Alan Dershowitz: The Stalinist Democrats are Making up Crimes

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Those who dare speak the truth invariably become the first casualties of any communist revolution. – Alan Dershowitz, for those who do not know, is a very liberal longtime professor of constitutional law at Harvard University law school. For years following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and subsequent dissolution of the Soviet Union, conservatives referred to Harvard Law School as the last bastion of communism on the face of the earth. That all ended early in the 21st century, as communism began making its comeback within the ranks of the Democrat Party.

But I digress. Back to Dershowitz.

For many years, Prof. Dershowitz was a frequent contributor for both CNN and Fox News. His appearances have now gone away for the most part as both cable news channels have shied away from airing the views of liberals who actually speak the truth about the never-ending coup mounted by the Democrat/media/deep state Axis of Disinformation. In fact, Dershowitz says he has has been banned entirely on CNN. Big surprise there.

But Dershowitz still finds his way into the media anyway. On Sunday, he appeared on the John Catsimatidis radio show  to talk about the fake impeachment circus being run by Adam Schiff and San Fran Nan. During the course of this interview, the longtime registered Democrat made some startling accusations about the current leaders of his Party, comparing them to Joseph Stalin and the head of Stalin’s KGB, Lavrentiy Beria.

Here is some of the transcript of that interview [emphasis added is mine]:

They’re very scary. They’re very frightening to any civil libertarian. Whether you’re a Democrat or Republican; whether you come from New York or the middle of the country, you should be frightened by efforts to try to create crimes out of nothing. The latest twist was people on television, particularly CNN and MSNBC, are saying that if the president or somebody else was to name the whistleblower in the Ukrainian situation, that person would be guilty of a crime. I said in the afternoon yesterday, searching the federal criminal statutes from beginning to end, I couldn’t find the crime.

It reminds me of Lavrentiy Beria, head of the KGB, said to Stalin, he said, “Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.” Which he really meant, I’ll make up the crime.

And so the Democrats are now making up crimes. First they made up collusion. “Ahh! Collusion. It’s a crime!” I searched the statute books. There’s no crime of collusion except when businessmen get together to collude against the anti-trust laws, but no crime of collusion with a foreign country.

Then after that, they said “obstruction of Congress.”No, no, no, no, no. Obstruction of justice is a crime; obstruction of Congress is part of our system of checks and balances. If you get a subpoena from Congress, and you’re the president or in the executive department, and you think you have an executive privilege, you have an obligation not to respond. That’s not “obstruction of Congress,” that’s checks and balances under our Constitution.

So what we’re seeing, in a desperate effort to try to find crimes against President Trump: they’re just making it up. And that means we are all in danger, because if we can make up a crime — Congressman Cohen of Tennessee said that me and others who appear on Fox essentially were co-conspirators; we’re in on it. He’s now threatening people who are commentators, a liberal Democrat like me, who’s a commentator, that we’re in on it, that we’re co-conspirators. It is such a dangerous development to civil liberties.

The ACLU should be up in arms, but they’re silent.

[End]

Well, of course the ACLU is silent. The ACLU is just another Marxist organization dedicated to undermining the rule of law in the United States, a reality that Dershowitz can’t seem to bring himself to accept. The ACLU only weighs in to promote “freedoms” that serve to undermine the foundations of American liberty and freedom.

So, you won’t see this world-renowned law professor on CNN again, because CNN shares the same goals held by the ACLU. And you won’t see him on Fox News much, if at all, anymore, because those idiots are too busy promoting the rants of the pea-brained hack, Andrew Napolitano.

This is how things work in any communist society: The first thing you do is silence authority figures and experts who refuse to toe the party line. Once that has been accomplished, the media outlets all know that the next step is to silence any journalists who facilitate the airing of those contrarian views.

Management at CNN has spent the last four years systematically ridding its airwaves of all liberal authority figures who dare to speak any truth about the Democrat Party, replacing them all with more cookie-cutter talking points monkeys. The current management at Fox News is now going about doing the same, getting rid of Dershowitz and other liberal truth-tellers and replacing them with talking points monkeys like the nitwit Marie Harf and the corrupt Donna Brazile.

We should fully expect the great Mollie Hemingway to become the next casualty of the Fox purge. Hemingway has been a frequent contributor on Fox for years now, but as we noted yesterday at the Campaign Update, she broke Fox’s idiotic wall of omerta against speaking the name of fake whistleblower Eric Ciaramella on-air on Sunday. The cable channel’s leftist management will now come under pressure from their peers to either punish Hemingway or face not being invited to all the best cocktail and dinner parties on the Upper East Side for the foreseeable future.

And you know how the rich, white lefties are about their cocktail and dinner parties: Prof. Dershowitz hasn’t been invited to one in years.

That is all.

It Was Border Security Action Week at the White House

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

I had no idea this was a thing. – As I sit here writing this piece, Fox & Friends is carrying a report of a pregnant mother who got mad at her little kid when he popped her “gender reveal” balloon.  Yes, friends, there is apparently such a thing as “gender reveal” balloons.  The balloon in the video is a huge black thing that, when the little kid popped it, was revealed to be filled with pink confetti.

If I understand this “report” correctly, the young mother was on her way to an actual, real “gender reveal” party – which is also apparently a thing now – where the idea would be to pop the damn balloon and fill someone else’s home with that gross pink confetti as her means of letting everyone know she would be giving birth to a girl.  What, you couldn’t just send everyone an email?

My goodness.

Well, that escalated quickly. – In Thursday’s Campaign Update, I advised you all that the ordering of National Guard troops to help patrol the southern border would not be the only executive action President Trump would take to beef up border security.  One additional action I told you to expect him to take was to rescind the order by George W. Bush that implemented the so-called “catch and release” policy, which forces immigration officials to release illegal immigrants into the general population while they await a formal hearing, a hearing for which almost none of them actually show up.

It took the President exactly one day to fulfill that prediction, as he signed a memo last night ordering an end to this idiotic policy, and instructing Defense Secretary James Mattis to ” produce a list of military facilities that could be used to detain illegal immigrants.”  You can be sure the fake news media and Democrat Party already met overnight to crank out their “concentration camp” narrative to describe this new detention policy.  Because that’s what our fake news media does.

Friday was a very busy day with other efforts to beef up border security, as the Trump Administration acts to fill the gaping national security void left by a recalcitrant congress.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions directed U.S. attorneys in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California to prosecute all cases – not just the relative handful currently taken on – of illegal border crossers “to the extent practicable.”

This direction by the AG leaves much discretion up to the various U.S. attorneys, so we can anticipate the few remaining Obama holdovers in those states to ignore it, but it will no doubt result in increased enforcement of immigration laws, which will in turn certainly have a dampening effect on the number of attempted border crossings. When your country is literally being invaded, any action to increase security is a welcome one.

Naturally, though, the social justice warrior community was predictably outraged by the AG’s directive.   Cecillia Wang, a deputy legal director at the anti-American ACLU, was quoted as saying “This will be assembly-line justice, where large numbers of defendants are forced through the system without adequate time to consult counsel.”

Yeah, you know what?  I got no problem with that.  No problem at all.  Again, our country is being invaded by drug dealers, terrorists, and child- and sex-traffickers, and it is long past time the situation be taken seriously.  These are not U.S. citizens we are dealing with here.  These are invaders who knowingly and intentionally break our laws, and “assembly-line justice” is all the justice they’re entitled to.  More than they’re entitled to, actually.

In addition to that action by the Justice Department, the Departments of Homeland Security and Defense announced late Friday evening that the first 500 national guard troops, along with supporting equipment, vehicles and helicopters, are already on their way to their new border assignments.  To supplement the federal action, Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey announced they’d be sending a combined 400 national guard troops to the border by their own orders.

New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez has not yet let it be known whether or not she will become part of the seditious “resistance” and work against the President’s plans to beef up border security, but California Governor Jerry Brown very predictably said he will not cooperate with any national guard deployments from his state.

Governor Brown’s gesture of opposition is ultimately a futile one, given that the POTUS has absolute authority to simply nationalize National Guard troops in any state and deploy them on his order.  But engaging in futile and seditious gestures is what California’s state government is all about these days, so no one was surprised by Brown’s latest unpatriotic announcement.  One can only hope Gov. Martinez will not lower her own state to the California standard.

Regardless, the Trump Administration’s actions to beef up border security without any help from congress this week have been swift and decisive.  And as the Campaign Update has predicted and chronicled throughout the week, they all started with a couple of presidential tweets last Saturday morning.

If you get your news from the mainstream fake news media, all of these actions came as a surprise to you, just as they came as a surprise to all the fake journalists.  Some things never change.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.
