    Cotton, Meadows Introduce Bill to Stop Judicial Injunction Abuse
    September 11, 2019

    https://www.cotton.senate.gov/?p=press_release&id=1204

    Washington, D.C. – Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) and Congressman Mark Meadows (R-North Carolina) today introduced the Nationwide Injunction Abuse Prevention Act, a bill to put an end to nationwide injunctions and prevent lawful policy changes from being blocked based on the activist agendas of individual, unaccountable district court judges.

    The bill follows a decision earlier this week by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California that reinstated a nationwide ban on enforcement of the Trump administration’s new asylum rules, defying a ruling from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that the district court’s nationwide injunction was overly broad. It should not require an often-lengthy appeals process to correct unlawful injunctions that should never have been issued in the first place. This legislation would restore the appropriate role of district court judges by prohibiting them from issuing nationwide injunctions broader than the parties to the case or the geographic boundaries of the federal district in which the judge presides. With the new change, lawful administration policy changes would no longer hinge on the opinion of one unelected judge.

    “Policy decisions ought to be made by elected representatives accountable to the American people, not activist judges with lifetime appointments. In the past few years, we’ve seen an explosion of activist forum shopping and nationwide injunctions to thwart the administration’s priorities and grind government to a halt. This bill will restore respect for the system of government outlined in the Constitution by limiting the use of nationwide injunctions by district court judges,” said Cotton.

          Trumpendous;
          Happens most often in the year or so runup to an election. Particularly used by the party in control, house or Senate, as they have control over whether bills make it to a vote.

          The object is to force the other party to vote an the,WRONG side of wedge issues, taking the unpopular (with majority of voters) position.

          Funny, in the runup to the midterms, we saw very little of this being done by Republicans, who controlled both houses, and could have beat the Democrats over the head, repeatedly,…but didn’t.

          Gee, I WONDER why?

    Loophole Used by 9/11 Hijackers Still Open with 6 Million Visa Overstays in U.S.

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/09/11/loophole-used-by-9-11-hijackers-still-open-with-6-million-visa-overstays-in-u-s/

    There are at least six million illegal aliens who arrived in the United States the same way seven of the 9/11 Islamic terrorist hijackers came to the country: by overstaying a visa.
    All 19 terrorists from 9/11 — who murdered nearly 3,000 Americans and injured more than 6,000 others in 2001 — arrived in the U.S. legally, with 16 obtaining tourist visas and three others obtaining business and student visas.

    In total, seven of the 19 terrorists overstayed their visas at some point either before the 9/11 attacks or at the time of the attacks and were supposed to be deported, but never were.

    Those terrorists who overstayed their visas include:

    Hani Hasan Hanjour from Saudi Arabia
    Nawaf al-Hamzi from Saudi Arabia
    Mohamed Atta from Egypt
    Satam al-Suqami from Saudi Arabia
    Waleed al-Shehri from Saudi Arabia
    Marwan al-Shehhi from the United Arab Emirates
    Ahmed al-Ghamdi from Saudi Arabia

    Eighteen years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the loophole where legal immigrants become illegal aliens after overstaying their visas remains fully open, with at least 4.5 to six million foreign nationals living in the U.S. who should have been deported after their visas expired, according to Pew Research Center.

    In total, there are roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the U.S. at any given moment, and more than 1.2 million foreign nationals are legally admitted to the country every year — like all 19 terrorists were.

        Bendix…Speaking of such…this article hit my inbox this morning. Not to be confused as ” light reading”, but extremely informative . Fully exposes the democrap hydra of non-profit…”slush funds”…and another part of the equation we are up against. Much of this new to me.

        The Left has a $500 Million Dark Money ‘ATM Machine’ Called Arabella
        https://darkmoneyatm.org/full-report/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_term=daily&utm_campaign=20190906arabella

        Conclusion
        Arabella Advisors may be one of the most powerful—and
        least known—influencers on the Left through its shadowy
        network of nonprofits: the New Venture Fund, Sixteen Thirty
        Fund, Hopewell Fund, and Windward Fund.
        Together, these groups form an interlocking network of
        “dark money” pop-up groups and other fiscally sponsored
        projects, all afloat in a half-billion-dollar ocean of cash.
        The real puppeteer, though, is Arabella Advisors, which has
        managed to largely conceal its role in coordinating so much
        of the professional Left’s infrastructure under a mask of
        “philanthropy.”
        To be fair, Arabella’s nonprofit network has given a modest
        share of its grants to nonprofits that practice genuine charity,
        such as various cancer research centers in California, Boston
        Medical Center, and similar organizations. In 2016, the New
        Venture Fund even gave a $50,000 grant to the right-leaning
        American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) for youth
        development and education.118 Genuine philanthropy is
        laudable and deserves recognition.
        Yet, however the company would like to frame its work,
        the bulk of its “philanthropy” remains better described as
        “deep advocacy”: nonprofit political activism hidden beneath
        numerous layers. Arabella Advisors may advertise its “strategic
        philanthropy” services, but the company and its four Funds
        should be seen for what they really are: a lobbying shop in
        charity’s clothing. Given that many of the groups managed
        by Arabella frequently call for transparency in the funding
        of campaigns and policy advocacy, they may first consider
        voluntarily disclosing their own funding sources. Why
        shouldn’t transparency begin at home

      What bothers me is that in 1989 the Chicom government just rode into Tiananmen Square and gunned down the protesters and they didn’t have anywhere near the power position in the world that they do now.

      The mainland has been massing police, paramilitary and PLA resources closer and more heavily concentrated on Hong Kong’s border for months as they ratchet up the warnings to the protesters. The ‘complaints’ from mainland officials have been coming from higher and higher levels of the Party and at some point something’s gotta give.

      I believe the Chinese could march in with force and while there’d be a big fluffup from various governments nothing substantive would result. There’re few countries out there that could/would confront China over it, especially in Asia were China’s co-opting a number of countries by moving manufacturing facilities to them. The US would make some noise but I do believe the Rats would use it to attack Trump and his tariffs by claiming his policies were heavily responsible for the social unrest in China. Wouldn’t be a hard sell as the media would fall all over itself helping and it would be right before an election.

      I’m wondering if there’s an internal battle in Beijing is between the hard-liners and more moderate forces regarding when to march in? Hard-liners won in ’89 and Xi’s seen his Chinese expansionist programs dialed back a bit, wondering if he’s ready to push that line to show the world China’s back?

        “They didn’t have anywhere near the power position in the world that they do now.” Not all power is that of the gun. There is diplomatic, intelligence, economic and perhaps a type of moral positional power. All Types of “soft power.” Of course China has grown into both a formidable economic and military regional hegemony. Still, for Xi to go into HK with guns a blazing and tanks and bombers….would be a huge political mistake both internally and on the international stage. Even a very controlled and limited take down of HK will be very costly for him and the Chinese powers that be. I think internally, he is facing a LOT more issues than the western press ever hears about.

          The Chinese have been mastering political and military power for a long,long time. People forget that before England broke it China was the world’s leading economic power for centuries. It was England who broke China as China had more economic power but lacked the military power to back it up.

          I don’t see China going in and doing great property damage, more like a graduated escalation of force. 1st the locals will say they don’t have the means as the rioters are increasing in numbers and aggression. The PRC will send in paramilitary and if that doesn’t work the ‘Hong Kong authorities’ will ask for more help and the military will come in. The entire process will have been gamed prior to execution, ‘counter revolutionary’ leaders will have been ID’d and probably dealt with before the bodies cross the border and the PRC will have liaison with principal foreign governments to give them a fig leaf to deal with an issue they don’t really want to deal with.

          There’s a rerason that military (and political) students study Sun Tzu as much, if not more, than they do von Clausewitz. The Chinese don’t move without a plan in place and don’t make the same mistake twice. Hong Kong will be better planned…that is, if the government even cares.

      Along these same lines I’m noticing/hearing from others an increase in physicians mentioning depression as a cause of your symptoms when you go to an appointment, especially a ‘wellness’ appointment.

      The AMA has been antigun for a long time now and pushes its members to work towards antigun policies with their patients. I’ve had docs ask me, as part of my wellness questionnaire, about whether I have firearms in my house. Answer there is a resounding ‘none yo bidnezz’. Generally following on the heels of that question is one about am I feeling depressed. The depression questions are government mandated but the gun questions aren’t, which leaves me wondering if we’re not seeing the groundwork laid by the Feds to mandate firearm ownership questions with the depression ones.

      The billing-based expansion of the ‘depression spectrum’ fits in nicely with the government’s red flag scheme, and I’m sure the red flag confiscation would apply to the household and not just the ‘targeted’ individual. After all, if your uncle Al who lives in an apartment over your garage, gets a depression diagnosis you can’t risk his accessing a firearm anywhere in the house so everyone who owns one gets his/hers confiscated. Now all you have to do to get them back is to kick Al to the curb or get a doctor to certify, to his potential liability, that Al is ‘cured’ – yeah, try that.

      It’s interesting how the depression business is spinning up, I had a doc absentmindedly suggest depression as a diagnosis for why my activity level had dropped. He was just spitting out stuff that might lead to a possible up-coding of the office visit until I mentioned to him that if he actually read my file he’d see that three blown discs and a stenosis was the reason. He apologized, saying he was distracted.

      Your digitalized medical information can be scanned by the government ‘anonymously’ for ‘statistical’ purposes,your diagnosis and treatment is reported in standard codes. My question is how long will it be before the government starts scanning for particular codes? According to a 2012 report in the Journal of Clinical Psychology:

      “This study conclusively demonstrates that unfounded fear of government is a recognizable mental illness, closely related to paranoid schizophrenia. Anti-Government Phobia (AGP) differs from most mental illnesses, however, in that it is highly infectious and has an acute onset. Symptoms include extreme suspiciousness, conspiracy-mongering, delusional thought patterns, staunch “us against them” mentality, withdrawal from reality, and often religious fanaticism.”

      Yeah, we gotta code for that…start scanning, Lt Chekov.

      McCabe appealed to DAG Rosen (Not DAG Rosenstein). We’re learning that Liu recommended charges, McCabe appealed to Rosen, who rejected the appeal.

      This means that the DOJ has cleared way for indicting McCabe.

      This is not SpyGate related – just related to his lying to federal agents.

      I think they’re just going to put his almonds in a vice to try to extract cooperation for Durham.

      Team Trump could’ve exposed all of this long ago but they didn’t for a good reason.

      Is the time rigth now? Almost.. a little bit more patience if you didn’t loose it after the first hyped IG report years ago..

        It’s my opinion, my speculation, my guess a lot of that goes on here at CTH in case you didn’t know that. It’s not slander. I’m not trying to ruin her reputation. I couldn’t do that if I wanted to. I’m not an attorney and few people here even read my posts so I think her reputation is safe from my opinion. If you have factual evidence that she did recommend McCabe for prosecution then post it. I could have easily missed that. Till proven that she did recommend McCabe for prosecution I’ll keep my current opinion. Thanks for your comment!

      Untrustworthy “Deep State Leaks”. They “classify” internal records, and refuse to provide them to Congress, Judicial Watch, and defendants in politically-inspired criminal cases the FBI/DunJ is prosecuting. But “leak” self-serving BS. Sure…..

      Next, there will be “leaks” that Jessie Liu wanted to throw the book at the Awans, and Wolfe-and-his-mistress, but was overruled…… Sure….

    I watched the Cruz meeting with Alyssa Milano and the other two participants, where she said she owns two guns for self defense. Hahahahahahahahaha
    I am having some kind of mean-girl self-shaming episode because it seems really catty of me to say she was “acting” with her “opening statement”, the tears, and like a good liberal, always, always, use the children for manipulation to get what you want.

    I am glad he had the meeting. It would be nice if had any influence on her, but I am afraid she is too far lost in maintaining her image to ever listen or realize that giving up an inch of rights automatically means liberals will take a mile.

      Alyssa struck me as a lost soul, a bit confused but trying to do “the right thing.” But I get the impression that she is much too weak (mentally and emotionally) to break out of her thought patterns.

      Yup, I’ve seen it reported in several places. Maybe all the negative opinion expressed about Liu had an effect on her—she’s trying to show she’s not “deep state” after all. In any case a great development if McCabe is indicted.

          I imagine she read the handwriting on the wall. IOW if she continued to obstruct justice in such obvious, if high-profile, cases she risked drawing attention of the President himself. That opens the real possibility of being fired for non-performance. My guess anyway about Ms. Lui’s calculus.

    New Docs Show DOJ Effort to Craft ‘Non Denial Denial’ Response to Reports on Rosenstein Wearing a Wire to Record Trump

    It is remarkable that Judicial Watch has done more to investigate the DOJ/FBI’s discussions about overthrowing President Trump than the DOJ or Congress,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These documents essentially confirm the coup discussions about wearing a wire when speaking with President Trump and plans to remove him under the 25th Amendment.”

      I contribute to Judicial Watch. Everyone should. They do more for the country than IG Horowitz or the so-called Congress which doesn’t even ask the necessary questions, much less get the answers.

      So, did Rosenstein “wear a wire”? Did mewler record PDJT with his phone (which he “forgot” and left in the White house?) Where are the recordings. Who are the cabinet members who were contacted, or were being nurtured to remove PDJT? Who were ALL of the plotters, what were their roles, were any congresscritters involved or aware, and who funded/inspired/directed/collaborated with them?

    A hopeful anecdote. Yesterday, I was at a CrossCountry race for the Philadelphia Catholic League. I was standing near a very Irish looking Dad wearing a tee-shirt emblazoned with a bold “Buy Union Buy American” on the back – hardly a remarkable sight at Philly Catholic high school sporting events. He was talking with another dad and saying he was from Havertown, which is exactly where I’d have guessed he was from. And from there the conversation proceeded with what seemed like typical Catholic Dad talk, and not worth my trouble eavesdropping. 😉 BUT then, I overheard a remarkable thing: This man, wearing the union shirt, said that the Democrats were shipping all their jobs overseas. Look at how Havertown voted in 2016: http://election.co.delaware.pa.us/eb/November_2016/Official/22.html

      Well, hopefully that translates to votes. But, I have heard many Democrats pretend they are sensible – only to vote straight Democrat time after time. They usually have last minute quibbles with things of no consequence that “forces” them to vote Democrat once again.

    U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu has recommended moving forward with charges against Andrew McCabe, Fox News has learned, as the Justice Department rejects a last-ditch appeal from the former top FBI official.

    McCabe — the former deputy and acting director of the FBI — appealed the decision of the U.S. attorney for Washington all the way up to Jeffrey Rosen, the deputy attorney general, but he rejected that request, according to a person familiar with the situation.

    NADLER’S CONDUCT, POSES A MASSIVE WASTE OF TIME, FOR OUR DEMOCRACY!

    JUST IN: House Judiciary Committee Approves Procedures For Impeachment Probe
    Cristina Laila by Cristina Laila September 12, 2019

    The House Judiciary Committee chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) on Thursday approved procedures for an impeachment investigation into President Trump.

    Some call this process an impeachment inquiry. Some call it an impeachment investigation. There is no legal difference between these terms, and I no longer care to argue about the nomenclature” Nadler said as he opened the meeting. But let me clear up any remaining doubt: The conduct under investigation poses a threat to our democracy. We have an obligation to respond to this threat. And we are doing so.

    The resolution before us represents the necessary next step in our investigation of corruption, obstruction and abuse of power,” Nadler said.

    Nadler held a presser on Thursday where he asserted that the impeachment investigation will go “well beyond the four corners of the Mueller report.”

    With these new procedures, we will begin next week an aggressive series of hearings, investigating allegations of corruption, obstruction, and abuse of power against the president. The investigation will go well beyond the four corners of the Mueller report,” Nadler told reporters.

    Trump’s crimes and corruption extend beyond what is detailed in the Mueller report,” Nadler said earlier this week. “The President is in violation of the emoluments clauses of the Constitution as he works to enrich himself, putting the safety and security of our Nation at risk. He has dangled pardons, been involved in campaign finance violations and stonewalled Congress across the board, noting that he will defy all subpoenas.

    It was recently reported that Nadler is investigating Trump’s role in the ‘hush payments’ made to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal during the 2016 election.

    Nadler also said that his committee will be holding hearings this Fall related to the issue of pardons over a joke Trump made about pardoning DHS officials, according to Politico.

    [No name copied] So if you shut down a great nation’s (e.g. the USA’s) industrial base and relocate it to China, eliminating most of the working class of jobs, then let in an unlimited stream of immigrants, you’ll create an enormous oversupply of labor and drive down wages for the poorest 90% of the population. Surprise!
