Nonwhite Judge Blocks Trump’s Latest Travel Ban

JUDGE DERRICK WATSON. BLOCKED EARLIER TRAVEL BAN TOO.

Wikipedia tells us that Judge Derrick Watson, who is determined to prevent any travel ban at all from ever taking place for any reason, is an Obama appointee. He is a Native Hawaiian.

He’s also not surprisingly allegedly received threats for his unconcern with public safety.

So, back goes the Attorney General’s office to the Supreme Court, which really needs to excoriate this little Hawaiian worn.

ABC News

A federal judge in Hawaii blocked most of President Donald Trump’s latest travel ban Tuesday, just hours before it was set to take effect, saying the revised order “suffers from precisely the same maladies as its predecessor.”

It was the third set of travel restrictions issued by the president to be thwarted, in whole or in part, by the courts.

U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson issued the ruling after the ban on a set of mostly Muslim countries was challenged by the state of Hawaii, which warned that the restrictions would separate families and undermine the recruiting of diverse college students.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders called the ruling “dangerously flawed” and said it “undercuts the president’s efforts to keep the American people safe.” The Justice Department said it will quickly appeal.

At issue was a ban, announced in September and set to go into effect early Wednesday, on travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria and Yemen, along with some Venezuelan government officials and their families.

The Trump administration said the ban was based on an assessment of each country’s security situation and willingness to share information with the U.S.

Watson, appointed to the bench by President Barack Obama, said the new restrictions ignore a federal appeals court ruling against Trump’s previous ban.

The latest version “plainly discriminates based on nationality in the manner that the 9th Circuit has found antithetical to … the founding principles of this nation,” Watson wrote.

The judge’s ruling applies only to the six Muslim-majority countries on the list. It does not affect the restrictions against North Korea or Venezuela, because Hawaii did not ask for that.

“This is the third time Hawaii has gone to court to stop President Trump from issuing a travel ban that discriminates against people based on their nation of origin or religion,” Hawaii Attorney General Doug Chin said in a statement. “Today is another victory for the rule of law.”

Hawaii argued the updated ban was a continuation of Trump’s campaign call for a ban on Muslims, despite the addition of two countries without a Muslim majority.

Watson noted that Hawaii had argued Trump did not back down from that call, listing in the ruling a series of June tweets “in which (Trump) complained about how the Justice Department had submitted a ‘watered down, politically correct version’ to the Supreme Court.”

Other courts that weighed the travel ban have cited Trump’s comments about banning Muslims, including the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia and a federal judge in Maryland. Watson also referred to a Trump campaign statement in his previous ruling.

His Tuesday ruling said the new ban, like its predecessor, fails to show that nationality alone makes a person a greater security risk to the U.S.

“The categorical restrictions on entire populations of men, women and children, based upon nationality, are a poor fit for the issues regarding the sharing of ‘public-safety and terrorism-related information’ that the president identifies,” Watson wrote.

He said the ban is inconsistent in the way some countries are included or left out. For example, Iraq failed to meet the security benchmark but was omitted from the ban. Somalia met the information-sharing benchmark but was included.

Watson found fault with what sorts of visitors are barred. For instance, all tourists and business travelers from Libya are excluded from the U.S., but student visitors were allowed.

The judge said he would set an expedited hearing to determine whether the temporary restraining order blocking the ban should be extended. It comes as other courts weigh challenges to the ban.

In Maryland, the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups are seeking to block the visa and entry restrictions. Washington state, Massachusetts, California, Oregon, New York and Maryland are challenging the order in front of the same federal judge in Seattle who struck down Trump’s initial ban in January.

That ban — aimed mostly at Muslim-majority countries — led to chaos and confusion at airports nationwide and triggered several lawsuits, including one from Hawaii.

When Trump revised the ban, Hawaii challenged that version, too, and Watson agreed it discriminated on the basis of nationality and religion. A subsequent U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowed the administration to partially reinstate restrictions against Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen and against all refugees.

Hawaii then successfully challenged the government’s definition of which relatives of people already living in the U.S. would be allowed into the country, and Watson ordered the list expanded.

Nonwhites shouldn’t be judges except for their own peoples. This one wants to create chaos, justifying it with that liberal catchall, “inclusion.”

Lawyer Disbarred for Criticizing Faggots is Asking for Law License Back, Still Must Pay $3.5 Million Judgement

ANDREW SHERVILL. DESTROYED BY LEGAL SYSTEM FOR CRITICIZING GAYS.

This is one of the most incredible stories you’re ever likely to read.

It proves that there is no rule of law in America. The court system is populated by (((Communists))) who will destroy you if you give them a chance.

An anti-gay blogger who thought he had First Amendment rights has been utterly reduced to nothing. He had been a successful attorney, but he didn’t count on how the law is what an evil cabal of filth says it is.

Mlive

ANN ARBOR, MI – A former state assistant attorney general known for his anti-gay writing about a former University of Michigan student body president is appealing the Michigan Attorney Discipline Board’s decision to revoke his law license.

Andrew Shirvell, whose disbarment was ordered by the board in March, has a hearing for a petition for review on Wednesday, Oct. 18, before the Michigan Attorney Discipline Board.

In October 2016, the Michigan Attorney Discipline Board said the former state assistant attorney general committed misconduct when he harassed Christopher Armstrong, the university’s first openly gay student body president. Shirvell was fired in 2010.

Shirvell believes the panel responsible for revoking his law license back in March was biased against him.

“Given that my case is one of the most politically-charged to have ever come before a Hearing Panel … I cannot imagine a more biased panel of attorneys who sat in judgment of me,” Shirvell said in a news release. “With Donald Trump now in the White House, conservative Christians like me will no longer tolerate
being railroaded by the liberal elite. It is time for the Michigan Attorney Discipline Board to overturn the Hearing Panel’s biased determinations and restore my law license.”

In 2012, a jury found Shirvell had stalked, defamed and invaded Armstrong’s privacy and Shirvell was ordered to pay $4.5 million.

The U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the judgment against Shirvell in February 2015.

The court of appeal’s decision came with a dismissal of damages awarded for false light invasion of privacy, but he still owed Armstrong $3.5 million stemming from the 2012 jury verdict.

In January 2015, the state of appeals court denied Shirvell’s request for unemployment benefits, saying his firing by then-attorney general Mike Cox was justified because Shirvell’s Facebook posts and gay-bashing blog negatively impacted the agency’s credibility.

At the time, Cox said Shirvell was not fired for exercising his First Amendment rights, but for lying to investigators during a disciplinary hearing and for posting attacks online during work hours.

Shirvell expressed his views as a private citizen, but the court said the First Amendment did not protect him because the state provided evidence that his conduct affected government services.

The background on this travesty of justice can be read in this 2010 CNN article. It shows that Shervill did nothing that any decent person wouldn’t do.

My mind is still reeling over this case. It deserves much more attention than its gotten from the alt-right and conservative Christians.

California adopts ‘sanctuary state’ immigration law in snub to Trump

If as Ann Barnhardt says, all politicians are psychopaths, California’s politicians represent a doubling down in their evil insanity.

As California’s population is now two-thirds nonwhite, the state is going to sink into third world status over the long term as the props that have kept its head above water are kicked out from under it.

The rest of America should make sure that our tax dollars aren’t used for the race replacement of whites.  In other words, no more federal subsidies for California.

The Guardian

California has adopted the most expansive “sanctuary state” law in the US with the goal of obstructing Donald Trump’s deportation agenda by prohibiting police in the country’s most populous state from cooperating with federal immigration authorities.

The landmark bill, signed into law on Thursday, restricts police from questioning people about their citizenship status and detaining foreign-born residents on immigration violations. The law, which also prohibits police from transferring certain inmates to immigration authorities, could lead to a major legal showdown between the White House and California and is the latest example of the liberal Golden State creating roadblocks to Trump policies.

 

The legislation is more far-reaching than an existing sanctuary state policy in Oregon and could help shield immigrants from aggressive deportation efforts in a state home to more than two million undocumented people, nearly a quarter of all unauthorized immigrants living in the US.

The California Values Act builds on the sanctuary city policies that Trump aggressively targeted during his 2016 campaign and which exist in hundreds of municipalities. Studies have challenged Trump’s claims that sanctuary jurisdictions attract crime; some research suggests cities with sanctuary policies have significantly lower crime rates than comparable municipalities that allow local police to enforce immigration laws.

Some liberal cities, such as San Francisco, have sued the Trump administration over his threats to withhold federal public safety grant money as a punishment. Those cities have argued that when police stay out of immigration enforcement, undocumented people are more likely to report crimes and work with police.

Even before California governor Jerry Brown signed the new law, the bill was the subject of widespread attacks by the Trump administration and conservatives across the country. US attorney general Jeff Sessions recently called the bill “unconscionable” and said it “risks the safety of good law enforcement officers and the safety of the neighborhoods that need their protection the most”.

In California, a state controlled by Democrats, the proposal has faced significant pushback from some conservative sheriffs. Brown, a Democrat, recently negotiated revisions with sponsoring senator Kevin de León that loosened restrictions on police, giving them discretion to hold certain people for federal authorities if they’ve been convicted of serious or violent felonies.

Brown said: “These are uncertain times for undocumented Californians and their families, and this bill strikes a balance that will protect public safety, while bringing a measure of comfort to those families who are now living in fear every day.”

 

Who are these “families who are now living in fear every day?” They live in the reprobate minds of Jerry Brown and his fellow liberals.

And don’t you love the word “undocumented” when the right word would be “illegal.”

Trump Vindicated Trending on Twitter This A.M. as Wiretapping Claims Proved True

CANDIDATE TRUMP PICTURED WITH CAMPAIGN MANAGER PAUL MANAFORT.

On Monday night I posted this item on the shocking revelation that the FBI was wiretapping the Trump campaign, probably due to an effort by Obama to get dirt on Trump.

Now, early Tuesday morning in the U.S., Tweets with the Trump Vindicated label are trending.

This image is in one of the Tweets. Nice.

When is AG Jeff Sessions going to get to the bottom of this mess by naming a Special Counsel to investigate the Obama/Clinton campaign?

The evidence just keeps spilling out that Obama and his administration were engaged in significant illegal espionage against the Republican challenger. It’s about time that heads rolled and Democrats don prison orange.

Excerpt from Breitbart

U.S. investigators wiretapped President Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to a report by CNN that vindicates the president’s earlier claims, which were mocked as a conspiracy theory.

President Trump had tweeted on March 4: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”

Breitbart News editor Joel Pollak had reported the day before Trump’s tweet that the Obama administration “sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign: continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found.”

Trump’s claim, and Breitbart News’s report, were mocked as a conspiracy theory, and other news outlets reported that there was no basis to the claims.

CNN itself at the time called the idea that Trump was wiretapped “incendiary.”

But a report Monday evening said U.S. investigators obtained a surveillance warrant on Manafort from a secret court and had monitored him before and after the election, including a “period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump.”

The report said the secret court that handles the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act had authorized a surveillance warrant against Manafort for an investigation that began in 2014, looking into his firm, the Podesta Group, and another firm’s lobbying work for Ukraine’s pro-Russian former ruling party.

“The surveillance was discontinued at some point last year for lack of evidence,” a source told CNN.

However, the FBI then restarted the surveillance after obtaining a new FISA warrant that extended early into this year. The report notably does not say when the new warrant was obtained. Manafort joined the Trump campaign as its chairman in May 2016.

NY Times Compares Trump Campaign to Organized Crime as Manifort Wiretapping and Mueller Terror Tactics Revealed

ROBERT MUELLER. POSTER BOY FOR THE AMERICAN POLICE STATE.

PAUL MANAFORT. DEEP STATE WIRETAPS LASTED FOR YEARS.

No wonder President Trump was so disgusted when Jeff Sessions appointed Robert Mueller as Special Counsel.

Mueller is a (((Deep State))) terrorist, according to what we now know. Mueller’s police state tactics are worthy of the Stalinist Soviet Union.

The news that Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was wiretapped since 2014 has broken big in the press, but the real news to any freedom-loving Constitutionalist is the big reveal on how dirtbag Mueller does business.

Zerohedge

With all of the massive hurricanes safely swirling far away from the continental U.S., for a few days at least, the New York Times and CNN has once again returned to their regularly scheduled programming: 24×7 Coverage Of Russian Collusion. Of course, just like their prior coverage, today’s ‘bombshell’ reports, which center around Paul Manafort, are heavy on the sensationalized story telling and light on the facts.

First, the New York Times brings us new, fascinating details of precisely how Robert Mueller raided Paul Manafort’s house earlier this summer using “shock-and-awe tactics to intimidate witnesses and potential targets of the inquiry.”

Paul J. Manafort was in bed early one morning in July when federal agents bearing a search warrant picked the lock on his front door and raided his Virginia home. They took binders stuffed with documents and copied his computer files, looking for evidence that Mr. Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, set up secret offshore bank accounts. They even photographed the expensive suits in his closet.

Ex-Secret Service Agent Who Condemned Looters Branded as Racist

Dan Bongino tells Tucker Carlson that he’s been tagged as a racist for not making excuses for looters who … surprise … just happen to be of the colored race.

Dan gets a sympathetic hearing from Tucker.

Since liberals have excused every other type of crime committed by our darker cousins, why wouldn’t they excuse looting.

Fox News Insider

Former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino blasted critics who he said labeled him a racist for previously condemning looters in Florida.

“Apparently… discussing looting now makes you a racist,” he said.

Bongino, who lives in Florida, said those who are burglarizing stores during Hurricane Irma are “hack, phony frauds who have no lives.”

He said the political left makes excuses for looters during natural disasters because their livelihoods are “based off clickbait.”

Bongino said that, if people can market their side of an issue by declaring the other side racist, “some idiot is going to click on [their] article.”

He said that the left and some in the media speak as if they understand the looters because it is a way to blame capitalism for something.

Paraphrasing scholar Thomas Sowell, Bongino said sympathizers see it as “not the criminals fault – it’s society’s fault. If we were a little more socialist and Communist, or better planners, we wouldn’t have this problem.”

Tucker Carlson pointed out that the widely-circulated news camera video of looters in Fort Lauderdale was not an example of “mothers taking diapers,” but young men with new cars, clad in gold chains, who were stealing sneakers.

Sheriff Threatens to Arrest Fugitives at Shelters

SHERIFF GRADY JUDD. HE WARNED THEM.

Liberals, including the ACLU, are having a fit because Florida Sheriff Grady Judd warned fugitives that he’s not suspending the arrest process just because of an approaching hurricane. He also flat out barred those on the sex offender registry from seeking refuge in shelters. Which brought about more whining from liberals more concerned with pedophiles than with children.

Obviously, these policies have a greater effect on men than women, and on nonwhites than on whites.

Not spoken openly, the policies are sort of a Make America’s Hurricane Shelters Safe Again. After the 2005 shelter chaos and murder in the New Orleans Superdome shelter, it’s good to see someone thinking ahead and doing his job.

Orlando Sentinel

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd is threatening to jail wanted people seeking shelter due to Hurricane Irma.

The sheriff, who is known for his outspoken comments, made the threat in a series of posts to Twitter.

“If you go to a shelter for #Irma and you have a warrant, we’ll gladly escort you to the safe and secure shelter called the Polk County Jail,” Judd tweeted to his nearly 66,000 followers on Twitter.

Judd also posted that officers would be at every shelter checking IDs and that sex offenders and sex predators would not be allowed inside.

When checking IDs, if an officer sees that someone has a warrant, that person will be taken into custody, Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Carrie Horstman said.

Horstman added officers don’t have a way of seeing what crime the warrant is for, so it’s possible those with non-violent misdemeanor offenses could be arrested.

“Officers are legally obligated to take a person into custody if they have a warrant,” she said.

Judd said in preparation for the hurricane, fugitives should turn themselves into the jail because “it’s a secure location.”

Horstman said the posts were made ahead of the storm to give people ample time to prepare.

“We cannot and we will not have innocent children in a shelter with sexual offenders and predators. Period,” Judd posted to his Twitter, @PolkCoSheriff.

Horstman said since there’s a possibility children will be in the shelters, sex offenders and sex predators are not allowed inside. She said they had a similar policy during the 2004 hurricane season. It’s unclear if any arrests were made at shelters due to warrants.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida said Judd should “focus on preparing for Irma, not burnishing your Joe Arpaio-style ‘tough cop’ credentials with irresponsible tweets.”

Arpaio, a former sheriff in Arizona, was found guilty of criminal contempt after denying a court order to halt stopping immigrants because of suspicion they were in the country illegally. He was pardoned by President Donald Trump last month.

The nonprofit says most people with outstanding warrants are low-level offenders and pose no threat in a shelter.

Judd’s comments “send the message that these individuals must choose between facing a natural disaster without aid and shelter or going to jail over things like unpaid traffic tickets,” a statement from ACLU reads.

Asked if supported Judd’s actions, Gov. Rick Scott said, “I haven’t seen that. My expectation is that everyone needs to follow the evacuation orders and get to safety. I’d have to look at exactly what was said.’’

Horstman said undocumented immigrants will not be affected by the policy. She also said that the policy will help the county keep a log at the shelter, which she said is important during a natural disaster.

“We aren’t sitting there looking for people to arrest,” she said “We are sitting there to keep people safe.”

Some Twitter users accused Judd of discouraging people from going to shelters, which could lead to injuries or death.

Molyneux notes the irony of not allowing ID checks for elections:

And the bleeding heart lefties come out:
