Jeanine Pirro: Obama’s “Allowing Wholesale Rejection of Federal Law”

The senseless death of Kathryn Steinle in San Francisco, last week, spurred a much needed conversation around illegal immigration and sanctuary cities.

In this week’s Justice with Jeanine Pirro, the Judge took aim at sanctuary cities, and their defenders.

“I for one am sick and tired of this politically correct nonsense. What is correct about allowing a career criminal who should not have been here in the first place, to walk the streets?” Pirro exclaimed.

Later she noted that although we are all immigrants, “but most of us came here pursuant to the rules.” She added, “The happiest days for me as both a sitting DA and and judge, was when I welcomed newly naturalized citizens who worked hard to get here and pledged their allegiance to America.”

“What to do?” she asked. “I’ll tell you what to do – you enforce the law.”

As she ran a scroll of victims murdered by illegal immigrants, Pirro turned her attention to the president – who likes to repeat, “our immigration system is broken.”

“I’ll tell you what’s broken Mr President,” she seethed,”the hearts of American families who have lost loved ones at the hands of illegals who repeatedly commit crimes that you let walk the streets.”

She noted that Obama was allowing the “wholesale rejection of federal law by sanctuary cities,” citing an Obama diktat from 2010 in which he openly stated that cities that violated immigration laws, would not be punished.

Charleston Shooter’s Friends Knew Stuff and Didn’t Tell Anybody

Two of the Charleston shooter’s friends gave interviews today sharing information that suggested they could have prevented Wednesday night’s massacre if only they had told authorities what they knew.

Justin Meek, a friend of Dylann Storm Roof, told Greta Van Susteren Thursday night that his friend had taken his gun back from his mother a couple of weeks ago. Dylann had gotten the gun in April – a gift from his dad for his 21st birthday – even though he would have failed a background check if he had tried to buy a gun for himself.

Roof was charged with felony possession in February, 2015:

According to South Carolina court documents exclusively obtained by Radar, Roof, 21, was arrested in Lexington County on felony charges of possession of cocaine, methamphetamine and LSD on February 28, 2015.

***

Two months after he’s charged with a felony his father buys him a gun?

According to Meek, Dylann’s mom had confiscated the gun because she didn’t trust him with it.

Also – there was the small matter of giving a gun the someone who is ineligible to own one -which is considered a “straw purchase” and a felony.

Via Gateway Pundit:

Another friend had information that was even more alarming. According to Dalton Tyler, Dylann had been “planning something like that for six months” because he wanted “to start a civil war.” Um?

Dylann Roof, the alleged gunman authorities say is responsible for killing nine people in a predominantly black Charleston, South Carolina, church Wednesday night, had been “planning something like that for six months,” according to his roommate.

Dalton Tyler, who said he has known Roof for seven months to one year, said he saw the white, 21-year-old suspect just last week.

“He was big into segregation and other stuff,” Tyler said. “He said he wanted to start a civil war. He said he was going to do something like that and then kill himself.”

That is not the kind of thing you keep to yourself.

Tyler apparently didn’t know that Dylann had stolen the gun back from his mother. He told ABC that “Roof’s parents didn’t allow him to take that .45 home with him until just this past week.”

Clinton Camp Blocks Daily Mail Reporter From NH Events

A Daily Mail reporter with an eye for Clinton campaign plants was persona non-grata at some campaign events in New Hampshire, Monday.

David Martosko broke a story back in April exposing an “unscripted” Clinton campaign event in Iowa that turned out to be heavily choreographed with Democrat activists.

Martosko writes at the Daily Mail:

Driving through New Hampshire in the rain without knowing where you’re headed is an unnerving experience, but that’s where I found myself this morning after Hillary Clinton’s staff said I wouldn’t be allowed to do my job reporting on her campaign.

At the Clinton camp’s request, a group of journalists set up a traveling ‘pool’ so a single print reporter can be everyone’s eyes and ears at events where a room is too small to fit a crush of questions from a larger group.

Plus it saves more than a dozen news organizations the expense of having to be on the campaign trail every time Clinton decides to speak.

On Monday I was the designated ‘pooler,’ tasked by this informal group of my colleagues with going to two events in New Hampshire.

I landed at the Manchester, N.H. airport well after midnight, thanks to a lengthy flight delay in Washington. A message was waiting for me from one of the reporters who has the thankless task of coordinating the pool with the Clinton campaign.

There was a problem: Hillary’s press staff said DailyMail.com wasn’t welcome, and they decided it at the last minute.

The pool was asked to send a different reporter. It was too late to substitute someone else in the Live Free or Die state at that point, so I said I’d show up anyway.

Six hours earlier I had received emails from two different Clinton media liaisons – including the former secretary of state’s traveling press secretary, Nick Merrill – telling me where to show up and when.

So what happened? That’s the nagging question.

Monday morning I showed up at 7:45 in a parking lot where I was to hop on a Clinton campaign van for a drive to the town of Rochester, where the first event would be.

A very junior staffer told me I couldn’t climb aboard: I wasn’t ‘on the list.’

The Clinton Traveling Press Pool released a statement Monday evening to address the slight, saying, ‘Any Attempt By The Campaign To Dictate Who Is In The Pool is Unacceptable.’

“We would like to see all campaign events open to the public and the full press corps, but when that is not possible we have agreed to pool coverage,” McClatchy’s Anita Kumar wrote on behalf of the cited organizations below. “We haven’t yet had a clear explanation about why the pool reporter for today’s events was denied access. But any attempt by the campaign to dictate who is in the pool is unacceptable. The pool is open to any print organization willing to take part.”

Martosko appeared on the Kelly File with Megyn Kelly to discuss what happened:
Martkoso said that when the Clinton camp initially tried to bar him from being the pool reporter for the event, “to a man and woman” all the reporters from the news organizations said, “No. The Clinton campaign does not get to choose who covers them.”
He added, “this is the kind of thing you see in other countries we don’t want to emulate.”

As we reported earlier today, the Daily Mail’s editor for U.S. politics, David Martosko, was scheduled to be the pool reporter covering the Hillary Clinton campaign today. Team Hillary shut him out, just coincidentally a couple of days after Martkosko criticized some of the Clinton-covering media for their lapdog-ish behavior.

At an event Monday evening,  the Sec. Service agent wouldn’t let Martosko into the YMCA venue to go to the bathroom.  “Hit the woods,” he reportedly said.

State Dept. Whistleblower Scandal Coming Back To Haunt Hillary

corrupt-172653130405_xlarge

….On conservative websites, anyway. The MSM never had much of an appetite for this one.

Via the Washington Free BeaconThe Washington Examiner continues its reporting on the Clinton State Department’s efforts to cover up alleged misconduct with new details about investigations thwarted by agency staff:

State Department officials blocked investigations into potentially embarrassing allegations of misconduct from agency investigators and even inspector general staff during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.

A former official in the State Department inspector general’s office who was involved with preparing the sanitized report said agency officials also interfered in probes originating in the Office of the Inspector General.

The suggestions of political interference into investigations conducted at the bureau of diplomatic security first appeared in an inspector general report published in February 2013, just as Clinton was leaving the State Department. A Washington Examiner review of earlier drafts of that reportsuggested potentially damaging passages were removed from the final document. But the State Department official suggests the intervention went further.

The official, who requested anonymity, said the Bureau of Diplomatic Security initially prevented inspectors from reviewing open case files when they began their probe in late 2012.

Read the full report for all the gory deets.

Longtime readers of this blog should not be strangers to this story. I covered these allegations, and the State Dept’s retaliation against whistleblowers extensively in 2013. I’ve been wondering why it hasn’t been brought up until now.

Like so many other Clinton scandals – this one cluster-F alone (in a healthy, sane country) would be enough to derail her pathetic candidacy.

If she makes it through the primary without getting indicted, US demographics are such that she’s a sure thing in 2016 said Hugh Hewitt on the Adam Carolla Show, 6/11/15

Megyn Kelly: As America Caves on Free Speech… “the Jihadis are Officially Winning” (Video)

Megyn Kelly once again used her perch on Fox News, Wednesday night, to hammer the left (and some on the right) for their craven and cowardly stance on the terrorist attack that happened earlier this week in Garland Texas.

She opened her show by denouncing the “rush to condemn the event organizers” with “nary a mention of the radical Islamists who sought to murder them over a cartoon.”

Free speech is protected, Megyn said, “no matter how abhorrent.” She went on to point out that you don’t have to endorse it to defend it.

Kelly lamented the amount of focus there has been on scolding Pamela Geller’s group rather than the actual terrorists. “If this is where American sentiment stands on this, then the jihadis are officially winning,” she declared.

Kelly had Washington Post legal blogger, Eugene Volokh on to discuss the issue and got a few digs in on  CNN doofus Chris Cuomo, who made an ass of himself on Twitter, Wednesday.

No one in television media has been as solid as Megyn Kelly on the issue of free speech – with the possible exception of Sean Hannity.

Sean had Pamela Geller on with the infamous Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary to discuss whether Geller should be put to death for organizing a cartoon contest.

Yes, you read that correctly.

ISIS has of course, vowed to slaughter Geller and “everyone who houses her events,” and “gives her a platform to spill her filth.”
The New York Daily News reported Wednesday night that ISIS said in a posting on a message board that it was sending “all our Lions to achieve her slaughter.”

“Our aim was the khanzeer (swine) Pamela Geller and to show her that we don’t care what land she hides in or what sky shields her,” it said.

Interestingly, Geller told Hannity, the FBI and Homeland Security have not been in touch with her in the wake of these threats.

Choudary, who has been on Hannity’s show many times before, was asked point-blank, “Do you support this death threat against Pam Geller because she ran a free speech contest?”

Via Mediaite:

Choudary argued there’s a difference between cartoons of Mickey Mouse and cartoons of Muhammad, and said Geller went in “knowing full well” many Muslims consider blasphemy an issue worthy of the death penalty. Hannity went off and shouted, “You want her to de!”

Choudary said Geller should be put before a court and tried, and she would end up punished. Geller shot back, “To blame me and say that my cartoons are controversial… murdering cartoonists is controversial.”

Not surprisingly, they ended up getting in a huge shouting match:

(Geller told him to stop interrupting and at one point said “I know you’re used to stepping over women”), and Choudary told her she “knew the consequences.”

Pamela was having none of it – in fact, if looks could kill, Britain would have been one less Islamist asshole, Wednesday night.

Community Organizer in Chief Pays Lip Service To Fallen NYPD Officer

This young cop is the age of my oldest. So his death after being shot twice in the face by a feral street thug, has hit me hard. My heart goes out to his family.

The NY Post  reported decorated NYPD Officer Brian Moore died Monday with his stricken family at his hospital bedside.

“It’s just a horrible day,’’ said a tearful female off-duty cop as she left a pot of red carnations and blue balloon at the 25-year-old officer’s home in Massapequa, LI.

A grim-faced Police Commissioner Bill Bratton was seen entering Jamaica Hospital as news of Moore’s death Monday afternoon surfaced, and around the same time, two cops also went in — one carrying a pair of shiny shoes and the other a police dress uniform.
Bratton later hailed Moore — who was shot in the head in the line of duty in Queens on Saturday — as one of many cops who “do a great job, often with great valor.

“It’s with great regret and sadness that we announce the passing of New York City Police Officer Brian Moore. Shield number 469. New York City police officer, hero of the city, killed in the line of duty,’’ Bratton told reporters outside the hospital.

“In his very brief career, less than five years, he had already proven himself to be an exceptional young officer,’’ Bratton said. “In that career, he had made over 150 arrests, protecting and serving the citizens of this city.

“He had already received two exceptional police service medals and two meritorious police service medals. We don’t give them out easily.”

Brian Moore made all the right choices in his brief life but it was cut short by racial hatred and violence.

And who is fanning the flames of this racial hatred and violence? Oh well – look no further.

Via Twitchy, Obama made brief mention of Moore’s death before launching into his pre-planned narrative of the day: “Bashing the police.”

Chances are slim to none that he will send a contingent of White House officials to the fallen officer’s funeral – like he did for street thugs Michael Brown and Freddie Gray.

Obligatory boilerplate said with little emotion over 7:00 into his speech, after all the shout-outs. Obama has a tendency to speak out of both sides of his mouth in situations like this.

Here’s where the community organizer starts “feeling it.”

Heads up community. He’s in “organizer mode.”

Perhaps if Officer Moore and his partner had encouraged Demetrius Blackwell, instead of hassling him, Moore would still be alive, today.

It was the 400 years of oppression that made Blackwell do it.

The law is applied evenly. The problem is the law isn’t followed evenly. But a good community organizer knows he needs to “rub raw the resentments of the people.”  So that is exactly what this sorry excuse for a president does.

Obscene.

It’s going to be a long, hot, violent summer.

Baltimore City Councilman Explains Lack of Police Response, Last Night: “We Asked Them To Back Off”

On day two of the Baltimore riots, the inept city government was still giving the rioter, looters and pillagers “the space to destroy.”

Via Colin Flaherty, who says this is his favorite moment from the riots, last night:

And here via AoSHQ, is the unlucky owner of the liqueur store that was in the unfortunate “destroy” space.

Reporters asked the governor of Maryland why he was so slow to send in the National Guard.

Maryland’s Governor Hogan said it was Mayor “Space to Destroy”  Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s call – and she didn’t call. 

Some questioned why it took so long for the Guard to be activated, to which Hogan responded that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was slow to make the request. He said he executed the request 30 seconds after it was made. Rawlings-Blake had initially said she wanted to give to protestors the “space to destroy” their environment….

“When the mayor called me, which quite frankly we were glad that she finally did, instantly we signed the executive order. We already had our entire team prepared,” he said. “We were trying to get in touch with the mayor for quite some time, she finally made that call and we immediately took action.”

Last Fall,  the Democrat Governor of Missouri was accused of holding back the National Guard (at Holder and Obama’s request) when the city of Ferguson was in flames. Now we have Democrat politicians in Baltimore doing the same stupid thing – and you have to wonder – are they getting orders from above – or is this kind of toxic stupidity endemic throughout the party? Or both?

Yeah. As I noted at PJ Tatler. This is the kind of incompetence and insanity you can count of when progressives are put into positions of power.

Whether it’s a big-city mayor giving common street thugs posing as protesters “space” to destroy a city, or the leader of the free world giving radical Islamists “space” to destroy entire countries —  what you get is chaos, terror, bloodshed and tears.
