  • Federal judge orders complete restart of DACA

    Deepest blow yet to Trump’s phaseout ....Judge John D. Bates’s ruling would require a full restart, meaning even illegal immigrant “Dreamers” who’d never been approved before would now be able to apply for DACA.... judge imposed a 90-day delay on his own ruling to give the government a chance to reargue its case, but for now the ruling stands as the most severe blow yet to Mr. Trump’s phaseout. Judge Bates said the government’s reasoning for revoking DACA wasn’t convincing enough, and so it amounted to an “arbitrary and capricious” decision, which makes it illegal under the Administrative Procedures Act....

    The Trump’s first State Dinner was held in the State Dining Room, where such affairs were intended to be held, rather than the circus tent constructed on the south lawn for many of the Obama era state dinners.Trump’s State Dinner for France, Obama’s State Circus for India And the table setting was boringly classic, left, unlike the Obama’s state dinner for Italy, right which was contemporary pink and green. Of course you don’t need to erect a tent if you don’t invite half of Hollywood and all of the supportive press corps to break bread with you like they did...
  • “Very P----- Off” Obama DOJ Made “Dramatic” Call To McCabe To Quash Clinton Probe

    04/24/2018 4:00:08 PM PDT · by blam · 21 replies
    As the FBI’s investigation into the Clinton Foundation pressed on during the 2016 election, a senior official with the Obama justice department, identified as Matthew Axelrod, called former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe – who thought the DOJ was pressuring him to shut down the investigation, according to the recently released inspector general’s (OIG) report. The official was “very pissed off” at the FBI, the report says, and demanded to know why the FBI was still pursuing the Clinton Foundation when the Justice Department considered the case dormant. –Washington Times The OIG issued a criminal referral for McCabe based on...

    Tucked inside the inspector general’s report on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was the story of an August 2016 phone call from a high-ranking Justice Department official who Mr. McCabe thought was trying to shut down the FBI’s probe into the Clinton Foundation at a time when Hillary Clinton was running for president. The official was “very pissed off” at the FBI, the report says, and demanded to know why the FBI was still pursuing the Clinton Foundation when the Justice Department considered the case dormant. Former FBI officials said the fact that a call was made is even...

    American Thinker ^ | 04/23/2018 | Monica Showalter
    South Africa is busy Zimbabwifying itself, ready to expropriate white-owned farms without compensation. At this point, it should be a pariah state. But in goes President Obama, likely to egg them on. The gushy New York Times piece about it pretty well calls Obama's planned trip to play community organizer abroad in South Africa a wonderful thing. He’s been photographed kite-surfing with Richard Branson off Necker Island, relaxing on David Geffen’s yacht in French Polynesia with Bruce Springsteen and Oprah Winfrey, river-rafting with his family in Bali and posing with a celebrity chef in Tuscany. To those who have...

    Donald Trump may have chosen not to attend Barbara Bush’s funeral on Saturday, but social media users still found a way to talk about him in his absence. After the president’s wife Melania Trump was spotted smiling and sharing a laugh with Barack Obama before the service in Houston, it didn’t take long before social media users began to joke about how even though she was at a funeral, she appeared to be having a good time away from her husband. “Melania looks happier at a funeral than she has in ages. Wouldn’t you too if you went from being...

    When you want to take a country down, the first thing you do is weaken its military When former President Barack Obama announced five days before he took his oath of office that he would be “fundamentally transforming the United States of America,” not many Americans understood what that meant. However, it soon became very clear. His declaration to fundamentally change America was both un-American and anti-Western, as well as pro-Islam, pro-Iranian and pro-Muslim Brotherhood. In short, it was treason! When you want to take a country down, the first thing you do is weaken its military. That’s what the...

    Why would CNN hire the daughter of Barack Obama’s top adviser Valerie Jarrett to go after the President of the United States of America. In political life, attorney generals sometimes “recuse” themselves even when it leaves a knife in the back of a newly elected president. In March of 2017, Jeff Sessions recused himself from any investigation into the 2016 presidential election, including the so-called Russia probe, after the Washington Post reported he had met with Sergey KIslyak at least twice in 2016, contacts he was accused of failing to disclose during his heated confirmation hearing.

    The wakes and funerals of Abraham Lincoln, FDR, HST, Ike, Ronald Reagan, JFK, were attended by all sorts & types of citizens paying respect to the passed leaders and their wives of the American Republic in massive numbers of rank and file American citizens. The wake of Barbara Bush draw a paltry 6,000 people to view her casket in mourning. And...the following day funeral was a closed "elite establishment" affair, without hardly any public outpouring from the American public whatsoever. Why? The Bush family with its envy, hatred, disdain, dislike and elitist gaul, dripping with disgust for POTUS, Donald J....

    Note to Barack Hussein Obama: This is what ‘smart diplomacy’ looks like: ‘How could a dangerous idiot like Donald Trump get little Kimmie to drop his guns when the brilliant Barry Obama (with his secret diplomatic weapon, Dennis Rodman) was unable to do so? Could it be PDJT, using America’s strength as a trade partner, got…(Gasp!) China to exert force on our behalf?

    People wonder why Melania has been shunned by magazine editors around the world. It is curious, it would seem she is a natural having graced covers for most of her life. And in Michelle Obama-ese, she can “totally rock” a shirtwaist like nobody. But alas, we are experiencing the effects of PTSD (President Trump Stress Disorder) by-proxy syndrome. Hatin’ on Trump is not enough, the vitriol must be transferred to everything and anything associated with the President. And in Liberal-Land that includes the President’s wife and children - unless of course the President is a Democrat and then such behavior...

    Kyle Kashuv, a pro-Second Amendment student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, roasted former President Obama on Twitter Thursday for writing an essay praising only the school's pro-gun control student activists for Time magazine. Seventeen people were killed and seventeen more were wounded at the Parkland, Florida, school on February 14, making it one of the deadliest school massacres ever. On Thursday, Time released its list of the 100 most influential people. It included some Parkland survivors -- but only pro-gun control survivors: Cameron Kasky, Jaclyn Corin, David Hogg, Emma Gonzalez, and Alex Wind.

    Colorado Democrats hope to convince their fellow state lawmakers to rename a stretch of Interstate 25 the “Barack Obama Highway.” The measure passed a House panel by a 12-1 vote Thursday, but could eventually face opposition in the Republican-controlled Senate. The bill would apply to the portion of the interstate that runs through Denver in recognition of the 2008 Democratic National Convention, which the city hosted. It was there that Obama accepted the party's nomination for president. Several states have renamed stretches of roads after the 44th president, including California, Illinois, Indiana, Florida and Missouri. Florida leads the way with...

    National Review ^ | April 20, 2018 | Michael Barone
    As the likelihood that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia seems headed toward zero, the likelihood of proof of a different form of collusion seems headed upward toward certainty. The Russia-collusion charge had some initial credibility because of businessman Donald Trump’s dealings in Russia and candidate Trump’s off-putting praise of Vladimir Putin. It was fueled by breathless media coverage of such trivial events as Jeff Sessions’s conversation with the Russian ambassador at a Washington reception — and, of course, by the appointment of former FBI director Robert Mueller as special counsel. But Mueller’s prosecutions of Trump campaign operatives were for...

    When General James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis was picked by President Trump to serve as Secretary of Defense, the veteran community was largely ecstatic. Finally, someone would sit in the Pentagon’s top seat who was a warrior, and an enemy of the PC monster eating the military alive. While there is no doubt that General Mattis served honorably, there is growing doubt and indeed fear that he will never lift a finger to stop the social engineering that is putting the US military on a collision course to disaster. Therefore, US Defense Watch has comprised a list of questions for General...

    Former President Barack Obama has again lauded the students of Parkland, Florida, writing that they "are shaking us out of our complacency." "America's response to mass shootings has long followed a predictable pattern," the 44th president wrote in an entry published Thursday in Time Magazine's "100 Most Influential People" list. "This time, something different is happening. This time, our children are calling us to account." "Seared by memories of seeing their friends murdered at a place they believed to be safe, these young leaders don't intimidate easily," Obama wrote of the students. "The Parkland, Fla., students don't have the kind...

    The accusation that the Obama administration used information gleaned from classified foreign surveillance to smear and blackmail its political opponents at home has gained new traction in recent days, after reports that former National Security Adviser Susan Rice may have been rifling through classified transcripts for over a year that could have included information about Donald Trump and his associates. While using resources that are supposed to keep Americans safe from terrorism for other purposes may be a dereliction of duty, it is no more of a crime than spending all day on Twitter instead of doing your job.
