Well, our vaunted United States Supreme Court has agreed to take up a case regarding the Second Amendment.
This is pretty uncommon, but it does happen – mostly because the Supremes over the years haven’t dared to actually do their jobs to the fullest, so their decisions seem to encompass a narrow scope and half-measures, never fully putting to bed that the Second Amendment clearly gives the right of an individual to “keep,” which means to own, and “bear,” which means to carry, arms on one’s person.
The Second Amendment makes no distinction between open and concealed carry, and thus any argument against either is moot. Nor does it make mention of licenses and/or permits, which is what this upcoming case is about, so these, too, are moot. read more
Some days it’s tough to be a conservative. It feels like we’re battling everyone over everything. But when the left owns the Executive and the Legislative branches of the federal government, it seems like we may not return to any kind of sanity any time soon, if ever. And it appears, more often than not, that we’re losing, or have lost, the federal judiciary, in all but a few instances.
We expect the other two branches to act like politicians – they are, after all. But when our courts also become overtly political, where is it we can go anymore for redress of our grievances? This may be a question that will go unanswered and I’m beginning to think it is purely rhetorical.
One by one, the courts are striking down conservative’s constitutionally affirmed First Amendment rights, while granting the same to the left. And thus it is, as Daniel Horowitz discusses the courts complete lack of concern regarding Parler, the free speech alternative to Twitter. read more
I agree 100% with the author, Jerome Michaels, regarding this topic. It does seem that our United States supreme Court has abandoned us, and more importantly, abandoned their sworn duty to uphold and defend the Constitution. Because of their non-decision regarding the 2020 election States vs States case, our nation may be irreparably harmed.
And all, in my opinion and his, to avoid making the right choice to at least hear what the plaintiff States had to say for themselves. But no, they punted instead, or more appropriately, as referees, just called the game entirely before the clock even ran out.
But hey, look at size of their building. Must be plenty of places to hide!

A Supreme Court in Hiding is Dangerous for Our Country
In accordance with Art VI of the Constitution, every sitting Supreme Court justice has taken an oath swearing that he or she will “support this Constitution.” The Constitution the justices have sworn to protect is predicated upon free and fair elections so that the government reflects the will of the People. When the justices refuse to protect election integrity, they are violating their sworn oath and putting our constitutional republic at grave risk. read more
Every single elected official, and even most unelected officials in the nation – local, State and national, takes an oath – makes a solemn promise to uphold, protect and defend their State’s and the U.S. Constitutions.
Yet in every single disputed State, four specifically – Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, State officials knowingly and with malice broke their promise and vacated their oath of office, by illegally changing various aspects of their States election laws.
As Mark Levin said, they have all effectively written out an entire section of the Constitution. It has been wiped away – gone – just like that.
And that goes for many State Constitutions. What is considered fraud, what is illegal in these States, has now magically been deemed legal and righteous. read more
How is this even a thing – the fact that we would even consider counted illegal aliens for Congressional redistricting.
And the fact that the Supremes just tossed the democrat appeal instead of just ruling that illegal immigrants, are by their name, illegal, and should not be in the country, which means they can’t be counted for anything and anytime.
So, while this is good news, it ain’t great news.

The Supreme Court punted on a clear cut State vs. State constitutional primary jurisdiction case, including all three of president Trump’s appointees. Once again, the only two interested in proceeding were Thomas and Alito.
Leftist social media, in other words all social media, are turning out to look more like Joseph Goebbels version of 1930’s media, and today’s platforms are beginning to more resemble the Volksempfänger propaganda radio. read more
For anyone, like me, who considers themselves a “constitutional” conservative, this election has been infuriating. We can hear and see the fraud. We know none of this passes our smell test. But possibly the most frustrating is the State of Pennsylvania.
Officials and courts, including even the Pennsylvania supreme Court, committed fraud against the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, by changing the rules of how elections must be run, when they are to be and what a “legal” vote is. This is indisputable.
Mark Levin discusses the many fraudulent facets of this most recent election, and that despite the left’s insistence upon safety due to COVID, most of these violations and usurpations of the State and federal constitutions were instituted well before anyone knew there was such thing as this coronavirus.
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.
