Dr. Jack Wheeler


what-to-read-2018As 2012 came to an end, TTP issued the first What to Read, a list of the books I read that year.  That was followed a year later with What to Read 2013, then What to Read 2014, followed by What to Read 2015, and What to Read 2016.

Alas, it was my bad that I skipped last year, 2017.  So I thought it best to renew the tradition now.

As before, I’m keeping the list not to all the books I read this year, but to just 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.

What follows is not advice for you.  Your interests are specifically yours, and none of these books may ring your bell.  But they all rang mine to various degrees.

Each of the links below are to the Amazon listing, containing multiple comments, reviews, and quotes.  You can get an idea from these if that particular book is for you.  The easiest way for me is to download the Kindle edition on my iPad – also the quickest and most inexpensive.  But if you prefer a real book in your hands, you can get that too.

There are of course constant companions ensconced in my library that I pick up and consult often – such as Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics (the link is to the Kindle edition, at $4.27). Also on Kindle now are a number of masterworks by Ludwig von Mises.

Von Mises is the greatest genius of economics who ever lived.  If you need an intro, start with his compact classic, The Anti-Capitalistic Mentality.  His magnum opus is the incomparable Human Action. It is staggeringly brilliant. As one reviewer correctly observes:

“Human Action is the most important book on political economy you will ever own. It was (and remains) the most comprehensive, systematic, forthright, and powerful defense of the economics of liberty ever written.”
So here we go.  And, please let us know on the Forum what books rang your bell this year!



partridge-in-a-pear-treeI hope you had the Merriest of Christmases yesterday, Tuesday December 25, but according to the song, the First Day of Christmas is the day after Christmas, December 26.  That’s today.

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 1/06 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, as we do annually here at TTP as we recover from all the festivities, here’s the explanation of the song’s origin, meaning, and myth.



“He’s hot with ram induction but it’s understood, I got a fuel-injected engine sittin’ under my hood…

Shut it off, shut it off, buddy gonna shut you down!

The Beach Boys’ 1963 rocker Shutdown is the POTUS theme song today – and the music is as cool as ever.  (Proof: here they are performing at a concert in Japan in 2012 – 49years later with teenagers screaming as before.  Shutdown starts at 1:50.)

‘Tis the week before Christmas and Santa has a mixed bag for us, nice presents along with lumps of coal.  Let’s see what he’s got.



Lesley Gore’s #1 pop hit for 1963, “It’s My Party And I’ll Cry If I Want To,” is the Fake News Media’s theme song this week since learning yesterday morning (12/13) that President Trump has canceled the White House Press Corps Christmas Party.

It’s Schadenfreudelicious, yes, but so much more.  Why is the Libtard Press so upset, calling POTUS The Grinch?  Would you go to the Christmas Party of someone you hate?  Would conservative reporters been upset if Obama disinvited them from his Christmas soirée, or would they say, “Thank heavens I don’t have to go to that schmuck’s party”?

No, Fake Newsers’ undies are in a twist because the man they hate won’t kowtow to them.  “How dare you not pay homage to us!” they rage.  “We get to insult, slander, and lie about you all we want, 24/7, and you have to wine and dine us because we do, to prove our importance, to certify we deserve our self-inflated egos!”

Sorry, you fascist pigs.  America has a Real Man as President who refuses to play your game.  It’s been a good week.  Here we go…



morocco-magic There is a magic in Morocco that few other countries on earth possess.  Athwart Africa’s northwest corner at the Strait of Gibraltar, its north coast is the Mediterranean, its west coast is the Atlantic, dotted with charming ports and beautiful beaches.

The size of Texas, it stretches from these seas to deep into the Sahara Desert, with the massive snow-capped Atlas Mountains in between.  This geographical diversity provides an astonishing array of scenic beauty.

map-of-moroccoYet it is the people and their culture that provide the real magic.  They are the Berbers, one the world’s most ancient peoples.  They call themselves Amazigh, the Unconquered People, the original inhabitants of Morocco and the entire Maghreb or North Coast of Africa all the way to Egypt.

Yes, the Berbers are older than the Egyptians.  How old?  Ever hear of the Lapps of Lapland in northern Scandinavia, reindeer herders who call themselves Saami?  The Berbers/Amazigh and the Lapps/Saami – living today one in the Sahara, the other in the Arctic – are directly related.

Both are descended from the same stock of Cro-Magnon Ice Age hunters that split in two 15,000 years ago – one moving far north, the other south crossing the Gibraltar Strait to Africa.  The Moroccan Berbers today are their descendants.  (See Appendix below.)

Wheeler Expeditions is going to experience the magic of Morocco and Berber culture in early April next year.  Perhaps you’d like to experience it with me.



frackers-gift What might this be?  As it’s right close to the Tex-Mex border, you might think it’s something to do with illegals invading across it – proposed ICE Catch & Detain areas, maybe.  But no.

It’s a Christmas Present to America from the entrepreneurial heroes of America’s fracking industry and the US Geological Survey (USGS).

A lot going on this week.  Here we go…



pearl-harborTomorrow, December 7, 2018, is the 77th anniversary of the “Day of Infamy” as President Franklin Roosevelt condemned it, Imperial Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor.

December 7, 1941 should rightly by condemned by history as one of the most infamous in the annals of mankind – but not primarily because of the Japanese.

Rather, it was one of the greatest acts of treason ever committed by citizens of a country against their fellow countrymen, resulting in hundreds of thousands of their deaths.  That would be American Communists precipitating the US entering World War II in order to save the Soviet Union.

Here’s who they are and how they did it.



trials-for-treason-tweetWhen I first saw this Treason Meme all by itself on Drudge ereyesterday (11/28), I thought it was a funny spoof.  Then I checked Trump’s twitter feed and my jaw dropped.  POTUS himself posted it!  Whoa, Nellie.  This is deadly serious, no spoof.  And about time.

That’s quite a lineup.  Two former presidents, one of their execrable wives with her girlfriend Huma and hitman Pervert Podesta, both of Zero’s Attorneys General, his Intel and FBI chiefs, plus the Evil Duo of Mueller and Rosenstein.  The President of the United States is saying they all belong behind bars.

Which they do.  And so many others.  Where’s “Commie John” Brennan?  Slimy Andy McCabe? Where’s Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey?  Guess there was no room for them in the meme, not to mention the reporters and editors CNN, WaPo, New York Times, and others of the Fascist Media.

It’s going to be a very crowded jail cell.  Okay, here we go….



Thanksgiving TurkeyWelcome to the Thanksgiving HFR!  I hope you had a marvelous time last night, ate too much turkey and trimmings, drank too much wine or whiskey, expressed an overabundance of gratitude to Providence, and if there was some Libtard relative at the table determined to ruin things, everyone laughed at him.

As Mae West was fond of saying, “Too much of a good thing can be wonderful!”  And as Mark Twain observed, “Too much of something can be bad, but too much whiskey is just enough.”

There are too many blessings in my life to count that I’m grateful and thankful for, chief among them my wife and our two sons.  And right up there is our TTP community.  I so deeply appreciate all the kind comments TTPers sent me on the Forum, phone or email regarding The Lesson of Thanksgiving yesterday (11/22).  Thank you all.

We’ve got a lot of ground to cover this week – some serious, some funny, some depraved, and a lot of winning, foreign and domestic.  Let’s go…



America’s First Thanksgiving – Plymouth Rock 1623

America’s First Thanksgiving – Plymouth Rock 1623

Today, Thursday November 22, is Thanksgiving in America.  A celebration of a bountiful Autumn harvest is an ancient tradition in many cultures.

The Romans celebrated Ieiunium Cereris, dedicated to Ceres, the goddess of agriculture.  The Chinese have been celebrating Zhōngqiū Jié (Mid-Autumn Festival) for millennia.  In Japan it’s Jugoya.  For the Hindus of India, it’s Sharad Purnima.  The Celts of the British Isles celebrated Lughnasadh which is the Harvest Thanksgiving in England and Canada today.

The origin of Thanksgiving in America is traditionally that of the Mayflower Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock.  Yet the Kindergarten school plays all over the country this week, with five year-olds portraying the noble Indian, Squanto, teaching the helpless Pilgrims how to feed themselves, is not how it happened.

So here’s the real history of America’s First Thanksgiving, the extraordinary lesson to be learned from it, followed by a very personal lesson I have learned this year.



As California goes, so goes the nation – into a Democrat sewer

As California goes, so goes the nation – into a Democrat sewer

Kathmandu, Nepal. I’m back from Wheeler Expeditions’ 6th Himalaya Helicopter Expedition – a mind-boggingly memorable experience all of us will treasure for the rest of our lives.

I was hoping that this week’s news might be better than that of the last.  That hope has been dashed to the degree it’s given me a wide-awake nightmare.  Let’s start with how last week’s HFR (11/09) began:

“Obviously, the majority of voters failed their IQ test on Tuesday (11/06).  My initial reaction is: forget all the silver lining, Trump-really-won Pollyanna happy talk.  This turned out really badly. 


It shouldn’t have been close, it shouldn’t have been remotely close.  The Left, the flat-out Fascism that has taken over the Democrat Party, needed to have the hell beaten out of it electorally.  Now a preponderance of voters – your fellow citizens – gave the green light for that fascism to flourish.


And of course, whenever it’s close, the Dems will use every filthy trick they know to cheat their way into victories they didn’t earn.  Already provisional ballot boxes are being discovered in the trunk of someone’s car, recounts are demanded, suddenly losers like Arizona’s Enema surge ahead, and in many other states as well.


What do we do?  We fight.  There is no other choice, other than submission to being slaves of the Left.”

What we’ve got at the end of this week is the realization of just how much we have to fight to avoid that submission, how deeply entrenched the cultural and moral corruption of the Left’s Fascism has become throughout our country.



Back to Mount Everest for my 75th

Back to Mount Everest for my 75th

Kathmandu, Nepal.  Welcome to the World Freedom Day HFR!  And to my 75th HFR!

Here is President Trump’s Presidential Proclamation on World Freedom Day. November 9 is a US federal government official observance celebrating the Fall of the Berlin Wall and the subsequent liberation of Eastern Europe and the Soviet Colonial Empire from Communist tyranny.  It is a special day for me, as I was privileged to play a substantive role in helping President Ronald Reagan achieve this.

Today is also a very special personal day for me as it is my birthday – my 75th birthday in fact.  I call it my Himalayan 75 that I told you about last September, as I embark once more on Wheeler Expeditions’ Himalaya Helicopter Expedition.

And best of all, both of my sons, Brandon and Jackson, are here in Kathmandu with me.  We’re operating two HHEs this fall season, and Brandon just finished leading the first, while Jackson is co-leading the second with me starting tomorrow.  What better birthday present could I have than my two sons joining me to make Wheeler Expeditions a family business?

Being in the Himalayas is isolated from the world.  So tell me – did anything important or interesting happen in the US or elsewhere this week?  Didn’t we have some kind of election?  How’d that turn out?

Okay, seriously, folks, here we go.



The Palace of Versailles

The Palace of Versailles

Nothing to do on Election Day but wait for the verdict.  We need a break from all the frenetic frenzy swirling around us.  So why don’t we all relax, forget about everything for a moment, take your mind off it all, while I tell you a story.

Gather around, boys n' girls, and let me tell you a story about moral debauchery during the greatest age of intellectuality mankind has ever known, about kings and concubines, dukes and adulterers, heroism and war, with an ending that will change the way you look at the most mundane everyday thing.

We are in 18th century France.  The Sun King, Louis XIV (1638-1715), is dead, his 72 year reign of total extravagance ending with a catastrophic war lasting 14 years and bankrupting his nation (the War of Spanish Succession 1701-14).  Louis' great-grandson is his only descendant left alive, who becomes Louis XV (1710-1774) at age five.



newyorkers-halloween-election Welcome to the Happy Halloween HFR!  There will be plenty more trick-or-treats in the next 80 hours or so until Election Day, but those this week have been corkers.

In addition to holding massive record-breaking rallies all over the country for GOP candidates with his inexhaustible energy, the President has been triggering the Enemedia into meltdown after meltdown all week long.

He freaked them out yet again yesterday afternoon (11/01) in his White House speech, here in full at TTP:  Our Illegal Immigration Crisis and U.S. Border Security.  This is what in particular gave them ‘splodey heads…

An amazing week, it’s looking good, here we go!



vote-dana The lead article on Breitbart this morning (10/31) is: “Ten Races Could Determine Who Controls House After Midterms.”

One of the ten is California CD 48:

CA-48: Incumbent Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA-48) now has a two point lead in this Orange County district over his Democrat challenger, Harley Rouda, in a poll released by Monmouth University last week. While still a statistical tie, a poll earlier this month showed the two candidates in a dead heat, 48 percent to 48 percent.


For more than half a century, Orange County was the strongest Republican county in California. This district, however, has been moving slowly left for some time. In 2016, Hillary Clinton won the district by two points.”

The Left has always hated Dana for his key role in getting rid of their idol, the Soviet Union, for being so unapologetically conservative across the board – for 30 years the ACU Ratings of Congress has given him a well over 90% conservative score (latest ranking 94.42%) – and now so totally pro-MAGA.

The difference is that this year, the Left and the Dems have been pouring money into the campaign of Dana’s opponent, a carpetbagger from Columbus, Ohio named Harley Rouda, Jr.  His father, Rouda, Sr., was a self-made entrepreneur who built a very successful business from scratch (HER Realtors in Ohio).

Harley, Jr. is an all too-typical child of inherited wealth, who having never earned his money resents and apologizes for it by embracing socialist-fascist anti-capitalist left wing causes and politics.  So he moved to California and is trying to buy a seat in Congress and join Nancy Pelosi in trashing America.

As reported by Breitbart (10/12), Rouda supports every far-left position there is, open borders, amnesty for illegals, sanctuary cities, pro-abortion, the entire Pelosi-Bernie-Antifa agenda.

So far, Dana’s popularity has been able to fend Rouda off.  But just now, radical left-wing billionaires have suddenly flooded Rouda’s campaign coffers with millions.

On October 25. The Orange County Register reported that Billionaire Michael Bloomberg Spends $4 Million to Back Rouda and Defeat Rohrabacher, Making CA-48 the Priciest House Race in the US.

Almost 80% of the $18 million-cost of the race comes from radical lefties like Bloomberg and Soros to defeat Dana.

Dana can fight back and triumph, but he needs our help to do so.



violent-right You’ve seen the screaming news today – a Democrat’s dream Alt-Right White Trump Supporter named Cesar Sayoc has been arrested by the FBI on suspicion of sending all the Fake Bombs to a dozen top Dems and Fake Newsers.

It’s simply too good to be true that this Ultimate October Surprise just fell from heaven into Democrat laps by sheer luck and chance.  The guy is a total lost soul kook who’s easily played.  He has a long history of wackdoodle threats that even Geraldo Rivera points out:

geraldoriveratweet102618 Previously, he had no history of being anywhere on the right, much less fanatically so.  Yet suddenly, his van is very professionally covered in Trump stickers and decals:

This cost a lot.  Graphic artists will tell you such a van window collages were laid out on a precision grid with each carefully sized – they can’t be lined up perfectly by taping them from inside the van.  This is pro work and he’s an indigent.  Who paid for it?

Let’s hope Wray and Sessions order a forensic exam of Sayoc’s finances.  This is a set up – Sayoc was paid well to do this by Soros or someone of his ilk.  Bet on it.  But will it be uncovered in time to undo the damage?  Will it be uncovered at all?  That’s a bet you might not want to take.

There’s lots more in this HFR – here we go….



mad-demsJerusalem, Israel.  We’re in the middle of Hidden Holy Land II with a wonderful group of TTPers.  It’s dawn here, meaning it’s just past midnight in DC, and still yesterday in California.  By the time I wrap this up, Friday in America will have barely begun, so if any October Surprise happens today, it will have go unmentioned here.

It is extraordinary to be here at one of the great crossroads of history on the eve of America’s crossroad of history just 25 days from today.  First however, let’s reflect on what a momentous week this has been in the history of Western Civilization.  In particular, yesterday and today.

Yesterday, October 11, we celebrated the 1,286th anniversary of the Battle of Tours in 732 AD, when Charles Martel (686-741), forever known as The Hammer, and his 30,000 Christian soldiers crushed an invading horde of 200,000 Moslem Jihadis in what is now central France.

Today, October 12, is for celebrating the 526th anniversary of Columbus’ discovery of America, for on this day in 1492, the Great Admiral landed on Guanahani (now known as San Salvador or Watlings) island in the Bahamas.

But we’re just getting started.  We’ll go from when the first human culture began ca. 40,000 years ago to where Abraham in buried to why Dems have become as demented as Palestinian terrorists to a genius pro-Trump rapper in the White House yesterday.  Let’s go.



american-or-democratYou’ve seen it in a hundred movies or more.  It’s a plot device used over and over.  You know who the good guy is, but you’re not sure who the bad guy is.  You have your suspicions but maybe it’s someone else.  Then comes the defining moment of confirmation – when a character commits an act of irretrievable evil.

He (or she) has done something for which there is no excuse, it is irretrievable, there is no hope of recovery or salvation.  No more suspicion, the plot is now fixed and must lead inevitably towards the hero destroying the villain in a climactic confrontation.

We are living this movie right now.  We are one month away from its climax.

Most all times in our lives as individuals or those of a country, an issue is not black and white.  There are arguments on both or various sides, and we must choose where the preponderance of good lies, choose which side has more assets than liabilities.

Not this time.  Not this election on November 6.  The Democrats’ criminally deranged and morally disgusting behavior towards Judge Kavanaugh and his family is irretrievable.  They have proven beyond doubt to be an evil that must be extinguished electorally.

There is now no moral excuse for voting Democrat.  Are you an American or a Democrat?  On November 6, you cannot be both.

Shiraz, Iran.  “Where are you from?” the Iranian man asked me.

With a big smile, I happily answered, “America.”  He responded with a smile of his own.  “Ah, America… America Number One!”

He hooked his two index fingers together.  “American people, Iranian people, good… friends.”  He unhooked his fingers and waved his hand in a gesture of contempt.  “Governments, no good.”  We both belly-laughed.

This took place in November of 2014, when our government meant the despised Obama to him.  It doesn’t mean that any longer. Iran is back in the news this week, with President Trump delivering a clear condemnation in his brilliant speech to the UN General Assembly Tuesday (9/25):

“We cannot allow the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism to possess the planet’s most dangerous weapons. We cannot allow a regime that chants “Death to America,” and that threatens Israel with annihilation, to possess the means to deliver a nuclear warhead to any city on Earth. Just can’t do it.


We ask all nations to isolate Iran’s regime as long as its aggression continues. And we ask all nations to support Iran’s people as they struggle to reclaim their religious and righteous destiny.”

Thus I am optimistic that there’s hope for Iran.  The long – two thousand five hundred year long – history of Persia and the West is what I call The Persian Ratchet.  An ebb and flow that ratchets up and down over the centuries.  I’ve appended a summary of this history at the end.  Note it includes why Persia had its name changed to Iran in 1935.

Note also that history comes after photos of mine that I’m sure you’ll enjoy.  For now, let’s talk about the Iranian people I met a little while ago, for it is they, not their government, that give me hope.



theyre-after-you So there you have it.  You can’t get clearer evidence of this than current Dem demagoguery with Brett Kavanaugh.  Dem dirtbags have no morality whatever as any normal person has.  All they care about is gaining power over you and me, and will commit any lying, cheating, stealing, and smearing it takes to get it.

But really – we all know this, which must include Republican Senators.  While the Dems are called the Evil Party for good reasons, it’s not true that the GOP is the Stupid Party, for no one can be that blind and dumb.  No, the GOP is the Coward Party, and right now that fatal flaw may result in their extinction.

There are so many lessons and good things to know this week.  Let’s go…



face-of-pure-evilThere are times when the face of pure evil that hides behind a mask of normality displays the hideous horror of its true self.

This is what California’s Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein has done.  The ghoulish attempt to destroy a honorable man’s life with a disgusting completely invented smear for which there is no evidence whatever should disgust anyone of moral decency.

With any luck, Senate Republicans may for once have the backbone to brush aside the pathetically transparent last-moment Anita Hill-type scam and quickly confirm Judge Kavanaugh.  That, tragically, may be asking far too much of Lady Luck.

Nonetheless, it is an opportunity to expose the scam that “DiFi” has been pulling off for many many years.  For she is far – far – more corrupt, crooked, and criminal than Hillary.

And like Hillary, her husband is her partner in crime.  Just like Hillary and Bill Clinton, Dianne Feinstein and Richard Blum should be in jail for the rest of their lives.

The crookedness – indeed treasonous crookedness – of Feinstein and Blum is almost beyond belief.  Equally beyond belief is the treasonous refusal of the Enemedia to expose it – exactly like their refusal to expose that of the Clintons.



peanuts-on-trumpCountdown to launch – 53 days to go until November 6.  First thing to do is watch and read then-candidate Trump’s historical battle cry in late October 2016, posted on TTP this morning: We Are At The Crossroads of History Again.

His election was a great battlefield victory in the war against the Hate America Left – but that war is far from won.  The next great do-or-die battle looms before us on November 6.

Also posted this morning on TTP is Michael Walsh’s soaringly eloquent, Rage, Rage Against the Dying of the Dream.  The founding literature of Western Civilization is Homer’s Iliad, composed from centuries-old oral traditions around 700 BC.  It indeed starts with Homer’s immortal lines, which Walsh compares to the self-destructive rage of the Democrats today.

That’s just for openers.  This was an intense week, really bad for Google, Dems, the global libtard media, and good for the good guys.  Let’s go…



[This 5½ minute “Crossroads of History” speech/video by then-candidate Donald Trump was made in the closing days of the 2016 campaign, late October.  This coming November we reach the same crossroads of history once again.  Please watch, read the speech text below, send it to every single person you know, then work for a Red Wave this November 6 as if your and your country’s future depended on it – for it does. –JW]

"Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment with a new government controlled by you, the American People.

The Washington Establishment and the financial and media corporations that fund it exist for only one reason: to protect and enrich itself.

The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election. For those who control the levers of power in Washington, and for the global special interest, they partner with these people that don't have your good in mind.

Our campaign represents a true existential threat, like they haven't seen before. This is not simply another four year election. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not we the people reclaim control over our government.

Western Cwm of Everest at 7,000m/23,000ft, Everest to left, Lhotse straight ahead

Well, this is sobering – at least for me.  Two months from now, I turn 75.

How did it get here that fast?  I haven’t a clue.  What I do know is that the older you get, the faster time goes by.  Which means, I better not slow down.

My attitude towards life is one of undiluted gratitude.  Each one of us is unbelievably lucky to be alive, to be conscious of and participate in this world.

And what a world it is.  The wonders of our world, and your capacity to experience them, are endless.

I’ve been granted by good fortune to experience so much of our world, every country on the planet in fact.  Yet there is one place more than any other that keeps calling me back:  the Himalayas.  So that is where I’ll celebrate my 75th.  Care to join me?

The highest, most staggeringly gigantic mountains on our earth are here, eight of them over 8,000 meters.  You see two of them, Everest, highest of all at 8850m/29,028ft, and Lhotse 4th highest at 8516m/27,932ft, above.  Here they are from a different angle, and  the other six. We go to them all – by the world’s best high-altitude helicopters.



kav-confirms-hearingRemember the theme of the HFR last weekA Masoquismo Continuo!  The motto of the Democrat Party-Libtard Media Complex: The Masochism Continues!

That went into hyper-drive this week.  As we know, self-styled liberal-leftie “progressives” are actually regressives advocating Venezuela as their future for America.

Okay, they’re politically regressive, but now we see before our eyes how they’ve become neurologically regressive.  They are actually turning their adult brains into those of children with no control whatever over their emotions.

Fully-adult Charles Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in charge of Soon-to-be-Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, allowed the hearing to turn into a madhouse circus as it displayed for the world to see Democrats becoming children with spoiled brat temper tantrums.

The ultimate act of masochism is, of course, suicide.  It would be hard to get a better example of this than the death by virtue-signaling appeasement of the Left just performed by Nike.   POTUS asked the question everybody has:nike-fail There’s so much more.  The fun begins….



Leipzig, Germany, July 7, 2013

Leipzig, Germany, July 7, 2013

For over a thousand years, Leipzig has been one of Europe’s leading trade and cultural centers.

St. Nicolas Church was first built in 1165.  Subsequently transformed into a giant Gothic Cathedral, it was where Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) had several first performances.  The famous Leipzig Opera was founded in 1693. The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra is one of the world’s oldest symphonic orchestras established in 1743.

Yet when I was first here in 1990 shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall,  all of these magnificent structures and every other in the city were encrusted with black sooty grime.  Everything was an ugly mess after 45 years of Soviet Communist rule.

What Leipzig has become today would have been unimaginable to the people I met in 1990, in a total daze after living most all their lives amidst the cultural wreckage of Soviet Communist tyranny.  It’s now the Boomtown (“boom-stadt”) of Germany.

This was far from inevitable.  There is no “Arc of History” bending towards progress or justice or anything else – that’s just Marxist invented claptrap.

Here’s what history really is:



Among the Queen of Soul’s many memorable songs, the one most remembered is her massive 1967 hit, Respect.  Take a moment to enjoy:

Tragically, that was the one thing the Franklin family did not give her for her funeral on Friday, August 31.

Yesterday (9/03), the Associated Press ran a story carried around the world: Aretha Franklin’s Family Says Eulogy Was Offensive.

Well, of course, one would think, that must be the “very, very distasteful” eulogy delivered by a sociology professor infamous for being a hate-filled anti-white racist, Michael Eric Dyson.  But no, they took offense not at the worst eulogy to Aretha, but the very best.



trump-pence-at-the-topA Masoquismo Continuo! 

That’s the theme for the HFR this week.  We’re adapting the motto of the RENAMO Anti-Communist freedom fighters of Mozambique (where Portuguese is the lingua franca) in the 1980s, A Luta Continua, The Struggle Continues.

Now, enjoy the motto of the Democrat Party-Libtard Media Complex:  A Masoquismo Continuo!  The Masochism Continues!

Last week’s HFR explained why Trump Derangement Syndrome is causing the Dems’ and their media poodles’ death wish.  It’s that all the passions of the Left are frenzies of masochism.

One of the behavioral rules of lefties – such as they always lie and always project – is that they always double-down.  This week, true to form, they doubled-down on their masochism.   So settle in your most comfortable chair with a full glass of a full-bodied red, and let’s have some fun.



memorial-wallI’m exercising all my will power to stay calm and not hyperventilate – and I hope you will do the same.  I’m up at dawn since writing the HFR is an all-day marathon, checking the British papers as it’s still too early for those in the US.

London being five hours ahead of New York, much of the US Lying Swine media get their clues on what to morning-headline from their Limey Lying Swine counterparts.  You need to brace yourself for this.  It’s not satire.  This is the actual “news” headline in the London Independent this morning:

russian-bots So we come to an extraordinary teachable moment for all Americans.  Teachable for what?  It explains why Trump Derangement is causing the Death Wish of the Democrat Party. Here is the explanation in a nutshell.  There’s so much more in this HFR.  Here we go…



Temptation Mount where Jesus was tempted by Satan (Matt 4:8)

True, the Holy Land of Israel – birthplace of the two founding religious traditions of Western Civilization, Judaism and Christianity – will be around for a long time to come.

But this is the Last Chance to visit the Hidden Holy Land with me this coming October. This will be my sixth time there and the last.

We have a marvelous group of TTPers coming – and we have room for only one more couple. This really is your last chance to make your life-long dream of experiencing the Holy Land come true – with me.

Welcome to the Unhinged HFR.

In the middle of August when the primary concern of most folks is whether the inside of their forearms is as tanned as the outside, instead we’re up to our eyeballs in unhinged news.  Feel free to say what you think we missed in the Forum.

It’s been a Wacko Week, so much so it’s hard to know where to begin.  Might as well begin the most wacko of all, CNN’s latest heartthrob even dumber than Stormy Daniels.  How dumb?  She titled her book after herself, not PDJT:  Unhinged. Let the fun begin.



trump-cures-cancerAs the flagship of the British Libtard Press, the London Guardian, celebrates today (8/16), 350 US News Outlets Publish Editorials Denouncing Trump's 'Dirty War' on Press.

The Washington Times, by contrast, flipped the game with Solidarity In The Trench.  Agreeing with the claim the media is not “the enemy of the people,” the media instead should be called “the enemy of Donald Trump,” concluding:

“Setting out to take down a president by any means necessary is not the role of a responsible press. When newspapers return to their fundamental role, the public reputation of the press will recover. The sooner the better.”

What the WashTimes also did was ask their media colleagues so suffused with TDS – Trump Derangement Syndrome – to reflect on their own sins and not those solely of our President.

This is something that the Fake News Media, together with Dems on Capitol Hill, all the way to #Resistance and Antifa thugs, not only won’t do but cannot do.  Why?  What really is the source of their maniacal, hysterical, unhinged Trump Derangement?

And what could be the historical opportunity the Left is handing us and America with their dementia?





It’s ironic that the founder and communications director of Turning Point USA, Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens, were having breakfast at the Green Eggs Café in Philly Monday morning (8/06) when what happened to them should be a historic turning point for every normal American.

They were beset by the crazed-with-hate fascists of ANTIFA screaming at them exactly like the crazed-with-hate fascist Democrats of the 1950s Segregationist South screaming invective at young blacks going to restaurants or schools.

Over a year ago (June 9, 2017) I wrote: The Nazi Left and the Source of Trump Hatred.  It’s critical for understanding the dementia sweeping through Democrats right now, with the critical difference between the German Nazis under Hitler and the New Nazis of the American today being Auto-Nazism.

That’s just the start of an amazingly intense week (becoming the new normal now).  Intense yes, but we’ll have fun on the way.  Let’s go.

Tinian Island, Pacific Ocean.  It’s a small island, less than 40 square miles, a flat green dot in the vastness of Pacific blue.  Fly over it and you notice a slash across its north end of uninhabited bush, a long thin line that looks like an overgrown dirt runway.  If you didn’t know what it was, you wouldn’t give it a second glance out your airplane window.

t_runway_able_1.jpg On the ground, you see the runway isn’t dirt but tarmac and crushed limestone, abandoned with weeds sticking out of it.  Yet seventy-three years ago today, August 6, this became the most historical airstrip on earth.  This is where World War II was won.  This is Runway Able.

This is where President Truman had the courage to achieve victory over a fascist enemy because he knew the American people would vindicate it.

President Trump has that same courage.  His presidency is a gift to America from Providence.  Now the moment is arriving when Americans must prove worthy of that gift.

It’s August.  It’s hot.  Time for a cold beer, relax and have fun.  Let’s have a Fun HFR this week.

Might as well begin with the HFR Hero of the Week.  Of course, that’s the Divine Sarah.  How can anyone except a libtard not love Sarah Huckabee Sanders.  From yesterday (8/02).  Enjoy.




that-was-awesomeThe #1 Best Seller (nonfiction) on Amazon today (8/02) is Greg Jarrett’s The Russia Hoax: The Illicit Scheme to Clear Hillary Clinton and Frame Donald Trump.

It was released 10 days ago (7/24) and instantly shot to the top of the list.  I’ve been buried in it every spare moment I have for the last several days.  I’m not done yet but I can already tell you the case Jarrett makes is simply overwhelming.

Overwhelming in many ways.  The depth and extent of Obama government corruption, the willingness to overtly suborn the Justice Department, the FBI and the CIA for egregiously illegal political purposes, to risk the ruination of the entire justice system of the Federal Government and public faith in it.

The evidence for all of this is irrefutable.  Obama’s Director of the FBI, James Comey, Obama’s Director of the CIA, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and so many others directly under them are corrupt to the core.  The level of corruption, of cheating, lying, and illegality permeating much of our government is staggering.

So the question is, what is to be done, now that all of this is exposed?



have-to-askWelcome to Yes the Insanity Continues, It’s Going to Get Worse for Them but Better for Us HFR.  So let’s talk about how Democrats and their Fake Newsers are drug pushers.

First, though, let me thank Jack Kelly for his great HFR last week while I was in Spitzbergen leading a small private group there.  Thanks, Jack!

Okay… the first thing to understand about Lefties today, from Democrat Congresscritters to Antifa to Miss Occasional-Whatshername, the latest 2-digit IQ Dem heartthrob, is that they are all drug addicts.  What’s the drug they’re addicted to?  Anger.  They’re anger junkies, rageaholics.

Turns out that anger addiction is a neurochemical brain disease just like addiction to opiates, alcohol, or gambling.  Google “anger addiction” and you’ll get 278,000 hits.  Here’s a good explanation of how it works in the brain from Anger Addiction and Why Rage Feels So Good.

The insane levels of anger and rage reaching homicidal levels now among libtards is fomented by the anger drug pushers of CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, other such media ilk and the countless Twitter hashtags they spawn.

Just like there’s AA – Alcoholics Anonymous – for alkies, there’s RA for anger addicts: Rageaholics Anonymous.  Consider sending the link -- -- to folks at CNN like Jim Acosta or at MSNBC like that androgynous Madcow person, and suggest they sign up.

Okay – this HFR is really fun and really informative.  Here we go…



honorable-folks-not And Rat Rosenstein, Songbird, Dem Traitorcrats, the GOPe, the Enemedia, and the entire Deep State?

Just when you think there’s no possible way these morally diseased folks could become crazier than they are already, they dig themselves even deeper into the depths of dementia.

I won’t bore you with repeating their lunatic tweets and public statements over what a traitor Trump is for refusing the bait in the trap they set for him last Friday the 13th.

The ludicrousness  of the trap is brilliantly explained by Andy McCarthy: Mueller’s Politicized Indictment of Twelve Russian Intelligence Officers.

“Make no mistake: This is nakedly politicized law enforcement. There is absolutely no chance any of the Russian officials charged will ever see the inside of an American courtroom. The indictment is a strictly political document by which the special counsel seeks to justify the existence of his superfluous investigation.”
Then Andy spotted the real bombshell of Rosenstein’s announcement of Mueller’s phony indictments:
