Justice Now Appears to be a One Way Street

by: Brent Smith

Some days it’s tough to be a conservative. It feels like we’re battling everyone over everything. But when the left owns the Executive and the Legislative branches of the federal government, it seems like we may not return to any kind of sanity any time soon, if ever. And it appears, more often than not, that we’re losing, or have lost, the federal judiciary, in all but a few instances.

We expect the other two branches to act like politicians – they are, after all. But when our courts also become overtly political, where is it we can go anymore for redress of our grievances? This may be a question that will go unanswered and I’m beginning to think it is purely rhetorical.

One by one, the courts are striking down conservative’s constitutionally affirmed First Amendment rights, while granting the same to the left. And thus it is, as Daniel Horowitz discusses the courts complete lack of concern regarding Parler, the free speech alternative to Twitter. read more

They’ll be Coming for You and Me Next

by: Brent Smith

Although this is a relatively long piece, as usual, the author Joy Pullmann, exhibits good incite and prescience for what lies ahead for us constitutional conservatives. It is well worth the read to the end.

After this last tumultuous year filled with pandemic scares and political malfeasance, we on the right, would sorely love to get back to our mantra of live and let live.

However, Ms. Pullmann fears, as do I and many others, that this will simply not be possible. The left will not allow it.

Democrats Are Framing Americans As Domestic Terrorists So They Can Do To Us What They Did To Trump In Spygate

Democrats have moved swiftly to use the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol mayhem to push for a frightening expansion of federal surveillance and police powers, openly smearing anyone who voted for Donald Trump as a potential terrorist.

Video Podcast – The Atlantic Accuses the Right of Everything the Left is Guilty of

by: Brent Smith

I discuss a recent Atlantic article entitled America’s Second-Worst Scenario. I didn’t read it ahead of time. It’s more of a read and react, initial take-away of this absurdity.

And is it ever. Literally everything I go over in the article is the left accusing those on the right of doing everything the left has done, is doing or planning to do.

Mitch to Ditch Removal of Trump

Well heck. I gotta give credit where credit is due, and frankly I don’t care what Mitch McConnell’s motivation is. Maybe he actually wants to do the right and constitutional thing, or maybe he’s just to lazy to come back to work. Who knows and who cares. But he’s made the right decision and should be applauded for it. Yay Mitch! How’s that?

from the Daily Wire:

BREAKING: McConnell Rejects Emergency Session On Impeachment, All But Killing Push To Oust Trump

WASHINGTON, DC - JANUARY 06: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) arrives at the U.S. Capitol and walks to his office on January 06, 2021 in Washington, DC. Congress held a joint session today to ratify President-elect Joe Biden's 306-232 Electoral College win over President Donald Trump. A group of Republican senators said they would reject the Electoral College votes of several states unless Congress appointed a commission to audit the election results.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has rejected a plan to reconvene the Senate in an emergency session to hold trial over an impeachment article against President Trump in the House.

McConnell press secretary Doug Andres confirmed a report that the Kentucky Republican would not sanction such a move on Wednesday. read more

WND Exclusive – Trump supporters are the ‘Rodney Dangerfield’ of America

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Scores of conservatives and I have said for many years that Republicans (not conservatives – they’re not the same) would rather lose elections and become the permanent minority party than have to throw-in with us trailer park, constitutional rabble.

And it’s true. The spineless, stand-for-nothing Republican Party really does believe that we true conservatives are an inferior breed. Not that we’re necessarily bad people, it’s that we have conviction, we stand for something, have principles, values and won’t compromise them at the drop of a hat. In other words, we just don’t get how things are done, etc.

Then I asked myself – what does this remind me of? read more

Video Podcast – Republicans Show their True Colors – Post Constitutionalism

by: Brent Smith

Let me start by saying I condemn the violence at the Capital the other. Because that’s what everyone expects us all to say.

There – everything’s all better now – right? It’s just stupid when you think about. Unless you’re a frickin moron, an ass or just sadistic, you would abhor and thus condemn the violence. DUH!

And what did the lamebrained losers accomplish? Nothing, unless the idiots who rioted are cut from the same cloth as the leftist thugs – they just wanted an excuse to riot.

But what of the spineless, elitist Republican political class and Deep State bureaucrats?

The showed their true color and it was a yellow stripe down their collective backs.

We – our nation – our republic, will pay a huge price for what has transpired, not over this past week, but has occurred and continues to occur – the persecution of an American president.

Welcome to post-constitutional America. read more

Speaking of Public Health Emergencies and Guns

by: Brent Smith

I’d like to provide a little analysis and perspective on a recent Blaze article I read a couple of days ago.

The article, which is chilling at best is entitled, “NY Democrat introduces bill allowing gov to ‘order the removal,’ detention of people with contagious diseases.”

New York’s Libertarian Party is speaking out against new legislation that would vastly expand the power of the state’s governor, permitting the detainment of individuals deemed to “pose an imminent and significant threat to the public health” by being a “suspected case, contact or carrier of a contagious disease.”

Well that sounds reasonable and just what springs to mind when one thinks of a free society – guilty until proven innocent. read more

Video Podcast – That’s not the COVID Vaccine – Liking Ron DeSantis

by: Brent Smith

Being former military myself, you know I have great respect for those who serve, in whatever capacity.

Drone pilot, office clerk, door kicker, whatever. You joined to serve.

But there are some things the military shouldn’t be doing and is best left to civilians.

This is one of them – administering the COVID vaccine to civilians, or not, as it were.

I’m becoming a fan of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. And what he said about getting the COVID vaccine certainly doesn’t hurt his standing among conservatives, or frankly anyone with a head and a heart. read more

Republican Anti-Gun Ohio Governors – First Kasich, Now DeWine

from Daniel Horowitz at the Blaze:

Gov. DeWine threatens to veto self-defense law as crime skyrockets in Ohio

Without the right to self-defense, there are no rights to life, liberty, or propertyStand Your Ground” Laws in Florida: What You Need to Know -

As violent crime reaches record levels in Ohio’s major cities, Gov. Mike DeWine (R) appears to be more concerned with using law enforcement against peaceful citizens and business owners. Now, he doesn’t want you to defend yourself when the criminals he released from prison or the Antifa mobs attack you on the streets. Will Ohio Republicans stand up to this Republican in name only? read more

A Perilous Precedent has been Set by the Supreme Court

by: Brent Smith

I agree 100% with the author, Jerome Michaels, regarding this topic. It does seem that our United States supreme Court has abandoned us, and more importantly, abandoned their sworn duty to uphold and defend the Constitution. Because of their non-decision regarding the 2020 election States vs States case, our nation may be irreparably harmed.

And all, in my opinion and his, to avoid making the right choice to at least hear what the plaintiff States had to say for themselves. But no, they punted instead, or more appropriately, as referees, just called the game entirely before the clock even ran out.

But hey, look at size of their building. Must be plenty of places to hide!

from the American Thinker:

A Supreme Court in Hiding is Dangerous for Our Country

In accordance with Art VI of the Constitution, every sitting Supreme Court justice has taken an oath swearing that he or she will “support this Constitution.” The Constitution the justices have sworn to protect is predicated upon free and fair elections so that the government reflects the will of the People. When the justices refuse to protect election integrity, they are violating their sworn oath and putting our constitutional republic at grave risk. read more
