Trump Didn't Violate Campaign Finance Laws

The Weekly Standard and Trump


President Trump is being criticized for this tweet:

From Mediaite:
President Donald Trump danced on the grave of The Weekly Standard today and was immediately criticized for taking that tone on the news of a respected conservative magazine shutting down.

Veterans of the Weekly Standard reacted, along with others who found it unseemly Trump would cheer this on.
This is rich.

The same voices that mercilessly, brutally attacked Trump incessantly are now finding Trump's comment on the Weekly Standard's demise unseemly.

They can dish it out, but they can't take it.

Scott Walker Still Governor

Scott Walker is the governor of Wisconsin.

He's doing what Wisconsinites elected him to do.

Tony Evers will not be the governor until January 7, 2019.

Efforts to get Walker to abdicate his responsibilities as governor is the real attempt to diminish executive authority.

7-Year-Old Girl Dies in Border Patrol Custody

The deception is disgraceful.

Judge Reed O'Connor: ObamaCare Unconstitutional

From AP and FOX News:

The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, was struck down by a Texas judge on Friday, a move that could suddenly disrupt the health insurance status of millions of Americans. The decision comes amid a six-week open enrollment period for the program.

Texas, along with 19 states, had argued to U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor that they had been hurt by a jump in the amount of people utilizing state-backed insurance. When Congress cut the tax penalty from the program in 2017, the states claimed, it essentially undercut the Supreme Court’s reasoning for finding former President Barack Obama’s signature legislation constitutional in 2012.

“The remainder of the ACA is non-severable from the individual mandate, meaning that the Act must be invalidated in whole,” O’Connor wrote in a 55-page opinion, according to Bloomberg. O'Connor is a conservative Republican appointee who previously blocked other Obama-era policies.

O'Connor is a "conservative Republican appointee."

But Chief Justice John Roberts said, "We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges."

Roberts said, "What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them. That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for."

Remember that O'Connor is part of that independent judiciary, that extraordinary group of dedicated judges.
