TOP GUN: MAVERICK—A Movie, And Military, That America Deserves

There’s a moment in Top Gun: Maverick where you forget you’re watching a movie, and instead realize you are watching the words of poet Alfred Lord Tennyson come to life:

Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Pete “Maverick” Mitchell and Tom “Iceman” Kazansky, enemies turned wingmen/ lifelong friends in 1986’s Top Gun, have aged 30 years. Tom Cruise’s iconic Maverick is a Captain, considered the best pilot the Navy has since he shot down three MIGs in the first movie, who has spent his years as test pilot, refusing to accept promotion because it would ground him. Val Kilmer’s blond-hair / blue-eyed Iceman, right, is now an Admiral, in charge of the Pacific Fleet.

Iceman has used his position and power to protect Maverick since the events of the first movie and has given him one final order: train a group of the top graduates of Top Gun—the school where the top one percent of Naval Aviators go to see who is the best of the best—for what amounts to a suicide mission: destroying the fortified military base of a rogue country (strangely never identified), where it’s seeking to enrich uranium.

It’s highly probable that none of the young aviators Maverick is tasked with training will return from this deadly mission. To heighten the drama, one of the aviators is the son of his dead RIO—Radar Intercept Officer—Nick “Goose” Bradshaw, killed in the first movie trying to eject from a malfunction in the F-14 that Maverick was flying.

Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho in 1960 and John Frankenheimer’s The Manchurian Candidate in 1962 were two of the most brilliantly made movies of their time, both in black-and-white with Freudian incest themes. Personally, I don’t like Psycho, but I’m not a fair judge because I don’t like horror movies. I think The Manchurian Candidate is one of the movies that works the best of all those I’ve ever seen,...

Earlier: Venezuelan Immigrant Says UK, US Share Same Destiny, Both Mortally Threatened By Great Replacement

Regardless of what the next “current thing” is, the mass migration onslaught continues apace. The U.S. southern border is under assault by the usual suspects—illegal alien invaders, drug traffickers, human smugglers, and all manner of multinational subversives—because of the treason of the Biden Regime. Perhaps more surprisingly, a similar situation is developing in the U.K., despite the fact that Brexit freed the British government from the constraints imposed by membership in the European Union.

As I’ve previously touched on, the mother civilization of the U.S. in the United Kingdom faces a surprisingly similar threat of demographic replacement via mass migration. Since the end of World War II, the U.K.’s immigration policy had been centered on importing non-white migrants. And like the U.S.’s Ruling Class, the British political elites have shown no indication of restricting mass migration anytime soon.

Directly prior to Brexit, the U.K. was peculiar in that it primarily attracted migrants from Eastern Europe. However, as UnHerd Senior Editor Ed West has observed, in recent years the U.K. has reverted to the neoliberal Blair era in terms of its importation of non-white immigrants [The Brexiteers had one job, by Ed West, Substack, April 21, 2022].

None of this non-white immigration influx was a coincidence.

Ideology is political religion, said the conservative sage Russell Kirk.

And what is the defining dogma of the political religion, or ideology, of America in 2022?

Is it not that, "All men are created equal"?

Yet, as with every religion, a basic question needs first to be asked and answered about this defining dogma of liberal ideology.

Is it true? Are all men truly created equal? Are all races and ethnic groups equal? Are men and women equal? Are all religions equal? Or do we simply agree to accept that as true—and treat them all equally?

All Americans, we agree, have the same God-given rights to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," the same constitutional rights in the Bill of Rights, and the same civil rights, enshrined in federal law.

But where is the historic, scientific or empirical proof of the defining dogma of American democracy that "all men are created equal"?

Thomas Jefferson, the statesman who immortalized the words, did not believe in equality, let alone equity. How he lived his life testifies to this disbelief.

When he wrote the Declaration of Independence that contained the famous words, Jefferson was a slave owner. In that document, he speaks of the British as "brethren" connected to us by "ties of our common kindred," ties of blood.

But not all of those fighting against us were the equals of the British.

There were, Jefferson wrote, those "merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions."

In an 1815 letter to John Adams, Jefferson celebrated "a natural aristocracy among men. The grounds of this are virtue and talents ... The natural aristocracy

Liberals are screwing over African Americans again, sublimely confident that whatever they do, Democrats will never get less than 90% of the black vote.

In the Buffalo, New York, mass shooting 10 days ago, 18-year-old Payton S. Gendron drove 200 miles to a grocery store jam-packed with the descendants of American slaves and gunned down as many people as he could. But instead of this being an anti-black thing, the media have decided, no, it’s an anti-immigrant thing, based on the shooter’s belief in the “great replacement theory,” which holds that elites are deliberately replacing historic Americans with immigrants.

Trust us, it’s all in his “manifesto”—and no, you can’t see it. What? You don’t trust the media to tell you the truth about the shooter’s motive?

Still, I can’t help but notice that the shooter seemed really intent on killing black people. He drove 3 1/2 hours from Conklin, New York, to get to a city with remarkably few immigrants. Only 10% of Buffalo is foreign-born. But it’s 35% black.

Much closer to Conklin than Buffalo is, for example, Middletown, New York, which is 39% Hispanic and 16% foreign-born. In about half the time it took to get to Buffalo, he also could have driven to Utica, New York, which is 22% foreign-born. And he would have cut his driving time by more than an hour if he’d gone to Schenectady, New York, 17% foreign born.

So why are the media insisting that the killer hated immigrants, when it kinda looks like he mainly hated blacks?

For one thing, midterm elections are coming, and voters are poised

Earlier: The U.S. Military Is Woke—Patriots Must Demand Court Martials, Forced Retirements

A year ago this month, a comparison of military recruitment ads from China, Russia and the U.S. went viral on social media. Our foreign competitors wooed their potential enlistees with muscular appeals to national pride and protection of the traditional nuclear family. A U.S. Army promotional campaign, by contrast, featured a pastel-hued cartoon depiction of a female soldier named "Emma" who marched in a gay pride parade with her two mothers and became a soldier to "shatter some stereotypes."

Wokeness is a terminal cancer in our armed forces, eroding the foundational bones of its honor-bound institutions and ravaging the core values of generations of America's frontline fighters. Integrity, honor, personal courage, excellence and commitment to truth have been subjugated to the progressive false gods of diversity, equity and inclusion. Who needs outside threats to our troops when the most lethal saboteurs are embedded inside the bowels of our own Pentagon and service academies?

"Diversity," of course, is exclusively defined by selective skin color and politically correct pronouns. "Equity" is a farce if you are white, male, Christian and patriotic. "Inclusion" is a grand illusion. Nowhere are these toxic realitie

The latest white-cop-murders-innocent-black-man hoax is just like the rest. The white cop stopped a “black motorist,” who resisted arrest until the cop was forced to shoot. It was an “execution,” we’re told, by Michael Tomasky [Tweet him] below, and also the perp's  family, and the usual suspects, including race-hustling, Hate Hoax black lawyer Benjamin Crump, want the cop fired and prosecuted. That hasn’t happened, but don’t be surprised if and when it does. Patrick Lyoya is another George Floyd, we are to believe; Grand Rapids policeman Christopher Schurr, another Derek Chauvin. Well, he will be if prosecutors stage another show trial and punish him for doing his job!

The trouble for the 31-year-old Schurr began on April 4 when he pulled over Lyoya, a 26-year-old criminal, because the license plate did not belong to the car. A second black man was a passenger. Lyoya either didn’t have or refused to produce his driver’s license and registration, and instead tried to run. Schurr caught him; Lyoya resisted—as black thugs always do. During the struggle, he grabbed Schurr’s taser and refused to let go. When Schurr pinned him to the ground, Lyoya continued resisting arrest, despite Schurr’s repeated, lawful commands. Then…boom. Schurr had no choice.

In the usual rerun, the Democrat Party–Mainstream Media Combine trying to railroad Schurr, boost its Defund the Police movement, get out the vote for 2022’s midterms in November, and, of course, continue its longtime terror campaign against whites in general and white cops in particular.

Let’s talk a little about Lyoya. He was a refugee from the Democratic Republic of the Congo who landed in the United States in 2014, undoubtedly without the knowledge of 99 percent of the good people of Grand Rapids. The refugee racketeers who imported him surely told
