  • Read Sonya Sotomayor’s “Blistering” Dissent On Asylum Rules

    John Sexton wrote last night about yesterday’s Supreme Court decision on the White House’s new asylum rules. By a seven to two margin, the justices agreed that the rule, which essentially acts as a safe third country agreement (without Mexico’s participation) could remain in effect while the case continued through the appeals process.The two dissenting justices were Sotomayor and Ginsburg, with the former writing the dissent. As Newsweek points out, Sotomayor was rather blunt in her objections, but I can’t help wondering precisely what it was she was objecting to. “Once again the Executive Branch has issued a rule...

    Into the third year of his presidency, it still isn’t clear whether Twitter is a blessing or a curse for President Donald Trump. In the latest controversy, it’s been a curse.On Sunday morning, Trump tweeted that four far-leftists in Congress — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts — should “go back” to the countries from which they came, help fix their problems, and then return and “show us how it is done.”The controversy, of course, is that of the four individuals at which he directed his comments,...

    Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is, once again, under attack. And, once again, the attacks are from liberals who cannot tolerate Thomas' consistent, unyielding and faithful commitment to America's founding principles. The latest concerns Thomas' 20-page opinion offered up in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, recently considered by the Supreme Court. Planned Parenthood challenged Indiana law prohibiting abortion for reasons of sex, race or non-life threatening deformity. The challenge was upheld in district court and the law overturned. However, the Supreme Court chose not to rule on the matter for procedural reasons, turning it back to...
  • CNN Host Asks If FBI Should Have ‘Shut Down’ Trump Supporters Chanting ‘Lock Her Up

    CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour called "lock her up" chants by Donald Trump supporters "hate speech" in a new interview and asked James Comey if he wished he had "shut down that language" in his capacity as FBI Director at the time. Amanpour recounted the frequent chants at Trump 2016 campaign rallies about imprisoning Hillary Clinton for her perceived crimes and wondered if they should have been legal, but Comey responded it was not the role of government officials to censor that speech. "Do you, in retrospect, wish that people like yourself, the head of the FBI, the people in charge...

    Monday on MSNBC’s “Live,” Breitbart News’ senior editor-at-large Joel Pollak discussed President Donald Trump’s plan for an executive order “requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research dollars.” When asked if government intervention can change cultural problems on campuses, Pollack said, “I think the real answers are yes and no. So yes insofar as universities that have these speech codes, especially public universities, really shouldn’t have them—they’re arguably anti-constitutional. And as federal taxpayers, we should not want our money going to universities that do this kind of thing, especially if they are public universities. So...
  • Civil rights groups call for tech companies to crack down on hate speech (Irony)

    A group of civil rights organizations is pushing technology companies to create policies to more effectively address hate speech and extremist groups. The six organizations, joined by 40 other organizations who echoed the call, wrote in a report that they want the platforms to take more firm stances against “racism, sexism, xenophobia, religious bigotry, homophobia and transphobia,” and enforce policies against hate speech and extremist groups more strictly. The groups, which include the Center for American Progress, Color Of Change, Free Press, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the National Hispanic Media Coalition and the Southern Poverty Law...

    BROU-SUR-CHANTEREINE, France, September 18, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A pro-life French obstetrician who described abortion as homicide is drawing fire from France's pro-abortion media and the country's government itself. Even his own union is distancing itself from the pro-life physician's comments on abortion. Dr. Bertrand De Rochambeau, president of France's union of gynecologists and obstetricians, stood up for his right to refuse to commit abortions in an interview with a French television reporter. Reporter Valentine Oberti states in that interview that a conscientious objector clause to allow physicians in France to opt out of committing abortions is something that angers some...

    Following the removal of Alex Jones from Facebook, Apple and YouTube, for violating “hate speech” policies, Democrat Senator Chris Murphy tweeted “Infowars is just the tip of a giant iceberg.”Monday afternoon Murphy tweeted, “I know Facebook and Apple and YouTube have gotten so big they sometimes seem like the government. But they aren’t. They are private companies that shouldn’t knowingly spread lies and hate. They took a good first step today removing Infowars. Infowars is just the tip of the iceberg of hate and lies that uses sites like Facebook and Youtube to tear our nation apart. These companies must do more than take down one website. The survival of our...

    The jihad against the freedom of speech is advancing rapidly, and most people don’t even know it’s happening.Turkey’s state-run news outlet Anadolu Agency reports: Google’s first page results for searches of terms such as “jihad”, “shariah” and “taqiyya” now return mostly reputable explanations of the Islamic concepts. Taqiyya, which describes the circumstances under which a Muslim can conceal their belief in the face of persecution, is the sole term to feature a questionable website on the first page of results. (emphasis added) “Reputable” according to whom? “Questionable” according to whom?Google has bowed to pressure from Muslims such as Texas imam...

    Sacramento, California (CNN)It's a recent Friday night in downtown Sacramento, and there's a man in a hotel lobby wearing a fur vest and sunglasses. He has a British accent. A line of college-age fans stretches out the door. They're waiting for autographs and selfies. Some are wearing "Make America Great Again" caps. "Milo I love you! Oh my god, thank you -- I love what you do," says one woman to the man in the fur vest. "Thank you for what you're doing," says another college student wearing a Donald Trump hat. The subject of their adulation is not a...

    So, that man in “Freedom of Speech,” the famous Norman Rockwell painting of an America exercising one of the liberals’ least favorite rights, stands up in 2016 to say his peace and … it will not end well. You see, to liberals, what our guy has to say isn’t important – what’s important to liberals is to shut him up. It’s to punch down upon him with cheap mockery so he’s beaten into submission. It’s to use shame to silence him and every other irredeemable deplorable in order to consolidate their progressive death grip upon America’s throat. This will not...

    Whoever coined the phrase, “The devil you know is better than the one you don’t,” OBVIOUSLY never met Hillary Clinton. There is a reason she is called Hitlery not only in private, but often in print as well at times. There is no situation on earth that the Devil we know with Hitlery, is EVER better than ANYONE, let alone Donald Trump. How many people has Trump killed again? Oh yes, zero. First of all, there's her never-ending killing spree of her political opposition. On August 6th, when I wrote, Clinton Adds +5 to Body Count in 6 Weeks, a...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    In my old liberal hometown of Ithaca, NY, back in the days of George W., it seemed you couldn’t drive a block without seeing a “Dissent Is Patriotic” bumper sticker. But the night Barack Obama was elected, one imagined all across town earnest souls in their driveways, scraping those stickers off. And so it is that Joe Biden, the Vice-President of the United States, traveled to Ireland to imply that Donald Trump is ‘un-American.” For good measure, when it comes to illegal immigration, Biden proclaimed a preference for “bridges” over “walls.” Think about that.

    thenewamerican ^ | Monday, 19 October 2015 | Alex Newman
    The Obama administration's increasingly controversial Justice Department, in partnership with the ultra-leftist Southern Poverty Law Center, announced the creation of a new czar position to focus on “domestic terrorism” — especially the alleged threat from Christians and Americans with “anti-government” views. While ostensibly created to serve as a coordination office overseeing domestic terror cases, critics and analysts are sounding the alarm, warning that the administration is plotting to go after its political opponents with the full force of the federal government. The impetus for the Obama DOJ's new focus on conservatives, libertarians, Christians, and others appears to be the Southern...

    One of the biggest champions for gun control in the Empire State, State Sen. Liz Krueger, D-Manhattan, is advocating taking over the National Rifle Association from the inside. After broaching the subject in a round table discussion with U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-NY, who is a fan of anti-gun legislation at a national level, Kruger repeated it for clarity to the New York Daily News. “Perhaps if we all join, we could take over that group and start a new (gun control) platform,” Krueger said. “I think we outnumber the people who are members of the NRA and are so...

    Just 42 years ago, homosexuality was considered a diagnosable mental illness. In an ironic twist, it is now those who wantonly fear gay people that are being labeled as mentally ill. According to findings recently published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, if you harbor homophobic views it’s likely you may also endorse some of the following dysfunctions: misogynism, psychoticism, uber-religiosity, immature coping mechanisms, [discomfort] with close relationships, and above average levels of anger, aggression, hostility, and hyper-masculinity.
  • In Welcoming Sanders, Liberty University Shows the Left How to Handle Dissent

    National Review ^ | 09/16/2015 | by Andrew T. Walker
    Most have heard by now that Senator Bernie Sanders spoke at Liberty University yesterday. Liberty, of course, is the university masthead for conservative Christianity and the origin of the Jerry Falwell enterprise. Its influence in merging conservative Christianity with Republicans politics is well known. Sanders, of course, is the notoriously liberal — nay, socialist — United States senator from Vermont now running a long-shot bid for the presidency. Sanders is an avowed progressive whose views earnestly mimic those of European statists. He’s pro–gay rights, pro–gay marriage, and pro-abortion. On issues near and dear to conservative Christians — life and marriage...

    In controversial cases, is the role of jurist to inflame controversy, or quell it? In Loving v. Virginia, the 1967 case which found race-based marriage bans unconstitutional, Chief Justice Earl Warren built a 9-0 consensus—just as he’d done years earlier in Brown vs. Board of Education. He knew that a country divided by race ought to be united, if possible, by a Supreme Court mindful of fundamental values—even if the Court was, as the constitution requires, overturning the will of the majority. The four dissents in the landmark case on same-sex marriage, Obergefell v. Hodges, one by each of the...
