Perfect – Trump Tells Macron: “They were starting to learn German in Paris before the U.S. came along”…

This is what I call representing the red-blooded patriotic American.  Plain-speak, direct truth; what every middle-American would say to in the same or similar circumstance. And ironically, this is also (almost verbatim) one of the reasons Donald Trump earned my support in 2015:

(link)

The blood of Americans, provided the current freedom of France. Period.

Our inherent American DNA strain is liberty and freedom.  Within that core we achieve, drive, and transfer our united national essence into everything we do.  Even the wealth and economics of our nation are dependent on this cornerstone; it drives our entrepreneurial existence.  We know how to do things, create things, and think completely outside the box on new and innovative ideas for things.

Yes, we are exceptional like that.

Reminder:

  • Florida Power and Light won the prestigious International Edward Demming award for excellence in multi-platform engineering and efficiency superiority. They didn’t blow every global PhD business intellectual out of the water with slide rules, CAD programs and engineering acumen. They did it with hard hats and dirty fingernails.

Because they lost the award, the Japanese spent 6 months studying FP&L and later published a 1,000 page dissertation essentially saying FP&L “wasn’t really good, they were just lucky”….. FPL field leadership laughed, took out markers and wrote on the back of their hard hats: WE’RE NOT GOOD, WE’RE RUCKY….

  • When every single Kuwaiti oil field was blown up by Saddam Hussein, they said it would take 5 years to cap them all off and restart their oil pumping industry. The Kuwaiti’s and Saudi’s called Texans, who had them all capped and back in working order in 6 to 10 months.

We are a nation that knows how to get shit done.

  • When the Northern Chile mine workers were trapped two miles underground, they said no-one could save them. Who did they call for help? A bunch of hick miners from USA coal country who went down there, worked on the fly, engineered the rescue equipment on site, and saved everyone of them….

That’s our America.

  • When a half-breed Islamic whack job, armed with an AK-47 and a goal to meet his virgins, began opening fire on a train in France – the Americans on board didn’t run to the nearest safe room and hide themselves amid baguettes and brie. They said “let’s go”, and beat the stuffing out of that little Islamic nut with a death wish.

Legion d’Honneur or not, that’s us.  That’s just how we roll.

Lady Liberty can stroll along the Champs-Elysées with a swagger befitting Mae West because without her arrival they’d be speaking German in the Louvre.  Yet for the better part of the past decade a group of intellectual something-or-others have been teaching an insufferable story-line that it’s better to be sitting around a campfire eating sustainable algae cakes and picking parasites off each other.

Enough.

When I hear Donald Trump say “Let’s Make America Great Again”, I also hear the familiar echo “cowboy up” people.

It’s high time we stop being embarrassed about our exceptional nature, and start being proud of it again.   Because when it matters most, when it really counts, when it’s really needed, there’s a whole bunch of people all around this world of ours that are mighty happy when swagger walks in to solve their problems.

Yeah, “let’s make America great again”.

Swagger on !

          I love this article, it says so much about us, Americans, as a people, as a culture, as a living and breathing set of ideas and principles. And it says just as much about our spectacular President, who is truly one of us. Am watching an old series about Abraham Lincoln, based on Carl Sandburg’s bio of LIncoln, where Lincoln is played by Hal Halbrook. Now I see what Dinesh D’Souza meant — how much Trump resembles Lincoln, and how much the Trump presidency resembles the Lincoln presidency. All I can say is, to paraphrase Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music, to be lucky enough to have Donald Trump as our President, “we must have done something good.”…..

    I am an Electronics engineer in Utah. Several years ago I was working for a small Hi-Tech electronics company and we were purchased by a partially French government-owned electronics company who made similar products. During one of our meetings they showed us one of the circuit boards from one of their modular products. It was covered with jumper wires and tacked on components and typically looked like one of our PC boards in an early prototype stage. We asked why they didn’t just print a new circuit board to get rid of all the messy modifications. They said it takes 6 to 9 months and cost a lot of money to do that. We responded that we could incorporate all the modifications and changes into a new printed circuit card and do it in less than 2 weeks. At this point the head of the French engineering department stood up and called us liars and fools and that it could not be done. So after they left we printed a new circuit board stuffed it with the appropriate components tested it to make sure that ran properly and sent it to them in the mail less than 2 weeks from the time of our meeting. Yay France. In France you can’t even fire a bad employee without permission from the employee union and the government. This is why they are so horribly inefficient.

    • A French friend of mine tells me that their horrible labor laws also aim to prevent an entrepreneur/owner from working OT in his/her own business!

      I’ve said elsewhere that I love France, where I’ve spent a lot of time. Despite their stiff-necked rhetoric, the French do in creating beauty in the arts and on the table. But in politics and the law their innate devotion for didactic argumentation gets them every time. That strain was apparent in the French revolution, the guillotine, and their destruction of the Church for the idea of a “civil religion”. French love to argue but are typically not pragmatic in politics, which is likely why they are working on the Fifth Republic (form of government) since the French Revolution.

      And don’t forget that much of post-modernist theory (Derrida, Claude Levy-Strauss) was birthed in Paris. These travesties were the birth of the garbage political correctness and “intersectionality” that infest our American universities.

      American exceptionalism birthed patriots that sacrificed for Europe to save it TWICE! (and then a third time, arguably, via the Marshall Plan). SD rightly cites some terrific examples of the ingenuity of average citizens. This was key in on-the-ground battles against the Nazis. (The example I recall is our ability to effectively use grenades because Americans are skilled baseball players).

    • The EU army has nothing to do with protecting Europe from outside threats. The purpose of an EU army would be to get troops under the direct control of EU federalists. Currently troops in Europe are under the control of the member states or NATO. EU itself has no troops at the moment, so it can’t send troops to force a reluctant member state to get back in line and let itself to be inundated with the 3rd world invaders.

    Macron is a fool for criticizing Trump for his “dangerous nationalism” that allegedly only looks after the needs of America despite the near annihilation of ISIS and the smothering of most of the civil war in Syria. US Forces worked in tandem at times with Russian forces and the present success has greatly reduced the mass immigration of Syrian and other refugees that were flooding into Europe. Obama the Nobel Prize winning globalist rock star was exceedingly popular with Europeans but his failed red line bluff and other dithering failures allowed ISIS to thrive under his watch.

    Trump, the so called isolationist nationalist. is the only prominent leader promoting the idea that “talking with Putin, Chairman Kim and other non typical leaders” is a good thing, not a bad thing. Did the poseur Macron forget about Trump’s success (so far) with North Korea? Macron appears to be an egghead politician espousing silly theories in a desperate attempt to increase his popularity as Trump noted. But he seems to deliberately ignore the results when it fits his political agenda.

    The French have a knack for being “nationalistic,” unappreciative and duplicitous and history often records it.
    Trump’s tweet about Paris reminded me about the politics that saddled Eisenhower during the War. The link below is worth reading, if anyone is interested in relearning the outrageous facts about the liberation of Paris as it happened and not how the duplicitous French tell it.

    A few decades ago during a joint tour of Europe, some WW II American, British and Canadian vets were outraged when they were shown a short film in the Arc de Triomphe’s Museum that showed the French liberating Paris and De Gaulle being cheered by the French people, There was no mention of any of the allied forces in that film which is typical French behavior.

    Canadians played a part in freeing France (ie Juno Beach D-Day etc) but in July 1967, French President Charles DeGaulle was welcomed by Canadian officials with respect and honor to Montreal, Quebec for a state visit at Expo 67. This was a time when Quebec radical separatists were getting very serious. DeGaulle made a speech from the steps of City Hall on 24 July 1967 proclaiming, “Vive le Québec libre.” (Long live Free Quebec)

    This duplicitous act on Canadian soil energized the Quebec separatist movement for years as they looked toward unity with France and not English Canada. English-Canadian/French relations were at a new low for sometime. His forked tongue visit was cancelled and PM Pearson made a televised speech condemning the speech.

    When I heard what Macron had said about President Trump to the world, I remembered De Gaulle’s speech. Never trust a French leader, they tend to negatively surprise their supposed friends when you least expect it.
