The View of the Blinkered
American Greatness, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 1/3/2018 9:14:30 AM

Sites like Vox, the Daily Beast, and the Weekly Standard have long praised the dossiers of Robert Mueller’s legal investigative team. The essays prove mostly the same. They often employ the same superlative nomenclature: “all-stars,” “dream-team,” “army,” and “professionals.” The hagiographies list the legal CVs of various lawyers and investigators now employed (usually on loan either from the FBI, Obama or Trump Justice Departments, or prestigious East Coast firms). The reviews often hint that such “firepower” may mean a one-sided legal bloodbath ahead. The mere names spell “very, very bad news” for the White House. Yet the Mueller legal team’s dossiers also

VDH´s life as a historian, a public intellectual, and a raisin-grape farmer in a California area inundated with illegal aliens has prepared him well to understand just what is going on and to explain it eloquently.

The superlatives used to describe Herr Mueller´s dream team could have been used on Gestapo agents back in the 1930s.

Mueller just "knows" that Democrats are much smarter than Republicans. That´s why all of his team of lawyers are Democrats.

FTA: “What Trump critics seem to resent most about Trump is not his politics, agenda, or record, but his culture.”

Trump’s culture is our culture, free individuals shaping their own lives despite snobby elites and eternally wrong experts. Truth, justice and the American way. (Cue original Superman.)

It’s crude and bawdy at times, but guaranteed to offend the aristocracy’s garden party manners just as much today as it did in 1776. The nobility is innately suspicious that their “success” is based upon nothing but the luck of who their parents happen to be, the schools they attended, and who they know that can count as assets. Their culture is based on wealth, influence and power that is not self-generated, therefore they must denigrate and distance themselves from those that create assets on their own. Independence is very threatening to those who are dependent.

They live in a house of cards built on sand. Hurricane Donald has stalled over D.C. and its gale force winds threatens the livelihood of Deep State Unipartitarians and Global Communists. A champion as stepped forward to lead the people they have oppressed, something that was never supposed to happen. A delicious irony will be the one-time-only fulfillment of their mendacious slogan, “The people united will never be defeated.”

MAGA New Year!

Great article. Must read.

What I believe the Left and the NeverTrumpers don´t like is what Trump wants to do, which is to actually fix things. Not just talk about it, create a blue-ribbon committee to discuss it(and be a place for your friends to find a nice six-figure paycheck), or discuss how "we´re making progress".

No, he wants things to work properly, not have a bloated government, doing little or nothing.
And, that to me is part of the winning formula, we will have less government, which means less taxes needed, but have it become more productive, more efficient and less redundant.

Robert Mueller’s Beltway Cover-Up
Tablet Magazine, by Lee Smith    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 3/13/2018 9:46:16     Post Reply
News that special counselor Robert Mueller has turned his attention to Erik Prince’s January 11, 2017 meeting in the Seychelles with a Russian banker, a Lebanese-American political fixer, and officials from the United Arab Emirates, helps clarify the nature of Mueller’s work. It’s not an investigation that the former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is leading—rather, it’s a cover-up. After all, Mueller took his job not at the behest of the man who by all accounts he is likely to professionally and personally disdain, Donald Trump, but of the blue-chip Beltway elite of which he is a charter member.

Barack Obama wasn´t kidding when he warned his successor that North Korea is the biggest national security threat the U.S. faces. "No good options" has been the mantra of the deep thinkers, as if we have no choice but to let the Kim dynasty threaten the world with nuclear war from now on. But Donald Trump has never been bound by conventional thinking and brings a healthy skepticism to the pronouncements of the experts who have failed for the past three decades. Here is a short list of what he is doing differently, and why he might even succeed. First of all,

on Welfare Reform
Daily Signal, by Kay Coles James    Original Article

Washington is in a unique position to solve America’s welfare crisis for a very simple reason: Washington created it. The policy and programs it established a half-century ago have depleted people, obstructed their purpose, and extinguished their extraordinary possibilities. The evidence of this failure is all around us. Being black and the daughter of a former welfare recipient, I know firsthand the unintended harm welfare has caused. That’s why much of what I am about to share relates to the African-American experience. But this isn’t a problem specific to us. When it comes to welfare, the black community is merely America’s “canary

The left (I refuse to call regressives "progressives") is finding it hard to deal with a reality in which the markets are up, unemployment is down, household income is rising, ISIS is being crushed, and Kim Jong-un is being lassoed. Former NYT editor Jill Abramson probably reflects the paper´s Upper West Side of Manhattan when she reveals she carries as an amulet (against the reality of a Trump presidency) – a little Obama doll in her purse – to comfort herself. "It´s easy to look at what´s happening in Washington, DC, and despair. That´s why I carry a little plastic Obama

Some recent inspector general reports from within various federal agencies show that the Trump administration is attempting to weed out abuse, fraud, and waste in government programs. Early in his tenure as secretary of the Department of the Interior (DOI), Ryan Zinke asked for a briefing on DOI grant programs and found to his dismay that not a single person could tell him how much DOI disbursed in grants every year or what projects it had funded or was committed to funding. Saying he feared that the grant program was open to fraud and abuse, Zinke order DOI to review its

About twenty years ago, when Tony Blair was in the midst of "reforming" - ie, wrecking - the House of Lords, I suggested in The Sunday Telegraph that he replace it with the House of Gays, since, as a small, unrepresentative elite exercising power and influence out of all proportion to their actual numbers, gays were now the contemporary equivalent of the old peerage.

It´s hard for many of us always to know who our friends really are. The president of the United States appears to have more difficulty with this than most (cf. Paul Manafort). He also may be too quick to dismiss or turn on those who may ultimately be his truest friends. A case in point, although it is not yet certain, seems to be Jeff Sessions, who has been in Donald Trump´s crosshairs since the attorney general recused himself from the Russia investigation. Sessions made news this week by authorizing the Department of Justice to sue the state of California for preempting

Not long ago I waited for a flight to board. The plane took off 45 minutes late. There were only two attendants to accommodate 11 passengers who had requested wheelchair assistance. Such growing efforts to ensure that the physically challenged can easily fly are certainly welcome. But when our plane landed—late and in danger of causing many passengers to miss their connecting flights—most of the 11 wheelchair-bound passengers left their seats unassisted and hurried out. It was almost as if newfound concerns about making connections had somehow improved their health during the flight. Two passengers had boarded with two dogs each. No

Measles Vaccination Saves You

Here’s another reason to get vaccinated against measles – researchers have found the measles virus makes kids’ immune systems “forget” most of what they have learned, leaving children vulnerable to other diseases for as long as three years. The findings, published in the journal Science, help explain why deaths and illnesses from a range of diseases plummet in countries after they introduce measles vaccine campaigns. "Our findings suggest that measles vaccines have benefits that extend beyond just protecting against measles itself," said Michael Mina, a medical student at Emory University who worked on the study while doing postdoctoral research at

PARKLAND, FLORIDA -- On the afternoon of February 14, 2018, Kyle Kashuv found himself in the midst of a waking nightmare, huddled in a classroom closet for two harrowing hours, attempting to console and reassure terrified fellow students. Kashuv is just as much a Parkland survivor as now-familiar names like David Hogg and Cameron Kasky, yet his views have only garnered limited attention. I ask him why he thinks that´s the case. "I don´t know," he says, hesitantly. "Maybe because I don´t use inflammatory language. I speak calmly and logically without much emotion. I don´t necessarily make the very best headline."

We’re starting to hear more about secession. Not the perennial post-election calls of losing parties to secede from a nation controlled by the opposition, but a growing movement for secession from states, with the parts of states (sometimes geographically very large parts of states) wanting to separate from the population-dense urban areas that essentially control state decision-making. Feeling ignored, put-upon, and mistreated, state secessionists want to take their fate into their own hands. At present, there’s little prospect of adding stars to the American flag, but these movements do indicate a widespread sense of dissatisfaction among (mostly rural) populations who

Right-Wing Victory In Italy

Yesterday, when we looked at the final polling going into the Italian elections, it appeared that the coalition of right-wing parties seeking to curb forced migration would take roughly a combined 32 to 35 percent of the vote. As it turns out, they did even better, coming in with an estimated 37%. This is still short of a single-party majority, but impossible to ignore. It adds up to what is likely 123 seats in the lower house of the legislature where they previously held 22.

Hillary Clinton isn’t ready to let go of her election loss to President Trump. Clinton is in Mumbai, India, at the India Today Conclave, a “a meeting point for the best minds from India and around the world to map the geopolitical and economic future of the country.” But instead of keeping her focus on the complex and numerous problems facing India, Clinton took aim Monday at Americans who voted for Trump. Her patronizing and condescending words targeted voters in states that twice voted for Obama, and show she still doesn’t understand why Americans didn’t vote for her.

NEW DELHI —Hillary Clinton said over the weekend during a trip to India that America did not “deserve” the presidency of Donald Trump. Clinton spoke at a Mumbai event where the former presidential candidate schmoozed with Bollywood stars and was warmly introduced as the “woman who should have been the president of the United States of America,” by a well-known journalist. In her speech, Clinton spoke of the dangers of Russian influence and authoritarianism in regimes around the globe. “These are perilous times,” she said.

Around the world, different races have varying levels of access to wealth and resources. And in America, the disparity between black and white social mobility is still huge. Which is why one chef is challenging the way people understand racial wealth disparity by charging white customers at his pop-up restaurant more than people of colour. SAARTJ is the brainchild of New Orleans-based chef Tunde Wey. Anyone can dine there but white customers will face an $18 (£13) increase in their bill, compared to others. Tunde is originally from Lagos, Nigeria, and he’s previously organised a nation-wide dinner series called ‘Blackness

‘Coward’. That was the word President Trump chose to describe a security guard who failed to stop America’s most recent school shooting atrocity. He said the inaction by the guard, Scot Peterson, was ‘frankly disgusting’ and he either ‘didn’t react properly under pressure’ or he ‘didn’t have the courage.’ Trump concluded: ‘He certainly did a poor job.’ I thought of this devastating critique when I heard today that Trump had abandoned all his headline-grabbing gun control plans in the wake of last month’s massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
