Like John McCain – Jeff Flake’s Hatred for Trump Clouds his Judgment

Hatred and want for revenge may feel good at the time, but they are bereft of any reason and logic. And despite conventional wisdom, they are poor motivators. Yet still, these too irrational emotions continue to be the catalyst for a lot of what goes on in Washington. And RINO Senator Jeff Flake just proved it once again. His hatred for the president has allowed another week’s destruction of a good man and unfortunate family.

MS-13 is Back in the News and It’s All Trump’s Fault

The savage immigrant gang, MS-13, is back in the news. I guess they are always in the news, as these animals (h/t: president Trump) never take a break. Let’s just say they’re back in the national news. CNN’s Sunday website homepage featured no less than five stories about the gang.

The gang made the national headlines once again, due to a high profile murder that occurred less than two weeks ago.

We may remember a 16 old girl and her friend were viciously attacked and murdered on Long Island on September 13, 2016. You may also recall that the 16 old victim’s mother Evelyn Rodriguez, was recognized by President Trump during his State of the Union address.

On Friday, September 14, Ms. Rodriguez was struck and killed by an SUV. The driver of the vehicle had been arguing with Evelyn, when he just sped forward, struck and killed her. Congressman Peter King (R-NY) was on his way to meet Evelyn at her daughter’s grave site when he got word of the murder.

And that should be the end of it – a tragic occurrence. Police have the driver in custody and have yet to disclose his ties to MS-13, if any. read more

Billionaire Republican Donor Jumps Ship

There is a line in the movie iRobot, where the main character, played by Will Smith, is arguing with another character. At one point he becomes so frustrated that he says to her that she must be “the dumbest smart person” he’s ever met.

And that’s the point of this article, or more to the point, the question it revolves around.

Do you ever wonder how otherwise brilliant business people can be so darn ignorant or so monumentally naïve? Well I certainly do. But it seems these days to be becoming much more common place. And I think a lot just simply has to do with otherwise smart peoples’ dislike and discomfort of the Trump public persona.

Count Ohio billionaire and longtime Republican donor Les Wexner, as one of these. “Wexner, the CEO of retail conglomerate L Brands, which owns Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works, announced at a leadership summit in Columbus on Thursday that he ‘won’t support this nonsense in the Republican Party’ anymore,” writes the HuffPo.

What does he mean by nonsense? In a word – Trump, but I think it’s a little more than just that. read more

WND Exclusive – THE POLITICIZATION OF HURRICANE MARIA

On Aug. 28, 2018, the Atlantic published a piece declaring: “A Year After Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico Finally Knows How Many People Died.”

The subtitle adds: “A new, definitive study from George Washington University finds that almost 3,000 people lost their lives – and highlights the government’s failures before and after the storm.”

No bias there, right?. But to which government are they referring? Well, since the Atlantic.com leans decidedly left, we can guess which government, or more succinctly, which administration.

But what should first jump off the page is that GW University had to do a study to determine the figure. And the figure is deceiving at best. President Trump is correct to discount the 3,000 person mark. read more

Video Podcast – Trump Worse than Hitler – Gay Federal Reserve – Feinstein October Surprise

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

An establishment Republican “strategist” went on MSNBC to decry president Trump by basically saying that if he had a time machine, he would rather travel back and change Trump rather than stop Adolf Hitler.

The Federal Reserve now has its first openly gay female bank head. Hooray for the Fed!

Senator Diane Feinstein is attempting to “October Surprise” Trump’s supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh with a letter accusing him of sexual misconduct in high school. Better late than never, eh Di-Fi. read more

Beginning to Worry about the Safety of the President

At virtually every one of the countless rallies he has given in various States, there has been at least one, if not a number of loud, obnoxious protesters, screaming at Trump while he speaks. So angry are these people that, from across the venue, you can see the veins popping on their foreheads.

Now, they may be getting paid by some leftist PAC to act this way, but they also may just be this angry. As we’ve seen on a number of occasions, these unhinged leftists are indeed just this angry.

At more than a few of his rallies, the President has said: “How did he (or she) get in here?” How indeed.

Now one has to assume that these people are screened for contraband and weapons prior to gaining entry, but we know security can’t be right 100% of the time.

So this begs the question. Would any of these lunatic protesters be unbalanced enough to attempt to harm the President? Would they, like jihadists, be willing to sacrifice themselves for their psychotic cause? read more

Trump Derangement is Metastasizing

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is alive, not well, getting worse, and would not be allowed anywhere, or at any other time in otherwise polite society. As bad as Obama was, I can’t think of an incident where someone was attacked or even berated for merely voting for the guy.

TDS started out rather like a joke or comic meme, as a way of describing commentators, angry at the result of the 2016 Presidential election. And they appeared not to be upset that Hillary didn’t win – for no one, not even her supporters really like Hillary. She just happened to be the next one up – the most current leftist in which to maintain the statist status quo. It was that and she was not Trump. And as we know and were witness to, their dreams were shattered on that November night, in favor of the billionaire Neanderthal.

But TDS and radical leftism is metastasizing. By this I mean that it is spreading from the theoretical, to being a strictly verbal or gestural expression, to now, physical manifestation. Those afflicted, like addicts, can no longer control their baser impulses. read more

McCain was a Tale of Two Men

First I’d like to pay tribute to the Navy Hero. Yep – John McCain was a war hero. Not because he was shot down. That happened to many pilots during the Vietnam non-war war. It’s what happened after.

McCain was captured, then offered release by the North Vietnamese and allowed to go home. Like few others might, he refused and stayed voluntarily so as to not abandon his men, knowing full well the torture that he would be in for. He paid dearly for his decision, which adversely affected him for the rest of his life. And given the choice, I believe that Naval Officer McCain would have done it all over again for the sake of his men.

If that ain’t heroism – there is no such thing.

But why would the left, who hates the military, be so enamored with McCain?

Well, it sure couldn’t be that he was the poster boy Never-Trumper? Naw – that couldn’t be it. read more
