Trump’s words can be used against him in
suit to block DACA order, judge says

San Francisco Chronicle, by Bob Egelko

Posted By:poster, 1/12/2018 11:14:53 PM

The federal judge who blocked President Trump from eliminating a program that protects nearly 700,000 young immigrants from deportation issued a follow-up ruling Friday saying the lawsuits challenging the president’s order can seek to prove discrimination, based on Trump’s disparaging comments about Latinos. U.S. District Judge William Alsup of San Francisco issued a nationwide injunction Tuesday preserving the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, while suits against its repeal continue.

Claims of Discrimination DO NOT grant any greater claim of authority by the judicial branch over the Executive Branch in matters of Immigration.

That was decided long ago.

And DACA is illegal, anyway.

Judge Alsup "cited the presidential candidate’s charge in 2015 that Mexican immigrants are “drug dealers, rapists and killers,” his assertion during a Republican debate that the Mexican government was sending “the bad ones” to the U.S., and his description in August of undocumented immigrants as “animals.”

Odd that a federal judge would cite then candidate Trump´s 2015 comments on immigrants but not President Obama´s repeated statements that, as president, he lacked authority to give amnesty to Illegals (but did so anyway). Also disgusting that a federal judge is oblivious to fact that 40% of his state´s prison population is comprised of illegal aliens, with most of these heartless animals from Mexico.

I sure hope Sessions - assuming he is doing something for the DOJ - assembles a team to return the favor to these judges and nails them on a) ethics, b) professional misconduct, c) clips their pensions, and d) anything else to make these partisan judges´ life a living hell for their crossing over the line into activism by thwarting the Will of the Creators of the Federal Government - the Voters!

At a minimum, these judges going out of their way to insult Trump will steel his resolve to fill the vacancies with conservative judges. Beyond that, their continued over assertion of dictatorial power will wear out their credibility with the public, eventually emboldening Congress to clip their wings.

Alsup has ALREADY been castrated. The so-called judges pulling these stunts to draw attention at the risk of national security should be removed from the bench immediately. The President has the power to protect Americans, whatever it takes. If he doesn´t like it he can move to Mexico. Permanently.

One way to start fixing this problem is break up that whole district and create new ones.

It would allow for adding some of Trump´s new judges hopefully and that would be great in terms of neutering these overreaching judges.

Although judges should be cautious in considering campaign rhetoric as evidence of presidential motives, Alsup said, they need not disregard “clear-cut indications of racial prejudice on the campaign trail.”

In other words, watch out used car salesmen!

The democrat strategy of using the Judicial Branch to hobble the Executive Branch continues to work for them. Much of the blame lies with the lawyers who claim to revere the law but utter not a peep about this unconstitutional overreach because the decisions are going their way. Clearly, they are picking and choosing the aspects of the Constitution that they will defend which says a lot about their integrity or lack thereof.

Hearsay evidence, including statements made outside of court and not subject to cross-examination, are not admissable.
Courts have also ruled, again and again, that political statements made during a campaign are not to be assigned truthfulnness - that voters assume the statements to lack credibility..

I´m sure the judge will try that on for size but he is walking on very thin ice. One can only hope he falls through of his own weighty liberalism.

California lawmakers are targeting the expected windfall companies in the state would see under the federal tax overhaul with a bill that would require businesses to turn over half to the state. A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D -Sacramento and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle class families.

In a discovery that has stunned both authorities and neighbors in a suburban Riverside County neighborhood, 13 brothers and sisters who appeared to have been held captive by their parents in a Perris house were found early Sunday, Jan. 14, after one of them escaped and called 911. Some of them were chained and padlocked to their beds inside the dark and foul-smelling house in the 100 block of Muir Woods Road, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said. “The parents were unable to immediately provide a logical reason why their children were restrained in that manner,” sheriff’s officials said in a news

A federal judge on Wednesday denied an attempt by California to force the Trump administration to pay billions of dollars to insurance companies to subsidize health plans for low-income Americans. The payments, known as cost-sharing subsidies, were established under the Affordable Care Act to reimburse insurers for offering lower deductibles and co-payments for some consumers who buy health plans on the insurance exchange. The payments are one of two types of ACA subsidies that lower the cost of health care for millions of Americans; the other type helps consumers pay for insurance premiums.

With a name like Redneck Revolt, one “paramilitary” group named in a lawsuit filed in the wake of the deadly Charlottesville protests sounds like the classic alt-right, gun-toting militia many blame for the August incident that sparked a national debate on race and guns. But Redneck Revolt is a sometimes-armed militia that left-wing protesters have apparently started calling on for security, and critics say it represents a growing group of heat-packing, far-left social justice warriors who are “willing to take on personal risk to defend those in our community,” according to the group’s website.

President Trump’s job approval rating has rebounded from its lows, as voters approve of the government’s response to a series of devastating hurricanes and the White House’s efforts to work with Democrats. The latest Harvard-Harris survey found 45 percent of voters approve of the job Trump is doing, compared to 55 percent who disapprove. That´s up from 43 percent last month, which marked the low point for Trump in the survey. The 45 percent approval rating in the Harvard-Harris poll is higher than most other polls. The president is at 41.3 percent in the RealClearPolitics average.

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade.

It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party.

Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents.

You’ve got to feel for Robert Mueller. The man overseeing the special investigation into Russian election meddling is by all accounts a non-partisan straight shooter, the model image of a public-minded civil servant. Drafted to lead politically polarizing investigation, working under the beady eyes of distrustful congressional Republicans, Mueller has striven to keep his team’s conduct as unimpeachable as possible by bringing on some of America’s sharpest legal minds to check his own work and keeping public comments to a minimum.

Assemblymen Kevin McCarty and Phil Ting, both Democrats, introduced Assembly Constitutional Amendment 22, which calls for a 10 percent surcharge on companies with a net earnings over $1 million. The plan could potentially raise billions for the state´s social services programs. “It is unconscionable to force working families to pay the price for tax breaks and loopholes benefiting corporations and wealthy individuals,” Ting said in a statement,

"We will vote today to reopen the government to continue negotiating a global agreement," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the floor. Under the bill up to be called up, the government would be fully funded through Feb. 8, and it would fund the Children´s Health Insurance Program for six years.

That moment occurred during Kelly´s third episode when she asked the Oscar-winner about what work she had done in the past, which prompted a steely Fonda to stare Kelly down and ask: ´We really want to talk about that now?´ Since then Fonda has complained about the question to a number of outlets, and even mocked Kelly´s question on Today last week during an interview

Congressional investigators believe they are barely beginning to answer the questions raised by the text messages between the FBI´s Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. For several reasons: 1) Strzok and Page were more prolific texters than anyone knew. In a statement late Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said FBI investigators have found "over 50,000 texts" in their review of Strzok-Page communications. 2) Even with all those texts, the FBI says it cannot find the couple´s messages between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017 — a critical time in the Trump-Russia affair.
