America is Truly the Only Great Nation

The snobbish British Ambassador to the United States is not a Trump fan. And that’s putting it mildly.

“Sir Kim Darroch [known to some as Sir Douche of Bag], one of Britain’s top diplomats, used secret cables and briefing notes to impugn Trump’s character, warning London that the White House was ‘uniquely dysfunctional’ and that the President’s career could end in ‘disgrace’,” writes the Daily Mail.

Evolved globalists have always had a problem with any President who wishes to put America first, and they especially hate Trump for actually stating it and setting out to accomplish it. This, in domestic and international political circles, is just not done. Nuance and platitudes are the accomplishments of diplomats – not actually getting things done. And certainly not to benefit the United States.

It’s as if Trump doesn’t understand America’s place in the global community hierarchy. We are supposed to sit quietly in the corner and let the smart people run things. Oh, but we’re expected to pay for everything, just for the privilege of breathing the same rarified air. read more

WND Exclusive – Neutering Electoral College Means More Vote Fraud

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Think California voter fraud is no big deal? After all, most of us don’t reside there. And it’s already a deep blue state. It’s not as if voter fraud in the Golden State could possibly affect other states – right?

NBC News – yes, NBC News — reported: “Widespread Voting Fraud Scheme Targets Los Angeles’ Homeless – Prosecutors have accused the group of 14 felonies for a variety of alleged acts during the 2016 and 2018 election cycles.”

I was stunned when I saw that leftist NBC actually broke this story, considering it was one of many mainstream media outlets that has insisted for years that there was no fraud being perpetrated by the Democrats. read more

Kaepernick Cherry-Picks Frederick Douglass – Ted Cruz Sets Him Straight

from the Blaze:

Ted Cruz handles NYT writer who said he has ‘no business’ using Frederick Douglass’ name

The backstory

Kaepernick quoted the following part of a Douglass speech:

“What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence? This Fourth of July is yours, not mine…There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour.”

 

Will Government Ever Extricate Itself from Higher Education?

No and why it want to. Neither Democrats nor Republicans have ever proposed such a thing, and most never will. But some on the right are at least proposing some changes.Image result for college loan bailouts

6 Serious Counterproposals To Democrats’ Insane Higher Ed Bailouts

The student loan debt bubble will soon burst, and the proper solution is not to throw $1.6 trillion of taxpayers’ money at a government-created problem.

Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, both of whom are running for president, each have a higher ed plan: Warren’s would pay off $50,000 of student debt for those earning less than $100,000, and Bernie’s would pay off practically all of America’s $1.6 trillion in student debt and make state college “free.” He’d attempt to pay for it by taxing stock and bond trades. read more

Ruminations of the Day – Kamala Harris and Antifa

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Sometimes, there’s just too much happening all at once, so it makes it difficult to decide on a topic. So instead, how about two?

One:

Here we go again with the birther thing. Really?! And it’s not even a birther question. People are just calling it that.

It worked so well last time, that someone said to themselves – self, I know we looked like complete idiots before with the whole Barack Obama birth certificate. Because of our idiocy, a new word was even coined: birther.

This time the sights have been set on Kamala Harris. No, unlike Obama, no one is claiming Harris was born elsewhere and thus not an American citizen. Websites and supposed journalists are just using the “birther” moniker because it’s more sensational.

Some black guy, Ali Alexander, tweeted that he’s tired of Kamala Harris trying to “rob American blacks of our history.” read more

WND Exclusive – THERE’S NOTHING SACRED ABOUT ‘PRECEDENT’

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

We constitutional conservatives agree that precedent is rarely a good thing.

Beyond the crafting of our original documents and some, but not all, constitutional amendments, I can think of no precedent that has ended other than badly for America.

Oftentimes precedents begin innocently enough and with supposed good intentions. But once that framework has been set, or that foundation laid, more often than not those with less than good intentions are free to cite the original to justify building upon it.

And so it will be for us if President Trump decides to set a precedent and declare a national emergency on our Southern border. I don’t just mean in order to procure some funds for the wall, which for months has been tied up in the courts. Hardly earth-shattering. I mean a full-blown national emergency declaration, shutting the border down, as he threatened to do. read more

Video Podcast – Trump Must Put the Courts in Their Place

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The other day, Daniel Horowitz of Conservative Review made a couple of great points regarding the recent supreme Court decisions.

It was regarding both the DACA non-decision and the census decision.

Neither of these “cases” should involve the courts at any level, much less the supreme Court.

I discuss why both should be decided by only the Executive branch, with no inputs from the courts, and little, if any input from even the Legislative branch. read more

Another Slap in the Face to Veterans

To equate the importance of a flag representing the gender some people pretend to be with a flag honoring our prisoners of war and those missing in action is a travesty. But to take one down and replace with another is just disgusting and a purposeful dig at all those who hold dear the military and those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

from the Blaze:

Rainbow pride flag replaces POW/MIA flag at veterans memorial plaza — and public outcry is ignited

Veteran John “Bill” Williams recalled to WRC-TV that he was in Vietnam just six days before two fellow service members were shot down, declared missing in action, “and they still haven’t found their bodies.”

 

Image source: WRC-TV video screenshotSuch losses are why the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Plaza in Rockville, Maryland, means so much to Williams.

Image source: WRC-TV video screenshotAnd it’s also why he was upset that the plaza’s POW/MIA flag was replaced with an LGBTQ rainbow flag for pride month, the station said.

“I wasn’t happy about it at all because the park is supposed to be a veterans park,” Williams told WRC. “People died. Now they took it down and put another flag up.”

He added to the station, “If they want to put the other flag underneath, they could put it underneath, but the POW flag should be flying there.”

The Left is Unhinged over Detention Facilities

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Let’s get one thing straight. The Southern border detention facilities are like Sandals Resorts compared with concentration/death/labor camps in Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia or Communist China.

And anyone who makes such an absurd comparison is a moron, who, in Nazi Germany, would have be deemed too mentally impaired to continue living. For the good of society they would have been euthanized.

Regarding the Southern border, Rush Limbaugh had a great point just yesterday, as to why the dems are hitting the conditions at these detention centers so hard. It’s because they can no longer talk about their other favorite topic – the plight of the homeless.

During both the Reagan and Bush presidencies, the left lamented regularly about the homeless situation.

Ronald Reagan was constantly blamed for American homelessness. He increased spending, “through the escalating military budget, all the while slashing funds for domestic programs that assisted working class Americans, particularly the poor.”

Decades later, Reagan was still being blamed. read more

New DHS Chief Undermines Trump

What’s that old saying? “Sometimes it’s better to stick with the devil you, than choose the one you don’t.”

Well, it’s been proven yet again, as it has many times just in the recent past.

Trump got rid of Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen because he thought her ineffective. Maybe so, but at least she was loyal. She’s the devil he knew.

Her replacement, acting Secretary, Kevin McAleenan, is the devil Trump evidently did not know.

Kirstjen Nielsen isn’t looking so bad at this time.

from Zero Hedge:

Acting DHS Chief ‘Sabotaged’ ICE Raids By Leaking Plan To Washington Post

Since the Washington Post spoiled the surprise and published a report about the Trump Administration’s plan to arrest thousands of migrant families who have been denied asylum – prompting the administration to cancel the raids – many have probably been wondering why somebody inside would break President Trump’s longstanding policy of not telegraphing your moves in advance.
