AG Barr aims to release dirty cop-Mueller report 
'top-line' conclusions Saturday night, won't 
'parse words, play games,' source says
by Gregg Re  
{foxnews.com} ~ Attorney General William Barr is pushing to reveal the principal conclusions of Special Counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller's report as early as Saturday night... an administration official familiar with the process tells Fox News. “The Attorney General wants to get this out tonight," the source said, noting that some procedural hurdles could delay Barr's release.  “It will hit what is on everyone’s minds — no parsing of words, no games." A separate source told Fox News that Barr is likely to report on dirty cop-Mueller's primary conclusions between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. ET. dirty cpo-Mueller is not recommending any further indictments as part of his inquiry, which effectively ended Friday, according to a senior Justice Department official. Barr notified key congressional leaders in a letter Friday evening that dirty cop-Mueller finished his investigation, adding that a summary of the probe’s findings may be provided to lawmakers as soon as this weekend. It will likely take longer for the facts supporting the conclusions to come out, Fox News is told, because there may be materials that are either classified, or subject to executive privilege in the factual material. Fox News is told that Barr may run the conclusions past White House Counsel Pat Cipollone and Emmett Flood, who are currently in Mar-a-Lago, before they are released -- but that Trump's personal attorneys are unlikely to be notified...  https://www.foxnews.com/politics/ag-barr-aims-to-release-mueller-re...

The Metaphysics of FBI Bias
by Tadas Klimas
{americanthinker.com} ~ The release of congressional testimony by FBI headquarters personnel last week once again focused a light upon bias at the FBI. The left countered using the following arguments... Bias always exists; everyone is biased. Therefore evidence of bias is immaterial. And: Even if there is bias, this does not mean that actions taken were illegitimate. If this is true, then, no matter the evidence of bias, investigations and prosecutions that have the color of law are fair, including any of the recent FBI/DOJ investigations such as those concerning the FISA warrants, scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton's exposure of classified material, and of course regarding “Russian collusion”. One attempted response to the left's argument was made by Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett, who argued that the evident bias of high-ranking FBI personnel “poisoned any chance that the FBI’s investigation of Trump could ever be viewed as neutral, objective and fair.” But Jarrett's analysis only weakly addresses the left's argument. It leaves room for a rejoinder that whether an investigation appears fair is a question which lies in the eye of the beholder and is thus a partisan matter, subject to a “political charade.” It also does not address the relevance of bias to the correctness of actual investigative steps or prosecutorial actions...
Mainstream media, celebrities stunned as 
dirty cop-Mueller report filed with no 
new indictments planned
by Joseph A. Wulfsohn  
{foxnews.com} ~ The mainstream media seemed to suffer a collective  shock Friday evening... after the office of Special Counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller handed its final report of its Russia investigation to the Department of Justice. MSNBC host Chris Matthews seemed livid that neither President Trump, his children, nor his “henchmen” would face any criminal charges from the special counsel. “Maybe he missed the boat here,” Matthews said of dirty cop-Mueller. “Because we know about the Trump Tower meeting in June 2016, we know about the meeting at the cigar bar with Kilimnik [Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian political consultant]. My God, we know about all of those meetings with Kislyak [Sergey Kislyak, a Russian diplomat] at the Republican convention in Cleveland. All these dots we’re now to believe don’t connect.” The liberal cable news host was particularly upset that the president wasn’t indicted on obstruction of justice and never sat down for an interview with the special counsel. “Why was there never an interrogation of this president? We were told for weeks by experts, ‘You cannot deal with an obstruction-of-justice charge or investigation without getting the motive. ... How could they let Trump off the hook?” Matthews asked. “He will not be charged with obstruction of justice or collusion without having to sit down with the Special Counsel dirty cop-Mueller and answer his damn questions. How could that happen?”...  https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/mainstream-media-celebrities-...

Banning Plastic Straws Isn’t Enough; Now Envirokooks Want To Ban Straw Emojis, Too  
by Madeline Osburn  
{thefederalist.com} ~ First they came for our gun emojis. Now they’re coming for our keyboard straws... Bacardi announced their new “The Future Doesn’t Suck” campaign on Friday, taking a brave stance against emojis depicting straws and single-use plastic cups. The drink company teamed up with ocean activist organization Lonely Whale to announce they are dedicated to eliminating all plastic straws, even the digital ones. “We think if humans are going to get used to the idea of using less plastic straws, they should use less emoji straws, too,” the company said in a statement.“Be cool and delete all emoji straws.” The eco-war against straws began in 2018 as multiple states and municipalities passed laws and ordinances against restaurants serving plastic straws to customers. But corporations have taken the environmental trend to a new level of woke marketing and virtue signaling. Last July, Starbucks announced they would remove straws from all of their stores, replacing their lids with an “adult sippy-cup.” Airlines and hotel chains like Hyatt and Hilton shortly followed suit...

Muslims Who Stand Up To Mullah's 
Are No 'Islamophobes'
by Tarek Fatah
{meforum.org} ~ On Sunday March 17, Hassan Sajwani, an active Twitterati in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) quoted a warning his country's foreign minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al-Nahyan... had delivered to Europe at the "Tweeps Forum" in Saudi Arabia in 2017. The UAE foreign minister had  cautioned Europe about the rise of Islamic extremists within the continent: "There will come a day when we see far more radicals, extremists and terrorists coming from Europe because of (a) lack of decision-making, and European politicians trying to be politically correct." Sajwani's tweet recollecting the UAE minister's 2017 warning turned out to be quite prophetic. The very next day, on Monday, Turkish-born gunman Gokmen Tanis brought the Dutch city of Utrecht to a halt when he fired on a tram streetcar killing three people and injuring three others. Dutch prosecutors investigating the attack say, "So far a terrorist motive is being seriously taken into account. Among other things a letter found in the getaway car and the nature of the facts give rise to that," a statement said in Dutch, without detailing the contents of the letter. The Utrecht killing of non-Muslims by a Turkish terror suspect cannot be seen outside the recent massacre of Muslims inside two New Zealand mosques by a white nationalist and earlier massacres carried out against Christians inside and outside churches in The Philippines and Nigeria as well as in Pakistan, Syria, Iraq and Egypt...

Trump Acts to Protect Free Speech at 
America's Universities
Thomas Gallatin:  “Under the policy I announced today, federal agencies will use their authority under various grant-making programs to ensure that public universities protect [and] cherish … the First Amendment rights of their students, or risk losing billions and billions of dollars in federal taxpayer dollars,” President Donald Trump stated on Thursday as he signed his executive order directing America’s colleges and universities to protect free speech. By signing the executive order, Trump made good on the promise he made at CPAC earlier this month.
 

Trump defended the need for his order by noting, “Under the guise of speech codes, safe spaces, trigger warnings, these universities tried to restrict free thought, impose total conformity, and shut down the voices of great young Americans. … Taxpayer dollars should not subsidize anti-First Amendment institutions — and that’s exactly what they are, anti-First Amendment. Universities that want taxpayer dollars should promote free speech, not silence free speech.”

Trump’s order is low on specifics, but it does note that only research grant moneydoled out by the federal government to colleges and universities every year would be affected and not aid programs for federal student loans. As Reason’s Robby Soave observes, Trump’s EO “mostly serves as a declaration of support for the First Amendment, and a sign that the Trump administration is looking at doing something to help graduates drowning in debt.”

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), a nonpartisan free-speech-promoting watchdog organization that rates America’s colleges and universities for their adherence to free speech, gave guarded support for the spirit of order while voicing a wariness to federal overreach. “FIRE will watch closely to see if today’s action furthers the meaningful, lasting policy changes that FIRE has secured over two decades — or results in unintended consequences that threaten free expression and academic freedom.”

When Trump first brought up issuing an executive order on protecting campus free speech, we too agreed with his sentiment but were concerned that it could run into the realm of executive overreach. Upon seeing the order, those concerns are somewhat alleviated, as the order appears to be more of a symbolic gesture designed to publicly highlight the growing problem of silencing speech on many of America’s college and university campuses. Trump is using the presidential bully pulpit to shine a national spotlight on the problem that much of the mainstream media has ignored and that many leftist university professors deny even exits. As he has constantly done in highlighting the leftist bias in the MSM, Trump is similarly seeking to expose the massive leftist bias that exists within the halls of America’s institutions of higher learning.  ~The Patriot Post

ALERT ALERT

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
