Most people under the age of 30 do not remember just how good life can be in America, what it means to live through a sustained era of both peace and prosperity. My hope and prayer for 2018 are that at long last, they get this chance. The signs, at least some of them, point to this being a very real possibility.
After World War II, life in America was pretty sweet. Not perfect, but perfect enough. After two decades of Depression and war, we came out of it with an economy on fire, and our beloved country became the envy of the world.
This all changed, of course, with the assassination of an American president on November 22, 1963. The 18 years that followed were filled with the Vietnam War, social upheaval, race riots, more assassinations, Watergate, an energy crisis, Soviet expansion, Iranian hostages, and Jimmy Carter’s economic and spiritual malaise.
The election of Ronald Reagan, in 1981, returned us to an era of peace and prosperity, one that would last 20 years, straight through to September 11, 2001.
Unfortunately, on that terrible September morning, we were at war again, including a pre-emptive war based on disastrously bad intelligence. Peace and prosperity went up in flames due to another bitter, divisive, and costly effort in nation building that, to this day, seems to have no end.
Among other travesties, Obama handed the Middle East to Russia and ISIS, stifled an economy that should have come roaring out of that recession, codified a repression of Christianity unseen since our founding, and with malicious intent (and the help of a boot-licking media) cynically fabricated racial, religious, and cultural divisions, based almost exclusively on hyper-politicized lies (Trayvon Martin; Benghazi; You Can Keep Your Insurance; Hands Up, Don’t Shoot). Obama could have made America great again. He, instead, chose the dark side.
This is not to say that the good times were all good, were only about chocolate rivers and peppermint trees. There was the Cold War, Korea, Sputnik, AIDS, Iran Contra, the unforgivable attacks on Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas, Rodney King and the Los Angeles riots, O.J. Simpson, impeachment, Columbine, Oklahoma City… Stressful times, but stressful times that passed.

President Donald Trump predicted that 2018 will be a “fantastic” year, and Michelle Malkin wants to see his administration make constructing a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border a top priority.
Malkin, a political commentator and CRTV host, said on “Fox & Friends” on Monday that Trump is aware of the obstacles he will face from Congress and the establishment in both parties as he looks to enact his agenda in 2018.
She pointed out that there is now a strong push in Congress for a fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which provides a level of amnesty to certain undocumented immigrants, many of whom came to the U.S. as children. Read more at insider.foxnews.com.
Environmental Protection Agency officials are “leaving in droves”, reports the New York Times.
by James Delingpole
More than 700 people have left the Environmental Protection Agency since President Trump took office [bold type, mine],a wave of departures that puts the administration nearly a quarter of the way toward its goal of shrinking the agency to levels last seen during the Reagan administration.
What marvellous news to ease us all into the festive Christmas spirit, eh readers?
Why, it’s like the final scene in A Christmas Carol where Scrooge repents of all his miserliness, his nephew Fred gets a big fat turkey, Bob Cratchit gets a pay rise and Tiny Tim declares “God bless us, every one!”
Not, of course, that this is quite the way the New York Times sees it. It wants us to believe that this is an attack on both science and the environment.
Within the agency, science in particular is taking a hard hit. More than 27 percent of those who left this year were scientists, including 34 biologists and microbiologists; 19 chemists; 81 environmental engineers and environmental scientists; and more than a dozen toxicologists, life scientists and geologists. Employees say the exodus has left the agency depleted of decades of knowledge about protecting the nation’s air and water. Many also said they saw the departures as part of a more worrisome trend of muting government scientists, cutting research budgets and making it more difficult for academic scientists to serve on advisory boards.
Actually, though, what it really is is #winning.
EPA administrator Scott Pruitt is achieving what President Trump appointed him to do. He is draining the swamp. Continue reading at breitbart.com.
In the midst of much hand-wringing and anguished sighs, the Huffington Post has announced to its readers that after his first year in office “Trump Is Winning.”
“This is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to write and admit,” begins Earl Ofari Hutchinson, “Trump is winning.”
Hutchinson, an author and co-host of the Al Sharpton Show, observes that according to numerous indicators the Trump presidency is a success, beginning with his delivery of a long list of campaign promises.
Among Mr. Trump’s many victories, Hutchinson enumerates Mick Mulvaney’s appointment to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Neil Gorsuch’s contribution to the Supreme Court, Scott Pruitt’s work at the EPA, Trump’s support of fossil fuels to make America energy independent, the RNC backing of judge Roy Moore in Alabama, the fizzling out of Russiagate, the passage of the tax reform bill, and the record-level stock market.
Yet all of these wins are small potatoes compared to Trump’s three top victories, Hutchinson claims.
First, the President has successfully taken charge of the Republican Party. “He is the point man for GOP policy and issues and, in a perverse way, the spur to get action on them,” Hutchinson notes.
Second, Mr. Trump has managed to energize his base and keep their loyalty. The “overwhelming majority” of Republican voters continues to back him, Hutchinson admits. “This is the voter loyalty that buys a lot of support from the GOP establishment even as they flail him or shake their head in disgust at his antics,” he writes.
Third, Trump has successfully harnessed the mainstream media for his own purposes. “He remains a ratings cash cow for the networks and makes stunning copy for the print media,” Hutchinson complains. “He knew that from day one of his presidential bid and he knows it even more now. He will continue to suck the media air out of everything that the Democrats do and try to do.”
While praising the war on Trump waged by the New York Times and “other liberal print publications,” Hutchinson recognizes that for much of the Trump base these papers have lost all credibility. “So the withering criticism of Trump in these publications is tantamount to a wolf howling in the wind,” he says.

President Trump held a Make America Great Again rally tonight in Pensacola. Yes, he spoke about his support for Judge Roy Moore in next Tuesday’s Alabama U.S. Senate race, but the bulk of his speech dealt with his first year (almost) in office and his vision for the future.
So please don’t rely on LameStream radio and TV snippets, or the fish wrapper print media, and take the time to watch our president’s speech when you can. I don’t think you will be disappointed. Thanks.
On Sunday’s edition of Fox and Friends, conservative firebrand, author, activist and Fox News contributor, Michelle Malkin, demolished the radical left’s open borders and sanctuary policies, and blasted the verdict in the trial of the illegal alien accused of killing Kate Steinle. Video and transcript below:
Rachel Campos Duffy: This is why he does not give up his Twitter feed. They tell him to put it away and he doesn’t because this is the kind of power he has maybe we’ll get some lessons.
Pete Hegseth: We’ll bring in that Michelle Malkin now, host of Michelle Malkin Investigates on CRTV.
So Michelle, I mean there’s been a lot of criticism, and rightfully so of fake news coming from Brian Ross, about the implications of the bombshell report they’re caught with collusion. President’s saying “Hey, those actions have consequences. The market went down 350 points, maybe they should sue?” What do you think?
Michelle Malkin: I think he’s absolutely right. President Trump is making a very salient point that fake news hits people in the pocketbook. And I think uh, I think he’s half in jest here, but there is a serious point. And if there were people who were going to file a suit, they should file suit not only against the news division of ABC but also the entertainment division because Joy Behar’s singular crowing about this fake news was probably responsible for a huge portion of those losses.
Pete Hegseth: Absolutely well go ahead Ed.
Ed Henry: You know what I wonder also, because we’ve been talking about not just the ramifications of the false report from Brian Ross which ABC is now trying to take responsibility for, but the fact that this breaking overnight that an FBI agent has been pulled from the Mueller probe, because of these texts he sent that are anti-Trump and pro-Clinton and it turns out, wait a second: Where was he at the FBI before? He was one of James Comey’s cronies, and sat in for the interview with Hillary Clinton, the interview that you’ll remember two or three months before James Comey was writing the statement exonerating her before the interview.
Michelle Malkin: Yeah. it really stinks, and I’m glad that information is, is coming out, and it’s busting up all of the narrative and again, it is reinforcing president Trump’s point that so much of this fake narrative about Russian conspiracies is deflection. And in fact it maybe even be with psychological projection because there, it seems as though the conspiracies are within the deep state to try and set up Trump and perpetuate all of these lies. I do have to say also about Brian Ross, that over the course of his career, he has been responsible for many journalistic errors and examples of malpractice. And curiously, every single one of these errors always airs on the side of attacking conservatives and undermining Republicans. Why is that? And why are there so many double standards in the way that ABC, or NBC or CBS get away with these acts of malpractice and political agendas time and time again? A 30-day suspension, that’s a joke. You know what I call that? Holiday break.
Rachel Campos Duffy: Well listen Michelle, we know you’ve been following the Kate Steinle case, and the very outrageous verdict there. I know I’ve been talking to so many friends of mine. I live in Middle America. They’re outraged. Tell me if you think that this verdict will actually have an impact on the whole issue of sanctuary cities, because we have a president for the first time who is bringing up the topic of sanctuary cities, and we have this outrageous example in this verdict.
Michelle Malkin: Well Rachel, I do have more hope than I have had in the last 25 years that I’ve covered these issues, that there will be lasting change. But it really has to come from all sides, and it can’t just come from Washington. There needs to be a grassroots revolt within these cities, these so-called sanctuary cities that I call outlaw cities. And the chances that that there will be such a revolt in an open borders mecca like San Francisco, are low. I am really curious about whether jurors are going to speak out, because I want to know what was in their mindset. We know for a fact that the court did not allow in that trial, any information about the deportations. That might have had a huge impact on their thinking about, about the case. And the other thing too, is this is a systemic problem. It’s not just the trial court level where we have issues. It’s the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, it’s all of these liberal federal judges in all of these liberal sanctuary cities, that are granting rights to illegal aliens that American citizens of illegal alien crime do not have.
Pete Hegseth: Is that a fair question to ask? Would a US citizen been given the same set of deferential treatment as was given to a 5-time deported illegal immmigrant?
Michelle Malkin: Oh of course it’s the right question to ask. You know I’ve followed so many cases where families who are the heirs and the survivors of illegal alien crime victims who have died, have tried to go to court to sue, to hold government officials criminally and civilly liable. This happened in Houston when Houston Police Department officer, Rodney Johnson was killed by an illegal alien in that sanctuary city and his widow was denied something called standing. She wasn’t even allowed to bring her civil suit into court. How is this possible? We live in this bizarro land where we’re conferring more legal rights to illegal aliens and foreigners. How is it that these foreigners outside this country are stymieing President Trump from enforcing visas and policies and extreme vetting? Only in America.
Ed Henry: Yeah and you talk about narratives, there’s a narrative out there when every time ICE goes in on a deportation, there are many in the media, not all, but many will say it’s ICE that’s overstepping, that they’re trampling on right somehow. And there’s another narrative by the way, you can weigh in on that, but another narrative in Washington, is we look at what happens in the aftermath of the Steinle verdict, which is that there’s been a narrative that the Republicans have a weak hand going into the end-of-the-year negotiations over DACA for example. And that somehow the Democrats have a strong hand. And they’re going to be able to jam DACA through, codify it by law and there’s nothing the Republicans can do. Does the Steinle case change it at all, where maybe Republicans get a spine and say look, if we’re gonna do DACA, if we’re gonna keep the children of illegals in this country and you’re going to work through that, there also going to be some tough border control?
Michelle Malkin: Yeah well let me talk about noxious open borders narratives. It’s Nancy Pelosi, who a couple years ago was attacking ICE agents and she used the word, quote Un-American, to talk about their commitment to enforcing the rule of law. Unbelievable! I’ll tell you what’s even more unbelievable and this is relevant to your question about the politics in the Beltway. The fact is that we have open borders Republicans, who are doing the bidding of big business, who have an interest in cheap labor and undermining our immigration laws, and they’re the ones who have been colluding with the radical identity politics ideologue of the left. We would not have open borders if it wasn’t for this bipartisan collusion, and if you look at the people who are supporting this DACA move, it’s not just radicals like Luis Gutierrez who is now planning a run for president. It’s also people like his good friend Paul Ryan.
Ed Henry: You know what, we finally finally found collusion.
Michelle Malkin: And there we go, that’s right. We found the conspiracy.
Pete Hegseth: And you know what, your larger point goes with what the president talks about. Either you have a sovereign country with real citizens, with citizens that matters, or it’s all out the window. And that’s what the left is not.
Michelle Malkin: As I say – we’ve turned into a sanctuary nation and we need to take this country back. That’s why President Trump was elected.
Pete Hegseth, Ed Henry: Michelle Malkin, thanks for joining.
Before socialism failed in the Soviet Union, East Germany, and Albania, it flopped in Plymouth Colony.
The Pilgrims encountered, according to the contemporaneous history Mourt’s Relation published in 1622, “the greatest store of fowl that we ever saw,” strawberries, corn, beans, clean water, sassafras, arable if stony soil, and a variety of timber shortly after landing at Plymouth Rock. Yet, after the first Thanksgiving in 1621, Mourt’s Relation notes that the land’s bounty proved “not always so plentiful as it was at this time with us.”
Why did a place offering such a feast threaten a famine? The project’s backers and its leaders contractually agreed for the colonists to “have their meat, drink, apparel, and all provisions out of the common stock and goods.”
William Bradford, governor of Plymouth Colony on and off for about three decades, does not say the “S” word—a term popularized 200 years later by Robert Owen, the architect of another ambitious project, New Harmony. Bradford instead used the phrase “common course.” The separatist from the Church of England writes of that “common course” in the posthumously published Of Plymouth Plantation:
For this community (so far as it was) was found to breed much confusion and discontent and retard much employment that would have been to their benefit and comfort. For the young men, that were the most able and fit for labour and service, did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men’s wives and children without any recompense. The strong, or man of parts, had no more division of victuals and clothes than he that was weak and not able to do a quarter the other could; this was thought injustice. The aged and graver men to be ranked and equalized in labours and victuals, clothes, etc., with the meaner and younger sort, thought it some indignity and disrespect unto them. And for men’s wives to be commanded to do service for other men, as dressing their meat, washing their clothes, etc., they deemed it a kind of slavery, neither could many husbands well brook it.
In the years after that first Thanksgiving feast, the Pilgrims faced famine. They blamed the unnatural economic system foisted upon them by financial backers. As those backers did not fulfill their obligations, the settlers opted out of theirs. Read the rest at breitbart.com.
In an appearance Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Breitbart editor at Large Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and author of “Clinton Cash,” revealed there were audio recordings of Russian officials demonstrating they were willing to use “bribery” to get favors from the former President Bill Clinton and his wife former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
According to Schweizer, that included giving donations to the Clinton Foundation.
He added that had there been this body of evidence compiled on anyone else in an elected office, from President Donald Trump on down, they [would be] under investigation. Continue reading at breitbart.com.

Yay! Be proud, America and relish your splendid isolation! You are, officially, the only nation among the thousands of air-mile-collecting delegates at this year’s U.N. climate conference in Bonn, Germany which hasn’t signed up to the Paris Climate Accord.
You and I might think that this a good thing: America, Land of the Free – the last bastion of common sense, the final redoubt of Western Civilization in a world all but overwhelmed by the green lunacy of the Climate Industrial Complex.
But there are plenty of enemies within still seeking to undermine U.S. independence.
It doesn’t matter that President Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accord, these quislings are now claiming: individual U.S. cities and states can go ahead and decarbonize their economies, for all the world as if it were that crooked uranium saleswoman sitting in the Oval Office instead of the Donald.
