The nation seems resigned to ridding itself of all offensive history. So down come the Statues and portraits. But what about president Obama? Shouldn’t he then also be wiped away? After all, he has slave owners in his family tree. If they’re serious, Obama must also go.
The nation, it seems is experiencing a total polar shift, but it’s not North is South. It’s bad is good, good is bad, criminal is victim, victim is criminal, man is woman, etc.
This is what the left and now the BLM/Antifa movement have done. And we’ve allowed it. We’ve allowed a tiny slice of radical America to control a silent majority.
And it’s our fault. We, through our silence, our cowardice and virtue signaling, have allowed this other virus to flourish. And the only vaccine is to stand up, throw away your white guilt and just say no – we will not be a party to it.
John Roberts is at it again – telling the president what he can’t do with the authority clearly granted to the executive. He can’t rescind DACA, because five justices say so.
But what Alexander Hamilton, the musical hero of the left have to say about the judiciary’s power?

I think it was the late Sen. Arlen Specter who said, I didn’t leave the Republican Party – the Republican Party left me. Well, Arlen was wrong – he abandoned his principles and left the Republican Party. And that’s saying something, considering the state of the Republican Party.
Anyway, after Ted Cruz proposed retention elections for the Supreme Court, some big-time lawyers have come out against him, effectively saying that Cruz has gone off the reservation. To this I say, Ted Cruz didn’t leave the Supreme Court – the Supreme Court left him – and all of us.
That well-known right-wing journal, Salon.com , writes that, “Conservative attorney and prominent gay rights activist Ted Olson took a swipe at Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, saying the freshman senator had abandoned a fundamental understanding of the Constitution suggested a constitutional amendment barring same-sex marriage in the wake of the recent Supreme Court decision in favor of marriage equality.”
First: How can anyone be a “conservative attorney” and a “gay rights activist” at the same time? Second: how is proposing an amendment “abandoning a fundamental understanding of the Constitution?” Isn’t that what the amendment process is for? Is that not supposed to be one of only two ways to modify the Constitution?
Meanwhile, the Washington Post weighed in saying that Cruz should know better, being that, “Sen. Ted Cruz spent his years at Harvard Law school working to secure a Supreme Court clerkship and then made his name as a lawyer by arguing in front of the body nine times.”
They go on to accuse Cruz of suggesting such a thing is just a way of “seeking support from the right wing of his party.” Well that’s funny, because Ted Cruz is the right wing of the party! read more
