'Demand Justice' launches assault on Trump's nominee for federal bench

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

An absurdly-named special-interest group calling itself “Demand Justice” filed a formal complaint with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals accusing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of wrongdoing in stacking the federal judiciary with judges who believe in abiding by the Constitution (specifically Justin Walker). On the face of it, the complaint is funny because it suggests that “Demand Justice” is so unfamiliar with the actual Constitution that they don’t even know how judges are installed on the federal bench. According to the Constitution, federal judges are nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate.

No, Chief Justice Roberts Cannot Issue Subpoenas

Only Senators may identify a witness to be called and no witnesses may be called unless the Senate specifically votes to allow a motion to be filed regarding whether the witness issue will even be debated. No matter how hard the Democrats try to spin this to influence the media narrative, and Chief Justice Roberts. the bottom line is that 51 Senators will decide who – if any – witnesses will be called.

McConnell Should Toss Out This Malicious Impeachment

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The impeachment of Donald Trump is the fruit of a malicious prosecution whose roots go back to the 2016 election, in the aftermath of which stunned liberals and Democrats began to plot the removal of the new president. There is a reason why no crime was charged in the impeachment of Donald Trump. There was no crime committed. It is ridiculous to deny that this impeachment is partisan, political and personal. It reeks of politics, partisanship and Trump-hatred. As for patriotic, that depends on where you stand — or sit. Mitch McConnell should let the House managers make their case, and then call for a vote to dismiss, and treat this indictment with the contempt it so richly deserves.

Conservative Leaders To McConnell: ‘a CR into December would be an error’

CAP Memo: Conservatives Do Not Support Another Short-Term, Budget-Busting Spending Bill

Over 100 leaders of conservative organizations have put their names to a Conservative Action Project Memo to the Movement stating that conservatives reject attempts by Congress to pass yet another bloated, pork-filled spending bill.

Vile Democrat Adam Schiff Draws Opponent: California Super Lawyer Eric Early

In launching his campaign Mr. Early said, “Adam Schiff’s witch-hunt against our President is reprehensible. Schiff continually abuses his power and misleads the American people, wasting tens of millions of our dollars in the process. It’s got to stop. I’m sick and tired of being lied to by career politician Schiff as he tries to destroy the President and works to replace our Democracy with Socialism."

Mitch McConnell Goes Into Full Killer Turtle Mode On Impeachment

Senator McConnell’s stinging remarks about impeachment were long overdue, and will no doubt be seen by many as some sort of milestone in the impeachment battle – and well they might prove to be if they are followed up with action. One action Senator McConnell could take is to move the Senate to immediately dismiss the charges if they are ever brought.

Maybe Now Congress Will Rein In The Tech Lords

It's good and long overdue that the GOP leadership finally figured out that you don’t feed your enemies – but the advertising money they are withholding from Twitter is a rounding error to these giant tech companies. What is really needed is serious, sustained and vigorously executed litigation and enforcement of anti-trust laws and Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

Fiscal Conservatism, R.I.P.

Rachel Bovard, American Greatness

House conservatives have been undermined at every step by Senate Republicans, who appear to have virtually no interest in restoring fiscal sanity. The majority party in the Senate dismissed the White House’s suggested $150 billion in spending offsets, opting instead to side with House Democrats in a paltry $77 billion in offsets whose application are delayed long enough to ensure they will most likely never take effect. The state of fiscal conservatism has been on the decline in the last five years, but this budget deal officially represents its funeral. The party that gave us “cut, cap, and balance” is a shadow of its former self.

GOP List Of Shame On Budget Vote

From our perspective the spending deal was no victory, but another “fear The Turtle” moment in which the not-so-subtle big spending hand of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell manipulated the White House and the House Republican Leadership into once again abandoning any pretense of fiscal restraint.

Border Wall Big Win, But Not Fundamental

President Trump and conservatives won a big victory in the Supreme Court’s Wall ruling and in the otherwise disastrous spending bill, but we must be prepared to renew the immigration fight when Congress returns in September and takes-up the next round of spending bills.

What Do You Call A One-Legged Stool?

Principles matter in elections, and with all four legs of the 2016 big table coalition working full throttle on his behalf Donald Trump is a shoo-in for reelection, but a stool or table supported only by the one leg of Donald Trump’s outsized personality is likely to crash on Election Day.

Conservatives Oppose Trillion Dollar Spending Boondoggle

The Trump administration projected in March that this year’s deficit will hit $1.1 trillion, up from last year’s deficit of $779 billion – a figure comparable to the Obama-era deficit. After months of urging congressional and administration negotiators to prioritize reductions in spending, the Conservative Action Project has come out in opposition to this irresponsible bipartisan budget deal.

Trump Sucked Into McConnell Spending Betrayal

The voters who want fiscal responsibility who powered the Tea Party Wave and the Trump Movement haven’t gone away. While they may grudgingly support President Trump in 2020 against a Far-Left progressive Democrat, congressional Republicans who think they can spend their way to reelection will face the wrath of those voters.

Tucker Carlson Is Right, But Who Is Responsible For This Disaster?

Tucker Carlson was right, “Ilhan Omar is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country.” And if Tucker is right, it is fair to ask who is responsible for this civilization-level disaster? We hold former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama responsible for introducing this poison into our society.
