 Jordan, Gaetz Turn Up Pressure for Second Special Counsel
{ rickwells.us } ~ Sean Hannity begins the segment with some tweets by President Trump which cut right to the point... of why the spy that was planted in his campaign by the liar-nObama/liar-Clinton/scum-Soros Mafia was paid such a large sum of money for his services, reportedly between $400,000 and $1,000,000, when the standard fee for an adviser in that purported function is much less. President Trump urges that America follow the money, noting that the spy was there earlier than the timetable of events would logically permit or dictate. He also points out that if the actual purpose, as has been argued by Clapper in an attempt to stay out of prison, was to investigate Russia-Trump collusion against liar-Clinton, why was no evidence ever provided? The reason may be because it was a political operation conducted in violation of federal law by our hijacked government. That’s also the reason why the documented liar-Clinton-Russia collusion is not being pursued. They have no interest in justice, the goal is to get Trump – period...

Activists Slam commie-
Sanders-Inspired ‘Our Revolution’ 
for Problems With Latino Engagement
by Haris Alic 
{ freebeacon.com } ~ Our Revolution, the progressive advocacy group that spun off from Sen. commie-Bernie Sanders' (I., Vt.) failed 2016 presidential campaign... has a problem engaging America's burgeoning Latino community, according to a new report. The group's president, former Ohio Democratic state senator Nina Turner, elicited rebuke in a report released Monday for her controversial leadership style and what some believe is an aversion to properly courting Latino voters, according to Politico, who spoke to two dozen sources inside and outside the organization. Turner's detractors pointed to her unwillingness to leverage the group's resources in initiating broader advocacy efforts to fix the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program, an liar-nObama administration's executive order that provided legal protections to illegal immigrants brought to America as children. The issue came to a head in September when President Donald Trump rescinded the program, arguing it was conceived and implemented through executive overreach. The program's annulment left the legal status of over 800,000 dreamers in limbo...

Probe of DOJ and FBI Misconduct
by sundance
{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Following on the heels of the House of Representatives filing a resolution today outlining evidence of FBI and DOJ political corruption... and calling for a second special counsel, Representative Matt Gaetz appears on CNN to discuss the granular issues. In this interview democrat operative Jake Tapper attempts to lay multiple traps for Matt Gaetz to walk into. However, Matt Gaetz uses a firm understanding of the facts to avoid the narrative efforts of Tapper and deconstructs the nonsense with ninja-level retort.
IDF strikes underground Hamas terror target, seaport in Gaza 
by jpost.com 
{ jpost.com } ~ Israeli Air Force jets targeted underground terror infrastructure in the northern Gaza Strip early Wednesday morning, the IDF said... Two further targets belonging to Hamas naval forces in Gaza were also targeted. Local residents said the strikes destroyed a boat moored in Gaza City, with no reports of casualties. They said the boat, which was set ablaze, was due to sail to meet a flotilla of boats hoping to reach Gaza. The IDF did not provide further details regarding the nature of the underground infrastructure.The army said the strikes came in response to an arson attack on an Israeli military position by a number of Palestinians who infiltrated into Israel from the Gaza Strip on Tuesday morning and ongoing attempts to harm Israel using drones and kites...
Farage Grills Robotic Zuckerberg Over 
Anti-Conservative Facebook Censorship
{ rickwells.us } ~ As one who presently has his ability to communicate over Facebook seriously degraded by their censors for posting the truth about Zuckerberg’s complicity... with scum-George Soros in censoring conservatives and their plans to interfere in future elections here in the US and abroad, this is a topic that strikes home. When your account is disabled, there is no explanation other than a cookie-cutter mailing, no realistic method of appeal or redress and no way to recapture years of building a following or even letting those with whom you have a relationship know what happened. Zuckerberg likes being the communications dictator, a character defect that Nigel Farage addresses diplomatically, but in no uncertain terms, noting his own experience with Zuckerberg’s war on the right, conservative thought and more importantly, our ability to express our thoughts in speech over his monopolistic public utility that, though privately held, is clearly in violation of anti-trust laws and needs to be broken up just as Bell Telephone was back in the 1970s...   https://rickwells.us/farage-zuckerberg-facebook-censorship/

SCOTUS: Contracts Mean What They Say 

by Lewis Morris:  The Supreme Court handed down a decision Monday stating that companies have the right to require workers to settle employment disputes though individual arbitration if their contracts stipulate it. In the case Epic Systems Corp v. Lewis (to which similar cases Ernst & Young LLP et al. v. Morris et al. and National Labor Relations Board v. Murphy Oil USE, et al. were joined), the Court ruled that employees who agree to arbitration standards upon accepting a job must follow those same standards should a dispute arise. It was a solid ruling that also shows the importance of the current 5-4 divide.

            In Epic, employees were seeking to forego arbitration and form a class action case against their employer rather than follow the individual arbitration standard they agreed to upon accepting their jobs and as outlined in the long-standing Federal Arbitration Act. In other words, the employees wished to throw out the rules because they had changed their minds.
               The Wall Street Journal notes some history in the dispute: “In 2012 the liar-nObama National Labor Relations Board ruled that arbitration clauses in contracts that ban class actions violate Section 7 of the 1935 National Labor Relations Act. The novel ruling conflicted with even the board’s own general counsel’s opinion in 2010 that the validity of arbitration agreements ‘does not involve consideration of the policies of the National Labor Relations Act.’”
               Justice Neil Gorsuch framed the case in two basic questions. Can employers insist that workplace disputes be handled through individual arbitration? Should employees always have an option of bringing claims in collective actions through the courts?
               “As a matter of policy these questions are surely debatable,” Gorsuch wrote for the majority, which included Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito. “But as a matter of law the answer is clear. In the Federal Arbitration Act, Congress has instructed federal courts to enforce arbitration agreements according to their terms — including terms providing for individualized proceedings.”
               On the other side of the 5-4 ruling were leftist Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It was Ginsburg who wrote the particularly shrill dissent, and she insisted on reading it from the bench.
               “The court today holds enforceable these arm-twisted, take-it-or-leave-it contracts — including the provisions requiring employees to litigate wage and hours claims only one-by-one,” Ginsburg complained. “Federal labor law does not countenance such isolation of employees.”
               Ginsburg’s dissenting opinion supports the idea that workers can accept terms of employment that include individual arbitration, but then opt out of those terms down the line if the worker believes that the terms are no longer suitable for whatever reason.
               While the idea of following the rules only when they suit you is a typical component of the leftist worldview, it does not (or should not) hold in contract law or in business. As Gorsuch noted, the law is very clear on this issue. Ginsburg’s belief that this ruling will lead to an erosion of workers’ rights is overstated and misguided, as is the belief that the courts exist to weigh every single dispute between companies and their workers. Moreover, the notion that courts should always side with employees is another component of the leftist outlook that is simply false.
               Gorsuch’s ruling was refreshing in that it demonstrated precisely how the Supreme Court should always operate — by examining a case on the merits and respecting the Rule of Law. Ginsburg’s dissent clearly demonstrated all that is wrong with the judiciary. She chose to engage in speculation and tried to create a ruling not based on what the law is but what she believes it should be.
               Indeed, Gorsuch addressed this, writing, “This Court is not free to substitute its preferred economic policies for those chosen by the people’s representatives.
               Hopefully, Gorsuch’s ruling in this case will be just one of many level-headed rulings we can expect from the Court as this term comes to a close. There are some blockbuster cases yet to come.   ~The Patriot Pos

ALERT ALERT

Ignored By Media: Trump Is Using Obama’s National Emergency On Mexican Cartels To Build The Border Wall

President Trump declared a State of Emergency at the US southern border on Friday.

Declaring the immigration crisis a national emergency was overdue. Presidents have declared national emergencies for nearly 50 years.

Barack Obama declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. The Obama emergencies included the Swine Flu, Flint water crisis and Iran.

And Obama declared the Mexican drug cartels a national emergency in 2011.

Congress believes President Trump has $21 billion in unobligated military construction funding money available for the border wall with Mexico.

Now this was mostly ignored by the liberal media. President Trump is using Barack Obama’s previous national emergency on Mexican drug cartels to get funding for the border wall.

Via Law and Crime:

As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to Americans.

“Drugs, gangs and people — an invasion,” Trump said on Friday. “We have an invasion coming into this country.”

Trump all but thanked his predecessor on Friday.

“We may be using one of the national emergencies that [Obama] signed having to do with criminal cartels… it’s a very good national emergency… we’re going to be using parts of it,” he said.
