WND Exclusive – IS DESPOTISM IN OUR FUTURE?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Other than Uncle Joe Biden, it seems that every other presidential candidate has crossed over from being liberal to full-blown socialist. And many on the right are surprised at this. Many seem surprised at how fast we are descending from a free and liberty-loving society to one that gives every appearance of emulating Venezuela.

But that could never happen here – right? Of course not – although not too long ago Venezuela was one of the most prosperous nations on Earth. But hey, as the saying goes: they just haven’t done socialism right. Seems no one has.

For years, we conservatives complained about Obama, saying that he was a lawless president, he was despotic, that we’ve never seen anyone like him. How did he ever get elected? read more

WND Exclusive – WHAT ABOUT AMENDING THE 2ND AMENDMENT?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

The Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution to prevent government infringement on our natural rights as Americans. It was designed to prevent government the ability to bestow and therefore rescind the rights of the individual.

To that, there was an interesting and thought-provoking article in the Washington Post recently. I’m not sure I’ve ever uttered those words in the same sentence: thought-provoking and Washington Post.

As I rarely peruse the pages of the Post, I must thank Jazz Shaw at HotAir.com for bringing it to our attention. read more

WND Exclusive – What about the Sea Turtles’ ‘Reproductive Rights’?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Sea turtles, and their eggs and hatchlings, are protected in Florida by some very strict laws and regulations. They are also protected under the 1973 federal Endangered Species Act.

Every two to four years, sea turtles make the long journey to Florida beaches to lay their eggs in the warm sand, where they are sheltered by these various laws and regulatory edicts. Simply put, one cannot possess, disturb, mutilate, destroy, sell, transfer, molest, or harass marine turtles, nests or eggs. Protection is also afforded to marine turtle habitat.

In other words, there are absolutely no exceptions to taking the life of an unborn sea turtle. read more

WND Exclusive – So Just What is a High Crime and Misdemeanor?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Libertarian Rep. Justin Amash is a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, a fiscal hawk and has a Conservative Review Liberty Score of 90, which is excellent.

So what does all this conservatism have to do with Amash’s recent call for the impeachment of President Trump? In other words, what does one have to do with the other? Well … absolutely nothing. But some “conservative” websites mean to somehow equate the two.

As a general rule, I don’t like calling out another conservative site, particularly as I often quote them. But the Washington Examiner’s piece entitled, “Get mad at Justin Amash all you want, but he’s still the biggest fiscal conservative,” tries to do just that. read more

WND Exclusive – Justice Kavanaugh Will Only Drift Left From Here

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

I can’t quite figure out what Rush Limbaugh is up to regarding the recent Supreme Court ruling by Justice Brett Kavanaugh. I can’t figure out whether Rush is being critical of Kavanaugh, or instead trying to give a veiled excuse for his recent siding with the anti-constitutionalists on the court.

Normally, it’s easy to know exactly where Rush stands on any topic or event. It’s easy because he’s so predictably conservative and constitutional.

But Limbaugh has been noticeably different since Trump was elected. Although there is no doubt of Trump’s love of country and his desire to put America first, it’s also common knowledge that he is not an ideological conservative or advocate for small, limited and less expensive government. He just wants the U.S. citizen to get their money’s worth. This is and will continue to be a bone of contention for us constitutionalists. 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

WND Exclusive – VENEZUELA: REPLACING 1 SOCIALIST WITH ANOTHER

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

What should we make of the situation in Venezuela? Is this really something the United States should be involved in, or is it just another in a string of American buttinskies, injecting ourselves into a nation’s internal struggle?

While many on the right are cheering the most recent coup attempt to overthrow the current Thug-in-Chief, Nicholas Maduro, by Juan Guaidó, I’m beginning to wonder if it’s just another case of replacing the devil we know with the devil we don’t. read more

WND Exclusive – Will Michelle be the Belle of the Democratic Field?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

A few days ago, Rush Limbaugh, on his radio program, was discussing a theory that Michelle Obama may be thinking about throwing her hat into the presidential ring. He discussed how it might happen and why.

Personally, I don’t think there’s any way this will happen. I’ll give a quick thought on this later in the column.

But I’d rather speak of the few current front-runners – Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. All have issues that should disqualify them from even consideration by the leftist base. Yet it continues to be a fascination how the democrats are so easily able to suspend their own identity politics and support two old white guys and the descendant of a slave owner. read more

WND Exclusive – Should We Ban Dems from Speaking on 2nd Amendment?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

California representative Eric Swalwell is the latest empty suit to enter the presidential sweepstakes on the democrat side.

He evidently intends to make gun control – or rather, gun confiscation – his Numero Uno campaign agenda issue.

Last year Swalwell wrote: “An assault weapon, then, is a hand-held weapon of war, capable of spraying a crowd with more lethal fire in seconds. 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. The ban would not apply to law enforcement agencies or shooting clubs.” read more

WND Exclusive – The Party of White Nationalism: Not the GOP

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

American history is replete with examples of white extremism and white nationalism. That’s an irrefutable fact.

Unfortunately, that history was long ago rewritten by the very party that rails against it now. And to call it a mere whitewashing of history is a severe understatement.

The party of white extremism, racism, bigotry and white nationalism, the Democrats, has all but erased the evils committed by the real villains, successfully offloading their turpitude onto an unsuspecting party, the Republicans, who stood for diversity, integration and tolerance.

This was on full display at a recent sham of a Democrat-controlled House Judiciary Committee hearing on – what else? – the threat of white supremacy in America.

Of course, as are all things in Congress today, this ‘hearing” was designed for one purpose: to get Trump – to paint him, and anyone who supports him, as nothing more than a racist white supremacist. Or, if you’re a black conservative, an Uncle Tom. read more
