Trump Admin. Plays “Guess Who the Enemy Is” at 9/11 Remembrance

Trump Admin. Plays “Guess Who the Enemy Is” at 9/11 Remembrance

It’s pretty hard for a president whose signature campaign phrase was “radical Islamic terror” —a phrase he used countless times—to get through a 9/11 commemorative speech without once using the words “Islam” or “Islamic.” But President Trump managed to do it, as did his top brass: Vice President Pence, Secretary of Defense Mattis and Attorney General Sessions. All of them used every term possible to keep America guessing just whom they were talking about when describing the murderers of thousands in the heart of New York City. That’s particularly egregious because we face the very same foe today, from without and within our nation. Trump is not the first president to conceal our would-be conquerors There’s a history of presidents protecting this enemy from the American people, rather than the other way around. President George W. Bush had executed a comparable feat only six days after the event in question. On September 17, 2001, shoeless, facing TV cameras at the Islamic Center of Washington, he told a devastated nation that “Islam is peace.” He stood next to the likes of Nihad Awad, a longtime advocate for Hamas and the executive director of CAIR. President Bush was the first to purge his government of words about Islam: From an NBC report of an April 24, 2008, AP article: Federal agencies, including the State Department, the Department of Homeland Security and the National Counter Terrorism Center, are telling their people not to describe Islamic extremists as “jihadists” or “mujahedeen,” according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. Lingo like “Islamo-fascism” is out, too. U.S. officials may be “unintentionally portraying terrorists, who lack...
The Greatest Threat

The Greatest Threat

Ominous rise of protests threatens the nation We all need to be aware of a threat that is more menacing than North Korea. The hard Left has made its mission to suppress—violently if necessary—forms of expression they disagree with. And it ain’t just Nazis. It started on campuses, where invited speakers: Heather Mac Donald, who wrote The War on Cops, Charles Murray, who wrote the Bell Curve, Condoleeza Rice, Breitbart writer, Milo Yiannopoulos and others were blocked from speaking by massive protests, some of which turned violent. A number of the protests included masked non-students from anti-capitalist groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter. The reasoning was, the speakers’ views warranted the protests, and therefore they had no right to speak. We saw the next stage at Charlottesville, VA. A rally of reputed white supremacists, who had a court-ordered permit were prevented from speaking by the state police, after Governor McAuliffe, a Clinton pal, declared a state of emergency. The rally had drawn a large crowd of Antifa protesters, some of whom were carrying weapons, as were some of the attendees of the rally. Although two secure pens that had been erected successfully walled off the two groups, the state police, according to witnesses, forced the rally group directly into the protest group outside the pens. Witnesses also said the police stood back and did nothing until after a woman was killed when a man believed to be a supremacist allegedly drove his car into the crowd. There were allegations that the conflict was a false-flag operation. LA Key, a guest on a CNN show said protesters were “coming off...
Mr. President: Keep Your Promise to Black Americans on DACA

Mr. President: Keep Your Promise to Black Americans on DACA

A Wall St. Journal article on August 25th discusses the people who were brought to the US by their illegal alien parents, called by some “dreamers,” though they are just as illegal as their parents. But in June of 2012 Obama, in effect, rewrote the Immigration and Naturalization Act, giving them legal status under DACA, which allows them to stay here and also work. According to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, 1,267,834 applications had been accepted, through June 30, 2016. During his campaign, Mr. Trump repeatedly promised to end DACA on day one of his term. As the WSJ points out, candidate Trump called DACA “an ‘unconstitutional executive amnesty,’ but, after [he] took office, he softened his stance and has allowed the program to continue, with his administration approving applications and renewals.” “‘DACA is a very, very difficult subject for me,’” he said in a news conference in February [and other times]. ‘It’s one of the most difficult subjects I have because you have these incredible kids.’” The late Jerry Lewis, who spearheaded fundraising for research into Multiple Dystrophy, called his beneficiaries “my kids,” but they really were kids. Trump’s kids, under DACA rules could be up to 36 years old today: To be eligible for DACA, applicants must have been “under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012,” meaning they could be 36 today. So, Mr. Trump’s calling them “incredible kids” is based on sentimental fantasy, not fact. Now, eleven states have given the DOJ until September 5th to start enforcing existing law against beneficiaries of Obama’s illegal amnesty, or they will add DACA to their...
Was Charlottesville a False Flag?

Was Charlottesville a False Flag?

Was the unrest in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, August 12th a riot by white supremacists, as the Media has labeled it, or something even more sinister? Was it a false-flag attack orchestrated by the Left and Democrats to permanently damage the president and compel Americans to view everything through the lens of racism? How the Media purposefully misreported the incident In the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, the ever-Trump-unfriendly media has focused on the president’s failure to immediately call out those protesting the Robert E. Lee statue’s removal, many—but not all—of whom were white nationalists and neo-Nazis. On the day of the incident, he said, “‘We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides,’ quoted the Los Angeles Times, “then, looking into the camera, he repeated, ‘On many sides.’” After a storm of criticism for not calling out the Klan, et al., the next day the White House issued a statement saying “of course” the president had included in his condemnation “white supremacists, KKK, neo-Nazi and all extremist groups,” and that he “called for national unity and bringing all Americans together.” But the press continued to rip him for, as the LA Times put it, “not denouncing the far-right groups that initiated the violence, and the man who drove into a crowd of counter-protesters that left Heather Heyer dead.” After again blasting “the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups,” on Monday, and the Media’s continued harsh criticism, Trump told the press on Tuesday, that he didn’t initially attack those groups because “unlike you,” he waited for the facts to...
Annoy a Liberal — Honor Calvin Coolidge on Independence Day

Annoy a Liberal — Honor Calvin Coolidge on Independence Day

True or false, did an American president actually consider one of his greatest accomplishments “minding my own business?” Keep reading. . . One of my favorite July Fourth traditions is remembering the life of our thirtieth president. Calvin Coolidge owns the distinction of being the only chief executive born on this day (July 4, 1872, and serving from 1923-29). Ideally, I would offer a brief biographical sketch followed by a few hundred words of well-crafted praise. But that wouldn’t be fair. . . I’ll offer a little but I don’t want to cheat readers out of the joy of discovering Calvin Coolidge on their own. His legacy is that rich and rewarding. Dr. Steven Hayward, the author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Presidents from Wilson to Obama, grades the presidents primarily on their fidelity to the Constitution, as opposed to legislative advancements. He gives Silent Cal an A+ — the only president to win that honor! Most other historians would rather fawn over those leaders (Woodrow Wilson, FDR and, sorry, conservatives, Teddy Roosevelt) who grew the size and scope of the federal government. Coolidge, when he is mentioned at all, is remembered as a moral but ineffective leader who slept his presidency away. Coolidge was, indeed, a creature of routine. A country lawyer from Plymouth Notch, Vermont and later governor of Massachusetts, he exemplified, both in word and deed, those time-honored traits of self-reliance, hard work and living within your means. A man of simplicity and no pretense, he is among the last of those who recognized the limitations of presidential power, seeing the overreach of the federal...
Trump Can Restore the Monroe Doctrine and Save Thousands of Lives

Trump Can Restore the Monroe Doctrine and Save Thousands of Lives

In 2013, then-secretary of state Kerry said: “The era of the Monroe Doctrine is over … That’s worth applauding. That’s not a bad thing.” Why is it not a bad thing? Perhaps Kerry feels that way because the Obama administration had consistently handed the advantage to America’s enemies. A good example is Obama’s doing nothing about Iran’s alleged building of a missile site in Venezuela, reported in 2011. (See below.) Abrogating the Monroe Doctrine clearly endorses building such a site, or anything else Iran chooses to do in the Western Hemisphere. The sanctions held the project back, while Kerry was working on the Iran deal; now that it’s finished, it allows Iran to work with ballistic missiles, so this site and others can now be completed. Meanwhile, Venezuelans face starvation and sickness following the total economic collapse of the country’s Socialist system. Government-control of businesses and its complete failure to provide food and medical supplies to the people “has led to Venezuelans killing flamingos, anteaters, and even zoo animals for food in a desperate search for protein,” said Forbes, adding that “Food shortages have resulted in the average daily caloric intake dropping to well below 2,000 calories per day.” Inmates at Auschwitz were given about 1400 calories a day worth of food. Forbes also reports: “The healthcare system has collapsed, with patients dying of simple ailments through lack of facilities, medicines, and basic equipment…” This instability is a danger to neighboring nations as well. It’s difficult to see how we can simply observe this catastrophe unfold, as Obama did because he refused to interfere with a Socialist country. An affront...
