The story wasn't about the right to appeal. only that the reasons for doing so in this case are suspect. Shining a defining light on the situation will clarify the situation. The answer isn't we should "stop allowing even evil entities due process" but that their motives should be made transparent.
That is by no means a 'surprise' because that is the primary tactic of the left. Any close election in reality was not close, as the dead, multiple voters and Democrat trips through the ghetto to swap food, cigarettes and crack for votes has skewed the process. Motor Voter? Instant voter!
This once again highlights the stealth 'October Surprise' the Democrats have ben counting on. The spying scandals weren't just on civilians. The Republicans were the actual targets and the information was passed from the government spy agencies to the liberal smear operators. It is more than just wimpy Republican leadership at work here, it is compromised Republican upper management working toward a minor victory where deadlock remains the status quo, so the liberal political operatives don't go full disclosure to ruin their careers, but allow them to remain in office, but compromised waiting for the next shoe to drop. We need to win first, then purge those that are compromised and prosecute those behind this scandal. But it remains on mute, at least until after the election.

The perpetually aggrieved can not even comprehend the feeling of being grateful. Bitter souls are easily exploited. Useful idiots.

Want to see where the mess we call education lost it's way? Read Ayers's "Prairie Fire", it is the blueprint for how we got to this point. The Charles Manson of public education.

I think there is a fundamental flaw in the knowledge of black slave trade. Americans seem to believe that the white man went to Africa and rounded up tribal blacks and forced them onto boats and turned them into slaves, capturing them like wild animals. The truth is that they were slaves BEFORE they were sold to the American white slave traders and those enslaving them were dark skin pigmentation! Many of the slaves, if not most, that were sold and shipped to America would have been killed had they not been sold in the slave trade market. As horrible as slavery was, it may have been the best thing to happen to them. There descendants that survive today have a far better life than if they had been born in Africa, even if they had been free and not involved in the slave trade. Something to think about. Many people suffered terribly to get to America, and even suffered and died after getting here, such as the Chinese and the Irish. To hold onto the hate and anger for something that happened to your descendants and not seen first hand for generations is a type of self enforced slavery. These people can never be grateful, and lose the benefits that gratefulness provides for not only themselves but their families as well.
I think many Republicans have been compromised by the spying by all those national agencies. I think they were targeted by the lefties who were illegally given the dirt on the Republicans, and they have caved on immigration because of this blackmail. We need to find out who has been compromised, who is blackmailing them and then put some people in jail. Imagine the computer crashes that would happen as these maggots try to cover their tracks.
Our military morale is a train wreck. An audit may be helpful, or may be destructive. The bureaucrats cultivated at the upper levels of the Pentagon have become worse and more politically polarized. If our military readiness goals are "In this country our military should be small, lean, but capable. Right now it is far too large, bloated, and less nimble than it should be" the goals are unrealistic in the current political climate. They sound good, but would leave our military short manned and unable to respond to changing situations. Yes, there is too much waste. But the value of our military is impossible to prove to those who do not wish to listen. The political means of leaning out the military is always flawed and impossibly processed (and intentionally done so). The danger of cutting the wrong things in the wrong way is standard operating procedures for politicians. Now is NOT the time for this discussion.
Legal Immigration has been a bureaucratic nightmare and needs real reform and money invested so it can handle the workload. But the real problem is the elitist leftists exploiting the problem. Their desire is to fundamentally transform America into a socialist utopia like the Soviet Union, after all, that worked SO WELL (sarcasm font). Immigration is but one of the tools these people are exploiting to overwhelm our capitalistic free market system that has brought us to super power status. Our welfare system, the ‘phobias’, and the ‘isms’ are all tools in their plan. The school systems and the unions are also tools towards this goal. They will love America only if it can be changed into a socialist utopia, as they hate America as it has always been. They believe whatever comes after the fall will be better than anything that has happened before. But socialism and Marxism have never worked anywhere before and have always failed with horrible consequences. We have to fight all enemies, both foreign and domestic. But to fight them we first need to understand them and see what their goals and methods are and they must be exposed. Immigration can be fixed, as well as all of our other problems. But the leftists have no intention of permitting us to fix them, as total collapse of our current system is their ultimate goal. We live in desperate times.
We are not at war with Islam, Islam is at war with us. The Muslims are here and prospering in America, whether through actual work or swamping the welfare system. When America admits that Islam is not a religion of peace, how can we do so without stating why? The Koran tells them to lie to infidels to gain any advantage, that non believers must eventually convert, be consistently persecuted, and can be killed for minor infractions and violations against Muslims. They are at war with us and we need a strategy to overcome their jihad, whether it be stealth which will eventually become violent whenever they gain an upper hand, or open Jihad and actively violent. It is a cancer for Western society that must be dealt with and will only become more difficult as time passes.
