    The little movie in this link: attempts a fusion of the thoughts of Eisenhower and Trump. Does it work? In the text below the link, I list Republican Peace Maker presidents whom I admire. Any comments? Are there any others I should have included? What Democrats deserve a mention as Peace Makers? Which Presidents have been the best Peace Makers?

    Nobody watching President Barack Obama talking to President Dmitry Medvedev to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and addressing a university audience could have failed to notice that Moscow was not a pre-Presidential election Berlin audience. The first was courteous, the second displayed no emotion and the third was cool. No chemistry there; added to which his visit was overshadowed by Michael Jackson's funeral. The main achievement was a missile deal that favoured Moscow, which did not go down well with his political opponents at home and has yet to receive the Senate's fiat. But there was also agreement reached to allow...

    What makes Trump a man of historic greatness is that he wakes up every morning and continues doing his job with strength in the face of the worst character assassination imaginable, led by the Corrupt Journalist Corps. He still booms the economy. He still dares and stares down China on tariffs and trade. He still shows North Korea that he will not be hoodwinked as Bill Clinton and Obama were by promises devoid of results. He stares down the Iranian Ayatollahs and tightens the vise, despite their bombastic threats and tactical efforts to get the weak-kneed, yellow-livered, gutless and cowardly...

    A leftover from last night via the Free Beacon. This is Democrats’ 2020 message in microcosm, no? Three years ago their riposte to Trump was “America Is Already Great,” a decent enough slogan for liberals invested in Obama’s presidency but an uneasy fit for progressives. A movement dedicated to social justice can’t acknowledge American greatness; to do so would risk encouraging complacency. Progress can only be achieved by relitigating America’s sins unto eternity.With the party having moved left and past Obama, Holder’s free to make that point more explicitly. He’s enough of a neoliberal himself to pull his punches...

    RUSH: Back to the phones to Richmond, Virginia. This is David. Great to have you, sir. Hi. CALLER: Hey, Rush. Im so glad you opened with Ocasio-Cortezs role in this Democrat debacle, cause she proves to continually be the gift that keeps on giving to conservatives who argue against socialism. And she does that whether it be through a lack of understanding of economic growth or a lack of understanding of government deficit spending or more recently, our ultimate fear as what socialists can lead to, is totalitarian government control. So I just love that she keeps giving us these...

    Who are the friends of America? Who are the real enemies who hate America to the core of its being? In trying to answer these questions, the usual distinctions between conservative and liberal dont apply anymore, especially since Donald Trump has been president. The idea of America is under assault today from those who inhabit quarters on both the Right and the Left. Trump has chosen to fight for Americas sovereignty and against the bloated beast of globalism, and that beast has champions on both sides of the traditional political aisle. Today, whether we realize it or not, the distinctions...

    On this Thanksgiving Day, I am thankful that America has a president, and the Free World a leader, who is the most admirable figure to hold this position in my lifetime. I've been of voting age in eleven presidential elections. I voted in most but not all of them. Usually both choices were uninspiring. Whom to pick, a dimbulb D.C. drudge (Ford) or a smarmy phony (Carter)? A charmless technocrat (Dukakis) or an establishment empty suit (Bush senior)? In 1992 I bought Slick Willie's act; the disillusion set in almost immediately after his inauguration. Bush junior and Obama were the...

    KYIV, UkraineHow do you measure Americas greatness? By the size of its economy, or the strength of its military? By the height of its city skylines, or the audacity of the moon landings? Perhaps, by the heroism of the Marines who landed on Iwo Jima, or of the Army soldiers who landed on Omaha Beach? Maybe. But Americas greatness is not always measured like in the movies or a campaign speech. Sometimes, an anonymous act of gratitude is proof enough, even if we, as Americans, dont always see it that way. In August, my wife, Lilya, and I were at...

    y old friend Ronald Radosh, writing in the Daily Beast about President Trumps recent United Nations speech, notes, there was a critical word tucked into Donald Trumps U.N. speech . . . that word is sovereignty and we should all understand what the president means when he invokes it. I agree, let us understand what he means. What is sovereignty? I wrote a 450-page book on the subject (Sovereignty or Submission: Will Americans Rule Themselves or be Ruled by Others?) but in the end it all comes down to two words: who decides? Who decides a nations tax policy, foreign...

    Hitler once said, "He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future." Totalitarians like Hitler and Lenin knew that any opposition by the population to their policies would be erased in a couple of generations if they could capture the minds of young people. Hitler had the Hitler Youth. Lenin, the Young Communist League. In the case of the Hitler Youth, membership was eventually made mandatory. The Young Communist League was seen as a vital stepping stone to the good life for children in the Soviet Union. I bring this up because while conservatives were busy making tons of money...

    As more and more people who hate Trump are forced to admit his achievements as president, they are doubling down on character assassination. Even Trump voters often preface their satisfaction with Trump's actions by criticizing his tweets or his personality. Here's an alternate take on things: Trump's character is responsible for his outstanding performance in his first year as president. If you want to know who someone is, you look at what he does. What we have: a booming economy, growing jobs, more lawful governance, fewer regulations, more global security. What character traits this took: hard work, focus, commitment, courage,...

    The 2016 election has opened an extraordinary chasm between supporters of the two leading candidates over the direction of the country, well beyond the divisions that existed in the 2008 campaign, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. According to the poll, 8 in 10 registered voters who support Republican Donald Trump say that the United States is less great than in the past, compared with just about 2 in 10 of those who support Democrat Hillary Clinton. Among all voters, 47 percent say the United States is less great than in the past, while 35 percent say it...

    Obama and Hillary are evil and some Republican candidates are bad. Stay mad, but laugh occasionally because it's refreshing. Then, let's take America back.Sometimes life is hard. Yeah, but wouldn't it be terrible if everything always happened just as we want it to? This is pretty much how government really works. They just aren't this good as telling us. Jimmy Buffett manages to offend just about everyone while being funny as he does it. That's good! It's about time for a drink. OK, it's time to get serious again. Obama said, "You didn't build...

    Washington Examiner ^ | February 2, 2014 | Melanie Sturm
    It's hard to be humble, Muhammad Ali rationalized, when you're as great as I am. In Sunday's contest between No. 1s, the Super Bowl's two most visible faces - Bronco Peyton Manning and Seahawk Richard Sherman - are case studies of Ali's theory. Manning is football's undisputed heavyweight champion whose "aw-shucks" humility belies - and explains - his unrivaled ownership of five NFL MVP awards. Quick to credit his teammates, even after a seven-touchdown performance, the 13-time Pro-Bowler and comeback king leaves it to others to laud his game. With his legacy on the line in his third Super Bowl,...

    Today is the anniversary of the birth of George Washington. Of all the great men of the revolutionary era to whom we owe our freedom, Washington's greatness was the rarest and the most needed. At this remove in time, it is also the hardest to comprehend. Take, for example, Washington's contribution to the Constitutional Convention of 1787. Washington's mere presence lent the undertaking and its handiwork the legitimacy that resulted in success. The convention's first order of business was the election of a presiding officer. Washington was the delegates' unanimous choice.

    In a different day and age, Jeff Hart would be the most famous American in our country right now. He would be honored at the White House. Schoolchildren would learn of his skill and heroism. But because Jeff Hart works in an industry under fire by the Obama administration, more people in Chile will celebrate this symbol of American greatness than in American itself. Jeff Hart is a driller based in my home state of Colorado. The father of two has been drilling water wells in Afghanistan at U.S. Army bases. When the San Jose Mine in Chile collapsed in...

    Foxsports ^ | 6/4/10 | Jeff Goodman
    With all due respect to Bob Knight, Mike Krzyzewski and even Bear Bryant and Vince Lombardi, John Wooden was in a class by himself. Wooden will go down as the most accomplished coach anywhere. Ever. The Wizard of Westwood won 10 national titles in a 12-year span, including a remarkable seven consecutive from 1967 through 73. Woodens success is almost unfathomable. Wooden passed away on Friday night at the UCLA Medical Center, just months prior to his 100th birthday on Oct. 14. Wooden was still mentally sharp in his 90s and was spotted at UCLA games and other events.

    I wrote this blog in October 2009, and never has it been more true than it is today. November 2010 will be historic on a scale not seen in our lifetimes! Consider what will happen as the following massive voter groups begin to fuse and, at an absolute minimum, strongly trend AWAY from big government liberalism. Irritated republicans. Angry conservatives. Ron Paul libertarians. Registered independents. Disaffected democrats. Frightened Medicare seniors. Disillusioned Jews. And drum roll: Conservative youth (18-26). Pray, just for a moment (or longer, it's OK), reflect and analyze these energized groups. While political trends are often difficult to...

    It doesn't buy what it used to, but will this swap-out be granted? Remember when Grover Norquist was on that tear to have one thing in every state named for former President Reagan? So adorable. We thought he mostly gave up but in truth, we quit paying attention when the plan to add Reagan to Mount Rushmore fell through. It's an election year, though, so any and all ways for Republicans to ostentatiously honor the nation's 40th president must now present themselves and be heard. Rep. Patrick McHenry, a Republican from North Carolina, wants to boot Ulysses S. Grant from...
