If Conservatives Don’t Lead Trump to Heaven, the Swamp Will Lead Him to Hell Ep. 316

This week we are seeing conservatives get crushed on budget, immigration, crime, the courts, and the backward policy of taxing exports while subsidizing farms. Yet there is no effort to have a righteous fight on a single one of those issues. I begin with a discussion on the latest anchor baby problem at the border and what it means for our future. What happened to Trump’s promises?  Conservatives are asleep. Republicans have a major problem with staff on the Hill. Meanwhile, the courts have gone wild creating new rights for aliens while stripping Americans of basic gun rights, even in their homes. I update you on the latest with New Jersey’s retroactive ban on even owning basic magazines and an insane Third Circuit opinion. Finally, I discuss the problem with Trump’s tariffs in the context of the debt and the farm bill. The moral of the story? Trump has provided us with an opportunity, but if we sleep as a movement, the Swamp will take him over.      Show links Judges are now openly treating illegal immigration as a civil right The size of legislative branch compared to just one executive department Anchor-baby fence-jumping Our legal immigration and poverty The constitutional emergency in New Jersey with gun rights Copyright Blaze Media LLC Learn more about your ad choices.

The UN, Immigration, Courts, Sanctuaries, and Stolen Sovereignty Ep. 288

Everyone is abuzz with rumors about the next U.N. ambassador. I offer some ideas for who should be the conservative pick and what is important about this position. I also note how conservatives are not in a good position to block some of the bad names being mentioned. Next, I show how there is a torrent of court cases that will hurt us on sovereignty and immigraition. Courts just ruled sanctuary cities are entitled to federal funding. And no, a more conservative Supreme Court will not fully solve this problem. I conclude with a discussion on the sheer growth of legal and illegal immigration and how we are funding our demise with sanctuary cities and anchor babies. Finally, I preview the next battle over ethanol statism.  Show links We are funding anchor babies with Medicaid Sanctuary cities and the drug crisis UN pushing border invasion in our own liberal courts Another sanctuary judge Copyright CRTV.

Ep 441 | Conservatives Got Slaughtered this Term at the Supreme Court

Ep 372 | The Senate’s Most Pathetic Hour

The hypocrisy of today’s Senate vote to disapprove of Trump’s emergency power is perfidious. These same people who will not lift a finger or utter a word to fight back against judicial power grabs or Obama’s executive amnesty that caused this very border fight we are in today suddenly find religion on Article I of the Constitution. Why is not a single one of these so-called conservatives forcing a vote on sanctuary cities? The latest murder victim in California will never be known to these people because they only care about what the media tells them to.  Finally, I address the news that Trump has “flipped the Third Circuit” and why this alone will ultimately not make much of a difference in deterring the Left’s use of the courts to destroy America.       Show links Dems prepare to pack the courts when they are in charge An illegal alien allegedly brutally murders an American in a sanctuary Where’s the congressional outrage over judicial power grabs?  Copyright Blaze Media All Rights Reserved.

We Must Completely Reset the Baseline on Conservatism after the Election Ep. 296

Are we just going to be Election Day groundhog activists and go back into our bunker the day after the election, or will we finally forge ahead with an agenda?  In this episode, I discuss the need to reset the baseline of what it means to be a conservative, how it applies today, and what we seek to achieve. Otherwise, that baseline will forever drift to the left. I discuss Chip Roy’s plan to reset the baseline, the way we discuss issues, and the goals we hope to achieve on all the important issues.  I delve into the false dichotomy about labels like nationalism and how we define ourselves relative to the media rather than in our own affirmative and absolute terms.  Finally, I give an update on some immigration-related news and how the courts are a perfect example of the need to reset the baseline.  Show Links Our resource page on caravan news WSJ: Half of economic growth from government spending James Wallner’s excellent article on the need for a vision Georgia judge trying to steal the election The latest border numbers are astounding Before it was political, the media reported on non-Latin Americans coming across the border Chip Roy will be a game changer Copyright CRTV.

Ep 391 | Let’s not forget the media caused this border surge

While the courts are certainly responsible for the border invasion, along with the feebleness of this administration, let’s not forget the role the media played.  We take you back to last summer when the media virtue signaled beyond belief over the so-called separation of families.  This induced the judge to issue his decision and Congress followed suit.  But why is DHS’s media affairs department not working with conservative journalists to tell the other side of the story? Did you know this administration handed out over 700,000 work permits over two years to bogus asylum seekers?  Finally, we discuss crazy lower court judges and why they have no fear of Supreme Court precedent.    Show links It’s illegal immigration that’s hurting commerce, not the response to it A judge who ignores his own branches judicial norms calls Trump the KKK for criticizing judges Oregon judge basically ignores the landmark Janus ruling on forced union dues Copyright Blaze Media All Rights Reserved.

Ep 344 | Why the Mexican Cartels Are a More Serious Threat Than Anyone Wants to Recognize

What is it going to take for us to get serious about the threat from the Mexican cartels? Jaeson Jones, veteran Texas DPS intel and counterterrorism officer, joins us for his second briefing (here is the first episode) on the severity of the cartels' threat. They are no longer just drug cartels; they are essentially global terror groups that need to be designated as such, according to Jones. Their weapons, tactics, and infrastructure have taken a “quantum leap” over the past few years, and our government always seems to be a step behind.  Show links Even Congress’ research arm vouches for president’s authority Rock-throwing operations by the cartels are used as diversions Cartels with armored vehicles My blueprint for what Trump should do next Copyright Blaze Media LLC All Rights Reserved.

How politics, not data, is driving policy on painkillers — and hurting patients Ep. 219

Today, we are joined by Dr. Stefan Kertesz, a professor in the division of preventive medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine. Dr. Kertesz joins us to discuss his concerns about government's totally unscientific approach to cutting off pain medicine. In a wide-ranging conversation, we delve deep into the drug overdose crisis, what really causes it, the most recent trends, and how the lack of proper science and data is driving the government to make things worse. In fact, most of the problems with overdoses have nothing to do with pain patients and doctors who write legitimate prescriptions, yet most of the public policy solutions are targeting them while ignoring the bigger problem.     This issue is too important to misdiagnose and is an opportunity for people of all political persuasions to come together to seek the truth.  Show notes My latest on government misfiring on opioid crisis Dr. Kertesz’s articles: Pill limits are not a smart way to fight the opioid crisis Strict limits on opioid prescriptions risk inhumane treatment of pain patients The danger of overcorrecting on prescription opioids  Copyright CRTV.

Politicians Should Look in the Mirror to Discover Who Caused the Pre-Existing Condition Problem Ep. 291

Are you sick of Republicans and the conservative media focusing on these quasi-cultural flash points but then agreeing with Democrats on all the policy outcomes? Be sure to tune in today. In this blockbuster episode, I cram as much health care policy into one show as I possibly can. I discuss how Republicans have essentially agreed to Obamacare and socialized medicine even as they claim to fight it. Why are health care and medical insurance so messed up? Who caused the pre-existing condition problem? Who is at fault for all the mergers, acquisitions, and monopolies as well as the destruction of private practice? Bookmark this podcast, because this is the message that needs to be delivered on the campaign trail. I also touch on jailbreak and how Trump used to understand race, crime, and incarceration, but has gone back on his campaign message. I give you the most up-to-date FBI statistics. Finally, I explore some cultural fights that have jazzed up our base but have not resulted in policy outcomes. We should care more about how much of the Dem policies our own side is adopting than the soap opera on the Democrat side.  Show links The ultimate reform of Medicaid and pre-existing conditions Even worse than the cost of health care is what gov’t is doing to the quality and to doctors The old Trump was right about crime, incarceration, and race Copyright CRTV.

Ep 498 | Anti-Sanctuary Sheriff Recounts Horrific Murder in Broad Daylight at Maryland County Fair

The crime wave throughout the country is getting worse every day, particularly with juveniles who walk the streets in packs and senselessly beat innocent victims. Today, we are joined by Frederick County, Maryland, Sheriff Chuck Jenkins, one of the last men who still believe in law and order, to discuss the absolutely horrific knockout attack that occurred at his county fair in broad daylight that resulted in the death of an innocent man. He believes that we simply are not deterring criminals anymore because of our increasingly weak justice system. Jenkins is also a leader in the 287(g) immigration enforcement program, which ensures that illegal aliens arrested for crimes are turned over to ICE. He explains how he has successfully removed nearly 1,530 illegal alien criminals, many of them gang members, who are now out of the country and can no longer harm more people.

Ep 469 | Why Would We Bring In Immigrants to Live on Welfare?

Immigration should benefit America, not drain our public resources. That's why down through history, we did not let in immigrants who would become a "public charge" — dependent on welfare. I discuss the history, law, and context for today’s rule, announced by the Trump administration, to enforce our public charge laws. It’s common sense and quite modest compared to the actual law, yet the media is going insane over it. I explain what the rule will do and how a huge amount of public charge will still be left on the table. Then, of course, there is illegal immigration, which remains untouched by this proposal.Show links Surprise!

How to form a shadow government with citizens’ task forces Ep. 213

What is the solution for conservatives? How can we actually change the game when everything seems to blow up in our faces? In this episode, we inaugurate our new idea – the creation of citizens’ task forces that serve as ad hoc oversight committees of government but are formally recognized by the conservative elected officials. We explain how even the good members of Congress lack the time and resources to properly give voice to our concerns and ideas but would gladly do so if people from the outside would chip in. Shadow governments, field hearings, citizen reports, and grassroots media are some ways we can take back our republic, with the help of God. We also briefly touch on the stupidity of the internet sales tax as it heads to the Supreme Court for oral arguments this week. We also focus on the inanity of our strategy in the Middle East.  Show links A speaker’s run could galvanize this new movement How we can make citizens' task forces Trump has granted amnesty to 153,000 because the courts rule our country Full interview with Mark Levin Learn more about your ad choices.

The Debt Crisis We're Not Allowed to Talk About Ep. 254

We’ve all but forgotten that our debt crisis is now worse than it was under Obama. Republicans keep increasing spending every week, and nobody pays attention and nobody on the “Right” is pressuring Trump to dust off his veto pen. In this episode, I explain why the source of the debt is mainly from spending, not the tax cuts, and how it is hurting our economy and national security. I offer a legislative update on the spending bills, farm bill, and some ridiculous health care bills that will wind their way through Congress. GOP leaders continue to miss the point. Health care is the lynchpin to the debt crisis and getting rid of third-party interference is the lynchpin to solving health care. But they are headed in the opposite direction.    Show links Even with tax cuts, we will never grow the way we should because of debt Countering Russia the right way Copyright CRTV.

Want to change the GOP? Swap out primaries for state conventions Ep. 217

In this special episode, we make the full case for why we need to scrap direct primaries and opt for state conventions to choose nominees for major offices.  Drawing on the news that Mitt Romney lost at the Utah convention to an unknown challenger, we demonstrate how representative conventions are in line with what our Founders wanted, while direct primaries lead to tyranny of the elites. We explain the history of the primary process, why it’s nearly impossible for grassroots conservatives to win primaries, how state conventions would level the playing field, and how this would serve as a force multiplier for making our government more responsive to we the people. Otherwise, we are just wasting our time trying to fix a party that we just can’t change.  Key quote: “In democracy . . . there are commonly tumults and disorders. . . . Therefore a pure democracy is generally a very bad government.
