During his Thursday morning press conference once again summarizing the findings of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, when asked by a reporter why Mueller himself was not present, Attorney General William Barr explained that he wasn’t there because the report was written for the AG.

“It’s not [his report], it’s a report he did for me as the attorney general; he is required by the regulation to provide me with a confidential report,” Barr said. “I’m here to discuss my response to the report and my decision, entirely discretionary, to make it public.” read more

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

Trump Needs to Explain what Shutting Down the Border Really Means

from Conservative Review:

We can keep the ports open to commerce, secure our borders, and eat our avocados tooImage result for suspend all immigration

There is a difference between shutting down the border for commerce and suspending all immigration at our border.

The good news is that the media are finally admitting that the president has the authority to close the border. The bad news is that they are obfuscating the distinction between shutting off the entire border for commerce and suspending immigration requests at the border. The Trump administration would be wise to push back against it immediately and clarify this distinction.

The media is in full meltdown mode over Trump’s threat to “shut down” the border, as they predict doom and gloom for our economy, loss of jobs, and loss of revenue. We might even face an avocado shortage, according to the New York Times! Imagine that.

Never mind that the cost of one year’s border flow could add up to at least $150 billion for taxpayers. read more

Without the Second Amendment, We Would be New Zealand

This is just one more demonstration of the sheer genius of our Founders. They understood human nature as few have. And thank God for George Mason, Elbridge Gerry and the anti-Federalists, who insisted that a Bill of Rights be added to our Constitution, for without it, we would be in the same predicament as are law-abiding New Zealand gun owners.

from Conservative Review:

New Zealand’s knee-jerk gun ban is EXACTLY why we have the Second Amendment

Thank goodness we have the Second Amendment. I say that a lot, but I’m especially grateful after seeing the latest news out of New Zealand.

Less than a week after the mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand has moved to ban and confiscate semi-automatic long guns. 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

CAL COOLIDGE’S CRITICAL MESSAGE TO US

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Calvin Coolidge

Daniel Horowitz of Conservative Review encapsulated equality and our natural individual rights as Americans quite ingeniously – representing our rights by use of a bell curve metaphor.

Horowitz cited the great President Calvin Coolidge’s July 4, 1926, address honoring the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. I would invite and encourage everyone to make the time to read the transcript of Coolidge’s speech. It is brilliant, educational and enlightening.

Coolidge said: “About the Declaration there is a finality that is exceedingly restful. It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have had new thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern.” read more

On Spending – the Republicans are the Democrats

Fiscally speaking, we conservatives have for years been saying there’s not a dime’s difference between the two parties. Well, here’s further proof.

from Conservative Review:

The bipartisan spending binge is now worse than under Bush and Obama

We’re now $22 trillion in debt, yet despite all that red ink, the Mexican cartels have control of our border and we’re not one bit closer to spending money on our own security. We’ve gone into deep debt for everything except the core function of the federal government. read more

Enough Crying Over a National Emergency

Please – enough crying over the use of the National Emergencies Act. As you read this, keep in mind that are are no fewer than 31 “National Emergencies” that have been declared by various presidents over the years that are STILL in effect today. Of course no one who is opposed to Trump’s declaration will ever divulge this information.

There are no two people on this planet whom I’m trust more regarding the Constitution and what is constitutional than Mark Levin and Senator Mike Lee. Both of these constitutional heavy-weights say that the president is acting constitutionally by declaring this national emergency. That’s all I need to know. And another little secret is that each must renewed every year.

from the Conservative Review:

The mainstream media has begun its ritual of hysteria in response to President Trump’s intention to declare a national emergency on the southern border to appropriate military funding to build the wall. A headline from NBC News declares Trump is “forcing a constitutional crisis.” Even some Republican senators are saying the president shouldn’t declare a national emergency.

In a Facebook noteLevinTV host Mark Levin tears that argument apart: read more

The Death Of Three Equal Branches

SCOTUS’ Louisiana decision takes Roberts’ power play to a new level of aggression against the Constitution

Will the perfidy of Chief Justice John Roberts finally help conservatives slay their false idol of “appointing better judges” and actually fight against the entire notion of judicial supremacy instead?

I take no pride in seeing my thesis on the judiciary being proven correct every week, but once again we see that once we regard even lower courts as supreme to other branches on purely political questions, then simply “appointing better Supreme Court justices” will not matter. Much like drinking coffee with a fork, the more we accede to judicial supremacy, only using all our capital to get “our guys” on the high tribunal, the more we lose more of the existing members to the system. John Roberts has long ago become the new Anthony Kennedy, a fact that is now becoming obvious even to conservative court-worshippers. read more

Government Reopens – They Win – We Lose

from Conservative Review:

Trump announces short-term deal to reopen government with no wall funding. What’s his plan?

On Friday afternoon, President Donald Trump announced an agreement between Republicans and Democrats in Congress to temporarily reopen the government without funding for a border wall.

Trump said he would sign a continuing resolution to fund the government at current levels for a few weeks without the additional $5.7 billion he’s requested as a down payment to construct parts of the border wall. He alluded to the legal authority to declare a national emergency to build the wall without new appropriations from Congress but indicated that he will not take that action today. read more
