Immigration reform: Keep it small, keep it real
Washington Examiner [DC], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/14/2018 4:48:17 AM

President Trump likes to do "yuge" things: tall hotels, massive walls, big deals. Congress, meanwhile, tends to make bills more complex as parochial interests and powerful lobbies tack their favored provisions on to bills as they move through the Capitol. For any immigration bill, these habits would be fatal. Congress and Trump should pass a small immigration deal, resisting any push for “comprehensive" immigration reform. In fact, the House bill probably already has too much clutter. The White House’s press release generally supporting the bill sponsored by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., noted only four provisions: “The president looks forward

Wow, an article calling for actual, original definition conservatism, even admitting that Trump´s suggested bill was both ´small´ and ´real´ (conservative)... after getting their little dig in at the beginning of the article.

Come on Examiner, you can do it!

Government ´reform´ always sounds like a scene from A Clockwork Orange.

I prefer some other ´re´ words: reduce, restrict, redefine, remove.

Why Maxine Waters Is Going Crazy
PJ Media, by Roger L. Simon    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/6/2018 4:50:27     Post Reply
Maxine Waters has never been the mildest and most judicious of politicians, but there is a method to her current (extreme) madness. She does have something to be afraid of. Identity politics -- her bread and butter -- is, for the first time in years, in some trouble. This is particularly true in the black community, where Donald Trump´s approval level is climbing. And the reason for this isn´t all Kanye West. African Americans have the lowest unemployment rate ever under Trump and are beginning to have more cash and better lives. This is not good for Maxine and she knows it.

Anthony Bourdain worth only
$1.21M at the time of his death
New York Post, by Julia Marsh    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/6/2018 4:40:09     Post Reply
The late TV chef Anthony Bourdain was worth just $1.21 million when he hanged himself last month, new legal filings revealed Thursday. Previous estimates had pegged his fortune at $16 million. Bourdain’s will leaves the bulk of his money to his 11-year-old daughter Ariane Busia-Bourdain and the control over his estate to her mother, his estranged wife Ottavia Busia-Bourdain. It was filed in Manhattan Surrogate’s Court. His assets include $425,000 in “cash and savings,” $35,000 in a brokerage account, $250,000 and “personal property,” and $500,000 in “intangible property including royalties and residuals,” according to court papers. The documents do not list the East 94th

Last Friday Bill Clinton and James Patterson took the book tour for their co-written thriller, “The President is Missing,” to the Daily Show. Host Trevor Noah spent most of the interview talking about the book, but eventually asked Clinton about an awkward previous stop on the book tour when Clinton erupted over a question about Monica Lewinsky.(Snip)Clearly, Clinton has been coached since then. When Trevor Noah recalled that previous interview, Clinton immediately admitted it was not his “best hour.” A bit later he struck an apologetic tone and then immediately stepped on it by once again claiming the facts were

Protester who climbed Statue of

The woman who scaled Lady Liberty on the Fourth of July was formally charged in federal court Thursday. Therese Okoumou, 44, of Staten Island, New York, was charged with trespassing, interference with agency functions and disorderly conduct, prosecutors said. Each charge carries a maximum penalty of six months in prison or a fine. “As alleged in the information, the defendant staged a dangerous stunt that alarmed the public and endangered her own life and the lives of the NYPD officers who responded to the scene. While we must and do respect the rights of the people to peaceable protest, that right does

Why EPA’s Scott Pruitt had to go
(and what to expect from the EPA now)
Fox News, by John Fund    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/6/2018 4:25:10     Post Reply
Why did Scott Pruitt, the embattled administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, resign Thursday after surviving months of unfavorable news stories involving his controversial actions and allegations that that he had behaved unethically – and possibly illegally – in office? First, it’s always good for a White House when a resignation breaks over a holiday period and attention is focused elsewhere. But more importantly, pressure rose for Pruitt to step down when his travails shifted from the merely humiliating to potential legal violations. Earlier Thursday, two Democratic House members had demanded the EPA’s inspector general probe whether Pruitt might have hidden or

Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinds
guidance safeguarding the right of refugees,
asylum seekers to work in the U.S.
New York Daily News, by Chris Sommerfeldt    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/5/2018 4:52:23     Post Reply
Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday rescinded a 2011 Justice Department guidance mandating that asylum seekers and refugees have a “right” to work in the U.S. The Obama-era document was included on a list of 24 Justice Department guidances that Sessions scrapped because he said they were “unnecessary, outdated, inconsistent with existing law” or imposed without congressional approval. “That’s wrong, and it’s not good government,” Sessions said in a statement. The 2011 guidance, which was issued by the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-related Unfair Employment Practices, ensured asylum seekers and refugees were “authorized to work indefinitely” and could obtain Social Security cards

The woman who scaled the Statue of Liberty on Wednesday has been identified. Cops say Therese Patricia Okoumou — a 44-year-old immigrant from the Democratic Republic of the Congo — was the person responsible for the Fourth of July protest. She lives in the St. George neighborhood of Staten Island and is currently in federal custody, according to police sources. Officers from the NYPD’s Emergency Service Unit transported her to a federal detention center on Wednesday night following her three-hour standoff with authorities. Her case is being handled by prosecutors in the Southern District of New York. Sources said that

The Martha’s Vineyard crowd
strikes back at Alan Dershowitz
Boston Globe, by Mark Shanahan    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/5/2018 4:43:42     Post Reply
For years, former Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz and some of his high-profile pals have spent summer afternoons opining on the porch at the Chilmark General Store on Martha’s Vineyard. Not this summer, and maybe never again. As a result of Dershowitz’s vocal opposition to the appointment of a special counsel to investigate President Trump’s ties to Russia, the coffee klatch has turned combative. In recent days, the clique has been exchanging bitter e-mails that lay bare the anger over Dershowitz’s seeming support for the president, which is a no-no on the Vineyard, a liberal enclave that has great antipathy for

The real meaning of Democrats’
Supreme Court panic
New York Post, by Ben Shapiro    Original Article

Democrats are in a state of sheer panic. They’re panicking because last week, Justice Anthony Kennedy — a reliable vote in favor of certain leftist priorities including abortion and same-sex marriage — announced that he will step down from the Supreme Court, leaving President Trump a second selection. This apparently will lead to the end of a free America. According to Jeffrey Toobin of CNN, the remade Supreme Court will spell doom: “Abortion illegal; doctors prosecuted; gay people barred from restaurants, hotels, stores; African-Americans out of elite schools; gun control banned in 50 states; the end of regulatory state.” None

One of the Great 4th of July Speeches
Weekly Standard, by Geoffrey Norman    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/4/2018 5:11:00     Post Reply
One of the great July 4th speeches was delivered by a shy man who played baseball for a living. Lou Gehrig played every day, never took a game off, until he was told, at age 35, that he was dying. More than 60,000 fans and former teammates came out to Yankee Stadium to honor him. Between the two games of the doubleheader, he came out of the Yankee’s dugout and stood, listening as former teammates spoke into the microphones that had been set up behind home plate. He was embarrassed enough by their words that he teared up. Among those

Charlie Baker signs ‘red flag’ bill

Gov. Charlie Baker signed into law a “red flag” measure that will let household members seek a court order to take guns from people posing a risk to themselves or others. The bill strengthening the state’s already restrictive gun laws allows family or household members to petition a judge for an extreme risk protection order to remove guns from a person at risk of harming themselves or others and bar them from possessing firearms for up to a year. Gun owners can appeal the order to show they are not a danger and have their guns returned. Baker called the extreme risk

Don’t Want To Abolish ICE

“Abolish ICE” isn’t a solution, argues my colleague Ed Morrissey at the Daily Beast today, it’s a slogan. Indeed, and that’s being generous. It started as a Twitter hashtag, per HuffPost. As the phrase started showing up more online, desperate opportunists like Kirsten Gillibrand who are looking for an angle to shore up their left flank in the 2020 primaries glommed onto it. Just like that, the hashtag #AbolishICE had become the slogan “Abolish ICE,” which had in turn become a semi-serious policy proposed by a semi-serious U.S. senator. And once it did, other supposedly serious 2020 contenders had to

Episcopal Church considers
making God gender neutral

The Episcopal Church formed a committee Wednesday to “provide a pathway” toward revising the Book of Common Prayer to include gender-neutral language. Church leaders called for immediate revisions to correct the “overwhelming use of masculine language” throughout the book, arguing that the language is now a hindrance to spiritual inclusion, according to the Episcopal Church website. (Snip) Kathleen Moore, a seminarian from the Diocese of Vermont, said she tries to help the youth see that gendered language gets in the way of faith in God. “Let’s let God be God,” Moore told the religious news agency.

That´s right: Hillary Clinton is running for president again in 2020. She has actually ramped up her campaign since her defeat in 2016! From her Twitter feed to university speeches to appearances abroad – from Ireland to Australia to India – the "I´m with her" campaign continues. (snip) The Clintons, because of their money, fixers, connections, and long held positions of power, are still widely feared in the Democratic Party. Few, if any, Democrats will risk criticizing Hillary Clinton, knowing they may appear in Trump campaign ads. Such contrariness is hazardous to a Democrat´s career and quite possibly to his

At least three suspected rhino poachers have been killed by a pride of lions after they broke into a game reserve in South Africa. Rangers discovered human remains around 4:30 p.m. local time on July 3 in the immediate vicinity of the lions’ territory at the Sibuya Game Reserve in Kenton-on-Sea in the Eastern Cape, more than 24 hours after an anti-poaching dog alerted her handler that something was amiss. The ranger however did not examine the disturbance further because it was not unusual to hear the lions at night. When members of the anti-poaching unit investigated, they recovered human

An activist author ignited a social media firestorm on Thursday after saying she was left “very confused” seeing a black man with a pro-NRA and Tea Party bumper-sticker on his car. Kimberley Johnson, a feminist contributor to HuffPost and the spokeswoman for the national advocacy group We Are Woman, was slammed for questioning why a black person would not embrace progressive politics. “Out on the road the other day I saw an affluent black man driving a BMW with two bumper-stickers.

The extent to which Roe v. Wade has come to dominate American politics can be found in the anguished cries that followed the announcement of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court. There are other issues that people care about, but Roe forms the centerpiece of any discussion about what a post-Kennedy court might look like. I am myself uneasily pro-choice. Moreover, just a few days ago, I argued that the increasingly bitter judicial wars tearing apart today’s politics can only be ended with more judicial deference to legislatures and to precedent. It stands to reason that I would

Rep. Jim Jordan appeared on Fox News for an interview with Bret Baier, who grilled him on the allegations that he ignored sexual abuse when he was a wrestling coach at Ohio State. Jordan, a Republican member of the House Freedom Caucus who coached wrestling at Ohio State from 1986 to 1994, denied any knowledge of alleged abuse by the team’s doctor, Richard Strauss, who died in 2005. Baier played a video of Mike DiSabato — one wrestler who has appeared on CNN repeatedly to accuse Jordan of knowing about the abuse — claiming talk of the abuse was frequent
