Changing the Rules, Changing America: The Senate and Judicial Supremacy

Over the past 60 years, liberals have stealthily and intermittently begun confirming radical activists to the courts, consistently using Senate procedure to shut conservatives out of the federal nomination process while creating the illusion that they are filibustering. The result: liberal judges who legislate from the bench. Call your Senator now and urge him to oppose Obama's 9th Circuit Court nomination, Michelle Friedland.

Farmer Starts Property Rights Revolution

For normal Americans, it's "follow the law or face the consequences." It's time to hold bureaucrats to the same standard.
