NAACP Plays Race Card Against Trump Nominee

The NAACP is playing the race card again, this time about potential Trump nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Barrett is rumored to be one of the two likely picks to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, which is slated to be announced on Monday. Quoth the race-baiters: “Amy Coney Barrett sided against a Black worker in favor of a company’s ‘separate-but-equal arrangement’. But, per usual, the devil’s in the details. The only case that comes close to that description is one that was decided BEFORE Barrett was appointed to the Court. Typical liberal strategy: if facts are against you, make up some new ‘facts’.

An arm of the NAACP on Monday falsely accused a potential Trump nominee of ruling against a black worker in a discrimination claim.

“As a judge, Amy Coney Barrett sided against an Black worker in favor of a company’s ‘separate-but-equal arrangement,’ flying in the face of the Civil Rights Act of 1964,” read a now-deleted tweet from the NAACP’s Legal Defense Fund. “Now, she’s being considered for a lifetime seat on our nation’s highest court.

Other progressive organizations making the same claim against the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals judge and former Notre Dame law professor include the Alliance for Justice and the Center for American Progress.
“As a judge, Barrett sided against an African American worker who had been transferred to another store because of a company’s policy of segregating their employees by race and ethnicity, finding that the company’s ‘separate-but-equal arrangement is permissible,'” complained AFJ

Majority Want SCOTUS Justice Confirmed Before Elections

Unfortunately Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, his hope for a post-election SCOTUS confirmation is among the minority in America…by 2-to-1.
According to a new NBC/SurveyMonkey poll released Tuesday, 62% of Americans want Trump’s yet-to-be-named nominee confirmed before the November elections.
A mere 33% want the confirmation vote to occur after the elections.
Independents also support a pre-election vote on the nominee by a near mirror number of 61%.
So the catch-22 for Dems is that they’ll likely lose more momentum in that ‘blue wave’ if they press the issue of waiting on Trump’s nominee.
Here’s more from Breitbart…
Americans want the President to appoint, and the Senate to confirm, a new Supreme Court justice before the 2018 midterm elections — by a staggering 2-to-1 margin, according to a new poll released Tuesday.

 

According to a new NBC News/SurveyMonkey poll:

More than six in 10 Americans, or 62 percent, said Trump’s nominee, who will be announced on Monday, should be confirmed or rejected before the elections in which control of the House and Senate are at stake. About three in 10, or 33 percent, said the Senate should wait until after the elections, the poll found.

The vast majority of Republicans surveyed, 85 percent, said the Senate’s vote on the nominee should take place before the election. Roughly six in 10 Independents, or 61 percent, agreed. However, more than half of Democrats, 55 percent, believe the voting on a new justice should wait.

Breaking: FBI’s Peter Strzok Subpoenaed

It’s official: disgraced, pro-Hillary former FBI agent Peter Strzok will appear at a public hearing next week on July 10 following a subpoena from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA).
The subpoena came after Strzok’s attorney announced that his client had withdrawn a previous offer to testify publically.
Hmm, what could Strzok possibly be hiding from the American people concerning his work both on the Hillary email and Russian election meddling investigations?
Inquiring minds want to know.
Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee has subpoenaed former FBI official Peter Strzok to appear at a public hearing July 10.

Virginia Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte issued the subpoena to force Strzok to appear before both the House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform Committees. The hearing will focus on Strzok’s work on both the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Strzok’s attorney, Aitan Goelman, said on Monday that his client had retracted a previous offer to testify publicly. Goelman cited a closed-door interview on June 27 with the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees as evidence that Republicans were setting “a trap” for the embattled FBI agent.

“Having sharpened their knives behind closed doors, the committee would now like to drag back Special Agent Strzok and have him testify in public — a request that we originally made and the committee denied,” Goelman said in a letter first reported by CNN.

NYT: Conservatives Have ‘Weaponized’ First Amendment

You know what they say about paybacks?

Clearly, the leftist, group-think MSM is distraught that it no longer has a monopoly on all of America’s press.

But that fact isn’t going to motivate them to accurately report news anytime soon.

To wit, we’ll continue getting articles like the recent NY Times front page piece: ‘How Conservatives Weaponized the First Amendment’.

Because obviously the First Amendment is a sacrosanct protection for a free people when applied to leftist media, but it’s merely a tool for political coercion in the hands of conservatives.

Got that?

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

In a Sunday article shockingly not marked “opinion,” a New York Times reporter accused conservatives of “weaponizing” the First Amendment. The story by Adam Liptak titled “How Conservatives Weaponized the First Amendment” made it onto the front page of Sunday’s paper and was presented as a straight news story rather than an opinion piece.

Within just four paragraphs, the author claimed that conservatives have used free speech to justify “discrimination against gay couples” and “unlimited campaign spending.” The article went on to suggest that conservatives are only interested in protecting free speech because it advances their policy goals and that free speech disproportionately benefits the powerful in society.

‘Zero Chance’ Trump Will Abolish ICE

In usual fashion, POTUS took to Twitter to send a message loud and clear concerning his unwavering support for Immigration and Customs Enforcement:

“To the great and brave men and women of ICE, do not worry or lose your spirit…The radical left Dems want you out. Next it will be all police. Zero chance, It will never happen!”

The Occupy ICE movement, like all the others, are more useful idiots for the Democrats’ class warfare strategy.

It all worked very well until it ran up against Trump. They’ll likely try it again with renewed fervor in 2020. And it’ll be fun to watch.

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

President Donald Trump responded to growing calls to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Saturday morning, saying, “Zero chance, It will never happen.”

The president sent a tweet aimed at Democrats, some of whom have openly called for ICE to be reorganized or disbanded altogether. He also defended ICE’s accomplishments, particularly with regard to the violent gang MS-13.

FBI Refuses to Turn Over Docs on Lynch/Hillary Investigation

According to a report by RealClearInvestigations, the FBI is refusing to fork over intelligence that alleges Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch meddled in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

While we’re wondering ‘why’ this information has yet to be turned over, we can only wonder also if some of that intelligence is a transcription of Lynch’s Phoenix tarmac meeting with Mr. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Every week that passes without the DOJ/FBI’s compliance with congressional requests is just one more reason to begin impeaching people until they recognize the constitutional authority of the people’s house.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

The FBI had little problem leaking “unverified” dirt from Russian sources on Donald Trump and his campaign aides – and even basing FISA wiretaps on it. But according to the Justice Department’s inspector general, the bureau is refusing to allow even members of Congress with top security clearance to see intercepted material alleging political interference by President Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch:

The FBI had little problem leaking “unverified” dirt from Russian sources on Donald Trump and his campaign aides – and even basing FISA wiretaps on it. But according to the Justice Department’s inspector general, the bureau is refusing to allow even members of Congress with top security clearance to see intercepted material alleging political interference by President Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch.

That material – which has been outlined in press reports – consists of unverified accounts intercepted from putative Russian sources in which the head of the Democratic National Committee allegedly implicates the Hillary Clinton campaign and Lynch in a secret deal to fix the Clinton email investigation.

Narcissist Obama Blames Himself for 2016 Loss

Actually, he may not be wrong.

In classic narcissist Obama fashion, the former POTUS claimed at a DNC fundraiser that Democrats lost 2016 because ‘people were so focused on me’.

Going forward he advised, “Do not wait for the perfect message, don’t wait to feel a tingle in your spine because you’re expecting politicians to be so inspiring and poetic and moving…”

Way to give yourself credit, buddy.

Even when he’s self-deprecating, Obama elevates himself to demi-god status.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Thursday, former president Barack Obama offered his usual narcissistic perspective, this time as to why the Democrats got pounded in the 2016 election: “People were so focused on me.”

Yup, the fact that Hillary Clinton was a terrible candidate, that much of America was sick of the Left’s identity politics, and that Donald Trump ran one of the most energized campaigns in recent years weren’t the prime cause of the Democrats’ woes; it was simply that Democrats couldn’t muster the energy to vote because of Obama himself.
