Destroying the Middle Class is a Feature not a Bug

People need to grasp that the establishment of both political sides hates the Middle Class. The rise of Islamism in the West is an existential threat to the Middle Class, as is unchecked illegal immigration to America’s Middle Class.

The est wants to rule, they want it THEIR way. The poor vote for whomever promises the most redistribution from the Middle Class (where the money is simply because of its size). The rich vote whatever level of government they want. The poor don’t care about liberty or freedom – they can’t afford it. The rich have it – in spades […]

Excellent Commentary on Rex Tillerson from Nash Montana

Note: Nash is a FB friend, accomplished writer, professional translator and excellent observer of the modern scene. Below is her take on T-Rex today. If you are on FB, following her will ensure you are current on events of importance, and is highly recommended. Nash authorized my linking to her post here.

A Very Deliberate and Structured Secretary Rex Tillerson Discusses Iran

No event is happening in a vacuum. It is critical to emphasize this basic point when evaluating the foreign policy of President Trump and his administration.

There is a very well planned multidimensional construct within the sequencing […]

Obama, Trump and the American Century

So… I read today that Obama ended the “American Century,” and Trump is bringing it back…

What to say, what to say. …

The “American Century” concept arose because we kicked ass in two wars, saved Europe with the Marshall Plan, protected it with NATO, and rose to enormous economic power.

Let’s unpack that:

WW1

Had by 1917 already arrived at a stalemate between continental Great Powers. Had it been left alone, a rather normal conditional peace likely would have broken out, the Germans and the French, enemies since the Goths sacked Gaul and Rome, would have traded a few […]

“Ties”, Half Measures and History

Half measures rarely result in the success of the goals they are implemented to achieve. The West, including Israel, needs to accept this.

Accepting the half-measure of Wilson’s Fourteen Points and not defeating or occupying Germany in 1918 led directly to WW2 and its tens of millions of dead.

The full-measure defeat of Germany and Japan in 1945 led to their becoming freer, wealthier, better-educated than ever in their history, and political, economic and military allies since.

Throughout history, victors have taken some or all of the lands of those they have vanquished. The Apache took the land of the […]

A “Split” Means Two Sides

Trump’s presence on the world stage is unnerving those, Left and Right, who are invested in the Western post-war order. Their complaint is that he will upset what already is devolving to failure, as acknowledged by the people living in the countries of the West, if not by its out-of-touch elites.

With european fertility nonexistent, and the takeover of all future employment in europe by illiterate muslims as a result, the “West” now consists of N. America, Britain (maybe – post-Brexit, we shall see…), and a mercantilist East-Orthodox Russia trying to Westernize.

There can be no “split” with a europe […]
