WND Exclusive – So Just What is a High Crime and Misdemeanor?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Libertarian Rep. Justin Amash is a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, a fiscal hawk and has a Conservative Review Liberty Score of 90, which is excellent.

So what does all this conservatism have to do with Amash’s recent call for the impeachment of President Trump? In other words, what does one have to do with the other? Well … absolutely nothing. But some “conservative” websites mean to somehow equate the two.

As a general rule, I don’t like calling out another conservative site, particularly as I often quote them. But the Washington Examiner’s piece entitled, “Get mad at Justin Amash all you want, but he’s still the biggest fiscal conservative,” tries to do just that. 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

Shocker – Democrat Judge Donated to Committee Democrats

Now what do we think would be the reaction from the press and democrats if this were a judge appointed by a Republican president? That’s right – conflict of interest – recusal – recusal – recusal – constitutional crisis. Yet strangely, all we hear are crickets.

from Fox News:

Judge who upheld Trump subpoena donated to Dems on committee seeking the records

The New York federal judge who ruled on Wednesday that the Trump administration must comply with two subpoenas from the House Financial Services and Intelligence Committees has donated in the past to a slew of big-name Democrats — including two who currently sit on those committees, according to federal election filings.

After an hour of oral arguments, Barack Obama-appointed U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos ruled the subpoenas to Deutsche Bank and Capital One have “a legitimate legislative purpose,” and that Trump was unlikely to prevail in a lawsuit to quash the requests. Judges have the option to recuse themselves if there is an appearance of bias. 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

No, We don’t want Illegal Aliens Dumped in our Counties

Ain’t this is a funny old world. I discussed this very topic in my most recent video podcast. You may view it here.

from Conservative Review:

It turns out that keeping waves of illegal immigrants out of our communities is a bipartisan goal

In retrospect, Donald Trump locked up the Republican presidential nomination the day he announced his candidacy. In words that will forever be etched in the minds of voters who were captivated by his boldness, Trump came down the escalator at Trump Tower on June 16, 2015, and announced, “The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems.” He spoke directly to the unspoken concern of millions of Americans when he declared, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. … They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” read more

WND Exclusive – Justice Kavanaugh Will Only Drift Left From Here

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

I can’t quite figure out what Rush Limbaugh is up to regarding the recent Supreme Court ruling by Justice Brett Kavanaugh. I can’t figure out whether Rush is being critical of Kavanaugh, or instead trying to give a veiled excuse for his recent siding with the anti-constitutionalists on the court.

Normally, it’s easy to know exactly where Rush stands on any topic or event. It’s easy because he’s so predictably conservative and constitutional.

But Limbaugh has been noticeably different since Trump was elected. Although there is no doubt of Trump’s love of country and his desire to put America first, it’s also common knowledge that he is not an ideological conservative or advocate for small, limited and less expensive government. He just wants the U.S. citizen to get their money’s worth. This is and will continue to be a bone of contention for us constitutionalists. read more

Video Podcast – The Immigration Migration – The Great Abortion Debate

by Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist:

The federal government is planning on dumping up to 1,000 illegal immigrants in two Florida Counties every month. Governor Ron DeSantis had no idea this was going happen. He was given no warning.

I discuss just how wrong this is and how it can possibly still be happening under president Trump.

Democrats are in a panic over several recent State abortion restriction laws.

I discuss the nonsensical arguments of the dems and just why they are in such a panic over an issue they claim is a slam dunk for the left. read more

DC Residents had Better see Through the New Vision Zero Bill

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

The goal of the omnibus Vision Zero bill, from council member Charles Allen of Ward 6, is to decrease the number of traffic accidents with pedestrians and cyclists,” writes the Washington Examiner.

At first blush, it may appear to be a “traffic safety bill,” but reading further, the additional proposals make obvious what this really is. The “Vision Zero bill” is a government command and control / Green New Deal style bill, disguised as a traffic safety bill.

The main takeaway of the bill, that many conservative chronicles gleaned, is that neighbors will be allowed to effectively write their own parking tickets – turning otherwise harmless busy-bodies into traffic cops.

Now, knowing that the police can’t be everywhere, the aforementioned D.C. council member Charles Allen of Ward 6 proposes that, “certain residents,” be given the authority, “to write out parking tickets to their neighbors.” read more

Is Eric Swalwell the Biggest Loser?

Please let me have a Town Hall!!

Question: How does a democrat presidential candidate conclude that he is a total loser and doesn’t have a chance in hell of being the nominee? Simple – make a request of the number cable news network in the nation to conduct an on-air Town Hall. And then be summarily dismissed by said network, when every other candidate is being accepted.

from the Daily Caller:

FOX NEWS REPORTEDLY TURNED DOWN SWALWELL TOWN HALL REQUEST

Democratic California Rep. and presidential candidate Eric Swalwell reportedly wanted to participate in a town hall event on Fox News, but the network rebuffed his request. read more
