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.

WND Exclusive – Who cares about Hunter Biden’s strip-club escapades?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

This is a news story? Hunter Biden apparently smoked crack? And did so in a strip club? How quintessentially American.

Wow! How are we expected to react to this “breaking” news? “We’ve got ‘im now,” or some such nonsense? Are we supposed to revel in someone else’s misfortune? Is that it?

We sound like the left!

I can see how some of these more right-leaning click-bait sites might post stuff like this. But how is this new groundbreaking morsel germane to anything, and why are respected conservative news sites at all interested in this tabloid garbage? read more

A New Day – A New Leftist Hypocrisy Revealed

by: Brent Smith

The hypocrisy of the left is sometimes so over-the-top that it becomes almost incomprehensible. And the irony is evidently lost on them all.

At the same time, last Saturday, as that eco-privileged children stormed the field during the Yale-Harvard football game, the leftist democrat presidential candidates were having a cookout in Iowa, where they cooked up over 10,000 steaks, using noxious barbecue grills which bellow out smoke and warm the planet. All the major players were in attendance, grilling away.

Yet on the very same day and from the climate warming grill-fest, some of the most staunch (and phony) eco-warrior candidates were tweeting their support for the football field protest to combat climate change/fossil fuel/global warming.

From the smoke filled grill-fest, Bernie Sanders, who is backed by Green New Dealer, AOC, tweeted: “Congratulations to the young people demanding a sustainable future for our planet. We are with you in this fight.” In his defense, Bernie does know quite a bit about fossil fuel, as he is himself, a fossil.

Julián Castro tweeted, while sucking in fumes from the thousands of steaks being BBQ’d: “I’m inspired by their efforts to hold their universities to a higher standard.” read more

Video Podcast – PA Abortion Bill – John Solomon Ukraine Corruption Facts

by: Brent Smith

In segment one I discuss the passage of a bill to protect the lives of unborn babies with Down syndrome by the Pennsylvania legislature.

While is to be congratulated, why stop at unborn babies with a particular disability. Why not just pass a bill to include all unborn babies.

I also give my view on abortion over all – and it may not be what you think.

In segment two I discuss a recent article penned by acclaimed investigative reporter, John Solomon, where he issues 28 facts to refute the claims of Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s that “asserted all the factual elements in my [Solomon’s] columns at The Hill about Ukraine were false.”

Unlike Vindman, who, in my opinion, is a disgrace to the dress uniform he wore, all of Solomon’s assertions are backed up by cold hard facts.

Solomon describes Vindman as a hero, but to me, he is just another sell-out to the deep state, like was John McCain. Heroic military deeds can never excuse current behavior. read more

State Department Corruption Exposed

The more that’s uncovered about this Ukraine corruption mess, the more it reads like a fictional spy novel. And the people testifying against Trump appear to be the actual criminals.

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

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

Billionaire and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is preparing to file paperwork to run for president in at least one state with an early filing deadline, according to a report.

The New York Times stated Thursday evening that Bloomberg is expected to complete paperwork for the Democrat Party’s presidential primary in Alabama before this Friday’s deadline. However, the Times said the 77-year-old has yet to officially make up his mind about seeking the highest office in the land. read more

Just how many are Involved in this Anti-Trump Campaign?

After all this, if not one, but a whole bunch of democrats don’t go to prison over the attempted treasonous overthrow of a branch of the government, there is no justice in the world. Simply allowing anyone involved to get off with suffering the maximum punishment allowed under the law is a miscarriage of justice. This was/is an attempted coup of monumental proportions!

Brennan’s Spy? New Theories Emerge About Trump-Ukraine Whistleblower

As Democrats seek to impeach President Trump over the “high crime” of asking Ukraine to investigate his political opponents, theories have emerged suggesting the whole thing is a ‘six ways from Sunday‘ operation by Intelligence Community holdovers and Establishment Democrats to remove a sitting President who started flying too close to the sun.

After Trump asked his Ukrainian counterpart on July 25 to investigate pro-Clinton Ukrainian meddling in the 2016 US election, and allegations of corruption against Joe Biden and his son Hunter, a CIA officer who worked with the ‘DNC meddler’ and Joe Biden filed a second-hand whistleblower complaint on a recently altered form (which previously allowed only first-hand information). 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
