Senate Judiciary Committee Passes Unconstitutional “Protect Mueller” Bill

This isn’t about protecting the integrity of an investigation that long-ago jumped the rails of its original charge to investigate the non-existent collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians. It is merely a Democratic campaign tactic to send a message that the Senate is willing to stand up to President Trump.

The Supreme Court Already Said Trump Can Fire Mueller

The reasoning in Myers v. United States, decided by the Supreme Court in 1926, applies to the President’s ability to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller if he so chooses. Congressional attempts to “protect” Mueller from the President’s clear constitutional authority are intentional efforts to precipitate a constitutional crisis for the benefit of those who think impeaching President Trump will benefit them politically.

President Trump Signs New Transgender Military Ban

President Trump has signed a new memorandum that bans most individuals suffering from gender dysphoria from US military service. The new directive adopts recommendations from Defense Secretary Jim Mattis that "transgender persons who require or have undergone gender transition" cannot serve.

Sessions Takes On Activist Judges: It's About Time

Michael Walsh, PJ Media

Courts do not, in fact, have the final say in every political dispute; if they did, we would be ruled by little more than a berobed, unelected oligarchy. Congress, in fact, has constitutional oversight of every federal court in the land except the Supreme Court, and could abolish the lot of them tomorrow if it so wishes.

The Resurrection of Jeff Sessions

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Take heart. As someone has told us, "Revenge is a meal which tastes best when it is cold." The longer this takes (the investigation into FBI abuses), the better -- say to around Labor Day just as voters are starting to focus on the midterm elections. Until then, pazienza. If I am wrong about Sessions, if I or we misjudge him, there will be time to excoriate him later.

The Special Counsel Is Looking At The Wrong Administration

The point of counterintelligence and cybersecurity is not point fingers after the enemy has executed an intelligence operation – in this case an act of information warfare – it is to prevent it from happening. However, as far as we can tell, not only did Team Obama do nothing to stop the Russians, they helped them by undermining the peaceful transfer of power to President Trump.

House Intel meets Monday and could vote on memo release — is Jeff Sessions softening his stance?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The next 72 hours could be critical in the case of the memo: a possible vote to release it, a presidential go-ahead, and, most importantly, public evaluation and analysis of its contents. Does it live up to some Republicans' characterizations of it? Are Democratic criticisms accurate? Does its release, in fact, damage national security? It could be a very eventful week.

Trump promised to end 'American carnage.' Promise delivered.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, USA Today

This first year of the Donald Trump era shows once again that the difficult work we do alongside our state, local and tribal law enforcement partners makes a difference. Crime rates are not like the tides — we can help change them. And under Trump’s strong leadership, we will.

Case Against Bundys Dismissed: Obama’s FBI And DOJ Are The Real Criminals

Americans should start asking the larger questions raised by the gross misconduct of the Obama-era FBI and Justice Department that has been revealed in the Bundy trials and the killing of Robert "LaVoy" Finicum: When will those government officials responsible for all the lives destroyed be brought to justice? And, is the same kind of misconduct that was used to try to destroy the Bundys and their allies at work in the Hillary Clinton, Uranium One, Trump dossier and Russian collusion investigations?

Jeff Sessions, plug the FBI leaks

Editors, Washington Examiner

We don’t call for Sessions to step down, but he and Rosenstein must get their employees to obey the law and stop their illegal leaking. If the leaks are true, and Rosenstein knows if they are, he, Sessions, and Wray must take decisive action to investigate who is responsible and punish the perpetrators. If they are false, the perpetrators should likewise be punished, though not for leaking but for spreading malicious falsehoods.

The Greatest Constitutional Crisis Of Trump's Presidency

The greatest constitutional crisis of Trump's presidency is the overreach of the federal judiciary, manifested first in the various lower court orders attempting to stymie the President's orders on immigration, and now, most seriously, by judges attempting to bypass the President to run the military and the Department of Defense from the federal bench.

Latest Chapter In Bundy Saga Proves How Corrupt And Lawless Our Government Has Become

Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro declared a mistrial in the Nevada case against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, his sons Ryan and Ammon Bundy and their associate Ryan Payne, but that's only the tip of the iceberg of government misconduct against the Bundys.

Trump Was Right To Blast Corrupt FBI Asst. Director McCabe

We think the President and the Department of Justice inspector general have gone way too easy on Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe; from our perspective a Hatch Act violation should be the least of McCabe’s worries.

AG Jeff Sessions Opens Uranium One Investigation

This isn’t a fishing expedition, Attorney General Sessions is to be congratulated for ordering prosecutors to look into these matters to ensure that the public interest and law were followed throughout the process in light of very credible whistleblower allegations and the facts thus far revealed in the congressional hearings on Uranium One.

CMR: Judges Should Not Run Our Military

Federal judges do not have the power to run the military, but they will continue to do so unless the Executive Branch vigorously takes up the fight. Unfortunately, LGBT activists and Obama holdovers at Defense and Justice are about to give away core constitutional powers of the Presidency to the judiciary.

The FBI-Led Coup Against President Trump

It is time for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray to recover control of their agencies before the soft coup being led by Robert Mueller, James Comey and rogue FBI agent Peter Strzok engenders a real constitutional crisis.

Trump Tweets Order To DOJ: Will Sessions Override Corrupt Dems And Comply?

As much as we respect Attorney General Jeff Sessions, President Trump wasn’t elected, and he wasn’t appointed Attorney General, to continue the Obama-era policies of defying congressional subpoenas. If Jeff Sessions can’t get his underlings to comply with Congressional subpoenas heads should roll – either theirs or his.

Restoration Of The Rule Of Law: Sessions Ends Obama-Era Backdoor Law Making

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ended the lawless policy of the Obama administration when Attorneys General Eric Holder and Lorretta Lynch issued “guidance” almost at will to circumvent Congress and the checks and balances built into our Constitution.

Conservatives In House of Representatives Go On Offense Against Mueller

A group of principled conservatives in the U.S. House of Representatives did what Speaker of the House Paul Ryan will never do – they went on offense against Robert Mueller and the rest of the insiders protecting Hillary Clinton and the worst villains of the Obama-era swamp.

Hillary Clinton, Alger Hiss and the Schism in the American Soul

Just as in the 1950s the American Left and the Democratic Party tried to convince their fellow citizens that the objective truth of Communist penetration of the American government did not exist, so today's Democrats maintain the lie that the Clintons have done nothing worth investigating.
