    A White House spokesman left often the possibility Friday that President Trump would invoke an arcane law that would allow him to deploy the military to remove illegal immigrants, as Trump warned migrants on Twitter that they could be leaving the country soon.

    Asked during a television appearance whether Trump is considering using the Insurrection Act, spokesman Hogan Gidley said the president is “going to do everything within his authority to protect the American people” and has “lots of tools at his disposal.”

    “We haven’t used them all, and we’re looking at ways to protect the American people,” Gidley said during an appearance on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.” ... His interview took place amid a series of tweets from Trump, including some that suggested new actions to crack down on illegal immigrants.
    ....

    The idea of using the law was first reported by the Daily Caller, a conservative news outlet, after Trump finished his speech Thursday afternoon. ... Such a plan would involve deployment of the National Guard and cooperation of governors who might not be inclined to go along with Trump’s order.

    The world is not fair, and often fools, cowards, liars and the selfish hide in high places.

    The slow-rising central horror of "Watergate" is not that it might grind down to the reluctant impeachment of a vengeful thug of a president whose entire political career has been a monument to the same kind of cheap shots and treachery he finally got nailed for, but that we might somehow fail to learn something from it.

    It's called an administration, not a regime.
    Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent
