Stossel: 100 years of Communist Disaster

Federal Judges Have a Union?!

Did you know federal judges have a union?  I didn’t, until I read an article about President Trump’s new policy on improving our immigration courts.  Apparently, our so-called public servants are incapable of processing this tidal wave of illegal aliens in an efficient manner.  Here is an excerpt:

The White House says it aims to reduce an "enormous" backlog of 600,000 cases, triple the number in 2009, that cripples its ability to deport immigrants as President Donald Trump mandated in January.

 The National Association of Immigration Judges called the move unprecedented and says it will be the "death knell for judicial independence" in courts where immigrants such as political dissidents, women fleeing violence and children plead their cases to stay in the United States.

"That is a huge, huge, huge encroachment on judicial independence," said Dana Leigh Marks, spokeswoman and former president of the association and a judge for more than 30 years. "It's trying to turn immigration judges into assembly-line workers."

First of all, why do we allow federal judges to have a union?  This really didn’t sink in until I read the following paragraph and then I knew unions for judges actually existed:

The judges' union says its current contract language prevents the government from rating them based on the number of cases they complete or the time it takes to decide them.

 But now, they say, the department is trying to rescind that language, and advocates say it could violate a federal regulation that requires judges to "exercise their independent judgment and discretion" when deciding cases.

This is amazing!  Shouldn’t this raise a red flag to everyone?  Exactly how are these judges supposed to “exercise their independent judgement and discretion” when they belong to a union.  Unions promote a socio-political ideology that is the antithesis of independence and free thought.  Name a union that’s not!

Come to find out this is more pervasive than I thought.  Administrative judges in Washington D.C. voted to join a union in 2014.  Here is an excerpt from a press release:

Washington DC -- Administrative law judges who work for the District of Columbia’s Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH), the office which provides adjudication services for several DC agencies, voted overwhelmingly Thursday to join the International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers (IFPTE). Eighty percent of judges voting cast ballots for the union. Judge Jesse Goode, who hears cases related to unemployment insurance, said, “This has been a long time in coming. We wanted a union because we wanted a voice in making improvements to our courts. We specifically wanted to be members of the International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers because IFPTE represents nearly 2,000 federal administrative law judges. Sometimes the wheels of justice turn slowly even for judges, but today democracy prevailed and the union was voted in.”

Now they want an independent court system completely outside of the Department of Justice:

WASHINGTON — The federal immigration court system should be separated from the Justice Department and operated independently of federal law enforcement, the top two leaders of the immigration judges’ union said Wednesday.

 Judge Dana Leigh Marks, president of the National Association of Immigration Judges, said immigration judges act as arbiters in deportation cases being argued by Homeland Security Department lawyers but judges also are treated as attorneys for the government.

This is a serious problem.

North Carolina's AG Josh Stein Aids and Abets DACA Invaders

President Donald Trump needs to send a message to the Democratic Party and their third-world constituents:  We are a sovereign nation whose people believe in the value of citizenship and the rule of law.  DACA is officially rescinded.  Those who participated, along with their parents, have 90 days to leave the country or face criminal charges.  This invasion is over!

Make no mistake about it, this is a third-world invasion.  Worse, we have officials in law enforcement who are aiding and abetting these people.  North Carolina’s State Attorney General, Josh Stein, is a perfect example of a man who is more politician than an enforcer of laws.  He and a gaggle of progressive attorneys general are using DACA as a platform for their own political ambitions.

Unfortunately for Mr. Stein, and his illegal alien constituents, his suit exposes the extent of  this invasion in North Carolina. Here is an excerpt from the Charlotte Observer:

“Immigration is a vital catalyst to North Carolina’s economy,” the lawsuit states.

It further outlines the steady increase in the state’s immigrant population since 1990, growing to 7.6 percent in 2014, according to a study conducted by the Latino Migration Project at UNC-Chapel Hill, from 1.7 percent.

“This demographic change is due, in large part, to industries’ recruitment of foreign-born individuals, primarily of Latin American origin to fill available jobs that have been created as a result of the expansion of North Carolina’s economy,” the lawsuit states, noting that a Pew Research Center report in 2015 estimated that 350,000 people, or nearly 44 percent of North Carolina’s immigrant population, did not have legal immigration status.

The lawsuit states that North Carolina has one of the “largest undocumented high school populations in the country,” saying nearly 31,000 of the students enrolled in 2015 did not have the paperwork authorizing them to live in the United States.

Many of those students who have received DACA status have enrolled in colleges and universities and contributed to the tax base. Ending the program might force some of those students to leave high school and institutions of higher learning.

I have a question for Attorney General Josh Stein, how many American citizens have been displaced either at work or in our schools because of this illegal alien invasion?  How many American children have suffered because of limited funding and lowered teaching standards due to this invasion?  You, Mr. Stein, claim these illegal aliens contribute to the tax base.  Really?  True and honest scholarship states otherwise.  If anything, these people are a drain on valuable resources.  But don’t let the facts and the rule of law get in the way of your ambitions, Mr. Stein.  I’m sure your mentor, Governor Roy Cooper’s, success is an inspiration for all usurpers of law and order.


The Rule of Law Will Kill Obamacare

Democrats are in a panic.  They’re concerned President Trump might actually adhere to the Constitution of the United States by making Congress do their job as dictated in Article One, Section Nine, Clause Seven:

No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time.

That’s right.  This so-called Affordable Care Act has to go through the budget process.  Money has to be allocated by our elected representatives.  Finally, we have a president who believes in the rule of law, unlike his predecessor.  Barack Obama bypassed Congress and drew monies directly from the treasury.  This man acted like a third-world dictator and the American people let him get with it.

The American people might as well forget about Real and Replace. We'll have to let the budget process kill Obamacare, because Congress is incapable of passing one of those as well.  Luckily for the country, this monstrosity will wither on the vine as this charade plays out.   

However, Democrats don’t believe in the U.S. Constitution, budgets or the rule of law.  Progressive attorneys general are threatening to sue the Trump administration if they don’t act like a third-world junta.  They want the American taxpayers to bailout their party’s sponsored cartel: the insurance companies.  Here is an excerpt from CNBC:

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman called President Donald Trump's termination of the so-called cost-sharing reduction reimbursements "cruel," "breathtakingly reckless" and "unlawful."

"This is an effort to blow up the system," said Schneiderman. He accused Trump of lashing out in frustration over the inability of Republican allies in Congress to pass a bill that would repeal and replace Obamacare.

"We're not going to let him do it."

"We will be in court to defend these subsidies and fight this decision with everything we've got," Schneiderman said as he announced the lawsuit.

The system is already blown-up you damn libtard!  Nobody can afford this crap.  Democrats have been thrown out of office throughout the country because of Obamacare.  Why do you think Donald Trump is president?

I have news for Attorney General Schneiderman, we don’t need repeal and replace as long as we have the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law.

Conservative Organizations Demand Ouster of Senator Mitch McConnell

Conservatives are demanding the ouster of Senator Mitch McConnell as majority leader along with all of the acolytes that compose his fiefdom.  This man has proven himself at best an incompetent, and at worse a conniving, power-hungry scumbag.  Whatever it is, we’ve had enough.  Here is an excerpt a group of like minded organization sent to the Senator.

“You and the rest of your leadership team were given the majority because you pledged to stop the steady flow of illegal immigration,” the letter states. “You have done nothing. You pledged to reduce the size of this oppressive federal government. You have done nothing. You pledged to reduce, and ultimately eliminate the out-of-control deficit spending that is bankrupting America. You have done nothing. You promised to repeal Obamacare, ‘root and branch.’ You have done nothing. You promised tax reform. You have done nothing.”

Done nothing is right.  I have my suspicions that Senator McConnell wants Obamacare around as a dependable pinata that he and the GOP can bash each election cycle.  Afterall, Republicans were swept into office on the promise of repeal and replace.  It would be a shame to lose this meal ticket.

Republican Party Has a History of Internecine Warfare

The American people have come to the conclusion both political parties are D.C. centric.  Democrats have made it clear they’re for big, centralized government and their voters are okay with that. If anything, these Marxists are  angry this country hasn’t obtained a Venezuelan-esque paradise.

However, conservatives have had a rude awakening.  The Tea Party movement exposed the GOP for what it is, and it has nothing to do with limited government or the U.S. Constitution.  The Republican establishment thought they could exploit our movement; instead we exposed them.  Now we have internecine warfare where both factions are fighting for the soul of the party.

History has a way of putting things into perspective.  I’m currently reading Undaunted Radical: The Selected Writings and Speeches of Albion Tourgee. What an eye opener.  This book is a treasure trove for those seeking information on Reconstruction and its failures from the perspective of a Radical Republican.

Tourgee and his fellow travelers were exasperated by the failures of the Republican Party when it came to securing the rights and safety of freedmen and loyalists in the South.  Here is an excerpt from A Bystander’s Notes: The Afro-American League (1889):

The claim the Republican Party is all the organization the negro requires comes with very bad grace from the organs of a party which has shown itself thus far quite unable to deal  with the questions touching his rights as a man and a citizen - a party with the record of the inconsistency of 1876 upon its shoulders - an inconsistency so glaring that is seems impossible that any Northern Republican of average sensibility could ever ask a colored man to rely upon that party to remedy the evils which attach to his condition, at least until that crime against good faith and common sense has been retrieved.

The simple fact is the Republican Party is just like any other party.  It seeks success and, within limits, it advocates and does whatever its leaders and manipulators believe will secure success and avoids what they believe endanger the result.  This is the very highest merit of the party system, which progress yet devised for a self-governing people.  Strong, resolute, intense men, looking over the field of public sentiment, adjudge thus idea or that to be uppermost in the popular mind, and so order an advance along this or that portion of the line of policy the party occupies, and expect the rest without abandoning their position to remain comparatively quiet in any particular struggle.  It is for this reason that the Republican Party, after twenty-five years of aggressive movement along the line of individual right, thrust again to the front of the old Whig principle of protection and fought its battle almost solely on that issue.  It was not because it had not abandoned the principle of equal right and privilege, but because the leaders believed that success was more probable if the attack was made on another part of the line.  Many of its leaders, both during the campaign and since that time, have favored relegating the question of the rights of the colored man to the background.  They have “had enough of the nigger,” they say.


Dare I ask,  has today’s Republican establishment had enough of the Tea Party? I can most definitely say we’ve had enough of them.

Good Riddance, Senator Bob Corker!

Good riddance, Senator Bob Corker!  Tennesseans have had enough of your shenanigans and are holding the door open with a foot cocked and ready.  But of course, this tool for the U. S. Chamber of Commerce won’t go quietly.  No, he has to fire some parting shots at the man who is draining the swamp.  Here is an excerpt from the AP:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Bob Corker is hardly the only Republican lawmaker raising dark concerns about harm President Donald Trump might cause the U.S. and the world. But he’s one of the few willing to air those worries in public.

Most GOP senators were silent Monday, a day after Corker charged that the White House was an “adult day care” and Trump could set the nation “on the path to World War III.”

Trump is putting the nation on a path to World War III?  This yahoo can’t be serious.  It was Corker and his merry band of idiots who paved that road.  They allowed Obama to negotiate one of the worst deals in American history.  They are the ones who ensured a nuclear Iran.  It was Corker and the Republican establishment who trampled over the treaty clause of the U.S. Constitution.  That deal would’ve never been ratified had they followed the law of the land.

Senator Bob Corker can shoot his mouth off all he wants.  Soon he’ll be just an echo as he swishes down the drain with all the other fecal matter that floods Washington D.C.

The Drip

By T.L. Coston

A plague, I say, this tormentor of mind and thought
This darkness whispers transgressions; inconsequential rot
He caresses my brow; evoking distant slights
Exhuming memories entombed, forgotten … cast-off.

Thief!  Raider of sepulchres! Ghoul feeding off misery and discontent!
You prey upon my conscience with soulless intent
This drip, drip, drip laced with a Chinaman’s laugh
Provokes self-recriminations; embarrassing gaffes

Alone, in restaurants, in public places
Your touch - your evil doesn’t discriminate
A flash, a cry, then a subtle glance
Hoping and praying no one heard my penitence

Pedestrians startled by this damnable quirk
Pick up pace and disappear with furtive concern
Oh, you enjoy making me look the fool
A madman one step from the rubber room.

Drip, you’re a monster, be thy named
I firmly declare, you will not win at this game
Though you  may haunt taped corridors,

My sanity firmly bars that cursed door

2% of Counties Responsible for 51% of National Murder Rate

If the American people want a discussion on gun violence and murder, maybe we should focus on the areas and causations where it is prevalent.  Democrats would have us believe this is a nationwide problem, when in fact, 2% of the counties in this country are responsible for 51% of all murders.  Here is an excerpt from Zero Hedge:

The United States can really be divided up into three types of places. Places where there are no murders, places where there are a few murders, and places where murders are very common.

In 2014, the most recent year that a county level breakdown is available, 54% of counties (with 11% of the population) have no murders.  69% of counties have no more than one murder, and about 20% of the population. These counties account for only 4% of all murders in the country.

The worst 1% of counties have 19% of the population and 37% of the murders. The worst 5% of counties contain 47% of the population and account for 68% of murders. As shown in figure 2, over half of murders occurred in only 2% of counties.

We all know about Chicago, but what about California.  How does this libtard state compare to all others?  Again, Zero Hedge:

When you look at individual counties with a high number of murders, you find large areas with few murders. Take Los Angeles County, with 526 murders in 2014, the most of any county in the US. The county has virtually no murders in the northwestern part of the county. There was only one murder each in Beverly Hills, Hawthorne, and Van Nuys. Clearly, different parts of the county face very different risks of murder.

These high concentration of murders occur in liberal bastions. Is it any wonder Democrats want to turn this into a national problem when it’s their backyard causing all this woe and mayhem?


President Trump Dances With Snakes

President Donald Trump won the primaries and the general election on a promise to drain the swamp, but ended up dancing with snakes.  Last month, the MAGA man waded into the ophidiarium and had dinner with the head vipers in the Democratic party.  He cut a deal with these cold blooded, forked-tongued scoundrels to the astonishment of conservatives.

Today, he announced his willingness to work with the snake cult on reforming Obamacare. Here is an excerpt from the New York Post:

President Trump confirmed Saturday he’s made fresh overtures to Senate Democrats in hope of reaching a health care deal.

“I called [Senate minority leader] Chuck Schumer yesterday to see if the Dems want to do a great HealthCare Bill,” Trump tweeted at 8:17 am. “ObamaCare is badly broken, big premiums. Who knows!”

The president’s call signaled his impatience with the gridlocked GOP majorities in Congress, which have failed in multiple attempts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act this year.

“It shows the President can move without hesitation or ideological impediment to make a deal with the Dems,” a Republican source told Axios.

This is what I have to say to President Trump:  if you dance with snakes, prepare to be bitten.

American Libtard Story: Cult

I can say without a doubt the past two seasons of American Horror Story were a disappointment.  Hotel had potential but was completely marred by a gay vampires motif.  Nobody wants to watch guys humping each other.  The writers and producers should’ve learned a lesson from True Blood, but obviously didn’t.  And I didn’t even make it through last year’s, Roanoke.

The beginning episode of Cult had viewers relive the 2016 presidential election.  I enjoy nothing more than watching libtards freakout over election losses; it is something to behold.  You have to ask yourself,  why are liberals so heavily invested in presidential elections, whereas conservatives are not?  When Barack Obama won in 2012, we didn’t throw tantrums or slump over our desks balling our eyes out.  We didn’t have sessions with psychiatrist or smother therapy dogs.  No, we sucked it up and focused on midterms.

The reason liberals freaked out over the 2016 election is because they see the presidency differently than we do.  Conservatives see the executive in constitutional terms which delineates a defined role with limited powers.  Progressives obviously don’t.

Just look at how Barack Obama ruled this country.  He used the bureaucracies like no other.  This man trampled upon the Constitution and the rule of law with impunity.  And when the courts defied his edicts, he filled their ranks with like-minded drones.  The worker bees in the media applauded their queen in mom jeans as he fundamentally transformed the hive into a grotesquery.  

The reason liberals freaked over Trump’s election is because they believe we’re like them.  They ascribe their lawlessness and lack of character unto their foes.  They believe we’re mindless drones buzzing around our collective hive.  They believe we’re a cult just like them.  

New Bern Ghost Walk 2017

I enjoy this event.  It takes two nights to get through the whole thing. I find it refreshing when a town embraces and celebrates its history, unlike Charlotte.

Americans No Longer Have a "Common" Sense

Don’t you love being lectured to by a sanctimonious prick like Sen. Chuck E. Schumer?  This man purports to speak for the American people.  He claims to be the arbiter of American values and common sense when in fact he understands nothing.  This man is a beltway troll with totalitarian aspirations.

Progressives, like Sen. Chuck E. Schumer, do not believe in the Declaration of Independence or the U.S. Constitution.  I’m reminded of the time when he and a handful of his colleagues demanded the IRS violate the First Amendment rights of Tea Party organizations.  Now he’s using the NRA and its members as a foil to take away our Second.  This man is a menace to liberty and the American creed.  It is time we call out these people.  We need to expose their ideology for what it is: Marxism.

Mark Steyn summed it up on Tucker Carlson’s show by stating, “for a people to have common sense, we must have something in common.”  I can honestly say this country hasn’t been this divided since the American Civil War.  Back then, the fundamental difference was between North and South.  Today, it’s between rural and urban America; blue state vs. red state.

Just to emphasize the division within our country, one only has to look to our churches.  There are places of worship where parishioners don’t bring a Bible, the gospels are forsaken, and Jesus Christ is an afterthought.  They have transsexual preachers who emphasize the importance of not just embracing the sinner, but the sin itself; inclusiveness is more important than salvation.

Last July, I visited Shiloh Battlefield and came across a book that I’ve seen many times before, but passed over.  Because of the polarizing era in which we live, I decided to buy it  and just finished reading.   I recommend, The Cousins’ Wars: Religion, Politics, & the Triumph of Anglo-America.  I know the title will irk the snowflakes, but this book is a fascinating read.  Here is an excerpt on the politicalization of churches and divisions therein:

Of the Calvinist churches, closest heirs to the Reformation, the Congregationalists were almost nonexistent below the Mason-Dixon line, the Dutch Reformed  and German Reformed few and far between.  The Presbyterian Church had divided, in several stages beginning in 1837, into a southern-centered “Old School” denomination and a northern “New School.”  The latter was close to Congregationalism in Pennsylvania and the Great Lakes, overtly antislavery by the war’s outbreak, and a favorite church of Yankee businessmen.  The official regional separation came only as the war began.  Upon retiring back to Pennsylvania in 1861, ex-President James Buchanan, an old Presbyterian, refused to join the New School Church.

Church separatism was sectional politics by another name.  The Southern Baptists, too, broke away in 1845 to become a separate, pro-slavery church.  The Southern Methodists had done so in 1844.  The Southern Presbyterians not only defended slavery but worked up a biblical theology on its behalf.  As late as 1864, they formally avowed that “it is the peculiar mission of the Southern Church to conserve the institution of slavery and to make it a blessing both to master and slave.

No industrializing nation could have produced such theology, but that was part of what the South lacked: factories.  In 1860, Dixie had just 16 percent of U.S. manufacturing capacity, 35 percent of the railroad mileage, a small sliver of the bank deposits, and under one -third of the nation’s white population.  Northern states had manufactured 97 percent of the country’s firearms and 93 percent of its pig iron.  City dwellers constituted 36 percent of the 1860 population of the North, but only 9.6 percent in the South.

Prior to the Civil War, the citizens of the United States didn’t have common sense because they didn’t have anything in common as a people.  We have reached that point in 2017 and I’m afraid it will only get worse.

Panicked Commuters Flee the Good Word on a London Train

Christianity is the disinfectant for human cockroaches.  Unrepentant sinners are repelled by the spoken Word as was demonstrated in South-West London when commuters jumped off a passenger train.  They fled in panic when a preacher began to read from the Bible.  Here is an excerpt from Breitbart:

An eyewitness to the incident told The Guardian newspaper the “well-spoken and calm” preacher started reading from the old testament and told the carriage: “Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to talk to you about something and that something is the word of the Lord, Jesus Christ. He’s here to heal your sins. The Bible tells you that homosexuality is a sin and sex before marriage is a sin. You need to repent.”

All hell broke loose after that.  The operator had to stop the train lest the heathens get electrocuted.

We’ll have to keep this in mind when in need of a seat on a train or a bus,  All you have to do is whip out a Bible and proclaim the good Word and you’ll have a private car for the remainder of your commute.  Praise be Jesus!

Americans Need Nation-Wide Libtard Control

The ghouls just couldn’t wait.  The usual suspects wasted no time dancing around the dead in Las Vegas while singing their hymnals of gun control.  The priests and priestesses from the High Church of Libtard would have us believe guns are responsible for committing mass murder.  Their bumper sticker gospel may seduce the weak and stupid, however, we need to expose their religion.

I have a question.  What do all these mass murderers have in common besides shooting innocent people?  I’ll tell you.  Everyone of them are godless and evil.  They are nihilist who believe in nothing.  Had they respect for themselves and their fellow man, these atrocities wouldn’t have happened.

These kinds of mass murders hardly ever happened prior to the 90’s.  I can think of the Texas tower shooting in 1966 and that is it.  Prior to that, I can’t think of one.  This kind of evil is unique to our time.

Progressives say they want a conversation about the source of these atrocities.  Believe me, they want no part of that.  The simple fact is they’re afraid we might expose them as the source for all this evil and outright absurdity.  They’re afraid Americans will begin to wonder how we as people have forsaken our history and culture as a Christian nation.  If we truly were to have a conversation about the source for all this evil, the American people would demand nation-wide libtard control.

We need to emphasize the fact that progressives have successfully transformed our country into a godless hellhole.  They have taken Christ out of our schools and the public square.  They accomplished this by bastardizing our history, language and the Constitution itself.  Recently, Chuck Todd from Meet the Press, stated Judge Roy Moore doesn’t have a fundamental understanding of the First Amendment because he believes our rights come from God and not the federal government.  Chuck Todd is the one who doesn’t have a basic understanding of our Constitution.

Anyone who studies American history cannot detach the moorings of the Christian faith from its people. Progressives may have anesthetized a couple of generations from our birthright, but they cannot erase our past; it is there for the truth seeker.  For example, in 1890, a conference was held on the question of freedmen.  Judge Albion W. Tourgee, a radical Republican and ardent abolitionist, believed the United States was a Christian nation.  Here is what he had to say about the issues of his day:

God keeps account between nations and peoples as well as between man and man.  History is but a record of his judgement upon them.  The Negro is not only “here to stay,” but is here to offer the American Christian republic a chance to atone by justice in the future for the sin of the past, and thereby, escape the wrath of that God to whom a thousand years are but a day.  It is all very well to look to the future; but he who tries to separate it, from the past is as foolish as one who seeks to run away from his own shadow.  Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow are an eternal repetend.

And this from the same conference:

I trust I may be pardoned in advance if, in my remark, my religion and my politics should become not merely “mixed,” as Dr. [Lyman] Abbott feared that his might, but even if it should appear that my religion is mostly politics; for I trust it will also become apparent that my “politics” is not altogether at odds with what we term “religion.”  I confess I have never been able to distinguish between them.  Without religion, politics is simply a hot-bed of iniquity, the stamping-ground of devilish impulse; and, without politics, religion is as dead as “faith without works.”  When Christianity quits the field of political relation or politics discards the tenets of Christian philosophy, I have little use for either.

Progressives could use more Christian philosophy.  It’s disturbing when they refuse to show sympathy for those who were slain by a godless maniac.
