Trump Re-Nominates Conservative Judges For 9th Circuit Reshape, Kamala & Feinstein NOT Happy

Published

on

California Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris are not happy. Which, conversely, makes me smile. They tore into the White House after President Trump re-nominated two conservative California judges to the infamous 9th Circuit Federal Appeals Court over their opposition. Smart move by Trump and no sympathy for Feinstein and Harris. That 9th Circuit Court needed a judicial enema long ago.

“We are deeply disappointed that the White House has chosen to re-nominate Daniel Collins and Kenneth Lee to the 9th Circuit,” Feinstein and Harris said in a joint statement late Wednesday. “We made clear our opposition to these individuals and told the White House we wanted to work together to come to consensus on a new package of nominees.” Well, boo hoo! They are not in charge and thank goodness Trump is.

The White House put out an announcement for the nomination of Collins and Lee. They also announced other judicial nominations and Daniel A. Bress was nominated to the 9th Circuit as well. Feinstein and Harris say they lack experience… what they mean is that they are conservative and unacceptable to the Marxist left.

This effectively bypasses the traditional “blue-slip” process where senators of the home state of the nominee give their consent to the pick. You can’t cut deals with radicalized liberals anymore and Trump sees that. No courtesy has been extended to Trump by the left. This is quid pro quo.

From Fox News:

“Last week, the White House had announced the re-nomination of 51 federal judicial nominees left over from the previous Congress, kickstarting the administration’s effort to install more conservative judges after GOP activists worried that such appointments had stalled.

“Collins and Lee, however, were not initially nominated again, because of negotiations between the White House and Harris and Feinstein. They were first nominated in October.

“Conservative activists protested those negotiations, though, as the Wall Street Journal editorial board drew attention to the situation and argued that both Feinstein and Harris “were two of the worst mudslingers on the Judiciary Committee that smeared Brett Kavanaugh.”

“Why on earth would the WH agree to tarnish its sterling legacy of circuit court judges & abandon the opportunity to improve the notorious 9th Cir to help Sens (and a would-be POTUS challenger) who are shafting him every chance they get?” tweeted Carrie Severino, the chief counsel and policy director of the Judicial Crisis Network.

“Ken Blackwell, the former Ohio secretary of state, had said the White House’s failure to re-nominate the judges was “hugely demoralizing.”

“No deals with Senate liberals,” Blackwell wrote on Facebook.

“The liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, with a sprawling purview representing nine Western states, has long been a thorn in the side of the Trump White House, with rulings against the travel ban and limits on funding to “sanctuary cities.”

“On Thursday, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, praised Trump’s nomination of Collins, Lee and Bress.

“I’m very supportive of the nominees submitted by President Trump to serve on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. These are highly qualified nominees and I am hopeful they will receive wide bipartisan support,” Graham said. “These nominations continue a trend by the Trump Administration of selecting highly qualified men and women to serve on the federal bench.”’

Feinstein and Harris are insulted and Americans could care less over this. We’ve waited a long time for sanity to be restored to the 9th Circuit and Trump is doing just that. The president also squelched a rebellion by Republican conservatives over a rumor he was thinking of striking a deal with Feinstein and Harris. That would have been political suicide.

“We are relieved to see that the White House has decided to move forward with a list of extraordinarily qualified nominees,” said Carrie Severino, chief counsel for the conservative Judicial Crisis Network.

“Why do we need to do a deal? This is totally within our purview. We can do this with 51 votes, and we’ve shown that we can do that. We stuck together as a Republican caucus in the Senate and delivered results for the president. And he has sent up really good candidates,” said Sen. David Perdue, a Georgia Republican close to Trump. He told this to conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Wednesday morning.

As I said and as Blackwell said… no deals with Senate liberals… period. Feinstein and Harris can cry into their progressive tea and lick their wounds. They won’t be getting their way over the 9th Circuit.

Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Apprehend Over 164,000 Illegals In Less Than 7 Months

Published

This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was edited and republished with permission:

The Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol has apprehended more than 164,000 illegal immigrants in less than seven months. That’s simply staggering. They were taken into custody between Brownsville and Del Rio during the first seven months of fiscal 2019. Approximately 162,000 illegal immigrants were taken into custody during all of 2018 so this breaks that record.

Apprehended migrants are separated into three categories: Unaccompanied children, family units and single adults. Each category showed steep increases, according to Customs and Border Protection figures. They are simply being swarmed and overwhelmed on the southern border. That’s a military tactic by the way and it’s working.

From the Caller Times:

“From Oct. 1 through March 31, the number of unaccompanied children in the sector was up 56 percent compared with the same period the year before. Family unit apprehensions were up nearly 230 percent. And the apprehension of single adults was up 31 percent.

“The southwestern United States is divided up among nine Customs and Border Protection sectors. The Rio Grande Sector is by far the busiest with an average of about 1,100 migrants per day taken into custody.

“According to the US Department of Health and Human Services’ budget documents, providing care for unaccompanied children taken into custody by immigration authorities has been costing about $1.5 billion a year for the past few years. But the number could top $2 billion for the new budget year that begins in October, the agency said.

“The apprehension figures do not include migrants who show up at U.S. ports of entry to seek asylum.”

U.S. Customs and Border Protection released the following statement:

“Release Date: April 23, 2019

“EDINBURG, Texas – The U.S. Border Patrol Rio Grande Valley Sector continues to experience unprecedented numbers in illegal alien apprehensions.

“Less than seven months into the fiscal year, the Rio Grande Valley Sector of the U.S. Border Patrol Sector has apprehended more than 164,000 people to date, surpassing the total number of apprehensions made in fiscal year 2018. The sector continues to work with its federal, state, local and non-governmental partners in addressing the influx of Central and South American migrants crossing into South Texas.

“On average, Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley arrest more than 1100 people per day.”

The increase is the result of an ongoing surge of migrants, most of them from Central America, who are crossing the border to seek asylum. The 2019 total for the Rio Grande Valley includes 15,310 unaccompanied minors apprehended from October through March — compared to 23,760 during the entire 2018 fiscal year — and 79,000 people who were traveling in families during the same time frame, which has already surpassed the 63,280 family members apprehended in 2018. The Border Patrol has reported similar increases along the entire southwest border.

President Trump has tried repeatedly to get funding for a wall and security on our southern border and the Democrats have obstructed him at every step. We are being invaded and this is an attack using swarming tactics. The U.S. is under siege… just build the wall already and stop all immigration for a period of time while this is sorted out. It is a brutal act of war and the violence will skyrockets as the invasion steadily increases. #WeBuildTheWall

Under Bernie’s Plan, 183K Murderers, 164K Rapists Would Be Allowed To Vote From Prison

Published

on

Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) statement that those in prison should be allowed to vote is far more sweeping than most know. His proposal would allow some 183,000 convicted murderers and 164,000 convicted rapists to vote from their jail cells. In a CNN town hall this week, Sanders endorsed allowing all convicted U.S. citizens to vote from prison – including the Boston Marathon Bomber. It’s not a new stance for him… he’s always supported the felon vote.

“So, I believe people who commit crimes, they pay the price and they get out of jail, they certainly should have the right to vote,” Sanders said. “But, I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, but that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.”

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) doesn’t want to be left out of this insanity either. She openly hinted that she would be open to such a plan, saying “I think we should have that conversation” when asked about allowing convicted criminals to vote from their cells. Of course, she is also saying she will use an executive order for gun control if she is elected president.

From Breitbart:

“The latest data compiled by the Prison Policy Initiative concludes that there are more than 1.6 million convicted criminals in local, state, and federal prisons across the country. This includes about 183,000 convicted murderers and 164,000 convicted rapists.

“Not all 1.6 million convicted criminals in local, state, and federal custody are American citizens, though. State and local prisons have yet to collect data deciphering between the citizen versus noncitizen populations of their prison populations.

“Federal data concludes that noncitizens make up about 25 percent of the federal prison population.

“Should this be true of local and state prisons, as well, this would mean that about 1.2 million convicted criminals in prison today could be eligible to vote from their cells under Sanders’ plan — including anywhere between 137,000 and 183,000 convicted murderers and potentially between 123,000 to 164,000 convicted rapists.

“Similarly, the Sanders plan would potentially allow anywhere between 14,250 and 19,000 citizens convicted of manslaughter to vote from their cells, as well as up to 154,000 convicted assailants.

“Ahead of the 2020 presidential election, as Breitbart News has reported, organizations funded by billionaire George Soros are working to restore the voting rights of about 1.4 million felons in Florida after the state approved the measure last year.”

Even Piers Morgan, who I sometimes agree with, but who is a rabid gun control advocate, thinks that Sanders is a lunatic for suggesting this. “I couldn’t really believe what I was hearing,” said Morgan, a former CNN host and DailyMail.com editor-at-large, calling the idea “utter lunacy.” He expressed disbelief that any Democrat could support such a proposal and believe they can defeat President Trump in 2020. He’s absolutely right. It’s a gift to Trump.

Carlson said Democrats don’t trust convicted felons “to go deer hunting” but are okay with them choosing the next president. “What they’re really saying is ‘we don’t care at all about anything. We’re nihilists, all we want is power and if we see a reservoir of potential voters, we’re gonna tap that reservoir,'” he said.

Bingo… that’s exactly what I’ve been saying for some time about the Democrats. It will backfire and Trump will get a second term because of it.
