Deplorable has a New Meaning – And it’s Nancy Pelosi

Don’tcha just love the flags?

Remember when Hillary Clinton described us as “deplorables?”

Well there’s a new definition, and it describes the impeachment speech that Nancy Pelosi gave the other day. There was nothing quite as deplorable as listening to 5 minutes and 42 seconds of disingenuous faux-patriotism from a San Francisco leftist who, like her fellow leftists would, if they could, shred the Constitution.

It was the most despicable display I’ve seen since the last time Adam Schiff opened his mouth. So really – not so long ago.

Up to the point of the phony Trump impeachment, we never heard a single democrat quoting the founding fathers or our founding documents. Until recently, not a single leftist has mentioned that the United States is in fact a Republic, and not a democracy. However Pelosi intentionally intermingled the two terms as if they are synonymous.

She began by describing our revolution and our want to break free from an oppressive King, King George III, and “the King’s refusal to follow rightfully passed laws.” This, of course, is also meant to describe president Trump. read more

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.

Big Government Will Lower Our Drug Prices!!

Isn’t it funny (not funny ha ha) that our government is the only one who is never to blame for price increases or shortages of any kind. It’s always Big Oil, the military industrial complex, etc. Or in this case, evil Big Pharma. We can’t name one industry that doesn’t get blamed for these occurrences (except of course, Big Education), yet the government, with its penchant for artificially picking winners and losers, escapes all scrutiny. We’re about to see it happen again. And when it has the opposite effect, we’ll all be instructed to once again blame “Big Pharma.”

“Cold” Medicine: Canadian Drug Imports Will Cost Americans

The solution to drug prices is ending freeriding, not buying Canadian

In the hopes of lowering the cost of prescription drugs for Americans, the Trump Administration announced plans in late July to draft a proposal for the importation and sale of prescription drugs from Canada. The announcement was overshadowed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s drug pricing bill and the bipartisan package before the Senate in September—but is a cause for concern, nonetheless. A dozen statesCongress—even the Trump Administration, despite initial opposition—are now considering such legislation.

If “buy-Canadian” doesn’t sound like a policy consistent with Trump’s platform of putting Americans first, that’s because it isn’t. Importing drugs from Canada is an ineffectual and counterproductive policy. President Trump had it right the first time. The prohibitive drug prices that Americans deal with are not solely caused by pharmaceutical companies; they are primarily the product of a failure of government policy.

Instead of artificial fixes, the Trump Administration should directly address the global freeloading and regulatory glut that’s costing Americans—both in dollars and lives. read more

Video Podcast – California’s LGBT Agenda – Virginia Gun Confiscation

by: Brent Smith

California’s LGBT Agenda

California lawmakers passed a resolution this month telling “religious groups” — including Christian pastors and churches — to “embrace” the LGBTQ worldview, even if it contradicts the moral values of those religious groups.

Acceptance and tolerance are no longer enough. And so-called conversion therapy should not be allowed. So say the leftists who run California.

Virginia to be pushing for Gun Confiscation

Now that voters have seen fit to turn Virginia blue, the Governor and legislature is wasting no time reintroducing 8 anti-guns bills. Among them will be to confiscate assault weapons (to start) and the infamous Red Flag law.

Congratulations Virginia – you get what you deserve. read more

WND Exclusive – The Warren Wealth Tax is Nothing New

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Those who back the notion that Elizabeth Warren’s wealth tax is a great idea have given it little to no thought.

The Warren wealth tax is tailor-made to cater to the angry “income inequality” crowd on the left, because when people think of a wealth tax they think of a tax only on the wealthy – a “soak the rich” tax.

Warren’s wealth tax can also be thought of as a veiled property tax. read more

Podcast – Squad Endorses Old White Guy – Syria Will Backfire on Us

by: Brent Smith

Why would the Nouveau-Politburo Endorse Sanders?

Last week, the Squad, or 3 of the 4 Squad members, less Ariana Pressley, announced that they are endorsing Bernie Sanders for president.

To many, me included, it was quite a surprise. But I wasn’t thinking. Shock was my just my knee jerk reaction. I, like many, thought – why would the Squad, who are the embodiment of race and feminist identity politics, embrace and endorse, the oldest, the whitest, the straightest, the most monogamous MAN!!

And I mean – they have to know that Sanders doesn’t have a prayer of winning the nomination.

He’s been steadily sinking in the polls. Then there is the heart attack.

Why would they back a loser?

Syria will Backfire on us

How do I know? Easy. Because these types of “foreign entanglements” always end poorly, if not in disaster. It’s why George Washington warned us about getting involved in all the worlds problems. At the very least, we end up with a permanent footprint after the fighting stops, because we know the second we leave, they’re fighting again.

Those are our choices – just leave and let whatever is going happen – happen – or stay forever. Someday we, as a nation, are going to have to decide they we can’t rescue everyone.

And allying with the Kurds is a bad idea. They are not the Iraqi Kurds. These guys are communists and terrorists and they will never be our friends. read more

Back to Russia?

Guest post by John C. Velisek, USN (Ret.)
for the Common Constitutionalist

Knowing that progressive socialists will never give up on attempting to take President Trump out of office, some further steps and lies will come along before the end of President Trump’s first term. It is informative that now nothing is being said about the Russian collusion hoax that Hillary and the other liars in government set up to entrap our President. The American people understand that, as even Peter Strozk said, there was no there, there.

The progressive socialists who want power, so that they can wield it to force the American people to conform to the agenda that they have laid out for us, will not give up. They cannot admit what the President has done to make this country better. They can’t understand or accept that the America people turn away from socialist doctrine that they want so much for us. read more

Project Veritas Exposes Zucker and CNN

James O’Keefe of Project Veritas just released a new video exposing CNN as exactly what we all thought they were – all Trump, all the time. And worse, he has the video and audio that proves that not all CNN employees are on board. Many actually long for the good old days when all they did was report the news – when they actually sent news crews out to cover stories.

It’s a fascinating look inside the belly of the anti-Trump beast, and confirms that the 24/7 anti-Trump coverage does comes from the top – from CEO Jeff Zucker.

And frankly, at times, I found myself feeling a bit sorry for some of the CNN employees.

It’s a real eye-opener. Enjoy the video: read more

Truth is No Longer Reality

If you’ve ever spoken at length to a liberal, no doubt this has come up. It’s a relatively term, known as speaking one’s truth. Oh, it doesn’t have to be “the truth.” It rarely is. But somehow, that no longer seems to matter. I’ve personally been told that there is my truth, your truth and the truth.

There’s a head-scratcher!

Philosophy professor Paul Copan, for Prager University, discusses this very topic in the following video: read more

Video Podcast – Impeach Trump Poll is Garbage – More California Gun Laws

by: Brent Smith

Fox News Poll is Crap

I explain why the Fox News poll that shows 51% of respondents wish to impeach and remove Trump is absolute crap.

Polls can be created to tell practically any story. Most polls these days don’t take the pulse of the American electorate. They are specifically designed to sway public opinion.

And the Latest Fox News Poll does just that – and is complete garbage.

 

The governor of California signs seven new anti-gun bills into State law

Within these new laws is the slippery slope we on the right have been warning of regarding the Second Amendment.

Start off with the framework – a Red Flag law. After that’s on the book, leftists are free to add-on. And boy do they ever.

With these laws, a whole swath of our population has had its constitutional rights stripped. And scant few are discussing it.

Between anti-gun laws and the impeach Trump cries, we are living a constitutional crisis! read more
