Shocker – Democrat Judge Donated to Committee Democrats

Now what do we think would be the reaction from the press and democrats if this were a judge appointed by a Republican president? That’s right – conflict of interest – recusal – recusal – recusal – constitutional crisis. Yet strangely, all we hear are crickets.

from Fox News:

Judge who upheld Trump subpoena donated to Dems on committee seeking the records

The New York federal judge who ruled on Wednesday that the Trump administration must comply with two subpoenas from the House Financial Services and Intelligence Committees has donated in the past to a slew of big-name Democrats — including two who currently sit on those committees, according to federal election filings.

After an hour of oral arguments, Barack Obama-appointed U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos ruled the subpoenas to Deutsche Bank and Capital One have “a legitimate legislative purpose,” and that Trump was unlikely to prevail in a lawsuit to quash the requests. Judges have the option to recuse themselves if there is an appearance of bias. read more

Once Upon a Time Director Comey was Independent

by: the Common Constitutionalist

“FBI Director James Comey’s famously independent streak is reportedly ruffling feathers at the White House on issues ranging from cybersecurity to rising crime rates — and the potentially explosive investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email server. The Republican, praised for standing up to the Bush administration over a warrantless wiretapping program in 2004, may be proving more than President Barack Obama bargained for,” wrote a hope-filled Newsmax in March of this year.

They added: “But he also understands the importance of maintaining his independence as a law enforcement agency that needs to give not just the appearance of independence but the reality of it.”

Well isn’t that nice. Let’s get back to reality, where, in 2013, director Comey was appointed by president Obama.

Don’t think for a moment all Obama’s appointees haven’t been thoroughly vetted. Obama and his inner circle know exactly who all his appointees are. So to say Obama was compromising when he decided to appoint a “republican” like Comey is absurd. To radicals like Obama, those kinds of compromises are meaningless and counterproductive. To radicals like him, it’s more important to advance the Marxist/Statist agenda than to gain points for looking bipartisan.

Which is why Obama has never and will never appoint anyone who is anything but liberal – and/or isn’t easily capable of being turned to the dark side. read more
