Podcast – Squad Endorses Old White Guy – Syria Will Backfire on Us

by: Brent Smith

Why would the Nouveau-Politburo Endorse Sanders?

Last week, the Squad, or 3 of the 4 Squad members, less Ariana Pressley, announced that they are endorsing Bernie Sanders for president.

To many, me included, it was quite a surprise. But I wasn’t thinking. Shock was my just my knee jerk reaction. I, like many, thought – why would the Squad, who are the embodiment of race and feminist identity politics, embrace and endorse, the oldest, the whitest, the straightest, the most monogamous MAN!!

And I mean – they have to know that Sanders doesn’t have a prayer of winning the nomination.

He’s been steadily sinking in the polls. Then there is the heart attack.

Why would they back a loser?

Syria will Backfire on us

How do I know? Easy. Because these types of “foreign entanglements” always end poorly, if not in disaster. It’s why George Washington warned us about getting involved in all the worlds problems. At the very least, we end up with a permanent footprint after the fighting stops, because we know the second we leave, they’re fighting again.

Those are our choices – just leave and let whatever is going happen – happen – or stay forever. Someday we, as a nation, are going to have to decide they we can’t rescue everyone.

And allying with the Kurds is a bad idea. They are not the Iraqi Kurds. These guys are communists and terrorists and they will never be our friends. read more

Video Podcast – The Idiocy of Hate Crime – Robots Have Feelings Too

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

When speaking of violent crime like murder, adding the term hate crime is just idiocy. What can be more heinous than murder, or worse, mass murder. How does a murder, inspired by hate, change anything, or somehow make the crime worse?

Have you heard? Robots are apparently being abused by humans, and being racially profiled. But fear not. Researchers have discovered a way for humans to curb their abuse of robots and cause them to feel empathy. Yes, we now must feel empathy for robots – for machines. read more

Justice Finally Served for SEAL Chief Gallagher

Well it’s about damn time! To me, this smelled like a set-up for the get go and that Chief Gallagher was being railroaded. You don’t get to spend as many years on the teams as did Gallagher by being an impetuous dumb-ass. For nine long months the Chief was locked away, treated as if he was already found guilty. But justice finally prevailed.


from the Washington Examiner:

Jury finds Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher not guilty of war crimes

The jury assigned to the case of accused Special Warfare Chief Edward Gallagher has found the decorated Navy SEAL not guilty of murder and attempted murder after a whirlwind trial that included bombshell revelations and twists.

Houston Children Pledge Loyalty to Iran’s Khamenei

For several years, the country of Iran has been the number one State sponsor of terrorism worldwide, according the U.S. State Department.

In September 2018, ALJAZEERA, yes aljazeera, reported that, “Nathan Sales, the [State] department’s coordinator for counterterrorism, said Iran-linked fundraising networks in West Africa, weapons caches in South America, and operational activity in Europe show the Islamic Republic ‘has no reservations about using [terrorism] on any continent.'”

“Iran remains the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism and is responsible for intensifying multiple conflicts and undermining US interests in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Bahrain, Afghanistan and Lebanon,” Sales told reporters.

In other words, they are bad news and remain an enemy of the United States and our allies.

Yet, just recently, in Houston Texas, school children were seen singing a song, praising Iran, its supreme leader Ali Khamenei, and pledging their support and loyalty, not to our president or the country they reside in, but to Iran and to leader Khamenei. read more

Hamas Shoots Gaza Protesters

Scroll Down for Audio Version

During World War II, most Soviet Soldiers were conscripted into fighting for the Motherland against the invading Nazi Army. Many soldiers didn’t necessarily wish to fight for Moscow, but were nonetheless forced to.

One might say: “Well, what’s so wrong with that? We had the draft during the Vietnam War. Many of our boys weren’t thrilled about being forced to fight. Many would have, and in fact did, stay home to protest the War.

But while both are true, there was a big difference in the way our troops were treated and how the Soviets dealt with their draftees.

Our draftees were treated as any other soldier, while the Soviets treated their conscripts as cannon fodder, actually firing on any soldiers who did not continue to advance, even in the face of massacre by the Nazis. They called these executioners, barrier troops. read more

Podcast – Al Qaeda is on the Rise Again

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

What a shocker – not that they ever really went anywhere, but Al Qaeda is on the rise again, to once again be the dominate terror network it once was. And Osama bin Laden’s youngest son, Hamza bin Laden, has been groomed for years to take over as leader of the terror network. Hamza has vowed revenge for the death of his father.

Again, what a shocker. Just like the script of some action movie.

Over the past several years al Qaeda had been little discussed and appeared to shrink from the public eye. Yet they were smart about rebuilding after the death of their leader at the hands of our Tier One Naval Special Operators in 2011. Or maybe they just got lucky that ISIS formed when they did, and filled the void they temporarily left behind.

While all eyes, guns, and press attention were trained on ISIS, al Qaeda was able to regroup and rebuild outside the spotlight.

Venezuela, Cuba may be Designated as Terror States

from the Washington Free Beacon:

GOP Senators to Venezuelan Generals: ‘You Have a Decision to Make’

Key Republicans on Capitol Hill are warning the Maduro government in Venezuela, as well as Cuba, that they could be officially designated as state sponsors of terrorism, a status that carries the harshest of U.S. sanctions.

The Trump administration—at the same lawmakers’ urging—is also weighing new sanctions on Cuban generals and other officials, as well an even harsher action: ending a waiver, known as Title III of the Helms-Burton Act, which has been in effect since 1996, according to several government officials. read more

Even Terrorists Celebrate Christmas

from Conservative Review:

Dear New York Times, here’s why Hezbollah is bad

The New York Times made waves on Christmas after the “paper of record” decided to publish a piece that trumpeted the supposed good deeds of the Iran-backed terrorist group Hezbollah.

In the piece “Christmas in Lebanon: ‘Jesus isn’t only for the Christians,’” Times reporters Vivian Yee and Hwaida Saad paint a sympathetic picture of the U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.

Writing on Christmas in Lebanon, they report: “Even Hezbollah, the Shiite political movement and militia that the United States has branded a terrorist organization, has helped ring in the season.” read more

The Black Hole that is Afghanistan

Since 2001, we’ve spent roughly $2 trillion in Afghanistan – not to mention 2,400 U.S. military killed and over 23,000 wounded. It’s a steep price for these results. We should have learned from the Soviets.

from the Washington Free Beacon: 

Nearly Half of Afghanistan Under Terrorist Control as U.S. Pours Billions Into Country

The Afghan government has lost control of nearly half the country to terrorist forces, the lowest levels of control since government officials began tracking the situation in November 2015, according to the latest oversight report.

The Special Investor General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, or SIGAR, noted a significant decline in the Afghan government’s ability to govern the district, a decline of about 16 points. Total Afghan government control stands at 55 percent, the lowest number since November 2015. Insurgent control and influence over key regions has risen about 5.5 percent, according to the report, which highlights the U.S.-backed government’s growing inability to retain influence in areas it once maintained control of. read more
