Donald Trump is the gift that keeps giving. The week is still in its infancy, but the president has already made Chucky Schumer cry, fired Acting Attorney General Sally Yates within hours of her acting up, and caused the Forgotten Man to go even harder for their president. This Trump accomplished by inadvertently exposing the Democrats as firmly in the camp of Hollywood harridans, tech execs, the immigration lawyers lobby, the global refugee industry; and in the grip of the international human rights octopus.
The Democratic constituency can no longer hide. It’s as though all these ghastly people are wearing the pussy dunce-caps adorned by the Madonna and Ashley Judd protesters.
The first moment of joy came when, flanked by swaddled Muslim women, the sanctimonious Schumer, a politician to his fingertips, choked up because of President Trump’s executive order to “temporarily halt the U.S. refugee program and ban entries from seven Muslim-majority nations for 90 days.” The president campaigned on this promise, was elected based upon it, and is now fulfilling it, a novel concept to a shyster like Schumer.
Then, before Sally Yates could use her perch, as a public servant at DOJ, to crusade for a centralized value system—the POTUS fired her, promptly ending Yates’ two-hour insurrection at the Department of Justice.
Here’s the Yates fit of pique that so energized CNN’s Alpha Females (Anderson Cooper, Erin Burnett, Brianna Keilar, Don Lemon, David Gergen):
I am responsible for ensuring that the positions we take in court remain consistent with this institution’s solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right. At present, I am not convinced that the defense of the executive order is consistent with these responsibilities nor am I convinced that the executive order is lawful.
And I thought the DOJ was charged with implementing the laws of the land, in accordance with its mission statement. To wit, “The Department of Justice is a cabinet-level agency responsible for enforcing the laws of the United States federal government. DOJ ensures public safety against foreign and domestic threats, including terrorism, and preventing crime.”
Whether it was borne of insubordination, incompetence or both, Yates’ virtue-signaling press conference was about feelings—her own. It was bereft of legal argument. Clearly, this activist was chosen by Barack Obama not for her analytical, legal mind, or her understanding of the plenary power the legislative and the executive branches possess, vis-a-vis immigration.
In her mind, the job of the country’s top cop is to police our values (or enforce her own).
Not in dispute is Professor Alan Dershowitz’s analytical acumen. The liberal lawyer called Yates’ posturing “holdover heroism. It’s so easy to be a heroine when you’re not appointed by this president and when you’re on the other side,” he admonished, deriding Yates for resorting to political posturing, while failing to offer a nuanced legal analysis of the “Executive Order [to Protect] The Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States.”
Mercifully, Yates’ conniption didn’t last long. In doing what’s right for the country, President Trump exposed the Justice Department as a politicized fiefdom, controlled by a feeble-minded female.
He had been gone for only eight, jam-packed days, but Barack Obama’s reappearance was likewise blissfully brief. The cable girls were destined to be disappointed. Again. After releasing a short, woolly statement to say how “heartened” he was “by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country,” Obama retreated, neutralized, too, by President Trump’s decisive actions.
If it’s not a “muscular mobilization of the race-based community”; it’s a sit-in or a boycott: Dunce-cap Democrats are currently boycotting committee votes on the president’s cabinet picks. Indirectly does The Donald’s creative destruction provide good stagecraft (and statecraft), in showcasing the Democrats’ Third-World politics.
