So You Want to Understand the Constitution

from Zero Hedge:

If You Want To Understand The Constitution, Don’t Ask A Lawyer

Most Americans say the Constitution is important. Most Americans say it’s crucial for the government to stay within its constitutional bounds. But what exactly are the constitutional limits on federal power? How do we know?

Well, whatever you do, don’t ask a lawyer. Most of them know very little about the Constitution.

I can already hear you protesting. Lawyers know a lot about the Constitution. They learn constitutional law, for goodness sake!

But read closely what I wrote. I didn’t say they don’t know a lot about constitutional law. I said they typically don’t know a lot about the Constitution. There’s a huge difference. read more

Video Podcast – FISA Nonsense – Joe Rogan

by: Brent Smith

Today I discuss the FISA court, FBI lying, bogus Articles of Impeachment and the likelihood that those responsible for this mess will not be held accountable.

Lives have been literally ruined – and for what – all so that obsessed leftists can try to take down Trump before he wins reelection. Because that’s the real goal. Justice has nothing at all to do with it.

That and I discuss the less than reasoned explanation why Joe Rogan will probably vote for Bernie Sanders. read more

Not All Libs are Against the Second Amendment

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be anything remaining that the right and left could agree on – along comes a Second Amendment rally, that is evidently so important, it caused otherwise unhinged leftists to join constitution conservatives in the fight to preserve Americans’ gun rights.

Talk about some strange bed fellows.

But I guess there still remains something that is bigger than all of us – the United States Constitution.

I was going to say God, but considering who these groups are – I didn’t want to get too carried away.

Podcast – War Powers – Did Trump have the Authority to Kill Soleimani?

by: Brent Smith

Did Trump have the right, the authority under the Constitution to kill Soleimani and that other bag of dirty, al-Muhandis?

That’s been the burning question on everyone’s mind and just another perceived log, stoking the democrat fires of impeachment. Can this also be added to their Articles of Impeachment – or maybe saved for later?

Was Trump Constitutionally correct in “unilaterally” ordering the strike against the left’s new war hero, Qassem Soleimani?

Well, the short answer is yes, and I will explain exactly why the president was and is right and the dems are once again wrong. read more

Stein: Democrat Long Knives

from the American Spectator:

The Democrats’ Long Knives

To whom do we owe our freedom? Do we owe it to the nightly news show hosts? I don’t think so. To the rap stars? Again, not a chance. To our great athletes? To the stars whom we sometimes dance with? No.

We owe everything to a tiny sliver of the population, about 2/3 of one percent, who wear the uniform. They put up their lives each and every day to save us. There are about 1.45 million of them out of a national population of about 330 million. We do virtually nothing for them. They do everything for us. read more

The Gift of Our Constitution

from the New York Sun:

As President Trump and Speaker Pelosi retreat to their corners for Christmas, we find ourselves thinking of the gift of the Constitution. It was ten years ago that the Sun started writing about America’s “constitutional moment.” We had just brought out — as “The Citizen’s Constitution” — our annotated guide to the national parchment. It was animated by a sense that our politics had become so divided, so bitter, that our factions would end up fighting ever more battles on America’s legal bedrock. read more

WND Exclusive – Take a toke, man – your town needs the tax money

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

There are some odd things going on in our country lately.

Yes, I know that’s a silly open-ended statement and could refer to just about anything these days. But I’m talking about the seeming disconnect between states and the federal government. Or more specifically, the disconnect between state and federal laws.

In this case, the disconnect between federal marijuana laws and that of the states.

Marijuana is considered an illegal substance by the feds, yet at least 11 states have legalized its purchase and consumption – either strictly medically and/or for recreational use.

The United States Constitution is unmistakably clear concerning the relationship of federal and state law.

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

by: Brent Smith

Scroll Down for Audio Version

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

Podcast – The Deep State Department, Impeachment and the Founders

by: Brent Smith

Today I’ll discuss what I’ve coined the “Deep State” Department and how it is akin, as Glenn Beck astutely describes, as Hydra, form the Marvel movies. They are, we discovering, remarkably similar, except for all the death ships and such.

In mine and others’ opinion, that’s really what’s this latest attempt at impeachment and removal of president Trump is really about – teaching our elected officials that the deep state actually runs the show and don’t try to usurp their power, or pay the price for doing so.

I also discuss Marie Yovanovitch “feelings” testimony, Liz Cheney and the founders original intent and language of the impeachment clause in the Constitution. read more

WND Exclusive – Trump’s California Emissions Move Unconstitutional

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

We’ve all heard by now that President Trump is proposing to take away “California’s power to set its own vehicle tailpipe emissions standards, escalating an environmental dispute that has trapped auto makers in the middle.”

This move by Trump is reported to be in conjunction with a rollback of Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) Standards.

To date, all of California emission standards restrictions eclipse those of the federal government.

If you are unfamiliar, Corporate Average Fuel Economy(CAFE) Standards are regulations, first enacted by the United States Congress in 1975, after the 1973–74 Arab oil embargo, to improve the average fuel economy of cars and light trucks (trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles) produced for sale in the United States. read more
