Is the Bill of Rights Absolute?

by: Brent Smith

Scroll Down for Audio Version

When speaking about the Second Amendment, Lunchbox Joe Biden recently said that “no amendment is absolute.”

Well Lunchbox. If you mean that amendments are not perfect and not beyond change – then you’re right. But if Joe, or whoever wrote what Joe was reading, means that amendments can just be restricted or limited by a single executive’s edict, by legislative action, or just ignored all together, he is dead wrong.

And we all know what he means. It’s the latter, not the former. read more

We Must Adhere to America’s Rulebook

by: Brent Smith

What does it mean when we on the right describe ourselves as conservatives? What is it that we are trying so hard to save, preserve or prevent the loss of – which is what to conserve means.

Those on the left would say we wish to conserve the days of slavery and Jim Crow – or maybe the white-old days of the 1950s before the Civil Rights movement.

Despite the fact that all those bad times were born of the left in this country, we conservatives wish to reestablish and conserve America’s original set of governing rules.

Our nation was founded on a set of ideals – the Declaration of Independence, and rules – the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Yet Americans today seem only to care, and demand absolute adherence to some rules, while all but ignoring others. read more

WND Exclusive – Is there still a right to bear the Constitution?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Many Americans suffer from a common phobia. No, it’s not the very reasonable fear we are living now, of Democrats running the country. That’s not a phobia, for its not irrational.

No, they suffer from an irrational fear of guns. Guns are not inherently scary. They are just a tool – like a screwdriver or a leaf blower. You’ve heard the saying, the right tool for the right job. You wouldn’t use a gun to blow the leaves around your yard and thus you wouldn’t use a leaf blower to defend yourself. You could try, but I’ll bet it won’t go well.

Yet over the years more and more citizens have been purposely conditioned to think guns are scary “weapons of war.” On a weekly basis, we hear of one after another proposed piece of gun-curtailing legislation coming from the left. read more

Is America Still the Best Mankind has to Offer?

by: Brent Smith

Is America still the place of our founder’s vision? Is it still the home of the ideals of freedom, liberty, and God-given inalienable rights?

And in case anyone needs a refresher on what inalienable rights mean; they are rights which are incapable of being denied or taken away. Nor can they be even temporarily rescinded or abridged – you know – for our safety and security.

I’ve been pondering this question for a little while now, but only tangentially. I haven’t really delved into it until recently hearing Steve Deace of the Blaze mention it.

Many of us, for probably most or all of our adult lives, have exclaimed how much we love America, and how proud we are to be American. Count me as one of them. I’ve been as patriotic as any.

But recently I’ve begun to question my resolve, my continued insistence of just how proud I am. read more

WND Exclusive – A Brief History of the Insidious Income Tax

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

As we are knee-deep in tax season, I thought it might be useful to explain why Americans aren’t rioting over the size of the ever-ballooning national debt and yearly federal budget deficit – how Washington is taxing and spending us into oblivion and yet we just don’t seem to care.

One of the reasons is surely that many Americans don’t feel they have skin in the game. read more

Video Podcast – Advancing of the Speech Police

by: Brent Smith

Today I discuss a bill that is being proposed in Kentucky, by a Republican, which will make it a crime, a Class B misdemeanor, if they (protesters or rioters), “accost, insult, taunt, or challenge a law enforcement officer with offensive or derisive words, or by gestures or other physical contact, that would have a direct tendency to provoke a violent response from the perspective of a reasonable and prudent person.”

Well isn’t that vague and ridiculous, lumping in words with violent acts. How convenient. And isn’t it always the way. Bad policy always begins with well-meaning Republicans, unable to comprehend the slippery slope they put us on, as not-well-meaning leftists eventually get a hold of it. read more

Oklahoma Introduces itself to the 10th Amendment

by: Brent Smith

Fancy that. One (maybe two – North Dakota) out of 50 States has the intelligence and the courage to actually follow the rules.

The other 49 (48) are unaware of what Oklahoma is proposing, complete ignoramuses, going to take a wait-and-see approach, or don’t give a crap what the rule book says. They’re going to do whatever they want and are content to let the feds run roughshod over them, providing they’re working toward the same tyrannical ends.

The rule book being the United States Constitution. It is technically still the rule book, right?

The 10th Amendment is the cornerstone of federalism. It reads as follows: read more

Thank you Wokepublicans for Jumping Ship

by: Brent Smith

Isn’t it nice to see so many Republican rats fleeing a Sinking Ship? And I’m not being facetious. I really am thankful.

There’s only one problem though. The ship isn’t sinking. It’s listing a little, but that’s okay.

The Trump anti-woke, real-America freedom ship is only a half mile from port and will soon set in where it will be transferred to dry dock to be refitted and will re-launch at a later date.

What will its assigned mission be? As yet, no one knows. But whatever it is, it will have a profound effect on the political landscape. read more

Weapon Wednesday – Article V Convention of States: Backstop against Runaway Statism

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

A few years ago, former South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint said: “The United States is a terminal patient on an unsustainable course. Calling an Article V Convention of States would be too risky not to attempt.”

He is more right today than even then.

The left has always been opposed to a Convention of States (COS), provided for in Article V of the U.S. Constitution, but over the last several years, as the COS movement has grown in popularity, conservatives too have come out against it. read more

Video Podcast – Why the Democrats are Holding an Impeachment Trial

By: Brent Smith

What the democrats are doing is clearly anti-constitutional, as it not possible to impeach and remove from public office a private citizen.

But that isn’t stopping the dems and some equally wicked Republicans.

I explain what their up to and why they are really attempting the retroactive impeachment trial. read more
