Paul Ryan's upside-down RINO establishment vision of political unity



If there's one thing Paul Ryan has honed during his years in Washington, it's Washington-speak.
The Speaker's March 23 address, broadcast from the Ways and Means Committee chamber – where he was surrounded only by press and House interns – is an example of just how adept he's become at it.
Whose Unity Are We Talking About, Anyway?
With soaring rhetoric, Ryan appealed for unity – unity in Congress, unity among the public, unity as a nation.  We should test theories and ideas, he asserted, rather than impugning motives.  The cost of political division is high, he noted; it undermines people's faith in their representatives, their faith in government.  The system works, he explained, only if we have mutual respect for one another.

The problem is that Washington's elite class, of which Paul Ryan has become a top-ranking member, hasn't had any respect for the rest of us for a very long time.  Consequently, yes, we have lost faith in our representatives and in our government.  It's not just a bunch of us out here, frustrated over nothing.   Most of the reasons for our dissatisfaction, disillusionment, and anger either reside in our nation's capital or are the brain-children of those who do.

Quite frankly, the whole of Ryan's speech comes down to this: a Washington blue-blood reminds us uncooperative plebeians that we should smile and hold hands and trust our leaders so that they can continue to inspire us with their spectacular and never-ending betrayals – betrayals such as Paul Ryan's ongoing embrace of massive spending, lopsided trade agreements, and troubling immigration policies.  In fact, in light of this week's fresh attacks by radical Islamists in Brussels, Belgium, Ryan's already unpopular stance on immigration is likely growing more so by the minute.

DO NOT DISOBEY QUEEN MICHELLE OBAMA.



The federal government is taking steps to fine schools that do not comply with Queen Michelle Obama’s school lunch rules.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service issued a proposed rule Monday to codify parts of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which was championed by Mrs. Obama.

The regulation would punish schools and state departments with fines for “egregious or persistent disregard” for the lunch rules that imposed sodium and calorie limits and banned white grains.

Hey; I’m not making this crap up.

Paul Ryan to have a “Mystery Challenger”



A wealthy businessman with tea party ties confirmed Sunday that he is mounting a primary challenge to House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, saying that after donating to the Wisconsin Republican’s past campaigns he feels “betrayed” by the speaker on trade deals and immigration.

The businessman, who is not yet revealing his identity, promised that his run will “shake up the establishment in a profound way,” according to a political consultant close to the prospective candidate.

The emergence of a viable Republican challenger in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District is the culmination of a month long recruitment effort by tea party activists who say they were double-crossed by Mr. Ryan when he passed a $2 trillion spending package late last year.

CROOKED POLITICS AS USUAL.



Ted Cruz Gains in Louisiana After Loss There to Donald Trump

Despite coming up short in state’s Republican presidential primary, Texan controls key convention roles

Donald Trump beat Sen. Ted Cruz earlier this month in Louisiana’s Republican presidential primary by 3.6 percentage points, but the Texan may wind up with as many as 10 more delegates from the state than the businessman.

Mr. Cruz’s supporters also seized five of Louisiana’s six slots on the three powerful committees that will write the rules and platform at the Republican National Convention and mediate disputes over delegates’ eligibility this summer in Cleveland.
The little-noticed inside maneuvering that led to this outcome in Louisiana is another dramatic illustration of the inside game that could have an outsize influence on the bitter race for the GOP nomination. A similar process played out three weeks ago in Coweta County, Ga.

It's Become Open Season on Donald Trump.



Following is a very interesting email going around which has gone viral.   It somehow has been falsely attributed to Bill Bennett.
The essay titled “Interesting Take on Trump” was first posted in a political forum hosted by the website One Political Plaza on November 14, 2015.  The person who posted it said they’d received it via email.  From there, the “Interesting Take on Trump” essay was posted on other message boards and quickly went viral.

Regardless of who the original author may have been, it is a very interesting read.


What I See Happening In a Trump Presidency!!!!!
By author unknown

"They will kill him before they let him be president.  It could be a Republican or a Democrat that instigates the shutting up of Trump.

Don’t be surprised if Trump has an accident.  Some people are getting very nervous:  Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Jon Corzine, to name just a few.

It's about the unholy dynamics between big government, big business, and big media.  They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this partnership, and it's in all of their interests to protect one another. It's one for all and all for one.  It’s a heck of a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich, everyone except the American people.  We get ripped off.  We’re the patsies.  But for once, the powerful socialist cabal and the corrupt crony capitalists are scared.  The over-the-top reaction to Trump by politicians of both parties, the media, and the biggest corporations of
America has been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests they are all threatened and frightened.

Donald Trump can self-fund.  No matter how much they say to the contrary, the media, business, and political elite understand that Trump is no joke.  He could actually win and upset their nice cozy apple cart.

It's no coincidence that everyone has gotten together to destroy The Donald.  It's because most of the other politicians are part of the a good old boys club.  They talk big, but they won’t change a thing.  They are all beholden to big-money donors.  They are all owned by lobbyists, unions, lawyers, gigantic environmental organizations, and multinational corporations – like Big Pharmacy or Big Oil.  Or they are owned lock, stock, and barrel by foreigners like George Soros owns Obama or foreign governments own Hillary and their Clinton Foundation donations.

These run-of-the-mill establishment politicians are all puppets owned by big money.  But there's one man who isn't beholden to anyone.  There's one man who doesn't need foreigners, or foreign governments, or George Soros, or the United Auto Workers, or the teacher's union, or the Service Employees International Union, or the Bar Association to fund his campaign.

Billionaire tycoon and maverick Donald Trump doesn’t need anyone’s help.  That means he doesn’t care what the media says.  He doesn’t care what the corporate elites think.  That makes him very dangerous to the entrenched interests.  That makes Trump a huge threat to those people.  Trump can ruin everything for the bribed politicians and their spoiled slave masters.

Don’t you ever wonder why the GOP has never tried to impeach Obama? Don’t you wonder why John Boehner and Mitch McConnell talk a big game, but never actually try to stop Obama? Don’t you wonder why Congress holds the purse strings, yet has never tried to de-fund Obamacare or Obama’s clearly illegal executive action on amnesty for illegal aliens?  Bizarre, right?  It defies logic, right?

First, I'd guess many key Republicans are being bribed.  Secondly, I believe many key Republicans are being blackmailed.  Whether they are having affairs, or secretly gay, or stealing taxpayer money, the National Security Agency knows everything.

Ask former House Speaker Dennis Hastert about that.  The government even knew he was withdrawing large sums of his own money from his own bank account.  The NSA, the
SEC, the IRS, and all the other three-letter government agencies are watching every Republican political leader.  They surveil everything.  Thirdly, many Republicans are petrified of being called racists, so they are scared to ever criticize Obama or call out his crimes, let alone demand his impeachment.  Fourth , why rock the boat?  After defeat or retirement, if you’re a good old boy, you’ve got a $5 million-per-year lobbying job waiting.  The big-money interests have the system gamed.  Win or lose, they win.

But Trump doesn’t play by any of these rules.  Trump breaks up this nice, cozy relationship between big government, big media, and big business.  All the rules are out the window if Trump wins the Presidency.  The other politicians will protect Obama and his aides but not Trump.  Remember:  Trump is the guy who publicly questioned Obama's birth certificate.  He questioned Obama's college records and how a mediocre student got into an Ivy League university.  Now, he's doing something no Republican has the chutzpah to do.  He's questioning our relationship with Mexico; he's questioning why the border is wide open; he's questioning why no wall has been built across the border; he's questioning if allowing millions of illegal aliens into America is in our best interests; he's questioning why so many illegal aliens commit violent crimes, yet are not deported; and he's questioning why our trade deals with Mexico, Russia and China are so bad.

Trump has the audacity to ask out loud why American workers always get the short end of the stick.  Good question!  I'm certain Trump will question what happened to the almost billion dollars given in a rigged no-bid contract to college friends of Michelle Obama at foreign companies to build the defective Obamacare website. By the way, that tab is now up to $5 billion.  Trump will ask if Obamacare's architects can be charged with fraud for selling it by lying.  Trump will investigate Obama's widespread
IRS conspiracy, not to mention Obama's college records. Trump will prosecute Clinton and Obama for fraud committed to cover up Benghazi before the election. How about the fraud committed by employees of the Labor Department when they made up dramatic job numbers in the last jobs report before the 2012 election?

Obama, the multinational corporations and the media need to stop Trump.  They recognize this could get out of control.  If left unchecked, telling the raw truth and asking questions everyone else is afraid to ask, Trump could wake a sleeping giant.  Trump's election would be a nightmare.  Obama has committed many crimes.  No one else but Trump would dare to prosecute.  He will not hesitate. Once Trump gets in and gets a look at the cooked books and Obama's records, the game is over.  The goose is cooked.  Holder could wind up in prison.  Jarrett could wind up in prison.  Obama bundler Corzine could wind up in prison for losing $1.5 billion of customer money. 
Clinton could wind up in jail for deleting 32,000 emails or for accepting bribes from foreign governments while Secretary of State, or for misplacing $6 billion as the head of the State Department, or for lying about Benghazi.  The entire upper level management of the IRS could wind up in prison.

Obamacare will be de-funded and dismantled.  Obama himself could wind up ruined, his legacy in tatters.  Trump will investigate.  Trump will prosecute.  Trump will go after everyone involved.  That’s why the dogs of hell have been unleashed on Donald Trump.

Yes, it's become open season on Donald Trump.  The left and the right are determined to attack his policies, harm his businesses, and, if possible, even keep him out of the coming debates. But they can't silence him.  And they sure can't intimidate him.  The more they try, the more the public will realize that he's the one telling the truth".

The Rule-or-Ruin Republicans



The Rule-or-Ruin Republicans

March 22, 2016, 5:00 am

“Things reveal themselves passing away,” wrote W. B. Yeats.

Whatever one may think of Donald Trump, his campaign has done us a service — exposing the underbelly of a decaying establishment whose repudiation by America’s silent majority is long overdue.

According to The New York Times, super PACs of Trump’s GOP rivals, including PACs of candidates who have dropped out, are raising and spending millions to destroy the probable nominee.

Goals of the anti-Trump conspirators: Manipulate the rules and steal the nomination at Cleveland. Failing that, pull out all the stops and torpedo any Trump-led ticket in the fall. Then blame Trump and his followers for the defeat, pick up the pieces, and posture as saviors of the party they betrayed.

This is vindictiveness of a high order.

It brings to mind the fable of the “The Dog in the Manger,” the tale of the snarling cur that, out of pure malice, kept the hungry oxen from the straw they needed to eat.

Last week came reports on another closed conclave of the “Never Trump” cabal at the Army and Navy Club in D.C. Apparently, William Kristol circulated a memo detailing how to rob Trump of the nomination, even if he finishes first in states, votes and delegates.

Should Trump win on the first ballot, Kristol’s fallback position is to create a third party and recruit a conservative to run as its nominee.

Purpose: Have this rump party siphon off enough conservative votes to sink Trump and give the presidency to Hillary Rodham Clinton, whose policies are more congenial to the neocons and Kristol’s Weekly Standard.

Among the candidates Kristol is reportedly proposing are ex-Governor Rick Perry of Texas and former Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, both respected conservatives.

Kristol contends a third-party conservative candidate can win.
He can’t be serious. It is absurd to think Gov. Perry, whose poll numbers were so low that he dropped out of the race last September without winning a single primary, caucus, or even a delegate, could capture the White House on a third-party ticket.

Perry would not even be assured of winning his home state.

Trump and Perry would split the conservative vote in the Lone Star State and deliver its 36 electoral votes to Clinton, thus assuring a second Clinton presidency. Does Perry want that as his legacy?

As for Coburn, he is not nationally known. But his name on the ballot would take votes, one-for-one, from the Republican nominee.

How would that advance the causes for which Tom Coburn has devoted all of his public life?

Indeed, if the supreme imperative for Kristol and the “Never Trump” conservatives is to defeat him, they have become de facto allies of George Soros and MoveOn.org, Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street — and the party of Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton.

However, if the oligarchs, neocons and Trump-loathers, having failed to stop him in Cleveland, collude to destroy the GOP ticket in the fall, they have a chance of succeeding. And Clinton’s super PACs would surely be delighted to contribute to that cause.

But, again, what will they have accomplished?

Do they think that Republicans who stay loyal to the ticket will not see them for the selfish, rule-or-ruin, wrecking crew they have become? Do they think that if a Trump-led ticket is defeated, they will be restored to the positions of power and preeminence that a majority of their fellow Republicans have voted to strip away from them?

The Beltway has to come to terms with reality. It has not only lost the country; it has lost the party. It is not only these elites themselves who have been repudiated; it is their ideas and their agenda.

The American people want their borders secured, the invasion stopped, the manufacturing plants brought back and an end to the conscription of our best and bravest to fight wars dreamed up in the tax-exempt think tanks of neoconservatives.

Trump is winning because he speaks for the people. Look at those crowds.
Establishment pundits are now wailing that they have gotten the message, that they understand that they have not been listening.

But still, they refuse to act on this recognition.

In June of 1978, Gov. Jerry Brown of California, who had fought tirelessly against Proposition 13, which would slash property taxes across California, did a U-turn when it passed in a landslide. And Brown himself implemented the tax cuts he had opposed.
He got the message and acted on it.

One sees none of this flexibility in the Beltway establishment, none of this acceptance of the new realities, only obduracy.
Donald Trump is only the messenger.

If these conservative defectors from a ticket led by Trump collude with Democrats, by running a third party candidate to siphon off Trump’s votes, they may succeed.

But they delude themselves if they think they will have solved the problem of their own irrelevance, or that they have a future.

The party will survive. They won’t.


 Just for the record, I would like to add that while Senator Tom Coburn is Conservative on a lot of issues, he is opposed to 2nd amendment rights...
If Conservatives who want to keep their gun rights would bother to check Mr. Coburn's voting record, I don't think he would get much support.

DID HE LIE OR IS HE JUST STUPID?



Here is a little history lesson for President Obama.
You should recall that a few weeks ago, President Obama spoke of three former Presidents making prisoner swaps at the end of wars that took place on their watch, "much like this swap" he said convincingly. 

CNN carried this quote, "This is what happens at the end of wars."  President Barack Obama boasted Tuesday when he was asked about swapping American Army Sgt. Deserter for five vicious Taliban terrorists.  "That was true for George Washington, that was true for Abraham Lincoln, and that was true for FDR.  That's been true of every combat situation, that at some point, you make sure that you try to get your folks back...and that's the right thing to do."

Really?

That statement blatantly demonstrates that the most powerful man in the World, and two term President of the United States, lacks even a grade school level of knowledge of American History; specifically, history as it relates to three of our most famous presidents. It demonstrates again that we have essentially elected a foreigner who has no understanding of the very country that he reigns supreme over. Then again, he was educated at an IVY League school so you can't expect too much!!

What's wrong with his statements?  Let's keep it simple-- EVERYTHING is wrong!  ?
1. George Washington did not become president until six years after the Revolutionary War ended in 1783. By 1789 there were no longer any prisoners for him to exchange.  ?   ?
2.  Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in mid-April of 1865.The Civil War ended the following month. He was still dead at that time. No deals were made to exchange prisoners after the war. All prisoners were simply freed.
3.  FDR died of a stroke before the end of WWII. Like Lincoln, he stayed dead after the war so he couldn't do what this jerk says he did. You'll recall that Harry S. Truman made the decision to drop two nuclear bombs on Japan, ending World War II.  He made no deals for prisoners.  We went in and released them when necessary.
4.  None of the Presidents that Obama noted were in office at the ends of those wars, making it impossible for them to make any sort of prisoner swaps, let alone the 5 for 1, plus unspecified cash, for a deserter and traitor by our "57 States" president.
5.  It should be pointed out that countless deserters and traitors were shot or hung during all three of the aforementioned wars.  What amazes one even more than the ignorance of the President is that he has managed to surround himself with a staff that is just as clueless or willing, as the media are, to cover for his dumb, lying rhetoric and behavior!

P.S. Obama mentioned while being interviewed on Super Bowl Sunday while in the White House kitchen, that George Washington drank beer in the White House when he was president.

George Washington never lived in the White House; it wasn't built yet.     








If a person is not smart enough to fact check his material before making a speech, is he smart enough to be President?
JUST ASKING…

THE TRUTH ABOUT SLAVERY; Nearly 14 Million Black People are Still Enslaved



The REAL Racism: Nearly 14 Million Blacks Still Enslaved, But Not By Whites

I cannot understand why so many Black Americans are becoming Muslims.  One would think that American Black people would be the most anti-Muslim people on the planet.   It was Muslims who were responsible for the slavery of their ancestors.
Slavery did not originate in the South, if fact, it did not originate anywhere in America.

Slavery had been going on for thousands of years before it reached America.
If there had been no slaves to buy, there would not have been any slaves in the South.

So why not condemn the Islamic flag more so than the Confederate Flag since it is more related to the source of supply of slaves.  Where there is no supply there is NO demand. 

While Muslim propagandists have exploited the legacy of slavery in the United States to win black converts, slavery in the Muslim world began long before the United States and ended a century later.

President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1862. By contrast, Saudi Arabia only abolished slavery in 1962. That same year Yemen abolished slavery and the United Arab Emirates abolished slavery a year later.

Saudi Arabia’s ruling family did not embark on this course out of the goodness of their hearts, but under pressure from President Kennedy, at a time when the House of Saud did not yet have the United States economy and its foreign policy in a headlock. The abolition of slavery was a compromise. Kennedy had wanted representative government and civil rights. He had to settle for a belated emancipation.

Slavery has been officially abolished; unofficially it lingers on. There is still a silent unofficial slave trade that is carried on and leading Saudi clerics have insisted that slavery is a part of Islam. Saudis living abroad are often discovered to have domestic workers who live like slaves leading to criminal cases.

The situation is worst in North Africa where Arab colonization largely displaced and suppressed the indigenous peoples, like the Nubians in Egypt. Ethnically cleansed to make way for the Lake Nasser project, Egyptian Nubians have, like so many other North African indigenous peoples, been reduced to a persecuted minority within their own land.



Much attention and condemnation has been directed towards the tragedy of the African slave trade, which took place between the 16 th and the 19 th centuries. However, another equally despicable trade in humans was taking place around the same time in the Mediterranean.  It is estimated that up to 1.25 million Europeans were enslaved by the so-called Barbary corsairs, and their lives were just as pitiful as their African counterparts. They have come to be known as the white slaves of Barbary

Slavery is one of the oldest trades known to man. We can first find records of the slave trade dating back to The Code of Hammurabi in Babylon in the 18th century BCE
People from virtually every major culture, civilization, and religious background have made slaves of their own and enslaved other peoples. However, comparatively little attention has been given to the prolific slave trade that was carried out by pirates, or corsairs, along the Barbary coast (as it was called by Europeans at the time), in what is now Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya, beginning around 1600 AD. 

Anyone traveling in the Mediterranean at the time faced the real prospect of being captured by the Corsairs and taken to Barbary Coast cities and being sold as slaves.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT THE GOP CONVENTION?



The elite of BOTH parties are doing every thing in their power to prevent Trump from becoming President.  The GOP elite would prefer either Hillary or Sanders over Trump.  The Democrat elite would prefer pretty much ANY Republican over Trump.  Why is that?

The reason has become quite obvious.  Trump is the only one they will have no control over.  The only control there will be over a President Trump would be the Constitution of the United States.  If  Trump is elected, he will threaten the cozy relationships, high priced contracts and insider deals of the Beltway power brokers.

He does not need their money and, if elected, will assume the office of President owing no one.   They won’t be able to sway him with bribes, and for the first time in modern history, the President can truly act for the American people instead of the special interests.  I honestly don’t know when was the last time the American people have had a truly independent President.

Among current Trump opponents, Ohio Governor John Kasich is remaining in the race to position himself as the establishment alternative if the convention is brokered.  Republican delegates are required to support their candidate on the first ballot, but may switch support on a second ballot.   It is on the second ballot where the GOP puppet-masters plan to put the screws to “we the people”.

In the end, the race will likely come down to only two choices, Trump or Cruz.   Even though the GOP elites do not like Cruz, they are starting to see him as a better alternative than a wild card like Donald Trump.   Although Cruz may do well with party leaders, he has not been able to match Trump’s success at the ballot box.  

Trump is attracting many more voters in the GOP primaries and caucuses than any other candidate.   Florida Governor Rick Scott recently said, “Donald Trump is the will of the people.  We need to listen to the people, back his candidacy and win in November."

The consultants, experts, analysts, party bosses and purists have not gotten anything right in this year’s Republican Party presidential race.  These critics need to wake up and realize that someone with such broad and loyal support deserves the nomination and has a real chance to be elected President.  Unfortunately, the sad, but disturbing, truth is that many in the Republican Party leadership would much prefer a Democrat they can bribe over a Republican they cannot.

Here's a little additional information.

A contested convention happens automatically if nobody has the requisite number of delegates – 1,237 – to be the nominee.  If nobody gets a majority of the delegates after the first ballot, many of the delegates who were previously bound to the candidate their state voted for would then become free agents, able to support whoever they choose.  Different states have different rules regarding when their delegates become unbound; for Florida and California, for instance, all the delegates are required to vote for the candidate that won their state for 3 ballots.

The GOP nomination could hinge on a small number of Insiders.



If no presidential candidate wins a majority of delegates and Republicans face a contested convention this summer, a small group of party insiders will have huge sway over who wins — and how to resolve a rift that could fracture the Republican Party.
After all the campaigning, debates and primaries, the GOP's presidential nomination could hinge on what these insiders decide. 

The RNC Rules Committee decides party regulations and writes the first draft of convention rules, which are finalized by a convention rules committee and submitted to a floor vote. 

Those rules are crucial. They decide which candidates are on the ballot: They could pass a rule allowing only Donald Trump to run in Cleveland, or a rule enabling new candidates to challenge him. They can decide how delegates vote — and when delegates can switch teams to support rival candidates. These are the kind of restrictions that could make the difference between a coronation or chaos in Cleveland

U.S. Rescue Team Was on Its Way to Benghazi, But Was Turned Back



There is more evidence coming out against Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama by the day.
Col. Andrew Woods has come forward with information that further indicates that help was ready and actually in route to Benghazi, but was forced to turn back because Barack Obama would not give the go-ahead order.

The evidence is overwhelming that the United States had several rescue teams ready to go during the 2012 Benghazi attacks, but someone -- possibly the president himself -- prevented them from acting. So said Emmy Award-winning journalist Sharyl Attkisson to talk show host Steve Malzberg in an interview on Wednesday.


Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration got our guys killed in Benghazi.  If Congress did their job, justice would have been served by now.

This Aint Your Daddy's Democratic Party



Today’s Democratic Party is NOT your Grandparents Democratic Party, it is light-years to the left of the party of President John F. Kennedy, who went eyeball-to-eyeball with maniacal Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev and brought the civilization-threatening Cuban missile crisis to an end.
Kennedy, quite the opposite of Obama, pledged to give Americans “an across-the-board reduction in personal and corporate income tax rates” to “reduce the burden on private income and the deterrents to private initiative.”  After Kennedy was assassinated, the massive tax cuts he promised were enacted, resulting in a boom in both the private economy and federal tax revenues for the rest of the decade.

When Bernie Sanders was asked if he was a socialist, he responded: “Yeah. I wouldn’t deny it.  Not for one second.  I’m a democratic socialist.”    (Hitler was also a democratic socialist)  
 
Yet when asked if he was a Democrat, he said, “Of course I am a Democrat and running for the Democratic nomination.”
Meanwhile, the Communist Party USA claims it champions “socialism” (not communism).  Emblazoned at the top of its website is this bold creed: “A better and peaceful world is possible – a world where people and nature come before profits.  That’s socialism. That’s our vision.  We are the Communist Party USA.”

So let’s sum this up: Sanders, a self-described “democratic socialist,” claims he is indeed a “socialist,” but also claims he’s a “Democrat.” The Communist Party USA advocates “socialism,” saying “socialism [is] our vision,” and likewise boasts of its “unparalleled history in the progressive movement of the United States.” Hillary Clinton, heavily influenced by Chicago Marxist Saul Alinsky, proudly and repeatedly proclaims she’s a “modern progressive.”

So, the bottom line is, “communist,” “socialist,” “Marxist,” “progressive” and “Democrat” have now all come to mean roughly the same thing.

NAZI BROWNSHIRTS INVADE TRUMP RALLY



Brownshirts invade Trump rally



The invective against Donald Trump has recently reached new heights, as his detractors have dusted off the old “Hitler” comparisons and brought them to the fore.  Even Bill Maher jokingly compared The Donald to Hitler in a segment on his show.  Needless to say, such misguided attempts at castigating Trump sickeningly diminish the real atrocities committed by the real Hitler.  These people show how little they know, but in addition, last night they showed their hypocrisy.

In advance of a Trump rally on the University of Illinois-Chicago campus on Friday night, protesters flooded the arena with the express goal of shutting down the event.  Physical altercations are reported to have taken place between the protesters and Trump supporters.  With the safety of his supporters in mind, Trump rightly canceled the event.  When this was announced, the protesters erupted in applause, their mission accomplished – to stifle opposing points of view.

Many of the protesters were heard to have chanted “Bernie!  Bernie!” after the cancelation was announced.  I doubt that Bernie Sanders would openly condone what took place at the arena, but he has condoned – even praised – the totalitarian tactics of the Castro brothers.  Would he call on his supporters to refrain from such actions hostile to the First Amendment?  Scanning social media this evening, I’ve seen some Bernie supporters laudably condemn what occurred, but I’ve seen just as many, if not more, claiming these are Trump’s just deserts.

I have no doubt that the perpetrators of last night’s lawlessness applaudingly condoned the likening of Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler, all the while engaging in real actions straight out of the playbook of the Sturmabteilung – the infamous “Brownshirts.”  Mechanically enforcing the will of the Nazi Party, the Brownshirts disrupted meetings of opposing parties, employing force and violence to make their mark and discourage dissent. This is precisely what these thugs did last night, abandoning the law and civil discourse to perversely embrace the tactics of a man and a party they witlessly accuse Trump and the Republican party of embodying.

This, though, is a hallmark of statists – they accuse their opponents of doing what they themselves do.  They make the comparison to Hitler without a sense of irony, carelessly analogizing Trump’s proposal to temporary ban the entry of Muslims to the United States to Hitler’s Final Solution.  They call Trump a fascist and shamelessly employ fascist tactics against him and his supporters.

Regardless of what one thinks about Donald Trump, he has a right to speak, and his supporters have a right to peaceably assemble.  Those rights are enshrined in the First Amendment to our Constitution.  Our nation cherishes that right and has historically celebrated the ability of opponents on an issue to speak their minds and debate.  However, it’s a right statists on college campuses embrace when it’s their message they want to shout from the rooftops but condemn when faced with differing viewpoints.  The selective application of freedom of speech is no freedom at all.

The left paint themselves as eminently tolerant of others, but that fa├žade crumbles when put to the test.  Just look at the excoriation of Caitlyn Jenner by the left when the transgendered reality star made supportive statements about Ted Cruz.  Last night was not at all different.  Trump comes to Chicago, where he has many supporters, but his leftist detractors rule the day through intimidation, violence, and anarchy.  The mob ruled last night, giving the civil political process our nation has long enjoyed a miss.

The Chicago Police did an admirable job of keeping a bad situation from going worse, but I fear that this lot of students cum Brownshirts will only embolden others.  Given the circumstances, I believe that Trump did the right thing to cancel the rally, but he has sent a message: you can silence me by adopting such tactics.  For statists, this could serve as an open invitation to storm rallies across the country, inciting violence and usurping the rule of law.

Just as Trump and his supporters have the right to assemble and speak, his opponents likewise have the right to peaceably protest.  They do not have the right to overrun Trump’s rallies, nor to silence opposition.  This is an important point.  The rights we enjoy in this nation are not enjoyed the world over.  We have the opportunity to speak and debate and engage in the free flow of ideas.  This is the very foundation of the civil society.  The first step toward tyranny is to remove that ability.

This ideology says, “If I don’t like what you have to say, it’s perfectly justifiable to shut you down.”  Of what else is such an ideology capable?  History gives us the answer, and it’s deeply troubling.  To be sure, it’s a long road from point A to point Z, but for those to whom the end justifies the means, it’s a smooth, straight road.
