Crusade In Europe: President Trump Liberates The West

Update: Power narrative. The great President Donald J. Trump is building a power narrative and taking little President of France Macron along. Think about all the roads that led to today. The American revolution in 1776 inspires the French revolution in 1789 which begins with the attack on the infamous imperial prison The Bastille. The Bastille is brought down by French revolutionaries so every year on July 14 the French commemorate Bastille Day the way we remember 1776.

Today is also the centennial marker for the day the United States entered “the great war” World War I. World War I was the most brutal war America has been in topping even the horror of the Civil War. World War I was really World War Part I and was continued by World War Part II. So there is President Donald J. Trump in Paris watching as for the first time ever American troops lead the Bastille Day parade.

Narrative building by President Donald J. Trump does not end there. As he did in Warsaw (see the main article below) President Donald J. Trump is in Paris at the biggest event in France on the day that marks the anniversary of the Muslim terror attack on Nice.

In one stunning historic moment President Donald J. Trump weaves together the historic paths America and the French people have traveled. Independence Day/Bastille Day. World War I/World War II. 9/11 Muslim Terror attacks/7-14 Nice Muslim Terror attacks. As he wove a narrative in Warsaw which echoed FDR and JFK, President Donald J. Trump wove a vast historic landscape in France today.

And the Trump triumph does not end there. With this visit President Donald J. Trump helps little French President Emmanuel Macron grow in stature. How? Well, the invitation to President Donald J. Trump from President Macron is a direct challenge to the German leadership of Europe and to the decayed Angela Merkel.

And still it does not end there. The fact that the French still assert their nationalist pride in the face of German government hostility to President Donald J. Trump brings to the fore the hopeless task the European Union’s attempt to end nationalism on the continent faces. Macron’s embrace of President Donald J. Trump is a slap in the face (dare we say “schlonging”) to Merkel and an assertion of leadership by the untested, untried, apprentice Macron.

A grateful Macron loves hisself some Trump (and once again Melania does America proud):


Sorry Big Media but President Donald J. Trump is très smart and knows how to woo other leaders without bowing to them.

——————————————————————

We’ve been here before. A destructive regime in Asia which threatens world-wide peace, a religious/political force for evil seemingly in ascendance, a vast Eurasian power willing and able to play off competing powers to its own advantage, a central European power aided and abetted by other European powers bent on a twisted vision of world organization.

In the 1930s it was the Japanese Empire set on war, a pagan leftist cult in Germany which categorized humanity into either “Supermen” or “sub-human”, the Soviet Union which aligned itself via a treaty with the Nazi cult only to later align itself with the Allied Powers after the treaty opened the door to a deep invasion, it was also Germany in the 30s that dreamed of a thousand year Reich which found allies in states such as Italy.

In 2017 it is North Korea in Asia armed with nuclear bombs which threatens, political Islam which terrorizes a cowering world afraid they will soon be overwhelmed so they attempt appeasement of the religious cult, Russia playing off of weakness – aligning itself with political Islam and threatening Europe with cutoff of energy supplies in order to regain its lost hegemonic powers, and once again in central Europe there is Germany with it’s dreams of a Europe under it’s economic heel prepared to align itself with Islam and thereby destroy Europe once again.

In the 1930s the long mocked Winston Churchill came to the rescue of “Christian civilization” against the pagans and destructive forces whether in Asia, Africa, or Europe.

In 2017 it is the often mocked Donald J. Trump who is prepared to fight for the West.

Five-star American General Dwight David Eisenhower wrote Crusade In Europe – his memoirs of the liberation of Europe. Eisenhower’s Crusade was a military one with many political/economic/geographic considerations. For President Trump his Crusade In Europe is also part of a world-wide war that the left refuses to acknowledge.

In the 1930s many in the left also refused to acknowledge reality. Indeed, many in the right and the center refused to acknowledge reality. It took Pearl Harbor to shake the great American giant awake. In Europe the danger became reality much earlier – because Great Britain and the French controlled territories in the East and Africa and the threats from the East could not be ignored and the vulnerabilities in Africa were obvious to hungry invaders. But it was Poland that shook the continent awake. It was after Poland was attacked, invaded, devoured, that the world-wide war began.

This past week President Donald J. Trump went to Poland.

In a trumpet call of clarity President Donald J. Trump echoed President Kennedy who in 1963 spoke from Berlin:

There are many people in the world who really don’t understand, or say they don’t, what is the great issue between the free world and the Communist world. Let them come to Berlin. There are some who say that communism is the wave of the future. Let them come to Berlin. And there are some who say in Europe and elsewhere we can work with the Communists. Let them come to Berlin. And there are even a few who say that it is true that communism is an evil system, but it permits us to make economic progress. Lass’sie nach Berlin kommen. Let them come to Berlin.



President Kennedy himself echoed President Franklin Roosevelt:

“If there is anyone who still wonders why this war is being fought, let him look to Norway. If there is anyone who has any delusions that this war could have been averted, let him look to Norway; and if there is anyone who doubts the democratic will to win, again I say, let him look to Norway.”



President Donald J. Trump in this great American tradition of brutal truth-telling told the world to look to Poland for the answers in 2017:

It is a profound honor to stand in this city, by this monument to the Warsaw Uprising, and to address the Polish nation that so many generations have dreamed of: a Poland that is safe, strong, and free. (Applause.) [snip]

We are also pleased that former President Lech Walesa, so famous for leading the Solidarity Movement, has joined us today, also. (Applause.) [snip]

To the citizens of this great region, America is eager to expand our partnership with you. We welcome stronger ties of trade and commerce as you grow your economies. And we are committed to securing your access to alternate sources of energy, so Poland and its neighbors are never again held hostage to a single supplier of energy. (Applause.) [snip]

Poland is the geographic heart of Europe, but more importantly, in the Polish people, we see the soul of Europe. Your nation is great because your spirit is great and your spirit is strong. (Applause.)

For two centuries, Poland suffered constant and brutal attacks. But while Poland could be invaded and occupied, and its borders even erased from the map, it could never be erased from history or from your hearts. In those dark days, you have lost your land but you never lost your pride. (Applause.)

So it is with true admiration that I can say today, that from the farms and villages of your countryside to the cathedrals and squares of your great cities, Poland lives, Poland prospers, and Poland prevails. (Applause.)

Despite every effort to transform you, oppress you, or destroy you, you endured and overcame. [snip]

For America’s part, we have never given up on freedom and independence as the right and destiny of the Polish people, and we never, ever will. (Applause.) [snip]

And so I am here today not just to visit an old ally, but to hold it up as an example for others who seek freedom and who wish to summon the courage and the will to defend our civilization. (Applause.) The story of Poland is the story of a people who have never lost hope, who have never been broken, and who have never, ever forgotten who they are. (Applause)

AUDIENCE: Donald Trump! Donald Trump! Donald Trump!

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you. Thank you so much. Such a great honor. This is a nation more than one thousand years old. Your borders were erased for more than a century and only restored just one century ago.

In 1920, in the Miracle of Vistula, Poland stopped the Soviet army bent on European conquest. (Applause.) Then, 19 years later in 1939, you were invaded yet again, this time by Nazi Germany from the west and the Soviet Union from the east. That’s trouble. That’s tough.

Under a double occupation the Polish people endured evils beyond description: the Katyn forest massacre, the occupations, the Holocaust, the Warsaw Ghetto and the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, the destruction of this beautiful capital city, and the deaths of nearly one in five Polish people. A vibrant Jewish population — the largest in Europe — was reduced to almost nothing after the Nazis systematically murdered millions of Poland’s Jewish citizens, along with countless others, during that brutal occupation.

In the summer of 1944, the Nazi and Soviet armies were preparing for a terrible and bloody battle right here in Warsaw. Amid that hell on earth, the citizens of Poland rose up to defend their homeland. I am deeply honored to be joined on stage today by veterans and heroes of the Warsaw Uprising. (Applause.) [snip]

This monument reminds us that more than 150,000 Poles died during that desperate struggle to overthrow oppression.

From the other side of the river, the Soviet armed forces stopped and waited. They watched as the Nazis ruthlessly destroyed the city, viciously murdering men, women, and children. They tried to destroy this nation forever by shattering its will to survive.

But there is a courage and a strength deep in the Polish character that no one could destroy. The Polish martyr, Bishop Michael Kozal, said it well: “More horrifying than a defeat of arms is a collapse of the human spirit.”

Through four decades of communist rule, Poland and the other captive nations of Europe endured a brutal campaign to demolish freedom, your faith, your laws, your history, your identity — indeed the very essence of your culture and your humanity. Yet, through it all, you never lost that spirit. (Applause.) Your oppressors tried to break you, but Poland could not be broken. (Applause.)

And when the day came on June 2nd, 1979, and one million Poles gathered around Victory Square for their very first mass with their Polish Pope, that day, every communist in Warsaw must have known that their oppressive system would soon come crashing down. (Applause.) They must have known it at the exact moment during Pope John Paul II’s sermon when a million Polish men, women, and children suddenly raised their voices in a single prayer. A million Polish people did not ask for wealth. They did not ask for privilege. Instead, one million Poles sang three simple words: “We Want God.” (Applause.)

In those words, the Polish people recalled the promise of a better future. They found new courage to face down their oppressors, and they found the words to declare that Poland would be Poland once again.

As I stand here today before this incredible crowd, this faithful nation, we can still hear those voices that echo through history. Their message is as true today as ever. The people of Poland, the people of America, and the people of Europe still cry out “We want God.” (Applause.)

Together, with Pope John Paul II, the Poles reasserted their identity as a nation devoted to God. And with that powerful declaration of who you are, you came to understand what to do and how to live. You stood in solidarity against oppression, against a lawless secret police, against a cruel and wicked system that impoverished your cities and your souls. And you won. Poland prevailed. Poland will always prevail. (Applause.)

That trip through a memory lane of horrors was the preface to President Donald J. Trump’s grandest proposal of all, the liberation of the West:

This continent no longer confronts the specter of communism. But today we’re in the West, and we have to say there are dire threats to our security and to our way of life. You see what’s happening out there. They are threats. We will confront them. We will win. But they are threats. (Applause.)

AUDIENCE: Donald Trump! Donald Trump! Donald Trump!

PRESIDENT TRUMP: We are confronted by another oppressive ideology — one that seeks to export terrorism and extremism all around the globe. America and Europe have suffered one terror attack after another. We’re going to get it to stop. (Applause.) [snip]

We must stand united against these shared enemies to strip them of their territory and their funding, and their networks, and any form of ideological support that they may have. While we will always welcome new citizens who share our values and love our people, our borders will always be closed to terrorism and extremism of any kind. (Applause.)

AUDIENCE: Donald Trump! Donald Trump! Donald Trump!

PRESIDENT TRUMP: We are fighting hard against radical Islamic terrorism, and we will prevail. We cannot accept those who reject our values and who use hatred to justify violence against the innocent.

Today, the West is also confronted by the powers that seek to test our will, undermine our confidence, and challenge our interests. To meet new forms of aggression, including propaganda, financial crimes, and cyberwarfare, we must adapt our alliance to compete effectively in new ways and on all new battlefields.

We urge Russia to cease its destabilizing activities in Ukraine and elsewhere, and its support for hostile regimes — including Syria and Iran — and to instead join the community of responsible nations in our fight against common enemies and in defense of civilization itself. (Applause.)

President Donald J. Trump’s Crusade in Europe is not only a world-wide fight against ideologies and powers that threaten the West from outside. President Donald J. Trump made explicit that the fight to liberate the West must also be a fight against domestic enemies:

Finally, on both sides of the Atlantic, our citizens are confronted by yet another danger — one firmly within our control. This danger is invisible to some but familiar to the Poles: the steady creep of government bureaucracy that drains the vitality and wealth of the people. The West became great not because of paperwork and regulations but because people were allowed to chase their dreams and pursue their destinies.

Americans, Poles, and the nations of Europe value individual freedom and sovereignty. We must work together to confront forces, whether they come from inside or out, from the South or the East, that threaten over time to undermine these values and to erase the bonds of culture, faith and tradition that make us who we are. (Applause.) If left unchecked, these forces will undermine our courage, sap our spirit, and weaken our will to defend ourselves and our societies.

But just as our adversaries and enemies of the past learned here in Poland, we know that these forces, too, are doomed to fail if we want them to fail. And we do, indeed, want them to fail. (Applause.) They are doomed not only because our alliance is strong, our countries are resilient, and our power is unmatched. Through all of that, you have to say everything is true. Our adversaries, however, are doomed because we will never forget who we are. And if we don’t forget who are, we just can’t be beaten. Americans will never forget. The nations of Europe will never forget. We are the fastest and the greatest community. There is nothing like our community of nations. The world has never known anything like our community of nations.

We write symphonies. We pursue innovation. We celebrate our ancient heroes, embrace our timeless traditions and customs, and always seek to explore and discover brand-new frontiers.

We reward brilliance. We strive for excellence, and cherish inspiring works of art that honor God. We treasure the rule of law and protect the right to free speech and free expression. (Applause.)

We empower women as pillars of our society and of our success. We put faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, at the center of our lives. And we debate everything. We challenge everything. We seek to know everything so that we can better know ourselves. (Applause.)

And above all, we value the dignity of every human life, protect the rights of every person, and share the hope of every soul to live in freedom. That is who we are. Those are the priceless ties that bind us together as nations, as allies, and as a civilization.

What we have, what we inherited from our — and you know this better than anybody, and you see it today with this incredible group of people — what we’ve inherited from our ancestors has never existed to this extent before. And if we fail to preserve it, it will never, ever exist again. So we cannot fail.

This great community of nations has something else in common: In every one of them, it is the people, not the powerful, who have always formed the foundation of freedom and the cornerstone of our defense. The people have been that foundation here in Poland — as they were right here in Warsaw — and they were the foundation from the very, very beginning in America.

Our citizens did not win freedom together, did not survive horrors together, did not face down evil together, only to lose our freedom to a lack of pride and confidence in our values. We did not and we will not. We will never back down. [snip]

The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive. Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it? (Applause.)

That section of President Donald J. Trump’s speech echoed the Star Spangled Banner. “Oh say, does that Star Spangled Banner yet wave, over the land of the free and the home of the brave?” President Trump made the question a global one for the West: “Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?”

For those that do not know the answer to those questions, President Trump says ‘look to Poland’:

We can have the largest economies and the most lethal weapons anywhere on Earth, but if we do not have strong families and strong values, then we will be weak and we will not survive. (Applause.) If anyone forgets the critical importance of these things, let them come to one country that never has. Let them come to Poland. (Applause.) [snip]

Our own fight for the West does not begin on the battlefield — it begins with our minds, our wills, and our souls. Today, the ties that unite our civilization are no less vital, and demand no less defense, than that bare shred of land on which the hope of Poland once totally rested. Our freedom, our civilization, and our survival depend on these bonds of history, culture, and memory.

And today as ever, Poland is in our heart, and its people are in that fight. (Applause.) Just as Poland could not be broken, I declare today for the world to hear that the West will never, ever be broken. Our values will prevail. Our people will thrive. And our civilization will triumph. (Applause.)

AUDIENCE: Donald Trump! Donald Trump! Donald Trump!

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you. So, together, let us all fight like the Poles — for family, for freedom, for country, and for God.

Thank you. God Bless You. God bless the Polish people. God bless our allies. And God bless the United States of America.



We’ve written about the West on Christmas. We’ve written about the West on Thanksgiving. We’ve written about Poland and the fight to save the West frequently. The survival of Poland is an inspiration to anyone who loathes totalitarianism, as we do.

When the workers in the “workers paradise” of Soviet-Russia-imposed-brutality rebelled in Poland, the end of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was assured. The “captive nations” became free.



The weapons of liberation were truth and fearlessness. “It pretended to be the people’s system.” “We set about using truth to conquer untruth.”



At that moment of liberation for Poland, when Soviet Communists fought to continue to force their totalitarian system of slavery on Poland, Ronald Reagan and the now sainted Pope John Paul II were partners. President Donald J. Trump does not have a partner in the Vatican. President Donald J. Trump has no partners in France, Germany, and even Great Britain is wobbly.

President Donald J. Trump has no partners in the Western Powers in his fight to save the West. His partners are mostly in the nations such as Poland which once were “captive nations” and nations under threat such as Israel. Fortunately, President Donald J. Trump has history and the truth on his side. Like Gideon, President Donald J. Trump is raised to liberate the West:

The West is under attack. Christians are under attack. Civility is under attack. Free thought and liberty are under attack by “hate speech” laws. The totalitarians are on the march just as in Winston Churchill’s day. Donald J. Trump was Churchill. Today President-Elect Donald J. Trump is a Gideon – raised to save the West.

On American Big Media the story is all about the little things. To American Big Media after the July 4 holiday and the return of the congress from vacation, the news is all about their hoped for collapse of the ObamaCare repeal efforts, a renewed effort to breathe life into the dead Russia story using Donald Trump Jr. as the latest in a long line of resuscitation efforts, foolish defenses of Comey’s latest lies and crimes, along with any story that demeans President Donald J. Trump. Imagine the British and American media in 1942 publishing endless attacks and “analysis” about Winston Churchill’s enjoyment of cigars and Scotch.

Already President Donald J. Trump has removed the energy threat America was exposed to during the Jimmy Carter presidency. President Donald J. Trump already has made America energy independent and further intends to make America energy DOMINANT, which will make Russia’s threats against Europe null and void.

President Donald J. Trump is set to not only Make America Great Again. Already the grander goal that President Donald J. Trump will achieve, despite Big Media and the degenerate political establishment of the West, is the salvation and liberation of the West. To that end, academia, the deep states, the establishments of the political parties, the corporate masters, the government bureaucrats, are all under threat.



That is what in 2017 we fight for. That’s what the fight is about. Much as Eisenhower sent Patton’s tanks through the fields of a defeated Europe, President Trump means to liberate Europe and the West.



Look at the fall of the Berlin Wall, look to valiant Norway, look to Poland. Look to America, the arsenal of Democracy. Look to the light that will save the West.

  1. Big Media will portray this next visit as a way to lure President Trump back into the fold of European leaders. But President Trump is going to Paris on the anniversary of the truck killings in Nice to remind Europe of the Islamist threat, not to be weak:

    President Trump to attend Paris July 14 celebrations

    PARIS (Reuters) – President Donald Trump will travel to France for the Bastille Day military celebrations on July 14, President Emmanuel Macron’s office said on Wednesday, in a sign the allies are seeking to bolster ties despite differences over climate change.

    The French presidency and White House said Trump had accepted an invitation to make the visit, which will also commemorate the U.S. entry into World War One 100 years ago.

    “The two leaders will further build on the strong counter-terrorism cooperation and economic partnership between the two countries,” the White House said in a statement.

    Macron appears to be broadly aligning his foreign policy with U.S. priorities of tackling terrorism while seeking better ties with Russia.

    But the two leaders publicly clashed after Trump said he would pull out of a global accord on action to combat climate change.

    “Beyond our differences on some subjects such as climate, it shows the strength and the links in our transatlantic ties and the convergence of views on counter-terrorism and our joint commitment in war zones,” said a French diplomat.

    After the United States, France is the biggest contributor to the coalition fighting Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria.

    The July 14 festivities see thousands of men and women from France’s army, navy and air force march down the Champs Elysees avenue in Paris. The U.S. military will this year march with French forces.

    On July 14, 1789, crowds stormed the Bastille prison, where opponents of the monarchy were held, at the start of the French Revolution. [snip]

    “Donald Trump is violent and there’s no reason for him being here,” a far-left lawmaker and former French presidential candidate said on Wednesday.

    “He is not welcome. That’s clear,” Jean-Luc Melenchon, leader of the France Unbowed movement, told Europe 1 radio.

    President of Pittsburgh, not Paris.

    U.S. carrier group leads biggest yet drills with India and Japan

    A U.S. aircraft carrier strike group began naval exercises with India and Japan on Monday that the U.S. navy said would help the three countries tackle maritime threats in the Asia-Pacific region.

    The annual exercises named Malabar are being held off India. They are the largest since India and the United States launched the exercise in 1992. Japan was later included.

    “Malabar 2017 is the latest in a continuing series of exercises that has grown in scope and complexity over the years to address the variety of shared threats to maritime security in the Indo-Asia Pacific,” the U.S. Pacific command said.

    Military officials say the drills involving the U.S. carrier USS Nimitz, India’s lone carrier Vikramaditya and Japan’s biggest warship, the helicopter carrier Izumo, are aimed at helping to maintain a balance of power in the Asia-Pacific against the rising weight of China.

    The three countries have been concerned about China’s claims to almost all of the waters of the South China Sea, and more broadly, its expanding military presence across the region.

    Chinese submarines, for example, recently docked in Sri Lanka, an island just off the southern tip of India that it has long seen as squarely in its back yard.

    The maritime drills are taking place as India and China are locked in a standoff on their land border in the Himalayas.

    The U.S. Pacific command said in a statement the exercises would help the three countries operate together and it was learning how to integrate with the Indian navy.

    India and the United States were for decades on opposite sides of a Cold War divide but have in recent years become major defense partners.

    China has in the past criticized the exercises as destabilizing to the region.

    India this year turned down an Australian request to join the exercises for now, for fear that would antagonize China further.

  3. Many thanks as always, BP. This helped me pull together a post card I’d been struggling with. With proper credit. Also on Twitter, FB.
    Checking back to regular stuff at Twitter, I see WashEx is not far behind you.

    It is important that the Jr & HC talk does not diminish what we witnessed in Warsaw.

  4. My only hope is that Trump’s own countrymen don’t destroy him in the meantime. The knives out for his back are increasing with each passing day.

  5. He took the elevator straight to Hell:

    http://www.iraqinews.com/iraq-war/sources-islamic-state-declares-baghdadi-dead-successor-named-soon/

    The Islamic State has declared its runaway supreme leader dead, announcing it was going to name a successor soon, a source in Nineveh province said, the latest episode in clashing, unconfirmed reports around the leader’s survival.

    Alsumaria News quoted a local source Tuesday saying that IS made a brief statement in the town of Tal Afar, west of Mosul, in which it confirmed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s death without adding further details except stressing an imminent declaration of a successor and a call upon fighters to remain resilient.

    Chaos flared in Tal Afar following the declaration, according to Alsumaria News’s sources. Infighting among Baghdadi’s loyalists and opponents broke out, prompting the group to carry out wide-scale arrests and to impose a curfew at most of the town.

    Rumors are he was killed by his own henchmen. Now there is an inner circle fight to be the next “leader” and be the next to die.

  6. This article published today adds to our article:

    https://townhall.com/columnists/dennisprager/2017/07/11/the-atlantic-publishes-all-you-need-to-know-about-the-left-n2353102

    The Atlantic Publishes All You Need to Know About the Left

    Last week, The Atlantic rendered a great service to those of us who contend that America is in the midst of a civil war between the right and the left. It provided a smoking gun — actually, the gunshot itself — to those of us who contend that the left (never to be confused with liberals) is intent on dismantling Western civilization.

    It published articles by two left-wing writers, one by Peter Beinart titled “The Racial and Religious Paranoia of Trump’s Warsaw Speech,” and one by its national correspondent, James Fallows, written on the same theme as Beinart’s.

    The subject of both articles was President Donald Trump’s speech in Warsaw, Poland, last week, a speech described by The Wall Street Journal as “a determined and affirmative defense of the Western tradition.”

    Yet, to the Atlantic writers, defending Western civilization is nothing more than a defense of white racism.

    Beinart begins his piece saying: “In his speech in Poland on Thursday, Donald Trump referred 10 times to ‘the West’ and five times to ‘our civilization.’ His white nationalist supporters will understand exactly what he means. It’s important that other Americans do, too.”

    And Fallows begins saying, “what he called ‘civilization’ … boils down to ties of ethnicity and blood.”

    Is there one liberal or conservative American who thinks that the words “the West” and “Western civilization” mean a celebration of white-blood purity?

    I doubt it.

    What we have here are two vital lessons. 

    One is that leftism is the primary racist ideology of our time, seeing everything in terms of race, whereas mainstream liberalism and conservatism advocate a race-blind society as manifest in Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “content of his character” line. The left disdains this view.

    To cite one of innumerable examples, the University of California has published a list of biased “microaggression” statements students and faculty are to avoid. One of them is “There is only one race, the human race.”

    In other words, the left, which controls our universities, teaches American students that it is wrong to believe in one human race. That was precisely what the Nazis taught German students. And now, we have another expression of this doctrine enunciated in the pages of The Atlantic: that those who wish to protect or save Western civilization are talking about saving the white race.

    I am certainly not equating leftism with Nazism. The left doesn’t seek to annihilate all Jews (it merely supports the Palestinians, who seek to annihilate the Jewish state). I am merely stating an unassailable truth: No significant political movement since the Nazis has “honored” race or equated Western civilization with race, as Beinart and Fallows do.

    The second service provided by The Atlantic writers is proof that the left loathes Western civilization and therefore has become the internal enemy of Western civilization both in America and Europe.

    In the left’s eyes, the mere suggestion that Western civilization needs to be saved is, by definition, a call for the preservation of the white race. Therefore, the left opposes calls to save Western civilization. As Beinart wrote: “The most shocking sentence in Trump’s speech — perhaps the most shocking sentence in any presidential speech delivered on foreign soil in my lifetime — was his claim that ‘The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive.’ … Trump’s sentence only makes sense as a statement of racial and religious paranoia.”

    Those of us who have long equated the left with opposition to Western civilization are vindicated. We didn’t need Beinart and Fallows — we already had innumerable examples, such as the University of Pennsylvania English department removing its longstanding poster of William Shakespeare because he was a white male — but in their explicit articulation of the left’s view, they are immensely helpful.

    Shakespeare is read in every language that has an alphabet not because he was white or European but because he is regarded as the greatest playwright who ever lived. But the leftists who run that English department place race (and gender) above excellence — a thorough rejection of Western values.

    Ironically, outside of liberals and conservatives, those most likely to celebrate Western values are likely to not be Western. The Japanese would scoff at the idea that Bach and Beethoven did not write the greatest music ever composed. That is why some of the greatest Bach recordings of our time come from Japanese musicians living in Japan. Nor would the Japanese deny that their modern country’s democratic values come from the West.

    The West’s disdain for its own values seems to getting increasingly strident with each passing day. President Trump is making an important and laudable effort to reverse this trend. He’s walking in good company. In an address to the Pan-American Scientific Congress in Washington, D.C., on May 10, 1940, then-President Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “Americans might have to become the guardian of Western culture, the protector of Christian civilization.” FDR frequently spoke about protecting both Western and Christian civilization.

    We owe a debt of gratitude to The Atlantic, CNN (whose senior White House correspondent Jeff Zeleny described Trump’s address as a “white America, America first kind of speech”) and others. They have made it clear that the left has contempt for Western civilization and therefore constitutes the greatest threat to its survival.

    The left must be attacked and removed from the institutions of power and academia it long plotted to systematically dominate and control. The left, as our article states is the domestic enemy that must be defeated.

  7. Drudge has gone almost full on NeverTrump in his selection of articles from Fake News Media to post.

  8. It appears the progressives’ new plan is to nibble Trump to death. By misdirection and innuendo the media is reduced to attacking a non-government citizen in the person of Donald Jr. Simply speaking to someone who asks for his time is collusion and non-disclosure (of what no one will say) by a private person who is not employed by the government, has no legal obligation to report on on who he has spoken with in a political campaign prior to an election, received no money or anything of any value, and was lied to about the purpose of said “meeting” by a PR hack “who knows a guy”. CNN, the world leader in buffoonery, is reduced to headlines such as “New Don Jr. emails suggest willingness to collude”. http://www.cnn.com/videos/tv/2017/07/11/tl-tapper-top-trump-staffers-willing-to-collude-live.cnn More thought-crimes and intent-crimes and CNN-as-Stasi-crimes. Are we as simple US citizens, which is all that Don Jr is, required to report our emails, conversations, thought processes, our intent, to CNN or the media in general? Is everything supposed to go through CNN now? Or what? Doxxing maybe. Theft of private emails, phone conversations, leaking?

    Progressive institutions such as the media are failing. This is the in last stages of failure. Crazy universities are failing such as Mizzou with collapsing student enrollment and finances with (Horrors!) with huge layoffs of progressive elite prof’s getting laid off. And the Stasi administrators as sex police are getting sued by their victims (big business for plaintiff attorneys of young men expelled based upon progressive-fascist standards). Not only can’t the progressives get elected in a huge area of the country, the ones in office are driving their areas into bankruptcy. De Blasio virtue signalling in Germany while the subways literally fall apart and the city that never sleeps sees everyone late for work. This is progressive institutional failure. And let’s not forget Hawaii the state covered with homeless people (great place to camp out and beg and defecate in tourist areas too) fixated on asking the Supreme Court over and over the same question that they answered in a ruling. Nibbling, annoying, screaming, childish, why-why-why, progressivism can’t run a subway, keep paying students, nor dispose of shit.

    And now the arrested development clown-led plot of a set-up by the Kremlin’s purported “crown prosecutor” (the last tsar appointed this woman?) is shown in a photo sitting with one of Obama’s hack ambassadors in a congressional hearing. Amazingly stupid hack Brits (being paid I’m sure like Christopher Steele, spy and ex-commie president of the Cambridge Union Society when he had great prospects and pre-washout as a civil servant), various Russians who are oligarch stooges, Fusion GPS the oppo-research and slob, dirty (and incompetent but what do you expect from Jeb and Hillary paid doofuses) liars, Comey covering it up but leaking it too, DOJ getting FISA warrants based on possible Monty Python skits, and poor, bought, fat old Congressman Cummings trotted out on cue to shriek TREASON.

    Everything has a cycle. Institutions, societies, movements, economics, weather, life. This may not be the end of progressivism but it is at least the beginning of the end which is increasingly and glaringly obvious cascading failure.

  9. One of the things I learned as a young man was when to jump. It can be very scary especially when you see failure, implosion, grotesque incompetence, etc late. There are some early, tentative signs that some Democrats are seeing the failure and if not ready to jump they are willing to start praying. An example is a couple of dummies in the Senate want to work on Obamacare with Old Turtle-head the majority leader. Why? Failure. There are states who are going to have no, as in ZERO, health insurance carriers willing to write a crap policy for anyone at any price. The death spiral is hitting as the progressives had planned after Obama was out of office and instead of Hillary doing Hillarycare Single Payer Step One they got Trump Let It All Go Boom. My guess is that California Single Payer legislation was pre-planned as part of the plan but it too was a cluster-mess with the state’s finances in even worse shape than they had planned and of course no Hillary to bail them out. Now the Democrats realize they have failure of their signature issue, they call it healthcare but it is health insurance financing, in 2018 which is an election year. Obamacare is 100% on them. They OWN it. When to jump?
    Lucky Trump.

  10. Not only innocent, but smart:

    http://lawnewz.com/opinion/why-donald-trump-jr-is-innocent-period/

    Donald Trump Jr. took a meeting from someone claiming evidence of foreign corruption by Hillary Clinton. The meeting proved useless. Donald Trump Jr. released the emails leading to the meeting. It is clear from the documents and statements of all involved that Donald Trump Jr. did nothing wrong. He broke no law. This isn’t like Hillary Clinton’s husband soliciting donations disguised as speech payments, travel costs, and charity work, while Hillary was Secretary of State. Based solely on the fact the source of the information was a Yeltsin-era prosecutor from Russia, a few anti-Trump lawyers falsely accuse Trump Jr. of a crime.

    American law imposed no restrictions on foreign donations for almost all of its history until that ethical icon Lyndon Baines Johnson was President. Then, after Watergate, those restrictions on foreign funding of American elections was mostly enacted through incorporation of Watergate-era reforms. Exceptions always existed: only cash donations, or the like, were prohibited and green card holders exempt. Most relevant here, volunteer services of any kind were completely legal, reflecting Constitutional concerns with restrictions on anything other than campaign cash. More than a few noted the irony of America lecturing the world about foreign influence in domestic elections, given our intelligence services turned it into an art form.

    The Code of Federal Regulations makes the law immunizing Trump Jr.’s actions precisely clear: any foreign national individual may volunteer personal services to a federal candidate or federal political committee without making a contribution. The law provides this volunteer “exemption” as long as the individual performing the service is not compensated by anyone on the campaign. See 11 CFR 100.74. For example, as the Federal Election Commission advises all, “an individual can provide volunteer services to a candidate or party without considering the value of those service a contribution to the candidate or party.” Section 30121 of Title 52 does not apply to voluntary activity or services. The thing “of value” must be actual money, or its transferable equivalent, not a volunteer of services or information. Otherwise, if volunteering information in coordination with a campaign constituted donations, everyone from John Harwood to Chuck Todd (and maybe all of CNN) made millions in donations to the Hillary campaign, as WikiLeaks emails disclosed.

    Hence, legally, Donald Trump Jr. taking a meeting at the request of a family friend, to hear someone wanting to volunteer information about your Dad’s adversary, can legally be no crime. He did what a loyal son, honorable friend, and smart advocate would do — hear them out. Anyone who thinks that’s a crime is the one who needs to have their values checked.

  11. Rush sounds despondent today especially with the witch hunt and the Rinos in the Congress and Senate.

  12. gonzotx says Rush sounds “despondent” so I know the opposite is true Thanks for the good news, moby!

  13. Admin,
    I really have been looking forward to your posts and this one was well worth the wait. It so brings it all together and puts it in perspective. The magnitude of what Trump is trying to do is mind boggling. He has really put himself out there and we need to get behind him and fight. So just how do we do that?

  14. [Obama’s] DOJ let Russian lawyer into US before she met with Trump team…

    The Russian lawyer who penetrated Donald Trump’s inner circle was initially cleared into the United States by the Justice Department under “extraordinary circumstances” before she embarked on a lobbying campaign last year that ensnared the president’s eldest son, members of Congress, journalists and State Department officials, according to court and Justice Department documents and interviews.

    This revelation means it was the Obama Justice Department that enabled the newest and most intriguing figure in the Russia-Trump investigation to enter the country without a visa.

    Later, a series of events between an intermediary for the attorney and the Trump campaign ultimately led to the controversy surrounding the president’s eldest son.

    Just five days after meeting in June 2016 at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr., presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner and then Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Moscow attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya showed up in Washington in the front row of a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Russia policy, video footage of the hearing shows.

    She also engaged in a pro-Russia lobbying campaign and attended an event at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. where Russian supporters showed a movie that challenged the underpinnings of the U.S. human rights law known as the Magnitysky Act, which Russian leader Vladimir Putin has reviled and tried to reverse.

  16. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/michael-barone-anti-trump-overreach-could-backfire/article/2628477

    Start with Trump’s speech in Warsaw last week. “As the Polish experience reminds us,” he said after recounting in vivid detail how Poland rebounded from decades of horrors, “The defense of the West ultimately rests not only on means, but also on the will of its people to prevail. The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive.”

    Vitriolic criticism was quick to come from the left. “A statement of racial and religious paranoia,” wrote the Atlantic’s Peter Beinart. “The West is a racial and religious term,” he explained. An “alt-right” speech, said the New Republic’s Jeet Heer, “meant to conjure blood-and-soil nationalism.”

    But Trump’s text included praise of Poland’s and Western civilizations’ resistance to Nazi and Communist totalitarianism, empowering women, striving for excellence, valuing the dignity of human life, debating and challenging “everything.” Presumably, Trump’s critics embrace each of these products of Western civilization.

    Nonetheless, they sneer at Trump’s pledge to oppose “another oppressive ideology — one that seeks to export terrorism and extremism all around the globe.” But that threat of Islamic terrorism is real.

    Trump was speaking for those, like Britain’s Douglas Murray in his book, The Strange Death of Europe, who fear that European leaders’ welcome of millions of unvetted Muslim “refugees” threatens to degrade and perhaps destroy the liberal achievements of the West. That is not racism, but prudence.

    To maintain the opposite, to advocate entirely open borders, is not only problematic politically, but also as public policy. In the weeks since Trump spoke, Western eminences not considered illiberal have questioned the wisdom of allowing unlimited immigration to the West by peoples in African countries whose populations, according to United Nations projections, are set to zoom far above European levels.

    Bill Gates, whose philanthropy has contributed to that growth, called for turning back boats of would-be migrants in the Mediterranean and said the influx to Germany is unsustainable. European Parliament President Antonio Lajani predicted an exodus “of biblical proportions” if migration is not limited now. French President Emanuel Macron said that Africa’s “civilizational” problems — “failed states,” “violent fundamentalism,” “Islamic terrorism” — make unlimited migration undesirable.

    To call these statements “racism” or “dog whistles” to “white nationalists” is nonsense.

    Immigration Shocker: Trump Administration May Bail on DACA

    DHS secretary suggests Obama executive amnesty not safe after all, feds won’t defend in court

    Facing the threat of a lawsuit from Texas and nine other states, the Trump administration indicated Wednesday that it may decline to defend DACA in court, a move that would likely result in the end of the program that granted amnesty to illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. when they were children.

    Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly went up to Capitol Hill on Wednesday afternoon to address members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, telling them, according to reports, that although he personally supports the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, he can’t promise that the administration will defend it if challenged.

    Several members of Congress pressured Kelly in the meeting, and he responded by suggesting they work to pass a law.

    Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, a Cuban-American and a Democrat, told reporters after the meeting: “It’s not a pretty picture.”

    At issue is the 2012 memorandum signed by President Barack Obama that allowed people brought to the U.S. illegally as children to apply for two-year work permits, and to be granted a reprieve from deportation. Anyone under 30 years of age who came to the U.S. illegally before the age of 16 and before June of 2007 is eligible.

    The program was referred to by critics as a blanket amnesty, as it has effectively legalized more than 750,000 people who have been granted DACA status. These people have been able to live and work in the U.S. as though they were legal residents.

    The Pew Research Center has estimated that another one million people already in the U.S. may qualify for DACA.

    The policy led to a surge at the border in 2014 and 2015, with many families and unaccompanied minors flowing into Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico.

    Logically, it really was the signal that if you get your kids here, we’ll let you stay,” Ira Mehlman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform told LifeZette.

    At the end of June, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, along with nine other state attorneys general, sent a letter to the Trump administration, threatening to sue if the administration did not, by Sept. 5, 2017, rescind the memo that created DACA.

    If, by September 5, 2017, the executive branch agrees to rescind the June 15, 2012, DACA memorandum and not to renew or issue any new DACA or Expanded DACA permits in the future, then the plaintiffs that successfully challenged [Deferred Action for Parents of Americans] and Expanded DACA will voluntarily dismiss their lawsuit currently pending in the Southern District of Texas,” he wrote. “Otherwise, the complaint in that case will be amended to challenge both the DACA program and the remaining Expanded DACA permits.”

    During the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump repeatedly said about illegal immigrants: “They can’t stay.”

    Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation,” he said at one rally.

    At another he promised: “We will immediately terminate President Obama’s two illegal executive amnesties, in which he defied federal law and the Constitution to give amnesty to approximately 5 million illegal immigrants.”

    But after he was inaugurated, Trump softened and seemed to indicate that he wouldn’t prioritize ending DACA, saying about so-called dreamers: “They shouldn’t be very worried, I do have a big heart.”

    The problem is, DACA is illegal,” Mark Kirikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies said last month. In January, he’d written that it seemed as though Trump was breaking his promise on DACA by continuing to approve DACA status for illegal aliens.

    Krikorian estimated that during the first three months of 2017, the Trump administration gave access to work permits, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, tax credits, and more to 13,436 illegal aliens — an average of 192 a day.

    In June, Kelly rescinded the 2014 executive order that created the DAPA program, saying that he saw no legal path forward for the program in the face of a lawsuit brought by Texas and the other states.

    The Washington Post reports that one member of Congress who was in the meeting with Kelly on Wednesday, Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez (D-Ill.), was visibly shaken afterwards, saying, “Jeff Sessions is going to say, ‘Deport them.’ If you’re going to count on Jeff Sessions to save DACA, then DACA is ended.”

    Pack those bags and be thankful for the years here.

  18. More on DACA:

    http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-government/white-house/article161030769.html

    Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly told members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus that the fate of deferred action program known as DACA — Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals — will likely be determined by the courts, perhaps as soon as September, and that attorneys he’s consulted with do not think the program is legally sustainable. Kelly also would not commit to extending temporary protected status, or TPS, for nationals from Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and four other countries, but indicated that TPS for Haitians will likely end.

    I have never left a meeting so emotionally affected than from what I just heard inside,” said U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., who estimated that millions of people could be deported. [snip]

    The Trump administration has until Sept. 5 to decide if the administration will phase out DACA or risk a court challenge from the states. [snip]

    Concerns that DACA could be eliminated are significant because of the Texas threat. The courts already struck down a similar policy proposal that would have expanded the eligible population via another program known as DAPA — Deferred Actions for Parents of Americans — that also lengthened the accompanying work permits to three years. Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the appellate court’s decision in a split decision. [snip]

    “From his point of view, in conversations he’s had with attorneys both inside and outside the department, that most of them felt that DACA as it exists, is not legally sustainable,” said David Lapan, DHS press secretary. “That was his personal observation.”

  19. Melania in Dior in Paris:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4693250/Melania-Trump-speaks-French-Paris-children-s-hospital.html

    First Lady Melania Trump dusted off her French to charm a group of sick children at a Parisian hospital on Thursday.

    Shortly after touching down in Paris, Melania was whisked off to Necker Hospital where she visited the Enfants Malades wing.

    Beaming in her red skirt suit, she greeted the children with soft ‘bonjours’ before taking her seat at a play table.

    The 47-year-old then introduced herself enthusiastically.

    ‘Je m’appelle Melania. Et toi?’ she gestured to one child, urging them to share their name. [snip]

    French is one of six languages the first lady is believed to speak. Slovenian is her native tongue and was the first she learned.

    She is also widely reported to speak Italian, German and Serbo-Croatian. Her grasp of Italian and French came from the four years she spent living and working as a model in Milan and Paris between 1992 and 1996, when she moved to New York. [snip]

    German and English are the foreign languages most commonly taught in Slovenian schools, followed by French. It’s not clear whether Melania had a taste of any before she quit her university degree in design to leave her home country in the early 1990s.

    Her supporters have often used her language skills as weaponry against her critics.

    It seemed only natural that Melania Trump would wear Dior for her French trip! The First Lady looked striking in the two-part skirt ensemble, which was a more modern version of the Christian Dior Bar suit.

    The sleek tailoring was refined and lent her slender frame a strong presence while the bold red hue really ensured she turned heads in an instant.

  21. Gonzo:
    My hope is that Sessions is keeping a tight lid on his investigations (as he is supposed to do), not allowing leaks and subsequent publicity to taint future indictments and court cases. These investigations should be done privately but are admittedly frustrating to those of us who would like to know what he’s doing.

    I heard Rush on Tuesday and didn’t think he sounded despondent at all. I was surprised, however, by Lou Dobbs (of whom you and I are both fans) unloading on Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday, accusing her of “filibustering” and insulting the intelligence of his audience by somewhat defending Paul Ryan’s and McConnell’s accomplishments. I would be surprised if she returned anytime soon. Lou’s feelings about the two leaders are well-known (and justified, imo) and anyone who comes on his show and doesn’t agree with his assessment is treading on dangerous ground. I thought it was somewhat uncharacteristic of Lou

  22. Sorry, accidentally posted last comment early.

    I thought it was somewhat uncharacteristic of Lou, although his feelings about those two (especially Ryan) have been consistent for a long time.

  23. Gonzo…. ignore the interloper. She can change her name and the blog, but her nastiness always identifies her. I truly think she is a very, very unhappy person inside. Don’t take her personally, just feel sadness and pity for her.

  24. Hi everyone. I need your help if you would be so kind.

    Please read this link. I need to refute the claims made by the writer. I see some outright lies here. The “no scandal” comment is an outright lie. Right off the get go was Fast and Furious.

    Is anyone here willing to make some comments with your refutation regarding this link?

    Thank you in advance.

  25. I saw something on the internet today that said that Paul Ryan was on the plane in Arizona with Loretta Lynch when Bill Clinton decided to have his private meeting with her. Has anyone else heard this before? My initial understanding was that Loretta Lynch was accompanied by her husband only.

  26. Update: Power narrative. The great President Donald J. Trump is building a power narrative and taking little President of France Macron along. Think about all the roads that led to today. The American revolution in 1776 inspires the French revolution in 1789 which begins with the attack on the infamous imperial prison The Bastille. The Bastille is brought down by French revolutionaries so every year on July 14 the French commemorate Bastille Day the way we remember 1776.

    Today is also the centennial marker for the day the United States entered “the great war” World War I. World War I was the most brutal war America has been in topping even the horror of the Civil War. World War I was really World War Part I and was continued by World War Part II. So there is President Donald J. Trump in Paris watching as for the first time ever American troops lead the Bastille Day parade.

    Narrative building by President Donald J. Trump does not end there. As he did in Warsaw (see the main article below) President Donald J. Trump is in Paris at the biggest event in France on the day that marks the anniversary of the Muslim terror attack on Nice.

    In one stunning historic moment President Donald J. Trump weaves together the historic paths America and the French people have traveled. Independence Day/Bastille Day. World War I/World War II. 9/11 Muslim Terror attacks/7-14 Nice Muslim Terror attacks. As he wove a narrative in Warsaw which echoed FDR and JFK, President Donald J. Trump wove a vast historic landscape in France today.

    And the Trump triumph does not end there. With this visit President Donald J. Trump helps little French President Emmanuel Macron grow in stature. How? Well, the invitation to President Donald J. Trump from President Macron is a direct challenge to the German leadership of Europe and to the decayed Angela Merkel.

    And still it does not end there. The fact that the French still assert their nationalist pride in the face of German government hostility to President Donald J. Trump brings to the fore the hopeless task the European Union’s attempt to end nationalism on the continent faces. Macron’s embrace of President Donald J. Trump is a slap in the face (dare we say “schlonging”) to Merkel and an assertion of leadership by the untested, untried, apprentice Macron.

    A grateful Macron loves hisself some Trump (and once again Melania does America proud):


    Sorry Big Media but President Donald J. Trump is très smart and knows how to woo other leaders without bowing to them.

    Macron could learn alot from PDT…

  28. Jamie Dimon sounds like an echo of PDT

    He sould go directly after CNN & MSNBC, NYT and WP for all the colossal time they are wasting and DEPRIVING the American people from information that actually effects their lives…every day Russia, Russia, Russia…and another person who might have been in some pre-election meeting…who the F cares? really who outside of DC and the coasts…who cares? the constant noise gives me a headache…no wonder the ratings are up at the cartoon channels….people need to escape this constant repetitive noise…reminds me of when CNN fixated on the missing airplane…they are freaking obsessive compulsive over there…

    never one word on any given day about our economy, jobs, infrastructure, etc or anything positive about our President…all attack

    yesterday I saw a report where the US admin is working with Israel & the Palestinians in conjuction with Jordan on a pipeline and issues concerning water and salinization, etc…all parties were at the televised meeting, so encouraging to see them all working together…PDT admin doing so much work to bring them together

    we’ll never hear about anything positive from “our” media…

    Gorka is doing a pretty good job of trying to put the so called “journalists” in their place…but they are so insular and their own cabal, they do not want to step outside of their denial of their stupidity…and can’t or they lose what’s left of their ratings…

    I have started tweeting & copying Kimberly G, Perino, mccain’ s daughter etc to address these issues

    It is infuriating to hear any of them go after Don Jr while Meagan McCain is sitting there & making accusations & no one mentions her father &, his part in this entrapment of PDT
    This whole thing against PDT with Mueller, Comey & Russian obsession seems more & more like a strategic tactic to cover the tracks of all the wrong doing of the dims & Hillary
    While trying to destroy PDT & his family at the same time

    “This whole thing against PDT with Mueller, Comey & Russian obsession seems more & more like a strategic tactic to cover the tracks of all the wrong doing of the dims & Hillary”

    Agreed. It’s one of the Alinsky Rules: accuse your enemies of what you yourself are guilty of. It’s particularly frustrating since almost all of the establishment of both parties seem to be uninterested in fighting it. They’re also trying to re-create their great triumph of Watergate since they have nothing else to offer.

  31. This is almost word for word what we once wrote about Hillary until she stopped fighting and became Obama III:

    https://townhall.com/columnists/evansayet/2017/07/13/he-fights-n2354580

    He Fights

    My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer:

    We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.

    This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

    I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party. I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

    The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.

    The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.

    With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

    During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming. Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”

    General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, son-of-a-bitch. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum, then Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

    Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!” That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics.

    That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis. It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.

    Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do.

    First, instead of going after “the fake media” – and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri – Trump isolated CNN. He made it personal. Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.”

    Everyone gets that it’s not just CNN – in fact, in a world where Al Sharpton and Rachel Maddow, Paul Krugman and Nicholas Kristof are people of influence and whose “reporting” is in no way significantly different than CNN’s – CNN is just a piker.

    Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. With Trump’s ability to go around them, they cannot simply stand pat. They need to respond. This leaves them with only two choices.

    They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery.

    The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve. It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.

    Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s, church.

    Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.

    This makes “going high” a non-starter for CNN. This leaves them no other option but to ratchet up the fake news, conjuring up the next “nothing burger” and devoting 24 hours a day to hysterical rants about how it’s “worse than Nixon.”

    This, obviously, is what CNN has chosen to do. The problem is that, as they become more and more hysterical, they become more and more obvious. Each new effort at even faker news than before and faker “outrage” only makes that much more clear to any objective observer that Trump is and always has been right about the fake news media.

    And, by causing their hysteria, Trump has forced them into numerous, highly embarrassing and discrediting mistakes. Thus, in their desperation, they have lowered their standards even further and run with articles so clearly fake that, even with the liberal (lower case “l”) libel laws protecting the media, they’ve had to wholly retract and erase their stories repeatedly.

    Their flailing at Trump has even seen them cross the line into criminality, with CNN using their vast corporate fortune to hunt down a private citizen for having made fun of them in an Internet meme. This threat to “dox” – release of personal information to encourage co-ideologists to visit violence upon him and his family — a political satirist was chilling in that it clearly wasn’t meant just for him. If it were, there would have been no reason for CNN to have made their “deal” with him public.

    Instead, CNN – playing by “Chicago Rules” – was sending a message to any and all: dissent will not be tolerated.

    This heavy-handed and hysterical response to a joke on the Internet has backfired on CNN, giving rise to only more righteous ridicule.

    So, to my friends on the Left – and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do. These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years.

    So, say anything you want about this president – I get it, he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights.

  32. Voter fraud? Maybe that’s why this is happening. Don’t expect Big Media to consider voter fraud as a possible explanation for why some are “unregistering” to vote:

    http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/nation-world/national/article161455238.html

    Top officials in the Democratic National Committee are worried about a sudden drop in voter registrations in Colorado, concerned that President Donald Trump’s new election commission is encouraging Democrats across the country to remove themselves from the electoral grid for fear of revealing personal information to the GOP leadership.

    Led by DNC Chairman Tom Perez, they’ve begun an effort — in conjunction with the Colorado Democratic Party — to persuade other members of the party’s rank-and-file to stay registered.

    “If you unregister, you are giving a victory to proponents of voter suppression,” Perez said in an interview with McClatchy.

    Denying the GOP a victory on this issue, he said, is the party’s new rallying cry.

    “That’s our message,” Perez said. “And we’re out there delivering that message in every way possible.”

    More than 3,000 Colorado voters have unregistered since Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity requested personal data on voters in late June, according to the Colorado Secretary of State’s office. The commission, created to investigate alleged voter fraud in states across the country, drew bipartisan backlash this month with its request, with officials in both parties declining to provide the information out of concern for voters’ privacy.

    The Colorado voters who withdrew their registration represent less than one-tenth of 1 percent of the state’s total number of registered voters, said officials with the Colorado secretary of state’s office. And Democratic officials say they haven’t seen widespread examples of voters revoking their registration in other states.

    But to Perez, the case in Colorado is an example of the Trump-created commission trying to make it more difficult to vote. He and other Democrats have accused the group of laying the groundwork for Republican-led efforts that would make voting more difficult. (Trump has said, without evidence, that three to five million men and women voted illegally in the last election. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 3 million.)

    “The commission has nothing to do with election integrity and everything to do with voter suppression,” Perez said.

    The chairman said the DNC is working closely with the Colorado Democratic Party to spread the word to voters not to unregister. It’s part of a broader effort from the DNC to offer more support to state parties: The committee last week announced a new initiative to funnel more money to them as well as hiring additional staff to offer support.

    “What we’re seeing in Colorado, we hope that doesn’t spread elsewhere,” said one DNC official. “That’s why we’re working on educating voters across the country about this. We’re not trying to incite panic, but the DNC itself is monitoring this situation and is concerned by what we’re seeing.”

    Kris Kobach, the Republican secretary of state in Kansas and vice chairman of Trump’s commission, dismissed concerns about voters withdrawing their registration.

    “It could be a number of things,” he said, according to Breitbart. “It could be, actually, people who are not qualified to vote, perhaps someone who is a felon and is disqualified that way, or someone who is not a U.S. citizen saying, ‘I’m withdrawing my voter registration because I am not able to vote.’ It could be a political stunt – people who are trying to discredit the Commission and withdrawing temporarily because they are politically active but planning to get back on the voter rolls before the election next November.”

    Notice the lie. The electoral commission requested public records not personal information. Big Media portrays this request for public information as “personal”.

    Maybe they’re “unregistering” because they are not legally entitled to vote? The DNC wants illegals to vote as has been documented.

  33. Hillary was never the person Trump is, she had us all fooled.

    It just became clearer the more desperate she became.

    And sniffing out identity theft which leads to an infinite number of crimes. The same ID’s, usually Hispanic surnames of course, being used over and over with the IRS and Social Security Adm aware of it and doing nothing (as passively approved policy) emboldened to the point of openly registering to vote (and voting!) which is a felony for which they can be deported. There has been a long tradition in some US locales of selling the identity of dead relatives, living relatives, children who died young, disabled persons who don’t work, blank birth certificates (now almost impossible due to severe laws centralizing birth and death records), and even people who sell their own identity (SS card, birth certificate, drives license, even passports) who just go get another copy doing it over and over again for the cash. Voter registration rolls are PUBLIC records. Claiming it is personal information is ridiculous. If your name, address, and age, all required to assign a person to a voter precinct, is so personal then don’t vote. It isn’t required of anyone to violate your “privacy” but rather for administrative purposes.

  35. The Russia, Russia, Russia imbroglio is rolling along. Bizarre clues, disparate factoids, dead ends, sleazy operators and the messy half-ass crew of DC apparatchiks who need a payday keep popping up. It is all quite easy to dig out. A trail of crumbs leads straight to Loretta Lynch, Podesta, Ben Rhodes, butt hurt GOP’ers acting as proxies, and the Russia haters in both the US government and the UK secret services (which is the permanent socialist class embedded element of that particular bureaucracy). PM May is on The Donald’s shit list because she was aware of their hi-jinks and now the Brits have to let it leak out in a libel case as penance. It is very cheesy especially since they all went to Cambridge. And low brow and amateurish (where is Mr Bean?) as well as money-grubbing which describes John McCain also who is in the middle of Piss-Gate which was used to get FISA warrants. McCain, old and evil and a failure, at this moment of exposure has an eye blowout. Go figure.

    Someone (not the MSM) is doing a homicide detective style whiteboard of all the connections, dirty dealings, FISA court filings, random clues, misdirection, etc and it is probably a young blogger. An Anti-Ben Rhodes so to speak. I am stuck by the obviousness and messiness of it all and how “cheaply” it was done and not covered up very well. It seems to have been done for some purpose by people who assumed they would remain in power and “systems and methods” would not be exposed. The purpose I suppose was to blackmail or ruin Trump after he lost the election. And to make sure no other “Trumps” or his voters ever stepped out of line again. Since Trump didn’t lose, this is what was in place and although not fit for purpose the best available to Dems, GOPe, globalists, hacks, the permanent government, spies, media, and general malcontents. It was a cheesy, half-ass mess but the best they had on short notice. But if you look at the general overall caliber of the Obama/Progressive/Dem administration it is about par with their other work products. Pretty much everyone who talks about Russia, Russia, Russia and Trump collusion is seen with a CNN “red box” on their head by the public. It is farce.

  36. …and BM in the “collusion delusion” as Sabastian Gorka calls it…digs in & refuses to acknowledge that Americans would rather watch cartoons than listen to anymore of this drawn out & repetitive “farce”

  37. Keep Tweeting Mr. President, We love it. 😀

    Goodbye Joe Scarborough . . . Hello, Kid Rock

    oe Scarborough is out and Kid Rock is in.

    Joe made official his departure from the Republican Party this week, following in the footsteps of other pundits such as George Will and Bret Stephens. Good riddance. Meanwhile in Michigan, Kid Rock announced he would seek the Republican nomination to challenge incumbent do-nothing Democrat Debbie Stabenow.

    Scarborough’s departure from the GOP the same week Kid Rock threw his trucker cap into the ring nicely illustrates the current political fault lines.

    The 2016 election was about who rules in America. Will it be an aloof, self-interested class of patrician mandarins who attend the same schools, have the same accents, and repeat the same noxious pieties? Or will the American people rule themselves? Those were the stakes. Those continue to be the stakes.

    Scarborough is a fitting avatar for the striving, elite careerist eager to demonstrate his moral and cultural superiority over average Americans while Kid Rock revels in redneck cool.

    The contrast between the two is striking.

    Scarborough is at home in Washington. Kid Rock lives in Detroit.

    Joe curries favor with coastal elites. Kid Rock is at home in the middle of the country. And it’s no wonder: He’s travelled the country by bus and minivan on more than 25 tours with legends like Lynyrd Skynyrd and David Allen Coe.

    Kid Rock has the long, stringy hair of ’70s rock gods while Scarborough wears a Ken doll bouffant—a requirement for male TV anchors so hackneyed that it has become a stock punchline.

    Perhaps most striking is the music. Kid Rock plays straightforward American rock and roll. Scarborough sings Britpop retreads steeped in the sort of hipster self-regard that is unbecoming in a 20-year-old student at a small liberal arts college let alone in a middle-aged man.

    But it’s Trump’s party now and Michigan turned red last November. The state that gave us muscle cars, Motown, and groundbreaking rockers like the MC5 and Iggy Pop is ready to roar. While Washington obsesses on Russia and idolizes Scarborough (his low rated show is must-see TV in New York and D.C.) Detroit is focused on jobs, trade, and national security. And if he really runs, Republicans would likely nominate native son Kid Rock as their candidate for Senate. Debbie Stabenow might want to update her résumé. (“Chuck Schumer’s sock puppet seeks work. Relevant experience includes carrying water and speaking only when spoken to.”)

    If his initial reception is any guide, the Powers-That-Be will take Kid Rock literally but not seriously. They did the same thing with Donald Trump. Voters got it; the political pros didn’t. And Michigan might very well see the same result.

    If his initial reception is any guide, the Powers-That-Be will take Kid Rock literally but not seriously. They did the same thing with Donald Trump. Voters got it; the political pros didn’t. And Michigan might very well see the same result.

    This says something about Michigan but more about America. For decades California has been this country’s bellwether. Where California led, the nation followed. That’s one of the reasons Trump won. The Golden State, once the incarnation of the American Dream, is collapsing. The state’s defenders—there are a few—will say, “Hey, California is the world’s sixth-largest economy!” But behind that bit of boosterism lies illegal immigration, legal drugs, out-of-control state spending, massive unfunded pension liabilities resulting from years of the legislature paying off the public sector unions, crumbling infrastructure, and a gap between rich and poor that resembles nothing so much as the plantation states of Central America whose example California is eagerly following—a state divided between the monied gentry and the people who serve them.

    California is now a vision of a potential American dystopian future. Michigan has tasted that future in Detroit and may have had enough. The state has a Republican governor but hasn’t had a Republican Senator since Spencer Abraham lost his re-election bid in 2000. Kid Rock could break that drought.

    When Michigan native Mitt Romney (also the owner of a Ken doll bouffant) was the candidate, Republicans didn’t stand a chance. His home state remained the cornerstone of the Democrats vaunted “blue wall” that gave them a lock on the electoral college. Before Trump, no Republican presidential candidate had won the state in nearly 30 years. Romney lost it by nine points to Barack Obama.

    Kid Rock supported both Romney and Trump and identifies himself with the more libertarian wing of the party. But being from Detroit and having a long-term business relationship with Chevrolet, one would probably be safe to assume that his libertarianism probably extends to free speech and skepticism of foreign military misadventures rather than to the free trade absolutism and open borders of think-tank libertarians. In other words, the common sense American libertarianism that says, “you mind your business and I’ll mind mine.”

    When they read the lyrics to some of Kid Rock’s early songs the pearl-clutchers will bemoan the lost virtue of the Republican Party (“Oh, the language!“), but voters just want someone who represents their interests and gets the job done. Less talk, more action. The return of rough around the edges citizen-politicians may offend the delicate sensibilities of our ruling class, but it’s what America’s Founders wanted and what the times demand.

    The “decadent, lazy, spoiled” Americans who aren’t good enough for Bill Kristol and who ex-conservative Bret Stephens wants to deport and replace with cheap foreign imports, the small towns that National Review’s Kevin Williamson says deserve to die are fighting for their lives. They want their country back. And they have more in common with Kid Rock than with the Republican elites who have turned their backs on flyover America.

    Kid Rock (real name: Robert James Ritchie) made it big in the early ’00s with a blue collar blend of hip hop and heavy metal. He made it bigger when he started playing a pop-friendly form of Southern rock that embraced the good, the bad, and the ugly in middle America in a big bear hug. And that probably gives ruling class Republicans the vapors. (“Not a true conservative!” “If this is the Republican Party, I’m out!” “Good heavens, we’re slouching towards Gomorrah.”)

    Where the ruling class self-consciously affects the outward forms of those to the manor born, Kid Rock embraces white trash chic. He’ll be mocked for wearing wife-beater t-shirts, thick gold chains, and drinking PBR. You can bet he’s not “serious enough” for the dandies at National Review or The Weekly Standard. George Will would probably threaten to leave the Republican Party if Kid Rock were nominated, but you can only quit once. And don’t tell David French or he’ll have to take a weekend off to consider whether he should move to Michigan and run as an independent to save the unwashed masses from the towns that deserve to die from themselves.

    On his Facebook Page, Kid Rock told his nearly 6 million fans that Stabenow “is better at playing politics than I am so I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bullshit!”

    What Republican handwringers ominously call populist-nationalism (scare quotes optional) is just self-government and patriotism by another name. Kid Rock, like Donald Trump, is an interloper who threatens to upset the established pecking order. The old guard won’t like it. They never do. But resistance is futile. Rather than representing a degraded future, perhaps Kid Rock represents a return of upstart citizen legislators who are not beholden to institutional power structures but to the people alone.

    Take it from Kid Rock: It’s time to stop worrying and learn to love the American Bad Ass.

  39. I am so sick and tired of hearing the media and also even some Trump pundits say that they cannot cover his accomplishments because “he stepped over his story with his tweets”

    frankly there have been time I have also felt that way

    BUT…

    the media and these ‘pundits’ use this as a distraction to not report on his accomplishments…if he didn’t tweet that day, they would just revert back to Russia

    the media and pundits have to learn how to cover the President of the USA & his accomplishments and chew gum at the same time…

    we are not buying the excuses anymore…do not cover this President at your own risk…the people are listening…and watching…we know your game…
