Liberal Hypocrisy

2017_09 Amy Barrett

One of Trump’s nominees for appeals court is Amy Coney Barrett, a Notre Dame Law School professor and a Roman Catholic. Democrats Feinstein, Hirono, and Durbin made her religious convictions an issue during her confirmation hearing.

Republican Sen. Ben Sasse noted that this line of questioning violated the Constitution’s religious test clause.

Durbin said that, because Barrett has been “outspoken” on the topic of “how a person with strong religious beliefs becomes a judge and looks at American law”, the questions were legitimate.

I think it’s more to the point to say that Democrats can’t stand conservative Christians, especially not the Catholic ones, and that they have zero qualms about making religion an issue when it suits them. You KNOW they’d be screaming bloody murder if Republicans asked a Muslim jurist how his faith would influence his judicial conduct.

Remember when long-time Leftist Sonia Sotomayor said she’d be a good SCOTUS judge, because she was a “wise Latina”?

Obama et al. didn’t care that she had never issued any important decisions, made a name for herself as a legal scholar or particularly respected jurist, and that 60% of her lower court decisions had been overturned on appeal. They only cared that she could be relied on to ignore the law in favor of promoting Progressive causes.

Barrett herself said, “It is never appropriate for a judge to apply their personal convictions, whether it derives from faith or personal conviction. My own personal church affiliation or my religious belief would not bear on the discharge of my duties as a judge.”

Not that they believed her.  Personally, I think they assume everyone is as willing to prostitute themselves for politics as they themselves are.

“It’s for the Children”

It always irks me when liberals piss and moan about how mean republicans are to kids and old people. It used to work like a charm every election cycle but a lot of plain, good-hearted working people are getting tired of this nonsense.

Let’s be clear…THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A PRO-LIFE DEMOCRAT.  The party hacks have made that painfully clear.

Dick Durbin, Tom Perez To 28 Percent Of Dems Who Oppose Abortion: Get In Line Or Get Out

“I am committed to women’s rights under the law, reproductive rights certainly, and our party is [committed],” Durbin said in an appearance on CNN. “We’ve made that part of our platform and position for a long, long time. I know within the ranks of the Democratic Party there are those who see that differently on a personal basis, but when it comes to the policy position, I think we need to be clear and unequivocal.”

Nancy Pelosi Thinks There’s Room In The Democratic Party For Pro Life Democrats

Sen. Ben Sasse Gives Perfect Response To DNC Chair’s Claim That He “Fights For Little Guy”

Keith Ellison Blames Obama For Democratic Failures

“Your legacy is not a building that he’s going to construct in Chicago housing his presidential papers,” Ellison continued. “His legacy is the work he’s done which I believe is tremendous. But given we lost a lot of statehouse seats, governorships, secretary of states, his true legacy is in danger and I think he can’t say that he wasn’t part of those losses. Who else, right?”

Cummings disagrees with Ellison on Obama, says all Democrats to blame for current woes

Ellison argued that Obama should have worked harder campaigning for congressional elections.

A LOT OF DEMOCRATS DIDN’T WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH HIM

Look Who Went Into The Bowl Of Stupid

Diamond and Silk: ‘My president never says anything that’s stupid’

EDITORIAL COMMENT:

Remember Bart Stupak? He and a small group of pro-life democrats didn’t want to vote for Obamacare because of federal abortion funding. It would not have passed without them. Had he stuck to his principles, he would have gotten tens of millions in donations from grateful Americans. In the end, he caved and this disaster passed. And the next election cycle he was summarily booted out of office along with all of the others. All the democrats who voted for O-care got something in return. Which led me to the conclusion there are no moderate democrats. They just have different price tags.

Removing Two More of Obama’s Federal Jackboot Heels

The Senate recently canned two sets of regulations finalized late last year by Obama’s Department of Education.  One of them is 695 pages long!

PAY ATTENTION HERE:  These are REGULATIONS created by non-elected, federal government employees that usurp education functions that the Constitution specifically says belong to the States.

According to Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE), not only does the federal government lack the constitutional authority to interfere in local decision-making about education, but also the REGULATION he speaks against specifically violates a LAW passed by Congress just last year!

Ben Sasse Speaks Against Federal Teacher Mandate [11:27] < WORTH VIEWING

I am fundamentally opposed to the federal government having anything to do with education.  

I believe it puts too much distance between the people making the rules and the teachers and parents who know their own kids best.

Plus, the more centralized anything is, the more people who need to be bribed or blackmailed to get decisions made that benefit those with lots of money and very few morals.

Exhibit A: The Common Core textbook scandal that Project Veritas exposed, showing textbook publishers explaining that Common Core was all about the money, not the kids.

No Child Left Behind and Common Core have both been tried and have both proven to be failures.  Constitutionally, education is a state function.  Get the feds out of education!
