‘Settled Law’ and the Supreme Court

After President Trump’s nomination for the Supreme Court tonight I fully expect liberal heads to explode. All of the leaked finalists have a record that will send the left into a conniption. I’m expecting the nomination to be Judge Raymond Kethledge, but Trump might surprise me and nominate Amy Coney Barrett, who I believe would be the better choice. Regardless of who gets the nomination, the Democrats are going to be in opposition. As Senator Graham said this morning, the Democrats would oppose Trump’s choice even if it was George Washington.

The number one thing the left is worried about with this nomination is keeping abortion legal. I’ve lost track of how many politicians, pundits, and self-appointed political analysts on Twitter have adamantly demanded that Trump’s nominee be someone who will respect ‘settled law’ or ‘established law,’ and they go on to mention Roe v. Wade. They don’t seem to realize that the opinion to overturn is not Roe […] → Keep reading

Sacrificing Principles for Political Expediency

There’s nothing like an election to show how much value people place on their principles. For those on the left, casting a vote for the most politically selfish of reasons is effortless since the left has no principles. Those on the right used to be guided by conservative principles, but it seems to be becoming more common for the right to abandon principle in favor of the same politically selfish reason exhibited by the left. Win the seat, at all costs, and the character of your candidate is irrelevant.

The dictionary defines principles as “an accepted or professed rule of action or conduct.” For those on the left, the only accepted or professed rule of conduct is to use an elected position to promote leftist ideals and programs. Any degenerate who does that will always be voted for, defended and supported by those on the left. Bill Clinton is the chief example of this premise with many others on […] → Keep reading

Hoping President Trump Proves Me Wrong

All throughout the primaries and the campaign, I was never on the Trump train. I have never believed that Donald Trump was a decent man, a true conservative or that he was the right choice to lead our nation. I have written before about why I did not support him and his candidacy, so I will not rehash all that. At this point, it is time to let it go. Donald Trump will be the 45th president of the United States.

New presidential administrations always bring change and if Donald Trump fulfills his promises I have to believe this will be a change for the better. Obama’s socialist agenda and dictatorial decisions did much damage, but America has always been resilient when recovering from disastrous leaders who damaged our nation.

I have concerns about Donald Trump, that he is not a true conservative. During the campaign, he took conservative positions on many issues and made promises that were very […] → Keep reading

Trump Is Right and He’s Done Republicans A Huge Service

Donald Trump’s comments about illegal immigrants seem to be dominating the news lately. The media have made it the story and have taken great glee in reporting about the backlash The Donald is receiving for what he said. Macy’s, Serta mattresses, Univision, NASCAR and NBC have all either cut ties with Trump or announced they will be terminating agreements with him. My first thought after reading all that was to wonder how in the world Donald Trump has his own line of Serta mattresses. Who would want that? But I digress. The Donald doesn’t seem to care about all the damage, saying on Fox & Friends, “I think it’s bad for my brand. I don’t care. You know maybe I’m leading in the polls, but this is certainly not good. I lose customers. I lose people.”

But what exactly was it he said that has made him the target of all this backlash? I’ve seen it misquoted on a few […] → Keep reading
