ROSENSTEIN IS OUT-OUT: Whitaker is in-in — Matthew Whitaker was appointed acting Attorney General in November after Jeff Sessions was fired in disgrace. Whitaker immediately took over the Mueller investigation, bumping DAG Rod Rosenstein from the role and the Democrats went crazy calling for him to recuse himself. On Wednesday, ethics officials cleared Whitaker to take over the Mueller probe.

KARMA in COLORADO: Christian baker going on offense — This summer, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 7-2 that Colorado officials had discriminated against the Masterpiece Cakeshop owner’s religious beliefs while trying to force him to bake a cake for a same-sex “wedding.” Shortly thereafter, a trannie complained that he wouldn’t bake a cake to celebrate his transition to female and Colorado jumped on him again. Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), the religious liberty nonprofit that represented Phillips in his original case, responded by filing a federal lawsuit against outgoing Democrat Gov. John Hickenlooper and the state civil rights commission, accusing them of ignoring the Supreme Court’s ruling and continuing to discriminate against Phillips’ faith.
This reminds me of a case where my home town persecuted a preacher for talking about the sin of homosexuality on The Commons. The city threw away $100,000 of tax payers’ money only to lose what should have been an obvious First Amendment right. Did they learn? They did not. They turned right around and arrested the NEXT preacher, who SHOWED THE COPS THE JUDGE’S DECISION. That case cost another $8K. The mayor said something weaselly about how they never meant to infringe on anyone’s right. Yeah. Suuuuure you didn’t.
