This Jewish Boy Is Going to Buy a Gun

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Hitler took the guns away from the German Jewish population in 1938. We all know what happened. It's actually too grisly to contemplate, even for this author of Holocaust movies. I will buy a gun with a heavy heart. It's not something I really want to do. I don't enjoy hunting (I've tried it) and find target practice only mildly diverting, something I would only want to do a few times a year. (I'll have to do more.) But the world gives me little choice, not just as a Jew but as a citizen. Self-defense is common sense.

Judge Tells New Citizens to ‘Take A Knee’

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

We are told Trump is a monstrous nativist. In fact, he is simply espousing principles of nationalism both parties at one time shared.If a liberal activist had asked, say, LBJ, or even JFK, to support professional athletes boycotting the American flag, they would have told the activist to go jump in a lake. Now the Dems are the party of flag boycotters in the NFL. It is pitiful, and dangerous. The breakdown in a nationalism common to both parties has given us a judiciary chock-a-block full of subversive hacks like LaShann DeArcy.

The Deflation of the Academic Brand

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

In truth, elite education has become a cattle brand. It signifies lots of things other than knowledge. The Trump revolution is often attributed to the angry pushback of the deplorables and irredeemables and all those who lacked the knack for getting with the global agenda. Perhaps. But it was also a popular consensus that our experts in government, the university, and the media were not very expert, and the résumés and letters behind their names increasingly denoted nothing much at all.

The Origins of Our Second Civil War

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

We are now nearing a point comparable to 1860, and perhaps past 1968. Left–Right factionalism is increasingly fueled by geography — always history’s force multiplier of civil strife. Red and blue states ensure that locale magnifies differences that were mostly manageable during the administrations of Ford, Carter, Reagan, the Bushes, and Clinton. Whether we all take a deep breath, and understand our present dangerous trajectory, will determine whether 2019 becomes 1861.

Fall Forecast: An Anti-Leftist Electoral Rout

Michael Ledeen, PJ Media

It seems that the leftist takeovers of the media and the education system are running out of steam. I’ll not be astonished at violence in the streets over the Kavanaugh nomination, but I don’t think it will lead to mass protests of the sort that accompanied the McGovern disaster. Worst of all for the Dems and their “intellectual” fellow-travelers, their distortion of the history of the past couple of centuries has caught up with them, and they are now speaking and writing on behalf of the modern world’s biggest losers.

When the left can't come to grips with losing power

Victor Davis Hanson, Washington Times

To progressives, Mr. Trump became not an opponent to be beaten with a better agenda, but an evil to be destroyed. Moderate Democrats were written off as dense; left-wing fringe elements were praised as clever. Voters in 2016 bristled at redistribution, open borders, bigger government and higher taxes, but progressives are now promising those voters even more of what they didn’t want. Furious over the sudden and unexpected loss of power, enraged progressives have so far done almost everything to lose even more of it.

A Fascist Right -- or a Hysterical Left?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The left, to the point of irrationality, despises a triumphant Trumpian right and believes that to equate it with fascists is not only legitimate, but a sign that the accusers are the real moral, righteous and courageous dissenters in these terrible times. Historians are calling the outbursts of hate unprecedented. They are not. When it comes to the rhetoric of hate, the cursing of politicians, the shouting down of speakers, the right is not innocent, but the left is infinitely more guilty. It was to the Donald Trump rallies, not the Bernie Sanders rallies, that the provocateurs came to start the fights.

Why the Left Is Having a Nervous Breakdown

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Trump is what the shrinks call the "presenting complaint." The real problem, as is often the case in psychotherapy, is something entirely different. And it is this: The left is dead. It's not only dead, it's decomposed with no there there or anywhere. The left has nothing to say, only most of them don't quite realize it yet. But this blockage, this reluctance and even inability to deal with what is actually happening shuts down the brain and emerges as anger, the hamster wheel of constant rage against Trump.

Liberals’ Hatred Will Inevitably Turn Into Violence

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Only liberals can choose not to go down the road to widespread, systematic violence. But if they choose poorly, Normals are ready, willing, and able stop them. Last month, Normal Americans bought over two million new guns. They’ve got 400 million already. Normals are sitting on a towering mountain of lead-launching freedom. But we’d prefer the option the liberals have ignored – a return to a society where disputes are resolved via the processes outlined in the Constitution and the individual rights set forth within it are respected.

Fear of the Left: The Most Powerful Force in America Today

Dennis Prager, American Greatness

Leftism—in its incarnations, such as Marxism, communism and socialism; expressed through egalitarianism, environmentalism and feminism; in its denigration of capitalism and Western civilization, especially America and Israel; in its supplanting of Christianity and Judaism; through its influence on Christianity and Judaism; in its celebration of race; and in its replacing of reason with romanticism—has almost completely taken over the news and entertainment media and institutions of education. There is a largely (though not entirely) nonviolent reign of ideological terror in America. In almost every area of life, people fear antagonizing the Left.

The New Left Trumps the Old Right

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Progressives are not much upset about the notion of foreigners meddling and warping U.S. politics. They indeed seem to approve of the idea that an American campaign would hire a British subject who, colluding with Russians, could help their candidate, Hillary Clinton, derail Donald Trump. And Russians aiding American greens to shut down fracking? Progressives shrug. A major Mexican politician moves to the U.S. to help Clinton organize Mexican-Americans voters to stop Trump — more shrugging.

Trump Syndromes

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Is it still sustainable to suggest that Trump is not a conservative but a dangerous liberal or demagogic wolf in conservative sheep’s clothing? The doctrinaire conservative Heritage Foundation now claims that two-thirds of its proverbial 334 conservative agenda items have been already met by Trump — and at a pace far faster than that achieved even by former president Reagan.

The Democrats ponder a second McGovern fling

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

With so many Democrats having heard the voice of the people buzzing in their ears, every candidate will be tripping over each other to prove that he’s more liberal than thou. When the party sobers up it will be too late. The Democrats are making the mistake they made once before, when they allowed the late George McGovern, a good but wrong-headed man, and his peaceniks to pull the party so far to the left that it fell off the side of the mountain. Years went by before the damage was repaired. The left is once more making all the noise in the party, raising most of the money, and intimidating the serious and the plausible.

They Don’t Hate The NRA. They Hate You.

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Understand that the left doesn’t hate the NRA. The NRA stuff is a distraction. Leftists are dumb, but they understand the power of the NRA is really the power of millions of Normal Americans coming together to defend their right to protect themselves, their families, their communities and their Constitution. That’s why they fear it. That’s why they can’t abide it. They want your voices silenced.

Are we watching a movement or just group therapy for Trump haters?

Jen Kerns, Fox News

While the Women’s March last year certainly served as an outlet for liberals to gather and share their “election depression,” there was no real call to action. There was no plan for attendees to return to their respective hometowns, run for office, nor do anything differently than they had done before the 2016 election. Quite frankly, without that kind of action the Women’s March risks becoming nothing more than annual group therapy.

Violencing Politics, Speech, and Religion

The Constitution creates a system of regular and non-violent transition of political power. However, in the view of the anti-constitutional left it seems violence is a justifiable response to losing political power.

Left-wing education cheats children

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

The sudden decline in performance in the Edina (Minnesota) school system is what happens when educators think it is their job to impose their political views on students. Every American, in every state should make sure their elected school officials are focused on education – not political indoctrination.

Why Conservative Scott Pruitt Is Trump’s Best Cabinet Secretary

Choosing conservative Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt as his EPA Administrator was one of President Trump’s more inspired choices. Through one brief memo Pruitt has made it clear the days of the government kowtowing to the environmental lobby are over.

Leftist Artists Show Hate for Houston Victims

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

To liberal elites, all Texans are somehow bigoted white Christian males. Even a hurricane can't restrain their rage about their satirical targets having any power in America. Cartoons like these strongly underline why so many Americans find that the secular-progressive media are either tone-deaf or blatantly hostile toward what (and Who) they hold dear.

Democrats Welcome Chairman Mao To America

Republicans and conservatives must force themselves to recognize that the violence perpetrated in Charlottesville, Philadelphia and Berkeley was just the probing movements of a coming hardcore Leftist revolution that intends through violence and intimidation to destroy constitutional liberty.
