Why the Left keeps Losing to Donald Trump Explained in Six tweets

Because of the Kavanaugh stuff I've spent much more time on twitter than I normally do. On Saturday I saw a series of tweets that perfectly illustrates why Donald Trump keeps beating the left The first tweet came from the account Neoavatara LOL... this corroborates almost nothing. Do people even understand what corroboration means? https://t.co/VzfcP2t1ZP … Continue reading Why the Left keeps Losing to Donald Trump Explained in Six tweets

Judge Kavanaugh and the Fourth Amendment

The strongest criticism of Judge Kavanaugh centers around his ruling in the case Klayman v. Obama, which dealt with NSA warrantless bulk data collection under the Obama administration.  Here is the text of that decision.  On the surface, the opening statement is strong evidence of his possible weakness regarding one of our most important protections … Continue reading Judge Kavanaugh and the Fourth Amendment

What the Left Actually Means by “Stare Decisis”

Every time there is a Supreme Court vacancy under a Republican president, the Left panics, at least since 1973, when Roe v. Wade was erroneously decided, inventing a supposed right to abortion that is nowhere in the Constitution. With the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the pattern continues. We all know that this panic stems from … Continue reading What the Left Actually Means by “Stare Decisis”

The GOP Should Use The Harry Reid Precedent on Democrat’s Kavenaugh Demands

Senator Pat Geary I want your answer and the money by noon tomorrow. And one more thing. Don't you contact me again, ever. From now on, you deal with Turnbull. Michael Corleone Senator? You can have my answer now, if you like. My final offer is this: nothing. Not even the fee for the gaming … Continue reading The GOP Should Use The Harry Reid Precedent on Democrat’s Kavenaugh Demands

Senator Collins and the Imaginary Roe Decision

"I would not support a nominee who demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade because that would mean to me that their judicial philosophy did not include a respect for established decisions, established law....Roe v. Wade is a constitutional right that is well established." Thus spake Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), according to a CNN report. But … Continue reading Senator Collins and the Imaginary Roe Decision

The Supreme Court Abandoned the Constitution a Long Time Ago

The Supreme Court’s tortured justification for their ruling in Masterpiece Cakeshop vs. Colorado Civil Rights Commission is further proof that the Supreme Court completely abandoned the Constitution a great many decades ago.  In this earlier article I explained in detail how the Supreme Court should have ruled and why.  With this current article I was … Continue reading The Supreme Court Abandoned the Constitution a Long Time Ago

Student Protests and the Constitution

As the media applauded the student protests against guns, most reporters failed to understand the nature of constitutional law and the First Amendment. Simply put, students who are not 18 years old don’t, for the most part, have many rights under the Constitution during the school day. Schools can ban websites and social media. Cellphone … Continue reading Student Protests and the Constitution

U.S. v. Microsoft

The ongoing conflict between an individual’s privacy and the public interest heads to the U.S. Supreme Court when the justices hear oral arguments in a lawsuit in which Microsoft refuses to turn over data in a drug case. The U.S. Constitution does not include the actual word privacy, but the Fourth Amendment, which prevents illegal … Continue reading U.S. v. Microsoft

It’s Not About the Cake

In Obergefell v. Hodges, the Supreme Court, relying on little more than the majority’s “reasoned judgement” that “liberty” as mentioned in the Fourteenth Amendment somehow encompasses the dignity of same-sex couples, created a right to same-sex marriage. As the case was being deliberated, traditional marriage supporters, including me, were concerned that creating such a right … Continue reading It’s Not About the Cake

A Trojan Horse at the Supreme Court

In Gill v. Whitford, democrats are challenging Wisconsin’s congressional district map, claiming that the Republican majority redrew the lines in an unconstitutional way back in 2010. The Constitution permits states to determine legislative districts, thus it is a legislative function. However, since Democrats haven’t won what they consider enough seats in Congress (i.e., all of … Continue reading A Trojan Horse at the Supreme Court

How Nice of Democrats to Kill Two Birds with one Stone for Trump

As of this writing the first real threat to the winning streak of Donald Trump has come up, namely the stalling of the house Obamacare repeal/replace bill. As I've not read the bill I'll leave it to others at my site to debate its merits but the actual problem is spitting the difference between what … Continue reading How Nice of Democrats to Kill Two Birds with one Stone for Trump

The Supreme Court Agenda

Two words: Supreme Court. That’s why many people voted for Donald Trump. Trump should have the opportunity to replace at least three justices on the court over the next four years, including the Scalia vacancy, possibly the irritating Darth Vader Ginsburg and the wobbly Anthony Kennedy. It’s conceivable that liberal Stephen Breyer might call it … Continue reading The Supreme Court Agenda

Eight is enough… justices

Voices on the left were furious when John McCain suggested that Republicans in the Senate would block any nominees by Hillary Clinton if she becomes President. He walked back that particular talking point very quickly because he's John McCain. According to The New American: To no one’s surprise, Senator John McCain (R-Ariz) quickly backtracked on … Continue reading Eight is enough… justices

Worried about the Court? Then worry about the Senate

I suspect that those of us who find Trump & Hillary equally unacceptable are going to be voted off the conservative island before this election's over. I'm being harangued by perfectly nice people saying "butbutbut HILLARY!!", along with what's supposed to be the clincher: "Supreme Court!" An awful prospect, to be sure. The thing is, … Continue reading Worried about the Court? Then worry about the Senate

The Most Frightening Words I’ve Read Today

Scrooge:Speak comfort to me , Jacob Marley's Ghost:I have none to give Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol With all that is going on in the race for the GOP nomination conservatives need something to reassure them that things will be ok. "REPORT: Obama to announce Supreme Court nominee at 11 a.m. If Mitch McConnell keeps … Continue reading The Most Frightening Words I’ve Read Today
