Americans Reject Extreme Democratic Positions on Abortion

The decisions issued in June by the Supreme Court are, collectively, about as important a collection as we have seen in decades. The most notable, and most relevant to conservative Constitutionalists, is of course the reversal of Roe v. Wade.

When a major decision is issued, especially one that impacts the laws of the fifty states and DC, it can take time for the effects of it to work their way through the system. Many state laws will remain unchanged while some will fine-tune them as a result of the decision. In fact, in several states, it happened automatically, as they had trigger laws that went into effect because of the ruling.

It is important to recognize, up front, that abortion is among the most contentious issues in America. Yet a look at the opinions of Americans shows there is actual common ground. In addition, the people overwhelmingly reject the position of Democratic leaders.

The Democratic position on abortion today is that there should be no restrictions on it. None. Women (if you can define the term) should be able to kill their babies through the ninth month, for any reason or no reason. Biden says so, apparatchiks like Stacey Abrams say so, and so do 49 out of 50 Democratic senators who voted for a bill that would eliminate all restrictions on abortion. About ninety percent of Americans oppose that view.

Yet, the prevailing narrative is that the GOP is the extreme party. Nonsense. Republicans have an opportunity to demonstrate they are the party closest to the American mainstream.

Biden to Declare Climate Emergency? Stop Laughing

By J Robert Smith

From the Daily Caller, July 19:

President Joe Biden could declare a climate emergency as soon as this week, according to The Washington Post, in a bid to implement elements of his environmental agenda as climate legislation has stalled in Congress.

Despite what Democrats and the corporate media say, the country is in the opening phases of a recession. Overall inflation – by the official measure – is at 9.1%. But key categories like gas, home heating and cooling, and many groceries (meats, in particular) are double digits on the inflation meter. A deeper recession is very likely.

Throw Biden’s potential “climate emergency” into the mix and a deeper recession isn’t just likely, but probable. In fact, “deeper” might be an understatement. Clamping down on conventional energy – namely, fossil fuels – will send a jolt through the entire American economy that will cause inflation to spiral up, businesses to fold, job losses galore, and slews of personal bankruptcies.

Sounds apocalyptical? Well, it could be if the president imposes the full radical green agenda on the nation.

Anyone following what’s happening in Germany? Germany’s an advanced industrial nation (forget the “post” crap). The German elite have been shutting down coal energy plants and forcing Germans out of gas-powered vehicles. They’ve upped Germany’s reliance on wind and solar power – both of which are highly unreliable and costly.

Again from the Daily Caller, July 5:

After pouring billions of dollars into green energy, Germany is facing economic calamity, including potential collapse should Russia shut off gas supplies.

On July 5, Germany announced their plan to rewrite 1970s legislation to send taxpayer funds to energy suppliers in an attempt to prepare for a possible recession, the Wall Street Journal reported. The collapse comes after Germany unveiled their plan to spend $220 billion to transfer all their energy needs to renewable sources, Reuters reported.

The situation in Germany is so alarming that the government has begun putting coal-fired powerplants back on line. Other nations in the EU are facing a similar possible crisis.

Biden’s handlers (more so than Biden, who is clearly suffering dementia), are simply delusional. There is no climate crisis to contend with in the U.S. or across the globe.

The notion that human activity (and even herds like cattle) are pumping so much carbon and methane into the atmosphere that the world is on the brink of tumbling into a greenhouse catastrophe is sheer whacky science fiction… utter nonsense pimped by cynics and cultish believers who want to exert more power over our lives. These people – mostly affluent progressives – have abandoned God and replaced traditional faith with zany cult beliefs under the guise of science.

Biden’s handlers, if successful – if they push their radical “save the planet” agenda to the max – will plunge this nation into economic woes that might rival the Great Depression. But anything close is bad enough.

This developing folly, by the way, is the consequence of Donald Trump being cheated out of his 2020 reelection. Unfortunately, even the honest and innocent are paying prices for that folly, which could grow worse in the coming months.

Unlimited Dollars for Ukraine (But Pennies for the Border)

By J. Robert Smith

Bipartisanship is alive and well in Washington. Democrats and Republicans are providing Ukraine’s military with lots of stuff to fight the Russians. Even some conservative talkers and TV show opinionators are gung-ho for the U.S. lending ever greater support to the Ukrainians. Humanitarian aid has poured into that war-torn country as well.

Back in May, Congress approved an eye-popping $40 billion in aid to Ukraine. Imagine if only a fraction of that money was allocated to stop the epic troubles happening along what was once the U.S.-Mexican border? That’s not said flippantly. The U.S. southern border has effectively disappeared. It’s being overrun monthly by tens of thousands of “migrants.” Well, they’re migrants until they cross into the U.S. Then they become illegals. But that’s fine with Biden and Democrats, who as unspoken policy, not incompetence, laid bare the border for the invasion that’s taking place. Democrats want new constituents and voters. Big business wants cheap labor. It’s an unholy alliance.

So, showing that Ukraine matters more to the DC crowd than the security of our own border comes Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND), who dropped this bomb on the Charlie Kirk Show the other day. Said Cramer:

“Well, I don’t know that the line is a dollar amount, Charlie,” Cramer began. “I think each request or each requirement, each demand, each circumstance requires its own discovery if you will. I don’t think we should do a whole bunch, necessarily, at one time. I think we should do smaller tranches, just for the purpose of renegotiating, and reaccessing.”

So, Cramer is basically saying that the U.S. commitment to Ukraine is open-ended, but pouring resources into finishing the Wall and putting whatever is needed in terms of law enforcement and National Guard on the southern border, well, isn’t the priority. Fighting for liberty in Ukraine matters more to Biden and Democrat and Republican members of Congress like Cramer than securing our nation. I guess gangbangers, cartel thugs, and lots of bad drugs pouring into the country take second place – if that – in the minds of the pea-brains who are supposed to represent us in Congress.

When will we say enough is enough and elect men and women to Congress who put America first?

Time for Anti-Trumpers to Put up or Shut Up

For those who may have caught part of the January 6 committee recently, our condolences! It represents how ridiculous our national expectations/tolerance about political propaganda has become. This kangaroo court has been designed to be completely partisan, ignore the role Pelosi, Schumer, and others played in the events around January 6, and to do as much damage to Trump as possible.

It is astonishing that the January 6 committee presentation is even considered news.

IF the committee were interested in learning the truth, in getting a full understanding of what happened before and after the riot, they would present information and subject it to an adversarial investigation. Hear all sides, ask questions, challenge assumptions, verify information. That process can lead to truth. But that is not what they have done.

The left/national leadership shows you who they fear most based on the level of their attacks against them. They hate Trump and know he will likely win if he runs again. They also, btw, clearly fear DeSantis. They know DeSantis will be strong if he runs for president.

January 6 is all about stifling dissent, controlling the narrative, and censoring opposition. And the national media, with the partial exception of FOX, has fallen in line to do their bidding.

Biden is Hard at Work Trying to Steal the Midterms

By J Robert Smith

  • June 23, 2022
  • 1 min read

Mollie Hemingway, Editor-in-Chief of The Federalist, has a must-read article posted today at The Federalist. The Biden administration has been hard at work for many months using federal programs and offices in the states to identify, register, and turnout voters for the midterms – their voters, meaning Democrats and Democrat-leaners. Or anyone receiving federal government handouts. This is illegal – or just skirts the law. The Democrats did practically the same thing in 2020 as part of a comprehensive campaign to steal the presidential election from Donald Trump.

Hemingway is author of the super analysis on the 2020 election theft, Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections. If you’re interested in one very important aspect of how Democrats foisted Joe Biden on the nation, read Mollie’s book. And also see Dinesh D’Souza’s eye-opening 2000 Mules documentary, which lays out the old fashioned way Democrats swiped the 2020 presidential contests: ballot box stuffing.

Charges Hemingway in her June 23 analysis:

When President Biden ordered all 600 federal agencies to “expand citizens’ opportunities to register to vote and to obtain information about, and participate in, the electoral process” on March 7, 2021, Republican politicians, Constitutional scholars, and election integrity specialists began to worry exactly what was up his sleeve.

They had good reason. The 2020 election had suffered from widespread and coordinated efforts by Democrat activists and donors to run “Get Out The Vote” operations from inside state and local government election offices, predominantly in the Democrat-leaning areas of swing states. Independent researchers have shown the effect of this takeover of government election offices was extremely partisan and favored Democrats overwhelmingly.

Dems Put Power over Kids

By Rob Meyne

Politicians love to claim their actions are focused on helping “the children.” If you haven’t heard that claim, you must not be listening. Until the past couple of decades, protecting children from harm was considered a non-debatable objective around which we could all rally. Today? Not so simple.

Places like Alabama, Florida, and Texas lay bare a fundamental difference between modern leftists and conservatives. Both parties claim to care about children. Only one is willing to oppose abortion of full-term babies or set a minimum age for instruction on explicit sexual subjects. Guess which is which?

The parental rights bill in Florida has been criticized for being anti-gay, hateful, and putting at risk the lives of children. None of those criticisms is factual. All the law does is prevent instruction about sexual orientation in third grade or below or in a way that isn’t age appropriate. Got it? Doesn’t sound controversial, does it? Well, it shouldn’t be. But the Dems have become such a wholly owned subsidiary of the far left that there is almost nothing too extreme for them.

If you oppose the new Florida law, it means you support teaching about sexual orientation and related issues to our youngest children. Nothing in the bill prevents a male teacher from telling them he has a husband, or a sister who identifies as a male. Nothing prevents anyone from using the word “gay.” As is often the case, the left has to lie about the actions of conservatives in order to try to defend the indefensible. Democratic leaders can’t even agree there should be a minimum age for instruction about sex.

We Know How to Predict Inflation

By Rob Meyne / Dr. Robert Scott

Any list of the greatest economists of the twentieth century will include Dr. Milton Friedman of the University of Chicago. He wrote a number of essential economic treatises, and Free to Choose, written with his wife Rose, was a bestseller. Very few people have made a greater impact on economic thought and policy. (1)

Friedman had a knack for putting complex factors like inflation in simple terms. Few economic factors have a greater impact on average Americans. Prices have increased dramatically in the past year as Americans feel the pain at the gas pump, in the grocery, housing, and more.

Politicians and pundits assign blame. Currently, the Biden Administration is referring to the “Putin price hike,” blaming the Soviet leader for domestic inflation, even though the great majority of the price hikes under Biden came long before the war in Ukraine.

Fortunately, we can look to Dr. Friedman for nonpartisan insight. He said: “Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon.” (2) He made analysis of inflation easier by using the following equation:

    Inflation equals
  • Percentage of increase in the money supply
  • – MINUS –
  • Percentage of increase in real GDP

When Dr. Friedman was discussing inflation in the late 1970s, he said real GDP (output) historically grew at about 3% annually. The actual inflation adjusted figure, from 1947 to 2020, was 3.1% per year.

Professor Friedman observed the money supply had been increasing by 10% per year. With a 3% increase in output, his equation projected inflation would be about 7%. That was incredibly accurate; the actual rate was 6.8%! In other words, the equation works.

Media Bias Threatens Our Republic

By Rob Meyne

There are countless times, in any given day, you are likely to hear references to “two Americas.” Depending on the speaker, issue, and occasion, one person may not even be picturing the same two Americas as another.

Americans get their information from different sources and in ways that didn’t exist not that long ago. Whatever you presume to be a “fact” depends on where you get news, who you trust, and what they believe.

People also believe something a friend or family member tells them more easily than information from another source. Whether it is true has nothing to do with it. Countless Americans think Donald Trump said, “Nazis and white supremacists are fine people” or that a new bill in Florida prohibits people from saying the word “gay,” or that Republican-sponsored state laws restrict voting rights of black Americans. None of these three beliefs is true. But people have heard it and assume it is true.

The digital age has increased the amount of information we can access, but its reliability isn’t what it once was. Most people don’t have the time, interest, or expertise to check key facts in every story they come across. It is understandable. People are busy.

All Trump. All the Time?

April Musings

If you’re looking for an April Fool’s joke, you fill find him at the White House. In the meantime, here is random thought to ponder.

If the GOP wins the House, how about electing Donald Trump as Speaker? None of this is to suggest it is seriously being considered, and we wouldn’t know if it were. But… is it fair to say that would shake things up a bit?

The entire focus of Congress would be changed overnight. The House could begin investigating the scandals of the Democratic Party, the corruption of the intelligence community, the Biden Crime Family. And more.

How quickly would Adam Schiff need a clear pair of underwear if he heard Trump would be Speaker? Would Eric Swallwell’s former girlfriend/Communist Party of China spy make herself scarce? What would Bubba and the Hildebeast think of it all?

How about if Trump released the names of the Members of Congress who had paid sexual harassment settlements (with your tax dollars)? How about if he released all available information about people who traveled to Orgy Island with Jeffrey Epstein? (If his name is on the list, of course, we wouldn’t count on it being released.)

BTW, if this sounds odd, or unlikely, it is because it is. But for the record, the House can elect anyone they want as Speaker. It does not have to be a U. S. Representative. If they want to, they can elect Bozo the Clown (probably already running as a Democratic Socialist somewhere), Rumer Willis, or Elon Musk’s gardener. Yes, they could elect Trump.

There is a lot of time left, and the GOP has proven it is capable of snatching defeat from the jaws of certain victory. But as of today, things look grim for team Pelosi/AOC/Omar. It is fun to speculate.

The idea of Trump becoming speaker has been floated by some of his supporters, as well as those who would like to see someone else be the nominee in 2024. See CNNPolitics: Donald Trump for … speaker of the House? – and here Matt Gaetz says he will nominate Donald Trump for House speaker – CNNPolitics.

Would making Trump Speaker be a wise political move? Maybe not. But it would have the advantage of stopping the Democratic witch hunts in their tracks, guaranteeing the far-left Biden agenda would stall, and paving the way for someone else to run as a Republican for president. As Speaker, Trump wouldn’t have to campaign for anything and could become a central feature in a potential Republican lock on the federal government in 2025.

Everybody wins!

Some Democratic Options for the Next Election

Anyone who spent the 2020 campaign warning people that Biden would be a disaster as president is already tired of telling people “I told you so.” In fact, anyone who is conservative, supports individual freedom, or voted for Donald Trump has already had numerous opportunities to point out we were right.

Biden was part of the broader Democratic Party effort to move the nation as far left as possible, as quickly as possible. Biden pretended to be a moderate when it suited his near-term goals, but his actions (or those by whoever is running the country) have shown he is serious, as he has promised, about being the most progressive/leftist/politically correct/liberal president ever.

Democratic leadership is so inflexibly committed to pushing their extreme agenda that even the possibility of a bad year at the polls does not seem to dissuade them. Most surveys indicate Biden’s party will be beaten like a rented mule this November. And in 2024, depending on who they offer up.

There is a lot of time left, and the GOP has proven it is capable of snatching defeat from the jaws of certain victory. But as of today, things look grim for team Pelosi/AOC/Omar.

Which brings us to speculation. Continue reading
