Video Podcast – The Trump Phone Call – A Look Back

by: Brent Smith

July 25, 2019: The infamous Trump/Ukraine president phone call. Trump withheld aid money from the Ukraine until they reopened the investigation into Burisma and Hunter Biden. So claim the democrats.

Oh it had nothing at all to do with Trump wanting the Ukrainians to clean up their own government – weed out their own deep state corrupt bureaucrats and politicians.

And somehow, those in charge overlooked the fact that an investigation had already been reopened six months prior to the “infamous” phone call.

I discuss that and much more. 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

Trump Won’t Allow Iran’s Foreign Minister to Speak at the United Nations

Yet another reason to like Trump.

And is it time again to broach the topic of getting the United Nations the hell out of the United States? It could be moved to Brussels, Belgium, and take up residence next door to the European Union Headquarters. Surely they would gladly welcome the Iranian Foreign Minister to spew his propaganda against the U.S. for as long as he wishes.

And when they’ve all packed up at moved out of New York City, Mayor de Blasio could then turn the U.N. building into a homeless shelter.

The Trump Administration Is Right To Block Iran’s Foreign Minister From Addressing UN

The Trump Administration Is Right To Block Iran’s Foreign Minister From Addressing UN

Diplomat Extraordinaire John Kerry Speaks With Hossein Fereydoun And Javad Zarif

According to recent reports, the United States has denied a visa to Iranian Foreign Minister Javed Zarif, thus preventing him from addressing the United Nations in New York later this week. Despite the inevitable hyperbolic reactions we are likely to witness among the press, it is our port of entry, and the United States has every right to deny admittance to any individual for a host of reasons. read more

Soleimani was Just a Terrorist

by: Brent Smith

Scroll Down for Audio Version

There was a State Funeral yesterday. One in which CNN reported: “Tehran’s streets were packed with black-clad mourners Monday as a sea of people turned out to pay their respects to Qasem Soleimani, the Iranian general killed by a US drone strike in Baghdad last week.”

“The mourners clutched photographs of Soleimani,” added an apparently sympathetic CNN, “a revered and powerful figure who headed the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps elite Quds Force and led Iran’s overseas operations. Posters with his image, and a black backdrop, were plastered across the capital.”

And yes, CNN is correct. The streets of Tehran were completely clogged with people. How many were actual mourners is anyone’s guess.

In other words, how many “mourners” wanted to be elsewhere, but felt for their own safety and well-being, they had better show up and act the part of distraught supporters … or else.

I liken it to virtually all other evil dictatorial regimes, whose citizens are told where to be and how to act. read more

Video Podcast – Embassy, Trump, Retaliation, Democrats and Terrorists

by: Brent Smith

We all know that thousands of pro-Iranian thugs attempted a siege of the US embassy in Baghdad on New Years Eve.

And by now we’ve heard that president Trump retaliated rather quickly by offing the man behind the attempted embassy siege.

I ask, if not swift retaliation, what was Trump supposed to, as well as discuss his not going to Congress, the similarities of these Islamists with American leftists (how dare I), and the juxtaposition of Trump to Ronald Reagan. read more

A Peace Deal with Afghanistan?

by: Brent Smith

So the United States wants the Taliban to agree to a ceasefire in Afghanistan. Isn’t that special.

Politico reported a couple of days ago that a peace agreement is what America is seeking, but first the Taliban must agree to a ceasefire.

Apparently, long defunct peace talks began again after president Trump made his surprise stop in November to see the troops in Afghanistan.

It’s my opinion that Trump really wants a deal with the Taliban in order to fulfill his promise to wind down the endless wars and American presence all over the world. And for Trump, it’s not just some hollow political slogan – “bring our boys (and girls) home.” He really means it.

It’s a laudable goal to be sure. One I agree with – particularly regarding Afghanistan.

And I also think that the President understands that, short of a “peace” agreement, our military is there for a long time. And it’s already been 18 years. read more

Coming Soon to America – Fines and Arrests for Unapproved Speech?

by: Brent Smith

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Think about it. Is it not the next logical step to a complete shutdown of free and possibly controversial speech?

But that’s ridiculous – right?

No one is even suggesting such an absurd and over-the-top solution to curb offensive speech.

Sure, they’re have been many dozens of conservatives, particularly on College campuses, who have been protested, shouted down and even run off campus by leftist gangs.

But that’s where it ends. No one is even suggesting fining people who offend.

And if you’re thinking that no one in the country has been fined for such a thing, you’d be right. At least not yet. read more

Big Government Will Lower Our Drug Prices!!

Isn’t it funny (not funny ha ha) that our government is the only one who is never to blame for price increases or shortages of any kind. It’s always Big Oil, the military industrial complex, etc. Or in this case, evil Big Pharma. We can’t name one industry that doesn’t get blamed for these occurrences (except of course, Big Education), yet the government, with its penchant for artificially picking winners and losers, escapes all scrutiny. We’re about to see it happen again. And when it has the opposite effect, we’ll all be instructed to once again blame “Big Pharma.”

“Cold” Medicine: Canadian Drug Imports Will Cost Americans

The solution to drug prices is ending freeriding, not buying Canadian

In the hopes of lowering the cost of prescription drugs for Americans, the Trump Administration announced plans in late July to draft a proposal for the importation and sale of prescription drugs from Canada. The announcement was overshadowed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s drug pricing bill and the bipartisan package before the Senate in September—but is a cause for concern, nonetheless. A dozen statesCongress—even the Trump Administration, despite initial opposition—are now considering such legislation.

If “buy-Canadian” doesn’t sound like a policy consistent with Trump’s platform of putting Americans first, that’s because it isn’t. Importing drugs from Canada is an ineffectual and counterproductive policy. President Trump had it right the first time. The prohibitive drug prices that Americans deal with are not solely caused by pharmaceutical companies; they are primarily the product of a failure of government policy.

Instead of artificial fixes, the Trump Administration should directly address the global freeloading and regulatory glut that’s costing Americans—both in dollars and lives. read more

WND Exclusive – Dem hack Hank Johnson’s Manifest Hypocrisy

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

President Trump is accused by the Democrats of a quid pro quo, or bribery or extortion – at least until they come up with another synonym that focus groups better than those three.

According to Democrats, Trump threatened to withhold aid money and military supplies from Ukraine unless they opened an investigation into Joe and Hunter Biden.

To this, Democratic hack from Georgia Rep. Hank Johnson said:

“Attempting to coerce a foreign government into digging up dirt on a political opponent, then trying to cover it up by unlawfully refusing to turn over the whistleblower complaint to Congress, crosses a red line.”

In case you’re thinking – where have I heard that name, let me elucidate. And no, you didn’t see his name on the Harvard doctoral registry, or the Mensa International website. Let’s see if this jogs your memory: read more

Video Podcast – PA Abortion Bill – John Solomon Ukraine Corruption Facts

by: Brent Smith

In segment one I discuss the passage of a bill to protect the lives of unborn babies with Down syndrome by the Pennsylvania legislature.

While is to be congratulated, why stop at unborn babies with a particular disability. Why not just pass a bill to include all unborn babies.

I also give my view on abortion over all – and it may not be what you think.

In segment two I discuss a recent article penned by acclaimed investigative reporter, John Solomon, where he issues 28 facts to refute the claims of Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s that “asserted all the factual elements in my [Solomon’s] columns at The Hill about Ukraine were false.”

Unlike Vindman, who, in my opinion, is a disgrace to the dress uniform he wore, all of Solomon’s assertions are backed up by cold hard facts.

Solomon describes Vindman as a hero, but to me, he is just another sell-out to the deep state, like was John McCain. Heroic military deeds can never excuse current behavior. read more
