Judicial Nominees, Plans at

Breitbart Big Government, by Ken Klukowski

Posted By:earlybird, 2/9/2018 10:37:35 AM

WASHINGTON, DC – Chairman Chuck Grassley’s (R-IA) Senate Judiciary Committee (SJC) sent four more judicial nominees to the Senate floor and plans to pass another four at its next business meeting, advancing President Trump’s persistent march to keep his campaign promise of reshaping the federal judiciary. Senators on Thursday voted to send three federal trial court nominees and one federal appeals court nominee to the full Senate, where they are expected to be approved. In a sign of the Democrats’ possible weakening resolve to uniformly oppose all Trump judicial picks, three of the nominees received some Democratic votes in support. The

This is really, really important. Getting sane, sensible judges in place who are committed to the rule of law and the Constitution instead of leftist activists who are seeking to change the country by their anticonstitutional rulings is critical to saving the country.

Trump is already at a record level and this will push it even higher.

Just fantastic and definitely MAGA.

Now to find some way of getting rid of the terrible, fanatic liberal "judges" who have stymied some of Trump´s most important EOs. Thank goodness for this new influx of real judges. They will go far in helping to save our country from implosion.

This is the long game as others have suggested, and it highlights the absolute importance of turning out and voting for every GOP Senate candidate in November, no matter how mediocre or disappointing he or she may be in other areas. When it comes to judicial nominees the vote of Senator RINO counts as much as that of Senator Conservative.

This alone should be a major reason to vote Republican in November.

You may not like this, or that, particular issue, but you only get judges installed by having the Majority.

I´d like to see the federal judiciary done away with completely, it´s a huge menace to our freedoms, un-elected, un-accountable, un-American - but until that happens, stacking it with non-liberals will have to do.

Dishonesty About Kelly Sadler
American Greatness, by Chris Buskirk    Original Article

White House aide Kelly Sadler is the object of this week’s outrage mob. The cycle is well-known: Dig through someone’s past or present comments whether public or private, find something that someone, somewhere finds offensive or can spin as offensive, and then whip up a media frenzy demanding a public shaming, which usually includes public shunning and the loss of a job. It makes the freedom of expression necessary for government based upon “reflection and choice” impossible to say nothing of the corrosive effects of trust and civility. The phenomena puts me in mind of Robespierre’s infamous defense of revolutionary

When I was young and brash and full of dreams for the future (and in the process of making them come true), had anyone told me I would embrace motherhood joyfully, I would have scoffed. Could someone have enumerated the various episodes of vomit, crying, screaming, temper tantrums, refusals, Legos on the floor, suspect dried items of unknown origin stuck to the wall, load upon load of laundry, fatigue, and the acquisition of enough marks on my body that it resembles a world map, I would have turned up my nose and stormed away.

Fact Check: Has Another Doctor

No. It´s a cruel conspiracy that shamelessly, and repeatedly, uses the death of an actual person. Two “reports” recently surfaced on Facebook claiming that a doctor “who exposed Clinton Foundation corruption” had died under mysterious circumstances. The blog post, published Friday on Republic Information and Miami Post, is a republishing of the 2017 conspiracy theory debunked by multiple outlets. It maintains that Dr. Dean Lorich had revealed corruption by the Clintons in Haiti and ultimately “paid with his life to expose this evil.”((Snip)Lorich was involved in U.S. aid to Haiti after the devastating earthquake in 2010 and co-wrote a scathing criticism

A top aide to Islamic State chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is among five senior members of the jihadi group captured in a sting operation by Iraqi authorities backed by the U.S. and Turkey. “The noose is tightening around” ISIS leader Baghdadi, Iraqi security adviser Hisham al-Hashimi told Reuters on Thursday, a day after Iraqi authorities announced the arrests. Alluding to Baghdadi’s captured aide, Hashimi indicated to the Washington Post: “One of the men, Ismail al-Ithawi, who goes by the alias Abu Zaid al-Iraqi, is considered part of Baghdadi’s inner circle and has responsibilities for financial, religious and security portfolios

The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) has suffered devastating losses in Iraq and Syria under U.S. President Donald Trump that have decimated the group’s territorial caliphate, ultimately squeezing the jihadists into ever-shrinking pockets of land in Syria. U.S. Maj. Adrian Rankine-Galloway, Pentagon spokesman, told Breitbart News that ISIS has been reduced to a “small” presence in Syria, noting: The United States and our partners remain committed to eliminating the small ISIS presence in Syria that our forces have not already eradicated. We look forward to working with our partner forces in Syria to achieve the lasting defeat of the

Mercedes Schlapp, the White House strategic communications director, stood by aide Kelly Sadler after she made a controversial joke about Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who is battling brain cancer. Schlapp, a potential candidate for communications director, said during a closed-door meeting Friday that she supports Sadler, according to a report from Axios. “You can put this on the record ... I stand with Kelly Sadler," she reportedly said. Schlapp was trying to get across the point that when a staff member is targeted by a leak from other members of the staff, then the communications team should support the staffer subjected to

A slim margin of 37 votes decided the election of Euless´ first Muslim councilmember this past Saturday.

"I am proud to have participated in a race that saw the highest voter turnout in a Euless city election in twenty-five years," wrote Bhojani on his campaign site.

RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina´s highest court says there´s no legal presumption young people convicted of first-degree murder should receive life in prison without parole. A state Supreme Court majority ruled Friday in the case of a Mecklenburg County defendant sentenced for a 2006 murder committed at age 16. Life without parole was then automatic, but the U.S. Supreme Court later declared such mandatory sentences for juveniles cruel and unusual punishment. At resentencing, a judge still gave Harry Sharod James life without parole. James´ attorneys appealed. Friday´s majority opinion said updated laws provide "alternative sentencing options" of life with or without parole in

The devolution of the Never Trump publication National Review took another move to the left with the publication of a column calling for conservatives to surrender on the issue of transgenderism. Columnist J.J. McCullough is not only calling for conservatives to cave to a ruinous lie, he is smearing conservatives as nasty bigots. “[I]t feels we’re still in the immature, demagogic phase. In some quarters, it remains fashionable to act theatrically repulsed by transgender people emphasize their weirdness, and make populist appeals to the preposterousness of women asking to be called ‘him’ or surgeons amputating penises and so forth,” he writes.

Conservative syndicated columnist George Will wrote this week that Vice President Mike Pence has “become America’s most repulsive public figure.” Why does Will think Pence deserves this absurd slur? Apparently, the columnist has found the vice president guilty of the heinous crime of being a decent man. Will announced in 2016 that he was leaving the Republican Party over the nomination of Donald Trump as the GOP’s presidential candidate. So it is no surprise that Will has become part of the so-called “resistance” to the duly elected president of the United States. He’s even become a contributor to NBC and its

Shortly after President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal last Tuesday, an adviser to a top Iranian official retaliated by dropping a bombshell threat. The threat concerned the president’s plan to reimpose sanctions on Iran: An adviser to H.J.Ansari Zarif, the deputy for parliamentary and Iranian affairs within Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, specifically threatened to expose every corrupt official who accepted bribes to make the Iran deal happen three years ago. “If Europeans stop trading with Iran and don’t put pressure on US then we will reveal which western politicians and how much money they

Graham, who has traveled the globe with McCain and is one of his closest friends in the Senate, spoke after the White House refused to apologize for the crude remark and press secretary Sarah Sanders fumed about leaks rather than condemning the remark.

As death flutters around the back-yard deck of Senator John McCain, it’s sad to read reports that the scrappy Sandcutter regrets picking Governor Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate and wishes he had instead picked Senator Jos. Lieberman. The only person diminished by this kind of talk is Senator McCain himself, and the heroic Arizonan deserves better.Not that we lack for love of Mr. Lieberman. The Sun was the first newspaper to sketch the rationale for Mr. McCain to bring in Mr. Lieberman as his running mate. That was in an enthusiastic editorial called “The Logic of Lieberman.”

A Nigerian passenger has filed a civil rights lawsuit alleging that United Airlines personnel ejected her and her children from an international flight departing from Houston in 2016 because of her “pungent” odor. The woman says in a federal discrimination suit filed in Houston Friday that she and her minor children were boarding a San Francisco bound plane — the second leg of a three-flight journey from Nigeria to Canada — when an incident occurred involving a white male passenger that escalated to her being asked by United staff to exit the plane.

A profane tirade during a parent-teacher conference this week at a Dallas elementary school led to a teacher being injured and a woman facing assault charges. The alleged attack happened Tuesday at John Neely Bryan Elementary School in east Oak Cliff. A teacher reported that a woman accused her of "pinching her nephew" and assaulted her during an 11 a.m. parent-teacher conference, according to the arrest warrant. Lakietha Lashell Lawrence, 27, was arrested by Dallas school district police officers on charges of assaulting a public servant. She was taken to the Dallas County Jail.

Washington - Among recent pilgrims to the Arizona ranch of Senator John McCain was Joe Biden. The Republican, who has an aggressive form of brain cancer, urged the former vice-president to “not walk away” from politics, Biden told the New York Times. It did not take much imagination to see this as a metaphorical shove – into the next race for the White House. Biden has the desire, the pedigree – and the rage. On Friday, incensed by reports that a White House aide had dismissed McCain with the terse comment “he’s dying anyway”, the 75-year-old Democrat let rip, declaring

After months of swaggering hesitation, President Trump finally announced the United States’ withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran, to which Britain, France, Russia, China, Germany and the European Union are also parties. This action tramples on European leaders, who urged Mr. Trump to exercise restraint in the interest of international security and multilateralism. Federica Mogherini, the European Union’s high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, reacted to Mr. Trump’s announcement with a sharp statement. The European Union and the rest of the international community, she said, would “preserve this nuclear deal.” The question is how. Notwithstanding an abundance of

From its start, the Trump administration has been plagued by charges of “chaos.” From the revolving door of senior staffers — including two secretaries of state, three national security advisers and two chiefs of staff — to the president’s brash and sometimes boorish personal style, to his politically incorrect taunt-tweeting, Donald Trump has refused to conform to his political opponents’ conventional notions of what constitutes an effective White House operation. And yet, the economy is humming, hosts of regulations have been rolled back, the unemployment rate is down, job openings are soaring, taxes have been cut and black
