The Real Reason NFL Players Protest

The Real Reason NFL Players Protest

tisThe disturbing sight of team after team in the NFL “taking a knee” during the playing of the National Anthem is a direct result of incitement by former president Obama, his attorney general, Eric Holder and Democrats during the Obama years. Democrat incitement of blacks over alleged rampant racism has continued and intensified since Donald Trump was elected president. It was no surprise that an epidemic of attacks on police ensued, during Obama’s term. On July 7, 2016, five police officers were shot dead by Micah X Johnson in Dallas and nine more were injured. The next morning, a police officer was shot “from behind and critically injured” in the St. Louis suburb of Ballwin, MO, reported the LA Times. Another officer in Valdosta, Georgia was lured by the report of a damaged vehicle when a man opened fire. “The suspect called 911 to report a break-in,” said the Associated Press, “then ambushed and shot the officer.” The officer was shot “multiple times,” Police Chief Brian Childress told the AP. Also that day, in Georgia, “Another officer on patrol became a target when a motorist pulled up and fired at him in Roswell, north of Atlanta,” said the LA Times, “A black Army veteran, Lakeem Keon Scott, targeted police in a shooting Thursday along a highway in Bristol, Tenn., authorities said.” “Preliminarily, the investigation reveals Scott targeted individuals and officers after being troubled by recent incidents involving African Americans and law enforcement officers,” authorities from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said in a statement. On Sunday, July 17, 2016 Fox News reported: At least three law enforcement officers were killed and three others injured in a shooting Sunday in Baton...
Rand Paul’s Quixotic Quest Will Lead to Single Payer

Rand Paul’s Quixotic Quest Will Lead to Single Payer

Call Rand Paul: 202-224- 4343 Rand Paul fantasizes that he can stand on principle by voting against the Graham-Cassidy ObamaCare repeal/replace bill, and there will be no consequences. The bill would replace ObamaCare by repealing its most odious mandates and giving the money it costs the Fed to the states as block grants. But in one week, when the fiscal year ends, the window will close on passing a bill with a simple majority under Reconciliation rules. After that time, we’ll need 8 Dems to help pass a repeal—an impossibility that only a modern-day Don Quixote could believe in. Sen. Paul keeps babbling in interviews about a national group plan—which also won’t be achievable under strict Reconciliation rules and surely won’t get 60 votes, after September 30th. The obvious result is, we’ll be stuck with ObamaCare forevermore. The GOP will be blamed, and rightly so. This is obvious to anyone but Rand. But that’s not all. As ObamaCare fails, the GOP will be forced to help the Democrats shore up the flawed plan. That is going to cost more and more money until the idea will be floated that eliminating insurance companies will save money—something one third of Democrats already favor. There’s a name for that: single payer. That’s been the plan from the start; Harry Reid admitted as much in a 2013 Las Vegas Sun interview: “What we’ve done with ObamaCare is have a step in the right direction, but we’re far from having something that’s going to work forever,” Reid said. When then asked by panelist Steve Sebelius whether he meant ultimately the country would have to...
More Lawfare by the Left Against the Executive Branch

More Lawfare by the Left Against the Executive Branch

“Lawfare” is the use of often-frivolous lawsuits to intimidate, silence and stymie opponents. The absurd suits of blue states against the president, in order to block his immigration orders, are good examples. Here’s yet another reason why Congress should strip the federal courts of jurisdiction over immigration—a power Congress does possess: Lawfare by blue states and DC, fighting to keep DACA. A CNN article on the story includes what may be the most idiotic statement of the year: “I filed suit against President Trump and his administration to protect DACA because Dreamers are just as American as first lady Melania Trump,” New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas said in a statement. This guy is a lawyer? Melania Trump is a citizen, who entered the country legally; the DACA beneficiaries are here only by virtue of an unconstitutional memo from former (and present) community organizer, Barack Obama, who even admitted he lacked the authority to do that. If we can believe CNN, the following states (and DC) are joining in this folly: New Mexico, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington. Although the real strategy is the time-honored tool of the Left: “Let’s just do whatever we please,” supposedly, the grounds that may be used are that President Trump violated the Administrative Procedure Act, which lays out a lengthy process that requires ample notice and time for the public to comment on substantive federal rulemaking,” writes CNN. You may remember that in Texas, et al. v United States, the district court under Judge Hanen held,...
When Ted Kennedy Asked the USSR to Help Fix the 1984 Election Nobody Called It Treason

When Ted Kennedy Asked the USSR to Help Fix the 1984 Election Nobody Called It Treason

The Left-Democrat Axis has immersed America anew in fretful worry about Russia, with the non-story that Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer who claimed to have incriminating info on Hillary Clinton. Who knows—it might have been info on Uranium One. Turned out she only wanted to talk about adoption of Russian children. But people like Tim Kaine, Hillary’s running mate, call it treason. He’s just a bit confused. The definition of treason is: 18 US Code § 2381: Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason. Oddly enough, Mr. Kaine appears to have given aid and comfort to the Muslim Brotherhood, which has stated in writing it intends to destroy America from within: Hillary’s running mate enjoyed the support of the Muslim American Society in his 2005 race for Governor of Virginia, according to DiscoverTheNetworks.org. The MAS describes itself as “a dynamic charitable, religious, social, cultural, and educational, organization.”  But DTN also says the MAS is affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood. In 2007, Kaine appointed MAS president, Esam Omeish to the state’s Immigration Commission. He had been president of the National Muslim Students Association, which DTN identifies as the “first Muslim Brotherhood affiliate to gain a foothold in America.” It appears on the Brotherhood’s list of its 29 “organizations of our friends,” contained in its Explanatory Memorandum, which also states its purpose of “destroying the Western civilization from within.” In September 2011, Kaine spoke at an affair honoring Muslim Brotherhood leader Jamal Barzinji, with a Lifetime Achievement...
