Beck has Enlightening Interview with Rudy Giuliani

by: Brent Smith:

The more I read about, listen to and watch coverage of the Trump impeachment show, the more I’m convinced that pound for pound, the Obama administration was the most corrupt in the history of the United States.

Oh sure, past administrations introduced more damaging policies, that have haunted our nation for decades – administrations like Woodrow Wilson’s, FDR’s and Johnson’s. But as far as criminal behavior, nobody even comes close.

And within the administration, nothing seems more corrupt that the U.S. “Deep” State Department. They worked directly with the FBI and the American Embassy in Ukraine. And all effectively working on behalf of George Soros. And if you know who that is you also know that you can’t look at a picture of George Soros without saying, “Look Mama, it’s the Devil.” (h/t the Waterboy)

Heck, one of the FBI supervisors involved in all this eventually went to work for Soros.

The long pursuit of a treatment for peanut allergy is littered with false dawns, but there are also some promising possibilities on the horizon, including one currently on the cusp of FDA approval. Another has just emerged via a promising early trial at Stanford University, where scientists found a single injection of an antibody treatment enabled those with severe allergies to stomach peanuts for some time. read more

Turns Out – Going Around the State Dept. is Nothing New

What does a President do if he doesn’t believe he can trust his own State Department diplomats to conduct foreign policy the way he wishes? Find someone he can trust and send them instead. That’s exactly what Trump did when he tapped Giuliani. And Trump certainly wasn’t the first, and he won’t be the last.

Giuliani-Style ‘Shadow’ Diplomacy: Par for the Course for U.S. Presidents

Rudolph Giuliani didn’t hide the fact that he was investigating whether Ukraine interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential race. Yet most media have treated Giuliani’s efforts as sneaky and suspect because he acted at the personal behest of the president and not as an official representative of the bureaucracy. The New York Times, for example, claimed Giuliani was conducting “a shadow foreign policy campaign.”

In fact, presidents since George Washington have turned to individuals without formal government positions to pursue foreign policy interests and objectives. Private citizens, often acting as special envoys, have helped negotiate issues ranging from trade to war. While critics deride such efforts as “back-door,” “secret,” or “shadow” undertakings, many presidents have found it useful to dispatch people they trust, who can think and operate outside the constraints of official channels in handling delicate matters. read more

Our Favorite Sport Suffers as America Wussifies

from the American Spectator:

Football Is Good for Kids, Propaganda Is Not

Keep those Friday Night Lights on, unless you want America’s youth to grow up less healthy and more risk averse.

Americans watch more NFL this season after several years of ratings decline. While couches and seats fill, fields go empty. For the first time in 30 years, high school sports witnessed a participation drop last year, with football’s loss of 31,000 athletes primarily fueling the decline. Youth football more glaringly experiences a participation freefall. read more

Chick-fil-A’s Error in Judgment

by: Brent Smith

Scroll Down for Audio Version

The old saying used to be: “You are what you eat.” Now it’s, “You are what you serve – Chicken.”

Anyway you slice it, Chick-fil-A “chickened” out. Despite all the support we have given them, they just caved to the cancel culture, identity politics mob, which is a tiny fraction of actual people, compared to those have stood up and bravely supported Chick-fil-A for its courage.

Bisnow reported that Chick-fil-A will no longer be giving to Christian charities – those who don’t happen to tow the LGBT line. Oh the horror!

I’ve seen a few conservatives write that they have not in fact caved to the “shut-um-down” mob, but in my opinion they have, and it’s a damn shame, and completely unnecessary.

What has happened to the restaurant chain since the original dustup over Chick-fil-A president, S Truett Cathy’s pronouncement of his PERSONAL Christian view? Did the brand suffer? Not hardly. They went from a distant 7th largest fast food chain, passing over many heavy-hitters, to vault into third place, behind only behemoths, McDonalds and Starbucks. And that’s being open only six days out of the week. They’re closed on Sunday. What religious zealots – right? read more
