In Friday’s Opening Monologue #BKP talks about the difference in the response concerning Syria using chemical weapons of President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump. In one air strike did Donald Trump return the U.S. to it’s World Leader Status and put ISIS, North Korea, Russia, and China on notice. The American superpower is back!
Does the thought of Nancy Pelosi once again being Speaker of the House terrify you? After the failed attempt to repeal and replace Obama Care the American people put health care squarely on the shoulders of the Republicans.

Mike Cernovich – Do you know this guy? The media considers Cernovich fake news and believes his website Danger & Play pedals lies and conspiracy theories. 60 Minutes’ anchor, Scott Pelley, interviewed Cernovich in an effort to discredit him and his website. But recently Cernovich may have gotten one correct. In fact a very big one! Cernovich broke the story that Susan Rice was responsible for the unmasking of President Trump’s Campaign and Transition Team. He went on to say that Maggie Haberman, with The New York Times, and Eli Lake, with Bloomberg News, sat on the story for several days.
Fox New’s Adam Housely sent several tweets stating he had sources that seem to vindicate House Intelligence Committee Chair, Devin Nunes.
Eli Lake must have realized he could not sit on the story any longer. Lake published the story “Top Obama Adviser Sought Names of Trump Associates in Inel”. This set off a firestorm of questions about the Obama White House and why Susan Rice was collecting information. Senator Rand Paul wants to know if this was a directive from Obama and thinks Rice should have to testify before Congress.
In today’s show #BKP reviews when representative Trey Gowdy asks FBI Director James Comey; Who had authority to unmask private citizens’ names? We also review Devin Nunes’ press conference from The White House. We ask where is ranking committee member, Adam Schiff and why have we not heard any comments from him? As we have learned the possibility of former President Obama along with his former staff putting together this information to possibly undermine The Presidency of the United States. Is that an act of treason?
So, I wonder if Mike Cernovich pedals in lies and conspiracy and if there is evidence of this story to be true. Then I wonder about that whole Pizzagate thing… “Just say’n”
Do you remember in the 90’s when former President Bill Clinton announced that the United States. had reached an agreement with North Korea to freeze and dismantle their nuclear weapons program? Do you remember when he told us that this agreement would be good for the U.S. and the entire world? Do you remember when he said North Korea would now fully join the world of peaceful nations? Well… How did that work out?
Do you remember when George W. Bush declared North Korea part of the axis of evil and he said “The United States of America will not permit the world’s most dangerous regimes to threaten us with the world’s most destructive weapons.” North Korea considered Bushes words just short of declaring war.
Do you remember in 2009 when North Korean soldiers detained two American journalist that had crossed over into North Korea from China without a visa? North Korea agreed to the release of the two journalist but only if Former President Bill Clinton would come personally to meet with Kim Jong-il. Three Presidents, three failed attempts to solve the North Korean crisis.
The Trump Administration has warned Kim Jong-un not to launch anymore test ICBMs. Ignoring the United States’ warnings North Korea had a failed attempt Saturday to launch a missile, which exploded on the pad. North Korea showcased their ICBMs during their founders day parade on Saturday. These ICBMs fitted with nuclear warheads could reach Seoul South Korea, Tokyo Japan, and maybe even the west coast of The United States. I feel sure Secretary of Defence, James “Mad-Dog” Mattis, will bring this North Korean nightmare to an end. Which Clinton, Bush and Obama failed to do.
In this segment we also cover the media trying to figure out “the real Donald Trump.” BKP gives his opinion as to why Trump changed his position on China being a currency manipulator and and NATO no longer being obsolete.
DAWSONVILLE Ga. — Dawson County School Superintendent Dr. Damon Gibbs said Thursday that he considers the Obama Administration’s guidelines regarding transgender students’ use of school bathrooms to be just that, a guideline and not a directive. He said Dawson County schools will not follow that particular guideline.
“They are guidelines, not a directive,” Gibbs said. But the guidelines came with a stern warning that school systems that do not comply could face the possibility of lawsuits and the loss of millions of dollars in federal funding. In the case of Dawson County, that could amount to $2.7 million.
“We do follow most federal guidelines,” Gibbs said. “But we’re not going to do that. We have to meet the needs of all our students.”
Besides, Gibbs added, State School Superintendent Richard Woods was very clear in a letter he sent out state schools this week telling state school superintendents they do not have to comply.
Woods’ letter said the guidelines do not have the force of law and he called them “an overreach of power by the Executive Branch of the federal government.”
Woods assured school superintendents that if federal funds are withheld or a lawsuit is filed, the state will work with districts to take appropriate action.
