Democrat Immigration Hypocrisy on Display Yet Again

from the Daily Caller:

FEINSTEIN URGED OBAMA TO USE PRESIDENTIAL POWER TO LIMIT IMMIGRATION: ‘NO LEGISLATION NECESSARY’

  • Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California encouraged then-President Barack Obama to use broad presidential powers to tighten immigration rules in response to a wave of migration from Central America in 2014.
  • In a letter to Obama, Feinstein cited the same statutory authority that President Donald Trump invoked to make illegal border-crossers ineligible for asylum.
  • That authority comes from Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which allows the president to “impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein encouraged then-President Barack Obama to use the “very broad power” granted to him by Congress to limit immigration in any way he saw fit, according to a letter obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. read more

Democrat Cheating is a Moral Imperative

There is no such thing as a fair election anymore. The democrats won’t allow it. They treat winning elections and elected office as a birthright.

It’s why they feel perfectly justified to lie and cheat and steal elections. Oh sure, they all understand that “legally” it’s not allowed, which is why they try to conceal it. But they tell themselves that it’s justified because the stakes are just too high, and the ramifications of a loss are just too great to be left to chance – particularly in today’s political climate.

I mean, look who is in the White House – the devil himself, Donald Trump. Something, anything, must be done to counteract such a caustic, divisive, misogynist, racist, white nationalist.

And after all, how many movies have we seen where the hero or heroine (how sexist), must break, or at least skirt, the law to save the day. It’s a moral calling, regardless of the legality. read more

Democrats Come to the Aid of Once Hated Jeff Sessions

The saga of the Jeff Sessions firing is fascinating.

I’ve heard many conservatives say that Sessions should not have been fired. And more so that president Trump should not have been so outwardly hostile to the man for recusing himself from involvement in the dinner theater that is the Mueller investigation.

But what was the president suppose to do? As I understand it, Jeff Sessions gave no indication that he would recuse himself prior to being appointed Attorney General. It was only after he was confirmed, that Sessions dropped that bombshell.

Trump had every right to be angry. Sessions should have told Trump ahead of the appointment so that president could make an informed decision to even nominate him. Trump could then have easily pulled the nomination in favor of someone else.

Now that Trump has pulled the trigger and fired Sessions, the democrats are predictably howling about it. Like Sessions was this great guy. read more

Morgan Says Dems Need More than a Blue Wave in 2020

Piers Morgan ridicules ‘blue wave,’ says Dems need a better 2020 plan or ‘Trump will drown them’

English journalist Piers Morgan laid into Democrats in an op-ed published Wednesday in the Daily Mail.

Morgan mocked the Democrats’ “blue wave” and suggested that they better have a bigger and better 2020 plan in place if they want a chance at unseating President Donald Trump.

Trump is Constitutionally Correct in Ending Birthright Citizenship

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The subject of birthright citizenship is once again in the news. President Trump says he intends to sign an Executive order ending the practice. Leftists and faux-constitutional scholars are up in arms. What a shock.

CNN writes that, “Such a step would be regarded as an affront to the US Constitution, which was amended 150 years ago to include the words: ‘All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States.’”

In 2015, then candidate Trump exclaimed his desire to deport all illegal aliens. In rebuttal, Robert Tracinski at The Federalist  argued that deporting birthright citizens would be a direct assault on the Constitution and “the thousand year history of English common law.”

Tracinski explained that at the time of the founding, America embraced birthright citizenship – that “for the Founders, rejecting jus soli or birthright citizenship would have meant either greatly restricting the growth and expansion of the new nation or, more likely, creating a system in which there was a large and growing subpopulation of people who were disenfranchised in the land of their own birth. An idea totally incompatible with a government based on the consent of the governed.” read more

The Caravan Apocalypse

Guest post by John C. Velisek USN (Ret.)
for the Common Constitutionalist

The caravan of migrants continues to move toward our border. This massive mob of well-fed, well dressed, rested migrants will attempt to force their way across our border.

Progressive socialist Democrats will start whining about how these innocent migrants are so distressed, coming from countries that have treated them poorly. And celebrities will wring their hands and clutch their pearls over how poorly we are treating them.

It will not be mentioned that they are in fact economic refugees, looking for jobs and handouts to improve their lives, which is not an excuse for entering our country illegal, or even granting refugee status.

They will be here just in time for the midterms. Although the distance is far, the only time they actually walk is at the scheduled times when they know the cameras will be there. If you think about the distance already covered, you understand that they could not have possibly gotten this far without the flatbed tractor trailers and trucks that load them up and bring them closer. Mainstream media won’t mention this because it doesn’t fit the narrative that they wish to portray. read more

Are the Pipe Bombs a Legitimate Threat or a False Flag Event?

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Leftist media outlets from the New York Times to CNN and everyone in between are describing the recipients of these “pipe bombs” as Trump critics.

Gee – I wonder why that is? It must be that it’s the only thing they all have in common. Yeah, that must be it.

It harkens me back to the 2012 Aurora Colorado theater shooting, in which Brian Ross of ABC News jumped to the conclusion that the shooter, James Holmes, must have been a distraught ring wing Tea Party nut. Of course he was far from it, but the world view of leftist Ross clouded his ability for dispassionate reporting.

To be sure, all the ‘bomb’ recipients hate Trump. But they were also all wacky leftists before Trump took office. They were all power hungry control freaks prior to Trump being elected – still are. In fact, they all have numerous things in common – all bad.

But regardless of their animus toward Trump, they certainly don’t deserve to be terrorized by an explosive sent to them in the mail.

And the assumption is that that’s what happened. read more

Foreign Policy is about Substance and Deeds – Not Words

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Fareed Zakaria said on CNN Sunday that the United States should conduct foreign policy in accordance with its interests and values.

He was of course deriding Donald Trump’s style of foreign policy. And surprise, surprise, Fareed was critical of Trump’s handling of it.

He, like all other leftists, just can’t seem to wrap their collective pin-heads around the Trump way.

Zakaria says that, “America’s foreign policy should not be based on personalities. Donald Trump’s worldview seems utterly rooted in his likes and dislikes of other leaders – from Kim Jong Un to Angela Merkel to MBS [Mohammad bin Salman].”

In other words, from the left’s vacuous vantage point, Trump favors whom he appears to like and vice versa. read more

Civility has Left the Building

So is this the way it’s going to go?

For months, we on the right have been bemoaning the rhetoric and violence of the left. For months right wing media has pointed out the outrageous behavior of leftist politicians like Maxine Waters for encouraging and inciting violence.

We’ve endlessly illustrated her now infamous screech-fest recorded in late June, 2018, in which she said: “If you see anybody from the cabinet, in a restaurant, in department store, at a gasoline station – you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them.”

This, we on the right claim, is utterly unacceptable behavior in a civilized society. And we’re correct. It is utterly unacceptable behavior.

But they did what old Maxine asked of them. Mobs formed to confront conservatives and Republicans. And sorry to Brooke Baldwin of CNN for using the ‘m’ word. Recall she said “Oh, you’re not going to use the ‘mob’ word,” in reaction to fellow leftist and Daily Beast senior columnist Matt Lewis’s description of Ted Cruz being chased out of a restaurant. read more

Supreme Court to Hear Trump Appeal on Criminal Aliens

from the Daily Caller:

SUPREME COURT WEIGHS TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S POWER TO DETAIN CRIMINAL IMMIGRANTS

  • The Supreme Court is weighing the federal government’s power to detain migrants after they serve prison sentences.
  • Federal law allows the government to seize criminal migrants “when the alien is released” from custody.
  • Long stretches of time often elapse before the government learns a noncitizen was released from jail, in part due to sanctuary city policies.

The U.S. Supreme Court appeared closely divided Wednesday over the federal government’s power to detain criminal aliens after their release from prison. read more
