An ‘Independent Judiciary’ Reality Check

An ‘Independent Judiciary’ Reality Check

on November 29, 2018, 5:42 AM / in Opinion

Chief Justice John Roberts’s assertion that we have an “independent judiciary” lacks credibility. “The opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not, not only for themselves, in their own sphere of action, but for the Legislature and Executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a despotic branch.” Thomas Jefferson […]

The Right to Vote, Guaranteed by Patriot Veterans

on November 8, 2018, 7:45 AM / in Opinion

It is a disgraceful irony that the freedom of those who advocate statist tyranny is ensured by generations of Patriot veterans who have defended Liberty. “Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, ‘What should be the reward of such sacrifices?’ … If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of […]

Editor’s Note: Normally we don’t post pleas for contributions. We conclude that it is not our business, we being strictly free. We do this to avoid all the incumbent es of government influences. But to some it is a business as well as a passion. I meet Mark Alexander 21 years ago by chance and I have been a loyal […]

The Trump Administration’s Extraordinary Midterm Record

on November 1, 2018, 8:38 AM / in Opinion

This election is a referendum on Demo voters’ IQ and the MSM’s chokehold on their opinion. “Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual — or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of […]

Kanye v Kaepernick — Breaking Ranks

on October 18, 2018, 6:46 AM / in Opinion

Any break from the Democrat Party orthodoxy poses an existential threat to their electability. “We are either a United people, or we are not. If the former, let us, in all matters of general concern act as a nation, which have national objects to promote, and a national character to support. If we are not, let us no longer act […]

The Law of Unintended Consequences “The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their Constitutions of Government.

Toxic Femininity and the #MeToo Mob: Weaponizing Emotional Distress

on October 11, 2018, 8:02 AM / in Opinion

The manifestation of anger and hatred that defines toxic femininity is increasingly on shameful public display. Did you noticed in the Supreme Court nominee hearings that some women harbor unresolved anger toward men? In 2017, the most angry of the lot emerged under the #MeToo identity-politics banner— with legitimate allegations of sexual misconduct in the workplace. Most notable were those that brought down Harvey […]

The Constitution v Birthright Citizenship “Born in other countries, yet believing you could be happy in this, our laws acknowledge, as they should do, your right to join us in society, conforming, as I doubt not you will do, to our established rules.” Thomas Jefferson (1801) There is a raging political debate about immigration in the U.S., or more specifically […]

Dick Durbin (D-IL): “Why [are these protests] happening for the first time in the history of this committee? … You are the nominee of President Donald John Trump.” “Judges, therefore, should be always men of learning and experience in the laws, of exemplary morals, great patience, calmness, coolness, and attention.

36% of Black Americans Support Whom?

on August 30, 2018, 7:37 AM / in Opinion

Democrats and their Leftmedia talkingheads don’t think black lives matter — beyond the voting booth. When the great Stanford economist Thomas Sowell was still writing his syndicated column, he would occasionally submit “Random Thoughts on the Passing Scene.” In one such offering on the prevalence of racism, as a black American he observed, “Racism is not dead, but it is on life support […]

The Demo Degradation of American Patriotism

on August 23, 2018, 7:35 AM / in Opinion

The greatest threat to the First Amendment and freedom of the press is the Leftmedia. “Patriotism is as much a virtue as justice, and is as necessary for the support of societies as natural affection is for the support of families.” —Benjamin Rush (1773) In a non-contextual defense of the mass media, I often see cited the following quote: “Where […]

From Uncivil Discourse to Civil War?

on August 16, 2018, 2:02 PM / in Opinion

Historic socialist assaults on Liberty were not as organized and targeted, nor did they have the tacit approval of a major political party. The Democrat Party’s fastest growing identity-politics constituency has, for the last decade, been coalescing around a theme that is both animating and destructive: Hate. The current chorus of contemptible rhetoric comes from leftist Demo antagonists, their Leftmedia propagandists whose ad revenues depend […]

“You can’t be for big government, big taxes and big bureaucracy and still be for the little guy.” —Ronald Reagan “An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to destroy; because there is a limit beyond which no institution and no property can bear taxation.” —John Marshall (1819) The regulatory cuts ordered by President Donald Trump are already saving consumers billions of […]

By Mark Alexander  |  Patriot Post A Conservative Pretender Case Study: Boyd v Black Across our nation, there are a few hotly contested federal and state Republican primaries in which genuine conservative candidates are facing wealthy pretenders who are recasting themselves as “conservative.” These imitators can fund unlimited advertising and social media buys for their makeovers.
