President Trump Is Our American Winston Churchill (Opinion)

The leader the country needed…

Published

Winston Churchill stands out as the most extraordinary politician of the 20th century. The Second World War was the catalyst for his success. Without it, Churchill probably would have faded into oblivion. In the 1930s, Churchill was vilified by the British political establishment when he warned about the threat posed by Nazi Germany. They thought he was nuts. Until 1940, that is. It turned out that not only was he right about Hitler, he was uniquely qualified to inspire, cajole, and lead the British people plus nurture the critical Anglo-American alliance. What would we have done without him?

The contemporary American version of Churchill is Donald J. Trump and the catalyst for his success was Barack Obama. Without Obama, Trump would still be negotiating hotel deals in New York City. Obama’s unabashed hatred of the United States manifested itself in a total rejection of American values: he wanted to sacrifice individual rights on the altar of governmental power, restrict free speech, replace meritocracy with identity politics, and suspend due process and the rule of law. Obama’s eight-year war on our treasured values produced an unexpected result—Donald Trump.

Trump has done a lot in three years, but his most important contribution has been the reversal of Obama’s legion of subversive regulations. Obama was stifling American business initiative and annulling our personal freedoms by the boat load. The Donald was the right man to change all that. Victor Davis Hanson explains the Trump dynamic in The Case for Trump. Trump, says Hanson, is the classic “tragic figure,” e.g., Achilles in The Iliad, General George Patton, the Gary Cooper character in High Noon, and the John Wayne character in The Searchers. Each of them is a dangerous, unlikeable loner who solves a critical problem in a way that no one else can, often by violence. Once the job is done, society can no longer tolerate him. General Patton was the right man during the war, but afterward there was no place for him. Churchill fits the pattern. He was the right man to lead England to victory but was repudiated by the voters once the war was over. Trump the outsider has many unpleasant traits but he is the only one who can deal effectively with the excesses of the Deep State and the mess left by eight years of Obama. After 2024, we can put him out to pasture, but for now Trump is the man of the hour.

As with Churchill, most of the anti-Trump criticism is personal. Churchill was attacked because he drank too much. Trump is attacked because he is brash. He tends to be too candid about his views. He tweets too much. He reacts personally to attacks. He has a bad haircut. Aside from the haircut, I like them all. What I care about in the 2020 election is what Trump has set out to accomplish:

1. Positive economic growth, security policies that protect the homeland, and sensible fiscal management.
2. Safeguarding the republic from an assault on the Bill of Rights.

Bernie Sanders and his Democratic Party colleagues would move us in the direction of totalitarianism. They want to finish what Obama started. Sanders wants to substitute Trump’s successful policies with runaway expansion of the federal government, open borders, the replacement of free speech with political correctness, and a menu of extravagant giveaways that he has no earthly idea how to pay for. Bernie’s love affair with socialism will turn the nation into Venezuela. We will be eating out of the garbage and wiping our butts with the New York Times. In other words, the Democrats are a guarantee of disaster.

Whenever you have big government, you have a corresponding decrease in personal freedom. Under a Bernie Sanders presidency, freedom of speech will be one step away from annihilation. He will appoint to the Supreme Court a series of “progressive” justices who can be counted on to ratify the Democratic Party’s assault on the First Amendment. As Bernie taxes us out of existence, he will prohibit hate speech. Once freedom of speech goes, that is the end. We may never get it back. Without freedom of speech, we have no rights, no liberties, no freedoms. The pattern is already being established in Europe thanks to the European Union’s assault on free speech. We can’t allow it to happen here. George Orwell’s prediction in his novel, 1984, will have been realized—Big Brother will tell us what to think.

But just as British voters had the brains to see beyond Neville Chamberlain, let’s hope that American voters will have the brains to see through Bernie Sanders. We should be grateful that we have our own home-grown Churchill. Let’s allow Mr. Trump to do what he came for.

AG Barr Tackles Far-Left Extremism; Says Media Is Censoring What’s Going On And Americans Are Being Lied To

Published

on

Attorney General William Barr is one of those people that President Trump has surrounded himself with that is much like him in very important ways that are desperately needed in the current political climate. Barr is a man unafraid to speak the truth. He’s not easily intimidate by the leftist media and he’s always ready and willing to call them out for their nonsense, which is precisely what he’s done concerning the topic of how the media has covered radical left-wing extremism. The attorney general conducted an interview with Fox News host Mark Levin on Sunday and stated the mainstream media is lying to the public about the extent of far-left violence exploding in streets across the country. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “We have the citizen reporters, who have these videos of these events, which are quite different than what we get a lot of times from the media, which seems to be censoring the violence,” Levin said to Barr. “No?” “Absolutely. Their narrative – they are projecting a narrative,” Barr said. “When the word narrative came into currency, I knew we were in trouble, because the word narrative really suggests that there’s no objective truth. There’s no real story of what happened, it’s just everyone has their own narrative.” “And you get to then – the press can justify presenting a story that doesn’t really correspond to objective truth, but it’s our narrative. We have a narrative, you have a narrative,” Barr continued. “I’ve been appalled at — on this violence, because it’s happening right out in the streets, anyone with eyes can see what’s happening. They see the violence.” “They see these groups of agitators in their black outfits and their helmets and their shields, which incidentally have the hammer and sickle on them most of…

Massive Rioting And Looting Rocks Chicago After Police-Involved Shooting

Published

on

Will this nonsense ever just end? How much more violence, rioting, and looting can this country handle before it shatters and folks get super tribal? We’re all ready divided, yet it doesn’t seem this stuff is going to be quelled any time soon. There are now videos circulating online that show widespread rioting, looting, and other forms of violence erupting all throughout the city of Chicago in light of a police-involved shooting that left a young man wounded. Social media users on various platforms posted up videos of people in the city looting Walgreens, Macy’s, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, among many other stores. There was even an exchange of gunfire between looters and police at some point during the evening. No officers were harmed. Check out the details from Fox News: “Absolute chaos in downtown Chicago with more overnight looting and vandalism in the Loop,” tweeted Ryan Baker, an anchor for WBBM-TV. “Appears to be coordinated effort with minimal police presence.” https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1292753400388415489 The Chicago Police Department did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News. The unrest began Sunday afternoon, after police responded to a report of a man with a gun in the city’s Englewood neighborhood. While pursuing that individual on foot, he “turned and fired shots” at officers before being struck himself and taken to a local hospital, Deputy Chief Delonda Tally told Fox 32 Chicago. A crowd that had gathered at the scene then faced off against police and started hurling objects at officers after getting agitated over a false rumor that the suspect – who is in his late teens or early 20s – was a child, investigators add. https://twitter.com/TomAhernCPD/status/1292592711271362566 As of this writing, the condition of the individual who was shot is not known. Chicago’s Civilian Office of Police Accountability has officially launched an investigation…
