Trump Spanks Paul Ryan Over Birthright Citizenship, No Wonder He’s Retiring

Be better, Paul!

After President Donald Trump said he’d look for a way to end birthright citizenship (possibly via executive order), Speaker of the House Paul Ryan wasn’t on board.

“You obviously cannot do that. You cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order,” Ryan, who rarely breaks with the president, told WVLK radio. “We didn’t like it when Obama tried changing immigration laws via executive action, and obviously as conservatives, we believe in the Constitution.”

“I’m a believer in following the plain text of the Constitution, and I think in this case, the 14th Amendment’s pretty clear, and that would involve a very very lengthy Constitutional process,” Ryan said Tuesday. “I believe in interpreting the Constitution as its written, and that means you can’t do something like this via executive order.”

Ryan is set to retire from Congress come January.

Check out Trump’s words for Paul:

Trump is right. Ryan’s focus should be on retaining the House.

Women from Mexico and many, many other nations come to America by any means necessary in order to give birth.

This give’s their children American citizenship by default.

What ends up happening is the American-born kids don’t get deported and often times neither do the mothers (or fathers).

It is a system of which plenty of Americans are not fond.

About that potential executive order to end birthright citizenship.

President Trump plans to sign an executive order that would remove the right to citizenship for babies of non-citizens and unauthorized immigrants born on U.S. soil, he said yesterday in an exclusive interview for “Axios on HBO,” a new four-part documentary news series debuting on HBO this Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT.

Why it matters: This would be the most dramatic move yet in Trump’s hard-line immigration campaign, this time targeting “anchor babies” and “chain migration.” And it will set off another standoff with the courts, as Trump’s power to do this through executive action is debatable, to say the least.

WATCH:

The problem with the EO is that Trump may run into trouble constitutionally.

Enter South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who plans to introduce legislation to make the process easier:

Now more than ever it is absolutely vital the GOP retains both chambers of Congress in November’s midterm elections.

Fauci Appears to Downplay Concern Over Omicron Variant

But days after similar statements arrived from South African doctors who were actually treating patients.

Published

For months and months, Dr. Anthony Fauci has been earning his nickname of “Dr. Doom”, as he continues to expound on the threat of COVID-19 and its variants with increasingly alarming language.

The sheer gloom of Fauci’s alleged revelations have been cause for criticism, particularly among conservative like Senator Rand Paul, who has quite the penchant for excoriating the spectacled epidemiologist.

But now, as the omicron variant continues to spread in the US and beyond, Fauci’s demeanor has taken a turn toward the trite.

President Joe Biden’s chief medial adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, told CNN’s “State of the Union” that scientists need more information before drawing conclusion’s about omicron’s severity.

Reports from South Africa, where it emerged and is becoming the dominant strain, suggest that hospitalization rates have not increased alarmingly.

“Thus far, it does not look like there’s a great degree of severity to it,” Fauci said. “But we have really got to be careful before we make any determinations that it is less severe or it really doesn’t cause any severe illness, comparable to delta.”

Fauci wasn’t ready to lift any travel restrictions just yet, however.

Fauci said the Biden administration is considering lifting travel restrictions against noncitizens entering the United States from several African countries. They were imposed as the omicron variant exploded in the region, but U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has blasted such measures as “travel apartheid.”

“Hopefully we’ll be able to lift that ban in a quite reasonable period of time,” Fauci said. “We all feel very badly about the hardship that has been put on not only on South Africa but the other African countries.”

Americans have long felt as though they’ve been in the waning stages of the coronavirus pandemic as a whole, and this latest news of weakening variants could be seen as one of the final nails in the viral coffin.

‘RUST’ SHOOTING: Alec Baldwin Not Out of The Woods Yet, Says Santa Fe District Attorney

Baldwin has suggested that he won’t be charged, but the local DA has other ideas.

Published

on

The story surrounding the shooting death of cinematographer Halya Hutchins continues to grow stranger by the day, and a district attorney in New Mexico just dropped a major bombshell in the direction of Alec Baldwin.

Baldwin was rehearsing for a scene when the firearm he was holding discharged live ammunition, killing Hutchins and injuring others.  The gun somehow had a live round in it, despite there being a number of ethical and legal reasons why this should not have been possible.

To further confuse things, Baldwin has wildly suggested that he never pulled the trigger of the gun – something that experts are going to have to find a way to prove in order to clear Baldwin’s culpability.

Now, a local litigator has suggested that Baldwin should be prepared for the worst.

On Friday, First Judicial District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies clarified that it is still very possible for Alec Baldwin to be “criminally culpable” in Hutchins’ death depending on what the investigation yields.

“Certain individuals may be criminally culpable for his/her actions and/or inactions on the set of Rust,” Carmack-Altwies told Deadline.

Carmack-Altwies asserted that she will “exercise my prosecutorial discretion to its fullest, including filing charges that are supported by probable cause.”

The possibilities are numerous.

The district attorney further clarified that “everyone” handling firearms on the set of Rust had a duty to follow safety protocols.

“Everyone involved in the handling and use of firearms on the set had a duty to behave in a manner such that the safety of others was protected, and it appears that certain actions and inactions contributed to this outcome,” Carmack-Altwies the attorney said.

During the interview in which Baldwin suggested that he never pulled the trigger, he also insinuated that he’d spoken with the local sheriff’s department, and that there was some sort of understanding between he and them regarding the lack of charges to be brought.
