Thomas Massie said what many of us are thinking

Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY) has never been afraid to call out anyone regardless of their political affiliation. Some of his quips have stung the most powerful men and women on both sides of the aisle as he promotes his flavor of conservative values for Kentucky and on Capitol Hill.

It’s no surprise that as we near sunset on the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation dumpster fire, Massie has some words that represent the general sentiment of people tired of the wrong people being in the spotlight and getting attention they don’t deserve.

Tribalism is making heroes out of some very mediocre individuals. Can we be done soon?

I second the motion.

Daniel Horowitz says what most lawmakers hope you won't find out about the First Step Act

When people hear that something has “bipartisan support,” they usually assume it’s a sign that it represents common-sense legislation that made all sides happy. The First Step Act, the latest iteration of criminal justice reform, isn’t one of those. It gives many lawmakers, especially those in the mushy middle, a campaign tool they can use to target minority voters.

This is a tactic often used by the left, but even some on the right are embracing it in hopes that it won’t be as bad as some experts believe. They’re betting on enough distance between the signing of the bill and the first instance of avoidable violent crime perpetrated by one of the criminals released under the new law. Their hope is that the “good” that comes from the bill overshadows the negatives and modern day mainstream media is likely to give them the cover they need.

Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz posted an article today pointing out the many foibles of this reform bill. It’s likely to pass despite opposition from some on both the far right and far left (for different reasons, obviously), setting the stage for dangerous criminals to be let back out on the streets sooner rather than later.

But it isn’t just the dangers that will be unleashed as a result. There’s a clear fiscal irresponsibility attached to the bill that nobody’s wanting to discuss. We should be accustomed to both Democrats and Republicans failing to safeguard the nation’s financial future, but doing so while simultaneously putting American citizens in danger is a bold new normal.

Here’s a poignant quote from the article:

“More crime, more gangs, more drug traffickers, more strained federal and state law enforcement, and we are all left with the tab for the welfare and increased crime.”

Read the whole thing. It’s worth it:

CBO: First Step Act will release dangerous criminals … and add to the deficit

https://www.conservativereview.com/news/cbo-first-step-act-will-release-dangerous-criminals-and-add-to-the-deficit/Even if one believes there are a few individuals here and there who can and should be released early, there is no denying that if you cast such a wide net of early release on such a sizeable portion of the most advanced felons in the country, it is a recipe for a public safety and law enforcement nightmare. As a group of police officer associations, narcotics officers, and federal prosecutors noted in a joint letter to the Senate, it will “have serious consequences upon public safety and the capacity of law enforcement to effectively respond” because the “releases will involve twice as many federal prisoners as those whose sentences were selectively commuted by President Obama throughout the entirety of his presidency.”

Immigration

Rush Limbaugh explains why the Democrats will never allow a border wall

Rush Limbaugh explains while the Democrats will never allow a border wall

The porous southern border of the United States needs a wall. America voted for the wall when the nominated and eventually elected President Trump. the GOP has failed to deliver on funding for the wall in its two years in power, which leaves it up to the Democrats to fund it… which they won’t.

It’s the GOP’s fault, of course:

Failure to fund the wall is the GOP’s biggest failure

http://noqreport.com/2018/12/14/failure-fund-wall-gops-biggest-failure/The problem of illegal immigration should be well on its way down the road of multiple solutions being enacted at once to dramatically reduce the flow. The wall should be trucking along in a way that’s noticeable; it shouldn’t require the President trying to convince people that there’s been progress on fixing walls here and building partial walls there. We should see it. We should feel it. Illegal immigration should be dropping.

I’ve bit my tongue for too long on this issue, deferring to some of our immigration experts to write on the topic. But this is becoming ridiculous. Illegal immigration has been on the rise lately and thousands of migrants from the various caravans are already finding their way across the border.

Rush Limbaugh understands this very well. He knows why the Democrats won’t allow it to be built: because it would work. They don’t want to slow illegal immigration. They don’t want to prevent migrant caravans from making the trek to our borders. They don’t want to be a sovereign nation.

“You put up a 30-foot concrete wall or whatever it is, and I’ll guarantee you illegal immigration in the southern border of the United States is brought to a screeching halt. That’s why the Democrats are never gonna go for it!”

Why Democrats Will Never Fund the Wall

https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2018/12/13/why-democrats-will-never-fund-the-wall/They’re never gonna stand for a wall being built.  The optics would stop them from succeeding and the wall itself would.  No more caravans.  You put up a 30-foot concrete wall or whatever it is, and I’ll guarantee you illegal immigration in the southern border of the United States is brought to a screeching halt.  That’s why the Democrats are never gonna go for it!  You put a wall up, and you free the Border Patrol to go after illegals already in the country and deport them.

The wall is the single greatest obstruction to the future of the Democrat Party.  They do not want a wall.  They will not support a wall.  A wall would bring about the end of the Democrat Party.  That’s why all this that they’re talking about is nothing but smoke and mirrors.  They’re never gonna support it.  They’re never gonna fund it.  They want people to think they might.  They’ll argue about money, government shutdowns.  But they can’t survive as a party if that wall is ever built.  That’s their permanent underclass that would not be permitted to enter the country.

Lila Rose tells the plain truth about Planned Parenthood

Abortion provider Planned Parenthood and its supporters often try to confuse the issue of their purpose by classifying themselves as a women’s healthcare provider. That is partially correct, but let’s not be obtuse. Planned Parenthood has always been known as the go-to place for abortions with no questions asked.

The revelation in 2015 that they sell baby body parts for research has kept them in the spotlight, but very little is being done to prevent our tax dollars from going towards the cause of abortion on demand. They play accounting games by showing these dollars didn’t go to that activity, but at the end of the day their budget decisions are based on their total revenues whether they come from tax dollars, donations, or human sales.

Lila Rose, President of pro-life activist group Live Action, had some thoughts on Planned Parenthood. It’s arguably the plainest truth that can be said about the organization in one sentence.
