What is a reasonable expectation of privacy?
The Fourth Amendment states that the “right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, SHALL NOT BE violated.” Yet that is exactly what is happening today, specifically in regards to electronic communications. Today, the major question looming over much of our private electronic communication is what expectation of privacy we hold in it. Since | Read More »
Obama Administration turns on media

This includes over twenty separate lines, in multiple offices, incoming and outgoing call logs, along with the duration of the conversations. It includes home and cell phone records. Essentially, the White House wants to know who has been leaking information to the press – not a | Read More »
Our late-term abortion reform mandate
The Kermit Gosnell murders have presented America with a mandate to reform the way we handle late term abortions in this country. The business pressures along with the problem of the double client create conflicts of interest that are too strong. See here: http://griffinelection.wordpress.com/2013/04/25/the-gosnell-murders-create-a-mandate-for-late-term-abortion-reform/ Since we first addressed the mandate, the Live Action video has been released by Lila Rose of a Washington D.C. abortionist | Read More »
GOP holds the immigration cards
The Senate GOP is in a good position in the immigration reform debate. I appreciate the fact that there are R senators that want to fix our failing immigration system. I also appreciate the fighters in the caucus who aren’t willing to simply lie down and vote yes on whatever leadership tells them to vote on. And so, we have two warring factions that both | Read More »
Does the Schumer/Toomey/Manchin gun CONTROL bill allow the feds to deny you Second Amendment rights without Due Process?
The Senate has just reached cloture and will debate and vote on a new gun CONTROL bill. It is being reported that Pat Toomey’s newest baby, the gun CONTROL bill being pushed by Obama democrats, includes a provision that allows the doctors to place American citizens on a list if they are deemed to fall short of mental health requirements to obtaining a firearm.

Standing Strong on the Constitution
Standing Strong on the Constitution This week, Senate Democrats will seek to create a new and overarching federal program that allows the federal government to infringe on every American’s Constitutional right to acquire and bear arms. Democrats plan to introduce universal background checks for all law-abiding Americans. We shouldn’t let them. Don’t be fooled. Background checks alone are worthless. These checks must co-exist with newer | Read More »
Oppose homosexual marriage because it is sin
Over the weekend, I had the misfortune of reading a redstate article by a self-proclaimed conservative Christian condoning homosexual marriage. I’ve never met this guy, yet he is very familiar to me. Like the racist that has “many black friends,” he is ultraconservative, attends church and is raising a family. These facts are meant to endear him to the reader and in fact create a | Read More »
Mark Sanford: unfit for office
In the coming days, disgraced former Governor Mark Sanford will face off against Curtis Bostic in the Republican nomination run-off for Tim Scott’s now-open House Seat. Voters may or may not be bothered by a sitting Governor who is unfaithful to his wife while at the same time posing as a family values candidate. Politicians have been known to cheat on their spouses and the | Read More »
Ruled by politicians
The quality of leadership in America tends to ebb and flow. Obviously, we’re at a low point right now, not just because of the dismal Obama experiment but because of Republican and Democrat leadership on Capitol Hill. The past century’s advent of polling data seems to have permanently altered the character of politicians negatively. We are now ruled by politicians. I would prefer to think | Read More »
Why is Paul Ryan misleading us on Obamacare?
House Republicans, led by Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI), are attempting to make you believe that they are defunding Obamacare. They can say so because Ryan budget does just that. But this is the same budget that has no hope of being taken up by the Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate. The applicable governing law that will be passed by both legislative bodies and signed by the President | Read More »
