Idiocy at HuffPo

But I repeat myself.

On Wednesday, Emily Peck published an especially brainless piece in HuffPost entitled, “The Constitution Gives Gun Owners Greater Rights Than Women.”

Her evidence? More men own guns!

Never mind that the Second Amendment itself is absolutely gender-neutral.

Plus, this.

2d Amendment - making women equal

Thursday Goings On

There was a time, lo these many years ago, when late night comedians just told jokes and chatted with actresses, musicians, and assorted celebrities. I can remember all the way back to Jack Paar (google him if you’re not that old). Johnny Carson has been the standard most so-called hosts have been measured by. Jay Leno took his place and he dabbled in political waters, but not too heavily as I recall. Today people like Kimmel, Letterman, Fallon, and especially that hateful pig Stephen Colbert, have veered from being entertainers into social commentators. Kimmel has gone from whining about universal healthcare to accusing legal gun owners of being terrorists.

Kimmel says ‘NUTS’ disagree with him on gun control because they know they’re GUILTY
Jimmy Kimmel tried to GUNSHAME people who disagreed with his emotional and irrational screed against guns in a short commentary he gave last night on his show. Listen to the idiot prattle on below:

KIMMEL HAS DRAWN A RESPONSE FROM BEN SHAPIRO AND RUSH… HE’S FIGHTING WAY OUTSIDE HIS WEIGHT CLASS

Ben Shapiro Obliterates ‘Social Justice King’ Jimmy Kimmel For His ‘Abhorrent’ Gun Control Views
The last place you want to be is on the receiving end of Ben Shapiro’s laser sharp tongue. The Daily Wire founder obliterated late night host Jimmy Kimmel’s “abhorrent,” and “nasty” gun control views.

Shapiro noted at the onset that “Kimmel did something last night that I find truly abhorrent” which was discard any and all facts as part of his effort to “become the social justice king of late-night television” and “all-heart representation of all leftist causes.”

Kellyanne Conway Scrutinized for Taking Private Flights
SUDDENLY THE DEMOCRATS ARE CONSUMED WITH ETHICS… FUNNY HOW THAT WORKS
THEY GOT RID OF TOM PRICE, NOW THEY’RE AFTER ANOTHER VICTIM
Representative Elijah Cummings, the ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, sent a letter to Conway on Wednesday requesting information about her use of private, non-commercial or military flights since she joined the Trump administration, the Democratic arm of his committee announced Wednesday.

Morning Joe Paints Trump as a Sociopathic Dictator After Puerto Rico Visit
On Wednesday’s Morning Joe, both the hosts and the rest of the panel spent a significant amount of time covering President Trump’s visit yesterday to Puerto Rico. In so doing, they repeatedly and shamelessly suggested that Trump was a sociopath who would not help Puerto Rico if its leaders did not bow down to him.

Desperately Seeking A Trump Failure In Puerto Rico
Federal Aid: “You never let a serious crisis go to waste” was former Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel’s motto. It’s one that President Trump’s critics have fully embraced as they try to use Puerto Rico’s struggles to recover from Hurricane Maria as a political weapon.

Robb: Trump will win in 2020 if the left keeps calling him a racist
The left has talked itself into believing that Trump’s alleged appeals to white racism were what put him over the top.
More astute psephologists have pointed out that the actual difference was made by people in industrial states who previously had voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, but switched to Trump over Hillary Clinton in 2016. Hard to attribute those decisions to white racism.

A Constitutional Right to Win? The Democrats Want One
Wisconsin Democrats cluster predominately in the cities of Milwaukee and Madison, while Republicans are spread out more evenly (and therefore are more competitive) throughout the state.
And never mind that the law is not on their side. Nothing in the Constitution, or indeed the entire political history of the United States, suggests that a party has a legal right to win individual legislative elections proportionate to its statewide vote total.

First Amendment Does Not Apply

NFL Games Operations Manual

“I don’t watch football. I don’t care about football. But I do care about constitutional literacy. Please stop saying football players have first amendment rights to disregard the direction of their private employers while engaged in privately sponsored activities — which is what NFL football games are,” said Collett, a professor at the University of St. Thomas School of Law. “They have no more constitutional protection for their expressive activities than I do for mine at my private Catholic university. Any ‘rights’ they have are based on their contracts and employment law.”

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.

Delusional Democrats

In this clip, Dean says Trump is “incapable of governing” and “erratic”? Pfft. More like “systematically fulfilling his campaign promises to repair the economy, get Americans back to work, and defend our borders.”

Surprisingly (given this is MSNBC), Turley throws cold water on the idea that the Hillary-deprived can get Trump out via the 25th amendment.  I keep wondering if the yahoos yelling for impeachment really think that Hillary would replace him. Duh!

The Constitution clearly lays out that, if an incumbent President becomes incapacitated, dies, resigns or is removed from office, the Vice President takes over. We’ve had that happen a handful of times in our history, but we’ve never had to move down the succession list.

However, if Trump were removed and Vice President Pence became unable to serve before a new VP had been appointed:

  1. Paul Ryan, the Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, would take over.
  2. After that, it would go to Orrin Hatch, President pro tempore of the Senate, another Republican.
  3. After that, it would go to Trump’s Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, another Republican.

Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES would the person who LOST THE ELECTION become POTUS.

Gorsuch Will Make a Difference

Gorsuch will provide the Supreme Court with the crucial fifth vote needed to sustain the Constitution as written and to protect fundamental rights like religious freedom, free speech, and the right to bear arms.

SCOTUS and Constitution

The new Supreme Court justice will arrive in time to hear the April 19 oral arguments in Trinity Lutheran Church v. Pauley, which is a case of stark, blatant religious discrimination by the government.

Gorsuch will also influence which pending petitions SCOTUS will accept for appeal.

Among those pending is Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, an important case about an individual’s right to refuse to perform a service that violates his or her religious beliefs.

Two other important petitions — Husted v. A. Philip Randolph Institute and North Carolina v. North Carolina NAACP — involve voter ID and election integrity.

Neil Gorsuch should also provide the fifth vote needed to quash the judicial activism present in the injunctions against Trump’s travel ban orders.  The Constitution clearly gives POTUS the authority as commander-in-chief to protect the nation, something Obama did without any liberals freaking out about it.

The Slime Stream Media Goes Full On Hypocrite

In 2013, then-Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid went nuclear and the same MSM that is now condemning Republicans cheered about it.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes hailed it as “an affirmative win for democracy.”

CNN’s Ron Brownstein said, “The idea of requiring a super majority for the president to appoint his nominees just is anachronistic.”
