Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.
Here’s another bit of interest from the Left’s now largely defunct hysterical mob action over JusticeKavanaugh: The ACLU in a rare paroxysm of honesty came out and campaigned – to the point of spending millions of dollars on multi-state ads – against Kavanaugh’s nomination solely because of Ford’s now discredited allegations against him.
But, at least this is a much needed bit of honesty on the ACLU’s part. And it is honesty, as a leaked internal memo shows clearly. The ACLU has officially abandoned their commitment to the Bill of Rights in favor of “Social Justice.” Now they’re just another hate group and, sadly, a well-funded one at that, with a large stable of lawyers to use in lawfare against the American people.
Yes! This piece of the Dems’ shithole freakshow is over. On Saturday, October 6, 2018 the Senate Republicans finally ended the Left’s passion play and confirmed Judge Brett Kavanaugh as the 114th Supreme Court Justice, thereby providing many decades during which the proper place of the Constitution can and will be restored.
The Senate Dems led their slavering horde of Feminazis and insane Millennial Snowflakes onto the tracks – or were goaded onto them by that rabid mob – but failed to derail the train coming down those tracks. Not, mind you, that they ever could have stopped Kavanaugh’s confirmation irrespective of how vicious, mendacious, and low their tactics were. The Kavanaugh train was always going to pull into the station and what delay in this our domestic enemies caused was only through the charity showed them by Senate Republicans.
Most people believe that there is no real way to fight against Facebook’s fascistic censoring of speech and opinion in its platform because Facebook aka Fascistbook is a private, corporate entity. Fortunately and surprisingly, this is NOT legally true and there is case law to back that up.
Social media allows users to gain access to information and communicate with one another on any subject that might come to mind. With one broad stroke, North Carolina bars access to what for many are the principal sources for knowing current events, checking ads for employment, speaking and listening in the modern public square, and otherwise exploring the vast realms of human thought and knowledge. Foreclosing access to social media altogether thus prevents users from engaging in the legitimate exercise of First Amendment rights.
So yes, I do believe that we, the People have to capacity to fight Fascistbook and the other dangerously biased and tyrannical social media corporations that have become entrenched in society to the point of it not being completely ridiculous to think of them as utilities.
Yes, it’s not really the high schoolers who are the children right now. It’s the infantile Democrats in Congress, e.g., Schumer, Pelosi, Sanders, and their screaming, ranting ilk who are behaving like unruly, undisciplined, and ill-behaved children who’ve been told that they can’t have the toy that they want. The high schoolers, inane, unthinking of the future, and easily manipulated as they are, are at least trying to take control of their fate and, to some extent, act to protect themselves from a perceived threat.
Of Course It’s Not Just Mindless Rage
Of course they’re quite apparent rage isn’t completely mindless. It’s more than little manufactured since they have to pander to what was once the Far Left of their Liberal and Progressive base. Hence, with the complicity of- and aid and comfort from their Lamestream Media, they will bitterly cling to any every firearm-related / firearm-involved tragedy that isn’t Black-on-Black crime…or the attempted mass assassination of Republicans.
Recently, the US Attorney General, Jeff Session declared that he and his DoJ would reverse course on the doctrine set forth under Obama and Holder and restart enforcement of federal drug laws as they pertain to marijuana. This, frankly, leaves me feeling ambivalent since one could say that I’m getting conflicting smoke signals… and neither of them have anything directly to do with either medical or recreational use of cannabis.
To me this is an example of federal overreach resulting in the Constitution being in conflict with itself at this time. I find that the entirety of the federal drug laws, except those that cover importation, exportation, or interstate trafficking, to be violations of the 10th Amendment of the US Constitution. However, the Take Care Clause (Section 3, Clause 5) of Article II of the Constitution requires that the Executive shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed. In other words, the Constitution requires the Executive branch to enforce the laws set forth by the Legislative branch unless and until the Judicial branch declares said laws to be null and void.
That conflict is what’s making me ambivalent about this whole thing, not my personal opinions of either medical or recreational use of marijuana.
