from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
We have a rather odd opportunity this election season with up to four scenarios to consider, as I see things.
Unfortunately, none of our options is great.
First option is that Donald Trump wins the presidency, the Republicans retain the Senate, and the Democrats keep the House. In other words, status quo.
Second option is Trump wins, but the Senate is lost to the Dems, and the Dems retain the House.
Third option is that Trump loses, but Republicans retain the Senate, Dems retain the House.
And the fourth, what conservatives fear the most and what I will concentrate on, is Trump loses, the Dems also take the Senate, while retaining the House, giving them full control of government. read more

Most of us have heard and know of Alexis de Tocqueville, the famous French philosopher and political theorist and author of “Democracy in America.”
During his time in America, in the 1830s, he made a lot of observations about our country.
Here are just two:
“There are many men of principle in both parties in America, but there is no party of principle, ” and in 1835 he said: “A decline of public morals in the United States will probably be marked by the abuse of the power of impeachment as a means of crushing political adversaries or ejecting them from office.”
And that’s we stand right now, and what I’ll be discussing. read more
There are a lot of people talking about the possibility of another American Civil War. Only this time is won’t be between the North and South.
However it will over slavery, of a sorts. If we end up in another civil war, God forbid, it will be between We the People and the Big Government Leftist entrenched Deep State.
A recent poll cited the top two reasons we may sink into civil war. They are over the Second Amendment, i.e., gun confiscation and a revocation of our natural right to own and bear arms – and impeachment of the President.
Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly recently discussed the possibility of Civil War and the reasons why: read more
Former Army Ranger John Lovell and Evan Temple of the Warrior Poet Society talk about a subject that has come up quite often recently. As the democrats ramp up their hysteria over guns, more and more are calling for confiscation.
With threats like this, the conversation can quickly turn to whether or not one might voluntarily surrender his or her weapons and then to the ultimate nightmare scenario of possible civil war in America.
They offer a great perspective. Enjoy the video: read more

The caravan of migrants continues to move toward our border. This massive mob of well-fed, well dressed, rested migrants will attempt to force their way across our border.
Progressive socialist Democrats will start whining about how these innocent migrants are so distressed, coming from countries that have treated them poorly. And celebrities will wring their hands and clutch their pearls over how poorly we are treating them.
It will not be mentioned that they are in fact economic refugees, looking for jobs and handouts to improve their lives, which is not an excuse for entering our country illegal, or even granting refugee status.
They will be here just in time for the midterms. Although the distance is far, the only time they actually walk is at the scheduled times when they know the cameras will be there. If you think about the distance already covered, you understand that they could not have possibly gotten this far without the flatbed tractor trailers and trucks that load them up and bring them closer. Mainstream media won’t mention this because it doesn’t fit the narrative that they wish to portray. read more

Many nations around the globe know nothing but civil war – where year after year one faction is conquered or deposed by another, or a minority takes up arms against the majority, or a least the present ruling party, and this guerilla warfare often goes on for years.
We see or hear of these far away places like Africa or the Middle East, and just shake our heads at how backward and uncivilized they are.
Of course we don’t have any of those petty third world type problems here in the U.S. We wouldn’t have time for such frivolous things anyway. We’re too busy tackling the important issues of the day – like trying to completely erase our history by tearing down statues and plaques that supposedly make a very select few squeamish.
We in America will not tolerate any hurt feelings. Even if those feelings are illogical and based entirely on lies and half-truths regarding these inanimate antagonists.
The inanimate objects causing the greatest consternation are the many statues of that Confederate fiend, General Robert E. Lee. He is considered a blight on America for he was willing to not just take up arms, but lead an entire army, to defend the right to own slaves, not realizing how bad it will make pampered Americans feel over 150 years later. read more

There is nothing good about slavery. Owning another human being is lower than low. I would hope we can all agree.
We on the reasonable right knew that this push to expunge slave owners from American history would not end with Civil War statues, monuments and the like. We knew these radicals wouldn’t be satisfied with just Civil War era slave holders. We knew it would rapidly jump to the Founding Fathers (as it has),– the same Founders that the progressive left has been trying to erase since the days of Woodrow Wilson.
We also know that it won’t end with the slave-owning Founders. We know that this is a means to an end. If our political leadership – locally, and at the State and Federal level, continue to capitulate to, or worse, join these ill-guided rabble-rousers, the next demand will be to insist that our founding documents are, by default, illegitimate.
If Washington, Jefferson, Madison, et al, are erased, how could the documents they created live on?
The supposed protesters don’t really care about slavery. If they did, they would be forced to take a good long look at the ideology they are promoting. Communism has enslaved many millions more people than all American slave holders/traders combined. read more

Rex Tillerson’s State Department doesn’t appear to be acting much differently than his predecessor, John F. Kerry. Like Kerry, he at least appears to also have an anti-Israel bias and worse, appears to be accepting the Muslim Brotherhood as a legitimate organization.
President Trump says he has not ruled military intervention regarding what is effectively a Venezuelan civil war. If not a civil war, certainly an internal conflict with which we have no business involving ourselves. read more
