Podcast – Vote Buying 2020 Style

by: Brent Smith

Just how much will buy your vote in 2020? How much is your vote worth? Is it as little as $10, a small bottle of liquor, or a tank of gas?

Maybe you feel your vote is worth much more. I mean – buying and selling votes is a form of voter fraud and is illegal, so if your going to sell your vote, it had better be worth it?

Certainly if someone were to offer to pay off your mortgage, that would do it. Maybe that’s a bit extravagant. So maybe pay off your car loan, or maybe, just maybe, a candidate or two might say, “vote for me and I’ll pay off your student loan debt?”

Gee, is anyone saying such a thing?

Is this then not just vote buying? read more

WND Exclusive – Elizabeth ‘Woodrow’ Warren: The Scariest Candidate

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Woodrow Wilson

Elizabeth Warren

Of the top tier of candidates vying for the Democratic nomination for president, one may be scarier than the others, and it may not be who you think.

A month or so ago, I wrote that Kamala Harris was rapidly gaining ground, and I thought that she, as a black women, might pose the most problems for Trump.

This may still be true, but it’s not the purpose of this article.

Rather than just speculating on just who might win, I wanted to take a look at who may be the worst, most dangerous choice as president from the left – not who can likely beat Trump, just who would be the most damaging, should he or she win. read more

Video Podcast – Climate Change Virtue Signalers – Michelle for POTUS

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Hot Air writes: “What do former President Barack Obama, Prince Harry, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Katy Perry have in common? All of them are famous, extremely wealthy, and environmental scolds. They talk a big game about saving the planet and fighting global warming but then they travel to Google Camp and just like that, their hypocrisy is exposed.”

Yes – climate change virtue signalers show up at the lavish Google Camp in private jets and mega-yachts to discuss how the rest of us should be more responsible, yet can’t seem to see the irony in their own actions.

Michael Moore says Michelle Obama should run for President. I beg to differ. I discuss that whether she should or not is immaterial. She won’t run and I’ll explain why. read more

South Bend Looking More Like South Chicago Under Buttigieg

from the Washington Free Beacon:

South Bend’s Violent Crime Continues to Skyrocket Under Buttigieg

Violent crime has risen year-on-year since Buttigieg took office

South Bend, Indiana, has seen a dramatic increase in violent crime since Mayor Pete Buttigieg took office 2012, raising doubts about his ability to govern the city of 100,000.

Despite multiple promises and data-driven solutions from Buttigieg, a comprehensive look at South Bend’s official crime data reveals a systemic problem throughout his tenure. Data submitted by the South Bend police department to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting system are available through 2017; figures on 2018 and the first four months of 2019 were released in the public minutes of the South Bend Board of Public Safety meeting.* read more

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

WND Exclusive – Cory Booker Out-Lefts the Rest on Gun Control

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Another hard-left presidential candidate has announced a number of whacky gun control measures. Cory Booker, former virtue signaling mayor of Newark and boyfriend of radical leftist actress and activist Rosario Dawson, has joined another non-viable candidate, Eric Swalwell, in setting gun control as a major platform agenda.

Swalwell wishes to ban, “hand-held weapons of war. We should ban possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons, we should buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the law, and we should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons.” He also claims that, “Our courts haven’t found a constitutional right to have assault weapons, anyway.”

What do you even say to something that inane? read more

Joe Biden’s Apology Tour Begins with a History Rewrite

from the Federalist:

Joe Biden Should Apologize To Clarence Thomas, Not To Anita Hill

History becomes myth, myths become legends, and legends become unquestionable. And if a biased media is writing the story, even dubious tales can turn into unassailable “fact” with the right combination of narrative and time. This has been the case with Anita Hill.

Hill’s testimony alleging that Clarence Thomas, then a nominee for the Supreme Court, repeatedly harassed her in the workplace made for explosive politics back in 1991. It’s reemerging as an issue in 2019 thanks to the new presidential candidacy of Joe Biden. As senator, Biden chaired the Judiciary Committee, and in the eyes of the Democratic voters he hopes to court, he permitted too many tough questions attempting to ascertain the truth from Hill. read more

Dems Not to Lose Strategy is a sure fire Win for Trump

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

A couple of days ago I ran across an article on the Atlantic website entitled, “How Not to Lose to Donald Trump,” by none other than Rahm Emanuel, current Mayor of Chicago, and former Chief of Staff/Consigliere to then president Barack Obama.

He is famous, or infamous, for the saying, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. … This crisis provides the opportunity for us to do things that you could not before.”

And this, of course, goes for real and imagined or fabricated crises.

But coming from someone like Emanuel, I thought this strategy odd, that he would play not to lose instead of playing to win.

From the get-go, my first reaction was football. read more

Obama’s 2008 Platform Would be Rejected by Dems Today

from IBD:

Would Barack Obama Be Too Conservative For Today’s Democrats?

When Bernie Sanders announced on Tuesday that he was running for president, the only surprising thing was how much competition he’ll have on the far left. The current crop of 2020 candidates is so liberal, in fact, that it makes the Barack Obama of 2008 look positively right wing.

When Obama first ran, he tried to position himself as something of a fiscal moderate.

Obama complained about “the orgy of spending” under President George W. Bush. He pledged that all his spending plans were more than offset with spending cuts.

“What I’ve done throughout this campaign is to propose a net spending cut,” he said. read more

WND Exclusive – 2020 Dems Must Lurch Left or Suffer Radicals’ Rage

by: Brent Smith for World Net Daily

Most everyone is familiar with the party game limbo and the saying oft repeated while playing it: “How low can you go?”

Well, there’s another saying that will be repeated quite often over the next couple of years having to with Democratic candidates vying for their party’s presidential nomination: “How far left will you go?”

It’s only been a little over a week since the midterms, and already dozens of Dems are lining up en masse, showing at least some interest in running for president. I recently saw a collage of faces of those who are supposedly interested. There were upwards of three dozen.

Most will choose not to run, but of the dozen or so who wish to, they are going to have to throw out any thought of reason and common sense to win the day with their increasingly radical base. read more
