The size of the lie is a definite factor in causing it to be believed, for the vast masses of the nation are in the depths of their hearts more easily deceived than they are consciously and intentionally bad. The primitive simplicity of their minds renders them a more easy prey to a big lie than a small one, for they themselves often tell little lies but would be ashamed to tell a big one. - Adolf Hitler

Our enemies are followers of a totalitarian ideology based on Islam, which tells them that Allah wishes to rule the world through them. Israel is a central front in this war. Given the weakness of Western support for the Jews, jihadists see attacking Israel as a strategic tool for eroding the West's ideological defenses and shoring up their supporters throughout the world. - Caroline Glick

Socialism is the doctrine that man has no right to exist for his own sake, that his life and his work do not belong to him, but belong to society, that the only justification of his existence is his service to society, and that society may dispose of him in any way it pleases for the sake of whatever it deems to be its own tribal, collective good. - Ayn Rand

A Symbolic Oak Tree Croaks

Nothing could be more emblematic of America’s postwar relationship with France, a country that succumbed to moonbattery generations ago and that never forgave us for saving its bacon in the World Wars. Last year, with theatrical symbolism, Trump and Emmanuel Macron ceremoniously planted an oak tree together on the White House lawn…

Macron, on a state visit to the US at the time, tweeted that the sapling would be “a reminder … of these ties that bind us” and the “tenacity of the friendship” of the two nations. From little acorns, great transatlantic ties would take root and grow, was the message.

Now, just as symbolically with relations strained between the two, the oak tree has reportedly died.

More typical of the current relationship than the planting of the oak tree was Macron’s appalling denunciation of nationalism at a gathering of world leaders in honor of Veterans/Armistice Day. This insulted the American troops who died defending the French nation because they knew that their own nation was threatened. In contrast, the Nazi enemy was antinationalist; its refusal to respect national sovereignty caused the war.

Franco-American relations will be healthy again when France rejects moonbattery. Macron’s popularity over the past 2 years is an encouraging sign.

Embassies Defiantly Promote Perversion

Embassies represent America abroad. They should present dignity and strength. Leftists would prefer that they represent perversion, degeneracy, and decadence.

The State Department being infested with moonbats, leftists tend to get their way. However, these days Foggy Bottom has a different kind of boss:

The State Department has rejected at least four requests from different U.S. embassies to fly LGBTQ pride flags during the month of June.

U.S. embassies in Israel, Germany, Brazil, and Latvia have each made requests to fly rainbow flags on the embassy’s flag pole, and the Trump administration has rejected each request, according to NBC News.

Flags promoting sexual deviancy can still be displayed elsewhere at the facilities, just not on the flag pole, as if it were an embassy for Sodom rather than for the USA.

This won’t do for liberal foreign service weenies. More loyal to the LGBT agenda than to the administration they supposedly serve, they have been showily indulging in the pathetic defiance of boldly liberal college professors:

The facades of the U.S. missions in Seoul and Chennai, India, are partially hidden behind large rainbow flags, while the embassy in New Delhi is aglow in rainbow colored lights. The website for the embassy in Santiago, Chile, shows a video of the chief diplomat raising a rainbow flag last month for the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.

Other irritating gestures have been made by the embassies in Vienna and Jerusalem.

“This is a category one insurrection,” said one diplomat, who like others interviewed about the sentiment over the rejections, which were not made in writing, spoke on the condition of anonymity for fear of being fired.

Chances of them getting fired are negligible. But government jobs are so cushy, it is best not to take chances.

What heroes. How boldly progressives stand for the one thing they truly believe in: decay.

There are always those who are willing to surrender local self-government and turn over their affairs to some national authority in exchange for a payment of money out of the Federal Treasury. Whenever they find some abuse needs correction in their neighborhood, instead of applying the remedy themselves they seek to have a tribunal sent on from Washington to discharge their duties for them, regardless of the fact that in accepting such supervision they are bartering away their freedom. - Calvin Coolidge

You Will Know Them by Their Piles of Trash

Leftist organizers barked that a quarter of a million would turn out to publicly disparage Donald Trump during his visit to England. Actual turnout was a few thousand mangy moonbats. But the piles of trash they characteristically produced were impressive nonetheless:

In contrast, Tea Party events were famous for leaving behind not so much as a gum wrapper, despite drawing larger crowds. This reflects a fundamental difference between the Left and the Right.

Battalion of Africans Invades Across Rio Grande

We aren’t just being invaded by Mexico. We aren’t just being invaded by Central America. We are being invaded by the entire 5.82 billion-strong, explosively fertile, endlessly needy Third World.

ABC News admits:

Border officials in Texas say a group of 116 Africans was arrested Thursday after wading through the Rio Grande to enter the United States.

They only need to know one word of English to be set loose inside our country: “asylum.”

The migrants were from Angola, Cameroon and other African nations and include families with children and young people who were not with relatives.

That is to say, the invaders came armed with the most effective weapons known to modern warfare.

Have a look at what life is like in the most civilized part of sub-Saharan Africa. Then ask yourself what good could come from importing the least civilized parts.

Anyone impeding the defense of the border from foreign incursion should be charged with treason.

Bolshevism is to be reckoned with Mohammedanism rather than with Christianity and Buddhism. Christianity and Buddhism are primarily personal religions, with mystical doctrines and a love of contemplation. Mohammedanism and Bolshevism are practical, social, unspiritual, concerned to win the empire of the world. - Bertrand Russell

Fascism entirely agrees with Mr. Maynard Keynes, despite the latter's prominent position as a Liberal. In fact, Mr. Keynes' excellent little book, The End of Laissez-Faire (l926) might, so far as it goes, serve as a useful introduction to fascist economics. There is scarcely anything to object to in it and there is much to applaud. - Benito Mussolini
