Trump Gives Afghanistan What it Needs: True Leadership

Leftists are Acting Like Stalin in attempt at “Erasing History”

BY ONAN COCA

Dershowitz went for the far-left’s throat in a recent interview on Fox News.

While Dershowitz has no problem with removing some of the Confederate monuments and memorials that dot our nation’s landscape, he definitely has a problem with the way that the leftists are going about doing so.

In the left’s assault on Southern heritage and history he sees shades of something much darker than just an attempt at healing racial divisions in our nation.

The far-left’s assault on everything Confederacy reminds Dershowitz of Stalin’s ugly assault on history and his attempt to re-write the past in an effort to suit his nefarious purposes. This is exactly what Dershowitz sees today’s radical left doing in our nation. It’s not about soothing tensions, it’s about exerting power and influencing a new front of the culture wars.

Instead, Dershowitz argues that the left should be using the opportunity to educate the next generation and to build bridges instead of fostering divisions in our nation.

Of course there’s a danger of going too far.

There’s a danger removing Washington and Jefferson and other of our founding fathers who themselves owned slaves.

Look, we have to use this as an educational moment.

We have to take some of the statues that were put up more recently, for example, during the Civil Rights Movement and perhaps move them to museums where they can be used to teach young students about how statues are intended sometimes for bad purposes, to glorify negatives and to hold back positive developments.

But the idea of willy-nilly going through and doing what Stalin did: just erasing history and re-writing it to serve current purposes, does pose a danger, and it poses a danger of educational malpractice, of missing opportunities to educate people, and of going too far.

AMERICAN POLITICS ENTERS THE BRONZE AGE

 

By John F. Di Leo – 

The top marginal federal income tax rate in the United States – for businesses and for people who file as businesses – is 39.6%.

As a result, businesses do not grow as they should.  Businesses do not thrive as they should.  Businesses do not produce, or invent, or add on, or hire, as they would if their tax burden were lower.

International corporations therefore find that they must do more and more of their manufacturing abroad, where their profits are not so severely penalized.  And domestic corporations do not prosper… and would-be entrepreneurs do not start-up new enterprises here, because in the United States, today, success itself is penalized.

And people are protesting … the presence of statues in public parks.

The United States had the greatest health care system on earth until seven years ago.  Virtually every American citizen either received decent insurance from his employer, or bought decent insurance on his own, or received decent insurance from the company he retired from… or received decent coverage from Medicare.

There were shortcomings; VA coverage was often poor for our veterans, and the poor often got poor coverage through Medicaid, but these matters could have been focused upon, and improved…

…until a radical presidency illegally forced a particularly incompetent version of socialized medicine – and yes, that takes some doing – upon the country.   Today, the healthcare funding system is a monstrosity, because the Obama administration’s approach has impoverished millions, with expensive but useless mandatory plans.

And people are protesting … the presence of statues in public parks.

The nation is suffering a crime wave.  Gangs continue to take over our major cities, because even as police risk their lives to catch and prosecute the drug dealers, gang leaders, and pimps who rule the streets, the criminal justice system is so skewed in favor of the criminal that we let them go… or we plea-bargain them down to charges that don’t carry jail time, so we put even the convicted ones back on the street anyway.

Besides, no matter how many criminals we do manage to put behind bars, decades of porous borders have allowed a rapid replenishment system. For every gang member we take out of commission, another one arrives from their home base, south of the border, to take his place.  MS-13, Sinaloa, the Gulf Cartel… so many criminal organizations from all over the world have directed their operatives to our big cities, and the suicidal Sanctuary City provisions of those cities act like magnets to draw them in, turning our cities into banana republics.

And people are protesting … the presence of statues in public parks.

Cities, counties and states raise their tax burdens, in income taxes, beverage taxes, sales taxes, property taxes, gas taxes… and these increased taxes have the exact result that every economist has always said they would have:

They drive down property values, depress economic activity, leave people with less discretionary income.  This hurts every business that taxpayers would normally frequent – the mall, the restaurant, the theater, the nightclub, the bookstore.

If you have less to spend, you spend less, it’s as simple as that.  So, every business suffers.

And when businesses suffer, employment suffers.

The cashiers, baggers, stockboys, waiters, cooks – everyone who works in any kind of retail environment, or the wholesale industries that support them,  will see his hours get cut.

Did the levels of government that hiked these taxes intend to drive their constituents out of work?  Did they intend to be destructive to the lives of their neighbors?  Perhaps not.  but the effect is the same, regardless of the intent:  people lose their jobs, people lose their businesses; neighborhoods wither and die, commercial districts no more.

And people are protesting … the presence of statues in public parks.

Now, is this to say that there’s nothing to protest about them, at all?

Not necessarily. These big bronze statues in public parks may represent slaveowners, merchants, politicians,  generals… the Civil War figures commemorated in this manner do raise questions.  Should these statues be brought indoors and displayed in a Civil War museum – rather than left outdoors as if all and sundry shared their respect for the Confederate side in the late unpleasantness?   Good questions, valid questions, worthy of debate and decision, in a rational manner…

But the crowds have gone beyond the Civil War, muddying that reasonable argument, haven’t they?

Within days of Charlottesville, the agitators were calling for the removal of statues that pre-date the Civil War, even our nation’s greatest heroes.  We have seen calls for the removal of statues of Founding Fathers like Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, and of our first president, George Washington, the marvelous leader who united the nation to rise up against England.

Yes, many of our Founders inherited plantations in the age of slavery, but many had such other incredibly redeeming qualities that we cannot judge them entirely on the fact that they happened to live in a time and place that included this particular flaw.

So random has this violence become, just days after the August conflicts in Charlottesville, VA, the city of Chicago even saw a statue of Abraham Lincoln torched.  How?  And why?  What crazed mind could possibly apply a moral equivalence to both the Confederacy and the man who stood against them and vowed that the United States would be one single country again, reborn free of the practice of plantation slavery?

There is no logic in it, because logic was never intended to apply in the first place.

This whole popular crisis is a distraction, concocted by the deep pockets of the Left.  George Soros’ unlimited bank account funds the CraigsList ads that bring rent-a-protester armies by the busload from states away, ready-made clubs and posters in hand.

Permits or not, sensible reason or not, the goal of MoveOn, Antifa, Occupy and the rest is really to dominate the headlines, to pull our nation’s legitimate issues off the front page so that they get no traction in the Capital.

How can politicians focus the country on the tax cuts we so desperately need, for example – issues that require a bit of explanation to win support – if every time a politician opens his mouth, the press shouts the question “And where do YOU stand on the removal of statues?”

We have so much to do, from tax cuts to an obamacare repeal, from a crackdown on illegal aliens to a renewed war on the drugs that infest our big cities, our small towns, and everything in between.

But we cannot do it – we cannot build a national argument for such improvements – as long as the public is preoccupied with hundred year old statues of two hundred year old men.

And that is the true crisis:  not the question of what to do about statues, but the question of how to put an end to that distraction, and focus the country on the things that we know really matter to our nation’s future.

Frankly, the only thing in the news today that really merits a wrecking ball is the whole corrupt distraction itself.

A New Conservative TV Network Being Worked On To Compete With Fox….And By Guess Who??

Axios’ Jonathan Swan hears that there are plans afoot for a new ‘right of Fox News’ news network being considered.

Unshaven and working from home in cargo shorts as he moves into “Bannon the Barbarian” mode, Steve Bannon is thinking bigger than Breitbart.

Axios reports,

Axios’ Jonathan Swan hears Bannon has told friends he sees a massive opening to the right of Fox News, raising the possibility that he’s going to start a network.

  • Bannon’s friends are speculating about whether it will be a standalone TV network, or online streaming only.
  • Before his death in May, Roger Ailes had sent word to Bannon that he wanted to start a channel together. Bannon loved the idea: He believes Fox is heading in a squishy, globalist direction as the Murdoch sons assume more power.
  • Now he has the means, motive and opportunity: His chief financial backer, Long Island hedge fund billionaire Bob Mercer, is ready to invest big in what’s coming next, including a huge overseas expansion of Breitbart News.

On Day 1, Bannon declared he’s taking his West Wing infighting to the outside, telling Bloomberg Businessweek’sJosh Green that he’s “going to war for Trump against his opponents — on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America.”

  • The reality is that Bannon will go nuclear on former colleagues he calls “West Wing Democrats”: economic adviser Gary Cohn, Jared and Ivanka (“Javanka,” as he calls them) and Deputy National Security Adviser Dina Powell.
  • The revved-up Breitbart operation is also likely to target Speaker Ryan, as it did before Trump.
  • Why it matters: The country’s national political conversation is about to get even uglier, if you can imagine. It’s going to be dark, and toxic, with a fight on the right that may be more bitter and personal than hostilities between Republicans and Democrats.
    • Bannon signaled his subtle approach in a for-the-ages Weekly Standard interview: “The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over … I feel jacked up … Now I’m free. I’ve got my hands back on my weapons. … I am definitely going to crush the opposition. There’s no doubt. I built a f***ing machine at Breitbart. And now … we’re about to rev that machine up.”
    • His restoration as executive chairman of Breitbart News was announced less than five hours after the White House confirmed his “mutually agreed” departure as chief strategist. (Translation: He was told he wasn’t long for the West Wing.)
    • Bannon made a “conqueror’s return” to a Breitbart editorial conference call last night, and laid out the battle ahead for the staff.
    • Josh Green — author of “Devil’s Bargain,” the book that helped get Bannon fired because Trump hates sharing the spotlight — tweeted: “Bannon sounded like he’d just consumed 40 Red Bulls … At least [he] didn’t say he’s leaving to spend more time with his family.”

    Around the corner: Expect Bannon to use Breitbart to engage aggressively in September’s policy fights. Watch for Bannon to pressure Trump to veto any government funding bill that doesn’t include money to fund the building of that big, beautiful wall he promised along the southern border with Mexico.

The George Soros Paid Antifa Terrorists Blocked Another Road – Get A Brutal Lesson On What A Toyota 4 Runner Tastes Like

And once again we have another weekend of George Soros sponsored anti-Trump shenanigans by the Democrat Party terror group known as ANTIFA!

But this time an SUV driver in Boston wasn’t about to have any of it. So the law-abiding American citizen did what any of us would do when surrounded by a gang of thugs wanting to cause him and his vehicle harm. So when the Antifa thug gave him the order to “Stay right there” he stepped on the accelerator and ran their communist behinds over. Score one for the rule of law!

After two people were hurt because of the SUV another member of the terror group surrounded the vehicle and was about to drag the citizen out of the car and do who knows what to him, but luckily police officials were able to get there first and come to the rescue of the driver. Glad to see the mayor of Boston didn’t order the police to stand down, like the mayor of San Jose did when the gang of illegal aliens attacked Trump supporters after the rally he had there.

Of course in the video, you can hear the terrorist Antifa members cursing up a storm in disbelief that the police would actually side against them. I guess they aren’t too accustomed to the idea of not getting their way, after all, I’m sure they have gotten their way since birth from the parents who gave them everything and who now own the basement they dwell in.

Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children Reports:

ANTIFA VIOLENCE AT BOSTON RALLY? TEARING DOWN THE CONSTITUTION

With mainstream media endorsing the actions of Antifa at Charlottesville, it’s no wonder that now Antifa violence is going to become “normal” in order to “combat hate.” The concerted efforts of left-wing groups to foment violence in the name of “peace and tolerance” has become flat out insane. Our Constitution is being torn down by anarchists.

A “Free Speech” rally in Boston on August 19 is set to become yet another mess. Rally organizers have been granted a legal permit to march, not that Antifa will care about “legal.”

Who will screw that up first?

Note on this flyer that supporting police with the thin blue line flag is considered “fascist.” Any InfoWars reporters will be considered fascist and open to attack. So much for the US Constitution and any “Free Speech.” The First Amendment is now equated with Nazis and racists.

No such thing as utopia

Here we have a pledge to purge the earth of whites and the children of whites. And by the way, they don’t really believe that line about “after the purge, we will live in a worker’s paradise free from racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and oppression.”

First off, none of them “work” so having a “worker’s paradise” would be laughable if these weren’t such vicious people. And the only “oppression” is the kind they are creating. There is no such thing as a worker’s paradise – ask the common man in China, North Korea, and Cuba. It is impossible. There is no Utopia.

Targets by design

Never forget that these are paid anarchists, paid protesters, all designed to destroy the Trump presidency and tear down the fabric of the United States.

Boston planned 8 “anti-hate” rallies and vigils leading up to the “Free Speech” rally on Saturday according to Boston.com. Boston Magazine printed an article that was titled “How to protest the free speech rally,” which advises people not to bring weapons, and to be civil. It appears from the flyers that Antifa has no desire to be “civil.”

A Facebook page has been setup to protest the “White Nationalists” that are coming to Boston. Have you noticed that advocating free speech is now automatically labelled as ‘White Nationalism?’ And that the whites are automatically there to “intimidate” people?

“On Saturday, August 19th, White Nationalists are converging on Boston Common to reinforce their white supremacist ideology and attempt to intimidate queer and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, POC) communities.

As we have seen with the events in Charlottesville and around the country, white nationalists are emboldened by the current political administration and growing police state. Rallies and marches organized by white supremacists are more prevalent than in recent years, and—as always—it is the most marginalized who are left vulnerable.” Counter Protest Facebook page

Remember this from Saul Alinsky, one of Hillary’s mentors:

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.” Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals.

These terrorists better be very careful. The American Public is a peaceful bunch. They don’t put up with lawlessness like this for long, and they are already growing very weary of constantly seeing scenes like this every time they watch the evening news. The late 60s were also tumultuous times, but in those days the Democrat Party wasn’t the one who was fanning the flames and instigating the violence because they lost an election!

THE REAL RACE WAR

BY DAVID HOROWITZ

The tragedy in Charlottesville could have been an occasion to stop and consider how the tolerance for politically correct violence and politically correct hatred is leading the nation towards civil war. Instead the media and the political left have turned this incident into the biggest fake news story of the summer, transforming its real lessons into a morality play that justifies war against the political right, and against white people generally.

The organizers of the “Unite the Right” demonstration in Charlottesville were repellent racists. But they came to defend a historic monument honoring a complex man and cause, and not to attack it or presumably anyone else. They applied for a permit and were denied. They re-applied successfully in a petition supported by the local ACLU. If they had come to precipitate violence, why would they have gone to the tedious trouble of applying for a permit? Who knows what – if anything – would have happened if that had been the end of the story and no one had showed up to oppose them.

What “Unite the Right” actually demonstrated was that the assortment of neo-Nazis, pro-Confederates and assorted yahoos gathered under the banner of the “Alt-Right” is actually a negligible group. This was a national show of strength that actually attracted only a few hundred people. Compare that to the tens of the thousands who can readily be marshalled by two violent groups of the left – Black Lives Matter and Antifa – and you get an idea of how marginal “white supremacists” are to America’s political and cultural life.

Yet “white supremacy” and its evils became the centerpiece of all the fake news reporting on the event, including all the ludicrous attacks on the president for not condemning enough a bogeyman the whole nation condemns, and that no one but a risible fringe supports. Talk about virtue signaling! Omitted from the media coverage were the other forces at work in precipitating the battle of Emancipation Park, specifically Black Lives Matter and Antifa, two violent leftwing groups with racial agendas who came to squelch the demonstration in defense of the monument.

Unlike the Unite the Right demonstrators, the leftist groups did not have a permit for Emancipation Park (they had permits for two nearby parks). But why should they need a permit, since the havoc they had previously wreaked in Ferguson, Berkeley, Sacramento, Portland and other cities, was accomplished without permits, while their criminality was presented by the media as “protests,” and their rioting went completely unpunished.

In short, there were two demonstrations in Charlottesville – a legal protest by “Unite the Right” and one protest by the vigilantes of Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Who started the fight is really immaterial. Both sides were prepared for violence because these conflicts are already a pattern of our deteriorating civic life. Once the two sides had gathered in the same place, the violence was totally predictable. Two parties, two culpabilities; but except for the initial statement of President Trump, condemning both sides, only one party has been held accountable, and that happens to be the one that was in the park legally.

What is taking place in the media accounts and political commentaries on this event is an effort by the left to turn the mayhem in Charlottesville into a template for their war against a mythical enemy – “white supremacy” – which is really a war on white people generally. The ideology that drives the left and divides our country is “identity politics” – the idea that the world consists of two groups – “people of color” who are guiltless and oppressed, and white people who are guilty and oppressors. This is the real race war. Its noxious themes inform the mindless, hysterical hatred for President Trump, and the equally mindless support for racist mobs like Black Lives Matter and Antifa. It is a war from which no good can come. But it won’t be stopped unless enough people have the courage to stand up and name it for what it is.

Starbucks CEO Just Took Sick Stand Against White Customers – Put Final Nail In His Franchise

Starbucks CEO, Howard Schultz continued his assault against the majority of Americans. Following the Charlottesville protests, Schultz said, “I know we’re better than this. The bigotry, hatred and senseless violence against people who are not white cannot stand.”

Howard Schultz is a disgrace. He recently came under fire for saying he was going to hire thousands of Muslim refugees over Americans/Veterans. He continues to side with the violent leftists by refusing to condemn Antifa, Black Lives Matter and Islamic terrorists.

From The Gateway Pundit

According to Schultz, only the white supremacists were violent, bigoted and hateful. Shocker.

 

People were outraged over Schultz’s comment and called for more boycotts of Starbucks. Many accused Schultz of being bigoted and full of hate

 

This may have been the one time that conservatives were hoping that President Trump would actually lash out and smack Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) down. Instead, this is the one time that President Trump actually responded in a “politically” correct manner. Which is not a good thing for the GOP or the nation. On Tuesday evening McConnell could be heard whining about the amount of pressure that President Trump was putting on the GOP leadership in their efforts to repeal Obamacare. Here’s what ABC reported about McConnell’s comments: Speaking at a Rotary Club gathering in Kentucky on Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vented about how President Donald Trump‘s lack of political experience has led to him setting “excessive expectations” for legislative priorities. McConnell, R-Ky., told the group in Florence that he found it “extremely irritating” that Congress has earned the reputation of not accomplishing anything. “Part of the reason I think that the storyline is that we haven’t done much is because, in part, the president and others have set these early timelines about things need to be done by a certain point,” said McConnell, a Republican and the state’s senior senator… “Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before. And I think he had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process,” McConnell told the group. “So part of the reason I think people feel we’re underperforming is because too many artificial deadlines — unrelated to the reality of the complexity of legislating — may not have been fully understood.” President Trump’s chief defender on Fox News, Sean Hannity, had a terse response for McConnell’s complaints. Sadly, President Trump didn’t feel the need to attack McConnell for his comments. Instead, the President decided to give McConnell an unnecessary show of support. In a decision that I believe the President will come to regret, Trump finally decided to endorse a candidate in the Alabama Republican Senate primary. There has been an ongoing battle brewing in Alabama between the Establishment (led by McConnell) and conservatives. The Establishment wants Luther Strange to be the next Senator from Alabama, while conservatives would rather Judge Roy Moore (or Rep. Mo Brooks). Moore has a wide lead over Strange who is barely ahead of Brooks in the most recent polls… but all of this math may be about to change. Why? Because President Trump has stepped in and done McConnell and the establishment a favor by endorsing Luther Strange. The Conservative Review is not impressed with this endorsement: Let’s put aside the fact that Luther Strange has been embraced by every lobbyist, special interest cartel, Mitch McConnell, and Karl Rove. This man has already been in office for six months and has quietly gone along with every last morsel of McConnell’s agenda. When Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz were fighting to repeal Obamacare, Strange was never anywhere close to the fight. Indeed, he’s been in the witness protection program on every issue. Which is just the way McConnell likes it. This is a major misstep by President Trump. Luther Strange is an establishment tool, but Judge Moore would be a strong ally of the President in Congress. By endorsing Strange the President is tacitly giving his endorsement of McConnell’s failed leadership and he is helping the D.C. Swamp survive. Please Mr. President, reverse your decision to endorse Strange and call for new blood in the Senate.

The food stamp rolls have reduced by 1.1 million individuals since Donald Trump took office in January, a new report from the United States Department of Agriculture revealed this week.

The number of those on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program dropped to 41,496,255 in May of 2017, compared to 42,691,363 at the beginning of the year — a 2.79 percent drop

According to Breitbart, that’s the lowest level in food stamp usage since 2010.

Abuse of the food stamp program has been one of the targets of the Trump administration thus far. According to Politico, the president’s budget “asks Congress to slash food stamp spending in fiscal year 2018 by more than a quarter” and to get states to step up their share of spending for the program.

“A small part of those savings would come from tightening work requirements for able-bodied individuals, but the vast majority of the proposed sum would come from making states match 20 percent of the federal SNAP outlay,” Politico reported.

“The documents released by (the Office of Management and Budget) didn’t provide details on where all the cuts would be generated. But a lengthy table included among the newly released budget docs proposes raising $2.3 billion in SNAP retailer fees over the next decade to help defray costs of the program.”

While liberals may rage about these changes, the fact is that the Trump administration is putting Obama to shame. This is one of the most abused programs in the federal pantheon, and food stamp leeches are something that Washington should have done something about long, long ago. Trump’s administration is coming through, and conservatives deserve to be thrilled.

Mitch McConnell Betrays Trump, Trump Responds by Helping McConnell
