There is great evil afoot in this country

The Left Is Rotting From Within


Katy Grimes imageBy —— Bio and ArchivesJune 15, 2017

 

There is great evil afoot in this country. The left is imploding before our very eyes. But it is a rot from within, and it is self-imposed. The Democrat Party has no substantive platform any longer other than obstruction, “resist,” foul-mouthed vulgarity, violence, anger, and excessive whining.
This rot is manifesting itself in some very public displays:
Campus snowflakes are working overtime at colleges and universities across the country to shut down speech. They are rioting, destroying property, and openly fighting professors whose curriculum offends their sense of social justice. If that isn’t enough scurrilous behavior, these pathetic snowflakes are now demanding racially segregated graduation ceremonies, dormitories, and white students and professors are told to leave campuses for a “day without whites.” I remember when desegregation was worth marching for
The barbaric Kathy Griffin video of the nasty comedian holding a mock bloody decapitated head of President Donald Trump, was not “over the top” as she and many claimed; her stunt mimicked radical Islamic terrorists’ videos of decapitations of Americans and Christians.
The New York Public Theater’s new Free Shakespeare in the Park production of “Julius Caesar” depicts the assassination of a Trump-like Julius Caesar. The story’s assassination scene, which is the main focus of the controversy, featured the Senators turning on Trump/Caesar, stabbing him until he dies in a bloody death scene. The sadistic audience gave a standing ovation.
House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) was shot Wednesday along with a Congressional aide, a lobbyist and two Capitol Police officers, by James T. Hodgkinson, who opened fire on Republican members of Congress at a baseball field, near Washington, D.C. Hodgkinson’s social media posts show his obsessive anger with President Trump and staunch support of Sen. Bernie Sanders. Hodgkinson sent letters to his local newspaper as a political activist very angry with U.S. policies and the tax system. The shooting of Steve Scalise is about leftist terrorism.
Following Hodgkinson’s shooting of Rep. Scalise, New York Rep. Claudia Tenney received a threat, warning her “one down, 216 to go.” Other Republicans in Congress reported receiving calls from vile activists who said they were glad about the shooting, and hope there are more.

A lifetime of indoctrinational public schooling, entertainment industry propaganda, has brought us what the see on the left today!


By —— Bio and Archives June 15, 2017

The Democrat Party lemmings have been activated after a lifetime of
indoctrinational public schooling, entertainment industry propaganda,
and mainstream media instructions

The Democrat Party lemmings have been activated after a lifetime of indoctrinational public schooling, entertainment industry propaganda, and mainstream media instructions.  They have been trained to resist Republican rule, to institute mob-rule, and to end all opposition to the Democrat Party narrative and agenda.   But, the violence is acceptable, to these people.  The ends, after all, justify the means.  They are moral supremacists.  Their liberal left Democrat Party cause, they believe, is a cause worth killing for.
The shooter at the Republican baseball practice, Hodgkinson, was a big-time Bernie Sanders fan, and a Rachel Maddow superfan.  His Facebook page was slathered with photos of Senator Bernie Sanders.  In posts last August, Hodgkinson wrote, “I want Bernie to Win the White House” and “Bernie is a Progressive, while Hillary is Republican Lite.”  At one point, Hodgkinson volunteered in Sanders’ presidential campaign. His social media pages screamed “It’s time to destroy Trump and company.
According to Hodgkinson’s Facebook page, he is a member of numerous left-leaning online groups, including The Road To Hell Is Paved With Republicans; Rachel Maddow For President 2020; Sanders For President 2020; Terminate The Republican Party; and Donald Trump is not my President.   Hodgkinson was killed when good guys with guns, including local police and congressional security, returned fire.
Majority Whip Representative Steve Scalise (R-La.), two Capitol Hill police officers, and a congressional aide, were reportedly injured in the attack.  The game is still going to go on, however.  The players of both teams (Republican and Democrat) are going to wear LSU (Louisiana State University) jerseys to show their support for Scalise’s recovery.   As a result of the shooting, Congressman Scalise was reported to be in critical condition.  He underwent surgical procedures to treat his gunshot wounds.  He experienced wounds to internal organs, and more surgeries are still expected.

The shooting is but another manifestation of a violent pattern being perpetrated by the left-wing

The shooting is but another manifestation of a violent pattern being perpetrated by the left-wing.  Hodgkinson opening fire on Republican congressmen and their staff is only the beginning because other shooters, like Hodgkinson, will believe it is their progressive duty to do so.
The leftist reaction to the shooting has been celebration, and an encouragement of more violence.
New York Representative Claudia Tenney received an email shortly after the shooting that read, “One down, 216 to go.  Did you NOT expect this? When you take away ordinary peoples very lives in order to pay off the wealthiest among us, your own lives are forfeit.  Certainly, your souls and morality were lost long before. Good riddance.”
Remember, the left-wingers are convinced by propaganda that goes back more than a hundred years.  The Democrats are for the poor and the Republicans are for the rich, despite the evidence that all Democrat Party policies are destructive to the poor, and holds up the wealthy and powerful.
Continued below…


Liberal left progressive socialist Marxist Democrats who are creating an environment of violence and intimidation
The hard left crazies do not understand that.  Their lifetime of leftist training doesn’t allow them to conceive of the possibility that their religion of Marxism could possibly be dangerous, a failure, or the actual embodiment of the fascism, hate and totalitarianism they claim to be standing against.  It is the liberal left progressive socialist Marxist Democrats who are creating an environment of violence and intimidation.  It is they who are becoming increasingly hostile, racist and intolerant.  It is the liberal left Democrat antifa crazies who are dividing this country because they believe a well-orchestrated hate-campaign against Donald Trump and the Republican Party that in reality has no truth to it.  It is a false religion.
One of Virginia Representative Tom Garrett’s town halls last month featured a heavy police presence after Garrett and his family were targeted by repeated death threats. “This is how we’re going to kill your wife,” read one such message.
The person behind the message to Garrett was a Tucson Unified School District employee who also left threatening messages for Arizona Representative Martha McSally stating that the congresswoman’s days were “numbered.”
Last month, police in Tennessee charged 35-year-old Wendi Wright with felony reckless endangerment for allegedly trying to run Republican Congressman David Kustoff off the road after a town hall he held regarding the GOP health care bill.
The same day Wright was charged, police in North Dakota escorted a man from a town hall with Representative Kevin Cramer after the man became physical with the Republican congressman and shoved a fistful of money into Cramer’s collar.
Town halls, in general, have become increasingly volatile environments, as left-wing activists have organized hostile town halls.
The list goes on and on:

California Representative Tom McClintock’s town halls in February shows police escorting him to his car afterwards, as emotional protesters chanted “Shame!” At least four tires were slashed outside the town hall.  Also in February, a 71-year-old female staffer for California Representative Dana Rohrbacher was knocked unconscious during an angry protest activists staged outside Rohrbacher’s office.  Alabama Republican Mo Brooks announced shortly afterward he would hold off on holding public town halls out of safety concerns. “I want things to settle down a little bit before I’m willing to subject citizens to bodily harm or damage to their personal property,” he explained. Texas Representative Louie Gohmert similarly put a hold on town halls, “until the threat of violence at town hall meetings recedes.”

A popular parade in Portland, Oregon was canceled in April after threats of violence were made against a local Republican organization taking part.   Pro-Trump commentator Milo Yiannopoulos had his speech at the University of California-Berkeley cancelled after rioters set the campus ablaze in order to keep him from speaking.   Those same activists were able to shut down pro-Trump commentator Ann Coulter’s UC Berkeley speech just by promising a repeat performance of the Milo riots.

A month before the election, someone firebombed a North Carolina GOP office. A building adjacent to the office was spray painted with a warning: “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else.”   Educational institutions are no exception, as Republican students have been targeted there as well.   The day after the election, sophomore high school student Jade Armenio was attacked after she expressed her support for Trump on social media. Armenio, who was white, was attacked by another female student, who was black. The attacker ripped Armenio’s glasses off and punched her in the face. The attack was caught on video.

The president of Cornell University’s College Republicans, Olivia Corn, said she was physically assaulted the night after Trump won the election.   A Maryland high school student wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat after the election was punched and kicked by students protesting Trump after he started arguing with them.   Similarly, police in Florida arrested a 17-year-old high school student after he punched a classmate for carrying a Trump sign at school.   In another instance of post-election violence directed at Trump supporters, 24-year-old Corey Cataldo was reportedly attacked on a New York subway for the crime of wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

Conservative Commentator Michael Savage says that the United States is at a boiling point, and that there is going to be a civil war as a result of the violence by the Marxist revolutionaries of the Democrat Party resistance movement.  Ann Coulter also warns that the live-fire by the “Resistance” has only just begun.
The death threats continue.
But, the fact that the shooting against the GOP on the baseball field in Alexandria occurred, despite the fact that the shooter was stopped by good guys with guns, has Democrats, like Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, calling for stronger gun control.

Domestic Terrorist are from the Democratic Progressive Left – BLM, ANTIFA, OAL, OCCUPY, INDIVISIBLE all terrorist – All formed under Obama!

Douglas V. Gibbs imageThe Domestic Terrorists are not from the GOP. They are Democrats

Now, the tables have turned.  A Republican President is in the White House, and the GOP has a majority in both Houses of Congress.  It turns out that a great number of extremist Democrats are actually everything the leftists accused the conservatives in America of being.  The Domestic Terrorists are not from the GOP.  They are Democrats.  And the violence we are seeing was in the plans all along.
Violence against Republicans, conservatives, and Trump supporters, even shootings of Trump supporters, has become old news.  We are being desensitized.  It began with Black Lives Matter, and with the snowflakes during the presidential campaign, and has been gaining momentum ever since.
The latest in the chapter of violence against the GOP by Democrats, however, has launched into a whole new realm.  The latest news currently being covered is a story about a shooter who walked up to a baseball practice comprised of Republican congressmen and their staffers, and then the leftist Democrat opened fire.  The shooter, online, was a sufferer of Trump Derangement Syndrome, brought on by the liberal left Democrat Party’s hateful rhetoric and the complicit liberal mainstream media.  He was simply doing as he has been instructed.
Earlier this year, in January, Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton’s running-mate in the presidential election, said on television that the Democrat [voters] need to take the fight to the streets.  His was but one of many calls for such violence.  Kathy Griffin with her image holding the severed head of President Donald J. Trump doubled down on the call for violence, and the removal of Trump and his allies from their positions in the U.S. Government.  And now, Democrat voters are responding to their instructions.  But, they simply believe lies, have fallen for a false hysteria; the blood is actually on the hands of the liberal left Democrat Party politicians and the biased liberal media, for inciting such violence.

In a terrorist style much like that of a Muslim jihadist, in a violent manner demanded by the antifa anti-Trump mob

In a terrorist style much like that of a Muslim jihadist, in a violent manner demanded by the antifa anti-Trump mob, and a violent action envisioned and encouraged by multiple celebrities, hardcore liberal left James T. Hodgkinson, 66, still distraught over the 2016 Presidential Election, opened fire on GOP personnel at the baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, and only the fact that there were good guys with guns on the scene was Hodgkinson stopped from killing everyone on that baseball field.

The foot soldiers of the far left Democrat Party regime have been convinced from leftist Democrat Party propaganda that America is experiencing what Germany experienced when Adolf Hitler rose to power.  Hitler was elected after fooling a segment of the people, and the rational argument since World War II has always been that if the people who realized what Hitler truly was had only stood up to him, defeated him, and killed him and his supporters, Germany would not have fallen into the clutches of the Third Reich, and the horrifying events that followed could have been avoided.

The American followers of the Democrat Party’s drive for their own Reich do not realize they are deceived tools for the exact kind of fascism they believe they are standing against.

The Marxists, communists and fascists of the Democrat Party have launched a strategy of deception, projection, and a new generation of brown shirts who fanatically believe that their violence is honorable, and necessary, to save America from some kind of a Fourth Reich perpetrated by the GOP.

 

Republican Baseball Practice Shooting Only the Beginning


Douglas V. Gibbs imageBy —— Bio and ArchivesJune 15, 2017

Remember when the Obama presidency, the experts in the executive branch, his minions in Congress, his minions in the media and his minions on the streets tried to convince America that the Tea Party movement, military veterans and supporters of the Republican Party were capable of violence, and that we were somehow all a bunch of domestic terrorists?  Yet, the violence from the right-wing never manifested as the liberal left predicted.  Tea Party rallies were peaceful, and no mass shootings by Republicans ever happened.  When mass shootings did occur, the shooters always turned out to be Democrats.  But, the media conveniently didn’t discuss that part of the news.

Within the passing of a single day: From Shooting on the Interstate to Baseball Practice Shooting

By —— Bio and Archives June 15, 2017

 


Yesterday it was a hate-crazed, anti-Trump, Bernie Sanders supporter shooting and critically wounding House Majority Whip, Steve Scalise and injuring three others at a baseball practice.  The day before, at 4 p.m. EST, Tuesday it was a truck driver taking shots at a vehicle displaying an American flag and a ‘Make America Great Again’ flag.   American motorists take note: Shots were fired at a truck displaying a “Make America Great Again ‘ flag, Indianapolis state police report.

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) – State police are asking for assistance locating a vehicle that fired several shots at a truck on Interstate 465.   “Police say a white Chevrolet Malibu with Louisiana license plates pulled up alongside a blue 2001 Dodge pick-up truck around 4 p.m. Tuesday. The driver of the truck and a witness say a male passenger in the Malibu held a handgun out the window and fired several shots toward the Dodge.

“One of the bullets struck the pick-up, but the driver was not injured.   “Police say the Dodge was displaying an American flag, as well as a “Make America Great Again” flag in the bed of the truck.  “State Police ask anyone who may have witnessed this exchange to call the Indiana State Police at 317-899-8577.”

The corrosive hatred of the Barack Obama-led Resistance and the Progressives forced into the back seat in the 2016 election is unleashing more crazies on unsuspecting citizens.
Stay safe America.

Treasury acts to disrupt ISIS financing network

Treasury acts to disrupt ISIS financing network

TheHill.com

BY SYLVAN LANE –

The Treasury Department on Thursday targeted an Iraqi national and money transfer company for its ties to ISIS’s financing network.
The agency’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) took action against Umar al Kubaysi and his company, Al Kawthar Money Exchange, blocking them from the United States financial system and freezing any U.S.-based assets.
Officials say Al Kubaysi has moved money for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria since 2006, long before it split off from al Qaeda in Iraq. The Iraqi national helped move funding and arms to ISIS and other insurgent groups across the country and Syria, often through his financial exchange company, according to OFAC. Al Kawthar Money Exchange acted in financial transfers worth approximately $2.5 million with another Iraq-based money exchange associated with the ISIS financial network, according to OFAC.
“The Treasury Department designates those who make it possible to move funds in and out of ISIS-controlled territory as one way to disrupt ISIS’ financing networks.

THEIR FAKE NEWS, LYING, BASHING CONSERVATIVES AND TRUMP IS TAKING IT’S TOLL

Labor Cuts At Liberal Media Outlets, Hundreds Being Let Go

]NICK GIVAS

Major media outlets, including the Huffington Post, The New York Times, NBC, Vocativ, Newsweek and Time Inc., initiated major layoffs of their labor forces Tuesday and Wednesday.   TheNYT and Newsweek have been whispering about mass layoffs for the past year, while HuffPost and Time made their cuts just this week. The move will put hundreds of journalists and media staff out of work while helping digital media continue its rise as the primary source of news and information.
Time announced that it will be laying off about 300 employees through a series of buyouts and layoffs. The move will eliminate 4 percent of its workforce as it looks to cut costs in the midst of lagging sales.   HuffPost is offering its terminated workers a collectively bargained severance of two months’ salary, plus a week of pay for each year of service. Employees will also retain their benefits, including health insurance.   CNN commentator Frida Ghitis took to Twitter to comment on the severance packages, spelling out the math of how much severance someone would receive for 10 years of work.  @mlcalderone Math: If you worked there 10 years of your life, severance is 18 weeks, little more than 4 months.
Many are describing the firings as “corporate-wide layoffs” that were triggered as a result of Verizon purchasing Yahoo, HuffPost’s parent company. However, these aren’t the first news media companies to trim their staffs. Newsweek’s Margarita Noriega tweeted the companies that have begun downsizing the past few months.
Advertisers are increasingly choosing to go with digital media, abandoning hard copy publications in droves.     Michael Calderone tweeted out a statement detailing the firings and how HuffPost will handle them. Employees will continue to meet with management as part of “an ongoing process of labor-management discussions.”

Bikers for Trump dip toe into local politics with Handel-Ossoff contest

It wasn’t exactly your typical Saturday afternoon sight in this sleepy Sandy Plains neighborhood: almost a dozen barrel-chested, leather-clad bikers — led by a quartet of clean-cut high school students, no less — going door to door asking if these 6th District voters plan to support Republican Karen Handel.
But then again, this isn’t your typical special election and this hasn’t been a typical year in politics.
The biker brigade was trying its hand at something new: getting involved on the ground in local congressional races.
“We’re here to put Karen Handel where she needs to be,” one of the bikers told a voter at his front door, “in D.C. supporting President Trump.”
 A member of Bikers for Trump poses outside of a Karen Handel campaign event on June 10, 2017. Tamar Hallerman/AJC
Bikers for Trump formed in 2015 to back the then-Republican candidate whose campaign was viewed by many at the time as quixotic. Chris Cox, the group’s Charleston, S.C.-based leader, said Trump’s anti-establishment bent and pro-veteran, anti-Islamic terror rhetoric appealed to him and other bikers, so he started holding rallies with fellow enthusiasts across the country.
Since Trump’s inauguration, Cox said he noticed voters weren’t giving the president the respect he deserved. So he began channeling the energy of the group’s roughly 260,000 Facebook members into local races.

Puerto Rican voters back statehood in questioned referendum

Webmaster Comment:  I was informed over 40 years ago by a Senator friend in Minnesota the following: If we ever voted Puerto Rico in as a state, it would be the largest welfare state of the 51 states. Apparently this fact is more true today, they are in terrible financial strife, have voted to become a state hoping the congress will follow suit, this way Big Brother can bail them out.
I say No 40 years ago, and I say No today, we do not need more welfare diggers in this country.Puerto Rican voters back statehood in questioned referendum

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Puerto Rico’s governor announced that the U.S. territory has overwhelmingly chosen statehood in a nonbinding referendum Sunday held amid a deep economic crisis that has sparked an exodus of islanders to the U.S. mainland.  Nearly half a million votes were cast for statehood, more than 7,600 for free association/independence and nearly 6,700 for the current territorial status, according to preliminary results. The participation rate was just 23 percent with roughly 2.26 million registered voters, leading opponents to question the validity of a vote that several parties had boycotted.
“From today going forward, the federal government will no longer be able to ignore the voice of the majority of the American citizens in Puerto Rico,” Gov. Ricardo Rossello said, announcing the victory. “It would be highly contradictory for Washington to demand democracy in other parts of the world, and not respond to the legitimate right to self-determination that was exercised today in the American territory of Puerto Rico.”
U.S. Congress, however, has final say in any changes to the island’s political status.

Florida law shifts burden of proof in ‘stand your ground’

Gov. Rick Scott speaks to legislators at the end of the special session, Friday, June 9, 2017, in Tallahassee, Fla.
© AP Photo/Steve Cannon Gov. Rick Scott speaks to legislators at the end of the special session, Friday, June 9, 2017, in Tallahassee, Fla.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida is now the first state with a law that spells out that prosecutors, and not defendants, have the burden of proof in pretrial “stand your ground” hearings.  Republican Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill Friday that will force prosecutors to prove during a pretrial hearing that defendants weren’t acting in self-defense when they committed an act of violence. The law took effect as soon as Scott signed it.
Before Friday, the burden of proof in pretrial hearings was on defendants. The Florida Supreme Court issued a ruling in 2015 that made that clear. Republican lawmakers responded to the ruling by pushing the bill Scott signed.  Only four of the other 21 state “stand your ground” laws mention burden of proof — Alabama, Colorado, Georgia and South Carolina — and all place it on defendants.

This Senator needs to be impeach from her postilion, the Senatorial ethics commission should investigate this.

This Democratic senator’s thoughts on Trump? We can’t write it here.

A DISGRACE TO AMERICA SHE DOES NOT REPRESENT MY COUNTRY!
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) addresses the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on July 25, 2016.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is not known to shy away from colorful language.   The Democratic senator from New York, whose name has been floated as a possible 2020 presidential candidate, didn’t hold back Friday, sprinkling her speech with a couple of F-bombs and other informal words.   “Has he kept his promises? Gillibrand asked the audience of President Trump.
“No,” the crowd said.  Gillibrand’s off-the-cuff response: “F— no.”   Gillibrand, who’s voted down nearly every Trump appointee, was addressing a young crowd at the Personal Democracy Forum at New York University.
“Fundamentally, if we are not helping people, we should go the f— home,” Gillibrand said, quoting herself from a New York Magazine profile story that published last month. “And that should be our North Star. … Too often in Congress, on both sides of the aisle, that basic construct gets blown away by the silly parlor games of who’s up, who’s down, all the jockeying and posturing that happens on Capitol Hill. But for these working families, they want us to cut out the B.S.”
She added later: “It’s not about the party; it’s about the people. And I can tell you the people are pissed.”
Glen Caplin, a spokesman for Gillibrand, said the choice of language isn’t because of a change in tone or some kind of a new strategy. In 2014, Gillibrand told the Hill that she found cursing “seems to express” what she’s trying to say better, although she’d been trying to squelch tendencies to do so in public.
“She definitely had to put a couple of dollars in the swear jar last night, but she’s comfortable being who she is,” Caplin said.

Texans Rally for March Against Sharia
by MERRILL HOPE11 Jun 2017376

DALLAS, Texas — ACT for America, the nation’s largest grassroots organization devoted to promoting national security and defeating terrorism, organized marches “against Sharia andfor human rights” in 28 U.S. cities. In Texas, the rallies took place on Saturday in Dallas, Houston, and Austin.
In Texas, only the Austin March Against Sharia got a bit dicey.
The Austin American-Statesman reported a tense situation at the Texas State Capitol where dozens rallied against Sharia law and many more railed against them. Texas Department of Public Safety troopers, some in riot gear, others on horseback, maintained positions outside the Capitol to keep the two groups separate and secure the surrounding streets. In total, hundreds came out, officials reported.  During the course of the day, around 40 anti-Sharia protesters carried American flags and wore MAGA hats while 80 counter-demonstrators called anti-Sharia people racists, Nazis, and Islamophobes, according to the Austin newspaper.

POLLAK: James Comey’s Admission Means Special Counsel Must Be Dropped

James Comey Robert Mueller (Win McNamee / Getty)
by JOEL B. POLLAK9 Jun 20171407

Former FBI director James Comey made a major mistake at his hearing at the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday when he revealed that he had deliberately leaked a memorandum of a conversation with the president because he “thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”
Aside from the legal jeopardy that Comey may face as a result of having leaked a government document as a private citizen, Comey has now undermined Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation by revealing it to be a deliberate political setup.
Earlier in the hearing, Comey had praised the special counsel as a critical tool to discover the truth about Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election: “Understanding what efforts there were or are by the Russian government to influence our government is a critical part of the FBI’s mission, so — and you’ve got the right person in Bob Mueller to lead it,” he said.
But later, Comey said that he had hoped to “prompt the appointment of a special counsel” for reasons that had nothing to do with Russia. Comey leaked his memo, he said, so that he could corroborate claims by aides that he told them Trump had asked for his “loyalty.”
The Times reported those leaked claims on May 11, and Trump denied them the following day, accusing Comey of leaking to the press. Three days later, Comey told the Senate, he remembered the memo and leaked it.
He knew Trump was not under investigation for ties to Russia — a fact he refused to divulge publicly — but pushed for a special counsel to be appointed because he wanted to take revenge on the president. He leaked through Columbia Law School professor Daniel Richman, who approached the New York Times. (It was a left-wing trifecta: a former government bureaucrat, an Ivy League academic, and a liberal mainstream media outlet.)

The president’s allies, both within the White House and in friendly media outlets, say the answer is yes. Trump himself has complained repeatedly that he is being victimized by underhanded leaks.   To Trump’s critics, the talks of a deep state amounts to a conspiracy theory that has been pushed toward the mainstream from the wildest corners of right-wing media.

Trump reignites debate over travel ban

News Alert
President Trump this weekend reignited the debate over his travel ban following an attack Saturday in London that killed at least seven people and wounded dozens more.
After reports of the London attack, Trump on Saturday renewed his call for the courts to approve his executive order which temporarily bars nationals from six predominately Muslim countries from entering the U.S.

Rumors of Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement have swirled for months but recently reached a fever pitch inside the Beltway. Shortly after the presidential election in November, the Supreme Court shot down speculation that Kennedy would leave the high court this year. But Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Chuck Grassley of Iowa, both Senate Judiciary Committee members, have said that they expect another vacancy this summer.

 Elizabeth Wydra, president of the liberal Constitutional Accountability Center, wrote an opinion piece this week urging, “Justice Kennedy, don’t abandon your legacy.”

“In the Trump era — with a Senate confirmation process now subject to a simple majority vote, thanks to McConnell and Senate Republicans — it is impossible to imagine any stronger or more able steward of Justice Kennedy’s legacy than Kennedy himself,” Wydra wrote. “Despite all the pressure and pointed rumors of his retirement, he surely realizes this.
