  • Martin Amis rounds on Donald Trump and his 'army of neo-Nazis' (He means you and me)

    The Manchester Guardian ^ | September 15, 2017 | Alison Flood
    Martin Amis has suggested that Donald Trump, who the author speculated could be suffering from dementia, is preparing for the possibility of an untimely end to his presidency by “trying to stock up an army of neo-Nazis”. Comparisons between Trump and Hitler are wrong, Amis argues, because the US president actually resembles a different fascist: Hitler’s ally Mussolini. Speaking to Guardian Weekend in New York, the novelist recalled seeing the slogan “Mussolini Is Always Right” on Italian bridges in the 1970s. “Trump is that crazy, and that boastful, and that deluded,” Amis said. “Even Mussolini had a few good years...
  • Future of Balbo monument, a gift from Mussolini, uncertain [Chicago]

    Chicago Tribune ^ | August 18, 2017 8:20 AM | Christopher Borrelli
    Every now and then, for the more than 80 years it has stood outside Soldier Field on Burnham Harbor, the Balbo monument — a slender, 18-foot tall column of greenish breccia rock, perched at the foot of the bike path — has unnerved many Chicagoans. That is, the ones who knew its history. It was a gift to Chicago from fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, erected in 1934 to commemorate a celebrated trans-Atlantic flight of 24 11-ton seaplanes from Rome to Chicago. The namesake of the monument was the leader of that voyage, General Italo Balbo, an Italian aviator who had...

    Daily Kos (!!!) ^ | 07/19/2013 | Bender Rodriguez
    Earlier last century, President Franklin Roosevelt endorsed Italian dictator Benito Mussolini as an admirable Italian gentleman. He also said, in a letter to an American envoy, of all people, that I am much interested and deeply impressed by what he has accomplished. People, I think it’s time to reassess Mr. Roosevelt. Now, I'll probably catch heck from the Roos-a-bots among us, but, really, what has our president accomplished? Sure, he speaks well, but this “New Deal”? Where are the results?

    Mussolini had become a member of the Socialist Party in 1900 and had begun to attract wide admiration. In speeches and articles he was extreme and violent, urging revolution at any cost, but he was also well spoken. Mussolini held several posts as editor and labor leader until he emerged in the 1912 Socialist Party Congress. He became editor of the party's daily paper, Avanti, at the age of twenty-nine. His powerful writing injected excitement into the Socialist ranks. In a party that had accomplished little in recent years, his youth and his intense nature was an advantage. He called...

    Chris Plante Show
    Forgive me if I am posting this incorrectly as it is my first post, but I just had to share this once I heard it on the way to work. I was listening to the Chris Plante show and just had to share this to try to get this information out to go viral and maybe into the hands of Donald Trump even to use. It seems that a friend of Chris Plante sent him an email last night telling him that Hillary Clinton's campaign slogan of "Stronger Together" actually came from a Roman belief and was used by the...
  • Russia Clamps Down on Evangelism

    How would you feel if tomorrow it became illegal to send an email to your friend, inviting them to church? This is the reality that Russian believers have suddenly woken up to, as a result of new anti-terror legislation which came into effect at the end of July, forbidding many forms of evangelism. Ostensibly to combat terrorism, Russia has clamped down hard on evangelism, and made life extremely difficult for our brothers and sisters who want to share the Good News freely there. There has been a great window of opportunity for the gospel to spread since the fall of...

    In March of this year, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto compared Donald Trump to Hitler and Mussolini. At the time, Peña Nieto said that Trump’s rhetoric was “the way that Mussolini arrived and the way Hitler arrived.” At a press conference today with President Obama and Canadian President Trudeau, Peña Nieto was asked if he stood by those remarks. Peña Nieto wordily replied that over decades, the world has made tremendous economic progress, but that “some” want to destroy what has been built. That is what Hitler and Mussolini did, said Peña Nieto. In concluding, Peña Nieto said “that was...

    Of his many outrageous campaign statements, perhaps Donald J. Trump's most important ones concern his hoped-for role as president of the United States. When told that uniformed personnel would disobey his unlawful order as president to torture prisoners and kill civilians, Trump menacingly replied "They won't refuse. They're not going to refuse, believe me." Responding to criticism by the speaker of the House, Trump spoke like a Mafia don: "Paul Ryan, I don't know him well, but I'm sure I'm going to get along great with him. And if I don't? He's gonna have to pay a big price." ......

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Now, usually, ladies and gentlemen, the pattern for Donald Trump during the primary season has been that when he has lost a primary, he immediately changes the narrative the next day, usually by announcing an endorsement. So you got Christie endorsing, which changed the narrative of a Trump loss. Sometimes the endorsement happens the night of a loss, usually next morning. Same thing happened with Dr. Carson after another Trump loss. Carson comes out and endorses Trump, and that changes the narrative. It's smart. Trump has no new endorsements to announce, so what he has done today...

    As Wisconsinites head for the polls, our Beltway elites are almost giddy. For they foresee a Badger State bashing for Donald Trump, breaking his momentum toward the Republican nomination. Should The Donald fall short of the delegates needed to win on the first ballot, 1,237, there is growing certitude that he will be stopped. First by Ted Cruz; then, perhaps, by someone acceptable to the establishment, which always likes to have two of its own in the race. But this city of self-delusion should realize there is no going back for America. For, whatever his stumbles of the last two...

    MEXICAN PRESIDENT: TRUMP LANGUAGE LIKE THAT OF HITLER MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto compared the language of Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump to that of dictators Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini in an interview published Monday, and said it has hurt U.S.-Mexico relations. Asked about Trump, Pena Nieto complained to the Excelsior newspaper about "these strident expressions that seek to propose very simple solutions" and said that sort of language has led to "very fateful scenes in the history of humanity." "That's the way Mussolini arrived and the way Hitler arrived," Pena Nieto sai

    Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, a former Air Force pilot who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, said on Thursday that Donald Trump is openly advocating war crimes that would cause the soldiers who obeyed his orders to be jailed. “If you’re a private in the field and your major or your colonel orders you to do something that is a war crime, you actually bear responsibility, you can’t say that the colonel made me do it,” said Kinzinger, who is supporting Marco Rubio. “What Donald Trump, as wanting to be president of the United States is advocating, is a war...

    So Alex Pareene at Gawker "proved" Donald Trump is a complete idiot right? The political enemies of Donald Trump—left and right--are all rushing to social media to tell us that. "Ha ha!! Donald Trump you dunce….retweeting a Fascist slogan!" Folks, if this story proves anything, it's that some Millennial pundits, their closets bursting to gravitational collapse with shiny participation trophies since they first lisped their names in nursery school, are under a psychotically self-absorbed delusion that they understand history better than anyone else who ever lived. Including the people who were there at the time. And—this is an even worse...

    Donald Trump has been coming under fire for retweeting a quote from Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini on Twitter--and it turns out the whole thing was an elaborate setup by Gawker. In a Sunday post on Gawker's website, the news organization explains how one staffer created a Twitter bot account that periodically tweeted out quotes from Mussolini and attributed them to Trump. The account has tweeted multiple times a day, only at Trump, since December 2015. (Its photo is a picture of Mussolini photoshopped with Trump's hair.) "We came up with the idea for that Mussolini bot under the assumption that...

    The bride, Edda, was 20, glamorous and well connected. The groom came from a prominent family. Their wedding was Italy's social event of the year in 1930. If the occasion was marred in any way, it was through the inability of the bride's father to part gracefully with his first-born daughter. He was so distraught that when the couple drove off for their honeymoon on Capri, Dad followed them for miles in his own car until Edda finally stopped, marched back to his car, and told him he had to turn around and go home. That is our introduction to...

    For anyone who watched Wednesday night's Republican primary debate with the volume turned down, there was a clear winner, communication experts say: Donald Trump, hands down. "When it comes to body language, nobody does it better," says David Givens, director of the Center for Nonverbal Studies in Spokane, Washington. "He just neutralizes the opposition." *snip* He leans forward on the lectern. Trump's opponents tend to stand up straight, which might please their mothers, but doesn't do much for the audience. Givens notes that Trump puts his hands on the lectern and leans forward. "It's like he's doing a pushup. It's...
