Trump DOJ Declares Obamacare Unconstitutional – Declares That ALL OF IT Should Be Stricken Down…

POTUS Trump continues to work hard to keep yet another campaign promise to the tens of millions who elected him by doing all he can to see the disastrous Obamacare healthcare law dismantled and thrown into the scrap heap.

Via Breitbart:

WASHINGTON, DC – The Trump-Barr Department of Justice (DOJ) informed a federal appeals court on Monday that it agrees with Texas and the other states suing over Obamacare that President Donald Trump’s repealing of the individual mandate renders the entire law unconstitutional, and therefore should be struck down in its entirety.

This all turns on the legal doctrine of severability. Much of the time when a statute is unconstitutional it is actually only partially unconstitutional. Typically a court will strike down that part of the law, but sever it from the rest of the statute and uphold the remainder.

Pundits who have never studied or litigated severability will surely show up on television now posing as experts, and criticizing DOJ’s position. But writing as a former law school faculty member who authored the largest academic work on severability doctrine ever published, permit me to describe the argument and why it should be taken seriously.

President Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010 when a Democrat-controlled Congress passed that statute without a single Republican vote in either the House or Senate. Various plaintiffs immediately filed suit. In the biggest lawsuit, a majority of states in the nation – along with the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) and several private individuals – filed suit in Florida, arguing that the ACA was unconstitutional.

The plaintiffs raised multiple constitutional issues. At the heart of the legal challenge is the doctrine of enumerated powers: The Constitution gives the federal government only limited powers, and so every provision of every law Congress passes must be authorized by one of the provisions of Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution.

One constitutional objection to the ACA was that Section 1501 of the ACA – which is the individual mandate that requires Americans to buy health insurance – is unconstitutional, because Congress’s constitutional power to regulate interstate commerce in Article I, Section 8, Clause 3 of the Constitution does not include the power to order human beings to buy something, thereby entering into the commercial realm where the government can regulate them.

Section 1201 of the ACA is the preexisting condition provisions of “guaranteed issue” and “community rating,” which ensures that no person attempting to purchase insurance can be denied coverage, and that a person cannot be charged more because of preexisting conditions. Section 1501 mandates that everyone buy insurance to offset the effect of the multi-billion-dollar costs arising from Section 1201.

President Trump has had a major impact on the Fifth Circuit through his judicial appointments. Proven constitutional conservatives like Judges Don Willett, Jim Ho, Andy Oldham, and Kyle Duncan now sit on that court, under the mentoring of the fearless originalist Edith Jones and the libertarian-leaning Jerry Smith.

Regardless of how the Fifth Circuit rules in the case, the fact remains that the fifth vote to win at the Supreme Court is still Roberts. Many believe that his reasoning was such a stretch to save Obamacare the first time that he would find another rationale to do so now.

While that might be true, it does not need to be true. It is possible that the chief justice could play it straight from his 2012 reasoning, in which case the ACA should be struck down without the tax authorization.

It is also possible that President Trump will fill another Supreme Court vacancy before this case is decided by the Supreme Court – a decision that could come in 2020 but is more likely to come in 2021 – in which case Roberts’ vote might not even be necessary.

Suddenly, Obamacare is back in the legal crosshairs. If it falls under this legal challenge, President Trump would have a clean canvas on which to design fundamental market-based reforms to provide healthcare security and freedom for millions of Americans.

The case is Texas v. United States, No. 19-10011 in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

—————————-

Those last few paragraphs above outline something very important regarding the Trump White House. It has managed to reorganize much of the federal government in a way that gives a great deal of power back to the people. The president has done so almost entirely on his own. Democrats oppose him. Many Republicans oppose him. And certainly the far left media opposes him. But in the end, he continues to outmaneuver them all to such a degree of success that even his supporters are amazed.

To anyone who thought President Trump was giving up the fight to improve the nation’s healthcare system they haven’t been paying attention. He is a man who doesn’t appear to know the meaning of the word quit.

REPORT: CLINTONS’ DOJ DEAL WITH FBI EXPOSED

Rules for thee but not for me. So goes the sad reality of politics in America. While the Establishment Media attempts to distract with story after story of a college admissions scandal, or a shooting tragedy across the globe, the real news breaking in the U.S. this week involves some serious Deep State shenanigans whereby ruling class members like the Clintons and Obamas are allowed to do what they want when they want without fear of repercussions.

DOJ Deal With FBI on Clinton Foundation

In one of the most explosive parts of Strzok’s testimony, he revealed that the Department of Justice struck a deal with the FBI not to investigate the Clinton Foundation emails.

Then-majority general counsel Zachary Somers asked Strzok if the “the Clinton Foundation was on the server.”

Strzok said he believed that it was “on one of the servers, if not the others.” However, he noted that there was an agreement between the DOJ and Hillary Clinton that the FBI was not allowed to search Clinton Foundation emails for that information.

———————

The signficance of the above testimony cannot be overstated. The Clintons were allowed to dictate terms to the FBI and the DOJ and that could not have happened without the approval of the Obama White House. Evidence was destroyed by the Clintons, secret tarmac meetings, undeniable proof of a Deep State attack against an incoming President of the United States (who remains far removed from the D.C. Deep State machine) on and on and on this sordid tale of political corruption at the very highest levels of our government goes.

REPORT: Hillary Clinton Would Be In Jail Today If Obama DOJ Hadn’t Ordered Stand Down On Investigations

Remember that famous presidential debate line by then-candidate Donald Trump when he told Hillary Clinton if he had been in charge during the investigation into her private email server (among other things) that she’d “be in jail”? Well, a breaking report out this week provides some serious substance to the presidential debate boast.

If not for the (improper) protection/intervention of the Obama DOJ, Hillary Clinton would very likely be in jail by now.

Lisa Page admitted Obama DOJ ordered stand-down on Clinton email prosecution, GOP rep says

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page admitted under questioning from Texas Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe last summer that “the FBI was ordered by the Obama DOJ not to consider charging Hillary Clinton for gross negligence in the handling of classified information,” the congressman alleged in a social media post late Tuesday, citing a newly unearthed transcript of Page’s closed-door testimony.

Page and since-fired FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, who were romantically involved, exchanged numerous anti-Trump text messages in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election, and Republicans have long accused the bureau of political bias. But Page’s testimony was perhaps the most salient evidence yet that the Justice Department improperly interfered with the FBI’s supposedly independent conclusions on Clinton’s criminal culpability, Ratcliffe alleged.

…Responding to the transcript revelations, Trump on Wednesday tweeted: “The just revealed FBI Agent Lisa Page transcripts make the Obama Justice Department look exactly like it was, a broken and corrupt machine. Hopefully, justice will finally be served. Much more to come!”

Federal law states that “gross negligence” in handling the nation’s intelligence can be punished criminally with prison time or fines, and there is no requirement that defendants act intentionally or recklessly.

Originally Comey accused the former secretary of state of being “grossly negligent” in handling classified information in a draft dated May 2, 2016, but that was modified to claim that Clinton had merely been “extremely careless” in a draft dated June 10, 2016.

———————

So, in summary, the Deep State shielded Hillary Clinton from justice while orchestrating a still-ongoing hoax of investigations against President Trump.

That isn’t democracy. That’s centralized, authorititive, and overtly abusive power that continues to attempt a coup of a duly elected President of the United States.

It’s going to be very interesting to see how the Trump administration responds as well as his tens of millions of supporters.


 

Deep State Caught: “So She Lied. BFD. No One At DOJ Is Going To Prosecute.”

This is sure to get your blood pressure spiking. (yet again) So many have said so many times how the rules don’t apply to certain globalist politicians, right? Well, here are some FBI agents communicating that very thing regarding Hillary Clinton’s closet confidante, Huma Abedin, after thousands of classified/critical docs were found on her unsecured laptop – and she lied about it. (A BIG no-no.) This was near the end of the 2016 campaign. Huma was photographed on the Clinton campaign in tears. (She knew she was in big-big trouble.) Then, inexplicably, all that trouble went away. -Poof- Vanished. No doubt the Clintons called in some big favors to some high-ranking Deep State officials and Huma and Hillary were off the hook – again. Check it out for yourself…

“No one at DOJ is going to prosecute.”

A non-secure laptop. Classified docs exposed. Lies. These are all offenses that far exceed anything, say, Michael Flynn has been accused of by the Mueller investigation. Flynn’s life was turned upside down. He’s facing bankruptcy defending himself.

As for Huma and Hillary – nothing. The FBI agent’s comments make it so very clear – they were all given the stand down order. It didn’t matter what they found, how many times Huma lied about it, NOTHING WAS GOING TO BE DONE ABOUT IT.

That’s not a free and fair society. That’s a two-teir system by which some don’t have to follow the rules applied to everyone else. That’s the world of the Clintons, the Obamas, and all those within the Deep State who are now attacking the outsider Trump White House.

If that doesn’t make you angry then you don’t deserve America. You deserve whatever it is America’s enemies intend to replace her with.

ALERT: Congressman Mark Meadows Calls For Rod Rosenstein To “Resign Immediately.”

The #2 at the DOJ who also happens to be overseeing the fake Mueller investigation, Rod Rosenstein, should step down immediately following new information obtained by Congress this week. That is coming directly from Congressman Mark Meadows following a lengthy interview he held with FBI lawyer James Baker. 

In other words—something’s up and Mr. Rosenstein is definitely in the crosshairs. 


 

BREAKING: FBI Agent Confirms The Plot To Remove Trump Is Real

The Deep State Media Complex is working hard to bury this report.

Don’t let them.

READ. SHARE. EDUCATE.

October 09, 2018 – 05:59 AM EDT
Former FBI lawyer: Plot to record, remove Trump not a joke

Don’t tell former FBI general counsel James Baker that those now-infamous discussions about secretly recording President Donald Trump and using the tapes to remove him from office were a joke.

He apparently doesn’t believe it. And he held quite the vantage point – he was on the inside of the bureau’s leadership in May 2017, when the discussions occurred.
Baker told Congress last week that his boss – then-Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe – was dead serious about the idea of surreptitiously recording the 45th president and using the evidence to make the case that Trump should be removed from office, according to my sources.

Baker told lawmakers he wasn’t in the meeting that McCabe had with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in which the subject came up. But he did have firsthand conversations with McCabe and the FBI lawyer assigned to McCabe, Lisa Page, about the issue.

“As far as Baker was concerned, this was a real plan being discussed,” said a source directly familiar with the congressional investigation. “It was no laughing matter for the FBI.”
Word of Baker’s testimony surfaces just days before Rosenstein is set to be interviewed in private on Thursday by House Judiciary Committee lawmakers.

Since The New York Times first reported the allegations, Rosenstein, the No. 2 Department of Justice (DOJ) official, has tried to downplay his role in them. His office has suggested that he thought the discussions were a joke, that Rosenstein never gave an order to carry out such a plot, and that he does not believe Trump should be removed from office.
But making those statements through a spokesperson is a bit different than having Rosenstein himself face Congress and answer the questions under penalty of felony if lawmakers think he is lying

Baker’s account to lawmakers this month clearly complicates an already complicated picture for Rosenstein before Congress, assuming he shows up for Thursday’s interview.
But even more so, Baker’s story lays bare an extraordinary conversation in which at least some senior FBI officials thought it within their purview to try to capture the president on tape and then go to the president’s own Cabinet secretaries, hoping to persuade the senior leaders of the administration to remove the president from power.
Even more extraordinary is the timing of such discussions: They occurred, according to Baker’s account, in the window around FBI Director James Comey’s firing. Could it be that the leaders of a wounded, stunned FBI were seeking retribution for their boss’ firing with a secret recording operation?

I doubt this is the power that Congress intended to be exercised when it created the FBI a century ago or the circumstances in which the authors of the 25th Amendment imagined a president’s removal could be engineered.

This wasn’t a president who was incapacitated at the time. He was fully exercising his powers – but in a way the FBI leadership did not like.
And that makes the FBI’s involvement in the tape-record-then-dump-Trump conversations overtly political – even if Rosenstein believed the whole idea was farcical.

Keep in mind, this is the same FBI that, a few months earlier during the 2016 election, had its top counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok talking to Page – his lover and the top lawyer to McCabe – about using their official powers to “stop” Trump in the election and having an “insurance policy” against the GOP nominee. That insurance policy increasingly looks like an unverified dossier created by British intelligence operative Christopher Steele – a Trump hater himself – that was bought and paid for by the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton’s campaign through their mutual law firm.

“You walk away from the Baker interview with little doubt that the FBI leadership in that 2016-17 time-frame saw itself as far more than a neutral investigative agency but actually as a force to stop Trump’s election before it happened and then maybe reversing it after the election was over,” said a source directly familiar with the congressional investigation.
Baker provided some other valuable insights in his congressional interview. As I reported last week, he revealed that he accepted information in the Russia investigation from a lawyer for the Democratic National Committee.

And my sources also confirm Baker admitted he received a version of Steele’s dossier from left-leaning reporter David Corn of Mother Jones magazine, and then forwarded it to Strzok’s team. Corn says that occurred in November 2016, right after the election.

That transaction is significant for two reasons. First, at the time Steele had just been fired from the FBI probe for leaking to the media and he wasn’t supposed to be further assisting the probe. So Corn essentially acted as a back door to allow information to continue to flow.

Secondly, the FBI was using the news media as an investigative source outside the normal chain of evidence.
Whatever you think of Rosenstein or the Russia probe, the statements Baker made to Congress have implications for all Americans.

The FBI was created to investigate crimes and stop foreign intelligence and terrorism threats. It was never designed to be a broker in the political process of elections or the execution of the 25th Amendment.

Democrats Scramble To Halt Trump Order To Declassify FISA docs – “They Are Absolutely Terrified.”

Seems the Democrats (and likely some Republicans) are wailing in fear over President Trump’s recent order to declassify FISA docs related to the Trump/Russia collusion hoax. Consider this: If the president had a DOJ working for him instead of against him, those responsible for perpetrating that hoax and attempting to subvert democracy in America would likely already be in jail.

As it is, Mr. Trump has had to largely go it alone in D.C. as he continues to work very hard to drain the swamp on behalf of the American people.

BREAKING: Rod Rosenstein Is Now Under Investigation (VIDEO)

 It was a huge announcement by former U.S. District Attorney and current powerhouse lawyer, Joe DiGenova last night when he announced that Rod Rosenstein, the high-ranking DOJ official at the center of the Trump/Russia hoax, is now under investigation. If true it is confirmation of the long-standing rumors that the Trump White House has quietly been moving against the Deep State with its own investigations and one or more very significant bombshell revelations are about to drop. Rosenstein has been a highly effective Deep State firewall at the DOJ, slow-walking document requests and giving vast powers over to the anti-Trump Mueller investigation.


 

Mueller Drafted Anti-Trump “Resistance” Members From FBI To Join Special Counsel Investigation

UPDATE: The “FBI Attorney #2” in question has been removed from the Mueller team. Seems this only happens after evidence of collusion by Mueller finally escapes. How much more is he hiding as he attempts to revise the outcome of the 2016 Election?

——-

Ignore the Establishment Media spin that has been at the ready since the IG investigation into the Clinton email scandal began. While leftist pundits declare “nothing to see here” the IG report clearly points to rampant abuses within both the FBI and DOJ, as well as hints at some very serious misdeeds surrounding the ongoing Mueller investigation. For instance, why was Robert Mueller bringing in members of the anti-Trump “resistance” from inside the FBI to be a part of his team? (And as you ask that question you should know many of these incriminating emails were just obtained but a month ago – the FBI and DOJ have been covering up their existence for months.

What is being attempted against President Trump is a Deep State coup – and that coup continues…


 

Don’t Believe The BackTrack – Feds WERE Wiretapping Cohen To Conduct Surveillance On President Trump

The news broke and then both outrage from Trump supporters and glee from Trump detractors, ensued. 

The problem for federal investigators is the initial NBC story revealed potential and very significant illegalities in what they were doing. A swift call was made. NBC updated the story and now the Mueller investigation holds its breath hoping it dodged a potential bullet.

IT DIDN’T. 

All evidence as originally detailed by the NBC report points to the federal government using a president’s longtime personal attorney to surveil a sitting president. Such a move is unprecedented. If this had been done during the Obama years the Establishment Media mob would be demanding jail time for the offenders and the Justice Department would be moving double-time to accommodate them.

The Cohen/Trump surveillance wasn’t just phone calls – it was allegedly ALL electronic communications as outlined by NBC – an outline NBC is now desperate to hope people will forget. Note how the information is said to be undeniable fact. Why is that? Most likely because it came from the same Mueller sources that have been leaking to NBC and other media outlets since its illegal investigation into President Trump began: (see below)

The Deep State was caught by its own eagerness to push its anti-Trump media-driven narrative.

If Jeff Sessions were acting anything close to a real Attorney General, he would be calling in any and all associated with the Trump witch hunt and proceeding with a scorched earth shutdown and then following up with charges filed against the investigators – including Robert Mueller.


 

IG Report Outlines How Obama DOJ Worked To Shut Down Investigation Into Clinton Crime Syndicate

Lost in the haze of the Syria bombing, the Establishment Media’s purposeful ignorance, and the ongoing ripples following the stunning FBI raid on the offices of President Trump’s longtime attorney, is the scathing outline by the Inspector General regarding how the Obama Department of Justice aggressively shut down what was to be a widespread investigation into the Clinton Foundation looking into allegations of widespread financial crimes.

Talk about obstruction of justice!

Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitten caught the Clinton Foundation information within the IG report and is doing his best to get the word out even as the Establishment Media covers the eyes and ears of the American public in order to keep that information largely unknown:

There were rank and file FBI agents said to be increasingly frustrated that their efforts to investigate the Clinton Crime Syndicate were being halted at every turn. This move to insulate the Clintons (and likely the Obama White House) from damage was overseen at the highest levels of the FBI and Obama DOJ. These same high-level Deep State figures are the very same ones who have been orchestrating the ongoing attacks against President Trump – attacks that likely continue to be orchestrated by the Obama/Jarett Machine with input from the Clintons. (Like what took place during the secret tarmac meeting between then Obama AG Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton. Top officials at the FBI refuse to hand over documents regarding that meeting due to their being “highly classified” even though both Lynch and Clinton claim they just talked about the weather and their grandkids.)

The Deep State continues to believe it controls the narrative. It’s up to all of you to prove them wrong.

READ. SHARE. EDUCATE.


 

They’re Scared: Former Obama AG Lynch Gives “Damage Control” Media Interview

On the surface, it appears to be a sit-down interview with a former Attorney General primarily meant to allow her the opportunity to defend the Department of Justice and her own increasingly troubled legacy. In reality, it is an example of carefully crafted damage control with the full involvement and support of NBC.

The Obama and Clinton Machines are pushing Loretta Lynch out there to lay the protective groundwork for their own survival in order to prevent their mutual destruction as POTUS Trump is said to be ready and willing to reveal some shocking details involving Obama, Clinton, Lynch, Comey, and others later this month.

Sr. Congressional Oversight Member: EVERYTHING From Fast & Furious, Benghazi, IRS, & Other Obama Scandals Connected To Corrupt DOJ & FBI

Congressman Paul Gosar didn’t hold back in a recent interview and he’s now begging the American people to pay more attention and demand answers from their political leaders. According to Gosar, the Obama White House micromanaged everything from drone attacks to illegal surveillance on political opponents and was able to do so via very carefully placed DOJ and FBI firewalls that to this day continue to insulate Barack Obama and other Obama-related officials, from justice.

Via Breitbart:

Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), a leading conservative member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, told Breitbart News Daily on Wednesday that he believes that there is an interconnectivity between various high-profile Barack Obama-era scandals and the latest revelations about corruption at the Department of Justice and FBI.

Gosar was asked during the interview on the SiriusXM 125 Patriot Channel show about the corruption on display in the release of the famed memo from House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) that detailed FISA court abuses by the FBI and DOJ in the lead-up to the 2016 election and in the months that followed now President Donald Trump’s win during the transition and even during his presidency.

That all came before the release of new text messages between senior FBI officials Lisa Page and Peter Strzok that detailed how Obama himself was overseeing everything personally on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and rivaling Trump probe. Gosar detailed how this same corruption that is now being further exposed first reared its ugly head in the earliest days of the administration of now former President Barack Obama, with the Operation Fast and Furious scandal then the IRS and Benghazi scandals—all of which had intricate levels of DOJ and FBI involvement.

If you don’t think the [Operation] Fast and Furious—attacking the Second Amendment—along with Operation Choke Point, you know that sacred amendment that holds our government accountable and protection for all the other amendments, if you don’t think Benghazi and the lack of accountability when they knew something was going to come, if you don’t think that the IRS and the attacking of your adversaries financially, and the unmasking are unrelated things, think again,” Gosar said.

“You know, this previous administration—the Obama administration—micromanaged everything out of the White House. And I challenge people, remember the Syrian strikes that were actually handpicked and dictated by the president at that time. This gentleman was involved in everything. That’s where all this leads. When you look at the cover-up with the email scandal with Hillary Clinton, it gets—it should have pointed out exactly what we’ve been talking about, that this was the weaponization of our Justice Department not only to cover up for the previous administration and the wrongdoing and ills of them and those associated with them, but also to attack a sitting president—actually a candidate at the time, then president-elect and then a current, sitting president you know of an opposition party. This is outrageous, and you are exactly right we have got to get to the bottom of this so that people are held accountable because that is what America wants. But it’s going to be a hard, slow slog trying to get this information out. But it’s coming, as witnessed by the memo from Devin Nunes and as witnessed by Grassley and Graham and new revelations and the Inspector General—don’t forget Michael Horowitz sitting out there as well.”

Gosar is a key member of the House Oversight Committee who led the way in pushing to hold now former Attorney General Eric Holder accountable for Fast and Furious. He was one of the first members of Congress to demand Holder’s resignation, and helped lead the effort to hold Holder in both criminal and civil contempt of Congress for his refusal to be transparent about the matter.
