The Watering Hole, 4/19/17: Trump Creates New Cabinet Position

Trump signed a new executive order over the Easter weekend creating a new Cabinet-level position: Department of Linguistics.

The Department of Linguistics department will be tasked with removing foreign words from the English language. Over the past centuries too many foreign words have illegally immigrated into the English language, destroying its purity and greatness as the greatest of all languages. Removing these foreign words is a high priority for the Trump Administration as it continues its quest to Make America Great Again.

Insiders report Sarah Palin is highly favored to become the new Secretary of Linguistics.

Meanwhile, back at the ….

While the Republican plan to destroy healthcare for millions of Americans went down in flames, a little noticed resolution passed through Congress and is now awaiting signature on Trump’s desk.

The resolution simply rebrands ObamaCare as TrumpCare.

Polls show TrumpCare is favored over ObamaCare by a wide margin of people who voted for Trump in the last election.

 

 

Hump Day 3/8/17

Wow. Hooda thunk… all those folks who came here in the bottom of slave ships were nothing but illegal immigrants looking for a better life for themselves and their children, grandchildren, great grandchildren or God knows who of their prodigy that would finally be free of their illegal immigrant status.

Even now Bannon Trump is working on an executive order that declares all offspring of illegal immigrants to be illegal immigrants themselves. Preliminary drafts suggest Trump plans to get around the XIV Amendment by simply refusing to enforce any laws that grant such people citizenship status.

It is rumored that the executive order won’t be signed until after Trump hires 10,000 more ICE officers, as massive deportations will be pre-planned to coincide with the signing. Once the targeted individuals are out of the country, Trump plans on denying them reentry.

Unexpected opposition is expected to come from mob bosses, whose Mafioso roots trace back to Italians who immigrated “Without Papers“.

The Watering Hole, Hump Day, 3/1/17

Eighteen months ago, the No DaPL protests took the matter before the International Court of Justice in The Hague. The Court convenes in the Peace Palace, and this author was fortunate enough to have visited it several years ago.

In a stunning ruling, the ICJ determined that not only was the United States of America violating the rights of the indigenous people, but that western Europeans have engaged in illegal wars of aggression  since the beginning of the 1500s.

Claims to north American by right of discovery are invalid, the Court explained, because there existed at the time an indigenous population whose rights to the land are superior to that of their illegal conquerors. Indeed, the only portion of the north American continent lawfully occupied by other than the original indigenous tribes is what is now called Manhattan. The ICJ found title to that land lawfully passed to to the Dutch in exchange for 60 guilders of trade goods.

The ICJ also found that claims to north America by right of conquest to be equally invalid, as a country that commits an illegal war of aggression cannot thereby obtain title to the land.

The international court’s ruling, though important, is largely symbolic. It lacks any means to enforce its ruling.

Sunday tRump Roast – 02/26/2017

Here’s a nice tidbit the mainstream media isn’t broadcasting, as yet: Marla Maples’ divorce from Donald Trump was never finalized. That’s right. Marla and The Donald are still legally married. It appears that after all the papers were signed, new squabbles developed over Trump’s reluctance to pay alimony and divisions of property, so Marla never filed for a final decree.

What’s this mean? It means Trump’s marriage to Melania is not legally valid. This, in turn, means that she cannot be granted citizenship based on her marriage to The Donald. If so, she returns to green-card status, and, under Trump’s new immigration rules, subject to deportation.

Is Trump looking for wife #4?
