Thanks to Obama and his minions on the left, we now live in a bizarro world where the criminal illegal alien has more rights than the law-abiding citizen and the Muslim terrorist is more sympathetic in leftist circles than the murdered US soldier.
It can be summed up by the following: lawlessness, indebtedness, social decay and foreign policy disasters.
Best passage, and something that needs a great deal of attention, how the four far-left justices are no longer impartial judges, but a radical leftist voting block:
“Did you notice that there was not an iota of speculation about how the four Progressive justices would vote?
There was never a shadow of a doubt. In the plethora of opinions generated by these three cases, there is not a single one authored by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, or Sonia Sotomayor. There was no need. They are the Left’s voting bloc. There was a better chance that the sun would not rise this morning than that any of them would wander off the reservation.
How can that be? Jurisprudence is complex. Supple minds, however likeminded, will often diverge, sometimes dramatically, on principles of constitutional adjudication, canons of statutory construction, murky separation-of-powers boundaries, the etymology of language, and much else. Witness, for example, the spirited debate between the Court’s two originalists, Scalia and Clarence Thomas, over a statute that, in defiance of Obama policy, treats Jerusalem as sovereign Israeli territory. But not the Court’s lefties, not on the major cases. And it is not so much that they move in lockstep. It is that no one expects them to do anything but move in lockstep-not their fellow justices, not the political branches, and certainly not the commentariat, right or left. It is simply accepted that these justices are not there to judge. They are there to vote… .
Once it has become a given that a critical mass of the Supreme Court is no longer expected, much less obliged, to do law, then the Court is no longer a legal institution.”
Ignoring this case and addressing the bigger Constitutional issue, this has become a national tragedy. These four leftists judges voted identically on 15 of 16 cases this year, with only one straying in a single case. How is this even possible? It has rendered the SC a complete farce. And leftists Dems and their media toadies hold them up as paragons of jurisprudence and objectivity, yet always in the right. These four are not intelligent jurists, they are mindless zombies for the left. By comparison, the three solid conservative justices only voted in block on 11 of 16 cases.
No truce with the left:
The tolerant left, yeah right:
You can’t compromise with culture warriors:
Secular media stupidly proves Catholic Vote’s point by slamming video:
I told you. Radical leftists and their media friends will do everything they can to stifle dissent and marginalize Christian. It is time to fight back. Stand up, be heard and go on the attack. It is time to go after the left and left-wing media propaganda as anti-Christian bigots! Label them “Christianophobes”. Repeat daily for years. That is how we ended up here in the first place. A long-term propaganda war from the left.
No sane person isn’t outraged by the horrible church shootings in Charleston SC. Such crimes cannot be condemned loudly enough. However, as per usual the reaction from the left, it’s media toadies and the increasingly frightened business community has been what? Ban a flag! The Confederate flag of course. Oh, that’s it, these horrible acts of racism were due to flag!
As usual, the left does nothing to address the actual problem, it does something to make itself feel better. It’s actions are more often than not totally pointless and futile. For the left it isn’t about results, it is about making oneself feel like a good person. It is about thinking the ‘right” thoughts. Oh, and ironically, the perp was a drug offender, who, if he had been charged with a felony instead of a misdemeanor, would not have been able to LEGALLY buy his gun in SC. And here I thought drug offenders weren’t violent. Let the left wrap their heads around that.
With the troubling state of things in the US, the government needs to change “Independence Day” to “Dependence Day”. Cradle to grave entitlements, Obamacare, out of control regulation, the record size and intrusiveness of government, government defined marriage, the Fed manipulation of financial markets, the IRS, the NSA, I could go on and on. Leftists in academia, the media, and the Democratic party want to control every aspect of your lives, except for sex and its consequences, of course.
So go ahead, celebrate Dependence Day this year.
Government should never be allowed to induce a private individual or a private entity to perform a service or provide a “benefit” if it violates their Constitution rights, but that is exactly what the government is attempting to do as it relates to freedom of religion. Fortunately, in the Hobby Lobby case pertaining to abortion coverage, the government lost. But the assault on religious freedom from the same-sex marriage crowd has started.
Advocates of SSM want their lifestyle to trump all other rights. They want to become THE number one protected class. They claim that failure to perform services for SSM is the same as racial discrimination, but this is categorically false. No legitimate religion argues for discrimination on the basis of race. Furthermore, the advocate of SSM has plenty of remedies. If someone won’t bake them a cake or allow a ceremony to be held at their hall, there are plenty of other options – people and businesses that will gladly serve them. Furthermore this is nothing more than a thinly-veiled attack on Christianity, especially Catholic and Evangelical churches. Funny, but I don’t see the SSM crowd asking Muslim bakers to bake them a cake, or an African-American church getting pilloried over their opposition. I can’t wait for that. There will be all kinds of unintended consequences if religious freedom is not respected and protected. What we be next, Satanists forcing Christians to serve them at their ceremonies? Muslim or Jewish caterers forced to serve pork? It is a slippery slope.
I can be agnostic on religion and still be deeply offended by the government’s overreach. At a high level, government should never have the right to infringe on a businessperson’s Constitutional freedoms, be it religion, association, speech, ect. If businesses want to turn away customers with ill intent, it will eventually hurt their bottom line.
