London’s Fascists and America’s Warmongers Dominated the Sunday News Cycle

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The fascists come out into full view in Jolly Old England. – As London has suffered through its radical Islamic-driven epidemic of knife killings over the last few years, I have occasionally joked here and on Twitter (@GDBlackmon) that the next thing you know, they’ll be banning knives in England.  Over the weekend, any further joking on that subject became moot, as London’s Mayor, Sadiq Khan, took to his own Twitter feed to issue the following edict:

When free societies force their law enforcement officials to behave as if they are incredibly stupid and have no means of identifying the real threat – all in the name of political correctness, of course – the “solution” inevitably ends up being that everyone ends up being treated as a threat.

We see this in our airport “security” measures, in the name of which we regularly witness the spectacle of Homeland Security officials patting down small babies and 90 year-old great grandmothers.

We see this happening in Parkland, Florida, where the school kids are now forced to use see-through backpacks by school and law enforcement officials intent upon continuing their policies of refusing to enforce the law against student criminals.

We see this in our regular gun control debates that invariably take place in the wake of mass shootings, shootings that almost always are committed by unstable individuals with long histories of interactions with law enforcement officials.

Of course, the politically-correct goal in all of these and many other instances in our idiotic society is to force law enforcement to treat every individual as if we are all equal threats, even though those officials have all sorts of means of identifying and acting against real threats if they were just allowed by law to do so.  But because those means might offend someone, everyone must be placed at higher risk.

The reality is that political correctness, and worshiping at the altar of some fool’s notion of “diversity” at any cost leads inevitably to the rise of fascism.  You don’t have to believe me, all you have to do is spend 15 minutes Googling “college campus political correctness” and browsing through the thousands of articles documenting “safe spaces”, the shutting down of any speech that might accidentally offend someone, classes and seminars that blame every evil in the world on white males, and on and on and on.

The notion of fascism has always been portrayed by our left-wing fake news media and entertainment industry as somehow coming out of the political right.  The truth is that fascism is and always has been the inevitable outcome of political leftism.

The fascists have come out into full view in Western Europe, as leftist leaders in England, Germany, France, Sweden and elsewhere implement policies to allow Europe’s native cultures to be overwhelmed and ultimately destroyed by radical Islam.  If you think that can’t come to the United States, well, just wait until the next time we decide to put a Democrat in the White House, and see what happens.  It won’t take long at all.

Four days after President Donald Trump instructed Defense Secretary James Mattis to present him with a plan to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria, dozens of people were killed in a chemical attack on the town of Douma.  As the Administration rushed to blame Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad for the attack – and the Russians for somehow facilitating it – all the usual suspect warmongers like Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins and John McCain rushed to the nearest TV camera or Twitter feed to advocate for not just keeping the U.S. military in Syria, but going to an all-out war footing there.

Senator Graham was so excited at the prospect of sending thousands of additional U.S. military personnel into harm’s way during a series of Sunday morning TV interviews that he could barely contain his glee.  He and McCain and Collins have truly never met a Middle Eastern civil war in which they did not want to involve America’s armed forces.

It was painfully obvious that none of them – nor any of the army of talking-head warmongers in the fake news media – took a moment to reflect on the incredibly convenient timing of this chemical attack, or to assess what possible motive Assad – or especially Putin – would have to commit such an atrocity less than 96 hours after President Trump had expressed his desire to get America’s military personnel safely out of that hellhole.  They never gave any consideration to the possibility that this atrocity might have actually been committed by Syrian rebels desperate to keep the U.S. involved in the theater, given that they have been losing badly in the conflict.

But this is not just about Syria here in the U.S.  All of these people – along with the entire Democrat Party and most of the fake news media – have been aggressively pushing President Trump into a war posture with Russia since even before he took office last year, forcing the President to abandon his goal of improving relations with Putin.  They no doubt leapt with joy Sunday evening as reports of missile strikes on Syria began to come across the news wires, thinking their tireless warmongering had already resulted in action by the Trump Administration.

The U.S. military denies it had anything to do with the air strikes, even though Syrian state television initially claimed otherwise.  Russia and Syria later accused Israel of conducting the attacks, which could be the case, since Israel has carried out air strikes into Sryia whenever they perceived a threat to their own country’s security.  As if this writing, the Israeli military has had no comment, but we will probably find out who conducted the bombing, or if it indeed even took place.

But back to the point of all of this, and that is that every thinking American ought to be taking a moment today to reflect on the fact that all these warmongers – which includes the neo-conservative element in the GOP, virtually the entire Democrat Party, and almost the whole of the nation’s fake news media – have spent the last 15 months doing everything they can to push President Trump into an increasingly aggressive and openly hostile posture towards Russia.

Isn’t it time we as a society started demanding these people tell us why that is?

Just another day in warmongering America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 4.10.2017

  • I’m old enough to remember when they actually played music.:  It seems the only way the Dixie Chicks can sell records is to send their obnoxious lead singer, Natalie Maines, out there to bash a Republican president.  During the height of the Iraq War, Ms. Maines issued her complaints about George W. Bush during the group’s concert events in Europe.  They can’t attract an audience anymore, so now Ms. Maines has resorted to social media, issuing nasty tweets to President Trump.  My goodness.
  • This is Jerry Brown, “skillfully” stealing and spending other people’s money.:  After the California legislature passed yet another massive tax increase on the state’s beleaguered residents – this time in the form of a major raise in the gasoline tax – the fake reporters at the Associated Press published a piece with the headline “California’s gas tax hike shows governor’s political skill”.  Presumably, when the AP publishes a future fake news item about all the businesses and residents who abandon the Golden State as a result of its soul-crushing tax burden, it will carry the headline “California’s mass exodus shows governor’s relocation skill”.
  • Ok, well, maybe it was two lone wolves.  Oh, wait…:  Islamic terrorists killed at least 44 Christians in two separate church bombings on Palm Sunday.  Fake reporters and fake editors all over the U.S. fake news media were left feverishly scrambling to find a way, some way, to blame it all on their cherished “lone wolf.”  Meanwhile, ISIS yet again took full credit for this latest atrocity.
  • The liberal Boogeyman speaks.:  Russia announced on Sunday that it would respond to any further U.S. military actions against the Syrian government with military action of its own.  This left fake reporters and fake editors all over the fake U.S. news media scrambling to invent a rationale to credit Russia’s statement to it’s cherished “Trump/Russia” coordination fantasy.
  • Hey…did Vlad sign off on this?:  Meanwhile, the Trump Administration put Syrian dictator Bashar Al-Assad on notice that it will take further military action should Syria again resort to the use of chemical weapons.  Contrary to the belief of the fake news media, Vladimir Putin was not consulted prior to the issuance of that notice.
  • Beware of praise coming from ghouls.:  In an appearance on Fox News on Sunday, war-mongering Senator Lindsey Graham said  “I would say this about President Trump, I’m proud of him.  He did something Obama did not do and if I’m North Korea I’m going to think differently about Trump.  He didn’t draw a red line, he just acted.”  That’s all well and good, but we should all hope that the President takes any praise coming from the Graham/McCain war hawk faction of the U.S. Senate as a reason to even more carefully review everything that he’s planning to do in the Middle East.  It’s one thing to bomb an air field in retaliation for a chemical weapons atrocity, but these guys want to send 200,000 U.S. men and women into another country’s civil war, and that is a different thing entirely.

Just another day in Red Line Enforcing America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 4.9.2017

  • All of the City of Dallas’s 156 emergency warning sirens were hacked and activated dozens of times Friday evening, setting off near-panic among some of the city’s citizens.  Not one of the local network affiliate TV stations, whose weather people regularly interrupt prime time programming whenever three or four drops of rain start to fall, chose to break into their prime time programming to inform their viewers that there was nothing to worry about.  Indeed, the only information the public received before Saturday morning on the situation came from a Tweet from the local FBI office.  Your fake news media in action.
  • In a predictably softball interview with the fake NY Times reporter Nicholas Kristoff this week, The Most Corrupt Woman in America predictably blamed a whole bunch of other people for her loss last November.  Taking a share of the blame were our bi-polar FBI Director, James Comey; WikiLeaks; the “weaponization of information”, whatever that means; Bernie Sanders; and of course, the Democrats’ favorite boogeyman, the RUSSIANS!!!!!!!!!  She of course did not blame her incompetent campaign manager John Podesta, who basically made his email account public by falling for an amateurish phishing email.  Nor did she blame the outrageous behavior of supporting celebrities like Lena Dunham, Miley Cyrus, Samuel L, Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, Alec Baldwin and Amy Schumer, who all worked very hard to alienate middle America’s blue collar workers.  And of course she did not blame herself, her own incompetence, her abject lack of appeal as a candidate, her horrible speaking style, her stupid tactical decisions, her illegal email activities, and her pathological lying.  But of course, that last part explains everything, doesn’t it?
  • Hey, remember Friday, when Swedish officials predictably announced (it’s part of the playbook now) that the Islamic terrorist who drove his truck through a crowd and murdered four people was a “lone wolf”?  Yeah, that was a lie.  They arrested another guy yesterday.  Didn’t publicize it, hoping no one will notice.  This is how law enforcement all over the free world deals with Islamic terrorism now – lies and wishful thinking.  That is a recipe for cultural suicide.
  • Former President George W. Bush wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post on Friday, appealing to President Trump to not cut funding to the African AIDS assistance program that he initiated while president.  No word why the former president felt the need to make his appeal via the fake news media, when he surely had a phone available to him.
  • Tired of winning yet?  ICE officials announced a 250% increase in arrests of illegal aliens with violent criminal records, apprehending 368 in a single week (including 153 in Texas), with a focus on “members of the violent MS-13 gang and illegals charged with sex crimes against kids.”  Progressives all over the nation were horrified by this news.  Which is why you  should never even think about becoming a progressive.
  • Meanwhile, President Trump’s summit meeting with Chinese leader Xi went extremely well, with the U.S. President and first family receiving high praise in the Chinese media.  Progressives everywhere are horrified by this news as well.

Just another day in Never Become a Progressive America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 4.8.2017

  • Airing the UN’s dirty laundry in the light of day.  What a concept.:  Nikki Haley is turning out to be the iron lady of the Trump Administration in her role as Ambassador to the United Nations.  In the wake of President Trump’s decision to bomb a Syrian facility that was allegedly the source of the Sarin gas that was used to murder hundreds of Syrians early in the week, Russia requested an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council, which the U.S. currently chairs.  Bolivia, likely acting as a Russian proxy, requested the meeting be held in closed session.  Ambassador Haley immediately denied that request, stating “Any country that chooses to defend the atrocities of the Syrian regime will have to do so in full public view, for all the world to hear.”
  • Someone get this man a straight jacket!:  Meanwhile, over at MSNBC, the certifiable craziness launched into the realm of full-fledged lunacy last night.  Lawrence O’Donnell, one of the fake new network’s fake hosts, was appearing with Rachel Maddow, the network’s star fake host.  One can only assume that they had to fill the time with one another because no one else wanted to become infected with their communicable insanity.  Anyway, during the course of their ranting about the Syria bombing, O’Donnell floated his belief that the use of chemical weapons was in fact orchestrated by none other than…wait for it…wait for it…VLADIMIR PUTIN, so that his great friend, Donald Trump, could then bomb Syria and thus have his public approval ratings in the polls go up.  I swear – I SWEAR – I didn’t make that up.  You can find the video on YouTube if you don’t believe me.
  • Speaking of lunatic leftist conspiracy theories, another of the newest about President Trump – which somewhat amazingly does NOT involve the boogeyman Putin – is that the President, who has a degree from the prestigious Wharton School of Business, has created and run hundreds of businesses and somehow managed to become a billionaire in the process during his life, is “functionally illiterate” and “can barely read.”  The sole source of this latest bit nitwitery is a struggling, attention-seeking, former Saturday Night Live cast member named Taran Killam.  Here is a link to the story, which ran in the very appropriately-named Internet fake news site “BoingBoing”.  That is, of course, the sound the brain of your average progressive lunatic makes as it bounces around in their tiny, thick skull.
  • Whew!  That was hard!  Let’s go on a boondoggle!:  Mitch McConnell and his Senate majority finally got a little real work done this week, dumping the anachronistic filibuster for Supreme Court nominees and getting the incredibly qualified Neil Gorsuch confirmed to fill the vacancy on the Court.  Having almost broken a sweat in getting that done, the Senate will next take a completely undeserved two week vacation.
  • But judge, he kept overheating!:  The New York Post reports that a Delaware woman was sentenced to 40 years in prison for putting anti-freeze in her husband’s steroids, killing him in the process.  Can there be any doubt that Lawrence O’Donnell is preparing a monologue for his next show in which he blames the woman’s actions on the ongoing conspiracy between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin?
  • This guy watches too much MSNBC.:  If you wonder what motivates today’s progressives to maintain their perpetual state of outrage about literally everything, here is a quote from British author Theodore Dalrymple that captures it perfectly:  “Outrage is a substitute for religion: It convinces us that our existence has some kind of meaning or significance beyond itself, that is to say beyond the paltry flux of day-to-day existence, especially when that existence is a securely comfortable one. Therefore we go looking for things to be outraged about as anteaters look for ants. Of all emotions, outrage is not only one of the most pleasurable but also one of the most reliable.”

Just another day in Perpetual Outrage America.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 4.7.2017

  • See that red line?  It means something now.:  President Trump’s decision to bomb a Syrian airfield where chemical weapons were allegedly being manufactured with 59 Tomahawk missiles late Thursday sends a message to the Syrian government, the Iranians, the Russians and even the goofy little fat guy over in North Korea the days of bold talk and no action from the United States government ended on January 20.  The ‘red line’ which Barack Obama fecklessly failed to enforce for half a decade was crossed yet again on Monday, and this President has now enforced it, the first time that has happened.  That part is good.
  • It’s what these fellows call ‘a good start.’:  The Republican war hawks in the Senate – John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio – were gleeful over the President’s action, and all see it as just a first step towards a massive escalation of the U.S. presence in the Syrian civil war.  In the past, all three of these guys have advocated placing hundreds of thousands of U.S. troops on the ground  in that god-forsaken place half a world away, so that they can have their long-desired military confrontation with Vladimir Putin.  This despite the unarguable reality that the United States of America has no discernible national security interest in the outcome of the Syrian civil war.  There is no good reason why our military families should yet again begin experiencing the anguish of seeing their sons and daughters coming back from the Middle East en masse in body bags, or with missing limbs and other horrible injuries. It’s never a good thing when the warmongers are happy.
  • Somebody please tell us, who are the “good guys” in Syria?:  For five long years, Barack Obama was never able to clearly identify to the American people who exactly our country was seeking to put into power in Syria.  Who exactly are the “good guys” over there?  Does anyone know?  Are John McCain, Marco Rubio and Little Lindsey ready to clearly and unambiguously identify exactly who it is among the warring factions in that country – all of whom have committed atrocities during this conflict – that the United States wants to take responsibility for placing into power at the cost of hundreds of billions of our national treasure and no telling how many American lives?  Let’s all pray that President Trump is demanding all of his neo-con advisors to provide him with that information before he is willing to escalate the U.S. military presence in yet another Middle East civil war.  It’s an ugly thing to get involved in another country’s war when we don’t even know who our preferred winner might be.
  • Yet another Obama-era “Big Lie” is exposed.:  Back in 2014, Barack Obama and his moron Secretary of State, John Kerry, went around the world bragging that their vaunted diplomatic efforts had brought an end to the Syrian government’s chemical weapons program, and that all such weapons had been eliminated.  The fake news media praised the two most dishonest people ever to occupy high office in this country for weeks and months afterwards for their bold action.  Yeah, that was just another Obama disinformation campaign.  It’s always a good thing when the sad, ugly truth about the Obama years is exposed to the light of day.
  • Oh, yeah, about that whole Supreme Court thing…:  In other news, Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republican majority exercised the “nuclear option” and voted to eliminate the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees.  Many are sad that the unprecedented Democrat partisan filibuster of a Supreme Court nominee made that necessary, but we shouldn’t be.  The filibuster is only a useful tool of governance when the two parties are willing and able to work with one another to ultimately find common ground on issues.  That all went away when Bill Clinton was elected to the presidency, and the Democrats as a party adopted their “ends justify the means” efforts to acquire and maintain power.  It just took the Senate Republicans 25 years to figure out that had happened.  When one major party no longer even recognizes any authority or institution that does not fit its political purposes, then the filibuster is worthless.  Hopefully, the Republicans will also eliminate it for legislation sometime soon.  Its time has passed.

Just another day in “red line” enforcing America.

That is all.
