Donald Trump, fake news and the US Constitution

In my commentary yesterday covering Donald Trump’s first press conference since last summer, I briefly mentioned his headline-grabbing bullying of a CNN reporter. You may recall that Trump accused CNN of being a “fake news” organization after lumping together a…

Stephen Bannon, Trump Pravda, and the death of a free press

Allow me to take you back to June, 2013. It was a time of great frustration in our nation’s capitol as the Washington Elite, led by Sen. Lindsey Graham and Sen. Chuck Schumer, grappled with an issue that Graham called…

Trump disregards First Amendment just as he does the Second

Yesterday, I wrote about how liberals are leveraging the Orlando tragedy in an effort to void the Second Amendment rights of Americans. One of those liberals was Donald Trump, who joined the unconstitutional cause of Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton and…

Article alert

Earlier this morning, I wrote this article with the intent of proving Donald Trump is a First Amendment-hating tyrant who hasn’t hesitated in intimidating reporters into not writing unflattering articles about him. It’s unforgivable when a politician attempts to chill free speech and limit the rights citizens have to gather information about their government. This […]

Left-wing radicalism and the collapse of discussion

By: Alex Buchmann Our President’s tweet on SCOTUS’s recent soiling of state’s rights represents the Left’s ultimate feeling towards those who oppose their agenda. I’ll post the tweet for those of you who wisely avoid social media due to remarks like this: Today is a big step in our march toward equality. Gay and lesbian couples now have the right to marry, just like anyone else. #LoveWins — President Obama (@POTUS) June 26, 2015 This tweet sent from the elected executive of a constitutional republic symbolizes yet another example of the radical collapse of discussion within our culture. Let me expound on the President’s micro-aggression a little further. For love to win, hate must lose. In the nation of oversimplification, this tweet trumps all. If you’re not for love, then naturally you must be for hate, or so the liberal narrative goes. In the ‘gay rights’ movement, which already over-politicize every issue through bullying and intimidation, there will be no arguments after this. Those opposing the court’s ruling must inevitably be part of the bigotry and hate crowd (Exclusive Tee-Shirts of which are available upon request. I’ve made some great designs!). The Left doesn’t want a second side to any […]

Supreme Court same-sex marriage ruling will end First Amendment

One of the goals of the Strident Conservative is to be a light exposing the darkness of the lying liars on the left as they spread their radical “transformation of America” agenda. Over the past year, many of the lies have been in the area of same-sex marriage and the intolerance of those who oppose the idea. Now, in light of the Supreme Court decision that “legalized” same-sex marriage in all 50 states, some of the concerns held by folks who support traditional marriage—a union between one man and one woman—are already being realized. While spreading the truth about the consequences of legalizing same-sex marriage, I also challenged those who read my articles or hear me on the radio to take a stand for what’s right and make their voices heard. Thankfully, many of them have said yes! Unfortunately, there are also those who say that these new laws don’t affect them, so they don’t see the need to make a fuss. To those people, I offer this quote from the great Dr. Martin Luther King: According to several outspoken leaders who have been legally engaged with the issue, the redefinition of marriage by the Supreme Court has set up […]

Standing up to tyranny

Andrew Napolitano’s op-ed for Fox News is a great history lesson of the Nixon administration’s and the Obama administration’s attempts to suppress political speech. It’s today’s must reading. Here’s Judge Napolitano’s illustration of how the Nixon administration suppressed speech: Classic examples of “chilling” occurred in the 1970s, when FBI agents and U.S. Army soldiers, in […]

Eric Holder finally defends religious freedom . . . almost

During his confirmation hearing in 2009, Eric Holder made this commitment to the Senate Judiciary Committee and the American people: “The attempt to politicize the department will not be tolerated should I become attorney general of the United States.” “I will work to restore the credibility of a department badly shaken by allegations of improper political interference….” Yet, beginning with one of his first actions as the new Attorney General, when he dropped charges against members of the New Black Panther Party for violating the rights of white voters in a Philadelphia precinct during the 2008 elections, Mr. Holder has established a track record as being more than willing to put politics ahead of the rights of Americans. Just a few examples where Holder has been more than willing to use “improper political interference” has been in the areas of: right to bear arms, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press. He recently instructed Attorneys General across the country to ignore the law—in violation of the Constitution—if they represent a state where homosexual marriage isn’t legal. But perhaps one of the most troubling has been in the area of religious freedom. Some of the more notable instances where this has been the case are: In the case of Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v.  The […]

The FCC is sounding a lot like Joseph Goebbels to me

Last spring, in the aftermath of revelations that the Obama administration was actively intimidating members of the Associated Press and FOX News, Senators Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) worked together on legislation that was meant to “protect” members of the media from government interference and harassment when doing their jobs. Unfortunately, as is usually the case in Washington, this legislation created an indirect and highly undesirable side effect. As we documented in our piece, Joseph Goebbels would love Lindsey Graham, Senator Graham was having a great deal of trouble figuring out exactly who should receive this protection:  “Who is a journalist is a question we need to ask ourselves,” he said. “Is any blogger out there saying anything—do they deserve First Amendment protection? These are the issues of our times.” So, while the need for providing special protection for the media may or may not be necessary—I’m pretty sure the Bill of Rights already addresses this issue—Graham felt it was necessary for the government to decide who is, or isn’t, a member of the media. Or, to put it another way, only government-sanctioned members of the media deserve protection. And if you’re a blogger exercising your rights to Freedom of Speech? Well . . . to paraphrase the Soup Nazi on […]

Watching the fall of traditional media

Once upon a time, the United States had a strong, and vibrant press.
