WND Exclusive – Trump Slaps Down Brennan, the Left Goes Apoplectic

The left is in meltdown over President Trump exercising his constitutional authority to revoke ex-CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance.

CNN reported that former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper was incensed by Trump’s action. Naturally, it was CNN who reported it. After all, Clapper is one of their employees, as are a number of other Obama ex-intelligence hacks.

In a July interview, Clapper said he thought he and his fellow leftists were being targeted by Trump. “The bigger issue to me is the jeopardy to First Amendment rights,” Clapper said. “That, to me, is the much bigger issue here where we’re being suppressed or oppressed because of our outspoken political views or criticism of the current president.” read more

 Establishment is Increasingly Resentful of Trump

Surfing the internet, I came across a piece by the AP, posted on Yahoo News entitled, “Trump warnings grow from forgotten Republicans.” The subtitle is, “The ranks of forgotten Republicans are growing.”

The title interested me enough to read on. Normally, Yahoo News, as a leftist “news” site, publishes only articles and commentary exclusively anti-right and anti-Republican.

However it, like all other leftists sites, specializes in posting anything contrary to President Trump, regardless of the source. By this I mean sources from not only the left, but the establishment right.

This continues to humor me. These are the same liberal news outlets that in years gone by, would vilify even the most moderate Republicans. If there is an ‘R’ after their name, they are, by default, bad. Now, anyone who aligns themselves against or displays any criticism of president Trump is a friend of the main stream press. Or at the very least, is granted a temporary reprieve from being bashed.

The article lamented, from the establishment’s point of view, the fate of the Republican Party. As if the left has any concern with that. read more

Profiles of Treason – James Comey – Part 1

By: John C. Velisek USN (Ret.)
Guest Post for the Common Constitutionalist

The Federal Bureau of Investigation under James Comey was weaponized to assist in the destruction of the rule of law. He has placed American lives at risk because of his willingness to overlook the danger of radical Islam to our nation. His incompetence has been in full view.

Yet the picture that the media presents of an Upright Boy Scout in constant search of the truth is a laughable affront to all patriotic American citizens.

Comey ignored the counter-terrorism terms, concepts, and findings that is the bulwark against the terrorism in our country. Groups such as Muslims of America (MOA), also known as Jamaat al-Furqa, have been consistently ignored as terrorist training camps that have been created here in the United States.

Investigations have shown that MOA has been the cause of many murders, one disappearance and three firebombings. MOA also calls for jihad against those it considers hostile to Islam, including the federal government.

Along with the Muslim sympathizers in the Obama administration, all information and presentations concerning Muslims and Islamic Jihad were purged from the FBI training manuals by Robert Mueller, then head of the FBI, with the willing help of James Comey. This was done because Muslim groups like CAIR, ISNA, and the SPLC found the truthful information about them to be offensive. read more

Security Clearances Didn’t Mean a Thing in the Obama Era

The other night on his radio show Mark Levin made a great point about security clearances.

For the past few days and well into the future, the left has and will continue to wail over John Brennan being stripped of his security clearance.

All the hacks, including many Obama era intelligence buffoons, who by sheer coincidence now work for CNN, the Collusion News Network, have tried to convince whomever they can just how essential it is for former intelligence officials to retain their clearances in order to be able to advise their successors. The left is treating the privilege of being granted access to top secret material as some sort of right in perpetuity.

Let’s not discuss that it is the right and ultimate responsibility of the President to approve, vacate or revoke clearances.

Let’s instead concentrate, as Mark suggests, on just what the former intelligence geniuses did when they were part of our government, with full security clearances and unfettered access of all the worldwide intelligence at their disposal. read more

We Must Resist Antifa’s Propaganda

On Sunday, a relatively small group of white nationalists, under the banner of “Unite the Right,” chose to make an ostentatious celebration of the anniversary of their rally in Charlottesville — the one in which one of their number killed a counterprotester with his car. This time, they protested directly in front of the White House. read more

Profiles of Treason – James Clapper

Guest Post by: John Velisek USN (Ret.)
for the Common Constitutionalist

James Clapper was named the director of National Intelligence in 2010 by President Obama. The American people were told that Clapper understood the importance of working with Congress and to keep Congress informed.

The words of Obama have not been borne out. We now know of the perjury before Congress that Clapper suborned. James Clapper lied to Congress about the metadata being assembled by the National Security Agency on American citizens. In the words of Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) :

“One of the most important responsibilities a senator has is oversight of the intelligence communities and can not do this job if they do not get straight answers to direct questions.”

James Clapper failed this test. His response, when brought out in the open by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, was:

“I responded in what I thought was the most truthful, or least untruthful manner.” read more

WND Exclusive – CHICAGO IS A GANG-BANGER’S PARADISE

The Chicago Tribune reported that a man, “who lives on the West side of Union Avenue,” in Chicago was awaken by gun fire. It was around 2 a.m., when along with what he described as seven or eight shots, he also heard doors slamming and the screeching of tires.

What he heard was the attempted murder of a 31-year-old female trying to escape a situation in her GMC Yukon. She was shot in the head as she tried to speed away. The woman was taken to “University of Chicago Medical center, where she was in critical condition Wednesday morning.”

Oh, you must have thought I was reporting on one of the 74 weekend shootings in the Windy City this past weekend. No. This was one of the additional 16 shootings, including seven more murders committed from Monday to Wednesday, making a five-day total of 90 shootings and 19 murders. read more

Turns Out, Free Stuff is Really Expensive

from IBD:

Democratic Socialism: Who Knew That ‘Free’ Could Cost So Much?

Since the Democratic Party took a turn for the worse toward so-called democratic socialism, the party’s leading lights have laid the promises on pretty thick. Free Medicare for all! Guaranteed income! Guaranteed jobs! Subsidized housing! Free college! Universal pre-school! Wow, and all for free.

Well, not exactly. In a devastating piece that appeared on the left-of-center web site Vox (to its credit), Manhattan Institute fellow Brian Riedl went through the simple math of what free actually costs. It’s a lot.

It’s not just the free aspect, but the fact that the democratic socialists have made so many promises that must be paid for that will make it so tough to swallow for most voters. read more

Even the EPA Admits Ethanol is no Good

from IBD:

EPA Says Ethanol Damages The Environment — Isn’t It Time To Kill The Program?

Amid all the media hoo-ha over President Trump’s latest tweets, tariffs and the Russia investigation, you might have missed a significant report — the Environmental Protection Agency says ethanol made from corn and soybeans and added to our gasoline has become an environmental disaster. So why do we continue to make it?

The devastating report — based on, yes, actual “science” — shows that the forced addition of ethanol to the nation’s gasoline is making our air dirtier.

The irony, of course, is that ethanol’s entire rationale is that it would make our air cleaner. read more
