Supreme Court May Side with Trump Administration on Census

I guess we’ll find out in June. Heaven knows why it takes a month and a half to deliberate. Aren’t these 9 Justices supposed to know the Constitution back to front? And I take a bit of umbrage to calling them supreme Court “conservatives,” as if it’s just another political appointment.

from the Washington Examiner:

Supreme Court conservatives appear poised to support Trump administration in census dispute

An ideologically divided Supreme Court on Tuesday seemed likely to back the Trump administration’s efforts to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

For roughly 80 minutes, the justices heard arguments in a challenge to Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross’s decision to include a question about citizenship on the census form, which lower court judges have found to be a violation of federal law and the Constitution.

But the court’s five conservative justices appeared poised to allow the question to remain on the census and seemed sympathetic to the Trump administration’s argument that a citizenship question was needed to bolster enforcement of the Voting Rights Act read more

Joke of the Day

You’ve all heard of the Air Force’s ultra-high-security, super- secret base in Nevada, known simply as “Area 51?”

Well, late one afternoon, the Air Force folks out at Area 51 were very surprised to see a Cessna landing at their “secret” base. They immediately impounded the aircraft and hauled the pilot into an interrogation room. read more

We in America have developed a nasty habit of judging past events with present day standards. This is a big mistake. And a bigger mistake is the judgment of individuals who’ve contributed so much, just because they had one indiscretion, or worse, a perceived indiscretion.

In both New York City and Philadelphia, the iconic singer Kate Smith is being erased from history.

After it was uncovered that Smith, “sang racially insensitive songs in the early 1930s,” the New York Yankees pulled Smith’s famous rendition of “God Bless America,” from their song rotation. The NHL team, the Philadelphia Flyers, had a statue of her torn down and hauled away for the same reason. They have also ditched the song. read more

WND Exclusive – Should We Ban Dems from Speaking on 2nd Amendment?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

California representative Eric Swalwell is the latest empty suit to enter the presidential sweepstakes on the democrat side.

He evidently intends to make gun control – or rather, gun confiscation – his Numero Uno campaign agenda issue.

Last year Swalwell wrote: “An assault weapon, then, is a hand-held weapon of war, capable of spraying a crowd with more lethal fire in seconds. We should ban possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons, we should buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the law, and we should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons. The ban would not apply to law enforcement agencies or shooting clubs.” read more
