COLUMBUS DAY IS A CELEBRATION OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION

Christopher Columbus

Christopher Columbus

October 12 is for celebrating the 525th anniversary of Columbus’ discovery of America, for on that day in 1492, the Great Admiral landed on Guanahani (now known as San Salvador or Watlings) island in the Bahamas.

We commemorate this as a true discovery in contrast to all the claims of Vikings, Chinese, Irish, and others who supposedly came earlier – for once and only after  Columbus discovered America, it stayed discovered.

Unfortunately, Columbus Day is for most Americans just an excuse for a three-day weekend – which is why it’s a holiday today, Monday October 9.

What it should be is a commemoration and celebration of  Western Civilization – which is why the Left hates Columbus and his holiday.

If it’s your misfortune to run into any of these folk bemoaning the nightmare and tragedy of our coming here, you might suggest to them that they abandon every vestige of the civilization they hate as so evil.

THE PAINTED MONASTERY

painted-monasteryThis is the Painted Monastery of Voronet.  You read about it in 9/11 and the Religion of Slavery, written last month commemorating the 16th anniversary of the most evil attack on America in our history.

I am on my way to China today for my Mysteries of the Gobi expedition.  While Jack Kelly mans the HFR ramparts, I thought I’d tell you what I just discovered about Voronet that is truly extraordinary.  You might consider being in a comfortable chair you can’t fall out of, with three fingers of your favorite adult beverage at the ready.  It is that mind-blowing, and will get your mind off the insanities of current Lying Swine headlines.

Built and painted in 1488, Voronet is an apotheosis of devotion to the story of Christianity.  It is little wonder it is known as “the Sistine Chapel of East Europe.”  The beauty of its devotion is overwhelming.

I was taking a lot of photos, and it was only when I got back home did I take a close look zooming in on them.  Then I zoomed in on a panel that made my jaw drop to the floor.  Believe it or not, I suddenly thought of the human shrunken head on display in my study.  Then Santa Claus.  Here’s why.

HALF-FULL REPORT 09/29/17

 

This has been a revelatory week.  Hours after the HFR was posted last Friday (9/22), the President denounced the “SOBs” who hate their country so much they won’t stand for our anthem while being paid absolute fortunes to play a game.

His specific words were not intemperately spontaneous, but chosen carefully to get exactly the reaction – from both his supporters and opponents – they got. We’re only just beginning to see, today one week later, just how yuge a win it is for him.  As in yuge.

Simultaneously, this alleged political neophyte gets his entire base of tens of millions to jump to their feet in roaring support for him, lances the boil of the Left’s ruinous politicalization of sports, and exposes for all to see just how much Democrats and their Fake News propagandists really do hate America.

Soak in this headline from USA Today on Tuesday (9/26):  NFL Commits Suicide by Trump with Politically Correct Protests.

Focus in on that expression: “Suicide by Trump.”  This is Sun Tzu-level genius, goading and manipulating your enemies to destroy themselves, at no harm to yourself while increasing and expanding support from those on your side.  That’s how Ronald Reagan got the Soviet Union to destroy itself.

The “Suicide by Trump” strategy has wide application as we’ll see…

HALF-FULL REPORT 09/22/17

time-shrunkThis is the cover of the current issue of TIME Magazine on newsstands this week.  The issue is date-forwarded to October 2.  The cover story is entitled, “Divided Democrats Debate Their Future as 2020 Looms.”

“Can anything save them?” is the plaintive question on the cover.  When I showed this to my wife, she instantly answered, “No – all they have is anger and hate.  Nothing can save them until they get rid of it.”

As usual, she nailed it.  The enemies of America – foreign and especially domestic – are in beaucoup deep kimchee.  Welcome to the winningest HFR in quite a while.

Now there are two kinds of winning.  First is when your enemies are taking it in the shorts.  Second is when you’re getting cool stuff accomplished.  We have both kinds this week.  The first is more fun as it’s schadenfreude in spades.

So here we go – you’re going to love this… but be warned, it’ll make you cry at the end (no fair peeking…)

A PROVIDENTIAL PRESIDENT

providential-presidentRemember the day for it may go down in history – September 19, 2017 – the day the leaders of the world learned America has a Providential President.

No one ever has talked to them like that – ever, not even Ronaldus Magnus.  Trump’s speech to the UN was Reaganesque on steroids.  The most entertaining moment came when he condemned “the socialist dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela.”

Watch Trump’s expression in the clip below after he delivers this line:

“The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented.”  
The leaders had just applauded his call for “the full restoration of democracy and political freedoms in Venezuela.”  But when they heard that, they were stunned into silence or nervous laughter.  As he waits through their shock, his smirk tells you he knew exactly what he was doing.

He was fully aware that the majority of people he was talking to were corrupt socialist despots – this is the UN General Assembly after all – who justify their rule with the same socialist bromides of being “for the people” as does Maduro.

So he stood there through their shock, daring them not to applaud – which they then reluctantly did.  Then he drove it home:

TO EVEREST AND BEYOND

mount-everestIs seeing Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain at 29,032 feet, on your bucket list?  Funny thing is, trekkers who spend two weeks huffing and puffing up steep Himalayan trails to Everest Base Camp never see the mountain, except its point at the top as it’s always blocked by other mountains in the way.

Above is a view of Everest no one gets to see – the entire “Western Cwm” above the Khumbu Icefall, with the full Southwest Face of Everest on the left and straight ahead its sister peak of Lhotse, the world’s 4th highest mountain at 27,940 feet.

No one, that is, except for those who’ve been with me on my three Himalaya Helicopter Expeditions.  Now I’m leading my fourth and last this November.  This is beyond any doubt the single greatest one-week adventure it’s possible to have on earth right now.

For in going to Everest and Lhotse we’re just getting started.  We go to all eight of the highest, most magnificent mountains in the Himalayas.  We visit remote Sherpa villages, and a hidden Tibetan kingdom forbidden to get to until recently – it’s the last remaining true traditional Tibetan culture in the world.

Candidate Trump’s “No Amnesty” pledge August 31, 2016

It’s 6am and I’m back in the HFR saddle.  I’m very grateful for Rod Martin and Jack Kelly so ably standing in while I was gone – thanks, guys!

I always look forward to early Friday mornings, ready to roll with the HFR.  Yet it’s called the Half-Full Report to avoid being Pollyannic – and let’s face it, Pollyanna is in the Intensive Care ward this week hoping she won’t be on life support soon.

This has been building for some time – a series of unforced errors accumulating towards disaster.  And now it has come to this: #AmnestyDon is the new hot Twitter hashtag; Leftists, Never-Trumpers Gloat over MAGA Voters’ DACA Dismay is the headline this morning, and people are burning their MAGA hats.

This is true tragedy, a self-inflicted one of Greek Mythology proportions.  President Trump has dug himself into a deep hole, and it’s not just his DACA dance with Chuck and Nancy.

Yes, that’s pretty glass-emptying.  Yet, actually, lots of cool stuff happened this week.  So let’s get to it.

9/11 AND THE RELIGION OF SLAVERY

Stefan The Great defeating the Ottoman Moslems January 10, 1475

Stefan The Great defeating the Ottoman Moslems January 10, 1475

Zagreb, Croatia.  I have just completed my expedition through Hidden Eastern Europe, primarily through much of the Balkans.  It has been a historical lesson of sobering immensity.

Today is the 16th anniversary of the most evil attack on America in our history.  More morally evil than Pearl Harbor, which was an act of war targeting US military personnel (of the 2403 deaths, 68 were civilians). 9/11, by contrast specifically targeted civilians on purpose.  2,977 innocent human beings were slaughtered by Moslem terrorists, of whom 2,508 were civilians.

The Wikipedia entry on 9/11 casualties states:  “The attacks of September 11, 2001, were the deadliest terrorist act in world history.”

If you click on that latter link, up will come a list of 173 of the worst terrorist attacks, starting with 9/11.  Scroll down the list and you’ll be overwhelmed at how many are attributed to “Islamic extremism” – 120 out of 173.

The Moslem Atrocity of 9/11 is a trauma America will never forget and never forgive its perpetrators.  What Americans should also never forget is its context.  Here in the Balkans is where you learn that context in spades.

We suffered one horrific attack of Islamic barbarism.  What would it be like to suffer an unending series of slaughters and enslavements for century after century, for four or five hundred years?

Destroying history – Antifa is America’s Taliban

Destroying history – Antifa is America’s Taliban

Have you ever had a time when you hated being right about something? You predicted something truly awful was going to happen, and sure enough it did? How did that make you feel? Happy that you were correct, or miserable as you wish you had been wrong?

For me, it’s the latter. For years I have been explaining how and why the Left – which has taken over the Democrat Party, the Fake News Alt-Left Media, Academia and much more – is Hate America Fascist fomenting the worst racial problem our country has: anti-white racism.

Recently, I began warning that the Left was becoming overtly Nazi, its anti-white racism metastasizing into Nazi genocidally murderous hate with Whites as the new Jews. Please consider re-reading The Nazi Left and the Source of Trump Hatred (June 9).

This has been the week when all that came nightmarishly true. And it is all horribly worse than I ever imagined. There is, though, hope and silver linings.

You won’t believe what POTUS’ tweet on Black Jack Pershing implies. It’ll set your mind on fire. There’s lots more. Here we go…

HORATIO AT AMERICA’S BRIDGE

horatioOnce upon a time in days of long ago when kids in school were actually educated, they all knew the story of Horatio at the Bridge.

Winston Churchill committed all 600 lines of Macaulay’s famous poem about it to memory as a young boy, a story of epic heroism that inspired him all his life.

Horatio, or Publius Horatius, was a soldier in the fledgling Roman Army in 508 BC when the small weak city-state rebelled against rule by the Etruscans. His nickname was “Cocles,” meaning one-eyed as he had lost an eye in a previous battle. A huge Etruscan army attacked, slaughtering the Roman army, the remnants of which fled across the narrow Pons Sublicius bridge over the Tiber River and through the gates to the city.

As the Etruscans stormed over the bridge to sack and destroy Rome, one man stood in their way and defied them. Horatio yelled back at his fellow Romans to cut down the bridge behind him while he fought and killed the Etruscans before him.

Then out spake brave Horatius, The Captain of the gate: “To every man upon this earth Death cometh soon or late. And how can man die better Than facing fearful odds For the ashes of his fathers And the temples of his gods,

“Hew down the bridge, Sir Consul, With all the speed ye may; I, with two more to help me, Will hold the foe in play. In yon strait path a thousand May well be stopped by three: Now who will stand on either hand, And keep the bridge with me?”

Do you hear America’s Horatio calling out to you?

REICHSTAG IN CHARLOTTESVILLE

A Reichstag Moment?

A Reichstag Moment?

Maybe it is as it all seems.  A “white Nazi” named James Alex Fields Jr. plows his car with murderous intent into peaceful black protestors, killing one and injuring a score of others, and the demonization of whites becomes fully justified in America.

A perfect moment for the Hate Trump Dems and the Left.  But maybe too perfect. Taylor Lorenz is a well-known journalist now with The Hill newspaper in DC (the “hill” is Capitol Hill, it’s certainly not right-wing).  She was right there when Fields crashed his car.  She then went to the police station where Fields was being held.  She tweeted:

lorenz-tweet-081417The incredible violence of baseball bat wielding Antifas is ignored by the Lying Swine.  This incident is being lied about in order to demonize all whites and President Trump.  It is a true Reichstag moment.

goolagNo need for any suspense on who is the HFR Hero of the Week:  James Damore, author of Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber that TTP ran in full on Tuesday (8/08).

It is a masterpiece of highly-educated reasoned thought, of calm scientific analysis of Google’s counterproductive “diversity” policies.  Damore was arguing for genuine diversity of thought, talent, and skills among Google’s workforce, and gave evidence that Google’s policies suppressed it.

Instantly, it was denounced by Google’s SJWs (social justice warriors) as an “Anti-Diversity Memo” when it was exactly the opposite, and got Damore quickly fired by the quivering wimp who’s the Goolag’s CEO – who doesn’t have the brains to grasp his action proved Damore’s every word.

The damage done to Google, financially and reputationally is monumental.  Google has been exposed as Orwellian fascist.  There is so much more – like what Robert Mueller is really doing, and how the Alt-Right is Alinskyizing the Left.  Here we go…

DEM SENATOR BLUMENTHAL IS RIGHT – NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW

r-blumenthal-tweetRichie Blumenthal is everything Donald Trump despises. 

Even though he’s a Harvard grad with a JD from Yale Law, he’s never had a real job, never run a business, worked in government all his life, married an heiress who gave him a net worth of $70 million, lied about serving in Vietnam to get elected to the Senate (and later admitted it), and is now one of the biggest Alt-Left Hate America Cultural Marxist Jerktard Senators in Congress.

On Monday (8/07), his recent Twitter fight with the President resulted in the tweet above.

“No one is above the law” is factually and historically not true – but it should be.  Democrat Senator Blumenthal is absolutely right that no one, no matter how powerful or important, should be above the law – that if they are criminals they should be prosecuted, and if found guilty should be imprisoned.  Right, Senator?  You’re nodding your head in agreement, yes?

Good, we agree.  That means, then, that you further agree that Bill and Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, Ben Rhodes, John Brennan, and Barack Hussein Obama himself, are not above the law, right?

That means Robert Mueller is not above the law, right?  That if he is clearly and overtly breaking the Special Prosecutor law under which he is acting, then he must resign or be prosecuted, yes?

Why are you stuttering, Senator?  Why is your head suddenly paralyzed so you can’t nod in agreement?  Are you having some kind of seizure?

Is Steve Miller the HFR Hero of the Week or what?  That’s the way you handle the Lying Swine.  And Tucker, whom I’ve known since he was a very young boy, performs the coup de grace: “They are buffoons, the drunk guys with bad breath at the party who won’t stop talking.”

The RAISE Act – S.354 – is fabulous.  Here are President Trump’s remarks with Sens. Cotton and Perdue on Wednesday (8/02).  This is Absolute MAGA.  Or as the Daily Mail headlined it (8/02):

Trump unveils plan to HALVE legal immigration, give preference to highly-skilled English speakers and STOP extended families getting green cards

No more chain migration.  You have skills, speak English, can support yourself – welcome to the USA.  You want to come here to get on welfare – fugetaboutit!

Of course, the Lying Swine Alt-Left Cultural Marxist Fake News Media hates it – after all, it’s pro-American worker, and blocks millions of no-skill low IQ immigrants to flood the US, collect welfare and vote Democrat.  You watched above how Steve Miller wiped the floor with CNN’s Jim Acosta.  Now watch him do the same with New York Times’ Glenn Thrush…

THE DEATH OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS NIGH

Drudge Report screen shot July 31, 2017It is no accident, Comrades, that Drudge juxtaposed these particular headlines yesterday (7/31), together with a 10 year-old photo of Bela Pelosi celebrating becoming Speaker back in January 2007.

Pelosi ‘believes she will be Speaker again’ — ‘can smell good midterm election’ is the report Drudge linked to.  Right.  Just the day before on Sunday (7/30), the Fox News story was  Pelosi says "unimportant" for Democrats to win the midterm elections in 2018.

What this 77 year-old corrupt hag smells is the impending death of her party. 

The Lying Swine Alt-Left Cultural Marxist Fake News Media wants us to focus on sideshow antics in the White House, and ignore the massive perfect storm of scandals about to pitchpole the Dems.  As in:

As you may recall, there were no survivors on the Andrea Gail, the true story of which The Perfect Storm  movie was based.  Keep that video clip in mind when you think of the Democrat Party from now on.

Might as well confess, I am in a state of overwhelm regarding events of this week.  By the time you’re finished reading this HFR, you will be too.  Good grief, to quote Charlie Brown. 

Might as well start with the most fully demented headline of the week – for which there is a lot of competition.  The alt-left Cultural Marxists at Business Insider actually believe this:  Transgender Military Service Is A Winning Issue Against Trump (7/26).

Against?  Yep, that’s the bubble of pathological delusion lefties live in to protect their snowflake psyches from reality.  It’s hard to imagine a more winning issue for Trump than his Tran Ban. 

That’s just a hint of what’s to come.  You’ll be stunned by what the HFR Hero of the Week said in testimony to Congress yesterday.  Here’s the full OMG quote from his testimony yesterday – it’s very important for you to read this carefully.

Yet there’s so much more that’s critical for you to know and understand.  Here we go.

hillary-framed-trumpOK, it’s the National Enquirer, smirked at by people who pretend they are real journalists working for the Fake New Media.  This cover story appeared Wednesday afternoon (7/19).

Yet it got the immediate attention of the London Daily Mail, which ran a huge story that same evening (7/19): 

National Enquirer releases 'exhaustive investigation' into 'evil Hillary Clinton' claiming she framed the Trump family over Russia and the Don Jr. meeting was a setup.

TTP, however, beat them to the punch Wednesday morning with Paul Roderick Gregory’s Is Russiagate Really Hillarygate?

The bad news is that the Democrats’ coup attempt to overthrow the presidency – an act of unvarnished treason in the eyes of many – is proceeding apace.  Their first major scalp was Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusing himself from any DOJ investigation of the Collusion Hoax on March 2nd.

So what’s to be done about Mueller?  A lot, and here it is….   Welcome to an amazing HFR  Ready to learn what the real consequences will be if the Traitor Left succeeds in its coup attempt against Trump?  Here we go…

MYSTERIES OF THE GOBI

gobi1There are few places on earth that evoke more mystery and adventure than the Gobi Desert.  We’re going to explore it in October.

What you see above is the Hanging Monastery of Datong.  It’s been suspended on a vertical cliff  for 1,500 years, where over 100 Confucian, Buddhist, and Taoist monks live and worship today.

In the Gobi, there’s an oasis with the strangest forest on earth, an ocean of giant dunes sprinkled with cobalt blue lakes that many consider the world’s most beautiful desert, mountains candy-striped like rainbows, lost ghost cities, medieval walled cities where people live as they have for centuries, and the greatest treasure trove of ancient Buddhist art on the planet.

Then there’s Crescent Moon Lake.gobi12Let me show all this to you…

WHAT TTPERS SAID

ttp-membership-chartWe at TTP are so gratified over the tremendous response we got to our survey.  So many of you took the time to take it, and to respond with substantive comments.  Thank you all!

I thought I’d share with you what we learned – and quote the best comments. 

We asked, How long have you been a TTPer? An amazing 77.4% of you have been with us more than three years, 17.4% since the very beginning of TTP in 2003!  We have to be doing something right to keep so many of you that long. 

We strive to give you “insights and viewpoints not available elsewhere” – and 83% of you agree.  You’re interested in history, geopolitics, and a worldwide perspective, not simply the US.  And you trust us.  That means a lot.

These days, the number of news sites you can trust is shrinking rapidly.  The entire “Mainstream Media” in print, television, and the web has become “American Pravda” – a disinformation machine producing nothing but Democrat Agitprop

To The Point’s goal has always been to be an Oasis for Rational Conservatives.  For conservatives to have such an oasis of sanity from all the insanity we’re deluged with 24/7 is more important than ever.  We’re so grateful TTPers see this.

trump-jr-innocentWe’ve gone from the sublime last week to the ridiculous this.  Might as well start with the most fun you can have in a minute and a half.  Put up on YouTube ereyesterday (7/12). 

Fun aside, most of us wish this could happen for real to the scumbags of Fake News – that the headquarters of the New York Times and Time-Warner-CNN in New York and the WaPo in DC could look like Mosul does today with what it took to defeat ISIS:

mosul-today-after-isisFantasy aside, the Twitter hashtag #CNNisISIS is very popular.  As is #CNNBlackmail.  Hardly anyone tells pollsters they trust the media anymore.  It’s comforting to see the entire Fake News propaganda machine of NYT-WaPo-CNN-ABC-NBC-CBS-TIME lose more credibility by the day.

Nonetheless, we should be clearly aware they are calling their plays from Hitler’s playbook.  Before our eyes we see how Germans became Nazis in the 30s, as we see left-leaning Americans become a Nazi Left with Whites as the New Jews.

We see how the Fake News Media is following Hitler’s instructions in Mein Kampf  (vol. 1, ch. 10) on how to employ the Big Lie:

IF YOU HATE BEING WHITE PLEASE KILL YOURSELF

dont-judge-meThe Fake News Media’s reaction to President Trump’s magnificent speech in Warsaw last week (7/06) is a true teachable moment.

Honest commentators saw Trump’s expression of pride in and defense of Western Judeo-Christian Civilization on a par with the best speeches of Ronald Reagan and Winston Churchill.

Such sublime presidential eloquence has rarely if ever been matched.  Any actual American would applaud and cheer.  But not the AINOs (Americans In Name Only) that infest the Fake News Media.  They of course were outraged.  Possibly because they realized Trump was including them among our adversaries.

Let’s first ignore, however, black racist affirmative action journalists like the WaPo’s Jonathan Capeheart who specialize in guilt-mongering whites.  He laughably wrote “Trump’s White Nationalist Dog Whistles in Warsaw” (7/06).

He heard the “loudest of dog whistles” when Trump said We write symphonies.  “What on Earth does that have to do with anything?” he asks. 

The guy is so stupid that he doesn’t know that the people Trump was speaking to take enormous pride in that one of the greatest composers in human history – Frederic Chopin – was Polish.  So much so the Warsaw Chopin International Airport is named after him.

Let’s focus instead on folks like The Atlantic’s Peter Beinart, who wrote “The Racial and Religious Paranoia of Trump's Warsaw Speech” (7/06).  There’s only one solution to his problem.  Well, there’s one other which we’ll get to later.

HOW TRUMP CAN FORCE A DO-NOTHING CONGRESS TO DO SOMETHING

do-nothing-congressYesterday (7/10) at the White House Press Briefing, President Trump’s Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short stated:

“The Senate is conducting the slowest confirmation process in American history.  For the past six months, Senator Schumer has deliberately run an unprecedented campaign of obstruction against the President’s nominees for high-ranking positions in the government.” 

This is absolutely true.  Yet all Marc did was to complain – he offered no solutions whatever to a very real and serious problem except to ask Schumer to “stop” – with no threat of specific consequences if he didn’t.  Schumer’s response will be a smirk and a shrug.

This is no way to run a country.  We all know the source of the problem in Congress – the UniParty of Dems and Rinos that wants to maintain the status quo, keep the Deep State, and do nothing that might jeopardize lobbyists’ donations to them. 

Trump is a threat to all this, which is why the UniParty is in collusion against him.

What’s obviously needed is for the White House to replace whiny complaints with specific measures the President will take to force a do-nothing Congress into confirming his nominees and enacting his agenda.  Here’s what he can do.

FREEDOM’S BIRTHDAY 2017

freedoms-birthday[This was originally in To The Point for July 4, 2004. This is the version for 2017.  We at To The Point wish all of you an exceedingly happy Fourth of July.]

July 4th is Freedom's Birthday. My suggestion is, amidst the fireworks and barbeques and flag-waving fun – all of which are great – that you take the time to feel good about America. Take the time to read the Declaration of Independence aloud with your family.

There is so much to love about our country, so much to feel good about. Despite all the residual indecency from the Nightmare of Obama that can drive you crazy, there is so much decency and moral goodness in America that it just takes your breath away.

America is the most moral and humanitarian nation ever to exist – because of the founding principles of our country that we celebrate today.

No other nation or society in human history was founded on the moral right to individual freedom than America – that you, me, and all of us have the moral right to our own personal life, our own personal liberty, and to pursue our own personal happiness.

And more, much more.  That the only – only – moral purpose of government is to protect and enable the exercise of these sacred rights of its citizens.  Any other rationale for government guns and power over its citizens is immoral and illegitimate.

Thus what we celebrate today is the essence of our existence as Americans.  That essence lies in our Declaration of Independence.

Tsarevets Castle – Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria

For some time now, you’ve been seeing our “Non-Existent Countries” in the left side bar with the picture of St. George riding a huge horse bursting out of the Caucasus Mountains.

Last week, however, our visa applications to visit two of them – Abkhazia and South Ossetia – were denied.  We figured out the reason:  Putin may be preparing another military invasion of Georgia from Russia’s occupied territory of South Ossetia.

He doesn’t want any foreigners, especially US ones, in the way.

The other two “countries that don’t exist” – Transnistria and Srpska – are fine.  US passport holders don’t even need visas to go to either. Our itinerary to both remains unchanged.

So we’re making lemonade, going to places even cooler than where we were going.

Ever hear of the Painted Monasteries in the Carpathian Mountains?

Tirana, Albania.  Let’s say you’re an Albanian.  You idolize America because Albania is the most pro-America country in the world.

You have a choice to vote for who will lead your country – a man whose hero is President Trump, or a man who despises him; a man who embraces America’s core values of individual liberty, honest work, and moral integrity, or a man who is corrupt to the core, who is deeply in bed with the drug-running mafias that control much of the economy, and whose hero and mentor is George Soros.

Look at the two pictures above.  Who would you vote for?

The election was on Sunday (6/25).   On Monday (6/26), the government here in Tirana announced that Edi Rama, the corrupt protégé of Soros, had won in a landslide, the voters humiliatingly rejecting Luli Basha, who embodies America’s values.

How could this be? 

Because George Soros’ people in the US State Department enabled Rama to buy the election.

TRUMP AND MILLENNIALS

millenials2Millennials, born 1982-2004, are the same “Civic” generational type as the GIs who fought WWII.

Here’s a thought experiment.  In the 1930s when the GI Generation was the same age as Millennials are now (born 1900-1924), we had the Great Depression blamed on capitalism, rampant sympathy for the Soviet Union, and Marxist intelligentsia dominating cultural and political discourse.

In those circumstances, it would have been all too easy for American youth to rebel against any form of patriotism towards their country.  Suppose they had? 

Suppose their reaction to Pearl Harbor had been to ask, “Why do the Japanese hate us?  What have we done so wrong to deserve this?  Why should we die on some remote Pacific island that means nothing to us because we made the Japanese hate us?”

Instead, they rose to the challenge to become the most heroic generation American has ever had since the Revolutionary War – for both the Revolution and World War II was won by Civic soldiers.

Today, we are at such a turning point in the history of our country.  America faces an enemy just as evil and just as determined to destroy us as the Japanese of Tojo or the Nazis of Hitler.  Even more dangerous, in fact, for the enemy is not external on foreign shores, but is within and among us, inside the gates.  That enemy is the Nazi Left.

If President Trump could transform Generation Snowflake into a true patriotic pro-American genuinely Civic Generation, confident and optimistic about their future and that of their country – instead of fearfully needing safe spaces from reality – Trump could save America from the crisis it now faces.

Claviceps purpurea

Claviceps purpurea

Delaware’s Demtard Senator Chris Coons thought he was being clever yesterday (615) telling Fake News Scum Wolf Blitzer that “Trump is wrong, the Salem Witch Trials are the greatest ‘witch hunt’ in American history.”  

As usual with Demtards, he was being ignorant, stupid, and demagogic.   He was responding to Trump’s tweeting a few hours earlier:

trump-tweets-061617The term “witch hunt” is a metaphor used today for an attempt to create mass hysteria calling for the persecution of political opponents based on smears and lies with make-believe evidence.  That is precisely what Democrats and Fake News Scum are doing in their attempt to delegitimize Trump’s presidential election and the entire electorate that voted for him.

Coons says he has “family ancestors” from Boston so he knows all about the Salem Witch Trials from February 1692 to May 1693 that saw 19 “witches” executed by hanging.  He knows nothing.

This week’s HFR is loaded for bear. You are going to have a great time reading it.  Here we go…

THE NAZI LEFT AND THE SOURCE OF TRUMP HATRED

tolerant-liberalThis is no hyperbole.  Calling someone a “Nazi” is, along with “Fascist” the most ignorantly over-used hyperbolic insult the Left can hurl at anyone they hate.

Like the insult “Racist,” the Left has divested these insults of meaning, as are schoolyards taunts, “You stink!” or yelling “Boo!” and hissing at a referee’s bad call at a football game.

To call someone a Nazi for real is serious business.  It’s accusing them of wanting to commit racial slaughter of fellow human beings on a massive scale.  It’s accusing them of advocating a politics of criminal insanity, of being irretrievably evil and criminally insane themselves.

Yet that is what the Left in America is becoming before our eyes in broad daylight.  You want to know how Germans, one of the most intelligent, accomplished, and cultured people on the planet became Nazis in the 1930s – look at what is happening to the Left, to the Democrat Party, to the Fake News Media right now.

The circumstances and proximate causes are different.  History does not repeat itself.  Here is what is happening now.

HOLY TOLEDO!

king-alfonso-viToledo, Spain.   As you drive up the hill upon which this ancient city sits, at the city’s entrance you are greeted by this statue.  It is of King Alfonso VI of León and Castile (1040-1109) holding his sword as the Christian cross symbolizing his liberating Toledo from Moslem rule.

What you are about to read is revelatory history.  It starts 2,500 years ago, involves the heroically epic struggle of Christians for their freedom from Islam – lasting centuries – and ends with a shocking banner on the City Hall of Madrid hanging there today.

HALF-FULL REPORT 05/26/17

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…

DRIVE THEM OUT!

drive-them-outLet’s make this clear at the outset.  President Trump’s speech in Riyadh on Sunday (5/21) – from which the above is a quote – is one of the greatest speeches of any world leader in our lifetimes.

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.

HALF-FULL REPORT 05/19/17

time-cover-may-18The current cover of TIME Magazine, issued yesterday, May 18, is the Lying Swine media’s ultimate descent into Fake News Lunacy.

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…

TRUTH TO POWER

trump-tweet-051717This is not only Trump’s truest tweet, it is the most profound “truth to power” statement of modern times.  So when will President Trump start treating the FNM as America’s enemy for real?

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.

COUNTRIES THAT DON’T EXIST

ossetian-st-georgeThis is the Ossetian St. George.  It’s attached to a cliff along the road from Vladikavkaz in North Ossetia to Tskhinvali in South Ossetia.

Both straddle the Caucasus Mountains between the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea.  North Ossetia is a part of Russia -- but South Ossetia is a country that doesn’t exist.

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.

In addition to South Ossetia, they are Abkhazia, Transnistria, and Srpska.  You read about the latter two last year:

Srpska in Tectonic Europe (May 2016), and Transnistria in Where The Soviet Union Still Exists (August 2016).

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 they smiling?

Why are they smiling?

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.

texas-chainsaw-massacreIncoming!  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…

QUESTIONS CONSERVATIVES SHOULD HAVE ASKED THE PRESIDENT

trump-pointingLate 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.
