Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia at Brooklyn Law School. Damion Edwards for Brooklyn Law School
At a reception in a sculpture gallery in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, the Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia lumbered through a small crowd of judges, lawyers and law professors, dispensing jovial greetings while sampling appetizers and sipping wine.
Mr. Scalia was being feted after a recent 90-minute question-and-answer session with students from Brooklyn Law School, and more than a few distinguished jurists tried their best to inconspicuously sidle up to him for a few words.

Judge Napolitano has penned an interesting essay on the Ukraine situation:
Ukraine was a part of that union until the evil empire dissolved in 1991. It was the most economically productive part of that union.
Today it enjoys a mostly free market and is highly entrepreneurial, though partly a welfare state.
Roughly two-thirds of Ukraine identifies with Europe and one-third with Russia.

The political philosopher Edmund Burke once remarked that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good folks to do nothing.
A glaring example of the impending triumph of a constitutional evil that could be stopped by folks who have been largely silent is the tyranny coming from the White House.
The folks who can stop this and are doing nothing about it are our elected representatives in Congress.

After all, Napolitano is a conservative Republican and President Obama is a straight-ahead liberal Democrat.

Rand Paul’s Paleo ProblemNational Review ^ | 07/17/2013 | Jonah GoldbergPosted on Wednesday, July 17, 2013 10:03:28 AM by SeekAndFind
Rand Paul is the most interesting contender for the Republican nomination. And when I say interesting, I mean that in the broadest sense.A case in point: Last week, the Kentucky senator hit some turbulence when the Washington Free Beacon reported that Jack Hunter, Paul’s aide and the co-author of his book, The Tea Party Goes to Washington, was once the Southern Avenger.
Starting in the 1990s, as a radio shock-jock, Hunter would wear a wrestling mask made from a Confederate flag, while making jokes about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and having the South re-secede.“Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger does regret that Lincoln’s murder . . . turned him into a martyr,”

A word about Jack Hunter:
Yesterday you saw some hawks, whose ideology is dying and whose worldview is being discredited every day, launch an attack on Senator Rand Paul by attacking one of his brilliant aides, Jack Hunter.
Jack’s sin in their eyes was having spoken favorably of states’ rights, and negatively of Lincoln. They can’t seem to recognize that states’ rights–even secession–does not equal racism; it constitutes a brake on the feds’ march to totalitarianism. Most modern day states’ rights advocates recognize the sovereignty of the states and their inherent ability to nullify and avoid federal violations of the Constitution in order to protect life and liberty from an overgrown, intrusive federal leviathan that literally now interferes in or spies on every facet of our lives.
And most historians and legal scholars who appreciate personal liberty and limited government recognize that the history of Lincoln’s assaults on civil liberties is a topic capable of divergent views and worthy of exposure.
Appearing on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Napolitano said he watched Thursday’s confirmation hearings for Victoria Nuland, the former State Department spokeswoman who has been tapped by President Barack Obama as assistant secretary of State.
Urgent: Should the NSA Spy on Americans? Vote Here Now”In my former forum, the questions would have been more pointed and she would have had to give precise, specific answers to the questions,” Napolitano said.Nuland’s name surfaced after the Benghazi attacks because she was the go-between for the State Department in talks between the CIA and White House over talking points that would be used with the press.

It means that no one is beneath the protection of the law and no one is absolved of the obligation to comply with it. The government may not make a person or a class of persons exempt from constitutional protections, as it did during slavery, nor may it make government officials exempt from complying with the law, as it does today. In the modern era, writes Judge Andrew Napolitano, presidents have rejected the value of the rule of law and instead followed their own political interests.

Andrew Napolitano, a former New Jersey Superior Court judge and current senior judicial analyst at Fox News, on Wednesday spoke out in defense of Jack Hunter, the aide to Sen. Rand Paul R-KY whose pro-secessionist past came to light on Tuesday. “Yesterday you saw some hawks, whose ideology is dying and whose worldview is being discredited every day, launch an attack on Senator Rand Paul by attacking one of his brilliant aides, Jack Hunter,” Napolitano wrote on a post published on his personal website. “Jack’s sin in their eyes was having spoken favorably of states’ rights, and negatively of Lincoln.
They can’t seem to recognize that states’ rights–even secession–does not equal racism; it constitutes a brake on the feds’ march to totalitarianism.”According to transcripts reviewed by The Washington Free Beacon, Hunter’s radio commentaries in the 2000s included assertions that Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth’s heart was “in the right place,” that white people are subject to a “racial double standard,” and that a “non-white majority America would simply cease to be America for reasons that are as numerous as they are obvious – whether we are supposed to mention them or not.

Napolitano: NSA Testimony on Surveillance Programs ‘Bogus’… “Former state court Judge Andrew Napolitano said on Tuesday that officials from the National Security Agency “answered questions professionally” in their testimony before Congress — “but I still think it’s bogus.””
Former state court Judge Andrew Napolitano said on Tuesday that officials from the National Security Agency “answered questions professionally” in their testimony before Congress — “but I still think it’s bogus.”
“There was none of this as we got from Attorney General [Eric] Holder and FBI Director [Robert] Mueller,” Napolitano told Neil Cavuto on Fox News.He was referring to comments from Army Gen. Keith Alexander, the NSA’s director, on the agency’s two surveillance programs: one that gathers U.S. phone records and another that is designed to track the use of U.S.-based Internet servers by foreigners with possible links to terrorism.
Judge Andrew Napolitano, writing at reason.com says:
When British soldiers were roaming the American countryside in the 1760s with lawful search warrants with which they had authorized themselves to enter the private homes of colonists in order to search for government-issued stamps, Thomas Paine wrote, “These are the times that try men’s souls.”
The soul-searching became a revolution in thinking about the relationship of government to individuals. That thinking led to casting off a king and writing a Constitution.
What offended the colonists when the soldiers came legally knocking was the violation of their natural right to privacy, their right to be left alone. We all have the need and right to be left alone.
We all know that we function more fully as human beings when no authority figure monitors us or compels us to ask for a permission slip. This right comes from within us, not from the government.
