Memo to Deep Statist John McCain: YOU are ‘helping Putin’ with this bogus ‘Russia collusion’ probe YOU HELPED START

By J. D. Heyes, editor-in-chief

(National SentinelAid and Abet: There is one thing we can deduce from Friday’s release of the infamous “FISA memo,” thanks to heroes and champions of government accountability and transparency in Congress and the White House: It’s now confirmed that the Obama administration was the most corrupt in the history of our country.

There’s no denying that, despite the fact that Democrats continue to do so and will continue to do so for as long as they draw a breath.

But they’re not the only enemies of government and political accountability. Not by a long shot. In fact, one of their best allies is in the U.S. Senate, and — technically speaking anyway — he’s not even a member of their party.

That would be Deep Statist Sen. John McCain, RINO-Arizona. Rather than cheer the release of the memo, which revealed serial abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court by upper echelon officials in the FBI and Justice Department to prevent Donald J. Trump from becoming president, and to undermine him after he defeated Hillary Clinton in November 2016, he criticized it.

“The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests – no party’s, no president’s, only [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s,” McCain said in a statement. “Our nation’s elected officials, including the president, must stop looking at this investigation through the warped lens of politics and manufacturing partisan sideshows. If we continue to undermine our own rule of law, we are doing Putin’s job for him.”

Why would he do that? Well, for one, McCain is a #nevertrumper; ever since the president insulted his Vietnam service, most of which was spent in a brutal North Vietnamese prison, the senior Arizona senator has had it in for Trump. (Granted, Trump shouldn’t have done that, but lest we forget, McCain had already begun savaging his presidential bid, so our president — always the counter-puncher — hit back.)

For another, let’s not forget that McCain gave his Deep State buddy former FBI director James Comey a copy of the bogus “Trump dossier” — the same one that was misrepresented as “intelligence” and used to secure an October 2016 surveillance warrant from the FISA court so the bureau could spy on the Trump campaign.

As reported by The National Sentinel:

…[A]s many suspected, the discredited and unverified “Trump dossier” was used not once but on three separate occasions to secure a FISA court surveillance warrant to allow the Obama administration to spy on Team Trump during his campaign.

As Fox News added, the FISA memo also “includes testimony from a high-ranking government official who says without the infamous Trump dossier, the FBI and DOJ would not have secured surveillance warrants to spy on at least one member of the Trump team.”

The memo further pointed out that in December 2017, then-FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe testified that “no surveillance warrant would have been sought” from the FISA court “without the Steele dossier information.” (Related: SHAMELESS: No Democrats or left-leaning publishers denounce shocking abuses of power detailed in FISA memo release)

Think about that. McCain helped to enable the whole thing. McCain helped enable illegal spying on an American citizen — former Trump campaign foreign policy advisor Carter Page — by supplying the dossier to the FBI.

So Obama could spy on the presidential nominee of his own party.

“The ‘dossier’ compiled by Christopher Steele (Steele dossier) on behalf of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton campaign formed an essential part of the Carter Page FISA application,” the memo states.

“Steele was a longtime FBI source who was paid over $160,000 by the DNC and Clinton campaign, via the law firm Perkins Coie and research fir Fusion GPS, to obtain derogatory information on Donald Trump?s ties to Russia,” it continued.

How likely is it that McCain — still butt-hurt over Trump’s insult — didn’t know the dossier was a political document, that it was just opposition research and not actual intelligence?

In his statement, McCain claimed that releasing the memo was “helping Putin” to ‘undermine our democracy.” Actually, senator, saddling our president with fake charges of “Russian collusion” have helped Putin “undermine our democracy.”

Which means Deep Statists like you are helping the enemy — not Trump.

The Pentagon Papers vs. the FISA Memo: That nostalgic time when the ‘mainstream media’ really GAVE A DAMN about government transparency

analysis
By J. D. Heyes, editor-in-chief

(National SentinelPoliticization: Last month a new movie hit theaters around the country starring, among others, Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep called “The Post.”

The movie is about, according to IMDB.com, “a cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents [and] pushed the country’s first female newspaper publisher and a hard-driving editor to join an unprecedented battle between the press and the government.”

The film traces the Washington Post’s reporting on the “Pentagon Papers,” which were officially titled, “United States – Vietnam Relations, 1945–1967: A Study Prepared by the Department of Defense.” The study, which was conducted in secret without informing President Lyndon Johnson, was commissioned in 1967 by then-Defense Secretary Robert McNamara. The papers noted that the Johnson administration had systematically lied to the American people about its involvement in Vietnam.

Initially, the papers were released by Daniel Ellsberg, who had worked on the study; the existence of the papers was first reported in 1971 by The New York Times during the Nixon administration. The Times was threatened with legal action by the government and Ellsberg was charged with conspiracy, espionage, and theft of government property (charges that were later dismissed).

Soon after the Times report, the Post was given a copy of the Pentagon Papers by Ellsberg, who approached reporter Ben Bagdikian. He then brought the information to Post editor Ben Bradlee (played by Hanks in the film “The Post”). He subsequently informed the Post’s publisher, Kay Graham (played by Streep), and in short order, the decision was made to begin publishing a series of articles detailing the papers.

Assistant U.S. Attorney General William Rehnquist — later U.S. Supreme Court chief justice — asked the Post to cease publication, but the paper’s management refused. Rehnquist then asked a federal court to block the paper from publishing any additional materials taken from the papers but the court refused; the government appealed the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled 6-3 on June 30, 1971, against the government and for the Post (and a dozen or so other papers that had begun publishing portions of the Pentagon Papers).

At the time the information contained in the Pentagon Papers was truly explosive. The country was still fighting the Vietnam War, tens of thousands of U.S. service personnel had already been killed, and it grew deeply unpopular the longer it went on. Throw into that mix the late 1960s-early 1970s social upheaval on college campuses against the old traditional order, and the discovery that the government had lied the entire time about its involvement in Southeast Asia was devastating to the country.

And yet, journalists back then correctly decided that the American people had the right know they had been duped by their government.

Today, however, some of the same media outlets are siding with Democrats against the release of a report — against transparency — that promises to be equally damaging to the American psyche: The so-called FISA Memo, which purports to show Obama-era abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in order to manipulate judges with a bogus “Trump dossier” in order to secure a warrant so Hillary Clinton-aligned operatives within FBI and DOJ could spy on the Trump campaign.

Yesterday’s quest for government transparency from the Times, the Post and other legacy media outlets has transformed into partisan attacks and calls for outright secrecy these days because the “wrong” political party is about to be implicated in a massive abuse of government institutions and the people’s trust.

Just to show you the difference between today’s Democrats and Democrats at the time the Pentagon Papers were making headlines, former U.S. Sen. Mike Gravel, D-Alaska, the lawmaker who introduced the Pentagon Papers to the public by entering them into the official Congressional Record, said Republicans will demonstrate “the height of cowardice” if they refuse to release the FISA memo.

My, how times have changed. If the Times, the Post, and a few other legacy media outlets were all that existed today, as was the case in 1971, Americans would never discover how badly they’ve been lied to — again — by their government. This is another reason to celebrate the independent media.

Flashback: Obama admin deliberately put firearms into the hands of drug dealers who killed more people than died in Las Vegas

By J. D. Heyes, editor-in-chief

(National SentinelCartel Control: Left-wing Democrats and their hypocrite allies in Hollywood and the media have blamed Republicans, conservatives, the NRA, and the Trump administration for what happened in Las Vegas last weekend, with many actually blaming the noted and respected gun rights organization for putting the guns Stephen Paddock used to kill 58 people and wound 500-plus more in his hands.

“The NRA should be put on trial,” I saw one idiot post on Twitter.

“Shame on @GOP for supporting MURDER,” wrote another.

There were many more examples, but you get the drift. And while I’m sure at least some of the posts came from bot accounts, far too many no doubt came from real people who actually believe that Trump supporters and the NRA support mass murder, or that Paddock — having decided to kill as many people as he could — would not have chosen to drive a panel van into the crowd instead. (Related: “Multiple shooters” reported by an Australian man staying in the room right next to Stephen Paddock at the Mandalay Bay.)

But what is particularly galling about these people is that their hero, Barack Obama, and hisadministration are liable for more deaths from guns that the former president and his attorney general, Eric Holder, willingly sent to murderous, dangerous Mexican drug cartels.

As noted by legal watchdog group Judicial Watch in a May 2016 press release, weapons trafficked to the cartels via the Justice Department’s “Fast and Furious” gun-walking operation “have been widely used by major Mexican cartels.”

According to Justice Department records the watchdog had newly obtained, in the three previous years a total of 94 Fast and Furious guns have been recovered by Mexican authorities in the capital of Mexico City, as well as in 12 Mexican states, “with the majority being seized in Sonora, Chihuahua and Sinaloa.” Of the weapons recovered, 12 were rifles and 12 were pistols, all of which were identified as guns trafficked south of the border by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which falls under the control of DoJ.

Further, reports tie the guns to some 69 murders — more than the number of people killed in Vegas, and by a man who bought his weapons legally.

Judicial Watch noted further:

Fast and Furious was a Department of Justice Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) “gunrunning” operation in which the Obama administration allowed guns to be sold to Mexican drug cartels in the hope the weapons would be recovered at crime scenes.  Fast and Furious weapons have been implicated in the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and hundreds of other innocents in Mexico.  Prior reports tie Fast and Furious weapons to at least 200 deaths in Mexico alone.

“These documents show President Obama’s legacy includes one of gunrunning and violence in Fast and Furious,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “As the production of documents from the ATF continues, we expect to see even further confirmation of Obama’s disgraced former Attorney General Eric Holder’s prediction that Fast and Furious guns will be used in crimes for years to come.”

What’s even more heinous about Fast and Furious was the motivation behind it. Congressional investigators and investigative journalists discovered that the Obama administration launched the operation as a way to push for more gun control.

In December 2011, then-CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson reported that documents she obtained showed “that the [BATF] discussed using their covert operation…to argue for controversial new rules about guns sales.”

Attkisson reported further:

On July 14, 2010, after ATF headquarters in Washington D.C. received an update on Fast and Furious, ATF Field Ops Assistant Director Mark Chait emailed Bill Newell, ATF’s Phoenix Special Agent in Charge of Fast and Furious:

“Bill – can you see if these guns were all purchased from the same (licensed gun dealer) and at one time. We are looking at anecdotal cases to support a demand letter on long gun multiple sales. Thanks.” 

So in other words, Obama’s and Holder’s ATF secretly encouraged U.S.-based gun dealers to sell multiple weapons to straw buyers purchasing on behalf of the cartels so those guns would be used in crimes and murders giving the administration a reason to push for new gun control laws.

That’s not just sick, it’s criminal.

So the next time you hear some lib whine to you about Vegas and the NRA, remind them of their hero’s multiple death sentences of Mexican citizens.

Did your unborn baby survive Hurricane Harvey? It’s time to KILL it, says one abortion provider

By J. D. Heyes, editor-in-chief

(National SentinelPro-Death: In a blatant affront to the sensibilities of pro-Life Americans, one Texas-based abortion provider is offering its services free to pregnant women who managed to survive Hurricane Harvey.

As reported by Mediate, a misnamed group called Whole Women’s Health, which allegedly exists to provide “health services” to women whose mothers did not elect to kill them before they were born, became infamous in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark 2016 decision regarding Texas laws that targeted abortion providers.

After Texas lawmakers passed legislation dramatically restricting abortion clinic operations in the state, the group sued and won; the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Texas law was ‘unconstitutional’ in that it imposed ‘medically unnecessary restrictions.’

So while other Texas laws do place other requirements and restrictions on the procedure — a woman cannot legally get an abortion in the state after 20 weeks’ gestation — clinics can still operate, and, as you might have guessed, Whole Women’s Health is one of them.

And now, clinic operators are using the Harvey disaster as a sort of recruiting platform to kill more unborn children. According to a blog post on the organization’s website, Whole Women’s Health will provide “no-cost abortions for patients affected by Hurricane Harvey” — whatever that means — “for the month of September.”

“We want to help. Call us,” the post continued.

The group complained about restrictive Texas laws, and said that the storm was making it even more difficult to get the procedure, having damaged and closed other clinics:

Unfortunately, we know all too well that abortion can be difficult to access in some parts of the country, especially in Texas. There are already so many barriers to access this necessary procedure, and natural disasters stand in the way of women getting to their appointment and/or being able to afford care.

“[W]e can do more. Texas women deserve it,” said the post.

Apparently their unborn children “deserve” what they’re going to get, as well. (Related: Planned Parenthood president caught haggling to get the best profit selling organs from aborted babies.)

“Continued political attacks on abortion access make an unwanted pregnancy particularly stressful in Texas — add that to the stress of dealing with hurricane aftermath,” the post continues. “We can only imagine what a stressful time this must be for those patients who had to miss their appointments or are waiting for the nearest clinic to open.”

Now mind you, in far-Left states run by liberal Democrats, it’s perfectly okay for legislators to choose not to regulate abortion in ways that pro-death advocates would support. But apparently, if lawmakers in red states like, say, Texas, decide they cannot in good conscience make it easier to destroy human life, they’re viewed as Neanderthals, “anti-choice,” and “anti-women.”

How about pro-baby?

You know, the persons most at risk in cases of abortion are the ones who have no say whatsoever in what happens to them: The unborn child.

Yes, yes, I get the whole “to save the woman’s life” argument and all, but for the vast majority of cases abortions are not performed to “save” the life of the mother (which is a misnomer because you actually have to have a child before you can be a “mother”); they are purely elective. Voluntary. Used as an “out” for bad planning, bad behavior, or just plain bad luck. It happens.

That’s what makes claims by pro-abortion groups that they primarily exist for “women’s health” particularly galling: It’s not inherently unhealthy to be pregnant. It’s a natural condition. It’s procreation. It’s not a “health” issue at all, in the regular sense of the word.

Taking advantage of a natural disaster to sow more death in a country where far too many people are far more concerned with saving the life of an animal than they are the life of a human being is disgusting, but par for the course when it comes to the “progressive” Left.

Then again, the proliferation of abortion has led to the cheapening of human life, so what are we to expect?

Bill Maher mocks Texas storm victims because that’s what pinheads do

daily-rant-logo

(National Sentinel) Political Warfare: This column is no holds barred, so if you’re sensitive to raw language, it’s probably best you not read it.

HBO’s Bill Maher makes his living saying outrageous, stupid, and demonstrably false things, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the far-Left “Real Time” host singled out Texans still recovering from Hurricane Harvey for derision and mocking on his Friday show.

Arguing that it isn’t fair for “responsible” people like him and the rest of the brain-dead, pampered, and self-righteous asshats who inhabit his entertainment world and who, like him, believe in the hoax of human-caused climate change, to have to pay more in taxes to bail out non-believers when they are victimized by violent storms of the kind that have been victimizing humans since the dawn of time.

“[T]hese places that got flooded, like Texas, okay, they have a low tax base. So, the federal government bails them out. Their governors, their legislators they don’t believe in climate science. It seems like the responsible folks in this country, the people who pay a little more taxes and the people who believe in climate change are bailing out the people who hate government, except when they need government when they’re in trouble. That seems a little unfair,” said Maher.

“Suddenly, socialism is not such a bad idea when you’re standing in toxic floodwater,” he added.

Har, har, har, Bill! That was a good one! Who wrote that for you?

Fuckstick.

First of all, without the state of Texas and its vital infrastructure, your miserable existence and those of your “fans” would be more miserable — and a shit ton more expensive. Texas just happens to be home to the majority of our oil and gas industry, as well as the production center for ethylene, a basic chemical element, for the entire country. It is the primary chemical ingredient in the manufacture of plastics that are pervasive in U.S. consumer goods.

Now, Bill, before you start mouthing off about how those Texas industries are exactly what is creating or perpetuating all of this “climate change” and “global warming,” I want to ask you: What products that are necessary to perpetuate your lavish lifestyle are you willing to give up in order to live your Church of Global Warming faith? Because pretty much every piece of equipment involved in producing your show and sustaining your pampered-ass life uses one or both of the principle products that are manufactured or processed in Texas.

Also, do you fucking walk your ass to work everyday or do you take some sort of vehicle? Because even if it’s an electric vehicle, it uses electricity mostly produced by something other than a wind or solar farm. And oh, by the way, everything in electric (and gas-powered) cars involves ethylene in the manufacturing process, you dipshit.

The thing is, Bill, nobody is disputing that the climate is changing. The fucking climate has always changed. You Marxist assholes just thought you were so clever changing the term from “global warming” to “climate change” when people figured out the earth really isn’t warming, so they stopped believing your bullshit. ‘Hey, the climate’s always changing, right? Let’s say that instead! Heh, heh, heh….’

Where realists differ is in the reasoning behind the changing climate patterns. You Left-wing idiots want to use every goddamned storm as “proof” of “human-caused climate change,” but how the fuck do you explain millions of years’ worth of violent storms and changing weather — long before humans began walking upright, let alone making cars and building factories?

Hell, how do you explain the violent storms that struck Texas shortly after the turn of the 20th century, well before the peak of the Industrial Revolution? How do you explain that fact that haven’t had storms of this magnitude for years?

You can’t fucking explain it.

But then again, you don’t really want to, do you? For cowards like you it’s easier to believe in a hoax so you will be loved and adored by similar idiots than do the hard work of research and stand on facts. There is no hard and fast, replicable evidence to prove humans are screwing up the climate on planet Earth, and frankly, it’s pretty fucking arrogant to assume we even have that power.

And socialism? Bill, do you really want to live in a full-on socialist country? Because if you do, fuck man, buy a plane ticket and a plot of land and move your ass to the socialist paradise of your choosing. Canada’s not that far away and I hear their leader is also a member of the Church of Global Warming and Climate Change. Hell, he may even be a preacher.

Taking a shit on people who have just lost every fucking thing they have ain’t funny, ain’t clever, and it’s not appropriate. As for “tax bases,” how many times have taxpayers from all states had to pony up to send billions to California when Mother Nature wakes up grouchy in the Golden State? And didn’t taxpayers pony up to help pay for emergency response to New Jersey and New York after Superstorm Sandy a few years back?

So you see, Bill, we all have our weather crosses to bear. Even deep blue states run by idiot Leftists can’t cover all of their expenses, either. So if you think your stupid ass is being treated unfairly for, you know, being an American, then I’ve got some free advice for you: Get. The. Fuck. Out.

Go find some socialist shithole to live in. When you get there, though, don’t drive, don’t use any chemicals or any petroleum products at all because they likely originated in Texas, and Texans don’t pay enough in taxes to earn disaster relief. As a true believer in your church, that’s heresy.

You fucking asshole.

Hillary Clinton is a pathetic excuse for a human being

daily-rant-logo

(National SentinelPolitical Warfare: This column is no holds barred, so if you’re sensitive to raw language, it’s probably best you not read it.

Like a bad penny — or that smell you experience when you walk into a house full of cats — Hillary Clinton just won’t go away.

read-here-first-FO-160x600The twice-failed Democratic presidential contender and head of household during her philandering husband’s presidency has “written” a new book titled, “What Happened,” which she attempts to pathetically assign blame to everyone else but herself for losing the 2016 election to a guy who, just a couple of years ago, was flinging people out of a wrestling ring and firing dickheads and criminals on his top-rated show, “The Apprentice.”

Her loss was Bernie Sanders’ fault. It was James Comey’s fault. It was Russian collusion that did her in. The DNC didn’t give her enough money. It was Facebook. It was misogyny.  It was Twitter bots. It was little green men from some distant planet. And about a dozen other things.

Hey, Hillary, let me clue you in on why you really lost: Because you’re the most pathetic, corrupt, and disgusting bitch who has ever darkened the American political scene and, considering your competition, that’s saying something. That you’re now blaming everyone and anyone else for your loss is tantamount to this truth.

What’s more, your incessant bitching about your loss months after everyone else on the planet would have fucking gotten over it is so over-the-top that your own piece of shit party is now beginning to disown you.

You’re like dogshit on the bottom of their shoes; you stink, and no matter how hard they try to rub you off, you cling like glue. They can’t get rid of you, and sadly, neither can the rest of us.

I’m fairly certain that the “dumbest son-of-a-bitch” award this year should go to the editor at Simon & Schuster, Clinton’s publisher, for agreeing to put out her latest screed. The last one, “Hard Choices,” was a cut-and-paste, ghostwritten piece of shit that didn’t sell well, though a number of books lambasting the most crooked politician ever have done just fine.

Which brings me to this point: Clinton shouldn’t even be able to breathe free air to contract out a new book; she should be in a fucking courtroom right now having to defend her guilty ass from a pile of charges all related to her use of a private email server so she could hide the fact that she was fleecing foreign governments for Clinton Foundation cash. That former FBI Director James Comey is one of the people she blames for her election loss would be funny as hell if it wasn’t so utterly contemptible, considering he’s the dishonest deep state prick who refused to do his job and recommend she be charged for violating just about every national security statute on the books.

Granted, another dishonest POS, Loretta Lynch, probably wasn’t going to charge Clinton anyway because Democrats suck and because their boss, Barry Obama, was just about as corrupt as Clinton. Nevertheless, most Americans expected more and should have gotten it.

So it’s just a little maddening to hear this whiny piece of shit bitch and moan about losing an election when the reason why she lost is because she’s Hillary Clinton.

As for her latest book, if you’re like me, you are insulted not simply by the fact that Clinton blames everyone else for her loss, but because she actually thinks we give a fuck what she has to say about anything at this point. Just when the country believes it has moved on from the nightmare that was the Clintons, here comes one of them — again — to remind us just how fucking stupid we were to have ever put them on the national stage to begin with.

Hillary, whoever keeps telling you that you’re relevant and that America cannot get along without you — Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, or some fucking little voice whispering in your head — stop listening to them. They’re full of shit.

And if this is just you being you as part of your usual self-absorbed, self-important existence, I’d like to do you the favor of providing sage, frank advice: Don’t go away mad, Hillary, just go away.

And feel damned lucky you’re not getting hammered by some chick named Steve in the slammer, you dishonest, crooked bitch.

Trump gives GOP the middle finger, does debt-and-relief deal with Democrats

daily-rant-logo

(National SentinelPresidential Leadership: This column is no holds barred, so if you’re sensitive to raw language, it’s probably best you not read it.

I despise the Democratic Party because it is replete with pricks like this, but sometimes you gotta do a deal with the devil to make the point to others that you’re not fucking around anymore — you’re trying to work for the people.

The Wall Street Journal reported this morning that Republicans are stunned — stunned! — that Trump made a deal with Democratic leaders on a three-month debt ceiling extension that includes emergency funding for Hurricane Harvey (and, soon no doubt, Hurricane Irma) victims.

The paper noted:

President Donald Trump stunned Republicans on Wednesday when he overrode pleas from GOP congressional leaders and sided with Democrats on a proposal to attach emergency aid for Hurricane Harvey victims to measures to keep the government funded and its borrowing limit suspended until mid-December.

Mr. Trump’s decision to strike a deal with Democrats upended the partisan alliances that have long set the boundaries of congressional policy-making, opening up new possibilities for bipartisan deal-making if Democrats can again persuade Mr. Trump to bypass Republican leaders.

For months, Mr. Trump had suggested that he might work with Democrats if Republicans couldn’t advance his legislative priorities, but he always pulled back at the last minute. The Republican president’s move Wednesday raised questions about whether he will now turn to Democrats to reach deals on tax reform and immigration.

The paper went onto claim that the Democrat deal-making is only likely to further “inflame” Trump’s relationship with Republican leaders, noting that earlier, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., called Democrats’ proposal to combine Harvey aid and a three-month debt limit increase “ridiculous” and “unworkable.”

Memo to Ryan: The president just told you and that other hapless bag of wind Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to go suck a big one.

McConnell tried to play it off with reporters, telling them that Trump can “speak for himself” and that his decision to go with the Democrats’ three-month extension rather than the GOP’s 6-month extension was meant “to not create a picture of divisiveness at a time of genuine national crisis.”

Whatever. This was Trump giving the piece of shit GOP leadership — which has worked against him since he took office — the middle finger.

For seven years these ass wipes have promised, promised, promised to get rid of the Worst. Fucking. Law. Ever. — Obamacare — and when voters finally gave the GOP all they needed in controlling the House, Senate, and the White House, they refused. Thanks to those lying bitch RINOs, Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska — both of whom supported Obamacare repeal-and-replace when they fucking knew Obama wouldn’t sign it — suddenly claimed their conscience wouldn’t let them support repeal-and-replace for real because a small percentage of their constituents might lose coverage.

Never mind that tens of millions of Americans are essentially being forced to pay for a second mortgage for shitty “coverage” that comes with deductibles so high they’d have to get hit by a fucking piano falling out of a building before it pays anything.

Meanwhile, those two hypocrite scumbags continue getting taxpayer-subsidized insurance coverage and favored treatment status at any DC-area hospital. They have great coverage, so fuck the rest of us who are struggling.

And remember Trump’s skinny budget proposal? The man’s trying to salvage what’s left of our economy and save the country from total collapse thanks to decades of irresponsible, profligate spending and ‘kick the can down the road’ policymaking, only to have that asswipe John “Trump Hurt My Feelings” McCain piss all over it and declare it “dead on arrival.”

Well, fuck us, John, right? I mean, what the hell? Let’s just take the Democrats’ position and spend the country into oblivion while you and the rest of your ass-clown colleagues pad your own pocketbooks and feather your own nests making back-room deals with corporate donors who will be sure to make your life comfortable until you take your last miserable breath.

Meanwhile, the national debt you’ve helped raise is spiraling out of control — but you don’t give a fuck because you’ve got yours and besides, paying off someone else’s debt is what the “little people” are for, right? Asshole.

And let’s not forget that #nevertrump Republicans like those sanctimonious pricks Ben Sasse and Jeff Flake have been oozing up to every camera and microphone they could find to sling as much shit as they possibly could at a president who’s trying to enact the very same policies those dickheads claimed they’ve been trying to enact for years. Remember, Trump’s Cabinet has been rated the most conservative since even before Reagan, for fuck’s sake. But no. You can’t let a man who kicked GOP establishment ass in the primaries, then beat the most corrupt bitch on the planet in the main event, accomplish a goddamned thing, can you?

To anyone who understands Trump, his decision to tell ‘his party’ to go fuck themselves was inevitable. And frankly, I predict that the American people will reward him for telling the most hapless GOP cadre in modern history to eat shit and die if they continue to refuse to help him accomplish their agenda, while they exact voter revenge on obstinate, sniping, pissant Republican establishment types at the soonest ballot. That won’t mean Democrats will win a majority again, but I could see lots of brand-new Republican faces in the years ahead.

In any event, these pricks can be “stunned” all they want. Trump just showed them the back of his hand, and it was sweet to watch.

Maybe it will help, and maybe not, but Trump seems to have decided that he and not Republican leaders who are part of a Congress that is less popular than herpes has the upper hand in this relationship. And he aims to exploit it.

Like he’s done all his life, he is following the adage, “Lead, follow, or get the fuck out of the way.” The GOP Establishment Class would do well to help him lead, which is what the fuck they were given majorities to do.

The violent Left has the support of pop culture freaks, political cowards and media elite — Why you need to prepare to defend yourself

By J. D. Heyes, editor-in-chief

(National SentinelSurvival & Fitness: In case you haven’t noticed, anyone speaking out against Left-wing violence in America is quickly shouted down and branded as a racist, Nazi bigot.

Conservatives and Trump supporters have known this for months because they’ve been regularly targeted by Antifa thugs and members of BLM and the so-called “Occupy” movement anytime they show up to a free-speech rally or an event featuring our president.

The nasty business in Charlottesville has even been scripted by the “mainstream” media to have been perpetrated solely by “the Alt-Right,” even though President Donald J. Trump schooled the media jackals and cowardly Republican lawmakers and CEOs who fled like scared children from his manufacturing and business councils.

“You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent, and nobody wants to say that. But I’ll say it right now,” the president boldly and correctly stated.

“I think there’s blame on both sides. You look at both sides. I think there’s blame on both sides, and I have no doubt about it, and you don’t have any doubt about it, either. And if you reported it accurately, you would say it,” he added.

Of course, both sides were guilty, but the Left also showed up specifically to do battle with demonstrators – some of whom were white racists and bigots – because that’s their modus operandi. One Antifa organizer proudly admitted as much in a recent interview with CNN, when he said that members of the group show up at all Right-leaning events specifically to get into physical confrontations with them.

“The idea in Antifa is that we go where they (right-wingers) go. That hate speech is not free speech. That if you are endangering people with what you say and the actions that are behind them, then you do not have the right to do that,” said Scott Crow. “And so we go to cause conflict, to shut them down where they are, because we don’t believe that Nazis or fascists of any stripe should have a mouthpiece.” [Emphasis added]

Never mind that Antifa thugs think this about any and all Right-leaning political rallies and public events. They think we’re all racist bigots when, of course, nothing could be further from the truth.

But you read for yourself the group’s stated intentions: To show up wherever someone is speaking whom they don’t like, and “cause conflict” and violence. Even Reuters reported Wednesday:

At the weekend rally against the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee, commander of the pro-slavery Confederate army during the U.S. Civil War, many participants were seen carrying firearms, sticks, shields, and lit torches. Some wore helmets.

Counter-protesters came equipped with sticks, helmets and shields[Emphasis added]

Even the Washington Post and other “mainstream” media outlets are openly promoting political violence. Under the guise of “analysis” of events in Charlottesville, N.D.B. Connolly, a history professor at Johns Hopkins, openly called for rioting (which used to be against the law) by encouraging Left-wing activists and liberals to “start throwing rocks.”

So, you know when the “mainstream” begins sympathizing with rock-throwers and organizations that under any other circumstance would qualify as Left-wing domestic terrorists, that politically-related violence isn’t going away anytime soon.

Which is precisely why you should not only anticipate it, but prepare for it.

Charlottesville is beginning to look a lot like a Leftist set-up

(National SentinelCulture war: During ESPN’s First Take program on Tuesday, longtime network personality Steven A. Smith, who is black, threw down the race card as he lectured viewers about the ethnic nuances of the First Amendment.

As Breitbart News reported, Smith was complaining about a statement made by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who is white, when responding to a question about players sitting or engaging in some other act of protest during the playing of the National Anthem, which occurs before each and every game.

“The national anthem is a special moment for me. It’s a point of pride. That is a really important moment but we also have to understand the other side — that people do have rights, and we want to respect those,” he said when speaking to Arizona Cardinals season ticket holders.

Goodell went on to note that he had visited with New York Jets fans a week before, and a player whom he did not identify was asked the same thing. The player, the commissioner recalled, said there was “a time and a place” to engage in protest.

“That’s what we all have to, sort of, understand — the responsibility of doing it at the right time and in the right way,” Goodell said.

Well, that set Smith off.

“Roger Goodell is not the man to make that statement,” Smith claimed.

Really, Steven? How come?

“I’m going to say something that’s going to be controversial. I don’t give a damn,” he said. “No white person has the right to tell black folks when you should protest about something. Because usually protests that emanates from the black community is due in large part because of the transgressions exacted against that community by those who don’t happen to be black.”

Translated: If you’re not black, then shut up about this.

The thing is Roger Goodell never said: “Blacks can’t protest the National Anthem.” But because Steven A. Smith has so conditioned himself to see hatred and racism under every rock, he took the NFL commissioner’s very neutral statement as some sort of attack on black players (most of the players in the NFL are black. By far most of those who are protesting the anthem by not standing and placing their hands over their hearts are black).

You people don’t tell my people what to do, think or say. Only my people can tell my people what to do, think or say.

Well, here’s the problem with that kind of thinking: We can’t all be Americans if only part of us want to be. (Related: Are we nearing civil war?)

The American Right is certainly not blameless, but the bulk of today’s violent political division has been inculcated, spread and fomented by the Marxist Left, Charlottesville notwithstanding.

Bankrolled by extremist billionaires like George Soros, Alt-Left groups like Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street and others have sprung up in recent years, attacking American history and traditions as illegitimate, corrupt and ideologically inferior. Their members show up at political rallies and events with the specific goal of shutting down speech they have deemed “racist” and “bigoted,” even though it’s not.

One Antifa organizer told CNN: “The idea in Antifa is that we go where they (right-wingers) go. That hate speech is not free speech. That if you are endangering people with what you say and the actions that are behind them, then you do not have the right to do that.

“And so we go to cause conflict, to shut them down where they are, because we don’t believe that Nazis or fascists of any stripe should have a mouthpiece.”

That is precisely Steven A. Smith’s mentality, as well as the mentality of those who agree with him. They really believe that certain Americans — be it due to their skin color, political beliefs, cultural leanings or social attitudes — don’t have a right to express themselves under the same First Amendment they use, and that they, by some divine authority, have been empowered to decide what speech and what viewpoints are valid.

The Left’s goal is nothing short of the complete overthrow of traditional America, and they’re using every means possible — race, politics and pop culture — to divide us so that they can conquer us.

They can’t be allowed to succeed.

As expected, everyone is FREAKING OUT over Trump’s ‘fire and fury’ comment to North Korea

By J. D. Heyes, editor-in-chief

(National SentinelForeign Policy: Donald J. Trump is not your normal, average politician — in case you were still wondering.

Most people aren’t, of course. They developed their opinions about Trump long ago, and now, everything he does only reinforces their viewpoints.

Trump has changed some minds, but almost none on the Left. Their view of Trump is the same as it’s always been: That he’s a caricature, a lout, a bigot, a racist and — after refusing to act like a little bitch in the face of new threats from the real unhinged leader of a country, Kim Jong-un of North Korea — a madman who “can’t be trusted with the nuclear codes.”

You may recall earlier this week when Trump threatened “fire and fury like the world’s never seen” in response to new nuclear threats from Pyongyang. To those of us who have consistently supported him, we applauded his decision to speak to a dangerous foreign leader in terms he can understand.

To the unhinged Left, however, those words were simply more proof that Trump — and not the little fat man with a bad haircut who has regularly threatened to attack us — is the real danger.

On cue, the Washington Post published a story Thursday echoing that far-Left irrationality with this headline: “With ‘fire and fury,’ Trump revives fears about his possession of nuclear codes.”

The story did include quotes from people on both sides — those emboldened by the president’s tough talk and those who are frightened of it — but the overall tone of the piece was clear: Trump is crazy, we all know it, and now he’s a loose cannon with nukes.

Sigh. If the Left is anything, it is consistent. This is the same story “progressive” journalists and pundits were telling about Ronald Reagan in the 1980s, when he also refused to be a little bitch who backed down from the big Soviet bear. Conservative writer and author Cal Thomas, commenting on Hillary Clinton’s “recycled speech” in accepting the Democratic Party presidential nomination last year, wrote:

The same was said about Ronald Reagan in 1980. Democrats called him a “cowboy” who might blow up the world. Instead, he rebuilt America’s military, as Trump has promised to do, and helped bring down the Soviet Union. Can Hillary be trusted with classified documents?

Then of course, there was that time that her president husband, Bill, actually lost the nuclear codes, and didn’t bother to tell anyone.

So none of this is “new” news, per se; it’s just the Left being the Left — predictable, dishonest, and wrong.

What should Trump have said and done, you ask? Well, according to the establishment types in D.C., Trump the rube should shut up and let the professional diplomats handle this. Because you know, just sitting down and rationally talking to a madman who is likely certifiably insane is the way ‘things are done’ when dealing with such people.

Like when Clinton and his people made their “nuclear deal” with North Korea in 1994. Remember? That “Agreed Framework” was sold as a diplomatic home run; North Korea began violating it almost immediately, telling the Bush administration in 2002 that it possessed a uranium enrichment program it was not supposed to have under the agreement.

Now here we are, 20-odd years later, and North Korea is not testing but building nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them. Oh, and is threatening to use them — against us.

The same thinking gave us the Iran nuclear “deal” too, by the way. I’ll just leave that there.

What should Trump do — beg them to play nice? Send more diplomats? Ask for forgiveness for being leader of the free world? Ignore U.S. security commitments to allies Japan and South Korea?

Or tell the little sum-bitch running North Korea if he doesn’t knock off the bullshit, the president of the United States will protect and defend the American people by lighting his ass up?

The Left seems to think the former is the proper course, apparently.

But rational, thinking Americans who understand it takes a strong leader to lead a strong country see Trump’s defiance of bitch-dom as not only the right move, but a move that is long overdue.

The United States possesses enough power to destroy North Korea 1,000 times over; why would any American think the president — any president — should project weakness instead? And why would anyone want to leave this situation to the same Ivy League idiots whose “diplomacy” got us into this mess to begin with?

It’s a dangerous world out there. We can’t afford to be weak or look weak. Trump instinctively knows this. And while his bellicose warnings to a little man with a little country may scare the bejesus out of the Left-wing, Trump-hating snowflakes at the Post, real Americans understand we need a strong, confident leader who isn’t afraid to stand up to global bullies, idiots and even great powers who constantly seek to exploit weakness.

Any serious practitioner of foreign policy and diplomacy knows you never negotiate from a position of weakness. The jackals at the Post and every State Department weenie recoiling at Trump’s boldness have either forgotten that golden rule or never knew and understood it in the first place.

Secession: CALEXIT supporters can now start gathering signatures

(National SentinelStates: Supporters of California secession, known as “CALEXIT,” is proceeding apace.

The Sacramento Bee reported that supporters can now begin gathering signatures for a ballot initiative that, if the threshold is met, will place the issue before voters at the next election cycle:

The state attorney general issued an official ballot measure title and summary Tuesday. The campaign can now start gathering the more than 585,000 signatures it will need to qualify for the 2018 ballot.

The initiative would form a commission to recommend avenues for California to pursue its independence and delete part of the state constitution that says it is an inseparable part of the U.S. The measure would also instruct the governor and California congressional delegation to negotiate more autonomy for the state.

At one point, a third of California residents supported leaving the union.

A new e-book by The National Sentinel editor J. D. Heyes supports a state’s right to secede, despite the widespread belief that the issue was “settled” by the Civil War.

“This short e-book provides a fresh perspective, based upon historical evidence, at how a long-dismissed concept of settling irreconcilable political differences is just as relevant today as it was in the 19th century,” said Heyes. “If there are those among us who truly believe they can no longer, in good conscience, coexist, then they ought to be given the opportunity to go their own way, peacefully. This e-book charts that course, from the beginning of our history, through today’s growing unrest.”

Carl Bernstein: ‘Cold civil war’ exists in nation seething with resentment, mistrust — and the media isn’t helping

(National SentinelPolitics & Media: Former Washington Post reporter and Watergate legend Carl Bernstein made a salient observation on Sunday’s otherwise misnamed “Reliable Sources” program on CNN: Our country is hopelessly divided along political lines, and the “mainstream media” is only fanning the flames.

Describing today’s socio-political environment as a “cold civil war” — meaning we’re at the point where Americans on the Right and Left are opposing each other in ways that do not yet involve actual warfare (though you’d be hard-pressed to believe that as a conservative attempting to speak on a college campus these days), Bernstein told the program the contentiousness is exacerbated as President Donald J. Trump pushes back against the alternative facts presented by the media.

As reported by the Washington Examiner:

Trump has been subject to several damaging leaks during his presidency, which has been mired in several investigations looking into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with his campaign, and is said to be cracking down on people in his administration leaking information to the press.

Bernstein, best known for his investigative reporting for the Washington Post that shed light on the Watergate scandal leading to President Richard Nixon’s resignation in 1974, heavily relied on anonymous sources to follow the story.

The difference between then and now, Bernstein observed, is “that we are in the midst of a cold civil war in this country.”

Expanding upon that, Bernstein said “there is a political and cultural civil war and all of our reporting is taking place in the context of that cold civil war. And nothing quite like that existed at the time of Watergate.”

But then, perhaps predictably, Bernstein — who once penned an essay for Rolling Stone in which he described how the CIA penetrated and used the same mainstream media he worked for during the U.S.-USSR Cold War — blamed the national discourse on (wait for it) Fox News:

Part of the “cold civil war,” Berstein added, can be pinned on the “configuration of media with Fox News, with CNN being perceived by different sets of viewers as representing different truths.” Singling out Fox News, he said the right-leaning cable news channel has “changed American politics as perhaps no other institution has.”

Other than a recent story about slain Democratic National Committee employee Seth Rich, whom many believe was behind the leaks — not the hacks — of the DNC’s emails that were published by Wikileaks, that was retracted, it’s been CNN, WaPo and the Times who have been publishing outright false information, inflammatory innuendo and shady allegations about the president and his administration since before the election. Fox News, like us, on the other hand, has been “the balance” in all of this, so we’re not quite sure how Bernstein can blame our “charged politics” on Fox when all the hyperventilating about a nonsensical, unproven narrative regarding the Trump campaign (that it “colluded” with Russia to “steal” the election) has come from the Left. On that note, Bernstein did accurately describe all cable news as a “hothouse of political debate in which fact-base debate is becoming impossible in this culture.”

Bernstein is right about the political state of the country: After eight years of Barack Obama and now, with the election of swamp-wrecker Donald J. Trump, our country is clearly divided along lines that are irreproachable.

“As I point out in my new e-book, ‘A Less Perfect Union: Making the Case for Secession in 2017,’ we have reached a point in our country where we were about 160 years ago, right before the Civil War,” said National Sentinel editor J. D. Heyes. “Then, slavery was the principle political issue — not the only one, but principally. Today, there are a myriad of issues that separate us but under singular ideologies — Left vs. Right. And frankly, I don’t see a way to ‘settle’ them without violence, other than peaceful separation.

“If Hillary Clinton had won instead of Donald Trump,” Heyes continued, “and we faced another Obama term, essentially, you’d have heard more secession talk from people on the Right. But since Trump won, we’re hearing it from those on the Left. I say let them go if that’s what they want. It’s better than letting things get to the point in our country where one morning we get up and start thinking the only way we can solve our differences is to start killing each other and destroying our country…again.”

As for Bernstein’s assessment of today’s political climate, it’s hard to argue against it. What’s more, the media — mostly the Left-wing media, by the way — is doing all it can to agitate against this president and, by default, his supporters, not the Right-leaning and alternative media. And anyone who thinks they’re going to change the way they cover Trump anytime soon is not being serious.

Which means, our political discourse has a very good chance of turning our “cold civil war” hot.

We shouldn’t let it get to that point. As Heyes says in his new e-book, a better political solution is peaceful separation.

FREE downloadable e-Book by J.D. Heyes makes ‘case for secession in 2017’

(National SentinelStates rights: The end of the American Civil War came on April 9, 1865, at the McLean House in Appomattox, Virginia, when Confederate General Robert E. Lee signed a document of surrender in the presence of Union General Ulysses S. Grant. President Andrew Johnson would formally declare the conflict ended on August 20, 1866, after 620,000 lives were lost.

With the end of the war most believed that the concept of secession – that a U.S. state had an inherent right to leave the union after being admitted – was also dispelled. A U.S. Supreme Court case in 1869 also sought to settle the issue once and for all, determining that the union was “indestructible.”

But did it? In his new e-book, “A Less Perfect Union: Making a Case for Secession in 2017,” which is available for free download, National Sentinel editor J. D. Heyes makes a case that the issue was not “settled” more than 150 years ago.

In recent times, the debate over secession’s legality has begun anew. Heyes’ e-book will provide a fresh perspective and additional insight into the concept, legality, constitutionality and practicality of secession, and why it is a better political solution than the alternative – a new civil war.

“This short e-book provides a fresh perspective, based upon historical evidence, at how a long-dismissed concept of settling irreconcilable political differences is just as relevant today as it was in the 19th century,” said Heyes. “If there are those among us who truly believe they can no longer, in good conscience, co-exist, then they ought to be given the opportunity to go their own way, peacefully. This e-book charts that course, from the beginning of our history, through today’s growing unrest.”
