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

from Conservative Review:

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

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

The Silent Scourge of Illegal Immigration – Identity Theft

Feds charge illegal alien fake breastfeeding mother with identity theft of an American

Remember Maria Domingo-Garcia – the illegal alien mother who claimed to be breastfeeding a baby and got the media to shed tears on her behalf? Not only did ICE confirm she was not lactating, but it turns out that far from being a sympathetic victim, she actually victimized an American citizen or legal immigrant with identity theft.

Yesterday, Domingo-Garcia was indicted by a grand jury on two counts of ID theft and documentation fraud. read more

One Deportation Could’ve Prevented 19 or More Murders

Nobody in the GOP Senate or the White House is taking notice of what might be the worst and most heinous criminal alien crime committed in American history. We must discuss closing the multiple criminal alien loopholes that violate laws duly passed Congress.

At least 19 Texans were allegedly killed by someone who should never have been in the country, who had been in jail for other crimes and should have been deported. What if I told you that if we merely enforced and tightened existing laws, unvetted foreign nationals like this would never be able to commit subsequent crimes? “Do something!!,” you would say, right? read more

Video Podcast – Trump Must Put the Courts in Their Place

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The other day, Daniel Horowitz of Conservative Review made a couple of great points regarding the recent supreme Court decisions.

It was regarding both the DACA non-decision and the census decision.

Neither of these “cases” should involve the courts at any level, much less the supreme Court.

I discuss why both should be decided by only the Executive branch, with no inputs from the courts, and little, if any input from even the Legislative branch. read more

Trump Needs to Explain what Shutting Down the Border Really Means

from Conservative Review:

We can keep the ports open to commerce, secure our borders, and eat our avocados tooImage result for suspend all immigration

There is a difference between shutting down the border for commerce and suspending all immigration at our border.

The good news is that the media are finally admitting that the president has the authority to close the border. The bad news is that they are obfuscating the distinction between shutting off the entire border for commerce and suspending immigration requests at the border. The Trump administration would be wise to push back against it immediately and clarify this distinction.

The media is in full meltdown mode over Trump’s threat to “shut down” the border, as they predict doom and gloom for our economy, loss of jobs, and loss of revenue. We might even face an avocado shortage, according to the New York Times! Imagine that.

Never mind that the cost of one year’s border flow could add up to at least $150 billion for taxpayers. read more
