SALLY MORRIS:  IT’S TOO EARLY TO “DISBAND” #NEVERTRUMP

So I would say, now it matters.  It’s no longer conjecture.  You won.  Let’s see your tax returns, and let’s get those assets (if, indeed, they really exist) into an ACTUAL blind trust.  (If these assets DIDN’T exist before,I’ll bet it won’t be long before they do.)

SALLY MORRIS: CAN FREE SPEECH SURVIVE A CON-CON?

Aside from this matter, I would say this:  that if the people who want to push this hard for a constitutional convention to “amend” or basically open the door to actually re-writing our Constitution, are willing to shut down free speech opposing their agenda, in effect, effectively prevent opposing opinions to be printed or heard, who are willing to go so far as to boycott someone for allowing a view differing from their own to be published, or even to go so far as to attempt to hack the website where such an article would appear, our liberty is not safe with them.

DENNIS PATRICK: THE BRILLIANCE CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC V. DEMOCRACY

Our Founding Fathers were smart, educated and wise. They took to heart the sentiments of the Roman philosopher, statesman and lawyer Marcus Tullius Cicero when he said, “Nothing is more unreliable than the populace, nothing is more obscure than human intentions, nothing is more deceptive than the whole electoral system.”

Checks and balances were intended not only between branches of government. They extended to the selection of elected officials as well. The Founding Fathers feared the tyranny of the 51% (mob rule) as much as they feared centralized government (a king). For this reason they instituted checks on the popular will. That, in good measure, is why we elect the President and Vice President through the Electoral College rather than by popular vote.

Beware the hue and cry to abolish the Electoral College. Liberals and progressives would love to stack the deck by manipulating the popular vote, reinforcing it with illegal aliens, allowing anyone and everyone to vote unchallenged and keeping school students ignorant of American Constitutional history.

SALLY MORRIS: THE STING OF AN ARTICLE V COS

The ichneumodinae are a kind of wasp.  Like many of their kind, they are predators.  The female injects her eggs into a host insect’s body.   She doesn't kill it, however.  She merely stuns it and injects her eggs into the insect's body.  The insect goes on as though living for itself, but as the host grows, the eggs hatch and eat it alive.    This might be an allegory to consider with regard to conservatives who are calling for a constitutional convention. . .

DR. JOSEPH HORTON: THE INSIDE STORY; WHAT REALLY HAPPENED TO ROE V. WADE

Is Roe v. Wade a story about how activists (maybe even including some Supreme Court justices) successfully supplanted the democratic process? And, has jurisdiction over abortion laws been taken from democratically elected representatives? Just this past summer a Texas law requiring abortion-providing facilities to meet the same health and safety standards as outpatient surgical clinics was declared an “undue burden.” In this article, Dr. Joseph Horton details “Abuse of Discretion: The Inside Story of Roe V. Wade” a book written by Constitutional scholar Clarke Forsythe. Horton argues that there may only be one way to return jurisdiction to the people.

SELWYN DUKE: KOWTOWING TO KAEPERNICK MAY HAVE PERMANENTLY DAMAGED THE NFL

There’s a price to be paid for everything — even for being politically correct in a “politically correct time.” A new poll shows that the main cause of the National Football League’s much discussed ratings drop is, in fact, the National Anthem Protests sparked by the very ignorant and callow Colin Kaepernick.

But here’s the really bad news for the NFL: some of the boycotting fans may never come back.

DENNIS PATRICK: VOTE NOT A DIFFICULT CHOICE

Trump is neither a Democrat nor a standard Republican; he is neither a liberal nor a conservative. He has been identified by some as a pragmatist – a goal-oriented person who is focused on solving problems. He sees a problem and understands it must be fixed.

The choice is not difficult. One candidate is a scandal-ridden, ambitious elitist under FBI investigation and engaged in the politics of personal enrichment through her use of public office. The other is an outsider, not a professional politician and who would not be beholden to special interests, outspoken, not politically correct, a very successful problem-solving businessman who connects with people and who truly has a heart for America.

And -- he is neither driven by nor intimidated by the mainstream media.

DR: EARL TILFORD: THE WHITE HOUSE AT WHAT cOST?

On October 14, referring to a supposedly forthcoming U.S. cyber-attack on Russia as retaliation for hacking into the Democratic Party’s computers, Vice President Joe Biden stated, “We’re sending a message … It will be at the time of our choosing and under circumstances that will have the greatest impact.” In this article, military expert Dr. Earl Tilford looks at Biden’s statement and argues that this isn’t just a case of “ole Joe just being Joe” because it places America’s national security in harm’s way.

DENNIS PATRICK: WOMEN IN COMBAT - A BRIDGE TOO FAR

The November 8 election will have serious consequences for national defense. General Newbold’s conclusion opposing women in combat units is direct and brutal. “If I am wrong, the cost may be denied opportunity to strong and impressive young women. If you’re wrong, our national security is shaken and there is a butcher’s bill to pay. Make your choice.”

SELWYN DUKE: TRUMP IS RIGHT - NO CONCEDING A RIGGED ELECTION

When our elections are being undermined there already is a threat to our republic and a constitutional crisis — and a grave one.

Shining the light of truth on this is not the disease, but the cure. Oh, it can be painful in the way nauseating cancer treatments or excising a malignant tumor can be so. But far worse is sitting by, head in the sand, as metastasis proceeds and death grows nigh.

To ignore corruption is to perpetuate it and become complicit in its spread and institutionalization; it is to descend into Third Worldism. And to sit idly by as someone steals your vote and your civilization isn’t the behavior of a gentleman, but of a coward.

DR. L. JOHN VAN TIL: LYING, SERIAL LYING AND THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL RACE

With less than three weeks until election day, the candidates continue to ramp up the rhetoric. But how much of what they are saying is true? One of the candidates will win the election on November 8, but will the American people win? In this article, Dr. L. John Van Til examines the possibility of applying a morality test to this election process. He writes, “This election is surely best described as a disaster for American presidential politics. No matter which candidate wins, American citizens lose. There is, however, a lesson to be learned here.”

SELWYN DUKE:  TRUMP SHOULD NOT ACCEPT THE RESULTS OF A STOLEN ELECTION

What the coward-cons miss, in their infinite lack of wisdom, is that unanswered corruption means our national fabric is already being rent.  And their prescription is to allow corruption to fester, to grow, to become status quo? It’s as with cancer: attacking it early involves some pain, perhaps enduring nauseating treatments or an operation to excise a malignant tumor. But ignoring it, refusing to face reality, means a metastasis that will consume the whole body and lead, ultimately, to death. Tolerate a bit of visible rending now — or risk having nothing left to rend later.

The coward-cons are the people who get elected to office…and then get nothing done; they’re the weak sisters who never saw a culture-war battle they couldn’t lose. If you suspect your vote has been negated by electoral fraud, would you want those charged with ensuring the system’s integrity to look the other way? Or would you want the matter sifted to the very bottom?

If the coward-cons would choose the former, then they’ve earned their place in the history of American ignominy.

DENNIS PATRICK: DISTRUSTING THE ELITIST MEDIA

Mainstream media, left wing media, corporate media or big media – these are different names for the same elitist press that regards itself equivalent to the fourth branch of government. This pertains to CBS, NBC, ABC, CNBC, NPR, PBS, New York Times, LA Times, Chicago Times and a slew of others.

For decades America has been lied to, manipulated and set up by the big media. The big media has become the defender and protector of liberal and leftist administrations – and when necessary, moderate Republican officials and administrations.

Aside from complaining, what can be done? First, ignore the corporate media. Consumption isn’t worth the time, effort or frustration. Second, do not accept the reporting without question. Do not accept their premise and do not form an opinion based on their spin. Third, (this requires a little proactive effort) find alternative news sources outside the mainstream media. A brief and far from exhaustive list includes: websites (Breitbart, Heritage Foundation, Gateway Pundit, Infowars); magazines (Weekly Standard, National Review, Claremont Review of Books, First Things, Commentary); and Radio/TV (Fox News, Fox Business).

Whatever course of action is adopted, remember that the mainstream media betrayed the public trust long ago.

DENNIS PATRICK: THE BOGUS PHONY FRAUD HOAX – CLIMATE CHANGE

Picking the right word for manmade climate change (the new term for global warming) is not tough. Fraud. Sham. Bogus. Phony. Hoax will do. Believing that infinitesimally insignificant man can significantly change global weather is the height of conceit.

Every drop of rain that falls, every gust of wind that blows is the fault of mankind, or so the narrative implies. There is no longer a “normal” state of weather in the politicized world of climate change. Mother Nature has become a victim of humanity!

And the drumbeat of silliness goes on.

SELWYN DUKE: ANTHEM HYPOCRISY - KNEELING, YES; CONFEDERATE FLAG, NO

In today’s politically correct schools, all types of divisive expression are equal, but some are more equal than others. A case in point is Wiregrass Ranch High School in Wesley Chapel, FL, where showing disrespect for the National Anthem is supposedly a “First Amendment right.” Wearing a Confederate Flag cape, however, is a violation.

Don’t hide behind the “First Amendment,” you hypocrites. For it’s easy to uphold and justify unjust standards when you posture, engage in moral preening and lie to yourself about what you’re doing. Just acknowledge that, to you, showing disrespect for our nation is palatable, but politically incorrect expression (i.e., wearing a Confederate Flag) is not. Don’t kid yourselves.

SALLY MORRIS:  THE RIGHT MAN, THE RIGHT TIME, THE RIGHT PARTY

I recall trying to talk to committeemen in two states in an effort to get them to see this man for what he is.  I got uniform treatment from all of them.  I even got a phone call from one of them who was beyond rude.  None of them wanted to hear that Trump wasn’t the best idea since the Revolution.  I suppose they still think so.  I won’t be calling them again.  I think, on the contrary, that the Republican Party, of which I considered myself a member for 50 years, has exactly the right candidate to represent what they have become.
