In an interesting USA Today op-ed by George Mason University law professor Llya Somin explores the galling paradox Obama messiah must face when the White House loses high-court cases 9-0 time after time. Professor Somin thinks that the president “is going too far” in pushing what I call his Marxist/Alinsky agenda to systematically deconstruct American law and society. A literary analogy would be Don Quixote tilting at windmills. A historical analogy is Hitler (a National Socialist) burning down the Reichstag and blaming it on his fellow fascists, the communists, and on his scapegoat, the Jews.
Justice Thomas was born 65 years ago this day in the little town of Pin Point, Ga. This tribute essay celebrates the Natural Law and originalist jurisprudence of Thomas, which mandates a synthesis between legality and morality. For 23 years now, Justice Thomas has almost single-handedly upheld a reverential respect, reliance and expertise for the original ideals and intent of the constitutional framers that is tantamount to the transcendent.
Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old college dropout and contract computer analyst for the National Security Administration has leaked very sensitive information of national concern, which can harm all Americans by putting our safety in jeopardy by alerting America’s enemies of our vulnerabilities. Snowden, in violating his oath of secrecy, was unrepentant: “Everyone everywhere now understands how bad things have gotten – and they’re talking about it. They have the power to decide for themselves whether they are willing to sacrifice their privacy to the surveillance state.”
Most conservatives, including radio icon Mark Levin, have nothing but utter contempt toward Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. and his acolyte, Sen. Lindsay Graham, calling them “media whores” for constantly pushing amnesty for illegal aliens, their incessant strivings to always be in the media eye and especially for their frequent claims of being a “conservative” while at every opportunity slandering young Turk conservatives like Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, Rand Paul, R-Ky., Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and my favorite, Ted Cruz, R-Texas.
Welcome to President Obama’s brave new dystopian world of anti-Fourth Amendment fascism where he is pushing radical policies allowing the IRS to read your emails without a warrant; Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., recently had his private office conversation illegally bugged, possibly by Democratic Party agents and published in Mother Jones (a la Nixon’s Watergate); and tens of thousands of drones are watching, recording and armed to bomb American citizens on American soil without judicial oversight or due process.
“On February 2011, TV host Glenn Beck aired a provocative segment titled, “Hiroshima vs. Detroit: Which city really embraced the American dream?” I was born and educated in Detroit. Nobody enjoys viewing a video equating a city obliterated by an atomic bomb almost 70 years ago as light years beyond Detroit today, yet the truth is the truth.”
In their notes on the Sixth Amendment, O’Connor and Sabato’s textbook, “American Government: Roots and Reform,” wrote that it was “the centerpiece of the constitutional guarantees afforded to individuals facing criminal prosecution … [and] sets out eight specific rights, more than any other provision of the Bill of Rights.” Here is the full text of the Sixth Amendment:
>The Seventh Amendment of the Constitution of the United States was ratified in 1791 as part of the Bill of Rights; it formally established the rules governing civil trials. The amendment’s objective was to preserve a distinction between the responsibilities of the courts (such as deciding matters of law) and those of juries (such as deciding matters of fact). Virtually all of the Seventh Amendment’s provisions originated in the English common-law tradition and with few exceptions have experienced only marginal revisions.
In characteristic, succinct style the Eighth Amendment has few words – Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted – yet the Eighth Amendment has produced a vast volume of commentary and litigation since its ratification in 1791. This should not be surprising, as the three major provisions of the amendment address some of the most controversial and emotionally charged issues concerning the rights of criminal defendants, which were greatly expanded during the eras of the Warren Court (1953-69) and the Burger Court (1969-86).
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. These are the 21 simple yet transcendent words of the Ninth Amendment. This country would not exist as we know it if the Bill of Rights and in particular the crucial Ninth and Tenth Amendments weren’t also included to protect federalism – states’ sovereign rights over federal socialist tyranny.
President Obama is hellbent on using his 23 executive orders not only to take away America’s guns, but he is deputizing all doctors to snitch on any of their patients who are gun owners. Obama’s progressive plan to eradicate the Second Amendment is systematic – first by registration, second by regulation, third by confiscation, and finally by mass extermination.
In my last column, I made the historical connection between presidents Wilson and Obama, characterizing Obama as “Wilson reborn.” In other words, if the radical legislation Wilson signed 100 years ago in 1913 was what I call “the birth of a Tragedy,” then America is collectively living through the ghoulish resurrection of Wilson through Obama. To help people understand the existential connection between these progressive leaders, Mark Levin, a conservative intellectual, radio host and best-selling author, on his Dec. 19 show, took the occasion to read from Woodrow Wilson’s 1908 treatise, “Constitutional Government in the United States.”
It was about 100 years ago when Russian communist tyrant Vladimir Lenin said, “Give me four years to teach the children, and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” Why did Lenin just want the children? Because Marxists, socialists and fascists are all such master manipulators of human nature and understood that a child’s mind was essentially a tabula rasa (blank slate) whereby the State could purge their minds of any and all remnants of God, tradition, truth, liberty and rewrite their perverse Darwinian, Marxist and socialist worldview of history onto these impressionable young minds, which, if done systematically, would endure for 1,000 years.
Are you like me? Are you sick of President Obama at every campaign stop bragging about how he saved GM, how he singlehandedly saved the U.S. auto industry? “Bin Laden dead, GM alive.” This is typical Marxist disinformation on a grand scale, or as Joseph Goebbels said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”
“In 1930s Chicago, CPUSA recruited journalists to help spread Soviet influence in American public opinion. Frank Marshall Davis was one of them. A graduate of Kansas State Journalism School, Frank Marshall Davis joined the Communist Party and began writing for The Chicago Star. He was a colleague of journalist Vernon Jarrett, father-in-law of Obama confidant Valerie Jarrett. Davis also taught at Chicago’s Abraham Lincoln School, a Communist-run training school run by CPUSA. …”
