Okay, today Donald Trump said that his administration’s enforcement of its deportation policy is “a military operation.”

That’s not good.

So, Spicer had to jump up and talk real loud hoping that people would forget what Trump said.

Didn’t work with squat.

Spicer tried again.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Thursday that President Donald Trump was using the word “military” as an “adjective” to describe deportations carried out under his administration.

“The President was using that as an adjective. It’s happening with precision and in a manner in which it’s being done very, very clearly,” Spicer told reporters at his press briefing.

He claimed Trump meant to describe how deportations are being carried out “in a very streamlined and efficient manner.”

I dunno. From what I’ve seen, the military leaves a path of destruction wherever it goes, which is what they are trained to do.

I think synonyms for using “military” as an adjective would be cluster****.  Or FUBAR.

Look, here’s the deal.  Donald Trump cannot wait to see tanks rolling through San Antonio, Texas.

And the today Jeff Sessions overruled a ruling by Sally Yates that the Feds would not use private prisons.

Why do I think they are aiming toward detention centers?

No one is safe during a CPAP convention.

  1. Patrons,
    Turn with me to 18 U.S. Code § 1385 and say together what we believe….

  2. Call me a child of the Vietnam era, but “precision,” “streamlined,” and “efficient” are not words that I associate with “military.” And if they are, when the military operations are carried out against civilians, then “Gestapo” is the next word that occurs to me.

  3. JAKvirginia says:

    Well, now, let’s cut #45 some slack. The only military he knows is when he watches M*A*S*H reruns.

  4. JAKvirginia says:

    And further, if he meant “efficient” why didn’t he say that? Usually, a translator is needed when a foreign, non-english speaking head of state visits. Not for our own damn president! Sheesh! Four YEARS of this crap? Kill me. Kill me now.

  5. As Olbermann said, they are going to utilize camps, camps with concentration. There will have to be numerous such camps around rather country. They will throw in some of us that help resist as well. I teach at a school that is 90 percent Hispanic. Those kids know the score. They are very sarcastic about it, but you can hear the fear. Most of them trust us and know we care about them, but we are relatively powerless too.

  6. This mass deportation is frightening for all of us who cherish freedom. How much more so for the immigrant community, afraid to leave their homes. There is no excuse for these inhumane actions and it is much too similar to fascist behavior seen prior to World War II, when just being “suspected” of illegal behavior resulted in atrocious government action.
    It has to be stopped. Hopefully the ACLU is on it.

  7. The ACLU caused it in the first place. The money laundering that rode in on Citizens United rests directly on their doorstep. Trump is the end state ACLU candidate.

  8. Laurel Beckett says:

    Merriam Webster definition: military: “of or relating to soldiers, arms, or war “.

    So did The Orange Horror mean soldiers, arms, or war?

    (This got posted in wrong place, and it’s impossible to move comments – just figure I’m tired from waking up at 4 am wishing it were all a bad dream and realizing it’s not. Night after night. Since 9 Nov.)

  9. Lless: WTF????????

  10. So, these guys are the “small government” party?

    Nothing says “small government” like giving the Feds a massively expanded military force with authority to operate in this country.

  11. LynnN, “small government” is a GOP buzzword, like “local control,” which they use to dupe the voters. Those concepts get tossed whenever they’re inconvenient, as when their Big Government refuses you Local Control of your uterus.

  12. Massive military, more nukes than everyone else. I doubt that that President Portokall understands that we already have enough to wipe out the planet. OH yeah – once we start lobbing those babies we are looking at

  13. Sharon, I’m moving to Tierra del Fuego. (Did I get that right?) Anyone coming with Me?

  14. No, not camps, just bus them over the border into Mexico and unload. Doesn’t matter what their actual nationality,

    Spice: “Latino mans mexican don’t it? I’m certain Guatemala is next to the Rio Grande”

  15. JAKvirginia says:

    maryelle: “This mass deportation…” may not happen. Y’see, you can’t take people you don’t want in your country, walk them to the border and say “Git”. Life doesn’t work that way. Cuz THAT country is on the other side and that border is their border, too! And so… Mexico is now saying “Not our problem, amigo! You got ’em now. They’re YOUR problem!” Mexico has stated they will be blocked at the border from entering. Your move, oh Great and Powerful Wizard of Odd Trump! Bwahahaha….

    But… pity the poor people in this power game, no? This whole thing is going to blow up in Trump’s, and thus the US’s, face. This whole country will look like schmucks. Stupid bastard.

  16. JAKvirginia says:

    Debbo: You do know where Tierra del Fuego is don’t you? Extreme southern tip of South America. A hop, skip and jump from Antarctica? Stormy. Coldish, too, I hear.

    Um… wouldn’t, oh say, the Bahamas be better? I’d jump there in a NY minute! Or the northwest corner of the Big Island, Hawaii? In 2008 they voted over 70% for Bamz and in 2012 it was 75% for Bamz. King Kamehameha’s birthplace? Nice views of Maui across the channel? No?

  17. Uh, hello Sean? You do know, don’t you [well, maybe not now that I think on it] that the word “military” is almost ALWAYS an adjective? On rare occasions, it can be used as a noun — as in “The US has the strongest military blah, blah, blah.” But, most often it is used as an adjective. F’rinstance: “I plan to use military operations to round up immigrants. And you, too, if you don’t watch yourself. D. J. tRump.”

  18. P.S.
    He meant it literally.

    Don’t believe me? Hark back with me to the inauguration preparations [was that only 6 weeks ago? How time drags when you’re living in constant terror.] Who was it who had to be dissuaded from including tanks in his parade?

    Yep, Sean’s wrong [again.] He meant it literally.

  19. Yikes! And I thought Reagan mis-spoke a lot but it was actually only the onset of Alzheimers!

  20. Jane & PKM says:

    2018? Actually we can throw fear into the Congress varmints today. Louie Gohmert demonstrated that; but he’s a weak example.

    Whether they admit it or not, the varmints know Donnie is deranged. They are merely hoping to prop him up, until quislings Mitch and Lyin’ Ryan can ram through both their failed and non-existent economic ‘policies.’

    Scare the load out of your varmints. Remind them that Mitch and the little blank page $itch Ryan received $5.9 million and 4.2 million from the healthcare industry they claim to reform.

    Also remind the critters that lovin’ some Mikey Pence could cost them, too. Attacking transgender children for political points is about as low as it goes.

  21. daChipster says:

    Micr: posse comitatus refers specifically to the military, which I’m sure is how these clever bastards in the administration are going to dance around the concept, as long as they are using ICE and CBP (or FBI or ATF etc) to do their dirty work.

    But Dat Guy wants to, real bad!

    The hint was when they floated the idea of federalizing the National Guard for this, only to drop it. Even if they didn’t explicitly federalize the Guard, but some Gubner with an itch gets all excited and calls them out to round people up, that would be posse comitatus.

    I would not put it past them, however, to reclassify illegal immigration as an “invasion” or organized protests as an “insurrection.”

  22. Naw, it wasn’t the ACLU’s fault. That’s on the Supremes.
