A World Flying Out of Control

I suggested that the Chinese government would just order their money bags to stay in the market – and I was right:

China’s securities regulator banned major shareholders, corporate executives and directors from selling stakes in listed companies for six months, its latest effort to stop the nation’s $3.5 trillion stock-market rout.

Oddly enough, right about the time this order came down the line, the New York Stock Exchange had a “technical glitch”, halting trading for a few hours. Don’t you just love completely unrelated coincidences? I know I do.

Obama may just give up on setting a dead line for the Iranians to agree to a nuke deal – I guess he figures it will take them a while to figure out just how much Obama is willing to surrender and he’s kindly giving them time to expand their wish list.

Greece is asking for a three year stay on financial execution – because if the EU just shovels more cash at Greece they’re sure to reform. Right?

Because the world is so peaceful, the Army has unveiled plans to reduce our active forces by 40,000 troops.

Russia and China are getting more buddy-buddy all the time. This is amazingly stupid on the part of Russia because only in alliance with the United States can Russia hang on to Siberia in the long term…but, meanwhile, this budding alliance is a threat to the United States. Which makes our Army reductions even more sensible. Right?

The murder rate in Baltimore has skyrocketed – so the mayor of Baltimore has fired the chief of police because Reasons.

A judge is really upset at the way the Obama Administration has just ignored court orders, lied to him and essentially gone off in a lawless manner on Obama’s amnesty program. He has ordered the offending officials to appear personally in court to explain why they shouldn’t be held in contempt of court. Problem is, these guys are already breaking the law – I doubt they’ll mind breaking it, again, by not showing up as the judge has ordered. Here’s a little secret for you, boys and girls, the Judicial can only enforce its decrees with the voluntary cooperation of the Executive…in other words, all Judicial decisions are just words on paper unless the Executive decides to give force to them. To be sure, the Executive should obey Judicial orders, but if the Executive doesn’t, the only recourse is for the Legislative to impeach the Executive, which will never happen. Our government only works when people obey the rules. Welcome to a government which doesn’t obey the rules.

ISIS is crucifying people for not obeying the requirements of Ramadan. Once again, glad or Army is being reduced by 40,000 troops.

Israel and India are drawing together – faced with a lot of the same enemies, they probably figure this will be useful…and as neither of them can count on American support…

Everyone hates Donald Trump these days. He’s a blowhard. A clown. He doesn’t do politics right. To be sure, he’s not my choice for President, but the man does have guts. He’s actually losing deals and money because he’s taking a stand. Maybe it’s the wrong stand (remember: I’m the pro-amnesty guy), but he’s taking it…a little courage is refreshing. And single-handed he has taken the discussion on illegal immigration away from the “DREAMers” and put it squarely where it belongs – on the astonishing level of criminality surrounding illegal immigration. No one really has a word to say against someone who is coming to get a job – but because we allow illegal immigration – because, that is, we’re refusing to enforce our own laws – the law-breakers have completely taken over. That horrid murder in San Francisco (by an illegal immigrant, with an illegally-obtained weapon, in a gun-free zone, in a Sanctuary City) has, I think, started to focus the public mind on the real problem – and Trump was out in front on it. The GOP should stop jumping on Trump and start challenging Democrats over their lack of support for border security.

    One of the reasons things are flying our of control is utter contempt for the law by our chief executive.

      Our Progs just don’t understand it – why we need law:

    Our country is out of control because we have Democrats and progressives who lie about everything, all the time to dupe their minions and serve themselves. The massively incompetent, and lying POS Obama is an excellent example of the problem as is hyper bitch Hillary:

    In a 2007 Democratic presidential debate, the late Tim Russert asked Clinton if she would allow sanctuary cities to disobey federal law. “Well, I don’t think there is any choice,” she answered. Immigrants may not talk to police if “they think you’re also going to be enforcing the immigration laws.”

    Yet when confronted with the reality that sanctuary policies directly led to the brutal murder of Kate Steinle, Hillary said just yesterday:

    “The city made a mistake not to deport someone that the federal government strongly felt should be deported. So I have absolutely no support for a city that ignores the strong evidence that should be acted on.”

    And yet fascist progressives will still vote for her.

      The dialog Trump started – and has stuck to, thank goodness – should make a change in these type matters.

        Trump has said some uncomfortable truths for the politicians to hear which is needed. For us though it’s simply common sense. I live at ground zero for this immigration debate and the Democrats are clueless. The only good thing to come out of this is that some progressives have said that they will not come to the State of AZ because of our desire to uphold the immigration laws through sb1070. Less progressives equals happy life.

      Diane Feinstein is condemning sanctuary cities even though she signed a law – as mayor of San Francisco – setting up the sanctuary city. These people are shameless – and utterly stupid. You know why we started getting sanctuary cities? Because Reagan was opposing communism in central America in the 1980’s and our Progs wanted to prevent the deportation of citizens of those countries…

      • Cluster July 10, 2015 / 7:46 am

        The federal government looks the other way when sanctuary cities like SF ignore federal immigration laws, yet the federal government sues my State of AZ for wanting to uphold them. That is a good example of how bad things are.

    You can’t get much more out of control than this.

    The list of things 15-year-olds are not legally allowed to do in Oregon is long: Drive, smoke, donate blood, get a tattoo — even go to a tanning bed.

    But, under a first-in-the-nation policy quietly enacted in January that many parents are only now finding out about, 15-year-olds are now allowed to get a sex-change operation. Many residents are stunned to learn they can do it without parental notification — and the state will even pay for it through its Medicaid program, the Oregon Health Plan.

    • Amazona July 10, 2015 / 6:57 pm

      It’s not as if fifteen-year-olds have ever made bad decisions. It’s not as if all of us, if we are honest, can think of bad decisions we made as adolescents that we are eternally grateful were not permanent. It’s not as if fifteen is ground zero for adolescent angst and confusion and rash decisions. It’s not as if parents should have anything to do regarding medical treatment for their children.

      I literally cannot think of one single thing that could justify such insanity. I can usually see the other side of an argument even if I think it is wrong, but in this case I just can’t imagine an “other side” that could make an iota of sense.

        Hell, not even old enough to have sex or a sexual preference, but old enough to surgically mutilate what sex they were born as? But why 15? Why not 10? Johnny wants to be an astronaut……and a Jill. And they figure this policy may prevent 1 suicide a year. Maybe, but how about the way they will feel in 30 years? The suicide rate for homosexuals and transgenders is already off the charts. And this is the same state who denies cancer and other treatments to elderly and low-income http://valueofinnovation.org/from-eugene-to-eugenics-oregons-new-cost-cutting-strategy-is-to-deny-care-to-cancer-patients/ and where physician assisted suicide is legal. Looks like the state wants to play God on the taxpayers dime.

        I ran across this article from a link in the comments section of another article. I think he pretty well nails it.

        On June 28, 1969 the homosexual political movement, which had previously defined its goal as “the right to be left alone,” took a militant turn. At the Stonewall Bar on Christopher Street in New York City, “gay” activists rioted against police who tried to arrest an underage “drag queen” prostitute. That episode of violent rebellion is now commemorated annually as “Gay Pride Day.”

        Their inspiration was Herbert Marcuse, the German-born philosopher and political strategist who headed the “Frankfort School” of Cultural Marxism. From a perch in the highest branches of American academia Marcuse railed against “the repressive order of procreative sexuality” and called for the “disintegration of the…monogamic and patriarchal family.”*

        In 1972, two hundred homosexual organizations, representing the entire LGBT movement, met in Chicago to outline their Marcusian agenda: a blueprint for supplanting Biblical morality with sexual anarchy — in essence, the overthrow of family-centered Christian civilization.
