Merrick Garland for the U.S. Supreme Court

March 17, 2016

  President Barack Obama has made his selection for nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. Appellate court Judge Merrick Garland from the District of Columbia is his choice. Of course, the Senate Republicans have vowed to block any Obama nominee. This is purely politics. Historically, those who have been appointed to the Supreme Court do not […]

Freedom of Speech to be Denied by Attorney General Loretta Lynch

March 14, 2016

Well, here it comes: criminal prosecution for denying there is “climate change” all because this will be the next great tax to match Obamacare.

Trump v Apple

February 24, 2016
