ONCE AGAIN, THE CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE SHINES SUNLIGHT ON THE DENIZENS OF THE SWAMP AND THE LOONS. Way to go, Sundance and Company!
ONCE AGAIN, THE CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE SHINES SUNLIGHT ON THE DENIZENS OF THE SWAMP AND THE LOONS. Way to go, Sundance and Company!
Every once in a while–far more often since Mark Levin decided to write a book on the issue–the subject of a convention of states comes up. This is seen by some people who call themselves “conservatives” as the best chance to rein in Federal power and bring control back to the states themselves. And they CLAIM that there wouldn’t be a “run away” convention–it would NOT overstep its authority–because of the 3/4s rule requiring a super-majority to ratify changes.
Well–WHERE DO I START? FIRST OF ALL, IT ISN’T JUST CONSERVATIVES PUSHING THIS LUNACY. THE LIST OF LEFTIST LOON AND SOROS FUNDED GROUPS ON BOARD IS HUGE. BTW–the YOUNG TURKS ARE FUNDED BY SOROS… AS ARE MANY OF THE GROUPS ON THAT LIST.
So any so-called “conservative” pushing this idiotic notion needs to RESEARCH THE OTHER SUPPORTERS. DIG DEEP. DO YOU WANT TO BE IN BED WITH THE LEFTIST LOONS?
Why would conservatives want to do this? Because they are either constitutionally ignorant (usually the case) OR THEY ARE NOT CONSERVATIVES. To get some perspective here, we have to re-visit the big Hoorah over the GOP convention, and the “rules committee”. You see, when it comes to the GOP convention, THE RULES FOR THE PRIMARY HAVE TO BE ADOPTED BY THE RULES COMMITTEE FOR THE GENERAL. So until the GOP RATIFIED THE EXISTING RULES–The first order of business–they had the ability TO MAKE UP NEW RULES.
And guess what? THE SAME APPLIES TO A CONVENTION OF STATES. Because in reality, under the Constitution, the CONGRESS sets the rules, up to and including scrapping the entire Constitution itself.
BUT IT IS. In 1787, we had “Articles of Confederation”. And the original purpose of the “Constitutional Convention was to AMEND THOSE. But they weren’t “amended”–THEY WERE REPLACED. AND IT CAN HAPPEN AGAIN. HERE is a link to the issues from a Constitutional point of view: CLICK HERE, AND READ ALL THE ASSOCIATED REFERENCES!
If this were such a good idea, would Hamilton have been against it? Would truly CONSERVATIVE SCOTUS justices have been against it? NOPE. They were against this because it is a perfect opportunity to lose everything we have left. Just as people freaked out over the idea that the GOP could change the rules in the middle of the game, people SHOULD BE SAYING NO WAY TO THIS LUNACY. Especially when you research the long long list of leftist loons supporting this.
Until we have drained the swamp–and even AFTER WE HAVE DRAINED THE SWAMP–the ONLY safe way to amend the Constitution is through the standard amendment process. Anything else is absolutely suicidal. SHAME ON THE SO-CALLED CONSERVATIVES/REPUBLICANS ON THIS BANDWAGON. Do your research.
Well, this is where things get…Interesting. You see, BEFORE we trashed this part of the Constitution by ratifying the 17th Amendment, this wouldn’t have been an issue. If you want to learn about WHY the 17th Amendment was pushed by the leftist loons–and also why the leftist loons are pushing for a national popular vote–THEN YOU NEED TO STUDY THIS WEBSITE. When you read and LEARN what our Constitution really gave us in terms of liberty, you’ll be surprised.
But as it stands now–IF neither candidate got the magic 270, then none other than the HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES chooses the President from the 3 candidates with the most votes. And the Senate choose the VP from the 2 candidates with the most electoral votes.
And this is why we NEED TO GET ON OUR ELECTORS AND MAKE SURE THEY KEEP FAITH. Because we sure as HELL can’t trust the House and Senate to do so. Meanwhile, there is another issue rearing its ugly head again–the “convention of states” is back. READ why that is a horrible idea also at the above website–the first link. I will write more on the issue shortly.
Apparently, Dr. Jill Stein–the woman who spent the last half of her campaign cycle saying NEVER HILLARY in as many different ways as possible–has now raised millions in a matter of days to challenge results in at least FOUR states.
Never mind that the deadline has PASSED in at least one–Pennsylvania–and she’d have to go to court. Never mind that NONE of these challenges can benefit her or The Green Party IN ANY WAY AT ALL. Never mind that it says ON HER OWN WEBSITE THAT SHE’S NOT GUARANTEEING THERE WILL BE RECOUNTS.
SHE IS DOING THIS ANYWAY. And No, Jill–we don’t believe you’re doing this to push national, publicly owned voting machines. What we NEED are:
Number three would also help drastically reduce the incidence of long term ID theft/Social Security number fraud as well.But here is the really interesting part: somehow, she has raised far more in a few DAYS than her entire campaign–two times more, at least. And as of yet, I can’t find an outside accounting of where is money is coming from.
And their reasoning is sound. We have NO IDEA where any money will go if recounts don’t happen–to the Green Party? To Jill? To a Home for Superannuated Spaniels? Inquiring minds want to know, Jill.
This means a few things. First, despite what she SAYS, she KNOWS danged well that if she DID flip 3 states and get Hillary the White House, She’d be in line for BIG favors. She also knows that what she is doing is WRONG. Why? Because, again, she is NOT calling for recounts where it would actually benefit the public–border states with large illegal alien populations, states with no ID and shoddy election practices, states where ACTUAL VOTER ISSUES WERE REPORTED ON ELECTION DAY….
Will it do any good? The odds are astonishingly small–just as the odds that 40+ electors will turn “faithless” and vote for Hillary. Even the few electors who have stated they are planning to be faithless have NOT said they will vote Hillary. For more information on the danger of faithless electors, SEE HERE.
Faithless electors endanger the republic, and the Constitution. At this time, we not only need ALL states to have strong criminal or civil penalties on the books for punishing such people–those who live where such laws are in place MUST be punished.
The reasoning here is simple. These people are SUPPOSED to be voting the will of the PEOPLE, since the ratification of the 17th Amendment. To not do so is prima facie evidence they DO NOT RESPECT THE CONSTITUTION OR RULE OF LAW. PERIOD. Just as a juror is told they can not allow their feelings to impact a guilty or innocent vote in a court of law, electors should NOT be allowed to impose their personal morals or feelings on their vote.
IF YOU CAN’T IN GOOD CONSCIENCE VOTE FOR THE CANDIDATE THE PEOPLE CHOSE–STEP ASIDE AND LET SOMEONE ELSE DO THE JOB.
WHAT CAN WE DO?
Well in this the leftist loons are right–we need to call our electors, email them, and if allowed in your state, GO AND WITNESS THE VOTE. We must let them know that they accepted this position of trust on our behalf, and that we the people will NOT TAKE KINDLY TO THEM BOWING TO THREATS. You can find out from your republican party who the electors are, or from your state voting commission/Secretary of State.
In Part 1, linked above, I brought us quickly to where we are right now, looking at a live operation in progress.
AND WE CAN ADD THESE POINTS TO THE ABOVE:
Now comes the “fun” part. As I write this, analysts everywhere are running keyword searches using specialized software on social media, and on the internet in general, to see which of the above topics are propagating, and at what rate they are “going viral”.
They are also determining through semantic analysis and data mining which of these items are propagating NATURALLY–through real, concerned people “liking” and “sharing”, and which are being deliberately propagated by paid posters or bot programs to further a narrative–and who is doing the spreading.
based on what I am seeing and conversation with others, I can SURMISE:
MITTENS IS NOT THE ISSUE, PEOPLE–GETTING THROWN UNDER THE NAZI WHITE SUPREMACIST BUS IS THE ISSUE HERE. Trump and his team have excellent reasons for meeting with GOPers and establishment hacks–as this “transition” is the most dangerous part of the campaign to date. The bigger issue is how we are being tarred with the most toxic brush the leftist loons have.
This is an issue because leftist loons ARE DELUSIONAL. Their leadership and all their news sources are busy convincing them that they are in a fight for their lives. Lucky for us, at the moment they haven’t snapped. But if this level of provocation continues, there can be very serious repercussions. Because the next riots that break out won’t be about breaking windows, they’ll be about breaking heads. And Soros won’t have to pay for them, either.
Part Three will be finished later..gotta clean up after the turkey.
SADLY, PEOPLE STILL PAY ATTENTION TO THE CLOWNS IN SO-CALLED “ENTERTAINMENT”. Sorry, actors, singers, etc… Prancing around on a stage and getting paid 7 figures should NOT, in and of itself, make you a role model for anyone. Nor do I give a flying frog who you voted–or didn’t–vote for. The same goes for sports figures.
When I turn on a Music Award Program or go to a concert or play, I am doing so for ESCAPISM. TO BE ENTERTAINED. IF I WANT POLITICAL OPINION, I WILL WATCH THE FAKE NEWS. Given the cost of a concert or play these days, the last thing I want to end up paying for is to listen to someone who is SUPPOSED TO BE ACTING, OR SINGING, RANTING ABOUT POLITICS.
I’m glad Kanye West apparently now supports Trump. Way cool. But had I been at his concerts before he got checked into a hospital and had been subjected to his rants–I’d feel cheated, as I would only spend that kind of money for his music (were I a fan, and I am not).
Hamilton, the musical, has now become household news. Not because it is good–given it’s entirely fictional, and any resemblance to the beliefs or life of Alexander Hamilton is strictly coincidental, if you’re looking for accuracy, SELL YOUR TICKETS NOW. And from the thoughtful reviews I have read, it is a typical complete fabrication steeped with leftist lunacy and SJW themes.
YEP–Even Snopes got this one. NON-WHITE ACTORS… Funny, given Hamilton and everyone of note in his career was white. But racial issues aside, the ad likely violates the SJW driven laws in NYC, as you can see in the above link. Gotta love the leftist loons. Not only re-write the man’s life, but let’s throw in some overt racism.
Mike Pence, our new VP elect, took his family to see this trash. But this isn’t about his lamentable lack of taste, it’s about the lamentable lack of professionalism on the part of Aaron Burr (I didn’t know he was black…). Pence and family were BOOED by leftist loons when they arrived–incredibly rude in and of itself. As much as I despise Obama and his merrie minions, if I were unlucky enough to be in the same theater with him and his family, I at least would have the manners not to BOO. Or applaud their arrival. THEY ARE PLAY GOERS, THERE TO BE ENTERTAINED, PEOPLE.
But expecting leftist loons to have any courtesy is to be a cockeyed optimist.
Then, at the end of the play, Aaron Burr decided to lecture our VP elect, and make a public appeal for kindness, or some such nonsense. Which is entirely out of bounds, because as I stated at the outset of this article–THESE ARE ENTERTAINERS. THE MAN WAS NOT THERE IN AN OFFICIAL CAPACITY, HE WAS SIMPLY TRYING TO SEE THE SIGHTS OF NEW YORK CITY. This behavior is utterly rude, tasteless and classless regardless of the tone or content of the speech.
Of course the rest of the leftist loons thought this was utterly amazing, wonderful, powerful, whatever the buzzword/talking point of the day is. No, it isn’t. Back when common courtesy was still common, this would have been roundly condemned, and rightly so–BECAUSE THEATER AND ENTERTAINMENT ARE MEANT TO GIVE YOU A BREAK FROM THE WORLD.
NOTE TO ALL–THE FIRST AMENDMENT DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO SAY WHAT YOU WISH ON TWITTER, FACEBOOK, FORUMS, IN THEATERS. ALL IT SAYS IS THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CAN’T INFRINGE ON YOUR SPEECH. PRIVATELY OWNED AND PUBLIC BUSINESSES, AND STATE GOVERNMENTS, CAN.
Sorry, conservatives and leftist loons alike–Facebook, Twitter, Disqus, and every website on the internet can lay down rules and “censor” your speech. THAT IS WHY WEBSITES HAVE TERMS OF SERVICE, THAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO READ BEFORE AGREEING TO THEM. EVEN IF YOUR SPEECH ITSELF IS PROTECTED SPEECH, YOU CAN BE CENSORED IF YOU ACCEPTED CENSORSHIP.
The same holds true with your 4th amendment rights. If you take a job where random drug tests are a condition of employment, you have actively chosen to partially surrender your 4th amendment rights. The same is true if you fly commercially–TSA and their procedures are a condition of travel. If you don’t want to be treated like cattle–STOP FLYING. PERIOD.
The entertainers and actors discussed above were, in fact, engaging in protected speech. They just happened to be doing it in a context that is inappropriate and rude. So they are rude, boorish, and believe they have relevance they don’t have–other than with other leftist loons, of course. I boycott such people and the events they hold because they have provided ample evidence that I run the risk of having to stomach a lecture or rant when I only want theater, or a concert. And if enough people boycott–they will either learn manners and keep their Soapbox speeches for after show interviews, or new stars will rise that get the message.
OF COURSE YOU ARE BEING CENSORED. THESE COMPANIES ARE NOT ONLY OWNED BY LEFTIST LOONS, THEY ARE INFESTED WITH USERS WHO AGREE WITH THEIR POLICIES.
There are things you can do to make a difference:
I am pAst the point of patience with many conservatives and right wing people, because rather than stand your ground and work within the system to change it–and we have the numbers to do so–they choose to get sanctimonious, grab their toys and go home, then they have the idiocy to complain all over the place that there is no conservative alternative to the current toxic social media. WE CAN’T FIX THINGS UNLESS WE GET INVOLVED, PEOPLE. OUR FOUNDERS WOULDN’T HAVE WALKED AWAY. THEY DIDN’T WALK AWAY. THEY FOUGHT. SO IF YOU’RE NOT GOING TO FIGHT, SHUT THE HELL UP AND GET OUT OF THE WAY OF THOSE OF US WHO ARE FIGHTING.
We saw the great GrubHub debacle, plus the Tech CEOs who stepped in the mess and were unable to get free despite their best excuses–“I WAS HACKED!” “IT WAS A BAD JOKE!”
NOTE TO CEOs, ESPECIALLY OF TECH FIRMS:
PEPSICO’S CEO DID NOT DISS TRUMP–THAT WAS AGITPROP, FOLKS. IF YOU’RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH MASS PERCEPTION MANAGEMENT, THEN READ THE MATH GEEKS FROM HELL SECTION OF THIS BLOG!
Pepsico is in a long term partnership with none other than the CLINTON FOUNDATION. For those who have missed the news, the Clinton foundation isn’t a real charity. It’s a thinly veiled cash cow/personal piggy bank for Hillary and family.
THESE REASONS ALONE ARE SUFFICIENT TO BOYCOTT PEPSICO.
So the Penzey’s CEO–who basically stole the name from his sister, who now runs The Spice House, flat out said in his email that if you voted for the racist, then you could take a hike. Fine. His choice.
But he didn’t stop there–read his follow up Facebook post. Apparently, we who voted for the racist and thereby committed the single most racist act in the history of this nation, are supposed to atone by making a generous donation to one of his two favorite hate groups–the ACLU or the SPLC, and leave the receipt out so our younger, more evolved and tolerant children can see the depth of our atonement.
I’m glad I hadn’t stocked up on my gourmet spices yet–I went to the Spice House online instead, and got some nice items. And with any luck, as more ordinary Americans who know better than to always believe the Main Stream Media find out what an absolute ass this man is, they will do the same.
It’s bad enough that the owner of a business would decide to label 60 million people as racists. But to then lecture us, and deign to offer us advice on how to regain the companionship of our families is going way, way too far.
