    They're not after me, They're after you. I'm just in the way A spokesperson for the special counsel disputed BuzzFeed’s junk report, calling it “inaccurate.”—Cristina Laila “BuzzFeed got nuked by Mueller’s office after they floated a fake news…report” As most of you know by now the media’s latest TEOTWAWKI (The End Of The World As We Know It) hair-on-fire anti-Trump hysteria has turned out to be yet another nothing-burger. Surprise, surprise, yawn. Another “bombshell report” that turns out to be nothing but a firecracker, if that.

    And we’ll ride out together, up that road to skedaddle I bought me a saddle on which to skedaddle, But I hadn’t a horse to put under. I could hear the herd comin’ and see the herd goin’ And their hooves were a beatin’ like thunder. And, that sound seemed to say “Cowboy, step away, ‘Cause if you stand in this road, you’ll go under.”

    I could have been detained and required to provide breath samples for doing nothing more than purchasing a bottle of alcohol from a government store while perfectly sober As I wrote in an earlier article, new laws concerning drinking and driving came into effect in Canada on Dec. 18. As well as increased penalties, cops no longer have to have a “reasonable suspicion” that a driver has been drinking before demanding that driver provide suitable breath samples. As well, a police officer can demand someone provide breath samples if that person has driven anytime within the previous two hours. If...
  • The Mirror On The White House Wall Shows The Democrats For What They Really Are

    White House mirror was supposed to do what the mainstream and social media are doing: show the Democrats as heroes in the border wall/government shutdown boondoggle. Instead it shows them as they really are, and it's not a pretty picture The mirror on the White House Wall was supposed to show President Donald Trump as “immoral” for wanting to protect his country’s southern border with a wall. Instead the mirror is showing how immoral Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and the high-handed, hate-ridden Democrats are. The mainstream and social media have yet to ask how wanting to protect the citizenry from...

    LOL! If they weren’t “sneaking out of town” and “looking stupid”, then what were they doing? For once—just once—in two years the progressive cabal is half right in blaming President Donald Trump for something: “President Trump made Democrats “look like fools” last week when when he denied military aircraft to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for an overseas trip after she suggested he delay the State of the Union address until the partial government is over, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews admitted on his show last week

    DBDailyUpdate ^ | David Blackmon
    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The fake news appears to be undergoing a “quickening”, to borrow a phrase. As the fake journalists a the nation’s major media outlets carry out their increasingly frenzied efforts to carry water for the Democrats, the presence of anything remotely resembling real “news” reporting on the nation’s airwaves becomes little more than passing memories of a previous generation. On Sunday, pretty much the entirety of the establishment news media focused almost exclusively on two stories that fake reporters had simply invented: a) the Buzzfeed report that claimed President Donald Trump had ordered...

    Gun Watch ^ | 21 January, 2018 | Dean Weingarten
    Recently re-elected in November, 2018, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is taking scofflaw counties and cities to court. The subordinate government entities refuse to conform to a reform of Texas gun law. In 2015, the Texas government passed an open carry statute. The statute went in effect on 1 January, 2016. Part of the statute was to prohibit subordinate units of Texas government, such as cities and counties, from infringing on the carry rights of legally armed Texans.  Specifically, the number of official "gun free zones" were reduced.  Gun free zones were generally forbidden in government buildings. There were...

    ArticleVBlog ^ | January 21st 2019 | Rodney Dodsworth
    I am at a loss to explain why the many patriots who defend the natural right of self-defense in the Second Amendment often do not extend this fundamental right to society. Perhaps it’s because those who occupy the heights of media, entertainment, academe, and government over-emphasize individual rights. They do so without regard to the effect their expansive view of personal rights (typically so-called “human rights”) has on societal well-being. Reason rejects a supposed individual right if it harms society. People gather together in political society to defend themselves. As John Locke wrote, “the first and fundamental natural Law, which...

    Family Now Receiving Violent Threats The left has been running around with torches and pitchforks ready to destroy a group of Catholic teens for an awkward response to a leftist protester — and they doxed a random kid in the process. Now, his family is receiving violent threats — and he wasn’t even there. Soon after the incident, people began spreading photos of a teen named Michael Hodge — believing that he was Nick Sandmann, the teen who was confronted by the Native American activist. There are hundreds of tweets with his name, photos, and personal information about him...

    Hoover Institute ^ | 17 Jan 2019 | Angelo Codevilla
    Europe was never a full partner in its own defense. The very question—Will Europe ever fully partner with the U.S., or will the European Union and NATO continue to downplay the necessity of military readiness?—is no longer meaningful as posed, because the political energies of Europe’s elites are absorbed as they try to fend off attacks on their legitimacy by broad sectors of their population. The notion that Europeans and Americans were full partners in the NATO alliance and that this “kept the Russians out…etc.” was always a fiction, albeit a useful one. Today it is dysfunctional, an obstacle to...

    FULL TITLE: Muslim from Texas who joined the Islamic State: “I saw some crucifixions. You know, that’s just normal life there.” Of course it was normal life in the Islamic State, because the Islamic State adhered scrupulously to Sharia within its domains. And crucifixion is a Sharia punishment, based on the Qur’an: “Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That...

    American Thinker ^ | January 18, 2019 | Monica Showalter
    PBS thought it had a good one: a poll showing the public opposed to the government shutdown and disapproving of President Trump. It was a poll like all of PBS's other polls, negative to Trump, and a clear attempt to influence the "narrative" repeated by most of the Beltway press and its talking heads. Dreary, dreary, it might have run and gone without mention. ...except that Mediaite went deep into the weeds of reading the actual poll line by line and found something eye-popping: Shock Poll: Trump Gains 19 Points with Latino Voters During Border Wall Shutdown That's the headline;...

    What can you say about a week that began with stacks of fast-food cheeseburgers in the White House and ended with Trump putting Nancy Pelosi on the no-fly list? I’d say it means Season 3 of The Trump Show is going to be lit. It’s only January. By summer, as the Democratic 2020 presidential field fills out, it is likely that liberals will be on the verge of clinical insanity. Trump is clearly Inspector Clouseau to the Democrats’ Chief Inspector Dreyfus. Just wait until Trump hears about Gillette razors. He’ll probably give his away to Jim Acosta.

    Chicago Boyz ^ | Jan 19 2019 | Trent Telenko
    Welcome to day twenty eight day of the U.S. Federal government shutdown. Normally “Federal Government shut downs” are a game of “chicken” where Congressional (usually GOP) and Executive Branch (usually Democrat) politicians are playing a game of virtue signaling to their political base until the accumulated toxic waste of bad media and public protest let the Congress “compromise” on spending more money with limited blow back in their next partisan primary. This time is very different, and it’s far more than just a matter of political parties changing sides in government. President Trump is working to a “Xanatos Gambit” political-media...

    On 18 January, 2019, during the March for Life in Washington, D.C., another much smaller event was also scheduled. It was the first Indigenous Peoples March.  The video at the link shows there may have been a couple of hundred at the march, compared to many thousands at the 46th March for Life. Nathan Phillips, an Oklahoma elder and Native American activist, was drumming and chanting during the two events. He moved away from his group and approached a group of pro-life teenagers, some of who were wearing MAGA hats. The video can be seen below. Phillips gets right...
