Trump adopts policies of Lincoln, rather than Reagan

It’s time to re-Lincolnize the GOP

From time to time we post an exceptional column under the heading, “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter.”

Today we bring you a gem. “The Lincoln Model: How Trump Can Shut Down the Democratic Plantation.” Posted on Townhall, it Is excerpted from Dinesh D’Souza’s new book, “Death of a Nation.” His movie with the same title opens nationwide Friday, August 3.

We invite you to read this remarkable commentary on President Donald Trump, who more closely conforms to President Abraham Lincoln than to President Ronald Reagan on vital issues including immigration and tariffs.

D’Souza’s revealing expose on Democrats’ lies is illuminating. He writes,

“For too long conservatives and Republicans have allowed big lies to take over the culture and, in some cases, their minds. This progressive cultural hegemony has polluted our education system and our media with fake narratives and fake history. It has also created a kind of Stockholm syndrome among conservative intellectuals. “In our hearts we know we’re wrong.” But we’re not wrong. We’ve been lied to. It’s time for us to stop apologizing—we have nothing to apologize for—and go on the offensive. Truth is our deadliest weapon, if we will deploy it.”

And while we‘re on the topic of President Trump, the Washington Examiner headlines it’s report,Media blackout: Trump’s 60-point accomplishment list of ‘American Greatness,’” detailing the lack of media coverage of the achievements the Trump administration has racked up, both domestically and internationally, in its first 500 days. The list is bullet-pointed for ease in reading.

Today is a two-for-one-day. Enjoy!

    In discussing the similarities between Presidents Lincoln and Trump, especially on immigration, D’Souza makes his points brilliantly. I’ve never thought of Trump in this light before. Very well written article.

    As to the liberal media blackout on Trump, when they can’t belittle or lie about him, and the news is far better than they can tolerate, it is simply swept under the rug. Libs would rather suffer economically and globally than admit that Pres. Trump is an effective leader.

    Excellent articles, SRAZ. I’m a big Dinesh D’Souza fan and have already made plans with friends to see his latest movie this coming week. We’re just waiting for listings of locations and times that work for all of us.

    My brother-in-law has a sister who is a Colorado liberal transplanted in Scottsdale. She sent him a link to an Arizona Repulsive newspaper article, which he forward to me. I won’t compound the insult (from her…not him) by linking to it here. Suffice it to say it was a lengthy article posing as information about the highest paid corporate heads in Arizona. Reading the report, it soon became clear what the actual intent was when the words INCOME INEQUALITY. jumped out.

    Apparently the Repulsive adheres to the Marxist concept, “From each according to his ability, to each according to their need.” This is wealth redistribution in its purist form.

    We are not all equal, in education, ability or even drive. Some of us are endowed with talents others are unable to conceive of in their wildest dreams. The idea that the wealthy should be hated is foreign to me. I was raised thinking success was something to aspire to.

    Now ignorant college students, taught by leftist professors, say they prefer this failed system that paid ditch diggers and scientists exactly the same, killing all incentive.

    One of our problems is that we don’t have a true constitutional conservative who will speak out for us and our beliefs. We have lots of “conservatives” who say one thing but will cave as soon as the first sign of pressure is applied.

    I will join the parade with my pitch fork and torch as soon as a leader of the parade is known. Yes, Trump is standing firm and I agree with him, however, the other “conservatives” have run for the hills. There isn’t a politician around that is worth a bucket of warm spit.
