FROM THE BEST TO THE WORST IN ONE GENERATION Print E-mail

103 years ago on this day, February 6, 2014, Ronald Reagan was born.

I wish I had the capacity to describe adequately what it was like being in Ronald Reagan's presence. I have met many extraordinary people in my life, from Hollywood's most famous stars to presidents of countries.  But Ronald Reagan had a magic that was unique to him alone.

There was a depth of character to his charisma that seemed bottomless. There was a solidity of integrity and humanity behind the dazzling charm that was matchless. You loved Ronald Reagan for his ideals and his complete fearlessness in advocating them - and you loved Ronald Reagan for the man, the human being, he was.

On March 30, 1961, as a spokesman for General Electric and well before he entered politics, he gave a speech to the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, which he entitled "Encroaching Control."  In it, he delivered one of his most famous quotes:

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. The only way they can inherit the freedom we have known is if we fight for it, protect it, defend it and then hand it to them with the well thought lessons of how they in their lifetime must do the same. And if you and I don't do this, then you and I may well spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it once was like in America when men were free.

It is one thing to read these words.  It is another to listen to him actually say them:



The power of his voice makes you cry, doesn't it?  Because his words have so devastatingly come true.

CELEBRATING LIFE ON THE DAY OF DEATH Print E-mail

This has got to be the best picture from yesterday's March for Life.  It was truly an extraordinary event - hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers marching from the White House to the Supreme Court in bitterly below-freezing cold, and doing so in good cheer.

Actually, the event in Washington DC was only one of many Marches for Life that took place in cities all over the country on the 41st anniversary of the Supreme Court's most hideous - and ludicrously unconstitutional - decisions, Roe v. Wade, on January 22, 1973.

It's pretty easy to understand - inhuman not to, in fact - why people would be passionately anti-abortion, and be morally revolted by a mother killing her own child. 

The obverse is more difficult.  While it may be understandable that under certain circumstances of a woman's life, she could feel that terminating her pregnancy was her only solution, what is unfathomable is the hysterical, fanatical frenzy of passion that consumes pro-abortionists. 

It's clinically pathological.   It's one of the clearest markers that folks on the Left aren't just mistaken, they're deranged.  What were the villains of the Harry Potter novels called?  Death-eaters.  That's them.  The good news is that an increasing majority of Americans looks upon them as such.  Even better news is that the reason this number is increasing is because it's composed of Millennials - young folks 30 and under.

CALIFORNIA IN EUROPE Print E-mail

Thursday, 16 January 2014

We'll have to deal with the deluge of dictatorship Zero and his minions are inflicting upon us in the HFR tomorrow.  Today, we have to take a break and get outta this place.  How about to one of the world's most pleasant places, Europe's California?

Especially since we're going to have a TTP Retreat there in March.  More about that later.

Both my wife, Rebel, and I grew up in California, so we know it when we see it - and we recognized it right away in Portugal.  The weather, the plants, the ocean, the sunsets in the ocean, the coast - which is more beautiful than Italy's (okay, except for Amalfi), way more friendly than France's (surprise), and far less known and populated than Spain's.

Then of course, there's the great wine and great food.

Also of course, there are differences.  California, as anyone who grew up there knows, no longer exists - it is Mexifornia, as Victor Davis Hansen terms it, with a Hispanic vise-grip on the government in Sacramento welcoming an illegal alien flood.  The European corollary is Eurabia - the flood of Moslems demographically destroying so many countries like France, where half the schoolchildren in many major cities today are Moslem.

But not in Portugal.  The Moslem population is miniscule.  Make that invisible.  You never see a mosque, you never see a woman in a burka.  The Portuguese are Christian Europeans.  They kicked Moslem invaders from Africa out of their country 764 years ago (in 1249) and are happy to keep it that way.

California's history is as recent as Portugal's is ancient.  People have been living there before they were people.

WHY THE LEFT IS RACIST AND FASCIST Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 09 January 2014

These are the two most common accusations the Left hurls at the Right.  It's what psychologists call "projection" - accusing others what you are guilty of.  Let's take them one at a time, then see how they are connected.

To understand how the Left is racist, we'll do a thought experiment by asking: What if Obama were white?

Let's suppose that his bio is exactly the same, except that his Kenyan father was white.  Kenya, of course, was created by white British colonialists at the end of the 19th century as the British East Africa Protectorate, and renamed the Crown Colony of Kenya in 1920. 

So - flaming Marxist anti-Western Civilization self-hating white guy, community organizer who never had a real job, professional Alinskyite agitator turned professional politician with absolutely no business or executive experience whatever, freshman Senator with no legislative accomplishments whatever, no real intelligence, just a pathological narcissist with a shrewd manipulative cunning behind a glib voice and flashy smile. 

Would anyone in the Democrat Party, the Enemedia, the Moonbat blogosphere, Academia, or the public at large have paid any attention to this white guy's running for president - much less clamored for him to do so or swooned when he did?

Of course not.  The only, single, solitary reason anyone paid any attention to Obama is that he's black.  His candidacy, his election, his presidency is entirely racist.  America has a Racist Presidency because he wouldn't be president if he were another white guy, albeit with exactly the same bio.

THE REVOLUTION OF 2014 Print E-mail

This could be what I call a "FS Year" - like Sinatra sings in It Was A Very Good Year, 2014 could "pour sweet and clear" for freedom in America, if only we take advantage of the opportunity history is handing us.

Pick your metaphor or adage.  The setup for a political "perfect storm," an epic "correlation of forces," an ideal example of "the greater the danger, the greater the opportunity" is here before us. 

We have a chance at victory on not just one, but on both of our country's most important battlefields.  The stakes couldn't be higher.  Which means if we blow it this year, surmounting 2016 will be as hard as climbing Everest without oxygen.
