082218 Equal protection again

So the latest avenue used by the Left to attack Trump is to say that when an attorney makes payments which benefit a candidate, that attorney gets prosecuted for making an excessive campaign contribution.

Well, okay, there’s certainly a good possibility that such an argument could be plausible, that candidates would use their attorneys to …

082018 DEMs secret plan to make Hillary President

I had initially held off a day or so after writing the first draft of this, a cooling-off period while I reflected on it.  It’s pretty incendiary stuff.  Then I read about Cohen pleading guilty to an excessive campaign contribution and I realized that in the face of Prosecutorial Insanity (see ERpundit 08/21/18), I’d …

082118 Prosecutorial insanity

Sometimes stuff happens that is just so impossibly stupid and self-contradictory, I am dumbfounded that actual people took it seriously.  Today is one of those days.

Cohen pleading guilty to having made an excessive campaign contribution is one of those things.  He got reimbursed for those payments.  So even if it is “deemed” to have …

081618 Making my day!

Boy, talk about someone making my day!  Today’s editorials rebuking Trump for calling the media “fake news” and “enemy of the people” are a hilarious hoot to anyone who appreciates irony and hypocrisy.  Not to mention enjoying the spectacle of media corruption, deceit, arrogance, stupidity and shooting oneself in the foot.

Well, let’s get to …

080818 We want obedience

Been getting inundated by requests for support from candidates and committees of all points along the political spectrum.  They still don’t get it.  We don’t care what letter goes in parentheses after someone’s name.  We don’t care what ideology someone says they are when they’re on the campaign trail.  We’ve been betrayed and lied …

071518 Our right to petition for redress of grievances

The real reason for the bitter angst over the Supreme Court vacancy is that the 5-4 split wipes out our right to petition the government for redress of grievances.  When the judiciary overrides the legislature, then we have no viable avenue for redress of grievances.

That’s what causes the anger – it arises from the …

052918 How about dealing with insurrection?

We’re suffering from several examples of insurrection, and the Constitution provides tools for dealing with insurrection.  So let’s use those tools and solve the problems.

Definitions of insurrection include phrases such as “organized opposition to authority” and “usually armed”, so it’s clear that insurrection need not be armed conflict.  It can be the refusal of …

052718 De-ratify the 16th Amendment

In the category of how States can rein in the federal government … what if five States rescinded their ratification of the 16th Amendment?  That would bring the count of States ratifying from 42 down to 37, at which point the amendment is no longer ratified by three-fourths of the States and would therefore …

052418 Here’s something GOP could do that would actually be helpful

Following up on my shy, timid, dull, meek, middle-of-the-road post from 5/21 … here’s an example of how we can apply legislative power to stop the rape and murder of our freedom.

Our Constitution empowers Congress to make the rules governing the exercise of judicial power.  There is the general power of Article I, Section …
