    If equal protection of the law commands electoral districts of equal populations, then most ratifying states violated the 14th Amendment the moment it went into effect in 1868. In 1962, scotus overturned 120 years of stare decisis and traditions going back to our early colonial days when it determined apportionment of legislative districts was not a strictly political matter, but also justiciable.1 Scotus’ abuse went further in 1964 when it determined that equal protection not only meant “one man one vote” among state assemblies and the US House of Representatives, but also applied to state senate districts.2 The court claimed...

    Democrats, the Never Trumpers, the media and the wobbly establishment Republicans who all seem aghast at the outcome of a single news conference hosted by Donald Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin I was a child, young adult, aspiring young military man and aged warrior of the Cold War between the United States and the former Soviet Union. During my time in the military, I trained for—and became proficient at—combating the Russian hordes, or their surrogates, anywhere in the world. As a fighter pilot who really embraced the profession of arms, I must say that I have always held a...
  • Dinesh D'Souza explains 'outrageous' Trump-Lincoln comparison

    When Americans assess Donald Trump, a president who in many ways has broken the mold, comparisons don’t come easily. But Abraham Lincoln? That’s the startling proposition illustrated in promotional posters for Dinesh D’Souza’s upcoming film “Death of a Nation,” which contends America is once again faced with an existential crisis. In an interview with WND, D’Souza explained he is not asserting that Trump is Lincoln. “We are saying there are situations that are eerily similar, the accusations against the two men are remarkably similar and Trump can take a page from the great emancipator,” D’Souza said. The filmmaker, known for...

    It sounds like the plot of some brain-dead Hollywood comedy that has already been made too many times: Movie executive: OK, here’s an idea. You know those geniuses who Jay Leno used to interview on the street who couldn’t answer basic questions like who the vice president is, or what Columbus Day celebrates? Well, what if someone like that ran for Congress and actually won? How funny would that be!Producer: Great! We’ll get Amy Schumer or Lena Dunham to play the lead!Executive: No, I said it’s supposed to be funny. Yes, you’ve seen some version of this before. It was...

  • Apollo 11 Moon Landing

    Forty-nine years ago today: "Houston. Tranquility Base here, the Eagle has landed." Neil Armstrong. Photos of the Lunar Module, LM, pronounced LEM. The Command Module had to retract the LM from Apollo's third stage on the way to the moon. The LM consisted of a descent and ascent stage. No need for a aerodynamic design as the moon has no atmosphere. Hard to believe 12 men walked on the moon and all came home safely.

    In retrospect, the events surrounding the Foster homicide showed the overwhelming power of the Deep State to cover up a shocking crime which occurred 25 years ago today. They simply called it a "suicide" and left it at that. The credible evidence overwhelmingly suggested "homicide," yet no perp nor perps were ever brought to justice. No perps of a serious crime brought to justice? Sounds familiar?

    Special counsel's immunity offer for Tony Podesta to testify against Paul Manafort is evidence of discrepancy, Peter Schweizer says There is a “different set of standards” for the Clintons and those associated with them that drives Americans mad, Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President Peter Schweizer said Thursday night on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.” “This is what drives people crazy about criminal justice in America. There’s a different set of standards for people in power — particularly those politically connected by the Clintons — and those same rules do not apply to ordinary Americans,” Schweizer lamented.

    An elderly Italian man who lived on the outskirts of Rimini, Italy went to the local church for confession. When the priest slid open the panel in the confessional, the man said: "Father…During World War II, a beautiful Jewish woman from our neighborhood knocked urgently on my door and asked me to hide her from the Nazis. So I hid her in my attic." The priest replied: "That was a wonderful thing you did and you have no need to confess that." "There is more to tell, Father. She started to repay me with sexual favors. This happened several times...

    Today is the anniversary of the denouement of the nearly-forgotten "20th of July" plot in 1944, when a courageous, but incredibly quixotic, group of old-fashioned German patriots under the leadership of Army officer Count Claus von Stauffenberg sought to achieve a compromise end to World War II in Europe by assassinating Adolf Hitler in his headquarters at Rastenburg, East Prussia, preparatory to opening peace negotiations with the western allies (i.e., excluding Russia). The conspiracy involved a number of high-ranking officers, including Generals Ludwig Beck and Friedrich Obert, but collapsed when a bomb placed by Stauffenberg himself failed to kill Hitler,...

    North Korea will return the remains of about 50 Americans killed during the Korean War over the next two weeks, the first set of repatriations since the recent summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un, a report says. A senior U.S. defense official said on Tuesday that the move will take place within two weeks, though the exact timing and number of those being returned remain uncertain, according to a Reuters report. The development comes after a two-day meeting between U.S. and North Korean officials at the Demilitarized Zone. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said at the beginning of...

    THE government is investigating the source of the tarpaulins that suddenly appeared in several places in Manila proclaiming the Philippines as a Province of China. I don’t think this is a prank but that there are sectors in this country that want to call attention to the possibility that at the rate the Duterte government is handling the West Philippine Sea and Scarborough Shoal issues, this country will truly become a province of China. The idea of the Philippines as a Chinese province should not be seen as an impossibility. Even now the Chinese government is already engaged in clear...

    The first distinction between Progressives and Constitutional Originalists is their polar opposite emphasis on process. Progressive couldn’t care less for constitutional process. Oh, they’ll utilize constitutional processes if they can arrive at the desired progressive conclusion, but it ultimately doesn’t matter whether they arrive at social justice via popular referendum, statute, administrative regulation, or judicial decisions. Constitutional Originalists cherish proper processes, and the most important process in the American republic is lawmaking, and limited lawmaking, by Congress. To paraphrase Edmund Burke, Originalists sniff out tyranny with every regulation or court decision, regardless of its perceived social justice benefit, which has...

    Italians are questioning the reasonableness and effectiveness of their complex and strict gun control laws. From thelocal.com: While 26 percent of people questioned in 2015 said they supported looser laws on owning a gun for self-defence, the latest research carried out by social studies institute Censis and private security sector organization Federsicurezza found that 39 percent were in favour. The percentage was highest among people with a low level of education and the elderly, rising to 51 percent among respondents who hadn't completed high school and 41 percent for the over-65s. The study also found that the number of...

    SEOUL, South Korea — With a 21-gun salute and the playing of taps, the U.S.-led United Nations Command and South Korea on Friday repatriated the remains of two soldiers found decades after they were killed in the Korean War. It was a somber reminder of the importance both countries place on the return of lost troops amid hopes that North Korea will follow through on a commitment to return more war dead. The North skipped a meeting planned Thursday in the Demilitarized Zone to discuss the issue, but State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said they had offered to meet Sunday...
