[Ed.: Oh, this should be good on how a federal judge magically rules that Obama’s unilateral action (read: unconstitutional) to create DACA is completely kosher and then rules that the same branch that created it cannot dismantle it.]

Trump Doesn’t Have the Authority to Attack North Korea Without Congress | The Atlantic

“[The North Korean] regime has signaled its contempt for its neighbors, for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards of acceptable international behavior,” President Donald Trump said Tuesday morning. “All options are on the table.”

One option that should not be on the table is a “preventive” American military strike against North Korea without United Nations approval, public debate, and a congressional authorization.

[Ed.: As a resident of a city on the West Coast of North America, a pre-emptive strike to disable North Korea’s nuclear capabilities before he nukes LA, San Francisco or Seattle may be absolutely necessary to prevent this. It’s clear that Kim Jong-un is mentally ill and could (once they have reliable rocket technology) decide to prove that he has a functional nuclear arsenal by taking out a city on the United States west coast.

The Atlantic is a liberal, elitist organization that would probably change their tune if they lived on the Left Coast and could be nuked into oblivion by a mad man with a bad ‘do. They probably think I refer to the President of the United States but it’s just because they hate Trump so much. It’s sad that they abhor an overtly patriotic president who believes in the superiority of the USA. Oh do they miss our former Supreme Leader Obama. Makes me chuckle down deep inside.

The one thing you can’t say about Trump is that he doesn’t care about the United States – in fact, he may indeed get us into war with North Korea, but it’d be because he cares too much; even about states that didn’t vote for him.]

[Ed.: “Dear United Nations, Please accept Governor Inslee as our present for you to keep. We’re sorry that he’s not newer, prettier or smarter, but if you need someone to shield yourself from clamoring television news reporters, he’s better than a briefcase or Manila folder because he’s auto-positioning which is a very handy feature. Please do enjoy! Sincerely, Citizens of Washington State”]

Seahawks’ Michael Bennett pulls out of NFL players Israel trip | Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett won’t make a planned trip to Israel out of concerns the visit will be used for political purposes.

[Ed.: Well, the premise here is wrong Mr. Bennett. Palestinians are actually Jordanians and have only recently inhabited the Gaza Strip and the West Bank; they’ve not lived there for thousands of years. Palestine is not their birthright and their claims to anything more than being land-holders in Jerusalem are dubious at best.]

God is not a Liberal (and he’s not Conservative either)

This Op-Ed is in direct response to the Seattle P-I’s “news” story about Father Michael Ryan’s sermon of Sunday, Feb 5:

Fr. Michael Ryan of Seattle’s St. James Cathedral swerves unwittingly into the truth, but like a drunk driver on a car- and booze-fueled bender, he doesn’t realize it and keeps meandering his merry way home leaving (political) carnage in his wake.

Ryan argued Sunday that society has a right to “reasonable precautions” to assure public safety.

“Our nation has one of the most rigorous screening processes for immigrants and refugees in the world,” he said.  “But when reasonable precautions turn into paranoia that whips up suspicion toward an entire population or religious group, we believers need to speak up and speak out.”
