Quote:

President Trump on Monday blasted the FBI for raiding the office of his personal attorney Michael Cohen, calling it a “disgrace” and a “pure and simple witch hunt.”

“It’s a real disgrace,” Trump told reporters at the White House as Vice President Pence, national security adviser John Bolton and other officials looked on. “It’s an attack on our country in a true sense. It’s an attack on what we all stand for.”


You are President of the free world. Fire someone.

Do it!

Black unemployment is down.


Continuation of a steady downward trend in black unemployment that started, at the latest, in 2011.

A seven year trend that Trump is coasting on. Not his doing.


Fewer jobs created in 2017 than in 2016, 2015, 2014 or 2013:

Trump keeps losing in court. I will refrain from looking at the Stormy weather and confine myself to executive agenda cases.

Quote:
President Donald Trump's effort to crack down on sanctuary cities suffered another legal setback Thursday as a federal appeals court in Chicago upheld a nationwide injunction against making federal grant funding contingent on cooperation with immigration enforcement.

A three-judge panel—all of whom are Republican appointees—ruled that there were strong indications that the administration exceeded its legal authority in trying to implement the new conditions without approval from Congress.


The Midwest is rife with Bush appointees, and Chicago is no exception. But it appears bashing Midwestern judges and the Bush family has not helped Trump carry forward his agenda. Funny, that.

Quote:

Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, whose confirmation President Donald Trump has long touted as one of his crowning achievements, cast the deciding vote against the administration Tuesday on an issue long at the center of the president's agenda: deporting immigrants who commit crimes in the U.S.

The ruling was the first in which Gorsuch sided with the court's liberal justices in a 5-4 decision, providing the swing vote for a result that could make it more difficult to deport immigrants who have committed violent crimes.


This ... this I would not have predicted. Although, Gorsuch is a Scalia clone, and his reasoning does follow Scalia’s circumscribed approach to statutory interpretation.

Quote:
In a decision that ruffled feathers at the White House, Gorsuch agreed with the court's four Democratic-appointed justices that a clause in federal law allowing the deportation of foreigners found guilty of "a crime of violence" is unconstitutional because it is overly vague.

"What does that mean?" Gorsuch asked in a concurring opinion. "Just take the crime at issue in this case, California burglary, which applies to everyone from armed home intruders to door-to-door salesmen peddling shady products. How, on that vast spectrum, is anyone supposed to locate the ordinary case and say whether it includes a substantial risk of physical force? The truth is, no one knows."

"The law’s silence leaves judges to their intuitions and the people to their fate. In my judgment, the Constitution demands more," Gorsuch added.


This one stings. Congress will have to rewrite the law. I wonder what chance there is that Senate Democrats will agree to do so without resolution on Deferred Action for Child Arrivals?
