House Democrat Calls for DHS Investigation Due to Nigel Farage’s Attendance at Trump’s Tulsa Rally

A U.S. Congressman is demanding that Department of Homeland Security (DHS) produce documents regarding Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage’s trip to the U.S. to attend President Donald Trump’s rally in Tulsa, Okla. this past weekend.

Farage was granted an exemption to a travel ban due to a “national interest” clause and was seen at the rally on Saturday holding a red “Make America Great Again” hat. Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), who serves as chair for the homeland security committee, believes this is a scandal that federal resources must be deployed in order to investigate.

“The decision of the Trump Administration to admit Mr. Farage to the United States to enable him to attend a campaign rally at a time when most travel from the United Kingdom to the U.S. has been suspended raises numerous troubling questions, as does the claim that such travel was in the national interest,” Thompson wrote in a letter addressed to acting DHS secretary, Chad Wolf.

The DHS attempted to rectify concerns about Farage’s travel to the U.S. to attend the rally in a statement released to The Independent.

“On June 19, Mr Nigel Farage, the leader of the United Kingdom’s Brexit Party, was denied boarding while attempting to fly from the United Kingdom to the United States,” they wrote.

“The initial denial of boarding was made pursuant to a March 14 presidential proclamation that, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, suspends the entry into the United States of certain foreign nationals who recently have been present in the United Kingdom,” they added.

However, the administration quickly sprung into action so this renowned British patriotic hero, who has contributed so much to the anti-globalism movement, could lawfully travel to the U.S. and join the Trump rally.

“After conducting a thorough review of the relevant facts and circumstances, DHS determined Mr Farage’s travel to be permissible under section 2 (a)(xi) of the presidential proclamation: any alien whose entry would be in the national interest, as determined by the secretary of state, the secretary of homeland security, or their designees authorizing Mr. Farage to board his flight,” they wrote.

U.S. customs has banned “most individuals, other than United States citizens and lawful permanent residents, who have been physically present within the United Kingdom, excluding overseas territories outside of Europe, or the Republic of Ireland within 14 days of travel to the United States” since March.

Thompson hopes to make a mountain out of this molehill in order to go after President Trump because Russia-gate and the impeachment hearings failed to accomplish much of anything.

Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee

Interesting timing.

Published

on

Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.

It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.

The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.

A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
