American Elephants


The Constitution is Under Attack by The Elephant's Child

Bet you didn’t know that today is Constitution Day, the national observance holiday that most Americans never heard of. Investors Business Daily called my attention to the Date. They say “this year, 2018, it may well be our most important holiday. For the Constitution is threatened more now than at any time since seven southern states seceded from Union and Civil War broke out on April 12, 1861.”

Scott Powell of the Discovery Institute explains the present peril, and it’s important to understand how and why he declares this to be so. The article from Investors is here, not long, and worth your time.

Richard Epstein of the Hoover Institution contributed to the Politico symposium this morning about the Kavanaugh matter: “The Democratic resistance to the Kavanaugh nomination has been an all-out assault on his judicial philosophy and personal integrity from the moment that it was announced. And here is the Wall Street Journal’s take on the #Me Too Kavanaugh Ambush. And here is Victor Davis Hanson on “The New Refuge of Scoundrels” in which he takes on the anonymous op-eds, the Kavanaugh accusations and the other anonymous accusations said to be justified because of the sheer awfulness of the Trump administration because “ripped from their mother’s arms” and other excrescences of the Left in its agonies.

Well, of course Constitution Day is the perfect time for Hillary to come forth with a demand that we abolish the Electoral College because Donald Trump is destroying America. Poor Hillary, she was just so entitled, and she cannot get over her loss. This was in a long article in The Atlantic, derived from her book “What Happened” (sales of her book may not be going well) in which she explains just how perfectly dreadful, awful, horrible the Trump administration is with every false trope the Democrats have come up with. There the s#!#-hole comment about some African countries (who deserve the appellation) which proves that Trump is racist (Nobody ever called Trump a racist until he ran for the presidency). The 3,000 deaths from Hurricane Maria, ‘ripped from the arms’, every trope the Democrats have devised.

What it clearly demonstrates is that the Democrats have no respect for or understanding of the Constitution. The Electoral College protects the votes of all Americans from the over-populous coastal states to see that all votes count. Feminists are demanding a new Amendment to the Constitution to make sure that females are entitled to every benefit that males get, excluding unimportant stuff like the draft and combat, I guess.

In the meantime, former Democratic presidential candidate, Secretary of State and Senator John Kerry has been off to Iran to tell their government how to deal with the Trump administration’s attempt to nullify the Obama administration’s  Iran Deal. He is apparently unaware that he is no longer the Secretary of State and doesn’t get to do American foreign policy. He should be prosecuted. He has admitted that he met “three or four times” with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif since Kerry left office. He admits talking about Trump’s decision to exit the foolish Iran nuclear deal that Kerry helped craft. This is a plain violation of the Logan Act, that forbids private American citizens from conducting foreign policy with out official authorization.

So give a little thought to the U.S. Constitution today. Signed in Convention on Monday September 17, 1787.

The Cato Institute has long published pocket-sized bound copies of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution 3½” x 5″. Good for you and for your kids.  Kamala Harris sneered at Brett Kavanaugh about “that little book you carry in your pocket” which was probably one of these.  Cato, I believe still has group prices for more than one copy, inexpensive.
