Obama now calls open-borders immigration policy ‘unsustainable’ as Biden’s ‘heartbreaking’ migrant crisis worsens

Former President Barack Obama — who routinely pushed for open-borders immigration policies during his time in office — acknowledged recently that such an idea is “unsustainable.” Obama made the statement while commenting on the Biden administration’s ongoing immigration crisis at the U.S. southern border during an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America,” which aired Tuesday.

“Immigration is tough. It always has been because, on the one hand, I think we are naturally a people that wants to help others. And we see tragedy and hardship and families that are desperately trying to get here so that their kids are safe, and they’re in some cases fleeing violence or catastrophe,” Obama said.

“At the same time, we’re a nation-state. We have borders. The idea that we can just have open borders is something that … as a practical matter, is unsustainable,” he added.

Elsewhere in the interview, the former president called the scenes playing out along the border in Del Rio, Texas, “heartbreaking” and “a painful reminder that we don’t have this right yet and we’ve got more work to do.”

Nearly 15,000 migrants, the majority of whom are Haitian, reportedly camped under a bridge in squalid conditions in Del Rio amid a surge in border crossings in recent weeks. On Sunday, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admitted that rather than repatriating the migrants as promised, the Biden administration had, in fact, released roughly 12,000 of them into the U.S.

It’s the latest disastrous episode in a growing crisis that has seen well over 1 million migrants flood into the country since January in expectation of lenient treatment from the Biden administration. Rather than getting tough on illegal immigration, the administration has responded by releasing tens of thousands of migrants directly into the U.S., many presumably without court dates. The federal government’s ineptitude has resulted in state and local entities stepping up to defend the border themselves.

Yet, despite obvious evidence to the contrary, Obama claimed that America is in good hands under his former vice president’s leadership.

“As big-hearted as he is, nobody understands that better than Joe Biden,” he argued. “And the question is now: Are we gonna get serious about dealing with this problem in a systemic way, as opposed to these one-offs where we’re constantly reacting to emergencies? And I think that that’s something that every American should wanna put an end to.”

BREAKING: Federal Judge Rules Obama’s DACA Program Illegal, Blocks New Enrollments

A federal judge on Friday ruled the Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is illegal and blocked new enrollments.

Recall, Barack Obama granted illegal aliens protection in 2012 when he established the DACA program. According to reports, more than 800,000 illegal aliens are currently protected under Obama’s illegal DACA program.

Judge Hanen ordered the DHS to stop approving new DACA applications. A coalition of states, with Texas leading the way, filed a lawsuit arguing DACA is unconstitutional.

HORRIBLE CNN Interview For Obama


Authored By Kevin Jackson |

It’s only a matter of time before AG Bill Barr and newly appointed investigator John Durham get to this bit of information.

In an interview with CNN on July 22 of last year, crooked former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper inadvertently spilled the beans on Obama:

Transcript:

CLAPPER: “If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today, notably Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.”

Clapper is on record saying that Obama gave the order to begin the investigation. An investigation to which Obama knew the outcome. The “Intelligence Community assessment” mentioned by Clapper involved using the “unverified and salacious” Steele dossier. Note that it was disgraced former FBI director James Comey who described the dossier as such. Moreover, we now know that the dossier is worse than unverified, as it is a complete work of fiction compiled from Russian disinformation source by British agent Christopher Steele and financed by the Clinton campaign.

What of the Mueller Report?

How could Special Counsel Robert Mueller have ignored this revelation? Given this readily available information, Mueller’s team should have at least interviewed Obama. One would think they would want to understand a bit more about his role in authorizing the “assessment”. What prompted his decision, and when did he see it going south.

Also, consider what Obama said of a Russian threat in 2016:

Transcript:

I’ve never seen in my lifetime or in modern political history, any presidential candidate trying to discredit the elections and the election process before even votes have taken place. It’s unprecedented. It happens to be based on no facts.

Every expert regardless of political party regardless of ideology, conservative or liberal who’s ever examined these issues in a serious way would tell you that instances of significant voter fraud are not to be found. That,

Keep in mind elections are run by state and local officials which means that, uh,  there are places like Florida whose Republican appointees are going to be running or monitoring these election sites, the notion that if Mr. Trump loses Florida it’s those because of those people you to have to watch out for. That’s both irresponsible, and by the way doesn’t really show the kind of leadership and toughness you want out of a president. You start whining before the game’s even over. If whenever things are going badly for you, and you lose you start blaming someone else, then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job.

But the larger point I want to emphasize here is there is no serious person out there who would suggest that you could, you could even rig America’s elections. In part because they’re so decentralized and the numbers of votes involved. There’s no evidence that’s happened in the past, or that there are instances where that will happen this time. So I would advise Mr. Trump to stop whining and go make his case to get votes.

Interesting press conference given all that we’ve learned about “Russian collusion”.

I’m no investigator, but I’d like to know when Obama decided to take Trump seriously about cheating? I suspect it was on November 9, 2016.

What about the timing of Obama’s “whining”? In this presser he acknowledges the “Russian collusion” theory he previously denied had any possibility of happening?

To add to the new cover story, Obama expelled Russian diplomats:


Obama his minions hoped these efforts would form the basis of the coup against by this time, President-elect Trump. Meanwhile, they continued to monitor Trump and his team. Obama and team plotted to set people up in the Trump administration. And it all failed.

Now Clapper’s words haunt Obama and others in the administration. John Durham will build a pro-America team determined to get to the truth. And you can bet as I’ve written already, all roads lead back to Obama.

Transgenders in Turmoil as Trump Admin Moves for Huge Change to Definition of the Sexes



Reported By Benjamin Arie October 21, 2018 at 4:53pm

URL of the original posting site: https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/transgenders-turmoil-trump-admin-moves-huge-change-definition-sexes/

A report citing a government memo suggests the Trump administration is considering strict definitions of what gender a person can claim. (John Arehart / Shutterstock)

Take the global warming debate, for instance. One of the main arguments of the left has been that there’s scientific evidence pointing to man-made climate change, and we would be “science deniers” if we ignored it. It turns out that the global warming proof is more flimsy than they claimed, but at least they wanted leaders to make decisions based on evidence and science, imperfect as it is.

Now, it seems liberals have even thrown science out the window. Rejecting both evidence and common sense in favor of politically motivated pseudoscience, the left has been working overtime to push a different agenda.

No, not in favor of global warming, but rather transgenderism.

This push was especially strong during the last presidency. Even Newsweek recently admitted that President Barack Obama and his administration “worked to loosen the definition of gender,” and adopted an anything-goes approach that encouraged people to self-identify as whatever sex they wanted.

“A series of decisions by the Obama administration loosened the legal concept of gender in federal programs, including in education and health care, recognizing gender largely as an individual’s choice and not determined by the sex assigned at birth,” explained The New York Times.

The result? Gender debates became almost comical, with impossible-to-remember abbreviations like “LGBTTTIQ+” and nonsensical gender options such as “pansexual genderfluid nonbinary” being pushed as the new normal.

But the Trump administration may be pushing back.

According to a memo from the Department of Health and Human Services that was obtained by The Times, the administration is seriously considering defining gender in a much more traditional — and common sense — way.

“The Trump administration is considering narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth, the newspaper reported.

In simple terms, HHS is saying something that conservatives have long insisted: “Transgender” isn’t a definable gender, and you can’t magically switch your sex between male and female, no matter how many pills you take or invasive surgeries you undergo. One of the big problems with the Obama-era guidelines was that definitions were left vague.

“The department argued in its memo that key government agencies needed to adopt an explicit and uniform definition of gender as determined ‘on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable,’” The Times noted.

Biology? Objective? Grounded in science? Gasp — how dare they!

“Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth,” the HHS memo states, according to The New York Times, which has not made the full memo public.

“The sex listed on a person’s birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person’s sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence,” the cited memo reportedly says.

In other words, you can’t just change your birth certificate to say whatever you want, or constantly invent new sexual identity terms. Call it common sense.

“The agency’s proposed definition would define sex as either male or female, unchangeable, and determined by the genitals that a person is born with,” wrote The Times.

Unsurprisingly, mainstream media outlets rushed to paint the memo — which is still an unapproved proposal — as ominous and terrible for the estimated 0.6 percent of Americans who identify as “transgender.”

“‘Transgender’ Could Be Defined Out of Existence Under Trump Administration,” the scary-sounding title of The Times piece declared. Left out of that headline was the fact that the people themselves are fine; it’s the definition that is being looked it.

“Trump mulls narrowing transgender rights,” declared another purposely frightening headline from The Washington Examiner.

Further, the ability of a person to personally identify or act a certain way doesn’t disappear. If you go around referring to yourself as “transgender” or “Queen Amidala” or a “trans-species Velociraptor” that’s your own business. You still have rights. Just don’t expect official records — or medical experts — to back you up.

A 20-year-old can go around telling people that he’s 1,000 years old; he just can’t modify his legal birth certificate to say this or use it to go apply for senior citizen benefits. Regardless, he still has the same rights any other 20-year-old has.

The reality is that we don’t need ever-increasing special check boxes to define people if we actually apply legal rights evenhandedly. Your rights as an American citizen and a human being don’t suddenly disappear just because of a memo.

Liberals may be obsessed with special rights, but here’s an idea: Let’s try equal rights instead.

Patriots Are FURIOUS! Indirect Money Source For Gaza Riots Discovered – Guess Who It Is!


Reported by

 

Obama! You heard me right. Obama is paying for these riots but not directly. Let us start with Daniel Greenfield who wrote an article with one of the best paragraphs I have read in a news article. 

“Hamas supporters in Gaza held the world’s first peaceful protest with hand grenades, pipe bombs, cleavers, and guns. Ten explosive devices were peacefully detonated. There were outbursts of peaceful gunfire and over a dozen kites carrying firebombs were sent into Israel where they started 23 peaceful fires. And Israeli soldiers peacefully defended their country leaving multiple Hamas attackers at peace.”

With writing like that he could be working for CNN or the New York Times… Someday he could be a speechwriter for the Hillary 2032 campaign. But his writing does make a good point, Liberals are finally showing their true colors especially as far as their lack of support from Democrats is concerned.

Greenfield discovered that Hamas was paying protesters. $100 a day, $200 if you get shot by steel or rubber bullets. $500 if you are seriously wounded and your family will get $3,000 if you are killed. So, where would Hamas get that kind of money? They are hurting financially and don’t have the kind of money necessary to run the program.

“We met some young men earlier cashing $200 checks they got from Hamas after being shot by Israeli forces on Friday. The severely injured get $500 and the families of the dead get $3000.”

cash

So, where did the money come from? Who is the biggest sponsor of terrorism in the area? Iran. Now, Iran’s economy is very bad. There are no jobs and the infrastructure is falling apart. But Uncle Obama did send them pallet loads of money. It’s a safe bet that they haven’t used any of that money to help the people or to fix their infrastructure.

It’s so good to finally have a president after 8 years of nothing.

From The Conservative Tribune 

Bearing in mind the mass protests that have rocked the streets of numerous Iranian cities for several months by poor and unemployed Iranians fed up with the mullahs’ regime, and considering the nation’s crumbling infrastructure, it is obvious those several billions of dollars weren’t spent building up the country or helping the people.

Rather, it went into the pockets of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, where it was then distributed to Iranian-supported rebels and terrorists in hot spots around the globe, most especially Hezbollah militants in Lebanon and Syria, the Houthi rebels in Yemen, Shiite militias in Iraq and of course the Hamas terrorists in Gaza, among others.

Pink-Haired Nimcompoop Re the Trump Campaign Using Facebook Data (Video)


Authored by Tami Jackson | on

data mining

The Mainstream Media is hungering for another big Trump-bashing story. The Trump-Russia Collusion scandal turned out to be a non-starter, nothing but lefty wishful thinking gone viral. And all the apologies from the Progressive PR Arm — aka MSM? Uh…no. Crickets.

Now they’re running like a bunch of crazed worker ants that just discovered an untended picnic basket full of honey and other sweet stuff. The big data-mining scandal is now all the rage.

But seriously? Is there anyone on the planet who didn’t understand if you sign up for one of the Facebook apps, you have to agree to share your information (that would be data) with them. Hello? Anyone home McFly?

Obama and his team did that very data-mining thingy and were lauded by everyone in Hollywood and the press.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge wrote in January 2013, in her article, “How Obama Won the Social Media Battle in the 2012 Presidential Campaign”:

The 2008 Obama Presidential campaign made history.  Not only was Obama the first African American to be elected president, but he was also the first presidential candidate to effectively use social media as a major campaign strategy. It’s easy to forget, given how ubiquitous social media is today, that in 2008 sending out voting reminders on Twitter and interacting with people on Facebook was a big deal.  When Obama announced his candidacy in 2007, Twitter had only just started and there wasn’t even an iPhone yet.

Oh goody goody! Barry was the King of Kool and using the social media and data mining tools like a boss! But now that the Trump campaign took advantage of the tools bravely pioneered by Obama’s Social Media Hope Guru’s, Donald’s IT crew is portrayed as Darth Vader’s Imperial Army.

Check out this little pink-hair, nose-ring sporting whistle-blower. Oh yea. He’s breaking a big story.

Thanks again Mark Dice for shining a light on more Lefty, Resist, Snowflake nonsense!

Obama Did Fundamentally Transform the United States of America!


Authored by Tami Jackson | on

Obama Toilet zone Featured

Once upon a time, when a little-known half-black senator from Illinois made an obscure promise, no one really knew what he meant. His rhetoric was lofty and nebulous. Senator Obama proclaimed:

We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America!

The masses, whose data was carefully collected from Facebook, were sent daily bulletins via social media and text messages, feeding a frenzy of quasi-religious fervor for the unknown Obama. Oh how they loved that Chicago senator who promised:

America, this is our moment. This is our time. Our time to turn the page on the policies of the past. Our time to bring new energy and new ideas to the challenges we face. Our time to offer a new direction for the country we love.

The journey will be difficult. The road will be long. I face this challenge with profound humility, and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people.

Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth.

This was the moment – this was the time – when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals. 

What? Barry the Earth Whisperer would single-handedly heal the planet AND give us all free cell phones?

And. They. Bought. It.

Hook, line, and sinker.

Huckster Obama and wife, who said after Hubby Hope-and-Change was inaugurated, “And let me tell you something — for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country,” …transformed things alrighty.

Obama used his pen and phone to draw red lines and subsidize the failing solar industries and to flood the military with new rabidly pro-LGBTQ personnel and guidelines, to invite men who called themselves women into the bathrooms with your wives and daughters.

Obama ran on “Hope and Change.”

Imagine that. We all hoped he would change, but he did not. Barry’s legacy was a behemoth health care system which compelled people to sign up or be penalized. Hmmm. The Mafia did that back in the day…didn’t the U.S. purge itself of racketeering decades ago?

Obama’s “accomplishments” are too numerous to list: the but Hope and Change America got from #44 was not what any but an avowed Marxist pervert ever wanted.

Thus The Twilight Zone parody is perfect.

Our current president is far from perfect, but he does love America and Americans. Trump is not booking apology tours and kissing up to baby-killing Planned Parenthood. #45 reveres the U.S. Constitution, and honors our military.

Finally, maybe, just maybe, the millions of patriots who love America and her Constitution can hope for real change. Constitutional change that supports the dreams and aspirations of hard-working, LEGAL American citizens.

San Fran Nan Pelosi Loves Crumbs If They’re Obama Crumbs


Authored by Tami Jackson | on

crumbs

Nancy Pelosi can chalk up another sound bite to the Really Stupid Comments Hall of Fame. Pelosi waxed ignorant in response to the $1,000 bonuses paid out to American workers post Trump tax cut.

The botoxed Left Coast Lefty explained:

In terms of the bonus that corporate America received, versus the crumbs that they are giving to workers to kind of put the schmooze on, is so pathetic. It’s so pathetic.

I think it’s insignificant.

In the words of my dear dad, “IS SHE NUTS??” (rhetorical question)

Rep. Pelosi herself is worth between $29 million (per wikipedia) and $193 million (per Investment Watch), with The Atlantic citing a cool $74 million. I guess if I had $74 million I would consider $1,000 crumbs.

But to us normals, Nan, $1,000 is almost a month’s rent/mortgage. That would pay my electricity bill for the year. I’ve got news for you Your Royal Frozen-Faceness, $1,000 is a very big deal.

And just a few short years ago, in 2011, the very same Rich Representative proudly praised Obama:

Today is a victory for all Americans – for the security of our middle class, for the health of our seniors, and for economic growth and job creation.

The American people spoke out clearly and, thanks to President Obama’s leadership, 160 million Americans will continue to receive their payroll tax cut – nearly $40 per paycheck in the pockets of the average family.

I salute the work of the unified House Democratic caucus on behalf of the American people.

Let’s consider that. $40 per paycheck, on average, multiplied by 26 paychecks, is $1,040. So a savings of $1,040 for an entire year is cause for celebration when Obama is king…uh..president. But $1,000 bonuses PLUS increases in paychecks over the course of the year, is crumbs under President Trump.

I see how you roll.

National Review summed up Pelosi’s meager kingdom (I kid):

Nancy Pelosi may be one of the most liberal members of the U.S. House, where she runs the Democratic caucus, railing against income inequality and the avarice of the 1 percent.

But she also happens to be one of the body’s wealthiest members: In Washington, she lives in a multimillion-dollar Georgetown condo; she owns a 16-acre vineyard in Napa Valley and a 3,700 square-foot house in San Francisco’s tony Pacific Heights, according to her May 2015 financial disclosure statements.

Her May 2015 financial-disclosure statements, showing income that places her in the top one-tenth of the 1 percent of Americans, may surprise some in light of the concern she’s expressed about income equality and the distribution of wealth.

So every time Representative Pelosi bad mouths Trump and anyone else successful, think pot and kettle. Also remember, the modus operandi of The Left: nurture and feed a mentality of envy, thereby causing division and a deep desire to see whomever Progressives paint as “greedy fat cats” stripped of their lawfully acquired wealth, which should then be redistributed at the government’s whim.

That’s the battle cry of Pelosi and Bernie and good old Fauxcahontas. They yell “SQUIRREL!!!” (or wealthy) and paint every conservative policy as a money-grubbing, greedy ploy. Well sorry, Nan. You can’t fool us normals, us deplorables. $1,000 plus larger paychecks is something to be thankful for.

Could you just please go back to your vineyard and prep for your next Botox appointment? Drink some wine? Let the grownups who understand solid economics carry on the serious work as public servants.

Watch: Students Hate Trump Quotes Until They Learn They Were Actually From Obama


Published by ClashDaily.com | on February 5, 2018

URL of the original posting site: https://clashdaily.com/2018/02/watch-students-hate-trump-quotes-learn-actually-obama/

These folks have some pretty strong negative comments about these State of the Union quotes…

Cabot Phillips from Campus Reform spoke to several students outside John Jay College in New York and asked them to comment on some of the statements from the SOTU speech. What Phillips didn’t tell them is that the statements actually quoted Obama. 

This is what ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’ looks like in action.

Watch:

And then, when some of them realized what had happened, they backpedaled.

My favorite is the girl with the fur-trimmed hood and red scarf that went from ‘we need to mind our own business because there are other countries with automatic and nuclear weapons‘ to, ‘some people are quick to judge Donald Trump just because of a few things he says, but I think if they paid attention to his whole Presidency they’d have a better perspective on him‘.

But that’s not her, right — it’s ‘some’ people?

Riiiiight.

And then there’s the guy at the end that is reasonable. President Trump managed to get through to the American people that were really listening to him when he delivered the State of the Union Address.

The response was overwhelmingly positive.

And despite the character assassination that has been ongoing for almost two years by the Media (D), his numbers are getting a bump.

Could it be because he’s not the boogeyman that they portray him to be?

Could it be because he is implementing good policies that are benefiting Americans?

Could it be because the Democrats doubled-down on identity politics and refused to stand for things that they say that they champion?

Could it be because Democrats have learned absolutely nothing after the last election and shoved privileged, trust-funded ‘Kennedy Dynasty’ Rep. Joe Kennedy III to deliver the counter to the President’s SOTU speech?

It looks like Americans ain’t having it.

It looks like the antidote to ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’ is a healthy dose of #MAGA.

Did You Know Obama’s Immigration Raids Closed Restaurants BEFORE the Election?


waving flagBy Dave Jolly February 20, 2017

immigration arrests

The liberal mainstream media is having a field day reporting about the few illegal aliens being arrested for deportation. They talk about how terrible Trump is by breaking up families and threatening businesses. Every day, the news is filled with images and interviews with protesters and illegals. The reports are given in such a way as to vilify President Donald Trump and make him to be some unfeeling, cold-hearted bigoted hater.enemedia

Last week, the same liberal mainstream media made a spectacle of a nationwide liberal protest called ‘Day Without Immigrants.’ It’s a clear example of how biased the liberal news is because nothing Trump has done even suggests that he’s against legal immigrants.

Thousands of American citizens, legal and illegal immigrants walked off their jobs and out of classrooms all across the nation in protest against Trump and his executive order. The mainstream media reported on the thousands of protesters and they reported on how some restaurants and other businesses closed for the day in solidarity with the Day Without Immigrants protest. Ironically, one restaurant fired 12 Hispanic workers for not showing up to work in order to take part in the protest. They now say it’s unfair that they were terminated, but no one looks at it from the perspective of the employer who has a restaurant to open and run. If workers are excused for just not showing up to work for what they believe to be a worthwhile cause, then how can any employer rely on his staff to show up any day? Liberals can find an excuse to protest every day, so how many days should employees be allowed to just not show up for work and leave the employer stranded?

Trump fully supports legal immigration and legal immigrants already here. His executive order to stop immigration and acceptance of refugees was only TEMPORARY in order to improve and tighten the vetting system used to screen legal immigrants and refugees. There are several examples of how the vetting system used by the Obama administration failed to keep out some individuals who should never have been allowed to enter the United States. I speak specifically of Tashfeen Malik and several others like her.

Even though liberals are celebrating the rulings of liberal judges who blocked Trump’s order, they fail to realize that most of the terrorist attacks taking place in European countries have been carried out by refugees that were not properly screened. Even Syria’s President Assad said that when the judges blocked Trump’s order that many terrorists flocked to the US disguised as refugees, and that’s exactly what President Trump wanted to prevent.rapeugees02

However, no one seemed to be reporting about the same thing happening during Obama’s presidency when his immigration officers made raids, arrested illegals and forced the closure of restaurants.

On October 18, 2016, less than a month before the November election, Immigration and Customs agents raided a number of restaurants where they arrested and detained a number of illegal aliens.

In Buffalo, New York, ICE agents entered the Agave Restaurant and arrested a 19-year-old cook named Sergio Roblero. He came to the US from Chiapas, Mexico on a work visa and then overstayed his work visa and never bothered to try to renew it. Consequently, he was arrested. Three of the ‘sister restaurants’ of Agave were also raided by OBAMA’s ICE agents leading to the arrests of 25 illegal aliens. Of the four restaurants raided by Obama’s ICE agents, only one has yet to reopen its doors for business. The other three remain closed.

But where is the mainstream media coverage of how the arrest of illegal aliens have resulted in the closing of businesses and loss of jobs and income for Americans, under the regime of Barack Obama? Why is the mainstream media feasting on similar things under Trump, but totally ignored the very same thing happening under Obama? When is the last time you heard the liberal mainstream media report that during Obama’s tenure in the White House, around 3 million illegals were arrested and deported?

Yet, the media is focusing on a few dozen arrests of illegals here and there under Trump, but ignored the 3 million arrests made under Obama. This is a clear example of the worst kind of journalism there is – biased, twisted and agenda driven instead of an unbiased reporting of the truth.propaganda machine

‘Circuits’ or ‘Circuses’? Here’s why we desperately need judicial reform at the circuit court level


Clown judge / Ken Cook | Shutterstock

With Supreme Court decisions erroneously regarded as the supreme law of the land instead of the Constitution, everyone on the Right is clamoring to ensure that Trump makes the best Supreme Court pick(s) possible. But given that well under one percent of all federal civil and criminal cases make it to the Supreme Court, decisions coming out of the 13 federal courts of appeals ostensibly (and again, erroneously) serve as “the law of the land” for many critical social and political issues, as we so painfully witnessed with last week’s “9th Circus” ruling.

That is why it is at least as an important to fill the federal circuits with originalist’ as it is for the Supreme Court. However, if Trump is going to leave his mark on the judiciary, that would require taking bold measures to overturn established traditions so that each appeals court nominee would be more in the mold of Clarence Thomas than even a Neil Gorsuch, much less a John Roberts or Anthony Kennedy.

Why the U.S. Court of Appeals is so vital

For those paying attention to how a mere district judge in one bad circuit can violate the national sovereignty, you need no tutorial on the importance of the lower courts.

In 2015, 54,244 cases were filed in the 12 regional courts of appeals (not including the specialized appeals court for the Federal Circuit) out of a total of 361,689 that began at the district level. At the same time, only about 80 cases were granted full review by the Supreme Court. In other words, the federal courts of appeals are ostensibly the court of last resort for most federal cases. And given that the Left has successfully redefined the Constitution, almost every political issue has become a federal case.partyof-deceit-spin-and-lies

Even though many of the major cases broadly affecting public policy are granted review by the high court, many languish in the lower courts for years and never make it to the Supreme Court. Moreover, the Supreme Court is clearly influenced by the jurisprudential momentum of the lower courts. Given that most of the circuits are full of post-constitutionalists who make Anthony Kennedy look like James Madison, it creates a peer pressure in the legal community to move away from the Constitution as written.

Keep in mind that most of the major cases of consequence pending before the Supreme Court have been appealed by conservatives because of bad lower court decisions.

Remember, gay marriage didn’t happen in a vacuum with the Obergefell case. Almost every district court and all but one of the circuits redefined marriage in one of the most anti-constitutional opinions of all time. We are witnessing a similar trend with lower courts chipping away at the “plenary power doctrine” on immigration in recent years.

Furthermore, justices will rarely take up a case expeditiously when there is no split decision among at least two circuit courts. Given that the lower courts are in such bad shape — with such a dearth of originalist — conservatives can rarely win in even one circuit on such bedrock issues as voter ID, religious conscience, and an array of immigration issues. The lower courts tee up the contours and the dynamics of the cases that reach the high court. Therefore, if we fail to change the personnel and the procedures of the lower courts, another two solid originalist on the Supreme Court (assuming one of the liberals dies or resigns from office) would have only a limited effect.

Keep in mind that most of the major cases of consequence pending before the Supreme Court have been appealed by conservatives because of bad lower court decisions. The tyranny begins and usually ends in the circuits. Given that Republicans have control of the federal government and most state governments, we will only be playing defense in the lower courts because that is where the Left will plant their flag, even more so than during the Obama era.

Where the circuits stand: An anti-constitutional circus

It’s not just the 9th Circus.9th-circus-court2

You could probably count on your fingers the number of true originalist (à la Clarence Thomas) on the circuit courts. While it’s arduous to game out the “ideology” of each judge and circuit, here is my preliminary attempt at an overview of the circuits.

First, we will begin with this infographic detailing the number of Republican appointees and Democrat appointees by circuit among active judges (not including semi-retired “senior judges”). The graphic also shows the strong influence of Obama’s eight years on the appeals courts and the immediate vacancies that can be filled by Trump.

U.S. Court of Appeals Judges

A few observations stand out.

1. Among active judges, Democrats now have an outright majority on nine of the 13 circuits.

And as we will explain in a moment, the courts are in worse shape than this topline number would suggest because almost every Democrat-appointee is a post-constitutionalist while only half the GOP-appointees are conservatives and only relatively small number are true originalist. Just consider how two GOP-appointed judges were already involved in the immigration ruling, one of the most radical and harmful decisions of all-time.

2. There are 20 vacancies that Trump can and should fill immediately.

But Obama’s presidency was so strategic that it will take a long time to swing back a single circuit. Only 10 of those 20 are Democrat vacancies that would tilt the balance of a seat and most are not in circuits that will fundamentally alter the balance of most three-judge panels.

3. The all-important D.C. Circuit is now 7-4 majority Democrat appointees, with four judges appointed by Obama alone.

The D.C. Circuit is the second most influential court in the land on constitutional issues. Worse, while there are some solid senior judges, Janice Rogers Brown is the only real originalist left among the active judges, with Brett Kavanaugh a mostly reliable conservative. The D.C. Circuit is going to be a dumpster fire for the indefinite future. Moreover, if you drill down into the district level, the District Court for the District of Columbia has an 11-0 Democrat majority among active judges!

Does Congress not realize it has the complete power to rein in rogue courts?

By the middle of the year, when all the current vacancies take effect, there will be 90 Democrat appointees, 69 GOP appointees, and 20 vacancies among active seats on the appeals courts. However, the circuit courts are really in much worse shape than even the top line numbers would suggest.

Remember, almost all of the cases in the appeals courts are decided by a randomly selected three-judge panel, which also includes the senior judges (although their caseload is reduced in varying degrees). While it is possible to request a full en banc review of a case by the full circuit, those reviews are relatively rare in most circuits. Due to the clear Democrat majority on nine of the circuits and the lack of originalist on most of those panels, the legal Left is almost always assured a favorable panel for whatever they are looking to do: redefine marriage, infringe upon religious liberty, throw out abortion regulations, block photo ID, etc.

On the other hand, we’d be lucky to find 15 originalist on the appeals courts who are every bit as conservative as the 90 Democrat appointees — and a number of Republican appointees — are liberal.

Now let’s take a look at the four circuits where there is a supposed GOP majority:

7th Circuit

This is the easiest one to game out. The 6-3 GOP majority is extremely deceiving. This circuit is home to the infamous Richard Posner, a Reagan appointee who quite literally believes that the Constitution as adopted is outdated and should be disregarded. He wrote the 7th Circuit’s tyrannical gay marriage opinion, among many other bad decisions.

Only two of the nine active judges can be considered reliable originalist across the board: Michael Kanne and Dianne Sykes. While many conservative legal theorists have respected Frank Easterbrook for many years, he has shown that he doesn’t believe in an individual right to bear arms. The rest of the Republican appointees range from progressive to unreliable. Thus liberals can pretty much rely on a favorable three-judge panel for almost anything they want.not-okay

6th Circuit

The 9-5 majority of GOP appointees is very misleading if one thinks this is an originalist-dominated circuit.

First, Judge Helene White, although appointed by Bush, is really a liberal Democrat who was selected by Michigan’s two Democrat senators as part of a deal. Jeffrey Sutton, another W appointee, wrote the court’s opinion upholding Obamacare. Out of the seven remaining GOP appointees, only Alice Batchelder could be counted among the most reliable originalist with a few others leaning conservative, such as Raymond Kethledge. Another conservative, Danny Boggs, just retired, so at best his vacancy will be a wash.

Thus, between the liberal active judges and a number of other liberal senior judges in this circuit, it’s hit or miss for conservatives in terms of getting a reliable three-judge panel. In fact, the far Left recently got a three-judge panel to say that transgenderism is settled law and helped promote Jill Stein’s crazy recount in Michigan!

5th and 8th Circuits

The only two circuits that could remotely be considered conservative are the 5th and 8th circuits. However, even the fifth is not as good as its numbers would suggest. The panel certainly has its share of solid judges, with Edith Jones, Priscilla Owen, Jennifer Elrod, and Jerry Smith. But last year, conservatives couldn’t even get voter ID past the full panel because a few GOP appointees joined with the Left.

The 8th Circuit is probably the best panel in the country. However, that makes the three vacancies on the court somewhat moot because they’d be better served on other courts.

The balance of power will not shift very soon

As you can see, although there is much hype surrounding the more than 100 vacancies on the court, they will not swing the balance in terms of the circuits. Only 20 of the vacancies are on appeals courts, of which only 10 are Democrat seats, and many of them are on circuits that are irremediably broken or on the 8th Circuit, which is already good.

Want to take back our sovereignty? Start by breaking up the Ninth Circuit

Moreover, the prognosis for the future is grim. Many Democrat judges will view Trump as anathema that they will not retire under his watch. A quick glance at the vacancy list shows that all five of the circuit court judges who retired since Trump won the election were Republican, as were most of the district court retirees. Thus the trend is not indicative of a host of opportunities to flip the balance of the circuits. Which is one more reason why we need wholesale judicial reform in addition to filling vacancies.

Trump must act soon to fill vacancies and demand originalist in the mold of Thomas

Nonetheless, it is important that Trump not wait the traditional six months or so to start the process of filling lower court vacancies. While I don’t believe it will fundamentally alter the balance of the courts, the better judges who are in the circuits make it more likely we will get lucky and have a decent three-judge panel for random, important cases.

However, if Trump is to make his appointments meaningful, he would have to depart from longstanding tradition that gives home state senators major input on nominees and allows them to potentially scuttle the nomination.

One of the reasons why we have many liberal judges from Republican presidents — such as Judge Robart, a W appointee — is because Democrat senators can “blue slip” any nominee from their state they dislike. Under Senate tradition, the Judiciary Committee will refuse to hold a hearing on any nominee that is officially opposed by the home state senators. This is why it’s so hard to get even a marginally conservative judge approved from blue states, much less someone in the mold of Clarence Thomas.

Even in red states with two GOP senators, the judicial nominees often reflect a legal mirror image of their political views, which are moderate at best. And in states with senators from opposing parties, Republicans have often cut deals to approve only those nominees who are acceptable to their home state Democrat senator.

The problem of home state RINOS and Democrats is further exacerbated by the fact that tradition tends to kick-em-out-of-officebind the president to maintaining state continuity in seats within a circuit court. According to CRS, just 13 percent of circuit court appointments since the Kennedy administration have changed state representation from the vacant seat. And it is downright mandated by law that every state has at least one judge on the given circuit court and that every nominee must at least reside within the circuit at the time of the appointment.

Trump would have to expend as much political capital trying to ‘appoint better judges’ in a meaningful way as he would by pursuing judicial reform.

Consequently, if a president wants to fill a vacant seat from a state with a Democrat senator, he would be constrained by tradition from filling it with someone from a state with two Republicans, thereby avoiding a blue slip problem.

To begin with, it’s so hard to find Clarence Thomases in this profession. The limitation of state allocation rules and blue slip obstruction are killers. This is why despite swearing every time we will do a better job “appointing better judges,” we wind up with more Kennedys and Roberts on the lower courts. It’s also why outside of the geographical areas of the fifth and eighth circuits, it’s hard to appoint a string of reliable conservatives. There are three vacancies from the 3rd Circuit, for example, but it will be very hard to fill them with originalist given the geographical problem.

As such, Trump would have to expend as much political capital trying to “appoint better judges” in a meaningful way as he would by pursuing judicial reform. Yet the latter would actually solve the problem in the long run.

It’s quite evident that we still need judicial reform, but in the meantime Trump would be wise to fill the vacancies aggressively on circuit courts and make it clear to Senate Republicans that they are to promote originalist with the same gusto that Obama used to confirm anti-constitutionalists.

Levin: ‘For once in their pathetic lives’ will liberals condemn Obama after he let traitor Manning off?


Chelsea Manning poster / Timothy Krause | Flickr

Manning is a former American intelligence analyst who received a 35-year sentence for acts of treason against the United States. He leaked classified documents detailing American military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan – among other sensitive information – that put American lives in danger, betraying his fellow soldiers and his country.

He is a traitor. And President Obama commuted his sentence today.

Listen:

“Manning is a traitor who pled guilty to a lesser offense to avoid the full penalty for his crimes,” Levin read from French’s piece. “He has received too much mercy already. President Obama’s commutation of his sentence is a disgrace.”

Levin invited liberals to call his program and attempt to defend what Obama did today.

“I want some damn liberal to step up to the plate and either defend what Obama did or for once in their pathetic lives to condemn him!” Levin exclaimed.

Meanwhile, over 50 Democratic politicians are going to skip President-elect Trump’s inauguration, Levin noted, and not a one of them have spoken up about this. President Obama committed an “affirmative act of betrayal by commuting the sentence of a treasonous little son-of-a-gun,” Levin said.

Why won’t any Leftists call him out on it?

Iran Wants More Pallets of Cash


waving flagAugust 9, 2016By

I wonder if now that the Obama administration has paid the ransom “we owed” the Iranian regime, whether it will set a precedent for others to put their hands out and demand, or at least request funds from the U.S. treasury?

Heck, even before the precedent, the Israeli government asked the U.S. to bump up its annual military stipend from $3 billion to $5 billion. Those dirty, money-grubbing Jews – asking for an additional $2 billion. You might think that, but they are blaming the Obama administration for the fact that they must request it in the first place.

It seems the Middle East is poised to get a lot more dangerous thanks to the huge infusion of cash which was part of the US-Iran nuclear agreement. So thanks to Obama, Israel expects to have to spend a lot more on defense. They do have a point.

Now in, we’ll call the post-ransom period, another has come forward asking for cash. Our old buddy, “former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is asking President Obama to release nearly $2 billion in Iranian assets frozen in a New York bank account.”

The Hill reports that Mahmoud is back and may be considering dealanother run for president next year.

I guess he plans to return to the election circuit as the conquering hero, with $1.75 billion in tow.

However, as you may recall – this is the same $1.75 billion that the supreme Court voted 6-2 to disperse over 1,000 victims of various terrorist atrocities perpetrated on Americans over the years, “including the 1983 bombing of a Marine barracks in Beirut and the 1996 attacks on Saudi Arabia’s Khobar towers…”

“Iran is appealing the case at the international Court of Justice.” Court of Justice. Sounds like a place where superheroes gather. Not quite – more like super-leftists.

pallets-of-cash-to-iranBut Mahmoud isn’t content to leave it in the hands of the courts. He instead has penned an open letter to Obama.

After a full paragraph of praising Allah and Mohammed, he gets down to it, spending the next couple paragraphs buttering up Obama – telling him that basically nothing is his fault. Birds of a feather, I suppose, as Obama has said the same for years.

However, Mahmoud doesn’t mention Bush specifically as does Obama – just past administrations that have been responsible for “about 60 years of oppression and cruelty by different American governments against the Iranian nation…”extra bowl of stupid

He then cites the supreme Court case which he claims illegally seized Iranian assets. He asks for “his Excellency,” Obama to “quickly fix” the problem and “that not only the Iranian nations must be restored, and the seized property released and returned, but also the damages caused be fully compensated for.”

Iran-ATM-600-LIWow – he sure knows the American legal system. If he loses his bid for the presidency, Mahmoud could no doubt become a slip and fall lawyer. And he also knows Obama, the leftist, as he plays to Obama’s legacy. “I passionately advise you not to let the historical affirmation and bitter incident be recorded under your name,” writes Mahmoud.

I don’t know whether Obama has the authority to release the funds the court has already allocated. Of course I also don’t think the court should have the authority, regardless of the good cause.

In my opinion, if Obama does “find” the authority, he would certainly get out the forklift again and load up the unmarked jet with more pallets of Euros. Anything for his pals in Iran.
