Democrats and the Free Press

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The main stream media and the democrats claim, like Joe Biden did recently, that president Trump is an “existential” threat to this nation. They claim that Trump is an enemy to a free press in this country and wants to censor them and shut them down.

However, not once as I recall, has the president Trump ever seriously called for the shuttering of any leftist news outlets, or silencing any opposing voices. Frankly, why would he. They are doing such a bang up job of it themselves.

Just look at the tanking ratings for CNN and the like. Every time I tune in to that network, I wonder why advertisers still run commercials there. Who’s going to see them? Every month there are new reports of CNN losing more market share.

Yet still they won’t change their narrative.

Unfortunately for the left, the facts, and history, is and has always been on our side. And it’s a funny thing about facts. There is no denying them. Oh sure, they can try to spin them, but the facts are and every will be what they are. read more

WND Exclusive – WHAT ABOUT AMENDING THE 2ND AMENDMENT?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

The Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution to prevent government infringement on our natural rights as Americans. It was designed to prevent government the ability to bestow and therefore rescind the rights of the individual.

To that, there was an interesting and thought-provoking article in the Washington Post recently. I’m not sure I’ve ever uttered those words in the same sentence: thought-provoking and Washington Post.

As I rarely peruse the pages of the Post, I must thank Jazz Shaw at HotAir.com for bringing it to our attention. read more

WaPo Can’t Help Itself – Trashes Military Even On Anniversary of D-Day

from NewsBusters:

It’s the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Getting a little choked up about the endless lines of white crosses and the few stooped and wizened survivors being rolled slowly among them? Feeling slightly in awe of men who could scale Pointe du Hoc, drag themselves up the shingle on Omaha or jump from an airplane into tracers and flak? Feeling, well, a touch grateful? That’s nice. Time’s up. read more

Lazy Incurious Leftist Journalism

From the Resurgent:

A Reminder That Some Journalists Are Lazy Idiots Who Progressives Spoon Feed

A whole lot of journalists are lazy progressive hipsters who hang out around the same people who think the same things and are, as a result, easily manipulated and played. Also, many of them are so liberal and have so many biases that it makes it even easier for progressives to spoon feed stories to journalists. read more

The Left is All About Intelligence Secrets and Classified Material

from The American Spectator:

Declassification and Cognitive Dissonance in the Media

How the media stopped worrying and learned to love the CIA.

When Nancy Pelosi decided to appease the impeachment hawks in her caucus by accusing President Trump of engaging in a cover-up, the media responded with undisguised glee. The New York Times, for example, ran a story that essentially congratulated the House Speaker for publicly goading the man. Trump responded by giving them transparency good and hard. He not only instructed the various intelligence agencies to assist Attorney General William Barr with his inquiry into the inception of the Russia investigation, but gave Barr authority to declassify related intelligence material. Oddly, the media have suddenly lost their enthusiasm for transparency. read more

This is What a Real Constitutional Crisis Looks Like

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

For as long as Donald Trump remains president, democrats will not stop trying to remove him from office. They will never admit defeat and will never cease trying to undermine the president at every step.

And, because of this, a new precedent has been set in the political arena. We said early on in Trump’s presidency, that everyone will eventually be forced to pick a side. Neutral bystanders will no longer be allowed to exist. Partisanship will be forced upon all the citizenry.

Shortly after Trump was elected, the attacks on him started to ramp up. So nakedly egregious is the injustice of the left, that people who were not previously Trump supporters, are beginning to come to his defense.

At first, many conservatives defended Trump regarding policy alone, but now, it’s just full-throated defense of a president who deserves none of the slings and arrows being hurled his way. The attacks are so virulent that they now threaten our republic. The attacks against Trump are no longer just directed at him, but at the very office itself.

This, if the left is at all interested, is what a real constitutional crisis looks like. read more

Another Conservative Voice gets Squelched

from the American Spectator:

Facebook Targets Michelle Malkin: Gives Pass to Antifa

And there they go again.

Facebook has censored Michelle Malkin — for protesting censorship. Meanwhile, as noted in this space just last week, Facebook has no problem with the pro-fascist and deliberately misnamed “Antifa” — the pro-fascist group that pretends its use of hooded faces and clubs is somehow “anti-fascist.” Here is the link to AntifaUSA and their masked faces as they appear on Facebook. Take a good look at Antifa’s favored appearance of black ski masks and recall another leftist group — this one that historians describe as the “terrorist arm of the Democratic Party.”

Ahh, the more things change the more they stay the same — from the Klan to Antifa the far-left specializes in hiding its faces to enable its acts of hatred and violence.

And what specifically was Michelle Malkin censored for? Here, courtesy of Breitbart, is the tweet that got her censored: read more

Better to be Awake than Woke

by: Brent Smith at Common Constitutionalist

I enjoy viewing various #WalkAway stories from time to time – seeing what it took for each to wise up to the nonsense they’ve been spoon-fed their whole lives.

For those unfamiliar, the #WalkAway campaign was founded by Brandon Straka, whose liberal eyes were opened to the hypocrisy and lies of the left and decided to WalkAway from liberalism and the democrat party.

Now, thousands are too having their eyes open as they join the campaign.

The following is a #WalkAway video posted by Shannon. She claims to be an independent, not affiliated with either party, but always voted democrat, until recently. read more

Joe Biden’s Apology Tour Begins with a History Rewrite

from the Federalist:

Joe Biden Should Apologize To Clarence Thomas, Not To Anita Hill

History becomes myth, myths become legends, and legends become unquestionable. And if a biased media is writing the story, even dubious tales can turn into unassailable “fact” with the right combination of narrative and time. This has been the case with Anita Hill.

Hill’s testimony alleging that Clarence Thomas, then a nominee for the Supreme Court, repeatedly harassed her in the workplace made for explosive politics back in 1991. It’s reemerging as an issue in 2019 thanks to the new presidential candidacy of Joe Biden. As senator, Biden chaired the Judiciary Committee, and in the eyes of the Democratic voters he hopes to court, he permitted too many tough questions attempting to ascertain the truth from Hill. read more
