Donald Trump Evicted Elizabeth Warren
from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

Weekly Standard, by Ronald L. Rubin

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/3/2018 1:18:57 PM

Republicans’ first victory of 2018 will likely be Judge Timothy J. Kelly’s denial of the plaintiff’s motion for a preliminary injunction in English v. Trump following a hearing on the Friday before Christmas. The case began over Thanksgiving weekend when Richard Cordray, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s first director, promoted his chief of staff Leandra English to deputy director. The soon-to-be Ohio gubernatorial candidate then announced his resignation would take effect at the end of the day and declared English acting director until the Senate confirmed a new one. Two hours later, President Trump ignored Cordray’s self-serving misinterpretation of the Federal

His eviction of Elizabeth Warren from the CSFPB is one more reason to celebrate Trump´s presidency.

Now, the Republican Congress should remove the funding by the "profits of the Federal Reserve" by making another move to funnel those "profits" into some other program, thus, removing any profit to fund the CFPB which would close that agency.

Gosh! This could be a whole Episode on Scandal! Some of what I see on that show leaves me to wonder if it could really happen. Now, I´m thinking probably a lot of it is pretty close to the way things are in Washington! I´m thinking we have NO IDEA!!

Mueller’s Fruit of the Poisonous Tree.
Wall Street Journal, by David B. Rivkin Jr.*    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/23/2018 8:15:04     Post Reply
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation may face a serious legal obstacle: It is tainted by antecedent political bias. The June 14 report from Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department’s inspector general, unearthed a pattern of anti-Trump bias by high-ranking officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Some of their communications, the report says, were “not only indicative of a biased state of mind but imply a willingness to take action to impact a presidential candidate’s electoral prospects.” Although Mr. Horowitz could not definitively ascertain whether this bias “directly affected” specific FBI actions in the Hillary Clinton email investigation, it nonetheless affects

Just How Doomed Is Lupe Valdez?

Three days before she secured the Democratic nomination for governor on May 22, Guadalupe “Lupe” Valdez greeted a small crowd at the Blue Star Brewing Company, an upscale pub on the banks of the San Antonio River. A few months had passed since Valdez had traded in the blue uniform of Dallas County sheriff for business-casual campaign attire. Valdez glowed with pride as she worked the room. Almost everyone towered over her, but the mostly Hispanic audience appeared deferential. Valdez told her audience, including former San Antonio mayor Julián Castro, that she grew up just west of downtown, in one

America Lost Its Greatest Political
Commentator in Krauthammer

When you call someone the greatest at anything, you risk being accused of foolishness or worse; but it´s safe to say that Charles Krauthammer, who passed away Thursday, was the greatest political commentator of our time. I write this not just because he won the Pulitzer for commentary as a conservative, a near Herculean task. And I say this even though I sometimes disagreed with him, especially lately. Whom do we not disagree with at one time or another -- even ourselves? I write this because Krauthammer was the gold standard of columnists, the most incisive mind in political journalism augmented by

Federal authorities will no longer file criminal charges against migrant parents who cross into the United States illegally, a senior U.S. Customs and Border Protection official told The Washington Post on Thursday. The about-face comes just one day after President Trump signed an executive order ending his administration’s widely denounced practice of separating parents and children apprehended for illegally crossing the Mexico border. Trump’s order said the government would maintain a “zero tolerance” policy toward those who break the law, but the senior U.S. official, asked to explain how the government would

‘Future Pres’ Hillary —

Review the Clinton email scandal, the Steele dossier, the insertion of at least one FBI informant into the Trump campaign, the misleading of the FISA court by FBI and DOJ officials intent on monitoring U.S. citizens, and, now, the inspector general’s report. There emerges a common denominator: the surety by all involved that Hillary Clinton would be president, and the need to prepare for that fact. Examine the IG’s transcript of a random, pre-election series of electronic chitchat between high-ranking FBI employees: 15:07:41, Agent 1: “ . . .

WASHINGTON - Decrying “internment camps,” Democrats and their supporters disrupted a high-profile U.S. congressional hearing on Tuesday with a dramatic protest against the Trump administration’s policy of detaining immigrant children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. With the sound of a young child crying in the background, the top Democrat on the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, Jerrold Nadler, broke from traditional protocol and started reading from a statement, saying “these children are not animals.” His Republican colleagues tried to shout over him “Out of order!”

Growing Up With Steve Miller
Texas Monthly Magazine, by Max Marshall    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/17/2018 8:12:10     Post Reply
One night in the spring of 2007, when I was thirteen, my little brother and I cupped our hands to our upstairs hallway window, looked through the cigar smoke in our backyard, and tried to find Steve Miller. There was a grown-up party swirling around outside, but we couldn’t figure out which adult was the celebrity guest. We’d learned every Steve Miller Band classic rock hit from 93.3 The Bone, but we had no idea what the guy looked like. The albums we owned either had a painting of Pegasus or a man in a Joker mask on the cover,

Insubordination and Bias at FBI
Wall Street Journal, by Kimberley A. Strassel    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/15/2018 8:06:36     Post Reply
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s 500-page report covers plenty, but it can be distilled to two words he uses to describe the Federal Bureau of Investigation during the 2016 election: insubordination and bias. Two terms that are chilling in connection with such a powerful agency. That won’t be the message from Democrats and most of the press, who will focus on a few episodes they will claim cost Hillary Clinton an election. Watch for them to blame former FBI Director James Comey, whom the report faults for “a serious error of judgment,” for having “concealed information” from superiors, and for “violation of or

A key FBI investigator in the probes into Russian election meddling and Hillary Clinton’s email server wrote to his bureau colleague and lover that “we’ll stop” Donald Trump from becoming president. Inspector General Michael Horowitz on Thursday revealed the text message exchange between the agent, Peter Strzok, and FBI lawyer Lisa Page, in his report on the FBI’s and Justice Department’s probe into the bureau’s handling of the probe into Clinton’s emails, the Washington Post reported. “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” the lawyer, Lisa Page, wrote to Strzok. “No. No he won’t.

Rod Rosenstein, cult hero

Posted By: StormCnter- 6/14/2018 2:30:10     Post Reply
More than any federal agency or department I’ve worked for, with, or against, the Justice Department resembles a cult. Its employees think they are special. They feel intense hostility towards the Department’s adversaries. They are fiercely loyal to the Department and compulsively committed to its ways of doing things. Outsiders are viewed with condescension and suspicion, if not contempt. Obviously, many DOJ employees do not buy fully into the cult, but many do. Those who rise to the top tend to embrace it the most. This brings us to Rod Rosenstein, a career DOJ attorney who joined the department in 1990.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz faults then-FBI Director James Comey for being “insubordinate” and other FBI agents for sending anti-Trump text messages in his long-awaited review of the FBI and DOJ’s Hillary Clinton investigation during the 2016 presidential election. For more than a year, Horowitz has been reviewing the agencies’ actions related to its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. The report was released Thursday afternoon. Horowitz’s investigation looked at a variety of allegations, including whether it was improper for Comey to make a

Disruption Isn’t Enough
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 6/11/2018 9:33:23     Post Reply
Donald Trump has proved in 18 months that he can disrupt the global status quo, for better (Iran) and worse (trade). The question as he brawls with his G-7 allies after their annual summit and now meets with adversary Kim Jong Un is whether the President knows that disruption isn’t enough. Sooner or later he has to contribute to a better world order instead of merely blowing up the old one. Unlike most of the U.S.-Europe foreign-policy elite, we think the world needed some shaking up. Barack Obama saw America as an overstretched power that needed restraining for the world’s

Sarah Sanders was kicked out of a Virginia restaurant with her family on Friday night because the manager did not want to serve her following the backlash over Trump´s child migrant separation policy, it has been claimed. Jaike Foley-Schultz, a server at the Red Hen in Lexington, said the White House Press Secretary lasted just two minutes in the restaurant until his boss asked her to leave. ´I just served Sarah Huckabee Sanders for a total of 2 minutes before my owner kicked her out along with 7 of her other family members,´ he posted on Facebook.

Stephanie Wilkinson was at home Friday evening — nearly 200 miles from the White House — when the choice presented itself. Her phone rang about 8 p.m. It was the chef at the Red Hen, the tiny farm-to-table restaurant that she co-owned just off Main Street in Lexington, Va. Sarah Huckabee Sanders had just walked in and sat down, the chef informed her. “He said the staff is a little concerned. What should we do?” Wilkinson told The Washington Post. “I said I’d be down to see if it’s true.” It seemed unlikely to her that President Trump’s press secretary

The boycott-Trump movement has resurged. Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the #GrabYourWallet hashtag in October 2016 to encourage people seeking a way to take concrete action against Donald Trump to boycott companies — large and small — that do business with his family. As a result, brands such as Nordstrom, Jet.com, and Gilt dropped Ivanka Trump´s fashion line last year. While Coulter has remained steadfast in her quest to encourage the other 62 retailers, nonprofits, and even a movie produced by Harvey Weinstein to ditch Trump products, the issue has peaked once more among consumers and

Former Fox News contributor George Will says voters must punish Republican “poodles” during the midterm elections to “quarantine” the president. An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of

It´s come to this: according to some, people should be picking their casual dining choices based on their politics. NPR published an opinion piece by writer Monique Truong that claims in the headline that it is "hypocrisy" for administration members who support President Trump´s way of handling the long-ignored border crisis to eat at Mexican restaurants. These are people who work for the president, of course, so they are essentially being taken to task for doing their jobs.

Speaking days after a meeting with senior EU figures in Dublin, the globalist taoiseach (prime minister) committed to resettling a greater number of illegal immigrants stuck in Greece and Italy in Ireland than the batch of 4,000 already agreed.

President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday morning that the US should deport immigrants who enter the US illegally with no legal process. Trump said once "somebody comes in" the country, they should be removed with "no Judges or Court Cases" — a move that would violate the long-established legal precedent for immigrants´ rights to due process. (Snip) The US Constitution´s Fifth Amendment guarantees the right to "due process of law" in criminal proceedings. In 1953, the Supreme Court clarified this right extended to non-US citizens.

Three-year-old Yanela Denise became the unintentional face of the now defunct family separation crisis after photographer John Moore captured her agonized face screaming as her mother was questioned by agents on June 12.
