Damage to Our Nation From
The “Resistance”…

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 11/16/2019 3:10:48 AM

A rather lengthy speech by U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr to the Federalist Society is getting some increased attention today for the specific focus on how the executive branch has been weakened over the past several decades. More specifically, AG Barr discusses how, in the Trump-era, the resistance movement has abdicated their legislative power and responsibility in favor of a politically motivated intent to harm the constitutional executive power. (Video) [Transcript] – Good Evening. Thank you all for being here. And thank you to Gene [Meyer] for your kind introduction. It is an honor to be here this evening delivering the 19th Annual Barbara K. Olson Memorial Lecture.

The key word is "harassment" of this president. We have become a nation of whiners who think laws are changed by protesting and stomping their feet.

This is a riveting and hugely important speech. It has many great points, and one of them is the specific ways in which the encroachment of the judicial branch and legislative branch on executive powers has hamstrung President Trump (as well as previous Republican presidents to a lesser extent) in carrying out his agenda. He provides many relevant examples, which makes the speech more interesting than a dry recitation of constitutional principles would have done. For example, allowing local (handpicked) local judges to overrule executive orders is something that was very rarely done in the past, but now the left finds Obama-appointed judges to hamper Trump at every turn. My respect for Barr has increased. I hope he and Trump are in deep discussions about what can be done. This should be a must read.

Mr Barr needs to learn to edit and reduce his ponderings if he wants people to listen, or read what he has to say. This is ridiculous in the amount of words to say simple things, easily condensed by pages. I appreciate the message, but if he wants to be effective, spend some time getting to the point.

Yes, this is long. But it is intricately, logically, and beautifully worded. A solid and valid case is made that the legislature and especially the courts are out of bounds in their recent actions. I have often wondered how ONE district judge can enact a national ban on presidential action. As per Barr, it is questionable whether even the SCOTUS actually has that power. Unless law is broken, the President IS the executive and neither Congress or the courts have Constitutional power to deny him. Our Country was designed that way. This also gives us a clear look into Barr's thinking. I suspect that while he dislikes what BO's administration did against Trump, he will defer to the President (BO) unless laws were broken; to a point. If BO were acting against a foreign power, Barr would grant him virtually unlimited authority. But against a US citizen in an internal election, the President's (BO) and the government's power is curtailed. I suspect that thinking will shape the actions coming from the internal investigations. I might wonder if the FBI should even HAVE a counter terrorism division, the instrument of so much of the mischief that has gone on. Brennen may have been the architect but the FBI was the tool he used.

This was a speech, not meant to be a sound bite or a brief article. The magnitude of what has been going on since before Trump was even sworn in is hard to imagine. Maybe someday, should we survive as a free people, long books will be written to chronicle the evil, seditious behavior of the Democrat party, the so-called free press, and the frighteningly corrupt permanent Deep State. It will require a long attention span for everybody to absorb all of this horror. President Trump needs our full support in even beginning to clean this filth out of our country.

If you remember The Wizard of Oz you will recall that Toto, Dorothy’s dog, pulled back the curtain, revealing that the wizard was just a little guy working a panel of sound and light gimmicks to fool people into thinking he was more omnipotent than he really was. In the same way, the President’s killing of Qassem Soleimani and the aftermath reveals the four-decades-long treatment of Iranian terrorism and Israel by the foreign-policy establishment -- our presidents from Jimmy Carter up to now -- and Congress was based on myths.The brilliant Caroline Glick makes the case. For the past 40-odd years, two narratives have guided American Middle East policy.

CNN has agreed to shell out $76 million in a back pay case that involved union employees, making it the largest monetary settlement in the history of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Variety reported that the labor dispute began in 2003 when the media company fired a group of unionized subcontractors working as technicians and in other support roles for Team Video Services before hiring non-union employees to replace those workers. The action sparked a litigation war between the National Association of Broadcast Employees and Technicians and Communications Workers of America that has lasted more than a decade.More than 300 people will take part in the settlement.

Texas will no longer accept the resettlement of new refugees, becoming the first state known to do so under a recent Trump administration order, Gov.

Texas has large refugee populations in several of its cities and has long been a leader in settling refugees, taking in more than any other state during the 2018 governmental fiscal year, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.Since the 2002 fiscal year, Texas has resettled an estimated 88,300 refugees, second only to California, according to the Pew Research Center.

In January 2014, the then-president of France, François Hollande, arrived in England for talks with Prime Minister David Cameron on military and nuclear cooperation. No one in the British press really cared about the official reason for the visit, though. At the time, Hollande was living at the Élysée Palace with his girlfriend, but he had just been revealed to have been having an affair with a French actress—he had been darting to her apartment on the back of a scooter, protected by his official security team and his face hidden from view by a motorbike helmet. He had flown into England as the storm still swirled back home.

For most of the twenty-first century, the world’s oldest surviving democracy has been led by a chief executive who received fewer votes than his opponent in an election for the position. The first of these executives started a war based on false pretenses that killed hundreds of thousands of civilians. The second — a serial abuser of women who hired as his campaign manager a lobbyist for violent dictatorships - authorized an immigration policy that forcibly separated migrant children from their families and indefinitely detained them in facilities described as “concentration camps.” Democracy, as they say, is messy.

What an explosive week this has been in the aftermath of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s bombshell announcement that they wish to ‘step back’ as senior royals. I share much of the anger, frustration and sorrow of the British public at their decision, which has been much-discussed over the past few days.  But there is one aspect of this drama that concerns and saddens me: the behaviour of Prince Harry, and what appears to be him turning his back on the Royal Family.  This is so out of character, and — as his biographer who knows him better than many — I fear something is seriously amiss.
