    Trump defeats the media cartel, day after day. Nobody has done that since Reagan. Ted Cruz is an excellent candidate, but Trump has already accomplished the impossible -- and he doesn't get any credit for it from conservatives. In fact, our elites keep missing the significance of Trump's constant suckering of the media. Conservative thinkers have forgotten that strategically the media are our bitter enemies. ... Wherever the Left takes over, total control over public discourse is its first priority. The Left has no conscience, no intelligent plan, no track record of positive achievement. They leave a huge trail of...

    When it comes to sneering contempt for ordinary people, it's hard to out-perform the left, with its long, bloody history of mass murders by tiny radical elites. But we are now being treated to conservative pundits' revolt against the base, a most revealing moment in these dangerous times.

    FRANKFORT — The Kentucky County Clerks Association will propose removing clerks’ names from the document in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s legalization of same-sex marriage. Overturning the state’s ban on same-sex marriage has prompted Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis and two others to deny licenses to all couples, drawing a federal lawsuit against Davis as well as calls to change the licensing process. Leslie County Clerk James Lewis, chairman of the association’s elections committee, told reporters Tuesday that his group is drafting “a simple solution” to the matter. “You would have the county and the county seat listed...
  • Egypt's President Al Sisi calls for "religious revolution" in Islam

    In a major positive development, Egypt's President Al Sisi has made an impassioned plea for a "religious revolution" in Islam. Speaking at Al Azhar University in Cairo, Sisi spoke directly to the religious establishment of Egypt: Is it possible that 1.6 billion people [Muslims] should want to kill the rest of the world's inhabitants – that is 7 billion – so that they themselves may live? Impossible! I am saying these words here at Al Azhar, before this assembly of scholars and ulema – Allah Almighty be witness to your truth on Judgment Day concerning that which I'm talking about...

    American Thinker and other commentary sites have been covering the Jihad War in great detail. But a coherent overview only came together for me after visiting the Long War Journal’s Threat Matrix, sponsored by the Foundation for the Defense of Democracy. The Threat Matrix helps us to see worldwide jihadist violence. In just the last two weeks we see jihadist warfare in: Nigeria (Boko Haram) Iraq and Syria (ISIS, Assad and Hezb’ollah) Gaza (Hamas) Sinai Desert (Ansar Jerusalem against Egypt) Afghanistan (Taliban) India (Al Qaida) Pakistan (Waziristan terrorists) Iraq (Iranian-sponsored terrorist group, “League of the Righteous”) Libya (Libya Dawn Coalition...

    Even the American left is finally realizing that this is the strangest administration in living memory. Obama simply has no real precedents, which is why he seems so utterly foreign. American presidents tend to be pragmatists, but Obama is locked into a simpleminded ideology of Good vs. Evil. Obama is Good, and anybody who disagrees with him is Evil. Much of this oddity stems from the president’s personality, which many people have described as a mix of major narcissism, borderline personality disorder, and oppositional defiant disorder. Personality disordered people can be very functional in their jobs. But they are very...

    09/07/2013 8:28:13 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 36 replies ^ | 9/7/2013 | James Lewis
    Obama is the second fervently anti-American president we have seen. That was hard to accept for a long time, but after the overthrow of our longtime ally Mubarak in Egypt, after Obama's active support for the Islamofascist Muslim Brotherhood, after the Benghazi arms-smuggling operation to Al Qaida-allied rebels in Syria, and now, after Obama's selective outrage against Syrian poison gas attacks in a civil war where 130,000 Syrians have died -- after all those facts I don't think Obama is running a pro-American policy any more. After all, Obama is running the "apologize for white folks" administration. It's the "American...

    Domestically, Obama is trying to create a Eurosocialist centralized economy. But in the liberal paradise of Europe the socialist model is failing right in front of our eyes today. Millions of people in Italy and Greece have had their incomes slashed in half and their taxes increased. The Euro is failing in all the weaker economies of Europe. The standard demagogic propaganda of Eurosocialism -- calling one's opponents racists and planetary poisoners -- is failing. Everywhere the Arab Spring has sprung, Islamist tyranny has replaced relative freedom -- for women most of all. Turkey used to be a modern country...

    It is now apparent that the president of the United States countermanded standing Pentagon orders to help American personnel under attack. Ambassador Stevens and three others were left to die without AC-130 Spectres and rescue teams that are always on standby in the Africom theater. Only the White House could have countermanded those standing orders, and we know that POTUS had an emergency meeting with Panetta and Hillary within 55 minutes of the start of the attack. AFRICOM's General Carter F. Ham was fired -- presumably for wanting to rescue the Americans under fire. Ambassador Stevens and his people were...

    .....The whole liberal complaint about religion is two centuries out of date -- except in the case of radical warlike Islam, where it is all too timely. The liberal answer to Mohammed is Marx,one reactionary extremist from the Arabian desert of thirteen centuries ago against another one from the Prussian Empire of 1848. Mohammed and Marx both agitated for world-conquering imperialism,and dumbed-down libs think that the Marxist mass-murdering ideology is "progressive." Obama was raised in a militant anti-Western group of seething leftists. Those are the people he tells us he picked to be his friends and allies in college. Those...

    [Snip]...Obama has been working with Samantha Power and Code Pink to undermine Israel. In that process, at least 20,000 Arabs have died in what the media call the "Arab Spring." It has turned into an Arab Nightmare. Twenty thousand dead is a lowball estimate from

    The grotesque foreign policy of the Obama administration has now achieved its pinnacle of battiness. After three and a half years of bowing low to Dark Ages tyrants and shafting our democratic friends, with Iranian nukes well on the way -- so close that even the CIA is willing to see the obvious -- the Deep Thinkers of Foggy Bottom are now worried sick that Israel might attack Iran. Let's see. Israel has 7 million people who yearn for peace, because their lives are reasonably good, other than having to live with blood-thirsty maniacs surrounding the country with an estimated...

    Liberalism used to be a respectable position for intelligent, well-meaning, and informed people. That was a long time ago. No longer. Today the "liberal" faith requires an extraordinary act of ignorance, purposeful forgetting, and constant spinning. To be a faithful "liberal" today you have to forget the whole 20th century, and its 100 million victims of the radical left -- that is, victims of Obama's brand of leftism. You have to shut out of your mind the fact that Obama hails from today's Chicago Machine, the most storied and undemocratic political machine since Boss Tweed. You have to ignore the...

    Barack Obama may not be the kind of man you and I want as president, but he's a very slick stage magician. That's how he's made it in politics, along with scandal bombs tossed by Axelrod. The 2008 Obama campaign was an endless series of stage tricks, epitomized by the infamous Greek styrofoam temple columns in Denver. Stage magicians work a lot by distraction. A well-timed distraction makes people lose track of whatever they are thinking. If I'm an in-your-face street hustler and you're beginning to get suspicious about me, all I have to do is tap your shirt and...

    It's gotten so obvious that even the New York Times has taken notice. Europe is no longer governed by old-fashioned electoral democracies. That fact is even acknowledged by the European Union, which admits that, yes, Europe does have a "democracy deficit." Czech President Vaclav Klaus has seriously compared the EU to the Soviet Union. The cynics now call it the EuroSoviet Union.

    Want to know why the Democrats in Congress are mumbling "f*** the president"?  Want to know why the Cancun mobsters are demanding world power for yesterday's climate fascism? This is Dunkirk, folks.  It's the Battles of Midway and Gettysburg rolled into one.  This is the watershed moment in history. This is where the Evil Empire gets its comeuppance. The next few years may be the most historic ones in our lives. The left is at the very peak of its power since the Evil Empire fell in 1991, with Obama occupying the White House today, surrounded by his commissars.  The...

    Obama always seems to crave more ego gratification. There is no limit to his thirst for personal power and glory. The slogan "The Audacity of Hope" is taken straight from Napoleon's creed, "L'audace, l'audace, toujours l'audace!" Always act audaciously on the battlefield, because your opponents will never predict your dangerous moves. Your enemies will be shocked and overwhelmed by the risks you take. That's how Napoleon managed to kill tens of millions of Europeans in his attempt to conquer the world after 1800. George Patton used the audacity strategy to beat Nazi armored divisions in World War II. Hitler used...

    The media are playing "divide and conquer" games against Republicans now, a strategy that worked in 2008 by leaving us with John McCain as the only candidate. This time they are swinging between viciously attacking Sarah Palin and her family, and hyping real or imaginary divisions between Republicans -- never among the Democrats, who present the image of a united front with Stalinesque unity. But you can bet there's a lot of vicious in-fighting among Obama, the Clintons, and all the rest, because Obama may be destroying the Democratic Party as we know it. Already the media are spreading the...

    I have two liberal friends who love Amerindian peoples enough to go to sweat lodge retreats and medicine rituals. They passionately argue on behalf of Native Americans, and are dead set against Western culture. Naturally they are liberals --- and no, they aren't willing to give their homes back to the nearest Native American tribe to make up for our past sins. My friends are "settlers" who live in denial of their own family history. Their self-righteous cant on behalf of Siberian settlers in America -- also known as "Native" Americans -- is strictly limited to loud talk. It's slightly...

    “The French called Hitler a “revanchiste” — a Kaiser soldier of World War I who was aching to avenge that defeat. Hitler made no secret of his desire for revenge. He made it a Nazi slogan. Well, you can have ideological revanchisme as well — for instance, a Marxist determination to take revenge for America’s victory against world Communism in the Cold War.” There is nothing in Obama’s background to suggest he is anything but a socialist in the Marxist tradition. His father was a socialist economist, his mother unabashedly sympathetic to socialist causes. His parents met in a Russian...
