We are coming up on a busy and potentially momentous week. Congress is returning to Washington, which is always a dangerous proposition. As the famous quote goes, “No man’s life, liberty or property is safe when Congress is in session.” While Congress is in session, it at best does nothing helpful and at worst is destructive to America, this week we will see one of the worst proposals America has ever been faced with. For several reasons, this issue will be at the forefront this week. What is the issue and why will it be so visible this week? The issue is amnesty. There are several reasons why it will be in the forefront this week. First, you will see Barack Obama pushing the issue. He will be talking about amnesty, gun control gay rights and anything else he can think of to avoid talking about the most important issue of all. The most important issue of all is the economy. Friday’s jobs report was a disaster. While the cooked numbers for unemployment are falling, the numbers behind Obama’s faux unemployment rate are shocking. 90 million Americans have left the workforce. Out of a nation of about 310 million, 90 million adults are not in the work force. Our work force is now the same size it was in 1979. If those who have given up looking for work were included in the unemployment calculations, the rate would be near 12%. So Obama will talk about amnesty this week. He will have a lot of help from the so-called “Gang of 8” as well as Washington Republican insiders who are pushing amnesty. Amnesty is being pushed this week so its supporters can try to ram it through Congress without any examination. This will be another case of a 1000 page bill that Congressmen and Senators will vote on without knowing what is in the bill. But here is what the amnesty advocates won’t tell you. They will trot out the children of the illegals many of whom were brought to this country as small children and many who only know America. However most of the illegals are adults. Most of them are not well-educated adults. Compulsory education in Mexico only runs through the 6th grade. Can you imagine trying to navigate our complex society with only a 6th grade education? Then throw in the fact it is not even an American education. In 1986, we had amnesty. The figure that is thrown out for this amnesty is 11 million. What we learned from 1986 is that they number of people who will apply for amnesty is far larger than what Congress expects. Even now with just the discussion of amnesty border crossings have increased significantly. We also learned from 1986, border security will never happen. But the real danger to America is the cost amnesty will have. Our nation teeters on the edge of bankruptcy thanks to liberal spending policies and amnesty will be like throwing gasoline on a fire. In economic terms, the value illegals have to the economy is that they can be paid a lower wage than is legal. Because of their status, illegals can’t really complain about this and employers can take advantage of them. Once they become legal, they will be able to demand minimum wage, benefits and the other perks of employment. In economic terms, they are no longer worth the cost. What does that mean? That means large numbers of them will end up on welfare. Even now, though it is illegal, significant numbers of illegal aliens receive welfare. This number will explode after amnesty. We will see the number of people in this nation who are not in the workforce expand from 90 million to well over 100 million or perhaps even higher. 10 to 20 million recipients of amnesty will flood the rolls of Obamacare, driving the cost of that program to the point of where it bankrupts the nation. The week that is coming is going to focus not on the economy but on amnesty. We must tell our Senators and Congressmen in no uncertain terms amnesty must be voted down. And while we are at it we must remind them, “It’s the economy, stupid!”

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
