Agree or Disagree with those Republicans who wish to restrict War Powers back to the Congress?

Over the past year we’ve watched the American Left start destroying each other from within through increasingly more stringent “purity” tests. Such was also the case during the French Revolution.

In the past few days, some prominent Republicans like Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Matt Gaetz are adamant that the ability to go to war should return to being solely under the purview of the Congress, as is clearly stated in the Constitution.

On the surface, President Trump appears to be angry over this but some are suggesting that this may not be the case.

The Revenge of Democracy

So now we know. Now we know what happens when you declare war on democracy. Now we know the consequences of demeaning the largest democratic vote in a nation’s history. Now we know what becomes of a political class that sneers at voters, silences their democratic voice, and libels them as racist, xenophobic know-nothings who cannot be trusted with stewardship of the nation. You get punished. You get rebelled against. You get replaced. Last night, in those extraordinary election results, we witnessed the revenge of democracy.

This from a superb post-election editorial by Spiked’s Brendan O’Neill. Podcast here.

American elites, on the Left and the Right, should recognize this as a warning about their own arrogance. But they won’t.

The Stupid Party

Via email,

Just wanted you to know that I received my gas bill today (first sizeable bill this winter from Enbridge/formerly Union Gas), wherein I have been charged the 13% H.S.T. (Ontario) on the Federal Carbon Tax.
Call me crazy, as you like, but that appears to me to be a tax on tax. Hell, I thought Doug Ford was going to do away with this kind of thing, which, as it happens, needs to happen, now!
It’s nothing but a grab, and the quicker everybody in Ontario understands this insanity, the sooner we’ll have a new country!

The Unbearable Lightness Of Andrew

He who is without sin…

Imagine if Trudeau or Scheer had constantly made fun of Singh’s religion to hurt him politically—Demanding to know if he believed in reincarnation, if he REALLY thought God cares about haircuts etc. Would this be any different than hounding Scheer about what he thinks is “a sin?”

Every word of that is truth.

So why doesn’t he fight back?

Update: “Let’s go.”

Why is it so difficult for some Brits to respect Democracy?

The Brexit drama in Britain is fascinating. It has exposed many on the Left and the Elitist Right as having no interest in respecting the will of the people. Lest anyone forget, a legally binding referendum was held on June 23, 2016 and a majority of voters decided that Britain should leave the EU. There has been no hint that the voting was improper. It was always known that a simple majority of 50% + 1 was sufficient to trigger Brexit. So why is there any dispute now of Britain departing the EU?

As those of us on this side of the Atlantic have learned over our lifetimes, Leftists don’t often respect democracy. So many of them have the hearts of totalitarian thugs and believe that anyone who disagrees with their vision of utopia is misguided, mentally ill, or evil, so the votes of such people don’t really count.

The attitudes of the Elitist Right is something that this blogger had dismissed as not so common up until this point. How very wrong yours truly has been. It seems clear that such people really do believe that they are better, smarter, and wiser than you and me. This “democracy” thing is a nice illusion for the unwashed but we, the noble elites, know what is best for our country and shall impose our enlightened will on the nation.

Coulda Had Max

Because he understands how Twitter works;

People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier has doubled down after attempting to discredit an internationally recognized teenage climate change activist by calling her “mentally unstable.”
After facing scorn on Twitter for his remarks on Greta Thunberg on Sunday, Bernier did not back down in an eight-part tweetstorm the following day.

And that you must never, ever back down from the media and their mob. Now, if only the rest of Canadian conservative politiciandom had as much backbone.
