Rosentein may get subpoenaed if he continues to dodge Congress

Published

on

Representative Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) has threatened to subpoena Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosentein if he continues to avoid answer questions by the Congress.

Rosenstein has been accused of offering to wear a wire to expose the President to a possible invocation of the 25th Amendment in an attempt to remove him from office. He has claimed the words were sarcastic, but has thus far refused to go to Capitol Hill.

Chip Roy wants Congress to stop ‘coasting on autopilot, doing their swamp things’

Chip Roy wants Congress to stop coasting on autopilot doing their swamp things

Representative Chip Roy (R-TX) has been really getting on the nerves of Democrats on Capitol Hill. He’s asking them to do their jobs, which is apparently not what many of them want to do. He’s been taking some heat from the press, as if expecting members of Congress to be present for votes on important amendments is asking too much, but that’s not stopping him.

One thing is certain: Too much that happens in Congress is done on autopilot. Votes that are often important are held at times when nobody’s around an unanimous consent is possible. Roy was able to delay an expensive vote last month by calling for a tally. This does something bigger than just blocking unanimous consent. It puts members of Congress on record which prevents them from being able to skate around their involvement in the passing of unpopular bills or the blocking of popular ones.

As the border crisis gets worse and DC spending explodes, we need more people like Chip Roy in Congress. That’s one of the goals of the conservative movement. It’s necessary if we’re going to keep America great.

Stossel In Defense of Economic Liberty

Reason TV makes the case for Economic Liberty, showing its vast superiority over socialistic slavery.

In his latest video produced for Reason TV John Stossel interviews Yaron Brook from the Ayn Rand Institute making the case that Economic Liberty [Or the false Marxist pejorative Capitalism] has created more wealth and brought more people out of poverty than any other system.

Stossel: In Defense of Capitalism

People acting in their own self-interest created modern prosperity, says Ayn Rand Institute’s Yaron Brook.

Progressives claim capitalism is “immoral” because some people become rich while others stay poor. Yaron Brook, chairman of the Ayn Rand Institute, says the opposite is true.

“We have basically made about $2 a day for 100,000 years,” Brook told John Stossel. “In other wordswe could eat what we farmed and that was it.”

“And then something amazing happened.”

About 250 years ago, a few countries tried capitalism. For the first time, people were allowed to profit from private property.

“Two-hundred and fifty years ago we suddenly discovered the value of individual freedom,” says Brook. “We suddenly discovered the value of leaving individuals free to think, to innovate, to produce without asking for permission, without getting the state to sign off.”

As a result, humans “doubled our life expectancy,” says Brook. “We have dramatically increased the quality of our life and we are wealthier than anybody could have imagined.”

Brook, who’s an Objectivist, says that “doing for others is fine—but only if that’s what you want.”

“The key is that somebody else’s need is not a moral claim against your life,” he adds. “Your life is yours.”

[Our emphasis]

Please note that valuing Individual freedom is a vestige of philosophical individualism of Conservatives and True Liberals.

The unfair comparison: Collectivism in theory with Economic Liberty in practical reality.

In most cases, the Socialist-Left plays the game of comparing their theory of a perfect society based on their 2,400 year old ideas with the practical everyday problems of a functional but admittedly imperfect system. This is akin to polling that compares an unnamed – and thus ideal – candidate with a real candidate.

They do this so that they can speak of wonders an ‘Ideal state’ that works in sheer perfection and compare it to every problem and imperfection of everyday reality of Economic Liberty with every human society. Never mind comparing the record of accomplishment of Economic Liberty with the 400 years of failure that is the collectivist ideologies – they will repeat the tired old mantra that ‘Socialism has never really been tried’.

Very nice text animation of John 11-5

Under normal circumstances we wouldn’t feature a short video that didn’t have any commentary or expression of opinions about an aspect of religion in the world, but this video was exceptional.

Simple. Pure. To the point. One of the biggest parts of our goals for this site is to expose as many people as possible to the Word of God. Sometimes, we get so caught up in expression that we don’t allow the beauty of the Word to do the talking for us. In this case, we’re happy to let it do just that.
