Mueller’s New Inquisition Model – Guilty Until Proven Innocent

Mueller sets a new standard for innocence: Prove you did not commit a crime

Speaking at Justice Department headquarters in Washington, D.C., Wednesday morning, a visibly nervous Robert Mueller told reporters that he found no evidence of collusion with Russia, but then appeared to invent a new, extrajudicial standard for innocence in the United States.

First going through many of the conclusions of his April report on supposed Russian interference in the 2016 election, Mueller then announced that he will be “resigning from the Department of Justice to return to private life,” effective today.

He restated his report’s conclusion that there was no evidence to support the collusion narrative. read more

Video Podcast – Saving a Life in the #MeToo Era – It Takes a Village to Solve the Measles Crisis

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

We’ve all seen studies and polls showing how younger men and women are dating less and it’s because of the whole #MeToo crap.

Sure a lot of the #MeToo stuff is legit, but a lot isn’t too.

And what has this movement potentially wrought? Well, a new study finds that women are more likely to die if they have a cardiac arrest in public because people fear performing CPR on them could be seen as sexual assault.

And California Senate passes bill to end fake vaccine exemptions: Only state health officials will decide who skips shots if it is signed into law.

This is yet another case, in my opinion, of never letting a good crisis go to waste. And it’s yet another example of the slippery slope of more government intrusion and overstep.

But we must always remember: It takes a village to raise a child, and eventually make all parenting decisions. read more

Has the Left Planted a Red Flag in Your State?

from American Thinker:

Red Flag Laws and Individual Rights

Historically, the synonymous concepts of liberty and freedom were assumed to be the inherent right of every citizen born in our country.  Not so much these days.

In my home state of Colorado recently, the Democrat-controlled legislature signed a ‘red flag’ bill into law.  Joining fourteen other leftist-controlled states, Colorado’s ‘red flag’ law enables the forceful removal of a citizen’s firearms. My state represents another win in the left’s ongoing crusade to separate Americans from their personal liberty.

On the surface, ‘red flag’ laws appear reasonable.  When a person exhibits warning signs they are an extreme danger to themselves and others, the best course of action is to intervene by taking away their arms.  Common sense, the Left argues.  After all, if a court determines a person poses a societal risk, forcibly seizing their firearms reduces that risk.  Right? read more

Expanding Government by Reauthorization

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Have you ever wondered why bills written by Congress and the Senate are often so long? Many are hundreds or thousands of pages. Most are not even read before being voted on. And even you could struggle through the length, you will need a legal interpreter to be able to understand what you just read. These bills are so cumbersome, so complicated, that they’re impossible to understand, much less vote on.

But vote on these bills they do. And it’s doubtful that the vast majority of politicians have any idea of what they are voting on and passing.

Worse, I no longer think that it even matters. The majority of democrats and Republicans don’t care what is in any given piece of legislation, as long as even a portion of it, somehow advances their agenda. And it’s usually a tiny few paragraphs or so that are hidden among the mountain of pages.

The only exceptions to this statement are the few constitutional conservatives who continually hold on to the Originalist view of the rule of law. But that number is too few to have an affect on most outcomes. read more

Vaccinations and the Power of the State

Should the government – local, State or federal, have the power to force anyone to be vaccinated against highly infectious diseases? Good question.

There has been a recent outbreak of the measles in New York. Local affiliate WABC reports that just since October, 2018, there have been 214 confirmed cases in Brooklyn and Queens and another 153 in Rockland County.

And because of this, Rockland County has declared a State of Emergency. Rockland County Executive Ed Day announced that non-vaccinated minors are now barred from public places.

AS of Thursday, March 28, 2019, “anyone who is under 18 years of age and is not vaccinated against the measles is prohibited from public places until the declaration expires in 30 days or until they receive the MMR vaccination.”

MMR stands for the combination vaccine for Measles, Mumps and Rubella (German Measles). read more

If You Don’t Support the Leftist Agenda – People Will Die

Yes, this video is almost two years old, but it’s as relevant today as it was then. And we still have the same cast of characters and the same silly issues the left continues to push. And with the 2020 presidential election heating up, you know the rhetoric will just become more hyperbolic as each candidate tries to push the envelope further to the radical left. As Rush Limbaugh says, it’s demonstrating absurdity by being absurd.

Radical LGBT Agenda Should Terrify Parents

How have we fallen so far, so fast?

from the Federalist:

LGBT Activists Teaching Judges To Yank Kids From Parents Who Won’t Transgender Them

On Thursday, the Health and Human Services committee of the South Dakota House killed a bill that would have protected the right of parents to refuse to consent to medical or psychological treatment for a child suffering from gender dysphoria if the treatment “would induce, confirm, or promote the child’s belief that the child’s sex or gender identity is different from the child’s sex presented at birth.” Proposed House Bill 1205 also provided that “no public authority or official of this state may take any adverse action against a parent for exercising this right.” read more

WND Exclusive – Dem’s New Ammo Tax to Result in More Deaths?

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily: 

Don’t ever let anyone convince you that all Democrats are complete fiscal or economic ignoramuses. It may just seem that way listening to the new darling of the radical left, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

For sure, there appear to be some economic principles that just escape them, like the impact of Medicare-for-All, but at least some Democrats understand basic tax policy and the effects of taxation. At least some understand that if you want more of something, tax it less, and if you want less, tax it more.

Take, for example, Connecticut Democratic state Rep. Jillian Gilchrest’s new ammunition tax proposal. She wants to increase the state ammunition tax to 50 percent. Currently, ammo is taxed at the same rate as every other consumer good, and that just won’t do. read more
