Don’t listen to any of the punditry from johnny-come-lately, thumbsucking pseudo-conservative journalists on why Roy Moore won in Alabama.  Here at the Conservative Conscience, we’ve been following Roy Moore long before the special election even became a reality.  There’s something much deeper here and by understanding the true significance of the win, we can harness a great opportunity to revitalize a new conservative movement built upon timeless principles.

America has become “a dumping ground for the rest of the world.”  So said Donald Trump during the campaign.  He was right then, but now he is being slow to follow up on his promises to end this phenomenon.

In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we discuss the severity of our lax immigration policies.  Between endless refugees, asylees, and illegal aliens disappearing into our communities or being let go by sanctuary cities and sanctuary courts, America has become a dumping ground.  While we still have some meritorious immigrants, we have too many public charges or criminals that are allowed to remain in the country. 

We delve into the deal to take in Australia’s rejected refugees and how it betrays everything Trump campaigned on.  We also discuss the revised travel ban and how it is woefully inadequate.  

Finally, we frame the importance of the upcoming special election in Alabama.

Let it burn!

In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we untangle the latest GOP health care bill for those who are perplexed.  There is a way conservatives can secure a positive outcome from this bill, but for very different reasons than those intended by the GOP establishment.  Far from fixing the insurance market, this bill will continue the current trajectory and prices will continue to go up while competition will not be able to materialize.  But at this point, given that the individual mandate will be repealed and we can evacuate from this system, that might be a good thing!  The result might be better than fixing insurance; it might lead to a chain of events that solve the actual health care problem.  

In this show, we review the core drivers behind health care inflation and how repealing the individual mandate could open an avenue to use the negative energy from Obamacare against this third-payer system and revitalize direct primary care. This is the discussion the politicians refuse to have, but once we are evacuated from the mandate, the market forces can force this reality.

As we celebrate the 230th anniversary of the Constitution, we are confronted with the jarring reality that are representative republic has disappeared.  We live in a judicial autocracy.

In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we delve into the stolen sovereignty of the American voter at the hands of the unelected courts and how they have breached the constitutional firewall of separation of powers.  In a republic, the power must be derived from the people, but in the contemporary practice of our politics, all power resides in the courts or unelected bureaucracies.  Then the elected officials also disenfranchise us by lying to get elected and then doing the exact opposite when in office.  Trump was elected to reverse this trend but in many respects, he is the ultimate force for disenfranchisement.  He feeds us political morphine on twitter while sitting idly when his liberal administration nullifies his campaign promises.

We explore the latest news on immigration, the runaway courts, and how judicial amnesty is the greatest threat to consent-based citizenship.  Meanwhile, Trump is bailing out the establishment in Alabama from an impending defeat.  We count a number of other ways Trump is hurting, not helping, our effort to shake up Washington.      

Key Quotes

We may define a republic to be, or at least may bestow that name on, a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of the people, and is administered by persons holding their offices during pleasure, for a limited period, or during good behavior. It is ESSENTIAL to such a government that it be derived from the great body of the society, not from an inconsiderable proportion, or a favored class of it; otherwise a handful of tyrannical nobles, exercising their oppressions by a delegation of their powers, might aspire to the rank of republicans, and claim for their government the honorable title of republic. - James Madison, Federalist #39

Ryan and McConnell handed control of Congress to the Democrats a long time ago.  But that is no excuse for Trump to hand over the presidential veto pen and the executive personnel and policies to the Democrats as well.

In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we explore all the current issues – from the pursuit of amnesty and budget betrayals to our backwards foreign policy – to demonstrate how Republicans are operating solely within the confines of the Democrat premise on every single issue.  The Democrat wish is their command.  Now with Schumer and Pelosi playing footsies with Trump, conservatives are completely cut out.  We face a greater threat of losing the immigration issue than ever before thanks to Trump getting conservatives to support amnesty. 

This is why it is insane for the conservative media to give Trump a pass and not pressure him to change his ways.  Giving excuses and shielding him from blame will only further incentivize this behavior and ensure that conservatives are disenfranchised.

9/11 is certainly a time to reflect on the sacrifice of the victims of the greatest terror attack on our soil.  But it is also a time, particularly after 16 years of policy failures, to reflect on the root public policy narrative of 9/11: the fundamental job of the federal government and the failures to properly execute it. 

At its core, the job of the government is to protect the security and interests of the American people first – before any other interest, irrespective of where the truth of those policies takes us.  Sadly, the same political correctness that led to 9/11 is still in place, and even worse in some ways.  The best way to honor the legacy of Flight 93 and other heroes of 9/11, from a public policy standpoint, is to ensure that the government does everything it can not just to prevent another 9/11 from occurring but to always place the security of the American people above all else.  

In this special episode of the Conservative Conscience, we bring in Jordan Schachtel, CR’s national security correspondent, to survey the lay of the land 16 years later.  We go through our immigration system, domestic Islamic subversion and backwards foreign policy and military strategy that has left us more vulnerable now than before 9/11.  It is all rooted in the fact that our politicians no longer represent our interests.  They place political correctness and personal relationships above all else. 

It’s time to change course and we offer a list of dos and don’ts for immigration and foreign policy that will re-align our policies with the interests of the American people.

Let’s roll!

This has been the most brutal week of the year for conservatives.  Like the supposed hero turning on the people who elected him, Trump is grounding and pounding conservatives on one issue after another – from budgets, debt, and building the wall, to foreign policy, immigration, and Planned Parenthood.  Orwell could not have written a plot or narrative with a greater degree of perfidy at its core.

Between the relentless attack on our culture, sovereignty, security, and society from the courts and Trump now becoming a Democrat, conservatives have no voice in Washington or anywhere in power.  We go through the budget betrayal, the significance of the debt ceiling, and the depth of perfidy on perverted priorities regarding immigration.  Towards the end of the show, we give an update on the Alabama Senate race and a look at next week.  The only hope is to first recognize the truth and slay the false idols we’ve been supporting until now.

We have a bipolar presidency that has ensured Trump is the PINO- president in name only.  Three minutes after he says one thing in order to fulfil a campaign promise, he follows up by saying or doing the opposite.

In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we discuss the late breaking budget betrayal whereby Trump has given Pelosi everything Democrats wanted – and then some.  He has given them the debt ceiling, every budget priority, and most insidiously, is tying it to Harvey relief funding.  There is more acrimony than ever before in politics, yet the two parties agree on everything when it counts.  Trump was elected to change the culture of capitulation, yet he has doubled down on it.   We are now incurring the lowest common denominator of the liabilities from both Trump and the GOP congressional leaders.  This was evident as well with the immigration announcement and the multiple positions Trump took to undermine our messaging.   

While there is a lot of doom and gloom, we must first recognize the severity of the problem and slay the false idols before we rebuild, discover the truth, and return to God.

What you are seeing this week with the clamor by both parties to pander to illegal aliens is the most profound violation of the most foundational tenet of the social compact.  The job of government officials is to protect the American people from open borders and the ill effects of illegals, not to focus on illegals first and only. 

In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, you will hear the side of the debate over the so-called “dream” amnesty that you will never get from the political class.  What about the ill effects of illegal immigration on Americans and the urgency to address their needs before those of illegal aliens?  Not only is it the moral thing to do, it is the sacred responsibility of any elected official, deeply rooted in the social contract.

The political class seems to have forgotten the lessons from California and Arizona and the destruction wrought on this country by illegal aliens.  Not only is amnesty not the job of our government, it is the source of the incentives that continue to break our borders.  How is it moral to give amnesty before securing the border and cutting off the magnets?  

 

Every society from a great nation down to a club had the right of declaring the conditions on which new members should be admitted, there can be room for no complaint.—Gouvernour Morris, at the Constitutional Convention
