Mukasey Op-ed Should Strike Fear in Democrats
[PJ] If I were a Democrat, I would be afraid, I would be very afraid, after reading former Attorney General Michael Mukasey's Monday WSJ oped: "John Durham's Ukrainian Leads." The subtitle is "What the prosecutor has found may be quite different from what the Democrats are looking for."

Mukasey begins:
Americans often boast that we are a nation of laws, but for the moment laws appear to play a decidedly secondary role in the drama we are living in and‐hopefully‐through.
True enough, but the nub of the article, which returns us to the rule of law, comes further on:

"it appears that Ukrainian officials who backed the Clinton campaign provided information that generated the investigation of Mr. Manafort—acts that one Ukrainian court has said violated Ukrainian law and 'led to interference in the electoral processes of the US in 2016 and harmed the interests of Ukraine as a state.'”

Poll: 7-in-10 Mississippians Want Bosses Prosecuted for Hiring Illegals
[Breitbart] Nearly seven-in-10 Mississippi residents said they want the chicken plant employers who allegedly hired hundreds of illegal aliens over Americans prosecuted for doing so, a new survey finds.

In August, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents conducted the largest workplace raid in more than a decade across five food processing plants in Mississippi, netting the arrests of 680 illegal aliens. That same day, though, ICE officials said they released about 300 of the illegal workers back into the U.S. on "humanitarian grounds," while more than 200 of the illegal workers had prior criminal records. Prosecutors say many of the illegal workers stole Americans’ identities to work at the plants.

Despite federal prosecutors alleging that employers were fully aware that they hired hundreds of illegal aliens to work at their plants, none of the owners or businesses have had charges filed against them.

Mississippi residents overwhelmingly support prosecuting the employers for hiring illegal aliens over Americans, telling Millsaps College/Chism Strategies pollsters that not just the illegal aliens, but the employers should be prosecuted.

More than 68 percent of Mississippi residents said the employers who hired the illegal aliens arrested in the ICE raid should be prosecuted, with only about 15.5 percent opposing their prosecution. Another 16.4 percent of residents said they were unsure of what to do.

General not allowed to take emotional support mistress on deployment
[Duffelblog - Satire, Herb] JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO, Texas ‐ A heartbreaking scene unfolded today at an Air Mobility Command terminal when staff told a general he would not be able to deploy with his emotional support mistress.

As the general waited to board a plane with the young captain sitting on his lap, an airman working at the gate asked for a note from a military doctor and the captain's immunization records. When the general could not produce the required paperwork, the general was informed she would have to leave the aircraft..

"He really lost it when we told him she would not be able to accompany him," said Senior Airman C.K. Blocker. "We gave them a few minutes to say goodbye, and there was a fair amount of heavy petting before we took her away. But I'll admit, even I teared up a little when the old man told us they hadn't been apart since she was just a young second lieutenant."

"But, rules are rules."

While mistresses are not commonly prescribed for emotional support, passenger terminal staff agree that they are not the most bizarre service animals.

Please America, take Meghan Markle back
h/t Instapundit
[Spectator.us] The great triumph of recent American politics is for the people of your fine country to have elected as president a man who is the precise embodiment of what supercilious Europeans think Americans are really like. Pig-ignorant, arrogant, jingoistic, contemptuous of foreigners, loud-mouthed, badly dressed and irredeemably bumptious. So consuming is the European antipathy toward Donald Trump ‐ he’s never read a book! He eats steak with ketchup! ‐ that it afflicts leading politicians across our continent, people who would be better advised to button it a while and show a little bit of diplomacy to the leader of the free world. But they can’t: the contempt always bleeds through.

This is one reason why I have a little bit of time for this gift you Americans have bestowed upon the world, Mr Trump. He enrages the liberal cretinati ‐ in other words, all the right people. And I sincerely hope you elect him once again.

There are other gifts you have given us which, frankly, I would much rather had been FedExed to the other side of the world as the consequence of some human error or computer glitch. Pre-eminent among these is Meghan Markle. Thank you very much for the thought ‐ but would you now please take her back? We’ve had enough and the maintenance charges impinge heavily upon such a small satrapy as the UK. We will of course chip in for the flights ‐ by private jet, naturally, although Elton John will personally pay for the carbon offset.

Britain expresses ‘regret' for killing Maori 250 years ago
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) ‐ The British government on Wednesday expressed "regret" that British explorers killed some of the first indigenous Maori they met 250 years ago, but stopped short of issuing a full apology.

British High Commissioner Laura Clarke met with Maori tribal leaders in the town of Gisborne as New Zealand marked the anniversary of Captain James Cook and the crew of his ship Endeavour arriving in 1769.

Clarke’s words held historic significance but fell short of the full apology that some had sought from the British royal family.

Soon after Cook and his crew arrived, the sailors feared they were under attack after encountering Maori armed with weapons. But many scholars now believe Maori were likely only issuing a ceremonial challenge.
Never come to a gunfight armed with a ceremonial challenge, amirite?
The sailors shot and killed an important leader, Te Maro, and over the following days killed eight more Maori before a Tahitian priest managed to mediate between the sides.

The British High Commission said the exact wording of Clarke’s speech to Maori leaders would remain private, but that she would acknowledge the pain of those first encounters and extend her sympathy to the descendants of those killed.

Britain has also been returning some historic artifacts taken by Cook’s crew, including canoe paddles.

Ukraine Set Up: Three Very Important Questions
[News With Views] The whole world has been in a frenzy the past week over what is so obviously a set up to overturn a legitimately elected president of these United States of America.

The media feeding frenzy for each one of these phony scandals keeps growing like bad weeds. If we thought the prostitute media ‐ an extension of the Democratic/Communist Party USA ‐ was bad for the Russia collusion hoax, then get Kavanaugh, this latest manufactured set up has those whores running lies 24/7. Like this headline on Yahoo:

"Unlike the Mueller report, much of the evidence in the growing Ukraine controversy that has fueled the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry is clearly in public view."

There is NO evidence, only hearsay.

The DemoRATS are running out of time for the 2020 election. Their stable of presidential candidates are nothing but socialists and some full-blown communists the American people don’t want ‐ except those who care NOTHING for this country or the U.S. Constitution. Only what gets into their bank account.

NWVs readers are involved Americans who seek the truth. I know millions of Americans don’t believe the bull manure being shoveled by the gross tons. Thankfully, I believe millions no longer believe the so-called mainstream media or Democrats who have clearly demonstrated for almost three years their only goal is to remove Donald Trump.

The hysteria by Democrat presidential candidates, the Hollywood crowd and sitting members of the U.S. Congress is not only unjustified, those partisan fools all need straight jackets. They truly have become dangerous to our republic.

I’ve worked my way through a hundred articles and commentaries about this latest what I consider sedition. Like millions of Americans I read the transcript of the phone call between President Trump and Ukraine’s newly elected president.

Soetoro Appointed Black Robed Tyrant Blocks Ga. Abortion Bill - Human Heartbeat Not Enough Evidence of Human Life
[Free Beacon] A federal judge blocked Georgia's heartbeat bill from going into effect, striking a blow against the pro-life movement that has seen significant legislative achievements repeatedly blunted by the courts.

District judge Steve C. Jones granted a preliminary injunction that prevents the state from enforcing a new law limiting abortions after a baby's heartbeat is detected, which typically occurs at six weeks. Jones said the bill potentially violates the privacy rights of women in the state. The ruling will preserve the state's existing abortion regulations until the court weighs the merits of the law.

Governor Brian Kemp (R.) signed the bill, dubbed the LIFE Act, into law in May. The law granted personhood rights to unborn children and banned most abortions with exceptions granted for cases of rape, incest, and health of the mother. Kemp said the law protects "those who cannot speak for themselves" and "reaffirms Georgia's commitment to life and the rights of the innocent unborn." The law was scheduled to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2020.

Lawyers for the Americans Civil Liberties Union challenged the bill on behalf of pro-abortion groups and requested Jones make a decision before the end of the year. Attorney Susan Talcott Camp argued any law that prohibits abortion before the point of fetal viability violates the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which struck down state restrictions on abortion, as well as the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey decision, which declared that state laws inhibiting abortion access were unconstitutional.

#2  Assuming this gets appealed, and SCOTUS takes it up: Don't expect Kavanaugh to vote in to strike down Roe, or to uphold these state-level restrictions.

#4  Planned Parenthood, urban crime, and illegal narcotics, are population control tools. The zoological term would be culling the herd.
