Anyone willing to set aside their own prejudices and look honestly at TV and the print media will see obvious bias against conservatives in general, and President Trump in particular. While the media praised President Obama for his handling of almost everything he did, conservative politicians and media were often chastised for their opposing opinion. Our southern border is a case in point. Though Obama was responsible for those much-maligned “cages” where children were temporarily held on our southern border, Trump was falsely blamed for installing them. When a so-called news reporter blamed Trump for killing citizens with his false information, that false info by Morning Joe was simply ignored by other liberals in the media. FOX News did mention Morning Joe’s false claim and seems to be one of the few news outlets that have a good reputation for presenting facts. At least to conservatives.
I am a conservative Christian who pays close attention to several news sources because I write a political column and need to be as sure as possible that the information I present is accurate. For example, we are a republic, not a democracy, as often stated by the media, and it states so in our Constitution.
The courts in America do not have the final say as often stated by democrats, but We the People do. Courts are not allowed to make law, and that is part of our Constitution also. An excellent case against the court is the DOMA or Defense of Marriage Act, which passed into law with about a 70% positive rating from We the People. Though it was signed into law, the court said it was unconstitutional. If congress had done its job, it would have told the court it could not rule on the matter because We the People have spoken. But they did not…allowing the court to be sovereign over the people. Our Constitution says the court can be controlled by congress with the phrase, “…with such exceptions and under such regulations as Congress shall make.”
Remember, in the U.S. the people are sovereign, not the court, the congress or the president. Sovereign is defined as, “possessing supreme or ultimate power.” The democrat party has stolen that power never granted to any party and given it to the courts, to make and remove laws. “All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a congress…” is what our Constitution says. ALL means “complete and total”, and LEGISLATIVE means “Law Making”. So, the court is not allowed to make laws Constitutionally, but democrats constantly say court rulings are the law of the land…WRONG!
America is a right-of-center nation and has been from our founding. With a liberal media and a liberal democrat party, citizens have been falsely told the court has the final say in legal matters, but that is not Constitutional. If the court is the “check and balance” on congress and the president, who or what is the control over the court? The simple answer is “We the People” as defined by our founding documents.
Look at what liberals have done to overthrow Constitutional law by the misstating of Constitutional facts. No doubt the court has to keep our laws within the confines of our Constitution, and their rulings are for congress, but it DOES NOT have the power to overrule the will of the people.
The court is part of the government and the Constitution is We the People’s limiting tool on government. Our Constitution guarantees citizen’s rights, but it also LIMITS GOVERNMENT power. Get a copy and read it as written, not as redefined by liberals.
I am reminded of an old racing engine builder who read the rule book to see how he could cheat…legally. Okay, that is an oxymoron, but I’ll explain. The book said the cam had to have the factory part number on its face, supposedly to keep the factory cam in all engines. So, the builder had a custom race cam made but with the factory number etched on the face. He was cheating but met the requirement of the rule book.
Think of democrats with that mindset, and their actions will become much clearer.
They redefine the rulebook words, twisting them to their liberal thinking.
