    People flying into New Jersey will be asked to fill out an electronic survey starting Monday as the Garden State continues to call for travelers arriving from 22 states that qualify as coronavirus hotspots to voluntarily self-quarantine for 14 days. Airlines will announce both the quarantine advisory and information about the survey before travelers depart and while they’re on their flight, state Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli said Friday as she announced the new initiative. The survey will ask people information about where they’re traveling from, their residence, and their destination. The information will then be sent to county health departments,...
  • Trump claims it's his call on when to 'reopen' the country. He's wrong. (Oh you idiots fell for it again)

    "I'm going to put it very simply: the president of the United States has the authority to do what the president has the authority to do, which is very powerful. The president of the United States calls the shots," Trump said Monday evening, pressed on his claim during a news briefing at the White House. He continued: "When somebodys the president of the U.S., the authority is total, and thats the way its gotta be." But experts and the Constitution say Trump is wrong. The authority to require businesses to close in a public health crisis is what...

  • Is a "constitutionalist" only a constitutionalist over 1 constitution? Or over all 51 constitutions?

    05/03/2020 4:10:03 PM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 27 replies
    In the past few weeks, I have heard two or perhaps three interviews with South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem and I think the most impressive thing I have heard her say(she has said many impressive things) repeatedly is not just that she swore an oath to defend and uphold the United States Constitution, but also her State constitution. I find this to be extremely impressive, since I find that far too often some people are willing to let themselves forget that America has more than one Constitution. As an example, here is a past article from something Noem said: ""I...

    Not long after President Donald Trump said Wednesday he disagreed with Gov. Brian Kemp's decision to start reopening Georgia's economy on Friday, Kemp took to Twitter to defend his decision. "Earlier today, I discussed Georgia's plan to reopen shuttered businesses for limited operations with [President Trump]," Kemp tweeted. "I appreciate his bold leadership and insight during these difficult times and the framework provided by the White House to safely move states forward. "Our next measured step is driven by data and guided by state public health officials. We will continue with this approach to protect the lives and livelihoods...

    Hello, old chap, you got stuck with the big decision, didn't you?" Donald wheeled suddenly and said:Why, its you, Andrew! I warnt noticing. SayIm swimming in glowing press, I am. Dont you wish you were? But of course youd drutherwork on reopening the economy wouldnt you? Even if people gonna criticize you if it ain't picture perfect afterwards. Donald contemplated the Governor a bit, and said: What do you call work? Why, aintthatwork? Donald resumed his hard work, and answered carelessly: Well, maybe it is, and maybe it aint. All I know, is, it suits Donald Trump. Oh come, now,...

    Reuters via Yahoo ^ | February 24th, 2020 | By Linda Carroll
    (Reuters) - In just four years, marijuana use grew by 75% among Americans aged 65 and older, according to a new study, and researchers expressed concern over a lack of information on the potential health implications. The increase was most pronounced in women, those with higher incomes and more education, according to a report published on Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine. The findings continue a trend seen over the last decade, said the study's lead author, Benjamin Han, an assistant professor of geriatric medicine and palliative care at the New York University School of Medicine. "Consider that not even 10...

    A federal judge handed the Trump administration a win Monday, dismissing a lawsuit from states with high taxes. The lawsuit asked U.S. District Judge J. Paul Oetken to block the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act's limit on how much people can deduct in state and local taxes (SALT). The provision effectively raised the tax burden on citizens of high-tax states.
  • A $2 trillion mistake? Heres what Washington must do to get infrastructure right

    The New York Post ^ | May 15, 2019 | Brian Riedl
    President Trump and Democratic leaders have discovered the one policy that unites Washington: spending money we dont have. Yet their bipartisan pledge to spend an added $2 trillion on infrastructure over the next decade faces serious obstacles if these leaders are to responsibly improve our infrastructure. First, Washington should spend only as much as it is willing to offset with other savings. Putting $2 trillion on the national credit card would boost deficits that are already on course to surpass $2 trillion a year within a decade, due mostly to entitlements. These deficits are projected to push annual interest costs...

    Trump got you down? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez giving you the willies? Try federalism now with 70 percent less authoritarianism. To the uninitiated, conservatives sometimes sound to put it plainly bonkers. Your lefty friends are going on and on about free health care and making Jeff Bezos pay off their student loans, and conservatives are talking about . . . the 17th Amendment. Conservatives do hate the 17th Amendment. Thats the one that instituted the direct election of senators, which basically turned the upper house into a puffed-up House of Representatives with a bit less accountability. Conservatives of a...
  • The Intellectual Dishonesty of the Campaign Against the Electoral College

    04/11/2019 2:03:07 PM PDT · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 20 replies
    A full-blown war is raging against the Electoral College. But as activist groups become more desperate to overturn our way of electing presidents before voters go the polls in November 2020, their arguments become more absurd and hyperbolic. CNN recently ran a preposterous segment suggesting that James Madison called the Electoral College evil, a shameful distortion and an absurdity given that the man known as the Father of the Constitution had a direct hand in creating the institution. Others have made more serious but ultimately absurd indictments of the Electoral College. Among the biggest stretches made by critics of the...

    There is no shortage of issues upon which Republicans and Democrats can respectfully disagree. Were silly people sometimes though, and respect seems to come at quite a cost. There are a handful of issues, however, on which Democrats are so profoundly and dangerously wrong that I find myself incapable of empathy. Beto ORourke, Senator Kamala Harris, Senator Cory Booker, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and more have come out for eliminating the Electoral College. This is an unequivocal deal-breaker for me. It seems one of the only Democrats with any sense is the anti-establishment progressive, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who...

    WND ^ | February 15, 2019 | Craige McMillan
    Many of us like to blame God for our difficulties. The reason is that it absolves us of responsibility for our bad choices. It also ensures we wont recover. Nations are groups of individuals clumped together, primarily by geography. In a democratic nation, if a majority of the voting population chooses wisely, the entire nation will benefit from those choices (even those who oppose the choices). In a democratic republic, such as the United States, we are one step removed from our responsibility. We dont choose the policy directly; we choose the people who in turn choose the policies and...
  • Infrastructure returns as a bipartisan issue in Washington

    The Arizona Daily Sun ^ | February 13, 2019 | Robert Krol
    President Donald Trump called for a bipartisan effort to pass an infrastructure bill in his latest State of the Union speech. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao echoed the same sentiments shortly after the speech. Yet both failed to provide a few details as to what ought to be included in such a bill, and leaving the details to Congress is problematic. So far, most congressional discussions on any infrastructure bill have focused on ways to fund more federal spending. Letting Washington simply throw more dollars at roads and bridges, however, is a bad idea. Whatever we spend, politicians should take...

    Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, in a fiery address on Monday, declared New York independent from the federal government. Invoking the Revolutionary War, the third-term Democratic governor said the state must stand up to what he describes as a federal assault on the states values, while outlining his 20-point agenda for the coming legislative session. Ladies and gentlemen, this nation is in crisis. The social fabric is fraying and it is nearing its breaking point, he said. We must stand up to this tyranny once again. Not with muskets the way our founders did. But with our voices and our votes...

    The Senate is expected to vote Tuesday on an amendment that would federally legalize marijuana by allowing states to regulate their own medical and recreational pot markets. But even one senator can block a vote on the amendment, which would address a longstanding conflict between federal and state law. Sen. Cory Gardner, D-Colo., is seeking to attach the measure to the First Step Act, a bundle of prison, prisoner re-entry, and sentencing reforms that senators voted 81-12 to advance Monday.

    The landmark law governing adoptions of Native American children, designed to keep them within Native American families, has been struck down as unconstitutional by a federal judge in Texas. In an Oct. 4 ruling that has stunned Native American rights advocates, U.S. District Judge Reed OConnor found that the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 illegally gives Native American families preferential treatment in adoption proceedings for Native American children based on race, in violation of the Fifth Amendments equal protection guarantee. Additionally, OConnor ruled that the law violated the 10th Amendments federalism guarantees, specifically the so-called anti-commandeering principle established by...
