You might have heard that Russians used a nerve agent to try to kill a guy in Britain:
British counterterrorism police say a former Russian double agent, whom Russian President Vladimir Putin had vowed to kill, was poisoned by a nerve agent.
The comments came after the British government’s high-level emergency committee known as COBRA was updated Wednesday on a probe into the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his 33-year-old daughter.
“This is being treated as a major incident of involving attempted murder by the administration of a nerve agent,” assistant police commissioner Mark Rowley said. He said father and daughter remain critically ill. Rowley would not identify the exact substance used or how it was delivered.
Police also confirmed Wednesday that one officer who was part of the initial response to the incident was hospitalized in serious condition…
Much heart-ache and hand-wringing is going on over this – people making furious statements about Russia, others pledging support for Britain. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Color me unimpressed.
You see, this, if true (and it looks like it is) is an act of war. This is the kind of thing that you simply don’t let people do in your country – and if they are done by agents of foreign powers, you demand that foreign power surrender the miscreants or you go to war.
War? Yes, war. There’s a reason you go to war – one of the more traditional reasons is that someone has launched an attack on your soil. Using a nerve agent is a rather serious attack. If you are British, you want to make certain that such a thing is never repeated. That anyone contemplating doing such a thing will know it means war with Britain. Thing is, I don’t think there are any British any more. I think they’ve all died off and all we’ve got in Britain is a bunch of people who just happen to be living there. Oh, fine: yell at me about that. Let’s say there still are some – but they probably aren’t north of 20% of the population. I’m sticking with what I said, though, because I’ve yet to see anyone in Britain call for war with Russia over this.
And, yes, the Brits could fight Russia. In fact, Russia is in a seriously bad strategic situation right now. First off, they’ve really got no effective way to strike directly at Britain in a war. Their fleet is a bad joke. Britain could, of course, immediately go into alliance with Ukraine and aid their efforts to recapture the Crimea and the Donbass. Poland would likely lend a hand as they’d be relieved to get the Russians out of the Kaliningrad Oblast. The Baltic States, Finland and Sweden would likely start out strictly neutral, but if things started going bad for Russia, they’d all likely jump in for the kill. Also, Russia’s economy is in poor shape. This wouldn’t be a march on Moscow, but, instead, a campaign to defeat Russia in the periphery and force them to a peace which results in a drop in Russian prestige and an object lesson about not causing offense (think of it as Crimean War Two, as it were). No, the Russians would not use nukes because Britain has nukes, too.
But, nothing…just outrageously outraged words over the outrage. Complete fantasy-land stuff. The stuff of people who just want to live (often on the dole) and never make a sacrifice for anyone or anything. Sure, I’d like the United States to back Britain…but only if there is a Britain to back. Right now, it doesn’t look like there is.
And the plot thickens:
A FORMER KGB agent accused of poisoning Russian defector Alexander Litvinenko was last night linked to a Russian businessman found dead in London.
Russian airline mogul Nikolai Glushkov, 68, was found with “strangulation marks” at his home in New Malden by his daughter Natalia on Monday night.
This is in addition to the Skripal poisoning and the article also reminded us of Boris Berezovsky who was found dead in his London home in 2013, so Russia and Putin have a long history of nefarious dealings inside Britain, but it’s because he knows he can. Britain is too weak, and too politically correct to do anything about it.
And this brings me to yet another flaw of leftist ideology that stems from the flawed notion of “equality” – and that is that all people ARE NOT good people, or “just looking for a better life”. In fact I would argue that a solid 25% to 30% of all people on this planet are absolute SCUM. They are rude, lazy, selfish, self absorbed, unsympathetic, uncaring, sociopathic and simply a cancer on society. They can be judged, they should be judged, and civil minded people of integrity should never be cowardly in their assessment of such trash.
And this story right here from California confirms what I just wrote about the flaw of leftist ideology.
The video shows a woman being pulled away from her three screaming daughters as ICE orders her to get into a van. Media outlets ran with the “upsetting” video, focusing their headlines on the idea that the woman was unfairly being taken from her kids.
Sounds horrible right? Progressive media propagandists were shocked at the brutal treatment of this illegal immigrant woman who just wanted a better life for her children – right?
WRONG. She is scum. She’s suspected by the feds of organizing a human trafficking operation, and used her children as shields.
Strong men need to be strong again. We need more George Pattons, and less Barack Obamas.
And meanwhile, the communists in this country continue to work behind the scenes:
Adam Waldman said that during an appearance before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) on Nov. 3, he relayed information about possible links between billionaire activist George Soros and Fusion GPS………Waldman told The Daily Caller News Foundation that Jones asserted that he was working with Fusion GPS and that the research firm was being funded by a “group of Silicon Valley billionaires and George Soros.” Jones also described Fusion as a “shadow media organization helping the government.”
But yet most Americans believe that Trump was the one colluding with Russia. Propaganda and a stupid population are the downfall of every society.
And here’s a member of the 30%:
James Clapper, director of national intelligence from 2010 to 2017, admitted giving “clearly erroneous” testimony about mass surveillance in March 2013, and offered differing explanations for why.
Two criminal statutes that cover lying to Congress have five-year statutes of limitations, establishing a Monday deadline to charge Clapper, who in retirement has emerged as a leading critic of President Trump.
“He admitted to lying to Congress and was unremorseful and flippant about it,”
James Clapper is Deep State Scum
Our Deep State scum do what they do because they are smugly sure there will be no consequences.
The Complicit Agenda Media do what they do because they are smugly sure there will be no consequences.
Russians kill Russians in England because they are smugly sure there will be no consequences.
Soros manipulates the government of the United States because he is smugly sure there will be no consequences.
American cities and various law enforcement officers boldly declare they will not uphold the law and will even interfere with federal officers trying to enforce it and do what they do because they are smugly sure there will be no consequences.
Judges act as if the judiciary gives them power to make law and flout existing law to advance political agendas, and they do what they do because they are smugly sure there will be no consequences.
And this all happens because there is not the political will in the united States (or the UK) to impose consequences.
England can’t go to war with Russia. That would be ridiculous. But England can cut off diplomatic relations with Russia and expel all Russian diplomats. England is a small country, but I am sure its economic relationships with Russia benefit Russia. They could move to end those relationships. The United States could act the way allies are supposed to act, and impose our own sanctions as well as picking up the slack regarding any British imports of Russian goods, such as oil.
There are things that can be done, but they require political and moral backbones and stamina. And right now we are running scared of Dems, with elections coming up in a few months, so we will do what we always do. That is, cower in fear, let the media spread their lies, let judges rule the country from their respective benches, and let the Left advance one step at a time.
You know what;s funny about Hillary’s assertion yesterday that “all wives voted the way their husbands wanted them too”, is that my wife was all in for Trump the minute he announced his candidacy and I was not. It took me a while to come around to Trump, so in reality, my wife influenced me. Am I oppressed?
I wouldn’t say my wife convinced me to vote for Trump, but she was for him long before I was. Can we start an Oppressed Club?
I have to wonder just who Hillary thinks she is winning over by her constant denigration of women. She might think she is playing to Leftist women who want to believe that any woman who can think for herself will automatically be in favor of baby-killing and a massively powerful Central Authority, and certainly there are some who must think that way, but there have to be a lot of strong-willed Dem women who are starting to resent the constant Hillary message that women are not capable of making their own decisions.
At the very least, she is piling up mountains of ammunition to use against her if she tries to run again. (Or, as shown in at least one video, decides to stumble again.)
This might also be another effort to create divisiveness, to validate man-hating and widen the gulf between radical man-hating Libs and men. In any case, she is preaching to a very select group that is already in the bag for her, and aside from doing some America-bashing overseas, spreading vile lies about Americans I don’t see any of this helping her or the party.
The resentment is DEEP
Kurt Schlichter echoes what I’ve been saying for the last month or so, only with much more style and humor.
I love this quote from Gen. George Patton
“If everyone is thinking alike, then someone is not thinking”
The thing is, we all knew this kind of thing about Trump before he even got the nomination. We might not have known the salacious details, but we knew he had been unfaithful to every woman in his life. We knew he had been a pig, a jerk, and so on. And possibly, if he had run against a Democrat with character and a plan for the nation (I pause here for the snickering to subside……waiting……waiting……) he might not have won. If he had run against Republicans in the primary who had had the ability to articulate what he did, he might not have even won the primary.
But life is not based on woulda/coulda/shoulda. He was the only one in the race, on either side, who could articulate a vision for the country that resonated with so many voters. I think his vision was much the same as that of Cruz, but Cruz didn’t have that visceral connection with the everyday American that Trump did. So he took the primary. Then he ran against a Dem who promised more of the same old same old Obama crap while being, herself, a really bad person and a really bad candidate. So in the perfect storm of his message and her deficiencies, he took the election.
So why should we care now? It’s not as if Americans thought they were voting in a stellar example of marital fidelity and consistent good character. In a perfect world, without the absolutely terrifying disasters looming over us every day during the latter part of the Obama years, with different choices, we might not have voted for a serial adulterer. But we had to play the card we were dealt. We didn’t have the luxury of holding out for a perfect candidate. I think we figured if he could just manage to rein in his more distasteful inclinations while in office, we’d be happy as long as he got the job done.
I also always come back to the belief that it is not uncommon for men, in particular, to break a lot of rules in their climb to the top—rules of morality, of courtesy, even sometimes of legality, because they are focused on certain goals of success. And then when they get there, they look back on their lives and are not happy with what they see, and commit to reinventing themselves, to being better men. Look at the old Robber Barons of the 19th Century, Carnegie and Rockefeller to name two, who apparently repented and tried to create legacies for themselves that were far better than the lives they lived on the way to the top. The most important part of my life when I was young was the local Carnegie library, where I went every week with my mother to have her check out books for me, as I was too young to have my own library card, and my sixth birthday was only important to me because that was the day I got my own card. I know Carnegie was probably a jerk and worse as he fought his way to wealth and status, but as far as I was, and am, concerned, he redeemed himself, and his contribution to national literacy was immeasurable.
For now I am giving Trump the benefit of the doubt, and choosing to believe that perhaps he, too, may have had one of those late-in-life revelations that it’s time to repent and clean up his act. I know he said he had never had to ask for forgiveness, but I really don’t think he can look back on some of his life with admiration for what he would see, and if he wants to go out as a better man I say good for him.
It’s a wall to wall Stormy Daniels coverage on Morning Joe now that the Russia collusion story fell apart and the obstruction charges are not getting any traction.
They have become a complete joke and i really hope they are destroying their careers in the process.
Can you blame them? Fabulously wealthy, immensely powerful New York businessman has an affair!!!!!!! Breaking news!!!!! Never happened before !!!!!!! Who woulda thunk it?????? Sleazy whore trying to get rich off her story!!!!! Absolutely freaking AMAZING!!!!!
