On a hot and wet September afternoon in northern Virginia, a number of interesting matters appear in the day’s news.
The presidential campaign of 2016 has so far been a humdinger. With all of the republic’s most dangerous enemies gathered under the leadership of the Clintons, the race has become a kind of life-and-death match. A Trump win would see him and Governor Pence initiate America’s long road back to prosperity, nationalism, commonsense, social cohesiveness, and a war-avoiding foreign policy. A Clinton win, on the other hand, would force the issue of how dissenting Americans will choose to dispose, with some finality, of what surely will be Hillary’s continuing implementation of tyranny. The building blocks for more tyranny would be Clinton’s naming of Supreme Court justices to codify more legal preference for her party’s various slave colonies; her starting and losing of more unnecessary and bankrupting interventionist wars; her maintenance of a coddled, bribed, and controlled media; her imposition of punitive taxes on working Americans and their employers to support foreigners, migrants, illegal aliens, the Democrats’ slave colonies, as well as to eliminate middle-class jobs via trade deals and the fabricated climate-change crisis; and her party’s final destruction of the Constitution, the idea of equality before the law, the middle class, the primacy of the English language, American history, and the Christianity that always has been and still is a key part of the republic’s social fabric.
Mr. Trump, you have fallen into a snare placed for you by the Republican establishment people on your team, most of the media, and by Hillary Clinton and her advisers.
“If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no resource left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers, may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual state.” — Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers, No. 28 (1)
The bipartisan governing elite’s panic over Mr. Trump’s potential for destroying their cozy, elitist, bribe-filled, war-causing, and increasingly authoritarian culture is quite clear in the self-righteous, all-knowing, and citizenry-hating anti-Trump letter published on 8 August 2016. It was signed by 50 Republicans who identify themselves as foreign-policy experts, which in both parties is code for “arrogant and war-loving interventionists.”
The past week added a bit of clarity to the citizenry’s ability to understand the lawless forces that have backed Obama and now back Hillary Clinton, as well as more evidence — if more was needed — that Clinton, if elected, will regard herself as another Obama-like, ruler-by-diktat. Clinton told the media that she would start by giving amnesty to 12 million illegal aliens — a number, thanks to Obama and Clinton, that now includes murderous Islamists — thereby ignoring both the law and the fact that most Americans have made it clear that they do not want 12 million more non-English-speaking, largely uneducated, and mostly bound-for-welfare foreigners sticking their hands into working Americans’ pockets and taking money from them and their families.
The very best part of the Democratic Convention was the evident panic among party leaders over the clear chance that Donald Trump may intend to construct a foreign policy grounded in the concept of America First.
The Democratic Party’s convention twice put a wonderfully bright spotlight on how that party has ruined the American educational system by involving the federal government in education. The convention’s slogan for the first night, for example, was “United Together,” which is a phrase that is as stupidly redundant and it is meaningless. And yet, the party’s apparatus, the delegations from each of the party’s enslaved colonies of minorities, and the 80-percent of the media that has its collective head up Hillary’s derriere thought the slogan was a stroke of genius. “Yes, that’s us,” American teachers, told their students the next day, “we are united together.” I hope that at least one of the little brainwashed urchins had the sense and moxie to ask, “Oh, Teacher, could we be ‘united apart’ or ‘disunited together’?” Surely, such a child would be punished for asking the question — perhaps having to memorize “Socialism for Kids” or write “Saul Alinsky” on the blackboard 500 times.
The attack in Nice, France, on 14 July 2015, has set off another festival of death in Europe, complete with candles, flowers, tears, and handwritten notes. This is the current European generation’s consistently effete and feckless answer to the murderous acts of war inflicted on them by Islamist fighters. It is a tradition good for florists, stationers, candle-makers, and handkerchief producers, but it is merely a source of endless mirth for the Islamists, and horror for the few adults remaining in the West.
Waking on Friday to see that the British had voted to unchain themselves from their socialist EU masters in Brussels was a marvelous experience. In so doing, they decided to return to adulthood, and to running their own nation, in their own interests, for better or worse. On both sides of the Atlantic, the leftist media will now thunder about the xenophobia of Britons and their stupid and self-destructive behavior in seeing and accepting the economic costs of reestablishing nationhood. The name-calling will continue but the economic roils will slowly calm, and the nation’s revenues will increase as payments are halted to the EU’s terminally begging and congenitally wasteful adolescent states, such as Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain. Hereon, Britain’s government also can do more to secure the nation by making and enforcing immigration laws that meet the majority’s demands, by ending military intervention abroad, and by legally deporting those deemed dangerous or subversive, all without the busybody milquetoasts in Brussels gumming up the works.
