Feinstein worried Gorsuch would abide by Constitution as written, cites women burned at stake for witchcraft

1 Comment

H/T Conservative Firing Line. 

Holy shit Batman stop the presses a judge that will actually uphold the Constitution like he swore to do.

What a novel idea.Of course I am being a wise ass.

Senator Dianne Feinstein(D-Calif.) represents the best and brightest the DemocRats have to offer.Snark.

On Monday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., expressed concern that Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s choice to replace former Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, would (gasp) follow the Constitution as it is actually written, not as how she thinks it should read.  To make her point, she cited the Salem Witch Trials, which took place about 100 years before the Constitution was adopted.

“It was not so long after women had been burned at the stake for witchcraft, and the idea of an automobile, let alone the Internet, was unfathomable,” she said.

According to Townhall:

Feinstein began by noting she was “deeply disappointed” that Obama’s choice for the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland, did not get the luxury of a hearing. Nevertheless, she said it is now the committee’s job to determine whether Gorsuch is a “reasonable mainstream conservative” fit for the highest court in the land.

She did not seem to have much confidence in the nominee. Feinstein is disturbed by Gorsuch’s originalism, she argued, because she believes the concept “ignores the intent of the framers.”

“It’s a framework on which to build,” she said. “I firmly believe the Constitution is a living document that evolves as our country evolves.”

Feinstein noted that at the time of the document’s initial drafting, slavery was still an institution and women were still being burned at the stake for witchcraft. If the document had not evolved with culture, she added, we would still have segregated schools and women wouldn’t be equally protected under the law.

Actually, the Salen Witch Trials ended about 1693, according to History.com:

Though the respected minister Cotton Mather had warned of the dubious value of spectral evidence (or testimony about dreams and visions), his concerns went largely unheeded during the Salem witch trials. Increase Mather, president of Harvard College (and Cotton’s father) later joined his son in urging that the standards of evidence for witchcraft must be equal to those for any other crime, concluding that “It would better that ten suspected witches may escape than one innocent person be condemned.” Amid waning public support for the trials, Governor Phips dissolved the Court of Oyer and Terminer in October and mandated that its successor disregard spectral evidence. Trials continued with dwindling intensity until early 1693, and by that May Phips had pardoned and released all those in prison on witchcraft charges.

In January 1697, the Massachusetts General Court declared a day of fasting for the tragedy of the Salem witch trials; the court later deemed the trials unlawful, and the leading justice Samuel Sewall publicly apologized for his role in the process. The damage to the community lingered, however, even after Massachusetts Colony passed legislation restoring the good names of the condemned and providing financial restitution to their heirs in 1711. Indeed, the vivid and painful legacy of the Salem witch trials endured well into the 20th century, when Arthur Miller dramatized the events of 1692 in his play “The Crucible” (1953), using them as an allegory for the anti-Communist “witch hunts” led by Senator Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s.

Sen Feinstein attacks “originalist” philosphy of Gorsuch. Notes in 1789, it wasn’t long ago “women had been burned at stake for witchcraft.”

Sure sounds like it.

Sen Feinstein doesn’t seem to realize an entire century passed between the Salem witch trials & the adoption of the US Constitution

Jeez, Feinstein isn’t that smart. This is embarrassing.

Sadly, it’s to be expected with modern Democrats…

Bongino: ‘Hillary only understands power and government force’

1 Comment

H/T Conservative Firing Line.

Hillary would unleash an agenda that would make Adolph Hitler look like a piker.

This is why we must defeat Hillary and her brand of evil. 

Wikileaks continues to release Hillary Clinton’s emails, in where two of the latest emails show that Clinton admits that she is somewhat far removed from the middle-class upbringing that she frequently publicizes on the campaign trail.

In another email, Clinton stated that Washington lawmakers would pass the Dodd-Frank banking reform law merely for “political reasons.”

With the Clinton email scandal continuing, former United States Secret Service agent and author of “Life Inside the Bubble: Why a Top-Ranked Secret Service Agent Walked Away from It All”, Daniel Bongino has a warning for those who are voting for Clinton and said that Hillary only understands power and government force.

Bongino said, “I know who Hillary Clinton is… I worked for Hillary Clinton. She has already corrupted the FBI, the State Department, the White House, the Secret Service, the Diplomatic Security Service, the CIA, the DIA, and more.”

“If Hillary is elected, I can assure you, the dirty dealings of the Barack Obama White House will look like child’s play. Hillary only understands power and government force. She is a creature of government, nourished by government, who uses government as a tactical weapon, “said Bongino. “She will not be stopped because she knows no limits.

Blow all of this off and shake your head if it makes you feel better but, I was there, I know her, and I know what awaits us if she wins this election.”

Bongino continued and stated that the Democrats have abandoned middle-class Americans decades ago and that sadly, they chose division politics, class warfare, and the fomenting of racial strife as their strategic weapons, abandoning their principles during this conversion.

Bongino further said, “With each new #Wikileaks email leak from the Clinton camp we are offered a new window into the destructive soul of the modern Democratic Party. Look no further than the troubling, and in some cases, disgusting terminology they use to define us. Here’s a small sample of what the Clinton/Obama/Democratic axis thinks of you.”

In addition, critically, about your success, “You didn’t build that.”

“Incredibly, these out-of-touch insiders are now running the country and have chosen to jump in bed with coastal “elites,” pompous academics, the Hollywood brunch crowd, liberal media activists, and radical interest groups while throwing you overboard. I’m done with this crowd. Boot these suckers out of office in November and anyone they’ve stained with their deranged pomposity, “said Bongino.

“When I was a young Secret Service agent I worked a prominent financial fraud case with significant ties to terror financing. The terrorism component of the case forced me to bring in the FBI due to investigative jurisdiction issues.”

“I was extremely impressed with the FBI agents that worked the case. They were both knowledgeable and professional. Having said that, I am convinced that the hard-working men and women of the FBI must be absolutely disgusted with the questionable at best, potentially corrupt at worst, behavior of FBI director Comey, “Bongino stated. “The absurd immunity deals to Hillary’s staff for their limited testimony in the email scandal, the destruction of evidence, the coddling interviews, and the limited investigation have to be driving the rank and file FBI agents wild.”

“The men and women of the FBI spent decades building a peerless reputation and are now forced to watch as the forest fire known as the Clintons, and Jim Comey, burn it all down. It is a shame folks. I hate to see this.”

Muhammad Ali was no hero

2 Comments

This is from Conservative Firing Line. 

I agree with the author of this article.

Cassius Clay was a racist and spread hate from the Koran.

I had a little ditty to come to mind about Ali and I am going to share it.

When Ali made it to the Pearly Gates in his loud mouthed arrogant way started making demands of St.Peter.

His first demand was I want to see Allah and his prophet Muhammad.

His second demand he wanted to see the prophet Elijah Mohammed and be with them.   

To the demands St.Peter says that is no problem.

Just walk over to the door on the left open it walk through it and you will be with and see the people from your requests.

Ali is thinking how great is this Muslims have their own entrance to their own special place.

As Ali goes through the door he comments on how hot it is in there.

As the door slams behind him he hears St.Peter chuckle “You ain’t seen nothing yet.

Ali – What’s wrong with America incarnate. (Photo: Youtube)

Ali – What’s wrong with America incarnate. (Photo: Youtube)

There aren’t many people I want to see dead. It’s a sad thing to see just about anyone pass away, including Ali. I understand my opinion probably infuriates many, but the First Amendment is suppose to defend unpopular opinions, right?

Anyhow, now that I have that particular qualifier out of the way, I certainly don’t want to see someone portrayed as a hero when the same someone clearly wasn’t. That’s right, I said it. Muhammad Ali was no hero, and I’m not the only one who feels that way.

I believe that Muhammad Ali was in life a hypocrite, a coward, an ingrate, and a buffoon. Gosh, why do I have the funny feeling that whoever is reading this either loves me or hates me?

But I digress. Keep in mind that this is the same individual who threw his 1960 Rome Olympics Gold Medal into the Ohio River in a fit of childish rage. But fret not, he was re-issued another brand spanking new one at the 1996 Atlanta Olympiad. How nice.

The same individual born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr. turned his back on his county when he dodged the draft in ’67. Or as Ali flexed his brain muscle at the time, “I ain’t got no quarrel with them Viet Cong.”

Oddly enough, hundreds of thousands of other young American males answered their nation’s call when it came time to perform their patriotic chore. Ali could have petitioned for a Conscientious Objector status or even possibly joined the Reserves.

Here’s a crazy idea… how about serving like all those hundreds of others did at the time? But not Muhammad Ali. I guess Captain Ted Williams (USMC fighter pilot/Boston Red Sox/Washington Senators), Spec 4 Rocky Bleier (US Army infantry/Pittsburgh Steelers), Tech Sergeant Joe Louis (US Army Cavalry/Heavyweight Champion of the World), and Lt. Colonel Jerry Coleman (USMC fighter pilot/New York Yankees/San Diego Padres) were the real chumps, huh?

By the way, upon his death Ali’s personal fortune was estimated at between $50 million to $80 million. Yes, evil America had oppressed and treated so badly poor Muhammad. Even in 1967 when he turned his back on his nation, Ali was quite the wealthy young man.

I can’t help but wonder how many Vietnam Vets spent their final moments on this Earth attempting in vain to stay warm over a steam exhaust grate in the middle of a New York City winter. You can bet Ali’s declining years were nothing like that.

Yet another famous statement that many considered divisive and a swipe at his country, Ali once famously quipped, “Cassius Clay is my slave name.” Ali was born in 1942, not 1842. Perhaps his ability to read a calendar was in direct parallel to his grammatical prowess.

After all, not many slaves were ever millionaires. Maybe he was just pitching another fit, temper tantrum, whatever.

Even if I put aside his ingratitude and hypocrisy, here’s a modern condition I’ll lay directly at his feet – Ali was the catalyst for sucking almost all of the class out of professional sports. While I’m at it, let’s be honest and admit he’s the godfather every self-aggrandizing baseball player who’s ever hit a homer, and instead of showing some class and just running the bases, instead decided to stand there and admire the tater soar out of the park. That’s the Ali Effect.

Whatever happened to just downing the football in the end zone? Nah… instead we now see routines that would make the Soul Train Dancers and the entire ensemble of the Bolshoi blush with envy. That’s the Ali Effect.

Certainly understandable when a pugilist wins that he’s exuberant when celebrating, but when did conducting yourself like one of those painted frauds from professional wrasslin’ become acceptable? Since Ali, that’s when.

Actions speak louder than words. Screaming your “The Greatest” doesn’t make you so. Conducting yourself as a champion is what makes one the greatest.

Most of us have had a parent or coach tell us that when we triumph during a sporting event, “act like you’ve been there before.” That’s a phrase that really, really needs a comeback.

Will Japan apologize for murdering my cousin?

I never thought I would live to see the day that a president would be elected that hates America.

That is what we got with Obama and Moochelle they are also ignorant of America’s history.

Still waiting for Japan to apologize. Photo: By permission of Father Duenas Memorial High School.

The Memorial Day weekend of 2016 will be remembered by more than a few as the moment in history when the Commander-in-Chief of the United States Armed Forces delivered his de facto apology to the nation of Japan for the American deployment of Fat Man and Little Boy during the Second World War. Or as Obama characterized the bombing of Hiroshima, “on a bright, cloudless morning, death fell from the sky”.

Oddly enough, he never mentioned the numerous warnings the United States gave before the attack, nor was the fact that it was the Japanese themselves (not the evil Americans) who militarized the city’s rail, air and port facilities. Oh… and Obama managed to forget that 43,000 Japanese troops were stationed at Hiroshima.

What was the function in life for those 43,000 Sons of Nippon? To kill every American, British or Commonwealth soldier, sailor, airman and Marine if and when the Allies invaded the Home Islands. But that’s a different discussion for a different day.

Here’s my gripe: When will Emperor Akihito or Prime Minister Abe apologize for the murder of my cousin? But first, allow me to say I’ll at least for the moment put aside the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, the Rape of Nanking, and the Manila Massacre. I promise I won’t even bring up the fact that my mother, her entire immediate family, and thousands of other Chamorros were imprisoned at the Manenggon Concentration Camp on Guam (and yes, Americans were put to death at Manenggon for high crimes such as starting a cooking fire without permission.)

But I digress, Japan has yet to apologize for the 1944 murder of Father Jesus Baza Dueñas. For those unfamiliar with this unsung American patriot and hero, here’s at least a brief biography of this truly Homeric example of loyalty, courage and strength.

The American possession of Guam in the South Pacific, also known as “the American pillbox without any guns” was home to Fr. Dueñas and thousands of other Chamorros, the indigenous people of the Mariana Islands. A mere 180 US Marines, a handful of sailors, and the militiamen of the Guam Insular Forces staged a brief but valiant fight against the 5,600 invading Japanese approximately at the same time Hawaii, the Philippines, Hong Kong and the Dutch East Indies were set upon by troops of the Emperor.

One of the first moves the occupying Japanese forces did was to forcibly remove Guam’s Bishop Miguel Olano (a citizen of Spain) from his episcopate, and assigned to an internment camp where he was publicly humiliated by the invaders. Bishop Olano was eventually under house arrest to live with other Spanish priests in Tokyo, Japan under the protection of the technically neutral Spanish government.

But in 1942, Bishop Olano wrote to Fr. Dueñas appointing him as the Pro-Vicar (temporary leader) of the Catholic Church on Guam during the bishop’s forced removal. The bishop ordered him to “defend the Chamorros in their encounters with the Japanese government.” Along with the letter from Japan were two Japanese Catholic priests, Monsignor Dominic Fukahori and Father Petro Komatsu. These two were assigned by the Japanese government to assist in the ‘Japanification’ of the local populace.

Father Dueñas chose not to welcome the two new priests upon their arrival. In all actually, he considered them to be spies of the Japanese due to their liberal sprinkling of pro-Japanese sentiment in their sermons.

For his part, the good Father waged his own quiet form of warfare. Once, the occupying Japanese ordered Fr. Dueñas to a propaganda rally. Much to the anger of his hosts, the Padre quietly sang “God Bless America” during the forced festivities.

 That first happenstance ended up becoming a regular habit… and the Japanese didn’t fail to take notice. Especially the hated and ruthless Kempeitai (Japanese secret police).At one point, Monsignor Fukahori attempted to force the young Chamorro priest to bend to the Japanese will and cease his pro-American rhetoric. Father Dueñas flatly refused to accept the attempted orders of the Japanese Monsignor, despite him technically being senior to him. As Fr. Dueñas reminded the Monsignor, it was he, not the visiting priest from Japan, who was the Pro-Vicar of the entire Marianas Island chain.

Fr. Dueñas also condemned the two foreign clerics for their actions in support of the invading Japanese. “According to a letter of Pope Benedict XV to the bishops and priests all over the world, he said ‘never preach the honor and glory of your country but only the word of God.’” Fr. Dueñas warned them that if he should survive the war, he would do everything in his power to have them removed from the Catholic Church as priests.

Besides his personal patriotic fervor, Fr. Dueñas would also regularly instruct his flock to disobey any order that conflicted with their religious beliefs and obligations. Needless to say, Japanese patience was wearing thin.

 In one particularly heated moment, the young priest publicly proclaimed that he was answerable only to God. “And the Japanese are not God,” he made clear on more than one occasion.As the American military closed in for the eventual liberation of the enslaved Chamorros, the Japanese forced the people, at bayonet point, to fortify the island. In July of 1944, freedom was at hand, but not before a seemingly never-ending nightmare of beatings, slave labor, gang rapes and massacres had run their course.

As the American military was on the verge of landing to free their fellow Americans, theKempeitai arrested both the Pro-Vicar and his nephew, lawyer Edward Dueñas, when it was revealed that they were instrumental in keeping the lone American Serviceman, Navy Radioman George Tweed, hidden in the jungles since the island first fell two and a half years earlier.

Fr. Dueñas was publicly beaten and tortured for three days at, of all places, the steps of his church in the southern village of Inarajan. Not once did Fr. Dueñas reveal Tweed’s whereabouts or cry out for mercy. Not once.

After being taken to the village of Mangilao to await execution, Fr. Dueñas had the opportunity to escape. His reply to his friends ready to make good his escape, “No, I would rather not. The Japanese know they can’t prove their charges against me. I appreciate your offer but we must also think of our families. You must know what would happen to them if we escape. I’m positive the Japanese will retaliate against them. Go and look after your own families. God will look after me. I have done no wrong.”

Fr. Dueñas was finally beheaded only after further torture. A mere nine days after his martyrdom for his God and country, American forces returned to liberate the Guamanian people. I’m proud to say that Father Dueñas was my kinsman.

Pater Dueñas, ora pro nobis. Nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae. (Pray for us. Now and at the hour of our death)

Amen.

Videos: Portland ‘Whiteness’ event calls for $20 trillion in reparations from white people, slams capitalism

Leave a comment

This is from Conservative Firing Line.

Blacks have been receiving reparations since LBJ’s Great Society started giving them welfare.

On Thursday, Laughing at Liberal’s Michael Strickland posted several videos from another “Whiteness History Month” event at Portland Community College.  In these videos, the presenter advocates white people pay up to $20 trillion in reparations to blacks over slavery and a host of perceived wrongs.

But that’s not all.

Strickland wrote:

According the speaker, a “study last year published by social science quarterly, that the estimated amount of reparations owed to African people in the U.S. is $14.2 trillion. White people owe reparations but not only for the enslavement of Africans, they owe reparations for the ongoing colonization of Africans in the United States. And YES magazine published this really good story last year called ’40 Acres and A Mule’, and would be at least 6.4 Trillion today, in addition to the $14.2 Trillion for enslavement It’s not enough for whites to say ‘we agree with or support reparations’, we could say today ‘yeah this sounds good, let’s put some pressure on the government to pay’. What are we doing to change the material relationship that we have to oppressed Africans in the United States? How are we acting today in material and measurable ways? So when we pay reparations right now, this goes to the struggle of Africans people for power, so that they can get that $14.2 Trillion check, but also so that they can build a dual contending power. So that they can have programs that benefit African people who have been prevented, by the existed system, for gaining access to the resources that are necessary for life… White people in the U.S. are European colonizers on stolen indigenous land, that the entire European nation of white identity lives off the stolen labor and resources of colonized Africans and all other oppressed peoples of the world, who are the majority of humanity. White people are actually the minority. As well as other animals and the planet itself, it’s also an environmental (???). All white people sit on a pedestal of the oppression of African people. All white people have benefited from the accumulated value of the slave trade. All white people benefited from the European colonization of Africa. We all benefited from the European genocide against the indigenous people of the Americas and in effect, their land. All white people have a different relationship with the police than the black community. And all white people have a responsible to end our

complicity with this social system that murders and oppresses in our name. All white people have the responsibility to stand in solidarity with the African liberation. Now this is not ‘white guilt’. The call for reparations is based on a material understanding of history. It’s a scientific eval system of white Europe and white people have wealth and power, and it’s on account of this dialectal parasitic relationship with Africa that all African people, in all other nations colonized by white power. By parasitic, once again, we’re talking about the dialectic of the host and the parasite. The parasite lives off of the host, to the detriment of the host.”

Keep in mind the current Gross Domestic Product of the U.S. is just over $17 trillion.

Here’s a couple of videos from the presentation:

In this video, the speaker claims that race was invented as an instrument to promote racism:

There’s more of this madness over at Progressives Today, and can be seen here.

Again — if you have children in this alleged “school,” get them out — fast.

Middle school students ordered to stop singing national anthem at 9/11 memorial

Leave a comment

This is from Conservative Firing Line.

Shaking my head in disbelief.

 

n sane times, this would be unbelievable.  Unfortunately, we no longer live in a sane world.

WXPI reported Friday that a group of middle school students from North Carolina were ordered to stop singing the national anthem outside the 9/11 memorial in New York on Wednesday.

The reason? They didn’t have a permit.

Apparently, in liberal New York, one must have a permit to sing the national anthem.  It should be noted, however, that according to the memorial’s website, groups wanting to perform must get a permit.

“Basically, they performed approximately half of the National Anthem and they were told by security to cease and desist,” said Waynesville Middle School principal Trevor Putnam. “And they, of course, complied immediately.”

WXPI added:

The students didn’t have a permit but did have a verbal OK from one security guard, according Connie Shepherd Scanlon, to the woman who recorded video of the choir’s performance.

“I think it’s terrible, being a veteran and such,” Bill Bright, a who was visiting the memorial, said. “Trying to instill on our youth the history of our country and the importance of our country; what we have here. So why stop them from singing our national anthem?”

The video of the students singing has been shared on Facebook over 1,000 times.

The video can be seen here.  Of course, that assumes Facebook won’t pull it down.

Democratic Plantation Disorder rears its ugly head

Before Stockholm had its own stick-up syndrome, and prior to Georges de la Tourette figuring out frenzied foul-mouthed Frenchies, the Democratic Party has long ago planted the seeds of the DPD (Democratic Plantation Disorder) in the minds of more than a few blacks.

This particular phrase was made famous in 2011 by former Florida Republican Congressman Lt. Col. Allen West (US Army, Retired) and also by former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain. Not exactly voicing their opinions in a politically correct manner, both men slammed the Jackass Party for purposefully programming blacks for decades to trade their votes for government subsidized food, housing, utilities and health care.

And if the truth of the matter isn’t enough to be a burr under the Democratic saddle, the fact that both men are not only of West Equatorial African heritage, but are also descendants of slaves must be fingernails on a chalkboard to Democratic strategists

While never specifically referring to DPD, North Carolina sisters and Youtube sensations Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, better known by their nomes de internet of Diamond and Silk, have hardly kept secret their decisions to dump the Dems.

The duo have made abundantly clear that they’ve grown weary of the Democratic Party not only taking blacks for granted. Both have announced that not only have they changed party affiliation to the GOP, but are also quite vocal and prolific supporters of Donald Trump.

Speaking of The Donald, NewsMax TV host and guerrilla journalist Dennis Michael Lynch took it upon himself to conduct the proverbial man on the street interview with a demonstrating black gent who happened to have some rather incendiary things to say about the Republican frontrunner.

Sadly for said protester, accusations aren’t quite the same as guilt.

If a white man or woman was calling for a revolution to stamp out Islam from this country they would be put under the jail.

A disturbing video posted to YouTube shows the Muslim American Society’s Khalilah Sabra encouraging a second revolution in America.

“Basically you are the new black people of America,” she told Muslims attending the rally. “That we are the community that staged a revolution across the world. If we can do that, why can’t we have that revolution in America?”

“You know what you should do,” she added. “And if we do it, Allah has promised us the same victories that he granted to those who came before us.”

Here’s the video, posted by Counter Jihad:

Counter Jihad added:

he recent violence at a Donald Trump rally was an un-American display of violence and suppression of free speech. But even worse. it was an example of a dangerous new alliance between a number of radical leftist groups including Black Lives Matter and the Muslim Students Association.

There’s only one problem.  We’ve already had a revolution to ensure freedom for all

‘Three Little Pigs’ banned from classroom for potentially offending Muslims

Screw these goat humping future suicide bombers.

Go back to your Muslim sewer and worship your pedophile prophet Mohammed.

unnamed

Citing a report at the UK Daily Mail, theWestern Center for Journalism reported Friday that the head teacher of Park Road Junior Infant and Nursery School in Batley, West Yorkshire in Britain, has banned books mentioning pigs from the classroom because they could be offensive to Muslims.

The war on pigs was not limited just to the three little pigs and their infamous crusade against the big bad wolf, but to all books mentioning the farm animals.

Jack Davis added:

“Recently the head teacher has been aware of an occasion where young Muslim children in a class were read stories about pigs. This could have caused offence to religious sensitivities,” she said in a statement, adding that 60 percent of her students are Pakistani or Indian in origin and most of those students are Muslim.

“I very much regret that anyone should find this controversial as all we are doing is trying hard, and reasonably successfully, to ensure that all of our children are awarded the respect that all human beings deserve,” she said.

While the books were banned from the classes of those under seven years of age, the school said they can still be found in the library.

Exit question: How long before Attorney General Loretta Lynch threatens to prosecuteschool administrators int he U.S. for having books mentioning pigs?
