Two Former Army Officers Telegraph the Democrat Plan for Post-Election Chaos

This is the Democrat plan. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise. – Two seditious former Army officers, John Nagl and Paul Yingling, published an opinion piece yesterday laying out what to any ordinary American might seem like a fantasy scenario in which the U.S. military rolls tanks down Pennsylvania Avenue to remove President Donald Trump from office in the event of a hung election outcome.

Their scenario relies on the communist Democrat Party succeeding in extending the “vote count”, i.e., vote fraud efforts in key states all the way through next January 20. In that event, if no clear winner has emerged, the Constitution dictates that the Speaker of the House would become President. These two seditious officers lay out the following set of subsequent events should that happen, as reported by Byron York this morning:

From that, the two retired officers — one of them, Yingling, was a deputy of Gen. H.R. McMaster in the first Gulf War — concoct a scenario in which Milley must order troops into the streets on inauguration day. “The clock will strike 12:01 PM, January 20, 2021, and Donald Trump will be sitting in the Oval Office,” they write. “The street protests will inevitably swell outside the White House, and the ranks of Trump’s private army will grow inside its grounds. The Speaker of the House will declare the Trump presidency at an end, and direct the Secret Service and Federal Marshals to remove Trump from the premises. These agents will realize that they are outmanned and outgunned by Trump’s private army, and the moment of decision will arrive. At this moment of constitutional crisis, only two options remain. Under the first, U.S. military forces escort the former president from the White House grounds. Trump’s little green men, so intimidating to lightly armed federal law enforcement agents, step aside and fade away, realizing they would not constitute a good morning’s work for a brigade of the 82nd Airborne. Under the second, the U.S. military remains inert while the Constitution dies. The succession of government is determined by extralegal violence between Trump’s private army and street protesters; Black Lives Matter Plaza becomes Tahrir Square.”

[End]

York follows that bit of treasonous advocacy by saying “Whew. This is quite simply, fantastical, over-heated, crazy stuff.”

But it’s not. It is the actual Democrat Party plan for November through January.

With all due respect to Mr. York, what does he think the communist Democrat hyper-focus on mail-in ballots is all about? What does he think the communist Democrat efforts to instutionalize the clearly un-American concept of “vote harvesting” is all about? What does he think the advocacy by Kamala Harris and other prominent Democrats of ensuring illegal aliens get to vote is all about? What does he think the unending riots in Democrat-controlled big cities are all about? What does he think the constant media-generated hysteria over the China virus is all about?

Even more to the point, what does he think the communist Democrat drumbeat – led for the last year by the despicable losers Stacey Abrams and Beto O’Rourke – that the upcoming elections will be illegitimate because the Republicans are engaging in some nebulous, undefined concept of “voter suppression” is all about? Not “might be” – will be.

It is all about creating electoral chaos. It is all about creating the illusion of not having a clear winner even though we will almost certainly have a clear winner on the morning of November 4. It is all about creating the pretense for endless legal challenges to election results filed by the Obama army of Lawfare lawyers in the hopes that a clearly compromised Chief Justice John Roberts will ultimately side with the leftist minority on the court to simply declare the dementia-addled Joe Biden the “winner” amid a fog of media-created chaos.

This opinion piece from these two treason monkeys is not some fantasy: It is in fact a warning shot across the bow targeted at the current military leadership, advising them what the plan really is and intimidating them to follow along.

The communist Democrats have decided that the time for consolidating their century-long efforts to destroy the American Republic is now, this year. Everything they have done to undermine the legitimacy of the Trump Administration for the last four years clearly points to that reality.

This is the plan. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise. Get ready.

That is all.

Yes, Justice Roberts, There are “Obama Judges” and “Bush Judges”

A tale of two judges. – Chief Justice John Roberts – the clearly-compromised former conservative jurist who now does the bidding of the progressive left whenever they demand it, apparently – famously stated in 2017 that there are no “Obama judges” or “Bush judges,” there are only federal judges. That, of course, is abject bullshit, but hey, it’s what the Chief does these days.

Late this week, we saw the dichotomy between the kinds of decisions we get out of Bush/Reagan/Trump judges and Obama/Clinton judges in two decisions related the ongoing rioting taking place in Portland. It is a classic tale of an Obama judge applying his own personal baises as a means of fomenting more chaos in our society and a Bush judge doing his best to properly interpret the law and put out the fires.

The latter decision came from the Bush appointed, District Court Judge Michael Mosman, who rejected the specious filing of Soros-funded Oregon Attorney General Emily Rosenblum. The despicable Ms. Rosenblum was asking for a temporary restraining order that would deny the right of federal law enforcement officials to continue to protect Portland’s federal courthouse and other federal property from the rioters, who have attempted to burn the courthouse down many times in recent weeks.

Michael W. Mosman - Wikipedia

Judge Michael Mosman

From a report at Red State:

The complaint — filed by her on behalf of all Oregon citizens based on her in parens patriae status in relationship to those citizens — alleged violations of the citizens First, Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights under the Constitution.  The factual allegations were that unknown federal agents, without names or insignias our their uniforms, and driving unmarked vehicles, were detaining and arresting Oregon citizens off the streets of Portland away from the federal courthouse, without probable cause.

In denying the TRO, Judge Mosman questioned whether the Attorney General had standing to bring the action she had brought.  The parens patriae status she claimed — meaning the government as legal protector of citizens — is rarely invoked, and likely inapplicable where, as here, citizens wrongly arrested or detained by federal agents could sue on their own behalf for violation of their civil rights.  Judge Mosman noted that the Attorney General could bring suit to vindicate a legal interest that is specific to the state itself, but the complaint filed by the Attorney General states no such claim.

The Court noted that no protester was a Plaintiff.  The Court noted that the lawsuit sought no remedy or damages on behalf of anyone claiming to have been harmed by the actions of the federal agents.  Instead the lawsuit the extraordinary remedy of prohibiting future law enforcement action by agents of the federal government.

The Opinion calls out the Oregon Attorney General for writing a complaint in a fashion that suggests numerous protesters have being seized off the streets of Portland, but in support of which at the time of the hearing the Attorney General was able to produce evidence of only two events.  There was evidence of a young man named Pettibone having been arrested and taken to the federal building, but he was never charged.  The evidence, however, was limited to a declaration by Pettibone as to what happened.  There was no evidence to corroborate his claims.

[End]

That was the Bush Judge decision.

The decision from the Obama Judge – District Judge Michael Simon, who is the nephew of famous playwrite Neil Simon and looks just like him – came late on Thursday. In his decision, Judge Simon issued a TRO prohibiting federal law enforcement from using tear gas or any other non-lethal force that might impact members of the press or “legal observers,” many of whom are radical leftists who have embeded themselves in with the rioters.

Michael H. Simon - Wikipedia

Judge Michael Simon

Well, you can see where this is going, right?

From a report at Politico:

A judge has barred federal law enforcement officers dealing with long-running protests and unrest in Portland from using force against journalists and legal observers trying to document the run-ins between activists and the authorities.

Ina temporary restraining order issued on Thursday night, U.S. District Court Judge Michael Simon also declared reporters, photographers and legal observers exempt from any directives issued to the general public to disperse from areas where protests are taking place.

Simon said there were strong indications [Note the expression of his own opinion absent any real evidence that this is true] that journalists were being targeted by the authorities and were not simply incidentally caught up in legitimate efforts to quell violence or vandalism.

“Plaintiffs’ declarations describe situations including that they were identifiable as press, were not engaging in unlawful activity or protesting, were not standing near protesters, and yet were subject to violence by federal agents,” Simon wrote. “Contrary to the Federal Defendants’ arguments, this evidence does not support that the force used on Plaintiffs were ‘unintended consequences’ of crowd control.”

[End]

So, guess what happened Friday evening? Check it out:

Boy, there’s a shocker, huh?

Thus does Judge Michael Simon – an Obama appointee – very predictably reveal himself to be an active participant in the radical left “resistance.”

But hey, there’s no difference between “Obama judges” and “Bush judges.” Just ask John Roberts.

*sigh*

RBG Has Had Liver Cancer Since May, and the Media Obsession Over Kayleigh McEnany’s Tabs

The woman is a cancer-breeding and cancer-killing machine. – Think about it: How many people have you ever heard of who have had lung cancer, stomach cancer, pancreatic cancer and liver cancer over a span of less than a decade and lived to tell about it?

That’s the record that the extraordinarily enduring Ruth Bader Ginsburg has now racked up in recent years. Today, she announced that she has been receiving treatments for liver cancer since May and the Supreme Court has managed to cover that little fact up until now. She also claimed that her hospitalization earlier this week had no relation to her latest battle with cancer, but that seems hard to believe.

From a report at Fox News:

“On May 19, I began a course of chemotherapy to treat a recurrence of cancer,” Ms Ginsburg said in her statement.

“The chemotherapy course… is yielding positive results,” she added. “My most recent scan on 7 July indicated [a] significant reduction of the liver lesions and no new disease.

“I am tolerating chemotherapy well and am encouraged by the success of my current treatment,” she said. “I will continue bi-weekly chemotherapy to keep my cancer at bay.”

Supreme Court justices serve for life or until they choose to retire, and supporters have expressed concern that if anything were to happen to Ms Ginsburg a more conservative judge might replace her while President Donald Trump, a Republican, remains in office.

“I have often said I would remain a member of the Court as long as I can do the job full steam,” Ms Ginsburg said in the statement. “I remain fully able to do that.”

[End]

Everyone should wish the Justice well in this latest battle – there is nothing more terrible than having to deal with cancer, and she has established perhaps the most amazing record in human history of beating forms of the disease that kill a very high percentage of those who suffer from them.

That having been said, the truth about her last statement in that excerpt – “I remain fully able to do that” – is that she is only able to remain nominally on the Court because staff and interns perform 99% of the actual work for her. In that, she is certainly far from the first justice to retain a seat in that way, but unlike her survival skills, it is not something anyone should admire.

The fact that this ailment was kept a secret from a public that deserves to know is also nothing to admire, but not at all surprising for an institution led by a living chameleon, Chief Justice John Roberts.

Meanwhile, in REAL news… – There is no new low to which the members of the White House press corps will not stoop.

Today, a Reuters photographer made it his job to invade the privacy of Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, worming his way close enough to the podium to get a shot of the tabs on her famous briefing notebook that she brings into every meeting with the assembled enemies of the people.

Here’s the shot:

White House photographer snapped photo of the press secretary's ...

All the corrupt, blue-check media hacks on Twitter are making a huge deal about the tabs titled “Hate” and “Absurd,” but the obvious explanations for those are easy:

– “Hate” contains answers to any question posed by PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor; and

– “Absurd” contains notes that describe the preening behavior of Jim Acosta.

This is not hard, folks.

The Evening Wrap: A Key Supreme Court Decision and Jake Tapper Gets Something Right

Good John Roberts showed up for court today. – The Supreme Court issued a decision today that could have huge implications for the November elections. On a 6-3 vote, the Court refused to reconsider a lower court ruling that prevents Florida from restoring the voting rights of convicted felons who have not satisfied all the terms of their convictions, including fines and other financial penalties. Liberal Stephen Breyer voted along with the very unreliable “conservative” majority.

Plaintiffs had sued the state for denying the vote to felons who had served their time but failed to pay up. Under Florida law passed in 2018, felons are able to regain their voting rights when they have fulfilled all terms of their convictions.

This decision by the high court means that roughly 1 million Florida felons who have failed to satisfy their financial obligations could be unable to vote in November. Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the news media are obviously hardest hit by today’s decision.

This is a big deal.

That time when even Jake Tapper admitted kids need to go back to school this fall… – Fake Jake Tapper chided Trump critics on Twitter today to “be fair” after his colleagues in the corrupt corporate news media intentionally misquoted Kayleigh McEnany’s remarks related to COVID-19, science and returning to school at today’s White House press briefing. Tapper also corrected Sanjay Gupta when the fake doctor attempted to perpetrate the same falsehoods on Tapper’s CNN program this afternoon.

From a story at Mediaite:

Jake Tapper corrected Dr. Sanjay Gupta over his critique of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s “science should not stand in the way” comment on his CNN show Thursday afternoon.

“The science should not stay in the way of this,” McEnany said in a press briefing Thursday in reference to school openings, before adding, “The science is on our side here. We encourage for localities in states to just simply follow the science. Open our schools.”

Following outrage around the comments, Tapper encouraged people to read McEnany’s full quote, writing in a tweet, “She’s arguing that the science is on the side of those who want to open them, she cites a JAMA study. I’m not taking a position on the matter but be fair.”

After playing a clip of McEnany’s statement, Tapper asked Gupta, “Where is the science on this? Because I know some of the studies, one of the JAMA studies that she referred to, what’s your reaction as a physician and parent of three children?”

“Well, first of all, I don’t think you ever want to say the science should not stand in the way of this,” Gupta responded. “I don’t know exactly what she was referring to by that or if she was just misspeaking. That sounded like an alternate facts sort of moment there.”

“If I could just say, Sanjay,” Tapper interrupted. “I think she was trying to say the science shouldn’t stand in the way because the science is on our side. I don’t know that all of the science is on their side. Certainly, this White House, their respect for science knows bounds, let’s put it that way. But I think that’s what she was getting at.”

[End]

Let’s be clear: The science is 100% on the side of reopening and getting our nation’s kids back to school this fall. There is ZERO, ZIP, NADA “science” that indicates otherwise. With pretty much every other country on earth dealing with reality and real science and reopening their schools, the only reason why any schools at any level in our country will refuse to open in the fall is pure, rank, smelly partisan politics. Dr. Anthony Fauci and others who continue to purvey panic porn and using our children as political footballs should be condemned and shunned by civilized society.

Even Jake Tapper understands the truth here. It is rather amazing his overlords at CNN haven’t shut him up about it yet.

Everyone Calm Down: Today’s SCOTUS Decision was a Big WIN for Trump

President Donald Trump went on an angry Twitter spree this morning after a 7-2 Supreme Court decision ruled on very narrow grounds that a grand jury can subpoena a president’s tax records. Here’s what @RealDonaldTrump had to say:

 

Now, of course the President is right about the absurdly disparate treatment he has received from this Court, and obviously also correct about the criminal nature of the entire Obama Administration.

But what he apparently missed before he went on this Twitter spurt is that today’s decision by the Court is actually a significant victory for him, one that sends the case back to the lower court and basically ensures that his tax records will remain confidential at least through November, and possibly forever. Not only that, but the case is also a loss for Democrats in congress and their politically-motivated pursuit of those tax records.

Here is how George Washington University Constitutional Law Professor Jonathan Turley explained it on his own Twitter feed:

Look, it’s very easy to understand the President’s anger and frustration about these never-ending battles he has had to engage in with the Deep State. But hey, he just keeps on WINNING those battles, even when, as in this case, he doesn’t even realize he has won.

Ted Cruz: “DOJ MUST Ensure” Ghislaine Maxwell Remains Among the Living

Let’s make sure all those security cameras are actually turned on this time, hmmmm? – Texas Senator Ted Cruz laid down a bar for Attorney General William Barr and his people to meet in the case involving Ghislaine Maxwell this morning:

Note the quotes Cruz places around the phrase “hang himself” – clearly communicating that he shares our skepticism about the official government story around the killing of Jeffrey Epstein while in federal custody last year.

Keeping Maxwell safe likely will indeed be a challenge given that a convenient case of “COVID-19” has been added to the list of ways she could be offed or find her demise. Why, who wouldn’t believe it if she were to suddenly grow very ill and be unable to fight off a virus with a mortality rate of somewhere around 1/2 of 1 percent, a rate that continues to go lower with each passing day of grossly inflated “case” numbers being reported by hospitals around the country?

If you believe social media, the BBC and probably other media outlets are already testing their future stories and headlines about poor Ghislaine’s fight against the viral gift from China:

Image

Folks on Twitter are swearing that story really did momentarily go up at the BBC’s website today, although I can’t vouch for that. But would it surprise you?

Think about the names of the powerful people who are threatened by Maxwell’s status as a federal prisoner who might start singing like a canary any day in order to avoid spending life in the pokey:

Bill and Hillary Clinton

Prince Andrew of Britain

Billionaire Mike Bloomberg

Bill Gates

Some guy named John Roberts who may or may not be the same John Roberts currently serving as chief justice of the Supreme Court

These are but a few of the hundreds of very prominent and extremely wealthy people who have been rumored to be pals with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein himself, remember, lasted less than a month before he very conveniently committed “suicide” by executing a maneuver to hang himself in his cell that in reality would have been physically impossible.

While Epstein was the principal in the pedophilia and sex-trafficking ring, Maxwell was the facilitator and thus, no less a threat to Epstein’s clientele.

The Daily Caller reports today that one of Epstein’s, ahem, ‘business associates’ is telling anyone who will listen that the FBI has known of Maxwell’s whereabouts for months and that he expects she will “snap in two seconds” at the prospect of spending years in prison:

“They knew where she was all the time [in New Hampshire],” Hoffenberg told the publication. “It was a question if America was going to take the case or not, now America has made up its mind to take the case.”

Hoffenberg reportedly maintains contact with Maxwell’s spokesperson, and told the Sun that Maxwell did not think she would be arrested. (RELATED: FBI Knew Of Allegations Against Ghislaine Maxwell As Early As 1996, Accuser Says. It Took 24 Years To Arrest Her)

“If they keep her in prison, she’ll crack in two seconds,” he said. “She’s not able to take that sort of cruel punishment, prison is too tough and hard, she’ll have to be in solitary confinement, and she’ll snap.”

“She’s going to cooperate and be very important,” he added, before noting that her words might implicate high profile people including the UK’s Prince Andrew. “Andrew may be very concerned, and there’s a lot of people very worried, a lot of powerful people been named [in the scandal], and she knows everything.”

[End]

Senator Cruz understands what the deal is here, and he wants Attorney General Barr to understand that. Honestly, if Maxwell dies mysteriously in prison in the coming weeks, then those of us who have been sitting quietly as America’s cities have been looted and burned might need to do some burning and rioting of our own.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Tulsa Curfew, Portland Chaos, CBS Wants a Race War and Hating John Bolton

Tulsa’s Mayor starts prepping for a riot. – With reports flying around about Antifa and Black Lives Matter already busing in out-of-state agitators to stage riots in his city this Saturday, Republican Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum declared a state of emergency Thursday and established a 10:00 p.m. curfew that will remain in effect through Saturday.

Twitter predictably erupted with howls of outrage about the hundreds of Trump supporters who have been camping out at the rally site since Monday being forced to move, but the Mayor’s action here is entirely rational.

As a part of his declaration, Mayor Bynum states that ““I have received information from the Tulsa Police Department and other law enforcement agencies that shows that individuals from organized groups who have been involved in destructive and violent behavior in other States are planning to travel to the city of Tulsa for purposes of causing unrest in and around the rally.”

This move by these two Soros-funded domestic terrorist groups to create what will almost certainly become riots without firm police control is entirely predictable. I’d have frankly been stunned if they didn’t engage in this behavior – it’s right out of the Soros/Alinsky/Democrat Party playbook.

In the emergency declaration, the Mayor declares that the implementation of the curfew is necessary so that his police department has time today and tomorrow to properly secure the area around the downtown arena in order to create the best conditions for the prevention of the rioting, looting and burning that we have seen in Democrat-controlled cities all over the country in recent weeks.

Bottom line: This is what responsible mayors do when they know that outside agitators are coming into their city to stage riots. Instead of whining about this move on Twitter, Trump fans should be celebrating the fact that the people of Tulsa have been smart enough to avoid putting Democrats in control of their city.

This is what they want to do to the Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial. – Meanwhile, in the Democrat-run city of Portland , Oregon, chaos continues to reign. Take a look at this:

Do not doubt that they would love to do the same to the monuments in Washington, DC. Antifa and Black Lives Matter have in recent weeks distributed flyers to their supporters that include instructions on ways to undermine the foundation of the Washington Monument to cause it to topple over just as this statue was toppled last night.  These people are indistinguishable from ISIS and the Taliban with their goals of erasing history and the monuments to it.

“CBS wants a race war.” – That was the statement made by Caleb Hull yesterday, but he might as well have included pretty much every corrupt national news outlet. Here’s the tweet:

Hull was reacting to an extremely and intentionally misleading headline published by CBS News yesterday describing an incident in which white police officers shot another black man. Here’s an excerpt from a story in the DC Examiner about it:

CBS News drew criticism Wednesday for a headline on a story involving police shooting and killing a black man without mentioning the man allegedly opened fire first.

“Deputies kill half-brother of black man found hanged in park,” a CBS headline posted on Twitter Wednesday read, referring to the death of Terron Jammal Boone.

Boone was the half-brother of Robert Fuller, a black man found hanging in a park on June 10 in what was first believed to be a suicide before the coroner walked back that conclusion.

The tweet doesn’t include the police report that states officers attempted to stop Boone, who was wanted for kidnapping, spousal assault, and assault with a deadly weapon, at which point he jumped out of his vehicle and opened fire on officers before they shot and killed him.

[End]

As is so often the case, it isn’t what an evil, corrupt news outlet did say that’s the problem so much as what it left out.

The fake, corrupt news media is an existential threat to our nation’s survival. This CBS headline/story is but one of a thousand examples we see of this with every passing week.

In case you missed it… – Chief Justice John Roberts betrayed America once again yesterday, siding with the liberal minority on the court in yet another atrocity of a 5-4 decision DACA. Read all about it at this link.

So, you hate John Bolton? Welcome to the party, pal. – Everyone in Washington hates John Bolton. At least, that’s what the very lefist folks at Politico are telling us this morning in a very interesting expose’ on the feckless warmonger who is hawking a new book this week.

Here’s an excerpt:

John Bolton has few friends left in D.C.

A day after excerpts from his bombshell new book emerged excoriating President Donald Trump, the former national security adviser has managed to turn everyone against him.

Republicans say he’s a disgruntled sensationalist who’s merely trying to make money off his book. And Democrats, once buoyed by Bolton’s turn against Trump, now say he is “unpatriotic” for documenting his claims in a book rather than testifying before Congress during Trump’s impeachment inquiry.

Several Republicans this week took direct shots at Bolton, a neoconservative once heralded as the gold standard for the GOP on foreign policy and national security issues.

Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) said Bolton is “somebody who thought he was being hired to be the commander in chief, and he wasn’t.” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said he found it hard to take seriously “anyone who claims to have witnessed treason and obstruction of justice and tells about it in a book.”

“Every meeting I’ve been in with John Bolton, he views himself as the smartest person in the room,” added Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), the No. 3 GOP leader. “He thinks he should be president, speaker of the House and chief justice of the Supreme Court all at the same time.”

The Evening Wrap: John Roberts Betrays America Again

Dick Cheney was trending on Twitter today, so I had to go figure out why. So often, a famous person’s name trends on that social media platform when they say something stupid or die, and either was certainly possible with the ex-Vice President, who has dealt with major heart issues for twenty-plus years.

As it turned out, Cheney was trending due to this presidential tweet:

The term “shotgun blasts” of course brings to mind Cheney’s infamous South Texas bird hunting hunting incident in which Cheney blasted attorney Harry Whittington in the face with his own shotgun. The incident inspired unending conspiracy theories, but all involved claimed it was an accident.

President Trump of course was referring to today’s latest judicial atrocity authored by Chief Justice John Roberts, who sided in a completely incoherent decision with the liberal minority in ruling that Barack Obama’s executive order on DACA is apparently now unassailable law.  Ok, it didn’t go that far, but the court did rule that President Trump cannot immediately rescind Obama’s order because – get this – the administration did not provide adequate justification for doing so.

Thus does Roberts demonstrate his clearly compromised status one more time, joining the court’s liberal wing in usurping the roles of both the legislative and executive branches of government. Conveniently, Roberts’ decision does not advise the administration as to what it means by “inadequate,” meaning this political football could just go back and forth for years to come.

In his dissent, Clarence Thomas noted the grossly political nature of this decision in blunt terms:

“Today’s decision must be recognized for what it is: an effort to avoid a politically controversial but legally correct decision,” Justice Thomas wrote. “The court could have made clear that the solution respondents seek must come from the legislative branch.”

“In doing so,” he wrote, “it has given the green light for future political battles to be fought in this court rather than where they rightfully belong — the political branches.”

“Without any purported delegation of authority from Congress and without undertaking a rulemaking, DHS unilaterally created a program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA),” he wrote, adding later that the program was implemented “without statutory authority and without following the [Administrative Procedures Act’s] required procedures.”

“Then-Attorney General Sessions correctly concluded that this ultra vires program should be rescinded. These cases could—and should—have ended with a determination that his legal conclusion was correct,” Thomas said. “Without grounding its position in either the APA or precedent, the majority declares that DHS was required to overlook DACA’s obvious legal deficiencies and provide additional policy reasons and justifications before restoring the rule of law.”

Thomas also said that even though the reason DHS gave for the rescinding the policy — that DACA was not done under the proper legal authority — was more than enough, it wasn’t even required to do that.

“Nothing in the APA suggests that DHS was required to spill any ink justifying the rescission of an invalid legislative rule, let alone that it was required to provide policy justifications beyond acknowledging that the program was simply unlawful from the beginning,” he said.

The justice said that DACA “fundamentally altered the immigration laws,” creating “a new category of aliens who, as a class, became exempt from statutory removal procedures and it gave those aliens temporary lawful presence.”

[End]

So, one more in a growing line of atrocious decisions in which Roberts plays turncoat. With Gorsuch also increasingly looking to be a replay of Anthony Kennedy, the GOP record of getting supreme court appointments about 50% right remains in place.

Pray for Trump’s re-election, because he’ll need at least two more tries to save the country from these despots in black robes.

Saturday News Roundup: Trump Fires WHO, Russia Hoax Dead, Roberts Goes Rogue Again

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Trump to WHO: You’re Fired! – President Donald Trump, outraged at the role the WHO played in helping China’s communist government conceal the real nature of the Wuhan Virus for several months, took final action with that corrupt globalist organization on Friday, completely removing the United States from its membership:

“China has total control over the World Health Organization despite only paying $40 million per year compared to what the United States has been paying, which is approximately $450 million a year,” Trump said during a news conference in the White House Rose Garden.

“The world needs answers from China on the virus. We must have transparency. Why is it that China shut off infected people from Wuhan to all other parts of China?” he added. “It didn’t go to Beijing, it went nowhere else, but they allowed them to freely travel throughout the world, including Europe and the United States.”

Naturally, RINO limp-wrists like Lamar Alexander were upset and disturbed by the move, because of course they were.

But then, WHO cares what they think? (See what I did there?)

The Russia Hoax breathes its last, dying gasp. – Thanks to the efforts of Ric Grenell and new Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, the Russia Hoax is now in hospice care, breathing its last, desperate breaths.

As promised, DNI Ratcliffe released the full transcripts and FBI summaries of the various calls General Mike Flynn conducted with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the 2016 transition period. His action came after Grenell had fully declassified the documents early this week. The calls show exactly what we should have expected: An incoming National Security Advisor holding calls with his Russian counterpart and having preliminary discussions on areas of mutual interest between our two countries.

The December 29, 2016 call that the Obama Coup Cabal and its corrupt media support group have claimed to be so concerning turns out to be a big nothing burger. During that call, when Kislyak raises the likelihood of Russia responding to Obama’s earlier expulsion of dozens of Russian “diplomats”, i.e., spies, Flynn advises him exactly as John F. Kennedy advised Nikita Kruschev during the Cuban Missile Crisis: to avoid ‘going nuclear’, and to respond in a “reciprocal” manner.

Naturally, the corrupt news media that has spent the last 4 solid years pushing the Russia hoax is today trying to convince you all that Flynn’s reply here is some sort of treasonous act. That is, of course, utterly absurd.

There is nothing wrong with that call, and we now know with 100% certainty that the Obama Administration – including Obama himself – went after Flynn for the simple fact that Flynn knows where all the bodies are buried with relation to Obama’s efforts to prop up Iran. Those corrupt bastards sold their souls and our national security to the Islamic state, and they could not countenance having Flynn as Trump’s National Security Advisor.

The most poignant part of reading the transcripts is that we see Flynn and Kislyak discussing the very real areas of mutual interest the U.S. and Russia had at the time related to destroying ISIS, stabilizing Syria and dealing with the Iranian threat. By mounting the Russia hoax, the Obama Coup Cabal and its media support team threw all of that potential good away, making it impossible for the Trump Administration to truly engage with Russia on those matters, and making our nation less secure in the name of protecting Obama, John Kerry and everyone else involved in the Iran deal.

This must not go unpunished. The Russia Hoax is dead, and it is now time for William Barr and John Durham to start extracting some justice.

Meet John Roberts, the new Anthony Kennedy. – Just when Americans all over the country are getting ready to go back to church, Chief Justice John Roberts decides to side with the communists.

In a 5-4 decision late Friday evening, Roberts sided with the four “liberal” – as the corrupt media likes to call them – justices in upholding the draconian, science-devoid restrictions on religious freedom being imposed by California Governor Gavin Newsom. Here’s the key passage from the decision:

Although California’s guidelines place restrictions on
places of worship, those restrictions appear consistent with
the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment. Similar
or more severe restrictions apply to comparable secular
gatherings, including lectures, concerts, movie showings,
spectator sports, and theatrical performances, where large
groups of people gather in close proximity for extended periods of time. And the Order exempts or treats more leniently only dissimilar activities, such as operating grocery
stores, banks, and laundromats, in which people neither
congregate in large groups nor remain in close proximity for
extended periods.

[End]

Thus does the majority of the U.S. Supreme Court uphold dramatic restrictions on the absolute freedom of religion guaranteed in the First Amendment by equating your church, synagogue, temple or mosque to the local Kiwanis Club.

If you are not outraged by this, I really don’t know what to say to you.

That is all.
