Trump should ignore Hawaii judge

Host of “Focal Point” on American Family Radio, 1-3pm CT, M-F www.afr.net

An arrogant junior level judge in Hawaii has appointed himself dictator-for-life for America’s immigration policy. He should be ignored by the man with genuine, constitutional, and legal authority over immigration policy, the president of the United States.

Lowly U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson inserted himself without constitutional warrant AGAIN into the immigration debate by rewriting America’s immigration policy, and going over the heads of the justices of the United States Supreme Court in the process. A “district judge,” by definition, has legal authority over, well, a “district.” Somebody forgot to

Here are 24 Republicans who voted to have Uncle Sam pay for transgender surgeries & hormone therapy

Share

By from Biz Pac Review

LVC Note: Congressman Charlie Dent (R-PA) and Ryan Costello were two of the 24!

If you thought a Republican-controlled government might at least rein in some of the excessive, insane, Obama-era social experimentation being imposed on the United States military, you’d be sadly mistaken.

Because on Thursday, the House of Representatives voted 214-209 to reject an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would have banned the Pentagon from paying for surgeries and hormone therapy for mentally disturbed individuals who are confused about what sex they are.

Have You Had Enough of the anti-Trump GOP Establishment Yet?

 

It’s time to fight back.

 

The GOP establishment is in lockstep with the Democratic Party in a no-holds-barred effort to stop Donald Trump and the agenda that we voted for. They own the political system and they are not willing to give up their stranglehold.

 

Well, it is up to us to pry it out of their grubby, little hands. In Pennsylvania, there are seven key obstructionists who are vulnerable in 2018. They have been blocking our agenda at every turn, and therefore, must go.

Of course, this is no easy feat. Anyone with even minimal experience will tell you that it is extremely difficult to unseat

California Democrats Plunge Into ‘Civil War’ Between Moderates and Far-Left

Incumbent Jerry Brown

By /The Federalist Papers ·

 

No one is California dreamin’ in the Democratic party right now.

Instead, the California Democratic moderate and liberal wings are turning on one another in their frustration over failed bills and Donald Trump.

The radicals blame moderates side for their failures.

According to Politico:

Stoked by a contested race for state Democratic Party chair and the failure of a single-payer health care bill, activists are staging protests at the capitol. Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon reported receiving death threats after shelving the health care legislation late last month, and security was tightened at the statehouse after activists disrupted a floor session last week.
