DC at the White House
By Ben Crystal
From desert heat to winter snow — and most points in between — it’s time for a look back at the week that was. Personal Liberty Digest® presents: The WIRE!
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals put the kibosh on border security this week, blocking President Donald Trump’s executive order imposing a temporary halt on immigration from areas known to produce terrorists. The Democrats who fought the order weren’t the only ones celebrating.
Trump promised to appeal the 9th Circuit’s decision to the Supreme Court. Thanks to Democrat obstruction, at least the lawyers will get paid.
Among those celebrating the ruling: Hillary Clinton. She tweeted “3-0” after the 9th Circuit’s unanimous ruling.
Speaking of numbers, here’s one for Nana Hilldawg: 306-232.
Down in Phoenix, a group of liberals attacked Immigration and Customs Enforcement personnel to try and free illegal alien, and convicted criminal, Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos from deportation.
Illegal breaks law, illegal gets caught, illegal goes home. Sorry kids, but that’s literally how it’s supposed to work.
Univision talking head, and well-known amnesty advocate, Jorge Ramos declared his hate for our president. The Mexican-born pseudo-journalist complained, “I just don’t recognize this country anymore.”
You’d think it would seem familiar by now, what with so many of his countrymen living here.
Amnesty advocates continued pushing on behalf of illegal aliens; claiming Trump’s order would create scenes of armed government agents grabbing children from their relatives’ arms.
Despite dire predictions by so-called “climate change” cultists, the Northeast was paralyzed this week as a massive blizzard swept across the region. Winter storms in winter; what will they think of next?
Tough week for Senate Democrats, as they watched helplessly as Trump’s nominees were confirmed, even in close votes. If only there was a way they could do more than throw a tantrum.
“You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president? Go out there and win an election!”
Senator Jeff Sessions won confirmation as the Attorney General despite an epic hissy fit by Democrats who ignored not only previous praise for Sessions by groups like the NAACP, but his failure to run guns to Mexican narcoterrorists, commit perjury or even rig a presidential nomination.
Betsy DeVos became the new Secretary of Education when Vice President Mike Pence cast the tie-breaking vote in favor of her nomination; setting off a new round of howling from otherwise impotent Democrats.
Remember when the Democrat Party loved that the Vice President could break a tie in the Senate? They don’t.
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren had an even tougher week. After a bizarre stunt against Attorney General Jeff Sessions got her a spot in Senate timeout, the wealthy, white, privileged, millionaire tried to claim she was a victim.
In Home of Brave, Fauxcahontas just a squaw.
Turned out, the whole act was just a way to push sales of her new book; making her the Lena Dunham of the Senate.
“The Song of Lieawatha” — on sale now!
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders took one for the team this week; submitting to a debate with Senator Ted Cruz over Obamacare, and enduring the worst beating since Georgia Tech knocked out Cumberland 222-0 back in 1916.
Also known as Bernie’s sophomore year.
During the debate, Sanders, who already wants college to be free, expressed his belief that an increase in doctors would cure what ails Obamacare. He offered no clues as to the source of the new doctors, but if they come from “free” college, they’ll be worth every penny.
“Medical school? Nah. But my first name is Doctor.”
A decision by Nordstrom, a high-dollar department store. to make a show out of cutting ties with Ivanka Trump’s fashion line backfired when the president publicly torched them for the slight.
He combines the paternal instincts of a timber wolf with the restraint of a hyperactive seven year old. What did you think would happen?
CNN correspondent Chris Cuomo stepped on his tongue this week. The employee of a network famous for fake news whined “I see being called ‘fake news’ as the equivalent of the N-word for journalists.” Right, because growing up as an upper-class white kid in Queens was so hard.
The struggle is real!
For those of you scoring at home, that’s his fifth Super Bowl ring and his fourth Super Bowl MVP honor; not to mention his twelfth Pro Bowl selection, second NFL MVP honor and — oh yeah — Giselle. But, but, but — “deflategate!”
“Anything you want to add, Commish?”
And that’s your week in review! For the Personal Liberty Digest®, I’m Ben Crystal saying “See you next week on the WIRE!”
