Gorsuch Just Dropped The Ultimate
Wedding Cake Truth Bomb

Daily Caller, by Kevin Daily

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/7/2017 7:04:34 PM

(Video) Justice Neil Gorsuch finally told the truth about wedding cakes during a contentious argument about a Christian baker’s refusal to create a custom wedding cake for a gay couple planning their nuptials. Gorsuch admitted that wedding cakes just aren’t good. “In fact, I have yet to have a wedding cake that I would say tastes great,” he said, to laughter in the courtroom. (Snip) Gorsuch’s broader point was that some creation serves both utilitarian and speech interests. The primary purpose of cake is consumption, but it might also convey creative expression. This is true of other businesses involved in a wedding

Rush noted on his program today that the baker had offered to sell these people an off the shelf cake. The baker did not want to create a ´special´ cake for the event - i. e. work with them to make a cake that was an expression of their ´union´. Obviously for a ´regular´ wedding the baker would feel that his cake would be commemorating something sacred. Not so for a gay ´marriage´. I would not either, as a Baha´i, want to [in agreement with most other religious faiths] celebrate sinful behavior. This would not be an option for me. In the past I have refused printing t-shirts with dirty words. To me it is the same thing. By creating a special dirty word t-shirt or a cake for a sinful event one would be participating in and condoning the corruption.

Re #1, they didn’ t want one of his regular wedding cakes, which he was happy to sell them

They wanted a custom job - a special design that he’d be expected to execute for them. I can only imagine...

When I was a young prison Guard, I had to escort the inmates to church services. I had to go inside the chapel with them and watch that they behaved themselves. Now, I will not go into my particular and personal religion (Yes, many here may be surprised, but I do have a faith that is very deep in my soul). Some of the churches I had to enter, to me, were the same as walking into Satan´s living room. I absolutely detested entering those churches and listening to their "Priests" or "pastors" or otherwise ululate their gibberish nonsense. But, my job was to supervise those inmates. I stayed focused on that and nothing else. Yet, even so, afterward, each time I had to do that duty, I felt totally drained, and my inner conscience was in turmoil. What kind of faithful am I to my own beliefs if i violate my conscience like that. I had options. I did not have to keep that job! I could make a living doing other jobs. I could flat out refuse the duty and take the consequences. I did not. I kept on doing it. And to this day, I deeply regret it. I keep thinking about Nazi concentration camp guards, doing their duty- forcing people into death chambers, brutalizing them, - It was their duty also, wasn´t it? Their State would have shot them if they had followed their conscience and refused the duty. Our consciences are funny little things aren´t they? I only wish I had been as strong as this cake man is.I wish I had simply said, "No." Should the state take this man´s right to obey his conscience and simply say, "No."

#1 - If I were a T-shirt silk-screener, there´s no way I would design a T-shirt that said "Celebrate Pederasty" or "F*** Trump" or "Support ISIS" or "Happy Birthday Adolph Hitler." I don´t have to design a message I happen to abhor --- religion or no religion.

A wedding cake is a message. (C´mon. What is the first word in "wedding cake"?) I don´t hate the people who asked for this message, I am simply free to decline to be the messenger.

For any reason, or what you might call no reason at all: simply because it´s my labor.

It´s about choosing free enterprise, not involuntary servitude.

Some of this brings to mind the case of two New Jersey parents who had named their children "Adolf Hitler Campbell" and "Joycelynn Aryan Nation" and had their children taken away from them by the state after a store refused to decorate a birthday cake reading "Happy Birthday Adolf Hitler". The state insisted the children were removed after investigating claims of abuse. This happened in 2009. Does the refusal of the store to supply the cake in this instance infringe on someone´s rights or do some special groups have more rights than latter-day Nazi´s?

Mythologies of Illegal Immigration
American Greatness, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 1/22/2018 8:05:58     Post Reply
The illegal immigration debate has come to a head once again. Congress remains at an impasse over a temporary spending bill that Senate Democrats refuse to support unless it includes a provision that would allow several hundred thousand illegal aliens to remain in the United States without fear of deportation. It’s a tiresome ploy by the Democrats, abetted by their allies in the media, using deceptive language to paint a false picture that blurs the distinction between legal and illegal, citizen and foreigner, justice and injustice. Enough obfuscation. Here are some of the most pernicious myths of illegal immigration, debunked. The System

There is no one I hate more than someone who tries to tell me whom I hate. For a quarter-century now I’ve made it very clear that most of my hatred—and there’s quite a lot of it, I never run out—is intra-racial. While those who have a death grip on media and education would love to pretend that I sit around all day stewing about blacks, I find myself incapable of mustering nearly the sort of searing animus toward my Negroidal brethren that I consistently feel toward liberal white coastal elites, who have their heads planted so far up their own

This weekend, Democrats -- both in and out of the media -- find themselves flummoxed with Donald Trump. Again. “Negotiating with President Trump is like negotiating with Jell-O,” Chuck Schumer whined on the Senate floor on Saturday. “It’s next to impossible.” Welcome to "The Art of the Deal." While all the little Schumers in the Senate were busy making millions as public servants, Trump was out dealing with banks and negotiating with oil sheikhs, Hollywood moguls, and trade union presidents on his way to becoming a mega-billionaire.

Democrats both in and outside the media laughed like hyenas when Saturday Night Live did a fake perfume commercial for Ivanka called, "Complicit." President Trump duly noted it, and nearly a year later, he has his own ad that links Democrats to an illegal alien who laughed in court about killing two police officers. Trump´s ad, too, is called "Complicit." Democrats are crying foul.(Video) They protest not because an illegal alien DREAMER killed two police officers and is unrepentant. No, no, no. Democrats are livid because the president just pointed out a Democratic DREAMER laughed about killing two police officers.

It’s important to remember current FBI Director Christopher Wray is not the opposition in this effort. Many of the congressional presentations to Director Wray are framed around opposition to the organization, the remaining high-level administrative bureaucrats, and how the FBI has a corrupt base of officials remaining; not Wray’s current leadership.

Private investigators believe a prominent billionaire couple found dead in their Toronto mansion last month were murdered by multiple people two days before their bodies were discovered, Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Saturday, citing a source “with direct knowledge of the parallel probe” into the deaths of Honey and Barry Sherman. The private investigation — which contained graphic details of the alleged ways the Shermans had been killed — at times contradicted early reports about an ongoing investigation by Toronto police, who have remained tight-lipped about the case over the past month. The bodies of Honey and Barry Sherman were first discovered Dec.

President Donald Trump’s speech in Pennsylvania on Thursday convinced MSNBC host Chris Matthews that Trump will be extremely tough to beat in 2020 even if Democrats take back Congress in 2018. Matthews said on his Hardball show this week that though Democrats are giddy about potentially sweeping away Republican incumbents in the fall, a good year in 2018 does not mean Democrats can defeat the charismatic Trump if he remains on message about the booming economy and as disciplined as he was on Thursday.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer gave a tepid, droning, and utterly unconvincing performance on the Senate floor this morning where he repeatedly inserted the phrase, “the Trump shutdown.” The problem for Mr. Schumer is two-fold: First, very few watched his speech. Yes, CNN, MSNBC, etc., will replay it a few times, but none of those replays will generate as much interest as a single Trump tweet. Second, and this is even more critical, the phrase “Schumer Shutdown” is trending throughout Social Media circles – a development which has Mr. Schumer’s staff increasingly troubled.

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade. Yet they have amassed an extraordinary amount of

It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party.

Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey

Calling the Trump administration’s tax reform plan a “middle-class tax increase,” two California lawmakers introduced a bill that would force large companies to fork over half of their expected savings to the state. Assemblymen Kevin McCarty and Phil Ting, both Democrats, introduced Assembly Constitutional Amendment 22, which calls for a 10 percent surcharge on companies with a net earnings over $1 million. The plan could potentially raise billions for the state´s social services programs. “It is unconscionable to force working families to pay the price for tax breaks and loopholes benefiting corporations and wealthy individuals,” Ting said in a statement,

"We will vote today to reopen the government to continue negotiating a global agreement," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the floor. Under the bill up to be called up, the government would be fully funded through Feb. 8, and it would fund the Children´s Health Insurance Program for six years. It would also reopen the government, which has been partially closed since midnight
