IN BRIEF

Unconstitutional Expert Weighs in on Trump

Nate Jackson

“A president doesn’t get to decide on his own who’s an American citizen and who’s not,” declared a noted constitutional law professor, who was rebutting President Donald Trump’s trial balloon regarding an executive order about birthright citizenship and the 14th Amendment. “That’s not how the Constitution of the United States works. That’s not how the Bill of Rights works. That’s not how our democracy works.”
You may have guessed already — that “scholar” is none other than Barack Obama, the same hypocrite who “decided on his own who’s an American citizen” with his unconstitutional DACA gambit. Remember? Armed with his phone and pen, Obama decided that since Congress had declined to advance his preferred legislation to grant citizenship to “Dreamers” — immigrants of a certain age brought here by their parents — he would do so himself. And that was despite Obama’s previous repeated declarations that the president had no such authority.
To be sure, there’s a key difference between Obama’s action and Trump’s proposal — beyond the fact that Trump hasn’t actually done anything yet. As we explained last week, we believe it’s clear the authors of the 14th Amendment did not intend to extend citizenship to the children of illegal aliens. That means, contrary to breathless Leftmedia assertions, Trump would not actually be changing the Constitution with an executive order. He’d be changing the executive branch’s interpretation of it to match the original intent.
Yet Trump quickly tempered his idea by saying that he’d rather see Congress address the issue. He’s on far better footing with that suggestion, but that doesn’t make Obama’s demagoguery any more accurate.
Meanwhile, Obama is the same guy who also not long ago hypocritically lectured, “I’d like to think there are compassionate conservatives out there who think there’s nothing compassionate about ripping immigrant children from the arms of their mothers at the border and putting them in pens.” You know, like his administration did.
On a final note, Obama wondered at another rally, “Why is it that the folks that won the last election are so mad all the time?” First of all, conservatives are mad that hypocrites like Obama are still sanctimoniously telling us how evil we are. Second, conservatives are pleasantly happy compared to the rage of the Left.

Senate Investigative Report Exonerates Kavanaugh

Thomas Gallatin

The truth will always eventually come out, as it now appears is the case with Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. He endured a last-minute rash of spurious sexual-assault allegations in an orchestrated smear campaign by Democrats intent on preventing his confirmation. We can only hope this truth will prevent the same type of baseless abuse of a public official at the hands of those motivated by craven partisan considerations in the future.
On Saturday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released a 400-page report on the Senate’s investigation into the various allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against Kavanaugh. The big takeaway from Grassley’s report is that no evidence has been found to corroborate any of the accusations. The report succinctly states, “Following the separate and extensive investigations by both the Committee and the FBI, there was no evidence to substantiate any of the claims of sexual assault made against Justice Kavanaugh.”
Furthermore, four individuals have been referred to the Justice Department for potential prosecution for making false statements to the Judiciary Committee. Included among those four individuals are, as we previously noted, Julie Swetnick and her self-promoting attorney Michael Avenatti. According to the Senate report, “Evidence appears to support the position that [they] criminally conspired to make materially false statements to the Committee and obstruct the Committee’s investigation.” The other two individuals are one who claimed an acquaintance of his son was raped by Kavanaugh on a boat in Newport, Rhode Island, but who later recanted his story; and Judy Munro-Leighton, a leftist activist who admitted her story of being raped in a car by Kavanaugh “was just a ploy.”
It’s important to note that the committee isn’t done with its investigation. The report indicates that this is “a status update on the Committee’s ongoing efforts to review and address additional matters that arose during the course of the investigation, including potential violations of Senate rules, potential witness tampering, and potential false statements made to the Committee in violation of federal law.” Clearly, Grassley is not about to let Democrats get away with their outrageously partisan hit job on Kavanaugh. That type of dirty, deceitful politics must be exposed and those responsible for it held accountable. It is the only way to ensure the integrity of the process in the future.
