PEACEFUL PROTESTS

Nonviolent Resistance

Nonviolent resistance (NVR or nonviolent action) is the practice of achieving goals such as social change through symbolic protests, civil disobedience, economic or political noncooperation, satyagraha, or other methods, without using violence.

As the day draws closer, as more and more policies are withdrawn and rejected, as new ones as forcibly introduce, we must stand up.

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the United States Congress from enacting legislation that would abridge the right of the people to assemble peaceably.

 The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution makes this prohibition applicable to state governments.

The Supreme Court of the United States has held that the First Amendment protects the right to conduct a peaceful public assembly.

MARRIAGE EQUALITY

There’s an app on my iPhone called ‘Timehop‘.

It brings up memories of pictures you have posted before.

It will give you the time frame and how many years ago the particular picture was posted.

This one came up today.

Even though the glorious date was June 26, 2015, I’m sharing it now.

Remember, love won.

Most importantly …. we now have to protect it.

In the United States of America, same-sex marriage has been legal in all states, Washington, D.C., as well as all U.S. territories except American Samoa, but not on Indian lands, since June 26, 2015, when the United States Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that state-level bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional.

WHITE INVADERS

~Native Americans and the Federal Government~

At the start of the twentieth century there were approximately 250,000 Native Americans in the USA – just 0.3 per cent of the population – most living on reservations where they exercised a limited degree of self-government.

During the course of the nineteenth century they had been deprived of much of their land by forced removal westwards, by a succession of treaties (which were often not honored by the white authorities) and by military defeat by the USA as it expanded its control over the American West.

In 1831 the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Marshall, had attempted to define their status. He declared that Indian tribes were ‘domestic dependent nations’ whose ‘relation to the United States resembles that of a ward to his guardian’. Marshall was, in effect, recognizing that America’s Indians are unique in that, unlike any other minority, they are both separate nations and part of the United States.

This helps to explain why relations between the federal government and the Native Americans have been so troubled.

bline

A guardian prepares his ward for adult independence, and so Marshall’s judgement implies that US policy should aim to assimilate Native Americans into mainstream US culture. But a guardian also protects and nurtures a ward until adulthood is achieved, and therefore Marshall also suggests that the federal government has a special obligation to care for its Native American population.

As a result, federal policy towards Native Americans has lurched back and forth, sometimes aiming for assimilation and, at other times, recognizing its responsibility for assisting Indian development.

… and it continues to this day!!

DISGRACED IN ALABAMA

Roy Moore Suspended From Alabama Supreme Court For Anti-Gay Marriage Order

~KARMA~

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore suspended over same-sex marriage order
By Ray Sanchez, CNN

(September 30, 2016)

Alabama’s chief justice Roy Moore was suspended without pay Friday, September 30,  for the rest of his term for directing probate judges to enforce the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.

redlineb

The state Court of the Judiciary, in a 50-page decision, cited Moore’s “disregard for binding federal law” as a reason for the suspension.
Moore’s administrative order to probate judges was issued in January – seven months after a landmark Supreme Court ruling legalized gay and lesbian nuptials nationwide.
Moore’s term runs through January 2019.

He is 69 and will be ineligible to run for re-election because of his age.

polusa
Friday’s ruling also cited Moore’s “history with this court,” saying it was the second time he had been brought before the judiciary court for “actions grossly inconsistent with his duties as Chief Justice.”

WHAT DO YOU SEE?

I consider myself a liberal.

My views are liberal in almost every sense.

My way of thinking, my way of life, my ethnicity, my lifestyle, my gender …

…. doesn’t  allow for any other way of thinking.

At the present time, with the other “candidate” presented by the GOP, this country faces, dangerous times and the possibility of moving backwards rather than forward.

It’s time to think about the children and the grand children who will inherit the reality that we leave behind.

Just a thought …

SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES

The Enormous, Unbelievable Stakes For The Supreme Court In 2016

Several justices are statistically likely to retire in the coming years. None of them have revealed plans to step down, and if all of them stick around through the end of Obama’s term, the 2016 presidential election could lead to a cataclysmic reshaping of the Supreme Court, and with it the country.

As of Election Day in 2016, three of the nine justices will be more than 80 years old. A fourth will be 78.

The average retirement age for a Supreme Court justice is 78.7, according to a 2006 study by the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy.

“Appointments to the Supreme Court are always extraordinary consequential.

But certainly under the circumstances, considering the age of a number of justices and the 5-4 splits in so many cases, it’s now more important than ever,” said Caroline Fredrickson, president of the American Constitution Society, a progressive legal advocacy group.

The modern Supreme Court is the most polarized along party lines in generations, having decided a host of deeply consequential issues by fragile 5 to 4 margins. That mirrors the increasingly political confirmation process and tendency of Democrats and Republicans to nominate judges that reflect their movement’s world view.

The replacement of even one justice, let alone several, could affect laws which have a profound impact on millions of Americans.

The Court’s conservative decisions on issues like campaign finance limits, voting rights and religious freedom would be prime candidates for revisiting if one conservative justice is replaced under a Democratic president.

BEST SPEECH IN A LONG TIME

I was watching the Rachel Maddow show last night.

Among the many topics she was going to cover, she mentioned that she had a live interview with Senator Elizabeth Warren (D), Massachusetts.

I have to tell you, this was one of the best speeches I’ve heard in a long time; especially during these crazy days of the 2016 election campaign and all.

Her main point was addressing the members of Congress, who have been stubbornly denying a duly elected president from doing his job, to do their job.

This is the job they were elected to do by their own constituents.

Stubborn mules ….. let Senator Warren explain it.

She does quite a job a it.

Senate Republicans: Do Your Job

There’s a vacancy on the most important court in America, and the message from Senate Republicans is crystal clear: forget the Constitution. For Senate Republicans, it does not matter who President Obama nominates because they will allow no votes and will hold no hearings on that nominee. Their response to one of the most solemn and consequential tasks that our government performs is to pretend that the nominee — and President Obama himself — do not exist.

At the same time that they are blocking all possible Supreme Court nominees, Senate Republicans are in a panic because their party appears to be on a path to nominate one of two extremists for president — extremists who attack the legitimacy of their political opponents and demean millions of Americans. Senate Republicans worry that, if either candidate is selected to be the party’s standard-bearer, the Republican party will lose in November.

Republicans’ stance on Supreme Court nominees and their response to the extremists at the top of their party’s ticket are the same issue. And the solution is simple. If Republican Senators want to stand up to extremists running for president, they can start by standing up to extremists in the Senate.

They can start by doing their jobs.

Sen13

Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution says that the president nominates justices to the Supreme Court, with the advice and consent of the Senate.

There is no secret clause that says “…except when that president is a Democrat.” If Senators object to a nominee’s qualifications, they can vote no and explain themselves to the American people. Although President Obama and I are members of the same political party, I haven’t agreed with every single nomination he’s made — and I have made my objections clear. That’s how advice and consent works: learn about the nominees, and then use your best, good faith judgment to evaluate their qualifications.

Because here’s the deal: extremists might not like it, but Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008 by nine million votes and won re-election in 2012 by five million votes. There were no recounts or hanging chads, no stuffing the ballot box or tampering with voting machines, no intervention from the Supreme Court. President Obama was elected the legitimate president seven years ago, and he is the legitimate president right now.

So if it’s true that some Republican Senators are finally ready to stand up to the extremism that denies the legitimacy of this president and of the Constitution, I say to them: do your job. Vote on a Supreme Court nominee. Vote on District Court judges and Circuit Court judges. Vote on ambassadors. Vote on agency leaders and counterterrorism officials.

If Senate Republicans want to stop extremism in their party, they can start by showing the American people that they respect the president and the Constitution enough to do their job in the United States Senate.

FREEDOM TO MARRY HAS A NEW AD … LOVE WINS

On June 26, 2015, the United States Supreme Court issued a historic, sweeping ruling in favor of the freedom to marry in Obergefell v. Hodges. The unprecedented decision, decades in the making, will soon bring the freedom to marry to same-sex couples across the country, ending marriage discrimination once and for all.

The ruling means that same-sex couples throughout the entire nation will no longer be banned from the rights and responsibilities of marriage guaranteed by the Constitution.

Evan Wolfson, founder and president of Freedom to Marry, celebrated joyously with the thousands of Americans couples who will finally be able to share in the fundamental freedom to marry the person they love. He said:

Today’s ruling is a transformative triumph decades in the making, a momentous victory for freedom, equality, inclusion, and above all, love.

For anyone who ever doubted that we could bend the arc of the moral universe toward justice, today the United States again took a giant step toward the more perfect union we the people aspire to.

Today the Liberty Bell rings alongside wedding bells across an ocean of joy.

With the ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, the justices affirmed what a super-majority of Americans had come to understand: the freedom to marry is a precious, fundamental right that belongs to all, and that same-sex couples and our families share the same dreams and needs as any others.

SUPREME COURT’s landmark ruling legalizes gay marriage NATIONWIDE

WASHINGTON, June 26, 2015

(Reuters)

The Supreme Court ruled on Friday that the U.S. Constitution provides same-sex couples the right to marry, handing a historic triumph to the American gay rights movement.

The court ruled 5-4 that the Constitution’s guarantees of due process and equal protection under the law mean that states cannot ban same-sex marriages. With the landmark ruling, gay marriage becomes legal in all 50 states.

Immediately after the decision, same-sex couples in many of states where gay marriage had been banned headed to county clerks’ offices for marriage licenses as state officials issued statements saying they would respect the ruling.

President Barack Obama, appearing in the White House Rose Garden, hailed the ruling as a milestone in American justice that arrived “like a thunderbolt.”

PresO2

“This ruling is a victory for America,” said Obama, the first sitting president to support gay marriage. “This decision affirms what millions of Americans already believe in their hearts. When all Americans are treated as equal, we are all more free.”

Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing on behalf of the court, said the hope of gay people intending to marry “is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”

Kennedy, a conservative who often casts the deciding vote in close cases, was joined in the majority by the court’s four liberal justices.

Kennedy, appointed by Republican President Ronald Reagan in 1988, has now authored all four of the court’s major gay rights rulings, with the first coming in 1996. As with his 2013 opinion when the court struck down a federal law that denied benefits to same-sex couples, Kennedy stressed the dignity of marriage.

“Without the recognition, stability and predictability marriage offers, their children suffer the stigma of knowing their families are somehow lesser,” Kennedy wrote.
