Shortly after the 9/11 terrorist strike in Manhatten Oriana Fallachi had this to say: “The truth is that America is a special place, my friend. A country to envy, to be jealous of, for reasons that have nothing to do with wealth et cetera.

“It’s special because it was born out of a need of the soul, the need to have a homeland, and out of the most sublime idea that Man has ever conceived: the idea of liberty, or rather of liberty married to the idea of equality. It’s special also because the idea of liberty wasn’t fashionable at the time. Nor was the idea of equality. Nobody was talking about these things but a few philosophers of the so-called Enlightenment. You couldn’t find these concepts anywhere except in big expensive books released in installments and called Encyclopedias.


“And apart from the writers or the other intellectuals, apart from the princes and the lords who had the money to buy the big book or the books that inspired the big book, who knew anything about the Enlightenment? The Enlightenment wasn’t something you could eat! Not even the revolutionaries of the French Revolution were talking about it, seeing how the French Revolution didn’t start until 1789, thirteen years after the American Revolution exploded in 1776. (Another detail that the anti-Americans of the good-it-serves-America-right school ignore or pretend to forget. Bunch of hypocrites!)

“What’s more, it’s a special country, a country to envy, because that idea was understood by often illiterate and certainly uneducated farmers. The farmers of the American colonies. And because it was materialized by a small group of extraordinary men. By men of great culture, great quality. The Founding Fathers. Do you have any idea who the Founding Fathers were, the Benjamin Franklins and the Thomas Jeffersons and the Thomas Paines and the John Adamses and the George Washingtons and so on? These weren’t the small-time lawyers (“avvocaticchi” as Vittorio Alfieri rightly called them) of the French Revolution! These weren’t the brooding and hysterical executioners of the Terror, the Marats and the Dantons and the Saint Justs and the Robespierres!

“These were people, these Founding Fathers, who knew Greek and Latin like our own Italian teachers of Greek and Latin (assuming there still are any) will never know them. People who had read Aristotle and Plato in Greek, who had read Seneca and Cicero in Latin, and who had studied the principles of Greek democracy like not even the Marxists of my day studied the theory of surplus value. (Assuming they really did study it.) Jefferson even knew Italian. (He called it “Toscano”.) He spoke and read in Italian with great fluency. In 1774 as a matter of fact, along with the two thousand vine plants and the thousand olive trees and the music paper which was rare in Virginia, the Florentine Filippo Mazzei brought him multiple copies of a book written by a certain Cesare Beccaria entitled “Of Crimes and Punishments.”

“As for the self-taught Franklin, he was a genius. Scientist, printer, editor, writer, journalist, politician, inventor. In 1752 he discovered the electric nature of lightning and invented the lightning rod. Is that enough for you?

“And it was with these extraordinary leaders, these men of great quality, that the often illiterate and certainly uneducated farmers rebelled against England in 1776. They fought the War of Independence, the American Revolution.

Well, despite the muskets and the gun powder, despite the death toll that is the cost of every war, they didn’t do it with the rivers of blood of the future French Revolution. They didn’t do it with the guillotine and massacres at Vandea.

“They did it with a piece of paper that, along with the need of the soul, the need to have a homeland, put into effect the sublime idea of liberty–or rather of liberty married to quality. The Declaration of Independence. “We hold these Truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness; that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men…”

“And that piece of paper that we’ve all been copying well or badly from the French Revolution on, or from which we’ve drawn our inspiration, is still the backbone of America. The vital lymph of this nation. You know why? Because it turns the plebes into the People. Because it invites them, rather orders them, to govern themselves, to express their own individuality, to pursue their own happiness.

“All the opposite of what communism did, prohibiting people to rebel, to govern themselves, to express themselves, to get rich, and setting up His Majesty the State in place of the customary kings. My father used to say, “Communism is a monarchic regime, and it’s an old-school monarchy. Because it cuts off men’s balls. And when you cut off a man’s balls, he’s no longer a man.” He also used to say that instead of freeing the plebes, communism turned everyone into plebes. It made everyone starve to death.

“Well, in my view America frees the plebes. Everyone is a plebe there. White, black, yellow, brown, purple, stupid, intelligent, poor, rich. Actually the rich are the most plebeian of all. Most of the time they’re such boors! Crude, ill-mannered. You can tell immediately that they’ve never read Galateo, that they’ve never had anything to do with refinement and good taste and sophistication.

“In spite of the money they waste on clothes, for example, they’re so inelegant as to make the Queen of England look chic by comparison. But they are freed, by God. And in this world there is nothing stronger or more powerful than freed plebes. You will always get your skull cracked when you go up against the Freed Plebe. And they all got their skulls cracked by America: English, Germans, Mexicans, Russians, Nazis, Fascists, Communists. Even the Vietnamese got theirs cracked in the end, when they had to come to terms after their victory so that now when a former president of the United States goes there to visit they’re in seventh heaven. “Bienvenu, Monsieur le President, bienvenu!”

“The problem is that the Vietnamese don’t pray to Allah. It’s going to be much harder to deal with the sons of Allah. Much longer and much harder. Unless the rest of the Western world stops peeing its pants. And starts reasoning a little and gives them a hand.

It’s not new. It’s been going on since 1972 when members of the Islamic inspired Palestinian terror group called Black September kidnapped and murdered 11 Israeli Olympians in Munich, Germany.

The five dead Palestinian attackers—Afif, Nazzal, Chic Thaa, Hamid and Jamal, were killed during the Fürstenfeldbruck gun battle and delivered to Libya, where they received heroes’ funerals and were buried with full military honours. Why do Islamic Terrorists get protection at their meeting places where it is easy to plan terrorist attacks on the superior West?

The Global Terrorism Database (GTD) is an open-source database i that contains information on more than 150,000 Terrorist attacks around the world from 1970 through 2015

So this isn’t new but it’s never been adequetly answered. Nor have there been plans to defeat it. Why not? Partly because terrorism has been protected by the taboo of attacking a religion.

Top Obama Adviser Susan Rice Sought Names of Trump Associates By Using The Intelligence Services.

One U.S. official familiar with the reports Rice ordered said they contained valuable political information on the Trump transition such as whom the Trump team was meeting, the views of Trump associates on foreign policy matters and plans for the incoming administration. See The Bloomberg Report HERE. 
Even the extreme Left-wing Bloomberg reported: “Ever since former NSA contractor Edward Snowden disclosed top-secret documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, civil liberties advocates, progressives and libertarians have raised alarms about the ability of U.S. eavesdroppers to circumvent the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. This is through what is known as “incidental collection,” when a U.S. person is on the other end of a communication that is legally monitored by the U.S. government.

Until now, that issue has not had much traction in Congress. Republicans and Democrats — with few exceptions — have voted to reauthorize the law without making it harder to collect and disseminate the names of U.S. persons caught up in this surveillance.

National security experts and the U.S. government have defended these FISA programs as critical tools for tracking terrorists and detecting plots in the U.S. But like most government activities that are shrouded in secrecy therefore this snooping is prone to inevitable abuse as we see with Susan Rice.

There are the stories about how Obama’s White House sought to preserve and disseminate intelligence collected on ties between Trump’s associates and Russia in the final days of the presidency. Now Nunes says he has seen intelligence reports that contained details about Trump’s transition that were distributed widely inside the government, including to the White House.

Democrats should have a keen interest in all of this. After all, if Obama can keep tabs on his political opposition, there is nothing to stop Trump from doing the same.

If you say “I Hate America” Liberals will love and support you, … but not with their own money.


Liberals are horrible human beings because they are okay with terrorists like Bill Ayers teaching kids at a college.
Bill Maher, Barney Frank, Michael Moore, Keith Olbermann, Amanda Marcotte, Ed Schultz, Dan Savage, Ted Rall, Al Sharpton, etc., etc. are some of the most hate-filled people you’ll ever run into outside of a maximum security prison, but liberals consider it to be okay because their hate is aimed at conservatives, who are acceptable targets. This is why liberals felt perfectly comfortable attacking Sarah Palin’s children, harassing Michelle Malkin’s family until they had to move, and publicly posting the addresses of ordinary citizens who opposed Prop 8. They’re hate-filled people who are constantly accusing EVERYONE ELSE of behaving the way they do on a daily basis. So, if you want to find the most hate-filled people in America, look for a liberal lecturing other people about how important it is not to hate people and you’re practically guaranteed to be looking at a hate-filled person.

Liberals never ever admit they’re wrong and they systematically ruin and destroy everything they become involved with and then either point the finger elsewhere or demand even bigger government to fix the problems they created.

Look at Detroit –  liberals did that. President Trump is trying to fix it.

Liberalism is all about appearances, not outcomes. What matters to liberals is how a program makes them FEEL about themselves, not whether it works or not. Thus a program like Headstart, which sounds good because it’s designed to help children read, makes liberals feel good about themselves, even though the program doesn’t work and wastes billions. A ban on DDT makes liberals feel good about themselves because they’re “protecting the environment” even though millions of people have died as a result. For liberals, it’s not what a program does in the real world; it’s about whether they feel better about themselves for supporting it.

Liberalism doesn’t convince with logic. It can’t, because the policies liberals advocate don’t work. So instead, liberals have to use emotion-based ploys and attack the motives of people they disagree with while attempting to keep conservative arguments from being heard at all. Why? Because they have no good answers to questions like these.

What is the “fair share” of someone’s income they have earned that they should be able to keep?

People have more choices than ever before in music, entertainment, careers, news sources and how to spend their time. Shouldn’t government mirror that trend by cutting taxes so we have more ways to spend our own money instead of removing our choices by centralizing more and more power in Washington, DC?

Why do you think liberals get so upset about a conservative-leaning news station like Fox News, when ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, and CNN all lean to the left? It’s because liberals don’t think people should be allowed to have an opinion that differs from their own.
