The Sessions v. California Lawsuit is a Good Start. Perp Walks of CA Officials Would be Even Better
DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The Trump economy just continues to add jobs at a phenomenal pace. The ADP/Moody’s Analytics report for February indicates the economy created 235,000 new non-government jobs, well above expectations of 195,000. The same report raised the initially-reported January number from 234,000 to 244,000.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Wednesday that the Justice Department is filing a lawsuit against California, challenging the state’s “sanctuary state” laws that have its officials openly violating national immigration laws. The challenge is filed under the “Supremacy Clause” of the U.S. Constitution, which holds that, when state laws are in direct conflict with federal laws, the federal law prevails. This would seem like a pretty open and shut case, but we can assume that the outlaw 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, through which this case would have to go prior to moving to the Supreme Court, will find some absurd means of ruling in the Golden State’s favor. Because being overturned by the Supreme Court is the 9th Circuit’s favorite pastime.

California Governor Jerry Brown, who has spent the last 7 years turning his state into a third world country modeled on Venezuela, denounced Sessions’ move, in the process revealing his state’s strategy in fighting the case. Brown stated at one point that the case would “last longer than the Trump Administration,” which, if his lawyers engage in delaying tactics, could certainly be the case should Trump not win re-election in 2020. In the meantime, absent further enforcement actions by the federal government, California just gets to keep engaging in its sedition actions on behalf of the MS-13 gang and other illegal immigrant criminals.

One possible further enforcement action for Sessions to take would be to start charging California officials, like Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, with criminal violations. Ms. Schaaf, who called Sessions a “racist” after he had announced his lawsuit, was directly responsible for the escape of hundreds of known criminals last week during an ICE roundup of criminal aliens in her area, when she tweeted out a warning about the operation 24 hours in advance. This is clearly obstruction of justice, and if Sessions really wants to change behavior by California’s outlaw office holders, conducting a few televised perp walks of people like Ms. Schaaf being hauled off to jail in handcuffs would be a great way to start.

Narrative failed? Double down on the narrative. – In the wake of their narrative of a Texas “blue wave” having failed miserably in Tuesday’s Texas primary elections, the fake news media and Democrat-leaning elections analysts like Charlie Cook did what Democrats do: they doubled down on the narrative.

Cook, who cited “a lot of evidence” that a blue Texas wave was forming, despite the fact that GOP turnout for the primaries was 50% higher than the Democrat turnout, said “It’s the Democratic tidal wave versus the Republican seawall. At this point, my bet is that in House, the wave is bigger and stronger than the wall, but in the Senate, my money is on the wall not the wave.” Yeah, ok. Cook also predicted that Hillary Clinton was going to easily be elected to the presidency in 2016, so there’s that.

The Democrats, meanwhile, continued to cling to their hopes of a blue wave by repeatedly pointing out that their total turnout was just over 1,000,000, the first time that had happened since the 2002 primaries. None of them went onto mention the inconvenient fact that, in the 2002 general elections, their party lost every statewide election in Texas, with Republican Rick Perry prevailing over his extremely well-funded opponent, Tony Sanchez, by a 58-40 margin.

As for Cook’s claim that the Democrat “could” hope to move three of the state’s 36 congressional seats from Republican to Democrat, even that is highly suspect. Of the three vulnerable Republicans Cook cites – John Culberson, Pete Sessions and Will Hurd – only Hurd would seem to be in real jeopardy. That is not at all surprising, given that Hurd represents a district that runs from San Antonio all the way to El Paso, one which most observers think is a slightly Democrat-majority district.

Hurd in fact defeated a Democrat incumbent to win the seat in 2014, and barely defeated that same Democrat to win re-election in 2016. Were that district to flip back to the Democrats in this election, that would not be a “blue wave”, that would simply be the normal course of business.

But hey, stories discussing the normal course of business don’t generate Internet clicks or TV audiences or newspaper sales the way a narrative about a “blue wave” coming to Texas does. Right? Right.

Just another day in the Texas Blue Wave is clickbait America.

That is all.

Send troops into Sacramento with orders to arrest the entire government of Kalifornia if that’s what it takes.

All I see is symbolism here.

Bottom lines are build a wall on the southern border plus cut off the supply of H1 work visas to deal with the back door.

Its ultimately about cheap labor and Gee Oh Pee crowd doesn’t want that.

Unless their name is Bundy.

His new US Attorney in Las Vegas Dayle Elieson, said there would be a “determination about the next appropriate steps” after the Democrat judge threw out the charges “with prejudice” because of “willful” withholding of evidence by the prosecutors.

She and her crew of corrupt prosecutors are asking the judge to change her mind so they can prosecute the Bundy’s again over the 2014 standoff.

Yeah, that’s the real Jeff Sessions.

Before sending in ground troops, I think we need a softening up barrage into the centers of resistance like SF and LA. In SF, the Russian Hill area would be a good place to commence and in LA anywhere from Malibu to Santa Monica would suit me fine. If a few fall short into east LA, nothing to be lost with that either.

SF areaused to be a great Navy town with Treasure Island, Mare Island, Oakland Naval Supply, and Alameda NAS. Today it is a band of electron pushing nano second junkies all of whom seem to be commie elitists.

I wouldn’t target SF itself. Most of the real wealthy power brokers abandoned SF for Marin, Santa Clara, and other locales a long time ago.

No, I would simply nuke Silicon Valley. The world would instantly become a better place. Your target selection for Southern Cal is right on the money however.

Horseshit! A lawsuit? Why doesn’t he just send them a really, really strongly-worded letter. People like Schaff and ANYONE who knowingly harbors a criminal alien is in clear violation of Title 18, USC. Arrest them and prosecute them, Jeffie - you’re the friggin’ Attorney General, not the Solicitor General.

Hey Jeff, I heard Gov. Moonbeam is smoking a mariguana joint in his Governer’s office at this very moment. Perhaps this will get you off your butt to actually do something since Refer Madness is all you get excited about.
