Could be 'Restructured;' Urge It
to Drop 2nd Amendment Case

Original Article

Five Democrat senators have filed a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court, urging it to stay out of a pending Second Amendment case and warning it that a majority of Americans now believe the "Supreme Court should be restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics." The case, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. City of New York, is the first major challenge to gun laws since 2010, the senators said. According to SCOTUS blog, the New York State Pistol and Rifle Association, representing gun owners who live in the city, are challenging the city's ban on transferring licensed, unloaded guns anywhere outside city limits --

The Dems have little or no regard for the separation of powers designed by our Founding Fathers. For that matter they seem to have no regard for anyone or anything except their own attempt to regain power at any cost.

They have abused the power of their office and should resign, immediately. But Dems have no shame, and wouldn't do the right thing, even when caught with their pants down - which happens pretty often with Democrats.

Politicization of the Supreme Court began under Democrats (remember Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas, Bret Kavenaugh, etc.?) and the infringement on legislative power by judicial activist judges. Now they violate separation of powers by threatening a coequal branch of government.

Maybe the liberals who enacted the law in NYC should have thought a bit more before they enacted it, which likely violates the Constitution. That 5 hard-core Democrat Senators decided to write a letter, no less, stating their demands is unprecedented, I believe. It proves they aren't able to set-aside their biases and judge things independently. It's this type of hardened opinions that is destroying the legal system's "a jury trial of your peers".

The first time the Dems threatened to mess with the Court was under Tsar Roosevelt. It was the direct cause of our now perverse reading of the Commerce Clause, whereby everything is interstate commerce. Everything. Not just the commerce that involves two states. Everything. That means the federal government had newly discovered constitutional authority to regulate Everything. We are on our way to unwinding that mess, along with the invented constitutional right to abortion. And they Democrat response is the same as any other issue -- don't try to win the game by the rules; they try to win the game by changing the rules to so that loss is impossible. This describes Democrat policy since Clinton took office.

Can't have the Court keep ruling in Trump's favor now can we? The Court has done nothing wrong except rule from the bench with commonsense. That favors Americans. A crime in their book.

Because they KNOW that the Sullivan law is highly likely to wind up in the dustbin of unconstitutional laws, just like the gun laws in Chicago did. And now Illinois has (because it was REQUIRED TO do it) a shall issue concealed carry law. Unfortunately, they do not recognize any out of state CCW permits, but it is much better for folks in Illinois now. Probably coming to NY, too.

Threatening political retaliation against the court in a filed brief constitutes direct contempt. There is likely no precedent for this, The Court cannot ignore it, but short of a finding of contempt the Court should at least strike the brief in its entirety and indicate it will not be considered. The vote should be 9-0.

NOW they want SCOTUS to keep out of politicized issues? What, like they did in Roe v. Wade? Or in nullifying anti-sodomy laws? Legislating leftist from the bench is treated as a virtue in the double-standard of the Left, just like preaching sermons that promote Democrats is encouraged, while preaching against the anti-biblical tenets of 'Progressivism' (like abortion and gay marriage) is treated like justification to revoke the tax-free status of churches.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker has signed a law allowing Illinois to take its own action to slow climate change. The Democrat approved legislation this week that repeals the Kyoto Protocol Act of 1998. It limited state action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The U.S. withdrew from Kyoto in 2001. But Illinois had put it into state law so it was bound by rules the federal government no longer intended to follow. Naperville Democratic Sen. Laura Ellman says it sends a message that "Illinois is ready to get serious about climate change." The law she and Evanston Democratic Rep. Robyn Gabel sponsored takes effect Jan. 1.

Citing a new study arguing that the media give too much prominence to climate skeptics in their coverage of climate issues, a group advocating for governments to declare a climate “emergency” says those responsible for such editorial decisions are “sacrificing the future of our planet for the sake of appearing objective.” “This idea of equating climate deniers with scientific experts is a dangerous practice which frames the threat to our planet, our existence as an ongoing debate,” said Margaret Klein Salamon, founder and executive director of the New York-based The Climate Mobilization (TCM). “I don’t think sacrificing the future of our planet in exchange for a look of ‘objectivity’

Anyone interested in justice was entitled to feel a Chris Matthews thrill up their leg when Tulsi Gabbard went after Kamala Harris for her record as state attorney general at the Detroit debate. Gabbard pointed out that as California’s AG, Harris refused to allow DNA testing that would’ve exonerated a death-row inmate and prosecuted over a thousand marijuana cases—though as a candidate she later laughed with a radio host about her own pot smoking past. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Harris’s tenure. There’s the case of Daniel Larsen. After 11 years of incarceration, a federal judge ruled that he was innocent.

This month, ICE agents conducted the largest workplace raid in more than a decade across five food processing plants in Mississippi, netting the arrests of 680 illegal aliens. That same day, though, ICE officials said they released about 300 of the illegal workers back into the U.S. on “humanitarian grounds.” More than 200 of the illegal workers had prior criminal records and a federal criminal investigation is expected to result in convictions of the employers at the plants.

Perhaps when you think of the founding of the United States, you think of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Federalist Papers. Now, the New York Times wants to "reframe" your understanding of the nation's founding. In the Times' view (which it hopes to make the view of millions of Americans), the country was actually founded in 1619, when the first Africans were brought to North America, to Virginia, to be sold as slaves. This year marks the 400th anniversary of that event, and the Times has created something called the 1619 Project. This is what the paper hopes the project will accomplish:
