Rule 5: Sophie Sheppard

Fake Law

“Ten progressive judges in Virginia [4th Circuit Court of Appeals] have decided that Muslims can ask judges to change the nation’s national security and immigration policies whenever prior campaign statements in democratic political elections can be described as unfair to Muslims living in America…

“President Donald Trump’s Executive Order on Islamic migration ‘speaks with vague words of national security, but in context drips with religious intolerance, animus, and discrimination’ from the 2016 election campaign, the judges insisted….

“The judges’ deference to the Muslim plaintiffs comes after 16 years of deadly, repeated and destructive attacks on Americans motivated by the Islamic religion, starting on 9/11, 2001. Since then, U.S. forces have gone to war in several majority-Muslim countries to curb terrorism, and more than 101 people named after Islam’s primary warrior/prophet have been arrested and convicted by domestic courts for various jihad and terror-related offenses.”

The Trump “resistance” has moved into the courts, where fake law from our robed rulers is forcing the U.S. to take Muslim refugees and Muslim immigrants—unless the Supremes step in and rule nay.

UPDATE:  More from the conservative lawyers at Power Line Blog: “No one should be surprised that the federal judiciary has enlisted in the resistance. It is, to borrow Trump’s rhetoric, a swamp.”

Cutting back on fake news

Scott Adams has a good idea for replacing the White House press briefings, which have only turned into a sneer fest of gotcha games fueling fake news.

Take it to the Internet, he says, with written questions and answers, supplemented by occasional video clips, and let the public respond to the questions and answers, though some sort of refereeing and censorship would be necessary there.

I like this author of Dilbert, which is a funny strip, and I’ll probably get around to reading his anti-self help book as well.

Rule 5: Rodin’s Eternal Idol

End the “daily briefings” now

“Yes, I spent 25 years as a member of the MSM, 16 of them at Time magazine at the pinnacle of its fame and influence. Still, I have to agree with Mr. Newt that it’s not the function of the executive branch to spoon-feed the hostile, lazy, anonymice-quoting Washington press corps at a daily briefing in the White House…The daily briefing has devolved into a coup-counting sneer fest, with reporters attempting to score points while eliciting exactly zero useful or newsworthy information. Close it down.”

Couldn’t have said it better, and so I’m reprinting this from PJMedia columnist Michael Walsh.
