  • Any loyalty owed?

    So, if a government violates constitutional provisions do citizens owe it (and its officials) any loyalty at all? So far as I can tell USConst provisions regarding elector objections were ignored. Per requirements, Reps and Senators formally objected. Per requirements both houses were required to break apart and debate the issues – then return to joint debate. Those provisions were never completed. And, since they weren’t, Pence might well be justified in saying he cannot set aside the elector votes. “Might”. Had a hurricane gamboled thru Virginia both houses would have scampered for shelter. As well they should. They would...

    PART 1: This is the kind of series I’d hope I’d never have to write. And yet, here we are. After three years of doing my best to serve the groundswell that is the Patriot movement in the United States, and six total, being on the total warpath for Trump, I must now bring to you what are possibly the most important articles I will ever have to write which will reveal corruption, and contempt for the American people at the highest levels. This will be a three part series, released over the next few hours, so please, pay close...
  • As the last line of defense of the Republic seems to be crumbling. With full federal government control -- the Republic will be permanently lost if Trump's reelection is permitted to be stolen

    Now that the Georgia Senate seats appear to be unsurprisingly lost, we must ask: how many once reliably conservative states must be flipped before the cretinous Republican Party realizes that you can have cheap imported foreign labor, or you can have a stable universal suffrage republic, but you can't have both? Perhaps today Senate and House Republicans will realize that the President is America's last line of defense. Perhaps they will realize this is it. Lose Trump and it's game over for a long time. Perhaps, but probably not. With full federal government control -- a second time after Obama's...

    Never Thought It Would HappenAuthor unknown and spot on. Some of you have no idea what you’ve done. Sadly, some of you do. Well since the US Supreme Court won’t hear from the state of Texas, this is for those who still don’t get it - Now you understand why there was never any action against the Clintons or Obama, how they destroyed emails and evidence and phones and servers, how they spied and wiretapped, how they lied to FISA, had conversations on the tarmac, sent emails to cover their asses after key meetings, how Comey and Brennan and Clapper...
  • Did SCOTUS Give POTUS Green Light on Election?

    Janitor's view ^ | December 15, 2020 | Reasonmclucus
    The normal procedure for dealing with questioned elections in the Americas is for public protests after which the military may intervene and order a new election. The U.S. Constitution states "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government." Providing this guarantee is one of the President's most important duties. Vote-flipping machines and allowing the dead to vote which were reported in some states are not consistent with "a Republican Form of Government, " If the election involves a political issue rather than a judicial one as SCOTUS implied then President Donald Trump...
  • The Republic is Truly Dead

    According to 7 of the 9 SCOTUS judges, any number of states can brazenly violate the US constitution in order to achieve what political aims they favor – and no other state(s) can have leave to argue the issue before the premier federal court. Of course Texas has standing! If any state of a republic violates the laws (US constitution) that apply to all, any other state has standing to at least have a hearing – if not eventual justice. Let’s say a neighbor does something obnoxious that not only violates local laws but impacts me – e.g., burning auto...

    Who is the KING in America? Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary defined "KING" as: "KING, n. 1. The chief or SOVEREIGN of a nation; a man invested with supreme authority over a nation, tribe or country; a monarch. Kings are absolute." Kings have "subjects" who are subjected to their will. The word "citizen" is Greek, and has the connotation of co-ruler, co-sovereign, co-king. "Polis" is the Greek word for city, and "politics" was simply the "business of the city." The Greek city-state of Athens had about 6,000 citizens, and every citizen had to be at the marketplace everyday to talk politics....

    If it weren't so disgustingly dishonest, it would be hilarious. MSNBC, with a helping hand from a Lincoln Project Never-Trumper, has uncovered a Communist who has somehow managed to infiltrate himself into a lofty elected position. And it's none other than . . . Republican Senator Mike Lee, from that hotbed of seething Stalinism, Utah! Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Sept. 16 (UPI) — Barbados Governor-general Sandra Mason said Wednesday her Caribbean island nation has decided to remove Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state and declare itself a republic. Barbados, a tourist destination in the eastern Caribbean 700 miles off the Venezuela coast, won independence from Britain in 1966 but has remained a British commonwealth realm.

During the keynote, Vice President for Equity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer Kijua Sanders-McMurtry interviewed Hannah-Jones. "I don’t think we’re an exceptional nation. I think that’s ludicrous for any nation to make that claim, and we certainly cannot make that claim."

    Conservatives are generally quick to point out that America is a republic, not a democracy. But what really is the difference, and are they even right? Voting in America has changed considerably since the days of our founding. Back then, the government didn’t even print official ballots. Instead, you got ballots from the candidate who wanted your support. Sometimes voting took place in public, so everyone knew who you voted for. And, of course, the franchise was largely restricted to white, male property owners. Now, anyone who turns 18 can vote. And the Democratic Party wants to increase ballot access...

    Vote-by-mail is the devil It’s valid for those of us on the right to be concerned about the fate of our beloved country, especially in this strangest of years. We are, after all, facing a host of problems: the coronavirus pandemic, the successful radical leftist indoctrination of two generations of public school kids, and the resulting lust for socialism on the American left resulting from that. There is also the fact that the idiot lefties are trying to ruin sports, entertainment, and even hamburgers, but we’ll have to save that for another day.When I survey the 2020 landscape trying to...

    American government and political science will come alive when you read the Greeks and Romans, the same way that words come alive when you study Latin and Greek. There were many influences on the Founding Fathers, and certainly the modern philosophers—Locke and Hume—were important along with the tradition of English liberty. But separation of powers, mixed government, and checks and balances are the principles that first come to my mind when I think of the genius of the American political system; and where did these concepts come from? Plato in the Republic describes five types of government and says they...

    CNS News ^ | January 28, 2020 | Walter E. Williams
    During President Donald J. Trump's impeachment trial, we'll hear a lot of talk about our rules for governing. One frequent claim is that our nation is a democracy. If we've become a democracy, it would represent a deep betrayal of our founders, who saw democracy as another form of tyranny. In fact, the word democracy appears nowhere in our nation's two most fundamental documents, the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. The founders laid the ground rules for a republic as written in the Constitution's Article IV, Section 4, which guarantees "to every State in this Union a Republican...

    Plato was a Greek philosopher who lived in the city-state of Athens. In 380 BC, Plato wrote The Republic, where he described in Books 8 and 9: "States are as the men are; they grow out of human characters." "Like State, like man." The Republic is written as a collection of conversations of Plato's teacher Socrates. It gives insights into human behavior which is amazingly similar to today. Plato described government going through FIVE STAGES: "The constitutions of States are five." The FIVE STAGES are: "We count as one Royal and Aristocratical ..." followed by Timocratical, Oligarchical, Democratical, Tyrannical. Plato's...

    In the lead-up to the 2016 election, Democrats fretted openly about the possibility that Donald Trump, being a rather poor sport, might refuse to acknowledge an election loss. To be fair, Trump refused to state that he would accept election results, depending on the circumstances: “I’ll keep you in suspense,” he stated in his Oct. 19, 2016, debate with Hillary Clinton. Clinton, for her part, called his statement “horrifying,” adding that he was harming American democracy. Trump, of course, won. And Clinton spent the next couple of years suggesting openly that she had been robbed in the election. Democrats blamed...
