EVER FEEL LIKE YOU DON’T MATTER? SHARE THIS SITE AND THIS PAGE WITH EVERYONE. STAMPING OUT IGNORANCE IS A REQUIREMENT OF SAVING THE CONSTITUTION & THE NATION! 

THIS IS THE PAGE THAT POLITICIANS WHO DISREGARD THEIR OATH TO SUPPORT OUR CONSTITUTION FEAR THE MOST. Why? Because it provides the truth about the key Supreme Court decisions (with commentary) that matter the most. They cannot continue to pull the wool over your eyes once you gain the knowledge. It is very important that you understand how these cases are presented to you.

Every decision posted here has been ELLionized, described as follows: First, if the Court discusses an issue in a case that does not involve the Constitution, that material is deleted. You will know when I have deleted any material when you see an ellipses (…). Second, if the Court takes three pages to say what can be said in a paragraph, you will find my paraphrase of that material within [brackets]. Third, I add commentary, questions, definitions, etc., in textboxes throughout. Everything you find in a textbox is me, Tad Armstrong, speaking. Fourth, all words that are not excised (…), paraphrased [  ] or found within a textbox (Armstrong) are the words of the Justices. I have never intentionally removed or altered the substance of what the Justices say. I have simply made it much easier for all to read. Fifth, important points are either highlighted in bold or underlined. This is all FREE! DOWNLOAD AND LEARN before it is too late!
