The “Consider This!” Podcast, Episode 48: State Attorney Generals are Not Judges, Tea Party “Terrorists”, and the George Zimmerman Trial
The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less.
Can a state government decide what law it will and will not uphold? In Pennsylvania, the state Attorney General has promoted herself to state Supreme Court Justice by refusing to defend a state law’s constitutionality because of her own personal opinion of the law. So then, do we need to keep two sets of laws for the state; one with a Democrat as the AG and one when it’s a Republican? When the US Supreme Court said that the people of California didn’t have standing to try to keep their own constitutional amendment in force, they opened the door to this.
The Left’s “Birthers”: 26% of Obama voters think the Tea Party is a larger terror threat than radical Muslims. Yes, really.
The trial of George Zimmerman riveted the nation’s media attention for weeks, which is understandable when the charges are 4 counts of 1st degree murder and 1 count of 3rd degree murder. OK, I’m playing with you there. It was just 1 count of 2nd degree murder that was on the line for George Zimmerman. Those other charges were against Kermit Gosnell, the abortion doctor, who was ultimately convicted of 3 of the 4 murder 1 counts, and the murder 3 count was reduced to involuntary manslaughter. So how did the coverage compare?
And all the while, in that shining beacon of gun-control, Chicago, hundreds of people, many of them Trayvon Martin’s age and race, are shot dead every year. They don’t get media coverage, or marches, or Attorney General Eric Holder’s attention, or a moment of silence at a Beyonce concert.
