Think Hard About This…

An Editorial by Jack Bennett

(The views expressed are those of the author).

Some people have brought up the fact that they won’t vote if the eventual nominee was not the person they wanted. I just want to put something in perspective concerning the Supreme Court.

Justice Scalia’s seat is vacant. Ginsberg is 82 years old. Kennedy is 79 and Breyer is 77. Thomas is 67. The data shows that the average age of a Supreme Court retirement or death occurs after 75. These are 5 vacancies that will likely come up over the next 4-8 years. The next President will have the power to potentially create a 7-2 Supreme Court skewed in their ideology. Think about that: 7-2 !

If the next President appoints 5 young justices, it will guarantee control of the Supreme Court

for an entire generation. And 7-2 decisions will hold up much more over time than 5-4 decisions which are viewed as lacking in mandate.

Hillary has made it clear she will use the Supreme Court to go after the 2nd Amendment.

She has literally said that the Supreme Court was wrong in its Heller decision stating that the Court should overturn and remove “the right to keep and bear arms.” Period.

Anyone and Everyone who is saying that they won’t vote for one candidate or the other if they are the GOP nominee, please realize this. Please hear this!!

If Hillary Clinton wins and gets to make these appointments, you likely will never see another conservative victory at the Supreme Court level for the rest of your life. Ever.

Donald Trump has been selected as the GOP Nominee! Remember Romney?

Over three million conservatives who had voted for McCain did not cast a vote for Romney (for whatever reason). And the result was four additional years of Obama.

And one final thought, Hillary’s already on record as saying that her buddy Obama “would make a great Supreme Court Justice”.

Did you just hear that last sentence? Now are you scared? You should be. One vote does count..

Remember, all that is necessary for evil to succeed is for good men and women to stand by and do nothing.

BENNETT: Memorial Day Weekend 2016

by Jack Bennett

As we remember those who have gone before us on this Memorial Day weekend, let us remember what we must undertake so that those, who have died, will not have died in vain.

Now let’s set the record straight! There is no argument over the choice between peace and war. But, there is only one guaranteed way you can have peace and you can have it in the next second. All that is needed for immediate peace is to surrender.

But every lesson in history tells us that a greater risk lies in accommodation. This is the security that our well-intentioned liberal friends refuse to face. Their policy of accommodation is appeasement and it gives no choice between peace and war, but only the choice of war or surrender.

If we continue in appeasement – if we continue to back down – we will eventually have to face the final demand, “the ultimatum”, and what then?

When Nikita Khrushchev told his people he already knew the answer – that our retreat was the result of the pressure of the Cold War – he knew our surrender would be voluntary because of our weaknesses – spiritually, morally, and economically.

He believed this because he heard voices saying the slogan “better Red than dead”, or as one
commentator puts it: “ I’d rather live on my knees than die on my feet”.

And therein lies the road to war, because those voices do not speak for the rest of us.

If nothing is worth dying for, then when did this concept begin? Just as in the face of our enemy: Should Moses have told the Israelites to stay in Egypt? Should Jesus have refused the cross? Should the soldiers at Concord have refused to fire the shot heard around the world? Should those who have sacrificed and are remembered here this day be forgotten? For they did not die in vain.

Where, then, is the road to peace? There is a simple answer after all. You and I must have the courage to tell our enemy that there is a price we will pay to sustain our future, and a point at which they must not cross. You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.

We will preserve for our children this society – the last great place on earth – or we will sentence them to a thousand years of darkness.

So on this Memorial Day weekend, let us renew our pledge to this country. Let us renew our course of action. Let us make America great again!
