 Trump's Military Strategy Is Working Against the   Islamic State 
Last year, then-Candidate Donald Trump made clear his plan for dealing with the Islamic State: "Quickly and decisively bomb the hell out of ISIS," he said. During the campaign Trump was widely panned by his opponents for lacking a realistic, dynamic or well-developed strategy for defeating the Islamic State. But Trump is proving his critics wrong. He has correctly surmised that the role of the commander in chief is that of a manager, not a producer. As a result, he has enabled and entrusted leaders and experts within the military to develop, recommend and implement the best strategies for winning.
          In May, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced a new annihilation strategy, stating, "No longer will we have slowed decision cycles because Washington, DC, has to authorize tactical movements. I'll leave that to the generals who know how to do those kind of things. We don't direct that from here. They know our intent is the foreign fighters do not get out. I leave it to their skill, their cunning, to carry that out."
          Mattis' statement was a direct repudiation of Barack liar-nObama's practice of politically micromanaging the military's war efforts. Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. David Deptula noted, "The reduction in micromanagement of tactical level actions by the White House staff during the liar-nObama era, to the delegation of authority to conduct military actions to military professionals by President Trump is a laudatory step in assuring our national security strategy is optimally executed."
          Similar to his executive orders cutting onerous and costly regulations, Trump has cut much of the red tape that was binding the military's efforts in combatting the Islamic State. Freed from Washington's micromanagement, U.S. forces have been able to engage the enemy to greater effect — they're now able to adapt more rapidly to battle conditions in determining tactical actions without having to get clearance from DC.
          And as Trump promised, the bombing of Islamic State forces has increased. This past February, coalition forces conducted 831 airstrikes compared with 684 in February 2016. Essentially, the biggest change seen in the war effort from liar-nObama to Trump has less to do with strategy and more to do with trust. Besides having created the Islamic State, liar-nObama calculated the political cost of every move, and micromanaged accordingly. Trump fully trusts the leadership and the soldiers of the U.S. military to do what they are trained to do. He is simply giving them the green light to go and do their job.

Lynch Professes Innocence – Through
Spokesman, To The Best Of Her Knowledge
by Rick Wells
{} ~ Democrat dragon woman, Senator Kamala Harris, viciously attacked Attorney General Jeff Sessions in testimony before the Intelligence Committee... for qualifying his statements with phrases such as “to the best of my knowledge” or “to the best of my recollection,” forcing him to defend their use by stating that if he didn’t they’d accuse him of lying if he made a mistake. At least he was legitimately attempting to answer the questions to the best of his ability, not using phraseology and word parsing as a cover for wrongdoing. The same can’t be said for former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who, rather than answer questions about her suspected criminal abuse of power directly, in public, chose to hide behind a spokesperson, providing herself with an additional layer of insulating deniability. Now she can claim her spokesperson was mistaken as well as having not having been provided the complete information. That spokesman, Robert Raben, wrote in a letter to top members of the Judiciary Committee on Thursday, providing her official response to questions regarding allegations made by former FBI Director Comey that she had meddled into the ridiculously decided, so-called liar-Clinton “investigation.” She may have actually been correct in telling Comey to call it a matter rather than an investigation as the outcome was clearly predetermined...
Trump presses Putin on Syria,
US election meddling in first meeting
{} ~ President Trump pressed Russia’s Vladimir Putin on U.S. election meddling while also making headway on the Syria crisis during their first formal meeting on Friday... according to administration officials who offered details on the highly anticipated sit-down in Germany which lasted more than two hours. One of the big questions going into Friday’s meeting on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Hamburg was whether Trump would confront Putin over long-standing allegations of meddling in last year’s presidential campaign Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters that Trump in fact opened the meeting with those concerns, leading to a "robust" discussion. "The president pressed Putin, on multiple occasions -- Putin denied involvement, as I believe he has done in the past," Tillerson said in an off-camera briefing with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin...
Attempt To Bring Him Down? Trump
Suffering From At Least One Intelligence Leak/Day!
by Onan Coca
{} ~ The Washington Free Beacon is reporting on a shocking new study that the Senate just released showing that leaks have been coming from our intelligence community at an unprecedented level... And most of the leaked information has been meant to damage President Trump. Since President Trump has taken office there have been a flood of leaks from the government, leaks that threaten to seriously damage our national security. Sadly, much of it seems to be partisan in nature as loyal liar-nObama supporters continue to leak information in their efforts to undermine the Trump administration. The inquiry found the following:...
Eastern Europe Chooses
to Keep Western Civilization

by Giulio Meotti
{} ~ In a historic speech to an enthusiastic Polish crowd before the meeting of the G20 Summit leaders, US President Donald Trump described the West's battle against "radical Islamic terrorism" as the way to protect "our civilization... and our way of life". Trump asked if the West had the will to survive: "Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?" Trump's question might find an answer in Eastern Europe, where he chose to deliver his powerful speech...
Equal To Reagan’s Best, Trump
Speech Tackled Terrorists to Globalists
by Rick Wells
{} ~ Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich joined Laura Ingraham on the Hannity program to offer his insight into President Trump’s speech today in Warsaw, Poland... They play a clip from the speech to being the conversation in which President Trump says, “Our defense is not just a commitment of money, it is a commitment of will. Because, as the Polish experience reminds us, the defense of the West ultimately not only on means but also on the will of its people to prevail and be successful, and get what you have to have.” Trump continued, “The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive. Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?” Gingrich says he thought Trump was particularly courageous for pointing out that we’re not only in a struggle against Islamic terrorists, “we’re also in a struggle with bureaucratic secularists, such as the British court that basically wants to kill Charlie Gard, the little baby that they do not want to allow to go and have any kind of help either at the Vatican or in the United States.”...
The unhealthy obsession
of Trump's conservative critics

 by David Limbaugh
{} ~ The frustration of many Trump critics on the right, or MTCRs, is palpable and growing. Some are becoming more elitist by the day and utterly out of touch with rank-and-file conservatives, which is a particularly bitter pill to swallow because they believe they are the main arbiters of what conservatism means.

Some are obviously disgusted with everything about Trump – his demeanor, his tweets, his combativeness, his bigger-than-life personality, his egotism and tons more. Their revulsion blinds them to anything positive. They are so invested in Trump’s failure that they can’t stomach rooting for him even when he’s advancing conservative policies or fighting those dedicated to obstructing them. Their unhealthy Trump obsession compels them to present evidence every passing hour to justify their opposition.

I’ve seen their ire and experienced their snobbish condemnation on social media. It has become personal for many because they apparently view conservative Trump supporters as frauds and sellouts. They attack our character instead of considering that our calculus is that Trump may advance a conservative agenda more successfully than presidents ostensibly more conservative than he.

What MTCRs don’t seem to grasp is that rank-and-file conservatives largely support Trump. They aren’t mortified by his every tweet. They refuse to allow the perfect to be the enemy of the good.

Most Trump supporters are not cultists who are blind and indifferent to his faults and indelicacies, but nor are they soiling themselves in agony over them. They have not betrayed their principles in supporting and defending Trump. They are not hypocrites for cheering him on against the plethora of leftist assaults. They don’t root for Trump because they seek revenge against the left, as some have wrongly supposed. The left’s war on America, as founded, is ongoing, not some one-off offense for which we seek redress.

Trump supporters see a bigger picture here – greater stakes, bigger hills to die on. They support him as the last best hope to save America – or at least to return it to the right path. They’re behind him because they believe he is attempting to turn the country around and, in many cases, succeeding. They are ecstatic that he is standing up to the political left and firing back – so they aren’t going to be overly exercised over his every fault. He is filling the enormous void in Washington created by feckless politicians and commentators on the right who have refused to show the will to strike back against the left.

Rank-and-file conservatives are convinced that America and Western civilization are imperiled. They understand the damage done to our founding principles, values, traditions and mores and the harm inflicted on the Constitution and rule of law by generations of leftist assaults.

For them, politics is not a Beltway parlor game or a matter of petty partisanship. It’s about saving the nation for themselves and their children. They see the urgency, and no amount of highhanded judgmentalism from smug conservative elites about their alleged hyperbole and hysteria is going to shame them into denial.

When parents in this country refuse to specify their newborn babies’ gender on their birth certificates, we know that postmodernism and moral relativism have made their marks. We recognize intellectual and moral anarchy. Dismiss this as anecdotal irrelevancy if you will, but honest observers of the American scene witness such absurdity every day. Our culture is rife with it – from our universities to Hollywood to the media.

Some of the most indignant MTCRs cautioned restraint in criticizing President liar-nObama, telling us either that we were exaggerating the horrors of his crusade to radically transform America as founded or that our opposition would backfire. They were pragmatic, and we were dogmatic and reactionary.

Ironically, their pragmatism contributed to the frustration that culminated in the Trump movement. Yet now these self-appointed arbiters of genuine conservatism are accusing conservative Trump supporters, whom they formerly criticized for being conservative extremists, of abandoning conservatism. It seems that MTCRs are dwindling in numbers, but the most ardent ones are still oblivious to the Trump phenomenon and why it originated.

But what about Trump’s tweets? Well, most conservatives aren’t bothered by most of Trump’s tweets, because they are just a continuation of what Trump was doing in plain sight during the primaries. Not every supporter approves of every tweet, but I dare say they love that Trump is finally taking the fight to the leftist media and putting them back on their heels for the first time in our adult lifetimes – again, not for revenge but because the leftist media are enemies of truth and must be confronted.

Besides, why should we become humorless boors like some of our brethren on the left? Let’s not take ourselves so seriously that we feign outrage over tweets that not only don’t foster violence as alleged but parody it. We’ve been waiting for someone to feed the left some of its own medicine. That moment has arrived. Enjoy it.

MTCRs are indignant that Trump supporters point to leftist hypocrisy and malfeasance when debating the propriety of Trump’s media-lampooning tweets. But conservatives have always criticized the left. Would they have us declare a moratorium on opposition to liberalism to avoid any appearance of condoning Trump? Sorry, but we will not unilaterally disarm for fear of being accused of hypocrisy.

Moreover, it is ludicrous to suggest that Trump threatens the free press merely because he is fighting back. These are powerful entities dedicated not to the reporting of news but to hiding behind the First Amendment to destroy him personally and to delegitimize his presidency and thwart his agenda, at the expense of doing their job of reporting the news.

Another irony is that if MTCRs would quit obsessing over Trump instead of his policy agenda, they might have a better chance of influencing him in a conservative direction on issues where it could make a difference, such as in health care and tax reform. But for now, their knee-jerk aversion to Trump has rendered them impotent.

Of course, Trump doesn’t deserve a pass from conservative criticism when it’s warranted. But let’s not lose our heads and criticize him out of pride or bitterness – and let’s try to stay focused on issues that truly matter.
