After Brussels: Donald Trump Becomes Winston Churchill

Speak and write in clear English. Call the Muslim “no go zones” of Europe what they are. They are “beachheads”. They are beachheads in a soft invasion of Europe and an attack on the values and peoples of the West.

Eli Lake today writes a preposterous article for Bloomberg News which declares France to be a “police state” fighting Islamic terrorism. Lake’s claim that France is a “police state” engaged in battle against Islamic terrorism is based on the state of emergency declared by France after the November 2015 Muslim terrorist attacks in Paris.

Lake’s “police state” is an odd one by any definition of that phrase. A police state where the police in a terrorist assault must first run to their stations in order to get weapons because they are unarmed even as the invaders assault them with machine guns – in a gun free, gun control continent? Police state? Do “no go zones”, or as we call them “invasion beachheads”, exist in France? Well, yes they do. The “invasion beachheads” exist in Belgium, England and other countries on the continent unaware it is invaded.

There is a “gathering storm” in Europe evident after Paris and Brussels. From the invasion beachheads the Muslim terrorists attack even as reinforcements are invited to join them by the very states they wish to destroy. The West, its peoples and values, are under attack but few speak or write clearly about the soft invasion of Europe and the weakness of our leaders:

Why does ISIS rise? Because their leaders and their followers believe in something. It is an evil something and a hideous something, but they believe in it and are willing to die for it.

The West, the values of the West, the heritage of the West, are in peril today because our leaders have abandoned everything about the West except its materialist component. Since 2011 we have written about Barack Obama’s “managed decline” of America. “Managed decline” of America, brought to you by Barack Obama.

The president of the United States, the one that is supposed to be the leader of the Free World, the champion of the West and its values will not defend the West because he and his cohort do not believe in our values.

So from Barack Obama’s “managed decline” of America a different voice emerges. That voice says “Make America Great Again”. “Make America Great Again” is a rational response to “managed decline”. Add to that Donald Trump’s instinctive defense of the West and its values and the power of his message becomes clear.

Winston Churchill was a man of massive talents and massive faults. Look to someone else if you want politically correct “consistent” leadership. Winston Churchill wrote about his “art of the deal” in his autobiography, My Early Life:

I have always urged fighting wars and other contentions with might and main till overwhelming victory and then extending the hand of friendship to the vanquished. Thus I have always been against the Pacifists during the quarrel and the Jingoist at its close…I thought we should have conquered the Irish then given them Home Rule…and that after smashing the General Strike we should have met the grievances of the miners.

That excerpt is the philosophy of a man who believes that strength in national security affairs is a virtue, not a menace. The Churchillian philosophy of strength, as illuminated in the above passage, does not preclude submission to logic and what is proper once your aims are achieved – from a position of strength. Churchill would conquer his opponents then, if reasonable, have the flexibility to reach out and make necessary accommodations. It’s “better to be strong and wrong than weak and right” circa the 1900s.

Churchill’s personality and tough talk, like Donald Trump’s, was a problem too. He was not an easy man to get along with and one who took personal umbrage far too frequently. But Winston Churchill at the moment of greatest peril for the West, saved the West.

Winston Churchill’s warnings to prepare for the storm to come were not popular. To the contrary most of his assertions were denounced. But he was right. And Britain and the Western World woke up only when the full horror of war was upon them.

After Brussels, even Trump’s harshest critics hear the guns of 2016 booming in the same way earlier generations heard the guns of August 1914 and 1939. Trump hater Piers Morgan:

How many more innocent men, women and children are going to be blown to pieces by these murderous bastards?

How many more airports, train stations, sports stadiums, restaurants or concert halls will be obliterated in a hail of suicide bombs and bullets?

How many more world leaders will wring their hands on national television afterwards and spout pointless platitudes about the ‘poor brave victims’ and ‘heroic emergency services’?

How many taunting, gleeful claims of responsibility will the despicable perpetrators of these evil crimes be able to issue?

I’m sick of this, aren’t you?

Sick of feeling sick about such endless, senseless barbarism.

And the worst thing about it is that I see no end.

The inherent problem which causes it, chaotic war-torn instability in the Middle East, is getting worse, not better; just as the financial and military resource of the enemy is growing greater, not reducing.

Yet just as the world is crying out for strong decisive leadership, there is none.

America has a demob happy President Obama eeking out his last few months in office. A man whose infamous ‘leading from behind’ philosophy to foreign policy has been partly responsible for the war in Syria raging uncontrollably for five years – allowing fundamentalism to ferment.

Obama has zero interest in doing anything tangible to really deal with ISIS. This is now parked in the tray marked ‘next president’s problem.’

Europe, meanwhile, is splintering at the seams, ravaged by an unprecedented migration crisis that nobody seems to have a clue how to handle.

German chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to let a million migrants into its country is already seen to be an utter disaster.

France, reeling from two horrendous attacks in Paris, is understandably highly fearful of yet more terror coming its way.

Belgium officials effectively conceded today that they have no real way to protect themselves against the ISIS threat. A fact surely born out by the fact that today’s onslaught in Brussels happened right when the city most expected it, following the capture of Paris attacks suspect Saleh Abdeslam three days ago.

Britain, surely a target anytime soon, is on red alert but its warring politicians are too distracted by the upcoming EU referendum in June to pay anything more than lame lip service to terrorism.

So nobody seems to be doing anything concrete to stop ISIS, or even suggesting a new way to do so given the spectacular lack of success to date.

Well almost nobody.

By coincidence, I had an interview scheduled today with the world’s most controversial man, Donald Trump, for my UK show, Good Morning Britain.

It was set up a couple of weeks ago, but the timing was eerily prescient.

Here is one man who definitely has a plan to deal with ISIS terrorism. Several plans in fact.

The problem is that people don’t like them. Well, a lot of people don’t anyway.

Trump’s strong plans against Islamic terrorism are logical and reminiscent of Churchill. Piers Morgan, Trump hater, was astonished in his agreement with Donald Trump:

Trump told me countries must tighten their borders in light of these terror attacks, especially to anyone related to an ISIS fighter in Syria. [snip]

He told me he wants law-abiding Muslims to root out the extremists in their midst, expressing his bafflement and anger that someone like Abdeslam was able to hide for so long in the very part of Brussels he had previously lived. [snip]

He told me America must make it far harder for illegal immigrants to enter the U.S. and thinks European countries should follow suit. [snip]

He told me he believes there are now areas of many major European cities which have become poisonous breeding grounds for radicalized Islamic terror. [snip]

I didn’t feel I was talking to a lunatic, as many seem to view Trump.

I saw a guy, a non-politician unfettered by PC language restraints, who is genuinely furious at the devastation which ISIS is wreaking, and seriously concerned for the security of his fellow Americans and indeed, the citizens of Europe. [snip]

And right now, he firmly believes that ISIS will murder countless more Americans and Europeans if somebody somewhere doesn’t stand up and punch them hard in the face.

Someone prepared to stop spewing politically-correct niceties after these attacks, hoping nobody gets offended, and actually DO something.

Let’s be honest with ourselves, right now ISIS is winning this war and will continuing committing utter carnage on our streets on an ever graver and more barbaric scale until they are stopped. [snip]

Hate Donald Trump all you like, but at least he seems to recognise the magnitude of the threat and at least he has firm proposals for how to try to defeat it.

In June, Great Britain will vote on whether or not to exit from the European Union. The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson has broken with his own party and decided to run a Donald Trump style campaign for the “Brexit”. Other leaders, inspired by Donald Trump are sure to join in the world wide realignment taking place.

The worldwide realignment will take place and no plot against Donald J. Trump can stop it. Reality will see to that.

This is not the first time the Western world, its peoples and its values, have come under threat. Is this generation ready for the fight? Forced by events, hammered by reality, the answer will have to come sooner rather than later. Will the answer come with a Chamberlain whimper, or with a Churchillian trump?

  1. Everyone who advocates appeasement with the Islamists should just wear a tattoo on their foreheads that says Je suis Neville Chamberlain.

  2. I shudder to think what Churchill would have thought of the ninnies searching high and low for “safe spaces” from mean speech.

  3. Admin. A fine post.

    As for Pier Morgan–to hell with him and his kind.

    He speaks from fear, and fear is an unstable commodity.

    Fear leads to oppression, overreaction and holocaust.

    Give me a man of principle any day of the weak.

    Like Chuchill–wage war like a viking, and only after final victory, with equal resolve.

    Trump has those same faults and attributes of character.

    A politically correct figure cannot cope with what lies ahead.

    Any more than Kerensky could cope with the Bolsheviks.

    Kasich is a Kerensky.

    Trump is a Bolshevik

    And Beck is a mental case.

    Not the first I have met from his glorious high school alma mater.

    The other, a dead ringer by appearance and by tone.

    A navy chief and son of a navy chief assigned to a nuclear submarine.

    When he retired the world—at least those that knew him breathed easier.

  4. correction: wage peace with equal resolve.

    That was the key to Britains success.

    It was always about maintaining a balance.

    If a hostile force arose with no adequate deterrent.

    Intervene if you must but only long enough to restore the status quo ante.

    Do not get bogged down in land wars.

    Since the days of the Spanish Armada, and the Battle of Trafalgar rely on seapower.

    As the Naval Academy seal reads, ex scinia tridens–though knowledge seapower.

    How different from the doctrine of the Great Media Beloved Messiah.

    Who is a shining star to tyrants and murders across the world.

    So once again, fuck Pier Morgan.

  5. It hell to get old.

    Its not Trump that’s a bolshevik. Its Teddy Bear Cruz.

    Trump is Churchill.

    If I were writing a play, this would get very confusing.

  6. Bernie must have the voter list from 2008 primary because I am getting bombarded with calls.

    I cannot imagine what I did to deserve this.

  7. Incredible depth here, admin and crew. Wish I had the grey matter to match it in response.

    Ill settle for another of Get Smart’s Would You Believe? Even QE seems to have his number:

    Queen Refuses To Return To London To Meet President Obama
    Published March 19, 2016
    By Ephraim Hardcastle, Daily Mail
    The Queen refuses to come to London to meet President Barack Obama next month.
    Instead, accompanied by his security circus, he’ll trundle to Windsor in his bomb-proof, seven-ton limo for lunch.

  8. America to Establishment: Who the hell are you people ?

    Establishment has been defined as Wall Street, D.C., Big Media

    Some say Hillary Clinton also fits the definition of establishment

    Almost universally, the establishment is seen as incestuous and isolated


    The people who spend two bucks for chili at the Courtesy Diner at Laclede Station Road can’t fathom why anyone would pay Hillary Clinton $225,000 to make a speech.

    Nor can they understand why the U.S. Senate is taking a 17-day break for Easter after spending much of their time last week fuming over the Supreme Court vacancy. Somehow, people all over America are saying loudly and clearly this election year, Washington and its enablers – the media, the political pros and Wall Street – don’t understand us.

    That’s why, all over this slice of middle America, exasperated people got up before dawn on a cold, 37-degree morning recently to spend four hours in a line so long that from its end people couldn’t even see the Peabody Opera House, where they would hear Donald Trump. And it wasn’t just Trump. In the next two days, other folks nearby lined up to hear the outsider talk from Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Bernie Sanders, Ind.-Vt.

    They share the same grievance. In 2016 America, the deepest divide is not between Democrats and Republicans. It’s not even between conservatives and liberals. It’s between Us and Them – the people versus The Establishment.

    In dozens of interviews, in a cross section of the country, the sentiments were the same.

    “They’re political bureaucrats who would like to control the people,” said Sandy Garber, a St. Charles real estate agent, when asked to define the establishment.

    John Hackmann, a Fairview Heights, Ill., retiree, labeled it a “Washington cartel.”

    “They just let the government do whatever they want,” said Jim Walker, an Arnold, Mo., businessman.

    What is the establishment? Nationally, eight in 10 people told a McClatchy-Morning Consult poll this month it includes members of Congress. Similar numbers cited the Democratic and Republican parties, political donors, Wall Street bankers and the mainstream media.

    71% Percentage of people who see the nation on the wrong track, according to a new McClatchy-Morning Consult poll.
    They split on whether Trump, a billionaire real estate developer who’s thrived in the New York business world, was part of the establishment, but seven in 10 said Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton was.

    In essence, the establishment lives and thrives in a small world that lives and works in New York and Washington, on Wall Street, in Big Media, and in Politics, connected by the high-speed Acela corridor and often by mutual self interest.

    They hire each other and each other’s children. They huddle at the same white tie and black tie dinners. And, they attend each other’s weddings.

    Access is this group’s common currency. Wall Street spends millions to open doors to the top levels of the government that regulates it. Politicos bend over to get access to the money that keeps them in office. The media cut deals to get access to decision makers needed to feed ratings and circulation, even if sometimes at the cost of objectivity.

    “It’s a collection of people who live in Washington, D.C., and don’t care about the rest of the world,” said Hackmann. And, he noted, “They all have jobs.”


    “The establishment is anybody with big money who can get to the Congressmen and lobbyists,” said Judy Surak, a nurse from Clemson, South Carolina.

  9. haven’t had a chance to view the clips of trump with piers morgan yet…

    however, just a tidbit…Piers Morgan won Celebrity Apprentice on Donald’s show in 2008

    I was under the impression he was supportive of Donald…I have seen some quotes where he sounds like he is promoting Donald…

    will have to view the clips…we just dodged a tornado…hope WPB and Boca will be ok…

  10. I wish donald would get off this wife thing…yes the cruzzies started it, but let it go…this isn’t helping him…

    he did so well with his speech at aipac…he has momentum…he has world events proving him right…

    …it really is time for him to stay away from the small stuff because the media just turns it against him and goes on for days…they start every show with this wife topic

    the time now is just before we go around the final bend…time to pick up more and more supporters…the ones DT has are not going to leave him…he needs to appeal to others that are weary or afraid of him…this includes women…for a smart guy I do not know why he needs to dwell on MK or HCruz…let it go and soar to more important things…

    we need women and we need young people in the general…DT…work on that…

  11. Politics is a take-no-prisoners game. I suspect Trump pointed the National Enquirer in that direction so that they could seriously damage Mr. Clean for him. Seriously, did Ted really think that he could attack Melania and not receive serious blowback from Trump?

  12. twitter is starting to light up with the Cruz affair story…

    two women being named are katrina pierson who works as national spokesperson for trump, she used to be with the tea party (can you imagine if she came out and admitted the story)

    and cruz pundit always on CNN … Amanda Carpenter


    Trump can beat Clinton

  13. Tony…funny thing…during the press conference at mar-a-lago I mentioned that I noticed that Lois Pope was there…she was an older blonde lady with her hair pulled back in a ponytail…

    she is a big philantropist…she inherited her money from her late husband who at one time owned ‘The national enquirer’ which was based in Boca Raton

    this is all part of the Palm Beach crowd…and Donald is right in there…gets more and more intriguing…

  14. S – but the big mystery is – why in the world would these women sleep with him? I don’t intend to be mean, and he can’t help it how he was born, but …. that FACE! Arrrggghhhh!

  15. Given the comments over at Breitbart over the National Enquirer story, it looks like Ted Cruz supporters are going through the different stages of grief all at the same time.

  16. This kind of thing makes me furious. This article repeatedly refers to these men wearing women’s clothing as gay. They’re NOT gay, they’re transsexuals! One is sexual preference, one is gender identity, VERY different. I don’t even agree with the “T” being added to LG(B). It doesn’t belong. There are just so few “T” people, they decided to stick them with the gay people. But it makes people think that gay people want to be the other sex.

    I totally agree that men (no matter what they’re wearing or how they “identify”) should be allowed in women’s restrooms. I do not believe transsexuals are going to rape women, but a straight predator just has to dress up like a woman to gain access to a woman in a deserted bathroom.

    If transsexuals are going to push this, they’re going at it the wrong way. They need to push for single person bathrooms available somewhere in each establishment. Then they can just go in by themselves. It’s like the leftist groups don’t care if they may put women in danger, just like they just love those Muslims, and don’t care about how they harm women.

  17. Ooops …. second paragraph… I totally agree that they should NOT be allowed in women’s restrooms….

    And this way, it’s not Donald who has to do the dirty work. The Enquirer will do it for him.

    “The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”
    ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War

  19. I am so glad to see Trump hit back over Melania. Cruz not only used that nude pic, but he had the ballot box stuffed as well on that Utah election. He is dirty, lying and nasty. Now he is not likely to get his US Supreme Court appointment, either.

    Lyin’, Cheatin’ Ted!

  20. Unless the National Enquirer admits that they made it all up, which I doubt they will do due to the seriousness of their allegations, I think Ted Cruz is done. If he denies that he screwed around with those women, then the NE will just drag it out with one lurid revelation after another as the rest of the media goes into a piranha feeding frenzy. If he holds a press conference and admits that he has been such a naughty boy with an open zipper, then only the true diehard believers in his candidacy will continue vote for him in the next primaries and caucuses. Checkmate!

  21. It’s interesting to note that currently neither Drudge nor Breitbart are officially mentioning the National Enquirer’s revelations about Lyin’ Cheatin’ Ted.

  22. Trump also cheated on Ivana, so I think calling Cruz Lying cheating is a bridge too far.
    He needs to step aside now
    He very much needs to look Presidential.

  23. Cruz is the one pretending to be a saint. His campaign started first mocking Trump’s wife through Glenn Beck making fun of Melania being a lesbian porno model, then Romney making fun of her being foreigner, and then his super pac started posting her nude photo from GQ. For Trump, it’s payback time, courtesy of the National Enquirer.

    Maybe he roofied them?

  25. Ted Cruz, is bombastic, sanctimonious and coldly sharkish behind that forced smile. Is Cruz a truly convincing model of Christian values of charity, compassion and humility? Jimmy Carter did it way better than this. Cruz seems consumed by a vainglorious conviction of his own destiny, tied to an apocalyptic view of history. He reminds me of glad-handing televangelists like Jimmy Swaggart and Jim Bakker, who were loved and trusted by so many but whose careers ended in disgrace.
    Perhaps Camile has it right. Or perhaps not. What if all this is about is getting a supreme court nomination? If so, would his senate colleagues confirm him. Obviously they would for no other reason than to get him out of the senate.

  26. If so, then I hope he replaces Roberts.

    Roberts can then become a democrat lobbyist, which was his life’s ambition.

    He just took a circuitous path to get that lobbyist position.

    And, likewise, Tednado took a circuitous path of his own to get to the court.

    And because recruited Roberts, he is the right man to defrock him and send him on the yellow brick road where he longs to be along with the rest of the establishment munchkins.

  27. Lorac, it’s big news in our Stones community and having attended over 120 shows all of the world, I was tempted to go, but I have so many friends in Miami whose families were persecuted under Castro that I could not in good conscience attend…They will be back stateside for a final stand in the fall if my contacts are correct…I am happy for the Cuban people who should have a blast.

  28. Ted’s outrage makes a lot more sense now. So does all his holy rollerin’. LOL. And all those hard looking broads out spinning for him. They are his ex …, erm, partners. If true, and I doubt the National Enquirer would want the legal bills due from a libelous hit job, another one bites the dust. Biggest loser in this? Hillary. She could have beat his ass in her sleep. Lucky Trump.

    Ted is NOT going to a Supreme Court slot. The warning shots have been incoming apparently for a while and he kept pushing and agreed to be used by the RNC as a block to Trump. Now he gets nothing. Not a poker player this guy. The Senate that would have to confirm him is laughing. The Democrats are laughing (although they would have liked him to be the nominee to kick him). And the Southern Baptists (who have taken great umbrage to his old man and that loon Beck saying they are not good Christians) are saying in Dallas “Told. You. So.” What a horndog he turned out to be. Trump knew all about him when Cruz was trying to play patty-cake last fall and kiss up. Dumbass. Who did he think he was playing with?

  30. Drew Johnson of the Washington Times lending credibility to National Enquirer story:

    Drew Johnson ‏@Drews_Views 6h6 hours ago Berlin, Germany
    COMING CLEAN: From what I know, at least 2 of the women named as Cruz mistresses by the National Enquirer are accurate

    Drew Johnson ‏@Drews_Views 5h5 hours ago Berlin, Germany
    @MAGAmerchant @realDonaldTrump @Campaign_Trump Lots heard rumors. An online media outlet new the whole story but they chose not to run w/it.

    Drew Johnson ‏@Drews_Views 6h6 hours ago
    @WebMaryJ @PaineThomas1737 @jaybakeraz @heath_karen It would’ve helped Rubio if a Cruz affair came out earlier.Trump wanted all the benefits

    Drew Johnson ‏@Drews_Views 5h5 hours ago Berlin, Germany
    @obama_speech Not a reporter.Just a columnist.This has nothing to do with the Times.Another outlet has the’s their story to tell.

    Breitbart’s Allum, who teased a “Cruz Bombshell” in February, which he then claimed was held up by editors and lawyers, wrote on his Twitter: “I hate being scooped.” He was spammed for weeks after promising a bombshell within 48 hours, then suddenly stopped giving updates. People were asking him daily on his twitter about it for quite some time with no further replies, when previously he had replied constantly, and stated the article “was coming, and would be worth it.” However, around March 7th, Allum posted a parody link claiming it was the “Cruz bombshell,” that Cruz liked My Little Pony. So Allum might just be a big time liar, and isn’t the media outlet Drew Johnson mentioned.

  31. the beauty of the National Enquirer expose is all the GOP ass-holes that have lined up with Cruz, especially JEB! or, is this expose done on purpose to place the mighty JEB! back in play at the convention?

  32. The timing is impeccable. The attack on Melania and the JEB endorsement, then stupid Ted telling Trump to leave his wife the he’ll alone. They got schlonged

  33. According to their update, apparently Breitbart, Drudge and other outlets knew about Ted’s sexcapades as far back as last month before the Florida primaries and were holding off on releasing it in order to protect Ted. Now that the tomcat’s out of the bag courtesy of the NE and Salon now commenting about the Twitter frenzy over it, they are going to find it increasingly harder to keep it out of print.

  34. Ted is NOT going to a Supreme Court slot.
    I was talking about what he wants–what his his motive is. It is his fallback position. Not what will happen. He will not get the appointment. Not after this. My comment about confirming him just to get rid of him was meant in jest. They would like to get rid of him, but in a way that leaves no finger prints, being the complete cowards and traitors most of us now believe they are—most of them anyway. And by the way, this is not hyperbole. We now have the goods on them.

    If memory serves, wasn’t the National Review, excuse me, the National Enquirer, please forgive me for confusing the two, the latter is the more credible publication, that dropped the dime on pre pubescent John Edwards, i.e. Blinky? Obviously, he had a lot to blink about, etc.

  36. Enough about the Cruz Sex scandal, no one is touching it yet, I’m worried about Wisconsin and the delegates!

  37. This is the most intriguing part to me so far about the whole affair from the article above:

    Interestingly Sarah Isgur Flores, in addition to being a well known political operative, was also the campaign manager for Carly Fiorina. And that little factoid brings an earlier discovery into question; where the Super-PAC for Ted Cruz (Keep the Promise) actually sent the Super-PAC for Carly Fiorina (Carly for America “CfA”) $500,000.

  38. The casual indifference Obama projects towards the ISIS threat, the extreme personal animus he harbors for the United States, his blind pursuit of the new world order, his obsession about controlling the domestic population in the event of an attack, his open borders to Syrians policy, his flying central American illegals in here at taxpayer expense and his coddling of terrorist (workplace violence etc) which is now a proven fact, leads to one ineluctable conclusion:

    These are NOT the actions of someone who seeks to protect the nation. They are, instead, the actions of a president who sets the stage for such an attack. And why would he do something that terrible, an innocent low information American might ask. I cannot believe that the leader of this country would do such a thing. You cannot? Really. If you want to know the truth then let the scales fall from your eyes, and remember what the end game his here. Globalization. An attack would create social chaos, justify the assumption of dictatorial powers, and snuff out the voice of the American People. And that strategy would be further enhanced by our corrupt big media.

    The question then arises what if anything would the American People do to thward this hijacking. If past is prologue, the American People will back down and accept the yoke of tyranny. Obviously, that was not at all the response of our forefathers, but big media has so corrupted our culture, that I am afraid those who insist upon a vigorous response would be shouted down. And what would Mitch McConnell do? Nothing? No. Not that. Less than Nothing. It would be Failure Theater: The Grand Finale.

    There’s a saying that every man on the Internet is a man, every woman is a man and every child is actually an agent of the FBI. In the future that may also mean that every Jihadi is an NSA bot. Unleashing virtual friends on Islam is technologically nifty but more than slightly disturbing. But secret containment is what PC society does as opposed to open confrontation. The contrast in the struggle between ISIS and Western leaders could not be greater. One is strategically decisive but tactically and technologically weak. The other is strategically insane but tactically and technologically dominant. The result of this asymmetrical contest is a standoff.

    Perhaps the greatest thing that ever happened to socialism is capitalism, which has given it the ability to pursue mad agendas through a sheer technological tour de force. The ISIS’ wolfpack (if you want to call it that) will likely inflict substantial damage on the Western public. But it will be found by the magical Allied destroyers, powered by wizardry they can only guess at. ISIS will be depth-charged — but only just enough to scare them — in a struggle where the West strives to avoid victory as devoutly as defeat.

  39. I expect that things are not all beer and skiddles on the home front now.

    Ted will have to put aside his Doctor Seuss book, for a new lecture on the birds and bees, with copious references to Masters and Johnson.

    And there is the other issue: cuckold: the husband of an adulteress, often regarded as an object of derision. In this case the wife?

    Whatever else may come of this Goldie Sacks and the establishment cannot be too happy. The best laid schemes of mice, men and now globalists, gang aft agley.

  40. In light of Gawker’s loss to Hulk Hogan, for the NE to go forward with this story indicates to me that they are very sure of their sources and believe that their reporting is airtight. It’s been 12 hours since this exploded on the Internet and the conservative news sites like Breitbart and Drudge have gone dark over it with no response from the Cruz camp and Katarina Pierson, one of the women identified from the NE pictures, has locked down her Instagram account. It is Good Friday and maybe they are all trying to get their stories straight before Monday hits. How this will affect Wisconsin is anyone’s guess, but the longer they try to ignore it, the bigger the story gets.

    Thank you.

    Roger Stone strikes again perhaps?

    Oh a whole host have ratted out the Cruz’s. I’m sure Carl Icahn got an earful about Heidi and her stunts, scams, and climbing. Lawyers who have had to work with Cruz, and now ex-girlfriends are all, and have been blabbing to Trump and Co. Neither strike me as the type to have loyal and dedicated friends. Kiss up and kick down types.

  43. I will not bother you with the article, but simply comment on its conclusion. The writer is a first rate journalist, and a very good man. But in this case, he is overly optimist. He believes that Lynch and Comey hold the fate of the nation in their hands, depending on how they react to the email scandal. He claims that is Comey recommends prosecution and Lynch demurs, which is the most likely scenario unless you believe Obama would use this as a pretext to take Hillary down, then it means the end of the rule of law and the loss of faith in our system. I say that happened several years ago, first with Fast and Furious and more recently with the failure to indict Lois Learner. Oh sure, Lerner was not president but the issue at stake was grave, the crime was eggregious and she got not only a walk but a $120,000 per year retirement benefit plus full health care. He goes on to imagine that is something is not done, then within 100 days after she takes office she will be impeached. But if the establishment knocks out Trump then whose to do it? Ryan?? McConnell??? Big media??? No. That is pure fiction. Besides it would interfere with the globalist agenda. The mantra would be we must forget the past and look to the future. And what would the American People do, besides nothing. I like Roger, but his opinion here is like what they say about second marriages: THE TRIUMPH OF HOPE OVER EXPERIENCE.

  44. Katrina Pierson 42 minutes ago:
    What’s worse? People who actually believe the trash in tabloids, or the ones who know it’s false &spread it anyway? #stupidity on all levels

  45. The article I referred to above was by Roger Simon at PJ Media. He is a Hollywood screenwriter and founder of that blog.

    Hey Katrina? If you really want to know, perhaps you should ask John Edwards, who is a recognized authority on the subject. He might tell you there is a third alternative, i.e. people who are told the truth and dismiss it out of hand with no investigation because it conflicts with the narrative. Hell, that could be the douchebag from California Congressman Adam Schiff.

    Cruz’s superPAC did it as a preemptive strike knowing the hypocrite was about to be exposed. The shitty little ad was thrown together last minute it looks like to me anyway. Cruz is the sinner hypocrite so they go after the other guy’s wife. What ****’s. Cowards.

    Notice that she doesn’t categorically and unequivocally denied that she slept with Grandpa Munster.

  49. Like I said previously, whatever the response is from the Cruz camp, he is royally screwed no matter which way he turns.

  50. Tony and Big Pink Friends,

    …a few of us are concerned about these ‘wife’ stories, especially how the media is playing it all against Donald…and Cruz is getting more air time with his hysterics

    I have been tweeting to Donald to stay above all this, not take the media and cruz’s bait and traps…act more and more Presidential and FOCUS on the voters and the “big picture”…Donald, the voters care about what you can do for them…etc, etc, etc

    However…next week we have the Wisconsin debate (think it is thursday)

    and something tells me it will be very hard for Donald to resist springing this Enquirer story out if he is provoked…and we can probably bet he will be provoked and baited/trapped by the media and Cruz

    could be explosive

    Gonzotx…this could be a bumpy ride…

    Both Trump’s campaign and the NE have denied that Trump is the source for the #cruzsexscandal so I think Trump will continue to play the innocent card till Wisconsin is over and let the buzzards feast on Cruz’s bones.

  52. The beauty of this is that the story was originally to be used by Rubio’s team to destroy Cruz. So this isn’t some new dirt that Trump has dug up. This was originally to be used by the establishment GOP against their now golden boy.

  53. one of the links said something about someone on CNN asking about the Cruz/mistress story this morning

    did anyone see it or have a clip?

  54. Amanda Carpenter, one of the women thought to be among the five, was asked on CNN to comment about the NE article. The question took her by surprise, and she would only say to talk to her lawyer.

  55. Is ISIS Faithful to Islam?

    The questions that arise are crucial.

    When we call Islam a “religion of peace,” are we projecting our own hopes? Are we deceiving ourselves? Are the Muslims we respect, admire and like, as friends and patriots, assimilated and “Americanized” Muslims who have drifted away from, set aside, or rejected many core beliefs of the Quran and root teachings of their own faith?

    Are they simply secularized Muslims?

    When the Afghan regime we installed sought to cut off the head of a Christian covert, was that un-Islamic? Or does Islam teach that this is the way to deal with apostates?

    Is the hate spewing forth from the Ayatollah toward Americans and Jews un-Islamic? Is the Saudis’ cutting off of heads and hands of adulterers and thieves and suppressing of women un-Islamic?

    Or is that what the Quran actually teaches?

    Have the Islamists of al-Shabab in Somalia, Boko Haram in Nigeria, Hezbollah in Lebanon, al-Qaida and ISIS in Syria and Iraq — who daily die fighting in the name of Islam — misread their sacred texts?

    Are they all heretics who fail to understand the peaceful and loving character of their Islamic faith?

    Or is the West deluding itself? Is it possible we are the ones misreading the sacred books of Islam and what the triumph of Islam would mean for our civilization — because we lack the courage to face the truth and do what is necessary to avoid our fate?

    Islam is rising again. Of its 1.6 billion adherents worldwide, many are returning to the roots of their faith, seeking to live their lives as commanded by the Prophet, the Quran and Sharia.

    Western survival would seem to dictate a halt to all immigration from lands where this deadly virus we call “radical Islam” — with which Kasich concedes we are at war — is rampant, just as we would halt immigration from lands where the bubonic plague was rampant.

    That would surely contradict the cherished beliefs of Western liberals.

    But, then, as James Burnham reminded us, “Liberalism is the ideology of Western suicide.”

  56. And Cruz’s response to this is what?

    Leave my wife alone?

    And then the gratuitous: you are a sniveling coward.

    There is no direct evidence that Trump was behind the disclosure.

    And the target of this disclosure is not his globalist wife, but the horn dog himself.

    So what’s it all about alfie.

    This rip roaring snorting diversion.

    Can a holy roller have an open marriage and get the nomination?

    If you believe the establishment is in control then the answer is yes.

    But if you believe the establishment is in control, please explain why everything is falling apart

    As with everything else they are Guinness Book incompetent.

  57. Cruz knew it was coming and tried to get ahead of it and into the weeds.
    “The ad predictably created anger from Donald Trump, which then quickly escalated into remarks by both Ted Cruz and his own wife, Heidi Cruz.”

    “That ongoing back and forth sniping is said to have been a planned event by the Cruz campaign to try and intermingle the Cruz-Trump dispute with the pending National Enquirer story in an effort to confuse voters as to what was really going on. Initially it appears to have worked as the Mainstream Media has focused almost entirely on the Trump-Cruz back and forth involving the defense of their respective wives, and almost no attention by this same Mainstream Media has been devoted to the Cruz sex scandal story.”

    Amanda Carpenter, one of the women thought to be among the five, was asked on CNN to comment about the NE article. The question took her by surprise, and SHE WOULD ONLY SAY TO TALK TO HER LAWYER.

    So that is an affirmative. LOL.



    Carpenter was forced to respond to the story during a live television segment.

    The CNN contributor appeared alongside Trump supporter Adriana Cohen, a columnist for the Boston Herald.

    The two women were supposed to be discussing this week’s tiff between the Cruz and Trump camps, but instead Cohen brought the tabloid story up.

    ‘If we’re going to call Donald Trump’s character into question, I would like Ted Cruz to issue a statement on whether or not the story is true, that he has had affairs with may women, including, you were named, Amanda,’ Cohen said, pointing to her co-panelist.

    ‘Will you denounce this story or will you confirm it?’

    Carpenter denounced, with an assist from host Kate Bolduan, who made it clear to the viewing audience that CNN had done no reporting to lend credibility to the Enquirer’s account.

    ‘It’s categorically false,’ Carpenter said. ‘You should be ashamed for spreading this smut. Donald Trump supporters should be held to account for it.’

    Cohen blasted back: ‘I’m not spreading smut,’ she said.

    ‘I will not be intimated,’ Carpenter replied. ‘I will continue to make my thoughts known about Donald Trump. I am not backing down.’

    On her Twitter page, Carpenter retweeted a show of support from prominent conservative pundit, who’s also on CNN, Mary Katherine Ham.

    ‘I am so with you, Amanda Carpenter & all the other women Trump & supporters casually smear,’ Ham wrote, including a block quote of Carpenter defending herself against Cohen on CNN.

    The original Enquirer story, which doesn’t appear online, but has been picked up by gossip sites like Gawker, says that political operatives are compiling a ‘dirt file’ on Cruz with private investigators looking into claims that he had affairs with a who’s who of Republican party politics – as well as a ‘sexy Austin schoolteacher’ and a ‘Washington, D.C. call girl.’

    Besides Pierson and Carpenter, the third political type worked for a different presidential campaign, which has now aligned itself with Cruz.

  60. fwiw…not familiar with this person or the site???

    Sharon, Dallas, United States, moments ago

    More importantly check out De-borah Je-ane Pal-frey, the D C ma-dam who said her book of names would put an end to a Republican candidate’s campaign. Most comments said Cruz would be the name in the book. But then the story went quiet and was hushed up. See the DM article Feb 3rd or the wtop site. The NE was not only right about Jo-hn Ed-wards but also Ga-ry Ha-rt. Bet they’re right on this too.

    Read more:

  61. Trump doesn’t have to say anything anymore at this point about their wives. This sex scandal, whether true or not, is threatening to capsize Cruz’s boat. Trump can now act presidential, keep his mouth shut, sit back and have a margarita while the feeding frenzy continues.

  62. If the FEC takes a second look at the $500,000 contribution made by Cruz’ campaign to Carly Fiorina’s campaign in light of accusations made that it was hush money to buy Fiorina’s silence over Cruz’s affair with her staff member, then the shit will really hit the fan.

  63. Tony…from your words to Donald’s ears

    Donald stay above it all and be presidential and keep talking about what you will do for the voters…please

    Melania and Ivanka should keep him away from twitter for awhile or only allow him one a day on something voters care about…not personal battles with this one and that one

  64. Tony, thanks for posting the clip…

    wow…CNN really protecting Cruz…Amanda looked taken aback…

    now the difference is, if this were Donald we would already be hearing about it 24/7

  65. Katrina Pierson works for Trump’s campaign, so I think he will stay quiet other than to say that he supports her during this Cuban Mistress Crisis.

    Tony, that is a legitamate question for all these media people to start asking?

    Why did the Cruz people do it and why is the FEC investigating it?

    or are they going to ignore that too

    If Donald says one word the media doesn’t it like they will twist it for days…but how long are they going to ignore this issue

  67. On Twitter, people are now switching from #CruzSexScandal to #CubanMistressCrisis. Reading the comments there is too entertaining for one’s health.

  68. I find it ironic that the Republican candidates, those that battle to claim they are the most conservative, end up fighting about the size of their penises or the women they have/had sex with.

    They also use Bill Clinton’s infidelity as an attack against Hillary.

    I think they are both blowing up their own chances of winning the nomination. Not enough Republican’s, Independents nor Democrats think this is Presidential behavior.

  69. Here is Trump’s response on his FB page to Cruz’s desperate accusations:

    I have no idea whether or not the cover story about Ted Cruz in this week’s issue of the National Enquirer is true or not, but I had absolutely nothing to do with it, did not know about it, and have not, as yet, read it.
    Likewise, I have nothing to do with the National Enquirer and unlike Lyin’ Ted Cruz I do not surround myself with political hacks and henchman and then pretend total innocence. Ted Cruz’s problem with the National Enquirer is his and his alone, and while they were right about O.J. Simpson, John Edwards, and many others, I certainly hope they are not right about Lyin’ Ted Cruz.
    I look forward to spending the week in Wisconsin, winning the Republican nomination and ultimately the Presidency in order to Make America Great Again.
    – Donald J. Trump

  70. Looks to me like CNN got scooped. Not the first time. Not even the hundreth time. They deal in lies, so when the truth comes out they are offended, through off balance and try to “move on” like a sailor moves on off the side of a sinking ship, or a resident in a burning apartment building strolls casually to the door. Notice as well that the first thing the young lady did was trash the source and the second thing was . . . ah . . deny it? No siree. The second thing she did was lawyer up. To some of us that is enough to show consciousness of guilt. In a criminal case, where the prosecution has wrapped itself in the American flag, accused client of unspeakable acts, what is the first thing the defense lawyer says when he rises to respond? That is a goddamned lie. The second thing he sometimes says is my client is eager for this opportunity to clear his name of these false and wreckless charges. And before this case is over you will prove to you just how false and wreckless these charges truly are. Simply put, the innocent want their day in court. The guilty hide behind lawyers and attack the source.

  71. “Ted Cruz’s problem with the National Enquirer is his and his alone, and while they were right about O.J. Simpson, John Edwards, and many others, I certainly hope they are not right about Lyin’ Ted Cruz.”

    Well played, Donald, planting the seed in readers’ minds about the Enquirer’s track record at exposing low lifes.

  72. unlike Lyin’ Ted Cruz I do not surround myself with political hacks and henchman and then pretend total innocence
    That is classic Obama as well. The first time I saw it was in South Carolina. It has been the imprimatur of his candidacy and presidency ever since. And it has destroyed the country.

  73. “unlike Lyin’ Ted Cruz I do not surround myself with political hacks and henchman and then pretend total innocence”

    Seriously? Obviously Donald Trump is teasing and joking since Roger Stone has been a big operator in his campaign and said he quit to sell his book but has been a Trump behind the scenes operator. And then there is Trump’s campaign manager Cory who has charges against him for roughing up or grabbing reporters and is also a know henchman operator.

    Mr. Trump has a great sense of humor.
