Fox News reported:
In a remarkable public rebuke, President Trump … called on Supreme Court justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg to recuse themselves from any cases involving his administration over their past comments.
Trump has proven in the past that he is not bashful about criticizing justices, but he seemed to be particularly bothered by a recent dissent by Sotomayor hinting that conservative-leaning justices have a bias (in favor of) Trump.
The president’s tweet … accused Sotomayor of attempting to shame other justices to vote with her.
Sotomayor, who was nominated by President Obama in 2009, issued the blistering dissent Friday after a ruling in the case of Wolf v. Cook County.
The case dealt with the Trump administration’s expansion of situations where the government can deny visas to non-citizens looking to enter the U.S.
Sotomayor wrote that the conservative Court majority is “putting a thumb on the scale in favor of” the Trump administration.
This criticism from Trump is more great stuff from the president. Yet Sotomayor accused the conservative justices of doing exactly what liberals have been doing for decades.
In fact conservative judges are vastly more likely than liberals are to avoid political bias and consider the legality of their rulings according to the Constitution. We have seen Republican-appointed Supreme Court justices dissent with conservative thought on many cases including two major cases in recent memory – justice Kennedy on gay marriage and chief justice Roberts on Obamacare.
We even have seen Trump-appointed justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh already siding with the liberals on numerous occasions. On the other hand, we never see the liberals voting with the conservatives on the really big cases.
Good for president Trump for calling out Sotomayor. This type of rhetoric from a judge is unacceptable. He also called out Ginsburg who criticized him repeatedly before the 2016 election. NBC News reported on July 13, 2016:
Ginsburg has slammed Trump three times in the last week.
“He has no consistency about him,” Ginsburg told CNN late Monday. “He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. … How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that.”
She told the New York Times in an interview published online Sunday, “I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president…For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.” She told Times reporter Adam Liptak that it reminded her of something her husband, Martin, who died in 2010, would have said: “Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand.”
When asked by Associated Press reporter Mark Sherman about a Trump victory, Ginsburg said: “I don’t want to think about that possibility.”
This is outrageous yet there have been no calls for Ginsburg to resign or to recuse herself. But if a conservative justice said such things about Obama there would be an endless media firestorm to this very day.
These cases demonstrate yet another glaring double-standard among liberals.
Now here is more great news about our federal courts. As president Trump approaches his 200th appointee to the federal bench, Madison Dibble at The Washington Examiner wrote:
President Trump and the Republican-controlled Senate have taken the reliably liberal 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and tilted it to the Right.
The 9th Circuit is the largest circuit court, covering many of the West Coast states, including California, Hawaii, and Arizona. The court just received its 10th judge from the Trump administration, effectively changing the court’s liberal makeup into a more ideologically diverse lineup. In just three years, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Trump joined forces to place more justices to lifetime appointments on the 9th Circuit than President Barack Obama did in his eight years in office.
… Democratic-appointed judges still hold a slight majority in the circuit, with 16 appointees compared with 13 Republican appointees, but 9th Circuit Judge Milan Smith Jr., an appointee of George W. Bush, said Trump’s judicial picks were about to take over.
This is really good news. For decades we conservatives have referred to the 9th Circuit as the “9th Circus” since it has been so outlandishly liberal. But president Trump is addressing this imbalance, just as he is addressing all of the imbalances imposed on America by the left.
And just to show how the Trump reforms are working, The Gateway Pundit reported:
In an unusual ruling for the hyper-liberal court, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday upheld rules set in place by President Trump’s administration that ban the use of taxpayer money for family planning clinics that refer women for abortions.
The … ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned previous decisions issued by judges in three other courts in Washington, Oregon and California. The administration’s changes to to the rules were allowed to take effect while the federal government appealed the earlier rulings.
So Much for ‘Global Warming’…
Two people were killed and dozens were injured after whiteout conditions along a highway near Montreal, Canada triggered a huge pileup involving 200 vehicles. The pileup occurred in an area where heavy winds come off the St. Lawrence River, creating blizzard conditions. Two snow removal operations took place in the area shortly before the pileup, but strong winds blew the snow back onto the highway.
So once again, we have proof that ‘global warming’ as portrayed by environmentalists is a myth. There are thousands of such proofs every single year all over the earth. In fact ‘warming’ is a good thing for mankind. This Montreal pileup would have been prevented, two lives would have been saved, dozens of injuries would have been prevented, along with millions in damage to all of the wrecked cars if there were less snow or no snow.
Tens of thousands of car accidents, and thousands of deaths, would be prevented every year in the US if the climate were warmer. Thousands of slip-and-fall injuries too. And roof collapses. And house fires from woodburning stoves. And heart attacks from shoveling snow. And we would see hundreds of millions less in costs for cities and towns for plowing, sanding and salting the snowy and icy roads.
‘Warming’ also would increase crop production and food supplies while significantly reducing oil and natural gas consumption for heating homes and businesses around the world.
‘Warming’ is not the unprecedented crisis that the “greenies” claim. The earth has warmed naturally in three separate periods. In the Medieval Warm Period, the Roman Warm Period and the Minoan Warm Period, the earth was vastly hotter than today for a total of 1,500 years(!) And all three periods occurred long before the burning of coal, oil and natural gas on which ‘greenies’ blame the alleged current warming.
Gays Involved in High Proportions of Child Molestation
The Boy Scouts of America recently declared bankruptcy in response to thousands of sexual molestation cases.
We know that 100% of the molestation cases in the Boy Scouts were homosexual; until just recently all of the Scout leaders were male and all of the Scouts were male. In the Catholic church scandal, it is reported that 80% of the molestation cases involved male priests and young boys. Yet homosexual males are about 1% of the US population, and so their rates of perversion are high.
In both the Catholic church cases and the Boy Scout cases we never hear the word “gay” or “homosexual” in relation to the molestation. This is part of a media coverup of what is really going on.
Conservative columnist Ann Coulter recently wrote a column called Honey, We Molested the Kids!, which is a reference to the famous comedy movie Honey, We Shrunk the Kids!
Here are excerpts from Coulter’s column with a Nikitas3.com comment after each excerpt.
Coulter writes: The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) have long been on the left’s hate list. Any organization that has the temerity to train young men in the virtues of integrity, patriotism and self-reliance is putting itself on the fighting side of liberals!
At the 2000 Democratic National Convention, a little group of Boy Scouts took the stage as part of the opening ceremony — and were promptly booed by the delegates.
For decades, the BSA has fended off lawsuits demanding that they embrace the holy trinity of G’s: girls, gays and godless atheists. (If only it had occurred to the plaintiffs to start their own organizations! They could have given them names like “The Girl Scouts.”)
Why would any liberal want to join an organization that was, according to them, sexist, Bible-thumping and bigoted? They didn’t. The lawsuits were kill shots.
For the left, what’s not to hate about the Boy Scouts? Their oath is: “On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.”
Nearly 200 NASA astronauts were Boy Scouts. The great outdoorsman, Teddy Roosevelt, was such a BSA booster than he was made the one and only “Chief Scout Citizen,” a scout for life.
A Louis Harris & Associates study in 1996 found that men who had been scouts placed a higher value on honesty than those who had not.
Nikitas3.com comment: All true. Liberals hate the Scouts as they seem to hate anyone who works hard, is honest and abides by the law.
Coulter writes: From the beginning, BSA has had to deal with child molesters eagerly signing up to go camping with 13-year-old boys in isolated areas away from all observation.
Within a decade of its 1910 founding, the BSA began keeping internal files on “ineligible” scouting volunteers, known as “the perversion files.”
Scout leaders were not to be alone with boys and, starting in 1988, all adult applicants were subjected to aggressive background screening. The organization promptly removed any scout leaders based on mere suspicion and alerted law enforcement in about a third of the cases.
Nonetheless, between 1970 and 1991, up to .04% of Boy Scouts may have been molested. That’s about 2,000 out of several million boys.
Given all of this, what sort of escaped mental patient would demand that the Boy Scouts admit openly gay scout leaders?
Yes, we know most gays aren’t child molesters. How could we not? It’s part of our secular catechism, along with the one about most Muslims not being terrorists and most immigrants not being criminals.
Nikitas3.com comment: Yessiree. Homosexuals do indeed have sexual proclivities in much higher proportion than the rest of the population just as muslims commit terror at higher rates than Christians even though terrorists are small percentages of the muslim population. But that doesn’t change the facts.
Coulter writes: Back in 1980, when a gay guy lost his lawsuit against BSA for dropping him as a scout leader, Wells Fargo, the United Way of San Francisco, Levi Strauss and the Bank of America cut off funding to the organization. San Francisco and Oakland schools prohibited the scouts from using their facilities on weekdays.
After the Supreme Court’s disturbingly narrow 5-4 decision in 2000 holding that the Boy Scouts could not be forced to admit gay scout leaders, the Times denounced the decision in an editorial, calling the court’s ruling “one of its lowest moments of the term.”
The following month, the Times’ “ethicist,” Randy Cohen, advised a reader to pull her son out of the Cub Scouts, saying it was “the ethical thing to do.” The “ethicist” explained: “Just as one is honor bound to quit an organization that excludes African-Americans, so you should withdraw from scouting as long as it rejects homosexuals.”
Also in response to the Supreme Court’s decision, Chase Manhattan Bank, Textron Inc. and dozens more United Way chapters withdrew millions of dollars in contributions. More cities dropped their support of the Boy Scouts.
Nikitas3.com comment: Notice all of these “conservative” corporations withdrawing their contributions. Do you know why so many corporations today are liberal?
It is because the higher-ups in the corporate world today came out of colleges and universities in the 1960s and 1970s when leftist indoctrination started coming on strong.
Coulter writes: In his pre-Super Bowl TV interview in 2013, President Barack Obama was still harping on the Boy Scouts’ refusal to allow gay scoutmasters: “Gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everybody else does.”
On CNN, host Carol Costello haughtily informed a guest opposed to gay scoutmasters, “Well, I’ll just say that the American Psychological Association has studied the issue that you just mentioned. Homosexuals aren’t any more likely to molest kids than straight men.”
Nikitas3.com comment: This is more pro-gay propaganda from the left.
Spielberg’s Daughter goes into Porn
Hollywood mega-director Stephen Spielberg’s adopted 23-yer old black daughter has confessed that she is pursuing a career in sex work. She said that she has been making porn videos and aspires to dance in a strip club.
She said, “I got really tired of not being able to capitalize on my body and frankly, I got really tired of being told to hate my body.”
“And I also just got tired of working day to day in a way that wasn’t satisfying my soul. I feel like doing this kind of work, I’m able to ‘satisfy’ other people, but that feels good because it’s not in a way that makes me feel violated.”
This is crazy. But what else could you expect from a volatile combination – crazy Hollywood morals attached to a poor black child adopted by rich white Jewish parents.
Nikitas3.com has warned for decades that it is not good for black children to be adopted by white parents because of all of the conflict that that child is going to face, not only internally but from the radical black community that does not approve of the adoptions.
Mikaela Spielberg also discussed her past, saying she was sexually abused by “predators” growing up but said that these men were not friends or anyone from the Spielberg family.
The abuse subjected her to years of mental-health problems, anorexia, personality disorder and alcoholism.
