Back from secret mission.

The Colonel's back from a secret mission disguised as a visit to a certain government installation cleverly disguised as a Veterans Administration health facility in an unnamed Montana city.

A delightful nurse there pointed out to the vending machine tech that one of the machines dispensing ice cream would not dispense the very last item in the stack.

The tech promised to tweak the machine to solve this problem, whereupon this lady volunteered helpfully that, "It doesn't take your money. I just makes you sad."

Perhaps that should be filed under the "You had to be there" heading but it struck me then as now as hysterically funny.

I was fortunate to catch Michael Savage's show afterwards. He had a lot to say about the evil that is George Soros. Worth a listen if you're not depressed enough now: 8/16/16 podcast.

The rest of my trip home was less pleasant as the automobile electrical wiring system gremlin took up residence in the beloved Honda (450,000 miles) resulting in a short causing all instrumentation to cease to function. The car was still drivable and I made the command decision to believe that my cooling system and oil pathways would not also cease to carry vital fluids around inside the engine for the duration of my trip. And who needs turn signals anyway? Also, my air control valve persisted in its problematic behavior which I could cure with the occasional reset of the computer. A rough-running engine in the middle of @#$% nowhere is one of life's downers.

These problems occupy my time back at home now and are not without entertainment value, though chasing the short involved is not proving to be an easy thing to do. Just take off the instrument panel and figure out which of 50 wires is rubbing somewhere on the chassis. Intermittently.

I've been indifferent to blogging of late but appreciate the kind words of Mr. Guizepppe Veritas who contacted me privately. I did run across some choice comments on Zero Hedge yesterday that warrant republication here.

Until I get around to that and my usual routine, allow me to recommend Ervin Nagy's The False Mythos of Migration at Gates of Vienna. As always anywhere on the internet, the comments are choice, especially the one of Snowy. As you read the comment you can only say that what he or she's written is absurd but we all know it is the stone cold truth.

A la Sherlock Holmes, after you eliminate the impossible idea that Western leaders are acting out of a spirit of good will toward their people and intend to preserve the nation states over which they preside, you are left with the conclusion that they are malevolent destroyers bent on the destruction of the highest and best civilization ever known.

Squandering the gift.

America: A gift in the process of being squandered and sacrificed by the ingratitude of her soft, effeminate, decadent, virtue signaling inheritors. What would Lovecraft have thought of the 1965 Immigration and Naturalization Act and the resulting third world bazaar America has since inevitably become?

Shifting gears.

As it's clear that the Treason Class has no intention of enforcing America's borders and that the evisceration of the Constitution is no big deal to Republicans, it's useful to pay attention to what thoughtful people have to say by way of describing the reality of our political life, as opposed to the illusion that we're living in a functioning constitutional republic. I highlight some such views here, though they grow like weeds everywhere.

Having been as slow on the uptake as anyone, I can't claim too many independent penetrating insights early on. The Cold War years seemed straightforward enough with the main irritant being the left's (1) failure to recognize the hideous nature of communist regimes, (2) failure to recognize the superiority of economic freedom, (3) failure to recognize the innate decency of American law and traditional society, (4) pathetic belief in their ability to craft solutions to life's problems superior to those developed over the centuries, and (5) their dishonesty about their revolutionary objective.

The borders remained open and the Democrats made hay with the power that came from pandering to the black underclass and its parasitic, libertine, anti-white, criminal ways. A halfhearted gesture was made during Clinton to turn off the spigot of subsidies for producing black babies on an industrial scale and Newt seemed to be able to hold Clinton's feet to the fire on spending. Return to sanity seemed a real enough possibility.

With the mere election of GW it seemed like the pendulum swung slight back in the direction of Republican "sense" but with Bush's mad dash to the Islamic Center of Washington on the day after 9/11 to slobber over the resident Muslims, his "religion of peace" foolishness, and his hand holding and kissy face with Saudi royalty, whose hackles did not rise? What?!

Since then it's been perpetual war, Republican fiscal idiocy, Keynesian/monetary lunacy, and servile Republicans stretching to the horizon. It's a period that might in future histories be known as The Long American Demolition Derby, Mud Wrestling, and Foreigner-Worshiping Extravaganza. Immigration spiraled up into the clouds; Islam became as hard to understand as quantum mechanics; Muslims and ultra-leftists were inserted into federal agencies with abandon; rule by decree became the new normal; inexplicable, unconstitutional, and fatuous foreign military adventures multiplied; and Republicans cowered under their desks, immobilized by a Harry Reid raised eyebrow.

Anyone who still thought we might still be living in something remotely like a Jimmy Steward/Bob Hope kind of normality finally had to hang it up. It just wasn't Kansas any longer and a grotesque transformation of the United States was visibly in progress, aided and abetted by the sellout media and dumb ass academics.

This is Chuck Baldwin's take on what we face:

Over most of the last century, conservatives and liberals, Republicans and Democrats, and Christians and secularists have collectively jettisoned constitutional government in favor of a Welfare State, a Warfare State, a Nanny State, and a Police State.[1]
The acquiescence of the worthless Paul Ryan in the last spending bill granting everything that Obama wanted in his relentless drive to destroy even the remnants of the old America is Exhibit B for Republican complicity in the Obama revolutionary agenda. Exhibit A is the Republican failure to impeach Obama for his extra-constitutional end run around our immigration laws and his undeclared, unconstitutional war against Syria and Libya. Republicans love both.

Here's Clyde Wilson's take on Republican duplicity:

Another fact: With the exception of Reagan’s contribution to winning the Cold War, the entire history of the Republican Party in the 20th century has been grotesque betrayal—a lack of effective opposition to any leftist and Democratic initiative. The Republican Party has won office claiming opposition and immediately abetted and institutionalized whatever revolution has been imposed. Whenever the party leadership has been challenged, money, electoral expertise, and cunning deceit have been employed to defeat the usurper.[2]
On the issue of dynastic government, so help me God, Baldwin has this to say:
For twenty out of the last twenty-eight years, America has had either a Bush or a Clinton in the White House. And to the chagrin of Democrats who thought they were getting “change” with Barack Obama, for the past eight years, he has simply treaded water for the Bush/Clinton regime. And with Hillary winning the Democrat nomination, they are back.[3]
Yet another Bush stepped in to offer himself this year as a presidential candidate, an example of unmitigated gall if ever there was one. I thought I had an ego but that guy takes the cake.

Is that what the Constitution was all about? Dynastic government? Rule by two families of nonentities, lightweights, and a horn dog, followed by an interim joke, to be followed, God forbid, by a lying, foul-mouthed, power-hungry Alinsky groupie who gives political corruption a bad name?

The essence of Merkel's rule.

Since the bland, circumspect, inscrutable, placid, blancmange (but devious and vicious Coudenhove-Kalergi Prize-winning) Merkel intends to ignore the consequences of her recent and earlier intentional Muslim madness, she and her CDU lawn jockeys, factotums, sycophants, lickspittles, and legally-dead Frankenführerin intend to augment the hellish life they have inflicted on the German people (Leuteschlag, people smash) with the Hasssuchekampf (Hate Search Struggle) or Traumverstärkungkrieg (Dream Reinforcement War).

If reality is vexing in any aspect then promote fantasy ("European values"), conceal actual crime, and crucify malcontents, patriots, and those simply aghast at the jungleization of Germany with the aid of a former Stasi informer, the BND, and our own Mark ("The Lion of Free Speech") Zuckerberg.

Merkel, the former communist youth organization functionary, has created the dystopia so beloved of leftists, but you can thank her for two things: (1) Germany is not being torn apart by vile nationalism and (2) its leaders know the difference between the form of National Socialist government excess and its substance.

The reason for Trump's popularity.

Since Bush I was elected in 1988 (28 years and seven, four-year presidential terms ago), high-paying mfg. jobs have been sent abroad while at the same time, these same American presidents have let tens of millions of illegals stay here without regard for the long-term consequences to the American way of life. The rampant bitterness we see now is the culmination of prior presidents policies topped-off with the devastating effects of Obama, who vandalizes "traditional" America everywhere he can. These last four presidents have collectively, inflicted a colossal burden upon the American people for which there is no penalty to them; but only to the quarter-billion people who are the American middle-class.[1]
All those presidents did that. They let millions of illegals stay as though it were the most normal thing in the world to allow foreigners to flood the United States of America because they felt like grabbing a piece of our pie.

Note, too, that the mantra is "11 million illegals." It's been "11 million" since Al Gore first had to crank up his air conditioner at Chateau Gore. Ann Coulter played with some simple numbers and said at a minimum it's 30 MILLION. At a minimum, my friends.

All perfectly normal and unremarkable by the political class. The perfect expression of globalism and leftist lunacy: inundation of white people in their own countries.

Marxist dystopia.

America, the extraordinary experiment in self government, has evolved into a joke. Consider this from the party that has run it for the last 28 years (and, let it be said, Ronald "Trust but verify" Reagan was fine with open borders):
Tim Kaine, the perfect persona of the non-threatening, white, do-gooding, suburban squish, who speaks Espanol to boot. A non-threatening but “Catholic” face to serve as cover for alpha female/pen_s envy Hil_LIAR-y and the Dem/Marxist platform:
  • abortion on demand for women so “they can have it all”;
  • socially destructive welfare/affirmative action aka Black Skin Privilege for A/As;
  • amnesty/open borders/affirmative action aka Brown Skin Privilege for Hispanics;
  • gender neutral toilets for TGs; and
  • oppressive EPA regulation to appease the “the end is near” global warming alarmists, etc.

It’s the ticket to Marxist—Hil_LIARy, Obama, Sanders--dystopia.

Unguided missiles.

Americans, that is.

At least the nation is not guided by anything resembling rationality. Our political class just can't get enough of "Heal the world," "Transform the world," and "Invade the world."

Yes, we are the indispensable people. The world yearns for our leadership. The key to human happiness is known to us. America is but one nation among many. Global interests must be pursued. American interests are of no consequence in the larger scheme. Our resources know no limits. Let the world contemplate our "exceptionalism."

Outside of the leadership of France, Germany, Sweden, and the E.U., people around the world must think we've lost our minds. Gaddafi's got to go. Assad, too. We know these things. Vladimir Putin is a thug and Russia must be made to back down. From what, it isn't clear. We judge and we judge with unerring accuracy.

Our insufferable arrogance must stimulate white-hot fury, though that of the northern Europeans and the joke known as the E.U. differs but little from our own.

As some wit of something particularly nauseating, "It's enough even to make Rod McKuen throw up." Except the people of Serbia, Iraq, Ukraine, Libya, and Syria, our dead and wounded troops and their the families, and the families of those left to die in Benghazi are the only ones paying the dearest price in wasted and shattered lives for our arrogance.

To internationlists/globalists, Trump's nation-centric program summed up as "America First" is the abyss. It spells "retreat" from global interests and multi-national organizations (more abyss). Their own notions of American interests are collectively, yea, utopianly and even zealously conceived, something a la George W. Bush's. The anti-democratic European Union is their idea of an ally, not the sovereign states attempting to be reborn from it. They seem never to be happier than when some "US-led NATO" action is underway, attempting to create global/U.S.-led utopia, the one that always fails to take root while killing tens of thousands of people along the way. It is this worldview that has in recent years led to thousands of American troops losing their lives and their limbs deep in the Islamic world, but, hey, anything for utopia.[1]

"Conservatives" unmasked.

One of the great, great side benefits of the rise of Trump is the slipping of the mask of the smug, lilly-livered, lying, sneaky, conniving, useless, posturing, sellout oxygen thieves of the "right" who have cried mighty rivers of tears over the lost greatness of the American republic, limited government, and constitutionalism but done bugger all to reverse our slide into being a nation that is nothing more than a formless, brown, third-world glop.

On one of the most fundamental aspects of our Western tradition, Kevin Williamson had this to say:

As National Review #NeverTrump-er Kevin Williamson has suggested, “"the Democratic party and its undemocratic ‘superdelegate’ system sure is looking smart right about now."[1]
Nothing vexes these latte-drinking grandees than to have the unwashed citizens of fly-over country actually decide to change the political and social course of the country. They're perfectly comfortable with any measure that debases the Constitution so long as it can be squeezed under the heading of "market-based" and "meritocratic." An efficient, meritocratic tyranny is just the ticket. They will bow down before some pale, flaccid abstraction and spit on actual flesh-and-blood fellow citizens and the plain wording of the Constitution.

I think American politicians accrued a lot of trust and credibility in the long struggle with Stalinism and other forms of communist terror even though they were incapable of putting their finger on what exactly it was about communist theory that guaranteed the disasters their governments effected. To this day, communism is no more threatening than Christian Science or Mormonism to the smart set. Nonetheless, the general competence and patriotism visible in most of the major actors of those times was appreciated and we knew the general course of the nation was a correct one.

However, that trust and credibility spilled over into the politics that ensued after the fall of the Soviet Union and the morons and traitors who rose to prominence busily concerned themselves with locating and combating chimeras and will-o'-the-wisps like badness, un-Chinese dictators (brutal), "Islamism," "terror," "radical fundamentalist, Islamic Jihad," and the ghost of Josef Stalin risen from the grave to re-occupy the Kremlin in the person of the most evil man on the planet, Vladimir Putin. Not counting Bashar Assad of Syria. Words cannot describe the evil nature of that man.

If I ask how did we come to be ruled by such dweebs, twinks, and twits, the answer is that we either inherited them or they poured out of the woodwork of trusted institutions like cockroaches in the dark. We thought that today is like yesterday and there must have been some logical laying on of hands.

The full extent of the populist fury that's been fermenting and boiling up is not yet known but you can be sure that a lot of regular Americans are wide awake to the betrayals of the elites and the contempt they have for us.

We stymied.

The familiar explanation for black failure – repeated endlessly in motion pictures, newspapers, magazines, and by political and educational leaders – is lingering white racism. As Taylor stresses:

"Americans are so accustomed to hearing – and repeating – this view that they scarcely bother to think what it means. It means, essentially, that white people, not blacks, are responsible for black behavior. It implies that blacks are helpless and cannot make progress unless whites transform themselves.

"Do blacks drop out of school? Teachers are insensitive to their needs. Do black women have children out of wedlock? Slavery broke up the black family. Are blacks more likely than whites to commit crimes? Oppression and poverty explain it. Are ghetto blacks unemployed? White businesses are prejudiced against them. Are blacks more likely to be drug addicts? They are frustrated by white society… There is scarcely any form of failure that cannot, in some way, be laid at the feet of racist white people."

Hillary's health.

Does this look normal, staged, or tampered with in any way? Pay attention to the reaction of the woman with pink nail polish:

Don't look for this to be on the MSM anytime soon.
