    The Constitutional Conservatives ^ | January 23, 2021 | Daniel John Sobieski
    Remember when the liberals were warning us that Donald Trump was a dictator ot about to become one? We were told his attacks on “fake news” had a “chilling effect” on freedom of the press, that his suggestion that the National Guard be used to restore order as riots raged unchecked following the death of George Floyd was an illegal use of the military, that any invocation of the Insurrection Act was unconstitutional, and that his border wall was a monument to racist tyranny. Townhall.Com reminds us of just a few of the examples: It’s Berlin 1933 all over again,...

    Dr. James Lindsay, an American-born author and political commentator, called the “woke” ideology and movement embraced by Black Lives Matter organizations and other left-wing activists “Leninism 4.0.” “Now we have the attempt to apply Leninism to the American context, using corporations as part of the toolset, for example. And so we call this movement the ‘woke’ movement. We talked about woke capital with all the corporations … the woke movement is Leninism 4.0,” Lindsay told Jan Jekielek, host of The Epoch Times’ American Thoughts Leaders program on Jan. 13. Lindsay explained that the first 3 versions or flavors of Leninism...

Pew obtained the data from a questionnaire conducted by CQ Roll Call asking members about their religious backgrounds. The publication of the Pew report came just one day after the 117th Congress was sworn into session on Jan. 3. Pew has been analyzing...

    SAINT PAUL, MN—With Democrats in control of Congress, Americans are looking forward to seeing their elected representatives put the needs of the American people first. Democrats have responded by pursuing the one thing every American affected by devastating lockdowns needs: another Trump impeachment. According to experts, there are millions of struggling Americans-- many of whom are completely destitute-- wondering where their next Trump impeachment is coming from. Local unemployed waitress and single mother Alissa Martins spoke to reporters, saying she is "very happy" about this development.

    Many Americans are very upset that President-elect Joe Biden will replace President Donald Trump. For most of them, it's not that they will miss Trump's unconventional and often unacceptable behavior. Instead, it's that they fear that the size and scope of government will grow so fast that it will permanently change the country they love. And this fear has intensified with the defeat of two Republican senators in the Georgia runoffs, resulting in Democrats regaining control of the Senate. At the margin, such a worry is justified. With 50 Democratic senators and control of both the House of Representatives and...

    President-elect Joe Biden is expected to unveil a major Covid-19 relief package on Thursday and his advisers have recently told allies in Congress to expect a price tag in the ballpark of $2 trillion, according to two people briefed on the deliberations. The Biden team is taking a "shoot for the moon" approach with the package, one lawmaker in close contact with them told CNN, though they added that the price tag could still change. The proposal will include sizable direct payments to American families, significant state and local funding -- including for coronavirus vaccine distribution and other emergency spending...

    Freshman congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene said she will attempt to impeach President-elect Joe Biden for abuse of power once he is sworn into office. The Georgia Republican, who has raised eyebrows for boosting conspiracy theories, announced the long-shot move Wednesday evening on Newsmax, just hours after the House voted to impeach President Trump for inciting an insurrection. “I would like to announce on the behalf of the American people we have to make sure that our leaders are held accountable,” Greene said. She claimed Biden is “willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily...

"Remember, you must show your official congressperson identification to prove you're an approved looter to get in here. Unauthorized looters will be removed from Capitol grounds."

Yes, brethren – Congress has opened with a prayer to a demonic Hindu God. Almost six years ago, NYC celebrated the killing of the innocent babies by shining the image of Hindu Goddess KALI – Goddess of Destruction; also known as “The Dark one” and “She who is Death.

    Rep. Alex Mooney (R-W.Va.) on Jan. 11 blocked Democrats from introducing a resolution via unanimous consent to call on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump. The Democrat-backed resolution calls on Pence and the Cabinet to “declare what is obvious to a horrified Nation: That the President is unable to successfully discharge the duties and powers of his office.” Democrats can now bring the resolution up for a vote on Jan. 12 on the resolution. Last week, Mooney was among the Republican lawmakers who didn’t vote to certify key states for President-elect Joe...
