Dianne Feinstein Amy Coney Barrett
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. Catholic leaders and university presidents objected to Feinstein's line of questioning in 2017 for one of President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees, arguing the focus on her faith is misplaced and runs counter to the Constitution’s prohibition on religious tests for political office. The outcry stems from the questioning of Amy Coney Barrett, a Notre Dame law professor tapped to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Democrats focused on whether her personal views would override her legal judgment, especially with respect to the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion. Feinstein told Barrett that dogma and law are two different things and she was concerned “that the dogma lives loudly within you.” (AP Photo/Cliff Owen, File)

An attack on our Constitution is an attack on our constitutional republic itself. It has become evident that non-stop Democrat Party attacks on the Second Amendment and gun rights are part of a larger disrespect for the Constitution as a whole. Yet is it merely a symptom, or a disease itself?

The Second Amendment is both the proverbial ‘canary in the coal mine’ and the last gatekeeper of freedom. It’s time that we start connecting the dots.

Democrats have a pattern and practice of attacking the reality of our Constitution, the bulwark of our Republic. Although they attack the Second Amendment with the most vigor, they loathe a litany of provisions found in the Constitution.

With the latest round of liberal tantrums about President Trump exercising his constitutional authority by nominating another Supreme Court justice for the vacancy left at the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we find them bucking, yet again, clear and concise language set forth in our most precious governing document. Article II, Section 2, clearly sets forth that the President has the power to nominate Supreme Court justices with the advice and consent of the Senate.

Bickering over whether or not the President has the power to nominate a Supreme Court justice in an election year is only one instance in a larger pattern of lawmakers ignoring and flouting the clear language of Constitution.

Additionally, Democrats dislike the “no religious test clause.” It is made clear that religion may not be considered for judicial officers. The “No Religious Test Clause” within Article VI, Clause 3 establishes that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification of any office or public trust under the United States.” In 2017, during Circuit Court nomination hearings, Senator Diane Feinstein of California infamously said to Judge Amy Coney Barrett that “The dogma lives loudly within you” regarding her Catholic faith.

Judge Barrett is considered a leading contender for the now vacant Court seat.

Make no mistake, Senator Feinstein is a dyed-in-the-wool gun-grabber. She is coming for you, Mr. & Mrs. America and she wants your guns.

When Democrats don’t get their way, their first impulse is always to change the rules of the game. That’s why they’ve targeted other parts of the Constitution as well. They’ve called for the elimination of the Electoral College. Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution establishes that the Electoral College is the formal body that elects our President and Vice President.

Do you see a pattern here? Connecting the dots? Democrat lawmakers have a nasty habit of pretending that our Constitution, which is a veritable instruction manual on powers enumerated and things the government is restrained from doing, doesn’t exist…at least when its provisions prevent them from maintaining their political power.

It has now become part of the Democrat Party platform to not only ignore the mandatory language (shall) of the Second Amendment, but to outright attack individual gun ownership. As we already know, Joe Biden has stated that Beto O’Rourke will be his gun confiscation czar. They are coming for our modern sporting rifles. “Shall not be infringed” could have been written by the Founders as “may be infringed under certain circumstances,” but it wasn’t. End of discussion.

You need to connect these clearly visible dots. An attack on our Constitution is an attack on our constitutional republic itself.  The Second Amendment ensures that the power remains in the hands of The People. We are ‘The People’ and we must recognize what is now afoot and what is at stake.

  1. Democrats (communist party USA) do not consider the Constitution of the United States to be the law of the land. They do intend to overthrow the constitution and establish their socialist (marxist) utopia. They are up front about calling for violent revolution which they intend to win.

    They have attacked and will continue to attack every facet of our constitutional republic until they succeed.

    They have been working for the last 80 years and have achieved most of their goals. They think now is the time for the final step, take full control of the government.

    If they succeed in November the next four year will be an endless succession of laws to make sure conservatives never control congress or the presidency again. They have publicized some of their steps and, if allowed, will keep them in control for generations.

    Get everyone out to vote this November.

    Failing that……Be Prepared !!!

    • “If they succeed in November the next four year will be an endless succession of laws to make sure conservatives never control congress or the presidency again.”

      What Leftists fail to understand is, that’s very last thing they want to do.

      If it gets to that point, the clock starts ticking on events that have very real consequences.

      We know this, because US history has gone through this kind of thing before.

      Example – “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

      Exhibit A – The naked contempt the political left has for the opinions of fully one-half of this once-united nation.

      “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

      That right there, in stark black-and-white text, is the ‘Bail Out’ option the founders created for us if things got out-of-hand and a government turned to naked tyranny.

      At that point, one of two things will happen – This nation splits peacefully, or not so peacefully. We’re reasonable people, we can come to an arrangement, but it will be on our terms, not theirs.

      Choose wisely, Leftists… 🙂

      • There will be no peaceful split. The left knows that it will fail as a stand alone nation because you need conservative businesses and workers to keep your economy perking. Can you imagine a nation of miner49ers trying to succeed? It will make venezuela look prosperous.

        And this is not a North/South thing. We’re intermixed. No, the left has already pushed this to open war. Look at Portland and Kenosha.

        • Certainly not peaceful in the beginning, jwm, but not so sure whether we’ll end up balkanized or continue heading straight to a crisis of secession. IMHO, the former is more probable, with increasing violence between factions.

        • Or, just like the confederacy, the left is defeated openly and rule of law is restored nation wide. When its over we can establish reservations on Federal land in places like Nevada for all those who identify as leftist/socialist/communist and the rest of us can go on about our lives.

        • If the left wins they will destroy businesses with socialist policies. Nothing will keep the economy perking with leftists in power. The US will turn into Venezuela.

  2. The answer is simple… While America is on the subject of Racism hold the democRat Party liable for their despicable long history of race based atrocities. Atrocities that make today’s marching drama queens look like they are having a fit over spilled milk. And worse the drama queens belong to the party of their slave masters. Talk about politically inept history illiterates being used as useful idiots for the plantation…it’s pathetic.

  3. The Senate can establish criteria for accepting a nomination, not confirming, but accepting. Senate rules can be written that any nominee that does not check-off certain items of qualification, will be ignored, no hearings or vote taken. The constitution only states that the Senate will advise and consent. So….”This nominee does not meet our criteria for a serious candidate, and is thus disposed of as follows: Advice – Provide another nominee; Consent – no.” Constitutional obligation satisfied.

    Or the Senate could create a rule that all nominees will have an up/down vote within 72hrs of notice from the president; no debate allowed. Or…establish a rule that floor vote will be held within two hours of notice from the president. If the nomination is received any time the Senate is not in session (as determined by the Majority Leader), the nomination is rejected without further consideration.

    Nothing in the constitution declares that a single political party cannot establish a permanent form of government, only that it be republican. Thus, one political entity, or another, can establish itself forever as the ruling, only political party…all done by voting (whatever that means).

    • Not to get real deep on this overall post because I cannot be bothered but…

      “If the nomination is received any time the Senate is not in session (as determined by the Majority Leader), the nomination is rejected without further consideration.”

      “The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.” US Constitution. Art II, Sec 2, Cl 3.

      • “The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.” US Constitution. Art II, Sec 2, Cl 3.”

        Precisely. The Senate rules over nominations, regardless of presidential wishes. How difficult would it be for the Senate to declare themselves not in session, have the president fill an SC vacancy one day, and the Senate back in session the next day, ending the presidential appointment?

        Art II, Sec 2, Cl 3 is not an end around, but a stopgap mesaure, the gap determined by the Senate.

        • Well they’d have to, at least, declare themselves in session and then out of session again because the appointment runs until the end of the next session.

          I’d have to consult the rules for the Senate on how quickly they could do that. I’m sure it’s possible but it would take some maneuvering for sure. This requires a motion for adjournment sine die which I think is a form of “adjourn for more than 3 days”. That requires a concurrent motion with the House (that is, approval of the House and the Senate).

          • “I’d have to consult the rules for the Senate…”

            Keep in mind the proposition is that the Senate has a super-majority, or better. That the rules of the Senate will be changed to ensure perpetual rule by a single party. That the ruling party is leftist, authoritarian. Much mischief to be made.

  4. “Trump Selects Amy Coney Barrett to Fill Ginsburg’s Seat on the Supreme Court”

    “Mr. Trump plans to announce on Saturday that she is his choice, according to six people close to the process who asked not to be identified disclosing the decision in advance.

    As they often do, aides cautioned that Mr. Trump sometimes upends his own plans. But he is not known to have interviewed any other candidates and came away from two days of meetings with Judge Barrett this week impressed with a jurist he was told would be a female Antonin Scalia, referring to the justice she once clerked for.”


      • It’s OK Durrrr, we all know you toss more salads that Geoff does. Now go back to California where you can toss the salads of children 10 years younger than you, so about 5.

    • “Liberals hate the Constitution because it tells them what they CANNOT DO to us.”

      As if, in the end, that matters.

    • Shall not, in point of fact.

      They can – and do – still try, and will if they can, desecrate the concept of free speech, prohibit bearing and owning arms, make all subject to random search and seizures etc.

  5. It’s Amy Coney Barrett.

    Abortion and 2nd Amendment is what will be on Democrats burned.

    I heard Balsey Ford remembers after all it was Amy Coney Barrett who pusher down on the bed and put her junk if her face.

  6. I found it insane that Jewish Senators like Feinstein and Schumer were attacking Barrett because of her Catholic beliefs while kissing Omar’s, Tlaib’s and Obama’s asses for their Muslim beliefs. Those people are just nucking futs.

    • They’re not crazy. It’s called “appeasement” and in this case it has a logic to it. The logic is wrong because parasites don’t work that way but the logic is still there.

      TPTB believe they can’t fold the Progressives into the Democratic Party and thereby increase the Party’s power.

      Some of them haven’t quite figured out the truth yet; That Progressives have as much interest in being “part” of the Party as a tapeworm or blood fluke has in being “friends” with its host.

    • There’s Jewish by bloodline, Jewish by nationality, Jewish by faith, and Jewish by virtue signaling. Not the same, and some people like to switch back and forth depending upon which way the political winds are blowing.

    • “I found it insane that Jewish Senators like Feinstein and Schumer were attacking Barrett because of her Catholic beliefs while kissing Omar’s, Tlaib’s and Obama’s asses for their Muslim beliefs. Those people are just nucking futs.”

      Feinstein and Schumer care nothing but for power. If they have to make alliances with those that would gladly, and literally, kill them, then they will.

      • Of course he is – just ask Reggie Love.

        BTW, how does your “Lightworker’s” d*** taste????

        Obama was/is a talentless clown, and intellectual lightweight, IF he actually graduated from college or law school, we have NO idea what his grades were. Oh, yeah, and by the way, he NEVER practiced as an actual lawyer in his life (and, no, he WASN’T a Constitutional law professor).

        We know you Lefty soibois get all wet in the panties over the very THOUGHT of your Obamessiah, but, please, have a little consideration for the rest of us. Your drooling and panting gets annoying – if I acted like that about some woman, I’d be deemed a “sexual predator”. Just get over it; he’s not going to let you suck his d*** – he has Reggie for that. He’s just not that in to you.

  7. Being from Calif, She is a Traitor to the American People and to the citizens of Calif. Hope she croaks with severe rectal explosion painfully. The US doesn’t need a president that tries to destroy our rights with a smile. Everyone pumping for Biden are blind fools looking at what’s going on.

  8. Am I the only one around here who already knew everything in the original Thacker article?

    Really- was any of this new to anyone here?

    Gee, the democrats in office, nearly to a person, are anti-gun, anti-Constitution, pro death, view themselves as royal elites who are better than we are regardless of our degrees, accomplishments and experience, and know more about what’s best for us than we do…

    Really, seriously, is this new to anyone here?

    • “Really, seriously, is this new to anyone here?”

      The readership is not static. There are always “first timers” dialing in.

    • We have new gun owners in record numbers. Many of them have voted straight Dem in the past. Do not diminish the value of sharing our 2A knowledge with them. Heck, let’s spoon feed it. Even in deeply blue states like NJ, there are record numbers of gun permitting applications. If everyone knew this stuff, we wouldn’t be on the precipice as we are …

  9. Everyday I just wish the Guy that had shot Milk down the hallway from her had saved one bullet for her and cut off her mess from the start!

  10. It is proven that NRA AAA rated political picks turn against gun rights.
    It is proven the Supreme Court Justices who were previously conservative friendly have turned to vote with the communists.

    So the only valid response to preserve freedom is to resist the communist orders to surrender ones guns, ammunition, magazines and accessories. Either we stand together against a communist order or we fall as its victims. Its an easy choice to resist. The consequences may be fatal. But so is old age. If we fail to resist and choose surrender then its over. You will die under communism. The colonists had the faith and the strength to resist the Kings tyranny. Do you have the faith and strength resist the communists tyranny ?

  11. “An attack on our Constitution is an attack on our constitutional republic itself.”

    Trump has been attacking our election system since he first announced his candidacy. He is now actively trying to weaken the American People’s faith in elections, setting the stage to either give himself an excuse for losing in November or to challenge any result he does not like.

    The thing is, if Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed before the election then that is one less reason to support Trump. With a solid pro-Second Amendment Supreme Court majority, what need have we to continue with that only slightly useful idiot in the White House?

    Absolutely no use at all. We can safely retire his traitorous ass to his golf game, provided Trump doesn’t have yet another stroke, and get back to business as usual.

    The Supreme Court is about to be on our side no matter how the election plays out.

    Trump is a Treasonous Sack Of Foreign Enemy Butt Kissing Shit

    Biden is just another politician.

    Easy choice there.

    • Your twisted, and maybe even insane, logic is why we need Trump. And with people like you and miner49er reminding us daily how badly we need Trump you are actually doing us some good. Keep it up.

      I’ll thank you when Trump wins in November.

    • See the comment above: “Supreme Court Justices who were previously conservative friendly have turned to vote with the communists.” We need a Trump pick to replace Breyer as insurance in case another justice goes the way of Roberts.

      You keep throwing around the words “traitor” and “corruption” in a way that makes me think you must have Rip Van Winkled your way through not only the entire Obama administration, but also the Democrat/media shenanigans of the past 4 years. Unless “traitor” is simply a synonym for “loudmouthed, disagreeable politician,” in which case Trump is merely one more widget in an overflowing government surplus bin.

    • You are correct, enuf. And many people here know you’re correct even if they can’t being themselves to admit it.

      Truth is, there is a large but mostly silent group of Republicans in America (I’m one of them) who won’t be voting for Trump again. We will make our voices heard on Election Day. And when we do, I think Trumps sycophant supporters are going to be genuinely surprised that – no – most Americans do NOT like the direction in which America is trending on his watch.

      Sorry Trumpbots, but the bill for your Faustian bargain is about to come due.

      • “Where this country is going” is entirely manufactured by your Murdercrat friends. No one believes for a second that you voted for Trump.

        • So Tim, the additional $7 Trillion of debt under the Trump Administration is just a figment of my imagination? The riots we see aren’t actually happening, and are just an invented media narrative? Many of Trump’s OWN former cabinet members saying “This guy has no idea what he’s doing” didn’t actually happen? Trump being named as “Individual #1” (an unindicted co-conspirator) in the Cohen trial also didn’t happen? You’re saying it’s a media fiction that Trump paid hush money to a porn star while cheating on his third wife (a.k.a. “Family values”)? Are you claiming Trump’s foundation WASN’T shut down in 2017 for what a judge called “numerous and serious illegalities”?

          Reality is a funny thing, Tim: because no natter how much you ignore or deny it, it doesn’t cease being reality.

          Thankfully, the Trump nightmare will be over in just a few weeks. He’s substantially trailing in all the polls and the betting markets. And it’s looking increasingly likely that he’s going to take the Senate down with him. Because that’s what happen when you enter into Faustian bargains. They never end like you had hoped they would.

        • You’re forgetting that until Trump came along every single thing you’ve mentioned was just business as usual in Washington DC. They’re ALL rats, Doug. Trump’s sins aren’t unusual in any way.

          But suddenly *now* we’re all supposed to care?

          The media’s sudden obsession with honesty and good character is a sham. A cynical ploy to manipulate Republican voters into virtue-signaling their way into permanent irrelevance. Your elevated principles do you no good when you lose. The winners make the rules — and make no mistake, the “progressive” Democrats pulling Biden’s strings intend to kill your principles dead.

      • Doug
        Your an a$$. Trump is no worse than any politician and in some ways better. The blm antifa riots are not his doing they are anti Trump leftists in leftist cities so please STFU

    • Biden/Harris and the rest of their communist party have promised to pack the court, so your argument fails.

    • Keep in mind enuf’s understanding of the second amendment and ethical civic behavior when he insulted Kyle Rittenhouse.

      “Anybody here recall that “A well regulated militia…” part of it? You know that refers to training as a group, not running around unsupported with no earthly idea what in the hell you are doing there!

      He defended himself but he should have been home with his momma, not pretending to be all grown up. Which he is clearly not.”


  12. We’re not talking about same democrats that attacked a U military installation, rebelled against their country, formed a home grown terrorist organization and suppressed the rights of citizens?

    Just checking.

    • “TERM LIMITS ,,,There’s your answer …”

      Other than a change of faces, what are you expecting term limits to actually accomplish?

      • There are term limits in place for both the Senate and the HOR. They occur every election cycle. It’s the voters who refuse to implement them.

      • A change of faces would be a worthwhile accomplishment in itself. Aren’t you just a little bit tired of looking at the desiccated visages of Pelosi, Feinstein, and McConnell after all these years?

        • “Aren’t you just a little bit tired of looking at the desiccated visages of Pelosi, Feinstein, and McConnell after all these years?”

          Leftists all look alike. I don’t see individuals, is see evil united.

  13. “You need to connect these clearly visible dots. An attack on our Constitution is an attack on our constitutional republic itself”

    Couldn’t agree more!!!

    And that is precisely why I am voting for Biden! To get that Traitorous pile of human excrement out of my White House!

    Win or lose it is Trump who has proven time and again to be a threat, it is Trump who is a real and present danger to the Constitution and to our Republic.

    Trump is a Traitor.

    Biden is merely a politician.

    Easy choice.

      • Do you really not remember when Trump crapped on the 5th Amendment by saying he wanted to take the guns first, engage in due process second??? And what do you make of Trump recently saying that if he loses the election, he won’t commit to peacefully transferring power? Especially in the context of Trump already claiming (falsely) that it simply isn’t possible for him to legitimately lose the election!

        I mean, that is SERIOUSLY f’d up! That is some banana republic crap right there! Donald Trump would be HAPPY to piss all over the Constitution just as long as doing so served his own political purposes. And that’s because he has an authoritarian streak in him. (The guy DOES love dictators and America’s enemies like Putin, Kim Jong Un, MBS, etc.)

        I swear, you Trump supporters had better wake the F up before it’s too late. You have been conned. Big time. Trump knows that to get away with anything, all he has to do is say whatever he knows you want to hear. Doesn’t matter whether he actually believes it or not. He knows his supporters are like cult members, never willing to acknowledge that the cult leader is, himself, a complete and total charlatan.

        I could give you many more examples of Trump violating the Constitution, but you would probably just sit there and deny each and every example. Because that’s what Trump has trained you to do. Deny, deflect, deny, deflect, deny, deflect.

        Thankfully, Trump WILL lose the election fair and square because too many Americans are sick of his crap. I have never in my life voted for a Democrat, but I simply cannot in good conscience vote for Trump again. I love America too much to allow human scum like Trump to further damage this country.

        • “…..Do you really not remember when Trump crapped on the 5th Amendment by saying he wanted to take the guns first, engage in due process second???..”

          Please show me the executive order that mandates this. Pointing to various States Red Flag laws do not count btw.

        • Military mail in ballots have already been ditched thanks to the treasonous actions of you never Trumpers. It is not treason for Trump to use Federal law enforcement and the military to thwart a coup attempt against the US .gov. It’s sort of his duty and obligation to do so.

          You scum are going to force decent Americans to have to get undecent to save our country. Remember this doug. You’re masters and handlers are wealthy and connected. They will bail and live soft, comfortable lives in other countries when they fail. You and guys like you will be left to face the wrath of a betrayed country.

          Your future is shit.

        • “And what do you make of Trump recently saying that if he loses the election, he won’t commit to peacefully transferring power?“

          You’ve swallowed the MSM bait. This is a straw man argument. You left out the “free and fair election” language that he includes in his statements. If truckloads of ballots materialize Thanksgiving week and flip enough states to change the result of the November 3 election, he oughta contest it. Especially if the names on those late ballots are mostly variations of some 37 common names, all inked with pens left over from the Dem’s failed convention. No one can honestly dispute that’s what they are setting up by mass mailing millions of ballots. If they don’t fit within the stats from those popular baby names books from decades past, better count the silverware…

        • Was obama signing off on a spying campaign on a then political rival then elected president followed by plans to try and falsely trigger the 25th amendment a peaceful transition of power?
          You and enuf should go count your 30 pieces of silver like good little lap dogs.

  14. If you really want to get your blood pressure up, learn about the National Popular Vote Compact, another loathesome end run around the Constitution.

    • “…learn about the National Popular Vote Compact, another loathesome end run around the Constitution.”

      An end around likely to succeed. Down ballot votes are the most critical.

  15. These types of articles are funny because they accuse the “other side” of doing exactly the same thing THEIR side does on a regular basis.

    Maybe some of you have already forgotten that Trump banned bumpstocks via Executive Order? Be honest: how many of you would have been completely OK with that if a Democratic President had done the exact same thing? I’m guessing none of you. Yet Trump does this and many of you either try to rationalize it away, or just forget it happened. You are, basically, being unprincipled about the matter.

    And remember when Trump said he wanted to “Take the guns first, have due process second”? Of course you all remember this. Many of you just like to conveniently forget about it because…”My team, right or wrong!” I mean, can you imagine how most of you would have reacted if a Democratic President had said the exact same thing? You would have been screaming bloody murder, and you would have accused him of being nothing short of a traitor to the Constitution! And you KNOW I’m right about this, even if many of you won’t be willing to admit it.

    Sorry, but until you’re willing to hold Republicans to the same standards you hold Democrats, it will remain difficult to take you seriously. Over the last 4 years I have seen far too much hypocrisy and duplicity from people who call themselves “conservatives”.

    Basically, but before you start complaining about how awful and unprincipled the Democrats are…you really should take a long, deep look in the mirror.

    • “….Maybe some of you have already forgotten that Trump banned bumpstocks via Executive Order? …

      Never Happened. Show the executive order signed by President Trump.

      You must be thinking of acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker.

      Words have a meaning and clouding them makes you inaccurate.

      Your mind has been poisoned by the hate ‘Never Trumpers have.

    • Agree. Any politician that deviates one millimeter from my principles should be abandoned, disrespected, scourged. Better that a person who violates all my principles be elected in order that I might maintain my purity of principle.

      Yeah, right.

  16. I aint sure who “TTAG CONTRIBUTER” Is, but this article hit the nail on the head so perfectly, the nail is counter sunk and the wood aint even dented!
    Good article sir!

  17. You know, for an article on the upcoming presidential election, you merely need to link to Biden’s official site and quote some of the more outrageous gun grabbing proposals from it.

  18. I will have to say that even though there shouldn’t be an official religious test, unofficially, I apply one because if it was say a Muslim justice pick, no way in hell would I support it because of the craziness found in that religion right now.

  19. Think of the Constitution as being like a stout chain with one end tied to a tree stump. When government officials, whether elected or appointed, behave like car chasing dogs, the Constitution is there to jerk them up short. At least, that’s the way it’s supposed to work but it depends on a Supreme Court with the courage to stand up to the government and a populace willing to vote out of office any politician who dares to subvert the Constitution. The Democrats’ attitude is that government should be free to do anything it can talk the voters into.

    • “…it depends on a Supreme Court with the courage to stand up to the government…”

      The SC is government.

  20. I’m an ardent republican simply because of their overall stance on gun rights. Frankly, I don’t give a crap about tax breaks, government handouts, and abortion rights. I voted democrat and was raised accordingly until they took a hard line stance on gun rights. I was not raised in a gun friendly household by any means. When I went to college, I chose to buy a shitty Ruger LC9S and didn’t have much of an opinion one way or the other. I sold that gun to buy a Glock and eventually an AR15.

    With ALL of that said, I don’t see the issue with eliminating the electoral college. Obviously, Trump lost the popular vote but still won the electoral college vote. This is a matter of fact that is not up for dispute. Regardless of that outcome and its reverberations over the past four years, I don’t see how the citizens of America not getting their wish is an issue in a democracy. Obviously, I see how in the previous election it would have led to a Clinton presidency but I am curious more abstractly beyond this one election. We are a democracy, if the people want someone to be their elected official, how can we oppose that even if it is against our personal views and beliefs? What is the objection???

    • ” We are a democracy, if the people want someone to be their elected official, how can we oppose that even if it is against our personal views and beliefs? What is the objection???

      1. No, we are not a democracy; never have been
      2. A “democracy” is mob rule, which is precisely why the founders rejected the formulation
      3. A state is a state, and the founders determined that all states were equal in rights and privileges
      3a. The members of the House of Representatives are elected by the public, and are the direct access of voters in their districts (localities) to their national government
      3b. The States (big “S” in the time of the founding), represented by the governors, reflected the larger than district interests of their citizens through appointments of members of the Senate
      3c. The nation as a whole, a combination of the Representatives of the House, and all the Senators elect the President of the United States (a bit of a quirk here, although the electors of the Electoral College are equal in number to the combined number of Representatives and Senators, they were designed to not be the same individuals as the actual Representatives and Senators)
      3d. The entire structure was designed to fight off the worst elements of direct democracy, and limiting the political power of the most populous States (who at the time were not opposed to fighting among themselves over boundaries, commerce, and political influence) from subjugating less populated States to second-class entities (Handmaidens Tale results)

      In short, your declaration/question is the answer to itself.

  21. Here’s hopin’ that Butto O’Dork will be the first through my door to take my guns. Please, Please, Oh, please!!!

    History has repeatedly demonstrated that disarming good people in the name of making bad people harmless only eventually facilitates politicians shooting their own countrymen. History…learn from it or be doomed to relive it.
    Norman Thomas, the six-time Socialist Party candidate for merican people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism,’ they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened…. I no longU.S. President, said the following in a 1944 speech: “The Aer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.” And, today, the Republican Party RINOs have adopted it as well. It is no longer a situation of “enemy in the wire”. Today….and for several decades….the enemy sits in the Command Post. America has been overrun.
    As Nikita Krushshev said in 1954, “First, we will take Eastern Europe, then the masses of Asia, then we will encircle the United States which will be the last bastion of capitalism. We will not have to attack. It will fall like an overripe fruit into our hands.” In 1960, Krushchev stated, “We cannot expect Americans to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism.”
    The old Soviet Union may have fallen; but, Krushchev’s statements are ringing true as we look at the changes that have taken place and are taking place in the US today. No longer does Socialism or Communism hold a stigma to be hidden away. Politicians are now openly campaigning on that oppressive platform and winning in some areas.
    The list of 45 communist goals contained in the ~1958 book “Naked Communist” was read into the Congressional Record (Appendix, pp. A34-A35) by U.S. Congressman Albert S. Herlong, Jr. of Florida, on January 10, 1963. This is the plan to overtake America without firing a shot. As Russian Premier Nitka Khrushchev once said, “……America will fall into our hands like over ripe fruit.”
    List is no longer a “TO DO” list, but, today, is a “DONE” checklist.
    -Take over one or both of the major political parties. DONE
    -Take over the media. DONE
    -Take over the entertainment industry, DONE
    -Take over the educational system, DONE (Lenin said, Give me the children and I will transform the country.)
    -Destroy the family unit DONE (1960’s Johnson Adm began welfare to mothers with dependent children…….with the stipulation that there be an absence of a male figure in the home. Goodbye Father; Hello Baby Daddy.)
    PLOP….like over ripe fruit.
    American has been over run. No Longer does the concept of “enemy in the wire” apply. For today, and for several decades, the enemy sits in the Command Post.
    And, that is the reason our Founding Father gave us the Second Amendment. Our Founding Fathers would already have been finished shooting a second time. They are ashamed that we have let the freedom and liberty, which they pledged all to give us, slip away without a fight. And, that is why we need, yes, need, our AR15s and high capacity magazines. It has been said that liberty is never won, only lost, at the ballot box.. Watch the current polling to see this axiom in action.
    Soap Box; Ballot Box; Cartridge Box; Pine Box…..2 lose, fail to preserve Liberty, Freedom; 2 win and preserve Liberty, Freedom. And, that sums up why our Founding Fathers gave us the Second Amendment.
    It’s the only way we are going to rid America of the present internal Socialist threat.

  22. RBG is the first woman to lie in state in DC. Disappointed RBG beat out Pelosi for the honor. But, there is still the opportunity for Pelosi to be the second to lie in state there. Hurry, Nancy, Hurry!!!!
