    Why We Couldn’t Create Our Constitution Today

    Americans should be thankful not only for the rare genius that assembled in Philadelphia in 1787 to draft the Constitution, but for the unique circumstances under which they met.

    Not all moments in time are ripe for founding a nation. Nor is every citizenry equally prepared to receive new modes and orders. The Founders’ time and generation presented just such an opportunity. Our time would not.

    Earlier this month, University of Texas law professor Sanford Levinson wrote that “not enough people connect the dots … between our political dysfunctions and the sacred Constitution of 1787.” READ MORE...

    Anonymous New York Times Author Proves the Deep State Is Real, and Dangerous

    When Republicans lost the 1856 election, Abraham Lincoln had a sober message: “Whoever can change public opinion, can change the government.”

    Whoever wrote the anonymous New York Times op-ed, however, wants it the other way around.

    The biggest revelation from the Times op-ed isn’t the nameless author’s views on Trump. It’s the tacit admission of the existence—and arrogance—of the deep state.

    The deep state is shorthand for the vast network of career bureaucrats and unelected operatives working to advance an agenda that never faces public scrutiny. While administrations come and go, these government employees are a fixture in Washington, D.C. READ MORE...

  • Democrats Want Us To Believe All Women…Unless They’re Accusing Keith Ellison, Bill Clinton, Al Franken Or George Soros

    Democrats Want Us To Believe All Women…Unless They’re Accusing Keith Ellison, Bill Clinton, Al Franken Or George Soros

    The Democrats have called upon the Senate to postpone the vote on Kavanaugh. Establishment Republicans are racing for the exits. But over what? An unprovable accusation from decades ago that the accuser said nothing about until years later, and that is uncorroborated by any other testimony or by the evidence of any similar behavior on Kavanaugh’s part. This is clearly a set-up (Christine Ford is also a far-left Democrat operative) designed to derail the nomination of a good man. There is no low to which the Democrats will not sink to attain their nefarious goals of stopping the President from strengthening America and protecting Americans. READ MORE...

    Reporting the News Undermined in ‘Era’ of Trump, Black Journalists Argue

    Speakers on a panel of journalists at the annual meeting of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation in Washington said journalism is suffering in the era of President Donald Trump.

    “One of the things that has just been boiling my blood is the lack of respect for the press coming from the orange man,” Rep. Yvette Clarke, D-N.Y., said Friday, opening a panel discussion called “Black Journalists: Reporting Our Experiences in the Era of Trump.”

    The event was part of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Annual Legislative Conference, held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington. Dubbed “the leading policy conference on issues impacting African-Americans and the global black community,” the conference opened Wednesday and ends Sunday. READ MORE...

    New Batch of Strzok-Page Emails Suggests FBI Use of Unsecure Devices

    Email messages between two FBI officials suggest widespread use of unsecure communications by the bureau, according to records obtained in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

    Judicial Watch, a Washington-based nonpartisan government watchdog organization, announced Thursday that it received 47 pages of records from the Justice Department that show FBI officials used “unsecure devices” while discussing a matter involving the European Union.

    The records include emails between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, two FBI officials who were close to investigations of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Neither remains with the bureau. READ MORE...

    NATO Chief Credits Trump for Allies’ Boosting Defense Spending

    NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg says allies are stepping up in their commitments to defense spending, and gives some of the credit to President Donald Trump.

    Stoltenberg also told an audience at The Heritage Foundation in Washington on Friday that the international defense alliance likely would not name its headquarters after Sen. John McCain, the veteran Arizona Republican and prominent defense hawk who died Aug. 25.

    “President Trump has been outspoken on this issue, and I have thanked him for his leadership on defense spending,” Stoltenberg said at the leading conservative think tank’s Capitol Hill headquarters. “Since President Trump took office, NATO allies across Europe and Canada have spent an additional $41 billion extra in U.S. dollars on defense.” READ MORE...

  • Conservatives Non-Challenging Attitude Toward Change

    Conservatives Non-Challenging Attitude Toward Change

    America truly has lost her way. Founded as a nation where the individual citizen was sovereign and the maintaining of liberty was a responsibility understood by all, we have transgressed into a country where we sit on the edges of our seats waiting for the government to save us from ourselves. Government has become the central focus of our lives as conservatives wait for Trump to “make America great again” and liberals wait for the Democrats to create utopia. This was not the original intent of government when our nation was created. Government was recognized by the founders as a necessary evil and worked to give us a nation where the powers of government were few and limited in their scope. Our bill of rights explicitly states in the tenth amendment that all powers not delegated to the federal government are reserved to the states or the people. America was founded as a nation where the people had the freedom to govern their own lives and the government had no power to tell them how to live. Yet, here we are after more than a century of progressivism and government controlled education waiting for the government to fix all of our problems. READ MORE...
