...Everyone is familiar with William Blackstone's famous aphorism, "That the king can do no wrong, is a necessary and fundamental principle of the English constitution." But what does that have to do with us on this side of the Atlantic Ocean, we who revolted against a "God-King" with the words "all men are created equal," broke free and created a constitutional Republic?
As it turns out, precious little. In 1996, Justice John Paul Stevens wrote that sovereign immunity is a judge-made doctrine that has been "thoroughly discredited" because it is founded on the notion "that a divinely ordained monarch 'can do no wrong.'"
Not surprisingly, "Sovereign immunity … is a right that cannot be found in the text or the framers' intent," wrote recognized legal scholar Erwin Chemerinsky.
More importantly, whether the federal government is subject to the Constitution's guarantee of equal protection was asked and answered in 1995. In a reverse discrimination lawsuit brought by a small family business that installed guardrails on federal highway projects, federal lawyers argued that the federal government was exempt from the equal protection clause because of its responsibility to rectify racial injustice.
The Supreme Court rejected that notion. Justice Sandra Day O'Connor wrote for the 5-4 majority in Adarand v. Pena, "[A]ll governmental action ['by whatever federal, state, or local governmental actor'] based on race ... should be subjected to detailed judicial inquiry to ensure that the personal right to equal protection of the laws has not been infringed."
Justice Antonin Scalia concurred, writing, "In the eyes of government, we are just one race here. It is American."
Another day, another legal filing and yet another unconstitutional legal assertion by the Obama administration. The end cannot come soon enough.

After all it’s unfair: Hillary Clinton won the “popular vote” so she should win, right?
Our Founders in their infinite wisdom created the Electoral College to ensure the STATES were fairly represented. Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of the nation?
The following list of statistics has been making the rounds on the Internet and it should finally put an end to the argument as to why the Electoral College makes sense.
Share this with as many whiners as you can.
There are 3,141 counties in the United States.
Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57.
There are 62 counties in New York State.
Trump won 46 of them.
Clinton won 16.
Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.
In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won Richmond)
Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
The United States is comprised of 3, 797,000 square miles.
When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.
Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc) don’t and shouldn’t speak for the rest of our country.

Democrats devised the government takeover of student loans as an entitlement that might never be repaid, though they sold it as a money saver.
