    This is no ” Biggie “……..Should be no problem fixing Manhattan and Miami when the surf is lapping at the doorstep… Heck with the extra large Brain the answers are right at hand…..

    See, there’s your problem, “officials.” The US has no officials. Kissinger was an official. Even when people didn’t agree with him, they listened to him. He had “gravitas.” Not a single person in US government today, on either side of the aisle, has any real gravitas. We have no “officials.” Except for Elaine Chao, even our cabinet members are mostly interim because Trump can’t get appointments through the Senate (Chao is married to McConnell so she sailed through, though not having been born in the US, she can’t be President.) Some parts of the government have “bosses,” but we have no officials, except maybe Kudlow, lol?

    Oh Lordy, the USA is a shell of itself, the shingles are being blown off by a light breeze and the siding is unpainted and out of square. Just read the history of the Roman Empire and you will see us. The barbarians are at the border and we don’t want to see them, we just want our fix of “cheap $$$” and to be told how great we are. Debt. That’s our game and we are good at it, we have taught the world well. Now the whole stinking place is ready to blow-up in the biggest debt bomb ever known.

    • Since the day he was “elected” I believed trump would play out the narrative of being USA’s Niro burning down the first American republic and laughing while he watches. Is there any doubt that there will be a constitutional convention in the next 10 years with vast changes ushering in the second republic? I just don’t see the current constitution remaining intact after a foreign agent was placed at the head of the government in collaboration with the party controlling the Legislature. Seems like a glaring hole in the process of self governance.

    When Boris Johnson stands on the tarmac and tells you to tone things down, you know you’ve crossed the line into the Bizarro world…

  5. Well, let’s see. The ocean’s are so full of plastic waste we need to learn how to cook it and eat it to survive. The oxygen level in the atmosphere is dropping and the oxygen generator is on fire. (That can’t be good). The Ebola crisis won’t go away and just seems to get worse every time it rears it’s head. Forest fires and hurricanes are increasing in their fury. The oceans are rising. And chaos is the only thing which seems to be something to bet on with confidence. If the Trump is re-elected you know it’s all going to get better?? right?? Where the hell are the Republicans??

      The GOP are like the schoolyard ‘wimps’ cowering and beseeching ‘The Donald’ bully not to attack them. I don’t know how they can look themselves in the mirror. They must have no self-esteem left.

    trump law library:

    The Supreme Court majority pointed out that the President’s power must stem from an action of Congress or the Constitution.[44] In this case, there was no expressed or implied statutory authority for the President to commit such an action, so the government relied on implied constitutional power.[45] The majority rejected this argument by finding that the Take Care Clause “refutes the idea that he is to be a lawmaker” and that it is solely the duty of Congress to deal with policy making.[46] The Court affirmed the district court’s decision with the effect of invalidating President Truman’s steel seizure order.[47]

    “[e]xtraordinary conditions do not create or enlarge constitutional powers nor justify the exercise of unauthorized powers.”[243] The Framers expressly rejected the idea that the Executive should have exclusive emergency powers based on their experience.[244] It is essential that during times of national emergency, our three-branch-system functions properly.

    For the national emergency in this circumstance to be upheld, the analysis would turn on whether the President has expressed authority over emergencies from the Constitution.[245] Because there are no enumerated emergency powers conferred upon the Executive Branch, the national emergency could not be upheld.[246] The President could not rely on his implied emergency powers to uphold the national emergency which has been determined by the third tier of Justice Jackson’s framework.[247] Thus, presidential attempts to circumvent the proposed amendment through the use of a national emergency would fail in court.
