BOEING

The U.S. Navy has awarded a contract to Boeing for four Extra-Large Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (XLUUVs). In other words: giant drone subs.

The unmanned submarines, called Orcas, will be able to undertake missions from scouting to sinking ships at very long ranges. Drone ships like the Orca will revolutionize war at sea, providing inexpensive, semi-disposable weapon systems that can fill the gaps in the front line—or simply go where it’s too dangerous for manned ships to go. read more

On Spending – the Republicans are the Democrats

Fiscally speaking, we conservatives have for years been saying there’s not a dime’s difference between the two parties. Well, here’s further proof.

from Conservative Review:

The bipartisan spending binge is now worse than under Bush and Obama

We’re now $22 trillion in debt, yet despite all that red ink, the Mexican cartels have control of our border and we’re not one bit closer to spending money on our own security. We’ve gone into deep debt for everything except the core function of the federal government. read more

In an incredible milestone, scientists have for the first time created “universal” stem cells by using CRISPR gene-editing technology to produce pluripotent stem cells that can be transplanted into any patient without generating an immune system response. read more

False Attack Claims Caused by Trump Derangement

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version

When was the last time one, two, three, or however many Trump supporters attacked a black, a gay, lesbian, transgender man, woman or otherwise?

Let me think about it? Oh that’s right … almost never! However, the list of attacks on Trump supporters by wacky leftists is almost endless.

For sure, there are idiots on the right, but the overwhelming majority of attacks by supposed Trump supporters on innocent blacks, gays, Muslims, etc. turn out to be hoaxes.

There have been attacks, or those conspiring to do so, who claim to be Trump supporters. But when we look into the background of these supposed supporters, we find that they were unhinged prior to Trump and in fact just bought into the false narrative of the president which has pushed by the liberal press for years now – that Trump is a racist, homophobic, anti-Muslim bigot. And so, if you are a racist, homophobic, anti-Muslim bigot, he’s the man for you, or some such nonsense.

Of course Trump is none of those things. read more

WND Exclusive – DEMOCRATS’ SEMANTIC ABSURDITY OVER BORDER WALL

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Words mean things. And to Democrats, words are the only thing, which is why they are literally tying themselves in semantic

knots over the southern border.

Image result for semantics

A few weeks ago, McClatchy News wrote, “There’s a strong constituency among Democrats for border barriers. Just don’t call it a concrete wall. While Democrats will not specify what they might propose next, one big clue came from [James] Clyburn [D-S.C.], a close Pelosi ally. Semantics matter, which is why he’s calling enhanced security a ‘smart wall.’” read more

Video Podcast – Let’s Talk National Emergencies

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

According to the Federal Register, 58 national emergencies have been declared since the National Emergency Act of 1976 was signed into law by President Gerald Ford.

And 31 have been annually renewed and are currently still in effect, as listed in the Federal Register.

I discuss the latest emergency act that president Trump recently declared, comparing it to others declared by four previous presidents. read more

Enough Crying Over a National Emergency

Please – enough crying over the use of the National Emergencies Act. As you read this, keep in mind that are are no fewer than 31 “National Emergencies” that have been declared by various presidents over the years that are STILL in effect today. Of course no one who is opposed to Trump’s declaration will ever divulge this information.

There are no two people on this planet whom I’m trust more regarding the Constitution and what is constitutional than Mark Levin and Senator Mike Lee. Both of these constitutional heavy-weights say that the president is acting constitutionally by declaring this national emergency. That’s all I need to know. And another little secret is that each must renewed every year.

from the Conservative Review:

The mainstream media has begun its ritual of hysteria in response to President Trump’s intention to declare a national emergency on the southern border to appropriate military funding to build the wall. A headline from NBC News declares Trump is “forcing a constitutional crisis.” Even some Republican senators are saying the president shouldn’t declare a national emergency.

In a Facebook noteLevinTV host Mark Levin tears that argument apart: read more
