Skating on Thin Jurisprudential Ice


Friends, the Left's assault on Justices Kavanaugh and Barrett, during their confirmation processes, was just a warmup act.  Much worse is to come.  If you pay close attention to the left-wing press, you'll see there are more and more articles about the illegitimacy of the Supreme Court, with its rightward tilt, and these articles propose radical solutions to this "problem", like court-packing, and term limits for justices.  Assuming the high court overturns Roe v. Wade and/or rules against race preferences, this low murmur of criticism will become a strident roar.  It's not clear what the Left will do about its contempt for the judiciary, but time will tell.


Inflation continues to plague the economy, which for now is expanding at a healthy rate.  More and more business leaders, however, see a recession on the horizon.  You should start to ask yourself: am I recession-proof?  What will become of my assets in the case of a major market correction?  Can I ride a downturn out, or should I start to reconfigure my portfolio now, before it's too late? 

The red part of Maryland is aching to join West Virginia.  Heck,Yours Truly is aching to join West Virginia!  In the real world, though, there are major hurdles to the redrawing of state lines.  Overcoming these hurdles, on the other hand, could be a path to a permanent GOP majority in the Senate...


Apparently many COVID survivors are reporting persistent "brain fog".  Could this explain Biden's "win" in 2020?  Hmmm. 

Finally, here's a state-level analysis and denunciation of Facebook's interference in the 2020 election, which was, as it turns out, far more extensive and effective than anything that Russia did in 2016 (or ever).  We desperately need a Republican Governor and Attorney General in the Keystone State, so we can begin to get a handle on this problem.


  1. Nick,

    After reading another one of your depressing, but well written news posts, I'm getting a case of OPTICAL RECTUMITIS. This is were the optic nerve somehow gets connected to the rectal nerve, and you get a shitty outlook on life. Do I need to get a copy of Hal Lindsey's "The Late Great Planet Earth"? Do I need the complete "Left Behind" series.

    Nick, you need to run for Congress! Go to Washington.

  2. Ray, our country is in deep doo-doo, but I don't have to tell you that. No reason why we have to get all mopey, though. Nero set us a good example. Tune up your fiddle, Raymondo!

    Me, go to Washington? You're very kind. It's crossed my mind, but there are veritable rivers of sh*t I would have to wade through first... I'm not sure I have it in me.

    1. Nothing like deliberately and systematically destroying a country, and then "rebuilding" it in accordance with Neo-Marxist "standards" is there? Something about "build back better"? Even Karl Marx would be amazed!

  3. Dr. Waddy from Jack: I am not sure of the Constitutional process thereof but your suggestion of real possibilities for realignment of state borders, implies that a dominant GOP majority in the Senate could enable it! There hasbeen an increase in creditable speculation about the impossibility between common sense America and the radical left, prompted of course, by the radical left's relentless assault on American values and the institutions which embody them.Within the borders of benighted states like NY, CA, MD etc. we already see undeniable proof of the determination of leftist captured government to force their views on the real Americans trapped in their fiefs. Perhaps the only remedy is to leave, enmasse, form our own states or join existing ones which welcome us and leave those states hopelessly compromised to stew in their own incipiently totalitarian juices. Could we in the God's country of rural upstate NY actually enjoy state government by people who share our values?.Perhaps there is hope.

  4. ". . . impossibility of reconciliation . .

  5. Oy. "Build Back Better". I guess, if one assumes that more government spending inevitably leads to a better life for all, then sure -- we're on the express train to betterment! Yay!

    Jack, the Constitution specifically forbids the subdivision of states without the consent of all state legislatures concerned:

    Article IV, Section 3, Clause 1:

    New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress

    Now, this obstacle could be overcome in two ways: by bribing or coercing the affected legislatures to consent to the partition of their own territory, OR by recognizing a (compliant) breakaway legislature as the legitimate legislature of the affected state(s), as was done in the case of West Virginia. I hasten to add that there's always a third possibility: shoot everyone who objects. So, as you can see, we're not without options!

  6. Dr.Waddy from Jack: Without the courts the left is in a rare old pickle isn't it?.The recent refusal by Scotus to interfere with Texas's affirmation of unborn babies' right to live must be causing them no end of apprehension and dread. The left has hitched its wagon to an inhuman cause; dusk approaches and the chickens are coming home to roost before long! What then? If Scotus schools the left in the superiority of the rule of our law over leftist fiat, the left will have a fine old time laying waste for awhile, yes but after?Let'see: AOC would be in her 50s when the first now unborn feti to be saved by this triumph of the American conscience reach voting age. What would she say to them? "Well I would have had you aborted but here you are I guess. Say, can you spare me a sawbuck?" .

  7. Dr.Waddy from Jack: In your next post you say the Dems are confident in our electoral infrastructure. Perhaps finagled elections will be their governmental fortress, since the courts are no longer their rubber stamp! It may be all they have, save of course those extragovernmental institutions they have cuckooed. But their frantic quest for governmental sway confirms that they consider that yet vital.I'd guess they are confident in THEIR electoral infrastructure and are counting on it for a followup anything goes knockout of insolent Trumpism.But wow! 2022 could be a superbad year for them, with Roe v Wade on thin ice and an electoral disaster a definite possibility. They are reckless enough when they think they are ahead but when they get desperate, their gyrations make a fine show! (eg McGovern, Mondale, Hillary).Should they fluff in 2022, their preps for 2024 could make high comedy! Watch, AOC is already trying out little episodes of Presidential gravity! Eg. Her recent solemn mien as accompanying Sheik Omar spewed about police responsibility for high crime rates. " Oh DO be sensible Ilhan!.Be patient; 'our' time is coming!"

  8. Jack, I think you may be mistaken about how the Dems' truly feel about the Texas abortion law. Yeah, theoretically they enjoy extirpating fetuses and consider it a hallmark of an enlightened age, BUT they also like winning elections, and they seem genuinely to believe that outrage over the repeal, or effective repeal, of Roe v. Wade could be to their political advantage. And maybe it could, although you and I have our doubts. Remember, what the Dems need, above all else, in 2022 is to change the subject from their own abysmal failures. If it takes a "right-wing" SCOTUS to do that, I doubt they'll mind.

    Yes, assuming the Dems got a shellacking in 2022, it's anyone's guess how they'd react. A lurch to the left? A tack to the center? Both at once? Let's hope we get to find out.

  9. Dr. Waddy from Jack: I trust there are many in the so termed Pro Choice movement who are rational people of good will who are appalled by the physical reality of the act of abortion. They have made a painfully principled decision to support the extensive provision of the procedure despite its since 1973 effect of having killed tens of millions of unborn humans. The salient issue is:either the rights of the living or the rights of the unborn living will prevail and for the unborn, its life or death. Many good people fought for the slavery condemned cause of the Confederacy in which slaves had no voice. Unborn babies have no voice and many people who sincerely support what post 1973 experience proves is a continuing fetal holocaust have made a similarly tragic, profoundly wrong choice. Now those who sniff" why these prolifers need to get over their love affair with the fetus " who march in gleeful celebration of a "right" to commit this horrid act, who execrate those who stand for unborn humans: they deserve our most dedicated opposition and the disparagment due the willfully sociopathic.

  10. Dr. Waddy from Jack: Can the destruction of a "right to abortion" garner enough electoral opposition to spare the Dems ignominious rejection in 2022? When has America ever had a clearer ELECTORAL opportunity to show what it really believes on this issue than that to be presented in 2022 and 2024, should Roe v Wade join the Dredd Scott decision? Heretofore the Dems have relied on compliant federal courts to enable this abomination. The Dems and their masters, the radical left, have made abortion their flagship issue. Their ship already risks foundering over their presumptuous overeach since 2020. LET it SINK now along with their inhuman devotion to the most proven ghastly principle in our history.Let civilization and humanity prevail!

  11. Jack, your vehemance is impressive! It's also a testament to the passion that many Americans bring to this issue -- tens of millions on both sides of it, I'd wager. On the other hand, there are probably 250 million+ who are ambivalent, at best, on abortion, which tells me that no one election will ever be a referendum on Roe v. Wade. Even for the Dems, it's just one tool of many in their tool kit. I think you're right, though, that victory may be nigh for the forgotten fetus. This is one of few cultural issues on which public opinion HASN'T moved inexorably in a leftward direction. There is, as you suggest, a reason for that. The fetus has biological substance to it. Every mother who's carried one knows it has moral weight to it as well. That has to count for something!
