When Will America’s Foul Dem Fascists Get Their Just Desserts?

Rudy Giuliani tells Dems they’ve walked into a trap

By Thomas Lifson at  American Thinker:

.

Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal lawyer and old friend from New York, was on fire last night, clearly ecstatic over what lies ahead for the Democrats now that they have made impeachment theater the public focus of the House of Representatives going into a presidential election year.  Of course, they do this without actually voting on impeachment, which would require her members to go on the record, regarded as poisonous for the 2018 class of new Democrats elected in districts that Trump carried in 2016.  But Giuliani knows that they have opened Pandora’s box with massive scandals involving Joe Biden and other members of the Obama administration.

So elated was Giuliani that he appeared in two long segments of The Ingraham Angle last night, totaling almost half an hour of airtime.  In the first segment that lasted nearly 15 minutes, he was so amped up providing a preview of what is to come that he started losing his voice, and Laura Ingraham had to cut him off for a commercial break.  He returned for a second segment to respond to a Democrat, former Chuck Schumer aide Chris Hahn, on whom he unloaded angrily.  Both segments are embedded below.

It was in the first segment that he gave a preview of what lies ahead, and it is evident that he and his client, President Trump, have been waiting for the right moment to launch their counterattack.

  • “The Democrats have stepped into something way beyond what they realize.”
  • “We’ve lost the FBI…and who knows what else?
  • “They have walked into a trap.”
  • “There’s only one reason the Chinese spent all that money: to buy Joe Biden.”
  • He warned, “I have the records” about the actual corruption of Biden and his son, who he said have provided “evidence of guilty knowledge.”
  • This impeachment effort is “[c]overing up for what will turn out to be massive corruption in the Obama administration.”
  • “The Clintons enriched themselves in public office to the tune of hundreds of millions.”

Here is the juiciest part of the interview, roughly the last three minutes, for those in a hurry.

Here is the complete segment, almost a quarter-hour long:

And here is the second segment, in which he lays into Chris Hahn:

Why Does the Human Female Fashion to Fascism so Easily?

(with the arrival of our american feminazis!)

HER GOD-GIVEN  NATURE HAS CREATED HER NOT TO  BUILD, NOT TO PROTECT,  INVENT, SEEK TO EXPOSE THE UNKNOWN, BUT TO CRAVE SECURITY, PROTECTION, TO BE TAKEN CARE OF IN ORDER TO CONTINUE THE EXISTENCE OF THE HUMAN SPECIES.

Her mate, THE HUMAN MALE ANIMAL  is born by GOD’S-GIVEN NATURE, to protect her and  THE HUMAN ANIMAL’S off spring to continue the life of the species!   He is programmed to sire, to  be  a killer when needed, a protector, a provider, a hunter, a  builder,  a dreamer driven to be curious, to seek wisdom to solve problems.   He must be “schooled” to do so!

The human female animal is the origin, the housing of the beginning and  continuation of the human species.   Her survival, security relies upon HIM.

BOTH ANIMALS ARE BORN FLAWED, IGNORANT, UNAWARE, FOOLISH, INDIVIDUAL, and yet INNOCENT AND GIFTED TO ENDURE THE PAIN AND JOY OF LIFE, the only life we have!….and it is wonderful if we animals make it so.

…..and along comes the giddy of the  feminazi ditsies of our modern American human day.   Their  arrival  is inevitable when human wisdom, and its learnings and goodness begin to disappear from the human drive,  returning to the endless days of the abyss of nothingness beyond the animal even the amoeba.

THERE’S AN ADULT IN OUR AMERICA…..”HIS NAME IS DONALD TRUMP!”

Did the Media Care When Obama Fired General Mattis?

By Daniel John Sobieski  at American Thinker:

.

Defense secretaries come and go.  President Obama had four of them in eight years, who had some unkind things to say about his leadership or lack of it.  There was no talk of chaos or of the only adult in the room leaving.

Suddenly, the media are in a meltdown after “Mad Dog” Mattis announced his departure from the Cabinet after President Trump announced our departure from Syria:

Foreign Policy Pentagon reporter Lara Seligman wrote the press corp [sic] is contemplating suicide over Mattis’ resignation, “I think I speak for all national security reporters tonight when I say I’m about ready to jump off a cliff. But at least I already wrote the “who will replace Mattis” story two months (only two months?????) ago[.”]

Democrats who won’t defend our southern border and who slept as Obama drew red lines with vanishing ink worry about an ISIS Obama created by a precipitous withdrawal from Iraq regaining strength and reforming in Syria and Iraq.  The general Obama fired is suddenly a man of principle whose leadership was indispensable:

House Speaker-designate Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she was “shaken and “concerned”. “General Mattis was a comfort to many who were concerned about the path the Trump Admin would choose to take. His resignation letter is defined by statements of principle – principles that drove him to leave the Administration. All of us should be concerned at this time.”

There was no such concern when Obama relieved Mattis as commander of CENTCOM without so much as a phone call, a factoid typical of Obama’s disdain for the military, its missions, and its heroes.

[Thomas E.] Ricks says Mattis was fired because:

Pentagon insiders say that he rubbed civilian officials the wrong way – not because he went all “mad dog,” which is his public image, and the view at the White House, but rather because he pushed the civilians so hard on considering the second- and third-order consequences of military action against Iran.  Some of those questions apparently were uncomfortable.  Like, what do you do with Iran once the nuclear issue is resolved and it remains a foe?  What do you do if Iran then develops conventional capabilities that could make it hazardous for U.S. Navy ships to operate in the Persian Gulf?  He kept saying, “And then what?”

There is also a belief that Mattis and Obama differed on Iran.  “A particular point of disagreement was what to do about mischief Iran is exporting to other countries.  Mattis is indeed more hawkish on this than the White House was,” writes Ricks in yet another post.

Mattis is probably more hawkish than Trump as well.  Mattis and Trump disagree on strategy.  Obama and Mattis disagreed on goals and consequences.  While a liberal uproar greeted the former, utter silence greeted the latter.

No doubt, our Syrian withdrawal was a factor in Mattis’s decision.  I don’t agree with it, but to compare it with Obama’s withdrawal from Iraq when he snatched defeat from George W. Bush’s victory, as many conservatives are doing, is a tad disingenuous.

President Trump destroyed the ISIS caliphate as originally constituted in Syria and Iraq.  Obama watched it grow and facilitated its growth through inaction and indifference.  ISIS is a cancer that has spread but is currently in remission. If it comes back in force, we can deal with it.  But it is not dangerous isolationism for Trump to consider Iran the main threat and to focus on it.

It is Iran that wants its nukes to be an existential threat to Israel, Europe, and the United States.  It is Iran that is trying to build a corridor of terror from Tehran through Syria and Iraq to its Hezb’allah puppets in Lebanon.

Iran is the head of the snake.  Syria and ISIS are the tail.  Strike at the head, and you kill the snake.  President Trump is doing that by nixing Obama’s nuclear deal and reimposing sanctions, including prohibitions on Iranian oil exports.  That, arguably, is a better way to deal with a very real threat than chasing random jihadis through the Syrian desert.

Critics of our Syrian withdrawal forget that under President Trump, American-backed forces liberated the ISIS capital of Raqqa.  They forget the hundreds of Russian mercenaries killed in clashes with U.S. forces.  They forget the cruise missile strikes against Syrian targets under the nose of Vladimir Putin.  Trump’s moves in Syria were hardly under a white flag.

Obama, by contrast, didn’t want to win anywhere and waged his own war against the U.S. military, purging it of generals, admirals, and commanders who dare to talk of victory.  President Obama began a military purge not dissimilar to those routinely conducted by third-world despots, with the goal of eliminating voices that might oppose his withdrawing from the world stage.  As Investor’s Business Dailyeditorialized:

[W]hat has happened to our officer corps since President Obama took office is viewed in many quarters as unprecedented, baffling and even harmful to our national security posture.  We have commented on some of the higher profile cases, such as Gen. Carter Ham.  He was relieved as head of U.S. Africa Command after only a year and a half because he disagreed with orders not to mount a rescue mission in response to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack in Benghazi[.] …

From Breitbart.com’s Facebook page comes a list of at least 197 officers that have been relieved of duty by President Obama for a laundry list of reasons and sometimes with no reason given.

Retired four-star general and Fox News analyst Jack Keane, architect of the Iraq surge that produced the victory Obama threw away, recently spoke on Kilmeade and Friends about Obama’s ongoing purge of the military of officers who oppose his isolationist and defeatist policies.

It’s also a fact that a number of our general officers, not all of them but a number of them, were asked to leave before what would normally be accepted as the routine tenure for that particular position, and General Mattis is a case in point who had very strong views on Iran.  Most of us agree with those views but I know the administration did not agree with them.  General Flynn, who you know very well and had on your show, was an outspoken proponent for understand[ing] radical Islam, how dangerous this particular threat was and was trying to communicate that, he was not able to serve out his full tenure.  So yes, that’s another fact that we can substantiate, that there were generals who did leave earlier than what their tenure would be and the characteristic they all shared together is they did disagree with the administration on various points.”

General Mattis is an old-school warrior known for his colorful rhetoric and his commitment both to his men and to his mission.  He, along with other generals like David Petraeus and Stanley McChrystal, did have a problem with Obama’s quest for a substitute for victory in Iraq and Afghanistan.

As the New York Post reported:

Officially, the administration offers a nothing-to-see-here explanation for Mattis’ departure, noting that his tenure in the crucial job was about average for the post.  Maybe.  But politics is at play here as well.  The brusque Mattis apparently fell afoul of National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, an Obama apparatchik.  Why?  Because Mattis says things the Obama team doesn’t want to hear, especially about what might well become the next theater of operations – Iran.

Okay, maybe Mattis was saying things Trump didn’t want to hear about tactics and strategies, but we have only one commander-in-chief at a time, and the one we have now is trying to rebuild the military, so we can win wars, not letting the military atrophy while generals who want to win are purged.

We have not only ISIS jihadis to worry about.  We have the Iranian nuclear threat, an expansionist China with sub-launched nuclear missiles capable of hitting U.S. cities, and a belligerent Russia developing hypersonic missiles we might not be able to stop as it negotiates with a crumbling Venezuela to base its nuclear-capable bombers on an island not far from Caracas.

So chill out, Chicken Littles of the left and right.  There is an adult in the room.  His name is Donald J. Trump.

Con-Artist, AntiAmerican Obama –“Still Democrats’ Best Messenger”

This guy is — still — Democrats’ best messenger

(CNN)It’s been a while since we heard much of anything from Barack Obama — aka the 44th President of the United States.

In a piece for New York magazine headlined “Where is Barack Obama,” author Gabriel Debenedetti summed up the Obama absence nicely:
“How did the most ubiquitous man in America for eight years virtually disappear? Over the course of his presidency, Obama cast himself as the country’s secular minister as much as its commander-in-chief, someone who understood the moral core of the nation and felt compelled to insist that we live up to it. What explains his near absence from the political stage, where he might argue publicly against the reversals of his policy accomplishments, and also from American life more broadly? What is keeping him from speaking more frequently about the need to protect democratic norms and the rule of law, to be decent people? Where is the man who cried after Sandy Hook and sang in Charleston, who after each mass shooting tried to soothe an outraged nation, who spoke of American values in his travels across the globe? And, tactically, what is behind the relative silence of one of the most popular figures alive just as American politics appears to so many to be on the brink of breaking?”
Obama’s self-imposed exile has been felt even more acutely by Democrats of late, as President Donald Trump has seen events conspire to hand him a golden opportunity to remake the Supreme Court and the party Obama once led has shown signs of devolving into the same sort of establishment vs. grassroots war that Republicans weathered in 2016 — and ultimately produced Trump’s candidacy and presidency.
The vacuum created by Obama’s absence has led to a reemergence — and not in a good way — of former president Bill Clinton, who has repeatedly shown himself to be a politician well past his prime. So, too, Hillary Clinton who seems happy to spend her time re-litigating the 2016 election.
And then, on Thursday, Obama came back — at least for a night, and reminded Democrats of what they’d been missing.
Speaking at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in Los Angeles, Obama delivered the stop-feeling-sorry-for-yourselves speech that only he could.
“If what you are doing requires no sacrifice at all, then you can do more,” Obama said. “If you are one of these folks who is watching cable news at your cocktail parties with your friends and you are saying ‘civilization is collapsing’ and you are nervous and worried, but that is not where you are putting all your time, energy and money, then either you don’t actually think civilization is collapsing … or you are not pushing yourself hard enough and I would push harder.”
That “tough love” message is one only someone in Obama’s very unique position can deliver. None of the dozens — and I mean dozens — of 2020 Democratic aspirants would scold the party to stop feeling sorry for itself, to stop just getting angry at Trump and to get off their asses and do something. They’d be too afraid of alienating some or all of the party base by urging them to do more. And aside from Obama, there’s simply no one from the party’s past — see above on the Clintons — who can deliver that message either.
Obama left office riding high. In a January 2017 CNN poll, 60% approved of the job he was doing — including 95% of Democrats. No Democratic politician — or Republican one — has numbers like that.
What Obama’s appearance Thursday night should remind everyone — Democrats and Republicans — is that the former president is a remarkable campaigner/candidate. His gifts on that front cannot be questioned, no matter how you assess his eight years as president. There’s a reason he won with 365 electoral votes in 2008 and 332 electoral votes in 2012.
From his speaking style to his charisma, he is the best that Democrats (still) have. The question for Democrats is how much Obama is willing to do for them between now and November, particularly given his reticence to speak out against Trump to date (Worth noting: In his speech at the DNC fundraiser on Thursday night, Obama never mentioned Trump by name).
According to CNN’s Dan MericaObama will reemerge onto the political landscape in the coming months:
“A host of Democrats said that the former president has signaled to top lawmakers and operatives that he will be stepping up his involvement in the midterms soon and is telling friends and advisers that his priorities are flipping the House and backing up redistricting efforts led by former Attorney General Eric Holder’s National Democratic Redistricting Committee.
“Obama’s midterm strategy is not yet fully formed and his top advisers are still plotting the role he hopes to play the election. And while his message is a work in progress, Obama will likely urge Democrats to keep up the momentum they have shown over the last 18 months.”
If Obama makes good on that plan, that’s good news for Democrats. As Obama proved again Thursday night, he’s the best thing the party has going for it. Still.

The Obama, Clinton, Kerry Creators of Foul Iran Deal Whine Over Iran Foul Deal Fate

SARAH SANDERS RESPONDS TO IRAN CRITICS

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

This is an example of why I like Sarah Sanders. From yesterday’s press briefing:

Q Thank you, Sarah. Yesterday, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and former President Barack Obama all weighed in on the President’s Iran decision. A sampling of what they said: John Kerry was, it “weakens our security, breaks America’s word, isolates us from our European allies.” President Obama — former President Obama said that — called for, “principled, fact-based, and unifying leadership that can best secure our country.” And then Hillary Clinton said, “Our credibility is shot.” And they called it a mistake. What is the President’s response to them? And what does the White House think about those former Obama administration officials commenting on this and the appropriateness of that?

MS. SANDERS: I think based on each of those individuals’ lack of success in this entire process on foreign affairs, they would probably be the last three people that we would look to for advice and counsel, and whether or not we had made the right decisions.

My sentiments exactly.

Glenn Replies:   This is the remarkable American era of Donald John Trump, President and fan of these United States.   The Schumer-Pelosi leftist  hate-Trump crowd in Congress has to this date, a year and a half into his presidency,  been  undertaking  a policy to disrupt, corrupt, delay, sabotage  approvals of President Trump’s administration management selections in order to cause delay, disruption and disorder throughout the Trump administration.

Sarah Sanders is the daughter of popular, quick-minded former Governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee,  one of the most gifted Governor spokesman in the country over the past century.
