Media Blunders by Midweek on Morning Joe and other Lefty Sources


The latest effort by liberals, conservatives, elitists from the political parties, and those bastions of truth also known as the liberal media, to stop the Trump machine, is underway.  It seems Trump's distain for politicians and the media feeding off the politicians threatens the annual revenue of those parasites making money off the functions of the government, as in paid political commercials.

They lost their minds over Trump's promise to deport babies of illegal immigrants born in the USA.  Trump was condemned for being a fool, for ignoring the Constitution, for trampling over the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, and for being an idiot.

Just who is the idiot?

In truth, Amendments to the Constitution get passed for the very reason of clarifying the impact or extending the scope of the Constitution.  In our history, there have been just twenty-seven Amendments to the Constitution.

Ironically, the most recent one (27th) blocking congress from giving a pay raise for members passed in 1992 though introduced by James Madison way back in 1789.  It took 202 years, 7 months, and 12 days to get the three quarters of the states to approve it.

As for Trump and the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, it was ratified on July 9, 1868, and granted citizenship to “all persons born or naturalized in the United States,” which included former slaves recently freed.

Over 147 years old, it passed after the Civil War in an effort to protect the right of freed slaves to gain citizenship since many slaves did not have documentation on births.  This was not intended to be the basis for immigration policy or illegal immigration activity, just a guarantee of equality for newly freed citizens.

Illegal immigration was not a problem back then yet media mouthpieces jumped all over Trump for suggesting he would deny citizens Constitutional protection.  Trump made the important point that illegal immigrants come to America to give birth to take advantage of a law never meant to address the problem.

We are rewarding a crime with automatic citizenship, a process called "birth right" citizenship.  These kids become anchor babies to allow illegal aliens to remain, especially under proposals from the Obama administration.  Amend the Constitution and fix the law.

We would be protecting those millions of legal immigrants who often waited years to come here legally.

Here is the entire text of Amendment XIV.

Amendment XIV

Section 1.

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Section 2.

Representatives shall be apportioned among the several states according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each state, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the executive and judicial officers of a state, or the members of the legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such state, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such state.

Section 3.

No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

Section 4.

The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any state shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

Section 5.

The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
