problems created by Trump’.
