As Israel destroys Hezbollah's terror tunnels, Benjamin Netanyahu issues a warning

Hezbollah was caught red-handed building tunnels from Lebanon to Israel for the sole purpose of transporting soldiers, terrorists, and weapons across the border for future attacks on Israel. This isn’t disputed, but there still seems to be a false sense of outrage towards Israel for destroying them.

There’s no way to tell how Hezbollah expected Israel to react, but they have grown increasingly threatening as the fruits of their labors are being systematically demolished. Some fear retaliation for Israel’s efforts to protect itself. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it crystal clear any actions taken against the demolition process will be met by extreme force.

“If Hezbollah makes the mistake, and decides, in any way, to attack us or to oppose our operation, they will be hit with unimaginable blows.”

Kudos to President Trump for listening to his base on gun control

Kudos to President Trump for listening to his base on gun control

Since before the 2016 election, I’ve said President Trump is malleable. He’ll listen to his base when we speak, and if his White House advisers are giving him bad advice, all we have to do is keep shouting the truth. He’ll hear us. He’s listening.

Following the mass shootings in Gilroy, El Paso, and Dayton, many Republicans started caving to calls for gun control. The President himself declared a need to take action and turned to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to find solutions they could put on his desk. Some of those closest to him, such as his daughter Ivanka and Jared Kushner, took the opportunity to promote their own progressive agenda and coax the President into considering “common sense” gun control measures.

Many in the base erupted. Not everyone did; there were conspicuous “conservatives” who took the President’s initial cue regarding gun control and thought this meant they needed to parrot his perspectives instead of trying to convince him otherwise. Will these same people now backtrack as the President has signaled he will no longer consider gun control legislation? I hope so. There’s no shame in following the President’s lead, and as he comes to his senses, so too should those who supported his calls for gun control.

“A lot of the people that put me where I am are strong believers in the Second Amendment, and I am also. And we have to be very careful about that. You know, they call it the slippery slope. All of a sudden everything gets taken away. We’re not going to let that happen.” – President Trump

As Politico reported, the President’s shifting tone is already having a positive effect on many Republicans who had jumped on the gun control bandwagon. But McConnell isn’t one of them. He’s annoyed, which is a good thing.

Republicans start to sour on gun control laws after Trump’s reversal

President Donald Trump has repeatedly emphasized there are already strong background checks on the books, an apparent reversal from his drive to push his party on tightening background checks. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Speaker Nancy Pelosi assailed Trump for the turnabout, with Schumer calling it “heartbreaking.” They are pushing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to take up the House-passed universal background checks bill, which lacks GOP support in the Senate.

Gun control is unconstitutional and ineffective. It’s an emotional response to the serious problems we have with crime and mental illness. We need real solutions, not gut reactions. It’s good to see the President take the lead against gun control.

‘Godfather’ star Gianni Russo on Chris ‘Fredo’ Cuomo’s rant

'Godfather' star Gianni Russo on Chris 'Fredo' Cuomo's rant

When CNN anchor Chris Cuomo was filmed delivering an unhinged rant to a heckler at a restaurant, one of the things many people took offense to was his declaration that the term “Fredo” was to Italian-Americans as the “n-word” is to African-Americans. This has been completely debunked since then with guests on his own show using the name to refer to Donald Trump Jr. But that didn’t keep CNN from backing their guy.

TMZ caught up with Gianni Russo, a star from The Godfather who told the reality of the situation from three unique perspectives. First, he said it wasn’t a racial slur and clearly referred to the weaker brother, a perspective he understands as a star of the film. Second, he knows the Cuomo family well and couldn’t believe Chris would have said that. Third, knowing father Mario Cuomo, former governor of New York, leads him to believe the elder Cuomo would have smacked his son had he heard him say what he did.

No real repercussions are expected against Cuomo from his employers at CNN.

Here’s a video from TMZ of Russo’s perspective:

Dan Bongino calls out Antifa for what they really are

Dan Bongino calls out Antifa for what they really are

There’s a strange series of contradictions within the Antifa movement. They claim to be anti-fascist, yet their actions can only be categorized as fascist suppression techniques. They claim to be against racism and misogyny, yet they intimidate any minority or woman who doesn’t agree with them. They pretend to be brave, yet they hide behind masks.

Conservative pundit Dan Bongino knows a thing or two about fighting fascism, stopping bigotry, and being brave. As an outspoken commentator and former Secret Service agent, Bongino has done more to defend this country and promote the proper ideologies we need in order to prevent fascism from ever rearing its ugly head here. He’s also no fan of Antifa.

As he notes, the real agenda of Antifa isn’t anti-fascism. Their name really implies they’re anti-FA – First Amendment. Even as they fight “hate speech,” they do so in ways that are designed to suppress our freedoms to speak. They’re quickly becoming a parody of the old progressive movements, albeit more dangerous today.
