WND Exclusive – How Trump can help more people dump the Democrats

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

A guy called into Rush Limbaugh this past Tuesday. He was a retired college professor who is done with the Democrats. He voted Democrat his entire life until 2016 when he pulled the lever for Trump.

Basically, he wised up to the lies of the Democratic Party and became a conservative. And unlike some Republicans, he liked the way Trump fought back against the left and threw it right back at them.

He said he was definitely done with the lying Democrats, but he also voiced his frustration with Trump, which Rush didn’t seem to understand. Well, I for one understood exactly what the professor meant, because it’s the same way many conservatives feel. read more

Trump Campaign Hit With Hyperinflation

from The Washington Free Beacon:

City Charges Trump $500K, Obama $20K For Rally Security

President Donald Trump’s campaign is threatening a lawsuit after Minneapolis city leaders charged it $530,000 for security at an event scheduled for Thursday—26 times the amount it billed former president Barack Obama for a 2009 rally.

Mayor Jacob Frey said in September that Trump’s behavior is “reprehensible” and that his “message of hatred will never be welcome in Minneapolis,” according to the Star Tribune. The Trump campaign accused Frey of “abusing the power of his office” and “conjuring a phony and outlandish bill for security.” read more

Lawrence O’Donnell – No Regard for the Truth

NEWSFLASH: MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell was once a border patrol agent who was known to abuse undocumented

Yeah … I Wish!

immigrants!

This is a bold-faced lie that I just made up, and I’m admitting immediately, which is more than I can say for the claims made by Lawrence O’Donnell himself, regarding President Trump. This, among a million other reasons, is why I could not be employed by leftist “news” outlets like MSNBC.

But see how easy it is? Just make crap up and put it out there, knowing that in most cases, others will provide cover and maybe even advance the lie, via Twitter or other social media venue.

Reporting is dead and buried at these leftist cable outlets. It is all nothing but 24/7, anti-Trump, agenda-driven fabrications. And unless someone calls them on their lies, they will not retract or admit the fabrication.

from the Blaze:

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell claims President Trump co-signed loans with Russian oligarchs — then admits he has no proof

His own network was unable to confirm his story

UPDATE: at 4:10 p.m. ET Wednesday: MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell has issued a tweet retracting his claim that President Donald Trump co-signed loans with Russian oligarchs. O’Donnell called his own reporting “an error in judgment” and apologized for not going through his network’s “rigorous verification and standards process.”

“I shouldn’t have reported it and I was wrong to discuss it on the air,” he admitted. “I will address the issue on my show tonight. read more

WND Exclusive – How the ‘Squad’ actually benefits America

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Many on the right and left wish to see “The Squad” just go away. They’re hoping that these radicals – Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley – are all defeated in the next election.

But I tend to agree with President Trump. Give them a soap box and a microphone, and allow them to spout their radical leftist nonsense all they like. Allow them the opportunity to continue to drag the Democratic Party further left, while driving the likes of Nancy Pelosi and the old-guard leadership nuts.

As they force the left further toward communism, even liberals, who just a few years ago we classified as leftist, appear almost reasonable – at least at times, and relative to this new crop. read more

Don’t Cave on the Constitution

The beginning of the end of the Second Amendment

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

I agree with the President on most things, but I can’t on this.

We’ve been hearing, ad nauseum, that polling suggests that the public supports universal background checks and greater gun restrictions. And we’ve not only been hearing this from democrats, but also from Republicans.

So now I guess we’ve given up on protection and defense of the Constitution and will be governed by the whims of the people and politicians?

It reminds of what the father of the modern progressive movement, president Woodrow Wilson said.  (I hate that guy!) “The Constitution was founded on the law of gravitation. The government was to exist and move by virtue of the efficacy of ‘checks and balances.’ The trouble with the theory is that government is not a machine, but a living thing. No living thing can have its organs offset against each other, as checks, and live.”

This was the beginning of the “living, breathing,” Constitution. That musty old document was fine for its day, but it should not have been built on immovable bedrock. Instead it should be built on sand so that it may move and shift with the changing times.

President Trump and the Republicans have expressed openness to a federal red flag law and for “meaningful” background checks. read more

Please Mr. President – Don’t Support Red Flag Laws

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Please Mr. President – reconsider. Don’t do this. Please stop pushing Red Flag legislation.

Oh, like taxes, or frankly any law that deals directly with the people, they all start out, as does this suggestion from the President, fairly innocuously and backed with the best of intentions – at least outwardly.

But as Will Rogers said: “The difference between death and taxes is death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets.”

And ole Will’s saying doesn’t just apply to taxes. It applies to virtually all laws and all regulations.

Take the income tax … Please! Just kidding.

Seriously, in 1913, the first year of the income tax, the top tax bracket was 7 percent (and that included a six percent surtax) on all income over $500,000 ($11 million in today’s dollars), and the lowest tax bracket was 1 percent.

And of course promises were made by our benevolent government overlords prior to its introduction, that tax rates wouldn’t just be continually raised.

Raise rates? Don’t be silly. We’re the government. You can trust us – right? read more

If You Criticize the Media, You’ll be Told to Leave

from Huma Events:

That Time The Media Told Solzhenitsyn To Love It Or Leave It.

Last week, President Trump suggested that a few particularly acerbic critics of his immigration policies should pack up and leave. For that, he was branded a racist.

What’s really going on here?

“The press has become the greatest power within the Western countries, more powerful than the legislature, the executive and the judiciary. One would then like to ask: by what law has it been elected and to whom is it responsible?”

In 1978, the great Russian writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn was invited to give the commencement address at Harvard University.

In his speech, the exiled dissident harshly criticized Western news reporting for endorsing “fashionable trends of thought and ideas” while suppressing “independent-minded people from giving their contribution to public life.” read more

We Could Learn from Trump’s Dealing with the Marxist Four

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Everyone is talking about what a bully Donald Trump is to the poor female congress people of color. Oh the hand-wringing by the left and the spineless establishment right. I can still hear the echoes of the tisk-tisk of utter disappointment and disapproval from the likes of Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo at CNN, as the sophomoric left opines about civility and restraint. They never practice it. They just preach to us about it.

There they were – four patriotic American congresswomen, just minding their own business, talking about normal stuff that Americans talk about. You know, like how our border agents are monsters who torture innocent immigrants by making them sleep in cages and drink out of toilets. And generally how crappy America is and how poorly people of color, especially women are treated.

And they would sure know – all four – AOC, Omar, Tlaib and Pressley, being “of color.” And all four, being so oppressed and all, only managed to make it to the third highest elected office in the entire nation. The Senate and the Presidency are the only offices to eclipse them. read more

What’s Good for the Prez, is Good for the Radical

A three judge panel of the 2nd district Court of Appeals upheld a lower court ruling that President Trump cannot block his Twitter followers just because they post critical or divisive comments. I agree. The president uses his @RealDonaldTrump account for public and policy statements – not just for personal issues as a private citizen. As he uses this public forum for government business, blocking the public would be in violation of the followers’ First Amendment rights.

That being “settled,” it will be interesting if leftist radical Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is treated the same, as a lawsuit was recently filed to force AOC to unblock those who have been critical of her.

Video Podcast – Trump Must Put the Courts in Their Place

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The other day, Daniel Horowitz of Conservative Review made a couple of great points regarding the recent supreme Court decisions.

It was regarding both the DACA non-decision and the census decision.

Neither of these “cases” should involve the courts at any level, much less the supreme Court.

I discuss why both should be decided by only the Executive branch, with no inputs from the courts, and little, if any input from even the Legislative branch. read more
