    According to a recent Gallup poll, the percent of American who are extremely proud of their country has been steadily falling, and now in 2018, it stands at a mere 47%.  Leading this trend are the usual suspects. They are Democrats, liberals in particular, the young, and non-whites. Gallup reports: Currently, 32% of Democrats -- down from 43% in 2017 and 56% in 2013 -- are extremely proud. the decline preceded the election of Donald Trump but has accelerated in the past year. Less than half of independents, 42%, are extremely proud. That's down slightly from 48% a year ago,...

    (National Sentinel) Warning Sign: A new survey found that roughly 20 percent of American Millennials have been brainwashed into believing that the U.S. flag is a symbol of “intolerance and hatred.” According to the “State of American Patriotism Report,” which was designed to assess the patriotism and historical knowledge of young Americans, also found that six in 10 Millennials (ages 22-37) actually believe the United States is racist and sexist. As bad as these results are, it gets worse: The survey results indicate that love for country is declining among young Americans in general. For instance, nearly half — 46...
  • Nationalism as Loyalty Irritated

    What is nationalism? The word is suddenly and surprisingly important when talking about the times we live in. But we seem to be working without a shared definition. “You know what I am? I’m a nationalist,” Donald Trump said in an October rally in Houston. French president Emmanuel Macron slapped back at a commemoration ceremony for World War I in France. “Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism,” he said. “By saying ‘our interests first, who cares about the others,’ we erase what a nation holds dearest, what gives it life, what makes it great and what is essential: its moral...

(YouTube) Brazil's newly appointed foreign minister, Ernesto Frago Araujo, who starts his new job in January under President Jair Bolsonaro, has stated that the climate change issue was invented by "cultural Marxists" to help push a globalist agenda that is anti-growth and anti-Christian, reported The Guardian and the Daily Mail.  The Bolsonaro administration will take over Brazil's government on January 1, 2019. Bolsonaro selected Araujo to be minister of foreign affairs on...

You start getting politics that’s based on, “That person’s not like me, and it must be their fault,” and you start getting a politics based on a nationalism that’s not pride in country, but hatred for somebody on the other side of the border, and you start getting the kind of politics that does not allow for compromise because it’s based on passions and emotions and identities.

    French President Emmanuel Macron’s thinly-veiled shots at President Trump over the weekend won at least one hearty American “oui” — from Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Mr. Kasich, a frequent critic of Mr. Trump, took to Twitter to second Mr. Macron’s attack on “nationalism” at a speech Sunday marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. “@EmmanuelMacron is right,” Mr. Kasich tweeted, going on to quote what the French leader said in front of Mr. Trump, who has taken much criticism as racist for calling himself a “nationalist.”

    European Council President Donald Tusk has said that the United States is not interested in a “strong, united” Europe and called nationalism a “fundamental threat” to the European Union. The former Prime Minister of Poland turned top Eurocrat made the comments at a speech in his home country on Saturday, the day before Poland celebrated the 100th anniversary of its rebirth as an independent state, with Poles taking part in a march through Warsaw on Sunday condemned by the mainstream media as “far-right” nationalism. “For the first time in history we have an American administration which, to put it delicately,...
  • Trump's Nationalism Is Undoing Decades of GOP [GOPe RINO] Failure

    One thing the American Right has forgotten through their bromides in favor of hyper individualism and the meandering status quo-ism is that humans are inherently collective beings. Now while things like land collectivization and seizing the means of production are terrible as public policies, humans do yearn to connect with others under the banner of a shared, common culture, language, background, and history. Families, tribes, churches, fraternities, and other voluntary organic collectives are an integral and necessary part of the human experience. One such collective, I argue, is more important than all of those. It is the nation. Without...

    Pastor Andrew Brunson kissed the American flag when it was presented to him in Germany. I understand his emotions very well. In 1976, I went to Teheran, Iran to teach history in private school while the Shah Reza Pahlavi was still in power. It was a police state then even though it is a worse police state now. After I arrived, my passport was confiscated. In addition, there was runaway inflation and I had to begin borrowing thousands of dollars from the school in order to meet my basic expenses. My salary was $850 a month, and my rent was...

    Beto O’Rourke, the Democrat challenging GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in the midterm elections, is being slammed by Republicans for saying there is “nothing more American” than kneeling during the national anthem. “Comments like his are a slap in the face to every man and woman who has ever served our nation and put their lives on the line to defend American values,” Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey said Thursday. O’Rourke, a Democratic congressman, was asked at a recent campaign event about NFL players who kneel during the anthem. O’Rourke replied, “I can think of nothing more American than...

    Four days after he disdainfully uttered the words “America was never that great” from a podium before an audience of feminists, Andrew Cuomo recanted the offensive declaration.  Despite 2 days of intense blowback, Cuomo was not able to force himself to utter the words, “Of course America is great.”  But he did so without providing any video, using a “conference call” to media. You can hear the recanting in this news report from New York City’s Channel 11, WPIX: The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle transcribes: During a conference call with reporters Friday, Cuomo dialed it back, saying he does...

    "They" are preciously called "immigrants," "refugees," "migrants," "undocumented Americans," and other pathetic-sounding names tailored to wrench our hearts – we purportedly cruel, unsympathetic, inhuman Americans.  Luxuriating here, behind our walls of wealth, abundance, and security, we deny them our (stolen) largesse and close up our fat-wracked arms to these noble, sacred, starving, uneducated, illiterate, diseased, violent, and socialist masses from "third-world," countries. Who are these Mexicans, Africans, South Americans, Asians, and others whose feet Nancy Pelosi has washed and the pope kissed?  What is it these luminaries see that we do not?  We – reputedly the most selfish, detestable creatures on...

    A World War II veteran who has been delivering sweet surprises from the sky for 70 years continues to brings smiles to the faces of children as the "Candy Bomber.” "There's something magical about a chocolate bar come floatin' out of the sky," Col. Gail "Hal" Halvorsen told ABC News. "It's tied on an actual parachute. Hopefully, some kids appreciate it." Halvorsen, 97, started his candy drops when he was a U.S. pilot for the Allied forces during the Berlin Airlift. In 1948, the Russians cut off food and supplies to West Berlin, Germany. The United States and its allies...

    How refreshing and heartening this is to his voters. Trump has applied the power of his pugilistic personality to work for us, for the welfare of individual Americans and for our wellbeing as a nation. He sincerely has heart for ordinary people. We see it in how he fights for better treatment for our men and women in uniform – military, police, firefighters, border patrol. As a patriot, he respects, even reveres, the individuals who dedicate, and sometimes sacrifice their lives, to keep us safe. We see it in how he fights for jobs for workers, white, black and brown,...

    PHILADELPHIA -- Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins issued a strong response to Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on Friday, referring to him as a "bully" for requiring his players to stand for the national anthem, while urging owners around the league -- including Eagles Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie -- to speak up in support of the players on this issue. "Jeffrey has been very supportive of us from the beginning. I don't see Jeffrey as a bully like Jerry Jones is. Lucky for me, I don't play for the Cowboys. Nor would I want to.

    Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar has declared that the crisis facing the EU is not mass immigration, but European resistance to importing large numbers of migrants from the third world. “This isn’t so much a migrant crisis as it is a political crisis,” the Irish Taoiseach (prime minister) said of disagreement within the EU over how to deal with illegal immigrants arriving to the continent. “Europe needs migration,” he insisted, claiming the belief that hundreds of thousands of migrants from the world’s poorest countries arriving in boats and storming the EU’s frontiers is a problem that has been invented by...
