Charging that so-called "sanctuary" cities that protect illegal immigrants are jeopardizing domestic security, Attorney General Bill Barr announced a slew of additional sanctions that he called a "significant escalation" against left-wing local and state governments that obstruct the "lawful functioning of our nation's immigration system." Speaking at the National Sheriff’s Association 2020 Winter Legislative and Technology Conference in Washington, D.C., Barr said the Justice Department would immediately file multiple lawsuits against sanctuary jurisdictions for unconstitutionally interfering with federal immigration enforcement, and implement unprecedented national reviews of left-wing sanctuary governments and prosecutors.

Comments:

This is great news. Seeking injunctions against various political entities and possibly going for criminal charges against some prosecutors who file lower charges against illegal aliens than against Americans for identical crimes. Nail them to the wall. Hit them HARD.

How about getting a majority in the house and senate with Donald Trump in the White House next year? Then, pass a law that makes it a felony to obstruct or fail to cooperate with federal immigration law. Put a few of these mayors and city council people in prison for a year might be the only solution to this problem.

There are a lot of countries in the global community where the Rule of Law means nothing. The Rule of Law is what gives us the right to pledge allegiance to God and country where there is "liberty and justice for all", but we're all aware that that concept has become a big joke and it worries and frightens us. Hopefully, with the President's lead, we can get back to being a country where the Rule of Law is respected and obeyed. What countries that are full of chaos thrive? None of them.

So a 'whistleblower' will call Schiff's staff and claim he heard from someone deep inside the White House but not acually on the call but heard forom some one that heard the conversation through a wall that Trump colluded with Barr to break the Santuary City prepossed but Nadless to protect cities from Federal law lack of enforcement and thus the new impeachment begins.

Trust now that the impeachment scam is finished, the gloves are off, finally. Trust the DOJ is large enough to do this and continue work on the FISA, and other abuses from the previous administration.

I don't understand. The federal government makes immigration policy--that's settled law. Why hasn't the Supreme Court taken up this issue? Willfully violating federal law (which is supreme) should be met with prosecutions.

Awesome! Unfortunately, I live in one of the so-called sanctuary states (Vermont) and this stupid states gets more liberal every day. I would love to leave but can't go anywhere until my mother-in-law is no longer living, as my brother-in-law can't be trusted to provide care for her if necessary. While I am not wishing anything on her, I can't wait until we can move. The sooner, the better.

D'ya think Barr will get off his ass and do something about the criminals who work for him? I don't believe he will, I believe his entire focus is protecting the DOJ, even the criminal behavior involved with Mueller, the continued persecution of General Flynn, and carter Page. Further, the continuing criminality of the FBI under Wray needs scrutiny. Why is the traitor Comey still on the street?

Climate Science does about-face,

Posted by DVC 2/11/2020 5:00:48 PM Post Reply
A comment published last week in Nature, a leading scientific journal, has thrown a monkey wrench into hundreds of studies and media stories that previously predicted dire climate consequences in the future due to increased carbon dioxide (CO2) in our atmosphere. The consequences were predicted by a computer model called Representative Carbon Pathways (RCP), and the worst-case scenario model, RCP8.5, had been cited more than 2,500 times in scientific journals and in hundreds of media stories as the primary need for "urgent action" on climate. Predictions from the RCP8.5 model suggested maximum global temperature increases of nearly 6°C (10.8°F) by the year 2100, shown in Figure 1.

A day after a team of World Health Organization (WHO) medical experts arrived in China to help investigate the deadly coronavirus outbreak, the health agency’s director said the virus poses “a very grave threat for the rest of the world.” Over 1,000 people in China have died after contracting the virus, which has sickened over 43,000 others globally. Just under 400 of those cases have been confirmed in countries outside of China. “With 99 percent of cases in China, this remains very much an emergency for that country, but one that holds a very grave threat for the rest of the world,” WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said

Minutes after Chief Justice John Roberts gaveled out President Trump's impeachment trial, which had consumed the Senate for almost three weeks, Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., got right back to what he's said is his top priority -- confirming judges. Less than half-an-hour after TV networks cut away from the Senate to dive into the ramifications of the body acquitting Trump, McConnell filed cloture on the nomination of Judge Andrew Brasher to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, a procedural step that moved the controversial nominee one step closer to confirmation. The body took the next step to confirming Brasher Monday by approving the motion with a 46-41 vote,

The first of 2020's official presidential preference polls to be conducted by adults happens here in New Hampshire (N.H.) on Tuesday. This short essay describes two micro-polls conducted Thursday. I live in southeastern N.H., the Exeter area, which is fairly blue like the adjacent state of Taxachusetts. Thursday was errand day: a stop at a local business and then groceries at a local supermarket. As I drove, I counted yard signs. One each for Bernie, Joe, Tulsi, and Trump. No Amy, no Yang. Two for Warren. And seven for Mayor Pete, the kid from Indiana who shows a modicum of sense.

China's Communist Party has infiltrated various levels of America's infrastructure and is working to destroy the values of the United States, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a speech Saturday, while also warning state governors to be wary of China's infiltration. “We can’t ignore China’s actions and strategic intentions," he said while addressing the National Governors Association winter meeting. "The Chinese government has been methodical in the way it's analyzed our system... it's assessed our vulnerabilities and it's decided to exploit our freedoms, to gain an advantage over us at the federal level, the state level and the local level."

James Carville, a former top adviser to President Clinton, laid out a scathing critique of his party, arguing that it drifted way too far to the left and was on the way to failure as a result of pushing extreme policy ideas. "We just had an election in 2018. We did great. We talked about everything we needed to talk about and we won," he said in a Vox interview published on Friday. "And now it’s like we’re losing our damn minds. Someone’s got to step their game up here." Carville added that he considered himself a "liberal" rather than a centrist -- but Democrats went too far even for him.

The theory for those pushing the green new deal or some other radical energy policy that will destroy tens of millions of jobs and greatly harm the poor and middle class is that humans, CO2, and fossil fuels cause warming and climate change. This warming causes the ice to melt in Alaska, then the melting ice causes sea levels to rise and the rising sea levels will cause coastal cities to under water. They have predicted the coastal cities to disappear for the last 100 years and they have been wrong for 100 years.

Every year 3 million visitors make the pilgrimage to Ellis Island. It is estimated nearly forty percent of all Americans can trace their ancestors to the 20 million immigrants that were processed through New York and Ellis Island from 1892 to 1954. These prospective citizens were determined to escape authoritarianism, soul grinding poverty, war and its aftermath, immutable class structures as well as religious and ethnic persecution. Once here they would immerse themselves in learning English and the nation’s founding documents in preparation for the most gut wrenching (passing the oral citizenship test) and emotional (the swearing in ceremony) day in their lives.

Many were loaners from other agencies and have been sent back. Others left government work.

The Oscars 2020 proved the cement shoes for Netflix’s “The Irishman.” The downturn began on Jan. 6, when viewers tuned into the 2020 Golden Globe Awards expecting to hear a few familiar names: Marty, Pesci or perhaps Pacino. The Hollywood icons were seated at a table smack-dab down front, stage right, so it would be easy for the living legends to take the stage at the Beverly Hilton Hotel quickly when they inevitably won. But those seats would only become warmer and warmer as the night went on, because instead we heard different people called up: Sam Mendes, Brad Pitt and, most improbably, “1917.”

Two of the key witnesses in the Trump impeachment have been removed from their positions. Gordon Sondland is out as Ambassador to the European Union. Lt. Col Alexander Vindman has been reassigned from the National Security Council to the Pentagon. Democrats are crying foul, of course. But was it improper for Trump to take these personnel actions? Sondland’s case seems easy to me. Ambassadors serve at the pleasure of the President. Trump lost confidence in Sondland. Thus, his removal made sense. Vindman’s case is somewhat different and less easy for me. Unlike Sondland, he’s a career government employee and military man.
