Senate Rule Change Pushed By Harry Reid Could Allow Trump To Get All Of His Appointments Confirmed – Daily Caller
.

.
A senate rule change championed by outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid could leave Democrats powerless to stop any of President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet appointments.

In 2013, Sen. Reid and other Democrats pushed forward with a rule change dubbed the “nuclear option” to eliminate filibusters for all presidential nominations except Supreme Court justices. This means that a simple majority of 51 votes instead of 60 votes is necessary to confirm executive office appointments.

The Republicans are set to enter 2017 with at least 51 senators and can gain another seat with a likely win in the December senate run-off race in Louisiana.

So while Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile has called for the senate to reject Trump’s nomination of Republican Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions as attorney general, Trump’s cabinet will get confirmed as long Republicans vote along party lines…

Federal Judge At Citizenship Ceremony: If You Don’t Like Trump, Then Leave – The Hill

A federal judge this week said at a U.S. citizenship ceremony that anyone unhappy with President-elect Donald Trump should go to a different country.

“I can assure you that whether you voted for him or you did not vote for him, if you are a citizen of the United States, he is your president,” Judge John Primomo said Thursday, according to KHOU 11 News.

“He will be your president and if you do not like that, you need to go to another country.”

At the ceremony in San Antonio, the judge condemned Americans who have protested by holding signs that read “Not my president” in the days since Trump won the election.

Primomo, a federal magistrate judge for the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas, also went after the NFL players who take a knee rather than standing during the national anthem at football games.

“I detest that, because you can protest things that happen in this country; you have every right to,” he said.

“You don’t do that by offending national symbols like the national anthem and the flag of the United States,” Primomo added…

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Is Democrats’ Nightmare – Byron York
.

.
President-elect Trump’s transition team knew that nominating Jeff Sessions for Attorney General would set off controversy. Democrats and their allies in the press have at key times in the past called Sessions a racist – they’re now using the Alabama senator’s full name, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, to heighten the Old South effect – and now, as they oppose Trump at nearly every turn, they’ve turned to race again.

Here’s why the effort to stop Sessions is likely to intensify as his confirmation hearings near. Sessions is the Senate’s highest-profile, most determined, and most knowledgeable opponent of comprehensive immigration reform. Democrats are particularly anxious about immigration because of the unusually tenuous nature of President Obama’s policies on the issue…

DHS Shuts Down Aerial Surveillance On Border – Watchdog

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security quietly shut down Operation Phalanx, an aerial surveillance program that intercepts drugs and illegal crossings along the Mexican border.

Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo, vows to challenge DHS’s move, saying Congress provided “full funding” for 2017.

Cuellar, a member of the House Appropriations Committee and the Homeland Security Subcommittee, is drafting a letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson protesting the shutdown.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Cuellar challenged Johnson last February when DHS reduced Phalanx’s flight operations.

This time, Cuellar is seeking reinforcements from Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Reps. Mike McCaul, R-San Antonio, and John Carter, R-Round Rock.

Cornyn sits on the Senate Judiciary Subcommittees on Immigration, Refugees and Border Security and the Terrorism, Technology and Homeland Security panel. McCaul chairs the Homeland Security Committee in the House and Carter chairs the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee.

Abbott’s office declined to comment; Cornyn and Carter did not respond to requests for comment.

McCaul, who referred questions to the Homeland Security Committee, previously called on DHS to “develop a strategy to gain operational control” of the border.

“Over the last several years, Congress has provided billions of dollars to secure the borders, but without an end goal in mind,” McCaul said in a statement…

Trump Looking To Jumpstart Legislation Declaring Muslim Brotherhood A Terrorist Organization – WorldNetDaily
.

.
President-elect Donald Trump is reportedly preparing to jumpstart a bill in Congress that would ban the Muslim Brotherhood by declaring it a terrorist organization.

Trump foreign-policy adviser Walid Pheres told Egyptian news outlet Youm7 that the legislation, introduced a year ago by U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was held up due to the Obama administration’s support of the group. But Trump plans to back the bill.

Cruz’s bill, the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2015-16, identifies the Brotherhood and three of its offshoots, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations and Islamic Society of North America, as a terrorist organization.

The Brotherhood is already banned as a subversive organization in Russia and at least five Arab countries, including Syria, Saudi Arabia and its home base of Egypt…

Republicans Control Over 1,000 More Seats In State Legislatures Than They Did When Obama First Took Office – The Hill
.

.
The Democratic Party will hit a new nadir in state legislative seats after suffering more losses in November’s elections, highlighting the devastation up and down the party across the nation.

Republicans will control 4,170 state legislative seats after last week’s elections, while Democrats will control 3,129 seats in the nation’s 98 partisan legislative chambers.

Texas GOP Introduces Constitutional Carry Bill Eliminating Handgun License Requirement – Fury News

Liberals and their asinine gun policies might fly in places like New York, but deep in the south, having a firearm is just a way of life for many Americans. Now Texans are taking their love of guns a step even further, introducing a Constitutional Carry bill that would allow citizens to freely roam with their guns in tow, without the need for a gun permit.

Republican State Rep. Jonathan Stickland has filed for a Constitutional Carry bill, and believes that policy would in fact help curb gun violence in the state.

Gun advocate and handgun license instructor Michael Cargill is all for the bill, saying that if you’re able to possess a gun, you should be able to carry it out in the open without a permit.

But gun-hating liberals in Texas are very apprehensive about the bill, saying this type of measure would not keep firearms out of the hands of children and criminals.

We’ll see if the bill gets any backing. So far, Representative Stickland is very optimistic, and says he hopes to get support from fellow legislators and get the bill referred to committee. He also believes that there will be an even bigger push for constitutional carry, than open carry in his state…

DOJ’s Civil Rights Head Has Been Working In Violation Of Federal Law For Over A Year – CNS

Vanita Gupta, the acting head of the U.S. Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, apparently has been working in violation of federal law for more than a year and a half.

That may render all of the official actions she has taken during that period – lawsuits, demand letters, hires, you name it – “void” and of no effect.

To deter presidents from trying to get around the Senate’s constitutional “advise and consent” role in executive branch appointments, Congress passed the Federal Vacancies Reform Act in 1998. A key section of the law sets restrictions and time limitations on how long someone can remain as the “acting” official in a position that must be confirmed by the Senate.

The assistant attorney general for Civil Rights is one such position, according to the “Plum Book,” the official list of all such positions in the executive branch that is published by the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act, when an office that requires Senate confirmation becomes vacant, “the first assistant to the office of such officer shall perform the functions and duties of the office temporarily in an acting capacity subject to the time limitations of section 3346.” The time limitation set by that section is 210 days.

The law stipulates that, if the president submits a nomination to the Senate, the 210-day limit can be extended as long as the nomination is pending in the Senate. But it also stipulates that if an acting officer violates this time limitation, all actions taken by that individual “shall have no force or effect.”…

Leftist Assmonkey Who Smashed Trump’s Walk Of Fame Star Charged With Felony Vandalism – KTLA

James Otis said he was prepared to pay the consequences after admitting last month that he vandalized Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

More than three weeks after the incident, the activist and heir was charged with one count of felony vandalism.

Otis, 52, is scheduled to be arraigned Friday in downtown L.A., the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Thursday.

Otis used a pick axe and sledgehammer on Oct. 26 to smash the star with the name of Republican presidential candidate, now president-elect. The early morning stunt was was captured on camera on Hollywood Boulevard.

“I admitted my mistakes and am now dealing with my consequences, unlike Mr. Trump, who has never admitted what he’s done,” Otis said at a news conference after he was released from jail. “And that’s why I destroyed the star; I broke the law.”

Otis was arrested the morning after the vandalism. He said he “had to do it” and that he planned the “nonviolent action” for six weeks.

He planned to sell the star and donate the proceeds to women who have accused Trump of sexual assault.

If convicted as charged, Otis could be sentenced to up to three years in jail.

An heir to the Otis Elevator Co. fortune, Otis said his great-great grandfather invented Listerine…

President Asshat Releases Detained Haitian Migrants – Breitbart
.

.
News about President Obama’s Administration releasing hundreds of Haitians after the election will likely trigger a new pull factor similar to the one currently being experienced in south Texas, says a border patrol union leader.

Breitbart Texas has been reporting on the waves of Haitian immigrants who have been working Mexico’s lax system to get to the U.S. border and request asylum. The move has overwhelmed detention capabilities and prompted Mexican officials to warn about the possible spread of diseases.

On Thursday afternoon, the AP quoted an unnamed U.S. government official who claimed that “releasing immigrants with orders to report later to immigration court is a tactic used when detention space is scarce, under certain humanitarian conditions or as part of efforts to keep families together.”…

Secret Service Can’t Find Thousands Of Guns, Phones, Badges And Cars – Daily Caller

Thousands of sensitive assets belonging to U.S. Secret Service agents, including firearms, computer laptops, work badges, telephones and even motor vehicles, have been lost during the past 15 years, according to documents obtained by nonprofit government watchdog Judicial Watch.

“This is supposedly an elite law enforcement agency – how did all this equipment get stolen?” or lost. “This is alarming. Every American should be alarmed about this,” Judicial Watch’s Irene Garcia told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Secret Service agents reported 11,780 lost or stolen assets between fiscal years 2001 and 2016, according to the data Judicial Watch received, although the agency didn’t distinguish between lost and stolen items.

A total of 121 “weapons/pistols” were lost or stolen from 2001 through 2016, including 69 in 2002 alone. The Secret Service also reported 736 cell phones, 571 badges and six vehicles as lost or stolen in that same period.

But uncategorized or “all remaining” assets account for 4,644 of the 11,780 lost or stolen items. More assets were lost or stolen in fiscal year 2004 than any other year – 1,362, most of which were uncategorized.

This new information suggests that sporadic news reports in recent years about the Secret Service agents losing cell phones and guns were snapshots of a larger problem…
