    MSNBC Host Suggests Supreme Court Justices Should Rule Based on Poll Numbers

    We should ignore old laws and demand that nine, unelected officials decide what new meaning they have based on recent poll numbers.

    This was the argument put forward by “MSNBC Live” correspondent Katy Tur when she questioned a guest about the judicial philosophy of President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

    Kavanaugh has been described as a “textualist” who adheres to the original meaning of the Constitution.

    “Based on where Americans stand on the issues—Americans have really moved in a much more progressive direction over the years—do you think it’s appropriate to continue to take such a strict originalist view of the Constitution given it’s 2018 and not 1776?” Tur asked J.D. Vance, a conservative commentator and author of “Hillbilly Elegy.” READ MORE...

    Liberal Professor Comes Out in Favor of Kavanaugh, Left Pounces

    Predictably, President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick has been met with mostly hysteria on the left.

    Even before Trump picked D.C. Circuit Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court, left-wing publications were floating absurd court-packing plans to counter him.

    Stacking the Supreme Court with more unelected judges, they argued, was a necessary measure to save “democracy.”

    It’s clear that whoever Trump nominated, most of the left would come out and define the pick as a threat to the republic. READ MORE...

    Even Before Nominee Named, Left Turns to Court-Packing to Save ‘Democracy’

    Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement sent many on the left over the edge.

    Even before President Donald Trump announced his nominee to replace Kennedy, progressives were lining up in fierce opposition.

    While it’s understandable that those on the left would be aggressively opposed to adding another advocate of the Constitution to the Supreme Court, some of the proposed counter moves to Trump’s pick range from silly to reckless.

    A Campus Reform video showed students at New York University denouncing the Supreme Court pick as “extremist” and “racist” before Trump even made his selection. READ MORE...

  • California Presses Assault on Free Speech With ‘Fake News’ Panel

    California Presses Assault on Free Speech With ‘Fake News’ Panel

    As the Supreme Court strikes blows against compelled speech and restrictions on free speech, California is doing its best to resist.

    One of the latest legislative proposals from California aims to make government the arbiter of truth.

    Senate Bill 1424 would create an advisory group on “fake news” to work with social media companies to weed out what the government deems incorrect information on the internet.

    This legislation, if passed, would require California’s attorney general to create the  group, consisting of “social media providers, civil liberties advocates, and First Amendment scholars,” to study and mitigate the problem of spreading false information. READ MORE...

  • What Lincoln Foresaw Would Occur Under Maxine Waters' Mob Justice

    What Lincoln Foresaw Would Occur Under Maxine Waters’ Mob Justice

    In 1836, at the Young Men’s Lyceum in Springfield, Illinois, a 28-year-old lawyer named Abraham Lincoln delivered one of his finest addresses.

    Lincoln condemned the sharp increase of mobs in America, which had exploded in number as the debate over slavery and regional animosity intensified.

    “Accounts of outrages committed by mobs, form the every-day news of the times,” Lincoln said.

    Many of these mobs had turned violent and subverted the law. They were undermining free government.

    Calls for civility are sometimes vapid excuses to shut down political dissent. But what’s occurring now in America is not just heated debate at political rallies, it’s a surge in mob activity directed at political opponents in everyday life. READ MORE...

  • The False Premise of the Equal Rights Amendment

    The False Premise of the Equal Rights Amendment

    The idea that the Constitution doesn’t protect equal rights for women, or that the Founders didn’t include women in their views about individual rights, is completely wrong.

    Unfortunately, some self-described members of the “Me Too” movement have embraced the so-called Equal Rights Amendment to “fix” the Constitution, including actress Alyssa Milano, who spoke at rallies to generate support in New York City and Washington, D.C.

    Illinois recently became the 37th state to ratify this proposed constitutional amendment, which says, in part: “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” READ MORE...
