Why we’re adding Breitbart back to the mix… for now

Published

on

When we first launched this website, we did so to be a counterbalance against two powerful right-leaning news forces: Drudge and Breitbart. Both were very much in the back pocket of then-candidate Donald Trump, attacking conservative candidates like Ted Cruz and making excuses for every liberal or idiotic notion proposed by their chosen one.

Things have changed. Drudge has been subdued in recent weeks, spending less space promoting Trump’s agenda but also ignoring stories that damage him; currently, Sebastian Gorka’s resignation/termination is conspicuously absent from the site, for example. That’s not to say we won’t call them out when they lurch left or promote an alt-right agenda, but for the most part they’ve been under the radar for a while.

Breitbart is different. There’s always been conflict about how to handle the site because of the diversity of thought. It’s easy to take left-wing propaganda sites like HuffPo or Buzzfeed and ridicule their attempts to manipulate minds through spun narratives, but sites like Breitbart are different. Sometimes, they’re posting outrageous articles that do damage to the small-government, freedom loving movement embodied by federalism. Other times they are on the right side of the argument, often leading the discussion and boldly exploring topics from angles others wouldn’t touch.

The removal of Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka from the White House and their subsequent returns to Breitbart are interesting. While both still represent a destructive element in conservatism – namely the “alt-right” – they are also correct on some issues. Moreover, they seem to be the “MAGA purists” that compelled so many people to vote for Donald Trump in the first place.

To be perfectly clear, our mission at The New Americana has not changed. We want to promote conservative and federalist messages to the masses in an effort to educate the general population about the need to rein in DC. We do not support Republicans or Democrats. We support America, which means that we will call out members of either party when they push for expanding DC’s overreach and we will cheer them on when they shrink government to fit better inside the Constitution.

We haven’t changed, but Breitbart might. We’re willing to give them that chance. If they’re going to focus on being defenders of freedoms, calling out corruption and government expansion in DC, we will post those stories. If it turns out they’re going to continue to be a mouthpiece for the Trump agenda of growing DC, economic isolationism, and alt-right principles, we’ll take them off just as quickly.

Bannon and Gorka learned that embracing a lifetime liberal Democrat as their vehicle for change was stupid. What they couldn’t do from within Trump’s swamp of Ivanka, Kushner, Tillerson, and Mnuchin, perhaps they’ll be able to do from Breitbart. In the coming weeks, we’ll learn whether Breitbart is an ally to the small-government federalist cause or not.

    I will watch with a very skeptical eye. The alt right has never been a Conservative or Constitutional element of the GOP. They are weak minded populists and in many cases blatant white nationalists. Steve Bannon intentionally gave them a platform. The cause of Liberty cannot be advanced by those who would deny the Liberty of others.

      I’m not hopeful, but willing to give it a chance. Won’t take long. Will reevaluate next week.

    As much as I would love to have the Breitbart of old, I cannot follow links to the Breitbart of today. They’ve done too much damage to conservatism and have become a home to those to far too many anti-semites.

      Chances are pretty strong that we’ll come to the same exact conclusion. Funny… we were searching for good stories today and came up with exactly zero. Not giving up, but not hopeful.

The complete fraud that is socialism

The complete fraud that is socialism

Once again we are witness to the age-old scam of socialism with Leftists making promises to attain power that can never be fulfilled.

Long before Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago exposed the systematic oppression, torture, incarceration and deliberate mass murder that are the hallmarks of socialistic slavery. James A. Michener documented the 1956 Hungarian uprising against communism in his book ‘The Bridge at Andau’. While both are great literary works, ‘The Bridge at Andau’ laid bare the complete fraud that is the collectivist ideologies in creating a ‘Heaven on Earth’ or ‘worker’s paradise’ that never comes to fruition.

The selling of socialistic slavery to a new generation tends to follow a certain type of ‘progress’. Promises are made for all kinds of largess ranging from Free Healthcare, Free Housing, Free College, Free food to even Free income. All paid for with other people’s money. Never mind that It’s impossible to fulfill all of these wondrous asseverations. Appearances must be made to at least begin the process, so the ever-present task of wealth redistribution begins at the point of a gun.

This is also why the Socialist-Left obsesses over gun confiscation and the suppression of free speech. It is imperative for the Leftists to disarm the people since they generally object to having their property stolen from them. However, we are getting ahead of ourselves, this is to document how this exploitation of the people has ‘progressed’ in other collectivist enclaves to better understand how this crime against the people is perpetrated.

Why do collectivist regimes always require secret police apparatus and the suppression of Liberty?

This question was detailed in The Bridge at Andau in the chapters on the ‘AVO man’. In which he discusses the secret police organisation of the Hungarian Communists, the AVO (Allamvedelmi Osztaly). He bluntly asked and answered the question:

Why must communism depend on such dregs of society?

No matter on what elevated plane communism begins its program of total dictatorship. it sooner or later runs into such economic and social problems that some strong-arm force is required to keep the civil population under control.

As is the case now as it was then, a nation’s Socialist-Left will promise just about anything to attain power over the people:

When communism is wooing the workers in Csepel, all kinds of exaggerated promises are made if they seem likely to awaken men’s aspirations and their cupidity. These promises are couched in such simple terms and such effective symbols that they become immediate goals of the revolution.

Review briefly what communist agitators had once promised the Hungarians who appear in this book: consumer goods such as they had never known before, increased wages. increased social benefits, shorter hours of work, improved education for everyone, a greater social freedom, and a government directly responsible to the working classes. Under communism such promises were never even remotely capable of attainment.

[Our Emphasis]
If all of that sounds eerily familiar, it’s because that’s part of a very old song and dance that has deceived many a generation into enslaving themselves under socialism. Consider this recent story from the Associated Press:

Democrats lurch left on top policies as 2020 primary begins

NEW YORK (AP) — Democratic presidential contender Julian Castro launched his campaign by pledging support for “Medicare for All,” free universal preschool, a large public investment in renewable energy and two years of free college for all Americans.
….

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who is expected to launch his presidential campaign soon, has sponsored legislation to create a federal jobs guarantee program in several communities across America.

The pilot program… could ultimately transform the U.S. labor market by providing well-paid government employment with benefits for anyone who wants it.

[Our Emphasis]

As Margaret Thatcher so aptly surmised, eventually they will run out of other people’s money. In our case in the states, that is already the situation given the enormous debt and unfunded liabilities reaching into the stratosphere of trillions of dollars. Of course, this hasn’t deterred committed collectivists such as Democratic mayor Bill de Blasio who recently stated that ‘There’s plenty of money in the world… It’s just in the wrong hands!’ Never mind that it is morally wrong to steal the property of others or that once a society turns down the dead-end of socialism there will always be more people wanting more money from those who have it.

Wealth redistribution scams will always wreck the economy. A socialist regime that nationalizes the economy can never function better than one of economic Liberty. Soon enough everything breaks down, the people see through the lies and the government has to start breaking heads. Thus it is imperative that they have previously confiscated the people’s guns and made it illegal to defend themselves.

The Takeaway

Socialistic schemes always run contrary to basic human nature. Rewarding someone for not working will always result in less work. Conversely, punishing someone for working will also result in less work.

This basic logic of human nature seems to be lost on Leftists. But perhaps it is not. They have to know their schemes have never and will never work. And yet they still try to impose them on everyone else. Perhaps they know of the epic fraud they are continually perpetrating on society, but they don’t care. That will be the subject of our next installment.

As Venezuela implodes, Trump administration recognizes Juan Guaidó as President

As Venezuela implodes Trump administration recognizes Juan Guaid as President

The destruction of Venezuela by socialism and corruption is practically complete, but hope is on the horizon. A new President has been recognized by the United States, making Nicolas Maduro’s presidency nearly finished.

Juan Guaidó has been serving as the President of the National Assembly of Venezuela since earlier this month and assumed the role of interim President earlier today. The United States joins Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, and Puerto Rico in recognizing his claim as legitimate.

People have filled the streets of Caracas in an amazing display of solidarity against Maduro, who held an “inauguration” on January 11 despite clear indicators the May 2018 elections were rigged. Now, the streets of Caracas are full.

President Trump confirmed the move following multiple news outlets quoting White House officials.

Ironically, Guaidó’s rallying cry happens to be “Sí, se puede!”, Spanish for “Yes we can.”

My Take

This is the only viable move given the circumstances. As I posted on Facebook:

It may not be possible for Guaidó to turn around the failing nation without a lot of outside assistance, but one thing is certain: Maduro had zero chance of making anything better for his starving people.

Four Republicans Senators ask the President to transfer ISIS prisoners in Syria

Four Republicans Senators ask the President to transfer ISIS prisoners in Syria

As the United States military prepares for a full withdrawal from Syria, some are concerned that Islamic State fighters currently being held by Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) will be released or others be allowed to rejoin ISIS. Four Republican stalwarts in the Senate are calling on President Trump transfer the worst of these prisoners to Guantanamo Bay.

Senators Tom Cotton, John Cornyn, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio all signed the letter to the President requesting this action.

The President announced the move to pull out of Syria on Twitter last month following a phone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. This prompted the resignation of former Secretary of Defense James Mattis and drew condemnation from people on the left and right who felt the President was abandoning our allies in the war against ISIS.

Turkey has long wanted the United States out of Syria so they could deal with the Kurdish forces that they consider to be terrorists.

My Take

This is a smart move to do before the withdrawal, but this letter was also a not-so-subtle reminder to the President that pulling out of Syria quickly will have repercussions. Both National Security Adviser John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have tempered the President’s remarks by saying the United States will pull out just as soon as ISIS is fully defeated.

One thing is certain: if these terrorists and militants are not moved to Guantanamo Bay, many if not all of them will eventually return to the Islamic State to continue their mission against the the rest of the world.
