BOMB #1: When Dobbs asked what was delaying the Inspector General’s report, Solomon told us the reason were new documents that the IG had not been made aware of. The documents detail interactions between disgraced scumbag/liar-Clinton operative, Christopher Steele and Kathleen Kavelec of the State Department, and the subsequent conveying of information to senior FBI officials including the person who now oversees the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division. This has led to a whole new round of questioning by the IG. Including the person who now oversees the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division. Watch Dobbs reaction when he learns that the head of the counterintelligence division is in a position to obscure his own wrongdoing. (:48 seconds in) BOMB #2:...

{} ~ A U.S. military MQ-9 drone was shot down in Yemen, a U.S. official confirmed to Fox News... The drone was shot down late on Tuesday in Yemen’s Dhamar governate, southeast of the Houthi-controlled capital Sanaa, officials told Reuters, which first reported the news. A Houthi military spokesman was quoted earlier by the group’s Al-Masirah TV as saying that air defenses had brought down a U.S. drone. Additional information was not immediately available. One U.S. official told Reuters that the drone had been shot down by a surface-to-air missile operated by the Iranian-backed Houthi group. Another official, however, cautioned it was too early to say who was responsible. This is not the first time Houthi rebels have shot down a U.S. drone in Yemen...
No, America Wasn’t Built On Slavery, But 
Faith That All Men Are Created Equal 
By Joshua Lawson } ~ It’s there in plain sight. Spelled-out in its mission statement, the New York Times’ 1619 Project seeks to “reframe” American history to mark the year 1619 as the “true founding.”... By doing so, the project will “place the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center” of the American story. The year 1619 was chosen for the Times’ “re-founding” to mark when the first slaves arrived in the English settlement of Jamestown. For the Times, this moment irredeemably tainted the nation. Yet viewing the centuries-old actions of men through a 21st-century lens will not solve our present social tensions. Slavery was a heart-wrenching, obstacle during America’s birth, but by no objective analysis was it the central factor of the founding as the 1619 Project claims. Slavery was and is an abomination. The ownership of one man over another is an affront to both natural law and our God-given inalienable rights as human beings. It is an evil part of America’s past—as well as that of nearly every nation on earth. The fact that slavery has a universal heritage does not absolve American slave owners, but it does provide a necessary historical context. During the 17th century, slavery was, sadly, an accepted part of life throughout the world. By A.D. 1619, slavery had existed for more than 5000 years, dating back at least to Mesopotamia. At the time the first African slaves arrived in Jamestown, the Spanish and Portuguese had been enslaving blacks and native peoples in the New World for more than 100 years. Native American tribes had been enslaving each other for who knows how long before that. What’s notable about the United States is not that its citizens held slaves, but that the West’s crusade to end slavery began after Jefferson penned the a spirational words of America’s founding document. Written by Nikole Hannah-Jones, the 7,600-word flagship essay of the 1619 Project asserts that “our democracy’s founding ideals were false when they were written.” Forgiving the fact that America is not a democracy but a constitutional republic, what ideals does she mean? The central organizing principle of the American founding was the preservation of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness...
'RINOCare' Would Not Work
By Bryan Crabtree } ~ When the government can force you to buy insurance, the insurance companies can force you to accept whatever they’ll give you. And make you pay whatever they feel like charging you... This inevitably means you pay more -- and get less -- because there's no longer any market discipline to keep costs down and services high. This is the nut of the problem with scumbag/liar-nObamaCare, which forces people to pay top dollar for coverage they may not need or want, while denying coverage for the things they do need.  For example, some of the “bundled” scumbag/liar-nObamaCare plans require single, middle-aged men without kids to pay for maternity coverage -- but won’t cover an emergency room visit that wasn’t “pre-approved or care provided by an “out of network” doctor. Most of the time, these surprise medical bills can be avoided, but only if you’re not in a hurry. You can research which hospitals are in your network when you're arranging ahead of time for a physical or routine screening. But what if you’re in a hurry? What if it's an emergency? When you're on a gurney, taking an unexpected ride to a hospital, probably the last thing on your mind is whether the doctors who are going to treat you when you get there are "in network." But it'll be on your mind later -- when you get the bill. This business of surprise medical bills, which President Trump has been railing against, is a predictable consequence of government mismanaged and mandated health care. Which is both arbitrary -- and expensive. And it’s about to get worse if a doubling down on ObamaCare called the Lower Health Care Costs Act (LHCC) -- nicknamed “RINOCare” by conservative commentator Charlie Kirk – becomes law...
Training of ‘Quick Assault Team’ 
highlighted by Taliban
By BILL ROGGIO } ~ The Taliban continues to churn out propaganda that touts the training of elite military units, even as the US seeks to negotiate its exit from Afghanistan... In the latest release, the Taliban showcased what is called its “Quick Assault Team,” which is part of its special forces. While these training videos are often mocked, including by the spokesman for Resolute Support and US Forces – Afghanistan, the graduates from these camps have been effective at battling Afghan security forces. Taliban units have defeated Afghan National Army Commandos and Special Forces in multiple battles over the past several years. The Taliban published 32 photographs of the Quick Assault Team in various stages of training. The photographs were released on Voice of Jihad’s Pashto language website on Aug. 20. Voice of Jihad is the official website of the Taliban. In one photograph the Taliban fighters were shown wearing T-shirts emblazoned with the logo of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the name of the Taliban’s government in waiting, with the words “Quick Assault Team” and “Special Forces” printed below. The Taliban fighters were outfitted with new uniforms, boots, and gear, and their weapons appear to be well-maintained. More than two dozen fighters were present in the training photographs. The location of the camp was not disclosed. The camp is called the Salahuddin Ayubi Military Camp, according to Zabihullah Muhajid, an official Taliban spokesman. If it is located in Afghanistan, its existence further highlights the deteriorating security situation in the country – with the Taliban operating in the open and unafraid of retaliation from US forces by air or ground. If it is in Pakistan, then it underscores that country’s unwavering support for the Taliban. The Taliban has promoted the training of its so-called special forces in the past. In Jan. 2019, the Taliban released images from its Mahmud Ghaznawi Military Camp, which it said trains its “Commando Mujahidin.” In Nov. 2017, it advertised the existence of its “Special Forces Unit.” In June 2015, a series of photographs purporting to show the Taliban’s “special forces”  circulated on Twitter. Additionally, the Taliban controls 66 of Afghanistan 407 districts and contests 192 more, according to an ongoing study by FDD’s Long War Journal. The Taliban’s special forces often lead the charge to take these districts.
Repudiating Globalism
Arnold Ahlert:  When the stock market cratered in 2008, America’s ruling class bailed out Wall Street — and Europe — at the expense of Main Street. In 2016, Britain voted 52% to 48% to leave the EU. For the last three years, that vote has been ignored. Also in 2016, the American public decided they’d had enough of an increasingly unbearable status quo and put a political novice in the White House. That status quo was globalism, which remains the primary threat to the well-being of our nation.

In a highly insightful column, American Greatness editor Chris Buskirk illuminates what ordinary Americans are really up against, courtesy of transnational elitists whose see countries, patriotism, and a significant portion of their fellow Americans as anachronistic, or beneath contempt. Globalists are “citizens of the world,” and if their profits and “principles” are served by hollowing out middle America, or accommodating the Chinese military while snubbing our own, so be it.

Buskirk explains the origins of their mindset. “All of us share a rich heritage that is under attack by a pernicious idea as old as human history,” he writes. “It is the idea with which the serpent tempted Eve, it is the idea that man can be his own god.”

He goes on to identify the chief characteristics of this megalomania. Globalism is an “advanced form of secular liberalism” that is “messianic” and “dehumanizing.” Those who challenge its supremacy? They are “shamed, deplatformed, ostracized, and often made unemployable,” he adds.

Yet the most revealing part of the globalism centers around its “materialist, man-centered nature.” Why? Because that nature makes globalist elites “overtly hostile to Biblical religion and the family, both of which represent competing power centers and must therefore be degraded or destroyed.”

Thus, “bitter clingers” who have the temerity to resist making cakes celebrating same-sex weddings must be sued — and sued again — even after the Supreme Court rules in favor of First Amendment religious protections. Public schools must embrace the transgender agenda, even at the kindergarten level, while teaching American students to hold their own nation in contempt. Alternative lifestyles, are promoted as being equal, if not superior, to the nuclear family, even as the nuclear family itself has been eviscerated by the Nanny State.

Moreover, the rise of another pernicious concept, “identity politics,” is no accident. Keeping the “peasants” distracted by race, gender, and sexual identity is designed to keep “the wage-earning classes, meaning, almost everyone — from focusing on the fact that real wages have stagnated for nearly 50 years while the price of the three largest expenditures in life (housing, education, and healthcare) have soared,” Buskirk explains.

The peasants’ primary supporter? The concerted effort by the globalist-run, Democrat Media Complex to convince  the nation that President Donald Trump is a racist has been unrelenting. And because it hasn’t worked out quite as well as expected, he is now a “white supremacist” — a term not only applied to Trump but to everyone who   voted for him. That leftists can say this despite the reality that many of those same voters opted for Barack scumbag/liar-nObama — twice — is indicative of the utter contempt they have for the average American’s ability to notice such monumental hypocrisy.

That contempt is driven by the globalist reduction of humanity itself to economic terms, whereby people become nothing more than interchangeable cogs in the globalist machinery. They also become expendable. Note the globalist antipathy toward Trump’s effort to reform an intellectual property-stealing and militarily belligerent China via tariffs, despite the reality that its government stands on the verge of crushing populist dissent in Hong Kong. Globalists are no doubt concerned — but only with the economic implications.

Make that economic implications directly related to their own interests. By stark contrast, columnist Pat Buchanan  reveals what three decades of globalism have wrought economically for ordinary Americans: “$12 trillion in trade deficits and a loss of 70,000 factories and 5 million manufacturing jobs.”

Social costs have been egregious as well: “more divorces, more consumer debt, more children raising themselves because their mother is forced to work outside the home to make ends meet, and a declining fertility rate,” Buskirk explains. “Across Europe and the United States, citizens are not having enough children to replace themselves.”

The globalist “solution” to decreasing domestic populations? Rather than incentivize child-bearing, globalists embrace unfettered immigration, both legal and illegal. Anyone who disagrees is “bigoted” and “xenophobic.” Ironically, the same globalists talk about the ascension of job-killing artificial intelligence, and yet again the “solution” they propose for that problem isn’t limiting immigration. It’s Universal Basic Income, absent any concern for the dignity-sapping implications it engenders.

After all, what “interchangeable cog” wouldn’t be content with “free money?”

Buskirk believes the time is ripe for a wholesale assault on the status quo, and the keys are reviving the institutions that used to form the bedrock of the nation. They include family, religion and real life friends as opposed to the orchestrated diminishment of friendship wrought by social media. He also proposes the abolition of post-war globalist institutions that were founded by the United States but “have become destructive and actually undermine the peace and prosperity of the American nation and degrade human life here and abroad.” It’s hard to argue with the two examples he cites, namely the United Nations and the European Union.

His boldest proposal? Breaking the two-income family “trap” by proposing a “‘Family Deal’ that will reorder the American economy in a way that allows a family of five or six to be solidly middle class on a single income and that emphasizes growth through innovation rather than financialization,” he asserts.

These are excellent ideas, but the bet here is none them are attainable until we recognize one of the most serious problems this nation has ever faced: We now have at least two generations of Americans who are virtually unable to make the distinction between real life and cyberspace — or at the very least, willing to give both an equal measure of importance.

As result of this unprecedented development, a metastatic level of social dysfunction has taken hold, manifesting itself as “look at me” narcissism, pathological “copy-cat-ism,” and sexually debilitating isolationism, even as the tech companies engage in what Buskirk defines as “surveillance capitalism” that for all intents and purposes keeps people in line in a way that makes George Orwell’s 1984 seem benign by comparison.

In short, this nation must address what the tech elitist-driven wholesale destruction of privacy is really doing to the human psyche, no matter how many dopamine-inducing “likes” ultimately end up on the ash heap of history. Restricting the access of social media to those over the age of 18, much like we restrict access to alcohol, is a great way to begin. More important, a law restricting the tech titans from accessing a minor’s data, much like Google currently does with impunity in America’s classrooms, should also be enacted.

In short, globalism is totalitarianism with better PR. If America is to remain a sovereign nation it must be thoroughly repudiated.
