    I liked it when the howling loonies started pounding on the bronze doors of the Supreme Court like Brett Kavanaugh was totally going to open them up and invite the freaks in to air their many stupid grievances over a hot cup of Too Damn Bad. I also liked it when Lindsey Graham dissed that silly shrieking harpy as he adjusted his tie and smirked. And I liked it when Jesse Kelly channeled Andrew Breitbart by heading down to the protest with a t-shirt that said “Hands Off My Uterus.” I liked a lot of things about last week, and...

    Breitbart ^ | 10/20/2018
    Far-left comedienne Chelsea Handler said her supposed white privilege makes her feel “very gross” about herself, adding that her skin color and Jewish heritage has played an instrumental role in her success. In an interview with ABC’s Ellen DeGeneres, Chelsea Handler discussed her upcoming Netflix series on the issue of white privilege and what inspired her to do it. “I just started to think about all the privilege I’ve benefited from in this industry, specifically — being a Jew is a bonus, being a girl as a comedian when I was coming up,” she explained. “I had every advantage. Every...

    Harvard Law Review ^ | MAR 11, 2015 | Neal Katyal & Paul Clement
    PDF We have both had the privilege of heading the Office of the Solicitor General during different administrations. We may have different ideas about the ideal candidate in the next presidential election, but we agree on one important principle: voters should be able to choose from all constitutionally eligible candidates, free from spurious arguments that a U.S. citizen at birth is somehow not constitutionally eligible to serve as President simply because he was delivered at a hospital abroad. The Constitution directly addresses the minimum qualifications necessary to serve as President. In addition to requiring thirty-five years of age and fourteen...
  • Colorado Court of Appeals upholds state’s ban on “large” capacity magazines

    The Gazette ^ | 10/20/18 | Marianne Goodland
    The Colorado Court of Appeals, in a unanimous opinion issued Thursday, upheld the state’s ban on large-capacity ammunition magazines of 15 rounds or more. The lawsuit dates back to the contentious 2013 legislative session in which Democrats, who controlled both the House and Senate, passed a trio of gun-control laws, including one that banned ownership of an ammunition magazine with 15 rounds or more. The case was brought by Rocky Mountain Gun Owners. Several other groups also signed on with the plaintiffs, including the Colorado Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors Association; Sheriffs Chad Day of Yuma County, Shannon K. Byerly of...

    They forget President Obama’s dictum: “Elections have consequences.” One is the President’s right to nominate Federal judges. But from their perspective, “consequences” must never apply when they lose – and the Electoral College must be abolished when it works as our Founding Fathers intended: to keep populous urban areas from dominating presidential elections and imposing a tyranny of the majority. (The fact that 85% of all US counties voted for Donald Trump illustrates this principle in action.) In most of these cases, “they” are the Antifa mobs. Antifa being short for “anti-fascist.” Don’t be conned. The Antifa mobs are fascists!...

    MONTGOMERY, Alabama, October 19, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Today, the Alabama Supreme Court unanimously ruled in the case of Jessie Phillips v. State of Alabama that “the value of the life of an unborn child is no less than the value of the lives of other persons.” In a concurring opinion, Justice Parker boldly called on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. “I urge the Supreme Court of the United States to reconsider the Roe exception and to overrule this constitutional aberration,” wrote the Alabama Supreme Court judge, and recommended that the Court “return the power to the states...

    With Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., suggesting Democrats might investigate Brett Kavanaugh if their party takes back the House in November, the credibility of Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation of attempted rape by the new Supreme Court justice 36 years ago remains relevant. Ford has been unable to corroborate her story, and three people she named as witnesses, along with Kavanaugh, testified under penalty of perjury that they remember no such event. She initially claimed four boys who later became prominent in Washington, D.C., were present at the alleged attack and that it took place when she was in her late teens,...

    Americans' support for a ban on semi-automatic guns in the U.S. has dropped eight percentage points from a year ago, when opinions were more evenly divided after the mass shooting in Las Vegas. Last year's measure was unusually high for the trend over the past several years; the current 40% is back to within a few points of where it was between 2011 and 2016.

    In the spring of 1990, after he had helped the first George Bush reach the presidency, the political consultant Lee Atwater learned that he was dying. Atwater, who had just turned 39 and was the head of the Republican National Committee, had suffered a seizure while at a political fund-raising breakfast and had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. In a year he was dead. Atwater put some of that year to use making amends. Throughout his meteoric political rise he had been known for both his effectiveness and his brutality. In South Carolina, where he grew up, he...

    Speaking in South Florida to Parkland students and parents earlier this week, House Minority Leader Pelosi called the activists a “blessing to our country,” and said that because of their energy on the issue, gun control would be a priority for Democrats should they take back the House in the midterm elections. “I admire you so much,” she said. “You have the purpose, the generosity of spirit. You have the marchers — you have people who will go out there to make a difference — and you just have a relentless, persistent, dissatisfied approach.” But not all parents of Parkland...

    Texas has been called the “disaster capital of the United States” by scientists, and that’s because Texas has any type of weather you can imagine. Tornadoes, hailstorms, severe weather, dust storms, floods, droughts, blizzards, ice, hurricanes and wildfires are all possible in the Lone Star State. “We get everything there is to get naturally because of our location,” Katharine Hayhoe said Wednesday night in the fourth installment of “Duets,” an ongoing conversation series hosted by the Arts & Life team of The Dallas Morning News. Hayhoe is the director of the climate science center at Texas Tech University and a...

    President Donald Trump, Florida Gov. Rick Scott, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, and others who oppose action to address human-induced climate change should be held accountable for climate crimes against humanity. They are the authors and agents of systematic policies that deny basic human rights to their own citizens and people around the world, including the rights to life, health, and property. These politicians have blood on their hands, and the death toll continues to rise. Trump and his minions are the loyal servants of the fossil-fuel industry, which fill Republican party campaign coffers. Trump has also stalled the fight against...

    Originally scheduled to be held at the NRG Arena on the NRG Park grounds, President Donald J. Trump's planned Oct. 22 rally for Senator Ted Cruz has been moved to the larger Toyota Center in downtown Houston. Trump had taken some heat from critics for previously promising that the event would be held at the "biggest stadium in Texas we can find" and instead settled for a smallish arena with a capacity of 8,000. The Toyota Center, first opened in October 2003, has a listed capacity of up to 19,000 for concerts and 18,300 for basketball. One of President Trump's...
