WND Exclusive – THE POLITICIZATION OF HURRICANE MARIA

On Aug. 28, 2018, the Atlantic published a piece declaring: “A Year After Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico Finally Knows How Many People Died.”

The subtitle adds: “A new, definitive study from George Washington University finds that almost 3,000 people lost their lives – and highlights the government’s failures before and after the storm.”

No bias there, right?. But to which government are they referring? Well, since the Atlantic.com leans decidedly left, we can guess which government, or more succinctly, which administration.

But what should first jump off the page is that GW University had to do a study to determine the figure. And the figure is deceiving at best. President Trump is correct to discount the 3,000 person mark. read more

WND Exclusive – Why’s the Right Taking ‘Insider’ Op-Ed Seriously?

We all know of the Big Bang Theory, where in an instant the universe exploded into life and is apparently ever-expanding.

Well, with the confluence of the smash hit book by Bob Woodward and the anonymous White House insider memo hitting at virtually the same time, the left and Never-Trumpers are hoping that this is the ever-expanding political Big Bang that will finally bring down Trump.

I say smash hit book because whether Woodward’s book (release date – Sept. 11, 2018) is great or not, rest assured it will be a runaway best-seller. They will make sure of that.

However, in recent years the Big Bang Theory has been called into question. Did it actually happen, and is the universe really expanding? That’s above my pay-grade, as it were. read more

WND Exclusive – California’s Next Stupid Idea: 100% Clean Energy

Let’s pass a federal law to end all poverty by the year 2040. That will fix everything.

Oh wait – we already have hundreds of laws attempting to eradicate poverty that were instituted several decades ago. Funny thing – we still have poverty, and at about the same percentage as when the war on poverty began over a half a century ago.

It’s a clear example of the fact just because the government passes a law, it doesn’t magically make it so.

But that’s what leftists do. They see a perceived problem, which usually isn’t, and then set about to pass a law or regulatory mandate to “fix” a problem that isn’t. read more

WND Exclusive – Left is Apoplectic over Revoking of Brennan’s Security Clearance

The left is in meltdown over president Trump exercising his constitutional authority to revoke ex-CIA Chief John Brennan’s security clearance.

CNN reported that former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper was incensed by Trump’s action. Naturally it was CNN who reported it. After all, Clapper is one of their employees, as are a number of other Obama ex-intelligence hacks. read more

WND Exclusive – Trump Slaps Down Brennan, the Left Goes Apoplectic

The left is in meltdown over President Trump exercising his constitutional authority to revoke ex-CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance.

CNN reported that former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper was incensed by Trump’s action. Naturally, it was CNN who reported it. After all, Clapper is one of their employees, as are a number of other Obama ex-intelligence hacks.

In a July interview, Clapper said he thought he and his fellow leftists were being targeted by Trump. “The bigger issue to me is the jeopardy to First Amendment rights,” Clapper said. “That, to me, is the much bigger issue here where we’re being suppressed or oppressed because of our outspoken political views or criticism of the current president.” read more

WND Exclusive – CHICAGO IS A GANG-BANGER’S PARADISE

The Chicago Tribune reported that a man, “who lives on the West side of Union Avenue,” in Chicago was awaken by gun fire. It was around 2 a.m., when along with what he described as seven or eight shots, he also heard doors slamming and the screeching of tires.

What he heard was the attempted murder of a 31-year-old female trying to escape a situation in her GMC Yukon. She was shot in the head as she tried to speed away. The woman was taken to “University of Chicago Medical center, where she was in critical condition Wednesday morning.”

Oh, you must have thought I was reporting on one of the 74 weekend shootings in the Windy City this past weekend. No. This was one of the additional 16 shootings, including seven more murders committed from Monday to Wednesday, making a five-day total of 90 shootings and 19 murders. read more

WND Exclusive – 3D-Gun Blueprints: A Crisis the left Just Can’t Waste

Those who feel it’s perfectly appropriate to pass legislation to make it “unlawful for any person to publish” the blueprints to a 3D-printed handgun-looking thing clearly do not understand the Constitution or the progressive nature of legal or legislative precedent.

Utah Sen. Mike Lee appears to be the only one on Capitol Hill who does. Or he is at least the only one with the courage to say so out loud. read more

WND Exclusive – Why Today’s ‘Democratic Socialism’ is a Myth

Everywhere you look there is something pertaining to the rise of socialism in this country, assuming you’re a political geek like me. It’s surreal. Understandable, but still surreal.

Many of the younger generation have been convinced that unjust economic inequality is rampant in this country. They’ve been conditioned that one must attend college to achieve anything – and not just any college. One must attend the most elite, and therefore most expensive, university they are able. The debt consequences of this are devastating to many. read more

WND Exclusive – UBI? UNIVERSAL BASIC IDIOCY

Forget welfare. Food stamps are so yesterday. The latest rage amongst the socialist political set is Universal Basic Income, or UBI.

Ever since the subject was broached by Mark Zuckerberg in his Harvard commencement speech, leftists have flocked to the idea like, well, you know.

The Times adds that, “Chicago’s position at the bottom of the ranking is no surprise to anyone who follows municipal finance. The Windy City has become a poster child for financial mismanagement, having suffered a series of ratings downgrades in recent years. Aside from having thin reserves and large volumes of outstanding debt, Chicago is notorious for its underfunded pension plans.” read more

WND Exclusive – How the Founders Failed to Prevent Judicial Activism

Dan “bag-a-donuts” Bongino was filling in on the Mark Levin radio program this past Wednesday. For those unfamiliar, bag-a-donuts is Dan’s “catch phrase.” He uses it to describe the “everyman.”

I love this guy, because he is the everyman. He’s smart but plainspoken, like a lot of us.

He was speaking of his confusion regarding the left. They claim, he says, to be so concerned that if Judge Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court, Roe v Wade instantly will be overturned – like the next day or something.

And Dan asks, if the left really thinks abortion on demand is settled law, why should they worry? read more
