The Losing Formula.

Poor Hillary knows perfectly well that blacks are not going to turn out for her in November in anything like the numbers they did Obama. She has completely alienated a large percentage of the Sanders faction. Some will vote for Trump, others will vote third party, others will just stay home.

Clearly the Islamists are on the offensive across Europe and here. Each new borrow will only produce more anger and more Trump voters.

Wikileaks is far from done. They are going to produce a slow steady stream of releases, each more damaging than the last.

Hillary will be on almost constant defense for the next three months. Elections are not one from the defensive position.

America as it had become under the last three decades of neocon, new world order globalists of both parties clearly hasn't worked out we for anyone but the 1/10 of 1% that inhabit the world Wall Street and Washington DC. Each successive year brings nothing but more instability, more debt and more atrophy and incompetence in government. Now each week brings more violence and death.

People aren't stupid, they can see it and they want some one to try and change it. They can also see that Hillary Clinton is hip deep in that very Wall Street and Washington establishment. Everybody knows it, hell she doesn't even deny it. She even trys to sell it as her "experience and strength". Problem for her is that fewer and fewer voters are buying her BS and that's why, short of a massive political blunder by Trump, Hillary is going to lose.

Hillary Gets Hoisted On Her Own Petard.

I have often stated that my displeasure with Mitt Romney was that I thought he is " to slick by half". Well now Hillary is finding out that she has been "to clever by half".

With wikileaks having exposed the hard evidence of what everyone with common sense already knew, she is going to be left to cook in her own juices. Where as she might have expected that 10 or 15% of Sanders's supporters might either defect to Trump or vote for a third party or just stay home, they are now fully enraged. Say what you will about Sanders being a 1960's CPUSA retread and the naivety or downright cluelessness of supporting him, Hillary will now be lucky to receive 10 to 15% of the Sanders supporter's votes. Given that they compromise between 35 and 40% of the voters in the just completed primaries, this spells doom for Hillary.

The desperation is already setting in. The DNC is going to accuse anyone and everyone for being behind the hack and leaked documents. Presently they are blaming the Russians. We can fully expect more victims to presented in the coming weeks.

Hillary's paranoia will rise to the fore. The nastiness of her campaign will be unprecedented. Anybody who thinks Trump used unscrupulous tactics had better hold on to their seats because they "ain't seen nothin' yet!"

The bitterness displayed in 2008 at being pushed aside by Obama will pale in comparison by what will be on full display at seeing her last hope for her lust for power turn to dust just as the General election campaign begins.

Hillary would have us think that the issue here is one of who hacked and provided the files to Wikileaks not the facts of what the leaks revealed.

Only two questions remain. How many more voters will be turned off by her vindictiveness? And will she suffer a complete mental and or physical breakdown on camera or off, before or after the election. Clearly Trump will now be able to overcome the margin of fraud that any candidate faces when up against the Clintons.

How delicious!

An Interesting Change In Tone.

I'm sure that I'm not the only one who noticed but there was what I thought was an interesting change in Obama's rhetorical approach in the wake of Sunday's assassinations in Baton Rouge.

Previously, every time there has been some horrible act of violence, be it perpetrated by Islamists extremists or by some black extremists, Obama's statements have always contained some passing phrase of sympathy for families of the victims, followed immediately by open caveats about alleged systemic police racism and an attack on the 2nd Amendment.

Today we heard none of that. What we got was a call for national unity and a statement about these attacks on police officers being an attack on us all and on the very structure of society.

So then, is our feckless fool of a President finally starting to realize at last that he has overplayed the Alinsky card and the blowback is getting beyond either his or a compliant media's control? Well no shit Sherlock. While Obama and even a large majority of the public can turn a blind eye on the senselessness of urban drug gangs slaughtering each other, when you stir the pot of racial animosity so deeply that the extremist elements start gunning down police officers then people are going to start looking for someone to blame.

Obama and Hillary through their crass pandering to the Black Lives Matter extremists may have, in the short term, put a target on the back of the police. In the longer term however they have put it on their own. Most people with common sense, be they black, white or brown know that when the shit hits the fan, those very same police are their first line of defense, if not their only one.

Even the most dedicated political adherents begin to have second thoughts when their personal safety becomes a factor. I can only guess that internal polling has taken an ugly turn and for Hillary, Obama and his so called legacy. Get the message you Democrats, Obama's legacy is on full display in Nice and Orlando and Dallas and Baton Rouge.

You've opened the Pandora's Box of violence and hatred. Try as you might to close the lid, it's too damn late.

Going To Lengths To Ignore The Obvious.

Dateline Nice France: Insane Muslim slaughters 84 innocents during Bastille Day celebrations.

Dateline Dallas Texas: Crazed gunman murders five police officers from sniper's perch.

Dateline Orlando Florida: Mad Muslim slaughters dozens in gay nightclub.

Dateline July 17th 2016, Baton Rouge Louisiana: Gunman assassinates three police officers, wounds three others.

Dateline July 16th 2016, Baton Rouge Louisiana: Malik Shabaz and the New Black Panthers announce the starting of a chapter in Baton Rouge.
"I've got your back!"

It doesn't take some sort of genius to draw connection between the escalation of Islamic slaughter and the sudden explosion of assassinations of police officers. Anyone who has been paying attention knows that the Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan has for decades been claiming that white people are "devils" who do little more than plot ways to murder blacks.

Neither is it some unknown that Malik Shabazz and his New Black Panthers are steeped in radical Islam and racial hatred.
It takes nothing more than a cursory search to find videos of Shabazz and his associates spewing their blind hatred of whites. Some of these same despicable people are the ones that Obama's former Attorney General gave a deliberate pass for intimidating white voters in Philadelphia. Again the video is readily available.

Now video evidence has been found that the Baton Rouge killer had been a member of the Nation if Islam and openly hated whites. Again I have to ask: What will it take to fire government to act? Why does every statement by white get challenged as racist or "triggering" by Democrats and the media, yet open hatred by the likes of black Islamists and the Black Lives Matter movement draw nothing but a blind eye.

The most obvious fact being ignored by the politicians and the media is that if the police really wanted to see more blacks killed all they would have to do is withdraw from patrolling black neighborhoods and then stand back and watch them slaughter each other in numbers greater than any "police conspiracy" could ever achieve. There have been over 3,400 homicides in Chicago since Obama took office. The vast majority of the victims have been blacks murdered by other blacks. Yet the President remains all but silent about that carnage and condemns the police for being forced to make snap decisions when confronting violent criminals.

Add in the fact that Islam has been using the prison system as a recruiting ground for decades and that numerous of our feckless politicians including our deceitful President have openly met with and even praised the likes of Farrakhan and you have a recipe that will produce nothing but further violence and death that will be met with nothing but words and inaction.

May the good Lord spare us all from such arrogance if not treason. Sadly I suspect that there are going to be many more innocent dead before there is any resolution if the conflict between Islamic 7th century barbarism and western civilization. Not here at home, not in Europe and most certainly not in the already blood soaked Middle East.

Ergodan And The Coup That Failed...Or Did it?

As it appears that the coup in Turkey has failed at that can only mean that Ergodan will become the unchallenged dictator of Turkey and its transformation into an unrestrained Islamic state will only move more quickly.  The fate of those officers and soldiers involved I have no doubt will share the fate of Hitler's SA on the night of the long knives.

The dangers Ergodan will now present are obvious. Turkey is already inside the military structures of NATO and possesses the second largest Army in NATO.  It is no particular secret that Ergodan's differences with ISIs are not religious or philosophical but purely political.  Ergodan is just as much a revanchist for the past power of the Ottoman Empire as Putin is for the lost Russian Empire. And they both blame the West for the loss.

The realities of past conflicts between the Ottoman and Russian Empires aside, Ergodan's desire for Turkey as an Islamic state is to restore it as the seat of the Califate and both ISIS and Basher Assad stand in the way of that goal.

That if Ergodan successfully cements his power he will no doubt increase his blackmail leverage against the EU with a renewed flood of refugees is beyond doubt. What is in doubt is the EU resolve. Will they defy Ergodan and find a way to turn back the flood or will they take cowards way out and simply finance Ergodan's imperial ambitions that can only lead more conflict in that most troubled region.

That the bureaucrats in Brussels would think that Ergodan can be trusted is perhaps the biggest fool's errand since Neville Chamberlain signed the Munich Accords in 1938. All of Europe would be well served to remember Winston Churchill's comment after returning to London and claiming to have secured "Peace in our time." Sadly I doubt they will: "You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor and you will have war." They will be like the man who feeds the tiger, hoping it will not eat him.

Overreach And The Invasion Of The Moral Conscience.

In my previous post I asked at what point is the public going to demand that government take action against Islamic violence. Perhaps now we need to speculate as to what may have changed within the Public's conscience that will trigger these demands.

No one is questioning the moral revulsion that we all feel when events like just happened in Nice occur. Sad as such a state of affairs is, it's sadder still that we have developed almost a sense of numbness to these events. Just so long as they occurred every 6 or 8 months we could express our horror at the event but then within a few days or weeks the numbness sets in and we go back to our daily routines and the memories of these events fade from the forefont  our everyday lives.

Yes we do think that there but for the grace of God go I, but then the funerals are over the perpetrators are caught or killed, we breath a sigh of relief and push the thought that another such event can and will occur out of our minds.
We become almost thankful that we get that needed breathing space. The scenes of the horror in France, in Florida, in Germany and elsewhere are so awful, so stressful, so emotionally draining that we come to crave the opportunity to reset ourselves and resume some sort of normality it our daily lives.

But now that appears to have changed. We don't get that opportunity to reset. The 6 month interval is all but gone. We don't even get 6 weeks. The horrors now seem to come every two weeks or less. The narratives of horror, the visions of blood soaked bodies of innocents laying in the street are quickly replace one upon another. There is no rest, no reset. The stress, the emotional exhaustion becomes relentless. This condition if it remains persistent can and will become the equivalent what was once called combat fatigue, what we now call PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

This creates problems for government. Firstly we are private citizens not members of the military. Combat stress is part of being in combat arms.  Military recruits receive training to deal with the stress of combat, civilians don't and shouldn't have to. The toll of extended stop loss deployments on US soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq has long been seen in the continuing horrific suicide and institutionalization rates among veterans. When this stress begins to manifest among the civililian population, and if the current trends and frequency continues it will, the results will likely be even more extreme.

The longer the politicians procrastinate and talk about "living with terrorism" as French President Hollande did today, the sooner one of two things will happen. The public's demands that government stop sitting on its hands in the face of innocent bodies being stacked like cord wood will grow louder and louder and eventually if necessary, move into the realm of demonstrations and civil disobedience.

If individuals don't start conducting random acts of retribution against Muslims, innocent or not, and their property it will be a miracle. When and if it does happen the responsibility will be as much on the feckless poloticians failure to act as it will be Islam's failure to evolve beyond the 7th century barbarism of Sharia law.

What Is The Trigger Point? How Much More Will People Take?

What will it take? Just how much more are we supposed to withstand before we demand that our government finally respond to acts of war with our own acts of war?

Will our politicians remain so recalcitrant that the the people will be forced to act in our own defense? It's not the politicians and the social and banking elite who are the targets of these 7th century barbarians, it's the regular people who depend on government to protect them from just such events.

What do we have to do to get government to act in our best interest against people who want nothing more than to kill as many of us as possible and are willing to die themselves in order to accomplish their evil goals? Do we have to march in the streets demanding action? Do we have to bring our city centers to a halt and not relent until they act? Or will we have to take the initiative against the enemy ourselves? Do we have to make our own threats? Must we resort to our own violent reactions before government acts?

This horrific attack in Nice is not the first time some Jhadist has taken a vehicle and used it as a weapon. It's not even the first time it's happened in France. Do a simple search for "Muslim driver deliberately runs down pedestrians" and the the list is appalling long.

Don't tell me that the FBI and Homeland Security don't know which Mosques are the hotbeds of this hate filled barbarism. Don't tell me that the greatest threat comes from white American military veterans or even the ragtag remenents of the Klan or skinheads hiding in a compound in the mountains of Montana. Don't tell me that closing our borders and halting immigration from the cesspools of the Middle East that breed this insanity is not an effective tool in at least reducing the potential for more attacks.

And yet even as the light of dawn in Nice reveals the bodies of the dead still laying in the street our so-called President still can't utter the words Islamic terrorism. Nobody but nobody is waiting for him to say once again that the motives of the attacker are undetermined. Nobody is buying the disingenuous prevarications coming out of the White House press office. We don't want statements. We want to see clearly articulated plans of actions to defend the nation AND destroy the enemy.

We know who the enemy is and it's not just some "lone wolf" who's been radicalized on the internet. The enemy is Islam itself and its failure to reform and become compatible with the rest of the civilized world.

For the moment you can bet that neither the Obama administration nor Hillary Clinton have either the first idea or slightest intent of doing anything of substance. They will run their mouths about strengthening alliances and sharing more information but not a single proposal for real action other than sender a few hundred more of our beleaguered troops into harm's way in northern Iraq and Yemen.

Short of giving Muslims the option of converting to Christianity, internment or packing their shit and getting the hell out I don't know what else can be done to rid ourselves of this menece. Clearly the problem in Europe is far more serious and clearly more deadly than here at home. But do we really want to wait until we are seeing this horrible attack duplicated here on an even more massive scale than we already have?

Before anybody starts bellyaching about civil rights, tell me what greater civil right is there than to go about your life free from the fear of being obliterated by some demented 7th century madman hiding behind his "religious freedom"? Where are the so called "moderate Muslims" lining up to report the would be murderers among them?

We all know that at the rate these monstrous acts are accelerating it's going to come down to a choice of us or them. That has been the story of history since the first scribe to a stylus to clay tablet. Every century or so some monster or group if monsters thinks they have the right to subject the rest of the world to their will. When it happens the cost in treasure and lives to slay the he beast is horrible and each time the cost seems worst than the last. We might kill the monster but the evil bitch that breads it is always in heat.

The bottom line is that when people become angry and fearful they do not act with reason, but they do act, and even the slightest provocation or perceived threat will bring forth violence. When that happens those Muslims who don't overtly wish us harm will suffer along with the rest and it will be BOTH their own inaction, their own failure to clean up their own house if horrors AND our politicians feckless political correctness that will be responsible.

So the next administration, be it Hillary or Trump will have to make a decision. Do they want to confront the monster where it breeds and decisively or do they want to face both Islamic violence here AND a growing internal rebellion born of the refusal to act?

Hillary And Bernie Sitting In A Tree...

Bernie and his hero.
So now Bernie Sanders shows his true colors by endorsing Hillary.  All the stories about Bernie's so-called integrity and standing on his socialist principles have just been proven the lies that anybody with any common sense always knew they were. 

This just goes to show that like all godless communists Bernie has a price. Besides a check with an obscene number of zeros, written to an untraceable offshore bank account, I have no doubt that Hillary maneuvered to remove him from the the DC political scene by promising the Ambassador's post in Havana where he can commiserate his final years away with Fidel, Raoul and whatever other despicable exiles and scofflaws the Castro brothers are giving seaside condos while the rest of the populatuon plots how to build boats to take them to Florida.

The only question that remains is how many of his dedicated if naïve supporters will defect to Trump in November and how many will simply just stay home? 

That Hillary is just as crooked and the system is just as rigged as Trump says it is gets more apparent evey day. The choice is between acceleration into the abyss of corruption, lies, fascism and war or a leap into the unknown.

Feeling Spat Upon.

As William Shakespeare said,"There is something rotten in Denmark." and it doesn't take anything more than plain old common sense to see it.
The events of the last week have clearly demonstrated that there are one set of rules for us commoners and absolutely none for the powerful elites and their agents.
These circumstances are little different, some would argue even more egregious, than those that led to the Continental Congress drafting the Deceleration of Independence.
As someone who held a TS/SCI security clearance and worked inside a high security SCIF for both terms of my clearance, I can state from my own knowledge of procedures, what I was told were actions forbidden by law and the nondisclosure agreement that I had to sign that outlined the severe penalties involved if I screwed up, I know for a fact that what Hillary Clinton and her staff did was a violation of the law. It was very clearly explained to me at the time that if something leaked by my action or words I can and would be charged and intent had no bearing on it.
That FBI Director Comey and now AG Lynch went to such great efforts to distort the meaning of the words in the law, even going do far as to include interpretations of intent where none exist, shows the veracity of my earlier conclusion.
The last step of the investigation I went through to be granted a clearance was a polygraph examination. These tests include electrodes measuring brain activity, monitoring of pulse, blood pressure and resperation rates, along with galvanic measuring of how much an individual is sweating. They even put a specisl cushion under the subjects butt to measure how much they are squirming in their seat or clinching their butt cheeks in reaction to the questions.
Somehow I don't think either of the Clintons or any members of their staff are going to be volunteering to be subjected to such examinations that any of us commoners would be REQUIRED to do so if we were in these sensitive positions.
As it stands then, there is no reason to beleive any thing we here from the Clintons or their minions is anything but a bald faced lie.  NOT PREVARICATIONS OR OBFUSCATIONS BUT BSLD FACE LIES!  Trust is earned and they have done everything to show that they are not worthty of it. 

The Clintons and this government have spat upon us and then all but challenged us with "What are you going to do about it?" As such we owe them nothing. Not respect, not loyalty, not trust and certainly not obedience. NOT A DAMN THING!

It Takes But Some Three Percent....

When any group of people gets pushed hard and fast enough into a corner there will be those who will simper like dogs but there will also always be a percentage of them that will be, perhaps slow to anger, but will reach their limits and fight back with a vengeance and without mercy, because they finally realize there will be no survival without s fight. Time we all asked our selves just what lmits we will not be pushed past? Or are we to become the simpering cowards that clog the roads for the brave fighters trying to move forward against the enemy?

Since the assassination of John Kennedy the communist underground has been slowly and persistently pushing for the destruction of Western Judeo-Christian cultural and governmental structures and the rule of law with the intent that the foundations will become so riddled and rotted of any moral integrity that they will collapse of their own weight. Sensing that their goal was finally in sight with the election of Obama, they shifted tactics to a full on frontal assault against anything and everything moral, cultural, Christian, Constitutional and white. But as with all arrogant collectivists they have overreached and in result the last two years has created a sudden and determined backlash and the phenomenon of Donald Trump's political ascendency.

They see him and the people and movement associated with him as truely capable of reversing the 30 years of destruction wrought upon Western civilization, Christian cultural identity and that great leap of faith that was and is the American experiment in self government.

There is no lie they will not tell, no depth they will not sink to, no perversion they will not promote in order to achieve their goal of not just collectivist physical enslavement but of a moral bankruptcy that will render many a man intellectually incapable of resisting against a bondage applied not just to America but the entire world.

Conversely those of us who are fully aware of the narrative and nature of their plot and the people who carry it out, must make ourselves ready for the fight that could well become violent at a moment's turn.  We must remember that our enemies are capable of and willing to do anything they see fit that is not expressly resisted by some force.

We all of course should, like the founders, pray daily for the device guidrnce and intercession of God, but we will also need to to temper those prayers with the full knowledge that God helps those who help themselves. If that means we must prepare and lay in wait with an out numbered forcep, like Nimitz at Midway, to strike at the highest crest of the enemies assault, then that is what we must do. If we are righteous in our cause and preparations and sacrifice, then God will provide the moment to strike the fatal blow, just as he did for the dive bomber groups who turned the tide of war with a single blow. May God preserve and protect us all in this our great endeavor.

Comey's Conclusion, Collusion Or Confounded Confusion. The Weight Of The World Now Falls On Loretta Lynch's Shoulders.

This "conclusion" (collusion?) by FBI Director Comey that there is insufficient grounds to prosecute the Hillary Clinton or any of her staff pretty much guarantees that she will not be holding anything but carefully stage managed press conferences and interviews between now and November.

That said, there is more going on here than meets the eye. Either Comey has succumbed to blackmail or covert threats to his family, (what has become known as Arkancide) or he is more clever than anyone thinks, even the Clintons, or both. Anyone like myself who has held a TS/SCI clearance and read and signed the attendant nondisclosure agreements, with their promises of arrest, prosecution and imprisonment for failure to comply, understands that Comey's  statement was pure prevarication and obfuscation on the pertinent points of the applicable law. (18 U.S.C. Section 793-F).

AG Lynch by her history is clearly beholden to Bill Clinton, director Comey is not. Perhaps by his report he relieves himself from any threats from the Clinton Mafia and puts the entire onus of the final decision on Lynch and the DoJ, thus making ANY decision they make seen as either completely spineless or purely political.

It should be noted that when it was first announced that Director Comey would be issuing a formal statement it was also said that he would be taking questions from the press "in private" afterwards. WHY DID THIS NOT HAPPEN? As has been mentioned elsewhere, Black's Law Dictionary defines gross negligence as "extreme carelessness". The two phrases are indistinguishable in their legal context or meaning.

We all know, as Shakespeare said, "There is something rotten in  Denmark" and this mess already stinks worse than a wheel of Limburger cheese left out in the hot sun.

The report raises more questions than it answers. Outside any legal questions how aggressive is Donald Trump and his opposition research team going to be in pounding on this? Are there any reporters with the guts and integrity to vigorously hound her with the legal definition question and most importantly, how will that 5-10% of the voting public, that decides the outcome of any election, (outside if fraud of course) going to react to the rancid stench burning in their nostrils?

Hillary, the leftwing media and blogosphere might think she just got a pass and will spin Comey's statement as an exoneration. What it has done in reality is forced AG Lynch into that narrow crevice between a rock and a hard place where Hillary has resided for the last year and into making a huge bet with her reputation and career based on the outcome of November's election.

If she passes on pressing charges and Hillary wins in November she will either move back into private practice or stay on as AG under Hillary. If she passes and Trump wins, she risks getting dragged even deeper into any subsequent investigation and a possible conspiricy indictment of her own.

If she opts for pressing charges and Hillary wins her career is finished. If Trump wins then maybe she escapes with her personal reputation intact and perhaps as a behind the scenes attorney in a private law firm way, way, way outside the DC beltway. Either way she risks the aforementioned Arkancide.

The stench of association with the Clinton Mafia cannot ever be scrubbed off. Not with bleach or acetone or sandpaper. The repercussions of her bad judgement and that 30 minute conversation on the tarmac in Phoenix will haunt AG Lynch for the rest of her life. But hey that's just the way the Clintons roll. They don't care how many bodies or how much damage to lives and reputations they create, just so long as they remain at the top of the festering pile.

Sadly, the future of the Republic, perhaps its very continued existance, may rest in the decisions she makes in the next few weeks. If she has any intelligence and integrity at all she is in for some long and sleepless nights. For her sake I hope she locks the door to her office, calls every honest spiritual advisor she can think of (one might hope that the great Billy Graham can muster the strength to help her in this her hour of great tribulation) and then falls to her knees and has a good long prayer for the Lord's advice and guidance. She is going to need it and I will be praying that  she finds it. Perhaps we all should.

Comey Buckles.

It's enough to make any person of conscience puke. Comey's conclusion that HE doesn't think the case against Clinton and her staff could be successfully prosecuted is a travesty in itself. Anyone with any legal common sense would have found his statement contradictory.

Just how does someone in the position of Secretary of State behave in a manner that is "extremely careless" and at the same time avoid being found in "gross negligence" as under 18 U.S.C. Section 793-F? Black's Law Dictionary itself defines gross negligence as extreme carelessness.

The controversy over this stinking load of Clinton corruption is far from over. Just like the Clinton cronies at the Wall Street Banks think they are "Too big to fail", the Clintons think they are "Too big to jail." Let the leaks from the FBI files begin. The evil bitch is going to be on the defensive all the way into November.

Bill's silver or lead ploy on the Phoenix airport tarmac is going to backfire. Otherwise the Republic is finished. God save us all.

Hey There Georgie Girl!

Was anybody really listening today when George Will announced that he was leaving the Republican party? Does anybody really care? Was sour grapes the color of his tie? Or perhaps the tie was to tight and it matched his completion while he had his childish little hissy fit.

For the last three decades people like Will and the Bush clan thought the Republican party was their exclusive play thing. They were convinced the rank and file voters were so in awe of his erudition and their self proclaimed wisdom, that they would never even entertain moving in any direction other than what was to be found on the pages of National Review or Weekly Standard. No matter how many times these neocon oligarchs betrayed the voters they just had no alternative but to do as they were told.

Then along comes this upstart, this political neophyte Donald Trump and upsets their little apple cart. By the time the likes of George Will, Charles Krauthammer and Bill Kristol were able to see beyond their own hubris and read the the desires and intentions of the rank and file it was just to damn late, for them at least.

Their shifting loyalties from Bush to Rubio to Cruz made them look even more like the power grasping assholes that the voters had already figured out they are. Worse yet for these eliteist snobs was the sudden realization that they don't really own the party and they couldn't just pick up their ball and go home like a spoiled elementary school child.

Except apparently for George Will, who apparently still thinks he has some legion of followers waiting for his next pronouncement to decide what to do. Here's a hint for you George. If that were true you wouldn't be in the position you are, because so far the public's reaction to your decleration can be summed up as "George who?"

Perhaps there is some good to come from his departure. It could also indicate that he and his ilk have recognized the futility of still trying to engineer some underhanded crap in Cleveland. Maybe he's figured out it would better to be absent and forgotten than absent and dispised.

Nothing Has Changed Except The Body Count.

I wrote the following posts five years ago. Sadly neither the pathetic excuses for inaction nor the dangerous moral relativism have changed. Just the body count.

Unless Of Course We Lose...

In order to understand the status of the conflict between Jihadist Islam and the West in general, one must first define the term enemy and how the juxtaposition as enemies comes about. At the present stage of the conflict there can be little doubt that it was these elements of Islam that declared the West to be their enemy, and had been engaged it committing act of war long before all but a very few bothered to take their actions seriously. Historically the argument could be made that the conflict goes back for nearly a millennium, having it roots in Moorish conquest and subsequent expulsion from Spain and Portugal and the conflicts with the Ottoman Turks in the Balkans.

The attitude of many practitioners of Islam is that once Islam conquers an area or nation its inhabitants have no further right to reassert themselves and reclaim their lands. Their only choices being to convert, pay the tax for not converting or die. That this is a complete anathema to Judeo-Christian Western civilization is an argument that should not even need to be made.

It is the Jihadists who have defined the alternatives as either our destruction or theirs. When a group or nation has declared itself to be your enemy, wages war against you, kills your soldiers and civilians and neither shows or expresses any inclination to negotiate except as a means to gain a position of political or military advantage from which to wage further war, WHAT CHOICE TO YOU HAVE BUT TO WAGE WAR AGAINST THEM AND KILL THEM AS EXPEDIENTLY AS POSSIBLE?

It is they who have declared us to be their enemy and waged war against the west. The time for turning the other cheek has long since passed but sadly our politicians lack the courage to wage total war as was done in WWII. As ugly as they are, wars are not won by negotiating from a weak or defensive position. Wars are won by killing the enemy and destroying their ability and will to continue the fight, leading to either their total destruction or their coming to the negotiating table from a weak and defensive position.

That is a lesson the history has taught a thousand times, but the moral relativists just won’t or don’t want to see it applied to this conflict.

No reasoned Westerner would define all Moslems as bad. But I must reiterate it is the Jihadist ‘s interpretation of Islam that has declared war against us and defined our status as non-Moslem as justification. I have heard no declarations of a need or desire to kill Moslems in the name of Christ, yet the opposite is the battle cry of the Jihadists. Neither the US nor any Western nation has declared that the desired end of conducting war against Jihadist Islam or the dismantling of Saddam Hussein’s tyranny in Iraq was their conversion to Christianity. Again the same cannot be said of the Jihadists.

To the Jihadists the absence of status as a Moslem or failure to adhere to their interpretation of Islam is the definition of the loss of innocence. But for the moral relativists the problem is one of “lack of understanding.” If there was such a thing as a Neville Chamberlain award they would win it hands down.

Putting forth the Crusades as an argument or justification is disingenuous at best. No one could rationally argue that Christianity as practiced today is the same as it was practiced in the 1100’s. The same cannot be said for Islam. Christianity went through a reformation and has evolved in its interpretation and practice. The inquisition is an historical fact but it is not an ongoing practice. Again the same cannot be said of Islam.

The supposition and expounding on only parts of the story of Christianity is what is dangerous. Twisting half-truths as the whole story is far more dangerous than lies cut from whole cloth. The spread of Christianity’s through most of the Mediterranean and Roman world came about because Emperor Constantine came to realize that it had grown to become a force he could no longer reckon with. Stories of his “miraculous” conversion not withstanding it became more a matter of “if you can’t beat ‘em join ‘em.”

If Christianity then became a means through which he could exert control of the Empire so be it. He was a Roman Emperor after all. Rome had a long history of tolerance for the religions of conquered nations. It was only when the corruption of the likes of Nero, Caligula and Claudius wrought havoc upon the Roman economy that the Christians became the targets of convienience persecution and the scapegoats for the consequences of Imperial excess. Yet it continued to grow, leading to Constantine’s momentous decision.

Neither the excess’s nor shortcomings, successes or failures of the Bush administration are relevant to the issue. The Jihadists were at war with us before he came to office and will still be at war with us when Obama is gone, unless and until we address it as an issue of total war rather than one of “proportional response” or criminal acts, or as long as there are those in power who view the world through rose colored glasses or through a lens of political correctness or moral relativism.

To do so is to venture into the realm of the absurd. As stated one of the root causes of the aggression is because we are not Moslems. We should no more waste time and effort trying to ‘understand’ them than one should try to reason with a rapist. When faced with kill or be killed, you kill or you get killed. Even if one could reason with them or ‘understand’ their motive do you honestly think that it would change their tactics or murderous intent? To me that answer seems a pretty clear and unambiguous no.

So then getting back to the Jihadists, it’s not a matter of invasion or conquest, it’s a matter of destroying their will to fight. Look at the air campaign in the 1st gulf war. The Iraqi army's will to fight was destroyed before the first tank crossed the border.

My personal ideas or suggestions not withstanding are strategic not tactical. Just as in WWII if we knew the Germans or Japanese were using a particular town or city as a marshalling area or production center we bombed the crap out of it and civilian casualties were not of paramount concern. The object was to destroy the enemy’s ability and will to fight. We didn’t fight the war with one hand tied behind our back. When Truman made the decision to drop the a-bomb on Japan it was not out of some blood lust it was a calculated decision as the quickest way to end the war with the fewest further casualties on both sides.

To those who would choose not to accept the cogency of such an arguments, or would so easily dismiss it as vague or just plain wrong, that is of course their right and I might argue obligation. But with such rejection comes another obligation, one to propose your own course of action. The difference between the Germans of the WWII era and the Jihadist of today is that Germans at least had a rational fear of death and a semblance of what would become of their posterity. The Jihadists do not possess either of these. Hence their repeated call that they “love death” more than we “love life”. It is not possible to reason with the irrational. How else can we conclude otherwise than that if they are so in love with death that they will not stop until we give it to them?

The murdering rapist is in YOUR house, what are you going to do? As I asked at the very beginning: WHAT OTHER CHOICE DO WE HAVE? If you can’t or won’t answer that question with a viable solution that has a reasonable expectation of success, then what place do you really have in the argument, other than as a victim?

The Psychological Disconnect Of The Petrol Dollar.

Whether you are among those that consider the jihadists to be “terrorists,” or are among those who consider US foreign policy to be “terrorism” in its own right, or at the least is the source or cause of terrorism, has become quite irrelevant at this point of the conflict. Once one enters into the quasi-mystic world of moral and cultural relativism, all connections to logic, reason and historical precedent get left behind. This is how and when this particular form of political correctness becomes an obstacle to understand and addressing the clash of cultures between the West and Islam.

If one were to listen to much of the Arab and Islamic world and it defenders in the West, the source of the West’s “crime” against Islam has been our mere presence in the region, infidel boots desecrating the “sacred ground” of Islam. Since the dawn of time stronger nations have been influencing and manipulating if not conquering weaker ones as an instrument of foreign policy for their own benefit. How then is Western colonialism any different than the Moor’s occupation of Spain or the Ottoman Turk’s conquest of Greece and the Balkans? It’s not that there is anything inherently wrong with the concept of taking pride in a national or cultural identity. The problems arise when the element of religious fervor spills over into becoming a moral justification for an irrational blood lust exercised in the name of the supremacy one concept of “god” over another.

Such is of course the greatest of human weaknesses and failings over the centuries and indeed the hardest to overcome. “My god is better than your god.” “Worship my god, my way or be put to the sword or burned at the stake … etc… etc.” For much of the Arab world and particularly among the extremists elements, it is not just the presence of the “infidel” on their sacred soil, be it for whatever reason, that creates the offence, but that a modern world of advanced technology, mass and instantaneous communication, Western culture, be it in whatever form, automobiles, music, movies, television and now the internet have infiltrated and corrupted the desired static “purity” of their would be medieval 8th century societies.

Irrespective of whatever may be the foreign policy machinations of our governments, I’d think that most Westerners would be more than glad to limit our dealings with that part of the world to simply buying their oil at whatever price and wash our hands of most all the rest of it. Sadly the world of economic interaction does not work that way. The accumulation of all those petro-dollars does the recipients little good if they can’t in turn further exchange them for some other more tangible goods or services.   Therein lays the rub, the source of the conflict. How can the Arab street aspire to maintain some ethereal and static 8th century cultural “purity” and at the same time desire all those technological innovations that are the epitome of, the very manifestation of the Western capitalist and cultural system? Under what paradigm can they benefit from interaction with and indeed absorption of these elements of Western culture and at the same time hope to remain apart and uninfluenced by it? Is there not some failure of logic, some rational disconnect in blogging on some jihadist web site that calls for the death of the great Satan and the imposition of Sharia law on the West and at the same time using the fruits and benefits of Western technology in complaining about the corruption of Islamic culture by influences of this same Western technology?

We are left then to assume that the desired interpretation of Arab and/or Islamic cultural “purity” would be one where children are seen but not heard, where women are neither seen nor heard, and the delusion that the intellectual liberation that comes from the exposure to a myriad of sources of information and influences from outside a previously closed society, is a genie that can and should be forced back into the bottle via the instruments of violent religious fervor, and failing that, at the point of a gun.

The fact remains that in spite of their adherence to tribalism, narrow moralistic interpretations and tolerating elitist, corrupt leadership structures, those Arab states floating in petro-dollars enjoy some of the highest standards of living in the world. At the same time these so-called sovereign states remain xenophobic in the extreme. They import the vast majority of their labor force to both, build, maintain and operate the means of exploiting their oil resources and to build the fabulous modern architectural infrastructures they now enjoy. They then keep their hired help largely confined to enclaves, kept separate from Arab society in general.

All this new found wealth has led to a considerable percentage of the native populations to have transitioned from the camel to the Corvette, from the goat herd to the art collection, and from living in tents into living in luxury high rise condos, and thus becoming, if not the idle rich, at least the idle well to do. Doing so absent any history of their fathers and their father’s fathers working hard, saving and sacrificing to provide for their progeny’s future and to build the society and the benefits they now enjoy. Deprived of the Western model of a generational economic, social and cultural evolution they find themselves, quite understandably in a state of culture shock, weather they want to admit it or not. How else then does one interpret Islamic families immigrating to the West to create a better life for their families and then turning around and slaughtering their wives and daughters for the cultural crimes of becoming “too Westernized,” or refusing to enter into an arranged marriage, or dating a non-Muslim, absent this contention of culture shock or a psychological disconnect in reason or logic? 

In the West the transformation and growth of the middle class into widespread economic affluence took place over generations and decades if not centuries, driven by advances in technology and the governmental systems that grew out of the enlightenment. The accompanying changes and normalizations in social mores and attitudes about class and religious differentiations were slower to develop, take root and gain general social acceptance, often only after a great deal of social turmoil and conflict. A shorter-term example would be the contentious evolution of the American civil right struggle. A longer-term example would be the protracted and violent conflict brought about by the Protestant Reformation. The point being, that changes in social attitudes do eventually catch up with the economic changes that drove them, but it takes time and generations.

In the oil states of the Arab world, when measured against the Western example, this economic transformation has been revolutionary rather than evolutionary and has taken place in a virtual blink of the eye. There has been no generational time frame to allow for any gradual changes in the social attitudes to catch up to the implications of this economic revolution. This retardation of changes in social attitudes catching up to the economic changes has been exacerbated both by the absence of any underlying long-standing traditions of individual liberty and self-reliance as found in the West and the continuance of adhering to tribalism and narrowly constructed moralisms as defense mechanisms against the social implications of an irreversible economic revolution. It is emotional discomfort of this embedded culture shock and psychological disconnect from reason and logic that has become the fertile ground of Islamic nihilism and its demagogic practitioners. And we have been reaping the whirlwind of their corruption for the last 30 years.

Now throw in the added pressure of rapid inflation in food prices and you not only ignite the fires of even more social unrest, you further accentuate the contradiction with one of the most basic and universal of human desires, one that knows no borders or states; the desire to lead a better life than your parents, to provide a better existence for your children and grandchildren than you had yourself. Clearly the Arab and Islamic world has a lot of catching up to do. The questions becomes not ones of if it will be tumultuous and violent but ones of how much of that tumult and violence is the West responsible for, how much of it will spill over into the rest of the world and how deeply will the West get drawn into it while acting in its own self-defense.

The 50th Victim...

At the rate that the revelations of sheer incompetence and politically correct madness are coming out in the wake of the Orlando slaughter, the latest and hopefully last victim will be Hillary Clinton's Presidential campaign.

First we got the revelation that the father of this monster was an open supporter of the Taliban who had spoken with members of the Clinton State Dept. on at least one occasion. Next we get the news that the shooter had been interviewed by the FBI on three occasions which apparently concluded that his particular derangement didn't constitute any threat to the public. Now it has been revealed that during Hillary's tenure as Sec. of State an investigation of the Mosque he attended had been ordered shut down by said State Dept. because it was considered undue "racial profiling".

And still President Obama and Hillary Clinton prefer playing foolish semantic games over what the definition of "radical Islamic terrorism" is and blame guns rather than take any concrete action to address the slaughter and actually protect the public.

Donald Trump was exactly correct when he said that Democrats can't claim to be protectors of gay rights and women's rights while at the same time continuing to facilitate unfettered immigration of people from place that are by their very nature openly hostile to both.

Sadly, at the rate that Islamic violence is occurring, this will not be the last incident of mass murder in the name of Islam before the election in November. Nor will it be the last time Obama and Hillary will make pathetic excuses for the murderous results of their feckless policy. Hopefully come November, it will be the last we shall have to endure of either of them on the American political stage.

More Unsurprising Revelations

In days following any horrific act such as happened in Orlando there are a string of speculations and revelations about the perpetrator concerning their mental stability, sexual proclivities and or FBI complicity and or incompetence.

It was quickly revealed that this particular piece of dirt was of Afghan decent and that his father was a outspoken supporter of the Afghan Taliban. This raises the question of if this was known why wasn't he expelled in the days and weeks after the 9-11 attacks. That he wasn't and his son subsequently became radicalized as well should surprise no one.

This piece of human garbage had already been accused by his ex-wife that he was physically  abusive. Today it was revealed by investigators that he had visited the scene of his crime numerous times and that he had used gay dating web sites and had attempted to get a former room mate to go out with him. His ex has further stated that she thought he was gay.

This all is compounded by the FBI's own revelation that it had twice investigated him because fellow workers and associates reported him as having made claims about having contacts with radical groups and, praised the 9-11 attacks and made threatening comments. Due to pressure from Obama administration officials no doubt, the FBI concluded that those reporting him were simply "racial profiling" and that this was another case of "nothing to see here, move along". So when is the agent or agents (or Attorney General) responsible for such a horrendous conclusion going to be fired and stripped of their pension?

As concerned citizens we must ask ourselves and our public officials: Are there any dots to be connected here and where do they lead?

It is little discussed but widely know that the sexual abuse of young children, especially young boys is widely practiced in much of the Islamic world of South Central Asia. A practice that probably predates even Alexander the Great. Further there have been reports that DoD officials had instructed direct field commanders in Afghanistan to ignore incidents of child rape because it is a "cultural issue". Are these people insane? Recently a US Special Forces soldier was finally reinstated to duty after he had been Court Martialed for beating the crap out of an Afghan officer who he had caught rapeing a young boy.

Can there be any but little doubt that given the Orlando Slaughterer's father's Taliban sympathies that he also "culturally" raped and abused his own son? That abused boy, then grew up in a nation where the very nature of his upbringing was regarded as criminal and subject to the heaviest of penalties of law. Can there be any doubt that this contributed to the sexual confusion and mental imbalance that led to such a horrific end?

Under such circumstances how can anyone of legal or moral authority continue to tell us that Islam is a religion of peace, or that we should not slam the door shut to the entrance of any more individuals for whom this kind of moral depravity is to be regarded as normal or a "cultural issue" beyond consideration in making rational decisions of national security?

More Workplace Violence....

Somehow, someway the Obama administration and the Clinton campaign will try and spin the South Florida Slaughter as something, anything other than an act of irrational Islamic violence. In fact the spin has already begun with media talking heads trotting out the killer's father saying that his son was outraged after seeing two men kissing in public a few weeks or days previously. Of course they don't mention that his inspiration for his violent reaction came straight out of his Islamic upbringing. Because of course we all know that Islam is a "religion of peace" and that as a first generation American he was of course completely integrated and assimilated into America's culture of tolerance and respect.

Some how I don't think the spin Drs. are going to succeed no matter how many RPMs they put on it. This horrendous incident is going to get juxtapositioned with the story that the Obama administration is admitting at least a hundred unvetted "Syrians" every single day.

I would surmise that Trump's speech writers are busily doing a major revision right now and are going to hang this albatros so tightly around Hillary's neck that that there will be little if any chance of her wiggling loose, and the further into the campaign we get the more the rot and stench of that dead carcass will become. Hillary will be on permanent defence and even her offensive lobs won't be able to clear the wall and even if they do they will fall far short of effective range.

Hopefully Trump will open his speech on Monday with a call for prayers for the dead and wounded, their families and friends who will still be in shock and mourning. They will be asking how this happened and who is responsible for giving a radicalised Muslim a security licence and firearm permit. Then Mr. Trump is going to lay the blame squarely at Hillary's and Obama's feet for all to see.

Hillary is finished, kaput. So are the Democrats. It's even to late to try and trot out drunken old Joe Biden as an alternative because as VP he is as up to his neck in this as much as Hillary and Obama.

The desperation inside the Clinton campaign and the White House must be palpable. I don't live in DC but I'd almost bet that the stench of fear can be smelled from outside the fence. Hiding on a golf course on Martha's Vineyard won't be far enough away for Obama to escape the anger and fear.

As I've said before I'd look to see Obama to step back and let the DoJ convene a grand jury then grant Hillary a full blanket pardon, the resign with just enough time for a President Biden to pardon Obama and the they all skip off to Dubai or the UAEto, someplace, anyplace with no extradition treaty, to hide in some multi million dollar condo haunted by the ghost of Idi Amin.

Of Course Only White People Can Be Racists.

The latest skirmish surrounding the phoneyed up class action suit against Donald Trump has brought out the hypocrites in full force.

Trump's questioning the impartiality of the Hispanic Judge presiding over the case is certainly reasonable given the circumstances. Besides the below list, since when is anyone's credibility beyond question just because of their particular ethnic heritage?

1. Both the judge's parents were born in Mexico.
2. Controlling ILLEGAL immigration is, like it or not the leading issue in this year's contest.
3. The Judge is a member of and linked to La Raza organization.
4. The law firm representing the plaintiffs is linked to the same organization.
5. One of the members of the firm was convicted and sentenced to two years in prison for driving up phony class action suits.
6. This same firm has funneled some $650,000 into the Clinton slush fund via paid speeches.
7. Judge Curiel is an Obama appointee, like Justice Sotomayor who has openly stated that ethnicity “may and will make a difference in our judging.”

The direct translation of La Raza is "The Race". Just how stupid does one have to be not to see that by definition this is a racist organization? That virtually every stripe of left winger and a good number of alleged Republicans are trying to tell us it's not or that its members when placed in positions of power can or will just magically abandon their bias is not just absurd it is a bald faced lie that a ten year old could see through.

There was a time that when it came to the Justice system, that not even the appearance of bias or impropriety on the part of a sitting judge was cause for recusal, but apparently that is one more legal standard that has been thrown out the window by this administration and its lackeys.

That asshats like Paul Ryan have jumped on the "That's racist" bandwagon just goes to show how bogus his so-called support for Trump is. Ryan is just another stinking RINO neocon political hack.

I doubt that Trump is going to back down at this point. I'm sure he has resources digging into every speech Judge Curiel had made and every decision he has rendered. If there is anything to be found they will find it. 

This is not Trump's or his lawyer's first time dealing with this kind of crap.  And so far thier record of prevailing in these kinds of gold digging law suits is on par if not better than his record for establishing successful businesses. 

Truth be known this is not about finding "justice" for the complaints, it's about slinging mud, creating political distraction and making money for a bunch of questionable Shylocks.

Madness Knocks On The Door And The EU Says "Come On In!"

I have long since lost count of the number of times that I have definitively linked the methods, goals and evils of Islam and the Nazis and I'm not going to repeat any of them here. However today's speech by Turkish dictator (I won't dignify him with the title of President) ought to send chills down the spine of anyone with the least bit of common sense. Erdogan in particular and the Islamists in general look upon Europe as ravenous wolves, with the same lust and greed as Hitler and the Nazi had when they looked upon Poland and the western expanses of the Soviet Union. They have no intention of being turned back at the Gates of Vienna this time.

Not seperated at birth but reborn again.

The primary justification the Nazis gave for their agressions against Poland and Russia was Germany 's need for greater living space, "Lebensraum". One of the factors that drove this murderous greed was the terms of the Russian capitulation to the Central Powers in 1918.

Under The Treaty of Brest-Litovsk Russia ceded the Baltic States to Germany, the Kars Oblast in the south Caucasus to the Ottoman Empire and declared Belorussia and Ukraine to be independent nations. The future of Poland was not mentioned in the treaty nor were any Polish representatives allowed in the negotiations. Though not mentioned the clear intent was that Austria-Hungary and Germany would divide between them the formerly Russian districts in a forth partition of Poland.

The treaty of course was largely made void by the German capitulation in November of the same year, the Versailles Treaty and the outcome of the Russian Civil War, with one notable exception. Even after the dissection of the Ottoman Empire the Turks retained the Kars Oblast and adjacent areas that now make up northeastern Turkey.

While the Baltic States became independent albeit but for a brief twenty years, Belorussia and especially Ukraine found themselves on the losing end of the Russian Civil War and suffered the horrible consequences of Stalin's wrath in the Holodomor and the Great Terror.
The details of how Hitler's failure in dealing with and her people can be e found elsewhere. Simply summed up they at first created the Wehrmacht as liberators but Hitler then quickly treated them as just another occupied nation. His desire for revenge and greed for land blinded him to any other potential. So the Ukrainians turned on him as vicious and effective Partisans.

To tie this back into my opening contention and present circumstances: the population of those regions of the Caucasus seized from Russia by the Turks in 1918 were at the time over 20% Armenian Christians. Many of them soon fell into the gaping maw of the ongoing Ottoman genocide of Armenians and other Christians within Ottoman control. By the time it was done some 1.5 million Armenians were marched into the Syrian desert to die of starvation and thirst.

It doesn't take a genius to see from his actions and words that Erdogan seeks to restore the Ottoman Empire and to make himself the Calif of a new Islamic supremacy. Neither does take a genius that his jailing of his own citizen for so-called infraction such as "insulting the President" ad Gestapo like and his call for Muslim family's to breed like rabbits is a parallel to the Nazi Lebensborn program, which was an adjunct to Lebensraum, were young Aryan girls were housed and fed and repeatedly bred with young Aryan boys to produce babies to populate the occupied territories.

Like conquerors have done for centuries Erdogon drives the refugees into the face of the enemy to clog their logistics and impede their defenses. He then uses the flood to blackmail the EU into removing visa restrictions and paying him bribes. Hitler followed the refugee flood with shock troops. Erdogan and the Islamists mix theirs in with the refugees to work as 5th columnists to attack from the inside.

So far much of the EU's reaction has not been to resist the invasion but to welcome this new Hitler with open arms. Whether Europe can, will or even deserves to survive the insanity of their leaders remains to be seen.

Trump Makes Another Masterful Move.

During a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel's late night show, Donald Trump hinted that he might be willing to debate Bernie Sanders before the California primary. As we all know this sent the pundit class into hyperdrive. Opinions varied from speculation that it would finish Hillary to it made her look irrelevant to accusations of Trump attempting to interfere with the Democrats primary elections.  One thing was for certain, Trump had managed to completely dominate yet another news cycle.

Then that news became surplanted by another hammer blow to Hillary's campaign in the form of the State Department IG audit report.

After three days, it was time for Trump to make another move to above the fold. So of course he "decides" it would not be proper to debate "the second place finisher". Mission accomplished. Quickly the story and speculation became centered around Trump's decision and why he made it.

Not being a psychologist I can only guess at Hillary's mental state at this point. Her ride from presumptive coronation to political dogfight to possible criminal indictment has to be an emotionally taxing roller coaster even for a longtime political operative like her. Yet some how I'm sure Donald Trump is taking that into consideration in his ongoing calculations on how to build and maintain his own psychological advantage over Clinton and the Democrats.

By first agreeing to debate Sanders and then reversing himself, he certainly risks looking indecisive for the moment but he gains the advantage of keeping both Clinton and Sanders off balance and having to recalculate their next moves. All the while I would bet that Trump already has his next three moves already planned and ready to launch.

While Bernie Sanders can still concentrate on securing a victory in California, Hillary must divide he attention and resources in three directions, against Sanders in the still not finished primary fight, against a seemingly never ending investigation by the FBI and against Trump's building and relentless attacks against both her history and character. Now throw in the added and obvious irritant of a new investigation into long time Clinton operative Terry McAuliffe for potential campaign finance violations while working for the Clinton Foundation slush fund.

While Hillary must be feeling positively besieged if not paranoid, I can almost see Trump sitting back with an irrepressible smile on his face thinking that that is just the conditions he wanted to create.

Is Hillary's Grip On The Machinery Going To Fail?

Each passing week brings more bad news for Hillary and her bid for the White House. Today's release of the State Department summary of their internal audit of her operations as Secretary is quite scathing.

Not only does it conclude that she had failed to comply with both record keeping requirements and established procedures for turning in all records upon leaving office but also that her staff had been warned on more than one occasion that her system was not in compliance with Dept. requirements but that her staff either ignored or brushed off those warnings.

If Hillary and her company of sycophants can't be trusted to behave in a legal manner at the State Dept. why would anyone have even the slightest expectation that she would operate within the bounds of law as President?

It's not George Orwell but Joseph Goebbels that comes to mind. "We were not legal in order to be legal, but in order to rise to power. "We rose to power legally in order to gain the possibility of acting illegally."  
Joseph Goebbels as quoted in Deutsche allgemeine Zeitung, nos. 549-550, Nov. 25, 1934.

Some Random Thoughts For A Thursday.

If we're  all supposed to be so worried about global warming, why are we in the SE having such a miserable "English summer"?

JFK pretty much set his legacy with his "We will put a man on the moon..." speech. Looks like Obama's legacy is going to be, "We will put men in women's bathrooms."

The news media got all up in Trump's face when he came out immediately saying that the Egyptian Air disaster was "yet another terrorist act." Some saying we shouldn't jump to any conclusions. I even heard one pontificating putz say that as the plane "only" had 66 souls aboard it wasn't a high profile enough target to warrant the attention of terrorists and that it wouldn't make a "big enough splash" for their purposes.  Can we drop a couple of these assholes into the Med. from 37,000 feet and see how big a splash they would make? Can we sell tickets?

So now of course we get wall to wall coverage of the event once somebody who knows what they are actually talking about uttered the words "possible  bombing".

Will any of these media douchebags point one of their crooked little fingers at Hillary or Obama and speculate that it might have something to do with their feckless Middle East policy?

Meanwhile instead of doing that, they will get their panties all in a  Over/under because the Republicans in the House shot down another piece of LGBT legislation.

On a related note I have to wonder how many month after the election Hillary and Huma come out of the closet as lesbian lovers. I'd say carpet munchers but some might think that that was offensive to Muslims. Oh wait Huma is already a rug sucker, why not a carpet munchers ad well? Or perhaps it will be Obama and Reggie posing for the cover story in "The Advocate".  Ah one-upsmanship among the Democrats, got to love it. Over/under Dix months anyone?

What with Loretta Lynch having her hands full trying to keep the lid on the Hillary investigation and shove sexual freaks into little girls rooms at school is she going to have time to defend Obamacare from all the insurance companies that are filing suit to force the government to pay the reimbursements the legislation requires?

Maybe not because she's to busy working with HHS trying to figure out a way to push the coming massive premium increases out past the election in the second prong of the "Defense of Hillary" operations.

Just another boring Thursday. I might need a cup of coffee.

Creating A Moralless Society.

The American economic and political model,as opposed to the British Imperial one, wasn't built upon enslaving more and more people as part of its forward projection. Just the opposite. No where have we ever built machines of mass slaughter as the British did in India or the Nazi and communist did across their empires.

Yes we had slavery, and it's immediate dissolution was an insurmountable obstacle to national unity at the Constitutional Convention. However that very Constitution put in place structures and indeed obstacles to its long term growth and the power of the states where the practice still held sway.

The genius of Hamilton's vision was that a developing domestic industry would build the physical machinery that once applied to agriculture would make slave labor economicly inefficient and obsolete. His failure was that he could not foresee the intransigence of the Southern plantation class's stuborn rejection of industrialization and social modernization or the England's willingness to exploit it for their own gain and to undermine the republic tself.  

Our founders for the most part envisioned steadily improving social and economic conditions, not impossible dreams of government enforced perfection. Perhaps their greatest vision was their realization that social conditions and technology will always drive what is perceived as best for current and future generations and the key to that was keeping government out of the way of individual inventiveness as much as possible. The struggle between Hamiltonian individualism and natural progression and Jeffersonian egalitarianism goes on.

Rather than grasping that the American Revolution and its Constitutional government were natural out growths of the Magna Carta, the Enlightenment and the traditions or parliamentary representative government they doubled down on their opposition to everything it stood for. The result was not only the War of 1812 but was also a contributing factor in  Southern intransigent opposition to industrialization and clinging to a cotton/slavery based economy that remained largely dependent on English textile production as a source of income.

Had they instead entered in an economicly and politically cooperative relationship a hundred and fifty years earlier, not just with the US but with the rest of their colonial empire, human social and economic progress for all involved would have advanced far quicker and perhaps would have averted a lot of unnecessary wars and death.  Indeed socialism itself may have never set root beer as deeply as it has.

So now here we are, approaching two and a half centuries into our history and we have all but fully regressed into the moralless, might makes right perspective of British Imperialism. We have all but forgotten that our Revolution was based in a desire to bring morality into the structures of government and international relations.

The Torment Of Hillary Clinton Gets More Delicious By The Week.

Poor Hillary, after tonight's results in Kentucky and Oregon she must be soiling her Depends®. The nomination, indeed the Presidency was supposed to be hers on a silver platter in 2008. Then the usurpor Obama stole her glory.

Now after eight more years of fecklessness, corruption and incompetence, Obama's, Congress's and particularly her own, public disgust has brought forth Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. All Hillary can do at this point is watch as her prize once again appears to be slipping from her grasp and hope that she can out run the primary process.
All eyes will be on California. If she loses there by any kind of margin it may well be Hillary and the Democrats that face a brokered convention and political chaos.
If anyone had written the story of this year's political season as a piece of fiction, no publisher would have touched it. They would have dismissed it as too absurd to be believed.

The Collapsing Left South Of The Border.

Fully engaged as we are in our own tumultuous political season, the growing chaos in Latin America is getting little attention in most American media outlets, particularly those on the ideological left. I have no doubt that they see it all just to embarrassing to their own undisguised political bias.

Although some outlets have recently brought themselves, however grudgingly, to finally declare that the "Bolivarian Socialism" of Venezuela has indeed failed, you won't find much in-depth analysis of the causes of the failure, namely that socialism itself breeds the corruption that destroys the nations where it takes root. Completely absent will be any perspectives that the emerging human tragedy in Venezuela, the political crisis in Brazil, the just announced indictment of the former Argentine President for corruption and the various other states of general lack of development, all grow from the root of the same poisonous tree, collectivist socialism.

Call it what you will, Bolivarian Socialism, Peronism, Jesuitical egalitarianism or just plain old naked communism. They all stagnate at best or utterly fail because of the belief in the corrupt notion that government must provide "positive rights" as opposed guaranteeing "negative rights".

Such a statement of course requires that we define those terms before we go any further: Never mind that I personally think that, as with most leftist arguments, they have deliberately reversed the terms to distort the readers perception of intent, we will go with their terms for the momment as it won't really effect the my deconstruction of their argument.

To understand "negative rights" one need not do much more than carefully read the Preamble to and the text of Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution. It very clearly explains that the American founders understood that governments are a necessity of large societies, but that it is also a double edged sword that must be held in check lest the society they are intended to protect and foster slip back into the kind of tyranny the Revolution was fought to rid us of.

As to "positive rights", the concept was pretty much summed up in the last two elements of FDR's "Four Freedoms" speech, "freedom from want" and "freedom from fear".

While negative rights are limitations on the power and authority of government they are also positive affirmations of the supremacy of the individual over the collective just so long as the exercise of individual liberty does not impede others from exercise those same liberties for their own benefit.

Positive rights, on the other hand, while sounding all warm and fuzzy and oh so magnanimous are inherently destructive of the individual's rights to freedom from government interference in the exercise of liberty. The government cannot give to one individual or group of individuals with one hand what it has not taken by force from other individuals and groups of individuals with the other hand. This is of course a very simple concept and balance of logic, but it is the very thing that the collective leftists want considered in any political or economic analysis.

For the collectivist wealth is a finite quantity and government must intervene to provide some equiminious distribution of its limited amount. The individualist however realizes that wealth is produced by the action of the individual acting within the boundaries of a free exchange system. Those boundaries must include prohibitions of monopolies, trade restricting cartels as well as trade restricting government regulation and taxation structures that incentiveses moving those very wealth producing operations to foreign locations that in turn interfere with the individuals right to access to the job market and thus his economic and political freedom.

This is the basis of the Hamiltonian argument that the economic responsibility of government is to act in the national interest by fostering the means of internal production and transportation and the means of conducting trade internationally, not owning and controlling the means of production and distribution.

So now we can return to the subject of how, within these established contexts, "democratic socialism", to use a term currently popular with leftists, is failing in such a dramatic way.

It is because governments dare not to put limitations on human "freedom from want" or the social interference that comes from trying g to produce "freedom from fear."

Government of every tyrannical stripe and degree have tried again and again to produce these utopian fantasies. But what they actually become are communities of the equally poor, equally hungry and equally afraid. Except of course for the "Leader" and his or her minions who live in same mansions of the rich that they railed against before, directing the confiscation of the means of producing wealth, making their operations work at only a fraction of the efficiency of before because by eliminating competition they destroy efficiency and drastically reduce the profit needed to feed their dreams of egalitarianism. What they don't reduce is the amounts that they skim off from the top for their own personal benifits.

Then through bad decisions and inherent corruption the system breaks down to where either the people react to Constitutionally remove and punish the corrupt leaders, as we now seeing in Brazil and Argentina or the corrupt government uses the military and police as instruments of repression against popular anger and uprising over empty store shelves and empty stomachs. As is now happening in Venezuela.

Unfortunately throughout Latin America the traditions of government as provider of goods rather the protector of rights is old and well established. So what we get are the never ending cycles of rapid and violent swings between governments of utopian redistributionist fantacy and outright military repression.

Unfortunately for us north of the border the same fetid dreams of egalitarianism and economic redistribution by force have taken hold. Unless we soon return to more sane perspectives of individual rights and thr freedom to produce as the primary driving force of society and the economy that built our nation in the first place, we are in danger of slipping into the same pit of instability and indeed want and fear we see unfolding before us in Latin America and Europe.

Russia, China and Islam await the chaos  seeking to fill the voids to feed their own never long gone dreams of empire.

My Red Badge Of Courage

Your humble correspondent has just received a most distinguished honor. It would appear that I have gotten under the skin of the oh so self-righteous and sanctimonious, dare I say it ASSHOLES, at National Review. Calling out George Will and the rest as a bunch of bitter losers who have just been told that no they don't own the Republican Party and the rank and file voters no longer feel any obligation to either listen to them or acknowledge their existence has shown them up for what they are, a bunch of thin-skinned whining little crybabies with George Will leading the pack.

Please feel free to scroll through the logs of my disqus alter ego, FVS. You will readily note the big red "Removed" flags coming mostly from National Socialist Review.

Dear George and NR, I hope you will enjoy you bourgeoning irrelevance. I know I will. Being blacklisted by you neocon con artists is a badge of honor!

David Cameron, The UK's John Kerry.

In short he's an arrogant asshole. His latest statement that if the UK leaves the European Union if could result in war, is such patent stupidity it defies reason. While much of the rest of Europe has as come to the conclusion that they are already at war with an invading army of Islam, Cameron openly declares his cluelessness, because that is what he has been told to do do by the globalist elites in the City of London.

Closing the Trap, An Addendum

What is clear is that much of the material in question originated from within a "SCIF" (Special Compartmentalized Information Facility).

Anyone who has worked within such a facility knows that no one is allowed to remove information from within a SCIF in an electronic format, unless it is encoded and being sent to another SCIF that has been cleared to receive such information. This is done to protect not just the obvious information in the document but more importantly the metadata behind it that is an espionage operation's wet dream.

Computer systems within a SCIF are programed so that simply plugging a thumb drive into one will set off an alarm in the security office traceable to the specific computer and the individual logged onto it at the time.

Paper copies of any material are only allowed to be removed AFTER they have been reviewed and if necessary edited by the facility's security office to remove any traceability to original sources. Additionally any such paper removals are supposed to be logged by date, program, name of the individual removing it and the name of the security officer doing the review.

It certainly appears that the Clinton run State Department had some serious holes in their security set up. Gives a whole new meaning to "most transparent administration ever."

He Just Can't Help It.

Back in November I published a short piece titled "John Kerry Is Still An Asshole".

Mind you I still don't think that this steaming pile of elitist garbage is worth much ink, but his commencement speech today at Northeastern University condemning Donald Trump's plan to build a wall on the Mexican border and telling the graduates that thry should prepare for a "borderless world" only reinforces my previous conclusion.

He is correct that no wall will stop all determined terrorists from commiting their evil acts. Yes John, we know because your administration has already allowed rafts of them entry, as was recently demonstrated in San Bernardino. This low grade moron however thinks that that means we should just leave the windows and doors open and give them an open invitation to walk on in.

On second thought, asshole just doesn't cover it. Kerry is a profoundly corrupt man of evil intent. He is the epitome of the globalist con game that Trump condemned in his recent foreign policy speech. To call him a mere asshole is an insult to other assholes. Apparently he suffers from having his alimentary canal working backwards, because what comes out of his mouth is nothing but shit.

Closing The Trap.

Recent headlines declare that some of Hillary Clinton's closest advisors have already been interviewed by the FBI. The stories further clame that Hillary will be called for an interview within weeks.

Hillary is going to have to do some very careful maneuvering to avoid being caught in the narrowing gap between a rock and a hard place.

One the one hand the FBI can't compel her to to answer any questions. On the other hand a string of "I refuse to answer under the protections of the 5th Amendment" answers in the midst of a political campaign is some pretty damaging optics.

So much for the rock. The hard place being that although she may think she has a certain degree of certainty as to what her aids were asked and answered, she can have absolutely no certainty as to what information the FBI has from other sources that contradicts their answers or could contradict hers. Additionally each of those aids was told before leaving that they were not to discuss their interview with anyone other than their attorneys, under penalty of obstruction of justice charges. That then presents her with another jagged lobe of the aforementioned rock. Namely lying to an FBI agent during a criminal investigation is itself a serious felony that carries real prison time. Just ask Lewis "Scooter" Libby.        
Just this week during an interview with Andrea Mitchell she was asked directly if there was any evidence that her email server had been hacked. Rather than answer that she was not an expert in computer forensics so couldn't answer with certainty, she answered just as directly, "no". She had to take the risk. To answer otherwise she would have appeared incompetent, reckless or both.

Neither Clinton nor Mitchel may have realized it at the moment but this might prove to be what is called a "gotcha" question. Seeing as the FBI has the server and rafts of computer forensics technicians you can bet that they already have a definitive answer of their own to Andrea's question.

One cannot be sure either way if Hillary is absolutely certain in her answer or is simply being short sighted, covering her ass or supremely arrogant in her answer. You can bet however that if the Bureau has any evidence to the contrary they will weave a careful series of questions to not just investigate the comings and goings on her email server but to also catch her in a lie.

To think that there aren't elements and agents within the Bureau that would love to hang Hillary's scalp from their belt and cynically don't care what they get her for is supremely naïve. Again, ask Scooter Libby what happens when you get caught lying to the FBI.

If I might exercise a bit of my own cynicism, this is a women who said in another recent interview "I don't believe I have ever lied to the public". A weasel statement if ever there was one that pretty clearly reveals that she thinks that there are lies and then there are lies. Can there be any doubt as to why some 40% percent of people in her own party have said they regard her as dishonest?
