The Reviews Are In!

“Noooooooo!”

Comrade Stupid’s caving-in on the Census’ citizenship question has resulted in some stunning reaction from the racists in The New Confederacy, Axios morning email thingie tells us (weird formatting is theirs, I swear):

Top figures in the conservative legal community are stunned and depressed by President Trump’s cave in his fight for a citizenship question on the 2020 Census, Axios’ Jonathan Swan reports.

  • One GOP strategist called it a “punch in the gut.”

A week after insisting that he was “absolutely moving forward,” Trump said in the Rose Garden that he instead was directing federal agencies to try to compile the information using existing databases. (AP)

  • Trump said: “There used to be a time when you could proudly declare, ‘I am a citizen of the United States.'”
  • Democrats, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, cheered.

Sources say Leonard Leo and other Federalist Society stalwarts were shocked and floored by how weak the decision was.

  • “What was the dance … all about if this was going to be the end result?” a conservative leader asked.
  • “A total waste of everyone’s time. … It’s certainly going to give people pause the next time one has to decide how far to stick one’s neck out.”

A senior administration official summed up the internal frustration at the opposition to the fight from key Justice Department lawyers:

  • “What’s sad is the President has been right on this since Day 1, but he’s being told it’s too hard and too long a road legally. Washington lawyers too often bow to the courts and treat them like a higher branch, when this is ripe for a fight, with American people in full support.”

They want to know what it was all about? Prznint Stupid dominated the headlines, and probably scared the undocumented enough that they won’t answer the Census now anyway. Expect to see population drops reported from the big blue states, as well as Texas and Floriduh as the immigrant populace there goes underground.

The last thing Stupid cares about are the pointy heads in his own party, this plays well to his base. They understand what he did and why, and they will believe any lie he tells them.

The Think Tank types don’t realize that Comrade Prznint has no regard for them, they weren’t with him during the 2016 Goat Rodeo and he’s not with them now. They might was well be NeverTrumpers for the amount he cares.

  1. Washington lawyers too often bow to the courts and treat them like a higher branch, when this is ripe for a fight, with American people in full support.

    Well for some values of “American”, “People” and “support”. (also too: “bowing” to court decisions is what you do when you lose in court. It’s kind of the basis of that whole ‘rule of law’ thing they seem to have so much trouble grasping)

    What are the odds said ‘official’ is the Pocket-sized Reinhard Heydrich himself?

    So they claim they can just get the desired info another way – by demanding the relevant data
    (that somehow already exists,) from other Gov’t. Dept’s. and state’s voter rolls, and tax rolls, and SS contributions, which they had access to all along! But that’s doing things the hard way – someone has to do some actual work correlating the data and then condensing it to a form that Humpy Dumpy can understand.

    No,it would been far easier and better to just have the Hispanics and LatinXs snitch on themselves, amirite? Because if they didn’t, they could be prosecuted for either not answering that particular question, or by ignoring the Census questionnaire altogether, both of which are significant violations of Federal Law.

    Besides, as well – the “Short-form” questionnaire still contains the question, I’ve been told, but there are only a million of those going out, dispersed evenly to all parts of the country.

      It’s the other way around. The short form, which is used for reapportionment of Congress, etc., just asks number of people as the Constitution requires. The long form has asked the citizenship question along with a lot of other questions for a long time. But the long form is not used for reapportionment. This Fake Issue was never about including a citizenship question. It was only whether it would be used to reduce the population to be included in reapportioning Congress making it much whiter and more conservative, especially in chronically red states.

    A GOP strategist said it was a punch in the gut. Really? Seeing the photo of the man and his baby girl lying drowned in the river was a punch in the gut. Trump’s cave-in was not. Trump’s strategists need to re-evaluate their outrage meters.

    This plays well to FatNixon’s base? I was hoping they’d be depressed and skip the election, staying home and fondling their Confederate flags.
