Dr. Jack Wheeler
I am in such a state of awe over this week that I’m left with only one question – where’s this guy’s wheelbarrow?
From his “Drive Them Out!” speech in Riyadh on Sunday (5/21) to the leaders of every Moslem country on the planet, to his being the first sitting US President in history to pray at the Western Wall and have Israel fall in love with him (5/22-23), to his scolding yesterday in Brussels (5/25) the leader of every NATO country right to their faces for expecting America to pay for their defense – our president has a pair big enough for a wheelbarrow.
The contrast between this mensch and his schmuck predecessor could not be more stark. We have at last a real man and a real American with no apologies for being either as President of the United States. His predecessor was the opposite of both.
Nonetheless, while Trump was making America great again to the world’s leaders, the “breakout star” of the presidential excursion was Melania. This is the week that the world fell in love with Melania Trump.
This week could be seeing the unraveling of the entire Fake News agenda. As their Russia-Trump Collusion Myth evaporates with no evidence whatever to support it, real Obama and Clinton crimes are now appearing. And n addition to all this, in the last few days we’ve finally seen the Seth Rich murder scandal gain traction.
Every libtard, DemFascist, Fake News pundit, and Capitol Hill RINO is in a total frenzy of fear and rage over the Monday (5/22) release of Trump’s fabulous FY2018 budget that cuts $1.7 trillion in entitlements. There’s other fun news too. Here we go…
See for yourself – the full video and text are appended below. I could not possibly encourage you more to watch and read it attentively. But first, consider the context.
His audience was not simply Saudi royals starting with King Salman, but the leaders of every Moslem-majority country in the world, 54 in all. And in this place to this audience, he was the absolute antithesis of an apologetic appeaser like Obama.
Trump spoke to them politely and graciously, with every diplomatic courtesy and nicety that protocol calls for. But he spoke to them as a man, stand up and straight from the shoulder, not some metrosexual favor-currying pansy like Zero.
He spoke to them as The President of the United States and proud of it – but without a hint of bullying or threat. He spoke to them with complete respect for himself and his country – and with respect for them as well without any hint of gratuitous condescension.
This is a speech of pure presidential genius that only Ronald Reagan could have matched. And yet, although it was delivered in a Moslem country to an audience of Moslem leaders, I took it personally – that Trump’s speech had a message for me as an American, a message for all those who love America.
It brings to mind the old question of whether a witch doctor actually believes in the delusions he’s dispensing to his primitive devotees, or is he aware of his being a voodoo con man?
If the former, then the witch doctors at TIME, the Slimes, WaPo, ABC-CBS-CNN-NBC-AP are becoming literally and clinically deranged with psychotic hate for the President of the United States.
If the latter, then they should be regarded with disgust as AINOs – Americans In Name Only – who either just don’t care about the incalculable damage their delusions will cause to their country, or maliciously want to cause the damage.
Whichever of these options is the case, you and I and all patriots have only one option. Although Jack Kelly this morning (5/19) and I yesterday (5/18) stated it, that option was made most brilliantly clear by Newt Gingrich last evening…
It’s a full HFR this week, with in-depth analysis of what’s really going on, a quartet of fun good news, and a HFR Hero of the Week that may be a real surprise the recipient. Buckle your seat belts, we’re off…
From the day of his electoral victory over Hillary Clinton last November, the FNM has waged flat-out relentless war upon him. Since last week, their war has escalated into flat-out mental derangement.
On Sunday (5/14), Carl Bernstein declared it was “appropriate” to question Trump’s mental stability and fitness for being president.
No, Carl, what’s appropriate is for Americans to question the media’s mental stability and fitness for being journalists.
Let’s cut to the chase. The bloodlust derangement of the Fake News Media and their traitorous Deep State sources is going to get worse until it is stopped with a sledgehammer.
The only way Trump can win the Fake News War waged against him is to go on the offense. That should include:
If you enter “Democrat hypocrisy Comey” into the YouTube search box, you’ll get dozens of compilations like this. If you Google those same three words, you’ll get over 800,000 hits.
I hope you’re having as much fun as the HFR is watching Democrats and their Fake News Media echo chamber in total purple-faced apoplexy over Trump firing Mr. “You’re stuck with me for the next six years” Comey.
Truth is not only stranger than fiction, it’s also funnier – utterly hilarious. So let’s all enjoy the Dumbocrat meltdown – and then ask, just what is causing it. There are at least three causes…
Trump’s courage and leadership seems to be providing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell with some backbone… The White House made two good Drain the Swamp moves this week… Speaking of Draining the Swamp -- it’s almost impossible to say how stupidly corrupt this Fake News from the Right is… The Global bad news: the world suddenly got worse this week.
And there’s the inspiring Heroes of the Week. Here we go!
There are, in fact, four such hidden countries in Europe – states with their own governments exercising sovereign control over the area within their borders, yet whose existence is ignored and unrecognized by the UN and almost every other country in the world.
Each of the Countries That Don’t Exist are uniquely fascinating – with their own history, culture, beauty, and charm. All are mysterious and unknown to the outside world.
The number of Americans who have ever heard of these countries is tiny – the number who have actually been to any one of them far tinier. Almost no one, American or anyone else, has been to all four. Would you like to come with me to all four at once? You’ll be astounded by what you’ll see, experience and learn if you do.
Why are these people smiling? The House Pubs surrounded the President and Vice-President yesterday afternoon (5/04) for a “Rose Garden Victory Lap” after the “Obamacare Is Dead” bill passed 217-213.
But to paraphrase Yogi Berra, Obamacare is not dead until it’s dead – and it sure isn’t dead yet. As his House colleagues were in the Rose Garden yesterday, Senator Ted Cruz was saying, “Getting the health care bill out of the Senate is not going to be easy.” He is wrong. It will be impossible without a certain necessary condition.
Trouble is, the applies to the entire Trump agenda. That said, there’s good news – like Trump’s cool EO’s, why the coolest guy in the Cabinet is T-Tex, that the Hero of the Week is a Moslem lady, that the Loser of the Week is Mrs. Zero, and how the London Daily Mail went ga-ga over Melania.
We also feature the Worst Trump Joke Ever – which you’ll tell to your every friend – and we close with the most famous scene from the most beloved movie ever made. It makes you cry as it portrays a heroic patriotism of a country that may never have it again.
Incoming! There’s been such a barrage of news lobbed into the HFR this week that we thought we’d have to duck for cover. But it turns out that most of it is good. Not all, though. Might as well get that over with first. Which means you need to read a new book just out…
Meanwhile, on Monday (4/24) the Spectator offered a marvelous way to end Congress’ obstinacy on Obamacare Repeal: terminate, by a stroke of Trump’s pen, Congress’ illegal exemption…
The actual prospect of criminal prosecution by the Justice Department is the way to end UniParty corruption and bring RINOs to their senses. It’s also a way to do the same with corrupt Obama judges…
OK, let’s switch gears to the good stuff. And it involves something unbelievably cool. Here we go…
Late Monday afternoon (4/24), 60 or so conservative journalists and editors gathered in the Roosevelt Room of the White House for their own private press conference with President Trump. I was not there as I was, and still am, in Eastern Europe.
Another fellow who was not there was a writer for The Hill, Jonathan Easley. He interviewed a number of the attendees, many of whom whined and complained to Easley like spoiled brats. So he reported (4/25): Conservative Media Figures Disappointed with Trump Meeting.
One fellow who was there and not one of the complainers is Scott Johnson of Powerline. Not only is Scott a solid clear-thinking liberty advocate, he’s also a true gentleman. His account of the meeting (4/25): At the White House with Trump.
Scott’s is well worth reading. His conclusion at the meeting’s end: Trump gave “an impressive performance” in both substance and demeanor. He answered questions calmly and graciously, with “fluency and facility.”
What was not impressive was the lack of good questions from the President’s audience. Here was a golden opportunity, and with exceptions like Roger Kimball’s on Iran and others, the questioners blew it. Fully half, reported Scott, of the 30 minutes given them, was devoted to in-the-weeds questions on trade.
So here are a half-dozen Questions Never Asked but should have been. Like you, I sure would like to know the answers. Ps: There’s a Bonus Question.
There’s a presidential prediction this morning we should hope comes true:
So ISIS has one of its agents, Karim Cheurfi – nom de guerre Yousef al-Belgiki, Joe the Belgian – gun down a policeman in cold blood with an AK right on the Champs Elysées 60 hours before the election.
Looks like ISIS wants Marine Le Pen to win too. Here’s why….
The New York Post is wrong when it opined yesterday (4/20) that If US Campuses Can’t Protect Free Speech They Need New Management. What’s needed instead is….
We’ll see what the solution is to the fascist thugs infesting so many colleges, the good and the bad in Trump’s foreign policy, good domestic news, and a wonderfully inspirational Hero of the Week. Here we go…..
What you’re looking at would cause any world-class mountaineer’s jaw to drop. In the center is Kanchenjunga, the 3rd highest mountain on earth at 8,586 meters/28,169 feet. But it’s much more than that.
The mountaineering ultimate is to climb an achttausender – a mountain over 8,000 meters high (26,247’). There are 14 of them, all in the Himalayas and Karakorums of Nepal, Tibet, and Pakistan. But what you are seeing is unique – for the entire ridge line of the Kanchenjunga Massif is over 27,000 feet, with four 8,000-meter summits in a row.
From right to left: Kanchenjunga South, 8476/27,808; Kanchenjunga Central, 8482/27,828; Kanchenjunga Main; and Yalung Kang, 8505/27,903.
What’s even more astounding is that no one has seen what you’re seeing before from this perspective – from a helicopter 23,000 feet high.
Helicopters don’t fly remotely close to that height – except that our new specialized high-altitude Eurocopters can. I took this picture last week on our third Himalaya Helicopter Expedition – and I’d like to dedicate it to Jack Kelly, who enabled me to take it by writing the HFR in my absence….
So – welcome to the Good Friday HFR!
In that context, it’s only appropriate to begin with an observation of Jack Kelly’s in his HFR 03/31/17 that’s so classic it belongs in a future edition of Bartlett’s Quotations:
“CNN commentator Angela Rye compared Obama to Jesus. We could find out if we crucify Zero, wait three days, see what happens.”
FYI – Jack Kelly will be manning the HFR helm while I’m in Hidden Ireland in early June. If you’ve always wanted to experience the Emerald Isle in a truly magical way, now’s your chance. Hope you’ll join us…
The St. Patrick’s Day HFR (3/17/17) asked if TTPers would be interested in an exploration of the coolest places in Ireland this summer. The response was an overwhelming Yes! So here we go.
The best time is early June when the weather is beautiful and before the tourist summer flood. So our dates are Monday June 5 to Wednesday June 14. That’s from arrival to/departure from Dublin.
You won’t believe how much – and what – we’ll see and experience in those 10 days. I can only take 10 of you – actually just five couples – so if you want to be among them, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org right now.
I’ll send you the full daily itinerary with a lot of pictures – trust me, it will blow you away. If you’ve ever dreamed of experiencing the magic, the history, the beauty of Ireland, and getting to know the wonderful Irish people from all walks of life, now’s your opportunity.
To whet your appetite – yes, we go to the most famous pubs in Dublin, to Newgrange, the Cliffs of Moher, the Ring of Kerry, and Blarney Castle – but how about taking a small boat to the hideout of Luke Skywalker?
For he, as the latest “Star Wars” movie reveals, resides on the extraordinary island of Skellig Michael off the west coast. It is a World Heritage Site as a nature sanctuary and as the earliest monastic complex of the first Irish Christians in the 600s.
There’s so much more. To find out, again email me at email@example.com. Carpe diem. See you in Dublin.
Last week (4/06), the flagship of the Fake News Media, the New York Times, published a screed of fake history entitled, “Will Mexico Get Half of its Territory Back?”
The article is on a par with almost all of the NYT’s political commentary today, which is that of ludicrous dishonesty. Compare it to the real history of Mexico provided in Cinco de Realidad (May 2013).
You might also consult Mexican Nazis (May 2005) regarding the horrific racism of those who demand turning the Southwest US into a Mexican poverty pit.
How close advocating a racial civil war to break the United States apart comes to outright treason is a matter for debate. What should be clear is what the purveyors of Hate America Fake News at the New York Times have become:
It goes without saying that the entire Fake American Moonbat Left is in screaming outrage against Trump’s Tomahawking the Syrian airbase that launched the sarin nerve gas attack on Idlib.
So why would certain conservatives and Trump supporters join forces with the moonbats, and even go full-bore into Looney Tunes City like Michael Savage claiming it was a “false flag” operation? Or Ann Coulter, who now has a crush on Bashar al-Assad?
The front page headlines around the world of this morning’s (3/23) news are all the same – about the “driver,” the “assailant,” the “lone wolf,” the “knife-man,” the “knife-wielding attacker,” who murderously drove his car across Westminster Bridge killing and injuring dozens of pedestrians, and stabbed a policeman to death trying to enter Parliament in London.
There is story after story about the victims and the policeman, who are named with photos and their life stories. There is one story that is missing. Search in vain through the newspapers and websites of the British and US press, for you will not find one about the perpetrator – not who he is, not his life story, not even his name.
Scotland Yard is, at this writing, refusing to identify him. They only describe him as “Asian” – which is PC code in Europe for “Moslem,” and his attack as “an act of international terrorism.”
British Prime Minister Theresa May denounced the attack as “sick and depraved” – never even hinting at who or what is responsible for such sickness and depravity.
So who and what is? The answer may surprise you. For as much as you and I and every reader of British tabloids know that the “Asian knife-man” is a Moslem motivated by Islamofascist barbarism, that’s not who and what.
To learn who and what is responsible for that Moslem terrorist’s sickness and depravity, all Theresa May and every native-born Brit have to do is look in the mirror.
Last week (3/17), we discussed “The Suicidal Racism of Western Civilization.” Now we turn to the West’s – including America’s – suicidal masochism.
We start our celebration with a depiction of Ireland’s Coat of Arms, on which is Ireland’s national symbol, Boru’s Harp, named for Ireland’s national hero Brian Boru (941-1016), which resides at Trinity College in Dublin and is on the label of every bottle of Guinness.
Take some time today to read about Brian Boru in TTP’s nutshell history of Ireland, Beyond the Pale (August 2006). It will give you a special appreciation of the heroism of the Irish people.
And take a moment to enjoy Ronald Reagan’s Favorite Irish Joke in the TTP Humor File today.
Oh, yes, many TTPers with Irish ancestry or wish they had have asked me if I would take them on a exploration of the coolest places in Ireland. How about sometime this summer? Let me know – firstname.lastname@example.org.
OK – time for a pint of Guinness as we delve into the week. Here we go…
I lived in Hawaii once for three years. Growing up in Southern California, I had never experienced racism before. Thus it was shock to me to be hated for the color of my skin. Really hated for being a haole (how-lee).
That was in 1971. Barack Obama was ten years old attending Punahou School in Honolulu, where he was born and raised. Other than the 2½ years he spent in Indonesia, he lived his formative years (until he was 18 and left for college) within and a part of the Hawaiian culture of haole-hatred.
As did Derrick Kahala Watson – born in Honolulu, went to Kamehameha School for ethnic Hawaiians, graduated from Harvard Law School in the same class (1991) as his friend Barack Obama. In 2012 he made local headlines: Native Hawaiian Selection Made for Federal Judge.
On Monday (3/14), Obama – who appointed his law school friend to that federal judgeship – was in Honolulu. On Wednesday (3/15), that friend, Derrick Kahala, issued the most outrageously lawless, unconstitutional ruling in the history of the federal judiciary. Did Obama ask Kahala to do this? Ask the NSA guys who tape their calls.
In any regard, Kahala seized his opportunity to act on the haole-hatred he grew up with by targeting America’s Chief Haole with his ruling. For as you’ve by now guessed, haole means someone with white skin.
Which brings us to Iowa Congressman Steve King and his now-infamous tweet (see above) on Saturday (3/11) that “prompted outrage” by libtards everywhere.
Let’s start with the prediction in the Inaugural Day HFR of January 20: “Melania looked unbelievably stunning. She will now rapidly become the most glamorous and idolized woman on earth.”
This week we could see this becoming true, only far more so. Yesterday, Fox News reported: “Melania Trump’s Approval Ratings on the Rise.” They would be far larger except for the deranged Trump-hatred of Moonbat Democrats.
The poll was taken a week ago. On Wednesday (3/08), the First Lady hosted a White House luncheon in celebration of International Women’s Day. A quote of hers at the event has quickly gone viral across the planet:
“As an immigrant myself, having grown up in a communist society, I know all too well the value and importance of freedom and equal opportunity. Ideas upon which this great nation was founded and has continued to strive towards throughout its history.”
Her eyes reveal the beauty of her soul. Her eyes proclaim a serene joyousness in being alive, in being human, in being a woman, in being who she is. There are no doubts or fears or qualms in those eyes. There is no anger – there is only love and happiness.
In those eyes you can see why First Lady Melania Trump will become genuinely beloved by the American people and by people all over the world.
Will her husband? That may seem impossible now, given that Democrats and their Fake News minions really are as wacko as depicted above. Yet that too began to change this week.
Here we go with the most fun, the most illuminating, and certainly the longest HFR ever.
Does President Trump read the HFR – and did he read what it said last Friday (03/03)?
“Indicting and prosecuting to the full extent of the law with the possibility of years in prison is the only way to stop Deep State-Democrat-Fake News Media Treason.
This needs to start at the top. And at the top is not Chuckie Schumer, the editors of the Washington Post, nor the CIA leakers known to the FBI. At the top is Former President Barack Obama.”
For at 5:30am Saturday morning (03/04) he tweeted just what the HFR advocated the day before. The response was hysterical. After all, no one – no one – has the huevos to take on the entire Deep State-Democrat-Media Complex, right? Exactly wrong – not with Donald J. Trump. Big mistake.
For no one but Trump would have the chromium-vanadium steel cojones to take on the Deep State by going straight for its jugular, right for the throat of its emperor. It’s like Alexander going straight for Darius at Gaugamela.
I have a confessions after the Fake News Sessions Non-Scandal breaking yesterday (03/02). First, I was obviously wrong in Trump Triumphant the day before (03/01) for thinking there were grown-up adults among the Dems, in contrast to psychos like Maxine Waters, who would now abandon their delusions and recognize the reality of Trump’s Presidency.
No such luck. Chuck Schumer and all his ilk are just as treasonously insane as Maxine. The good news is that, by contrast to his Pub predecessor who never fought back, we have a president who will.
Indicting and prosecuting to the full extent of the law with the possibility of years in prison is the only way to stop Deep State-Democrat-Fake News Media Treason.
This needs to start at the top. And at the top is not Chuckie Schumer, the editors of the Washington Post, nor the CIA leakers known to the FBI. At the top is Former President Barack Obama.
“Mr. Speaker – the President of the United States!” The instant Donald Trump entered the House Chamber with that announcement of House Sergeant-ofArms Paul Irving last night (02/28), I knew something was different.
His bearing, his presence, made my head snap back. He was fully and completely, in a way than ever before, presidential. Before the election, after the election, at the Inaugural, since the Inaugural, he was always the Donald Trump we have known.
But from the very moment he stepped into the Chamber to thunderous applause, he was different. OMG, it hit me as I’m sure it hit millions watching, he is the President! Everyone on the Chamber floor knew it, for from that moment of entry on, he owned the room.
The Pubs were ecstatic, the Dems were immobilized in shock. As he proceeded to deliver one of the most magnificent presidential addresses to Congress in history, receiving innumerable standing ovations, all the Dems could do was sit on their hands with deer-in-the-headlights expressions on their faces as it sunk in what was happening. (Full text of the speech here, full video below.)
There were no disruptions, they sat there mute – with lady Dems in silly white dresses – not believing what they were witnessing: that all their efforts at delegitimizing this man’s presidency were over.
“To be honest, I inherited a mess.It's a mess. At home and abroad, a mess.”
No sane person can disagree. For the last eight years, the Zero Presidency was a ridiculous disaster either creating or doing nothing about a vast welter of serious problems all over the world.
The question is: what should Trump do about it?
That is, as an America First President, he sees his job is to attend to America’s problems first and foremost, that it’s not his job to clean up every mess on earth. What is his job is to focus on the messes that most critically affect our national security and our economy.
Let’s identify some of the biggest. Numero Uno is Chicom China, then comes Putin’s Russia, Erdogan’s Turkey, Euroweenie Europe, and Mullah Iran, while right next door to us is Drug Cartel Mexico and an entire country on the verge of mass starvation, Chavista Venezuela. There’s lots more, but that will do for starters.
None of the major messes will be cleaned up quickly nor with any one solution. So what follows is a series of suggestions to consider that might contribute to the cleanup process.
The week was capped off yesterday afternoon (2/16) by Trump’s mind-blow of a press conference in the East Room of the White House. You can read the full transcript here – or watch the full video.
Read or watch and enjoy. For the HFR, the best moment came when Trump told Jim Acosta of CNN he wasn’t going to be calling CNN “Fake News” anymore – that he was changing CNN’s nickname to “Very Fake News.”
The takeaway from this event is not that Trump went on an “epic rant” reading the riot act to the Lying Swine enemedia – it’s that he was having fun doing so. He was enjoying himself, as he admitted right on camera.
After a week of celebration by the Lying Swine, getting their first scalp (Mike Flynn’s), toasting themselves in every bar in DC that next they’d get Kellyanne then Preibus, and Dan Rather braying that Flynngate will be Trump’s Watergate causing him to resign – the last thing in the world these putzes expected was this from The Donald.
Instead of being cowed, humbled, and on the defensive, he from the get-go was on the offense, on the take-no-prisoners-attack, and having a good time doing so. The putzes were, and still are a day later, in a state of Shock and Awe. They better remember the feeling the next time they contemplate taking on this president. Here’s a reminder he Tweeted this afternoon (02/17). It’s war all right:
That didn’t take long, did it? 24 days into the Trump Presidency, the Fake News Media (FNM) claims its first scalp. This “scandal” should have been a joke. Now it’s a tragedy, because the White House didn’t laugh it out of the park at the inception, let the FNM blow it up into a cause célèbre, and then caved.
A very dangerous tragedy, because the White House allowed collusion between the FNM and the CIA to damage the presidency.
Let’s review what happened.
In late December, Trump’s National Security Advisor-designate Michael Flynn had phone conversations with Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kisylak. Langley promptly leaked to the FNM and Democrats suffused with Trump Hatred, like lunatic-commie Maxine Waters (D-CA) that Flynn, as a private citizen was in violation of the Logan Act.
The Logan Act bans private citizens from negotiating with foreign powers that are in dispute with the US. Langley huffed that Flynn was “negotiating” with Kisylak.
The instant Maxine began braying through the FNM megaphone, Trump and his Transition Team should have responded: “This is a joke, right?” But they didn’t. Big mistake. Why brings us to Francis Flournoy.
If you Google it, the very first hit at the top of the page is this article from April 2005: America Now Functioning As ‘Krytocracy’.
The second hit is: KRYTOCRACY: A Government of Judges, Rule by the Arbitrary Feelings of Unelected Judges. You’ll note that both are about an article in TTP I had written a few days earlier.
So here we are, 12 years later, with headlines this week declaring the consequences of the blatantly unconstitutional krytocratic tyranny we continue to suffer from today. Here’s how Trump will put an end to it…
The most fun of the week was on Capitol Hill. Here’s one reason:
Attorney General Eric Holder: Justice on Hold. Attorney General Loretta Lynch: Lynching Justice. Attorney General Jeff Sessions: Justice is back in Session…
There’s just no competition, Super Bowl 51 was the greatest ever hands down. Brady and Belichik are the greatest ever. The famously expensive Super Bowls ads, by contrast, were the worst ever. Impossibly brain-dead – anti-Trump commercials for football fans? What were these corporate board-roomers thinking?
I’ll never drink another Bud again – neither will a lot of others. Meanwhile, here’s the belly laugh of the week: Liberals in Despair over Patriots Win. How nice. Oh… and the best SP51 ad? Is there any doubt?
It was January 21, 1981, in the Cabinet Room of the White House with its windows looking out upon the Rose Garden. Having been inaugurated President the day before and 12 of his 14 Cabinet-designates already approved by the Senate, Ronald Reagan convened his first Cabinet meeting.
When the topic of the Soviet Union came up, Secretary of State Alexander Haig mentioned that US policy towards the Soviets since the onset of the Cold War in 1947 had been one of “Containment” (formulated by George Kennan). Reagan responded, “Not any longer.”
There was a quite pregnant pause of silence. Then National Security Advisor Richard Allen asked, “Mr. President, what do you think our Soviet policy should be?”
Reagan looked at him directly in the eye. “Well, Dick,” the President of the United States replied, “how about, ‘We win, they lose’?”
Those four words are what won the Cold War and caused the mighty invincible Soviet Union to cease to exist. Those four words are what will enable President Trump – and us – to do the same to the Fascist Left in America, and cause the Democrat Party as presently constituted to reside on the ash heap of history.
On January 24, 1995, President Bill Clinton delivered his State of the Union address to a Joint Session of Congress. These remarks during the address received a standing ovation from all Democrats and Republicans alike:
You may have to watch that more than once to believe your eyes and ears. Meanwhile, what right-wing extremist xenophobic racist Islamophobe said this in response to Trump’s 90-day travel ban on citizens from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen?
“Kudos to President Trump for his brave decision. Trump banned the citizens of countries in the embrace of Iran and prevented the Iranians from entering. They can only be dealt with through preventive measures. It is not necessary for America to host backward people, it has received enough before. What would a Yemini, Iraqi, Iranian, Somali or a Syrian do in America? They have destroyed their countries, they should not destroy America.”
The answer is this man, Lieutenant General Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, Police Chief of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
And so we launch into Week Two of Trump. The most fabulous news of the week? Just two words: Neil Gorsuch. He’s being touted as Scalia’s successor. Okay, but the truth is, he’s better than Scalia. Much better. Why? Just one word: Chevron.
There’s lots more… here we go.
Ereyesterday (01/31), I spoke at a meeting on Capitol Hill on Terrorism in the Balkans. Representatives from 13 European countries were present, together with several US Congressmen and Senators.
The presentations were focused on the threat of various Islamofascist groups such as ISIS and Iqwan (Moslem Brotherhood), plus lone wolf Salafis.
I decided to focus on something else. Here’s what I said:
‘Terrorism’ takes many forms. There is the horrific form of ISIS with publicized beheadings, the senseless slaughter of random ‘infidels,’ the infiltration of Moslem ‘refugees’ who proceed to demand Sharia law in non-Islamic lands.
There is another form of terrorism that I would like to address – and that is the purposeful undermining of democratic institutions within targeted countries, the destruction of a country’s culture and moral values, accomplished through bribery and corruption of a targeted country’s politicians, academia, and media.
This form of terrorism is more dangerously insidious than its Islamic counterpart – for it subverts a country’s own people to become traitors to themselves, to their own land, to their own culture, to their own values.
It is a form of terrorism that has no other motivation than nihilistic hate, no other goal but annihilation for the sake of annihilation, no other purpose but fascist totalitarianism for the sake of controlling other people’s lives.
The world’s number on perpetrator of this form of terrorism – which I call Fascist Subversion – is the world’s most evil billionaire, George Soros.
Ever hear that term? It’s the British equivalent of our being flabbergasted. This has been a week of being gobsmacked. Note that the term has two sides.
As Theresa met Trump at the White House late this morning, she declared, “America and Britain can lead the world together again,” while Trump made it clear that Britain was the US’s “premier ally.” They will work together on accelerating Brexit, the UK’s exit from the stifling EU, and a US-UK free trade deal. Tomorrow, however, is another story…
More gobsmacking. It’s actually overwhelming how much of it there has been in the seven days since The Donald became President Trump. So let’s start with what gobsmacked me the most personally at the very moment he took the oath of office.
All in all. this has been a Yuge week for Trump and America. Let’s enjoy it…
It is astounding how much misinformation and lack of knowledge there is regarding Syria today. This is ground zero for the war on ISIS and Jihadist Fascism, yet very few know what’s really going on. You are soon to be among them.
Let’s start with a quick story. In the pre-dawn hours of August 24 last year, 2016, a heavily armed force of the Turkish military dubbed Euphrates Shield invaded Syria and seized the border town of Jarabulus on the Euphrates River (see map). The excuse was to rescue the city from ISIS.
What actually happened was that a series of anti-ISIS Arab Military Councils had formed their own militias in the region composed of local fighters. They had succeeded in liberating the town of Manbij from ISIS south of Jarabulus a few weeks before, and were now poised to take Jarabulus as well.
But just as they were about to enter the city, the Turkish Army arrived. Within hours, the Arab militia fighters born and raised in Jarabulus saw ISIS terrorists shave their beards, change their black garments for Turkish uniforms, and join the Turks.
In other words, the Islamist and ISIS-supporting leader of Turkey, Recip Erdogan, ordered his army into Syria not to attack ISIS as his propaganda proclaimed, but to prevent the anti-ISIS militias from defeating ISIS in Jarabulus.
It is a day to celebrate with joy and exuberance. Yet it is far deeper than that. You may be like me, experiencing emotions hard to describe or contain.
Watching Trump speak at the Lincoln Memorial last night, seeing him and his family in front of the giant statue of Lincoln as a chorus of Marines sang the Battle Hymn of the Republic while fireworks exploded over the Reflecting Pool of the Mall – frankly, it made me cry and shiver with goosebumps.
What is happening before our eyes is a true historical moment. The throngs of people massed at the Inauguration Eve celebration last night knew it. They were hugely happy – calling out “We love you!” to Trump – and at the same time there was a solemnity to their happiness.
What they were feeling was far more than what revelers at, say, Times Square feel celebrating the Ball Drop on New Years Eve. They knew they were witnessing and participating in the rebirth, indeed possibly the salvation, of their country. They were experiencing an overwhelming sense of awesomeness that was palpable among them It certainly was what I felt.
As this day unfolds, it may be as hard for you to contain these feelings as it is for me. Savor the moment of this extraordinary day, January 20, 2017. It is a day you will never forget.
… Trump’s press conference on Wednesday (01/11) was explosively historic. He called Buzzfeed, that first published the obviously phony dossier, “a failing piece of garbage.” The CIA leaking it was “something that Nazi Germany would do.”
Then Jim Acosta of CNN started yelling questions, to which Trump responded, “Not you, your organization is terrible.” Watch and enjoy…
… Meanwhile, on Tuesday (01/10) night in Chicago, Zero gave his farewell address. At least that’s what I heard. One of my major 2017 New Years Resolutions is to never ever pay any attention whatever to anything Zero says from now on.
Luxor, Egypt. Haven’t you always wanted to go to Egypt? To see the Sphinx and the Pyramids, sunset on the Nile, the Tomb of King Tut, experience ancient mankind’s most glorious civilization?
It’s all here – and yet, tragically for millions of Egyptians, people around the world who dream of seeing all of this and so much more are afraid of coming here.
Why? For that you have to read Joel Wade’s The Benefits of Ignoring TV News in today’s TTP (01/12).
When I announced our visit to Egypt, I got a number of replies saying they’d love to go, they always wanted to, but it was just too scary now.
These are folks who have been watching way too much TV news. Maybe they’re scared now to go to Ft. Lauderdale.
Joel is talking about the damage that watching TV news can do to individuals. Here you see the damage it is doing to an entire country.
Happy New Year! We say good bye to 2016 in this last HFR of the year. And what more fun way to say da svidanya than to watch Zero close out his presidency becoming an object of ridicule by the Russian government?
This morning (12/30), the Russian Embassy in London sent out this Tweet:
That was followed by the spokeswoman of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, publicly mock Zero as a “loser, angry and shallow-brained.” With the inauguration of President Trump in three short weeks, “the curtain falls, the bad performance is over.”
If that prospect doesn’t cause you to raise glass of champagne tomorrow night in celebration, then nothing will.
There are big silver linings to Zero’s perfidy over Israel and his midnight deluge of stupid rules. We learn from a multi-billionaire who John Galt is.
There’s the coolest news of the week. It involves the term disintermediation and a guy named Sean Spicer. You’re going to stand up and cheer over this. The laugh your head off at the New York Times’ reaction.
Here we go with the end-of-2016 HFR…
We initiated this tradition with a list of the books I read and recommended in 2012, the first What to Read. That was followed a year later with What to Read 2013, then What to Read 2014, and What to Read 2015 a year ago.
Each of the links below are to the Kindle edition on Amazon, containing multiple comments and quotes. I read all of these on my iPad.
I kept the list not to all the books I read this year, but to a baker’s dozen of those I thought would be of real interest to TTPers. There are several I think it quite important for you to consider.
I’m sure you’ll find at least one or two fascinating either for yourself or someone you care for. Or a regressive libtard you want to educate and/or infuriate.
And, please let us know on the Forum what books rang your bell this year. Here we go.
Ancient Christians celebrated Christmas starting with the day after the birth of Jesus and ending on January 6th with the visit of the Magi in Matthew 2:11 known as the Epiphany.
Start with 12/26 and end with 1/6 and you get: the Twelve Days of Christmas.
No doubt you’re really tired of hearing Christmas songs by now, including this one, yet you may still be wondering what the heck partridges in a pear tree and eight maids a-milking have to do with the birth of the founder of Christianity.
So I thought it might be entertaining, as we recover from all the festivities, to take a look at the song’s origin, meaning, and myth.
First published in London in 1790, it was a "memory and forfeits" game played by children in the form of a song, where the leader recites a verse, each player in turn repeats it, the leader keeps adding verses until a player’s memory fails him/her and has to forfeit a piece of candy.
Even though The Twelve Days of Christmas was a kids’ song-game, it nonetheless had a deep religious meaning. Unlike the PC Happy Holidays of today, centuries ago Christmas was above all a religious celebration. All of the song’s twelve gifts are Christian symbols.
On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…
Merry Christmas! The days of “Happy Holidays” are over, as is the whole multi-culti libtard diversity Orwellian con game. America is having a Merry Christmas – and if the hopeless losers of November 8 can’t, it’s not possible for us to be less concerned.
The picture and its message you see above is funny, right? Actually, it’s much more than that.
Recall the days of yesteryear, when in 2008 it was absurdly ridiculous for Americans to consider electing a president with absolutely no qualifications whatever, so hardline Leftist he approved his Communist preacher praying for God to damn America, so mysterious he didn’t even have a valid birth certificate, simply because of the color of his skin.
Yet he was elected anyway as no criticism mattered, if you dared criticize him you were a racist. Once in the Oval Office, he initiated the most scandal-ridden presidency in US history – and none of that mattered as well. He proceeded to “fundamentally transform” our country straight into a cultural cesspool. Any objection to him and his policies was proof you were a racist bigoted homophobe, something irredeemably deplorable.
Big time Bad Karma. Which brings us to something called the Overton Window. A seismic shift is happening more important than a mere election. Read on – this HFR will give you a revelatory perspective on the world.
This is sudden, as an extraordinary opportunity has just emerged.
The world’s most courageous leader today is Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. Egypt, the largest and most important Arab country, had been taken over by the Islamofascists of the Moslem Brotherhood, Iqwan Muslimi. Obama was on their side and supporting them.
Al-Sisi, as commanding general of the Egyptian military, had the incredible cojones to stand up to both Zero and Iqwan, and swept them aside. He was then elected president in the first actually free and fair election Egypt has ever had in its 5,000-year history.
A dear friend of mine has over the years developed a close personal friendship with Sisi, ever since he was a lowly colonel. That friend is a United States Congressman who, in early January is leading a CODEL (Congressional Delegation) to Cairo to meet President Sisi in the Heliopolis Presidential Palace.
He has asked me to lead a parallel delegation from the Freedom Research Foundation, which I founded in 1984, composed of people interested in exploring the extraordinary business opportunities President Sisi is supporting in Egypt today.
Today it was announced that FBI Director James Comey has declared there is no evidence Russians hacked the US election.
Comey noted that Director of National Intelligence James Clapper agreed with the FBI’s assessment, while the only intelligence official pushing the Russian Hack Fake News story was the CIA’s John Brennan, who, Comey said, “takes his marching orders from President Obama.” Ouch.
In response, Bitter John Podesta wrote a screed in the WaPo this morning (12/16) about the FBI being broken. Maybe, John, but you and Hillary and every other Dem losing schmuck in the country are still residing along that river in Egypt. You can stay there and stew in your bile for as long as you want.
Meanwhile, 72 hours from now, Donald J. Trump will officially and legally be President-elect of the United States. This Watermelon Recount Russian Hack Fake News CIA Attempted Coup d’état Farce will be over. Flipping Electors is a Dem hallucination.
Yesterday (12/14), Forbes Magazine issued its list of “The World’s Most Powerful People 2016.” 74 names are listed, one for every 100 million of the world’s 7.4 billion. It’s fun to see Zero plummeting to #48, Chuckie Schumer dead last at #74, and Hillary not on the list at all.
But it’s a Forbes Farce to claim Vlad Putin is #1. It’s like claiming the naked emperor really has some clothes on. Putin has been pulling off the world’s greatest bluff for years now – 2016 is the fourth year in a row he’s been Forbes’ Numero Uno.
It’s like all those ubiquitous pictures of a bare-chested big-muscled Putin riding horses and killing tigers – when the guy is five-foot-six, and I know from personal experience not that strong. It’s like all those giant statues of Lenin everywhere in the days Russia was the Soviet Union, when Lenin was actually five-foot-one.
The notion that Trump will be Putin’s puppet is ludicrous. It’s the other way around. Trump the consummate deal-maker knows how to smoke out a bluff better than anyone.
That said, there’s no doubt that Putin will not instantly fold with Trump, but will continue bluffing until Trump calls his hand.
I believe Trump will call for cards and soon. Here are two tests for my prediction.
This morning (12/09), the Daily Mail reports in detail how Trump is exactly right in claiming Boeing’s cost for the new Air Force One is over $4 billion.
Even CNBC News had to admit: Trump’s Air Force One Tweet Was A Brilliant Move.
When I called Jack Kelly to thank him for the great HFR he wrote in my absence last week, he told me something I didn’t know – that Marine General and Defense Secretary-designate James “Mad Dog” Mattis has a huge bear rug lying in his living room.
“The thing is,” Jack tells me, “is that the bear isn’t dead – he’s just afraid to move.”
OK – we’re off! The HFR is packed this week with good news you need to know. Plus there’s a very important announcement at the end – and there’s the HFR Hero of the Year. Here we go…
