Read it all, but here’s a sample graf:

…In fact, the various individuals and institutions involved in the Boston horror-farce are no more or less competent than the average person you meet in the course of an average day. Given the powers and weapons at their disposal, they are certainly far more dangerous, but that is a very different matter. The Killer Klowns of Death who patrolled Boston and environs last week are exactly as competent as that young, doubtless “well-intentioned” guy who took your order at lunch — and got it wrong…

Ol’ Remus: Henchmen

From the latest Woodpile Report:

15th April 2013 – The Supreme Court on Monday said it would not weigh in on a major Second Amendment question that has divided the lower courts: May states bar or strictly limit the carrying of guns in public for self-defense? The justices turned down a case concerning a New York State law that requires people seeking permits to carry guns in public to demonstrate that they have a special need for self-protection. In urging the justices to hear the case, the National Rifle Association called the law “a de facto ban on carrying a handgun outside the home.”

With this outrage, the federal courts stand revealed as utterly corrupt, willful accomplices in the drive to strip America of that which made it unique: governance based on the natural rights of man. It’s well to remember why the states instituted a central government—to protect and defend the Constitution, just as their oath of office demands. Its one and only function was to guarantee transactions between peoples, institutions, the states and foreign countries were in accordance with the founding law of the land. Those powers granted to it were for this purpose and this purpose only. Where disputes arose in to how to apply the Constitution in specific cases, the Supreme Court was charged with discovering the way of highest fidelity. Over time the court abandoned this duty and regarded the Constitution as an inconvenient, and at times embarrassing, anachronism. Where clever gaming of its black-letter provisions didn’t work, the court referred to its own decisions instead, and where that didn’t work, it was ignored, at most begrudgingly cited as a footnote for antiquarians. This is how it’s done today, mainly, with a wink and a nod and a Georgetown cocktail party afterward.

That one man believes himself empowered to prevent another from protecting his life is outrageous in itself. In New York we find an even more absurd proposition. To bear arms for self protection outside the home, the state of New York requires a demonstration of need in advance of the event itself. If this weren’t bizarre enough, the need must be demonstrated to be “special.” Apparently the applicant is required to know with certainty when and where a mortal threat will be presented, and also convince the state that his need to survive the event is greater than another person’s. The Second Amendment imposes no such requirements, its authors having been of sound mind, yet a lower court decided New York was acting in accordance with the Constitution. The Supreme Court saw no grounds to review the decision and let it stand.

This isn’t merely a lapse. This is in a class by itself, even beyond upholding the fugitive slave laws. The federal courts are openly serving self-described enemies of the Constitution, and this in addition to protecting and defending government entities—states and municipalities—operating outside their legal mandate. In doing so the federal courts have exposed themselves as a willing hand in the dismantling of the rule of law and thereby forfeit their legitimacy and the respect of honorable people. In their recklessness they’ve not considered how dangerous a path they’ve chosen: if the Constitution doesn’t protect the people from government, it doesn’t protect government from the people…
