Re: Anti-Abortion Pro-Life

If the Justices overturn Roe v. Wade, it may take more than voting in a whole new Congress to fix things. If the Supreme Court says that abortion is illegal under the Constitution then it is very probable that nothing short of a Constitutional Amendment may bring it back. And the chances of an Abort...

Re: Anti-Abortion Pro-Life

I think we should see through the deception: Georgia, Alabama, and the other Wire-Hanger States do not intend or plan to spend a dime or lift a finger to investigate or prosecute some woman or doctor. They really expect and intend that their new anti-abortion laws will be challenged in court before ...

Re: The Complete List of Democrats Running in 2020

It turns out that Super Tuesday - simultaneous primaries in 14 states - is scheduled for March 3rd 2020, only a week or two after a couple of isolated primaries. I fully expect a bunch of the current candidates to drop out by or immediately after Super Tuesday. Then we should be down to only four or...

As the court of last resort, the Supreme Court is not bound by stare decisis, but may overturn its previous holdings if it realizes that an error was made.

Re: Arpaio (et al.) criminal contempt case

Altho the President may pardon criminals, if he pardons those involved in crimes which the President himself "advised", this would be grounds for impeachment. And we have this from the Founding Fathers in the 1788 Virginia Convention to ratify the US Constitution: https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt...

Re: Arpaio (et al.) criminal contempt case

I would suppose that EVERY instance of Executive Clemency is an encroachment on the judiciary. But it was part and parcel of Anglo-Saxon law (and the law of a lot of other cultures) and, frankly, I know of no specific instance of a Presidential pardon being invalidated.

Re: The Democrats have to impeach him....

If the Democrats want to go ahead with impeachment, in the face of a stonewalling Republican Senate, then at the very least the Democrats should amass evidence from more than just the Mueller Report. The case for impeachment should be airtight, not just flamboyant.

I am curious as to how foreign donors get any benefit from subsidizing the NRA.

Considering that both sides have been indoctrinated to resort to firearms, I wouldn't be very surp...

More than a distinct possibility. Hopkins seemed to have no protection or assistance from the Aryan-type prisoners, which means they essentially let him get beaten if they were not doing the beating themselves. Larry Hopkins sounds like the kind of misfit who would rather tell an awkward lie when ev...

Re: Resolution of Inquiry Re Impeachment; Commission to Declare President Incapacitated Re 25th Amendment

The House should postpone consideration of any impeachment resolution because, once the President is in jeopardy of impeachment then he has an excuse for ignoring subpoenae by Congressional committees. This is shown by the case of diplomatic officer George F. Seward in 1875, who refused to comply wi...
