Video Podcast – Faux-Females to Ruin Olympics – New S.C. required Student Reading

Olympic Athletes train for two goals. First to be chosen by your country to represent them, and second to bring home a medal – preferably Gold. And to do this they train most of their lives to get this one shot at being the best. One Shot! And then some guy who thinks he’s a girl is allowed in to undercut the real womens’ life-long dream. That’s seems fair!

The South Carolina Reinforcing College Education on America’s Constitutional Heritage (REACH) Act requires students, at a minimum, to read the United States Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and Emancipation Proclamation in their entireties, as well as “a minimum of five essays in their entirety from the Federalist Papers” and “one or more documents that are foundational to the African American Freedom struggle.”

Well Hooray for South Carolina! read more

WND Exclusive – 2nd Amendment: What does ‘bear Arms’ really mean?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Well, our vaunted United States Supreme Court has agreed to take up a case regarding the Second Amendment.

This is pretty uncommon, but it does happen – mostly because the Supremes over the years haven’t dared to actually do their jobs to the fullest, so their decisions seem to encompass a narrow scope and half-measures, never fully putting to bed that the Second Amendment clearly gives the right of an individual to “keep,” which means to own, and “bear,” which means to carry, arms on one’s person.

The Second Amendment makes no distinction between open and concealed carry, and thus any argument against either is moot. Nor does it make mention of licenses and/or permits, which is what this upcoming case is about, so these, too, are moot. read more

Is the Bill of Rights Absolute?

by: Brent Smith

Scroll Down for Audio Version

When speaking about the Second Amendment, Lunchbox Joe Biden recently said that “no amendment is absolute.”

Well Lunchbox. If you mean that amendments are not perfect and not beyond change – then you’re right. But if Joe, or whoever wrote what Joe was reading, means that amendments can just be restricted or limited by a single executive’s edict, by legislative action, or just ignored all together, he is dead wrong.

And we all know what he means. It’s the latter, not the former. read more

We Must Adhere to America’s Rulebook

by: Brent Smith

What does it mean when we on the right describe ourselves as conservatives? What is it that we are trying so hard to save, preserve or prevent the loss of – which is what to conserve means.

Those on the left would say we wish to conserve the days of slavery and Jim Crow – or maybe the white-old days of the 1950s before the Civil Rights movement.

Despite the fact that all those bad times were born of the left in this country, we conservatives wish to reestablish and conserve America’s original set of governing rules.

Our nation was founded on a set of ideals – the Declaration of Independence, and rules – the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Yet Americans today seem only to care, and demand absolute adherence to some rules, while all but ignoring others. read more

WND Exclusive – Is there still a right to bear the Constitution?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Many Americans suffer from a common phobia. No, it’s not the very reasonable fear we are living now, of Democrats running the country. That’s not a phobia, for its not irrational.

No, they suffer from an irrational fear of guns. Guns are not inherently scary. They are just a tool – like a screwdriver or a leaf blower. You’ve heard the saying, the right tool for the right job. You wouldn’t use a gun to blow the leaves around your yard and thus you wouldn’t use a leaf blower to defend yourself. You could try, but I’ll bet it won’t go well.

Yet over the years more and more citizens have been purposely conditioned to think guns are scary “weapons of war.” On a weekly basis, we hear of one after another proposed piece of gun-curtailing legislation coming from the left. read more

Is America Still the Best Mankind has to Offer?

by: Brent Smith

Is America still the place of our founder’s vision? Is it still the home of the ideals of freedom, liberty, and God-given inalienable rights?

And in case anyone needs a refresher on what inalienable rights mean; they are rights which are incapable of being denied or taken away. Nor can they be even temporarily rescinded or abridged – you know – for our safety and security.

I’ve been pondering this question for a little while now, but only tangentially. I haven’t really delved into it until recently hearing Steve Deace of the Blaze mention it.

Many of us, for probably most or all of our adult lives, have exclaimed how much we love America, and how proud we are to be American. Count me as one of them. I’ve been as patriotic as any.

But recently I’ve begun to question my resolve, my continued insistence of just how proud I am. read more

WND Exclusive – A Brief History of the Insidious Income Tax

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

As we are knee-deep in tax season, I thought it might be useful to explain why Americans aren’t rioting over the size of the ever-ballooning national debt and yearly federal budget deficit – how Washington is taxing and spending us into oblivion and yet we just don’t seem to care.

One of the reasons is surely that many Americans don’t feel they have skin in the game. read more

Video Podcast – Advancing of the Speech Police

by: Brent Smith

Today I discuss a bill that is being proposed in Kentucky, by a Republican, which will make it a crime, a Class B misdemeanor, if they (protesters or rioters), “accost, insult, taunt, or challenge a law enforcement officer with offensive or derisive words, or by gestures or other physical contact, that would have a direct tendency to provoke a violent response from the perspective of a reasonable and prudent person.”

Well isn’t that vague and ridiculous, lumping in words with violent acts. How convenient. And isn’t it always the way. Bad policy always begins with well-meaning Republicans, unable to comprehend the slippery slope they put us on, as not-well-meaning leftists eventually get a hold of it. read more

Oklahoma Introduces itself to the 10th Amendment

by: Brent Smith

Fancy that. One (maybe two – North Dakota) out of 50 States has the intelligence and the courage to actually follow the rules.

The other 49 (48) are unaware of what Oklahoma is proposing, complete ignoramuses, going to take a wait-and-see approach, or don’t give a crap what the rule book says. They’re going to do whatever they want and are content to let the feds run roughshod over them, providing they’re working toward the same tyrannical ends.

The rule book being the United States Constitution. It is technically still the rule book, right?

The 10th Amendment is the cornerstone of federalism. It reads as follows: read more

Thank you Wokepublicans for Jumping Ship

by: Brent Smith

Isn’t it nice to see so many Republican rats fleeing a Sinking Ship? And I’m not being facetious. I really am thankful.

There’s only one problem though. The ship isn’t sinking. It’s listing a little, but that’s okay.

The Trump anti-woke, real-America freedom ship is only a half mile from port and will soon set in where it will be transferred to dry dock to be refitted and will re-launch at a later date.

What will its assigned mission be? As yet, no one knows. But whatever it is, it will have a profound effect on the political landscape. read more
