Trump vs. His Own Administration?
Post Date: 2018-08-14 10:35:32 by Deckard
Are President Trumps senior cabinet members working against him? Its hard not to conclude that many of the more hawkish neocons that Trump has (mistakenly, in my view) appointed to top jobs are actively working to undermine the presidents stated agenda. Especially when it seems Trump is trying to seek dialogue with countries the neocons see as adversaries needing to be regime-changed.Remember just as President Trump was organizing an historic summit meeting with Kim Jong-Un, his National Security Advisor, John Bolton, nearly blew the whole thing up by making repeated references to the Libya model and how it should be applied to North Korea. As if Kim would jump ...

After much reflection on this channel's operation over a long tyme of being a chit-chat channel member, I have to admit: A K A Stone has performed GOOD. As an opinion, we may not be growing in numbers but we have some of the most politically opinionated diverse group in the Universe adding valuable opinions to make us, "THINK." Thanks, Stone.
Opinion: How a senior DOJ official helped Dem researchers on Trump-Russia case

Opinion: How a senior DOJ official helped Dem researchers on Trump-Russia case By John Solomon The Hill Opinion Contributor Hundreds of pages of previously unreported emails and memos provide the clearest evidence yet that a research firm, hired by Hillary Clintons campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to find dirt on and defeat Donald Trump, worked early and often with the FBI, a Department of Justice (DOJ) official and the intelligence community during the 2016 presidential election and the early days of Trump's presidency.

Norma Brickey, an eighty-two-year-old mother, has been driving the streets of Columbus, Ohio, with a sign in her car window reading, My son needs a kidney, O positive, followed by her phone number. Both she and another of her sons have had kidney transplants. All three suffer from polycystic kidney disease, a condition in which cysts form on the kidneys. Her son who is still waiting for a kidney transplant goes to dialysis for four hours, and then goes to his job as a nurse for 12 hours. He has been on dialysis for almost two years. This is the year Im going to find him a kidney, says his mother. She doesnt make extra trips for people to see the ...
There Is No Death in the Pot
Post Date: 2018-08-07 06:14:11 by Deckard
So they poured out for the men to eat. And it came to pass, as they were eating of the pottage, that they cried out, and said, O thou man of God, there is death in the pot. And they could not eat thereof. (Kings 4:40) What is more dangerous: Taking a bath or passing around a joint? Swimming or smoking marijuana in a bong? Taking aspirin or eating brownies laced with marijuana? If you said a joint, a bong, and marijuana-laced brownies, then go to the head of the class. According to the National Vital Statistics Reports issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 2.7 million people die in the United States each year. The fifteen leading causes of death are: Diseases ...
Silence on U.S. Meddling Abroad
Post Date: 2018-08-05 11:15:25 by Deckard
Among the most fascinating aspects of the brouhaha over supposed Russian meddling in Americas electoral system is the total silence in the U.S. mainstream press about U.S. meddling in the political affairs of other countries. Consider the mass outrage and indignation among the mainstream press that Russia would actually want to help a U.S. presidential candidate who favors normalizing relations with Russia over a candidate that was determined to do the opposite. Why not the same outrage against the U.S. national-security establishment for helping its favorite people come to office in foreign countries? By their silence regarding U.S. meddling in foreign countries, one could easily ...
The Monopolization of Heroes by the State

Television and movies are full of heroes. Drama could hardly exist without them of course, but have you noticed that nearly every hero in modern dramas is associated with the state? Here are dramas playing on TV in my town tonight, with the heroes following: Hawaii Five-0 Police Blue ...
This isn't culture war. It's worse.
Post Date: 2018-08-02 09:30:55 by Deckard
Progressives continue to astonish normal people with their complete incomprehension of normals (as Kurt Schlichter calls them) as human beings. Perhaps that's because they don't see us as human beings. They call us unsavory names deplorables, bitter clingers, toothless, plus every dirty word they can think of. They throw nasty, biological things. They spit on people. They shove people, break windows, start fights, and go out of their way to ensure that everybody has a bad day. Today's normal was a fifties liberal and, in many cases, a sixties liberal. In those days, you could be a conservative Democrat or ...

War Is a Racket — And so Is The State
Post Date: 2018-07-30 08:06:30 by Deckard
In past writings Ive attempted to show that the majority of the social problems experienced throughout the world poverty, war, economic collapse, famine, hyperinflation, genocide, unilaterally broken agreements can be traced to the dominant form of social organization under which we live: the State. Simply put, states are bullies that collect their revenue through theft and manage their populations through threats of punishment. They use other incentives, such as tax breaks, but their existence depends on keeping their populations fearful of reprisals. Of course they dont want to be seen as thieves or bullies they want our allegiance. So, ...
Secretary Mattis, here's a roadmap to peace in the Middle East
Post Date: 2018-07-28 15:49:45 by Hondo68
Getty Images If you had five minutes to speak before the secretary of Defense, what would you say?At this point, Im sure, if Gen. James Mattis is reading this, he is probably muttering to himself: Here we go again. You see, every time I run into the secretary of Defense, I try my best to make the point that weve been at war too long in too many places.Gen. Mattis, as well as the head of NATO, the head of the UN, and virtually every voice of reason in the foreign policy world, acknowledges that there is no military solution to the unending Afghan War.For that matter, most agree that there is no military solution to the Syrian civil war or the Yemeni civil war. And ...
Was Jesus a Socialist?
Post Date: 2018-07-27 09:46:20 by Deckard
Was Jesus a socialist? Was he revolting against wealth and money itself? Or was he actually challenging people who use the violence of the state to prosper? I have my own working framework for how to apply Jesuss role model in politics and economics. Nevertheless, I recently spoke with fellow-travelers theologian David Bentley Hart (view our discussion here) and economist Jerry Bowyer (watch the interview here) to invite critical dialog for our society. Dr. Hart and Bowyer share my interest in the late René Girards sweeping anthropological account for the origins of collective violence. Girard posits that humans ape their neighbors desires which leads to contagious ...
Rush Limbaugh: Gets It Right Again!
Post Date: 2018-07-26 11:00:17 by IbJensen
Rush Limbaugh: I think the vast differences in compensation between victims of the September 11 casualty and those who die serving our country in Uniform are profound.... No one is really talking about it either, because you just don't criticize anything having to do with September 11. Well, I can't let the numbers pass by because it says something really disturbing about the entitlement mentality of this country. If you lost a family member in the September 11attack, you're going to get an average of $1,185,000.... The range is a minimum guarantee of $250,000, all the way up to $4.7 million.... If you are a surviving family member of an American soldier killed in action, ...

President Trump is known as a populist president who was elected by appealing to the forgotten man (and woman) the hard-working, taxed-to-death middle class people whose interests are usually diametrically opposed to the political elites of both parties. The label of populism seems especially appropriate with regard to his foreign policy of pursuing peace with Russia and North Korea, judging by the vicious and apoplectic reaction to it by the deep state elite, some of whom have called for the presidents execution for treason. You know an American president is doing the right thing when he is so viciously attacked by the James Gang ...
IMPORTANT: Clapper throwing Obama under the bus is an extremely important development

REX @_ImperatorRex_ July 24, 2018 1. IMPORTANT: Clapper throwing Obama under the bus is an extremely important development. Remember, though: he ISN'T referring to the FISA fraud being exposed 24/7, or the Mueller clownshow. The scandal Clapper's referring to is MUCH worse than either. Some thoughts. https://twitter.com/USRussiaReset/status/1021397305608622086 alan watson @USRussiaReset James Clapper admits to Anderson Cooper that #Obama set off the sequence of events that led to the Mueller investigation. Obama is guilty of meddling in our sacred democracy. 2. The FISA fraud being exposed is, without a doubt, the most shocking abuse of power in US history. The FBI/DOJ ...
No Doubt About It: The Deep State Is Real and Trump Is Its Latest Tool
Post Date: 2018-07-24 11:29:19 by Deckard
Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government, owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. ― Theodore Roosevelt There are those who would have you believe that President Trump is an unwitting victim of the Deep State. And then there are those who insist that the Deep State is a figment of a conspiratorial mind. Dont believe it. The Deep Statea.k.a. the police state, a.k.a. the military industrial complex, a.k.a. the surveillance state complexdoes indeed exist and Trump, far from being its sworn enemy, is its latest tool. When in doubt, follow the money trail. It always points the way. ...
What it Means to be a Law Enforcer . . .
Post Date: 2018-07-23 09:25:53 by Deckard
It is no accident that police have become more brutal in appearance as well as action since they became law enforcement.The term itself is a brutal syllogism. The law exists and must be enforced because it is the law. I am just doing my job, only following (lawful) orders. People were hanged for using such reasoning to justify the enforcement of vicious, evil laws and went to the gallows baffled as to why.Victors justice, they called it. And perhaps they were right, if a bit prematurely.Todays defendants well, one hopes that they will be that, one day are just as guilty in kind if not degree.They enforce the laws. All of them. They do not question ...
Humanity Crucified on a Cross of Iron - Eisenhower
Post Date: 2018-07-19 15:55:41 by Deckard
A few people remember President Dwight Eisenhowers Farewell Address, where he warned Americans about the rise of a military-industrial complex
a warning that was stunningly accurate and almost fully ignored. What almost no one remembers was Eisenhowers speech in 1953, when he said that under the pressures of fear and war spending, humanity was hanging from a cross of iron. Bear in mind, this was said by Dwight David Eisenhower, five-star general who had been supreme allied commander. He was also the sitting president of the United States when he said it. So, there is absolutely no room for passing this off in the name of patriotism. Precisely What He Said ...
The Eruption of the Shills

shill: A person paid to endorse a product favorably, while pretending to be impartial. If ever you wanted confirmation that ruling structures are biased toward conflict, you got it over the past two days.If ever you wanted confirmation that public intellectuals jump to obey power, you got it over the past two days. As much as I avoid the bullhorns from New York and DC, I couldnt escape them this time. Evidently Donald Trump had a summit with Vladimir Putin and uttered unspeakable words. After Putin denied interfering in the 2016 election, Trump said this: He just said its not Russia. I will say this, I dont see any reason why it would be. And from that, all hell broke ...
If You Value The Reputation Of Your Restaurant, Maybe You Should Stop Serving Cops
Post Date: 2018-07-19 11:33:52 by Deckard
from the time-to-start-kicking-against-the-pricks dept Cops lie. This is a fact. As a business owner, it is in your best interest to oust known liars from your premises, if only for liability reasons. Sure, this will result in backlash from cop supporters, but so will the alternative. Cops have placed themselves on a plateau of humanity far above their fellow citizens. Any perceived slight becomes a reason to drape themselves in an appropriated American flag and decry the masses for failing to show them the respect they feel they have no duty to earn. There have been several reports of low-wage fast food employees saying and/or doing mean things to cops in their restaurants. Sometimes, ...

Brazile, Rice, Obama Gave Russian Hackers Free Rein

Brazile, Rice, Obama Gave Russian Hackers Free Rein By Daniel John Sobieski American Thinker July 17, 2018 The conveniently timed indictments of 12 more Russians by Deputy A.G. (or should we just face reality and ditch the word "deputy"?) Rosenstein, who will never see the inside of an American courtroom, probably includes the Russian who "hacked" into John Podesta's email account secured with the password "password." Rosenstein was no doubt pleased with himself to announce that 12 Russian spies were caught er, spying, on President Obama's watch, by the way, but neglected to include one small detail in his announcement namely, that DNC ...
The irrational hysteria over Trump and Putin [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2018-07-17 16:30:22 by nolu chan
The irrational hysteria over Trump and Putin By Steve McCann American Thinker July 17, 2018 I spent a good part of yesterday watching the vast army of those incapable of generating an original thought namely, the majority of talking heads on radio and television as well as politicians in both parties, droning on about the disaster that was the Trump-Putin press conference in Helsinki. Once the first narrative was proffered by one of this gaggle, the rest dutifully repeated the talking points as if they were ventriloquist dummies. The bottom line: Trump is a buffoon inalterably subservient to the puppet master, thus betraying his country. Having watched the press conference, I did ...
John Brennan Misses Communist Russia [Full Thread]

Special Report John Brennan Misses Communist Russia George Neumayr American Spectator July 17, 2018, 12:05 am He calls Trump a dupe, but Brennan actually was one for the Soviets. John Brennans anti-Trump tweets grow more and more maniacal. His latest tweet holds that Donald Trumps Russian diplomacy in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of high crimes & misdemeanors. It was nothing short of treasonous. That tells people all they need to know about the unseriousness of the lefts impeachment drive, not to mention exposing once again the demented malice behind the Obama administrations spying on the Trump campaign.
