    This weekend, he will continue his crusade on the national stage, restarting the Civil War, reopening old racial wounds, but revealing his political ambition, his only true interest As the Robert E. Lee monument was being removed last Friday, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu gave a victory speech to a select group of supporters at Gallier Hall, ironically, a former slave auction house. In the last week, the speech received lavish praise from the liberal media, both locally and nationally. Landrieu received glowing tributes throughout the mainstream news media, from the pages of the liberal Times Picayune in New Orleans...

    Ignore the Scandals, Resist the Coup The Ford’s Theater Election. May 25, 2017 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam The only one real Trump scandal is the refusal of the left to recognize his victory. It is okay to be bitter, angry and frustrated about losing an election. It’s not illegal to begin planning how to win the next election. But it is illegal for public officials to refuse to accept the results of that election. It’s illegal for them to take part in a...

    If you were to ask most people about the origins of communism, they’d likely point to Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, authors of “The Communist Manifesto.” If you asked a Marxist, however, they’d likely point to François-Noël “Gracchus” Babeuf, who is regarded as the first revolutionary communist. And if Babeuf could still speak today and was asked about the origins of his belief, he’d likely reply that, well, it’s complicated. On July 28, 1794, French politician Maximilien Robespierre was beheaded in front of a crowd by guillotine, bringing an end to the dictatorship of the Jacobin Club, a revolutionary political...

    A presidency in exile is not as good as the real thing, but Mr. Obama and the Democrats clearly think they are the real thing. Donald Trump is merely the interloper, and once he and his administration are destroyed, the Restoration will be at hand.

    1917: U.S. Army Gen. John Joseph “Black Jack” Pershing is named commander-in-chief of the American Expeditionary Force, which is destined for European combat the following year. 1942: The Northrop P-61 “Black Widow” night fighter makes its first flight. The twin-boom P-61 is the first aircraft to carry radar and the U.S. military’s first night fighter. The warplane saw service in both the Atlantic and Pacific Theaters, and is widely believed to be credited with the last “kill” of an enemy aircraft in World War II, when a Japanese “Tojo” fighter pilot flies into the water while attempting to evade a...

    Hey everyone! A follow up to my announcement earlier this week. My book is available today on Amazon. If you like quirky, satirical, historical fiction with a bit of a western flavor, it'll make great beach reading this weekend and for the summer. I think you'll find it timely, too, as it's an allegorical tale about fake news and the gullibility of some folks to drink it up. If you want to take a look, check the link out.

    US Defense Watch ^ | May 25, 2017 | Ray Starmann
    Memorial Day is fast upon us. To most Americans, it’s nothing more than a three day weekend bonanza of barbecues, beer, boating and the beach. Only seven percent of living Americans have ever served in the military and the other 93 percent seem to frolic and swig and eat on Memorial Day with very little regard for those who have given all that mortality can give. As Hack, the late Colonel David Hackworth once told me, ‘they’ll never understand; only we understand and we have the responsibility to remember them…forever.’ On this coming Memorial Day, let us pause and remember...

    From 1763-1776, many Americans felt the mounting force and expanding intrusion of a Deep State and their anger grew. It happened in 1776 – America’s first revolution against a Deep State. President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to “Drain the Swamp,” if fulfilled, will bring a second revolution against a Deep State. The first Deep State in America was foreign born in 18th Century England. It impacted the Colonies through the Crown’s operatives and emissaries, some American born – some British.

      talkRADIO host Julia Hartley-Brewer, interviewing Strange Death of Europe author, Douglas Murray, replies to his advice, "Slow the Flow", 'You can't stop the migrants from coming'. Tell that to Donald Trump. Border crossings down 70%. FDR is the leftist-progressives' George Washington, godfather of the administrative entitlement state. He and Churchill, who had some breathing room from the Nazi menace, never gave a single thought to relocating to Britain or North America, the highly educated, highly entrepreneurial Jews of Europe. Universally reviled J Edgar Hoover, however, opposed the internment of Japanese-Americans, who were loyal to a fault.

    The Constitution was written with the intent that it must endure for ages to come and be adaptable to the various crises of human affairs. Edmund Randolph, one of the five men charged with drafting the document, observed that it was necessary to stick to basic, “essential principles only; lest the operations of government be clogged by rendering those provisions permanent and unalterable.” The Framers knew that principles of liberty remain constant throughout time, so they provided this foundation for altering future law. Let’s continue our study of the U.S. Constitution with Article I. Article I, Sec 1 basically set...
  • Liberal Newsletter rages against Margaret Thatcher

    While in Bangor Maine last week I saw the liberal fruit loops downtown handout fliers and protest  against Trump. They were gathered near the bus terminal at the parking garage, beating drums, chanting F donald Trump and so on,  There was  also a table handing out pamplets and leaflets. They were mostly the same, raging against trump, global warming deniers, capitalism ETC. But one that really caught my attention was a single pamphlet they had about Margaret Thatcher. Some of what I read was pretty crazy and yet not so surprising. Essentially they claimed that Britain was the aggressor in...

    1818: Gen. (future U.S. pres.) Andrew Jackson and his expeditionary army march into Spanish-controlled Florida, easily capturing the Gulf-coastal town of Pensacola. Col. José Masot, the Spanish governor, retreats to nearby Fort San Carlos de Barrancas (originally built by the British as “the Royal Navy Redoubt”) where he briefly puts up a token resistance – to save face – before hoisting the white flag there, too. 1861: Less than 24 hours after Virginia secedes from the Union, a regiment of Zouave infantry consisting of volunteer fire fighters from New York City land at Alexandria and occupy the town. The regiment’s...

Officers like Colonel Bill Newman, Major Geoffrey Lockett and Major Bob Slade, under Glubb Pasha, better known as General John Bagot Glubb, whose son later converted to Islam, invaded Jerusalem and used the Muslim forces under their command to make the partition and ethnic cleansing of Jerusalem...

    It is the “state of the city’, not the “look” of the city that needs a good mayor’s attention. Landrieu is obviously too engrossed in his liberal subjectivism to garner this simple, but profound truth With a long heritage of Spanish, French and other influences New Orleans has a unique place in the history of the nation. With streets named Tchoupitoulas, Melpomene and Terpsichore, foods like the Po-Boy, muffulettas and café – ole and beignet’s, who would doubt that you are in an unusual city when you set foot in the famed - “Crescent City” On May 19, 2017 Mayor...

    Trump in Israel An education in Islamic terror. May 23, 2017 Daniel Greenfield When President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu met on the tarmac, they and their spouses chatted easily. The two conservative leaders have much in common. They are political insurgents who draw their support from a rougher working class overlooked and despised by leftist elites. The polls said that Netanyahu and Trump would lose their respective elections. Instead they won big. They prevailed despite accusations of bigotry, attacks by celebrities and a torrent of fake media scandals. The media decided that the big story of Trump’s arrival in...

    Sunday, May 21, 2017 The Dem Savior With "Kennedyish" Features Posted by Daniel Greenfield The Democrats are in trouble. And the list of party saviors is as broad as it is laughable. There’s Bernie Sanders, who denies that he’s a Democrat, Elizabeth Warren, who might not even survive reelection in her own state, Keith Ellison, an Islamist who keeps lying about his past with Farrakhan, Howard Dean, currently denying the existence of the First Amendment, and Maxine Waters. You know you’re in trouble when your party is being represented on cable news by Maxine Waters. Desperate lefties had tried to...
