There are so many betrayals being perpetrated by our political class that actually have discernable policy outcomes and are much more important than the Comey news. Why is nobody talking about the GOP betrayal on the border wall, health care, religious liberty, moving embassy to Jerusalem, the Paris climate accord, and of course judicial tyranny? Yet, in many respects, the Comey news and the binary hypocrisy of the parties is important to focus on and learn from because it embodies what is wrong with both parties.
In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, Daniel explains why Comey should have been fired from a conservative perspective but also why both sides in this case have a glass jaw. If we actually had a consistent and principled conservative party it would be so much easier to punch through the news cycle. All too often, our side must defend and fight for things that aren’t even conservative, yet get blamed for them. In many respects, we are all like James Comey, turning everything into a tortured political pretzel rather than being consistent about the truth.
In the second half of the show, we discuss how the courts have reached a new level of judicial tyranny and are making the other two branches irrelevant. This is a lot more important than the Comey news, but nobody in the other two branches is even willing to broach the topic.
“Sure, the media is going to throw punches at any hypothetical conservative movement or party. But it would sure be a lot harder for them to do damage if we didn’t have the glass jaw of the tainted and progressive GOP.”
“I’m sick and tired of dying for the other SOB’s ideology. Can’t we have a party with which we will at least take media hits for our own beliefs?”
