Progressives Bearing Gifts
American Greatness, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 2/11/2019 4:34:20 AM

Donald Trump in 2016 did not only run against the planted rumors of the fake Steele dossier, 90 percent negative media coverage, his own boisterous past, and the “Access Hollywood” tape. He also was campaigning against Hillary Clinton—and the nation’s quarter-century weariness with the Clinton scandals, crimes, money-grubbing, and hypocrisies. For a quarter of the country, independents especially, a vote for Trump was not a referendum on a Democrat or Republican, or even love or hate for Donald Trump, but rather reflected a “Never Hillary” desire to be done with the very name Clinton.

Sorry about a double post...

FTA: [T]he Democrats have largely done that to themselves. Policy-wise the 2020 choice will be between Trump’s mostly doctrinaire conservatism, spiced with populist trade and immigration agendas, and what is a now a new Democrat orthodoxy of Bernie Sanders’ adolescent socialism and incoherent Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Neverland something or other...

Pray over the next years VDH´s critical thinking and cogent analysis will help Americans save ourselves from each other.

Whenever Dr. Hanson writes it should’ve a must read. He nails it every time.

He notes at the end that Trump has been quiet lately. I noticed that as well. The point is the rats are coming out of the woodwork and telling the world about who the really are. Trump doesn’t have to say a word as the left is doing all the talking for him.

Let them implode. They will leave behind a massive bunker of ammunition to be used against them in 2020.

The Republicans are wasting their time attempting to negotiate with the leftist and liberal Democrats on effective borderline security or the effective enforcement of the immigration laws.

The Democrats, with facilitation from some Chamber of Commerce cheap labor Republicans, have liberalized the immigration laws, and enforcement protocols by inserting “catch and release” rules that require that most illegal aliens caught unlawfully crossing the borderline must be released into the USA to await an immigration court hearing that due to massive immigration court backlogs cannot be scheduled for about four years, during which time the illegal aliens have “free run” of the USA. Then when a hearing is scheduled over 80% of the illegal aliens fail to appear and instead abscond and hide out to await amnesty. No doubt many of those illegal aliens are foreign criminals who would be inadmissible to the USA under any conditions if the immigration laws were being enforced.

The reason the Democrats will not support the effective enforcement of the borderline or the immigration laws is that they consider the 22 million person illegal alien population now thought to be in the USA, that consists of mostly poor, uneducated, and socialist minded people from undeveloped and underdeveloped countries to be natural future socialist oriented Democrat voters after they are eventually granted amnesty and are given US voting rights. By taking the political position to use millions of illegal aliens to effect a permanent change the national voter demographics to their favor, the Democrats are hurting the country bigtime, and are encouraging a lot more mass uncontrolled illegal immigration.

#4: Your last paragraph cannot be denied.

PDJT should repeat that message as the wall is being built -- with or without a national emergency -- then at rallies and in ads throughout the 2020 race.

Never interrupt your enemy when they are destroying demselves.
That would be rude.

A Court Case in Iowa Shows
the Reality of Religious Discrimination

National Review, by David French    Original Article

If you get the lion’s share of your news from America’s prestige media outlets, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the principal religious-freedom issue in America is whether a few Christian business owners can discriminate against their gay customers. Whether the controversy is a media-created fiction (think of Indiana’s Memories Pizza — a store that never denied anyone service) or an actual court case, like Masterpiece Cakeshop, the narrative is the same. The battle over “religious liberty” — yes, the scare quotes are often all too real — is the battle over the right

Even President Trump’s supporters do not fully realize the job he has done. As I have written in the past, during the course of a wonderful rabbinic career that has given me so much personal satisfaction and fulfillment and that hopefully has touched the lives of my flocks, I once endured the Twilight Zone interlude of being rabbi of one of the worst Nightmare Congregations in America. (Two of my dearest friends, both Christian pastors, have enlightened me that the experience was not unique, and both pointed me to an extraordinary book, Clergy Killers,

President Trump on Monday tweeted a message in Persian slamming Iran’s leadership on the 40th anniversary of the Iranian revolution. “40 years of corruption. 40 years of repression. 40 years of terror. The regime in Iran has produced only #40YearsofFailure. The long-suffering Iranian people deserve a much brighter future,” reads the tweet, which the president also sent out in English

Cutting the cord: A guide
to watching your TV shows without cable
Cleveland Plain Dealer, by Joey Morona    Original Article

Had it with the rising costs, hidden fees, contracts, customer service issues, and the nickel and dime-ing of cable TV? You´re not alone. According to a report in Variety, more than 33 million people have cut the cord on traditional pay TV. This year, that number is expected to grow to more than 39 million. Many of these cord-cutters are now relying on internet-based services like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu as well as live TV providers that mimic what you´d get with a typical cable subscription

In a move that echoes national #metoo headlines, former City Commissioner Nancy Oakley was strongly censured and reprimanded by her former colleagues for violating state ethics rules by groping and licking the face of a former city manager. In issuing the reprimand, the City Commission Wednesday night also accepted Oakley’s resignation submitted to the city the previous day.

Doxxed Covington Catholic

Strangers identified a Covington Catholic senior´s dream and mobilized to dismantle it. Michael Hodge had applied to Cincinnati State, drawn to the school´s culinary arts program. A mob, angered by videos showing Hodge´s classmates chanting around a group of Native Americans on the National Mall, found a scapegoat in Hodge. "It was crazy to see all the people, you know, so quick to judge," Hodge, 18, told the USA TODAY Network. Hodge was 500 miles away when his classmates joined the March for Life event and afterward encountered Native Americans and a reported hate group.

It has been two and a half weeks since Jussie Smollett reported that he was the victim of a hate crime, and in that time, his story has fallen apart completely. (snip) the home of the two "persons of interests" in the widely circulated community alert was raided by Chicago police. In that raid, they seized a list of items including multiple containers of bleach, a "red hat," an Empire script, a Mossberg rifle, and two computers. The home is occupied by the two men, and at least one is an extra on Jussie Smollett´s show, Empire.

Friday on KABC radio in Los Angeles, conservative commentator Ann Coulter reacted to President Donald Trump saying she was “off the reservation,” during his press conference this morning. Explaining that building the border wall was Trump’s mandate, Coulter said, “It was one thing, the promise he made every single day at every single speech.” She added, “So forget the fact that he’s digging his own grave. This is just — look the only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.” Coulter did praise the president regarding the courts by saying, “In defense of Trump supporters and those who fell for his

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

How Dumb is Ocasio-Cortez?

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld launched a presidential exploratory committee in New Hampshire Friday, making him the first Republican officially eying a longshot GOP primary challenge to President Donald Trump. “I’m here because I think our country is in grave peril,” Weld said at an announcement at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast in New Hampshire, a frequent stop for presidential candidates. “I cannot sit quietly on the sidelines any longer.” "We cannot sit passively as our precious democracy slips quietly into darkness," he said. Weld, who served as governor in the Bay State from 1991 to 1997, was the Libertarian Party
