  • The Prospects of a Constitutional Convention

    10/03/2016 5:30:38 AM PDT · by rktman · 22 replies ^ | 10/3/2016 | Bruce Walker
    Regardless of the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, our republic needs a powerful redress against the unconstitutional usurpation of power by the federal government and particularly by the Supreme Court and the president. Restoring federalism is the answer to every significant problem in our republic because federalism produces the marketplace of governments that reward states with honest, efficient, and unobtrusive and which drives wealth and voters out of leftist nanny states. While Republicans at the federal level ought to embrace and to push this agenda, the narcotic of federal government power and printing presses makes it hard for any...

    To get this out to you right away and because Concetta has been non-stop on the phone, she has asked me to send this email out to let everyone know about the decision to postpone the Convention until sometime in October, of course not to conflict with the Western Gala. The situation in Charlotte is very unfortunate, however not as bad as the media is portraying. Our hotel is not in Center City, it’s about 6 or more city blocks away from the location of the incidents last night. That being said, with the uncertainty of what might play out...

    Do you know what today is? Saturday, September 17, is of course a very important and underappreciated occasion which I believe should be a national holiday -- Constitution Day, the anniversary of the adoption of the U.S. Constitution in 1787. But it was on this date, September 14, that one of the most important provisions came into being, thanks to George Mason. It was Article V. "The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call...

    Video about the possible use of seat-fillers at the 2016 Democrat Convention in Philadelphia. Normal seeming people, including a DNC delegate, talk on camera making the case that huge numbers of delegates left the convention. Empty seats were filled with paid actors. One delegate asserts that people present in the convention hall are portrayed as Bernie delegates but are again, paid actors. He notes he does not recognize these "new" people and doesn't believe they are delegates. Another man notes that the hall was extremely empty until paid actors showed up en masse and films the empty seats on his...

    Julian Assange will be addressing the Green Party Convention on Saturday morning. Assange has been heavily involved in the U.S. elections this year, with WikiLeaks’ releasing damaging emails that showed officials in the Democratic party worked against Bernie Sanders’ campaign during the primary.

    Conventions aren't that complicated, really. It's the beginning of the general election push, the formalization of a party's candidate and a chance for that candidate to make a pitch to a broad range of voters expected to come to the polls in November. It's four days of non-stop press attention, watched by millions of people. And yet another poll released on Monday suggests that Donald Trump blew it.

    Environmentalists should be pleased with Hillary Clinton's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night, because it was largely recycled talking points we have heard for decades. Putting aside the theatrics designed to make Hillary Clinton appear to be something she is not -- the white pantsuit was a nice touch, as white is traditionally the color of purity and also the color of the suffragettes -- we've heard it all before. First there was the charge that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump cannot be trusted with the nuclear codes. The same was said about Ronald Reagan in 1980....

    What kind of political party forgets the American flag? Seriously. How can you gather to nominate a candidate for president of the United States, in the city of our nation’s birth, and forget the American flag? I’m talking about the Democratic National Convention. On Monday, as Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren spoke, as amnesty for illegal aliens was demanded, there was no American flag. As Cory Booker quoted the words of the Pledge of Allegiance, it took Republicans watching at home to notice – and care – that the symbol of our Union and nation was absent. It’s in every...

    California’s racially charged all-Democrat Senate race has spilled onto the Democratic National Convention as the candidates continued to feud over President Obama’s endorsement of one over the other. Attorney General Kamala Harris, the recipient of Mr. Obama’s blessing, said Monday that she thought Rep.

Ms. Harris is black and Ms. Sanchez Hispanic. “I find it very troubling, and I think that that is not the voice or perspective of a leader,” Ms. Harris told Fox11 in Los Angeles. “Especially in these times, where...

Democrats procure flags for convention stage after embarrassing oversight leaves Old Glory missing from Monday night's festivities After slogging through a boisterous convention on the floor, Democrats were forced to make a last-minute adjustment to the on-stage decor, after a report pointed out there were no American flags present. Democrats unveiled a sleek stage to the nation Monday, after the convention had been in the works for months. As speaker after speaker took the stage, screens behind them produced stunning scenery of the country and cool grey backgrounds.

    Many of those inspired by Sen. Bernie Sanders' insurgent campaign are now unwilling or reluctant to fall into line with his pleas to support Clinton. Chants of "Bernie!", and boos whenever Hillary Clinton’s name was mentioned, filled the opening hours of the Democratic National Convention, with delegates supporting Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) of Vermont repeatedly drowning out other speakers with their vocal dissent. Never mind that after the weekend’s Wikileaks scandal revealed bias against Senator Sanders, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) issued a formal apology, forced the resignation of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and moved Senator Sanders’ speech to...

Among notable speakers during the evening session of the convention, Trump was extremely popular. Major speakers such as New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker...

    It's common for presidential candidates to get a bump from their conventions, and two new polls Monday suggest Donald Trump did indeed get that. But the new polls don't just show Trump's stock rising (however temporarily that may be); they also have some very bad news for Hillary Clinton and her already-declining personal image. Indeed, politically, she's doing as bad as she ever has — if not worse.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whose stewardship of the DNC has been under fire through most of the presidential primary process, will not have a major speaking role in an effort "to keep the peace" in the party, a Democrat familiar with the decision said. The revelation comes following the release of nearly 20,000 emails. One email appears to show DNC staffers asking how they...
