HALF-FULL REPORT 08/31/18

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.

HALF-FULL REPORT 08/24/17

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…

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.

THE OPPORTUNITY OF TRUMP DERANGEMENT

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?

FROM 1957 TO 2018 – DEMOCRATS HAVEN’T CHANGED

FROM 1957 TO 2018 – DEMOCRATS HAVEN’T CHANGED

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.

TRUMP AND TRUMAN

[This essay is in honor of the 73rd anniversary of August 6, 1945]

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.

WHAT IS TO BE DONE?

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 angermentor.com: 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 -- http://www.rageaholicsanonymous.org/ -- 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…

THE EVIL FARCE

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:

ISRAEL AKOSHAV!

shrine-of-jesus-birth

Where Jesus was born, Church of the Nativity, Bethlehem, Israel

Is there a Christian who hasn’t dreamed of being, once in their lives, at the very spot where Jesus was born?

Or laying their hands on the Stone of Anointing, the slab Jesus’s body was laid upon after being taken down from the Cross?

Stone of Anointing – Church of the Holy Sepulcher

Slab of Anointing, Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Jerusalem, Israel

Is there a Jew who hasn’t dreamed of praying at the Western Wall?

Western Wall, Temple Mount, Jerusalem, Israel

Western Wall, Temple Mount, Jerusalem, Israel

Israel is called The Holy Land for very good reason. It is the birthplace of the two founding religious traditions of Western Civilization. If you’ve been fortunate enough to have experienced this sacred land, that’s wonderful.

But if you haven’t, you know you have to in your lifetime. That time is nowakoshav in transliterated Hebrew.

It’s now because we are fast running out of time for TTPers to go on Hidden Holy Land II in October (October 8-18). October is when the weather in Israel is perfect with hotels and reservations being taken fast. We have room for only one, possibly two more couples, then we must close it out. No more room at the inn.

It’s now because this is the last time I’ll take TTPers to Israel. I’ve been there at least six times now, I’m turning over Wheeler Expeditions to my sons Brandon and Jackson next year. If you want to go with me to Israel, it’s this October.

It’s now because we have a marvelous group of your fellow TTPers coming. I know them all. We all see the world eye-to-eye. You’ll love being with them (and make lifetime friends).

It’s now because there is no better exploration of the Holy Land than what I've put together. I personally designed our itinerary, there’s nothing else like it. Read Hidden Holy Land II on the TTP left side bar to see for yourself.

It’s now because you know in your bones that your life will feel incomplete if you don’t make The Holy Land a part of your life, and in a deep, rewarding way.

That’s certainly what happened to TTPers on Hidden Holy Land I last April. Here’s what one of them, Mike Cooley, posted on the TTP Forum (6/16):

“I can attest to what an amazing trip this is. If you are considering a trip to the Holy Land, THIS is the one to go on. Why do I say this? The statement that you will go places and see things in the region that other trips do not go near is NOT an exaggeration.

 

I was a member of the last expedition, and I had stayed an extra night in Tel Aviv. While there, I met and told some local Israelis about the trip that I had just completed, and they were ASTONISHED to hear that I had been to Hebron, the Golan Heights, I walked through knee deep water in hand-carved tunnels underneath Jerusalem that are over 2,000 years old, and the list rolls on.

 

The lodging, food, and local expert guides were all outstanding. THIS is a tour that takes you places few other tours, and a great many Israeli residents, seldom make it to.”

It’s now because as they say in Israel, vam la 'akoshav, ayemtey? If not now, when?

So click here for the details on The Hidden Holy Land II. Now. I’ll see you in Jerusalem. Israel now! L’Chaim!

HALF-FULL REPORT 07/13/18

Welcome to the Friday the 13th HFR.  It’s a good day for Democrats to be Friggatriskaidekaphobics.  Strzok the Smirking Schmuck is now the face of the Democrat Deep State attempting a coup to overthrow the duly elected government of the United States.

In the hearing yesterday (7/12), Democrats completely disgraced themselves.  Constantly interrupting and being obnoxious as possible, talking about “separated children,” student debt, even Puerto Rico, they defended Strzok’s treason repeatedly, with one of them – Demtard Steve Cohen – stating that Strzok deserved a Purple Heart for enduring the hearing.

At the end of the hearing, House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte told Strzok he will be held in Contempt of Congress for refusing to answer legitimate questions.

Once Goodlatte does, expect to hear a lot about something called “Inherent Contempt.”  It hasn’t been used since 1934, but there will be a clamor to use it now.

An awful lot of ground to cover in this HFR.  Here we go….

AMERICAN RECONQUISTA

Santiago de Matamoros – Patron Saint of Spain

Santiago de Matamoros – Patron Saint of Spain

In 711 AD, a Moslem army crossed the Straits of Gibraltar to conquer all of Christian Spain.  It took 750 years to kick them out.

The story is told of the Christian Reconquest of Spain – and of Spain’s patron saint Santiago Matamoros, meaning Saint James the Moslem-Killer (those are Moslem soldiers under his horse’s feet above) – in Reconquista (TTP, August 2009).[i]

Now, in a correlation of historical ironies, we are about to embark on an American Reconquista of our own.  Actually, three of them simultaneously, all deeply interrelated.

History, however, moves far faster today than in the Middle Ages.  Our Reconquista will not take centuries.  Indeed, victory over all three could well be before the end of the Trump Presidency in 2024.

Let’s start with the most immediate.  Two days ago on July 1st, Mexico declared war upon the United States.

FREEDOM’S BIRTHDAY 2018

freedoms-birthday[This was originally in To The Point for July 4, 2004. This is the version for 2018.  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.

One reason is that, for all your worries about America’s culture and morality, you and all your fellow conservatives can feel good about your country. Liberals can’t. One of the defining characteristics of leftie-liberals is an inability to feel truly proud of their country – proud to the bone.

You cannot be a liberal without feeling apologetic and embarrassed over being an American. You cannot be a conservative without lacking any such embarrassment or compulsion to apologize at all.

That is why the Left is filled with so much hate and rage towards President Trump – and why we feel so much affection.  The Left doesn’t want to Make America Great Again – and we do.

HALF-FULL REPORT 06/29/18

man-or-liberalWith the Fourth of July right around the corner, we have so much to celebrate this week that the question is not, Are you tired of winning yet?.  The question now is, Have you run out of popcorn yet?.  Better buy a lot more.  This show just keep getting better and better.

This is the week, to take a prime example, that exposed The Brittleness of the Left (6/28).  Tossing modesty aside, it’s the Must-Read of the Week (and it’s Free, you can send it to everyone you know) – in which we learned that it’s not just college kids, it’s that all Lefties are snowflakes.

A key character trait of all Liberal-Lefties is avoidance of personal responsibility, acceptance of which is a necessary condition for being an adult.  Thus a physically grown male Lefty remains a man-child, while a female Lefty remains a woman-child – for the above meme applies to both genders.

Another necessary condition of being a real adult, man or woman, is one’s capacity for reason to override one’s emotions.  Lacking this capacity is what makes children crybabies ruled by their feelings – which is exactly what Lefties are.

Leftie crybabies have been on bright klieg lights display this week like never before.  Here’s a trio of examples you’ll revel in.  And there’s massively more in this Fabulous Fourth of July HFR…

THE BRITTLENESS OF THE LEFT

Justice Kennedy: “Ruth is 85 – do I tell her it’s time to retire?”

Justice Kennedy: “Ruth is 85 – do I tell her it’s time to retire?”

In 1987, I wrote an article for the Heritage Foundation entitled, "The Brittleness of the Soviet Empire."

I argued that the structure of the Soviet Empire, including the Soviet Union itself, was brittle. When a physicist describes a physical substance as brittle, he has definite characteristics in mind.

A brittle structure may be very stable. Unbending and unchanging, it may be able to withstand a great deal of pressure and remain unaltered for a considerable time. But it is inflexible; stresses cannot be redistributed except by causing the flaws to grow until a sudden, catastrophic failure occurs shattering the material and breaking it apart.

A brittle structure does not change slowly and gradually. One moment it seems sturdy and unyielding; the next moment it is in pieces.

That’s exactly what happened to the Soviet Union.  That’s exactly what’s happening to the Left in America today.  As in today, June 28, 2018.  Mark the date.  Millions of Lefty Trump-Haters feel just like this guy as you are reading this:

HALF-FULL REPORT 06/22/18

i-dont-care-jacketWOW… Who knew FLOTUS is a PR genius?  And the gutsiest.  She’s learned from the master, who happens to be POTUS.

Without saying a word, the world’s High Fashion Queen wore a $39 Zara jacket that annihilated, nuked, obliterated, tore to shreds, made mincemeat of every demented proto-hominid Trump-hating has-been celeb from Samantha Bee, Kathy Griffin, Peter Fonda, Robert DeNiro on down plus their Fake Newser megaphones.

The headlines started appearing last night (6/21).  By early this morning (6/22, 830AM), Googling Melania + “I Really Don’t Care Do U?” got 47 million 700 hundred thousand hits.

Talk about shock and awe, a total wipeout firestorm meltdown in the Libtard Enemedia.  It hit them right between the eyes like a punch from Rocky Marciano, yet they were too brain-dead to get the message.  The number of headlines describing as “baffling” what Melania has done is uncountable.

Everything about this is no accident, comrades.  The cheap jacket instead of her usual haute couture coat costing thousands emphasized how cheap and worthless she regarded her and her husband’s hate-filled critics.

Wearing it on a solo visit to an illegal alien children’s shelter on the Tex-Mex border – the status of whom is the Fake News’ freakazoid hysteria of the moment – emphasized that, while of course she cares for children, she couldn’t care less about the phony manufactured Fake News crisis about them.

The words on the back, in white paint like graffiti on a wall, carried an ice-water bath of a message.  That of course she cares for her children like any mother – she called the Secret Police to go after Peter Fonda after he threatened Barron – the people spewing filth and lunacy mean nothing to her.

And so much more.  For the question, “Do U?” means they should mean nothing to you either.

ENOUGH!

enoughThere’s a scene in John Wayne’s greatest movie, The Searchers, where Ward Bond stops Wayne from killing a savage Comanche who had slaughtered his brother’s family and raped-murdered their daughter.  “That tears it! Wayne shouts, as he vows to hunt down the savages without him.

And he does.  Near the movie’s end, he finds the Comanche chief “Scar” and scalps him.  That’s the way I feel towards the Trump-hating, America-hating Left right now – from Hollywood “celebrities” to CNN/NYT Fake Newsers to Deep State criminals like Comey and Brennan.

I want their scalps.

Earlier this month (6/05), I wrote “Where’s the Left’s Horse? It referred to the famous scene in The Godfather when the movie producer who had insultingly refused a polite request from the Godfather woke up the next morning with the bloody head of his beloved horse in his bed.

“What is it,” I asked TTPers, “that, if it happened to the Left’s culture mavens, from the New York Times to Facebook, Twitter, and Google, they would react with total submissive terror the same as the movie producer in The Godfather?”

TTPers responded with more posts on the Forum than we’ve had in some time.  I appreciate them all.  Yet in the meantime, Left Derangement has gotten worse.  There’s no time to lose, the time is now for radical solutions.

AN ENTREPRENEUR IN PARADISE

great-blue-hole This is the world renowned Great Blue Hole of the Caribbean, made famous by Jacques Cousteau.  It’s part of the Belize Barrier Reef, the third largest coral reef system on the planet.

HIDDEN HOLY LAND II

TTPers overlooking Jerusalem – April 2018

TTPers overlooking Jerusalem – April 2018

TTP and Wheeler Expedition’s The Hidden Holy Land in April was such a smashing success that so many of you have asked – Can you do this again, and soon?

We are happy to comply – Hidden Holy Land II will be this October:  October 8 to 18.

If there is one place on more TTPers’ bucket lists than any other, it’s the birthplace of the two founding religious traditions of Western Civilization, Judaism and Christianity.

You could spend a lifetime in the Holy Land and not see it all, for under every rock there’s 4,000 years of extraordinary history.  Yet millions of visitors come here and see so little.

They go to the famous places, take a lot of pictures, hear a lecture most of which they forget once they’re back home, and that’s about it.  Israel, the Holy Land?  Yeah, been there, done that.

So how about doing it for real?  That means:

*Experiencing all those famous places to get an in-depth understanding of what actually happened there and why.

*Experiencing places you never heard of, yet are equally fascinating.

*Experiencing Israel on a personal level, making friendships that last a lifetime with people who live here.

*Gaining a revelatory grasp of modern Israel that’s deeper than has anyone you know.

*Having all of this sink into your bones so you never forget it as long as you live.

Isn’t that what’s on your bucket list?

Welcome to the Hahahahahah! HFR.  I cannot recall a week that has brought me so many belly-laughs as this one.  I think you’ll agree.

Let’s, however, pull some heartstrings first.  On Wednesday (6/06), President Trump commuted the life sentence with no parole for Alice Marie Johnson, who was in her 21st year of federal prison.  Here she is greeted by her family upon her release:

 

She expresses nothing but thankfulness and gratitude, looking at the television cameras to say “God bless America.”  In an interview with the Associated Press, she said:
"I'd like to say, President Trump, thank you for having mercy upon me. Thank you for taking the time to look at my case, and feel like I deserve a second chance in life. I promise I will not let you down."
Okay, ready to laugh your head off?  Here we go…

WHERE’S THE LEFT’S HORSE?

It’s one of the most terrifyingly memorable scenes in all motion pictures.  If you’ve ever seen The Godfather, the 1970 original, you’ve never forgotten it.

The Godfather’s consigliore goes to see a famous movie producer about a movie role for his godson.  This is what happens:

 

In a subsequent scene, it’s casually mentioned in passing that the godson got the role.

I was prompted to recall this by the events of the last several days.  You can prod and prod and prod someone until they finally snap and can’t take it anymore.  Everyone has their limit and I have reached mine.  I want to know where the Left’s horse is.

THE DEMOCRAT DREAM – WHERE ORWELL’S 1984 IS REAL

korea-on-mapAs of today (May 31), it looks like the Trump-Kim Summit will still take place in Singapore on June 12.  Peace between North and South Korea would be an astounding achievement, previously deemed utterly impossible.  That it may be possible we will see, this December 10 in Norway’s Oslo City Hall, Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un awarded the Nobel Peace Prize boggles the mind.

I have been to North Korea three times, 2010-2012.  Now might be a good time to tell you about it.

As you may know, I’ve been to every country in the world (198 counting 193 UN member states, 2 UN observer states, and 3 sovereign countries blocked from UN membership: Taiwan, Kosovo, and Somaliland), as well as over another 100 separate political jurisdictions.

So it is with some authority I can say North Korea is far – far – away the weirdest place on the planet.  It is George Orwell’s 1984 made real.  Thus it is not easy to describe something so off-the-wall bizarre, so totally over the top that there’s nothing to compare it to.

Let’s start with the unexpected.  For example, North Korea is an environmentalist’s paradise.

spy-gate The Storm we have been waiting for has finally begun.

This Wednesday POTUS Tweet was a historical message.  No longer is the target simply the “Deep State.”  Now it is the “Criminal Deep State.”  It gives a masterfully memorable name to the culminating criminal scandal:  Spygate.  And the critical message is in two words: “turned around.”

On Tuesday (5/15), President Trump spoke at the 37th Annual National Peace Officers Memorial Service at the US Capitol in Washington.  The link is to the full text of his heart-warming address, in which he pledged that his presidency’s policy is “to protect those who protect us.”  I encourage you to read it entire.

Yet the reaction to it, as with so much else the President did this week, exemplifies a main theme of this week’s HFR – that the party affiliation of “D” no longer stands for Democrat.  Rather, D now stands for Delusional.  Which means we must talk about her:

HIDDEN CENTRAL ASIA

The Registan - Samarkand

The Registan - Samarkand

Central Asia.  The very words evoke the ultimate in the remote, the exotic, the unknown full of wonders.

Here you will find the ancient cities of the Silk Road still in all their splendor, and one of the glitziest cities you’ll ever see built yesterday in the middle of nowhere. Here you will find the Mountains of Heaven, the Door of Hell, and the Seven Pearls of Shing.

An enormous area in the center of the Eurasian continent – larger than India at 1.5 million square miles – the “Five Stans” of Central Asia were once part of the Soviet Union. Now independent, each is different, fascinating in its own way.  While most all world travelers dream of visiting all five, few do.  What’s more, those few that do rarely experience the coolest places in each.

That’s what we’re going to do in September.  Ready?  Here we go.  And, okay – this is the Door to Hell:

summer-pt-retreat[Just wanted to make sure you saw this.  We have room for only one, possibly two more couples.  Carpe diem!]

What are you doing this Fourth of July?  You may be spending it with friends and family, of course.

But if not, consider that it’s on a Wednesday this year, the middle of the week, so you may be able to get the week off.  If so, how about celebrating the Fourth with your fellow TTPers in the most enchanting – and safest – country in Europe?

You first learned about Portugal’s history and why Rebel and I call it California in Europe back in January 2014.  We held three TTP Retreats there in that year and it’s time we had one again.

In the years since, Portugal has been discovered as the coolest “must-see” destination in all Europe.  That’s because Portugal has got everything.  Fabulous climate, beaches, food, wine, history, charm up the yingyang, and the sweetest, nicest people in Europe.

This is an intimate get-together of no more than a dozen TTPers to discuss the world in depth with me.  And I might as well give you a warning up front.

In addition to learning more about the world than you thought possible in under a week, you run the risk of falling head over heels in love with Portugal.  I describe it as utterly captivating, and once you are there you’ll easily understand why.

PRESIDENT TRUMP JUST SIGNED THE DEATH WARRANT OF THE MULLAH REGIME

May 8, 2018

May 8, 2018

You’re looking at the death warrant of the Mullah regime in Iran. It’s the final green light given to the Iranian people to overthrow the rulers they hate.

Iran’s economy is right on the brink.  The new sanctions – which the President will enforce with a hammer, right on all the Euroweenie (particularly German) companies doing business the Tehran Terror Master – will push it into the abyss.

The protest movement – growing silently and spreading widely – will quickly become too massive to contain.  Regular soldiers, Pasdaran (Revolutionary Guards), and even Basij (paramilitaries) are joining the protests – or refusing to attack them –  in droves.

We are witness to an astounding moment in modern history.  This month, May 2018, will see the simultaneous solving of the two greatest world threats, that of North Korea and Mullah Iran.  And peacefully, without war.

Rather than horrific war with South Korea or possibly nuclear war with the US, the President has made offers China’s Xi and North Korea’s Kim can’t and won’t refuse.  All three will be standing on the awards podium in Oslo to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.

The Mullah Regime will now implode, collapse upon itself, without an outward explosion of war with its neighbors – much like the fate of the Soviet Union.  The revolt of the Iranian people will have bloody moments – hopefully not many – but the Mullahs are doomed.

That this has been accomplished by a man upon whom the Left and Deep State has waged savage, relentless, and morally despicable war since his election is virtually miraculous.  Anyone who now denies the extraordinary genius of this man  is willfully and perversely blinding himself to the obvious.

We are in the midst of a truly historic presidency.  Take time to savor it.  And take time to watch, then read, below the President’s brilliantly courageous speech yesterday (5/08), followed by the text of the statement he signed.

HALF-FULL REPORT 05/04/18

escape-the-plantation Welcome to the Mayday HFR.  Fortuitously timed with this being the week of May Day, May 1st – or as TTP calls it, Commie Day.

Mayday is the international signal of distress that been in use since the 1920s.  For that is the HFR’s theme this week.

Listen – can you hear it?  Vast swarms of Fascist Lefties, from Washington DC to Mexifornia, from Democrats on Capitol Hill to Social Justice Warriors throughout the land, are screaming “Mayday! Mayday! Mayday!” in panic and terror.  The sound is simply Schadenfreudelicious.

They are screaming about so many things causing them to lose their minds that it will take a while to cover them – so let’s get going…

COMMIE DAY

What May Day should be, happy and joyous

What May Day should be, happy and joyous

What Commies and the Fascist Left have done to May Day

What Commies and the Fascist Left have done to May Day

Berlin, Germany.  For millennia, especially here in Europe, the First of May was a happy, joyful celebration of life after winter, with dancing around a Maypole and crowning a pretty girl with flowers as Queen of May.

I grew up in California. When we were kids, my sisters would always get up early to pick flowers, and leave them in a basket at the front door for Mom, our family’s Queen of May.

Today is a national holiday in Germany, as it is in over 30 other countries in Europe and dozens of other countries around the world.  But not as May Day.

Instead, it’s called International Workers Day.  Since it was the invention of Communists in 1889, it should be called Commie Day.  Only Communists could take an innocent celebration of springtime and turn it into celebration of murder, terrorism, hate, and envy.

Here’s the story.  It begins not in Europe but in America.

CINCO DE FARSA

john-wayne-advice-to-jwThere’s a story of an American at a bar in Mexico City.  After a couple of Dos Equis with the locals, he asks them, “Amigos, there’s something I don’t understand – I love Mexico, it’s beautiful, full of natural resources, people work hard, so why is Mexico so poor?”

One of the locals smirks and says, “Why that’s easy – it’s because you gringos stole half our land.”  The American takes a tug on his beer and says, “Really?”  The local responds, “Yes, and what’s worse – you gringos stole the half with all the paved roads!”

Overmorrow this Saturday, millions of us gringos will celebrate May 5th.  Yet Cinco de Mayo is a phony tradition, a joke on los Norteamericanos, then exploited as a marketing gimmick by Mexican restaurant chains as an excuse for us to get wasted on Jose Cuervo.

So at TTP, our tradition on May 5th is to explain la verdad, the truth, so you’ll understand why it should be called Cinco de Farsa, The Fifth of Farce.

Which is, to begin with: Nobody in Mexico cares about May 5th.  Only we, us gringos, pretend to.  For if you ask just about any reveler at the nearest Pancho Villa’s Cantina or some such Mexican-themed bar anywhere in the US, just what is being celebrated on May 5th, you’ll get either a blank stare or "It’s their July 4th " ignorance.

So first the true history of Mexico.  You’ll learn more about Mexico’s history in ten minutes than you ever did in school or anywhere else.

Then the reality today — the horrific truth of how treasonous Dem fascists and their useful idiot Rino masochists are using Mexico to destroy their own country.

THE WORLD’S WORST IMPERIALISM

danger-minesGolan Heights, Israel.  Today, April 17, is Israel’s Memorial Day, when all Israelis pay homage to those who died fighting to preserve Israel’s freedom and very existence.

At precisely 11am, sirens sound for two minutes.  Everyone in the entire country stops whatever they are doing to stand silently in this homage.  This includes anyone driving on the streets and roads.  Cars and trucks stop wherever they are, people get out to stand silently on the road.  We stood here on the Golan Heights.

We looked down upon the Hula Valley, where Syrians aimed their artillery, mortars, rockets, and sniper rifles upon the farmers below in their fields and villages.  The snipers would even fire into the windows of homes to murder men, women, and children inside.

There is a profound lesson here to be learned for America, for we – indeed all of Western Civilization, formerly and what should still be known as Christendom – is threatened by the world’s worst imperialism in the history of mankind.

AMERICA AT MASADA

masada-israelMasada, Israel. The story of Masada is one of epic heroism. At Israel’s creation in 1948, its founders were determined to create a paradigm shift in how Jews looked upon themselves.  Here is where they found it.

For centuries Jews had passively accepted their fate of being murderously discriminated against.  Now they had to see themselves as warriors willing to fight or die for their freedom.  The epic heroism of Masada provided the perfect historical basis for such a paradigm shift, with every Israeli schoolchild imbued with it from kindergarten on.

No more pogroms, no more Jews lying down and taking it.  Like the heroes of Masada, Jews were now to be feared and respected for their absolute determination to defend themselves against evil and ruthless enemies.

It’s a lesson America has to learn and take to heart today.

A TWO-FER TODAY

1985-jw-interview-photoIt’s April 5, way too late for April Fools.  So when I got two big surprises this morning, I knew they were for real.

First, there’s a fabulous photo essay on my Himalaya Helicopter Expedition in the Daily Mail, the most widely-read English language news site in the world.

Second, a friend just sent me a video that has recently appeared on YouTube – of an interview of me back in 1985, 33 years ago!  I had no idea this existed and had never seen it before this morning.

I had just returned from Africa with the RENAMO freedom fighters in Mozambique, and the Jamba Conference in guerrilla-held Angola that formed an alliance between Anti-Soviet Freedom Fighters around the world.

My first reaction watching it was, wow, I sure looked younger then and had a lot more hair!  Next I noticed how relevant what I said – especially about the State Department – was to today.

INDIAN TIBET

tibetan-trumpetsWhen most people think of Tibet, they think of Chinese-Occupied Tibet, which the Chicoms seized in the 1950s, committing genocidal slaughter of two million Tibetans in the process.

Today, the former independent country of Tibet is a Tibetan Theme Park for Chinese tourists, locked down tight by the Chinese military, and secret police who control all the monasteries.

Yet there are regions of ethnic, cultural, and geographical Tibet that China was not able to seize.  One of them, The Kingdom of Lo, tucked away in a tiny hidden  corner of Nepal, we go to on our Himalaya Helicopter Expeditions.   

Larger than Lo is the Upper Indus River Valley as it flows out of Chinese Tibet into the remotest part of northwest India.  The region of the Upper Indus and surrounding side valleys is called Ladakh.  It is wholly Tibetan – here you will find real Tibetan culture truly alive and thriving, replete with astoundingly spectacular Tibetan monasteries or gompas.

I took the photo above at the Spituk gompa – the river in the foreground is the Upper Indus, and the snow-capped mountains in the distance are in Chinese Tibet.  It’s near the capital of Ladakh, Leh – an endlessly fascinating caravanserai town where you’ll find everything Tibetan.  Here’s the ancient Leh Palace and the Leh gompa hovering high above:

HALF-FULL REPORT 03/30/18

good-fridayWelcome to the Good Friday HFR!

Kind of weird to wake up on this particular morning to see the Drudge headline:  Pope has declared there’s no Hell.

While the Vatican quickly claimed he was misquoted (a typical politician’s non-denial denial) –  not a “faithful transcription of the words of the Holy Father” – nonetheless, it may reopen investigation that this papacy is illegitimate.

You may recall from the Happy New Year HFR three months ago (12/29/17) the substantive accusations of Obama engineering a papal coup:

*March 8, 2017: According to Archbishop of the Catholic Church Luigi Negri, Obama conspired with George Soros in a plot to force Pope Benedict XVI to resign in 2013 and replace him with a Marxist Pope.

 

*January 22, 2017: Catholic newspaper The Remnant issues an open letter to President Trump pleading that he open an investigation of the “Vatican regime change [from Benedict to Francis] engineered by the Obama Administration.”

 

There’s no question that, as The Remnant states, Francis embraces “the radical ideological agenda of the international left.”  He is a leader of the Cult of Global Warming, and advocates the open borders agenda of George Soros – even to the point of, on Christmas Eve last Sunday (12/24/17), comparing Joseph and Mary’s trek to Bethlehem with the migrations of millions of Moslems to Europe and Mexican illegals to America.

Then again, it’s been kind of a weird week all around.  For example:
