The Most Popular Democrat Governors are the Most Oppressive

by: Brent Smith

Yesterday a question was asked on the Blaze’s Pat Gray morning radio show: “Why, out of all the democrat governors, are two becoming so popular?”End Justifies the Means Images, Stock Photos & Vectors | Shutterstock

Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York and Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer have become the new rock stars of the democrat party.

And it’s the two with the most draconian shutdown, hunker-down policies.

Pat Gray thought this was very interesting (tongue in cheek) that the two most vocal complainers of Trump policy have become so popular.

They’ve been getting the lion’s share of press simply because their complaining has been targeted at Trump, the bane of every leftist’s existence. And equally as interesting is that their whining is made to appear like a strength. read more

Video Podcast – The Pandemic of 2020 is a Good Crisis

by: Brent Smith

Deborah Frank Feinen, the mayor of Champaign, Illinois, issued a coronavirus-related emergency declaration Friday that will allow her office to ban the sale of guns, ammunition, and alcohol, take possession of private property and prohibit the entry and exit to and from the city.

The fear of the coronavirus is more of a pandemic than the virus itself and the democrats and the press are fueling that fear.

An irrational fear has gripped our nation like almost we’ve seen in the past. It’s much worse than the last pandemic that killed 10s of thousands. Yet strangely there was not the overhyped alarmism then that there is today.

I discuss the reason behind it. read more

WND Exclusive – Time to choose: Marxism or Capitalism

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

We on the right continue to debate which general election foe will be the easiest for President Trump to defeat.

Is it Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden?

But the way things are going, the question is becoming moot. The Democratic establishment has once again begun to circle the wagons against a perceived threat. And once again that threat is communist Bernie Sanders.

And as an aside, can we finally drop the “Sanders is a socialist” nonsense?

The conventional wisdom is that the Democrats are, for the second cycle in a row, trying to take out Bernie the Red Sanders. read more

The Excuses for a Democrat Loss have already Begun

If you’re familiar with “The Atlantic,” website, you’ll guess like me that if they were to endorse a presidential candidate, it would probably be Bernie Sanders.

To me, the Atlantic is as leftist as Slate or Salon.com.

But they haven’t endorsed anyone as of yet. Don’t know that they will, but it would definitely be Bernie.

Instead the just publish pieces extolling the virtues of leftism, or articles such as the following, giving excuses for, if a “progressive” doesn’t win and why – and if a moderate doesn’t win and why. Neither time is the fault of the progressive.

It’s kind of like when we say Communism doesn’t work – has never worked – their retort is that it’s just never been implemented properly.

The article is entitled:

When Will Moderates Learn Their Lesson?

If centrists can’t move past their doctrine and recognize when their candidates are unelectable, then how will Democrats ever beat Trump?

It’s authored by a gentleman named Ibram X. Kendi, Director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University. read more

WND Exclusive – Is Bernie Soros’ Puppet to Remake (destroy) America?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

If this doesn’t get you out to vote, nothing will. And it’s just three simple words. Simple, but excruciatingly painful: President Bernie Sanders.

The old saying, elections have consequences, is no truer than it is today. And I can think of nothing more consequential than the election of Sanders.

I would estimate that the vast majority of ignorant millennials and college students who have and will cast a ballot for Sanders have no idea what they’re really voting for.

All they know is that Bernie has promised them an endless array of free stuff and money.

But below the surface lies a horror of unimaginable misery – something Americans have never experienced. read more

Crooked Dems and Their “For the People Act”

from the American Thinker:

Do Democrats really care about election integrity?

What does “election integrity” actually mean to Democrats?  A perspective is provided by the Democrat-sponsored “For the People Act” (H.R.1 in the current Congress), a dreadfully misnamed legislative mess that purports to improve election integrity and transparency.  Some of its features are:

• Mandates automatic, universal voter registration, and makes it a crime to interfere with registration

• Allows voter registration at age 16 read more

WND Exclusive – Let’s Compare the Candidates’ Families

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

To the left, Trump and his entire family are a bunch of low-down dirty crooks.

It’s so bad that the hags on “The View” couldn’t even bring themselves to speak Donald Trump Jr.’s name. That’s derangement.

Yet when doing a comparison of the Trump family to the families of at least two of his highest-ranked Democratic rivals, there’s kind of no comparison.

Trump’s family members are legit business people. They may have had an advantage from the outset, but they made the most of it and have become accomplished in their own right. Unlike many children of the wealthy, they didn’t just lie about and let daddy take care of them. read more

Dems Whine about Facebook?

Well this is rich!

The second things don’t go the way they want, leftist progressive statists whine like stuck pigs. And my apology to stuck pigs.

Facebook finally releases what appears to be a reasonable and fair ad policy prior to the 2020 election heating up, and because the dems get no advantage from it, they claim that Zuckerberg, of

all people, is getting his marching orders from president Trump.

And as government statists always do, they wield the power of the federal government as a bludgeon to threaten a private company.

Like I said – this is rich.

from NewsBusters:

The media and Democrats want to limit Facebook ads before the 2020 election. But Facebook refused to cave in to their demands.

In a Jan. 9 blog post published by Facebook Director of Product Management Rob Leathern, the company argued that “we don’t think decisions about political ads should be made by private companies.” Facebook stated that its principle was that “people should be able to hear from those who wish to lead them, warts and all, and that what they say should be scrutinized and debated in public.” read more

Childish Dems Nip At Trumps Heels

from Victor Davis Hanson at Townhall:

Is Trump the Only Adult in the Room?

Is Trump the Only Adult in the Room?

But then again, no president in modern memory has been on the receiving end of such overwhelmingly negative media coverage and a three-year effort to abort his presidency, beginning the day after his election.

Do we remember the effort to subvert the Electoral College to prevent Trump from assuming office?

The first impeachment try during his initial week in office?

Attempts to remove Trump using the ossified Logan Act or the emoluments clause of the Constitution?

The idea of declaring Trump unhinged, subject to removal by invoking the 25th Amendment? 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.

from the Federalist:

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.
