Putting Lipstick on the Globalist Mafia’s Ukrainian Pig

Information Cartel Carries Water for George Soros

I listen to some mainstream media because one ought to know what the talking-points and narrative of the day will be that one must confront and break through to see the truth.  Now that it’s clear that there are only a handful of shows anywhere that will tell you anything like the truth, it’s time we start cleaning this mess up to the degree we are able.  The reports I am seeing and hearing in mainstream media suggest that “Putin is desperate,” and he’s “increasingly isolated” or “becoming unhinged.”  If you’re seeing these same reports, let me suggest to you that you carefully pay attention to the motives behind those telling you these things.  Of course, none of us are on the ground in Ukraine, so it’s hard to know with any precision what is true, but the thing you can assume is that the first reports of any event are going to be mostly false.  There is propaganda from both sides of the war, but Western media has decided to go “all in” on whatever propaganda the Ukrainian side prefers.  Putin is a monster, they tell you, and I have no doubt that from certain perspectives, he is.  On the other hand, you should know that there are plenty of monsters to go around in Ukraine, and many of them are not Russian.  Some of the worst monsters in the situation in Ukraine are people like Victoria Nuland, and the people she represents.  If you were thinking that as a Deputy Secretary of State, she represents the people of the United States, you’re tragically mistaken.  She represents the real enemy of the American people.  Ukraine is not what you’re being told, and no amount of lipstick applied to this pig of a situation can possibly conceal the truth.

The other problem in Ukraine is that most Americans don’t know the first thing about that corrupt buffer-state in Eastern Europe.  Many don’t know anything about its history, or how it came to the situation in which it now finds itself.   Portrayed in the West as purely the victim of Russian aggression, Americans are expected to believe the bilge the media spews, without ever noticing that the country of Ukraine has extensive problems that pre-date, and indeed have contributed to, the invasion you’re now witnessing.  I can’t possibly recount here all the history of Ukraine, and particularly the history that plays a thorough role in what you’re now witnessing.  What I can tell you is that some people have tried to document some of it, including sometimes mad-cap film-maker Oliver Stone.  While I don’t agree with many of the conclusions he seems to reach, he does a fair job explaining the side of this argument you haven’t heard, and that makes this documentary worth watching.  Made in 2016, long before the current crisis, Ukraine On Fire documents much of the history of the Ukrainian problem, told from a point of view that seems somewhat sympathetic to the Russian position.  Still, even with the bias, it’s interesting that so few Americans know anything of the opposing arguments, but have heard the Western position twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week, since the beginning of this crisis:


As I said, I can’t endorse everything that Stone presents, at least in the manner he presents it, but there are some very important takeaways that Americans must recognize as true upon deeper reflection upon their own experiences.  For instance, in the Summer of 2020, you witnessed the beginning of a color revolution in America, and had Trump been re-elected, you would have experienced its full fury.  Notice that groups like BLM and Antifa, responsible for nearly all of the mayhem that rocked the United States in the run-up to the Presidential election, employed tactics like those of the revolutionaries in Ukraine in 2013-14.  In point of fact, the same people funded it, pushed it, assisted, aided, and abetted it.  Had Donald Trump been re-elected rather than having been cheated out of a second term, the same basic approach was going to be used to depose him as had been used to remove Yanukovych in the so-called “Revolution of Dignity.”  People who watched the entire affair in the wake of George Floyd’s death will see the similarities.  Understand that the same group of people who caused the Ukrainian President to flee to safety in Russia in 2014 were intent upon doing the same to Trump in 2020 or 2021, had he been re-elected.

Once you realize that similar tactics were employed, right down to the martyrs who were mere useful idiots of the protests, you realize that there were more similarities than you’d otherwise dare to suspect.  The corporate media represents a particular view, and where there is insufficient corporate media, it was created in real time to support the revolutionaries.  We saw some of this here, with a proliferation of Youtube Channels the purpose of which seemed to have been to assist the coordination of BLM and Antifa anarchists.  Big Tech is neck deep in all of this.  They repeatedly tell you they’re ‘defending Democracy’ while they simultaneously do everything they can to undermine it.  What else could be the meaning of Mark Zuckerberg spending hundreds of millions of dollars in 2020 to influence the outcome of the election, or now, to assist Ukraine by permitting for the calls for violence and incitement against Russians on the Meta/Facebook platform?  Do you realize yet how you’re being set up, again?  Zuckerberg’s organization helped spread the word and assisted the Coup-plotters in Ukraine in 2014, and they did the same with BLM/Antifa in 2020 here in the US.   George Soros spent millions in Ukraine, as he’s spending millions more now, but the way he spends it is most important:  He uses seed money directly in the target country, while bribing politicians with indirect support, in order to get them to spend billions on his pet projects in the US and abroad.

When you listen to Foxnews and the panel tells Newt Gingrich essentially to shut up about George Soros, you know the fix is in. Here’s a reminder of how that went down:

This is the sort of stifling that has happened with contrary information about SARs-CoV2, the COVID vaccines, Hunter Biden’s laptop(s,) and now Ukraine.  The information you’re being permitted to see and hear is only approved information in most cases.  People are now talking about how Putin is isolating his people from information, but that’s a two-way street.  Western governments are likewise isolating their own populations from information.  Why do you really think Trump was kicked-off Twitter and Facebook and Instagram?  Why do you think Parler was submarined by the Big Tech oligarchs who control Apple, Google and Amazon Web Services?  All of it is about limiting the information to which you have access.  Dan Bongino likes to play the Soviet National Anthem when talking about the Big Tech oligarchs for this very reason.  He’s lived it.  Indeed, the Stone documentary above was kicked off Youtube to prevent you from seeing it.  This is a clear indicator of how dangerous these people think certain information is to their plans.

Do you really believe George Soros only seeks to influence elections in the US?  He uses his money to help foment “color revolutions” around the globe, and one of the ways in which he uses these revolutions is to profit from them.  Soros made the bulk of his wealth wrecking currencies.  At this moment, Soros is in the process of an all-out attack on Russia’s Ruble, and he has the complicity of the United States and most of the EU in so doing.  Recently, Soros published an op-ed that called for regime-change in both Russia and China.  He remains entirely dishonest and misleading. Here’s one example:

“In July 2021, Putin published a long essay arguing that Russians and Ukrainians are really one people, and that the Ukrainians have been misled by neo-Nazi agitators. The first part of his argument is not without some historical justification, given that Kyiv was the original seat of the Russian Orthodox Church. But in the second part, it was Putin who was misled. He ought to have known better. Many Ukrainians fought valiantly during the Euromaidan protests in 2014.“(empahasis mine.)

The statement “Many Ukrainians fought valiantly during the Euromaidan protests in 2014” makes it seem as though Soros is an outsider simply observing these events, but the truth you already know from the Stone documentary above, from other articles previously published on this site, and from other sources:  George Soros was up to his neck in the 2014 protests that ultimately became a coup d’etat in Ukraine.  This is not open to debate.  That this was manned by people flying the neo-Nazi symbols of WWII collaborators of Western Ukraine is not a mistake.  Even now, the so-called Azov battalion are augmenting Ukrainian forces.  Their roots lie in the deep history of Ukraine along with the color revolution that Soros spawned in 2014.  Color revolutions are what Soros does, and it’s part of his mechanism for generating new wealth.  With the influence he now owns in the US, he basically now considers the US mostly a matter of “Mission Accomplished.”

He goes on a bit before concluding, but I’d like to you to consider the sort of bilge Soros here asks you to swallow:

“Meanwhile, Xi seems to have realized that Putin has gone rogue. On March 8, one day after Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi had insisted that the friendship between China and Russia remained “rock solid,” Xi called French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to say that he supported their peacemaking efforts. He wanted maximum restraint in the war in order to avert a humanitarian crisis.”(emphasis mine.)

Who here believes, having learned about the plight of the Uyghurs in China could become convinced that Xi is even remotely concerned with averting any humanitarian crisis anywhere on Earth?

He concludes with this gem, and there’s a tell in here if you pay close attention to what this madman actually believes:

“It is far from certain that Putin will accede to Xi’s wishes. We can only hope that Putin and Xi will be removed from power before they can destroy our civilization.”(emphasis mine.)

A casual reader might be led by this statement to believe with the use of “our civilization” that Soros is talking about the traditional Western civilization you and I consider “ours.” Nothing could be further from the truth.  Soros didn’t write this as an opinion piece to be consumed by you and I.  Instead, this is an order sent out publicly to his minions around the globe, and his message is clear: Take out Putin and Xi because “our civilization” is endangered, but by “ours,” he does not mean yours and mine.  He’s talking about the vast criminal enterprise he and his coterie of corrupt globalist politicians have put in place to dominate the world.  He’s saying it in the open, even though he’s using veiled language.  More, in the beginning of the article, he confesses having set up another of his NGOs in Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and in each of the former Soviet states, including Ukraine.

What has happened these last twenty or so years is that Soros has been booted-out of most of these countries, because Putin quickly realized that Soros was slowly but surely intent on driving color revolutions in each and every one of these former Soviet republics, including eventually Russia.  This has been the base of operations for vast global political corruption, not merely in the former Soviet republics in question, but reaching their tentacles across the globe, including particularly Europe and the United States, but also in Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Africa, and South America.  Soros’ network of organized gangsters is global.  While Vladimir Putin remains a dangerous murderer, it makes a great deal of sense to understand a bit of where his mind is.  You’re not being told this, because on balance, most Americans would firmly plant their feet onto the solid ground of “not my monkey, not my circus,” refusing to play along with the latest of Soros’ global power plays.  At worst, you might even call for the United States to abandon that sphere forever, and there’s simply too much cash to be had there.  How do you think Mitt Romney and Joe Biden and a whole laundry-list of other American and Western politicians are so deeply entrenched in the goings-on in Ukraine, of all places?  While certainly not on “our side,” meaning yours or mine, Putin is more like the enemy of my enemy, not with respect to the people of Ukraine, but of their actual attackers over the last two decades who have used them as guinea pigs for the biological and pharmaceutical research that’s been conducted with the willing “consent” of these desperately poor people.

These Western profiteers, whether Soros, or the American or European politicians, and the large corporations who have been raping Ukraine for two decades do not want the gravy train to end.  Back in January, they got another setback to “[their] civilization” when a color revolution they helped to foment was stopped in Kazakhstan.  In a way, this contributed to their current desperation to hurt Putin in Ukraine.  Their money laundries are being closed down.  If you wonder what’s going on, I suggest you look closely at this angle.  Remember that Karim Masimov, the former Chief of Kazakhistan’s Intelligence, effectively the equivalent of the Director of the CIA in the USA, was accused of having conspired in high treason for helping to carry out a coup by working with the same band of global gangsters led by Soros, among others.  Notice the picture in the linked article.  That’s right, you see a picture of some familiar faces on Mr. Masimov’s right.

This brings us to the next problem Mr. Soros now faces.  His color revolutions in and around Russia have been stymied, at least for the moment, but he’s got another problem, and it’s a difficult one.  Putin may hold some information on Biden and his son, along with the activities of other Western politicians likewise involved.  This is a serious threat to “[their] civilization” because Biden is currently refraining from undercutting Putin in any serious way.  I believe they have an operation in motion to get to Putin, and the future duration of Biden’s presidency is entirely wrapped-up in the success or failure of their ability to “go get him.”  If it fails, and Putin remains, Biden may be forced to choose between “[their] civilization” and his own son.  This is why the Western Information Cartel has made Russian contributions to world news increasingly opaque.  There are certain stories they cannot afford to have exposed.  Hunter Biden is now a liability, as may be Joe Biden himself.  Soros may have to play that card, and pull the plug on Biden.  That may not, however, be enough.  They need to free-up NATO to go kinetic against Russia.  The “Neocons” and others screaming for war on the approximate, putative political right in the United States are pushing hard against Biden.  These people are compromised too, most of them, and they’re in bed with Soros one way or the other.  Don’t delude yourself on this: The United States Senate is ultimately controlled almost entirely by sell-outs to the United States.  Lindsey Graham and Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio are far from alone among those who will happily do the bidding of their masters.

If we get to the next round of this rolling catastrophe, Taiwan will present very similar themes all ’round.  Hunter and Joe are every bit as compromised by Xi’s CCP, perhaps even more than they are by Putin.  Many Western politicians fear this most of all.  Xi is only now coming to understand that Soros and his crowd have been using the last thirty years to infiltrate his country too, and indeed, much of the Pacific rim.  This is why Soros’ op-ed piece, linked above, contains a warning as much or even more to Xi than to Putin. He desperately needs Xi not to back Putin on anything here, but the fact that Xi has sent mixed messages on the matter have left Soros quite angry.  Xi has figured out that Soros would happily foment color revolutions in Hong Kong and Taiwan, as well as in mainland China.  Xi very much fancies himself the next Mao, or the next Deng, but more probably, bigger and better than either.  Xi exudes confidence and not a little arrogance.  Soros is here warning Xi that he’s now on the list too.

I’d ask readers to consider some important questions worth pondering.  Let us begin with the information war, and the way in which the Western Information Cartel is conducting it, not on behalf of Ukraine, but on behalf of “[their] civilization.” Consider what you have been told, all simultaneously:

  • Putin is on the run, or getting desperate, or his forces are failing(or some version of this narrative)
  • Ukrainians are heroically fighting-back, preventing Putin from capturing territory
  • Putin is destroying Ukraine, flattening it everywhere, without regard to civilians
  • Putin doesn’t have the ability to reliably project force over the battle space
  • Putin conducted a strike on a training base in far Western Ukraine

Some of these are assessments, by “analysts.” Others are from commentators.  Still others are provided as facts.  Some of these may be true, but they cannot all be true simultaneously.  Remember these other things told you by the same Western Information Cartel:

  • Trump colluded with Russians to hack Hillary’s email and otherwise get dirt on her and also secure their help in rigging the 2016 election
  • Trump said there were good people on both sides(implying he was simply talking about the protesters and counter-protesters – and all counter-protesters were white supremacists)
  • SARS-CoV2 is a lethal virus that arose naturally in bats and jumped to humans in a wet-market in Wuhan
  • Hydroxychloroquine is a dangerous drug that can cause significant heart problems and doesn’t work against COVID
  • COVID-19 Vaccines are perfectly safe and effective
  • The 2020 Presidential Election(and indeed all elections that November) were the safest, most secure in history
  • Oil price increases and spiking inflation are mostly due to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine

Do you begin to see a pattern?

  • Ghost of Kiev
  • Snake Island
  • Zelenskiy’s “ammo, not a ride” quote that wasn’t

There are many more, and you must begin to ask yourself to what degree and how frequently you’re being played by mainstream media.  The Western Information Cartel is staffed by people largely sympathetic first and foremost to George Soros and his coterie of corrupt globalist cannibals, who fancy themselves compassionate while they simultaneously feast on average people anywhere the hunger strikes them.  These people are gangsters, and their small errand-boys in the media simply follow orders.  This is how they can in one moment tell you that Putin has carried out a devastating strike in far Western Ukraine, but in the next, provide analysis claiming that Putin is incapable of projecting power on the battlefield.  The two notions are entirely incongruous.

Consider too this recent controversy in which Mitt Romney, one of Soros’ boys, accused former Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard of treason for daring to question the narrative about bio-labs in Ukraine.  Romney came unglued.  All Gabbard did was to ask some pointed questions based on the information publicly available.  Romney’s reaction was clearly one of a man worried about some darker truth being unearthed.  Here’s TheHill‘s take on the controversy:

After seeing Romney’s reaction, it’s clear that he’s worried about something not obvious to the rest of us.  His reaction was very defensive, and his former aid’s involvement in Ukraine may be the key. Whatever is motivating Romney’s attack on Gabbard, it’s clear that he seems quite perturbed.  Pierre Delecto isn’t happy with Tulsi.

After a little inspection, you start to realize that somebody’s applying lipstick with a trowel to the pig that is the situation in Ukraine.  Either Ukraine is doing much more poorly than we’re being told, or Putin truly is a lunatic.  Since I’ve seen plenty of evidence to disbelieve the second, and no evidence at all to dissuade me of the first, I’ve begun to believe the Western Information Cartel is simply telling us a gargantuan lie.  Why? To what end? Surely, if this is so, it cannot change the ultimate outcome.  If Ukraine is actually in a much worse military state than the media now suggests, what would be their object? It’s a stall-for-time tactic.  One thing for which they’re clearly stalling is the finalization of a nuclear deal with Iran being negotiated by Russia.  I’m still not certain as to why the nuclear deal is so deadly-important to the Biden gang, and presumably also the Soros club.  The more immediate idea is to prevent Ukrainians from understanding how bad their situation really is across the entire battlefield, and to try to buoy their morale so as to extend their will to resist.  The idea is likely to give time for an anti-Putin operation to succeed.  At this point, it may be the only way the money-laundry and corruption-den that has been Ukraine these last twenty years may be salvaged by Soros and his gang, and they’ve invested a lot of money there, and with it, a ton of yours via the State Department, the Department of Defense, and countless other US agencies and departments.  That’s right.  You’re paying for this however it shakes out.

What The United States Must and Mustn’t Do

Saturday, March 12th, 2022

The new Red Line we must draw and enforce

I’ve listened with a great deal of patience and forbearance as various people in media and government have made the case for increasing US involvement in Ukraine.  I thoroughly understand the moral impetus that the suffering of the Ukrainian people invokes, and I also understand better than most of these commentators the potential costs of an expansionist Russia.  In 1985, I faced the satellite states of the USSR across the border frontier of walls, fences, minefields, razor wire, machine-guns, sentries, and the ever-present watchful eyes of surveillance from the East.  I was also there in 1989 when the wall came down, and in my estimation, West Germany too quickly embarked on the path to re-unification with their Eastern kin.  I watched in stunned silence as Western politicians ignored the potential dangers of unilateral disarmament in pursuit of phantom “peace dividends” through the 1990s.  I watched as these same leaders launched an assault on Yugoslavia under the banner of “peace-keeping” whilst pretending Slobodan Milosevic was Adolph Hitler, and enforcing a partitioning of that country, creating new states out of the remains of that nation.  I watched as the post-9/11 United States carried on one war, and launched another in pursuit of Weapons of Mass Destruction.  All of this I’ve watched, but never has any member of our government answered any of my questions or listened to my complaints.  Instead, they ruled without reference to the opinions or desires of the American people, but now they’ve placed us to be in position to fight a war potentially worse than any of us have ever known.  They are making their case using our emotions against us, but I’m having none of it.  If there’s something the American government must do, I can tell you what it should do, but also what it mustn’t do.  The answer to their current taste for war must be a resounding “no.”  Instead, if we believe the intentions of Russia to expand Westward are genuine, we must draw a new red line, but this time, we must prepare to enforce it.

Ukraine is not a member of NATO, and it doesn’t have any particular treaty obligations from or to the United States.  Like every other American, I look at the imagery coming out of Ukraine, and I feel badly for the position in which the people of Ukraine now find themselves.  On the other hand, Ukraine is not formally our ally, and despite the fact that our leaders over the last two decades have used our wealth to get them to carry out policies in their country that our corrupt leaders may have liked, they are not entitled to the defense of their country by the people of the United States.  It’s really as simple as that.  Ukraine is not a vital strategic interest for the United States.  For Ukraine, that’s the unfortunate truth.  All the rest is kaffee klatsch nonsense.

For those on the other side of this debate who claim that Russia is intent on expansionist designs, and that they should be stopped in Ukraine, I must dispute their assertion.  The answer for NATO, if we believe that Putin is building a new and improved Soviet State is not to defend Ukraine, which is now effectively lost, but is instead to begin building our defenses in the neighboring NATO states, to an extent and with a fervor that Vladimir Putin would never dream of crossing a new line that we should make unmistakably and indelibly red.  NATO has already shown itself to be unable and unwilling to defend much of anything, and it has fallen into disrepair on a scale that would be embarrassing if their leaders had any sort of conscience at all.  If you want to stand Putin down and limit his expansionism, then the way to do it is to immediately require all members of NATO to contribute four percent of their GDPs to the alliance, which would be a doubling of their current commitment that many are not now meeting.  Other defense spending should not be counted in that number.  When Germany, the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Poland, and all the smaller members of NATO along with the United States begin such a campaign to strengthen their defenses, training-up their forces, and conducting large joint-force training missions on a theatre-wide scale, it is very likely that Putin will stay put and go Westward no further.

Missile defense in the West must become a thorough priority.  The securing of shipping lanes and air-transport routes must become the norm instead of the exception.  We ought to be ramping-up a cold-war style notion of isolating the Russians, but also the Chinese Communists in Beijing, in precisely the same way we had done during the Cold War.  Yes, if we believe there is a real threat of expansionism on the part of Russia, then we must take the same sorts of steps that we had done for nearly one-half century.  This is not irrational, because if the threat is real, then this is the way we will ultimately be required to answer it in any case.  We cannot simply insert ourselves into the battle space of Ukraine, at this late date, expecting anything but the worst possible outcomes.  Russia may not be the Soviet Union, but it is still a lethal potential adversary, and its strategic nuclear arms have few parallels.

If the United States or one of its NATO allies, acting as proxies, should instigate a war with Russia through clear involvement in Ukraine, it would be an invitation to a catastrophe far worse than the one now playing-out on the ground in Ukraine.  Volodymyr Zelenskiy complained bitterly that this is all simply rhetoric, and that rhetoric cannot save his country.  It’s a very tardy realization from a man who’s been accepting rhetorical flurries as assurances from Western leaders, particularly from the United States.  He should have realized while conducting offensive operations against ethnic Russians in the Eastern provinces of his country, that at some point, as his government continued to poke the bear, the Russians were going to enter to find out if Washington DC’s substance matched its bellicose assurances to Kiev.  Those assurances were as empty as the treaty he had failed to obtain.  He should have sought admission to NATO after stabilizing the situation in the Eastern provinces.  Instead, at Washington DC’s invitation, he pursued a quick-and-dirty admission into NATO, like the con-artists who tries to purchase an insurance policy to protect his car after he’s wrecked it.  Seeing this coming, thanks to Biden’s administration placing this knowledge into the pipeline of intelligence through Beijing, Putin didn’t wait any longer.  Europe too has told him, via the European Union, that Ukraine won’t be permitted under current circumstances to enter that body.  He’s been cut loose.

Zelenskiy is running out of negotiating time.  Once Kiev falls under sustained attack, I believe Putin will close that window.  Even now, it will be Putin’s intent to encircle that city and cut it off from reinforcements and relief.   Once that’s complete, Zelenskiy’s bargaining chips will be few.  The best he might now obtain is to come to terms with Putin’s basic demands that Ukraine recognize Crimea as part of Russia, recognize Dunetsk and Luhansk, and basically write neutrality into the Ukrainian constitution.  In the longer term, I expect Putin to grab everything East of the Dnieper River.  I now believe Zelenskiy’s best remaining option may look like the orange line in the map below, yielding most of the territory East of the Dnieper, but it doesn’t change the fact that NATO must draw a strong red line if there’s any evidence at all that Putin’s expansionist ambitions are real:

This may be the best Zelenskiy can do

Those who shriek against this notion are relying too heavily on emotion, and too little on logic.  It’s undeniably the case that Ukraine has been sacrificed by the Biden administration.  The sensible thing for Zelenskiy to do now may in fact be to sue for peace and meet Putin’s terms.  It’s a terrible blow, but he must also be circumspect.  If he drags this out, it will be the innocents who suffer.  Putin should suffer for his actions, but in truth, so should the monsters in Beijing and in Washington DC who have enabled him.  Others in the region should think a great deal about this map, and particularly the red line I’ve drawn. If Russia is really bent on expansionism, every state west of that line, from Estonia in the North to Moldova in the South must take it very seriously.  If Russian intent is really to expand once again, then no nation West of that line should take the matter lightly. There were reports on Friday evening that Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett had advised Zelenskiy to accept Putin’s terms.  This is not a message from Israel, so much as it’s a message from Washington DC.

As for people to be taken lightly, now comes the DC war-crowd of people who are Republicans and fancy themselves “hawks.” This list includes a number of Washington Republicans who do their best to keep their swampiness on the down-low in campaign seasons.  They’re in favor of providing additional air-power to Ukraine, at least insofar as they want the Polish Mig-29s transferred to Ukraine, along with air-defense missiles and other air combat related resources.  These people are stepping directly up to the line, spitting across it, and daring Putin to spit in return.  Here’s the letter:

2022-03-10-senate-republicans-ukraine-letter-to-biden

This foolishness is the sound of morons stomping their feet in order to satisfy that segment of their respective electorates who think with uninspired and imprudent simplicity that “something must be done.”  Of course, it’s mostly nonsense, but to the degree there is anything serious about it, the Biden administration will likely do nothing to pursue meeting their demands, so that in the end, they’ll be off the hook with a “Well, we tried.”  The rest of the electorate, who opposes the war, either won’t see it or will forgive it when faced with electing a Democrat instead.  It’s that thing which is preferred widely in Washington DC:  A cynical but safe play. It’s another fan-dance.

The real answer to all of this is that there’s no reason of merit to send Americans into war in Ukraine, whether over land, by sea, or in the air, and no reason to militarily poke the bear.  It could be argued at this point that providing additional aid to Ukraine merely forestalls the inevitable, or even worsens what will be the ultimate death toll.  I’m not suggesting that Ukraine surrender, but their options are expiring.  Ukraine must make the best decisions for their own country that they’re able, but with every passing hour, the moment in which their leadership is deposed by warfare accelerates.  Zelenskiy may be a personally brave man, not fearing for his own life, but surely he’s not so motivated by bravado that he doesn’t understand his actual predicament.  The West is not coming.  They’ll be just as happy if the Russians take the place over entirely, disappearing Zelenskiy into a gulag or worse.  They simply have too much dirt to hide, so that placing it out of reach and under Russian control is simply too inviting a prospect to ignore.  Who more than Joe Biden himself hopes that Ukraine will simply go away?  Hillary Clinton?

The other question about the notion of American involvement in any conflict under current leadership comes down to a serious matter that we’re confronting daily, and will continue to confront us until Joe Biden is hauled out of office, whether by election results, impeachment, indictment or by an undertaker.  It’s one thing to have a figurehead reshuffling papers and executive orders, carrying out bureaucratic tragedies, but it’s something else again to have him conducting a war.  Troops in the field need to have confidence that their chain of command is complete, in good order, and of sound mind (politics aside,) but it’s entirely clear that this man is not capable of wartime command.  Frankly, neither is Kamala, nor is Barack Obama who is orchestrating all of this from his various bunkers and basements, whether in the Martha’s Vineyard, in DC, Hawaii or some billionaire’s yacht.  There is no situation under which the United States should seek combat of any kind while this man remains in power.  He’s simply not capable of it, and as a largely illegitimate president(one can claim otherwise, but that makes of them a liar or a dolt,) who has great difficulty conducting a press conference, there’s no situation in which he should be commanding the Armed Forces of the United States in time of war.  To send troops into harm’s way under such a commander-in-chief is an abominable idea, and I thoroughly condemn the advocacy of any notion to the contrary.  Only in such circumstance as the United States comes under direct attack should this man be in command of anything, and should it come to that, may God (or whomever you may worship) have mercy on your soul.

If we believe the threat of Russian expansionism is real, then we must begin immediately to act to stop it.  Our opposition must be relentless: We must arm the West as though we intend to actually fight to stop it, and we must remember that China and Iran must be included in any containment strategy.  These are every bit as dangerous to our nation and our way of life as Russia, and we mustn’t make any pretense to the contrary.  Even now, China is warning that the US shouldn’t seek to create a NATO-like organization in the Western Pacific, but that is precisely what we should be doing.  We should be getting together with South Korea, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Taiwan for exactly those purposes.  In Europe, our red line must now become bold, but it must be drawn along Ukraine’s Western border.  Moldova, which has applied reportedly for membership in the EU ought to be offered the umbrella of NATO if the other members can now agree, and their Eastern border must be muscled-up as soon as possible.  Their time is already running-out, if expansion of Russia is the goal.  The fact that we’re not now looking ahead as to how we can strengthen NATO makes me question the claims of worry over Russian expansionism.  After all, if we really believe this is the intention of Russia, then we should be acting as though Moldova is the next step.  It should also be the case that if we believe that this is what Russia intends, we must immediately withdraw from negotiations with Iran in which Russia is acting as a deal broker.

Naturally, I don’t think that there’s any way the Biden administration will withdraw from these talks, just as I don’t believe they intend to stop Russia.  The real Russian Collusion is the Iran deal(JCPoA,) and it is the most important thing(to them) in which the Biden administration has been engaged since the beginning of the administration.  As long as they’re on the hook for that deal, they’re not going to make any real demands to or provocations against Putin’s Russia.  We’re being betrayed by the regime in Washington DC, and this fact more than any should turn Americans away from war on behalf of Ukraine.  Instead, if you want to direct your ire and bellicose denunciations at the real tyrants driving-up your oil prices in ways no other enemy could match, I can tell you their famous address: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

It’s even on google maps…

 

The Crisis of Truth in Ukraine

Thursday, March 10th, 2022

What don’t they want us to see?

One of the problems you face in trying to discern what’s going on in Ukraine is the almost complete black-out of facts on the ground.  We’re simply not getting much information, and while we get reports of things that happen, many times, too frequently in fact, these reports are later debunked or revised in such a way as to make what’s really going on very murky and unintelligible.  On Wednesday, there was a report of a maternity ward in a hospital being struck by the Russians.  I’ve heard no follow-up reports, but I don’t consider the story factual until I see some sort of confirmation that it’s real.  We’ve all been burned too many times already in this conflict, by ridiculous fake news, almost all of it either for the Ukrainians, or against the Russians.  “Snake Island,” “Ghost of Kiev,” “I don’t need a ride, I need ammo,” “radiation leaks,” and on and on.  The number of false stories coming out of this conflict, combined with the complete lack of solid information on casualty counts on either side suggests a number of things to me, and all of it is that the gas-lighting is on an epic scale.  There’s no truth in any of this. On Wednesday, Bongino referred to the problem as a “Crisis of Truth.” It’s worse than that. We have a crisis of facts, due to a stunning lack of them.  Do we know the truth?  No.  Can we know the truth?  I don’t know, and I don’t believe anybody else in the West can tell you otherwise.  I’m going to tell you what I think is happening, and what may happen. I’m also going to tell you why I think it’s happening.  These are not facts, but they are educated guesses based on the slim facts we have.

Russia is grinding it out.  Things are not going easily for Russia, but unless something else changes markedly, they’re going to defeat the Ukrainians.  The invaders have all the material, manpower, and technological advantages.  Even Ukraine’s planes are aging Russian models.  Russia largely controls the avenues of approach into Ukraine, except in the most extreme West of the country, but again, the ability to move any substantial amount of supplies or war materials into Ukraine from the West will be severely hampered.  Russia clearly controls the areas along the Black Sea coast, so there’s no material by ship that’s going to make it in.  Even now, it seems the latest disposition maps I’ve seen suggest that Russia is slowly encircling the major cities, and the area East of the Dnieper River seems to be almost entirely in Russian control. Since this region is a majority-Russian-speaking populace, it seems as though Putin may have an increasingly firmer grip. In the far North, we know Putin already shares control of the Chernobyl nuclear plant site with the Ukrainians, just as he does now at the large power plant in the center of the country, the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, located on the Dnieper River.

From the Russian perspective, securing the nuclear sites makes a good deal of sense.  Preventing saboteurs from turning nuclear plants into gargantuan dirty bombs is an important task any invader would be likely to undertake.  One would also expect that if the invaders intended to restore normalcy to an area after pacifying an area, they wouldn’t want to wreck the entire electric infrastructure.  Reports from other areas in the country likewise suggest that the Russian forces may be avoiding unnecessary damage to infrastructure, again suggesting they intend to restore normalcy quickly rather than over decades. This very much flies in the face of the narrative that Putin is a mad-dog wild-man intent upon razing Ukraine utterly to the ground.

Reports now suggest that upwards of two million Ukrainians have fled the country, most for refuge in Poland.  Ukraine forces are under-equipped, and highly demoralized.  Worse, some portion of their forces may have been encircled or nearly encircled in the Eastern section of the country.  On the other hand, the Ukrainians are fighting a defensive war, which means they have the advantage on the turf they still hold.

The issue that came to a head on Wednesday is the matter of biolabs in Ukraine.  There had been a fair amount of rumor-mill level information circulating around the Internet that suggested there were bio-warfare labs in Ukraine, and that Putin was going after them.  Let me try to clear the air on this, since certain conservative hosts seem not to grasp any of this material, while others at least recognize the implications: If there are bio-labs in Ukraine that have been handling dangerous pathogens, then Putin will certainly be able to make the claim, a la “Weapons of Mass Destruction” that he had a right to pre-emptively attack Ukraine to reduce/eliminate the threat.  What could the United States possibly say in opposition? “But Bruh, we’re the good guys…

There are those who have claimed, on behalf of the US government, that these labs are of a defensive purpose only, but let me be more honest: If you have the sort of research labs that’s handling Anthrax, you can just as easily weaponize your research products as not.  More, there’s information that one of the labs was collecting genetic material in which they were seeking only white Russian RNA for experimentation.  Why would a lab in Ukraine do that? That doesn’t sound innocent at all, and once you realize that the US Department of Defense was involved, one can’t understate the potentially diabolical nature of such research.  The fact that Victoria Nuland claims they’re now concerned about the disposition of the labs, and imputing a Russian offensive intent to capturing the labs suggests to me there’s something nefarious that has been going on in Ukraine.  Fifteen of these labs throughout Ukraine were being funded by DoD to at least some degree.  If, and I stress the IF, this turns out to be a collection of real biolabs with weaponization capabilities, then Russia has a legitimate claim that the United States was funding bioweapons on their border, and this would make US the bad guys. I cannot tell you how thoroughly disgusted I am with all of this.  These people, who funded the labs with our tax dollars, all of them, each and every one, needs to go to jail if there is any evidence of weaponization and weapons research for several reasons. First, that would violate the 1972/75 Biological Weapons Conventions. Second, it would likely violate US law.  Third, it could be seen as an act of war or certainly provocation of one.

The other thing I’ve been hearing reports from Ukraine include the fact that the Ukrainian forces are making combat emplacements among civilian homes and facilities in order to stymie Russian advances, knowing Russia is attempting to avoid civilian casualties.  The Russians have been making announcements in some areas, warning civilians to stay out of certain areas in which they intend to attack.  If the story of Ukrainian forces sheltering among or placing weapons among civilians turns out to be true, they are guilty of war crimes by using civilians as shields.

As for the role of the United States in the overall crisis, the following has become undeniably clear:

  • They don’t want to stop Putin yet…They may be looking for an opportunity to set-up Putin with a nuclear, biological, or chemical false flag
  • They will not provide Ukraine any significant weapons of self-defense
  • They’re happy to try to goad other NATO members into stepping into provocative territory
  • They want Putin gone, but they still need his help with the Iran deal
  • If they can’t control Zelenskiy themselves, they’ll happily cut him loose to the fate Russians have in store, if they don’t whack him themselves

One of the other things that’s really beginning to cause my eyebrows to raise is the lack of statistical data on the dead and wounded.  We received reports of incidents here and there, but isn’t it odd that the same media that kept a ticker on dead Americans in Iraq, and deaths and infections from COVID (but only while Trump was in office,) are suddenly disinterested in the statistics? One would think that if it’s all as brutal as we’ve been told, there’d be some sort of, dare I say it, “body count” for either side.  Instead, there’s nothing of the sort.  Given all the coverage of wars I’ve witnessed going all the way back to Vietnam, blaring announcers in grave voices stating the hard and ugly results of war in numerical terms has been a feature for as long as I can remember, until now.  Why should today be different, suddenly?  They ordinarily use these statistics to horrify us and to turn us against whichever war is being prosecuted at the time.  Why are they treating Ukraine differently?  It’s not that I’m a ghoul, but one of the unmistakable evidences of war is the grim reality of the wounded and the dead, and media has been only too willing to show them to us in the past.  I find it highly suspicious that we’re not being shown any of that in the war today.

More and more, as I listen to the coverage, I’ve come to wonder if we’re even given enough information to discern the truth on our own.  Ordinarily, the media gives us just enough to be able to figure out what’s going on, even if they lie entirely about an event’s actual meaning, as is their custom. Now, we get none of this. We get grainy footage, blurred by motion, or static pictures in which nothing is going on, and at most, we’re looking at an aftermath of something, but what happened there and who did it is obscured by time.  What we don’t get is any live footage of ongoing combat. The closest we get is something like an artillery piece, or other long-range or indirect fire weapon firing, with no context about where it’s occurring or what the target of the artillery fire might be.  Where are the media embeds with their satellite up-links?  In the modern context, this “coverage” simply isn’t.  They’ve also cut off all Russian media, so there’s no counterpoint of any kind, and no real-time footage coming from them either. The lack of video of the fighting give me the same feeling I had in the wake of January 6th when the Capitol Police would release little camera footage from among the 14,000 hours they had captured.  Why would you conceal it?

On the Ukrainian side of things, we now have the spectacle of President Zelenskiy accusing the West of doing nothing, which in some ways is definitely true, but what is galling to me is his demands that the West come to his aid.  Here is the spectacle of a beggar waving his fist at those he would have provide him charity.   When asked about the danger of escalation, he remarks that any such dangers are unknown or unknowable, and with that, we should simply ignore the risk.  At least for me, there’s something offensive about a country’s leader telling Americans that they’re to blame, and that he’s not worried about the blowback from any escalation on our country.  It’s just a little bit galling.  We’ve already provided much more support over the years than I would have approved, had I been given a choice. (Of course, that sentiment applies to many more nations than Ukraine.)  Here’s video from an interview by Sky News:

The accusations flying back and forth over the biolabs situation has not abated, and Psaki issued a blanket denial of US involvement in bioweapons labs in Ukraine, and called Russian and Chinese accusations of this “conspiracy theories.’  When Jen Psaki says a narrative is a “conspiracy theory,” you can be virtually certain that the opposite is true:

I think this is made plain, at least in part, by Victoria Nuland’s own remarks to Senator Rubio on Tuesday.  I’ll re-post the video here:

Notice that Nuland says there are concerns that these biological materials could fall into Russian hands?  Why would there be concern if there’s nothing dangerous there, as Psaki later claimed?

The question for Americans is rightly: Who’s lying?  It’s not a question any longer of whether you’re being fed lies.  The question is: Among all the liars involved, which of them is currently lying to you?  Maybe all of them are liars to some degree.  We can’t know, but the very fact that we need to speculate underlines the problem.  I don’t trust any of these people.  As I covered earlier, people I’ve trusted for a long time are now unreliable.  From the point of view of somebody covering this story, it’s a catastrophe.  There’s no way to know anything with certainty, and at least for the moment, it’s being kept that way. This crisis of facts is the underpinning of Bongino’s “Crisis of Truth,” and I see no evidence of the crisis relenting.

 

 

 

 

The Enemy Is Here

Wednesday, March 9th, 2022

One needn’t go abroad to find our most lethal enemies…

It’s no longer a matter of debate.  The media and the US federal government are now the enemy of the American people.  They’ve colluded to lie to you about virtually everything.  Still more in would-be conservative media have apparently unwittingly walked into the trap, and have added themselves to the media and government propaganda machine.  You’re being scammed.  They created a false narrative about Ukraine.  They created a false narrative even about Putin.  They created a false narrative(still under construction) about their new Iran deal(JCPoAv2.)  All of this is being done without the consent of the American people.  Instead, they punish you in their alleged efforts to punish Putin.  If the American people had an idea what is happening to them, rather than sanctioning Russia or anybody else overseas, the American people would levy sanctions against their own government.  You can go around the world seeking out enemies to conquer, but the truth in 2022 is that if you’re a citizen of the United States, living in America as you always have, your truest and most lethal enemy is inside the DC beltway, and in the high-rises of Manhattan.  Don’t go looking elsewhere for the enemy laying siege to you.  The enemy is here. Their war is against you.

Some number of the American people haven’t been fooled. They get it. They understand that almost nothing they’re being told is true. Consider some of the lies you have been told in just the last few days:

The cause of the inflation and fuel price increases is Ukraine, and Russia’s invasion of it. Is this true?

Retail Gasoline Price Rises since Biden’s Inauguration

While it’s clearly true that we’ve had roughly $0.70 gain in prices since Putin invaded Ukraine, we saw nearly $1.50 in price increases prior to the invasion since Biden was inaugurated but before the invasion. So around sixty-five percent of the price increases in fuels is all on Biden.

You were told that Zelenskiy said “I don’t need a ride, I need ammunition.”  We now know that was a fabrication.

We were told two weeks ago that the idea that there were Bio-Labs handling dangerous antigens in Ukraine with which we had been working was a fabrication and conspiracy theory, but yesterday, we learned that this too was a lie, but worse, they’re going to try to flip the script on Putin and Russia. Victoria Nuland should thank DeepState Little Marco for the assist:


This quote from Victoria Nuland needs to burn into your brain as though from a cattle branding-iron:

“…it is classic Russian technique to blame on the other guy what they’re planning to do themselves.”

This is what the DC Mafia does. We watched them do this to Trump for more than five years.  We’ve seen it repeatedly, and here they are using it on Putin, but also against us.  You should begin to get the idea by now that there’s nothing about which these people in Washington DC won’t lie.  We are the intended targets of the lies, and as I explained yesterday, part of this plot is focused on getting you and your congressional representatives to go along with their new Iran Nuclear Deal, known as JCPoA.  We still don’t know why they are so desperate for this new deal, just as they were desperate for the original. It remains the question of our time. All that can be said with certainty is that they are driving all of this, and that they’re lying to us about every bit of it.

Consider the Polish fighter jets story.  Initially, we were told the government of Poland might be willing to give up their Mig-29s to Ukraine, but immediately, that government came out to say that they would not, because it would be an escalation they would just as soon avoid.  The pressure was put on them to do so, so instead, what the government of Poland did was to say, effectively, “Fine, you want the Mig-29s, we’ll relinquish them to the United States, and fly them to a base in Germany for you, and you can do with them as you will, but we’ll need replacement F-16s.” Our DoD immediately came out to quash this because we apparently don’t now have sufficient F-16s for our own needs, and therefore have none to spare to Poland.  The problem in all of this is that we wanted the government of Poland to provide them directly to Ukraine, but what Poland wisely did was to get the monkey off of their backs and put it on ours, effectively putting the United States in the position to decide whether to escalate this conflict.  Poland wasn’t going to be blamed if an East-West shooting war erupted.  Your own government, the government of the United States, was more than willing to have Poland instigate a shooting war, but the US government doesn’t wish to be seen as instigating it themselves.

I said before that I believe the American people are wising-up to this, and I still believe this is true, but the problem is that they’re awakening too slowly. At this rate, by the time they figure it out, and become resolved to do what must be done, it’s likely to be too late.  Either the DC Mafia will have walked us into a nuclear war, or the economy will be so ravaged that most of us will never recover. Certainly, we have enemies of every description around the globe, but the enemy most lethal to the American people and their way of life resides in Washington DC.  The enemy is here.

The hour is late, yet still I fundamentally place my hope in the good sense of the American people.

 

 

 

More Lies: Zelenskiy “Fight is Here” Was Never Said

Monday, March 7th, 2022

Zelenskiy visits rebellion’s front lines in 2019…(AFP)

The propaganda coming from our mainstream media is worse than one might ordinarily imagine.  Yes, we should expect propaganda to come out of both Russia and Ukraine in the middle of war, but we’re smart to give it time to soak before we accept it at face value.  Now it’s been revealed that Volodymyr Zelenskiy never actually said that quote that has been widely attributed to him.  The original source for the quote “The fight is here; I need ammunition, not a ride,” turns out to have been an anonymous “senior American intelligence officer.”  The Washington Post noticed this very thin sourcing, but Summit News did a little more digging. This is what they found.

We’re surrounded by media liars, and people feeding the liars in media. They all have an agenda that isn’t the truth, or your best interests.  We need to be very discerning, and our default setting must be one of intense skepticism.  As I reported earlier, allegedly conservative FoxNews and Newsmax have been caught carrying the DC Mafia’s water, so the number of “trusted” sources of information has rapidly dwindled.  Folks, we need to become the news.  Our own discernment is all that remains to protect us from disinformation, misinformation, fake news, and flat-out lies. As I explained last week, just as politics no longer ends at the water’s edge, neither do the lies.

Levin Nearly Stumbles Into Truth About Ukraine

Saturday, March 5th, 2022

Levin lays out the initial case on March 5th 2017 for Spygate

Only one day after I reflected on Mark Levin’s amazing ability to sift through piles of mainstream media reports to assemble the hidden truth, he very nearly did it again on Friday evening’s broadcast.  He still hasn’t clarified for his audience that the claims of cluster-bombs and thermobaric bombs are unverified, unconfirmed reports, much to my chagrin, but in discussing the goings-on in Washington DC he swerved ever so close to the truth, again.  I keep hoping he’ll step back from the Ukraine story just a little farther, just enough to clear his senses and conquer his emotions.  If he does, he’s a man with the resources and skills to finally sort out the truth of this mess.  At this point, Levin should begin asking himself that question that any good lawyer must do when trying to formulate a theory of a case: What’s the motive driving the behavior of the Biden administration in Ukraine?  I believe Levin is so close to the truth that if he sets aside his emotions about Ukraine for a few moments, and sinks his teeth into all of this, it’s game over.  He’ll sniff it out, and he’ll realize that what’s happening in Ukraine isn’t purely about Ukraine or Putin at all.  That’s the side-show.  That’s the pay-off.  That’s the clean-up on aisle twelve.  He came very near to the central issue, and I hope he soon realizes it.  I believe he could very well blow the lid off of Washington DC for a generation or more. Today, at the last possible moment before the “Eureka!” that should have come, he swerved off down another emotionally-driven side issue.  He’s so maddeningly close that I almost wish he’d happen by this website.  It’s time for Mark Levin to return to his lists of facts and his prosecutorial style.

As a reminder, if you haven’t see it before, or simply need the refresher, this is what it’s like when Levin gets on one of his epic tears, here laying out the case that the Obama administration spied on Trump from Fox and Friends on March 5th, 2017, five years ago today:

The questions you must ask require that you first recognize that the Ukraine catastrophe is not an isolated event, separate and apart from all other events. I urge Mark Levin and anybody else digging into this to consider that we see all the same players involved in all of these matters, from Ukraine during the Obama administration, to the Russia Hoax of the Trump campaign, to SpyGate that extended into the Trump administration, the “Mueller Probe,” the first impeachment, the January 6th event, the second impeachment, and the election theft of 2020.  What’s conspicuous by its absence from this list, that we ought not to omit?  Once we add it to the list, the smoke begins to clear, and it all begins to make more sense:  The Iran Nuclear Deal.  Remember that the Iran Nuclear Deal was only made possible by a sell-out Republican Senator from Tennessee, Bob Corker(RINO,) who concocted a bill that allowed the Senate to bypass the treaty clause of the constitution, ignoring the necessity for a two-thirds vote for its ratification. Combine it all with the situation in Ukraine, and the behaviors of the Biden administration, and it all makes so much more sense.

I won’t tell you that I have all the details, but instead, I’m going to paint a broad-strokes picture.  It would take somebody like a Levin to assemble a clearer picture, and indeed, today, Mark Levin provided another piece of the puzzle.  He is so, so very close, and I believe if he returns to his dispassionate review of facts, and digs into this a bit harder, he’s going to put it together.  I can almost hear the beginnings of the percolating of connections as he covers some of the facts.  What Levin revealed is that the Biden administration is permitting the Russians to negotiate with Iran on behalf of the United States for the new nuclear deal.  Remember the pallets of cash?  There’s going to be much more. Much, much more.  Biden has made concessions to the Russians, which is why this administration won’t do anything about Ukraine.  It’s part of the deal.  This is the part Mark Levin isn’t quite guessing yet, at least not clearly.  Levin made mention of Ted Cruz’s National Security advisor, Victoria Coates.  I hope he posts a link to the paper or article from which he’s drawing this information. (Update: One of my sharpest followers on Twitter found the story here. Thanks @ginthegin! If you don’t already, give her a follow!)

There is more that stinks in Ukraine than just the money-laundering of the Obama-Clinton-Biden gang. I told you nearly one week ago that based on reports of Biden providing security intelligence to the Russians via China, that I believed this was being done purposefully because Putin is going to carry out the cleanup in Ukraine, in exchange for the ability to have his way with that beleaguered, historically corrupt former Soviet satellite.  This is the reason for the ineffective and purposefully ineffectual sanctions against Russia.  In the end, I expect the Russians to control at least the Eastern half of Ukraine, if not the whole.  This is being done with a wink and nod from the Biden administration.  Why?

What would make people of this supposed stature so desperate that they would give up their money-laundry in Ukraine?  What would make people like this yield and let the RUSSIANS(!!!!!!) carry out negotiations on behalf of the United States with Iran?  What would make them do so? Talk about “COLLUSION!”

This is speculation, but Russia would be free to discuss anything they liked with the Iranians, even things quite damaging to the Americans involved, without any worry that it would ever be disclosed.  There’s no FOIA to worry about in Russia.  There’s nothing they couldn’t hide within these negotiations. As long as the final product is something they can shove through the Congress in the next few months, the sausage-making aspects of the agreement will remain forever opaque.  The American people will never know, but Putin will have a permanent lever to use against these people. That lever will be whatever the Iranians already have, or at least knowledge of it.  I don’t know what the Iranians have on the American Political Mafia, but it’s big.  One rumor several years ago, a rumor I could not confirm, was that they had Osama bin Laden. Alive. It sounds just as fantastic now as it did then, but there was always something about the story that rang true.  Of course, an extraordinary story of that sort would require equally extraordinary evidence, so I won’t posit this as the actual dirt, but if you use it as a proxy for the kind of dirt they must have, it would require something of that magnitude to explain the behavior we’ve witnessed.

The problem is that Putin was always going to demand “cash on the barrel-head” from these people. There will be no IOUs with Putin from this gang of American political mobsters.  He needed payment up front, which meant: No sanctions of lasting consequence; any sanctions must be a functional fan-dances, but also, no interference in or substantial aid(particularly lethal) to Ukraine.  Putin is going to clean up the evidence for these “DeepState” players, but the price is that he gets Ukraine, and who knows what else, ultimately.  They pretend Putin’s insane.  That’s misdirection and misinformation: He’s as coldly calculating as he’s ever been. He’s still a murderer, but right now, he’s their contract-killer.

Why? Why would they give up all of this?  In part, the answer lies in the clean-up Putin is doing, but the greater will be in the clean-up he’s doing for them on the new Iran Deal he’s negotiating on their behalf.  Levin has the first part of this figured out.  He sees that the reason the Biden administration is doing nothing effective with respect to punishing Putin is because they’re in league with Putin.  He may not be a team-mate, precisely, but he’s a contractor. He’s a hired hit-man.  He’s behaving as their agent.  If he disappears or outright kills Zelenskiy, so much the better.  Despite what you may have heard, Zelenskiy is no angel either.  He just has better press than his predecessor, and slightly less corruption.  Rather than seeking to protect Zelenskiy, the American mobsters may very well want him taken out.

Why?  I think they’re desperate to make the new deal with Iran.  I think the reason Obama and Kerry and others spent so much time trying to talk to the Iranians during Trump’s presidency was to say “look, we’ll fix this, don’t burn us, we’ll fix it and we’ll get you greater concessions and even more cash. Just stick with us until we ditch Trump.”  Remember Obama’s world-wide private shuttle-diplomacy during Trump’s presidency?  Obama and his crew are being blackmailed by the Iranians.  For what?  They used Ukraine as a cut-out and as a money laundry.  We’ve all assumed it was for mere greed on their parts, but was it something more?  Who else was in on the grift?  The reason they had to bring Putin in was because the Iranians no longer trust the Obama-Clinton-Biden gangsters.  If you can imagine it, the Iranians consider Putin to be an “honest broker,” or at least a devil they’ll trust. He stands to gain mightily in all of this, as he’ll undoubtedly make sure Russia provides them the nuclear expertise to finally build their own nuclear-tipped ICBMs.

This is why they had to dispense with Trump.  It has to be.  Their actions were so outrageous, they pulled every string, they called in every marker, they sacrificed sleepers, and they made their play to steal the election with no regard to how obvious it would be.  They pulled in every RINO, every DeepStaters, they used their corrupt federal judges, they played all their crooked friends at DOJ, including Bill Barr.  They worked every line. Had they gotten Garland onto the Supreme Court, they’d have had this crook in the most important court.  That doesn’t mean they didn’t sneak one in anyway.

You wonder why Amy Coney Barrett and Bret Kavanaugh now look to have been dud picks?  Can you see it?  Washington DC is full of people, everywhere, and in every guise, who are on the hook with this crowd.  They played every angle.  If they’re ever discovered and proven guilty, they’re on the hook for more than election fraud.  This is treason, pure and simple.  This is their gang making war against the United States and her people.

What is it that the Iranians have on these people? That’s what really lies at the bottom of this cesspool.  If Mark Levin figures out that piece of it, and if he can substantially tie it back to the rest of these pieces, he’ll blow the lid off of it all like he did five years ago this week, when he put together the Spygate story, at least the basic guts of it.  I fear for Mark.  These people are ruthless.  They’ve killed other prominent people to hide their crimes.  If he uncovers too much, will he end up like Antonin Scalia?  (Dead in bed with a pillow over his face?  No autopsy, assumptions about his heart conditions and age, a quick cremation, and a family that looks as though they’ve been told: “Hey, everybody can be gotten-to?”)

I know this must all sound a little bit crazy, but I want you, my reader, to think carefully about what you’ve seen over the last dozen years.  Why did Lindsey Graham do a two-year stint as chairman of a committee, shifting from another when he did?  Mitch McConnell didn’t make that play accidentally.  He put Graham there to guide through nominees for a particular purpose.  It’s all very peculiar once you think about it.  Lindsey Graham’s tough-talk about Putin is a smokescreen.  The last thing he wants is Putin dead.  That was a message to Putin.  It was a signal, but not the sort you’d think based on its content.  There’s a reason Kamala is being sent to Europe again, and it has nothing to do with peace.  It has everything to do with avoiding the ever-listening ears of the NSA.  Who better than the 3rd Term of the Obama Administration to understand the capabilities of our surveillance?  It has to do with the fact that you never say over any electronic communications platform that which you do not want overheard, intercepted, or copied by anyone.

The freedom of the Ukrainian people is being sacrificed on the altar of the American political mafia that is the DC UniParty.  Putin is not a mad-man. He’s a hired gun who will be paid handsomely for his efforts.  Crimea was the first installment.  At least the Eastern half of the Ukraine will be the second installment.  Ask yourself what Rosemont Seneca was really all about.  Why did it have dealings with EcoHealth Alliance?  Ask yourself who really got paid after Rosatom secured the Uranium.  It’s the same crowd.  They’re in on all of it.  “I’ll have more flexibility after this election.”  You’re witnessing treason.

If somebody ever puts the full story together, we’re going to discover that these people are willing to see all of us reduced to glowing, irradiated ash, hopefully before they resort to that action.

As one positive note, it’s clear that Levin has finally realized that Bill Barr isn’t a good guy. Score that as a win. One of Levin’s biggest weaknesses is that he’s too easily played by the personal congeniality of these monsters, and they exploit it, and him, repeatedly.  Their real aim is ever to exploit his audience.  Dearest Mark needs to view them all as ruthless killers, smile at them, make nice, and assume they’re preparing to stick a shiv between his ribs, striking them first instead.  (Figuratively speaking, of course.)  We need Levin at the top of his analytical game, more now than ever.  Maybe this time, it will fall to somebody else to figure it all out.  There are amazingly enterprising researchers and investigators still around.  The excellent reporter Julie Kelly comes to mind.  She’s a pitbull when she sinks her teeth into a story.  Let’s hope one of them picks up the mantle if Levin fails to spot it this time. I’m still hoping Mark will put it together. He’s a sharp guy, and I think he’s really close now. It’s too simple and it would be foolishly naïve to think it’s only about the left’s normal agenda of destroying America.  It’s bigger than that, and it’s more brutally criminal than that.  These people are personally invested in seeing this through in a way that suggests they’re covering-up something much more diabolical than the usual political subterfuge.  There’s a reason Obama isn’t enjoying retirement, and it isn’t because he dreams of spending his days wrecking America from his basement in Martha’s Vineyard.  His third term is about the survival of the American political mafia, or the “Deep State,” if you prefer.  They’re all in now.  Everything is on the line. Everything.

Update: At the time I wrote this post, Levin’s show of Friday, March 4th, 2022 was not yet available on his audio rewind page. It is now. Listen here.

Update 2: How convenient: Bill Clinton announces the Clinton Global Initiative is back!  The DC Mafia won’t give up the grift.

Editor’s Note: For those who think the notion that Vladimir Putin could be “in on it” with these people is a ludicrous proposition, I’d remind you: Nothing in geopolitics is ever as it seems. Remember when Putin was loved in Hollywood? No? Remember this, from the era of Hillary’s infamous reset button:

Crazy People Are Driving Us to Nuclear Catastrophe

This is no longer a game

The theme I’ve been circling these last few days have been about the questions we need to be asking, and for which we should demand immediate and clear answers from our government.  It’s clear that there is an element in Washington DC that desperately wants American intervention in Ukraine, and it’s fair to say that at least to some degree, they have actually engineered and precipitated the events we’re now watching unfold.  I’ve written in the past, quite sedately, that there is a segment of our government in Washington DC, and not a minority, that is composed entirely of people who would be only too happy to wipe all Americans out of existence, to rule over our ashes, if that was what would be necessary to protect their political, personal, and financial interests, as well as to protect them from the sort of exposure and prosecution they’re actually, rightfully due. These people have repeatedly and consistently acted against your interests, the interests of all Americans, while filling their pockets and corrupting the justice system in order to avoid punishment for their crimes.  All you need do is consider what they have in store for you.  Now, they’re watching Putin wreck their base of operations, from which they’ve laundered untold spoils.  They’ve become desperate, so desperate in fact that they’re now contemplating how to provoke a nuclear exchange with the Russian dictator.  They don’t care how many millions of you that they will cause to be wiped from existence, or how many will suffer in the aftermath of their war.  As they gin-up a bunch of fake polls to try to support their war, in an attempt to gain some kind of cover for what they’re planning, it’s time for you to begin speaking-up loudly.  They and their pet media need to hear from you. With no effective government that cares even slightly about our interests, We, the people, are now all we have.

The first question I think we need to address is what we’re willing to risk on behalf of the UniParty’s money laundry.  I realize there are millions of people in Ukraine, and I have great compassion for those among them who are complete innocents in all of this, which is most of them. The question before us, however, is whether we are willing to risk nuclear annihilation on behalf of their freedom.  Do we risk the literal existence of the people of the United States for the freedom of a people to whom we have no treaty obligations whatever.  In general, my thought on this is that it’s rather irresponsible for our leaders to even contemplate risking a nuclear exchange on such a basis.  It’s not a matter of compassion for the Ukrainian people, because if we’re substantially wiped from existence, our compassion won’t mean a whole Hell of a lot.  It’s also not a question of courage.  I can fight men with guns and bombs, and presumably, my government is equipped to fight men in airplanes, but there is absolutely nothing I or any American can do to repel, slow, or otherwise impede an ICBM.  Sure, we probably have some strategic defense capabilities, but it’s unlikely those cover the whole of the country. At best, they’ll protect strategic military and command targets, and perhaps the sprawl of Washington DC, and other places to which our National Command  Authorities would flee in time of strategic missile launch.  For you an I, it’s likely to be a really bad day, but mercifully, for some large number of us, the end would be sudden and quick. Those remaining alive would quickly learn about radiation sickness, blast injuries, horrific burns, and eventually, starvation and a miserable death.  Our government long ago gave up any notion of protecting or preserving any substantial number of the American people in case of such an exchange.  If you managed to survive, and avoid the vast clouds of fallout that would blanket the land, and also had some means of avoiding the ongoing radiological threats, you’ll be hard-pressed to find sufficient food, water, and shelter, and there will be sparse or no electricity at all, and it will be decades before it’s restored.  Prepare yourself to live as the frontiersmen did, with the added adventures of surviving a radiological catastrophe.

The next question we would need to ask is if we were to consider risking this, how serious(or how probable) would this risk be?  What is the chance that Vladimir Putin would launch a nuclear strike against the United States?  If the risk were zero, we’d needn’t bother with this conversation at all. We could go forward with whatever maniacal plans our leaders might formulate, safe in the knowledge that Putin wouldn’t pull the trigger, or that if he did, his “gun” would misfire or be perfectly defended. Naturally, the risk is not zero, but is it a five percent chance, or a seventy percent chance?  The media has been pushing a narrative over the last several days that Putin has become disconnected from reality, and that he’s no longer a rational actor.  Even Bongino made this remark today, effectively parroting the sentiments, inadvertently I’m sure, of Democrat analysts.  Let’s assume for the moment that Putin has gone off the rails, at least for the moment.  Do we really want to push a madman to the brink, and to what extent does that increase the probability that he’d launch.  If he’s truly irrational, and I’m not convinced that he is, such a strike might become inevitable were we to take provocative actions of the sort expressed today by Congressman Eric “FangFang” Swalwell(D-CA), who actually suggested that we should deploy our Air Force to engage Putin in combat over the disputed territory that is Ukraine.  Swalwell is calling for making war on the Russian Air Force, pretending that this is in any way different from sending in the Marines.  Not only is he an immoral wanker with the discernment of a rock, but he’s also a perfectly ignorant buffoon, yet this is the sort of advice that are running our government. (I’ll ignore for the moment that he and his friends stand to get insanely wealthy from all of this, or at least get away with absconding with all he’s already pilfered.) Congressman Adam Kinzinger(R-IL), another sick and compromised swamp demon, has advocated the US enforce a no-fly zone over Ukraine.

On the other hand, if the various assessments of Putin are wrong, and I suspect they may well be, then we face a different sort of risk. (And besides, when has our intelligence ever managed to get anything right? The collapse of the USSR surprised them, for instance. They had no idea that its collapse was imminent. They infamously failed to prevent 9/11.  They were wrong, in the main, about Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq. We could go on. And on.)  The problem is that if Putin is perfectly rational(or as rational as a dictator of his general demeaner can be,) then this may be even worse.  He may have established(almost certainly) a set of triggers in his military’s defense policy that will cause certain actions by the West to have certain responses by the Russian military.  If that’s the case, then the point for nuclear launch is already programmed.  This is a serious problem, because while we might guess about what those triggers are, and try to act to avoid them, we’ll never be certain, and if we cross the wrong line in Putin’s national defense strategy, we may ignite a cascade of actions and reactions from which there will be no return.

Tucker Carlson covered some of this on Monday evening, and in this clip, you will see the ravings of lunatic Richard Haass, President of the Council on Foreign Relations.  If you missed it live, as I did, watch this segment:

All of this begs the question: What should the United States of America do?  At present, the overwhelming majority of the American people at once feel compassion for the people of Ukraine, but also do not wish to be dragged into yet another European war, particularly one in which the risks are so high, and the potential upsides for the American people are so vanishingly small.  More importantly, however, I want Americans to think very carefully about this set of facts, the same people pushing us toward a nuclear nightmare are the very people who funded a violent coup in Ukraine in 2014, concocted the entire Russia Hoax begun in 2016, impeached President Trump twice on specious grounds, and effectively conspired with Democrats to steal the election of 2020, and finally to uphold and secure that coup d’etat via the ballot box. That’s who these people are.

Why on Earth would we permit them now to herd us into a third and even more devastating, perhaps apocalyptic world war?  My title suggests that I believe these people are “crazy,” and in one sense they are.  I believe a person has to be mad beyond reckoning to so casually and thoughtless gamble with the lives of hundreds of millions of Americans, never mind the billions of people around the world who would find their world shattered should these people be permitted to carry out their intended war.  What impetus has driven them to this level of madness?  What personal peril must they feel to be willing to risk nuclear war in order to stop Putin?  Putin’s a horrible person, I think we can all roundly agree, and the people of the Ukraine deserve their freedoms, but if the world is engulfed in a nuclear war, what freedoms will they obtain?  What freedoms are possible, beyond the final freedom of the grave? Will there be any graves?  When the US and Russia and everything between becomes a funeral pyre of mushroom clouds, what freedom will we have been fighting to achieve?  What liberty will the slaughtered millions of Ukraine ever come to know?

No. The people advocating this highly irrational course must stop, or if need be, be stopped.  If they proceed on this course, we must not permit this, not by any measure or means, even if we must remove them bodily from their offices to prevent it. They now constitute a reckless danger that means they’re becoming too dangerous to the People and their nation to permit them to carry on in our name.  It is increasingly clear that we are in more danger from the lunatics in the Washington DC establishment than from any threat presently posed by Vladimir Putin.  Clearly, they have either committed crimes already, or other acts for which they seek to avoid any accountability, or they plan future actions that will be equally horrific.  Whichever the case, we cannot afford the prescriptions they now offer, because most of them lead us all invariably to the finality of a sudden and wretched death.  Our president of the United States is clearly incompetent to the office, and while it’s unlikely that his successor will be any better, we must pursue this one step at a time. Biden is clearly incapable of making such decisions, and he’s likely to be guided and steered by the sorts of maniacal loons Carlson discussed in the video above.  We must push for a 25th Amendment removal, but it’s not likely to occur, because those same advisors are the ones who would have to carry it out. At present, they’re able to steer a figurehead.  Why would they give up that sort of power?  If this fails, and it’s likely to, we’re in trouble beyond measure.  Our fates may be controlled by the people who are least concerned with our futures, or if we’re to have one at all.  I’ll leave you to ponder what are choices may come to be, but it’s clear that we must start where we can. We must contact our Senators and Congressmen, and we must make ourselves heard.  These people have managed to make of themselves the most immediately lethal threat to our national security.  They must know that we oppose our involvement, in any way, in the adventures of the maniacs apparently directing our defense policies, and while to be heard, we will need to be courteous, we must also be firm and perhaps terse in our delivery. This is not a campaign we can afford to delay. Time is short, and if these maniacs are permitted to have their way, there may be no way to rescue the situation or our world.

 

Editor’s Note: My purpose is not to cause undue alarm, and I always struggle with the decision to bring terribly troubling news to my readers. In this case, however, there’s no polite, kind, or subtle manner in which to say that which needs now to be said. I wish it were otherwise. I wish our government was such that they hadn’t engineered this looming catastrophe. I wish it, but wish in one hand… You understand my point.  We must deal with that which is, and I wish you all speed and fortune. I never thought I’d have cause to post such a thing. Whether that made me oblivious or optimistic, I cannot say, but if we should manage to somehow survive this, I shall sincerely hope to have no cause to write such things again. Go in peace, but in haste.

Caught in the Crossfire Between Empires of Lies

Ukraine: Caught in the crossfire between empires of lies

I grew up in a large family.  All but one of us children were boys.  Like boys often do, brotherly taunts and squabbles could at time give way to furious fights.  While not unusual, the odd thing about families is that there’s a kind of cohesiveness that generally holds them together when the threats come from outside.  Though at “war” with one another as we at times seemed to be, it was nevertheless true that against outsiders, we quickly rejoined ranks to thwart the interlopers.  Right or wrong, after all, these were my brothers, and our fraternal bonds were far stronger.  Ever did we automatically take one another’s side over outsiders, often without thought and consideration, but by mere reflex of habitual fraternal loyalty. This was our brotherly version of “politics end at the water’s edge.” The problem with this, occasionally, is that at times, it led us to support brothers who may have acted badly outside our borders.  The baseline assumption was ever that our brothers were right, and this was sometimes a mistaken conclusion.  When these things happen on the scale of a family, they can be forgiven as acts of fraternal loyalty.  When they happen on the scale of nations and continents, and indeed the globe, we have a deeper responsibility to examine the actions and intentions of our own brethren.  The folly in failing to do so could be catastrophic. We Americans have been coming to grasp that our government is thoroughly corrupted, and that it bears no resemblance to the ideals it renders as a mask.  “Truth, Justice and the American way” have been replaced with “Justice and Truth are what we tell you, and that is the American way.” Is Putin’s allegation true in any measure?  He says the West, starting with the United States, has become an “Empire of Lies.”

Self-appointed President-for-Life Vladimir Putin is a professional liar.  To be in the intelligence operation of the former Soviet KGB is to act as the bodyguard of a colossal set of lies.  Make no mistake about it:  Putin is not a trustworthy man, and all of his words are laced with falsehoods, half-truths and distortions, all aimed at disarming his audience to make them easier to overwhelm.  His work truly is the province of pure information warfare, but like all such warfare, it relies on kernels and nuggets of truth.  If he were to suggest that Zelenskiy is the agent of aliens, or that Joe Biden is a failed alien-human hybrid, we’d be right to discount everything he says.  What makes some of his propaganda somewhat successful, I’m afraid, is that he attacks at our points of true weakness:  He attacks our Western governments’ most fundamental lies.  This does not mean that we should take anything he says at face value, but in examining his words, we should be careful to heed the dangerous truths he’ll happily employ to sow chaos and dissention among us.  It is those small but glaringly significant truths we must hasten to address, not in answer to the Russian dictator, but in honest and truthful appraisal of our own condition and situation.

Where the Western foreign policy and intelligence establishment is concerned, we have been an “Empire of Lies” for many years. One can go back much further in our history than the post-World War II environment to find lies, but they became systematized and ingrained beginning roughly during the Second World War.  This is when the first widespread programs of war propaganda were employed by the United States, not merely against its enemies, but particularly against its own citizens.  Remember “Rosie the Riveter?” She was a fictional character used to implore more women to join the war’s industrial workforce.  Whether it was good or bad; right or wrong, it was war propaganda deployed against the American people.  Many countries produced this sort of propaganda.  In some instances, such propaganda was disguised as “news.”  Soviet Russia was a gargantuan producer of war propaganda.  At some points in the war, propaganda and the ferocity of the fighting it inspired was their most important weapon.

Nowadays, propaganda is generally more nuanced, though outlets like PBS and NPR do their best to engage in full-time propagandization.  One way or another, it’s in everything you will see or hear from those outlets.  It’s in their news, but also in their programming for children.  It’s in everything.  Of course, the private-sector media is little different.  They tend to be somewhat less obvious, most of the time, but their messaging is polluted with propaganda of some sort virtually every minute of every day, in this case on behalf of paying customers, some governmental, but also some in the private sector.  This is how you get to the spectacle of CNN, with a huge proportion of its current sponsorship being the large pharmaceutical companies, like Pfizer.

Over the last several years, any person who pays even passing attention to the so-called “news” cannot help but notice the frequency with which stories are later shown to have been mistaken, wrong, or entirely fabricated.  Lately, it seems everything we hear in so-called mainstream media is a lie.  It’s gotten so bad that many people now assume that to get to the truth of a story, all they need do is simply turn on MSNBC and believe the exact opposite of whatever its anchors spew, and they’re not far off.  “Reverse-viewing” our mainstream media is not a bad tactic, and more people are now employing it.

What astonishes me most, however, is how many of my fellow Americans simply forget from time-to-time what it is that they’re listening to, or who actually crafted the messages they’re hearing.  A good example at this moment in history is the War in Ukraine.  How much of the “news” we’re receiving is real?  How much of it is fabrication?  Somehow, some people who are ordinarily, rightfully skeptical of our media seem to adopt the notion of fraternal suspension of doubt when we get to the water’s edge.

I will not here allege that Vladimir Putin is a “good guy.” I don’t believe that for a moment, but my own biases about the dictator aside, I must ask, if I’m to be honest:  How do I know anything at all about Putin?  How have my impressions about him been formed, and is it unusual that they’re almost uniformly bad?  Remember in 2016 when Trump made mention that Putin was a  strong leader for his country?  What Trump was stating quite factually, in the way he does, is that Putin, whatever else you might say about him, is a strong leader for his country.  Whatever else I might say of Putin, this seems to be true.  Do you remember what happened next, after Trump had made this pronouncement?  Yes, the whole world of American politicians, Republican and Democrat alike, shouted him down with a cacophonous, screeching rebuke.  The media mocked him, the late-night “comics” lambasted him, and he was roundly presented either as a rube or as a stooge.  Why?  Even if he had been wrong, surely potential voters would recognize this and turn away.  You see, the problem was that he challenged a long-nurtured, well-constructed, widely-disseminated narrative about Vladimir Putin.  That was Trump’s central offense at that moment.

It’s not that I think Putin’s right to invade Ukraine — quite the contrary — but there are some truths we must examine in our own back yard even as we confront him.  The so-called DeepState, spread across countries and continents, really is that Empire of Lies about which Putin speaks.  They lie to us systematically, and they defraud us consistently.  They use the intelligence assets for which we pay against us, and even against our President.  To call the DeepState a “cabal” is to understate its reach and influence by many orders of magnitude.  Pointing out this particular Empire of Lies does not, however, make Putin our friend.  What it should cause instead is that we seek to remove and demolish the DeepState before it can cause us a catastrophe.  It won’t make the problem with Putin disappear, but it might prevent the next one.

After all, as I covered on Sunday morning, the Biden administration, through its agents, officers and operatives, made certain that the most threatening view of Ukraine be presented to Putin.  Would Putin have invaded Ukraine had he not been led to believe its membership in NATO was imminent?  It was this same “Empire of Lies” which left him with that unambiguous perception.  We may never know how much this particular manipulation played into Putin’s actions against Ukraine, but it almost certainly didn’t help matters.

Put it another way: How many of the people now sternly denouncing Putin either have some interests of their own in Ukraine, or have clear associations with this “Empire of Lies?” Notice that even now, as the West announces more sanctions against Russia, including banning Russian banks from the SWIFT payments system, what they struggle to de-emphasize is the single word: “some.” One must read beyond the headlines in this era of entirely propagandized media narratives.  The headline blares:

US and EU ban Russian Banks from Swift system in latest sanction

What they omit from the headline is a single, but important word: “Some.” This is done to conceal from you the whole truth, by telling you a lie by omission. Many people read only headlines. Often, truths like this will be buried deep in a story, or even in a linked sub-stories.  This way, they can later have claimed to tell you the truth while trying to engineer some cheap mis/disinformation.  Clearly, Western “mainstream media” is a fully functional organ of the “Empire of Lies.” When you dig around in this story, and chase the story across many platforms, “some” gives way to “select.”  Then “select” gives way to “key.” In the end, you realize that this is a mostly symbolic ban to the degree it’s a ban at all.

This is a story of intense importance, not because Putin’s a trustworthy source, but because we already know that our own “mainstream” sources are completely unreliable. I’m not making a case on Putin’s behalf.  That’s in no way related to my point.  Putin is merely picking at a scab barely covering a deep wound of which we are already domestically aware.  That he opportunistically pecks at our wounds does not mean we should ignore them.  What I intend to provoke here is the idea that Americans should begin to doubt everything, to avoid making the error of alleged fraternal trust in our media and governments, not because we should trust Putin, but because we too easily trust our own government and media, often at our own peril.  Look how frequently and easily they’ve blatantly lied to us in recent years.  Why would this story be any different?  I’ve been scanning a variety of foreign news outlets, particularly European, and they seem, as ever, to be singing from the same basic hymnal as our own.  Take away the foreign accents and cultural differences, and the stories could have been produced just as easily by CNN or MSNBC.  Sky News, Deutsche Welle, Al Jazeera, and many others are examples.  Sometimes, your own “brother” is lying to you, and you’d do well to see it.  At this scale, the stakes are simply too great, and we cannot permit alleged familial bonds to blind us to the monsters operating happily within our own Western and American families.  While we’re quite right to doubt most anything that issues forth from Putin’s lips, we should exercise no less caution in evaluating the pronouncements of our own government and media.  They lie to us daily.  For the average citizen, this begins to take on all the appearances of a war among rival gangs of villains, with ordinary people, as ever, caught squarely in the middle.

 

Biden Administration Pushed Putin to Invade

Sunday, February 27th, 2022

He really DID do that!

It’s a story that could have been pulled from the pages of a Tom Clancy novel, except this isn’t fiction. As I suspected, the messaging of the Biden administration over the last several months has seemed at times either to goad or provoke a hostile reaction from Russia’s President-for-Life, Vladimir Putin.  It was no secret that Putin had designs on much of Eastern Europe, and to the degree he’s been able, he has managed to infiltrate the countries in the region, setting up puppets or regimes very friendly to his purposes.  When President Volodymyr Zelenskiy was elected, Putin was very unhappy, because it appeared Zelenskiy might be an actual, genuine reformer.  Worst of all, Putin didn’t have his claws in him, as has been his common practice.  At the time, Donald Trump was president, and Putin knew he couldn’t risk an invasion.  Trump had reportedly made the matter plain for the dictator, telling him those golden domes of the Kremlin would be demolished if Putin were to invade Ukraine.  This was not a man with whom Putin could trifle or hope to control, and despite the idiotic and false narratives being pushed in the US media, he knew he was stalemated for the moment.  Instead, he plotted for better times and opportunities.  He needed Zelenskiy gone, but he wasn’t alone in that desire.

One-fifth of the way around the world, another cabal was plotting Zelenskiy’s demise, but to them, the new President of Ukraine posed a threat of a different sort.  They’d been using Ukraine as their private piggy-bank, and money-laundering center.  The sons of top politicians had been employed in fields for which they had no experience, and no expertise.  Among them was Hunter Biden, a corrupt, drug-addicted sex-fiend, who seems to have had a fetish for prostitutes while in a crack-addicted stupor.  This has ever been the best kind of set-up for the extortionists in the Russian orbit, and they could add a carrot or two to the stick they would eventually wield.  Hunter was hired by the firm Burisma, at an astounding rate of $83,333 dollars per month. Best of all, it was a no-show job for which Biden would do exactly zero actual work.  Sons of Pelosi, Romney, and the step-son of Kerry would all dip into the water of Ukraine business ventures, and it was a wonderful way for the oligarchs involved to purchase favor with these American politicians.  The Clintons had done fabulously well with the oligarchs of Ukraine, their foundation having received more than ten million dollars  during the period between 1999-2014, all from particularly well-off citizens of, and NGOs operating within that beleaguered, corrupted nation-state.

Under Zelenskiy, some of this had begun to surface, but once Trump had been cheated of another term, Zelenskiy saw the writing on the wall and realized there’d be no further action on the matter.  The American gangsters were back in control, and no good for his country would come of pursuing the matter further.  Of course, none of this eliminated the stick that Putin held, because one way to get a seat at Putin’s table is to have powerful chips one can lie down; influence with Western politicians, whether in the form of favors owed, or extortionists’ leverage, serve as one possible price of admission to his inner circle of friendly oligarchs.

Everybody knew Putin’s aims with respect to Ukraine.  Why then, as Sundance over at TheConservativeTreehouse reported Saturday, did the Biden administration shove the notion of Ukraine’s entry into NATO into Putin’s face via intel provided to the Chinese?  This would predictably enrage the former KGB spymaster, and defender of the USSR.  Putin has long been understood to resent the era that began with Perestroika begun under Mikhail Gorbachev, and he was thoroughly disgusted with Boris Yeltsin, who he threatened and forced from office.  In Putin’s view, the assembly of so many new NATO members made up of former Soviet satellites was more than an annoyance.  It was a downright threat to his vision of returning Russia to the “glory days” of the Soviet Union.  Yes, in this way, Putin is truly a dangerous madman, thoroughly committed to the rebirth of the Soviet leviathan that had dominated all of his youth.  The notion that Ukraine would be permitted to seek protection under the umbrella of NATO was a slap to his face that he would never permit.   More, the operatives in the Biden administration would know that by sharing this with the Chinese, it would get back to Putin almost instantly, because the Chinese are very keen on seeing America, particularly, distracted by events in Europe as they prepare to take Taiwan. They would know Putin’s likely reaction to such information. The outcome of a Russian invasion was effectively engineered within our own government, and implanted via Beijing.

Soon after this revelation from the Biden administration via his allies in Beijing in early December, Putin had made his decision: He would move to invade Ukraine and mask his aggression under the thin veil of a “military exercise.”  All of the rest has been pure stage-show garbage.  The diplomacy was never genuine, and indeed, neither was it genuinely helpful on the American side. Biden stood before the presidential lectern, adorned with the trappings of his office, and effectively prodded Putin to invade.  He erased any notion of strategic ambiguity, letting Putin know the coast was clear, continually telling Putin via press conferences, our strategic position and intent, while also letting Putin what we knew or didn’t.  Biden (or the people controlling him) knew that there was no way Putin would tolerate even the discussion of Ukraine’s entry into NATO, and that among the ends Putin would pursue would be regime change in Kiev.

In point of fact, Biden openly attempted regime change in Ukraine too, though he took another approach: He offered safe transport and asylum to President Zelenskiy early Saturday morning. Had Zelenskiy accepted that offer, he would be effectively deposed, while Biden would look the compassionate hero, but Biden would have what he really needed most: An effective end to any threat posed by further disclosures or investigations from Ukraine about he or his son, or any of his friends in Washington DC.

The invasion is quite real, and the threat to Ukraine’s future is undeniable, but what lies behind these events is being concealed from your eyes by Western media.  Joe Biden should be impeached, because he is factually responsible for the precipitation of these events.  It is his administration that engineered this, but it tells me something more.  In order to provoke Russia to attack its neighbor, and to effectively sign Zelenskiy’s death warrant, the people within the Biden administration are clearly desirous of hiding more than Hunter Biden’s porn-stash.  These are the kinds of actions undertaken by a mafia-boss hiding extensive, organization-threatening crimes and prosecutions.  There must be much more in Ukraine than we now know.  Surely, there is extensive evidentiary linkage to Western politicians, in DC and elsewhere.  Time will tell, but at this hour, what is certain is that Biden’s administration had every intention of seeing this invasion happen.  It was their goal all along. Now we know how they actually engineered it. Many thanks to TheConservativeTreehouse for all of the in-depth digging.

For those who doubt any of this, I’d ask you to consider the laundry list of people who’ve been on the war-path. They’re all the same people who were engaged in the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.  Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, Adam Kinzinger, Lindsey Graham, Liz Cheney, Mitt Romney, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Barack Obama, and of course Biden himself, along with various flunkies throughout the government.  Do you really wonder that this same collection of people, all deeply involved in the ridiculous leftist conspiracy theory and in SpyGate have all been deeply involved and increasingly loudly supportive of Ukraine, while simultaneously seeming to throw Zelenskiy under Putin’s bus? Some will call this mere guilt-by-association, but I would say that ignoring it is beyond naïveté. None of this is accidental, in the same way that the Biden’s convenient and timely disclosures to the Chinese were accidental.  This is the American mafia.  As Rush often said, “Don’t doubt me.”

Going to War With the President We’ve Got

Friday, February 25th, 2022

Shall we go to War with the President we’ve got?

Donald Rumsfeld once [in]famously remarked that “As you know, you go to war with the Army you have, not the Army you might want or wish to have at a later time.” This remark was accurate, even though it was widely and wildly criticized by leftists who have no understanding of national defense. The sentiment is easy enough to understand: You do not always get the luxury of preparing endlessly for war. Sometimes, the need to go to war supersedes your ability to abstain from or delay it for more ideal conditions or state of readiness.  Sadly, this is sometimes true of presidents as well. If the United States were to be attacked suddenly by nuclear strikes originating in Russia, for instance, it really wouldn’t matter who the president at the time might be.  That president would be expected to respond with equal or greater ferocity, irrespective of party or politics.  The problem we now face as a country borders on the galactically absurd.  We have in the Oval office a foolish, apparently dementia-addled old man, who is apparently not in good control of his bowel, never mind his mouth or intellectual capacity. He ought to be removed under the 25th amendment, come what may, but the people who’ve been using him as their meat-mask have no intention of seeing that happen.  We are in mortal danger, but under this President, Joe Biden, we cannot risk any unnecessary wars.  It is the height of unconscionable madness to permit it. I realize that sometimes, a country must go to war with the president in charge at the time, but this is not that situation, and I condemn any who would suggest otherwise.  No, we must not now go to war with the president we’ve got.

Ukraine is under attack by a hostile, monstrous actor.  Vladimir Putin is despicable, but he also has the advantage of owning the superior forces over the terrain in question.  It’s not a matter of caring, because any person can look in horror at the Hell Putin now imposes on the people of that stricken nation and understand the misery they now suffer.  It’s a matter of practical reality.  We are in no position to do anything unless our answer is a nuclear first strike against Russia, but that’s an intolerably bad option for all of the obvious reasons.  We have no significant bases nearby from which we could operate the number of air sorties needed to put up any sort of sustained defense of Ukrainian airspace, though it is possible we could park an aircraft carrier battle group in the Black Sea.  That’s an extraordinarily risky proposition when you intend to poke the Russian bear within easy reach of their air assets.  We are poorly positioned, and Putin knows it. He’s been watching and assessing NATO for decades.  He knows our NATO allies have barely maintained their responsibilities in the alliance.  He knows they’ve all been cheating.  He knows they are all incredibly weak, and weakened more by their oppressions of their own populations as part of their COVID responses.  He knows they’ve repressed their own dissidents, and he can legitimately throw the political dagger of “hypocrisy” at them with no trouble.

He also knows that America is now weak, with obviously weak and ineffectual leadership that is more concerned with punishing their own countrymen than in prosecuting a war in a country most of the corrupt US leaders would sooner see destroyed, in part to hide their corruption over decades. Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry and Mitt Romney along with their adult children and many others in the DC cocktail-party circuit would be only too happy if Ukraine’s current leadership came to an obscure and quiet end.  Between 1999-2014, the Clinton foundation carted over $10 million dollars from the oligarchs there.  They’ve used it as their personal piggy-bank for more than two decades, laundering money in and out of that small and easily corrupted country.  Their current president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, is apparently an actual reformer, and none of them can tolerate that, particularly Putin, who has used it as the base from which to compromise Western politicians, particularly Americans, none of whose names are Trump.

The only question in Washington DC is how to play it for maximum waggage. (As in wag-the-dog.) None of the people now in charge in DC have any intention of rescuing Zelenskiy.  The truth is that they want him gone for all the same reasons Putin does. He can’t have Zelenskiy or his reformer government burning his purchased assets in Washington. It’s better to make it all just go away, and to bury any evidence or witnesses with it.  Others had suggested that the Russian “Invasion of Ukraine” narrative had been an entirely invented story line to give Biden a moment to talk and act tough to distract from the massive failures of his administration, but as facts on the ground now demonstrate, the threat was always very real.  Maintaining an Army in the field is expensive, and the larger the force, the more expensive and difficult it becomes. When it was clear that Putin had more than one-hundred-thousand troops deployed along the borders of Ukraine, it became clear to me that this was more than idle bluffing.

It could be observed that the pronouncements from both the White House and the State Department seemed almost to goad Putin into attacking.  On the one hand, they made threats that all parties knew were idle, while on the other, they openly admitted their inability and unwillingness to do much to stop it. “You’d better not, or we’ll kick your ass, even though we’re in no position to do so, and really don’t have the resolve to do so,” they effectively blustered and admitted at once.

There’s one other issue I’d like to tackle, and it’s with those who seem to be insisting “we MUST do something.” This element doesn’t seem to like that the vast bulk of the American people seem understandably to have no interest in doing much about the situation in Ukraine.  Polls seem to suggest that something like thirty percent of Democrats and twenty percent of Republicans believe the US should have any significant role in Ukraine.  To this element in our country, I suggest they take a look around and smell the crap they’re shoveling.  One, a radio host I have always liked, pointed out for the second consecutive day that after all, ours is a volunteer military, as if that means something to the argument for going to war, and he’s right, it does: A volunteer military requires the people to follow orders just like a conscripted military, with the difference that what makes that volunteer force viable is their understanding that their chain of command will not make frivolous or futile use of them. It’s one of only a couple of times in my history of listening to Mark Levin that I very nearly turned him off. I know there are dolts who have come to believe, inexplicably, that the killer Putin is some sort of good guy in disguise, but I’m not one of those, and Mr. Levin ought to be more careful before he begins to conflate America First patriots with these.

I don’t know what’s in Mr. Levin’s head when he says a thing like that.  I was a volunteer too, when I was fortunate enough to have a great commander-in-chief in President Ronald Reagan.  Neither was he without flaws.  Eight days before I reported for Basic Training, 241 servicemembers – Marines(220), Sailors(18) and Soldiers(3) – were slaughtered in Beirut.  When I went through boot camp, the mostly Vietnam combat veteran drill instructors all believed we were inevitably going to war.  We believed it too.  They drilled us like it, and they trained us with a vigor and intensity prior classes that year probably hadn’t experienced.  They were tough as nails, maybe more than usual, because they believed we trainees would be called upon to go to Lebanon.  That call never came, but I believe to this day that every one of us who graduated that training cycle were beneficiaries, because they more scrupulously got rid of the duds, pushed us to the physical, emotional, and intellectual limits, making us better soldiers.  The point is that President Ronald Reagan did not send in more Marines, Sailors, or Soldiers.  In point of fact, he pulled them out.  When that was the result, I remember that the sentiment in the military community was not all that happy about it.  Nobody wants to see their fellow servicemembers slaughtered, particularly to no purpose, and definitely without punitive response.  At the time, it didn’t sit well, even though it was potentially our necks on the line had Reagan sent more troops instead of withdrawing them.

In the longer run, however, I came to take a more mature view of what Reagan did, or more properly, didn’t do.  He evaluated the terrain, he looked at who we faced, and what the probability would be that more troops would merely make for more concentrated targets, far from home, to be attacked by small groups or individual suicide bombers where the mission was already murky and hadn’t borne the expected fruit. He looked at our allies in the region, and how he might augment and support the mission, and finally decided there wasn’t an attainable military objective that could be reasonably achieved without unreasonable losses.  In short, President Reagan made an entirely rational choice.  He likely wanted retribution against them as much as any of us. He wrote the hundreds of letters to wives and mothers and fathers and children.  He knew the unambiguous costs. Strangely, I would later intersect with Reagan’s foreign policy again, in April 1986, when a Berlin discotheque was bombed, killing US Servicemembers.  It was a strange turn of events that led my unit to serve briefly as replacements in Berlin in September of that year. Reagan did exact a punishment on the bad guys in this case, being Ghaddafi and his ring of terrorist henchmen, within ten days sending a bombing raid to Tripoli that nearly got the “Colonel.”

My point in all of this is that it’s very easy to look at the situation in Ukraine and desire to be able to put a stop to it. The sickening truth is that when we pretended, starting with President George HW Bush, that there was some “peace dividend” to be obtained from the end of the Cold War, it was foolishness, and an instance of utter stupidity that only anti-military pukes like the Clintons could love.  They exploited it, too.  Rather than realizing that the “peace dividend” from the ending of the Cold War was peace itself, we pretended that we could reduce our defense spending.  Adjusting for inflation, to spend at our Cold War defense-spending peak in 1986, a year in which we spent an astounding $295 billion, in today’s dollars, we should be spending roughly $1.2 trillion.  Instead, in 2019, we were spending roughly $740 billion.  At the turn of the century, after two terms of Clinton, we had fallen to $320 billion when we ought to have been closer to $500 billion in inflation-adjusted dollars, and the percentage of GDP expended on our military had fallen from 6.63% in 1986 to 3.11% in 2000.  Even now, we’re only slightly better, at 3.41% of GDP, as of 2019, so that we’re at slightly more than half as much military spending as a percentage of our GDP than we had been in 1986, a time when many, myself included, believe the US Army was at or near its peak in training and morale. (See stats here.)

Europe is far worse. Trump was not only right about European nations’ contributions to NATO, but their underlying defense expenditures are cratering. Since Trump left, they’ve fallen off a cliff, with reports that the German Army couldn’t deploy sufficient forces to repel successfully much of anything.  In short, Europe has left themselves virtually defenseless, with the brief exception of the period of Trump’s presidency, with only new NATO member Poland substantially upholding the promise of expending at least two percent of their national GDP on defense.  The United States has been bearing the burdens of defending Europe for most of a century now, yet we cannot get them to pay to defend themselves, and there is no will under the current administration in Washington DC to hold NATO’s feet to the fire. In 2020, Germany barely attained 1.57% of its GDP in defense spending, and that was after extensive prodding from President Trump. When he took office, the Germans were spending roughly 1.1% on defense.  In short, don’t look to Berlin for help.

This is the realistic assessment of the terrain in Europe: NATO has fallen into severe disrepair, from the end of the Cold War, until Trump came along to prod them beginning in 2017, but has since fallen back into the same rut, with the blame naturally being placed on CoVid19. At this point, the United States should be telling NATO: “That’s it. We’re cutting you off. We’re bringing home our troops unless you get to your spending goals AND make up for all the years of shortfalls within the decade.”

Of course, we’re no more likely to get that from this administration that we are to have a competent president, never mind commander-in-chief. More, this administration is incapable of waging an effective war of any kind, anywhere, at any time. They’ve diverted our military into concerns with all things “woke,” and if you think this is Ronald Reagan’s military of 1986, technology notwithstanding, you need your head examined.  Quickly.  Yes, of course we still have some good war-fighters in our military, but they’re now a pathetic minority within the ranks, and in the officer corps, they’re getting pretty thin as the service academies have been infiltrated by more and more social justice schlock, as modern “education” theories take precedence over what had traditionally worked.  I would like you to watch the first six and one-fourth minutes of this episode of Bannon’s War Room. In those first few minutes, he presents what he calls his “cold open,” and in it are various clips, including three recruiting ads, one for NATO, one for the Russian Army, and one for the US Army.  If you don’t see the problem, again, you need your head examined:


Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve been reporting to you the state of our nation, and more generally, or our globe in one way or another for more than a decade at this web address. While my posts have been more infrequent in recent years, it’s not for a lack of concern.  People are foolishly insisting now that “we must do something,” but look at the state of our country.  I ask them: What would you have us do?  We have feckless leaders, corrupt and intransigent to the suffering and travails of the American people.  We have a military that, but for a brief reprieve under Trump, has been diminished and demolished, it’s morale wrecked along with its ethos.  We have a corrupted Justice Department that behaves as the hitmen for the government mafia.  We have an FBI that actively plots to entrap citizens, in shenanigans of that agency’s complete contrivance and invention.  We have a Department of State that openly plots against elected presidents it does not like, and we have an intelligence community that actively seeks to surveil and undermine a president it did not and would not obey.  We have an opposition party that barely musters any sort of fight against any of this, in large measure because they’re not really opposed.  We have public health officials who collude with big pharma to poison the American people and hide the data. We have whole segments of the population committed to destroying the country from within, including local officials, many bought-off by globalist pigs like Soros and Schwab.  You actually expect, in this condition, and in this state of being, that the remarkably few American people who realize what is going on, to volunteer their children into a war on behalf of this? Of this???

Do not tell me that we must go to war with the President we’ve got. I’m heartbroken at what I’ve seen thus far from Ukraine, like any other compassionate, thoughtful human must be.  I know that Putin’s mission is to exterminate Zelenskiy and his entire cabinet. His intention is to expunge them from the face of the globe.  Worse, the scumbags running Washington DC have every reason to help him do so.  There’s too much evidence of their corruption over in that tiny country.  There’s too much evidence of how they were controlled from the Kremlin. They don’t want to save Zelenskiy or Ukraine.  They want to bury Zelenskiy and his cabinet, they’re willing to burn Ukraine to the ground to do it, and they’re helping Putin carry it out.  Meanwhile, the American economy is spiraling into a stagflationary period that will make the Carter years look like a boom.  (It was once a joke that Jimmy Carter was thankful to Obama, and then Biden(but I repeat myself) for knocking him from the top of the “worst president’s ever” list, but nobody’s really laughing any longer. We’re in freefall, and every sensible person knows it.)

In the midst of all of this, those of you who wish to “do something” need to get a grip on your emotions, and understand what we’re really up against now.  We’re fighting for the survival of this country, right here, right now.  That great wealth or influence might offer insulation to some is no excuse for the indifference in the sentiment contained in the idea that Americans are somehow defective if they don’t wish to rush off to war against Vladimir Putin in Ukraine.  We know it’s another nasty set-up, just like all the ones deployed against us here at home.  We know the score.  We know, because every damned “conspiracy theory” (or most of them) of the last two decades have been proven mostly true.  We know Zelenskiy is the good guy.  We know.  Meanwhile, we listen to buffoons like Lindsey Graham, whose military experience consisted of walking papers around a Judge Advocate General’s office, pontificate about the privations we will suffer due to this crisis.  It’s not enough as it is, you see; Goober would have us suffer more.

Now I have to endure a berating monologue from a radio host I have long supported because I’m in no hurry to see my younger, ill-prepared brethren in uniform sent off to do something somewhere? For what purpose? To what end? For the sake of the need to “do something?” No sir.  I will not support going to war with this class of criminals who run our country. I will not support the spilling of so much as one drop of their blood on behalf of these cretins.  They’ve spent decades demolishing the country, and it’s not just the Democrats, though they’re today the mob bosses in charge.  When we had a president who was not part of their mob, they tried, like the gangsters they are, to take him out in any way that they could.  They used their vast criminal enterprise, posing as lawful suits at the bar of corrupt courts, undermining the integrity of our election, all because Trump had to go.

Years ago, I counseled young people to serve a term of enlistment in the military if their life plans were not firm after finishing high school. I told them it was the best thing they could do for themselves, while also serving their country.  It was true in my time, but it hasn’t been for most of a half-generation.  Even in Trump’s time, the military was already thoroughly undermined from the top, ever since Obama purged the Generals now more than a decade ago.

I truly do feel terribly for the Ukrainian people.  I know that like most ordinary people everywhere, they simply want to be left to live their lives, mostly in peace.  I know their current president is a reformer, and if it were possible, I would try to rescue he and his countrymen from the Russians.  The problem is that it is not currently possible.  More, the people running this country don’t actually want it saved.  I am as powerless to change that today, in the here and now, as any other American.  Shall we overthrow this government so that we can retroactively spend the defense dollars we should have spent, and undo all the stupidity and malfeasances of the last three decades? How will that help Zelenskiy?  More, we didn’t raise a credible effort to overthrow this government when it conspired against the President we elected. We didn’t raise a credible effort to overthrow this government when it obviously conspired with various state and local officials and NGOs to steal our presidential election and elections for lower offices.  It’s not merely Joe and Kamala who are illegitimate. Chuck Schumer is illegitimate in his leadership position, because neither Mark Kelly nor Rafael Warnock, among others, actually won their races.  Nancy Pelosi is illegitimate, because there were at least a half-dozen closely contested races that were likely impacted by the same cheating.  Do you really believe John James lost his Senate race in Michigan?  I don’t.

No, Mr. Levin, don’t tell me we should spill blood or treasure, no matter how strongly we might feel about it, for the sake of Ukraine or President Zelenskiy.  Until we spill all the blood and treasure needed to rescue our own fallen nation, don’t dare speak of it to me. You haven’t earned the right.  If you wish to characterize me as America First, as though it were a slur of some kind, so be it. I’ll stand by it. Don’t worry, I won’t burn any of the autographed books that fill half a shelf, in part not only because I hate book-burners and wanton, pointless destruction, but also because, with the way things are rapidly heading, I may need them soon for that purpose to cook my supper. Shall we go to war with the president we’ve got?  Respectfully, that depends on the contextual meaning of “with,” sir.  With him in Ukraine?

Hell no.

 

Editor’s Note: I’ve been a big fan of Mark Levin for a long time, and in the past, I’ve contributed to the Landmark Legal Foundation, of which he served as President for several years.  I don’t mean here to personally attack Mr. Levin, but I fail to understand his point of view on this particular issue. I always feel badly when I find myself at severe disagreement with the Great One, but on this point, I will not demur.  Our country cannot now defend itself, and its leaders prevent its agents and officers from defending even our Southern border.  They file suits at law against states, like my own, who attempt to enforce the laws of the United States, and even when ordered by courts to do so, effectively play a stalling game, and a game of “you can’t make me” with federal judges who dare to rule against them, up to and including the Supreme Court. So long as we have a lawless government, I support only wars of immediate existential circumstances for the United States. I swore an oath to the Constitution of the United States, and it does not expire, no matter who now has claimed the authority to ignore it.

President Trump Addresses the Nation

President Trump speaks to America

In a prepared video that was provided to Sean Hannity for airing on his FoxNews show Thursday evening, President Trump provided a brief statement to the nation about the events in Afghanistan today, particularly, and on the sorry conduct of Joe Biden and his entire feckless administration. The Afghanistan debacle is sickening.  Here is President Trump’s statement:

We’ve Failed Our War-Fighters

Thursday, August 26th, 2021

12 Marines, 1 Sailor killed, many wounded, many civilians killed

The situation on the ground in Afghanistan today is beyond reprehensible.  The genesis of this situation is remarkable inasmuch as it’s now clear that it was a planned operation carried into operation by an administration that should never have been in power.  Our fake Commander-in-Chief is a feckless, worthless drone.  He doesn’t know anything.  I’m convinced that he’s not even entirely aware of his own personal surroundings, or much of anything else.  He’s a sock-puppet for people with malevolent motives, and the only thing that still connects with him is his baseline connections to all of his corruption in the past.  Joe Biden isn’t a president any more than Hirohito was the Emperor of Japan.  He too was a puppet for malevolent actors.  The humiliation he was forced to endure was fitting, given his role as a puppet, but Joe Biden’s humiliation is really ours to endure.  Joe’s too far around the bend to be humiliated by much of anything now.  This morning, unknown persons carried out an attack on US forces at/near the gate to the Kabul Airport, killing at least a dozen US Marines, one US sailor, injured dozens more, and killing and maiming scores of civilians.  Ladies and gentlemen, this is on us.  Joe Biden shouldn’t be anywhere near the White House. If he was legitimately elected, we truly failed, and even if it was simply stolen, as I and millions of others are now convinced, we are not off the hook.  We should have fought harder for audits sooner, and we should have insisted by all means that there be a full accounting of our elections.  No, there’s no moral escape clause for us simply because the criminals stole the election.  We had a duty to fight, and fight like Hell, but today, our war-fighters paid the price for all of our surrenders. We failed them, and their blood is on our hands.

Over the last three decades, the quality of the leadership at the highest levels of the uniformed services has been in steep decline.  Worried about social experimentation, and joining the DC/Pentagon-based cocktail circuit has been the focus of the generals and the admiralty.  Spending our treasure at fantastic rates, while spending the blood of our young men and women placed into their charge, these leaders have failed us repeatedly.  We’ve let the service academies that produce the majority of our senior officers become cesspools of social engineering and leftist political indoctrination, and we wonder why they churn out politically correct losers to lead our best, brightest, and bravest.  Our military has been in decline since the end of the Cold War, in part for lack of a clearly-defined mission through most of this era, but mainly because we, who knew better, or ought to have known better, let our politicians turn it into another battleground of political dispute. We’ve let presidents from alternating parties do horrendous damage to it, just as they’ve done to other institutions of government, and we’ve done damnably little about it. Meanwhile, our war-fighters, the hardened men who go to the world’s ugliest locales, have been permitted to suffer under this ping-pong match between those bent on political supremacy, and those too timid to fight for it.

When this so-called “president” was inaugurated in January, he (and those handling him) already had a raft of executive actions ready to go, already vetted by the Department of Justice beforehand, to begin in earnest undoing President Trump’s term expeditiously.  Now he claims to have been hamstrung by Trump’s negotiations with the Taliban, but that a farcical misdirection.  Trump’s canceling of the Iran Deal didn’t stop Biden from immediately re-launching it. Trump’s negotiations with the Taliban didn’t stop Biden from initiating violations of that agreement, or failing to enforce blow-back when the Taliban violated them.  No, Joe Biden’s a liar, and those propping-up this counterfeit president do all they can to buttress his lies, or even author them in many cases.

This brings us back around to the central issue.  Neither Joe Biden nor Kamala Harris should ever have seen the inside of the Oval Office, except on the basis of an invitation from a legitimate president, and it was our job to prevent it. When the Democrats began, as early as 2019, setting the stage for the plandemic they created and promulgated, together with their Chi-Comm pals, they did so by attacking the laws of our various states.  In places like Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin, they took advantage of mid-terms wins in the executive offices and judiciaries of those states to set the table.  In places like Arizona and Georgia, we let serious RINOs take over the executive branches, with complete frauds like Katie Hobbs and Brad Raffensberger as the secretaries of state, respectively, both being roughly as Republican as Mitt Romney’s dog. Those two, and others like them, set about to help rig the election while we left it all in Trump’s hands.  We didn’t see what was coming, but 2018 should have been the clue.  When 2020 began with a pandemic, I knew that the old rule was in play: If it happens in an election year, it’s about the election.  Don’t think for one moment that the whole Coronavirus plot wasn’t hatched or at least seized-upon by Democrats, and pushed to the bitter end by them.  These variants we’re now seeing, you should simply call the “Midterms Variants” for ease of understanding. We blissfully slumbered, most of us, as they set everything up for the big steal.  Then they executed it.

Now, seven months into the Biden “presidency,” we see a complete catastrophe, and while his name is on the title, we helped to author it, by failing to stand up in 2018, 2019, and in 2020.  Yes, readers here are some of those who have fought hardest, but the truth is that none of us have fought hard enough.  We’ve let too many among our friends and family fall prey to the media’s false narratives, and we’ve not pushed hard enough for audits and all the rest. This has allowed Joe Biden to do the bidding of those driving him, in a fit of punishment against us, destroying our country one piece at a time, as quickly as possible, from one end to the other.  They’re doing their level best to make sure we can never retake control of any of it.  That’s why they’ve not gone fully after guns just yet.  They’re still securing their coup.  Once it’s secured, our guns will be taken from us. Bank on it.

What happened in Kabul Afghanistan today was the inevitable result of a plan designed to wreck our country.  As they’re coercing our servicemembers to take vaccines that present real dangers, particularly to young males, but all young people generally, our counterfeit president ordered a hasty withdrawal from Kabul that could only result in tragedy.  There was no other way this could go, given the conditions Biden, his henchmen, and handlers set in place.  No rational person who wanted to withdraw from a war zone would do it as it was done. None. Nobody. It wouldn’t be possible to do this accidentally.  The Taliban were supposed to provide perimeter security!  They left computers with all of our citizens names, whereabouts, and so on at the embassy on computers, but just in case the Taliban couldn’t figure out how to access that information, we provided the lists to them directly. That’s right, for all intents and purposes, the Biden administration provided the Taliban a kill list.  We had intelligence about the terror threat being aimed at the airport too, so that when today, the suicide bombers went about plying their trade, going off to meet their maker in Hell, our US Marines were there, doing what they have always done: Protecting America’s interests, defending the places they’re told to defend, and helping the people their training and temperament has told them to help.  The bomb that killed our Marines, and a Sailor who was a medic, ripped through more than their bodies.  Our nation was torn still further, the rending of our country growing more lethal by the moment.

We had a responsibility as citizens who love their country and their countrymen to have stopped this.  It should never have happened.  These villains should never have been permitted to command our troops.  Never.  We cannot now undo this, but we must prevent any more if and while we can.  This must be stopped.  We must demand this be stopped.  We must demand our elections be audited now.  We must demand Joe Biden be impeached and removed now, and the Cackle-Queen too.  When Nancy Pelosi is sworn in, we must push for her impeachment and removal too.  We mustn’t stop.  When we fail, our Marines, Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen, and other war-fighters pay in blood.  When we fail to take our citizenship and our politics seriously, they pay with their lives.  When we fail to see that part of the bargain they strike with us is that while they defend the homeland, we should be defending them from corrupt and malevolent political agendas, we permit those political actors to use them as pawns and subject them to horrors they ought not have known.  There isn’t much time before this tragedy spreads throughout our forces, even if in other places, and by other means.  We must protect them, and that protection begins and ends with removing the insidious forces now directing our government as we look on mostly in silence.  The time for silence is over.  The time for loud voices is now, and if they will not hear us, we must become like Jesus confronting the money-changers in the Temple.  The cost of silence has become far too great already.  It’s only going to get worse.

 

 

The Truth About Afghanistan

Wednesday, August 18th, 2021

Biden Deserves Blame…

There are those screeching now that “we shouldn’t have been there,” and there are those demanding we go back in with guns blazing. I must admit that while I am disgusted with the way we’ve withdrawn, I believe we needed to have withdrawn years ago. Remembering how we wound up in that Hell-hole, it’s worth noting that we went to Afghanistan to impose a reckoning on those who attacked us on 9/11, and also those who sheltered and supported the terrorists.  I don’t think we should have been there beyond the end of the Bush presidency, but then again, I don’t think it should have taken us more than a decade to find Osama bin Laden.  The problem with the entire expedition is that not long after arriving there, it seems we lost focus on our purpose there.  We should have been there for a singular purpose: To locate and destroy the guilty; to abolish their ability to make war upon any nation; to enact justice in a dangerous, sometime monstrous world.  Instead, we deluded ourselves into the belief that we could teach the peoples of Afghanistan “democracy,” for all the good that might do them, when they had not even the basic-most understanding of the concept of rights.  The truth about Afghanistan is a nasty story, and one from which most Americans will too quickly and easily avert their eyes.  We went astray in largest measure because we, the people, permitted this to happen by ceding oversight of our government to our alleged betters in Washington DC. This must be the most important lesson of our age, and it’s one that too many people too easily dismiss.  Yes, Biden’s actions were abominable, and certainly, he and all who helped him plan this should be removed from their posts, but we must measure our roles in it too.  Our apathy has played its own terrible role.

It’s easy to blame politicians. Often, they earn the blame by their foolish ideas and frequently reckless implementations of them. Men like Joe Biden, or the monsters directing him, have no business making decisions about the conduct of this nation’s military affairs. Momentarily ignoring Biden’s peculiar personal shortcomings, such as his clearly advancing dementia, the truth is that Biden’s never done a single thing the right way, never mind doing the right thing from the outset.  He’s always chosen incorrectly, from his time as a junior Senator from Delaware, foisting his notions of segregation on the country, to his decisions later as the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee, overseeing the show-trial and “high-tech lynching” of Clarence Thomas. Later still, as Vice President, he used his office to pile-up cash from all sorts of nefarious sources, and by illegitimate means. He should never have been the nominee for President, nor any other office of trust under our constitution. He shouldn’t have been permitted to put a lid on his campaign for months on end in the midst of a presidential campaign.  He should never have been permitted to steal an election, or having stolen it, to be permitted to enter the office. In this sense, it is our fault too, because while most of the readers of this site will have voted against the brain-addled charlatan, we were also the people who let the fraudulent secretaries of state be seated in places like Georgia and Arizona without serious inspection of their qualifications or their intentions. In too many ways, we’ve let ourselves be led, rather than choosing the course of our nation.

Donald Trump also wanted to get out of Afghanistan, but clearly, his approach was quite different, the Biden administration’s claims to the contrary notwithstanding. He made clear to the Taliban quite some time ago that if they violated their agreements, and that if they harmed any American, he would descend on them like Hell itself had landed.  The Taliban, after one early attempt to cross him, were taught a difficult lesson. After the election was stolen, and Trump was no longer in office, Joe Biden immediately began the effort to change everything Trump had done. Among these things, the Taliban had agreed to certain timelines with Trump, and Biden ignored it all.  He (or those handling him) was determined to wreck the place.  Nothing he said in his scripted, unquestioned statement to the press on Monday was true.  None of it. He postured about the “buck” stopping with him, but in his statement, he criticized his predecessor as though Donald Trump had somehow been able, from his home in Mar-a-lago to impose his own will on the conduct of the situation in Afghanistan.  Preposterous?  Of course, but nobody in the mainstream media will seriously challenge his assertions.  On Wednesday, he has an “exclusive interview” with George Stephanopoulos on ABC, but no serious person believes he’ll be pressed for any answers on anything important, including particularly his lies.

Biden told us the Afghanis were unwilling to fight. Let’s be clear: The Afghani army fought like Hell these last several years. They lost thousands upon thousands of men fighting against the Taliban.  Biden pulled the rug from beneath them, however, removing all air support, all intelligence, and even the contractors who helped them maintain their equipment, vehicles, and aircraft. It’s one thing to say that an Army won’t fight, but it’s another to remove instantly from them all the infrastructure on which they depended for the fight you expect them to carry out. There was no serious provision for how to get our own people out, never mind the Afghanis who had worked with us, and even now, the Taliban has ringed the Kabul airport to prevent any further Afghanis from making it onto the airport.  They intend to clean up thoroughly once the Americans and the world’s media have finally departed, and by clean-up, I mean a slaughter.

I know most people wanted us to end our two-decades-long engagement in Afghanistan. I can’t help but agree, but I don’t know any of the people who feel this way who think this was carried out in anything like a sensible, honorable fashion.  I know of veterans who, even at this moment, are trying to figure out how they can help the people of Afghanistan, and some ten to forty thousands of Americans still stuck behind enemy lines.  Biden’s people briefed the press and said that no, indeed, Americans weren’t being prioritized for evacuation, and they said it seemingly with glee.  Then today, they reversed themselves on the “prioritization” question, seemingly, at least momentarily, although nobody really knows what they’re doing.  They answered succinctly that no plan had been made on how to deprive materials and weapons left behind to the Taliban, and indeed they are aware that any number of such things, up to and including aircraft, have been left to the loving care of the seventh-century monsters now swarming Kabul.

As easy as it may be to see that Biden has snatched defeat out of the jaws of a restless, difficult neutralization of the conflict, it’s also clear that our expectations were forged during a presidency in which the chief executive routinely got things right. Trump was a species of big cat, while Biden is a much more common brand of goat. Trump was the apex predator to Washington DC’s herds of flighty prey animals.  To expect Biden to even roughly approximate the sorts of results Donald Trump brought is frankly absurd.  Biden does well to walk across the White House lawn without losing his way.

This takes us back to the central issue, and it’s the thing we must confront.  The media is entirely corrupt.  There are so few of them I hold in any regard that it isn’t worth the trouble of listing the bad ones.  You already know the scarce exceptions. The entirety of Washington DC is broken.  There is no department or agency of government, no Pentagon-bound member of the military, and no member of the federal law enforcement or intelligence services to which I afford anything approximating trust.  They’re all either malevolent or incompetent, and frequently both.  Sources of varying veracity report the White House is in absolute disarray.  Nobody wants to get in front of the press, and nobody wants to attach themselves to the catastrophic decisions and inactions of [Fake]President Biden. Most of them view the ongoing cluster as a public relations nightmare, but virtually none of them are concerned with the real blowback that will come from this planned, man-caused disaster. None of their concerns are for the country, or the wider world, but only their narrow places and even narrower reputations within it. With all of this in mind, it comes down to the most important parts in this entire play. Us. You, and I, and our throngs of countrymen. It is we who will be compelled to clean this up, or watch it implode until our lives are reduced to ashes, and the lives of our children and grandchildren with us.

Today, I contacted seven state representatives, and three senators. I again reached out to Governor Abbott, demanding a forensic audit of the 2020 election in Texas. Why? Simply put, the information related by Seth Keshel in Mike Lindell’s CyberSymposium cannot be ignored. Trump shouldn’t have won Texas by six percent, but by sixteen. This is true in every state he won, and every state he lost. There may be as many as ten states that were flipped, but the best guesses say eight.  All we are watching Joe Biden carry into execution is only possible because he’s thus far gotten away with the theft.  With all that’s happening, and with the rate at which our economy is running headlong into stagflation or worse, hyperinflation, we ought to pushing now to capture the attention of our fellow Americans, to enlist their help in focusing on the election.  Every state needs an audit.  It’s not going to happen if we don’t insist on it, and drag these state legislatures, kicking and screaming, to do their jobs.

This country is descending into chaos. It’s going to get much worse.  We cannot afford for this farce to go any further. Joe Biden must go. His whole morally bankrupt administration must be sent packing. The audits need to uncover also which down-ballot elections, such as Senators and Representatives, were also stolen. The only way this can happen is with us pushing it. Nothing else matters. There is no issue that can be resolved so long as 2020 remains unaddressed. The truth about Afghanistan is that it remains only one more symptom of the virulent infection we’re suffering as a people, not from COVID, but from a more sinister contagion: Apathy.

 

Embrace the Suck

Monday, August 16th, 2021

Embrace the Suck

It’s obvious. People aren’t falling for it outside the DC Swamp. They realize that the most powerful nation on Earth cannot fail this badly without careful planning and coordination. Joe Biden may be non compos mentis, but his handlers are not this stupid.  They knew this would happen, and as the video I posted here makes clear, Biden was asked all of the relevant questions a month in advance in order to give him the cloak of incompetence.  I suggested that the purpose of this planned catastrophe could well be something else.  Perhaps it is to cover up for some other expected event this week, like the results of the Arizona Audit, or perhaps Durham is going to announce indictments.  More likely, I’ve postulated, is that the Chinese Communist Party intends to make a move on Taiwan.  This morning, in the clear light of day, a possible answer emerges. In the Chinese Global Times, we see this headline(H/T Jack Posobiec):

Failure of America in Afghanistan serves as warning to Taiwan secessionists

That’s pretty clear, and so we can expect that China will now make a full-court press on Taiwan, and they will attempt to take over that island nation without firing a shot.  They will point to the weakness of Biden’s administration.  Biden’s administration will avoid involvement and claim that the events in Afghanistan take priority.  Do you understand what’s being done? Biden has spiked Afghanistan in order to suit Beijing’s timetable.  Why?  Remember Hunter Biden?  Remember the compromising material the CCP has on the Bidens? Remember the money? Joe Biden’s administration has sold out the people of Taiwan but if you think that doesn’t effect us, you’re missing the plot.

Taiwan is “Silicon Valley West.” Many of the consumer electronics, and electronic components like processors and chips come from Taiwan. As Steve Bannon this morning asserted on WarRoom Monday morning, the catastrophe will be felt in America in ways you can scarcely imagine.  If you think you’ve seen price inflation in consumer goods already, prepare for the worst to be ahead of us. Bannon said it correctly: “Embrace the suck!”

Your lives are being sacrificed to their cabal. Your whole life is at risk, both in terms of the life you live, and how you live it, and in terms of your actual, material existence.  None of this was “accidental.” The only “intelligence failure” was to purposefully ignore the in-hand intelligence from this Spring.  I think we can understand the motive for this catastrophe, and those waiting for a “false flag” elsewhere have missed the false flag in front of their eyes.  The Afghanistan “failure” is the false flag.  This is the intentional catastrophe.  Will they use it to conceal other things that happen this week? Certainly.  The most important element is giving all of this over to the Chinese Communist Party.  Now we know: Biden is a compromised President, much as we long suspected.

 

Vietnam 2.0: The Afghanistan Catastrophe The Left Wanted

Saturday, August 14th, 2021

They Love When America Loses

It should be obvious to all readers who have managed to find this site that the United States is under a concerted attack. This attack has many facets, some of them more obvious, and some more difficult to discern.  There is a reason the media is recalling the abandonment of Saigon, helicopters lifting off from the embassy there, as the image they paint, because in factual terms, it is rapidly becoming the situation on the ground in Kabul, Afghanistan.  Donald Trump had a plan to withdraw from Afghanistan in an orderly, peaceable fashion, and while there were some bumps along the road, it had been headed in the right direction.  Then, the left stole the election.  I’m not mincing words about this, and I don’t give a damn who doesn’t like it.  It’s plain as the nose on your face if only you care to see it.  Since the inauguration, the Biden Administration, a.k.a., Barack Obama’s shadow government behind the puppet, has been working around the clock to undo every good thing Trump had done for America, while wrecking anything and diminishing everything left. Biden is a puppet. He’s a Fake President. He’s the patsy for Obama’s revenge. Make no mistake. This is all about revenge against America and Americans. In virtually every decision and action of the Biden administration, it would be nearly impossible to choose a worse course of action than those now being undertaken. Short of launching a nuclear attack on its own people, the US federal government is doing everything within its means and power(and a good deal many outside its limited authority) to wreck the United States. What was the biggest national shame of the last 100 years? The sight of helicopters, desperate people begging to be brought aboard, as the US evacuated from Vietnam.  They want this again.  They love it when America loses. It’s about diminishing America, for the sake of its enemies, and it’s being carried out with an almost gleeful malice aforethought.

There are few things more vile in all of human experience than a government attacking its own citizens. When that attack is directed, engaged, and facilitated by a radical minority that has already succeeded in stealing the legitimate government, whether by force or fraud, what you have is a coup d’etat. Too many foolish people, however, are suckered into the belief that what we’re witnessing is merely a matter of incompetence.  There can scarcely be so much incompetence on Earth as would be required to do by accident all the things the Biden administration has already done by careful design and implementation.

Think of it. Think of all the ways in which the media has shielded Biden over the last year and ask yourself: Why would they now permit you to see in Afghanistan the full scale of the consequence of Biden’s “leadership?” Why now?  It’s simple: This is what they wanted. They don’t care if you see it, and they don’t much care if you know it. They want America diminished as you have known it.  They liked when America was shamed in its retreat from Saigon, just as they gleefully rush to report the withdrawal from Afghanistan’s similarity to the end of American engagement in Vietnam. For Obama and his henchmen, they get to celebrate American defeat in the shadows while their puppet suffers what little heat their lapdog media might unintentionally throw Biden’s way. For them, it’s a win-win.

Just as they celebrate every penny’s increase in the cost of fuel, they are only too happy to see America left destitute by inflating its currency. In just the same way that they are thrilled to wreck American education with Critical Race Theory and as bolstered as they are by coercing service-members to take experimental drugs posing as vaccines, they are ecstatic that America will now take a huge, public black eye on the world stage.  The enemies in China and elsewhere, with whom they conspire, now see their moment of opportunity nearly in reach. China looks at Taiwan now with ever more hungry eyes, and the wreckage their takeover in that nation will have upon America and Americans will make our situation still more desperate.

These people thrive on the diminution of America. Joe Biden is headed for a two week vacation, but it scarcely matters because the Obama crew is still running the show. Biden could be wheeled into cold storage, and the folks in the White House would scarcely notice, but for Kamala, who is Obama’s Biden-minder when she’s not avoiding the press. These people are our enemies. Don’t kid yourself with notions of incompetence, and don’t pretend it will all be fine in the end.  It won’t.  These people are deconstructing America at a frightening pace, and they’re doing it because they hate America and Americans. Their flock of useful idiots are brain-dead drones who will do anything for their masters. Eventually, they’ll discover the truth of the matter, but only long after it becomes too late. There’s no chance we can rely on people associated with or even vaguely supportive of these monsters with righting the ship of state. We’re in real trouble. They love it when America loses. When they reduce America to a slavepit no better than Venezuala or North Korea, they’ll have succeeded, but not a moment sooner. Waiting for Republicans to come to the rescue won’t work. Waiting for Trump to save you isn’t going to help you now. You have to take back control of your country, one county and one precinct at a time, and you need to get in the faces of Republicans who are too weak to act on their own, like Senate President Jake Corman in the Pennsylvania Senate. He’s still sitting on the subpoenas Senator Mastriano asked for two weeks ago.  It’s the people like Corman you must pry from their perches. You must make so much noise that you’re driving them before you. They’ll pretend to be leading a parade, but you’ll be driving them. It’s our only hope. America will not survive four years of this, and if left in power, we’ll never be rid of them again. It’s their Vietnam 2.0, and they like it. The difference is, while Americans might make it out of Kabul with their skins, the left is building the horrors of post-evacuation Vietnam right here, in America.  They love it.

In Time of Peace, Prepare for War

Thursday, July 29th, 2021

It’s only just begun

Recently, I was reflecting on my military service. In the 1980s, I served in the Army National Guard and in the US Army. On active duty, I served most of my time in Europe, specifically Germany. I was assigned to an Artillery unit, and in 1988, the unit was re-designated as part of a broader reorganization the Army was carrying out. This meant our unit’s name changed, and while our brigade remained the same, the change of the battalion’s designation necessitated a change to our Distinctive Unit Insignia(often called a Unit Crest) and our motto.  A more decorated unit was reactivated, and more historically significant unit colors were raised.  Previously, as an artillery unit goes, our motto had been pretty generic and not entirely inspirational: “We Support the Line.” That’s true of any artillery unit, and it’s not exactly the most motivational motto ever repeated. The new designation came with a new motto, and since this was the era of Ronald Reagan, with his increased tempo of training and readiness generally, I found the new motto much more suitable not only to our unit’s character, but also to the times in which we then lived: “In Time of Peace, Prepare for War.” That motto spoke to a philosophy, and that philosophy endures in my thinking, and has dominated much of my decision-making ever since.  In an era when the unthinkable had to be contemplated as a very real possibility, we went about the task of preparing for it as though it was an imminent eventuality, rather than some vaguely possible worst-case scenario. It’s about this mindset and all that goes along with it that I now wish you to consider. We can pray for peace. We should work for it, and we must conduct ourselves in peace, but we must now prepare as though the war we all hope never to fight is imminent and perhaps unavoidable.

Our nation is breaking down. The bonds of fraternity among the American people are being intentionally shattered.  The Biden administration is neither defending the nation against its enemies, nor providing any workable strategy for safeguarding the country.  Instead, the Biden administration is actively attacking the concepts of separation of powers, election integrity, free markets, national security and sovereignty, the administration of justice, and transparency in government.  They claim to act in the name of science, yet when the science confounds their agenda, they collude with their big-tech friends to abscond with scientific information, and to impound it such that it is never seen by Americans. Instead, what they practice is Scientism. They’ve wrecked our recently attained national energy independence, by direct regulatory acts of sabotage, and by failing to act to defend the national infrastructure from attack by foreign actors.  In every way you can conceive, the Biden administration is acting against the interests of the sovereignty and prosperity of the American republic.  They are actively perverting the justice system.  In Portland, actual rioters guilty of all but the most egregious acts are being turned loose without bail, while in the District of Columbia, people have been in jail for months for misdemeanor charges of “trespassing” for merely being at the Capitol on January 6th. As previously reported, we now know the US Government, through its National Institute of Health, actually funded so-called “Gain of Function” experimentation (read: weaponization) of Coronaviruses.  Dr. Anthony Fauci again vehemently denied the charge under questioning by Rand Paul, but it’s clear from just a few minutes of simple research that Fauci is a liar, and he’s been exposed for the monster he is.  The media continues to cover for him.

What all of this really means is that we’re under attack. It’s not an open attack by a single enemy or an axis of traditional foreign state actors. Instead, this is an attack by all the minions of the global Marxist front.  We’re not facing a single enemy operating in the open on which we can focus our efforts.  This enemy is in our country, as well as outside, and its members are among us, some more openly malevolent, while others take a slightly more covert, flanking approach, striking us from the rear, or from within our own ranks.  It is only a matter of time before all of this barely-suppressed hostility boils over into open fighting.  What will trigger that is unknown, but it must be repeated lest the timid among us shrink from the cause confronting us all: This is a war, and while we must strive to keep it within the bounds of peaceable conduct, it must also be recognized that it may well turn into a kinetic fight.  We gain nothing by turning this into an actual war, inasmuch as we do not control the implements of government, and we would not be operating under color of law.  This is why the enemy had to seize power, whatever it took, no matter how much cheating and fraud was necessary.  To legitimize their intended actions, they needed to be able to assert some form of legitimate authority.  Stealing the election, no matter how obvious, was the key to this claim.

This is why they are fighting like Hell to forestall, obstruct, and negate any audits of the vote. When all your claims to authority rest on the legitimacy of an election, anything that throws doubt on that legitimacy is a potentially lethal threat to your power. This is why Rudy Giuliani had to be taken out of play.  This is why I now believe January 6th went the way it did.  This is why Mike Pence, a man who I never trusted, became involved in the way he did on January 6th: When his letter went out, I immediately knew something ugly was about to occur.  Yes, the “insurrection” was another Washington DC setup, rigged in much the same way as the riot by alleged workers at the Rearden Steel mills in Atlas Shrugged. Donald Trump was refusing to play his appointed role in this show, so that to defame and discredit both he and his supporters was the most direct route to securing their coup.

Even now, Cyrus Vance Jr. is still cooking up a case in New York,  Don’t be surprised when on some morning in the near future, you awake to pictures and footage of Trump being taken into custody. The one sure way to put an end to all these audits is to jail the man who would rightfully be legitimized by them.  Don’t be surprised when none in the Republican Party come to his aid. They’re doing all they can to steer clear of all of this.  They won’t raise their voices against it in part because they don’t wish to be lumped-in for persecution alongside Trump, and more importantly, because they hope to fill the vacuum left when Democrats cart Trump away under color of law.

I raise all of these things under the umbrella of preparation because I still believe most of my fellow Americans have no idea what’s coming, or if they suspect as much, how real and how thorough this war against you has become. Do you really think it was Russian hackers who brought down the Colonial pipeline? Or was it a test to see how quickly and thoroughly travel within a day’s drive of Washington DC could be shut down? One of the things January 6th taught the UniParty thugs is that Trump can deliver a huge crowd to their doorstep on relatively short notice.  Estimates vary, of course, but some estimates suggest that more than one-million people descended on DC for that event, not including the BLM and Antifa provocateurs.  The vast majority of those people hailed from within a day’s drive of the Capitol.  What do you think would happen if audits began to reveal massive problems with the legitimacy of the 2020 elections(as is happening now in Arizona) while the highly politicized DOJ or Cyrus Vance or others decided to perp-walk Trump on some politicized charge? Do you think the people in DC would have reason to want to paralyze travel along the Eastern seaboard?

People have asked why Liz Cheney has such a hate on for Donald Trump. It’s easy to overlook some things, but remember in DC that everything comes down to connections and who’s doing whom. Her husband is Philip Perry, a former associate attorney general, general counsel for OMB, and general counsel for Homeland Security in the Bush years. This guy not only knows where some of the bodies are buried, but probably buried a few on his own.  More to the point, however, the law firm for which he now works, Latham and Watkins, has come under criticism for its contacts with and work for companies deeply connected to the Chinese Communist Party. That’s right, Cheney is likely a beneficiary of the CCP’s buy-off scams in DC, like so many in Washington DC, via a spouse.

All of this is about two things, boiled down, and you need to understand it: These people in Washington DC, the UniParty and the DeepStaters, have been running a non-stop scam on this country for decades.  Left in office much longer, Trump was going to begin uncovering it. Once the dominoes would have begun to fall, there would have been no stopping it or concealing it any longer.  This is the basis of the motives behind all of the NeverTrumpers, and most of the Democrats. These are deeply compromised people, all of them, most of them having engaged in some sort of treason-for-pay or other serious crimes for which they’re either being blackmailed or are subject to possible blackmail, along with prosecution for the hidden crimes. This is the motive.

What they’re willing to do about it is something else again. They are willing to tear down the country, burn it down to its foundations, and use explosives to wreck that too.  Think carefully about this: Imagine you’re the kind of treasonous vermin who would screw your entire country for a few pieces of silver, and the lowly moral character that evinces.  Now consider what, in that context, you’d be willing to do to prevent the disclosure of your crimes, your betrayals, and your treason.  What wouldn’t you burn to the ground in order to preserve what you’ve gained by your illicit activities, or even to simply conceal your crimes from the public?

These people are far worse than the dirtbags who were the object of the French revolutionaries’ collective ire.  If the people of France then thought the guillotine was a suitable remedy, it may well be the case that if you ever learn the full extent of the crimes of the DC UniParty, you may be demanding a giant meat-grinder.  They know it.  They’re willing to kill all of you to conceal it.  They’re willing to launch a war to hide it.  They’re willing to lose the war in order that we surrender and thereby yield our constitution.  Do you understand?  This war, the one that’s on slow-boil at the moment, is part of a strategy by which they will finally rid themselves of the deplorables who built the country and provided them their high offices.  Your usefulness to them is now over.  Now, it’s all about controlling you and protecting themselves.  They see your elimination as the best way to protect themselves.  They’re importing your replacements so they can maintain the illusion of “democracy” even now.  They’re willing to live with CCP masters in the short-term, because they’re all the same kind of monsters.  All of them.

They will pit Americans against Americans, vaccinated against unvaccinated, masked against unmasked, criminal against innocent, child against parent, and public official against the public.  They don’t care how much of the country burns.  They’re willing to burn it all to the ground to conceal their rampant profiteering off their offices, their treasons against the whole of the people, and whatever else it may take so that they don’t lose power, wealth, control, and especially so that they never face justice.

Do you really think you can just “vote them out?” You’ve tried that, many times, and in many movements. It’s never ultimately worked, but they’ve always managed to work you.  It’s true that most of the street agitators are just useful idiots, and knowing that is important, but it’s also not relevant to your preparations for the war they’re already waging against you.  You must begin to put yourself in a different mindset, in which the preservation of your life and the lives of your loved-ones are your primary operative consideration.  There is no chance we come back from this as a country if these people are permitted to succeed.  Again, they want you dead and buried.  You are the object of this war.

Take stock of food-stuff, and emergency supplies.  Make contact with your neighbors and discover what they’re doing to prepare.  Urge them to prepare. Remember, when the fecal matter hits the fan, every person who is prepared is one fewer person you’ll need to fend off when they run out of resources.  Be prepared to fend them off, too.

At the moment, you have precious little time, as they prepare to take their war against us to the next step. I expect them to cut off communications among us at some point.  I expect them to try to prevent us from talking among ourselves, so that they can control all information.  That’s what’s happened in Cuba, and in the black-out of information and news, these monsters always thrive. Expect all of the mainstream media to be vicious propaganda.  Expect power outages disguised as cyber-attacks.  Expect fuel shortages.  Expect mass starvation.  Expect all the Hell you can imagine in a dystopian world the sort of which they need.  Don’t drive panic.  Instill confidence through preparedness.  Time is short, patriots.

While we have still a moment of relative peace, let us make preparations for war, that if war comes, we are able to prevail. The only alternative is unpreparedness, and with it, death.  Do not yield your life and your life’s works so easily. Do not lose it all within sight of victory.  Prepare to fight to save all you love.  You will need resolve most of all.  Go forth in pursuit of peace, but know that along that path almost certainly lies war.

 

 

 

 

#ElectionCoup Updates

This is a Coup d’etat disguised as an election

Because of the way in which Fascistbook and the TwitNazis are censoring content on their platforms, I am going to post links and videos here so that you can read them without the post itself being throttled or censored on their platforms. Think of this post as a workaround for their attempts to suppress truth.

From Thursday, November 12th:

Pamela Geller: Dominion Voting Systems Whistleblowers Come Forward

 

From Wednesday, November 11th:

Report argues there is incontrovertible evidence of massive hack of election.

 

From Monday, November 9th:

Again, TheGatewayPundit scores another huge story: As many as 132,000 ballots in Fulton County, Georgia are ineligible.

The Moment Vote Counts flipped in Virginia.

 

From Sunday, November 8th:

First, watch this video:

The article she mentions is linked here.

This just in from Sidney Powell, one of President Trump’s attorneys:

We’ve Identified 450,000 Ballots that Miraculously ONLY have a Vote for Joe Biden – Sidney Powell

Here’s an analysis from a statistician. He shows the serious anomalies in Pennsylvania.

Now there’s this story of very unusual happenings in Milwaukee.

Wisconsin elections clerks may have illegally altered thousands of absentee ballots.

TheGatewayPundit published this fascinating(and damning) statistical analysis of the distribution of votes.

Joe Hoft over at TheGatewayPundit  is doing excellent work with a prioritized list of election issues that need to be pursued and how you can help.

Unbelievable: GateWayPundit reports some nitwit who claims to work for Wayne County, Michigan claims to have trashed tens of thousands of Trump Ballots

I will continue to add information to this page. If you spot something useful, please add it in comments. Thanks to all.

MAGA!

Oh, and for entertainment purposes, with STRONG LANGUAGE WARNING:

Dissident Virologist Says China Created and Intentionally Released #WuFlu

Wednesday, September 16th, 2020

Have we been attacked?

I mentioned this in an earlier article, but last night, Tucker Carlson actually had the doctor on his show to talk about it. Dr. Li-Meng Yan appeared on Foxnews on Tuesday evening to explain that COVID19 is a manufactured virus. Basically, she termed COVID19 as a kind of viral “Frankenstein” created with pieces of different viruses in a laboratory, and intentionally released it into the world. It also explains why China shut down travel to Wuhan within their country, but permitted travel to the rest of the world from Wuhan to continue.

If true, this constitutes biological warfare, and China has attacked us along with the rest of the world. If true, this was an act of war.

Here’s the video;:

President Trump has been correct to doubt China, and to think this was a horrible act on their part. Now, it’s becoming clearer that nearly 200,000 Americans may have died in an intentional attack using this virus as a weapon.

Napolitano Wrong, As Usual

Tuesday, January 8th, 2019

As usual, the open-borders, chamber-of-commerce media, including FoxNews rushed out to tell you what you need to know.  As usual, they intentionally mislead you about the nature of the law. While I’ve already covered this issue, demonstrating plainly that President Trump has the authority, the media is great at lying and propagandizing, and sadly, that includes FoxNews on immigration-related issues.  Everything is squeezed through the filters they want you to see.  Let’s take a look at what FoxNews “Judicial Analyst” Andrew Napolitano has to say, and let’s see about the facts.  First, the video:

Now let’s analyze Napolitano’s claims and assertions about the law, which I’ve here paraphrased and condensed for further examination:

  • Presidents can’t seize property under emergency declarations.
  • Presidents can’t spend money without congressional authorization in an emergency.
  • The President must “make a case” for a declared emergency.
  • If the President had authority to spend money under emergencies, we’d have seen it before, but we haven’t.
  • Sometimes Congress has “looked the other way” when Presidents reallocate defense money from one use to another, but it doesn’t make it lawful.

First, as a general observation, let it be acknowledged that in certain respect, Andrew Napolitano is a radical libertarian on immigration generally, which is a strong reason for FoxNews to have picked somebody else to provide “Judicial Analysis.”  Naturally, FoxNews is itself a corporation that favor open borders, so it’s easy enough to understand their motives in picking open border hacks like Napolitano to make this particular case.

The first assertion of Napolitano was that the President cannot seize property under emergency declarations.

Let us go right to a pretty open-and-shut case: Roosevelt ordered the surrender of privately owned gold and gold certificates to the Federal Reserve on 5 April, 1933.  This was done under executive order 6102, with authority arising from the Trading With the Enemy Act of 1917, as amended. Gold is private property. Roosevelt was acting pursuant to an emergency he declared. Not convinced? Let’s go on to a second example, shall we?  In 1944, Roosevelt ordered the plants, offices, and warehouses of Montgomery Ward to be seized in order to force compliance with an emergency-based order of collective bargaining with a labor union, due to the ongoing war, which was the basis of the emergency. (World War II.)

Let’s just stop right there on Napolitano’s first point.  He’s busted.  Thoroughly.  There are hundreds more examples where Presidents made seizures of private property in time of war or emergency.  It’s called the “rule of necessity,” and it is the legal basis for all emergency doctrine.  Like most libertarians, I find such authority despicable, but they exist, have been exercised, and precedents must be recognized, as all the “wise judicial analysts” like to insist.

The Law: 1  Andrew Napolitano: 0

His next assertion was that Presidents can’t spend money without authorization by Congress in an emergency.  Let’s ask a Democrat Congressman:


Imagine that!  In addition to this, however, there are at least three known instances of Presidents’ spending without any prior Congressional appropriations:

  • Washington’s Unilateral spending to suppress the 1794 Whiskey Rebellion
  • Jefferson’s purchases of saltpepper and sulphur after the Chesapeake incident
  • Lincoln’s advance of $2 million to purchase supplies in advance of the Civil War in 1861

(See pages 22-23 of the following PDF from Harvard Law:  Constitutionality of Executive Spending)

These are older examples, but if it was good enough for Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln, it’s probably good enough for President Trump.

The Law: 2  Andrew Napolitano: 0

His next assertion was that Presidents must “make a case” to declare emergencies.  This implies that a President must go find approval.  That’s not the case. In point of fact, all a president must do is issue an emergency declaration, and point to his legal authority, and then act.  This has been done repeatedly.

The Law: 3  Andrew Napolitano: 0

His next assertion has already been covered: He claimed that if the President had such authority, we’d have seen it used before, but we haven’t.  See Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln above.

The Law: 4  Andrew Napolitano: 0

His last general assertion is that Congress may have “looked the other way” when it suited them, but that it isn’t lawful.

The problem with this notion is that legal precedents are born of such practices.  If Congress historically “looks the other way,” time after time, permitting the President to do such things without challenging them, it can also be interpreted as an endorsement of that action, or at least an affirmation of its legitimacy. In short, the court could very well view it as a precedent that bears upon their decisions thereafter.  “Looking the other way” once or twice might be tantamount to surrendering the issue in perpetuity.

The Law: 5 Andrew Napolitano: 0

Of course, there was at least one more assertion that had been made by Brian Kilmeade in the video clip above.  He mentioned that one couldn’t rightly term this an “emergency” because it would take too long.

This is a bizarre point.  The United States has been operating under all sorts of emergency statutes for DECADES, some of them continuously since the days of Jimmy Carter, and even earlier.  Read this fascinating article.

Imagine that, and yes, score Mr. Kilmeade a big fat zero.

It’s time for the left and the pro-amnesty, open-borders media and political culture to shut the Hell up and get out of President Trump’s way.  If he declares an emergency, he’ll have every bit of law and precedence on his side.

Presidential Authority During National Emergencies

Sunday, January 6th, 2019

As the media begins to go absolutely nuts over the idea that the President might declare an emergency and re-allocate military funds to build the wall, it would be useful to review all the sorts of authorities any President has in time of emergency.  The radical statists who comprise the left are in favor of such power, but at the moment, such power, in the hands of President Trump, is contrary to their political interests.  Their whole shtick is “resist.”  Their rabid, anti-America base will oppose him simply because he’s not them.  The NeverTrump republicans, including opportunists like Mitt Romney, will undoubtedly oppose him.  Before the shrill voices grow louder, confounding our ability to understand the issue, let’s look at the law to see if we can easily surmise whether such an action by the President is authorized by the constitution.  After all, the constitution must be our yardstick.  With that in mind, let us examine why it is that President Trump is fully within the bounds of his constitutional authority to declare an emergency and build the wall, using the military to do so if need be.

First, let’s see what the President has to say on the matter, this past Friday in the Rose Garden:

One of the things always available to any president is the powers of Commander in Chief.  Article II of the United States Constitution makes one thing expressly explicit in Section II:

The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.”(Emphasis mine.)

The bolded portion here is easily understood.  He’s in charge of the military.  He decides how and when federal troops and state militia[national guard] will be deployed.  He, solely, is vested with the authority to determine their mission, and their day-to-day activities in pursuit of that mission.  Not Congress.  Not the courts.  Not the Secretary of Defense(who works for him directly.)  Nobody else trumps the President in the deployment of the armed forces.  Nobody can countermand him in his role as Commander in Chief.  Not John Roberts.  Not Nancy Pelosi.  Not Mitch McConnell.  Got it?  Seriously, if you have any doubt whatever about this, I have doubts about your reading comprehension.

The President can, within his authority, bring all of the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines, be they active or reserve components, or National Guard components, and assign them the mission of building the wall.  He can, within the scope of his authority, redirect EVERY MEMBER OF THE UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES, up to and including the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and also all DoD civilians, shovels and pick-axes in hand, to begin building the wall. He has this authority.

Some will point out that this is all well and good – that the President has the manpower available – but he does not have the money for the materials.  Wrong. Since the President determines the disposition of the Armed Forces, he also has some significant latitude in determining a number of things.  He can, at any moment, instruct the SecDef to cancel a contract.  Imagine all the whining Congress critters who have significant defense contracts in their districts who would lose their collective minds when he redirected funds in this manner.  It’s within his authority. Also, he can call all active forces to support the Army Corps of Engineers, who he can command to direct the construction.  There are all sorts of caches of “emergency funds” built into various budget areas that can be put to work in this way.  Congress is powerless to stop it because they’ve already appropriated and authorized the funds.

The President of the United States has broad powers already delegated to him by Congress to meet various emergencies.  For instance, while I believe the War Powers Act is probably unconstitutional if any President wanted to challenge its limits, there is nothing to prohibit a president from feigning compliance. A president could very easily declare a national security emergency arising from our porous Southern border, and deploy our forces in support of that mission. At the very least, he’d have 60 days to make an initial report to Congress, and a further 30 days to withdraw forces(which means the limit is effectively 90 days, where US border operations would be concerned.)  He need only be able to show that there is an attack of any sort on the United States.  Did you happen to notice those Soros-funded idiots throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails and other weapons at our border agents recently?  That’s an attack against the United States, folks.

Readers would do well to acquaint themselves with Title 50 of the United States code.  It would also be useful to examine the Insurrection Act of 1807, as amended.  This, by itself, may provide all the justification Trump would need under existing law.  Congress would be powerless to impede him.  Under the auspices of the National Emergencies Act, the President can do all manner of thing, but all Congress may do is pass a joint resolution of both houses of Congress to stop it. (And this may be open to Presidential challenge in courts.)

As readers are well aware, the United States of America has been at war since 2001.  Due to this fact, the President’s general set of authorities are somewhat broader than they might otherwise be during peacetime.  Folks, President Trump has so much power that he hasn’t even begun to exercise that he could build a wall from San Diego to Manhattan before the courts could untangle it all.  The simple point is that the President has this authority.  You may not like it.  Hell, generally speaking, I don’t like it because it has been abused constantly to the detriment of the American people.  Wilson and Roosevelt were monsters.  They did so many things under “emergency doctrine” that still carry the weight and force of law that I shudder to consider it.  If President Trump finally acts to build a wall along our Southern border, it will be one of the rare legitimate uses of such powers in my lifetime.

Democrats and NeverTrump RINOs might hate it, but if President Trump pursues this course, he’s certainly got every manner of precedent to support him, and there is every conceivable loophole in existing law to support it.  If he really wants to, nothing can stop President Trump from building that wall, except perhaps  impeachment and removal, and while the Democrats may be able to carry out the first, there’s next to zero chance they can remove him in the Senate. The American people would revolt.  Bank on it.

The War on America

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

america_burning_ft

There have been a number of considerable turning points in American history, and I believe we have reached another.  After 9/11, one of the conclusions of the Commission set up to investigate the attack concluded, among other things, that one of the reasons the attackers had been successful is that while through the 1990s, al-Qaeda had been in an openly-declared war against the United States, for the most part, our government had conducted itself as though no war existed, taking little action against al-Qaeda despite a ratcheting escalation against our nation, with attacks at the Kobar Towers, The USS Cole, the embassies that came under attack in Africa, and numerous other less infamous attacks.  The critique of the 9/11 Commission on this point was correct, and in many ways, it should have served as a warning that history provides a nation for its future remembrance and consideration, but it seems the lesson is lost on our people and our politicians.  As bad as al-Qaeda or ISIS may be, and as mortifying as their campaign of terrorism and murderous intentions may be, I believe we now face a more virulent threat, one that threatens to destroy not only people and planes and buildings, but America itself.  Here, I do not mean “the United States,” but instead the very idea that is and has been “America,” writ large across history’s pages.  Most frightening of all, it seems too many Americans are blissfully unaware, but what we now face is an irrational enemy that rivals al-Qaeda in their evil intentions, and possesses one significant advantage in its war against us:  They are of us. They are among us.  They are everywhere around you, and their hatred of America is no less sincere, and no less vengeful.  Ladies and gentlemen, we are in a war undeclared in words, but a war nevertheless affirmed by their actions, and it is a war on everything we love. We must adopt the appropriate mindset.

I have cited here before the amazing and simultaneously terrifying similarities between the radical left and militant Islam.  In terms of the peculiarities of their respective grievances with America, it would seem at least superficially distinct, but upon closer examination, one begins to note that in truth, there are very few differences that amount to much.  One might argue, for instance, that the radical left supports extended special rights and protections for homosexuals, whereas militant Islam seems to be most comfortable when heaving homosexuals from rooftops, such that one would never think that the two groups could have much in common, but I beg you reconsider.  For the radical left, homosexuals are just another pressure group in their endless war of identity politics. The “LGBTQ community” is merely another vehicle for the advance of their deepest socio-political ambitions, which care not in the least for the actual people one whose behalf they claim to advocate.  Note instead that in a choice between supporting militant Islam and conservative Americans, the left gleefully chooses the former, since the latter is their true enemy.

In the same way, militant Islamists would seem to share no particular affinity for leftists, until you consider their ruling philosophy.  It is true that while the left is generally secularist in its thinking, and militant Islam is thoroughly religious on its face, both seek the same basic union: Leftists desire the aggregation of all power and law under a secular government, removing all individual discretion of any kind, including thought or expression, while Islamists seek to remove all obstacles to a theocracy that likewise eschews any notion of the individual human being.  Both claim the supremacy of their respective goals;  to carry out either ultimate plans requires the forceful subsumption of all human discretion under their immediate martial control.  In theory, this distinction between the secular and religious would seem a broad difference, but in practice, it requires the same ultimate series of oppressive undertakings, requiring the absolute suppression of the individual in any personal dimension.

We have arrived in a state of our culture in which the more committed radical leftists now take up arms to carry out their own sort of Jihad against Republican legislators.  What makes this different from the parade of political assassins of the left in times gone by is that here, the Jihadist didn’t care so much about a particular target, but was instead motivated by extraordinary hatred against the core ideas of America.  He shot Congressman Scalise, but Scalise wasn’t a specific target, except inasmuch as he happened to be a Republican.  What signals to me the onset of the open war against America is not merely the attack waged by this leftist goon, but instead the disgusting, despicable reaction of the whole leftist media and political establishment that immediately set out to justify and rationalize the attack, turning to blaming the victims of the attack, intimating that Scalise(and all Republicans) deserve what they get.

At the same time, the radical left, which is now nearly the whole body and appendages of the mainstream media and the government bureaucracy are now aligned to destroy President Donald Trump.  As you will have known, I am not Trump’s greatest advocate, but he is after all the duly elected President of the United States, is qualified to hold that office, and he seems to be setting about fulfilling his duties despite my sometimes significant disagreements with his policy preferences.  This circumstance is wholly unacceptable to the virulent radical left.  They will remove him from office, one way or the other, and indeed, any Republican who would follow him, not because he is all that far from the more moderate folk in their political party, but because he is of the opposition, and that he might manage a mildly conservative thing or two, and reverse some parts of the drive toward their ultimate goal: The complete subjugation of any remaining philosophically American people, and the unrelenting demolition of the underlying idea that had been Americanism.

The war being conducted against Trump is spawned of the radical left’s stranglehold on the mass media(not merely the news media,) and the stranglehold they have on the bureaucracy that is the deep state.  They are coordinating to destroy him, as evidenced and typified by Comey’s leak to his friend, and by the official state as made plain by the unmasking of Michael Flynn and unknown (as yet) others in and around the Trump campaign and administration.  None of this is accidental, and it all has the same underlying purpose: De-legitimize Trump in preparation for removing him from office, legally if possible, forcefully if they can provoke it among one of their more violent lunatics, or by political destruction in 2020 if nothing else succeeds.  They have the whole of the mass media, the news, and the entire extended welfare state and security bureaucracy of the government at their immediate disposal, and while Trump clearly knows he’s under attack, I don’t think he’s quite yet grasped how thorough his challenges are, or how even to begin fighting for his own survival.

This sickening, depraved assault on the Trump presidency is really just an extension of the radical left’s war on us.  He’s actually a proxy for the obstacle we present the left in their war on America and Americanism.  What Trump must now do, and I hope someone close to him will prevail upon him to recognize it, is to defend himself and the country with all the power of the presidency, by every available means.  Trump could be creative and intelligent in this respect, but he must find the right sort of strategic and tactical thinkers to carry it out. The executive branch is gigantic, and most agencies and departments of the US Federal Government fall under the President’s direct control.  If Trump wishes to win this war, he must begin where his power is strongest under our constitutional system, and that means making an all-out war against the bureaucracy and its innumerable hangers-on.

Hiring freezes are nice, but that’s barely a pimple on the behemoth’s backside.  His watchwords should be: “Reorganize and restructure.” At present, the bureaucracy of the whole Federal Government is structured in a manner optimal to its growth and further aggregation of power.  It is staffed with people who are most frequently hostile to the idea that is America, and the people throughout the country who still cling stubbornly to those ideals.  More, Trump is in a position to use the bureaucracy’s own arguments to demolish it.  Trump can do something none have ever dared to do before, and sweep out so much of the Federal leviathan.  You might ask how Trump could accomplish this. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Move whole departments and their headquarters of the Federal Government out of Washington DC and its immediate surrounds, justifying it as an example of trying to get all the nation’s most critical eggs out of the same vulnerable basket
  • Eliminate whole sections and sub-departments of various agencies on the basis of a “green” movement, trying to make the federal government more environmentally friendly by reducing its size and carbon footprint.
  • Instruct the bureaucracy to release Obama era working papers, various and sundry studies, and all manner of leftist undertaking all in the name of open, honest, and transparent government.  Consider even a campaign of declassifying information where it has no further relevance to national security
  • Replace every bureaucrat above the rank of janitor, driving them off with new policies justified in various ways, and removing perquisites where they exist.  Take away government-issued vehicles and issue bicycles. Take away work-owned cellular phones from all but the absolutely most critical personnel as a cost-saving measure.
  • Similarly, eliminate Internet access as both a security measure and a cost-saving measure except for those whose jobs absolutely require it.

Obviously, this is far from an exhaustive list, but you can let your imagination run away a little bit with these sorts of approaches. There’s no end to the ways in which the bureaucracy can be brought to heel, but it’s time, finally, for Trump to begin that job in earnest, if not as a purely utilitarian approach to government reform, then at least as a matter of his(and our) defense.

Donald Trump needs to recognize that the radical left is at war with America every bit as zealously as are al-Qaeda and ISIS.  Even now, their more virulently maniacal members are being motivated to real attacks and real violence against Americans and Americanism.  For precisely the same reason they help to cover up militant Islamists’ attacks in the media, and with the same undeniable political agenda, their intention is to conceal this war against America and Americans as long as possible.  The time is coming when this war may enter a new and more dangerous phase, when the violence will become increasingly routine and more accepted in the mass media, and if you watch what is happening in Europe with militant Islam, you begin to grasp what is afoot for America, now under attack by radical leftists.  Trump is the only person in a position in our government to openly oppose all of this, and while he may be active on Twitter, it’s time for him to become more activist in his defense and defense of the Republic.  After eight long years of a president openly hostile to America and Americans, and a media all too willing to redefine even what those words mean on his behalf, it’s time for President Trump to live up to his “America First” proclamation.  He’ll need our support if he’s to succeed, but first, it’s time for him to strike back, and the power of the presidency is a very nearly unlimited weapon in the fight against the colossus that is the Federal bureaucracy.

One might ask how going after the bureaucracy will stanch the radical left’s war on America, but the truth is that initially, it will cause them to react somewhat more reflexively and perhaps violently to the change, but if they are permitted to fester longer, it strengthens them, and it offers them comfort. The Federal government is their “safe space,” and it’s time to pull that particular rug from beneath them. Every time the deep state launches an attack on Trump or his administration, and each time some mad-cap leftist carries out an attack against peaceful Republicans, the virulent left is heartened. To win this war, Trump is going to need to break their spirit, and hearten the actual Americans who remain among us.  Taking on the bureaucracy is entirely within his constitutional scope.  Delaying this a moment longer is merely to yield more ground to an unrelenting, irrational evil.   When Trump pointed out that the news media are effectively an enemy of the people, he was right, and perhaps much more so than simplistic evaluations of his more bombastic proclamations reveal, but also, I fear, more than he knew at the time.  It isn’t just the media, however.  Specifically, it’s the radical leftist media, a near hegemony that is in league with the deep state, and indeed, the entire Washington DC establishment.

President Trump doesn’t need to openly declare war against the left, at least initially.  What this war against America requires is a substantive response, and that response should come in the form of a complete demolition of the deep state bureaucracy, shamelessly and tirelessly using the full palette of presidential powers contemplated by our constitution as the chief executive presiding over the executive branch. He won’t need to declare it, because the leftists will scream at the tops of their shrill little voices, and the remnant of America will understand the source of the noise, and be heartened.  It’s a war, and we ought to have such lesser skirmishes while it’s still possible in order to preclude the many deeper tragedies the left will beget if unopposed.  There is still time to save America, and it’s time for President Trump to launch the counteroffensive, as only the President has the authority to do.  If the left is not stopped soon, the disasters that will be visited upon the shrinking remnant of America will be more thorough than those that either al-Qaeda or ISIS can begin to realize. The radical left is every bit as dangerous as the militant element of Islam, and it’s time to do something about it.

 

 

 

Obama’s SOTU: Blah Blah Blah – Here’s the Truth

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

Do Any Believe?

There’s nothing more annoying than the dishonest spectacle that has become of our traditional State of the Union address.  President Obama will address Congress, and with it, the nation, and he will lie unconditionally and remorselessly.  He will tell us how we’re creating jobs, but that we can do more.  He will talk about the gap increasing between the rich and the poor, never telling you that it is his policies that are expanding the gap, while adding many more people to the poverty category. He will almost certainly discuss green energy, but he will not mention how he has used crony capitalism in that field to rob the American people.  What he probably will not mention is “Obama-care,” at least by that name. He may reference the Affordable Care Act and promise that things will get better for the disastrous program.  Whatever he says, it is likely to be a lie, in part or in whole, because he can’t very well go before the Congress and the American people and speak the truth about either his aims or the true State of the Union. Let us speak the truth.

As we have witnessed, there are now fewer Americans working than at any time since the Carter administration, and there are more people receiving government subsidies than ever before.  To the degree Wall Street has been doing well, it is only because the Federal Reserve has been pumping funny-money into the economy through Wall Street.  Government debt is growing at a phenomenal rate, unsustainable by any rational measure, and none of his so-called “stimulus” has born any fruit for the general economy, no matter how much his cronies on Wall Street and K Street may have benefited.

Our defenses haven’t been in such sorry shape since Carter, and our foreign policy is a mess.  Iran will have nuclear weapons, because Obama won’t do a thing to intervene.  At virtually every opportunity, this president can be seen to support the enemies of the United States while often snubbing long-time allies.  On the home-front, he continues to use the intelligence apparatus of the US against the American people.  Indeed, he is turning the entirety of the Federal Government into his own political police force even as his purge of senior military officers continues unabated.

He is stripping us of our defenses in a violent world, while advancing the cause of despotism at home. If you happen to publish anything even vaguely disagreeable, you can expect some arm of the Federal Government to pay you a visit, or otherwise persecute and prosecute you on any trumped-up charge.  Obama is converting the United States into a police-state, in which government has unlimited discretion but individuals have none.

“Vengeance is mine!” sayeth Obama.  He is pursuing revenge against the free market, political enemies, the rights of citizens and anybody else he believes must be punished.  Most of all, this means America as we have known it is under constant attack; the virtues that had begotten its prosperity are being stripped away.  The larger body of the American people feel set-upon, and they are under the gun.  Every virtue they had practiced in pursuit of their happiness is being punished.

Expect the President to tell us again that if Congress will not act, he has a phone and a pen, with which he will bring down further terror against the American people.  Will you have health insurance within the span of another year?  Wonder. Worry.  Watch and see.  Will you be able to keep any of your earnings by the time he is through?  What will they be worth once he finishes inflating the money supply?  Will you be permitted to speak your mind?  Will you be permitted to keep (never mind ‘bear’) arms in your own defense?  Will you be secure in your person against unreasonable searches and seizures?  Will you be immune from indefinite imprisonment? What measure of your liberties will he leave unmolested?

Now we prepare to listen to the dictator lay down the law, as if that had been his constitutional function all along. His stooges and henchmen go out into the press and broadcast that now is the time for “action” and “direct action” and “real action.”  When you hear or read this, what you’re really witnessing is leftist code for mob violence. Obama is losing his grip on the hearts of Americans charitable enough to have given him a chance.  He has capitalized on this tendency of Americans, but their patience has worn thin in most quarters.  His enchanting sing-song of 2008 no longer “plays in Peoria.”  As things stand, he certainly won’t gain control of the House and could still lose the Senate in November, but he does not wish to be obstructed.  Obama is carrying out a coup d’etat and the media won’t tell you much about it, because they’re largely complicit, if not directly assisting in bringing it to fruition.

Now is the time when the left will act to consolidate its power, and to cement the “fundamental transformation” of America they had promised, and this means making certain it can never be undone.  Prepare yourselves, Americans, for the tyrant-king has set the stage, but up until now it’s been a warm-up act.  He knew he couldn’t complete his mission in four years, but with a second term and three years remaining, now he can afford to take more dramatic steps.  Do not be astonished by what you hear tonight, if watch this spectacle you must, but instead watch for the unspoken words behind the sentiments that will herald the beginning of the end of the republic.

 

Three Courses Among Which None Wish to Choose

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

Easier not to choose?

I’ve remained still these last weeks waiting to see the outcome of things in my own world.  My wife suffered a heart attack in early December, and while she survived and is on the mend, it put me into a pensive mood during which I’ve said little while simply absorbing what’s going on in the world around us.  I don’t have all of the answers, but what I do know is that we have a choice to make.  It struck me with a certain clarity when I realized that for all the efforts of good and conscientious conservatives, we’re barely making a dent.  The American people are thoroughly dispirited in a way not seen since Carter, and maybe even the pre-war era of FDR’s long and loathsome administration.  Nothing is improving.  Jobs are scarce.  The printed currency is piling up, and with it a stack of IOUs that would reach from Earth to the no-longer-planet Pluto.  What strikes me most is the unwillingness to choose, perhaps because all of the options seem so depressingly bad.  We are now at a stage in our civilization’s collapse that we must fight, reform, or surrender.  Make no mistake about it, as while we defer the choice, the available options only become more severe in their fullest meanings.  In time, the choice will be taken from us, and surrender will be replaced by slavery, whether we’d choose it or not. Even now, the embrace of the police state is transforming from a gentle, confidence-instilling hug into a death-grip from which it seems there may be no escape.

Maybe it’s time you had that blunt bit of talk with loved-ones who may not realize what’s afoot.    I know I’ve tried.  Some never listen because it’s too painful.  More often, because it is a complicated problem with implications that will reach into every life, most refuse to consider it.  Our nation is well on its way to becoming Rome.  We witness now the harbingers of our moral collapse, with an unconscionable display of motherly pride in a son who literally prostituted himself to homosexual pornography to support her household.  Lot’s wife had at least the advantage of a husband who would tell her to avert her eyes.  This scandalous decline in our cultural moral standards has left us with a nation that is rudderless not only in Washington DC, but in Everytown, USA, where plain, ordinary citizens no longer seem to muster much moral indignation about anything of consequence, while others rush to uphold the vile, the obnoxious, and the nonsensical.

Don’t misunderstand me: There are still many Americans who feel as I do, and you may well be among them, yet we are a declining proportion of a population overwhelmingly beset with endless distractions that will mean nothing when they find themselves at some future date languishing in the gutter.  I don’t believe it must end this way, but if we don’t choose another course, and soon, it will end this way.  As one friend constantly reminds me, “nothing ends well or it would never end.”  There’s a certain pragmatism to that view against which I would like to rebel, but like most of my readers, I feel the crushing weight of history pressing down upon us.

Will we fight?  Will a beleaguered people take up arms?  Many an American has made oaths, not all of them idle, about the nature of how they will go down, but I wonder if when faced with it, how many will simply fold.  More, one could wonder if this is not precisely what certain statist elements are attempting to provoke.  Against the combined forces of the modern government, who could long endure?  Who would desire this sort of outcome?  Who would want a fractured nation consumed by civil war?  Still, if it became the only viable option for our survival, I wonder how many would stand and fight, and for what they’d be fighting.

Will we surrender?  Will we yield to the historic march of statism, giving up first the last measures of our personal sovereignty; our property, such slim wealth as we may have managed to preserve, and all personal discretion to a police state that will command our every action, and make our every choice?   The evidence today would suggest that this shall be our path.  Despite its clear predatory aims against our liberties, observe the fact that at least one-third of Americans still believe the failed roll-out of the monstrous “Obama-care” should continue.  Such people do not deserve freedom, and will not long cling to it, precisely because such measures of freedom they tend to demand are merely vestiges of the concept.

Will we reform?  Here lies the last option for salvaging the nation, yet it is also the historically slimmest probability. The singular advantage we may possess when compared to all the collapsing civilizations that have before us descended into ash is that our basic law has been so difficult to amend that it has succeeded only twenty-seven times in more than two-hundred years.  What this means is that some vital portions have been left intact, leaving to us an escape-clause of sorts, and a method by which to reach from the grave’s brink at the last moment to reform our dying civilization.  This makes us undeniably unique with respect to opportunity, but the question remains as to whether we can summon the character in sufficient numbers to reach for that constitutional kill-switch.

I have become convinced that while we may tinker around with this office or that, and while we may occasionally elect a competent, sincere conservative, the federal authorities in Washington rule almost without respect to our laws, never mind our wishes.  Mark Levin has stated often and with growing impatience that we will almost certainly fail to reform by focusing on the federal government and its elected office-holders.  We must reach into the constitutional tool-kit and utilize its most powerful weapon against the centralization of power in Washington DC: Article V. holds the entire mechanism for reforms we seek.  It is not an easy road, and there will be no instant gratification, but if we are to overcome the gaping maw of the all-powerful government now consuming us, it is upon the authority of Article V that our salvation may rest. If you’ve not yet read The Liberty Amendments, I would urge you to consider picking up a copy soon.

Even now, we can observe the Obama administration’s predatory, despotic intentions.  While a review board declared that the NSA’s spying on US citizens should cease, the Obama administration rejected the board’s conclusions.  While we watch, the Obama administration makes it plain that they are checking their enemies list and checking it twice, and the only way to escape it is to be perpetually nice to the administration and its aims.  No dissent of any sort will be tolerated, whether you’re Dinesh D’Souza or a Tea Party activist.  Worse, the Republicans on Capitol Hill are joining in, with Mitch McConnell saying the Tea Party needs a punch in the nose.  There is really no longer any question about it: The war on the American people, their culture, their traditions, and their dreams is in full force, never mind the complete destruction of any prosperity they had once known.  There is no accident in it, and it’s all going according to plan.  My question for you remains: Will we submit to this historic script, with our part as helpless victims played to the hilt?

It’s time for us to consider whether we will be led down that same old path.  We’re barely more than nine months from the mid-terms, and the evidence is that we are yielding momentum as the Republicans in Washington DC continue to throttle our efforts. One might wonder how this can be, but I understand it: We are exhausted, our morale has taken a beating, and more and more of us find we’re under an economic strain that makes other efforts seem too tiring.  Some of us have noticed the expanding police state, deciding it best to lie low and to refrain from open activism.  Myself, I feel as though I must now get all of my personal effects in order, in the manner of a soldier preparing for a deployment to war.  Sometimes, I wonder if that’s merely my perception, but something tells me I’m not alone.

Like any other movement, it’s time to assess our position, our options, and our next move.  Waiting for the “Republicans” to save us clearly won’t yield any fruit, so we must ask whether we now huddle in darkness waiting for the end, or instead rise in some fashion. I credit Mark Levin for reminding us of the one way out of all of this that remains, but now the challenge is before us:  We have a choice, and we’d best make it before it’s made for us.

How Many Americans Still Don’t Understand: We’re at War

Can there be peace?

Most Americans are too charitably naive to recognize his actions as anything more than business-as-usual, dirty politics, but what this President is doing goes far beyond anything this country has seen previously, exceeding even the thuggery that was rampant under Franklin Roosevelt.  Roosevelt had the good sense to avoid directly “flipping the bird” at the American people, however, even if that was the net effect of his policies.  He certainly wasn’t bold enough to attack American heroes, or to perversely torment the families of US service-members killed in action.  FDR was too careful a politician for that, but the same cannot be said of Barack Obama.  Since the beginning of the partial government shutdown, he’s been conducting a campaign of attacks against treasured American values, while inflicting maximum pain on the most vulnerable. He’s trying to provoke the American people, with one object in mind: He wants a violent reaction from the American people so he can carry out his deadly intentions.  Had you wondered why DHS needed more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition?  Most Americans believe he’s just another politician, but he’s nothing of the sort. The evidence lies not only in his unrepentantly communistic past, but also in the intransigence of his actions.  There will be no negotiations.  This is war, the American people are his enemy, and he knows it.

By all that is good on Earth, Barack Obama should not be president.  He shouldn’t have been elected, and he certainly shouldn’t have been re-elected.  Now that he will never face another election, he’s undertaking to destroy the country more quickly than before, and sadly, there are a few on the Republican side in Washington DC who cannot wait to help him.  I address here the establishment Republicans of the sort who are trying to help Boehner sneak amnesty through while Americans are watching the shutdown fight, including former Vice Presidential candidate and general snake-in-the-grass Paul Ryan(R-WI.) He has been laboring with various Democrats to put that steaming pile of dog excrement over on us while we’re otherwise engaged.  “Watch this hand…” Even at that, however, nothing compares with the provocations being thrown like satchel-charges into the American political arena by Barack Obama. His Defense Secretary, the estimable Chuck Hagel, has ordered a suspension of death benefit payments to families of soldiers killed-in-action on the ludicrous basis that benefits to families aren’t the same as benefits to soldiers.

Hagel is a piece of dirt, but he’s simply doing as Obama orders, and this incident may be the thing that lights the fire, if nothing else will.  You see, in truth, service-members’ families really have no benefits that aren’t tied to and dependent upon the service-member.  This last bit of dishonor has been heaped upon them by the man who claims to be their commander-in-chief, but who hasn’t even the guts to take full credit for it, instead relying on Hagel as the heavy.  Don’t be fooled.  This came from the top, and everything about it reeks of the fly-ridden pestilence that is Barack Obama and his inner circle of reds, pinks, and islamo-fascists.  He’s doing this because he knew it would be an outrage.  He’s doing this because it permits him to deliver one final abuse to the service-members’ memories, and to the families who will forever miss them.  This isn’t merely petulant behavior.  It’s the behavior of a bully picking a fight, because that is his ultimate aim.  Already, the number of people talking about impeachment and about arresting this treasonous president has sky-rocketed, just like he planned it.  Before this is over, he wants the American people to be seething with rage, and by my estimation, this incident will go a long way to achieving that end.

Early in his career as a professional Marxist agitator, one of his former Occidental College room-mates noticed that he had a particular affinity for the notion of a violent communist takeover.  That’s right, Barack Obama was one of those nuts in college, and there’s really no evidence that he ever amended his beliefs.  As his former room-mate points out, there is no “conversion story.”  This is because Obama hasn’t converted, remaining the true-believing Marxist monster he had been trained to become by his mother and Frank Marshall Davis.  This man was raised on a solid diet of anti-American sentiment, ironically rising to occupy the office of the President of the United States, abusing now the people of the country at will.  He meets with his star chamber of leftists, Marxists, and garden variety statists to plot out the means by which to drive the American people to the brink of violence.

On Tuesday, he held a press briefing during which he lied endlessly, mis-characterizing virtually every point, both lying about his congressional adversaries, and his own part in the government shutdown and the debt ceiling affair.  The problem is that more and more Americans are beginning to doubt his credibility, since all the evidence actually runs in the opposite direction: More and more are noticing that President Obama is lying to them.  When combined with the indignities being heaped on our service-members, living and deceased, as well as their families and the millions of veterans in the country, it’s becoming clear that he’s trying to instigate a civil war, and slowly but surely, he is succeeding.  This is why he permitted a pro-amnesty group of illegal immigrants and their supporters to rally on the National Mall Tuesday, while denying veterans access to the same grounds.  He’s trying to provoke a violent reaction, and if he continues on this path, I fear he will get what he wants.

As it is, there already exists a movement of truckers and bikers who intend to raise a ruckus in the nation’s capital.  There are purportedly hundreds of thousands involved, perhaps millions, and some have mentioned arresting members of Congress.  Truth be told, I suspect they’d like to say the same of the President, but don’t dare for fear of the Secret Service.  Either way, I can almost bet dollars to donuts that Obama will un-ass the White House as the bikes and trucks roll into town, perhaps going to Florida for another golf outing or off to Las Vegas despite his own cautionary note about traveling there during his first few weeks in office in early 2009.  Either way, I don’t expect we’ll see much of him in DC at that time.  He and his handlers would never permit him to remain in town with such “riff-raff.”  Besides, if things get out-of-hand, he’ll need to be in a position to strike back.  Hard.

What many Americans may be on the cusp of grasping, perhaps too late, is that Barack Obama really isn’t just another politician.  He’s not Bill Clinton, and he won’t stick his moistened finger in the air to discover the direction of the political winds.  He’s every bit as committed as any jihadist, and similarly convicted of his ultimate victory over the “infidels,” in this case: Americans.  His inner circle is similarly fanatical, and the proof lies in the fact of these obvious attacks on American values.  If he had been listening to political advisers of the typical DC variety, he would not have permitted these incidents because they’re bad politics, as demonstrated by his dramatic decline in job-approval polling numbers over the last week.  The fact that he’s no longer worried enough about politics to do the politically expedient things, or at least avoid the obvious political pitfalls should demonstrate to any observer that this guy is on some kind of a count-down.  He’s like the suicide-bomber holding off the cops because he’s waiting for the timer to expire and the bomb to blow.  He’s hoping his non-negotiating negotiations buy him the time he needs before too many realize what he’s doing.  He’s gambling that you will continue to think he’s an ordinary scum-bag politician, rather than a committed, ideology-driven suicide bomber who is about to detonate your world.  You, Republicans, and not a few in the press continue to assume he’ll come around in due course, which is why he continues to throw these bones of “I’m willing to negotiate” but never does.

It’s the same tactic the jihadists used on 9/11 to immobilize the passengers on the jet-liners.  Only those on Flight 93 figured it out in advance of the end, making a heroic effort to stop the hijackers.  On the first three airliners, passengers knew they were being held by terrorists, but they naively thought there was a negotiation to be had.  The hijackers even played upon this thinking, telling them they would return to the airport until their demands were met.  They couldn’t afford their victims discovering their true aims.  They knew that once the passengers discovered it was fight and perhaps die, or do nothing and surely die, there would be a battle.  Only the people on Flight 93 figured it out in time to make a difference, with better information and a bit more time on their side.  Obama has taken over the controls of our nation, and he doesn’t intend to negotiate about it.  His impending appointment of inflation-diva Janet Yellen should demonstrate his intentions, as she will continue to devalue the dollar through inflation, on the claim that it will create jobs.  The sooner more Americans begin to realize that we now have a president who is at war with the American people, the American system of government, and the greater set of ideals that is America, the sooner we can responsibly do something about it.  Until then, he gets closer and closer to his target, and too many still believe some negotiation is possible.  This is a president whose minions actually made 800-F(1)UCKYO the phone number for his signature program.  Some of you might think it’s a clever joke in poor taste, but instead,  it’s a statement of his intentions.

Will Americans learn only after he collapses the economy?  Will we learn when he uses his powers to starve Americans and deny them care?  Will we learn when he uses troops against Americans?  Drones?  What is it going to take?  Even if Americans finally catch on, how will they react?  Will they give him the violence he desires, as an excuse for greater violence?  Will they realize that their time is running out and that he must go by legal means?  The situation looks every bit as hopeless from my point of view as it must have seemed for the first passenger to realize too late as the airplane began its descent into New York twelve years ago that something was very wrong, and that it didn’t look like an approach to an airport.  The problem is always the same: Our enemies know they’re at war with us, but we never seem to notice until it’s too late.  Obama knows.  His inner circle knows.  Boehner, McConnell, and most of the Congress are oblivious to the danger.  Sadly, so also are far too many passengers on our national plane.  There will at long last come the refrain, probably once again too late to save us:

“Let’s roll.”

By then, we may have been rolled.

Obamahu Akbar!
