TRUMP - YOU ARE DISQUALIFIED AND FIRED

What is it about Republicans and the Constitution that makes them like oil and water.  We have already had four candidates who have disqualified themselves for not understanding either the Judiciary clause or the 1st Amendment.  Now The Donald has announced that the 14th Amendment can not withstand a court challenge.  A constitutional amendment is unconstitutional and it "won't hold up in court."

In particular Trump has said that those children born of undocumented aliens in the United States are not citizens.  Let's look at this logically, which, of course, Trump does not.

First of all the amendment is simple: ". . . all persons born or naturalized in the United States are citizens of the United States. . ."  What part of this sentence is not clear and unequivocal?

Second, if Trump is right, then a vast majority of our "citizenry", in one form or another, may not be citizens, and must voluntarily deport themselves to the their ancestors' country of origin, including Trump.  Almost no one would be eligible to be President or Vice-President.

I will not repeat the President's oath of office.  I will just say: Trump you are DISQUALIFIED AND FIRED.  You are an idiot, an imbecile and a moron.  If anyone should leave our country it is you, and let US take it back from bigots and xenophobes like you.

This is unbelievable! The Republican field is succesfully out stupiding each other to the top of the polls. No doubt Rubio will claim that the entire Constitution is unconstitutional to one up Trump. I wonder what the moron who claims you are in the bag for the Democrats will post.

What's really feeding this Trump craze? Obama. Talk about "disqualified." Once again the pendulum is in motion.

Talk about low hanging fruit. Lots of thought needed for this diatribe? Any chance that this guy is on the ballot in November of 2016? C'mon man!

I wish 7:54 was right and there was no chance. But I heard the same type of comments about Rick Scott, and our state elected him twice.

TRUMP / PALIN 2016

Has anyone browsed the circuit court campaign finance reports recently? I just did.

Marcia Del Ray's report is . . . odd.

She has $71,000 in contributions and nearly every contribution (with two exceptions) is for $1,000.

That's strange enough. But then look at the occupations/sources listed. Not one single attorney. Not one.

Instead, for some reason, people in the hotel business are evidently fascinated by her (at least 20 contributions of $1,000).

In a town with real reporters, this is the sort of thing that might be a story, no?

Captain? You going to get on this, since no one else will.

(And no, I'm not the opponent. I don't really know Judge Bloch OR Ms. Del Ray. I just like browsing these contributor reports and, in 30 years, I haven't seen anything like this.)

Judge Millian on 7th floor has started a "new policy in Miami" where he will no longer be accepting any below guidelines pleas or min man waivers. He thinks he is in Broward and wonders why he has a high caseload. He has also begun denying all motions for defense continuances.

There is no possibility that is true about Milian. I've been there a lot this month.

TRUMP / DEEZ NUTS 2016

I love how the Professor quotes a short bit of the 14th Amendment in order to call Trump dumb, and then FUCKS UP his own quote, completely omitting the phrase on which Trump hangs his argument, and which should appear in the middle of the Professor's quote.

If youre going to be the resident Defender of the Constitution, Mr. Professor, quote it correctly.

If youre going to be smarter than Trump, then first understand his argument.

If youre going to be a dumb-ass partisan hack, blindly attacking anyone without a [D] next to his name, frothing at the mouth about how stupid everyone is... well then, continue on as before.

Like I said in a previous comment, the Professor is the classic 105 IQ -- smugly convinced he's smarter than anyone who disagrees.

Ive not seen Millian mention anything about no min man waivers. But I have seen both his bailiff and Milt Hirsch's bailiff (illegally) forbid children from entering court. We get it, if a baby should cry it could disrupt the business of court and to ask the mother to take the crying baby outside would cause an annoying interruption.

But in a free society we accept the risk of potentially annoying interruptions.

MiLLAN or Milian???? from what I hear...it's MILLAN that is doing some crazy stuff--- the one that never went to trial and was always late!. Also, ask MILLAN's bailiff who he was exchanging saliva with at his judge's investiture....

Horrible post. Trump is entertaining. He is the best in the republican field at this point. But who is worse trump or sanders who thinks that a 90 percent tax on people who make a Mellon a year is ok? That is more offensive. Or is Clinton much better?? Get a grip bra

Many judges are using their bailiffs to illegally restrict kids in court. The fact the baby sitter, kids options , exists does not mean kids can't be in court. It is a PUBLIC courtroom. Until the kid disrupts court, you can not have a policy to exclude them

It violates the very concept of Government in the Sunshine, what are the judges afraid the kids will see, justice in action ?

Not sure about the below guidelines pleas, but I do know that attorneys in Milian's courtroom are barred from looking at their cell phones even when waiting in line to call up a case. His Baliff will come up to you and tell you to put away your phone. Crazy

9:51 -

I did not know "entertaining" was a qualification for the Presidency. And being the "best in the (R)epublican field" does not say much for the "(R)epublican field".

By the way, name one person ever elected to the Presidency that did not hold at least one elective office, major military rank, or cabinet or diplomatic post prior to being elected President. There is a reason for that. Anyone elected President should have some knowledge of how government works and the restraints of the Constitution. The Presidency is not an entry level job.

Does anyone really believe that Trump really wants to work that hard? How many truly believe that Trump wants to be on duty 24/7/52? How many think Trump wants to answer those calls at 5 o'clock each morning; "Good Morning Mr. President, it is time to to get up." ? Or those calls at 2 am or 3 am: "I'm sorry Mr. President, but we have a situation and we need you in the Situation Room, immediately."? You can not say: "Don't bother me now, I will handle it later.", or "Don't bother me, and by the way you are fired."

The citizenry may be "entertained", but this is real world, not a reality show. You can not yell "cut" and start over to make it right. If you screw up, there are consequences for millions, if not billions of people.

Trump is a shill for the Democrats.

Nobody was ever allowed to wake up Ronald Reagan.

Seth-

They could have. He would not have remembered.
