Democrat Peddles Conspiracy Theory Regarding Suicide Of Republican

Conspiracy theory provides comfort for those who cannot accept that real life is uncontrollable, and supplies them with the notion that evil, powerful people assassinate those who threaten their power. It also allows them ready-made defenses when investigations provide no hard evidence for their scenarios; they claim that the very absence of corroborating truth for their assertions show that the conspiracy is alive and well in the government and, thus is covering-up evidence that implicates them. This example of unsubstantiated accusations practically owned by the Grassy Knoll School of history is being practiced by Democrats hoping that some of the mud they are continuously throwing at Republicans will stick.

Democrats Continue Peddling False Information Deliberately

While Democrats feverishly attempt to link the Trump campaign with Russia, there is actual proof that the Clinton campaign had its own unsavory ties to Russia by peddling disinformation planted by Moscow. The disinformation in question concerns sources in Russia telling a former British spy named Christopher Steele that the Trump campaign aided the effort of Russia to hack Clinton campaign computers. Steele had his own ties to the Clinton campaign when researching the charges via “information” given to him by Russian sources. A Clinton donor paid for Steele’s researches via Fusion GPS, a company that gathers partisan information for Democrats to use against the GOP. After receiving the dossier, Fusion handed it immediately over to Democrats and the mainstream media. The Clinton campaign and Democrats peddled the supposed criminal activities their opponents engaged in with help from the Kremlin that resulted in Trump’s victory. Keep Reading

Sanders Challenged By Democrat Who Blames The Senator For Trump’s Win

Disgruntled Democrats have blamed Hillary Clinton’s decisive election loss to Russian hacking, and, among other reasons, on FBI Director James Comey. But Jon Svitavsky blames Clinton’s Democratic challenger during the primaries, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders for Trump’s victory. “I hold him absolutely, centrally responsible for Donald Trump being president,” Svitavsky said. Svitavsky, a Clinton supporter whose energies are usually devoted to championing the homeless, is channeling his anger against Sanders by entering politics for the first time and running against him–even though Sanders has not yet made his campaign for re-election official. Svitavsky also blames Democrats for allowing the self-described Independent into the fold. He said, “I believe that Bernie Sanders’ entire involvement with the Democratic party has been devastating. I think it was a big mistake for the Democratic Party to let him in in the first place.” Despite Sanders overwhelmingly winning the Vermont Democratic primary last year by carrying 85 percent of Democratic voters, Svitavsky smells blood in the water, and believes that grassroots Democrats want Sanders out… Keep Reading

Bad News For Bernie Sanders

Bad news has been piling up for renowned pinko socialist crackpot Bernie Sanders since Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and the DNC screwed him over in his bid to become the Democratic nominee to run against President Trump. The party bosses and delegates carried water for the lesser candidate and greater of two evils, Hillary Clinton, and the result was a November surprise that will be dissected ad infinitum for the rest of our nation’s history. There has been some good news for the Senator. His anti-capitalist ravings have given him abundant wealth, which helped him procure for himself a swanky lakeside retreat in Vermont, his third home. The man who once claimed children are starving because our nation produces too much deodorant is doing well for himself privately by way of the system of economics he publicly excoriates.

Sean Hannity Defies Critics, Extends Invite To Hackers And Leakers To Co-Host His Show

The Seth Rich mystery is an explosive and controversial saga. Believed to be the man who leaked Hillary Clinton’s damaging emails to WikiLeaks, he was gunned down last summer, and the case remains open to this very day. Many questions still remain, and journalists have been reticent to cover the story. Sean Hannity is one of the few with the courage to broach this story, and he refuses to back down. “Would you like to fill in as a host on my radio show? Over 550 stations 14 million listeners,” Hannity said in a Tweet to Kim Dotcom, the international fugitive who claims to have bombshell information proving that Seth Rich leaked Clinton’s emails. He also extended the offer to Julian Assange of Wikileaks, who is apparently considering it. Hannity has already been boycotted for covering the Seth Rich murder story. After FOX News retracted a story about Seth Rich, it was strongly rumored that Hannity would be the next to be ousted from the network. Bill O’Reilly, Megyn… Keep Reading

Alex Jones Apologizes For Coverage Of PizzaGate Conspiracy Allegations

Infowars founder Alex Jones, best known for his bombastic pronouncements of government conspiracy, is apologizing for his coverage of PizzaGate, a theory deduced from Wikileaks disclosures which allege that Comet Ping Pong, run by the well-connected James Alefantis, was the hub of an elite child sex-trafficking network. “I want our viewers and listeners to know that we regret any negative impact our commentaries may have had on Mr. Alefantis, Comet Ping Pong, or its employees,” Jones said. “We apologize to the extent our commentaries could be construed as negative statements about Mr. Alefantis or Comet Ping Pong, and we hope that anyone else involved in commenting on Pizzagate will do the same thing.” Keep Reading

Why Does The Left Riot? Because They Don’t Work!

On Saturday, hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets of Washington D.C. to express their disdain for the live incarnation of sexism, President Donald J. Trump himself, and the misogynist patriarchy during the Women’s March on Washington. Throughout the 2016 election cycle, massive and unprecedented rioting and protesting has taken place at Trump rallies, after election night, and again during and after the inauguration. What brings the left out in force to riot? And why weren’t Republicans doing the same thing to President Obama, Bernie Sanders, and Hillary Clinton? Rioting became out of control during several Trump rallies this past year, the most notable being the March 11th, 2016 rally at The University of Illinois in Chicago. Trump was forced to cancel the event after agitators violently clashed with Trump supporters inside and outside the venue. I attended another Trump event days later. Astroturfed protesters showed up in force carrying Mexican, and ironically, Soviet flags. As I said at the time, they were the worst behaved people… Keep Reading

The Solution To Firearmphobia: Education

On a variety of issues ranging from same-sex marriage to transgenderism to Islam, the Left has called for a more informed and accepting public. On one issue, however, it seems to benefit them to keep the public in the dark: firearms and the second amendment. Passing modern gun-control schemes such as an ‘assault weapons’ ban and a ban on ‘high capacity’ magazines intrinsically requires an ignorant public. The reason why so many folks are anti-gun is simply because a large swath of the general population doesn’t really know all that much about guns. With only about 1/3 of Americans owning a firearm, the rest don’t have much of a reason to learn about guns, much less the laws surrounding them. Keep Reading

Denial And Dudgeon In The Millennial Generation

The following may seem a little harsh, but please keep in mind that everything I’m about to write is out of genuine concern for our friends on the left, particularly those of the millennial generation. They say children are our future and with that in mind, I’ve become increasingly concerned about the mental health and well-being of people my age, and even those who are younger. At first glance, it appears as though our liberal friends have lost their collective mind. My first real memory of politics was watching George H. W. Bush mop the floor with Michael Dukakis back in 1988. I was almost 6-years-old, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Throughout the course of the past twenty-eight years I’ve watched the left slowly creep toward the edge of insanity, but never have I seen them take a flying leap into the depths of madness like they have since President Barack Obama took power.

Obama Attacks Moscow To Salvage His Legacy

Try as he might to salvage what’s left of his tarnished legacy, President Obama can’t seem to avoid humiliating himself on his way out of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. A year or two ago it became painfully apparent that George W. Bush was no longer a viable excuse for Mr. Obama’s own failings and since that time our outgoing Lame-Duck-in-Chief has been grasping desperately for some new bogeyman to point to for the cause of his presidential woes. The latest bogeyman/strawman/red herring has in recent months become Russia and its strongman president, Vladmir Putin. I won’t get into the gory details of the tenuous link proposed between the Kremlin and the DNC hacks, it’s been rehashed ad nauseum at this point. What’s most interesting to me are Mr. Obama’s self-inflicted humiliations and those doled out to him by his nemesis in Moscow. Keep Reading

Should The FBI Have Waited For Clinton Investigation Until After The Election?

Every election has its defining moments where the flow takes swift turns and everything changes. This year had a number of those moments and they were especially important, given how critical of a cycle we had this year. The successor to President Barack Obama is critical, because it comes down to upholding his legacy or undoing it. Hillary Clinton, a one-time election opponent of the President, would represent a continuation of the liberal agenda. Donald Trump, a political newcomer and lifelong businessman, would represent a departure from many of the President’s key policy points. For this reason, many argued that the Federal Bureau of Investigation should have stayed out of the election. Keep Reading

The Slippery Slope Of Progressivism

In the lexicon of modern American politics, there are few pieces of rhetoric more likely to elicit an eye roll from the Left than the slippery slope argument. Whether it’s in response to gun control measures or gay marriage legalization, progressives never tire of castigating conservatives for their hysteria in the face of progress and equality. This argument has recently found reincarnation in the form of debates surrounding the use of gender pronouns and fake news. Those against any legislative attempts at regulation of these issues assert that such laws would pave the way to the restriction of the First Amendment and freedom of speech. While those in favor of such legislation contend that it is necessary for the improvement of society. Setting aside for a moment the irony of progressives criticizing emotional rhetoric, it is the nature of the progressive ideology that creates the slippery slope. Progressivism feeds on the correction of perceived injustices and inequalities. It is also an ideology that is incredibly absolutist in its views. It doesn’t merely try… Keep Reading

Fake News: The Alibi Of Tyrants

A few days ago, Hillary Clinton gave a speech on Capitol Hill to pay homage to outgoing Senator Harry Reid. It should have been a happy occasion; Senator Reid’s tenure in congress has been a blight on our nation for decades, we should celebrate his departure from government. But instead, Mrs. Clinton took it as an opportunity to condemn an outbreak of “fake news” sweeping the nation and she was careful to characterize her concerns as being solely humanitarian. Lives are at risk, she says. Admonitions about humanity aside, Mrs. Clinton and the Democratic Party are, in truth, particularly outraged by fake news for having allegedly cost her the presidency. She and many others claim that the Russian government is directly responsible for the dissemination of fictitious stories that resulted in an undue benefit for Donald Trump. The sources of this bad information are a number of hastily thrown together websites, often with URLs that imitate existing sites, such as Drudge or ABC News.

Chickens And Windmills

Much has happened in the news since Thanksgiving, and there are several items that deserve attention. First: At long last, Fidel Castro is finally dead. It is unfortunate so many people on the left glorify this despicable human being and, by extension, the decades of repression and violence he inflicted upon the inmates of the island prison otherwise known as Cuba. His avid fan base might be quick to proclaim that he provided his people with free healthcare. Those who know better should be quick to reply that at that price it was worth every penny. The quality of Cuban healthcare is stellar if you’re a party elitist or a tourist visiting long enough to get Botox injections or breast implants. Conversely, Cubans on the outside of party favoritism find themselves languishing in crumbling hospitals and clinics with sparse access to competent doctors and medicine. Castro fans might be equally quick to inform us that education in Cuba is provided universally and they have an excellent literacy rate, but… Keep Reading

Mr. Trump, Don’t Let Obama And Clinton Off

After the contentious and bruising 2000 election and it’s aftermath, President Bush refused to go after President Clinton for his misdeeds while president. From Chinagate to Travelgate to using the IRS to target their political opponents, the Clinton crime family needed to be investigated more fully. Our next president must go after the corruption and misconduct of the Obama administration in order not to repeat the mistakes of the past. Last week, President-elect Donald J. Trump revealed that he would not pursue legal action against his former opponent Hillary Clinton for her private email server scandal and the Clinton Foundation scandal. Trump promised, in the presidential debates, to appoint a special prosecutor to look into Clinton’s misconduct were he elected President. On Tuesday, in an interview with the New York Times, President-elect Trump responded to a question about what he would do about investigating Hillary Clinton by saying,”It’s just not something I feel very strongly about.” He added, “I don’t want to hurt the Clintons, I really don’t…She went through… Keep Reading

Hillary’s “Get Out Of Jail Free” Cards

Donald Trump openly talked about sending Hillary to prison while on stage with her during a debate. Many of us would like to see Hillary Clinton held accountable for her past actions. And yet a lot of leftists who wanted George W. Bush tried for war crimes have suddenly decided that arresting former government officials isn’t always pragmatic. The former Secretary of State and presidential candidate still has a number of options left to stay out of Club Fed. Obama could pardon her.  A pardon would end all discussion of Mrs. Clinton serving time for Emailgate, and Obama has until January 20th to decide if that’s what he wants to do. Like Richard Nixon, Hillary doesn’t even need to be indicted in order to receive a blanket pardon for anything she did or may have done while serving as Secretary of State. The drawback is that accepting the pardon could be seen as an admission of guilt, and therefore tarnish her legacy. Yet there are many historical figures who have… Keep Reading

The Libertarian Republic Covers For Hillary Clinton, Downplays FBI Probe

As news that the FBI is re-investigating Hillary Clinton broke yesterday, most conservatives and liberty-minded folks were jubilated by the news. However, one entity in the liberty blogosphere did not share that same reaction. The Libertarian Republic, a liberty-oriented news and opinion website, responded to the breaking news in a peculiar and contradictory manner. After initially reporting the story as it was, a very specious clarification article was produced that seemingly took the onus off of Hillary and her e-mails, painting the picture that Comey’s letter was much ado about nothing. The original article was written with the title of “BREAKING: FBI is Now Reopening Clinton Email Case” and gave a straight forward re-telling of the facts that were laid out during the day. “In a shocking turn of events, the FBI has announced they are reopening the Hillary Clinton private email server case,” the article stated. “According to a letter sent by FBI Director James Comey to congressional committee chairs, the re-discovery of ‘new emails…pertinent to the investigation’… Keep Reading

The Rule Of Law: Force When It Suits Me

First, I had to pick myself up from the floor from laughing. Second, I started seeing the flood of gloating comments and “I told you so’s.” It turns out Hillary Clinton’s emails did have some evidence that would sink her ambitions and, this just in: the only way for the FBI to find it amid all the wiped servers was on the phone they confiscated from Anthony Weiner. Swarms of the same people who said the rule of law is dead when the first FBI investigation didn’t recommend pressing charges are now back to say that justice will be served at last. And maybe it will. Maybe Hillary will go to prison, and Vice President-Elect Tim Kaine will have to step up between then and January 20, as per Amendment XX, Section 3 of the Constitution. But personally, I doubt it. I doubt it for the same reason I doubt Donald Trump will face any serious repercussions for what he may or may not have done to so many… Keep Reading

Don’t Believe The Polls Anymore?

If you’ve seen the news, opened social media, or generally lived anywhere other than a desert island for the past few months, you’ve inevitably seen a plethora of presidential polls that all say the same thing: Donald Trump is losing to Hillary in every swing state and a good number of red states. Badly. Like, we are talking Barry Goldwater 1964, in your guts you know he’s nuts, badly. Republican strategists from across the ideological spectrum range from cautious optimism that it’s not all over to circling the wagons around down-ticket campaigns. With the cascade of public opinion falling down around him, what is the Republican nominee doing? Why, writing it off, of course. According to The Hill, Mr. Trump told an audience Tuesday in battleground Colorado, “I don’t believe the polls anymore.” Now don’t get me wrong, it’s a candidate’s job to be optimistic, even in the face of a lost cause. It’s the candidate’s job to keep believing that the party will bounce back from every setback.… Keep Reading

Career Politicians – President Trump Says “You’re Fired!”

Congressional term limits have been a topic of conversation for decades in political circles.  Should members of Congress only be allowed to serve a certain number of terms?  Are career politicians a bad thing or is consistency good?  Well, the subject was once again thrust into the limelight when Presidential Candidate Donald Trump announced on Tuesday at a campaign rally in Colorado his plans to push for a Constitutional amendment imposing Congressional term limits.  Just as he would do in his ever so popular television series The Apprentice, Trump would like to look across the boardroom table at Congress, stick out his hand in that ever so recognizable gesture, and say, “You’re fired!” Maybe that is not such a bad idea, because after all, what has Congress really accomplished in recent history?  Lately, Congress has been nothing more than a place with lots of hot air and big egos, with neither Democrats or Republicans making attempts to try to work together to get things accomplished.  Why should we let people… Keep Reading

Let’s be real, shall we?  Al Mohler won’t be getting as many TV appearances on MSNBC after the election, will he? Of course not. Al’s a brilliant man, but from their perspective, he’s presently fulfilling the role of useful evangelical idiot — the one who can be counted on to dutifully castigate both Hillary and Trump in a way that will only help Hillary.

Here’s Why I Attack Hillary More Than Trump

A close friend of mine has been busting my balls lately with comments that look something like this, “I see you’ve been defending Trump and attacking Hillary quite a bit lately. Can we assume you’re backing Trump now?” It’s not the first time I’ve received a comment like this. In a political climate so polarizing and a social climate that shoves the “vote or die” mantra down our throats, I can understand why someone would come to this conclusion. We have a false range of choices, and people quickly look to the faintest hint of support or dissent as an excuse to slap an easy label on their friends, family, and colleagues. Not to mention, I indeed have attacked Hillary far more than I have Trump. The short answer is no, I do not support Trump. Keep Reading

Fewer Professionals, Please

In the summer of 1769 the town of Boxford, Massachusetts was on edge. Jonathan Ames’ pretty young wife, Ruth, had taken ill, and when Mrs. Kimball, a neighbor, came to visit, Ruth’s mother-in-law claimed the odor coming from her chamber was too foul to admit visitors. Kimball nevertheless insisting on a visit, found the room agreeable, but her friend writhing in pain on the bed and foaming at the mouth. When the young woman died the next day, her body was buried quickly, attended by an out of town minister for a very small group of family, with no coroner examining her remains. Within days, the town was demanding an investigation and a formal accounting that by our standards would seem ghoulish. Gathering at the meeting house, after prayer, a jury of 25 citizens, 13 of whom were physicians, ordered the body to be exhumed, not just for the members of the medical profession, but for the whole town to see.

When Seeing Might Mean Nothing At All

You have had days like the one I’m having — the kind where you can’t seem to get the image of a rubbery-legged Hillary Clinton collapsing like a theme park Pooh bear with heat stroke into the bowels of a black van– scraping off a shoe as she goes. The Democratic nominee for the president of the United States had been turned into a wilting bean bag, and the grim-faced precision of the secret service didn’t make it any better. It made it far more disturbing; they were obviously accustomed to this pudgy, slack-faced paralysis of hers.

Death With Dignity: The Principled Insanity Of Conservative Electoral Strategy

“We don’t win anymore.” If there’s one overwhelmingly applicable truth that conservatarians can glean from the deranged ramblings of Herr Trump, it’s the one his campaign has helped reinforce this cycle at the expense of the constitutional right: we don’t win anymore. Conservatives have become the Cleveland Browns of American politics. Sure, on a good year we can string together a few regular-season wins, but the most we can hope for by the postseason is a high draft pick and a new coach. Only we don’t ever get a new coach. We just keep trying the same failed plays over and over again, causing our veteran players to become resentful and despondent, and our young talent to go all Johnny Manziel. Trump’s army of quasi-populist tariff zombies have joined with Reince Priebus and Republican Party leadership to run roughshod over principled conservatives this year, and the losses are continuing to pile up.

The Trump Campaign Truly Is a Dumpster Fire

Last summer, Donald Trump started his campaign with a bang. Viewed then as a loony outsider, Trump burst on to the scene when voters took to his signature brash tone and “tell it like it is” populist message. Whether it be calling Mexican immigrants rapists, championing a ban on Muslims entering the US, or his naive insistence that Mexico will pay for a border wall–Trump did what he had to do to get the attention and support needed to take his fringe campaign mainstream. Last month, the campaign reached new heights when Trump accepted the Republican nomination for President of the United States. Against all odds, Donald Trump’s primary strategy worked. He single-handedly dismantled one of the deepest benches in recent memory to become the GOP nominee. It’s truly an awe-inspiring accomplishment. However, it is becoming increasingly clear that the same tactics Trump used to win the nomination will cost him the presidency. This is certainly not something his supporters want to hear, and I seriously doubt they will… Keep Reading

Bernie Sanders May Have Sold Out; But His Supporters Will Not

Bernie Sanders may be calling for unity within the Democratic Party, but that doesn’t mean that his supporters will oblige. Yesterday, I spent the day live streaming the Bernie Sanders demonstrations outside of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It took mere moments around these activists to realize that these revolutionaries were not planning to roll over and support the Democratic nominee. I interacted with hundreds of Bernie Sanders supporters throughout the day. Activists and delegates alike were adamant about one thing: their voices were being suppressed and they were tired of taking it lying down. Demonstrators felt betrayed and used by the Democratic Party. With the revelations from Wikileaks, it had pushed many over the edge. The speculation that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) was conspiring against them now became fact to the supporters with the emails released. Many on the streets of Philadelphia were truly angry at the DNC and Hillary Clinton. These were passionate people who whole-heartedly believe in the ideas of progressivism.

Zuckerberg Embraces The Establishment

There are two obvious branches of the economy.  There is the market economy, entirely benevolent in nature and identified by its voluntary and mutually beneficial transactions, its natural coordination of scarce resources, and its ability to increase prosperity.  And the political economy which is entirely malevolent in nature, and is identified by its reliance on coercion and force, its bureaucratic inefficiencies, and its manipulation of fear, greed, and envy to serve the ends of a select few. Actors in both spheres of the economy are driven by a desire to better their own lives, the lives of their loved ones, and their community around them. In the market economy, individuals compete to sell goods and services to other individuals.  These voluntary transactions are mutually beneficial to all parties involved the vast majority of the time precisely due to their voluntary nature (no party would voluntarily enter into the transaction unless they felt they were being served through it).  Rising to the top in the market economy is immensely difficult,… Keep Reading

Laws Are For The Proletariat, Not The Elite

FBI Director James Comey demonstrated that he can take the dance floor and do the Texas Two-Step better than anyone out there. His performance will be heralded for his intellectual ability to build a case that goes in one clear direction, and then swings suddenly and inexplicably the other way.   I am a writer of novels and screenplays. Some of my work will be judged better than others, but at the very least I have avoided the writing sin known as the deus ex machina. This is a device where the writer inserts a totally arbitrary plot development that has nothing to do with what has happened before in order to resolve the story. The inexorable logic of the plot points in one direction, but the storyteller does not want it to end there for one reason or another. Therefore, he just concludes his tale in a way that does not flow from the material.   Readers feel cheated, when they stumble upon a deus ex machina; and… Keep Reading

Hillary, Neocon Hawk Or Sensible Leader?

One of the myths we hear all the time is that Clinton would make a tough and intelligent wartime President. It is true that within the Obama White House Clinton often joined with Panetta and others to advance a more hawkish position. Nevertheless, in almost every instance, she would show herself to be a hawk in the context of a crisis situation. In essence, when the shit hit the fan, she would counsel firing back hard, rather than waiting to see what happens. It can be argued here that Obama’s “wait and see” approach to crisis management actually stopped the terrorists from achieving the larger objective of inciting an overreaction by the “Great Satan.” This may or may not be true, but the relevant point is that Clinton’s hawkishness almost always can be characterized as reactive and crisis specific.   The better question is what approach she would take strategically; or even, for that matter, if she has a determined geopolitical strategy that says where she wants USA policy… Keep Reading

Hillary Clinton: The Undemocratic Nominee

Everyone’s suspicions were confirmed when it was revealed last week that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) had planned on a Hillary Clinton nomination before a single ballot was cast.  Through various leaked documents stretching back to before the voting actually began, we received a first hand look last week at the inner workings of the DNC and their love affair with electing another Clinton.  As it turns out, poor Bernie Sanders never stood a chance, and Democrats everywhere have been made to look like fools for believing their vote actually mattered in this rigged party nomination. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the DNC, has been the puppeteer behind the scenes pulling all the strings, making it virtually impossible for there to be anything but a Clinton on the ticket for the Democrats.  This should really come at no surprise for those familiar with Wasserman Schultz’s history, however, in 2008 she was co-chair for Hillary’s campaign.  This documents seem to solidify the link, and if nothing else, at least give… Keep Reading

Rand Paul’s Former Chief Of Staff Exposes Liberal Hypocrisy On Gun Control

Late yesterday afternoon, the Senate voted on 4 separate gun related amendments to the Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations Act. The four amendments, two sponsored by Republicans and two sponsored by Democrats, were each voted down largely along party lines. The legislation followed a week that started with a shooting in Orlando, Florida that left 50 people dead and more than 50 injured and ended with a 15-hour filibuster by Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) during which he preached “common sense gun reform”. Murphy’s amendments, which were proposed along with Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), would prevent anyone on the “terror watch list” or the “no-fly list” from buying a gun and would expand background checks to all private firearms sales. The current use of these secret FBI lists already violates due process, but their use to limit a constitutional right would mark an unprecedented shredding of the 5th Amendment. Despite the claims of the gun grabbing duo, their “common sense” solutions would result in gross violations of our constitutional rights… Keep Reading
