  • Activist Judicial Rulings Block the Administration From Enforcing Our Nation’s Immigration Laws

     Issued on: October 11, 2019 In order to have a functioning legal immigration system that serves America’s national interests, we must have rules, laws, conditions, and procedures for entry into the United States—and the violation of these laws and rules must be enforced. President Donald J. Trump BLOCKED FROM ENFORCING CONGRESSIONALLY ENACTED IMMIGRATION LAW: President Donald J. Trump is working tirelessly to restore enforcement of our immigration laws as enacted, but activist judicial rulings are restricting the Administration from following the plain text of Federal law. One shocking judicial ruling after another has barred the Administration from enforcing the immigration...
  • ICE Director: Single California Judge Cripples Enforcement in 43 States

    10/10/2019 2:45:27 PM PDT · by House Atreides · 32 replies ^ | October 10, 2019 | Neil Munro
    A California judge is crippling the nation’s immigration enforcement system, amid the myriad examples of murders and crimes committed by illegal migrants, ICE director Matt Albence said at a White House press conference. Immigration enforcement is “being singled out and marginalized in ways that no other federal law enforcement organization has to tolerate,” he said. “Tying our hands from the bench does not make our country any safer.” The judge’s action was prompted by an ACLU lawsuit, which argued that some U.S. citizens were being misidentified as migrants by police databases. The judge announced September 27 he would end ICE’s...

    Billionaire investor and political activist George Soros comments on the Trump administration in a speech at the World Economic Forum's annual meeting in Davos. Soros declared the Trump phenomenon will "disappear" in 2020, calling his presidency a "danger to the world." Soros said his "goal" is to "reestablish a functioning two-party system" in the United States. "Clearly, I consider the Trump administration a danger to the world," Soros said at a World Economic Forum event. "But I regard it as a purely temporary phenomenon that will disappear in 2020, or even sooner." "My personal goal in the United States is...

    As House Democrats moved forward with an impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee convened confirmation hearings for five judicial nominees. Wednesday’s candidates include two appeals court nominees and three trial court nominees. Sarah Pitlyk, a trial court nominee who litigated for pro-life groups and clerked for Justice Brett Kavanaugh, bore the brunt of Democratic criticism at the hearing
  • Another Trump Ninth Circuit Nominee Takes Step Toward Confirmation

    Danielle Hunsaker, a former clerk for Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, got a step closer Wednesday to filling the seat left open on the court when O’Scannlain took senior status in 2016. Hunsaker said in her prepared remarks before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that being confirmed as O’Scannlain’s successor would be “a highlight for me in my life,” although she said “the prospect of filling his shoes is daunting.” Hunsaker, whose father worked in Oregon’s timber and construction industry, and whose mother homeschooled her, answered largely friendly questions about her...

    An announcement from my legal guy, Zen Master, on the court/judge situation: Senate Hearings on Eugene Scalia for Labor Secretary will run about 30 hours and will bump back confirmation of two more judges this week. Scalia is a great choice. Now, here is the article "A Whole New Ballgame" It shows that not only is Trump moving faster than anyone else (MUCH faster than Zero) but that his nominees are MUCH more conservative, much more likely to be truly "diverse" as means coming from someplace other than Harvard or Yale (U AL, U GA, U Texas law schools,...

    WASHINGTON (CN) – President Donald Trump announced six new judicial nominees on Friday, including two to seats on the once reliably liberal Ninth Circuit and four to federal courts in California. One of the nominees to the Ninth Circuit will be familiar to senators, as Trump has now three times chosen Patrick Bumatay for a federal judgeship. Trump first chose Bumatay, a prosecutor in the Southern District of California, for a seat on the Ninth Circuit in 2018, but the Senate never took action on the nomination. Trump tapped him for a judgeship again earlier this year, this time for...

    Sen. Ted Cruz will oppose President Donald Trump’s nominee for the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, Halil Suleyman “Sul” Ozerden, a major setback for the embattled nomination. Cruz (R-Texas) has informed the White House and colleagues this week that he will oppose Ozerden, according to three people familiar with the Judiciary Committee’s internal dynamics. That conservative opposition places in doubt the future of Ozerden, who is a close friend of acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, and whose nomination Mulvaney pushed over the objections of the White House Counsel's office.

    A "dark money" group that was established to push back against the judicial nominations of President Donald Trump, and which was at the forefront of the battle against Justice Brett Kavanaugh and continues to go after him to this day, was heavily financed by liberal billionaire George Soros around the time of its inception, grants show. Demand Justice, a left-wing advocacy group, was established in 2018 and is led by Brian Fallon, the former press secretary for Hillary Clinton's failed 2016 campaign. The group does not disclose its donors and is a project of the Sixteen Thirty Fund, which falls...

    Within a matter of months, almost half of the judges on the powerful 11th circuit court of appeals will have been appointed by President Trump. On Thursday, Judge Stanley Marcus, a Clinton appointee, announced he will take senior status on the federal appeals court in Atlanta. Marcus’s decision, first reported by the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, comes one month after another jurist on the same court, Judge Gerald Tjoflat, announced he would become a senior judge with a reduced case load. The 11th Circuit covers Alabama, Georgia and Florida, and because of the significant numbers of African Americans in all three states,...

    North Carolina’s political maps for the state legislature are unconstitutional and must be redrawn before the 2020 elections, a court has decided. A panel of judges struck down the maps Tuesday, in a 357-page ruling that focused on the level of political partisanship used to draw them. The maps were drawn in 2017 to replace previous maps, drawn in 2011, that had also been ruled unconstitutional. Both sets of maps were drawn by North Carolina’s Republican-led legislature. The judges found that “The North Carolina Supreme Court has long and consistently held that ‘our government is founded on the will of...

  • Jephthah’s Bloodless Sacrifice: A closer look at the story of Jephthah and his daughter

    Christian Research Institute ^ | James Patrick Holding
    ​Although critics of the Bible seem to find it objectionable whenever any biblical character is killed, the story of Jephthah and his daughter (Judg. 11:29–40) is frequently singled out for condemnation. Richard Dawkins describes this account as a “story of human sacrifice” that ended unhappily.1 Former preacher turned atheist Dan Barker says that Jephthah “found it hard to murder his daughter, but he was obligated by a vow to God to go through with it, and he did, without condemnation.”2Admittedly, even some Christian apologists say that Jephthah went through with a literal human sacrifice. Biblical scholar Walter Kaiser notes...

    The Senate on Wednesday confirmed nine more of President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees to the federal bench. The judicial confirmations come as Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has called for the Senate to confirm 19 judges before it leaves Washington for a monthlong recess at the end of this week. The latest package of nominees also signals the Republican-controlled Senate is now turning its attention to the confirmation of district judges, after initially focusing on filling circuit court vacancies.
  • Judges Seated by Trump Begin to Transform ‘9th Circus’

    07/30/2019 4:22:28 PM PDT · by cotton1706 · 33 replies ^ | 7/29/19 | Fred Lucas
    The Trump administration gained a rare victory this summer in the most unlikely of venues—the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which is widely viewed as the most liberal federal appeals court. One big reason: President Donald Trump’s appointments to the 9th Circuit have moved it closer to ideological balance. The court, long known for being both liberal and among the most overturned circuits, has been a thorn in Trump’s side, ruling against the president multiple times, mostly on immigration policies. The confirmation of Trump nominee Daniel Bress in July gave the president his seventh judge on the court. It...

    The Federalist ^ | 07/29/2019 | Thomas Jipping
    The year 1987 was significant in the history of the Senate’s process for considering a president’s nominees. The Senate defeated President Ronald Reagan’s nomination of Robert Bork, and the tactics of his opponents gave rise to the verb “to bork.” Many people, mistakenly it turned out, thought the confirmation process could not get any worse.Individual confirmation conflicts had increased since Reagan took office. In 1984, Democrats launched the first filibuster in American history against an appeals court nominee. After the second vote to invoke cloture, or end debate, on the nomination of J. Harvie Wilkinson to the U.S. Court...

    I posted the story of Ted Cruz questioning Trumps appointment to the 5th District Appeals Court. The following is exactly what I wrote. FB has now suspended me for the trillionth time ion the last few years. Please contact your senator and tell them to deny President Trump's nominee for the 5th District Court of Appeals. He needs to listen to Ted Cruz, because Ted is 100% correct here. The nominee in question is Judge Ozerden. He is currently a District judge who was appointed by George Bush in 2007 to the Southern District of Mississippi. In 2012, Ozerden...

    U.S. District Judge William H. Walls, the first male African-American judge to sit on the federal bench in New Jersey, died last week at the age of 86. Described once in a CNN headline as a “judicial renegade,” Walls had a storied — and sometimes enigmatic — history on the bench. But it was his comments during the trial of U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez, when he told the senator’s attorney to “shut up” and referenced the 1977 World War II film “A Bridge Too Far” as he cautioned the parties on their tactics, that garnered him national attention in 2017....
