WND Exclusive – Jefferson was not a slavery-loving monster

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Why do kids grow up to be gang bangers, or entrenched racists? Possibly because it’s what they’ve been exposed to – it’s all they’ve ever known. Why are there generations of welfare families? It’s all they’ve ever known. Why do people perpetuate strange habits or customs? They grew up with them. Again, it’s all they’ve ever known.

In fact, there are many strange and even abhorrent customs that have lasted centuries, and looking back at them through a modern-day lens, one can only think – how could this happen? How could people not only tolerate this, but consider it normal behavior? read more

WND Exclusive – Independence Day deaths marked by Divine Providence

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

There were five Founding Fathers who became president. Some would say that, no, in fact there were six. What about John Quincy Adams? Was he not a founder?

No he wasn’t. He was the son of second President John Adams, but was only a child of the Revolution.

The five, in order, were of course George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Monroe.

It was Divine Providence that brought all these great men together at this exact place and this exact time in history. It was through acts of Divine Providence that the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were crafted and signed. It was Divine Providence that assisted in the founding of our nation. read more

It’s Not July 4th, It’s Independence Day

by: Brent Smith 

On July 2, 1776, George Washington sent general orders to his officers explaining the war effort:

“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their Houses, and Farms, are to be pillaged and destroyed, and they consigned to a State of Wretchedness from which no human efforts will probably deliver them. read more

A Declaration of Independency

by: Brent Smith

It was May of 1775 and the second Continental Congress met for the first time. Growing weary of King George III’s utter lack of attention towards the petition to redress grievances sent by the first Continental Congress, the colonists decided to act.

In June of that year the Congress developed their own currency separate of the crown. They also established the first Continental Army, calling themselves the “United Colonies.”

Getting word of the colonies seditious behavior the King declared that the American colonists were “engaged in open and avowed rebellion.” The British Parliament passed the “American Prohibitory Act” later that year, which instituted a naval blockade of all American ports and halted the colonies’ trade with the world and among each other.

March of 1776 saw the second Continental Congress pass “The Privateering Act” giving privateers permission to attack British blockade vessels, for the colonies had not the funds to form a proper Navy. read more

Everywhere Statues Are Torn Down By The Mob, History Promises People Are Next

Everywhere Statues Are Torn Down By The Mob, History Promises People Are Next

The promise of bloodshed coming alongside or following shortly after is an historic certainty. The symbols of a people never satisfy: People themselves must always come next.

For millennia, King Mob has targeted societies’ icons with varied goals and to varied ends, and few things are more foreboding than his desecration of civic art. Just as the targets have ranged from rulers to clergy, from tyrants to helpless, and from the guilty to the innocent, the outcomes have ranged from victory to defeat depending on the society’s strength and will. The promise of bloodshed coming alongside or following shortly after, however, is an historic certainty. The symbols of a people never satisfy: People themselves must always come next. read more

Video Podcast – Racism Must be Eradicated – We’ve Flipped 180 Degrees – Supreme Corruption

by: Brent Smith

The nation seems resigned to ridding itself of all offensive history. So down come the Statues and portraits. But what about president Obama? Shouldn’t he then also be wiped away? After all, he has slave owners in his family tree. If they’re serious, Obama must also go.

The nation, it seems is experiencing a total polar shift, but it’s not North is South. It’s bad is good, good is bad, criminal is victim, victim is criminal, man is woman, etc.

This is what the left and now the BLM/Antifa movement have done. And we’ve allowed it. We’ve allowed a tiny slice of radical America to control a silent majority.

And it’s our fault. We, through our silence, our cowardice and virtue signaling, have allowed this other virus to flourish. And the only vaccine is to stand up, throw away your white guilt and just say no – we will not be a party to it.

John Roberts is at it again – telling the president what he can’t do with the authority clearly granted to the executive. He can’t rescind DACA, because five justices say so.

But what Alexander Hamilton, the musical hero of the left have to say about the judiciary’s power?

Let’s find out.

Thank God for the Anti-Federalists

by: Brent Smith

Over the past few months, we’ve seen many of our natural rights “temporarily” stripped away. Maybe it’s time to remind us who to thank for them and what we might look like without them.

In an Oct. 24, 1787, letter to Thomas Jefferson, James Madison expressed that, “Col. [George] Mason left Philadelphia in an exceeding ill humor indeed. A number of little circumstances arising in part from the impatience which prevailed towards the close of the business, conspired to whet his acrimony. He returned to Virginia with a fixed disposition to prevent the adoption of the plan if possible. He considers the want of a bill of rights as a fatal objection.”

At the Constitutional Convention, in mid-September 1787, committed Anti-Federalists George Mason and Eldridge Gerry failed to persuade any of their fellow delegates to preface the Constitution with a bill of rights.

“It would give great quiet to the people,” urged Mason. He also thought it would be easy to compile a list given the widespread presence of an introductory bill of rights at the state level. A few days later, on Sept. 17, 1787, both Mason and Gerry declined to sign the Constitution, citing the absence of a bill of rights.

Mason’s main objection was that, “There is no Declaration of Rights, and the laws of the general [federal] government being paramount to the laws and constitution of the several States, the Declaration of Rights in the separate States are no security. Nor are the people secured even in the enjoyment of the benefit of common law.” read more

Video Podcast – Supreme Court Overstep – Marvel’s New Superheroes

The supreme Court has decided, because it feels like it, to once again overstep it’s constitutionally authorized duties and grant deported aliens the right of a new challenge to their original deportation.

There’s No Room for Politics at Christmas

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Christmas is almost upon us. And for those like me who celebrate it, we really look forward to this particular holiday season.

But one of the problems with being a political commentator is that it’s what readers, listeners and viewers expect all the time. One doesn’t want to navigate to their favorite political website, only to discover that it’s filled only with recipes and how to put together the perfect holiday gift basket.

Normally this isn’t a problem for us. No matter the season, there is always something going on in this country or worldwide for which to dovetail into politics. Sad really, but true, particularly in the ongoing battle against leftism. The left, as we are well aware, always boils everything down to politics, especially when it comes to religious holidays like Christmas and Easter.

For any radical Antifa members or hard left followers who happened to be reading this article, Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, and Easter is the celebration of his resurrection after he was crucified by the Romans. And for those who are unfamiliar with crucifixion, you can ask New Jersey Senator Corey Booker – if you find him these days. Corey knows all about it, for he is still Spartacus! read more

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

by: Brent Smith

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
