Stormy is not much of a storm

leave a comment »

There are storms, and there is Stormy Daniels.

This is the latest from Daniels:

A federal judge on Thursday denied a motion from Stormy Daniels seeking to depose President Donald Trump and his longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen in the case over the adult film actress’s nondisclosure agreement.

Michael Avenatti, Daniels’ attorney, filed the action in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles on Tuesday asking permission to question Trump for two hours.  Avenatti also sought to depose Cohen.  According to the filing, Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford but who goes by her stage name, wants Trump to answer questions about their alleged affair and wants Cohen to discuss the reported hush agreement he struck with her.

After the motion was struck down by a judge as premature, Avenatti vowed during a CNN interview on Thursday afternoon to re-up the legal maneuver, possibly by the end of the day.

“We can refile this motion,” he said.  “That’s exactly what we’re going to do.”

So where are we?

In the short run, they will appeal the judge’s decision.

In the long run, this storm will pass.

First, the Trump-Daniels incident occurred when he was a private citizen.  By all indications, it was totally voluntary.  No one forced anyone to do anything – or, as they say, two consenting adults.

Second, the Republican women who voted for Mr. Trump calculated all of this prior to voting.  After all, we got daily stories for weeks before election day about this woman or that woman.  No one voted for Mr. Trump thinking he was a perfect husband.  At the same time, the women who voted for him were looking for someone to fix the economy and protect their husbands’ jobs.

Third, there is the hypocrisy factor.  Did you see any marches calling on President Clinton or Senator Ted Kennedy to resign?

There is no storm here unless something brand-new appears.  My guess is that something would have appeared already, especially weeks before the campaign.

Contras growing in California

with one comment

Back in the 1980s, we heard about the “contras” of Nicaragua, or rebels fighting the leftist government.    For some of us Cubans, “contras” was also a reference to “contra revolucionarios” or what they used call us in Cuba – i.e., opposition to the state.

There is a “contra” or “counter resistance” movement in California over sanctuary cities.  The latest to join the contras is Orange County, near Los Angeles.  This is from Fox:

Officials in California’s Orange County voted Tuesday to join a lawsuit from the Trump administration fighting the state’s “sanctuary city” laws, hours after the county sheriff’s department anounced its own methods of pushing back against the legislation aimed at protecting illegal immigrants.

Meanwhile, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra would not rule out taking action of his own against officials who fight the laws, including the sheriff.

“State law is state law. It’s my job to enforce state law and I will do so. We want to make sure that every jurisdiction, including Orange County, understands what state law requires of the people and the subdivisions of the state of California,” Becerra said at a news conference.

 

When asked if that meant an arrest or lawsuit against the sheriff, Becerra responded, “I think I just answered that.”

Let me add this:

First, this is so refreshing, especially for so many of us who were starting to think that California was lost to the left.

Second, wouldn’t it be nice if A.G. Sessions warned A.G. Becerra not to arrest someone for respecting federal law?  A.G. Sessions should warn A.G. Becerra that he will arrest him for promoting the violation of federal law.

Beyond left and right, California is imploding, from homelessness to cracking infrastructure to a bullet train that will never get to its destination to a public pension crisis around the corner.  At some point, one has to think California’s Democrats will realize that they are not being well served by the people they voted for.

Most of all, California is waking up, and that’s wonderful.
