He’s got an update on the Brexit, Yellow Vest, Italy’s Anti-Immigration and Anti EU Actions and Venezuela’s Meltdown. Pretty interesting stuff.
Gotta love a President with a sense of humor.
Let’s face it, inaction by the Trump Administration to clean up the nightmare in the Justice Department (Mueller, Rosenstein, FISA Courts and the whole FBI in general) has been a discouraging debacle. But Julie Kelly lays out why she thinks that will now turn around with installation of William Barr as the AG. Read it and see what you think. It sounds good but two years of this nonsense has worn down my optimism.
The subject of this post may seem slight in the scheme of things but in my opinion it gets to the heart of how a Conservative Supreme Court can reverse some of the worst of the damage done by unconstitutional judicial overreach.
Karin McQuillan describes how in 1984 the Supreme Court decided that the experts in the federal government could decide on regulations that not even the courts could challenge. This was called the “Chevron deference.” This has allowed EPA scientists to dictate all manner of restrictions on private citizens and businesses for completely fraudulent reasons. Fake frogs and mythical mice have been used to punish land owners and restrict them from using their own land to satisfy the spite of misguided naturalists. Now the new Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh have joined with Justice Thomas to take the lead to reverse the use of the Chevron deference and free the American people from their bureaucratic tyrants. It’s only a first step but it sets a precedent that can have bigger consequences. Progress.
This article hits some of the high points. If Barr can begin controlling the Justice Department and get it working on the real legal problems we currently face (people being fired or de-platformed for being normal) then we might see life returning somewhat to normal.
This is so on the nose I hope the President listens to it and congratulates Carlson for saying it.
Once the new AG is sworn in I hope he does exactly what Tucker is talking about. Go after companies and the non-profits who goad them into firing people over speech and put a stop to it. Finally someone in the mainstream media talking straight about this stuff. It’s about time.
I read three different articles on what the choices are and what’s likely to happen. Damned if I know.
If May’s deal is voted down, which is likely, then a confidence vote is likely. What happens then is anyone’s guess.
So, here’s wishing well to the English and their desire to be free of the European Union. May they succeed soon.
The title of the post is deceptive. Kelly is making the case that using the National Emergencies Act when there is an emergency is already a routine situation that and if it isn’t going to be used when an actual emergency exists then they might as well eliminate it altogether.
The worry many on the Right have is that it will be used by Democrats when they have the Presidency again for everything from Global Warming to Snowflake Bullying. To my mind that is hardly a reason to disarm ourselves against the one truly existential threat to America in our time. Grow up Republicans, you can’t win without fighting.
The President said the meeting was a total waste of time. Let’s hope this means he’ll starve the buggers out.
It seems everyone on our side of the fence was impressed with Tucker Carlson’s video monologue on what’s gone wrong in America. But in Julie Kelly’s post she finds the reaction of NeverTrump folks like David French and Ben Shapiro to be decidedly negative.
Well, I’m not surprised. Tucker must be doing something really right to have the friends he does and the enemies also. Let’s hope he can help President Trump get his message out and start reversing some of the damage that Carlson has highlighted.
