U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar ruled against President Trump on an immigration matter. So Trump called him an Obama judge. And that prompted Chief Justice John Roberts to publicly rebuke the President, explaining, “there are no Obama judges or Trump or Bush or Clinton judges.”

Obama Judges

Mark Thiessen thinks jumping into a political argument is a funny way for Justice Roberts to show he’s above politics.

You may have noticed Trump doesn’t claim to be above politics. So he counterpunched that judges are a threat to national security.

Go here to see a president publicly rebuke the Supreme Court.

This cartoon isn’t based on any particular news story. No, it’s personal. Well, not really personal. Mechanical and digital would be more like it.

My car got busted for speeding.

Yeah, an unmanned camera ratted out the car. Then I got a computer generated letter from the Cleveland suburb of Linndale demanding $100. And it included a photo of what appears to be my car. So, I asked the car what it was doing speeding in Linndale. But the car didn’t answer.

So, if a computer busts my car, does my car have the right to remain silent?

 

Menthol Cigarettes

Flavored e-cigarettes are the Mike’s Hard Lemonade of the smoking world. Kids like em. So the FDA is cracking down. The government plans to go after menthol cigarettes too. But not the stuff that actually kills you – tobacco. Before it kills you you will have paid lots of taxes on tobacco. And governments are addicted to that.

Hanging With Chad

The Democrats dispatched Marc Elias to oversee the Florida recount. The same guy the Hillary campaign hired to dispute Trump’s 2016 election win. And that gave us Fusion GPS and the dubious Steele Dossier.

Chad

Now he’s hoping to trigger a hand recount in Florida. And that’s something the WSJ says could become “hanging chads, the sequel.”

Citizen Trump

birthright citizenship

President Trump says he’ll end birthright citizenship. That’s the deal where immigrants give birth after entering the country illegally. The baby is a U.S. citizen according to the 14th amendment to the constitution. At least that’s what the WSJ it says means in an editorial “Rewriting the 14th Amendment.”

But according to Trump that’s not what it means. It’s kind of complicated. If you have three hours or so you can hear what Robert Bork had to say it about in 1987.

Anyway, the president says he can end birthright citizenship with an executive order. Bad idea, says Rich Lowry, that’s the kind of thing Obama used to do.
