      heads up. I think Theresa May’s gov’t is about to fall. Boris Johnson has just resigned, he’s the third. She’s supposedly addressing the Commons right now, I’m trying to find it somewhere.

      This is a long vid with Rufio Panman, a man who knocked out an Antifa thug who came at him with a metal baton. It’s in Portland. The group Rufio is in is called ‘Proud Boys’ meaning they’re proud to be men. They were holding a prayer vigil when they were attacked by Antifa. Yes, it’s Alex Jones. So what. Just watch the first couple of minutes when the thug is decked. Antifa sends women in front to provoke someone into hitting them & the armed guys stand in back. The police stand down like everywhere else. Up here the police protect the muslims against a small group of peaceful Israel supporters.

      From Daily Caller:

      “Former Hillary Clinton adviser Philippe Reines on Saturday posted the address and contact information of a Virginia bookstore on Twitter after the storeowner called the police on a customer who insisted on harassing former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

      Richmond, Virginia bookstore owner Nick Cooke called the police on Saturday after a woman verbally accosted Bannon and then refused to leave the store, Cooke said. The woman reportedly called Bannon a “piece of trash” before Cooke asked her to leave.”

      Reines stated he was merely providing a public service and not calling for harassment.

      yeah, the criticisms aren’t exactly well thought out. He worked in the Bush WH? And that Elena Kagen hired him. so what? It’s as knee jerk as anything you’d expect from the left. I understand Rand Paul didn’t like his NSA ruling (didn’t violate the 4th amendment) but he was right on that. Meta data CANNOT identify the individual, so I’ve never understood what Paul’s problem was. He’s excellent on the 2nd amendment and Ann Coulter LOVES him on immigration. The dipshits at zip’s place are practicing identity politics instead of looking at the issues.

      Tell me Kavanaugh is not another Kennedy fence sitter?

      OK he’ll get an easier time getting past the Senate but there is a reason for that. A few Democrats will support him because he’s not as bad as some of the other candidates in their opinion. Who cares what the Democrats think? They are in a culture war of total destruction and RINOs and some lets all be nice and settle down are in a culture war of compromise. That will never win in a war of no quarter. That the elephant in the Republican’s sitting room (pardon the pun) wighting a cultural war that isn’t a total war without let or quarter. That’s why the Republicans have been losing this culture war for the past half century.

      This is a quick primer, ‘Five Things You Need To Know’. This one is very important


      2. Curbing the administrative state.

      Kavanaugh has a solid record in curbing the excesses of President Barack Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Most notably, in White Stallion Energy Center v. EPA, Kavanaugh dissented from a ruling that upheld the EPA’s decision not to consider cost when determining whether it is “appropriate and necessary” to regulate power plants. In the Supreme Court decision Michigan v. EPA (2015), Justice Antonin Scalia quoted Kavanaugh’s dissent in holding that the EPA’s refusal to consider costs was unreasonable.

      In a powerfully originalist move, Kavanaugh attacked the EPA’s attempt to adapt the language of the Clean Air Act (1970) to permit regulation of an environmental program that Congress did not anticipate at the time the act was signed into law. If the EPA could “exceed its statutory authority” in this case, then other agencies would be able to “adopt absurd or otherwise unreasonable interpretations of statutory provisions and then edit other statutory provisions to mitigate the unreasonableness.” Another Scalia opinion relied on this reasoning.

      Not all of Kavanaugh’s cases involving the EPA curbed its executive overreach, but these moves are notable.

      Also notable, in October 2016, Kavanaugh established that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was unconstitutional, and made the CFPB director removable by the president of the United States. While that decision was later reversed in January of this year, his decision is promising.

      Kavanaugh is considered on the 2nd and even 1st Amendment rights as rock solid but he’s a bit questionable when it comes to the 4th, and when covert electronics get involved as with the unconstitutional snooping by US agencies in the peoples’ communications.

      @ eaglesoars:
      Yet the National Review’s Justin Walker pointed out, however, that by respecting Kennedy’s view on the issue and explaining why the Obama policy still violated the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, Kavanaugh likely helped win Kennedy’s vote to overturn the decision of the D.C. Circuit Court.

      i.e. Kananaugh facilitated the fence sitting Kennedy.

      Kavanaugh’s background with Obamacare stinks as well.

      So Kavanaugh compromises on the two ket items the plague of murdered babies in 21st Century US and institutionalised Obamacare…. and all Kavinaugh’s compromises was a single Democrat Senator changing sides when it comes time to vote.

      As I said. just another go along to get along republican and a Kennedy type fence sitter.

      The Dems must be pleased.

      Fox News’ Shannon Bream forced to ‘bail’ on live show at Supreme Court after feeling ‘threatened’ by protesters

      Fox News anchor Shannon Bream said she had to “bail” on her live show from the Supreme Court after feeling “threatened” by protesters.

      In a pair of tweets Monday evening, about an hour after President Trump announced his nomination of federal appeals court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, Bream alluded to a “volatile” atmosphere on the scene.

      “Very few times I’ve felt threatened while out in the field. The mood here tonight is very volatile. Law enforcement appears to be closing down 1st Street in front of SCOTUS,” she said in one tweet, adding later: “Literally had to bail on our live show from #SCOTUS. Moving the show back to the safety of the studio. See y’all at 11p @FoxNews.”

      Her Fox News show begins at 11 p.m. At the outset of her show, Bream was back in the studio, but made no mention of the protests. Later in the program, during an interview with Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., who noted they were supposed to talk on the steps of the Supreme Court, Bream said, “It got a little too rowdy out there at the court tonight.”

      Even before Trump announced his pick at the White House, protesters began to gather in front of the Supreme Court. Upon picking Kavanaugh, protesters chanted, “Kavanaugh has got to go.”

      @ eaglesoars:
      Mostly Kennedy’s blind eye to the awful in law travesty that is R v. W. It was very dodgy law back last century when it was passed and it’s STILL dodgy law now. Not to mention the total immorality of murdering tens of millions of Americans. Still you only ever hear arguments about the dodgy points in law, whilst all of the blood and gore is swept under the mat by generations of Americans, who think that they are somehow ‘better people’ when making comparisons with the NAZIs and Communists regimes who carved a swath through humanity last century.

      Kennedy was wrong last century and Kavanaugh is still wrong supporting Kennedy now.

      Legalistic arguments don’t rise to the level of Just Decisions I’m afraid and in both Kennedy and Kavinaugh all I see is nuanced complex legalism writ large.

      If you seen what I’ve seen then you wouldn’t be quite so flippant about if not the Swamp then certainly about the Deep Authoritarian State and their covert agencies. Ft Hachucha would make your hair curl in freight, let alone ‘the Barn’ at the NSA.

      The crack in the bell of American exceptionalism and Constitutionality of their Republic was seven back in 1776. The flaw was the conflation of Church with Religion, so much so because of potential religious conflict between differently churched colonies. I whole agree with the notion of separation of Church and State, especially given the plethora of different Protestant churches that grew, split, and reformed and split again. That’s very different from Separation of Religion and State, where the laws governing a Republic based on the Law has to be based first on Natural Law.

      Many Christian Founders were perplexed and even the likes of Jackson nearing the end of his life saw the error of his ways by conflation religion and Natural Law with church! Without adherence to Natural Law everything beyond that is based on foundations of sand. That was the fatal flaw in the US Constitutionalism. An almost perfect system but one with a flaw that will eventually bring down the whole house on which it’s built …. or not! Kavanaugh is NOT the judge to save the constitution, as he’s mired in legalism and can’t see the need for Justice beyond Black Letter Law.

      I don’t understand what you’re referring to

      As America’s 250th anniversary nears, it is timely to look again at that legacy stemming largely from its most relativistic doctrine: the false teaching that Church and state should be separate, and that religious freedom is an inalienable right. For a start the conflated words Church and Religion only add to the errors. I’ll grant you Eagles that the Founding Fathers were not relativists, and many indeed were Christians, but the American doctrine that conflates ‘church’ with religion – regardless of the intentions originally behind it – is relativistic, not Christian.

      Claiming that people have a moral right to religious freedom places all religions, true and false, on the same moral level, thereby divorcing morality from truth, that is the essence of relativism. With the Law being based on irreligious there is only relativism left and the strong foundations of Natural Law are absent the USA.

      This has allowed perhaps the most catastrophic effect of relativism to occur in America from the time of the Founding Fathers all the way to now. Had the Founders separated religiously based Natural Law from their blanket ‘Church’ concept, when defining the relationship with the State, the corruption of relativism might have been avoided within US Constitutionalism, and the Nation wouldn’t have suffered the disaster of the Civil War and wouldn’t be in the state of incipient ‘Cultural Civil Cold War’ now.

      I’m not sure I understand what you are getting at here. Yes, Roe v Wade is bad law, pretty much every Constitutional Law Scholar in America agrees that it is bad law and should be overturned on that ground alone. However, Kennedy was not on the Court when it was decided, and to my knowledge, Roe V Wade has not been on the SCOTUS docket at any time since.

      Glad that we c an agree that R v W is bad law from a purely legal standpoint. My beef with Kennedy is that his arse was full of picket fence sitting marks when he had the chance to make R v W front and centre again and sort it out once and for all. The States should be the determiners of the legality of R v W legislation NOT the Federal Government.

      And we haven’t even touched on the destruction of Natural Law in the US and the rise and rise of relativism ever since 1776 and before. Moral relativism allowed slavery to hang like an albatross around the neck of the US and the US reaped the whirlwind and still reaps it today …. among other fruits of the relativistic legalism that underpins US law, that cuts across Natural Law.

      You reap what you sow.

      Historically Republics seem to last between 150 and 300 years until the contradictions outweigh the uses. Democracies are even more short lived .. Go ask the Greek states and the Romans….. or for that matter the French.

      @ Aussie Infidel:

      the legislature is more than free to take up roe v wade…and that is where law should be made.

      personally, it should be up to the states. just about everything should be up to the states unless otherwise stated in the constitution.

      R v W is nothing more than a ball bat used to club prospective justices during the confirmation event. the left wants it for that reason, the right likes it too as it brings in the $$$ and keeps the base all whipped up. it’s not going away any time soon.

      @ coldwarrior:
      Yet all it would take is for the SCOTUS to say that the law is flawed and push it back down to the States to sort out. I agree that the Feds have no place except the basic pillars on which a Republic stands. Everything else should be pushed downwards for lesser entities to decide and eventually we the people.

      BIG government means poor governance, dangerous administrative governance and expensive government, whenever it’s been tried.

      How long does it take to figure that out?

      heads up. I think Theresa May’s gov’t is about to fall. Boris Johnson has just resigned, he’s the third. She’s supposedly addressing the Commons right now, I’m trying to find it somewhere.

      I do hope that you’re right. She’s been dithering now for more that 12 months when she should have been putting actual systems in place. Her heart was never in BREXIT and it shows. Now she doesn’t have time to get all the ‘ducks lined up in a row’ before October to give time to sort out the administration of the plan by the Q1 2019 deadline.

      Either there will be a confused half pie exit or a Hard Exit. Either way May is responsible for this clusterfuck.

      Jacob Ree-Mog is waiting the call to reform the government as the May led government spirals augers in.

      Fortunately the Labour leader is do dreadful as to be unelectable and that gives the Conservatives a little breathing space.

      U.S. citizens warned to keep a low profile during Trump’s visit to London this week. So much for ‘allies’ in a nation which has become increasingly supine to Islam. As Aussie Infidel says: SPIT.

      Grest news that all of those soccer kids were rescued from that cave.
      US military participated in the effort so I am confused. On the Sunday morning talk shows panelists refer to Trump
      as a white supremacist without rebuttal all of the time. Hey , if you can’t trust NBC and CNN who can you trust, right?
      does Trump know that the kids are not Caucasions ?

      Really it’s just London-stan and possibly a few of the Midlands cities like Sheffield and Birmingham one might have to be a little careful . The countryside is totally OK to under and explore.

      @ Aussie Infidel:

      ever have a day when you want a complete do-over? NOTHING works the way it’s supposed to? The copier doesn’t copy,the laptop doesn’t boot, hooks fall off walls, the faucet doesn’t close, locks don’t lock – until they decide to lock when you’re on the wrong side of the door w/the fucking screwdriver? yeah, like that. I picked the wrong life to stop drinking.

      Anyhoo, Aussie, after reading thru your posts, I THINK you don’t fully appreciate the correct role of SCOTUS. It can only rule on whether a law is constitutional. It cannot make law. It CAN strike down a law if it’s unconstitutional, but that’s it. All your issues you want fixed require legislative initiative in the Congress, which truly IS the supreme branch of gov’t. I’ve seen SCOTUS uphold an anti-homosexuality law in Georgia, stating in its decision that the law sucked canal water, but it was not unconstitutional.

      I’m going to get ready for bed and hide under the covers. Maybe the jinns that toyed with me today will play someplace else tomorrow.

      In that case I guess it is a lost cause.

      Still with more Constitutionalists in the SCOTUS we might get away from Justices ‘making law’ instead of just interpreting it.

      Well, we just had someone throw a rock through our picture window. It didn’t get all the way in the house, but it did break the storm.

      We don’t have any problems with neighbors. It’s not like we’re close to them, but we give them a wave. I haven’t put any political signs out in the yard or on my car either.

      Guess it’s time to either buy a security camera system or move. I’d rather move, but we don’t really have the money.

      During the Obama years we were sending a boy (male child, not a racial epithet), now we send a man.
      He is right here. We spend a ton of money protecting Germany from Russia, then they turn around and undercut
      us on Russian trade. We free up German money so that they can buy product from Germany, not us?

      A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in Montana when suddenly a brand-new 2017 BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust The driver, a young man named Cliff in a Brioni® suit, Gucci® shoes, RayBan® sunglasses and YSL® tie, leaned out the window and asked the cowboy, “If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?”
      Bud looks at the man, who obviously is a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, “Sure, why not?”

      The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell® notebook computer, connects it to his Apple iPhone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.

      The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop® and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany

      Within seconds, he receives an email on his Apple iPad® that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses an MS-SQL® database through an ODBC connected Excel® spreadsheet with email on his Galaxy S5® and, after a few minutes, receives a response.

      Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet® printer, turns to the cowboy and says, “You have exactly 1,586 animals.”

      “That’s right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves,” says Bud

      He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on with amusement as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.

      Then Bud says to the young man, “Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?”

      The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, “Okay, why not?” “You’re a Congressman for the U.S. Government”, says Bud.

      “Wow! That’s correct,” says the yuppie, “but how did you guess that?”

      “No guessing required.” answered the cowboy. “You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You used millions of dollars worth of equipment trying to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don’t know sh*t about how working people make a living – or about cows, for that matter. This is a herd of sheep” “Now give me back my dog.”

      Actually the interpretation on which R v W was based was extremely dodgy and it’s the courts who ned to correct their extreme interpretations of the Constitution, not the legislators. Otherwise we will have the cart driving the horse with cockamamy interpretations by the guys in black driving the Legislature to plug imaginary holes in the law.
