Yesterday (6/12), the Ninth Circuit, on the basis of a Trump tweet, blocked the President’s travel ban.
When President Trump tweeted that his measure to protect Americans from Islamic terror was a “travel ban” and that it should never have been watered down, he was right.
Maybe the Supreme Court will uphold the Constitution. Maybe it won’t. The track record has been decidedly mixed. And this is an area where the courts had no actual right to intervene.
Immigration is in the hands of Congress and the White House. It is not up to judges to decide who can come to America. If this judicial coup succeeds, elected officials will lose their authority over immigration. That means that the American people will lose all control over immigration.
Federal courts have been unconstitutionally treating states like this for far too long, intervening in everything from elections to prison populations, but now they’re using the general anti-Trump hysteria to assert judicial supremacy over the elected branches of government.
If this judicial coup is allowed to stand, anything that any White House official or member of Congress says at any time in the past, can and will be used by Federal courts to seize control over any policy. And then we will be living under a permanent reign of judicial terror.
Operation Overlord, the most successful amphibious invasion in history, was in no small part successful due to the most effective deception and disinformation campaign in history.
The key to the Allies completely fooling the Germans as to the real location of the invasion (Normandy) as opposed to where Adolf Hitler thought the troops would land (Calais)—thus meaning all the German generals who wanted their jobs had to think that as well—was the Allies knew what Hitler believed and just played to his preconceptions.
Flash forward from June 1944 to February 2017. The Trump team had known for months that, far from getting even a reasonably fair shake from the Fake News Media (and even conservative media), they would face the most blistering, unrelenting, baseless and usually cowardly attacks of any Presidential administration since Abraham Lincoln’s.
Team Trump also understood that they needed a window of a few months to lay the groundwork for all of this, to get the necessary people in place, and to begin drafting all the paperwork necessary.
So they came up with the “Cheese in the Maze” deception program.
Most people were appalled when they learned the extent of monitoring of telephone and electronic communications by the various intelligence agencies.
But what is even more shocking is the extent to which various government organizations monitor and, in many cases, restrict financial freedom, and seize assets without criminal conviction.
The government argues that it must collect financial data and then share it with many domestic and foreign government organizations in order to stop tax evasion, money laundering, drug dealing, other assorted criminality, and terrorist finance — all of which sounds good at first glance, until one looks at what really happens.
If you think that the war on drugs has been a failure, look at the war on money laundering, tax evasion and terrorist finance for an even bigger failure.
America Alone. Mark Steyn wrote that book ten years ago, and it all came tragically true yesterday – June 8, 2017. That is the day the British people decided they no longer want to exist, the day Great Britain sank beneath the waves.
As you know, England suffered two horrific Moslem terrorist attacks last week – in Manchester on Monday May 29, and in London on Saturday June 3. You’d think this would cause a collapse of support for the main opposition party to the Conservatives, the hyper-left Labor Party led by a Marxist pro-Moslem madman named Jeremy Corbyn.
But no, it caused a surge of support for Corbyn – especially among Millennial young voters – with Labor gaining 31 seats (now at 261 total). This is madness, flat-out civilizational surrender to the forces of hate, Communist hate for Capitalism, Moslem hate for Christians. The sun has set on Great Britain.
Could the sun rise and shine again on America’s “Mother Country”? With Donald Trump’s help, yes.
About the Fake News Hysteria Farce of the Week. All week long, CNN, along with the rest of the FNM, went into full meltdown hype over the Senate testimony of Thank-God-Former FBI Director James Comey. It ended bigly bad for Jimmy Snowflake.
There is a lot more in this week’s HFR.
Like the insult “Racist,” the Left has divested these insults of meaning, as are schoolyards taunts, “You stink!” or yelling “Boo!” and hissing at a referee’s bad call at a football game.
To call someone a Nazi for real is serious business. It’s accusing them of wanting to commit racial slaughter of fellow human beings on a massive scale. It’s accusing them of advocating a politics of criminal insanity, of being irretrievably evil and criminally insane themselves.
Yet that is what the Left in America is becoming before our eyes in broad daylight. You want to know how Germans, one of the most intelligent, accomplished, and cultured people on the planet became Nazis in the 1930s – look at what is happening to the Left, to the Democrat Party, to the Fake News Media right now.
The circumstances and proximate causes are different. History does not repeat itself. Here is what is happening now.
Something wonderful I never thought I’d live long enough to see is happening: For most Sunni Muslims, the Dar al Harb is no more.
The Koran divides the world between the Dar al Islam (zone of peace), and the Dar al Harb (zone of war). War is to continue until all submit to Allah.
Since May 21st, however, peoples of other faiths no longer are to be regarded as “infidels” to be killed, conquered, or treated as second-class citizens (dhimmis), the leaders of nearly all Sunni majority countries declared during President Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia.
What you are about to read will astound you. For example -- watch this – it will blow you away. It certainly blew away the terrorist:
“2,000 plus cases.”
That was the most overlooked revelation to come from the May 3 Senate testimony of the then-FBI director. While the media parsed every Comey hiccup to bolster its election conspiracy theories, it ignored that number.
Comey stated that there were around 2,000 terrorism investigations. 1,000 of those came from “home grown violent extremism” with no evidence of contact with foreign terrorists. Another 1,000 had "some contact with foreign terrorists." 300 from that 2,000 had come to America as refugees.
Two-thirds of the refugee terrorists were from Iraq. The other third were mainly from the six countries named in President Trump’s travel pause which left-wing activist judges have unconstitutionally halted.
10,000 British soldiers are now deployed on British city streets after Manchester and the London Bridge. A Muslim terrorist network in London, Paris or New York is as much of a military issue as one in Baghdad or Beirut.
Which means: Every effort to oppose President Trump’s travel pause is a vote for soldiers in the streets and car bombs every morning.
I need to tell you a secret. What TTP dubbed my “Liberal Head Exploding Cartoon of the Week” (HFR 05/10/17) was created as a cognitive dissonance trap.
I wanted to see if I could make an argument about the reliability of economic models and dupe irrational people into labeling me a climate denier.
My hypothesis was that I could make a public argument about the reliability of economic models, and partisans on the climate debate would not be able to see the word economic on the page. Literally.
Sure enough, my experiment worked like a charm. Here’s how.
Are you willing to double your electrical bill now — to European rates — to reduce global temperatures by two-tenths of 1 degree 100 years from now?
Are you aware that England has only been an island for about 9,000 years or so? Up until the end of the last ice age, our ancestors could walk from France — which they can, in theory, again do, thanks to the Chunnel. Back then, the English Channel was a river, with the Thames in England, the Seine in France, and the Rhine in Germany its tributaries.
A hundred years ago, air conditioning was almost non-existent. Now we have huge, rich cities such as Singapore, Panama City and even Miami, thriving in the tropics, because air conditioning has made them very livable all year around.
A hundred years ago, antibiotics had not been invented, nor had the semiconductor, let alone the smartphone and iPad.
At the present, we do not know how to cost-effectively reduce many carbon-dioxide emissions, but we do know how to adapt to slowly rising sea levels and slightly warmer temperatures. Sea levels have been rising since the end of the last ice age, with no evidence that this rate of rise has increased during the past half-century — and mankind has adapted just fine.
Despite rising sea levels, the island of Manhattan has grown in size over the last four centuries — because it makes economic sense to create landfills.
It is odd that many in the media and “public intellectuals” call people “climate deniers” who merely want to have a civil discussion about the rate of climate change and how much is caused by man — while, at the same time, being in deep denial about the real costs, particularly to the poor, of many of their proposed solutions.
