Justice Subverted

The United States has had an attorney general ever since George Washington’s administration. The role of the attorney general always has been to enforce the laws of the United States and prosecute those who break the laws. The goal, from the start, was to provide even-handed justice, without showing favoritism or partiality to one’s political party. Of course, not all attorney generals carried out that task with great honor, particularly during times of highly partisan political warfare. Yet the aim… Read more »

Martin, Zimmerman, & the Rule of Law

Yesterday the special prosecutor in the Trayvon Martin case, Angela Corey, came to the podium with her team and revealed the result of their initial investigation into the shooting. They concluded there was enough evidence to officially charge George Zimmerman with second-degree murder. Corey, before she got to the bottom line, did a fine job of first schooling the media and anyone else listening with respect to the rule of law and how it works. She explained clearly the rights… Read more »

The Occupiers’ Supporters

“Occupying” seems to have become a fulltime occupation for some. Hey, it beats working, right? At least that’s the impression some of the occupiers give. Have you seen the list of organizations and individuals that are supporters of this movement? They include a variety of communist organizations, as well as the official Communist Party. And don’t forget the Nazi Party; they’re on board, too. Throw in the Black Panthers, Louis Farrakhan,B and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and you… Read more »

Race, Sherrod, and Victimhood

No real evidence was presented that racism was a major problem within the movement, but that apparently was beside the point. I commented on this in my July 14 post, if you want to review it….

The Real Victim of Racism

So the NAACP has voted to condemn the Tea Party for its racism? Where did they find that racism? Some will point to the infamous “walk” by Democratic leaders from their House office building to the Capitol when some of them claimed to hear racist remarks from the crowd—remarks that no one else heard, that were never picked up by any microphone or in any video. When you want to believe something, you just will, regardless of the facts. Deroy… Read more »

Perversion of Justice

What does “justice” mean to the Obama administration? The Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holder has now followed through on its threat to sue the state of Arizona over its illegal immigration law. Keep in mind that the Arizona law merely puts some teeth into what is supposed to be federal law. The only reason the Arizona legislature saw fit to pass it is because the federal government isn’t doing its job enforcing the law. Incidentally, it was revealed… Read more »
