The Left is Unhinged over Detention Facilities

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

Will the Next Blasey Ford – Come on Down!

A woman has come forward, 20 something years after the fact (except that there are no facts), to claim Donald Trump sexually assaulted her. And as they always do, in a rush to push the narrative that Trump is evil, and of course trust the accuser as unassailable, they snag her for an interview on CNN (of course), only to discover that she is even less believable than Christine Blasey Ford.


from the Daily Wire:

YIKES: CNN Interview With Trump Rape Accuser Goes Off The Rails

On Monday morning, CNN’s “New Day” anchor Alisyn Camerota interviewed Elle magazine advice columnist E. Jean Carroll —and it was a doozy.

Carroll, who claims in her new book that President Donald Trump attempted to sexualy assault her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room more than two decades ago, changed her rationale for not pressing charges against Trump and stumbled over answers in a disaster interview with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota Monday.

President Trump has vehemently denied the accusations, claims he doesn’t know Carroll, and has publicly thanked Bergdorf Goodman for “confirming they have no video footage of any such incident.”

In the first part of the interview, Carroll detailed the alleged rape, telling Camerota, “When we walked into the lingerie department there was nobody there, which is strange. It was in the evening, so — and on the counter were three really fancy boxes and a see-through bodysuit. He walked right to the bodysuit and snatched it up and said, ‘Go put this on.’ Now, that struck me as so funny because here I am, a 52 — I am not going to put — my idea was — I said, ‘No, you put it on.’ And he said, ‘No, it looks like it fits you.’ I said, ‘No, it goes with your eyes.’ So I am spinning a comedy scene in my head.”

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

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

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

Video Podcast – All We Ever Needed to Know about Robert Mueller

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Was there ever any doubt regarding the motivation of Special Council Robert Mueller and his merry band of left leaning hit-men?

If there was a doubt, there should no longer be one – not after his now infamous closing remarks where he turned our justice system on its head and declared president Trump guilty until proven innocent.

I discuss his motivation, one particular team member and something about Trump I haven’t heard anywhere else. read more

WND Exclusive – So Just What is a High Crime and Misdemeanor?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Libertarian Rep. Justin Amash is a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, a fiscal hawk and has a Conservative Review Liberty Score of 90, which is excellent.

So what does all this conservatism have to do with Amash’s recent call for the impeachment of President Trump? In other words, what does one have to do with the other? Well … absolutely nothing. But some “conservative” websites mean to somehow equate the two.

As a general rule, I don’t like calling out another conservative site, particularly as I often quote them. But the Washington Examiner’s piece entitled, “Get mad at Justin Amash all you want, but he’s still the biggest fiscal conservative,” tries to do just that. read more

Shocker – Democrat Judge Donated to Committee Democrats

Now what do we think would be the reaction from the press and democrats if this were a judge appointed by a Republican president? That’s right – conflict of interest – recusal – recusal – recusal – constitutional crisis. Yet strangely, all we hear are crickets.

from Fox News:

Judge who upheld Trump subpoena donated to Dems on committee seeking the records

The New York federal judge who ruled on Wednesday that the Trump administration must comply with two subpoenas from the House Financial Services and Intelligence Committees has donated in the past to a slew of big-name Democrats — including two who currently sit on those committees, according to federal election filings.

After an hour of oral arguments, Barack Obama-appointed U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos ruled the subpoenas to Deutsche Bank and Capital One have “a legitimate legislative purpose,” and that Trump was unlikely to prevail in a lawsuit to quash the requests. Judges have the option to recuse themselves if there is an appearance of bias. read more

This is What a Real Constitutional Crisis Looks Like

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

For as long as Donald Trump remains president, democrats will not stop trying to remove him from office. They will never admit defeat and will never cease trying to undermine the president at every step.

And, because of this, a new precedent has been set in the political arena. We said early on in Trump’s presidency, that everyone will eventually be forced to pick a side. Neutral bystanders will no longer be allowed to exist. Partisanship will be forced upon all the citizenry.

Shortly after Trump was elected, the attacks on him started to ramp up. So nakedly egregious is the injustice of the left, that people who were not previously Trump supporters, are beginning to come to his defense.

At first, many conservatives defended Trump regarding policy alone, but now, it’s just full-throated defense of a president who deserves none of the slings and arrows being hurled his way. The attacks are so virulent that they now threaten our republic. The attacks against Trump are no longer just directed at him, but at the very office itself.

This, if the left is at all interested, is what a real constitutional crisis looks like. read more
