Justice Clarence Thomas Launches Accusation Against SCOTUS; Says They Are Dodging Gun Cases

Published

on

Without a doubt, especially in our current times of chaos and pandemics, the Second Amendment is one of our God-given rights that needs the most protection we as a nation can possibly give it.

Especially with the sheer number of conservative SCOTUS justices on the bench. Now is a pretty good time to start hearing gun cases and putting a stop to the insanity of the left and their attempts to strip us of the right to bear arms.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem the Supreme Court is all that interested in hearing cases involving gun rights. At least that’s what Justice Clarence Thomas is saying.

The lack of action sparked some justices to dissent. Thomas slammed his colleagues for refusing to take up Rogers v. Grewal, a challenge to New Jersey’s gun-carry law that allows government officials to subjectively deny permits. Thomas—joined by Justice Brett Kavanaugh—said the state government’s requirement that residents provide a reason for exercising a constitutional right warranted judicial oversight.

“This Court would almost certainly review the constitutionality of a law requiring citizens to establish a justifiable need before exercising their free speech rights,” Thomas wrote. “And it seems highly unlikely that the Court would allow a State to enforce a law requiring a woman to provide a justifiable need before seeking an abortion. But today, faced with a petition challenging just such a restriction on citizens’ Second Amendment rights, the Court simply looks the other way.”

The last time the Supreme Court ruled on a case involving the Second Amendment was way back in 2011. There have been tons of cases involving gun control laws and the constitutionality of various states’ policies concerning the right to own a firearm, but for the most part, SCOTUS has remained silent on the topic.

Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation had this to say:

“Given the fact that the Supreme Court had a cafeteria-style menu of cases from which to choose, there is no excuse why the Court at this time chose to ignore the need to rule on any of these cases, and send a message to lower courts that they can no longer thumb their noses at the Heller [2008] and McDonald [2010] Supreme Court decisions affirming the right to keep and bear arms.”

The National Rifle Association commented that the Court’s refusal to take on these cases and controversies will enable “politicians to trample on the freedom and security of law-abiding citizens.”

“The Bill of Rights specifically includes the right to keep and bear arms because self-defense is fundamental to the liberty of a free society,” the NRA said in a newly released statement. “Today’s inaction continues to allow so-called gun safety politicians to trample on the freedom and security of law-abiding citizens.”

Liberals want to see the right to own a gun disappear for a lot of different reasons. One, they want to be able to force other individuals to go along with their program for radical transformation of the American way of life. That’s way easier to do if the populace can’t fight back.

Secondly, they truly do think their ideas are the key to some sort of utopian society that will magically do away with the sinful, fallen heart of mankind and get folks to stop being criminals. Fat chance.

There’s only one solution to the evil heart of man. The gospel of Jesus Christ.

In the meantime, while the church is spreading that message of hope and radical heart change through faith in Christ, allow folks the means to protect themselves from those who have no value for human life.

White House Announces Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

This could be a big boon for a number of American industries as well.

Published

on

Regardless of what you think of Joe Biden touting this latest infrastructure deal as a “win”, it sure is nice to see that our government isn’t completely and utterly broken in the 21st century. It took months of bickering and infighting, and more than a few moments of political pettiness, but it appears as though we may just have an infrastructure deal after all. President Biden announced on Thursday that the White House and a group of bipartisan senators had reached a deal on a $579 billion infrastructure plan. “It’s been a very long time since the last time our country was able to strike a major bipartisan deal on American infrastructure,” Biden said at the White House. Biden said he and congressional Democrats had to concede some on what’s known as “human infrastructure,” such as investments for childcare and spending on climate change. Democrats will instead look to pass additional spending in a separate bill through a Senate budgetary process called reconciliation, which requires only a simple majority to pass legislation. And, despite no one having seen the bill yet, Biden is confident that Congress will send it to his desk to sign in the coming days. The radical left will likely be the most disappointed in the bill, after having previously suggested a goal of a $10 trillion investment in climate change initiatives.

Miami Building Collapsed After Years of Sinking into the Earth

Scientists has determined the issue years ago.

Just north of Miami, in the nearby town of Surfside, there is a massive rescue effort underway as nearly 100 people remain unaccounted for in the wake of a residential high-rise’s collapse. That number was nearly double the early estimate, having risen dramatically on Thursday afternoon as more information became available to those leading the effort. The late-night collapse, which was captured on video by a nearby surveillance camera, appeared to be a sudden, freak accident, but new information seems to indicate that there might be more to this story. A Florida high rise that collapsed early Thursday was determined to be unstable a year ago, according to a researcher at Florida International University. The building, which was constructed in 1981, has been sinking at an alarming rate since the 1990s, according to a 2020 study conducted by Shimon Wdowinski, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environment. When Wdowinski saw the news that the Champlain Towers South condominium in Surfside had collapsed, he instantly remembered it from the study, he said. “I looked at it this morning and said, ‘Oh my god.’ We did detect that,” he said. But not everyone agreed with the assessment. Wdowinski said his research is not meant to suggest certainty about what caused the collapse. The building was sinking at a rate of about 2 millimeters a year in the 1990s, and could have slowed or accelerated in the time since, he said. In his experience, even the level of sinking observed in the 1990s typically results in impacts to buildings and their structures, Wdowinski said. He believes that very well could have been the case for the Champlain building in the 1990s, based on his findings. “It was a byproduct of analyzing the data. We saw this building had some kind of unusual…
