Immigration Judge Could Face Discipline for Hatch Act Violation

Justice Department immigration Judge Carmene “Zsa Zsa” DePaolo violated the Hatch Act in March 2016 when she spoke favorably of Democratic candidates during an official hearing, according to a complaint filed Wednesday by the Office of Special Counsel.   In a filing with the Merit Systems Protection Board, the special counsel requested discipline for the judge for saying, during an open deportation hearing, that the threat of a 10-year ban on reentry for an undocumented person was “a pretty harsh thing” that then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was planning to change.

The policy would be altered provided that “the Senate becomes a Democratic body and there’s some hope that they can actually pass immigration legislation,” DePaulo added. She then said the Republicans, by contrast, “aren’t going to do anything” about immigration “if they can help it,” other than to “try to deport everybody,” according to the OSC’s account.

“When a federal immigration judge in a public setting uses her position to advocate for partisan campaign outcomes, that’s a real problem,” Special Counsel Henry Kerner said in a statement. “Judge DePaolo appears to be in clear violation of the Hatch Act and we believe she should face significant disciplinary action.”  Hatch Act violations can result in demotion, suspension, removal from employment or debarment.
Separately, the OSC is being asked to deal with a possible Hatch Act violation by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. On Tuesday, while attending the Western Governors Association annual meeting in Rapid City, S.D., near Mount Rushmore, Zinke tweeted a photo of his sock, which bore a likeness of President Trump and his campaign slogan “Make America Great Again.”

SOMETHING THIS FEDERAL GOVERNMENT NEED VERY BADLY

White House Defends Government Reorganization Proposals Amid Congressional Criticism

Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said he was concerned the reorganization proposal was "just an effort to do more harm to federal employees."Mre, Negative don’t accept anything the Republicans say or do!

eliminate employees!)
The White House fended off a barrage of criticisms and concerns over its plan to reorganize the federal government during a hearing to review the proposal on Wednesday, with members of both parties pushing back on key parts of the plan.
Facing the objections, Office of Management and Budget Deputy Director for Management Margaret Weichert said all of the recommendations stemmed from a desire to make improvements in three areas: agency missions, services for citizens and stewardship of taxpayer dollars. Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee generally praised the overall intent of the plan, but repeatedly flagged specific suggestions they found problematic. Democrats, meanwhile, questioned the Trump administration’s motives in putting forward its blueprint and focused specifically on negative effects they said it would have on federal workers.
Weichert defended the proposals, including privatizing air traffic control, reforming the jurisdictions of the Transportation Department, changes to the Agriculture Department and its food assistance programs, and merging the departments of Labor and Education. Lawmakers paid particular attention to two controversial proposals: privatizing the U.S. Postal Service and shrinking the Office of Personnel Management while moving some of its functions to a policy shop within the White House.
The changes to OPM actually represented an elevation of the agency, Weichert repeatedly told lawmakers, citing the proximity the director would have to the White House. She noted that only one country similar to the United States has an entity in its government like OPM, and that example—France—is “not known to be a bastion of bureaucratic efficiency.” She said ridding OPM of its human resources processing responsibilities would enable it to focus on strategic workforce reforms, preserve merit system principles and better position it to undertake the reskilling and redeployment efforts the administration hopes to accomplish.

NEW Dinesh D’Souza MOVIE RELEASE AUGUST 3, 2018 DEATH OF A NATION – CAN WE SAVE AMERICA A SECOND TIME


“JUST RELEASED: This is the official movie poster for my new film,
Death of a Nation, due in theaters nationwide August 3,” D’Souza wrote.

According to the movie’s website, the documentary will draw parallels between
Abraham Lincoln’s presidency and the presidency of Donald Trump.
“Democrats in 1860,” according to the website, “fanatically refused to accept the result of a free election. That year, their target was Lincoln. They smeared him. They went to war to defeat him. In the end, they assassinated him.”   Now “the target of the Democrats is President Trump”, the website reads. “The Left calls them racists, white supremacists, and fascists. These charges are used to justify driving Trump from office and discrediting the right ‘by any means necessary.'”
“Death of a Nation draws a provocative analogy between Lincoln and Trump,” D’Souza told The Hollywood Reporter.  “Not that they’re the same people, but that they’ve fallen into the same situation. Not since 1865 have Democrats so dramatically refused to accept the outcome of a presidential election.”  D’Souza admits the timing of his pardon and the image the poster portrays of the current president as Lincoln-esque, might make one wonder if the presidential pardon was one hand washing another.
“We’ve been working on the film for more than a year and commissioned the artwork two months ago. Trump had no inkling of the art or the theme of the movie when he pardoned me,” D’Souza told THR.
CBN News reported the filmmaker, author and speaker was sentenced in September 2014 in federal court in New York to five years of probation after he admitted making illegal contributions to a U.S. Senate candidate in New York. Eight months of the first year was to be served in a community confinement center.  He was also sentenced to an eight-hour day of community service every week of the five-year term, weekly counseling, and was ordered to pay a $30,000 fine along with a $100 special assessment.  His defenders, including liberal attorney Alan Dershowitz, said the punishment did not fit the crime and the president agreed.
According to THR, the movie was shot in the Czech Republic and Germany, including scenes in Courtroom 600 at the Palace of Justice, where the Nuremberg Trials took place.    Academy award winning producer Gerald R. Molen serves as the producer of the film. His previous credits include Schindler’s List and Jurassic Park.  Death of a Nation also explores the roots of fascism and racism.
“The left has been playing these cards against conservatives for a decade. We explore if the fascist-racist tail should be pinned on the Republican elephant or the Democrat donkey,” D’Souza told THR.   D’Souza is the executive producer of the documentary films 2016: Obama’s America, America: Imagine The World Without Her and Hillary’s America.   Born in Mumbai, India, D’Souza moved to the United States to attend school on a Rotary Scholarship, and, following graduation from Dartmouth University, he went on to work in the Reagan White House as a policy analyst. He has also served as a John M. Olin Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and Robert and Karen Rishwain Fellow at Stanford University.
You can follow “Death of a Nation” on the movie’s Facebook page.  A trailer for the movie will be released on Youtube sometime this summer.
According to THR, the movie will be released in 1,000 theaters across the country on Aug. 3.
