Levin: Sessions Doing Injustice by Sitting Silently on Constitutional Issues

by rickwells.us

{ rickwells.us } ~ On his nationally syndicated radio talk show Monday, host Mark Levin attacked Attorney General Jeff Sessions for “doing a grave injustice… to the Constitution and the nation by sitting silently on what are the significant constitutional issues” concerning the Russia investigation and President Donald Trump. Levin reproached U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions for not affirming the Justice Department’s own memorandum concerning the indictment of a sitting president, Levin asking in recent past, “What authority does the Special Counsel Robert Mueller have to even contemplate indicting a president?” Levin further argued that the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel violates the Appointments Clause of the Constitution. Levin said , if you’re concerned about our constitutional order, or what’s left of it, if you’re concerned about separation of powers, if you’re concerned about the ability of a president of the United States to do his job while in office, then why wouldn’t you raise these concerns? Why don’t the media raise these concerns, the dummycrats-democrats raise these concerns, the Never-Trumpers raise these concerns? Because they don’t worry about it. They’re not concerned about it… https://rickwells.us/levin-sessions-constitutional-issues/

dummycrats-Democratic Socialism Taxing Away Your Wealth

by Dustin Koellhoffer

{ ipatriot.com } ~ dummycrats-Democrats originally came up with this analogy declaring that it applied to working people voting Republican… Last any intelligent people checked, Col. Sanders was not offering chickens jobs! Like South Americans who flee socialist states, dummycrats-Democrats flee high tax blue states for red state liberty, and then vote for dummycrats-democratic socialists to steal from everyone in their new homes. dummycrats-Democratic socialism is not just an oxymoron. No socialist state is democratic. They are all dictatorships because people do not voluntarily surrender their wealth to the government. Democracies always fail for the simple reason that people can be easily corrupted and those who do not contribute to society suck away wealth as parasites of society. The greatest mistake Republicans ever made was changing voter registration laws to allow everyone to vote. When people who do not pay taxes vote, they vote for panderers who promise to pay them benefits from the taxes of others. In Rome they were called Plebs electing Bread & Circuses. In modern America they are called welfare voter slaves. People with money are fleeing dummycrats-Democrat controlled states as they tax away their prosperity. The unfortunate result of this is that the stupid ones move to Republican controlled states where taxes are low and then vote for more dummycrats-Democrats to take their money. These are the chickens that vote for Col. Sanders. The rest of the masses that vote dummycrats-Democrat don’t pay taxes, Social Security, or FICA for Medicare, but they all take benefits from those. dummycrats-Democrats think paying Social Security to old people is a waste of money. Not one iota of their understanding involves comprehension that old people paid into Social Security their whole working lives for the very purpose of it being dolled back out to them when they could no longer work…  https://ipatriot.com/democratic-socialism-taxing-away-your-wealth/

Is San Diego Punishing Border Wall Contractors – or Themselves?

by constitution.com

{ constitution.com } ~ Oh look. Government is picking winners and losers again. What a stunner… But this time it isn’t the federal government, but one State and several municipalities within this State. If you guessed California, you win absolutely nothing except my admiration and knowledge that you are plugged in. Although certainly my admiration is worth more. The Washington Free Beacon reports that, “San Diego is the latest city poised to join the list of California municipalities demonstrating their opposition to Trump’s promised border wall by punishing businesses involved in working or even bidding on the wall prototypes or other border-wall projects.” More and more cities in the Golden State are simply refusing to do business with any company who has or intends to have anything to do with the Southern border wall. If you are a construction company who built a prototype or bid on anything that has to do with Trump’s wall, you will not be allowed to work or even bid on any San Diego city projects…Calif has gone donkey  https://constitution.com/is-san-diego-punishing-border-wall-contractors-or-themselves/

HHS Rolls Out New, Affordable, Temporary Health Coverage Option — For Some, Not All

by Susan Jones

{ cnsnews.com } ~ The Trump administration on Wednesday issued a final rule to help Americans get short-term, limited-duration, affordable health insurance… that is designed to fill temporary gaps in coverage. The new plan is exempt from the liar-nObamacare requirements that apply to individual health insurance plans, and it comes as dummycrats-Democrats are trying to make health insurance a campaign issue. “We want to expand access to Medicare,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck clown-Schumer told a news conference in June. “Under the Affordable Care Act, Americans have seen insurance premiums rise and choices dwindle,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar. “President Trump is bringing more affordable insurance options back to the market, including through allowing the renewal of short-term plans. These plans aren’t for everyone, but they can provide a much more affordable option for millions of the forgotten men and women left out by the current system.” The new option covers an initial period of less than 12 months, and, taking into account any extensions, a maximum duration of no longer than 36 months in total. It will increase choices for Americans faced with escalating premiums and dwindling options in the individual insurance market, HHS said…  https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/susan-jones/hhs-rolls-out-new-affordable-temporary-health-coverage-option-some-not-all?mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiTjJReE1EQXdaVEkxT0dWaCIsInQiOiJxTERcL1JTeWZUSDlQS1lxYUdBN1wvSWdzcjFxYXlkdHdyOFdkUUFaM2RONGFGaVQ0UUNhY0paTmtlS1A3eXd2cGN5VDJ1c3RsNmczR0YxOGdwVVl0SUtTOG5mTXc1clhcL2pcL3B4d1E2XC9EdWNDQTRtZFwvZnZlZHM2bTQzYjFBZEdTYyJ9

Comedy Is Dead, and Leftists Murdered It

by Louis DeBroux: American leftists are miserable, truly unhappy people.

Everything, it seems, offends them. Marriage and the nuclear family (father, mother, children), the basic unit of all civilizations for millennia, the Left now considers anachronistic, oppressive, and patriarchal. Leftists oppose the free market, which has lifted more people out of poverty than anything else in human history. They hate individual liberty (because bureaucrats can order our lives better than we can), the rich (except rich progressives), the NFL (not because social justice warriors are protesting the anthem but because the sport is too violent, and there aren’t enough minority coaches and owners), steak, school choice, low taxes, the Constitution, plastic straws, country music, Israel, non-coastal Americans……and laughter.

Yes, even comedy, which once brought together Americans of all stripes by highlighting the common struggles and absurdities of life in a humorous way, has come under the angry glare of the American Left. There is no aspect of life or culture remaining that leftists aren’t offended by.

This is leading to the death of comedy. Late-night talk shows were once a welcome distraction from the stresses of life for millions of Americans, but no more. Late-night comedians have become self-righteous moralizers, raging against President Donald Trump as a modern-day American Hitler, while excoriating his supporters as either ignorant rubes or willing accomplices to Trump’s “crimes.” From Jimmy Kimmel’s liar-nObamaCare cry-fests to Stephen Colbert’s vile and graphic anti-Trump shtick, everywhere you turn leftist comedians are trying to out-scold each other over who can hate Trump, Republicans, conservatives, and Christians the most.

In fact, comedy is being replaced by a form of anti-comedy, as personified by an Australian “comedian” named Hannah Gadsby, creator of “Nanette,” a stage show where Gadsby delves into her own experience with “gender and sexual trauma,” and how women and the LGBT crowd are mistreated and silenced. She lashes out at men — all men — for enabling such abuse. The New York Times calls the show “comedy-destroying.” It’s meant as a compliment.

Comedians no longer find common ground all Americans can relate to. Instead, they actively denigrate half the population to the vitriolic glee of the other half.

Of course, not all comedians have followed that path. Many have just given up. Jerry Seinfeld, the undisputed King of Comedy for a generation, quit stand-up comedy because progressives have sucked all of the joy out of it. Instead, Seinfeld is working on the 10th season of a show called “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee,” which is exactly what it sounds like. He avoids political pot-stirring, and just talks humorously about life. He stopped performing on college campuses because today’s young “adults” can’t listen to comedy without getting enraged and offended. Black comedian Chris Rock, known for his no-holds-barred, edgy comedy, stopped performing on college campuses for the same reason.

And in an era when so-called liberals get their “news” from leftist comedians, they have lost the ability to identify hyperbole and satire. Recently, such “objective” journalistic outlets as The Washington Post, ABC News, NBC News, and Google News ran supposed news headlines highlighting attacks on President Trump by late-night talk show hosts. And this is news why? It’s not news, of course, but it allows the MSM another way to attack Trump.

It is a self-destructive cycle. The more hateful the attacks on the president and average Americans by late-night comedians, the more viewers they lose. The more viewers they lose, the more hateful they become in their anti-Trump invective in order to maximize ratings among the remaining, increasingly radical-Left viewership.

As sad as this development is, it’s also dangerous. More and more, young progressives are becoming incapable of facing setbacks, disappointments, and dealing civilly with those of opposing viewpoints. They require safe spaces and “trigger warnings” in order to be protected from “microaggressions” and other leftist boogeymen. They cheer physical violence against political opponents.

The more they indulge this radical infantilism, the more incapable they become of dealing with everyday life.

A recent study by three Harvard University psychologists found, “Trigger warnings may inadvertently undermine some aspects of emotional resilience. … This finding could have significant implications in the context of ongoing cultural debates about the power of language in reinforcing perceived oppression. That is, if we are telling students that words are akin to violence and can cause harm, and then giving them trigger warnings to compound that message, we risk increasing immediate anxiety responses rather than decreasing them.”

This type of emotional crippling has become so pervasive that a new sub-specialty has arisen in the psychiatric field; namely, treatment of “Trump Anxiety Disorder,” in which the patient fears the world ending as a result of the presidency of Donald J. Trump. That’s an odd thing to fear when the economy is finally thriving and life is generally good in America.

Yet many leftists genuinely fear an economic collapse, the death of free speech, nuclear war with North Korea, and other doomsday scenarios, despite no realistic justification. And that’s just not funny.
