Christian Baker Persecuted

After four years of litigation, the Colorado Supreme Court has said they will not take an appeal in the case Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Craig. In that case, Jack Phillips refused to use his business to make a gay wedding cake for Charlie Craig and David Mullins. Craig and Mullins filed a discrimination complaint against him with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. Phillips sued to defend himself against this complaint. The court ordered Phillips to make cakes for gay couples in the future. He was also ordered to submit quarterly compliance reports and make all his staff undergo sensitivity training to indoctrinate them for the gays and against the baker’s beliefs.

Obama’s Catch And Release Policy

Border patrol agents have been saying for several years that President Obama is tying their hands and making it impossible to do their jobs. Testimony by Agent Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, is especially outrageous because it exposes the fact that President Obama is telling Homeland Security to violate his own policy. Obama insisted that he would make it a priority to enforce the laws on the books. He said that illegal immigrants caught at the border would be deported. Clearly that was just his political salesmanship. As Agent Judd pointed out, President Obama is actually encouraging more illegals to come to America by forcing border patrol agents to release the ones they catch at the border.

Not a nation of immigrants

CNBC reports:
President Barack Obama said Thursday the Supreme Court's immigration ruling was disappointing, and he blasted Donald Trump's proposed solutions as "fantasy." ...

"It's a fantasy that offers nothing to help the middle class and demeans our tradition of being both a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants," Obama said at the White House.
If we are a nation of laws, then the President should not be excusing illegala immigration.

And the USA is not a nation of immigrants. Immigrants are a higher percentage of the population than in the past, but they have always been a small minority.

We Don’t Need Voting by Murderers

Voting is something for law-abiding citizens to do in shaping the future of our Nation. It is like service on a jury. Both are essential activities to preserve our freedom and prosperity. We do not want just anyone to be allowed to serve on a jury, or to vote. People who are in our country illegally, for example, should not cast ballots to pick our next leaders. People who are only 14 or 16 years old are too immature to make jury decisions or vote in elections. We also do not want murderers, rapists, and other convicted criminals sitting on our juries or voting in elections. But Democrats have figured out that convicted felons are more likely to vote for the Democratic Party than for the Republican Party, so liberals push for granting the right to vote and to serve on juries to people who have been convicted of murder, rape or other horrible crimes.
