Justice Scalia Issues A Remarkable Warning... his dissent from a portion of the Court's decision in Arizona vs. The United States.  The last two paragraphs (page 52 of the document) read as follows:

Arizona bears the brunt of the country’s illegal immigration problem. Its citizens feel themselves under siege by large numbers of illegal immigrants who invade their property, strain their social services, and even place their lives in jeopardy. Federal officials have been unable to remedy the problem, and indeed have recently shown that they are unwilling to do so....

 Arizona has moved to protect its sovereignty—not in contradiction of federal law, but in complete compliance with it. The laws under challenge here do not extend or revise federal immigration restrictions, but merely enforce those restrictions more effectively. If securing its territory in this fashion is not within the power of Arizona, we should cease referring to it as a sovereign State.

Related, from the New York Post:

Barack Obama doesn’t listen to anyone who disagrees with him. He sees his election as a blank check that carries near-absolute power and freedom from all restraint. Congress, the courts, voters, whole industries — if they are not with him, they are obstacles that must be crushed or circumvented.

Justice Scalia sees the game for what it is.  Alas, the media is unlikely to discuss or even report his remarks, despite the implications of his dissent.  No doubt they are aware that most of the electorate would likely agree with Scalia, and they fear bringing this jurist's thoughts to light would "angry up the blood" of the American people even further.

Can't have that. Not with an election on the horizon, ones whose outcome is far from certain.  For the media, it is Obama über alles.

Which echos the ethos of our president, of course.

Justice Scalia is aware of that, too....

Conservatives are spending a fortune and trying so hard to rid the world of liberalism, which is nothing more than veiled socialism/communism. However, most of their efforts are wasted because no matter what they do, they can NOT get their message out to the people. I can not help but feel that the very first priority that needs to be taken before positive changes can be made is we need to take back the liberal control of the media.

Surely there are enough rich conservatives out there that can buy up some of the media such as ABC or NBC and the NY Times and other rags. I mean, Bill Gates bought NBC, so it can be done.

Fox news and all the bloggers out there are still outnumbered and not enough. If we had more major news outlets reporting the stuff that is now only currently found on the internet or page 16 of section B of the newspaper, then we would have a much better chance of winning this fight.

We need more conservative investigative journalists out there. We need a majority of these newspapers to tell America what is really going on in their govt. Buy up these rags, fire all of the liberal hacks, and hire real journalists that tell the reat story...the truth.

This should be paramount and the first step in stopping socialism and communism from taking hold in our country. Communists, like roaches, work in the dark and flee when a light is shined on them and the world can see what they are really up to. As long as obama and his ilk have the media running cover for him, he can get away with almost anything. But, if conservative news becomes the majority, then the liberal press becomes marginalized. When America sees the truth of what is happening, they will work to get rid of this cancer that is destroying our once great country.

Conservatives need to take back America and the first step needs to be the major media.
