Why is it that we see the rise of a phony alt-right movement and the media obsession with it? Well, those conservatives who are so obsessed with criticizing it are responsible for its rise. The vacuum left by a truly constitutional movement that actually believes in fighting for what it espouses, rather than collecting website clicks and money, would have preempted the rise of such a movement.
In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we discuss how the conservative “smart set” ignoring Judge Roy Moore is emblematic of what is wrong with them and why the Republican voters turned away from their brand. It’s why some people are unfortunately attracted to some voices that might identify the problems accurately but are headed in the wrong direction. When confronted with a destructive cultural Marxist agenda, the phony conservative movement did nothing to counter it with Godly and constitutional principles. Thus, our side wants a revolution. Some of us want an American revolution, but sadly many will be attracted to a French Revolution because they are so desperate for leadership. Support for a man like Roy Moore offers a true opportunity to stand beyond this false dichotomy of the status quo or a French Revolution, yet these people who say they want something more than Trump refused to stand with him.
"We must be good again before we can be great. And we will never be good again without God." ~ Judge Roy Moore
Once again, we have another tragedy in this country that becomes a political football. Everything, from tragedies and mayhem to sports and weather must become political.
In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we discuss the solution to reconciliation in this country: localism. Because everything is dealt with on a federal level and because we have such a polarized country, everything has become a flashpoint, even issues or events that would otherwise stand above politics. By restructuring our system of government to federalism we will be able to self-sort and enjoy self-government to each group’s linking in their respective areas while preserving national unity on the issues that need to be dealt with at a federal level, such as combating North Korea.
“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected.
The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State. The operations of the federal government will be most extensive and important in times of war and danger; those of the State governments, in times of peace and security. As the former periods will probably bear a small proportion to the latter, the State governments will here enjoy another advantage over the federal government. The more adequate, indeed, the federal powers may be rendered to the national defense, the less frequent will be those scenes of danger which might favor their ascendancy over the governments of the particular States.” ~ James Madison, Federalist 45
No, Mr. President, the 60-vote threshold did not prevent you from supporting conservatives in Alabama, from firing McMaster, from ending the Iran deal, from getting rid of DACA, or from signing bad budgets and debt ceilings. Trump doesn’t need to get rid of the filibuster to stop taking in the refugees or to reject Australia’s refugee deal. The point is there is so much the president can do unilaterally to match his rhetoric and campaign promises with actions, but sometimes he is just his own worst enemy.
In this action-packed episode of the Conservative Conscience, we discuss everything from the Alabama Senate race and McMaster to Trump continuing Obama’s multiple amnesty programs. On issue after issue, Trump can accomplish so much if he just hired personnel that shared his campaign vision.
Finally, we discuss a vision for dealing with North Korea and how it fits into our broader foreign policy and military mistakes. We have wasted so much time, money, hardware, lives, deterrent, and political capital by getting involved in endless sinkholes refereeing Islamic civil wars in the Middle East. This has hurt our deterrent and resolve to use our military for when it is needed most – to combat or deter conventional threats from nation states like China, North Korea, and Iran when they directly threaten our interests. The Islamic Jihad issue (minus Iran) is mainly an immigration, intelligence, counter-terrorism, and values problem, not a military problem. The military needs to be re-oriented to deal with military threats. Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan do not qualify. Further involvement there just hurts our deterrent against China and North Korea, which we will have to confront sooner or later.

In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we first tackle the importance of firing H.R. McMaster and how Trump is his own worst enemy when it comes to personnel and order in the White House. We also delve into the opportunity we have for a new vision on immigration and health care but how it’s being squandered either by Trump’s distractions or by the rotten Republican leadership.
Finally, we discuss the race of the decade that is right on our doorstep – the Alabama Senate race. Will conservatives take yes for an answer? The stars appear to be aligning for Judge Roy Moore, but conservatives must prepare for a massive smear operation in the runoff. If we can pull this off, it will represent the closest thing to starting a new party. This is a man who is actually everything in practice what we tout in rhetoric.
Solutions, solutions, solutions! The fight for freedom in health care doesn’t have to end with failure to repeal Obamacare. We are joined by Rep. Jim Butler (R-OH), a one-man think tank on health care, who shares with us some of the reforms to health care (not just insurance) he is pushing for in Ohio – reforms that can be replicated on a federal level.
Why should insurance companies and hospitals, which are propped up by every tool of government, be allowed to price fix and not have to send their charges to individuals before a service is rendered? This reform alone would apply market forces to health care and solve much of the problem. The hospital cartel is fighting his law in court because they know it will end the scam of using taxpayer funds to price fix consumers out of the market. They want to continue the venture socialist racket of using the statutory, regulatory, subsidy benefits from the government in order to box out competition and consumer demand.
The media and the political cartel are lying to you about our true history, traditions, values, laws, and priorities on immigration.
In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we explore our true history of immigration based on my book, Stolen Sovereignty. The left has it exactly backwards. We have NEVER done what we are doing today on immigration. Quite the contrary, what Stephen Miller and Tom Cotton are proposing on immigration is exactly how both parties felt about the issue until recently. We recount the full history of our immigration system and establish a list of principles that can guide us today.
We also address the dustup between White House aide Stephen Miller and CNN’s Jim Acosta over the history and meaning of the Emma Lazarus’s poem on the Statue of Liberty. It’s purpose was the exact opposite of what the left uses it for and the laws and traditions in place at the time it was affixed to the Statue of Liberty are living proof.
