Snake people.

Politics, to put it simply, has overtaken society. In eras past, politics was limited mainly to the realm of the external. Ruling types would tell you how property would be bought and sold, where soldiers would be sent, and how much of your money would be taken… but they seldom told you what to think or how to speak. However, once they got into the habit of telling every child in their domain how to think and speak and run or walk – as they did with government-operated schools – they found one way after another to expand that dominance (which is like crack cocaine to ruling types) throughout the whole of the civilization.[1]
I remember a thought in, I think, a book called Why Americans Hate Politics. Not sure about that but the thought stuck with me wherever I encountered it. To wit, most Americans were content to cede to the elite a certain plenary authority over foreign policy but the deal was the elites stay out of the ordinary lives of the ordinary Joe. Even 25 years ago or thereabouts the author noted that the deal had been upended.

All manner of intervention and control are now in evidence to keep some schmuck from being “offended” or to address some bogus minority claim of past injury or present injustice (PIPI). For gosh sakes, now failing to use some ludicrous, made-up “pronoun” when addressing or referring to some sick, deluded, moronic twink is as much as your job or physical safety are worth.

And the snake people have barely gotten started.

Dirty war on whom exactly?

"Over 100 Newspapers Collude To Decry Trump's 'Dirty War On The Free Press.'"
Anybody besides me notice the “dirty war” on patriots and on white people?

This is deadly serious stuff. The American public square is diseased and our political elite are scum.

Bonus: Enjoy some intelligent and funny discussion between Sunny Lohman and Doug LNU on government’s war on our independent media here: "#39 The Silencing of Alex Jones and InfoWars."

Highly recommended. Really intelligent people and they never fail to generate entertaining content.

E.g., Doug on Islamophobia: “I’m not worried about the backlash [against Muslims]. I’m worried about the lash [of Muslims].”

If you can support them financially . . . .

Getting real.

America is ruled by a tiny percentage of people who constitute a treasonous class. These people have the money to purchase the government, the media, and the economics profession that shills for them. This greedy traitorous interest group must be dealt with or the United States of America and the entirety of its peoples are lost.[1]
Whatever happens politically and economically in this country bears no relation to common sense and the interests of the American people. Virtually every last decision point that is ever reached involves an option that would arguably vindicate common sense and those interests or vindicate the interests of the ultra-left, Muslims, foreigners, or the war party.

For example, it’s clear that a nation of some 330,000,000 people (including some 40,000,000 legal and illegal immigrants) has no need whatsoever for more immigrants, unless they happen to have a cure for cancer or erectile dysfunction. If Chinese are crowding out Americans from university STEM slots, the solution is to cut the fat from universities that requires astronomical tuition fees. “Diversity coordinators” making over $100,000 can safely be advised to see alternate employment and carpenters engaged in building crying rooms can be given more meaningful work.

All immigration needs to be shut down and the borders sealed. Sealed, not “controlled.” Troops overseas defending other nation’s borders – or violating them – need to be brought home and deployed on our own borders. But . . . NFW. That option doesn’t stand a chance of implementation. No. What will issue from the mouths of the beautiful people are maddening obfuscations like our need for “comprehensive immigration law reform,” “path to citizenship,” and “immigrants make a contribution.”

So what should obviously be done is unmentionable and every manner of mindless garbage gushes forth and the nation once again gets all wheels stuck in soft mud. Action forestalled; paralysis and avoidance embraced.

All overseen by the treasonous class. If you ask any one of them to hold out two hands they’ll stick out one hand with the palm down and the other with the palm up. Salvation is never an option with them. Only suffocating propaganda, weakness, exploitation, surrender, war, and betrayal.

Infinite white tolerance for marginalization?

And what on earth makes anyone believe that a population constantly demonized as brutal and racist and whose achievements are assailed as the products of exploitation and violence would stand aside, allowing itself to be marginalized through immigration? Should it not be fairly obvious that at some point those horrible white people in America would simply choose to put a stop to the nation’s open-borders policies which have transformed the country from immigrants being a five percent share of the population in the 1970s to a current 14 percent share?
New amigos.
And:
That [leftists' insulting the white majority] won’t continue when idiocy like intersectionality — white people are allowed to have an opinion only after people of other races have had their say, and only after going through a progression prioritizing the disabled over the abled, homosexual before straight, and transgendered before, er, gendered — or Critical Race Theory “black people can’t be racist” claptrap like that espoused by [Ezinne] Ukoha is the order of the day on the Left.

Doomed. Doomed, I say.

. . . [T]he Syrian revolution, . . . began seven years ago with the dream of changing Syria from a country governed by a dictatorial, sectarian, corrupt regime to a country in which the principles of citizenship, justice and the rule of law prevail and fundamental freedoms are respected as an issue above the Constitution.[1]
But, woe and alas, Pilgrims:
The treachery of the Syrian revolution came from many conflicting parties that did not have anything in common.[2]
Well, whoa there. Halt, stop, desist, cease, and pause. Not to be a killjoy, but I just have to point out that if the people who are going to make this glorious revolution have nothing in common then . . . that there’s probably a “revolution” that better not get started in the first place, amirite?

And . . . since one of the parties to this revolution, the United States government, has precisely zero respect for citizenship, justice, the rule of law, and fundamental freedoms and is waging war against Syria in violation of its own Constitution and the U.N. Charter, it’s in no position to lecture anyone on the ideal polity anywhere, let alone play at regime change in Syria, which modest enterprise has now led to the death of over 500,000 Syrians and the physical devastation of the country. (That awful ophthalmologist and his supporters! They fought back when they were invaded!)

Wouldn’t that clown car of a U.S. government best be considered radioactive for purposes of any kind of a joint enterprise instead of mewling about a “revolution betrayed”?

Soon. Peak stupidity.

Alas, this [Russian] sanctions gambit may lead to serious consequences — a nearly unthinkable outcome in our culture of Anything-Goes-and-Nothing-Matters.[1]
The Ramirez cartoon at ZeroHedge is superb. Sanity and limited, representative government are all but driven from the field here at home thanks to the revolutionary ultra-left and pusillanimous, grasping Republicans but it is a distant, malevolent foreign power intent on world domination that is the author of our woes. "Only in America,” as Harry Golden used to say.

A leetle perspective, professor, svp.

Francis Marx:

It seems that Trump plays the deep state. A strategy we will watch to see if it works. Everyone judges him but they are not in that hot seat.

Cassander:

So true. Guy has a seriously tough job, fighting off the Deep State, the GOPe, the Left, the LGBTs, the Pussy Hats, the Russians, the Chinese, Syria, Iran, the FBI, the DOJ, Rosenstein, Strzok, Brennan, Clapper, MI6, Mueller, Schifty, Schumer, Pelosi, the NYT, Wapo, CNN and the rest of the MSM while he's trying to break 3% GDP and Make America Great Again. And all he has is us Deplorables behind him!

Pearls of expression.

This year, new hammer blows are following on the Reagan-Thatcher-spawned era of revived Anglo-American global leadership and domination.

The British themselves have palpably failed to cave out any secure or even plausible economic prospects for themselves in the world once they leave the EU. Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Libya all remain wrecked societies shattered by the repeated air strikes that Western compassion and reverence for human rights and democracy have visited upon them.[1]

I’m not sure that Reagan and Thatcher had any desire to dominate the world or lead anyone anywhere in particular. They were simply committed to the notion that government and unions come packaged with their own pathologies. And that free markets and free men got better, though hardly perfect results. That wild notion is presently known as neo-liberalism if I understand that useless term. AKA common sense, let it be said. Attica!!

The Soviet Union struck Reagan as extraordinarily pathological, not to mention that he had had direct experience with the armies of commie pukes in the Screen Actors Guild and elsewhere in Hollywood.

It's a good thing that there aren't any more scum bag ultra-leftist traitors in Hollywood any more. Otherwise we'd have movies being made that are repulsive, moronic, hostile to common sense and common decency, and an attack on all that our ancestors stood for and built.

But apart from that (and I have gone far afield from the modest point Mr. Sieff was making), it’s a witty observation.

Stockman on U.S. interventionism and anti-Russia hysteria.

David Stockman has written a superb piece on the deranged U.S. view of the world and our place in it. Russian "imperialist ambitions" and U.S. "election meddling" are explained. Highly recommended for John Bolton and Gen. Jack Keane bedside reading:
We have detailed elsewhere how the so-called Maidan uprising on the streets of Kiev in February was funded, organized and enabled by Washington and its cadres of operators from the CIA, NED, State and sundry NGOs; and how that divided the country to the quick politically when Washington installed and recognized a radical nationalist government that immediately moved against the Russian speaking populations of the Donbas and Crimea.

Indeed, enabling the Kiev coup and instantly recognizing the crony capitalists, ruffians and neo-Nazi nationalists who formed the new government was the single stupidest act of peace candidate Barry’s entire presidency.

But by then the interventionists were in high dudgeon. So there was no stopping their virtually instantaneous demonization of Russia and Putin for actions which were self-evidently driven by Russia’s vital national interests in it own backyard – not some kind of aggressive quest for territory or lebensraum.[1]

I've written several times that the U.S. gave NO assurances concerning Crimea to the Russians as the Ukrainian fiasco unfolded. Any fool knows that the Russian naval base there is a major Russian strategic asset. Did the U.S. say it would not interfere with or compromise that asset, Scout's honor and pinky swear? It did not. "Our" failure to do that was a klooh to them that interference and compromise were precisely what were on the menu.

Was there a foreign policy genius within a thousand miles of the District of Connivers who thought that the Russians would just say to themselves, "Oh, well. Too bad the E.U. and the U.S. just snatched our amazing naval base. Easy come. Easy go."?

Russia's hand was forced yet their actions were billed as Russian expansionism. Not one thing the Russians did before the Nuland/Obongo move on the elected government of Ukraine indicated they wished to snatch Crimea. But for U.S. fiddling, Crimea would today be sovereign Ukrainian territory and the Russians would be paying rent on their base.

Such is the genius of U.S. strategic thinking.
