  • A Simple Piece of Common Sense Gun Legislation the Will Actually End Mass Shootings

    OK, I know what you're thinking - you're obviously skeptical of a proposal like this coming from a Conservative who claims to respect the 2nd Amendment. Bear with me, though. I could throw out stats like actual numbers trying to tie gun ownership to violent crime. I could trot out the CDC's own study regarding the use of guns for crime versus self defense. How about the lies that the gun grabbers like to use? Or maybe the many areas where the government broke down prior to and during the Parkland shooting? Even the Santa Fe shooter, while not obvious at first,...
  • What if obama did nothing about Russia because it was the ruse to frame Trump?

    Part 1: George Papadopoulos and Josef Mifsud Inaction. It's been rattling around my head for a long time. Why was there no action? Why didn't obama do something? barack obama was warned about Russian meddling in 2014. The Obama administration received multiple warnings from national security officials between 2014 and 2016 that the Kremlin was ramping up its intelligence operations and building disinformation networks it could use to disrupt the U.S. political system, according to more than half a dozen current and former officials. As early as 2014, the administration received a report that quoted a well-connected Russian source as...

    Let there be no doubt. obama spied on Trump in a YUGE way. Readers of this blog know that this is not new to us. Some of the posts are here, here, here and here. It is the depth and breadth of the spying that is emerging from the swamp and the conspirators are leaking like sieves trying to spin the narrative and distract America from the truth. And the truth is here. Watch how this transpires. How the Trump spying began The denials This could be seriously illegal. Now watch these two accounts Sure. That's why there were no...

    The incessant smear campaigns by the progressive socialists must stop. It is apparent that this is the weapon of choice among the leftists who inhabit the Deep State and the media. The fact that they act the way they do, venturing well outside the rule of law or even basic decency is nothing more than the fact that they feel morally superior and indispensable.  The morality of the past and the affirmation that people can disagree civilly is now gone. Any deviation from moving forward to make the world as they want it must be destroyed and any means are...
  • “I am happy that my son is a martyr”

    Yazan Tubasi was one of the Palestinians killed in the newest Gaza rioting. His father is happy that his son is a martyr. That, in a nutshell, is what's wrong with Palestinians. Numerous media outlets have referred to what happened in Gaza as a "protest", but it was not a protest. It was a riot. It was violence planned by Hamas. The media coverage of terror group Hamas’ deliberately-crafted border assault on Israel has been egregious: from CNN to MSNBC to The New York Times, mainstream outlets have acted as propaganda vehicles for one of the worst regimes on the...

    This monster: The ISIS commander behind the brutal execution of a Jordanian pilot who was burned to death in a cage in 2015 is among the four senior ISIS leaders captured last week in Iraq. Saddam al-Jamal is one of the most senior ISIS commanders to be detained so far and was tipped as a future leader of the death cult. He gained a reputation for brutality as an ISIS commander with a taste for personally beheading prisoners. The Jordanian security services believe he masterminded the brutal killing of downed pilot Muath al-Kasasbeh in 2015. Al-Kasasbeh was a Royal Jordanian Air Force pilot...

    As Tucker Carlson is saying right now, for the last year all you heard from the mouths of democrats was "Russia, Russia, Russia." They called Trump a Russian dupe and Michael Flynn a traitor. After a year with zero evidence of any Trump-Russia collusion and Robert Mueller inexplicably indicting a ham sandwich, people are catching on to this whole charade being what Trump says it is- a witch hunt.  A number of signals are being sent from democrats revealing their intent to put as much room as they can between them and all the nasty things they've said about Trump.

    I consider myself not a torture apologist so much as I am a torture denier. As today with Gina Haspel and questions over the extent of her involvement with the CIA RDI program and whether or not she'd bring back CIA interrogations, back in 2007, President Bush's nominee for Attorney General also raised questions and concerns over one issue:  Waterboarding. Mukasey has called waterboarding personally "repugnant," but said he did not know enough about how it has been used to define it as torture. The Washington debate over the simulated-drowning technique may be new, but the practice is not. It...

    The more I think about it, the more I admire Donald Trump. It's probably not for what you're thinking. It's not simply that he's roused a moribund economy. It's not that he's boosted consumer confidence. It's not the multitude of conservative judges he's installing. Sean Hannitty complied a list of Trump accomplishments. You can see them here. From Rasmussen Reports: Tax Cuts and Jobs Act Repealed Individual Mandate Justice Neil Gorsuch ANWR Set Record for First-Year Judicial Appointments to Federal Appellate Courts Historic Reduction in Illegal Immigration Crushing ISIS Caliphate Deregulation: Rolling Back the Militant Administrative State More are at...

    “My moral compass is strong, I would not allow CIA to undertake activity that I thought was immoral even if it was technically legal -- I would absolutely not permit it.”-Gina HaspelGina Haspel, when asked at her Senate confirmation hearing yesterday about President Trump's previously stated idea that torture "absolutely works,":  "I don't believe that torture works." Later, Kamala Harris used her opportunity to question Haspel with a bit of grandstanding and moral posturing: https://www.youtube.com/embed/5DdyHtqCwF0"One question I've not heard you previously answer"?  Well....In one sense Haspel did answer it when the question was framed as "torture"; but Harris was smart...

    “And if they don’t want to do, that’s fine. If they do want to do, then I will work toward that end. I want to do everything within the bounds of what you’re allowed to do legally. But do I feel it works? Absolutely, I feel it works,” - President Trump Gina Haspel is probably in for a fight. But I believe she will achieve confirmation. Why? Because after all the partisan hysteria is said and done, she appears to be the most qualified candidate to lead the CIA forward; and the one who really should have the most...

    It's hard to figure how many times I have heard people say what a great guy Robert Mueller is.  The BBC calls him "incorruptible." Lindsay Graham thinks he's the perfect guy for the job. He may be a good prosecutor, but the fact is he is a miserable pr*ck. Mueller has populated his team almost uniformly with democrats: None of the 16 lawyers known to work for special counsel Robert Mueller are registered RepublicansThere are 13 registered Democrats on the investigation and three lawyers with no party affiliationCampaign finance records reveal that 11 lawyers are Democratic donors Mueller's key team member has...

    This sort of thing is usually relegated to third world countries and Communist states. Michael FlynnThe loathsome insubordinate Sally Yates cited the Logan Act when she decided to entrap and cripple Michael Flynn for doing nothing more than doing the job he was tasked to do- talk to the Russians during the transition.  Using an act for which no one has ever been prosecuted, she sent FBI agents to interrogate Flynn. They reported that they saw no deceit in Flynn, but somehow he ended up being indicted by Robert Mueller for lying to the FBI after reportedly being exonerated by...

    James Comey is a disgrace. Of that there is no doubt. He sees himself as the perennial boy scout who can do no wrong. He believes that something is right, justified and appropriate simply because he is the one doing it. When he leaks something it's not a leak. When he lies, it's not a lie. It's scary to think such a person could become the head of the premier law enforcement agency in the country. The Inspector General's report is coming soon and it is expected to torch Comey: During an interview with Bill O'Reilly on the former Fox News host's...

    A year ago Donald Trump suggested the media is the enemy of the people. Check out this new tweet from The Hill: Really? Here's a piece from the article: Rudy Giuliani said late Wednesday that men like senior presidential adviser Jared Kushner are “disposable,” but it would cross the line for the special prosecutor to go after first daughter Ivanka Trump. Scroll down a little more and you see what Giuliani did actually say: “Jared is a fine man, you know that,” Giuliani, who joined President Trump's legal team last month, said on Fox News. “Men are disposable. But a fine woman like Ivanka?...

    Missing from the leaked list of questions special counsel Robert Mueller is said to want to ask President Trump is the classic one – when did you stop beating your wife? This is how farcical Mueller’s witch hunt has become- a list of questions that could have been written by a failing first-year law student amounting to the same perjury trap that got Martha Stewart, Scooter Libby and Michael Flynn. Again, what’s the crime? Collusion is not a crime and the only proven collusion is between the Clinton campaign, the DNC, and a British spy working with Russian sources. Yet...

    It's also no secret that the press hates Donald Trump.  Trump thinks the press is crap and at the White House Correspondents' Dinner they proved him right. The highlight, if you will, was comedian (allegedly) Michelle Wolf.  The Trump hating Wolf, of the Daily Show, was brought in by the White House Correspondents' Association. She had a lot to say, most of it was truly nasty. She attacked a lot of people but was hardest on Sarah Sanders: “Every time Sarah steps up to the podium, I get excited,” the comedian said. “I’m not really sure what we’re going to...

    It would have been nice if Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, one of the gods of totalitarian tech, had been sitting next to iconic conservative bloggers Diamond and Silk as they testified on Zuckerberg’s censoring of their Facebook page and the opinions the dynamic duo expressed there. But that would have meant that the Internet gatekeeper would have had to leave his safe space of corporate and even congressional sycophancy. As it was, Zuckerberg could sit back and watch Democrats engage at Thursday’s House Judiciary Committee hearings in the character assassination they level at any blacks who express conservative opinions or...

    James Comey lives in a world of his own rules. The more you listen to him, the worse he gets. Hubris doesn't begin to describe him. Comey testified under oath that he never leaked information nor did he approve of a leak. That's just not true, but in Comeyworld the rules are different. You see, he believes he  didn't "leak", he just communicated substance: “First, I didn’t leak memos. I asked a friend to communicate the substance … one unclassified memo to the media, and I was a private citizen.”  So what, then, is a "leak"? “I think of a leak as an unauthorized...

    With each day it becomes more and more clear that Donald Trump has been framed vis-a-vis the Russian collusion accusation. How exactly it found life is beginning to clear, but there are a couple of things that need concretion. Let's review how this all began.
