    As everybody but the New Guinea tribesmen who ate Joe Biden's uncle knows by now, Donald J Trump has been found "guilty on all counts" - a quintessentially American expression because, of course, the multiple-counts racket is one of the many perversions of judicial norms that have long disgraced the US courthouse. Just twenty-four hours ago, my friend John Hinderaker was writing: Experience has given me a lot of faith in the basic fairness of juries. Late yesterday, he remembered - oh, yeah, I've been here before: It is very much like the lawsuit that Michael Mann brought against Mark...

    Among the features of the ideal republic is the absence of factions and political parties. Per James Madison, a faction is a group of citizens, either a majority or minority, united and actuated by some common passion or interest adverse to the rights of other citizens or the aggregate interests of the community. A political party is a collection of factions. Imagine if every representative, senator, president, and bureaucrat took the Preamble of our Constitution to heart and selflessly dedicated themselves to secure the Blessings of Liberty to themselves and their posterity. This is the public virtue hoped for in...
  • Oregon Dems Ban Republicans From Running for Office

    After years of trying to “protect democracy” and “fortify democracy”, Democrats finally succeeded in Oregon where they banned Republicans from running for office. That’s what the Democrat flavor of democracy looks like. When the Tennessee House of Representatives temporarily expelled two Democrats who had taken part in an insurrection on its grounds, the media quickly turned it into a national story. The move by the Republican majority was an “attack on democracy”. But when the Democrat majority in Oregon banned half the Republican Senate delegation from running for reelection, that has been treated as a local story. And not an...
  • Cheney: My Focus Is on Defeating Trump — He Is ‘Existential Threat’ to Our Republic

    Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that her main focus was on defeating former President Donald Trump because he is an “existential threat.” Cheney said, “Neither party has selected their nominee yet. It looks like it’s most likely to be Donald Trump and Joe Biden, but we don’t know that for sure. I think it’s going to require making an assessment about sort of how we can most effectively mobilize people in both parties and mobilize independents frankly to stand against Donald Trump. I think, you know, there’s a lot that has to be done...

    Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) said in a preview clip that will air on “CBS Sunday Morning” that if former President Donald Trump is elected in 2024, it would be the end of the U.S. republic form of government because we would be “sleepwalking into dictatorship.” Partial transcript as follows: JOHN DICKERSON: You say, Donald Trump, if he is re-elected, it will be the end of the Republic. What do you mean? CHENEY: He’s told us what he will do. It’s very easy to see the steps that he will take. People who say, ‘Well, if he’s elected, it’s not...

    It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice. Ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government. Ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money. Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my...

    President Joe Biden issued blunt new warnings about ongoing existential threats to US democracy in a major address Thursday, sharpening the central argument in his potential rematch with Donald Trump and asking voters to prioritize the health of American institutions. “There’s something dangerous happening in America now,” Biden said during his speech in Arizona, where he was also honoring his friend, the late Republican Sen. John McCain. “There’s an extremist movement that does not share the basic beliefs of our democracy: The MAGA movement.” “There’s no question that today’s Republican Party is driven and intimidated by MAGA Republican extremists,” he...

    (Jul. 19, 2023) — Amending the Pledge of Allegiance is not an unprecedented or trivial event. It has occurred several times previously when an improvement was created by those devoted to making it better and more powerful. What will be proposed within this article clearly adds great benefit to the Pledge because the United States Constitution is at least as worthy as, and maybe even more than, the flag for all Americans to pledge their loyalty and adherence to. The history of the current Pledge of Allegiance can be found in this link: https://www.thoughtco.com/pledge-of-allegiance-brief-history-3320198. As is detailed within that reference,...

    Former Trump economic adviser Gary Cohn on Sunday said the anticipated sale of First Republic bank will be a “much faster process” than occurred in the case of Silicon Valley Bank. “What will most likely happen is the FDIC will seize control and then simultaneously resell the asset to the successful bidder. I think that will happen sometime later this afternoon before the markets open in Asia this evening,” Cohn said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

    Red State. ^ | April 12, 2023 | Brandon Morse
    The social justice movement isn’t something to scoff at. While it’s filled to the brim with ignorance, stupidity, and childish behavior, it weaponized these qualities into a force that is capable of infecting any institution it comes across. Logic and sense are disregarded and its enemies are either shouted down, assaulted, or even killed. When that does happen, you can watch as the infected institutions do their best to show their support for the thugs and killers that did the deed. Recent events make that clear. ... Meanwhile, a continued declaration keeps ringing out from the left and it should...

    Donald Trump’s indictment makes one wonder if the members of the Democrat party have ever picked up a history book, walked by one in a library, or accidentally heard an episode of the History of Rome podcast. I doubt it because if they had, they’d know that Rome didn’t transition from a republic to an empire overnight, and they’d be familiar with the modern iteration of the George Santayana adage: Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it. By the time Caesar became dictator in 49 BC, the Republic was already gone in everything but name only....

    Is the title of this piece apocalyptic hyperbole? I wish it were. But everyone in the country and most of the people in the wide world know that Donald Trump has not actually been indicted for the crime of giving hush money to a prostitute. He has been indicted for the crime of opposing the Leftist elites and challenging their control over the political system. For the first time in American history, a politician – indeed, a front-running presidential candidate – has been indicted in order to destroy his political chances. Americans used to take pride in the fact that...
  • Former Attorney General Bill Barr: Trump Indictment Is ‘an Abomination,’ ‘Makes Us Look Like a Banana Republic’

    Former Attorney General Bill Barr called Democrat District Attorney of New York Alvin Bragg’s indictment of former President Donald Trump on Thursday an “abomination.” “Based on the news reports if they’re accurate, this is an abomination,” Barr said Friday on Fox Business. “It’s the epitome of the abuse of prosecutorial power to bring a case that would not be brought against anyone else. They are going after the man, not a crime. And the legal theory, frankly, is pathetically weak.”

    Democracy, like the polar bears, the bald eagle and the 99-cent pizza slice, is threatened. We know that’s true because the media, the least democratic body outside of North Korea, tells us this all the time. And we know that it must be true because apart from its daily panics over some political, medical, environmental or economic crisis that will later turn out to be imaginary or overblown, the media has an unbroken track record of honesty and truth that almost equals that of Bill Clinton. So who better to warn us about the threat to democracy than an undemocratic...

    I believe this is from the Dan Smoot Report from the 1960s: VIDEO AT LINK........... “The ideal of a constitutional republic is individual liberty. In this century, great strides have been made toward the goal of subverting our republic, and transforming it into a democracy. The foremost tactic of the subverters is subversion of “language” — by calling America a democracy, until people thoughtlessly accept the term, and use the term. Totalitarians have obscured the real meanings and principles of American government.” ~ Dan Smoot Notice that Benjamin Franklin did NOT say “a democracy if you can keep it”. He...

    Are there any decent Democrats out there anymore? Are they sick and tired of what the fascist far left has been doing to this country? Have they become thoroughly disgusted by the lies, deception, cheating, and gaslighting promulgated by their side in a headlong pursuit of power? The election two years ago highlighted the fatal flaw in our constitutional republic — a flaw that only has been made worse this time around. Our system isn't designed to withstand it if one side loses its moral underpinnings in favor of a lust for power and is willing to do anything to...

    PHOENIX — Former president Barack Obama used a rally here Wednesday night to deliver perhaps his bluntest warning yet about the stakes of next week’s midterm elections for America’s system of self-government. If the Republican candidates here are successful, Obama argued, “Democracy as we know it may not survive in Arizona.” “That’s not an exaggeration,” he added. “That is a fact.”

    Key Takeaways: Republic vs. Democracy Republics and democracies both provide a political system in which citizens are represented by elected officials who are sworn to protect their interests. In a pure democracy, laws are made directly by the voting majority leaving the rights of the minority largely unprotected. In a republic, laws are made by representatives chosen by the people and must comply with a constitution that specifically protects the rights of the minority from the will of the majority. The United States, while basically a republic, is best described as a “representative democracy.” In a republic, an official set...
