By now, it’s safe to say that conservatives have been fighting back with all their might against the liberal left for years.
But when it comes to defending the Constitution, they’ve largely been left out of the game.
A few weeks ago, the conservative radio host Alex Jones announced that he was shutting down his show for three weeks to protest the upcoming inauguration of President Donald Trump.
The president himself is hardly a supporter of the Constitution.
When he took office in January, he declared that he would “end executive orders that undermine the integrity of the Executive Branch.”
He’s since taken to issuing executive orders, like the one that declared that any executive order he issued would be null and void and that the president could rescind them at any time.
So when conservatives did take to the streets in January to protest Trump’s inauguration, they were left out in the cold.
And that’s not even counting the thousands of protesters who gathered in Washington, D.C., to oppose Trump’s first inauguration.
As the Washington Examiner’s Dylan Byers noted in January: “Trump’s inauguration was not a success story.
It was not exactly a protest march.”
Instead, it was a day in the life of the president who promised to fight for Americans, a day when he promised to “take care of our vets.”
Trump did take care of the vets.
He signed an executive order in March to cut down on the amount of military personnel deployed abroad.
And the president has been working with Congress on repealing Obamacare, but conservatives have had little to say about that in recent months.
It’s no wonder that many conservative politicians are frustrated that their political opponents are so eager to use the Constitution to attack them and their conservative values.
That’s why conservatives are taking the fight to the liberal mainstream media.
Conservatives, after all, are fighting back by using the First Amendment to challenge liberal policies, and the liberal press is ignoring that fight.
The New York Times and the Washington Post have been publishing a lot of articles defending the First and Fourth Amendments in recent weeks, and they’ve done so with little or no debate.
“The First Amendment is one of the most powerful and enduring legal instruments in the history of the world,” Justice Antonin Scalia once told the court.
“It provides a basis for the rule of law and the rule that all men have the equal right to speak their minds, no matter how disagreeable those disagreeings might be.”
The liberal media has, in fact, been ignoring the First, Fourth, and Fifth Amendments for years, and it’s not just liberal journalists.
The New York Daily News has been writing about them in an editorial titled “The Left Is Going To Do Everything In Its Power To Defend Its Own Constitutional Rights.”
The Daily News recently ran a story about the “fiercely divided” Supreme Court and suggested that liberals were “using the First,” “the Four,” and “the Fifth” amendments to argue that they’re being “intimidated” by the court’s conservative justices.
The same article went on to suggest that conservatives should be “proud” to stand up for the First amendment and “end the political correctness of the past.”
The Washington Post’s editorial board has been similarly silent on the issue.
One conservative commentator even argued in a piece published in The Hill that liberals are “playing the First” by trying to “protect” the Constitution by using its protections against executive orders.
These comments come after liberals have been claiming that conservatives are “saying the Constitution doesn’t apply to the First Branch.”
In fact, the Supreme Court has already made clear that the First is just one branch of government and that conservatives must respect the authority of the other branches.
In 1789, Justice Thomas wrote that the Framers of the First Amendments understood that “the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution are reserved to the States.”
In a similar vein, Justice Samuel Alito also said in 2009 that the Constitution does not give the president “any authority to legislate or regulate anything.”
Alito also noted that Congress had no power over federal laws, and that, in his view, the First Congress did not “authorize the President to interfere with the States in their internal affairs.”
“The Framers believed the President was the legislative branch of the government, and therefore, Congress has no authority over the executive branch,” he added.
“And the Framer understood that the President is also a law-making branch.”
Alitzen added that he believes the Constitution “has been interpreted so far as it provides that the executive has a role in carrying out the laws of the United State.”
He went on: “In my view, it would be absurd to suggest the President has no constitutional role in implementing or implementing the laws, or the Framing Congress does not have a role to play in implementing the law.”
In other words, liberals are simply trying to use this Constitution to “defend” their right to engage in political
