WND Exclusive – A New Year – Time to Reintroduce the 10 Tenets of Conservatism

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Regarding socialism, it wasn’t that long ago, only about 10 years, that Democrats were singing a different tune. In reaction to a 2009 Newsweek cover entitled, “We Are All Socialists Now,” then Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, D-N.H., at a town hall meeting in 2010, exclaimed, “I don’t think anybody in this country believes in socialism. I don’t know ’em, and I don’t hang out with ’em, but maybe you do.”

You can’t hardly say that anymore. Socialism/communism/leftism is on the rise, especially among younger voters. A Fox News poll from just a couple of weeks ago “finds 31 percent of voters view socialism favorably, up 6 percentage points since February (the first time the question was asked).”

This is lunacy, of course. But the poll is likely fairly accurate. So what can be done?

In the past, I and many other conservatives have insisted that we on the right must educate the electorate. But this requires us to hold their attention long enough to do so.

Sadly, that’s getting increasingly difficult. So what’s the alternative? Conservatism isn’t really conducive to sound bites and slogans. read more

Bill of Rights: 9 Apply to the Individual, but 1 Does Not?

by: Brent Smith

No Audio Version

It’s dawned on me what should be the most obvious argument for the individual right to “keep and bear arms.”

The primary purpose of the 10 Amendments that form the Bill of Rights is to protect the natural rights of the individual from an encroaching federal government function. The only way someone would not know this is if they have not read them.

In fact, each of the Bill of Right’s 10 Amendments, of which there were originally 17, states this by use of the words person, people, owner, or accused. The only two that do not expressly state the individual are the 7th and 8th. They do however use inference to make the point that both pertain to the individual.

So when a leftist begins to spout off about the Second Amendment, that it applies only to militias, we must remind of them of this. If necessary, review each of the 10 and it will become clear that the founders did not intend for nine of the 10 to pertain primarily to the individual and yet single out just the Second as not having any individual protection component. It defies logic. But then so does liberalism. read more

Podcast – Skipping School to Protest – T-Shirt Gets Kid Suspended

by: Brent Smith

A Virginia School District Allows Kids to Miss School So They Can Protest Trump

Fairfax County Public Schools system is one of the nation’s largest with approximately 188,000 students.

They will allow a student to miss one day a year for “activism,” like protesting Trump. How special.

And this is how it always starts. It’s only one day a year – what’s the big deal!

Kid Finally Gets to wear Trump T-shirt to school

An Oregon public school suspended a kid because his Trump t-shirt was a threat to the “Hispanic” student body.

But a District court judge stepped in and reminded the leftist academics of the young man’s free speech rights.

A win for the Constitution and free speech. read more

Podcast – Bernie Doesn’t Hate Billionaires – LA School Wellness Centers

by: Brent Smith

Bernie Sanders has a mini-commercial on YouTube where he says elections have been hijacked by billionaires. Of course he’s talking about Trump.

Bernie has been quoted saying he doesn’t think billionaires should even exist. At least all but one – George Soros.

I discuss Bernie and George and other leftist billionaires who fund everything – including Bernie.

 

LA County School District is teaming up with Planned Parenthood to install 50 abortion centers in their high schools.

Oh they’re not calling them abortion clinics and say they won’t provide that service. Not right away anyway.

I discuss what their plan actually is, because it’s the same as every other leftist program. Start small and then grow it after it’s firmly in place and entrenched. read more

Warren may be Giving Trump a Means to Increase his Minority Support

from Human Events: 

Elizabeth Warren and the Democrats Choose Teacher Unions over Black Families

Republicans can win over black voters by supporting charter schools

Recently, Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren unveiled her plan to revitalize America’s K-12 education system. The problem? Her proposal replicates the exact policy model that precipitated American education’s historical decline.

It begins pretty simply: boost local education by funneling billions of dollars of funding from the federal level to states. The added kicker, however, is that Warren proposes to eliminate the Federal Charter School Program—a program created to incentivize new charter schools and support high-performance schools already in existence.

Warren’s proposal reflects the ever-widening disconnect between the Democratic Party and its crucial African American voting base. The data is irrefutable: black voters have consistently shown support for alternatives to public schools for over the past two decades. And this makes sense, given how failing public schools disproportionately affect minority communities. read more

Audio Article – Beto’s Gun Grab – Hawaii Coach Stands His Ground – Bike Lanes

by: Brent Smith

Honesty About Gun Confiscation

Joy-less Behar of the View lamented that Beto O’Rourke was too honest about his want to take everyone’s guns away. She said, “They should not tell everything they’re going to do. If you are going to take people’s guns away, wait until you get elected and then take them away. Don’t tell them ahead of time.”

I discuss her and all democrat’s dishonesty.

 

Coach in Hawaii Won’t Allow Boy to Join Girls Team

A high school volleyball coach in Hawaii doesn’t want a boy who thinks he’s a girl on his team – and oddly enough, the school is so far backing him up.

 

Small City Bike Lanes

My democrat-controlled city has installed bikes which not a single soul is using and I’m none-too-happy about it. read more

Cultural Appropriation vs Reality

After watching the following Prager University video, you should come away with one thing stark realization – the “Woke” stand against cultural appropriation is all bull crap.

Will Witt is out and about, again on another college campus – this time adorned is his Halloween attire – a Chinese coolie outfit. Perpetually offended students hurled f-bombs and other expletives at Will as they demonstrated their sensitivity superiority.

Then Will, wearing the same outfit, bravely ventured into the heart of Chinatown and discovered something odd. Not a single soul was the least bit offended and many said they liked the outfit. Fascinating.

Maybe the Chinese in Chinatown are just too stupid to know they are being wrongly appropriated, or even know what it means, because they have a life.

Enjoy the video: read more

Podcast – More College Censorship – Trangendering is Child Abuse

by: Brent Smith

More College Censorship
Censorship is alive and well on college campuses. So says the College fix, and anyone with eyes can see they’re right.

This time a conservative group had their Halloween display taken down after only being up for several hours last week. Of course no one knows anything about, but the Young Americans for Freedom club vows to get to the bottom of it.

By the way – they’re display were gravestones with the words “Socialism Kills” on them.

Trangendering is Child Abuse
Most have heard of the tragic story of the 7 year old Texas boy whose mother wants to change into a girl. And worse is a jury, in Texas no less, said that would fine.

Luckily a Judge overturned the jury and put a stay on the case, giving rights back to both parents. The father objects. What a Puritan – right.

Simply put, this mother should be locked up for child abuse. read more

$2.4 Million Wasted on a Public School Bathroom

What’s the one thing that all public school systems have in common? That’s right – they’re always crying poverty. no matter how much money we taxpayers spend on public education, it’s just never enough. Unfortunately, most times the money is not spent educating our kids. It’s wasted on palatial buildings and politically correct nonsense that won’t help the children learn a thing.

Yet we still keep electing the same idiots to run our public schools and flush the taxpayer’s money down the drain.

So, in a way, we only have ourselves to blame – both for electing them and allowing them to possibly permanently damage our kids.

Case in point from the Blaze:

A Pennsylvania school district is set to drop a hefty sum on a brand-new gender-neutral changing facility for students, according WTXF-TV.

The station reported that Garden Spot High School in New Holland will eliminate traditional boys and girls locker rooms with the $2.4 million project. Renovations are expected to be completed by December 2020. read more

WND Exclusive – How Trump can help more people dump the Democrats

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

A guy called into Rush Limbaugh this past Tuesday. He was a retired college professor who is done with the Democrats. He voted Democrat his entire life until 2016 when he pulled the lever for Trump.

Basically, he wised up to the lies of the Democratic Party and became a conservative. And unlike some Republicans, he liked the way Trump fought back against the left and threw it right back at them.

He said he was definitely done with the lying Democrats, but he also voiced his frustration with Trump, which Rush didn’t seem to understand. Well, I for one understood exactly what the professor meant, because it’s the same way many conservatives feel. read more
