“Dark And Divisive”

The New York Times has been calling for the destruction of Mt. Rushmore all week, and they call the President’s speech “dark and divisive”

“We are the country of Andrew Jackson, Ulysses S. Grant, and Frederick Douglass. We are the land of Wild Bill Hickock and Buffalo Bill Cody. We are the nation that gave rise to the Wright Brothers, the Tuskegee Airmen, Harriet Tubman, Clara Barton, Jesse Owens, George Patton — General George Patton — the great Louie Armstrong, Alan Shepard, Elvis Presley, and Mohammad Ali. And only America could have produced them all. No other place.

We are the culture that put up the Hoover Dam, laid down the highways, and sculpted the skyline of Manhattan. We are the people who dreamed a spectacular dream it was called: Las Vegas, in the Nevada desert; who built up Miami from the Florida marsh; and who carved our heroes into the face of Mount Rushmore.

Americans harnessed electricity, split the atom, and gave the world the telephone and the Internet. We settled the Wild West, won two World Wars, landed American astronauts on the Moon and one day very soon, we will plant our flag on Mars.

We gave the world the poetry of Walt Whitman, the stories of Mark Twain, the songs of Irving Berlin, the voice of Ella Fitzgerald, the style of Frank Sinatra the comedy of Bob Hope, the power of the Saturn V rocket, the toughness of the Ford F-150 and the awesome might of the American aircraft carriers.”

    Reddit recently reported that most voters are unaware of 0’s and Bidet’s involvement in the FBI investigation of the Trump campaign and the unredacted evidence.
    I wonder why?

    I’m going to split hairs. Artificial nuclear fission was first demonstrated by an Irish physicist and a British physicist. The concept of a chain reaction was postulated by a Hungarian,who advised against publishing papers The concept for an atomic weapon originated in the U.K., USA and Nazi Germany. The concept of the internet started with DARPAnet, but the World Wide Web depended on a British invention for the protocol.
    The telephone was a multinational invention, but it was a Scotsman who made the first telephone that we would recognise, albeit in the USA. Whilst acknowledging the role of the USA in both world wars, there were other nations on the allied side who played a not insignificant role.

    • Bruce John Bailey says:

      It is true that the US was a little late in joining both war efforts but their allies are very grateful that they did. Australians who have any knowledge of the WW2 years have enormous gratitude to the Yanks as our the UK was unable to help and was prepared to leave us to the tender mercies of a Japanese military invasion.
      Whilst it is true that many inventions were made outside the US, it was the US entrepreneurs that used those inventions, engineered and marketed them to benefit us all.

    • Crispin in Waterloo says:

      The telephone was invented in Brantford Ontario, 1876, just a few minutes down the road from me. The first long distance call was from Brantford to Paris Ontario, 1876. First “experimental” exchange built in Boston, 1877. The world’s first world’s telephone exchange installed by Bell in New Haven, Conn, January 1878, first in the British Empire in Hamilton, Ontario, March 1878, the first public telephone was installed in Lancefield’s Stationery Store, Hamilton, Ontario in 1881.

      He build a working light-beam controlled semiconductor (selenium) modulated telephone in the 1870’s. Talk about “ahead of his time”.

      Bell was a Scottish-born Canadian who took American citizenship and filed patents in the USA to compete with Edison (who invented 4-plex communication on a single wire, BTW). Later he returned to Canada where he lived out his days. I am not sure of his citizenship per date. He lived in London from the age of 15 and moved to the US from Brantford when he was 39. In those days they didn’t care so much about where you were from.

      Incidentally Encyclopedia Britannica and Wikipedia do not agree on the timeline of the filing of Bell’s patent and Elisha Gray’s patent caveat.

    Calder Hall in the U.K. was the first commercial nuclear power generating plant.

  4. Noel Herron says:

    A wonderful speech by President trump and I hope he is reelected in November , but I must mention two great men Earnst Rutherford and Alessondro Volta.

  5. G W Smith says:

    The left sees only what is in their own hearts. And it’s not a pleasant sight.

    • Disillusioned says:

      Bingo!

      That NYT tweet was psychological projection on steroids. The Left are frightened when their insane gain-more-control Agenda is threatened with peaceful, rational, libertarian speech. Especially from a President of the United States who does not go along with their Agenda. This president has been nothing but rational, and kind toward the American people. This frightens them. Fortunately, rational, critical thinkers see through it. Only their ignorant sheeple followers believe their propaganda.

      The one dynamic to be frightened of is when the Left are out of control. As they are now – they are incredibly dark and divisive.

  6. BartR says:

    There are not words to describe how utterly pathetic the Left has become. It’s impossible to use logic in a debate or discussion when only one party is willing to see both sides of an argument. QUIT COMPROMISING WITH THESE PEOPLE! They’ll never be satisfied until they’ve destroyed the USA.

  7. Susan says:

    Anyone else find it strange that the terms “dark and divisive” was the terms that Killary used the day after President Trump was elected for what she expected his Presidency would be.

  8. Lurch says:

    It is really, really telling that the NYT sees a beautiful speech glorifying the incredible deeds, accomplishments, and achievements of the USA as “dark and divisive.”

    The NYT hates America, but it really, REALLY hates Americans.

  9. Robert Gipson says:

    The New York Times also called for the invasion (destruction) of Iraq.

    Upon that invasion, Iraq was balkanized, sectarian fighting everywhere, a calculated, astro-turf civil war. Millions died. Pre-invasion, it had been a prosperous country, highest standard of living in the Mideast. Transformed nearly overnight…to the Stone Age.

    The same agenda has been carried out in other once-peaceful countries, such as the former Yugoslavia. And as usual, with the New York Times as cheerleader.

    See a trend here?

    Guess which country is next.

  10. George Davidson says:

    The Liberal press in the US and Canada should be crushed

    • Stephen Richards says:

      If you don’t buy their shit, they will be crushed. Even Soros can’t keep them all going for long without readers

  11. Steve Curwen says:

    You didnt give the World the Internet Doald, the British did..

  12. Mike says:

    Life in the echo chamber of the left…

  13. Charles Straw says:

    Such a great speech…neither dark nor divisive

    Regarding the upcoming election, I’ve been pondering whether Trump’s opponents realize that their gravy train of hate mongering will be gone, if Trump is defeated

    So many have built entire careers and cottage industries around their Trump bashing…what about the thousands of cable TV news shows and millions of YouTube programs that have been created solely to bash Orange Bad Man? A Trump defeat will render their cash flow moot

    I figure that if Trump is defeated, these outlets will spend the next two years re-living and fondly reminiscing about the “good old bad old Trump years”

    thanks Tony, for being a rock amidst the quicksand of idiocy

  14. nfw says:

    There’s a sad irony in one of the “famous” names Pres Trump rattled off: Mohammed Ali. The fighter once known as Cassius Clay (more later) changed his name to Muhammed Ali to celebrate his islimicness. The fact is however both Mohmmed and Ali were not just paedophiles, anti-Semites, liars, mass murderers, thieves, war mongers and all the other bad things in society, they were slave (sex and “normal”) owners and traders. How’s that for celebrating slavery? On the other had the real irony is that the fighter’s father named him Cassius Clay, after the great abolitionist Cassius Clay and he threw that symbol away. Then again we are talking an easily led low IQ I suppose.

  15. Disillusioned says:

    Speaking of “dark,” on the climate front, rather than looking at the non-corrupted data when presented, I see one dark and divisive Darrel Henschell on Twitter is working hard to protect his fragile paradigm and the corrupted datasets he worships – not by arguing the data, but by slandering Tony with old propaganda. That’s the one thing I did not resort to when I was arguing with climate skeptics. I wanted to understand the data. Tony is going to give him a chance for disillusionment – with data. A few finally get it. I see his type come and go.

    Henschell is such a novice, he worships Skepticalsceance and GISS and thinks they hold the key to trusted science. Well, I once thought they were good sites also – when I was incredibly ignorant of the topic. But, being naturally curious and inquisitive, I wanted to understand the discrepancies, and the motivations by both sides and their datasets. But, unlike Henschell, I chose to look at the raw data vs. the corrupted data (that I did not yet know was corrupted). That is what started me down my road to disillusionment (unbeknownst to me, in the beginning ).

    I thought that by gaining a better understanding about climate data, and about CO2, I would gain ammunition against the skeptics. But, the more I read, the opposite occurred. Was I surprised? Sure I was! To the point of becoming physically ill (a temporary condition that went away).

    I was a Democrat and believer in anything Democrat for 24 years. Curiosity and critical thinking is what causes some Democrats like me to #Walkaway. Once disillusioned, the veil lifted, and there is no going back to the darkness, and things began falling into place quickly.

    If you are reading this and are still a believer in the fairy tale of man-made, out-of-control, CO2-caused global warming (like I was), hit the links in the black area above, as well as the new stuff coming through. The beginning of disillusionment is tough. There will be back and forth confusion. It’s the first step in deprogramming. The dark side continue with their propaganda, constantly.

    Once you see and understand why their charts are bogus and begin to realize you have been believing a fairy tale, the cognitive dissonance may make you sick. I got sick. Deprogramming from years of brainwashing is tough. But keep on. Keep testing what they tell us, against the actual data. If you are honest with yourself, you will come out a disillusioned ex-believer. Like I.

    The weak person will not allow themselves to go through with it. It’s easier to keep watching the TV and listening to the radio and reading the tweets of your religious leaders. You’ve got to have a tough constitution – along with rigorous honesty and desire to understand the science (which “science” actually fits historical record). That is what you will need get you through to the other side.

    The real data – that most cult believers refuse to look at or understand – show us there is no CO2-caused climate emergency. The disillusionment that occurs as you come out on the other side will change your life.

    • KevinPaul says:

      Well said. Once those scales fall from your eyes you begin to recognise the same deceptive manipulation everywhere you look. What surprised me through all this covid sky is falling hype, is just how much medical science is corrupted through financial entanglements to pharma, and even corrupted just like climate science, with data manipulations, and decoy contrary publications, pal review, bullying, and academic institutional cronyism, industrially motivated financial incentives, political convergence, and meddling, undisclosed conflicts of interest….. ad nauseam.

  16. Davide says:

    I read many good parts in this speech.
    For example:
    “One of their political weapons is cancel culture, driving people from their jobs, shaming dissenters, and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees. This is the very definition of totalitarianism, and it is completely alien to our culture and to our values and it has absolutely no place in the United States of America.”
    .
    “This attack on our liberty, our magnificent liberty must be stopped and it will be stopped very quickly. We will expose this dangerous movement, protect our nation’s children from this radical assault, and preserve our beloved American way of life. In our schools, our newsrooms, even our corporate boardrooms, there is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted, and punished. It’s not going to happen to us.”
    .
    “Make no mistake. This left-wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American Revolution. In so doing they would destroy the very civilization that rescued billions from poverty, disease, violence, and hunger, and that lifted humanity to new heights of achievement, discovery, and progress. To make this possible, they are determined to tear down every statue, symbol, and memory of our national heritage.”
    .
    I think that these are the real point of today “discussion” and problems.
    It’s time to defend liberty, the liberty that Founding Fathers used to build Usa, from who want to destroy both.
    And yes, this is “far left fascism”. At all.
    This speech is “divisive” like a woman that doesn’t want to be raped.
    .
    I really hope Trump can do it, for all the civilized, and less civilized, countries in the world.
    The world needs a “good”, and strong, guide.
    Not China, not some socialist European Union every day more similar to Soviet Union.
    So, I am proud for you, and maybe this is important like Reagan period has been.

  17. Davide says:

    PS: do you know Q?
    Yesterday I saw this video from General Flynn:
    https://twitter.com/GenFlynn/status/1279590652200849409
    ending with “where we go 1 we go all”, clearly one of the main Q slogans.
    Maybe the Q story is realy true.
    I hope so. The whole world really needs to wake up, before it’s too late.

  18. Joel says:

    I think he should have mentioned DEET, bungie cords, and duct tape. But it was a good speech anyway.

  19. WhoKoo says:

    Inspiring speech. It should be noted, however, the splitting of the atom was first accomplished by Rutherford, a New Zealander.
    Friends and allies of varying strengths, depending on the belief systems of those filling leadership roles.

  20. Stewart Pid says:

    Breaking News: The New York Times sucks donkey dick!!

  21. Stephen Richards says:

    Bob Hope was born in Eltham, kent as it was back then. I went to school there. It is now in greater london S.E 9

  22. BallBounces says:

    The Left now believes any deviation in thought from what they believe at this moment is dark and divisive. Makes sense, since diversity demands conformity, inclusion necessitates exclusion, and tolerance brooks no dissent.

  23. Old Grumpus says:

    Time for Tony to track the bad louts murder epidemic sweeping the USA?
    When will it peak?
    How long will it take to subside?
    What measures are effective against it?

  24. tom0mason says:

    President Trump’s speech highlights that hard work coupled with an open and free competitive market place allows truly great things to happen. A market place where there will naturally be winners and losers. Only in a country where ‘free speech’ means allowing dissenting voices to be heard. A country where the pursuit of happiness is everyones’ right.
    ~~~~~~~
    The alternative idea is of government regulation and government dictating what is allowed to be developed. This leads to economic stagnation, social decay, and political recession and dictatorship. Such a system ensures the formation of an unmarket of no choice, where everyone loses except government officials and bureaucrats, and their corrupt industrial cronies. A country where ‘free speech’ means toeing the government line, while the pursuit of happiness is only for the elites within the government clique.
