The Goldberg File by Jonah Goldberg, NRO February 05, 2016

 

Jonah-Goldberg.jpgDear Reader (including those of you who wanted a Trump-free “news”letter, which this is. Please clap).

For reasons having to do with Original Sin, I had to watch the whole Democratic debate last night -- sober! So for that, and other reasons too mundane to share, even in this overly personal missive, I am crankier than the comments section on one of Kevin Williamson’s articles. So, as Bill Clinton said to the madame after he dispensed with the pleasantries, let’s get started.

In his play, The Decision, Berthold Brecht wrote:

Who fights for Communism must be able to fight and not to fight, to speak the truth and not to speak the truth, to perform services and not to perform services, to keep promises and not to keep promises, to go into danger and to keep out of danger, to be recognizable and not to be recognizable. Who fights for Communism has only one of all the virtues: that he fights for Communism.

Now, I understand a few things: (1) Socialism and Communism are not the same thing; (2) Bernie Sanders isn’t a Communist; (3) the biggest threat to good deli in this country isn’t the decline in pastrami and corned-beef consumption, but the tendency of bakers to stop making good Jewish rye.

Oh, sorry, it’s just that I can’t talk about Bernie Sanders without thinking about deli and when I think

Obama’s Growing Conflict of Interest in the Clinton E-Mail Scandal

by ANDREW C. MCCARTHY February 3, 2016 4:00 AM NRO

The latest revelations regarding Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information are stunning. For example, several of the former secretary of state’s “private” e-mails contain national-defense information so sensitive that it is classified at the highest levels. Moreover, classified information so pervades the thousands of pages of e-mails communicated through and stored on Mrs. Clinton’s unsecured, home brew server system that the court-ordered disclosure process has ground to a halt.

Remember, Mrs. Clinton reviewed her e-mails before finally surrendering them to the State Department, and she initially insisted there was no classified information in them. Now, it turns out they were so threaded with classified information that the State Department and intelligence agencies have fallen hopelessly behind the court’s disclosure schedule: The task of reviewing the e-mails and redacting the portions whose publication could harm national security has proved much more complicated than anticipated.

Thousands of remaining e-mails, and any embarrassing lapses they contain,

The American dream ended on November 6th, 2012 in Ohio.

This was just sent to me by a close friend.  I've been feeling so discouraged lately about the way our country seems to be headed - after reading this I now know why. This certainly sums it ALL up!  Marilyn.

I, too, believe that the country is lost. The "have not's and do not's" have won. Only some miracle can change it. I'm not big on Donald Trump but maybe he's the dragon slayer.  Pray to God that there is time to right the terrible wrongs that have invaded our country.  Franklin Graham was speaking at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida in January, 2015, when he said America will not come back. He wrote: The American dream ended on November 6th, 2012 in Ohio. The second term of Barack Obama has been

A Noble Train of Artillery (1775-1776)

Henry_Knox.jpegLacking artillery in the Continental Army, Washington approved Henry Knox’s bold plan to transport 60 Tons of captured British artillery from Ft. Ticonderoga to Boston.  During the dead of winter and over the course of 56 days, Colonel Knox transported the artillery 300 miles across swamps, lakes, rivers and hills.  The artillery’s presence in Boston forced the British to quickly retreat.  Here are a few entries from Knox’s tattered Diary:

Dec ?, 1775  “We had not been out above an hour when the wind sprung up very fresh & directly against us -- the men after rowing exceedingly hard for above four hours seemed desirous of going ashore, to make a fire to warm themselves, I readily [consented] knowing them to be exceedingly weary.”

Dec 13, 1775  “… Received advice that… the Scow [flat-bottom boat] had gotten from off the rock on which she had run… & on the same Night the wind being exceeding high the sea had

Property Rights and Religious Liberty

Hillsdale_college.jpegExcellent and detailed explanation by Dr Larry P. Arnn,
President, Hillsdale College, of the importance of our property rights to protect our religious, and by extension all, of our God given rights.

An eerily prescient sentenced jumped out at me: "The fifth book of Aristotle’s Politics teaches us that tyrants seek to wear down every excellence in society and to obstruct friendships, especially friendships among the best people, on the principle that if they degrade everyone then people will submit." (emphasis added)

Select, salient, excepts:

Pope Francis is one who sometimes seems to be an example of the Christian who reads the New Testament as pointing in the direction of socialism. Commerce appears, in some of his writings and speeches, to be a grubby business purely based on self-interest—maybe even on exploitation, the opposite of charity. This reading of the New Testament—which I think flawed, by the way—is why Karl Marx,

Great Meeting!  Lots of good ideas & energy - Looking forward to Restoring America in 2016

How to Bag a RINO tells the first-hand story of what is probably the most stunning upset in a party congressional primary in American history.  Its young authors, ages 23 and 24, were at the center of the events in 2014 in Virginia that created worldwide coverage.  Anyone who wants to understand what is possible now in grassroots politics should read this book.  Morton Blackwell, President, The Leadership Institute
