    What idiot thinks the USA needs to be involved for North Korea to get it’s ass handed to it?

    Last time we were involved only because Russia and China were involved. Also Last time South Korea was evenly matched with north Korea.

    Today South Korea alone can smash North Korea They don’t even need Japanese help. South Korea’s own feckless leaders are the only liability there.

    So why on earth would the USA commit to a fight it doesn’t need to be involved in?

    It does not benefit us to fight a 2nd Korean war, We don’t stand to gain anything. Best to just sit back and watch South Korea reunite the Korea’s.

    We gain nothing from helping them and only stand to lose billion of dollars in equipment and perhaps thousands of american lives.

    “Politics makes strange bedfellows, though. Corporations may give lip service and even more to lefty causes, but quite often it’s just trying to buy them off. When actually pressed, they prefer conservative courts; these will not be constantly surprising them with new liabilities.”

    The big ones probably figure they can afford to weather the liabilities with their army of lawyers and bought off judges. Their smaller competitors will be screwed.

    But the big fights between major companies will make them all the real difference by buying off the judges.

    I think conservatives are just recognizing that judges are a major playing field where law is made. Something the left has been at for 100 years.

    If they can get the low level courts, then they will raise the bar for activist leftist suing and blackmailing them for money.

    ” This is why it is credible when Donald Trump says he wants more Thomas’s on the USSC. “

    Until Trump can show that he can beat Hillary Clinton rather than loses in a landslide against her, what he wants is ill-relevant. Trump has also pointed out this is why he has a long history of given to democrats.

    “Not that the compliant press would ever report on that story.”

    We see very little corruption cases before the Federal employees unless ‘higher’ employees choose to recognize it. In short they are their own police and accountable to nobody not even the people.

    The only thing a media organization can do is alienate these dictators against them.

    It may be convenient that the most powerful and effective of theses dictators generaly don’t disagree with the majority in the press, but it is also very much a practical matter.

    There is nothing they can do to stand up to theses people who have been given unaccountable power.

    Only the relatively low level judges are truly accountable for any abuse of power or corruption, and rarely taken seriously.

    This is a corrupt system, that only ever worked among them of impeccable integertiy and fidelity to the law with a reliance upon cooperation among the other 2 branches of Government.

    That cooperation is no longer required as it is now effectively compelled. Thus far from being 1 branch of a 3 branch government they are now able to rule as the supreme 1 branch.

    Theses people need to be called the fascist they are, both the politicians and the company leaders pushing this intolerance for other people’s freedom of speech and right to privacy.

    They act as if the choice or ‘feelings’ of a tiny minority were the only important right of all. Never mind the feelings and ‘choices’ of any other minority or majority for that matter.

    We have rights, to choose whom we do business with, that is fundamental to a free market economy.

    Just the same we have right to base our judgments of safety upon physical reality that we see. Anyone who refuses to acknowledge that reality is themselves willfully dilution.

    I’m sorry but if you got junk in your pants your a man, and yes that means you can be presumed to be a threat to a woman’s privacy and virginity.

    That is the basis upon which the segregation of the sexs is built to protect. Not some funny ideas in any one member of either sexes head.

    But if you want to talk about ideas, then why don’t we talk about distinguishing ideas that disagree with physical reality and ignore consequences from ideas that actually acknowledge that reality and the very real consequences that result from it.

    Homosexuality is a self-destructive life style, people who suffer from it are no more to be celebrated as normal than a man who suffers from any other self-destructive lifestyle be it due to drugs, addiction to danger, or alcoholism.

    Nobody that truly loves any of theses people encourages their behavior anymore than they would wish them harm.

    Homosexuality is Not a race or even a sustainable ‘sub culture’ homosexuality is self-destructive because its natural impulses are incomparable with biological survival, simply because they are at odds with physical reality.

    IF you really loved theses people you should help them to overcome their mental issues and work in the real world. Only then do they and their posterity(which can only result from working with that world) have a future.

    The ‘courts’ have acquired far too much power in this country. The so called “judicial” philosophy of our present federal employees in black robes which is in practice little more than case by case law making with the presumption that lower courts will enforce said edicts as law.

    “But illegal aliens and Muslim terrorists have constitutional right according to her.”

    Honestly the Federal Constitution applies to the Federal government not the people or their states. There is no such thing as a ‘constitutional’ right except that expressly given to the Federal government in terms of the ability to make law.

    When the Federal employees in black robes decide to make their own law. They started inventing a select handful of polices they wanted to push and created individual ‘rights’ which they would elevate above all others as a means to create,abolish, or alter existing law in cadences to whatever their agenda is as they apply it to any given case.

    Primarily thou when it comes to their ability to prosecuted Government and State officials do they find their real power, to superseded not only the Constitution’s restrictions upon their power but to directly govern the people by hijacking their other elected agents.

    There uses to be a concept called solvergin immunity and the 11th amendment that prevented this hijacking of the legislative and executive branch by the federal employees in black robes. Those restrictions have over the 20th century been cast away. Primarily in the now fascist but formerly simply fanatical crusade against the never ending boggy man of racism.

    Until the people unite against the Federal employees in black robes and strip them of their legislative and executive power over the Constitution and all other parts of the Government there can be no justice or freedom in this country.

    The lawyers will run everything, as policy makers using judges as enforcers. Just like they been doing with increasing degrees of success over the last 50 years.

    It is child abuse, the very propose of parenting is to protect children from themselves and the world until such time that they are old and informed enough of that world and themselves to be able to protect themselves.

    Surgery and drugs are extremely dangerous, if they don’t kill you they can and in this case will mane you for life.

    In this respect letting a child make such a choice is no different than letting your child go play in the free way.

    Children can’t understand how dangerous and consequential such choices are. Parents that allow children to make such choices are abusing them.

    Facts are stubborn things. If you hate them or choose to believe they hate you. You are ignoring them not addressing them much less learning of them.

    Some people never grow up to know the world as it is. Some people are instead raised to treat every one who says no to them as an enemy rather than acknowledge why they said no. Much less reevaluate their position upon better information and informed perspective.

    Those who hate the truth really just hate themselves and all the world which refuses to repeat that which they have decided should be the truth.

    Well life doesn’t work that way, and we are sorry they had such bad parents as not to teach them that simple fact while growing up. Now the rest of us have to figure out how to deal with these adult children.

    It is child abuse.

    Poor girl, if she never does learn to become comfortable with her sex, her life will be very much diminished by her learned desire to be something she is not. Particularly when purity comes along to confuse her further. She will never know the joys of having children of her own if their misguided mindset drives her to remove the parts she needs.

    On the other hand if she does come to accept and love being a girl, she will be embarrassed and weakened by the childhood experience. If it happens after she makes consequential choices with surgery or drugs, she will be crippled for life.

    Children are not old enough to make important choices, they do not understand the world as it is or even themselves, They won’t until they have adult minds and maybe not even after that for some of us. It is the job of parents to protect children not simply from the world but most of all from themselves until they reach that age in which they can protect themselves. This is called parenting. Brad Pitt and Angelina are doing a very big disservice for the children they have taken into their care.

    Seriously anyone who would allow a child to subject themselves to dangerous and unnecessary surgery and drugs simply to satisfied an Idea which they are not even old enough to understand. Is a child abuser.

    Children do not understand sex and they will not understand it until after they have adult minds.

    If you want to go down this dangerous road, you should at least be grown up enough to understand the risks and implications. Until then facts matter, children need to finish learning about the world as it is before they can make an informed judgement on how and even whether they should try to change it.

    This is as true of sex as it should be of everything else. Stop the child abuses! Stop letting children destroy their lives with non-grownup experience and understanding!

    Honestly they we thought it was crazy to just hand people money and finance existing programs as if the Government is the driver of all economic activity rather than generally a wast of resources(human and material).

    Very little that Obama spent money on had any effect on the economy at all. indeed we would have been far better off if he had allowed the bad industries to collapse and good industries to take over their good assets and market share.
    That is how a real economy is suppose to work, that is how you generate real wealth with new ideas. You let the corrupt and wasteful go out of business.

    The Federal court’s must be made accountable to the States and the other 2 branches of Government. Their power to dictate law must be abolished.Freedom cannot endure in this country without rule of law rather then the Men of the court.

    Consister this:

    Nether the presidents nor congress can change ‘laws’ made by the supreme dictators in black robes. All they can do hope enough of them will retire or die as to replace them with better dictators.
    Ironically if they believed as the court allegedly does in ‘equal justice under the law’ then they could facilitate that very ‘retirement’ by permitting the ‘abortion’ of corrupt federal employees, and striking down any law which might ‘inhibit’ that effort.
    Believe it or not ‘murder’ is and was a natural right just like all other forms of crime. If the court thinks we are entitled to any number of unenumerated rights then logically killing must be among those ‘rights reserved to the people’. As it is no more mentioned in the Federal Constitution than its application in abortion is. At the State level thou acts of the State legislators as authorized by the State (not federal) Constitution, we ceded a domain of these rights for the protection of other rights we deem more important (like life).

    Legislators were created to make (after strict deliberation and debate) these offend controversial and fundamentally vital choices between rights. This was and is the essence of making law. This also is why the legislative process is so difficult. The founders felt the State of nature which represent those rights we naturally have and can defend for ourselves was the default position(as it is in nature) and should not be altered without the most careful and deliberated process which required the consent of broad spectrums of the population who’s rights are to be affected.
    When the federal employees started stepping into this role of deciding which rights should be protected at the expense of other rights retained by the people, they abolished every protection we had in that process, not to mention the fundamental democratic nature of that process.
    Furthermore as the court acts in this capacity as both judge and lawmaker, there really is no law at all, as it can chance any time & case the federal employees decided to change it. The result is no man’s life or liberty is safe. There is also no opportunity to avoid breaking a law which hasn’t ‘created’ yet.
    The gay ‘marriage’ deal is a good recent example, a man was persecuted because he followed the law as then written and understood for 200+ years, which said only male and female pairs are to be treated as married. No matter what your opinion on the merits of that law, it is in fact the law that is written and followed unanimously for 200+ years and never changed by any legislator.
    It is just as unjust and unfair to charge anyone with a crime for following that law as it would be to charge you with a crime for following the existing law which permits you to walk down the street. Yet that is precisely how a court ‘makes law’.
    The truth is that is not law. Law is written, law is practice consistently from the time it was created until it was abolished, law is passed by legislators thou a legislative process, and law is uniformly applied. A court’s edict has none of these attributes of law, and thus is not rule of law at all but the rule of the men of the court who could just as quickly change their mind of what people must(or cannot) do in the next case as they did in the last.

    As the Greeks wisely pointed out this situation represents the definition of tyranny. Pray that we keep ‘reasonable’ dictators.

As the Constitution is silent on how long such land must be in federal control, its really a technicality that the federal government would immediately resell the land to a private party.

    The only reasonable and fair thing to do is to give the original owner first right to rebuy the property at original value.

    Still none of this applies to any State which is separately authorized by its people to uses such powers in their own constitution. The legality of the action Trump benefited from are the subject of New Jersey’s constitution.

    While guns will be straightforward redefinition of the 2nd amendment as to apply only to the Government controlled forces.

    The first amendment will be abolished by way of the 14th amendments empowered ‘civil rights’ act which simply means anything we say that is ‘offencive’ to the left will be banned and persecuted. Unfortunately as we already see today the definition of what is ‘offensive’ to the left includes anything and everything that is politically disagreeable to them and their causes. Tolltarism will come to public power in America. By way of the unaccountable federal employees in black robes edicts and enforcement.

    We have seen this way of thinking coming down this path for generations, They are currently well prepared and positioned for the next logical leap, as they demonstrated on leftist controlled ‘collage’ campuses. An entire generation of our young has been taught to tolerate and embrace totalitarianism so long as they are told is it against undefinable evils called ‘biggity’.

    I agree, the law does not hold any meaning among those who believe they can change its meaning to in their opinion ‘fit the time’ as they see it.

    That is literally and non-ambiguously changing the law from the bench to match your own opinion. Or in the case of the Federal magistrates simply choosing to enforce whatever they want. Thy very name is lawlessness just as thy end is the very definition of tyranny.

    If Scalia is replaced with a lawless leftist or ‘conservative’ there will be no room for even hope for the possibility of law in this country. Our only long term option will be a kind of revolution in how we enforce the Constitution.

    We would have to return to the old ways of 3 separate but equal branches of Government at the Federal and State level each able to refuses the edicts of the others. Only then would elections matter and the Constitution be enforceable with the consent of the governed.

    Short term judges can be ‘retired’ early by radicals but that of course will only lead to Anarchy. As ours becomes like the late roman republic where power is as much a product of the sword as it is the people.(Fate of Democracy and arbitrary rule.

    I think Trump was lowering himself to go after Jeb.

This well funded campaign strategy has not only not moved Jeb’s polls it has alienated him from the entire party.

    Nether trump, nor ted, nor even Rubio needs to attack Jeb. Indeed Trump really doesn’t need to attack anyone but clinton. Having such a huge lead Trump is all but guaranteed the nomination. He needs to focus his time and resources on the real fight.

    If Trump can prove he can beat clinton most of his primary challengers will drop off the radar. The Republican party cannot afford to lose this election. It is all or nothing for the party now. If we lose this election the party and the movement is effectively history on the national stage.

    In the end if a law(including but not limited to a Constitutional law) is interpreted in any way other than the way it was by the writers when passed/ratified. It is not a law but a judgement of men in black robes, indeed you can’t even call that a legitimate interpenetration.

    The whole point of rule of law is so that men sitting in the court and its appointing executive office can’t simply make up the law as they go. The idea of a ‘living’ constitution as they euphemistically call it is the idea of the rule of men who’s judgement and standards change case by case by their personal values and assessment of the ‘times’ and people before them thus also the nature of the law without any laborious act of the legislator or for that matter constitutional limitation changes in each case. Invariably according to their desires.

    Its like you deliberately ignoring what your boss told you to do and going off and doing your own thing which you claim is tangentially related to your boss’s orders.

    You will get fired as your boss will see you hijacking the business and sabotaging its common goals. Yet that is precisely what today’s ‘court’ does with regard to our Constitution.

    It is not obedience to law of the people, nor is it good behavior by the so called employees of the people. Just as it is not rule of law, but rule of dishonorable men with their own agenda and no accountability.

    To that end we as conservatives should see injustices like John Roberts and Kennedy just like we see injustices like Kagen and Ginsburg. As Oligarchs/dictators, not men or women of law. To that end if we must choose between them the question is really what dictator you would prefer to live under Roberts vs Kagen.

    We of course agree that idealy we should like the rule of law and republican democracy but that is not always obtainable

    A constitution that depends upon any one man or one group of men, is not a Constitution of civil Government at all. It defies the point of a written Constitution if it must be upheld or ‘defined’ by the very employees it is designed to limit. Such employees might as well be bound by nothing more than tradition.

    The only long term security for a Constitutional republic is not to take orders from Federal Employees in black robes. But rather to respect their power to try only the cases and people before them. If they can bring or have brought anyone and everyone before them then there really is no law but that which they choose.

    When it comes to the issue of abuses of power, the only party that will ever reconcile such abuses is the party out of power, and against whom such power is being abused.

    Impeachment is not such a grand idea when it comes to limiting power. It is at best only practical when there are clearly a criminal behavior on the part of the official which nobody supports.

    If you want to check power you must check power by someone or group with a natural interest in opposing the illegitimate power.
    The original presumption was that the function of the system which originally depended heavily upon all 3 branches agreeing on Federal issues, and the States cooperating on domestic matters would have the rendering the Government difficult to enforce without all officials involved agreeing with the legitimacy of the action.

    That system however fell apart as the Feds acquired the means to enforce their own domestic laws, and their court’s acquired the legal means to command elected officials at the state level. (effectively nullifying the 11th amendment)

    The door is already open under 5 federal employees with the effective power to make law and inclination not to limit their appointing masters.

    Ideally we would have a Constitution that is enforceable, but that isn’t going happen when 5 federal employees can tell the rest of us what that Constitution says.

    Checks and balances do not exist when one side gets to make all the rules of all the other sides, There is no more balance than there is check for that side.

    The court must be made accountable. The Federal Employee’s edicts Must be restrained with in the domain of the cases before them and NOT extend to telling other elected officials what they must do with their branch of government.

    I would recommend reinforcing the 11th amendment but that demented has been repealed in practiced by the Federal Court. A new system of accountability must be put in place where the Court is subjugated to State interest. We had a limited system in the appointment of judges before the 17th amendment made the U.S. Senate anther version of the U.S. House, but we lost that in 1913.

    A new system must be invented to bind the interest of the court to respect the rights of the States, unless we repeal the 17th amendment. I favor State veto, if not by State legislators then by State supreme court Justices who are themselves appointed and approved by legislators.

    I was a fan of Nikki until she betrayed us to the left by taking down the Flag in favor of the opinion of a bunch of racist.

    Nikki has bad judgement, and is likely to stab us in the back just like she did last night. That said our real battle is not for the presidency its for our State legislators.

    We won’t win this war against Washington by winning the presidency. The presidency can at best give us temporary victory as we have seen. Ultimately the real issue is the lawlessness of that government, controlling the same with the presidency will not solve that problem.

    We need 34 State legislators to call a convention and modify the Constitution as to restore Federalism by restoring accountability lost with the 17th Amendment, and subsequent Constitutional alterations by Federal employees in black robes.

    We also need the State legislators to reform education as to start teaching our people American constitutionalism and the founding principles of self-reliance and individual liberty of Natural rights vs the newly created concept of ‘civil rights’ again.

    The truth is contrary to Nikki’s words this is not the land of immigrants for the propose of being the land of immigrants but rather for the propose of being the land of the free.

    A land where immigrants may come to be free, not to live freely on the backs of others, but to be responsible and able to live upon ones own back. Unburden to the fullest of ones potential.

    It is not a “land of immigrants” this is the land of limited Government, to which immigrants seeking freedom of have come to live.

    “If she is the VP candidate I am staying home.”

    I can’t agree with not voting. We need to win State elections. I do agree about not voting for Nikki, we don’t need the presidency that much as to put a traitor in to office who would only undermine our cause.

    Nikki’s failure to defend Southern history and tradition in favor of the opinion of a bunch of racist simply means she not only has bad judgement for unwittingly served said racist. It also suggest she doesn’t support the the kind of heroism and commitment to heritage and the independent spirt we need now more than ever.

    We don’t need or want her in the presidency, and we really don’t need or want the presidency to reform Washington either. The Presidency at best offers temporary solutions to a long term problem using the very power that is the problem. That power must be destroyed and/or transferred to the States where it can be held in check by interstate Completion.

    This is why strategically to accomplish our Goals of Constitutional accountability and education of our people we need State legislators NOT the presidency. That is why our real battle is not for the presidency its for our State legislators. We won’t win this war by winning the presidency. We need 34 State legislators to call a convention. We have to bring accountability to the Federal Government, We must Teach Constitutionalism in the Public schools again, if we can accomplish that then the war is ours. The left knows this(as the ACLU’s response to Abbot’s speech proves), shift power back to the States and its game over for socialism. The competitive accountability of the States makes socialism collapse on its own merits rather than enslave the people to support its wast and tyranny.

    Their cause was just, their means was just not appropriate for the cause.

    Taking over a Federal cabin even if it is in the middle of no where and uninhabited is no way to effect federal policy. Washington cares no more about the cabin than they do about any of the other western lands and people.

    Taking over a small bit of it is nothing more than an afrount to their power, as unjust as it may be. The only thing you can do is force them to overplay their hand. Unfortunately this is not the right settling to do it in.

    You have to be defending your own home in peace, to iliscit the sympathy of the people. Taking over federal property even that which is unoccupied, unjustly owned, and insignificant gives them the moral high ground by making you the aggressor.

    Its best to make nice here, Explain that this was a protest and that your efforts to bring attention to your cause got out of hand. Then ask to leave in peace with a small fine.
