Obama: American Nationalism is “Hatred For Somebody”

Published

on

Former President Obama lashed out at the vision of American nationalism articulated by his successor, President Donald Trump, while speaking Tuesday at Rice University in Houston, Texas.

Obama expressed his distaste for nationalism– expressing his view that contemporary nationalist movements were based not upon “pride in country, but hatred for somebody on the other side of the border.” Obama tried to make an excuse for the inability of establishment liberal politics to respond to nationalist sentiment- alleging that the establishment had failed to “adapt quickly enough to the fact that there were people being left behind [by globalization].”

According to the former President, tens of millions of Americans are consumed with “hatred” towards Mexicans and Central Americans. Yet, the fact is that the United States has accepted more migrants from Latin America and across the world within recent history than any previous time in American history. It will never be enough for the former President, and Americans who express a desire for the most reasonable immigration restrictions will be defined by their “hatred.”

Obama would go on to bemoan the rise of alternative media, expressing a sense of nostalgia for a media environment akin to the 1980’s in which “your news cycle was still governed by the stories that were going to be filed by AP, the Washington Post, maybe the New York Times, and the three broadcast stations.”

How inconvenient for the former President that the legacy dinosaur mainstream media no longer possesses an exclusive chokehold on informing the people.

Appeals Court Refuses to Expunge Joe Arpaio’s Contempt Conviction After Presidential Pardon

A judge isn’t happy about the pardon.

Published

on

A federal appeals court is refusing to expunge former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpario’s contempt of court conviction, after the sheriff was granted a presidential pardon by President Trump.

Such a legal move is rare if not unprecedented for the recipient of a presidential pardon. Usually federal and state court systems dismiss the convictions of people granted presidential pardon.

Arpaio was convicted of contempt of court in 2017 for refusing to change the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department’s practices after a judge mandated that the agency cease immigration raids.

Three judges of the liberal San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court upheld a ruling from a lower circuit court refusing to expunge the legal record of Arpaio’s conviction. The move sets new legal precedent for a recipient of a presidential pardon.

Arpaio was a frequent target of Eric Holder and the Obama administration, often coming under intense DOJ scrutiny for the practices of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department.

Arpaio ran for the United States Senate in 2018, coming in third in the Republican Primart behind Martha McSally and Kelli Ward. He’s now running for his old position as Maricopa County Sheriff once more at the ripe age of 87.

In any case, presidential pardons have traditionally resulted in dismissal of criminal convictions in federal and state courts. It’s hard to think of the 9th Circuit’s decision to maintain the conviction as anything more than a political slight to President Trump.
