McMaster and the Challenge
of Sharia Supremacism

National Review, by Andrew C. McCarthy

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 8/12/2017 1:53:52 PM

Lieutenant General H. R. McMaster is a great American patriot. I have not had the privilege of meeting him. Friends I trust who know him well, however, bear witness to his unsurpassed valor in the defense of our nation, to which attest silver and bronze stars, among his array of commendations. (Snip) An Islamist is a Muslim committed to the imposition of sharia. There may be “moderate Islamists” in Anbar Province; there are none in America. I have great respect for General McMaster, but I’m just as worried about whether he gets that, as he apparently is worried about whether

Comments:
This is a very informative and nuanced article, and I had to snip to way down in it to get to McCarthy´s objections to McMaster, which are really the subject of the piece. I´m not faulting him for it; I´m glad of all the information.

A fair amount of this article is not nuanced. It is just another anti-Trump screed disguised unsuccessfully as intro/filler for the article he should have written.

Contrary to McCarthy’s very retro NR opinion, President Trump is not a dupe. He is simply different from the GOPe types McCarthy is used to. He is not likely to be lead down the primrose path by anyone. Those who have a core have that advantage.

I find McCarthy´s writings informative but tiresome and he is not succinct. Until you get to the end of this missive you then find out his true feelings about Trump. Way too many words to try to convince readers that Islam isn´t so bad.

It is sad that a person as intelligent and articulate as Andy McCarthy still feels the need to lard his writings with anti-Trump snark. I guess he just wants to keep is job at the National Review, and keep getting invited to their tony cocktail parties and cruises.

So tired of hearing Trump is not "nuanced," that Trump has to learn on the job blah, blah, blah. Trump recently said, in essence, that not everyone at Charlottesvile was a White Supremacist, or Neo Nazi, some were just there to protest the dismantling of statue of Robert E. Lee. Is this not "nuanced" thinking? Trump is the only Republican in recent memory to have the guts to talk about illegal immigration. Thus, he makes simple what is obvious, yet nuanced for today´s GOPe, which insists on lumping legal and illegal immigration as all good for USA. How many times have we been lectured by these types, "Immigration is good for USA." But Trump presented USA with question, "Is so much illegal immigration good for us?" The "Trump-must-be-schooled" gang is so tiresome.

The Real Race War

The tragedy in Charlottesville could have been an occasion to stop and consider how the tolerance for politically correct violence and politically correct hatred is leading the nation towards civil war. Instead the media and the political left have turned this incident into the biggest fake news story of the summer, transforming its real lessons into a morality play that justifies war against the political right, and against white people generally. The organizers of the “Unite the Right” demonstration in Charlottesville were repellent racists. But they came to defend a historic monument honoring a complex man and cause, and not to

Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle. 1,477 people live in this little corner of Quebec with its apple orchards, elderberry fields and small wineries. But now 400 migrants can cross the border in a single day. On the other side of the border is New York. There the language is English. In Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, the language of choice is French. But these days you’re a more likely to hear Arabic, Urdu or Haitian French being spoken here as Roxham Road fills with clots of migrants scampering out of America. They’re not the leftist American celebs who threaten to leave for Canada if their side doesn’t win the election.

Derek Harvey was a man who saw things coming. He had warned of Al Qaeda when most chose to ignore it. He had seen the Sunni insurgency rising when most chose to deny it. The former Army colonel had made his reputation by learning the lay of the land. In Iraq that meant sleeping on mud floors and digging into documents to figure out where the threat was coming from. It was hard to imagine anyone better qualified to serve as President Trump’s top Middle East adviser at the National Security Council than a man who had been on the

An NSC Staffer Is Forced Out
Over a Controversial Memo

A top official of the National Security Council was fired last month after arguing in a memo that President Trump is under sustained attack from subversive forces both within and outside the government who are deploying Maoist tactics to defeat President Trump’s nationalist agenda. His dismissal marks the latest victory by National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster in the ongoing war within Trump’s White House between those who believe that the president is under threat from dark forces plotting to undermine him, and those like McMaster who dismiss this as conspiratorial thinking.

General John Kelly may be trying to institute military-style discipline in the West Wing, but that hasn’t put a stop to the civil war happening over President Donald Trump’s National Security Council. If anything, the dawning of the Kelly era may have accelerated that war. The national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, has removed three NSC aides loyal to Trump aide Steve Bannon in the last three weeks. Bannon allies inside and outside the administration have fired back, starting rumors that McMaster is on his way out the door and documenting the Army general’s deviations from President Trump.

The Trump Budget

Remember President Trump´s "terrible" budget cuts? "Promises Little but Pain," warned The New York Times. "Harsh and shortsighted," cried The Washington Post. Then Congress passed a budget. President Trump signed it. Do you notice the "pain"? I follow the news closely, but until I researched this column, I didn´t know that Congress actually raised spending on the very agencies Trump wanted to cut. Trump called for a $4.7 billion dollar cut to the Agriculture Department. Congress increased the department´s appropriation by $12.8 billion. He called for a $15 billion cut to Health and Human Services. Congress instead gave them $2.8 billion more. Trump wanted a $6.2 billion

Don´t worry, it´ll be mainstream in a few years. Like the rest of the Green Party´s positions that trickled down to the moderate left and then the Democrats. Still in this time when the Democrats temporarily bewail treason, it´s nice to remember the origin of fellow travelers, useful idiots and collabotators. And that´s there still no left-wing regime too awful for the left to defend. Just ask Noam Chomsky. Or Jill Stein. Stein referred to the negative characterizations of the brutal Communist regime in North Korea as a way to ‘demonize’ them so the U.S. can implement a regime change. “The demonization of

Posted By: Judy W.- 8/1/2017 7:57:56     Post Reply
A beneficial side effect of the horrible Charlie Gard case is that it is the kind of story that forces anyone who wishes to talk about it to define himself, whether openly or implicitly, on certain fundamental issues: self-ownership vs. socialism, the private family vs. state, and the principled defense of individual liberty vs. progressive pragmatism. One of the more predictable and amusing aspects of this moment of self-revelation is the hatred and invective which the defenders of socialism, state, and pragmatism -- which in this case means state ownership and disposal of the individual human being -- spew at those

Minnesota Is Pushing Gender

It would seem to be common sense that schoolchildren fresh off of learning the alphabet should not have to learn the alphabet soup of growing gender pronouns sprung from the laboratories of college campuses. But that is exactly what is happening in Minnesota. On Wednesday, the Minnesota Department of Education advisory council voted to implement an LGBT “toolkit” for public and charter schools in the state. Nor are these guidelines just intended for older students. Instead, they were created for children as young as those entering kindergarten. The toolkit says the language surrounding gender identity issues is “evolving” and that

Conservative healthcare policy wonk Avik Roy, a strong supporter of the imperiled Senate healthcare bill, wrote an eye-opening analysis over the weekend. He examined and applied leaked data in order to demonstrate how the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office would score any GOP Obamacare replacement bill as "denying" coverage to at least 16 million Americans. That´s due to CBO´s fanatical belief in the power of the existing law´s individual mandate tax, an article of faith to which they´ve clung, despite hard contradictory evidence. For the first time, Roy is able to reveal exactly how heavily -- and dubiously -- CBO leans

Attorney General Jeff Sessions wants to steal from you. Oh, he doesn’t call it that. He calls it “civil forfeiture.” But what it is, is theft by law enforcement. Sessions should be ashamed. If I were president, he’d be fired. Under “civil forfeiture,” law enforcement can take property from people under the legal fiction that the property itself is guilty of a crime. (“Legal fiction” sounds better than “lie,” but in this case the two terms are near synonyms.) It was originally sold as a tool for going after the assets of drug kingpins, but nowadays it seems to be used against

Fox News´s Kat Timpf slammed President Trump on Tuesday for his "disgusting" press conference in which he again blamed "both sides" for the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend, stepping back from his direct condemnation of white supremacist groups a day earlier.

President Trump should have left well enough alone. His Monday denunciation of costumed sheet-wearers and Nazi wanna-bes could have cleared the way for Americans of all stripes to focus their outrage on things that matter more than presidential words. That would be the violence that is infecting our politics and the frightening acceptance of it as the new normal. But Trump’s defiance yesterday is sure to keep the media pot boiling over his rhetoric instead of an ominous reality. Namely, that real protestors don’t carry baseball bats, crowbars and mace. Yet Saturday’s bloody clash in Charlottesville showed that many on

A crowd of ignorant protesters pulled down a bronze Confederate statue that stood before a county government building in Durham, North Carolina — the angry national backlash to the Charlottesville brouhaha over the Robert E. Lee monument. This is not how civil societies operate. And yet this is what the left has brought, and now cheers. What’s next — burning books with offensive content? Burning books written by those who used to own slaves? At the very least, museums will have to go. The problem with revising history based on a standard of “feeling offensive” — as this anti-Confederate craze is rooted — is that someone,

Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was "blame on both sides" for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend. Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based "public relations firm specializing in innovative events" to serve as agitators in counterprotests. The ad was posted by a company called "Crowds on Demand" and offered $25 per hour to "actors and photographers"
