Obama Sent Illegals All Across The County, Forcing States to Pay for Schooling

President Obama secretly sent tens of thousands of illegals all across the country and into every state without bothering to inform governors that he was doing it and now the states are stuck footing the bill for healthcare and education.

On September 29, the AP reported that “Unaccompanied minors… have moved to communities of all sizes, in nearly every state.”

Tulsa Police Capt. Suspended for Refusing to Attended Ordered Muslims Mosque Services

A Tulsa police officer who was suspended and punished for refusing to attend Muslim religious services at a local mosque that has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood is suing his employer for ordering him to attend over his religious objections.

Even worse, the mosque the officer was order to attend is connected to an Imam who is an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and has been recorded proudly making numerous anti-American statements over the years.

In yet another example of the self-immolation marking the end of western culture, Captain Paul Fields of the Tulsa, Oklahoma police force was suspended and later punished further for refusing to attend the mosque as well as refusing to order any of the officers under him to do so against their religious beliefs.

Of course, we all know that if the Tulsa police had tried to force its officers to attend Christian indoctrination services, the media and the militant atheists who pretend to be against religion–but who are really only against Christianity–would have been all over this case. But because the department was forcing Islam down the throats of its officers, all those nice, liberal groups are silent as a graveyard.

Calif. Court Makes Wearing American Flag to School a Crime

Witness the end of the USA: An appeals court in California has now let stand a lower court’s ruling that white kids aren’t allowed to wear t-shirts with the American flag on them to school when illegals are celebrating the faux Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo.

That’s right, natural born American citizens are now considered criminals by the US court system should they dare to wear Old Glory on a t-shirt when law breakers are celebrating a holiday that isn’t even a holiday in the backwards country of their birth.

Lawbreakers, criminals from other countries, people who are here to steal our benefits, our jobs, and our property are given more rights than natural born citizens.

Illinois Website Beats Attempt to Silence its News Coverage

In 2011 a political operative attempted to sue the Illinois news website Illinois Review for “defamation” over one of its stories. This week a federal appeals court issued its final ruling dismissing the lawsuit handing the website a long hoped for victory for free speech.

The Thomas Moore Society was pleased to report that IR emerged the victor in this illicit attempt to silence them saying that Satkar Hospitality Inc. lost its appeal before the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. (See decision here)

“We’re very pleased that this blatant attempt to silence aggressive political reporting has been finally rejected by the courts,” Peter Breen, Thomas More Society vice president and senior counsel said in a statement. “Illinois Review has a First Amendment right to speak out on controversial issues, and frivolous lawsuits should not be permitted to shut down their free speech.”

We Should Not Call Them The ‘Ruling Class,’ But the ‘Immunes’

-by Warner Todd Huston

In the bad old days when Kings reigned and the various classes of royalty vied for position the only danger for the “ruling class” was the fear that another member of their class might strike a blow against them. Unlike the lower classes, the rulers of antiquity were immune from the vagaries of life and out of reach of the law. In fact, there was no law. Unfortunately, we are headed right back in that scheme of life.

But one of the societal schemes that the founders of our country set about the task of destroying was that of the divine right of kings, the idea that royalty is subject to no earthly authority.

The founders wanted to create a society that allowed for social mobility among all citizens. They wanted a meritocracy where people could get ahead from the result of their own work and abilities. Above all they wanted a stable rule of law so that such stability could fuel growth.

For nearly 200 years their model worked admirably. But thanks to the drive toward communism starting at the end of the 1800s it appears that the founders’ societal invention has been destroyed.

The question for today is this: are we are living at the end of the American way of life? Has it been destroyed so badly that it is unable to be returned with the mere election of new leaders?

Voter ID Laws Winning, Obama and Holder Losing

-By Warner Todd Huston

Not only are the courts across the country upholding the ballot integrity efforts of Voter ID laws–including the U.S. Supreme Court–but even majorities of nearly every section of the American public are polling in favor of voter ID requirements. This means Obama, his activist Attorney General Eric Holder, and the leftist intelligencia are losing this issue big time.

The left claims that voter ID laws are the second coming of racist Jim Crow laws. They say it is onerous for people to have to get a valid photo ID in order to vote. They say having to get a photo ID is somehow “just like” the expensive poll taxes forced on blacks between the end of the Civil War and the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

But, since photo IDs can be gotten for less than $10–and in many cases, free of charge–in every state in the union, this claim of left-wing liars is hard to make Americans believe. And the polls show it.

But the courts are agreeing.

Pat Quinn’s Major Loss Over Forced Healthcare Worker Unionization

Several years ago the Governor of Illinois decided with a fiat decision to hand his union buddies millions of free taxpayer dollars by suddenly forcing all private in-home healthcare workers to be unionized without their knowledge or approval. Today the U.S. Supreme Court said that Illinois was not allowed to do this.

The year was 2003 and Democrat Rod Blagojevich–who later went to jail for corruption–was the governor who decided that all Illinois citizens who get a stipend from the state to help them take care of their mentally and/or physically disabled family member must be unionized.

This one is pretty amazing. The US Supreme Court has delivered a unanimous slap to the President saying that his recess appointments were illicit. Even the court’s liberals said Obama was wrong on this.

If you are out of the loop, here is what happened: Obama wanted to make some extremely partisan appointments to the National Labor Relations board (NLRB) so that he could deliver even more pro union decisions in the disputes between labor and businesses that the NLRB is set up to adjudicate.

The U.S. Senate did not like his choices because the folks Obama wanted to appoint were obvious union shills that would further erode the NLRB’s status as an unbiased arbitrator between labor unions and the business sector (as it is supposed to be).

Media Malpractice on ‘New’ (Actually Old) Scott Walker Charges

-By Warner Todd Huston

When most of you woke up today you saw media coverage all across the country breathlessly “reporting” that Republican Governor Scott Walker was facing “new” charges that he engaged in a “criminal scheme” to illegally coordinate with outside groups during his 2011/2012 recall election. But the fact is, the allegations were all dismissed and this isn’t anything “new” at all.

The “news” that occurred on Thursday is that groups suing the state for its unfair and illicit investigation asked a judge to release documents pertaining to the invalidated “John doe” investigation. So, the “charges” that were reported as if they were new on Thursday night and all day Friday are not “new” charges at all. They are just old charges being made public for the first time.

As I wrote at Breitbart:

The initial series of far-reaching investigations were declared at an end on March 2 of last year. It resulted in no charges being filed against the governor.

Despite the purported end of the investigation, though, prosecutors continued their attacks on Walker and his associates until by May of 2014 U.S. District Judge Rudolph Randa issued an injunction calling into question the legitimacy of the whole operation.

The information released Thursday came at the behest of the conservative groups suing officials for using the prosecutor’s office to launch a political campaign against them in violation of their rights to free speech.

So, as you see, these documents were released at the request of people who support Gov. Walker so that they can show the public how the state violated the law.

Fed. Judge Puts Halt to Abuse of Justice in Wisc. ‘John Doe’ Raids

-By Warner Todd Huston

For the last three years a Democrat affiliated Milwaukee County District Attorney has been engaged in a political jihad of sorts, using “secret subpoenas” and illegally invading homes and offices of a wide range of conservatives and Republicans in an “investigation” into collusion between activist groups and Wis. Gov. Scott Walker’s re-election campaign. At last, a federal judge has ordered that the illicit probe be halted on First Amendment grounds.

Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm, two of his assistant DAs, and Special Prosecutor Francis Schmitz, launched a politically motivated investigation into whether or not Eric O’Keefe and his group the Wisconsin Club for Growth–a conservative activist group–illegally coordinated with Gov. Walker and other Republicans during the 2011 and 2012 recall election campaigns. The case was titled the “John Doe” investigation because all the accusations were made anonymously, many of the subpoenas were hidden behind a “secrecy rule”–meaning those accused could not even see them–and many of the proceedings were hidden from the public in secret court proceedings.

Also, as the wide-ranging search warrants were served, many of the accused were held and denied access to their lawyers. The raids were para-military styled, implemented in pre-dawn hours, and swept up not only business records, but personal records along with those of family members.

At last, a federal judge has ruled that this whole Democrat jihad amounts to a witch-hunt that is in violation of the rule of law. Worse, that it is drenched in violations of the rights of the accused not the least of which is their First Amendment rights.

Suburban Chicago Judge Legally Declared Insane Wants Back on Bench

So, a Chicago suburb has a woman who was fortunate enough to become a Cook County judge even though she has severe mental problems… and by severe I mean besides being a black power-pushing, halfwitted Democrat. I mean she was actually diagnosed as a mental case and suspended from the bench because of it. But typical to Chicago, now this nutcase expects to get her job back. Because raaaaacism, I suppose.

The nutcase in question is one Cynthia Brim, 55, who was a traffic court judge at the Markham courthouse. In 2012 she went off her nut and began ranting from the bench. Ultimately she was diagnosed with a mental disorder, proscribed a drug regimen to keep her ranting to a minimum and then suspended from the bench.

She even had battery charges filed against her when she went crazy in the court room in 2012.

In an important decision striking down the votes of the people of Virginia, a Federal Judge proved she didn’t known the difference between the Constitution of the United States and the Declaration of Independence. Thank you liberal educational establishment.

When U.S. District Judge Arenda L. Wright Allen issued her ruling taking away the vote of the people of Virginia and maintaining that the state’s affirmation of traditional, one man-one woman marriage was unconstitutional, she insisted that it was because the U.S. Constitution said that all men were created equal.

Of course, anyone with a fourth grade education knows that it is the not the U.S. Constitution that makes this declaration but is instead the more aptly named Declaration of Independence.

Here is how this “educated” judge began her cliché-laden opinion.

Police Union Criticized for Using Video of Cursing Black Toddler to Decry ‘Cycle of Violence’

*Warning* The video above is NSFW, it is filled with foul language*

The policemen’s union in Omaha, Nebraska, has come under fire for using the video of a cursing, middle finger-waving black toddler to highlight the “cycle of violence” and the “thug cycle” that officers have to deal with as children grow up.

The union is being called racist for using the video of a black three-year-old as an example of the “thug life” that some many teenagers grow up to emulate.

The diapered child who appears to be about three or so–just learning to talk–is seen giving his parents the middle finger, repeating curse words, and calling himself and others a “ho.”

Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro is so flabbergasted by the mess that is the Obamacare website rollout that she recently wondered if a groundhog had advised the administration to dive back into their hole and put the thing off for another six weeks of bleak Obamacare winter.

Pirro slammed Obama for giving the nation a six-week reprieve on Obamacare because, as the administration says, “we are confused” about Obamacare. She goes on to slap Obama for claiming it is we, the people, who are at fault for the disaster that is Obamacare.

Then she amusingly asked where Obama got his “six more weeks” of putting off the law using a clip from the movie Groundhog Day to ridicule the arbitrary decision to make it six weeks.

George Soros Funding ‘Nonpartisan’ Attackers of Kansas Gov. Brownback

-By Warner Todd Huston

It is now being reported that billionaire liberal activist George Soros is the bankroll behind the “nonpartisan” attacks on Kansas Governor Sam Brownback’s new judicial selection plan.

Two organizations in Kansas have led the charge against the Republican Governor’s proposal and both claim to be nonpartisan. But the two groups, Justice at Stake and the Kansas chapter of the League of Women Voters, are receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars from two of extremist Sorros’ liberal organizations in a similar way that Colorado’s liberal organizations implemented the “Colorado model.”

Brownback has been supporting changes in the state’s process of appointing judges. Previously Kansas judges were chosen by a commission made up of lawyers who are unaccountable to voters but Brownback has been pushing the adoption of the federal model where judges are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the State Senate.

Investigation into Wis. Gov. Walker Ended, No Charges Filed

-By Warner Todd Huston

The so-called John Doe investigation into Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has now come to a conclusion with no charges filed against the Governor.

The probe has dragged on for three years netting a few of Walker’s associates from his days as Milwaukee County Executive and other tangential figures but the Governor himself was left untouched by the investigation. Retired Appeals Court Judge Neal Nettesheim signed the order to close the investigation on March 1.

“I realize the frustration on the part of some people with the length of the investigation. But I’m satisfied with how it went,” Judge Nettesheim said on Friday.

Reviewing the case, the judge pointed out that prosecutors interviewed and took testimony from hundreds of witnesses, and raided the homes of several Walker associates seizing documents.

“The whole purpose of the John Doe is to inquire whether possible criminal activity occurred,” said the retired judge. “The John Doe served its purpose. It’s to resolve uncertainty and to go where the evidence takes you.”

Well, this is an interesting development. Remembering that Illinois is the only state that has a concealed carry ban still on the books, a federal judge ruled the ban unconstitutional and told the state legislature it has180 days to dump the ban and write legislation allowing for concealed carry.

Judge Richard Posner presides over the Seventh Court of Appeals in Chicago and wrote, in part, that the Supreme Court has already ruled that self-protection and, therefore, concealed carry, is an individual right under the Second Amendment. So, Illinois is violating the Constitution.

Still, Posner felt that some restrictions might be OK under the Constitution.

CBS ‘The Good Wife’ Pushes Global Warming, Anti-Tea Party Themes

-By Warner Todd Huston

TV’s The Good Wife, an episodic drama on CBS, wears its left-wing politics on its sleeve and this week’s episode was no exception as a TV courtroom judge was depicted pushing global warming from the bench. This isn’t the first time as the same character has in the past pushed anti-conservative themes.

As the courtroom scenes opened, the character portraying the judge in a sexual harassment case entered spouting global warming tropes. “I hope you’re staying cool today on this unusually hot November day.” He then joked, “I hope you don’t mind me saying: Global warming 1, skeptics 0.”

The court case in the episode had nothing at all to do with science or global warming but centered on a male soldier sexually harassing a female army officer.

Admittedly, it was sort of amusing how the show depicted the courtroom’s reception of the judge’s global warming “joke.” After he delivered it, the scene was a dead silent, stonefaced crowd. Immediately after his global warming line, the “judge” went on to slam the U.S. government essentially for misusing America’s armed forces.

“I have great respect for all those in uniform, no matter how our government sees fit to employ them,” the character said.

Indiana Law Gives Citizens Legal Right to Shoot Out-Of-Control Cops

Apparently the State of Indiana has passed a law allowing citizens to use deadly force against out of control officers of the state, including police officers, who unlawfully enter their home. This is a very touchy subject, especially for conservatives. Can we as law and order types agree that such a deadly force law is a good idea? Or should we defer to the police at every instance?

Well, I can’t speak for all conservatives, of course, but for me, I can’t agree with this law more.

Now, before you get all crazy about how I just don’t understand law “enforcement,” let me warn you that my father, a man I dearly love and respect, was in police work for most of his adult life. I am proud of his service. For the most part I respect and sympathize with our officers of the law. So,l et’s get beyond that.

So, while I most certainly sympathize with our law officials, I sympathize with our founders’ vision and the natural rights they invoked more than I do the expectation that officers of the law can act with impunity. That is why I put “enforcement” in quotes. Properly constituted our law officials don’t “enforce” anything. They really only investigate crime, they don’t and shouldn’t proactively try to “enforce” anything as that implies the power to stop something that has yet to occur.

The ‘Fairness’ of the US Supreme Court

May 9, 2012 | Filed Under Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Frank Salvato, Government, Judges, Law, Liberals, PCism, Republicans, Society/Culture, Supreme Court, Western Civilization | Comments Off

-By Frank Salvato

In the aftermath of oral arguments in both the Patient Protection & Affordability Care Act and Arizona SB1070 cases at the United States Supreme Court, many in the mainstream media, as well as the many so-called political strategists of the Left, are setting the stage for a political inoculation. Progressive and Democrat pundits and operatives alike are declaring that should Obamacare be rendered impotent, and should the SCOTUS uphold Arizona’s immigration and border protection law, it would all be the doing of Right-Wing judicial activism. While this rhetoric may be a winning strategy politically, it is, nonetheless, what Progressives and committed Liberals believe.

The idea that the Supreme Court might be “fair” or “unfair” in establishing the constitutionality or unconstitutionality of any given case is a matter of perception. The frailty of the human ego – along with the pomposity of ignorance and the intellectual limitations of the constitutionally illiterate mind, sadly, facilitate the belief, by some of the more ardently political that should the Supreme Court rule in a way that does not run in lockstep with their political belief system, somehow the ruling is “activist.” And while I freely admit that the scourge of judicial activism does indeed exist, at the level of the US Supreme Court the action (or inaction) is quite rare.

Granted, each Supreme Court Justice possesses his or her own political ideology, but such is the nature of deliberative bodies stewarded by human beings. It is for this reason that great care needs to be taken by Presidents in making nominations to the United States Supreme Court. It is for this reason that pure ideologues and special interest operatives should be resolutely rejected from consideration for the bench by the United States Senate and not “rubber-stamped” as giving the President his due. And it is for this reason that both past Presidents and members of the Senate have failed the American people by allowing ideologues and special interest nominees to have reached the bench.

The Motion, text

-By Paleo Skeptic

As stated elsewhere, this is the text of the motion in the US District Court of Western Missouri from an advance copy. There are a few things that I want to note before we get to the text of the motion itself.

One of the big ones is the complicity of the Missouri Attorney General, Chris Koster (D-Cass). Koster is well-known for only taking on cases which are politically significant to him; most recently being the big tobacco settlement, whose funds went to shore up the failing state university system. This makes liberals happy when one of their primary indoctrination mechanisms remains intact. But it should be noted that selective enforcement of the law, and especially when a political opponent is an opposing party, is quite the norm for Koster’s office.

Secondly, it should be noted that the incidents described in this motion are by no means isolated. There are at least two occasions involving different persons that the prosecutor’s office of Platte County, under Eric Zahnd, has relied on the statements of mentally ill persons in a questionable fashion, not to mention the occasions disclosed by commenters at this site.

And third, let me state that I have seen the documentation in question, and studied it in depth. The claims made in this motion are true and verifiable.

Article On John Edwards Never Once Mentions ‘Democrat,’ But attacks Republicans Five Times

-By Warner Todd Huston

Curiously, the same Atlantic article that rightfully points out that the Old Media was “late to report” on Democrat candidate for President John Edwards’ extramarital affairs an corruption makes its own strange omission from the storyline by somehow forgetting to mention even one time that Edwards was, indeed, a Democrat. Yet five times the piece mentions “Republicans” in order to lead the reader to question motives and cast aspersions on the Grand Old Party.

This one can be chalked up to one of our favorite games, the “name that party” game, where one can read an entire story about a troubled or criminal politician without once being told that the subject is a Democrat.

In his piece headlined, “Why the John Edwards Trial is a Bigger Deal Than You Think,” for The Atlantic, blogger Hampton Dellinger goes into detail about Edwards’ prosecution and tries to tell us what it is all so unusual about the situation.

But it is strange that Edwards is never fully identified as a former candidate for the Democrat nomination for President. On the other hand, Dellinger spares no effort to name Republicans in order, perhaps, to provide mitigation for Edwards.

While Dellinger never uses the word “Democrat,” he goes for the throat of any Republican he can connect to the Edwards case, even if tangentially.

Comparison: Politico Lauds ‘Forceful’ Gov’t Obamacare Argument, Fox Notes it was Laughed At

The first arguments by the government in support of the already wildly over budget Obamacare law were heard at the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday and there is an interesting lesson in media bias that can be seen in the reporting of the day’s presentation. The difference between how the government’s opening arguments was reported by Politico and Fox News is an instructive case of media bias.

First let’s look at how Politico’s Josh Gerstein and Carrie Budoff Brown reported how the government’s arguments were received by the court.

Solicitor General Donald Verrilli Jr., representing the government, opened his argument Monday with a forceful and solemn plea to the court to grapple with the key questions in the case.

Well, “forceful,” and “solemn,” eh? That sure sounds like the government presented a serious and well-received argument, doesn’t it?

Now let’s see what Fox News had to say about those opening arguments.

For now, I want to take a look at the number of violations of federal law that 501 (c) (3) groups are allowed to get away with, simply on the basis that they happen to be “charitable organizations.”

In that letter to the Senator, I stated that there was:

• A government funding an NGO which operates to squelch constitutionally-protected political speech.

These would be some of the applicable federal laws:

§ 245. Federally protected activities

(b) Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, by force or threat of force willfully injures, intimidates or interferes with, or attempts to injure, intimidate or interfere with—
   (1) any person because he is or has been, or in order to intimidate such person or any other person or any class of persons from—
      (B) participating in or enjoying any benefit, service, privilege, program, facility, or activity provided or administered by the United States;

   (5) any citizen because he is or has been, or in order to intimidate such citizen or any other citizen from lawfully aiding or encouraging other persons to participate, without discrimination on account of race, color, religion or national origin, in any of the benefits or activities described in subparagraphs (1)(A) through (1)(E) or subparagraphs (2)(A) through (2)(F), or participating lawfully in speech or peaceful assembly opposing any denial of the opportunity to so participate—

This has to do with a man who had previously worked as a volunteer for two campaigns, one for governor and one for Congress, trying in vain to show the letters that he had received from those campaigns to a judge. The judge in this case was under the undue influence of an attorney from the 501 (c) (3) group, Ms. Katherine “Evidence Tampering” Wessling, who asserted on various occasions during the course of this same proceeding that this campaign volunteer was prohibited from engaging in Constitutionally-protected political speech.

Democrats Playing Politics With Judges Again

December 26, 2011 | Filed Under Democrats/Leftists, Judges, Law, Liberals, Media, New York, RightPundits.com, Senate, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

There was once a time when the courts were considered a place of staid scholarship and considered opinion. Those days have been gone for a long time as decades ago the courts became merely another avenue for Democrats to play politics not to mention a tool with which to install in America a left-wing agenda instead of a place to adjudicate the law. This week aged New Jersey Democrat Senator Frank Lautenberg gives us a prime example of the former that will inevitably lead to the latter.

In a move that surprised everyone in both New York and New Jersey, the decrepit Lautenberg submitted the name of New York Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer’s brother-in-law as his nominee for a federal judgeship in the Garden State. I say it came as a surprise because no one at all was aware that Schumer’s relative was even in the running until the nomination became public knowledge.

It smacks of backroom political deal making instead of a legitimate choice for the bench….

Media Forgets to Mention S. C. Immigration Law-Blocking Judge is Obama Appointee

December 23, 2011 | Filed Under Associated Press, Barack Obama, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Immigration/Immigrants, Journalism, Judges, Law, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Regulation, South Carolina, The New York Times, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

One of the Old Media’s favorite ways of attempting to hide the ideological track of a story is to somehow forget to mention to which party someone in the news hails or owes fealty to. In this case it is what they don’t report that misleads. This week we find a classic what-they-don’t-say story concerning the judge that blocked sections of South Carolina’s new immigration law.

For those unaware, U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel temporarily blocked segments of South Carolina’s new immigration laws because he claimed that some of its provisions impinged on federal prerogatives, things over which the state has no jurisdiction.

The South Carolina law was opposed in court by Obama’s left-wing, activist Department of Justice headed by Eric “Fast And Furious” Holder and a gaggle of civil rights groups and Judge Gergel agreed with these attackers issuing an injunction to stop implementation of the provisions in question.

The Old Media reported a lot of details in the story, of course. We learned all about who opposed the provisions, who scoffed at the injunction, in what District Judge Gergel hailed, and in some of the reports we even get to hear what Republican South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley had to say about it all. But one thing few of these news outlets seemed to report might help readers understand the decision better.

Judge Richard Mark Gergel is an Obama appointee.
