Paul Ryan’s Spokesperson Renounces Support for Antifa

Reading Time: 1

It was probably a coincidence.

One day after Hennessy’s View reported Speaker Paul “Dumbbell” Ryan as a member of the Antifa caliphate support team, Speaker Ryan’s office renounced his membership in the terrorist group’s fan club.

Paul “Dumbbell” Ryan

As reported by The Gateway Pundit:

Social media was set ablaze after Paul Ryan attacked President Trump for condemning ‘both sides’ for the violence in Charlottesville. Trump supporters hammered Paul Ryan for refusing to condemn Antifa. It turns out the shaming worked. Finally.

The pressure mounted on Speaker Ryan after left-wing lunatic Nancy Pelosi released a statement Tuesday condemning Antifa violence in Berkeley.

Many people are asking two questions about Ryan’s belated comments on Antifa:

  1. What the hell took so long?
  2. Why hasn’t Ryan himself denounced Antifa?

And I’ll throw out one more question that I know you’re asking yourself:

  1. Did Hennessy’s View influence the Ryan spokesperson’s comments?

While we wait for the Speaker to answer these questions, we look toward Mitt Romney. Will Mittens join Ryan and Nancy Pelosi in denouncing Antifa’s terrorism? What about John “Song Bird” McCain?

Do you think Ryan, McCain, and Romney really supported Antifa? Or were they just afraid to voice their fear and loathing of Antifa? I can’t decide.

Who Can Stop the Antifa Caliphate?

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Yesterday, I explained the military strategy behind Antifa’s remarkable growth.

In case you didn’t realize it, Antifa has effectively shut down grass roots conservative speech. You cannot hold a public rally, march, or carnival if your views conflict with Antifa’s.

Antifa has established a small caliphate in North America. Just like ISIS did in Syria and Iraq.

And the government’s doing absolutely nothing about it. You should read my military strategy post and all the links. They’re important.

The government’s not doing anything about this state within a state.

Conservatives can’t do anything about it. We can help, but we can’t do it alone.

The NRA, the National Review, and Tucker Carlson can’t do anything about.

The GOP won’t do anything about it. Hell, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and John McCain are Antifa allies. Try to find a single GOP leader willing denounce Antifa. Will Ann Wagner?

But one group can save us from the Antifa caliphate. An unlikely group. A group you’d never believe could be the heroes of this terrifying story.

Who’s this group? Who will save America? Who will preserve Western Civilization? Christendom? Judaism?

Not the Right.

Not the Center.

Not the Great “Undecided” Voter.

No, if you want to be saved, look left, young man. Look left.

The left can save us.

Not the “leftists.” Not the progressives. They’re on Antifa’s side. (Until Antifa turns on them.)

But liberals.

Our friendly liberals.

Liberals like Alan Dershowitz.

Liberals like Dennis Prager.

Liberals like the great campus free-speech activists of the 1960s.


Liberals who believe in the power of ideas.

Liberals who believe their ideas are so excellent that open debate can only help their cause.

Liberals who say “I’m okay; you’re okay.” (Progressives say, “I’m okay, you’re wrong, and you’ll be punished for your wrongness.”)

Oh, how I long for the liberalism of my youth.

Once upon a time, I argued for hours in the Caf at Fontbonne or the Rat at Wash U. Arguing with liberals.

We’d argue about Reagan. We’d argue about the military. We’d argue about William F. Buckley. We’d argue about art and literature and philosophy and the price of beer and the virtues of rap music and Indica vs. sativa.

Sometimes, we’d get angry, me and those long-lost liberals. We’d be mad at each other. We’d shout. We’d raise our voices. We’d call in friends for support. We’d rope in strangers for support.

Then a cute girl would walk by and we’d forget the argument, induce her to join us, and sit with our puny arms draped over the back of the chair to make our biceps look bigger. (It totally works.)

That doesn’t happen anymore. (Well, I still have tricks to make my biceps look bigger.)

If tomorrow I woke up my 19-year-old self, enrolled in a local college, wearing my Trump hoodie on my way to Rhetoric class, I’d get my ass beat before I got out of my 1970 Chevy Impala.

If I weren’t beat up, I’d get hauled before some Soviet-style Central Committee for Community Sensibilities where a parade of my peers would fabricate a long string of offenses I’d supposedly committed. Offenses against humanity. Offenses from which They Must Be Protected!

Hate speech.

Hate hats.

Hate hoodies.

Hate! Hate! Hate!

The Comitet* would find me guilty of offending Millennials and sentence me to banishment from the campus, loss of my scholarship, and acceleration of my library fines.

In 1983, liberals encouraged and demanded free speech. Conservatives did, too. We defended each other against attempts to shut down free speech.

In 2017, free speech is crime. A crime punishable by vigilantes and terrorist Antifa thugs.

I think America still contains a few good liberals. I know. I heard Alan Dershowitz on Adam Carolla recently. I hear Dennis Prager on Carolla all the time.

William F. Buckley’s best friend was socialist (and liberal) Professor John Kenneth Galbraith. They sailed together, vacationed together, and argued together. They agreed on almost nothing political. But they appreciated each other’s company, brilliance, and right to promote their beliefs.

Buckley and Galbraith each believed his ideas were superior. They each believed their own ideas, given proper exposure, would sway huge numbers to their side.

[Read Buckley’s obituary for Galbraith. It will warm your heart.]

Only Buckley was right. (Reagan won. Galbraith died before American voters elected George McGovern.)

Today, they’d both be hunted down, beaten, and possibly killed by Antifa. Buckley for being a “Nazi.” Galbraith for hanging around with him.

(Buckley threatened to punch Gore Vidal in the nose for calling Buckley a Nazi. Buckley was a WWII vet. On our side.)

Conservatives can’t win this battle alone.

We need the liberals.

I miss the liberals.

Send in the liberals.

*Comitet is a rough phonetic spelling of the common Russian term for the Committee for State Security.

A Military Strategist’s View of Antifa

Reading Time: 4 minutes

If equally matched, we can offer battle; if slightly inferior in numbers, we can avoid the enemy; if quite unequal, we can flee from him.

If we wish to fight, the enemy can be forced to an engagement even though he be sheltered behind a high rampart and a deep ditch. All we need do is attack some other place that he will be obliged to relieve.

Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.

—Sunzi. The Art of War. Public Domain Books. Kindle Edition.

Let’s look at Antifa logically, without the blinding rage of emotion. Take a deep breath and let these words sink in.

Pretend both Antifa and the wretched white supremacists in Charlottesville are neither good nor bad. Neither your enemy nor your ally. Make believe, instead, they are opposing feudal Chinese princes and their armies. Pretend Charlottesville is in black and white, grainy, long ago. Like stories in a fifth grader’s history book. Distant and small.

Neither faction can hurt you. You are protected by generations of history between you and those ancient combatants. You are safe and secure.

Now, look at Antifa’s tactics.

  • First, Antifa’s political arm declares war on statues.
  • Next, a certain element comes out of hiding to defend those statues.
  • Then, Antifa swoops in for battle.
  • The only death in the fray is a non-combatant (by all accounts to date) Antifa sympathizer, at the hands of Antifa’s enemy.
  • In the aftermath, politicians and pundits side with Antifa, declaring their actions and motives noble and virtuous. Those politicians and pundits curse Antifa’s enemies, declaring the enemies evil and deserving of Antifa’s attacks.

Antifa followed up its Charlottesville victory with vicious attacks on non-combatants in Berkeley, California. In between, Antifa forces attacked an innocent man in Colorado. And Antifa terrorized Trump supporters in Seattle.

In each of these guerrilla attacks, Antifa indicated that it considers anyone with political views the conflict with their political views “fascists,” “white supremacists,” “Nazis,” or “KKK.”

To find Antifa’s strategy, we need to look at its growth from a higher view point. We have to see the alliances Antifa’s formed. Here are just a few of Antifa’s allies:

  • Jake Tapper, Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon, and other CNN employees
  • Numerous reporters and editors at the New York Times
  • MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and others
  • Senator Bernie Sanders
  • Rep. Maxine Waters
  • Many rank and file Democrats
  • Senator John McCain
  • Speaker Paul Ryan
  • Mitt Romney
  • Apple CEO Tim Cook
  • Other powerful establishment Republicans

(Note: Nancy Pelosi has condemned, in writing, Antifa’s violence. Nancy’s on our side.)

Breitbart’s John Nolte explained on Breitbart’s daily SiriusXM show recently:

The media is part of the Antifa conspiracy because you can see it. You can see it across all media platforms: the ever-expanding definition of the ‘alt-right,’ the ever-expanding definition of ‘hate speech,’ the Southern Poverty Law Center labeling opposition to same-sex marriage ‘hate speech’ – which, by extension, labels the Christian church a hate group. As the media says ‘maybe it’s OK to commit violence against Nazis and the alt-right and haters,’ they’re also expanding the definition of the alt-right and hate to include traditional conservative views.

Antifa’s strategy is starting emerge. See it yet?

Alliances plus tactics give us an indication of an the strategy an army is pursuing. As Clausewitz wrote in On War:

Strategy has been defined as “the employment of the battle as the means toward the attainment of the object of War.”

So what is the object of Antifa’s war?

Attacks before and after Charlottesville hint at Antifa’s tactics: terrorism. But terrorism is not a strategy. Legally, terrorism is the use of violence or threat of violence to advance a political goal. But we still don’t know Antifa’s goal.

Or do we?

Antifa’s Charlotte tactics were brilliant. Straight out The Art of War. Antifa’s tactical battle went like this:

  1. Assess your strength relative to the enemy’s.
  2. Attack a place the enemy will be obliged to relieve.
  3. Be assured of victory before the battle begins.

Sun Tsu couldn’t have designed a better battle.

The Battle of Charlotteville earned Antifa some of those important new allies: John McCain, Paul Ryan, and many other prominent Republicans.

By securing the support of prominent Republicans, Antifa was free to attack more sympathetic targets: peace activists, Christians, everyday conservatives. Back to that John Nolte interview on Breitbart:

One of the great undercovered stories during the whole Charlottesville episode was that the day after Charlottesville, in another city – I think it was Seattle – a bunch of Trump supporters held a rally, and Antifa also went over there and beat the hell out of those people, and shut them down. Those weren’t neo-Nazis. Those weren’t neo-Confederates. Those were just Trump supporters, and violence was used to shut them up and to stop it, and the media just doesn’t care.

And now we can start to see Antifa’s strategy. We can see its alliances. We can see its tactics. We can see it in Antifa’s progression.

We can see Antifa’s strategy in its allies’ words and actions, in the propaganda campaign. We can see Antifa’s strategy in the political tactic of declaring war on statues.

We can see Antifa’s strategy clearly.

Antifa has an end game.

Antifa has an alliance.

Antifa has a proven set of tactics.

Antifa’s strategy is identical to ISIS’s.

Antifa wants to give every American a choice:

  1. Submit or
  2. die.

Like ISIS Antifa wants to destroy icons representing freedom, progress, science, history. Like ISIS, Antifa wants the masses to fear their retribution. Like ISIS, Antifa wants to establish its own kind of caliphate in North America.

Maybe they don’t want an Islamic state. Probably not. But they’ll use Islamists to advance their strategy.

But that’s Antifa’s strategy: elimination of competing thoughts. Elimination of competing ideas. Elimination of competing ideologies. Elimination of competing statues.

And, like ISIS, Antifa justifies any means to achieve its end. Because few will stand up to terror. Very few.

As a student of military strategy, I admire what Antifa’s done. They’re close to establishing a state within a state, just as ISIS did in Iraq and Syria.They’ve won allies from their natural enemy: the party that supposedly stands for freedom, liberty, and the American way. It commands most of the major media and the leadership of both major political parties.

There is one major difference between ISIS and Antifa. And it’s a terrifying difference.

ISIS has a powerful enemy in the United States and its allies.

Antifa has no declared enemy. Disorganized, individual enemies, sure. But Antifa operates unopposed right now.

Will the Trump administration grow a pair and declare war on this domestic enemy? And, if not Trump, who?

President Trump’s Only Failure

Reading Time: 2 minutes

You know this blog rarely criticizes President Trump. There’s a simple reason for that. That reason is the thousands of fraudulent journalists who create and repeat lies about President Trump every day. Like Jake “The Fake” Tapper. Those fake journalists don’t need my help.

You also know that I have criticized President Bush, Republican candidates for president, and many, many other Republicans and conservatives. I just adopted a simple rule last year: until the fake news media treats President Trump honestly and fairly, I won’t criticize my president.

Until now. Now, I’m suspending my policy for a moment.

I’ve had enough of President Trump’s inaction. Inaction in the face of injustice. Inaction on a basic duty of the president. Inaction that’s inexcusable.

President Trump has done nothing to protect American from the Antifa terrorist group. 

Over the weekend, Antifa terrorists stalked, beat, and assaulted peace activists. Antifa terrorists attacked without interference from police at any level. 

It looked like this.

The police actually arrested some of the victims. Probably for their own protection.

President Trump failed to protect American citizens from domestic terrorists, 

Some people support Antifa terrorism. Those who support Antifa cite the terrorists’ professed hatred of Nazis.

I hate Nazis, too. You do, too, I imagine. I don’t know anyone who likes Nazis. My dad and my uncles fought Nazis in World War II.

The problem is, Antifa has given itself the power to decide who’s a Nazi.

To Antifa, I’m a Nazi. You’re a Nazi. Priests and ministers, rabbis, and veterans are Nazis in the eyes of Antifa terrorists. Everybody who’s not Antifa is a Nazi to Antifa.

And fake news people like Chris Cuomo likes Antifa terrorists deciding who’s a Nazi. Cuomo would probably encourage Antifa to kill those Nazis, even if they’re not really Nazis. Cuomo likes vigilantes and domestic terrorists.

Why hasn’t President Trump acted to protect peace activists trying to hold a peace rally? A peace rally that was interrupted by Antifa terrorists? And, not just peace activists. Americans have a right to hold war rallies if they do it peaceably. The nature of the rally doesn’t matter. Rallies are guaranteed. “Congress shall make no law . . . ” and all that. Remember? The First Amendment calls is the right to peaceably assemble.

You can’t make America great again while tolerating Antifa terrorism.

I call on President Trump to activate the national guard of states where Antifa threatens the First Amendment rights of Americans. And if the governor of the state refuses to cooperate, send in the Army, the Marines, the SEALs.

Whatever it takes to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. It’s President Trump’s job to do it now.
