The assault on specified rights – and the response

Churches Aren’t Avoiding Death By Keeping Their Doors Closed. They’re Ensuring It. Kylee Zempel – “Now after months of spiritual suicide, some churches are finally changing their posture, submitting to divine rather than government authority, for the latter has detached itself from the people’s consent through elected legislatures as governors indefinitely and in some cases illegally extend emergency powers.”

NY Attorney General’s Lawsuit Scares These NRA Members Much More Than NRA Spending. Madeline Osburn – “Keane said the NY AG’s investigation is clearly a political hit, and not just against the Second Amendement but a threat to the First Amendment, based on “the fact that [James] is seeking to dissolve the organization rather than to just address the financial allegations.”

“NRA members and gun owners alike know this is bigger than private jets and expensive dinners. With an election on the horizon, they see this conveniently-timed lawsuit for exactly what it is: a direct attack on the institutional voice they choose to protect their Constitutional rights.

Inside California Democrats’ Hard Work To Deny The Poor, Middle Class, And Minorities An Education. Christopher Bedford – ‘If people want to talk about systemic racism and the marginalization of minorities,’ a single mother in California told The Federalist, ‘this is it.’

Landscape of rubble persists as Minneapolis demands taxes in exchange for permits. Jeffrey Meitrodt – “City officials say their hands are tied, pointing to a state law that prohibits the removal of any structures or standing timber until all of the taxes assessed against the building have been fully paid.”

Elected Officials Need To Quell Riots Or There’ll Be Bloody Street Justice. I & I Editorial Board – “if those elected officials don’t soon take back the streets from the criminals, everyday Americans might soon do the job for them.”

“As unpleasant as things appear to be now, they will only grow worse if elected officials continue to pretend the violence and destruction is part of 2020’s “summer of love.” Street justice will be meted out summarily by Americans weary of riotous mobs destroying, swarming and assaulting innocents, illegally (and menacingly) blocking streets and sidewalks, wrecking public and private property, and, in some cases, killing. It will be a regrettable chapter in our history.

When law enforcement won’t or can’t do the job, then it falls to others. We can almost guarantee that when civilians impose sentences on the rioters, the outlaws will be treated much more brutally than if the police were keeping the peace. It won’t be pretty but it will be effective.

Wow: Chicago neighborhood ejects BLM protesters at police station. Ed Morrissey – “If BLM and their associates have any complaints after Englewood, they should rethink their agenda. The people we pay to keep order, protect our civil rights, and discourage mob actions are the very people BLM and their affiliates want to abolish.”

Everyone Needs Help During COVID – Except The Solar Power Industry. Charles Sauer – “Among all the COVID-19 media content I’ve seen this year, there was one interview I related to above the rest. It was a doctor saying that he could help people with COVID, but he couldn’t cure ignorance.”

“With and without a pandemic, the free market should be left to make the decision. But, in a pandemic it is even more important that our resources are focused on the most vulnerable in society and the economy. A good tax credit, for any industry, wouldn’t accomplish this. A terrible one like this doesn’t have a prayer. It’s just pure ignorance.

Keystone Jobs A Welcome Alternative To Pink-Slip Economy. David Williams – “When private industry and unions find common ground, people should pay attention.” … “Unfortunately, some in Washington want to ignore this progress and axe this massive project that will create thousands of jobs.” Again, let the free market make the decision and avoid governmental overreach.

Harassing Energy: The Latest in Climate Litigation (EID’s Allison nails it). Rbradley – “It’s been a whirlwind few years for supporters of the climate litigation campaign, who have spent untold millions of dollars and don’t have much to show for it. Multiple strategies have been employed with each running into trouble.”

Soros Reveals How He’s Invested Amid “Fed Liquidity Bubble”; Says Trump “Very Dangerous”. Tyler Durden – as is often the case with severe cases of TDS there is a lot of hyperbole and exaggeration but nothing offered to figure out where the fear behind it comes from.

What is George Will’s Problem? Gene Comiskey – “Will compares the fascist leaders to Donald Trump, describing them as strongarm bullies without intellectual weight or nuanced arguments.” Again, hyperbole and exaggeration abound sans any support …

“It is interesting that in his recitation of the history of fascism, Mr. Will fails to see the obvious: that the historical circumstances that shaped it and the ideological theories which Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini and others believed in, apply not to Donald Trump and his followers but to the very people who are trying to defeat the President and lead this country down a destructive path of rigid intellectual, economic, and social control.

Will writes of ‘Trumpism’ as “an entertainment genre based on contempt for its bellowing audiences.” And there you have it: a classic example of projection.

George Will is so blinded by hatred or elitism or delusions of ideological superiority that he cannot see the real dangers facing this country.

While mobs rule the streets, George Will is safely ensconced in his ivory tower, warm and cozy in his blanket of self-righteousness and moral superiority. Perhaps Will should remember the truism that the mob always eats its own.

NV Governor Punishes Casino for Hosting Worship Service. Liberty Counsel – “Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak fined the Las Vegas Ahern Hotel for hosting a worship service for an “Evangelicals for Trump” group inside a casino ballroom because it violated his unconstitutional 50-person gathering limit on houses of worship.” But did it violate the rules on Casino activity?
