Ronnie knew best

I’M ALMOST finished with H. W. Brands’ biography of Ronald Reagan. I recommend it to you.

I invariably voted Democrat during Reagan’s times, and I wasn’t a fan of his due to being duped by the left-wing news media of which I was a card-carrying member. Oh, the shame!

But the dawn of the 21st century, my move to Mexico and my higher tortilla intake caused my intelligence quotient to soar, and Reagan now makes perfect sense.

This is one of those countless things from the past that seem so relevant today. The speech was delivered during Barry Goldwater’s 1964 presidential campaign. Reagan was simply stumping for Goldwater, but this speech put Reagan on the path that led to his own win of the presidency in 1980.

It is a famous speech with reason.

One wonders what Reagan would make of the tragic societal disintegration occurring in the United States as a result of political correctness and the glorifying of multiculturalism and its resulting and increasing bloodshed.

The Soviet Union did not threaten the United States half as much as “Black Lives Matter,” Weepy Barry and — on the horizon but creeping closer — savage Mohammedans who are endlessly discounted by America’s ruling class.

The cluelessness of Barry

Barry

THE PERCEPTIVE among you might have noticed that I’ve not bashed Barry of late. That’s because I’ve mostly given up on him. He’s beyond redemption and, probably, the United States is beyond it too. Every great nation has its day in the sunshine, and that day has passed for America.

The 20th Century was its moment of glory. Gone now. Poof!

Lame-duck Barry recently asked, hilariously, for higher taxes and more government spending. Of course, the nation is already foundering in bloody red financial seas. And I see that Barry spoke at a “National Prayer Breakfast” yesterday where he said Christians — like Mohammedans — also have a horrific history.

The Crusades, you know. We’re just as nasty as they are.

Of course, the Crusades mostly ended in the 13th Century. The Mohammedans still live in the Middle Ages and, apparently, so does Barry at times.

The world faces murderous Mohammedan fanaticism, something Barry cannot even put into words.

And yet, something like 40 percent of Americans still think he’s doing a swell job.

It all reeks of the last days of Rome.
