Why is it that our politicians, media elites, and cultural institutions have lost their minds and hearts? They have lost any modicum of common sense and have ignored the forgotten man in favor of special interests. They have been enabled by an incessant media cycle that focuses people’s attention on the wrong issues and information.
In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we re-establish the purpose of this show and tie it into the news cycle. Except… the news we discuss will probably not be the news you hear. There are so many stories on the military, the courts, national security, health care, and immigration that are missed by both the liberal and conservative media. It’s this obfuscation that has numbed the minds of many Americans and prevents them from thinking clearly.
In today’s show, we give a preview for all the upcoming end-of-year legislative battles, from taxes and spending to immigration and health care.
We begin by discussing the perverse priorities of Congress on sexual harassment. Rather than censuring the perpetrators and passing legislation to end the private taxpayer-funded slush funds for settlements, they are hiding behind phony PC “anti-discrimination/anti-harassment training.”
Next, we tackle the misplaced priorities of Congress on immigration. There’s a crisis going on with criminal alien gangs, yet rather than addressing enforcement, they want amnesty, which is the cause of this very violence we are facing.
Finally, we address the tax bill. Although the bill has gotten much better, watch out for this being a trap to get conservatives to support amnesty and an insurance bailout.
We are busy fixing (or not fixing) every failed state on the planet, yet we refuse to use every tool of statecraft to deal with the failed state on our own border: Mexico. This week we saw another tragedy as a result of the instability on our southern border, as a border agent was brutally murdered by illegal aliens operating on our shores.
To dissect the real problems at our border on both sides of the Rio Grande, we are joined by Brandon Darby, editor of Breitbart Texas, and one of the leading experts on drug cartels and the border problems. Brandon walks us through the complicated diplomatic, security, and cultural problems on both sides of the border that, unless properly addressed, will make much of the remaining debate over the border moot. The political class, which just wants votes and cheap labor, are not only selling out Americans, they are perpetuating the misery for the average Mexican. Under the current dynamic, everyone loses.
Steve Deace likes to call us the prophets of lamentation. Well, if you are in the mood of hearing the ultimate book of lamentations, this show is the one for you.
There is something big happening in our country and culture that is beyond any conventional fix. We must think broader and outside the box. We discuss the lack of justice, immoral behavior, the insane social engineering in the military, and the tax bill – all tying together to demonstrate that we will never fix the system with the existing political parties and the same political paradigm.
“The GOP is to conservatives what the Israeli air force was to Egypt in 1967. They preemptively carpet bomb our messaging before we can get off the ground.”
In this special episode of the Conservative Conscience, we give the long view of what happened in Alabama and where things are headed. The important thing now is to just get the truth and put all politics aside.
At the same time, there are so many lessons we can take out from what is going on in our culture and body politic – that until and unless there is a successful reform movement to change the way our political system is working, we are headed for a death spiral between two entrenched sides and false dichotomies. Everyone is fighting over what to do about a potentially lost Senate seat, but the reality is the entire institution of the Senate is lost. What is our answer moving forward? Irrespective of the outcome in Alabama, there is something so much bigger happening in our culture.

When will conservatives stop dying on the sword of a party that sullies our brand by laying claim to it but ultimately does the exact opposite?
In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we digest the true long-term meaning of the GOP defeat in Virginia. This is a long-term problem whereby conservatives are going to incur all of the liabilities of both the GOP and Trump’s persona but none of the benefits of Trump’s intuition. We go through a number of quiet examples of how this administration is lurching far to the left and so many Trump appointees are antithetical to his stated agenda. Until we start a new problem, this dynamic will never end.
Are you a tax policy nerd? You’ll love this episode. Even if you’re not into tax policy, we break down the clutter and show what others are missing about the GOP tax plan.
In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we bring out the broad outcome and the individual details of the GOP plan to demonstrate why the GOP is called the “stupid party.”
The GOP is incurring all the worst political liabilities of a tax cut plan and getting none of the policy benefits. Worse, most middle-income taxpayers will wind up paying more in taxes in the long run. Meanwhile, these same families are getting hosed with $2,100 premiums, yet the GOP won’t repeal Obamacare.
We delve into how the GOP dealt with deductions in the worst possible way while failing to bring down rates enough to shield people from paying more. There are also stealth tax increases built into this plan. In total, it is not worth the paper it’s printed on.
The Fourth Circuit has literally taken over control of the state of North Carolina. This is happening around the country and nobody is paying attention. Lower federal courts are denuding state legislature of basic powers over their own internal affairs. The biggest danger is now coming from the courts mandating that legislative maps be drawn in a way that is most advantageous to Democrats. The only thing worse than a legislative gerrymander is a judicial gerrymander.
In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we are joined by North Carolina’s LT. Governor, Dan Forest. He discusses his lonely battle against judicial tyranny and how North Carolina is the canary in the coal mine for what the left will do to other states.
Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled jihadists yearning to slit our throats.
This is essentially our motto as a self-immolating nation. In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, we discuss how the front line in this war is not in Raqqa, Tikrit, Kabul, or Mogadishu; it’s in communities such as Patterson, Brooklyn, NY, & Minneapolis. We have let in immigrants from places we should have never accepted and are doing so in record numbers. We discuss what a sane country would do to rectify the situation and how things will get worse if we don’t wake up.
