Rosenstein to unleash 300 Federal Prosecutors to vett Kavanaugh

 

Let me give this story a post one last time. Rosenstein says he needs these prosecutors to “review” the documents of Kavanaugh. Why is Rosenstein taking this over? Kavanaugh was vetted when he took his seat on the D.C.court. For the last two years we kept hearing how this fellow had been looked over by the attorneys and everyone else of consequence.

Ah, but here is the story. Kavanaugh has a long rich history with years of documents to pour through and surely a little pay dirt can be found. Does anyone think this will get done in time for the fall election?

First, he was involved in the Bush Florida debacle of vote counting that went to the Supremes. Great. All those documents will be reviewed. Then we have all the years of the Starr investigation.

Lets do Whitewater one more time. Then all those opinions during the Bush years.

Now that will be rich going down that memory lane looking for Kavanuagh misdeeds. After all, that’s what prosecutors do. Hmm I wonder if the prosecutors will look into his handling of Vince Foster death?

We have years with the Bush and his position. All these documents!

A protégé of Kenneth Starr, Kavanaugh played a lead role in drafting the Starr report, which urged the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.[1] Kavanaugh also led the investigation into the suicide of Clinton aide Vincent Foster. (Yes, he was young but was willing to play the game, forget the morality of it and take the hit for the swamp.)

After the 2000 U.S. Presidential election, in which Kavanaugh worked for the George W. Bush campaign in the Florida recount,

Kavanaugh joined Bush’s staff.Prior to his Supreme Court clerkship, Kavanaugh earned a one-year fellowship in the Office of the Solicitor General of the United States, Kenneth Starr, during which he worked on the Whitewater investigation.

After George W. Bush became president in 2001, Kavanaugh served for two years as Senior Associate Counsel and Associate Counsel to the President. In that capacity, he worked on the numerous constitutional, legal, and ethical issues handled by that office. Starting in 2003, he served as Assistant to the President and Staff Secretary. In that capacity, he was responsible for coordinating all documents to and from the president.

Plus there are issues with the 9th circuit where he clerked for a judge that was forced to a speedy resignation. It will be claimed that Kavanaugh knew what was going on.

Few appreciates what this means.  This will turn the election into a total nightmare and kattie bar the door.

They will make sure there is dirt..

I am totally done…..where the heck is Sessions and why did he turn this over to Rosenstein?

The New York Times reported:

 Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday.

Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide.

But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each office to provide up to three federal prosecutors “who can make this important project a priority for the next several weeks.” Names were to be submitted to Mr. Rosenstein’s office by the end of Wednesday.

Flashback: Pelosi claims Supremes did ‘violence to our democracy’

 

Shall we do a Flashback and whatever happened to thug AFL-CIO Richard Trumka? He appears along side Pelosi as she now claims the Supremes are a “violent” sort of thing. So first let’s watch Nancy gin up the crowd and now we know what is ahead of us for one long hot summer. Trumka back in action.

 

Thursday at a press conference, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the Supreme Court’s decision on Janus v. AFSCME, which struck down laws requiring government workers to pay union fees, was “violence to our democracy.”

Pelosi said, “Now, yesterday, they did violence to our democracy by trying to diminish the voices of working people.”

She continued, “That’s not the American way. Their decision does violence to the First Amendment.”

The “Tell” is that she is appearing with AFL-CIO Richard Trumka – let’s do a flashback then.

 

 

AFL-CIO Richard Trumka and the Murder of Eddie York

 

…snip

Take the murder of Eddie York, a nonunion contractor, who was shot in the back of the head and killed while leaving a worksite in 1993. Trumka and other UMW officials were charged in a $27 million wrongful death suit by Eddie York’s widow. After fighting the suit intensely for four years, UMW lawyers settled suddenly in 1997 — just two days after the judge in the case ruled evidence in the criminal trial would be admitted.

Later, as Secretary-Treasurer of the AFL-CIO, Trumka pleaded the Fifth Amendment before Congress and a court-appointed election monitor over his role in an illegal fundraising scheme to benefit the Teamsters president Ron Carey’s re-election. Trumka has remained in his position ever since despite an AFL-CIO rule (adopted in 1957) which held that union officials who plead the Fifth have “no right to continue to hold office” in the union umbrella organization.

Flashback to 2009. Nancy had a different view regarding rhetoric didn’t she, as we sucked it up with Obama and his policies.

 

 

A comment made on the clip:

Published on Sep 18, 2009
“The Speaker is now likening genuine opposition to assassination. Such insulting rhetoric not only undermines the credibility of her office, but it underscores the desperate attempt by her party to divert attention away from a failing agenda. During one of the most important policy debates of our time, the American people have been completely abandoned by those elected representatives under her control. Voters are justifiably frustrated with Washington, and the Speaker’s verbal assault on voters accomplishes nothing other than furthering her reputation for being wildly out of touch with the American people.” I saw this and had to post it..Where were all her concerns when Bush was in office?..Movies were made about his death. He was called a liar, Hitler, a murderer, dumb, war monger, ect. I guess when it comes to liberals like this moron, dissent against big government is “Racist and un-American”..but its ok when the left does it. When ever the left had there war protests, at least 100-200 people were arrested because of violent actions on their part. At the “Tea Parties” do you know how many arrests were made?….Zero. Nancy, do us all a favor and shut yer pie-hole…

UK: Irish Pastor Faces Prison for “Grossly Offending” Islam

No, this isn’t Pakistan, or some other Muslim country. It is Northern Ireland. Think this can’t happen here? Last week’s Supreme Court ruling sets the table. Keep your eye on this one. Here we go:

An evangelical Christian pastor in Northern Ireland is being prosecuted for making “grossly offensive” remarks about Islam.

Pastor James McConnell of Belfast: “I have no regrets about what I said. I do not hate Muslims, but I denounce Islam as a doctrine and I make no apologies for that. I will be pleading ‘not guilty’ when I stand in the dock in August.”

James McConnell, 78, is facing up to six months in prison for delivering a sermon in which he described Islam as “heathen” and “satanic.” The message was streamed live on the Internet, and a Muslim group called the police to complain.

According to Northern Ireland’s Public Prosecution Service (PPS), McConnell violated the 2003 Communications Act by “sending, or causing to be sent, by means of a public electronic communications network, a message or other matter that was grossly offensive.”

Observers say that McConnell’s prosecution is one of a growing number of examples in which British authorities — who routinely ignore incendiary speech by Muslim extremists — are using hate speech laws to silence Christians.

McConnell, who turned down an offer to avoid a trial, says the issue of Christians being singled out for persecution in Britain must be confronted, and that he intends to turn his case into a milestone trial “in defense of freedom of speech and freedom of religion.”

McConnell’s comments about Islam comprised less than ten minutes of a 35-minute sermon that focused on Christian theology.

The blowback was as swift as it was predictable. The Belfast Islamic Center, which claims to represent all of the 4,000 Muslims thought to be living in Northern Ireland, complained to police, who dutifully launched an investigation into whether there was a “hate crime motive” behind McConnell’s remarks.

McConnell later issued a public apology, but he refused to recant. He also rejected a so-called informed warning. Such warnings are not convictions, but they are recorded on a person’s criminal record for 12 months. Anyone who refuses to accept the warning can be prosecuted, and McConnell now faces six months in prison. The first hearing of his case is set for August 6.

Supreme Court slaps Obama down unanimously once again

Once again the entire Supreme Court knocks down the Obama administration. Funny, this didn’t seem to make the news. This adds up to over 20 unanimous decisions that went against him. His two Supreme picks apparently are not so ready to move to a totalitarian government. Sweet. Here we go:

The Supreme Court ruled unanimously Wednesday that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission must make “good faith” efforts to seek reconciliation before it sues a business for discrimination, under Title 7 of the Civil Rights Act. The decision was a strong rebuke to the commission, which had previously asserted that the courts had no jurisdiction over its reconciliation process.

The Chamber of Commerce highlighted the case in a lengthy study published last year that argued the commission under Obama was pursuing a “scorched earth” litigation strategy against employers.The opinion was authored by Justice Elena Kagan, an appointee of President Obama.

The justices struck that ruling down, saying the plain language of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes clear that Congress did intend for the courts to have oversight. “Congress rarely intends to prevent courts from enforcing its directives to federal agencies,” Kagan’s opinion stated.”

Congress imposed a mandatory duty on the EEOC to attempt conciliation and made that duty a precondition to filing a lawsuit. Such compulsory prerequisites are routinely enforced by courts in Title VII litigation. And though Congress gave the EEOC wide latitude to choose which ‘informal methods’ to use, it did not deprive courts of judicially manageable criteria by which to review the conciliation process,” the court ruled in the case EEOC v. Mach Mining.

Appeals court unfriendly to Obama’s illegal immigration move

Wins are few and far between these days. But this one would stall Obama and his latest round of illegals’ reward for stopping by. Looks like the Appeals court wasn’t so friendly. Probably going to the Supremes.

Politico reports:

A federal appeals court signaled Friday that it is unlikely to allow President Barack Obama’s request to go ahead with a new round of relief for illegal immigrants, making it likely that the White House will have to take its legal case to the Supreme Court within days.

The oral arguments before the 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in New Orleans were being closely watched by both sides in the heated immigration debate as a sign of whether the administration will be able to move forward with its plan to grant quasi-legal status and work permits to about 4 million illegal immigrants. Notably, one Republican-appointed judge used the president’s own comments to put the Justice Department on the defensive.

There’s more:

Judge Jennifer Elrod. a Republican appointee, suggested that Obama’s own statements about the program undermined the federal government’s claims that immigration officials retain case-by-case discretion. She referenced a televised town hall meeting in Miami in February when Obama said that there would be consequences for government employees who ignored his directives to grant deferred action to those who are eligible.

Final nail in the Obamacare coffin coming? Supremes to hear

Talk about the ultimate feel good moment for the week? Taking down Obamacare would be a super “twofer.” Knocking Obama’s socks off on Tuesday’s election, and then taking down his “signature” achievement. I am no legal wizard but this little sentence seems to make it clear to me:

The legal dispute centers on a four-word statutory phrase. The law says people qualify for tax credits when they buy insurance on an online marketplace “established by the state.”

Now if Roberts can swallow his pride and accept what a nonsensical vote he made that gave us this monstrosity, and the NSA doesn’t have a whole lot on him, we might just do it. Decision should could out in June. Here we go:

The U.S. Supreme Court agreed to consider a challenge to the subsidies that are a linchpin of President Barack Obama’s health-care overhaul, accepting a case that suddenly puts the law under a new legal cloud.

Two years after upholding much of the law by a single vote, the justices today said they will hear a Republican-backed appeal targeting tax credits that have helped more than 4 million people afford insurance.

A ruling blocking those credits might unravel the law, making other provisions ineffective and potentially destabilizing insurance markets in much of the country. The high court’s decision to hear the case comes days before the start of the law’s second open-enrollment season Nov. 15. A decision will come by June.

The justices will consider an appeal filed by four Virginia residents seeking to block the subsidies in 36 states. The appeal says the Obama administration is engaging in a “gross distortion” of the law’s wording by granting billions of dollars in tax credits to people in those states.

Eric Holder strikes again – releases Lynne Stewart who aided first World Trade bomber

Anyone recall  Lynne Stewart? The attorney for the blind sheik who was involved in the first World Trade Tower’s bombing that maimed and killed Americans. So she doesn’t want to die in a strange and loveless place.

Should we be surprised? Recall from a post September, 2009: The U.S. Congress rushes to confirm an Attorney General, Eric Holder, whose law firm we later find out represents seventeen Gitmo Terrorists.

 Where is Eric Holder in all of this? How about THAT –

From the Law firm’s C & B website:

The firm represents 17 Yemeni nationals and one Pakistani citizen held at Guantánamo Bay. The Supreme Court will soon review the D.C. Circuit’s ruling that ordered the dismissal of a number of habeas petitions filed by Guantánamo detainees; some of our clients are petitioners in the Supreme Court case. We expect to play a substantial role in the briefing. We also plan to petition the Supreme Court to hear our Pakistani client’s appeal from the D.C. Circuit’s order dismissing his case. Further, we are pursuing relief in the D.C. Circuit under the Detainee Treatment Act of 2005 for all of our clients. On a separate front, we filed amicus briefs and coordinated the amicus effort in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld in which the Supreme Court in the summer of 2006 invalidated President Bush’s military commissions and in which we have obtained favorable rulings that our clients have rights under the Fifth Amendment and the Geneva Conventions.

A federal judge in Manhattan has granted the “compassionate release” from prison for radical lawyer Lynne Stewart so she can die a free woman.

Stewart, 73, who is four years into a 10-year prison sentence for passing along messages from imprisoned terror mastermind Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman to his followers, has terminal cancer and less than 18 months to live.

The joint filing Tuesday by the Bureau of Prisons and the U.S. Attorney’s office asks Judge John Koeltl to grant her a “compassionate release.” Read more: NY Daily News

Perhaps this quote from Adams will give pause:

Democracy… while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.
