Judge may Allow L.A. Restaurants to Reopen, Despite Government Lockdowns

Let’s not get our hopes up that a judge has been found in L.A. county that is actually sympathetic to the private sector and the Bill of Rights.

While it begins promising, keep in mind that the judge may still set public “safety” ahead of God-Given rights as spelled out in our, and his Constitution, which he swore to uphold.

from the Daily Wire:

On Wednesday, a judge instructed attorneys representing the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to return to court next week with medical evidence to justify a three-week ban on outdoor dining that many restaurant owners say could put them out of business. read more

Is McConnell Packing the Courts?

by: Brent Smith

It’s looking more and more like Joe Biden will be the next president. Notice I didn’t say it looks like Biden WON the election, or it looks like Biden will be OUR next president. In my opinion, which I think I’m still entitled to, at least for a while, Biden will not be my president. Not because of Sophomoric sour grapes, that “my” guy didn’t win, but because of the policy positions he and his radical handlers are already putting forth.

In years gone by, I and other like-minded constitutionalists just sucked it up and made the best of the duly-elected president. Yep, we didn’t like Obama. he was bad for America, but he won the election twice, fair and square. read more

If it Happens – Fear Biden’s First 100 Days

by: Brent Smith

The first 100 days – road sign

Decision Desk HQ and Business Insider called the presidential race for Joe Biden on Friday morning, after declaring Biden the winner of Pennsylvania.

They said the reason they called it is they simply followed the data.

I agree. The hard data should be followed. And under normal circumstances this would be fine. If Biden won fair and square, than that’s it.

But there has been just too much crap going on to simply trust “the data.”

I’m sure we’re all familiar with the term “garbage in – garbage out” – that the results of, say a computer model, is only as good as what is inputted. read more

What was it that Ginsburg said?

by: Brent Smith

Let’s play a “did she say it” game. Ready?

Number one:

“There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being the president in his last year,” Ginsburg said in a 2016 New York Times interview in which she called for Merrick Garland to receive a confirmation vote in the Senate.

She then added as to whether the Senate should take up a vote on Garland, Ginsburg said at the time, “That’s their job.”

And now number two:

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” Ginsburg told Clara Spera in the days before her death, NPR reported.

“Is this a trick question,” most would say. I mean, it says right there that Ginsburg said them both.” read more

Long Awaited Deportations may begin Next Year

Just one more reason why Donald Trump MUST win reelection!

from the Blaze:

Ninth Circuit clears way for Trump to deport up to 400,000 immigrants living in the US under Temporary Protected Status for years, even decades

But if Trump loses the election, the ruling likely won’t matter

A federal appeals court has effectively greenlit the Trump administration’s plan to deport up to 400,000 immigrants next year by ending the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) they have enjoyed for as long as two decades. read more

Our Truly Broken Justice System

John Weed was enjoying the Frederick County, Maryland, Fair last September when a group of teens surrounded him and beat him to death. One of the two brothers involved who later spat on Weed’s lifeless body has now been sentenced by the judge. Did he get the death penalty, which is what Weed suffered in front of his own family in broad daylight at a rural county fair? Nope, he was told to report to anger management class. Welcome to justice in America? read more

The Right to Assemble … in Church

by: Brent Smith

Last Friday, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge granted Los Angeles church-goers the right to worship inside the Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, despite Governor Gavin Newsom’s draconian restrictions.

“Superior Court Judge Gregory Alarcon ruled that [Los Angeles County-based] Grace Community Church can continue to hold indoor services as long as worshippers wear face coverings and practice social distancing,” writes the Blaze.

For many conservatives, this was hailed as a major victory, striking a legal blow at the heart of the radical, anti-religion left.

Well, I guess, in one sense, it kind-of is, if one only considers the case superficially. But looking at this situation through a constitutionalist lense – even a Common one (get it?), it’s only a partial win. read more

Levin is Right (Again) – He is a Disgrace

In one respect, this kind of isn’t news – or at the very least, nothing new. John Roberts has been an enemy of the Constitution for years. My opinion is that he is more of a political animal than a judge.

from the Daily Caller:

‘He’s A Disgrace’: Conservatives Turn On Chief Justice Roberts

  • Conservatives are turning against Chief Justice John Roberts after the Supreme Court justice sided with liberal judges in a monumental abortion ruling.
  • Roberts sided with liberal members of the Court in the close 5-4 ruling, saying “the Louisiana law imposes a burden on access to abortion just as severe as that imposed by the Texas law, for the same reasons.”
  • “Roberts has destroyed any credibility the Court may have had,” tweeted talk show host Mark Levin. “He’s a disgrace.”

Conservatives are turning against Chief Justice John Roberts after the Supreme Court justice sided with liberal judges in a monumental abortion ruling.

Roberts sided with liberal members of the Court in the close 5-4 ruling, writing that “the Louisiana law imposes a burden on access to abortion just as severe as that imposed by the Texas law, for the same reasons.”

Pro-lifers and conservatives alike had anxiously awaited Roberts’s decision on the landmark abortion ruling, worrying that Roberts might side with the liberal justices based on his votes earlier in June. read more

Turns Out Gorsuch is Just Another Black-Robed Legislator

from the American Thinker:

Et tu, Gorsuch?

Et tu, Gorsuch?  A little over three years into a lifetime appointment, and he’s already speaking for Justice Ginsburg when it comes to matters of transsexualism and forgotten all about Justice Scalia’s textualism.

No matter how hard we try, our “conservative” judges belly-flop into “strict constructionist” poseurs and weak-kneed judicial activists faster than Chief Justice Roberts can rewrite Obamacare into a tax.  I mean, you try to keep these “originalist” jurists on a philosophically sound path.  You teach them “right” from “wrong.”  You instill in them a respect for the law and the importance of always telling the truth.  You can’t be with them all the time, though.  You know they’re being tempted by strange leftists to rule by emotion and always let the “ends justify the means,” but you tell yourself, “we can count on a judge described by many as Justice Scalia’s natural successor, right?”  Right? read more

Embarrassingly Supreme Disappointment

Horowitz: Conservatives get massacred by fake ‘conservative’ SCOTUS

U.S. Supreme Court

Within 35 minutes today at 10 a.m. Eastern, what some thought was the most conservative Supreme Court of all time concocted a fundamental right to transgenderism in the context of labor law, erased the Second Amendment, and interfered with a state death penalty case, but declined to interfere with a California law that criminalizes law enforcement cooperation with federal immigration agents.

Taken in totality, the “conservative” legal movement, which has promoted the idea of “appointing better judges” rather than fighting the entire concept of judicial supremacism, has failed miserably. This was its Waterloo. read more
