      Illegally migrating and taking over your neighbor’s homeland/property is discussed in Deuteronomy 19:14: “Do not move your neighbor’s boundary stone set up by your predecessors in the inheritance you receive in the land the LORD your God is giving you to possess.” New International Version

    Spicer still reports that ObamaCare repeal and replace is in process, followed by Tax legislation. I’ll believe this will happen when pigs fly. With Pence, good luck.

    The only thing that has happened has involved Trump’s direct involvement. If he wants real relief for America and Americans, he will have to be directly involved. That and God, more God, these RepubliRats are faithless

    I am still pissed off with the Flynn political assassination by Pence. Flynn had a direct understanding of Islam.

    Back to wait and see with emphasis on wait. Nuclear Newt would have had the cabinet in place long ago and Obama traitors purged. I hate traitors and foot draggers with a list of excuses.

    This week reporters have actually behaved like civilized people.
    Perhaps they received an ultimatum

    The reporters asking why the White House may be involved with assuring that political appointees are politically aligned with POTUS…
    Pretty stupid.

    “Is the White House micromanaging?”

    I certainly hope so!

    I would like to ask whether they hire reporters from right-wing news sources, and whether, if someone did that, the editorial board at their news agency might also get involved in the hiring.

        yah. for example, the big ‘tell’ – why do they ask about what President Trump tweeted about the disruptions at town halls? They’re ‘reporters’ so go to the town halls and report what’s happening and start publishing the organizers names and the funding sources.
        no, they’re parked in their coveted seats a thousand miles from any ‘town hall’ reporting on a question about a tweet about ‘town halls.’.

    Thanks for the reports the the press conference.

    Any mention of Dreamers?

    Anyone here familiar with immigration law? Is it true that if Dreamers were allowed to remain in the country, they would by law be allowed to bring in their parents and family members??? If true, it seems that keeping Dreamers leaves only childless illegals as permanently deportable.

    Anyone know the laws around this question ..can Dreamers really bring back in their parents and other relatives?

      Might have missed it, my ipad acting up. But I did not hear any dreamers mentioned today.

      Some dreamers are already being deported. Those that dreamed of having the baddest, most murderous crime gangs in all of America.

      Me, I don’t like calling illegal aliens “American Dreamers.”

      The only American Dreamers that belong in the USA are US citizens and those that enter legally and with love for the USA, to fulfill their dreams of becoming US citizens.

      All else, IMO, should be sent out, back to wherever they are citizens.

        Dreamers is a misnomer created by Obama. They are still illegal aliens no matter what color of lipstick you put on those pigs. People that truly dream of a better life in America come in the legal way and contribute something to society instead of bleeding society dry.


    • Jason says:

      They did ask about DACA and DAPA and whether the ‘exception’ in yesterday’s orders meant they are accepted/settled law or something along the lines. Spicer redirected stating the EOs were meant to establish a priority and means to remove the known criminal illegals.

      Pretty sure the order prevents future Dreamers from avoiding deportation as well as unaccompanied ‘children’ who are smuggled over and then united with their parents who are here illegally but not a lawyer and didn’t stay at holiday inn express.

    • Rush discussed that today, it’s the one thing we have to do carefully, his feeling was if all the bad guys go, dealing with the dreamers (and their parent(s) ) would be a small price to pay.


  8. OMG. Seriously? “The Oscars are Sunday night – will the President be watching?”

    Is THIS the MOST important question you could think of, lady??!

      And whoa, whoa – that the Meryl Streeps of the world might SAY something.
      So glad Spicer shot this down. If it weren’t for the pretentious press, the pretentious Hollywoodies would have fewer people to fawn over them.

      Not watching the Oscars – it’s my boycott. They are meaningless.

      Kudos to the Press Secretary.

      • The word “Oscars” brings to memory a shaggy, green, curmudgity puppet from my childhood known as “Oscar the Grouch”.
        Now that I think of it, perhaps that name is truly appropriate to Sunday night’s Hollywood event since it will be filled with the same, like-minded and behavior oriented people that match perfectly with that puppet from Sesame Street.
        Meryl Streep wins best “oscar” for her performance as Oscar the Grouch post Trump’s Presidential election.

        The last Oscars I watched was the last time Bob Hope was host. The last movie I bought a ticket to go see was Chisun. Hollyweird has made ZERO money off of me.

      Disgusting! Trump fights for a year for the American people – all of us out here trying to get by – to gain the WH and some twit wastes time on cultural garbage. Personally, I am not a big fan of fiction, would not invest 1$ in a “film”, not to mention TV garbage.

    Sean does a great job with these pressers.. I never thought I would actually enjoy watching the WH Daily’s like I have with this administration..
    Once again, President Trump made a very good choice in selecting Spicer. Sean usually appears to be highly informed and maintains excellent control of the briefings..
    So far nothing but kudos for Sean..

        The Dreamer applicants would
        have to meet all requirements. For decades judges gave delinquents the choice of military or reform school. Nothing new here. And btw the Civil Service has to take some convicts (rehabilitated offender hiring program) and also people who have been institutionalized (mentally restored persons hiring program).

    A great avenue for Sean Spicer to use is the Stephen Miller “Asked and answered” ….
    Sean could start answering the repetitive questions “Asked and answered and you can do your journalistic duties and easily find that out. Next.”

    Or better yet … Find out some of Sean’s family type gatherings or anniversaries, maybe even Sean’s children schedules and have Steve go do the WH press meetings a few times. Mr. Miller could go out and say “Sean has gone to celebrate his parents anniversary with them and I will be with you today and tomorrow.” ..ouch.. Then point directly at MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson or ABC’s Jon Carl and then give his smile and point at CNN’s Jim Acosta.

    Watch the press corp get real nice and stop with the ‘got-cha’ repetitiveness after Miller explodes on the first one with his intellectual grip on their true motives and watch for his sly smile and flick of his eyebrows. Totally embarrass them.

    My comment previously posted to the wrong thread (Silence of the Shams) Apologies.
    Today’s press briefing was tighter. By keeping things more concise, the pool will hopefully begin policing itself through peer pressure – outlawing duplicate and less relevant questions. Today, time wasters included two questions on transgender bathrooms, Cabinet “discourse” gossip (x2) and the usual b.s. on illegal alien deportations. Mr. Spicer has responded multiple times on DHS deportation activity. He should refuse any further elaboration.

    Yesterday’s briefing is still troublesome, based on the WSJ article about “removal of Steve Bannon” from the National Security team on request”. Where did this story come from?


  16. woohoowee says:

    Impressive! What a change Spicer and team have made with what was a zoo. The absence of the same old redundant questions today was great 🙂 My favorite from this one is the clear and concise statement re: Obamacare in response to Jonathan Carl’s attempt to further the chaos at Town Hall’s, er, I mean, question. *Anyone* can now understand exactly what is going on b/c Spicer stated “…they’re losing their healthcare anyway under Obamacare…” along with the easy to understand explanation he put forth as to why that’s happening.

    YAY Team Trump45!


  17. SharonKinDC says:

    One help for Spicer may be having a Dir of Comms in place. Spicer was doing BOTH jobs. It was too much for one person. Think the new guy started yesterday or Monday.

    First question about a crapper! Look how great the obama existing obama rules extended freedoms from UB for Milo!
    Second question will all the imbedded obama supporters be canned? The boys and girls must of forgot the obama hiring process, “we won you lost” or Hillary/Bill on Travel employees etc.
    Third question, the staffer slowing down in filling positions! Would some one outside the press core inform them the country is headed into the 3, third month of cabinet appointments and the democrats remain in total disarray!
    Very clear these folks listen to very fake news! Just one of the reasons they should be replaced yesterday. No sense doing the same ole Pinocchio garbage expecting different results.
    Ps at least remove the first row! Call it De-clutter!
