“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.”
This is the finest analysis of James Comey, “deep-water Swamp Denizen,” that I’ve seen. His corruption in detail by famed scifi author Jerry Pournelle (The Mote In God’s Eye). Including Comey’s jailing of Martha Stewart.
“James Comey is a poisonous snake of the highest order… a deep-water Swamp Denizen who has been highly paid to deliberately provide cover for high-level corruption by the Clintons and Obama. He is has been central to trying to destroy the Trump campaign and then the Trump administration from the start. He is as dirty as they come in DC. He had highest-level cover (the FBI no less) and was deep into an effort to eliminate Trump. Trump had to move hard, fast, and at exactly the right time to cut the head off the snake without getting bitten by the snake or being finished by the other swamp denizens.
“Begin by noticing how the President fired Comey when Comey was 3,000 miles away from his office, that Comey had no inkling he was being cut, that all his files, computers, and everything in his office were seized by his boss Sessions and the justice department. This was not a violation of protocol, it was tactical.
“Notice how Prez Trump compartmentalized the strike and did not inform any of his White House “staff” to prevent leaks. Notice how he emasculated Comey and the swamp denizens by letting them know in a tweet that the Attorney General got information (surveillance “tapes” from the seizure of Comey’s office) to let Comey and his handlers know that Trump’s DOJ has the goods on them. This was a brilliant, strategic and totally imperative move at exactly the right time against horrible, evil and corrupt powers infesting our government.”
Read it all. You won’t be sorry you spent the time.

That’s the conclusion of Breitbart’s Joel B. Pollack on the NYSlimes and the WaPo, who are piling on President Trump with almost daily criticism:
“In their effort to impugn Trump, the Times and the Post violate the most basic journalistic standards. Publishing parts of a document that you do not possess and cannot verify, and timing the release to cause maximum political damage (right after the president leaves the country), is not investigative journalism. It is political propaganda.”
And, Pollack might have added, their work is splashed across the front pages of innumerable Mediacrat newspapers across the country: Sheep who have always followed the NYSlimes and the Wapo, wagging their tails behind them.
When the two major newspapers in the country are piling on, with almost daily anti-Trump stories, abetted by at least two major networks and a significant number of both political parties in Congress, Trump can’t escape for long.
“…Donald Trump declared war on the establishment, and the establishment is making war on Trump,” writes John Hinderaker of PowerLineBlog.
This Comey revenge story just may do it. Time will tell. A few months time. Until the end of the summer, anyway. Impeachment is coming from the House. Whether the Senate will/can convict is another story.
UPDATE: This DOJ appointment of a special counsel to oversee the Trump/Russia circus may hold the onrushing tide back for a while. Note that it’s not a special “prosecutor,” which isn’t likely to assuage the Dems/Reps for long.

“Under the law, Comey is required to immediately inform the Department of Justice of any attempt to obstruct justice by any person, even the President of the United States. Failure to do so would result in criminal charges against Comey. (18 USC 4 and 28 USC 1361) He would also, upon sufficient proof, lose his license to practice law.
“….If Comey concluded, however, that Trump’s language was vague, ambiguous or elliptical, then he has no duty under the law to report it because it does not rise to the level of specific intent. Thus, no crime.”
On either side. As Breitbart says: “…Assuming, for the sake of argument, that the Comey memo is accurate, what Trump says — ‘I hope you can let this go … I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go … He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.’ — is never actually framed as a request at all. Yet the [NY] Times calls it a ‘request’ and an effort to interfere in the investigation.
Not that the Mediacrats or the anti-Trump pols will care to argue about it. They’ll very likely use it to try for the impeachment the networks already are pushing.
A genius. An absolute genius at tying the liberals up in knots, along with their fellow-travelers McCain and Graham.
“Trump was unafraid to do what five presidents were afraid to do with regard to J. Edgar Hoover shows an additional aspect of his character that, while problematic, probably plays well with a lot of the public…But finally, it ought to be noted for the historical record that Comey might well be considered the last casualty of the recklessness of the Clintons.
“Aside from the specific controversy of Hillary’s home-brew server, it was Bill Clinton’s dodgy meeting on the airport tarmac with Attorney General Loretta Lynch last summer than compelled Comey to come forward with his extraordinary [July, 2016] press conference letting Hillary off the hook while explaining clearly that she is in fact a criminal.”
And that, alone, was a reason to fire him. But Obama wouldn’t do it.

Trump fired Comedy. And the Left, predictably, is losing it.
“It’s a grotesque abuse of power by the President of the United States. This is the kind of thing that goes on in non-democracies—that when there is an investigation that reaches near the President of the United States or the leader of a non-democracy, they fire the people who are in charge of the investigation. I have not seen anything like this since October 20, 1973, when President Nixon fired Archibald Cox, the Watergate special prosecutor.”
Now get the Hildafelon’s case to a grand jury!
