Feinstein: Constitution A ´Living Document;´
´Originalism... Very Troubling´

Daily Wire, by Robert Kraychik

Several Senate Democrats were unified in deriding originalism as a judicial philosophy during Monday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to Supreme Court justiceship Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), ranking Democrat of the committee, described originalism as a "very troubling” jurisprudential approach. The Framers, she added, intended for the Constitution to be continuously reinterpreted over time (emphasis added): “Judge Gorsuch has also stated that he believes judges should look to the original public meaning of the Constitution when they decide what a provision of the Constitution means. This is personal, but I find this originalist judicial

I can´t find anywhere in the United States Constitution where it says open to interpretation in the future...

There is a section that talks about amending said Constitution though.

Most democrats that I know don´t believe in rules. They believe in fairness which they get to determine on a case by case basis.

I often ask them how the would like the idea of interpreting the Constitution to round up all Jews in concentration camps.

Well I never want that to happen.

It is very troubling for brain dead idiots like her for a judge to actually decide cases based on the law, and not what they wish the law was. Living things can be killed and die. Sorry but our beloved Constitution is the rules of the game, and are not changeable based on mobocracy. Try going to Brazil and undermining their country´s constitution and government and leave ours alone. Hey girl, it´s happy hour! You better get going!

If the Constitution were a living document, you could change it anytime you wanted, and the agreement would be meaningless. Feinstein is from Ca. so a well known lunatic.

The Democrats want no document (Constitution) or law to hinder their quest to control American´s lives. They want to be able to tell Americans what they can think, what they can eat, what they can breath, what they can read, where they can read, what kind of healthcare they can have etc. Thus any document that prevents that must be dissed, disregarded or attacked.

When you listened to those liberal Democrat Senators today give their opening statements at the confirmation hearing, it sounded like they were pushing an ultra liberal political agenda from Mars. Their ldeology seemed centered on only confirming liberal Democrat activist judges whose primary agenda was to issue what they considered to be a "fair" ruling in a liberal Democrat political sense while ignoring the US Constitution and laws passed by the Congress. They had no problems at all with judges making new law on the bench, as long as those judicial edicts were in confirmation with the liberal Democrat social agenda. There is no doubt if the liberal Democrats don´t implode politically, and someday obtain the majority in the Supreme Court that they will immediately attempt to ban all modern semi-automatic handguns, rifles, and shotguns that they consider to be "assault" weapons, even if by doing so they cause what amounts to a second civil war.

Feinstein: a living idiot
Living Document......Very Troubling.

When you throw out "originalism" you have a document which means absolutely nothing. My opinion has just as much value as some brain dead liberal, and vica versa of course, but in the end the document, which is intended to rein in and limit the federal government and guarantee liberty to the individual, does neither.

Dianne Feinstein is NOT an attorney. She´s owes her entire political career to Dan White. She had run for SF mayor TWICE-----and lost both times. Her career was dead in the water----until Dan White ran amuck and assinated George Moscone.

Law that can be reinterpreted to someone´s (a judge´s) will or agenda is NO law. The next judge that comes along might decide something entirely different. This would redefine what is legal as a beast that lurches in one direction and another based on the prevailing winds. As a citizen, I could be acting lawfully today and on someone´s whim, tomorrow I am a criminal.

That is insane.

It is the same consideration they give the Bible. They don´t like what it says, therefore, it can´t possibly be relevant today. Progressives hate any authority but their own. Truth be told, if they could they would get rid of both and replace them with their most learned wisdom. Instant chaos and mayhem would ensue. They would be at the mercy of their own failed ideology. They are quite like toddlers screaming, you aren´t the boss of me!

All eyes on Trump, Ryan relationship

Not long after President Donald Trump told his Twitter followers to watch Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro´s show Saturday night, the host and Trump ally took to the screen to deliver a harsh rebuke of House Speaker Paul Ryan. "Paul Ryan needs to step down as speaker of the House," Pirro said. "The reason? He failed to deliver the votes on his health care bill. The one trumpeted to repeal and replace Obamacare. The one that he had seven years to work on. The one he hid under lock and key in the basement of Congress. The one that had

Speaker Paul Ryan and House leaders had been toiling behind closed doors for weeks assembling their Obamacare repeal bill as suspicion on the far-right simmered to a boil. So on March 7, just hours after Ryan unveiled a plan that confirmed its worst fears, the House Freedom Caucus rushed to devise a counterstrategy. The few dozen true believers knew that pressure from House leaders and President Donald Trump to fall in line would be immense and they were intent on not getting boxed in. In a conference room in the Rayburn House Office Building, the group met that evening and made a

The Wall Street Journal is delighted to hear Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s tough words on North Korea and China. “Let me be very clear: The policy of strategic patience has ended,” Mr. Tillerson said, referring to the Obama Administration policy of waiting for North Korea to give up its nuclear ambitions or collapse. A day earlier he criticized “20 years” of a “failed approach” to the North’s nuclear ambitions. I, too, appreciate the secretary of state’s candor. But straight talk isn’t going to be enough.

The Washington Post detailed the House GOP’s fight over the ObamaCare repeal and replacement plan this week, rounding up the dramatic details of leadership’s fight to win support for the measure. At one point, the paper said, House Speaker Paul Ryan (Wis.) got down on one knee to plead with Rep. Don Young of Alaska – the longest-serving Republican in Congress -- to support the bill. (He was unsuccessful.) The moments highlighted by the Post during the Republican conference negotiations show what a tough battle Ryan and his deputies faced in whipping the vote.

President Trump is reportedly creating a new White House innovation office that will be led by his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner. The White House Office of American Innovation will be announced Monday, the Washington Post reported, and will report directly to the president. The idea is to help meet some of the goals President Trump pledged to accomplish during his campaign, such as working to help with veteran care and fight opioid addiction. The new office, which is described in the Post report as a “SWAT team” to fix the federal bureaucracy, is working with tech giants such

With the words "credibility questioned" prominent on the screen, Scott Pelley once again is doing what network evening-news anchors generally don´t do: abandoning careful neutrality in favor of pointed truth-telling. He is talking Thursday night about President Trump. And here are some of the words he is using: "his boasting and tendency to believe conspiracy theories." It´s nothing new. Pelley, of CBS Evening News, has set himself apart — especially in recent weeks — with a spate of such assessments, night after night. Perhaps the most notable one, on Feb. 7, went like this: "It has been a busy day

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday stepped up his criticism of House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan to replace him. "Without further ado, Speaker Ryan should replace Chairman Nunes," the Senate minority leader said from the floor. "If Speaker Ryan wants the House to have a credible investigation, he needs to replace Chairman Nunes." Nunes caused an uproar last week when he told the press that he had seen intelligence showing that members of President Trump´s transition team had been caught up in surveillance operations — without first discussing the information with fellow committee members.

Is a guaranteed paycheck from the government, with no strings attached, the answer to the relentless rise of automation? The concept might sound far-fetched, but a so-called universal basic income (UBI), is currently one of the most hotly debated policy topics being floated as a means to address income inequality and the disruption that technology poses to the workforce. UBI is being tested in Finland and other international markets, but has received decidedly mixed reactions. Meanwhile, developments in robotics and artificial intelligence have grave implications for the labor force. A report issued this week from consulting firm PwC found that

Speaking at the White House, Mr. Sessions said his department is preparing to dole out more than $4 billion in funds this year, but will try prevent any of it from going to sanctuaries. “Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Mr. Sessions said.
