Well, this is surprising…

Published

Early on Friday Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) took to Twitter to declare his support for the 10th Amendment… When it comes to marijuana.

The Tweet coming today probably isn’t much of a surprise. April 20th is known as “National Weed Day” in popular culture. This seems to be Chuck Schumer’s way of “looking hip” to younger constituents.

But, regardless of opinions on marijuana, for conservatives who believe in the constitution this Tweet may look surprising reasonable. But I wonder if Schumer would have the same opinion when it comes to gun rights, or abortion, or school choice? Definitely not.

This may be the only time that Schumer has used the Tenth Amendment as an argument for an issue. But the fact of the matter is, he doesn’t have an actual record of supporting state’s rights. If you were to attempt to reason with him about expanding gun rights or restricting abortion at the state level, it is a virtual guarantee that he would not agree with a Tenth Amendment argument.

And using states rights wasn’t even his main argument, as seen in a video he posted.

But maybe i’m wrong, and maybe Schumer has taken a strong embrace of the Tenth Amendment. If so, please get out of our way when it comes to passing pro-life, pro-gun, and pro-school choice legislation…

Former Defense Secretary ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis Endorses Rioting Leftist Mobs, Blames Trump for Division

Trump said he was a Democrat, and he wasn’t kidding.

Published

on

Former Secretary of Defense James Mattis has endorsed the rioters who are laying waste to America while blaming his former boss President Donald Trump for being responsible for all the division in the country.

“I have watched this week’s unfolding events, angry and appalled,” Mattis wrote. “The words ‘Equal Justice Under Law’ are carved in the pediment of the United States Supreme Court. This is precisely what protesters are rightly demanding. It is a wholesome and unifying demand—one that all of us should be able to get behind.”

He made excuses for the widespread rioting and violence, essentially pissing on the faces of everyone who has been victimized by the mob.

“We must not be distracted by a small number of lawbreakers. The protests are defined by tens of thousands of people of conscience who are insisting that we live up to our values—our values as people and our values as a nation,” Mattis wrote.

“We must reject and hold accountable those in office who would make a mockery of our Constitution,” he added.

Mattis put the blame on the violence being perpetrated by the savages in the streets solely on the shoulders of his former boss.

“Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead, he tries to divide us,” Mattis wrote. “We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership. We can unite without him, drawing on the strengths inherent in our civil society. This will not be easy, as the past few days have shown, but we owe it to our fellow citizens; to past generations that bled to defend our promise; and to our children.”

He then compared Trump’s style of governance to that of Hitler in Nazy Germany, showing his ideology is no different than the ANTIFA terrorists who have led the violent displays throughout the country.

‘The Nazi slogan for destroying us … was “Divide and Conquer.” Our American answer is “In Union there is Strength.”’ We must summon that unity to surmount this crisis—confident that we are better than our politics,” Mattis said.

He said that cities should be allowed to burn, and the military should do nothing to help people who are losing everything to the mob. Mattis only believes that the military should be used to play world place, never to protect the homeland.

“We must reject any thinking of our cities as a ‘battlespace’ that our uniformed military is called upon to ‘dominate.’ At home, we should use our military only when requested to do so, on very rare occasions, by state governors. Militarizing our response, as we witnessed in Washington, D.C., sets up a conflict—a false conflict—between the military and civilian society,” Mattis wrote.

“It erodes the moral ground that ensures a trusted bond between men and women in uniform and the society they are sworn to protect, and of which they themselves are a part. Keeping public order rests with civilian state and local leaders who best understand their communities and are answerable to them,” he added.

Big League Politics has reported on how Mattis’ carefully crafted public image is a fraud. He pushed for taxpayer money to be used for elective surgery for mentally-ill transgender military personnel:

President Donald Trump has resurrected an idea pitched early in his presidency. He is planning to remove individuals from the military who do not want to be recognized by their birth gender, a move that was previously obstructed by former Defense Secretary James Mattis, within the next 30 days…

Politico explains how Mattis abused his authority to stand in the way of the Commander-in-Chief’s order:

“When Trump tweeted his order that the military ban transgender personnel, Mattis tried to walk it back but ultimately failed. After the White House followed up the tweet with formal guidance, Mattis ordered a six-month policy review headed by his top deputy and generals from each of the military branches.

While the reviews were underway, the existing Obama-era policies that allowed troops to be open about their transgender status — and in some cases receive government-funded sex-reassignment surgeries — remained in place.

But the review ended with Mattis largely acquiescing to Trump, recommending in a memo to the president that “persons with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria” be “disqualified from military service except under limited circumstances.”

Trump followed through in March by formally ordering a ban based on Mattis’ recommendation — although that policy is now being contested in several court cases.”

It seems Trump was right when he said that Mattis was a Democrat all along.
