FOOD FOR THOUGHT—WHO WAS HUGO BLACK?


From: Hank Ashmore
The Deplorable Infidel

 

 

WHO WAS HUGO BLACK?

In 1947, in one of the most famous dissents in history, Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black argued that the Fourteenth Amendment incorporated all aspects of the Bill of Rights and applied them to the States. In this landmark decision, Everson v. Board of Education, the Supreme Court applied the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to state law. Did the Founding Fathers originally intend the Bill of Rights apply to the States? The preamble to the Bill of Rights, James Madison writings in Federalist 45, and Thomas Jefferson’s letter to John Cartwright all reveal the Founders wanted the regulations and standards of propriety in the Bill of Rights to be established by the states, not the federal government.

The 5-4 decision in this case was handed down on February 10, 1947. The Court, through Justice Black, ruled that a state bill was constitutionally permissible because the reimbursements were offered to all students regardless of religion and the payments the payments were made to parents and not to any religious institution. Perhaps as important as the actual outcome, was the interpretation given by the entire Court to the Establishment Clause. It reflected a broad and unconstitutional interpretation of the Clause that was to guide the Court’s decisions for decades to come. Justice Black wrote in his opinion: “In the words of Jefferson, the Clause against establishment of religion by law was intended to erect a wall of separation between church and state,”

As used in the United States, the term “separation between church and state” originated from a letter Thomas Jefferson wrote in response to a letter he had received from Baptist in Danbury. Connecticut. He wrote in the letter: “Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legislative powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between church and state.” Today, Jefferson’s figure of speech is accepted by the far left as a pithy description of the constitutionally prescribed church-state arrangement and has become the sacred icon of a strict separationist dogma that champions a secular polity in which religious influences are systematically and coercively stripped from public life.

In a letter to the Rev. Samuel Miller, dated January 23, 1808, Jefferson wrote: “I have duly received your favor of the 18th and am thankful to you for having written it, because it is more agreeable to prevent than to refuse what I do not think myself authorized to comply with. I consider the government of the United States as interdicted by the Constitution from intermeddling with religious institutions, their doctrines, discipline, or exercises. This results not only from the provision that no law shall be made respecting the establishment, or free exercise, or religion, but from that also which reserves to the states to powers not delegated to the U.S. Certainly no power to prescribe any religious exercise, or to assume authority in religious discipline, has been delegated to the federal government. It must rest with the states, as far as it can be in any human authority. But it is only proposed that I should recommend, not prescribe a day of fasting and prayer.”

 This letter shows Jefferson through the constitutional division between federal and state powers, as well as the First Amendment, prevented him from issuing a proclamation setting a day for fasting and thanksgiving. First, the Tenth Amendment reserves to the States all powers not delegated to the federal government. No power whatsoever to regulate religious matters has been delegated to the federal government in Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, the Enumerated Powers. Thus, any authority to do so, if authority exists, must rest with the States. The concept expressed in this letter is significant because it contributes to Jefferson’s thoughts on the degree of separation between church and state. As this letter indicates, Jefferson opposed any federal regulation of religious matters and if the authority to regulate religious matters can be placed in the hands of men, it must be done at the state level.

 The “high and impregnable” wall central to the past 60+ years of church-state jurisprudence, is not Jefferson’s wall; rather it is the wall that Justice Hugo Black built in 1947 in Everson v. Board of Education. Several key factors in Justice Black’s background inclined the Justice to rule unfavorably against religion. Justice Black began his political career in the wake of his successful defense of a Klu Klux Klansman, who shot and murdered a Catholic priest. He is a former Kladd of the Klavern of the Alabama Klu Klux Klan, who used his Klan base to secure a seat in the U.S. Senate and ultimately an appointment on the U.S. Supreme Court. Paul Blanshard was a controversial author, lawyer, humanist, and outspoken critic of Catholicism. Justice Black believed in Blanshard’s writings concerning the Catholic Church, Shared his mistrust of the Catholic Church, feared the influence and wealth of the Catholic Church, and perceived parochial education as a threat to public schools and democratic values.

The modern era application of the non-constitutional doctrine, “a wall of separation between church and state”, derives from Justice Black’s anti-Catholic bigotry in his Everson v. Board of Education ruling and is preserved by pervasive anti-religious prejudice through organizations such as the ACLU and the Freedom From Religion Foundation and has become a “constitutional principle” through the jurisprudence of an anti-Catholic bigot.

Coronavirus “Perfect Storm” Now Exists Thanks to Biosludge, Open Borders, Filthy Liberal Cities

china flag corona virusBy: Mike Adams

 

The horrendously bad decisions of human beings who hold power in government, media and industry have brought the human race to a “perfect storm” of conditions that will strongly contribute to the spread and fatalities of the corona-virus pandemic now threatening the world.

#1) Open borders policies that allow infected people to walk right across the border into the United States, with no health screening whatsoever.

#2) Sanctuary city policies that protect infected illegals from being discovered or deported.

#3) The widespread practice of biosludge distribution onto food crops. “Bioslugde” is the raw human sewage sludge that’s collected by every city in America, slightly dried to reduce water mass, then loaded onto trucks and dumped on nearby farm fields. It’s sold to farmers as “free fertilizer” because it’s rich in nitrogen. It also means that any corona-virus which makes its way into the sewage system will be distributed by U.S. cities onto farm fields, obviously contaminating food crops and multiplying the effects of the pandemic.

#4) The now-legal practice in Washington State of liquefying dead human bodies and flushing them into the municipal sewage system, where they become biosludge to be spread on crops. This practice was just recently legalized in Washington and it means the dead will be used to fertilize the food crops that are fed to the living. When people start dying from corona virus, will they also be flushed into the sewage systems?

#5) The practice — now common in filthy liberal cities — of allowing people to openly defecate in the streets, with no repercussions or arrests. Since viruses often infect human feces and other body excretions, this likely means that corona virus will be found in the raw human feces that gets washed into storm drains during rain storms. The storm drains in San Francisco, Seattle and other coastal cities empty directly into the ocean, where viruses are then washed onto the beaches of North America, infecting beach goers and mixing with aquatic ecosystems to produce even more potentially dangerous variants of infectious disease.

#6) The continued attacks on natural medicine and the censorship of sources like Natural News that can teach people how to avoid or overcome infections even when pharmaceutical medicines fail (or are completely out of supply).

#7) The compromised human immune system due to widespread vaccination practices that actually weaken, not strengthen, the veracity of the human immune response. People who routinely receive vaccinations such as flu shots are discovered to be more vulnerable to future infections. Widespread immunization practices across North America, Europe, Australia and other countries have created a highly vulnerable population that can be easily infected with corona-virus.

These factors now converge to create a perfect storm for the corona virus outbreak, which is actually a weaponized, engineered biological weapon being unleashed against humanity in order to achieve depopulation.

It will very likely succeed, since humanity has been begging for self-destruction through all the practices detailed above.

Most notably, the highest fatalities from any such pandemic will occur in cities; especially cities where the homeless are more populous and filthy, unsanitary conditions exist. In other words, liberal cities.

New 2020 Golf Rules For Seniors

 

PGA RULE CHANGES IN EFFECT FOR GOLFERS AGE 62+

Rule 9k.34– If a tree is between the ball and the hole, and the tree is deemed to be younger than the player, then the ball can be moved without penalty. This is so because this is simply a question of timing; when the player was younger, the tree was not there so the player is being penalized because of his age.

Rule 1.a.5– A ball sliced or hooked into the Rough shall be lifted and placed on the Fairway at a point equal to the distance it carried or rolled into the Rough with no penalty. The senior player should not be penalized for tall grass which ground keepers failed to mow.

Rule 2.d.6– A ball hitting a tree shall be deemed NOT to have hit the tree. This is simply bad luck and luck has no place in a scientific game. The senior player must estimate the distance the ball would have traveled if it had not hit the tree, and play the ball from there.

Rule 3.B.3– There shall be no such thing as a lost ball. The missing ball is on or near the course and will eventually be found and pocketed by someone else, thereby making it a stolen ball. The senior player is not to compound the felony by charging himself with a penalty.

Rule 4.c.7– If a putt passes over a hole without dropping, it is deemed to have dropped. The Law of Gravity supersedes the Rules of Golf.

Rule 5. – Putts that stop close enough to the cup that they could be blown in, may be blown in. This does not apply to balls more than three inches from the Hole. No one wants to make a mockery of the game.

Rule 6.a.9– There is no penalty for so-called “out of bounds”. If penny-pinching golf course owners bought sufficient land, this would not occur. The senior player deserves an apology, not a penalty.

Rule 7.G.15– There is no penalty for a ball in a water hazard, as golf balls should float. Senior players should not be penalized for any shortcomings of the manufacturers.

Rule 8.k.9– Advertisements claim that golf scores can be improved by purchasing new golf equipment. Since this is financially impractical for many senior players, one-half stroke per hole may be subtracted for using old equipment.

Please advise all your senior friends of these important rule changes and keep multiple copies in your golf bag. Those not following the rules need to be provided a copy.

Golf is…above all…a game of integrity.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Hills, Ridges, and Tracks on Mars

Explanation: Sometimes, even rovers on Mars stop to admire the scenery. Just late last November the Curiosity rover on Mars paused to photograph its impressive surroundings. One thing to admire, straight ahead, was Central Butte, an unusual flat hill studied by Curiosity just a few days before this image was taken. To its right was distant Mount Sharp, the five-kilometer central peak of entire Gale crater, the interior of which Curiosity is exploring. Mount Sharp, covered in sulfates, appears quite bright in this colorized, red-filtered image. To the far left, shrouded in a very dark shadow, was the south slope of Vera Rubin ridge, an elevation explored previously by Curiosity. Between the ridge and butte were tracks left by Curiosity’s wheels as they rolled forward, out of the scene. In the image foreground is, of course, humanity’s current eyes on Mars: the complex robotic rover Curiosity itself. Later this year, if all goes well, NASA will have another rover — and more eyes — on Mars. Today you can help determine the name of this rover yourself, but tomorrow is the last day to cast your vote.
