    All of these rulings by the court against Trump's executive orders are an overstepping of their judicial authorities. The judges are acting illegally. In Article I, Section 8 of the United States Constitution the text states that Congress has the authority to “constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court.” In Article III of the U.S. Constitution, when referring to the inferior federal courts, it states that it is Congress who may from “time to time ordain and establish.”
  • Rand Paul: Trump needs Congress to authorize military action in Syria

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) asserted Thursday night that President Trump needs congressional authorization for military action in Syria after Trump ordered an airstrike in the country following a deadly chemical attack earlier this week. "While we all condemn the atrocities in Syria, the United States was not attacked," Paul said in a statement shortly after reports that the U.S. had launched more than 50 Tomahawk cruise missiles against an airfield in Syria. "The President needs congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution, and I call on him to come to Congress for a proper debate," Paul said....

    President Barack Obama stated in Cairo, Egypt, June 4, 2009: “When the first Muslim American was recently elected to Congress, he took the oath to defend our Constitution using the … Holy Quran.” The question is: Can one swear to defend a man-made Constitution of laws upon a book that claims to be filled with superior divine laws, and which instructs faithful followers to subversively lie to make it superior? Dr. Irwin Lutzer reported in his book “The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent” (2013) of a Muslim demonstrator in Dearborn, Michigan, holding a sign stating: “We will use...

    Trump’s policies in favor of free enterprise and freedom of speech and in favor of all the Amendments to and protections of the U.S. Constitution and Trump’s positions against terrorists and criminals and repressions of freedom of thought Trump may have inadvertently hurt his cause by saying too much, from time to time, and not always in a politically incorrect way (deemed politically correct by most people), but one 4-letter word he has hardly ever used is “even” followed by the 2-letter word “if.” If used properly, and in enough contexts, these two words, “even if,” have the potential to...

    Why is political discourse so bad right now? How have Christian beliefs, particularly Catholic beliefs, and those who hold them come to be reviled by so many in the secular culture? Where did political correctness, gender conflict, gender confusion — and so many other aspects of the Culture of Death — come from?The answer to these, and many other questions, can be found in the EWTN Original Documentary “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing,” a chilling look at the impact of Community Activist Saul Alinsky, whose “Rules for Radicals” still wields a huge influence on American culture – and the...

    Back during the 1972 campaign, satirist Mort Sahl, long thought to be a man of the Left but actually quite independent-minded, said something like this: "In less than 200 years we’ve gone from Madison, Adams, Franklin and Washington to Nixon and McGovern. What can we conclude from this? Darwin was wrong!" The reference, of course, is to Charles Darwin’s thesis that man evolved into a higher species. Nevertheless, roughly the same could be said of the grand old document that quartet crafted: The United States Constitution. At a Constitution Day conference at the Cato Institute on September 15, 2016, Elizabeth...

    The Constitution of the United States - Broken down into its sentences and proofread. Several years ago, I posted the Declaration of Independence broken down into its sentences and proofread. (Jefferson, for all his praises and faults, was a great writer, and little proofreading was needed.) Earlier this year, I posted George WashingtonÂ’s Rules of Civility broken down into its sentences and proofread. Washington copied these from a book written earlier by someone else, and it required a lot of proofreading. Grammar of 270 years ago had capital letters in words in different parts of a sentence, at random it...

The version Khan used at the convention did not appear to be the same as the one that became popular on Amazon. …

    The death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia at age 79 of natural causes Saturday in Texas is an ideal occasion to reflect on the profound influence he had on the legal profession and, by extension, the nation. Astute observers of academic life in America know that the law professoriate has long been dominated by liberals. I discovered this when I arrived at law school, and my professors ignored, dismissed, or derisively mocked conservative and libertarian legal arguments. The dominance of progressive legal views is so powerful that even faculty members who are politically moderate are pressured into...

It violated promises that the President of the United States made to Congress in order to pass Obamacare.The administration rolled it out with an orchestrated apologia from the pandering press. Equally pandering organizations such as the ACLU joined in with assurances that the Mandate...

    CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts, October 29, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy told a Harvard Law School audience that government employees with religious convictions about marriage should resign. The Ronald Reagan appointee said on Wednesday that if a public official has a moral objection to homosexuality, he must either follow the law or quit public service. The judge's comment came in answer to a question a student asked about government officials who disagree with the Supreme Court's decisions on gay marriage, or abortion, and if those citizens have the constitutional right to act according to their sincerely held moral...

    President Barack Obama stated in Cairo, Egypt, June 4, 2009: “When the first Muslim American was recently elected to Congress, he took the oath to defend our Constitution using the … Holy Quran.” The dilemma is: How can one swear to defend something upon a book that promotes the opposite? The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states that Congress shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise of religion, yet the Quran states in Sura 4:89, “Those who reject Islam must be killed. If they turn back (from Islam), take hold of them and kill them wherever you find...

    Our governing system no longer serves its intended purpose, that being “to secure the blessings of liberty.” In fact, any casual read of the Constitution reveals our government’s wholesale departure from the genius of the Founders. Congress sloughs off or re-assigns its responsibility to craft legislation, determine spending, ratify treaties, oversee the executive branch and regulate the judicial. No longer content with rewriting statutes, SCOTUS increasingly elevates itself above God; its Obergefell v. Hodges ruling which assigned to homosexuals the fundamental right of marriage, is only the latest outrage among many. The decisions of Executive branch agencies mirror the demands...

    Just a little more about the call for a “Constitutional Convention,” or a “Convention of States,” as it is now being called. They just gave it a new name to make you think it is an exercise by the various states. It isn’t. And here is why. The authorization for calling a “convention,” or “meeting” for the purpose of changing the Constitution of the United States is found in Article V. It is very short. Only one paragraph. In fact, it is only one sentence! Here it is, in its entirety. Article V The Congress, whenever two thirds of both...

    The Libertarians are up in arms this week after the Justice Department served subpoenas to Nick Gillespie’s Reason Magazine over comments left on their web site by anonymous readers. The commentariat buzz in question erupted over an article dealing with the life sentence imposed on Silk Road founder Ross Ulbricht. This has prompted some outraged cries from observers such as Bloomberg contributor (and former Reason editor) Virginia Postrel, who described the move as stomping on free speech. Powerline’s Steven Hayward (coincidentally also a former contributor to Reason) wonders aloud whether the Justice Department attorneys are just stupid or possibly...
