Federal judges who are blocking President´s Trump new executive order restricting migration are making a mistake, using flawed reasoning, and setting back the larger cause of immigration reform. On Wednesday night, Derrick K. Watson, the U.S. District Judge in Hawaii, penned a 43-page jeremiad in the form of a legal ruling that freezes what he and others are calling a ban on Muslims. The next morning, Judge Theodore Chuang, a federal district judge in Maryland, issued a second ruling blocking what he called "the realization of the long-envisioned Muslim ban." These judges are wrong, and they are going to lose on
FTA: " The executive branch has sole authority on refugees, and Judges Watson and Chuang are way out of line."
When a ruling is made that clearly is in direct opposition to the Constitution, we need a process to overturn it quickly especially when national security is at risk. The long drawn out process that will ultimately settle the matter is problematic because it puts Americans at risk while this issue works its way through the courts.
This whole rigamarole is politically motivated driven by the left´s inability to accept the will of the people. Obama´s fingerprints are all over this. He fears that Trump is going to completely overshadow him and expose his rank incompetence. He and ValJar believe they can continue to direct the course they had set for this country from their bunker in DC. I believe President Trump has other ideas. There is a battle going on behind the scenes in Washington DC the likes of which we have never seen before and the forces of good must win this one. Everything is on the line. Pray for the safety and wisdom of President Trump and his entire administration. The hounds of Hades are nipping at their heels.
The thing I don´t get about this whole immigration situation is how all these foreigners keep getting US constitutional rights protection. The president has an absolute right to deny entry into this country if he thinks those people are any kind of threat.I can´t believe people that are saying the ban hurts tourism in certain areas.Every person that gets on an airplane is assumed to be guilty of carrying a bomb on them.4th amendment rights are suspended because of this on real citizens.Yet we can´t stop possible real terrorists from our shores to begin with.Immigrants are breaking this country´s back cost wise all because the left is obsessed with new voting blocs.
This is more than immigration or separation of powers. These judges are doing exactly what the marchers with indecent headgear and the violent rioters in Berkeley were doing. Trying to overthrow the free will of the American people expressed through 306 Electoral votes. No quarter or compromise should be shown to these vermin.
Well there are over 600 federal judges all over the USA. The invented concept that any one of them, or many of them for differing reasons in behalf of aliens, can issue a restraining order against the President when he issues an order based upon national security grounds in accordance with his constitutional and statutory authorities is crazy and is ripe for reform. As an example what if the USA came under sudden attack from a foreign entity, the President then issued an order relating to national security, and a federal judge immediately issued a restraining order against the President until the judge determined if the foreign entity or the President was in the right?
What has happened over the last eight years, the liberal Democrats for political purposes, including bumping up Democrat foreign born voter rolls, now and on into the future, have refused to protect the borders and the immigration laws. The liberal Democrats and their allied special interests have invented so-called Sanctuary Cities to protect illegal aliens, thus politicizing and making immigration a racial issue, along with inventing new "rights" for aliens that are not grounded in the US Constitution or the immigration laws.
The latest ruling by the liberal Democrat activist judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Hawaii, goes so far as to exclaim that aliens all over the world have a Constitutional "right" to enter the USA and that President Trump has no authority to keep them out on national security grounds especially if they are Muslims as doing so would violate the Constitution. That´s just liberal Democrat political boloney.
Washington- A major threat to the predominance of the Kultursmog in these United States passed away last week, but he had succeeded in what he set out to do, namely to damage the left in America beyond any hope of recovery. Not many people recognize this, but it is nonetheless true. Possibly it will take years before this realization becomes apparent to all, but for now we discerning minds understand what has happened. Broadcasting will never be the same after Roger Ailes, the begetter of Fox News on cable, died last week. He alone made it happen. He challenged the Kultursmog.
I admit to being slack-jawed over the New York Times report that President Trump smeared former FBI director James Comey in a conversation with representatives of Russia’s murderous, anti-American regime. The account, based on notes taken at the meeting and leaked to the Times, has implicitly been confirmed in a near-equally repugnant statement by the White House press secretary. Inexplicably, Trump chose to host Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov and ambassador Sergey Kislyak the day after he fired Comey in a maze of conflicting explanations (when none, by the way, was required). Naturally, this further fueled the Trump-Russia conspiracy narrative.
At around 3 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, President Donald Trump landed in Saudi Arabia on his first foreign trip—a five-stop progress through the Middle East, Italy and Belgium. The aircraft touched down at about 10 a.m. local time. Emerging from Air Force One, Trump and First Lady Melania descended the stairs to a wide red carpet. Saudi Arabian King Salman, 81, greeted Trump at the base of the stairs, extending his hand toward the U.S. president. Some pundits questioned whether Salman would shake Trump´s hand or even brave the sweltering heat to walk out onto the runway, citing his older age.
It’s coming from inside the house. Throughout Trump’s presidency and increasingly in the past few weeks, leaks from staff members to the press are undermining the president. The New York Times reported Friday exact details of Trump’s meeting last week with Russian officials. The report cited a document read to them by an “American official,” which summarized the meeting. “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Trump said, according to the report. The president then added, “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.” The White House did not dispute this account. Shortly

Robert Mueller´s investigation will be incomplete if he does not deal with and resolve the competing narratives about what has transpired. Narrative one is that Donald Trump and/or one or several of his entourage colluded in some manner with the Russians over election 2016. Narrative two is that Democrats and much of the media have not accepted the results of the election and are smearing Trump to drive him from office or seriously wound him to the degree that he will accomplish nothing. Although it is possible there is an element of truth in both narratives, it is more likely that
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein just did Donald Trump a favor. It may not look like that from the perspective of the president. His Twitter feed is filled with eruptions about the fraudulence of the Russia investigation. But by appointing the former FBI director Robert Mueller to investigate the matter, Rosenstein has quieted a crisis that was consuming Trump´s presidency. The storm has been gathering for more than a week. It started when Trump impetuously fired the FBI director, James Comey, claiming at first that he did so on the advice of Rosenstein. Then the president changed his story and
Now anything goes. All restraints are loosened, all self-discipline trashed. There’s no cure or even treatment for Trump Derangement Syndrome, a disease as wild and as swiftly lethal as anything imported from the Ebola River valley of the dark continent. The rules and taboos that once guided even the sleaziest excuse for a newspaper no longer apply. Destroying Donald Trump is all that matters in the newsrooms of the mainstream media, so called, and by any means necessary. Rarely have so many hysterics contributed so much of the national conversation. A columnist in The New York Times, ground zero in the epidemic
Eli Lake is right: The DOJ’s appointment of widely-respected former prosecutor Robert Mueller to lead the special inquiry into the Trump campaign’s potential collusion with Russia is a reprieve for a Trump Administration in crisis—a reprieve that it will almost certainly squander, but a reprieve nonetheless. How do we know? Because the responses from Trump’s most dogged critics on the Russia question betray a kind of anxiety about the Mueller appointment—an anxiety that the no-nonsense law enforcement wise man will lower the temperature in Washington without actually uncovering enough damaging material to bring down the President.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), along with her colleague Al Green (D-TX), is a leader of the impeach-Trump movement. But in 1998, Waters called impeachment a "coup d´etat." And she wasn´t just upset about because she thought Bill Clinton was not guilty, she was upset at the use of the institution of impeachment. She called it an "unapologetic disregard for the voice of the people" and an "abuse of power in the collecting of so-called ´evidence´ and the denial of the presumption of innocence." But isn´t this exactly what she´s proposing doing to President Trump?
It may be too soon to tell whether Donald Trump’s presidency will survive his disclosure to the Russian foreign minister of a piece of US intelligence. But it’s not too soon to celebrate the sudden outbreak in our Democratic press of concern for our national secrets. This occurred over what The Washington Post and The New York Times suggest was President Trump’s inadvertent disclosure of highly classified intelligence from Israel in the Oval Office when Trump received Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. The disclosure, the Times quoted American officials as representing, “could expose the source of the information and the manner in
President Trump departs later this week on his first trip abroad since taking office. It is a trip with five stops including Riyadh, Jerusalem, Rome, Brussels and Sicily. The stops in Europe involve meetings with Pope Francis at the Vatican, with our NATO partners in Brussels and with the leaders of the G7 countries in Sicily. This afternoon the White House invited journalists to join a conference call with a Senior Administration Official (hereinafter SAO) speaking on background. He briefly previewed the trip and took questions. I just got off the call. SAO described the trip as ambitious and historic. He
It´s not earth-shattering news that Congress has been, on balance, the least respected branch of government for the last several decades. Reason: They don´t do their job. They bloviate, they posture, they investigate, they hold hearings, they appear on cable news, they raise funds from wealthy constituents and go on junkets, they threaten to turn out the lights if they don´t get their way, but only rarely do they pass laws for the betterment of our country. No wonder the people are fed up. But now Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has done them a huge favor and given them
Climate change” and “child marriage” are “interconnected” issues, said Chelsea Clinton on Monday. Participating in a left-wing discussion panel framed as a meeting for “social justice,” she was introduced as an “activist, thought leader, and change agent.” Using "climate change" as a euphemism for the narrative of anthropogenic global warming, Clinton framed the burning of fossil fuels as exacerbating other perceived social and political issues (emphasis added): “[We] carry multiple concerns in both our head and our heart. Just listening to the concerns around education and climate change, women’s health, child marriage, access to technology, all of those are of
Michelle Obama has been enjoying her Italian vacation in style—and got a welcome fit for a star as she and her husband visited the city of Siena, Tuscany today. The former First Lady looked especially glamorous as she stepped out in a flirty shoulder-baring top, paired with a high-waisted khaki-colored pants. Her husband, who previously went out for a scenic bike ride in the countryside, had ditched his sporty outfit for a polished shirt and pants. A massive crowd cheered after spotting the former presidential couple, with some fans yelling: ´President Obama!´ Scroll down for video The pair, who arrived in Italy Friday
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted President Trump´s budget on Tuesday, calling the overall proposal "dead on arrival." “President Trump’s $603 billion defense budget request is inadequate to the challenges we face, illegal under current law, and part of an overall budget proposal that is dead on arrival in Congress," McCain, a frequent critic of the president, said in a statement. The Trump administration on Tuesday unveiled a budget that would shift $54 billion from nondefense to defense spending for fiscal year 2018. That´s roughly $19 billion more than former President Barack Obama´s last plan. McCain added that Trump´s budget proposal
Fox News staffers are growing increasingly dismayed as network star Sean Hannity and others continue to promote the unfounded conspiracy theory that Seth Rich, a Democratic National Committee staffer was murdered last year for talking to WikiLeaks. The Daily Beast spoke to nearly a dozen reporters, pundits, and hosts inside Fox News who all conveyed the same sentiment: Hannity is “embarrassing” the network, and the promotion of the Rich conspiracy theory is senselessly cruel to a grieving family. “ARE WE STILL AIRING THAT SH*T?!” one Fox News political reporter, who says they are furious that the conservative cable-news giant is
Following the death of former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes last week, tributes were offered in print and on air both from likely, and perhaps unlikely, sources. But in the opening paragraph of a New York Times op-ed out Monday, Monica Lewinsky said that she did not plan to have her piece serve as another Ailes obituary. “It is, I hope, instead an obituary for the culture he purveyed — a culture that affected me profoundly and personally,” Lewinsky wrote. Calling it a “culture of exploitation,” Lewinsky blasted the environment at Fox News and other cable news outlets — where
A University of Hawaii assistant math professor who holds a PhD degree in mathematics from Princeton University has a new racist equation she wants to promote: white + man + job = her order for white males to quit or be demoted. Piper Harron wrote on a blog for the American Mathematical Society (AMS), titling her piece, “Get Out The Way.” Harron began with her demand: Not to alarm you, but I probably want you to quit your job, or at least take a demotion. Statistically speaking, you are probably taking up room that should go to someone else.
Former late-night television host David Letterman eviscerated President Trump in a rare interview, calling the president a “goon” who lacks any core principles. The 70-year-old comedian told GQ magazine in its upcoming June issue that while he has “no reason” to regret hosting Mr. Trump multiple times on “Late Night,” he is very “disappointed” that his former guest is now representing the country. “It makes me sick,” Mr. Letterman said. “But we always looked forward to having him on. He was a great guest. He was just a big, wealthy dope who’d come on and we would make fun of
Fox News dolt, Juan Williams praised the people in government who are leaking to the media in order to damage the Trump administration. He also told the leakers to call him because leakers are ‘good for democracy’. (Snip) Juan Williams: “Just give me a moment here to say if you have a leak please call me at FOX News. I’m all for leakers. I think leakers are good to contribute to democracy. I don’t think trying to undermine government but I don’t think we condemned Obama for going harshly against people who were disclosing information acting as if they were
Former FBI Director James Comey´s father says his son was fired because President Trump was "scared to death of him," according to CNN. J. Brien Comey spoke to CNN by phone on Saturday about his son´s dismissal as the nation´s top law enforcement officer. "[Comey] didn´t give him 100 percent loyalty, and he demands that of people who work with him," he said, according to CNN. "[Comey] said he would give 100 percent honesty, but not loyalty." "Why he was fired, I think, is Trump changes every day," he added. "He had three reasons three days in a row." Comey´s
The brother of slain Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich wrote a letter on Tuesday to the executive producer of Sean Hannity´s Fox News show pleading with him to find "decency and kindness" in his heart and stop spreading an unproven conspiracy theory about the unsolved murder. "Think about how you would feel losing a son or brother. And while dealing with this, you had baseless accusations of your lost family member being part of a vast conspiracy," Aaron Rich wrote in the letter to "Hannity" executive producer Porter Berry, a copy of which was provided to CNN. "As the family, we
CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Monday praised President Trump´s weekend speech in Saudi Arabia, saying former President Obama could have given it. “It was nuanced. It was frankly the kind of speech that President Obama could have given. It had the kind of empathy and nuance that people look for," Zakaria said Monday on CNN, praising "both the symbolism and ... the substance." “Because ultimately what you’re trying to do is convince these Muslim countries to in some way take on, battle, expel as President Trump said, the scourge of Islamic terrorism.” Zakaria added that Trump’s remarks pleased Arab leaders by sounding “more
The National Security Agency under former President Barack Obama routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall, according to once top-secret documents that chronicle some of the most serious constitutional abuses to date by the U.S. intelligence community. (Snip) The Obama administration self-disclosed the problems at a closed-door hearing Oct. 26 before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that set off alarm. Trump was elected less than two weeks later. The normally supportive court censured administration officials, saying
