    Next up: Red Flag laws Feeling irrationally angry after an argument with his wife in 2015, the police were called on firearm owner Edward Caniglia to perform a welfare check. He agreed to undergo a psychiatric evaluation at the hospital to determine suicidality on the condition that police not confiscate his guns. Upon returning to his home, however, Caniglia found that the police had unconstitutionally searched his house and seized his firearms. For the first time in 13 years, the Court upheld both privacy and gun rights, this time unanimously. Caniglia v. Strom’s 9-0 decision has the potential to create lasting effects and set precedent as powerful as was DC v. Heller in 2008. Incredibly, after Caniglia sued the officers, the First District court ruled in favor of the police officers and incorrectly claimed the seizure was justified under a “community caretaking exception” to the Fourth Amendment. In essence, the court tried to equate the police stopping to help a disabled vehicle on the side of the road to an illegal search of a private residence.

    The idea was noble but the practical application would be a big government bonanza for the left. So far we have avoided the issue because nobody had the temerity to use it to pull "rights" out of thin air but I predict it won't be long before the left does exactly that. Repeal the 9thA.

    I'm not going to argue with you about abortions in the 1st trimester, neither of us will have our mind changed about that. But the 9thA is worse than useless, it is dangerous. If you start pulling rights out of it the left will turn it into a magic wishing well that grants all their fantasies. I understand the intent behind it but it is dysfunctional and counter productive to the idea of limited government in practice, I'm just surprised the left hasn't used it yet. It needs to be repealed. And "states rights" are important to limited and responsible government controlled by the locals in each state, the states may not actually have the rights but their people have a right to local control of issues not delegated to the federal government.

    The Constitution is the supreme law of the land and all laws contrary to it are null and void. Are courts to ignore that and rule in favor of unconstitutional laws? Or are they to rule according to the Constitution?

    So, you would have the courts rule in favor of unconstitutional laws even though the Constitution is the supreme law of the land and all laws in violation of it are null and void?

    It will be perfectly viable after they start a civil war and lose. The trick will be to keep people from just exterminating all of them.

    This is their last chance to secede. But they will not take it or let us take it, they are devoted to imposing their will on us. When we win we must expel the survivors.

    I agree too. And then the military should be sent to occupy New York. They can be given the option to secede before being occupied or after.

    Large swaths of America have already fallen irreversibly to the red tide of communism. And the rest is right on the edge of the precipice. If history has taught us anything, it’s that once communism takes hold of a nation, it’s not speeches, but the Second Amendment, that will deliver it from tyranny. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t combat Marxism in the realm of ideas. But you can’t defeat an enemy if you don’t know who he is, nor can you win a battle unless you understand the nature of it. And for far too long, conservatives have believed that this fight is a purely intellectual one. Persuasion is part of the struggle. Throughout the country there are millions of people of all ages and backgrounds who have been duped into believing in the utopian promises communism offers. There are the young people who think collectivist policies will free them from joblessness and financial insecurity, or who see LGBT cultural Marxism as a way of finding identity in a society that is empty because it has taken God out of the equation. There are the minorities and immigrant communities who have accepted big government as the only means to economic prosperity, or who have been brainwashed into viewing themselves as victims of white supremacy whom only Democrats in government can rescue.

    It never had to be "Incorporated" beyond being a Constitutional Amendment. A6S2 "Incorporates" the BoR. (With the possible exception of all or part of the 1stA since it specifies "Congress shall make no law" at the beginning)

    The replacement would offer just as much or more than the LP. Everything you say about a replacement 3rd party applies as much or more to the LP. The Texas GOP is the current best chance for anything worth more than a bag of air to happen about secession and a replacement 3rd party would be as much or more pro-secession than the LP.

    Then we secede if necessary. Quit trying to deny the plain truth of the matter and start working to enforce it. Your attitude is why the left always wins and our side has so far only "compromised" away our birthright. If the nation splits we will be better off, if it doesn't then we will enforce our rights as best we can.

    I laid out the logical result of taking a position that the BoR was not binding on the states. If the logic is flawed (as you point out that it is) then the position cannot stand. The feds exist and declare through the BoR that the GOD given rights exist and are binding on the states as the BoR is part of the Constitution, it is the duty of the feds to enforce those rights. It is the duty of ALL authorities to enforce those GOD given rights, a duty GOD places upon them. To declare that the rights are not applicable to the states is to declare that they do not come from GOD and he does not place a duty on the states and feds to enforce them.

    On Thursday the education secretary announced that about 264,000 student loan borrowers will be given about $7.5 billion in debt relief under a settlement of claims. The settlement was made in a class action lawsuit in which lead plaintiff Theresa Sweet sued Betsy DeVos, the Trump-era Education Secretary, for routinely ignoring Obama-era regulations and denying relief claims. Some say this will allow an avenue forward for students saddled with college debts due to predatory loan practices. Eileen Connor, director of the Project on Predatory Student Lending, issued a statement saying, “This momentous proposed settlement will deliver answers and certainty to borrowers who have fought long and hard for a fair resolution of their borrower defense claims after being cheated by their schools and ignored or even rejected by their government. It will not only help secure billions of dollars in debt cancellation for defrauded students, but charts a borrower defense process that is fair, just, and efficient for future borrowers.” The proposed settlement will still require court-approval in a July 28th hearing.

    The BoR RECOGNIZES rights from GOD. To allow the states to ignore them is to deny they are GOD given. You can go kick rocks. You are siding with tyrants at the state level to satisfy some bizarre dogma about states rights that is expressly UNconstitutional since the Constitution states it is the supreme law of the land and binding on the states. The states must obey the BoR or leave the union and if they don't they must be made to choose one or the other.

    If the BoR doesn't apply to the states then the rights are not GOD given and liberty doesn't exist. The states agreed to the BoR as part of the union and they can secede if they don't like it.
