The Dangerous Supreme Court
Case Nobody Is Talking About

National Review, by David French

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 1/16/2018 5:32:02 PM

Late yesterday afternoon, I filed an amicus brief in one of the most dangerous free-speech cases in a generation. For the second time this term, the Supreme Court is considering whether the government can compel Americans to express or support ideas they find repugnant. The first case, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, was the talk of the nation. This case, National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) v. Becerra, has almost entirely escaped public attention. (Snip) The state of California has enacted a law, the so-called FACT Act, that requires pro-life crisis-pregnancy centers to prominently place a

Comments:
California is the vanguard of the totalitarian left that wants to force you to think their way and no other way. It´s no accident that Google and Facebook are located there.

These pro-life crisis centers should just put up signs saying that if you want to kill your baby call 555-1212 or whatever the number is and they will kill it for you at little or no cost.

Anyone who actually studied a history book knows how this kind of oppression by the state ends. I might not live to see how everything has to fall apart before the average dope in the street understands what is going on, but it will happen here because all of us are on a cultural train that derailed sometime after the first Civil War.

Can mosques be required to advertise for Orthodox Judaism as an alternative? Using CA´s logic they would. But they would never go there.

The federal judiciary is s mortal danger to our freedom. The fact that these cases even exist cries out for the dismantling of the federal courts. It´s only a matter of time before these un-elected, un-accountable tyrants go European and force national suicide.

The end goal of all this is to force people to participate in the child sacrifice ritual.
If all are guilty, then none are guilty.
Some of the people who murder their kids feel some remorse afterward. That would be diminished if none are innocent except the dead children.

Leftists never ascribe to the ´Turnabout is Fair Play´ doctrine that promotes true equality and freedom. According to this doctrine, the State sponsored abortion providers would have to post signs stating there are alternatives to abortion and show phone numbers to alternative facilities. Promote a law requiring the above and enjoy the fevered fits of millions of Leftards.

As longtime patrons of SteynOnline well know, every so often I´m minded, after the latest Absurdity of the Day, to caution that "sometimes a society becomes too stupid to survive". The latest example thereof, alas, is too sad and pathetic even for my dismal catchphrase. On Monday the Attorney-General of the United States addressed the National Sheriffs Association thus: "(Snip) Since our founding, the independently elected sheriff has been the people´s protector, who keeps law enforcement close to and accountable to people through the elected process...

I’ve been looking at the insanity of the Democrats and self-styled progressives (there is so much of it on display) from the signs in front yards proclaiming they believe in science – as though science necessitated belief – to the signs in expensive neighborhoods proclaiming that they welcome illegals as their neighbors. (Snip) I’ve heard women proclaim they’re marching for lost rights, though no one can answer me on what rights they lost. Oh, yeah, I’ve also been informed, loudly, in public spaces, that liberals are afraid to speak their mind and that the awful dictator, Trump, has chilled their speech.

The Portraits and the

Federal portraits often aren´t that great. There´s plenty of evidence of that all around Washington D.C. And famous people are surprisingly hard to paint. There are plenty of strikingly different portraits of George Washington. So the normal response to the Obama portraits would be a shrug, and maybe a few jokes if you don´t like them. And maybe even if you do. But the Obamas are the center of the most delusional cult of personality that the media has yet spawned. And so we get bizarre pieces like these.

Free-marketers are right that tax cuts stimulate economic growth that in turn lead to expanding production and eventually more federal tax revenue. But the problem traditionally has been that to obtain tax reductions, Republicans also have had to sign on reluctantly to larger expenditures. Or, worse, they willingly believed they could spend more, simply because more money poured into the federal treasuries. George W. Bush doubled the national debt. After running against Bush profligacy (remember the Chinese credit card trope), Barack Obama doubled it again by doubling Bush’s levels of borrowing. Conservatives blasted Obama for his even greater lack of thrift. The

I couldn´t take much more of the news. The miscreants reportedly involved in the illegal surveillance of the Trump campaign were fleeing the FBI; parties in the intelligence agencies were contradicting one another with sloppily conceived alibis. On top of that, the agencies involved looked both more stupid and more partisan than ever. The latest was the New York Times account of how the CIA paid Russians a $100,000 down payment on a million-dollar contract to tar the President (doubtless with disinformation). The viewing of the promised "compromising video" was – get this – in a room in the Russian

Remember in 1993 when 400 FBI confidential files on Reagan and Bush appointees turned up in the White House? It has all the elements of a polarizing scandal, with none other than Hillary Clinton at center stage — plus highly sensitive confidential documents, unexplained actions involving the FBI, and allegations that federal investigators were weaponized for partisan political purposes. (Snip) The Hillary Clinton/FBI scandal described in the lead paragraph above began in 1993, only months after she and husband Bill began what turned out to be an eight-year residency in the White House.

Well, the memo was released. You can read it in full here, and I recommend you do so because, on the evidence of much of Friday´s TV and radio coverage, most commentators only want to talk about it in the most shallow political terms. Whereas the questions it raises about state corruption in an age of round-the-clock technological surveillance are far more profound. Let´s start with something I wrote back in October: It seems a reasonable inference, to put it as blandly as possible, that the [Christopher Steele] dossier was used to justify the opening of what the Feds call an "FI" (Full Investigation), which in turn was used

Trump Restores the ´We´
American Greatness, by Roger Kimball    Original Article

In The Meaning of Conservatism and several other books, the English philosopher Roger Scruton argues for the importance of the first-person plural—the “We” that binds us together as a community, a people, a nation. Tuesday night, in his magnificent State of the Union Address, Donald Trump did something similar. Trump’s speech was full of memorable lines: the “new American moment,” “Americans are Dreamers, too,” “complacency and concessions only invite aggression and provocation.” But perhaps the most memorable line, playing off the president’s campaign slogan, came at the end: “It is the people who are making America great again.” Any dispassionate observer has

Having been one of the early targets of social media censorship on Facebook, YouTube et al, I have advocated for anti-trust action against these bullying behemoths. It is good to see establishment outlets such as the Wall Street Journal and National Review coming to the same conclusion, or at least asking the same questions. Just this week, Facebook launched its latest of many attacks on my news site, the Geller Report. It labeled my site as "spam" and removed every Geller Report post -- thousands upon thousands of them, going back years – from Facebook. It also blocked any Facebook member

Fact-Checking 6 of Trump’s Claims

In his first State of the Union speech, President Donald Trump made quite a few claims and assertions, and we’ve examined six of them. Statement 1: “Our massive tax cuts provide tremendous relief for the middle class and small businesses. … A typical family of four making $75,000 will see their tax bill reduced by $2,000—slashing their tax bill in half.” The facts: A Heritage Foundation analysis estimate found that the tax bill for a married couple who are homeowners with three children earning $75,000 in annual income would “decline by $2,014, or 115 percent, to $0, plus a refundable credit of

Notwithstanding my antipathy to the ersatz-monarchism of the State of the Union, I see the blogger Chillingworth heard a certain Steynian note in yesterday´s speech. Me six years ago: In September, the 10th anniversary of a murderous strike at the heart of America´s most glittering city was commemorated at a building site: the Empire State Building was finished in 18 months during a depression, but in the 21st century the global superpower cannot put up two replacement skyscrapers within a decade.

Properly understanding sex, gender, gender identity, and gender dysphoria will continue to be pressing concerns in 2018. A proper understanding is a prerequisite for properly forming people in the truth and properly ministering to people in need. As new gender ideologies are promoted throughout America, their lies will impact not only those who suffer from gender dysphoria, but all children who need to mature in their self-understanding as a boy or girl, man or woman, a potential husband or wife, father or mother.

President Trump’s personal lawyer admitted on Tuesday that he paid off a porn star who allegedly had an affair with his boss — but insisted that the payout was his own money and not connected to the Trump Organization or the presidential campaign. Michael D. Cohen said in a statement to The New York Times that he paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 in 2016 — but did not give the newspaper a further explanation about why the payment was made. “Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,”

(Video) - Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is running for the Senate in Utah. Three people with direct knowledge of the plan tell the Associated Press Romney will formally launch his campaign in a video on Thursday. His first public appearance as a Senate candidate is scheduled for Friday in Utah. The people who provided the information asked for anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about Romney´s plans in advance. Romney, who is 70, is seeking to replace 83-year-old Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch, who is retiring after more than 40 years in the U.S. Senate. The former Massachusetts governor

The Prince of Wales appears to have made a dig at US president Donald Trump while speaking about the need to protect the world´s coral reefs from climate change. Trump once declared global warming as a ´hoax´ and withdrew the United States from the Paris climate change agreement almost as soon as he entered office. Speaking at an event held this morning in London, Prince Charles spoke about the urgent and pressing need to unite in order to protect the world´s coral reefs against the combined threats of climate change, pollution, plastic and over fishing.

Democrats immediately politicized the Florida school shooting that left at least 17 people dead on Wednesday and demanded gun control legislation, even before it was known how the shooter got his gun and whether any proposed legislation would have stopped it. Some Democrats blamed Republicans for Wednesday’s tragedy, without citing any evidence whatsoever. “Republicans should pray for forgiveness, for not only their complacency and dereliction of duty, but in contrition for the men, women and children we continue to lay to rest because of senseless gun violence and the cowardly inaction from Congress,”

Student leaders at a high school in the San Francisco Bay Area have decided that the national anthem is racist and outdated and have banned it from school rallies. According to multiple area news outlets, the Associated Student Body at California High School in San Ramon made that decision based on a phrase in the rarely-played third verse. “It was brought to our attention that the national anthem’s third verse is outdated and racially offensive,” Ariyana Kermanizadeh wrote in an open letter. “We had nothing but good intentions by removing the song so that we could be fully inclusive to our student

Washington - There is "ample evidence" that the Trump campaign colluded with Russians, but only special counsel Robert Mueller can decide if it´s enough to prove a crime beyond a reasonable doubt, the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Wednesday. "There is already, in my view, ample evidence in the public domain on the issue of collusion if you're willing to see it," Rep.

Former President Barack Obama demanded unspecified “common-sense gun safety laws” after the Florida school shooting on Wednesday that left 17 people dead. “We are grieving with Parkland. But we are not powerless. Caring for our kids is our first job. And until we can honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep them safe from harm, including long overdue, common-sense gun safety laws that most Americans want, then we have to change,” Obama wrote in a statement posted to Twitter.

He preened with guns and knives on social media, bragged about shooting rats with his BB gun and got kicked out of school — in part because he had brought bullets in his backpack, according to one classmate. He was later expelled for still-undisclosed disciplinary reasons. The portrait of Nikolas Cruz, suspected of fatally shooting 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and wounding 15 others at his former school, is a troubled teen with few friends and an obsessive interest in weapons.

Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday night that members of his party won’t revise their countermemo, despite requests from the White House to do so. “We’re not going to make any revisions to it. The only question is what redactions will be made. And obviously we’d like to keep those to a minimum,” Schiff told reporters. “The White House has a different interest. I think their interest is in redacting anything that doesn’t reflect well on the White House,” Schiff added.

Was the presidential portrait of Barack Obama made in China? Sources say artist Kehinde Wiley — who painted the former president before a background of greenery and flowers — has studios in China and produces most of his work there. “It’s his base of operation,” said art critic Charlie Finch, who has known Wiley and appreciated his talent since they were students at Yale. “He has dozens of assistants working for him.” While Obama sat for Wiley for several hours, the portrait may have been sent to China to be completed. “Normally, Wiley sketches out the important parts, and assistants fill out the rest,”
