Stage a grand military parade?
Absolutely – it’s overdue

New York Post, by Rich Lowry

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 2/9/2018 9:47:11 AM

The Pentagon has confirmed that it is in the preliminary stages of planning a military parade down Pennsylvania Avenue — one of President Trump’s fondest desires. Trump was, understandably, impressed in a visit to France last July by the pageantry of the Bastille Day parade. The parade dates back to the 1880s. Nothing the United States comes up with will match its resonance or its beloved, unifying nature. Trump’s motivation for ordering up a parade anyway is pretty obvious. He likes big, brassy displays, and he gets a kick out of being the commander in chief of the most impressive military on

We have parades for everything else, why not the military? That would be better than a parade for NFL thugs, just because they won a football game!

The military works for ALL of us. NFL thugs work for themselves!

I´m in the planning stages of looking at my financial budget to attend this.
I´d love to see this happen. Everybody from Cub Scouts and Brownies to college ROTC leading it and then a full battalion of every branch in the Military full combat armed and then tanks of every sort. A full flyover of planes and helicopters. All this interspersed with marching bands from grammar schools to our finest Military performers.
BRING IT ON in the full glory of The United States as we can do oh so well.

Hope it is held in DC, after national CCW reciprocity goes into effect.

It´s disappointing that a professional opinion writer of Lowry´s stature would toss out the phrase "one of President Trump’s fondest desires". That´s the kind of thing a ninth-grader might drop into an essay. Lowry obviously cannot support the contention, and as poster #1 said, it´s there just for the snark.

Lowry also overlooks the deterrent effect of a militaristic display by a (perceived) slightly nutso president. Trump understands that we have a lot of credibility to recover.

For the last few decades, the democrats have been full tilt anti-military. Give up the biggest parade we have ever had and pay for it with all the worthless handouts we give to non-productive members of society. End all the free lunches, that most don´t deserve.

“I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion.”—Alexander the Great Some men walk into a room and the room just belongs to them. The head guy in the room. The man in charge. It doesn’t matter if it’s a room of five or a room of 500, everyone looks. It’s not a height thing. It’s not a wealth thing. It’s not about brains or brawn or what kind of car he drives. It is simply a matter of having “it,” and “it” is a quality that few men possess. Luckily for America, Trump has this in spades. It may be maddening to his domestic opponents in the media, but it is positively enraging to America’s

A Democratic Watergate is unfolding before our eyes. It’s no wonder Obama’s former CIA chief John Brennan is tweeting like a madman, attacking President Trump, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.Brennan’s running scared because it’s starting to look like he may have been a co-conspirator in the biggest political scandal since, well, Watergate. Yesterday, Trump met with FBI Director Christopher Wray, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to inquire if Brennan’s CIA and the FBI spied on his 2016 presidential campaign, as reported by

Medicaid and the Democratic
War on Work
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 5/21/2018 6:40:16     Post Reply
When the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that states could experiment with work requirements as a prerequisite for Medicaid eligibility, the Democrats denounced the policy as racist and cruel. They didn’t explain how such requirements could possibly be racist in states whose Medicaid populations are nearly 100 percent white. Nor did they say what is cruel about asking Medicaid enrollees to do something that will, according to numerous studies, improve their well-being. The science says that work will be good for their physical, psychological, and fiscal health. So, why have the Democrats declared war on work?

Krugman on Drugs
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 5/15/2018 2:02:59     Post Reply
When President Trump introduced the “American Patients First” blueprint for reducing drug prices, it was inevitable that the Democrats and their media enablers would immediately denounce the plan, the team that put it together, and the President himself. (Snip) Thus, it wasn’t shocking that Paul Krugman’s contribution to the chorus of complaints also included that shopworn argument. It was something of a surprise, however, to see that Krugman so far forgot himself that he let the cat out of the bag concerning why allowing Medicare to “negotiate” drug prices is such a bad idea.

Why Trump Is a President Like No Other
American Greatness, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 5/15/2018 11:20:45     Post Reply
Conrad Black’s erudite biography of Donald J. Trump is different from the usual in mediis rebus accounts of first-year presidents. He avoids the Bob Woodward fly-on-the-wall unattributed anecdote, and “they say” gossip mongering. Nor is the book a rush-to-publish product from former insiders of the Trump campaign or administration. Instead, Black, a prolific and insightful historian, adopts the annalistic method in carefully tracing Trump’s earliest years in business through his various commercial misadventures, financial recoveries, and sometimes wild antics. Black’s aim is to illustrate how much of what Trump has done since announcing his presidential candidacy in summer 2015 is

President Trump, elected primarily on domestic issues, has surprised critics and detractors alike by putting a big imprint on foreign affairs in his first 16 months in office. Recent international developments — the president’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and the moving of the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem — are only the latest significant moves. By contrast, Trump’s major achievements at home have been largely limited to the passage of a large tax cut in December and the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch as a Supreme Court justice more than a year ago. But in the international arena

Trump’s Excellent Plan
to Reduce Drug Prices
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 5/14/2018 5:55:17     Post Reply
Last Friday, President Trump caused consternation among Democrats and their media allies by introducing an eminently sensible blueprint for reducing drug prices. The 50-point “American Patients First” plan addresses four broad challenges: High list prices for drugs, government programs overpaying for drugs, rising out-of-pocket costs for consumers, and foreign governments free-riding off American innovation. The blueprint relies on free market competition and private-sector negotiation rather than regulatory coercion and price controls. And, assuming his plan works as designed, President Trump will have succeeded where his

“All options are on the table,” one of his top strategists said in an interview this week when asked what Blankenship might do to play spoiler. One option that’s not on the table is running as an independent himself, thanks to West Virginia’s “sore loser” law. But he could run attack ads against nominee Patrick Morrisey or even help bankroll a third-party challenger. He’s got the dough, and apparently the butthurt, to do it.How much can we fault this guy for not being in a “party unity” mood when Mitch McConnell just spent $2 million to make sure he lost

Among those slamming President Trump for withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal are several members of Congress, mostly Democrats, who opposed it then and say they still do now. People like New York’s Sen. Chuck Schumer, who came out against the deal but then sat quietly rather than publicly push to defeat it. After Trump killed it, he said: “The right thing to do would have been to try and come up with our allies with an agreement on those issues and let the nuclear part of this continue as is because it’s not being violated in any way.” Huh?

As death flutters around the back-yard deck of Senator John McCain, it’s sad to read reports that the scrappy Sandcutter regrets picking Governor Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate and wishes he had instead picked Senator Jos. Lieberman. The only person diminished by this kind of talk is Senator McCain himself, and the heroic Arizonan deserves better.Not that we lack for love of Mr. Lieberman. The Sun was the first newspaper to sketch the rationale for Mr. McCain to bring in Mr. Lieberman as his running mate. That was in an enthusiastic editorial called “The Logic of Lieberman.”

Confirm Haspel: The intelligent
choice for CIA
New Hampshire Union Leader, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 5/11/2018 12:30:19     Post Reply
The use of enhanced interrogation techniques is a legitimate public policy question, though not the most pressing one facing America’s intelligence community. Yet it has dominated the confirmation battle of Gina Haspel, President Trump’s nominee to head the Central Intelligence Agency. Several senators want to block Haspel because she served as station chief in Thailand when al Qaeda terrorists were subjected to waterboarding and other unpleasant interrogation methods. Critics call this torture. The CIA has since ceased using those techniques. Haspel says she would not restart an interrogation program. Much of Haspel’s 33-year career remains classified, but she has received stellar endorsements

NFL club owners are considering potential 15-yard penalties for kneeling during the national anthem among ways of coping with a backlash over player protests, Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday. According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard

President Trump cannot block people from his @realDonaldTrump account just because he doesn’t like their political views, a Manhattan federal judge ruled on Wednesday. Doing so violates their First Amendment right to free speech because Twitter is a “public forum,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in a landmark ruling that could change how public officials use Twitter. “We reject the defendants’ contentions that the First Amendment does not apply in this case and that the President’s personal First Amendment interests supersede those of plaintiffs,” the judge wrote in her 75-page ?decision.
