Trump Saves Lives!

Yet, you would never know it by press reporting. The United States Center for Disease Control just reported that for the first time in almost three decades, deaths in the United States due to overdoses on drugs have fallen, according to a Los Angeles Times Article yesterday. From the article

U.S. overdose deaths last year likely fell for the first time in nearly three decades, preliminary statistics suggest.

Nearly 68,000 drug overdose deaths were reported throughout the country last year, according to provisional figures posted Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The number may go up as more investigations are completed, but the agency expects the final tally will not exceed 69,000.

Overdose deaths had been climbing each year since 1990, topping 70,000 in 2017.

Deeper into the article we find (emphasis mine)

The improvement was driven by a drop in deaths from heroin and prescription painkillers. Those decreases were offset somewhat by continuing increases in deaths involving fentanyl, cocaine and stimulants like methamphetamines.

This. Is. Huge. Although correlation isn’t causation and it’s pretty early on, it appears that President Trump’s Opioid Epidemic fight is getting some good traction.

As always, the liberal LA Times pole vaults over mouse droppings to avoid crediting Trump, again, emphasis mine.

Strategies to reduce drug overdose deaths have included tougher policing, treatment program expansions, policies to limit opioid painkiller prescriptions and wider distribution of the overdose-reversing drug naloxone.

Haffajee and other researchers are trying to figure out what measures are most responsible for the slight improvement.

Not even a mention of the President’s program. Go figure.

Superintendent to be Disciplined After Active Shooter Drill Goes Too Far

After a school superintendent held a terrifying active shooter drill at Raisin City Elementary School in California, teachers asked for his removal at a school board meeting Tuesday. Superintendent Juan Sandoval held the drill without informing students, parents, or teachers, leading those on campus to believe that a janitor, wearing a mask and holding a fake weapon, was an actual shooter.

In a unanimous vote, the school board, who were also not informed of the drill, determined that Sandoval would be disciplined. They said “By a vote of 5-0 the board will approve appropriate disciplinary action and the board will schedule another meeting and give mister Sandavol an opportunity to respond,” they said.

During the open comment period, local news Your Central Valley reported that people spoke both for and against Sandoval being disciplined. “I was afraid, and I think he should have had the decency to let us know that this drill was coming. We had no clue, and it was very scary,” said one teacher.

Another man said that Sandoval simply made a mistake. “He made a mistake, but it was in the heart of what is good for everybody. It was in the heart of what was good for these children.”

In a future meeting, the disciplinary action will be discussed. Your Central Valley reports that Sandoval could face punishment from suspension to termination.

With Leana Wen Gone, Planned Parenthood’s Interim CEO Brings With Her a Religious Message: Abortion is for Christians, Too

Westlake Legal Group mother-84628_1280-620x413 With Leana Wen Gone, Planned Parenthood’s Interim CEO Brings With Her a Religious Message: Abortion is for Christians, Too Uncategorized transgender The Sexes the christian post Politics planned parenthood LifeNews LGBT LEANA wen healthcare Front Page Stories Featured Story eugene gu democrats Culture Congress Allow Media Exception alexis mcgill

 

 

Planned Parenthood’s Leana Wen was let go Tuesday after nearly a year as the abortion provider’s CEO.

During her tenure, she generated news stories such as these:

New Planned Parenthood President Says It’s ‘About Saving People’s Lives’

Planned Parenthood President Guests On Comedy Central, Brags Of Her New ‘Badge Of Honor’

Planned Parenthood President Offended ‘As A Mother’ By Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

Leading the charge for abortion, she tweeted things like this:

Now that she’s been pushed out, whats’ the status of the organization’s interim leader?

She’s a woman of faith.

In 2014, Alexis McGill took her message to the church.

She described herself to The Christian Post as a Christian who believes abortion is complicated issue rightfully managed between the woman, the doctor, and God:

“We all recognize that abortion and terminating a pregnancy is a very complicated decision, but that issue needs to be left to a woman, her doctor and her God, not a politician. I felt that it was a very insulting way of trying to suggest that we’re not capable of grappling with the implications of the decisions that we make.”

Also, keep those black abortions coming:

“I feel like [the pro-life campaign is] an assault on black women’s ability to make a decision. We’d have to talk about the conditions under which that is happening. Black women have less access to healthcare for a whole variety of reasons, and so trying to create those causal links are not always the easiest ways to understand really what’s underlying the challenges that black women are facing.”

Christian Alexis — who’s served, according to LifeNews, on the PP board of directors for “many years” — is sure to generate some compelling headlines of her own.

Concerning Leana — who appeared to perpetually take the position that abortion is all about healthcare rather than politics — there may be a particularly political reason she was ousted.

As reported by The Daily Wire:

Insiders note…that another factor that contributed to Wen’s departure was her lack of “trans-inclusive” language, believing that it would isolate moderates from supporting Planned Parenthood.

Is this a sign of the ubiquitous abortion giant slimmings its waistline, or will the new direction mean impregnated sales?

RedState’s Kira Davis noted on the 16th:

A recent Gallup poll revealed that a mere 25% of Americans support abortions under any circumstances. That puts into question the wisdom of advocating for things like partial birth abortion.

Kira included an interesting quote from Students for Life President Kristin Hawkins:

“The musical chairs at the top of the nation’s number one abortion vendor changes nothing. Women don’t need what Planned Parenthood is selling. Pregnancy is not a disease cured by abortion, and with federally qualified health centers standing by to offer true, full-service healthcare, women have lots of options that don’t include abortion.”

As for Leana’s lack of transgender inclusion, Alexis is primed for such a move. As we’ve already seen in the early Democratic debates, there’s support there. Julian Castro is wholly on board:

“And, you know, what that means is that just because a woman — or, let’s also not forget, someone in the trans community, a trans female — is poor doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the right to exercise that right to choose.”

And as I covered twice this week, so is bellowing anti-Trump doctor Eugene Gu:

It’s a new frontier. So get ready, Christians and men: Your abortions await.

“Trump Won This One”: House Dems Are Becoming Increasingly Frustrated With The Squad

Westlake Legal Group tlaib-omar-aoc-pressley-620x317 “Trump Won This One”: House Dems Are Becoming Increasingly Frustrated With The Squad washington D.C. The Squad republicans Politics North Carolina Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post elections donald trump democrats Culture Congress Campaigns AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 2020 Elections 2020

In this combination image from left; Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., July 10, 2019, Washington, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., March 12, 2019, in Washington, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY., July 12, 2019, in Washington, and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., July 10, 2019, in Washington. (AP Photo)

 

It’s official: “The Squad” of Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ayanna Pressley (MA), Ilhan Omar (MN), and Rashida Tlaib (MI) have more than worn out their welcome in the U.S. House. And it’s not just with Republicans, but with Democrats “from across the ideological spectrum”, too, according to a new report from CNN.

Jake Tapper and Dana Bash report:

…[S]ome Democratic lawmakers are quietly expressing concern that far-left progressives have outsized influence in their caucus.

Several Democrats — from across the ideological spectrum — are growing tired of the repeated headlines involving four progressive congresswomen as the caucus tries to push its agenda. In conversations that took place before the President hosted a rally in North Carolina Wednesday night where the crowds chanted “send her home” in reference to Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Democrats said they want to keep the spotlight on the issues that got them elected, not a fight with the President.

“The President’s words and actions speak for themselves. We need to focus on the issues that got (Democrats) here: jobs, health care … instead of the issues the President brings up deliberately,” said one House Democratic lawmaker, who asked for anonymity to speak freely. “Anything that takes away from bread-and-butter issues is playing into his hands.”

“The President won this one,” said another House Democratic lawmaker of the showdown. “What the President has done is politically brilliant. Pelosi was trying to marginalize these folks, and the President has now identified the entire party with them.”

[…]

“Less than two weeks ago when members of our caucus were trying to support funds for children at the border,” progressives were arguing that “we’re pro-putting kids in cages, we’re against human rights. So there’s frustration,” said another House Democrat.

Tapper posted a 12 tweet Twitter thread on the various issues with “The Squad” these frustrated House members vented to him about, which you can read here via Sarah at Twitchy.

In response to this story, Jim Geraghty asked why these House members were not willing to go on record:

If you’re a House Democrat, and you really think that the “Squad” keeps trying to steer the party away from bread-and-butter issues towards an extremist agenda, and that they’re anti-Semites, and a bunch of ingrates who demand loyalty but offer none in return. . . why are you anonymously complaining to Jake Tapper instead of saying so publicly and trying to marginalize what you obviously believe to be a malignant force within your party?

As an Average Jane Nobody who has dived into the comments of some of “The Squad’s” tweets in the past, I can tell you firsthand that having their supporters invade your mentions is not a fun experience. But I can only imagine what it would feel like to be a House Democrat who bravely goes on the record and risks the full-force wrath of The Squad targeting you and siccing their social media followers on you and staffers in your Congressional offices.

That said, even with the pressure to conform with the herd in the interest of showing a united front, if the issues these members have with the Queenie Quartet are that serious – especially as it relates to the anti-Semitic tendencies of Tlaib and Omar – they should be willing to go on record.

They might just find that their respective constituencies will appreciate it.

Anti-Semite Ilhan Omar Compares Jewish Israel to Nazi Germany

But do tell me more about the grave dangers of some randos chanting stupid crap at a Trump rally.

Ilhan Omar, apparently emboldened by recent events, decided it’d be a good idea to drop a resolution supporting the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction movement this week. That’d be the same BDS movement that even Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer directly called anti-Semitic just weeks ago.

While that would have been bad enough, she also decided it wasn’t insensitive and racist at all to use the resolution to compare Jewish Israel to (checks notes)…Nazi Germany.

This via the Washington Examiner.

Omar introduced a resolution Tuesday in support of groups wanting to boycott Israel while comparing them to the American Jews who boycotted Nazi Germany.

“Americans of conscience have a proud history of participating in boycotts to advocate for human rights abroad, including … boycotting Nazi Germany from March 1933 to October 1941 in response to the dehumanization of the Jewish people in the lead-up to the Holocaust,” the Minnesota Democrat’s resolution stated.

In the hearing, Omar also compared the boycotts of Israel to the Boston Tea Party.

Yes, that’s Omar directly comparing opposing Nazi Germany to opposing Jewish Israel, because they are pretty much the same thing right?

I mean, is there really a difference between a genocidial regime built on delusions of world domination and a small, democratic Jewish state that actually provides medical care for its adversaries and does everything it can to avoid collateral damage, even in the face of constant violent aggression? And it’s not like Nazi Germany sought to exterminate the Jews, necessitating the need for Israel.

Keep in mind, this is the same Ilhan Omar who called sanctions against a brutal dictator in Venezuela “bullying” and would lift sanctions on Iran tomorrow if she could. Yet, for some reason, her tactics toward Israel are different. Now, what could possibly be the distinction present driving her selectiveness in who she wants to boycott, divest, and sanction? Maybe some valiant media outlet should ask her.

This is blatant antisemitism on display. But no one outside of the right will care. The Democrats will excuse it, the media won’t even cover it, and the double standards will continue. If you care about people chanting at a Trump rally, you should care about Omar’s antisemitism.

If you don’t, you are being disingenuous and don’t deserve to have your outrage heard.

Video: Woman Assaults Catholic Priest Mid-Sermon

Westlake Legal Group Capture-7-620x375 Video: Woman Assaults Catholic Priest Mid-Sermon Violence priest News Media Front Page Stories Featured Story Father Marcelo Rossi Culture & Faith crime catholic Brazil assault Allow Media Exception

Catholic Priest and Grammy-nominated singer Father Marcelo Rossi has a massive following in Brazil with a congregation in the thousands, and while addressing his congregation on stage he was met with a mentally-ill LGBT activist who acted out violently.

According to the Daily Caller, Rossi was wrapping up a youth retreat in Cachoeira Paulista, Brazil. While addressing his young crowd, an unidentified 32-year-old woman, who reportedly traveled from Rio de Janeiro with her three-year-old to participate in the retreat, ran up and pushed the priest off the stage to the horror and screams of his congregation.

According to O Dia, a Brazillian media outlet, the woman suffers from bi-polar disorder. She had originally just wanted to speak with the priest, but claims that security guards were chasing her and sent her into a state of lost control.

“She said that she wanted to come in to talk to him and that she was scared the moment she saw the security guards running after her. It’s her version, but anyone who sees the pictures sees that there is none of it [security guards running after her]. She says she got scared and pushed him at a time when she kind of freaked out, lost control, but she had no intention [of hurting him], she just wanted to talk to him.”

She also added that what happened between her and the priest was “between [Rossi] and I.”

Rossi said that he does not intend to press charges on the woman, and hasn’t suffered any serious injuries.

Various reasons have been ginned up by outlets as to why the woman did this. Some reports claim that the preacher had just gotten done saying that fat women can’t get into Heaven, while other speculate that it’s because he had said homophobic things in the past. I can’t get confirmed reports of him saying either of these things, just claims.

As it stands, it just seems like a woman with a mental illness lost control and attacked a priest.

Allegations Regarding Omar’s Curious Marriage ARE Credible (That’s Why You Haven’t Heard Much About Them)

Westlake Legal Group ilhan-omar-pensive-620x317 Allegations Regarding Omar’s Curious Marriage ARE Credible (That’s Why You Haven’t Heard Much About Them) tax fraud immigration fraud Ilhan Omar Front Page Stories Featured Story ahmed nur said elmi 2020

Let me start by saying that credible allegations don’t mean proven allegations. It simply means there’s smoke. And with Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D), the allegations surrounding her first marriage are giving off so much smoke the media has apparently become blind.

When Trump made his statement to reporters Wednesday that Omar may have been married to her brother, he wasn’t just throwing bombs with no gunpowder. Journalists in her home state and PJ Media columnist David Steinberg have been tracking Omar’s inconsistencies when it comes to her first marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, her campaign finance violations, her tax fraud related to her first and second marriages, etc. for more than a year.

The link above is Steinberg’s archive of stories. Many are about Omar, but this one detailing school records is most compelling when it comes to the possible identity of her first husband.

According to official student enrollment records archived by St. Paul Public Schoolsand the state of Minnesota, an “Ahmed N. Elmi” was enrolled as a senior in the Class of 2003 at Arlington Senior High School in St. Paul, MN, from September 6, 2002, until June 10, 2003. He graduated and received a diploma.

The enrollment record states that “Ahmed N. Elmi” was born on April 4, 1985.

Both Ilhan Omar’s 2009 marriage documents and her 2017 divorce proceedings state that Ahmed Nur Said Elmi was born on April 4, 1985.

After an extensive background search, I have not been able to find any other person named “Ahmed Nur Said Elmi,” “Ahmed N. Elmi,” or even “Ahmed Elmi” with the birthdate April 4, 1985. The man Ilhan Omar married and the 17- to 18-year-old who attended Arlington Senior High School in St. Paul, MN, in 2002-2003 are one and the same.

The story of tax fraud related to her marriages — essentially alleging she continued to file tax returns with the father of her children, and now husband, while married to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi — and campaign finance violations were recently covered by the editorial board of her hometown paper here.

It is even more disturbing, therefore, to learn that among the board’s latest findings was a troubling discovery that is far beyond its jurisdiction, but worthy of greater scrutiny nevertheless. Omar, for two years running, filed joint tax returns with a man she was living with but not legally married to. Complicating matters further, she was legally married to another man at the time.

It’s against the law in Minnesota to file jointly unless one filer is legally married to the other. Last year Omar told the Star Tribune that she had married her partner “in her faith,” and had earlier divorced her first husband “in her faith.” That’s fine for religious purposes. But for tax purposes, only civil marriages qualify. It’s not known whether she benefited materially by filing jointly. That is something that voters, who are obliged to follow tax laws no matter how painful, are entitled to know.

When Trump mentioned her first marriage, he doubtless threw reporters into a tizzy of confusion because, while the rumors about Omar’s first marriage were certainly well known, communication professionals live by the rule that until something starts becoming accepted as credible, it’s best not to get ahead of it and appear conspiratorial (if one wants to be taken seriously that is).

But Politico reporter Eliana Johnson (thanks to the reporting of Steinberg and others giving her much to work with) bravely broke that dam open Wednesday by tweeting out the Star Tribune’s piece on Omar’s possible attempts at tax fraud and “legitimate questions” about her marriage (and it should be noted, the marriage looks, if it did occur, like it was for immigration purposes alone).

In short, nothing is proven but the questions are there and have been for some time. The reason you may not have heard much about them — and indeed why Trump’s statement Wednesday hasn’t been all over every major news outlet — is because there’s a lot of smoke there. And the media is terrified they might actually find a fire that’s been burning while they ignored the rising heat.

In Four Days, Trump Has Made ‘One Squad Under God’ The Face Of The Democratic Party

Westlake Legal Group Kanye-Trump-2-620x827 In Four Days, Trump Has Made ‘One Squad Under God’ The Face Of The Democratic Party Rush Limbaugh rashida tlaib President Trump Jake Tapper Ilhan Omar Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Congress Campaigns AOC Allow Media Exception 2020

 

Despite the Democrats’ indignation over his tweets on Sunday, the House vote on Tuesday to condemn him for his so-called racist comments about One Squad Under God, Wednesday’s House vote on whether or not to go ahead with impeachment and another vote to hold his Attorney General and Secretary of Commerce in criminal contempt of Congress, President Trump has driven a mack truck right through the heart of the Democratic Party. It seems there was a method to his madness after all. He has managed to make the gang of four the face of the Democratic Party.

Nobody’s feeling too sorry for any of the four radical, opportunistic, snot-nosed socialists who have taken control of the party. They forged ahead carelessly without bothering to first acquaint themselves with the ways of Washington believing that by sheer audacity, they could achieve their goals. Their reckless rhetoric, their bigoted statements, and their transparent lust for power have turned them into pretty unsympathetic characters. As Laura Ingraham said on her show last night, “you give the Squad an inch and they’ll take the country.”

These women made a big splash upon their arrival in Washington and I would argue that a large part of that was because of their race. It certainly wasn’t due to their oversized brains. Anxious to enact their agendas, they dove into the pool without checking the water temperature first.

And now, as they face criticism from Speaker Pelosi, President Trump and many Americans, they’ve turned race, which they’d previously used to their advantage, into a weapon.

Democrats have something new to be appalled about this morning. Trump was discussing Omar with his supporters at last night’s North Carolina rally, which by the way was one of his best ever, and said, “She looks down with contempt on the hard-working Americans saying that ignorance is pervasive in many parts of this country.” The crowd began chanting “Send her back.”

So what. Omar hates America. The U.S. is flawed certainly, but it’s still the greatest nation on earth. In the words of Victor Davis Hanson, America does not have to be perfect to be good (despite what radical progressives tell us). So, had I been at the rally, I would have joined them.

The national attention paid to these four has reached epic proportions. It’s become surreal. There are 431 other reps in the House.

CNN’s Jake Tapper spoke to several House Democrats, most of whom are far less radical than the Squad. He said they wished to remain anonymous so they could be candid.

House Dem 1 told Tapper, “The president won this one. What the president has done is politically brilliant. Pelosi was trying to marginalize these folks and the president has now identified the entire party with them.”

Tapper said, “House Democrats are conflicted about having to defend the Squad given things they’ve said and done. House Dems cited: talk of supporting challengers to incumbent Dems in primaries, AOC’s use of the term “concentration camps,” anti-Semitic comments by Tlaib and Omar.”

Tapper said that several House Dems brought up a resolution introduced by Omar and Tlaib to “affirm the right of Americans to boycott, perceived as an expression of support for the anti-Israel BDS (boycott, divest, and sanction) movement that most House Dems oppose.”

House Dem 2 spoke of the House leadership’s willingness to water down what should have been a personal reprimand of Omar’s anti-Semitic comments in March, to the point where it became a meaningless, generic resolution to condemn bigotry. Not even Omar’s bigotry, but all bigotry. He said, “We couldn’t even bring ourselves to have a resolution exclusively condemning anti-Semitism uttered by one of those members” — Omar — “but we leapt to their defense here.”

House Dem 3 recalls that “less than 2 weeks ago when members of our caucus were trying to support funds for children at the border,” the Squad was arguing that “we’re pro-putting kids in cages, we’re against human rights. So there’s frustration…I can’t tell you the number of members who are angry and annoyed about them criticizing us…AOC gives her chief of staff license to get candidates to run against her colleagues and to go after them on social media. It makes people’s skin crawl.”

House Dem 4 told Tapper, “We were there for them; they should stop attacking us.”

The frustration and resentment from these Democrats is unmistakable and it has to go somewhere.

On Monday, Rush Limbaugh discussed Trump’s Sunday tweets and he insisted it was a deliberate move. Many, including me, were skeptical.

Yesterday, Rush ran a victory lap. He told listeners:

What in fact he was doing was telling the American people who these four are ’cause the media isn’t gonna do it. He’s insulting them and drawing them out, making them respond. Then they start attacking Pelosi. Pelosi and Biden are racists, according to them. Trump is a racist. Everybody’s a racist. All you have to do to be one is disagree with them.

So Trump succeeds in creating the face of the Democrat Party in the image of these four women, these four freshmen.

Brilliant.

They’ve alienated their colleagues, as well as the majority of Americans. As the internal Democratic poll leaked to Axios last weekend indicated, these women aren’t popular to begin with. Nor is socialism. As voters learn more and more about them, their approval ratings will disintegrate entirely.

Not even the 2020 presidential candidates receive the amount of media attention these women. Trump has  thrust them into the spotlight (even more than before) and will let them do his work for him. All they have to do is open up their mouths.

In True Trump Style, the President Celebrates His Approval Swell by Thanking ‘Vicious Young Socialist Congresswomen’

Uncategorized socialism Rasmussen Poll Politics Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Congress AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 2020

 

 

A recent poll revealed an increase in Donald Trump’s approval rating.

Subsequently, being the gentleman he is, the President jotted a quick Thank You note Wednesday.

And it went a little somethin’ like this:

“New Poll: The Rasmussen Poll, one of the most accurate in predicting the 2016 election, has just announced that ‘Trump’ numbers have recently gone up by four points, to 50%. Thank you to the vicious young Socialist Congresswomen.”

He signed it thusly:

“America will never buy your act. #MAGA2020.”

This, of course, was just the latest entry in a battle between Trump and the Fab Four: Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and professional cowfart fighter Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, which began with a skirmish between the freshman crew and old-timer Nancy Pelosi. Nance socked it to the newbies and doubled down — ’cause “regrets is something [she doesn’t] do” (here).

As I covered on the 12th, Trump jumped in the ring in the midst of that one:

“I deal with Nancy Pelosi a lot and we go back and forth and it’s fine, but I think that a group of people is being very disrespectful to her.

“[Alexandria] should treat Nancy Pelosi with respect. She should not be doing what she’s doing.”

“[I]’ll tell you something about Nancy Pelosi that you know better than I do: She is not a racist, okay? She is not a racist. For them to call her a racist is a disgrace.”

It grew in intensity from there, with The Donald eventually tellin’ ’em to go back from whence they came — and some believe his rake was a genius move (here).

Whatever the case, the move wasn’t done.

Hence, “vicious young socialist congresswomen.”

His “go home” antics resulted in a passed House resolution condemning remarks deemed as “racist”…by the very damsel he was swooping in to save:

“These comments from the White House are disgraceful and disgusting and the comments are racist. Every single member of this institution, Democratic and Republican, should join us in condemning the president’s racist tweets. To do anything less would be a shocking rejection of our values and a shameful abdication of our oath of office to protect the American people.”

But does Trump care? Something tells me that’s a big fat No. The resolution is pomp. And he’s pompous. He’s gonna do and say as he believes.

Particularly toward the vicious, the socialist, and the congressional.

The SDNY Just Crushed One of the Left’s Biggest Dreams

The news cycle has been insane the past few days so this hasn’t gotten much press, but it’s a pretty big deal.

After the Mueller report failed to deliver the silver bullet against Trump, those obsessed with taking him out (because it’s not like we have an election next year or something) needed a new hope. It couldn’t just be over and rationality that perhaps Trump simply didn’t break any laws wasn’t entertained. Instead, the dream shifted to the SDNY.

Take this piece over at Newsweek.

Legal analyst and Above the Law editor Elie Mystal told MSNBC on Saturday said that if President Donald Trump isn’t reelected in 2020, he could be arrested immediately by the Southern District of New York (SDNY) when he leaves the White House.

During a segment on AM Joy, Mystal explained to host Joy Reid that the SDNY investigation has elevated the stakes for the president when it comes to winning the 2020 presidential election.

“The irony here, that I hope it is not lost on people, is that the Trump Organization, which appears to be a massive criminal front, is so small potatoes that if Trump hadn’t run for president, SDNY wouldn’t care,” he said. “SDNY cares about stopping terrorists.

“Putting SDNY on the Trump investigation is a little bit like bringing in Sherlock Holmes to figure out who framed Roger Rabbit,” Mystal continued. “These people are such cartoonish criminals that now that SDNY is on it, they’re all going down.”

Or this piece at NBC.

Cohen’s cooperation “would send a chill up my spine” if he worked at the White House, former New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie, who also was a federal prosecutor, told ABC News during the hearing, referring to the ex-Trump fixer’s statement to lawmakers that he was helping prosecutors in their Trump-related investigations.

Or this one from Bloomberg.

In the span of one week, we learned that the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York had both secured a guilty plea from Trump Organization lawyer Michael Cohen and offered an immunity deal to the company’s chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg. President Donald Trump should be worried. Once the Southern District gets its jaws onto a string of crimes, it doesn’t let go.

Weisselberg, as part of his deal, will likely be required to provide information on all criminal activity he knows about. That spells potential disaster for Trump personally, and major problems for his presidency. That’s apart from any potential state-level criminal investigation by the New York district attorney’s office.

You see, according to the media, the SDNY were pit-bulls. They were the career prosecutors free of scope limits and restraint. That was going to make all the difference. In fact, the real danger for Trump was never Robert Mueller’s investigation, no it’s always been the SDNY and they aren’t going to let this go. There were even #SDNY hashtags and T-shirts.

Well, so much for that. It was just announced yesterday that the SDNY’s investigation into the Trump organization and the Michael Cohen related “hush money” payments is over.

Judge William H. Pauley III announced that prosecutors in the Southern District of New York revealed this development to the court in a status report, as media companies including The New York Times, Associated Press, CNN, and Dow Jones & Co. have pushed to unseal the search warrant materials related to the case. The end of the investigation likely means no additional charges will be filed against anyone, including the president.

“We are pleased that the investigation surrounding these ridiculous campaign finance allegations is now closed,” Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow said in a statement. “We have maintained from the outset that the President never engaged in any campaign finance violation.”

And with that, the last great hope for the left to nail Trump on something criminal has breathed its last breath. There will be no Trump in handcuffs. The SDNY isn’t going to expose mountains of fraud within the Trump organization and Cohen will not be bringing anyone along with him to prison.

As an aside, I could write another entire piece about how this shows just how clueless our chattering class in the media actually are. The grand pronouncements on the cable networks, the scathing, faux intellectual editorials, and the confident claims on Twitter, all completely wrong. Again.

But I’m sure there’s some state investigation they’ll latch onto now as the “real” threat to Trump. It never stops and they never actually learn anything from their past failures.
