Praise for Trump

The rumor is that the Trump administration had been negotiating with Kennedy for months about retiring, and there was an assurance that Kavanaugh, his former law clerk, would be picked to replace him. If this is true, a brilliant move for Trump, who gets to appoint a new Justice before elections in November.

I also praise Trump for sticking with Kavanaugh despite a campaign from both the mainstream media, and anti-abortion extremists on the right, to trick him into picking someone else.

There are complaints by some that Kavanaugh is a “Washington insider” who has close ties to the previous Republican administration. In that, Kavanaugh’s background is a lot like Antonin Scalia, who worked for the Nixon and Ford administrations, and who also served on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. Kavanaugh needs to be judged on his record of conservative jurisprudence and not on who he previously worked for, which really is a plus and not a minus. Clarence Thomas was also a Washington insider. David Souter was a Washington outsider. I’m so glad that Trump wasn’t tricked into nominating Amy Coney Barrett who felt to me like a Souter except on the abortion issue.

  1. This was on sailer’s site a while ago. I find it hard to believe that he got Kennedy to do anything he wouldn’t have done anyway. Trump doesn’t seem to have that in him.

      • When mainstream pundits openly talk about the widespread fraud in asylum claims, it will be time. I don’t think Americans have any idea how many ask for asylum, how many receive asylum, and how much financial assistance people granted asylum get. I don’t think they understand the basis for asylum claims. It’s always been considered rude to even discuss or suggest that there is fraud in the system.

      • Noone needs to commit fraud they just don’t show up for their hearings. If Trump needs to establish that he doesn’t have any ethnoreligioracial animus to invoke his authority to bar classes of aliens, he can truthfully just argue that it’s impossible to properly adjudicate claims with the current funding and regulations and that suspending asylum is the only way to avoid releasing people into the US.

  2. If he hates immigrants and isn’t obsessed with abortions, he’s good.

    Immigration is what slavery was in the 1850s. Nothing matters except immigration. That cult member woman who adopted Hatians is subhuman and people like her are exactly the type of people that we have been purging from the party.

    If you don’t hate immigrants, you are not welcome in the Republican party.

    • Things are looking good so far. If we pick up a few Senate seats we can pass the Goodlatte Bill next year and end chain migration. In the meantime, Trump needs to turn AMLO’s election as an excuse to declare martial law at the border and put Mexico on the travel ban list. A ceremonial scrubbing of the Emma Lazarus poem from the Statue of Liberty will also be a nice touch but we will save that for his second term.

      • Same here. “If you don’t hate immigrants, you are not welcome in the Republican party” is pretty much what liberals believe; i.e., a caricature of conservative beliefs. Over on the SDMB, liberals routinely say things like “the Republican party platform boils down to explicit, unequivocal hatred of everyone who isn’t a rich, white, cisgendered, Christian heterosexual male.”

    • Immigrants are treated like saints in this country and probably Europe too. It seems like illegals are even more revered than legal immigrants. I am sick of them both. It’s like we can’t function as a country without them and we almost have to thank them for immigrating. There are lefties and righties that hate white Americans but love the 3rd world immigrants.

    • Yes. Mass immigration is changing our countries permanently. It’s THE issue. If I were an American, I would have voted Trump for that single issue. No other issues have a such huge (and near impossible to reverse) effect.

      From what I’ve read at the WSJ (I’ve been reading it for years) the business establishment loves immigrants. The editorial section, separate completely from the news part, is definitely Republican.

    • I do so hope you’re right g, and am very pleased you continue to post here. But the outlook for UK politics is extremely murky. In my view, the PM is so virulently pro-EU that she would be quite happy to take the government down with her if she can and see a pro-EU Labour government replace her. Also there’s no certainty at all that Boris would win a run-off (in fact I think it more likely that another Remainer such as Jeremy Hunt would win, as the parliamentary Conservative party is majority Remain). And the civil service under Olly Robins is rabidly pro-EU and anti-Trump. Installing a government and its administration machinery that respects the democratic mandate is even harder here than it has been for President Trump.

  4. I’m so glad that Trump wasn’t tricked into nominating Amy Coney Barrett who felt to me like a Souter except on the abortion issue.

    It’s unlikely should be a Souter if she clerked with Scalia. The risk with her is that, given a lack of a voting record, she could be an anti-abortion Sandra Day O’Connor.

    If Trump wants a Conservative woman for Ginsburg’s seat he would be better with someone with a strongly rightist voting record like Joan Larsen.

  6. Meanwhile, over at NRO, in-house putz David French wistfully bemoans the lost opportunity to appoint Amy Coney Barrett. While I admire her for having four kids of her own, and taking on three special adoptees–an in your face gesture to the sterile Left–I can’t help but think that Dianne Feinstein was right to confront her with “the dogma lives within you”. That Catholic dogma is pro-life and good on social issues, but reflects an abominable understanding of economics. My former NJ Rep Chris Smith, now in the House 38 years, is a good example of that, and the current Pope has put this “dogma” on steroids.

    The late Michael Novak and Fr. John Sirica were both devout Catholics who preached about the need for democratic capitalism to lift up the poor, but sadly no one ever paid attention to them.

        Seeing as the Democrats had to weekend at Bernies a few of their old fossils onto the floor to get the votes they really had none to spare- so the fact that is was explicitly represented as not a tax increase was pivotal in it passing.

      • Obamacare sucks.My obamacare compliant policy, the cheapest available in Maryland, is about $550/month. I used to pay less than $300 pre-obamacare.

        It would be better (cheaper) if the governemnt took the $1.2+T/year* spent on medicaid and medicare, and just gave it to hospitals in exchange for eliminating medical billing for citizens receiving non-elective care.

        *Total Expenses for All U.S. Registered Hospitals is $991,531,841,000. https://www.aha.org/statistics/fast-facts-us-hospitals

  8. OT I do some committee work (on AI) with a friendly Oxford-educated liberal Englishman, who chairs the meetings. Inevitably, perhaps, the committee members tentatively virtue signal their liberal, establishment views of the world regarding Brexit and Donald Trump during the meetings. The chairman is known to hate Trump. So I asked him in a bilateral email why that was so. His reply, consisting of about a dozen separate points concerning Trump’s defective personality, behaviour and domestic/international policies, and the risks they posed to the world economy and international peace, was truly breathtaking in the hatred expressed. I imagine his feelings are reciprocated amongst the liberal establishment middle classes of Europe, across which he travels. I had not realised how deep the hatred is for Trump, and how any concerns for the negative effects of mass immigration from the Third World are seen as racist. (The genocidal attack on Christians in the Middle East for example is dismissed as scaremongering.) I’m sure BBC journalists for example have similar views, but they are only given full vent in private dinner parties etc. What this implies however is that we really are engaged in a life or death struggle for upholding the values of western civilisation. And there is no hope whatsoever for rational discussion with our opponents. If the other side wins in Europe, we’re finished. Fortunately, Europeans are waking up to the threat. But wresting power from the establishment is really hard, as Brexit shows.

    • A solidarity for those who love money and proles and wonder why certain nations only benefit a few:

      The establishment compensates these idiots in law enforcement accordingly so their co-fellows won’t be able to rile up. It’s simple as that.

    • ” and how any concerns for the negative effects of mass immigration from the Third World are seen as racist. ”
      England sounds well & truly cucked – and fucked. Your upper classes are simply barking mad.

      BUT – there is hope in Sweden. A friend recently traveled there for business & got her liberal eyes opened. Everyone is talking about immigration there, and it is generally admitted that they fucked up their country. Immigration is now massively unpopular and no one bothers to hide it.

      In the grand scheme of things UK is more important than Sweden but you gotta start somewhere and if ultra left Sweden is now sour on immigration who knows what will happen next?

  9. no one with half a brain truly believes Roe vs Wade will be overturned, including the democrats, but they have to put on this little show so they can claim they protected a women’s right to a legal abortion. the stupidity of it is hard to watch/listen to

    • Roe v. Wade will in fact be overturned before Trump leaves office

    • I believe that Thomas would definitely overturn it, and so would Amy Coney Barrett. Then they’d have to convince the other three conservative justices. (Yes, I know, she wasn’t nominated, just a hypothetical.)

      I don’t think that Kavanaugh is gung ho about overturning Roe v. Wade, but who knows?

  10. The CTH is a brilliant website for understanding the detail of what’s going on in US politics. The attached video is a must-see imho about how President Trump destroys the hypocritical German “free riding” policies wrt NATO and meeting its climate change obligations. A recent survey of the (cucked) German people found that they were the least willing in Europe to support a NATO ally being attacked by Russia through military assistance, and yet they expect the US people to fully fund their defence! And they promote their own economy by sourcing all their energy needs from Russia, while expecting their competitors to invest in expensive “green” energy! And Merkel and her Brussels allies are trying to make the UK a subservient nation in terms of the Brexit negotiations. She really is an evil woman.

    • The more likely reality is that David Cameron was trying to help the FBI find stuff on Trump.

  11. O/t – Michael Cohen might be a prole, but any prole who lives in Midtown Manhattan and soon in Tribeca, isn’t Lion’s type of prole that he usually describes in his blog. Basically anyone who lives in Manhattan with money, doesn’t need to be labeled as a SWPL or a Prole. They all live in the same zipcodes.

    The average person living in Manhattan is neither reading this blog nor Fussy’s class markers. Every young woman gets tingled by a wealthy guy who has a luxury residence in Manhattan and this is all that matters when it comes to male status.

  12. Peter Strzok and Democrats say that the fact FBInand agencies didn’t leak Russian probe was a proof of their being impartial. I think it’s a proof they wanted Trump to commit a faux pas while they were spying on him and trying to trap him with people they had squeezed like Papadopoulos. It surely was an international operation settled by Obama. All messages of Strzok point into that direction.

  13. It turns out that those who said Trump’s presidency would be significant were right.
