    Expect quick market rebounds, very good long term economic benefits. Just lessening the bureaucratic meddling in business decisions will be an enormous boost for British influenced markets.

    God Bless the 52%. May others follow their wise & patriotic path.

    At least a partial return to sanity is surely welcome.

    Buying opportunity! Traditional Britain, running her own affairs, was one of the most successful ethnic achievement stories in human history. She is infinitely better off without the anchor of the EU bureaucracy--infinitely. (Just as America, without the flood of incongruous folk coming over the Southern Border, and without 80% of the Federal Bureaucracy, would be infinitely better off.

    52% of the British voters rejected the false internationalist narrative. That is hardly something to panic over.

    God Bless the at least partial reawakening! His truth is triumphant!

    There'll always be an England, And England shall be free If England means as much to you As England means to me

    In the special English edition of Deanna Durbin's "Nice Girl," a 1941 movie, she sings the song in a very moving rendition. I would hope that English patriots managed to play it over the airwaves during the campaign--that is if the powers that control the British airways would allow an expression of that sort.

    While no excuse can be made for the doctrinaire idiots pushing the war on law enforcement in Baltimore; the ultimate blame for what has been tearing up the community must be placed on President Obama. He has repeatedly fanned incident after incident into a confrontation designed to dampen the morale of American law enforcement, since taking office.

    It is very difficult to believe that the intention is an innocent concern for individual rights. The innocent spectator, concerned with individual rights, will at least sometimes weigh in on the side of the Police. That is not the pattern we have seen for 7 years & five months.

    It has always been a given: The Leftist, whether merely a theorist or activist, is primarily driven by hatred. They tend to hate their parents for starters; but it is a hatred of reality in general that motivates people to try to promote a cloud-borne fantasy world.

    Now that is how people like the Clinton's get involved with the hard Left. But it does not stop them from also developing greed. Mrs. Clinton is not only the worst liar ever to run for President of the United States; not just the furthest Left to ever run on a major party ticket; she is also probably the most greedy. (Not the best combination.)

    The big lie--so long as it was repeated often enough--was the mainstay of both the Bolshevik and Nazi off-shoots of Marxist pseudo-philosophy. Between them, the two great Utilitarian monolithic movements destroyed the lives, aspirations & achievements of tens of millions of civilian victims.

    What, here, is even worse than the total lack of respect for the reality that is actual Truth, is the underlying cruelty of a mindset that would disarm you law abiding fellow countrymen, at a time when there is increasing social turmoil in our midst; and the open border has allowed-actually promoted--the entrance of a swarm of folk who have no sense of community with native Americans; no sense of common values or common history with native Americans; rather, in many instances, folk full of demonstrated hatred for native Americans.

    No one with a conscience can advocate disarming potential victims of criminal aggression; forcing them to live in fear of what may immediately follow. This would be so, even if a well armed citizenry had not always been a basic right & goal of American culture. (The Right & Duty To Keep & Bear Arms.)

    Such fundamental indifference, both to Constitutional intent & critical personal needs, says an enormous lot about the moral character, as well as the level of compassion among those in the Obama/Clinton political circle.

    Those two not so worthy publications, when compared to more estimable journals a couple of generations back, demonstrate a form of cultural inequality to be sure.

    I have a friend who thinks Brooks is basically Conservative; but I suspect if that were so, he would not be connected with the Times, unless to sell advertising to businesses.

    But this piece is fairly bland--and while not really Conservative, is thought provoking.

  • Paul Ryan Just BETRAYED Trump After Teaming Up With THIS Liberal!

    Ohioan to Robert DeLong
    One suspects that Ryan's Republican constituents would really prefer to put America First. Here is what they should consider, if he persists in this betrayal:

    Whatever ambiguity some may claim as to the Constitutional intent on other issues, there is absolute clarity as to the functional intent with respect to one overriding issue. That issue, the primary issue in the 2016 Presidential campaign is clearly to determine whom the new President will have the duty to serve; whose interests must be honored; which people must be favored. To address this issue, we start with the stated purpose of the Constituion--the avowed intent of the framers--the ratified intent of the subscribing States--the Preamble:

    We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

    "The people" to define the purpose & function of the Constitution, were beyond any question, the people of the specific ratifying States, in 1787 to 1791. "Justice" can sometimes be rather an abstract concept, but "domestic tranquility," obviously is our domestic tranquility, not the promotion of anything abroad, not calling for meddling with other peoples lives. (Nor will reviewing the specific grants of power that follow, suggest any non-American focus or purpose for either.)

    The "common defence," both from the obvious context, as well as the specific grants of function that follow, is clearly the common protection of the people of the 13 sovereign States that ratified; as, indeed, the "general Welfare" is that generally beneficial of those same specific peoples.

    Finally, with unmistakable clarity, is the language that identifies who precisely are to be the beneficiaries of the secured "Blessings of Liberty": The Founders & their "posterity"; the lineal descendants of those specific peoples; the descendants of the Founders, down through the generations.

    Is anything in this interpretation, even arguable? Does this statement of intent waffle in anyway, as an indication of whose interest is to be favored on any Constitutional question that involves Americans on the one hand, and any other people under the sun? Is there anything in this that suggests a duty to allow any other people a right--that is a Constitutional right to demand entrance into America; or to demand anything from the American Government under a claim of legal or moral right?

    Now granted, a great many of us, our selves included, trace our ancestry to those who came after the Constitutional Union was established. Thus, our personal rights of participation grow out of acceptance into those communities Blessed with that secured Liberty in the various States. They do not, by anything in the Constitution, create a departure from the Constitutional purpose or concept. Nor can anyone, in office, claim a moral right to alter the intent & functional purpose, he has sworn to uphold, on his own initiative.

    Those Republicans, such as Speaker Ryan, who wring their hands in the public media, over Donald Trump's sometimes blunt ways of explaining alternatives, may try to cloud these points. They cannot rebut them if we stick to the obvious. If you honor Constitutional intent, in all things relating to the behavior of the American Government, you must always put America & the Americans first.

    When challenged, the unapologetic Conservative American should simply return to the basic concept!

    Yet note: Nothing, in what we have written, will prevent anyone, who feels a calling to preach their Faith to the people of another land; or to become a medical missionary in some far off country; or to pursue any particular calling or interest anywhere on earth; from doing so. All it does, is define what one can do with respect to the resources, functional duties, powers and policy imperatives, entrusted to the Government of the Unites States.

    That is the point. And properly argued, it is the key to victory--to Donald Trump's victory & to America's victory!

    My intent was far beyond just a passing "comment." My point is to demonstrate a comprehensive attack plan, with enough detail to protect one deciding to follow the plan from getting figuratively sucker punched by some ideological adversary. I have the advantage over most people of having studied the techniques of the Left in Academia in my youth, and have some understanding of lines of attack against which they have no answer--at least no rational answer.

    The approach advocated is one that will leave them sputtering--if properly supported--because it is not only logically sound; it deliberately ignores their "politically correct" bias, to an extent that will leave most of them sputtering.

    The principle is easily understood, with reasonable mathematical certainty. The greater the ratio in favor of the law abiding citizens, between the armed law abiders, and the armed criminals, the safer the law abiding public. It is not difficult to understand, but the whole Leftist establishment gobbles the insanity of disarming the law abiders.

    I received the same thing, and answered him with a clear attribution of who was endangering Republican control of Congress. (No, I am sure it will not be read by the Speaker; but maybe he got other hostile retorts and that the response, cumulatively will give him some pause.)

    We need to teach Paul a lesson. He has, indeed, become perhaps the greatest impediment to success by Republicans this fall--and we need to take every opportunity to stress that point. Either he backs down from the deceit and perfidy or we must persist. His position is too great a platform for mischief for us to tolerate the mischief.

    This woman, who totally lacks empathy--the great virtue of most of her sex--shows once again her arrogant disregard of truth & reason.

    The truth is that public safety works dynamically in a manner very similar to the way the free market works. The more people who are positively involved--accepting responsibility for their own well being--the better the result. Thus the well armed Swiss have had less crime through the generations, than almost any other European people. Thus George Washington, who had a great grasp of human social interaction; tried to get Congress to adopt the Swiss system, of arming teenaged boys in the home with military grade small arms. Washington cared. Hillary just demagogues.

    Or consider the arrogant verbal sop that Mrs. Clinton offered to now impoverished coal miners in West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky & Pennsylvania. They would be retrained with Federal funds, so they could move somewhere else for jobs that did not exist in their rooted communities! Think of the absolute lack of empathy.

    Mrs. Clinton simply does not care--she cavalierly has moved around in her pursuit of power. But some of us--indeed many Americans from the first settlement--have put our roots down in communities which we found culturally compatible. Some of us are not indifferent "citizens of the world." But I suspect this despicable imitation of a sympathetic woman, simply does not care. She--like the never Trump Republican poseurs--is interested in feathering her own pursuits, and will not refrain from any tactic, however morally reprehensible, that she believes will further her self-serving "mission."

    I do not intend to go anywhere to please the dysfunctional whipped cur Republicans, who seem to be begging for the "Politically correct" bullies to reassert their control over public discourse in America. Donald Trump--even when he comes across as needlessly brusque--is an absolute breath of fresh air, after the past twenty-four years of attempted thought control.

    We can win this battle, both in the Party and in November, if we fight boldly, but intelligently; recognizing the tremendous disadvantage of those who can only prevail, when the media goes all in with the "Big Lie," techniques that enslaved first Russia & then Germany in the 20th Century. The answer to the big lie, has always been the drumbeat like insistence on an endlessly reiterated truth.

    The best way to deal with this perfidy is the same way we must deal with the opposition in November. Keep the primary focus on the over-riding issue of the campaign: Putting America & the Americans first. Why? Because if correctly pushed, it puts the would-be saboteurs on the spot, and forces them to retreat.

    Well argued, there is very little, if any, wiggle room, for those who attack Trump as being too harsh on ethnic issues. All office holders must take an oath to support the Constitution, and the Constitution is very clear, with respect to its American First intent. Consider the Preamble:

    We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

    The EU Bureaucracy has been warring on the cultural heritages--the multi-generational social achievements--of the nations of Europe. One may certainly hope--and indeed pray--that the nations of Great Britain will not be persuaded to abandon their proud heritages by the threat of a temporary market sell-off. There is far more at stake here, than the immediate effect on the stock market.

    Agreed. Anyone who respects the cultural achievements & heritages of the British nations, should pray that the patriots prevail. The ultimate issues are much the same as those in the coming election here.

    The Left prattles, gobbles & babbles about "Diversity." Yet it is clear from their actions that they actually mean to destroy it. There can be no other explanation for the incessant push for immigration policies that undermine the continuity of the cultures native to Western homelands.

    George Washington also urged Congress to adopt the Swiss system, of arming teenaged boys in the home, with military grade weapons. And in doing so, he carefully explained both the social benefit and the psychological benefits to the boys, themselves. (The Founders explained their reasoning. They did not rely on slogans and thirty second sound bites.)

    And just what is your point? If Trump with almost five months to go, after starting from scratch, has already achieved over 38% of the vote, again in a multi-candidate race, he is very well positioned to win a landslide in November.

    His principal opponent is very vulnerable. The strongest third party candidate, Johnson, who will siphon of some of Mrs. Clinton's vote, is likewise very vulnerable on the primary issue of the campaign. Neither Mrs. Clinton nor Mr. Johnson, put America & the Americans First. As that clarion call goes forward, they will fall even as Donald Trump surges. The one hope that either has, are the antics of the Paul Ryans. We do need to deal with those.

    Day after day, hand-winging over perfectly reasonable Trump statements, tells us far more about Ryan, and nothing whatsoever about Trump, other than the fact that Donald has demonstrated the intellectual nakedness of what has passed for a consensus on social values inside the "Beltway."

    Again, a personal disclaimer. We used to like Ryan; were delighted when Romney chose him in 2012. But integrity will not allow us to remain passive, while this deceitful pretense of objective "fairness," undermines the hopes of tens of millions of Americans for an American tomorrow.

    Ryan, clearly, does not understand--or does not care about--the duty to put "America First"; clearly rejects the idea that having sworn to defend the Constitution, his duty in applying the resources of the United States Government, is to favor the citizens of the United States over foreign interests, great and small.

    If Ryan wants to help those of other nations--whether materially, spiritually or whatever; he can do so on his own time, with his own resources. But when he acts under the Constitution of the United States, he cannot be neutral as between native Americans and those who regardless of their motives seek to come here. The Constitutional intention in granting Congress power over immigration was totally for America's benefit--regardless of the weak intellectual broth on the base of the Statue.

    We are trying to avoid harsh adjectives; trying to leave the door open for Paul Ryan to drop the sanctimony; drop sabotaging a true revival of American spirit, and join our cause. But enough is more than enough, here, Paul! You are not making the impression that you think you are, on anyone who can still reason.

    The writer gets close, but misses the ultimate point. The compulsive attack on discriminating-i.e. making rational decisions between alternatives, which is actually the very essence of liberty--is actually based on a deeper, foundational compulsion: A Compulsion For Uniformity.

    The Left has bought into this as the basis for a new world order, as well as a nuance of the Jacobin/Marxist/Bolshevik/Nazi fallacy. They are desperate that the world's now well over a billion Muslems, not become an impediment to that new world order.

    This is a gross over-simplification, but it goes to the essential point, without the need for a several million word, multi volume dissertation on examples of the grossest injustices done to many along the path in pursuit of the evil objective. Understanding the damage done to many groups as well as individuals, by the cult like frenetic efforts to suppress "discrimination," helps get to the bottom of this. So is understanding the frenetic pursuit of Diversity, which is actually a way to destroy the natural diversity of the species..

    Of course, the greatest damage that has resulted from this compulsion often falls on those that are imagined to be the beneficiary of the antics. No group needs compulsion driven "friends," desperate to suppress understanding of the real factors in any situation. What is destroying the West are the perfectly predictable results of fantasy & compulsion driven projects.

    I do not think that those the Times denotes as "Native Americans," lumping together a considerable array of quite diverse tribal nations, many of which fought long & bravely against Americans who over-ran their hunting grounds; will find Donald Trump's poking fun at Elizabeth Warren, as offensive, if at all, as they will find the patronization by the New York Times.

    Goldwater did not lose by being Goldwater. He had pulled even with Kennedy before the assassination, and was on track to win. Unfortunately, when JFK was shot, the Republicans allowed LBJ a six month honeymoon, out of sympathy, before they started the real campaign to unseat him. That, and the nuclear war scare ads buried Goldwater's chances. (Incidentally, LBJ falsely ran as a Conservative in the upper South.)

    I was very much involved in the Goldwater campaign from early December, 1960 through November 3rd, 1964. This was something we lived day by day. I do not need to read what someone else said about it in a book.

    Ryan changes the dialogue from day to day, yet keeps the dialogue going--confirming a point that I have made, that he is trying to keep his dissent in the news day by day, in order to maximize the damage that he can do. This tactic is obvious to anyone who understands propaganda techniques.

    He now admits, in effect, that Trump may be able to do, what he says he will do, legally. But he still wrings his hands verbally, for the precise effect that I have described.

    Look, there is one effective way to counter this nonsense. It is by far the most effective way, and that is to challenge Paul Ryan as to whether or not he is willing to comply with the obvious intent of the Founders in the Constitution, and that is that all Federal Office Holders put the interests of America and the Americans first? All of Ryan's babbling over Trump's comments dealing with immigration or ethnicity, imply that he is not willing to put Americans first.

    One does not have to be anti-Mexican or anti-Moslem--not in the slightest--to still stand with Trump in putting American interests ahead of any foreign interest. It is impossible to not see that, if you read the Constitution in context, including the Preamble:

    We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

    Trump has the winning issue. He just needs to stay the course. If he stands fast on the primary issue--putting America & the Americans first--he will crush those (the whipped cur Republicans & Democratic regulars) who want to give their heritage away.

    Anyone who reads the Constitution in context, along with the Preamble [We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.]

    will see that the whole function is to serve a specific people, America & the Americans, divided--and also distinct--in our honored State cultures; but certainly together in our entitlements to a Federal Government that serves us, not some fantasy of a consolidated humanity. (Make no mistake, "One world" is a humanity united in bondage; where all lose the cultural achievements of the ages--achievements that reflect what is unique in each people.)

    If we will just confront those who apologize for America, and demand that they explain why they will not put America first--when it is clearly their sworn duty;--it will not take the almost five months remaining till the election, to have the rats scurrying for the intellectual sewers.

    Obama is the one who is making a mockery of the Congressional role with respect to immigration, etc.. Trump, as I understand, was simply citing language in the present naturalization act.

    Ryan's hypocrisy is very clear from his virtually daily need to attack Trump; whereas he hammered through all that Obama wanted to spend, in last year's appropriations bill.

    I am trying to keep my comments civil, in respect for Ryan's position. But he needs to stop this deliberate sabotage--and stop it once and for all. The double standard employed to sabotage your own side is at best insane.

    The way to handle this ridiculous pretender is not to humor him in the slightest.

Do you dare, as one benefiting from American achievement, consider it bigoted to put the people you have sworn to serve, 'first!?'" Etc. Followed of course by a brisk listing of ways the rooted population has been stabbed in the back by the Obama Administration.

    Anyone see any good comeback from the gobbling Senator? I can certainly polish up the approach, but think it effective, even in first draft form.

    If Kirk apologizes for making a mistake, I would drop the attack. Otherwise? Well he has made his own bed.

    Any Brit, who would betray 12 or so centuries of achievement, because of something a nut did nor did not shout, a week before a very important vote, does not deserve to share in any thing derived from those centuries of achievement.

    Conservatives need to attack by demanding a sense of proportion. The same is true both on the European continent, and even more clearly in the coming American election.

    No one, with a sense of proportion, who has any speck of intelligence & decency--admittedly a combination if decline in our times--can fail to see how absurd this event is as a reason to surrender a proud heritage.

    People who care about the survival of the British Nations, in any recognizable form, need to confront the exploitation of this murder, head on. Give it a day's rest, but tomorrow across the the British Isles, take up the cause of cultural liberty, as never before. There is just too much at stake for patriots, in any land, to allow themselves to be shut up.

    Those that value the past thousand or so years of British ethnic achievements; the cultural heritage of some of the world's greatest achievers, need to express sorrow for a murder committed by a mentally unhinged man, and get back to discussing the intolerable betrayal in allowing a bureaucracy in Brussels to try to remake the cultural heritages of the British nations.

    Will, as in the song, for example, "there always be an England," in the land still identified with the English. It is extremely doubtful, if they surrender their future to foreign bureaucrats, who have O.K.'d--even demanded the whole-sale acceptance of foreign peoples, for permanent settlement in Europe's national homelands.

    Patriots of every nation need to recognize that there is an intellectually sterile, but compulsion driven international movement, that is gnawing at the vitals of the Western peoples today. Hopefully, with God's Help, they will somehow find a way to repel this despicable betrayal of the achievements of the centuries.

    The answer, as each of the turkeys makes some form of the same announcement, between here and the election, should be a forceful comment to the effect that those who have compromised their loyalty & duty, simply cannot accept the Constitutional mandate to put "America & the Americans, first."

    That is clearly what any reading of the Constitution, in context, starting with the very clear statement of purpose (the Preamble) requires.

    As the Quislings make their disavowal, we need to answer with endless iterations & reiterations of the truth. The clearer that issue becomes, the stronger our campaign. There may be room on this earth for the day dream fantasies of internationalists--the pipe dreams of humanists desperately wanting their own version of the Tower at Babel. There can be no place for them in a Government sworn to preserve the liberty of an American posterity. None!!
