The Threat of Lone Wolf Attacks

NRA News

Another excellent Dom Raso video has found its way to my desk and it does not disappoint. Raso lays it out bluntly concerning terrorists here in the US and getting armed to protect yourself and those you love. If you are not armed at all times, you are a sitting duck. You have to prepare yourself for the next San Bernardino, the next Boston, the next Orlando… wherever that may be. ISIS wants you dead… every infidel out there is now a prime target in the US. They are not misunderstood – they have made themselves abundantly clear and they are merciless and lethal.

I’m not sure ‘lone-wolf’ is the right term, but it will do. There are potentially thousands of these individuals across the US now waiting and plotting to kill people… your children, your spouse, your friends and family. This presidency has never seriously addressed the enemies within because they are one of them. Obama coddles and protects the Muslim Brotherhood and radical Islamists. He persecutes Christians and mainstream America. He is bringing terrorists into the US through refugee resettlement and illegal immigration. We need a leader who does not fear our enemies and who does not hesitate to deal with them aggressively. Dom Raso gets that. He knows how Islamists think and he has a message: Wake up, America. We need to make it clear to these radical Islamic cowards that any attempt to take innocent lives in our country will be met with immediate, violent resistance.

Meet NRA News Commentator Dom Raso. A U.S. Navy SEAL veteran, Raso says there are not many things that can compare to serving your country and defending your freedom. That freedom applies to firearms, too. “As long as humans exist, there will be weapons in this world. We’re better off knowing how to use them and apply them for the right reasons—than not knowing how to use them.” Raso is also the founder of Dynamis Alliance, an organization that offers specially designed gear and customized training programs for all levels of experience.

Listen to what Dom Raso has to say on fighting the enemy within:

We need leaders who will get rid of useless gun-free zone laws that give killers a clear advantage over the law-abiding.” He also makes it clear that those who are more concerned with offending our enemy than stopping them are making themselves and other Americans “sheep” and easy targets for radical Islamic terrorists and the lone wolves they inspire: “Rather than addressing this obvious threat with simple, clear solutions, the liberal media, PC politicians and Hollywood know-it-alls attack people like me.” Raso, who spent 12 years hunting down terrorists, points to Benghazi as a prime example of why we cannot trust our politicians or the media to tell the truth or keep us safe: “Only in Washington is it possible for anyone to believe that hundreds of people decided to grab AK-47s and mortars, and started attacking the American consulate in Benghazi because of a stupid video.

Last Wednesday, Raso released “The AR-15: Americans’ Best Defense Against Terror and Crime,” where he called out Hillary Clinton’s hypocrisy for wanting to restrict Second Amendment freedoms, while she has spent the last three decades being protected by guards armed with AR-15s. The video has been viewed over 6 million times and has been covered in more than 75 national and international outlets including Fox News, CNN and The Daily Mail.

Transcript:

ISIS doesn’t have to kill a single American to bring our country to a standstill … as long as someone else does the killing for them.

San Bernardino sound familiar? Maybe the Boston bombing? Or maybe even Hood?

Those weren’t ISIS attacks, and they didn’t need to be.

Their greatest capacity to inflict suffering, panic and paranoia is by inspiring people already living here to act on their own.

How do you stop an American citizen from reading Islamic State propaganda, or watching ISIS videos online, and radicalizing and deciding to go shoot everyone in Times Square?

That problem is on the president’s desk every single day.

And our failure to respond to that problem proves how weak we’ve become.

Rather than addressing this obvious threat with simple, clear solutions, like hardening our defenses, getting rid of the dangerous lie of gun-free zones and allowing Americans their Second Amendment rights anywhere inside our borders … the liberal media, PC politicians and Hollywood know-it-alls attack people like me.

They say I’m the problem.

Really? Me?

Because I tell the truth about cowards who use women and children as human shields … who twist their religion to murder innocent people … I’m the problem.

Because I educate my fellow Americans about the way terrorists think and the things they’re willing to do … I’m the problem.

This is what happens when the country is run by political and media hacks who never even thought of serving their country.

Only in Washington is it possible for anyone to believe that hundreds of people decided to grab AK-47s and mortars, and started attacking the American consulate in Benghazi because of a stupid video.

[CLIP: This is a response to a hateful and offensive video … This is in response to a video that is offensive … We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video … A crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world …]

You know what inspires cowards?

Easy targets. Sheep. People who worry more about offending the enemy than stopping him. People they know don’t have the training to fight back.

If I’m a suicidal terrorist, who do I want to run into on my killing spree—armed civilians who will immediately return fire, or an unarmed, untrained person who will cower in the corner and beg for mercy?

I can’t believe I have to say this, but IT DOESN’T MATTER WHICH CHOICE YOU MAKE … a terrorist is going to want to kill you either way.

These people don’t care what you believe, they don’t care that you have a family, and they don’t care that you volunteer at the Red Cross.

Terrorists do not think like you. THAT IS WHY THEY ARE TERRORISTS.

THEY WILL NOT STOP WANTING TO KILL YOU.

We can’t change that fact. But we can change our mindset.

We need leaders who will get rid of useless gun-free zone laws that give killers a clear advantage over the law-abiding. Leaders who understand the best asset we have to defend ourselves is the freedom of the American people.

The longer it takes us to realize it, the more innocent people will die.

Reagan’s “A Time For Choosing” – History Is Repeating Itself

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Ronald Reagan

I have just recently watched Ronald Reagan’s 1964 speech: “A Time For Choosing” again. It strikes me that exactly what he was putting forth in that speech is as relevant today as it was then. Perhaps even more so. A copy of the full transcript will follow the video at the end of this post, so you can see and hear for yourself the Great Communicator and what he had to say all those years ago. The speech was given during the Barry Goldwater campaign and in effect, launched Ronald Reagan’s political career. His prescient words never cease to affect and move me.

As Reagan pointed out then, the issues confronting us now cross party lines. We no longer are seeing two separate distinct parties. We see Progressives on both sides working towards a political agenda that is Marxist in nature and two potential candidates that once the makeup and reality TV personas are removed, are strikingly similar. Now as then, the Democrats are pushing the ‘peace and prosperity’ line and that we have never had it so good. In fact, Obama has been saying that now for weeks, despite the reality that Americans are living and seeing with their own eyes.

Today, we see an actual unemployment rate north of 30%. That’s not the propagandic lie the masses are told… the laughably low number of 4.7% is sheer horrific revisionism. These are numbers not seen since the Great Depression. Bread lines are hidden using EBT cards… joblessness is white washed with benefits and massaged statistics… debt is simply ignored. Under Obama, we now owe well over $19 Trillion in debt and that doesn’t even begin to cover the unfunded liabilities hanging out there. A nation, even the strongest in the world, cannot long exist under such debt. I also believe our gold vaults are empty. And it is only a matter of time now until the dollar is absolutely worthless on the world market. Our enemies are sure to come calling at that point in time.

As for peace, there is no peace at hand. Thanks to the Progressive policies implemented before and after 9-11, we now live in a new world that is far more dangerous than it ever was before, where Islamic terrorists are running rampant across the planet. We are also actively funding our biggest enemies and the largest purveyors of terrorism on the planet… the Iranians. Obama has granted nuclear weapons to insane theocratic mass murderers and that will not end well.

Hillary Clinton vs. the Second Amendment

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
Hat Tip: The New Americana

Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton just outright refused to say during an interview yesterday that owning a gun was a constitutionally protected right. I’m not surprised in the least, but she is certainly getting more and more brazen about it.

George Stephanopoulos asked her point blank concerning the issue: “Do you believe that an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right, that it’s not linked to service in a militia?” She gave a very weaselly answer: “I think that for most of our history, there was a nuanced reading of the Second Amendment until the decision by the late Justice [Antonin] Scalia, and there was no argument until then that localities and states and the federal government had a right, as we do with every amendment, to impose reasonable regulations,” Clinton responded. That is a flat out lie. The federal government does not have a right period in regards to constitutional amendments to impose regulations. That has never been true. The rights are granted to the people, not the government. Not only did she sidestep the question, she gave an even worse answer here. She is basing an outrageous answer on the fact that the federal government has gotten away with overreach forever and since they have, she feels that it is now the ‘right’ of the government to keep doing so. No… it is not. The government is granted certain powers that the people giveth and the people can taketh from them.

She added, “So I believe we can have common-sense gun safety measures consistent with the Second Amendment.” Not the way she means it and not mandated by the government. Common sense measures are those such as: don’t point the gun at things you don’t mean to shoot; keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot; be absolutely sure of your target and what’s behind it… and then there is Rule #1… all guns are always loaded.

Clinton’s lapdog Stephanopoulos wasn’t done though: “But that’s not what I asked,” Stephanopoulos interjected. “I said, do you believe that their conclusion that an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right?” She didn’t answer once again, but notice the use of ‘if’: “If it is a constitutional right, then it, like every other constitutional right, is subject to reasonable regulations, and what people have done with that decision is to take it as far as they possibly can and reject what has been our history from the very beginning of the republic, where some of the earliest laws that were passed were about firearms.” It is a constitutional right and it is not automatically subject to regulations. It does not say that in the Constitution. The Constitution restrains the government, it does not give them carte blanche to control our rights. Per the Constitution, the government is supposed to keep its damned hands to itself. Constitutionalists interpret the Second Amendment the way it was written and intended… not redefined to fit the agendas of politicians and the federal government. That’s called tyranny.

Clinton

Hillary Clinton did suggest that gun owners do have a right, but then she claimed “the rest of the American public has a right to require certain kinds of regulatory, responsible actions to protect everyone else.” Again, no… they do not. There is no constitutional provision that says that. Clinton simply wants to do away with the Second Amendment altogether, or at the very least, redefine it progressively, so she can disarm America. It’s just that simple.

The Second Amendment states: “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” Hillary’s deflections aside, she chooses not to interpret the meaning of this amendment in the spirit it was meant because it does not fit her political views.

Here’s the full exchange between Clinton and Stephanopoulos:

STEPHANOPOULOS: Let’s talk about the Second Amendment. As you know, Donald Trump has also been out on the stump talking about the Second Amendment and saying you want to abolish the Second Amendment. I know you reject that. But I want to ask you a specific question: Do you believe that an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right – that it’s not linked to service in a militia?

CLINTON: I think that for most of our history there was a nuanced reading of the Second Amendment until the decision by the late Justice (Antonin) Scalia. And there was no argument until then that localities and states and the federal government had a right – as we do with every amendment – to impose reasonable regulations. So I believe we can have common-sense gun safety measures consistent with the Second Amendment. And, in fact, what I have proposed is supported by 90 percent of the American people and more than 75 percent of responsible gun owners. So that is exactly what I think is constitutionally permissible and, once again, you have Donald Trump just making outright fabrications, accusing me of something that is absolutely untrue. But I’m going to continue to speak out for comprehensive background checks; closing the gun show loophole; closing the online loophole; closing the so-called Charleston loophole; reversing the bill that Sen. (Bernie) Sanders voted for and I voted against, giving immunity from liability to gun makers and sellers. I think all of that can and should be done, and it is, in my view, consistent with the Constitution.

STEPHANOPOULOS: And, and the Heller decision also says there can be some restrictions. But that’s not what I asked. I said, do you believe their conclusion that the right to bear arms is a constitutional right?

CLINTON: If it is a constitutional right, then it – like every other constitutional right – is subject to reasonable regulations. And what people have done with that decision is to take it as far as they possible can and reject what has been our history from the very beginning of the republic, where some of the earliest laws that were passed were about firearms. So I think it’s important to recognize that reasonable people can say, as I do, responsible gun owners have a right. I have no objection to that. But the rest of the American public has a right to require certain kinds of regulatory, responsible actions to protect everyone else.

Clinton also defended the idea of a gun tax, but stopped short of endorsing a proposal she first embraced in 1993. Stephanopoulos pressed her on the issue and she demure yet again: “I’m not going to commit to any specific proposal,” she deferred. “That was in the context of health care. When you have mass shootings, you not only have the terrible deaths, you have people who are injured.” Clinton claims the issue came up during a weekend meeting with survivors of the December 2015 terrorist massacre in San Bernardino, CA. “What they talked to me about was, where do they get the financial support to deal with both the physical and the emotional trauma?” she said. “There are real costs that people incur because of the terrible gun violence epidemic. And we have to deal with it. And I’m going to be looking for ways to deal with it.” “I’m not committed to anything other than what I’ve said in this campaign,” she added, “but I do want people to ask themselves, can’t we do better than to have 33,000 people killed every year by guns and many thousands more injured? And I think we can.” Translation… yes, she is all for a gun tax. A massive and crippling one – 25% to be specific.

Via Twitchy:

Hillary’s stance on guns has never changed. She has always been against them.

From Americans for Tax Reform:

In passionate Senate testimony on Sept. 30, 1993, Clinton endorsed a new national 25 percent retail sales tax on guns. Americans for Tax Reform has released footage of Clinton’s visceral facial expressions which shows her nodding fiercely as she endorses the gun tax and as gun owners and dealers are described as “purveyors of violence.”

Clinton’s gun tax endorsement came in response to a question from then-Senator Bill Bradley (D-N.J.), who lamented the “accessibility that guns have in the country today.” He said to Hillary:

There are 276,000 gun dealers in America. There are more gun dealers in America than there are gas stations. That, to me, is a remarkable number and I think it is directly related to the accessibility that guns have in the country today. And if we simply put a 25 percent sales tax on the sale of a gun and raise the dealer’s fees from $30-$75 to $2,500, we would raise $600 million. That would be a tax directly on the purveyors of violence in terms of the sales of the means of violence.

Clinton gave her strong endorsement of the tax, saying, “I am all for that.” She concluded by saying, “I am speaking personally, but I feel very strongly about that.”

Hillary Clinton is one of the most anti-constitutional politicians that has ever disgraced America. Her own words and actions prove it. You should probably listen to more of what she doesn’t say, than what she does say and pay attention to how she nuances her answers. Words matter… the Constitution matters more. The Founding Fathers would have despised Hillary Clinton and would have considered her an enemy of the Republic.

Memorial Day: Reflecting On Heroes

By: Lloyd Marcus

Memorial Day1

A few Memorial Days ago, I recall myself comfy on the sofa overstuffed with cookout delights, watching a documentary on TV about conscientious objectors. The program portrayed these guys as moral superiors. I thought, “You guys are able to bloviate about the evils of war and pursue careers as American artists, college professors and so on because other brave young men went to war to fight for you; defending your freedom.”

Another Memorial Day TV program featured WWII soldier and character actor Charles Durning. Durning earned three Purple Hearts. He was awarded the Bronze and Silver Stars for valor and the World War II Victory Medal. The French consul presented Durning with the National Order of the Legion of Honor.

At the 2008 National Memorial Day Concert, Durning stood at the podium and wept for his fallen brothers. Wow! Do they make character driven courageous men like that anymore? http://1.usa.gov/20mZ3yW

I served in the US Army stationed at Ft Bragg NC, drafted from 1969-1971. My entire battalion received orders for Vietnam accept myself and another soldier. Thus, I never experienced serving in a combat zone.

My buddy, Gerry “Boats” Milhollen experienced combat in Vietnam. He suffered night terrors for several years and other emotional issues which cost him his marriage. Gerry said what pained him and fellow combat vets the most is that unlike other US troops returning from war, they never received a welcome home. Quite the opposite. Vietnam vets were spat upon and called baby killers.

I asked Gerry to share his thoughts in a tribute I recorded a few years ago titled, “Welcome Home Brother.” http://rvrb.fm/1kznUgL

I was in my late teens when my cousin Jackie’s husband Norman Byrd was drafted and sent to Vietnam.

Norman never returned home. It was all pretty surreal. I found his name on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington DC.

My daughter recently retired from the US Navy. She went in directly after high school and worked her way up to retiring as an officer. Her cousins on her mom’s side lived in the mean hood of west Baltimore. Many became addicted to drugs. One of her cousins was murdered by thugs.

I remember my daughter telling me that when she came home on leave after basic training, she immediately noticed that she no longer had much in common with her friends. They were still kids and the military made her an adult.

My daughter said before she retired, it pained her to see what the Navy was becoming. The discipline which had molded and shaped her was being thrown out the window due to political correctness. She said rather than training sailors, she felt like a babysitter.

I heard a black preacher tell his congregation that he would love to see the government go through the ghetto scooping up fatherless young black men for the military. They would learn to shut-up, respect authority and receive a paycheck for a job well done. While the preacher’s comments were tongue-in-cheek, I get his point and agree. Despite it being under attack by Obama http://bit.ly/1RkvWWJ, Leftist social engineering and political correctness, the US military is still a pretty good place to turn youths into responsible adults.

Traveling the country on Tea Party Express, I had the pleasure of meeting Debbie Lee, the gold star mom of Marc Alan Lee, the first Navy Seal to die in Operation Iragi Freedom. In honor of her decorated son, Debbie founded AmericasMightyWarriors.org which helps the families of fallen soldiers. I organized patriot music artists across America to record a song titled, “Taking Back America”. We selected 44 songs from the artists to be included in a project titled, Tea Are The World”. All the proceeds benefit Debbie’s AmericasMightyWarriors.org. http://bit.ly/1YRLAPd

While enjoying your family cookouts, please reflect and give a nod to those whose courage and sacrifice made it all possible; the US military.

Have a happy and blessed Memorial Day.

MEMORIAL DAY: Freedom—We Must be Vigilant in its Preservation

By: Carolyn Alder

Memorial Day

“Memorial Day” was originally known as “Decoration Day.” Graves of soldiers who had given their lives in the Civil War were decorated with flowers to remember and honor their sacrifice. Later, the observance was renamed “Memorial Day,” to honor the sacrifice of all who died in all the wars.  It is a day for solemn reflection on the service and sacrifice of those who paid the ultimate price to preserve freedom.

Americans who died (from the Revolutionary War on) that we might have freedom:

Killed In Action over 1,354,000, plus 88,000 MIA.

(How can we even estimate the number wounded to preserve freedom?)

The Founders and Framers of this nation knew it would require much more than battle and blood to acquire and preserve freedom.  They pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to secure the Blessings of Liberty for their posterity.  The Declaration of Independence declares the principles of freedom; the United States Constitution was their charter to preserve freedom. We call it the Formula for Freedom.

The Founders also knew that we could not retain freedom, liberty and the American Constitutional Republic without being a virtuous and moral people. There are numerous statements to support this principle, however, just quoting from our first 3 Presidents:

President George Washington in his farewell address warned: “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.  In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens.  The mere Politician, equally with the pious man ought to respect and to cherish them (religion & morality). …Let it simply be asked, Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in Courts of Justice?  And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education…reason and experience both forbid us to expect that National morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.  (Sept. 19, 1796)

President John Adams stated, addressing the military, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. … Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.  It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.  (Oct. 11, 1798)  (Concerning his own sons he advised Abigail, “Let them revere nothing but Religion, Morality and Liberty.”)

Thomas Jefferson:  “God who gave us life gave us Liberty at the same time.” (1774)   “Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the People that these liberties are of the Gift of God?  That they are not to be violated but with His wrath?  Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.” (1781)

“There is no more ominous defilement of our Constitution and threat to Liberty ‘endowed by our Creator’ than that of the errant notion of a ‘Wall of Separation’ between our constitutional government and our Creator. … The plethora of fraudulent opinions by judicial activists have for decades ‘interpreted’ the First Amendment to suit their political agendas, placing severe constraints upon the free exercise of religion…to expel religious practice from any and all public forums.”  Essential Liberty Pocket Guide

Our Constitution, written and ratified “in order to secure the Blessings of Liberty”, established a constitutional Republic structured to control the government, not to control the people.  Laws made under the Constitution, the “Supreme Law of the Land”, were to be founded on God’s Law, natural law and natural rights; not rights invented by government or the “whims of man” by those in positions of power.  God’s Law the Foundation of Free Government

John Quincy Adams, our 6th President wrote, “Our political way of life is by the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God, and of course presupposes the existence of God, the moral ruler of the universe, and a rule of right and wrong, of just and unjust, binding upon man, preceding all institutions of human society and government.”  (Apr. 30, 1839)

Alexander Hamilton stated:  “The law…dictated by God Himself is, of course, superior in obligation to any other.  It is binding over all the globe, in all countries, and at all times.  No human laws are of any validity if contrary to this.”  (Feb. 23, 1775)

Justice James Wilson a signer of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, as a justice on the first U.S. Supreme Court wrote:  “…all laws, may be arranged in two different classes.  1. Divine.  2. Human. … But it should always be remembered that this law, natural or revealed, made for men or for nations, flows from the same Divine source: it is the law of God.  Human law must rest its authority, ultimately upon the authority of that law, which is Divine.”  (James Wilson, Lectures on Law 1791)  From the Pen of James Wilson

In short, we have been given a great legacy of freedom by those who came before us and paid the ultimate price. We can only repay that debt by our willingness to promote and restore freedom for those who will come after us.  As General Douglas MacArthur stated, “No man is entitled to the blessings of freedom unless he be vigilant in its preservation.” (May 3, 1948)

MEMORIAL DAY: America’s Godly Heritage

By: Carolyn Alder

Memorial Day

Today is a day for solemn reflection to honor the service and sacrifice of those who paid the ultimate price to preserve freedom.  Let us also reflect on America’s Godly Heritage in acquiring freedom.

The Founders of this nation knew it would not only require their blood to gain freedom, but also God’s favor.  The Declaration of Independence declared the principles of freedom and their grievances’.  The signers significantly affirmed their pledge to secure the Blessings of Liberty for themselves and their posterity with these words: “We therefore, the Representatives of the united states of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, … with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

Our Founders publicly recognized and acknowledged the “hand of God” in their affairs:

Benjamin Franklin in the Constitutional Convention:  In the beginning of the Contest with Great Britain …we held daily prayer in this room for the Divine protection. Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a superintending Providence in our favor. …And have we now forgotten that powerful Friend? Or do we imagine that we no longer need assistance?  (June 28, 1787)

Thomas Jefferson:  God who gave us life gave us Liberty at the same time. (1774)  Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the People that these liberties are of the Gift of God?  That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever. (1781)

James Madison:  It is impossible for the man of pious reflection not to perceive in it (the Constitution) a finger of that Almighty hand which has been so frequently and signally extended to our relief in the critical stages of the revolution.”  (Federalist 37 Jan. 11, 1788)

Our first Commander in Chief and President, George Washington:  I am sure there never was a people, who had more reason to acknowledge a divine interposition in their affairs, than those of the United States, and I should be pained to believe, that they have forgotten that agency, which was so often manifested during our revolution, or that they failed to consider the omnipotence of that God, who is alone able to protect them.  (March 11, 1792)

Let us appreciate America’s Godly Heritage. We have been given a great legacy of freedom by those who came before us and paid the ultimate price. We can only repay that debt by our willingness to promote and restore freedom for those who will come after us. As General Douglas MacArthur stated, “No man is entitled to the blessings of freedom unless he be vigilant in its preservation.” (May 3, 1948)

Trump

Why #NeverTrump must stand strong! It’s all about the leverage Mr. Trump

PoliticsTwo urgent tasks loom for patriots. Stop communist Hillary Clinton (or the more likely and equally dangerous Joe Biden/Elizabeth Warren ticket) and save the US Constitution. How can #NeverTrump help achieve those goals.

First we must stand strong and support each other in our support for the Constitution, and our opposition to Donald Trump’s candidacy.

If we cave now, we give up the one thing we still have left – LEVERAGE.

Donald Trump needs to know that at least 20% of the GOP base is militantly opposed to his candidacy. He needs to know that a big chunk of his potential vote is going to write-in Ted Cruz, vote Libertarian, stay home or work on saving the GOP Senate majority which many of us fear Mr. Trump will destroy. He needs to fear in his bones that if we stand firm it will likely cost him the Presidency.

Our Watcher’s Council Nominations – Post-Constitutional Edition

The Watcher’s Council

Donald Trump

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday morning.

Council News:

This week we were sad indeed to say goodbye to long-time Council member Brent Parrish at The Right Planet.

Brent is taking a hiatus from blogging to concentrate on family and business concerns, and all of us wish him the best. And of course, as a plugged in member of the WoW community, we’ll look forward to hearing from him in the future in our Forum, our inter-Council threads and perhaps, even an article as a non-council submission if he gets the bug to write again, which we certainly hope he will.

This means we currently have a vacancy on the Watcher’s Council, the oldest and most established blogging group in the ‘sphere. Any talented, interested parties should contact me directly by leaving a comment on any story on JoshuaPundit, including your name, site name and e-mail info as well as anything else you wish to include. Needless to say, it won’t be published, but I will respond promptly to your inquiry and tell you what’s involved.

So, let’s see what we have for you this week…
