Donald Trump will stand up to hateful mobs

James Comey: Former FBI chief testifies on Russia investigation

Actually, he didn’t. He just lied & denied everything. He can’t remember anything about participating in a coup to topple the president.

Comey says Russia investigation was ‘necessary’ as Republicans in the US Senate seek to blame him for FBI missteps.

More on Comey & the swamp rats below the fold.

With only days out from a presidential election we have entered the realm of presidential debates, a misnomer if ever there was one. Since Donald Trump won the last American presidential election, the last thing his critics want is debate. Instead, we have seen either a willingness to silence his supporters, to deny Trump the validity of his victory or to sponsor any left-wing outfit that can be mobilised to destabilise or denigrate Donald Trump.
.
Was it not Madonna who, days after the Trump inauguration, told a Washington DC protest that she had “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House”.

Biden repeats the biggest lie of the campaign. Trump never said the neo nazis were very fine people.

Has there not been an unrelenting campaign to remove Trump from ­office by whatever means his opponents can get their hands on; and if that includes riots, protests and ­anarchy, so be it.
Destroy property, put lives at risk, leave entire city blocks in ruin and hoist the blame on Donald Trump.
.
Enter Joe Biden. What does this mean for Australia?
Well, apart from the fact that Joe Biden recently thought that 200 million Americans have died from coronavirus, and apart from the fact that there is genuine concern being ­expressed about his cognitive capac­ity, Biden has issued an economic ­recovery plan, or so he calls it.
.
The heart of it is the determination to decarbonise America’s electricity system by 2035 and, preaching the mantra of Liberal and Labor here, reach net-zero carbon ­dioxide emissions for the entire economy by 2050. But Biden’s ambitions go beyond America. Biden wants to integrate climate policy into US Foreign, Trade and National Security strategies.
.
According to policy documents, under a Biden presidency he would lead an effort to “get every major country to ramp up the ambition of their domestic climate targets”. This puts cheap energy into the waste bin.
.
On many critical fronts, Trump has articulated genuine concerns felt by the so-called, “silent majority”.
.
Earlier this month, he launched an attack on what he called “decades of left-wing indoctrination in schools that has taught Americans to be ashamed of their country”. He did not shirk from addressing the culture wars. Australians and ­Americans must understand that there is a cultural battle going on and its instruments lie in the education system.
.
Donald Trump linked the recent violence in America to an education system which he says taught hatred rather than patriotism.
At a conference on US history at Washington’s National Archives last month, Trump argued: “The left-wing rioting and mayhem are the direct ­result of decades of left-wing indoctrination in our schools.”
.
And he said, as here, that schools and universities were teaching “critical race theory which taught young Americans that America was a ­wicked and racist nation”.
.
These are the things which, on voting day, will matter to Americans. And they resonate with Australians.
But President Trump didn’t end there. “American parents are not going to accept indoctrination in our schools, cancel culture at work or the repression of traditional faith, culture and values in the public square. Not anymore,” he said. Parents, everywhere, understand this.
.
Earlier this year, President Trump flew to Mount Rushmore in South Dakota to celebrate July 4.
Mount Rushmore National Memorial is an emblem of America’s present and past where we see the granite face of Mount Rushmore and a colossal sculpture, featuring the 18m heads of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.
.
And these Presidents were chosen to represent the nation’s birth, growth, development and preservation. It is sometimes referred to as the shrine of democracy.
.
He took to the stage below the famed monument to condemn what he described as “a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, ­defame our heroes, erase our values and indoctrinate our children”.
Not long after the world had seen statues deemed racist by protesters torn down in America and across the world, Donald Trump said simply: “This monument will never be desecrated … Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders and unleash violence in our cities … They think the American people are weak and soft and submissive, but they don’t know they are strong and won’t allow its history and culture to be taken from them.”
.
Trump further argued: “There is a new far-left fascism that demands ­absolute allegiance … if you do not follow its commands, you will be censured and punished. That is not going to happen to us. We will not be tyrannised, we will never surrender the spirit of July 4th 1776.”
.
Who, other than someone ideologically hamstrung, could not argue that by not withdrawing from the Paris ­climate agreement and the UN Human Rights Council and by not ­refusing to participate in the global compact on migration and by not ­refusing to recognise the legitimacy of the International Criminal Court, that these instruments would not, simply, hand control of American ­energy and immigration policy to ­unelected international bureaucrats.
Australia, we are going down that road.
.
Then, of course, there is the economy. In sport, you have a simple catch cry, look at the score board.
If you look at the American scoreboard prior to the pandemic, seven million new jobs were created, five million more than government ­“experts” projected during the previous administration.
The average unemployment rate, pre-pandemic, was lower than that of any administration in the history of America; African-American youth unemployment was at an all time low; African-American poverty had dec­lined to the lowest rate ever recorded; the unemployment rate for women was the lowest in almost 70 years; Veterans unemployment, the lowest ever; the unemployment rate for disabled Americans, the lowest ever.
.
And in terms of the critical issue of energy self-sufficiency, the US under Trump has become the No. 1 producer of oil and natural gas anywhere in the world.
The debates we are witnessing are, at best, peripheral to the real ­issues facing America.
.
There, as here, economic recovery is the crucial issue. Without that, not much else is possible.
By any objective criteria, the Trump record on the economy and old-fashioned values is outstanding. As Americans draw closer to ­voting day, these should secure for Trump a significant electorate victory.
