The bipartisan interventionists’ jig is just about up, so they damn Mr. Trump

The very best part of the Democratic Convention was the evident panic among party leaders over the clear chance that Donald Trump may  intend to construct a foreign policy grounded in the concept of America First.

Speaker after speaker railed that Trump is inexperienced in world affairs and lacks a coherent strategic view of the world. These allegations, of course, come from a party that gave the American people the foreign-policy ignoramus Barack Obama in 2008 and the always-wrong, Israel-obsessed, and war-loving Hillary Clinton in 2016. As to the Democratic hacks’ charges of incoherence, what, if not incoherent to the point of being moronic, is the Obama-Clinton foreign policy – supported by the Republican establishment — of fighting Islamists while encouraging them to send fighters to North America in the guise of refugees; removing Mubarak and Gadhafi, trying to oust Syria’s al-Asaad, but supporting all other Arab tyrants and at the same moment calling for stability, peace, and democracy in the Arab world; funding the overthrow of the pro-Russia regime in Ukraine and then blaming Russia for starting a new Cold War and crippling her with economic sanctions; pounding the war drums with Russia, while knowing Putin’s panzers would be in Paris in two weeks or less unless the United States initiated an all-out nuclear war on behalf of the infantile Europeans; and building up Shia Iran as a regional power and at the same time calling for more money, men, and blood from our so-called allies in the Sunni world to defeat the Islamic State and al-Qaeda, thereby further strengthening Iran.

Now it is fair to say that no one really knows which way Mr. Trump will jump on any given issue. Of late, he has said things about Israel that sound like he may turn out to be another vile Neocon. His repeated talk about bombing ISIS and AQ to hell, smacks of both a limited acquaintance with the nature of the Islamist foe and continuity with the effete and war-losing U.S. foreign policy Bill Clinton began in 1998. And it is not clear – at least to me – whether his pledge to conduct the much-needed strengthening of U.S. military will include the even more-needed purging of that military’s politically correct leadership, men and women who think their main duty is to protect the enemy’s civilians and that it is okay for them to lose every war they are told to fight.

But there are some important signs that Mr. Trump is armed for bear when it comes to an America First foreign policy. The crocodile tears expended by senior Democrats over Mr. Trump’s resolute unwillingness to adore the false god named NATO is a positive sign. Even a man I respect enormously – Ralph Peters, who is in no way a Democratic hack – has attacked Mr. Trump because he has had the nerve to identify NATO for the rubbish pile it has become. Last week, Colonel Peters, who I tremble to disagree with, called out Mr. Trump for not recognizing that NATO had kept the peace in Europe for more than 60 years, saying he was, as a result, willing to vote, “with disgust”, for Hillary Clinton for president.

With all respect to the estimable Colonel Peters, I think that Mr. Trump knows that it was the magnificently trained and led, and reliably death-dealing U.S. military at the end of World War II, and then the U.S. nuclear deterrent, not NATO, that intimidated the Soviet Union and kept Europeans’ ill-deserved peace. Few NATO members ever spent what they pledged to spend on their militaries during the Cold War. And after the USSR dissolved in 1991 all immediately cut their consistent underspending even more. Why? Because they knew that the U.S. deterrent was still in place – though today badly eroded by Obama and Mrs. Clinton – and that the profligate U.S. bipartisan governing elite was willing to accept their mixture of pro-NATO rhetoric with growing military weakness, obsolescence, and pacifism, and cover for it by increasing the tax burden on Americans to defend 27 NATO countries who refuse to defend themselves. Clearly, Mr. Trump has Europe’s number on this issue. The now-panicked European, Republican, and Democratic elites suspect (a) he intends to put a stop to their scam and (b) the American people will support him on the issue. The Trumpian response to the issue of NATO should be that of the Founders – neutrality and non-intervention. For America, a Europe worth defending no longer exists.

The importance of Trump’s apparent America First plan can again be seen with exquisite clarity in the current media-fueled spat between Trump and the Democrats’ convention speaker Khizr Khan. Mr. Khan spoke to the Democrats and opened by saying that he first wanted to remember all of America’s veterans – a point for which there was nothing but silence from his audience. Mr. Khan also spoke of his son, who was killed in Iraq while serving as a captain in the army, a man for whom Trump would only have praise and call on others to offer the same. Ask yourself, what other presidential candidate in either party has done as much as Trump to materially assist veterans? The answer is of course none, and that answer should be expanded by noting that not only does Trump stand alone on this issue, but the 20 other Republican and Democratic 2016 presidential candidates are all part of the bipartisan governing elite that has knowingly allowed the Veterans Administration to become the callous killer of veterans.

Mr. Khan, after correctly honoring all veterans and his son, disappears into the mists of the Democratic Party’s truly astounding ignorance of the United States. He waves his pocket Constitution at Trump because the latter has said we ought to ban the entry of Muslims until we have identified and controlled the threat posed by those already in the United States. Mr. Khan seems – like his party colleagues, Obama, and Mrs. Clinton – to be unaware that the U.S. Constitution was written to govern and protect the security and liberty only of Americans, it has no legitimate application to foreigners, and certainly poses no legal obstacle to halting immigration from any or all countries if that is want Americans want as their policy. If Mr. Khan was going to wave his Constitution at anyone it ought to have been Obama, who has flooded the United States with unvetted and therefore illegally admitted Muslims, thereby knowingly and substantially increased the domestic Islamic threat.

Mr. Khan also should have known, that while he and we correctly honor and respect his son’s sacrifice in Iraq, his son died uselessly in a war that no president and neither political party has ever wanted to win. Captain Khan did his duty to his countrymen, comrades, and the republic, but his life and the lives and limbs of tens of thousands of other military women and men have been utterly wasted in unnecessary, interventionist wars started unconstitutionally by U.S. presidents, supported by the war-mongering and Israel-loving U.S. Congress and Senate, and imposed on war-opposing Americans by the interventionist unanimity of both party establishments and the media. You and I, Mr. Khan, are also more than a little responsible for you son’s death, and all of the other casualties mentioned above, because we have consistently voted for party leaders who love to start wars, but care about neither winning nor the military lives that are wasted. It is too late to help your son, Mr. Khan, but, by God, it is worth giving Mr. Trump a shot and see if he can save the life of my military-aged son, and the military-aged sons of so many other Americans, by keeping the United States government from starting and/or intervening in wars that are irrelevant to U.S. national security.

And if Mr. Khan was not wrong-headed enough, today (1 August 2016), we have Senator McCain and the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) condemning Trump for defending himself against Mr. Khan’s constitutional ignorance. This is truly and tragically comical. Do the members of the VFW not now that Captain Khan and so many others have died in wars that none of the last four presidents ever intended to win? Do they not recognize that they and Americans generally have been played for fools? That their children have been sent to fight and perish in wars against vastly inferior enemies that their president and senior general officers were quite content to lose, and who then traveled to Arlington to deliver syrupy, pseudo-patriotic, and completely hypocritical eulogies for the fallen service personnel that they killed through their unnecessary interventionism and refusal to attain victory? And, finally, do the VFW members really not know that Senator McCain and his sidekicks Senator Graham, Hillary Clinton, and Michael Bloomberg have been just as responsible as any recent president for sending military men and women to die in unnecessary wars they did not intend to win, and in which they did not care how many U.S, military personnel died as they amateurishly indulged in playing the role of he-men at war.

The bottom line, at least for me, is that with the republic apparently in its economic death throes, Mr. Trump’s America First orientation – if he delivers substance to match his promise — gives America a chance to save itself. It is time to get out of NATO, let the Europeans defend themselves, stop all immigration for ten years, close the border, let all of the Middle East burn to the ground, stop beating the war drums with Russia, and adopt a neutral and non-interventionist foreign policy. We would thereby give America a chance to put its own house in order and rebuilt its ability to defend itself without greedy, worthless, and encumbering allies. Such a tack would also give each party a chance to either purge their leadership of interventionists, warmongers, and Israel-Firsters, or die because they refuse to do so. Only Mr. Trump seems willing to try to make such a win possible for America.

Of the Democratic Convention, a destroyed educational system, and a nominated non-entity

The Democratic Party’s convention twice put a wonderfully bright spotlight on how that party has ruined the American educational system by involving the federal government in education. The convention’s slogan for the first night, for example, was “United Together”, which is a phrase that is as stupidly redundant and it is meaningless. And yet, the party’s apparatus, the delegations from each of the party’s enslaved colonies of minorities, and the 80-percent of the media that has its collective head up Hillary’s derriere thought the slogan was a stroke of genius. “Yes, that’s us,” American teachers, told their students the next day, “we are united together.” I hope that at least one of the little brainwashed urchins had the sense and moxie to ask, “Oh, Teacher, could we be “united apart” or “disunited together”? Surely, such a child would be punished for asking the question – perhaps having to memorize “Socialism for Kids” or write “Saul Alinsky” on the blackboard 500 times.

The second spotlight illuminated – who else? – Barack Obama, the pride of the Ivy League, the darling of the media, and a man who can only be described as ignorant, stupid, or a liar. In his oh-so-superior speech to the convention, Obama said that Hillary Clinton was the most prepared/experienced candidate for the presidency in U.S. history, adding “better than you or me Bill”. Well, Obama was right on one count, he is certainly the least-prepared person ever to be president. Indeed, there probably has never been another American arrogant enough to believe that, with no applicable work experience, no record of meaningful accomplishment, and academic grades so poor they must be hidden, he deserved the presidency simply because he is Black and could count on the Democratic Party to endlessly and mindlessly champion losers, abortionists, felons, the unqualified, the racist, the lawless, the anti-American, and the authoritarian.

By claiming that Hillary Clinton is the most prepared and experienced presidential candidate in U.S. history, Obama proved himself to be either a victim – always his best role – of the brain-crippling American education system that he and his party built, or a liar willing to do anything he can to finish the destruction of America begun by Bill Clinton and now nearly completed by himself. Anyone with even a passing acquaintance with U.S. history would know that just mentioning the names of Washington – the greatest American – both Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Jackson, Polk, Lincoln, Cleveland, Coolidge, both Roosevelts, Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Reagan makes Obama stand out clearly as the devious anti-American liar he truly is. Preparation for the U.S. presidency requires not only a record of hard work, applied patriotism, and experience worthy of a confident and independent-thinking adult, it also requires success in those categories.

The just-mentioned men met those conditions, Hillary Clinton does not. She was a failure as a first lady in the area of healthcare; she abused and ridiculed federal civil servants who did not suit her; and she presided over a White House that appears to have been more or less a brothel. She was a failure as a U.S. Senator from New York, specializing in supporting Israel, thereby ensuring more war and dead Americans; in securing favors and funding for her favorites in the state; and in helping to lead the republic to unending war with Islam by her strong support for the Iraq war. She was an unmitigated failure as Secretary of State, by knowingly lying to Americans in claiming the Arab Spring meant secular democracy was winning in the Islamic world and that the Islamists were defeated; by championing an unnecessary war on Libya that is destabilizing and Islamicizing Africa, and then refusing to provide adequate security for the diplomats, intelligence officers, and military personnel she stuck in that hellhole and then ignored; and by sanctioning sales that gave foreigners control of key U.S. natural resources, foreigners who apparently then contributed to the Clinton Foundation. So Mrs. Clinton fails the first test for presidential preparedness, which is experience accompanied with success in the endeavors undertaken. Her life’s only notable successes have been in achieving continual failure, protecting a sexual-predator husband, and making sure that 60 million unborn Americans have been murdered by the American Medical Association.

As far as the second test, that of demonstrating oneself to be a confident and independent-thinking adult with integrity, Mrs. Clinton is nothing short of a joke as an adult, and an embarrassment to the republic, especially for those young women who need nothing but their own brains and labor to succeed. Mrs. Clinton’s career from college to this week’s nomination has depended on the good offices of men. A few plausible scenes from her life might read as follow. “Oh, they are saying true but nasty things about me,” says Mrs. Clinton, “send James Carville to attack and browbeat them.” “Gosh, they don’t think I know how to handle the economy,” says Mrs. Clinton, “so I will put my husband Bill in charge of it.” “Oh how terrible,” says Mrs. Clinton, “so many people now know that I am a perjurer, traitor, and liar, send out Lanny Davis to defend me.” “You know, without Bill as my husband the party would have abandoned me long ago,” thinks Mrs. Clinton, “so I’ll stay with him, encourage his philandering, and act as his anti-woman protector by verbally attacking and intimidating the women he molests and physically harms.”

A modern, talented. independent-minded, and confident woman? Hardly. Really, Mrs. Clinton is not much more than a dependent female adolescent who needs a man as her surrogate on every occasion she faces a hard problem, a serious challenge, or a truthful attack. Compared to the readiness to be president of, say, Mrs. Abigail Adams, Mrs. Dolley Madison, and Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, Mrs. Hillary Clinton is not much more than a dissembling, man-dependent non-entity, neither prepared for nor worthy of high public office.

Of the attack in Nice, the demise of Europe, and America’s work at home

The attack in Nice, France, on 14 July 2015, has set off another festival of death in Europe, complete with candles, flowers, tears, and handwritten notes. This is the current European generation’s consistently effete and feckless answer to the murderous acts of war inflicted on them by Islamist fighters. It is a tradition good for florists, stationers, candle-makers, and handkerchief producers, but it is merely a source of endless mirth for  the Islamists, and horror for the few adults remaining in the West.

My own response to the attack was to thank God that it was in Europe and not America, and to ponder why in the world the Europeans have not yet hung and then drawn-and-quartered their leaders after nearly two decades of their abject failure to provide adequate national security. Indeed, the European leaders have invited the Islamists who kill, molest, and help bankrupt their citizens to come to Europe not assimilate but to live on the dole and plot attacks, all in the name of furthering the twin calamities so beloved of the EU — and Hillary Clinton and her party — called diversity and multiculturalism.

The depth of the European leaders’ inability to make contact with reality is seen in the well-coifed person of France’s President Hollande, who, even as he bewailed the Islamists’ victorious raid on Nice, was tracking the travel of the French aircraft carrier he sent to the Middle East to further the West’s unnecessary and self-defeating military intervention in an intra-civilization Muslim war which will pit Islam’s two great sects against each other in a war to the death, if only the West would stay out of their way.

If the West does not abstain it will die, and when its eulogy is written, a two-part question will need answering. First, why, since the Cold War’s end, have European and North American political leaders so adamantly believed that they know more about “true” Islam than any Muslim in the world?  Second, why did those leaders think that they could relentlessly interfere politically, culturally, economically, and militarily in Muslim states and affairs, wholeheartedly support Muslim generals, dictators, presidents, and kings who oppress Muslim populations, blindly support Israel in all it does, says, and occupies, identify Muslim blood as eminently more expendable than Western blood, and yet refuse to believe that they were motivating many Muslims to legitimately respond with force in their own defense?  Today’s ignorant European leaders are all too similar to the leaders of Rome as it declined toward tyranny. “Nobody knew,” the  Roman historian Tacitus said of Rome’s leaders, “everyone pontificated.”

In the United States, the reaction has been similarly nauseating. President Obama and Mrs. Clinton continue to speak as if the Islamists are – like so much of their party – the criminal scum of the earth, instead of a talented and ruthless enemy that has defeated multiple Western field armies, runs a nascent state, continues aggressive expansion around the world, and seems able to attack in the West at the time and place of its choosing. The Republicans – including Mr. Trump, who increasingly seems to value “America First” as a slogan, not a substantive policy – are calling for the use of more U.S. military force and for involving NATO’s minuscule militaries in the Middle East, presumably on the ground.

The depth of ignorance of the two parties about the disaster their leaders have wrought for the United States in the Middle East seems bottomless. Even after two full decades of complete failure in America’s war with Islam, they still think that the only way to win is to continue the interventionist policies and military actions that most motivate and increasingly strengthen the Islamists, be they in Islamic State, Al-Qaeda, or any other group.

If the United States is to survive its war with Islam, it can do so only by facing reality, resolutely putting its own interests first, disengaging from foreign commitments that limit or negate American sovereignty and independence of action, and base no future involvement in international affairs on emotion, sympathy, democracy, or ideology. Several points are pertinent in this regard.

–The United States is bankrupt, perhaps irretrievably so. It cannot possibly afford to fight what now is a world war against the Islamists. The war itself is the result of failed, even brain-dead leadership by George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and all of both parties’ 2016 presidential candidates, save Trump, and even he seems headed toward the land of the foreign-policy brain-dead, most recently by choosing the Israel-First governor of Indiana as his running mate.

–The United States government was created for only four reasons; namely, to secure the republic’s continental domain; effectively defend Americans against foreign attack; protect and assist the growth of the Constitution’s regime of ordered liberty and limited government; and facilitate the growth of American business, trade, and enterprise at home and internationally. Since 1945, these four goals have slowly fallen into tatters, and, under the past four presidents, the only true reasons for the U.S. government’s existence still exist, but are no longer being carried out.

–Americans are under no binding obligation to anyone but themselves and their God, and if the U.S. national government has ignored this fact, and bound them through treaties and other pacts to defend, fund, rescue, and democratize other nations, the policies that have done so and, perhaps, the government that has thus destroyed the republic’s sovereignty and independence, must be eliminated. Likewise, Americans are under no constitutional obligation to admit any immigrant, migrant, or illegal alien from any other country on earth if they do not want them in the United States. The refusal of entry can be applied to any foreigner and need be neither explained nor justified. All power, of courses, comes from the people and they temporarily delegate portions of it their elected representatives. On immigration, these representatives have for forty years exercised this delegated power to their own and not the voters’ satisfaction, and so, thanks to these cheap-labor wanters and diversity-and-multiculturalism mongers, the republic is awash and endangered by millions of illegal aliens, IS-or-al-Qaeda-related Arab migrants, and other on-the-dole foreigners who have no intention of assimilating. It is now time to end this national-government-encouraged invasion of the illegal, the unwanted, and the threatening, and thereby restore to the people their right to decide who is allowed to live in America, as well as to reacquaint their elected representatives with the constitutional fact that Americans are their masters, not their servants.

–The substance of U.S. foreign policy must be only material in nature, not ideological, personal, idealistic, or driven by emotion and favoritism. Washington, Adams, and Jefferson all ran foreign policies according to principles — the policies of non-intervention and neutrality — they intended to endure indefinitely. They believed that those policies would promote America’s economy and trade, serve to avoid war at almost any cost, and steer the republic clear of what Jefferson rightly described as “entangling alliances.” Today, the U.S. government does precisely the opposite. It has committed Americans to automatic war to defend such irrelevancies as Bulgaria and Israel; it gets U.S. soldiers and Marines killed in the name of spreading democracy, abortion rights, and women’s rights, the spread of which are irrelevant to the republic’s security interests, and attempts to do so undermine U.S. security; and it gets choked up with syrupy emotion and pretended grief over dead Frenchmen, Belgians, Yazidis, Nigerians, Israelis, and countless other foreigners — but not over minority-killed U.S. policeman. After such irrelevant-to-America deaths, the U.S. government offers assistance better used at home to all kinds to foreign regimes, and seems to not know that the only dead people America must fight to avenge are Americans who have been attacked and killed by foreigners. Foreign dead may genuinely pain some tender American hearts, but they are neither a sane nor a constitutional justification for involving the republic in other peoples’ fights.

–After the presidential election, either Trump or Clinton will find that the shelves of the U.S. war-making cupboard are bare. The U.S. military and intelligence services are exhausted in human and material terms from 20 years of constant, politically correct, and always losing warfare. They will also find that the services’ internal cohesion and operational security have been intentionally shredded by Obama through his and Clinton’s flooding of them with sexual deviants of all descriptions and unqualified individuals appointed because of race, ethnicity, or gender, not merit. No nation, government, or institution is ever strengthened by the addition of baseness.

–The U.S. military and intelligence services are too small to deal with what George W. Bush and Barack Obama have turned into a world war against Islam. Clinton, Trump, and the NATO leaders now blithely speak of intensifying the West’s war with Islam but seem to have no idea about what fighting an anti-Islamist world war would mean in term of manpower requirements, economic costs, and casualties. How many men and women, and how much money and blood would it take, do they think, to definitively destroy the Islamist forces now growing and/or fighting in, say, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania, Somalia, Bosnia, France, Malaysia, India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Yemen, the Philippines, Cameroon, Tunisia, Morocco, the UK, Russia, the United States, Canada, Mauritania, Albania, Kosovo, Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia, western China, Turkey, Germany, Sudan, Macedonia, the North Caucasus’ states, Mali, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Belgium, Niger, Spain, Italy, the Central Asian republics, Austria, and Bangladesh.  To do so, of course, would require the reactivation of conscription in the United States and all NATO countries, as well as enormous amounts of new spending for the war effort, requiring, in turn, deeper deficit spending or economy-killing levels of taxation or both.

–The U.S. and NATO are led by people who have proven, since Osama bin Laden declared war on them in August, 1996, that they find the idea of military victory old-fashioned and repugnant. Presidents, prime ministers, senators, chancellors, generals, politicians, and religious figures cannot comprehend that if you enter a war: (a) it must be a necessary war, not a war of choice, and you must be determined to win it at whatever cost is required; (b) the war will involve killing the enemy, his civilian abettors and supporters, and destroying his infrastructure; and (c) that war is always winnable if you eradicate your foes, or at least kill them in numbers enormous enough to make those remaining alive eager to quit the fight. The leaders noted above, however, seem oblivious to the four rules of war: (a) never go to war unless your country’s survival is at risk; (b) always apply military force at the highest and most indiscriminate level possible; (c) end the war with complete victory and as quickly as possible, speed being the only mercy in war; and (d) withdraw completely from the foreign soil when the war is over, do nothing to help bury the dead or rebuild the ruins, and leave alone whoever is left of the enemy to savor the death and physical ruination they brought on themselves.

–Because William T. Sherman, Phillip Sheridan, or George Patton cannot be recalled from the dead to apply these rules to contemporary U.S. war-making, Americans would do well to consider recalling General James Mattis, USMC, from retirement, making him Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and authorizing him to do as General George C. Marshall did on the eve of World War II, which was to retire almost 200 military officers, ranked from captain to colonel, who were nothing more than deadwood and blocked the promotion of more competent officers. General Mattis ought to be directed to go even further and retire every serving general and admiral who has ever publicly lied by saying that “there is no military solution” to this or that war. There is, needless to say, always a military solution to every war – it is called killing.

In sum, there are today, and have been for 30 years, only five issues that demand implementation by the U.S. national government: (a) the aggressive dismantling of the unconstitutional legal and economic preferences given to women, minorities, legal and illegal immigrants, sexual deviants, etc., and the restoration of the equality of all before the law; (b) a 180-degree change in the republic’s interventionist foreign policy; (c) control and then elimination of the national government’s debt; (d) promotion of the highest possible level of employment; and (e) closing the borders of the United States and a adopting 10-year ban on all immigration.

We must get on with these tasks right now, and dismiss the Potemkin issue of race that Obama and Holder have generated and exploited to further his own racist and authoritarian ambitions, create violence to destroy America’s social cohesion, and take more money from working Americans and give it to slackers of all sorts who want unconstitutional legal preference, not equality before the law. Dismiss also the clearly felonious Hillary Clinton, the shrieking, man-hating Elizabeth Warren, and their women’s movement, which exists only to decide, like Hitler’s judiciary, who is a human being, to protect the “right” to murder the unborn, and to secure for women unconstitutional legal preference, not equality before the law. Most of all, dismiss the establishments of both political parties, men and women whose routine anti-American exploits, selfish intentions, and coarse, nearly limitless greed and baseness were presciently described in a speech to the Roman Senate — about its facilitation of tyranny — that is attributed to the lawyer, statesman, and philosopher Marcus Tullius Cicero.

“For this day’s work, lords, you have encouraged treason and opened the prison doors to free the traitors. A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the carrier of the plague. You have unbarred the gates of Rome to him.”

To slow, and perhaps stop, the calculated murder of the U.S. constitution, the American republic’s descent into arbitrary government via minority rule, and the Obama-Clinton campaign to promote societal division and racial hatreds that will lead to civil war, the next-elected national government must jettison the destructive ephemera Obama’s administration catered to and falsely identified as life-and-death issues. It then must focus solely on restoring the concept of equality before the law, re-installing a non-interventionist and neutral foreign policy; closing borders and halting immigration for a defined period of years; controlling and then steadily reducing the national debt; and promoting job creation by cancelling the Obama executive orders that have choked the growth of small business.

Time is short. America already has survived much longer than most of history’s other republics, but it cannot bear more progressivism from its authors in the Democratic Party and its cowardly abettors in the Republican. Hillary Clinton and the bipartisan U.S. political elite share one striking characteristic, they both resemble elderly, saggy, hair-dyed, botoxed, and thoroughly spent Madams who ignore the mirror and behave as if they are still dazzlingly beautiful, the most desired, beguiling, and high-price-worthy whores in the brothel. And when they speak of America, they talk as if it is still 1945, thereby proving that they have no clue about either how much worldwide hatred they blithely have won for America, or how devastatingly their policies have damaged the republic’s economy, social cohesion, international standing, military capabilities, constitutional order, and national pride.

Fortunately, while Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and most of the bipartisan governing elite will remain decaying whores until the happy-for-America day of their deaths, America has a chance to recover. To begin that restoration, the next administration need make no “progress” in the Obama-Clinton sense, it need only to reverse what they have done, and begin to restore what the elite has sought to bury; namely, the program of America First, which includes ordered liberty, nationalism, an independent and neutral foreign policy, a powerfully intimidating to military to ensure no foe mistakes U.S. neutrality for pacifism, and sovereign control of borders and all aspects of domestic and foreign affairs. The next administration must also adopt an aloofness that allows the rest of the world’s nations to find their own destinies without having to fend off a self-righteous, lawless, and war-mongering U.S. government that demands they follow its self-serving prescriptions for how to vote, pray, abort, amend scripture, treat women, and, generally, slavishly accept and mirror the actions and ideas of the American governing elite, men and women whose crack-pot theories, hubris, lawlessness, greed, and international behavior have shamed and nearly destroyed the republic and brought unnecessary war to much of the world.

Of Britain’s commonsense, and the madness of the Bushes’ retainers

Britain: Waking on Friday to see that the British had voted to unchain themselves from their socialist EU masters in Brussels was a marvelous experience. In so doing, they decided to return to adulthood, and to running their own nation, in their own interests, for better or worse. On both sides of the Atlantic, the leftist media will now thunder about the xenophobia of Britons and their stupid and self-destructive behavior in seeing and accepting the economic costs of reestablishing nationhood. The name-calling will continue but the economic roils will slowly calm, and the nation’s revenues will increase as payments are halted to the EU’s terminally begging and congenitally wasteful adolescent states, such as Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain. Hereon, Britain’s government also can do more to secure the nation by making and enforcing immigration laws that meet the majority’s demands, by ending military intervention abroad, and by legally deporting those deemed dangerous or subversive, all without the busybody milquetoasts in Brussels gumming up the works.

Overall, the British people have given themselves a chance to again be themselves, respecters of the rule of their laws, English-speaking, self-reliant, predominately Protestant, and traders, bankers, and businessmen extraordinaire. Britons again can be quietly proud but stubborn nationalists, men and women who can now speak about their ancestors, men who were the authors of the freedom that has emanated from the precious commodity — now widely attacked and subverted – that America’s Founders called “English liberties”. These liberties graced and soundly governed life in the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States until the ahistorical multiculturalists  and diversity-hounds emerged from the cesspool that is the West’s academy and media to wreak havoc on commonsense, Christianity, societal cohesion, and history. Britons may well have a tough economic row to hoe for a while – and so may we, as a result — but they have acted manfully to regain their self-respect, independence, and sovereignty, as well as full control of their budget, society, and destiny. Well done. Now, it is time for Britain’s four children-nations in the English-speaking world to follow suit.

One final aspect of this drama occurs to me. All of the West’s pundits, economists, presidents, prime ministers, pollsters, and media outlets, knew for many months that the British referendum on EU membership was approaching and that many millions of Britons were pissed. And yet when the vote came and commonsense prevailed, the U.S. stock market lost 600 points, with similarly large declines in bourses around the world. Why? Because the West’s arrogant elites regard Western citizens as obedient fools on whom they can experiment with any kind of pseudo-intellectual nonsense. For decades they have forced the acceptance of multiculturalism, the fundamentalist religions of climate change and free trade, globalism, diversity, all forms of deviance as other forms of normal, uncontrolled immigration, and laws that do not apply to the elites (See, to date, Hillary and Bill Clinton). In addition, they have pardoned criminals and restored their franchise to vote for their pardoners, they have sent billions of tax dollars to support foreign nations and their often anti-Western interests, they have waged wars to spread the malignancies they regard as democracy and culture, and they have given legal preference to the demands of every non-white race, while damning, legally disrupting, and vilifying the speech, history, patriotism, and religion of whites. These hubristic elites just knew that the citizens they despise would never reach out to either depose them and their ways, or to simply choke them to death. Well, it happened last Thursday – peacefully this time – and so the very well-educated elites are scrambling in shock over the power of men and nations to want liberty, tradition, and history on their own terms, and not on the terms of those who see the world as their exclusive possession and who have so thoroughly cocked it up.

–The madness of Father Bush’s retainers: Of the many lessons that have been taught by the 2016 presidential campaign, one of the most useful is the clarity that it has brought to the often-stated, but always denied fact that there is no difference between Republican and Democratic foreign policy. Both parties support military, political, and cultural interventionism; increasing foreign aid; remaining in NATO and other organizations that take the decision to wage war out of the hands of Americans, and, generally, the ongoing and war-causing construction of George H.W. Bush’s New World Order.

This month the two parties’ identical foreign policies were highlighted when two centurions of the elder Bush’s New World Order – and therefore endless war for Americans – endorsed Hillary Clinton for the presidency. Brent Scowcroft and Richard Armitage have hopped on that female felon’s gangster-filled train, with Scowcroft pontificating that Mrs. Clinton’s “longstanding relationships with a wide array of world leaders, and their sense of her as a strong and reliable counterpart, make her uniquely prepared for the highest office in the land.” The only reason Scowcroft could have for saying such a thing is that either he has advanced dementia, or he is on-the-take from the same powerful banks, lawyers, and industries that payoff Clinton for maintaining the foreign policy status quo.

Mrs. Clinton’s only “relations” with foreign leaders are ones of peddling her influence to them and thereby serving their interests not America’s, while enriching herself and he husband, the white Bill Cosby. Her “strong and reliable” nature is one of deceit, arrogance, and bloodthirstiness, best shown by her letting four Americans die in Benghazi rather than admit her Libya policy was a reeking failure, and by her eagerness to get U.S. Marines killed in multiple wars to ensure that every Mrs. Muhammad around the world can vamp, vote, and abort. As to being uniquely qualified to be president, she is unique only in her lack of any qualification but relentless failure. In all of this, Scowcroft follows the path of the execrable Colin Powell, who endorsed Obama for the presidency, thereby inflicting on his countrymen a man who, while Powell was a general, would not have been given the command of a squad.

Hillary Clinton is simply a corrupt liar who is obsessed only with money, Huma Abedin, and wars waged to make sure women retain and expand the right to murder human beings. The doddering and clueless socialist Bernie Sanders, and that screeching, ever-on-the-warpath virago Elizabeth Warren have proven themselves to be complete political whores, who eagerly ditched their so-called anti-Wall Street “movement” to seek the favor of that dowdy, greedy, and debauched Wall Street madam, Hillary Clinton.

“I believe,” Scowcroft said, in concluding his ode to the glory of both parties’ identical foreign policies, “Hillary Clinton has the wisdom and experience to lead our country at this critical time.” What that means is that leading the United States, according to all senior Republicans and Democrats, can only be done by a person who is owned by Wall Street, the arms makers, Israel and its treasonous lobby, and the Saudis. They must be willing to intervene in other peoples’ wars, and thereby keep America always at war; remain in treaties that negate America’s ability to decide whether or not to go to war; and give tens of billions of dollars to foreigners, while a quarter of American kids are malnourished and U.S. veterans die waiting for medical treatment.

Seems like all roads lead to Mr. Trump for anything that resembles putting America first at home and abroad.

U.S.-vs-Islamic State: As IS-held cities fall, America must come home, avoid the next, far harder war

We are likely to hear much crowing about the martial prowess of the U.S.-Europe trained, Iranian-led, and Shia-dominated Iraqi Army as IS withdraws – if only temporarily – from Ramadi and Fallujah. Cities, however, do not equal power in an insurgency. They more accurately impose a significant burden, one that requires the expertise to manage a not always supportive population, provide social services, potable water, electricity and gas, road repair, garbage collection, etc. It also requires something close to a trained bureaucracy, police force, and conventional army and air force for effective defense.

IS leaders knew these realities from the start, having been taught most cogently by Osama bin Laden, and having seen the disastrous city-occupying experiences of the Red Army, Afghan Islamist commander Ahmad Shah Masood, and post-2001 U.S. leaders in Afghanistan. IS chose, however, to throw the dice and take a chance by seizing the cities prematurely, believing that a credible effort to begin making their Caliphate project a reality, and not only an aspiration, would maintain and probably increase the Islamic world’s financial, spiritual, and manpower support for their jihad. IS leaders may be losing its cities, but with them they are losing their greatest liability, garrisoned cities that are sitting ducks for enemy aerial attack.

Shed of the cities, IS will return with a vengeance to its strongest suit, nationwide insurgencies in Iraq and Syria, and – thanks to the liberal multiculturalists, diversity mongers, and nation-builders who run Western foreign, immigration, and refugee policies — an enormously expanded international military capability. Though IS took it on the chin and heart in seeing its initial Caliphate-building projects slip away, this defeat is not nearly as serious for IS as the West is and will be claiming that it is.

How was the Islamic State removed from the cities? Well, as the superb IS media will tell the story, certainly not by fellow Muslims. IS media will simply use the truth in its messages, which is that the Syrian and Iraqi armed forces – mostly apostate Alawites, Shiites, and treacherous/money-grubbing Sunnis — were trained and armed by the infidels, the Unites States and most of its NATO allies; led by Iranian and Russian general officers and advisers; and supported by the air forces of Russia, the United States, some NATO countries, and the apostate/traitorous Arab tyrants. Using what is a factual description for much of the Sunni world and anyone willing to face facts, IS media will use the tried-and-true bin Laden script; namely, that in war you win some and lose some, but the important thing is to stay in Allah’s fight and keep fighting so that Allah eventually will allow the mujahedin to win. Indeed, bin Laden never enjoyed an array of scripturally exploitable and Islam-and-Caliphate-hating enemies that remotely resembles that which IS confronts.

If the cities are lost to IS, the war will revert, for a time, to a more traditional Islamist insurgency, one which U.S., NATO, and Russian forces have long ago proved they cannot defeat. The U.S. government ignored the one chance to reduce IS to the point where those it threatens – Israel, the Arab tyrants, the EU, and Iran and the Shia world – might be able to defeat it. As was noted here before, the IS decision to seize and hold cities gave the U.S. military a chance to do things at which it has historically excelled; namely, (a) the complete destruction of a nation’s economic, industrial, social, electricity, and transportation infrastructures, so that everything has to be rebuilt from scratch, and (b) the indiscriminate slaughter of the greatest possible numbers of IS leaders, fighters, and their civilian supporters. The U.S. national government ignored this winning combination and chose – as Obama always does – to be effete and feckless, and so IS will live to fight another day, and, once regrouped, will be more than a match for any foe still in the field.

Now is the time –  listen up, Mr. Trump – for the United States to get out of the Middle East as quickly and completely as possible, certainly before the IS post-cities insurgency resumes in Iraq and Syria. There is nothing left in that theater for the United Sates except additional costly and U.S. Marine-killing defeats. While we are at it, the republic should both withdraw from Afghanistan – the prototypical “lost cause” — and recall each of the numerous penny-packets of U.S. Special Forces from Africa that Obama has deployed for domestic political impact and not anti-Islamist military affect.

The U.S. national government’s war against the Islamists – overseas and perhaps at home — is clearly lost, and just as clearly out of either its control or the control of any Western power or Russia. As Obama and his NATO sidekicks remain bore-sighted on Iraq and Syria, for example, Islamist forces – both IS and al-Qaeda – are gaining power in the Balkans, the North Caucuses, Egypt, Indonesia, Malaysia, Yemen, and Pakistan, and are building manpower and organization in Europe, western China, India, and Bangladesh. Moreover, IS and al-Qaeda are waging war and contesting for power in Libya, the other North African states, West Africa, Somalia, Kenya, and Tanzania, and appear to be gaining toeholds in central and Southern Africa.

A three-continent war against the growing Islamist movement is something only a delusional madman would want to ensnare the republic, so naturally that is exactly what Obama and Hillary Clinton did. Fortunately, the entire Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama-made mess can be sidestepped by the national government if it would do the only thing it is elected to do – protect America and its citizenry first and stay out of other peoples’ wars. And the first requirement of that duty is fourfold; (a) close and control U.S. borders; (b) end all immigration to the United States for five-to-ten years, thereby negating the simpering, teary-eyed cries of discrimination made by clueless people like Paul Ryan, all Democrats, and most pundits and academics; (c) bring U.S. forces home to prepare to fight the Islamists domestically in what will be a tough, costly struggle against a foe that already has killed or wounded many more U.S. civilians inside the continental United States than were killed in all of America’s wars since 1917; and (d) urge all Americans to arm themselves with the most powerful weapons they can afford, having seen how Obama’s administration has made it impossible to cope with the domestic Islamist threat via law-enforcement agencies alone.

Now, this commonsense approach will be hard on the bipartisan governing elite’s interventionists, so to let them down easy I think it would be a grand thing to create an armed, volunteer battalion – perhaps the “Battalion of the Expendable”? — of those who want America to wage unending interventionist, nation-building wars and who want to void the 2nd Amendment and so deny U.S. citizens the ability to defend themselves against the Islamists, an incompetent, cowardly, and/or PC-palsied national government, and the many former U.S. military personnel – all partially responsible for America losing two wars to the Islamists – now urging unconstitutional gun-control measures so the citizenry cannot defend itself against either the Islamists or the oppressive national government that has created a shadow army of 200,000 heavily armed bureaucrats to use against them.

Start this project with the 51 State Department employees who want their fellow citizens to wage a nation-building war in Syria because the poor, dear little things find Asaad’s regime repugnant; add the staffs of the National Review, Washington Post, New York Times, Commentary, and the Weekly Standard; mix in arrogant and sniveling anti-Americans like Tim Cook and Jeff Bezos; throw in experienced but always defeated soldiers like General McChrystal and other military retirees who want to unconstitutionally deny weaponry to Americans whom they and the U.S. military have proven incompetent to defend; and complement this group with a Hodge-podge of John Bolton, Charles Krauthammer, Mark Levin, Senators McCain and Graham, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, George Clooney, George Soros, and the top-tier leadership of AIPAC, the Council of Foreign Relations, and anyone else who wants to start unnecessary, interventionist wars that will kill and maim other people’s kids, not their own. Once gathered, dress them in camouflaged uniforms, give each of them an AK-47, ammunition, and some MREs, and provide them transportation – after relieving each of his or her U.S. passport — to the war zone of their choice. Then, as they fly off to their death-by-nation-building, rejoice in the knowledge that for once, in the long, bloody, and financially ruinous history of unnecessary U.S. interventionism, the people who truly deserve to die will be doing the dying.
