This is What a Real Constitutional Crisis Looks Like

For as long as Donald Trump remains president, democrats will not stop trying to remove him from office. They will never admit defeat and will never cease trying to undermine the president at every step.

And, because of this, a new precedent has been set in the political arena. We said early on in Trump’s presidency, that everyone will eventually be forced to pick a side. Neutral bystanders will no longer be allowed to exist. Partisanship will be forced upon all the citizenry.

Shortly after Trump was elected, the attacks on him started to ramp up. So nakedly egregious is the injustice of the left, that people who were not previously Trump supporters, are beginning to come to his defense.

At first, many conservatives defended Trump regarding policy alone, but now, it’s just full-throated defense of a president who deserves none of the slings and arrows being hurled his way. The attacks are so virulent that they now threaten our republic. The attacks against Trump are no longer just directed at him, but at the very office itself.

This, if the left is at all interested, is what a real constitutional crisis looks like. read more

On Thursday, I posted an article entitled, “The Bill of Rights is Missing an Amendment.”

I began by explaining that we do not have three “separate but equal” branches of government – that the federal judiciary, or Judicial Branch of the federal government, is by far the most powerful and influential branch of the three. The other two are of course the Executive and Legislative.

To this, I had an interesting, yet confusing comment on my YouTube channel regarding my assertion, which is a fact, not an assertion. The commentor stated: “I don’t know why you think the supreme Court is so powerful…” At first I thought they must be kidding, but I don’t think so.

The supreme Court has become the ultimate arbiter of every law and every right in America. Their authority is not to be questioned and their rulings are final and should not be challenged, not withstanding a few dreadful decisions from yesteryear. read more
