While you’re freaking out about statues and Nazis, Trump is bringing back America’s coal industry

The media may think President Trump’s job is to make comments about race riots, but it’s actually to govern - making policy decisions and ensuring the smooth operation of the executive branch of the government. That involves more than the palace intrigue you often hear about at the White House. Far more importantly, it involves the decisions the president makes on a variety of matters that impact the lives of ordinary Americans.

It hasn’t been easy to make decisions that require the consent of Congress because the current Congress contains so many frauds and cowards, not to mention any specific names like John McCain, Susan Collins or Lisa Murkowski.

VIDEO: Herman Cain on Hannity, explaining who’s really behind all the racial animus

There’s a part of me that wants to just stop talking about this. People are getting so angry with each other, to the point where people who should know better are actually accusing other people of being Nazi sympathizers because they think all parties bore some responsibility for what happened in Charlottesville. When things get to that point it sort of seems like we all need to take a break.

But you can’t, really, because in the midst of such tumult, someone has to bring some truth - especially when there are people who are pushing this intentionally because it’s part of an agenda. So take it away, boss:

Can’t believe I’m typing this: Ted Nugent says Kid Rock ‘ain’t running for jack squat’

If you’ll recall, back when this story first broke, I expressed my extreme doubts about Kid Rock running for Senate. He’d be challenging Michigan’s Debbie Stabenow and, even though I suspect he could possibly win that race, the whole thing seemed implausible to an extraordinary degree. Starting with the fact that his “campaign” merch was being sold on Warner Brothers’ website and ending with the fact that he still hasn’t had an FEC filing, it all felt like nothing more than shameless self-promotion.

Trump was right that left-wing protesters contributed to the Charlottesville violence, says—NBC?

Props to NBC. You probably know we’re generally not fans - not of them and not of the MSM in general. Just yesterday I took them all to task for essentially functioning as the propaganda arm of the alt-left.

But in fairness, I will say this: I’ve spent time in newsrooms and there are people there - not necessarily conservatives, either - who think it’s important to get the facts right regardless of who comes out looking good as a result. They tend to believe that “facts have a liberal bias,” so sometimes when they think they’re being factual they’re really not.

Trump takes aim at the “alt-left”

President Trump’s politically incorrect insistence on blaming radical leftists for their rightful share of the violence on Saturday in Charlottesville is being met with predictable howls of outrage by the Left and the media.

At the protest, alleged neo-Nazi James Alex Fields, used his car to plow into a crowd of counter-protesters not far from the scheduled rally at Emancipation Park. About 20 people were injured, one of them fatally. Paralegal Heather D. Heyer, 32, was killed.

Outing Left Wing Fascists-Nazis

I like most of my fellow Republicans and conservatives was a victim of the progressive paradigm, embedded in all our institutions of culture, from academia to Hollywood to the media. ...the story that we had accepted, like suckers, was the idea that fascism and Nazism are inherently “right wing.”Dinesh D’SouzaThe Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left

For some years now I have been shouting from the rooftops that the Fascists/Nazis were, are, and always will be a Left-wing phenomenon. I have called it the “Big Lie” (e.g. “Right Wing Nazis: The Big Lie”), and I am delighted to see that Dinesh D’Souza sees this outrageous falsehood in the same light—naming his most recent book “The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left.” (Unless otherwise stated all of the quotes in this article come from D’Souza’s book).

Don’t Fall For Leftists Dividing Us Racially to Get Trump

As a proud grateful American who happens to be black, I am frustrated by Leftists’/fake news media’s frenzied exploitation of the racial violence in Charlottesville. How can justice, peace, love and unity prevail when leftists are obsessed with using any and every opportunity to further their socialistic/progressive agenda and mission to overturn the peoples’ election of Trump? Leftists/fake news media promote their narrative that America as founded sucks; is eternally racist, sexist and homophobic. Leftists are not interested in truth, fairness or Americans getting along. Patriotic brotherhood would throw a wrench into Leftists’ American-white-males-are-the-source-of-all-evil-in-the-world story line.

Fake news media is having a cow over Trump rightfully and truthfully declaring all sides guilty of spreading racial hate in Charlottesville. Leftists refuse to acknowledge that black racism is just as evil as white racism. Where were Leftists when Black Lives Matter declared it open season on killing whites and cops?

California’s Political Water Scams Back on Ballot

My 2016 article, Why Can’t California Farmers Get the Water They Need?, exposed Gov. Brown’s shadow government appointees at the State Water Resources Control Board that ordered the release of massive amounts of water from the New Melones Reservoir and Lake Tulloch, to save a dozen fish, and how Gov. Brown systematically booted a number of qualified people off of the California Water Commission, the body that is deciding how to spend $2.7 billion in public funds for Prop. 1 Water Bond water storage projects.

Also revealed was Gerald Meral—a shadowy figure continuously involved in a series of dubious parks, natural resource and water bond ballot initiatives. Meral is also the highly controversial Natural Resources deputy secretary who famously claimed, “BDCP [Bay Delta Conservation Plan ] is not about, and has never been about saving the Delta. The Delta cannot be saved,” as, in April 2013, he directed the BCDP for Gov. Jerry Brown’s effort to build the peripheral Delta tunnels.

NFL Commissioner: the National Anthem ‘is special to me,’ but… ‘we have to understand the other si

On Monday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell answered a little over 45 minutes’ worth of questions from Arizona Cardinals club seat holders.  Most of it was the standard kind of football-related stuff you’d expect.  Most, but not all.

During the proceedings, Goodell was asked about NFL players who’d been sitting during the national anthem when it’s been played before this year’s pre-season games.  If there were any team owners looking for leadership from the league, they’re going to be disappointed. Goodell’s answer seems to suggest it’s not an issue the NFL is interested in addressing.

Here we go: Trump reminds us that the alt-left had a lot to do with Charlottesville; media wets itse

Alternate headline: Trump reads this site?

He could certainly do worse. He could watch CNN.

Apparently these are the rules: If Nazis are involved, Nazis are 100 percent at fault for anything and everything that happens, no matter who else may have done what. That’s irrelevant. The people on the other side could show up with submachine goes and open fire. Doesn’t matter. If you acknowledge that this played any role at all in causing the problems, you might as well be putting David Duke’s name into nomination for the presidency.

Those are the rules. As you might expect, Trump doesn’t follow the rules:

Thought crimes and misdemeanors

One could almost draw the conclusion that certain elements of the left were looking for an incident such as what transpired in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend to bolster their momentum in altering our understanding of American history. In what can only be described as a Stalinesque attempt to cleanse America of its ‘shame’ over events of the early 19th Century, the left is doing all it can to destroy any extant memento of the Confederacy, by removing statues, memorials, flags and other reminders of that tragic period in American history because all these artifacts are ‘racist.’ This is tantamount to Stalin having Zinoviev’s and Kamenev’s images removed from official soviet pictorial records.

Yes, media, the alt-left is as bad as the alt-right . . . and here’s why you don’t see it

In followup to my piece from earlier this morning, I want to focus very specifically on the one question - which was really an accusation - that reporters kept shouting at President Trump during his presser yesterday. Whenever Trump pointed out that the alt-left bore some responsibility for what happened in Charlottesville, reporters demanded to know: “Are you putting the alt-left on the same moral plane as the alt-right?”

The president replied that he wasn’t looking to put anyone on any moral plane. He was simply stating an obvious truth about what happened in Charlottesville.

The Futility of Anti-Trump Boycotts

The anti-President Donald Trump phenomena is a uniquely unparalleled mass hysteria that, to my knowledge, has never been witnessed before in America history. Vastly larger than what was done to Presidents George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan, we’ve never seen such a massive pre-emptive attempt to bring down a legitimately-elected president – before he even took office or did anything as president.

Even today, seven months after his inauguration, the “elite” still do not understand how a man they despise could be elected and how he has kept his base of supporters despite the unrelenting demonization and smearing by the media, academia, celebrities, government bureaucrats, and by the political elite of both parties.

Paging Orwell: Baltimore dismantles and removes four civil war statues in the dead of night

I’ll be honest.  I’m a little torn on the whole “Civil War statue” issue. Thanks to an elongated family tree, my great-grandfather fought for the Union in the Civil War and (all racial issues aside) there’s part of me that doesn’t completely understand the need to lionize people who would have killed him and seen the country torn asunder.  That said, I also despise fascism, understand the “it’s part of history” argument, and am appalled by the footage of angry mobs ripping these relics down.

With all of that in mind, if we’re going to remove the statues, I’d argue there’s a right way and a wrong way to do it. Last night, in the dead of night, Baltimore did it the wrong way. It seems the City Council decided that, while everyone slept, it would go the Orwellian route and make all the unpleasant history disappear.

Why does Keith Ellison think NK’s Kim is a better leader than Trump?

Last week, on a panel at the Netroots Nation conference, Congressman Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) said, “North Korea is a serious thing. You have this guy [Trump] making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there. Kim Jong-un, the world always thought he was not a responsible leader. Well, he’s acting more responsible than this guy is.”

Soon after realizing the potential political problem he had created, Ellison retracted his comments for the TV news cameras.

What does this tell us? Ellison, who is also deputy chairman of the Democratic Party, has spoken. In a competition between President Trump and Kim Jong-un, the Supreme Leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, a U.S. congressman who is also the deputy leader of his political party finds his own president to be the more irresponsible leader.

Special Ops Should Be Off Limits to Women

In an historic 2015 announcement, Defense Secretary Ash Carter declared all combat positions would now be open to women. But for some it was not welcome news.

In strong opposition was Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford. Carter had no military background before taking the Pentagon’s top civilian job under President Obama. (Nor did he stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night or play a military person on TV.) In fact, his doctorate is in theoretical physics. Dunford, meanwhile, is a Marine general with several tours of duty in the Iraq War, plus Afghanistan. At the time of the Carter announcement, Dunford presented evidence that women suffered drawbacks not only in the more obvious areas involving strength and stamina, but were even much less capable of hitting a target. All of which Carter simply pooh-poohed as “just not definitive, not determinative.”

THE UNSTOPPABLE TRUMP TRAIN

Hard to know which body is held in lower esteem, the Congress or the media. But for a long time the media thought they were invincible, based largely on their success after forming the JournOlist in 2007—a cabal of 400 leftists who vowed to destroy anyone who said a single bad word about the poseur “president” Barack Obama.

When said poseur denied his lifelong friendships and political associations with fulminating anti-Semites, enacted the disaster of socialized medicine and socialized public education, eviscerated our military, doubled the national debt, signed a deal with genocidal Iran, and sang the praises of peaceful lslam as dozens of horrific Muslim terrorist attacks around the world attested to a decidedly sub-human species, JournOlist went into action to squash his critics like they were so many pesky cockroaches.

The Left’s War on Confederate Monuments

The American Left has declared war on Confederate monuments.

Not just Southern military leaders – most notably General Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia – but even the bronze statue known as “Old Joe” in a “memorial to men of the Gainesville [Florida] area who lost their lives in the Civil War.”  Old Joe is being evicted from where he’s stood, motionless, outside the Alachua County Administrative Building, since 1904.

The metallic history of the Confederate States of America (1861-1865) is being erased from parks, courthouses, and campuses across the nation. Can the book banning and burning be far behind?

Well, if this is how it is to be, let’s take a page from Saul Alinsky’s book, “Rules for Radicals” – specifically his Rule #4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” 

And, let’s start with The Southern Manifesto of 1956.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, I TRIED TO WARN YOU

I have warned for more than 27 years that we are in a spiritual battle of good versus evil. White people are under attack – especially white, straight, conservative Christian men of power. The children of the lie hate them because they represent good. They love truth, freedom, responsibility, the values that make America great.

Evil already wiped out black and Hispanic men – separated them from their families and deluded their thinking. Evil, too, has chipped away at whites, the last men standing in the way to stop evil from completely taking over America.
