In case you wondered

24 Apr

just how stupid the MSM meme of Trump being a Russian stooge is, all you have to do is look at the facts.

We now know that this was a smarmy, self-serving excuse concocted the the LOSER Hillary Clinton within 24 hours of her losing to Trump and then promulgated by the Wormtongue-esque toady MSM. It is amazingly doofy, and backed by not a shred of evidence. Not even a hint of evidence. It is merely Leftist whimpering as they lay curled up on the floor mumbling to themselves. It is an old man yelling at the clouds and screaming at imaginary teens to get off his freakin’ lawn. It is madness.

And when one sees it, one has to wonder if the meds need to be adjusted. At the very least, one backs away very slowly and carefully–no sudden moves…

 

Yeah, the MOAB

killed off a lot of things! Piss-poor leadership is one of them.

Here is the pickle the Palestinians are in:

25 Jan

They have thrown their lot in with American liberals Leftists only to find it a real problem. It is not that the American Left is any less disposed to favor them–quite the opposite. The Left remains quite hostile toward Jews and Israel.

The issue is that the American Left is TOTALLY out of power. No Presidency, no House, no Senate, and no Supreme Court. And huge reductions on the state level. Nothing. The Palestinians have simply chosen a weak and losing horse. The result is an asendent Israel and declining Palestinians. They chose…poorly.

to be a major Trump Effect in this case.

Look, one can whine and moan about Trump, but the proof of the pudding is in the tasting…

Remind me,

09 Jan

just why does the US bankroll the UN? It seems like there could be a better use for the money, but that is far from the main issue for me.

Why is it here? Why can’t it be, for example, in Brussels? Or in China?  Why is it in NYC and why are we a part of it? Sure, all the UN elites like it better in NYC, but Beijing might suit them!

Even if we stayed in the UN, why do we have to host it? Why? I mean, what good does that do us? And why can’t someone else host them now. It’s just hard for me to understand.

Here is a proposal

28 Dec

I would dearly like to see enacted.

It would be a serious shot across the bow. It would very quickly make the point–and an impact. Oh, and the NYC space would also be included in our costs.

If we are to be led by the nose by Senegal and New Zealand, we should at least be required to only foot the same share of the bill as they do.

I think the UN should go pound sand. I don’t know why we lend a patina of legitimacy to it.

a HUGE issue with the EU and it has to do with Italy. I know the article is a little technical for many, so let me sum it up:

Italian banks are failing. Normal government actions to support and buttress the banks are outlawed by the EU. The bridge is sagging, but the rules prevent one from erecting a pylon to shore it up. Depositors are therefore getting hammered. And it will only get worse. So the only way to correct things is to ignore the EU (or leave). This leaving of the EU by anyone else after “Brexit” is the death knell for the EU regime–and maybe just ignoring the rules will do it. Maybe even just serious talk about leaving is enough. Can’t you see the walls are crumbling?

I had thought that the EU could survive if France and Germany stayed, but the whole edifice may be far more precarious than that. “Brexit” may well have just been the leading edge of the wave. If so, we are seeing the demise of the EU. France and Germany will do just fine, but many others won’t come through in current form.

I think it is extremely likely that the EU is a dead man walking. It’s like a game of musical chairs–no one wants to be caught without a seat when the music stops. So there is a real pull to grab a chair as soon as you can–early, if possible. Losing the game by being slow to jump is an existential threat, so the game is “hose down your neighbor.” The goal is to convince your neighbor to stay and then leave yourself! And once that “leave” ethic takes hold, the whole structure collapses in an instant–there is a mad scramble for a chair.

There becomes an almost overwhelming urge to grab a chair early because it means safety for you even though the action itself accelerates the collapse and damages someone else. “Being noble” and “being the victim” are one and the same in this situation. It is the classic “prisoner’s dilemma.” No one wants to be the last one and therefore left without a chair. The problem is that as usual, it is the trusting little guy who really gets hurt.

“Tough Love” for

15 May

Mexico.

Sometimes even a blind squirrel finds a nut! And I think it is a HUGE mistake to think that those who don’t like you never help you or that those who do love you never harm you. I mean, what is the road to Hell paved with? There’s a very good reason that old saw has retained its relevance over hundreds of years.

I think you just do the right thing and let the chips fall where they may. THAT is why character is truly the most important issue with a candidate–if he or she is committed to doing the right things, it all works in the end. Without character you only do what seems expedient at the moment. Wisdom is quite important, too, since your good intentions can be “flipped” to evil outcomes. But good character often encompasses such factors, and doing what is right even when it is hard means that you are far less likely to be “flipped.”

That’s why the Socialist fanatics are such easy pickings–they justify evil means for supposedly good ends. Except those good end never come…

Thank Obama.

His screw-ups have cost a lot of people their lives.

I sometimes hear people saying that foreign policy does not matter, and therefore it’s OK to elect a buffoon like Trump or an evil incompetent like Hillary. All will be fine in the end.

They could not be more wrong.
