WND Exclusive – Trump Draws Thousands, Dems Can’t Draw Flies

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Trump kicked off his reelection campaign with an oversized rally in Orlando, Florida, this past Tuesday. The Amway Center Arena, with a capacity of around 20,000, was filled to the rafters.

As various news agencies reported, people started lining up outside the facility up to 40 hours in advance. This type of loyalty is only reserved for major rock stars and once in a lifetime movie events. Certainly not for politicians, and most definitely not for second-termers.

But President Trump has been attracting these kinds of crowds for years now, and it appears his popularity has not waned. read more

Of Regulations and Federal Land

from Breitbart:

Trump’s Department of Interior Axing 7,500 Regs to Give Americans Access to Federal Land

Trump’s Cabinet is putting his America First policies into place, including at the Department of Interior, where Secretary David Bernhardt announced a plan to open up more than 1.4 million acres of federal land through the elimination of some 7,500 regulations.

The land, under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, includes 74 national wildlife refuges and 15 national fish hatcheries.

Bernhardt said: read more

Mr. President – No More Interviews with Leftists

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

President Trump did himself a real disservice by agreeing to the Oval Office interview with democrat hack and former Clinton hitman, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. It was never going to be a fair interview, but like many other things, I’m sure Trump figured he “had this.”

But what Trump clearly didn’t have was a governor on his cool – especially his expression.

Anyone who has followed politics can tell you that it is all and only about optics. Everyone knows this. Sure, particularly those of us on the right, insist that substance should be king. And indeed it should. This country would be a lot better off if this were the case, but it isn’t, and ever since the first televised presidential debate, it’s unfortunately been this way.

How someone looks on camera is sadly much more important than what he or she says. It’s why someone like Abraham Lincoln could not be elected today. Think about that. To many, Lincoln is one of the most significant figures in American history, but because he lacked, shall we say, physical attractiveness, he would have no shot. read more

ICE to Begin Deportation of Millions of Illegals

Trump announces massive deportation effort to begin next week, and criticizes Dems for inaction

‘They will be removed as fast as they come in’

President Donald Trump, in a Monday night tweet, announced a large-scale effort by Immigration and Customs Enforcement to remove illegal immigrants from the United States. read more

The Swamp Won’t Go Down Without a Fight

This will be a very interesting power struggle of outsiders vs swamp-dwelling entrenched insiders. Expect everyone investigating the investigators to be mercilessly trashed, much more than has already occurred, as they, hopefully, get closer to the truth.

I have every confidence in Barr’s ability and grit, and the competence of his people – but a word of caution. Let us not get our hopes too high, as we often do, that this time, the swamp-people will finally be brought to justice. This is, after all, a classic David vs Goliath scenario.

Barr / Durham

 

from the American Spectator:

The CIA Is Running Scared

Last Wednesday the intelligence community launched its first attack on Attorney General William Barr’s investigation into its illegal acts and abuses of power during the 2016 election. In a New York Times article entitled “Justice Department Seeks to Question CIA in its Own Russia Investigation,” the IC makes clear its fear of the results of Barr’s investigation of their spy operation on candidate Trump in 2016 that continued through his early presidency.

The article, obviously written at the behest of its intelligence community sources — “current and former American officials” — is the first of many concerted attacks on Attorney General William Barr’s investigation of the joint CIA/FBI spy operation. Many other articles, based on carefully crafted leaks to the media and Congress, are sure to follow because current and former high-ranking officials of those agencies (and probably the NSA as well) have a lot to lose.

John Durham, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut, is running the investigation under Barr’s direction. From the Times report, we can easily deduce the fact that those who ran the spy op — including CIA Director Gina Haspel — are running scared from the Durham investigation. read more

WND Exclusive – IS DESPOTISM IN OUR FUTURE?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Other than Uncle Joe Biden, it seems that every other presidential candidate has crossed over from being liberal to full-blown socialist. And many on the right are surprised at this. Many seem surprised at how fast we are descending from a free and liberty-loving society to one that gives every appearance of emulating Venezuela.

But that could never happen here – right? Of course not – although not too long ago Venezuela was one of the most prosperous nations on Earth. But hey, as the saying goes: they just haven’t done socialism right. Seems no one has.

For years, we conservatives complained about Obama, saying that he was a lawless president, he was despotic, that we’ve never seen anyone like him. How did he ever get elected? read more

Podcast – Immigration – Nothing New Under the Sun

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

If you dig deep enough and sometimes far enough back you’ll discover that there really isn’t anything new under the Sun, as the saying goes. It just means that there aren’t really any new ideas. New ideas are just rehashing of something that someone, sometimes hundreds or thousands of years already thought of or suggested or implemented.

So what does this have to do with immigration? Well, because Trump’s new “border czar,” as he’s being called – and I hate that term, is suggesting a lot of “new” and radical stuff, that’s not exactly new.

In fact, President Dwight D. “I Like Ike” Eisenhower did just that beginning exactly 65 years tomorrow. With little more than 1,000 agents, Ike decreased illegal border crossings by 95%. And it can be done again if only we had the courage and will to get it done. read more

What A Concept – Move the Department of Agriculture Closer to the Agriculture

from the Blaze:

Government employees throw fit because their agency is being moved to flyover country

Why shouldn’t the Department of Agriculture work closer to the people it serves?

Employees stood and turned their backs to Sonny Perdue on Thursday as the agriculture secretary detailed the move of two of USDA's key research agencies out of Washington, D.C.

Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced that government would move two research agencies within the U.S. Department of Agriculture jobs out of Washington, D.C., to areas in the United States where food actually comes from, and bureaucrats aren’t happy about that. read more

Democrats and the Free Press

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The main stream media and the democrats claim, like Joe Biden did recently, that president Trump is an “existential” threat to this nation. They claim that Trump is an enemy to a free press in this country and wants to censor them and shut them down.

However, not once as I recall, has the president Trump ever seriously called for the shuttering of any leftist news outlets, or silencing any opposing voices. Frankly, why would he. They are doing such a bang up job of it themselves.

Just look at the tanking ratings for CNN and the like. Every time I tune in to that network, I wonder why advertisers still run commercials there. Who’s going to see them? Every month there are new reports of CNN losing more market share.

Yet still they won’t change their narrative.

Unfortunately for the left, the facts, and history, is and has always been on our side. And it’s a funny thing about facts. There is no denying them. Oh sure, they can try to spin them, but the facts are and every will be what they are. read more
