    As I noted here on June 30, 2017 Michael Flynn and Andrew McCabe have a past that predates the Trump presidency, one that provides ample motivation for the perjury trap that McCabe and James Comey set up after Flynn’s illegal unmasking. McCabe had a personal grudge against Flynn and the perjury trap was his revenge. It explains why McCabe would entrap Flynn in a seemingly harmless interview about contacts with Flynn’s Russian counterparts, advising Flynn he didn’t need to bring a lawyer along to complicate things: The federal judge who will sentence Lt.-Gen. Michael Flynn for lying to the FBI...

    Now that they will be back in the majority in the House of Representatives starting in January, Democrats are looking to ways to make raising taxes on Americans easier. Incoming House Rules Committee chairman Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass) announced he will not be abiding by the formerly bipartisan agreement to require a three-fifths majority to raise income taxes. “It should not be so hard for the government to seize the wealth that collectively belongs to the state,” McGovern said. “The notion that the person who earns an income should have protection against the government taking a bigger slice of it...
  • The Title IX Rule Change on Cross-examination is Crucial to Due Process

    Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos stirred up a hornets’ nest when she recently proposed a substantial revision of the rules for Title IX cases. Under the rules imposed during the Obama administration, colleges and universities were expected to follow procedures that stacked the deck against students accused of sexual assault or harassment. Those rules were heavily criticized by conservatives and liberals alike. Notably, many members of the faculty of Harvard Law School signed a letter attacking the Obama rules for their blatant unfairness. Among the changes proposed by Secretary DeVos is to allow cross-examination of hostile witnesses by counsel for...

    Senator Elizabeth Warren, during a commencement speech at historically black Morgan State University in Baltimore, admitted she is “not a person of color.” Warren, just two months removed from pushing the results of a DNA test as proof that she had Native American ancestry in her blood, was discussing opportunities and obstacles for minorities in her speech. “As a country, we need to stop pretending that the same doors open for everyone, because they don’t,” Warren said. “I’m not a person of color,” she added. “And I haven’t lived your life or experienced anything like the subtle prejudice, or more...

    The protests of the Yellow Vests and high school students going across France have led to complaints against police for the tactics they have used against the protesters. Now the Inspector General of National Police in France is investigating 36 of the allegations. Lawyers are filing complaints on behalf of Yellow Vests protesters who say they were mutilated or wounded by police grenade fire during protests. Meanwhile, the police are looking for better working conditions and payment of the massive amount of overtime they have worked to confront the Yellow Vests protesters. Interior Minister Christophe Castaner is meeting with police...

    Last month, the American Association of University Professors (AAUP), a labor union and foundation group out of Washington, D.C., that purports, in part, to support academic freedom, released a statement titled, “The Assault on Gender and Gender Studies.” It should send chills down the spines of any parents who have sent or are considering sending, their kids to college today. What “assault” on gender? It’s not the one you might think, the one by militant homofascists and “transgender” activists. Instead, their idea of an assault on gender is from those who seek a return to sanity by codifying in law...

    The wall. Say those words and you need say no more. There is only one wall on America’s mind. It was even the protagonist in a White House reality show. The TV ratings were boffo! Candidate Donald Trump vowed to build the wall on the Mexican border if elected, and has had only minimal success. The migrant caravans from Central America ­refocused attention on its absence at key crossing points. But the wall has grown into something larger than itself. It is the ultimate symbol of Trumpism to both supporters and opponents. To supporters, the wall, combined with better trade...

    How many people in the country of voting age can remember when Donald Trump won the presidency. Progressive socialists like Nancy Pelosi and RINOS like John McCain, mocked our President because he said he may have won the popular vote because of illegals voting. Is there voter fraud in our country? Absolutely.  Our voter laws have been torn apart by the progressive socialists in state governments. Motor Voter laws have no verification of the applicant is a citizen. On the DMV form, if you renew your license or get a new license, you are automatically registered to vote.  It was...

    The caravan of people trying to illegally enter the United States is taking steps to vindicate President Trump’s policy of keeping them out. On the one hand, 280 of them have been arrested by Mexican police for burglarizing residences in Tijuana. Meanwhile, another 100 of them have tried their hand at extortion by demanding $50,000 apiece as the price of them ceasing to assault the border and go home. The Trump Administration has flatly rejected this blackmail demand, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) urged consideration of what they termed “a reasonable request.”...

    A new study of violent crime and concealed carry law found no correlation between them. The study compared homicide and violent crime at the state level with changes in concealed carry law over a 30 year period, from 1986 to 2015. During this period there where large changes in the laws regulating the carry of concealed weapons. From the study: Results During the study period, all states moved to adopt some form of concealed-carry legislation, with a trend toward less restrictive legislation. After adjusting for state and year, there was no significant association between shifts from restrictive to nonrestrictive...

    Subtitle: Robert Yates & Alexander Hamilton Debate the Scotus. What happened to the Scotus? In this squib, we’ll find the Framers blameless for today’s runaway federal courts. Background. Under the British system, colonial court judges were appointed by, and served at the pleasure of, the Crown. The ninth indictment of George III in our Declaration charged him with making “judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their Offices, and the amount and Payment of their Salaries.” In a system in which the House of Lords was the supreme tribunal, colonial defendants logically feared political influence against them...

    The whiny submission of Mueller's SC to Judge Emmet Sullivan this afternoon, reeks of panic desperation and arrogance. There's also a critical piece of evidence missing. As Rex explains, Mueller can whine all he wants. None of it will wash with Judge Emmet Sullivan, who will now be incandescent with fury. After reading General Flynn's bombshell pre-sentencing memorandum earlier this week, Judge Sullivan on Wednesday ordered Mueller's team to produce to turn over all of the government's documents and "memoranda" related to Flynn's questioning. The whiny and petulant response by Mueller and his goons reads more like a press release...
