bolton-quote Dear John,

You’re going to preside over the imminent Iran policy debate, and I’m sure you’ll do it the way we used to do it in the Reagan White House: bring the president the fullest possible picture of the disagreements among the Cabinet secretaries, and then he decides.

He’ll undoubtedly ask what you think, and I hope you tell him that the Iran deal is beside the point -- that we need a real policy to bring down the regime of the Islamic Republic.

Many smart people think the deal can be fixed, but we know based on past experience that this is highly unlikely. They are full of surprises.

The Iranians and their allies have a long history of successful deception when it comes to nuclear weapons. As the Washington Post said some years ago, if you want to stop the Iranian nuclear weapons program, you need regime change.

That means a Reagan Doctrine for Iran.



epa-control-over-riversWho said this?

“The EPA is one of the most toxic places in the federal government to work. If you don’t get rid of the toxicity of the employees at the EPA, we are doing a great disservice to this country. I have serious questions about [the EPA administrator’s] ability to actually administrate.”

No, those remarks aren’t from one of EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s many critics on the Left.

They’re the words of former House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), who held several congressional hearings in 2016 to investigate egregious cases of misconduct and mismanagement under the leadership of Gina McCarthy, President Obama’s last EPA chief.

Since official Washington is consumed with Pruitt’s every move, perhaps it’s time to take a little trip down pre-Trump Memory Lane—when all was right in the world, according to incurious elite media—and jolt the faulty memories of these hyperventilating talking heads and editorial boards who insist Pruitt should be fired for spending 50 bucks a night to rent a D.C. condo.

Gina McCarthy should share a place of ignominy in the Obama Hall of Shame, right alongside IRS commissioner John Koskinen, FBI Director James Comey, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. She is impossibly corrupt – and here are the examples.



fbi-was-warnedThe FBI, bluntly, is a mess. The level of incompetence mixed with bias is stunning. If the FBI were a private corporation, it would either be in Chapter 11 or fighting off stockholder rebellion or both.

Unfortunately, however, it's our most important law enforcement agency,

Its litany of incompetence is extraordinary -- completely missing the Boston Marathon and Pulse night club terror murderers when they were staring them in the face, grotesquely overlooking the Parkland schools mass killer when his violent psychosis should have been apparent to anyone with a 3-digit IQ,  are but three recent catastrophes on their watch.

As for the bias part, well, that is what is being uncovered.  The extent of it, it is easy to predict, will be great.  It already is.

We have already seen how dishonest the organization is, how desperately they are hiding facts from the public. Documents have to be pried out with a crowbar. The stonewalling is endless, the numbers of self-serving redactions myriad and seemingly rote.  It is anti-democratic in the extreme.



In 1914, just over a century ago, the average American worker had to work about three hours to buy a bushel of wheat. Today it takes five minutes.

The real (inflation-adjusted) price of aluminum is now about one-fifth of what it was in 1914. These ongoing, real price declines are characteristic of almost every agricultural and industrial commodity.  And that is going to now accelerate, because:

The Trump administration has been undertaking a massive deregulation effort in order to get rid of regulations that are counterproductive and do not meet reasonable cost-benefit tests. This will reduce the direct regulatory expenses made by government but will cause a far larger reduction in private business and personal expenses made to support regulations.



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:



proof-of-stable-genius The proof is in this picture, published by the official government news agency of Communist China, Xinhua, yesterday, March 28 – and in the article accompanying it:  Xi Jinping, Kim Jong-Un Hold Talks in Beijing.”

You’re welcome to wade through it with all the Orwellian Commie-

speak, but here’s the money quote:

Kim said: "The DPRK is willing to have dialogue with the United States and hold a summit of the two countries. The issue of denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula can be resolved, if South Korea and the United States respond to our efforts with goodwill, create an atmosphere of peace and stability while taking progressive and synchronous measures for the realization of peace."
Is there any sentient being who can’t see that this is the doing solely and completely of POTUS-VSG Trump?  Okay, libtards driven wacko with Trump Hatred are excluded from being sentient.

Little more than a year ago (4/21/17), TTP told you, “How Donald Trump And Xi Jinping Can Earn The Nobel Peace Prize Solving North Korea.”  Well, here we are.



And McCabe and Rice and Power and Strzok and Ohr and Mueller and….

And McCabe and Rice and Power and Strzok and Ohr and Mueller and….

On March 17, ex-CIA Director John Brennan tweeted about the current president of the United States: “When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. . . . America will triumph over you.”

That outburst from the former head of the world’s premier spy agency seemed a near threat to a sitting president, and former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power tweeted that it probably was: “Not a good idea to p… off John Brennan.”

If there is such a thing as a dangerous “deep state” of elite but unelected federal officials who feel that they are untouchable and unaccountable, then John Brennan is the poster boy.

Brennan’s record of lies, perjuries, distortions and self-serving flip-flops have gone on for years.  Many believe he is the architect of the Trump-Russia Collusion hoax.  Brennan is typical of the careerist deep state.  Then again, so are James Clapper, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and so many, many others.



poster-boy-for-whats-wrongThe profane egomaniac whom the Left-media are worshiping at the moment, David Hogg, is the poster boy for the ungracious monsters who characterize a portion of Generation Z, those youngsters born after 2000.

This is the generation that has been the most seriously indoctrinated with leftist ideology rather than actual education.  Like the majority of teachers and professors who have indoctrinated Hogg's generation – one of whom is his mother – Hogg feels justified maligning anyone who disagrees with him.

The kid is such a gutter-mouth jerk, such a despicable role model, and yet the Left media cannot get enough of him.

Follow the money.

It’s a strange political fact, but nearly every major anti-gun group has been a front group.  By contrast, the NRA is maligned 24/7 and yet it’s completely obvious whom it represents.

Despite the efforts to tie the NRA to everyone from firearms manufacturers to the Russians (if you can’t tie any random Republican thing to the Russians these days, you won’t be working at the Washington Post or CNN for very long), it represents its five million members.

Anti-gun groups tend to represent shadowy networks. The one consistent thing about anti-gun groups is that that they are usually the opposite of what their name says they are.

March for Our Lives is on every cable channel, but who runs it? The photogenic teen fronts are out front. But it’s obvious to everyone that a bunch of teen-agers in high school don’t have the resources and skills to coordinate a nationwide movement. Instead it’s the experienced activists who are actually running things.
