Is the Bill of Rights Absolute?

by: Brent Smith

Scroll Down for Audio Version

When speaking about the Second Amendment, Lunchbox Joe Biden recently said that “no amendment is absolute.”

Well Lunchbox. If you mean that amendments are not perfect and not beyond change – then you’re right. But if Joe, or whoever wrote what Joe was reading, means that amendments can just be restricted or limited by a single executive’s edict, by legislative action, or just ignored all together, he is dead wrong.

And we all know what he means. It’s the latter, not the former. read more

We Must Adhere to America’s Rulebook

by: Brent Smith

What does it mean when we on the right describe ourselves as conservatives? What is it that we are trying so hard to save, preserve or prevent the loss of – which is what to conserve means.

Those on the left would say we wish to conserve the days of slavery and Jim Crow – or maybe the white-old days of the 1950s before the Civil Rights movement.

Despite the fact that all those bad times were born of the left in this country, we conservatives wish to reestablish and conserve America’s original set of governing rules.

Our nation was founded on a set of ideals – the Declaration of Independence, and rules – the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Yet Americans today seem only to care, and demand absolute adherence to some rules, while all but ignoring others. read more

WND Exclusive – Is there still a right to bear the Constitution?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Many Americans suffer from a common phobia. No, it’s not the very reasonable fear we are living now, of Democrats running the country. That’s not a phobia, for its not irrational.

No, they suffer from an irrational fear of guns. Guns are not inherently scary. They are just a tool – like a screwdriver or a leaf blower. You’ve heard the saying, the right tool for the right job. You wouldn’t use a gun to blow the leaves around your yard and thus you wouldn’t use a leaf blower to defend yourself. You could try, but I’ll bet it won’t go well.

Yet over the years more and more citizens have been purposely conditioned to think guns are scary “weapons of war.” On a weekly basis, we hear of one after another proposed piece of gun-curtailing legislation coming from the left. read more

Oklahoma Introduces itself to the 10th Amendment

by: Brent Smith

Fancy that. One (maybe two – North Dakota) out of 50 States has the intelligence and the courage to actually follow the rules.

The other 49 (48) are unaware of what Oklahoma is proposing, complete ignoramuses, going to take a wait-and-see approach, or don’t give a crap what the rule book says. They’re going to do whatever they want and are content to let the feds run roughshod over them, providing they’re working toward the same tyrannical ends.

The rule book being the United States Constitution. It is technically still the rule book, right?

The 10th Amendment is the cornerstone of federalism. It reads as follows: read more

Weapon Wednesday – Article V Convention of States: Backstop against Runaway Statism

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

A few years ago, former South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint said: “The United States is a terminal patient on an unsustainable course. Calling an Article V Convention of States would be too risky not to attempt.”

He is more right today than even then.

The left has always been opposed to a Convention of States (COS), provided for in Article V of the U.S. Constitution, but over the last several years, as the COS movement has grown in popularity, conservatives too have come out against it. read more

Video Podcast – Why the Democrats are Holding an Impeachment Trial

By: Brent Smith

What the democrats are doing is clearly anti-constitutional, as it not possible to impeach and remove from public office a private citizen.

But that isn’t stopping the dems and some equally wicked Republicans.

I explain what their up to and why they are really attempting the retroactive impeachment trial. read more

A Perilous Precedent has been Set by the Supreme Court

by: Brent Smith

I agree 100% with the author, Jerome Michaels, regarding this topic. It does seem that our United States supreme Court has abandoned us, and more importantly, abandoned their sworn duty to uphold and defend the Constitution. Because of their non-decision regarding the 2020 election States vs States case, our nation may be irreparably harmed.

And all, in my opinion and his, to avoid making the right choice to at least hear what the plaintiff States had to say for themselves. But no, they punted instead, or more appropriately, as referees, just called the game entirely before the clock even ran out.

But hey, look at size of their building. Must be plenty of places to hide!

from the American Thinker:

A Supreme Court in Hiding is Dangerous for Our Country

In accordance with Art VI of the Constitution, every sitting Supreme Court justice has taken an oath swearing that he or she will “support this Constitution.” The Constitution the justices have sworn to protect is predicated upon free and fair elections so that the government reflects the will of the People. When the justices refuse to protect election integrity, they are violating their sworn oath and putting our constitutional republic at grave risk. read more

WND Exclusive – If Democrats sweep, here’s an alternative to civil war

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

We have a rather odd opportunity this election season with up to four scenarios to consider, as I see things.

Unfortunately, none of our options is great.

First option is that Donald Trump wins the presidency, the Republicans retain the Senate, and the Democrats keep the House. In other words, status quo.

Second option is Trump wins, but the Senate is lost to the Dems, and the Dems retain the House.

Third option is that Trump loses, but Republicans retain the Senate, Dems retain the House.

And the fourth, what conservatives fear the most and what I will concentrate on, is Trump loses, the Dems also take the Senate, while retaining the House, giving them full control of government. read more

The Right to Assemble … in Church

by: Brent Smith

Last Friday, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge granted Los Angeles church-goers the right to worship inside the Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, despite Governor Gavin Newsom’s draconian restrictions.

“Superior Court Judge Gregory Alarcon ruled that [Los Angeles County-based] Grace Community Church can continue to hold indoor services as long as worshippers wear face coverings and practice social distancing,” writes the Blaze.

For many conservatives, this was hailed as a major victory, striking a legal blow at the heart of the radical, anti-religion left.

Well, I guess, in one sense, it kind-of is, if one only considers the case superficially. But looking at this situation through a constitutionalist lense – even a Common one (get it?), it’s only a partial win. read more

Video Podcast – The Remarkably bad George Floyd Incident

by: Brent Smith

There’s absolutely nothing good about this whole mess in Minneapolis. I mean nothing.

Floyd apparently paid for a meal at a local restaurant with a counterfeit $20 bill.
We’ll likely never find out whether he knew the 20 was fake.

Maybe he did. So what?

By now, everyone has seen the video. Two cops handcuff Floyd at, I guess his vehicle. Then they lead him over to the police SUV. Floyd trips on the curb and falls to the pavement. The cops drag him to the driver’s side of their SUV and one cop nonchalantly puts his knee on the back of Floyds neck. You can here Floyd begging for his life. He wasn’t struggling – nothing.

And again – over what? A petty property crime?

Bad deal man. So I’ll give my thoughts at the end.

Then come the riots, vandalism, destruction of property, burning of buildings and looting. Throwing crap at other cops. read more
