Resist We Much

What is happening here is blatantly obvious. The democrats, allied with a hyper-partisan judiciary, are conspiring to completely neuter President Trump by interfering with every lawful order he issues. What they are attempting to do, in essence, is usurp his authority to run the country by leftist judicial fiat. Trump must ignore this illegal restraining order to take back the powers granted to him by the Constitution to defend this country from all enemies, foreign and domestic.

From Powerline:
What we are seeing here is a coup: a coup by the New Class; by the Democratic Party; by far leftists embedded in the bureaucracy and the federal judiciary. Our duly elected president has issued an order that is plainly within his constitutional powers, and leftists have conspired to abuse legal processes to block it. They are doing so in order to serve the interests of the Democratic Party and the far-left movement. This is the most fundamental challenge to democracy in our lifetimes.
The battle lines are clearly drawn. What Watson has done has nothing to do with the law. It is a partisan coup, and must be resisted.

More on the Left’s Judicial Coup
Two federal judges, one in Hawaii and one in Maryland, have enjoined execution of President Trump’s travel order. These court orders are obviously illegal and unconstitutional. Under the Constitution and federal law, the president has the power to suspend immigration from any and all countries if he deems it in the best interest of the United States.
The net result is that Trump has been stripped of his constitutional and statutory powers to protect the nation through control of who is permitted to enter the country.
***
As discussed in prior posts, the power to control who enters the country is uniquely a presidential power. Not anymore, unless the Supreme Court acts to restore that power.
I disagree to this extent: the moment the next Democratic president is inaugurated, the executive’s constitutional powers will magically be restored and, indeed, extended.
Arguably President Trump has a duty to disregard the Hawaii and Maryland courts’ illegal injunctions, and direct the executive branch to carry out his order. His obligation under the Constitution is to exercise his powers in defense of the American people.

THIS WILL UNDOUBTEDLY END UP AT THE SUPREME COURT, EVEN BEFORE THE HEARINGS ON NEIL GORSUCH. WHAT THAT MEANS IS THAT THE COURT MAY EITHER DECLINE TO HEAR IT OR SPLIT 4-4, LEAVING THE TRO IN PLACE. IT’S A SAFE BET THAT, EVEN THOUGH THIS IS A SLAM DUNK, THERE IS NO WAY BREYER, BROOMHILDA THE WITCH, OR HER TWO UGLY SISTERS WILL GIVE A FAIR DECISION WHEN IT COMES TO DONALD TRUMP.
THE SUPREMES VOTED 9-0 IN 2012 TO HOLD OBAMA’S NON-RECESS RECESS APPOINTMENTS TO THE LABOR BOARD WERE UNCONSTITUTIONAL. WHAT DID HE DO? RAISE HIS MIDDLE FINGER, SMILE, AND SAY ‘FUCK YOU,’ AND HIS HAND-PICKED UNION THUGS WERE STILL SERVING WHEN HE LEFT OFFICE. TRUMP MUST DO ESSENTIALLY THE SAME THING, BUT WITHOUT THE FINGER. OUR SECURITY DEPENDS ON IT.

Trump’s Refugee Order Looms Large Over Gorsuch Hearing
The ongoing legal battle over President Donald Trump’s executive order on refugee and migrants may dominate next week’s hearings on Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to succeed the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court.
“You can find example after example of Judge Gorsuch siding against workers even in the most dire circumstances,” she said.
Trump’s revised executive order on refugee and migrants, and two new court orders temporarily enjoining its enforcement, could hijack the hearing and dominate the proceedings.

Judge Considers Ordering President Donald Trump to Double 50,000 Refugee Inflow to the United States
A federal District Court judge in Maryland is considering whether he should order President Donald Trump to double the annual inflow of refugees up to 100,000 per year.
Any demand by the judge that the federal government airbus an extra 50,000 migrants — including many adherents of Islam’s sharia legal system — into American neighborhoods would be an unusual intervention into government roles normally left to the elected President and Congress.

5 Problems With The Hawaii Judge Halting Trump’s Travel Ban
The executive order, which was a loosened version of a previous version struck down by another court, suspends entry to the United States for 90 days from nationals of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. It also suspends the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program for 120 days.
“This is an unprecedented judicial overreach,” Trump said of Judge Derrick Watson’s order, during a rally in Nashville.
Whether you agree or disagree with the executive order — and there are plenty of people on both sides of that debate, for many different reasons — the judge’s ruling has some serious problems. Here are a few of them.

YOU MAY NOT HAVE HEARD THIS… THAT’S WHY YOU COME HERE

Plaintiff behind Trump travel ban runs Muslim Brotherhood mosque
Imam born and raised in Egypt, migrated to U.S.
Imam Ismail Elshikh, 39, leads the largest mosque in Hawaii and claims he is suffering “irreparable harm” from the president’s executive order, which places a 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. from six countries.
One of those six countries is Syria. Elshikh’s mother in law is Syrian and would not be able to visit her family in Hawaii for 90 days if Trump’s ban were allowed to go into effect.
Hawaii’s Obama-appointed federal judge, Derrick Watson, made sure the ban did not go into effect, striking it down Wednesday while buying Hawaii’s claim that it amounts to a “Muslim ban.” The state’s attorney general, along with co-plaintiff Elshikh, claims the ban would irreparably harm the state’s tourism industry and its Muslim families.

SPLIT IT: Congress Considers Splitting The 9th Circuit
Judges Sidney Thomas, Carlos Bea, and Alex Kozinski give testimony before a House panel on splitting the 9th Circuit.
Democrats on the subcommittee argued that the administrative and logistical concerns Republican lawmakers raised were little more than a thin veneer masking their ideological hostility to the court.
“Like clockwork we see proposals to split the 9th Circuit whenever it hands down decisions with which conservatives disagree,” said Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler.
“The 9th Circuit has long been in the sights of Republican politicians,” he added.

Betsy DeVos confirmed as Trump’s Secretary of Education

As expected, the vote was 50-50, triggering the remedy provided for in the Constitution, which is for the Vice President to break the tie.

  • “The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no Vote, unless they be equally divided.”

Sen Chuck Schumer (D-NY) played his role in the on-going Democrats in La-La Land farce by tweeting:

Today @VP Mike Pence did something no one else has ever done: cast the tie breaking vote on his own cabinet nominee. #RiggedCabinet   — Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) February 7, 2017

That’s definitely not ridiculous or anything.

  1. It’s not his cabinet. It’s President Trump’s.
  2. It’s not “rigged” to follow the procedures set out in the Constitution.
  3. It’s not “rigged” for the VP to vote for the person he wants.

Senator Schumer, you make me ashamed to be among your constituents.

Send In the Clowns

It begins. The inquisition against Jeff Sessions, a moral and Godly man strictly for the purposes of political posturing will be forced to defend himself against phony racism charges from people who have worked beside him for 20 years. The hearing is in progress as I bang on this keyboard, so this is an ongoing process. I have it on in the background and it is difficult to listen to the likes of Leahy, Durbin and Feinstein pontificate when they’re all as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.

Sessions’ Granddaughter Stole The Show At His Confirmation Hearing

Sen. Jeff Sessions’ granddaughter captured hearts at his Tuesday attorney general confirmation hearing.  While opening statements were read, Sessions played with his granddaughter, who occasionally interrupted proceedings with adorable toddler babbling.

Code Pink Protesters Dressed as KKK Greet AG Nominee Jeff Sessions at Hearing


Senator Jeff Sessions desegregated schools in Alabama and took on the KKK in the state. Democrats are desperate to stop the Alabama Senator’s confirmation.  This morning Code Pink activists greeted Senator Sessions dressed as KKK members.

Cory Booker to Testify Against Sessions in Unprecedented Move
So much for the ‘peaceful transition’ that the Democrats said they would facilitate. Democrat Senator Cory Booker is set to testify against Republican Senator Jeff Sessions in an unprecedented move during his attorney general confirmation.
This is going to be the first time in history that a sitting senator will testify against another sitting senator for a Cabinet post during a confirmation.

Booker in 2016: ‘I Feel Blessed and Honored’ to Work With Sessions Celebrating Civil Rights Advocates

Democratic Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.) thanked his colleague Sen. Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) last year at the Capitol for his help celebrating the 1965 “Foot Soldiers,” those who marched from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama to promote civil rights for African Americans.

THAT WAS THEN. THIS IS NOW. GOT TO MAKE POLITICAL HAY.

Sessions Faces a Political Lynch Mob

The incident set the stage for what will no doubt be an ugly attempt by Democrats to assassinate the character of the gentleman from Alabama.
Some Democrats are calling him by his given name, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions – a wink-wink, nod-nod to the Civil War – as if he’s a slave-holding plantation owner.

[CtH: Remember when they were offended by people calling Candidate Obama “Barack Hussein Obama”?]

Hans Von Spakovsky: Democrats Oppose Jeff Sessions Because He’ll Enforce Our Immigration Laws
“But Democrats really don’t like him because of his views on issues,” he continued. “For example, they really don’t want someone who’s actually going to enforce our immigration laws. They’ve been giving him a hard time in the civil rights area too, even though many of their criticisms really have been false.
SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam suggested that Democrats would be “uncouth” to Sessions to gin up donations and political support from their base.

Sessions Tells Senators: ‘You Know I Believe in Fairness, Impartiality and Equal Justice’
“You know who I am,” he said. “You know what I believe in. You know that I am a man of my word and can be trusted to do what I say I will do. You know that I revere our Constitution and that I am committed to the rule of law. And you know that I believe in fairness, impartiality, and equal justice under the law.”

Feinstein Tells Sessions It ‘Not His Job’ to Prosecute Hillary Because Trump Wants Him To
HE ASSURED HER HE WOULD RECUSE HIMSELF SHOULD CACKLEPANTS BE PROSECUTED

In particular, Feinstein insisted that Sessions’ job does not include the prosecution of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, who we all know abused her email use and put national security at risk. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump suggested that he was going to hire a special prosecutor to “look into her situation.”
“The attorney general must put aside loyalty to the president,” she said. The law and Constitution, she emphasized, must come first and foremost.

Constitutional Hypocrisy

The Left only cites the Constitution when it suits them.  Otherwise, they consider it out-dated and deeply flawed.  Plus, the right to life, religious liberty, and private gun ownership are specifically and clearly stated in the Constitution, whereas the alleged right to murder unborn humans is found in the “penumbra” of the right to privacy.  Pft.  [Penumbra: The partly shadowed area between what is clearly seen and what is too dark to see.  Used particularly when describing a lunar eclipse.]

ABORTION constitutional hypocrisy

Leftists also say quite often that “nobody is pro-abortion.”  Doublt pft.  The photo is of a pro-abortion display put together by the campus atheist club last week at the University of North Georgia. It featured cookies shaped like fetuses. The person who took the pictures said pro-abortion folks were laughing as they broke the heads off the cookies.

Democrats and the 14th Amendment

Left v Right 14th amendment

Democrat presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders is a true Democrat.  When asked about his position on abortion, he said:

“I will fight as strong as I can to defend a woman’s right to choose. I believe that it is an outrage that Republicans who tell us how much they hate the government now want to tell every American — every American woman what she can and cannot do with her body. And I do agree with the Secretary. I don’t believe there’s any constitutional protection for the unborn.”

“I think that decision ultimately has got to be made by the woman. I have a 100 percent pro-choice voting record throughout my career. That decision must be made by the woman, must be made by her family and her physician, not by the federal government, not by the state government.”

Ted Cruz: Congress needs to protect the unborn

Last December, Princeton Professor Robert George interviewed Senator Ted Cruz, who argued that unborn babies are PERSONS within the meaning of the 14th Amendment, ERGO they have a right to life under the nation’s founding document.  Moreover, the 5th section of the 14th Amendment calls specifically on Congress to enforce this in the law.

ABORTION We lied

Below is a partial transcript of the section of the interview that begins at 9:34.  This whole interview is well worth your time.  IMHO, there is no other Republican presidential candidate that deserves my vote.

CANDIDATE CONVERSATIONS 2016 WITH ROBERT GEORGE – 2015-11-25

   GEORGE: Ted, the Fourteenth Amendment says that no state shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property without due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. Now, the amendment in its fifth section includes a provision that delegates to the Congress the power, and I quote, to enforce by appropriate legislation the provisions of this article.

CRUZ: Yep.

GEORGE: Now, do you believe that unborn babies are persons within the meaning of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, and if so will you call on Congress to use its authority under the Fourteenth Amendment, pursuant to Section 5, to protect the unborn? Or do you take the view, as some do, that we can’t do that until Roe v. Wade is overturned, either by the court itself or by constitutional amendment? Where do you stand on that?

CRUZ: Listen, absolutely yes. I think the first obligation of everyone in public office is to protect life. Life is foundational. In fact, as you look at the Declaration, that ordering of unalienable rights, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, I think it’s a very deliberate ordering. Without life there is no liberty, and without liberty there is no pursuit of happiness. That each builds upon the other, and I very much agree with the Pope’s longstanding, and prior popes before him, longstanding call to protect every human life from the moment of conception to the moment of natural death.

GEORGE: And we can do that with congressional action without waiting for Roe v. Wade being overturned?

CRUZ:  Absolutely yes.

WH Gun Death Stats Are Totally Misleading

The White House is lying with statistics when it touts the total number of gun deaths to justify Obama’s upcoming, gun control, end run around the Constitution. Here is what the numbers mean in context:
