Leftist Piranhas Begin to Eat Themselves

Even the threat of a tightening noose sends leftists into a feeding frenzy. As Attorney General Bill Barr commences with the task of investigating the investigators regarding the Russiagate hoax, the left is already feeling the heat. And so begins the blame game of, it’s not my fault – he made me do it!

from the Washington Examiner:

Blame game pits John Brennan against James Comey over support for Steele dossier

A debate is heating up over whether it was former CIA Director John Brennan or former FBI Director James Comey who attempted to include the unverified Trump dossier in the high-profile Intelligence Community Assessment of January 2017 that focused on Russian interference. read more

Video Podcast – A Thousand Guns in Bel-Air

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

A 57-year-old man identified in court records as the longtime companion of Los Angeles real estate mogul Cynthia Beck was behind bars for several hours overnight after police seized more than 1,000 guns — including some that authorities allege were fully automatic — from a home in Bel-Air.

I discuss Girard Saenz’s gun collection, the fact that he’s a licensed gun dealer and collector and the old gun he owns, how is it a crime to own so many guns, California’s gun laws, the Second Amendment and what caused the authorities to raid the home. read more

Just How Far left is Ilhan Omar?

from the American Spectator:

Is Ilhan Omar a Communist?

Commie Angela Davis

Now there’s a headline to make progressives light their hair on fire. Few things set off liberals quite like anti-communism. Pro-communism doesn’t bother them much, at least not enough to openly complain. But anti-communism? One whiff of it sends them hyperventilating into howls of McCarthyism. The same seems true nowadays for socialism, as evident when Donald Trump devoted a mere line or two to it in his State of the Union. Judging from liberal hysteria, one would think Trump had announced a resurrection of the House Committee on Un-American Activities. What a shameless Red-baiter!

That brings me to Ilhan Omar, stalwart member of the Democratic Socialists of America, which describes itself as “the largest socialist organization in the United States.” Read: “socialist,” even as self-described “democratic socialists” insist that they eschew the label “socialist.” read more

Better to be Awake than Woke

by: Brent Smith at Common Constitutionalist

I enjoy viewing various #WalkAway stories from time to time – seeing what it took for each to wise up to the nonsense they’ve been spoon-fed their whole lives.

For those unfamiliar, the #WalkAway campaign was founded by Brandon Straka, whose liberal eyes were opened to the hypocrisy and lies of the left and decided to WalkAway from liberalism and the democrat party.

Now, thousands are too having their eyes open as they join the campaign.

The following is a #WalkAway video posted by Shannon. She claims to be an independent, not affiliated with either party, but always voted democrat, until recently. read more

WND Exclusive – VENEZUELA: REPLACING 1 SOCIALIST WITH ANOTHER

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

What should we make of the situation in Venezuela? Is this really something the United States should be involved in, or is it just another in a string of American buttinskies, injecting ourselves into a nation’s internal struggle?

While many on the right are cheering the most recent coup attempt to overthrow the current Thug-in-Chief, Nicholas Maduro, by Juan Guaidó, I’m beginning to wonder if it’s just another case of replacing the devil we know with the devil we don’t. read more

The Left Fears Bill Barr Most of All

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Democrats will always telegraph who they are afraid of most. Oh sure, if one has an ‘R” for Republican after his or her name, you can be certain you’re generally a target.

As an aside, and completely off topic, it’s odd that I, one the more politically incorrect humans in America, actually gave a thought when I penned the words his and her. As if there is another option. Yet today, according to one source there are now 96. I just chuckled under my breath as I wrote the two terms, thinking how absurd society has become and even I, in some small way, while not succumbing to it, did give it even a passing thought.

Anyway, back to it.

But while the left will never be kind to the R’s, there will rarely be a full-throated assault on them, for they are not the ones the dems fear. read more

What to do with the Postal Service

The United States Postal Service is due to become completely insolvent by 2024. They continue to hemorrhage cash every year to the tune of billions of dollars. With the onset of UPS, FedEx and electronic mail, the post office looks to be doomed. But can, or should it be saved? And if so, how?

The answer is, as it is always, lies in innovation. But as the Post Office is controlled by our geniuses in government, it is virtually impossible to do so. That and it isn’t allowed to compete with private sector industries. If it is to be saved, there are but two choices – allow it to continue to be propped up with more government money, or to privatize it.

Andrew Heaton for Reason TV discusses why privatization is really the only the option. read more

Has the Left Planted a Red Flag in Your State?

from American Thinker:

Red Flag Laws and Individual Rights

Historically, the synonymous concepts of liberty and freedom were assumed to be the inherent right of every citizen born in our country.  Not so much these days.

In my home state of Colorado recently, the Democrat-controlled legislature signed a ‘red flag’ bill into law.  Joining fourteen other leftist-controlled states, Colorado’s ‘red flag’ law enables the forceful removal of a citizen’s firearms. My state represents another win in the left’s ongoing crusade to separate Americans from their personal liberty.

On the surface, ‘red flag’ laws appear reasonable.  When a person exhibits warning signs they are an extreme danger to themselves and others, the best course of action is to intervene by taking away their arms.  Common sense, the Left argues.  After all, if a court determines a person poses a societal risk, forcibly seizing their firearms reduces that risk.  Right? read more

Joe Biden’s Apology Tour Begins with a History Rewrite

from the Federalist:

Joe Biden Should Apologize To Clarence Thomas, Not To Anita Hill

History becomes myth, myths become legends, and legends become unquestionable. And if a biased media is writing the story, even dubious tales can turn into unassailable “fact” with the right combination of narrative and time. This has been the case with Anita Hill.

Hill’s testimony alleging that Clarence Thomas, then a nominee for the Supreme Court, repeatedly harassed her in the workplace made for explosive politics back in 1991. It’s reemerging as an issue in 2019 thanks to the new presidential candidacy of Joe Biden. As senator, Biden chaired the Judiciary Committee, and in the eyes of the Democratic voters he hopes to court, he permitted too many tough questions attempting to ascertain the truth from Hill. read more

Squishy Republicans Accept the Left’s Socialist Climate Change Hoax

from Conservative Review:

Republicans embrace socialism in climate change message

What a crock.

In an article titled, “GOP hoping voters open to warnings of Democrats’ socialism,” the Associated Press looks at Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., who has been telling town hall participants that socialism is afoot and that he wants everyone to join him in the fight against it.

The article is slanted, as most AP articles are. Its writer tried to make the point, by interviewing random people, that Republicans are stoking fear when the issue really doesn’t faze most people. The article ends with a wry warning to Republicans that crying wolf over Democrats’ socialist views might actually hurt them in 2020. read more
