Unconstitutional Detainment

Whether you’re a staunch conservative or a diehard liberal, you should be appalled at the circumstances surrounding the “Q Anon shaman” in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 siege on Capitol Hill. The shaman, Jacob Chansley, has been denied bail and is still detained after nearly six months. “It’s not just unconstitutional,” says David Freiheit, “it’s cruel and unusual punishment.”

Chansley, who was wearing a horned headdress and carrying what appeared to be a spear draped by the American flag, was arrested for breaching the Capitol building on Jan. 6 and remains jailed on six federal charges. Judge Royce Lamberth denied Chansley’s bail request, citing him as a flight risk. Surprisingly, Lamberth was appointed to the bench by President Reagan.

Not only is Chansley’s detainment unusually cruel, it violates his 8th Amendment rights, which reads: “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel or unusual punishment inflicted.” After reading Lamberth’s order, Freiheit says, “There can be no bail more excessive than no bail. And when you read the justification that the judge is offering to deny bail to Chansley, you’re going to realize that it has nothing to do with justice, it is purely punitive.” Here are the details with Viva Frei’s Freitheit.

Military Fed Up With Biden

Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin (ret.) was one of the former military officers to write an open letter to the Biden Administration, pleading with our current leaders in Washington to do what’s right for our nation and our Constitution. But Boykin says it’s not just those officers dissatisfied with far-left politics encompassing every aspect of our society today, including our military.

Boykin, former commander of the Army’s Green Berets and Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence under George W. Bush, predicts a quiet exit from the military while Biden is Commander in Chief. In fact, one man working in Kuwait told him recently, “I can’t take it anymore.” Here’s more with Boykin on the Glenn Beck Show.

Dr. Fauci Sidesteps Liberty

In a stunning and heated COVID-19 pandemic exchange on the House floor, Dr. Anthony Fauci conveniently sidestepped the Bill of Rights, sternly telling U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, “I don’t look at this as a liberty thing. I look at it as a public health thing,” he said. To which Jordan responded, “You think the Constitution is suspended during a pandemic? It’s certainly not.”

The unpleasant discourse exploded following Jordan’s simple question: “When do Americans get their freedom back?” When Fauci failed to answer adequately, an infuriated Jordan continued to address the litany of assaults on our freedoms and liberty during the pandemic, now in its second year, from Draconian lockdowns and stay-at-home orders to senseless mandates regarding masks and vaccinations. Fauci, of course, danced around the issue with the usual Deep State rhetoric. Here’s more of the clash on Purple Soul.




Attorney Schoen Speaks Out

In a telling and reflective interview with Sara Carter, attorney Doug Schoen says the recent impeachment trial of President Trump was a dangerous broadside attack on the integrity of the institution of the Presidency.

Schoen, a civil libertarian who’s also defended the Democrats in past cases, says his main goal in the trial was to defend the Constitution. As for the Democrat Party’s prosecution, “Partisan weaponization of the impeachment process, partisan purposes, partisan agenda,” Schoen says. “Their main goal: bar Donald Trump from ever running for the Presidency again and, in fact, disenfranchising at least 74 million voters.”

Here’s more with Carter and Schoen, who describes how he came to be the lead attorney on Trump’s defense team.

Congress Targeting Americans

Following the unfortunate siege on Capitol Hill on Jan. 6, lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have set their sights on quelling domestic terrorism, especially white supremacists. Be afraid, they say. Be very afraid of what can happen to your children and your neighbors. “It sounds like some kind of strange, bubbling, percolating monster in America that we have to be scared of,” says Sara Carter.

You’d think these guys were talking about al-Qaeda, the Islamic states or other foreign terrorists. Truth is, they’re coming after Americans and they’re drafting domestic terrorism laws as we speak. Join Carter as she discusses why we should be worried and why these laws are intrusive and against our Constitution.

A Call To Action

Alfie Oakes has had enough. The Naples, Fla., resident has issued a call to action to all small business owners across America to reopen their stores on March 1 in defiance of all lockdown orders.

Oakes, who came under fire from the mainstream media recently for making masks optional at his Seeds to Table Supermarket, calls his initiative Bold Business Owners for Liberty and hopes to send a stern message to Washington that America is waking up and espousing their God-given Constitutional rights. “The 435 people in Washington, D.C. (Congress), they don’t have any more rights than we do. They’re not dictators,” Oakes says. “We going to take back our country.” He says the initiative is putting a legal team together and emphasizes,  “If we all come together on March 1, thousands of us, they won’t be able to stop us.”




Limbaugh Was One Of A Kind

The more you listened to the conservative prose of Rush Limbaugh, the more you were proud to be an American. He had that special, albeit brash, aura about him that exuded confidence, control. It was evident in his daily radio show intro, following the theme song, which was an instrumental version of “My City is Gone,” by The Pretenders. Rush would begin each show with, “Firmly ensconced behind the Golden EIB Microphone in the prestigious Attila the Hun Chair at the Limbaugh Institute for Advanced Conservative Studies.” EIB was an acronym for excellence in broadcasting.

Limbaugh was one of a kind. He was not only the godfather of conservative talk radio, but probably talk radio in general. He educated generations from all ilks of life on the values of faith and family, touting the virtues of small government, liberty and the Constitution. He was there to thwart assaults on the first and second amendments, and to spread the evil of onerous taxation and frivolous spending.

To take in an episode of Limbaugh’s daily show was akin to the gratification you get from reading a fine novel or watching one of the film classics. Interspersed in his daily discourse were his popular Rushisms. Following many a commercial break, he would launch his next segment with, “I’m your host Rush Limbaugh, with half my brain tied behind my back just to make it fair.” Or he would refer to himself as “Talent on loan from God.” He often qualified his comments by saying, “When I talk about myself it’s satirical.”

When quoting public figures, he often would attempt to impersonate them the best he could, such as President Clinton’s southern drawl or President Obama’s choppy delivery. He sometimes called himself El Rushbo, The Fourth Branch of Government and A Weapon of Mass Instruction. Love him or hate him, he commanded much respect behind the EIB mic. The world has lost an icon and he will be missed. RIP dear patriot.

In the following video, President Trump breaks his self-imposed silence and reacts to Limbaugh’s death on Fox News.

Trump Acquittal Inevitable

It sounds like people across the political spectrum admit and concede that next week’s sham impeachment trial of President Trump will ultimately end in an acquittal, but the corrupt Democrat Party, with the aid of the mainstream media, is proceeding with the show only to gain political points.

Rep. Jim Jordan tells Fox News’ Shannon Bream that the Democrats are obsessed with destroying Trump and have been since he took office, but their tactics are doomed for failure. “They’re not going to prevail, because there are strong arguments for the President,” Jordan says. He points to the Constitutional argument that you can’t remove a President that’s already gone, as evidenced by Chief Justice John Roberts’ refusal to preside over the trial because Trump has already left office. Then there’s the question of due process: there were no depositions, no witnesses, no hearings, no cross examinations. In other words, case closed.

Jordan and Bream also discuss the growing concern for the GOP over Rep. Liz Cheney’s impeachment vote and the Democrats’ attempt to censor Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, and remove her from committee assignments over what they deem “disturbing” social media posts.

How To Drain The Swamp

How exactly do you go about draining The Swamp? First off, says Liz Wheeler, you can’t successfully drain The Swamp, unless you know where it came from.

The former One America News anchor defines The Swamp, or Deep State, as the Administrative State, composed of government employees and officials in agencies of the Executive Branch of federal government, who are not elected, not appointed, have no accountability to voters, are nearly impossible to fire, yet have the power to impose rules and regulations on we the people.

So how did the Deep State get so entrenched in our government? Short answer: Blame the progressives. They attacked our constitutional government’s enshrined view of limited government, beginning with President Woodrow Wilson and his radical ideas, followed by FDR’s  progressive New Deal and President Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society, all which damaged the separation of powers envisioned by our founding fathers and empowered Swamp creatures to rule behind the backs of our elected officials.

Wheeler says firing these leaches won’t solve the problem and neither will one President. The answer to fixing the fundamental problem requires the Legislative Branch to stop delegating power to executive agencies and for the judiciary to reject the Administrative State on a Constitutional basis. Problem is, members of Congress–both Democrats and Republicans–don’t want to drain The Swamp. Here’s more with Wheeler.
