Final Thoughts

Is there any position Trump won’t abandon for the sake of someone liking him that particular day? Is there any flip-flop to great for this president? I’m fairly sure the #AlwaysTrump crowd will find a way to justify this or call it 4D chess or brilliant genius. But most will simply call it what it is: a betrayal.

Andrew Cuomo’s sentiment is what drives the progressive movement

Andrew Cuomos sentiment is what drives the progressive movement

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo did not misspeak when he declared America “was never that great” earlier today. In fact, his press office doubled down on the statement. What was a not-so-subtle jab at President Trump’s campaign slogan is quickly becoming the primary message of his reelection campaign.

The spin now is that his press office was attempting to walk back his comment, but that’s not the case. They’re now taking the faux pas and driving it into the heart of his messaging.

Andrew Cuomo shocks crowd, says America ‘was never that great

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/08/15/andrew-cuomo-shocks-crowd-says-america-was-never-that-great.html“We have not reached greatness, we will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged, we will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of our population, is gone and every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed and every woman is making her full contribution,” he said.

Within hours, his spokeswoman tried walking it back. “The Governor believes America is great and that her full greatness will be fully realized when every man, woman, and child has full equality. America has not yet reached its maximum potential,” Cuomo’s press secretary, Dani Lever, said in a statement. “When the President speaks about making America great again – going back in time – he ignores the pain so many endured and that we suffered from slavery, discrimination, segregation, sexism and marginalized women’s contributions. The Governor believes that when everyone is fully included and everyone is contributing to their maximum potential, that is when America will achieve maximum greatness.”

Here’s the problem with all of this. It’s a notion that’s deeply embedded in the body of the progressive movement. They look at America’s history and see only flaws. There have definitely been bad times in America from slavery to the horrid treatment of native Americans, but in a progressive’s mind it was generally all bad. Capitalism, for example, has been to progressives what makes America evil instead of the engine upon which our nation has driven past the rest of the world.

The past that progressives see is one filled with hatred and intolerance. Yet, they do not see their own lack of tolerance for America’s past that contributed to our former greatness. They want to eradicate everything that’s not new, including Judeo-Christian values. Perhaps especially Judeo-Christian values.

There’s a reason right-leaning media outlets are jumping all over the comments while left-leaning ones aren’t too concerned about them. To the right, Cuomo’s statements were just shy of blasphemous. To the left, his words were a bold statement of their personal truths. They do not think America was great. They believe the only way American can ever be great is if we abandon the very things that made us great in the first place.

We should be a Christian nation. That’s not to say we need to abandon religious freedom or embrace a theocratic model, but to disregard the contributions of Judeo-Christian values for our nation since its founding is idiotic. Unfortunately, those values are seen only as roadblocks to the progressive agenda. This more than anything else is why they often openly denounce these values. They just don’t fit the progressive narrative.

Cuomo’s words won’t be fully walked back because he and so many other progressives hold his words as truth. Spinning it the way they are is only being done to suspend disbelief from moderates. For the progressive base, these words are part of their doctrine.

Robert Wood Johnson on the failed Iran deal

Robert Wood Johnson on the failed Iran deal

As ambassador to the United Kingdom, Robert Wood Johnson understands the situation in Iran. He’s acutely aware that sanctions against Iran are the only thing short of military intervention that can prevent them from producing nuclear weapons in the near future. The Iran deal, the alleged hallmark of President Obama’s and Secretary of State Kerry’s legacy, has been clearly demonstrated as an utter failure.

Iran has not backed down. They’ve only placated the world when absolutely necessary with lies on top of lies. The United States is fighting back by pulling out of the deal and laying sanctions on Iran, but they need more to join the fight. Johnson is calling on his host nation to follow suit.

“Far from becoming a more responsible member of the international community, as we had all hoped, Iran grew bolder.”

US ambassador urges UK to pull out of Iran nuclear deal

“It is time to move on from the flawed 2015 deal,” he continued. “We are asking global Britain to use its considerable diplomatic power and influence and join us as we lead a concerted global effort toward a genuinely comprehensive agreement.”

Ben Shapiro on white supremacists

One-liners have been a staple of Ben Shapiro’s appeal since the political commentator entered the public eye a few years ago. Give him a topic and he’ll come up with something clever and almost certainly true to say about it. The topic of white supremacists was no exception.

“It’s not coincidental that people who spend all day talking about the supposed innate superiority of the white race are invariably brick stupid.”
