The PJ Tatler

To hear the media tell the story, the left won big and the right lost big in the U.S. Supreme Court’s 7-2 decision to strike down part of Arizona’s voter-registration law Monday.

But PJ legal editor Christian Adams says the reverse is true: The right won big and the left lost. He also argues that Justice Antonin Scalia used the case to undermine the left’s longstanding campaign to use federal pre-emption to gut states’ ability to create and enforce election law.

Adams made his convincing case on The Mike Huckabee Show. Listen to the interview here.

He also spells out how the right won the Arizona case in this piece for PJ Media.

Monday's Supreme Court ruling renders the Federal voter registration form illegal in Arizona for any purpose other than registration for Congressional elections, since:

1. Arizona Prop. 200 disallows the use of a voter registration form that does not require proof of citizenship.

2. Prop. 200 is a validly enacted law that must be given full effect to the extent that it is not invalid or pre-empted.

3. Congress, through the "Motor Voter" act, has required that all states accept the Federal form (which does not require proof of citizenship and cannot be unilaterally altered by any state) for Congressional elections.

4. The Supreme Court has held that Motor Voter pre-empts Prop. 200.

The result is that, even though Arizona MUST accept the Federal form for registration for Congressional elections, it CANNOT accept it for any other type of election, since it does not require the proof of citizenship mandated by Prop. 200.

Everybody knows by now that the main stream media is an agency of the Obama Administration and arm of the Democrat/Progressive Party.
And running headlines like:
"SCOTUS strikes down citizenship provision in Arizona’s voter registration law", makes it easy for the "low information constituent" to form an opinion.

I read this article looking for the detailed breakdown of "the miracle" that Scalia performed.................
Is this site trying to appeal to the "low information constituent"?
I'm sure they will appreciate all the pop-up ads and extra email commercials they get from signing up.
And for in depth breakdown and discourse on this SCOTUS decision, there is The Heritage Foundation.
See you there.
