Great article in the Telegraph arguing against "circuit-break" lockdowns that are being proposed in the UK. @AllisterHeath points are equally pertinent for the U.S. The major difference is that Americans have more defenses against lockdowns.…
Britain has no written constitution. When Parliament acts, that is constitutional law. Our written constitutions afford us rights we can point to and enforce against our government. Brits are looking at this nightmare: threat of lockdown "at the first sign of any new epidemic."
With respect to lockdowns, our structure of government gives us the power to take back our lives. State legislatures could both end lockdowns, *and* retool the authority of the executives to protect us from future abuse.…
We better do that very quickly here in the United States, because as Mr. @AllisterHeath notes in his chilling conclusion, the future might otherwise be Asia's.

(The WSJ just reported that the IMF has predicted China "will be the only major economy to grow this year.")

As we move into autumn, talk is growing of returning lockdowns. Europe in particular seems to be rushing toward more punishing confinements for citizens and destruction to their economies. But, there was an interesting and (unintentionally) hopeful piece in the WSJ yesterday…
The article detailed the disputes among epidemiologists on whether further lockdowns will be needed. But the worry among leaders, WSJ reported, is the question, how much more will people put up with? They are worried about the national mood. I wrote about that concept in May...
The national mood is a "very real influence in politics, and many constitutional abuses have never been attempted over the years, not because they were unconstitutional, but because politicians and leaders understood the actions would not be tolerated."…

From the Suprme Court to voting, the Democrats right now are experiencing the brutal swing of the pendulum on policies and problems they themselves created. Democrats politicized the Court because, as has been noted in the #ACBHearings, the Dems were unable to convince the...
...people to adopt their radical policies, so they used the courts to advance their agendas instead. And they have deliberately attempted to create chaos in the 2020 voting process to open the door to challenge the election and possibly throw it to the Court. They also have...
...been in overdrive to terrify the American people with COVID so that they can use this crisis to expand power and erode the traditional independence of the American people. Now their voters are indeed terrified of going to the polls because of COVID and RBG died right before...

I think everything we have filed in the Flynn case has been good, but today's...

Please take time to read it! It is important, not just to @GenFlynn, but also for every American who believes in "justice for all" and in the longevity of our Republic.


During the hearing on September 29, Sidney revealed she asked the President not to pardon General Flynn. He deserves full exoneration and the American people deserve a functioning justice system. Her point here is critical to the case:
The brief highlights that the attorneys Sullivan tapped to continue the prosecution of Flynn have massive and striking conflicts. This includes the fact that Gleeson’s partner David O’Neil (on Gleeson's amicus brief!) represented Sally Yates!

Trump won the debate last night. Biden did better than expected, although the expectation was he wouldn’t be able to string his sentences together, so... Trump really was laser focused and aggressive, which was great. And he had great facts to hit Biden with.
I’d only tell Trump to dial it back to an 8.5 from a 10. He needs to be aggressive! He was debating both Biden and Wallace last night; the questions were framed for Biden; and the Left and msm tried to spin it all negative, e.g. the question about condemning “white supremacy”...
...Trump immediately said yes, yet they all pretend he dodged the issue. Trump has to get in there and aggressively stand up for himself. We are long past polite, congenial politics. Look at the coup the Left is ignoring. They will do anything to win. The fact that Trump is...

Yes, but you have to be worse than “a partisan” to look the other way on this. I am a partisan—not a blind partisan, but a partisan. But, I am also an American who loves my country and the Constitution. These despicable and amoral people attacked the heart of our Republic...
...They subverted some of our most cherished political values that must be inviolate for self-government to work—the sanctity of the vote and the peaceful transition of power. Democrats didn’t do this in 2000/2004 when Bush won. Republicans didn’t do this in 2008/2012...
...when Obama won. A lot of us are partisan. The Left has shifted. These people are intent on winning, no matter the cost—even if the cost is the very country they are so desperate to control. There is a reason the term Trump *Derangement* Syndrome was coined...

Watching POTUS's press conference and a journalist just asked Trump to commit to a peaceful transfer of power. He didn't even say, *if* a transfer is needed. They are just so insanely arrogant. This mindset that Trump shouldn't be there and no one supports him is bizarre.
Trump's response that "well see about that" is spot on. Democrats are doing everything in their power to steal this election. Everything. They are destroying our system and corrupting the integrity of the vote and the voice of the people.
And yes, there is a lot of irony hearing Democrats talk about peaceful transition of power, when they attempted a coup against Trump, concocted corruption scandal, tried to eject him from office via impeachment, and have even threatened further impeachment efforts.
