I never saw any reason to hold Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz in particularly high esteem, aside from the fact that unlike a lot of Jewish intellectuals, he openly supported Israel.

Aside from that, I only knew that Dershowitz had signed on to help keep O.J. Simpson from going to jail for two murders that couldn’t have been committed by anyone else; and that he never met a left-wing politician he didn’t support. Heck, the schmuck even donated money to liar-Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

But now, simply because he has dared argue that Trump was within his constitutional rights to issue a travel ban, he is being ostracized by his former friends and colleagues and is, as a result, being hailed as a hero by conservatives. Alas, what fools these mortals be.

Those on the Left are foolish to banish one of their own on such trivial grounds, and we conservatives are equally foolish to turn him into a sacred icon for merely interpreting the Constitution correctly.

But I have to hand it to Dershowitz for managing to inflate a non-story so shrewdly that the New York Times has twice made his social life front-page news, and Fox is tripping all over itself to get him on as many of their shows as possible.

I mean, who really cares if Dershowitz is or isn’t being invited to cocktail parties on Martha’s Vineyard? Even Dershowitz, when asked about it, claims he doesn’t care about parties, although I tend not to believe much of anything he says. 

Besides, there is only one party he really cares about and that’s the left-wing one he’s been supporting for his entire life.

⦿  Interestingly enough, something similar has been taking place on the other side, where George Will, backstabber-Bill Kristol and Max Boot, have cast aside their conservative disguises and urged Republicans to repudiate Trump by voting for dummycrats-Democrats in November.

Frankly, I can’t imagine many Republicans or any conservatives taking them seriously. Apparently, those who see themselves as the keepers of the flame have never forgiven Trump for the fact that he never knelt before the editors and writers of the National Review, begging for their benediction, and that he never paused on his way to the White House to say he owed it all to William F. Buckley and Karl Rove.

That he has instead insisted that his debt is solely to the fishermen of the Southeast, the farmers of the Midwest and the unemployed millworkers and coalminers of Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, the folks who voted for him and continue to support him, has cast him beyond the pale, so far as the effete elitists are concerned.

Compounding matters, he didn’t graduate from Yale, Harvard or Princeton, or immediately enter politics upon graduation, but, instead, made billions working in the bareknuckle construction business.

It’s no wonder that the Republican establishment can’t stand him. After all, here is a guy who understood that for the sake of getting things done in New York, he had to donate to dummycrats-Democrats, just as he had to pay graft to the mob-run unions.

The fact that he has gone on to prove himself not only more conservative than Ronald Reagan, but more proficient at getting things done, galls them no end. If someone who played the game according to their rules, someone like Jeb Bush, Rick Santorum, Jim Gilmore or John Kasich, had become president and not done a tenth of the things Trump has accomplished, these same dipsticks would be praising him to the skies.

Anyone who doesn’t believe the GOP is better off without the likes of Will, backstabber-Kristol and Boot, needs to have his head examined.

⦿  I was delighted to see Sen. scumbag-Dick Durbin (D, IL) calling for his liberal colleagues to commit political suicide. There’s nothing like blatant hypocrisy on the Left to get my 78-year-old juices flowing.

Apparently, the minority whip felt obliged to tell his fellow dummycrats-Democrats, at least those running for re-election in states Trump won decisively, to sacrifice their political careers by opposing Trump’s choice to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.

He announced: “Beyond the procedure, beyond the gamesmanship, there are life and death decisions that will be made by the Court on so many issues. Stopping Trump’s nominee is more important than the upcoming midterm elections.”

I wonder how that was taken by such vulnerable dummycrats-Democrats as Missouri’s Claire McCaskill, Wyoming’s John Barrasso, Indiana's Joe Donnelly and West Virginia’s Joe Manchin, all of whom are running for re-election in states won handily by Trump. It must have been particularly galling coming from scumbag-Durbin, who isn’t running until 2020, and even then in a state liar-Hillary Clinton carried by 17%.

⦿  There are so many things wrong with liberals, it’s hard to know where to begin, and once you begin, you’ll find there’s no end in sight.

For instance, when it comes to abortions, the two sides will never agree about them in terms of morality. To me, the real question I never hear anyone asking is why in 2018, all these years after the invention of the Pill, when so many prophylactic items are cheap and readily accessible, and when so many hours of classroom time have been devoted to sex education starting in grammar school, abortions haven’t gone the inevitable way of Hula Hoops, lava lamps and Nehru jackets.

Just how dumb do you have to be to still be getting pregnant accidentally?

 Jewish Intellectuals, really, @ Burt, what make you think that people who are Jewish are so Intellectual? 

 They are only human, and by far not Intellectually above all others....Please give us a Break!!!!

 America Economy in the crapper  because of the Federal Reserve Banking Notes deal with the Jewish Family the Rothschilds. 

 Then we have this:

We’re Ready to Rebuild the Temple Of Babylonians:

The Temple in Jerusalem was any of a series of structures which were located on the Temple. The First Temple was totally destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BCE (425 BCE according to. It was completed 23 years later, on the third day of Adar, in the sixth year of the reign of Darius the ..... 1 January 2000 – via IMDb.
 The Tower of Babylon or Babel in Medes Iran, was destroyed by God not the Jewish Babylonians. The Babylonian captivity or Babylonian exile is the period in Jewish history during which a number of people from the ancient Kingdom of Judah were captives in Babylonia.

 Who or what ever they are, are not in their right minds rebuilds temples that God Destroyed?

Newt Says What The Rest Of Us Are Thinking:
It’s Time To Throw Peter Strzok In Jail

Disgraced FBI special agent Peter Strzok, a senior member of the bureau who gained notoriety in recent months over his anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, was grilled for nearly 10 hours during a joint congressional committee hearing on Thursday.

At issue was Strzok’s anti-Trump texts to former FBI lawyer and lover Lisa Page that coincided with his leading of the investigations into both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server scandal and the alleged Trump/Russia 2016 election collusion, as well as his involvement in the subsequent Robert Mueller special counsel probe.

The hearing proved to be a heated battle, as Strzok displayed an arrogant smugness in defiance of pointed questions from Republicans that he largely danced around, while Democrats sought to upend and undermine the entire hearing with a plethora of interruptions, parliamentary maneuvers and outright praise for the man who helped let Clinton off the hook while ferociously targeting Trump.

Former House speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich was less than impressed with Strzok’s performance and cooperation in the hearing and suggested during an appearance on Fox Business that the FBI agent should be held in contempt of Congress.

“I think they have to move to hold him in contempt and throw him in jail,” Gingrich said of Congress and Strzok.

“This is a person who is willfully standing up and refusing to appear as a congressional witness and he was a government employee at the time,” he continued.

“He has every obligation to inform the legislative branch, and I don’t think they have any choice except to move a motion of contempt because he is fundamentally — and so is his girlfriend (Page) — they’re both fundamentally in violation of the entire constitutional process,” he added.

Page had been subpoenaed to appear before Congress on Wednesday but refused to appear, saying she’d been unable to review relevant documents prior to the scheduled hearing, a closed-door hearing that has since been rescheduled for Friday.

Gingrich was not the only one who thought Strzok deserved to be held in contempt of Congress, as House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte informed Strzok that he remained at risk of such during the hearing, according to The Daily Caller.

That warning from Goodlatte came after Strzok had refused to answer a straightforward question posed by House Oversight Committee chairman Trey Gowdy, regarding how many people Strzok had personally interviewed between a specific set of dates in relation to the Clinton email investigation.

“Mr. Strzok, please be advised that you can either comply with the committee’s direction to answer the question or refuse to do so,” Goodlatte stated. “The latter of which will place you in risk of a contempt citation and potential criminal liability. Do you understand that? The question is directed to the witness.”

Strzok still refused to answer, citing instructions received from his counsel and the FBI to not answer certain questions on certain topics.

Goodlatte replied, “Mr. Strzok, in a moment we will continue with the hearing, but based on your refusal to answer the question, at the conclusion of the day we will be recessing the hearing and you will be subject to recall to allow the committee to consider proceeding with a contempt citation.”

It is unclear if Goodlatte and the committee ultimately did consider a contempt citation for Strzok following the contentious hearing, nor is it clear if Page will be held in contempt for blowing off her subpoenaed appearance on Wednesday.

Hopefully Congress will follow through on the threats of contempt followed by actual jail time against Strzok and Page in response to their uncooperative behavior and failure to appear when subpoenaed, if only to ensure that future witnesses called before Congress for sensitive or contentious hearings don’t think they can get away with the same sort of behavior.


Cops Sent To Seize Veteran’s Guns Without A Warrant, He Refused To Turn Them Over

“No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process,” says Leonard Cottrell, after successfully staving off law enforcement and the courts from confiscating his firearms. Cottrell, an Iraq War veteran, was at work when he received a phone call from his wife. The cops were there, busting in to take his guns away. It all started after a casual conversation his son had at school.

Ammoland reports:

Police said their visit was sparked by a conversation that Leonard Cottrell Jr.’s 13-year-old son had had with another student at the school. Cottrell said he was told his son and the other student were discussing security being lax and what they would have to do to escape a school shooting at Millstone Middle School.

The conversation was overheard by another student, who went home and told his parents, and his mother panicked. The mom then contacted the school, which contacted the State Police, according to Cottrell.

The visit from the troopers came around 10 p.m. on June 14, 2018, Cottrell said, a day after Gov. Phil Murphy signed several gun enforcement bills into law.

After several hours, Cottrell said police agreed not to take the guns but to allow him to move them to another location while the investigation continued.

“They had admitted several times that my son made no threat to himself or other students or the school or anything like that,” he said.

Cottrell said he made it very clear to the police that he was “not going to willingly give up my constitutional rights where there’s no justifiable cause, no warrants, no nothing.”

The troopers searched his son’s room and found nothing, Cottrell said.

“To appease everybody, I had my firearms stored someplace else,” he said. “That way, during the course of the investigation, my son doesn’t have access to them and it’s on neutral ground and everything and everybody’s happy.”

“In the Garden State, the usual approach is to confiscate first and ask questions later, and victims of this approach often don’t know their rights. ‎In this case, the victim pushed back and confiscation was avoided — but the circumstances surrounding the incident are outrageous. A student expressing concern over lack of security is not a reason to send police to the student’s home — but it might be a reason to send police to the school to keep students and teachers safe” said Scott L. Bach, executive director of the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs and a member of the NRA board of directors. adds:

Cottrell, a disabled U.S. Army veteran who served three tours during “Operation Iraqi Freedom,” owns a shotgun and a pistol. He has all the correct permits to own the firearms, he said, and predominately uses the shotgun to hunt.

He said his wife allowed the officers to enter the home, and with her permission, they searched his son’s room — but they did not find any weapons, he said. The officers, he said, didn’t have a warrant but still wanted to take his guns. Cottrell wouldn’t let them.

“No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process,” he said Thursday.

He said the attempted seizure resulted because of a new law Gov. Phil Murphy signed into law that makes it easier for police to confiscate guns when someone in the state poses a threat to themselves or others. The law is part of a broader statewide effort to make New Jersey’s gun laws even tougher amid the national outcry for more gun control in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Cottrell said the officers “danced around the issue” when he confronted them about the new law.

A New Jersey State Police spokesman declined to answer questions about whether this incident had anything to do with the new gun laws.

In an email, Sgt. First Class Jeff Flynn said, “Troopers responded to Mr. Cottrell’s residence in reference to the report of a possible school threat. Based on their investigation, it was determined that Mr. Cottrell’s weapons did not need to be seized.”

David Codrea, writing for Ammoland, further added:

To appease everybody, I had my firearms stored someplace else,” New Jersey gun owner and Army veteran Leonard Cottrell Jr. told New Jersey 101.5 after a June 14 visit from State Police,. “That way, during the course of the investigation, my son doesn’t have access to them and it’s on neutral ground and everything and everybody’s happy.”

Cottrell was recalling state troopers showing up at his door to confiscate firearms after his 13-year-old son was overheard discussing lax school safety with a friend.

Indoctrinated by a pervasive snitch culture — one that never seems to deter the blatantly obvious demonic nutjobs — the eavesdropping student told his parents, who told school administrators, who in turn called the cops. (Note “If you see something, say something” carries risks of its own – if you report the wrong person, you could end up smeared as a “hater.”)

“Cottrell said he made it very clear to the police that he was ‘not going to willingly give up my constitutional rights where there’s no justifiable cause, no warrants, no nothing,’” the report continued. Despite that, his home is now a “gun free zone” and that has been publicized by the media. He has, in fact, willingly ceded those rights, and by his own words in order to make authorities “happy.”

Before judging him for that, consider the environment that is New Jersey. Then consider the overwhelming force the state can bring to bear, and its predisposition to using it, especially if it’s to enforce citizen disarmament. It’s easy to anonymously declare “Molon Labe” on the internet. In meatspace, resistance is more effective when the aggressor doesn’t get to dictate the time and place, especially if that place is your home and you have family inside.

Appeasing gun-grabbers, generally couched as “compromise,” is impossible. It’s like throwing a scrap of flesh to a circling pack of jackals and expecting them to be sated and leave you alone — instead of sensing opportunity and fear, and moving in closer.
