    A federal judge has set a hearing for tomorrow on the potential unsealing of the affidavit used to obtain a search warrant ahead of the FBI raid on President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home. Biden's Department of Justice is desperate to stop the unsealing, supposedly due to an "ongoing criminal investigation" that could be compromised by its unsealing. Is that really the reason? Jordan and the rest of the Sekulow team discuss the latest developments on the unprecedented raid on President Trump's home. This and more today on Sekulow.

    The FBI claims to have used "filter" agents in the raid of President Trump's Mar-a-Lago home. But these "filter" agents apparently missed the fact that President Trump's passports were wrongfully seized. Passports were clearly outside the scope of the warrant, so what else was essentially stolen from President Trump's home?

    Written by Lynn Bowman Tabb “Information is power” and the Medical Freedom vs. Medical Tyranny Forum hosted by Illinois Family Institute was clearly an evening of empowerment! Attended by an estimated 500 people–young and old alike–the audience, rapt with attention, benefitted from the insights of Dr. Simone Gold*, MD,FD, founder of America's Frontline Doctors (AFLDS). In her presentation on May 17, 2022, Dr. Gold provided energy-packed insight around this idea penned by Thomas Jefferson to Charles Yancey, ironically on January 6, 1816: “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” In this week's podcast you will hear Dr. Gold exhort the crowd how the battles ahead will most effectively be fought and won as we as individuals increase our understanding and effectively use our limited time and resources. One of the points that needs to be won is to get judges to rule in favor of the Constitutional right to body autonomy. Thanks to the efforts of AFLDS, this was accomplished in part through the victory of keeping vaccine mandates from becoming law. Dr. Gold went on to assure the audience there IS a way forward. That way is for each individual to stop looking for a politician to come in and rescue us. Please listen to this excerpt and share it on your social media platforms and with your likeminded friends: https://illinoisfamilyaction.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/Goldpodcastifi_mixdown.mp3 Dr. Gold's final charge: “I call you to action. I call you to truth. I call you to joy and the love of life, liberty, God, and Country. This is a revolution of love as much as a revolution of science. The facts are on our side. We just need you to stand up and fight for what is right.” *Obama-appointed U.S. District Judge, Christopher Cooper, sentenced Dr. Gold to a 60-day prison term followed by 12 months of supervised release, and ordered her to pay a $9,500 fine, for her participation in the events of January 6, 2021 at the U.S. Capitol.

    We're back for PART TWO after a successful spring 2022 US Supreme Court term, joined again by the (pro-bono) president of the 140-year old historic California Rifle and Pistol Association (he does not take a salary for the position), Chuck Michel. In this episode, Chuck breaks down the impact of the recent Right to Bear Arms (RTBA) case at the US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) handed down on Thurs 23 June 2022, NY Rifle & Pistol Assn v. Bruen (https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/21pdf/20-843_7j80.pdf) and what California DOJ actually did after this ruling. They released private information on every law-abiding gun owner in California, including CCW holders who have proved a need for good cause, to world-wide criminals and terrorists -- anyone with an internet connection. There is a Blue Resistance to the ruling with this goal: to criminalize innocent conduct, making it harder for people to effectively defend themselves lawfully. The flawed assumption remains: The police are your bodyguards with a duty to protect you. It's not common knowledge, but that's false . (This is easy to verify with a little sweat equity). Chuck is the LA County-based Civil Rights attorney who prevailed at the 9th Circuit in the initial 3 judge panel which issued an opinion of the Court that is FAMOUS in California for being powerfully argued & beautifully written by Judge O'SCANNLAIN in Peruta v. County of San Diego in 2014 (a Right to Bear Arms case, conceal carry). That opinion was predictably reversed en banc only by ignoring the merits of the 3 judge panel opinion of the Court. SCOTUS in Bruen now changes everything for that en banc reversal. Recall, Chuck is nationally famous as the California "Freedom Week" attorney, which, if you don't remember, within the span of a few days in 2019, brought 1,000,000 standard capacity magazines into California. The District Court issued a wonderfully persuasive, masterfully argued Finding of Fact and Opinion of the Court Duncan v. Becerra (366 F. Supp. 3d 1131 - Dist. Court, SD California 2019). At issue there was the unConstitutionality of California's arbitrary and capricious 10-round magazine limitation.

    Everything in law and politics, including individual rights, comes back to divisions of power and the evergreen question: Who decides? Who wins the disputes of the day often turns on who decides them. And our acceptance of the resolution of those disputes often turns on who the decision maker is-because it reveals who governs us. In Who Decides?: States As Laboratories of Constitutional Experimentation (Oxford UP, 2021), the influential US Appellate Court Judge Jeffrey S. Sutton focuses on the constitutional structure of the American states to answer the question of who should decide the key questions of public policy today. By concentrating on the role of governmental structure in shaping power across the 50 American states, Sutton develops a powerful explanation of American constitutional law, in all of its variety, as opposed to just federal constitutional law. As in his earlier book, 51 Imperfect Solutions, which looked at how American federalism allowed the states to serve as laboratories of innovation for protecting individual liberty and property rights, Sutton compares state-level governments with the federal government and draws numerous insights from the comparisons. Instead of focusing on individual rights, however, he focuses on structure, while continuing to develop some of the core themes of his previous book. An illuminating and essential sequel to his earlier work on the nature of American federalism, Who Decides makes the case that American Constitutional Law should account for the role of the state courts and state constitutions, together with the federal courts and the federal constitution, in assessing the right balance of power among all branches of government. Taken together, both books reveal a remarkably complex, nuanced, ever-changing federalist system, one that ought to make lawyers and litigants pause before reflexively assuming that the United States Supreme Court alone has the answers to our vexing constitutional questions. William Domnarski is a longtime lawyer who before and during has been a literary guy, with a Ph.D. in English. He's written five books on judges, lawyers, and courts, two with Oxford, one with Illinois, one with Michigan, and one with the American Bar Association. Learn more about your ad choices.

    There are a record number of abortion measures on the ballot for the November midterm elections. Voters in Vermont, California, Kentucky and Montana will decide on respective abortion measures in their states. A proposed Constitutional amendment in Kentucky would amend the state constitution to explicitly ban the right to abortion. Proposals in Vermont, California, and likely in Michigan, would have the opposite effect, enshrining abortion rights in their state constitutions. And a ballot measure in Montana would establish personhood for infants born alive after attempted abortions. We speak with Vox politics reporter, Nicole Narea, for more on the various measures.

In Who Decides?: States As Laboratories of Constitutional Experimentation (Oxford UP, 2021), the influential US Appellate Court Judge Jeffrey S. Sutton focuses on the constitutional structure of the American states to answer the question of who should decide the key questions of public policy today. By concentrating on the role of governmental structure in shaping power across the 50 American states, Sutton develops a powerful explanation of American constitutional law, in all of its variety, as opposed to just federal constitutional law. As in his earlier book, 51 Imperfect Solutions, which looked at how American federalism allowed the states to serve as laboratories of innovation for protecting individual liberty and property rights, Sutton compares state-level governments with the federal government and draws numerous insights from the comparisons. Instead of focusing on individual rights, however, he focuses on structure, while continuing to develop some of the core themes of his previous book. An illuminating and essential sequel to his earlier work on the nature of American federalism, Who Decides makes the case that American Constitutional Law should account for the role of the state courts and state constitutions, together with the federal courts and the federal constitution, in assessing the right balance of power among all branches of government. Taken together, both books reveal a remarkably complex, nuanced, ever-changing federalist system, one that ought to make lawyers and litigants pause before reflexively assuming that the United States Supreme Court alone has the answers to our vexing constitutional questions. William Domnarski is a longtime lawyer who before and during has been a literary guy, with a Ph.D. in English. He's written five books on judges, lawyers, and courts, two with Oxford, one with Illinois, one with Michigan, and one with the American Bar Association. Learn more about your ad choices.

    285: Dobbs' Recognition of Constitutional State Authority to Protect Life

    Life Matters

    Play Episode Listen Later Aug 8, 2022 27:58


    In this episode of Life Matters, Commissioner Johnston examines the meaning of the right to life. Why does this have to be about the law? Where did this right to life come from? Did it begin at America's founding, or is it a deeper, more widely recognized, universal truth  - a self evident truth - that everyone should take the time and interest to deliberate?   The American founders strongly felt this was so. They proclaimed to the world that they would form a new form of government that appealed to this universal, higher law, view of life and society. Now, with the Dobbs decision, the entire issue is laid at our feet. Individual states which comprise the United States, are now free to exercise the explicit God-given and constitutionally-explained authority to protect or take lives within their own borders. If a state determines that a human life can legally be taken within its borders it is authorizing capital punishment. The state itself must outline the specific rules and procedures to be followed so that that individuals life has had the due process of law. A trial, with evidence, with adequate defense, with right to appeal - the law must protect even that person's life from being taken unjustly.  Similarly, if a human life is taken outside of the law (extra-judicially) the state must also outline how and under what circumstances the appropriate protective measure can be taken. For this reason, each state has proscribed various forms of homicide - levels of severity, and appropriate punishments for these extrajudicial killings.   The Dobbs decision, in overturning Roe v. Wade, which licensed abortionists to kill at any time they decided, now gives the authority over life and death back to the states, from which it had been taken. Each state now will determine how a child in the womb is to be protected: at what stage of pregnancy, what standards of evidence, what conditions, who is authorized to take this child's life.  Each of these determinations will now be set state by state. In many states, these measures are being contemplated in the summer of 2022.  Perhaps, most importantly, the November elections of 2022 will determine the nature of the lawmakers who will make these laws. Federal government lawmakers - the Congress and Senate, are already trying to prohibit individual states from exercising this authority. Yet, this is an authority granted, in fact, instructed by the United States Constitution. Dobbs, rather than ending the abortion debate, has brought it home to every citizen. They must determine whom they should elect. They must determine what ideas should guide the lawmakers within their own states, and given the approach of Planned Parenthood et al., even local communities and their elected officials will be addressing the abortion mentality in their counties, cities, and schools. The elections of 2022 are critical for enacting the laws which will reflect the self-evident truth: that every innocent human life should be protected under the law. Such laws must be enacted if that law is in fact the law of a just government. “To ensure these rights, governments are instituted among men.” The laws and elections of 2022 are critical. Brian gives in-depth insights into the danger of being mislead at this moment, misled by those who would lie and misrepresent the killing of human babies.  The state of Indiana offers just one example. There, lawmakers asserted SB 1 would protect babies in Indiana, but in fact the deceitful and misleading language which they presented was craftily worded and specifically designed to allow abortions. Brian reminds listeners and readers to consult the works of many insightful authors on this subject such as Orwell and Kafka, but in particular C.S. Lewis, and his book, the Screwtape Letters.  In Screwtape, Lewis describes the genuinely demonic twisting of language and meanings and feelings to accomplish truly evil ends. “We are now in a very serious battle of ideas, and ideas have consequences,” says Brian. “This battle of ideas is not far away, and we often considers ideas as removed and far from physical reality, but the battle is now on us. And we must apply ourselves to these elections and these laws as if the sanctity of every life is at stake, because in fact it is.”

    It was a good week for election deniers. Several Trump-backed candidates sealed primary wins in Arizona, Michigan and Missouri. This includes businessman Blake Masters, who's vying for a Senate seat in Arizona and identifies as part of the “New Right.” Plus, Eric Schmitt won the GOP primary for Senate in Missouri. Both Masters and Schmitt have falsely denied the 2020 election results.  Meanwhile, the Democrats are hoping that a far-right candidate will be easier to beat in the November midterms. They supported some far-right candidates, including John Gibbs. Gibbs beat the more moderate incumbent, Representative Peter Meijer, who was one of the 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump.  What do those candidates' wins say about the evolving Republican Party? Is this a wise plan for Democrats? And how does this affect voters' faith in election integrity or democracy itself? Plus, red-leaning Kansas overwhelmingly rejected a Constitutional amendment that would allow lawmakers to ban or restrict abortions. Will the messaging used by abortion rights groups in Kansas resonate with voters across the country in the midterms? Can Democrats capitalize on this momentum? And was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's controversial trip to Taiwan bold or catastrophic?
