A Dead Letter And A Ticking Time Bomb

The Hildabeast has just received a notice in her "personal" e-mail inbox.  You know the kind, the ones that says there is a registered letter waiting that requires her signature. Sent from a no longer enthralled media and post marked from Hypocrisy in the state of Arrogance and Corruption.

I have no doubt that Hillary feels the media's having turned a blind eye to Obama's incompetence and naked corruption for nearly 8 years, was simply going to be one of those gifts she was entitled to inherit among with the Oval Office.  Too bad for her the world's events have taken on such an accelerated pace that the not even the formerly fawning sycofants at the New York Times can keep up as things slip from their grasp of control.  Like trying to hold on to a fist full of sand, the harder they squeeze the more slips through their fingers.  That a lifetime of incompetence and corruption may now be catching up and turning Hillary into a political dead letter is a blessing the measure of which I doubt many can fully appreciate.  That Tommy Carcetti err Martin O'Malley from deep in the political sewers of Baltimore, is being considered as a viable alternative just indicates how politically bankrupt we have become.  But that's another story.

As bad as the prospect of another Clinton in the White House may be, I find the prospect of another Bush as bad if not worse.  Both families are unrepentant globalists. While the Clintons are just old fashioned bought and paid for avaricious liars, the Bush family are establishment elitists with a track record snatching defeat from the jaws of victory and thereby laying the foundations for the resurgence of the enemies of Western Civilization stronger or more dangerous than they were to begin with.

George H. W. Bush gave away Reagan's victory over the Soviet Union by assuring that the communists and communism would not be punished for their horrific crimes against humanity.

His elder son ignored the historical precedent established in the victory over Japan.  Namely that of forbidding the inclusion of the religious precepts that had been the basis of their aggression from the new government.  Shinto and Emperor worship were banned, not as a religion but as an institution of government.  George W. Bush gave the new governments of Afghanistan and Iraq carte blanche to make Shria a basis of their new constitutions.

The world's reward for their incompetence are a resurgent and revanchist Russian imperialism and an ongoing political, military and religious conflict in the Middle East and North Africa that grows more out of control every day.

Granted that nearly eight years of having a naked Islamophile and communist in the White House have more than contributed to and exacerbated the chaos.  I shudder to think what kind of surrenders to tyranny Jeb Bush would dream up beyond his already clear signal that our southern border will remain wide open to any and all who wish to enter.

Every election season the talking heads declare that the next election is the most crucial ever and that "our side" must win.  If it's a choice between Bush or Clinton the election will already be lost ...... for all of us.

The succession of either another Clinton or Bush to the Presidency would seal the fate of the American Republic and our beloved Constitution just as surely as Augustus's reign sealed the fate of the Roman Republic and Senate.  The institutions will remain but only as toothless and impotent facades lending a rubber stamp to an Imperial Presidency that already sees no need to either consult with or submit its proposals to a Congress that sees itself as a servant of government rather than the people.

Unlike in Rome here there remain a great many here who still believe that the citizens remain sovereign.  There is much uncertainty and chaos in our future. Whether or not that principle remains intact in whatever emerges from the other side remains to be seen.

Russian Revanchist Tears

I simply cannot be the only one who grows weary of Russian revanchist tears over how “put upon” they are by the rest of Europe and the world in general.  Well Boo Freaking Hoo.  Since just when have the Russians ever approached the outside world with anything but an attitude and actions of belligerence, intimidation and straight up racism and violence?   The only times that there has not been some sort of dictatorship in charge there was nothing but utter chaos that simply laid the groundwork for the next batch of dictators and oligarchs.

The word revanchism was practically invented to describe Russian longings for lost empire and territories.  Don’t ever expect the Russians to ever acknowledge that all those former Tsarist and or Soviet captive nations declared their independence at the first opportunity because they were sick and tired of Russian hegemony, oppression and occupation.  Apparently the Russians and the Islamists have a certain factor in common; the belief that once a territory falls under their control their rights of self-determination are gone, forever expunged and never to be restored.

The latest batch of belly aching from Moscow is that the Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are bringing in NATO supplied heavy weapons to defend their borders from Russian provocations.  Tough luck Uncle Pooty.  The last time I looked these sovereign and independent nations had twice before been occupied and absorbed by Russians and like the Jews who survived the Holocaust they have vowed “Never Again!”  Who can blame them?  Both the Tsarist and the Stalinist deported and or executed any “uncooperative” locals by the hundreds of thousands and then deliberately and forcibly moved Russians into to their stolen and vacated homes and jobs.  The Soviet era of occupation came as a result of a despicable deal the Russians made with Hitler; a nasty bit of work for which they were never held accountable.

Now the new Russian Oligarch complains about “mistreatment and discrimination” against ethnic Russians in the Baltics and Ukraine.  If Putin and company really cared for them they would be volunteering to repatriate their “countrymen” and apologizing to the Baltics nations for the hundreds of thousands who died or disappeared into the Gulags never to return, all at the hands of his beloved Russians. 

Putin’s government has supplied thousands of ethnic Russians in the Baltics, even those born after their independence was declared, with Russian passports.  This in itself should be considered a violation of international law and a violation of these countries internal affairs.

Chamberlain and Daladier, Hitler and Mussolini may have gotten away with negotiating away Czech sovereignty while forcing them to wait in the other room, but I don’t think the Baltics are going to sit back and see the process repeated at their expense.

Yes Dear Children.........

Yes dear children there is an evil in the world.  It is a disease that infects the mind.  A plague that springs back no matter how many times we think we have killed it.  The infection is spread by evil men who seek power and control by sowing its spoors in the minds of the poorly educated, the weak willed, the lazy, the na├»ve.  They convince these poor people that their nation's problems, even their individual problems, are not because of their own ignorance or human failings.  Their problems exist because they have allowed some outsiders to exist among them.  These outsiders aren't like us.  They don't look like us.  They don't eat the same foods as us.  They don't worship the same as we do. Why they even speak their own language! 

We like to think that society has made progress, especially in these last few decades.  But have we really?  We talk about diversity but it's a sham used to disguise even older prejudices.  Yes we've made progress, we're more sophisticated in our bigotry now.  We accept people of all colors and creeds just so long as they agree with our brand of political orthodoxy.  We even accept Jews!  Just so long as they aren't those evil Jews that we can label as "Zionists".  Hell we might even accept their right to exist just so long as they don't do it in their own nation!  And especially as long as they don't dare to defend themselves!  We opened our arms to them (and their money) when they marched beside us during the civil rights and anti war movements of the 1960's but should their most basic right of existence be threatened we turn our backs to them at best, or worse, repeat the libels of the past.   The worst of us are those who refuse to condemn the repetition of these ancient libels even as we recognize them for what they are and know full well where they lead.

Many a nation and people in this sad old world are in trouble today and it is because WE, WE THE PEOPLE, have failed ourselves.  We have failed to guard our liberties, we have failed to be responsible for ourselves.  We have taken the easy road of listening to and  electing corrupt and greedy people who have plied us with false promises that they will guard our liberty, that they will be responsible for us, that they will provide for us at someone else's expense. 

Well now all those false promises are being exposed as the naked and deceitful lies they always were and what do we do?  Do we blame these corrupt and greedy people for their deceits and lies?  Do we purge those that stole our liberties, that led us into dependency?  No, we buy right back into the oldest of lies from the same deceitful mouths. 'It's not our fault, it's the "outsiders", it's the "tribe", it's the "Zionists."'  Underneath it's all just new use of old words for the same old scapegoating and Jew hatred that is thousands of years old. 

In the aftermath of the Nazi horrors of  the Holocaust the entire western world joined with Europe's surviving Jews in the cry of "Never Again" and the founding of the modern state of Israel.  But now, just as our national cemeteries fill with last survivors of "the greatest generation," that evil that they so sacrificed to overcome is born anew.  I don't think it is mere coincidence, but rather the fulfillment of prophesy; "Do not rejoice in his defeat, you men. For though the world has stood up and stopped the bastard, the bitch that bore him is in heat again."  Brecht on Theatre (1964) edited and translated by John Willett.

The German Theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer died at the hands of the Nazis fighting this evil.  He warned us as well.  "Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act." 

Are there bad people in this world?  Yes.  Are some of them Jews?  Yes.  But it's not anyone's characteristic as a Jew or a German or a Russian or an American or white or black that makes them bad or even evil.  It is their personal decision to embrace evil that makes them so.  If we want to find the causes of the worlds problems and their solutions, we had best start with a long gaze into the mirror and remove the splinter from our own eye first.  Anyone who tells you that the solutions lie in victimhood, and condemning others for who or what they are by the accident of their birth is an idiot and a fool or a deliberate agent of evil seeking to lead you into its trap.
