It looks like the #BlackLivesMatters movement isn’t too happy with the country’s new focus on gay marriage.

Ted Cruz: Time to Rein In an Unconstitutional Supreme Court

From his column at the National Review.

This week, we have twice seen Supreme Court justices violating their judicial oaths. Yesterday, the justices rewrote Obamacare, yet again, in order to force this failed law on the American people. Today, the Court doubled down with a 5–4 opinion that undermines not just the definition of marriage, but the very foundations of our representative form of government. Both decisions were judicial activism, plain and simple. Both were lawless.

As Justice Scalia put it regarding Obamacare, “Words no longer have meaning if an Exchange that is not established by a State is ‘established by the State.’ . . . We should start calling this law SCOTUSCare.” And as he observed regarding marriage, “Today’s decree says that . . . the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court.” Sadly, the political reaction from the leaders of my party is all too predictable. They will pretend to be incensed, and then plan to do absolutely nothing. That is unacceptable. On the substantive front, I have already introduced a constitutional amendment to preserve the authority of elected state legislatures to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman, and also legislation stripping the federal courts of jurisdiction over legal assaults on marriage. And the 2016 election has now been transformed into a referendum on Obamacare; in 2017, I believe, a Republican president will sign legislation finally repealing that disastrous law.

……Not only are the Court’s opinions untethered to reason and logic, they are also alien to our constitutional system of limited and divided government. By redefining the meaning of common words, and redesigning the most basic human institutions, this Court has crossed from the realm of activism into the arena of oligarchy. This week’s opinions are but the latest in a long line of judicial assaults on our Constitution and the common-sense values that have made America great

……The Framers of our Constitution, despite their foresight and wisdom, did not anticipate judicial tyranny on this scale. The Constitution explicitly provides that justices “shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour,” and this is a standard they are not remotely meeting. The Framers thought Congress’s “power of instituting impeachments,” as Alexander Hamilton argued in the Federalist Papers, would be an “important constitutional check” on the judicial branch and would provide “a complete security” against the justices’ “deliberate usurpations of the authority of the legislature.”

But the Framers underestimated the justices’ craving for legislative power, and they overestimated the Congress’s backbone to curb it. It was clear even before the end of the founding era that the threat of impeachment was, in Thomas Jefferson’s words, “not even a scarecrow” to the justices. Today, the remedy of impeachment — the only one provided under our Constitution to cure judicial tyranny — is still no remedy at all. A Senate that cannot muster 51 votes to block an attorney-general nominee openly committed to continue an unprecedented course of executive-branch lawlessness can hardly be expected to muster the 67 votes needed to impeach an Anthony Kennedy.

……Rendering the justices directly accountable to the people would provide such a remedy. Twenty states have now adopted some form of judicial retention elections, and the experience of these states demonstrates that giving the people the regular, periodic power to pass judgment on the judgments of their judges strikes a proper balance between judicial independence and judicial accountability. It also restores respect for the rule of law to courts that have systematically imposed their personal moral values in the guise of constitutional rulings.

As I said:

The homosexual marriage decision was not based on the Constitution, but rather how the liberal justices felt about it.

IAW the Constitution, Congress passes laws. The Supreme Court interprets the law. There has been no law passed by Congress legalizing same-sex marriage in all 50 states.  Therefore, it’s a states rights’ issue….

What 5 robed judges did was make an unconstitutional  law. So what happens if a state decides to stand up for its rights and continue its ban on homosexual marriage by interpreting the ruling as “they’re allowed to, but there’s no law passed by Congress that can force us to concur.” Remember, this ruling does not reflect any law passed by Congress.  

The same thing happened with the ruling on the ObamaCare subsidies.

Congress doesn’t always stick with the Constitution, either. The Dems pushed through an oppressive, unconstitutional law, the SCOTUS ruled against the individual government mandate but upheld it as a tax. Which essentially left the unconstitutional law in place.

With this latest travesty, the taxpayer will be fleeced even more. The impact on the taxpayer and the national debt: 18 new taxes and penalties and an additional  $1.8 trillion over the next decade added to the national debt.

The SCOTUS figures that subsidies which accompany a law, albeit unconstitutional, which was amended and changed at the whim of a wannabe Emperor, should be upheld because otherwise “state exchanges would drown in a “death spiral.”  And without the subsidies to go with ObamaCare, John Roberts wrote, it is implausible that Congress meant the Act to operate in this manner.”

The DemProg majority that held power in 2010 meant it to operate this way; certainly not the GOP opponents nor the American people who are vehemently against it. The SCOTUS has slapped the face of the people.

The liberal malfeasants on the SCOTUS violated the rights of the people to debate, decide, and govern.

Time to drain the swamp.

 

Rush Limbaugh on the RINO Psyche

Rhino-Repub

 

From Rush Limbaugh.com

Now, see if this makes any sense to you. Real Clear Politics, they have this rolling series of polls. Obama job approval today: 44 percent. Disapprove: 51 percent. Direction of the country, right direction: 28 percent. On the wrong track: 63 percent. Does any of that make sense with what is happening in the country? Sixty-three percent think the country is on the wrong track, yet we’re told that there’s massive support for the court’s gay marriage decision and Obamacare being upheld and so forth.

I’m here to tell you, you think that you’re in the minority. You are not. You are actually in a pretty sizable majority that doesn’t have any real leadership or strategy or pushback or plan. I mean, they’re helping Obama pass trade bills. They’re thinking about joining Obama on amnesty and have been for a while. They don’t want to speak up on gay marriage in any shape, way, manner or form. They don’t want to object, go to court.

You’re voting in record numbers. You’re voting in landslide numbers, landslide victories in 2010 and 2014. You’re being pushed around by, in one instance, less than two percent of the population. It’s totally understandable if you think you’re losing your mind. It’s totally understandable if you’re asking what the heck’s going on. You’re not by any stretch of the imagination alone. You’re actually with a pretty big majority and there’s more polling data than just this to indicate it.

Bottom line: The GOP rank and file is dicked up.

The Republican party has collapsed into mush; they’re so afraid of ‘offending’ someone and taking the steps necessary to get this country back, it’s pathetic. They’re out of touch with the grassroots. They’ve forgotten the reason why we elected them to a majority; we wanted them to stop B. Hussein and his socialist Frankenstein dead in their fucking tracks. We want a return to the principles outlined by the founders. We the People are more than just the opening words in the U.S. Constitution, it’s a reminder that they are sworn to serve the citizenry, not the other way around. They’re tasked with the providing the nation’s security and maintaining individual and civil liberties. Instead, they sit on the sidelines, or in some cases, jump into the political sack with toxic DemProgs who have a visceral hatred of America and have made it their life’s work to subvert the fabric of the United States and the freedoms of its citizens.

……The answer could be no more complicated than RINO Republicans and Democrats have one thing in common, and it isn’t big government. It’s fear of and hatred of conservatives as a political force.

……There has to be a reason why RINO Republicans would stand idly by — and if not stand idly by, would join Obama and the Democrats here and there to further the Democrat agenda. I really think if you do believe that, that the explanation for it is the one thing they have in common is a fear of or hatred of or dislike of or what have you, us. Conservatives. Because another thing they all have in common is they love big government.  They want big government. They want big government getting bigger. They want bigger government swelling with more and more money. They want power and control over the money. They want to be able to dip their own hands into that pile of money and take out whatever they want for themselves. And conservatives, of course, want to do away with that. Conservatives want to make government smaller. We want to get rid of all the debt.

The GOP  villifiesinsults, and denigrates faithful grassroot Republicans and Tea Party Patriots for holding them accountable and demanding that they fulfill the promises they made. We expect that kind of filth from LeftProg Dems; not from our Republican representatives. The majority of the seats gained by the GOP in the House in 2010, was due in large part to the Tea Party movement; a fact that escapes their selective memories. We also had considerable influence in the 2014 mid-terms.

Instead of doing what we elected them to do, they cave in to the petty little tyrant in the White House and his tools in the Democratic Party.

……How many times can you recall the Democrats have won a presidential election and here comes a Supreme Court justice or a federal court appointment somewhere of a genuinely radical, practically communist judge, and your average Republican senator will say, “Well, the Republicans lost the election. The Democrats won and they get their nominees.”

When the Democrats lose elections, they push back immediately. They make it their objective to make sure that the Republicans do not benefit from winning. They do everything to screw up a Republican win, to deny it, to fight it, and the Republicans do not. When the Republicans lose an election, they chalk it up to a loss. They assume the American people rejected them. They assume the American people want whatever the Democrat president’s going to do and they stand by, stand aside and let it happen.

……The Supreme Court saved the Republicans because here was a chance, think about this, Obamacare could have been ended effectively yesterday. Had there been a correct decision, had there been a constitutional decision on that case, Obamacare would have been perhaps dealt its death blow, and the Republican Party did not want that. Because that would have meant the Republican Party had to come up with a plan. And the plan would have had to have included subsidies because Obamacare has been implemented long enough now that people are expecting them.

The GOP had several alternative plans to the ObamaCare disaster in 2009. The Dem majority discarded all of them and proceeded to ram ObamaCare through the Congress.  Not one of those plans, which are feasible by the way, has been resurrected as a replacement for the ObamaCare disaster.

……Republicans should want Obama to lose. And why? Because Obama is doing terrible damage to this country. He is literally inflicting damage on this country with his economic policies, with his health care policies, with his immigration policies, with his spending. Everything Obama is doing is wreaking havoc on this country! Put simply, Obama is doing terrible damage — by helping Iran obtain nuclear weapons, by refusing to enforce immigration laws, by releasing thousands of illegal immigrant felons into our communities, by failing to protect our cyber networks.

Of course, none of that sinks in with the GOP, which seems content to let Obama run roughshod over the country.  For his part, Obama blames America, Congress, and white men  for his own corruption and epic fails.

Unless or until the American public gets pissed off enough to do something about all this, the decline of America will continue until we hit rock bottom.

It Begins: Government Crackdown on Business Owners’ Freedom to Refuse Same Sex Weddings on Their Own Property

dems the party of tolerance

 

From the Daily Signal.

The owners of a small family farm in upstate New York fined $13,000 for discriminating against a same-sex couple for refusing to host a wedding on their property are fighting back.

In an appeal filed today before an appellate division of the New York Supreme Court, a lawyer for Cynthia and Robert Gifford, owners of Liberty Ridge Farm near Albany, N.Y., argued that when finding them guilty, the court did not consider their constitutional freedoms and religious beliefs.

“[The decision] violates the Giffords’ free exercise of religion, freedom of expressive association, and freedom of expression protected under the United States and New York Constitutions,” James Trainor, an allied attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom, wrote in the appeal.

The Giffords were found guilty of “sexual orientation discrimination” by an administrative law judge last July.

Because Liberty Ridge Farm is open to the public for seasonal activities such as an annual fall festival, the state of New York classifies it as a public accommodation that therefore cannot discriminate on the basis of certain personal characteristics, including sexual orientation.

“Discrimination in the name of civil rights is as abhorrent as discrimination which does violence to the concept of civil rights,” wrote the administrative law judge.

In a statement issued to press today, Trainor said the judge’s order “forces the Giffords to host same-sex ceremonies or to host no wedding ceremonies at all.” He added: The government is essentially saying to the Giffords, give up your faith, or give up your livelihood.

The conflict began on Sept. 25, 2012, when Melisa Erwin and Jennifer McCarthy, a lesbian couple, called the Giffords to ask them to host their same-sex wedding at Liberty Ridge Farm.

The Giffords live on the second and third floor of the barn and, when they host weddings on the first floor, open part of the second floor as a bridal suite.

Not wanting to go against her beliefs of traditional marriage, Cynthia Gifford politely declined the request. Unbeknownst to the Christian couple, the caller recorded their conversation. Shortly thereafter, the lesbian couple filed a complaint with the New York State Division of Human Rights.

Setup, anyone?

“We’re not hateful people,” Gifford said in an interview with The Daily Signal, holding back tears. “We just believe that a marriage is between a man and a woman, and we do not want to hold a [same-sex] marriage ceremony here on our family farm because the state tells us we have to do it.”

As punishment, the government fined the family $10,000 and ordered them to pay an additional $3,000 to the women.

This is the part that reeks of jack-booted totalitarian oppression:

The Giffords were also required to attend staff re-education training classes to teach the state’s viewpoint on marriage. These are the stipulations that the family is challenging with their appeal this week.

Just like the ‘re-education camps’ in communist countries.

The Gaystapo is pretty  hateful and intolerant of opposing viewpoints, Christianity in particular.

This is an infringement on the rights of others to voice their own opinions and exercise their own right to associate and do business with whom they choose.

They first asked for tolerance. Then they expected acceptance. Then they demanded participation. Lastly, they sued for punishment.

Michelle Malkin on the Left’s Bigotry Toward Minority Conservatives

From Michelle Malkin’s website.

I have had enough of smug liberal elites wrapped in their “Celebrate Diversity” banners tearing down minority conservatives.

Look in the mirror, media and academia bigots. Your own reflexive racism and divisive rhetoric are poisoning public discourse. There’s nothing “progressive” about attacking the children and grandchildren of immigrants who proudly embrace an American identity.

We are not “self-hating.” You just hate what we believe.

The most recent grenade tossed by the jack-booted Enforcers of Ethnic Authenticity came from The Washington Post this week. The Beltway fish-wrapper hyped a 2,100-word investigation of GOP Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal with a condescending quote from Professor G. Pearson Cross, who sneered: “There’s not much Indian left in Bobby Jindal.”

Has pallid Professor Cross invented an ambient diagnostic test to measure sufficiently acceptable levels of ethnicity?

The Post quoted a grand total of one disgruntled Democratic donor who railed against Jindal for “forgetting” his “heritage” and his “roots.” But that was more than enough for the apartheid-lite adherents to heed the dog whistle immediately. The Post’s splashy attack on Jindal’s assimilationist ethic spawned a vile Twitter hashtag game: #BobbyJindalIsSoWhite.

Left-wing racists mocked his skin color, his kids and his decision to change his name from “Piyush” to “Bobby.” A New York Times digital editor, Shreeya Sinha, gleefully linked to a BBC compilation of “The best of #BobbyJindalisSoWhite.” NBC News gloated over tweets from liberal Indian-Americans who mocked the accomplished governor, Rhodes scholar and father of three as a “Jindian.”

It’s the same old, same old from radical academics and reporters who spurned assimilation as a common goal long ago. As I’ve long observed, the media-ivory tower complex’s fidelity lies with bilingualism (a euphemism for native language maintenance over English-first instruction), ethnic militancy, extreme multiculturalism and a borderless continent.

If we conservatives “of color” refuse to promote the welfare state, unfettered abortion, affirmative action and massive immigration, we are guilty of “selling out.”

Conversely, if I point out that my skin is far darker than that of the TV progressives of pallor who presume to know more than me about what it’s like to experience prejudice, I’m accused of exploiting my ethnicity.

We’re coconuts, bananas and Oreos (brown, yellow or black on the outside and “white” on the inside).

We’re accused of “thinking” and “acting” white if we quote the Constitution, shoot, hunt, oppose high taxes, homeschool, take personal responsibility or demand that government leave us alone.

……Assimilation is a Class A felony in the liberal rulebook and a threat to the Democratic grievance racket. Tell me who the real racists and bigots are again.

DemProg excrement in the media, academic intelligentsia, and the political arena, particularly hate black conservatives for refusing to tow the party line. They spew misogynist hatred, fling racial slurs at black and white Republican/Tea Party members and hurl psychotic death wishes at all three for good measure.

But they’re liberal bigots, so it’s okay.
