WASHINGTON, March 28, 2015 – The people taking up space at the Boulder County district attorney’s office appear to suffer from a folded paracingulate sulcus. The PCS, as University of Cambridge researchers call it, is the front part of the brain that when folded might explain why some people can’t tell “whether an event was imagined or actually occurred.”
A study published by Cambridge scientists in last October’s Journal of Neuroscience claims this brain abnormality, which “is present in roughly half of the normal population,” may trigger the development of schizophrenia.
Boulder, Colo., District Attorney Stan Garnett appears to have a schizophrenic understanding of the law. At a press conference on Friday, Garnett said that murder charges will not be filed against Dynel Lane.
You may recall that Lane is accused of luring the seven-month-pregnant Michelle Wilkins, 26, to her home, beating her and cutting the unborn infant from Wilkins’ body.
“The issues involving an unborn child are complicated under Colorado law,” District Attorney Garnett told the press. “In most circumstances, if a child was not actually born alive, then homicide charges are not possible.”
Anyone familiar with American history might see a striking similarity between Garnett’s understanding of the law and that of U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, whose notorious majority opinion in the 1857 Dred Scott vs. Sanford ruling said:
“In the opinion of the court, the legislation and histories of the times, and the language used in the Declaration of Independence, show, that neither the class of persons who had been imported as slaves, nor their descendants, whether they had become free or not, were then acknowledged as a part of the people, nor intended to be included in the general words used in that memorable instrument…They had for more than a century before been regarded as beings of an inferior order… in social or political relations; and so far inferior, that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect; and that the negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit.”
The U.S. Supreme Court, having usurped the power as the Constitution’s preeminent interpreter, declared African-Americans nonpersons before the law and society.
In 1973, Chief Justice Earl Warren’s court did the same for the unborn by hinging life, liberty and happiness upon the rubric of “fetal viability” outside the mother’s womb, as Justice Taney once hinged skin pigmentation. Thus a segment of American society was declared “beings of an inferior order… in social or political relations.”
The promoters of this particular evil simply diminish their helpless victims by categorizing them “unviable tissue mass.” Thus denied their humanity in the site of the law and society, the nonpersons can be liquidated and harvested for stem cell research.
Recently, Sen. Ted Cruz was roundly criticized in the secular media for telling an audience at Liberty University (the largest Christian college in the world) that the most profound idea to come out of the American Revolution was that “our rights don’t come from man. They come from God Almighty” and that the “purpose of the Constitution, as Thomas Jefferson put it, is to serve as chains to bind the mischief of government.”
YahooNews political reporter Meredith Shiner tweeted, “Bizarre to talk about how rights are God-made and not man-made in your speech announcing a POTUS bid? When Constitution was man-made?”
Shiner’s ignorance of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution (inseparable one from the other) is startling and shows why the secular media’s scorn for Cruz’s “extremism” stems from its profound disagreement with the nation’s founders concerning the source of our rights.
Thomas Jefferson, a deist, was no fan of organized religion, stating, “The truth is that the greatest enemies to the doctrines of Jesus are those calling themselves the expositors of them, who have perverted them for the structure of a system of fancy absolutely incomprehensible, and without any foundation in his genuine words. And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the Supreme Being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter.”
What, then, explains his declaration of “self-evident” truths in proclaiming “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness; That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed”?
An answer can be found in the Old Testament book of Numbers: “God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?”
Jefferson believed our natural rights to be inseparable from our humanity; that they are “unalienable,” inviolable, absolute, sacrosanct, incapable of being taken from us; as certain, reliable and uncompromising as Jehovah.
And so, a consistent, incorruptible God seemed the logical and ever-fixed point upon which to anchor America’s moral system under whose sway an individual has “a right to his own person, which includes the liberty of moving and using it at his own will. This is what is called personal liberty, and is given him by the author of nature.”
Colorado’s Dynel Lane alleged act, that of ripping the unborn child from the womb of its mother, Michelle Wilkins, took Roe vs. Wade’s “right to choose” very seriously, if twistedly. But Colorado won’t prosecute a person, deranged or otherwise, for murder when the law does not recognize the victim as a living, breathing person.
Just in passing, when David Ridley, husband of Dynel Lane, came home to find his wife covered in blood, he told police “he found the baby, saw her take a breath, wrapped her in a towel and drove the baby and Lane to the emergency room,” the Colorado Daily reported.
The celebrated Thomas Jefferson struggled to stay alive for July 4, 1826, “that he might breathe the air of the fiftieth anniversary” of America’s founding.
Dynel Lane’s alleged victim, the nonperson some may call a baby girl, breathed her last breath at Longmont United Hospital, a stateless refugee denied justice and her God-given right to life and liberty.
