  1. “He has the chutzpah, after Vladimir Putin rigged his election as president,”

    This has not been proven and is not factual. I realize you cannot moderate or ban yourself.

    1. @Shaul: Um, three U. S. Intelligence agencies & 80% of the American people believe it. The intel agencies also have proof on which their conviction is based. So it is you who isn’t factual. So don’t make this false claim again.

      1. Sources?
        If there were enough sources, proof etc legal action and impeachment proceedings would have already started.
        What seems to be happening is that more serious anomalies are being revealed on the misdoings of the Dems.

        1. @ shaul: You appear not to understand how justice works in the U.S. We have the rule of law here unlike your country. We have a special counsel who takes his work exceedingly seriously. It’s not a capricious matter to impeach a president or charge him with crimes. IT is an arduous legal task taking months if not a year or more. But I assure you, there will be results. And they will irrefutably prove all of these reports. You’ve only seen the tip of this iceberg and global warming can’t even make it melt away.

          You mean “misdeeds.” THere is no word “misdoings.”

          1. @ shaul: You are right. “Misdoings” is a word but it is used in very limited situations and requires some nuance to know what those situations are. It usually has to do with someone flagrantly breaking the law in some way, rather than a simple ‘misdeed,’ which is more general.

  2. I didn’t like the Frum article at all and at times he too is quite devious.

    This is the Wardaw Ghetto Uprising memorial – photo.

    President Trump avoided a visit to this memorial and send his First Daughter Ivanka. Trump held his speech at the smaller Krasinski Square.

    From my diary:
    “Donald #Trump is the first American president since 1989 to visit Warsaw without visiting the monument to the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.”

  3. What do you make of the WSJ editorial lauding the Warsaw speech as a “defining speech,” “a determined and affirmative defense of the Western tradition”?
    Both you and Frum (Frum more than you) seem to take a mostly ad hominem stance in the context of this speech. I wholeheartedly share your attitude towards Trump, who’s a vile, hypocritical, and most probably a corrupt human being, whose actions and Tweets speak louder than any words he might utter in a single speech overseas.
    Then again, this speech does seem to deviate from his usual inflamed and inflammatory rhetoric. Which is why it would be interesting – this time – to analyze his words outside of the personal context.

    1. @ Yaniv: I don’t generally react to WSJ editorials (as opposed to news stories, which are far more credible). If you want to know what neocons or the alt-right think, then read the WSJ editorial page. If not, don’t.

      As to “ad hominem,” go look the word up. You don’t know what it means.

      The speech doesn’t at all depart from his usual inflammatory rhetoric. It was just couched in grander phrases (written for him by Bannon & Miller). But they were just as incendiary as every other piece of crap that comes out of his mouth.

      it would be interesting – this time – to analyze his words outside of the personal context.

      You’re daft. I analyzed his words within a political context. You may not like the context, but I did just what you claimed I didn’t. Which tells us a whole lot more about you than me.

  4. Maybe the “oppressive ideology…that seeks to export terrorism and extremism all around the globe” to which Trump was referring is zionism…

  5. “. . . the 15th century Battle of Vienna, when the Ottoman Turks were stopped at the gates of Europe.”

    The two important struggles between Europeans and Turks occurred later than the 15th century. One siege of Vienna was staged by Turks in 1529; the final repelling of the Ottoman Turks who were besieging Vienna, by King John Sobieski of Poland, occurred in 1683.




      1. Actually, Richard, you were partly right. The Ottoman Turks WERE stopped at the gates of Europe in the 15th century — just not at Vienna, but at Constantinople:
        “[T]he capture of the capital of the Byzantine Empire by an invading army of the Ottoman Empire [occurred] on 29 May 1453.”
        My slip — I forgot about that one!
