American Conservatives Should Cheer Up, 
Because They’re Winning  
by David Marcus  
thefederalist.com } ~ For some time now there has been a certain “Woe is me” attitude among American conservatives of almost all stripes... It seems to be rooted in a deep sense that the culture war is already lost and the country is changing too fast in ways we can’t combat. It is true that progressive dominance of the media, the educational system, and our cultural institutions very often makes it appear that this is the case. But is it? And if we are to judge the success of American conservatism, to what should we compare it? The most sensible comparison is to the rest of the English-speaking world. We don’t tend to think much about the “English-speaking world,” anymore, notwithstanding Winston Churchill’s several somewhat tedious volumes about it. In this case I’m referring roughly to the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. All of these countries have societies and governments that emerged from the same crucible of English power in the 17th and 18th centuries. So how does American conservatism stack up against that of our siblings with the charming accents? Pretty well. On issues like free speech, gun rights, religious freedom, taxation, health care, energy, and a host of others, the United States has policies that would be unthinkable in the nations of the other sons and daughters of William Shakespeare. In fact, it is a common leftist talking point that United States is the only industrialized nation that doesn’t have blah, blah, blah. In the American context, in almost every case this is meant to say that we are too conservative. A lot of this is baked into the mechanics of our system of government, as opposed to the other nations’ parliamentary models. This was on display recently when New Zealand passed new anti-gun measures a mere month after the tragic terrorist attack at Christchurch. The American left marveled. “Why can’t we do that?” they demanded. The answer of course is the Constitution. Under a parliamentary system, a simple majority in the legislative body can do almost anything it wants, as New Zealand’s did. Under our system, such laws would have to pass two legislative bodies, an executive branch, a judiciary system, and possibly a constitutional amendment process that requires something approaching national consensus. Although our own left and almost everyone in our sibling nations think of this as a flaw, it is in fact a marvelous feature...  https://thefederalist.com/2019/05/28/american-conservatives-cheer-theyre-winning/?utm_source=The+Federalist+List&utm_campaign=b27014f3cf-RSS_The_Federalist_Daily_Updates_w_Transom&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_cfcb868ceb-b27014f3cf-83771801  
Time to Pay the Piper

americanthinker.com } ~ “Time to pay the piper” is an appropriate phrase for what I hope lies ahead in Washington, D.C. The investigation of President Trump failed to find any collusion or obstruction... The Democrats' hero dirty cop-Robert Mueller and his team of prosecutors spent two years and $30-plus million to tell most of us what we already knew. Their report, designed to allow continual Democrat attacks, exonerated Trump. Despite best efforts, they failed, at least in the eyes of the Democratic rabid base. With that out of the way, it is now time to pay the piper.  Attorney General William Barr is now tasked to investigate the origins of the phony investigation against President Trump. The assault is over. The king is still alive and sounds of the piper can be faintly heard. Speculation abounds regarding what was done and by whom. Like him or loathe him, Donald Trump is now on the offensive and he holds all the cards. Watergate may end up looking like a jaywalking violation by the time this investigation is over. For the sake of the country, the investigation should be thorough, fair, and reasonably quick. The punishment need be commensurate with the offenses and painful enough to dissuade future corruption of this type. Sunshine, the best disinfectant, is anathema to both Dracula and the Deep State, but dawn is here...    https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/05/time_to_pay_the_piper.html  
One mile of border wall built over the weekend 
in surprise secret project led by Steve Bannon
by Tom Tillison
bizpacreview.com } ~ A group chaired by former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon accomplished over the weekend what the Nancy Pulosi-led House has all but refused to do — build a wall on the southern border... The group, We Build the Wall, was started by Brian Kolfage, a Purple Heart recipient triple amputee veteran, and has raised more than $22 million through GoFundMe. In a “secret project,” as reported by Yahoo News, the group constructed a mile-long wall of metal slats along the border with Mexico. The project, overseen by construction mogul Tommy Fisher of North Dakota-based Fisher Industries, began Friday evening and was completed by Monday morning, a display of efficiency government contractors could never hope to match. The overall cost was $6 million, with hundreds of workers employed, according to Bannon. Kolfage shared a video of the construction project on the group’s Facebook page: We Build the Wall hastily “purchased the rights” to the private land and got to work right away. “We had to catch them by surprise,” Bannon said, according to Yahoo News. It’s not hard to imagine the response that could have been expected from the open border left, had they known of the project ahead of time — visions of social justice warriors chaining themselves to bulldozers easily come to mind. Local authorities reportedly pointed to the dangerous one mile gap between two 21-mile sections of completed wall “where the cartels and asylum seekers are coming in,” when asked by the group...
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy
by George Rasley
conservativehq.com } ~ In a bombshell report, former CIA Director scumbag/commie-John O. Brennan claims the need for secrecy was so great that he hand-delivered information... from a critical informant close to Russian President Vladimir Putin to President Barack scumbag/liar-nObama and required the envelope to be returned after the President read it. Daniel Chaitin and Jerry Dunleavy of The Washington Examiner report that now, one day after President Trump gave Attorney General William Barr "full and complete authority to declassify information" related to the origins of the federal investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, the New York Times reports this source is in jeopardy. Specifically, write Chaitin and Dunleavy, this informant was the U.S. intelligence community's source in determining that Putin personally "ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election" to undermine Democratic candidate scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton in favor of Trump. scumbag/liar-nObama made this public before he left office. The informant is described by Chaitin and Dunleavy as being a long-nurtured source who rose up the Russian ranks. Believed to still be alive, the well-being of the informant is one concern as Barr digs into the earliest days of the Russia investigation. Former national security officials and Democratic lawmakers are also worried that Trump may be putting other sources and methods at risk as part of a politically motivated effort to "investigate the investigators." Overseen by scumbag/commie-Brennan, the information delivered by this high-placed informant was treated with the utmost care, but done so outside of the norm. Chaitin and Dunleavy remind us word of this high-placed informant first came out in June 2017 in a Washington Post story that said scumbag/commie-Brennan began feeding this material to scumbag/liar-nObama and a small group of aides with a report in an envelope to be read and promptly returned to the CIA. The material was deemed so sensitive that it was kept out of the President’s Daily Brief due to concerns that too many people would be made aware of its contents. Although the Post report said a courier was used to deliver this information, the Times piece said scumbag/commie-Brennan himself gave it to scumbag/liar-nObama, noted Chaitin and Dunleavy...   http://www.conservativehq.com/node/30327  
Dumb and Mean Democrats Lack 
American Consciousness
by Noel S. Williams

americanthinker.com } ~ commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is disturbingly dumb, and the likes of scumbag-Schumer, scumbag-Schiff, and commie-Sanders are mean-spirited...
 Indeed, Dems led by the progressive instigators are devoid of American consciousness, making them the dumbest and meanest interlopers in the public square. They are dumb because, in the words of F. Scott Fitzgerald, they are unable to "hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time while retaining the ability to function." To wit: They cannot consolidate the notions that President Trump, despite his occasional abruptness and forthright demeanor, may still promote policies that make America great. It may be emotionally comforting, but it is foolhardy to obsess over Trump's unpolished style while dismissing his passion to MAGA for all of us. Mentally muddled, the dumb Dems can only stutter and stammer when confronted by figures reflecting a robust economy.  Even though some Dems once espoused Trumpian objectives building a barrier to protect us from hordes of illegal aliens or dallying with trade protectionism, they now prevaricate under pressure from mindless mobs who can barely harbor a single idea while functioning, let alone two. They are mean because they lack the traits that emerge from a higher state of consciousness, such as  self-awareness, empathy, dignity, and compassion. According to Integrated Information Theory, the greater the complexity and degree of integrated information a system maintains, the greater its consciousness. But Dems' information is more like misinformation; far from integrated, each so-called "bombshell" about Trump's supposed offenses invariably disintegrates. Rather than discern style from substance and tolerate a bit of ambiguity, they adopt simplistic absolutism: Trump is evil; his supporters need an intervention. Actually, it is they who are misguided as they concoct one miscarriage of justice after another in order to obstruct. Their tactics in persecuting Trump's allies and their hapless families, destroying livelihoods, and ravaging reputations reflects minimal self-awareness and maximum irrationality. Consumed by hate, they have crashed into the swamps of endless subpoenas and investigations...
Profile of a Hater: Rep. worthless-Ilhan Omar
Michael Swartz:  At one time, hers was an inspiring story: A young child is plucked from a Kenyan refugee camp four years after having escaped the strife in her home country of Somalia, and she and her family ultimately arrive in the U.S. before her 11th birthday. Instead, the feel-good tale of Congresswoman worthless-Ilhan Omar has been sullied by her oft-documented anti-Semitism and her seeming ungratefulness for such good fortune. In fact, only her family’s wealth, prominence, and privilege allowed her such an opportunity, all while she rails against the “privilege” of others.

Now 37 years old, worthless-Omar’s rapid political rise tells part of the story, while then-candidate Donald Trump told another part on a 2016 campaign visit to Minneapolis: “[We] have seen firsthand the problems with faulty refugee vetting,” he said, “with large numbers of Somali refugees coming into your state, without your knowledge, without your support or approval.” Among those refugees was worthless-Omar, who was just about to be formally elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives, having won the Democrat-Farmer-Labor (DFL) primary over a 44-year incumbent legislator who fell victim to the changing demographics in a district that includes a Minneapolis neighborhood known as “Little Mogadishu.”

The area worthless-Omar now represents in Congress was formerly the district of Muslim convert Rep. scumbag-Keith Ellison, yet it also hosts about half of Minnesota’s modest Jewish population. Not surprisingly, then, worthless-Omar’s anti-Semitic statements, as well as those expressing support for the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movementagainst Israel were front and center during the campaign to succeed scumbag-Ellison. While worthless-Omar denied backing BDS at a town hall event, Powerline blogger (and Minneapolis attorney) Scott Johnson put it succinctly: “worthless-Omar knows precisely what she is doing. She lies baldly and without conscience.” Ultimately, worthless-Omar got the DFL endorsement, which was tantamount to victory in her D+26 district.

To play devil’s advocate, perhaps there’s some truth to worthless-Omar’s claims that Republicans “spread misinformation about how refugee resettlement works.” She claims the current setup gives states “leverage” over knowing how many refugees they would get. That said, surely worthless-Omar doesn’t believe that “ignorance is really pervasive in many parts of this country,” does she? Or is she referring to the Left, which routinely traffics in half-truths and demagoguery?

Regardless, worthless-Omar lets the mask slip when, referring to recent pro-life legislationpassed in Alabama and Georgia, she says, “If [the Religious Right] cared about or were concerned about children, they would be concerned about the children that are being detained and those that are dying in camps across our borders, or the children who are languishing in hunger and facing homelessness.” Setting aside the swipe at the pro-life movement, wouldn’t it be preferable if those children weren’t put in the position of being detained in the first place?

What Congress now has in worthless-Omar is an ardent leftist in a somewhat unique package: the first Somali-American elected to Congress and one of the first two Islamic women to serve. So that’s why, this week, she celebrated the “honor to preside over the House Floor” as speaker pro tempore. Far from any kind of real rebuke for her bile, she’s rewarded.

But her anti-American tendencies are evident when she talks to her political peers. Speaking to Benjamin Wallace-Wells of The New Yorker as part of a glowing article on worthless-Omar’s political rise, she told him, “We have values and ideals of prosperity and equality and protecting human dignity. All of these things are part of the American value system.”

So far, so good — until this: “But in actuality we have mass incarceration. We have people who literally are sleeping outside in sub-zero weather. We have all kinds of atrocities. We are caging children at our borders. We have police officers who are shooting unarmed black men. So we have practices that really do not live up to the values and the ideas that are very much part of our DNA.”

worthless-Omar goes on to say that her first impressions of America were romanticized, but then reality hit her hard. Writes Wallace-Wells, “It explained the reaction she had when, four years later, her family was accepted into the United States. In the camp, they had been shown films of pristine, quiet American suburbs. worthless-Omar arrived in busy, dirty New York in 1992, and asked her father why there was so much trash everywhere and people sleeping outside. He said not to worry, that this was not the end of their trip. ‘I didn’t imagine this was also a land of homeless people,’ she said.”

worthless-Ilhan Omar is a very fortunate woman in two respects, even though she doesn’t seem thankful for the first and hasn’t yet realized the blessing of the second. First, as a “feminist with a hijab,” she’s been given opportunities that are denied to millions of women in Islam-dominated nations. But second, since fellow freshman congresswoman commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is sucking up nearly all the oxygen in the room, worthless-Omar’s vile and outlandish statements aren’t part of the public conscience yet. And this is perhaps worthless-Omar’s biggest blessing to date.  ~The Patriot Post
