Bernie Sanders Jumps the Shark on Border Enforcement

Westlake Legal Group bernie Bernie Sanders Jumps the Shark on Border Enforcement Politics open borders Illegal Immigration Ice HHS Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats Crazy CPB Bernie Sanders

The 2020 Democratic primary has devolved into insanity, or perhaps it started off that way? We’ve seen the delusional, dictatorial rantings of people like Beto O’Rourke on guns and Kamala Harris on plastic straws. There’s essentially no level of crazy these people aren’t willing to go to in order to pander to the radical left.

Of course, Bernie Sanders has been doing that his entire life, so it’s no surprise when he keeps the train rolling.

Enter the latest bright idea from a guy so intellectually worthless that he got fired from a commune.

While speaking before a left-wing Latino audience, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders pledged to end immigration raids and impose a “moratorium” on all deportations.

“We are going to end the ICE raids that are terrorizing communities all across this country,” Sanders said Saturday in Las Vegas, according to footage flagged by the Republican National Committee. “We are going to impose a moratorium on deportations. And we are going to, as I mentioned — and there are some things that a president can do with executive orders and some things you can’t.”

A moratorium on deportations, eh? Sounds legit. I mean, it’s not like ICE needs to ability to deport criminals who would otherwise remain here committing more crimes, right? This is a level of shark jumping levels not seen since the Fonz took the water that fateful day. It’s like saying let’s close all prisons or stop enforcing all non-violent penal statues (well, Joe Biden did kind of say that).

Even past the rule of law issues, which stand tall on their own, the impracticality of it all sticks out like a sore thumb. Our system is already overloaded. Now, Bernie wants to tell HHS that no one can be deported? Where will they live? Who will pay for them? Never mind that such an action would result in a massive influx of dangerous, un-vetted illegal immigration. The border has just now started to calm down and Bernie wants to fling the door open again and give away free cocktails on the way in. Think of how much that would benefit the cartels and how many women and children would lose their lives with such a policy.

Democrats are going to calling for seizing citizen’s homes to house illegal immigrants pretty soon. I mean, what’s the next logical escalation of their craziness? They already want to give out free healthcare and college. What about free cars? Free phones? It’s as if money has no finite value.

Let’s be real though. This is actually about simply releasing illegal immigrants into the general population with no accountability. Damage to them or others be damned. The Democrats are playing an incredibly dangerous and cynical game. In a saner political environment, they’d be mercilessly mocked for such ideas. Instead, they are lauded by our media. But these are the stakes in 2020 and why seeing that a Democrat isn’t elected is so important.

MSNBC Panelist Says He Constantly Fantasizes About Crashing His Car into Trump Plaza. Maybe He’s Waiting for the 1,000-Year Reich

Westlake Legal Group car-accident-337764_1280-620x349 MSNBC Panelist Says He Constantly Fantasizes About Crashing His Car into Trump Plaza. Maybe He’s Waiting for the 1,000-Year Reich Uncategorized Trump Plaza New York MSNBC media bias Media Front Page Stories Featured Story fake news elie mystal donald trump democrats Culture crime Allow Media Exception

 

 

Everyone has a fantasy or two.

For an MSNBC panelist, it’s driving his car straight into Trump Plaza.

And that’s the news.

Here’s more about fantasies: Elie Mystal, executive editor of Above the Law, tweeted Wednesday morning about his dreamy would-be car crash, along with an article about an actual Trump Plaza auto accident that resulted in several people being injured Tuesday night.

It’s a fantasy, but the talk is real:

“Real talk: When you come out of the parking lot of this mall/movie theater, you have to sit a red light staring right into this lobby.
I’ve thought about driving my car through it EVERY TIME. Basic humanity keeps me from doing it, but JUST.”

Elie noted that the “the view in this picture is exactly the view you have from the stop light.”

And that light, according to the aspiring felon/potential vehicular manslaughterer, is “long.”

He also theorized that Tuesday’s crash — which was determined by police to be an accident — was intentional.

Or MAYBE that’s his own bias:

“Anyway, innocent until proven guilty but…’accident’ doesn’t seem likely to me. Maybe that’s my own bias.”

The guy ain’t your average schmo — he’s one of them people that knows a lot:

“Defense counsel should NOT put me on this guy’s jury, I know too much :).”

He knows so much that last October, he told America that Bret Kavanaugh’s confirmation may result in a Thousand-Year Reich.

I’ll say that once more: the confirmation of a conservative judge was possibly going to initialize a Thousand-Year Reich.

That, from the guy who knows stuff.

The guy who drives by Trump Tower every day.

The guy who’s dreaming of crashing his car into a building full of people.

The guy MSNBC believes is the right person to have on.

Want more? Presto–

From the Washington Examiner:

MSNBC guest Elie Mystal, who is the executive editor of AboveTheLaw.com, advocated for nonwhite voters to mobilize to defeat President Trump in the 2020 presidential election, saying “you do not negotiate with” with his white supporters.

Host Joy Reid had asked the panel on Sunday how someone talks to a person who is “drugged by” their support for Trump.

“You don’t communicate it to them — you beat them. You beat them,” Mystal said. “They are not a majority of this country. The majority of white people in this country are not a majority of the country. And all the people who are not fooled by this need to come together, go to the polls, go to the protests, do whatever you have to do. You do not negotiate with these people, you destroy them.”

And from RedState’s Elizabeth Vaughn:

In a Thursday night appearance on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes,” contributor and legal blog editor Elie Mystal had some fiery words for Equinox and SoulCycle chairman Stephen Ross.

Ross is hosting a fundraiser for President Trump at his home in Southampton, NY this weekend and Mystal has called for protestors to show up outside his home with “pitchforks and torches.”

Apparently, the recent boycotts of Ross’ businesses didn’t go far enough for Mystal. He said:

“People of color are already targets under this administration. I have no problem on shining the light back on the donors who fund this kind of racialized hate. I mean I go further. I want pitchforks and torches outside this man’s house in the Hamptons.

Nice job, Peacock.

Writer Behind NYT’s Kavanaugh Smear Finds the True Culprit Behind the Outrage: Fox News (Because of Course)

Westlake Legal Group brett-kavanaugh-hearing-SCREENSHOT-620x394 Writer Behind NYT’s Kavanaugh Smear Finds the True Culprit Behind the Outrage: Fox News (Because of Course) Supreme Court Social Media SCOTUS Robin Pogrebin Politics NY Times North Carolina New York Times Media Judicial journalism It Is Okay To Laugh Front Page Stories Front Page fox news Featured Story Featured Post democrats Culture Courts Brett Kavanaugh Allow Media Exception

When last we left you, New York Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly were blaming the paper’s editorial staff for cutting out a crucial section of their weekend hit piece on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Pogrebin and Kelly have insisted that they included the exculpatory information which noted that the alleged victim of an alleged sexual assault by Kavanaugh has no recollection of it happening. The authors also allege that somehow during the editing process that information was was innocently removed.

Few people are buying it, which is quite possibly why Pogrebin shifted gears on the Twitter machine earlier today by pulling a tactic straight out of the leftist playbook: When all else fails, blame Fox News.

Here’s what Pogrebin tweeted:

Vox’s leading Democratic party shill Aaron Rupar asserted in the piece that Fox News has misleadingly “described changes the New York Times made to Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly’s story as a ‘correction’ at least a dozen times.”

Rupar then states that “there’s just one problem — the Times did not, in fact, ‘correct’ anything. To make a ‘correction’ to a story indicates something was factually wrong.”

The problem with Rupar’s piece and Pogrebin retweeting it is that Pogrebin herself has used the term “corrected” to describe the paper taking action to add the information to the story (h/t: Twitchy):

And as Jeryl Bier notes, by Vox’s own standards they label fixing the omission of relevant information from a news story as a … correction:

Regardless of how Pogrebin and Vox labeled the Times’ corrective actions, the whole debate is weak sauce, and a pathetic attempt at shifting the blame elsewhere for failures that can ultimately only be pinned on the two people who wrote the original piece and those who “proofed” it before it went to press:

Pogrebin and Kelly have shown no shame when it comes to the pretzels they twist themselves into to avoid blame for what happened. So their critics should, in turn, shown no mercy in their constructive criticisms. Fair is fair.

Trump Administration Revokes California’s Ability to Set Fuel Efficiency Standards For the Rest of the Nation

Westlake Legal Group california-freeway-cars-by-joe-wolf-620x358 Trump Administration Revokes California’s Ability to Set Fuel Efficiency Standards For the Rest of the Nation republicans Politics massachusetts vs epa greenhouse gas Front Page Stories Featured Story EPA environment donald trump democrats Clean Air Act California CAFE Standards Allow Media Exception

Since 1968, California has enjoyed a specific carve-out of regulatory authority under the Clean Air Act. According to the law, no state can set emissions standards in excess of federal standards except for California. This special authority was given in recognition of California’s role as a leader in limiting auto emissions and the unique smog problem facing Los Angeles at the time. (Read the history here even if the total argument is progressive nutbaggery.)

What has happened is that California is in the thrall of the climate change goober community and has set emission standards to, in their benighted view, deal with that problem. This is something not contemplated by the law. The practical effect is that California is able to set vehicle emissions standards for the entire nature by virtue of the size of the California auto market. Essentially, this lets California make law for the entire nation and it has reinforced its position by creating an unlawful interstate compact, the so-called “Section 177 states” of Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington and the District of Columbia, who follow California’s lead on auto emissions.

There has been a lengthy negotiation period in which the Trump administration has attempted to negotiate with California a freeze on CAFE standards for cars and light trucks at 30 mpg rather than staying on a guide slope to require 54.5 mpg as the fleet standard. But it has gone nowhere:

There appears to have been very little movement in the negotiations since they began almost a year ago, and both sides on Thursday accused the other of negotiating in bad faith.

“Despite the administration’s best efforts to reach a common-sense solution, it is time to acknowledge that CARB has failed to put forward a productive alternative,” a White House statement said, referring to the California Air Resources Board, the state’s clean air regulator. “Accordingly, the administration is moving forward to finalize a rule later this year with the goal of promoting safer, cleaner and more affordable vehicles.”

Stanley Young, a spokesman for the air resources board, said meetings between the sides had been held but “were always at a superficial level, with no effort to engage in a conversation.”

Mandy Gunasekara, who served as principal deputy assistant administrator in the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Air and Radiation before leaving this month to start a private consulting business, and who was involved in the talks, said that California had put forward only one counterproposal: a plan to delay implementation of the fuel economy rules by one year. Trump officials saw that as a nonstarter.

“Looking at it now, it seems they were more interested in stalling the progress of the conversation than actually working to make a deal,” Ms. Gunasekara said.

Earlier today, President Trump announced that the administration would grant no further waivers.

This sets up a nasty and lengthy legal battle. The burden is on the EPA to show that:

  • California was arbitrary and capricious in its finding that its standards are, in the aggregate, at least as protective of public health and welfare as applicable federal standards;
  • California does not need such standards to meet compelling and extraordinary conditions; or
  • such standards and accompanying enforcement procedures are not consistent with Section202(a) of the Clean Air Act.

I don’t know how well the administration has done its homework here. It also is looking at an adverse Supreme Court ruling Massachusetts vs EPA where the EPA was required to regulate carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas and opined that states have a greater role in making these decisions because they are sovereign entities (kind of funny watching Souter, Ginsberg, and Breyer agreeing that states were anything but federal fiefdoms). In that case, Roberts issued a major dissent, so that case may or may not be a factor.

My gut is that if Trump is reelected, the waiver revocation sticks. If he doesn’t win, the case will be dropped and some kind of consent decree tossed in to make it exponentially harder for the next Republican president to try it.

A New York Shootout with a Career Criminal Ends with Onlookers Shouting Death to the Cops. How Did We Get Here?

Westlake Legal Group nypd-780387_1280-620x414 A New York Shootout with a Career Criminal Ends with Onlookers Shouting Death to the Cops. How Did We Get Here? Uncategorized police brutality law enforcement law Front Page Stories Featured Story Culture crime anti-police Allow Media Exception

 

 

On Tuesday in The Big Apple, cops got in a shootout with a career criminal following a call of domestic assault.

When all was said and done, an officer had been shot in the hand, the assailant was dead, and witnesses were shouting death to law enforcement.

According to The New York Post, some yelled, “Get the **** out of here,” while one man belted out…let’s say…a request for oral gratification.

There was also “All of y’all can die! I hope that happens!”

The man who was killed had been arrested 16 times. He was initially tased but still managed to fire at police.

As for the expressed wishes for cop casualties, a law enforcement source told the Post it’s no new experience:

“You hear this more and more. The public just has no respect for cops. All they want to do is fight cops. It never used to be that way.”

The source blamed the cultural shift on Mayor Bill de Blasio, who in June, characterized ICE as a weapon out to get NYC residents in the country illegally:

But the source believes it began much earlier.

From The Daily Wire:

“It all started with de Blasio. He’s the one to blame for the way the public treats cops,” citing the 2014 ambush slayings of Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos. A third source echoed, “Are you surprised? Somebody’s shooting at a police officer and nobody cares. … They’re more concerned about the perp than the cop who’s there to protect them. You call the police to do a job, a cop gets shot, but they’re upset that a guy who was shooting a cop is dead.”

In 2015, after the ambush murders of Liu and Ramos, at the service honoring them, dozens of New York City police officers turned their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio.

And that wasn’t the only time. During the funeral for assassinated officer and mom of three Miosotis Familia, hundreds of the NYPD turned their backs to Mayor Bill.

The parolee who shot her in the head as she sat in a marked vehicle with her partner was known for making anti-cop threats on social media.

It definitely says a lot when onlookers curse the cops instead of the criminal. It’s a shift, possibly due to past wrongs on multiple sides — broadcasted incidents such as this certainly don’t help things.

Any and all of those are wrongs which need to be made right.

Putting aside this particular incident — about which we can’t be sure of the details — what do you think has caused such an overall change?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Trump Bulldozes “Dummy” Beto’s Gun Confiscation Plan, Lays Down Some Inconvenient Truths for Democrats

After a growing number of Democrats in recent days have criticized Beto O’Rourke’s gun confiscation plan as unhelpful and unrealistic, President Trump took his turn at the Twitter microphone this morning and delivered some inconvenient truths of his own to the struggling presidential candidate and his party.

Here’s what the President tweeted:

Trump was responding to remarks O’Rourke made at last Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate where he said “Hell yes” in response to ABC News debate moderator David Muir’s question about whether or not he was going to take away people’s guns if elected president:

MUIR: Some of the stage have suggested a voluntary buy-back for guns in this country. You have gone further. You said, quote, “Americans who own AR-15s and AK-47s will have to sell them to the government, all of them. You know that critics call this confiscation. Are you proposing taking away their guns and how would this work?

BETO O’ROURKE: I am, if it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield. If the high impact, high velocity, when it hits your body, shreds everything inside of your body because it was designed to do that so you would bleed to death on a battlefield and not be able to get up and kill one of our soldiers. When we see that being used against children and in Odessa, I met the mother of a 15-year-old girl who was shot by an AR-15 and that mother watched her bleed to death over the course of an hour because so many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa, there weren’t enough ambulances to get to them in time. Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against a fellow American anymore.

As of this writing “Dummy Beto” is still trending on Twitter:

The failed Senate candidate replied by doubling down on his call to “buy back” all “assault weapons”, and accusing Trump of “cowardice”:

Beto can say Trump is a “coward” on this issue all day long but it doesn’t change the fact that Trump is right.

What Beto declared at the debate confirms the worst fears of gun rights groups and other 2nd Amendment defenders who have warned for years that Democratic efforts at gun control were part of a “step-by-step process” to eventually take away guns. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) explained this well on Thursday when asked about universal background checks:

“When you really understand what the endgame of the left is, it’s literally mandatory buybacks or as I call it: confiscation. This is a step-by-step process for them,” Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) told The Hill Thursday when asked about the debate over expanded background checks for firearms sales.

Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE), who has been working with Republican Senators on a compromise bill, said last Friday on CNN that O’Rourke’s statement at the debate “will be played for years at Second Amendment rallies with organizations that try to scare people by saying Democrats are coming for your guns.”

To make matters worse for Democrats, O’Rourke is not the only presidential candidate calling for mandatory gun confiscation. Sens. Kamala Harris (CA) and Cory Booker (NJ), whose campaigns are going nowhere but who have nevertheless both been floated as vice presidential possibilities, have endorsed his plan.

If Beto was a wise man he would have never jumped on board the gun grabbing train and instead offered up some constitutionally sound common sense solutions that most Americans (including his fellow Texans) could get behind. But after the horrific El Paso mass shooting, he has been operating solely on emotion and anger on this issue, which is precisely why he belongs nowhere near the White House.

Because as I’ve written before, no matter how passionate, emotional, and personal an issue may be to a candidate, an unconstitutional plan is still unconstitutional.

You said, quote, “Americans who own AR-15s and AK-47s will have to sell them to the government, all of them. You know that critics call this confiscation. Are you proposing taking away their guns and how would this work?

BETO O’ROURKE: I am, if it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield. If the high impact, high velocity, when it hits your body, shreds everything inside of your body because it was designed to do that so you would bleed to death on a battlefield and not be able to get up and kill one of our soldiers. When we see that being used against children and in Odessa, I met the mother of a 15-year-old girl who was shot by an AR-15 and that mother watched her bleed to death over the course of an hour because so many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa, there weren’t enough ambulances to get to them in time. Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against a fellow American anymore.

As of this writing “Dummy Beto” is still trending on Twitter:

The failed Senate candidate replied by doubling down on his call to “buy back” all “assault weapons”, and accusing Trump of “cowardice”:

Beto can say Trump is a “coward” on this issue all day long but it doesn’t change the fact that Trump is right.

What Beto declared at the debate confirms the worst fears of gun rights groups and other 2nd Amendment defenders who have warned for years that Democratic efforts at gun control were part of a “step-by-step process” to eventually take away guns. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) explained this well on Thursday when asked about universal background checks:

“When you really understand what the endgame of the left is, it’s literally mandatory buybacks or as I call it: confiscation. This is a step-by-step process for them,” Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) told The Hill Thursday when asked about the debate over expanded background checks for firearms sales.

Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE), who has been working with Republican Senators on a compromise bill, said last Friday on CNN that O’Rourke’s statement at the debate “will be played for years at Second Amendment rallies with organizations that try to scare people by saying Democrats are coming for your guns.”

To make matters worse for Democrats, O’Rourke is not the only presidential candidate calling for mandatory gun confiscation. Sens. Kamala Harris (CA) and Cory Booker (NJ), whose campaigns are going nowhere but who have nevertheless both been floated as vice presidential possibilities, have endorsed his plan.

If Beto was a wise man he would have never jumped on board the gun grabbing train and instead offered up some constitutionally sound common sense solutions that most Americans (including his fellow Texans) could get behind. But after the horrific El Paso mass shooting, he has been operating solely on emotion and anger on this issue, which is precisely why he belongs nowhere near the White House.

Because as I’ve written before, no matter how passionate, emotional, and personal an issue may be to a candidate, an unconstitutional plan is still unconstitutional.

After a growing number of Democrats in recent days have criticized Beto O’Rourke’s gun confiscation plan as unhelpful and unrealistic, President Trump took his turn at the Twitter microphone this morning and delivered some inconvenient truths of his own to the struggling presidential candidate and his party.

Here’s what the President tweeted:

If someone were particularly critical of Beto O’Rourke, and if they were intent upon expressing it, they may say something similar to, “The painfully clueless goofball seemingly unaware of how to come across like a normal person has made a complete fool of himself over and over and over.”

The may also provide examples such as…

But they might not.

Either way, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick had something to say Tuesday about the anti-privileged-millionaire privileged millionaire.

Following Beto’s most recent move — a promise to steal America’s most popular hunting rifle from its citizens — Dan released a statement:

“When I heard Beto’s now infamous statement in the debate last week – ‘hell yes we are going to take your AR-15’s and your AK-47’s…’ My first thought was, thank God he lost to Ted Cruz. Because the Texas press never asked him any serious questions in that race, it wasn’t clear until now what a radical left-winger he is – the most radical of all the looney leftists and socialists currently running for president.”

Looney!

In Dan’s view, Beto’s idioted his way right out of politics:

“My second thought was he will never be a threat to Texas politics again. He’s stuck in tiny single digits in the polls, so he’s not going to be president, but now the Democrats can’t even put him on the ticket with the hope that he will help win Texas. He’s a gun confiscator – he’s done in our state.”

That sounds about right — Texans aren’t known for their desire to have their firearms stolen by a guy who plays punk rock in a sheep mask and white onesie:

Yeah — that ain’t Texas.

How can someone be so breathtakingly tone deaf?

Perhaps his race against Ted served to embolden his more rock ‘n’ roll sensibilities — he came within striking distance of Ted’s victory.

Or maybe, as former Republican Govern John Sununu recently asserted, it’s merely the rashness of despair:

“He really is desperate at this point and will say just about anything to get a headline.”

Hence, you get these:

Dan dug into Beto’s fashion line:

“Now he’s selling T-shirts with his ‘hell yes’ statement – another flailing attempt to hide his naked ambition and distract from his doomed campaign.”

Dang!

“Beto says he has talked to people in Texas who own AR-15s and they support his confiscation plan – so he found some liberal who agrees with him. It’s a big state, but the people I talk to don’t want to give up their guns. They know it is the evil intentions of a shooter, not the gun that is a threat to our safety.”

The lieutenant governor also pointed out something I haven’t seen much mentioned, which is — I think — a profound point: The term “buyback” is nonsensical.

“I will never support banning the AR-15s, AK-47s, or a phony buyback program – the government can’t buy back something they have never owned.”

Beto’s idea of government, so far as Dan is concerned, is exceedingly turdish:

“This is what our Second Amendment rights are about — making sure the government can never take away our guns.”

Will Beto ride it out into 2020? How much longer do you expect him to stay in the race? I wanna hear from you in the Comments section.
