"A friend invited me to a citizenship ceremony in Brooklyn on Wednesday, held at the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York. I arrived around ten, assuming that I would witness the ceremony up close. But that’s no longer permitted, at least not in Brooklyn. The court’s charmless bureaucrats instead pen friends and family in a third floor room with a soundless television, through which the ceremony is beamed terribly. It is next to impossible to see anything and the absence of sound makes viewing pointless anyway.
Annoyed by this scene, which might as well have been a crummy airport lounge in a Third World country, I walked outside. I was told that the impossible-to-hear citizenship ceremony (for us) would wrap up around 11:30 or noon, at which point friends and family could greet the new Americans on the second floor as they streamed out of the court room. Out of sheer boredom, I decided to go down to the second floor early and could hear the judge bellowing at the newly sworn-in Americans through the closed door. A few other friends and family of new citizens had the same idea and we compared notes on the possible identity of the loudmouth judge.

“It is Judge LaShann DeArcy,” someone said. Her full name is LaShann Moutique DeArcy Hall. She is an Obama appointee, naturally, and she is astonishingly obnoxious. Talk about an entitled judicial activist, whose ego is as expansive as her name.
Her speech to the new citizens, to the extent that I could hear it, was appalling. Sounding like a Democratic Party ward boss, she urged the new citizens to vote as soon as humanly possible. She made voting sound like a tremulous act of self-defense against the country they had just joined. Then she started in on some ludicrous riff about the First Amendment, encouraging the new Americans to exercise that right as robustly as possible, including by “taking a knee.”
A product of Howard University, which is a conveyor belt for anti-American snots, Judge LaShann DeArcy is exceedingly full of herself, even more than the president who appointed her. In her glib “take a knee” rhetorical pyrotechnics, she showed no respect for the country to which she has taken an oath. Her pitch was outrageously at odds with the duties of a judge. For one thing, who asked her to give a long harangue to new citizens? When did that become a routine practice?....." - READ MORESo here we have a radical black federal court judge with a second rate law degree, who just turned a room full of foreign born into proud "legal" American citizens and her first piece of advice to them is to disrespect the nation, to boycott the American flag they have just been handed and consider themselves an "oppressed" class in some world-class chutzpah and classic nostalgie de la boue! What it shows is how distorted the idea of patriotism and citizenship is on the left that should not be infecting the judiciary, and so incredible to hear it in this piggish bigot in a robe instructions to America's newest citizens. This to me is infuriating as hell.
CFP - The Senate Minority Leader on Tuesday attempted a double bank shot of claiming that Brett Kavanaugh shouldn’t be confirmed for the Supreme Court because Michael Cohen copped a guilty plea. Schumer chose the position he’s in and he can squirm in it every day as far as I’m concerned. Schumer is under intense pressure from the increasingly unhinged liberal base to do everything he can to stop Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed. In reality, there is nothing he can do and he knows it. But he has to act the part, and if that means grasping at absolutely ridiculous straws (no unusual feat for him), then damn it, that’s what he’s going to do.
Donald Trump no longer has the constitutional authority to nominate Justices to the Supreme Court? Who says? Not you, not me and certainly not the Constitution. But Chuck Schumer says it, not because he believes it, but because he has to say something to keep the barbarians from storming the gate, so why not?
"It is unseemly for the President of the United States to be picking a Supreme Court Justice who could soon be, effectively, a juror in a case involving the President himself,” Mr. Schumer declared, picking up a trope that has quickly become part of the liberal echo chamber. Senators Mazie Hirono (Hawaii) and Ed Markey (his own private Idaho) cancelled meetings with Judge Kavanaugh, with Mr. Markey saying he is now an “illegitimate” nominee.
So let’s see. Donald Trump is the elected President with the power of appointment under the Constitution, but because his former lawyer has pleaded guilty to evading taxes and paying off a couple of Mr. Trump’s alleged mistresses, Mr. Trump no longer enjoys the powers of the Presidency under Article II. This novel interpretation of presidential authority somehow eluded James Madison." - WSJ
This is not going to change a single vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation, and Schumer knows it. What’s more, Kavanaugh is not going to be a “jurist” in any criminal case involving Donald Trump. Schumer has a history of making declarations about process and principle that completely contradict previous statements he made on the exact same subjects, with the only variable being which party happens to be in power at the moment. He knows he contradicts himself and fears no consequences precisely because he knows the mainstream media will never call him on it. - READ MORE
