Trump’s Loyal Aide Stephen Miller Launches Legal Group to Sue Biden Administration

If you followed my other blog RRW over the Trump years, you know that the Leftwing NO-borders groups and the refugee contractors sued Trump for every move he made to limit immigration and attempt to reform refugee resettlement policy.

Fighting back! Stephen Miller, 36, wants to make the Biden team miserable…

Now, Stephen Miller, surely one of the few aides outside the President’s own family who was with Trump from the campaign (joined the campaign in January 2016) and through all four years of the administration is launching a new legal outfit to sue Biden on immigration and to defend a whole host of other America First policies.

You can read a boring version of the news at Politico which argues that there are plenty of rightwing legal outfits (there are not!) so why create another one, or read a progressive slam at Miller here yesterday at something called laughably The American Independent.

White nationalist Trump adviser now working with GOP to sue Biden over immigration

 

(Editor:  Just know that they wore out the word “racist” so anyone who believes in America First is called a “white nationalist.” Get used to it!)

Stephen Miller’s new group is advising states that are suing the Biden administration to block its policies.

Stephen Miller, a white nationalist and senior aide in the Trump White House, is working behind the scenes through his organization America First Legal to assist Republican attorneys general who are suing the Biden administration over immigration issues.

Miller was responsible for designing some of the Trump administration’s key policies targeting immigrants, including the separation of immigrant children from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border and the ban on travelers from Muslim-majority countries entering the United States.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday, Miller disclosed his group’s work behind the scenes.

“My organization has been working with several of the states that are now suing the Biden administration over their lawless and reckless policies, including, for example, the states of Texas and Arizona,” said Miller.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing the Biden administration over what he and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt call President Joe Biden’s “arbitrary and capricious decision” to rescind Donald Trump’s “remain in Mexico” policy of forcing immigrants seeking asylum to stay in the country in possibly dangerous conditions until their claims were processed.

Mark Brnovich, Arizona’s attorney general, is suing the Biden administration for halting construction of Trump’s wall on the U.S. southern border and having “embarked on multiple environmentally disruptive policies without performing even cursory environmental analysis.”

Miller announced the launch of America First Legal on April 7, telling the Wall Street Journal that in addition to fighting the policies of the Biden administration, the group plans to oppose police reform and challenge tech companies and other businesses whose positions run counter to those held by conservatives.

In addition to the child separation policy and the ban on Muslims coming into the country, while in the White House Miller also zealously pursued policies to severely limit the number of refugees who could enter the United States.

 

Here Oliver Willis, the American Independent reporter, attempts to make fun of Miller but instead shows his ignorance of history as he reports on the time Miller schooled CNN’s Jim Acosta on the Statue of Liberty.

 

Don’t let anyone use the Emma Lazarus scam on you! See my 2015 post at RRW where I reported on the history of the poem which was added to the statue later. These Leftwing propagandists are dumb, or devious, or both! https://refugeeresettlementwatch.org/2015/07/31/dont-let-them-use-the-lady-liberty-b-s-anymore-remove-the-poem/

Asked by reporter Jim Acosta in 2017 whether his anti-immigrant policies violated the spirit of Emma Lazarus’ poem “The New Colossus,” with its exhortation, “Give me your tired, your poor/Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” attached to the base of the Statue of Liberty, Miller argued against the statue as a symbol of welcome, saying, “The Statue of Liberty is a symbol of liberty and light in the world. It’s a symbol of American liberty lighting the world. The poem that you’re referring to that was added later is not actually part of the original Statue of Liberty.”   

Yup, Miller was right.  Jim Acosta and reporter Willis are ignorant.  Willis goes on….

Miller’s white nationalist views were evident before he worked for Donald Trump.

Tangle Chairman Joe’s team in legal knots!  Turnabout is fair play and I, for one, love it!

If you wondered where I was yesterday, I was busy at RRW on a post that couldn’t wait until my weekly round-up.  See that Biden has the refugee contractors in a tizzy because he is on target to admit a lower number of refugees than Trump ever did.

Biden is on Track to Admit Fewer Refugees Than Trump

Pentagon to Root-Out White Extremists, but Silence on Black Man in Recent Shooting

I’ve been checking every day or so to see if there is news, any news, on the Navy medic, Fantahun Girma Woldesenbet, who attempted to kill two fellow Navy men in Frederick, Maryland a week ago.

I figured by today the military would be ready to report a motive for the attempted murder of a white Corpsman and a Hispanic Corpsman, but nothing.

Speculation is that since the shooter’s name is common in Ethiopia that he is an immigrant from Africa either directly or as first generation. But, we will likely never hear any further information because the shooting does not fit the media narrative.

 

We don’t know much more than what was reported in the day or so after the attack. Was new American Woldesenbet on a mission, or was he (just) a nutcase?

And, it took a day for a photo of the shooter to be released—released by Frederick Police—not directly by the Navy. Perhaps they were forced to release it because people were sending photos of other black men around on social media claiming they were Corpsman Woldesenbet.

From Heavy.com:

Fantahun Girma Woldesenbet Photo: Frederick Police Release First Picture of Shooting Suspect

 

Frederick Police released the first photo of shooting suspect Fantahun Girma Woldesenbet this afternoon, the day after they say he shot two Navy sailors and was fatally gunned down at Fort Detrick.

Woldesenbet, a U.S. Navy hospital corpsman, allegedly wounded two people at a military installation about 10 minutes from Fort Detrick, a U.S. Army base where he worked Tuesday, April 6, 2021. He was shot and killed at the base when officials said he fled a stop at a checkpoint and brandished a gun at about 8:45 a.m. He was 38 and lived in Frederick. The two injured victims survived.

More here,  but there isn’t much.  Seems the story is being dropped down the memory hole.

And, maybe that is because the military is busy, busy, busy attempting to root- out the white supremacists Biden and Harris are sure are hiding within the ranks.

Meanwhile, only days after the Maryland shooting, the Pentagon’s new chief says the hunt is on for the extremists, an undertaking clearly inspired by the January 6th demonstration at the Capitol.  The Biden cabal believes they are insurrectionists.

I would like to know someday if Fantahun Girma Woldesenbet is an extremist of some stripe, but we will likely never know.

From Newsmax:

Defense Secretary Memo Addresses Extremism in US Military

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin III signed a memo on Friday in which he calls for “immediate actions” to weed out “extremist behavior” in the military.

Defense Secretary Austin’s mission: “…combat this scourge.”

The new orders come after Austin spoke with advisers and reviewed the results of the Defense Department-wide stand down issued in early February.

The memo said, “The vast majority of those who serve in uniform and their civilian colleagues do so with great honor and integrity, but any extremist behavior in the force can have an outsized impact.”

A study begins today!

Austin has commissioned a study “on extremist behavior within our Total Force, to include gaining greater fidelity on the scope of the problem.” And this group will meet around April 14 and be given 90 days to submit their “recommendations for medium-range and long-range plans to combat this scourge” to Austin.

Say it Out Loud! The Great Replacement is Underway

Drive the Democrats crazy, use the word “replacement” every time you mention the invasion at our southern border!

We know that the word, used in conjunction with the word “great,” is strictly verboten by the Leftwing gatekeepers of the language and not just in America but in Europe as well where migrants are “swarming” the continent.

Tucker Carlson opened his show last night with a 20- minute monologue you must not miss explaining how mass migration is changing America by changing he people which happens to be on my logo at RRW.

But, you dare not say what Carlson said, “Demographic change is the key to the Democrat Party’s political ambitions.”

His show last night follows days of criticism for what he says are his “unauthorized conversations” about the driving force behind Biden/Harris immigration policies.

Unauthorized by the Anti-Defamation League and others.

See that Fox is (so far?) standing behind Carlson as the ADL demands his firing.

Fox stands behind Tucker Carlson after ADL urges his firing

Here is the kind of speech that the ADL and other extremists on the Left find intolerable, saying it is white supremacy straight up.  And, it is what Carlson says is the “central idea of the modern Democrat Party.”

During a guest appearance Thursday on “Fox News Primetime,” Carlson “embraced a foundational theory of white supremacy,” the ADL said.

During the show, Carlson said “the left and all the little gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical if you use the term ‘replacement,’ if you suggest that the Democratic Party is trying to replace the current electorate of voters now casting ballots with new people, more obedient voters from the Third World.” He added that he had “less political power because they are importing a brand new electorate.”

Rather than me writing more about what Carlson said, watch for yourself (hat tip: Cathy).

Did you know that California now has the highest poverty rate in America as an example of where the great replacement is well-advanced?

 

 

If you have been scratching your head and wondering how could Biden and Harris be so stupid to open our borders so completely.

New American voters and consumers!

Scratch no more! They aren’t stupid! That is the plan!

All of those thousands of children entering the US on a daily basis will never leave and will in a few short years overwhelm formerly Republican states as new American voters.

Chamber of Commerce types will see them as a never-ending source of cheap labor and as consumers who will need to purchase stuff—homes, cars, and Chinese made everything!

Now repeat after me, and say it often (for fun, and to drive the Socialists nuts):

It is the great replacement!  R-E-P-L-A-C-E-M-E-N-T!

Poll: Only 24% of Americans Approve of How Biden/Harris Handling the Border Crisis

Uh-oh, is the bloom coming off the rose for the Biden Administration?

More importantly is Biden handling immigration so abysmally that his chances of getting any sort of comprehensive immigration reform (the holy grail for the Dems) diminishing with each photo of kids in cages.

Keep the photos coming!

Forget about the AP’s spin on the findings in their new poll, here at The Seattle Times, and look at the data they have dredged up.

Nothing funny about it. Border assignment could “complicate her political future.” https://www.politico.com/news/2021/03/29/kamala-harris-border-immigration-478435

Yes, Americans want the ‘children’ properly and safely cared for, but over-all they don’t support mass immigration.

I am assuming Harris, waiting in the wings to replace Chairman Joe when his health finally crashes completely, doesn’t want to be associated with Biden’s immigration mess and is thus hiding from their Ha! Ha! 81 million voters on the issue of border security.

Indeed what did their voters think they were getting.

AP-NORC poll: Border woes dent Biden approval on immigration

 

WASHINGTON (AP) — More Americans disapprove than approve of how President Joe Biden is handling the sharply increasing number of unaccompanied migrant children arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border, and approval of his efforts on larger immigration policy falls short of other top issues — suggesting it could be a weak point for the new administration.

LOL! Don’t you just love the AP’s opening paragraph. No kidding!  A weak point!  Voters love Biden on everything  AP wants you to know, but maybe not so much on immigration!

Here is the data:

 

Of course we expect those polled will virtue signal and say the kids, actually mostly teenagers, should receive safe treatment. That is not the big news here.

See how the AP spins this graphic below while the real takeaway is this:

A majority 53% of Americans say it is a high priority to have a secure border with another 31% saying it is a moderate priority. 

Only 29% think that it’s a high priority to legalize those who came here illegally.

 

 

Read it all here.   

And, then see this…..

We demand to know if migrants will be placed in our towns!

While we are on the subject of polls, see the Washington Times report yesterday about a poll that shows that most Americans want notification, and an opportunity to say NO!, if illegal aliens will be moved by the feds into their communities.

Public wants veto over releasing illegal immigrants into communities: Poll

Americans overwhelmingly support giving communities a say in whether illegal immigrants will be released into their communities, according to new polling released Tuesday.

Nearly eight in 10 people said it was important “for authorities to inform and obtain elected community leaders’ approval before relocating migrants to communities across the country,” the survey found. Support for the idea was strong across all political ideologies.

Keep reading and see that 80% are also worried about the migrants bringing COVID in with them.

Even Biden/Harris’s own voters are increasingly unhappy with what they are seeing and just imagine how much higher the numbers would be if all of the mainstream media was honestly reporting on the border crisis.

Your assignment: continue to wrap the border crisis around the Dems necks, not just as a political tool, but because border security is essential to our very survival as a sovereign nation.

Let’s hope and pray it isn’t already too late.

Are US Attorneys Over-reaching in their Zeal to Get Capitol Rioters?

The January 6th event at the US Capitol has likely slipped from your personal radar screen.  Could that be because it’s a tangled legal web or maybe because the mainstream media has moved along now that Biden’s legal eagles are faltering a bit in making their “insurrection” case.

Capitol ‘rioters’ taking in the beauty of the Capitol rotunda. They could have done an incredible amount of damage had they wished to…

 

The case they are attempting to make is that certain pro-Trump conservative groups had a well-organized plan to attack the US Capitol on January 6th to halt the certification of Biden as the next president of the United States, and possibly kill lawmakers.

They are having trouble finding a plan and judges are noticing.

Maybe you noticed this AP story making the rounds in newspapers large and small.  The story appeared in my local paper on Sunday.

Prosecutors struggle with consistent story in Jan. 6 cases

BOSTON (AP) — There’s little doubt the Oath Keepers were planning for something on Jan. 6. The question at the heart of the criminal case against its members and associates in the attack on the U.S. Capitol is: What, exactly, did they intend to do?

Authorities suggested for weeks in court hearings and papers that members of the far-right militia group plotted their attack in advance in an effort to block the peaceful transition of power. But prosecutors have since said it is not clear whether the group was targeting the Capitol before Jan. 6.

Fellow Obama-era US Attorney love birds! I spent some time searching for a photo of the zealous Justice Department attorney Kathryn Leigh Rakoczy. Although I found no professional pic, I did find this fluffy puffy New York Times story about her marriage to a co-worker in 2015, both 33, who married at the Woman’s National Democratic Club in Washington. Why this news warranted a NYT story is beyond me. https://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/03/fashion/weddings/first-due-diligence-then-romance.html

“The plan was to unlawfully stop the certification of the Electoral College vote … and the plan was to be prepared to use violence if necessary,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn Rakoczy said during a hearing this month. But the Oath Keepers “did not know precisely the way in which force and violence might be needed to support this plan,” she said.

Authorities are still combing through a sea of evidence in what they say is likely the most complex investigation ever prosecuted by the Justice Department. More than 300 people are facing federal charges and more are expected. The most serious charges have been brought against 10 people described as members and associates of the Oath Keepers and several members of another far-right extremist group, the Proud Boys.

Rakoczy over her skis?

But as the sprawling investigation has unfolded, prosecutors have sometimes struggled to maintain a consistent narrative and had to walk back statements made in court hearings or in papers. It has created an opening for defense attorneys to try to sow doubt in the case.

“The government presented a theory (without evidence) that there was a weeks long plan to invade the Capitol,” an attorney for one of the Oath Keepers, Jessica Watkins, wrote in a recent court filing. “There was no such plan.”

In one case, prosecutors declared in court documents in January there was “strong evidence” the pro-Trump mob aimed to “capture and assassinate elected officials.” The Justice Department quickly clarified it had no such evidence, blaming it on a miscommunication between prosecutors.

After she was pressed by a judge in a recent hearing, Rakoczy conceded authorities “do not have at this point someone explicitly saying, ‘our plan is to force entry into the Capitol in order to stop the certification,’” but cautioned that the investigation is ongoing.

[….]

Prosecutors have also apparently been unable to get on the same page about what to say to the press.

A judge recently scolded the Justice Department over a “60 Minutes” interview during which the prosecutor who was leading the investigation suggested some of the rioters could face sedition charges. Former acting District of Columbia U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin’s interview appeared to violate Justice Department rules and Sherwin is now under internal investigation, a prosecutor told the judge.

Judge orders pretrial release of key Oath Keeper charged in Capitol attack

The decision is a setback for the Justice Department as it seeks to show that some elements of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol were part of sophisticated and organized cells intent on violently blocking the transition of power.

Rakoczy argued that Thomas Caldwell, a 65-year-old Navy veteran who never entered the Capitol on January 6th, remain in custody saying:

…. that Caldwell presents a risk of violence because he and his allies expressed continued belief that the election was stolen even after Jan. 6.

Those factors still exist for them,” said assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn Rakoczy, “that the current political order is something that is problematic and should not be followed.”

Basically she is saying Caldwell should remain in custody because he still believes the election was stolen!

The judge disagreed and released Caldwell to home detention saying that the government’s evidence “falls short of the burden they need to prove he’s a danger to the community if released pending trial.”

The Conservative Treehouse has a story on the government’s faltering arguments here a few days ago:

Media Starting to Admit Federal Prosecutors Have Scant Evidence Against January 6th DC Protestors as Judges Start Asking Questions

 

According to the AP story this case “is likely the most complex investigation ever prosecuted by the Justice Department” so there is a lot at stake for the Dems, for Biden and for up-and-comers like Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn Rakoczy.

Is “complex” just a nice way of saying that they are having trouble proving their case that what we witnessed was a well-planned effort to overthrow our government that would justify a witch hunt and constrain our freedom—freedom of speech and assembly.

Oh, and by the way, what happened with Hunter’s laptop? Or, the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax? And, where is Durham?
