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

WND Exclusive – There’s Only 1 Choice for Supreme Court Justice

The problem a president has with any court nominee is transparency. Until your choice actually begins ruling on cases, you can never be sure he or she was what you imagined them to be. By that time, as we know, it’s too late. As these are lifetime appointments, he and we are stuck with them, many times suffering disastrous consequences of a wrong choice.

Recent history is replete with Republican “wrong” choices, from David Souter to John Paul Stevens, Sandra Day O’Connor and, of course, Mr. swing-vote, Anthony Kennedy.

We cannot afford to replace Anthony Kennedy with another Anthony Kennedy, or worse. read more

WND Exclusive – A Prediction about Trump’s Order on Alien Families

Andrew Klavan of the Daily Wire made the point, when he replayed a portion of a Chuck Schumer Senate chamber speech, that it sounds like the minority leader wants Trump to become king and just make and rescind laws with the stroke of his pen.

WND Exclusive – TRUMP’S DIPLOMACY: SMACK-EM DOWN, BUTTER-EM UP – And it Works

President Trump is once again being pilloried in the press for what Yahoo News calls, “an ‘astonishing’ concession to Kim Jong-un and North Korea.” What a surprise.

Trump’s comments, they write, “sent shudders through the already shaky architecture of military alliances that undergird U.S. global power. Abandoning joint military exercises will immediately begin to degrade the readiness and deterrent posture of the 32,000 U.S. troops in South Korea, military experts say.”

May I ask what military alliances undergird U.S. global power? Without the U.S., there is no global power. How many nations across the globe depend upon the mighty United States military to protect them? And how many do we rely on to protect us? read more

WND Exclusive – THE SUPREME COURT’S INDECISIVE DECISION

Now that all the talking heads and other experts have weighed in on the recent Supreme Court decision – let me add my two cents.

The U.S. supreme Court handed down a rather limp decision this week in the case Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

The justices decided, in a 7-2 decision, that, “a Christian baker didn’t get a fair hearing before a state civil-rights commission and therefore shouldn’t be penalized for turning away a same-sex couple.” So writes the Wall Street Journal. read more
