  • Their Rules: Claire McCaskill Seeks To Harm Indian Tribes

    Monday was Columbus Day, or as liberals have taken to calling, “Indigenous People’s Day.” Democrats love sowing division, blaming Europeans for all of the world’s ills, and elevating the status of Native Americans. Well, they usually do. When it’s a choice between a long-dead Italian guy and American Indians, the choice is easy. When the choice is between their own reelection and anything, everything else loses to self-preservation.Such is the case with Missouri Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill.One of my first jobs in Washington was as a health policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation. While it may not sound exciting, it...
  • The 11th Amendment: Correcting the Supreme Court in action

    02/07/2015 5:25:48 AM PST · by cotton1706 · 28 replies ^ | 2/7/15 | NCC Staff
    The Constitution’s first amendment after the Bill of Rights represented the first use of congressional power to contradict a Supreme Court decision. The case of Chisholm v. Georgia in 1793 was the first significant decision handed down by the Court, and it was so controversial that lawmakers moved quickly to nullify its findings. The controversy had its roots in the Revolutionary War. In 1777, the Executive Council of Georgia authorized the purchase of needed supplies from a South Carolina businessman. After receiving the supplies, Georgia didn’t pay as promised. After the merchant’s death, the executor of his estate, Alexander Chisholm,...

    A three-legged stool can always stand without wobbling – a solid foundation for good or evil. Addressing the 14th, 16th and 17th Amendments. The Articles (7) and their clauses, the Bill of Rights (Amendments 1-10) are original to the Founders, Framers, and Ratifiers. The 11th and 12th Amendments serve to States’ protection. The 13th freed the slaves. The 14th Amendment – This was the first of three Amendments that created the “progressive” three legged stool. The 14th was a mandatory ratification, a required condition before states were allowed reunification after the Civil War. Congress deliberately established federal supremacy. The 14th,...

    Jacques Belleaud at MyFoxDC reports: The Mexican government has urged a U.S. court to stop Arizona from enforcing a minor section of the state’s 2010 immigration law that prohibits the harboring of illegal immigrants. Lawyers representing Mexico asked the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in a filing Wednesday to uphold a lower-court ruling that blocked police from enforcing the ban. Mexico argued the ban harms diplomatic relations between the United States, undermines the U.S.’s ability to speak to a foreign country with one voice and encourages the marginalization of Mexicans and people who appear to be from Latin America. “Mexico...

    As with the constitutional struggle that was stirred up by the passage of ObamaCare, the President’s latest pet proposal is brightening the battle lines between friends of federal power and those who advocate the protection of the sovereignty of states. The American Jobs Act contains several key provisions that apparently push the boundary between state and federal power back, expanding Washington’s sphere of authority.

    Several Oklahoma legislators are concerned that individuals and organizations are quietly working on plans to create a privately-operated tollway in Oklahoma. Many referred to Spain-based Cintra, which has been involved in the development of a proposed Trans-Texas Corridor. Cintra also took over the operation of the Indiana East-West Toll Road from the Indiana Department of Transportation in 2006. Oklahoma State Sen. Randy Brogdon and state representatives Eric Proctor, Richard Morrisette, Scott Inman and Charles Key all expressed concern that efforts to open up Oklahoma to a privately operated tollway system were being kept out of the view of the general...

Breyer shifted this week from outspoken dissenter to majority voter on a key federalism and states' rights issue, but the Supreme Court's most junior justice has not switched sides.</p> <p>One year after vowing to fight expansion of 11th Amendment immunity, Justice Breyer found himself instead in the majority of a 6-3 ruling going the other way to pierce the states' constitutional immunity from private lawsuits.</p>
