If at first you don’t succeed, fail, fail again.

I gotta start buying stock in Johnson & Johnson, the company that makes band aids. Because, I swear, if I had a lousy buck for every time Emperor Numbnuts I shot himself in the foot, I wouldn’t need my disability benefits, I could buy Jeffrey Epstein’s private island at auction once the government seizes it upon his conviction. You know, for a guy who brands himself as the worlds ultimate winner, Trump sure seems to spend a lot of time standing in front of microphones and cameras, explaining exactly why his fuck ups aren’t really his fault. And again, this appearance was totally unnecessary. When the Supreme Court slapped Trump’s crank down on that question, the DOJ’s response was basically, “Oh well, some you win, some you lose, and some just get rained out.” But The Pampers President had to run his pout flag up the pole, and so again he has to try to explain how this defeat is actually a stunning victory. Trump’s bold and decisive alternate plan of action to deal with the citizenship issue is two pronged, and almost totally incoherent. The first prong is to blame the Democrats, as well as those damn activist librul courts for all of his legal ills. The second prong was to issue an executive order compelling all federal government agencies and departments to immediately turn over any census related material that they routinely collect to the Commerce Department upon request. In other words, to do exactly what they’re doing right now. DHS and Social Security were mentioned, both of which the census bureau regularly mines for data, with no friction. I believe the operative phrase I’m looking for here is a circle jerk. But, being the silver tongued orator that he is, El Pendejo Presidente couldn’t resist letting his Freudian slip show. He spoke earnestly about the importance of having an accurate tabulation of both citizens, as well as non citizen populations. But he couldn’t leave well enough alone, he just had to go and piss in the punch bowl by breaking the second category down into non citizens and illegal immigrants! The obvious conclusion being that Trump wants to use the census to identify and target undocumented immigrants for suture punitive action. But the actual motive is far darker and more sinister, and it’s also pure GOP. Speaking after Trump, and taking one for the team for his failure to be able to hijack his way into getting the citizenship question on the census, Attorney General Bill “Tubby the Ewok” Barr let the goodies slip out of the Christmas stocking. Barr spoke of the possibility of the government using only the “citizenship” population numbers in apportioning congressional seats to states, as well as individual states using solely citizenship numbers to guide them in their redistricting maps in 2021. Both moves would be blatantly unconstitutional, since the constitution calls for the “population” to be counted every 10 years, not just US citizens. This is desperation ball being played by the GOP. As population migration changes the demographics of traditional GOP strongholds in places like the New South, where new businesses are bringing in an influx of minorities, including aliens in the country legally on work visas, it is becoming harder for the GOP to successfully gerrymander. In trying to use the “citizenship” […]
