Tom Arnold Vows To Harass Barron Trump At School

Roseanne lost her show and millions of dollars because of her tweet. This will cost this guy nothing at all.

Via MRCTV:

Actor Tom Arnold, Roseanne’s ex-husband, tweeted that he is going to harass the Trumps in several different locations to protest the President’s recent immigration policies.

In a tweet, Arnold says he plans to show up at Barron Trump’s school because he knows Melania will be there to drop him off. He wants to harass the First Lady and her son because that is definitely how we change policy, right?

Federal Court Rules Obama Administration Consumer Bureau Structure Unconstitutional

Did a change in leadership sway the decision?

Via The Hill:

A federal district judge ruled Thursday that the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) violates the Constitution, countering a January ruling from a federal appeals court.

Judge Loretta Preska of the Southern District of New York ruled that the CFPB’s creation as an independent agency with a director that could only be dismissed for wrongdoing was unconstitutional.

In January, the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled that the CFPB’s structure was constitutional, reversing a 2016 verdict issued by a panel of the court’s judges. The appeals court’s initial opinion, written by Judge Brett Kavanaugh, sought to fix the issue by ruling that the CFPB director could be fired at will.

Preska, an appointee of former President George H.W. Bush, concurred with part of the D.C. appellate court’s initial ruling against the CFPB, which held that the agency “is unconstitutionally structured because it is an independent agency that exercises substantial executive power and is headed by a single Director.”

She ruled that the entire section of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act that established the CFPB should be stricken, and she dismissed the CFPB from the case, which was filed in May 2017 by then-New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D). Preska did not issue an order to shut down the bureau.

Acting CFPB Director Mick Mulvaney last month sought to protect the agency’s involvement in its case against RD Legal Funding, which was initiated by his predecessor, Richard Cordray. The suit claims that RD Legal scammed both survivors of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and former NFL players battling the effects of severe concussions out of monetary compensation for their injuries.

While the CFPB is now dismissed from the lawsuit, Preska ruled that New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood (D), who replaced Schneiderman in May, could pursue the case against RD Legal under Dodd-Frank.

Thursday’s ruling raises the likelihood that the Supreme Court will take up the issue of the CFPB’s constitutionality in an upcoming term. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals will also hear a challenge to the CFPB’s constitutionality, and a ruling against the bureau could force the high court to reconcile the conflicting opinions.

The CFPB was created by Dodd-Frank to crack down on predatory lending, enforce consumer protection laws and police the financial services industry against unfair, deceptive and abusive practices.

The bureau was designed and staffed primarily by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) when she served as a special adviser to former President Obama before her 2012 election to the Senate.

Duluth Restaurants Face Backlash For Hosting Fox News

Moonbats flocking to the attack.

Via Twin Cities Com:

It only took 10 minutes before the Uncle Loui’s Cafe Facebook page was bombarded with comments.

The owners had just announced they would be hosting Fox & Friends on Thursday for their morning news segment.

“There were people that were congratulating us and then there were some people that were very angry,” said Matt Berthiaume, the general manager of the cafe. “There were some regulars that come in and now don’t want to eat here anymore, which is unfortunate.”

Berthiaume said hosting the morning news segment is an attempt to increase exposure for the restaurant. Instead, the simple business decision turned their Facebook page into a brouhaha of invective being hurled back and forth.

“We’ll see what happens. There were negative comments and people who had never been in here before were slandering the cleanliness of this restaurant,” Berthiaume said.

Coinciding with President Donald Trump’s visit to Duluth on Wednesday, the network called the local eatery last week hoping to broadcast from the restaurant the day after the rally. Berthiaume said he thinks his mother and Uncle Loui’s owner, Debra Strop, didn’t fully realize how some people would perceive the decision.

“My mom’s so apolitical — she just wants to feed people,” Berthiaume said. “She just wants people to come in. It’s great exposure for our restaurant, which I can’t blame her for. If it wasn’t us, it’d be somebody else.”

Berthiaume and Strop wanted to grow their restaurant’s brand, but instead have spent much of the past few days in damage control mode.

In one instance, Berthiaume said he messaged a man who was saying rude things to people, including his step-grandmother who was supporting the restaurant online.

“That’s the worst part. People just assume,” he said. “No one asks questions like ‘Hey, what’s up?’ or ‘Are you supporting this?’”

FRIDAY OPEN THREAD…

Charles Krauthammer Dead At 68…

RIP

Via Fox News:

Charles Krauthammer, a longtime Fox News contributor, Pulitzer Prize winner, Harvard-trained psychiatrist and best-selling author who came to be known as the dean of conservative commentators, died Thursday. He was 68.

His death had been expected after he wrote a heartbreaking letter to colleagues, friends and viewers on June 8 that said in part “I have been uncharacteristically silent these past ten months. I had thought that silence would soon be coming to an end, but I’m afraid I must tell you now that fate has decided on a different course for me…

“Recent tests have revealed that the cancer has returned. There was no sign of it as recently as a month ago, which means it is aggressive and spreading rapidly. My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live. This is the final verdict. My fight is over.” The letter continued, “I leave this life with no regrets. It was a wonderful life — full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth living.”

Dem Senator Nelson Says They Will Give Trump Money For Wall

Via Free Beacon:

Sen. Bill Nelson (D., Fla.) said Thursday that Democrats would give President Donald Trump funding for the wall he’s long promised to build along the southern border as part of a larger immigration package.

Democrats made the overture before. However, Trump and the Democrats couldn’t reach an agreement in this year’s budget battle when the White House didn’t get its desired wall funding in exchange for protections for “Dreamers,” the term for children of illegal immigrants living in the United States.

With immigration again a hot topic after the uproar over the Trump administration enforcing separation of illegal immigrant parents from their children at the border, Nelson told CNN he wanted “comprehensive immigration reform” that included addressing that problem for good.

Politico Runs Op-Ed From Stephen Miller’s Third Grade Classmate Complaining He Was Untidy

Remember how they went after Romney and tried to turn him into a sociopath?

Via Free Beacon:

Politico Magazine on Friday published an op-ed written by a former classmate of Stephen Miller detailing the quirks of the now-White House policy adviser when he was in third grade.

“I Sat on the Other Side of Stephen Miller’s First Wall,” wrote John Muller, who attended Franklin Elementary School in Santa Monica, California, with Miller, a key architect of the Trump administration’s immigration policies, decades ago.

“It’s hard to say how much a kid’s behavior in third grade can really tell you about the inner workings of his soul,” Muller admited, before plowing on. He wrote that it was difficult to make Miller laugh, and remembered that Miller did not laugh at all at a story he wrote about a chicken.

“Stephen Miller’s First Wall” was evidently a boundary made of white masking tape he used to keep their desks separated, which Muller said “struck me as odd.”

Texas Capital Passes Resolution Directing Police to Avoid Misdemeanor Arrests

Oh, that’ll work. Austin is a liberal haven in an otherwise red state.

Via Free Beacon:

The city council of Austin, Texas, unanimously passed a resolution last week directing police to make fewer arrests for non-violent crimes.

The measure directs police to avoid arrests for misdemeanors, including those for “smoking marijuana, having drug paraphernalia, and taking part in petty theft,” the Los Angeles Times reported.

Greg Casar, an Austin City Councilman, pushed for the resolution because he said the non-violent arrests targeted minorities.

“Poor people of color in our city are over-punished and over-incarcerated,” Casar said. “If people are being arrested less, we can also prevent people from being put in the deportation pipeline.”

ABC Approves ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff Without Roseanne Barr

John Goodman is a great actor, but it’s pretty hard to have a show with the central pivotal character missing.

Via Free Beacon:

ABC announced Thursday that it will go forward with a spinoff of the popular sitcom “Roseanne,” only without the eponymous character.

The show’s star, Roseanne Barr, was let go and the show was canceled abruptly three weeks ago following a racist tweet by Barr, but ABC said in a release that the network is starting a new show about the Conner family without her.

Barr stoked outrage on social media after she compared former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett to an ape, and she will not be involved in the new show, tentatively titled “The Conners.”

“Roseanne Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in the new series,” ABC said.

Hillary Clinton’s Group Hauls in $1 Million Off Border ‘Humanitarian Crisis’

And not one penny would actually go to helping the situation that was effectively created by the groups that are getting the money. It’s the very groups supposedly agitating for kids who caused the legal problem causing the separation.

Via Free Beacon:

Hillary Clinton has pulled in more than $1 million in donations after seeking money for her “resistance” group to help with family separations at the the U.S. border that she claimed would be doled out to a number of other left-leaning organizations.

“What’s happening to families at the border right now is horrific: Nursing infants ripped away from their mothers. Parents told their toddlers are being taken to bathe or play, only to realize hours later that they aren’t coming back. Children incarcerated in warehouses and, according to more than one account, kept in cages,” Clinton wrote Monday in a fundraising email to supporters. “This is a moral and humanitarian crisis. Everyone of us who has ever held a child in their arms, and every human being with a sense of compassion and decency should be outraged.”

Swalwell Defends Hecklers: ‘The President Has to Be Confronted’

So when is he going to confront Obama, you know, the guy who actually put kids in cages? These are not just random people promoting things like surrounding the DHS Secretary, these are lawmakers. Would they like it to happen to them if they push this nonsense?

Via Free Beacon:

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D., Calif.) on Thursday defended recent protests and downplayed crass behavior by those on the left, blaming President Donald Trump for their behavior.

CNN host Erin Burnett brought up a slew of “vile” acts, including hecklers forcing DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen out of a restaurant, House members screaming at Trump, and actor Peter Fonda’s offensive tweet. Fonda wrote, “we should rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles,” and later apologized, but Swalwell blamed Trump for creating this much “emotion in the country.”

“When you separate a baby from its breastfeeding mother and put that child in a cage, you’re going to see emotion in this country,” Swalwell said.

He added that he has received messages asking him to do something, and he expressed dissatisfaction that the House Judiciary Committee was instead looking at Hillary Clinton’s email scandal in light of the inspector general’s recent report. That report found bias at the FBI during the investigation of Clinton during her time as secretary of state.

TIME Magazine’s Shocking Cover Is A Total Lie. No Wonder Americans Don’t Trust The Media.

We brought you the father’s story yesterday, but this was how the media used it, even putting the ‘separated’ girl (who was never separated) on the cover of TIME. Mother who put the kid in danger, not a real asylum case and who left the rest of her kids and husband.

Via Daily Wire:

This week, TIME magazine featured a picture of a crying illegal immigrant child on its cover. The child was supposedly separated from her parents; over her looms Donald Trump, smugly staring down at her.

There’s only one problem: the cover is total bull. It’s not just total bull because Trump hasn’t implemented a newly-developed policy of separating children from parents – that’s an operation of law under the Flores settlement as modified by a 2016 Ninth Circuit court ruling. It’s bull because this particular child wasn’t separated from her mother, her mother wasn’t fleeing persecution but did falsely claim asylum, her mother did put the child in danger, and Trump was targeted by the media for treating this mother and child exactly the same way the Obama administration would have.

Here’s the real story.

The little girl is from Honduras. She wasn’t separated from her mother; she was crying because her mother was crossing illegally into the United States and the little girl was “tired and thirsty,” according to Border Patrol.

Military Sending 21 Attorneys To Help Prosecute Border Cases

Fast track to deportation.

Via Stars and Stripes:

The Defense Department has approved sending 21 attorneys experienced in criminal trials to southern border states to assist the Justice Department with immigrant cases, according to information from both departments.

Last month, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis authorized the group of lawyers to serve as special assistant U.S. attorneys as requested by the Justice Department, said Army Lt. Col. Jamie Davis, a Defense Department spokesman. The attorneys will assist the Justice Department for no more than 179 days, starting as soon as this month.

Both civilian and military attorneys will serve at these requested locations: San Diego and El Centro, Calif.; Yuma, Ariz.; Las Cruces, N.M., and Corpus Christi, Del Rio, El Paso and Laredo, Texas. Some are already on the ground and working in California with the expectation of more to follow, said Kelly Thornton, spokeswoman for the Office of the U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of California. Other districts declined to comment or said the attorneys have not arrived.

As special assistants, the attorneys are expected to assist in prosecuting misdemeanor improper entry and felony illegally entry cases, said Devin O’Malley, a DOJ spokesman. If these cases go to trial, the attorneys could serve as co-counsel with an assistant U.S. attorney.

This request is intended to fill a staffing shortage until the Justice Department can hire 35 new assistant U.S. attorneys to serve along the southwest border that Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced in May.

Hundreds Of Separated Children Have Quietly Been Sent To New York

De Blasio may want to rethink cooperating with ICE.

Via NY Times:

Under cover of darkness and in the custody of the federal government, migrant children have been coming in waves to New York, taken from their parents after crossing the southern border.

Even as President Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday ending his administration’s policy of separating parents and children who have illegally crossed the border, the crisis was already spreading to a city some 2,000 miles away.

Speaking outside Cayuga Centers in Harlem, one of a group of social service agencies in the state that contract with the federal government to take in unaccompanied minors, Mayor Bill de Blasio on Wednesday afternoon said 350 children had come through the center and that 239 of them were currently in Cayuga’s care; the agency is not residential, but places children in temporary foster care and runs day programs.

The children included a 9-year-old boy from Honduras who had come alone on a bus from Texas, and a child as young as 9 months old, Mr. de Blasio said, as he issued a scathing rebuke of the Trump administration.

“How is it possible that none of us knew that there were 239 kids right here in our own city?” he asked. “How is the federal government holding back that information from the people of this city and holding back the help these kids could need?”

Mr. de Blasio said the federal government would not tell city officials exactly how many children were sent to New York or where they were being housed. The office of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said the state also did not know the exact number.

The consulates in New York for Honduras and El Salvador said they, too, were unclear how many of their young citizens were in the city, and of how to reach their relatives back home.

Moonbat Alyssa Milano Offers To Foster Migrant Children Brought To NYC

Her Los Angeles mansion has to pass inspection first.

Via NY Post:

Actress Alyssa Milano wants to take in one of the hundreds of immigrant children housed in foster care facilities in Harlem, who were torn from their parents under President Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.

The native of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, wrote to the CEO of Cayuga Centers, Edward Myers Hayes, on Thursday, offering to help, according to a letter obtained by The Post.

“Based on New York City news reports detailing a covert, dark-of-night transport of children it appears your organization has stepped up to temporarily care for these poor souls. I, along with others — while fervently against the White House policy that put these children in your care — acknowledge your efforts,” wrote Milano, 45.

“With this, I write to offer my assistance. Like many people touched by this tragedy, I have thought about ways I can help,” she added. “As a mother, I know that children need to be reunited with their parents in the United States more than anything.”

The “Charmed” screen star and mom of two said she was willing to offer children “my home and my heart; my love and whatever stability I can give them until they can be reunited with a parent.”

“I will register with the appropriate authorities so I can bring some of these children into my home and foster them during this time of need,” she offered in the letter. “Afterwards, I will help ensure they get the help they need to fight their cases, stay, and win. I am sure this is something many other Americans would consider a moral and patriotic duty, as well.”[…]

Milano, who lives in Los Angeles, ended her note with: “Mi casa es la casa de ellos” — “My home is their home.”

WWII POW Gets Surprise Diploma 75 Years After Leaving High School To Join Army

Via Fox News:

Seventy-five years after withdrawing from high school to serve as a U.S. Army soldier during World War II, Vito Trause had one last (surprise) mission to complete.

Dubbed “Operation Vito,” the 93-year-old veteran and prisoner of war was awarded a high school diploma at Becton Regional High School in East Rutherford, New Jersey, Wednesday night.

Trause stepped up to the plate on Nov. 30, 1943, when he left school (formerly known as East Rutherford High School) “to go to war, to join the service, to fight for his country,” Becton Regional Principal Dario Sforza told Fox News. He was supposed to graduate in 1945.

When Sforza learned Trause never received his high school diploma, he wanted to surprise the man — who he called the “town hero” — with one of his own.

“Instead of spending time in English class during his senior year, [Trause] was captured by the Germans as a prisoner of war,” Sforza said, adding that the veteran worked two jobs throughout his life to support his wife and two daughters.
