Federal Judge Susan Dlott - The gift that keeps on giving
The wife of the disbarred and disgraced Stan Chesley, and Bill Clinton appointee, has done it again. After giving us Tracie Hunter, and the taxpayers the $1.7 million bill for Hunter's incompetence and criminal conviction, Judge Dlott has given us another reason to question Dlott's own competence. Federal Judge Dlott "ordered" polling locations in four counties to remain open after they had already closed and the workers, ballots, and equipment were all packed up and moved out.
Judge Dlott is one of many federal judges who do what is right in their own eyes rather than following the dictates and plain language of the US Constitution. The federal government does not have the Constitutional authority to impose their will over state or local election issues having to do with traffic concerns.
I wish these federal overlords would consider the fact that the states created the federal government. We are not subservient to them.
For those who believe that the "supremacy clause" gives the federal government absolute and full authority over the states, I'd like to remind you of the 10th Amendment. It supersedes the "supremacy clause." Also, consider the fact that the states delegated very limited and narrow powers to the federal government. They are outlined in Article I Section VIII. The US Constitution does not allow for the federal government to determine the limits, if any, of their own powers.
US Supreme Court Nominee
President Obama has nominated Merrick Garland. He is a 63-year-old liberal. Should the unthinkable occur, and Hillary Clinton wins in November, the US Senate should quickly move to confirm Judge Garland. Otherwise, a "President Hillary Clinton" (I just typed that with vomit lodged in the back of my throat.) would likely nominate a much younger liberal. The choices would be the lesser of two evils. But I'd rather have less evil than more evil.
