    "The law perverted! The law—and, in its wake, all the collective forces of the nation. The law, I say, not only diverted from its proper direction, but made to pursue one entirely contrary! The law becomes the tool of every kind of avarice, instead of being its check! The law guilty of that very inequity which it was its mission to punish! Truly, this is a serious fact, if it exists, and one to which I feel bound to call the attention of my fellow-citizens." —Frédéric Bastiat Genre(s): Law, Political Science Language: English
  • Hillary Clinton: Trump Held ‘Law-Breaking Convention’

    Breitbart ^ | August 28 2020 | ROBERT KRAYCHIK
    Hillary Clinton described the Republican National Convention (RNC) as a “law-breaking convention,” making her accusation via her verified profiles on Instagram and Twitter. She did not identify any laws that were allegedly broken by the RNC’s operations. Clinton cited a death count similar to the latest claim from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC currently categorizes 160,000 deaths as “involving COVID-19.” Clinton wrote, “What we saw last night sums up so much of the Trump administration: A law-breaking convention on your dime, on the lawn of your house, to celebrate a president like a king for...
  • 4 Years On, ‘Marriage Equality’ Slogan Still Doesn’t Add Up

    The Daily Signal ^ | June 26, 2019 | Ryan T. Anderson
    Most everyone in America was and is in favor of marriage equality. Most everyone was and is in favor of marriage equality because most everyone wants the law to treat all marriages equally. The debate in the United States in the decade and a half before Obergefell v. Hodges wasn’t about equality. It was about marriage. We disagreed about what marriage is. Of course, “marriage equality” was a great slogan. It fit on a bumper sticker. You could make a red equal sign your Facebook profile picture. It was a wonderful piece of advertising. And yet it’s completely vacuous. It...
  • Every Mouth Will Be Stopped...Romans 1-3 pt 5

    Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.(Romans 3: 19-20)We come to the conclusion of the teaching of Romans 1-3, which is the universality of sin. All are condemned as sinners by the Holy God. The references cited in the indictment all come from the law. Paul’s logic is that...

    This statement, and others like it, are a huge deal. This isn’t how the leader of a major civilized Western so-called “democracy” speaks to the citizenry. It is how a master talks to his slaves. How a ruler addresses his subjects. Those of us who are in disbelief over David Cameron’s recent language, don’t have to just point to the quote above. There’s a lot more to it than a simple quote. For example, the Guardian reports: The measures would give the police powers to apply to the high court for an order to limit the “harmful activities” of an...

    I am getting ready to start a series in my Sunday school class on the Feasts of the Lord, as described in the 23rd chapter of Leviticus. We are Southern Baptists, but there are 3 Seven Day Adventists who attend my class. I know what's coming: we are going to get tangled up with discussing whether or not Christians must follow Old Testament Law. I know the SDAs worship on Saturdays, and at least these 3 people claim to eat kosher (although it seems that to them it just means avoiding pork). I would appreciate any suggestions as to how...

    Adam Mueller, aka Ademo Freeman, stood inside the Keene District Courthouse in New Hampshire, waiting for Judge Edward Burke to step inside so he could ask him a question. Less than two minutes later, he was arrested for threatening the judge, a felony charge called “improper influence.” But Mueller had his camera rolling, so he captured the entire exchange on video. And there is absolutely no evidence that he threatened Burke. Here is that exchange, but you can also hear it for yourself in the above video: (Judge Burke enters the building) Mueller: “Judge Burke, can I ask you a...

    The Foundation for Economic Education, Inc 107 page PDF file ^ | 1850 | Frederic Bastiat (Foreword by Walter E. Williams Introduction by Richard Ebeling)
    (Excerpts from the introduction) I must have been forty years old before reading Frederic Bastiat's classic The Law. An anonymous person, to whom I shall eternally be in debt, mailed me an unsolicited copy. Reading Bastiat made me keenly aware of all the time wasted, along with the frustrations of going down one blind alley after another organizing my philosophy of life. "The Law" ... created order in my thinking about liberty and just human conduct. Bastiat's greatest contribution is that he took the discourse out of the ivory tower and made ideas on liberty so clear that even the...

    God has given to men all that is necessary for them to accomplish their destinies. He has provided a social form as well as a human form. And these social organs of persons are so constituted that they will develop themselves harmoniously in the clean air of liberty. Away, then, with quacks and organizers! Away with their rings, chains, hooks, and pincers! Away with their artificial systems! Away with the whims of governmental administrators, their socialized projects, their centralization, their tariffs, their government schools, their state religions, their free credit, their bank monopolies, their regulations, their restrictions, their equalization by...

    The Corner on National Review Online ^ | December 13, 2007 | Peter Robinson
    The other day, Jonah put some distance between himself and NR’s endorsement of Mitt Romney. I’d like to do the same. Romney strikes me as impressive, but also as terribly flawed. Over the next couple of days, I’ll do my best to explain. In the meantime, one observation. Endorsing Romney, the editors explained that they had decided against Fred Thompson largely because “Thompson has never run any large enterprise.” This brought to mind another Republican candidate—one whose management experience, like that of Fred Thompson, was limited to having served as a partner in a law firm. Abraham Lincoln.
  • God and the US government.

    THE LAW IS THE LAW So if the US government determines that it is against the law for the words 'under God' to be on our money, then, so be it. And if that same government decides that the Ten Commandments are not to be used in or on a government installation, then, so be it. I say, so be it, because I would like to be a law abiding US citizen. I say, so be it, because I would like to think that smarter people than me are in positions to make good decisions. I would like to think...

    The Charlotte Observer ^ | 11/10/06 | Amy Rainey and Franco Ordonez
    Gaston: No funds for illegal residents AMY RAINEY AND FRANCO ORDOÑEZ Q&A: Ask questions on immigration Gaston County commissioners have directed county officials to stop funding programs for undocumented immigrants in what marks the Charlotte region's most aggressive measure against illegal immigration. The resolution, passed Thursday by the all-Republican board, blames people living here illegally for a variety of social ills, and also orders county officials to limit their ability to live and work in the county. Some officials charged with enacting the resolution say it would have little effect, but commissioner John Torbett, who introduced the measure, said...

    Revelation 2:14-15 (14) But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. (15) So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate. Go to this verse on Bible Tools The structure of this paragraph ties together the doctrine of Balaam, the sins of eating things sacrificed to idols and committing sexual immorality, and the doctrine of the Nicolaitans.

    Verdict ^ | 1983 | Robert Brinsmead
    "Law" and "Commandments" in the Gospel of John Robert D. Brinsmead   Although the term "the Law" and the word "commandment" are often used interchangeably in the Bible, the Gospel of John makes a distinction between them. The expression "the Law" appears fourteen times in the Gospel of John. The word "command" or "commandment" also appears about fourteen times. It has long been noted that the Gospel of John is a book of controversy. The book depicts a great confrontation between Jesus and the Law, between Christ's or the Father's commandment and the Law, between Jesus and Judaism, and between...
