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.

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.

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,

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.

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.

Vatican ex-doctrine chief
pens manifesto amid pope criticism
A P, by Nicole Winfield    Original Article

The Vatican´s former doctrine chief has penned a "manifesto of faith" to remind Catholics of basic tenets of belief amid what he says is "growing confusion" in the church today. Cardinal Gerhard Mueller didn´t name Pope Francis in his four-page manifesto, released late Friday. But the document was nevertheless a clear manifestation of conservative criticism of Francis´ emphasis on mercy and accompaniment versus a focus on repeating Catholic morals and doctrine during the previous two papacies. Mueller wrote that a pastor´s failure to teach Catholic truths was the greatest deception - "It is the fraud of the anti-Christ."

Former U.S. cardinal Theodore McCarrick, 88, will learn his fate next week when Pope Francis is expected to decide whether he should be kicked out of the priesthood for decades of clerical sex abuse, according to Reuters citing unnamed Vatican sources. Last July, McCarrick was stripped of his title of cardinal over allegations that he sexually abused a 16-year-old boy in a church confessional. He was the first high-ranking Catholic prelate to be stripped of the title in 100 years. Allegations against McCarrick, who is currently living out his life in prayer in a friary in Kansas, go back decades.

Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah is putting his political muscle to work for Republican colleagues on Capitol Hill, launching a new vehicle for high-dollar fundraising and planning to headline events around the country in the months ahead. Romney, the GOP presidential nominee in 2012 and among the party’s most prolific fundraisers, has formed “Team Mitt,” a joint fundraising committee with the National Republican Senatorial Committee. This weekend, the senator is traveling to Florida to mingle with Republican donors attending an annual NRSC finance retreat, the first of several trips planned to help protect the party’s Senate majority in 2020.

There is a lesson from scandal of moonwalking Gov. Ralph Northam (D-Va.) being photographed in either in a KKK hood and sheet or blackface in his medical school yearbook. In 2017 Northam decisively defeated Ed Gillespie for governor 54 to 45. (As an aside, Bill Kristol backed Northam.) In that race, the Democrats played the race card for all it was worth, while Gillespie was as hapless as a deer in the headlights. This should not be a surprise. Democrats do what Democrats do -- play to win at any cost.

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,”

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.

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City.

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.

Washington — Millions of Americans are waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary. Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed. Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn´t amount to a provable crime.

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department
