      Thanks, Bigly! Victor Davis Hanson may be the best example of the importance of a historical perspective to the understanding of the contemporary culture. He is the embodiment of why History is the most important aspect of getting an education. I don’t understand so called Progressive politics and VDH helps me to at least have a plausible understanding each time I read what he says or listen to what he says. I just wish he wasn’t so isolated among the so called elite historians of our times. I once advised Mittens to read “The Road to Serfdom” and I hope that PDJT includes Hanson’s perspectives as he tries to sort out the machinations of the swamp in the contemporary world.

    Raging Black Trans Woman Crashes Question, Steals Mic at CNN Town Hall

    The already bonkers LGBT town hall went wild Thursday night when a black trans woman named Blossom C. Brown rushed a questioner from the audience, stole the mic, accused CNN of erasing black trans women, demanded people “Google” her, and almost climbed on stage.

    Moderator Don Lemon was in the middle of conducting the town hall for former Congressman and 2020 long-shot candidate Robert O’Rourke (D-TX) when he wanted to take a question from Lizette Trujillo, a mother with a young transgender son.

    Madness of Crowds – trump is fighting crowds at every turn. This guy nails it, point after point. He explains what it is that trump and we, are up against.

    Crowds stampede and take out true opinions: sex, gender, race – we have become incapable of having discussions because the crowd comes right at them. Trump goes after these movements, these weaponized crowds, important we understand how these crowds work.

      It’s important to understand that these “crowds” are actually attacking our Constitution. They have run roughshod over the peaceful transition of power. And to facilitate a treasonous coup, they removed our Constitutional right to protect us from unreasonable search and seizure, via the so-called Patriot Act.

      Now, they are coming after freedom of speech and expression, and our right to *peaceable* assembly through censorship and, in some cases, labeling speech a criminal offense (looking at you DiBlasio). This, while *they* are free to call American patriots every name in the book and deny us due process.

      They intentionally disrupt “peaceful” rallies by aiding and abetting violent thugs.

      And they create intolerable situations and violent attacks in an attempt to intimidate Americans to give up our Constitutional right to bear arms against tyranny.. God forbid!

      Guard that Constitution, folks! Guard it with your life! Their New World Order obviously has NO place for our Constitutional Republic and they will give us NO quarter.

      Well, I guess a signed and duly executed affidavit by the man his father got fired from his job is not sustainable evidence.

        The issue is deceptive.
        Hunter Biden did not break any laws.
        The owner of Burisma was being investigated by Ukraine
        Burisma Hired Hunter Biden; then Joe Biden used his political position and acting as an agent of the US government demanded that Ukraine fire its’ equivalent to the AG.

        Hunter just took a job– but Joe is the one who actually abused his position as VP of the United States basically selling his position in the US government for family money.

        If the media successfully controls this narrative and makes this all about Hunter Biden–then- when it is determined that Hunter did not violate any laws when he basically accepted a job– the media and government will declare victory, move on and claim that the Biden situation is resolved.

          don’t be so fast with the meme that hunter’s participation was legal…. There are conspiracy and fraud laws in the US and other countries. Did he really think that his “expertise” was “worth” $150,000 per month, and a $billion+ from china?

          But whateer, I want one of them there “director jobs” for $150,000 per month. I’m not addicted to cocaine, and have more “experience” than “hunter”. Where do I apply to get aboard Air Force 2, to get one of these jobs? I’ll do it for only $25,000 per month, and will actually show up and work hard. But I won’t be able to get international “aid” payments to other countries, part of which is paid back to our congresscritters and deep state, because I’m not a member of “the club”.

          At least we now know one mechanism for congresscritters and crooked pols to get rich on their salaries.
          1. Give US Taxpayer money to foreign countries
          2. The foreign countries secretly give money back to congresscritter families and crooked pols.
          3. If anyone tries to investigate, get them fired, prosecuted, or impeached.

          Maybe if I changed my last name to biden, clinton, pelosi, feinstein, schiff? Gave money to the clinton foundation?

          In the USA, too many lawyers clog the wheels of Justice, Law & Order; Slow down the Court System; and use their coded ‘lawyer-speak’ to disguise true motives and the truth. This is exactly what anti-Trumpers continue to employ against President Trump.

      Obama’s real job (and probably Romney’s) was to pave the way for Hillary. That’s why he made her SOS, since the public didn’t think she had enough experience to be President. Then she used her position to bring in millions, perhaps billions of dollars, because she knew she could get away with it, which she has. It’s only by the grace of God that Donald Trump is our President today. Imagine what life would be if Clinton had been elected. We’d probably already be in concentration camps.

        They are just the flavor of the month.

        Been going on for 60 plus years. Take a stable,
        largely self sufficient, thriving area. Find out that
        area is contrary to what the ruling class wants.

        Does ruling class change their behavior to meet
        what such area expect? NO.

        They destroy them. Weaken them, implode them
        by nefarious means. Always claiming fairness, justice,
        equality. In the 60s, it was thriving cities. Destroy
        their schools and neighborhoods by building monstrosities
        like Cabrini Green. And, the middle class moves.
        By design. Most importantly the only middle class that
        doesn’t vote democrat moves. White Republicans.

        In the 70s, it was thriving adjacent suburbs. In tons
        of areas rental housing became section 8, Low Income
        Housing Tax Credits. Where the areas were overbuilt
        “desegregation suits” were filed, and low income kids
        were bussed into previously high performing schools.

        A few years ago I started reading about all the car fires
        and violence in the Paris suburbs. Brought to you by
        the refugee population. All that I could think of was this.

        The big boys are up to it again. It’s of utmost importance
        to them that the populations they INFLICT on a given area
        are as dissimilar as possible to what is already there.
        Different standards of behavior ( generally worse) different
        family composition ( no dads in the US model. Fast track
        to crime and failure).

        For all these plans to succeed ( as measured by the ruling
        class) it’s imperative that the populations inflicted on a
        given area have nothing in common with what was already
        there. That way if anyone dare raise a protest, they are
        portrayed as the bad guys.

The kurds are NOT the peaceful Yazidis stuck in their faith in a region that doesn’t respect their ancestral rights either, though they rescued them from ISIS. Without the financial backing of the US the Kurds who seek a country of their own would have had to broker peace in their region. Eventually they will broker a peace. It may not be the one we preferred but we were not getting it anyway.

      45 thinks you take out terrorism through economics for a few years while letting the other NATO partners own up to the ‘right cause’ on their own. No longer is NATO to be democratic participating. You bring your country to the fight regardless of the US position.

      The US Senate GOP who only sees the romanticized fighter in the Kurds may not give 45 the chance to let the peace brokerage begin.

      And these idiots who say he’s emboldened the Turkish dictator fail to say he has never said anything about financing the Muslim Brotherhood.

      It’s silly to arm the Kurds if you are supposedly in a NATO partnership with Turkey with ISIS defeated. It’s silly for the Kurds to take our arms without us first Declaring we support their Kurdish state. Our nation has NEVER done this.

    The worst thing for the swamp are good things happening for the American people. They’ve worked tirelessly to kill off the American spirit and subsequently kill you and I. In order to implement the NWO the Constitution and the Bill of Rights must be destroyed. The very thing these creeps have sworn to protect against enemies foreign and domestic.

    We have allowed the permanent bureaucracy class, civil servants to usurp the rights of every free American. To move our country into a totalitarian hellhole where our every thought or action is controlled “by the man”. The very thing these counter culturist hacks used to profess as the enemy, they have now become. Another case of liberal projection.

    The awesome news is, just like the two races in North Carolina, the race in Louisiana for Governor, the massive crowd at Target Center in MN we in truth are winning this fight and the cabal knows it and is lashing out. President Trump and his Deplorable Army are going to crush them in 2020 and they know it, you can feel it, you can see it. Even with massive cheating in the Blue Hives.

    Be cool, hang tough, be prepared. Just like any criminal enterprise they have nothing to lose, at least they think they don’t so. The history books are replete with countries whose “rulers” wound up with their heads on pikes at the front gate, metaphorically of course.

    If we stick together they cannot win and they know it. They’ve set up a clash between the free productive classes and the entitled bum classes I wonder who will win in the long run. Do not fail, do not flag, we have a Republic to save and we’ve just begun to fight.

      Stan – The last 5 words of your post are the most important thing you said. Too many people, even here at CTH, think this war will be won quickly. This is just the beginning. They will not give up easily or quickly. This will take many, many years of constant effort to win. And then there must be constant vigilance to keep it from happening again. People who think this can be won in 5 or 10 years are being foolish. This is not just about the American people, but it’s about freedom worldwide. If America falls the entire world follows. But we only win by a constant effort and raising our children and grandchildren to take up the mantle after us to continue on. Anything less will spell failure.

    • Think of it … international human trafficking brought these people in some cases over the seas from Africa (on slave ships), and now expects them to walk to America.

      This is a crime against humanity that has profitably existed for many dozens of years. This is not merely(!) about “a wall.” This is the reason why our laws need to be changed – and, unfortunately, it is also the reason why corrupt lawmakers won’t do it. We are defiant of our own 13th Amendment, willingly receiving both indentured servants and slaves.

          Yeah, let’s vote out every Republican and let Democrats replace them. That will surely help the country! /s

          First, you create a recruitment system to find and train good Republicans to run for office.

          Second, you don’t waste good talent and money trying to primary bad Republicans. That never works. A lot of patience is needed. This will be a long struggle.

          Third, you spend your resources in the battlegrounds. A Republican retires, fight for the district. A Democrat beats a Republican, fight to take that district back. A Democrat retires, fight to win that district if feasible. And fight for special elections.

          Fourth, find more ways to nationalize Congressional Races ala Newt Newt Gingrich and his corruption fighting Contract. This upcoming election has many possibilities that don’t have to take second seat to the presidential election. Indeed, a referendum on Democrat abuse of power in the House would fit well in a ‘They are trying to impeach me to stop all the good that I am doing for you’ campaign.

          Fifth, staying home can never help your cause. Commit yourself to participate in every primary and election.

  30. Let’s cut to the chase here and point out that we’re not battling just “the swamp,” but organized crime which has been committed by and through Washington, DC for many decades. Joe Biden’s boastful comments (including “call him …”) were simply considered uninteresting and normal. But the actual litany of international crimes would come straight from The Godfather:

    • Extortion
    * Racketeering
    • Money Laundering
    • Influence Peddling
    • Embezzlement

Applying pressure on Ukraine to investigate whether a past vice president of the United States engaged in a corrupt bargain that that would potentially have been an impeachable offense is the constitutional duty of anyone who has sworn to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States.”

      We have a treaty with Ukraine pledging mutual cooperation in law enforcement, particularly in matters of corruption, and the Ukranians elected a President of their own on a “drain the swamp” ticket. The Ukranians know first-hand where the skeletons are buried since they’ve been stuck on the receiving end of literally decades of American corruption. Trump and Barr and others want to get to the bottom of it too, and that’s what’s got them all scared shitless and suddenly screaming “impeach.” They know their own crimes are about to be exposed, and this time there’s no one available to give the Ukranians six hours.

      So they go with this phase 1 idea which exploits trumps demands and gives farmers a 250% increase in exports. He publicly celebrates this point over and over, making it very difficult for China to reverse their pledge.

    Some speculations about the coming week, after spending this morning reflecting on the events of the past week.

    House returns from recess meaning someone from Freedom Caucus will read the ‘Schiff hidden’ special envoy Volker testimony into the record on the floor. That keeps Sondland honest and prevents the WaPo spin that has already started.

    Mulvaney and Perry will defy their Oct 15 deadline ‘subpoena letters’, daring Dems to try to get judicial enforcement and thus starting the nullification process Dems cannot avoid without voting for a formal impeachment investigation by the Judiciary committee only. Unavoidable Schiff quandary.

    Dallas rally Thursday will be another barn burner like Minneapolis. PDJT will start introducing some retiring Texas RINO replacement candidates.

    FISA abuse report drops. Better than even odds some Durham indictments are simultaneously unsealed based on Nunes and IG prior criminal referrals (at least Comey and Yates), after passing on last IG Comey criminal referral. Barr directed executive summary will be brutal rather than a whitewash.
