Why Biden/Harris CAN’T Reveal Their Court-Packing Plan

on October 10, 2020, 8:16 AM / in Opinion

Biden, Harris, Pelosi, and Schumer are formidable adversaries of American Liberty. Joe Biden has repeatedly refused to clarify whether he supports or opposes increasing the number of Supreme Court seats — a.k.a. “packing the court” — in order that it will do the Left’s political bidding. Likewise in this week’s VP debate, arrogant leftist Kamala Harris dutifully refused to answer Mike Pence’s repeated questions […]

Warning: A Biden-Harris Constitutional Crisis Just Ahead

on September 22, 2020, 9:31 AM / in Opinion

If the socialist Democrats suffer another Electoral College loss in November, they and their riotous constituents will not go quietly. The Joe Biden/Kamala Harris tag team, combined with the socialist Democrat Party’s collective “enemies of the people,” arguably pose the greatest threat to American Liberty since 1860. Those words will sound too strident for some conservatives who haven’t been paying attention, so it’s high time to […]
