Trump not a big fan of Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments

Civil asset forfeiture is the power of government to seize property suspected of being produced by, or involved in, criminal activity based only on the suspicion of such activity, even before being charged or convicted of a crime. There is…

Sessions Confirmed; Nasty Fauxahontas Fails In Bogus Race Card Attempt

Senator Jeff Sessions was confirmed as Attorney General, but not before Fauxahontas, prog-fascist heroine and the senior senator from Massachusetts made a particularly nasty attempt at impugning the reputation of a far more honest and accomplished huma… . . . → Read More: Sessions Confirmed; Nasty Fauxahontas Fails In Bogus Race Card Attempt

Democrats hoping for disaster

By not confirming President Trump’s national security team the first day in office, Democrats are signaling that their resistance, aka their political stunt, takes precedence over national security. That’s a disgusting signal to send. It’s one thing to not confirm Rex Tillerson immediately. There were legitimate questions about him. It’s quite another to not confirm […]

Draining the swamp directly into the White House

Much has been made of Trump’s promise to “drain the swamp” in Washington, a clever way of saying that he will get rid of the business-as-usual establishment politicians responsible for turning government into the disaster it has become. Unfortunately, when…

Testifying or speechifying?

Cory Booker didn’t testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s confirmation hearing yesterday. In article after article, TV segment after TV segment, pundits and announcers insisted that Sen. Booker testified. This article is one such article that fits that description. Caitlin Huey-Burns wrote that “one could almost mark January 11, 2017 as the day […]

More misguided thinking

This article contains one of the most stunning political quotes I’ve ever read. When I first read it, I immediately reread it to make sure I didn’t misread it. According to the article, Reps. Keith Ellison, (D-MN), Raul Grijalva, (D-AZ), and Mark Pocan, (D-WI), sent a letter to the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee, saying […]

Cruz vs. Franken, Sessions edition

Al Franken’s attempt to sink Sen. Jeff Sessions’ confirmation as the 84th Attorney General of the United States failed. It failed partly because Sen. Franken is a buffoon. It failed partly because Sen. Franken essentially called Sen. Sessions a liar. Mostly, though, Sen. Franken failed because he attacked Sen. Sessions by basing his questions on […]

Mitch McConnell’s First 90-Days; a Probationary Watch

Democrats to commit political suicide?

If this article is accurate, then it’s safe to say that Democrats are preparing to commit political suicide. The opening paragraph states “Senate Democrats are preparing to put Donald Trump’s Cabinet picks through a grinding confirmation process, weighing delay tactics that could eat up weeks of the Senate calendar and hamper his first 100 days […]

The perfect Democrat

The perfect Democrat is a toothless Democrat. These days, there’s lots of toothless Democrats in DC. House Democrats have been toothless since January, 2011. Now it’s the Senate Democrats’ turn to feel impotent. They’re feeling impotent because outgoing Democrat Leader Harry Reid went nuclear in 2013. Now that there’s a Republican administration forming, Democrats are […]

Jeff Sessions, existential threat

Stephen Dinan’s article highlights how little leverage Democrats have in the immigration reform debate. Without writing a single new law, Sen. Sessions will be able to pressure mayors of sanctuary cities. As a result, Sen. Sessions’ opponents are coming unhinged. For instance, Brent Wilkes, the executive director of the League of United Latin American Citizens, […]

AG Sessions frightens Democrats

Byron York’s article on the likely confirmation of Sen. Jeff Sessions as President Trump’s Attorney General illustrates why Democrats are legitimately frightened by what Sessions could do without legislative action. For instance, York writes that “There are laws providing for the deportation of people who entered the U.S. illegally. Laws providing for the deportation of […]

NY Times anti-Sessions rant

This NY Times editorial highlights why the NY Times editorial page isn’t taken seriously anymore. For instance, they wrote “Mr. Sessions has been the Senate’s most ardent opponent of fixing the immigration system. In 2015 he proposed a five-year mandatory minimum sentence for anyone re-entering the country illegally after being deported. That could increase the […]

The Trump campaign’s Faustian Bargain with illegal immigration

Did Trump just “pivot” on illegal immigration?

From the very beginning of his campaign for president, Donald Trump made illegal immigration his number one issue. He promised to build wall, and he caused quite a controversy last year when he pledged to create a “deportation force” designed…

#NeverTrump: It’s not just a hashtag anymore

As you may know by now, based on recent commentaries, I’m no fan of Donald Trump for president. And it turns out an ever-increasing number of Conservatives feel the same way. Sure, we’re tired of the way the Republican party,…

Obamatrade surrenders U.S. sovereignty to international commission

Do you remember the top-secret “pass it to see what’s in it” handling of the Trans Pacific Partnership and the Trade Promotion Authority (a.k.a. Fast Track) legislation? Do you remember how Obama ridiculed Conservatives who objected to the secret nature…

RINOs put America on the “fast track” to the end

  As I was preparing for today’s post, I was going to talk about how Republican presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) had seen the light on Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) and the “fast track” authority wanted by Obama. Alas, his change of heart was a bit too little, too late. The RINO dominated Senate voted yesterday to give Obama the fast track authority he covets. His new authority authorizes him to negotiate massive trade deals without Congress, and restricts lawmakers from making any amendments to any treaty he presents. The only action Congress can take is a simple yes or no vote. Opposition to this constitutional travesty was led by Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), who failed to muster enough no votes to keep it from passing, even with the change of heart displayed by Senator Cruz. In an opinion piece published yesterday, Cruz explained his actions: “TPA in this Congress has become enmeshed in corrupt Washington backroom deal-making, along with serious concerns that it would open up the potential for sweeping changes in our laws that trade agreements typically do not include.” He added that “TPA’s progress through the House and Senate appears to have been made possible by […]

TPP: Pass it to see what’s in it? Here we go again!

  I’ve been writing a lot recently about how the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and the Fast Track Authority (TPA) it would give Obama, is bad news for liberty and freedom. For instance, it was just yesterday that I shared how Obama admitted in an interview with NPR’s Marketplace that the TPP would give him authority to put America under United Nations control in order to force their radical “fix” for global warming. And it was earlier this year when I documented how the TPP could be used by Obama to enforce the new gun control measures he wanted when he signed–but couldn’t get approved in the Senate–the UN Arms Trade Treaty. Apparently, these concerns are just the tip of the iceberg. In a letter just made public by Senator Jeff Sessions, the junior Senator from Alabama is demanding that the administration explain why Obamatrade–as it is now being called–has been so secretive: “On May 6th of this year, I sent you a letter regarding your request for Congress to grant you fast-track executive authority,” in a letter provided to Breitbart News. “Under fast-track, Congress transfers its authority to the executive and agrees to give up several of its most basic […]
