The President and First Lady arrive in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, May 20, 2017

The President and First Lady arrive in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, May 20, 2017

President Donald Trump has a plan to defeat radical Islamic terrorism off the battlefield, judging from the publicly available evidence.

The plan is simple, if extraordinarily ambitious: Reform Islam.

More specifically, the aim is to induce Muslim leaders to reject jihad and terrorism, and to embrace and promote a moderate practice of Islam.

Trump’s public calls for an end to Islamic terrorism made headlines, but largely unnoticed has been a larger and concerted plan to reform Islam by eliminating the root cause of such violence: the extremist ideology that fuels jihad.

The president called upon Muslim leaders to fundamentally reform Islam by rejecting terrorism and global jihad during his landmark speech in the Saudi capital of Riyadh on May 21, 2017.

“There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it,” the president insisted.  There are clear signs he is succeeding.  Here’s how.



pastor-brunson-trump-tweetWhen the Wicked Witch meets Dorothy in “The Wizard of Oz,” she demands the ruby red slippers the Kansas farm girl is wearing.  The Good Witch advises Dorothy otherwise. “Their magic must be very powerful or she wouldn’t want them so badly,” she says.

The Magnitsky Act is something like those ruby red slippers.

Originally passed by Congress in 2012 and named for the Russian accountant found dead in his jail cell after exposing fraud involving Russian officials, it authorized the president to block travel visas and freeze bank accounts of individual Russians deemed guilty of human-rights abuses.

In 2016 it was expanded so it could be applied to other human-rights abusers anywhere in the world. We know its power the same way we know about the power of Dorothy’s red slippers: The bad guys obsess about it.

Like Turkish Dictator Recip Erdogan, who’s feeling the heat of President’s Trump’s Americans First foreign policy of using the Magnitsky Act to force the freeing of Pastor Brunson.



Time to shut these three guys out of the game

Time to shut these three guys out of the game

You return from a great vacation and POW — reality hits like a punch in the nose.

The pain begins when you remember that the hapless Jeff Sessions is still the attorney general of the United States.

It sharpens with the realization that Rod Rosenstein, officially Sessions’ deputy but really the boss of the Justice Department and FBI, continues to get away with the biggest partisan heist of modern times.

Rosenstein is guilty of three main sins.  Here are all three, plus how Trump can trump all three with an ace in the hole.



gods-creatures-signYellowstone, Wyoming. Why are bison no longer endangered?

Yes, the park rangers here insist on calling them “bison” instead of buffalo.  They don’t appreciate being asked if Bill Cody should be renamed Bison Bill.

There are an estimated 5,000 bison in Yellowstone National Park owned by the government. An estimated almost 100 times as many, from 300,000 to 500,000, are in herds that are privately owned. A century ago, the bison was almost extinct in the United States, and only a few hundred were alive.

Bison, like chickens and cattle, are now abundant because private owners are allowed to own them and sell the meat for food, as well as other parts of the animals. That is, the owners have a strong economic incentive to raise many healthy animals.

The Trump administration has proposed reforms to the Endangered Species Act (ESA), which predictably has caused outrage among some self-identified environmentalists. Winding its way through the courts is The Case of the Invisible Frog — aka, the “dusky gopher frog.”

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?



see-the-differenceJim Acosta has the sadz.

The untalented little man who rudely shouts unimportant questions at important people while in the employ of the ninth most trusted name in news out of ten, got heckled at a Trump rally in Tampa, Florida. Sad panda. The hecklers chanted "CNN sucks," which, okay, is true, but they were none too polite about it.

Acosta didn't like it. He reported, "Honestly, it felt like we weren’t in America anymore."

But, like virtually everything Acosta reports, this is just a reflection of his small-minded biases. The fact is, having a group of people scream at you and denigrate you is exactly what it feels like to be in America — if you don't happen to be a coastal elite.

It has felt this way for the last twenty years at least. Every television show you watch, every movie, every woman's magazine, every comedian, and, yes, every news program tells you you suck. Your country sucks. Your culture sucks. Your religion and your morals suck. And you personally are one of those dumb racists who clings to his Bible and talks funny.

Every day. From every outlet. All the time. And now people are angry. Wonder why.



in-tonights-newsHaving thrown in its lot with #TheResistance, the media now faces its inevitable, if not actually imminent demise.

Jobs in the newspaper industry continue to disappear, as physical publishing becomes an increasingly unprofitable occupation and advertisers bail for greener pastures.

On television, ratings for the cellar-dwelling CNN—once the premier brand in the cable-news racket—are abysmal. Yet the network stubbornly persists with an outmoded formula designed to keep its dwindling audience in a state of perpetual dudgeon, with zero appeal to anyone not already converted to its Manichean worldview.

Once upon a time, a gig in the Washington bureau was the ne plus ultra of the reporting vocation, inhabited by middle-aged wise men, who spoke soberly and dressed the part, knowing that the brass ring of Dean of the Washington Press Corps could be theirs someday.

Today, a collection of small children, the legacy sons of other network personalities, and supermodels graces the sets and standups at the news networks, chirping away in mouthfuls of clichés and infantile pronouncements about the President.



locust-swarmThere is a scene in the 1996 movie Independence Day where the character (US President Whitmore played by Bill Pullman) mind-melds with the alien, and receives a sudden understanding of the peril the Earth is in.

“I saw... its thoughts. I saw what they're planning to do. They're like locusts. They're moving from planet to planet... their whole civilization. After they've consumed every natural resource they move on... and we're next.”

For some time now, I’ve thought this applies to the Left.  Certainly, entire fields of endeavor, entire expanses of human knowledge, science, and interest, seem to collapse in the wake of an infestation by the Left.

I used to think this happened because of the Left’s charming habit of hiring only on political conformity, and not on talent, intellectual ability or even interest in the field.

No, Leftists really are like locusts.  They can’t help destroying.
