WND Exclusive – Democrats love taxing us to death — and beyond

President Trump’s new tax proposal is pretty good. It’s not great, in the opinion of this consistent Constitutionalist, but it ain’t bad.

Naturally, the Democrats hate it. Ali Baba Schumer and his gang of thieves are using the same old tired argument, that it’s just tailored toward benefiting the rich and that “working families” will suffer should Trump triumph.

I think the last Democrat who was in favor of a tax cut was President Kennedy some 54 years ago. As much as we conservatives like to crow about the Kennedy tax plan, it wasn’t great. Oh, it sure did cut taxes, but it wasn’t what we think. read more

WND Exclusive – HAVE PAMPERED PLAYERS RUINED AMERICA’S PASTIME?

The spineless NFL has been party to its own demise for a while now. Professional football has been the pre-eminent sport in America for years, far outpacing the MLB, NHL and the NBA. It’s grown at such a pace as to cause many to believe it too big and certainly too popular to fail.

Well, it may be too big to fail completely, but popularity is a fickle mistress.

Viewership is down for a variety of reasons. Fans, particularly the younger set, are simply not watching traditional network TV.

“Americans under the age of 30 now watch almost 50 percent fewer hours of traditional TV than they did in 2010,” reports the Atlantic.

There is a dearth of heroes taking the field – many less stand-out superstars than in years gone by. They’ve been replaced with overcompensated mediocrity. read more

WND Exclusive – Can we still trust President Trump?

The nation is all a atwitter over this apparent Trump-Schumer-Pelosi triumvirate.

I was personally disappointed that Trump even met with the two dirt dealers. Nothing productive could come of it. And herein lies the problem: We don’t know what was said or agreed upon, yet everyone has an opinion – but based on what?

I suppose, we could base opinion on conjecture or “ifs,” as it were. If Trump did this, then we’re happy – if Trump did that, then we’re mad, etc. read more

WND Exclusive – The Debt-Ceiling Big Lie

By making a deal with the devil and siding with Chuck Schumer, President Trump may be lurching toward the dark side. And for what – an $8 billion disaster-relief package?

Eight billion dollars is a lot of money for the likes of us, but to the government it is nothing. They waste or misplace that amount in a week or two.

Heck, with a budget of around $4,000 billion ($4 trillion), the feds spend about $11 billion a day. We’re expected to believe that they can’t divert less than a day’s outlay to help out the truly needy – those who have lost everything in Texas and Louisiana, in some cases? Not to mention those who will surely lose everything if Irma tracks into Florida. We’re supposed to buy this load of crap? read more

WND Exclusive – What happened to the North Korean threat?

Evidently, the planet is now safe from nuclear holocaust. Just a few short weeks ago, the world as we know it was on the brink of total destruction, thanks to the incendiary language of our buffoonish president. At least this was the picture painted by the leftist press and their on-call “intelligence” experts.

So, what happened to the end of the world? It’s as if the planet were suddenly afflicted by some rare but potentially devastating disease, only to have the bug vanish as inexplicably as it arrived.

Where did the N.K. threat go? What are the odds of it returning? No one knows, or no longer seems to care – so I guess we just won’t worry about it. Anyway, we have much more important things to report, like atrocities that occurred centuries ago. In fact, the last slaves were freed 152 years ago in Galveston, Texas, by proclamation, General Order 3, delivered on June 19, 1865 – known as Juneteeth Independence Day.  read more

WND Exclusive – Mr. President, here’s what’s wrong with Strange

There are a lot of things to discuss this week, but the elephant in the room is North Korea and President Trump’s supposed reckless handling of the situation.

Since everyone and their cousin are giving their learned opinion on the matter, I have instead decided to concentrate on a topic I think Trump is in fact handling rather cavalierly. Some might even say ignorantly. This is his recent endorsement of RINO Republican candidate and current Alabama junior Sen. Luther Strange in the upcoming special election primary on Aug. 15.

Strange was appointed to keep the seat warm when Jeff Sessions became U.S. attorney general. Outsider and self-professed swamp-drainer Trump, who was elected as the “insurgent” candidate, had his choice of two other great constitutional conservative and anti-swamp candidates in Rep. Mo Brooks and Judge Roy Moore, both of whom are now running against Strange. Moore has been leading in recent polls. Both these choices are also considered to be insurgents, but Trump pulled the lever for the establishment Strange. read more

WND Exclusive – Give us your tired … tired of feudalism, socialism

By now virtually everyone with any political interest – aka us – have seen the heated exchange between Senior White House Adviser Stephen Miller and CNN’s Jim Acosta regarding immigration and the Statue of Liberty.

As has been the case recently, CNN “reporters” are sent to the White House briefings to be antagonists – not to report. Acosta clearly had no interest in acquiring any information disseminated by Miller. He was there to preach and filibuster, while always on alert for a “gotcha” moment. This is the present-day job of the liberal Washington press corps. read more

WND Exclusive – It’s over! ‘Queen of bubbleheads’ just threw Obamacare curveball

Well, it seems that the question of whether to keep Obamacare has been decided for us. The fight appears to be nearly over. Clearly we, who wished a full repeal of the U-ACA (Un-Affordable Care Act) and a return of some semblance of private health care, have lost.

Oh, I know it was an uphill battle and the weasel Republicans were bound to do exactly what they did. We all knew that. No – I’m speaking of the final nail in the repeal coffin – that Kim Kardashian has tweeted in support of both Obamacare and Planned Parenthood. read more

WND Exclusive – Does it matter what Reagan would do about Obamacare?

For the past few days I’ve seen many articles asking, “What would Reagan do about Obamacare?”

It seems the discussion’s genesis was an article written by Avik Roy for the National Review entitled, “How Would Ronald Reagan Have Replaced Obamacare?”

Although I loved President Reagan, my knee-jerk reaction was, “I don’t care.” Obamacare is unconstitutional, as would be any “replacement” plan. As much as I respected Ronald Reagan – heck, I joined the Navy in part due to Reagan being commander in chief – if he advocated for any federal involvement in the dispensation of private health insurance or health care, I know I should disagree. Of course, that’s easy for me to say – I’m not president. read more

WND Exclusive – What Bezos isn’t buying enough of: Politicians

There are two ways to develop a monopoly in America. One way is based upon capitalism, freedom and the free market.

This is the more transparent approach, but it also doesn’t have as much staying power, due to competition – the constant striving of others to build a better mousetrap, if you will. And despite what we think and are told, there is always a better mousetrap around the corner. This way is also much more difficult, for one has to remain on top of his game not only to achieve the goal of becoming a monopoly, but to maintain it. read more
