    The past 24 hours provided a clear and painful picture of the momentous challenges American Jews face these days. The day began with news that President Trump has issued an executive order designed, the White House said, to fight anti-Semitism. Reporting on the order, The New York Times stressed that it will “effectively interpret Judaism as a race or nationality, not just a religion,” and that it “could be used to stifle free speech and legitimate opposition to Israel’s policies toward Palestinians in the name of fighting anti-Semitism.” Leftist NGOs echoed the same talking point, and a phalanx of pundits...

    October 14, 2019 Dear Madam Speaker: (Dear Mr. President:) Pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), I hereby report that I have issued an Executive Order (the “order”) declaring a national emergency due to the situation in and in relation to Syria, and in particular the recent actions by the Government of Turkey to conduct a military offensive into northeast Syria. I have taken this action because recent actions by the Government of Turkey undermine the campaign to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, endangers civilians, and further threatens...

    By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows: Section 1. Purpose. The proposed Medicare for All Act of 2019, as introduced in the Senate (“Medicare for All”) would destroy our current Medicare program, which enables our Nation’s seniors and other vulnerable Americans to receive affordable, high-quality care from providers of their choice. Rather than upend Medicare as we know it, my Administration will protect and improve it. America’s seniors are overwhelmingly satisfied with their Medicare coverage. The vast majority of seniors believe...

    Keeping its focus on what really matters, the Trump White House is currently circulating drafts of an executive order that would address "anti-conservative bias" in social media. The exact contents of the executive order are unclear, but it is definitely not going to be good. One unnamed official who Politico spoke to offered the conservative rationale for the move: "If the internet is going to be presented as this egalitarian platform and most of Twitter is liberal cesspools of venom, then at least the president wants some fairness in the system." Of course, there is no anti-conservative bias in social...

    President Trump is considering an executive order to try to move forward with a citizenship question on the 2020 census, top sources tell Jonathan Swan and me. "We didn’t come this far just to throw in the towel," said a senior administration official with direct knowledge of the conversations. Former federal judge J. Michael Luttig, who has longtime ties to officials in the administration, told Axios: "If the president of the United States were to issue an executive order, supported by his full Article II powers, directing that the citizenship question be included in the 2020 census, I believe the...

    A federal judge in Alaska has ruled an executive order by President Donald Trump allowing offshore oil drilling of tens of millions of acres in the Arctic Ocean is "unlawful and invalid." The ruling on Friday from US District Court Judge Sharon Gleason means a drilling ban for much of the Arctic Ocean off of Alaska will go back into effect. On April 28, 2017, Trump issued an executive order reversing three memoranda and one executive order in 2015 and 2016 by then President Barack Obama withdrawing about 125 million acres of the Arctic Ocean from oil leasing. The Obama...

  • Trump Weighing EO To Ban Central American Migrants From Claiming Asylum

    10/25/2018 8:25:34 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 116 replies ^ | 10/25/18
    President Trump is reportedly considering implementing a plan to block Central American migrants fleeing for the U.S. from claiming asylum when they reach American soil. The move reported by the Washington Post Thursday night is the latest potential escalation in the president's preoccupation with a caravan of such migrants slowly trekking toward the the southern border. The report said Trump is looking at using authority like he did when he implemented a travel ban on certain majority Muslim countries to bar Central Americans from entering the country as a matter of national security. The Post reviewed a draft of the...

    It’s been a fascinating ten years. From 2009 to 2017, I was instructed that a President is unrestrained by the Constitution, and that they are all-powerful and can enact laws unilaterally, via Executive Order, and that they can ignore the Constitution as they see fit. But NOW we learn that Presidents are completely powerless and cannot rescind any Executive Order, set any Administration Policy, or hew to the written law, about any topic, for any reason. That is because to do so would violate unwritten parts of the Constitution. Let us review the actions that the News Misleadia and the...

    President Trump is starting his own government-wide environmental sustainability and energy efficiency program through an executive order he signed late on Thursday. The order directs federal agencies to manage their buildings, vehicles, and overall operations in order to "optimize energy and environmental performance, reduce waste, and cut costs," according to the White House. It also calls on the White House Council of Environmental Quality 'to streamline pre-existing environmental orders' by "refocusing agencies on cost-effectively meeting mandates and goals" established by law, as opposed to executive fiat. The White House pointed out that the federal government manages more than 350,000 buildings...

He said that they have the votes for the health care bill. They’ve got the votes but some senator’s in the hospital and can’t vote by the deadline, so they’re gonna wait until early 2018. Trump said he’s considering an executive order on associations which would allow coverage and buying of insurance across state lines, which will fix a lot of Obamacare. The insurance companies...

    Outdoor-clothing maker Patagonia hit back at President Trump on Wednesday, threatening to sue over an executive order calling for the Department of the Interior to review national monuments designated during Bill Clinton's, George W. Bush's and Barack Obama's presidencies. “A president does not have the authority to rescind a National Monument. An attempt to change the boundaries ignores the review process of cultural and historical characteristics and the public input,” Patagonia CEO Rose Marcario said in a statement.

Attorneys from the Department of Justice appealed the earlier ruling on Thursday in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The move comes a day after U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson issued a longer-lasting hold on key provisions of Trump’s executive order.

    The judge who halted President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban is the only Native Hawaiian serving on the federal bench. Nominated by former President Barack Obama in 2012, U.S. District Judge Derrick Kahala Watson is the fourth Native Hawaiian federal judge in U.S. history. He’s a graduate of Kamehameha Schools, which gives admission preference to Native Hawaiians.
