Face facts (not Trump's bullshit “fake news” which oozes out of his mouth every time he opens it).....Trump copped so much vitriol over his nasty-arsehole policy of chucking young kids into caged concentration camps, that he was eventually forced to back-down. Even his own political party was dumping on him over it AND his own wife and daughter came out publicly against his nasty-arsehole tactics against kids. The whole world now knows Trump for the nasty-arsehole CHILD ABUSER he is and his reversal won't change that knowlege.

Good job that Kim Jong-un played Trump like a fiddle in Singapore, eh? He's an idiot and a clown who deserves to be lied to and treated with disrespect in the way Kim Jong-un treated him.

Still digging: Jeff Sessions says Trump administration
‘never really intended’ to separate families


The Trump administration isn't done playing this tortured game, apparently.

By AARON BLAKE | 5:01PM EDT — Thursday, June 21, 2018

THE Trump administration said that family separation wasn't its policy and that it couldn't fix the problem itself. Then it gave lie to all of that by reversing the policy.

You would think it would stop barking up this tree, but you'd be wrong.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in a new interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, seems to double down on the idea that this was never the intent — although he spoke about separating families a full six weeks ago and even described it as a deterrent to potential future illegal immigration.

CBN's David Brody asked Sessions about the “media narrative out there has been that Trump administration is caving to pressure — that these optics have not been good for the administration.”

Here's Sessions's response (emphasis added):


Quote
It hasn't been good, and the American people don't like the idea that we are separating families. We never really intended to do that. What we intended to do was to make sure that adults who bring children into the country are charged with the crime they've committed. Instead of giving that special group of adults immunity from prosecution, which is what, in effect, what we were doing. So I think it's the right thing. We'll work our way through it and try to do it in the most compassionate way possible.

But Sessions has long acknowledged that the Justice Department's “zero-tolerance” policy on illegal immigration would lead to increased family separations. He said on May 7: “If you don't want your child to be separated, then don't bring them across the border illegally. It's not our fault.”

And earlier this week, Sessions said on a Fox News appearance that family separation could be used as a deterrent. “Yes, hopefully people will get the message and come through the border at the port of entry and not break across the border unlawfully.”

It's clear the point he's trying to make: The family separation wasn't the specific goal here but that it was more of an unfortunate side effect and perhaps a means to an end. The real goal was border security and avoiding what was viewed as a loophole that prevented parents from being prosecuted if they brought their kids with them.

But just as Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was really stretching when she said this wasn't the administration's policy, Sessions is being too cute by half here. The administration — and Sessions himself — made clear very early on that its zero-tolerance immigration policy now required these families to be separated, regardless of what the overriding goal was. They knew this is what would be happening and elected to go down this road anyway. Initially, they insisted they had no choice; now with Trump's executive order, they've tacitly but unmistakably admitted that they did and that they chose wrong.

It may be time to stop pretending otherwise. The practical difference is basically nil.

New Zealand's Leader, Jacinda Ardern, Delivers a Baby Girl

The prime minister is the first world leader to give birth in office
since Benazir Bhutto of Pakistan had a child in 1990.

WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND — Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern of New Zealand gave birth to her first child, a girl, on Thursday, making her the first world leader in almost three decades to give birth while in office.

Ms. Ardern, who announced the birth on social media, did not say whether a name had been chosen yet.

Ms. Ardern, 37, whose youth and surprise rise to power have made her a global celebrity, delivered her baby at the country's largest public hospital, in Auckland. Once she entered the hospital on Thursday, Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters officially assumed the role of acting prime minister.

“Welcome to our village wee one,” Ms. Ardern posted on Instagram. “Feeling very lucky to have a healthy baby girl that arrived at 4.45pm weighing 3.31kg (7.3lb),” she wrote. “Thank you so much for your best wishes and your kindness.”

Ms. Ardern will take six weeks of parental leave before returning to work, at which point her partner Clarke Gayford, the host of a television show about fishing, will become a stay-at-home parent.

Ms. Ardern announced her pregnancy in January, just three months after a stunning upset victory that propelled her to the top of the center-left Labour Party and into the prime minister's office in October.

Her pregnancy announcement prompted a national conversation about working mothers, and an international reckoning about the rarity of pregnant women in the world's corridors of power.

In one interview before her election, Ms. Ardern told a reporter it was “unacceptable” to ask women if motherhood would interfere with their ability to succeed in the workplace.

The last leader to deliver a baby while in office was the late Benazir Bhutto, then prime minister of Pakistan, who gave birth to her second child, a daughter, in 1990.

That daughter, Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari, congratulated Ms. Ardern on Twitter on Thursday.

In the 28 years since Ms. Zardari's birth, several women earned their way into their country's executive mansions and offices, but none spent time in the delivery room while in power.

While news reports at the time of Ms. Bhutto's delivery said Pakistanis sang and danced in the streets with joy, she also faced criticism for having a second child. Opposition leaders said that “the country would be leaderless while she was hospitalized,” The New York Times reported at the time.

“There is no easygoing ‘mommy track’ for heads of state,” The N.Y. Times wrote in 1990 about Ms. Bhutto's uphill political battle.

Ms. Bhutto, who temporarily transferred power to her mother, the lawmaker Nusrat Bhutto, while in labor, announced that she was “back on the job” one day after her delivery.

Years after serving a second term as Pakistan's prime minister, Ms. Bhutto was assassinated in 2007.

(Trivia buffs might want to note that Ms. Ardern's baby was born on Ms. Bhutto's birthday.)

In the United States, several politicians have made headlines for their pregnancies in recent years, including Sarah Palin, who as governor of Alaska delivered a baby with Down syndrome in 2008, and Senator Tammy Duckworth of Illinois, whose pregnancy this year prompted Congress to change its rules about allowing babies and breast-feeding in the chamber.

The American ambassador to New Zealand, Scott Brown, on Thursday congratulated Ms. Ardern both in English and in Maori, New Zealand's indigenous language. “Tēnā koe i tō tamāhine. Ngā mihi mahana,” he said on Twitter (it means “Congratulations on the arrival of your new daughter, and best wishes”).

Congratulations also poured in from New Zealanders, some of whom said they were proud of what they saw as a symbolically important moment. “From one working Kiwi mum thank you for showing me I don't have to be treated as less than anymore,” one Twitter user said.

Ms. Ardern's popularity in New Zealand is due in part to her down-to-earth image. A spokeswoman for the prime minister said on Thursday that Mr. Gayford had driven Ms. Ardern to the hospital in the couple's own car.

The prime minister had been given a due date of June 17, and she only stopped flying to and from New Zealand's capital, Wellington, on June 11. On advice from her doctors, she then worked from her home in Auckland, the country's largest city, until the day before she went into labor.

Helen Clark, one of two other women who have been New Zealand's prime minister, said on Thursday in an email that the nation had taken Ms. Ardern's pregnancy in stride. “This is a sign of our maturity as a country and its acceptance that combining career and family is a choice which women are free to make,” said Ms. Clark, who has been a mentor to Ms. Ardern.

Ms. Clark, who left office in 2008, added that Mr. Gayford should be celebrated as “a modern man, who is happy to be the full time parent of a young child.”

“Attitudes have changed a lot on these issues since I entered New Zealand politics, and that's a good thing,” she said.

Good job that Kim Jong-un played Trump like a fiddle in Singapore, eh? He's an idiot and a clown who deserves to be lied to and treated with disrespect in the way Kim Jong-un treated him.

Ripping children (some as young as nine months old) from the arms of their parents and throwing those kids into caged concentration camps is the action of a NAZI nation.

America has sunk to the depths of the worst despot regimes in the world.

Donald J. Trump and Jeff Sessions are child abusers of the worst kind.

It's way past time for the rest of the world to declare America to be a pariah nation and enact sanctions against them.

And idiots/clowns from Woodville in NZ who actively support & cheer-on that sort of child abuse are the equivalent of child abusers themselves and therefore filthy scum who don't deserve to be treated as normal human beings.
