  • The Democratic vs. Republican Constitutions (Part I)

    06/28/2016 1:35:09 AM PDT · by Jacquerie · 2 replies ^ | June 27th 2016 | Rodney Dodsworth
    This squib began as a review of Professor Randy Barnett’s latest work, Our Republican Constitution. However, once I got into his explication of the two contradictory visions of the Constitution and what it means for Western Civilization, I decided to linger on the high points. If the Leftist avalanche of executive branch lawmaking, group rights, collegiate snowflakes, moral relativism, and horrid supreme court decisions under a Constitution designed to secure unalienable rights leaves you puzzled, then Professor Barnett’s latest book will help clarify the insanity that is modern progressivism. For those familiar with his previous works going back to The...
  • Justice Scalia on Restoring the Constitution: "I don't know that I'm optimistic."

    11/08/2012 6:36:21 PM PST · by SC_Pete · 77 replies
    ( – Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said recently that--"especially after last term"--he does not know if he is confident the Constitution can be restored to its original meaning. He likened his own efforts to do so to the character "Frodo" in the Lord of the Rings, who fights the good fight not certain he will win. While discussing his new book Reading Law at Stanford University on Oct. 19, the Hoover Institution’s Peter Robinson quoted to Scalia a passage from Scalia's book, Reading Law: "Originalism does not always provide an easy answer, or even a clear one. Originalism is...

    Judge Carter: “The writ of quo warranto must be brought within the District of Columbia because President Obama holds office within that district.” I was impressed with the integrity of Judge Carter’s ruling today. It gives me hope that the POTUS eligibility issue will eventually have its day in court on the merits. POLITICAL QUESTION DOCTRINE. Congress is the branch the Constitution empowers to remove a sitting President. The power to judicially enforce any review of POTUS eligibility is a pre-requisite to judicial involvement as the federal courts do not have the power to issue simple advisory opinions.

Once tax season hit, Ed Barnett was feeling sour. After simmering for a few weeks, he poured his frustrations into a letter to the Wichita Falls (Texas) Times Record News, which was published Feb. 6.

The Facts Roger Barnett is an Arizona rancher whose property has been violated too many times to list by illegal immigrants over the years.

    -snip- McCain made his first million the old-fashioned way: he married the daughter of a wealthy businessman. But Barack Obama, the son of an absent African father and a mother who relied on government-issued food stamps to feed her children, became a millionaire in a more modern manner – on the back of a book deal. It happened circuitously. In 1990, Obama was already enough of a celebrity – the first black president of the prestigious Harvard Law Review – for the New York publishers Simon & Schuster to offer a “six-figure contract” for a proposed autobiography.

    PHOENIX (AP) -- Human rights activists are urging the state to deny a grazing lease renewal requested by a Cochise County rancher. The rancher, Roger Barnett, has gained notoriety for detaining illegal immigrants he's found crossing his ranch near Douglas. The Border Action Network says the state should revoke the grazing lease not only for what it calls Barnett's vigilante activities, but also for allegedly confronting hunters at gunpoint. Grazing leases require leasholders to obey the law. State land officials say they're still investigating the allegations against Barnett. But they also point out that Barnett has never been convicted of...

In short, the world's current anti-Americanism is based on the notion that globalization is an American plot to enslave the planet in an economic and military empire of unprecedented historical scope, with the war being nothing more than propaganda to hide our true intentions....

Imagine a combination of Tom Friedman on globalization and Karl von Clausewitz on war and you begin to get an idea of where Barnett is coming from.

    This is a period of hyper-partisanship. It shouldn't be, because it is increasingly clear that just about everyone — Republicans and Democrats, conservatives, liberals and libertarians — misunderstood the developments taking place in the world prior to 9/11.

In March of last year, Thomas P. M. Barnett, a professor of warfare analysis, wrote that until the shock of 9/11, it was almost universally assumed that "only an advanced state can truly...

    Thomas P. M. Barnett is a professor of political science at the Naval War College who has spent much of the past 15 years roaming the halls of the Pentagon delivering a Power Point brief (the Pentagon word for briefing) on his strategic view of the world. It is based partly on joint seminars that brought together people from the war college and from Cantor Fitzgerald, the bond trading firm, which lost many of its employees on September 11. Barnett published a version of it as an article in Esquire in 2002, and last month saw the publication of his...

    I understand the deal with the devil in Najaf, and I know that temporizing situations can work in our strategic favor. But such deals only work if we spend the meantime creating the connectivity that generates strategic despair on their side, not ours. Strategic despair is when your side surveys the environment and says to itself: “No matter how hard we try, this thing is going south—there’s just too many of them and too few of us.” I worry about strategic despair a lot right now with the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq, and even more so back here at home,...

    The Pentagon's New Map It Explains Why We're Going To War, And Why We'll Keep Going To War. By Thomas P.M. Barnett, U.S. Naval War College Since the end of the cold war, the United States has been trying to come up with an operating theory of the world—and a military strategy to accompany it. Now there’s a leading contender. It involves identifying the problem parts of the world and aggressively shrinking them. Since September 11, 2001, the author, a professor of warfare analysis, has been advising the Office of the Secretary of Defense and giving this briefing continually at...

    Background --- DENVER -- University of Colorado head football coach Gary Barnett was placed on paid administrative leave Wednesday night, following his stinging criticism of an alleged rape victim and another startling revelation from a woman who said she told Barnett about her alleged sexual assault in 2001. ============================================ What is the problem here? During the Clinton years, rape was not a big deal when done by the chief law enforcement officer. Assault in the White House was not a big deal. The DemocRATS, in lieu of impeachment, wanted to censure and "move on." NOW did not stand up to...
  • Thoughts on a lawsuit: (Border Action Network supports ILLEGALS)

    Roger Barnett's activities along the border have been documented over the past few years not only in our pages, but on the nation's air waves and in print. Barnett has taken it upon himself to try to slow the stampede of illegal immigrants who tramp across his land abutting the Mexico border. The high-profile effort includes the men in his group being armed and detaining the illegal immigrants until U.S. Border Patrol officials arrive. While no saint, Barnett certainly has the right to protect his property and we have supported him in editorials in the past. We have, however, pointed...

    Michelle Malkin (archive)(printer-friendly version)September 27, 2002Remembering an American insurrection Forty years ago this month, a lone black man named James Meredith faced off against an angry mob of thousands of white segregationists on the campus of the University of Mississippi. After a violent clash that left two people dead, 48 American soldiers injured, and 30 U.S. Marshals with gunshot wounds, a dignified Meredith sat in the registrar's office with stunned college officials and signed the forms that led to the historic integration of a fiercely resistant Ole Miss. The incident, dubbed the Battle of Oxford, is mostly ignored in public...
