Not Even Exercise is Safe from Wokeness

by: Brent Smith

I don’t do yoga – never have.

The closest I got was to take a group work-out-like class to help a friend. It was basically me and bunch of women. Talk about feeling like a fish out of water.

But I do know one thing. When I was taking part in the class, I sure wish we could have injected a political discussion or two as we were in our plank position. Thank would have been great.

The Big 6 are limiting Free Speech

by: Brent Smith

Technology has proven to be a very worrisome double edged sword. On one hand, it has never been easier to disseminate your views and opinion.

You can self-publish an entire book for next to nothing, start your own news, opinion or entertainment website. You are able to “go live” on the internet whenever the spirit moves you.

But on the other hand, if your news, opinion or entertainment is somehow displeasing to the corporation providing you the platform, the corporation, not the government, is who you have to fear from them shutting you down.

It is a strange time we live in that we have to fear both the power of the government and so-called private industry. But which is to be feared most?

from the Federalist:

Is Big Business Now A Greater Threat To Free Speech Than Government?

As I wrote in a preceding essay, the First Amendment was written to limit the government’s power. In the 18th century, only the state was conceived as possibly wielding the power to keep free people from speaking their minds. Thus, if maintaining a free people requires free speech, it followed that the government must be kept from controlling speech. For a long time, no more was necessary, but that would change.

As the United States grew in population and prosperity, there was very little agitation against business. There did not need to be. Most businesses were small affairs, owned by one man or one family, employing a handful of workers. Relations between labor and management were dealt with between individuals.

In 1854, Abraham Lincoln summarized this small-scale economy, speaking of a system in which a man “may look forward and hope to be a hired laborer this year and the next, work for himself afterward, and finally to hire men to work for him! That is the true system.”

Yet as corporations grew in size and power, that “true system” changed. Instead of one apprentice negotiating with an owner, a company that employed thousands would tell workers what they would get: take it or leave it.

In response, workers began to join together in trade unions, leveling the playing field, although diminishing their own independence. The balance between workers and management was restored, but the growing power of corporations still overpowered that of individual consumers.

Antitrust and utility laws were the response, but none of this much affected the realm of free speech. There was no news monopoly — newspapers were more plentiful than today — and restrictions on the new technology of radio came from the government, not the station owners. The biggest threat to the practice of free speech remained the state.

WND Exclusive – Why corporations are getting woke and going green

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Are corporations seeing a future many of us don’t quite see yet? A future where they have to fall in line and back the “correct” social and environmental issues in order to curry favor with those who really run the world economy – the World Economic Forum (WEF)?

Is it why some 200 top corporate CEOs met in 2019? They came together, as written in Forbes, in what’s called the “Business Roundtable” to “redefine the purpose of a corporation and show the power and importance of business.”

This redefinition included the following aspirations: read more

Want to End America? Pack the Supreme Court

by: Brent Smith

No Audio version

Court Packing, or more specifically, packing of the supreme Court, is a democrat invention.

There can be no argument against this, as no Republican has ever suggested such a thing.

Only once in the history of our nation have we had more than nine supreme Court justices. read more

Shocker: CNN is in the Propaganda Business, but Academics still Trust Them

by Brent Smith:

If you still harbor the notion that CNN is in any way a legitimate news outlet, you can finally let it go. Article image

And frankly it’s worse than even the way President Trump described them – as fake news. They lost ‘fake news’ miles back. The network is and has been for many years, nothing more than the shameless propaganda department of the democrat party, and will do and say anything to advance the leftist/democrat agenda.

At least one department head admitted it, yet a professor still recommends them. read more

Leftist Hypocrite Doesn’t Want Security for Us

It’s hard to say which radical leftist political hack is the dumbest of them all. Or maybe they’re not as stupid as they act and sound, but instead try to act so woke that it just seems this way.

I might think this of some democrats, especially the older ones – the Schumers and Pelosis. Neither of them are as dimwitted as they sound, but they’re forced to bend themselves into pretzels to remain viable to the new crop of leftist democrats, some of whom really just stupid and angry. 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

Video Podcast – Republicans Propose Surrender – It’s What they Do!

by: Brent Smith

Read & React – I found this article at Breitbart. It’s about how a group of French Republicans (h/t: Mark Levin) are promoting their very own amnesty giveaway bill.

But hey – this is what Republicans do. They don’t have the spine or the will to fight for us, so they just water down the democrat proposal figuring we’ll be grateful that it doesn’t appear as bad, and then we’ll support it and them.

They use this tactic more often than not. They can’t continue to get away with this! read more

Video Podcast – Von Mises Knew Who the Dems Are

by: Brent Smith

According to the Mises Institute, Ludwig Heinrich Edler von Mises, born 1881, died 1973, was “One of the most notable economists and social philosophers of the twentieth century.”

Von Mises knew exactly who the democrats were and are today.

And I discuss his most famous quote and how applicable it to today’s democrats. 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
