I'm getting really tired of people with brown faces working against the President when THERE IS NO CRIME HERE. First Justin Amash screaming for impeachment now this Indian joker. Elijah Cummings has always been a waste of Oxygen. All of you, go home.

FTA: "I wonder how many Democrats have thought through the precedents being established here?" DimoKKKraps don't need to think! If a similar ruling were issued against a dim, they would just throw a tantrum- duly "seriously" reported in the driveby media- so that there's one ruling for a Republican and the opposite for a dimoKKKrap. Ad hoc justice for all! The Kangaroo Kourt don't issue no stays for no Republicans! When the dims were operating the KKK, did they grant any stays to black people? Did they worry about precedent (fairness)? No, they did what they wanted and took what they wanted and fought about the results of their actions when they got to that bridge.

The Senate should immediately subpoena allthe judges tax returns for the last 10 years and any family memebers' returns as well. The Senate has oversight responsibilities over both the Executive and Judical branch. Time to start using it.

President Trump is the constitutionality elected President of the USA. This judge, essentially appointed by the former President of the opposing political party that lost the presidential election is a person of foreign origin and as such is constitutionally ineligible to ever be elected President of the USA. There certainly appears to be a defect in the USA Constitution if such a person has the power to tell the duly elected President what he must do?

The executive isn't at the beck and call of the judiciary. Appeal. Shame the pubbies in congress don't have President Trump's back. But we're taking names and watching who says and does what. They seem to think we won't remember. That's the only explanation for their behavior.

Consider this: The appeals court doesn't rule within the seven day period...and Trump still says "No" to the demand... Cummings then screams, with the usual Democrat Impeachment Choir, and here we go again with an "impeachable" act. The media has another toy to play with. This stuff is no accident.

Actually, there are no precedents being established here. This judge is just a District Court (trial) judge. He can deny the stay but the Appellate Court can grant it (and probably will). So can the Supreme Court (if they don't). I seriously doubt that Congress has investigative powers that exceed those of federal prosecutors. Presidents still have rights of due process. This obviously biased judge will not have the last word on this.

The fact that his order is self-executing is meaningless if the papers are not turned over. Once the appeal is filed, the judge will lose jurisdiction to enforce it.

In a perfect world, all of Obama's judges would be impeached immediately. They have been basing rulings from the bench not on law, but on their own feelings and ridiculous political rhetoric. Judges who refuse to rule by the LAW should not only be impeached but disbarred immediately. If we had America First congress people, they would also enact laws that said no first or second generation foreign immigrants should be allowed to hold a Federal position. We are being assaulted daily as a nation by racist foreigners thanks to MN, Michigan and Obama.

From the article: The remedy for potential political bias in a federal judge's ruling consists of the appeals process, with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and ultimately the Supreme Court able to reverse such a decision. But Judge Mehta's order forbids this. ... A stay of a ruling with irreversible consequences is standard operating procedure. The deep state coup plotters are obviously still at work.

It's time to unseal all of Obamas records and his real birth certificate, not the fake Hawaii thing. When we establish that he was not eligible to be the President of the United States, all his appointed judges would be nullified, as well as all of his executive orders. And this judge made digging into Obamas records legal.

@#22: That will have to wait for a GOP majority in the House and supermajority in the Senate. The House impeaches by majority vote. The Senate then tries the case and needs a 2/3 vote to convict.

Why did Trump hold a rally in
this small Pennsylvania town?

Posted by Magnante 5/22/2019 5:46:14 AM Post Reply
If there was a reason President Donald Trump chose the small Pennsylvania town of Montoursville to hold a campaign rally, no one in the media is saying what it is. In the absence of any answers, let me suggest one, admittedly more speculative than proven but a possibility nonetheless. In 1996, during the midst of Bill Clinton's desperate drive to become president, 16 French club members from the Montoursville high school and five of their chaperones died in the crash of TWA Flight 800 off the coast of Long Island. Although the phrase has been much abused, there is none better than "cover-up" to describe what followed.

My hometown of Minneapolis has been totally transformed by the arrival of tens of thousands of refugees from Somalis, one of whom now represents the city and a few suburbs in Congress. Nobody there was asked if such a makeover was desired by the residents; State Department officials decided that the generous welfare benefits available in Minnesota were reason enough to send people whose native land was tropical to the coldest major city in the United States. But now that the old 97%+ Caucasian city has been made into a multicultural exemplar, the local establishment, including the newspapers and broadcasters, is ultra-protective of its prized diversity-endowing Somali community.

One hand clapping. That's the sound after the Mueller report's release. Why? Because one of the questions we would have hoped to see answered in the report is, what, exactly, was the charge against President Trump; what, exactly, is he supposed to have done? It is astonishing that the word used for his alleged activity has been, from start to finish, "collusion." "Collusion" is a characterization of a charge, not a description of one. (snip) Mueller cleared President Trump of all charges, but that still leaves his report a disappointment because we still don't know what charges it is that Trump was cleared of!

The attempted entrapment of George Papadopoulos by the FBI and possibly the CIA, apparently as an excuse to trigger surveillance of the Trump presidential campaign, may turn into the "smoking gun" that exposes the depth of corruption of the Deep State Russia Hoax. Trey Gowdy, the retired congressman from South Carolina, was, until 2018, chairman of the House Oversight and Investigations Committee, who was able to view classified information uncovered by the GOP congressional investigations when the party enjoyed a majority in the House of Representatives.

(snip) Over time, however, I became fascinated and increasingly impressed with Trump’s successful campaign despite his blatantly unorthodox political tactics and narcissism. I reminded myself that narcissism is not necessarily a psychiatric curse word. The psychoanalytic term for the complex area of self-love and dignity is narcissism, or the narcissistic sector of our personality. It is important to note that narcissism is not necessarily a synonym for selfishness or self-absorption.

It's always so good to hear from Nikki Haley! The former ace United Nations ambassador went after Rep.

It’s apparent to all but President Trump’s most deranged critics that Obama’s FBI was indeed spying on his campaign. So, it’s worth pointing out that, in addition to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane operation, the Obama administration was running another concurrent higher-level counterintelligence investigation into alleged Russian efforts to aid Trump’s campaign that hasn’t gotten nearly as much attention. Details of the second investigation were leaked by high-level Obama administration officials for a June 2017 Washington Post story headlined, “Obama’s secret struggle to punish Russia for Putin’s election assault”.

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established.

Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion. The Roper/Fortune survey is one of the oldest trend questions measuring attitudes on socialism in the U.S. Gallup's update of the question in an April 17-30 survey finds
