WND Exclusive – Will NFL be Sanitized Out of Existence?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

If you are a regular reader, you know I am a huge NFL fan and a diehard New England Patriots fan. And to all the haters out there, I was a fan before the start of the dynasty years – although it’s difficult to remember that far back!

I’m not here to gloat – but rather to lament the problem in the NFL – and that is safety, or more precisely, trying to regulate the violence out a violent game.

Now, politically speaking – I’m disappointed, but not surprised. A lot of NFL team owners are left-leaning as are many at the league office and players. They also have a tendency to be spineless and therefore bow to every “we have to do something” mantra. So wanting to regulate human behavior isn’t really that foreign to them. read more

WND Exclusive – Defending France from the Climate Crisis Kids

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

The Golden Child of the current climate movement, Greta Thunberg, isn’t quite finished with her 15 minutes of fame.

After her scripted diatribe at the Climate Strike, she and 15 other misguided and misinformed youth headed to the United Nations Climate Summit, where the 16, ranging from age 8 to 17, hailing from 12 different countries, proceeded to lodge, “a landmark official complaint to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child to protest lack of government action on the climate crisis.”

I’m not sure what constitutes an “official” complaint to the U.N., but I assume it’s anything that advances socialism, communism, hatred of Israel or America, and radical leftism. And the climate crisis complaint pretty much checks most categories – ergo, it’s official.

That and the kids have their own legal representation, courtesy of global law firm Hausfeld LLP and Earthjustice whose motto is … ready for it … “Because the Earth Needs a Good Lawyer!” Wonder who’s paying these two? Just asking. read more

WND Exclusive – Trump’s California Emissions Move Unconstitutional

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

We’ve all heard by now that President Trump is proposing to take away “California’s power to set its own vehicle tailpipe emissions standards, escalating an environmental dispute that has trapped auto makers in the middle.”

This move by Trump is reported to be in conjunction with a rollback of Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) Standards.

To date, all of California emission standards restrictions eclipse those of the federal government.

If you are unfamiliar, Corporate Average Fuel Economy(CAFE) Standards are regulations, first enacted by the United States Congress in 1975, after the 1973–74 Arab oil embargo, to improve the average fuel economy of cars and light trucks (trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles) produced for sale in the United States. read more

WND Exclusive – CLIMATE HYSTERICS: 120 YEARS OF HISTORY

from Brent Smith for World Net:

On Sept. 3, 2019, a group of 16 global warming scientists/alarmists set out way up north to the Barents and Greenland Sea, to prove that Arctic ice is indeed melting and that we’ll all be underwater soon.

Their fate was the same as their brethren a few years ago near the South Pole. They got hopelessly stuck in massive amounts of ever-increasing ice and had to be extracted. They failed to prove their point.

Perhaps the brainwashed alarmists should look back in history to see that warming and cooling cycles are natural and happen all the time.

In fact, the press has documented four of these cycles just in the past 120 years or so. And during every cycle, just as today, the results were to be cataclysmic.

I’ve found that these cycles last roughly between 30 and 40 years. read more

WND Exclusive – 1 Fewer Walmart Customers

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

As a rule, I don’t call for mass boycotts. You’ll never see me on social media calling out some business I feel has somehow wronged me and soliciting others to protest or stop patronizing XYZ Inc.

But I’m making an exception in the case of Walmart.

Normally, I just don’t feel that strongly about these types of things. Businesses I choose to patronize is personal, and my idea of a boycott is to just halt my patronage – either permanently or until the store or chain in question rectifies the situation to my satisfaction.

Last year, because of Target stores’ new “trans policy,” which allows men who dress up as women to use the women’s changing rooms, I decided never to darken the door of another Target. I thought it ridiculous for a major chain store to cave to a radical fringe element that encompasses a fraction of a fraction of our population. That, and the whole transgender thing is crock.

But Target is a private company, and if its powers-that-be decide to kowtow to every whacky group out there, it’s their decision. read more

WND Exclusive – The Myth of Poverty in America

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Bernie Sanders says, “If I’m not mistaken, China has made more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any other country in the history of civilization. They’ve done a lot of things for their people.”

Yes they have, unless you are one of “their people” who just happens to be part of the Chinese Muslim community, for example, or not part of the Maoist cultural revolution, which killed an estimated 20-45 million.

But what should we expect from Bernie the Red? This is the same guy who trumpeted the Cuban Communist health-care system. 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

WND Exclusive – Elizabeth ‘Woodrow’ Warren: The Scariest Candidate

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Woodrow Wilson

Elizabeth Warren

Of the top tier of candidates vying for the Democratic nomination for president, one may be scarier than the others, and it may not be who you think.

A month or so ago, I wrote that Kamala Harris was rapidly gaining ground, and I thought that she, as a black women, might pose the most problems for Trump.

This may still be true, but it’s not the purpose of this article.

Rather than just speculating on just who might win, I wanted to take a look at who may be the worst, most dangerous choice as president from the left – not who can likely beat Trump, just who would be the most damaging, should he or she win. read more

Very Few Mass Shooters are White Nationalists

by: Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

And frankly, very few mass-shooters are even white.

Still, leftist media outlets are happy to speak of the number of mass shootings in America. And they are particularly happy to speak, in detail, of mass shootings they can pin on white nationalists, or frankly any white shooter.

And why? Well, two reasons. Their hatred of guns and their disdain for President Trump.

Most will be shocked to hear that in 2019, the number of mass shootings already ranges from 200 to 255 nationwide. According to HuffPost, “the grim tally now stands at 255.” I won’t dispute the accuracy of this claim here. read more

WND Exclusive – What comes after ‘Medicare for All’?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

According to leading polls of Democratic primary voters, health care is still one the top issues. And it took center stage, as a new human right, by means of the new progressive socialist tag-team, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, during Tuesday’s Democratic debate.

On night 2, there was not the unbridled enthusiasm for the Sanders-Warren Medicare for All scheme, as Joe Biden threw cold water on it and defended Obamacare. But he appears to be one of only a few. To many of the rest, it’s like Obamacare never existed – like it had no positive effect on “health care” at all.

It didn’t, by the way.

And here we are today. It’s déjà-vu all over again (h/t: Yogi Berra). Almost a decade after Obamacare was signed into law, the issue is still front and center. read more
