Trump’s Strong Words to North Korea Reflect the Stance of Strong Presidents

The Left Wing propaganda organs and Democrat “leadership” will not accept much of anything that President Donald Trump has to say these days - even if it is offering his condolences over the horrors in Virginia this past weekend. It actually goes beyond mere hype that erupts from one political party after losing a hard fought election. It is much more and it becomes very old after so much has been lobbed against the duly-elected president. The more obvious of ridiculous attacks came after Trump’s strong words to North Korea’s Communist dictator, Kim Jong-un.

Former Secretary of Defense in the Obama Administration, Leon Panetta, has been weighing in on Trump’s stance, and although he had some intelligent remarks on the North Korean situation, Panetta took the low road: “The question is: “Does [Trump] get so frustrated with the North Korean leader — who’s yelling every other day — that he feels that somehow the North Korean leader is attacking his manhood?”

A solemn nation bravely focuses on its most urgent priority . . . statues

Some of them have been around for more than a century. When everyone from FDR to Jimmy Carter to Barack Obama was president, they were just statues. Inanimate objects that stood in town squares or on college campuses. Whether you liked them or not, that was all they were.

Today? Donald Trump is president, and he likes the statues. Ergo . . . national crisis! The statues must come down immediately!

Sharpton targets the Jefferson Memorial

Racial arsonist Al Sharpton is demanding the federal government shut down the historic Jefferson Memorial in the nation’s capital because the long-dead president honored by the monument owned slaves.

Thomas Jefferson, America’s third president, the man who wrote the justly revered Declaration of Independence, is also the man who penned this noble sentence: “I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” Perhaps he was thinking of future Al Sharptons when he wrote it.

Someone tarred and feathered the Jefferson Davis memorial in Arizona, because it’s briefly socially

Let’s talk a little bit about human behavior. Some people try to do the right thing because their hearts incline to what’s good, and because it’s important to them to act responsibly. It’s a principle they embrace internally. Even if they could get away with doing what’s wrong, they wouldn’t, because they value their own integrity and respect not only the rights of others, but also the basic limits and boundaries that help to keep this a civilized society.

RINOs bash Trump over Charlottesville response

The Left—and many in the media, along with the usual sycophants at National Review—purport to be outraged that President Trump had the temerity to call out all the violence perpetrated in Charlottesville instead of calling out only the white-nationalist marchers.

Of course, if Trump had denounced only the white-nationalists, the Left and their ideological appendages would have quickly shifted to criticizing something else about the way he did it. They would complain about the adjectives Trump used, or the shirt he was wearing, or the tilt of his head as he approached the microphones, or the bird that cast a shadow while chirping overhead as he began to speak—they would have found something, anything at all to animate the same, dishonest narrative that Trump is secretly supporting white-nationalism and is secretly a racist.

The Democratic Party is a painful reminder of the Democrats’ 1864 plan to allow re-instatement slave

This week, we’ve learned that Democrats favor dismantling any and every visible vestige of America’s ugly past.  Specifically, public reminders of anyone that participated in or tolerated the slave trade must be eliminated.  With that in mind, we have no choice but to dismantle the Modern Democratic Party.  It’s very existence stands as a monument to a past of violence, hatred, and an 1864 effort to defeat Abraham Lincoln by re-instating slavery.

By the end of Lincoln’s first term, a shattered United States was sick of death and destruction. Democrats hoped to exploit this to unseat the President, so they came up with a plan.  What if, they wondered, we just promise to end the fighting as quickly as possible?

CNN Comentator Angela Rye: Jeffseron, Washington statues ‘all need to come down’

Meet CNN comentator Angela Rye. According to her bio, she’s “US attorney and the Principal and CEO of IMPACT Strategies, a political advocacy firm in Washington, DC.”

Since the election of Donald Trump, she’s emerged as on of CNN’s most prominent purveyors of race-baced lunacy. No matter what Trump says or does, Rye’s ready to twist it in a racially motivated hate crime. If Trump sends out a tweet, it’s racist.  If he releases a budget, it’s racist. If he speaks to the Boy Scouts, it’s racist. If he has an idea on healthcare, it’s racist.

General Pershing, pigs, Philippines, and Islamic terrorism

“These Juramentado attacks were materially reduced in number by a practice that the Mohamedans held in abhorrence. The bodies were publicly buried in the same grave with a dead pig. It was not pleasant to have to take such measures, but the prospect of going to hell instead of heaven sometimes deterred the would-be assassins.”

These were the words of General Pershing in his autobiography. According to the New York Times (despite having reported on it at the time) it’s a myth. The Washington Post agrees. They both cite fact checks by PolitiFact and Snopes. The problem with all the fact checks is… the facts.

Paying Protesters To Destabilize the U.S.

Wealthy leftists engage professional grievance hustlers to pay protesters to destabilize and destroy America. And people are standing by watching like a train wreck in slow motion, waiting for someone else to do something.

At anti-Trump protests during the election, protesters admitted they answered ads on Craigslist and were getting paid to protest Trump. The protests are largely paid for by George Soros, MoveOn.org, reclusive billionaire Jonathan Lewis, and pushed by David Brock at Media Matters for America. I’ve been writing about this for several years.

Erasing Democrat Party’s Fingerprints on History

The liberal left’s desire to tear down any and all memories of the Confederate States of America is reaching a crescendo.  Statues are being torn down.  State flags are being redesigned and burned.  According to the Democrats, and their Black Lives Matter brethren, all vestiges of the dark time when the Southern States practiced slavery must be stricken from the record.

There’s an old saying. Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.  You can’t truly erase history.  Shouldn’t we seek to learn from it.

Trump Was Right To Denounce The Anti-Fascist Action (aka Antifa) in the Charlottesville Riot

As a Jewish person, I denounce neo Nazis, KKK and white supremacists on the far extreme right. Especially those led by alt-Reich leaders Richard Spencer and David Duke in the most recent Charlottesville protest, turned violent riot. These neo Nazis, KKK racists and anti-Semites are an extreme fringe group with little political influence. Their leaders Spencer and Duke could not even be elected- dogcatchers. The more dangerous group is the antifa who also engaged in violent action in Charlottesville.

President Trump was right to call out and specifically denounce this vicious, anti-American, anti-democratic, anti-Semitic, violent extremist group on the far left.

Why is Apple funding a big fat hate group?

Apple CEO Tim Cook is pledging $2 million “to help lead the fight against…hate.”

So far so good, right?

But it turns out Cook is giving half of that tidy sum to—wait for it—the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Virtue and the Moral Fall of Civilization

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.  It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams

“Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom.”Benjamin Franklin

“Whenever we are planning for posterity, we ought to remember that virtue is not hereditary.”Thomas Paine

“It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains.”Patrick Henry

Civilizations fall rapidly due to an inescapable catastrophe. Water sources dry up. A powerful empire invades.

From Contradiction to Reprobation – NY Anti-hate Protesters Resolve to Hate Trump

America seems caught up in the promotion of minorities such as the LGBT and leftist causes, but tolerance and diversity has stalled and has begun to roll backwards down the hill to its own demise.

Shortly after the Charlottesville protests, Facebook, that bastion of balance, which is now pounding away at conservative materials in a so called cleanup, allowed a call for protesters to come out to Trump Towers and spew hatred.

The Dollars and Sense of Trump’s Missile Defense

Kim Jong Un has decided to walk back his recent threats to bomb the island of Guam, and for now, the world can breathe a collective sigh of relief. But how many times over the last few weeks have we all gone to bed wondering if tomorrow will be the day Kim Jong Un nukes the United States?  And if it isn’t North Korea, then maybe it will be Iran? The world is an increasingly dangerous place, and President Trump’s missile defense budget needs to be passed quickly to provide the funding needed to protect the U.S. from foreign attackers.

Guess what Al Sharpton thinks of the Jefferson Memorial…

“Should they take down the Jefferson Memorial?”

That was the question posed to Al Sharpton by Charlie Rose.  Instead of answering it, Sharpton dodged.  What he said, however, was telling.

“When you look at the fact that public monuments are supported by public funds you’re asking me to subsidize the insult of my family. I would repeat that the public should not be paying to uphold somebody who has had that kind of background. You have private museums, you have other things that you may want to do there.”

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.
