"The judges on the Ninth Circuit and in other jurisdictions who spin spurious theories to deny the president the authority clearly given by legislation and the Constitution—authority that other presidents have exercised without comment or rebuke—are misguided and should be corrected."
Who gets it right, President Donald Trump or Chief Justice John Roberts? The president earlier this week attacked “Obama judges,” whom he believes are erroneously interpreting the law and the Constitution to frustrate his administration’s policy initiatives. The chief justice told the Associated Press on Wednesday there is no such partisan thing.
The chief justice, like his great predecessor John Marshall, wants his court to be above politics. Perhaps Roberts believes that in rebutting the president’s attack on judges who are using politics rather than the law to make decisions, he will protect the judiciary from the charge that it is partisan, and thus help to preserve the noble American ideal that ours is a government of laws, not men.
But it is the president, not the chief justice, who is most faithful to our tradition in this case. For judges to make law, to depart from precedent and from original understanding—in other words, to ignore the strictures of the Constitution and our statutes—is to deprive us of self-government.

Our new governor is a former JAG officer and federal prosecutor. Our new attorney general is Ashley Moody, a former judge for the 13th Judicial Circuit Court in Florida.
There are large Republican majorities in both houses of the legislature. In addition, Governor DeSantis will appoint 3 new judges to the FL. Supreme Court on Jan 8, giving it a 6-1 conservative majority.
So with all the power of the state, executive - legislative - judicial, the solutions to Florida's mechanical and procedural voting problems are at hand. But the Democrat criminality aspect must also be dealt with.
Brenda Snipes in Broward Co. and Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher must be investigated, indicted, given a fair trial and then put in prison. Election Fraud is a felony.
WCTV – Democrats conceded in the races for U.S. Senate and governor, but not before Florida asked federal authorities to investigate possible election fraud conducted by the party.
The U.S. Department of Justice declined, but the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Office of Statewide Prosecution say they have an opened a criminal investigation into the allegations.
Evidence reported to the Department of State suggests a possible effort by Democrats to have voters fix ballots after the state’s deadline in at least four counties.

Tijuana officials said late Monday they had arrested 34 caravan members for drug possession, public intoxication, disturbing the peace and resisting police, and they would be deported to their home countries.

"More than 500 criminals are traveling with the migrant caravan that’s massed on the other side of a San Diego border crossing, homeland security officials said Monday afternoon. The revelation was made during a conference call with reporters, with officials asserting that "most of the caravan members are not women and children". They claimed the group is mostly made up of single adult or teen males and that the women and children have been pushed to the front of the line in a bid to garner sympathetic media coverage.
Homeland Security officials say there are currently 6,000 people in Tijuana waiting to be processed at the San Ysidro border crossing, with more on the way."

"The government of Mexico must be evaluating the possibilities of severe civil unrest unless they do something different; it is obvious the position of President Trump will remain unchanged.
Additionally, and importantly, Democrats realize they are on the wrong side of this issue as the majority of Americans -including their own constituents- do not want to see a mass influx of economic migrants. The shift toward silence from the media narrative engineers is transparent.
President Trump has a quiver full of consequential economic arrows that can be used to leverage Mexico into action. There is a decent possibility President Trump can utilize the growing crisis at the border to change the perspectives within Washington DC. "

With 84 of his judges already confirmed — 29 of them at the appellate level, a record number for the first two years of a presidential administration — Trump appointees make up one-sixth of the active judges on the federal bench. Transforming the federal bench is serious business for conservatives.
“This White House has made the judiciary a priority,” said Carrie Severino of Judicial Crisis Network, a right-leading advocacy group. “If they can’t pass legislation, liberals have used the courts to rewrite the laws,” she said. “It took a while for conservatives to realize what was happening and to push back.”
Republican senators plan to speed the latest batch of confirmations through its lame-duck session after this week’s Thanksgiving recess. And they have no intention of slowing the conga line in the new Congress, says Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), who is likely to succeed Grassley in January.
“If I’m chairman next year, we are going to do judges, judges, and more judges,” Graham said Wednesday. At least 86 more Trump-nominated judicial candidates are waiting to be confirmed.

“Campaigns are meant to be vigorously debated contests of ideas and competing visions for the future. The campaign for governor achieved this objective as evidenced by historic voter turnout from people of all parties across our state.
But campaigns of ideas must give way to governing and bringing people together to secure Florida’s future. With the campaign now over, that’s where all of my focus will be.
And, to this end, I invite Mayor Gillum to join me in the days ahead in a conversation about the future of our great state. We have both traveled the state and met Floridians from all walks of life. Sharing these experiences will, I believe, help us unite our state and build toward unity on behalf of the people of Florida.”

“With the midterm election in the books, voters are shifting their attention to the presidential election in 2020 and are growing more convinced that there’s a second term in sight for the 45th president,” says a new Rasmussen Reports analysis, which conducted a new survey Nov. 7 — just 24 hours after the Election Day.
It found that 47 percent of all U.S. voters believe that it is “likely Trump will be re-elected in 2020,” a finding which is up by 8 percentage points since August. There’s are negative aspects with lesser impact: 29 percent think the president will be defeated by the Democratic nominee in 2020, while 16 percent say Mr. Trump will be impeached and convicted before finishing a full term in the White House.
A separate Rasmussen survey also has some findings which lean in favor of the president and his policies.
“President Trump was criticized at a summit with European leaders this week for putting America’s interests ahead of global needs. Voters still share the president’s ‘America First’ attitude,” the poll analysis said. “When they think about problems in the world, 50 percent of likely U.S. voters still are more interested in finding a solution that most benefits the United States as opposed to one that is better for the whole world.”
