Coming Soon to America – Fines and Arrests for Unapproved Speech?

by: Brent Smith

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Think about it. Is it not the next logical step to a complete shutdown of free and possibly controversial speech?

But that’s ridiculous – right?

No one is even suggesting such an absurd and over-the-top solution to curb offensive speech.

Sure, they’re have been many dozens of conservatives, particularly on College campuses, who have been protested, shouted down and even run off campus by leftist gangs.

But that’s where it ends. No one is even suggesting fining people who offend.

And if you’re thinking that no one in the country has been fined for such a thing, you’d be right. At least not yet. read more

Solomon Reports on FISA Abuse

As of yet, we don’t know who or how many people, and in what agencies Michael Horowitz passed on to William Barr and John “Bull” Durham for potential criminal prosecution, but it had better be some from the FBI – at the very least.

As John Solomon writes in his most recent report, two of Trump’s people have either gone to prison or are awaiting sentencing for making a single false statement. According to Horowitz, no less the nine false statements were given to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA), yet not a single head has rolled to date.

Something had better come of this , and sooner than later.

from John Solomon Reports:

Just how bad was the FBI’s Russia FISA? 51 violations and 9 false statements

To understand just how shoddy the FBI’s work was in securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant targeting the Trump campaign, you only need to read an obscure attachment to Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report. 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.

from the Federalist:

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

Jury Rules in Favor of Planned Parenthood

After the judge set pro-Planned Parenthood rules for the trial

What a stunner!! A Judge and jury in San Francisco ruled in favor of Planned Parenthood and against the Center for Medical Progress, the people who made the undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood employees and executives admitting to selling aborted baby parts.

from the Blaze:

Planned Parenthood awarded millions in damages after jury rules against David Daleiden, pro-life undercover videos

‘A dangerous precedent for citizen journalism’

A federal jury found that the Center for Medical Progress — an organization known for its release of undercover videos apparently capturing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of fetal tissue obtained through abortion procedures — caused substantial harm to Planned Parenthood and awarded the abortion group $870,000 in punitive damages plus hundreds of thousands more in compensatory damages. 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

The Left’s Bill of Wrongs

by: Brent Smith

The Atlantic wrote recently of, “an obscure New York City ordinance governing how firearms owners could—note the past tense—travel with their weapons.”

Under this law, “New Yorkers with a “premises” license had to keep their guns in their homes at all times, except when being taken to a licensed target-shooting facility for practice and training. But those facilities had to be in New York City itself. “Premises” licensees could not put their guns in their trunk and drive out of town for any reason—not to go to a gun range, not to compete in a shooting match, not to take the guns to a second home.”

A premises license? Well heck. If this isn’t unconstitutional, I frankly don’t know what is. Just where in the Second Amendment does it say anything about being forced to keep your guns at home at all times? Answer: NOWHERE!!

But as bad as this is, it is not my point.

The plantiffs, the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, as well as the NRA, sued all the way to the United States Supreme Court, and much to most peoples’ surprise, they agreed to review the case. read more

Upset Mother takes it Out on a 10 Year Old Kid

At a conference recently, Senator Ted Cruz said that “Universities Are Trying Hard To Raise A Generation Of Pansies.” Well, they’re not the only ones. Some parents are doing a bang up job of it two. But this time it sounds like the pansy isn’t the kid, but the Mom. And what goes hand in glove with pansydom? That’s right – litigation.

from WXYZ in Michigan: 

Canton 10-year-old charged with assault following schoolyard injury

The soon-to-be fifth grader is charged with Aggravated Assault, following a schoolyard game gone wrong.

“These kids are basically playing a game we all have played,” Lindley told 7 Action News. read more

Justice is Not Blind – It Sees Only What It Wants to See

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

We’ve all heard the saying that “Justice is Blind.” Thus the statue of Justitia, or lady Justice, blindfolded and holding the scale of equal justice under the law.

As nice a sentiment and goal that is, it is not reality. Rather it said that there are two systems of justice. One for the haves and one for the have-nots.

But even that’s not accurate, at least not anymore. Now we three systems, or tiers of justice. One for the have-nots, one for the haves and one reserved only for a politically well connected inner circle.

The have nots are the regular folks, like you and me. If we ever find ourselves on the wrong side of the law, regardless of the circumstance, we can expect zero perks and zero favors done on our behalf. We can expect the full measure of justice handed down as punishment for our transgressions, owing only to the compassion and mercy of a jury and/or judge.

Our only hope is that the judge and/or jury may find some sympathy for and pity on us, thus lessening our punishment slightly.

The haves are the next up in our three-tiered justice system. read more

Video Podcast – Lower Courts are Lawless on Illegal Immigration

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

For years, I and others have been railing at the courts for consistently overstepping their constitutional authority on any number of issues. It’s the reason we conservatives insist that we don’t need anymore frickin laws. I mean, what’s the difference how many laws Congress passes, if the courts aren’t going to follow them anyway. They don’t follow the old laws. Why would they follow any new ones?

David Horowitz wrote that, “The far-Left Democrats are trying to build momentum to abolish ICE and all enforcement of our sovereignty. Politically, it would take them 100 years to accomplish this goal, if ever. But the lower courts are doing it for them overnight with no pushback from the other branches of government.”

I discuss how and why this happens at that the only to solve it is for the two branches to pushback and nullify the lower courts rulings, injunctions, etc. read more
