  • Constitutional Amendment to Prevent Supreme Court Packing Resurfaces

    Epoch Times ^ | 01/24/2021 | Matthew Vadum
    Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) introduced legislation on Jan. 22 to amend the U.S. Constitution to limit the Supreme Court to nine justices, the numerical cap that has been in place for well over a century, in order to prevent Democrats from enlarging the court’s membership. Amending the Constitution is no easy task. The amendment bill must pass by two-thirds supermajority in both houses of Congress and then be ratified by three-quarters of the states, or 38 of the 50 states, to become part of the Constitution. The move comes after then-President Donald Trump’s conservative constitutionalist nominee, Amy Coney Barrett,...

    Like many American business owners, Donald Trump took a huge financial hit in COVID America in the past year. But since leaving office, we’re getting a look at how much worse things have gotten for him.At the White House, Trump worked for free, donating his $400,000 yearly salary to charities and government programs. In civilian life, his companies, run by his kids while he was in the White House, were bleeding money, according to financial disclosure forms he filed before leaving office.The Washington Post reported:Financial disclosure forms … revealed that his hotels, resorts and other properties had lost more than...

  • Growing number of GOP senators oppose impeachment trial

    Breitbart ^ | 24 Jan 21 | AP
    WASHINGTON (AP) — A growing number of Republican senators say they oppose holding an impeachment trial, a sign of the dimming chances that former President Donald Trump will be convicted on the charge that he incited a siege of the U.S. Capitol. House Democrats, who will walk the impeachment charge of “incitement of insurrection” to the Senate on Monday evening, are hoping that strong Republican denunciations of Trump after the Jan. 6 riot will translate into a conviction and a separate vote to bar Trump from holding office again. But GOP passions appear to have cooled since the insurrection, and...
  • States Eye Allowing Concealed Carry of Guns Without a Permit

    Republican lawmakers in several more states want to loosen gun restrictions by allowing people to carry concealed firearms without having to get a permit, continuing a trend that gun control advocates call dangerous. Fifteen states already allow concealed carry without a permit, and lawmakers in nine others have proposed allowing or expanding the practice. GOP governors are backing the changes in Utah and Tennessee. Another bill expanding permitless carry in Montana has passed the state House. Against that backdrop, the efforts to loosen concealed carry requirements are a frightening trend for Shannon Watts, founder of the gun control group Moms...

    Glenn Kessler and his Washington Post “Fact Checker” squad celebrated their end-of-term count of President Trump’s “false and misleading statements” – 30,573. Their level of aggression clearly increased as the term went on, since they announced on January 21, 2019 they had arrived at 8,158 of those – or 26.7 percent of the four-year total. Shelby Talcott of the Daily Caller put the Post on the record explaining what we all could expect: there will be no False & Misleading Claims count for President Biden: Trump’s departure also equals an end to having a false claims project for the current...

    With the fraudulent election of the Chicom bought-and-paid-for criminal and Manchurian candidate Joe Biden, and his evil sidekick, Kamala Harris, as the alleged 46th president and vice president of the United States, I predicted that there would be a stepped up inquisition, if not purge, by the left of any opposition to its mission to totally enslave We the People in a socialist and increasingly communist godless state. Sure enough, following the events of two weeks ago last Wednesday at the Capitol, following a peaceful speech by then-President Donald Trump, the FBI, an integral part and weapon of the now...

    Sometimes what you don’t see is more important than what you do see.Filling D.C. with soldiers meant that no one was going to measure Biden’s crowds. The only crowds were heavily armed and had been ordered to come. The complete lack of enthusiasm for the new one-party state that was getting its Mussolini on was the dog that didn’t bark.
  • Rand Paul: Trump Senate impeachment trial an 'illegitimate procedure' without John Roberts

    Washington Examiner ^ | Jan 23 | by Andrew Mark Miller,
    Sen. Rand Paul says that a Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump that doesn’t include Chief Justice John Roberts would be an illegitimate process. “If Justice Roberts won’t preside over this sham ‘impeachment’ then why would it ever be considered legitimate?” the Kentucky Republican tweeted Friday. “Hint: It won’t be.” Later in the day, Paul joined Fox News’s Sean Hannity and elaborated on his impeachment stance, calling it an “illegitimate procedure” if Roberts isn’t there. “It isn’t a real impeachment. It’s going to be a fake, partisan impeachment,” Paul said about a process without Roberts. “The story is,”...
  • Biden Stops Trump Order To Slash Price Of Insulin, EpiPen

    Daily Wire ^ | 01/23-01 | Amanda Prestigiacomo
    President Joe Biden’s United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on Thursday stopped executive orders from his predecessor designed to significantly lower prescription drug prices for Americans, including insulin and epinephrine. The new administration will apparently re-evaluate the executive action from President Donald Trump toward the end of March. It remains unclear if it will be reinstated. “The HHS Thursday froze the former Trump administration’s December drug policy that requires community health centers to pass on all their insulin and epinephrine discount savings to patients,” Bloomberg Law reported Thursday. “Centers that don’t pass on the savings wouldn’t qualify...

    That is the question. To be precise, that is the $50,000 question, or whatever amount Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, is making per hour. To brin: a verb meaning to break under the torture of censorship and/or cancellation, or, as Hamlet put it, “to take arms against a sea of troubles /And by opposing end them.” Should we struggle against dorseynization and zuckerberging? Or should we comply with the ruling party orders and brin into submission? We all know that “net neutrality” has nothing to do with the internet or neutrality. “LGBT” has nothing to do with sexual preferences. “Black...

    Former Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard issued a stark warning Friday about the proposed bill to combat domestic terrorism. Gabbard joined “Fox News Primetime” to discuss the legislation with host Brian Kilmeade, and she made it clear that she was concerned the legislation could be used to undermine civil liberties. Kilmeade introduced Gabbard, who had just stepped away from her congressional seat two weeks earlier, and asked, “Are you surprised they’re pushing forward with this extra surveillance on would-be domestic terror?” “It’s so dangerous as you guys have been talking about, this is an issue that all Democrats, Republicans, independents,...

The group was chaired by Churchill historian and Hillsdale College President, Dr. Larry P. Arnn. The vice chair was Dr. Carol M. Swain, a retired professor of political science. (Full disclosure: I was a member of the commission.)The unanimously approved conclusions focused on the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, the historical challenges to these founding documents and the need for civic renewal. The 16-member commission was diverse in...

    If you’re a man. I don’t mean a guy. I don’t mean a male. I mean, if you’re a man, your top priority, obligation, and, yes, privilege, are the safety and well-being of your family. That’s it. That’s the only responsibility that matters. And anyone who puts anything — including what’s best for society — ahead of that responsibility, who neglects his family or who sacrifices his family’s safety and well-being on the altar of some greater good, is not a man. I own nine firearms, all of them loaded, all of them spread throughout my house. If you were...

    All three networks on Inauguration Day played a 90 minute special devoted to praising America and patriotism. And while one can question timing of the special (this didn’t happen four years ago), the content was positive and patriotic. ABC and NBC mostly used the half hour prior to the special with panels. CBS, however, offered a segment on how racism may finally be ending now that Joe Biden is president. Reporter Peter Van Sant re-interviewed children the network talked to during Donald Trump’s presidency. These kids were either undocumented or minorities. Apparently, though, bigotry is now finished. Talking to one...

    During the Gold Rush era it celebrates, the owners of Columbia Booksellers & Variety Store might settle their disputes with dueling pistols at dawn. But today, non-firing replicas of the very kinds of guns that would have been brandished during that time period appear to be at the center of a dispute between the small locally owned Tuolumne County shop and major San Francisco tech company Square, Inc. The store had to close both its physical location in Columbia State Historic Park and its online website sales due to the tech giant abruptly canceling its contract earlier this week. Now...

    President Trump's fulfillment of campaign promises resulted in increased support among minorities, including from Hispanics in Florida, Arizona, California, Nevada, Colorado, North Carolina, Wisconsin and Texas. In Starr County, Texas, which is 96% Hispanic, for example, Joe Biden won by only 5 points, a swing of more than 25 points from the 2016 election, noted Republican activist Rachel Campos-Duffy in an article for The Federalist. Nearby Zapata County, Texas, which is 85% Hispanic and historically Democrat, has turned Republican, increasing its support for Trump by 15% since 2016. So how can legacy media continue to insist that Trump is racist?

    The Montana House of Representatives has passed major gun law legislation, HB102, by more than a 2-1 margin, 66 for, 31 against. The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.Link to the text of Montana bill HB102 at mt.gov.HB102 is a general revision of Montana gun law. Numerous Montana statutes are revised, and...
