National Review Defends DOJ Conspirator Rod Rosenstein

Published

on

National Review ran a piece Saturday defending Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein from reports that Trump is considering firing the disgraced official.

Trump told reporters “You figure that one out” when asked if he planned to fire Rosenstein, who signed an application to renew a FISA warrant on President Trump’s team. That FISA warrant was predicated on a false anti-Trump dossier compiled by Fusion GPS and paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, with the FBI re-imbursing some of the costs of the opposition research project.

Sadly, some establishment conservatives support the anti-Trump Deep State conspirators, as evidenced by the fact that donor Paul Singer funded Fusion GPS’ smear project early in the election through Washington Free Beacon, an outlet that he finances, which is run by neocon Bill Kristol’s son-in-law Matthew Continetti.

Heather MacDonald writes for National Review’s The Corner, trying to appeal to conservative sympathies on behalf of the pro-Rosenstein cause:

“Rumors that President Trump is contemplating sacking Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for his role in the controversial Carter Page FISA warrant should be dispiriting to anyone who supports the police against the lies of the Black Lives Matter movement. Rosenstein is under fire for seeking a renewal of the Page FISA warrant without disclosing to the FISA court the role of Fusion GPS and the Clinton campaign in producing some of the information in the warrant request. (None of the three previous Justice Department officials who had sought renewals disclosed to the court the Fusion GPS connection, either.)   If Trump fires Rosenstein, he will deprive the Justice Department of one of its most articulate defenders of proactive policing. Rosenstein has unapologetically and forcefully rejected the Black Lives Matter narrative….Trump must not let his desire for vengeance in the Russian collusion investigation overcome a cool assessment of Rosenstein’s contributions to the cause of public safety.”

This is not entirely surprising, coming from the magazine that ran an infamous “Against Trump” cover during the Republican primaries. MacDonald, meanwhile, is a Manhattan Institute fellow who has been praised by neocon NeverTrumper Ben Shapiro.

But it underscores the fact that partisan allegiances are disappearing from the Trump Wars. One side wants the hyper-political weaponization of the intelligence agencies to end.

The other side, to paraphrase Ms. MacDonald, is letting its desire for vengeance against Trump to overcome America’s cool assessment of corruption in our government.

San Francisco Board of Elections to Allow Non-Citizens to Vote

Published

on

After two failed votes, the San Francisco Board of Elections has finally attained its goal of allowing illegal immigrants to vote in local elections.

“Monday the Department of Elections Issued Voter Registration Forms for non-citizens who are eligible to vote for members of the San Francisco Board of Education in the November 6th 2018 election,” says an ABC San Francisco report. “The measure passed in 2016 with a close vote of 54 percent to 46 percent following two failed previous attempts.”

San Francisco will be the first city in California to allow illegals to vote.

“We want to give immigrants the right to vote,” said Supervisor Norman Yee who represents District 7.

Immigrants already have the right to vote – legal ones, that is. But the political left continues to make a mockery of the American immigration system, spitting in the faces of everyone who comes to this country legally.

“As a parent myself and a former member of the SF Board of Education it is critical that the voices of all parents are at the table particularly those that have historically been denied a voice in the process,” said Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer who represents District 1.

Some sane people disagreed with the vote.

Harmeet Dhillon, Republican National Committeewoman from California voted against the measure in 2016, and spoke out against the latest vote.

“The reason I voted against it is that I think the right to vote is something that goes along with citizenship and should be,” Dhillon said. “I don’t think that people who have otherwise tenuous ties to San Francisco given their lack of legal residence should be making long term decisions about that structure and process.”

Now, the only requirement to vote in the San Francisco Board of Education election is being a resident of the city who is 18 years of age at the time of the election.

The measure allows illegals to vote through 2022, unless the city permanently adopts the ordinance.
