Marco Rubio joins with Democrats to push bill for college rape kangaroo courts, depriving the accused of due process

In Liberty, Society by Poor RichardLeave a Comment

I honestly don’t understand Marco Rubio. There are flashes of brilliance from him, especially when he articulates the principles of Conservatism. However, I’m afraid Rubio’s Conservatism isn’t anchored in unwavering faithfulness to the Constitution or individual liberties because sometimes he goes completely off the rails. This is one of those times. Marco Rubio has joined with Democrats, co-sponsoring a bill that would legitimize kangaroo courts on college campuses for rape victims, stacking all the odds in the favor of the accuser and giving the accused very little due process.

Obama gun control executive order compromises doctor-patient confidentiality for “mental health” issues

In 2nd Amendment by Poor RichardLeave a Comment

Once again, President Obama is circumventing Congress and the Constitution by issuing decrees and implementing them as if they are law. This time, he’s going after a fundamental civil right protected by the Constitution: our right to keep and bear arms. Much of the media focus on Obama’s executive orders thus far has been on the background checks provisions that would require private sellers of even a single firearm to register with the Federal Government as a “firearms dealer” and conduct a background check on the buyer (even if that buyer is a family member). However, Obama is also prepping an executive order that essentially crushes doctor-patient confidentiality for mental health patients.

Governor Cuomo signs order forcing everyone to come inside when it’s cold

In Politics by Mr. RightLeave a Comment

In the interest of full disclosure, what he’s ostensibly trying to do is get homeless people off the streets when it’s freezing outside. I get it. But coercing people to go inside when it’s cold is not only stupid, but it’s unconstitutional. From CSM: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order Sunday requiring homeless people throughout the state to …

MSNBC’s most ridiculous moments in 2015

In Media Bias by Mr. RightLeave a Comment

Washington Free Beacon has compiled a montage of MSNBC’s most ridiculous moments from 2015 and it’s pretty great. Honestly, I’m glad it wasn’t my responsibility to sift through countless hours of MSNBC drivel and subjectively determine the most outlandish, ridiculous, and in some cases, perhaps literally insane nonsense uttered on the flailing network, but I’m thankful that someone did it. Anyhow, without further …
