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.

Down in Mexico, elections are on Sunday, and everyone is supposed to vote. The new president will take over in December, five months away. (Snip) Mexico can teach us a thing or two about voting. The Mexicans have a wonderful voter ID system, as my friend Allan Wall explained: Each Mexican voter has a government-issued photographic voter ID card, which he presents to election authorities. They have a book with the photograph of each and every voter precinct. Each precinct has such a book. Across from the election authorities are seated representatives from various political parties.

Victor Davis Hanson, writing in American Greatness, surveys how history’s bad ideas inspire the “progressives.” He focuses on the plans for court packing, the resegregation of students in universities, the growing movements to censor speech, restaurants’ decision to refuse service to those whose views they disagree with and local governments’ nullification of laws (sanctuary cities). (Snip) Unfortunately for them, it seems not to be working so well this time. The growing #WalkAway movement, in which lifelong Democrats publicly announce they are walking away from the party, shows they supposed wrong about “the ignorance and gullibility of the unenlightened.”

I have been asked about this repeatedly: [tweet from Paul Sperry] Validating Paul Sperry’s tweet. Yes, FBI Agent Peter Strzok failed his polygraph and his supervisors were notified on January 16th, 2016, his results were “out of scope“. Meaning he failed his polygraph test. Yet he was never removed from any responsibilities; and against dept policy, he did not have his clearance revoked until he could clear. This was discussed during the Rosenstein testimony and overlooked by most. [video] After Strzok was recently removed from official responsibility within the FBI, his security clearances were retroactively revoked.

With the national debate set to go into overtime on abortion with the upcoming Supreme Court nomination, an eloquent argument for choosing life comes from an unexpected source - young David Hogg of North Carolina, who has often been confused with high-school gun-control activist David Hogg of Parkland, Florida, due to similar age, appearance and name - but absolutely opposite points of view. As I wrote here a few months ago, the North Carolina kid was pretty impressive, and I hoped we´d hear more of him. (Snip) He published one of his letters to his deceased twin brother that he

What a fascinating and momentous time we live in—a time that may well be remembered as an awakening of our great nation. President Trump, the catalyst, has changed the debate in this country on seemingly everything from identity politics and immigration to trade and foreign policy. Barack Obama said he wanted to “fundamentally transform” the United States, and did his best to carry out that promise to the detriment of the country. But it seems Trump could be the greater “transformative” president. All for the good—a transformation back to our constitutional and historical roots after almost a century of progressivism. And

Sometimes fate tosses you a softball. Recently, I drafted an op-ed asking whether the United States actually needs more people. Is 320 million—give or take, given the birthrates of those already here—enough? If not, why not? If we need more people, why? What do we need them to do? The editorial process being what it is, it took a few days for the piece to appear. And it just so happens that, when it did, Bret Stephens published a column in the New York Times purporting to answer precisely the question I had asked. The United States needs more immigrants,

Legal experts say it’s likely special counsel Robert Mueller secretly gained access to the National Rifle Association’s tax returns as part of the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, according to a McClatchy report. Mueller’s team is reportedly looking into NRA donors with links to Russia and investigating whether some donors used the organization to illegally funnel foreign money to President Trump’s campaign. The NRA spent $30 million backing Trump in the 2016 presidential election. NRA officials maintain that the organization has not been contacted by the FBI, but legal experts told McClatchy D.C. that it would be “routine” for investigators

Democrat hate speech targeting deplorables has always worked -- on their own voters. Libeling Republicans as racist, homophobic morons has kept Democrat voters in line. President Trump laughs at their insults, and just gets stronger. Suddenly, one more Trump success. The Democrat line is breaking. Our minorities are breaking free. President Trump’s off the charts achievements on jobs and security are improving the lives of every single Democrat identity voting bloc. A small, but increasingly significant number are noticing. With his MAGA gains on the economy and foreign affairs, President Trump is slowly chipping away at the Democrat Party’s foundations.

This weekend, Washington mourned the iconic Charles Krauthammer’s passing. (Snip) The “rule of law” is not a magic wand. It is possible only in a community that has agreed to live under its provisions. Even within such a community, it must enforced by the power of the state. Law enforcement is manageable as long its resources are commensurate with the reasonably expected degree of law-breaking. The situation is different when we are dealing with outsiders who seek entry into the community. By nature, that is more of a security challenge than a legal one. If the outsiders are not legally

On the day after Thanksgiving in 2016, Ed Corrigan, then the vice president for policy promotion at the Heritage Foundation, was summoned to Trump Tower in New York to join the senior leadership team of the Trump transition. From inside the building where the climactic personnel decisions of “The Apprentice” were once taped, Corrigan oversaw the staffing of 10 different domestic agencies. Donald Trump, the former reality-TV star, was now the president-elect of the United States, and he had an administration to fill.

Although not yet even halfway through his first term, President Donald Trump got 19 percent to place him in fourth place, ahead of both Bushes, John F. Kennedy and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Liberals claim to despise Trump voters for all sorts of reasons, but Nancy Sinatra, daughter of the late great Frank Sinatra, made it clear on social media that she specifically hates Trump voters – and “especially the women” – for wanting to overturn Roe v. Wade. Hours before President Donald Trump announced his Supreme Court pick, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) tweeted out a dire warning that all of Trump’s potential nominees “want to take away a woman’s constitutional right to make her own health care decisions.” “We cannot go back to the days before Roe v.

We told you it would happen, and it finally has. Conservatives long predicted that feminism and transgenderism were ultimately incompatible, but for a long time it seemed like the LGBT movement might just hold them together. Well, on Saturday that movement burst open, as lesbians led the parade in attacking transgenderism. "Transactivism Erases Lesbians!" read a banner that temporarily led the Pride in London march in the heart of Britain´s capital. This banner naturally caused quite a stir, with London Mayor Sadiq Khan denouncing it in a statement. "Pride is about celebrating difference and London´s amazing LGBT+ community," Khan´s spokesperson told PinkNews.

Hours before President Trump was to name his second Supreme Court Justice nominee, Sen. Chuck Schumer was whining on the Senate floor. The Senate Minority Leader had his feelings hurt because Trump had not consulted him – or any Democrats – in his Supreme Court pick.

Stockton, California will become the first city in the country to participate in a test of Universal Basic Income, in which 100 residents will be given $500-dollars-a-month, with no strings attached. The program aims to create a level of income that no one will fall beneath. By providing impoverished residents a regular sum of money that they can use on anything they wish, be it food, clothes, gas, or starting a new venture, those behind the program believe it could go a long way to give people enough support to try out new ideas.

It´s often been observed that special counsel Robert Mueller, assigned to investigate alleged Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign, has yet to charge anyone with a crime involving Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign. The biggest of Mueller´s indictments, that of one-time Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, has no connection at all to collusion. And until a few days ago, it appeared to have no connection to Donald Trump, either. Now, though, Mueller has revealed why he believes the Manafort prosecution is related to the 2016 Trump campaign. It´s a small part, a very small part, of the overall charges

Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court, and President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to succeed him, is the doomsday scenario liberals feared when Senate Republicans thwarted the appointment of Merrick Garland in 2016: The GOP’s brazen act of democratic sabotage will almost certainly deliver the high court to the far right for a generation. In the years ahead, the court will probably further erode reproductive rights, gay rights and voting rights, ushering in the darkest era in American history since the post-Reconstruction period.

WASHINGTON — Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday. Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide. But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each
