Reuters Spins a Tale of Scandal Involving Cohen and Falwell Jr. Over “Racy Photos”

The media think they have another bombshell on their hands.

This time it involves an “exclusive” by Reuters entitled “Trump Fixer Cohen Says He Helped Falwell Handle Racy Photos.” Sounds juicy, doesn’t it? Well, until you get into the details at least.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Months before evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr.’s game-changing presidential endorsement of Donald Trump in 2016, Falwell asked Trump fixer Michael Cohen for a personal favor, Cohen said in a recorded conversation reviewed by Reuters.

Falwell, president of Liberty University, one of the world’s largest Christian universities, said someone had come into possession of what Cohen described as racy “personal” photographs

So was Falwell having an affair that he needed Trump’s “fixer” to make go away? That’s certainly the impression you get from the headline. The answer? Nope.

…the sort that would typically be kept “between husband and wife,” Cohen said in the taped conversation.

Let me get this straight. Someone stole personal pictures of Falwell and his wife and the story to Reuters is that they sought to keep them private? The sheer level of scandal here is hard to comprehend. I had no idea husbands and wives do intimate things that they’d like to not be shown publicly. Thanks Reuters, for reporting this story which seeks to do nothing but embarrass someone.

They go on to suggest that Falwell Jr.’s endorsement might have been based on Cohen helping him take care of the issue with the photographs. Their evidence? Well, they have none, but when has that ever mattered?

Reuters has no evidence that Falwell’s endorsement of Trump was related to Cohen’s involvement in the photo matter. The source familiar with Cohen’s thinking insisted the endorsement and the help with the photographs were separate issues.

There was a time when the highlighted area meant this would have never gone to print. But we live under Trump rules now, which means anything that can even slightly poke at the President is worthy of publication.

In reality, Falwell Jr. was being illegally blackmailed.

The Falwells told Cohen that someone had obtained photographs that were embarrassing to them, and was demanding money, the source said. Reuters was unable to determine who made the demand. The source said Cohen flew to Florida and soon met with an attorney for the person with the photographs. Cohen spoke with the attorney, telling the lawyer that his client was committing a crime, and that law enforcement authorities would be called if the demands didn’t stop, the source said.

The matter was soon resolved, the source said, and the lawyer told Cohen that all of the photographs were destroyed.

Instead of reporting that as the primary story because blackmail is bad, Reuters chose to frame their headline and the majority of the story as Falwell Jr. having some scandalous activity covered up by Michael Cohen in exchange for an endorsement.

That’s journalism today.

My personal opinion of Jerry Falwell Jr. is pretty low. Despite that, I have no problem saying that this is garbage reporting. The headline alone appears slanderous in its purposeful omission. They could have easily put “…with his wife” after “racy photos” and it would have still fit fine. They didn’t do so for obvious reasons.

We’re often told that the right are the scary, violent people that we as a society should consistently watch out for, and yet it’s the radical left that continues to demonstrate that their violence is the real threat.

This was demonstrated quite recently by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill when a woman approached a couple of pro-life men with a sign on campus. The woman asked the men if the sign was theirs and immediately began pummeling and kicking the man.

The two men remained very calm throughout the attack, with one of the men calling the police. As he did so the woman began screaming at them about how they were horrible people and that the sign they were displaying was “triggering.”

The police arrived and informed the two men that while she wasn’t being put in handcuffs she was being arrested via citation and charged with a misdemeanor.

While I wish I could say that this was an uncommon occurrence, this is just a handful of attacks on pro-lifers by crazed pro-abortion advocates.

Last October, a video surfaced of a woman who was continuously attacked by a pro-abortion social justice advocate when she wasn’t looking. Attempts to separate the pro-abortionist from the pro-life woman were unsuccessful, and the woman continued to try to incite violence after the pro-life woman managed to get away.

Just earlier that month, a pro-abortion man with a history of violence against pro-lifers roundhouse kicked a woman who had come to debate him.

Thankfully, in all cases, these violent pro-abortion advocates were punished in some way, shape, or form. However, this obviously hasn’t stopped pro-abortion radicals from lashing out at pro-lifers.

Is Nadler Really Sure He Wants Mueller To Testify?

I’m getting a sneaking suspicion the Democrats may not really want Special Counsel Robert Mueller to testify before Congress, despite their demands to the contrary.

Here’s why: Now that President Trump has exerted executive privilege on the full Mueller report, Nadler has publicly stated he is “worried” this may delay Mueller’s testimony because Mueller is still an employee of the Justice Department. Once Mueller resigns — and Nadler says he’s not sure when that might be but he believes it’s imminent — Mueller becomes a private citizen and no one can stop him from testifying.

“I think the president will try to stop Robert Mueller [from testifying] — whether he will succeed is another question,” Nadler said, adding he’s “less confident” than he was before that Mueller will testify.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that she was not aware of any requests to block Mueller from testifying or keep him at DOJ longer now that Trump has asserted executive privilege.

“The president’s made his feeling on that very clear and the way that we see that is that this is over and just because the Democrats didn’t like the results doesn’t mean they get to redo this process,” she told reporters.

The overt implication is, of course, that Trump asserted executive privilege to block Mueller because he’s worried Mueller might reveal some heretofore unrevealed collusion truth (yawn). And as many times as the White House explains that their claim of executive privilege is a result of Nadler’s own attempt to hold Attorney General Barr in contempt for not turning over the full, unredacted report — redactions, remember, that are required of him by law — it simply won’t sink in.

The Justice Department has argued that Nadler’s effort to compel production of the report would require Barr to break laws protecting the secrecy of grand jury evidence that Mueller gathered. The DOJ also said that Democrats have rushed to take punitive action against the Justice Department without good faith negotiations.

The escalation followed a day of negotiating between Nadler’s office and Justice Department officials. Democrats asked that all members of the Judiciary and Intelligence committees be granted access to a minimally redacted version of Mueller’s report, an increase from the 12 senior lawmakers currently allowed to view it.

But the Justice Department balked at the request, calling it “unreasonable” and suggesting such broad access for lawmakers could risk the disclosure of protected information.

But let’s face it, if the White House had quietly sat by and let Nadler hold Barr in contempt (which they’re working on as we speak), Nadler wouldn’t be able to use their reticence as an excuse for saying he’s worried Mueller may be blocked when, in fact, Mueller testifying is probably the last thing Nadler — or any Democrat — really wants.

Given that Mueller’s report found nothing indicating collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia — but did reveal quite a bit about potential spying on the Trump campaign by Democrat operatives which will likely lead to an investigation into the investigators — Nadler certainly knows any new easter eggs Mueller might reveal in testimony could damage his party before it ever damages team Trump.

And if he doesn’t know that, he should probably begin to really think about why Republican Rep. Devin Nunes has joined the cause of his colleague on the Intelligence Committee Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff  in threatening “compulsory” action against the DOJ to force them to turn over all information related to the Mueller files.

Chick-fil-A Rocketing to Third Largest Food Chain Despite Leftist Efforts to Stop It

Westlake Legal Group AP_220143630517-620x301 Chick-fil-A Rocketing to Third Largest Food Chain Despite Leftist Efforts to Stop It Starbucks Politics mcdonalds leftists Front Page Stories Featured Story fast food democrats customer service chicken sandwich Chick-Fil-A Business & Economy Allow Media Exception

The Christian chicken sandwich fast food chain known as Chick-fil-A has had no shortage of enemies due to its unapologetic Christian stances, and despite attempts to stymie its growth, the power of delicious chicken could not be stopped.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Atlanta based chain that was founded in 1967  is poised to rise to the top thanks to rapid growth and unbridled success, only falling under McDonalds and Starbucks in terms of most successful fast food chains:

Now, five decades later, the closely held company this year is poised to become the third-biggest U.S. restaurant chain by sales behind McDonald’s Corp. and Starbucks Corp., according to food-service consultancy Technomic Inc. The growth reflects Chick-fil-A’s expansion over the past decade, as well as consumers’ broader turn toward chicken.

“We’ve been pretty consistent in how, over multiple decades, we’re going to take it slow and steady,” Mark Moraitakis, a Chick-fil-A senior director, said about the company’s expansion. “It’s paid off for us.”

Sales from Chick-fil-A’s restaurants have tripled over the past decade, reaching $10.2 billion last year, Technomic said, even though the chain is closed on Sundays, a practice implemented by its conservative Christian founder.

Chick-fil-A, also known for its customer service, has nearly doubled its store count to about 2,400 restaurants since 2007. The company now has locations from Manhattan to Hollywood. Its growing presence will test whether consumers will stick with the chain as they have in the South, Chick-fil-A’s historic base.

This success comes in defiance of the consistent barrage of hate it receives from leftist activist groups and journalists. Recently, the San Antonio city council banned Chick-fil-A from its airport after a Think Progress report published the company’s donations. New Jersey’s Rider University also forbid Chick-fil-A from setting up a location on its campus over its Christian values.

The media also did its fair share of trying to halt Chick-fil-A’s meteoric rise in popularity, as one Huff Po writer attempted to do after they opened up a location in New York. The writer informed everyone that they could either choose to support the LGBT community or continue to eat that nefarious “hate-chicken.” He had drawn battle lines in the sand.

Everyone seems to have ignored the lines altogether.

The fact is that the very Christian values that activists and journalists on the left hate about Chick-fil-A are the same values that continue to make it wildly successful. The customer service is so good that it’s taken on a life of its own, even going so far as to become a meme. The phrase “it’s my pleasure” immediately makes you crave waffle fries.

The Idiocy of Fighting Against Chicken Nuggets is a Symptom of the Celebrity Activist Syndrome Afflicting Alyssa Milano

Westlake Legal Group Alyssa The Idiocy of Fighting Against Chicken Nuggets is a Symptom of the Celebrity Activist Syndrome Afflicting Alyssa Milano Wendy's Social Media Popular Culture Liberal Elitism Hollywood Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post Entertainment Culture Conservatives Celebrity activism California Alyssa Milano Allow Media Exception

 

In trying to change the world to her worldview Alyssa Milano becomes one of the better voices for conservative policies.

The term “virtue signaling” is used to describe when an individual or an institution makes a statement, or takes a particular stance on an issue for the expressed purpose of framing themselves as a noble and upright member of society. While it appears to be a selfless act what is truly taking place is posturing — “Look at how great I am, and so much better than you!” is the actual intent.

To this extent occasional actress Alyssa Milano can be said to be “virtue living”. Her entire existence appears to be little more than working to position herself and posture on behalf of any number of causes, all of which seem to do little more than highlight what a great person SHE is. Alyssa is the embodiment of cause celebre. Her latest agenda item? Lashing out at a fast food giant over their menu selection, as Thomas LaDuke recently covered.

This follows her frequent decisions that lack a true purpose, and almost always lead to a failed result. She has vocally backed a number of Democrat candidates across the country in recent years, and almost every single one has lost their race. At the Brett Cavanaugh hearings she scored a prime seat behind the justice, in full view of the cameras. Why? Who knows, but she had zero impact on his eventual confirmation. She recently led a petition of dozens of quasi-celebrities to boycott Georgia and threaten to have Hollywood pull its production business from the state over the heartbeat bill. The result – the ink is still wet where governor Kemp signed the bill into law…and Marvel is still producing its comic book films to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars per.

Maybe in the face of those blatant and embarrassing losses she has turned her sights on a more benign issue? Her latest began on Twitter where, innocently enough, the burger chain Wendy’s (which has a notably fun social media footprint) made an announcement that the company was contemplating bringing back its specialty item, Spicy Chicken Nuggets.

It was from this innocuous tweet that she has launched into a multi-day screed against the burger outlet. The outrage rests on the fact that Wendy’s is not a member of a coalition of migrant workers, it seems. To this Milano extrapolated that since the company has not joined a particular group they are, by extension, in support of migrant women being raped in farm fields, or something???

Ignoring the fact that chickens – and by extension, their nugget foodstuff – do not derive from these rape-fields, what you have to look at here is that Milano is calling for a ban against a company that has not done anything objectionable. There is not any action Wendy’s has done to warrant this call for a boycott; the company has simply not joined up with a cause that Milano herself supports.

She wrote a lengthy post on FaceBook, where she makes little sense as she castigates the company for not being part of the Fair Food Program, and demands they bring members of the companies food supply chain to join in as well. Since the company has not yet done so, they are somehow culpable, it seems.

This is about sexual violence against women in the workplace, the only program proven to end that violence in the US agricultural industry, and your refusal to join that program, plain and simple.

“If you don’t join our group you are pro-rape,” is a rather sophomoric argument to make. Yet, this seems to be the only style of argument Alyssa is capable of making; rash, ill-thought, and factually challenged. The actress seems to operate from the belief that her outrage is sufficient to take to the public forum. And she also seems to resent when anyone else gets in on the political PR racket.

As detailed last week, fellow thespian Patricia Arquette was before Congress to testify on behalf of pushing the Equal Rights Amendment. Alyssa could not let another celebrity glom all of the headlines and, as a result, she felt compelled to release her own video, providing commentary that was just as Constitutionally ignorant as Arquette’s testimony. Milano rested on the brain-dead theory that women were intentionally excluded from being mentioned in the founding document — ignoring the fact that “men” are also never mentioned in the content.

I don’t have equal rights under the Constitution,” claimed the actress, never once indicating which particular rights she is denied currently. She then managed to disprove her own claim in her very next sentence. “It is time for the constitution to reflect the powerful principles of its first three words: We the People’.” The only way for Milano to make any sense here is by her declaring that somehow women are not to be included in the various mentions of “People” within the Constitution.

These celebrity activists have become one of the better tools for winning arguments and progressing conservative ideals in our culture. To a lesser extent, if recent evidence serves as any indication, Wendy’s has little to worry about concerning Milano’s call for a boycott of its stores. In truth, if her track record is any sort of indicator, they may enjoy record sales of their spicy chicken nuggets when they are returned to the menu.

Mueller Mounted a Full-Court Press To Block Release of Comey’s Memos; Here’s Why

Westlake Legal Group Trump-Mueller Mueller Mounted a Full-Court Press To Block Release of Comey’s Memos; Here’s Why Uncategorized Robert Mueller Michael Dreeben Judge Boasberg james comey Front Page Stories Featured Story Andrew McCabe

 

CNN reports that Robert Mueller tried to block the release of fired FBI Director James Comey’s memos of his conversations with President Trump over their concern that Trump and others  might change their stories after reading Comey’s version of events.

Lawyers for CNN and several other media outlets argued for the release of Comey’s memos and related documents at the U.S. District Court in January 2018. At the same time, lawyers for the Special Counsel and the DOJ argued that the release of the documents would interfere with an ongoing investigation.

Mueller prosecutor Michael Dreeben joined the SC and DOJ attorneys in a private hearing with the judge. They showed him copies of the Comey memos and shared specifics about the SC investigation. They ultimately convinced the judge to rule in their favor and to seal the records.

(The CNN writer, Katelyn Polantz, emphasized that this was atypical behavior for a Freedom of Information Act request. CNN lawyers had no knowledge at the time that Dreeben or anyone from the special counsel’s office had taken the unusual step of speaking to the judge in person to keep the records confidential. It wasn’t revealed until later.)

Judge Boasberg wrote: “Having heard this, the Court is now fully convinced that disclosure ‘could reasonably be expected to interfere’ with that ongoing investigation.”

(Note: Redacted copies of the memos were declassified in April 2018.)

The transcript of the January 2018 hearing, was released by court order yesterday.

CNN reports that at the time of the hearing, the Mueller team was negotiating with Trump’s lawyers to arrange an interview with Trump at Camp David and other related interviews. Although a meeting with Trump obviously never materialized, the mention of it as a factor to be considered offered the Mueller team another reason why the judge should not allow the release of the Comey memos.

The newly released documents provide a glimpse into the thinking of the Mueller team at that point of the investigation. The transcript can be viewed here.

In reference to the meetings with Trump and other witnesses, Prosecutor Dreeben told the judge, “Special Counsel is attempting to determine the facts that transpired in and surrounding those meetings.”

Regarding Comey’s allegations that Trump had asked for his loyalty and requested that he drop the Flynn investigation, Dreeben explained:

In any investigation of this kind, the recollections of one witness, if disclosed to another potential witness, have the potential to influencing, advertently or inadvertently, the recollections of that witness.

CNN reports:

Shortly after the meetings with Comey, Trump and the White House had publicly contradicted the FBI director’s story, saying the President denied asking him about “letting Flynn go.” Comey told his version of the story first during congressional testimony in spring 2017. Dreeben described how the Comey memos were essential evidence in the investigation and included far more detail about the meetings than what the former FBI director had said publicly in testimony.

Dreeben’s next remark was extremely revealing. Dreeben told the judge, “In this instance, a person whose conduct is within the scope of the investigation is the President of the United States.”

So, by January 2018, the investigation had essentially become all about obstruction.

He also “told the judge about how the FBI had opened the obstruction investigation before Mueller’s appointment.”

Recall that Andrew McCabe responded to Comey’s firing by opening an FBI criminal investigation into Trump for obstruction of justice. He offered the lame excuse on his book tour that he wanted to make sure the investigation would survive “if anything happened to him.”

Dreeben explained to the judge:

A witness who knows that a contemporaneous record was made of particular statements is aware that the reliability of that account is enhanced merely by virtue of the fact that it was recorded, and an individual who is seeking to shape or mold his own statements around those of others thereby acquires an advantage in doing so that he would not otherwise have. The more that other witnesses are aware of the details of what is in the memoranda and is not in the memoranda, the greater the risk that they’re providing information that will assist the Special Counsel in completing the investigation and getting to the truth would be frustrated or impeded.

It’s not a surprise that a judge would rule against releasing the documents when approached by lawyers from the Special Counsel and the DOJ. This was but a minor skirmish in the war against President Trump.

The larger point is it tells us that only eight months into a 22 month long investigation, the Mueller team was no longer concerned with Russian collusion. If Mueller were a fair-minded, decent man, he would have let the American people know that their President was not a criminal.

BUT HOW? New 2020 Report Shows Trump Kicking Democrats’ Butts in a Sacred Area They Claim to Own

Democrats have a very strange strategy for duping the daft: They take certain issues and refer to the left-wing side as representing all women. Or minorities. Or gays. Or the poor. And, I assume, they just hope their pitched notion will enter the ears of America, bypass the critical thinking part of the brain, and store itself right in the ol’ cranial hard drive.

Voilà.

Haven’t you heard? All women are liberal Democrats.

Example: Seemingly mentally disturbed Pennsylvania state Rep. Brian Sims harassed a pro-life senior citizen and three pro-life teenagers in front of a Planned Parenthood (here and here). After a buttload of condemnation, he made a sorta non-apologetic apology (see the article by RedState’s Brandon Morse) promising he “will do better, for the women of Pennsylvania” by protecting abortion.

Cerebral problemo: The elderly person and three teenagers were women, too.

Also intellectually unworkable, incidentally: He called them bigots:

Definition of bigot: Someone intolerant of an opposing view.

#FAIL.

Here’s a fresh shock to those who believe the gaggle of goobs slingin’ the girl-power goofiness: According to FEC data, in the first quarter of 2019, more women donated to Donald Trump’s re-election campaign than to any Democratic 2020 candidate.

But…how is that possible?

Oh, yeah — ’cause o’ brains.

In Q1, 10,375 chicks donated to, I guess, non-women’s issues. That’s more than double the sassy ladies who coughed it up for Kamala Harris — the leading Dem for female financiers.

She received dough from a wimpy 3,850.

To be fair, Trump per-lass average was lower than Kamala’s and Kirsten Gillibrand’s. I’m sure that can be spun any way you please.

Here’re the numbers for benefacting babes:

Big DT: 10,375
Kamala Harris: 3,850
Bernie Sanders: 3,271
Beto O’Rourke: 2,289
Cory Booker: 2,020
Pete Buttigieg: 1,335
Elizabeth Warren: 1,330
Amy Klobuchar: 1,321
Andrew Yang: 964
Kirsten Gillibrand: 960
Julian Castro: 563
Jay Inslee: 473
John Delaney: 451
John Hickenlooper: 362
Tulsi Gabbard: 164

So there ya go — despite the constant drone of pro-woman maneuvers, a whole lot of women haven’t bought it. What they’ve bought — literally — instead is an increased likelihood that the 2020 POTUS will be none other than ladies’ man Donald J. Trump.

Left Goes Crazy As Trump Pardons Unjustly Convicted Soldier

Westlake Legal Group behenna-620x466 Left Goes Crazy As Trump Pardons Unjustly Convicted Soldier Politics pardon Oklahoma military michael behenna Iraq Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump Allow Media Exception

Screengrab from https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1125693591056277506

Yesterday, President Trump did the right thing. He granted a pardon to former Army lieutenant Michael Behenna. Behenna was convicted by a court-martial in 2009 on the charge that he’d summarily executed an Iraqi bombmaker who had killed two soldiers in Behenna’s platoon.

Behenna was caught up in a spate of prosecutions of US soldiers for alleged war crimes and there is more than ample evidence that a decision had been made at some level–and not necessarily within command channels–tha Behenna was going down. His appeals, dismissed by a military appeals court, included evidence that the government’s own experts had provided testimony that Behenna acted in self-defense but that this had not been disclosed to his defense team.

Behenna was sentenced to 25 years imprisonment. That sentence was eventually reduced to 15 and Behenna was released on parole in 2014.

The left is not happy:

The actual facts in the case are much different than that being presented by the above bunch of losers:

Since his conviction, Behenna, an Oklahoma native, has won the support of former governor Mary Fallin (R), state Attorney General Mike Hunter (R), and more than 30 retired generals and admirals — among them Trump’s former special envoy for the Persian Gulf, retired Gen. Anthony Zinni.

Late Monday, Sens. James Lankford and James M. Inhofe of Oklahoma, both Republicans, praised Trump’s decision.

“I’m grateful that the long road for Michael Behenna and his family has finally come to a joyous end,” Lankford said in the joint statement. “Michael now gets a clean slate and a second chance at life.”

This is not a case of President Trump encouraging lawlessness. While Behenna was obviously deserving of some punishment for the events, a 25-year prison sentence and dimissal from the Army was a horrible miscarriage of justice brought on by the Army insisting on treating the Iraq war as though it was Officer O’Malley rousting some truants rather the brutal counterinsurgency that it was. This is a case of President Trump acting to overturn a political decision to make an example of a young man doing his best under difficult circumstance, and that was recognized as such by a large number of retired flag officers as well as numerous politicians who stood to gain nothing from getting involved in a case of cold-blooded murder.

BREAKING. House Democrats Melt Down As Trump Invokes Executive Privilege Over All Mueller Report Documents

I posted yesterday on the decision by the White House to instruct former White House Counsel Don McGahn to refuse to produce documents in his possession which were included in the Mueller report (see Former White House Counsel Declines to Respond to Jerry Nadler’s Subpoena). This drama was playing out in the context of a subpoena to Attorney General Bill Barr for the entire and unredacted Mueller report and the threat of a contempt of Congress citation when Barr declined to comply (see Joe Cunningham’s BREAKING: Democrats To Hold Barr In Contempt). Just a short while ago, the White House upped the ante by invoking executive privilege over the entire Mueller report.

President Donald Trump has invoked executive privilege to block an effort by House Democrats to access special counsel Robert Mueller’s unredacted report and underlying evidence.

“Regrettably, you have made this assertion necessary by your insistence upon scheduling a premature contempt vote,” Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote in a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler.

This has the effect of making a vote of contempt of Congress nothing more than a political act as Barr no longer has the authority to comply with the subpoena. It also puts more pressure on the House Democrats to either sh** or go blind:

As I noted last night, the way in which the White House shared the documents with Mueller was in his role as a temp employee at Justice, so there is a very good chance this claim will prevail in the current environment. The special counsel statute makes it clear that the special counsel’s report is to the Attorney General and with that, there is an implication that it doesn’t have to be shared. If the Democrats really want the entire report they have an easy way to get it: impeachment. Nixon-era court decisions basically invalidated executive privilege for an impeachment proceeding, but no one thinks the Democrats really want to go there.

The Trump Administration won a surprising and significant victory in that hotbed of #Resistance Lawfare, the Ninth Circuit.

In March, the administration announced a change to the process for evaluating the claims of persons seeking asylum. In the past, asylum seekers were allowed to remain in the United States as their claims were evaluated. The change required “other than Mexican,” aka OTM, asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while their cases were examined. This would obviously reduce the attractiveness of using a bogus claim of asylum as a way of disappearing into the hinterlands of the United States without worrying about being picked up by ICE for some years.

One of our black-robed masters disagreed and issued an injunction (read Mike Ford’s Leftist District Judge Decides National Policy). I was sort of surprised when the Ninth Circuit stayed implementation of the injuction and green-lighted an emergency appeal by the Justice Department (see The 9th Circuit Makes An Absolutely Shocking Decision On Trump’s Asylum Policy) and opined that that court might be poised to set aside the lower court order:

The decision to stay the lower court injunction was unanimous pending a brief. The fact that they did this so quickly and so overwhelming should point to the court leaning at overruling the judge entirely, but this is the 9th circuit. Don’t put it past them to come up with some insane justification for why the President can’t exercise his constitutional authority over immigration.

Now the Ninth Circuit has ruled:

A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that the Trump administration may, for now, require certain non-Mexican asylum seekers to wait in Mexico pending resolution of their cases.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit cited different reasons for permitting the “remain in Mexico” initiative to move forward after a lower court blocked it last month. The appeals court allowed the policy to continue only on a temporary basis, while the court considers broader issues in the case.

The “broader issues” are undoubtedly some clever way to sandbag the Administration after slapping on a patina of reasonableness. For instance:

Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain, an appointee of former President Ronald Reagan, authored the 11-page opinion and wrote that the administration was likely to succeed on legal challenges to the policy under federal immigration and regulatory law.

O’Scannlain also said the Homeland Security Department could face harm if a federal court order freezes one of its enforcement tools.

“DHS is likely to suffer irreparable harm absent a stay because the preliminary injunction takes off the table one of the few congressionally authorized measures available to process the approximately 2,000 migrants who are currently arriving at the nation’s southern border on a daily basis,” he wrote.

The other two judges — Obama and Clinton appointees — also backed allowing the policy to stay in effect, but raised questions about it in concurring opinions.

Judge William Fletcher, the Clinton appointee, argued that existing federal statute did not allow DHS to send migrants to Mexico under the program.

“The government is wrong,” he wrote. “Not just arguably wrong, but clearly and flagrantly wrong.“

I don’t know how a rational, sane, an non-corrupt judge can on the one hand overturn an injunction and on the other condemn the decision he’s supporting as being “clearly and flagrantly wrong.”

My guess is that the panel wanted to rule in favor of the lower court but was afraid that the Supreme Court would smack down this judicial tyranny again. Instead they gave a temporary win to the Administration as they huddle and contrive some novel legal theory on why the agency charged by Congress with enforcing immigration law acted illegally by enforcing immigration law.

Eventually, this whole matter is going to come to a head and John Roberts is going to be forced to act. For all of his talk about trying to protect the integrity of the courts he’s doing a damned shabby job of it in allowing the Ninth Circuit to run its own country in defiance of the law of the land.
