Justice Kennedy Calls Out Sotomayor for Breaking Very Basic Rule All Judges Know

The Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments in NIFLA v. Becerra, a case out of California centered around abortion that has big ramifications regarding the issue of free speech versus state-compelled speech, according to Fox News.

At issue is a 2015 statute passed by the state of California which requires all pregnancy-related facilities to conspicuously post a disclosure informing women of the state-provided “free or low-cost access” to various forms of prenatal care, such as abortion. The law also requires unlicensed, non-medical facilities to prominently inform their clients that they are not licensed medical providers.

However, the law was written with so many carveouts and exemptions that it ended up solely targeting a number of explicitly pro-life, nonprofit “crisis pregnancy centers,” which counsel women on options other than abortion, such as adoption. However, the law compelled these centers to inform the women of their abortion options.

David French of National Review noted that during arguments in front of the Court, Justice Sonia Sotomayor seemed to step outside the traditional norms of evidence submitted in the case and earned a rebuke for it from her colleague, Justice Anthony Kennedy.

In questioning the attorney representing the plaintiffs — Mike Farris of the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates — Sotomayor referenced information she had obtained herself from the website of one of the unlicensed pro-life pregnancy centers, and asked several questions in regard to licensed versus unlicensed facilities providing what amounts to medical advice.

According to a transcript of the arguments (page 22), Sotomayor was followed by Kennedy, who began his line of questioning with a not-so-subtle criticism of Sotomayor for side-stepping the normal bounds of Court procedure.

Kennedy stated, “Well, in this case I didn’t go beyond the record to look on the internet because I don’t think we should do that, but I do have a hypothetical.”

French, who has a legal background, pointed out that court cases are fought over evidence that has been submitted ahead of time and placed into the record in such a manner that both sides have an equal opportunity to examine the same set of facts.

This is done so that unverified or misleading claims don’t end up deciding the outcome of a case.

“Simply put, judges should not act as free-lance investigators in the cases before them. In fact, this is judging 101,” French wrote.

Sotomayor nevertheless took it upon herself to do some “free-lance investigating,” thus going above and beyond the set of facts already put forward through arguments and evidence in lower courts by questioning an attorney with whom she no doubt disagreed ideologically.

Of course, The Associated Press was quick to rush to Sotomayor’s defense after she was rebuked by Kennedy.

The AP noted that there have been a handful of previous instances in other cases where justices or their clerks will have looked something up online to better inform their line of questioning, and even cited examples where Kennedy and Roberts had done so, as well as Breyer, Justice Sam Alito and the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

Yet, given the thousands of cases heard over the years by the Supreme Court that have strictly kept to the presented record, a mere five examples of a justice going outside the record in their questions or written opinions doesn’t give Sotomayor any excuse.

Kennedy was right to call out Sotomayor for stepping outside the record, and his rebuke should serve as a reminder going forward to all current and future justices.

They need to stick to the arguments and evidence before them, not whatever information they can pull up with a quick internet search.

Obama Humiliated In Front Of The World As Jeff Foxworthy Calls Him Out, Internet Goes Wild!

Image result for Obama Humiliated In Front Of The World As Jeff Foxworthy Calls Him Out, Internet Goes Wild!

It’s no wonder that Conservatives love Jeff Foxworthy. He never falters in speaking his mind and sharing his patriotic and conservative views. It’s like he somehow knows the way that millions of Americans feel and explains it in a way that will scare any Liberal and have them running for the hills.

This time he really outdid himself. He was asked to talk about his personal feelings on former President Barack Obama, and he didn’t cut corners in explaining himself.

Foxworthy has made a good name for himself over the years as a comedian as well as the host of “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” He was also a member of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour in which he showed America that he wasn’t scared of embracing his conservative viewpoint.

When he was recently asked to tell us what he thinks of Barack Obama he didn’t hold back from letting Obama really have it, and he singlehandedly destroyed Obama’s “legacy.

Foxworthy posted the following statement to his Facebook page for everyone to see:

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman who is confined to a wheelchair or a three-year-old girl can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

I, FOR ONE, COULDN’T AGREE WITH JEFF FOXWORTHY MORE. WHY IS IT THAT LIBS CAN GET AWAY WITH VOTING FRAUD, BUT WHEN THEY SUSPECT THAT REPUBLICANS ARE DOING IT A FABRICATED DOSSIER COMES OUT? WHY IS IT THAT MUSLIMS ARE GIVEN AN AUTOMATIC OUT BY THE LEFT?

The Left is too afraid of being “politically correct” for their own good. It’s time that we really take some time to think about the things that Jeff Foxworthy is saying.

He understands that our country was founded by a group of men who truly wanted to see us succeed, but those involved with government these days care more about power and money than the people who live here.

I wonder what Barack Obama would have to say in regards to Jeff’s comments…

Some people wonder if this words are real from Jeff or not … well, I don’t really care so much cause they are true!

Nikki Haley Sets Internet On Fire, Reveals Cruel Thing Obama Did That Will Shame Him Forever

Nikki Haley just embarrassed Barack Obama for the cruel thing he did to the Cuban people.

Look, annoying the Cuban population in South Florida spelled doom for the Dems and Hillary so he probably thought he was doing the right thing.
It is just that, as with most things Obama, it backfired. What is it that they say about the road to hell being paved with good intentions?
That will be the liberal’s epitaph – just another cliché proven correct.

Nikki Haley took the extraordinary step of apologizing to a whole nation for Obama’s shoddy treatment.
According to the Washington Examiner Haley, speaking of the cowardly abstention on a critical UN vote that would have helped the Cuban people said:
“When the United States abstained on this resolution last year, its decision was explained by saying, ‘We recognize that the future of the island lies in the hands of the Cuban people. There is a casual cruelty to that remark for which I am profoundly sorry. Regrettably, as of today, the future of Cuba is not in your hands. It remains in the hands of your dictators.”

Correct. It was another missed opportunity for Obama. Another cruel blow to a desperate people.
One that will have lasting consequences for a people who just want to be free.

Marco Rubio echoed Nikki’s comments saying,
“Despite the Obama administration’s unilateral concessions to the Castro regime, I remain hopeful that the Trump administration’s new policy toward Cuba will empower the Cuban people, and bring them closer to freedom and democracy. Ambassador Haley’s vote today is one more step in that direction.”

Trump Sets Internet On Fire With Blistering Response To Disgraceful Bergdahl Decision

President Trump is off to Asia but not before letting America know we elected the right man for the job. He issued a blistering response to the shameful Bowe Bergdahl verdict that most Americans, even most liberals, agree with.

Because the decision was a disgrace. In case you missed it, Bowe Bergdahl is not going to prison.

Making Obama’s terrible deal even worse. He deserted, soldiers got injured, Obama rescued him and now he will not serve any time in prison.

He was looking at 14 hard years. And he deserved them.

Instead, according to the Daily Mail, in a ruling that stunned the legal community, Bergdahl will get a slap on the wrist.

Bergdahl was demoted down to private. Will be dishonorably discharged. And has been ordered to pay $1,000 from per month for the next 10 months.

This is an outrage.

Consider that several soldiers received serious life threatening wounds when they went out to search for him and it turns this into a farce.

He didn’t care about them but they did for him. Loyalty versus treason. I guess we go with treason now?

Bowe claimed he did not commit treason and gave some ridiculous story about wanting to report an unfit commander.

His defense lawyers argued that he suffered enough after spending five years of captivity with Taliban groups.

Trump disagreed and spoke for all Americans when he ripped the decision in a blistering tweet.

Share if you agree with President Trump.

Football Refs See Players Take Knee During Anthem, Set Internet On Fire With Protest Of Their Own

The NFL anthem protests have been spreading across the country and it is getting out of hand.

We had one baseball player try it and we had NBA players talk about it until they were shut down by NBA commissioner Adam Silver.

But the NFL keeps setting a bad example for the young people in America and in New Jersey this weekend things came to head.

After players from Monroe High School knelt during the national anthem, two game referees had had enough.

And decided to teach these young morons the proper way to mount a protest and teach them some manners.

They saw the players take a knee and as soon as the anthem was done, which they stood for, they walked off the field and promptly went viral.

Good job.

According to IJR, the two referees were Ernie Lunardelli and his son Anthony Lunardelli.

I’m not in favor of anyone disrespecting our country, our flag, the armed forces,” Ernie Lunardelli told NJ Advance Media, “What they’re protesting has nothing to do with the national anthem and I’m against it, so I decided to protest for them kneeling and that’s what I did. Whoever is disrespecting that flag and the national anthem, that’s who I have a problem with,” Lunardelli said.

Then he got real and hopefully America is listening, because this is important.

‘I don’t care if it’s a baby, if it’s an 80-year-old man, anybody. I don’t care. Any race, color, I don’t care who it is. It’s not the way I was brought up and it pisses me off that people are doing that. What hurts the most is these kids don’t even know why they’re kneeling. I just don’t understand why this is happening, especially at the high school level. If you’re not happy with being in America, go somewhere else. It’s that simple.”

Star Parker Sets Internet On Fire, Says The One Thing That Will Shame Al Sharpton Forever

Star Parker is a former Democrat. She was brainwashed by the left and as she says she “believed all the lies of the left.”

That was then. This is now.

She switched sides and became a conservative and is now blowing the lid of the real scam the left has perpetrated against disadvantaged groups for years.

Parker hold nothing back and absolutely exposes Al Sharpton and the rest for the frauds they really are.

Parker sat down for an interview with The Daily Caller and the left will never be the same.

She said the “perception of racism has become big business” for America’s liberal black leaders.

Who, and this is devastating and true, she claims “shake down corporations for billions of dollar” and really only divide America by skin color rather than do what Dr. Martin Luther King said and bring people together so skin color is a thing of the past.

She’s right. They get rich, America gets more divided and it is a scam.

She listed some lies she was told when she was on the left including: “the poor are poor because the wealthy are wealthy… that my problems were somebody else’s fault…. and that America was racist.”

These lies she believed led her to hopelessness and despair that led to drugs, crime, risky sexual activity, and a dependence on welfare.

And she is 100% correct. The left does not want to help – or maybe they did at one point but their programs backfired in such a way they now depend on these lies to keep them in power.

She found God and conservatism and has turned her life into the American dream realized.

Which is what happens when you break free of the lies the left uses to subdue a population and cling to power.

Mike Pence Sets Internet On Fire, Exposes One Thing That Will Stain Obama’s Legacy Forever

Vice President Mike Pence delivered a stinging rebuke of the corrupt UN bureaucrats and President Obama who enabled them.

And then he shamed Obama and left another stain on his failed legacy by announcing a massive new shift in the way the United States will hand out aid we give to the rest of the world, especially to persecuted Christians.

We are by far the most generous nation in the history of the world. And for too long have we let corrupt bureaucrats handle our aid packages.

So Trump decided to do something about it.

According to Breitbart, Mike Pence just announced to Christian leaders a massive change from Obama’s failures, and left a big black mark on his legacy.

He said that President Trump has mandated that the U.S. State Department stop relying on the United Nations to provide humanitarian aid to persecuted religious minorities in the Middle East fighting against the onslaught of radical Islam.

Pence ripped the UN saying, “We will no longer rely on the United Nations alone to assist persecuted Christians and minorities in the wake of genocide and the atrocities of terrorist groups. Our fellow Christians and all who are persecuted in the Middle East should not have to rely on multinational institutions when America can help them directly.”

Then he fired the shot heard round the Christian world,

“And from this day forward, America will provide support directly to persecuted communities through USAID. The United States will work hand-in-hand from this day forward with faith-based groups and private organizations to help those who are persecuted for their faith.”

Then he shamed Obama in the worst way,

“This is the moment,” Pence said, “now is the time, and America will support these people in their hour of need. Let me assure you tonight, President Trump and I see these crimes for what they are — vile acts of persecution animated by hatred for Christians and the Gospel of Christ…And so too does this President know who and what has perpetrated these crimes, and he calls them by name — radical Islamic terrorists.”
