Trump Turns the Corner and Goes On the Attack. Will He Make the GOP Follow?

Donald Trump received a hero’s welcome in Poland on Wednesday, with a crowd of thousands chanting both his name and the name of our country [Trump Interrupted 6 Times in Poland With a Chant You Might Have Thought Would Only Be Heard in the USA, by Jason Howerton, Independent Journal Review, July 6, 2017]. Critically, the president identified border security as one of the most important issues during his speech, declaring that the will to enforce immigration laws is synonymous with the will to defend Western Civilization. Not surprisingly, the hysterically and openly anti-white, anti-Trump Main Stream Media screamed that the president had delivered an “Alt Right manifesto”. [Trump’s speech in Poland sounded like an alt-right manifesto, by Sarah Wildman, Vox, July 6, 2017]

Nothing of the sort of course: Trump merely delivered the kinds of patriotic platitudes which every other generation in history would have taken for granted. However, with many Western nations under de facto occupation by a hostile elite, such common sense comments are revolutionary. More importantly, President Trump finally seems to be going on the attack in the last week, championing the kinds of populist policies which put him in office.

The House Republicans finally seem to be taking some action on the immigration issue, recently passing both Kate’s Law and the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act. The former increases penalties on criminal aliens who attempt to reenter our country and latter cuts funding to cities which refuse to imply with federal immigration laws. Two dozen House Democrats voted for “Kate’s Law” and Senate Democrats in red states, a number of whom are facing re-election in 2018, will be under pressure to support the legislation in the Senate. [‘Kate’s Law’ battle shifts to the Senate, testing Dems, by Jordain Carney and Rafael Bernal, The Hill, July 3, 2017]

The increasing willingness of the President’s team to seek the advice of Senator Tom Cotton, who seems to have succeeded Jeff Sessions as the greatest immigration patriot in the upper chamber, is also an encouraging sign [As Trump’s Coach, Senator Cotton Provides Policy to Match Rhetoric, by Maggie Haberman and Matt Flegenheimer, New York Times, June 8, 2017]. Most importantly, Trump himself is taking the strategic offensive, championing his success on these issues. [‘These deaths were preventable’: Trump urges Senate to pass ‘Kate’s Law,’ Fox Insider, July 1, 2017]

Of course, the real question is what the Republican Senate Leadership will do. Everything depends on whether Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is willing to put the bills up for a vote and pressure the caucus to vote for them. [Immigration bills face Senate hurdle, by Bill Lambrecht, San Antonio Express-News, July 5, 2017]

And here, again, it’s really not even about McConnell but about Trump’s own will. While Trump’s fight with the MSM is amusing and important, ultimately, he needs to put pressure on the leaders of his own party. The battles with CNN and Mika Brzezinski risks distracting from the real policy accomplishments the president poised to secure in the coming weeks [Trump’s ‘face-lift’ tweet overshadows week to push immigration, energy policies, by Alex Pappas, Washington Examiner, June 30, 2017]. As leader of the party, he can set the priority and challenge McConnell to put his weight behind the immigration bills.

If Trump indeed has the “will” to go through with it, there are the faint outlines how to achieve the political realignment necessary for the United States of America to survive in any meaningful sense. For the first time in many years, there are real splits on the intellectual Left on immigration.

Peter Beinart recently admitted in The Atlantic, “A decade ago, liberals publicly questioned immigration in ways that would shock many progressives today,” citing the legacy of Barbara Jordan among others. While Beinart is far from a born-again immigration patriot, he admitted restrictionists have valid concerns that progressives should heed:

Liberals must take seriously Americans’ yearning for social cohesion. To promote both mass immigration and greater economic redistribution, they must convince more native-born white Americans that immigrants will not weaken the bonds of national identity. This means dusting off a concept many on the left currently hate: assimilation.

[How The Democrats Lost Their Way On Immigration, July/August 2017]

Of course, Leftist Enforcer Dylan Matthews, [Email him] whose entire oeuvre can be summarized as a hysterical insistence on the moral necessity of white genocide, blasted Beinart on the grounds that Open Borders is what defines the West. “Beinart doesn’t actually seem to care about promoting mass immigration,” Matthews sneers. “And that’s the one answer to this dilemma that’s completely unacceptable”. [What’s the point of an anti-immigrant left, Vox, July 2, 2017]

To whom?

Matthews decrees:

[A]ny center-left party worth its salt has to be deeply committed to egalitarianism, not just for people born in the US but for everyone…it… means treating people born outside the US as equals.

But of course, this renders American citizenship essentially pointless. Indeed being an “American” (which would simply mean owning a certain kind of passport) would be an active disadvantage, as you would simply exist to be tax-farmed for the benefit of an ever growing number of hostile and hapless Third Worlders.

Few Americans would sign up for this. So, as even Rich Lowry [Email him] now admits, Donald Trump is “winning” on immigration simply by mentioning the issue and breaking apart the Democratic coalition.

Trump probably wouldn’t have won without running so directly into the teeth of the elite consensus. According to a study published by Public Religion Research Institute and the Atlantic of white working-class voters, it was anxiety about culture change and support for deporting undocumented immigrants that correlated with voting for Trump, not loss of economic or social standing. Likewise, a Democracy Fund Voter Study Group report found Hillary Clinton cratered among populist voters who had supported Barack Obama, with the issue of immigration looming large.[Links added by VDARE.com]

[Trump is winning the immigration debate, July 5, 2017]

(If only National Review had had an editor who could have told them about this before demographic change had become such a threat to conservatism and to the country…)

Though Trump has turned a corner and is on the attack, it’s still an open question whether he will have a successful presidency [‘Your worst nightmare: a successful Donald Trump presidency, by David Smith, The Guardian, July 3, 2017]. Trump’s approval ratings are still low, hovering around 40 percent. More importantly, he is still mired in the pointless battle over the GOP’s idiotic health care replacement bill, which is so poorly constructed partially because the GOP leadership apparently took it for granted Trump was going to lose the presidential election. [One reason the GOP health bill is a mess: No one thought Trump would win, by Paul Kane, Washington Post, July 6, 2017]

There has also been no action on some issues which would be easy political victories for the president—including on establishing English as the official language of the United States. [Only three Georgia U.S. House members sign on to help official English legislation in Washington D.C., by D.A. King, The Telegraph, June 12, 2017]

Yet President Trump now has an edge in his war with the MSM. Americans are disgusted by the willingness of CNN to essentially blackmail a private citizen. The House Republicans have proven they will go along with a Trump immigration agenda, provided the president leads the way. And Left’s squabbling over immigration shows a new nationalism has the potential permanently to split apart the Democrats.

The potential for victory is there. If, to use President Trump’s own words in Warsaw, he has the will to win.

    What I like about Mr. Woodley’s talk, is that he points out that “clever sillies” can be found on the left side of the political spectrum, as well as on the right side of the political spectrum. He points specifically to certain libertarians displaying high levels of “clever silliness.”

    I always felt this way about the infamous, multi-billionaire, libertarian Koch Brothers, for example, who I think are highly intelligent, but whom I consider to be a menace to society (see video titled “Bernie Sanders: “Open borders?

    In my opinion, even more important than to attack the hostile, mostly liberal media is for Trump to distance himself not just form the Neocon wing of the Republican party, but also to keep a healthy distance from and even attack Ayn Rand fanboys like Paul Ryan and other lackeys of the Koch Brothers:

    ..."

    As I've been telling you people for a while now we already have a name for this. It's called psychopaths. The Jews are a tribe of psychopaths. Certainly not all but a great deal and their kin that are not refuse to do anything about it as they see themselves enriched at the expense of the Whites in this nation.

    You may quibble with my notions but the long term effects of Jews on any society where they reside long enough and in sufficient numbers has the same effect as if it were invaded by a tribe of psychopaths. Even if the Jews aren't a tribe of psychopaths there seems to be no difference and if you assume they are then a great deal of what goes on in society starts to make sense.

    Even if it's wrong, if you assume the Jews are a tribe of psychopaths you will never be surprised and the Jew's behavior will make sense.

    It's dead simple how they do what they do and it follows exactly the same play book that psychopaths play. They say they are abused by whomever the last victim was, gain your trust then take control of your life. For individuals they take control of the finances and then isolate you from family and others.

    In a countries case they take control of the banks and the media. Here's what's going on in our country and EXACTLY how they control us and stay in power.

    1. They control the FED which can make money out of nothing. This gives them the power to preferentially give money to their kin and supporters.
    2. With this money they bought the media and probably most of our industry. Remember the junk bond buy outs in the 1980's? They are able to harness huge sums of capital channeled into their friends pockets which they use to purchase our industries built up over decades and decades. All they did was sign papers for these, over stress the workers, steal their pensions and then move the businesses to China. Now they own them. Remember the bank bail outs? What do you think all this money was used for? It wasn't to bail out housing. I bet they bought the whole entire economy with this money. We're talking possibly as much as $30 Trillion. A limited audit years ago counted $16 Trillion.
    3. Once you have this much money then you can bribe Congress to get more or do whatever else you want.
    4. If the Congressman won't play then during the primaries in their State a well funded opponent pops up and the press savages you beyond repair.
    5. If that doesn't work then they redistrict you.
    6. If that doesn't work then well, remember Ohio Rep. James Traficant that somehow got in front of his own tractor and ran over himself?
    7. The parallel track is they have is they have video of you with underage kids having sex. Epstein?

    That's most of their whole play book there.

    Interesting article from antiwar.com:

    Russophobia Hits the Libertarian Movement
    http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2017/07/09/russophobia-hits-libertarian-movement/

    Isn’t it odd that Reason opposes economic sanctions on Communist Cuba, but wants them slapped on Russia – which is just emerging from 70-some years of its Marxist nightmare? Perhaps one explanation is that the magazine is funded in large part by oil oligarch Charles Koch, of Koch Industries, who stands to make billions if Russian energy exports are blocked by government action.

    While ascribing this motivation to the editors of Reason may seem uncharitable, it is the least uncharitable explanation for publishing Young’s farrago of falsehood, innuendo, and neo-McCarthyite rubbish. Far worse would be an ideological motivation: that they actually believe the pathetic conspiracy theory Young cobbles together out of the imaginings of various professional Russophobes.

    While distancing herself from the “more extreme” anti-Russian narratives, which she admits are conspiracy theories with little evidence to support them, Young weaves a “moderate” conspiracy theory of her own – with just as little evidence to support it.

     

    The following is exactly my position, too. I am by no means a fan of Vladimir Putin and the Russian elites, but it is my hope to find some common ground with the Russians on certain issues where and when possible:


    Opponents of a new cold war with Russia are neither pro-Russian nor fans of Vladimir Putin. They are simply advocates of a common sense approach to Russia, and to US foreign policy in general, which holds that America’s real interests lie in cooperation with the world’s largest nation insofar as that is possible.

    If you oppose Cold War II, you are siding with Russia – this is the assumption at the heart of Young’s argument, and it is, simply put, a primitive lie.
     
    P.s.: I noticed that the feature which indicates that new comments have been posted on articles seems to have been disabled. Has anyone else noticed this?

We were told that Gaddafi ripped off the nation’s oil wealth for himself when in reality Libya’s oil wealth was used to improve the quality of life for all Libyans. We were told that Libya had to be rebuilt from scratch because Gaddafi had not allowed the development of national institutions. If we knew that infant mortality had been seriously reduced, life expectancy increased and health care and education made available to everyone, we might have asked, “How could all that be accomplished without the existence of national institutions?” Knowledge is the antidote to propaganda and brainwashing which is exactly why it is being increasingly controlled and restricted.”

  10. Vice President Pence is quoted by the Guardian as saying that the Trump regime plans to put “American boots on the face of Mars”.

    This has remarkable echoes of George Orwell’s famous line: “If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.”

    What was Pence thinking? Attacking Mars! Firstly Mars does not have a face, it is the Old Man in the Moon who has a face. Secondly, probably most of us are all for making America great again, but is this really going to be done by putting boots on faces? Why not put American feet on the surface of Mars and prepare to shake hands with Martians, our fellow inhabitants of the solar system.

    As far as the Republican health plan, which is turning out to be a bloody abortion, whatever happened to the plan that Trump was promising both before and after his election that would cover everyone beautifully, reduce premiums, and lower deductibles?

    Just saying that Trump did not expect to be elected, and then once elected, still did not really believe that he had been elected, is ridiculous. Whatever happened to healthcare think tanks, consultancy firms and academic experts? The GOP, not liking certain aspects of Obamacare, has had years to study how to make the American system of financing health care for people who do not get it through their job or through Medicare or the VA the best in the world.

    Second, there might be oil there. If there is, then clearly it's vital for US national security to have control of it and to be able both to keep the profits and to use it as a weapon against potential rivals. Obviously.

    Finally did you even consider the potential for an unacceptable potential threat to Israel on Mars if it is not safely under US control?

    Vice President Pence is quoted by the Guardian as saying that the Trump regime plans to put "American boots on the face of Mars".

    This has remarkable echoes of George Orwell's famous line: "If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever."

    What was Pence thinking? Attacking Mars! Firstly Mars does not have a face, it is the Old Man in the Moon who has a face. Secondly, probably most of us are all for making America great again, but is this really going to be done by putting boots on faces? Why not put American feet on the surface of Mars and prepare to shake hands with Martians, our fellow inhabitants of the solar system.

    As far as the Republican health plan, which is turning out to be a bloody abortion, whatever happened to the plan that Trump was promising both before and after his election that would cover everyone beautifully, reduce premiums, and lower deductibles?

    Just saying that Trump did not expect to be elected, and then once elected, still did not really believe that he had been elected, is ridiculous. Whatever happened to healthcare think tanks, consultancy firms and academic experts? The GOP, not liking certain aspects of Obamacare, has had years to study how to make the American system of financing health care for people who do not get it through their job or through Medicare or the VA the best in the world.

    Now we have a right to expect them to damn well do what they were elected to do.

  17. Critically, the president identified border security as one of the most important issues during his speech, declaring that the will to enforce immigration laws is synonymous with the will to defend Western Civilization.

    IMO, Trump’s deeds rarely match the words written for him by his speechwriter(s). There’s been little progress on our Southern border wall and his administration only marginally decreased refugees to 50K for 2018. I want zero or only white refugees from S. Africa – not racial, cultural and religious aliens from the third world.

    The increasing willingness of the President’s team to seek the advice of Senator Tom Cotton, who seems to have succeeded Jeff Sessions as the greatest immigration patriot in the upper chamber,

    Cotton has a proposed immigration bill that reduces legal immigration from 1.1 million to 700K. It also takes aim at some chain migration mechanisms which is a positive step, but overall immigration still overwhelmingly favors the third world. Some “immigration patriot”.

    Even if this miraculously passes this does nothing to arrest the pro-third world demographic trends that ensures white go from majority to plurality by 2040 and America is still on a path to become Brazil Norte.

    The House Republicans have proven they will go along with a Trump immigration agenda, provided the president leads the way.

    That remains to be seen as Trump has drifted towards the center on immigration since his inauguration. He kept DACA in place and hasn’t uttered one negative word on the presumption of birthright citizenship or implored Congress to pass legislation clarifying that the 14th amendment only applied to descendants of blacks slaves and not every person who sneaks across the border and drops an anchor baby or two or eight. The same applies to visa holders and “maternity tourists”.

The so-called left are the dancing partners who play their part in this fraud – put up targets so the other team can shoot at them, that isn’t left, and that isn’t right.

    There is no real opposition to Trump. He’s a walking clown, pay attention if you must. But the mainstream media includes Kirkpatrick as much as it does The Atlantic and Vox and Fox and CNN. Super national corporations delivering control over your lives. When they tell you who, what and when you should foam at mouth you’ll obey – ‘those damn other guys!’

    Not true, Jonathan. "Face" is a term from way back in observational astronomy. What you see in the telescope is the "face" of the moon, the "face" of Mars, etc.

    I don't expect too many people still recognize the expression, and that's including Pence - he probably knows dick-all about astronomy or space exploration, but someone told him to say that.

    Politicians are not bright; they are just good at recognizing faces, haha, of people, not planets, so they can make you feel that they remember all about you from 2 years back to make you feel like they REALLY CARE! They are really good at this until they get to a high level, at which point whatever they say is just based on what they were told to say by the people that have the pictures of them snorting coke/ molesting children / running drug operations, etc.

    A decade ago was 2007 and liberals were madly extolling non White immigration of everything from doctors to dishwashers.

    I think the last liberal to have reservations about immigration was Cesear Chavez who claimed illegal immigrant farm workers drove wages down for American farm workers. When was that? 50 years ago?
    Barbara Jordan made that speech just once when she was in congress sometime in the 1970s. The Democratic Party swiftly shut her up and found another candidate for her seat.

    She disappeared after she left congress. She died about 20 years ago.

    This is 2017. Liberals have been extreme advocates for affirmative action for legal and illegal non White immigration for 50 years.

    The crash of the Polish aircraft with nearly the whole Polish establishment on board on its way to Katyn still is blamed on Russia, while it was Polish stupidity, and too much liquor.
    So maybe this was a spontaneous crowd.

    Proof it was alcohol and stupidity that caused the crash?

    Dreher: Let that sink in: the Washington Post blames right-wing talk radio for a left-winger’s assassination attempt on Republican politicians.

    Nothing new here. The Glob controls the media narrative, and they will always spin it to blame the ‘right’ no matter what happens.

    It’s like Marxist Oswald killed Kennedy(based on evidence so far), but the media blamed Dallas as ‘city of hate’.

    It’s like blacks go around attacking and killing, but media promoted BLM as ‘civil rights’ struggle. Of course, proggy urbanites who increased police power to deal with black crime were trying to shift all the blame on the ‘pigs’. “We libby-dibs love blacks.. it’s those ‘racist’ cops who are to blame.”

    It’s like homos spread AIDS by mega-buggery in the 80s, but the Media Narrative blame it all on “Reagan’s Indifference.”

    And the US has been provoking Russia, but Russia is the aggressor.

    Not only does the Glob have monopoly control over the media but it also controls the New Official Faith of PC.
    So, if you want to feel self-righteous and sanctimonious, the thing is to scream about ‘racism’, ‘homophobia’, and antisemitism’. Such piousness has the blessing of the Powers That Be in Media, Academia, Government, Courts, Law Firms, Hollywood, Deep State, and etc.

    Progs are so addicted to self-righteous supermacism that, regardless of what happens, the ‘bad guys’ are always the ‘right’, and the ‘good guys’ are always whatever happens to be the ‘new left’.

    Scalise shooting is especially odd because the shooter looks like a red-blooded American. Scalise was for the interests of exactly that kind of demographic.

  29. Trump seems somewhat like FDR:

    The speeches were wholly different, different in their approach and their philosophy. Moley showed both drafts to Roosevelt. Roosevelt read them over, handed them back to Moley and said: ‘Weave the two together”—no comment on the economic contents, no opinions on the contradictory views or which one should prevail, just “weave the two together.”
    - Country Squire in the White House, by John T. Flynn

    FDR’s actions, though foolish, had the full support of Washington. Thus his actions had effect in reality.

    Trump is finding that his actions are routinely blunted, slow-footed, filed in a drawer, etc. Trump already has shown the disastrous Nixon habit of trading domestic policy priorities for foreign policy priorities. Domestic policies are the only ones that matter.

    Trump will have the choice of recognizing reality (that his actions are not taking effect) or not (bluster).

    If Jeff Flake does not vote for the Wall, will Trump support a primary challenger, e.g. Jan Brewer?

    If Congress does not fund the wall, will Trump command the Army Corps of Engineers to build it anyway?

    If Congress does not restrict immigration, will Trump give up and satisfy himself with enforcement (action that can be reversed by the next President)?

    This is some additional interesting research:

    Another, surprising, trend in the data may also warrant further investigation. While the trend seen in the atheist/agnostic/no reli- gion groups not only offers tangential support to the primary hypothesis (i.e., GFP differences are not simply an artifact of differ- ences in intelligence), it is also interesting in and of itself. The athe- ist/agnostic/no religion groups exhibited high levels of intelligence, but low GFP scores. Thus, it appears that while atheists and agnos- tics are intelligent, they are less socially effective. Is this social inef- fectiveness born out of being intellectually incongruent with others? What form does the social ineffectiveness take; abrasive- ness, passivity? The GFP and GFP-intelligence relationship in athe- ists and agnostics could be a fruitful topic for future research.
     
    - A comparative study of the general factor of personality in Jewish and non-Jewish populations Dunkel et al. (2015) http://midus.wisc.edu/findings/pdfs/1488.pdf

    This topic of racial differences in inherited personality traits is gonna be the next big frontier in LoveFacts, and it will cause even more hysteria from the equalist crowd than does the topic of IQ when it becomes common knowledge that characteristics like propensity to violence, sociopathy, conscientiousness, trustworthiness, and kindness are NOT equally and randomly distributed among the world’s races of people. [...] This gene combination appears to be stunningly effective at boosting IQ test scores and presumably the material success (and possibly sexual success, at least for the males — any reader have a study I could cite here?) of the people possessing it, but it comes at a great cost to the society in which this kind of person is numerically and socially significant.

    As I’ve been telling you people for a while now we already have a name for this. It’s called psychopaths. The Jews are a tribe of psychopaths.

Even if the Jews aren’t a tribe of psychopaths there seems to be no difference and if you assume they are then a great deal of what goes on in society starts to make sense.

    Even if it’s wrong, if you assume the Jews are a tribe of psychopaths you will never be surprised and the Jew’s behavior will make sense.

    It’s dead simple how they do what they do and it follows exactly the same play book that psychopaths play. They say they are abused by whomever the last victim was, gain your trust then take control of your life. For individuals they take control of the finances and then isolate you from family and others.

    In a countries case they take control of the banks and the media. Here’s what’s going on in our country and EXACTLY how they control us and stay in power.

    1. They control the FED which can make money out of nothing. This gives them the power to preferentially give money to their kin and supporters.
    2. With this money they bought the media and probably most of our industry. Remember the junk bond buy outs in the 1980′s? They are able to harness huge sums of capital channeled into their friends pockets which they use to purchase our industries built up over decades and decades. All they did was sign papers for these, over stress the workers, steal their pensions and then move the businesses to China. Now they own them. Remember the bank bail outs? What do you think all this money was used for? It wasn’t to bail out housing. I bet they bought the whole entire economy with this money. We’re talking possibly as much as $30 Trillion. A limited audit years ago counted $16 Trillion.
    3. Once you have this much money then you can bribe Congress to get more or do whatever else you want.
    4. If the Congressman won’t play then during the primaries in their State a well funded opponent pops up and the press savages you beyond repair.
    5. If that doesn’t work then they redistrict you.
    6. If that doesn’t work then well, remember Ohio Rep. James Traficant that somehow got in front of his own tractor and ran over himself?
    7. The parallel track is they have is they have video of you with underage kids having sex. Epstein?

    That’s most of their whole play book there.

    Long-time lurker and bona-fide woke skypess here. Wow, CH, thank you for this very informative post! Can’t say I am enjoying the process of gradual awakening to my own tribe’s glaring faults, but facts are facts. It also explains so much of my family issues.

    Very depressing, indeed. All I can say is, I am sorry and embarrassed for my people’s ridiculous antics. Please be aware that there are more and more of us who are voicing our discomfort with our atrocious collective behavior. Slowly, one step at a time, we are changing minds and hearts within our communities as best we can.

    A very good example of ``Ashkepathy'', in my opinion, is Eli Roth:

    Roth was born in Newton, Massachusetts, to Dr. Sheldon Roth, a psychiatrist/psychoanalyst and clinical professor at Harvard Medical School, and Cora Roth, a painter.[2] Roth was raised Jewish (his family is from Austria, Hungary, Russia, and Poland).[3][4][5] Besides English, he speaks French, Italian and Russian.[6][7]
    [...]
    Roth hosted and executive-produced an episode of Discovery Channel's series "Curiosity", called "How Evil Are You?" The episode explored the scientific aspects of evil, with Roth undergoing a brain scan and DNA sequencing at U.C. Davis with neuropsychiatrist Dr. James Fallon. Roth also re-created the infamous Milgram experiments for the documentary, with results identical to those from 50 years earlier.

    A significant percentage of Americans need metaphors and comparisons to develop a mental / emotional picture of future possibilities so they can support them.
     
    No doubt, but "American boots on the face of Mars" does not seem to provide that. They might not be military boots, they might be cowboy boots, fisherman's boots, soccer boots, or boots designed by Ivanka Trump, but face is not really a synonym for surface, except possibly in the Old Testament.

    Anyway, on further research I see that I was wrong and that Mars DOES have a face, kind of. https://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2001/ast24may_1/ So perhaps that is what Mr. Pence was referring to, although it is rather obscure and the face is not something that can be seen from earth with the naked eye. If this is the case and the face of Mars is a kind of mesa rock formation with shadows, perhaps he was referring to rock-climbing boots.

    … but face is not really a synonym for surface, except possibly in the Old Testament.

    Not true, Jonathan. “Face” is a term from way back in observational astronomy. What you see in the telescope is the “face” of the moon, the “face” of Mars, etc.

    I don’t expect too many people still recognize the expression, and that’s including Pence – he probably knows dick-all about astronomy or space exploration, but someone told him to say that.

    Politicians are not bright; they are just good at recognizing faces, haha, of people, not planets, so they can make you feel that they remember all about you from 2 years back to make you feel like they REALLY CARE! They are really good at this until they get to a high level, at which point whatever they say is just based on what they were told to say by the people that have the pictures of them snorting coke/ molesting children / running drug operations, etc.

    We continued the discussion over in the other comment thread and I think it is relevant to this comment thread, as well:

    What I like about Mr. Woodley’s talk, is that he points out that “clever sillies” can be found on the left side of the political spectrum, as well as on the right side of the political spectrum. He points specifically to certain libertarians displaying high levels of “clever silliness.”

    I always felt this way about the infamous, multi-billionaire, libertarian Koch Brothers, for example, who I think are highly intelligent, but whom I consider to be a menace to society (see video titled “Bernie Sanders: “Open borders? That’s a Koch brothers proposal” ” in the comment about Dylan Matthews, I linked to above).

    This paper by Dutton and van der Linden (2014) might be interesting to you:

    European Romantic nationalism could be seen as problematic from a Jewish perspective. Both thinkers may have been motivated by the good of their group.

    neo-liberal “Chicago School”-style economics, also known as “Freshwater” economics, promoted by Milton Friedman

    In my opinion, even more important than to attack the hostile, mostly liberal media is for Trump to distance himself not just form the Neocon wing of the Republican party, but also to keep a healthy distance from and even attack Ayn Rand fanboys like Paul Ryan and other lackeys of the Koch Brothers:

    Interesting article from antiwar.com:

    Russophobia Hits the Libertarian Movement

    http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2017/07/09/russophobia-hits-libertarian-movement/

    Isn’t it odd that Reason opposes economic sanctions on Communist Cuba, but wants them slapped on Russia – which is just emerging from 70-some years of its Marxist nightmare? Perhaps one explanation is that the magazine is funded in large part by oil oligarch Charles Koch, of Koch Industries, who stands to make billions if Russian energy exports are blocked by government action.

    While ascribing this motivation to the editors of Reason may seem uncharitable, it is the least uncharitable explanation for publishing Young’s farrago of falsehood, innuendo, and neo-McCarthyite rubbish. Far worse would be an ideological motivation: that they actually believe the pathetic conspiracy theory Young cobbles together out of the imaginings of various professional Russophobes.

    While distancing herself from the “more extreme” anti-Russian narratives, which she admits are conspiracy theories with little evidence to support them, Young weaves a “moderate” conspiracy theory of her own – with just as little evidence to support it.

    The following is exactly my position, too. I am by no means a fan of Vladimir Putin and the Russian elites, but it is my hope to find some common ground with the Russians on certain issues where and when possible:

    Opponents of a new cold war with Russia are neither pro-Russian nor fans of Vladimir Putin. They are simply advocates of a common sense approach to Russia, and to US foreign policy in general, which holds that America’s real interests lie in cooperation with the world’s largest nation insofar as that is possible.

    If you oppose Cold War II, you are siding with Russia – this is the assumption at the heart of Young’s argument, and it is, simply put, a primitive lie.
