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.

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.

State Department Corruption Exposed

Video Podcast – Of Impeachment Lessons Learned and Warnings

by: Brent Smith

Most of us have heard and know of Alexis de Tocqueville, the famous French philosopher and political theorist and author of “Democracy in America.”

During his time in America, in the 1830s, he made a lot of observations about our country.

Here are just two:

“There are many men of principle in both parties in America, but there is no party of principle, ” and in 1835 he said: “A decline of public morals in the United States will probably be marked by the abuse of the power of impeachment as a means of crushing political adversaries or ejecting them from office.”

And that’s we stand right now, and what I’ll be discussing. read more

New Whistleblower Standard – Well That’s What I Heard!

by: Brent Smith

Scroll Down for Audio ArticleImage result for whistleblower

Channeling my best Andy Rooney – Have you ever noticed that everything the democrats accuse the Republicans of is something they have already done or plan on doing?

It’s called projection and it’s quite common. As they accuse Donald Trump of strong-arming the Ukrainian president, we find out that Trump didn’t but Joe Biden did. The democrats are a collection of liars and cheaters, so they project their bad behavior on others.

Because they do it, they figure everyone must.

We’ve all done something similar from time to time – project our values or assumptions onto someone, something, or some circumstance.

In sales there is a maxim to never allow your values to cloud a transaction. You’re trying to sell something to someone and you hesitate to divulge the price because you assume that he or she will say it’s just too costly. You’ve “projected” your value system onto the other party. But just because you think something is too expensive doesn’t mean your customer will. Maybe they are accustomed to paying twice as much. How do you know?

And that, for good or ill, is projection. read more

Podcast – Vote Buying 2020 Style

by: Brent Smith

Just how much will buy your vote in 2020? How much is your vote worth? Is it as little as $10, a small bottle of liquor, or a tank of gas?

Maybe you feel your vote is worth much more. I mean – buying and selling votes is a form of voter fraud and is illegal, so if your going to sell your vote, it had better be worth it?

Certainly if someone were to offer to pay off your mortgage, that would do it. Maybe that’s a bit extravagant. So maybe pay off your car loan, or maybe, just maybe, a candidate or two might say, “vote for me and I’ll pay off your student loan debt?”

Gee, is anyone saying such a thing?

Is this then not just vote buying? read more

Video Podcast – No One Understands the Climate – No One!

by: Brent Smith

The Climate Town Hall was beyond shameless. First, CNN has shown once and for all they are no longer a news network and haven’t been for some time.

They are 100%, the propaganda ministry of the democrat party and the radical left.

These candidates all stand up in front of an audience of like-minded and vetted clapping seals and claim we have to become carbon neutral in 10 years, or 12 or 20 or by 2030 or 40 or just pick a random year, because that’s what they’re doing. Basically, do what we say or you’re all dead in X years – pick a year.

Yet there is still so much we don’t understand about changing climate that the claim by the left that, “the relationship between mankind’s emissions of greenhouse gasses and climate change is a scientific certainty,” is utter nonsense.

What happens in space and what naturally occurs on Earth has exponentially more to do with our changing climate than man’s behavior.

The fact is that our climate has been changing since the Earth developed a climate. We can’t stop it from changing and we can’t cause it to change. read more

The Left is Unhinged over Detention Facilities

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Let’s get one thing straight. The Southern border detention facilities are like Sandals Resorts compared with concentration/death/labor camps in Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia or Communist China.

And anyone who makes such an absurd comparison is a moron, who, in Nazi Germany, would have be deemed too mentally impaired to continue living. For the good of society they would have been euthanized.

Regarding the Southern border, Rush Limbaugh had a great point just yesterday, as to why the dems are hitting the conditions at these detention centers so hard. It’s because they can no longer talk about their other favorite topic – the plight of the homeless.

During both the Reagan and Bush presidencies, the left lamented regularly about the homeless situation.

Ronald Reagan was constantly blamed for American homelessness. He increased spending, “through the escalating military budget, all the while slashing funds for domestic programs that assisted working class Americans, particularly the poor.”

Decades later, Reagan was still being blamed. read more

Squishy Republicans Accept the Left’s Socialist Climate Change Hoax

from Conservative Review:

Republicans embrace socialism in climate change message

What a crock.

In an article titled, “GOP hoping voters open to warnings of Democrats’ socialism,” the Associated Press looks at Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., who has been telling town hall participants that socialism is afoot and that he wants everyone to join him in the fight against it.

The article is slanted, as most AP articles are. Its writer tried to make the point, by interviewing random people, that Republicans are stoking fear when the issue really doesn’t faze most people. The article ends with a wry warning to Republicans that crying wolf over Democrats’ socialist views might actually hurt them in 2020. read more

Video Podcast – Will Trump send Illegals to Sanctuary Cities

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Doubtless we’ve all heard of Trump’s threat to bus thousands of illegals and refugees to sanctuary cities and States. He says that they are always saying what a benefit to the community these “immigrants” are. Mayors and Governors alike claim that all should be welcome, without preconditions. The more the merrier. Immigrants are what make these cities great and all that clap-trap. The new mantra is “no human is illegal.”

So growing increasingly and understandably frustrated, Trump has decided to call the sanctuary cities on the insistence of their “come one, come all” policy.

And the left is utterly unhinged over Trump’s threat, which came without warning.

But is Trump serious about this, or is this just thrown out as a campaign issue, or other, to force the dems hand? read more

If You Don’t Support the Leftist Agenda – People Will Die

Yes, this video is almost two years old, but it’s as relevant today as it was then. And we still have the same cast of characters and the same silly issues the left continues to push. And with the 2020 presidential election heating up, you know the rhetoric will just become more hyperbolic as each candidate tries to push the envelope further to the radical left. As Rush Limbaugh says, it’s demonstrating absurdity by being absurd.

Enjoy Remy’s “People Will Die!” read more
