The Supreme Court Void – A Chance for Republicans to show their Spine

By Ken Gulley

Ruth Bader Ginsburg – a Titan of the Left – has passed away. In her wake, a massive vacancy is left on the bench of the United States Supreme Court.

She was no friend of originalism and conservatism but condolences, respect, honor, and public displays of mourning (ie. A lowered Flag) are due to honor her title and position in our government.

The United States Supreme Court

For the believer, like myself, condolences and prayer are expected, not celebration. We don’t take joy the death of enemies or those we vehemently disagree with.

When the powers are shaken, mice and men stir to fill the void. In the powers of the United States, the branches are supposed to balanced – whether they currently are (or even should be) is a matter of opinionated disagreement.

This year has shown us the utter character of the foundation of ideologies behind some of those powers.

Conservatism has shown itself to be stoic, steadfast, deeply rooted yet in philosophy and wisdom yet nuanced and bent toward the moral absolutes and pursuit of righteousness. It’s rigid traditionalism has found itself to be an outright enemy of the ever “progressing” views of the opposition.

Classical Liberalism on the other-hand is a refined gentleman, wise, educated, proper and tolerant. Sadly, it’s characteristic’s are all but dead on the Left.

Liberalism, bent toward utopic visions, is still staunch in its moral standing that it’s opposition should have the equal right to both practice and belief as itself. For this repugnant violation, it has become endangered among the party that onced championed it.

In the void left behind by Liberalism, Leftism has sprung up, rapidly consuming and devolving the minds of those touched by its tentacles. Disruptive, destructive, devoid of an anchor, arched toward materialism and its post-modern understanding; a plague that has devoured and dismantled everything it touches: the university, the arts, the sciences, and even sports.

Leftism

A proliferation of this pandemic has exacerbated the eagerness of emissaries to engorge themselves on power.

In pursuit of this very thing, in 2013, a short-sighted grab of power by then majority Democratic Senator Harry Reid, “the Nuclear option” was dealt. As a result, a simple majority, 51 votes (rather than 60), has now become the deciding number needed to approve Federal Judges – with the exception of the supreme court.

In politics, an unprecedented power grab is always met in kind. With patience, that response came at the right hour in 2017. In a dramatic, perhaps necessary move to end debate on then Supreme Court appointee Neil Gorsuch, former (and current )Senate Republican Majority leader McConnell extended the simple majority to Supreme Court appointees.

A rule change and power matching move that now looms ever-large upon the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Self Explanitory

Sowing and reaping is a basic lesson taught by wise theologians and the simple farmers. It is an ironic testimony against the Democratic party for their illiteracy of that very elementary task, as they figuratively and literally despise both noble professions.

For the past 80 years, a Precedent has stood for legislators to avoid appointee a new Supreme Court Justice in an election year.

Precedents are upheld by gentlemen. I am a fan of both precedent and gentlemanliness. Leftism is devoid of the very characteristic and liberalism as we know it is dead among the Left.

This year more than ever, Leftists have shown us how far they are willing to go to destroy our history, attack the foundations, and assault the institutions to instill their corrupt vision of society.

Leftism does not tolerate opposition, it attacks our very principles, and seeks to destroy our most hallowed Rights – from our means of defense to the very words we utter. They’ve employed totalitarianism in business, athletics, social media, policy, procedure and thought. To suggest that they do not aim to go further if they can is to be absolutely naive.

They employ the powers of states, legislatures, judges, influencers in music, television, media and law. They have already shown they are able and willing to seduce more people by expanding their horizons to seats of faith, and science.

Media Apologism

All this and still they summon the nerve to cry out for precedent and decorum when they themselves broke the natural check and balance placed within the Senate by using the so called “nuclear option.” The boldness to call out for fairness as they employ legions of marxist rioters demanding radical change.

The Right, from conservative to Republican-moderates (and other liberty bent folk in between) have played the part of the silent majority and etiquette oriented gatekeepers for far too long. We’ve fought in the ring with propriety and rules while our opposition has used eye gouging, groin kicks and their incisors.

Now they ask us to follow a set of rules that do not exist for propriety and fairness sake? How bold. Mitch and friends will be called hypocrites for holding tight to Precedent in the past. That is fine. Wear the title, if it means fending off the radicalism that may be headed to the bench if they have their way.

In 2016, though I often stand on the importance of Precedent, I never made an argument for it. I simply understood that the Senate – especially the majority in opposition to the Executive – has no responsibility or obligation to approve whomever the President wishes to appoint.

While some may hang on the emotional argument of Ruth’s “last wishes,” they should also know that the same person shirked established precedent and urged the Senate to replace her former colleague Antonin Scalia, saying

“There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being president in his last year,” she said when asked if the Senate had an obligation to vote on Judge Garland. “That’s their job,” she said.

Justice Scalia

Senator Ted Cruz has eloquently explained the importance of filling the vacancy by explaining the necessity of the Supreme Court in adjudicating what looks to be a contest election. An election where Democrat leaders have already called for Biden to refuse abdication. But when have the Left ever listened to reasoned and sound argument?

We’re at a doorway, an impasse, with Leftism and right now the best way to hold the lone against the loss of liberty is through the high court. If Republicans have a spine, they’ll do the job we elected them to do. So with 2 months to go, ram it through Mitch! “Breacher up!”

Five Points to Consider: The Shooting of Jacob Blake – Kenosha, Wisconsin

By Ken Gulley

As Wisconsin reels from riots following the viral shooting of Jacob Blake; media, politicians, celebrities, activists, and athletes have not missed an opportunity to condemn America all over again. Major sports have canceled their activities in one big virtue signal, coming to their own conclusion that the officers involved are guilty of wrongdoing before the facts come to light

The story they pitch is the same, “Police kill black people for no reason.” They offer up a new holy martyr on the mantel Social Justice as means to allow Marxist-Leftist policy creep.

The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations

By Ken Gulley

“Our enemy is the soft bigotry of low expectations.”

Condoleezza Rice borrowed this phrase to ignite a fire in certain underserved education communities.

Today, the phrase is best used to describe Leftist treatment of minority communities, as if dealing with an ignorant and unruly child: “Lowered expectations.”

No, You Should Not Be Ashamed to Celebrate the 4th of July

By Joshua Weigert
July 3rd, 2020

For the past several days, there has been much talk about “canceling” the 4th of July. The idea behind canceling Independence Day is not a surprise: America is a terrible, awful, no good place. The reasons for this canceling are equally not surprising: Racism towards African-Americans, Native Indians, and general anti-LGBTQAAIIPEIEIOAT&T sentiments. 

Yes, the history of America was not always great and, at times, profoundly evil. Slavery and Jim Crow laws are examples of how systemic racism and bigotry were able to run rampant. However, this does not mean that America, the American Constitution, or the Declaration of Independence, is rooted in racism and/or evil. Few more profound words have ever been written than “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that ALL men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” 

THIS is what America was founded on. THIS is what America strives towards. THIS is also what leftists are trying to destroy.

More Fake Noose

By Ken Gulley

As America continues to reel from the dilemma posed by the purely political response to Covid-19 and nationwide protests against perceived racial injustice, a sudden rash of “Fake Hate Crimes” have gained national attention.

If you remember the mid-20-teens and the rash of fake hate crimes after the first Black Lives Matter movement after Ferguson, you probably remember this website tracking confirmed fakes: lickity-Link.

Well the new spurt of fake hate crimes seem a bit different. They’re not being falsely perpetuated by the victim but rather being stoked by third parties and the media.

I don’t know who needs to hear this, but you have a voice and CAN talk about race issues. Whether you are white, black, yellow, purple or neon orange, no one has the right to tell you to be quiet and that your voice doesn’t matter.

As a white male, I have been bombarded with posts on social media about how my white voice needs to “shut up” and listen to the voices of African-Americans and other visible minorities. I think listening is important. But I will not be silenced.

Are our freedoms and liberties being destroyed by COVID-19?

Yesterday, I was stunned to see a video of a man in Philadelphia being forcibly removed from a bus because he was not wearing a face mask. There is no actual law enforcing people wearing face masks, but that didn’t stop law enforcement from manhandling him off the bus. It was a totalitarian and authoritarian move. I then read and watched more and more videos and articles of governors and mayors enforcing strict decrees infringing on the rights of their constituents. It seems surreal. America, where freedom and liberty is absolutely paramount, is now a land where citizen’s rights are being chipped away all in the name of security.

ALL THAT GLITTERS ISN’T SOCIALISM.

You’ve probably come across it.

With Bernie Sanders seriously contending as the Democratic candidate for President in the past two elections seasons, champions of Socialism have crawled out of their parent’s basement to declare their love for all things Socialism. In doing so, they have declared that all things that glitter is obviously not capitalism.

A RETURN TO THE NORM?

Covid 19 has presented government with a plethora of different challenges, a principal one being how to track and determine real cases of this virus.

Yesterday news broke of a 17 year old boy in LA County who had died. The media jumped on the case as a death attributed to Covid 19 but that information has now been placed on hold seeing that the teen suffered from a number of complications prior to being infected. The US mortality rate for those infected is hovering around 1.4-1.5% (or 0.5-0.6%) more than the yearly viral influenza.
