I do not remember this administration coming out publicly opposing these pieces of legislation in this bill. Did not put up a very big public fight about it that I can remember.

Yeah, they didn't fight it. The way the bills are written, anyone who opposes them will find themselves defending going against the (so-called) good parts because of "a few minor things" buried in the bill. Not very honest, but with a sound-bite attention-span audience, it works quite well.

These "minor" things have been sprinkled throughout many bills and they're adding up to something very unpleasant.

The only thing the WH opposed was the initial bill that didn't go far enough in its declaration of war on and in America. This is a first in world history where a regime has declared war on the whole world, including its own people on their own land.

Does anyone still doubt the intentional destruction of the United States by its own leaders?

My guess is more people are aware of that K-girl's divorce than are aware of this.

"...should any application of these provisions conflict with my constitutional authorities, I will treat the provisions as non-binding."

That's code for: "I'm pretty much gonna do whatever the hell I want just like I always have "

Agree Ridge, the future looks really bad.
