On Friday evening, just before midnight, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts issued an opinion out of nowhere. A pastor had sued to stop the state of California from shutting his church down, limiting services to just 25 percent of total capacity, and outlawing singing inside the church.

Anyone looking at this could see that it was a clear violation of the 1st Amendment. If people are allowed to stand shoulder to shoulder to someone in Walmart or Costco, then the state has no right to outlaw church services. There is no legitimate reason to restrict church services to 25 percent. That number is completely arbitrary. And considering one of the books in the Bible is literally called 'Psalms,' it is an obvious violation of the first amendment for the state to say that no one is allowed to sing in church.

Amazingly, however, the Supreme Court disagreed. John Roberts joined the Left wing on the bench and voted to uphold California's restrictions. Roberts argued that because the state also closed concert halls and movie theaters, then the restrictions placed on churches were constitutional. What a disgusting comparison...

But Roberts went further, explaining that the restrictions are constitutional because there is "no known cure, no effective treatment, and no vaccine" for the coronavirus. The CDC now estimates that over 99.7% of people who contract the coronavirus survive. To put it in perspective, the coronavirus is only twice as deadly as the common flu. Our heart goes out to anyone who has succumbed to the virus, but there is no asterisk in the Bill of Rights that allows the government to suspend our most fundamental rights whenever there is a super flu...

And yet, that is what the Supreme Court's latest ruling says. Cities and states are now allowed to suspend your God-given rights simply because there is a respiratory virus going around. And the ruling doesn't just apply to religious freedom... John Roberts' betrayal can now be used to help Leftists violate ALL of your rights!

Stop John Roberts from destroying your rights! Send your instant FaxBlast to Congress right now and DEMAND that they step in and use their 14th Amendment powers to protect the Bill of Rights from all domestic enemies!

And that is exactly what is happening. We saw the videos from New York last month where people protesting the coronavirus lockdowns were bodyslammed to the ground by police officers. Simply because they were outside peacefully protesting government policies. Under this latest Supreme Court order, that bodyslam would be constitutional because states would be allowed to suspend protest rights because of a virus. 

For over two months, gun stores in New York were ordered to close their doors. Many are still being forced to remain closed. The John Jovino Gun Shop -- the oldest gun store in New York -- just closed its doors for good. The coronavirus lockdown forced them into bankruptcy. Under the Supreme Court's new order, anti-gun politicians can close gun stores indefinitely whenever there is a new virus.

We've seen people ticketed (and fined) for sitting in their cars and watching the sunset. We have seen people fined for merely sitting in church parking lots and listening to sermons on the radio. We have seen leftist politicians release hardened criminals from jail and prison, only to imprison salon owners for daring to cut someone's hair.

Amazingly, the same local politicians who have declared that it is too dangerous for churches to re-open are now openly encouraging people to gather in large groups and protest in the streets. When churches tried to re-open, police were immediately sent to ticket and arrest the pastors. However, now that liberals are out protesting and rioting, those same police have been ordered to stand down...

Benjamin Franklin had it right. Anyone who sacrifices liberty in exchange for security deserves neither.

The Founding fathers went to great care to ensure that individual liberty would be protected in this Republic. Your rights are natural, pre-existing, and given to you by our Creator Himself. You don't get your rights from the Constitution. The Bill of Rights was ratified to make sure that government can never violate your most fundamental rights.

But this one ruling tosses that all out the window. These unelected judges just determined that the Bill of Rights can be tossed out the window whenever there is a super flu...

Luckily, previous generations foresaw that this could happen. The 14th Amendment was ratified in 1868, not only to convey citizenship and full rights to freed slaves after the Civil War, but also to create a failsafe for Congress to act whenever cities or states are caught violating Americans' rights.

The amendment is clear: "No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property..."

Article 5 of the amendment confirms that "The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article."

If this Supreme Court ruling is allowed to stand, it will have disastrous consequences. But it doesn't have to be this way. You have the power to overturn this unconstitutional decision, but only if you rise up and FORCE Congress to take action!

Stop John Roberts from destroying your rights! Send your instant FaxBlast to Congress right now and DEMAND that they step in and use their 14th Amendment powers to protect the Bill of Rights from all domestic enemies!

Our goal today is large. We want to bombard Congressional offices, both in DC and in their home districts, with one million FaxBlasts demanding that they honor their oath and protect Americans' rights against this disgusting judicial activism.

The 14th Amendment gives Congress the power to intervene and protect Americans' rights. Each Congressman and Senator swore an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. Now is the time to force them to honor this oath. But again, it is up to YOU to hold their feet to the fire and force them to act!

Roberts' opinion now gives lower activist judges the green light to restrict Americans' rights even more. And we are already seeing Leftist judges rushing to use this outrageous Supreme Court decision in their own orders.

You can put a stop to this, but the window of opportunity is closing fast!

Stop John Roberts from destroying your rights! Send your urgent FaxBlast to Congress right now and DEMAND that they step in and use their 14th Amendment powers to protect the Bill of Rights from all domestic enemies!

Stop this madness before it is too late!
