He Fights

He Fights
Evan Sayet | Posted: Jul 13, 2017



My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum.  They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”  Here’s my answer:

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity.  There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.  We tried statesmanship.  Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?  We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?  And the results were always the same.


This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.  I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.  I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent.  Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s.   To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale.  It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.


The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war.  While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.


With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end.  Donald Trump is America’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors.  Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.  Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today.   Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man.  He fights.”

General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, son-of-a-bitch.  In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank.  But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum, then Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

Trump is fighting.  And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!”  That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics.

That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis.   It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.

Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do.

First, instead of going after “the fake media” – and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri – Trump isolated CNN.  He made it personal.  Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.”

Everyone gets that it’s not just CNN – in fact, in a world where Al Sharpton and Rachel Maddow, Paul Krugman and Nicholas Kristof are people of influence and whose “reporting” is in no way significantly different than CNN’s – CNN is just a piker.

Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position.  With Trump’s ability to go around them, they cannot simply stand pat. They need to respond.  This leaves them with only two choices.

They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery.

The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.  It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive. 

[snip]


And, by causing their hysteria, Trump has forced them into numerous, highly embarrassing and discrediting mistakes.   Thus, in their desperation, they have lowered their standards even further and run with articles so clearly fake that, even with the liberal (lower case “l”) libel laws protecting the media, they’ve had to wholly retract and erase their stories repeatedly.

Their flailing at Trump has even seen them cross the line into criminality, with CNN using their vast corporate fortune to hunt down a private citizen for having made fun of them in an Internet meme.  This threat to “dox” – release of personal information to encourage co-ideologists to visit violence upon him and his family — a political satirist was chilling in that it clearly wasn’t meant just for him.  If it were, there would have been no reason for CNN to have made their “deal” with him public.

Instead, CNN – playing by “Chicago Rules” – was sending a message to any and all: dissent will not be tolerated.

This heavy-handed and hysterical response to a joke on the Internet has backfired on CNN, giving rise to only more righteous ridicule.

So, to my friends on the Left – and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”?  Of course I do.   These aren’t those times.  This is war.  And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting  without opposition for the past 50 years.

So, say anything you want about this president – I get it, he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times.  I don’t care.  I can’t spare this man.  He fights.

    This article reflects exactly how I feel about the demeanor, rhetoric and actions of our current President. I’ve long been a proponent of using our adversaries playbook against them, and it’s about time we had a leader who did exactly that.

    I equate the left (sinister) to Biblical Cain, who slayed his brother Able because Cain was jealous and envied Able. And when Cain was confronted Cain lied.

    The left is simply a genetic offspring of all that is evil, they admit it openly what they strive to do;
    all while they transfer and project a reflection of their evilness onto those that are good.

    Trump identified how small the elite are. Remember, the meek shall inherit the earth, not the elite. Those who mock Trump for his “style” are nothing more than the elite who are profoundly hypocritical. The same little minded children who mocked school mates for no real reason other than they simply hate others. MSM is just one of hundreds of example. The Cains of the world, and the good were not to raise a hand to.

    So, here we are today, being patient and tolerant. The Cains will never go away less we cut it down as a fruitless bare fig tree.

    Excellent points made, but wish you could have used other then domestic enemies and traitors to the USA and the American people as examples of “quiet dignity” and “collegiality”.

    The Bushes supported Hitler’s regime and assisted in growing it. They still work against the US Constitution today, trying to bring us into the NWO (new words for the same old “I’m going to rule the world”).

    Then there is “songbird” John McCain. We still have no idea of how many of our loyal, honest American soldiers in Vietnam died because he sold us out there after being captured. His father covered it all up, sent him out to that singers ranch, (carol ??) in Idaho while he smoothed things down and made him into a corrupt politician by clearing the way for him.

    You want someone who actually is an excellent example and KEPT, still KEEPS his Oath; works tirelessly for the US Constitution is Ron Paul. I personally can not think of a better person to represent what is GOOD about America and was good in American politics. Soon we have to replace all the Oath breakers, Domestic Enemies, and Traitors to our nation, or lose it. But it MUST be done constitutionally.’

    Off subject but pertinent to our country and its legitimate government; serving Law Enforcement, serving Military – learn what the oath means, what your duties are so that you can no longer be used to destroy our nation from within. (“You” and all versions of it used here are generic)

    Your supreme Oath and duty is to the US Constitution, and NOT to a person or office (such as the Office of the President) for a reason. That document very rarely changes and not without great difficulty. That is what you are required by that Oath to follow. That way you will never be used to destroy our nation from within. It IS all in writing, go read it as you are lawfully bound to it and bound to support and defend it first above the orders of any superiors of all ranks, and above the duties of the position that you occupy.

    You’re needed to be an American first, by supporting and defending the US Constitution not “just following orders” or “just doing your jobs”. That is what got Germany, Russia, China, etc their bad reputation -deservedly so. Without you, at least until the “cyborgs” and robots are released – which is ongoing already – they cannot do those things without YOU. They cannot destroy our nation without YOU, and others in your positions. You are the ones who carry out those UNLAWFUL, and at times, treasonous orders. But here is the difference between you and those Germans, Russians, Chinese of a few decades back; your Oath and the US Constitution REQUIRES that you not follow unlawful orders and that you know what constitutes an unlawful order. The burden is put on the individual serving within our governments, and it is not just on the enforcement segments, but on those in the gov agencies also. But it is the enforcers who are the ones who kick in doors, stop people when NO CRIME has been committed (as constitutionally required), requires papers for driving registration, hunting, fishing, building/fixing homes and property, etc all things that are Natural Rights and are required to be defended by those who serve within our government – that is why our governments were created.

    Before you get angry let me point out some (and this is only SOME) areas where this is ongoing. SWAT teams regularly break and enter UNLAWFULLY into people’s houses and then wonder why everyone is starting to get angry. People are regularly pulled over for no crime, and questioned and/or searched and then wonder why people here in “free” America are getting more and more angry. People have been forced to remove their gardens which any thinking person would realize must be a NATURAL RIGHT above the authority of those who serve within our governments because it was done by people before governments existed.

    “Constitution of this state declares, among inalienable rights of each citizen, that of acquiring, possessing and protecting property. This is one of primary objects of government, is guaranteed by constitution, and cannot be impaired by legislation.” Billings v. Hall (1857), 7 C. 1.

    “Right of property antedates all constitutions. Every person has right to enjoy his property and improve it according to his own desires in any way consistent with rights of others.” People v. Holder (1921), 53 C.A. 45, 199 P. 832.

    “Constitutional guarantee securing to every person right of acquiring, possessing, and protecting property refers to right to possess absolutely and unqualifiedly every species of property recognized by law and all rights incidental thereto, including right to dispose of such property in such manner as he pleases.” People v. Davenport (1937), 21 C.A. 292, 69 P.2d 396.

    “Right of protecting property, declared inalienable by constitution, is not mere right to protect it by individual force, but right to protect it by law of land, and force of body politic.” Billings v. Hall (1857), 7 C. 1.

    “To say that one may not defend his own property is usurpation of power by legislature.” O’Connell v. Judnich (1925), 71 C.A.386, 235 P. 664.

    “But whenever the operation and effect of any general regulation is to extinguish or destroy that which by law of the land is the property of any person, so far as it has that effect, it is unconstitutional and void. Thus, a law is considered as being a deprivation of property within the meaning of this constitutional guaranty if it deprives an owner of one of its essential attributes, destroys its value, restricts or interrupts its common, necessary, or profitable use, hampers the owner in the
    application of it to the purposes of trade, or imposes conditions upon the right to hold or use it and thereby seriously impairs its value.” (Statute) 167 Am. Jur. 2d, Constitutional Law, Section 369.

    Your country and its people need you to keep your Oath. This is where what you do is paramount to what will occur here in our nation.

    God Bless All, Stay Safe!

      Cal is as always on target. Here are some additional comments he (I assume) made on our unalienable property rights:

      http://www.offthegridnews.com/current-events/court-man-cant-live-off-grid-on-his-own-land/

      Notice the difference in how the police state treats homeless sleeping in the streets versa property owners. Anytime they can confiscate something of value it is balls out tyranny. Like Waco, Hammond, Bundy and on and on.

      I write President Trump compelling him to address the tyranny of local and state governments that use their bureaucratic regulations, fees, taxes and threats to, in essence, criminalize property owners. If a property owner does not comply, example Bundy, and the article in the link above. We all must do the same. And on the local level educate educate educate !!!!
