The Immigration Crackdown, or Crack-up?
Weekly Standard, by Tim Kane

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/18/2017 5:17:06 AM

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.

Judicial orders affecting the entire country should be made only by the Supreme Court not by a district court judge nor an appellate court.

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.

The judge in Hawaii had the 43 page ruling out in 2 hours after Pres. Trump´s announcement. So it´s obvious the ruling was already prepared.
That´s no way to run a court...not in America.

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.

Dirty Harry Reid’s Role in Obamagate
American Spectator, by George Neumayr    Original Article

Last October, Harry Reid, the ruthlessly partisan former senator from Nevada, wrote a nasty and bumptious letter to FBI director James Comey. The letter remains a significant piece of evidence in Obamagate, as it confirms his role as conduit for Obama administration’s political espionage against Trump. “In my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government,” he wrote. “The public has a right to know this information.

Like a bachelor before a date, the Obama administration rushed around during the transition hiding dirty laundry for the incoming administration. And now, almost 100 days in, the Trump team is still working to find and undo a handful of underreported bureaucratic messes left behind. The Obama administration was on cruise control before the election because almost everyone in the president’s circle was sure that Hillary Clinton would win. However, as reality set in, the president and his team rushed through a series of regulatory measures, leaving behind a a few dirty socks for the Trump administration to pick up. In fact,

Here’s why Rush survived pressure

Bill O’Reilly’s Fox News career now swims with the fishes. The conventional wisdom is that after the NY Times exposed a history of sexual harassment settlements, and two new accusers came forward, advertisers “fled” the show, forcing the hand of News Corp and the Murdochs. That conventional wisdom is only partially correct — advertisers didn’t flee, they were chased away by the same organized effort as was used against Glenn Beck once upon a time, and Rush Limbaugh in 2012. Longtime readers will recall my extensive and groundbreaking research into the StopRush operation just after Limbaugh’s comments about Sandra Fluke in 2012, for

Gayle King’s serious CBS colleagues had a lot to say about her recent yacht jaunt with former first couple Barack and Michelle Obama in Tahiti, and it wasn’t positive. “The ‘Capital J’ journalists are pi**ed and raving mad that she was on a yacht with the Obamas over the weekend.

The slaying of at least one police officer and the wounding of two others by an ISIS gunman in Paris on Thursday was yet another tragedy for France. It joins the long list of French atrocities committed by ISIS, from the Bataclan massacre in November 2015 to the truck rampage in Nice that killed 84 last summer. France is the perfect target for jihadists. It is an icon of Western pleasures, from the Champs-Élysées, where Thursday’s attack occurred, to the beaches of the Riviera and Nice. It has an aggressive foreign policy: contra the laugh-lines of congressmen from 2003, the French

Former Tennessee teacher Tad Cummins, who is accused of kidnapping his 15-year-old student, has been arrested in northern California after more than a month on the run, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. The student, Elizabeth Thomas, has been rescued, officials said. Authorities from Siskiyou County found them at a commune in Cecilville early Thursday morning. Cummins surrendered without incident and Elizabeth was safely recovered by law enforcement officers, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. Efforts to reunite Elizabeth with her family remain ongoing. “Our intelligence analysts and agents have worked tirelessly since issuing this AMBER Alert to

Look, Democrats, speaking sincerely as your friend, understand that everyone who says you need to take a deep look at yourselves is a racist, sexist, homophobe who won’t even ask about your preferred pronoun. Whatever you do, don’t you ever change.

Battles over religious liberty sometimes resemble a schoolyard brawl, with adversaries hurling childish taunts at one another and hulking bullies preying on smaller, weaker opponents — think of the Obama administration´s vicious and unrelenting attacks on the Little Sisters of the Poor. It´s appropriate, then, that an important religious liberty case now before the US Supreme Court should center arguments over funding for the resurfacing of a schoolyard playground. The Supreme Court heard oral arguments yesterday in Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia v. Comer. This story began in 2012, when the Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia, Mo, which operates daycare and pre-school facilities,




How To Survive An Angry Town Hall
Daily Caller, by David Benkof    Original Article

Republican members of Congress have grown increasingly wary of town hall meetings, which have become liberal rallies in districts nationwide, with hundreds of progressives denouncing conservative policies and chanting slogans like “Do Your Job!” It’s the Tea Party in reverse. Some GOP legislators have tried to regulate the events, with restrictions like ID checks and maximum sign sizes. Others have replaced them with sterile “electronic town halls” with pre-screened questions – and dozens have canceled them altogether. Being a representative under fire can be uncomfortable and messy, but so is democracy. There’s no magic formula for a successful town hall, but prudent members

For weeks, immigrant rights groups had searched for the right case to highlight their battle against President Trump’s get-tough immigration policy. They think they’ve found it this week in Juan Manuel Montes-Bojorquez, a Dreamer who went public with his story that he was deported despite having been approved under the Obama administration’s temporary amnesty. Top Democrats in Washington seized on the case, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi calling Mr. Montes outstanding and saying his deportation was a disgrace to American values. Sen. Richard J. Durbin, Illinois Democrat, demanded explanations, saying Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly had personally promised last

President Donald Trump’s repeated weekend jaunts away from Washington have caused nonstop headaches for his South Florida neighbors this winter. But once his exclusive seaside retreat at Mar-a-Lago closes for the season, Trump is expected to shift his weekend plans north, to his Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey — and bring with him all the chaos that comes with being a preferred presidential destination. “We’re kind of apprehensive, I guess you could say,” said Nick Strakhov, a retired telecommunications professional and longtime resident who serves on the Bedminster land use board. “It’s nice to be recognized.

Speaking to Variety magazine (she graces the cover in a white t-shirt, motorcycle jacket and a lot of Photoshop work), Clinton says she’s definitely not interested in running for office, but if she were, she’d have to contend with American voters who stubbornly refuse to acknowledge exactly how much she and her family have contributed to their lives.
