    The Democratic clown show goes on act after act....!! Entitled Elitist But Yet Powerless: Democrat Joe Kennedy Thinks He Can Subpoena President Trump’s Translator to Testify About Trump-Putin Meeting.... ""Democratic Rep. Joe Kennedy III called on the White House Wednesday to publicly recount what occurred in the private meeting between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. If the White House does not come forward, Congress should bring the president’s translator to testify, under subpoena if necessary, the Massachusetts congressman suggested during an interview on CNN’s “New Day.” Mr. Kennedy acknowledged that the proposal is complicated by potential legal issues...

    Today we have the Mueller team and every liberal in Washington frantically searching for any shred of evidence of even the lowest-level contact between a Trump campaign official and someone in Moscow to work against Hillary Clinton in 2016. Well, here, in this May 1983 document, we have indisputable hard evidence — an actual KGB memo — communicating straight to Andropov a direct offer from Ted Kennedy. The lead words atop the document: “SPECIAL IMPORTANCE.” The next words: “Committee on State Security of the USSR.” That’s the KGB. Then this stunning header: “Regarding Senator Kennedy’s request to the General Secretary...

    Republican senators called Thursday for the Senate to approve a resolution putting the chamber on record in support of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, saying the government’s top deportation agency does critical work in keeping the country safe. Led by Sens. Ted Cruz and John Kennedy, the resolution counters the call from a growing number of Democrats to abolish ICE over anger at the agency’s role in detaining and deporting illegal immigrants. “Abolishing ICE is unthinkable,” said Mr. Kennedy, a Louisiana Republican...

    When Donald Trump started running for the Republican nomination for president in June 2015, he began by attacking the Republican establishment in Washington, and he began his attack by calling the establishment "the swamp." His real target was the permanent government and its enablers in the legal, financial, diplomatic and intelligence communities in Washington. These entities hover around power centers no matter which party is in power. Beneath the swamp, Trump argued, lies the deep state. This is a loose collection of career government officials who operate outside ordinary legal and constitutional frameworks and use the levers of government power...

    The weekend of the first week of May, 2016 Anthony Kennedy told his wife Mary he wanted to go see his old friend Joe Smith in Baltimore, Maryland. Kennedy, who hated using a driver, or Secret Service guards, was determined to drive himself. Mary was concerned--but knew he'd do what he wanted no matter what she said. "OK, honey, don't forget your cell phone, so you can call me in case of emergency," Mary told him. The aged Supreme Court Justice dutifully put his cell phone in his pocket. The day went well, with the journey up I-95 uneventful. After...

    The Kennedy clan held a button-down rehearsal dinner Friday night ahead of this weekend’s wedding of Robert 'Bobby' Kennedy III and former CIA spook Amaryllis Fox. The shindig at the historic beachside Kennedy Compound in Hyannis Port on Cape Cod lured about 200 family members and hangers-on who munched on oysters, seafood and tuna freshly fished off Cape Cod and sipped Corona beer from the bottle in a tent built after day-long rains. The Cape Cod chic dress code included blue jeans, beach shorts, sandals and sun dresses. While it was an intimate affair, there were still plenty of boldfaced...

    President Donald Trump is closing in on his next Supreme Court nominee, with three federal judges leading the competition to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Trump’s top contenders for the vacancy at this time are federal appeals judges Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge, said a person familiar with Trump’s thinking who was not authorized to speak publicly. Working closely with a White House team and consulting with lawmakers and outside advisers, Trump has spent the week deliberating on the choice. He conducted interviews on Monday and Tuesday. He has not yet publicly indicated that he has narrowed...

    President Donald Trump's controversial tactics at the southern border have managed to draw the ire of a powerful neighbor to the north - the Kennedys. Ethel Kennedy and her brood have been vocal about their disdain for the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy for weeks now, with Ethel herself even announcing that she would be fasting in protest. And on the eve of Fourth of July the family launched a more direct attack on the administration - and First Lady Melania Trump in particular - by breaking out some paint and and green jackets, on which they each wrote: 'I...

    “Trained to Kill is one of those essential books that ‘our free press’ is all too likely to ignore, because of all the awful truth between its covers—especially its shattering confirmation that David Attlee Phillips of the CIA did introduce the author [Veciano] to Lee Harvey Oswald just weeks before the assassination of John Kennedy. While thus exploding the old myth of Oswald as ‘lone gunman,’ this chilling memoir also sheds new light on Che Guevara’s murder, Operation Condor, and the fanatic amorality behind the management of US covert operations.” —Mark Crispin Miller, professor of media, culture, and communication at...

    If you’ve been fed up with the left’s hijacking of America, he certainly is fun -- because bit by bit he’s dismantling their power, supply train, and prestige. The shaky premises upon which they’ve controlled life in America for some time is being exposed and overturned. Let me explain. Here comes the Judge This week the Supreme Court by 5-4 majorities upset three linchpins of leftwing rule in America: On Tuesday the Supreme Court released its opinions in Trump v. Hawaii and National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra. On Wednesday morning the Supreme Court released its final...

    Recently the Supreme Court, in a 5 to 4 decision, extended constitutional rights to enemy aliens captured on the battlefield and held outside the United States. As a result of this case, Guantanamo Bay detainees now have more rights than do prisoners of war under the Geneva Convention. This has never before been the policy of the United States, nor has the court ever before granted such rights to those detained outside of U.S. jurisdiction. The activities of a released prisoner, Abdullah Saleh Al-Ajmi, discussed in the following report written by the sister of the pilot killed on Flight 77...

    How dare an 81-year-old man retire from the Supreme Court. How dare he. That, in a nutshell, seems to be the widespread reaction among many liberals to the announcement that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy will step down from the bench next month. "Anthony Kennedy Just Destroyed His Legacy as a Gay Rights Hero," announced a headline at Slate. Twitter, that great Hieronymus Bosch painting of our collective id, was aflame in what can only be described as full-on liberal panic. "The future of our democracy is at stake," proclaimed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. This gnashing of teeth and...

    Years ago, when I was a young lawyer, I had an interesting conversation with a much older judge. He was a Democrat, an old-school liberal, and he said something revealing: “There’s the law, and then there’s what’s right. My job is to do what’s right.” Or, to put the philosophy in the words of one of my leftist law professors, “You determine the outcome first, then you do your reasoning.” Time after time, that’s exactly what Justice Anthony Kennedy appeared to do. I can think of few better summaries of Kennedy’s jurisprudence — especially in the cases that fired his...

    The retiring justice seems to have been a crucial obstacle to hearing Second Amendment cases. Although Anthony Kennedy joined all three decisions in which the Supreme Court has upheld the constitutional right to keep and bear arms, his retirement probably means the Court will be less reluctant to define the contours of that right. In the decade since the Court first ruled that a law was inconsistent with the Second Amendment, it has passed up almost every opportunity to resolve lingering questions about which forms of gun control are constitutional. It seems clear that Kennedy bears much of the responsibility...

It certainly isn’t for their health … Or for the media coverage. No, these Americans march on behalf of those who cannot. They march for uniquely vulnerable members of the human family. For the unborn. For those threatened by abortion. And for the countless innocent lives already lost. These Americans march...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spiked the panic on the left by announcing efforts to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy before the midterms. The Supreme Court Justice announced his retirement Wednesday, effective July 31, after more than three decades on the high court. His successor, chosen by President Trump, could transform the Supreme Court for years to come and the left is in a meltdown. “We will vote to confirm Justice Kennedy’s successor this fall,” McConnell said on the Senate floor after the news broke. Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley echoed the expectations that the nomination process would begin soon. “For...

    The golden age of conservative jurisprudence is here. Fisher v. University of Texas protected racial discrimination in college admissions. Justice Kennedy wrote the decision joined by Ginsburg, Sotomayor and Breyer. The court’s only African-American justice dissented. As did Roberts and Alito. Scalia had been the most vigorous of the Supreme Court members in challenging racial preferences in college admissions. But he had passed away. The 4-3 decision that continued the shameful tradition of progressive racist jurisprudence will become an impossible relic once President Trump’s next Supreme Court nominee joins Gorsuch on the bench. As we wrap up a season of...
