Fire & Fury In Phoenix
President Trump was clearly fired up during last night's rally in Phoenix, Arizona. Thousands of conservatives braved left-wing mobs to get into the rally. And they had to endure the same mobs to leave the rally, but they did it.
The left-wing protestors were so disorderly that police had to respond with tear gas and stun grenades. But Arizona conservatives refused to be cowed by these so-called "progressives" who want to shut down free speech.

The President's Speech
President Trump addressed the nation last night from Fort Myer in Arlington, Virginia. His remarks about winning the war in Afghanistan were measured and his tone was presidential.
Trump has appeared numerous times before military audiences, and the troops are always boisterous in their support. But last night, they clearly had been told that this was a serious, solemn address. And it was.

The Eclipse. . . Of Reason
The degree to which irrationality is now driving public debate is depressing and, quite frankly, frightening. It would take too much space here to catalogue all the places in America where memorials and statues have been attacked, defaced and vandalized. But I will mention two.
A monument in Kansas City, Missouri, honoring the wives and mothers of Southern soldiers, was defaced. A red hammer and sickle was painted on it -- the symbol of the old Soviet Union.
|Barcelona Bloodbath, The American Taliban||
Once again, the world is being subjected to images of dead and dying people on the streets of Europe. Yet another vicious attack has been carried out by a committed enemy. Fourteen people in Barcelona, Spain, were killed and more than 100 were injured when jihadists turned vehicles into weapons of mass destruction. (As I write, there are breaking reports of a massive fire at the Barcelona airport.)

Sessions vs. Sanctuary Cities
The hate we saw in Charlottesville over the weekend overshadowed another weekend of death in the city of Chicago. Thirty people were shot and nine were killed.
Many of these deaths are the result of drug gangs fighting each other. Tragically, all too often innocent victims get caught in the crossfire. Sunday, two worshippers at a black church were gunned down.

Jew Hatred Is Evil
Many vile and hateful things were said and done in Charlottesville over the weekend. This morning, a good friend brought to my attention a video that I had not previously seen capturing some of that vileness.
A group of marchers in Charlottesville were chanting, "You will not replace us." That chant quickly morphed into, "Jews will not replace us."

Fire & Fury Wins
President Trump warned North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un that he faced "fire and fury" if he attacked the United States or our allies. Secretary of Defense James Mattis said yesterday that if Kim fired missiles toward Guam or the U.S., "It's game on. . . The bottom line is we will defend the country and for us that's war."
It seems North Korea's Stalinist dictator got the message.

Trump Addresses The Nation
Shortly after noon today, President Trump addressed the nation from the White House. His remarks, which largely echoed his comments from this weekend, were a powerful condemnation of bigotry and racism. He notably added a condemnation of specific groups, including the KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists.
The president vowed to bring those responsible for the violence in Charlottesville to justice, and he again called on all Americans to unite together in "love and loyalty." Here are excerpts of the president's statement:

Multiple big media outlets were in a tizzy again this morning. According to them, President Trump was "ratcheting up" tensions with North Korea when he wrote this tweet: "Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong-un will find another path!"

The Post's Propaganda
I was furious this morning after I finished reading my copy of today's Pyongyang Post, I mean the Washington Post. It is hard to tell the difference. The left-wing media's hyper-critical coverage of President Trump is matched only by the propaganda coming from North Korea's state-run media.
