#16.5 - Best Pro Gun Argument Ever (2019) Part 5: 14th Amendment - Due Process

11/17/2019
In this episode, I answer the question: Does the state or federal government have the right to decide who can and who cannot own a gun? Many don't know that the 2nd Amendment isn't the only provision of the Constitution that protects gun rights. The 14th Amendment is also an important bulwark against gun control. To be legitimate, any gun control measure must pass muster with the 14th Amendment's due process clause. Music from Jukedeck - create your own at http://jukedeck.com Photo by...

#16.4 - Best Pro Gun Argument Ever (2019) Part 4: 2nd Amendment - for Muskets or Much More?

10/27/2019
In this episode, I answer the question: Does the 2nd Amendment apply to all bearable arms or just muskets? Many folks today believe the founders could never have imagined an AR-15 and would never support civilian ownership of one. I explore what it would be like if all Constitutional rights were treated this way. I talk about the success of insugencies against superior fighting power. Most importantly, I explore the many 18th century "assault weapons" that existed when the 2nd Amendment...

The survivors of the STEM school shooting walked out of a vigil in protest accusing the organizers of politicizing their tragedy. They refused to be used as an excuse for gun control.

Gut Reaction #3: No! Criticism is Not Incitement

4/29/2019
In response to an out-of-line Tweet by the President, the left is calling criticism of Ilhan Omar an incitement to violence. This is not only incorrect, it's downright malicious. Nothing will hasten the doom of our republic like conflating criticism (even unfair criticism) with incitement to violence, especially criticism of our political leaders.

#15 - National Emergency at the Border

On February 15th, President Trump declared a national emergency to fund the border wall. This is a very charged issue and hypocrites on both sides are shouting at each other. In this episode we'll explore what's right and wrong about both parties on this issue. Obviously there are Constitutional concerns.

Gut Reaction #2: Obamacare IS unconstitutional and always has been

12/19/2018
Last week US District Judge Reed O’Connor ruled that Obamacare is unconstitutional. Obamacare is probably the worst piece of legislation in American history, and I explain why, but this judges decision was based on a weak legal argument, and will almost certainly be overturned.

WARNING: DISTURBING TOPIC 2 weeks ago US District Judge Bernard Friedman ruled that a 1996 federal law banning female genital mutilation (FGM) is unconstitutional dismissing the key charges against 8 people accused of subjecting at least 9 minor girls to genital mutilation in America’s first FGM case, ever.

#14 - Birthright Citizenship

11/27/2018
Ever since President Trump announced that he could end birthright citizenship with an executive order, Twitter 14th Amendment experts have been clobbering each other. I began this research with no preconceived notions, and came to the only fair and honest conclusion. In this episode we'll look at the original debates on the 14th, what the Supreme Court has ruled, and what President Trump can actually do about it.

#13 - Treason

10/12/2018
Treason is the only constitutionally defined crime, and yet it's a word both sides like to throw around nonchalantly. We need to be careful using this word, or it will ultimately be used as a political tool to silence dissent, as it was in every kingdom in Europe when the Constitution was written. Since everyone has decided to throw this word around to describe anyone and everyone they disagree with, I think it's time we talk about what treason really means. Music from Jukedeck - create...

#11 - the General Welfare Clause

9/2/2018
If you've ever wondered how the federal government got so big and how they play a role in nearly every aspect of your public and private life, look no further than the general welfare clause. The prevailing view on both sides of the aisle is that Congress’s power to provide for the “general Welfare” is a power to spend for virtually anything that Congress itself views as helpful. This view is incorrect and dangerous. Let me explain why! Music from Jukedeck - create your own at...
