Don't cry for me America

This short history lesson happened in Argentina, and it’s now happening in the U.S. "Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina” or should say in “America”

NC: Confederate monument removed in downtown Winston-Salem

Via Reborn"The Confederate monument in Winston-Salem was removed today with the usual demented cheers. He was to be sent to a cemetery in Winston-Salem to be eventually debased. I hate it that the communist Bolsheviks seem to be winning. Bring out the cyanide and water spray bottles."

Romance Over: ICE Officers Send Scathing Letter To Trump

ICE officers who endorsed President Trump in 2016 now say he has failed to follow through on his get-tough promises, saying catch-and-release of immigrants living illegally in the U.S. is not only still happening, but has gone into “overdrive.”…

The National ICE Council had previously endorsed President Trump in the 2016 presidential election. At the time, the National ICE Council noted that 2016 marked the first time that the Council had ever endorsed a presidential candidate. "In his immigration policy, [Trump] has outlined core policies needed to restore immigration security — including support for increased interior enforcement and border security, an end to sanctuary cities, an end to catch-and-release, mandatory detainers, and the canceling of executive amnesty and non-enforcement directives," the Council said at the time, according to Politico.

Army Rangers: Thoughts and History of the Crest and Beret

I have the one on the left.

The Rangers of the US Army are clearly one of the finest fighting forces in the world, and is a unit and concept almost uniquely American, with its genesis well before American independence, even unto the days when the colonies were barely established and before they achieved any sense of cohesion.  Despite the viability of the idea, the main nemesis that it has fought for its identity and survival has never been an enemy on the battlefield, but has instead been its parent Army.  It is an axiom that large organizations abhor elites and that applies doubly so to the military, and examples abound in the ebb and flow of the history of the Rangers.  (I am not too fond of the term 'elite'; I prefer 'specialized' – maybe it's just my Marine background.)

How Middle America Is to Be Dispossessed

How Middle America Is to Be Dispossessed

In all but one of the last seven presidential elections, Republicans lost the popular vote. George W. Bush and Donald Trump won only by capturing narrow majorities in the Electoral College.

Hence the grand strategy of the left: to enlarge and alter the U.S. electorate so as to put victory as far out of reach for national Republicans as it is today for California Republicans, and to convert the GOP into America’s permanent minority party.

Subsequently it emerged that virtually every attempt to share or merely mention an article, including in private messages, would be actively blocked by the world's largest social network, with the explanation that "the link you tried to visit goes against our community standards."

Devastating: Pentagon Investigating Army Two-Star General for Retaliation Against Green Berets

The Pentagon inspector general is investigating allegations that a two-star Army general is retaliating against active-duty Green Beret instructors under his command who have voiced concerns over his lowering of standards for Green Beret candidates, three sources familiar with the matter told Breitbart News.
The allegations involve Army Maj. Gen. Kurt Sonntag, who is commanding general of the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare School and Center (SWCS) where Green Berets are selected, trained, and graduated.

Breitbart News spoke with more than a half dozen current and former Green Beret instructors and several others in the Green Beret community, whose firsthand accounts paint an alarming picture of an Army general gone rogue, a hostile command climate where soldiers are fearful of retribution for speaking out, and a total breakdown of unit morale.

The Young America Movement–Changing Our History

Image result for To The Victors Go The Myths And Monuments

The very informative book To The Victors Go The Myths And Monuments  by Arthur R. Thompson deals at some length with a group called Young America that was very active in this country during the middle of the 19th century.

Mr. Thompson observed, on page 215 of his book that: “The Carbonari’s Young America (YA) reached its ascendency in the late 1850s and played a key role in laying the groundwork for a future civil war. After the Civil War they faded as a visible organization even though their ideas have never faded from the American scene, as witnessed by the Spanish-American War and the modern neoconservative movement. YA aims since the Civil War have been generally carried out by the establishment of the major political parties. In other words, the goals of YA became the established American foreign policy without being a visible movement from the Civil War until 1921, with the formation of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), when their tactics again became obvious, even as a more visible organization than before the Civil War. By the mid-20th century there were several elite organizations promoting the YA goals, all with interlocking directorates and membership.”
