If Shakespeare were alive today, he would instantly recognize the New York Times and its treasonous ilk, because Shakespeare feared nothing more than treason and civil war -- which is exactly what happened to the Roman Empire after the plotters stabbed Julius Caesar to death in the Forum. In our Civil War, a war fought about the Constitution and freedom, 600,000 people died; it was far and away our worst war, and today´s demagogues are still trying to twist the reality of that war to sucker all the airheads of the left. In American history it was the Democrats, of
What would Shakespeare think of a play that portrayed Obama hanging from the old oak tree? IMO, producing a play that centers on the murder of a sitting POTUS should not only be shut down but the promoters investigated by SS. Either we have civility and decency or we do not.
FTA: “Which is really what this fight is about. The left hates the Constitution, while conservatives revere its wisdom and strength. Donald Trump is not the biggest issue: The US Constitution is the real issue.”
This existential crisis facing our nation is something the NeverTrumpers and Reluctant Trumpers have yet to fully grasp. They still focus on the President’s personality quirks, and hyperventilate over every anonymous sourced story printed by the WaPoo or the Slimes. There are also many Trump supporters who hold unrealistic expectations as to the speed in which the swamp can be drained and which sections to drain first. The common thread of Trump’s “liberal” and “conservative” critics is using the old program to follow our current political play. I believe this could be the last season of D.C. Kabuki Theater Productions.
This first year of Donald Trump’s presidency is pivotal. I am amazed at how much of the MAGA agenda has already been accomplished, or serious work begun on the major ticket items. At the same time he is dealing with the Deep State Swamp and all its treasonous snakes. I submit The Donald is whipping those snakes into a mass suicidal frenzy by using the system to break the system. The majority of voters in 37 states elected President Trump to use his talents and skills to restore the Constitutional Authority stolen from us over the last 100 years. I think we owe the master builder at least a year or two to clean up the federal government Toxic Waste site. Patience is required in the Time of Trump.
I wonder what would happen if a play was put on with hussien being the main subject of being on trial for crimes aommittrd against our Constitution. Same play and outcome. Different characters. Think it would be shut down?
Shakespeare, arguably the greatest writer who ever lived, is an acquired taste--one must love poetry, especially blank verse (unrhymed iambic pentameter)--but his near magical arrangements of words common and rare still echo in the minds of literate people. The themes in his plays were universal, as applicable to today as to the Elizabethan Era in the late Sixteenth and early Seventeenth Century. As for Mueller, BFF of Comey, "Doth not Brutus bootless kneel?" Nice essay by James Lewis, well worth your few minutes of attention.
His warnings about the real intentions of the faux Trump assassins--and the real ones that are no doubt out there--are au point, not to be ignored. The Left knows nothing but destruction.
If Shakespeare were alive today he´d be wondering why the scenery never changes in his casket. Has nothing to do with anything but we´ve never had a civil war. The War Between the States was an attempt to leave an unhappy marriage. Or a second War of Independence. A civil war is when two or more factions are fighting for the control of a government. Not an attempt to leave. President Trump doesn´t need dead authors to defend him. Not even the dumbest demoncrap who ever used Food Stamps to pay for drugs or hookers believes PT committed an impeachable offense. This is the stragery by the Left. To hamstring PT to have an unending lawsuits, investigations, etc. I am amazed that PT has accomplished as much as he has considering the Scorched Earth policy of the Left. PT is smart enough to know that being nice won´t work and the best defense is an offense. And I hope he continues to stick it to them.
There is a lot of speculation about Shakespeare´s politics in this piece and such speculation is bootless. Shakespeare is opaque when it comes to his personal point of view. it is true that his plays that use politics as a backdrop end in a strong power taking over but that could easily be that any other end would be considered seditious and the theaters could be shut down by the Queen (or later King James) anytime for any reason. indeed they WERE shut down only 26 years after Shakespeare´s death but not by the monarch but by Cromwell and the puritans.
To illustrate the fruitless nature of speculating on what Shakespeare did or did not believe (on politics or much of anything else), the defenders of this production of Julius Caeser maintain (probably disingenuously but not implausibly) that their production is a warning against using violence to change politics, just as the author of this essay maintains. In other words, the author here and the producers of this JC come to the same conclusion from entirely different points of view and use Shakespeare as the source material.
I demand EQUAL TREATMENT! One HALF of the ´Caeser´ characters should represent FEMALE politicians, and 14 Percent should represent ´Politicians of Colour´, and another 15 percent should represent Hispanic Politicians, as well as Proportional Representation of Democrat Politicians in the House and Senate, as well as Proportional Representation of Prominent New York City and New York State politicians!
The White House on Monday formally sent the nomination of Christopher Wray to be FBI director to the Senate. The Justice Department released a statement from Wray, who said he was “honored and humbled” by the nomination and looks forward to his confirmation by the Senate. “From my earliest days working with agents as a line prosecutor to my time working with them at the Department of Justice in the aftermath of 9/11, I have been inspired by the men and women of the FBI – inspired by their professionalism, integrity, courage, and sacrifice for the public.” Wray said. “If
The al-Qaeda chapter that hacked an Atlanta man to death two years ago said in a new "code of conduct" for jihadists that killing American nationals in target countries is a "foremost priority" for the terror group. Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent was formally launched in 2014 after al-Qaeda meticulously brought various militant groups under its umbrella to concentrate on operations in Burma, Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. They were only designated a terrorist organization by the United States in June 2016, a full 16 months after the murder of Avijit Roy. In February 2015, Bangladeshi-American secularist blogger Roy was hacked
Al Gore is ‘an idiot’ who only made his vast fortune just because he happened to get lucky by obsessing about climate change. Possibly we’d all guessed this already. Now it has been confirmed by an expert in the field of finance – Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway vice chairman and fellow investment billionaire Charlie Munger. Munger, who was speaking at an informal investors’ Q & A – recorded here – clearly does not rate Gore’s intelligence or investment acumen. “Al Gore has come into you fellas business, Munger said. “He has made $3 or $400 million in your business. And
President Trump and high-level administration officials are using a lighter touch to help the Republican healthcare bill through the Senate as compared with the House, putting tremendous pressure on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as skeptical GOP lawmakers threaten to defect on a key procedural vote this week. "Sink or swim, this bill rests on the shoulders of leadership," one GOP Senate aide told the Washington Examiner. "It is their product with minimal White House involvement." The White House has publicly backed the bill and expressed optimism that an Obamacare overhaul could advance before lawmakers leave for the July 4 recess
Manhattan´s District Attorney has slammed new Republican legislation that ´plays into the hands of terrorists´ by allowing anyone with a firearm licence to carry concealed weapons in other states- even in those with stricter licensing requirements. Cy Vance said that it was a ´dangerous ´ bill that is ´supported I am sure by ISIS.´ He made the comments yesterday while speaking to John Catsimatidis on his 970 AM radio show about the GOP plan. He said that security would be seriously compromised by the legislation because some states - like New York - have stricter licencing laws than others yet
The Assad regime in Syria is preparing for another chemical weapons attack on its own people, the White House warned in an ominous statement on Monday night. The attack will be similar to one in April which prompted the US to launch missile strikes on a military base, the statement said, and will likely harm ´innocent children and civilians´. ´The United States has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime that would likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children. The activities are similar to preparations the regime made before its April
Senate Republicans´ plan to repeal and replace Obamacare has put Medicaid in the spotlight, thanks to proposals including a move to let states impose work requirements on low-income recipients. Medicaid "went way above the poverty line to many able-bodied Americans," White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told ABC News program "This Week" on Sunday. "If they are able-bodied and they want to work, then they´ll have employer-sponsored benefits like you and I do." Yet most Medicaid recipients who can work already are working even without such a requirement, according to data from the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, which notes that
The Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017, the Senate Republican replacement to the Affordable Care Act, is estimated to reduce the deficit by $321 billion from 2017 to 2026, according to the Congressional Budget Office´s scoring of the legislation. In comparison to the Obamacare replacement, the American Health Care Act, passed by the House, this bill would save an additional $202 billion over this time period. During this span, the budget office also projects that spending will be reduced by $1 trillion and government revenues will be reduced by $701 billion. The legislation´s greatest savings come from reducing spending on
Senator Bernie Sanders appeared unhappy to be questioned by a Fox News reporter about an FBI investigation into actions by the Vermonter and his wife. Sanders´ wife Jane was the president of a now-defunct college in Vermont, and is accused of distorting school donations in order to secure a bank loan, FoxNews.com reported. Jane and Bernie Sanders both retained attorneys to deal with a federal investigation into Mrs. Sanders actions. Investigators are also looking into whether Sen. Sanders´ office inappropriately tried to pressure the bank to approve the loan. Fox News Senate producer Kara Rowland encountered Sanders in Washington and
White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Monday delivered his press briefing off-camera once again, eliciting some protests but giving no clear answer about when filming will be allowed to resume. It’s been a week now since Spicer gave an on-camera briefing. “Why don’t we turn the cameras on, Sean?” CNN’s Jim Acosta asked several times during the briefing. “Why don’t we turn the cameras on?” “Can we have the cameras on, Sean? Can we have the cameras on?” After several such outbursts by Acosta, another reporter asked Spicer about the White House’s decision. “We will continue to have a
Hillary Clinton and aligned political operatives manufactured the illusion of a connection between Russian entities and the Trump campaign/organization. Those manufactured points of evidence, including a sketchy Russian Dossier, were used by the political intelligence community (Clapper, Brennan Comey) to open an investigation of nothingness – to nowhere. (Photos) The mere existence of the investigation was then used as the originating point for a series of media intel leaks (the narrative) intended to cloud and damage the Trump campaign/organization. CNN, The Washington Post and New York Times led the charge: Washington (CNN) – The FBI last year used a dossier
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas had stern words for his colleagues when the Court declined to hear a case challenging California’s handgun laws, saying that the jurists do not understand the importance of self-defense. The case, supported by the National Rifle Association, involves San Diego resident Edward Peruta, who challenged his county’s refusal to grant him permission to carry a concealed firearm outside of his home. “For those of us who work in marbled halls, guarded constantly by a vigilant and dedicated police force, the guarantees of the Second Amendment might seem antiquated and superfluous,” Thomas wrote after most members
President Donald Trump broke a long standing White House tradition of hosting a dinner to celebrate Ramadan, a Muslim religious holiday. Hosting an Iftar dinner to mark the end of Ramadan fasting is a tradition that started in the Clinton years and was continued by Presidents Bush and Obama. Over the past two decades presidents have honored the holy day by hosting such a dinner. Thomas Jefferson was the first president noted in history to host Itfar in 1805 with an invitation to the dinner stating ´Dinner will be on the table precisely at sun-set – ´ the invitation read. ´The favour
A feminist magazine is calling on all white women to “do their part to prevent white supremacy” and abort their white babies. This is sick beyond words. The feminist Medusa Magazine reported: In a progressive society, it is often white families that stand in the way of equality and justice. Systemic white supremacy depends, first and foremost, on the white family unit. When white conquerors forcefully penetrated the indigenous, egalitarian homeland of the Native peoples of America, they were quick to replicate their white societies, initiating their parasitism by establishing white plantations, headed by white fathers, submissive white mothers, and,
An angry couple assaulted a Georgia fast food owner and her daughter outside a restaurant over a chicken and fries order — leaving the two women battered and authorities in disbelief. “I have a severely broken nose that requires surgery,” Quik Chik owner Jeanette Norris told the Daily News Sunday. “My daughter is scared. She was hit on her right side and has a black eye.” Norris was violently attacked at around 3 p.m. Thursday at the restaurant in Baxley after a couple complained about an order — prompting an argument that led suspect, Latasha Smith, to slap and punch
Actor and filmmaker Rob Reiner was shredded by social media users over the weekend after he called for an “all out war” to resist President Donald Trump. Writing on Twitter Sunday, the All in the Family star mentioned a Fox News report about the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 election. “When Fox says that DT colluding with the enemy is not a crime, the fight to save Democracy is now an all out war. US-Stay strong. #Treason,” he wrote. (Tweet) Reiner’s remarks were slammed by several social media users, many of them suggesting that the actor’s tweet
Have you ever had an old grand-uncle that you haven´t seen in ages and that you have almost completely forgotten about suddenly show up from out of nowhere? His return quickly reminds you why you originally found him so annoying since he is still obsessed about the same grudges upon which he still continues expounding in an aimless manner. In this case it is former liberal talk show host Phil Donahue who appeared with Brian Stelter on his CNN Reliable Sources show on June 25. Yes, it was the same old by the numbers predictable liberal Phil and, of course,
I’ve been talking about the importance of protecting against voting-machine hacks since 2002. And now, finally, people are starting to take me seriously. The move to paperless voting started in response to the Florida “hanging chad” fiasco in the 2000 presidential election. Some people (like me) thought this was a mistake, but such concerns were often dismissed. Now, apparently, you can’t be paranoid enough. As Politico’s Bob King noted, while 10 years ago critics of paperless voting were called paranoid, now both parties are worried. It remains true that there is no actual evidence that a single vote was changed by hackers
The Obama adventures continue! Barack Obama and his family went rafting on the Ayung River in Bali on Monday amid their nine-day vacation to Indonesia, where the former president lived for several years as a child. Obama, wife Michelle and their daughters, Sasha and Malia, were invited to vacation in Indonesia by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, who also asked the family to visit the presidential Bogor Palace in West Java during their trip, according to ABC News. Obama will also speak at an Indonesian Diaspora Congress in Jakarta on July 1. Obama moved to Indonesia in 1967 at age 6
At last we know why Chicago’s homicide level is so out of control: Gangs, not police control the streets. The gangs know it; the police know it; and now, thanks to DNAinfo.com/Chicago, we know it. A week ago, Chicago street gangs held a huge party in a park, with a thousand people attending, some brandishing firearms, terrifying neighbors for hours. The police sent 25 squad cars, yet were outnumbered and unable to really do anything. (snip)Obviously, there is no political will to take back control of the streets. So everyone gets the message that gangs rule. No wonder the murder
The New York Post has an explosive report on the infamous “dossier” that tried to smear Donald Trump in order to swing the presidential election to Hillary Clinton. The source of the dossier is a Democratic Party opposition research firm called Fusion GPS: "The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House. Fusion GPS was on the payroll of
A U.S. warship struck by a container vessel in Japanese waters failed to respond to warning signals or take evasive action before a collision that killed seven of its crew, according to a report of the incident by the Philippine cargo ship´s captain. Multiple U.S. and Japanese investigations are under way into how the guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald and the much larger ACX Crystal container ship collided in clear weather south of Tokyo Bay in the early hours of June 17. In the first detailed account from one of those directly involved, the cargo ship´s captain said the ACX Crystal had
There is a place for contempt in our public discourse. We should have contempt for a regime in North Korea that brutalized a young American student named Otto Warmbier. We should have contempt for a regime in Syria that uses poison gas to massacre innocent men, women and children. We should have contempt for Islamic State terrorists who behead Americans, burn people alive in cages and systematically rape Yazidi girls. But we should not have contempt for each other. Yet, we do. Our politics today is descending into a bitter spiral of contempt. And we saw the consequences in the
The Supreme Court said Monday that most of President Trump’s travel ban executive order can go into effect, delivering the first major victory to the new administration on perhaps his most controversial policy to date. Justices said the lower court rulings that blocked Mr. Trump’s policy were far too broad, and said the president can begin to enforce his ban against foreigners who don’t already have some ties to the U.S. That means the president can begin denying visas to visitors from six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — who don’t already have family in the U.S., or some other prior connection such as
