    Let me throw down this marker: The West is superior to the rest of the world in every significant way, we should aggressively back our allies over our enemies, and the guiding principle of our foreign policy should always be America’s interests. No apologies. No equivocation. No doubt.What are your questions?Well, if you're a normal American, you won't have any questions - these truths are self-evident. But if you're a progressive, you're gonna have a little sissy snit fit like so many libs did in the wake of the President’s triumphant Warsaw speech. There’s one thing that always sets...

    RUSH: As you know, for the bulk of this week and much of last week I have been focusing on the assault on American civilization, American culture, Western civilization. And I’ve been bouncing off of what I call a triumphant speech that Trump gave in Poland about this. And we’ve been talking about the sheer hatred and panic that Trump’s speech was greeted with by people on the left who despise American culture. And I ran into a very, very good piece about American civilization, Western civilization over on Townhall by Kurt Schlichter, and I want to share it with...

    Fight the most important battle of our lifetime, the lifestyle-robbing conspiracy; the one unlike the fake Russians-stole-the-election one keeping the one that matters most well-hidden from public view The biggest tragedy of modern day history is that a president who came into office hating America, and held fast to his tenure for eight long years before being replaced by a president the American lib-left is teaching the world to hate. The visceral, stoked-up repeat-after-me hatred of President Donald Trump is the only sign of life in the zombies infected by the pure hate they pick up while watching T.V. Their...

    Tucker Carlson became so baffled by former DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse during a Monday interview he stopped the guest with one short question. What the hell are you talking about? Tucker asked. Woodhouse, former president of a Democratic super PAC, was discussing President Donald Trumps speech in Poland and the media backlash it received. He compared the presidents usage of the phrase Christian values to a dog whistle to white nationalists, which prompted Carlsons strong reaction. Lets stop with the propaganda lets just deal with the text of the speech, Carlson said. If youre a leader of western...

    President Trump's speech in Warsaw was a remarkable statement from a western leader in the 21st century - which is why the enforcers of our public discourse have gone bananas over it and denounced it as "blood and soil" "nativism" (The New Republic), "racial and religious paranoia" (The Atlantic), and "tinpot dictator sh*t" (some comedian having a meltdown on Twitter). Much of the speech was just the usual boosterish boilerplate that one foreign leader sloughs off while visiting the capital of another. But that wasn't what caused the mass pearl-clutching. This was the offending passage: There is nothing like our...

    WARSAW President Trump said on Thursday that Western civilization was at risk of decline, bringing a message about radical Islamic terrorism and the creep of government bureaucracy to a European capital he views as hospitable to his nationalist message.Mr. Trump, who broke with tradition by attacking American leaders and his countrys intelligence services while abroad, delivered his message in a speech to a friendly Polish crowd before a two-day summit meeting of Group of 20 leaders in Hamburg, Germany.Hours later, he flew from Warsaw to Hamburg, where he held a low-key private meeting with the German chancellor, Angela Merkel....

    By the time Air Force One started down the runaway at Naval Air Station Sigonella in Sicily, to bring President Trump home, the Atlantic had grown markedly wider than it was when he flew to Riyadh. In a Munich beer hall Sunday, Angela Merkel confirmed it. Europe must begin to look out for itself, she said, "take our fate into our own hands. ... The times in which we could rely fully on others, they are somewhat over." Merkel's apprehensions are understandable. A divorce could be in the cards. During his visit to NATO in Brussels and the G-7 in...

    Berlin (AFP) Germany unleashed a volley of criticism Monday against US President Donald Trump, slamming his "short-sighted" policies that have "weakened the West" and hurt European interests. The sharp words from Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel came after Trump concluded his first official tour abroad which took him to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Brussels and then Italy for a G7 summit. They followed Chancellor Angela Merkel's warning on Sunday that the United States and Britain may no longer be completely reliable partners. Germany's exasperation was laid bare after the G7 summit which wrapped up on Saturday with the US refusing so...

    If Marine Le Pen wins, its almost certainly the end of the EU, experts say and that could bring economic and political turmoil unlike anything the West has seen in decades. Forget Britains vote for Brexit. Forget U.S. President Donald Trumps November win. If Marine Le Pen somehow defeats Emmanuel Macron in Frances presidential runoff vote on Sunday, it may be the biggest electoral shock in the West so far this century. A win by the leader of the French far right would see a leading European nation select a president emphatically opposed to globalization and integration, friendly to...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan ramped up his anti-European rhetoric on Wednesday, warning that the safety of Western citizens could be in peril if European nations persist in what he described as arrogant conduct. Erdogan's remarks came amid tension over Dutch and German restrictions on Turkish officials who tried to campaign for diaspora votes ahead of an April 16 referendum on expanding the powers of the Turkish presidency. "Turkey is not a country that can be pushed and shoved, whose honor can be toyed with, whose ministers can be ousted, whose citizens can be dragged on the ground," Erdogan told...

    Carl Bildt is a former prime minister of Sweden and a contributing columnist for The Post.It is only with effort that the leaders of Europe have managed to compose themselves after the U.S. election, torn between pure shock over the result and the necessity of preserving what can be preserved of the West and the Atlantic relationship. If you listen to what Donald Trump has been saying during and before his campaign, this is the end of the West as we know it. For more than half a century, this story of phenomenal success has been built on a commitment...

    Donald Trumps victory marks the end of liberal non-democracy and will allow the West to break free from the captivity of ideologies that distort reality through political correctness, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbn has said. The election outcome indicates a shift in popular thinking in the West, Orbn said in remarks made yesterday evening on a trip to London, and this morning at a conference organised by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. During his one-day official visit to Britains capital, the Central European leader commented that the Republican candidates big win represents a victory for freedom of thought...

    It is hard to imagine a period since the end of the Cold War when relations between Russia and the United States have been quite so bad. ... The Russian president has spoken explicitly about the worsening climate between Washington and Moscow, insisting that what the Obama administration wants is "diktat" rather than dialogue. For all that, the US and Russia are still in contact over Syria. For all the harsh rhetoric and accusations, they both realise that they have a vital role to play in any eventual settlement of the Syrian drama. Whatever its immediate strategic intentions, a permanent...

    My brother Evan was born female. He came out as transgender 16 years ago but never stopped wanting to have a baby. This spring he gave birth to his first child. When the call came, my brother was at work in the open office in Cambridge, Mass., he shares with seven colleagues who, like him, help run clinical trials for a drug developer. The phone number came up blocked, so he knew it must be the doctor. He stood up, unsteady on his feet. Was he a little nauseous? Or was that just adrenaline? He ducked into the hallway in...

What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue? Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper. Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar! My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace. I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.(Psalm 120)Why has Anti-Semitism been such an enduring, intractable problem throughout history? The...

    One of the primary reasons Islamic and Western nations are worlds apart is because the way they understand the world is worlds apart. Whereas Muslims see the world through the lens of history, the West has jettisoned or rewritten history to suit its ideologies. This dichotomy of Muslim and Western thinking is evident everywhere. When the Islamic State declared that it will conquer Rome and break its crosses, few in the West realized that those are the verbatim words and goals of Islams founder and his companions as recorded in Muslim sourceswords and goals that prompted over a thousand...

    Elites who are exempt by virtue of their money and influence from the consequences of living among millions of displaced Africans, Arabs, or Latin Americans berate ad nauseam their less-well-connected, supposedly illiberal fellow citizens. But note that no elite Westerner wants to face the cause of the malady: namely, that the failure in the Third World to adopt Western ideas of consensual government, equality between the sexes, free-market capitalism, individual liberty, and transparent meritocracy logically leads to mayhem and poverty. Westerners are afraid to explain why the non-West suffers and what it might do to end its own miseries. To...

    Fantastic video that you can see by clicking on the "Enza Ferreri Blog" link above, from ramzpaul. It has been the Christian cross and Christian Church that has defeated the invading Islamic armies again and again, throughout the history of Europe, let's never forget that. Now Europe is losing Christianity, and is losing to Islam: can that be only a coincidence? Wake up, people! The attacks on Christianity have come from various sources, but none of these sources have had European interests at heart. Sometimes these attacks are repeated by nave, unaware, possibly well-meaning "useful idiots", but mostly they are...

    LONDON The sophisticated, military-style strike Wednesday on a French newspaper known for satirizing Islam is sure to accelerate the growth of anti-Islamic sentiment in Europe, feeding far-right nationalist parties like Frances National Front. This is a dangerous moment for European societies, said Peter Neumann, director of the International Center for the Study of Radicalization at Kings College London. With increasing radicalization among supporters of jihadist organizations and the white working class increasingly feeling disenfranchised and uncoupled from elites, things are coming to a head.... Mr. Cantat spoke for many when he said the attacks could fuel greater anti-immigrant sentiment....

Meanwhile in Israel a reporter interviewing Arab Muslim settlers in Jerusalem found that they too wanted peace. On their terms. Yes we want peace, one of them...
