LOL wrong again stupid. Checkmate nothing.
You stated the ACT contains an 'exceptional circumstance clause' which the Obama Administration could use to bypass or ignore all the other provisions and requirements of due process contained in the act. You accuse the Obama Administration of "manufacturing" the crisis and could simply deport the UACs enmasse back to where they came from without first detaining them and holding hearings as the ACT requires.
Now for the UPTEENTH Time Okneel ....
Show the class where your 'exceptional circumstance clause' is found in the Act ---- IF IT EVEN EXISTS --- AND explain what the exception means and what relevance it has to the UAC issue.
If you can't do this, then STFU Okneel because I'm calling you a FRAUD.
You're still alive? I thought you would've done it by now.

You accusing me of grade school bantering? If you are, you're not following along here very well. There's no grade school banter coming from me. Its Oneal you need to go after for grade school bantering.

Oneal claims there's an exception that allows Obama to ship the UACs back without due process requirements in the Act and accuses Obama of intentionally not using because that would interfere with his goal of driving his agenda on immigration reform. I asked him repeatedly to explain where this exception can be found in the act, what it means and what relevance it has to his theory. He refuses to provide answers and then changes the narrative to me having to prove how old I am and whether I have a job.

There you have it. Go after stupid. He's the fraud here, not me.

It's clear no matter what I say, the progressive idiot squad is going to demean it, because that's what they do. It's also clear, as has happened in the past, when the "proof" of peoples' comments are posted, usually in a long form legal document or statistical report, the same morons demanding the proof are simply too dense to comprehend it, and too lazy to read it.

SO, pipedream ... if you don't trust my word on the trafficking law's "exceptional circumstances" clause, or that Obama could, if he chose to, be using this in the current border mess, maybe you'll accept the word of one of the authors of this law, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who's also a democrat:

http://blog.sfgate.com/nov05election/2014/07/...

[Feinstein says the law has an “exceptional circumstances” loophole that could give the administration more flexibility to remove children.

She told Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, who wants more flexibility to deport, that the law contains a provision for “exceptional circumstances” that could provide the administration the authority it wants without changing the law.

She argued that “exceptional circumstances” could be triggered by large numbers coming in.]

Hmmmm .... seems to back up my statement, and explain why and how Obama could put this to use considering the statements made by this administration that indeed these are children, and indeed they are coming over in large numbers.

AND, here is a link to the law, in all it's legal splendor, if you care to parve through it for more "proof":

http://www.state.gov/j/tip/laws/113178.htm

I'm sure this won't appease you either, as you'll demand I waste my time paging through this ridiculously long document to find the exact wording that backs Sen. Feinstein's assertions, but at that I say kiss my ass. I'm done trying to squeeze intelligence out of progressive concrete block.

You're on your own here from here on out, pole smoker. Good luck!

Taken from the liberals''Idiots Guide To Debating When You're Too Lazy To Work' handbook:

Chapter One: Call them racists.

Chapter Two: Blame Bush.

Chapter Three: Tell the to STFU.

Simple!

BTW: Don't pat yourself on the back too hard on your theory that everyone gives Obama all that credit. I don't refer to him as the "Celebrity-In-Chief" because I think he's actually working on legislation! I refer to him as that because I know exactly why he was plopped in as the token figurehead for the neo-progressive movement - Chapter One of the Liberal idiot's guide is your first clue.

The fact there's still dopes naive enough to think that Obama's stash is going to pay their rent - and those droolers reside on YOUR side of the political/social fence - should give you reason to look in the mirror and stop disrespecting those of us who've warned about this smoke and mirrors administration from the start.

I've read the link that contains Feinstein's assertion before. You haven't produced anything here that's a new revelation. And this Link does nothing to show what the so-called "exceptional circumstances clause" is except to say that large numbers of UACs may have something to do with it. The trouble with your link is that it doesn't say exactly what Feinstein was referring to when she said the existing law "MAY" provide the administration with more 'flexibility' in removing children. And she did use the term "MAY" .... Essentially she's saying there's flexibility in the law that may make wholesale changes to the law she supports unnecessary, but doesn't say what that is. Whatever she meant by it, I have to believe its far short of simply stopping them at the border and shipping them back as you seem to be saying would be OK. I believe that that flexibility she's talking about could mean a lot of things. If it was easy Oneal, I'm pretty sure it would be on the table for consideration. The Obama Administration has been working with both sides of the aisle to come up with ways to deal with the problem.

No doubt, Obama's on a slick path to record low approvals. But, what difference does it make now anyway, right?

His concern is with kissing Swillary's sizable pasty behind like a good little progressive boy. That's Barry Hussein's tab for being handed the White House to party in for 8 years on the American middle classer's bank.

Barry is a glorified community organizer, run on because, as Joe Biden let loose, ""I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said. "I mean, that's a storybook, man."

LOL ... even his own future cabinet told us why they hired him! Of course, they're not racist at all :)

You Parve thru it Stupid. I don't need to disprove you. You made the claim - you back it up. You show us just where its located and what it means and how it supports your position that Obama is using this to drive his agenda on immigration reform

Its really that simple asshole and I'm sick of telling you what you need to do.

Either show me you're right or STFU! Now run along and whine like a little girl because you're not getting your way again on here.

yes it is quite simple stupid. Back up your claims OR STFU. This is exactly what I asked you to do REPEATEDLY on the UAC issue and your rants that the law provides for exceptional circumstances. I asked you to provide me with answers that support your position.

You still haven't done it. So like I said in a previous post -- Either STFU or just walk away whining like a little girl because you're not getting your way. I don't give a F what you do, but you're not going to get a free pass to post your b.s. nonsense rants on here. You're going to be challenged each and every time. That's the way it work Stupid. Get used to it.

Wrong. Laws were not broken. The IRS was simply doing their job by scrutinizing 501 4c applications and scrutinizing the filings to ensure the groups were in fact eligible for the tax exempt status. no different than doing an audit on a tax return. Where it turned into them "TARGETING" and discriminating against conservative groups were unmitigated lies put out by faux blows and other right wing extremist haters.
The IRS broke NO laws. It was hyped up nonsense, nothing more. Prove the IRS broke laws or just like I told Oneal, just STFU because and try removing your nose from Beck's and Limbaugh's A.H.

I really don't think you're smart enough to think anything up until you've read or heard it put out by faux blows. You're amount to typical low information white trash to ignorant and stupid to know any better.

Exactly. As Obama said, not a smidget of corruption only hyped up bull $h1t from the right.

That there was no corruption or laws broken, just good work on the part of IRS to sniff out the law breakers (T-baggers) is well documented.

Go suck on that for awhile stupid.

And millions and millions of them are suffering buyer's remorse and will be sincere when they vote AGAINST Obama and the progressives in 2014 and 2016. Mr. Obama has done more harm to the Democratic party than Jimmy Carter did and that is going some! Hope you are really proud of the "hope and change" you got.
