Big Law Buckling To Big Left—So Much For Legal Ethics



If Trump were a murderer or a terrorist, Above The Law wouldn’t attack the lawyer who defended him

The Supreme Court’s decision in United States v. Texas, the Obamnesty case argued April 18, is not expected until June at the earliest. But the backstory demonstrates just how far to the Left the top corporate law firms (“Big Law”) have moved—as (perhaps less surprisingly) does the controversy over the Donald Trump campaign’s legal representation in Washington D.C.

As with most high-profile cases, dozens of amicus briefs were filed both for and against the Obama’s Executive Amnesty. An amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief is filed by a third party interested in the outcome of a case. For example, if two small technology companies has an intellectual property dispute before the Supreme Court that could affect the entire industry, larger technology companies or their trade groups may file amicus briefs. In these types of specialized cases, the briefs can have a major impact.

usvstexasIn United States v. Texas, legal scholars, trade associations, politicians, and advocacy organizations filed amicus briefs. For example, Democratic Congressmen and Senators, the AFL-CIO, and the American Immigration Council (a Soros-funded pro-immigration group)filed amicus briefs in defense of Executive Amnesty, while Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and the Immigration Reform Law Institute filed briefs against. All in all, there were 19 briefs in favor of Amnesty and 18 against.

Yet it’s not clear that these matter that much to the outcome. Most legal commentators think that in such c Read more >>

Why Russia Resents Us

Friday, a Russian SU-27 did a barrel roll over a U.S. RC-135 over the Baltic, the second time in two weeks.

Also in April, the U.S. destroyer Donald Cook, off Russia's Baltic enclave of Kaliningrad, was twice buzzed by Russian planes.

Derb’s April Diary: TIME’s Altman A Dissident Right Mole? Chinese Underwear; WASP Privilege; Etc.!!



richardspencer

Spencer in Time. I was sitting in a doctor's office late in April browsing the magazines. They had recent issues of Time. Flipping through the April 25th issue, who should I see looking out at me from page 41 but Richard Spencer, whose Beemer once graced my driveway for several days. (Richard was staying in Brooklyn and needed a place to leave the car.)

Richard's picture was illustrating an article by Alex Altman (email him), headline : The Billionaire and the Bigots . The point of the article, Time being a Main Stream Media outlet, was of course to show that Donald Trump is obviously a thought criminal because he has the support of the Dissident Right—the name I prefer for what Altman calls the Alt Right—people like Richard Spencer (and us!)

Our own Alexander Hart posted a good critique of the Time article here at VDARE.com on April 28th. I only want to add one point my colleague left out.

It's a passage in the Time article that struck me with such force, I scribbled it down while waiting for the doctor. Most of it is a quote from a person Altman encountered in his researches into the Dissident Right fever swamp. Here is the passage as I wrote it down.
“Diversity brings differences, and sometimes those differences are so irreconcilable, they cause conflict,” said Nathan Damigo, a 29-year-old student from Oakdale, Calif., who blogs about incidents of alleged anti-white bias. To Damigo, a former Marine who fought on the sectarian battle fields of Iraq, the rise of a candidate like Trump was inevitable. “This is what happens in all multiracial, multi-religious, multiethnic societies,” he said. “Identity politics trumps everything else.” [Links added]

This caught my attention just because it's so darn reasonable. I imagine a lot of Time readers—people by no means sympathetic to the Dissident Right—must have scratched their heads reading that, muttering: "Well, yeah." It's actually hard to argue with it, unless you've spent the last fifty years in a sensory-deprivation tank.

This Time writer, who's supposed to be trying to show his readers how crazy we Dissident Rightists are, is calling down fire on his own position by including that passage. Why did he include it?

There are two possibilities.

(1) Altman is so far away in multiculti cloud-cuckoo land, Nathan Damigo's mild and obvious remarks do sound crazy to him.


(2) Altman is a Dissident Right mole, perhaps on Richard Spencer's payroll,

Obama vs. Trump (And Pat Buchanan) On The Nation-State—“The True Foundation For Happiness And Harmony.”

[Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, now available free on VDARE.com]

In case you're still not clear about why so many Americans are voting for Donald Trump, let's follow our president on his recent trip to Britain and Germany.

Last Saturday, April 23,  Obama spoke to a "town hall meeting" at the Royal Horticultural Halls in Westminster, seven hundred yards from Westminster Abbey, where English monarchs back to Edward the Confessor 950 years ago are buried, along with many other cultural notables.

The audience consisted of 400 young people apparently chosen by the American Embassy. To look at them, you would never know you were in England—let alone seven minutes’ walk away from the very hearth-place of Englishness.

I did look at them. In fact I trawled through news photographs of the event to find a picture showing the largest number of audience members, and scrutinized them.

There were 116 audience members in my picture. Tallying up those of white European appearance, and giving benefit of the doubt to ambiguous cases, I got 51, which is to say 44 percent. Thirty faces in the picture — that's 26 percent — were Negroes. Seven of the women wore Muslim headscarves. Royal Horticultural? More like the Royal Multicultural. I weep for England.

These Anti-Trump TURBAS Are America’s Future—Unless Immigration Is Stopped NOW



You have to put the Statue of Liberty on the cover of an immigration book--it's the law.Paul Kersey called me early this morning to urge me to me to write the concluding fictional chapter I had originally projected for my 1995 immigration book Alien Nation: Common Sense About America’s Immigration Disaster: about the flight of the last white family in Los Angeles, led by a heroine I would call Virginia Dare, because it seemed…somehow symmetrical. (For some reason, this idea really annoyed the Southern Poverty Law Center—$PLC to VDARE.com).

Kersey’s point: the mobbing of the Trump rally in Costa Mesa on April 28 (as well as the San Fernando freeway shutdowns ignored by the national Main Stream Media but reported by Steve Sailer) showed that Mexifornia, with its characteristic Latin American intolerance and tradition of public intimidation by turba is now here. (Much to horror of his swamped California relatives).

Since Kersey called me, of course, “protesters”—who of course should properly be called “disrupters”—have blocked Trump’s car from entering the California Republican Convention in Burlingame, so that he had to enter by crossing a wall, and then broke through barricade outside the conference hotel.

Trump quipped: “It felt like I was crossing the border.” But of course he was—between America and its Third World future.

Unless immigration is cut off.
