Trump not a big fan of Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments

Civil asset forfeiture is the power of government to seize property suspected of being produced by, or involved in, criminal activity based only on the suspicion of such activity, even before being charged or convicted of a crime. There is…

The Democrats’ euphemisms

The Democratic Party has waged a war against straightforward speech for decades. They aren’t pro-abortion. They’re pro-choice. They aren’t anti-gun. They’re for gun control. They aren’t pro-terrorist. They’re just opposed to racial and religious profiling. They aren’t big spenders. They’re pro-government ‘investment’. They aren’t the party of tax increases. They’re the party that favors the […]

Stupidity, ignorance, personified

Comments sections of newspapers frequently look like a bad stretch of Twitter. Still, they’re often instructive of what people think on issues. In some instances, they’re proof that people don’t think. The comment section of this thoughtful LTE is quite instructive. One commenter said “If a gun is just a tool, why do some people […]

Trump campaign: Do we really need the Second Amendment?

The total disregard by liberals in both parties of our constitutional right to keep and bear arms has been on blatant display for years, but the intensity has picked up dramatically in the aftermath of the Orlando mass shooting by…

Nolan joins Pelosi’s sit-in

Rick Nolan isn’t the brightest bulb in the chandelier. I recall thinking that when he was my congressman back in the mid-1970s. Back then, constituents knew that he’d vote the way Democratic leadership told him to vote. Nothing’s changed in 40+ years. Yesterday, Nolan joined the Democrats’ gun control sit-in. When it was his time […]

Civil rights offenders

Apparently, Terri Bonoff thinks she’s a serious threat to defeating Erik Paulsen. She isn’t. Nonetheless, she’s pushing the DFL/DCCC meme that last week’s terrorist attack is a gun control issue. It isn’t. This tweet should be ridiculed. In that tweet, Ms. Bonoff said “Silence speaks louder than words. These members of Congress cannot defend their […]

Liberals: Let’s void Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments so we can void Second

In the days following last weekend’s massacre in Orlando, Progressive Liberals (PL) have been working overtime to find new and creative ways to strip us of our constitutional right to own a gun. I intentionally used the words Progressive Liberal…

Majority favors limiting Fifth Amendment and killing Americans

The attack on the Constitution by every branch of government on every level — federal, state, and local — is troubling to say the least. But even more troubling is a recent upward trend indicating a willingness by many Americans to surrender their constitutional rights to government under the misguided notion that doing so will make their world a safer place. In January I wrote about a Washington Post – ABC News poll that showed how 63% of Americans were willing to give up their personal privacy rights in order to help battle terrorism. In February I wrote about a Rasmussen poll that indicated a growing belief that the president should have the right to ignore the courts if they stand in the way of actions he feels are important to the country. Now comes word of a new poll by the Associated Press showing that nearly 75% of Americans are OK with using unmanned aerial drone strikes to kill an American citizen abroad if that person has joined a terror organization. In addition, it showed that 6 in 10 supports the use of drones to target terrorists in general. While this may sound reasonable, it raises several problems for […]

Chisholm should be disbarred

When I first read David French’s article, my first reaction was that John T. Chisholm, the Milwaukee County District Attorney, should be disbarred, then tried and convicted, then thrown into prison for a very long time. Chisholm is a progressive political hack with a mission to destroy the conservative movement in Wisconsin: Cindy Archer, one […]

The Totalitarian Left’s intimidation

The Totalitarian Left’s intimidation tactics might’ve reached criminal level. Glenn Reynolds explains in this USA Today special op-ed: When Vladimir Putin sends government thugs to raid opposition offices, the world clucks its tongue. But, after all, Putin’s a corrupt dictator, so what do you expect? But in Wisconsin, Democratic prosecutors were raiding political opponents’ homes […]

Moscow on the Mississippi?

After reading this article, I’m wondering if I’m living the United States or in the former Soviet Union. Seriously, does anyone think that governments should be able to use eminent domain to take private property from a family to build biking hiking trails? That’s what Dakota County is attempting to do: The county is seeking […]

Obama Supporters Petition to Eliminate Right to Remain Silent by Repealing the 5th Amendment

Only necessity defense may save Nevada police from home-invasion liability

Police home-invasion stake-out implicates Third Amendment? Allegations of possible violations of rights secured under the Third Amendment by two Nevada police departments caught our eye late last week. Yes that’s right, the one remaining right in the Bill of Rights not yet explicitly or implicitly “incorporated” in the Fourteenth Amendment to apply to state governments, and most insisted upon by pre-Revolutionary residents of Boston and | Read More » . . . → Read More: Only necessity defense may save Nevada police from home-invasion liability . . . → Read More: Only necessity defense may save Nevada police from home-invasion liability
