  • On the Right to Vote Part III

    Article V Blog ^ | September 18th 2017 | Rodney Dodsworth
    Subtitle: The Wisdom of the 14th Amendment. After a quick look at Section 1, this squib takes a closer read of Sections 2 & 3 of the 14th Amendment. Weíll find that, as opposed to recent times, Congress expected itself, rather than federal courts, to sort out and deal with difficult issues. In the latter 1860s that meant incorporating former slaves into the civil society. In the hands of the far Left, an amendment designed to deal with post-Civil War realities is the modern Progressiveís favorite means to social justice. From a hopeless mash of conflicting decisions, Scotus determined, for...

    The†Fourteenth Amendment, which was adopted in 1868,†declares that no state shall ďdeprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.Ē A debate that has been raging in courtrooms for years is whether the ďlifeĒ part includes unborn persons. Harvard†Law student Joshua Craddock did some constitutional soul searching to answer that question in a new†report for the Harvard Law Journal, concluding that unborn babies do fall under the Fourteenth Amendmentís protections. One might look to dictionaries of legal and common usage, the context...
  • The Trial of Susan B. Anthony For Illegal Voting (Great Story: Tea Party Like!)

    Jurist Law @ Pitt ^ | February 2001 | Douglas Linder
    The Anthony trial of 1873 helped answer the important question of whether women as "citizens" under the recently adopted Fourteenth Amendment were entitled, as one of the "privileges and immunities" that came with citizenship, to vote. The answer given by prim and conservative Justice Ward Hunt will surprise few, but the trial also shows Hunt with his hands full, not quite knowing how to shut up his feisty defendant. Read now about what "Aunt Susan" described in her diary as "the greatest outrage in judicial history!"

    As the presidential election has captured the national spotlight, there are many other matters to be aware of prior to Nov. 8. Congressional elections are particularly critical this year, as a shift in the U.S. Senate is a real possibility. That would mean that Chuck Schumer would become majority leader. Retiring Harry Reid was a moderate compared to Schumer. If the House changes hands, we would see Nancy Pelosi as speaker of the House once more. Everyone should remember how well that worked. And then there are state elections, including five ballot measures dealing with firearm laws in Washington, Colorado,...
  • Director Affleck Casts Literal Bible Believers as 'Neanderthals'

    As NewsBuster Geoffrey Dickens has noted, Ben Affleck appeared on yesterday evening's edition of Hardball. And while it's true that the actor/director/Dem activist offered a generally innocuous analysis, he did manage to engage in a bit of religious bigotry. Affleck's foul foray arose in the course of his discussion of the way the various Republican candidates have dealt with the issue of evolution and creationism. Talk turned to the former governor of Arkansas. BEN AFFLECK: I think Huckabee actually framed his position in a much less dramatic way than had been made out. Which was he said it could...

    Compleat Advocate ^ | July 7, 2016 | Steve Schulin, America's Party
    ... Our Constitution specifies that no person shall be deprived of their life without due process. So the bill's provisions allowing abortions to be performed without any due process is on its face unconstitutional. The Supreme Court, in Roe opinion, opined that the unborn child is not a person. That's a legal fiction. When Roe opinion was written, it was commonly thought that before you or I became human, we went through various stages of biological development. "Ontogeny recapitulates Phylogeny" was the popular phrase taught to schoolchildren as scientific fact -- that we each start as a tadpole-like creature and...

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas urged college graduates who seek to "preserve liberty" to do so by fulfilling the duties of their daily vocations rather than attempting to achieve sweeping political goals. "At the risk of understating what is necessary to preserve liberty in our form of government, I think more and more that it depends on good citizens, discharging their daily duties in their daily obligations," Thomas said Saturday during a commencement address at Hillsdale College, a small liberal arts college in Michigan.
  • 7 FAM 1130 ACQUISITION OF U.S. CITIZENSHIP BY BIRTH ABROAD TO U.S. CITIZEN PARENT (Scrubbing of 7

    Today I discovered that the reason I could not find a section of the Nationalization Statues is because the section had been scrubbed. This is not an accident. The section removed had confirmed that the interpretation of the State Department based on the Constitution and relevant case law was that Naturalization did not convey natural born status for Constitutional purposes. The Foreign Affairs Manual (FAM) and associated Handbooks (FAHs) are a single, comprehensive, and authoritative source for the Department's organization structures, policies, and procedures that govern the operations of the State Department, the Foreign Service and, when applicable, other federal...

    Demonstrating the broad appeal of his in-depth immigration plan released Sunday, Trumpís proposal has won the accolades of one of the nationís leading experts on the H-1B visas program. The H-1B is a visa designed to provided corporations with cheaper and less experienced guest workers to fill technology jobs. Norm Matloff, a professor at UC Davis, has written extensively about H-1B visa abuses, and his work is widely cited in the H-1B reform community. Matloff, a self-described Democrat and ďlongtime admirer of Sen. Bernie Sanders, gave Donald Trumpís H-1B policy ďan A+Ē and was pleased that the Republican frontrunner was...

    ination to the Supreme Court made by President Barack Obama, the White House is surely gearing up for a strategic nomination and epic battle for the future of the highest court in the country. Obama needs to move forward quickly with a transformative nominee who stands a chance of success on Capitol Hill. Diane Humetewa, U.S. District Judge for the District of Arizona is perhaps the most likely person to advance through Senate confirmation during Obama's final year in office. Nominating her would transform the federal judiciary, bring Native Americans into the highest echelons of political society, and actually stand...

    "...Some of the last fireworks of the night came when Cruz attacked Trump's supposedly "very, very liberal" policies."Flexibility is a good thing, but you shouldn't be flexible on core principles," Cruz said. "I like Donald. He is an amazing entertainer. But his policies for most of his life..have been very, very liberal."Cruz continued:For most of his life, he has described himself as very pro-choice and as a supporter of partial-birth abortion. Right now today as a candidate, he supports federal taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. I disagree with him on that."You are the single biggest liar," Trump shot back. "You...

    I first met Sen. Marco Rubio at a Republican fundraiser in 2014 where he was the featured speaker."Hi, my name is Mark Thies", I said. "I'm an Engineering Professor at Clemson.""Engineers!", he said. "Boy, we sure need a lot more of them, don't we!"I shook my head in wonder at his comment. Indeed, if you get your news from the mainstream media†you might think there's a big shortage of students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The truth, however, is quite different.†For example, Clemson's engineering enrollment has reached almost 5,300 students - an 80 percent increase since 2008!†In my...

    NumbersUSA ^ | Monday, May 2, 2011, 5:25 PM EDT | Roy Beck
    The biggest problem with Rep. Paul's (R-Texas) latest comments on immigration is that they are NOT just some ad hoc thoughts tossed off carelessly at some speaking event. These are engraved in a brand new book. Until the release of the book, Liberty Defined, Dr. Paul had a mixed record in Congress and the fact that he had taken the NumbersUSA "No Amnesty" pledge at the end of his Presidential campaign in 2008. That had earned him a C-minus on our 2012 Presidential Hopefuls Immigration Stances Report Card. Not impressive, but the third best (behind Rep. Bachman with a B-minus...

    Pointing to the effects of "horrible" super-PACs, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Sunday said America needs to come up with a solution to keep big money out of politics. "Well, I think you need it, because I think PACs are a horrible thing," Trump said on CNN's "State of the Union" when asked if he would pursue campaign finance reform. The billionaire businessman, who said he is self-financing his campaign, said the wall separating super-PACs and candidates running for public office is illusory. "First of all, everyone's dealing with their PAC. You know, it's supposed to be like this...
  • The Ultimate Goal of the Antigun Movement

    The ultimate goal of the antigun movement is this: the universal elimination of civilian firearms’ ownership and possession. This is true and incontrovertible. Everything the antigun movement does is directed to the attainment of that goal. Nothing the antigun movement does diverges from the path to that goal. When asked to admit the truth of the assertion, the antigun movement, and its sounding board, the mainstream corporate media, will deny it, curtly and vehemently. But, the antigun movement’s actions belie its blunt denial. Realization of the movement’s goal amounts to de facto repeal of the fundamental right of the people...

    San Francisco police officers are being asked to combat racism in the ranks and take a pledge to turn in colleagues displaying intolerant behavior, such as slurs and jokes targeting people of color, gays and women. The pledge is part of a broader public relations campaign by the embattled police department to repair frayed relations with minority neighborhoods and community activists. The campaign comes amid growing tensions between police and black communities that are shaking up departments across the country and have led to the dismissal of top brass in some cities, including Chicago. Politically progressive San Francisco is not...

    "It's boring." Actress and star of the blockbuster Twilight movie series Kristin Stewart spoke with Variety magazine about the supposed gender gap in Hollywood's paycheck. "Instead of sitting around and complaining about that, do something," Stewart said. "Go write something, go do something." "And that's easy to say," she continued. "Like, ****, it's hard to get movies made. It's a huge luxury. Who gets to just make movies? But that subject is just so prevalently everywhere right now, and it's boring." "Guys make more money because their movies make more money," she added. "Let's start making more movies. It makes...

    We, the grassroots activists of the National Black Republican Association, are pleased to announce our endorsement of Donald J. Trump for President of the United States of America. As citizens who happen to be black, we support Mr. Trump because he shares our values. We, like Mr. Trump, are fiscally conservative, steadfastly pro-life and believers in a small government that fosters freedom for individuals and businesses, so they can grow and become prosperous. We are deeply concerned about illegal immigration, a major cause of high black unemployment, especially among black youth. Black Americans across America are beginning to wake up...
