  • House Democrats’ ‘Anti-Hate’ Resolution Is A Stress Test For Criminalizing Their Opposition

    The House recently passed a non-binding resolution that condemns hate and bigotry in response to Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic statements, citing a broad range of victimized groups, including Jews and Muslims. It doesn’t include white Christians—a stark and significant omission. The resolution is not a bill that will be sent to the president to sign. No legal weight is attached to it. It is merely a motion that allows members of Congress to show they oppose hate, even as they refuse to call out and punish individual politicians for their particular violations. More than 20 Republicans refused to sign the...

    Judge Jeanine's Pirro's inquiry is 100 percent legit and she has every right to make it. Fox News, on the other hand, shows cowardice by not defending its hosts when they ask tough questions and raise sensitive issues. It's their job. Fox has refused to discuss Judge Jeanine Pirro and whether her absence is temporary or permanent. That is also a shame, as loyal viewers deserve better. When Americans are standing up to the status quo, Fox folds like an accordion to pressure from the politically correct left. Too many talented conservatives have been dismissed from Fox News because the...

    The nation is focused on foreign influence on American politics in any number of ways. The issues range from the discredited witch hunt directed at President Trump, the prosecution of Paul Manafort for failure to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), congressional investigations into whether Russians used social media to influence elections, Chinese spyware, Representative Ilhan Omar's hostile statements about lawmakers' alleged dual loyalty to Israel, and whether green groups are acting as unregistered foreign agents to the recent announcement by the Justice Department of plans to step up FARA investigations and even the larger debate about whether...

    Subtitle: Render the Constitution Enforceable. While we enjoy yet another year of the Trump Renaissance, we should still consider the future. One thing is certain. The Trump era ends no later than January 20th 2025. Then what? Shall we risk our Liberty on replacing President Trump with another person of superior public virtue The horrid fact remains that Congress is but a shadow of its 1787 design. Most members would gladly never cast another recorded vote if it ensured reelection. As a consequence, Congress, through both neglect and assignment, watches without complaint the drift of its powers to the executive...

    RUSH: That’s right. That’s right. I’m telling you, I think it’s a crock what these guys are doing in there, trying to say, “No, we can’t let the president have his emergency declaration power because the Democrats might abuse it when they get there.” The Democrats might abuse it? The Democrats are abuse! The Democrats in their natural state is abuse of the Constitution. Somebody explain to me how it is that the president has the power to tell an American company to ground one of its products. “I, Donald Trump, am telling Boeing that they’ve got put the 737...

    Washington, DC – -( It’s been said quite often that Republicans are the “Stupid Party.”Well, the party of stupid has struck again, and “Exhibit A” is the Republican Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee — Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.Based on what Graham is doing, one would think he’s planning to forfeit control of the Senate to the Democrats and to lose the White House in 2020. Because he is holding a hearing to promote the nastiest form of Bloomberg-sponsored gun control.As it turns out, Graham and his new “best buddy,” anti-gun zealot Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), are scheduling...

    Medium ^ | 13MAR19 | Nolan Gray via
    From ancient Greece to Renaissance Italy to the Four Asian Tigers, city-states have always punched above their weight. They’ve driven culture forward, facilitated global commerce, and charged ahead of their nation-bound peers.Indeed, cities  - and the metropolitan regions that orbit around them  -  make sense as a political and economic unit. The key services we depend on government to do, from building infrastructure to ensuring public safety, are mostly handled by cities. And contrary to earlier predictions, the forces of globalization and the rise of the information economy have only made cities more important as economic engines and innovation hubs. It’s no surprise,...

    The Blue Press ^ | April, 2019 | Alan Korwin
    Officials promoting so-called "red-flag laws" should be evaluated for fitness to serve. Why? Because their so called "extreme protection orders" are blatant constitutional violations and have no place in an American system of justice. This much is obvious. Empowering your neighbors, roommates, former lovers, relatives or people who have a grudge against you to use armed police to attack you, without warning or probable cause, does you serious criminal harm and must be stopped cold. Encouraging the public to "red flag" each other is what dictators did in the Soviet Union, communist China and elsewhere. Leftist sympathizers in America are...

    House Democrats just passed some of the most sweeping and sneaky anti-Second Amendment legislation in decades.H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019, and H.R. 1112, the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2019, are two Trojan horse bills that seek to impose onerous restrictions on gun sales under the pretense of preventing dangerous criminals from obtaining firearms.National gun registries, endless background screenings, and prohibitive wait times are what these bills are all about. They represent a concerted effort to discourage Americans from buying, selling, or owning a firearm.While neither of these bills would do anything to stop gun violence,...

    On a recent Sunday evening in New Haven, Connecticut, a visiting priest gave a homily about the importance of Christian love. The gospel reading was Luke 6:27: “But I say to you that listen, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. If anyone strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also…”In an age of political tribalism and social media, the priest reminded us that it is all too tempting to give in to the temptation of striking back at your enemies. But the duty...

    democrats voted to allow the murder of children. Of course, they won't call it that. Senate Democrats on Monday blocked a Republican bill that would have threatened prison time for doctors who don't try saving the life of infants born alive during failed abortions, leading conservatives to wonder openly whether Democrats were embracing "infanticide" to appeal to left-wing voters.All prominent Democratic 2020 presidential hopefuls in the Senate voted down the measure, including Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. The final vote was 53-44 to...

    Not living one’s faith can become a threat to religious liberty, Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., said while speaking on a panel Thursday at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “One of the greatest challenges we have to religious liberty in this modern day is people that actually claim a faith and don’t live a faith,” Lankford said. “Having a culture that is a vibrant culture of faith for people that not only have a faith, but they choose to live it, matters in our culture.” “There are a whole group of people that say you can have a faith—just leave it...

    Truth Based Logic ^ | March 1, 2019 | William Flax
    We do not claim that all questions of American Constitutional Law are easily settled; that there is always an easy answer to what the Constitution allows; or to what it requires, or what it forbids. But there are obvious answers on some points. There are clearly defined functions mandated; others, clearly forbidden; as well as an overriding functional purpose. Yet nothing could be clearer than the fact that a Federal tax on wealth is totally contrary to both the letter & spirit of the Constitution of the United States.

    Facebook has been shutting down traffic to conservative websites since the 2016 election. Conservatives dominated social media in 2016 where they were able to get the truth uncensored. Facebook ended that in 2017 and 2018. The Gateway Pundit spoke with two of the top conservative publishers in America. Floyd Brown is a conservative author, speaker and media commentator. In 2008 Floyd launched Western Journal which quickly became one of the top conservative websites in America. By 2016 Floyd’s organization of Western Journal and other conservative websites under his umbrella had more than a billion page views. Since 2016 Floyd’s organization...

    When did a republic extricate itself from imminent tyranny through the election of better or more virtuous people? Perhaps Article V opponents will point to the election of President Trump. There’s no doubt that he is a reprieve, but a reprieve is just that, a temporary interruption, a finger in the dike to the tide of tyranny.1 Can we somehow do likewise with Congress and Scotus? Just elect better congressmen and senators who in turn will only consent to conservative judges? Is it reasonable to believe we can do with Congress in the future what we haven’t done since the...

    Professional journalism groups reacted with alarm after Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas released an opinion Tuesday urging the high court to reconsider a landmark freedom of the press decision called New York Times v. Sullivan. The Sullivan ruling generally shields reporters and news platforms from libel or defamation lawsuits provided they were acting in good faith. Though journalists believe that protection is essential, Justice Thomas said the high court was wrong to usurp the role of states in regulating libel. “[Sullivan] and the Court’s decisions extending it were policy-driven decisions masquerading as constitutional law,” Thomas’s opinion reads. “We should not...
