Iran has just issued a New Warning. Rouhani says that they will Enrich Uranium to “any amount we want” if there is no new Nuclear Deal. Be careful with the threats, Iran. They can come back to bite you like nobody has been bitten before!

Hey @realDonaldTrump, there is an email from the @TheJusticeDept yesterday confirming the #census forms are being printed without the citizenship question. Why? Because the Department told the Supreme Court yesterday was the deadline. You want them to lie again?#WednesdayWisdom

The News Reports about the Department of Commerce dropping its quest to put the Citizenship Question on the Census is incorrect or, to state it differently, FAKE! We are absolutely moving forward, as we must, because of the importance of the answer to this question.

Yeah - the Deep State moved fast as to not give the WH time for second thoughts :lol:


:think: Of course one wonders why the WH didn't give out an order what to do if SCOTUS balks at them. But then again dotus was relying on on his placements in the court and that they would be following his implicit marching orders implicitly. :blackeye:

I was gonna post in the Census thread but since I am here...
Trump appears to contradict officials, says census citizenship question not abandoned

:snippity:
“The Census Bureau has started the process of printing the decennial questionnaires without the question. My focus, and that of the bureau and the entire department, is to conduct a complete and accurate census,” Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said Tuesday in a statement.

Joe Biden is a reclamation project. Some things are just not salvageable. China and other countries that ripped us off for years are begging for him. He deserted our military, our law enforcement and our healthcare. Added more debt than all other Presidents combined. Won’t win!

Rephrasing the hilight: how is the nondescript VP of yours, Mike Pence, doing on these issues :?: I guess absent as well as it's not the specific duty of the VP to push the policies. That's your very own duty Dear Donald. You ought to try once the Art Of The Deal with Congress... :blackeye:

So everyone should refuse to deal with people who say negative things about a person? Well, everyone who Trump has denigrated should refuse to deal with him.

FOX: Appeals court rules Trump violated First Amendment by blocking Twitter users:
A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that President Trump is not allowed to block people on Twitter over statements he does not like, affirming a lower court’s decision that declared the president’s account a “public forum.”

In a Tuesday decision, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals noted that because Trump uses Twitter to communicate with the public about his administration, and his account is open to the public for people to comment on his posts, it warrants constitutional free speech protection under the First Amendment.

“We do conclude,” the opinion said, “that the First Amendment does not permit a public official who utilizes a social media account for all manner of official purposes to exclude persons from an otherwise‐open online dialogue because they expressed views with which the official disagrees.”

According to court documents, Trump admitted that he blocked the plaintiffs in the case in 2017 after they posted tweets that “criticized him or his policies.” Once they were blocked, they were no longer able to view Trump’s tweets while logged in, and no longer had access to reply to tweets or view comment threads on Trump’s Twitter page.

The First Amendment prohibits government discrimination against a person’s free speech based on their viewpoint. Trump claimed that his Twitter account is private, so the First Amendment should not apply.

The court said that Trump’s account was indeed private before he became president, but that changed once he took office and used it for official business, as it now displays “all the trappings of an official, state‐run account." The court said that once Trump leaves office, his account will be considered private again.

The Justice Department, meanwhile, stands by Trump's position and indicated an appeal may be forthcoming.

"We are disappointed with the court’s decision and are exploring possible next steps," DOJ spokesperson Kelly Laco said in a statement. "As we argued, President Trump’s decision to block users from his personal twitter account does not violate the First Amendment.”
The 2d Cir.'s decision; written by Parker (GWB nominee), joined by Hall and Droney (Obama nominees).

I've never understood this 'blocking' users on social media. It's one thing if there is ongoing private IM harassment or threat, but he's President of the United States. Many of his tweets are designed to ruffle feathers, as witnessed by the thousands of replies most of his tweets receive with a high percentage of them negative. He asks for this. This is just more bullying behavior we've come to know from the Donald.

Former Democratic New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind

Asked where his lawsuit will be filed and whether other plaintiffs would be involved, Hikind told Fox News in an email, "All that’s being determined at the moment."

"Most likely we will be [the] only plaintiff, but [we will be] citing other examples," Hikind continued. "The claim is [the] same as [the] one against Trump. She uses that account for political/policy commentary, so to shut a citizen off from her statements is a problem -- as well as blocking me from petitioning her or seeking redress."
I guess I have to google this guy. Why is he attacking another democrat?

Oh, I've learned enough.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dov_Hikind
Profiling

Hikind has advocated for the profiling of Muslims of Middle Eastern and South Asian background as a response to terrorism.[10] In 2005 he sponsored a bill to allow police to focus on Middle-Eastern men in subway bag searches.[11][12] At a news conference, holding up photos of Muslim men, he said, "The individuals involved [in terrorism] basically look like this. Why must police think twice before examining people of a particular group?"[13] He has described this as "terrorist profiling".[14] Civil rights groups opposed Hikind's proposal, and the New York City Police Department released a statement against it, saying that "Racial profiling is illegal, of doubtful effectiveness, and against department policy".[15]

Following the attempted bombing of Northwest Airlines Flight 253 in December 2009, Hikind introduced a similar bill that would allow law enforcement agencies to consider race and ethnicity as "one of many factors" in selecting persons for anti-terrorism stops and searches.[11]

IMHO the things differ. Trump is using his account as the official voice of the POTUS and the US government. That's a far cry from a member of the US House using her account to voice her opinion. Her account does not represent the opinion of the Decmocratic Party in the House, nor that of the House in general. Now if Nancy Pelosi uses her https://twitter.com/SpeakerPelosi account, that's official. On the other hand she uses for non-House politics https://twitter.com/teampelosi where she and her team will be kicking ass.

Trump had access to post on the @POTUS account, but for whatever reason, refused to use it. He could have kept things separate.
