hierarchy of individual rights assaulted with dishonesty

“common talking point among Democratic members and pundits on how the recent Dobbs decision will present a barrier to women seeking treatment for ectopic pregnancies … the most lethal form of disinformation” —  Jonathan Turley, The Parade Of Horribles: A Democratic Talking Point On Dobbs Is Dangerous Disinformation | ZeroHedge

“After months of gentile distancing, the media’s come-to-Jesus finally happened after the White House ‘botched’ the response to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade … One has to wonder if the media is simply trying to get ahead of a disastrous run for reelection in 2024, or if they’re getting ready for GOP-led investigations into Hunter and crew if the Republicans take back Congress in this year’s midterm elections” —  Tyler Durden, Knives Out: WaPo, NYT Go For Biden Blood In Scathing Moment Of Honesty | ZeroHedge

“The point is that the failure of Trump’s many post-2020 lawsuits says little about their ultimate merits. Election integrity is a serious problem, and it was compromised in many states in 2020” —  John Hinderaker, Election Integrity In Wisconsin | Power Line

“Many of the top jurists in our country care no more about election integrity than the Democrat politicians trying to sell the myth that the 2020 election was spectacularly safe and error-free” —  Margot Cleveland, WI Ballot Drop Box Win Reveals Huge Issue: Top Jurists Don’t Care About Election Integrity

“The essence of this lesson is: Federalism is a basic structure of governance in the United States, U.S. Constitutional rights are limited, and some rights come from God, not government” —  M. E. Boyd, The Supreme Court Just Gave the Nation a Giant Civics Lesson – American Thinker

A. the right to a trial by jury in criminal cases

B. the right to present oneself for trial – habeas corpus

C. the right not to have a religious test used as a condition of federal public service

D. the right not to be incriminated by a legislative body – bill of attainder

B. the right to vote – the 15th (1870), 19th (1920), 24th (1964), and 26th (1971) Amendments

V. STATE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS VARY IN EACH STATE’S CONSTITUTION – example: the right to primary and secondary education is a right derived from each state, not the US Constitution

“It is a case in which mixed motives, some selfish, some noble, played a vital role in making the world a more civilized (or at least a less barbaric) place.  – It happened around the year 1095” —  Robert Arvay, How a pope civilized the West – American Thinker

“God tells Amos that His plumb line shows that Israel is not aligned with Him and is due for judgment.  If you are still with me, I live in the USA, and I wonder: what would God see if He put His plumb line in the middle of America?  As I think about the following institutions and individuals, I wonder how they would square with God’s demanding plumb line” —  Ned Cosby, Plumb lines and America in 2022 – American Thinker

“Democrats are starting to sound just a little demonic in their fanaticism for abortion, and it’s obvious in their cavalier attitude toward the safety of the Supreme Court justices — Threats, harassment, and apparently killing seem to be the only game in town for Democrats.  They can’t sell the public on their ideas, so their rage is getting lethal” —  Monica Showalter, Democrats gleeful at the harassment of Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh – American Thinker

“Instead of protecting the vulnerable, our governments irrationally shut down businesses, churches, and, worst of all, schools. The result was an educational and social disaster, the magnitude of which we have barely begun to understand … the teachers’ unions, which demanded shutdowns in many states, should pay a price.” —  John Hinderaker, School Closures Crushed Our Children | Power Line

“The man whose posting on social media warned authorities that agent provocateurs from Antifa and Black Lives Matter would be at the U.S. Capitol dressed as Trump supporters on Jan. 6, 2021, is a self-described government informant tied to former deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein” —  Joseph M. Hanneman via The Epoch Times, Former Federal ‘Informant’ Warned Of Antifa, BLM Infiltrators At Capitol On Jan. 6 | ZeroHedge

“Eisenhower warned against the scientific-technological elite being dependent upon government grants. Eisenhower feared that the elite would use their influence and expertise to warp public policy for their own benefit. That is exactly what is happening” … “I don’t see an end to junk science because there’s too much money in it and the credible institutions that could puncture it lack objectivity and expertise. The ideological bias of the mainstream media attracts them to any crackpot theory that calls for more government money and power mobilized to solve the “problem.” For them the global warming narrative is wonderful because it provides an excuse for the government to regulate nearly everything” —  Norman Rogers, The Global Warming Golden Goose – American Thinker

“Reports of unrest over environmental policies from the Netherlands and Sri Lanka are much more than novelty news. What is happening in both spots is a lesson that has to be learned quickly. If not, there’s deep trouble ahead.” … “Of course, petty tyrannies can quickly and easily grow into totalitarianism. The step from “public servant” to green tyrant is shorter than most of us would think”– There’s No Despot So Tyrannical As A Green Politician – Issues & Insights
