Otto Response

Earlier this morning, I wrote this post to highlight the fact that Rebecca Otto, Minnesota’s State Auditor, isn’t a constitutional scholar but that she is a sore loser. I quoted the ruling as saying “The Legislature has the power to modify the State Auditor’s duties under State ex rel. Mattson v. Kiedrowski. Modifying who does […]

Diskant v. SCOTUS precedent

Gregory Diskant’s op-ed is a display of some of the most warped thinking (if it rises to that level) I’ve seen. Diskant argues that it “is altogether proper to view a decision by the Senate not to act as a waiver of its right to provide advice and consent. A waiver is an intentional relinquishment […]

Homosexual agenda brings tyranny to Houston, TX

It was just a few days ago that I wrote about the tyranny Americans now live under from the judicial, executive, and legislative branches of the federal government. Now comes word of more tyrannical behavior by the government from Houston, TX. and the pro-homosexual city council and mayor. In a clear case of government bullying, the city of Houston has issued subpoenas to a group of pastors requesting any sermons they’ve written that cover the subject of homosexuality, gender identity, or mention of Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor. The subpoenas came after pastors protested against Houston’s new non-discrimination ordinance that the city council passed in June which, among other clauses related to sexuality and gender identity, would allow men to use the ladies room and vice versa in an effort to protect transgender rights, according to Fox News. As we saw in my previous piece, tyrannical behavior has come to us from many angles, but an interesting amount of it now comes to us courtesy of the homosexual agenda and the Constitutionally-protected right to religious freedom. As I documented in another article I wrote, when openly homosexual football player, Michael Sam, was in the news, this is an unavoidable situation: “The […]

Tyranny: The new normal

Last week, the government released employment data that showed a drop in unemployment even though the economy remained weak and the country reached a record low labor participation rate. As the left-wing grapples with this disparity between statistics and reality, they have come to adopt an interesting term to describe this failure. They call it the new norm, which has become a way to provide cover for their failed policies while making it sound like it’s not their fault. I’m sure you remember how they did the same thing when Bush was president, right? Of course you don’t. This “new norm” has become a way of telling America to simply accept things as they are because it’s normal. Unfortunately, the new norm has begun to show itself in other areas. Recently, the Supreme Court decided not to decide (which is deciding) on the issue of state’s rights—specifically, the right of the states (i.e. the people) to establish the boundaries on what is considered marriage—when they elected to ignore the appeals of several states that had their laws on the issue overturned by activist judges in several lower courts. Whether you agree with this decision or not—and for that matter, whether you support homosexual marriage or not—really […]

Sloppy assumptions, bad laws

The whining on the left hasn’t stopped since the DC Circuit Court’s ruling on Halbig v. Burwell. This article is a perfect example of the Left’s whining: The Affordable Care Act was designed to offer premium tax credits (subsidies) to people to purchase private health insurance on government-run exchanges — at least those earning up […]

Thus speaketh the emperor

When it comes to presidential arrogance, President Obama sits atop Mount Olympus. After the Supreme Court slapped him down on making resource appointments, DC pundits speculated whether President Obama would display a little humility. I knew that he isn’t given to humility. Further, I know that he doesn’t give a damn about the Constitution. This […]

Schumer: What Constitution?

It isn’t surprising that Sen. Schumer thinks the Constitution should be ignored when it inconveniences President Obama and Democrats. Thankfully, former NY Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey isn’t letting Sen. Schumer’s bad behavior off the hook. Here’s the opening sentence to her article: Last Sunday on Meet the Press, Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York announced […] . . . → Read More: Schumer: What Constitution? . . . → Read More: Schumer: What Constitution?
