Last week in Mumbai, HILLARY SPOKE THE TRUTH. It may be one of the only times she was completely truthful, but make no mistake about it, Hillary Clinton accurately defined what ALL progressives actually think when she said:
“So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign ‘Make America Great Again’ was looking backwards,” she continued. “‘You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women, you know, getting jobs, you don’t want to, you know, see that Indian-American succeeding more than you are–whatever your problem is, I’m going to solve it.’”
THAY HATE US. With a white hot passion, and they are becoming more and more vocal and unhinged about that opposition, which should make all of us pay close attention. No tactic is low enough for them, other than possibly an armed revolution because I don’t believe they have the courage to actually put their life on the line, but they will lie, divide, and destroy anyone who presents an obstacle to acting on their hatred and tearing apart this President and by extension the country. In fact, John Hawkins over at Townhall has accurately defined the techniques we are up against in this excellent article, and the following passage caught my attention:
“If a conservative puts his opinion out there, but no one is allowed to hear it, does it really matter? Liberals have worked hard to take over newspapers, Hollywood and the schools not just to indoctrinate people with their views, but to make sure conservative views can’t get out.”
Most of us here are aware of these Alinsky tactics, but many are not and that is the challenge conservatives face. Over the years, if not decades, conservatives have abdicated their roles in schools and entertainment, and have allowed leftist ideology to permeate through those institutions. We have been too nice, too accommodating, and too busy running our business’s, paying taxes, and raising families, while the left marched on unabated, aided and abetted by faux conservatives like John McCain and Bill Kristol. But I think this all coming to an end, and that fact has the left FRANTIC. The most dangerous place to be is between a progressive and power, and that’s where we find ourselves at the moment.
From Hawkins’ article:
If leftists think death and rape threats against women like Dana Loesch and Michelle Malkin are going to intimidate them into quitting, then they’re even more delusional that any of us could imagine.
I have little doubt that the Left will eventually regain power, and if it’s this fall, it will be a coin flip as to whether their first order of business will be to impeach Trump or attempt to disarm Red State America. Talk about a death wish. Yet more evidence that Liberalism is a mental disorder.
There is money on the Right. There is intelligence on the Right. What there is not is a clear vision of how to defeat the Left.
Go back to the writings of Marx, Lenin, Alinsky. You will find a coherent and consistent concept of what it will take to undermine and then defeat the Right, and when you look at the actions of the Left you will see these plans in action. You will see them in the schools, in the various media, in the speeches made by Leftist politicians and useful idiots.
And what do we have? Nothing. We have Ted Cruz, who, because he is not in lockstep with Establishment pseudo-conservatives, spends as much time fighting those who are supposedly on his side as much as he does dealing with the Left. He was shut down by the Right, including Saint Donald, and I will never forgive any of them for that.
But even Ted, who is coherent as an individual, does not seem to have a concept of a massive, organized, multi-tiered distribution of conservative thought and principles.
If politics can be compared to an orchestra, that of the Left is reading the same sheet music and has been practicing the same numbers for a century now, led by skillful conductors. On the Right, everyone has his or her own idea of what should be played, how loud, how fast, how slow, leaving out some parts and adding others, with no unifying conductor to bring them together, and it seems that their real goal is just to drown out everyone else in the band.
The government didn’t do their job in relation to Nikolas Cruz, the shooter at the Fl. high school, as was evident by the fact that there were over 30 emergency calls from his home to the local police documenting repeated occurrences of violence and mental instability. So how was he able to obtain the guns he used to kill 17 people? Guess what. It’s even worse than many realize.
According to this article , the Obama administration purged 500,000 fugitives from the gun background check system. Gee, what could possibly go wrong there? Instead of removing the ability of dangerous people from having guns, lawmakers collaborate all kinds of ways to keep decent, lay abiding citizens from getting guns, or make it extremely difficult and costly. This is a good example of Washington at its worst, and another reason why we need to fight to protect our right to bear arms.
That should have said “law abiding citizens”.
Anyway, I like this Virginia lawmaker’s defense of the second amendment.
There is something wrong with the Justice Department. Year after year things happen on their watch that should have never happened.
Ladies and Gentleman – Jeff Flake:
We will get through this, and when we do, there will be much work to do to repair the damage. There will have to be an accounting for how we got here so that we might never find ourselves here again. There will have to be an American restoration. And for the sake of the common good and for basic human decency – we will have to create a new politics. This will be the obligation of all of us – those of us in elective office, those of us who will soon not be, and those us too smart to ever engage in politics in the first place…
[N]ever has a party abandoned – fled! – its principles and deeply-held beliefs as quickly as my party fled its principles in the face of a nativist juggernaut…
If my party is going to try to pass off the degradation of the United States and her values from the White House as normal … if we are going to cloister ourselves in the alternative truth of an erratic leader … if we are going to refuse to live in the world that everyone else lives in … and reckon with the daily reality that they face – including their very real and understandable anxiety they feel … then my party might not deserve to lead.
I wish Jeff would expand on the “principles” he believes we have abandoned. Or excuse me FLED from. What are those principles Jeffy? And the degradation of the White House ??? Did Trump invite “cop murderers” for lunch at the White House? Did Trump get a blow job from an intern in the Oval Office??? What degradation are we talking about Jeffy?
I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone so full of his own self-importance as Senator (soon to be ex-Senator, thank God) Flake.
And his own self virtue. These people think awfully high of themselves, don’t they? If he ran again in AZ he would lose very badly and he knows that. He is not retiring because he wants to. He is saving himself from electoral embarrassment.
“…we will have to create a new politics (sic). …” ….. as in “transforming America”?
We all saw how well that worked out, didn’t we?
He doesn’t want “new politics”, he wants Leftist politics, possibly cloaked for the time being in new words but basically the antithesis of Constitutional governance. And because that IS the law of the land, like it or not, the only ways to achieve it are to violate that law, or to overthrow it.
Flake and McCain are two of the faces of the Left’s stealth incursions into the Republican Party. McCain got away with it for a long time, partly because of his war history and partly because he had laid a solid groundwork of support from people in the party who might not have been on the same page but liked him and only paid attention to the things he did that weren’t cockeyed.
If we want to fret about degradation in the White House, all we need to do is look at the lyrics of the President’s good friend and White House guest, Jay-Z.
If we want to fret about foreign influence on a president, we can look at the dangers posed to the country by Islam and its sworn goal of destroying the United States and all its “infidel” people, illustrated by multiple violent attacks and murders on our soil, and its defender, our last president, compared to Russia, a country which (as far as we know) has not pledged to kill us all or embarked on efforts to do so and a president who has shown absolutely no indication of being influenced by her.
On one hand we have seen open support of and defense of the Muslim Brotherhood and the arming of anti-American forces through the efforts of Obama’s Secretary of State, weapons which have been used against Americans already and which are intended to be used against Americans when any opportunity arises. On the other we have an old international rivalry which has, to date, not threatened the destruction of the United States, not resulted in attacks on our country or our people, not been given approval, defense or indication of support by a sitting president, and which has been held in check when we have had strong leadership.
The threat posed by Russia is much more of an incremental takeover of our formal, legal, form of government. And Jeff Flake is an eager supporter of this “fundamental transformation”. He and his kind, along with the political and religious motivations of our former president, are the real dangers facing this county—-mass murders or incremental creep of Leftist governance. Trump represents neither of these.
We can battle that incremental takeover of our rule of law, if we understand it, recognize it and work to stop it in its tracks and reverse its successes. That is what the Flakes fear and that is what they are fighting against.
“[N]ever has a party abandoned – fled! – its principles and deeply-held beliefs as quickly as my party fled its principles in the face of a nativist juggernaut”
Hmmm. I wonder just what “principles and deeply-held beliefs” Jeffie thinks have been abandoned.
Let’s go back to the actual “principles and deeply-held beliefs” of the Republican party, which are stated in the Constitution of the United States of America.
They include a determination to keep America for Americans. How do we know this? Well, they include specific instructions that no one who is not a Natural Born Citizen—-that is, born to a father who was a citizen at the time of the person’s birth—-could ever be president. Isn’t that pretty much the definition of the word “nativist”? One must be a “native” American to be president.
The Constitution allows for the establishment of a legal process of naturalization, to allow people to become Americans. Flake appears to be outraged at the very idea that this process must be followed, that the rule of law be respected and enforced.
The Constitution allows for the establishment of a legal process of entry into the country, to allow people to visit here and even live and work here legally. Flake appears to be outraged at the very idea that this process must be followed, that the rule of law be respected and enforced.
Flake has also it completely backwards, in squealing that the party abandoned its principles “in the face of a nativist juggernaut”, when it was that “nativist juggernaut”—–or belief that the country must be governed according to its foundational principles and established rule of law—that was the first step in decades to move the party BACK to its principles and deeply-held beliefs.
If you examine his rhetoric you see the structure of Leftist propaganda very clearly. They started to link the words “white” and “nationalist” in a move to create the impression that being a nationalist was the same thing as being a white supremacist. As usual, their efforts at semantic infiltration worked, and now the two words seem inextricably joined in a single definition. So now we see a slight shift as the word “nativist” is being brought into the definition, spreading the illusion that to be a nationalist is the same thing as being a white nationalist which is the same thing as being a white supremacist which is the same thing as being a nativist which is the same thing as being a racist. This will morph into a belief that the necessity to govern the nation according to its Constitution and rule of law is the same thing as being a nationalist which is the same thing as being a white nationalist which is the same thing as being a white supremacist which is the same thing as being a nativist which is the same thing as being a racist, at which point they will loop around to the screech that that the Constitution was written by slaveholders who of course were by definition racists. They build their edifices of lies very carefully, one element at a time, till it is massive and very compelling to the gullible and poorly educated.
What a good little soldier for the Left Flake is trying to be.
Typical leftist trash. Seems where ever the so called “higher intellectual, caring leftist” go, they leave a destructive mess in their wake. As stated before here, this is not protesting, this is a form of rioting. Guess these morons aren’t so bright. Video cameras are everywhere these days, whether in stores, street monitors or with cell phones. Hope someone in Chicago has the balls to prosecute every one of them to the full extent of the law. Though this would not be the time to use guns, it sure highlights the potential need for them.
Joe diGenova was one of my favorite talking heads during the Clinton scandals of the late 90’s. He has a great piece in Hillsdale College’s Imprimus newsletter this month on the politicization of the FBI.
This is an amazing and powerful article. It connects the dots in a way I don’t think anyone else has.
Wow, really good article. Joe DiGenova connects the dots better than anyone has yet. In light of John Brennan’s tweet directed towards Trump yesterday, which was as follows:
“When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history,” he wrote. “You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but will not destroy America… America will triumph over you.”
The following excerpt from the article kind of makes you wonder who exactly possess’s moral turpitude:
Comey and then-CIA Director John Brennan laundered the Steele Dossier through the U.S. intelligence community to give it an aura of credibility and get it to the press.
The American people know exactly who you are Mr. Brennan, and we will not be kind to you if you continue to lecture us on political corruption. We have had enough, and we DID TRIUMPH over you.
Brennan is of Communist background and so holds that anything his side does is morally correct, anything the other side does is morally wrong. He’s only speaking what he believes to be true – his lies, etc were good lies because they advanced the Progressive cause. It really doesn’t surprise me he made such a statement…the key is to make certain people understand what he’s about. Once it becomes clear that these people are in it for themselves, I think we’ll see the real revolution…the complete destruction of our Ruling Class.
Well, it’s been a while since the whole Clinton email thing became public, and to this day I have yet to hear someone specifically address the idea that the way this has been handled, or rather not-handled, is proof of a belief on the Left that the wealthy, connected and powerful should not be held to the same standards as the rest of us. I think focusing on the Elite aspect of this whole thing would resonate with millions.
Remember, the Left tries to appeal to those who resent the fact that others have more than they do. I think it would do them a lot of harm to point out, repeatedly and relentlessly, that the entire attitude of the Dem leadership has been that, as a member of the wealthy and powerful Ruling Elite she should not be expected to follow the law and should not be punished for breaking it.
Those of us who follow politics know that others have been prosecuted and jailed for far less than her actions, yet the belief on the Left is that she should not be investigated, much less punished. Why? Because of her status. This is a powerful weapon the Right has left on the shelf.
The Left is trying to distract from the crimes by portraying investigations of them as mere bullying, mere abuse of power, etc. And we haven’t yet made a strong, coherent and repeated case for the fact that the Right is only trying to apply the same standards and rules to everyone, no matter how much wealth, power or status the lawbreaker might have.
We have very much failed at that – of course, it doesn’t help that there’s a half dozen or so GOP Senators who can always be relied on to vouch for the character of people like Brennan, Comey and Mueller. To me, it is becoming more and more a requirement that Trump fire Mueller…first off, because his investigation is absurd but, secondly and perhaps more importantly, to make it an issue. Who do you trust? This guy who as let all sorts of powerful people skate while poor slobs are indicted for (allegedly) lying to the FBI – or Trump who has been the victim of such a witch hunt but, unlike most, has the power to fight back?
I think a well crafted plan to fire Mueller while getting ready to go all sorts of evidence of bogus prosecutions and malfeasance would be what our Progressive friends call a “teaching moment”.
Actually, no, most of the American people DON”T know who these people are, or what they did. Some of us know bit and pieces, a few have a better grasp of the whole story, but the Left has controlled the narrative and the media which promote the narrative, and we stand by helpless and nearly mute while they write the history.
I hope, I desperately hope, that someone somewhere is assembling a strong narrative of our own that we can put out there, doing basically what deGenova did, maybe even using his article, to set the story straight.
It’s not just the narrative we are lacking, it is the medium in which to get it out there, So far the only branch of the various media that is likely to carry the correct narrative is radio, while the other media are in the pocket of the Left, meekly taking directions and doing as they are told.
After reading Flake’s comments again I realized that he said exactly what Hillary Clinton said in Mumbai, just expressed slightly differently. They are from the same cloth.
They are all reading from the same script. It’s a long one, but if you pay attention you will see part of it here, part of it there, repeated over and over again by many people. A few words may be changed, there might be a little rephrasing, but the core messages are always the same. That is what makes the Left so successful in its messaging. People hear the same message over and over again, from one person after another, and they never hear a coherent rebuttal.
Let’s lighten things up a little. It’s a gorgeous sunny Sunday, almost—but not quite—a day to get the convertible out. Cleaning out some office files I ran across this and decided to share.
We can all learn from lessons such as this:
Quoting a newly appointed SCOTUS justice: “The Fourteenth Amendment in its majestic sway folds everything into a broad ambit.” I cackled. Maybe it is just me, remembering the wording supporting Roe v Wade which based it on “an emanation of a penumbra” of an unwritten “right to privacy”.
Really interesting. I encourage everyone to watch in its entirety.
As long as I can remember the Left has been skilled at manipulating the meaning of words to manipulate public opinion. Has anyone noticed the increased use of words and rhetoric to “confuse?” Some examples I ran across in a recent article:
— Anyone under 21 is mentally and emotionally incapable of purchasing or owning a weapon.
— High school students should direct our policies on gun control.
— President Donald Trump is a dictator and a tyrant.
— Trump and Congress need to buck the NRA and take away our guns.
— Police are over-militarized and violent and are disproportionally targeting minorities.
— Only police should have guns.
— “Children” should stay on their parents’ health insurance until age 26.
— Pre-teen and teenaged children are capable of choosing their own “gender” and deciding to have an abortion without parental consent.
— Russia is our enemy.
— Russia is backing the NRA and wants more Americans to be armed.
It’s as though some Leftist went back and Orwell’s 1984 and said, “wow — there are some good ideas in there.
