COMMON SENSE: In 1939, when Hitler invaded Poland, World War II began. As German tanks rolled across western Poland, they were met by the Polish Army, which was primarily on horseback.
 
Because Poland fell behind Germany technologically, they couldn’t defend themselves adequately, and they were subdued within four weeks. Had they been better prepared, the Second World War would have been different, and the Holocaust might not have even happened.
 
Last month, Vladimir Putin announced to the world that Russia has a new ICBM—one that is not detectable. This means that while the USA has been busy with social engineering, we have neglected our military preparedness. Primarily because of sequestration, we have done very little in the past decade to keep up with Russia or with our other adversaries.
 
This has tilted the military balance of power and left us vulnerable to a preemptive attack. If you think I am overstating this, just ask yourself how effective you would be, if you were using a personal computer that was ten years old. It would be practically valueless. It would be like the Poles trying to fight the NAZI tanks on horseback. Our current situation is very similar to this.
 
Here is my point: We need every dollar allocated for defense from the Omnibus Spending Bill. No matter what it costs, or how great a sacrifice we must make, we must do what is necessary to ensure that no adversary has an advantage over us, particularly where strategic weapons are concerned. Our survival depends on it.
 
In my opinion, this is why President Trump had to sign that bill. As Commander-in-Chief, it would have been irresponsible for him to have vetoed it. On the other hand, if our military was current, which it is not, Trump probably would have vetoed it.
 
Because we are behind the eight ball, even though it has cost Trump enormous political capital, he did what was best for the American people by signing the bill. This is true leadership, and I admire him for doing what was right, even though it was unpopular with his supporters.

COMMON SENSE: Concerning the Omnibus Spending Bill, there are many things about it that I don’t like. A few are infuriating. It also feels like President Trump has chosen to follow the Dark Side, but he hasn’t.

 
We have several difficult situations internationally, including Russia, North Korea, Iran, and even China. The problem is our military is no longer prepared to defend our nation as completely or as confidently as it would have ten years ago. The reason is Obama gutted our preparedness in favor of funding his Progressive agenda. It’s that simple.
 
As a result, we have been forced to accept some strategic loses with this bill, by funding programs that clearly conflict with our value system, but all is not lost. Despite numerous moderate setbacks, the funds necessary to reestablish the USA as the world power we have been since World War II have been appropriated. That is a huge victory—one we would never have been able to achieve with Obama or Hillary.
 
The bottom line is this: Regardless of what has been required to accomplish it, rebuilding our military had to be priority #1 for Trump. He accomplished this, but at a substantial cost. Most Americans take our security for granted. Our Commander-in-Chief cannot. Frankly, that Trump showed the wisdom to look at the big picture, rather than be petulant and peevish about looking bad to all of us, should encourage you.
 
We have enemies. You know this, but you do not understand the level of danger we face like President Trump does, or General Mattis does, or Secretary of State designate Mike Pompeo does. So, give them some time, some space, and some love. They are working on our behalf—not against us. I promise you they are.

COMMON SENSE: The outrage of the Left over the firing of Andrew McCabe is as predictable as their rationale for why it was done. Nevertheless, they are correct about one thing. It does send a message—just not the one they believe it does.
 
On the Sunday talk shows, one Democrat after the other lamented how mean-spirited and unfair the firing was. Equally as predictable, Conservatives rebutted the fairness charge, accurately citing that the recommendation to fire McCabe came from the Office of Professional Responsibility within the FBI—not from Attorney General Sessions or President Trump. While the Conservatives are correct about this, they have also missed the point entirely.
 
The message that McCabe’s firing sent was directed to the men and women of the FBI and to other intelligence agencies. The message was this: There will be no double standard at the FBI. The elites on the 7th Floor will be held to account for their behavior, including “lack of candor,” just like the rank and file are.
 
The Rule of Law, which did not apply during the time of James Comey, under the leadership of Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, will once again be restored. It means honorable FBI agents will no longer have to hang their collective heads in shame because of the unethical and illegal actions of Comey and his criminal cadre. It also indicates that more heads will roll, perhaps very soon.
 
In firing McCabe, Sessions was bold and decisive, but that’s not all. In the documentation required for McCabe’s dismissal, there was reference to confidential information from a grand jury. This indicates that Sessions may be working behind the scenes to root out the cancer within the Bureau. If so, it will restore the FBI to its rightful place of prestige. At bare minimum, this firing gives us hope that the systemic corruption of the Obama administration may finally be brought to justice.

COMMON SENSE: What baffles me about the firing of Andrew McCabe isn’t the disingenuous moral outrage of the Left. That’s predictable. What amazes me is his lack of personal responsibility for the situation he brought upon himself.
 
Just as an Olympic athlete knows there is zero tolerance for performance-enhancing drugs, McCabe knew there was zero tolerance for “lack of candor” at the FBI. All agents know this, and they also realize there is no equivocation about it.
 
Based on this knowledge, where is McCabe’s sense of having failed, of having been unfaithful to his sworn duty, or of being remorseful for being misleading and deceptive? Why doesn’t he feel any shame for having let down his fellow FBI agents or for having brought disgrace upon the Bureau? Knowing that he was guilty, which was evident the day he was relieved of his duties several months ago, where is his sense of having failed at his primary mission in life? Why do none of the normal human emotions seem to exist exist for him? Why is he consumed with petty vindictiveness?
 
The reason for all of this is because McCabe lacks personal moral character. For him, cheating and being deceptive are normal. It’s what he does every day of his life.
 
For most of us, character counts, but not for McCabe—not for Comey either. For them, power and prestige count, but doing the right thing for the right reason at the right time doesn’t. It never has, and it never will. For them, when the going gets tough, you can’t count on them to stand up and be truthful, regardless of the consequences. Instead, you can count on them to lie and to leak. This is what they do because it is who they are.
 
This creates a significant problem for the American people, however. When you cannot count on the leadership of the FBI to be straightforward and truthful, which we never could under the leadership of McCabe or Comey, it’s no wonder that our secret police are corrupt. It’s predictable.
 
McCabe is concerned about his pension and with getting Trump—not with his dereliction of duty at the FBI. The morally-relative leftwing media may feel sorry for this despicable, shameful miscreant, but I do not—Comey either. Do You?

COMMON SENSE: Why do you think the Left has come out so forcefully in its support for former FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe? What would make them be so vicious and vitriolic, especially since he is obviously guilty of lacking candor?

 
The answer is this: The outrage is coming from those who would be investigated by a 2nd Special Prosecutor. Also, if you will notice, the venom is directed at President Trump. They are in hopes that all of their caustic rhetoric will either intimidate Sessions into not appointing a 2nd Prosecutor or, more likely, to get Trump to lash out in a way that can be construed as interference. If that happens, they will cry foul and try and create an Obstruction of Justice charge against him.
 
Remember, people like Brennan, McCabe, Comey, and the others always have an agenda for what they are doing. Nothing is ever random.

COMMON SENSE: The Left is incensed that Andrew McCabe has lost his pension, but they don’t seem to have a problem with him perjuring himself before Congress, derailing the Clinton email investigation, or using his position within the FBI to try to abrogate a Presidential election. McCabe’s dereliction of duty is no big deal to either those who dwell in the Swamp or to those who champion Swamp dwellers.
 
When corruption becomes normal, those who demand accountability become villains. When wrong becomes right, as it has in America, it’s no surprise that even the smallest measure of doing the right thing would be castigated as being unacceptably evil. This is the world we live in today, but it is not the world we want; nor is it the world we will accept.
 
McCabe losing his pension is just a drop in the bucket to what we want. He should be indicted for his crimes, beginning with perjury, and he should spend years in prison for his crimes. So should Peter Strozk, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, Glenn Simpson, Susan Rice, Samantha Powers, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch, James Comey, and a host of others.
 
The reckoning has just begun, and I do not believe it will stop until the entire Obama administration is exposed for massive corruption. Is our goal vengeance toward the last administration? No, our purpose is to restore the Rule of Law to America, and to do this, the Swamp must be completely drained.

th
COMMON SENSE: According to the “Washington Post,” Andrew McCabe has been fired. The Post reports, “Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has been fired, effective immediately the Department of Justice said late Friday night. The decision comes as FBI officials recommended his firing, as they wait for a Department of Justice Inspector General report critical of him to be released.
 
In a statement, the Department of Justice said ‘the OIG and FBI OPR reports concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor − including under oath − on multiple occasions.'”
 
This is good news, but not nearly good enough. He needs to spend time in prison—just like you and I would.
