Brett Kavanaugh proves Trump lied about putting strict constructionists on the Court

Brett Kavanaugh proves Trump lied about putting strict constructionists on the Court

When Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy retired earlier this year, it was perfect timing for Trump and the GOP as they looked for political distractions to shift voter attention away from two years of ineptitude and broken promises ahead of the 2018 election.

But Kennedy’s retirement wasn’t enough on its own. What the GOP really needed was a manufactured crisis surrounding Kennedy’s replacement, and with help from the Democrats, they got their wish with the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. Thanks to the Brett Kavanaugh circus they were able to create, Trump and the GOP Clown Show succeeded in distracting voters even though it failed to save them from the Blue Tsunami.

I opposed Brett Kavanaugh from the beginning for many reasons:

As if these reasons weren’t enough, Kavanaugh testified during his confirmation hearing that he considered Roe v. Wade “settled Supreme Court precedent” that has been “reaffirmed many times.”

Kavanaugh’s nomination was contrary to Trump’s promise to appoint “strict constructionists” who would defend life. More disappointing than this betrayal, however, was watching so-called evangelicals give Trump their undying worship by supporting Kavanaugh’s nomination despite his checkered past.

Concerns about Kavanaugh’s support of a woman’s “right” to murder her unborn child were realized yesterday when he joined the Court’s liberal justices and Chief Justice John Roberts — but I repeat myself — to reject appeals by Louisiana and Kansas seeking to end public funding of Planned Parenthood through the Medicaid program.

By rejecting the appeal, the Court left intact lower court rulings that prevented Louisiana and Kansas from defunding the baby butchers.

When I shared the news of this betrayal on social media, I heard from an individual who incorrectly defended the decision by saying that it only affected the non-abortion services provided by Planned Parenthood. Why was he wrong? Because money is fungible.

Any money Planned Parenthood receives frees up funds to murder unborn babies.

Justice Clarence Thomas spelled out in his dissent the motivation behind this betrayal when he essentially called his fellow jurists cowards who lacked the courage to fulfill their constitutional responsibility and stand up to Planned Parenthood.

“What explains the Court’s refusal to do its job here? I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some of the respondents in the case are named ‘Planned Parenthood.’”

Justice Thomas is correct, but I’ll take it a few steps further.

This decision proves that Trump lied about appointing strict constructionist pro-life judges, that cheap-grace evangelicals care more about a seat at Trump’s table than they do the unborn, and that Kavanaugh is the fraud we knew he was all along.

Nation’s top court to decide whether law that bans encouraging illegal immigration unconstitutional

Nations top court to decide whether law that bans encouraging illegal immigration unconstitutional

Is it okay for speech to be used to show others how to break the law? Is the 1st Amendment applicable when telling someone how to circumvent federal immigration law? That’s what the Supreme Court will decide after the 9th Circuit struck down a law that would prevent Americans from helping illegal immigrants in this way.

As the Supreme Court picks up a slew of extremely important cases today, this one won’t get as much attention as it deserves. It’s not a particularly hot button for those who support illegal immigrants, nor is it a huge problem to those who support border security. But it does change the calculus as leftists often take their understanding of the loopholes in our porous immigration system and show potential illegal immigrants how to take advantage of it all.

Shocking commentary

Those who follow my writing know I am adamantly opposed to illegal immigration. It’s something near and dear to my heart as a new resident to Southern California, so I read and post stories every day about how we’re playing the fools by keeping it so easy to invade our nation from the south. That’s why my opinion on this law may shock some of you.

It’s unconstitutional, as the 9th Circuit says. Illegal immigration is a huge problem, but attacks on our Constitutional rights are even bigger threats. It’s not that I support those who help others circumvent our laws. It’s that I fear what laws like this could lead to in the future, particularly seeing how far the left is willing to go to strip us of our liberties.

If we say it’s illegal to tell someone how to circumvent immigration laws, then it will eventually become illegal to talk to others about our laws, period. Criticism of laws must remain protected speech, and that means openly discussing how to get around the most oppressive ones. Let’s say “assault weapons” were suddenly made illegal, but there’s a way to keep our firearms off the radar and protected from confiscation. Should alerting others of this information be illegal? Again, we’re not talking about the action of breaking the law. We’re talking about discussion of the law itself, whether showing someone how to break it or not.

We have many avenues through which we must fight illegal immigration. Instead of keeping people from talking about loopholes, we should just eliminate those loopholes. Restricting the 1st Amendment is not the answer.

Retired police officer stuns Democrats: ‘I will NOT comply’ with gun ban

Retired Police Officer Stuns Dems I Will NOT Comply With Gun Ban

A video of one voicing the words of many in opposing the erosion of our freedom with liberty control.

This is a video of the testimony of Dianna Muller, a retired police officer appearing before the House Judiciary Committee on an ‘assault weapon’ ban. She presented many of the main points in opposition to the ban and against liberty control in general beginning with the admonishment not to make her and 150 million gun owners felons overnight. Given that it’s well worth it to watch the entire video.

She was also featured in a NRA spotlight: Meet the Police Officer Who Told Congress She ‘Would Not Comply’ with a Gun Ban.  In which she discussed her formation of the DC Project a non-partisan group of women from all 50 states who come to Washington each year to share their expertise on firearms with lawmakers. That empowers women teaching them how to shoot and be their own first responder.

As Flores races through courts, children are still being used as tickets for entry

As Flores races through courts children are still being used as tickets for entry

The Flores Agreement was intended to protect migrant children from long incarcerations at the border and to ensure their well-being while in custody. But in recent months, it has been used as a loophole by migrants to allow them to be released to the interior instead of waiting in detention for their asylum hearings. This is why the administration made changes to Flores, but a federal judge blocked the rules change, prompting an acceleration of the case up through the court system.

Meanwhile, children are being used by migrants to get them out of detention quickly. This is important as the vast majority of them do not qualify under current asylum rules to remain in the country, so being released before their hearing allows them to disappear into the interior. But it isn’t just migrant families who are using the rule. Children are being “traded” and often kidnapped so false family units can enter the country and be released within the 20-day Flores time limit.

As Breitbart reported, some are even being “recycled” to be used by other migrants for entry:

Migrant Child Rescued from Fake Parents near Texas Border, Say Feds

https://www.breitbart.com/border/2019/09/30/migrant-child-rescued-from-fake-parents-near-texas-border-say-feds/Officials did not report how the foreign couple came into possession of the child. ICE officials previously told Breitbart Texas that smugglers will often rent or buy children from parents to move their human cargo more easily into the U.S. In some cases, children are kidnapped. Officials have also observed children being “recycled” through the smuggling process.

“Of all the people that smugglers exploit, children are the most vulnerable,” Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz added. “Thanks to the cooperative efforts between HSI and Border Patrol, this child was removed from a dangerous situation and properly cared for.”

Officials have not yet identified the true parents of the migrant child. Officials arrested the couple who attempted to smuggle the child pending federal charges related to smuggling and immigration violations.

Democrats often point to humanitarian reasons for their opposition to border security. They say detention is inhumane with Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats famously claiming migrant detention centers were like “concentration camps.” They say children are kept in cages and not cared for properly, prompting Homeland Security to release information that proves their efforts to improve conditions in facilities falls on Congress to increase their budgets.

As long as children can be used as a free pass for migrants to be released to the interior where they can disappear indefinitely, children will continue to be exploited. This needs a speedy resolution in the court that will allow CBP to do its job.
