Nancy Pelosi has called illegal invaders entering our country unchecked "a gift of love". What President Trump, by proposing this change in immigration policy, is "reaching across the aisle" by giving the democrats what they want; a never ending flow of illegals into democrat controlled sanctuary cities (SF, Oakland, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, NYC, Philadelphia, etc, etc., etc.). This is a brilliant move by our President.

A very, very great idea. Force our politicians to own their talking point that there is "no crisis at the Southern border" by depositing any and all unscreened illegal invaders pouring into our nation on their cities doorsteps/front yards/back yards and sidewalks. I'm positive their constituents will welcome their new neighbors unconditionally and with open arms.
Also, end all federal funding because sanctuary cities violate federal law.

In looking at his expression, I imagine many thoughts rolled around in AG Barr's head, but he kept his cool and did not proceed to tell Sheehan how stupid she is. Gotta hand it to the man.
If it were me, I'd have cut loose with a tirade over spying. Guess that's why I work as a helicopter pilot and not a "lawyuh!" In aviation, we cannot afford to suffer fools . In the AG business, dealing with democrat buffoons in Congress is part of the job description.

An investigation which comes up with 30 plus (sic) arrests and or (sic) indictments could never be labelled a witch hunt -- comment
Question: And how many of those "30-plus arrests and/or indictments" were directly linked to Russian collusion and/or obstruction?
Answer: Zero, zip, nada.

Rep. Nita Lowey, the Democratic chairwoman of the House Appropriations Committee, said she was taken aback that Barr had reduced Mueller's report to a four-page letter in just two days. . . . "i would argue it's more suspicious than impressive," Lowey said. -- article
The chairwoman has a very short memory. Remember in late October 2016 when FBI Director Comey reopened the HRC email investigation after finding 100,000's of Hillary's emails on the laptop of "Carlos Danger", aka, Anthony Wiener? Only to close that investigation a mere two days later stating she was in the clear and could stand for election because nothing improper was found?
That, Rep. Lowery, is "more suspicious than impressive".

For the past six months when this blog site cut and pasted articles pertaining to U.S. immigration, my posts about how Nielsen was incompetent and needed to be removed as secretary of Homeland Security were routinely nuked because they were considered "off topic". Today, I am vindicated.
Now that she's gone, We need a brawler to replace her; someone with orders to step on the toes that need to be stepped on. McAleenan is the right man for the job.
The current passive approach the Uniparty demands is insane. The GOPe insists on bringing a cotton ball to a fight that requires a brick. As an Angel Parent, I detest today's linguine-spined, kowtowing to CoC lobbyists GOPe.

The 'rats attempt to get our President's tax returns is a violation of both federal law and the Constitution.
Besides, didn't Obama's IRS already process most of those returns? If there were any inconsistencies, you can rest assured they would have been leaked and passed along to the DNC's stenographers -- aka, the MSM -- long, long ago.
When this latest political Kubiki theater finally ends, the liberal tin foil hat conspiracists will be left once again stamping their feet while screaming helplessly at the sky.

If there was anything in Candidate Trump's tax records, the Uniparty spies within the IRS, FBI, CIA, DOJ, would have found and leaked it to the DNC's propaganda department during the campaign. When they came up with nothing, zip, nada, the pivot was made to the Russia, Russia, Russia Hoax "Insurance Policy".
This is just another 'rat fishing expedition/snipe hunt. When the dust settles, the far-Left lunatic base of the democrat party will once be left screaming helplessly at the sky.

Ever hear of the "emoluments clause"? - that's cause. -- comment
That provision is for lesser politicians (congressmen, senators, cabinet members, etc.) selling favors In exchange for moving up the political food chain. It doesn't pertain to President Trump because he is already at the top of the hill.

You are correct. Unlike the investigations in the 1970s and 1990s, Mueller was never tasked to search for a crime. As such, 6(e) is not pertinent. To call what he did an "investigation" is a misnomer. He should have looked into what had happened in the run up to November 2016 on both sides. He never did. His witch hunt was designed entirely to connect the President with either collusion (which is not a crime in this sense) or obstruction. He and his conga line of anti-Trump lawyers didn't find any because none existed (at least not on President Trump's side).
And just like on Election Night, the democrats have once again rolled snake eyes. So, now they pivot by making demands to see everything (legal and otherwise) tied to the report. AG Barr has the discretion to do so only if he wants to. He is not legally bound to honor/recognize any democrat-generated temper tantrum subpoenas

Correction to the 5:15 post: AG Barr represents the Executive Branch, not Judicial.

The AG needs to ignor any and all subpoenas from the democrats. There is nothing in the regulations where the one branch of our government (Judicial) is forced to adhere to anything from another branch of our government (Legislative); aka, the Separation of Powers provision.
AG Barr needs to tell them to go pound sand. If the democrats are sooo intent on that seeing "everything" connected to the report totally unredacted and to include -- but not limited to -- all Grand Jury testimonies, have them file a legal motion and let that motion wind its way through the courts where the Supreme Court will eventually render a ruling (probably in a year two) on this issue.

This idea being pushed by people that Barr and/or Trump are somehow "hiding something" is absurd.
Nah, the dems and member of their propaganda wing, the DNC-controlled Media Industrial Complex, spent the past 21-months assuring Americans that their living God, Mueller, had the goods on Orange Man Bad and sooner than later he would be wearing a prison jump suit to match his skin color. Now that that promise has blown up in their faces, they must gin up something . . . anything to convince the conspiracy theory tin foil hat constitutes within their voting base to stick with them.
-10 ( +0 / -10 )
The bigger question is if there are indeed things in the report that confirms obstruction or collusion by Orange Man Bad or any of those in his orbit, why hasn't Mueller or any one of his merry band of anti-Trump lawyers not done the rounds on all the Fake News outlets to tell what few remaining zombie-like walking dead readers/viewers they have, "No, no, we DID uncover impeachable crimes." Their silence speaks volumes.

As a registered independent voter here in Texas, I encourage the democrats to keep going down this futile path as it will keep making them look loonier by the day, (if that is even more possible) and will turn many of my fellow independents away from them going into the 2020 election.

The 5 stages of Kubler-Ross's progression in dealing with the apparent inexorability of a loss are:
Now that the Mueller report exonerates President Trump and his family, I don't expect liberals who have been nodding their heads in bovine agreement all the while being lied to by their moral superiors within their democrat party and the Media Industrial Complex for the past 21 months to ever get beyond Stage 2; they will skip over Stage 3 and go straight to Stage 4. It's also a sure bet they'll never reach Stage 5.
