Update: The short-lived calm has been shattered. In Baton Rouge, Louisiana more police officers have been killed and shot by thugs dressed in “ninja style” battle fatigues. Three guardians of the law killed, three or four other law enforcement sentinels wounded. Decent citizens, black or white, will be less protected and therefore greatly agitated. Thugs, criminals, the left, will rejoice as their destruction of civil society continues.
Prayers and good thoughts, flowers, candles, won’t do a damn for civil society. Individual citizens engaged in prayer, reflection, commemoration, are entirely proper. But the civil society must respond with force, brutal force, to these assaults on the civil society. Just as with Muslim terrorists the response to their force must be brutal and overwhelming force. No more Mr. “Nice” guy.
We’ll be crass. This helps Donald J. Trump. According to the L.A. Times’ tracking poll, Trump is still trumping in the presidential race. Trump hater Tim Stanley finally realizes what we’ve known all along about Donald J. Trump, He is the law and order candidate in a time of grave disorder.
The thugs must be routed and imprisoned for long periods of time until they are too old and feeble to harm civil society. Muslim terrorists must be killed en masse without pity, remorse, or second thought. The West must be saved. Make America Great Again!
The stage is set. Before a great battle there is frenzied activity then silence. After the silence the guns begin to roar. A calm silence is the American presidential race at this point in time.
Today, sadly the coup in Turkey against the Islamist creep Erdogan failed as Obama aided his Muslim pal. Today also…. well, look at the recent past.
Just this past week we saw the #NeverTrump schemers sent to Hell, forced after a massive defeat in the Rules Committee to rodently abandon their disruptive plans at the convention itself. On Friday, Jeb Bush proved the irrelevance of the old GOP as he was forced to go to Big Media to publish his latest screed against Donald J. Trump.
It’s been a frenzied month and a crazy week:
On Sunday, June 12, we awoke to news of a massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando when a gunman walked into the club’s Latin night armed with a semiautomatic and a handgun and began spraying bullets across the dance floor. Forty-nine people would die and more than 50 would be injured. [snip]
But tremors from Orlando had barely subsided when another scene of carnage raced across screens from one of the world’s busiest airports about two weeks later. Three terrorists armed with bombs and guns killed 41 people and injured more than 100 in an assault at Istanbul Ataturk Airport in Turkey. [snip]
A week later our world was rocked again. This time by a cellphone video of a white police officer raising his gun and firing into the chest of Alton Sterling, a 37-year-old black man, outside a convenience store in Baton Rouge, La.
One day later, another shocking video was broadcast on Facebook Live: The girlfriend of Philando Castile, a beloved cafeteria worker, calmly explains how her boyfriend was just shot by a police officer during a traffic stop in Falcon Heights, Minn. Castile lies slumped next to her in a bloodied shirt, moaning, as a cop’s gun glistens outside the window of the car.
The shocking stretch was not done yet. The next night we watched as a sniper in Dallas sent ripples of panic through a crowd peacefully protesting police brutality. Videos showed the gunman sheltering behind a building column at El Centro College, then firing on officers point blank. Five cops were killed; 11 other people were injured.
It would be the deadliest day for law enforcement since 9/11.
And now we have Nice, where a festive celebration of Bastille Day along the banks of the French Riviera turned into a bloodbath when a man in a truck drove through the crowd along a promenade, killing 84 and injuring hundreds.
You can tell that account is from Big Media because thugs become victims celebrated by the black community and a Muslim who plows a field of people as if they were daisies is described as a generic “man” and a “madman with a truck”. Not mentioned, the Islamist who wants to turn Turkey into a theocracy is defended by Obama and the Obama third term. That’s why Americans want to Make America Great Again.
If we had an American president who believed in the values of the West, the coup in Turkey like the coup in Egypt could have been a great event, a real Arab Spring entirely unlike that Islamist concoction of the Muslim Brotherhood Obama praised. If we had an American president who believed in the values of the West, the Muslim creep who killed gay people in Orlando would have been an object lesson in the ugly values valued by Islam. If we had an American president who believed in the values of the West, the murderous Muslim rampage on Bastille Day would have been a rallying cry for the West against the prevalent philosophy of Islam.
We don’t have an American president who believes in the values of the West. We have treacherous, corrupt, Barack Obama.
Now, all the frenzy of the past few weeks and the full on crazy of the last week, is over. Now, there is the calm before the storm, the calm before the great battle. For Trump2016 the news is very good. The #NeverTrump creeps calculated that by today Donald J. Trump would be twenty or more points behind in the polls and they could stage their coup against the Republican primary voters using that poll weakness as a talking point. Instead, Trump is doing very well. Even in Virginia the latest polls have Trump ahead or competitive.
The polls help Trump politically as he deploys artillery, infantry, air forces, unifies command, reinforces positions, supplies his armada, and waits to give the order to “fire!” But for predictive value the polls won’t matter until after the opposition convention is a week old memory.
With the selection of Mike Pence, the obliteration of the opposition forces within his own party, the hostile takeover of the Republican Party near complete, world events and domestic events (such as the implosion of ObamaCare) proving Trump is more of a prophet and messenger than Mohammad, the field of battle is almost entire set. Soon, the guns will begin to fire.
The stage is set.
