Roberts said Wednesday the U.S. doesn’t have “Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges.” He commented in a statement released by the Supreme Court after a query by The Associated Press. Roberts said on the day before University refuses campus Chick-Fil-A after admin poll revealed it was students’ top choice Wed, 21 11 2018 06:11:35 GMT 4bab54f2f810359317a3faa1676f5e4ea9225481 BizPac Review*, by Joshua Aminov Posted By: JoniTx- Wed, 21 11 2018 06:11:35 GMT Rider University in New Jersey sent a survey to students during the spring semester, asking them which restaurants they would like to see the school bring on campus. But when it became clear that Chick-Fil-A was the students’ top choice, the college disregarded the results of the survey. The school will not bring the popular fast food chain to campus because “their corporate values have not sufficiently progressed enough to align with those of Rider,” according to a Nov. 1 email sent to Rider students and obtained by Campus Reform. The school went on to clarify that the decision was Border troops authorized to use force, detain illegal immigrants: Report Wed, 21 59 2018 05:59:42 GMT db870228e0b35f82ea42fbd7bd88ad9aba1c024f Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan Posted By: JoniTx- Wed, 21 59 2018 05:59:42 GMT The White House has signed a memo granting the troops stationed at the border authority to engage in some law enforcement and to use lethal force if they are in danger, according to a report in Military Times. White House Chief of Staff John Kelly signed the memo, which allows troops to assist the Border Patrol in crowd control and even detaining illegal immigrants, the paper reported. The memo appears to make good on President Trump’s insistence that the military play a more active role in preventing the migrant caravans from overrunning the U.S. border, as they did a month House Democrats Don´t Know What to Make of Alexandria Ocasio'Cortez Wed, 21 51 2018 05:51:22 GMT 17a5689615ad90bcd6e8e0526d4e2c4bff4f8cd6 Atlantic, by Elaine Godfrey Posted By: NorthernDog- Wed, 21 51 2018 05:51:22 GMT She came into Washington like a wrecking ball. Just on Saturday, Alexandria Ocasio'Cortez announced that she will be working with progressive activists to bring primary challenges against some of the more conservative Democrats in Congress, her own soon'to'be colleagues. (Snip) There are, in other words, several early indications that Ocasio'Cortez will do things differently from the typical legislator, acting as a bomb'thrower and agitator in the People’s House. It’s something her supporters want very much—and something many of her Democratic colleagues aren’t sure how to feel about.

There have now been 106 confirmed cases of AFM in 29 states this year, according to the CDC, an increase of 16 since last week. There are also 167 possible cases of the illness, an increase of five from the previous week. Since 2014, there have been 430 confirmed cases of the rare disease, and 90% have been children, according to the CDC.

Dependera Pathak, director'general of police on India’s Andaman and Nicobar Islands, said seven fishermen have been arrested for helping the American visit North Sentinel Island, where the killing occurred.(Snip)The Sentinelese people on the small forested island are known to resist contacts with outsiders, often attacking anyone who comes near. Pathak identified the American as John Allen Chau and said he earlier described himself at a hotel as 26 years old and from Alabama. Thanksgiving Must Be Abolished Wed, 21 23 2018 05:23:38 GMT 12d7d676a0b52d6b2d8fee1e8c534be4c5ef2edb Daily Wire, by Matt Walsh Posted By: JoniTx- Wed, 21 23 2018 05:23:38 GMT Around this time every year we are treated to multiple news articles explaining how we ought to deal with our racist conservative relatives at Thanksgiving. These articles, in my opinion, miss the point entirely. We shouldn’t be dealing with our racist conservative relatives at Thanksgiving dinner at all because we shouldn’t be having a Thanksgiving dinner in the first place. Thanksgiving is a patriarchal ritual in which white men and their subjugated marital slaves commemorate the mass execution of Indigenous People by consuming the living flesh of innocent animals.

A major, multipart New York Times´ exposé charges that senior executives of the social media platform, previously in hot water over charges of censoring conservative content and the Cambridge Analytica data scandal, used a pattern of "delay, deny and deflect" to "conceal" that its "power could … be exploited to disrupt elections, broadcast viral propaganda and inspire deadly campaigns of hate around the globe." Yikes. Law banning female genital mutilation ruled unconstitutional; Michigan doctors cleared of charges Wed, 21 39 2018 04:39:46 GMT d8fcfe3ade2294a6855b03068c388fc29ea2bdfa Fox News, by Lukas Mikelionis Posted By: Pete Stone- Wed, 21 39 2018 04:39:46 GMT A federal judge on Tuesday ruled that the U.S. law banning female genital mutilation was unconstitutional and dismissed charges against several doctors in Michigan who carried out the procedure on underage girls as part (sic) Muslim sect’s religious practice. U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman ruled that Congress had no authority to enact a law that criminalizes female genital mutilation (FGM). “As despicable as [FGM] may be… [Congress] overstepped its bounds” by banning the procedure, the judge said. The ruling came after defense lawyers challenged the 22'year'old genital mutilation law that hasn’t been used until 2017 when Dr. Jumana Judge Tigar Strikes Again Wed, 21 19 2018 04:19:50 GMT 2d4a498ccd07e9d7bc4954c02235a257373e218b American Greatness, by Robert Curry Posted By: earlybird- Wed, 21 19 2018 04:19:50 GMT Judge Jon S. Tigar is back in the news. I wrote about him nearly two years ago: A federal judge ruled recently that an inmate serving a life sentence for murder in California must receive sex'reassignment surgery at taxpayer expense. The inmate was Rodney James Quine, 57, twice married and the father of two daughters. I write “was” because while in prison he changed his name to Shiloh Heavenly Quine. Quine began living as a woman in 2008, when prison officials authorized hormone treatments at taxpayer expense. Quine then began pushing for a sex change operation, to be paid Get Ready for High Gear Compartmentalization Wed, 21 53 2018 03:53:02 GMT 3dee153f87b76396a3c57f2d2d950dd86d0fb0fa American Greatness, by Conrad Black Posted By: earlybird- Wed, 21 53 2018 03:53:02 GMT The controversy over acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker is the inane death rattle of the Democratic addiction to the idea, pushed by the 90 percent'hostile press, that President Trump must remain handcuffed to an endless special counsel inquiry. This conviction persists, despite Robert Mueller’s failure—and the failure of his Justice Department predecessors—to turn up any reason for their investigations in two years’ worth of frenzied efforts to find something damaging about Trump. Astounding fatuities abound at the U.S. Capitol. Departing senator Jeff Flake, as he finally takes his permanent imitation of a righteous chipmunk back to Arizona, portentously Obama gets ugly Wed, 21 36 2018 03:36:32 GMT e17291254a6a649173b583f85ed399ef90d8e583, by Don Surber Posted By: earlybird- Wed, 21 36 2018 03:36:32 GMT Obama showed his true self in comments about President Donald John Trump on Monday. It was not pleasant. Unable to articulate a reasoned argument using facts, Obama attacked the president in a manner that if it were the other way around would be deemed racist. Maybe it is. Obama said, “The reason we don´t [invest in climate change policies] is because we are still confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism — mommy issues.” Report: U.S. Attorney John Huber Expected To Testify to House Oversight Subcommittee December 5th… Wed, 21 25 2018 03:25:32 GMT 2d383d6d268b414b56f1b95900a605385586ca5e Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance Posted By: earlybird- Wed, 21 25 2018 03:25:32 GMT Interesting report from The Hill today quoting an interview with Representative Mark Meadows. According to the report U.S. Attorney John Huber is expected to testify to the House Subcommittee on Oversight and Reform about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation. (Via The Hill) Rep. Mark Meadows (R'N.C.) said Tuesday that House Republicans plan to hear testimony on Dec. 5 from the prosecutor appointed by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to probe alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation.

But if you turned on 24'hour cable news, before getting an update on the worst fire in the state’s history, you likely had to sit through the latest breakdown on the House races, the recount of the elections in Florida, more hints on special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election Liberals´ infantile Beto fantasy Wed, 21 11 2018 03:11:06 GMT f27c1b7140209d6ca470ff6b42c0c36ddc7ab0de The Week, by Matthew Walther Posted By: garnet- Wed, 21 11 2018 03:11:06 GMT I have offended some liberals in the past by referring to Robert Francis "Beto" O´Rourke as a "failson." I understand now why this might have come across as dismissive of his totally awesome campaign to skateboard his way into a Senate seat. So in the future I will be more measured in my language. Beto is not a "failson." He is, in fact, the successful son'in'law of a billionaire real estate developer whose low'key contempt for barrio grandmas puts him squarely within the mainstream of the Democratic Party. Georgia Businesses Are Victims of Abrams´ Sour Grapes Wed, 21 08 2018 03:08:19 GMT 17d0b6a64c5bbddec033e9d574ffbc57dbc84e41 Real Clear Politics, by Bernie Marcus Posted By: garnet- Wed, 21 08 2018 03:08:19 GMT Georgia´s film industry'related small businesses are about to experience the bitter taste of Stacey Abrams´ sour grapes. After 10 days of casting doubt and aspersions on Georgia´s election results, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate offered a no concession'concession this week. “Let’s be clear: This is not a speech of concession,” Abrams said in formally ending her campaign against Republican Gov.'elect Brian Kemp. “Because concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true or proper. As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that.” Abrams also announced she would be filing a federal lawsuit to challenge Georgia´s election system.

The pricey goodies, including Nintendo games and American Girl dolls, were delivered to Reich­berg’s co'defendant, former NYPD Deputy Inspector James Grant, as well as retired cop Eric Rodriguez and already'convicted ex'Deputy Chief Michael Harrington, Rechnitz testified in Manhattan federal court.

They´re telling the press they´re set to illegally enter the U.S. because the penalty for entering illegally is now off, thanks to the Ninth Circuit´s lefty Judge Jon S. Tigar. It´s just as I suspected would happen yesterday, because people know an incentive when they see one. According to the Associated Press: TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) — Migrants Trump Doesn´t Need Congress to Achieve His Immigration Goals Wed, 21 36 2018 02:36:22 GMT 9e44c46b829f1cd437ef010ad16e197e5a7b54ff American Thinker, by Christopher J. Hajec Posted By: JoniTx- Wed, 21 36 2018 02:36:22 GMT Now that the Democrats have won control of the House of Representatives (barely) it appears a near'certainty that President Trump will be unable to get anything done in Congress on immigration – no congressional funding for the wall, no statute ending chain migration or the visa lottery, no bill for him to sign adjusting downward the current, one million'per year'plus rate of legal immigration – in the next two years. Of course, he wasn’t able to get any of that in the last two years, either, even though Republicans controlled both houses of Congress.

(snip) I am sorry but this sounds like a stoner. "We could have electricity and smartphones and all that stuff which would buy us probably another 20, 30 years for that technological breakthrough that´s necessary," Obama continued. "The reason we don´t do it is because we are still confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism, mommy issues." I am pretty sure that we already have electricity and smartphones When Muslims Rape European White Women, Whose Fault Is It?

Such is the latest position – the latest apologia – being offered by those dedicated to exonerating undesirable Muslim behavior, particularly in the context of accepting more Muslim migrants into the West. (snip) Bernhard Rotzinger, the police chief of Freiburg, responded by saying, "We cannot offer citizens an all-risk insurance [against crime], but I can advise this: Don´t make yourself vulnerable by using alcohol or drugs."

Trey Gowdy, R'S.C., sent a letter to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly demanding information on Ivanka Trump’s reported use of personal email. The letter, obtained by the Hill, follows the Washington Post report claiming that Trump sent hundreds of emails about White House business to contact “White House aides, Cabinet officials and her assistant," an apparent violation of the Presidential Record Act. The report does not indicate if the emails contained any classified or sensitive government information.
