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

WND Exclusive – Trump supporters are the ‘Rodney Dangerfield’ of America

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Scores of conservatives and I have said for many years that Republicans (not conservatives – they’re not the same) would rather lose elections and become the permanent minority party than have to throw-in with us trailer park, constitutional rabble.

And it’s true. The spineless, stand-for-nothing Republican Party really does believe that we true conservatives are an inferior breed. Not that we’re necessarily bad people, it’s that we have conviction, we stand for something, have principles, values and won’t compromise them at the drop of a hat. In other words, we just don’t get how things are done, etc.

Then I asked myself – what does this remind me of? read more

2020 Has Been a Banner Year for Liars, Cowards and Scoundrels

by: Brent Smith

The year 2020 will likely go down in the annals of American history as indeed one of our worst – at least until 2021.

A lot of the anguish can be laid square at the feet of democrats – national, State and local. The interminable COVID lockdowns, shutdowns and ridiculous edicts by leftist Governors and Mayors have done immeasurable and in many cases permanent harm to businesses and families.

And of course, the theft of a national election.

But, as Scott McKay points out in the following article, it’s not all the fault of leftists and democrats – one in the same these days.

Republicans, mostly State legislatures, have sat by in cowardly silence and allowed their democrat counterparts in various executive branches to run roughshod over State after State – succumbing to COVID panic-porn and illegally changing election rules to suit the left. read more

Video Podcast – Of Impeachment Lessons Learned and Warnings

by: Brent Smith

Most of us have heard and know of Alexis de Tocqueville, the famous French philosopher and political theorist and author of “Democracy in America.”

During his time in America, in the 1830s, he made a lot of observations about our country.

Here are just two:

“There are many men of principle in both parties in America, but there is no party of principle, ” and in 1835 he said: “A decline of public morals in the United States will probably be marked by the abuse of the power of impeachment as a means of crushing political adversaries or ejecting them from office.”

And that’s we stand right now, and what I’ll be discussing. read more

Don’t Cave on the Constitution

The beginning of the end of the Second Amendment

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

I agree with the President on most things, but I can’t on this.

We’ve been hearing, ad nauseum, that polling suggests that the public supports universal background checks and greater gun restrictions. And we’ve not only been hearing this from democrats, but also from Republicans.

So now I guess we’ve given up on protection and defense of the Constitution and will be governed by the whims of the people and politicians?

It reminds of what the father of the modern progressive movement, president Woodrow Wilson said.  (I hate that guy!) “The Constitution was founded on the law of gravitation. The government was to exist and move by virtue of the efficacy of ‘checks and balances.’ The trouble with the theory is that government is not a machine, but a living thing. No living thing can have its organs offset against each other, as checks, and live.”

This was the beginning of the “living, breathing,” Constitution. That musty old document was fine for its day, but it should not have been built on immovable bedrock. Instead it should be built on sand so that it may move and shift with the changing times.

President Trump and the Republicans have expressed openness to a federal red flag law and for “meaningful” background checks. read more

Squishy Republicans Accept the Left’s Socialist Climate Change Hoax

from Conservative Review:

Republicans embrace socialism in climate change message

What a crock.

In an article titled, “GOP hoping voters open to warnings of Democrats’ socialism,” the Associated Press looks at Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., who has been telling town hall participants that socialism is afoot and that he wants everyone to join him in the fight against it.

The article is slanted, as most AP articles are. Its writer tried to make the point, by interviewing random people, that Republicans are stoking fear when the issue really doesn’t faze most people. The article ends with a wry warning to Republicans that crying wolf over Democrats’ socialist views might actually hurt them in 2020. read more

Trump Suffers from Bad Advice

from Erick Erickson’s The Resurgent:

President Trump Did, In Fact, Get Betrayed by Congressional Republicans

The reality is that President Trump and the Republicans held the Congress for two years and did jack about a border wall. The reality is also that Republicans in Congress kept telling the President to wait. And on two occasions they got the President to move forward in ways that got him in trouble with his own base. First was the DACA deal in February of last year and second was the end of the year deal.

Congressional Republicans gave the President bad advice and ultimately did nothing to help him in his shutdown fight. They waited and waited and then let him know they were surrendering. It was Bob Dole all over again. read more

MLK and Many Black Leaders were Republicans

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

At the beginning of the week, I wrote, in honor of MLK Day, that Dr. King undoubtedly supported a secure Southern border. You Image result for MLK was Republicanmay review it here.

Unsurprisingly, I got a little flack for it from a few on the left.

Yet I don’t know why it’s so surprising. It’s no more a revelation than that Dr. King was a Republican. According to his niece, Dr. Alveda King, MLK was Republican.

This should be a surprise to no one who knows the unvarnished history of America – who advocated for black Americans and who didn’t.

Somehow history has been rewritten. Check that. We know how. I believe it can be traced back to the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., for before that time, most blacks were Republicans, and for good reason.

But we’ve been taught that the Democrats are the party of civil rights, of minority empowerment and Republicans are racists. It’s irrefutable! read more

2019 – The Year of Never-Ending War

More Latinos Support the GOP – And There’s Room to Grow Further

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

President Trump’s popularity among voters has remained relatively consistent over the past couple of years. The haters on the left are baffled by this.

They don’t like it, but I think they’ve accepted the loyalty to and adoration of him by his hard-core supporters. It’s the others they don’t get. Why hasn’t he lost these voters?

Speaking for myself and many like me, we haven’t abandoned him because we’ve successfully been able to separate his policies from his antics.

And they don’t like this either, but the left may also be coming to accept this phenomenon.

What they can’t understand, accept or even tolerate is the support he has garnered among some minority groups. And worse is the fact that it has not waned. read more
