New York Gets Prime Deal

Corporate welfare is receiving a bad rap as Amazon chooses Virginia and New York to split its second world headquarters. New York has promised more than $1.5 billion in incentives to attract Amazon’s 25,000 tech jobs to Long Island City. This is an excellent deal for NYC and NYS. All the critics must just be jealous because their city lost in the bidding war. Those within New York that are scoffing need to stop listening to the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and television pundits and consider the boon that’s coming their way.

The Nuance of 'Subject to the Jurisdiction'

I watched Judge Andrew Napolitano on the Fox Business Network talk about the jurisdiction clause in the 14th Amendment, specifically, “subject to the jurisdiction thereof.”

He made the point, as I did in my previous post, that one group of people that this applies to are foreign diplomats. He disagrees with the contention that it should apply to illegal immigrants too.

The point he made was that illegal immigrants are indeed subject to the laws of the country. If an illegal robs a bank and gets caught, he will be arrested and prosecuted. Therefore, the Judge concludes, they’re subject to the jurisdiction of the United States.

Birthright Citizenship

President Trump may attempt to challenge the traditional view that constitutionally anyone born on U.S. soil automatically becomes a citizen. A sort of birthright based solely on territory of birthplace.

The outrage from the left wing media and their legal scholars who claim Donald Trump is taking a wrecking ball to the constitution are once again choosing not to be thoughtful about an issue, a.k.a. “being purveyors of fake news”. It’s their complete partisan, hair on fire, rhetoric that completely deceives and gins up the mobs in waiting.

Republicans Don’t Challenge Ford

The Republicans on the Judicial Committee continue to be intimidated by Democratic talking points like old white men can't question a woman survivor and there needs to be an FBI investigation.

It’s the Democrats that seem to set the agenda, not the Majority. Republicans are too afraid of the mainstream media to the point they’ll not fight sufficiently against the Democrat's strategy. They don’t have to play dirty like the other side, but they should at least swing back.

It’s Right that Healthcare isn’t a Right

The way Democrats frame an argument, if not outright deceitful, is at the very least spectacularly cunning. Instead of advocating the merits of universal healthcare and trying to win over the public, they instead just claim healthcare is a human right. If they can make the public believe it’s a right, then they win the issue without debating everything else. We can then wave goodbye to free market capitalism, private property and individual liberty.

Rights that are natural or self-evident are rights given to us by our Creator. The U.S. Constitution doesn’t grant us these rights, but protects our natural rights from the government itself.

The Lopsided Supreme Court

President Trump may be just getting started. His second Supreme Court pick to replace Anthony Kennedy will tip the balance of judicial philosophies on the court toward more conservative. It was already tipping in that direction, but not decidedly so as Kennedy would sometimes align himself with the judicial activists on social issues.

The left and the media are in Bork mold. They are already taking up arms to character assassinate whomever the President nominates to replace Justice Kennedy. They believe the stakes are so high that they’ll take their resistance to new lows to bury President Trump’s selection.

Uninteded Prosecutions

The Democratic leadership has been calling for a special prosecutor ever since Donald Trump won the presidency.  But this call has nothing to do with a desire to learn the truth. In fact, they really do not want the truth because it may exonerate the Trump campaign and the Democrats would lose their only hope of stopping President Trump’s agenda and picking up new seats in the midterms.

Comey’s Third Door: Delay

FBI Director, James Comey, stated in public testimony on Wednesday that he had only two doors available to him just eleven days before the Presidential election when new Hillary Clinton emails surfaced on Anthony Weiner’s laptop. The two choices he had were to either conceal these new emails from Congress and ultimately the American People or to reveal that new Clinton emails were found that may be important to the case.

He wanted the public to go back with him to October 27, 2016 and asked what would any reasonable person have done, reveal or conceal? He said in his testimony that in hindsight that reveal was still the correct position.

The Unhinged Party of “No”

As each election cycle passes, the Democratic Party seems to be going further and further to the left as if something from the bottomless pit were pulling them closer to the edge of the abyss, of which there would be no return. They could stop their descent at any time, however, through repentance, but like all good reprobates, they would rather give the Devil his due.

Russian Hackers Invade US Election

Moscow is at it again. They’ve infiltrated our election and duped the American people to elect their plant and almost red, the orange Donald Trump. That’s what some rabid Democrats want everyone to believe.

The Democrats are trying to delegitimize Donald Trump’s presidency by accusing Russia of meddling in the election. They believe Hillary Clinton was sabotaged by Russian hackers so Donald Trump would become President; Hillary would have won otherwise. There are no real facts to back up this claim, just more wild speculation from the left. 

The record does reveal, however, that key Democratic players and institutions were negligent with security, which may have jeopardized the interests of the United States. The Democrats only have themselves to blame for any security breaches and for Hillary’s loss this past November.
