Republicans Flirting With Earmarks Again

Social Media Censorship of Conservatives
Proven in Project Veritas Undercover Video
{} ~ It’s something that those of us in the internet media have known for a long time simply as part of the monitoring our sites... There is an orchestrated effort online to not only manipulate public opinion towards the leftist, globalist, anti-American slant and to take down conservatives in the process. Social media censorship is real and a major part of its focus is on conservative alternative media, to eliminate those who ring the alarm bells and expose the attacks of the left by forcing us out of business and effectively muting our voices. Those of us who are able to cling on have our exposure reduced to the point of being a non-factor. It’s across the board, not a situation of one or two bloggers becoming unpopular, it’s a constant battle and one that has us squarely in their crosshairs. All conservatives are being targeted for censorship...
John Bolton: Not Turning 'Screws' 
to Iran Would Be 'Tragic Mistake'
by Cathy Burke

{} ~ Former U.N. ambassador John Bolton said Thursday it would be a "tragic mistake"... 
for the Trump administration to "turn away the opportunity to put the economic screws" on Iran by continuing to waive sanctions against the country. In an interview on Fox News' "Outnumbered Overtime With Harris Faulkner,"  Bolton said now that protests are roiling Iran, America should seize the opportunity "to get out of the nuclear deal completely" and "bring back all of the sanctions that have been suspended as a consequence of the deal."...
The DOJ is Finally Opening an Investigation 
into liar-Hillary Clinton’s Misdeeds
{} ~ Boy. The FBI sure made a mess of things over the past two years. If you just read a list of their gaffes, it might read as satire... Unfortunately, it’s all true. But, we don’t live in a stagnant country, and things never stay the same forever. The FBI is finally showing faint signs of life and the potential to return to form and be the objective investigative, crime stopping unit they were designed to be in the first place. Even though every literate American has known for years that the liar-Clintons and everything they touch are corrupt, the FBI seems to have finally noticed. The liar-Clinton Foundation is finally facing a formal investigation from the FBI. Before you sigh in abject relief, remember that this is the same organization that has deployed two separate teams against Trump that were both caught in unacceptable political bias. The idea that the liar-Clintons might face a real investigation is encouraging, but if they’re lingering corruption is still strong enough, this could just be a formal way for them to escape justice yet again...
Establishment Insider Calls 
for Military Intervention in Venezuela
by Bob Adelmann
{} ~ When an obscure college professor nearing retirement age suggests that the only way to “solve” the Venezuelan “crisis” is through military intervention... few people would pay any attention. But when that person, Ricardo Hausmann, is a professor at Harvard and a director of the John F. Kennedy School of Government there, his proposal represents much more than just wishful thinking. Hausmann, with a Ph.D. in economics from Cornell University, is a bona fide Keynesian interventionist. Considering that Hausmann was a former minister of planning in Venezuela and a member of the board of directors of the Central Bank of Venezuela in the early 1990s, one can rest assured that free market principles aren’t being considered as any part of his solution to Venezuela’s problems. Under socialism, things have gotten so bad in Venezuela that Hausmann now thinks military intervention is the only cure. His plan, “D Day Venezuela,” is built on the conclusion that all other forms of intervention — from sanctions to freezing assets belonging to Maduro and 50 of his top people to freezing Maduro out of the U.S. bond market — simply aren’t working. Wrote Hausmann, “The Venezuelan crisis is moving relentlessly from catastrophic to unimaginable.” He carefully built the case that the end justifies the means...

Republicans Flirting With Earmarks Again
by Thomas Gallatin:  Reminiscent of a scene from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, like men drawn to the power of the One Ring, Republicans are actively contemplating a return to that corrupting practice of pork-barrel spending known as “earmarks.” It was merely seven years ago that a GOP-controlled House finally banned the practice conservatives had long loathed. But now, Republicans are justifying the practice by highlighting how much good they could do.

          Even President Donald Trump floated the idea, saying on Tuesday, “I hear so much about earmarks and how there was a great friendliness [among lawmakers] when you had earmarks. Of course, they had other problems, but maybe all of you should start thinking about going back to a form of earmarks. One thing it did is it brought everybody together.” Of course for Trump, who is more populist than fiscal conservative, he’s looking at eliminating roadblocks to his bigger agenda. His pragmatic instinct is to make deals in order to get that agenda done, and greasing the skids with earmarks makes deals easier.
          But for congressional Republicans, the consequences of reversing course on such a politically potent issue could be significant, especially in what is sure to be a hotly contested election year. As Brian Riedl, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, warned, “The last time the Republicans ran a congressional earmark factory, they lost control of Congress. In 2006, when the Democrats took Congress, the No. 1 issue according to voters was pork and corruption. … It was a political disaster.” Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) pointedly noted, “We just had a political revolution launched against the swamp [across] the political spectrum all the way from commie-Bernie to Trump voters. I don’t think any of those folks along that entire spectrum would be in favor of earmarks.” Indeed, you don’t drain the swamp by feeding the swamp creatures.
          The reason Republicans are even suggesting a return to earmarks is the fact that it can be an effective incentive for encouraging compromise and garnering votes from across the aisle. Essentially, it’s a legal way to buy votes, but the consequences are overspending, the creation of super-incumbents, bigger government and greater opportunity for waste and corruption. Like Frodo, Republicans need to drop talk of earmarks into Mt. Doom and be done with it forever.  ~The Patriot Pos

 Gun Control Crowd Silent After Black Female
 Kills Three In Maryland Shooting 

A 26-year-old female stormed a RiteAid distribution center with a pistol this morning in Aberdeen, MD, killing three before turning the weapon on herself, according to police.

“Our suspect is a lone female suspect, age 26, who had a last known address in Baltimore County. She has died at the hospital from fatal injury, a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” Harford County Sheriff Jeff Gahler said.

The shooter has been identified by multiple news outlets as Snochia Moseley, a disgruntled temporary employee who also happens to be a black female.

Normally in the case of a mass shooting incident like this, Twitter would be ablaze with calls for gun control measures, inane nonsense about terrorism, labels of toxic masculinity and dismantling gun rights groups like the NRA.

But something is different about today’s shooting: it was not carried out by a white male, leading to deafening silence from the usual suspects in the anti-gun world.

Moms Demand Action, a gun control group partnered with far left Everytown for Gun Safety, has been silent except for a generic “condolences” message posted to its Twitter page.

The group’s founder, ever-outspoken Shannon Watts, has not said a word about the shooting on her active Twitter feed.

There has been nothing but silence from petulant David Hogg, face of the Hitler youth pre-pubescent gun control crowd, who rose to national prominence after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in February which killed 17.

Leftist activist Michael Moore has not weighed in, either (literally or figuratively).

Nor is cable news playing the story on repeat with live coverage, a “BREAKING NEWS” chyron, and gun-control activists on call as guests during every segment.

If all of these “activists” truly believed in the cause, shouldn’t the standard be the same regardless of the ethnicity and gender of the shooter?

Big League Politics reached out to Shannon Watts to ask her just that. She did not return our request for comment.

The FBI, the DEA, the ATF, the Maryland State Police, the Maryland Transportation Authority Police and the local municipal departments of Aberdeen, Havre de Grace and Bel Air are all investigating the incident.
