Send Them Back to the Kitchen Dept.

United States Attorney General, Loretta Lynch:
We stand with you [the LGBT community] to say that the good in this world far outweighs the evil, that our common humanity transcends our differences, and that our most effective response to terror and to hatred is compassion, it’s unity, and it’s love,” Lynch said. “We stand with you today as we grieve together, and long after the cameras are gone, we will continue to stand with you as we grow together in commitment, in solidarity, and in equality.[1]
Lynch is no slouch in the Vacuous Buzzwords Department (VBD) either:
  • stand with you,
  • our common humanity,
  • transcends (common sense?),
  • differences,
  • hatred,
  • compassion,
  • unity,
  • love,
  • stand with you today (more standing),
  • grieve together,
  • continue to stand with you (even more standing),
  • grow together,
  • commitment,
  • solidarity, and
  • equality.

This kind of meaningless flapdoodle is also a specialty of our putative president, as witness his speech after the Ft. Hood workplace violence incident six long years ago.

There was a great "Twilight Zone" episode years ago where a low-life card sharp dies and ends up in an amazing place where every dice throw comes up seven, gorgeous women hang on his arm and his every word, and every need is provided for in luxury. He finally becomes so bored that he begs to be sent to "the other place." The official in charge laughs and says that this is "the other place."

Maybe the nearest earthly equivalent is to live in a great country but to be afflicted by a ruling class that is devoid of insight, character, firmness of will, and ability to foresee the immediate and long-term consequences of economic and political choices. On the outside they look like intelligent, normal people but after you watch them for a while you see they are dull, venal, treacherous, flaccid, empty, and treasonous.

They are uniformly like the two teenagers in the horror movie who hear a noise in the basement of the haunted house and immediately decide to go investigate. Yes, that's right. Go find out what's making that noise! When they reach the basement you want to scream at them, "Don't split up! Don't split up!" But they always do.

The political class is like that. When faced with a ludicrous decision and a commonsense decision which one do they invariably choose? Correct. The ludicrous one. The insane one. The most destructive one.

Merkel, for example, was faced with two alternatives:

(1) stop participating in the war against Syria that generates refugees; help refugees in place at a fraction of the cost; stop groveling at the feet of Erdogan who is also participating in the war against Syria and playing her like a Dollar Store ukelele; don't be a sap about admitting criminals, jihadis, economic parasites, and competitors for jobs and resources that should go to Germans; and demand interdiction at the land border with Turkey and in the Mediterranean; or . . .

(2) flood Germany and the rest of Europe with people who will cause enormous expense, heartache, misery, destruction, crime, and death.

We all know how that one went down.

The same in the U.S. where we have two big choices: (1) stop all legal immigration, bring back our troops from the Afghan border to seal our border, and deport foreign invaders and visa overstayers, or (2) keep legal immigration at toxic levels, leave the border wide open, and grant welfare and citizenship to invading illegals.

Obvious Treason Class choice: (2).

Yeah, baby.

It's the same with the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The elite has the option of supporting (1) a grasping, conniving, lying, abusive, power-hungry monster or (2) a normal person. And, 'chachos, the Establishment nominee is?

Chinese landscape painters loved to depict officials and wise men with long white beards living in gorgeous remote mountains where they contemplate waterfalls. I understand those guys. One can stand only so much mediocrity.

Mile markers on the road to oblivion.

I really don’t know what it will take to knock that big fat lie [diversity is our strength] on the head and kill it for good. Nine-eleven should have done it in all logic; but no, we just doubled down on our diversity gamble, admitting more Muslims for settlement in the decade after 9/11 than we had in the decade before.

Keynesianism and the abyss.

Virtually every measure of industrial production is heading south yet, [Fed Chairwoman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve] Yellen pretends that just a few more months of ZIRP will do the trick.

* * * *

. . . Yellen and her merry band of money printers are simply prolonging the inevitable day of reckoning when the third great financial bubble of this century comes crashing down.[1]

90 months of ZIRP are going to ignite our rocket sometime soon. Very soon. Very, very soon.

Adios to the middle class.

In America, Europe, China, Japan, and the many other places in the world where there was an existing or emerging middle class, the global economy, which globalists in the U.S. and the EU promised us would bring more economic prosperity, has caused the opposite through downward pressure on wages due to global competition. When the beginnings of these trends first began to emerge with events like Rockefeller going to China in the 1970s and the creation of NAFTA, GATT, and the WTO, etc., the American people were told through a corporate controlled media that this would allow Americans to prosper in the new global market place.

Of course, the globalists knew what the real outcome would be from the beginning.[1]

Also, much downward pressure on U.S. workers, if not outright displacement, from our insane diabolical embrace of open borders and encouragement of mass illegal and legal immigration.

Three black cults.

In John McWhorter’s fine book, Losing the Race, he (bravely) describes three ‘cults’ within the Black community in general that are having such a detrimemtal effect on black lives. They are (1) the cult of anti-intellectualism; (2) the cult of separatism; and (3) the cult of victimization. The Black Lives Matter crowd (BLM), which has the ear of our president, is being intellectually dishonest when it ignores the well documented pathologies of sky rocketing illegitimacy and high school dropout rates, absent fathers, and drug and alcohol abuse and asserts the only causes for the horrific carnage in their communities is vague non-specific racism and Police malfeascence.

Arab-based cult of supremacy.

[Islam] in truth is not a Religion but an Arab based cult of supremacy that has like the Cancer it truly is spread across the globe aided more often than not by a Cabal of Saudi Arabia, the United Nations which incidently the Muslims and rogue States control by weight of numbers in the General assembly and of course the Marxist Left who are just like the Vichy French of World War Two and the Quislings of Norway and countless Treacherous traitors throughout History.[1]
Not just Arab-based, alas.

You've Gotta Love Millennials - Micah Tyler.

Not in Kansas any more.

It’s very difficult for middle class people to understand that the institutions that they thought were there for their protection are now instruments of their persecution.

The GOP convention should be interesting–will it be disrupted and shut down with the implicit connivance of the Cleveland government? And what kind of Election Day 2016 intimidation and harassment will we be looking at?

Trump and Judge Curiel.

If a judge were associated with the KKK or some white supremacy group, the media and the liberals would take to the fainting couches followed by screaming into bullhorns at protest riots. But we're supposed to cast a blind eye to obviously biased Hispanic judges and jurists who belong to race-based groups who do not hide their contempt for whites or America. . . .

Playing with fire.

It is also symptomatic of the entire anti-Russian narrative to ignore similar NGO activities by the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and even Spain through a great variety of platforms that they have established around the world, with an emphasis on former colonies or territories of historical interest.

Put in this context, the Russian efforts are exceedingly modest and would never justify the attention that they are receiving from Moscow’s detractors. But the broader lesson is that the authors of such reports never look in the mirror and ask what they themselves are doing. Everything Russia is doing is taken to be unique, calculating and sinister whereas the West’s actions set a gold standard for selflessness, generosity and good governance.[1]

Looking back at the run up to WWII, I invariably wonder what was so freaking urgent about jumping into that ghastly spasm of murder, bloodshed, pain, and destruction. Especially after the horror of WWI which was, like, a kleww that modern warfare was something terrible beyond all imaginings. But, no, those smug, scheming, blind pricks wanted to play at The Great Game and millions upon millions paid the price.

Apparently, this has all escaped the notice of the current crop of savants, saviors, and snakes who recklessly poke at the flanks of Russia and mouth garbage like "Arab Spring," "regime change," "Assad must go," and "Russian adeventurism."

At the conclusion of WWII, efforts to establish collective security and mechanisms to avoid catastrophes that had just happened were made with great fanfare and solemnity. It was all for nought and Obongo bombs and subverts the sovereign state of Syria (actual member of the United Nations) with impunity and no, that's no, resort to the mechanisms or principles of the U.N. and certainly not the U.S. Constitution.

The love of risk, war and death is as alive and vigorous as it has ever been. Ann Barnhardt might well be on to something.
