Hostile takeover of SCOTUS advanced by democrats

April 16, 2021

Democrats are like spoiled children, proficient at whining, foot stomping and petulantly claiming they are  getting the short end of the stick. This is especially true when the “stick” in question happens to be the U.S. Supreme Court.

It is the president’s prerogative to nominate justices as vacancies occur.  President Trump had three such opportunities during his term, filling seats on the high court with Brett Kavanaugh (replacing Justice Anthony Kennedy), Neil Gorsuch (replacing Justice Antonin Scalia) and Amy Coney Barrett (replacing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg).

The likelihood of repeating that feat is slim to none for Pres. Joe Biden, who is obviously in failing health and unlikely to serve out his full term.

Therein lies the quandary. The new administration wants to put its leftist mark on the court. That ideology was epitomized by Justice Thurgood Marshall who summed up his judicial philosophy with these words: “You do what you think is right and let the law catch up.” 

Conservative justices, often described as “originalists,” or “constitutionalists” see the document as not open to wide interpretation, preferring to follow the law as written. A constructionist approach not only aligns with the founders’ vision for America, but it also is the best line of defense against an out-of-control government that deprives its citizens of their freedoms. The Constitution delegated the authority to make law to the legislature, not to judges.

It is with these lines of demarcation that Americans need to pay attention to the democrat’s preparations — as announced in this White House press release — for a hostile takeover of the U.S. Supreme Court by expanding the number of justices from nine to thirteen.

On February 5, 1937, democrat Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt sent shockwaves through the nation by initiating a plot to expand the Supreme Court, known as “packing the court,” to insure his leftist agenda would easily be implemented. FDR’s scheme was short-lived, defeated by Roosevelt’s own party members. The senate judiciary committee was clear in its assessment, writing, “It is a measure which should be so emphatically rejected that its parallel will never again be presented to the free representatives of the free people of America.”

Today’s democrats are both ignorant of precedent and far less noble. 

The overreach is being pushed by Sen. Edward J. Markey (D-MA); House Judiciary Chair, Jerrold Nadler (D-NY); U.S. Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY); and U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) — who deceptively defended the legislation’s introduction as necessary to start debate on the issue. Ramrodding is not akin to debate.

“Ultimately, we have to repeal the filibuster. And then we can move this legislation,” Markey said. “Clearly, we would want Republicans to vote with us, but if they are not willing to participate in that effort,” he slyly added, “then we can still do this on a basis of 51 votes.”

Jones, who stated Biden is “doing a tremendous job,” also said, “There is no reason to work with’ the GOP right now.”

The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13, from the current 9 which has been the case for 152 years. Their intent is to flip the ideological balance of the 9-member court from a 6-3 conservative majority to a 7-6 leftist majority.

Though the consequences of this scheme are enormous, as a 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden, in an exchange with a reporter covered by the Daily Wire, said voters “don’t deserve” to know his view on this crucial issue. But as a senator in 1983, Biden held a far different perspective, calling packing the court, “a bonehead idea.”


Joyous Easter wishes…

and the flawed advisability of mixing leftist politics and religion

On this holiday we are taking the unusual step of including a thought provoking editorial by Wayne Allyn Root, posted today on Townhall. Regardless of your religion, we recommend, “An Important Easter Sunday Message for the Catholic Church, Major League Baseball and Delta Airlines.” It could be any church and the thrust of the message would be the same, though this specifically exposes the duplicity of Father Milton Ryan, a priest at Holy Trinity Church in Dallas, Texas.


Dem voter suppression claim kicked to the curb by US Rep. Burgess Owens

March 15, 2021

Former football star still plays hardball though in a different field 

Today we take our readers directly to the Daily Wire to meet a new conservative shining star, Utah Congressman Burgess Owens, who unseated a democrat incumbent in the state’s November 2020 election.

Although he previously won acclaim as the NFL player who led the Oakland Raiders to victory in the 1980 Super Bowl, Owens was an early standout in the political arena as a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump. During the Utah Republican primary, Owens, who is black, capably won in a crowded field by running to the right of his opponents while unequivocally disagreeing with athletes kneeling during the national anthem in support of Black Lives Matter.

Congressional democrats are working double time to gut state voter ID laws and any restrictions on election day registration, as they require state agencies to provide names and addresses for recipients of aid and any state services to be placed on the permanent mail-in ballot list, under the fraudulent claim that not doing so “suppresses the vote.” The Daily Wire‘s Hank Berrien writes, Tell Me Again, Why Is Showing A Voter I.D. Voter Suppression’: Burgess Owens Slams Critics Of Voter I.D. Law.

The Heritage Foundation’s Hans von Spakovsky, an attorney and a former member of the Federal Election Commission details the extreme election mandates that blatantly enable voter fraud which the democrats are working to impose through H.R. 1, — a nearly 800 page overreach — deceptively titled,For the People Act of 2021.” The House bill’s number and its Senate joint measure S. R. 1, clearly identifies this as the democrats’ first legislative priority. There are even attempts to lower the voting age to 16.

Republicans in state legislatures throughout the nation are committed to ensuring voting integrity, but the biggest hurdle is the educrat establishment which puts no priority on American history and civics and whose unions refuse to open schools.

According to the Nation’s Report Card, just 24% of U.S. high schoolers are proficient in civics upon graduation. Even the left-of-center Annenberg Foundation’s Constitution Day 2020 Civics Survey indicates just 51% of Americans can correctly name all three branches of government, with 23% unable to name any branches of government.  As of 2018, just eight states and the District of Columbia required at least a year of US government or civics courses prior to high school graduation. 

No wonder democrats view Americans as ripe for a takeover of our basic freedoms. We need to elect more of the caliber of Burgess Owens.

REMINDER TO OUR READERS: In accordance with our 2020 policy, the word “democrat” or its derivatives will no longer be capitalized on this site.


Focus on Trump at CPAC Conference 1:40 PM today

February 28, 2021

UPDATE: Former President Trump’s presence is undeniably monumental as he solidifies his stature as leader of GOP while addressing an approving CPAC crowd 

President Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States is scheduled to address the CPAC conference at today 1:40 PM Arizona Time.

Watch Live.

Speaking to the GOP’s conservative base at the conclusion of the three-day CPAC Conference (agenda) in Orlando, Florida, former President Donald Trump continues to hold sway over mainstream Republicans, party insiders and activists.

He is expected to play an active role in the 2022 midterm elections. At this point, he has already endorsed his former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who is running for Arkansas governor.

Donald Trump has been a CPAC regular since making his first appearance in 2011, long before announcing as a presidential candidate. Among the impressive list of speakers at this year’s conference are Arizona Congressmen Paul Gosar (CD4) and Andy Biggs (CD5).


Day 1: Biden’s exec orders reverse Trump policies, feeds dems red meat

January 21, 2021

The Biden team will put “racial justice and equity at the center of our agenda.”

— Susan Rice, incoming White House domestic policy adviser

Fox News details the mandates under the headline, “Biden to sign 17 executive actions, orders to reverse Trump policies, restore Obama-era programs on first day.”

Among the 17 initial reversals of current policies, with a vow of more to come, Biden said he will rescind Trump’s plans to withdraw the U.S. from the [duplicitous] World Health Organization, the U.N.’s public health arm. He has directed Dr. Anthony Fauci, (astonishingly disturbing photo link showing Fauci’s more than a doctor) with addressing WHO’s executive board today.

The man behind the curtain isn’t the Wizard of Oz. It’s Barack Ozbama.


Pres. Donald J. Trump’s farewell address to the nation

How fortunate we have been to have these two remarkable people leading our great nation.


Georgia voters throw America to the democrat wolves & Update

January 6, 2021

Radical NY Sen. Chuck Schumer preemptively declares himself the Senate Majority Leader, a title he would not assume until after the January 20, 2021 inauguration

Who would ever have thought the political fate of the United States would hinge on a Georgia runoff election where two problematic democrats mounted challenges to the incumbent Republicans? Yet that is the bizarre scenario that is playing out in the southern state that helped sweep Donald Trump into the presidency, giving him all of its 16 electoral votes in 2016.

“As Majority Leader, President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris will have a partner who is ready, willing and able to help achieve a forward-looking agenda and deliver help and bold change to the American people,” Schumer declared.

Republican incumbent Sen. David Purdue and unqualified challenger Jon Ossoff remain locked in a tight race as of this morning, separated by a single percentage point. Sen. Kelly Loeffler narrowly lost by a 50.6% – 49.4% margin to Communist sympathizer Raphael Warnock, who turned a blind eye to sexual abuse of young boys at his church camp and was arrested for interfering with law enforcement officers who were trying to interview youth camp counselors about the child abuse allegations.

The “bold change” Schumer is hoping to implement could rightly be described as terrifying to every American who opposes defunding the police, implementing Biden‘s $4 trillion tax increase, having our country sold out to China, the Supreme Court expanded, the Green New Deal enacted, a government takeover of health care implemented, abolishing the 60-vote filibuster rule and granting statehood to Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico —  a scheme to permanently reshape the Senate by adding four more leftist senators. These radical transformations are exactly what Democrats would enact if Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer gets his desire for “bold change.”

It all hinges on a single percentage point in Georgia.


Jon Ossoff takes race in what could best be called, “hardly a mandate”

Jon Ossoff: 50.4%
David Purdue: 49.6%


2020: Sending joyous Christmas wishes to our readers

December 25, 2020

May the peace and goodwill of this season be with us all. We express our gratitude to our service personnel, many stationed far from their own families, who ensure our countless freedoms and ask for blessings on President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania, and their entire family.

There’s no denying this has been an unprecedented year, dealing with a deadly global virus that has taken the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans, and negatively impacting the historically best economy our nation has seen. For the first time ever, we have witnessed an election many consider fraudulent, based on numerous questionable practices brilliantly enumerated here by Patrick Basham.

We pray that 2021 will not continue to challenge us, and God shines his blessings on America.

Rush Limbaugh sends love, Christmas wishes in final show of 2020

December 24, 2020

As his fans are all too aware, Rush Limbaugh announced Feb. 3, that he had been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.

The following night, during the State of the Union address, President Trump awarded the obviously surprised Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom, (brief video) which First Lady Melania Trump seated beside him, placed around his neck. The president thanked the radio host for his longtime charity work and “decades of tireless devotion to our country.”

Rush Limbaugh’s influence was immediate from his first nationally syndicated show August 1, 1988. He paved the way for conservative talk radio to lead on AM radio.

It is with our profound gratitude to Limbaugh’s impact on the thinking of so many that we direct our readers to, “What Rush Limbaugh’s life says about eternity,” by Richard Jack Rail. The author says of Rush Limbaugh, “He has pointed millions of Americans back to the path we ought never have left.” According to EIB (Excellence in Broadcasting) the number is 43 million daily.

Watch the opening of his Dec. 23 show, the last of this year, as he wishes “Merry Christmas everybody…I love you all.”

His grateful audience loves him back and wishes him and his wife, Kathryn, a Merry Christmas and many blessings in return.
