The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 on June 27 that a school district in Washington state violated First Amendment religious freedom protections when it fired high school football coach Joseph Kennedy for leading personal prayers at the 50-yard line after games.
The decision is regarded as a victory for religious freedom.
In the case, the high court held that the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment protect an individual engaging in a personal religious observance from government reprisal.
The court found that the U.S. Constitution neither requires nor allows governments to suppress such religious expression.
Coach Joseph “Joe” Kennedy, who no longer works for the taxpayer-funded Bremerton School District in Washington state, claimed his rights were violated when the district forbade him from praying in view of the public after games.
The school district argued that when Kennedy prayed midfield after games, he was viewed by onlookers as a coach who was serving as a mentor and role model.
In this theory of the case, Kennedy was acting as a government employee at that moment, which would mean that he was engaging in speech that constituted government speech that isn’t protected by the First Amendment.
But the majority of Supreme Court justices disagreed with the school district in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District (court file 21-418), an appeal from the frequently overturned U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.
Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote the majority opinion (pdf) for the court. All six conservative justices, including Gorsuch, ruled in favor of Kennedy; all three liberal justices ruled against him. Oral argument was heard April 25.
Gorsuch noted that Kennedy lost his job as a high school football coach in the Bremerton School District “because he knelt at midfield after games to offer a quiet prayer of thanks” during a period “when school employees were free to speak with a friend, call for a reservation at a restaurant, check email, or attend to other personal matters.”
In other words, Kennedy offered “his prayers quietly while his students were otherwise occupied.”
The school district disciplined him because it believed anything less might lead a reasonable observer to mistakenly conclude that it endorsed Kennedy’s religious beliefs, Gorsuch wrote.
The district was wrong to do so, the justice added.
“The Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment protect expressions like Mr. Kennedy’s. Nor does a proper understanding of the Amendment’s Establishment Clause require the government to single out private religious speech for special disfavor.
“The Constitution and the best of our traditions counsel mutual respect and tolerance, not censorship and suppression, for religious and nonreligious views alike,” Gorsuch wrote.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor filed a dissenting opinion, which was joined by Justices Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan. The dissent characterizes Kennedy as a wrongdoer.
“This case is about whether a public school must permit a school official to kneel, bow his head, and say a prayer at the center of a school event,” Sotomayor wrote. “The Constitution does not authorize, let alone require, public schools to embrace this conduct.”
The Supreme Court is wrong to ignore “the severe disruption to school events caused by Kennedy’s conduct, viewing it as irrelevant because the Bremerton School District … stated that it was suspending Kennedy to avoid it being viewed as endorsing religion.”
Kennedy was responsible for “repeated disruptions of school programming and violations of school policy regarding public access to the field as grounds for suspending him.”
“This decision does a disservice to schools and the young citizens they serve, as well as to our nation’s longstanding commitment to the separation of church and state.”
The Supreme Court issued three opinions in total in already argued cases on June 27.
The court is trying to dispose of a backlog of cases before it leaves for summer recess. With the release of the three opinions, four remain to be released in the court’s current term.
When it wraps up, Justice Breyer is expected to formally leave the court and be replaced by Ketanji Brown Jackson, President Joe Biden’s nominee who was narrowly confirmed by the U.S. Senate on April 7.
On June 27, the court announced it will next issue opinions on June 29.
This is a developing story. This article will be updated.

The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Joseph Kennedy [Full Ruling Here] saying the Bremerton school district in Washington state was wrong to fire him for praying after football games with players of both teams. By a vote of 6-3, the justices ruled that Coach Joseph Kennedy’s conduct was protected by the First Amendment.
In 2015, Kennedy had been a part-time football coach at Bremerton High School for seven years. Coach Kennedy would pray at midfield after each game, alone, with players and with players of the opposing team joining him. When the school district learned about Kennedy’s prayers, they told him to stop. Kennedy refused, and despite wide support from parents and the community the district fired him.
Justice Neil Gorsuch delivered the court’s opinion and was joined in full by Chief Justice John Roberts, Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh. Gorsuch explained that the government’s only real justification for its decision to fire Kennedy “rested on a mistaken view that it had a duty to ferret out and suppress religious observances even as it allows comparable secular speech. The Constitution,” Gorsuch concluded, “neither mandates nor tolerates that kind of discrimination.”
(Via Christian Post) […] “Kennedy prayed during a period when school employees were free to speak with a friend, call for a reservation at a restaurant, check email, or attend to other personal matters. He offered his prayers quietly while his students were otherwise occupied. Still, the Bremerton School District disciplined him anyway,” wrote Gorsuch.
“Both the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment protect expressions like Mr. Kennedy’s … The Constitution and the best of our traditions counsel mutual respect and tolerance, not censorship and suppression, for religious and nonreligious views alike.”
In response to today’s opinion, Kennedy said, “This is just so awesome. All I’ve ever wanted was to be back on the field with my guys. I am incredibly grateful to the Supreme Court, my fantastic legal team, and everyone who has supported us. I thank God for answering our prayers and sustaining my family through this long battle.”
Kelly Shackelford, president, CEO and chief counsel for First Liberty, a religious liberty law firm based in Plano, Texas, which represented Kennedy, hailed the court’s decision as a “tremendous victory for Coach Kennedy and religious liberty for all Americans.” (more)
“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
“Will you pray with me?” or “will you allow me to pray with you?” These are examples of the strongest proactive affirmations of fellowship, love and faith you can bring to any encounter. Prayer works. However, it is not enough to simply to stop and pray, we should immediately affirm the intent of the moment. We should pause, gather or assemble, and pray in His name. That is where the Spirit of Jesus will manifest. Seek to gather with others in the name of Jesus and experience His presence in the moments of life.
Fellowship is important. There are many biblical commands concerning “one another” because God does not want us to be alone. Isolation and/or aloneness is not living, it can be painful and harmful to our spirit. Burdens weight most when carried alone. Fellowship is the connective tissue that brings life to our journey. When you feel hardship, pray. When you see hardship, pray. When you find hardship in another, pray.
There is no level of experience needed for prayer, nor is there an apprenticeship for faith. While living, pay attention. When you see a burden reach out, feel, connect, and begin… “Dear God,”….. the rest will follow.
That made me think of a conversation Jesus had with Nicodemus, a Sanhedrin (the group that convinced Pilot to Crucify Jesus – I suspect old Nick was a nay vote) – John 3: 12-21 NKJV:
12 If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? 13 No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man [a]who is in heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should [b]not perish but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
And then I ran into a Rob Pue opinion piece that provides his view these vile days came to be. Pue’s summation is hardly exhaustive and yet extremely accurate. Pue’s title – “A Great Time to Invest in Millstones” – made me think of a teaching moment Jesus had with His Disciples which I extract from Luke 17: 1-4 NKJV:
17 1Then He said to the disciples, “It is impossible that no [a]offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they do come! 2 It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should [b]offend one of these little ones. 3 Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins [c]against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. 4 And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns [d]to you, saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him.”
My dear Christian friend, CFP reader Maria Kneas worries that the sign ‘Women Want Roe V. Wade NOT JESUS’ seen carried by pro-abortion protesters in the aftermath of the Roe V. Wade SCOTUS decision could become the ‘Sign of our Times’.
It should go without saying that the devil’s demons out on the street can, with the help of BLM and Antifa activists, burn down pregnancy centers, but cannot possibly incinerate the faith of humanity in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
It takes a certain kind of conceit to attach to women in the collective a claim that “WOMEN “want Roe V Wade “Not Jesus”.
It’s a corrosive and demonic kind of conceit that puts the “Me, Me, ME” attitude first and foremost, above the lives of innocent babes in the womb.
The conceit of the hordes hoisting the ‘Women Want Want Roe V. Wade NOT JESUS’ reminds me of the conceit of their main leader, the loud and lamentable shrieker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), who tweeted out this message:
“Not every Democrat is pro-choice…we really need to reassess if it’s appropriate for them to serve.”
In other words, it’s the appalling conceit of AOC, who takes it upon herself to ignore the millions of votes that elected anti-abortion members of Congress!
Who is this Democrat Rep Squad Leader to cancel the votes of Americans?
AOC, who went from dancing and acting stints to bartending before seeking public office, knows that the legacy media will support her every publicity stunt, no matter how histrionic or self-serving.
Before suggesting to cancel the votes of millions of Americans, she told the world through the media that she and her significant other could not afford to raise a family on her $174G annual congressional salary. (Fox News)
AOC calls serving the public a “job”.
This is the same AOC whose salary paid for a Florida vacation last winter where she accused Republicans of having sexual designs on her; the same AOC who forks over $25 for each tube of her signature crimson lipstick.
It’s not anti-abortion Democrats who “really need” to be reassessed if it’s appropriate for them to serve, but how it is that Marxist baggage like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez get themselves elected!
Meanwhile, the toxic sign reading ‘Women Want Roe V. Wade NOT JESUS’ will NEVER make it to ‘Sign of Our Times’ status, a place already held firmly by ‘Victory for Life!’, as of June 24, 2022!
And Christians the world over know that ‘Victory for Life!’ took place on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
“24 June would have been the 98th birthday of Nellie Gray, the long-time pro-life activist who popularized the term “pro-life” and who founded the March For Life for the overturning of Roe v. Wade.”

With Joe Biden in the White House, after the most fraudulent election in our nation’s history, America is now in the midst of “building back better.” How are you liking it so far? First of all, you should understand that while Biden may be allowed in the White House, he is far from being in charge of anything. He’s a puppet of the Leftist/Marxist/Communist handlers that placed him there in the first place, to utterly destroy America from within.
Secondly, there would have been no need to “build back better” if the country had not first been burnt down and destroyed in the years prior to the stolen election, under the guise of COVID, orchestrated “race wars,” and the BLM and ANTIFA riots that went unprosecuted. Also, understand that “build back better” is simply code for “Communism.” That’s the ultimate goal, but American sovereignty must be eliminated and America must first be completely destroyed. Then, a true One World Government can commence under a true New World Order. A big part of that is killing the American dollar, which is happening now. They want us all in bread lines, dependent upon the Almighty Government for handouts. A record number of millions of Americans are being “groomed” to expect handouts now, as “entitlements.”
Today, we’re facing the highest prices for essential goods and services than ever before. Part of this is due to the purposely-orchestrated hyperinflation that’s begun — but we ain’t seen nothin’ yet, folks. If you think $5 at the gas pump is tough, wait until you’re paying $10, gas is rationed and people are trading their “carbon credits” just to be allowed the privilege of buying more.
And while the supply chain shortage is real, I find it strange that internal combustion car makers cannot produce cars because they can’t get the needed computer chips; but electric car makers, like Tesla, don’t seem to have that problem. Do you see how everything is being manipulated to control our behavior?
We’re also seeing a massive food shortage on the horizon. This, too, is orchestrated by those who’ve seized power over our nation. Some of you may be aware of the 20 food processing facilities in the US that have been destroyed or badly damaged just in the last six months. But as the Gateway Pundit recently reported, there have actually been 97 American food plants destroyed since Biden took the White House. The destruction has been due to “accidental fires,” “unknown causes” and in at least two instances, airplanes crashing into them. You can find the complete list at TheGatewayPundit.com. The article was published June 11.
Things have been moving quickly this year. Most people finally woke up to the scam known as COVID. They’d had enough and were no longer willing to comply with ridiculous government and health mandates. So the next boogeyman was the Russia/Ukraine conflict. Don’t believe everything you’re told about that — there’s much more there than we understand. Ukraine is the epicenter of corruption for the Global Elites, and the headquarters for massive money laundering by governments and corrupt rulers worldwide. Just because the mainstream media makes Russia the “bad guy,” don’t believe it. In fact, whatever the mainstream media is pushing as the “latest thing” should automatically be suspect by any thinking individual. But the Ukraine/Russia scare has faded from our TV screens, so another horror was needed to keep us compliant and fearful.
Many of you already know that in November of 2021, a “study” was done to simulate the effects of a worldwide pandemic — of “Monkeypox.” In this fictional table-top exercise, the outbreak was to begin on May 15th of this year. Interestingly, the first case in the world was reported May 7th and by the 22nd, 14 nations had confirmed outbreaks. But on May 20th the Biden regime announced it had already ordered 13 million doses of a Monkeypox “vaccine.” Interesting how a so-called “vaccine” for this was already supposedly researched, tested and produced to the tune of millions of vials — and billions of dollars, just in time for the planned outbreak. Eerily similar to Event 201, which simulated the COVID scam-demic a few months before it was unleashed on the world.
Monkeypox, by the way, is rare and primarily transmitted by sodomite males, but multiple sources are now speculating that this particular strain of the virus has been weaponized in bio-labs in China and elsewhere, to spread more quickly and cause more harm.
Meanwhile, in Australia, health officials are baffled by what they’re now calling “Sudden Adult Death Syndrome” and they’re urging individuals under 40 to get their hearts checked, because so many young people are suddenly dying of this mysterious Syndrome, as the doctors scratch their heads and can’t figure out what’s causing it. Note that this is Australia, where nearly 100% of the population has received two or more doses of the COVID jab, which is known to have 1291 adverse side effects, many of which affect the heart. All over the world young people, including many young athletes, previously in peak health, have just suddenly died. But these facts are now considered “disinformation” by the Globalist’s “Ministry of Truth.”
We all know that our US military was purged of patriots under the Obama administration, and under the current regime, it’s been further weakened by forcing experimental DNA-altering jabs and the further embracing of the sodomite/transgender agenda. Are you aware that a record number of young servicemen have suddenly died for no apparent reason after taking these shots? All in their 20s or 30s, dead from “undetermined” causes, after being discovered “unresponsive” in their bunks. I’m sure the total number of dead will never be known, as the powers-that-be continue to hide the evidence.
You should also be aware that more than 10,000 cases filed on the VAERS report data base were just recently deleted by the CDC. VAERS, which stands for “Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System” falls woefully short of covering all the cases of injuries and deaths to begin with — because the vast majority are never reported. Some say the number of actual cases is 100 times greater than the number actually reported. Still, VAERS does admit to 1.2 million COVID jab injuries, and 27,000 deaths. The actual number is enormously greater.
Researchers have also now linked a new type of fatal degenerative brain disorder with the COVID jab. The first symptoms occur about 11 days after the jab and death follows four months later. And in March, it was reported that in the UK, 9 out of 10 COVID deaths have occurred in fully-jabbed people. Studies have also shown that the MAJORITY of pregnant women worldwide who were jabbed, had miscarriages or stillborn babies. Still the FDA is pushing for approval of the COVID jab for all newborns and toddlers, under an “Emergency Use Authorization.” My question is, where’s the “emergency?” Where are all the deathly-ill children with COVID? The answer is, they don’t exist. But a world-wide de-population program does.
But people are starting to catch on. Hospitals, pharmacies and state governments in the US have thrown away at least 15 million doses of the Pfizer jab in the last three months, because nobody wants it. So… cue the Monkeypox scare!
But now, here we are in the midst of “Pride” month — although this isn’t just for the month of June — “Pride” celebrations, parades and festivals go right through to the beginning of the cold winter months now. And the LGBTQP+ agenda never, ever stops. Who would have ever thought we would get to this point in this country?
Everywhere we go, the rainbow flag is flying. Most people couldn’t care less. But most are truly unaware and ignorant of the evil this flag — and the movement behind it — represents. Let me give you some history. The first rainbow flag was commissioned in 1978 by Harvey Milk, who was dishonorably discharged from the US Navy for his homosexual antics in 1955. Milk was the first openly-homosexual elected official in the US, serving 11 months as a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. His rainbow flag was to be a symbol of “pride” for the homosexual community.
In 2014, the US Postal Service released a postage stamp honoring Harvey Milk. There’s also an airport terminal at San Francisco International Airport named after him. And just this past November, a now “woke” US Navy named one of its new ships after him. The ship was christened by a Navy veteran who identifies as ‘transgender.’ Harvey Milk is considered a hero in the homosexual community — but his actual history is very telling of the intentions of the homosexual movement. He was also a known pedophile, though he was never prosecuted for it. It’s widely understood that throughout his adult life, he repeatedly raped multiple young boys. One, in particular, he enticed to run away from home in Maryland. This young man eventually committed suicide. Another, he enticed to run away from home in Minnesota and not tell his parents. This boy’s parents did find out and they filed a complaint, but Milk was never questioned, arrested or charged. His homosexual relationships with young boys were numerous — and this was the lifestyle of this “civil rights leader.”
The ultimate goal of the homosexual movement is to lure, entice and groom little children, to twist their minds, rape their bodies and destroy their souls. You can research a document from 1987 entitled “The Gay Revolutionary,”and specifically, “The Homosexual Agenda.” I will quote the first paragraph of that here:
“We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all-male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us.” [Emphasis Blog Editor’s]
And so here we are. Christians, Conservatives and Patriots did nothing, while the homosexual mob continued steadily forward with their agenda. First it was “Drag Queen Story Time” where pedophiles would dress up in womens’ clothing, dance and gyrate sexually in front of toddlers and young children in public libraries — and the parents would take them there. Now these events have moved to public schools as well — and “Drag Queen” contests are held in bars and strip clubs — certainly places that would normally be off-limits to minors. But little children — pre-school children — are now taken there by their parents to watch and participate in these demonic activities.
California Senator Scott Wiener recently began promoting a bill that would make it mandatory for K-12 students to take a curriculum called “Drag Queen 101.” In Colorado, a 12-year-old girl was invited to an after-school “art club” that turned out to be a meeting of the school’s “Genders & Sexualities Alliance Club,” dedicated to supporting homosexuality and transgenderism. The kids who attended the meeting were told not to tell their parents what was discussed there and that their family homes may not be “safe places.” That one meeting included enough brainwashing to confuse this 12-year-old about her sexuality and create “gender dysphoria.” [Emphasis Blog Editor’s] According to her mother, it took months of counseling to end the nightmares she suffered and the sexual confusion she endured after her teacher told her she must be “queer.”
This is happening in our public schools, and parents are often kept in the dark, as teachers tell the kids to keep their secret, even as they’re purposely grooming them for sexual confusion and exploitation — from pre-school age on up. These are the people who now seem to OWN our children’s minds. Parents who attend school board meetings to voice their concerns are arrested as “domestic terrorists.” Harvey Milk would be proud, indeed.
Today the number of young people who “identify” as “LGBTQP+” has skyrocketed. The “transgender” movement is huge in every area of society and culture — and pushed especially hard in the public schools. Also today, 76% of so-called “Bible-believing, church-attending Christians” now affirm that same-sex “marriage” is just another “alternative lifestyle” and perfectly acceptable, and just fine with God. I have a Bible too, and I’m pretty sure God would not agree. In fact, with America’s economy now in self-destruct mode, it might be a great time to start investing in millstones.

I’m not sure how much sharing of something I’m sure every God-Fearing Christian American is aware of, AND YET Leftist Judicial Activism has been OVERTURNED by Judicial Constitutionalism! TODAY, ROE v. WADE IS DEAD. Now voters in each State will be accountable if Baby-Killing continues.
There are predictions of Leftists beginning “Days of Rage” which I have no doubt will again be MSM propagandized as mostly peaceful protests while actual peaceful J6 Protesters are Political Prisoners of the Dementia Biden Regime. It’s good thing SCOTUS also affirmed 2nd Amendment Rights to overcome Leftist violence.
Now the cross posts.

After weeks of anticipation and much speculation, today pro-lifers across the globe received news of a 6-3 majority pro-life decision in the U.S. Supreme Court case Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. LifeSiteNews’ Jim Hale and Doug Mainwaring were on the ground to capture the spectacular moment the judgment was announced and pro-lifers celebrated the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
Fifty years of blood, sweat and prayers, often watered with tears for the 63 million little victims, has ended in a decisive victory for pro-life Americans today. In a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court of the Unites States of America has overturned Roe v. Wade.
With that decision, the federal government no longer has any role to play in the abortion issue. Yes, Joe Biden can issue any executive orders he wants, but the states controlled by Republicans can simply thumb their nose at the madman in the White House and ban the butchering of babies.
It was particularly refreshing to see how many young people in their teens, 20s and 30s were gathered outside the Supreme Court today, celebrating this historic moment. From the pictures I saw, the vast majority were under 40.
I would be remiss, however, if I did not send out warnings of things to come. Don’t be naive and think that the other side is going to lie down now and accept this defeat.
They will not. One thing about any Marxist/communist movement: They never cede back conquered territory. Abortion on demand has become a sacred right — for some it’s even a religious rite — to those on the left, both men and women who want to have sex without any thought of the consequences.
We are about to see what the face of evil really looks like. Here’s what to expect.
Their leaders will call out the shock troops and have them unleash the demonic force of violence that they so feverishly believe in.
We will see boycotts against states that stand up for life. Organizations like the NCAA and the National Football League will likely refuse to play games in states where abortion is made illegal. Certain major corporations will refuse to do business in the pro-life states.
But there’s more we need to be aware of.
Remember this: Only a violent people could accept the murder of babies.
If they were OK with killing the most innocent among us, do you think they will lose a night’s sleep over killing those who made today’s decision possible? Those who fought on the front lines all these years, who prayed out in front of abortion clinics, who counseled pregnant teens to keep their babies and not kill them?
These are the same people who now want to shoot up 6-month-old infants with a toxic mRNA concoction that will kill off a percentage of our youngest generation and sterilize those who manage to survive the endless shots.
If they would do this to babies in the womb and children in their first few years of life, what do you think they will do to you?
These vicious adversaries will now unleash hell’s fury against pro-lifers, and pro-life Christians in particular.
We are about to find out who the real Christians are and who among us were just playing Church.
Why do I say that?
Because for the first time in American history, Christians will be forced to stand on an entirely Christian principle — LIFE — which could actually get them beaten, spat upon, even killed. Just like Christ himself and his apostles were spat upon, beaten and killed.
Every church must prepare now to harden their church doors.
Every pastor and every lay leader must meet together and come up with a plan to protect not just the church building, for buildings will be torched, but more importantly the worshipers, parishioners and congregants.
Even some liberal churches will be attacked, because many of these crazies who answer to aparachiks like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and AOC, will go on discriminant burning, looting and killing sprees. I believe it will start this weekend and who knows how long it will last.
Even within certain churches we will see turbulence, chaos and potential violent attacks by liberal church members against their conservative pro-life brethren.
We must be on a heightened state of alert. Be aware of your surroundings at all times if you are out in public, especially in larger Democrat-run cities. Better yet, stay out of those cities at least until we see where this is heading.
Something you may not even think about, like a Christian bumper sticker, T-shirt slogan or anything could trigger someone under the spell of demonic inspiration to attack you. It could happen at a restaurant, a grocery store, a gas station, anywhere.
I know people are going to say, Leo, why must you always be the “glass is half empty” messenger of gloom and doom.
I don’t relish that role.
When I heard the news this morning about the Supreme Court’s decision, it affected me emotionally like I did not expect it would. I was overcome with joy.
We all knew the decision was coming because it was leaked more than a month ago. Still, when it came down, I felt emotional. My eyes filled up with water. I am so happy that these six justices not only understood the Constitution but had the courage to put their understanding down on paper in the form of a Supreme Court opinion. Thank God for Justices Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, Barrett, Kavanaugh and, yes, even John Roberts. A 6-3 decision is much better even than a 5-4 decision. It sends a more resounding message to the nation and to the world. The “right” to murder your baby is no longer the law of the land. Of course no such right ever existed in the U.S. Constitution. It was fabricated out of thin air. The states are now in control of this issue and nearly half will no doubt still allow abortion to be carried out, business as usual.
But in the other half of the states, sanity and common decency will return. Praise the Lord God Almighty, now and and forever!
My only word of caution is for you, my dear readers, to realize that you are now a target of the evil ones. They are violent and they are merciless and they don’t play fairly. We are all targets now. God be with us. Amen.

Then as a bonus I share Parts One & Two of Rudy Giuliani interviewing John Solomon on the exposed election crimes STILL not prosecuted by Courts due to the idiocy to refuse recognize Standing when the Merits of Fraud existed. ERGO, if you hear or read that not one Court was presented evidence it is because every single Court refused the evidence telling the presenters they did not have Standing to present EVIDENCE.
That is when I became convinced that not only a corrupt bureaucracy exists in the Executive and Legislative Branch, but ALSO the Judicial Branch is compromised with corruption. The Founders’ Constitutional concept of Checks and Balances to protect We The People thus was shredded.

FOR THE LAST 16 MONTHS THE FAKE CONSERVATIVE GRIFTERS WHO RUN FOX NEWS DEEMED THAT NO ELECTION FRAUD TOOK PLACE IN 2020 AND THEY OUTLAWED ANY DISCUSSION OF THE SUBJECT ON AIR.
THEY DID SO BECAUSE FOX NEWS WAS DEEPLY INVOLVED IN CALLING ARIZONA EARLY AND THROWING THE ELECTION TO JOE BIDEN – AS WE ALL KNOW.
WE DON’T EVEN HAVE TIME TO LIST ALL THE WAYS THAT FOX NEWS BETRAYED THE CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT IN THE LAST THREE YEARS.
BUT LET’S TRY ANYWAY.
FIRST, FOX NEWS HIRED A DEMOCRAT OPERATIVE NAMED ARNIE MISHKIN TO RUN THEIR 2020 ELECTION DESK. THIS WOULD BE LIKE CNN HIRING KARL ROVE TO RUN THEIR ELECTION COVERAGE. ARNIE MISHKIN DID WHAT HE WAS HIRED TO DO AND PROMPTLY CALLED ARIZONA EARLY FOR BIDEN. HE WAS THEN FIRED AFTER THE ELECTION.
THE PART YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED IS THAT FOX NEWS HAS HIRED HIM AGAIN TO RUN THEIR COVERAGE FOR THE 2022 MIDTERMS!
THEN FOX CANCELED LOU DOBBS RIGHT AFTER THE 2020 ELECTION BECAUSE DOBBS WOULDN’T STOP TALKING ABOUT ELECTION FRAUD. DOBBS HAD THE HIGHEST RATED SHOW ON THEIR BUSINESS CHANNEL TOO. FOX CANCELED DOBBS SO QUICKLY THAT IT DIDN’T EVEN HAVE A SHOW TO REPLACE HIM WITH READY TO GO!
THEN FOX NEWS BLACKLISTED RUDY GIULIANI FROM THEIR NETWORK BECAUSE GIULIANI WAS ONE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S LAWYERS AND HE WAS STILL TALKING ABOUT ELECTION FRAUD TOO.
THEN THE OWNER OF FOX NEWS RUPERT MURDOCH GOT UP AT A FOX SHAREHOLDER MEETING AND TOLD EVERYONE THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP SHOULD STOP TALKING ABOUT ELECTION FRAUD.
THEN JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO FOX NEWS WAS NAMED AS ONE OF THE CORPORATE MEDIA OUTLETS THAT TOOK MONEY FROM THE BIDEN REGIME TO PUSH THE DEADLY COVID VACCINES ON ITS AUDIENCE WITH DISCLOSING TO THE PUBLIC THAT THEY WERE TAKING ANY MONEY AT ALL.
AND THEN JUST A FEW DAYS AGO FOX NEWS HIRED A MAN PRETENDING TO BE A WOMAN TO BE A CONTRIBUTOR. THIS NEW CONTRIBUTOR MADE A NAME FOR HIMSELF BECAUSE AT ONE TIME HE THOUGHT IT WAS A GREAT IDEA TO MARRY INTO THE KARDASHIAN FAMILY.
DOES THAT SOUND CONSERVATIVE TO YOU?
WHICH BRING US TO THIS WEEK. SUDDENLY FOX NEWS HAS STARTED ALLOWING THEIR ANCHORS TO DISCUSS ELECTION FRAUD.
WHY IS THAT? WHAT HAPPENED? WHAT CHANGED?
ONE THING THAT HAS FOX NEWS WORRIED IS A NEW DOCUMENTARY ON THE 2020 STOLEN ELECTION CALLED “RIGGED.” THE FILM WAS PRODUCED BY TRUMP ADVISOR DAVID BOSSIE AND IT COMES OUT TOMORROW.
FOX NEWS WAS WORRIED THAT AFTER THIS NEW DOCUMENTARY COMES OUT IT WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE TO CONTINUE TO IGNORE THE STOLEN ELECTION. FOX NEWS IS ALSO WORRIED ABOUT THE NEW DETAILS EMERGING FROM GEORGIA AND WISCONSIN THAT WILL MAKE THEIR SILENCE LOOK EVEN MORE FOOLISH.
IN OTHER WORDS: FOX NEWS LOST.
FOX NEWS WANTED TRUMP TO LOSE. THE PEOPLE WHO OWN AND OPERATE FOX ARE ON THE RECORD ADMITTING THIS. THEY COLLABORATED WITH DEMOCRATS TO ELECT BIDEN.
THEN THEY INSULTED THEIR OWN VIEWERS FOR ALMOST TWO YEARS BY CLAIMING ELECTION FRAUD WAS AN ILLUSION.
AND NOW THEY ARE GOING TO COVER ELECTION FRAUD WHILE PRETENDING THAT THEY DIDN’T GASLIGHT YOU FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS.
The corporate media is completely corrupt. They just got exposed for taking the Biden regime’s money to push the deadly vaccines on your family without disclosing it! There’s a word for that — and the word is: propaganda.
If we are going to survive the current regime then we must stand together.
BUT that is another story/post. Justin Smith is looking to American Patriots willing to withstand tyranny inflicted on Americans. In this case the mounting evidence still pooh-poohed by Dem-Marxists, RINOs and status quo Establishment Republicans (YOU MUST question Establishment motives accepting criminal elections!).

Election 2020: A Pathetic State of Affairs
Donald J. Trump: Still the Only Legitimate U.S. President – Reject Your Milksop Politicians and Betrayers

“This is no small thing, to restore a republic after it has fallen into corruption. I have studied history for years and I cannot recall it ever happening. It may be that our task is impossible. Yet, if we do not try then how will we know it can’t be done? … The Founders’ Republic and the larger war for western civilization will be lost. — But … We will not go gently into that bloody collectivist good night. ...” ~ Mike Vanderboegh, December 1st 2008 [Justin quoting a Survival Blog post – dated 7/27/16 posted by James Wesley Rawles]
America needs Her warriors to arise and fight for Her today, now, this very moment. She’s had enough weak-kneed feckless milksop politicians and backstabbers and betrayers to do Her for as long as Her land remains.
Now, the rift between President Donald Trump and Mike Pence over the election results has flared anew. Trump recently noted reasserted (on January 30th 2022) that Pence actually did have “the right to change the election results”, as he argued a thought-provoking, pertinent and valid point:
“If the Vice President had ‘absolutely no right’ to change the Presidential Election results in the Senate, despite fraud and many irregularities, how come the Democrats and RINO Republicans, like Wacky Susan Collins, are desperately trying to pass legislation that will not allow the Vice President to change the results of the election?”
“So pathetic to watch the Unselect Committee of political hacks, liars, and traitors work so feverishly to alter the Electoral College Act so that a Vice President cannot ensure the honest results of the election. The Unselect Committee should be investigating why Nancy Pelosi did such a poor job of overseeing security and why Mike Pence did not send back the votes for recertification or approval, in that it has now been shown that he clearly had the right to do so!”
If you know me personally, or have followed my writing for very long, you already know that I’m not exactly a huge fan of President Trump for a good many reasons … BUT …
President Trump won eighteen of nineteen counties in the country that have historically ultimately had their election results align with the winner of the presidential election, and he won ninety-four percent of primary’s share of the votes. In contrast, Biden was soundly defeated in regions that typically reveal how well a candidate might do in the actual election, losing Iowa, Nevada and New Hampshire, while Kamala dropped out before the first vote was cast, after viewing the dismal reports on her viability and popularity as a candidate. Taken with the fact that Trump increased his vote numbers significantly from 2016 to 2020, it’s more than probable that he actually did win the election.
‘National Election Fraud: Evidence of Chicanery During America’s 2020 Presidential Elections’ by Sam Jacobs appeared in several publications sometime after its initial release on November 13th 2020, and it detailed the massive voter fraud that had occurred. In part, he noted that 353 counties across twenty-nine states had turnout exceeding 100 percent of registered voters, with Vermont, Colorado, Alaska, Rhode Island, Maine, Maryland, Michigan and New Jersey exceeding 100 percent across the entire state. Whistleblowers were also coming forward to expose the backdating of ballots.
“I am personally convinced that the amount of fraud is vastly greater than anything we’ve seen so far, because … we’ve seen signs of it in at least one county in Michigan, and that is the fact that we have 28 states — including 10 of the swing states — that have had their vote counts tabulated in Barcelona, Spain, on servers and computer systems.”
Why are U.S. elections being tabulated by foreigners? That’s the million dollar question.
Jacobs also observed that tens of thousands of voters marked their ballots just for Joe Biden, with no votes cast for down ballot candidates. This was a concentrated 450,000 voters in a handful of swing states, such as Georgia, where a difference of only 818 votes existed between Trump and down-ticket Senate races. And the same irregularities popped up in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, Michigan and Wisconsin, where Biden allegedly surpassed Trump by anywhere from 42,000 to 115,000 votes, despite the down-ballot races suggesting otherwise. This reveals an incongruity and a statistical anomaly that most certainly is strong evidence of widespread fraud.
And who can ever forget that Conservative Republican poll watchers were often outright banned from the polls in heavily Democratic Party dominated districts, or at best, barely allowed inside and made to stand many yards away in the distance?
“We tracked 2,000 mules making multiple ballot drops, leaving no fingerprints, snapping photos to get paid, a coordinated ring of illegal vote harvesting in all the key states where the election was decided.”
[Blog Editor: Here is the trailer to the Documentary “2000 Mules” which evidently will also be a future book:
I mention all of this simply to highlight that at the time, there was enough real concern in many districts and states that illegal schemes and mechanisms had been utilized to steal the election, that those votes should not have been certified as “legal” or “legitimate” until a full investigation and audit had been conducted, by a team of men and women known to have the most impeccable character and integrity — studied people who would uncover the facts only, leaving the politics aside.
And finally, this brings me to the real story and the renewed uproar over whether or not Vice-President Mike Pence had the authority to “overturn the election”.
There isn’t one single person constitutionally authorized to overturn an election in the United States, and although Pence didn’t have that as an authority, he most certainly did have the duty to uphold the laws of the land, which most certainly includes states’ laws. Once it became apparent that the law had been violated to create an election environment certain to swing the election Biden’s way, just as seen in Pennsylvania, wherever any vile election fraud had been exposed, those places and their votes should have immediately been placed on hold, rather than to be sent on for certification.
Under the 12th Amendment, while it doesn’t specifically state the VP must check the legitimacy of each state’s electoral votes, it would seem only natural that this would be a part of the process. It’s purely asinine to suggest that the VP is to stand there and robotically make a straight count, whether those votes were gained legally or illegally. That the count is done publicly indicates the Founders’ intent this was to act as a check on fraud; and the VP’s responsibility of counting the votes is certainly and most assuredly inextricably intertwined with the burden of judging the legitimacy of those votes.
To constrain the VP to only count the votes, illegal or not, in and of itself would be to act in an unconstitutional manner, since he would necessarily be rewarding criminal acts. And furthermore, Congress cannot use legislation, i.e. the Electoral Count Act, to dictate to any individual branch of government how it must execute it unique duties.
Pence could have just as easily decided to decide between the competing slates of electors chosen by state legislators and governors, or made a final decision on the contested votes.
If nothing else, when those illegally gained votes came before Pence to be counted on January 6th 2021, he most assuredly could have legally demanded that all the questioned votes in the seven swing states be returned to those states to be sorted out; he could have even cast them out altogether in Pennsylvania’s case, since the law had so obviously been violated. His sole job wasn’t merely to count the vote, treating the illegally gained electoral votes the same as legally cast votes.
Settling the contested 2020 election probably wouldn’t have been such a hard matter, if it hadn’t been Trump in the Oval Office, but so many from both sides of the aisle were bound and determined to remove him by hook and crook, and any way they could. The Court could have readily stepped in and settled it, just as they did in 2000 with the hanging chad controversy, but even though they were petitioned by President Donald J. Trump and his administration, which presented an abundance of facts and real evidence of criminal voter fraud, Chief Justice Roberts curled up like the coward he is, with his face in his skirts, and refused to even review the evidence, during one of the most critical times in American history, with the nation under a full blown assault from the Democratic Party Communists and their globalist allies.
Whatever the Court’s reasoning, they’ve only temporarily staved off the coming cataclysmic conflagration of civil war [Blog Editor: OR set the butterfly effect in motion to inflame a future civil conflagration], as this growing tyranny under Biden and Marx Inc forges ahead with its anti-American, anti-Founding agenda. Even though Republicans have successfully checked his illiberal moves to some degree so far, without the needed election fix ensuring the integrity of the voting results, the stage is being set to keep the Democratic Party Communists in power for the rest of this century. And civil war is preferable for many American Patriots rather than seeing their children and children’s children condemned to the cold chains of poverty and serfdom to a Socialist State.
“The evidence is so damning, what will the cowards who sat and did nothing about the stolen election say now? The way our votes were taken away is a disgrace to our Nation. It must be fixed.” ~ President Donald J. Trump, still the current and only legitimate President of the United States

Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Threatens Roe v. Wade
By Justin O. Smith
Sent 12/3/2021 11:14 AM
Murdering the Unborn Child is a practice as old as mankind itself, but that doesn’t make it a moral practice or something acceptable with any real justification. The Democratic Party’s century long advocacy and support for Baby-Murder doesn’t make it more palatable, since their reasons have long been based on premises beyond immoral, as they have yet to be able to acknowledge that an embryo is a living being, while they also have pulled a non-existent “right to abortion” from thin air, largely due to a January 22nd 1973 Supreme Court ruling on Roe v. Wade.
For all familiar with Christianity, in Jeremiah 1:5, God tells us all:
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet to the nations.”
On December 1st 2021, America witnessed arguments between the pro-death abortionists and the pro-life defenders of the Unborn Child unfold before the Supreme Court and a fight between evil and good, in the [JRH] Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case initiated in the wake of a Mississippi law that bans all abortions after fifteen weeks of pregnancy. It’s a case that threatens the continuation of Roe v. Wade as “settled law”, since a good bit of the conversation questioned the notion of stare decisis or precedent. Several cases of the Court reversing itself were scrutinized by attorneys and Justices alike, and the Court appears to be preparing to make a major change in its abortion jurisprudence, after several hours of closing arguments from the State of Mississippi and the Biden regime.
[Blog Editor: More Pro-Life slanted info on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization:
[Blog Editor: The Left has become so consumed with power and control that they LIE about their racist past (among other lies). I discovered in looking some of this stuff, the Left has made blatant effort to white-wash (funny term, right?) Sanger’s racist & eugenics (cough neo-Nazi) past. Here are some tidbits culminating with the white-wash exposé:
Due to the absence of any right to abortion in the U.S. Constitution and the many false assumptions and arbitrary reasoning used by the Court to establish said “right”, in all subsequent challenges that came before the Court over the decades, attorneys had to argue precedent since nothing exists in the actual body of the Constitution or any original understanding of it that suggested any right to an abortion. And unlike all other of our country’s healthcare questions, abortion has been removed, by and large, from any real due process of “the law” being applied under any existing U.S. code, essentially amounting to a construct of nine Supreme Court Justices that circumvented the will of the people in fifty states and the principles of our Founders.
If we’re going to debate precedents, shouldn’t we be reviewing our previous two centuries, when virtually every single state had laws banning all abortions?
A majority of America’s states had laws that criminalized abortion, by 1858. By the time the 14th Amendment was ratified in 1868, approximately three-quarters of our states had such statutes, and by 1883, every single state had laws that banned abortion. And regardless of how one interprets the 14th Amendment, while it may not protect the UnBorn Child from being aborted, it also most certainly doesn’t state that any woman has any right to murder her UnBorn Child in the womb.
When Elizabeth Prelogar, U.S. Solicitor General, fell back on the 14th Amendment argument, and as reported by Katie Pavlich at Townhall, Justice Clarence Thomas, normally one of the more quiet and reserved Justices, made the following observations and ended with a question, saying:
“If we are talking about the 2nd Amendment, I know exactly what we’re talking about. If we’re talking about the 4th Amendment, I know what we’re talking about, because it’s written. It’s there. What specifically is right here [in the 14th Amendment] that we’re talking about?“
When something isn’t specifically addressed by the Constitution, it must be left to the States, the people, to decide. And by the early 1970s, they were holding referendum elections and deciding, by in large, in favor of life which sparked the sort of judicial activism that led to Roe v. Wade and the subsequent defense of its lawless nature as “settled law”.
Nine Black Robes ruling that an embryo isn’t a “person” doesn’t make it so, unless one is a blathering idiot and a science denier, since life begins at conception. The measure of that UnBorn Child’s viability outside the womb is equally as capricious and arbitrary as the Court’s ruling that abortion is a right, especially after a 21 week old infant was helped to survive outside the womb last year, by remarkable advances in modern medicine. Life is life, and a life so innocent should be protected above all else.
And neither can anyone reasonably view the arguments of Julie Rikelman, attorney for the Center for Reproduction Rights, as any sound basis for going forward with Baby Murder as America’s status quo, as she stated:
“Two generations have now relied on this right. And one out of every four women makes the decision to end a pregnancy.”
So what is this? The “Everybody is doing it, so it must be right” perspective?
Rikelman also argued that Mississippi’s case was very similar to cases that have been previously rejected, stating Casey as her proof, and this prompted Justice Samuel Alito, a Conservative, to school the pro-death legal team by way of a question he posed to Elizabeth Prelogar, the U.S. Solicitor General, asking:
“Is it your argument that a case can never be overruled simply because it was egregiously wrong?”
“I think that, at the very least, the state would have to come forward with some kind of materially changed circumstance or some kind of materially new argument, and Mississippi hasn’t done so in this case.”
Shredding her argument, Alito then asked:
“So suppose Plessy v. Ferguson (an 1896 decision that affirmed the constitutionality of racial segregation laws) was reargued in 1897, so nothing had changed. Would it not be sufficient to say that was an egregiously wrong decision on the day it was handed down and now it should be overruled?“
Scott Stewart, Mississippi’s Solicitor General, told the Court that the legality of abortion was still an unsettled matter in America, forty-eight years after Roe. The primary premise he asserted was that matters of this importance affecting all Americans, in one way or another, must be settled by democratically elected state legislatures and the people with the most at stake, rather than the Court.
“Abortion is fundamentally different from any right this Court has ever endorsed. No other right involves, as abortion does, ‘the purposeful termination of a potential life’ … Roe broke from prior cases, Casey failed to rehabilitate it, and both recognize a right that has no basis in the Constitution.”
Shortly after Roe was delivered by the Court, John Hart Ely, a supporter of legalized abortion and a Harvard professor, wrote:
“Roe is bad … because it is not constitutional law and gives almost no sense of an obligation to try to be.”
Much of the precedence for our legal system emanates from English Common Law, and as such, one would be remiss if one didn’t mention that many early U.S. lawyers such as Louis Brandeis and Sam Warren relied heavily on English Common Law in 1890, when they wrote the Right to Privacy. They revealed that William Blackstone, an English legal scholar whose words shaped our Declaration of Independence, declared specific rights for the UnBorn Child, writing:
“Qui in utero, est pro jam nato habetur quoties de ejus commodo quaeritur: One who is in the womb is held as already born, whenever a question arises for its benefit.” (from page 105 of Black’s Law Dictionary) [Blog Editor: Black’s Law has gone through many editions since the original. Here’s a LINK to a PDF of the 6th Edition with a 1990 copyright. Here’s a link which cites the Latin and English used by Justin.]
An amicus brief filed with the Court in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization by Dr. Monique Chireau Wubbenhorst, an obstetrician, Dr. Colleen Malloy, a neonatologist, and Dr. Grazie Pozo Christie, a diagnostic radiologist, detail how far science has advanced in dealing with pregnancies, revealing that viability now stands at 21 weeks of gestation, and also noting at 12 weeks, the little human in the womb can feel “immediate and unreflective pain”. They further explain that the science now makes it possible to intervene and treat UnBorn Children in utero as early as 15 weeks gestation, and even at such an early stage, the human form of the child in the womb is undeniable.
The three female physicians suggest that since Casey doesn’t account for the very human aspects of the UnBorn Child and the pro-death camp is so reliant on stare decisis where Casey is concerned, the Conservative majority has the blueprints before it to reject viability as the primary motivating factor, as they consider their ruling on Dobbs. Only five Justices are needed to find that science and facts trump stare decisis, and the Supreme Court cannot hope to ever again hold any semblance of institutional integrity, if it persists in its denial of the humanity of the UnBorn Child.
During his testimony on May 17th 2012, Dr. Anthony Levatino told the House Judiciary Committee reviewing the District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 3803) about saving a woman’s life by “terminating her pregnancy” through a Cesarean section, that saved her life and allowed her and her baby to thrive afterwards. He noted that during his time at Albany Medical Center, he performed hundreds of similar procedures, and in all those cases, he didn’t have to kill one single UnBorn Child. (Dr. Levatino retells his story here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BaHQTdjo7Y.)
This show is a re-air of a program we did earlier this year with Dr. Anthony Levatino. Dr. Levatino performed over 1000 abortions before having a personal epiphany. In this interview he shares his journey and about the reality of what abortion is. Also joined in this interview is Ruth Shaw, the director of the National Campus Life Coalition.]
The Leftist pro-death camp can tout Baby-Murder as being in the interest of women’s health all they wish, but the facts and their own contradictions belie their assertions. Most pro-abortion state laws, such as one finds in New York and Virginia, allow non-physicians to perform abortions, as they dismiss research that reveals the physical and psychological damage women incur from abortions. They refuse to inform women about the risks associated with an abortion, and they do not counsel them on the option of adoption. These death cultists cloak their true agenda in the euphemism of “choice”.
The Baby-Murderers and the advocates of the Democratic Party’s Death Cult are hoping that Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh are liberal enough to betray traditional America once more and vote with Leftist Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Steven Breyer to keep America’s fundamental transformation on track, especially since Roberts has difficulty in doing anything that moves America too fast, even when the best path right in front of him is the most righteous path. But, it’s also worth recalling Roberts once wrote that, “We cannot embrace a narrow ground of decision simply because it is narrow; it must also be right”, in connection to the 2010 case of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission.
Roe’s Constitutional basis is already being questioned by several Justices who take exception with the all-encompassing privacy penumbra seen in Roe. Kavanaugh, ever ready to follow wherever Roberts goes, is also on the record in Ramos v. Louisiana (2020) that any precedent “grievously or egregiously wrong” must not be maintained by the Court.
In April 2020, as he agreed with the Court’s majority ruling, Kavanaugh wrote:
“The doctrine of stare decisis does not mean, of course, that the Court should never overrule erroneous precedents.”
Justice Clarence Thomas is the only Justice who has made no secret about his conviction that both Roe v. Wade and Casey should be overturned. It remains to be seen how many of his colleagues will join him in his honorable and righteous stand.
Most of America would welcome the reversal of the pro-abortion 1973 Supreme Court ruling that arbitrarily passed out a “right” to abortion for all women that wasn’t under its authority to grant, but the Far Left in the shadows of the halls of Planned Parenthood and the Democratic Party Communists are already crying bloody-murder from the steps of the Supreme Court over their perception of an attack on their cherished “long standing” legal precedent. However, they are quick to dismiss the two centuries of pro-life attitudes in America prior to Roe v. Wade, and since 1973, they have influenced an era in which over sixty-two million Baby-Murders (abortions) were rationalized and sanctioned through Leftist, activist courts and under a cloak of protection of “the law.”
Life is sacred and begins at conception, therefore the ethical question cannot logically reconcile the evil of an abortion of an “unwanted” pregnancy with the Hippocratic Oath of medical doctors or, more importantly, God’s Law. And yet, many who call themselves “pro-choice” oppose proposed rules that would show a woman an ultrasound of her UnBorn Child before a planned abortion; they oppose a 48 hour waiting period for this procedure. These pro-death advocates do not want parents of an underage girl notified before an abortion, and they argue that an embryo is not a person. Rather than pro-choice, these evil folks are pro-death.
This is the issue nationwide. Far too many Americans are not willing to acknowledge that sex between a man and a woman is a sacred matter ordained by God. They are not willing to admit that the product of such unions — a little vulnerable live baby — cannot and must not be taken away on a whim, due to the inconvenience it may cause them.
It is accurate to state that a newly created human being is human because it has its own very specific and unique DNA. Life begins at conception and any action that ends a human life is indisputably a homicide, no matter how funny, obtuse or disingenuous one attempts to be on the topic. UnBorn Children are not property or parasites to be discarded at will.

I live in Oklahoma. I grew up in Eastern Washington State (the side outnumbered Conservatives primarily reside). Because of where I grew up Oklahoma Summer humidity has often been an annual gripe for me. BUT TODAY I read my Americans For Limited Government email dated 11/29/21 which sends Daily Torch articles (not really certain of the connection). I wish AFLG sent this Daily Torch article dated 11/24/21 earlier. The title alone makes me care less about Oklahoma humidity: “OK state senator introduces ‘Kyle’s Law’ to hold ‘malicious’ prosecutors accountable.”
I need your generosity in 2021 via – credit cards, check cards
Oklahoma state Sen. Nathan Dahm has filed legislation to ensure Oklahomans who use self-defense won’t have to face trial for political reasons. Under Senate Bill 1120, victims of malicious prosecution would be able to receive compensation for expenses and damages.
Kyle Rittenhouse was recently acquitted of all charges in the deaths of two men and the wounding of a third during a protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin in 2020. Rittenhouse had claimed self-defense in the shootings.
“Kyle Rittenhouse should never have been charged. The video evidence from early on showed it was lawful self-defense,” Dahm said. “It is our duty to protect the rights of the people we represent, and the right to self-defense is paramount. This bill will ensure that what happened to Kyle Rittenhouse cannot happen to the people of Oklahoma.”
Under Dahm’s legislation, if a person is charged with murder but is found not guilty due to justifiable homicide, the state would have to reimburse the defendant for all reasonable costs, including loss of wages, legal fees incurred, and other expenses involved in their defense. When a homicide is determined to be justified and the accused establishes that they had sustained injury due to malicious prosecution, then that person will be awarded “fair and just compensation.”
SB 1120 further states that in order to support a claim of malicious prosecution, the claimant must establish that the prosecution was instituted or instigated by the prosecutor and was without probable cause; that the prosecution had legally and finally been terminated in favor of the claimant; and that as a result of the criminal prosecution, the claimant sustained injury.
Malice may be established if the motive for the prosecution was something other than a desire to bring an offender to justice, or that it was one with ill will or hatred, or willfully done in a wanton or oppressive manner and in conscious disregard of the claimant’s rights. Under the legislation, a prosecutor may be held personally liable to a claimant if malicious prosecution is established.
Americans for Limited Government President Richard Manning applauded Dahm’s efforts. “This is exactly why Justice Louis Brandeis called our states ‘laboratories of democracy,” Manning said. “If this measure passes and proves successful in protecting an individual’s right to self-defense in Oklahoma, it ought to be adopted in every state of the union, and at the federal level.”
Immediately following the Rittenhouse acquittal, Manning issued a statement in support of the verdict.
“Justice was served in the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse, breathing new life into the presumption of innocence and upholding the fundamental principle of the right to self defense,” Manning said. “The jury, which has been subject to death threats and intimidation, has proven they were willing to put that aside to uphold the American system of justice and the presumption of innocence. It is our prayer that they are left alone and able to return to their regular lives as unsung, anonymous heroes defending liberty and the justice system that is essential for the rule of law to prevail.
“The irresponsible major media companies and the President of the United States that each tried and convicted Rittenhouse based upon deliberate misinformation and libel should be held accountable by Mr. Rittenhouse using our nation’s tort system. Let justice be done.”
Rittenhouse, who is now 18, lives in Antioch, a northern suburb of Chicago about 15 miles from Kenosha. On August 25 of last year when he was 17, Rittenhouse decided to patrol the downtown Kenosha area alongside other armed men in order to protect a used car dealership from looting and vandalism. The city had devolved into rioting over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a black man, by a white Kenosha police officer.
Rittenhouse took a medical kit and armed himself with a Smith & Wesson M&P15, which is an AR-15 style semi-automatic rifle that police say his friend illegally bought for him.
While guarding the used car dealership, he was chased by protesters and ended up fatally shooting two people, Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, and injuring a third, Gaige Grosskreutz. The defendant and the three men he shot are all white.
He was arrested and charged with five felony charges and one misdemeanor charge. The most serious charge was intentional homicide, Wisconsin’s top murder charge, which carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison. The others were reckless homicide, attempted homicide, two counts of reckless endangerment, and being a minor illegally in possession of a firearm.
The judge dismissed the misdemeanor firearm charge, which was considered the easiest charge for the state to prove. Previously, Rittenhouse was also charged with violating curfew, but that charge was dismissed by the judge as well.
Kyle Rittenhouse was found NOT GUILTY on ALL counts which translates as INNOCENCE CONFIRMED in America’s Constitutional innocent until proven guilty judicial system. NOWANY sane person who watched the video content that led to Rittenhouse to shoot to defend himself comprehended his actions were in self-defense.
It was the Leftist propaganda machine that justified Communist led rioting, looting, vandalizing and that includes acts of violence against those who tried to resist the Communist thuggery as mostly peaceful protesting that cannot accept private citizens doing what Dem-Marxist controlled police were restricted from doing. Specifically not upholding the rule of law by protecting private property and human lives from mob violence.
Obviously, the Dem-Marxists perpetrated the mob violence because of the hope it went dent the reputation of a law and order President in an election year. Yet with all the lying Leftist vilification still ongoing against INNOCENT Rittenhouse, let’s try and remember the Communist BLM/Antifa (incitement perpetrated by anarchists primarily not Kenosha residents) reason to loot, destroy property and execute violent acts against lawful resisters.
Blake is accused in the criminal complaint, which was obtained by The Post, of breaking into the home of a woman he knew and sexually assaulting her.
The victim, who is only identified by her initials in the paperwork, told police she was asleep in bed with one of her children when Blake came into the room around 6 a.m. and allegedly said, “I want my sh-t,” the record states.
She told cops Blake then used his finger to sexually assault her, sniffed it and said, “Smells like you’ve been with other men,” the criminal complaint alleges.
The officer who took her statement said she “had a very difficult time telling him this and cried as she told how the defendant assaulted her.”
The alleged victim said Blake “penetrating her digitally caused her pain and humiliation and was done without her consent” and she was “very humiliated and upset by the sexual assault,” the record states.
She told police she “was upset but collected herself” and then allegedly ran out the front door after Blake, the complaint says. She then realized her car was missing, checked her purse and saw the keys were missing and “immediately called 911,” the complaint alleges.
The alleged victim told cops she has known him for eight years and claims that he physically assaults her “around twice a year when he drinks heavily.”
Blake was tased and kept entering his vehicle (the brainiac kept resisting even with his children in the vehicle) and he possessed a knife-weapon. Probably to overcoming the taser, a White cop shot him. The idiot cop unloaded 7-shots into Blake and that became the fodder for Communist thugs to punish the community of Kenosha with rioting, vandalism, violence and looting to the tune of $50 million.
ENTER THEN 17-YEAR-OLD KYLE RITTENHOUSE.
This is the point I share some hopefully edited-enough personal information.
As some old television shows used to stipulate, the names have been changed to protect the innocent (somewhat). Largely due to the wife might hurt me if I share too much clarity.
So … Randomly a younger family member came into the living room to ask if I had heard about the verdict of the person he couldn’t remember the name.
I knew he was speaking of the Rittenhouse verdict, to which I blurted out something to the effect, “Yup, innocent on all counts which should make him a national hero! He should never have been charged for defending himself”
THEN an older family member exclaimed something to the effect, “YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS! [Remember I’m paraphrasing from recollection] He came from another State with an AR-15 looking for trouble. He should have been charged!”
Only recollecting some of the details I defiantly said, “ He to help friends defend property against looters and vandals.” [I should have added BLM/Antifa race-baiting Communists, but I wasn’t quick-witted enough.] Adding, “Kenosha should have had an army of Rittenhouses protecting property.”
The conversation became abrasive from there whence I was informed my opinion was “stupid” and I should “SHUT-UP!” as the family member terminated discussion by stomping to their room slamming the door in the process. Which was probably for the best because I have been known to get a bit verbally snippy when challenged by alternative political thinking particularly if the “thinking” is proven to be based on propaganda lies.
So here are some Rittenhouse facts called false (because Dem-Marxists and their MSM propagandists are pathetic liars) which are documented by witnesses, actual investigation and video evidence reported in three cross posts.

The Kyle Rittenhouse trial is over. He’s been found not guilty of all charges. He’s a free man. He’s a patriot. He’s a hero. And if you believe in the rule of law and the right to self-defense, this is a win. The national nightmare for this young man is over. He was the subject of political persecution, being charged for shooting two men and wounding another during the 2020 Kenosha riots. Two men, Joe Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber were trying to kill him. he shot them in self-defense. The video evidence clearly shows that. Gaige Grosskreutz, who survived, admitted to being shot once he approached Rittenhouse armed with a handgun. What’s worse are the lies that have emanated from this incident. They are many and outrageous. Miranda Devine on The New York Post picked the top ten. Once you read them, you can figure out why the Left’s reaction was…interesting. And by that, I mean totally based on fake news (via NY Post):
The central media narrative is that Kyle Rittenhouse is a white supremacist whose mother drove him across state lines with an AR-15 to shoot Black Lives Matter protesters. All lies.
“A white, Trump-supporting, MAGA-loving Blue Lives Matter social media partisan, 17 years old, picks up a gun, drives from one state to another with the intent to shoot people,” was typical from John Heilemann, MSNBC’s national affairs analyst.
So, let’s go through 10 lies about Rittenhouse, debunked in court:
1. He killed two black BLM protesters. All three of the men he shot in self-defense during violent riots in Kenosha on Aug. 25 last year were white.
2. He crossed state lines. He lived 20 miles from Kenosha in Antioch, Ill., with his mother and sisters. But his father, grandmother, aunt, uncle, cousins and best friend live in Kenosha. He had a job as a lifeguard in Kenosha and worked a shift on Aug. 25 before helping clean graffiti left by rioters at a local school. There, he and his friend were invited to join other adults who had been asked by the owners of a used car lot in Kenosha to guard the property after 100 cars had been torched the previous night, when police abandoned the town to rioters. Kyle took his gun to protect himself, since the rioters were violent and armed, including, for instance, Antifa medic Gaige Grosskreutz, who lunged at him with a loaded Glock pointed at his head before he was shot in the arm.
3. Rittenhouse took an AR-15 across state lines. Esquire accused him of “terrorist tourism.” False. His rifle was kept in a safe at his best friend’s stepfather’s house in Kenosha.
4. The gun was illegal. Wrong. Under Wisconsin law, he was entitled to possess the AR-15 as a 17-year-old. The judge dismissed the gun charge, which the prosecution never should have brought.
There are six more lies Devine points out, one of which involves the lies about Rittenhouse wearing medical gloves to cover his fingerprints. Uh, he was administering first aid—also his face is visible. The first is the biggest lie that seems to have eaten away at the Left’s mind like cancer. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY), chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, delivered a scathing statement about the verdict that was a straight lie. First, the Kenosha protests were sparked by the officer-involved shooting of Jacob Blake, who is still alive. Maloney said he was killed. It also was neck-deep in the insinuation that this was a racially motivated shooting, or at the very least that the victims were black. Rosenbaum and Huber are white dudes. And this was not a BLM protest. It was a riot.
The media and their allies appear to be really upset about the black rioters that Kyle Rittenhouse never shot.
As the nation continues to react to Kyle Rittenhouse’s acquittal on all charges, the rioters shot by the teenager continue to be characterized as “victims” by mainstream media outlets and left-wing entities, despite Judge Bruce Schroeder banning the use of the term in his courtroom.
In comparison, little attention has been given to the serious criminal records of the rioters who attacked Rittenhouse.
ll three men shot by Kyle Rittenhouse had serious criminal records, as did numerous other individuals the teen encountered in August of 2020.
Rittenhouse’s defense team built their case around the fact that the entire sequence of events was set in motion by the actions of Joseph Rosenbaum and his associates. When Rittenhouse was separated from his associate and was attempting to make his way back to the Car Source lot by himself, he was approached by a group that included Joseph Rosenbaum and Joshua Ziminski.
Both Ziminski, Rosenbaum and others in their group had started numerous fires throughout the night, according to testimony from multiple witnesses throughout the trial. After words were exchanged, Rosenbaum began to chase Rittenhouse.
It was at this point that Joshua Ziminski fired a handgun into the air as the mob chased, spearheaded by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was eventually cornered and forced to shoot, killing Rosenbaum, who tried to grab his rifle.
Rosenbaum had just been released from a mental institution a day before the shooting. The deceased rioter had a serious criminal record, having been convicted of multiple sex crimes against young boys aged between nine and 11 years old.
According to court documents, Rosenbaum was charged with eleven counts of sex crimes against young boys. He was charged with engaging in oral sex with victims, groping the victims’ genitals and sodomizing the victims.
Joshua Ziminski, the rioter who fired a handgun into the air, also has a lengthy criminal history. He was initially arrested and charged with felony arson, disorderly conduct with a dangerous weapon and obstructing an officer for his role in the incident, but the charges were dropped earlier this year for unknown reasons.
Ziminski’s criminal history dates back to 2002, when he was charged with robbery with use of force, a felony, but the case was reduced to misdemeanor disorderly conduct, according to court records. In 2016, he was found guilty of a hit-and-run in Kenosha, and Zminsky has an open case out of Racine from June 2020 for misdemeanor battery and disorderly conduct, domestic abuse related, according to court records. A trial is scheduled for December 2021.
Ziminski has racked up several other arrests as well, including marijuana possession and child support-related charges.
Anthony Huber was shot by Kyle Rittenhouse after striking the teenager in the head with a skateboard and attempting to grab his rifle. He was fatally shot in the chest one time. Huber attacked the teenager after being prompted by a pursuing mob, who were yelling “get him!” as Rittenhouse attempted to cross police lines. During the trial, Rittenhouse repeatedly said his intention was to surrender to police immediately.
Huber had a serious of arrests himself, according repeat instances of domestic abuse. According to the New York Daily News, Huber was “arrested several times on battery, drugs and other charges”, according to court records. Huber had a disorderly conduct conviction from 2018 as a domestic abuse repeater, which is a misdemeanor.
He told his brother he was going to “gut him like a pig”, according to the criminal complaint. He then stabbed him in the ear and threatened to burn his house down with his family members inside. Other charges – for second-degree recklessly endangering safety, battery, and disorderly conduct – were dismissed but read in.
In 2017, Huber got into an argument with his sister. He ultimately karate kicked his sister, prompting his mother to call the police. His mother told the police that he had a history of domestic violence-related incidents on the call. Huber later told police that it wasn’t “wrong” to hurt his sister.
Grosskreutz was shot in his bicep by Rittenhouse after raising a handgun towards his head. He was the last person shot during the incident before Rittenhouse crossed police lines. Grosskreutz testified that he thought Rittenhouse was an “active shooter”, but also admitted that the teenager did not fire until Grosskreutz raised his weapon in one of the pivotal moments of the trial.
Like Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum, Grosskreutz had a criminal record prior to the night of the shootings. In 2015, he was convicted for intoxicated use of a firearm in Wisconsin, a misdemeanor, according to court records.
He has a much lengthier arrest record according to Wisconsin DOJ archives, however. That shows a string of dismissed charges for numerous offenses, including domestic violence and felony burglary charges, The felony charges were expunged, meaning they can no longer be used against him.
Grosskreutz has also had legal woes in 2021. He was accused of drunk driving earlier in the year, but the charges were dismissed. He is now suing the city of Kenosha for damages, alleging that Kenosha Police enabled the situation that cost him his bicep.
Grosskreutz, who is not a citizen of Kenosha, actually traveled much further to the scene of the riot as opposed to Kyle Rittenhouse. The teenager lives in nearby Antioch, Illinois but worked in Kenosha as a lifeguard and his father lives in Kenosha. All told, Kenosha is roughly 21 miles from Antioch, Illinois while Grosskreutz traveled 51 miles from the Milwaukee area in order to get to the riot.
Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted on Friday, much to the chagrin of riot proponents, among them prominent Democrats including Joe Biden.
Rittenhouse and his lawyers successfully argued that the teenager was forced to act in self defense in response to a violent mob that included members who, earlier that night, threatened Rittenhouse’s life. Self defense and gun rights advocates have celebrated the verdict.
Rittenhouse physically collapsed in tears as the not guilty verdicts were read, and the teen only regained his composure when his lawyers helped raise him to a seated position.

After being smeared as a white supremacist serial murderer by the leftwing media, Democrat party, and even Joe Biden, Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all charges.
Those of us who believe in the right to self-defense, innocence until proven guilty, and equality under the law, can let out a huge sigh of relief as Rittenhouse will be spending zero time behind bars.
It was an emotional day in court as the jury read through the various charges leveled at Kyle Rittenhouse. As each charge was announced, it was quickly followed by the words “not guilty”.
With each of these statements, Kyle Rittenhouse became more emotional, even going into what looked like a state of shock as he collapsed into his chair. It is hard to imagine the kind of relief one feels when you are no longer faced with life in prison:
After the verdict was announced, the judge turned to the jury members stating:
“Without commenting on the verdict, your attentiveness and cooperation you gave to use justifies the confidence that the founders of our country placed in you”
This entire trial has shaken the faith of many patriotic Americans in the U.S. judicial system.
Remember how this case was brought up. After the falsified story that Kyle Rittenhouse went to Kenosha with the intention of killing protestors at a BLM protest spread through the media like wildfire, Wisconsin state prosecutors took up the case in an obviously political move.
One could imagine that lead prosecutor, Thomas Binger, had his eyes on the district attorney position and wanted to take Kyle Rittenhouse down in order to win political capital in his state.
The state was aware that they had no case against Kyle Rittenhouse, but still attempted to sentence a young man to life in prison at the behest of leftists. Due to their lack of evidence against Rittenhouse, they attempted to paint him as a psychotic killer.
Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old who defended his town from being burned to the ground by ANTIFA and BLM rioters, was wrongly made the face of American white supremacy this summer. Joe Biden even used the image of Kyle Rittenhouse throughout his presidential campaign to insinuate that the young man was a Trump crazed killer:
It was not only Joe Biden who defamed Kyle Rittenhouse with the intention of using him as a political tool. Just about every anchor on MSNBC and CNN sought to ruin a young man’s life and use him as a political tool.
Just look at this MSNBC title following the non-guilty verdict of the trial: “Kyle Rittenhouse trial was designed to protect white conservatives who kill.”
With this non-guilty verdict, Kyle Rittenhouse can be expected to become quite a wealthy individual through lawsuits for defamation and libel leveled at him. This will make the multi-million-dollar pay-out the Covington Catholic high schooler received look like pennies.

A federal appeals court on Saturday blocked the Biden administration’s private employer COVID-19 vaccine mandate, asserting there may be constitutional issues with the requirement.
“Because the petitions give cause to believe there are grave statutory and constitutional issues with the mandate, the mandate is hereby STAYED pending further action by this court,” a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit said in the brief order.
The halt of the mandate, which was unveiled this week, is temporary as the case moves forward.
The case was brought by multiple businesses, including the American Family Association; multiple individuals; and several states, including Texas, Utah, and Mississippi.
Petitioners said the mandate, promulgated as an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) by the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), should be struck down because it exceeds OSHA’s authority under the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
They said that the authority is limited to workplace-related hazards while the risk from COVID-19 is “a society-wide danger.” They also said the mandate doesn’t make sense because determining whether COVID-19 is a workplace hazard depends on employees’ age and health, not how many co-workers they have.
“In an attempt to impose a nationwide vaccination mandate without approval from Congress, the executive branch has couched its COVID-19 vaccine mandate as an emergency workplace rule affecting nearly 100 million Americans. But the ETS is neither a workplace rule nor responsive to an emergency,” lawyers for the petitioners wrote in an emergency motion asking the court to impose a stay.
“Vaccination status is a public health issue that affects people throughout society; it is not a hazard particular to the workplace. And there is no need to use an emergency rule to address a pandemic that has been going on for nearly two years. Congress did not grant OSHA such sweeping powers in its authorizing statute,” they added.
Administration officials have in recent days said they’re confident the OSHA rule will withstand the flurry of legal challenges that were lodged after it was made public.
Solicitor of Labor Seema Nanda told The Epoch Times in an emailed statement that the administration is prepared to defend the mandate in court.
“The U.S. Department of Labor is confident in its legal authority to issue the emergency temporary standard on vaccination and testing. The Occupational Safety and Health Act explicitly gives OSHA the authority to act quickly in an emergency where the agency finds that workers are subjected to a grave danger and a new standard is necessary to protect them,” she said.
Brandon Trosclair, a petitioner who employs nearly 500 people across grocery stores in Louisiana and Mississippi, said in a statement that the ruling is “an incredible first victory for all Americans,” adding that the appeals court “quickly realized that the Biden employer vaccine mandate would cause great harm to businesses like mine.”
“The court’s action not only halts Biden from moving forward with his unlawful overreach, but it also commands the judicious review we sought. The president will not impose medical procedures on the American people without the checks and balances afforded by the Constitution,” added Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, a Republican and one of the petitioners.
The appeals court panel consisted of Judge Stuart Kyle Duncan, a Trump nominee; Judge Edith Jones, a Reagan nominee; and Judge Kurt Engelhardt, a George W. Bush nominee.
The Biden administration was ordered to file a response to the petitioners’ motion for a permanent injunction by 5 p.m. on Monday and file a reply to other petitioner court documents by 5 p.m. on Tuesday.

“My legal team is standing by ready to file our lawsuit the minute @joebiden files his unconstitutional rule. This gross example of federal intrusion will not stand.” ~ Governor Kristi Noem, of South Dakota, in[JOS] a tweeton September 9th
The first thoughts that entered my head upon hearing Joe Biden declare he had signed an executive order mandating the Covid Vaccine for all federal employees on September 9th 2021 are largely unprintable, but ran along the lines of “God d**n this dangerous fool”, and I meant it most literally, very nearly as a prayer, not to take His name in vain. “D**n him and his attacks on the people’s freedom and liberty.”
In the name of his desire “to protect all Americans”. Joe Biden has just unleashed the greatest tyrannical federal overreach and abuse of power in U.S. history, as he made the [JOS] Covid vaccine mandatory for a [JOS] total of nearly one hundred million Americans on September 9th 2021, despite earlier assurances that he would not do so. His actions violate the very spirit of the Constitution in the manner that only a true, evil sociopath could envision, as he ties his executive order to an OSHA rule yet to be created, that will force private sector companies with over one hundred employees to also mandate the vaccine; and his actions smack as those of an emperor who cannot be questioned much more than a president at the service of the people.
Contrary to Biden’s assertion that “This is not about freedom or personal choice“, the issue at hand is one hundred percent all about freedom and personal choice and stopping this out of control tyrannical regime from continuing to trample on the sacred sacrosanct rights of all Americans.
In one breath Biden claims to be acting on the behalf of all Americans, while in the next he threatens the jobs of anyone who rejects this toxic dangerous vaccine as a matter of conscience on any grounds, against the informed consent laws in existence for approximately the past four decades. He is basically forcing private companies to act as the federal government’s enforcement agency and force their employees who don’t want the vaccine to accept the Covid vaccine as a condition of employment or get fired.
Biden doesn’t have the authority to do this and he knows it. He even admitted as much in December 2020.
Just a couple of months ago, Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary, acknowledged that a Covid vaccine mandates isn’t for the federal government to do; however, Biden seems to change his policies and his mind every time the wind changes direction and as it serves his ends at any given moment. [Blog Editor: I can’t the verbal jab: The dementia wind between Biden’s ears probably changes often without memory or recall who whispered the change.]
And it’s not stopping him now from using the Occupational Safety and Health Administration [OSHA] as his new medical People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs (NKVD), Joe Stalin-style.
Joe Biden can only use an Executive Order to supplement previously existing law passed by Congress not to make new law in his current manner. This Covid Vaccine Mandate violates the Constitution in multiple areas, as does utilizing OSHA in an illegal attempt to bind Americans through illegally created “rules”, that violate our rights. One is also denied their Constitutional rights if forced to arbitrate any disputed matter through a bureaucrat, as this places administrative power above the law, side-stepping judges and the courts.
What about the workers in small businesses with less than 100 workers who are exempt from Biden’s order? Are they somehow magically immune, or are the unvaccinated only seen as a threat if they work for the Big Fascist Corporations of America, whose money and influence Biden relies heavily on to advance his Marxist “social justice” narrative and anti-American agenda?
This proves he is only concerned with advancing his regime’s own false narrative surrounding Covid and his own power more than caring for the actual health of Americans, or actually protecting them.
And as usual and through their limited knowledge, the proponents of the forced vaccination of America are quick to tout the 1905 Jacobson vs Massachusetts case as justification, rather than acknowledging each person’s own individuality is as a sovereign unto one’s self. They have largely ignored that Jacobson was the basis for allowing for the forced sterilization of the mentally disabled in 1924, a ruling that was also later overturned. They are ignorant of the fact that [JOS] the Supreme Court would later rule in Washington vs Harper (1990) that “the forcible injection of medication into a nonconsenting person’s body represents a substantial interference with that person’s liberty.”
The nine one-hundredths of a percent of a possibility of dying form Covid doesn’t serve as any arguable justification for the negation of all logic and our Inalienable God-Given Rights and Freedom and Liberties. But to listen to the Mad-Hatters in the Biden regime and their delusional followers across American society one certainly gets the impression they’re alright with any perceived need for more tyrannical controls, ordered from on high.
It’s almost as though the Marxist/Maoist Cancel Culture Social Justice Warriors can barely contain their glee over Biden’s tyranny, as they rush to prove their loyalty to him and the New World Order that looms over the horizon.
Everything Ol’ High-Handed Joe is doing right now that’s supposedly aimed at eradicating Covid 19 is nothing less than more Big Government tyranny steam-rolling over individual and States’ rights, as he and his regime operates under no legal restraints or real challenges, as of yet.
Soon after Joe Biden’s delusional and tyrannical speech, Governor Tate Reeves of Mississippi [JOS] noted:
“The President has no authority to require that Americans inject themselves because of their employment at a private business. The vaccine itself is life-saving (highly questionable at this moment), this unconstitutional move is terrifying. This is still America, and we still believe in freedom from tyrants“
Reported by Fox News, Senator Ted Cruz [JOS] stated:
“The federal government has no authority to force businesses in Texas and across the country to mandate their employees get vaccinated. American businesses are still recovering from this past year and a half. It is cruel and burdensome to impose this authoritarian mandate. … (adding) Americans have the right to exercise personal choice when it comes to their health. Getting the vaccine is a decision to be made in consultation with one’s doctor, not forced on Americans by the government.”
And in the meantime, we hear calls from all across the country from the Commie academia and the amerikkans among us that Biden has not gone near far enough, as they call for mandatory Covid vaccinations for all travel, all schools and all employers, and an electronic database to track everybody’s proof of vaccination. Essentially, Conservatives who reject the vaccine for a host of well-founded reasons will be excluded from being able to work through normal channels, and the nation on the whole will be thrown into a miserable Orwellian way of life, tracked and traced in public and at home too.
Friederich Hayek, renowned economist, once remarked that having “seen millions voting themselves into complete dependence on a tyrant (Hitler) has made our generation understand that to choose one’s government is not necessarily to secure one’s freedom.”
This leaves matters in the hands of suspect and corrupt courts and up in the air, since the nation is just as likely to see an activist Communist judge on the federal bench uphold Biden’s executive order as “constitutional” as not, even though it should be struck down out of hand immediately. If those Republicans who are currently threatening lawsuits can properly frame their argument and box the judge in tight, they should win, but given what we’ve already witnessed through the Supreme Court’s oft displayed cowardice, nothing is guaranteed.
So, as one deflection and diversion after another is thrown up against the wall to distract the country from the utter disaster Biden created in Afghanistan, America is left in the grip of Ol’ Joe and his handlers, who are tearing the Constitution apart supposedly for our own good, as they continuously employ and implement state of exception rules (extralegal measures), a concept formulated by Carl Schmitt, a philosopher of 1920s Germany, in order to institutionalize the ideology of their Communist base. And as such, this demands the fiercest of response from America’s Patriots, by way of an unassailable defense of our Inalienable God-Given Rights, if we wish to reject this massive power grab by Biden and Marx Inc and remain a Free nation and a Free people with Free choice in our daily private lives.
On September 9th 2021, Joe Biden declared war on the American people again, when he declared Americans had lost the right to make their own health care decisions, and in the process, he also once again declared war on traditional America and our Virtues, Principles and core Values.
Biden and his criminal, Communist cronies aren’t governing by any Constitution myself and millions of other Americans recognize. They aren’t even pretending to follow the Constitution today, as they rule more like some revolutionary junta.
Yes, elections have consequences, but so too does the installation of an illegitimate government and a soft coup that goes unanswered by the people.
Countering the current assault against our Republic will ultimately take much more effort than protesting in the streets or suing in the courts, if we are to ensure a new state that goes beyond the restoration of the status quo ante and creates a new world politic whereby our Freedom and Liberty can never again be simply swept aside by any tyrant similar to Ol’ Joe, because those sacrosanct entities happen to interfere with his plans. Ultimately, no matter whatever peaceful solutions we may seek, the American people may never find themselves truly Free again, until they resolve among themselves to mount a full blown armed revolution against all those currently serving in government — and seemingly unaccountable to anyone — who use administrative tyranny and outright tyranny by decree, as seen in Joe Biden’s Covid Vaccine Mandate, and execute and exact some real justice against those traitors to America.
