Just Damn

The posting function wouldn’t load, so I posted some things under the posts by CtH and Bluebird. Please take the time to check them out.

There is a link about the former organizer-in-chief advising Americans to not feel so patriotic on the 4th holiday. Spoken like a true America-hating Muslim jerked. We suffered 8 long years listening to him run down the nation so many sacrificed everything for. Patriots set things right last November and the socialists have gone insane since then.

With all the chaos in the world today — Putin messing with Syria, Europe suffering bomb and vehicle attacks, and yesterday, North Korea launched an ICBM with the range to reach Alaska — I thank the Almighty that we have a man of strength and determination to carry the load of keeping us safe.

US-Backed Forces Breach Center Of ISIS ‘Capital’ In Syria

THE FORCES FIGHTING ISIS ARE GLAD THEY KNOW WHICH SIDE THIS AMERICAN PRESIDENT IS ON

The battle for Raqqa began in June when the Kurdish-led SDF assaulted the city, following a campaign to secure the surrounding countryside. U.S.-backed fighters completely surrounded Raqqa Sunday, after crossing the Euphrates River on the southern edge of the city.

Tweeters:

Mattis says the U.S. strike on al-Shayrat took out a fifth of #Assad’s “operational aircraft.”  In one night. After six years of mayhem.

NYT op-ed: “Publicity stunts aren’t policy.”  Who writes this crap? Oh yeah, Paul Krugman.

CNN’s interview goes way off the anti-Trump rails

You HAVE to watch this!  His story is compelling and tragic, but all she cared about was getting him to say something negative about President Trump.  Check out the sour lemon look on her face!

2017_04 08 CNN disappointed

When she pushes him to criticize Trump’s refugee ban, he says, “We don’t WANT to be refugees. Help us to stay in our country!”  You really HAVE to watch this entire interview!

Syria

April 6, 2017:  President Donald Trump said, “Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women and children. It was a slow and brutal death for so many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack. No child of God should ever suffer such horror. Tonight I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched.”

2017_04 06 Trump orders Syria strike

January 2017: Obama’s out-going National Security Adviser Susan Rice claimed that Obama had convinced the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile.

April 2017:  The victims of Syria’s most recent chemical attack on its own citizens were unavailable for comment.

Unsurprisingly, Syria, Iran, and Russia condemned the strike.  But other world leaders have by and large been very supportive of Trump’s move.

  • “[W]e fully support the strike.” – UK Defense Secretary Michael Fallon
  • “This regime must be removed from leading Syria as soon as possible.”  – Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu
  • “President Assad alone carries responsibility for these developments” with his “repeated use of chemical weapons and his crimes against his own people.” – German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande
  • It was an “appropriate response” to the “unthinkable brutality” of the chemical attack that “serves as an example to the entire free world” to support steps to end atrocities in Syria. – Israeli President Reuven Rivlin
  • The airstrikes were “a means to prevent further deterioration of the situation.” – Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe
  • “The United States has clearly indicated that (Syrian President Bashar) Assad’s atrocities do not go unpunished.” – Denmark’s Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen
  • “This was a calibrated, proportionate and targeted response. It sends a strong message to the Assad regime, and … has been struck at the very airfield from which the chemical attack was delivered.” – Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull
  • Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau praised the U.S.’s  “limited and focused action” against the airfield in Syria and said the Syrian government’s use of chemical weapons cannot be ignored. “These gruesome attacks cannot be permitted to continue with impunity.”

Obama did nothing

On Tuesday, almost 60 people died in Syria after warplanes dropped bombs filled with chemicals. The number includes women and children. Many suspect President Bashar al-Assad’s regime for the attack.

President Donald Trump condemned the attack, but also ripped into former President Barack Obama for not sticking to his “red line” on Syria:

“Today’s chemical attack in Syria against innocent people including women and children is reprehensible and cannot be ignored by the civilized world,” Mr. Trump said in a statement.

“These heinous actions by the Bashar al-Assad regime are a consequence of the past administration’s weakness and irresolution,” he added. “President Obama said in 2012 that he would establish a ’red line’ against the use of chemical weapons and then did nothing.”

Obama red line Syria

BREAKING: Obama threatened to use force, then did nothing.  Trump just bombed them.

April 6, 2017 ~9 pm:  Several news outlets are announcing that the United States has launched a missile strike on the military airfield in Syria where this week’s chemical attack is believed to have originated.

Update on Trump’s Refugee Ban

A coalition of 12 state attorneys general and one governor has filed a brief with a federal appeals court defending President Trump’s ban on travelers from six Muslim-majority nations.

The group’s filing argues Trump’s executive order regarding immigration and refugees is a legal action within his presidential powers.

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.
