Virgil: On This Memorial Day, Breitbart Readers Remember and Look to the Future

In a March 17 piece, “Donald Trump, Rosie the Riveter, and the Revival of American Economic Nationalism,” Virgil took note of President Trump’s speech, two days earlier, recalling the B-24 plant at Willow Run, Michigan. And that article brought forth an outpouring of WW2 memories from Breitbart readers, many of them recording what they had heard, over the years, from fathers, mothers, and other loved ones who lived, worked, and fought in that era. Virgil sifted through all the comments, more than 1800 of them; these left him inspired, informed, amused, and, okay, sometimes bemused. On this Memorial Day, let’s take a look at some of these comments from Breitbart readers.

Peter Navarro on TTIP: Trump Administration ‘Prefers Bilateral Deals’, NAFTA Will Be Replaced or Scrapped

Dr. Peter Navarro, assistant to U.S. President Donald J. Trump and Director of the White House National Trade Council, has hinted on Breitbart News Daily that recent comments concerning the revival of a U.S./EU trade deal are off-base. He confirmed the administration “prefers bilateral deals” and a similar North American trade agreement is due for the chopping block.

Virgil: Trump Connects to the Taproot of American Economic Nationalism with Henry Clay’s ‘American System’

In his March 20 speech in Louisville, Kentucky, President Trump sounded many familiar and important themes, including the importance of jobs, manufacturing, trade, and the need to revive the coal industry. And yet he also added a new and larger “meta-theme,” namely, the urgency of building up our industrial strength for the sake of economic and national security. That meta-theme, we might observe, is the essence of the “American System” of Henry Clay.

POLLAK: Free Trade and the Conservative Intellectuals

Free trade enthusiasts who support President Trump are simply saying that his new approach deserves a chance. No one has abandoned free trade, and if the veterans of NeverTrump would put aside their wounded pride, they might see that there is less distance between them and the administration than they may care to admit.

Virgil: Trump’s Nationalist Vision vs. the Gospel of Globalism

It’s possible, perhaps even likely, that under President Trump we will once again become a nation for all Americans—even Middle Americans. We could yet be the “city on a hill” that Ronald Reagan so eloquent described. That is, a true center-right “Team America,” united in its determination to work hard and do well, with US citizens coming first. Of course, not everyone thinks that what happened on Election Day 2016 was a beautiful thing, because they have been living their lives according to a vision much different than Trump’s economic nationalism.

Exclusive — Ann Coulter Post-Election Review: Media Bias, ‘Fake News,’ and Burning Down the Conservative Establishment

Appearing on a special holiday edition of Breitbart News Daily with SiriusXM host Alex Marlow, columnist Ann Coulter talked about how the media got the election wrong, its obsession with de-legitimizing alternative media as “fake news,” and the need to rebuild a conservative Washington establishment that was as wrong-headed as the liberal media in 2016.
