Second Amendment Guns

Bookworm Beat 10/4/17 — the Second Amendment edition

While not all of the links in this post discuss the Second Amendment, most do. There’s other stuff too, about health care, the economy, etc. It’s all good. A great book about the Second Amendment. This post focuses heavily on the Second Amendment because, once again, Progressives are using an

The Originalism v Living Constitution fight

Constitutional Originalism or the “living Constitution”: Gorsuch’s nomination and a tale of two law profs

The Gorsuch nomination, pitting Originalism against a “living Constitution,” is a fight for America’s soul — so pay attention because this is important!

Illustrates post about judges inventing new legal standard for Trump

Judges invent an entirely new, and very illegal, “legal standard” for Donald Trump

When it comes to Donald Trump, Obama-appointed judges are inventing new legal standards unrelated to the Constitution, statutes, cases, or even facts. Progressives are very excited that a federal judge in Kentucky has held that Trump can be sued for inciting violence. Perfectly illustrating this excitement is a WaPo analysis

The Bookworm Beat 7-7-15 — the “some things never get old” edition and open thread

None of these links have current dates because they’ve been sitting on my spindle for a while, but each addresses a current issue, and it would be criminal if I didn’t share them with you: Nevada puts education power back in parents’ hands People who oppose the power of the

If you read one thing today, read Andrew McCarthy’s take on the U.S. Supreme Court

Andrew McCarthy outdid himself on this one, honing in on the giveaway that the Supreme Court is a legislative branch of the Progressives: Yet, for all the non-stop commentary, one detail goes nearly unmentioned — the omission that best explains this week’s Fundamental Transformation trifecta. Did you notice that there was
