An Out-of-Control Lower Court Judge

from Conservative Review:

Sitting federal judge to Trump: I can compare you to the KKK but you can’t criticize me

Carlton Reeves

You cannot criticize me ever, but I can criticize you. Even though you’re up for reelection, you have no power, but I am the final say on all matters, even though I am unelected. I can disobey higher courts but you can’t push back even against a lower court. If you don’t like it, then you are a member of the KKK.

Who am I?

Well, a federal judge, of course.

Last week, a radical federal judge went on a tirade against President Trump, ironically, criticizing him for criticizing outlandish rulings by federal judges. Carlton Reeves, an Obama-appointed judge in Mississippi, delivered an unprecedented personal attack on the president. Typically they wait until retirement for such tirades, but Reeves, who has been prone to such tirades in his written opinions, let loose on what he called “the great assault on our judiciary.” read more

WND Exclusive – MR. PRESIDENT, DISREGARD JUDGE’S OIL-DRILLING RULING

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

The radical environmental lobby recently got a shot in the arm by means of a judge’s ruling.

Last Friday, U.S. District Court Judge Sharon Gleason, an Obama appointee, slapped down President Trump’s move to open up the Chukchi Sea in the Arctic, north of the Bering Strait, as well as other places, in the Atlantic, for oil and gas drilling.

CNBC wrote, “The judge ruled that Trump exceeded his authority when he reversed Obama-era restrictions on offshore drilling in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans.”

Well, not to mince words or anything, but it sounds like CNBC wrote this to imply to its readers that these Obama-era restrictions were actual laws passed by Congress. read more

WND Exclusive – SMOLLETT: STANDARD BEARER OF SOCIAL JUSS-TICE

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

For the past few years, America has been treated to the constant drumbeat condemning “white privilege.” No matter what your station in life, if you were born Caucasian, you, my friend, are privileged. Tell that to the all the whites living below the poverty line in middle America.

Now there’s a new privileged class: the minority, politically connected, first-time offender. This is the new Juss-tice, and Mr. Smollett is its groundbreaking standard bearer. read more

WND Exclusive – WHY IMMIGRATION IS OUT OF CONTROL

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

The other day on Rush Limbaugh’s radio program, he was discussing with a caller how the flood of illegal aliens continues over the border, while we are all transfixed on other issues such as the Mueller probe report, the outcome of the Manafort conviction, or the Lisa Page testimony.

There are many shiny objects that distract us from the problems that continue at the border.

The caller said that this is exactly what the left is attempting to do – use sleight-of-hand tricks to distract us from the left’s plan to have illegals infiltrate red states and turn them blue. read more

Congress Must Act Against Lower Courts They Created

from Conservative Review:

While everyone sleeps, the courts are abolishing all immigration enforcement

Congress could never get away with creating constitutional rights for illegal aliens to remain here, yet a single lower court just did so on Thursday. And where Congress would face deep reprisal in the next election, faceless judges will never feel the heat.

Conservatives fear that extreme Democrats might actually abolish ICE and all immigration enforcement, but the lower courts are already systematically abolishing ICE’s authority, nullifying immigration enforcement statutes, violating separation of powers, and constantly increasing the wave of bogus asylum-seekers that they originally spawned with other radical rulings. The latest ruling from the Ninth Circuit demonstrates that unless Republicans and the president begin pushing back against these radical judges and delegitimizing their rulings, Democrats will get everything they want without ever facing electoral backlash or even the need to win elections. read more

Mueller’s Pit Bull, Andrew Weissmann, used Bullying Tactics in Enron Case

from the Federalist:

Explosive New Documents Reveal Andrew Weissmann’s Misconduct In Enron Case

The records expose efforts by special counsel attorney Andrew Weissmann to intimidate witnesses and to interfere in the attorney-client relationship of a cooperating witness.

Nearly four months ago, Houston-based attorney Kevin Fulton filed, on my behalf, a motion to unseal records in a case headed by Andrew Weissmann, who is now a member of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team. Late Thursday, a federal district court judge in Texas granted (with one exception), the motion to unseal, making some of those documents publicly available for the first time. read more

Does the Constitution Mean Anything Anymore?

This story goes back about 7 months, but it’s still as relevant today as it was then, and will become more so as we get closer to the 2020 elections. It’s about a lawsuit that struck down a Kansas State voter I.D. law.

I recall reading about it but didn’t give it much more than a passing tisk-tisk at the time. But somehow it recently resurfaced. I thought it was something new so I read it judiciously. And that’s when it hit me. As I’m a States Right guy, I don’t know why it didn’t then, but it sure struck a chord this time around.

In June, 2018, Reuters reported that, “A federal judge struck down a Kansas law requiring proof of U.S. citizenship to register to vote in a decision on Monday that could make voter registration easier in the state in the run-up to November mid-term elections. The ruling ended a two-year legal battle in which Democrats argued that such ID laws targeted voters who typically support their party, such as the young and minorities. Republican proponents of the law said it was necessary to ensure the integrity of elections.”

Yes, the Dems do have a point. What they appear to be saying is that the young and minorities are just too darn stupid and/or lazy to obtain the proper I.D. necessary to register. It sounds harsh, but how can we conclude anything else. According to the Democrat Party, their voters are just that stupid. It’s a wonder they can find their way out of bed in the morning, much less to the polls. read more

Another Plea for Mike Lee

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had another health scare recently. After surgery and treatment she has apparently been given a clean Image result for supreme courtbill of health.

But this latest scare has once again prompted many to speculate just when Ginsburg will decide to hang it up, or that her failing health might decide.

This will mean that Trump will get a third bite at the supreme Court apple.

Many thought that the Kavanaugh confirmation would flip the court from progressive to constitutionalist, but that may not end up being the case. This one however, could put the final nail in the coffin of leftist court activism.

But recent history is replete with Republican “wrong” choices for supreme Court, from David Souter to John Paul Stevens, Sandra Day O’Connor and, of course, Mr. swing-vote, Anthony Kennedy. Chief Justice John Roberts has turned out be anything but a constitutionalist. Thanks to Roberts, we have ObamaCare. read more

Trump Can Use his Veto Pen and Bully Pulpit to End Illegal Immigration

The question is…will he?

from Conservative Review:

The American taxpayer is ALWAYS the Forgotten Man — especially in the immigration fight

The president will never have as much leverage or a better impetus for a budget fight than he does now. Will he finally demand action and use his veto for leverage?

On December 8, the government will face its final budget deadline with Republicans in control of the trifecta of government. A budget, at its core, is an expression of our values. There is no greater value more relevant to this budget deadline than protecting the taxpayers from the high cost of illegal aliens invading our border, draining our schools and communities, and flooding us with the most deadly drugs and gangs that help fund international terrorism. It’s high time for Trump to finally take his case to the American people in dramatic fashion and threaten to veto any bill that fails to address the border crisis, not just from the standpoint of funding the border wall, but also ending the invasion permanently. read more

CNN’s Striking Ignorance of the Federal Judiciary

I was reading an article about Immigration and family separation on CNN’s website the other day. It was yet another tug-at-the-heartstrings piece, sympathetic to illegals while demonizing border security and I.C.E. You know – a kill two birds with one stone type of thing.

The article began by stating: “Six months after US officials separated them at the border, ICE put a 4-year-old girl on a plane to Guatemala this week so she could be reunited with her father.”

According to CNN, the father, who was deported back to Guatemala 6 months ago, lived 8 hours from the airport, but only learned of his daughter’s arrival 30 minutes prior to her touching down. There was no mention of a mother.

The girl would then have to spend another night in a shelter awaiting her father’s arrival. Again, not a single mention of a mother. read more
