Why Did Ted Cruz Flip-Flop on Edward Snowden?

I have felt that Ted Cruz has been shifting his positions lately but I didn’t have concrete details about it until I saw Ben Swan’s video. Please watch it if you have time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VlL33JBb0s Swan is absolutely correct about Edward Snowden’s role in legislation. Snowden empowered Congress to deal (however weakly) with NSA surveillance because, until he blew the whistle, Congress was kept ignorant of it. Edward Snowden is a hero and Ted Cruz’s earlier statements Read more […]

What Happened to Justices of Roe v. Wade When they Met their Maker?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hy_0CeIyq5s This Friday will mark the anniversary of one of the darkest days in the history of our land. It will mark the 43 anniversary of the horrific opinion in which the Court claimed it was legal for a woman to hire a contract killer to murder the baby residing in her womb. Justices Burger, Douglas, and Stewart filed concurring opinions along side Blackmun who wrote the majority opinion and was joined by Marshall, Brennan and Powell. It was Murder they wrote Read more […]

The Source of Law, Rights, and Martin Luther King Jr

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1dKbveDcwM Please ponder, study, and memorize this statement with me. There is a God, our rights come from Him, and the only purpose of government is to protect and secure our God-given rights.  This week Americans will be paying tribute to this century’s likely brightest orator and most dedicated man to individual liberty, Reverend Michael King Jr. (aka Martin Luther King Jr.). While I am almost certain that the good minister from Atlanta, Georgia, would Read more […]

Is Chief Justice Roy Moore an American Hero?

The most reliable history book on record and the basis of authority for all American law, jurisprudence, and liberty challenges us with the question, “Have you not read that He Who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?” This question then creates what you might call the “Since-the Creation-of-Humankind” definition of marriage, Read more […]

House Committee: No Funding for New Gun Control

The House Appropriations Committee has warned the Department of Justice that it has no plans to approve funds for President Obama’s latest gun control schemes. House Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies subcommittee Chairman Rep. John Culberson wrote in a terse letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch that any executive orders on gun control should not be paid for out of already approved funding. “I want to express the committee’s expectation that the Department of Justice will Read more […]

A President is not a King and States Must Make Sure of It

Our nation’s first president, George Washington, under the newly formed Constitution in 1789, found himself in an uncomfortable position.  As the nation’s first Chief Executive and Commander-in-Chief he knew the delicate ground between strength and tyranny. Fearing any comparison to the monarchal government from which America had just been liberated, Washington took care to avoid any physical or symbolic references to European monarchs.  When the Senate proposed that he be called by the Read more […]

Congress Will Do Nothing about Obama’s Unconstitutional Gun Legislation

We have had plenty of time to be ready for Barack Obama’s executive orders. So what is Congress’ plan? Virtually nothing. The gun issue comes up 19 seconds into the video. Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) says that Barack Obama’s executive orders are unconstitutional. So what will Congress do? They will litigate. As the discussion explains well, Congress can’t count on the courts and, even if the judges follow the Constitution, it will take a long time for the courts to finally Read more […]

How Do People Know that Antonin Scalia is Wrong about God?

Here’s the Associated Press headline: “Scalia says God is “very good” to US because US honors him, dismisses religious neutrality.” There are a couple of different issues entangled in the headline. The story  brings up some others that just confuse the issue. It tells us that Antonin Scalia is “controversial,” as if this implies something is wrong with his view. Worse, right at the end it tells readers of “comments he made during an affirmative action case, questioning whether some black students Read more […]

Dare We Hope the Courts will Defeat Climate Change in 2016?

The Hill reports that 2016 will be a year of court fights against the Obama Administration: “Obama’s climate agenda on trial.” A slate of major environmental rules rolled out by the Obama administration in 2015 will face serious challenges in the new year, as opponents look to beat back the president’s ambitious policies — a core piece of his legacy. In the lead-up to the landmark Paris climate talks in December — an event that yielded a first-of-its-kind global agreement to cut carbon Read more […]

2015 Was a Productive Year for the Lawmaker-in-Chief

The Constitution gives Congress the authority to make laws. That’s proof the Constitution is a dead letter. Back in January, Mark Horne wrote that Obama was setting records in the amount of regulations he was issuing. Now, The Hill reports, “Study: 2015 was record year for federal regulation.” 2015 was a record-setting year for the Federal Register, according to numbers the Competitive Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C., released Wednesday. This year’s daily publication of the federal government’s Read more […]

Wouldn’t a Second Political Party Be Nice, Franklin Graham?

With Republicans in control of both the House and Senate, the expectancy of civilized, ethical Americans was that Congress would eliminate funding for the abominable child-murdering organization Planned Parenthood in 2016. Some members in the GOP threatened to shut down the government if that wasn’t done. Rather than shutting off the unconstitutional spigot of federal funding to a private sector organization that sells infant baby parts to the highest bidder, Planned Parenthood was given Read more […]

Ted Cruz Avoids Trouble for Talking about Secret Law?

The exchange above almost got Ted Cruz in trouble. NBC News reports: “Did Ted Cruz Reveal Classified Information at the GOP Debate?” The Senate Intelligence Committee now says that it is not formally investigating whether Ted Cruz may have revealed classified information when discussing the government’s ability to monitor phone records during Tuesday night’s Republican debate. “The Committee is not investigating anything said during last night’s Republican Presidential debate,” the two top Read more […]
