“Right Jab And Left Jab” was created because we have two commenters that post on a daily basis either in our “IS IT TRUE” or “Readers Forum” columns concerning National or International issues.
Joe Biden and Ronald Reagan’s comments are mostly about issues of national interest.  The majority of our “IS IT TRUE” columns are about local or state issues, so we have decided to give Mr. Biden and Mr. Reagan exclusive access to our newly created “LEFT JAB and RIGHT JAB”  column. They now have this post to exclusively discuss national or world issues that they feel passionate about.
We shall be posting the “LEFT JAB” AND “RIGHT JAB” several times a week.  Oh, “Left Jab” is a liberal view and the “Right Jab is representative of the more conservative views. Also, any reader who would like to react to the written comments of the two gentlemen is free to do so.

  1. “It’s another step towards tyranny and abdication of the rule of law when Members of Congress urge Supreme Court decisions to be ignored”

    JethroBodine👨‍🌾 will be encouraging 💩Twittler💩 to IGNORE the Supreme Court AND the American Constitution. Yet we ALL know that if President Obama had used this method to do anything the right-wing Twittlers would have FREAKED out, which shows how racist and hypocritical they are 🛇🛇🛇

    GOP Congressman Urges Trump To Reject Supreme Court Ruling On Citizenship Question

    Freshman Republican Congressman Chip Roy (R-TX) urged Trump on Tuesday to ignore the Supreme Court’s decision on a controversial census citizenship question and to unilaterally order the question be included, advising him to print the survey with the question regardless of the court’s ruling

    “It’s the lawyers advising him. Trump should ignore them. Completely. Print the Census with the questions, and issue a statement explaining why” Roy tweeted referring to the Supreme Court Justices

    His suggestion that the leader of the Executive Branch defy a ruling by the Judicial Branch’s top court would require Trump to take action that’s PROHIBITED by the Constitution. Current law and the Constitution hinder a president’s ability to delay the questionnaire

    The Supreme Court struck a blow last week to the Commerce Department’s attempt to add the question, which critics argue would discourage large swaths of minorities and undocumented people from answering and lead to inaccurate results about population sizes. Among other things, the decennial census is used by states to redraw congressional districts based on populations that last a decade, potentially having nationwide political impacts, such as which party controls the House

    Chief Justice John Roberts wrote that the Commerce Department lacked justification when claiming the question would help enforce the Voting Rights. He described it as “contrived” reasoning and further said that the evidence indicated the Commerce Department made the decision to add the question before going to the Justice Department seeking legal justification

    “Accepting contrived reasons would defeat the purpose of the enterprise. If judicial review is to be more than an empty ritual, it must demand something better than the explanation offered for the action taken in this case. We do not hold that the agency decision here was substantively invalid. But agencies must pursue their goals reasonably. Reasoned decision-making under the Administrative Procedure Act calls for an explanation for agency action. What was provided here was more of a distraction”

    On Tuesday night Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the administration would not be asking the citizenship question and had begun printing the survey without it, saying “I respect the Supreme Court but strongly disagree with its ruling regarding my decision to reinstate a citizenship question on the 2020 Census. The Census bureau has started the process of printing the decennial questionnaires without the question”

    It’s still an open question as to whether or not the Trump administration will actually follow the Supreme Court’s ruling, since it has no real means of enforcing its rulings other than a long-standing norm which, as we know from Trump’s continuous ethical violations, this administration is not particularly fond of. This is a point made by Alexander Hamilton in the Federalist papers:

    “The judiciary has no influence over either the sword or the purse, no direction either of the strength or of the wealth of the society, and can take no active resolution whatever. It must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm even for the efficacy of its judgments”


    • Democrat karma. for Collusion Delusion peddler Schiff:

      California Drag Queen Primarying Democrat Adam Schiff

      “Maebe A. Girl,” a Silver Lake Neighborhood councilor, is running for Congress.

      A California drag queen is challenging Democratic Representative Adam Schiff for his party’s nomination, hoping to take his seat in the House of Representatives.

      “Maebe A. Girl,” who identifies as a gender-fluid trans person, would presumably be the first drag queen to be seated in the U.S Congress, assuming none of her new Democratic colleagues have any clandestine proclivities they’ve declined to disclosed.

      She isn’t running out of opposition to Adam Schiff’s quality of representation(the longtime San Fernando congressman is known as a de facto ringleader of the Russia conspiracy/collusion truther movement), but ‘Girl’ believes California’s 28th congressional district would be better served with a representative affiliated with the LGBTQIA+ community….

      In any case, the Democrat in drag could very plausibly represent a real threat to the milquetoast incumbent. He’ll owe his constituents a real explanation for his refusal to bow down, surrendering his seat to the first drag queen in Congress.


  2. 😱😱😱 BREAKING NEWS 😱😱😱 The walls are closing in on Jethro👨‍🌾Bodine hero Twittler

    House Expands Investigation Into Ivanka Trump Email Crimes

    The House Oversight Committee is expanding its investigation into the Trump administration’s email crimes and failure to comply with federal record-keeping laws. According to a release from the House Oversight Committee:

    After hearing no response for months, Cummings wrote again to the White House on March 21, 2019, conveying more troubling information about apparent violations of the Presidential Records Act by Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, Steve Bannon, and K.T. McFarland.

    In addition, the report issued by Special Counsel Robert Mueller stated that Mr. Bannon admitted that “he regularly used his personal Blackberry and personal email for work-related communications (including those with Erik Prince), and he took no steps to preserve these work communications.”

    The purpose of this investigation is to determine why White House officials used non-official email accounts, texting services, and encrypted applications for official business; why they failed to forward records sent or received on non-official accounts to their official accounts within 20 days as required by federal law; whether there were specific topics that White House officials sought to conceal; and whether legislative changes should be made to prevent similar violations in the future.

    It is known that Ivanka Trump spent all of 2017 sending hundreds of illegal emails from the White House. Trump immediately blamed Hilary Clinton for his daughter’s email scandal, and the Trump administration has been stonewalling the investigation since before Democrats took back the House.

    House Oversight are expanding their investigation in response to the Trump administration complying with no requests over the previous six months.

    Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner broke the law. With the state of New York breathing down their necks, the last thing the Trumps needed was another investigation into their illegal behavior


    • Comrade Reagan may have to face reality if he/she/both survive the Collusion Delusion syndrome:

      Liz Peek: Democrats confront the unthinkable — Trump’s reelection

      …Despite fielding an unprecedented number of would-be candidates, Democrats have so far failed to find a standard-bearer likely to unify their party. As the recent debates showed, the party has moved left, and further left still, leaving the majority of Americans behind as they try to placate Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and other noisy progressives….

      Maybe it’s the perspective gained from taking a much-needed week away from the political scrum, but to this observer the Democrats look increasingly small, while President Trump looks big. While the president is attempting to reset our trade relations with China, trying to reach some understanding with nuclear-armed North Korea, searching for a means to rein in Iran and to solve our dysfunctional immigration policies, Democrats needle and prod and pick, carping at the White House and at each other.

      If Trump is reelected, Democrats will have only themselves to blame.


      • Trump Derangement Syndrome Will Guarantee The President’s Re-Election

        ….Dr. Charles Krauthammer, the great political commentator and psychiatrist, first coined the term “Bush Derangement Syndrome” in 2003 as, “the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency – nay – the very existence of George W. Bush.” Krauthammer later updated his diagnosis to include “Trump Derangement Syndrome.” According to Krauthammer, a “general hysteria marked by an inability to distinguish between legitimate policy differences and signs of psychic pathology” with regards to Donald Trump, indicated signs of Trump Derangement Syndrome….

        The first round of Democratic debates showcased the effects of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Anyone who had the masochistic experience of sitting through the two-night identity politics pageant should readily have ascertained such effects. Take the border crisis. Through the campaign and the first two-and-a-half years of Trump’s presidency, he talked about the border crisis. Democrats denied its’ existence. Never offering a counter policy approach, Democrats simply declared that there was no crisis. When asked about the border crisis at the debates each candidate made a point of using words like ‘inhumane,’ ‘compassion,’ and the ever-present yet undefinable ‘comprehensive immigration reform,’ yet not one single counter policy approach was presented. This is Trump Derangement Syndrome plain and simple….

        Running a presidential campaign without any substantive policy proposals, only lambasting the very policies Americans are supporting and feeling the benefits of is a political insanity that we haven’t seen since Walter Mondale’s 1984 promise to raise your taxes. Trying to convince Americans that policies they are benefitting from are bad simply because they come from Donald Trump requires a cognitive dissonance on a national level that is simply unattainable.

        Trump Derangement Syndrome has consumed the Democrats to the point that they can no longer respond rationally to anything they disagree with coming from this White House, which is everything. Trump Derangement Syndrome will re-elect the President.


  3. Trump Goes Off On Deranged Rant Blaming The Media For His Migrant Concentration Camps

    💩Twittler💩 blames the media for reporting on his treatment of migrants in detention centers, blathering on Twitter:

    “The Fake News Media, in particular the Failing @nytimes, is writing phony and exaggerated accounts of the Border Detention Centers. First of all, people should not be entering our Country illegally, only for us to then have to care for them. We should be allowed to focus on United States Citizens first. Border Patrol, and others in Law Enforcement, have been doing a great job. We said there was a Crisis – the Fake News & the Dems said it was “manufactured.” Now all agree we were right, but they always knew that. They are crowded (which we brought up, not them) because the Dems won’t change the Loopholes and Asylum. Big Media Con Job”

    Trump was upset by a report in The New York Times on the disease and squalor inside the Clint, Texas detention facility, “Outbreaks of scabies, shingles and chickenpox were spreading among the hundreds of children who were being held in cramped cells, agents said. The stench of the children’s dirty clothing was so strong it spread to the agents’ own clothing — people in town would scrunch their noses when they left work. The children cried constantly. One girl seemed likely enough to try to kill herself that the agents made her sleep on a cot in front of them, so they could watch her as they were processing new arrivals”

    According to The Times, Border Patrol Agents have been warning the federal government that the facility was overcrowded, but the Trump administration has done nothing

    Trump is trying to justify the abuse of children. His deranged rant at the media was all brought about because his cruelty to children is being exposed for the entire world to see


    • Antifa and drag queens, the new face of the far left Democrat party:

      Over a dozen Antifa protesters dressed in drag threatened and intimidated a conservative journalist Saturday in Washington, DC, as they counter-protested a “Demand Free Speech” rally.

      Dressed in full drag, Antifa protesters surrounded independent journalist Alicia Powe as she began conducting interviews with members of the leftist organization.

      The group of white males then violently clacked their rainbow emblazed fans in her face and accused her of being a white supremacist….

      Fortunately, a massive group of District of Columbia police officers was assigned to the rally, successfully preventing violence from escalating.

      The drag queen Antifa protesters are members of the organization Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, who according to their website “believe all people have a right to express their unique joy and beauty.”


      • Illegals, the new leaders of the California Democratic party?

        California Dems Move To Give Illegal Aliens Party ‘Leadership’ Positions

        CNS News reports that Democratic lawmakers in California have introduced a bill to allow illegal aliens and non-citizens eligible for leadership positions within state political parties.

        Melanie Arter reports that “current state law limits noncitizen participation in party politics, but the bill, SB 288, would change that, letting noncitizens, including illegal immigrants like Dreamers, serve as state convention delegates and county committee leaders within the Democratic Party, which will allow them to be involved with party platform and other issues.”


  4. Whoa! Clinton Library REFUSES to Hand Over Information on Bill Clinton’s Ties to Jeffrey Epstein


    REMINDER: Bill Clinton Took ‘At Least’ 26 Flights on Epstein’s Lolita Express and Ditched Secret Service


  5. No Filthy Baby Jails, No Filthy Baby Jails, YOU’RE The Filthy Baby Jails!

    The New York Times and El Paso Times co-published a major report Saturday, detailing awful conditions at a Border Patrol processing facility in Clint, Texas. The story, based on interviews with current and former Border Patrol agents and officials, as well as others who have seen the Clint facility firsthand, confirmed earlier reports that immigrant children were left in overcrowded cells and that babies were left in the care of somewhat older children, if by older you mean “eight.” It also described conditions similar to those found by Homeland Security’s inspector general at other facilities in the Rio Grande Valley

    So naturally enough, the Trump administration went on TV to insist it’s all a lot of hooey, and the liar in chief said the Times story was a hoax. There are no real problems in the border facilities, at least none that can’t be solved by WALL, and all that’s needed is a bit of reality management

    Today, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, said she was “appalled” by the conditions at the border, as if anyone in the US government cares what the UN thinks. The UN wants to take away our sovereignty and force us to ride bicycles, after all

    The Times report largely builds on and amplifies what a team of attorneys found when they spoke to over 50 children held at the Clint facility in June. Based on “dozens of interviews” by the two newspapers of “current and former Border Patrol agents and supervisors; lawyers, lawmakers and aides who visited the facility,” as well as sworn statements and other inspection reports, the investigation called conditions at Clint “the stuff of nightmares”

    Outbreaks of scabies, shingles and chickenpox were spreading among the hundreds of children who were being held in cramped cells, agents said. The stench of the children’s dirty clothing was so strong it spread to the agents’ own clothing — people in town would scrunch their noses when they left work. The children cried constantly. One girl seemed likely enough to try to kill herself that the agents made her sleep on a cot in front of them, so they could watch her as they were processing new arrivals

    “It gets to a point where you start to become a robot” said a veteran Border Patrol agent who has worked at the Clint station since it was built. He described following orders to take beds away from children to make more space in holding cells, part of a daily routine that he said had become “heartbreaking”

    There’s a lot more, including details of an internal Customs and Border Protection report that called attention to the overcrowding and health problems (bizarrely, after noting children had been held for weeks, some without brushing their teeth or showering, that inspector concluded the facility was “in compliance with standards”). The Border Patrol’s facilities are only supposed to hold migrants of all ages for no more than 72 hours before they’re moved to facilities run by other agencies, but many migrants have been stuck there for weeks

    Some Border Patrol agents were trying to get help for the kids, but their superiors ignored them. Not all were so worried about those in their care. Warren Binford, one of the lawyers who visited Clint weeks ago, recounted the experience of a teen mother who asked for medicine for her baby, who had a fever. When she was arrested, agents threw away all her possessions, including meds and diapers for the baby (a practice documented at other facilities in a May DHS Inspector General report). When she asked for more medication agents told the mother “Who told you to come to America with your baby, anyway?”

    One veteran agent confirmed to the Times that older children were routinely asked to look after infants and toddlers, because there weren’t any adults available to do it:

    “We have nine agents processing, two agents in charge of U.A.C. care and we have little ones that need their diapers changed, and we can’t do that,” the agent said. “We can’t carry them or change diapers. We do ask the older juveniles, the 16-year-olds or 17-year-olds, to help us out with that.”
    There’s much more; as we say, read the whole piece to see what a goddamned abomination is being perpetrated in our names

    Thank goodness none of that actually happened, because Donald Trump said it didn’t. On Twitter yesterday, Trump insisted it was fake, and that’s all there is to it

    That’s far more reliable than some made-up newspaper story, because that’s the “president” of the USA. Trump added, as usual, that the overcrowding — which is real, but it’s very CLEAN overcrowding — is all the fault of Democrats who refuse to end “loopholes,” like the very existence of asylum and due process. So everything’s fine, but there’s a crisis, and it’s all a “Big Media Con Job!” Also, WALL!

    Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan also took to the TV this weekend to insist there may be some overcrowding, but nothing worse, and really, the border facilities are actually very, very good. McAleenan told ABC News’s “This Week” the claims of shitty conditions are huge exaggerations, as long as you very carefully parse your terms:

    “There’s adequate food and water,” he said. “The facility’s cleaned every day, because I know what our standards are and I know they’re been followed because we have tremendous levels of oversight. Five levels of oversight.

    “Inadequate food, inadequate water and unclean cells. None of those have been substantiated”

    There is food and water and we hose out the cells, so let’s not nitpick about whether the kids have clean clothes, blankets, a mattress, or nutritious food. Sure, in Clint, the food is a constant diet of oatmeal and ramen and frozen burritos, maybe cooked, maybe not, because there’s no kitchen. But it is food. Besides, as the same guy who said the entire story is a hoax said just days ago, the immigrants brought all this on themselves.

    Strangely, the United Nations’ top human rights official, Michelle Bachelet, said today she finds the situation at the border appalling, probably because she too works for the fake news media. In a statement, Bachelet pushed the radical globalist anti-American notion that children do not belong in jail.

    The High Commissioner stated that several UN human rights bodies have found that the detention of migrant children may constitute cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment that is prohibited by international law.*”

    “As a paediatrician, but also as a mother and a former head of State [Chile, where Pinochet once ruled, so let that sink in] I am deeply shocked that children are forced to sleep on the floor in overcrowded facilities, without access to adequate healthcare or food, and with poor sanitation conditions,” High Commissioner Bachelet said

    “Detaining a child even for short periods under good conditions can have a serious impact on their health and development – consider the damage being done every day by allowing this alarming situation to continue.” The High Commissioner noted that immigration detention is never in the best interests of a child

    Bachelet even cited the DHS Inspector General’s reports, proving that Deep State traitors in Homeland Security must be purged since they’re trying to make America look bad. She added that steps other than detention can and should be used to process asylum-seekers, called for protection of due process rights, and called on the US, Mexico, and migrants’ countries of origin to work together to address the root causes of migration, such as “insecurity, sexual and gender-based violence, discrimination, poverty, the adverse impacts of climate change and environmental degradation.” As if those were even real things!

    For heaven’s sake, Bachelet didn’t even once calling migrants “invaders,” “illegals,” or even “hordes,” so that tells you all you need to know about her crazy understanding of “human rights”

    We’ll predict the official response to Bachelet’s statement will be something along the lines of the last line of Mark Twain’s “The War Prayer”: It was believed afterward that the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights was a lunatic, because there was no sense in what she said


    • Komrade Reagan, let there be light. Media welcome to visit the detention centers:

      Trump Wants ‘Complaining Media’ to ‘Go in and See’ Migrant Centers

      Migrant centers that have come under criticism by the media will be opened to visits by journalists, U.S. President Donald Trump foreshadowed on Sunday.

      The president spoke after he was asked if he would visit the U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility in Clint, Texas, that the New York Times and El Paso Times have recently covered.

      His comments came after the two outlets on Saturday published an article alleging the Texas migrant shelter was filled with hundreds of children wearing filthy clothing and packed into disease-ridden cells – a story Trump called a “hoax”.

      Trump told reporters in Morristown, New Jersey: “What we’re going to do is I’m going to start showing some of these detention centers … to the press.”

      “I want the press to go in and see them,” Trump added, before declaring, “We’re going to send people in. We’re going to have some of the press go in.”

      The president also took the time to expand on his reasons for opening the facilities to a generally hostile media, outling they were full for a reason.

      “They’re crowded because people come up, but now thanks to Mexico it’s slowing down greatly,” he said. “But it is crowded, but we want to have the press go in and see,” Trump continued, decrying the Times as “fake news.”


  6. Did you guys hear Trump talk about how we had to protect our airports during the Revolutionary War?
    I’m talking about the airport comment. Doesn’t he know there weren’t airports then?
    Did you hear that?

    • He also likes the 10th and 12th Articles in the Constitution the best Walter.

      The man doesn’t read Walt.

      He just grabs pussy and cons dummies.

      And you can take that to shar pie’s bank….

    • I can tell your first 5 words are straight from your heart Joe.

      And yes, lefties not knowing General Washington could have flown across the Delaware and kicked ass instead of paddling would show anyone’s ignorance.

      “Tough weeks for lefties” – Mesker Joe

      And it was a tough week for General Washington 248 years ago Joe because the TSA would not let him carry his sabre on the plane.


      By the way Joe, do you happen to have a bank like shar pie and Putin/Mop Heads?

      The 2020 IRS will DEFINITELY want to know.
