WND Exclusive – Gulags for Deplorables: Now They’ve Actually Said It

from Brent for World Net Daily:

We conservatives have been warning of the rise of the radical left for some time – the rise of hard-line leftism / fascism / communism. Take your pick, because fundamentally, they are the same.

And for those warnings, we’ve been derided as right-wing loons and sky-is-falling paranoids. This could never happen in America, they say. Americans may joke about such things, but when push comes to shove, no one will ever advocate for communist-style gulags and reeducation camps.

Still, with history on our side, we soldier on, ever wary of the signs that may point to this rising.

Well, evidently, the time is now. read more

Rapinoe, Like all Athletes, Should Just Shut Up and Play

Like most Americans, I love to watch the Olympics. What makes it special is that it only comes around every two years – since they began staggering the Summer and Winter games.

But every so often, politics creeps into the games.

We all remember the pink-haired wingnut and social justice warrior, Megan Rapinoe, of the U.S. Women’s Soccer team, who “took a knee” during the playing of our National Anthem at a World Cup game. That was special.

But unlike her contemporary and fellow social justice windbag, Colin Kaepernick, Megan remains employed. This is likely due to the fact that her team is not privately owned, but is run by the U.S. Soccer Federation as a nonprofit, 501(c)(3).

We haven’t had to endure Megan’s nonsense lately. However, with the Olympics right around the corner, I’m sure she’s already busy planning something that will surely be special. And by special, I mean completely asinine.

But not if the International Olympic Committee has anything to say about it. read more

WND Exclusive – A New Year – Time to Reintroduce the 10 Tenets of Conservatism

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Regarding socialism, it wasn’t that long ago, only about 10 years, that Democrats were singing a different tune. In reaction to a 2009 Newsweek cover entitled, “We Are All Socialists Now,” then Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, D-N.H., at a town hall meeting in 2010, exclaimed, “I don’t think anybody in this country believes in socialism. I don’t know ’em, and I don’t hang out with ’em, but maybe you do.”

You can’t hardly say that anymore. Socialism/communism/leftism is on the rise, especially among younger voters. A Fox News poll from just a couple of weeks ago “finds 31 percent of voters view socialism favorably, up 6 percentage points since February (the first time the question was asked).”

This is lunacy, of course. But the poll is likely fairly accurate. So what can be done?

In the past, I and many other conservatives have insisted that we on the right must educate the electorate. But this requires us to hold their attention long enough to do so.

Sadly, that’s getting increasingly difficult. So what’s the alternative? Conservatism isn’t really conducive to sound bites and slogans. read more

WND Exclusive – Your New Year’s Sexual-Identity Quiz

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

ThinkProgress is reporting: “CNN’s planning a 2020 LGBTQ forum. Here are some issues advocates say the candidates should address.”

“High on the list: Reversing the ban on transgender troops and addressing the plight of LGBTQ people of color.”

Well, isn’t that special. Let’s see if we can pigeon-hole everyone in America, so we all have our very own “gender” classification. That would be great.

But, if I were one who belonged to the “perpetually offended” club, I would feel … well, offended.

And just why would I feel this way? Well, thinking like a leftist, the term LGBTQ itself is too constraining. It leaves out so many new and (self) important gender classifications. And frankly, I’m surprised at the callousness of ThinkProgress and CNN for not acknowledging this. read more

WND Exclusive – Democrats’ Impeachment Roe v. Wade

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Here’s an odd question.

What do abortion and impeachment have in common?

Both are supposed safe and quite infrequently utilized.

Isn’t this what the left has been preaching to us since Roe v. Wade – that abortions should be safe and RARE?

I don’t know if “safe” applies to impeachment – probably not – but for sure, both should be rare.

But like abortions, I fear that the Democrats have opened yet another Pandora’s box.

The original “sales” pitch for legalized abortions was that they were meant to be rare. read more

WND Exclusive – It’s up to the Senate to expose the real criminals & swamp rats

from Brent Smith for World net Daily:

Please don’t do this, Mitch!

Rush Limbaugh reported this week that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell might not even put the Senate impeachment trial to a vote – that he may just dismiss the whole thing as the sham that it is and not waste any time on it. The other option McConnell he is said to be considering is to have a lightning fast trial and move for acquittal.

Don’t do it, Mitch! Don’t do what Republicans are known for – taking the easy way out.

I know this is the conventional wisdom. I understand that completely. From an emotional standpoint, we are all so disappointed and angered by the attempts to railroad the president that we just want it all to go away.

But this would be a big mistake. read more

WND Exclusive – Take a toke, man – your town needs the tax money

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

There are some odd things going on in our country lately.

Yes, I know that’s a silly open-ended statement and could refer to just about anything these days. But I’m talking about the seeming disconnect between states and the federal government. Or more specifically, the disconnect between state and federal laws.

In this case, the disconnect between federal marijuana laws and that of the states.

Marijuana is considered an illegal substance by the feds, yet at least 11 states have legalized its purchase and consumption – either strictly medically and/or for recreational use.

The United States Constitution is unmistakably clear concerning the relationship of federal and state law.

Article VI, Section 2, states: read more

WND Exclusive – Another Emasculated Young Man Commits Suicide

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Alexander Urtula and Inyoung You

Personal responsibility means being accountable for your actions. It’s not about deflecting, or blaming others.

But it seems that far too many do just that these days.

When we were young children, it was easy to deflect blame to a sibling. “He or she told me to do it, or made me do it” – whatever “it” happened to be at the time.

Parents, however, if they were any good, wouldn’t let us get away with it. They would come back with, “Well, if he or she told you to jump off a bridge, you would do it?”

Of course, the answer would be no, and their point made. read more

WND Exclusive – A look back at Benghazi

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

On Monday, during his radio program, Rush Limbaugh was speaking about documented proof Tom Fitton at Judicial Watch had uncovered. It was concerning the infamous Benghazi attack on our embassy and murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Ty Woods and Glen Doherty.

Can you believe it’s been seven years?!

Here’s what he said:

RUSH: Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch, with a tweet this morning. Quote: “BIG ARMS SCANDAL: Smoking gun docs uncovered by @JudicialWatch show Obama/Clinton aware arms going to Syria through Benghazi; warned about rise of ISIS, and were supporting terrorists in Syria. Obama/Clinton created Syria mess for @RealDonaldTrump.”

WND Exclusive – The Warren Wealth Tax is Nothing New

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Those who back the notion that Elizabeth Warren’s wealth tax is a great idea have given it little to no thought.

The Warren wealth tax is tailor-made to cater to the angry “income inequality” crowd on the left, because when people think of a wealth tax they think of a tax only on the wealthy – a “soak the rich” tax.

Warren’s wealth tax can also be thought of as a veiled property tax. read more
