Democrats Sue Trump Over Sour Grapes

The dems will never be willing to accept the outcome of the 2016 election. The will never accept Trump as the President.

from the American Spectator:

Two hundred Congressional Democrats determined to take down the Trump presidency are suing in federal court, claiming the president is violating a provision of the U.S. Constitution. This lawsuit lays out the Democratic Party’s roadmap to impeachment.

Friday a federal judge gave the lawsuit the go- ahead. Democrats are suing based on the Constitution’s obscure “emoluments clause.” They’re intent on making “emoluments” a household word.

What’s an emolument, anyway? It’s a gift that could be used to bribe an official.

The Constitution bars U.S. officials from taking “any present, emolument,” title or job from foreign governments. “If discovered,” framer Edmund Randolph explained in 1788, the president “may be impeached.” The framers wanted to prevent bribery and influence buying. read more

Like John McCain – Jeff Flake’s Hatred for Trump Clouds his Judgment

Hatred and want for revenge may feel good at the time, but they are bereft of any reason and logic. And despite conventional wisdom, they are poor motivators. Yet still, these too irrational emotions continue to be the catalyst for a lot of what goes on in Washington. And RINO Senator Jeff Flake just proved it once again. His hatred for the president has allowed another week’s destruction of a good man and unfortunate family.

What’s Next for San Francisco to Ban?

San Francisco: The City of Bans

At times, it’s impossible to guess which things progressives want to ban — and which ones they want to mandate and subsidize. Think of New York City’s approach to electric bicycles. My guess would have been that the city would subsidize those environmentally friendly modes of transportation like other liberal cities do, given how much cleaner they are than taxis and buses. But until last April, officials there had viewed them as unsafe and intrusive and even had confiscated e-bikes from those caught riding them on the city’s streets and sidewalks. read more

Mueller and the Poison that is Washington

from The American Spectator:

The civil libertarians of the press — those card-carrying ACLU members who toss and turn at night worrying about the diminution of “privacy” — all rushed to the defense of the FBI after the release of its disgracefully flimsy FISA warrant on Carter Page. The hypocrisy of it all takes one’s breath away, as reporters and commentators, normally so censorious of privacy violations, coldly cheered the government’s harassment of Page. read more

Is Their Room in Congress for Another Clueless Socialist?

What are they teaching the students at Boston University?

from the American Spectator:

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the legacy media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally illiterate in economics, international relations, and history. read more

John Brennan – Communist Pot Calling the Kettle Black

from the American Spectator:

John Brennan’s anti-Trump tweets grow more and more maniacal. His latest tweet holds that Donald Trump’s Russian diplomacy in Helsinki “rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous.”

That tells people all they need to know about the unseriousness of the left’s impeachment drive, not to mention exposing once again the demented malice behind the Obama administration’s spying on the Trump campaign.

The unhinged criticism is also hilariously rich, given that John Brennan, who supported the Soviet-controlled American Communist Party, meets the textbook definition of a useful idiot for the Russians. read more

Deep State Strzok Testifies to Deep State

from The American Spectator:

The Peter Strzok hearing was a travesty, starting with the fact that he testified as a cocooned, lawyered-up government employee still working for the FBI. It is outrageous that he hasn’t been fired yet. He even still has a security clearance! That alone is proof of the deep state’s hold on certain executive branch agencies. If the FBI keeps its so-so employees close, it keeps its worst employees even closer. That Strzok could huddle with FBI lawyers while stonewalling a Republican-led committee speaks to the corruption of official Washington and the comparative impotence of Republican administrations. Does anybody think an FBI agent who had vowed to “stop” the candidacy of Barack Obama would have lasted a week at his job, let alone over a year, after the discovery of his bias? read more

Look for Dems to Go Low on Next Court Nominee

from the American Spectator:

Like sharks thrashing about in chum-filled bloody water, the unhinged hysterics of the progressive left have gone into a feeding frenzy as they prepare to attack whoever President Trump nominates to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. Thanks to Kennedy’s retirement, Trump is now in a position to appoint a non-activist, strict constructionist to the Court. Senate confirmation of the nominee will result in a solid, reliably conservative Court majority. read more
