We live in a nation so great that we consider each an every one of our citizens to be capable of glory.

That’s exactly what our Constitution makes clear:  This nation will always guarantee that its citizens have the right to pursue happiness, and that they are all created equal.

If you’re someone who feels otherwise, I don’t care to have you reading any further.   Period.

Trending: Biden At Final Debate: Nobody Lost Their Private Health Insurance Under Obamacare

Now, as we lurch forward into a new age of freedom, the US Supreme Court is beginning to shift in the direction of pure and unadulterated equality as well…even in matters of military machismo.

A military draft that applies only to men is unconstitutional, a federal judge in Houston has ruled, saying that excluding women is no longer justified because they can now serve in combat roles just as men do.

Judge Gray H. Miller of Federal District Court in the Southern District of Texas took note of the Supreme Court’s 1981 ruling that the exclusion of women from the draft was “fully justified” because women then were not allowed to serve in combat. But the Pentagon abolished those restrictions in 2015, opening the way for women to serve in any military role for which they could qualify.

“While historical restrictions on women in the military may have justified past discrimination, men and women are now ‘similarly situated for purposes of a draft or registration for a draft,’” Judge Miller wrote in his ruling. “If there ever was a time to discuss ‘the place of women in the Armed Services,’ that time has passed.”

The ruling was certainly controversial, but it was far from timely.

Though no one has been conscripted into the United States military in more than 40 years, the Military Selective Service Act requires all American men to register when they turn 18, in case a draft is reinstated; they remain eligible through age 25. Men who do not register can be fined, imprisoned and denied services like federal student loans.

Report: Bernie Sanders Looking To Be A Cabinet Member In A Biden Administration

Need another reason to vote Trump?

The Democratic Party has really walked a tightrope with their followers these last 4 years or so, swaying ever so subtly to the left, if only for the sake of showmanship, however. In both the 2016 and 2020 elections, the party itself has allowed Vermont Senator and avowed Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders to make late runs into the primaries, despite the organization having no plans to actually get him on the ticket. The reason for this: Bernie Sanders’ supporters are an incredibly vocal contingent of the larger party, and the only outlet of enthusiasm the Democrats can often muster. They’re also a great recruiting tool for the youth vote, and we know just how much the Democrats love to court younger voters. At the conclusion of the 2020 primary, Sanders was out in favor of the centrist, Joe Biden. The former Vice President, desperate to tap into the youthful exuberance of the Bernie wing of the party, somehow wrangled an endorsement out of the Vermont Senator, shocking many. But maybe there was a little quid pro quo going on? From Fox News: U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders is reportedly interested in serving in Joe Biden’s Cabinet if the Democrat wins the presidency — with plans to push for more “progressive voices” in the nation’s leadership. Sanders, an independent from Vermont who was Biden’s most serious Democratic challenger during the primary season, has reached out to contacts within Biden’s transition team with a specific interest in the labor secretary position, two sources told Politico. “I can confirm he’s trying to figure out how to land that role or something like it. He, personally, does have an interest in it,” one source close to Sanders told the outlet. When asked directly, however, Sanders wasn’t all that forthcoming, citing his work to help get…

The same guy who busted Virginia Governor Ralph Northam for wearing blackface in his youth is back in the spotlight. This time, it appears he caught another Democrat red-handed. From AZCentral: Mark Kelly, the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate, said he was falsely accused of dressing up for Halloween decades ago as Adolf Hitler, the Nazi dictator responsible for World War II and the genocide of 6 million Jews. National File, a conservative news site, published images Friday asserting the image was Kelly, along with images from a yearbook reportedly dating to the mid-1980s. The site did not quote anyone verifying the images were of Kelly. LOOK: The Kelly campaign is denying… Stay tuned for more…
