The World is in Turmoil, but America is not Oz

No nation can prudently open its doors to every refugee on earth; it is time for a global response and the shared burden of responsibility

Published

When you add it all up – serfdom, indentured servitude, slavery, the Holocaust, genocide, ethnic cleansing, earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, dust bowls, pandemics, epidemics, famine, wars, human trafficking and every day skirmishes – within the annals of human history, it’s evident that a significant portion of the population has experienced, or has ancestors who have experienced horrendous times, conditions, or upbringings.

No Let Up

As we proceed towards eight billion people in the world, humankind doesn’t appear to be progressing, en masse, toward some more hallowed state, wherein we learn to share the planet effectively. Ancient rivalries and hatreds, some lasting thousands of years, seem to be as molten today as they were in antiquity:

Consider the Sunnis versus the Shias, Irish Protestants and Irish Catholics, Albanians and Serbs, Armenians and Turks, Tutsis and Hutus, Jews and Palestinians, Japanese and Chinese, Indian and Chinese, everybody and Chinese, Indonesians and Malaysians, and Assamese and Bengalis, among dozens of others.

Today, Muslim attacks on Christians are occurring worldwide. Christians are not the instigators. Persecution of Jews is occurring in unprecedented ways, on many levels, particularly in France, but alarmingly in Great Britain, Germany, and the U.S, as well as in other supposedly enlightened nations, largely fomented by extremist Muslims in general, but in the U.S, by Leftists in particular.

Statute of Limitations

With so many people here and abroad descending from ravaged lineages, how much acknowledgment should surviving members receive? Is anyone to be entitled because of what happened 100, 500, or 1000 years ago? What is the expiration date on special status? Or is there none?

When does engendering a “protected class” impinge upon the rights of everyone else? How long should the state be responsible for the income and livelihoods of those who are downtrodden, even if legitimately so? Where is the sunset clause that says after so many years of welfare, it’s time to get going on your own?

What about our immigration policies? Socialism, extreme poverty, and corruption in South America and particularly Latin America leads to untold masses who want to escape to America. What do you do with the actual family at the border? Let them all in, ahead of those who have followed legal channels? The situation is like the ship Exodus – which countries are willing to take in the poor and persecuted?

This is Not Oz

Those who, to this day, have experienced indentured servitude or slavery; genocide, earthquakes, other natural disasters; pandemics and epidemics; and man-made hostilities and skirmishes, cannot come to our shores or our southern border en masse, where we will accommodate them in such numbers that our sovereignty will eventually be lost.

The Cuban refugees, most recently, are deemed by many to have the worthy cases. Biden and Company, however, shuns potential future Republicans, in favor of orchestrated groups walking up from Latin America, who are likely to be future Democrats, or at least will become a drain on our resources.

On balance, in America, we cannot prudently open our doors to every refugee on earth, even in our own hemisphere. Nor can any one nation. It is time for a global response and the shared burden of responsibility.

This is How Far Left-Wing State Bars Are Now Going to Destroy Conservatives: Prosecution

Published

on

State bars have acquired a reputation for targeting conservative attorneys and destroying their ability to practice law, and now they are taking it to a new level — prosecution. It is practically unheard of — unless you’re being targeted — to be criminally prosecuted and arrested for not checking a box about an unrelated civil matter on a form, but that is what is happening to former Republican congressional candidate Jeffrey Moffatt.

Moffatt, who many believe was targeted by the State Bar of Arizona because he and his wife both ran for office as Republicans, was indicted a week ago by the Biden administration related to his efforts fighting back against a sketchy disbarment. He is being retaliated against because of how hard he’s fought back. A good prosecutor can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, as the old saying goes. That’s because the defense doesn’t get a chance to show their side to the grand jury, so the prosecutor can just pick and choose what evidence they want to produce.

In 2016, the presiding judge of the Arizona bar, William J. O’Neil, who has a lengthy history of corruption, including allegedly protecting a sexual predator, so bad that even the liberal Arizona Republic has written about him, disbarred Moffatt over something that other attorneys receive a mere slap on the hand for. But unfortunately, once an attorney has been disbarred in one state, almost every other state and jurisdiction reciprocally refuse to allow that attorney to practice law. It sounds draconian, and the effect sure is, but multiple jurisdictions piling on doesn’t make a person any worse. The left controls much of the legal system, particularly state bars, so it’s done deliberately when they want to thoroughly destroy someone.

Notably, even though Moffatt lives in California and the person who complained about him lives in New Mexico, neither the California bar nor the New Mexico bar did anything about the complaint, only the Arizona bar — and Moffatt has practically nothing to do with Arizona or practicing law there — pursued an investigation, no doubt as part of its pattern of going after conservative attorneys.

The prosecution comes down to the fact Moffatt didn’t disclose to the Social Security Administration that he was disbarred when representing claimants. There is NO requirement that people representing claimants be attorneys, it’s a red herring. Moffatt didn’t think he needed to disclose this information because he was actively fighting the disbarment, fully expecting to get it reversed since it was so obviously heavy-handed targeting. He wasn’t hiding the disbarment and his fight either, he has four federal lawsuits going over it and he and his wife have been very vocal on the internet.

The indictment lists just five payments he received for representing those clients, totaling merely $30,000. The Biden administration is charging him with wire fraud and falsifying a material fact. Whenever the government can’t get someone on a real crime, they throw in wire fraud. It merely means a method of communication like a phone, email, text or fax was used while you were supposedly committing some other crime. It sounds scary but it’s just meant to pile on.

In 2017, Moffatt sued the Arizona Bar, the State of Arizona and the Arizona Supreme Court over the disbarment. He has ongoing proceedings with the Social Security Administration fighting the disbarment going back to at least 2018 — so why bring criminal charges against him now over something they were perfectly happy to civilly litigate with him for three years?

Obviously, by fighting back he got under the skin of a Democrat on a power trip. The U.S. Attorney who signed the indictment, Tracy L. Wilkison, was appointed immediately after Joe Biden took office as president.

Efforts have arisen around the country to strip state bars of their monopolies over the practice of law — essentially functioning as unions, which is illegal in right-to-work states — but havent had any real luck yet. State bars have deep pockets because they gouge attorneys with huge mandatory dues. Their powerful lobbyists buy RINO legislators who oppose any legislation dismantling the bars.

The Moffatts believe that O’Neil was unconstitutionally seated — a judicial imposter who committed false impersonations. Many attorneys in Arizona believe he was put in that position in order to do the dirty work of powerful leftists at the top of Arizona’s legal system, accumulating so much dirt on people that no one would dare try and remove him.

Moffatt’s wife Star, who has spent a considerable amount of time investigating O’Neil’s corruption, said, “Some day, the Arizona Supreme Court will have to answer to a higher power why they condoned O’Neil to commit acts of a ‘Judicial Imposter.’ Tell me how in the world does an attorney like my husband get arrested for exposing O’Neil? O’Neil was also previously admonished by the Arizona Supreme Court for exceeding his jurisdiction and authority on death row cases.”

One of the top former prosecutors in Arizona told me, “I have never seen such a gross abuse of prosecutorial power, to arrest and pursue someone merely for not checking a box. Nowhere in the indictment does it even say how Jeff continuing to represent these individuals caused any harm or that the law even prohibits him from representing them. Since he’s not required to be an attorney, it sounds like a violation of equal protection.”

Moffatt is filing a motion to dismiss the indictment. Tellingly, O’Neil unexpectedly resigned about six months ago. Moffatt and his wife are wonderful people who have spent years volunteering and serving on the board of Miracle Star helping people with substance abuse problems. When some of the women had no place to go, they put them up temporarily.

This is just the beginning, expect more conservative attorneys to be prosecuted after disbarment. Trump’s attorneys are next, including Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell. If a conservative attorney fights back too hard trying to expose corruption in the legal system, the leftists who control that arena will retaliate with prosecution. And sadly, judges like O’Neil are rarely punished.

Tucker: Biden’s botched drone strike killed kids

Finally, this afternoon, the Biden administration was forced to stop lying.

Published

on

Tucker explores emerging facts about the recent drone strike that killed several civilians, including children, in Afghanistan … and what the Biden administration isn’t doing about it.

Highlights include:

“The administration at that moment needed something to prove they are not senile and incompetent; they are instead decisive and strong. And what better way to do that than to kill people?”

“So that day the US military bombed a white Toyota in a residential complex not far from the Kabul airport. The White House touted that strike as a demonstration of our over-the horizon military capabilities in Afghanistan.”

“Soon, however, a few people started to ask the obvious questions. For example, who exactly had the US military killed? When asked, the defense department wouldn’t say. Oh, that might have been a tip.”

“Neither John Kirby nor anyone else at the Pentagon ever corrected that story.”

“But the New York Times did, to their rare credit. More than a week ago, the New York Times ran a piece revealing, with video evidence, that the Biden administration’s drones did not actually kill anyone from ‘Isis K,’ whoever they are, assuming they exist. The drone killed a civilian aid worker in a car full of kids.”

“Finally, this afternoon, the Biden administration was forced to stop lying.”

“After consulting with our inter-agency partners … we’re admitting that we lied to you for weeks about what we actually did.”
