Our Revolution
Forbes, by Michael Ledeen

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 1/5/2017 10:19:45 AM

The global revolution started with our victory in the Cold War, as the Soviet Union passed away with surprisingly little violence. (Snip) n other words, the United States, despite becoming the world’s lone superpower, deliberately weakened its military strength, and attempted to negotiate friendly relations with its former archenemy and the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism. Obama later did all these things again and called them “new.” I think it’s fair to say that the global templates were inevitably going to shift after the fall of the Soviet Empire, but the United States’ decision to withdraw from crucial areas of the world

Comments:
He says Trump has appointed national security people who are hawks on Iran -- Mattis, Flynn, Pompeo, Kelly. We might finally take on the biggest sponsor of terrorism and our worst enemy.

"America can resume its rightful role as the world’s premier revolutionary nation."

American foreign policy has never been based on spreading "Americanism" around the world. This is classic "looking for trouble" globally - and to what end? A continuing series of Iraq/Afghanistan debacles? Who here is willing to take on this worldwide mission at the investment of a son or daughter, not to mention public funds, whether tax or borrowed revenues?

We have whizzed away trillions, not to mention spent thousands of American lives on this very "democratic nation building" nonsense. While the hawks are projecting righteous American power beyond our borders, we have a massive, equally threatening problem AT OUR BORDERS.

Gaslighting and the
Left’s War on Reality
Townhall, by Timothy Daughtry    Original Article

Donald Trump’s victory over one of the most powerful political machines in American history has given mainstream America the opportunity to turn America onto a sensible course. The success or failure of that turnaround, however, depends largely on the ability of mainstream Americans to see through the left’s longstanding use of a vile political tactic known as gaslighting. The word gaslighting has been popularized in psychology to describe a form of mental and emotional abuse in which a domineering person denies and contradicts the memories and perceptions of an intended victim until the victim begins to doubt his or her perception

Court Strikes Down Transgender Mandate,

While family and friends were counting down to the new year, I was watching a different kind of countdown—whether doctors and health care providers would be forced to violate their medical judgment and provide procedures, including gender transition services and abortions, under a new government mandate. The mandate is a 362-page regulation that claims to interpret part of the Affordable Care Act. It was issued in May 2016, and major portions of this mandate would have kicked in on Jan. 1. Becket Law had asked a Texas court for an order protecting health care providers. It was less than nine hours to

Medical Correctness
The New Criterion, by Anthony Daniels    Original Article

In Russia in 1839, Custine wrote that Tsar Nicholas I was both eagle and insect: eagle because he soared over society surveying it with a sharp raptor’s eye from above, and insect because he bored himself into every tiny crack and crevice of society from below. Nothing was either too large or too small for his attention; and sometimes one feels that political correctness is rather like that. For the politically correct, nothing is too large or too small to escape their puritanical attention. As a consequence, we suspect that we are living an authoritarian prelude to a totalitarian future.

For reasons that remain inexplicable to me, I somehow wound up on the mailing list of a wacko left-wing organization called the Alliance for Justice. (Snip) No, the AFJ is to be commended not on account of what it wants to do — what they propose is just the usual rancid menu of hysterical, prosperity-and freedom-blighting left-wing nostrums — but rather the celerity with which they recommend action. "We need to be ready to fight the moment Trump takes office." That´s good advice. But on the Goose/Gander principle, it´s good advice for the impending Trump administration, too.

How the Collapse of the

25 years ago George Bush Sr. was still in office, and so was Saddam Hussein. (Snip) The textbook date of the end of the USSR is December 26, 1991, but for us, Soviet citizens, the dissolution began a few months earlier and happened in stages. Very few people feared or believed the Communists any longer, ridiculing their institutions and their lying media. A typical political joke at the time was about a man who always complained that Communists had run out of everything - food, toilet paper, consumer goods, and so on. So the KGB brought him to their office and

Man of the Year: Chief Trump
Strategist Stephen K. Bannon

TIME magazine named Donald Trump “Person of the Year” for 2016, and we could have done the same. But this would have been to over-simplify a victory that millions of Americans believe has brought this nation back from the brink of destruction, and has done so against what seemed impossible odds. (Snip) A former naval officer, investment banker, movie producer, documentary filmmaker, and publisher of the online news giant Breitbart.com, Bannon was a kindred spirit to Trump and also a complementary one. “I come from a blue-collar, Irish Catholic, pro-Kennedy, pro-union family of Democrats,” Bannon said in a Bloomberg Businessweek

Can we talk about that
“My Pillow” flop for a moment?

If you watch TV at all, the odds are good that you’ve seen one of those annoying commercials by the guy who talks about the incredible scientific advancement he made in “sleep science” by developing ‘My Pillow.’ I know I can almost recite the words to one of the ads by heart. I’ll confess that I found it puzzling that this guy (Michael J. Lindell) was able to afford to keep running so many of these ads for what looked, at least to me, like an obvious scam. (One of my neighbors actually bought one last winter and told me

A group of more than 1,100 law school professors from across the country is sending a letter to Congress on Tuesday urging the Senate to reject the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) for attorney general. The letter, signed by professors from 170 law schools in 48 states, is also scheduled to run as a full-page newspaper ad aimed at members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will be holding confirmation hearings for Sessions on Jan. 10-11. “We are convinced that Jeff Sessions will not fairly enforce our nation’s laws and promote justice and equality in the United States,” states the letter,

Megyn Kelly is leaving Fox News. The popular host of The Kelly File, who many saw as the future of the network, has taken a job with NBC.

Megyn Kelly is leaving Fox News after 12 years to take a multifaceted role at NBC News. Just minutes after she made the announcement Tuesday, speculation began over who would take her 9 p.m. slot on the network. (Photo) According to what insiders at Fox News told Gabriel Sherman at New York Magazine, “the consensus seems to be that the Murdochs will choose a woman” to replace Kelly. “The leading internal contenders include Trish Regan, Shannon Bream, Sandra Smith, and Martha MacCallum. Two sources said Kimberly Guilfoyle is lobbying for the job,” Sherman said the insiders told him. Trish Regan

President Barack Obama celebrated the social changes made in the military during his administration by allowing gays to serve openly in the Armed Forces and opening combat roles to women. “Joe Biden and I know that women are as least as strong as men,” he said. “We’re stronger for it.” During his speech, Obama called the American armed forces the greatest fighting force in the world and celebrated its new found committment to diversity.

NBCUniversal will spend millions of dollars each year for the next few in the hopes that Megyn Kelly can succeed in areas in which she’s never been tested: daytime talk and Sunday newsmagazines. (Snip)And yet, Kelly’s current halo does not necessarily mean she can also triumph over splintered broadcast-TV audiences and tired formats. Those are hurdles she and NBC will have to leap over in the months to come. NBC said it intends to place Kelly in a new Monday-through-Friday daytime hour set to launch sometime over the coming year. To accomplish that feat, NBC would have to either take time from

Bracing for an adversarial relationship with President-elect Donald Trump, the California Legislature has selected former U.S. Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. to serve as outside counsel to advise the state’s legal strategy against the incoming administration. The unusual arrangement will give Holder, leading a team of attorneys from the firm Covington & Burling, a broad portfolio covering potential conflicts between California and the federal government. “He will be our lead litigator, and he will have a legal team of expert lawyers on the issues of climate change, women and civil rights, the environment, immigration, voting rights — to name just
