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.

Trump denounces Democrats as an “angry mob.”

But Democrats insist they’re not a mob.

And Hillary says they’ll stop being a mob when they get back in power.

Roughing The Justice

Daniel Henninger says half the Senate Judiciary Committee created a new legal standard – “I believe Christine.”

This new standard for court nominees (and surely others in and outside politics) would be that judgment can be rendered in the absence of substantive argument or any legal standard relating to corroboration, cross-examination or presumption of innocence.

And Andrew McCarthy claims, “The real objective was not to destroy Kavanaugh but to convey what Democrats have in store for any conservative who seeks high public office.”

But you don’t have to be a conservative running for high office. Here’s a woman accusing a little boy of sexually assaulting her when he walked by with his mom.

The little boy was crying and couldn’t say if he was conservative or liberal.

Christine Basley Ford sent a letter to Senator Diane Feinstein claiming Brett Kauvanough assaulted her when they were both in high school. Senator Feinstein held the letter for six weeks. And then, when it looked like Kavanaugh might be confirmed to the Supreme Court, someone leaked the letter to the media.

Rough Justice

So, despite her fear of flying, Dr. Ford flew to Washington to testify  before the Senate Judiciary Committee. She seemed sincere but was unable to remember when or where the assault took place. Nor could she remember how she got there or returned home. And none of the eyewitnesses she named could corroborate her story.

Brett Kananaugh responded with righteous indignation to accusations that he’s a drunken serial rapist . Which led to accusations that he lacks “judicial temperament.”
