On Gorsuch and Such… Day Two

The Democrat clown show lasted more than 11 hours yesterday.  As a public service, I’m posting an assembly of short clips of stalwarts such as Feinstein, Franken, Durbin, Coons, and especially Senator Pat “Depends” Leahy. Rush gave him that nickname because the first time he was on the Senate Intelligence Committee (how’s THAT for an oxymoron?), he purposely made Reagan’s plans to attack Libya public. He was removed from his committee assignment then, but as is always the case with pestilence, he returned. Watch the clip of this bald fraud and see if you can tell whether or not he’d been drinking or at least hung over. “Mumbles” would be a more appropriate moniker.

FNN: Sen. Leahy Asks Gorsuch About GOP Treatment of Merrick Garland, Obama’s Supreme Court Pick

They did their best to trap Judge Gorsuch, smear him or sully his record. What was first and foremost, apparently, was that they wanted a promise from him not to try to overturn Roe v. Wade.  Abortion is the sacrament to the religion of Liberalism and must be protected at all costs.  There were light moments ,and you must see what his obituary would be. Any senator who votes against this very good man should be beaten severely with their own bank book.

Timely new tv ad ‘The Ginsburg rule’ destroys Dems about to pound Judge Neil Gorsuch

“Democrats are attacking Judge Neil Gorsuch because he won’t promise to support their political agenda,” a voiceover in the ad begins. Then in a “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander” moment, the ad pivots to the 1993 confirmation hearings of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, during which she refused to answers posed to her by senators — in excess of 70 times.

Her repeated refusal prompted then-Sen. Joe Biden to come to her support.  “You not only have a right to choose what you will answer and not answer, but in my view you should not answer a question of what your view will be,” he told her during the course of the confirmation proceedings.

Gorsuch Makes Minced Meat of Dick Durbin’s Gotcha Attempt

Senators on the Judiciary Committee took turns spending thirty minutes grilling Gorsuch.

When it was Sen. Durbin’s (D-IL) turn to bat, he flamed out. Gloriously.

“Do you believe that there are ever situations where the cost of maternity leave to an employer can justify an employer asking only female applicants and not male applicants about family plans?” Sen. Durbin asked.

To which Gorsuch sternly replied, “Those are not my words and I would never have said them.”

“I didn’t say that,” said Durbin.

“I asked you if you agreed with this statement.”

“And I’m telling you I don’t,” Gorsuch scowled.

Dem Senator Tries, Fails To Pin Down Gorsuch On Hobby Lobby Ruling

The case, which Gorsuch heard as an appeals judge and which was later heard by the Supreme Court, asked if for-profit corporations could bring claims under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).  In this instance, the owners of Hobby Lobby said they had a religious objection to providing certain forms of contraception to their employees. Gorsuch ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby, attracting criticism from Coons.


Coons asked Gorsuch why he ruled in favor of allowing for-profit corporations to bring claims under the RFRA.

Gorsuch responded that the law as drafted did not distinguish between natural persons and corporations, and that corporate personhood was a well-established principle of law. He further explained that the government conceded in that case that a non-profit corporation could bring a RFRA claim.

Coons rebutted that it was a “big leap” to take those facts and apply them to for-profit corporations.

“The position you’re advocating is a fine position,” Gorsuch responded. “It’s a respectable position. It’s a good position. It was adopted by precisely two justices of the Supreme Court.”

Gorsuch was referring to the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case. Two of the four dissenters in the case, Justices Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan, declined to join the portion of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s opinion, which held for-profit corporations or their owners cannot bring claims under the RFRA.  Only Ginsburg and Justice Sonia Sotomayor have taken the position RFRA doesn’t apply to corporate entities.

Coons then pivoted away from Hobby Lobby and asked generally about judicial deference to the beliefs of religious objectors.

What Gorsuch Would Want In His Obituary

The 49-year-old jurist then produced an at-times emotional two-minute monologue of what he would like his obituary to to be. It’s an assignment he gives his students at the end of each semester, Gorsuch told Sasse.

“They hate it. They think it’s corny. Well, it might be a little corny,” Gorsuch said with a hint of self-deprecation.

He continued:

“And people want to be remembered for the kindnesses they showed other people, by and large. What I try to point out is, it’s not how big your bank account balance is, nobody ever puts that in their draft obituary, or that they billed the most hours, or that they won the most cases. It’s how they treated other people along the way. And for me, it’s the words I read yesterday from Increase Sumner’s tombstone. And that means as a person, I’d like to be remembered as a good dad, a good husband, kind and mild in private life, dignified and firm in public life. And I have no illusions that I’ll be remembered for very long. If Byron White is as nearly forgotten as he is now, as he said he would be, I have no illusions, I won’t last five minutes; that’s as it should be. The great joy in life, Shaw said, is devoting yourself to a cause you deem mighty before you are thrown on the scrap heap. An independent judiciary in this country, I can carry that baton for as long as I can carry it, and I have no illusions I’m going to last as long as you suggest, and that’ll be good enough for me.”

Hillary Clinton: 100% PRO-ABORTION

2015_04 23 Hillary on abortion

Clinton is taking the Debbie Wasserman Schultz position on the dismemberment of pain-capable babies. According to both of these TOP women in Democrat Party leadership, the “government should have NO role” in deciding where, when or how the lives of unborn babies get snuffed out.

Clinton also condemned the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision that upheld the conscience and religious rights of Pro-Life business owners to refuse to pay for abortifacient drugs. So obviously she believes government SHOULD have a role in deciding what religious beliefs and freedoms are acceptable and which must be violated and/or forcibly changed.

And just to be clear …

  • This isn’t just about Debbie and Hillary.
  • This is the POLICY of the DEMOCRAT PARTY.

Left vs Right in Simple Terms

Last month at the left-wingnuts’ Netroots conference, Sen. Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren (D-MA) issued Eleven Progressive Commandments.

This week, former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) issued the Conservative Response.

2014_08 Warren v Palin commandments

1. Elizabeth Warren: “We believe that Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement, and we’re willing to fight for it.”

Sarah Palin’s response: “We believe that Washington, D.C. needs to take less of our money. It needs more scrutiny, fewer bureaucrats, and it needs a reminder of the principles laid down in the Constitution that our leaders swear to defend. Furthermore, we believe crony capitalism is infecting both sides of the aisle in D.C. We’re working really hard to root it out of our party. Senator Warren, what are you doing to root it out of yours?”

2. Warren: “We believe in science, and that means that we have a responsibility to protect this Earth.”

Palin’s response: “We believe in science and God’s magnificent creation overflowing with natural resources. That means we have a responsibility to honor Him by protecting the earth as we develop our resources in an environmentally sound way for mankind’s use.”

3. Warren: “We believe that the Internet shouldn’t be rigged to benefit big corporations, and that means real net neutrality.”

Palin’s response: “We believe the Internet shouldn’t be censored by the world’s tyrants. That means President Obama should reverse his disastrous decision to hand over control of Internet domain names to the U.N., where it will come under the thumb of authoritarian regimes like Russia and China.”

4. Warren: “We believe that no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, and that means raising the minimum wage.”

Palin’s response: “We believe in lifting Americans out of poverty and into sustainable jobs. That means government needs to butt out of employer-employee pay issues. And quit over-regulating business and increasing taxes. It drives up operating costs — that’s what affects wages.”

5. Warren: “We believe that fast-food workers deserve a livable wage, and that means that when they take to the picket line, we are proud to fight alongside them.”

Palin’s response: “We believe … wait, I thought fast food joints … don’t you guys think that they are of the devil or something?  Liberals, I thought you wanted to send those evil employees who would dare work at a fast food joint to purgatory or something until they all go vegan?! Wages and picket lines, I dunno, they’re not often discussed in purgatory, are they?

“We believe in America where minimum-wage jobs are not lifetime gigs. They are stepping stones to a good job with sustainable wages. It teaches work ethic. We believe in helping Americans climb the economic ladder, not get stuck on the first rung. A strong economy with good-paying jobs comes from free enterprise, not from a top-down, bloated, big-government, command-and-control economy.”

6. Warren: “We believe that students are entitled to get an education without being crushed by debt.”

Palin’s response: “We believe that students learn to not make decisions that result in a lot of debt. And we believe that schools need to be more accountable for the insane increase in tuition.  …  It’s no accident, Elizabeth, that the rise in tuition corresponds with the rise in government intervention. More government isn’t the answer.”

7. Warren: “We believe that after a lifetime of work, people are entitled to retire with dignity, and that means protecting Social Security, Medicare, and pensions.”

Palin’s response: “We believe a pension is a promise. It must be honored. We do that by using common sense and prioritizing budgets that once and for all will end waste and fraud and the crony capitalism and the stupid political decisions that are bankrupting our nation. We believe that in order to keep faith with future generations and fulfill our current commitments to our seniors, we must enact sensible entitlement reform.”

8. Warren: “We believe — I can’t believe I have to say this in 2014 — we believe in equal pay for equal work.”

Palin’s response: “We believe — I can’t believe I have to say this in 2014 — we believe in equal pay for equal work. And President Barack Obama should abandon his hypocritical practice of paying women less than men in his campaigns, in his administration, and in the White House.”

9. Warren: “We believe that equal means equal, and that’s true in marriage, it’s true in the workplace, it’s true in all of America.”

Palin’s response: “We believe that all men and women are created equal. They claim that we are not tolerant? Well, we believe that tolerance goes both ways. That means respecting people’s right to disagree with you, instead of trying to intimidate or silence us. We believe the answer to free speech that you find offensive is more free speech, not less.”

10. Warren: “We believe that immigration has made this country strong and vibrant, and that means reform.”

Palin’s response: “We believe that legal immigration helped make this country strong and vibrant. And that means welcoming law-abiding, hard-working immigrants who wish to come here legally and pledge their allegiance to the United States of America. Furthermore, we believe, as none other than Cesar Chavez believed, that illegal immigration hurts the country. It unfairly hurts working-class Americans of all races, all backgrounds who are seeking good-paying jobs, security for their families.”

11. Warren: “And we believe that corporations are not people, that women have a right to their bodies. We will overturn Hobby Lobby and we will fight for it. We will fight for it!”

Palin’s response: “We believe women have a right to their bodies, just as babies have a right to their living, breathing bodies nestled in a mother’s womb. And anyone who wants contraception, more power to you. Continue to freely buy any kind you want, no one is stopping you. We’ll fight for the right of private businesses, including Hobby Lobby, to work with you to figure out health-care coverage themselves in any way the owners of these businesses (that they built themselves) want to, knowing that government intervention just always screws everything up.

“Furthermore, we believe that religious liberty is enshrined in our Constitution, remember?  The government has no right to coerce people to violate their religious beliefs. And if they try to take any of our Constitutional rights away, we will fight for them.”

Palin had “one final thought for Sen. Warren and her would-be progressive populists.”

“We conservatives believe, as Ronald Reagan said, that you can’t be for big taxes, big government, big bureaucracy and still be for the little guy. We stand with the little guy, who is being bullied and beaten down by the progressive left’s failed policies of yours, Elizabeth Warren.  We stand for free men and free markets — the twin ideals that made this nation strong, peaceful, and prosperous. We say, God Bless America. We hope you say the same, Senator Warren.”

Good news! S. 2578 was defeated!

2014_07 16 S 2578 defeated

  • Inexplicably, Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid co-sponsored the bill, then was the sole Democrat who VOTED AGAINST IT!
  • Among those who voted FOR the bill were Democrat Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey, who ran as a pro-life advocate in 2006 and 2012, and three Republicans who ran on the Republican anti-abortion platform.

July 16, 2014: Senator Blunt Debunks Democrats’ False Claims [13:28]

On Wednesday, July 16, 2014, U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) spoke on the U.S. Senate floor to debunk false claims made by Senate Democrats regarding the Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Supreme Court ruling, which found that the Obama Administration infringed on Americans’ First Amendment right to freedom of religion.

This speech is longish (13+ minutes) but very much worth listening to, because he explains just how much the Democrat Party has CHANGED in just the past ten years.

“Everybody is entitled to his own opinion. But everybody is not entitled to his own facts.”

Holly Hobby Lobby

When Holly Fisher vented on Twitter about how she lost her baby’s pediatric cardiologist thanks to Obamacare, the Always-Tolerant, Ever-Caring “It’s For The Children” Leftists declared her a hate target.

If you find this confusing, please remember that Lefties consider only other Lefties to be REAL in any way. In their teensy weensy little minds, Conservative women are not Real Women, so making rape and death threats against them doesn’t count as making War On Women.

One of them said as much to Holly: “Conservatives aren’t human to me. They’re subhuman scum with no hearts or souls.

Earlier this week, Holly had some fun, tweeting a photo of herself wearing a Pro-Life T-shirt and enjoying a drink from Chick-fil-A while standing in the parking lot of a Hobby Lobby. It got 5 MILLION likes in just one day. Holly also got tweeted a lot. Kudos and thumbs up from the “subhuman scum” and the usual round of hate-filled verbal sewage from the tolerance police.

TWO more SCOTUS wins for freedom

It’s been a good couple of weeks for the Constitution. Coming right on the heels of two unanimous Supreme Court smack downs of Obama’s federal over-reach, SCOTUS ruled that non-union home healthcare workers cannot be forced to pay union dues and that closely held corporations cannot be forced to violate their religious beliefs.

2014_06 30 Hobby Lobby wins

Had Hobby Lobby lost their case against the HHS mandate, the Green family might well have shut the corporation down rather than violate their beliefs. That would have been 572 stores closed nationwide, and thousands of jobs lost.

Other business owners were waiting for the decision as well. E.g., Autocam which employs 1,500 worldwide and 660 employees in the U.S. Their case was also headed to SCOTUS, but it is so similar that the Hobby Lobby decision basically settles it in their favor.

The Left-Wingers demonstrated their well-known passion for civility and tolerance by misrepresenting the decision as “preventing women from having access to birth control” and threatening (with lots of profanity) to burn down Hobby Lobby stores.

The pathologically lying ignoramus otherwise known as Obamacrat Senator, Barbara “don’t call me ma’am” Boxer, sneered at the SCOTUS decision, making the “case” that Hobby Lobby never filed “moral objection to men getting viagra” and that “vaccines may be next.”

Best tweet responses:

  • Boxer is so dumb, her strawmen need Viagra to stand up.
  • Protip: If you have to bring Viagra into a discussion about birth control, you don’t really have any idea of what you’re talking about.
  • Too bad Boxer and the Party of Science don’t have time to do actual research before they open their mouths.
  • 1) #HobbyLobby already covers birth control. 2) Viagra doesn’t abort babies. #derp
  • Viagra brings things to life; abortifacients, quite the opposite.
  • Why is no Leftie worried about a woman’s right to the free practice of her religion?

For the record, Hobby Lobby pays for insurance coverage for more than a dozen forms of contraception. Their objection was to paying for chemical abortion drugs (RU-486, Plan B, the Morning After Pill) which Lefties mis-classify as contraception.

Islamic revolutionaries advise _Resident Øbama on foreign and domestic policy

  • 1987: The FBI had sources inside the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood network reporting that the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) was a front for the MB. He told the FBI that he is “convinced that this organization has a secret agenda which includes the spread of the Islamic Revolution to all non-Islamic governments in the world which does include the United States.” He also provided a secret ISNA document that “clearly states that ISNA has a political goal to exert influence on political decision making and legislation in North America that is contrary to their certification in their not-for-profit tax returns.”
  • 1988: A Muslim Brotherhood document listed ISNA as part of its “apparatus.”
  • 1991: A Muslim Brotherhood document listed the ISNA and its components among “our organizations.”
  • 2009: A federal judge upheld the designation of the ISNA as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity and an unindicted co-conspirator in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, because of “ample” evidence linking ISNA to Hamas.
  • 2013: ISNA president and some high-ranking members of the group toured the White House and met twice in March with President Obama and his high level advisers about immigration and Middle East policy.

Persecution in America

2012_01 02 Matt Drudge tweets

In January of 2010, Pro-Abortion protesters illegally blocked the sidewalk outside a Louisville abortion clinic. Pro-Life sidewalk counselor David Hamilton walked through the Pro-Abortion line while speaking with a woman entering the abortion clinic and was arrested. The case was correctly dismissed.

Almost a year later, despite the fact it was pro-Abortion protesters who were blocking the sidewalk AND the case against Hamilton had been dropped at the local level, Barack Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder filed charges against Hamilton under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act.

This lawsuit was part of a campaign of intimidation on the part of the Pro-Abortion Obama Administration in which AG Holder filed numerous lawsuits against Pro-Lifers for trivial offenses that should have been and often were handled locally.

So far, the effort has been a colossal waste of taxpayer money and an outrageous abuse of the rights of American citizens whose only “crime” is to disagree with the anti-baby agenda of the Left-Wing thugs in Washington.

Due to the valiant efforts of the Life Legal Defense Foundation on behalf of individual citizens targeted by the massive, well-funded Department of Justice Obama machine, Hamilton’s case was recently dismissed without an injunction and without a fine.

This is good news. But the fact remains that charges like these should never see the light of day in the United States of America. Even worse, more serious cases, like the one pending against Hobby Lobby, continue.
