ICYMI: The One State Law That Changes 2020

Email Email Print

Even before this change came to the public’s attention, California’s Senator Kamala Harris was my early prediction to be the likely Democratic Party standard-bearer for 2020.  Move California’s primary to March, and “likely” becomes “probable.”  Those who would rather have their names on the top of the ticket had better hope the DNC schedules as many debates for 2019 and early 2020 as the RNC allowed to happen in 2012.

And of course they should have conservative pundits mixed into those debate panels.  And, of course, any would-be Democratic nominee should be doing all types of media interviews as early and as often as possible.  If President Trump’s success in 2016 taught anything, it is that you can’t do too many interviews.

Hurricane…Fires…Earthquake…Hurricane – It has been an interesting few weeks.  And if you have paid attention to such things you will find many people with many points of view have claimed these natural disasters are some sort of divine message trying to tell us whatever it is the person making the claim wants us to hear.  I cannot help but think of Elijah at Horeb:

 So He said, “Go forth and stand on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord was passing by! And a great and strong wind was rending the mountains and breaking in pieces the rocks before the Lordbut the Lord was not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake.  After the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a sound of a gentle blowing.  When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. And behold, a voice came to him and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

God did not speak through the heavy winds, the earthquake or the fire – He spoke in the gentle blowing.  We have to listen to God’s voice, He does not shout at us.  But when He speaks…

Safe Spaces Writ Large (Updated)

This morning, Phillip DeVoe sat in for Jim Geraghty writing the Jolt and looked at a NR piece by Jonathon Tobin on fake news.  They both conclude that in the news business, particularly the TV news business, “that the line between opinion and fact has been blurred in today’s journalism, which leads to opinions being considered as facts.”  It put me in mind of the post I wrote yesterday about how the rule of law seems to be fading currently, that agenda matters more than legalities.  The examples just keep piling up.

Yesterday Senator Dianne Feinstein questioned the religious faith of a judicial nominee in complete defiance of Article VI of the constitution.  Back in the day, when I spent a lot of time looking into and thinking about Article VI, I was stunned by how little case law there was on that particular article of the constitution.  The constitutional scholars I consulted as to why that was the situation were unanimous in saying that such was the case because the article was plain in its meaning and held most sacred by all Americans.  Apparently that is not true anymore – at least for one Senator from California.

By all accounts Hillary Clinton is blaming everyone, including her teammates, for her loss last year.  Clearly Clinton’s agenda was to win the election and policy issues were at best secondary.  If policy mattered would she be dumping all over those who now carry that policy forward?  As I said yesterday, “If there are no values, there is only the personal.”

In point of fact, the confusion we are seeing evidenced here results in a disappearance of all sorts of lines, not just reporting and opinion or legalities and agendas – people cannot tell the difference between the public and the personal, the spiritual and the secular, themselves and their culture.
