Harvard Professor Alan Dershowitz Slams
ACLU As ‘Partisan, Hard-Left’ Group
That Doesn’t Care About Civil Liberties

Daily Caller, by Nick Givas

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/16/2018 4:33:36 PM

Harvard Professor and legal scholar Alan Dershowitz slammed the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) on “Fox & Friends” Monday for neglecting the fight for civil liberties and bowing to a political agenda.“If this were Hillary Clinton they’d be raising money left and right defending Hillary Clinton’s right,” Dershowitz said. “But now they’re raising money left and left, attacking Trump and putting the attack on Trump over defending our civil liberties. Why do you think I’m here all the time? Why do you think speaking in favor of man I voted against? Because the ACLU is dead in the water.” “Who

Did Alan just fall off a turnip truck that arrived from another planet?
The ACLU was formed as a Communist organization, and never changed.

Don´t be cynical about Dershowitz. He´s sounding more and more like many of us on this board who may have been classic, conscientious liberals but who at some point saw the light and have never looked back. And I´m beginning to see Turley make the same transformation.

Don´t slam them, welcome them. They are both brilliant, and we can sure use the help.

The hard left takes over every institution because they, unlike decent people, know that institutions run the world. So if they represent 10% of the people and run 100% of the institutions because they focus all their energy on taking them over, then they run 100% of everything. This is true whether you are talking about our schools, church denominations, the military, the Bar, the AMA, or yes, the ALCU.

Conservatives need to understand this and work to control institutions as well.

Professor Dershowitz is what i call an "honest Liberal". That is, he has liberal social and political beliefs; he is a strong supporter of Israel; but when he perceives something to be unjust or illegal, no matter who´s involved, he´ll be unequivocal about it and will explain his viewpoint/defense.

On Fox & Friends last summer he said he was losing weight on the FoxNews diet.

What´s that? You go on Fox, you don´t reflexively spew the Democrat/Left lines, you endeavor to reason according to the Law and the Constitution, and consequently your "liberal" friends don´t invite you to their cocktail and dinner parties any more.

The ACLU surely is not about Civil Liberties, but then the Southern Poverty Law Center is not about the South or poverty or law, either. Both are a long ways from their original purpose.

Why the ‘Resistance’ in the State
Department is a Gift to Trump
American Thinker, by Ishmael Jones    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 7/16/2018 6:12:52     Post Reply
President Trump’s diplomacy will continue to make America safe and strong, as long as he relies upon his own experience in negotiation and does not follow State Department guidance. The majority of our 75,382 State Department employees do not support our president. Many are openly scornful. Several ambassadors, ready to retire anyway and with full pensions locked in, have resigned dramatically.But because State Department protocols and diplomacy have failed us for decades – in Libya, Syria, with the creation of ISIS, Russian expansion, and North Korean belligerence – their “Resistance” has given President Trump the opportunity to do an end-run

Kevin Nicholson is a lifelong Democrat who finally woke up to the realities of today’s Democratic Party and joined the #WalkAway movement. He is now running as a first-time candidate in the Wisconsin Republican primary for U.S. Senate and his family is so furious they are supporting his incumbent opponent, Sen.

Democratic Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen on Monday called for the “military folks” to save America from President Donald Trump after Trump’s much-criticized press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup. (Tweet) Cohen later said that he was in no way calling for a coup. “No coup called for,” he wrote, claiming it unlikely that someone would call for a coup on Twitter. Cohen’s bizarre tweet was similar to one from former Obama CIA Director

Liberal filmmaker Rob Reiner’s Bush administration-bashing “Shock and Awe” was a disappointment during its debut weekend with an embarrassing box office intake. “Shock and Awe” grossed only $41,000 on its opening weekend after being shown in only 100 theaters, according to Box Office Mojo. “Shock and Awe” finished No. 34 overall, behind numerous movies that have already been in theaters for several weeks, according to the service. Reiner’s film lost to other movies that were played in a limited number of theaters, including “Eighth Grade,” which was shown in only four theaters but managed to gross $252,284, according to the site.

He described himself as a reporter for The Nation, according to reporters in Helsinki who were in the room. The Nation is a liberal-leaning leftist magazine based in the United States. (Video/Photos) But he was identified as Sam Husseini - the communications director of the Institute for Public Accuracy, a Washington D.C.-based nonprofit group that promotes progressive experts as sources for journalists.

President Donald Trump and President Vladimir Putin held a joint press conference Monday in Helsinki, Finland. The President brought up Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 missing emails, the DNC server and Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Pakistani IT staffer, Imran Awan. “What happened to the server? What happened to the servers of the Pakistani gentlemen that worked on the DNC. Where are those servers?” President Trump asked. “They’re missing. Where are they? What happened to Hillary Clinton’s emails? 33,000 emails gone!” Trump continued. To this day, the FBI has never done a forensic examination of the DNC server so we have no proof it

Ever wondered why you can´t stand Hillary Clinton? It´s not just her leftwing ideas. It´s because she manages, always, without fail, in her speeches to be hackneyed, grating and whining, too. And cripes, she´s still a liar. A good demagogue will take grains of truth and then twist them - Hillary is different: A purveyor of straight up 100-proof lies, painting an alternative reality. But quite a bit of it comes down to, in speaking for anyone who will listen (and of course, pay big dollars), she´s still tired. Her speech before the American Federation of Teachers, noted by Kyle

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen. When deciding which royals to include in the meeting, senior courtiers shared concerns about

At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person.

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad. Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted. Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of

Represented in Congress by Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and run for years by almost all Democrats, San Francisco should be a mecca for the left. But the city is fast becoming one of the worst places in the U.S. to live. The homeless problem is out of control. Experts say it “could exceed some of the dirtiest slums in the world.” There are around 7,500 homeless people in the city. Human feces is strewn across public areas. The NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit examined over 150 blocks of downtown San Francisco and found 96 blocks littered with feces. San Francisco’s new
