Do Black Lives Matter To The Black Lives Matter Movement?

Quoting: Do black lives really matter? Not according to the racists at Black Lives Matter. Ben Shapiro unlocks the truth of the BLM movement and the race-baiting Democrats who support it. answer the question: nope. To the hatemongers of the Black Lives Matter movement, the broader black community is but a pawn in their arsenal to destroy this once great - and hopefully someday, great again! - Republic.

Seared Music: U2 - "Pride (In The Name Of Love)"

....given today's events up in the Bluegrass State, this seems like an appropriate enough song...

Kentucky Clerk Held In Contempt Over Refusal To Issue Marriage Licenses

Judge David Bunning has cited Kim Davis for contempt of court and she is now in custody and being marched off to jail. From the Lexington Herald-Leader: Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis was taken to jail Thursday by U.S. Marshals after a federal judge found her in contempt of court for ignoring his order to issue marriage licenses. U.S. District Judge David Bunning ordered Davis to remain in jail until she agrees to comply with his Aug. 12 order. Davis has refused to give anyone a marriage license since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage June 26, citing her religious objections. A half-dozen local couples are suing her. (Lexington Herald-Ledger via. Joe.My.God.)
According to most reports, Judge Bunning likely felt that financial sanction wouldn't be enough to compel Ms. Davis to do her damn job as county clerk, so maybe a short stay in federal lockup will change her mind; better still was this bit of news from a Lexington-area reporter on the subject... other words, she either starts issuing marriage licenses to all couples (or instructs her staff to do so) or she gets to stay in federal lockup for as long as it takes to do so.

Founder's Quote, 3 September 2015

The citizens of the United States of America have the right to applaud themselves for having given to mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy worthy of imitation. All possess alike liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship. It is now no more that toleration is spoken of as if it were by the indulgence of one class of citizens that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights, for happily the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. - George Washington, letter to the Hebrew Congregation of Newport, Rhode Island — 1790

Seared Music: Johnny Cash - "The Man Comes Around" of Johnny Cash's best songs...period, full stop.

Did Pres. Obama Shank HRC By All-But-Endorsing VP Biden In 2016?

Quoting: President Obama has given Vice President Joe Biden his blessing to run for president in 2016. Is Hillary Clinton's campaign doomed? Find out as John Phillips, Scott Ott and Stephen Kruiser discuss.

Is the Pope Catholic? I'm being sarcastic there, but given how tightly run political parties are run in the U.S. - especially on the Democrat side - there's no way in hell that President Obama didn't, at some point, give his endorsement to Vice President Biden...remember, there is no love lost between Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton going back to 2008 and despite the seeming run of invincibility that HRC had built prior to the current email controversy, you have to imagine that no Democrat would be willing to stick their neck out unless someone from on high - like from the White House - had given their approval for a primary challenge.

All I can think of as I watch this are the words of The Wire's Omar Little...
You come at the king, you best not miss.
If this supposed effort by Obama & Company to shank HRC politically fails....bloodletting ain't even close to what might happen within in the Democrat Party if it goes down that route.

Seared Music: Jethro Tull - "Cross Eyed Mary"

2 thoughts: (1)the song title is an apt description of those who believe their religion gives them the right to browbeat, bully and cudgel others and (2)its' also an apt description for that Kentucky clerk who got bitch-slapped by SCOTUS today over refusing to issue same-sex marriage.

SCOTUS: Kentucky Clerk Must Let Same-Sex Couples Marry

Ms. Davis, either do you damn job or resign!
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday refused to allow a county clerk in Kentucky who objects to same-sex marriage on religious grounds to continue to deny marriage licenses to all couples, gay or straight.
In June, in Obergefell v. Hodges, the Supreme Court established a nationwide constitutional right to same-sex marriage. The new case from Kentucky, Davis v. Miller, was the court’s first opportunity to consider whether government officials may refuse to comply with the Obergefell decision on religious grounds.
The case concerns Kim Davis, an elected clerk in rural Rowan County, Ky. After the state’s governor told county clerks to issue marriage licenses to all eligible couples, a federal court rejected Ms. Davis’s argument that she should be excused from the obligation given her religious beliefs.
Ms. Davis’s lawyers filed an emergency application on Friday with Justice Elena Kagan, the member of the Supreme Court who supervises cases arising from the judicial circuit that includes Kentucky. She referred the matter to the full court. “This is a matter of first impression,” Ms. Davis’s application said, “with far-reaching implications across the country for religious liberty.” (New York Times)

Religious liberty, my ass....when did religious liberty give you, Ms. Davis, the right to trample on the rights of others? You are an elected official (county clerks in Kentucky are elected) don't get to use religious liberty as a cudgel over the LGBT community and the sooner she comes to realize this - or the sooner that judge throws her ass in jail - the better.

Founder's Quote, 31 August 2015

It is a wise rule and should be fundamental in a government disposed to cherish its credit, and at the same time to restrain the use of it within the limits of its faculties, "never to borrow a dollar without laying a tax in the same instant for paying the interest annually, and the principal within a given term; and to consider that tax as pledged to the creditors on the public faith." - Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Wayles Eppes — 1813
