WND Exclusive – George Soros makes Alinsky look reasonable

There are things throughout history that one can point to and say, “That changed everything.” Things like electricity, indoor plumbing and gunpowder.

Then there are others we can point to as simply upgrades or improvements to the original design. Things like fuel injection, the self-contained rifle cartridge or “Hot Shots! Part Deux.”

Barack Obama improved on Saul Alinsky’s teaching of community agitating – expanding it from a local to a national movement. read more

WND Exclusive – A DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCY

It was May of 1775, and the second Continental Congress met for the first time. Growing weary of King George III’s utter lack of attention toward the petition to redress grievances sent by the first Continental Congress, the colonists decided to act.

In June of that year the Congress developed a currency separate of the crown. They also established the first Continental Army, calling themselves the “United Colonies.”

Getting word of the colonies’ seditious behavior, the king declared that the American colonists were “engaged in open and avowed rebellion.” The British Parliament passed the “American Prohibitory Act” later that year, which instituted a naval blockade of all American ports and halted the colonies’ trade with the world and among each other. read more

WND Exclusive – The Koch Brothers’ plan to rewrite the Constitution

Last week, the International Business Times wrote that the Koch brothers – yes the evil Koch brothers – “Want a New Constitution – And They’re Closer than You Think.” With a headline like this, there is little doubt of IBT’s intent.

The article regards one of my favorite topics, Article V, Convention of States. For a while now, leftist “news sites,” have been trying to scare their readers into opposing such a “radical” departure from the norm of centralized governmental authority – and largess.

Of course, they don’t describe the Convention of States in such a way. IBT, as does every other progressive outlet, must lie about the purpose of Article V and never mention the reasoning behind the article by the founders. read more

WND Exclusive – Our Friends the Saudis Insult the West

Recall the nationwide outrage of American football fans and patriots alike when then San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat down during a pre-game national anthem.

Every week thereafter he continued his antics, taking a knee, occasionally joined by other know-nothing wealthy black players throughout that season – and for what?

The backlash against Kaepernick was monumental and compounded his collapse as an NFL starting quarterback. So caustic is he that he is literally unable to find employment as even a third-string quarterback. It seems no one wants him.

He was roundly condemned by practically the entire country, save for leftist radicals, anarchists, communists and Black Lives Matter. I supposed that list was a bit redundant, as all are cut from the same red cloth. read more

WND Exclusive – Are you, too, a ‘Declarationist’?

1864 Two Cent Coin

Memorial Day has come and gone. I hope you all sought out the family of one of our fallen heroes or at least said a prayer on their behalf.

Now we’re into summer, though not technically, and America’s next great celebration is on the horizon – that of our nation’s independence.

We in America, and certainly us political wonks, write and speak constantly of the United States Constitution. We may do so often that it can sometimes seem tiresome to listen to – even for other fans of the Constitution. Not that I hear this from my friends and family or anything. read more

WND Exclusive – After Montana, will Dems Rethink Early Voting?

Democrats have always been the party of early voting. That’s fitting, considering early voting is a joke, just like the Democratic Party. But now, thanks to the result in the recent Montana congressional race, some on the left may be rethinking the whole early-voting process.

Voting is something most Americans take for granted, if we think about it at all. But to citizens of many countries around the globe, it is a high honor and privilege. Recall the celebrations and elation of the people of Iraq who triumphantly waved their purple ink-stained fingers in the air. It was a sign of their first ever opportunity to vote in a free election, where no one was guaranteed 99 percent of the vote. (The other 1 percent was never heard from again.) read more

Is it Wrong to Defend Trump?

from David Limbaugh:

One thing should be clear, at least to Republicans: The left has had the long knives out for President Donald Trump since before he was inaugurated. It intended to destroy him regardless of his conduct in office.

Liberals and even some conservatives contend that Trump’s defenders on the right are tainted, partisan, idolatrous cheerleaders who have sold their souls and principles to defend him against troublesome charges. Some argue that even if former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton engaged in similar activities, two wrongs don’t make a right.

 Trump supporters, they say, have always insisted they are strict adherents of the rule of law but are showing their true colors in defending Trump. But are they? Why is defending Trump against these excessive charges a betrayal of the rule of law? Just because he’s handled some things disappointingly doesn’t mean he’s committed a crime or an impeachable offense. The rule of law requires that we be discriminating about these matters and not jump on the bandwagon to condemn Trump just because we don’t approve of some of his actions or statements.

WND Exclusive – Leftist Cannibals Eat Their Own Over Warming

Note: On its 20th anniversary this week, I’d like to thank WND for being a platform for the reasonable in a sea of the irrational and to thank its editors for allowing me a voice.

I grew up being taught, and have subsequently tried to instill in my kids, that you don’t take pleasure in the misery of others – that it is just not charitable.

While this is a great sentiment, and I think we all (well, most all) try to live by this basic rule, occasionally it belies our baser human instincts. Sometimes you just can’t help but crack a smile or feel a warped sense of satisfaction when someone “gets their comeuppance,” as it were.

Regardless of your feelings regarding President Trump, if you are conservative, you, like me, felt elated that Hillary Clinton not only lost, but did so in humiliating fashion. We should merely be satisfied that she lost and not revel in her anguish. But I did, and admit it – you did also.

I know it’s wrong, but there is little we conservatives enjoy more than witnessing the crack-up of leftists. And even more satisfying is when they turn on there own, which seems to be happening more and more. read more

WND Exclusive – Why is this ‘Unaborted Starlet’ so Depressed?

Hollywood actress Jessica Chastain was one of Variety’s Power of Women honorees at the magazine’s luncheon last Friday, in support of her chosen cause, Planned Parenthood. She was also interviewed by Variety on a not-so wide range of topics. By that I mean it was just whining about how tough women have it – and oh – how scary President Trump is. In other words, the usual liberal pablum we’ve come to expect from spoiled overpaid Hollywood geniuses.

Variety: “It’s 2017, and we’re still talking about how Hollywood doesn’t treat women the same as men. Why is this still an issue?”

Chastain: “It’s depressing in terms of everything. It’s depressing in terms of women directors. But I think the problem is not just that. Yes, we need female filmmakers. … There’s a huge audience out there that wants stories about women. If you have a film that’s from a feminine point of view and 90 percent of the critics are men, that’s not diversity in that industry.” read more

WND Exclusive – Why ‘National Reciprocity’ for Guns is Immaterial

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Over the weekend, I was perusing the online NRA-ILA newsletter. If you are gun enthusiast, own and/or carry a weapon, or merely a supporter of the Second Amendment and gun rights, I would suggest you sign up for the newsletter.

Most articles interest me, but one in particular seemed intriguing. It is entitled, “5 reasons to support National Reciprocity.”

Although every year I feel I’m a bit closer to becoming a self-taught, “so-called” constitutional expert, I’m still far from it. So I thought, why not read what the real experts had to say on the matter of reciprocity, or the extension of rights and privileges from state to state. read more
