Charles Krauthammer

Seldom agreed with his politics, but I respected his opinion and intellect. He was usually an entertaining and provocative voice.

RIP

"Here's how the Top 6 of tonight's NBA Draft is taking shape: 1. Suns: Deandre Ayton. 2. Kings: Marvin Bagley Jr.; 3. Hawks: Luka Doncic; 4. Jaren Jackson, Jr.; 5. Mavericks: Mo Bamba; 6. Magic: Trae Young."

answer.

not happy.

Justice Department officials said the legal authority to end family separation relies on a request they will make in the coming days to Judge Dolly M. Gee of the Federal District Court in Los Angeles, the daughter of immigrants from China who was appointed by President Barack Obama. She oversees a 1997 consent decree, known as the Flores settlement, which prohibits immigration authorities from keeping children in detention, even if they are with their parents, for more than 20 days.

The 1997 case imposes legal constraints on the proper treatment of children in government custody, which stopped Mr. Obama after his administration began detaining families together during a similar flood of illegal immigration several years ago.

Interesting times ahead.



Until Wednesday, Mr. Trump had refused to simply end his government’s zero-tolerance policy that was announced last month and led to the separation of more than 2,300 children from their parents, saying that the alternative would be to fling open the country’s borders and allow immigrants who cross the border illegally to remain in the United States.

This place sucks without me to generate conversation.

Okay, who read the piece in Good Gossage in the NYT the other day?

And the Nats started the trade deadline early yesterday. Lots of teams need bullpen help.

Holder living up to his name either Yanks.

Should Mets be trading away some of their pitching?

Are the Braves this year's version of last year's Twins?

Does Buck Showalter resign?

Discuss.




I'm so glad you fixed it for us, Mr. Utley.

Nobody but you; yes, they did; is he?

Probably; no; and probably not.

Gotta be rich to have a good life in America, seems to me.

Yet another thing you fail to understand about life in America, though I think in this instance it is something you fail to understand about life, in general.

Should be more of it, and longer sentences.
Yes! Little ‘ol Bambu knows what’s happening! Is there some reason we can’t get him into the States (other than the fact that he’s worried he might be slaughtered in the streets by some random psycho)?
HELP UNITE BAMBU WITH HIS AMERICAN ALT-RIGHT BUDDIES! Bring him to the U.S., NOW! Let him in immediately, and let him keep his family too!

Men are having their lives ruined [including having their bank accounts emptied in favour of lawyers trying to defend themselves from lying women.]

See the 'me too' brigade-ilk rushing to the defence of falsely-accused men?
