The year 2022 is turning out to be what has been called in Latin "annus mīrābilis" or "miracle year", a year in which great strides have been made in advancing our understanding of important things. 1666 was one of those years, when "Isaac Newton, aged 23, made revolutionary inventions and discoveries in calculus, motion, optics and gravitation" all in that single year.

Conservatives, "originalists" and structural constitutionalists will shout Huzzah! reflecting upon this year for the watershed advancements our Supreme Court has made in deciding three cases (one after a 50-year struggle) and affirming our Constitutional truths.

First, on a 6-3 decision, the Court ruled that it has no standing to decide issues of abortion. "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, [here abortion] nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people". (10th Amendment) The late S.C. Justice Antonin Scalia is surely smiling on this decision. He believed our Constitution should be interpreted from its words alone, not by what judges believe those words should say. That court has now held there is no longer a federal constitutional right to abortion.

The second "mirabilis" case affirmed our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms outside the home. Again, the Court affirms the plain language of the Amendment.

The Supreme Court ruled the Constitution establishes a right to carry a gun outside the home, issuing a major decision on the meaning of the Second Amendment of our Constitution. New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen. The Court said the authority of the Second Amendment is in no way inferior to that of the First Amendment. It establishes a RIGHT of the people to keep and bear Arms, [which]shall not be infringed.

The third "mirabilis" Supreme Court decision of the year pertains to prayer in school. "Joe Kennedy, a high school football coach from Washington and a Christian, was fired for refusing to stop kneeling in prayer after games. Today, I applaud the U.S. Supreme Court for affirming our First Amendment right to freely practice religion. Today's judicious ruling is a great victory for Americans of all faiths." (Texas, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R).

Pro-Life believers fought for 50 years to correct the bastard decision of Roe v. Wade, now recognized as one of the worst decisions in American judicial history - right down there with Dred Scott (1857). Why? Primarily because during the time between Roe (1973) and this year when the majority opinion, written by Justice Samuel Alito, stated: "the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey [Planned Parenthood v. Casey, 1992] are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," - SIXTY MILLION (60,000,000) innocent, defenseless babies waiting to be born have been butchered alive. Actually, this is only a small part of this super Holocaust, with abortion drugs killing untold millions more. The ancient Greeks understood the evil of this practice and obliged physicians to swear an oath of ethics (Hippocratic Oath) "... Nor shall any man’s entreaty prevail upon me to administer poison to anyone; neither will I counsel any man to do so. Moreover, I will give no sort of medicine to any pregnant woman, with a view to destroy the child."

I've run over my time and space.

Donald Trump gave us Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett, who have given new life to millions of children now serenely awaiting birth into our world. This is truly a Miracle Year.
