WND Exclusive – Neutering Electoral College Means More Vote Fraud

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Think California voter fraud is no big deal? After all, most of us don’t reside there. And it’s already a deep blue state. It’s not as if voter fraud in the Golden State could possibly affect other states – right?

NBC News – yes, NBC News — reported: “Widespread Voting Fraud Scheme Targets Los Angeles’ Homeless – Prosecutors have accused the group of 14 felonies for a variety of alleged acts during the 2016 and 2018 election cycles.”

I was stunned when I saw that leftist NBC actually broke this story, considering it was one of many mainstream media outlets that has insisted for years that there was no fraud being perpetrated by the Democrats. read more

WND Exclusive – THERE’S NOTHING SACRED ABOUT ‘PRECEDENT’

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

We constitutional conservatives agree that precedent is rarely a good thing.

Beyond the crafting of our original documents and some, but not all, constitutional amendments, I can think of no precedent that has ended other than badly for America.

Oftentimes precedents begin innocently enough and with supposed good intentions. But once that framework has been set, or that foundation laid, more often than not those with less than good intentions are free to cite the original to justify building upon it.

And so it will be for us if President Trump decides to set a precedent and declare a national emergency on our Southern border. I don’t just mean in order to procure some funds for the wall, which for months has been tied up in the courts. Hardly earth-shattering. I mean a full-blown national emergency declaration, shutting the border down, as he threatened to do. read more

WND Exclusive – Trump Draws Thousands, Dems Can’t Draw Flies

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Trump kicked off his reelection campaign with an oversized rally in Orlando, Florida, this past Tuesday. The Amway Center Arena, with a capacity of around 20,000, was filled to the rafters.

As various news agencies reported, people started lining up outside the facility up to 40 hours in advance. This type of loyalty is only reserved for major rock stars and once in a lifetime movie events. Certainly not for politicians, and most definitely not for second-termers.

But President Trump has been attracting these kinds of crowds for years now, and it appears his popularity has not waned. read more

WND Exclusive – IS DESPOTISM IN OUR FUTURE?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Other than Uncle Joe Biden, it seems that every other presidential candidate has crossed over from being liberal to full-blown socialist. And many on the right are surprised at this. Many seem surprised at how fast we are descending from a free and liberty-loving society to one that gives every appearance of emulating Venezuela.

But that could never happen here – right? Of course not – although not too long ago Venezuela was one of the most prosperous nations on Earth. But hey, as the saying goes: they just haven’t done socialism right. Seems no one has.

For years, we conservatives complained about Obama, saying that he was a lawless president, he was despotic, that we’ve never seen anyone like him. How did he ever get elected? read more

WND Exclusive – WHAT ABOUT AMENDING THE 2ND AMENDMENT?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

The Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution to prevent government infringement on our natural rights as Americans. It was designed to prevent government the ability to bestow and therefore rescind the rights of the individual.

To that, there was an interesting and thought-provoking article in the Washington Post recently. I’m not sure I’ve ever uttered those words in the same sentence: thought-provoking and Washington Post.

As I rarely peruse the pages of the Post, I must thank Jazz Shaw at HotAir.com for bringing it to our attention. read more

WND Exclusive – What about the Sea Turtles’ ‘Reproductive Rights’?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Sea turtles, and their eggs and hatchlings, are protected in Florida by some very strict laws and regulations. They are also protected under the 1973 federal Endangered Species Act.

Every two to four years, sea turtles make the long journey to Florida beaches to lay their eggs in the warm sand, where they are sheltered by these various laws and regulatory edicts. Simply put, one cannot possess, disturb, mutilate, destroy, sell, transfer, molest, or harass marine turtles, nests or eggs. Protection is also afforded to marine turtle habitat.

In other words, there are absolutely no exceptions to taking the life of an unborn sea turtle. read more

WND Exclusive – So Just What is a High Crime and Misdemeanor?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Libertarian Rep. Justin Amash is a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, a fiscal hawk and has a Conservative Review Liberty Score of 90, which is excellent.

So what does all this conservatism have to do with Amash’s recent call for the impeachment of President Trump? In other words, what does one have to do with the other? Well … absolutely nothing. But some “conservative” websites mean to somehow equate the two.

As a general rule, I don’t like calling out another conservative site, particularly as I often quote them. But the Washington Examiner’s piece entitled, “Get mad at Justin Amash all you want, but he’s still the biggest fiscal conservative,” tries to do just that. read more

WND Exclusive – Justice Kavanaugh Will Only Drift Left From Here

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

I can’t quite figure out what Rush Limbaugh is up to regarding the recent Supreme Court ruling by Justice Brett Kavanaugh. I can’t figure out whether Rush is being critical of Kavanaugh, or instead trying to give a veiled excuse for his recent siding with the anti-constitutionalists on the court.

Normally, it’s easy to know exactly where Rush stands on any topic or event. It’s easy because he’s so predictably conservative and constitutional.

But Limbaugh has been noticeably different since Trump was elected. Although there is no doubt of Trump’s love of country and his desire to put America first, it’s also common knowledge that he is not an ideological conservative or advocate for small, limited and less expensive government. He just wants the U.S. citizen to get their money’s worth. This is and will continue to be a bone of contention for us constitutionalists. read more

WND Exclusive – Cory Booker Out-Lefts the Rest on Gun Control

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Another hard-left presidential candidate has announced a number of whacky gun control measures. Cory Booker, former virtue signaling mayor of Newark and boyfriend of radical leftist actress and activist Rosario Dawson, has joined another non-viable candidate, Eric Swalwell, in setting gun control as a major platform agenda.

Swalwell wishes to ban, “hand-held weapons of war. We should ban possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons, we should buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the law, and we should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons.” He also claims that, “Our courts haven’t found a constitutional right to have assault weapons, anyway.”

What do you even say to something that inane? read more

WND Exclusive – VENEZUELA: REPLACING 1 SOCIALIST WITH ANOTHER

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

What should we make of the situation in Venezuela? Is this really something the United States should be involved in, or is it just another in a string of American buttinskies, injecting ourselves into a nation’s internal struggle?

While many on the right are cheering the most recent coup attempt to overthrow the current Thug-in-Chief, Nicholas Maduro, by Juan Guaidó, I’m beginning to wonder if it’s just another case of replacing the devil we know with the devil we don’t. read more
