Revolution and Worse to Come
National Review Online, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 4/25/2018 4:34:49 AM

On the domestic and foreign fronts, the Trump administration has prompted economic growth and restored U.S. deterrence. Polls show increased consumer confidence, and in some, Trump himself has gained ground. Yet good news is bad news to the Resistance and its strange continued efforts to stop an elected president in a way it failed to do in the 2016 election. Indeed, the aim of the so-called Resistance to Donald J. Trump is ending Trump’s presidency by any means necessary before the 2020 election. Or, barring that, it seeks to so delegitimize him that he becomes presidentially impotent. It has been only

Calling it scary is a bit of an understatement. If the Commucrat Left doesn´t get what it wants...maybe in 2018, definitely in 2020...are they going to completely lose what´s left of their pea-brains, forget about protests and signs and vagina hats and begin an overt armed assault on the Right? Don´t say it can´t happen here because, for example, I dare say that little Nazis like David Hogg would be more than willing to shoot you to deprive you of your 2nd Amendment rights if they don´t get the politicians to do it. But that´s just one issue; there´re many more for them to lose their minds and become violent over.

Load up...scary is just how it begins.

We are past scary. How quickly we have forgotten Bernie Sander’s campaign worker James Hodgkinson’s final solution on what to do with the election outcome. Shooting to kill Republican congressmen and staff on a baseball field.

Well written and well reasoned.
We may have reached a tipping point in American politics that is sad. Rational discourse is disappearing.
Policy differences are magnified to positions of mortal combat.
I have no easy answers for reversing the mess, except one.
Congress has the authority under the U.S. constitution to define the parameters of the federal courts. It is time to limit those courts in their jurisdiction. There are too many lawsuits being filed against the president, on matters that belong exclusivewly to the president.p

FTA: “We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth. The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary.”

When VDH makes this kind of statement, it is time to pay attention. He sees what many of us fear will be the next step. As a country we cannot go on like this. Due to the fact that the Republican leadership has failed to strongly support this President, we are witnessing a disturbing reality. Because there has been no pushback against the insanity that has gripped the left, they feel empowered to ramp up their efforts. When our leaders failed to call out this horrific behavior and rhetoric, the left doubled-down and have become totally unhinged.

The cowards who were secretly hoping that the left would be successful and rid them of the thorn in their establishment Swamp loving sides, made it a point to distance themselves or join the chorus proclaiming the President unfit. However, much to their dismay, the American people see right through their perfidy. Their support is firmly rooted in the President’s agenda and will remain there. In fact, we Deplorables have had enough and I believe if push came to shove, there would be an overwhelming show of support for the President. Never underestimate the power of righteous indignation. As it becomes more clear that the powers that be are willing to nullify our sacred right to vote for the candidate of our choice, patriots all over this great country are ready to stand and support this President whatever that entails. We have had enough.

#2, please note nearly all assassinations and assassination attempts in this country since Lincoln have been by leftists (or nut jobs). It is hard to tell the difference.

Do not think for a minute they would not use firearms to kill you. They will use any means to get to their utopia. The only good thing is they are lousy shots.

Democrats have always been closet socialists. The difference now is that they feel they are close enough to seizing complete power that they can come out of the closet and go full communist. That is exactly why the surprise election of Trump sent them into such a frenzy. They had everything in their grasp...the media, the universities, the FBI/DOJ/CIA, and much of the court system...and needing only the presidency to finish the job.

And then along came Trump. The fact he has been able to outsmart their every illegal effort to oust him only further enrages them.

Since the cowardly Republicans are quietly complicit in the Democrats´efforts, it´s absolutely critical that we the people support him and loudly continue to voice our support. It is no exaggeration to say that President Trump is the only thing keeping this country from a full communist takeover. Those of us who have actually escaped from communist countries know what we are talking about. Those midnight raids by the FBI are frightening reminders of the hell we left.

At the risk of sounding as crazy as the loony left, maybe a good violent confrontation is what we need to silence them. They are loud and incessant but their numbers are exaggerated by the media. We are not legally permitted to shoot them now unless they try to enter our homes but if they try to attack an entire community with firearms they will be met with extreme resistance in most areas of this country. Real Americans are very tolerant and forgiving but this riff raff has gone far enough. We will not let them remove this president, whatever it takes to stop them. The law no longer has the clout and respect that it once did. Go ahead, make our day.

I don´t fear the leftist jerk weeds.
The cowards even if armed (which I doubt because they hate guns) will remain in their safe havens of liberal cities and university campuses. I don´t believe there would be a large armed push into the ´country side´ like the French Resistance of WWII. A liberal in my hometown might verbally attack but to physically attack someone knowing that they might be shot by a legally armed citizen. The left will continue with vulgarities, pink hats and clever signs but know they will all meet their demise in an armed conflict and the cowards on the left will remain in ´safe spaces´.

The socialists have a segment of support willing to be violent. This has been well demonstrated by the Antifa mob that shows up with bats and riot gear every time two "white supremacist" wack jobs get a permit to have a picnic on the village green.

They are also willing to unleash the violence embodied in the ATF, FBI, as well as other recently armed agencies of the government.

Look at Waco and Katrina. And don´t doubt Obama´s success at reconfiguring the armed forces leadership. That said, I still think that right now, if it became open rebellion, much of the military will stand for the constitution supporters.

Take the government entities out of the equation and stack up the violent left against the rest of us and we´ll erase them easily. That´s because good common nonviolent armed people will resort to violence to save the country.

"The beginning of a revolution is in reality the end of a belief."---
Gustave Le Bon

This has been in the works for quite some time as the belief in our founding and the values that it represented have been under attack. I am of the belief that this has been the execution of a deliberate plan executed by American communists, not simply some natural evolutionary process called progress.

Is it just me or is VDH getting a bit edgier?

In the aftermath of such miscalculation by leftists, no registered demoncrat or descendant for 12 generations should be allowed to vote, hold any office, teach at any level, be in the media in any way or form, al all possessions beyond poverty level be confiscated, unless they elect to self-exile and then just 4 times poverty level.

FTA:We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth. The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary.

VDH, I think we´ve gone well past "entering" because there are only eleven (I still think the real number is two) out of 535 in Congress who are NOT among the ranks of the revolutionaries, with the GOP aiding and abetting by doing nothing or worse, actively and openly helping to illegally remove Trump from office. Let´s not forget the men in black, one of whom just ignored separation of powers usurping the executive branch upon himself to dictate exactly what the executive branch will do. The judge, who should be impeached immediately by the Congress, will instead be able to use his own treasonous acts as a means of getting Trump impeached should the Marxists take over in 2018, 2020 or 2022. That in and of itself indicates we´re WAY beyond mere "entering." We´re well past the black hole´s event horizon.

"As the Resistance goes from one ploy to the next, it ignores its string of failed prior efforts"

This could be the definition of liberalism. It has and is destroying countries yet supporters keep returning to it insisting NEXT TIME it will work. Critics point out that it´s fatal flaws will prevent it from EVER working but the liberals blissfully carry on.

"Now the FBI is reduced to raiding Trump’s lawyer in an effort to root out the real story on Stormy Daniels"

Can you imagine what would have happened if the FBI raided Monica Lewinsky´s house to search for her blue dress?

"they have discredited the very notion of a Washington intelligence elite"

Government intelligence, an oxymoron.

"writers have long ago run out of superlatives"

You have to wonder, once you walk around with pink P**** hats, how much further can you devolve?

"it is all getting scary"

It is nearing the time that patriots may find it necessary to stand up outside the "safe" channels of government to refresh our republic and our freedoms.

When it comes right down to it, Democrats/liberals/rinos want our taxpayer money so they can spend it on what they want or who they want. They don´t want any resistance from conservatives or true Republicans. They want to define everything and it will be loosely defined so that no structure will be in place. As a result, chaos and confusion will result.

Throw in some guilt like this whole "reparation" tactic and we will be made to feel like we owe it to them. What is astounding to me is that some conservatives and Republicans HAVE started feeling guilty. Do they forget that some of these very things were the foundation of the Democrat party?

Revolution? I have no idea but I hope tax-paying people start waking up.

VDH isn´t the only one who sees danger ahead. Every social gathering Wifey & I attend eventually turns to discussion of ´what next´ and ´are we ready?´ These aren´t crazy white militias, but people with their ears to the ground watching what´s happening.

Our professional law enforcement will be overwhelmed if rioting and mass shootings take place simultaneously in our cities. Even the politically agnostic will fuel the fires to get sneakers and TV sets.

Indeed, the quote from VDH´s article cited by #6, puts it out there. It´s hard to believe that even a political ideology such as liberalism is willing to take down what once was a civil society.

Yes. Enough. We need to go on with or without the left. Let´s get to work and protect ourselves, the country and the President.

When one watches these people, its obvious they have no respect for the rule of law. They are already resorting to violence. Look at them, and realize they are different groups all demanding preferential treatment without regard to anyone else. They really need to grow up, but they never will. They are already adults. Its like a form of arrested development.

As I recall, VDH was, in the beginning, anti-Trump. I guess one could say that he has "evolved" and is now much more reasonable.

Such a shame that he cannot convince his fellow writers to "evolve". The ones who are part of the Conservative cocktail parties, cruises, etc. The very ones who continue to be so virulent in their opposition to the duly elected potus.

A change of heart, or intelligence, could well sway the winning side in the upcoming battle.

We have only just begun to save our country (and the world) from the clutches of those who live in darkness. Our beloved America is worth every ounce of strength and courage to save and protect. Since the primary and general election of our president we have been steeled for what is to come. Imho, the Left is in a narcissistic rage-how dare we confront them!

Buck up, everyone and keep your mental toughness at a fever pitch. We (and our president who is sacrificing so much and fighting for our country every day) have much work to do. More than we ever thought possible, the literal survival of our country depends on it. And she depends on our toughness to see this long and arduous battle to victory.

Yes, very true, and this is why gun sales have been setting records for more than a decade, as have ammo sales. People see more and more screaming, hysterical mobs calling for anarchy, and in the case of the ´antifa´ thugs, replaying brownshirt violence from the 30s Germany and Italy.
I sincerely hope we can avoid large scale violence, but if the left starts violence, there are many who will work to stop it quickly. Many have stocked up on liberty teeth, and are ready to bite back if they bite us.

I hope sanity prevails, but I see very little sanity on the other side these days, mostly unhinged hysterics, screaming, spittle flying and threatening violence.

Us Ever since the end of WW II there has been a "misquoted quote" by a Japanese Admiral admonishing potential invaders about a "rifle behind every blade of grass".

Discounting the argument about who said what, the fact expressed was/ is absolutely correct, then and NOW! If/when the wimps, snowflakes, and PW warriors decide to use weapons to gain their objective, the truth of this age old saying will become obvious very quickly! (Hence the record breaking sign up and donations to the NRA)

An interesting bit of BTW trivia: As a young man I hunted the big Bobwhite Quail alongside a carpenter who was half Native American and the most accurate marksman I have ever seen. We hunted on uninhabited government acquired land, soon to be flooded by a flood control dam, and he could bring down a quail with a .22 cal. rifle. He would laugh off his amazing feat by saying he "didn´t like his Cornish hen full of lead shot -- lead was poisonous". He was as good as Herb Parsons and others of those days who put on shooting exhibitions for Winchester and Remington Arms Cos.

If the aforementioned PW warriors ever decide to start a shooting confrontation, they best be sure their will is up to date, as they won´t last any longer then those quail did many years ago.

The evil will continue to urge mental defectives to cause chaos. They will continue to blackmail and compromise key political figures. They will continue to press every traditional American institution to the far left. All these things and more are what they live for every minute of every day. They are truly awful, deranged, egomaniac monsters.

After 8 years of bho doing whatever he wanted and more than anyone could imagine, they slipped up and got overconfident about the usual voting fraud. They won´t allow that to happen again. Unless the next election is overwhelming in votes for President Trump, they will simply steal it. They have done it many times on the national stage with whatever oversight there is and NO one stops them. Even when the cheating is blatant. The average TV educated voter better get up to speed on exactly what is at stake or we will be crushed. When the left moves they will make sure they have the might of the US government and the weight of law behind them. No matter how perverted the law is. The worst enemy I could ever imagine in my life is right here, right now and they are fellow Americans. Traitors, each and every one with help from foreign enemies, ready to destroy the country that gave them everything.

The other day in New York City, the Democrats filed a lawsuit against Trump, the Russians and Wikileaks claiming that they stole the election from Hillary Clinton and the Democrats. Nobody knows yet, what judge shopping the Democrats did before they decided to file it in New York City a liberal Democrat run place.

Right now there is nothing to keep whatever judge who takes up that case from issuing a nationwide injunction against how the election results were derived and Trump, until the judge holds a lengthy trial and decides who actually won the election. Liberal Democrat activist judges have been issuing a number of nationwide injunctions against Trump since he assumed office, to delay or stop presidential action until those lawsuits make it through the federal court system which could take years. Remember so far the Supreme Court has allowed those nationwide injunctions by District Judges to remain in place.

In the case at hand once such an injunction is issued against the election and Trump, the Democrats would certainly demand that Trump be moved out of the White House and that the judge then appoint some experienced and honest Democrat politician, like Hillary Clinton, to act as judicially appointed President until Trump proves that he did not steal the election, as the lawsuit makes its way through the federal court system.

If that were to occur, this author’s prediction of revolution and worse to come across the USA could happen. Just saying.

This is happening because the US doesn´t have a two party system. The entire political class favors the D agenda and has for decades: open borders, extreme globalism, endless foreign wars, massive free trade ensuring constant downward pressure on US wages. Trump´s 63 million voters still don´t have a political party behind them and never will. No one wants them. Once elected, the US political class is devoted to everyone outside the US.

On December 29, 2016, the Obama Administration – with three weeks remaining in its term – issued harsh sanctions against Russia over supposed election interference. Two compounds in the United States were closed and 35 Russian diplomats were ordered to leave the country. Russia responded by calling the actions “Cold War déjà vu.” In the two years that have elapsed since, it has been learned that the “intelligence” that formed the basis for the sanctions was beyond dubious. A single unverified “dossier” compiled by an ex-British spy with no discernable connections to Russia was shopped to FISA judges and the media as something

Israel never should have left Gaza the way that Ariel Sharon abruptly and foolishly did. He was too full of himself — in more ways than one — and became persuaded by hubris that he alone had the vision. Certainly no one in Israel seriously wanted Gaza, but Ehud Barak already had shown how myopic it would be to walk away unilaterally from a border region when he handed Southern Lebanon effectively to Hezbollah. So, to prove Einstein’s meme about insanity, Sharon did the exact same idiotic thing, and he left Israel with a royal mess on both sides. (Ehud Olmert,

The two men, graduates of Yale University, were rookie reporters at The Baltimore News when they drew up a prospectus for something called a “news magazine.” After raising $86,000, Mr. Hadden and Mr. Luce quit their jobs.

After year of investigation, Trump

It was called “Crossfire Hurricane,” the FBI counterintelligence operation that targeted Trump figures as part of the investigation into possible campaign ties to Russia. It was a poignant choice of a Rolling Stones song, “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” that describes a man “born in a crossfire hurricane” who “howled at the morning driving rain.” It could be an apt description of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. After a year of media denials of his claims of surveillance targeting his campaign, Trump can legitimately claim some vindication. Indeed, with his rising poll numbers, the president must feel, in the words of the song,

Breaking News: President Trump is a patient man. That may sound shocking, but consider the evidence. Nearly 15 months have passed since Trump dropped a bomb on law enforcement and the intelligence agencies. Early in the morning of March 4, 2017, he tweeted, “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is ­McCarthyism!” He was immediately denounced as a crackpot paranoid and the media Praetorian Guard defenders of Barack Obama demanded that Trump apologize to their Dear Leader. No apology was forthcoming, ­although the White House suggested the quotation marks around

The American media gave sympathetic coverage this past week to the terrorist group Hamas, the gang bangers of MS-13 and a porn star – while continuing relentless attacks on the president of the United States. And you thought “journalism” couldn’t get any worse. The week began with another signature achievement for President Trump – the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. Relocating the embassy from Tel Avis was a promise that dated back to the 1992 presidential campaign of Bill Clinton. Clinton went on to ignore the promise, as did both Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama after

Maybe it’s a matter of timing. Maybe I’m not giving this a fair shake. But whenever I happen to tune in to CNN, there’s a panel of talking heads discussing President Trump and the porn star. Or President Trump and the Mueller investigation. Or President Trump and whether he’ll be impeached. Or President Trump and Jerusalem. Or President Trump and Saudi Arabia. Or President Trump and Iran. Or President Trump and North Korea. Or President Trump and the American economy. Or President Trump and pro-life legislation.

Colluding, like canoodling, is all the rage. Robert Mueller, like a dog chasing his tail, has been trying for more than a year to find evidence that President Trump colluded with Vladimir Putin and the Russians to cook the 2016 election, which fate, providence, fortune and destiny decreed properly belonged to Hillary Clinton. So far as anyone beyond his circle of thousand-dollar-an-hour lawyers know, Mr. Mueller has not come up with anything more than a few indictments of second- and third-tier aides, helpers, hangers-on, and lawyers that a nice girl would not take home to meet the folks. Now The New York Times reports that the

The move of the United States embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and the American withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal have been the subjects of an immense volume of nonsensical comment and hand-wringing. The idea that it is anyone’s business apart from Israel and the United States where the embassy is located within uncontested Israeli territory is based on the theory that there is some question over whether Israel is going to retain even the section of Jerusalem that it held prior to the 1967 Six Day War, launched and lost by the Arab powers, and the end of which has been formalized between Israel and both Egypt and Jordan.

President Donald Trump tweets today: “Reports are there was indeed at least one FBI representative implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign for president. It took place very early on, and long before the phony Russia Hoax became a ‘hot’ Fake News story. If true - all time biggest political scandal!” And what does the man who was serving at the time as the FBI’s ultimate boss have to say about all this? Perhaps it’s a good moment to get the whole story from our 44th President. He should now have time to discuss his administration’s surveillance of affiliates of a presidential campaign because he has just prevailed in a

Jeff Sessions ends Obama-era ‘de facto’
court amnesty for illegal immigrants

Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a directive to immigration judges Thursday telling them they can no longer shunt deportation cases off onto permanent wait lists and leave illegal immigrants free to roam the U.S. Known as administrative closure, the wait list had become a favorite tactic of the Obama administration, serving to protect low-priority illegal immigrants from deportation. Rather than pursue those cases, government attorneys would propose — and judges would grant — administrative closure by shipping more than 200,000 cases to the suspension list in what analysts said became a de facto amnesty.

Deep in the New York Times’s account of “Crossfire Hurricane,” the FBI’s codename for spying on the Trump campaign, is a hilariously bland paragraph about John Brennan and James Comey teaming up to dig dirt on Trumpworld. If you blinked in the course of reading the lengthy article, you might have missed it: The F.B.I.’s thinking crystallized by mid-August, after the C.I.A. director at the time, John O. Brennan, shared intelligence with Mr. Comey showing that the Russian government was behind an attack on the 2016 presidential election. Intelligence agencies began collaborating to investigate that operation.

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

The man who is sixth in line to be king of Great Britain is getting married today and America has lost its mind. What does it mean to be sixth in the line of royal succession to an office that depends solely and exclusively on who your father is? It means that five family members have to die before you get the real goodies. Granted, those goodies are amazing. Who wouldn´t want to live in a thousand year old castle (too bad it´s in Scotland) or have dozens of "servants" cater to your every whim and need? But that lifestyle depends on people believing that you are deserving of such wealth and privilege because you happened to be

The civil war between the Fox News Channel news and opinion sides appears to be hardening with chief political anchor Bret Baier having joined the fray. On Thursday May 17, Baier, a 20-year high-profile veteran of Fox News, entered the lion’s den – one of the hearts of the anti-Trump Resistance – when he went on the ABC Television Network daytime women’s chat show The View. His guest shot in “enemy territory” was a prominent stop on the media tour to promote his new book on Reagan and Gorbachev, Three Days in Moscow.

Boston — Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked. More than 700 students and guests are registered to attend Harvard´s first Black Commencement, which will take place two days before the school´s traditional graduation events. (Snip) Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university´s graduation. Students have raised $35,000 for the event, mostly from schools within the university.

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the

"It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members of Congress to use their positions to learn the identity of an FBI source for the purpose of undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our election," Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement.

Former President Jimmy Carter jabbed President Trump during his commencement speech at Liberty University in Virginia on Saturday, joking about the crowd size at the event. Carter pointed out that the crowd size at the commencement was bigger this year than when Trump spoke to Liberty graduates in 2017, the Associated Press reported. “I don’t know if President Trump would admit that," Carter said, referring to the Trump’s claim, which was widely determined to be false, that his inauguration crowd exceeded 1 million people. Carter wasn´t the only one to bring up the Trump inauguration crowd size Saturday. The Twitter

WINDSOR, England – Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s big day has come, and the sun is shining outside of St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle where early guests arrived about four hours before the royal wedding is set to begin. Many of the first guests to arrive were part of the approximately 1,200 members of the public that Markle and Prince Harry invited to witness their wedding, some of whom were invited due to their involvement in specific charities that are meaningful to the couple. Those guests will watch the wedding from a designated area outside of the castle, while
