McDaniel: Second Amendment An Individual Right

By Senator Chris McDaniel

Liberals will never tire in attempting to erode the Constitutional rights of gun owners.

Gun-control advocates complain that the founding fathers never intended firearms to go unregulated, invoking arguments made by United States Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer — a dissenter in the 2008 case of District of Columbia v. Heller, a Supreme Court decision which overturned a Washington, D.C. handgun ban.

As part of his dissent in Heller, Breyer argued that Madison only drafted the Second Amendment because some feared that Congress would call up the state militias and nationalize them. Madison only proposed the amendment, he maintained, to appease skeptics and to “get this document ratified.” [Read more…]

Who Are the Real Fascists? A Pictorial Essay

By Ryan S. Walters

In recent years, and most especially in the days since the election of President Donald Trump, we have experienced a rash of leftist mob violence in streets across the country.  Yet it’s the Left – in the media, academia, and the politicos – who accuse conservatives of being violent, fascists, and even Nazis.  Meryl Streep recently said she was ready to stand up against Trump and his “brownshirts.”

But what is the truth?  The exact opposite.  In a recent interview, Inga Andrews, who was born in Nazi Germany, said it wasn’t Trump who reminded her of Hitler but the rioters in the streets who are trying to stifle free speech!  It was the Brownshirts, or Stormtroopers, whose main job was to … shut down political opposition to the Nazi Party!

So here’s my answer to this question in a pictorial essay!  Enjoy! [Read more…]

McDaniel: Gorsuch and the Hope for Restoration

By Senator Chris McDaniel

Now that President Trump has made his choice for the Court, choosing Judge Neil Gorsuch, which I think is an excellent selection, the brutal fight for his confirmation is about to begin. But just because we could soon control the Court’s direction, does not mean we should place all of our faith in it. [Read more…]

The Left’s Selective Outrage Over Trump’s Immigration Orders

By Ryan S. Walters

Over the weekend we witnessed more outrage from the Left, this time over President Trump’s executive orders that imposed a temporary ban on refugees from seven Muslim nations that have been designated sources of terrorism – Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Yemen, and Somalia. Leftwing activists were most upset that even those who possessed visas and green cards were denied entry, even as they reached US airports, a gaffe that was later fixed. But only a total of 109 people were actually detained. [Read more…]

The Truth Behind the “Women’s March”

By Ryan S. Walters

Sparks flew Sunday night, and into Monday, after Senator Chris McDaniel posted his thoughts on the national “Women’s March” on his Facebook page.

Senator McDaniel wrote:

“So a group of unhappy liberal women marched in Washington DC. We shouldn’t be surprised; almost all liberal women are unhappy. Perhaps there’s a correlation.

Nevertheless, I’m fascinated to see them exercise their First Amendment rights (however objectionable the message).

But I do have a question: if they can afford all those piercings, tattoos, body paintings, signs, and plane tickets, then why do they want us to pay for their birth control?”

McDaniel: Liberals Ignore the Underlying Problem in the Middle East

By Senator Chris McDaniel

We have known the truth for eight years — Barack Obama is no friend of Israel.

In an attempt to gain traction in the never-ending struggle for Mideast peace, the administration, in its waning days, planted its flag squarely behind the Palestinian effort to supplant the nation of Israel.israel

History, though, is not on Obama’s side. As Golda Meir once said, “There is no such thing as a Palestinian people.” She’s correct. There is no Palestinian culture, heritage, or history. There has never been a sovereign entity known as “Palestine.” [Read more…]

1884 & 2016: Private vs. Public Immorality

By Ryan S. Walters

The 2016 presidential race was shaken up recently with the leak of private audio revealing that Republican nominee Donald Trump said something vulgar 11 years ago as a private citizen in what he thought was a private setting. Trump has since apologized.

The timing of the release of the audio couldn’t have been more suspicious, coming just as more revelations divulged more Clinton corruption. Wikileaks released thousands of emails from Clinton aide John Podesta that included snippets of some of Hillary’s secret Wall Street speeches and the illegal campaign coordination with a Super PAC, while a Gucifer disclosure exposed the existence of a Clinton Foundation “pay for play” folder.

Yet the big political talk centered not on Hillary’s corruption – not even her statement in a speech to a foreign bank that she desired “open trade and open borders” throughout the Western Hemisphere – but on Trump’s verbal gaffe, with major Republican leaders cancelling campaign events, while others are calling on the presidential nominee to leave the race in favor of Mike Pence.

As a historian I can tell you we’ve seen this same song and dance before, in the 1884 presidential campaign that turned out to be one of the nastiest on record. That race, like this one, featured two Northern candidates, including a New Yorker, Governor Grover Cleveland, who faced off against James G. Blaine from Maine, a former Speaker of the House, US Senator, and Secretary of State. [Read more…]
