    ...Reading conservative sites the last week, I’m getting that vibe from both the chattering skulls and their readers who show up in the comments. There’s a state of shock at what has transpired over the two weeks.Their preferred party sold them out to please global finance. The court untethered itself from the English language and made itself the enforcer for the Cult of Modern Liberalism. Not only was the Right not winning, they were blown off the field. As I pointed out the other day, the gay marriage ruling is the biggest assault on religious liberty in the history of...

    In the wake of last week’s “landmark” decision by the U.S. Supreme Court mandating nationwide acceptance of gay marriage, some states have begun pushing back, essentially telling Uncle Sam what he can do with his high court ruling. In Texas, Attorney General Ken Paxton has issued an opinion stating that county clerks, judges and justices of the peace could refuse to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, noting that the SCOTUS ruling did not abolish religious liberty. “This newly minted federal constitutional right to same-sex marriage can and should peaceably coexist with longstanding constitutional and statutory rights, including the rights...

    Trashing the Tenth Amendment. Let’s refresh our memories about exactly what the Tenth Amendment says: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. That is not ambiguous. If the Constitution doesn’t expressly grant the federal government a power or expressly prohibit the states from exercising that same power, then the states and not the federal government have that power. But in both the ObamaCare ruling and the gay marriage ruling last week, the Supreme Court ruled as if the Tenth...

    The U.S. Supreme Court must think God asleep. In its most odious decision since Roe v. Wade, which over the past four decades has resulted in the slaughter of more than 57 million unborn children, the High Court on Friday declared homosexual marriage a Constitutional right. In a majority opinion at odds with his putative Catholic faith, Justice Anthony Kennedy suggests that those who oppose “marriage equality” just don’t get where lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders are coming from. “It would misunderstand these men and women,” wrote Kennedy, “to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that...

But he said that the power of the people can defeat the cartel: "The game is rigged, and they want to keep it that way. People know it is happening and feel helpless to change it.

    The United States no longer has, as the Constitution designed, a government composed of executive, legislative and judicial branches, separate, but equal in power. The federal government is now an alliance of branches, devoted to the preservation of government itself, separate, not from each other, but from the American people and dedicated to tyranny. The policies pursued by the Obama Administration and facilitated by cowardly politicians and a compliant media are not simply the intersection of radical ideology and incompetence, but a dangerous subversive element of an anti-American and anti-Western strategy.

    On June 26, the Huffington Post ran a column focused on how Australian comedian Jim Jefferies “shoots down [the] 2nd Amendment with humor.” A central component of this “humor” is to equate gun rights with slavery and talk about how a constitutional amendment—like the one that banned slavery—could be used to overturn the protections the Second Amendment affords to the rights of self-defense and bearing arms. After all, Jefferies makes clear that he does not believe guns are actually used for protection. And he tells an anecdotal story to explain why: I had a break in in Manchester, England where...

This is not very surprising. We have not been publishing or writing much about the King v.

    Republicans like to talk about impeaching President Obama, but there is a far more deserving candidate for impeachment—Chief Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Court. While the Republicans in Congress have blocked Democrats from enacting much of substance, the GOP majority in control of the Court has been effectively legislating on its own, following an agenda neatly aligned with their conservative party. Step by step, the five right-wing justices are transforming the terms of the American political system—including the Constitution. They empowered “dark money” in politics and produced the $4 billion by-election of 2014. They assigned spiritual values to soulless...

    (CNSNews.com) – Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Rep.

"Protecting religious freedom from Government intrusion is a Government interest of the highest order," the bill states. If the U.S. Supreme Court rules in Obergefell v. Hodges that gay marriage is a constitutionally protected right, the First Amendment Defense Act (S. 1598, H.R. 2802) would prevent the Internal Revenue Service from denying tax-exempt status to churches that refuse to...

It’s been celebrated, and appropriated, by everyone from Tea Party members to Jay Z, who called his latest album “Magna Carta Holy Grail.” But its fame rests on several myths. First, it wasn’t effective. In fact, it was a failure. John was a weak king who had squandered the royal fortune on a fruitless war with France. Continually raising taxes to pay for his European adventures, he provoked a revolt by his barons,...

In particular, the Framers worried that one region or interest within the nation, constituting a bare majority, would make a treaty advantageous to it but prejudicial to other parts of the country and to the national interest.... Under the Articles of Confederation, treaties required assent of a supermajority (nine out of thirteen) of the states, and the South was able to block the treaty. It was undoubtedly that experience that impelled the Framers to carry over the supermajority principle from the...

    The First Amendment to the Constitution states: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. The Waco Police Department and other police departments blatantly tried to prevent a peaceful assembly and public officials have slandered the attendees ever since. The majority of the 176 people arrested after the Waco Massacre were arrested because they were wearing motorcycle club indicia, or insignia, and such...

    The Rock Hill Herald ^ | June 8, 2015 | Austin G. Abercrombie
    If Scott Cost thinks that Ted Cruz is scary because he declared in a speech, “our rights don’t come from man. They come from God Almighty,” then he would really be frightened of the Founding Fathers. Enshrined in our Declaration of Independence are terms such as the “Laws of Nature and Nature’s God,” referring to God’s law written on the heart and God’s law revealed in the Bible, and “they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,” referring to rights bestowed by God and non-transferable to anyone else. Cost would be absolutely terrified of Martin Luther King, Jr....

    Today we will continue our weekend theme of the wisdom of Monty Python. Butt first, a brief review of Daniel Henninger’s comments on Barry’s fundamental transformation of Amerika: The central feature of Mr. Obama’s rewrite of what one might call the Founding Fathers’ original vision has been to abolish Congress. (SNIP)Barack Obama, channeling decades of theory, says constantly that the traditional system has failed. He said it in his 2011 Osawatomie, Kan., speech: “It doesn’t work. It has never worked.” (SNIP)With Congress rendered moribund, the new branch of the American political system is the federal enforcement bureaucracy. So, what would Monty...

    The U.S. constitution has remained in place with occasional substantive amendments over more than 220 years. U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders in a foreword to the book Dollarocracy wrote that, “we cannot govern our own affairs when our national, state, and local debates are bought and sold by billionaires, who use thirty-second commercials to shout down anyone who disagrees…The money and media election complex, producing a slurry of negative ads, spin, and obstruction, is not what the founders intended.” [1] Sanders was right to suggest that the United States’ revered “founding fathers” would be scandalized by the plutocratic madness of the...

    May 30, 2015 Published by Stand Up America For: Limited Distribution The AMERICANS strongly believe that life, liberty, citizenship and the pursuit of happiness are the unalienable RIGHTS of every American Citizen that cannot be taken or transferred. However, not until We the People become brutally frank with ourselves and with each other will the Constitution be taken off the shelf and once again become operational. Only then can the Republic can be restored and preserved in its original ordained Constitutional Power and form. We The People have suffered enormously since 1913 under the combined rule of two domineering political...
  • Either rap is dead or I have to vote for Ted Cruz now

    Either Ted Cruz is hip or rap is dead. I am not sure which. It has to be one of the two. A group called We Are Watchmen, a Christian rap group from the Chicago suburb of Westchester, has made what can be loosely described as a “rap paean” to Ted Cruz. It is entitled “Set It On Fire.” It is about four minutes long, and if you listen to it enough times, every ounce of hipness drains from your body and you become Donny Osmond. (VIDEO-AT-LINK)The title is misleading. The gist of the song is that you should vote...
