In Russia, they have Putin. In America, we have bastards on the bench


The entire media and, by extension, the servile conservative media, is focused on Russia 24/7. But the real problem is that the courts in this country are turning our republic into the Soviet Union. We have several hundred Putins running this country, and they are on the federal bench with life tenure — erroneously accorded the status of sole and final arbiter of every political issue.

In this episode of The Conservative Conscience, Daniel lays bare the tyranny of the courts and demonstrates how the judiciary is beyond repair. (They might even be surpassing the courts of Sodom and Gomorrah in terms of their moral dyslexia.) Just over the past week, the courts have created rights for illegal aliens, a right for Somali jihadis to immigrate, and a right for Planned Parenthood to enjoy taxpayer funding.

Yet property and conscience rights of the individual citizen are allowed to be violated as Christians and Jews are forced to service homosexual weddings with their own livelihood. Courts are also saying states can violate the Second Amendment and are ignoring the Heller decision but they must give driver’s licenses to illegals!

Sadly, so many “conservatives” aren’t conservative anymore. The same moral compass that allowed them to invite a licentious activist to give the keynote speech at CPAC is behind the appalling silence of these organizations as the courts bastardize our values, Constitution, history, and traditions.


“[T]his is a land, not of privileges, but of equal rights. Privileges are granted by European sovereigns to particular classes of individuals, for purposes of general policy; but the general impression here is that privileges granted to one denomination of people, can very seldom be discriminated from erosions of the rights of others.”

— John Quincy Adams, 1820

“If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions. If anyone wishes to deny their truth or their soundness, the only direction in which he can proceed historically is not forward, but backward toward the time when there was no equality, no rights of the individual, no rule of the people. Those who wish to proceed in that direction cannot lay claim to progress. They are reactionary. Their ideas are not more modern, but more ancient, than those of the Revolutionary fathers.”

— Calvin Coolidge, 1926
