Ambush: to cut to the chase: Trump declares publicly he'll sign a bipartisan DACA bill. On Thursday morning



Durbin and Graham call to say they have such a deal. Trump seems amenable. A meeting is set for noon. Then the Senators arrive there is a phalanx of hardliners - including Senators Cotton and Perdue, amnesiac DHS Secretary Nielsen, Chief of Staff Kelly, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy,, and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.)



Trump is fired up, blasting the deal. Egged on by the pack Trump is soon talking shit, dreaming of a Viking migration, etc.



How does the fool back down now? - gwc

John McMahon was Chief Trial Attorney at the Newark office of the New Jersey Office of the Public Defender. P.D.s have a wholly undeserved bad name. I tried cases part-time for the P.D. in Newark for four years. Lawyers like McMahon, his father, Dale Jones, Cathy Waldor, Jerry Soffer, Ollis Douglas, Michael Marucci, Verna Leath, and Denise Cobham were among the best lawyers I met in my thirty year career practicing law in the county.
The Public Defender's office participated in every capital case in new Jersey from restoration in 1982 to repeal in 2017. 225 trials, 60 death sentences, no executions.
All this work by dedicated public servants who are not lionized on TV, but who see the humanity in their clients and uphold the highest standards of our profession. - gwc

The President must declare before witnesses:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
The Constitution of the United States bars discrimination on the basis of race, national origin, or gender. DJT neither understands nor honors that oath. He has not faithfully executed the Office of the President. His failures on many counts are impeachable offenses. - gwc

The VSG says he is going to take a “strong look” at our libel laws which are, he says, a “sham”.

A few power point slides should do the trick.

A defamatory statement is one that is false and "injurious to the reputation of another" or exposes another person to "hatred, contempt or ridicule" or subjects another person to "a loss of the good will and confidence" in which he or she is held by others.

Restatement (Second) of Torts § 559 (1977)


§ 580B DEFAMATION OF PRIVATE PERSON

One who publishes a false and defamatory communication concerning a private person, or concerning a public official or public figure in relation to a purely private matter not affecting his conduct, fitness or role in his public capacity, is subject to liability, if, but only if, he
(a) knows that the statement is false and that it defames the other,
(b) acts in reckless disregard of these matters, or
(c) acts negligently in failing to ascertain them.

§ 580A DEFAMATION OF PUBLIC OFFICIAL OR PUBLIC FIGURE

One who publishes a false and defamatory communication concerning a public official or public figure in regard to his conduct, fitness or role in that capacity is subject to liability, if, but only if, he
(a) knows that the statement is false and that it defames the other person, or
(b) acts in reckless disregard of these matters.
