The full 9th Circuit Court may be set to re-hear the Trump case. Apparently, one of the judges demanded it. I’ve never heard of such a thing – the losers in cases before a panel often request a full hearing, but I’ve never heard of one of the judges of the court requesting it. Something is up – I gotta think that this judge isn’t wasting everyone’s time: shouldn’t it be likely that the judge at least thinks there’s a court majority to overturn the 3 judge panel? Perhaps enough judges figure that service to Progressive causes is all well and good, but a judge deciding immigration policy is a step too far? Stay tuned.
Socialism in action:
Biology student Luis Sibira stumbled across the first set of gory remains last November: eight pink flamingos, their breasts and torsos sliced out, leaving their heads, spindly legs and vivid feathers scattered across the marshy ground at Las Peonias Lagoon in western Venezuela…
But this isn’t simple poaching, he said. Sibira and other investigators from Zulia University, a public university in Maracaibo, are convinced that the protected birds have become the latest victims of Venezuela’s growing hunger crisis. People have become so desperate, he said, that they are butchering and eating flamingos.
There is some evidence that Venezuelans are chowing down on cats and dogs, as well. Ask a western Socialist about it, and he’ll just say they still haven’t quite done socialism right…and that this is all our fault, anyways.
German Chancellor Merkel is speeding up deportations – because making nice-nice with Euro-weenies is all well and good, but she’s heading for electoral defeat later this year unless she changes course.
Excellent article by Robert Stacy McCain on how social misfits – often from distressed family backgrounds – become fodder for radicals who want to destroy whatever system happens to be in place at the time. I call this the Uselessly Educated Syndrome – people who have obtained education which is of limited utility who then go on to demand radical social change because if they can’t fit into normal life, then normal life will just have to go. People like this have been pestering civilization ever since it developed enough surplus wealth to give rise to an educated but idle class of people. Do you want to know why the Roman Empire endured for centuries after it’s peak while the British Empire was gone less than 100 years after it peaked? Rome created engineers – Britain created lawyers.
Sanctuary cities are starting to cave to Administration pressure.
Con man gets suckered – Sid Blumenthal, a Clinton functionary, got suckered in by some fake commercials about a non-existent New York City mayoral candidacy for Donald Trump’s father. I keep telling you guys: our Progressive opponents are simply not the sharpest knives in the drawer. A few of them are wicked smart, but most of them are just rote repeating what the smart one’s tell them to say.
V the K has an excellent idea. None of you better spill the beans on this one.
