C.F.R Derangement Syndrome.

Not to be missed is this article by Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations: "Liberal World Order, R.I.P.."

Every lunatic idea dreamed up by liberal fruitcakes is laid out in this article. I would be embarrassed to write such drivel. It’s a tour de force of distilled liberal delusion and arrogance. Every thing you can think of that is wrong-headed or a vicious lie about the world order today is laid out in it plain as day.

I gotta give it to this guy. Yes, “'America First' and the liberal world order seem incompatible.” What was his first clue?

He ladles out the current garbage about the Syrian government’s use of chemical weapons – a lie – and moans about the crumbling of the liberal order. The keystone provision of that “order” was the creation of the United Nations. It was to preserve the peace by forbidding war except under certain limited conditions, none of which conditions apply to the U.S. and its present war of aggression on the sovereign state of Syria.

The U.S. wages aggressive war -- a war crime. We are allied with and support the scum of the earth in the form of al-Qaida and ISIS. We are directly responsible for over 400,000 civilian deaths and creating millions of Syrian refugees all the while we speak of Syrian “rebels” as a band of decent citizens driven to oppose Assad the Butcher, a laughably false caricature of a decent and popular leader. But this maroon wants us to believe that the threat to peace is Russia’s use of “armed force to change borders in Europe.” Yes, he said that. How exactly did the borders of Serbia change if not by the application of American “armed force”?

And if you think Russia changed the borders in Europe by “armed force” -- which it didn’t -- get a load of what Syria will look like after the U.S. gets finished with carving it into Syria Dismembered, Israel Plus, Kurdistan, ISISville, E. Texas Oil Patchi, and Turkey Plus.

The rise of populism -- detested by Haass -- is anything but “a response to stagnating incomes and job loss.” It is solely is response that millions of Westerners have to understanding what it is exactly that utterly delusional people like this man have done to destroy our countries. They have guaranteed us a future in which our fundamental liberties will be undermined by courts and in which we will be attacked by Black Lives Matter and AntiFa street gangs and prosecuted if we object. We will now have to fight millions of Muslims and third-world enemies invited into our countries by them just to regain what they have stupidly given away. They have destroyed our hopes for peace and virtually guaranteed the destruction of Western civilization, but gibbering fools like this guy clutch their pearls and sing hymns to the “liberal world order.”

It would be criminal not to comment on Haass’s observation that “Parties of the political extremes have gained ground in Europe.” Surely he means the CDU/CSU parties in Germany that have imported over a million Muslims and Africans who have raped German women and turned public swimming pools and flower gardens into places of defecation. Or does he mean the ruling party or parties of Belgium that arrested the unresisting Flip Dewinter of the Vlaams Belang party with the highly effective testicle hold? Or surely he must mean the Conservative Party in Britain whose prison officials arranged for Tommy Robinson to be doused in boiling sugar water while in one of Her Majesty's prisons. Just what does this man want us to believe about the immigration-crazed established parties of Europe and Britain? That they are not extremist parties?

Liberals are slave to fantasy and an unrelieved hostility toward their own kind and their “liberal order” is rotten to the core. There’s hardly a sentence in this pathetic article that doesn’t illustrate perfectly the inability of the elites to deal with the eternal realities of a world in which civilization is closer to an accident than an achievement. There’s but a thin wall between decency and barbarism and these fools have done all in their power to weaken and destroy it.

Cavuto humor.

I thoroughly enjoy Neil Cavuto’s dry humor on Fox Business News. A Fox reporter one time sought to explain virtual reality headsets to Cavuto telling him that for someone of his age he could understand it best by thinking of it as something like Viewmaster (a 1950s mechanical picture viewer much loved by kids that showed images in 3D). That segment ended and Cavuto muttered, “Can that woman be escorted from the building?”

Charlie Gasparino reporting from some remote location also jerked Cavuto’s chain about something and when that segment ended Cavuto remarked that that was Charlie Gasparino making his last appearance on Fox News.

Today he was talking to some financial guy about the budget deal and told him, “I think [Trump’s] shrewd politically to weigh the political risk and say in the scheme of things Americans [care about?] none of these issues of the day. I think they’re important for your generation. Very important. I’ll get my Social Security. You won’t get yours. I’m fine with that.”

Mystery unraveled.

The bottom line is that the Chinese are buying off our politicians. Enriching them and their families in exchange for military and economic concessions for China.[1]
The bought politicians are at the highest level.

I never fail to ask why it was that of all the nations in the world we could have transferred tens of thousands of our factories to we chose a totalitarian communist state with a native language that is one of the hardest to learn on the planet? India has a literate, English-speaking population. Nor had it had occasion to cause the death of some 80,000,000 of its citizens in part in some insane economic fantasy and in the course of a vicious, pointless, insane, internal political spasm.

But, assuming some kind of need to gut our industrial bases, we did not choose to favor India, a functioning democracy.

Noooo our factories ended up in @#$% China who we knew were manipulating the value of their currency to further stick it to the stupid Americans.

The U.S. government sat there like a rag doll or stood there like Mr. Magoo and did nothing to repair our disastrous tax, trade, and immigration policies as the trade imbalance sluiced money into the hands of a strategic competitor, if not an enemy. What our sellout elites did was to turn China into a world military power and an ambitious international resource-grabbing behemoth. While the U.S. has been pouring trillions into the desert wastes of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Yemen, the Chinese have been locking in deal after deal for resources around the world. Yet another aspect of Chinese reality that is simply invisible to our so-called "leaders." From such genius may the good Lord deliver us.

Now we know why the China initiative took place in the first place and why our elitist did nothing to protect American interests. They were bought. They sold us out.

As I also like to say (hat tip Sherlock Holmes), once you eliminate the impossible, what you have left is the truth, no matter how improbable. Thus, once you eliminate the impossibility that U.S. elites give a tinker’s dam about the national interests of the United States and its people, then your are left with the understanding that they are nothing less than traitors, that they hate the country and its people, and will do anything for money even if it means enriching an enemy.

Quotable quotes.

Western mainstream media have their narrative and they don’t want to see it disturbed. Any evidence that goes against their preferred narrative – namely that ‘Assad is a butcher, massacring his people’ – anything that disturbs that narrative is simply ignored or mocked. But the truth is beginning to come out... All these crocodile tears being cried by the likes of Ambassador Nikki Haley in New York are disgraceful, trading on sentiment when behind it is just cynical great power maneuvering.
~ Peter Ford, former British ambassador to Syria.[1]

Cell phone interruption.

Pearls of expression.

As a New Zealander, and therefore a leading expert on ‘Aussies’, my theory is that humans are not designed to live on such a sun-baked continent, and eventually all go ‘troppo’. It is likely that the sun fries the cerebral cortex and reduces man to a sort of lizard state, which we see most clearly in the form of the Australian cricket team – but I will admit, my science is rather rudimentary at this stage, and full publication of the theory on Unz may be some time away.

Chemical agents alleged to have been used by Russia in Skripils’s poisoning.

What is totally insane about all of these allegations against Russia is that so far they have not identified the nerve agent that was used against Skrpil and his daughter. As far as one can tell from what the British have revealed about this attempted killing is that the agent is an organophosphate triester acety choline (ach) inhibitor. This is a class of chemicals that include hundreds if not thousands of different compounds. As a matter of fact most of these compounds can be synthesized in very simple labs if there is an individual that has the knowledge. It would be possible to put together such a lab in a single family house with a natural gas, electric hook ups and a good kitchen sink along with a few thousand dollars to purchase the right flasks, pumps and temperature controllers.

The suggestion by May that Russia is one of the only countries in the world capable of making this stuff is totally laughable. In the last 80 years the organophosphate neurotoxins have been used by and produced by dozens of countries as insecticides. These chemicals were discovered by German chemists in the 1920s. The difference between an insecticide and a chemical warfare agent is no more than a simple side chain about the phosphate core.

At this point there close to zero evidence that the agent used to intoxicate the Skripils was something uniquely available to Russia.[1]

I understand that sarin is not something that you can mix up in your garage. I read that the oddball Japanese sect that released sarin in the subway years ago brewed their own but they actually had considerable resources to produce it safely. That said, I don’t know offhand whether sarin is also an organophosphate triester ach inhibitor like this 'Novichok' or Novichok-type agent.

It does seem clear that it is highly likely that the nature of the potent new agent became known at a minimum to the U.S.:

Since its independence in 1991, Uzbekistan has been working with the government of the United States to dismantle and decontaminate the sites where the Novichok agents and other chemical weapons were tested and developed.[2]
If a technical person is going to decontaminate an area, he has to know what kind of a problem he has. His first question would most definitely be, “What have we got here?”

Bottom line: even if U.K. Prime Minister May has correctly identified the substance used in the attack on the Skripils, it cannot be said that only the Russians knew the formula and only they could manufacture it.

New U.S. outrage in the works.

Well, it appears that Assad is a relentless glutton for punishment, because not even a year later, the WaPo reported two weeks ago that the US is considering a new military action against Syria for - what else - retaliation against Assad's latest chemical attack, which took place several weeks earlier.

How do we know Assad (and apparently, Russia) was behind the attack? We don't: in fact, former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, in a moment of bizarre honesty, admitted that he really doesn't know much at all about "whoever conducted the attacks" But hey: just like it is "highly likely" that Russia poisoned the former Russian double agent in the UK - with no proof yet - so it is "highly likely" that a clearly irrational Assad was once again behind an attack which he knew would provoke violent and aggressive retaliation by the US, and once again destabilize his regime.[1]

Flogging the “chemical weapons” dead horse for every last ounce of mendacious propaganda for arrogant U.S. aggressive war. It's what's for dinner.

I don’t know about you but dictating who rules Syria and how, playing chest bump with the Russians, cozying up to Saudis and Qataris, pushing lies about Iran's being the chief sponsor of terrorism, and setting the stage for war with Iran are way, way down there on my “to do” list. I get it that we haven't had a trade surplus since, what, 1975. Aggressive action on trade long overdue? Check. Clear as day.

But opening up a yet wider gush from the U.S. fiscal artery for pointless, illegal foreign war I don't get, yet such war and its enormous costs seem to captivate the thinking of U.S. moron elites. Pressing problems at home? Mañana!

It appears that where it really counts, President Trump is nowhere to be found. Campaign skepticism about foreign adventure has been replaced with mindless surrender to the neocon crazies. Ready, fire, aim!
