        @ John_in_IN… Re ““Podium” is the piece of kit you stand on. The bit you lay your papers on and stand behind is the “lectern”. I’m amazed how many people get that wrong.”

        No disrespect intended; as, I believe your intent is pure. I also think you have a deep interest in and respect for words and their meanings and usage. You’re also 100% correct as to the original meanings of the words, ‘podium’ and ‘lectern.’

        However, as explained by Merriam-Webster, the meaning and usage of those two words have become interchangeable over time. In other words, we (yes, I’m one, too) old farts who try to find words that fit OUR EXACT intended meaning have lost the battle on this one…

        See https://www.merriam-webster.com/words-at-play/wait-are-you-saying-a-podium-is-the-same-thing-as-a-lectern for the following:

        “A Podium Is the Same Thing as a Lectern…

        We are very sorry to inform those of you who care about this matter that the word podium can truly and without embarrassment refer to what is also called a lectern.

        But let’s back up a bit. Podium in its original English use was an architectural term. The word first referred to a low wall serving as a foundation or terrace wall; one early kind of podium was the kind that went around the arena of ancient amphitheaters and served as a base for the tiers of seats. The word comes from the Latin word podium, and traces back to the Greek word podion meaning “base.” Podion in turn comes from the Greek pod- (or pous), meaning “foot,” which we see in the word podiatrist.

        There are plenty of people who would like to see the ideas of “base” and “foot” preserved in all modern uses of podium, which is why we have an apology to make: the word podium sometimes refers not to a thing you stand on—that is, a thing that supports your feet, a base—but to a thing you stand behind and use to place notes, a book, or whatever else you’re glancing down at as you address or read to a group of people. You know the object: it usually has a slanted top surface and a place to stow a bottle of water or two underneath. It might go all the way to the floor or sit on a table.

        If you’re frowning deeply as you read this you likely know the object as a “lectern” (a word from Latin legere, meaning “to read”). And it is indeed a lectern. But lecterns are also sometimes referred to as podiums (or podia, if you want to use a plural that nods to the word’s Latin history), at least in North America. And this has been true since around the middle of the 20th century.

        The apology we made a couple paragraphs above is, of course, a little facetious. An apology implies an admission of error that we simply cannot make here in good faith. We have nothing to do with an expansion of the word podium to cover lecterns. Words frequently take on other meanings over time, and it is our mandate to report those meanings if and when they become established. Podium is in fact used as a synonym of lectern in published, edited prose by skilled writers. And we’d say it from a podium if we had to.”

    Why is NewsGuard labeling that fake news? Simply because Breitbart News published it. We didn’t even write that story. The AP did. We are simply aggregating the AP…”

      It was never intended to be a path to citizenship.

      Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said Friday that loopholes have allowed some beneficiaries of President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to obtain green cards, and has allowed others to gain full U.S. citizenship.

      DACA allows some illegal immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as minors to obtain renewable, two-year deferments from deportation provided certain criteria are met. It also allows them to work in the U.S., but Grassley said additional benefits were not intended.

      “The DACA program was never intended to provide a pathway to citizenship, and the program’s legal future is in jeopardy,” Grassley said in a release, which drew its conclusions from data supplied by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

            Our problem with the multiple fence concept is our ridiculous catch and release laws.
            If they get past the first fence they are on US soil and claim asylum, then we bus them to the interior of the US to wait for their court dates two years away. They never show up of course. Now PDJT is trying to change that with Central Americans, but he’s been rebuffed by Mexico when he tries to return them.

              The fence is for areas with difficult terrain making a wall extremely expensive. The terrain also means a lower likelihood of attempted crossing. A tall wall is for more popular crossing areas. It’s a high/low mix.

    I understand that POTUS may have to use a “DACA fix” as a bargaining chip to pass legislation that actually fixes some other parts of immigration problem ,,, BUT

    I trust everyone understands that DACA is a bottomless can of worms created by Obama — an unconstitutional bottomless can of worms.

    NOBODY is talking about the parents of the DACA “children” — the ones who were addressed by Obama’s equally unconstitutional DAPA, which was unceremoniously ended by POTUS early on, with minimum fuss from the left, and leaving the parents in the “shadows”, where they now stay voluntarily.

    Now that DACA has been maintained, zombie-like — by a series of lower court fiats — we wait for SCOTUS to rule — but not until next year!!

    If and when DACA is legalized, what will happen to the parents — the adults who knowingly and brazenly broke our laws in the first place??

    1. Nothing — leave them in the shadows, where they are now, and therefore “tear the family apart” with now-legal children and still-illegal parents.

    2. Deport the parents, while their children stay and enjoy a probable eventual path to citizenship, thus “tearing the family part”..

    3.Legalize the parents — keeping the family intact and therefore rewarding the original criminals with their ill-gotten gains.

    Any other choices if DACA is “fixed” ???

      Once one age group gets affirmed for DACA protection, other age groups will demand the same. It truly is a Pandora’s Box of future problems. I’d like to see SCOTUS rule Obama’s original executive order creating DADA to be unconstitutional. That would end the problem.

      And you’re right. The illegal alien parents of the DACA applicants need to be deported.

      Are the children of thieves allowed to keep the proceeds of their parents thievery? NO. Neither should DACA kids be. American citizenship is one of the most valuable things on the planet that 3rd Worlders could steal. ANY kind of amnesty will simply result in more of a draw for illegal entry, just like all the others have.

      If this is not “politically feasible” then we are DONE. The only measures that will prevent conservatives from being made irrelevant by political demographic shifts caused by imported leftists, legal or otherwise, with high birth rates are ones that certainly DO NOT include amnesties of any kind and are FAR more radical than just PART of a wall with a “promise” of future funding.

    It sure is odd to hear Acosta asking if the WH is in danger after listing Manafort, Flynn etc. If only the DOJ and Mueller represented equality under the law instead of one sided political corruption, then Sarah could have read off a very lengthy list of high level indicted and convicted Dems and former FBI and DOJ officials. it might happen yet but I wouldn’t bet a dime.

    Acosta and the rest of the politically corrupted media are the ones that are actually a significant and real danger to the nation. Impartial fair analyses and honest reporting is dead in the MSM and has been replaced by divisive provocations, unjustified character assassinations, deranged hosts going bonkers over fake Gotcha scandals, endless lies and on and on.
