Video Podcast – Our Nursing Homes are being Neglected

by: Brent Smith

I found an article at Conservative Review that I must share by one of my favorite writers and thinkers, Daniel Horowitz.

It’s entitled, “Secure the nursing homes, not the beaches: Most new deaths are from nursing homes.”

It got me so angry that I feel I must share it. The numbers and percentages of nursing home deaths from Covid-19 are staggering.

The politicians are to blame for this, but I guess it’s up to us to get the word out. read more

Illegal Aliens Can Vote – So Says the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals

Horowitz: States can declare martial law on citizens but can’t stop noncitizens from voting

A broken clock is right twice a day, but our judiciary is always wrong, as it has perfectly twisted fundamental rights inside out and has flipped state and federal powers upside down.

We have finally discovered a power that the courts feel a state does not have. At a time when states are violating our rights to life, liberty, and property, restricting free movement, regulating interstate commerce and travel, and forming interstate compacts – all against the most basic foundations of our Constitution – the courts have finally stepped in to limit state powers. A federal court has ruled states cannot … ask for proof of citizenship to vote. read more

Left to Leftist Governors – Some States Will Never Reopen

from Conservative Review:

Horowitz: Liberal governors publish plan to reopen society … never

The plan to reopen our lives and economy posted earlier this week by a group of liberal governors creates enough unrealistic benchmarks that society will never reopen, which is clearly their plan. Taken in totality, it ignores all the recent evidence debunking the premise of the lockdown, creates a massive, unconstitutional surveillance state, hires enormous numbers of government workers to do useless testing and tracing long after the virus already spread, and permanently makes us vassals to the state.

On Tuesday, the National Governors Association, led by “Lockdown” Larry Hogan of Maryland and Andrew Cuomo of New York, released a 38-page, 10-point “Roadmap to Recovery,” but it’s more of a roadmap to permanent lockdown and a police state. read more

Governments Gone Wild With Forced Quarantines

Horowitz: It’s time to end the great American COVID-19 police state

We now have the most severe, widespread, and protracted form of martial law in our nation’s history … except as it applies to dangerous criminals who are undeterred and released. How much worse will we allow this to get until we call a foul on these gross constitutional violations?

As I observed last week, states have wide latitude to forcibly quarantine individuals or groups of people from the general population. But they don’t have the power to shut down the entire general population. Also, as the Supreme Court has said many times, there are times when life, liberty, and property can be infringed upon, but it must be narrowly tailored to the least invasive means needed to achieve the compelling state interest. What is happening now is anything but narrow. read more

Time to Rise up Against State Taxes

by Brent Smith:

They can’t have it both ways, both so far State Governors and legislators have just that.

They shutter entire States, knowing the feds will fit the bill for their reckless behavior.

Just one example is leftist New Jersey.

On March 21, Gov. Phil Murphy ordered residents to stay at home. He also canceled gatherings of any number, including parties, weddings and religious ceremonies.

“We have to change our behaviors,” Murphy said, adding the restrictions would not change “anytime soon” and could continue for weeks or months.

Yet, as of yesterday, New Jersey State taxes are still due on April 15th, despite the federal government extending the filing deadline from April to July 15th.

It’s time for a State income, property and sales tax revolt.

With Americans being Laid Off – We don’t need more Foreign Workers

This is just further proof of how low down and despicable Pelosi and the democrats are and just one more reason to exclaim that the democrats don’t give a damn about American workers!

It seems not even a pandemic will deter them from advancing their America-last, leftist agenda.

Just try to get through this article without becoming infuriated. I dare you!

Please Mr. President – put America first and cancel this boondoggle!

Horowitz: With so many Americans hurting, Trump must cancel the H-1B visa lottery

Nothing demonstrates the darkness of the liberal agenda in the shutting down of America’s economy than the push for more foreign labor. If they are saying we need to spend trillions of dollars to help hurting Americans who are out of jobs, you’d think it would be a no-brainer to cancel foreign worker visas, not talk about increasing them. read more

There’s Panic Where there Shouldn’t Be

from Conservative Review:

Horowitz: The key bad assumption in the bipartisan panic pander bill

Congress spending and wasting your money.

How can Congress treat the fallout of a problem it has failed to define and whose solutions are helping to drive the problem? What is the point of bankrupting our future for a stimulus when California is shutting down the entire state and the Trump administration is considering doing so for the entire nation? We are entitled to a robust debate and some answers.

Politicians and the media are telling the public to be prudent and not to panic, but everything they are saying and implementing is sowing panic, and they are now contemplating actions that reflect more of a bubonic plague dynamic. Their entire legislative approach is about feeding on panic and using the crisis to immediately implement socialism before we even know the scope of the problem and can more effectively target solutions. read more

Senate GOP Still Hearts the Green Agenda

from Conservative Review:

Horowitz: Senate pushing bipartisan green energy social engineering bill

While there is no bipartisan clamor to use GOP Senate control to force votes on sanctuary cities, there is a rush to pass a bipartisan bill dumping more money into green energy programs. Some might have thought we were done with the green energy venture socialism after the Obama era of Solyndra scandals, but in Washington, both parties are addicted to corporate welfare. Hence the rush to pass S. 2657, the American Energy Innovation Act.

It’s hard to call this bill bipartisan, given that the lead GOP sponsor is Sen. Lisa Murkowski. Yet even after voting against Kavanaugh and flirting with support for impeachment, she seems to control the Senate floor agenda more than anyone pushing the Trump agenda on immigration. read more

On the Verge of Pandemic, Court Effectively Opens Border

Imagine you are a liberal judge on the federal bench. You know that the entire political system, which includes all three branches of government and both political parties, vests you with unlimited power to dictate policy with an injunction. Regardless of the law, Constitution, rules of standing for a judicial case, past and recent Supreme Court precedent, political fallout, or national security consequences, you can declare an opinion and have that policy unquestionably become “the law of the land.” Why wouldn’t you try your hand at being a judicial version of Kim Jong-un?

At some point, we should stop blaming the judges for legislating with impunity and start blaming the other branches for not only ceding that power, but actively giving effect to the judges’ usurpations of law.

Is “The Purge” coming to a City Near You?

Many of us are at least familiar with the movie(s) about “The Purge.” The premise of these disgusting horror films is that, for a period of time, all crime is legal – no holds barred – no restrictions at all. Everything and everyone is fair game, from petty theft to murder and everything in between.

Personally I think it takes a rather sick mind to imagine such a thing, and an even more disturbed individual(s) to make it into a movie. And it doesn’t say much of those who spend money to view it (them). But that’s a discussion for another day.

This is about the coming real-life “Purge.” Cities like New York, who recently enacted “no bail” laws, have seen a drastic increase in crimes and multiple repeat offenders.

And instead of recoiling at the prospect, other cities and States are pondering following suit.

It’s why we conservatives often speak of slippery slopes – because this is the way it starts.

New York’s crime laws imploding: 7 insane prison release stories

Weak-on-crime laws and policies are imploding everywhere they are enacted. New York is now the poster child of jailbreak insanity. Yet Republicans nationwide remain surprisingly muted in their criticism. Why? Because so many of them support the underlying premise behind de-incarceration radicalism. read more
