New Poll: Conservatives See Democrats Working for Minority Rule Through Supreme Court

An almost unanimous 99% of those responding to a neww FedUp PAC poll say that liberal Democrats “rely on the courts to overrule the majority” of Americans and that they oppose any judge who “would rule impartially according to the Constitution and the laws.”

Protecting intellectual property

Jenny Beth Martin and Thomas Massie, Washington Times

The U.S. patent system and the constitutional protections of intellectual property undergirding our patent system have played a vital role in fueling America’s innovation. But the constitutional rights that have made our nation so successful and prosperous have come under assault over the last decade, as a destructive effort now underway systematically chips away at intellectual property rights.

109 Conservative Leaders Demand Prompt Kavanaugh Supreme Court Confirmation

In a statement released through the Conservative Action Project 109 leaders of the conservative movement demanded that the Senate promptly confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh so the Supreme Court will have a full complement of nine sitting justices when the next term of the Court begins on October 1, 2018.

New Poll: Conservatives Say Kavanaugh Will Boost GOP In Midterms

Almost 95% of those polled by FedUp PAC say the Kavanaugh nomination will boost the GOP in the midterms because “most Americans support the Constitution and want Supreme Court justices who will follow it.”  Less than 4% think the nomination will hurt Republicans this fall.

Will Brett Kavanaugh Stand For Property Rights?

There’s lots of talk about where Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh stands on the Roe v Wade abortion decision and if he would vote to rescind it. There is another very controversial Supreme Court decision made just a few years ago, supported by Anthony Kennedy, the Kelo decision, that conservates should be asking about during Judge Kavanaugh's vetting.

Our Rules of the Game: US Constitution

Walter E. Williams, CNS News

We should demand that Supreme Court justices act as referees and enforce the U.S. Constitution. If they don't and play favorites with different groups of Americans, as we've seen, the potential for conflict among the American people is enhanced. Who is appointed to the high court becomes the all-consuming issue. The question is not whether a justice would uphold and defend the Constitution but whether he would rig the game to benefit one American or another.

Democrats’ Anti-Catholic Bigotry On Kavanaugh Will Cost Them In November

In the near term, months of televised Anti-Catholic bias from Democrats as they try to block the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh could solidify the Catholic voting trend demonstrated in the 2016 election, giving Republicans a huge advantage in the 2018 midterm and 2020 presidential elections.

Democrats Don’t Fear Brett Kavanaugh, They Fear The Constitution

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

Some of the anger aimed Donald Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is partisan bluster meant to placate the activist base. Still, most Democrats were going to get hysterical about any pick, because any conservative pick was going to take the Constitution far too literally for their liking. For those who rely on the administrative state and coercion as a policy tool — forcing people to join political organizations, forcing them to support abortion, forcing them to subsidize socially progressive sacraments, forcing them to create products that undermine their faith, and so on — that’s a big problem.

Trump Appoints Kavanaugh Liberals Go Nuts

While liberals are going nuts making Judge Brett Kavanaugh out to be a rightwing ideologue, his record tells a different story of a judge committed to applying the law and the Constitution as written. That may be a radical idea to liberals and Democrats, but it is the view that held sway in our judiciary for almost 150 years.

Trump Narrows SCOTUS Choices To Three

The nomination of the next Supreme Court Justice may be the most important decision of the Trump presidency and will define President Trump’s legacy for generations to come. We urge President Trump to choose a nominee who will be not just good, but great in the mold of Justice Antonin Scalia, and the potential nominee who most fits that profile is Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

Justice Kennedy Retires: Beware The Souter Mistake

Justice Scalia was noted for upholding the rule of law, respecting the proper role of the judiciary, and acknowledging the separation of powers. Unlike Justice Souter, he was never sidetracked by trying to appease or please his progressive colleagues in their pursuit of political correctness over the constitutional rule of law.

What The Supreme Court Said And Didn’t Say About The Travel Ban

The majority of the Supreme Court rejected the claim that Trump's Executive Order illegally discriminated against Muslims, concurring with Chief Justice John Roberts that, “The sole prerequisite set forth in federal law is that the president find that the entry of the covered aliens would be detrimental to the interests of the United States. The president has undoubtedly fulfilled that requirement here.”

California Dreaming

Conservatives are concerned that tech billionaire Tim Draper's proposal to split California into three states would put more Democrats in the U.S. Senate,  but there’s no constitutional requirement that all of the new jurisdictions be admitted as states. They could just as easily be admitted into association with the United States on the same basis as Guam or Palau are, thus adding no Democrats to the Senate.

Masterpiece Cake: Supreme Court Emancipates Christian Slave

After Masterpiece Cake, religious persons who have been persecuted by state and local enforcers of the Left’s anti-religious agenda now have the right to introduce evidence of bias and to obtain relief when a government’s demand for tolerance becomes merely a cover for the Far-Left to persecute those who wish to live according to Biblical principles.

America’s Next Generation Of Leaders Forged Here

Just about the time you decide, after watching too much of brat-activist David Hogg on TV, that America’s future leaders are all anti-constitutional Leftists along come the winners of the Tennessee Star's Constitution Bee and the National Bible Bee to reassure you that all is not lost.

Conservatives Question Possible Syria Strike

The Constitution gives the war-making power to Congress, not the executive branch. "Promising war by tweet, insults not only the Constitution but every soldier who puts their life on the line,” Senator Rand Paul tweeted, referring to President Trump’s tweet singling out Russia for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

Rep. Doug Lamborn: Pentagon Rejects Atheist “Chaplain”

"I applaud the Navy for upholding a traditional definition of the chaplaincy, which has been repeatedly confirmed by Congress and the DOD. The installment of an atheist chaplain would inevitably open the door to a host of chaplains representing many other philosophical worldviews," said principled limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Doug Lamborn.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Wakes Up

While things are far from perfect at DOJ conservatives can take heart that the Attorney General has forcefully taken on one of the most important challenges facing the Trump presidency and constitutional government; California’s “sanctuary” for illegal aliens policies.

Act Now To Prevent Militant Atheist From Becoming Navy Chaplain

In a bizarre act straight out of the Obama playbook for social engineering in the military, the Navy Chaplain Appointment and Retention Eligibility Advisory group is recommending that militant atheist Dr. Jason Heap be appointed to serve as a secular-humanist chaplain in the Navy.

Minnesota Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Phillip Parrish Gets It

Phillip Parrish, a Minnesota Republican gubernatorial candidate is being criticized for saying he does not consider Islam to be a faith and that it is "the antithesis of the Constitution." Finally, a national political candidate who gets the threat Islam poses to constitutional liberty.
