Biden Calls Off Sending Two Warships to Black Sea, Putin Closes Off Kerch Strait in Response…You Call This a Strong Foreign Policy?

Newsmax.com reports that

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday announced Russia would be closing off the Kerch Strait to foreign warships until fall following President Joe Biden’s announcement he would stop two U.S. warships headed to the area in an effort to lessen tensions, the New York Post reported.

Biden said Thursday that “now is the time to de-escalate” after he had announced sanctions on Russia tied to the SolarWinds hack that the United States blames on Russia and on Russia’s continued presence in Crimea, which was seized from Ukraine in 2014.

Biden described the sanctions, which are aimed at the Russian economy and dozens of individuals, as a “measured and proportionate” response to Moscow’s hostile actions against the United States.

The Biden administration had planned to send two destroyers — the USS Roosevelt and the USS Donald Cook — to the Black Sea over Russia’s continued military presence in Ukraine. But Moscow on Tuesday responded the United States should keep out of the area “for their own good.”

The Kerch Strait will be closed from next week until October, the Ukraine foreign ministry said Thursday.

Biden said that during a phone call earlier this week he was “clear with President Putin that we could have gone further” but added that Washington is “not looking to kick off a cycle of escalation and conflict with Russia.”

Biden said that with direct communication between him and Putin they could establish “a more effective relationship” and that the Kremlin leader “agreed” with this.

Biden’s proposed summit with Putin, which he said could take place “this summer in Europe,” would be a chance to “launch a strategic stability dialogue.”

Putin has not yet responded to the invitation but Biden said “our teams are discussing that possibility right now.”

Biden said there were “critical global challenges that require Russia and the United States to work together, including reining in nuclear threats from Iran and North Korea, ending this (coronavirus) pandemic globally, and meeting the existential crisis of climate change.”

Biden said he’d challenged Putin on Russia’s invasion of part of Ukraine and current massing of troops on another part of the border.

“I affirmed U.S. support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and I strongly urged him to refrain from any military action.”

However, Biden was less clear about U.S. policy over the almost complete Nord Stream 2 pipeline which is due to funnel Russian natural gas to Germany, while bypassing the existing export route through Ukraine.

There is a strong push in the United States to cripple the project with sanctions and prevent its completion, out of fear that it will give Moscow a dangerous grip on the energy supplies of U.S. allies in Europe.

However Thursday’s package of sanctions made no mention of Nord Stream 2 and Biden, when asked by a reporter, said it was “a complicated issue.”

“That still is an issue that is in play,” he added, without further explanation.

Uh huh.

I am old enough to remember when our enemies thought twice about challenging the President of the United States.

Oh, wait…that was only 4 months ago…when we actually had a President of the United States of America, instead of a marionette whose strings are being pulled by others behind the scenes.

Don’t you know that our enemies are laughing and rubbing their hands with glee over the fact that #DementiaJoe is sitting in the White House instead of President Donald J. Trump?

Let’s face it, boys and girls, the Biden Crime Family is owned lock, stock, and barrel by Communist China.

Biden is never going to challenge them on the World Stage.

Considering the Hunter Biden Scandal involving the Bidens and Ukraine, I am surprised that Biden backed away from standing up to Putin.

At this point, as his dementia advances, Biden is lucky to be able to string two sentences together, much less conduct any sort of Foreign Policy Negotiations with another World Power who has a string leader like Putin.

Considering who I believe is pulling Biden’s strings, it is no surprise that his failing Foreign Policy is reminiscent of that of the Obama Administration’s.

If you’ll remember the fiasco that was Foreign Policy under Obama, you will remember that the Middle East was on fire and Russia and China ran over us like a tank over a Coke can.

Biden will start talking about “drawing a red line in the sand”, next.

Russia, China, North Korea, and the “Rodney Dangerfield” President

See the source image

I don’t get no respect – Rodney Dangerfield

FoxNews.com reports that

Russian President Vladimir Putin challenged President Biden to an on-air conversation to discuss Biden’s latest warning that Putin would “pay a price,” following a report containing evidence of attempted Russian-interference in the 2020 election.

“I’ve just thought of this now,” Putin told a reporter in Moscow Thursday. “I want to invite President Biden to continue our discussion, but on the condition that we do it actually live. But with no delays, directly in an open, direct discussion.”

Putin said that as the world’s two leading superpowers, he thought the dialogue would prove interesting for the U.S. and Russian people, as well as for the international community.

Biden made headlines this week after an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, when the president was asked if he thought Putin was a “killer,” to which he answered “I do.”

Putin responded Thursday by saying, “It takes one to know one.”

The White House did not immediately return Fox News’ questions on whether Biden intends to speak publically with Putin.

In a press briefing Thursday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki, when asked by reporters if Biden regretted his remarks, Psaki said, “Nope.”

“The president gave a direct answer to a direct question,” she added.

Putin suggested holding the live conversation as soon as Friday or Monday, adding that he wants to “relax a little” this weekend by heading to the forested region in northern Russia, known as the tiaga.

“We are ready any time that is convenient for the American side,” he added.

A declassified report released Tuesday by the U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence, found that while no foreign powers “manipulated any election results,” Russia sought to influence public opinion in opposition of Biden.

“The price he is going to pay, well, you’ll see shortly,” Biden threatened.

Russia recalled its ambassador to the United States following the president’s remarks.

Meanwhile, Newsmax.com reported that

Top U.S. and Chinese officials offered sharply different views of each other and the world on Thursday as the two sides met face-to-face for the first time since President Joe Biden took office.

In unusually pointed remarks for a staid diplomatic meeting, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Chinese Communist Party foreign affairs chief Yang Jiechi took aim at each other’s country’s policies at the start of two days of talks in Alaska.

The contentious tone of their public comments suggested the private discussions would be even more rocky.

The Chinese foreign affairs chief slammed Biden, remarking…

“We believe that it is important for the United States to change its own image and to stop advancing its own democracy in the rest of the world,” he said. “Many people within the United States actually have little confidence in the democracy of the United States.”

And, finally, CNBC.com reported that

The powerful sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un sent an eerie message to the United States on Tuesday, as Biden administration officials arrive for high-level talks in Japan and South Korea.

“We take this opportunity to warn the new U.S. administration trying hard to give off [gun] powder smell in our land,” Kim Yo Jong said in a statement referencing joint U.S. and South Korean military exercises in the region.

“If it [the U.S.] wants to sleep in peace for the coming four years, it had better refrain from causing a stink at its first step,” she added, according to an English translation.

Other that that, the entire world loves and respects Sleepy Joe.

Yeah, right.

I really do not know what Biden’s Handlers and the Democrat elite think that they are accomplishing by using dementia-riddled, doddering old Joe Biden as a puppet sitting in the Oval Office.

Putin just told the entire world that Biden is impaired and could not possibly handle a live discussion with him.

Then, the Chinese foreign affairs chief hit the nail on the head when he made his comment about the lack of “confidence in the democracy of the United States”, a veiled reference to the 2020 Presidential Election, which was stolen by the Democrats.

And finally, Kim Jong Un’s crazy sister out-and-out threatened us.

Our enemies do not respect Biden the way that they did President Trump.

How could they?

They watched the videos of his campaign and his appearances then and now, as President.

They see how frail and impaired that he has become.

Their intelligence agencies have, no doubt, uncovered information about this whole charade, known as the Biden Presidency, which his Handlers and the Democrat Elite are desperately trying to keep hidden from the American people.

President Ronald Reagan famously said,

When you can’t make them see the light, make them feel the heat.

There is no way that Joe Biden will ever gain the respect of our Sovereign Nation’s enemies.

Heck, even as I write this, late on Thursday evening, they are probably still laughing over him identifying his Vice-President as “President Harris” earlier today.

We are so screwed.

Trump Fires Back, Calls Former CIA Director Brennan “A Very Bad Guy”

4E5BF4AD00000578-5964479-image-a-2_1531874315085

“I think John Brennan’s completely unhinged”. – Sen. Rand Paul, “The Story”, Fox News Channel. 7/17/18

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump denied he was “pro-Russia” and slammed former CIA Director John Brennan in a Fox News interview airing Tuesday night, after the ex-intelligence chief described Trump’s news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin as “treasonous.”

“I think Brennan is a very bad guy and if you look at it a lot of things happened under his watch,” Trump told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Monday. “I think he’s a very bad person.”

The “Tucker Carlson Tonight” interview was recorded in Helsinki following the Trump-Putin news conference, at which Trump appeared to dismiss the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia meddled in the 2016 election. Trump backtracked on Tuesday, claiming he meant to say he didn’t see why Russia “wouldn’t” be responsible for the meddling.

On Monday, Brennan tweeted that Trump’s performance at the news conference “rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.'”

“Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin,” added Brennan. “Republican Patriots: Where are you???”

In his interview, Trump compared Brennan to FBI official Peter Strzok, former FBI attorney Lisa Page, former FBI Director James Comey and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

“When you watch all of the things that have happened … you look at the deception, the lies,” Trump told Carlson. “These are people that in my opinion are truly bad people, and they’re being exposed for what they are.”

When Carlson asked Trump if he considered Russia America’s greatest adversary, the president answered: “I won’t even use the word adversary. We can all work together. We can do great. Everybody can do well and we can live in peace.”

Trump also invoked the Soviet Union’s role in fighting Nazi Germany during World War II: “In World War II, Russia lost 50 million people and helped us win the war. I was saying to myself the other day, ‘You know, Russia really helped us.'”
“I’m not pro-Russia, pro-anybody,” Trump went on. “I just want to have this country be safe. … You know, Russia and the United States control 90 percent of the nuclear weapons in the world and getting along with Russia – and not only for that reason – it’s a good thing, not a bad thing.”

When President Trump described John O. Brennan as “a very bad guy”, he wasn’t kidding.

Brennan was “Deep State” before “Deep State” was “en vogue”.

Courtesy of discoverthenetworks.org,  here is a brief overview of Former CIA Director John O. Brennan…

  • Longtime CIA official

  • Served as a senior advisor to Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign

  • Said in 2009 that he was “pleased to see that a lot of Hezbollah individuals are in fact renouncing … terrorism and violence and are trying to participate in the political process in a very legitimate fashion”

  • Believes that tactics like waterboarding are not only inconsistent with “our ideals as a nation,” but also “undermine our national security” because they “are a recruitment bonanza for terrorists”

  • Explains that “jihad” means “to purify oneself or to wage a holy struggle for a moral goal”

  • Supports trials of Islamic terrorists in civilian courts rather than in military tribunals

  • In 2011, he called for the FBI to eliminate its “offensive” curriculum/training materials which made reference to “jihad” and “radical Islam.”

  • Was involved in crafting the false talking points that then-Secretary of State Susan Rice gave regarding the 9/11/12 terrorist attack against a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi

  • Was appointed as CIA director by President Barack Obama in 2013

…In 1976 he voted for Communist Party USA presidential nominee Gus Hall. As historian Ron Radosh points out, “The CPUSA at that time was dedicated to gaining support for Soviet foreign policy, with the intent of defeating the United States in the Cold War…. Moscow regularly gave Hall thousands of dollars to enable the Communists in America to carry on their work.” Brennan has explained that his motivation for supporting Hall was that he (Brennan) was unhappy “with the system” and saw the “need for change.”

…In September 2012, Brennan was involved in crafting the false talking points that then-Secretary of State Susan Rice gave regarding the 9/11/12 terrorist attack against a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. Specifically, Rice claimed that according to the “best information at present,” the deadly attack was not premeditated, but rather, a “spontaneous reaction” to “a hateful and offensive video that was widely disseminated throughout the Arab and Muslim world.”

…On January 7, 2013, President Obama nominated Brennan for the position of CIA director. During his Senate confirmation hearing on February 7, 2013, he called waterboarding a “reprehensible” practice that “never should’ve taken place in my view.” “As far as I’m concerned, waterboarding is something that never should’ve been employed,” Brennan told Senator Carl Levin, “and, as far I’m concerned, never will be if I have anything to do with it.”

…In February 2013, John Guandolo, a former Marine who subsequently worked eight years in the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division as a “subject matter expert” regarding the Muslim Brotherhood and the global spread of Islam, stated that Brennan had converted to Islam years earlier in Saudi Arabia. Said Guandolo:

“Mr. Brennan did convert to Islam when he served in an official capacity on the behalf of the United States in Saudi Arabia. That fact alone is not what is most disturbing. His conversion to Islam was the culmination of a counterintelligence operation against him to recruit him. The fact that foreign intelligence service operatives recruited Mr. Brennan when he was in a very sensitive and senior U.S. government position in a foreign country means that he either is a traitor … [or] he has the inability to discern and understand how to walk in those kinds of environments, which makes him completely unfit to be the director of Central Intelligence…. The facts of the matter are confirmed by U.S. government officials who were also in Saudi Arabia at the time that John Brennan was serving there and have direct knowledge. These are men who work in very trusted positions, they were direct witnesses to his growing relationship with the individuals who worked for the Saudi government and others and they witnessed his conversion to Islam.”

As you have just read, for Former Director Brennan to call President Trump “treasonous” is the height of irony.

As seems to be the case with a lot of those who served in the hierarchy of America’s Intelligence Agencies under Former President Barack Hussein Obama, they appear to have a skewed perspective, fueled by an egomaniacal sense of self-importance, concerning what it meant to serve our Sovereign Nation and protect America’s “best interests”.

All of these “bad actors” firmly believed that it was in the best interest of themselves, first, and America, second, to stop Donald J. Trump from becoming the President of the United States of America by any means necessary.

Just as I have often referred to the “foot soldiers” of the Far Left Democrats as the “New Bolsheviks”, so these Deep State Operatives, including Brennan, who was involved in the FISA Fiasco, are all involved in this new “Russian Revolution”.

Which is another bit of irony, if you think about it, as those who are seeking to overturn the will of the American people by circumventing our Constitution and nullifying a fair election, are accusing a fairly elected President of “colluding” with the Russians, while it is they who have been “colluding” all along to overthrow a sitting government like Lenin and his followers did a century ago.

All of the hyperbole concerning Trump’s Press Conference after meeting with Putin was purposefully disseminated propaganda meant to divide the American people and to somehow bring down the President, since all of the Far Left Democrats’ schemes, including the Russia Probe itself, have failed miserably so far.

The question is, now that President Trump has explained his comments, what are the desperate Democrats and their Deep State Operatives going to try next?

The Summit Aftermath – Dems, Never-Trumpers, and RINOs, Oh, the “Concern”

 

90 (2)

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump faced harsh bipartisan criticism back home for his Helsinki press conference with Vladimir Putin on Monday, as lawmakers claimed the U.S. president missed a chance to “stand up” to the Russian president on election meddling. 

The U.S. president, for his part, called the summit with Putin “deeply productive.” After Democrats for days called on him to nix the meeting in the wake of indictments against Russian officers for U.S. campaign hacking, Trump said he would “not make decisions on foreign policy in a futile effort to appease partisan critics.” 

He cited progress on a range of issues, and said it would be a “good thing” to get along with Russia. 

However, the president angered members of both parties by saying both countries share blame for damaged relations and by not firmly standing by U.S. intelligence assessments that Russia meddled in the 2016 elections. 

Trump said he has great confidence in the intelligence community, but Putin gave a “strong and powerful” denial. He said he doesn’t “see any reason why” Russia would be behind election meddling.

“There is no question that Russia interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy here and around the world,” House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., countered. 

Others were less reserved in their response.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who has been out of Washington for months battling brain cancer, issued a blistering statement calling the performance “disgraceful.” 

“President Trump proved not only unable, but unwilling to stand up to Putin. He and Putin seemed to be speaking from the same script as the president made a conscious choice to defend a tyrant against the fair questions of a free press, and to grant Putin an uncontested platform to spew propaganda and lies to the world,” McCain said, calling the president’s comments at the press conference “a recent low point in the history of the American Presidency.”

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., another Republican often critical of the president, also blasted Trump.

“I never thought I would see the day when our American President would stand on the stage with the Russian President and place blame on the United States for Russian aggression. This is shameful,” Flake tweeted.

Trump later clarified on Twitter: “As I said today and many times before, ‘I have GREAT confidence in MY intelligence people.’ However, I also recognize that in order to build a brighter future, we cannot exclusively focus on the past – as the world’s two largest nuclear powers, we must get along!” 

Democrats, meanwhile, cranked up the volume on criticism that had already been building for days — especially after 12 Russians were indicted for allegedly hacking Hillary Clinton campaign and other Democratic groups’ emails in 2016. 

Former CIA director John Brennan, another frequent critic of Trump, went so far as to effectively accuse the president of treason. 

“Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???”

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said: “President Trump’s weakness in front of Putin was embarrassing, and proves that the Russians have something on the President, personally, financially or politically.” 

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer made similar comments, while calling on Congress to ratchet up sanctions on Russia in response to Monday’s events. 

“What the president has done is an insult to all Americans,” Schumer said. 

Trump is the first non-politician since our nation’s early days to become the President of the United States of America.

As a successful businessman, Trump has always “played the long game” and relied on a keen strategic sense in knowing how to negotiate for not just a short-term win but a long-term win as well.

I believe that is what he was doing yesterday.

If I was in Trump’s position I would not trust the hierarchy of our Intelligence Agencies, either…especially that old Commie, John Brennan.

The Washington Elite and members of the Main Stream Media showed their true colors and their Stage 4 cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome, yesterday.

The Never-Trumpers in the Republican Party joined hands with their brothers and sisters across the Political Aisle in condemning Trump in a show of unity among Professional Politicians who remain offended that a rank outsider somehow became our 45th President.

To put it bluntly, those Washington Insiders on both sides of the Political Aisle who are so offended by President Trump are the ones who put him in office.

Anger has played an important part in the forging of this great country.

It was anger that formed our country….an anger over being held captive to “Taxation Without Representation”…an anger which, as a prime example of history repeating itself, led Americans to choose a Citizen Statesman for their next President over a Professional Politician.

It is this anger, which also propelled Donald J. Trump to his victory in the Republican Primary Race…and those who prefer the Washingtonian Status Quo seem to have forgotten that fact already.

That is why the Republican Establishment, at least some of them, attacked Trump yesterday.

The funny thing is, for all of their angst and “concern” yesterday, if they had not accepted the reality of his Primary Victory, and the fact that Americans were angry, they would have gone down to defeat again in 2016.

They would have never achieved victory by once again trying to push the Jello of “Liberal Moderation” up a hill.

Hence, the failed campaign of Jeb! Bush.

The American people were tired of Political Correctness and anti-American political expediencies being forced down our throats by both political parties and trumpeted by their lackeys in the Main Stream Media.

Donald Trump, for all of his brashness and braggadocio, was a breath of free air and, quite frankly an anomaly. He was not a professional politician. He was a businessman who wanted to become a public servant.

And, so far, what he has accomplished as President has demonstrated that he was up to the challenge.

During his actions since taking office, we have seen Trump exemplify leadership ability and a concern for our country that we did not from his predecessor.

Meanwhile, those on the left are still participating in National Temper Tantrum, as if they have the power to overthrow our Constitution and to end Trump’s Presidency for no reason other than they do not like him.

And, the Never-Trumpers in the GOP Elite would gladly help them.

Unfortunately for the Deep State Operatives within our Intelligence Agencies, Special Counsel Mueller has yet to find any collusion between Trump and the Russians.

So, that will not be happening anytime soon.

And to those Republicans who would rather stand with the Democrats than stand up for a Republican President, it is time for you to go ahead and get it over with and switch parties, go stand with your Democrat Friends, and then sit down and shut up.

It’s not about what you want anymore.

It is about what us average Americans want.

After Russian Indictment, McCain and Democrats Try to Give Orders to Trump About Putin Meeting

untitled (237)

https://twitter.com/dbongino/status/1017857786569482240

FoxNews.com reports that

Sen. John McCain said Friday that the U.S.-Russia summit in Helsinki “should not move forward” unless President Trump is willing to hold Russia accountable for political meddling. This, after 12 Russian intelligence officers were indicted for allegedly hacking emails from the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party in the 2016 election. 

The Republican senator from Arizona released a statement praising the charges, which arose out of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the election.  

The 12 members belonging to the Russian Intelligence agency are accused of hacking into emails from the Hillary campaign and her party, and of leaking damaging discussions between top party members.

“Today’s indictment is a result of the hard work of America’s law enforcement and intelligence officials who dedicate their lives to bringing to justice those who wish to do us harm,” McCain, who has been sidelined while battling cancer, said in a statement.

“These revelations add to a body of evidence confirming an extensive plot by Vladimir Putin’s government to attack the 2016 election, sow chaos and dissension among the American electorate, and undermine faith in our democracy.”

McCain has been a vocal critic of Trump, recently calling his visit to the NATO summit in Brussels “disappointing.”

While not expressing outright support for the meeting with Russia, which is to take place on Monday, McCain said Thursday that that summit represented an opportunity for Trump “to demonstrate his willingness to defend America” against its adversaries.

“Putin is not America’s friend. … Putin is America’s enemy,” McCain said.

He doubled down on that sentiment on Friday, urging Trump to hold the Russian president “accountable.”

“President Trump must be willing to confront Putin from a position of strength and demonstrate that there will be a serious price to pay for his ongoing aggression towards the United States and democracies around the world,” the senator said. “If President Trump is not prepared to hold Putin accountable, the summit in Helsinki should not move forward.”

Trump and Putin will meet in their first official standalone meeting on Monday at the Presidential Palace in Finland. The pair have met twice before, on the sidelines of international meetings.

On Friday, several Democratic leaders also weighed in, in some instances urging the president to consider canceling his summit with Putin.

Sen. Mark Warner, top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, offered Trump an ultimatum for the highly anticipated summit: make Russian interference a priority, or cancel the meeting. 

I know that this has been asked numerous times before, but just whose side is Senator John “Maverick” McCain on, anyway?

Anybody with an IQ above double digits can recognize a politically-inspired indictment such as the toothless one that Mueller and Rosenstein announced yesterday coming from a mile away.

Mueller and his team’s sole purpose for conducting their investigation was supposed to be to prove that there was some sort of Russian Collusion with Republican Candidate Donald J. Trump which influenced the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election.

From the get-go, they have been investigating the Trump Campaign trying to find something…ANYTHING…that would prove that Trump snd his Campaign Staffers “colluded” with those “dirty rotten commies”.

Guess what?

Mueller and his “13 angry Democrats” haven’t found Jack, Jack.

So, gentle readers, if you were a Special Counsel who had failed so miserably in your objective and you found some evidence that the Russians, as they have probably been doing in the last several elections, were cyber-snooping on the Clinton Campaign, wouldn’t you wait for the right moment that, in your mind, would be the optimal opportunity  to somehow hurt the person that you couldn’t find squat on?

Just like Admiral James T. Kirk “vexed” Khan in the Star Trek Movie “The Wrath of Khan”, so does President Donald Trump vex Special Counsel Mueller and all of the GOP Elite RINOs like Sen. McCain.

There is a problem with Mueller’s indictment, though: It doesn’t mean a thing.

He may be able to indict those 12 Russians but how is he going to serve them?

How is he going to “bring them to justice”?

Yesterday’s announcement by Mueller and Rosenstein was, as ol’ Willie Shakespeare would say, a bunch of “sound and fury signifying nothing”.

It was announced yesterday to be a distraction and to hurt Trump’s efforts on his Foreign Policy Trip, especially his meeting with Putin.

But, that’s not going to happen.

President Trump does not answer to the Democrats or the RINOs like “Maverick”.

He answers to the average Americans who elected him President.

And, for you members of the Beltway Elite who may not have noticed, we think that he is doing just fine.

Until He Comes,

While Russian Jets Buzz Alaskan Coast, Dems’ Trump/Russia Collusion Flies Into the Sunset

a-russian-tu-95-bomber-photographed-from-a-royal-air-force-plane-off-the-coast-of-britain-in-october-2014-1120x600

My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes. – President Ronald Reagan

CNN.com reported yesterday that

US defense officials are calling recent sightings of Russian bombers off the Alaskan coast “nothing out of the ordinary” — itself an indication that both nations are toeing the line between routine military posturing and escalating provocation. On Monday, US F-22 fighter jets intercepted two Russian bombers in international airspace 100 miles from Kodiak Island, Alaska. A US military official called the interaction “safe and professional.”

Less than 24 hours later, a US surveillance aircraft responded to two Russian bombers that were spotted in the same area, this time flying 41 miles off Alaska.

The Russian aircraft did not enter US airspace in either instance and US defense officials say there was nothing unusual or confrontational about the Russians’ conduct. The US itself has carried out similar flights along both the Chinese and Russian coasts.

Moscow, for its part, said it “regularly carries out patrol missions above the neutral waters of the Arctic, the Atlantic, the Black Sea and the Pacific Ocean.”

“All such missions are carried out in strict compliance with international regulations and with respect to national borders,” the Russian Defense Ministry said in a written statement.

But this week’s encounter plays into a larger effort by Russian President Vladimir Putin “to prove Russia is back in the game,” according to Howard Stoffer, a former State Department staffer.

“This kind of cat-and-mouse stuff has been going on for a while now,” Stoffer told CNN, adding that Putin “is trying to put the US on notice that the Russians are everywhere and are back to expanding the limits of expanding their military power.”

The Viktor Leonov, a Russian spy ship, has also been spotted near the US coastline twice in recent months.

Rising tensions between US and Russia are a far cry from President Donald Trump’s optimistic campaign rhetoric of hopes for a collaborative relationship. As Trump himself said earlier this month, relations between the former Cold War foes “may be at an all-time low.”

The two nations have clashed over deeply rooted strategic differences this month.

Do you remember the great movie, “The Hunt for Red October”, starring Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin (before he became a total jerk and, in the process, unwatchable)?

Connery plays Captain Marko Ramius, a Russian Submarine Captain who commandeers The Red October, a nearly silent nuclear sub for the purpose of surrendering it to the United States. At on point, he gets on the com, and tells his unsuspecting crew:

“Once more, we play our dangerous game, a game of chess against our old adversary, the American Navy. For forty years, your fathers before you and your older brothers played this game and played it well. But today the game is different. We have the advantage.”

The Administration is right. What is happening off the coast of Alaska is a dangerous game, which has been going on for quite a while.

Speaking of dangerous games…is it just me, or have y’all noticed that the Modern American Liberal Propaganda Machine has backed off of the erroneous claim that the Russians were somehow, someway, responsible for the loss of Hillary Clinton to Donald J. Trump on November 8th, 2016?

The strategy of that whole campaign by the Democrats and their operatives in both the Main Stream Media and the Social Media, ironically enough, sprang from the philosophy of the Third Reich’s Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, who infamously said that

  • If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it.

  • If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.

  • If you repeat a lie long enough, it becomes truth.

This strategy was ironic because one of the ignorant attacks, which is still being put out there by Liberals, equates Trump to Adolf Hitler, the Leader of Germany’s Third Reich.

It’s not surprising that Liberals continue to fail.

Liberals underestimate the American People.

The Trump/Russian Collusion Story has fallen on deaf ears.

Here’s why:

  • Did the Democrats actually expect average Americans to believe that the 63 million of us who voted for Donald J., Trump were somehow made to do so by the Russians?
  • Trump carried 31 out of 50 states. Those weren’t Russians out there voting in America’s Heartland.
  • Average Americans, disgusted with the bias of the Main Stream Media, used the Social Media to spread the truth about the Democrats and their Presidential Candidate. I didn’t see any Russians showing their cat videos or influencing Americans as to how to vote on Facebook.
  • It wasn’t a Russian who called us all “Deplorables”. It was the “The Queen of Mean”, Hillary Clinton herself.

And, my final and most important bullet point…

  • Average Americans, from the Rust Belt to the Bible Belt, were familiar with Mrs. Clinton. They knew who she was and what she was. They knew that she would walk 20 miles across the scorching desert sand to tell a lie rather than step across on of Obama’s infamous Red Lines and tell the truth. Hillary has no one to blame but herself for losing the Presidency to Donald J. Trump.

Our Founding Fathers envisioned a Citizen Statesman, who after serving their country and their communities for a short period of time, would return to their homes, to their families, and to their trades.

Donald J. Trump is a prime example of this.

What Obama, Clinton, Schumer, and all of the Liberals out there still crying in their Pepsi Product of choice over watching the machinations of a Constitutional Republic in action do not want to admit, is that the Electoral Collage was put in place to prevent what they are still trying to accomplish by any means necessary: overthrowing an election in which Americans who living in the Heartland of our nation defeated a Presidential Candidate running on the favored Political Ideology of isolated Metropolitan Areas with dense populations.

The American People overthrew the “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we have suffered under for the last 8 years on November 8th.

All these displaced tyrants are accomplishing with their unsubstantiated claims against President Trump, their outlandish political machinations, and their overwhelming hypocrisy is to make average Americans, who rejected their political ideology en masse on November 8th, even madder at them, if that is possible.

The lesson which they should have learned through their defeat on November 8th is not to underestimate the American People.

You can not buy average Americans voters nor our respect.

They are not for sale.

It is time for the Leaders and MSM Minions of the Democratic Party to suck it up and move on.

Americans have had enough of their National Temper Tantrum and boundless hypocrisy.

In the cat and mouse game which they have been playing with the American People, they have now become the mouse.

Obama Issues Sanctions Against Russia for Election “Hacking”. Americans Say “Meh”. So Do the Russians.

untitled-119

President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt once advised that the best way to keep America safe, was to “Speak softly and carry a big stick”.Unfortunately for us, we are presently suffering through a president who speaks like a wuss and carries a feather pillow, a Mexican Flag, and a prayer rug.

I have written since April of 2010 about the “Great Disconnect” between Barack Hussein Obama and average Americans

Take his current Quixotic Crusade, blaming the Russians for Hillary Clinton’s loss in the Presidential Election to Donald J. Trump, for example.

Foxnews.com reports that

A majority of American voters think there was no real effect on the presidential race from Russian cyber-attacks, according to a new Fox News Poll.  

CIA officials reportedly believe Russian hackers meddled in the election to help Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton.  Yet 59 percent of voters believe the hacking didn’t make a difference.  

The poll finds 32 percent think Russia did help Trump in the election, while just one percent says the cyber-attacks aided Clinton.

President-elect Trump called the CIA’s assessment that Russia attempted to influence the election “ridiculous.”  

Voters largely do not share Trump’s mistrust of the CIA.  Two-thirds, 67 percent, have confidence in the agency:  18 percent have “a great deal” of confidence and another 49 percent have “some” confidence.  Views on the CIA have held remarkably steady, as 64 percent had confidence in 2014, and 66 percent in 2002.  Those are the only other times the question has been asked by Fox.

Meanwhile, many see Trump as too cozy with Russia.  By a wide 50-15 percent margin, voters say he’s “too accommodating” vs. “too confrontational.”   

It’s the opposite on his dealings with China, as 43 percent feel he’s being “too confrontational” vs. 17 percent “too accommodating.”  

More than 7 voters in 10 are familiar with reports Russia tried to interfere with the election (73 percent).  By a 41-1 percent margin, that group thinks the hacking helped Trump rather than Clinton, while 54 percent say it didn’t matter.  

Eighty-five percent of Republicans, 64 percent of independents, and 36 percent of Democrats think the Russians didn’t affect the outcome.  

Sixty-two percent of Clinton voters believe Russian hacking helped Trump.

Majorities of Democrats (75 percent), Republicans (63 percent), and independents (63 percent) have a great deal or some confidence in the CIA.  

The Fox News poll is based on landline and cellphone interviews with 1,034 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from December 11-13, 2016.  The poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points for all registered voters.

The Russians aren’t terribly impressed, either.

According to Independent.co.uk,

The Russian response to Barack Obama’s announcement that he was expelling 35 diplomats over the alleged cyber attack on the US election, was fast, and in some cases, rather amusing.

As officials in Moscow said that US diplomats would be ordered to leave in a tit-for-tat response, the Russian Embassy used Twitter to make its point with little panache.

“President Obama expels 35 diplomats in Cold War deja vu. Everybody, including the American people, will be glad to see the last of this hapless administration,” it said.

Mr Obama on Thursday sanctioned Russian intelligence services and their top officials, kicked out 35 Russian officials and closed down two Russian-owned compounds in the U.S. It was the strongest action the Obama administration has taken to date to retaliate for a cyberattack. 

Mr Obama on Thursday sanctioned Russian intelligence services and their top officials, kicked out 35 Russian officials and closed down two Russian-owned compounds in the U.S. It was the strongest action the Obama administration has taken to date to retaliate for a cyberattack. 

“All Americans should be alarmed by Russia’s actions,” he said. He added: “Such activities have consequences.”

In 1974, at the very first Conservative Political Action Conference, the future President of the United States said the following:

Somehow America has bred a kindliness into our people unmatched anywhere, as has been pointed out in that best-selling record by a Canadian journalist. We are not a sick society. A sick society could not produce the men that set foot on the moon, or who are now circling the earth above us in the Skylab. A sick society bereft of morality and courage did not produce the men who went through those years of torture and captivity in Vietnam. Where did we find such men? They are typical of this land as the Founding Fathers were typical. We found them in our streets, in the offices, the shops and the working places of our country and on the farms.

We cannot escape our destiny, nor should we try to do so. The leadership of the free world was thrust upon us two centuries ago in that little hall of Philadelphia. In the days following World War II, when the economic strength and power of America was all that stood between the world and the return to the dark ages, Pope Pius XII said, “The American people have a great genius for splendid and unselfish actions. Into the hands of America God has placed the destinies of an afflicted mankind.

We are indeed, and we are today, the last best hope of man on earth.

And when Reagan became president, he did everything within his power to uphold these lofty words.

I suppose that is why I hold Barack Hussein Obama in such disdain. As a young man just starting my new life in the business world, I was able to watch the economy start to turn around under the greatest president in our lifetime. There was a confidence in our strength as an American people that I had never seen before.

You could see it in people’s faces as you walked past them on the street… or at the gas station, as we all watched the price of a gallon of gas finally go down after the pain at the pump that we experienced during the Carter Presidency.

People who had been out of work and suffering along with their families were beginning to be hired again. And, young Americans who had no confidence in the previous commander in chief, were once again going to military recruiters asking to sign up to serve our country.

Yes, indeed. Once again, it was “Morning in America”.

However, the popularity of our president was not just limited to the boundaries of our nation. Reagan was admired the world over. The things that he accomplished, along with his friends, Prime Minister of Britain Margaret Thatcher, Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev, and Pope John Paul II, have caused the decade of the 1980s to be recorded as a seminal moment in world history.

I remember watching President Reagan speak at the Berlin Wall. When he said, “Mr Gorbachev tear down this wall!”, I was never prouder to be an American and of an American president, than at that moment.

The Liberal Democrats lost their collective minds.

For you see, Liberal Democrats, just as they do now, hate it when Marxism gives way to Freedom.

Nothing bothers them more than when a strong American President is at the forefront of a conquering moment, when a strong foreign policy based on the reality that negotiating from a position of strength is always more effective than negotiating from a position of weakness.

Fast forward to the present, where an ineffective President Barack Hussein Obama is looking like a spineless fool to a world, who used to look to America as a bastion of strength and freedom, not weakness and political expediencies.

President Barack Hussein Obama has placed us in untenable position with his weak and vacillating “Smart Power” Foreign Policy.

Those who used to cringe in their desert tents, while calling us the Great Satan, now laugh in our faces as they walk across our southern borders with the rest of the illegal immigrants.

That is, if Obama simply does not invite them to the White House, give them a great big ol’ hug, and meet with them, as he has the Muslim Brotherhood.

…Or, give them Nuclear Capability, as he has the Radical Islamic Rogue Nation of Iran.

And now, the Russian Bear, Vladimir Putin, is laughing at the President of the United States of America, as one would a child throwing a tantrum.

I pray that America can survive these long 22 days that follow…because then Petulant President Pantywaist and his “playmates” will no longer be in charge.

The adults will be.

Not Even Sworn in yet, Trump Already Standing Up for Israel and a Strong Foreign Policy

too-cozy-600-li-2

It’s great to have an AMERICAN President, again.

The Washington Post reports that

Before lunchtime Thursday, President-elect Donald Trump said he would expand the U.S. nuclear arsenal, upending a reduction course set by presidents of both parties over the past four decades, and called for the United States to veto a pending U.N. resolution that criticized Israel’s settlements policy.

The policy prescriptions, communicated in morning tweets, followed calls since last month’s election to reconsider the arms-length U.S. relationship with Taiwan and to let China keep an underwater U.S. vessel seized by its navy. Trump declared within hours of this week’s Berlin terrorist attack that it was part of a global Islamic State campaign to “slaughter Christians” and later said it reaffirmed the wisdom of his plans to bar Muslim immigrants.

Late Thursday, Trump suggested in another tweet that the U.S. military’s years-in-the-making plans for a new stealth fighter, Lockheed Martin’s F-35, might be reconsidered, saying he had “asked Boeing to price-out a comparable F-18 Super Hornet!”

With weeks to go before he becomes president, Trump has not hesitated to voice his opinions on national security issues of the day and to publicly advise the current president on what to do about them.

Ultimately, the nuclear statement was tempered by a Trump spokesman. And the likely fallout from a tentative decision by the Obama administration to break years of precedent and abstain on the Israel resolution was avoided when Egypt, its sponsor, abruptly postponed it just hours before a scheduled Security Council vote.

But the president-elect’s pronouncements have privately riled a White House that has repeatedly insisted in public that the transition has been smooth sailing.

Asked last week whether he was trying to help Trump, a professed admirer of Russian President Vladi­mir Putin, understand Russia’s responsibility for the civil-war carnage in Aleppo, Syria, President Obama said he would “help President-elect Trump with any advice, counsel, information that we can provide so that he, once he’s sworn in, can make a decision.”

“Between now and then,” Obama said firmly, it was up to him to decide what to do. “These are decisions that I have to make based on the consultations that I have with our military and the people who have been working this every day.”

Even as the White House has held its tongue, however, others have not.

Trump provided no details in his tweet calling for the United States to “greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability.” But “if he means what he says,” said Joe Cirincione, president of the Ploughshares Fund, a Washington-based security foundation, “this could be the end of the arms-control process that reduced 80 percent of our Cold War arsenal.”

Former congressman John Tierney (D-Mass.), executive director of the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation, said in a statement, “It is dangerous for the President-elect to use just 140 characters and announce a major change in U.S. nuclear weapons policy, which is nuanced, complex, and affects every single person on this planet.”

Under New START, the treaty negotiated by Obama with Russia and ratified by the Senate in 2010, the United States and Russia by February 2018 must have no more than 1,550 strategic weapons deployed. While there is widespread agreement that the U.S. deterrent must be modernized, little enthusiasm has been expressed elsewhere for increasing the number of nuclear warheads.

Trump spokesman Jason Miller later said that was not precisely what Trump meant. Rather than calling for more nuclear weapons, Miller told Yahoo News, he was referring to “the threat of nuclear proliferation” and “the need to improve and modernize our deterrent capability.”

The president-elect’s U.N. tweet was more explicit and more immediate. “The resolution being considered . . . should be vetoed,” he said in a pre-dawn tweet referring to the Egyptian measure. The resolution condemned “the construction and expansion of settlements” in the West Bank and mostly Palestinian East Jerusalem, along with “the transfer of Israeli settlers, confiscation of land, demolition of homes and displacement of Palestinian civilians.”

Saying the settlements have “no legal validity,” it demanded that Israel “immediately cease all settlement activities.”

Although consideration of such a measure has been circulated at the United Nations for weeks — and similar measures have for years brought a consistent U.S. veto — it was not until Wednesday night that word began to circulate that the United States might abstain and allow it to pass.

While successive administrations have considered the settlements an impediment to an Israeli-Palestinian peace process, the Obama administration has grown increasingly irate over what it feels is Israel’s flouting of its concerns.

Over the past six months, Israel has announced plans to add hundreds of units to existing settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. A July announcement that 770 new homes were to be built in the East Jerusalem settlement of Gilo drew particularly sharp U.S. criticism.

At the same time, right-wing voices in the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are pushing for legislation that would legalize settlements built on privately owned Palestinian land. The “legalization bill” stems from a court-ordered demolition of the Amona settlement, which sits on land owned by a Palestinian farmer.

Amona was meant to be demolished next week, but on Thursday it received an additional month of reprieve from the court. Residents brokered a deal with the government to move their homes to a nearby location, essentially creating a new settlement.

During the campaign, Trump frequently criticized what he described as the administration’s failure to fully support Israel. Last week, he named David Friedman — a New York bankruptcy lawyer who has given strong financial support and other backing to the Israeli settlement movement and has said Trump supports Israeli annexation of Palestinian territory — as his ambassador to Israel.

During the campaign, Trump also charged that Obama had helped promote terrorism by supporting “the ouster of a friendly regime in Egypt” — that of long-standing autocrat Hosni Mubarak — and more recently by failing to fully back the military government that overthrew Mubarak’s elected replacement.

In an interview last weekend with a Portuguese news agency, Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi said that Trump “has shown deep and great understanding of what is taking place in the region as a whole and Egypt in particular. I am looking forward and expecting more support and reinforcement of our bilateral relations.”

Once it became clear late Wednesday that the settlements vote was scheduled for Thursday afternoon, Trump officials said the transition gave the administration a “heads-up” that the president-elect was going to publicly call for a U.S. veto.

At the end of the day Thursday, it was not entirely clear what led Egypt to withdraw the resolution. At the State Department, spokesman John Kirby said that Egypt had pulled it back in order to have “discussions with its Arab League partners” over the wording of the text.

Secretary of State John F. Kerry, who supported an abstention and was clearly expecting to deliver a pre-vote speech announcing it, along with an outline of future prospects for Middle East peace, canceled his plans. Elsewhere within the administration, officials said Israel had twisted Egypt’s arm and threatened to work against its interests in Congress.

Several Arab officials said they were convinced that the United States had pressured Egypt to postpone the vote.

In Israel, where a late-night cabinet meeting was convened Wednesday to consider the possibility of a U.S. abstention, Netanyahu sent out a dead-of-night tweet calling for a U.S. veto. It was quickly followed by Trump’s own, near-identical tweet.

Deriding “the imposition of terms set by the United Nations,” Trump said in a later statement that passage of the resolution would put Israel “in a very poor negotiating position and is extremely unfair to all Israelis.”

After initial hesitation on whether Trump should weigh in, the statement was written late Wednesday by Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and an influential adviser to the president-elect, and Stephen K. Bannon, Trump’s chief strategist, according to two people briefed on the deliberation who were not authorized to speak publicly. They said that Kushner and Bannon consulted with several allies in Israel and the United States but declined to name them.

The effort represented perhaps Kushner’s most significant foray to date into foreign policy and the Middle East, where Trump has said he would welcome his son-in-law’s involvement.

After the statement was issued Thursday, a transition official told the Reuters news agency, Trump spoke by telephone with Sissi.

As I have written before, a strong American President is essential to retaining the sovereignty of our country.

As a 22-year old College Senior, I was privileged to cast my first-ever vote in a National Election. That vote took place in November of 1980, and it was for the greatest American President in my lifetime, Ronald Wilson Reagan.

The popularity of President Reagan was not just limited to the boundaries of our nation. He was admired the world over. The things that he accomplished, along with his friends, Prime Minister of Britain Margaret Thatcher, Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev, and Pope John Paul II, have caused the decade of the 1980s to be recorded as a seminal moment in world history.

I remember watching President Reagan speak at the Berlin Wall. When he said, “Mr Gorbachev tear down this wall!”, I was never prouder to be an American and of an American president, than at that moment.

Liberals, around the world, lost their collective minds.

For you see, Liberal Leaders, just as they do now, hate it when Marxism gives way to Freedom.

Nothing bothers them more than when a strong American President is at the forefront of a conquering moment, when a strong foreign policy is based on the reality that negotiating from a position of strength is always more effective than negotiating from a position of weakness.

Fast forward to the present, where an ineffective President Barack Hussein Obama was already looking like a fool, before Donald J. Trump was even elected as his successor, to a world who used to look to America as a bastion of strength and freedom, not weakness and political expediencies.

President Barack Hussein Obama has placed us in untenable position with his weak and vacillating Smart Power Foreign Policy.

Those who used to cringe in their desert tents, while calling us the Great Satan, now laugh in our faces as they walk across our southern borders with the rest of the illegal immigrants.

That is, if Obama simply does not invite them to the White House and meet with them, as he has the Muslim Brotherhood.

America must have a president who will man up and negotiate from a position of strength with both our friends and our enemies.

It appears that we have found him in President-elect Trump.

Unfortunately for our present safety as nation, Obama’s Fantasyland view of the world, which is not unlike the old Coca Cola Advertisement where everyone had a Coke and a smile, set him up to be a disastrous failure at Foreign Policy.

A failure, which finds our enemies in Iran still working on a nuclear bomb and Russian Leader Vladimir Putin beginning the process of annexing surrounding countries and rebuilding the old Soviet Union, which was dissolved, thanks to the efforts of a real leader and American President, Ronald Reagan.

The popular defense, currently being thrown against the wall to see if it sticks by Liberals on behalf of their fallen messiah’s failed Foreign Policy, is to attack those who are critical of it, by claiming that we are all of bunch of “Christianist Raaaciiist Hate Mongers”.

Obama’s Foreign Policy Failure explains the resistance of foreign leaders to the possible Presidency of Donald J. Trump before his election.

It also explains all of their donations to the Clinton Foundation.

But, I digress…

Ronald Reagan, when he was “out on the stump” for Republican Presidential Candidate Barry Goldwater, in October of 1964, delivered a powerful speech titled, “A Time for Choosing”. At one point in that now-classic speech, he spoke about America’s role in the world, stating that

We cannot buy our security, our freedom from the threat of the bomb by committing an immorality so great as saying to a billion human beings now enslaved behind the Iron Curtain, “Give up your dreams of freedom because to save our own skins, we’re willing to make a deal with your slave masters.” Alexander Hamilton said, “A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one.” Now let’s set the record straight. There’s no argument over the choice between peace and war, but there’s only one guaranteed way you can have peace — and you can have it in the next second — surrender.

…You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin — just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard ’round the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis didn’t die in vain. Where, then, is the road to peace? Well it’s a simple answer after all.

You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, “There is a price we will not pay.” “There is a point beyond which they must not advance.” And this — this is the meaning in the phrase of Barry Goldwater’s “peace through strength.” Winston Churchill said, “The destiny of man is not measured by material computations. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we’re spirits — not animals.” And he said, “There’s something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.”

You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.

We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.

Foreign Leaders, who like the advantage that they have gained, under the weak and vacillating Foreign Policy of Barack Hussein Obama, do not want the United States to regain our position as the Leader of the Free World.

And, they certainly do not want a President who will honor our friendship with our ally, Israel.

That is why they fear a Trump Presidency.

It was far more lucrative for them, when the United States “negotiated from a position of weakness”, when we had a vacillating dhimmi in the White House.

Now, they have to negotiate with an American President who has mastered “The Art of the Deal”.

…one who will place America and her best interests, first.

Isn’t that refreshing?

Wag The Dog II: Cybernetic Boogaloo: Obama Administration Planning Cyber War With Russia

exposed-600-li

Shortly before an election, a spin-doctor and a Hollywood producer join efforts to fabricate a war in order to cover up a presidential sex scandal. – “Wag The Dog” (1997) starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert DeNiro

NBCNews.com reports that

The Obama administration is contemplating an unprecedented cyber covert action against Russia in retaliation for alleged Russian interference in the American presidential election, U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News.

Current and former officials with direct knowledge of the situation say the CIA has been asked to deliver options to the White House for a wide-ranging “clandestine” cyber operation designed to harass and “embarrass” the Kremlin leadership.

The sources did not elaborate on the exact measures the CIA was considering, but said the agency had already begun opening cyber doors, selecting targets and making other preparations for an operation. Former intelligence officers told NBC News that the agency had gathered reams of documents that could expose unsavory tactics by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Vice President Joe Biden told “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd on Friday that “we’re sending a message” to Putin and that “it will be at the time of our choosing, and under the circumstances that will have the greatest impact.”

When asked if the American public will know a message was sent, the vice president replied, “Hope not.”

Retired Admiral James Stavridis told NBC News’ Cynthia McFadden that the U.S. should attack Russia’s ability to censor its internal internet traffic and expose the financial dealings of Putin and his associates.

“It’s well known that there’s great deal of offshore money moved outside of Russia from oligarchs,” he said. “It would be very embarrassing if that was revealed, and that would be a proportional response to what we’ve seen” in Russia’s alleged hacks and leaks targeting U.S. public opinion.

Sean Kanuck, who was until this spring the senior U.S. intelligence official responsible for analyzing Russian cyber capabilities, said not mounting a response would carry a cost.

“If you publicly accuse someone,” he said, “and don’t follow it up with a responsive action, that may weaken the credible threat of your response capability.”

President Obama will ultimately have to decide whether he will authorize a CIA operation. Officials told NBC News that for now there are divisions at the top of the administration about whether to proceed.

Two former CIA officers who worked on Russia told NBC News that there is a long history of the White House asking the CIA to come up with options for covert action against Russia, including cyber options — only to abandon the idea.

“We’ve always hesitated to use a lot of stuff we’ve had, but that’s a political decision,” one former officer said. “If someone has decided, `We’ve had enough of the Russians,’ there is a lot we can do. Step one is to remind them that two can play at this game and we have a lot of stuff. Step two, if you are looking to mess with their networks, we can do that, but then the issue becomes, they can do worse things to us in other places.”

A second former officer, who helped run intelligence operations against Russia, said he was asked several times in recent years to work on covert action plans, but “none of the options were particularly good, nor did we think that any of them would be particularly effective,” he said.

Putin is almost beyond embarrassing, he said, and anything the U.S. can do against, for example, Russian bank accounts, the Russian can do in response.

“Do you want to have Barack Obama bouncing checks?” he asked.

Former CIA deputy director Michael Morell expressed skepticism that the U.S. would go so far as to attack Russian networks.

“Physical attacks on networks is not something the U.S. wants to do because we don’t want to set a precedent for other countries to do it as well, including against us,” he said. “My own view is that our response shouldn’t be covert — it should overt, for everybody to see.”

The Obama administration is debating just that question, officials say — whether to respond to Russia via cyber means, or with traditional measures such as sanctions.

The CIA’s cyber operation is being prepared by a team within the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence, documents indicate. According to officials, the team has a staff of hundreds and a budget in the hundreds of millions, they say.

The covert action plan is designed to protect the U.S. election system and insure that Russian hackers can’t interfere with the November vote, officials say. Another goal is to send a message to Russia that it has crossed a line, officials say.

While the National Security Agency is the center for American digital spying, the CIA is the lead agency for covert action and has its own cyber capabilities. It sometimes brings in the NSA and the Pentagon to help, officials say.

CNN clarifies NBC’s report…

There is mounting evidence that the Russian government is supplying WikiLeaks with hacked emails pertaining to the US presidential election, US officials familiar with the investigation have told CNN.As WikiLeaks continues to publish emails belonging to Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, US officials told CNN that there is growing evidence that Russia is using the organization as a delivery vehicle for the messages and other stolen information.
 
The methods of the disclosures “suggest Moscow is at least providing the information or is possibly directly responsible for the leaks,” one US official said.
US intelligence officials are still investigating the degree of connection between Russia and WikiLeaks but they remain confident that Russia is behind the leaks themselves.
CNN attempted to reach WikiLeaks for comment but received no response. WikiLeaks’s founder, Julian Assange, has previously denied any connection to or cooperation with Russia.

Why would Obama and his administration intentionally be attempting to start a war with America’s greatest enemy less than a month out from the 2016 presidential election?

As the article states, written by Liberals to assure Liberals of how noble the Administration’s motive is, they are doing this to ensure that Russia does not “interfere” with our election process.

Which is an ironic statement, when you consider that fraud is already being discovered being committed by Democrat operatives in election precincts across America, and the election is not even here, yet.

I believe that the Administration’s excuse is a bunch of hooey.

As wild as this may sound to some of you, I believe it there are two reasons why President Barack Obama and his administration want to provoke Russia.

First, this is simply retaliation for the releasing of these emails, which the Main Stream Media is avoiding covering, which show corruption and collusion between President Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, John Podesta, and the entire Obama Administration. If covered properly by the Main Stream Media, it would ensure that Donald J. Trump would be the next president of the United States of America.

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic Party cannot allow the content of these emails to be seen by average Americans, including those who voted for the Democratic Party for decades, or their political party will vanish from the face of the Earth.

The political corruption outlined in these emails is of a magnitude not seen on this Earth since the old Soviet Union.

It is ironic that Russia has discovered the hidden Corruption of the ruling party of our government when it was the immense corruption of their own ruling party which brought down the Empire of the Soviet Union.

The second reason that I believe that this is happening now, is because the Democratic Party and Barack Hussein Obama are hedging their bets. They know that Hillary Rodham Clinton is in poor health and is weighted down by all of her own scandals. These reasons, along with the fact that she is drawing crowds that will not even fill up a high school gymnasium, are signs that she will most likely lose to Donald J. Trump on November 8th and will not be elected president of the United States of America.

If war is declared, Obama might move to suspend the election, even though that would be unconstitutional.

A wild thought I know, but, since when has that ever stopped him?

As Rush Limbaugh said, when there was speculation that Obama might suspend the 2012 Presidential Election because of the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy,

The question thus arises, can the president wave a magic wand and move the election?  What do you think, Snerdley?  Why not?  He doesn’t have the constitutional mandate.  He didn’t have the constitutional mandate for Obamacare, either.  He didn’t have the constitutional mandate to award amnesty to the kids of a million illegals, but he did it. Now, the Constitution is very clear on when presidential elections are, and to change that, you would have to amend the Constitution, and there isn’t time.  That’s not the question.  The question is, would that stop a statist like Obama?  Let me ask you this.  I want you all to just see if you can, off the top of your head, at any time in American history has anything canceled an election?  One time.  And it was a local election, and it happened on September 11th, 2001, in New York City.  Local New York City elections were suspended because of 9/11.  Those elections were not federally Constitutionally mandated. 

We had every election on schedule, on time in the Civil War, during World War I, during World War II. There hasn’t been a time.  But the question is, does that matter?  If The One wants to change the election — can you see him going on TV — I mean, after all, look who’s gonna be affected here.

…Now, of course by law, Obama cannot move Election Day. At least according to Section 7, Chapter 1, Title 2 of the US Code. I’ll read that to you: “The Tuesday next after the first Monday in November in every even-numbered year is established as the day for the election in each of the states and territories of the United States of representatives and delegates to the Congress commencing on the third day of January next thereafter.”

So he can’t move it. It’s in the Constitution; it’s in the United States Code. He cannot move the election. But it has not stopped him. The law has not stopped him in other things.

As the brilliant political cartoon by the talented A.F.Branco shows, the Main Stream Media is playing the role of the little Dutch Boy, who stuck his finger in the dam to keep his town from flooding.

However,, once again, thanks to the “New Media” and its “Citizen Reporters”, Americans are finding out the depth of Obama and Clinton’s corruption and collusion, which the DOJ and the FBI purposefully kept hidden from the American People.

If the “dam” holding back the full story contained in those e-mails busts wide open, the resulting flood of information would mean the end of Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Aspirations and, ultimately, the end of the Democratic Party, itself.

And, all those involved, including President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) cannot allow that to happen…at any cost.

Sunday Morning Thoughts: The Democrat Primaries…Hillary and Bernie…a Socialist Love Story

Final-Nail-600-LAThe results of yesterday’s “Super Saturday” showed Democrats Bernie Sanders winning in Kansas and Nebraska and Hillary Clinton taking the big prize of Louisiana.

Tonight’s Democrat Presidential Candidate Debate, live from Flint, Michigan at 8:00 p.m. EST, will feature all of the journalistic integrity of a Vladimir Putin Press Conference.

Both Hillary Clinton (The Queen of Mean) and Bernie Sanders (Doc Emmett Brown from “Back to the Future”) will continue to espouse the benefits of a Nanny-State Government, whose political philosophy is based upon Marxist Theory, through the answering of softball questions from their willing accomplices at CNN, the News Outlet that we used to refer to as the “Clinton News Network”.

Why are Far Left Democrats (which nowadays describes the overwhelming majority of the Party) so enamored of Socialist Politicians?

Merriam-webster.com defines socialism as:

…any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods

…a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state

…a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

The desensitization and placating of the Middle Class, as it was in classic Marxist Theory, is a key element of the Present and Future Platform of the Democrat Party, as it has been during the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.

By taking the ambition of the Middle Class away, by offering a “safe and comfortable” cradle-to-grave Nanny-State, “Uncle Sugar” Federal Government, the Democrat Party, ever since the launch of LBJ’s “Great Society”, have bought the loyalty of  American voters by giving them bribes of “free” money and “benefits”.

Unfortunately, as Mitt Romney alluded to during his failed bid for the Presidency, there is a great percentage of American voters who will buy and be content with this “Mother’s milk”, instead of yearning for the thrill and the challenge of the hunt for American Individual Success and Freedom.

The Marxist Ideal of

From each according to his ability, to each according to his need

has become the mantra of the Modern Democratic Party, which has become extremely adept at promising the Moon and handing out free stuff to its voting base, in order to maintain their Seats of Power and to continue to grow the Politboro, or Central Government.

Norman Matoon Thomas (1884-1968) was a six-time Presidential Candidate,  representing the Socialist Party of America.  In a campaign interview in 1948, he said the following:

The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.

Thanks to a highly politicized, propaganda-filled Department of Education, which has “dumbed down” a generation of voters, the “easy money” solution to poverty, promised by Socialists such as Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, “tickles the ears” of low information voters, the same voting bloc who continue to support Barack Hussein Obama and his failed Presidency.

Back in 2011, I got into a discussion on Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government website with some cheeto-munching, Mom’s basement-dwelling Lib with no home training, who proceeded to tell me that he would be proud to defecate on the American Flag.

If I could have reached through my computer monitor and throttled that useless, ungrateful, spoiled brat, I would have.

That “dude” was yet another example of the useful idiots of this present generation, who seem to be garnering a lot of national attention for their outrageous, disrespectful…and, yes, intolerant, behavior.

Just as we have been bearing witness for during the last few years of Obama’s Presidency, through the glorification of thugs and the vilifying of our local police departments by the Obama Administration and the local “communities” which they lay their lives on the line for, every day they put on their uniforms, the effects of LBJ’s “Great Society” on American Culture and the Black Family Unit, so are we witnessing, through the egocentric behavior of this present generation, what happens when children are left to “their own devices”, instead of being raised “in the way in which they should go”.

This explains the “Feel the Bern” Movement. (Which is a creepy-sounding slogan. But, perhaps, it’s just me...)

We are already suffering under one Far Left Socialist Whackjob, we sure as heck don’t need to follow up this present Presidential Nightmare with another.

Just as Marxism has failed wherever it has been tried before, so would it fail here.

French sociologist and political theorist Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859) traveled to the America in 1831 to study our prisons and returned to France with a wealth of broader observations that he compiled together in “Democracy in America” (1835), one of the most influential books of the 19th century. With its spot-on observations on equality and individualism, Tocqueville’s work remains a valuable explanation of America to Europeans and of Americans to ourselves.

He once observed that

Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.

In other words, the failed political ideology of socialism takes away the exhilaration and fulfillment of individual achievement and replaces it with self-sacrifice in servitude to the State, for the good of the Central  Nanny-State Government, which, in turn, promises to “share the wealth”, but, as was the case in the old Soviet Union, and more recently, Venezuela, never does.

The great Sir Winston Churchill once said that

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

I would rather be blessed than miserable.

How about you?

Mitt Romney said during his failed 2012 Presidential Campaign, that

…the American people are the greatest people in the world. What makes America the greatest nation in the world is the heart of the American people: hardworking, innovative, risk-taking, God- loving, family-oriented American people.

And. that is the main reason that Bernie Sanders, when it is all said and done, will do not any better in the Democrat Primaries than Ron Paul fared in the Republican Primaries.

Well…that and the whole “Superdelegate” thingy…

For, while there remains an element in American Society who wants their “money for nothing and their chicks for free”, there is a bigger element of our population who realize that hard work and self-sacrifice are noble things.

As the Merriam-Webster Dictionary says, socialism is “a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.”

That being said, you know why I am optimistic that the push toward socialism and ultimately, communism , will not succeed here in America?

The greatest President of the United States in my lifetime, Ronald Reagan, once quipped,

How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.

The Political Ideology of the majority of the population in America is still Conservatism.

…And, we understand Marx and Lenin.
