Although this is a relatively long piece, as usual, the author Joy Pullmann, exhibits good incite and prescience for what lies ahead for us constitutional conservatives. It is well worth the read to the end.
After this last tumultuous year filled with pandemic scares and political malfeasance, we on the right, would sorely love to get back to our mantra of live and let live.
However, Ms. Pullmann fears, as do I and many others, that this will simply not be possible. The left will not allow it.

Democrats Are Framing Americans As Domestic Terrorists So They Can Do To Us What They Did To Trump In Spygate
Democrats have moved swiftly to use the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol mayhem to push for a frightening expansion of federal surveillance and police powers, openly smearing anyone who voted for Donald Trump as a potential terrorist.

What started out, as most thought, a relatively harmless protest group, the Black Lives Matter (BLM) group has morphed into a full-blown black separatist hate movement. They have no shame and no fear in these United States, as they know the liberal press and spineless politicians don’t dare challenge.
They have but one arrow in their quiver as a defense for their radical behavior, but know that in this current climate, it’s all they need. No one wants to be labeled a racist. Yes, the race card is all they need to inoculate themselves from backlash – and with allies like the president, why even worry.
With every gathering – with every march – we see them growing ever bolder. The latest demonstration of this arrogant boldness was the march in St. Paul at the Minnesota fair, where they chanted, “Pigs in a Blanket – fry ’em like bacon.” They have no shame and no fear.
And this ramping up of hateful rhetoric directly coincides with the recent rash of police executions – white cops, and citizens (reporter and cameraman) being slain by angry black men.
There’s no way on earth these recent murders aren’t at least partly attributable to the well advertised hatred of police by the BLM. I contend they are 100% to blame. Police officers get killed in the line of duty – but random assassinations of police like we’ve seen simply don’t occur in this country.
So, I believe it’s high time we classify the BLM as what they are, or have purposely grown into.

Maine has become only the seventh state in the union to allow its citizens to carry a concealed weapon without a permit. Well good for them. My state, New Hampshire was supposed to be the seventh, but we elected a Democrat governor, so of course she vetoed the measure passed by both State Houses.
Maine, like New Hampshire allows legal gun owners to open carry without a permit, which regular readers know is what I do.
Breitbart reported that while pushing the bill it’s author, State Sen. Eric Brakey “continually focused on how open carry without a permit was legal in Maine, but if someone put on a jacket that covered their gun, they were then required to have a permit.”
I’ve been arguing this ridiculous rule for years, having to stay ever vigilant that my sidearm isn’t covered at any time. Frankly, it’s ridiculous.
So now, at least in Maine, Wyoming, Alaska, Kansas, Montana, Vermont and Arizona, citizens can concealed carry a weapon for self-defense without first having to grovel before the government for something the Constitution grants them naturally. read more
