WND Exclusive – Gulags for Deplorables: Now They’ve Actually Said It

from Brent for World Net Daily:

We conservatives have been warning of the rise of the radical left for some time – the rise of hard-line leftism / fascism / communism. Take your pick, because fundamentally, they are the same.

And for those warnings, we’ve been derided as right-wing loons and sky-is-falling paranoids. This could never happen in America, they say. Americans may joke about such things, but when push comes to shove, no one will ever advocate for communist-style gulags and reeducation camps.

Still, with history on our side, we soldier on, ever wary of the signs that may point to this rising.

Well, evidently, the time is now. read more

Podcast – War Powers – Did Trump have the Authority to Kill Soleimani?

by: Brent Smith

Did Trump have the right, the authority under the Constitution to kill Soleimani and that other bag of dirty, al-Muhandis?

That’s been the burning question on everyone’s mind and just another perceived log, stoking the democrat fires of impeachment. Can this also be added to their Articles of Impeachment – or maybe saved for later?

Was Trump Constitutionally correct in “unilaterally” ordering the strike against the left’s new war hero, Qassem Soleimani?

Well, the short answer is yes, and I will explain exactly why the president was and is right and the dems are once again wrong. read more

‘T’ for Teen T-Rex

Wouldn’t it be neat if there had been a pint-size Tyrannosaurus? Well, sorry, but apparently there wasn’t. According to new research, skeletons that were thought to belong to a pygmy relative are actually from teenage T. Rexes. They’re still pretty interesting, though. read more

WND Exclusive – A New Year – Time to Reintroduce the 10 Tenets of Conservatism

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Regarding socialism, it wasn’t that long ago, only about 10 years, that Democrats were singing a different tune. In reaction to a 2009 Newsweek cover entitled, “We Are All Socialists Now,” then Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, D-N.H., at a town hall meeting in 2010, exclaimed, “I don’t think anybody in this country believes in socialism. I don’t know ’em, and I don’t hang out with ’em, but maybe you do.”

You can’t hardly say that anymore. Socialism/communism/leftism is on the rise, especially among younger voters. A Fox News poll from just a couple of weeks ago “finds 31 percent of voters view socialism favorably, up 6 percentage points since February (the first time the question was asked).”

This is lunacy, of course. But the poll is likely fairly accurate. So what can be done?

In the past, I and many other conservatives have insisted that we on the right must educate the electorate. But this requires us to hold their attention long enough to do so.

Sadly, that’s getting increasingly difficult. So what’s the alternative? Conservatism isn’t really conducive to sound bites and slogans. read more

Bill of Rights: 9 Apply to the Individual, but 1 Does Not?

by: Brent Smith

No Audio Version

It’s dawned on me what should be the most obvious argument for the individual right to “keep and bear arms.”

The primary purpose of the 10 Amendments that form the Bill of Rights is to protect the natural rights of the individual from an encroaching federal government function. The only way someone would not know this is if they have not read them.

In fact, each of the Bill of Right’s 10 Amendments, of which there were originally 17, states this by use of the words person, people, owner, or accused. The only two that do not expressly state the individual are the 7th and 8th. They do however use inference to make the point that both pertain to the individual.

So when a leftist begins to spout off about the Second Amendment, that it applies only to militias, we must remind of them of this. If necessary, review each of the 10 and it will become clear that the founders did not intend for nine of the 10 to pertain primarily to the individual and yet single out just the Second as not having any individual protection component. It defies logic. But then so does liberalism. read more

Mad-Max Lambo Goes to Auction

Danton has turned the weird-looking Espada into an 8-foot wide Lamborghini hot rod

Mecum

Before the Countach came along in the 1980s and defined the classic shape that’s underpinned nearly every Lambo since, the biggest selling Lamborghini was the Espada, made between 1968-1978. That’s not to say it was a high volume machine; only 1217 of this 4-seater grand tourer were ever built. Which makes this crazy rat rod even more special. read more

Giuliani Friendlier to the Jews than an Actual Jew

I’m beginning to wonder whether Rudy may actually be hated by the left more than his boss, president Trump.

from the American Spectator:

On Rudy Giuliani Being More Jewish Than the Despicable Apostate George Soros

In New York City, where Bill de Blasio has nothing else to worry about, the controversy is now into its second day over comments that Rudy Giuliani made the other day in an interview with New York magazine, in which Giuliani said that George Soros is hardly a Jew and that Rudy is more a Jew than Soros. read more

The Gift of Our Constitution

from the New York Sun:

As President Trump and Speaker Pelosi retreat to their corners for Christmas, we find ourselves thinking of the gift of the Constitution. It was ten years ago that the Sun started writing about America’s “constitutional moment.” We had just brought out — as “The Citizen’s Constitution” — our annotated guide to the national parchment. It was animated by a sense that our politics had become so divided, so bitter, that our factions would end up fighting ever more battles on America’s legal bedrock. read more

WND Exclusive – Democrats’ Impeachment Roe v. Wade

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Here’s an odd question.

What do abortion and impeachment have in common?

Both are supposed safe and quite infrequently utilized.

Isn’t this what the left has been preaching to us since Roe v. Wade – that abortions should be safe and RARE?

I don’t know if “safe” applies to impeachment – probably not – but for sure, both should be rare.

But like abortions, I fear that the Democrats have opened yet another Pandora’s box.

The original “sales” pitch for legalized abortions was that they were meant to be rare. read more

When Was The Real First Thanksgiving? That Depends

On October 3, 1789, America’s first President under the 1787 Constitution, George Washington, issued a historic Thanksgiving George Washington's Thanksgiving ProclamationProclamation.  Congress had instructed him to “recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God.”  This he did.  Many consider this the nation’s first Thanksgiving Proclamation.  But was it?  Well, that depends.

There had been many previous days of a general giving of thanks in America’s history, some bearing little relation to our present holiday.  Many took place long before America was a country, under the reign of the monarchs of England.   read more
