WND Exclusive – Take a toke, man – your town needs the tax money

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

There are some odd things going on in our country lately.

Yes, I know that’s a silly open-ended statement and could refer to just about anything these days. But I’m talking about the seeming disconnect between states and the federal government. Or more specifically, the disconnect between state and federal laws.

In this case, the disconnect between federal marijuana laws and that of the states.

Marijuana is considered an illegal substance by the feds, yet at least 11 states have legalized its purchase and consumption – either strictly medically and/or for recreational use.

The United States Constitution is unmistakably clear concerning the relationship of federal and state law.

Deplorable has a New Meaning – And it’s Nancy Pelosi

by: Brent Smith

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Don’tcha just love the flags?

Remember when Hillary Clinton described us as “deplorables?”

Well there’s a new definition, and it describes the impeachment speech that Nancy Pelosi gave the other day. There was nothing quite as deplorable as listening to 5 minutes and 42 seconds of disingenuous faux-patriotism from a San Francisco leftist who, like her fellow leftists would, if they could, shred the Constitution.

It was the most despicable display I’ve seen since the last time Adam Schiff opened his mouth. So really – not so long ago.

Up to the point of the phony Trump impeachment, we never heard a single democrat quoting the founding fathers or our founding documents. Until recently, not a single leftist has mentioned that the United States is in fact a Republic, and not a democracy. However Pelosi intentionally intermingled the two terms as if they are synonymous.

She began by describing our revolution and our want to break free from an oppressive King, King George III, and “the King’s refusal to follow rightfully passed laws.” This, of course, is also meant to describe president Trump. read more

The War on the Electoral College has Begun – Again

As you read the following post, trying to keep up with the warped logic of the democrats – remember one thing. And it’s the one thing I never hear Republicans or conservatives (not always one and the same) argue. And that is, except for two States, the candidate who wins each State’s Electoral College must first win that State’s popular vote. Every State but two is winner take all.

What the left is doing is purposely muddying the water to make it appear that the democrat is being robbed of the victory the people granted him or her. As if their vote doesn’t count. But we know it does count, as much as it ever did.  The dems don’t just want a popular vote election. What they want is what the founders warned of – a cumulative popular vote election, where a few States with the largest concentrations of population reside, and thus sway the election.

Warren: I’ll Be ‘Last American President Elected By The Electoral College’

Progressives like Warren want to abolish the Electoral College because they want to get rid of our constitutional system entirely

On Monday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren reiterated her view that the Electoral College should be abolished and U.S. presidents should be elected by popular vote. “My goal is to get elected—but I plan to be the last American president to be elected by the Electoral College. I want my second term to be elected by direct vote,” she tweeted.

In the accompanying video clip, she said, “Call me old fashioned, but I think the person who gets the most votes should win.”

Warren has a curious idea of what counts as “old fashioned,” since her position on the Electoral College puts her at odds with the decidedly old fashioned Founding Fathers, who rightly worried about what James Madison called the “tyranny of the majority.”

Democrats are apparently unbothered by this possibility, not least because they believe they’ve secured a permanent majority and, if they could just seize power, they would govern as benign rulers. What’s standing in their way is nothing less than our constitutional system.

 

That’s why you see Democrats coming out against not just the Electoral College but also the Senate and the Supreme Court. Why should Wyoming or Iowa have two votes in the Senate, so the thinking goes, when so few people live there? Why should five Supreme Court justices decide contentious questions about, say, gun rights? (Expect to hear howls of protest from the left if the gun rights case the justices heard on Monday, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. City of New York, doesn’t go their way.)

It’s not just Warren. According to one poll earlier this year, 60 percent of Democratic voters support abolishing the Electoral College, and much of the mainstream media seems to agree. After the 2016 election, The New York Times attacked the Electoral College as an “antiquated mechanism,” Time magazine published an article arguing the Electoral College was designed to protect slavery, and E. J. Dionne Jr. of The Washington Post compared it to a game of chance in a casino.

Will the Trial of the Century Actually Take Place?

by: Brent Smith

No Audio Version

When the democrat hacks in the House of Representatives get around to fabricating whatever charges of impeachment against the president, it of course then goes on to the Senate to be tried.

To recap, the House’s only responsibility is to bring, or in this case makeup charges, or Articles of Impeachment – similar to an indictment.

Then it moves to the Senate for trial and judgment, and is overseen by supreme Court Chief Justice, John “ObamaCare” Roberts.

Regardless of what the charges are, anyone who has paid attention to the actual facts, and watched Glenn Beck’s Ukraine timeline videos, Part OnePart TwoPart Three, understands that whatever the charges leveled against the president, all will be bogus – completely fabricated. Just like Adam Schiff’s soliloquy at the hearing in September.

Recall he made people believe he was reading directly from the transcript of the phone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president. Of course he made it up. But his purpose was just to advance a narrative of guilt, knowing that most low-information citizens wouldn’t read the transcript or even inquire about it. And, for the most part, he got away with it, as spineless and/or ignorant republicans, seated right next to him, never called him on it until days later. read more

Podcast – The Deep State Department, Impeachment and the Founders

by: Brent Smith

Today I’ll discuss what I’ve coined the “Deep State” Department and how it is akin, as Glenn Beck astutely describes, as Hydra, form the Marvel movies. They are, we discovering, remarkably similar, except for all the death ships and such.

In mine and others’ opinion, that’s really what’s this latest attempt at impeachment and removal of president Trump is really about – teaching our elected officials that the deep state actually runs the show and don’t try to usurp their power, or pay the price for doing so.

I also discuss Marie Yovanovitch “feelings” testimony, Liz Cheney and the founders original intent and language of the impeachment clause in the Constitution. read more

Video Podcast – Of Impeachment Lessons Learned and Warnings

by: Brent Smith

Most of us have heard and know of Alexis de Tocqueville, the famous French philosopher and political theorist and author of “Democracy in America.”

During his time in America, in the 1830s, he made a lot of observations about our country.

Here are just two:

“There are many men of principle in both parties in America, but there is no party of principle, ” and in 1835 he said: “A decline of public morals in the United States will probably be marked by the abuse of the power of impeachment as a means of crushing political adversaries or ejecting them from office.”

And that’s we stand right now, and what I’ll be discussing. read more

It’s Looking like Michael Flynn was Railroaded by the FBI

For years, possibly even decades, many of us constitutionalists have insisted that our founding fathers were prescient, almost to the point of clairvoyance. It seems that whatever issues befall our nation, the founders already accounted for when they crafted the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Yet, I’m starting to wonder if even they could’ve predicted the depths of depravity our government has sunk to over the last few years.

The lengths the Deep State, entrenched bureaucracy, has so far gone through to attempt to remove a duly elected President of the United States is staggering. It’s something never seen in our history and if it were someday to be made into a movie, it would likely be impossible to follow, given how many characters are involved and the myriad of plot twists.

And for what? Because the leftists in our government and media, after three years, still cannot comes to grips with Donald Trump as president.

It’s like Citizen Kane on the most powerful steroid imaginable. I can see Adam Schiff, lying on his death bed someday. With his last breath, not uttering “Rosebud,” as did Kane, but “Trump.” Arthur Conan Doyle couldn’t dream up a more intricate plot line. read more

Video Podcast – Impeach Trump Poll is Garbage – More California Gun Laws

by: Brent Smith

Fox News Poll is Crap

I explain why the Fox News poll that shows 51% of respondents wish to impeach and remove Trump is absolute crap.

Polls can be created to tell practically any story. Most polls these days don’t take the pulse of the American electorate. They are specifically designed to sway public opinion.

And the Latest Fox News Poll does just that – and is complete garbage.

 

The governor of California signs seven new anti-gun bills into State law

Within these new laws is the slippery slope we on the right have been warning of regarding the Second Amendment.

Start off with the framework – a Red Flag law. After that’s on the book, leftists are free to add-on. And boy do they ever.

With these laws, a whole swath of our population has had its constitutional rights stripped. And scant few are discussing it.

Between anti-gun laws and the impeach Trump cries, we are living a constitutional crisis! read more

The Democrats and Faux-Impeachment

by: Brent Smith

Scroll Down for Audio Version

If they have their way, the democrats, I mean the professional political class, will never have to bring this Trump impeachment nonsense to a vote, because it’s not now and never was about impeachment.

Oh sure, if they could impeach and somehow remove Trump from office, that would be the cherry on top of the sundae, but the dems, at least the ones in senior leadership, the ones in the know and who likely concocted this whole scheme, are only doing this really for the issue. They believe it’s a win-win. Actually it’s a win-win-win.

First they get to clog up the system, so that no more of Trump’s agenda can be advanced – you know, because democrats take impeachment soooooo seriously, even faux-impeachment. Second, from a democrat point-of-view, they get a made for TV election year issue to run on. And third, no democrat has to be accountable, for an “official” vote was never cast in House, as is the rule.

It’s why those in the Trump administration who received notification letters to appear before the House committee can just refuse to do so without consequence.

All the Trump people have thumbed their noses at Schiff and the House democrats – refusing to testify. read more

Anti-Gun MoveOn.org Supports a Shooter

The following are excerpts from a MoveOn.org email I recently received. Yes, I receive MoveOn email alerts. It’s handy to get the pulse of the radical left.

Dear MoveOn member,

My name is Cyntoia Brown-Long. You may have heard my name on TV, social media, or if you’re one of the over 636,000 MoveOn members who signed a petition calling for my release from prison. But I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you my story myself and to say thank you.

I am a survivor of child sex trafficking. In 2004, at age 16, I was sentenced to a lifetime in prison for shooting one of my abusers in self-defense.

According to Wikipedia, “Brown said that Allen had paid her $150 to have sex with him, and that she feared for her life during their encounter, leading her to shoot him. Prosecutors argued that Brown killed Allen in order to rob him. Brown was found guilty and sentenced to 51 years to life. After renewed interest in her case in 2017, Governor Bill Haslam of Tennessee commuted her original sentence to 15 years.”

She was released from prison in August, 2019. read more
