Unhinged Democrat Lawmakers Call For Trump’s Interpreter in Putin Meeting to Testify Before Congress

The Democrats and Obama’s Deep State thugs lost their minds over Trump’s meeting with Putin.
During the presser with President Trump, Russian President Putin dropped a bomb on the Deep State members in the intelligence community, the Obama Administration and the Clintons.
“For instance, we can bring up Mr. Browder, in this particular case.  Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over $1.5 billion in Russia and never paid any taxes neither in Russia or the United States and yet the money escaped the country. They were transferred to the United States. They sent [a] huge amount of money, $400,000 as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton,” Putin said.

It's very simple.........

Putin Summit May Prove to Be Trump's Finest Hour

Via Susan


What?  Did you just read that headline correctly?

Yes, you did.  Writing it I assumed people's heads would explode.  It's about as far as you can can get from today's conventional wisdom (i.e. what David Gergen thinks).  Virtually every member of the smart set from Pelosi to McCain to some ninety-five percent of the media, including several cowards on Fox News, to, alas, Lindsey Graham (who should know better) are going out of their minds excoriating Trump for being soft on Putin, even for being "owned" by the neo-Soviet strongman.

John Brennan -- once a communist himself, so he should know -- accused Trump of treason.

Wall Street Journal’s Confederate Animus: "A conquered people never forget!"


A review of Vicksburg: The Bloody Siege that Turned the Tide of the Civil War by Samuel W. Mitcham, Jr. (Regnery History, 2018).

On the eve of the War for Southern Independence an article was published in The New York Times which unequivocally announced why the North had to invade and conquer the South.  The author of the article declared, “The commercial bearing of the question has acted upon the North….We were divided and confused [about Southern secession] till our pockets were touched.”  The Union Democrat of New Hampshire added this observation, “The Southern Confederacy will not employ our ships or buy our goods….No—we must not ‘let the South go.’”  In an article titled “What Shall Be Done for a Revenue,” the Evening Post of New York warned that without tariff income from Southern ports, “the sources which supply our treasury will be dried up….the railways would be supplied from southern ports.”

These three citations are a small representative sample of the numerous editorials by Northern newspapers warning of the dire consequences to Northern commerce and industry if the South was allowed to establish its independence.  Rather than being the vaunted champion of freedom and equality, it is obvious that the worship of the “Almighty Dollar” was the driving force in the North’s War to Prevent Southern Independence.  Notice how the Evening Post of New York warned that Southern ports would be the recipient of railway commerce.

Incredible 5,500-year-old tomb discovery is 'find of a lifetime'

 A new passage tomb cemetery has been discovered in County Meath, Ireland.

Archaeologists in Ireland have uncovered a megalithic tomb containing two burial chambers, complete with elaborate carvings.

The passage tomb at Brú Na Bóinne, a World Heritage site in County Meath, was excavated by agri-technology Company Devenish and experts from University College Dublin’s School of Archaeology.

Brú na Bóinne, which is described as one of the world’s most important prehistoric landscapes, contains a number of tombs and monuments. The site’s tombs represent the largest assemblage of megalithic art in Western Europe, according to officials.

The German Soldiers of World War II: Why They Were the Best, and Why They Still Lost

Via Ol' Remus 

  Soldiers like these fought with unmatched ability, daring and resourcefulness

The German soldiers of World War II have often been portrayed, both during the war and in the decades since, as simple-minded, unimaginative and brutish. Hollywood movies and popular U.S. television shows have for years contrasted confident, able and “cool” American GIs with slow-witted, cynical and cruel Germans.
“Propaganda is an inescapable ingredient of modern conflict,” British journalist and historian Max Hastings has noted. “In the Second World War, it was considered essential for the struggle to defeat the German army that the peoples of the Grand [Allied] Alliance should be convinced of the qualitative superiority of their fighting men to those of the enemy. One [American] dogface or one [British] tommy was worth three wooden-headed krauts. Hitler’s robots could never match the imagination and initiative of Allied soldiers on the battlefield …” Major wartime American motion pictures portrayed German soldiers as dull-witted and simplistic. In the decades since the war, Hastings notes, “a spirit of military narcissism, nourished by such films as ‘The Longest Day,’ ‘A Bridge Too Far’ and ‘The Battle of the Bulge,’ has perpetuated mythical images of the Allied and German armies.”[1]

The scene presents wounded soldiers at the railroad depot in Atlanta. Scarlett has come looking for the doctor to help with Melanie's delivery and is confronted with the magnitude of the war.

 Francis Porretto at Liberty's Torch on why compromise with the Left is all but impossible:
The Left’s goals and its model of its adversaries make impossible a lasting agreement of any sort with them, even if such an agreement were morally acceptable. Indeed, the more candid ones have said that those of us who can’t be “re-educated” must simply be eliminated – executed. Their goal is absolute an unbounded power in perpetuity: a position that absolutely forbids the toleration of even a single dissident.
They have already sanctioned the use of calumny, harassment, intimidation, vandalism, and personal violence against us. They will not withdraw the use of those tactics as long as they seem to get them closer to what they seek – and therefore, they will take any sort of concession or “compromise” as reinforcement for those tactics.
Really, really, really long time readers of Woodpile Report remember I used to dwell on how Appalachians are demeaned and taunted without consequence. No insult is out of bounds, in the media or casual conversation. And it's been going on for all of living memory.
Alas, instead of tapering off, it expanded to include all white men. This phase happened quickly, it's pretty much complete. Now white women are feeling the precursors.
Just as with Appalachia, the left's problem with whites is our intractibility. We're not hated per se, we're a menace to navigation. We don't "cling" to our values, we embrace them and live them, despite the constant sliming. They hate it.

Revenge, Taki's Magazine - Incapable of the merest self-reflection, the modern left merely ramps up the false premises and baseless moral histrionics. It’s these levels of needless dementia and raging paranoia over a nonexistent threat that are dangerous, especially when these perma-geeks have been working themselves into justifying all sorts of violence against their childhood enemies for years now. The fact that these turd nuggets are so far down the Delusion Hole that they’re willing to start bombing places because they lost an election is a sign we’re dealing with the mentally afflicted. Anyone who wishes that America would merely have the same immigration policies as the rest of the world is a “fascist” and a “white supremacist” and a “Nazi.”

  Naïvecons, American Greatness - The expulsion meme has become popular among the naïvecons. They are increasingly frank about who they’d like to expel: the more rural you are, the redder your state, the lower your income, the more working class your background, the more you cling to guns and God, the more you vote Republican, the more you deserve the boot. For those on the actual Right, merely arguing that the United States enforce existing laws is to be called a Nazi, heckled in public, and picketed at one’s home. But the pro-illegal immigrant, anti-native-born Left can vent their spleens and prosper. They despise you. They hold you in contempt. They want you kicked out of your own country and replaced by foreigners. They are your enemy.

Gang rule, Z Man - There may be rules, but what matters is who enforces the rules and on whom the rules are to be applied. In this case, the wide ranging criminal organization known as the Democratic Party will never let their people get punished by the Republicans. Those rules about complying with a subpoena from Congress only apply when the gangsters with power can enforce them and they will only enforce them when it suits their interests. This is gang life. This is the gangster state. The people inside these agencies have a primary loyalty to the gang, not to the laws of the country or the alleged institutions charged with promulgating and enforcing the laws. In gang life, you are first loyal to the gang.

Identity, Tablet - For many, no defense or condemnation of cultural appropriation is required, because such complaints are almost beyond the realm of comprehension in the first place. Without cultural appropriation we would not be able to eat Italian food, listen to reggae, or go to Yoga. Without cultural appropriation we would not be able to drink tea or use chopsticks or speak English or apply algebra, or listen to jazz, or write novels. Almost every cultural practice we engage in is the byproduct of centuries of cross-cultural pollination. It is by considering the power dynamics at play that the logic of cultural appropriation starts to become clear. 

Bombing Russia, National Interest - On August 23, 1939, Germany and Russia signed the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. In Allied eyes, the Soviet Union had changed from Germany's nemesis into Germany's ally. So why not strike the Soviet Union and kill two birds with one stone? Thus was born Operation Pike. Flying from Allied bases in Iran and Syria, as well as neutral but anti-Soviet Turkey, more than a hundred British and French bombers would continuously attack Soviet oil fields in the Caucuses in a night strategic bombing campaign. This was more than idle planning. Unmarked British reconnaissance planes flying from Iraqi airfields actually photographed oil installations at Baku and Batumi in March 1940.

How The Vlad and Donald Show Got Gaskets Popping All Over the Imperial City

Via Billy

By David Stockman

The Vlad and Donald show in Helsinki yesterday was simply brilliant and breathtaking---
we'd say even a beautiful thing to behold.

Between them, they left CNN's nattering nabobs of neocon nonsense sounding like the
shrieking monkeys they actually are. And that's to say nothing of the fools they made out
of the newly minted liberal and progressive war-mongers on the Dem side of the aisle in
Washington or the so-called journalists who fill 90% of the space in the so-called
mainstream media with endless pro-war propaganda.

But most of all it was the single greatest blow to the War Party since it turned
Imperial Washington into a colossal menace bent on global hegemony when the Soviet Union
slithered off the pages of history in 1991.

 We have said all along that Putin and Russia have been demonized because the Warfare
State desperately needs an "enemy" to justify its $800 billion annual mugging of
America's taxpayers. Yet today's spontaneous chorus by the two leaders in behalf of
détente, dialogue and diplomacy puts the kibosh on that Big Lie more completely than
could 100 Ted Talks or a year's worth of pro-peace op eds in the Washington Post.
So Flyover America will have no trouble seeing the good of the Helsinki Summit. Trump
and Putin just killed it on every topic where the War Party and its shills in the press
wanted to drive a wedge.

Six ballot initiatives on the NC ballot in 2018

Vote Poster.jpg

As of July 12, 2018, six statewide ballot measures were certified for the ballot in North Carolina on November 6, 2018.

North Carolina does not allow any form of citizen-initiated ballot measures, so all ballot measures must be referred by the legislature. In order for the legislature to put a proposed amendment on the ballot, it must be approved by a 60 percent majority of both the legislative chambers. Once on the ballot, constitutional amendments must be approved by a majority of the electorate.

Mid-term elections are just around the corner. Once again, politicians are doing all they can to get our votes. As always, the Democrats promise their base everything and more.

Polls show that many Americans are very happy with the President’s economy and where the country is headed. That is good news.  The poll also contained additional good news for Republicans heading into the November midterm elections: Seven out of 10 GOP voters told CBS that they prefer a candidate that the president supports.

Brett Kavanaugh Repeatedly Ruled in Favor of the Security State, Most Recently for the CIA — and Against Me

Via Weaver

On a Monday afternoon, on July 9, the D.C. Court of Appeals handed down a 2-1 decision against me and in favor of the CIA in a long-running Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. At 4:20 p.m., Judges Brett Kavanaugh and Gregory Katsas, a Trump appointee, filed a 14-page opinion with the clerk of the court in Washington. They ruled that the CIA had acted “reasonably” in responding to my request for certain ancient files related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. Appended to their decision was a 17-page dissent from their colleague Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson who strongly objected to their decision.

Louisa County Wants Massive Confederate Flag on I-64 Near Charlottesville Removed

On Saturday, March 31st, we raised and dedicated the “Charlottesville I-64 Spirit of Defiance Memorial Battle Flag” on private property adjacent to Interstate 64, in Louisa County.  We reported at the time that the property owner had contacted us a year earlier, when Wes Bellamy and Charlottesville City Council voted to break Virginia State Law and attempt to remove the Robert E. Lee monument from Lee Park in Charlottesville. http://vaflaggers.blogspot.com/2018/03/spirit-of-defiance-massive-confederate.html In our report, we also shared that the flag served as a memorial and was erected just a few yards from the grave of a Confederate Veteran.

Before beginning site work, both the landowner and a representative of the Va Flaggers contacted the Louisa Planning and Zoning Division and inquired about building permits and height restrictions.  Both were told, on separate occasions by the same employee, that no building permit was needed and there was no height restriction.  This was confirmed by information found on the Louisa County zoning website, and is not unusual in rural counties in Virginia, especially on property zoned for agriculture.  Site work began in October of 2017, the pole was erected in January of 2018.

On April 16th, two weeks AFTER the flag was raised, and almost three months after the pole was installed on January 24, and apparently under pressure by leftists in neighboring Charlottesville , the Louisa County Board of Supervisors introduced a “stop gap” resolution to AMEND the zoning for A2 (the same zoning as our memorial site) to restrict the height of structures to 60' and to remove the exemptions for flag poles and monuments. The amendment was voted on and passed at their June meeting.

On April 17th, the NEXT DAY after the zoning amendment resolution was introduced, an inspection was performed on the property and the pole was allegedly found to be in violation of the (just passed) 60' height restriction. A formal notice of violation was served, claiming that since a building permit was not obtained, a new one had to be acquired, and the new zoning restriction would apply.

Louisa County thought they had found a way to force the flag down. The process to appeal is expensive and time consuming and the average citizen doesn’t have the time or resources to fight these kinds of heavy handed attempts to restrict First Amendment property rights.  We do not scare so easily.

We immediately hired an attorney who specializes in zoning matters and filed an appeal based on the information given to us by the planning and zoning employee, the illegal way in which the “emergency stop gap” zoning amendment was handled, the fact that the zoning ordinance exempted memorials at the time of construction, the invalidity of the zoning ordinance amendment in that is specifically eliminates the flagpole exemption in ONE zone only, and that all of these attempts are in fact discriminatory and unconstitutional applications of the zoning ordinance designed specifically to force the removal of a Confederate Memorial Battle Flag.

The appeal will be heard tomorrow night, July 18th at 7:00 p.m. at the Louisa County Office building, located at 1 Woolfolk Avenue, Louisa, VA 23093.  The meeting is a public hearing and we encourage all LOUISA COUNTY RESIDENTS to attend and speak and ask the Board of Zoning Appeals to reverse the determination of the planning and zoning board and allow the memorial to remain since it was erected before the zoning changes were made, we acted on good faith based on the information given, and since the First Amendment guarantees us the right to fly whatever flag we wish on private property.

Terrorism, restlessness, and Bastille Day

Via Bjorn

“There is a satanic quality to the French Revolution that distinguishes it from everything we have ever seen or anything we are ever likely to see in the future.” – Joseph de Maistre
With Francophiles throughout the world observing Bastille Day on Saturday, July 14th, some may feel it is poor taste to bring up Maximilien Robespierre. Maybe it is, but there can be no question that Robespierre’s story, embarrassing or no, is one of the foundation stones upon which modern France has been built. Nor can there be much doubt that an honest examination of democratic modernity’s problems entails a confrontation with Robespierre’s legacy.

Rand Paul sides with Trump on Russia, says critics 'motivated' by dislike of president

Via Billy
President Trump dug in Tuesday amid bipartisan criticism over his press conference with Vladimir Putin, claiming the "Fake News" is ignoring what he described as a successful summit -- and his tough stance with NATO actually helped the alliance counter Russia's influence.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., on Monday expressed his approval of President Donald Trump’s handling of Russia despite the tsunami of criticism the president faced after his press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“It’s gotten so ridiculous that someone has to stand up and say we should try to engage even our adversaries and open up our lines of communication,” Paul told Politico after the controversial press conference.

“We’re going to talk to the president about some small steps in order to try to thaw the relations between our countries,” the senator added, noting that he’s set to travel to Russia early next month to continue the dialogue that Trump started.
