  • Justice Roberts and Results-Oriented Justice (December 7, 2016)


    In oral arguments last week over the constitutionality of a certain statute, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts said, “Our job is to read the statute, and … if it’s unconstitutional, that’s our job. But we can’t just write a different statute because we think it would be more administrable.”

    We agree, but last year he authored an opinion that said that the words “state exchanges” in the Obamacare statute actually meant “state AND federal exchanges.” Clearly, he rewrote the statute. He did so because Obamacare would have collapsed if the law only applied to state exchanges. In his words, it would not have been “administrable.”

    Justice Robert has shown us why the Supreme Court is broken—it says it can’t rewrite the law unless, of course, it really wants to. That’s result-oriented justice, not real justice.

  • Lazy Republicans Plugging Up the D.C. Swamp? (November 30, 2016)

    For years, Republicans in the U.S. Senate told us they could not get the sixty votes needed to call for a vote on important things like a budget. But we’ve been hoodwinked.

    Fed up Americans began to study the rules, and we’ve now learned that the majority can proceed to vote on legislation without having to garner sixty votes so long as senators are given up to two opportunities to speak on the issue.

    The only “problem” is Republicans would have to stick by their offices during the day so they could come to the floor to vote on any procedural efforts to derail the process. In other words, Republican senators would have to “inconvenience” themselves by staying on the job until the job is done.

    It looks like lazy Republicans are the plug in the swamp that needs draining!

  • Being a President for All Americans? (November 23, 2016)

    Immediately after the presidential election, liberals began to call on Mr. Trump to be a president for “all” Americans. In other words, liberals want him to govern the way they want.

    But their call rings so hollow. They never called on President Obama to be a president for all Americans while he ran over the views of a majority of Americans regarding marriage, the military, immigration, homosexuality, and religious liberty.

    The biggest mistake Mr. Trump can make is to say one thing during the election and then immediately try to be the president that those who voted against him would want.

    If Mr. Trump starts worrying more about the opinions of those who were against him rather than those who were for him, then he may find himself going down with the very swamp he promised to drain.

  • Is the AG’s View of Sex a Bunch of Bull? (November 9, 2016)

    When Tennessee’s Attorney General filed a brief last week arguing that the word “husband” in one of Tennessee’s statutes should be treated as a gender neutral term in order to satisfy the demands of gay rights activists, he confused sex-related words like husband with rules of grammar. For grammatical purposes, we call words associated with biological males masculine and words associated with biological females feminine. And we use the gender neutral word “spouse” when the sex of the party in a marriage is irrelevant.

    This concept isn’t too hard to understand. “Cow” is a gender neutral term, but we still have bulls and heifers. Ever heard of cows wondering if bulls are heifers and vice versa? Don’t think so.

    And that’s why the Attorney General saying there are no difference between a husband and a wife is a bunch of bull.

  • Warring Against State Sovereignty (November 2, 2016)

    Family law has long been under the authority of the states until the U.S. Supreme Court decided to redefine marriage.

    It was bad enough that the Supreme Court took away a state’s power to define marriage, but now Tennessee’s state Supreme court-appointed Attorney General is arguing that their decision requires courts to rewrite Tennessee’s other family law statutes to judicially substitute the word “spouse” for the word “husband.”

    Essentially our Attorney General is abrogating our state sovereignty to the judiciary.  The courts are warring against the sovereignty of the states, and now the court-appointed Attorney General has joined them.

    This next legislative session, the Legislature must strip the Attorney General of his duties and transfer them, along with his budget, to a new Solicitor General position that is accountable to the Legislature instead of the courts.
