Default 800 seizures of private land so tRUmp can pretend he fulfilled a campain promise

https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...0f6_story.html


Kushner is Trump's bagman. "Peace in the middle east" gives Kush a reason to go to Saudi Arabia and various other hot spots to arrange Trump's kickback and bribes. The opioid crisis? Shake down big Pharma for some campaign contributions in exchange for protection. Now the border wall. Where billions of dollars in construction costs are about to be funneled through a few companies.

This is how the Soviet Union collapsed. Political appointees instead of a meritocracy. Watch as $1bn literally fall down a hole because noone can get it through to the boss that building on quicksand is not a good idea.

If Jared follows his past actions the president of Mexico will record him on the phone with the Bolivian junta giving them the okay to murder journalists. Which the president of Mexico will use to blackmail trump into withdrawing the US from Texas.

Then the wall being built in colorado will totally make sense. MAGA!!!

Not even close.
Obama seized enough land in his 8 years to cover Texas three times.
You never said a word about it.
President Barack Obama has set a new record for the amount of land and water seized by a single chief executive: over 553 million acres, or about 865,000 square miles. That’s 30 percent more acreage than the entire state of Alaska and over three times the size of Texas.

As long as that land being seized through eminent domain for border walls I have no problem with it. Eminent domain should only be used for public roads roads and border walls/fences because those are about the only things that can't be moved. A public K-12 school or government building can be relocated or an extra floor added to accommodate the lack of ground level space. Its when eminent domain is being used for private use much like Trump tried to use it to take someone's house away for a parking garage or land being seized for the Keystone XL pipe line that I have a problem for.

I am sure being the leftist he is it's cool for the federal government to seize land for preserves and parks. But a sliver of a fraction of that for along the border for a wall and fence to deter people from illegally entering the cuontry and he'll scream bloody murder.

A rancher in Idaho loses the cattle ranch his family built for over 120 years. But it's for the "better good" so it is okay. Even if we must resort to military action and real bullets to do it. But a rancher losing a few acres on the border he cannot even use, in order to protect his property and the nation, is a catastrophic infringement.

It's like you took classes on being stupid. Obama didn't seize land you intellectually lazy narwhall tusk. He designated land ALREADY OWNED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT as national monuments to protect the environment. It's not like Obama ordered the Army to take some Rancher's land like tRUmp is doing. Let's at least be real.

And you hypocrites complain about media bias.

Why don't you ask the people who own the land on the border how they feel about having their land stolen from them so the president can pretend to have a political victory over something that will never happen so they can funnel hundreds of millions of dolllars to his donors who will then funnel money directly back into his campaign and kiss his ass on FOX news.

Oh, its already happened.

As I said in my first post in this thread I have no problem with eminent domain being used to put walls on the border. If Trump was trying to use eminent domain for private use like he did years ago when he was trying to take someone's house for a parking garage I would have a problem with that. This isn't the case of eminent domain being used for a private use. Border walls and public roads are the two things eminent domain should be used for. I don't give a rats ass if its Trump's buddies or some random strangers who gets paid to build the wall as long as they build the wall and that wall gets built right.

I know I would be all for the wall on my land, if I lived on the border. Only an idiot would not want that. Hell, I have walls and fences around both of my houses.

But that's just to keep all the dogs in. My main property has 15 gates The main gate opens electronically.
