    Chess, not checkers. This is the second big score of the week. In the first one, Trump wants Congress to act and so he took an unpopular policy and enforced it, which is going to lead to a legislative action. Now we get to the second big Trump score. Embarrassing the left. Don't let the left rile you up. Here are some tools with which you can prove that their outrage is completely political and insincere in nature. Via Brandon Derby (H/T Ben Shapiro) on Twitter. These are from 2014. They depict obama's "concentration camps" All from 2014. There are many...

    There is a great amount of bleeding heartism going on right now regarding the border policy of separating children from their families. Even Laura Bush has joined the chorus. In an unusual break from her political retirement, former first lady Laura Bush condemned the Trump administration’s practice of separating parents and children while their parents are prosecuted for illegally entering the country. “I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart,” she wrote in a Washington Post article published on...

    England is in the midst of a crime wave. It is also in the midst of a cultural war that sees the country verging on fascism. British girls are being raped on an "industrial scale." "Between acts of abuse sometimes stretching over a number of days, the Oxford men ensured girls were guarded so that they could not escape. In addition to being abused in various locations in Oxford, some of the girls were taken to other towns and cities such as London and Bournemouth for the same purpose." — Oxfordshire Serious Case Review."I turned up at the police station...

    Well that headline got your attention, didn't it? Yeah, it's a bit over the top but how else do you explain what we've seen take place? This actually goes back to the end of April, but to recap: Comedian Michelle Wolf used the White House Correspondents' Dinner as an opportunity to give an audition for the next late night TV show host opening by firing off a nasty, vitriolic routine, including anti-woman and anti-gay slurring. It was so bad that even members of the MSM acknowledged that Wolf went too far and they would have a harder time doing their...

    One of the unfortunate side effects of Roseanne’s racist tweet implosion involving Valerie Jarrett is that it may put off limits the documented influence held by the Muslim Brotherhood in the Obama administration, influence that was so great we handed over a loyal ally for a time – Egypt - to its control. The key player in Obama’s administration is of course the Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett. Her role in the Obama administration has been likened to the mysterious Rasputin in the era of the Russian czars: Her influence is shown by an account in Richard Miniter's book "Leading From Behind:...

    That Russia investigation. First they told us it began with a FISA warrant on Carter Page, who appeared in a Michael Isikoff story in September 2016  and his life has been upended ever since. As that fell apart, they said no, it wasn't Carter Page. It was George Papadopoulos.  Pay close attention to what is said about him. NY Times WASHINGTON — During a night of heavy drinking at an upscale London bar in May 2016, George Papadopoulos, a young foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, made a startling revelation to Australia’s top diplomat in Britain: Russia had political...

    Unless we assume the FBI went completely rogue, it is inconceivable that the deployments of personnel to spy on the Trump campaign and make provocative contact with its lesser members could have occurred without the full knowledge and control of the occupants of the Oval Office. Obama may claim a scandal-free administration but after Fast and Furious, the targeting of the Tea Party by the IRS, the Benghazi cover-up, Hillary’s emails, to name a few, but spygate is just the latest. I use the plural “occupants” because Barack Hussein Obama many have been nominally the President of the United States,...

    We have been fed an unending line of BS from James Comey, John Brennan and James Clapper.  Clapper, in particular, has been a source of egregious deceit. He's been lying for some time. Remember this one? "Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?" committee member Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Clapper during the March 12 hearing. In response, Clapper replied quickly: "No, sir." "There are cases where they could inadvertently perhaps collect [intelligence on Americans], but not wittingly," the U.S. intelligence chief told Wyden and the rest of the committee. That...

    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,...

    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...

    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.

    “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.
