As cultural revolutionaries in and out of government take a sledgehammer to our living core -- our history, ancestry, memory and imagination -- we see quickly there is no end to their rapacious will to destroy Us, the People. Last week, it was Robert E. Lee in a park; this week, it's Christopher Columbus in a circle. Soon, it will be George Washington as a capital. There is no end in sight to this American Cultural Revolution, not while its leading edge of hysteria is still building.

Across the pond, jealous cultural revolutionaries are considering some cleansing of their own by possibly removing the statue (above) of one of Britain's greatest heroes, Lord Nelson, from London's Trafalgar Square -- named for the epic sea Battle of Trafalgar, which Nelson won, and where he perished.

There is no finer United States Marine officer than Major Fred C. Galvin (ret.), a veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars -- including hard-won battles against the failed senior command leadership at Bati Kot and Sangin. Thus, I can think of no better man to ask for a reaction to President Trump's announcement last night to send more troops to Afghanistan.

So I did.

Here is what Maj. Galvin wrote.

Hello Diana,

Thank you for asking. 

President Trump broke his promise to the American people and military personnel in the worst way.

Tonight, President Trump is expected to announce a new and supposedly improved American military committment to The Islamic Quagmire Republic of Afghanistan.

There is no such thing.

I will reserve further comment until after the president's announcement. Meanwhile, this possible turning point seems like an apt moment to reflect on Candidate Trump's "America First"
foreign policy in the form of an address I gave last summer on the subject, which was recently published by the Journal of Strategy and Politics.

Here it is: America First: 1940-2016.pdf



I confess to some puzzlement over the framework of Dinesh D'Souza's new book, which I recently picked up. It's called The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left. 

Whither the Communist roots of the American Left? Seemingly gone in a Sieg Heil, along with FDR's admiration for (and manipulation by) "Uncle Joe" Stalin and the rest, although I will have to wait and see how it all comes out.

D'Souza sets out to "turn the tables on the Democratic Left and show that they -- not Trump --are the real fascists. They are the ones who use Nazi bullying and intimidation tactics and subscribe to a full-blown fascist ideology."  

But who are the "real fascists" anyway? Nazism,...

Circa's Sara Carter dusted off a February 20, 2017 Washington Times story and re-launched it on Twitter.

Headline: "Ex-Obama national security adviser to McMaster: Get rid of Bannon-led group"

The story doesn't resonate anew so much as throb violently.  

Back in February, the Wash Times reported:

Former Obama national security adviser Susan E. Rice on Monday urged her new counterpart in the Trump White House, Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, to get rid of a national security wing led by presidential strategist Stephen Bannon.

“Hope you will be able to choose your team, have direct reporting and daily access to POTUS, and can eliminate Strategic Initiatives Group,” Ms. Rice wrote in a congratulatory note to Lt. Gen....
