Trump offered relief for young immigrant “Dreamers” in exchange for for his wall. It was an appeal to the Democrat’s base but Pelosi wouldn’t bite. She wants Trump stuffed and mounted, if not devoured.

Meanwhile, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has bigger fish to fry. She says climate change will kill us all in 12 years, so why are you worried about money.

Establishment Democrats seem more worried about her.

Obama Judges Trump Judges

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.

 

When Civility Can Start Again

“That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

“You can be civil but you can’t overcome what they do unless you win elections.” – Hillary Clinton

AP reported that the Brett Kavanaugh Senate hearings touched off more Democratic resistance.

Democrats don’t have the votes to block Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. But that didn’t stop them from putting up a rowdy, leave-nothing-on-the-table fight during four days of Senate confirmation hearings that marked a new stage in the party’s resistance to President Donald Trump.

Not Innocent Until Proven Guilty

Then the Christine Blasey Ford sexual assault allegations surfaced. And Dems insisted she had to be believed. They also denied that she had a burden of proof because “it’s a hearing not a trial.”

An angry WSJ editorial responded that, “If “J’Accuse” is the new standard of proof, then we have a long list of Democrats who should be summarily dismissed from public life.”

Impeachment

Democrats are trying to keep their impeachment hopes under the radar. For example,  Jimmy Carter’s not talking about it and he says you shouldn’t either. Besides, other Democratic leaders like Nancy Pelosi worry impeachment talk could backfire.

But former Labor Secretary Robert Reich has a different approach. He doesn’t want impeachment talk either. In fact he doesn’t want Trump impeached at all.

He wants the election annulled.
