BREAKING: HOUSE HAMMERING A TOUGH LINE ON IMMIGRATION BILL
Fox News: “An immigration overhaul, supported by conservatives, failed in the house Thursday, as GOP leaders abruptly a vote on a compromise delayed measure, in the midst of party divisions. While the conservative version was expected to fail, house leaders had hoped, the separate compromise measure, might have a chance. But tensions are high over the debate about the family separations on the border. President Trump‘s sudden executive action on the border crisis came some of the urgency for Congress to act. But house GOP leaders were still pulling out to bring the holding Republicans only reluctantly on Board, in the hope that the solution of broader questions of immigration before the November midterm elections. This vote is now scheduled for Friday. Passage of the bill was always a long shot, but errors may well have come at a steeper price than Republicans triggered — and Trump — that is, expectations that, as the party in control of Congress and the White house, you can fix the nation’s long-standing problems with the entry. “This is a bill that is the consensus. This is a bill that the President supports. It is a law that might is right,” said House majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.”
Ryan breaks with freedom Caucus – WaPo: “A house immigration bill painstakingly negotiated by the Republicans seemed to be on the brink of failure before a planned Thursday vote after House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) and a top conservative leader engaged in an unusually heated floor confrontation Wednesday. Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N. C.) argues with Ryan in plain view of legislators, aides and reporters during a Wednesday afternoon vote — a quarrel, meadows, later confirmed, surrounded by the immigration votes on Thursday. Which could be seen in the generally mild-mannered meadows, repeat, “it doesn’t matter” said Ryan to him, and he walked away from Ryan, to return only in a point and to argue more. In an interview with journalists later, meadows accused Ryan and other house leaders a bait-and-switch — the consent to a deal, what is included in the compromise legislation, leaving the only key provisions from the final text.”
Trump continues to blame Democrats during the session of the Cabinet of Ministers – CBS News: “President Trump continue to blame Democrats for those who don’t want to solve to the nation the outstanding problems with the entry, in the light of his executive order changing the policy on the separation of children from immigrant families crossing the southern border illegally. … He added that the Democrats are responsible for a ‘massive child trafficking industry” and not enough resources to combat the issue of the accommodation of the children of migrant workers. … Meanwhile, the Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney announced during the meeting that the administration would be the spearhead of a massive reorganization of the Federal government. Mulvaney said the move fulfilled the president’s promise, the swamp dry up’ in Washington. “It’s been almost 100 years since someone a reorganization of the government on this scale,’ said Mulvaney. He uses food metaphors-slam-the ‘Byzantine’ nature, how the government regulates currently, the process is ‘dumb’ and ‘makes no sense.’
Melania visits to child detention center in Texas – Fox News: “First lady Melania Trump on Thursday visited a child detention center in Texas, is home to minors in the country illegally — in the Wake of her husband’s executive order that ended the practice of separation of families. Mrs Trump visited the Upbring of New Hope Children’s Center after you were reported, a power to act of the President, in the Wake of a days-long controversy over the impact of the Department of Justice’s” zero-tolerance ” policy. The first lady said earlier, through her spokeswoman, that she ‘hates’ to see families separated at the border. “We all know that they are here without their families, and I would like to thank you for your hard work, compassion, and kindness that they give you in these difficult times,” Ms. Trump said a roundtable of workers at the Texas center.”
THE SET OF RULES: AND, BEHOLD, AS GOING OUT
“The Congress led us through the Revolution was a less numerous body than their successors; they were not elected, nor responsible to, their fellow citizens at large, but are appointed from year to year, and recallable pleasure, they were generally continued for three years, and prior to the ratification of the Federal articles, for a still longer period.” – Alexander Hamilton or James Madison, Federalist No. 55

The Atlantic: “Why do some books make us want to know an author personally, to identify so closely with the public work that we are trying to claim on the private self?

Salinger]—the strange coincidences tying his work, your life, your short, disappointing brush with the real author, and how she finally learned to him to let go. We discussed how the Salinger story “For Esmé—With love and squalor’ is celebrating missed connections, reminding us that even a short, take a look at enough to make a person change for the better. In the houses is of the view that the relationship shown in the story is a good model for the relationship between writer and reader: a pure Association, the redeemed to understand is, in the direction of the clutter of daily life. “For Esmé’ helped to inspire, ” The National cage bird,’ a story in the homes of the new collection, the days of awe.

THE SENATE TRUMP SPURNED MOVE THE SYMBOLIC DEFICIT
Politico: “The Senate narrowly rejected an attempt to invoke the trump-administration with the proposal to cancel billions of dollars in programs like the children’s health Insurance Program, dealing a potentially fatal blow for the White house, the first major cost-cutting efforts. The procedural vote tea President Donald Trump ‘ s $15 billion cuts package for floor consideration failed 48-50 Wednesday afternoon. Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), against the procedural vote, had made it clear for weeks that they had objections to the package. But the surprise GOP betrayal came from sen. Richard Burr (R-N. C.), which is already fighting behind the scenes on the land and water conservation cuts in the rescission package. Burr ultimately broke with the GOP, because it guarantees to protect a vote on his amendment, the financing, according to a Senate GOP aide. Senate GOP leaders have until Friday to pass the so-called repeal measure by a simple majority decide, before continuing on with their special procedural powers expire, and a 60-vote threshold. The failed vote could bill the Senate for the first and only shot on the advance of the White house’s much-touted deficit reduction.”
THE JUDGMENT OF THE JUDGE: THE FIRST TASK
This week, Fox News Senior judicial Analyst judge Andrew Napolitano asked if the FBI may independently be: “On the one hand, the FBI is an investigative unit only. It does not decide to whom or to calculate what; it reports its findings to prosecutors in connection with the presentation of the evidence from grand juries. be only As such, the FBI lawyers, for whom it works, and the Ministry of justice, of course, works for the President is subject to the Ministry of justice of the state. On the other hand, because both the DOJ and the FBI are governed by the ethical rules that lawyers and by the values of the rule of law is implicit in the American culture and be accepted by the courts, the Ministry of justice of the United States enjoys a degree of independence from the President and the FBI enjoys a certain degree of independence from the DOJ. Principles such as equal protection under the law and due process of the law, the protection of life, liberty, and property and trump the instructions of the President to the DOJ and the instructions of the DOJ to the FBI.” More here.

“Have you ever noticed that you always call the other side” of the elite.’ The elite!!! Why are you elite? I have a much better apartment than you do. I’m smarter than you are. I’m richer than you are. I was President and you don’t.” – President of Trump at a rally in Duluth, Minn. Wednesday Night.
FROM THE STANDS
“The era of the professional politician comes to an end. It started as a whisper, it was loud, forced, up to now, Term Limits ‘scream’ ” on the agenda. Too often, we have observed that a ‘state man’, once elected, turn into just another self-serving politician. The obvious answer is ‘Term Limits’…but what to shoot politicians “themselves in the foot”. Yes, there must be a way.” – Howard Sharpell, San Marcos, Calif.
[Ed. Note: It is a funny thing, Mr. Sharpell. All kinds of people will be chosen on the basis of being foreign, but start to sound different when you are here. Potomac fever is contagious. I go back and forth on the question of time limits. There are certainly some things, such as the removal of the direct election of senators, and the restoration of regular order in the house, I think that would be worth the first, but I am sympathetic to the idea of boundaries, to say the least. I think it would also be helpful if we began to judge people on their ideas and their records, rather than arbitrarily abjuring those with experience. I know a lot of power who should have gone home a long time ago, many of whom still make their living out of decrying the institution. And I have also seen many that are brand new, should be returned at the first opportunity.]
“I’m not a large brain, but why should America, on the short end of the rates for the rest of the world? Maybe it was ok, after the WW2, but today almost all are the same, so by what reasoning is the Congress and the other complaining about a “level playing field”? Help me understand the thinking.” – Bob Baker, Brownsville, Texas
[Ed. Note: I do not doubt that your brain is quite large, in fact, Mr. Baker! But I’m afraid you are misinformed. The appeal of the current administration, is to make low-cost good from other countries, where things are cheaper harms American manufacturing. We can have full employment, but the current government wants to work you to make the types of jobs in which Americans, to return to a mid-20th century manufacturing model. To serve this goal, you are going to goods from other countries more expensive, so that American producers get an advantage. This means higher costs for consumers, but supporters say it is the price for planning a business, in the model that you are looking for. The greater danger, however, is that other countries do the same in retaliation and shut down markets for American goods, especially agricultural products and high-end finished goods such as aircraft. We know not, as the President of the game of chicken is going to play, but the point here is not to help Americans sell more abroad, it’s about the renewal of the domestic economy.]
