Ooobie on Everything

Take a Walk on the Dark Side

Trump finally has caved to incessant pressure and bile from the left and destructive obstructionism from the GOP nabobs and is moving to the dark side for succor. He wants action and the only group in Congress willing to accommodate him are Democrats. For a price. The price apparently is to do everything the Democrats want, while shafting his voting base. His readiness to accede has earned him high praise from the Trump Haters, who want to see more such suicidal acts from the president, and pure fury from his base. The irony is that the Trump Haters will manage to use Trump’s capitulation against him before all is said and done. (“A man without principles!” and who can object?)

Trump’s latest perfidy is the betrayal on immigration. Who wants to send these wonderful people home? he asks us. My answer is I would, Mr. President. At some point the US has to convey vividly that it will enforce its border by saying no to the legalization of those who have come here illegally. Our government doesn’t know the difference between legal and illegal as far as I can tell. Our failure to articulate that difference has given an opening to groups like La Raza to erase the distinction entirely and assert a right for the illegals to live here, work here and even vote here (and vote they do).

Trump’s deal with Nancy and Chuck was a dirty one. It was done not only out of spite against Ryan and McConnell and all the other GOP elitists, but of course, out of conviction as conveyed to him by Ivanka and Jared. In return he took what the Dems offered, vague promises of support for future border security measures, the same old, same old. And Trump cavalierly tells us that the wall thing — it is nothing but patching up holes in whatever useless contrivances we have erected at present. The other wall thing, the one that actually is built and secures our border, that wall is in the future somewhere and apparently still at the mercy of the Democrats.

Trump seems to believe his own hype that we’d forgive him even if he shot a man while walking down Fifth Avenue. Here’s a news flash: I won’t. And for me his imperious action on DACA and his back-door deals are the equivalent of cold-blooded murder.

Instead of trying to relaunch as a fervent DACA supporter, Trump should be calling out the chest-thumping Latino governments for refusing to welcome home and assist these brilliant, good, talented, persecuted and saintly youths. These “kids,” many of them, are now adults, having been shipped out of Mexico wholesale in an earlier immigration inundation with the encouragement of one corrupt Mexican government or another. Today many have the skills or education that will enable them not only to function, but succeed in their home country. They already speak the lingo, they know the culture, and their presence will bolster Mexico’s middle class as a whole. Mexico could do with a good dose of middle class conscience and work ethic. If I were Trump, I’d offer assistance for the relocation of these people in their home countries, whether Mexico or Peru. I applaud the growing number of “Dreamers” who have come to the same conclusion. Trump should be on this, but his governance so far lacks imagination and direction.

What galls most, of course, is the lack of honor Trump is showing. I’m tired of policy decisions based on his mood or his umbrage level and not on practicalities and realities. I say that even knowing that the GOP Congress deserves the treatment it is getting for being obstructionist and unproductive to an extreme, squandering its few remaining moments of “total power” to do nothing at all. But Trump made promises, not a lot but very specific ones, and on the basis of those promises he won his election. Immigration reform and a wall were one promise, and a  new direction in US foreign policy away from interventionism and regime change and toward constructive cooperation was another.

Instead of mending fences with Russia, Trump now thumbs his nose at the country and its leader. Why? Because each new senseless act to insult Russia or “punish it” gets the anti-Trump maniacs briefly, for one instant, off his back. There seems to be little consideration given to the wider implications of his actions and policies; everything is transitory and reactive. In Syria, after calling off CIA assistance to an assorted group of terrorists, Trump has given his blessings to continued meddling. Having failed to stop the Syrian government, with Russian military assistance, from reasserting control over wider and wider areas of the country, now we are seeking to carve off a piece of the country to create a state of Kurdistan that some, and especially the Turks, see as a threat to their own security.

Meanwhile, over at State, Tillerson is being advised by the same nincompoops who advised Obama. The USG expelled Russian diplomats for alleged intervention in US politics. This led to a retaliatory expulsion of many, many more US diplomats from Russia (and don’t you wonder why we have so many there?). The State Department judged Russia’s action “unwarranted” and tore up the Vienna Diplomatic Convention in response. The FBI used Gestapo tactics against Russian diplomats in San Francisco, where the latter were given just 48 hours to vacate their homes so that they could be searched top to bottom. The Consulate was given similar treatment in the wake of its ordered closure, and the smoke from the chimneys indicated the frenzied destruction of protected diplomatic communications to prevent them from becoming FBI toilet paper. Agents also seized Russian-owned properties used as recreation for their diplomats and staff. This is behavior even the KGB didn’t exhibit in the USSR — they at least had the decency to search our apartments when we were gone, without all the drama and terror. And when the US Embassy once suffered a fire during the Cold War years, the US was very concerned about even Soviet firemen entering the building! Where will it all end?

So there stands Donald Trump, angry at everybody in the whole world and determined to get something done, no matter how traitorous or counterproductive or dangerous it is. He is being guided by people who step by step are teaching him that wrong decisions beget a negative response from the Dark State, and right decisions get praised. Most importantly, by not caring what he gets, he can make deals day and night with the Democrats.

 

 


Trump Sucks Up to Mad Man McCain

Let me open with this announcement: I don’t believe that Assad (much less Russia) carried out a chemical weapons (cw) attack in Syria. This was an act of provocation, with or without US involvement, that was carefully calculated to draw the response it did. I believe that this action was based on a judgment that Trump was a foreign affairs neophyte whom his domestic and other foes could push to a rash and poorly considered action to prove his boasts of toughness and his leadership. Faced with an endless and ugly barrage of fake news and false accusations, he fell for whatever he was being sold and grabbed the chance to assert himself as president.

This latest US violation of international law happened only days after the announcement by Trump’s highest reps that unseating Assad was not our primary goal in Syria. We wanted only to defeat ISIS and the jihadists. I thought, sanity prevails. But John McCain was beside himself, or outside himself, or wherever people beyond all utility hang out. I’ve heard he flew to Syria to consult with his tiny proxy army. If so, who knows what wise advice this old white guy gave to those “rebels” living in a complex of tunnels in the side of a mountain. All we know is soon afterwards, an attack by the Syrian Air Force occurred at the same time chemical weapons were released on the ground. (The US insists it was aerial release, but as former Ambassador to Syria Peter Ford said, “[there is] “no proof that the cause of the explosion was what they said it was” and that for Assad such an attack would be “totally self-defeating.”

Here’s what I do believe: Trump, tough guy in business, doesn’t have the political judgement of gravel outside of an appeal to the voters. He should have hung tight and continued to reject the Russian Fairy Tale in which the Witch, Vladimir Putin, gets the innocents (DNC and Clinton Campaign) into his ovens and then serves up Trump; he should have fought those who think the Russian Bogeyman can cover up the crimes of our political class. Instead we have had the recusal of Sessions (innocent of any crime or misbehavior whatsoever and with no earthly interest in helping Russia); the recusal of Nunes who revealed the heinous surveillance by Obama of political opponents; the removal of Bannon from the NSC; and the promise to work with the Dems to get some piece of crap supposedly better than the current piece of crap called Obamacare. Trump obviously isn’t getting politics. And frankly, I’m not getting him, either.

And now this incredible blunder and horrible crime. A nation not at war with the US, not even posing a threat to the US, is once again being assaulted by the United States. Why? I’ll venture this. Because Trump is getting all shook up over the assault he is being subjected to by our own Commies. He can’t fight internal enemies and external enemies, too, and external is easier. Obama promised to honor an idiotic red line, so Trump will make good on the promise. Precisely as his political enemies calculated. And now he gets his reward, in Pavlovian style, which is CNN opining that he’s finally president. All it took was the start of WWIII.

Trump would never erect a building without all the facts about the job. So how could it be that he committed an act of war on the basis of an unproven claim of responsibility? How could he fall for such a ruse by the enemy? If we end up at war with Russia, and China and Iran, will anybody remember it was the Democrats pushing him there?

But hold on. Let’s take a closer look and offer information on Syria from other sources that the USG will not give you.

“Russia’s defence ministry has argued that Syrian planes were destroying chemical weapons, not deploying them, and said the airstrikes targeted a rebel storage depot for toxins.”

Absurd, say the Americans.

“Khan Sheikhoun, where the attack happened was a hewn mountain with tunnels and impenetrable bunkers. Definitely a major hiding place for manufacturing weapon supplies for the Islamist rebels on a major scale. It is a “warehouse used to both produce and store shells containing toxic gas” as Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov said.”

Why aren’t the western media showing the photos that make clear this attack was on a military target, not a simple village living peacefully? And why is nobody looking at the opposition? Here is what UN rep Carla del Ponte said in 2013 about the results of the UN investigation into the use of cw in specific attacks in Syria:

Ms Del Ponte, a former Swiss attorney-general and prosecutor with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), did not rule out the possibility that troops loyal to President Bashar al-Assad might also have used chemical weapons, but said further investigation was needed. “I was a little bit stupefied by the first indications we got… they were about the use of nerve gas by the opposition,” she said.

Ms. del Ponte’s seasoned judgment was spurned by “most western governments” who insisted it was all the work of the Assad government. The final report laid all the attacks at the government’s doorstep by insinuation without actually having the evidence to do so, as it admitted.

Today’s America seems to be hurtling toward some apocalyptic scenario of war abroad and at home. So far I lack any confidence that Trump will hold the line on his campaign promises for a new American foreign policy. So far it looks like he is so desperate to be loved that he plays the eager sap for the warmongers and the military-industrial complex. So far, I’m concerned he is going to take us to the brink of a massive conflict. Russia now and urgently is going to seriously beef up Syrian air defense systems with Russia’s latest hardware and technology, so the next time a jet flies over a Syrian airbase they will probably come down in flames. Then what will happen?


McCarthyism Lives

Joe McCarthy only found 205 spies in the State Department. Imagine that, and all the hysteria surrounding the claim. Quite recently, nine hundred State Department “professionals” signed a dissent channel message that was pretty clearly coordinated with the media for maximum impact. It was an act of political defiance against the president and his supporters among the US public.

But onward to other traitors. There are of late a few serious commentators who are trying to focus public attention on the swelling sociopathic intolerance in the US. This McCarthyism is exercised in its current incarnation by the left, not the right, which only goes to prove the dictum that the extreme left and extreme right are identical in all ugly essentials. Such experts in Russian and US-Russian affairs as Dr. Stephen F. Cohen of NYU are trying to call attention to the dangers of this intolerance, which is expressed in ostracism of and sometimes violence against anybody not on board with the meme that Russia is an enemy of America. They are trying to swamp the airwaves with the idea that Russia in collusion with Trump was responsible for Hillary Clinton’s appalling loss. Cohen disarticulates their allegations brilliantly in his discourses, but the bottom line is: no evidence to prove charges that appear to be politically motivated. He sees the relentless campaign of half-truths and lies as destructive of US-Russian relations and an effort to impede any improvement. He concludes that these goals are part of the Democrat game plan. I myself have never experienced such a wave of hysteria among a public agitated by the propagandists (hence agit-prop). Obama calls these people community organizers and sees himself as the King of All Community Organizers. Their goal: to deliberately undermine the government and remove the sitting president from office. To replace said president with a nominee of the Deep State and its financiers.

In their battle to take the White House, the left long ago sacrificed truth. Truth is whatever serves their crusade for permanent power and global socialism. The Russian card was planted before the Obama Administration left the premises, likely as an ace in the hole, a tasty bit of blackmail against what the planters thought would be be a Republican minority. When the US voters shafted the Democrat party, the Russia ploy took on major importance as a red herring leading the public to focus not on the corrupt Dems and their corrupt candidate as the cause of defeat, but on a treacherous Trump somehow in bed with the Russians. The Dems operate on nearly one hundred percent supposition and assumption. Recall that the first document to kick off the campaign, surfaced by Deep State agent John Brennan, was an “intelligence assessment,” shorthand for this is a result of brain-storming without actual evidence or only bits and bobs of evidence. (See “Intelligence Assessment and Unpredictability” at https://sourcesandmethods.blogspot.com/2014/04/intelligence-assessment-and.html). A few members of the intelligence community came out and gave their blessings to the story, although not all were equally enthusiastic about it. And nobody offered evidence, instead falling back on the old trust us. Long time intel folks were certainly not convinced, no doubt remembering story lines from the past. And our professional diplomats such as Jack Matlock and political ambassadors such as the anti-Putin Michael McFaul are not convinced either. They and the rest of us in this vast field of “Russology” don’t think the Russians are amateurs who leave giant clues around to track their activity. Our own government doesn’t leave tracks, either, and you can ask Angela Merkel about that. So unless we get something substantive as proof, we have to hold onto our doubts.

This began, of course, as a domestic operation from the defeated Democrats. Guys like Podesta and the cheat Donna Brazile had to allay the wrath of the donors, who spent three times as much to lose as Trump did to win. But the diversion went so well, with the public so ready to believe that the Russians were behind all the upset, that they began to trot Russia out as an excuse for everything and as an all-purpose weapon to bludgeon the president to death. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and the Dems socialist brethren in Europe are now using the same scare tactic to explain their own political misfortunes.

But wait. We now know — don’t we? — that the CIA has the capacity to pretend to be Papa Bear, Mama Bear and Baby Bear, hacking and leaving a message “from Russia with love.” I am now wondering: if there really were hacks of European institutions, and not just fevered European imaginations, could the hackers be the CIA? How terribly convenient, that just as the CIA and its feckless intel cohorts were claiming the Russians have hacked all European elections, there is evidence of a hack of all European governments! Talk about proof. It’s like the USG having a printing press for money: it never runs out. That’s the CIA. The Lie Factory. (And hey. I have friends in the CIA utterly beyond reproach — but they don’t run the shop.)

And how about Jeff Sessions? The allegations (and virtually all headlines) suggest Sessions had “meetings” with Russian Ambassador Kislyak, implying some wrong-doing. But in fact he only had one meeting with the Ambassador, in his Capitol Hill office as a high-ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. What Kislyak was looking for other than to make a contact with someone he knew had influence in the Trump camp we do not know and will not know unless the CIA is now into mind-reading. Sessions did not meet him as a Trump surrogate, but as a US Senator and he did not discuss campaign business or Russian “assistance” to said campaign. Sessions also bumped into the Ambassador among many others at a cocktail during the Republican National Convention. And by the way, as an example of how the Dems play this, they also propose that the absence of Kislyak at their own convention showed his favoritism toward Trump and bolsters their claim Trump is a traitor sucking up to Russian intelligence agents. On the other hand, the DNC convention took place only a couple of weeks after DNC staffer and Sanders supporter Seth Rich was murdered without any known reason on a DC street, and just as the Wikileaks information on Dem corruption was pouring out to the world. And of course the private security firm that allowed the DNC leak in the first place was claiming “the Russians did it!” Can’t blame Kislyak for staying home.

So here we are in the grip of a new wave of McCarthyism and the irony is that it is the left who are in charge of the campaign. And the hearth and home of the traitorous left is exactly where Joe McCarthy said it was, in Hollywood and New York, the intellectuals who move the actors’ and actresses’ lips to sell their ideology. They are offspring of the men and women McCarthy accused of being a Fifth Column. Now instead of scrounging for another job after their exposure as anti-Americans, they brazenly crawl out from under their rocks, waving their communist banners, raging to shut down ideas and debate across our society. In between snorts.

They demonize the President and his supporters for having the wrong ideas. They want to tar Trump as the  man elected by Moscow. Put these two streams of thought together and they spell treason; they spell evil; they spell Hitler. And, by the way, they spell — if the Dems succeed — “overthrow of an elected US government.” The Democrats are trying to set up boundaries for free speech and free association. They are declaring the Russians “off limits” in exactly the same way the Soviet officials declared to their citizens that America was “off limits,” and for the same reason. If you can’t sell your ideas in free competition, shut down the competition. They are declaring that anybody who likes Russia is a traitor, anybody who speaks to Russians even casually is a felon, anybody who admires Putin’s leadership skills is an…Alger Hiss (another left-wing favorite!).

And that’s today. Maybe tomorrow they will love Russia, and there will be a new enemy to slay. Truth is relative, baby.

And while the Dems have their reasons to do this to Trump, others in the GOP are complicit in his attempted political assassination. What they object to is that Trump has dared to turn US official attitudes toward Russia since the Cold War on their heads. Instead of the obsolete concept of encircling and containing Russia — a theory that had its glorious moment in the post-WW II world — he wants to treat Russia as we would any other country, based on the facts and not preconceived notions. He doesn’t have an axe to grind, and so the left grinds theirs all the harder. And the agents of the military-industrial complex grind away, too.

Now it turns out, per the President, that the intel services had his phones in Trump Tower wire-tapped before the election. Collecting information. Hoping to collect dirt. Really hoping to catch treason. (Yes, Virginia, there are crazy people.) I heard Geraldo Rivera abasing himself by trying to excuse this inexcusable act and shame on him. We are in such dangerous waters. And I think by now people are catching on.


Sedition and treason stalk America

I watch astounded at the audacity of ignorant thugs hired by the left wreaking havoc on our nation. They are the paid hounds of hell, loosed on our society to force confrontation between the Marxist-Leninists (aka socialists) and the deplorables, also known as right-wingers, Nazis, neo-Nazis, fascists, and so on. (Did you ever notice how communists is never a dirty word for these guys?) I see that the unhinged Sarah Silverman became terrified by the neo-Nazi symbols painted all over New York. Those were, of course, utility markings that actually bore very little resemblance to a swastika. A woman contemptuous of Israel on a daily basis, she used her Jewish card to excuse her stupidity. Everything, including the tracks of slalom skiers, reminds her of swastikas, like the hiss of a snake is ingrained in a bird’s brain. Another tweeter skewered her stupidity with a series of tweets featuring “neo-Nazis” (utility workers) doing various neo-Nazi things, like raising the Iron Cross (a utility pole) that bore an obvious resemblance to “T” for Trump. He’s funny. She’s just, well, stupid.

Let’s be frank. There is a paid and coordinated effort to create public hysteria (the Russian menace; the Nazi regime) in order to feed approval for acts of subversion and treason against an elected president and the USG. They want to bring down Trump, and are happy to tear down the Constitution, individual rights and public order to do so. I worked for years for the USG, as did my husband. I have never seen this kind of open sabotage by people paid out of public funds. There was always a Democrat preference, but never the deliberate undermining of superiors. This is scary and shameful. This is unprecedented. These people want permanent power and we are the mote in their eye.

Regime change has come home to roost. You better believe all those who suffered it at our hands are cheering. They’re scared, but they’re cheering. The hand of God and all that.

Trump has to move much more rapidly to remove removable officials suspected of being opposition activists, what we should rightly call moles and saboteurs. It isn’t enough to take out the top political appointees, he needs to dig deeper into the hierarchy and start rooting out those who have violated their oath of neutrality. The bureaucracy will otherwise bury him.

Another issue: the Russophobia. The degree of hysterical coverage of Russia has surpassed anything I have ever seen, which includes the entire Cold War. It is not a coincidence that this rise in public fear happens months after the USG funded a major program (under Obama) to counter Russian propaganda with US propaganda aimed at Russia. There was even a press conference to announce the start of this Big Lie program. And Russia is such an easy sap to set up as the Arch-Enemy of America. Only problem is this: today’s America is spelled “Amerika.” The people pressing the anti-Russian line are either insane (McCain) or uninformed, or making big money on our mounting military aggression against Russia (the military-industrial et al complex). Then there is the Democrat Fifth Column. The anti-Russian crusade was triggered by the contempt heaped on Hillary Clinton by Putin, who much preferred the pragmatic anti-regime change Trump to the bellicose airhead who thought she was born to lead the world. Much like Obama, but less successful.

This is sheer madness. Furthermore, it is being promoted, whipped up, by our intelligence agencies who nevertheless fail to provide us any proof. So much of this slop they are serving up is pure lurid imagination, like the slimy story sold to his business patrons by the ex-spy (and now we know why he is an ex-spy) Steele. Real intelligence analysts scoff at the entire “Russia hacked the DNC and Podesta!” story. There isn’t a shred of credible proof that was ever presented; the original source of this dope was some shadowy character on the black side of the CIA; the FBI never examined the DNC servers. They took the word of some private company, and used this to spin out a fantasy. It is repugnant. Our intelligence services are corrupted and seriously.

The two memes, that Russia is a major threat to the world and that they stole the US election for the evil Donald Trump, could bring an end to our system of government. We have reached a point where the rotten brats brought up in our indoctrination camps, aka public education, think a one-party dictatorship is a good thing, but only if they are it. Otherwise, “by any means necessary.”

Here is what I want to see. I want to see the immigration raids continue relentlessly. I want to see the leakers tracked down and arrested and held without bail pending trial. I want an investigation of John Brennan and Mike Morell. I want an investigation into Soros funding of the rampant violence. I want both the Clinton server crimes and the Clinton Foundation crimes investigated. And I want to see the back of the Clintons (despite those ugly big saggy asses).

I usually have been a few years ahead of the curve in my predictions, although this year is a real drag on my average. But I’ll venture this. We are headed into a deliberately provoked civil war. Prepare for it.

For Christ’s sake, the Preppers were right.

 

 

 


Rogues in the Rogue State

He left out, “we lie.”

There are many people in this world who are celebrating as our country collapses around us, egged on toward civil war by the far left that now controls the Democrat party and most of our youth through the educational system. These proud socialists were deprived of what they think they deserved, and know they wanted — the election of that crook Hillary Clinton. They wanted and were thwarted from having enough time in power to change the whole US landscape and make it the new USSR. This transformation was to have been Obama’s real legacy. The Dems didn’t care if Clinton was a monstrosity of corruption, the voice of Goldman Sachs “for eight years,” dressed for free by Ralph Lauren, a hateful greedy woman who despised almost everybody and certainly Barack Obama, a manipulator and liar extraordinaire. So what if she was the dread One Percent? So what if she was selling US foreign policy? She was one of the People, much like  Princess Diana. She would do what the People needed done for them. She would move forward the Obama legacy. She would punish the Deplorables in first order. Reeducation. Deportation. Execution. Ridicule.

One Party. One State. One Mind. Heavenly images were wafting around in the marijuana fumes when, kaboom, reality smacked the brats right in their smug, rich faces, or smug poor ones (the latter being by far the majority and the ones supposedly helped by the policies of the former). And now the grief-stricken, many would say maniacal, losers, having rolled around on the floor, having broken up many a political event with their tantrums and screams of fury, and having held their breath until they were blue in the face and NOBODY CARED — these miserable spawn are going to make us sorry.

They’re going to make us sorry by setting up a means of never again allowing a day to go by without casting doubt at home and abroad about America’s…tenability. They will do this through select intelligence agencies and what we formerly called, tongue-in-cheek, mainstream media, a non-stop barrage of scandals directly involving Trump. Trump being handed stolen election by Putin. Trump romping with whores, Trump romping with Putin, and Trump’s and Putin’s RUSSIAN WHORES PISSING ON OBAMA AND BUBBA’s love sack in Moscow! The more salacious details came thanks to a British ex-spy named Steele, who initially offered his claims to the Never Trumpers and likely John McCain, who in fact went flying off, little legs pumping, to give them to his dear friend Comey. The FBI inexplicably added that piece of absolutely unverified and unlikely “raw intelligence” to their report on Russian hacking, and then somehow it was leaked to the press, who amazingly ran with the story regardless of its lack of credentials. BuzzFeed said it wanted to “Let the public decide.” What idiots. FBI dossiers on innocent and guilty all contain massive amounts of rumors, malice and innuendos, supplied by your office mates, ex-spouses, and neighbors, which is why the files are not open to the public, which is not allowed “to decide.”

Mr. Steele obviously was passing off literary trash as intel to rich western businesses wanting to trade with Russia, when he could have been making millions in Hollywood’s light porn industry. Instead, he is now in hiding. It adds a nice Jason Bourne-ish touch to the CIA ruse. The rumor is that the Brit thinks Putin will assassinate him. But personally, I think the lawyers and his clients are who he’s hiding from.

As another bit of bile, the Dems, also referred to as the “Disloyal Opposition,” are going after the FBI director, the OTHER reason Hillary Clinton turned up such a huge loser. The Dems will do as much damage to Comey as possible in the hope he will do the “patriotic” thing and resign or commit suicide from shame (à la Vince Foster). At a minimum, they can cook up an “impeachment” campaign that will dog Comey until the end of his term. This is nuts, since I too wanted to give Comey a kick in the ass for helping Hillary Clinton. How could both sides think Comey was against us?

(An aside: how on earth can the FBI seriously claim all these things relating to a hack of DNC servers when it was denied direct access to the DNC’s compromised servers? That was where all the conspiracy theory started, with claims from a private company that were never verified by any intelligence agency through direct examination. All the rest of the accusations spring from the initial “conclusion” that Russia hacked the DNC. As far as I’m concerned, it isn’t proven. Nothing they are claiming is proven. And worst of all it smells like special ops, black ops, lies and misdirection.)

So what is the overall picture? At home, the Dems have passed from mere annoyance with Wikileaks revelations (“recycled rumors that aren’t impacting Hillary’s polling numbers or her chances to be the next US president”) to claiming these revelations threw the election and were stolen and made public by none other than Arch Villain Vlad Putin. Everything to prove it can be found on the dark side of the CIA, which means it’s too secret for Americans to see.

Even worse, now we’re sending quite large troop contingents to Russia’s border, which is called “Poland’s border” in NATO-land. This is window-dressing to help the stupid American public realize how imperiled we are by ONE MAN — us and all the Europeans too.

And the end result — you can hear it starting already, only less tentative than ever: Donald Trump is not a legitimate president. Any action to keep him from the White House is justified.

Let me put it on the record here: if somebody tries to assassinate Trump, I’d put all of Hollywood under arrest. And then I’d build that wall going up around a house in Kalorama a little higher.

 

 


America, the Ridiculous

I write while the US of A is in mid-throes of anti-Russian madness. Russia, if the increasingly demented members of the US politocracy are to be believed, is the cause of every ill in the United States and the entire rest of the world that is not friends with VLADIMIR PUTIN (cue: Jaws music). The Russians caused Brexit, which nobody tumbled to until after the Russians got Donald Trump elected to the presidency, when the scales fell from their eyes and they saw pretty  much everywhere the hand of Satan, aka Vlad. The wicked Russian released ill-gotten information snatched (supposedly) straight from the Dems themselves. The stolen goods were rich with evidence of corruption and wrongdoing, ethnic contempt and contempt for Americans — and not one word of it was ever denied. But the culprit isn’t the corrupt nasty folks led by Hillary and Bill Clinton. No, the culprit is, of course, Russia. How dare Russia lift the veil on all that crime? If indeed Russia had anything to do with it, and there is precious little evidence of this claim.

This is the last act from the Theater of Brattiness best exemplified by its icon and champion, a man from nowhere with a lot of sly self-promotion but not a shred of depth or wisdom. He was the ultimate empty suit kept afloat by ego. I imagine he sails off (not too far! Kalorama!) to billions paid into a variety of secret accounts by such as Soros and Buffett. Maybe I’m wrong! Maybe I’m the only one who thinks he was a robot paid for by the elite to push globalization and even more unimaginable wealth for the unimaginably wealthy.

But by the way, even if we all know that the latest bit of buffoonery — the explusion of 35 Russian secret operatives and adding some more Russian institutions to the sanctions list — can be easily reversed by Trump (and should be), it all leaves a very nasty taste in Russian mouths. In particular as the USG once again fails to provide evidence to support very tendentious claims of Russian interference in foreign elections, and US elections at that. The US itself of course has carried out and continues to carry out dirty ops to influence foreign elections, up to and including illegal wars (aka “bombing campaigns”). Just ask a Ukrainian, any Latin American, an Iraqi, maybe a Libyan. So from the Russian point of view, it’s just more US bullshit ordered by the Clown Brigade.

From my point of view, as well. First of all, we have the fact that the indictment against Russia and against Putin himself appears to have sprung full-blown from the forehead of the CIA. This US Temple of Lies has concocted more false stories than all the top tabloids combined. And fantasies concocted not only for distribution abroad, or just to the US public at large. They concoct false stories for their own employees, by funneling lies from the operations side to the analytical side, backed up by “highly credible source” gold stars. Then their own analysts churn out finished analysis coming to exactly the right conclusion for getting policy action from State and other brain-dead agencies, as the CIA would think and speak of them.

So, here is the way it is: with no new information, unless it might be a suddenly discovered CIA asset with the very information they were seeking, the CIA reconsiders earlier conclusions, made when it was assumed the US public was going to hail the Queen. Back then, the intel community concluded that the Russians could not be proven to have been the hackers of the DNC or Podesta. They didn’t even mention Wikileaks. But suddenly the CIA believes it does in fact have the evidence, right there before one’s eyes, abracadabra. Now we know practically the patronymics of the hackers, where they come from, who was behind them, and what that Master of the Game was aiming to do. The CIA issued two photos of guys who look mushroomy enough for the technogeek world, but I’m not sure it convinces me of anything other than that. The false analysis grounded in false facts is shared with all the other agencies, some of them notorious dupes with the analytical skill of gravel, and others much sharper if not always ethical. The latter would include the FBI, which wasn’t buying the CIA story until, I imagine, gobs of pressure came down on them. (Here’s a suspicion: that the polit kommisars at CIA felt justified in a made-up story helpful to the Democrats because in their fevered imagination Comey and arch-enemy FBI were on Trump’s side and cost the Dems the election. Excuse me while I cough up a hair-ball.) Both Wikileaks and the self-identified intermediary between the DNC and Wikileaks deny all such charges, but what do they know? Obviously they are in on it with Vlad and the Reds.

And of course now we have the response to Congressional and public demands for the evidence behind the anti-Russian actions by the US president. What  has been provided is a much condensed version of far denser bull-shit that offers no substantial evidence of Russian hacking, much less a link to Wikileaks. Most damning of all, it is prefaced with a disclaimer that essentially says, nobody in the intelligence community believes a word of this malarkey and we’re not taking the fall for it, so read it at your own peril.

Meanwhile, Vlad the Impaler is having a merry old Christmas and New Year’s. He is so well-seated internationally that he can afford to scoff at the expulsion of Russian diplomats and hold his retaliatory hand pending arrival of a grown-up at the White House. He even invited US diplomatic children to a wonderful Christmas celebration party at the Kremlin. But he knows the USG won’t allow those little kids to attend, it would be a rejection of Obama’s snit. So one day instead of someone saying, “when I was little I went to a Kremlin Christmas party and met the president of Russia!” — they will say “I didn’t go to the Kremlin Christmas party or meet the president of Russia.”

It is good that the days of the Dark Emperor (and I’m imbuing that with a spiritual rather than epidermal significance) are drawing to their sickly close, although he threatens to raise his battalions for future battle. But for the moment, let me give thanks to God, again and again, for destroying the plans these people had for us and giving us a small opening to redeem this country.

Happy New Year to all!

 

 


Egad. The Dems really don’t believe in the American Way

still wearing white

still wearing white

Even as I write this, there are frustrated unhappy women on every side, gnashing their teeth and wailing about the defeat of the Wicked Witch or, as she seems to prefer, The Yeti. But defeat isn’t the right word, what these mourners really think is that she wuz robbed. Such horrendous events couldn’t happen in the LaLa Land in which they exist. I guess they never read ancient Greek literature, nor are they on intimate terms with history. But most sane people are getting on with their lives and would appreciate having the noise turned down. They’ve had enough of cry-babies and Hillary suggesting somehow she won but was cheated. No chance.The Left, which is mostly so-called Democrats with a sprinkling of communists and socialists (all the same thing) is not going to allow this horrible democratic system to continue in America if they can help it. If Lena Dunham has to take a poop in front of us every single day she is going to do it just to make your life a misery for not voting for Hillary.

How can it be that those who voted from among the five million illegals allowed, nay invited into California by the Democrats have had their votes in the presidential election stolen by the Electoral College? How can it be that nobody is as mad as the Democrats are that somebody, and who gives a damn who it was, stole all their dirty laundry? What an array of crimes and thuggery and deceit those Podesta emails are. I need to sit down and read through the Wikileaks treasure before they are erased from all existence. From Hillary’s active engagement in decisions to send out people to disrupt Trump rallies, to the Clinton Foundation venality and felonious activity, these emails underlined in red everything we ever thought of the Clinton Clan. Dirty, sneaky, mean and greedy. Therefore, objective number one for the Clinton Society of Anti-Historians is to engage in a little sleight of hand. They want to focus your attention not on the right hand (crimes revealed), but on the left hand, the matter of who uncovered the emails! In this way, they think slyly, the actual crimes can be made to disappear. (Not a chance.)

By now the Democrats have convinced their zombie-like followers that Hillary was a saint of some sort, even though I can confirm that the spinster left were advising each other on Facebook to “just hold your nose and vote for her!” (When I say spinster I don’t just mean the chronically unmarried. I also mean the married who look at the world through the lens of a spinster.) They had the demographics all sewn up, every single  miserable sub-group created from the minds of drug-addled ideology-fueled and sexually deviant leftists to enable a firmer grip on those votes. They had the money, money, money. They had Wall Street and financiers, to whom Hillary had already sworn her open fealty. They had a Machine and it was mean and dirty. Nothing was too low for the Hillary campaign and one of the low-lights was when they aired Trump’s raunchy comments to an aspiring starlet, who know doubt loved a little grabbing if it would only get her ahead of the game, and another no-doubt filthy mouthed Hollywood type. It seemed so obvious to me that the black hat was worn by Hillary, who put private stuff out to all the sweet little girls and boys in America. But no. It was Trump’s sin to be a guy, not hers to be a tattle-tale. In the end, the Dems had everything but the allegiance of the voters.

My advice to Democrats: It is time to stop acting like the uneducated, undemocratic, small-minded mob you lefties are, cry-babies and autocrats who want your way every day and don’t think any punishment is too harsh for your deplorable opponents. I am SO GLAD you dictatorial idiots lost this election that truly, there are no words to express it.

You ought to just get on with whatever it is you guys do while the rest of us work. But you aren’t going to let a crisis that doesn’t even exist go to waste — no, you are going to create a crisis, if you can, and then exploit it. So since you lost fair and square, job number one is to make the public think, hey…NO, WE DID NOT  LOSE FAIR AND SQUARE! Since you were fabulously unsuccessful in even raising a plausible case of fraud and ended up thrown out on your ear in Michigan, what else is left to you? Here’s an idea: blame the Russians. Play that card and play it as hard as you can.

The Russians, thanks to US hysteria, have acquired global stature as Super State: a state totally controlled by one man who actually manipulates every electoral system around the world, and according to the left is now set on unseating Merkel through fake populism! The fact that Merkel invited in a million Arab Muslims of unknown origin has nothing to do with it! Everything negative that one might think of the Democrats (losers, arrogant, liars, cheats, creeps) can be deflected and explained away with a single word: Putin. Who could ask for anything easier to explain your extraordinary fall from grace?

I just watched former Gov. Bill Richardson from New Mexico telling us with a straight face that both the DNC and RNC were hacked, which is only half true. He hastened to add, “I think Trump would have won anyway” — but, but, but and from there the lies abounded. It doesn’t matter to him that he is so distorting the truth that it is a lie, because the truth is highly malleable to a “progressive.” Here’s an example: when the Russians were among the captive peoples of the Left in the Communist USSR, and were being oppressed and suppressed and sent off to the Gulag, the American Left adored Russia. Simply Adored Russia, a la John Reed (Reds). Now the same folks hate, Simply Hate Russia, which is no longer, of course, a socialist/communist (Democrat) party. No longer being idolized, it is suitable fodder as a scapegoat.

The bottom line: these guys would do anything to retain power. All their anti-democratic methods they learned at the knee of Vladimir Lenin, whose victory laid Russia low for almost a century. But the essential evil encapsulated in Marxism still lives in the bosom of the Democrat Party. They still want to be the Vanguard, and they still want the rest of us to be the useful idiots and The Masses. A lie is as good as the truth. The destruction of everything that has sustained us is okay, as long as it serves the ultimate purpose of their own power. If they had had four more years to open our borders to the deluge of uneducated and impoverished Latinos (and whoever else they brought with them), they could have totally subverted our electoral system. If they have to pitch the country into chaos for the right to name the upcoming four Supreme Court justices, not a problem. So don’t expect these fools to shut up. These people could have formed the “civilian army” that Obama so longed for to off-set the despised US military. Count your blessings and put in the ear-plugs.


The Russians Are Coming! The Russians are Coming!

You’ve probably noticed that Russia has taken over the US election, which it is carefully maneuvering from 5000 miles away. In the meantime, the US, which is on a mission to dismantle all existing governments other than its own and replace the offending entities with heavily foreign nerd squads, is unable to adequately protect our voting machines. Fearing that the evil Russians might be even more adept at voter fraud than even the Democrats, the idea has surfaced that we need to turn this all over to Homeland Security. I am sure those guardians of freedom will keep foreign hackers out. I have some doubts about the domestic hackers.

Hey, give me a paper ballot any day. No chads, just a darkened circle to say “this is who I want.”  I knew this computerized voting was going to be a disaster. If I have to change credit cards every six weeks because somebody hacked my bank again, what will we do about a false president? (I mean ANOTHER false president.) I think our useless legislators ought immediately to start working on mechanisms for unseating fraudulently elected presidents, starting with Obama and ex post facto.

Back to Russia. I used to think I was one of a few who noticed that the United States Government and assorted corrupt politicians were invoking Russia’s name altogether too frequently as the source of mischief here at home, forget about abroad. Nothing happens anymore that isn’t secretly the work of the Russians. We have no official confirmation of Russian hacking of the DNC — meaning they have no proof — but the Dems have lied so blatantly and frequently on this matter that it is irrefutable truth now for the average uninformed American. Hillary Clinton is sure nobody hacked her illegal private server, but if they did, it was Russia. And Russia, also known as Vladimir Putin, is doing it to help Trump. Now some Republicans are being hacked and that means, again, that the hackers are Russian and that they are doing this to support the GOP candidate.

I find it far more credible that the Dems have begun their own “retaliatory” campaign and hence the sudden hacking of Republicans. I find it far more credible than believing the Russians are doing it, or doing it without a lot of competition from multiple sources. Similarly: how many people know that the young DNC staffer who backed Bernie Sanders was gunned down for no apparent reason a couple of weeks before the DNC Convention? Or that Wikileaks has offered a 20000 dollar reward for information on that killing? How many people have heard the suggestion that deceased once slipped information to Wikileaks taken from DNC servers? Right, very few. If you asked the average man on the street about who was behind the hackings, you would either get, “I have no idea,” or “It was Russia.”

I once knew an emigré from the Soviet Union who was writing a series of pamphlets to instruct Americans on the evils of the Soviet Union (this was well post-collapse of the USSR) and to assert that the KGB was behind every ill in the West. She was certain that Russia had such power that it was orchestrating the tornadoes in the US, and the hurricanes, and the tsunamis. The Russians, she said, had a missile that drilled down and then veered left or right to get to where it was going on the other side of the world to wreak havoc.

I scoffed at her and finally let the acquaintance lapse on mental health grounds. I feel the same way about these conspiracy nuts. Whoa. What are they smoking and can I get some, too?

The tragedy is that those “lazy Americans” Obama bemoans don’t really know much about Russia outside the Cold War period, and they honestly don’t want to know anything about Russia or most other places not in travel brochures. Obama attributes this ignorance to a lack of vigor and intellectual ability, but I attribute it to utter boredom with the subject matter. In any case, almost all Americans have seen a ton of movies about the Cold War period, so hearing that Russia (aka the Soviet Union) is the bad guy makes perfect sense.

The problem is that if Clinton wins, she walks into the White House with a huge chip on her shoulder toward Putin and Russia and a penchant for throwing her military around. And that should worry all of us.


Vote the War Party! Vote Hillary!

I am largely resigned to all the things that I fear are to come. These start with an effective one-party takeover of the USG, the rewriting of all laws and rules (including those governing changes to the Constitution) to make them ideologically correct, and legislative and judicial branches marching in step with the Executive in foisting on us a State Political Philosophy. The processes already begun by the left will go at a faster pace — from the spread of mandatory unionism to vast State control over the media (including and especially the internet), from mandatory voting to suppression of religious expression. There will be no demurring from the State position, as both the legislature and the judiciary will be firmly under the control of the far left. Ruth Bader Ginsberg could give you a lecture on how “n’sync” the lefties on the Supreme Court are with the world’s progressives. These new justices don’t care if you know they have already decided cases not before them, just as the faux journalists don’t care if you call them propagandists. Biased, and proud of it!

The other worry that I fear will be realized is that a Clinton presidency would lead to heightened conflict and even war with Russia, in Syria certainly and perhaps in Ukraine, as well. The USG has already trained and armed Kiev’s special forces who only recently tried to infiltrate saboteurs into the military facilities in Crimea, in the course of which they lost their lives. The US and Kiev of course denied it all, calling it a provocation by Russia. The incident ratcheted up tensions in eastern Ukraine, with Russia’s proxies fighting the US proxies; and it also expedited Moscow’s delivery of state-of-the-art anti-air systems and other sophisticated military hardware to the peninsula. Like it or not, Russia owns Crimea and within a few short years, it will be a major military port bristling with all sorts of armament and technology. Anybody who plans to wage battle in the Black Sea should be prepared for total war.

Kiev’s provocations, just like those of Georgia, are oil poured on an already volatile situation. And it is this kind of reckless behavior that the US is encouraging and facilitating. (I still think the Georgian president was nudged to take action in S. Ossetia by the American military.) Our course is fraught with danger, but it does not deter the unholy alliance of the neocons and the corrupt Clinton camp in pushing for Ukraine membership in NATO. After all, it was her husband who made the fateful decision to enlarge NATO, why should she not be the one that takes it right to Moscow’s doorstep and over it into war? Expect Mrs. Clinton to deepen US-Ukraine military collaboration in ways that are directly threatening to Russian national security and, as a result, to our own.

In Syria, rumor has it that Madame’s first order of business will be to undertake regime change, Russia be damned. If this is true, we should all take to the streets to make our strenuous disagreement palpable. (But it won’t happen.) Russia is not going to back down even in the face of NATO aggression (and of course there will be no UNSC resolution legitimizing US aggression). Moscow will reinforce its military at Latakia and increase its air sorties. The Syrians have already given Russia use of a second base, and now the Chinese are getting more involved, as well. They will be working overtime to bring under the control of Damascus as great a swath of Syrian territory as possible, bombing anything that moves and that includes Americans. It would then be a shooting war.

Hillary Clinton wants a war. She wants to pull off a victory somewhere, this American cowgirl, that would dwarf anything Obama did. Alas for all of us, the places that are easy to bomb and take over with proxies have already been bombed and taken over. They are the rubble you see strewn across the Middle East. What remains are the nations that created nuclear arsenals precisely to prevent an aggressor from attempting, directly or indirectly, an assault on their sovereignty. Those nations include China and Russia and (probably) Iran, all regional powers that have resisted US dominion and demands. In the real world, one would think, “how can we reconcile our needs and interests so as to avoid war?” But I don’t think Hillary operates in the real world. She operates wherever it is that she communes with Eleanor Roosevelt.

And how could I not mention that weasel-faced jerk Mike Morrell, formerly of the CIA and now a Hillary adviser. (This is a good fit, as both the CIA and Hillary Clinton absolutely require that employees have the ability to lie glibly and sell any story as the truth.) Morell formerly condemned Hillary for such negligence in handling of classified information that he was absolutely certain the illegally-used server had been hacked by multiple sources. Now he thinks she’d be a steady hand at the helm. Of course, here’s what Morell thinks about icing our supposed foes and actual rivals:

“What they need is to have the Russians and Iranians pay a little price,” Morell said. “When we were in Iraq, the Iranians were giving weapons to the Shia militia, who were killing American soldiers, right? The Iranians were making us pay a price. We need to make the Iranians pay a price in Syria. We need to make the Russians pay a price.” Morell said the killing of Russians and Iranians should be undertaken “covertly, so you don’t tell the world about it, you don’t stand up at the Pentagon and say ‘we did this.’ But you make sure they know it in Moscow and Tehran.”

Judge for yourself. Who is a greater danger to continued life on the planet? Donald Trump who wants to collaborate with Russia to defeat ISIS in Syria; who wants to toss that disastrous Utopian fantasy, nation-building, overboard; who thinks that conflict is the last resort, not the first? Or a woman who has surrounded herself with the worst of the war hawks and the military-industrial complex, in which the lackey Morell is but a small cog? The latter group is drooling at the chance to go to war against Russia, and I predict they will try a two-prong approach in both Syria and Ukraine. I think they are incredibly thick and arrogant and I also think they are extremely dangerous. Thanks to the Dems and the GOP elite, both in bed with the war industrialists, we have a military so light and fast that it can destroy anything. What we don’t have is a competent diplomatic corps, a wise or truthful government, or any clue what the hell we are doing. How many countries do we have to destroy and leave destroyed for decades to come before we come to our senses?

Trump needs to push Clinton on her plans for Syria, and ask whether the rumor of a planned January 2017 war against Assad is correct. He needs to press her on her plans for further expansion of NATO. He needs to demand to know what weaponry has been shipped to Ukraine and what training we are providing. He needs to ask if the US military or NATO military are advising Ukraine on its military provocations against Russia. He needs to expose all the corrupt ties between certain Democrats and the Ukrainian US-imposed regime. These are all critical matters and the Psychopathic Liar should not be allowed to skate without warning us what she has up her sleeve.


More drama and excitement than I can bear

It sure is looking difficult for Hillary Clinton to make even the Democrats love her. As far as I can discern, the spine of her fandom is the forever spinster female clump worried about pretty much everything and looking for a safe space with the Queen of Corruption. Go figure. But an awful lot of the increasingly powerful far-left base of the Democrat party hate Hillary Clinton as much as we of the center-right do. I think they’d rather eat horse poop than vote for the self-righteous and vicious Mrs. Clinton, who would stop at nothing to be president of this US of A. (Aside: how much do you think each Clinton thigh is weighing in at that it requires  thousands of dollars of fabric to cover?)

I don’t think this means the left will vote Trump. But some of the more determined, discerning and delinquent of the Dems will vote for Trump, seeing his victory as the only way to bring down the Clinton/Obama machines and open the way for the real socialists, The People. (See Sarandon, Susan.) Many others will stay home or vote for an acceptable ideological alternative, such as Jill Stein. Jill not Hill. The not-Hillary votes hurt Hillary even if they don’t directly help Trump. (And by the way, same holds true for the Northeast Republicans and Trump.)

It’s clear to me that the Democrat party is about to morph into an official socialist party. It isn’t going to happen under Hillary Clinton, who is owned by Wall Street and big finance. As long as the base of that party follows the official script, there will be no change in direction or philosophy. But a defeat in this election engineered by the far left of the party base pretty much guarantees that they will take control. The Clintons know this too. (The Obamas, sly scoundrels, will make themselves icons of this movement. Move over, Sanders.)

To the rebels in the Democrat camp: take a gander at the stuffy old GOP and learn something. Rise up. Punish your party by voting the corrupt oligarchy controlling it out of power, giving YOU a chance to organize and overthrow. Pull out both your Alinksy and Lenin dicta (oops! which is which?) and hone your skills. I’m sure that sooner rather than later you are going to eviscerate the Clinton machine and replace it with that of The People.

Trump is holding firm on his maverick foreign policy stance, in defiance of every hawk and participating member of the military-industrial complex, headquartered in Virginia. (Is it any surprise Virginia is pro-Clinton?) I like it. He can’t be prodded into supporting the gung-ho, get-Russia, rah-rah patriotism of the people enriched from the money generated in US/NATO military adventurism. And he has support from the men and women actually fighting and dying in our endless wars. In that vein, I note that this is another Wall Street Journal obsession: Trump’s challenging of the trans-Atlantic mythology embodied in NATO. The latest idiocy — arising from the very assumption that American voters are nincompoops — is the charge from the corrupt Hillary camp (among which I count the Wall Street Journal) that the Russians are helping Trump by releasing stolen DNC emails that allow American voters see how stinkingly corrupt the Democrat party has become during the Clinton-Obama years. The Dems’ aim is to deflect people from contemplating the rot inside the DNC in favor of quivering at the prospect of a Russia so omnipotent that it has stolen sacred (dirty) information and is now using it to help (gasp) Donald Trump.

And moving to Trump. His press conference on Wednesday was a huge (yuuuuuge) hit. I couldn’t believe it. I was humbled. I thought Trump was a bozo. I was so wrong.

He took Hillary Clinton by the throat and shook her good, like a Jack Russell terrier with a rat. He answered — I mean, ANSWERED, all the questions put by a hostile press. That included those emanating from Katie Couric who has segued in old age from America’s Sweetheart to Extremely Plain But Powerful and Intelligent Reporter Rooting for The People.  We were allowed the spectacle of one in-the-tank reporter after another urging Trump to admit that Putin was intervening on his behalf. Trump never “moved on” from or “evaded” the questions. He answered. No interests in Russia. No contacts with Putin. But he is open to collaborating with Russia to defeat ISIS. ISIS. An acronym the DNC couldn’t pronounce until Trump ridiculed their lapse. (And Hillary prefers the highly deceitful name “radical jihad” — as if there is a moderate Holy War? She still can’t force herself to implicate Islam in the bloodshed and madness that is engulfing us all.)

I especially liked Trump’s demand that the obedient left-wing press ask that Hillary do likewise and take all the hard questions and provide answers, too. It was a very good touché to the self-righteous and boringly One Think journalists who tried to change the focus from a dirty DNC to Putin. It doesn’t work. The average American can’t get past Putin as a kind of Windows Icon for villainy. What they know is that plotting to undo somebody because he’s a Jew is pretty anti-Semitic. And that doesn’t even take into account the Taco Bell comment. Que pendejo.

I thought Trump wouldn’t pivot. I worried about his grasp. But his grasp of the American spirit of discontent is better than mine. We are all sick of being spun and misled and lied to. We are tired of being taken for granted and counted by what is between our legs or the color of our skin or our party affiliation. We want an end to this suffocation by government bureaucracy and Saul Alinsky.

Trump isn’t a Republican. I like that. I am not a Republican anymore either. But we took what was becoming a useless political appendage, and hopefully we can turn this movement into a viable political entity.

God willing.
