“Coequal in Tyranny: The Ninth Circuit’s Rules for Radicals” is the current column, now on Townhall.com. An excerpt:

Read the judicial rules for radicals issued by the United States Court Of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in affirmation of the ban on The Ban. It follows the Executive Order issued by President Donald Trump, with the imprimatur of 62 million voters, to protect the nation from foreign terrorists entering into the United States. Two states objected to the president’s undeniably badly written Order, which, while upholding negative rights—and neither denying natural rights nor minting positive ones—was nevertheless replete with administrative errors.

Acting as coequal partners in the administrative tyranny the president is trying to break, the two states issued a temporary restraining order against “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States.” (I can already hear the election midterm ads.)

In the corner for the Deplorables was a government lawyer. August Flentje Esq. had “argued” (if you can call it that) for an emergency stay of the Washington State district court’s temporary restraining order against the president. The three Ninth Circuit jurists who heard the case said no.

CAREER GOVERNMENT LAWYERS. If you’re good at what you do, you look to make it in the private sector (as our president did, before he did us a favor). If not, you seek sheltered employment (as President Trump’s predecessor did). Clearly, clerking for the Supreme Court, as August Flentje had done, doesn’t mean a whole lot.

In presenting the oral arguments for the president and the people, Flentje evinced a level of incompetence that spurred the Bench to the heights of usurpation. For example, when The Court caviled about an alleged lack of evidence for the necessity of the “travel ban,” not only did Flentje fail to provide it, but he failed to question the need for this evidence based on the scope of the president’s constitutional, executive power in matters of nation security.

Mr. President: You promised to hire the best. Alan Dershowitz is champing at the bit. Kris Kobach would kill it in any court. (Jonathan Turley is soft. Don’t touch Fox News’ tele-judges.)

Helped by the poor job stumblebum Flentje did in arguing the president’s prerogative and position, the Ninth Circuit judges usurped President Trump’s constitutional authority, substituting their own judgment for his. The three refused to lift the ban on the ban and reinstate an Executive Order that was never meant to be subjected to judicial review, in the first place.

GEORGE W. BUSH’S LAWYER. Those on the Right who opposed George Bush during his presidency (check) were vindicated yet again. In the nooks-and-crannies of our command-and-control judiciary, Bush had squirreled away a jurist as bad as John G. Roberts Jr.

Recall, Roberts, chief of the country’s legal politburo of proctologists, rewrote Obama’s Affordable Care Act. He then proceeded to provide the fifth vote to uphold the individual mandate undergirding the law, thereby undeniably and obscenely extending Congress’s taxing power. (Lazy government worker Paul Ryan still hasn’t come up with an alternative to ObamaCare, one that’ll prevent the Left from torching the country. Patience. It’s only been eight years.)

The unelected Bush appointee under discussion is from my State of Washington. District Judge James L. Robart, like Bush, would wrestle a crocodile for an illegal immigrant. Or, for potential immigrants, preferably from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Somalia, and Sudan.

Having been granted standing by the Ninth Circuit to appeal President Trump’s Executive Order, Robart, as explained by a Daily Caller contributor, “hinged his entire ruling on a concept called parens patriae, …

Noah Purcell, you don’t represent Washington State. You, the tech execs and social justice clientele are having a ‘moment.’ Enjoy! It won’t last! You didn’t even have standing to bring the case. You’re asserting the rights of people who are not even Americans. You’re a joke. The 9th circuit is a joke.

Tucker Carlson Is The Only Immigration Patriot @ Fox News

Homeland Security, IMMIGRATION, Islam, Labor, Multiculturalism, Nationhood, Republicans

Tucker Carlson Socratically questions his Republican simpleton guest (6:10 in): “Our current understanding is that foreigners can come here until we can show they pose a danger to us. Shouldn’t our assumption be that nobody has the right to come here until they can show us the benefit of their coming here?”

Tucker went on to observe that “the People whom the congress is supposed to be representing are largely not in favor of resettling Syrian refugees. Only 36% in favor [and likely virtue signalling to the surveyors posing the questions. Survey methodology is notoriously confounded by a bias whereby, from the questions asked, the surveyed sense the “right” reply and oblige the individual questioning them]. People are not for this. Why wouldn’t the congress take this up? They’re supposed to be representing The People.” And, “Do employers have the moral right to low-wage labor?”

Tucker is an immigration patriot because he suggests restricted in-migration based on reasons other than “the security of the American people.” The latter is the sum total of the case made by all at Fox News other than Tucker Carlson.

Moreover, everyone at Fox News currently concurs that we have no problem with legal immigration, only with the illegal variety. It’s now mandatory to pair an objection to the invasion of the American Southwest with an embrace of all forms of legal immigration. The sole emphasis on border security has, in all likelihood, entrenched the status quo—Americans will never assert their right to determine the nature of the country they live in and, by extension, the kind of immigrants they welcome. The security risk newcomers pose is the only permissible topic for conversation. So I wrote in 2006.

Eleven years hence, and Tucker has broken the mold on Fox News.

Give Tucker time, and he’ll question “diversity.”

Dershowitz would do the job, too; he enjoys a challenge. Thought you hired the best, POTUS:

UPDATED (2/7): BRAVO: A US Marine Who Puts Americans FIRST

Homeland Security, Islam, Middle East, Military, Nationhood, Neoconservatism

A neoconservative wish-come-true is for the Empire’s Army to be loyal to the satellite states (Iraq, etc.) and the mission; not to Americans first. These, unfortunately, can no longer be conflated. They should be, but are not, one and the same thing.

This remarkable US Marine, however, is unwilling to think as he is trained to think by a military brass that increasingly flouts its limited, constitutional obligations. Here’s a Marine whose fidelity isn’t to Empire, but to America First, to his fellow Americans. This Marine has certainly not been afflicted with a Lawrence of Arabia complex. Bravo.

… the military is government. The military works like government; is financed like government, and sports many of the same inherent malignancies of government. Like government, it must be kept small. Conservatives can’t coherently preach against the evils of big government, while excluding the military mammoth.

UPDATED (2/4): Centralized Judicial Tyranny: Bush-Era Judge (& Tech Execs) Moves Against Trump Immigration Order

Bush, Business, Donald Trump, Homeland Security, IMMIGRATION, Justice, Law, Left-Liberalism, Technology

A George-Bush era judge acts against the wishes of the president, as expressed in an Executive Order, no less, and the 61,900,651 who voted for Donald Trump and stand behind him. Why the surprise at The Hill?

Neoconservative Bush nominated Harriet Miers, whom even staunch Bush supporters said was deeply stupid. That nomination was aborted, but a lot of others weren’t (See “Bush-appointed judge who halted Trump travel ban nationwide.”)

The sickening “temporary nationwide restraining order, stopping President Trump’s executive order banning citizens of seven countries from entering the United States,” is courtesy of my sickening State of Washington.

Judge James Robart, who was appointed by former President George Bush in 2003, ruled the executive order would be stopped nationwide, effective immediately.
“The Constitution prevailed today,” Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson said in a statement after the ruling. “No one is above the law — not even the President.”
“It’s our president’s duty to honor this ruling and I’ll make sure he does,” Ferguson added.
The ruling, made at the request of Washington and Minnesota, is the broadest to date against Trump’s executive order.

When these two lawyers claim economic harm has been inflicted on our state, you know they’re speaking for Microsoft and Amazon, ideologically motivated entities both. Yes, conservative prattle about cheap labor is simplistic. The tech execs are way worse than businessmen vested in the wealth of their shareholders. That would be a good thing and a belssing.

The truth is that the tech execs are true believers, true radical leftists. They believe all cultures are equal, they enjoy diminishing western culture, and they take sadistic pleasure in replacing local employees with imported ones, banishing Christian bibles and erecting Islamic pray-rooms. By so doing, tech exec keep the locals pliant.
