Paul Nachman discusses this remarkable video compilation, showcasing Donald J. Trump through the decades, "declaring his love of country and acknowledging a reluctant willingness—if he sees the need—to step up and serve it."

The consistency, the clarity is striking, also inspiring.

Trump has been thinking about how to #MAGA adult life at least since he was in his early 30s.

November 8 is the day to help him begin.


The wisdom (and humor) of the American people is sustaining!     


A good point. Looking back on the vicious attacks on Sarah Palin and her family, I came across a series of 2010 tweets from one of those dime-a-dozen demons among us, this one in the post-modern guise of a "comedian" known as Louis C.K., real name Louis Szekely. 

The tweets, which I missed the first time around, are the vile ravings of a demented person. They are also, in postmodern parlance, "sexist," "offensive" and demeaning -- dehumanizing -- to anyone reading such stupidly obscene invective about an exceptional American woman who is a wife, mother, former governor or Alaska, and former GOP vice presidential candidate. 

No, of course, Louis C.K. is not running for president. His filthy remarks about Palin are...

This is the first paragraph of an email from Bill Ivey to John Podesta, which was among a Wikileaks release this week, as first reported by Infowars' Paul Joseph Watson here.

Bill Ivey is a well-connected Democrat with a capital "D." According to his bio at his website, titled, Global Cultural Strategies, this folklore scholar and "experienced non profit executive" served as Bill Clinton's NEA director from 1998-2001, is a trustee for the Center for American Progress, and was a "Team Leader in the Barack Obama presidential transition." 

John Podesta, of course, is chairman of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

There is something almost magical about this three and a half minutes of video, capturing that pre-debate moment when Donald Trump began again to pull back his slingshot and aim, this time with more accuracy and sureness, at the Uniparty-Unimedia Behemoth; this time, with righteous women at his side.

Paula, Juanita and Kathleen: Thank you for standing up and speaking out about what the Clintons did to you for all these many years. Kathy, thank you for coming forward more recently to add your name to this crucially important quest to expose the Clintons' corruption and violation not only of your precious persons, but of the entire body politic.

You, and women like you, personally suffered the torment that the rapacious and meglomanical Clinton couple has inflicted; and that the political-media phalanx, from MSM-Left to Bush-Family-Right, which has served and protected the Clintons for all of these decades, made seemingly eternal. It is this phalanx that stood in the way of justice; that ignored...

Did this lewdest, crudest and most putrid behavior (not talk), ever drive press and Democratic party elders to call on President Bill Clinton to resign? Never. 


As the globalists leave what they hope and pray and have planned and calculated is a sinking USS Deplorables, opening hatches as they disembark, preening, in a cloud of noxious hypocrisy, it is not enough to say, Good riddance.

It is time to nail their hypocrisy to the wall, revealing the moral depravity underneath -- and, more immediately dangerous, the political movement that will finally and completely destroy this nation under another Clinton. 

This is a long (maybe lifelong) project. But time is short. I will focus today narrowly on the hypocrisy of the onslaught du jour -- how it is that the political-media complex is trying to eliminate Donald Trump before Election Day with calls for him to "step aside" over his 2005 hot mic conversation on a tv set with host Billy Bush. This was released to "the press" on the same day that a signal 2013 speech to a Brazilian bank by Hillary Clinton came to us little people, not from the dark arts masters of the Clinton campaign, of course, but through Wikileaks.

On the tenth anniversary of Wikileaks, Julian Assange spoke with Spiegel, which, in case it is unclear from the interview questions below, is a publication of the journalistic persuasion. 

I find I have not written about Assange for some years. I wrote in his defense back when the Rightward world, from Rush to Jonah Goldberg to Sarah Palin to Bill Kristol and on and on, was calling for his head, literally, in murderous terms not inspired even by an Aldrich Ames. On review, I also find this nasty bit from...

Last month, American Betrayal received its 235th 5-star review at Amazon, for which I am very grateful. The review also includes a somewhat startling admission.

Extremely kind words aside, is it not a jolt to see the reviewer's explanation as to why it had taken three years before he or she got around to reading a book pre-ordered in 2013? 

A commentator named Charlene picked up on this same point this week, writing in reply:

While pondering whether we will ever realize how good we had it when riches and plenty were such that the Washington Post could freak out about "gender barriers" in bartending (...let that sink in a moment...) I note the extent to which the Food section is raw agit prop.

From midway down the lead story by M. Carrie Allan, "Get Everyone in the Mix: The craft cocktail has helped some women rise as bartenders, but old biases die hard":

... But it’s made me wonder: When a subculture identifies deeply with a historical heyday in which women and minorities had little place, does some of that baggage seep into modern iterations, disguised as simple aesthetics?

North Carolina State Troopers having a word of fellowship and prayer before being deployed on the streets of Charlotte.

H/t @DebraBurlingame

On October 17, 1997, President Bill Clinton was in Buenos Aires, boosting Mercosur, yet another sovereignty-eroding "free" trading bloc, this one in South America.   

He spoke quite frankly about his intentions to reorganize the world by merging economies into a global system. 


Clinton said:

What I'm trying to do is to promote a process of reorganization of the world so that human beings are organized in a way that takes advantage of the new opportunities of this era and permits them to beat back the problems. ...

The official White House portrait


Will this dark story become a campaign issue -- a matter set before the people as a measure of Hillary Clinton's character, and, it should be said, soul? By her own recorded audio account, Hillary Clinton was not simply providing professional legal counsel to a pedophile/rapist as our justice system requires. She was getting him off by any means necessary -- never mind the Arkansas 6th-grader who had been sexually and brutally assaulted -- at the beginning of a long, self-branded and thoroughly hypocritical career...

I could not have prepared better for Lou Dobbs' question last night regarding Trump's weaker polling with the weaker sex than having watched this video -- "I Thought You Should Know.

The video introduces a brutal rape of a 12-year-old girl that took place in 1975 in Arkansas. A 41-year-old man named Thomas Alfred Taylor stood trial. His defense counsel was a freshly minted lawyer named Hillary Rodham. She got him off.

Once you start reading more deeply into this case, thanks to the crack research of Alana Goodman for the Washington Free Beacon, which broke the story open in 2014, it becomes clear: This case is Hillary Clinton's Chappaquiddick -- the original moral stain, which, as with Ted Kennedy, once exposed, becomes her ultimate undoing.  

Clinton's involvement in this Arkansas child-rape trial was not a matter of providing counsel to a defendant, as our system requires. It was jumping through...

Have a listen -- with thanks to Andrew Bostom for capturing the segment. 

It's got to be Trump. You tell me how else to read the headline of today's lead story in the Washington Post:

Russia suspected of election scheme


Potential disruptions to balloting feared, officials say

If Hillary Clinton's election were really in the bag the way they keep telling us it is, I find it hard to believe that the Washington Post, anti-Trump to a Pravda-like rev of agit-prop-hysterics, would be laying down the line that Russian election tampering is to be "feared" in November. 

The story opens:

U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies are investigating what they see as a broad...

Ever wonder how the zealous-half lives?

Peter Sutherland, UN Special Representative for Migration, is one among the zealots. After sleuthing around, I'm fairly certain his "holiday home" is that thing (above), located along a breathtaking stretch of European seacost.

Cold, grandiose, disturbing; It looks like a cartoonist's vision of a Global Super-Villain's Hideaway, which, of course, it is. 

As an alumnus of Goldman Sachs, the LSE, a founding director general of the WTO, GATT, a member of the Trilateral Commission, a regular at Bilderburger, etc., etc., Sutherland has built a resume that is such a cliched roster of secretive multi-national elite sinecures that one might almost start thinking he was part of some worldwide conspiracy to destroy the West. 

Only that would be a "conspiracy theory."  

Still, what better place to conspire than in this...

Watch Andrew Bostom say the things that need to be said in this powerful speech delivered in Los Angeles earlier this month at the American Freedom Alliance Conference, "Islam and Western Civilization."

It is particularly a propos as such Lewis acolytes as Paul Wolfowitz come out for war-mongering Hillary Clinton.

In 2000, Jeane J. Kirkpatrick made an acute observation that I've not heard any other observer point out: the switch from "liberal isolationism" to "global engagement" -- almost overnight -- that coincided with the arrival of the Clintons in the White House.

In Commentary, she wrote:

When the Reagan administration offered arms and training to the Nicaraguan resistance, law professors all over America pronounced the policy illegal and utterly rejected the argument that force could under certain circumstances be used to restore or protect democracies. As late as 1989, when the U.S. intervened in Panama under George Bush, leading liberals in and out of Congress described this action as the clearest possible violation of the UN Charter's prohibition on force, and professors of international law reminded all and sundry that the use of force against another state is never justified except in self-defense, a concept that was itself to be very narrowly interpreted.

In Sharia-Britain, patriots are not permitted to sit in a pub and watch football with their children.

Western hero Tommy Robinson and two friends and their seven kids among them went to such a British pub, the Prince Regent, I think I heard, to watch football and have lunch.

Police showed up in force to disperse Tommy FOR NO REASON. On being asked to explain Tommy's offense, they issued him a citation.

Please watch. Even after Tommy and his party leave the pub, the police follow them (around Minute 15), down the lane. They don't even care when the little girls start crying.

That's how police states work.


Earlier this week, the Daily Beast published a piece by serial liar, disinformation artist, mixer-upper and Hillary-Clinton-supporter Ron Radosh. (I will resist noting that they deserve each other, but they do.) It is called: "Steve Bannon, Trump's Top Guy, Told Me He Was a `Leninist,' Who `Wants to Destroy the State."

According to the laws of punctuation, the quotation marks around `Leninist' and `Wants to Destroy the State' indicate that these words are actual quotations, but the whole "conversation" smells of a rat.

Why? For starters, Radosh --...

I am canvassing the news outlets on the shot-in-the-arm presidential election news that Stephen K. Bannon and Kellyanne Conway have vaulted to the helm of the Trump campaign.

Note that Kellyanne Conway, widely respected as a seasoned political pollster, is attracting far, far less attention than Steve Bannon in a news media endlessly concerned (obsessed) with all things female (more accurately, all things non-white-male). As usual, media "concern" (obsession) is exposed as a sham, a means only to advance the Left-wing agenda. (See "feminist"/media rejection of female victims of Bill Clinton's sex crimes for more examples.) 

Clearly, the ascension of Kellyanne Conway does not advance this Left-wing agenda. As the first woman to become campaign manager of a GOP presidential campaign, Conway's very appointment silences one stupid anti-Trump mantra, "he hates women," in a soundbyte. Besides that -- and I only say "besides that" because that's how these bean-counters think -- Conway is a highly regarded, savvy political professional. Therefore, MSM strategy goes (conscious and subconscious), best to overlook that Conway story and see what we can do with anti-Establishment Right and Left Steve Bannon, hmmm? So controversial!!

Writing in the Washington Times today, Rowan Scarborough examines the resumes of those 50 "national security Republicans" to sign the latest group-hissy-fit over the fact that 14 million Republican primary voters ignored them and made Donald Trump the GOP presidential nominee.

What does Scarborough find? Fifteen consultants and/or lobbyists, some investors, a bunch of lawyers with corporate clients, fourteen think tankers and nine professors. 


Welcome to the world Washington Insiders terrified that Donald Trump will derail the gravy train and call out their decades of foreign policy disasters.

Muhammad Al Adnani, spokesman for Al Qaeda in Iraq (and later for the Islamic State), as i.d.'d by the DIA in August 2012.


Drawing on an August 2012 Defense Intelligence Agency cable, one of the documents currently spilling out of "secret" archives that buttresses Donald Trump's depiction of President Obama and Hillary Clintons as "founders" of ISIS, Breitbart News reports that Hillary Clinton was well aware that that "the Obama administration was supporting Al Qaeda in Iraq, the terrorist group that became the Islamic State." 

The cable also discusses the emergence of a broader Islamic state from the jihadist factions represented by al-Adnani, which were being supported by "the West,...

Lead story, The Hill, August 16, 2016


In a previous post, I note the deceptive practice by the MSM of presenting Clinton-linked political professionals as non-aligned experts.

The 24/7 deception by the MSM of presenting themselves as non-aligned news professionals goes without saying.

Only sometimes it doesn't.

Sure, there is the often mindless, and also often lawyerly shading and shaping of news that is constant, and thus hard to keep up with as it just washes over us. In this category, I would put the NYT/CNN's Maggie Haberman's recent expert assessment of that complex of soul-and-nation-devouring Clinton corruption, most currently on view in putrid gushers of unsecured email and other...

The MSM is openly organized as Clinton 2016 General HQ. We know that.

For a reality check, just imagine if Donald Trump's campaign manager ever sat on the board of a company that "bagged $35 million from Putin-connected Russian govnt fund"  -- as did Hillary's campaign manager, John Podesta. (Podesta's lobbyist brother, Tony, does all right in Putinworld, too.)

Or, if Donald Trump approved the sale of 20 percent of US uranium deposits to Putin's Russia -- as SecState Hillary Clinton did.

What with the Clinton Foundation in the news lately for being at the locus of Hillary Clinton's mind-blowing corruption, selling-out of national patrimony, and the like, I thought it would be nice to revisit the glory days of the old place -- as in 2012 when Saudi Arabian Prince Turki, Bill Clinton's Georgetown roommate and, more important, the Saudi dictatorship's former intelligence chief and brother-in-law of Prince Bandar, the Saudi dictatorship's former US Ambassador, came around to toss the following bouquet to Bill Clinton.

"Muslims will never forget your deliverance of Bosnia-Herzogovenia and Kosovo, and near-deliverance, within 100 meters, of Palestine from occupation."

Dear DNC,

Doubtless, I would reach more people if I wrote the following message in a private, hackable email, but I am concerned Russian cyber-trolls are distracted this week by heaps more breaking scandal about Hillary Clinton's loyal services to what some people like to call "Mother Russia."

Watch around Minute 8 to see Allen rationalize Muslim-on-infidel "insider attacks" as resulting from Ramadan fasting, bad weather and "operational tempo."


Ret. Marine Gen. and former ISAF commander John R. Allen, who spoke for Hillary Clinton at the DNC convention last week, has now taken on the role of Clinton campaign surrogate to attack Donald Trump for having "no credibility."

Let's talk about credibility -- Allen's.

Allen is a lot more than square shoulders and four stars. He is 1) a perfect exemplar of dhimmitude, an Islamic apologist extraordinaire, one who has even rationalized the murders of his own men by Muslim "insider attacks" (see below);  2) Allen stands as tall as a moral midget, "exonerated" by a Pentagon IG in much the same way as Hillary Clinton was "exonerated" by the FBI.

In a normal world, such a man would be shunned by any respectable politician seeking public support. But this is not a normal world, and Hillary Clinton is not a respectable...

Always a pleasure to go on with Jeff Nyquist and Allan Dos Santos on "Update Brazil."

In this, the 38th show, we puzzle through the conventions, the candidates -- and Putin.    

A British court has ruled against Vladimir Bukovsky's libel suit against the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

In brief (background here, verdict here, Bukovsky statement below), Bukovsky sued the CPS for libel over its public announcement in May 2015 that he was to be prosecuted for "making" five images of child pornography. This term of legal art, Bukovsky argued logically, implies to the average person that he was to be prosecuted as a child pornographer for "making" five images of child pornography. In fact, the state's criminal case against Bukovsky, which will come to court in December, will turn on whether Bukovsky possesed five mages of child pornography on his laptop -- which was very mysteriously seized by British authorities in October 2014.

Note: Out of all of the many, many journalists, commentators, and political professionals, from neocon to liberal, currently ventilating the storyline that Donald Trump is Putin's Man and Hillary Clinton is Gen. MacArthur (discussed here), none that I know of has expressed the slightest interest or concern about an alarming case of international importance that has the earmarks of a realtime Russian operation against a fearless critic of the Putin regime. 

I refer to the plight of the fearless critic of Soviet and Russian dictatorship, Vladimir Bukovsky, currently fighting to save his heroic reputation in a legal struggle that many believe has its origins in Moscow.

Here is a run-down on the great Bukovsky's case from May: "Bukovsky vs. the British Crown -- vs. the Kremlin?"

It's one thing to look back on 7/7/2005 and remember the jihad assault on the heart of a great city that caused the murders of 52 innocents, the shattering of peace and safety, leaving unbowed the British determination to commit suicide by "multiculturalism" -- something I have more recently come to understand as nation-murder by the state.)

But how have things been going since?

After a band of jihadis brought terror to the heart of the London on 7/72005 -- winning trips to Islamic paradise, according to Allah's law -- I wrote the following column. I am not at all happy to say it remains topical.

"Burnt Offerings on the Altar of Multiculturalism"  

Only one faith on Earth may be more messianic than Islam: multiculturalism.

Without it -- without its fanatics who believe all civilizations are the same -- the engine that projects Islam into the unprotected heart of Western civilization would stall and fail. It's as simple as that. To live among the believers -- the multiculturalists -- is to watch the assault, the jihad, take place un-repulsed by our suicidal societies. These societies are not doomed to submit; rather, they are eager to do so in the name of a masochistic brand of tolerance that, short of drastic measures, is surely terminal.

Of course, "FBI Director" Comey will not recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton. But that is not what is worst about this latest wretched day in American history. 

What child, what babe, what fuzzy bunny ever expected that he would? Who among us examined the facts of the case as they emerged and rested assured that Justice would be done -- that is, done blindly, with no special-case, extra-stretchy, wink-wink regard for the Clintons?

One law for thee and me and one law for the Clintons and ilk, and who doesn't know it. That is the greatest offense, and it's nothing new. Just think "Banana Republic."

Mickey Rooney in Ah, Wilderness, the excellent 1935 movie version of the Eugene O'Neill play by the same name.


Once and for about 200 years, the biggest danger on the Fourth of July was that the braver, wilder, dumber, dearest boys (yet untamed and "focused" by Ritalin doping) might get hold of some M-80s -- a quarter stick of dynamite, so the lore went -- and blow a finger off.

Which could be pretty awful; but today ... I don't have to draw a picture. Suffice it to say, it is now a core part of US Indepedence Day celebrations for federal, state and local authorities to be on highest alert for an Islamic bomb; for "First Responders" to be at the ready with stretchers, turnicots, oxygen tanks, in case random Muslims successfully execute Koran-holy jihad, and, then, they believe, find Allah's highest reward for killing infidels in Islamic paradise, an orgiastic "heaven" with 72 underage...

January 15, 2011: Two More Americans Killed by the Great Society Abroad 

Just as the Great Society didn't work in our own country on our own people, the Great Society Abroad doesn't work on alien peoples in foreign cultures, either. It didn't work in Vietnam, as discussed here by the late Peter Braestrup, and it doesn't work in Iraq or Afghanistan. This means that it's not a military defeat that faces us on what I wish were imminent withdrawal from the umma (oh, happy day, and good riddance), but rather another costly validation of the fact that social engineering doesn't work, even with guns.

Back in the fall of 2010, the question was, what was up with FBI outreach to known-Hamas-op Kifah Mustapha? Everybody at a Washington intelligence conference this week told me to ask the FBI. So I did.

I wrote the following column about their answers:

"They Call It Intelligence" October 7, 2010

Reading Patrick Poole's splashy coverage of the FBI's VIP treatment of Kifah Mustapha -- a known Hamas operative and unindicted co-conspirator in the landmark Holy Land Foundation terror financing trial -- will make your head spin with this dizzying question:

How could the same officials charged with securing the nation against the very terrorism Mustapha's activities supported (as laid out in court documents filed by federal investigators) have possibly invited him into the top-secret National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) and the FBI's training center at Quantico during a six-week "Citizen's Academy" hosted by the FBI as "outreach" to the Muslim community?

Watching Sen. Cruz question DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson about the absence of the word, "jihad," the enemy threat doctrine of our "homeland's" most lethal enemy, in the latest government security and strategy documents, I am struck anew by how very long this official effort to suppress the facts about Islam (not, not, not "Radicalislam") has been going on -- throughout the Obama administration, of course, but long before it began. This battle of suppression was already being waged when on September 17, 2001 President George W. Bush told the nation, "Islam is peace." Soon he would send armies into that Islamic world of peace to do battle, wholly ignorant of Islamic war, or jihad.

All these years later, the campaign is still a success -- if, that is, the point is to protect Islam, not the "homeland" from Islamic attack.

When it comes to Big Lies about Islam, nothing much has changed except...
