According to Chief Eddie Gallagher’s many friends and family he is the victim of a couple of vindictive FNGs (...‘Fresh’ New Guys) who didn’t approve of Gallagher’s leadership style and set out to sabotage him with trumped up charges. So far, they have been successful.

NEW ATTORNEY GENERAL NEEDS TO CLEAN HOUSE

NEW ATTORNEY GENERAL NEEDS TO CLEAN HOUSEWith the confirmation of William Barr as the new U.S. Attorney General, there is hope that the Department of Justice (DOJ) can regain some of its reputation that has been lost in the last few years.

Once viewed as a fair and respected law enforcement agency, the DOJ is now seen as a hotbed of anti-Trump Democratic Party activism. In the 2016 election, The Hill reported that an astounding 97% of DOJ employee contributions were given to Hillary Clinton, while Donald Trump received only 3%.

The liberal direction of the DOJ is nothing new. In the Obama administration, then Attorney General Eric Holder was a liberal activist instead of the nation’s top law enforcement officer. Holder infamously labeled America “a nation of cowards” for not having the courage to discuss race relations. Thereafter, he spent his entire tenure obsessively focused on race. It was certainly a questionable decision when his department decided not to prosecute members of the Black Panthers who were threatening voters and armed with a weapon at a precinct in Philadelphia. He made sure that no investigations ever touched President Obama, since he promised to be his “wing man.”

GOP Needs To Reorganize Government, Not More Partial Shutdowns

Restoring the RepublicThe fact that Republicans always get blamed for “partial government shutdowns,” ought to be enough of a lesson that the strategy of threatening one is always a losing strategy. Why? Because these shutdowns are stupid, and the American People don’t like stupid. What the American People want is smart, and the only answer is federalism: restoring the balance between the federal government and the sovereign States, and even getting rid of the personal federal income tax in the process.

The latest looming “partial government shutdown,” which would have been the second in three months, has been averted, but unless Republicans embrace the hard work of restoring federalism, they invariably will find themselves again threatening another partial government shutdown over the next budget dispute. Oh sure, like addicts, the Republicans will press that button marked “threaten partial government shutdown,” and believe with all their might and brainpower that this time it will be different and the masses of Americans will rise to their defense and applaud their bravery against the federal government leviathan. Like clockwork, when it doesn’t work after a week, two weeks, a month, and the Republicans capitulate, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and the rest of the Democrats in the media will laugh their collective faces off at the GOP.

McCabe Admits his Treason!

In a move that veritably boggles the mind, fired FBI’er Andrew McCabe has admitted his role in the—mercifully—ineffective coup against President Trump and his administration…aka government.  In an interview scheduled to air on next Sunday’s “60 Minutes,” McCabe detailed his and his FBI co-conspirators parts in the planned, plotted and implemented attempted coup against legally-elected President Trump—using a fake Russian dossier.  Mueller’s and Rosenstein’s parts in the scheme were for Rosenstein to appoint former FBI Director Mueller to the position of Special Counsel to investigate Trump.  This position requires that a crime be listed before the investigation may go forth.  There was never—and still isn’t—any crime listed.  As I’ve written in several columns, this investigation was illegal from its inception.  Still…no one in the government has made any attempt to stop it!  That, coupled with the fact that the now-infamous “dossier” against Trump was made up out of whole cloth and that Russian Agents were hired by the Hillary Clinton campaign to write it should—at the very least—cause the arrests of the perpetrators via US Marshall’s office.

What’s Bad for the Media is Good for America

What's Bad for the Media is Good for AmericaThe winter freeze might have shut down entire cities, but it couldn’t slow down job growth as the economy roared through the cold and shattered projections with 304,000 non-farm jobs in January.

There were job gains everywhere from transportation (27,000) to health care (42,000) to hospitality (74,000). Under Trump, construction gained 338,000 jobs in 12 months while manufacturing picked up 261,000 jobs in that same period. There was good news for many industries, but bad news for one.

The media is freezing colder than the polar vortex with thousands of lost jobs in January and February.

Green New Deal or the Brainless New Deal

Green New Deal or the Brainless New DealWhen I heard that Sen. Mitch McConnell said he would bring the Green New Deal to the Senate floor for a vote, I was totally surprised. What is McConnell thinking?

What were the authors thinking when they wrote it? It’s not only total nonsense, it’s based on a false premise that ignores reality.

In the first place, earth’s climate is governed by the output of the sun, which varies, earth’s orbit, which varies, and earth’s tilt, which also varies. On top of that, water vapor is a much more potent green house gas, and earth’s atmosphere is full of water vapor. As a matter of fact, earth would turn into a frozen wasteland without it. The climate change scare is nothing more than a red herring designed to expand government control over the activities of people. People who support the Green New Deal are either uninformed dreamers or useful idiots, or both.

It’s Not a Dream, It’s a Nightmare

If you listen to many of the Democrats regarding the nonsensical “New Green Deal” sponsored by that ditsy new Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (a/k/a AOC), they claim that the provisions of this proposal are a “dream”, and is a start of a conversation about the theory of man-made climate change.  From what you’ve read or heard, do you think this proposal is a “dream” or do you think it is a “nightmare”?

For years, ever since that “global warming” guru, Al Gore, started proselytizing about the dangers of man-made climate change (a euphemism for global warming) with his discredited film, “An Inconvenient Truth”, the loony left has been clamoring for changes to our environmental laws to overcome the damage, they predict will do harm to our environment if we don’t enact these changes.

Trump to Formally Declare Border Emergency

TRUMP TO FORMALLY DECLARE BORDER EMERGENCYA defiant President Trump promised yesterday to declare a national emergency to get the wall he promised to build constructed on America’s porous southern border, as Congress gave him funding –with plenty of strings attached– to build 55 miles of border barriers.

“President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action—including a national emergency—to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border[,]” the White House tweeted Thursday at 3:44 p.m.

Trump, who said he was “not thrilled” with the omnibus spending bill, is nevertheless expected to sign “and declare the national emergency in an appearance Friday morning, according to a senior White House official who spoke on the condition of anonymity,” the Washington Post reports.


Where Do We Go From Here?

Where Do We Go From Here?As a retired Member of Congress (1985-97), my heart breaks for what we are leaving our kids and grandchildren. We have failed to keep our country together. 

We have been shamed into letting happen what has taken place with our culture for fear of offending someone, either personally or as a group.

Politicians that have sought power and position rather than stand up for the country they are supposed to protect, hunt for votes and use our tax money, break the law and invite people to come here illegally to build their voter base. 

It is a sorry time in our history. I will be considered some kind of nut job for blowing the horn on this invasion of our Constitution and way of life. However, what we really need are more nut jobs to sound the horn!

Forgetting Why We Fought in Afghanistan

Forgetting Why We Fought in AfghanistanSome of you might say that we were fighting the Taliban because they are an Islamic terrorist organization that harbored Al Qaeda. We sought to eliminate the base of operations they maintained in Afghanistan, but somewhere we got distracted and started nation building. We lost our enemy focus and should have sent a clear message to Pakistan that the Taliban is the enemy, and if harboring the enemy, we will pursue them. If the Taliban does not respect borders, neither shall we. Choose with whom you have an alliance, the US or the Taliban.

When we saw that Osama Bin Laden was hiding in plain sight in Abbottabad, Pakistan — a massive compound — the same city where the Pakistan Military Academy is located, we should have sent a message. The Pakistani ISI, their intelligence agency is not friendly to us. As a matter of fact, there is plenty of evidence of their “collusion” with Islamic jihadists.Let us not forget, the Taliban butchered people, beheaded them, stoned women to death, refused to allow girls to get an education, and even shot Malala Yousafzai in the head for being a vocal proponent for girls’ education.

Red-Green Axis Chokes on Omar’s Antisemitism

Red-Green Axis Chokes on Omar’s AntisemitismFirst term Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) ignited a storm of controversy with a Tweet on Sunday 10 February 2019 that cast AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) as a Jewish lobby whose money buys a pro-Israel U.S. foreign policy. In response to a Glenn Greenwald tweet invoking the familiar “dual loyalty” trope about U.S. support for Israel, Omar’s sly double entendre, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby” roused even Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party leadership to demand an apology from Omar…which she provided, sort of.

Declaring that “Anti-Semitism is real” and “I unequivocally apologize,” Omar then took it all back with her very next statement: “At the same time, I reaffirm the problematic role of lobbyists in our politics, whether it be AIPAC, the NRA or the fossil fuel industry. It’s gone on too long and we must be willing to address it.” Then hours later, Omar was back on Twitter again, re-tweeting a thread with a former staffer on a failed congressional campaign who claimed his candidate accepted AIPAC money in return for issuing pro-Israel statements. Worse yet, the re-tweeted thread included explicit criticism of Pelosi for demanding Omar’s apology.

“Coalface” and the Left’s Betrayal of the Working Class

Coalface and the Left's Betrayal of the Working ClassWhen I was growing up, the man who delivered coal to our school jokingly warned me that if I didn’t study hard and get good grades, I would also end up delivering coal.

It was a joke. But it also wasn’t.

Working with coal was hard and dirty. Even if all you had to do was deliver it. And, there, far removed culturally and geographically from America and its old minstrel shows, coal dust meant hard work.

The Revenge of the Cradle

The Revenge of the Cradle“Do not allow America to fall as Europe has fallen.” – Katie Hopkins

The Sunday Times wrote ten years ago that a billionaire’s club had met secretly, at the initiative of Bill Gates, to discuss how their philanthropy could be used to implement “ways of tackling a disastrous environmental, social, and industrial threat” of overpopulation.  Ted Turner, Oprah Winfrey, Michael Bloomberg, Warren Buffet, George Soros and David Rockefeller Jr. were among those in attendance.  (May 24, 2009)

Their desires to curb overpopulation [over 7 billion now] met with Third World resistance as they believed that “contraception and female education weakened traditional values.” The focus shifted to the developed world: euthanasia, the destruction of the traditional family unit, and to abortion mills, passing infanticide laws as a “choice” in as many states as possible, even killing a healthy infant a minute before birth.
