In 2000, Jeane J. Kirkpatrick made an acute observation that I've not heard any other observer point out: the switch from "liberal isolationism" to "global engagement" -- almost overnight -- that coincided with the arrival of the Clintons in the White House.

In Commentary, she wrote:

When the Reagan administration offered arms and training to the Nicaraguan resistance, law professors all over America pronounced the policy illegal and utterly rejected the argument that force could under certain circumstances be used to restore or protect democracies. As late as 1989, when the U.S. intervened in Panama under George Bush, leading liberals in and out of Congress described this action as the clearest possible violation of the UN Charter's prohibition on force, and professors of international law reminded all and sundry that the use of force against another state is never justified except in self-defense, a concept that was itself to be very narrowly interpreted.

In Sharia-Britain, patriots are not permitted to sit in a pub and watch football with their children.

Western hero Tommy Robinson and two friends and their seven kids among them went to such a British pub, the Prince Regent, I think I heard, to watch football and have lunch.

Police showed up in force to disperse Tommy FOR NO REASON. On being asked to explain Tommy's offense, they issued him a citation.

Please watch. Even after Tommy and his party leave the pub, the police follow them (around Minute 15), down the lane. They don't even care when the little girls start crying.

That's how police states work.

  



Earlier this week, the Daily Beast published a piece by serial liar, disinformation artist, mixer-upper and Hillary-Clinton-supporter Ron Radosh. (I will resist noting that they deserve each other, but they do.) It is called: "Steve Bannon, Trump's Top Guy, Told Me He Was a `Leninist,' Who `Wants to Destroy the State."

According to the laws of punctuation, the quotation marks around `Leninist' and `Wants to Destroy the State' indicate that these words are actual quotations, but the whole "conversation" smells of a rat.

Why? For starters, Radosh --...

Having put the lexicon aside back in March, the latest GOPe-unhinging event -- Trump's excellent decision to make Stephen K. Bannon CEO of the Trump campaign -- tell me it's time to pick it up again.

I anticipate, if not new depths exactly, greater shrillness, even more toxicity. Now, where were we? A is for Abortion

I am canvassing the news outlets on the shot-in-the-arm presidential election news that Stephen K. Bannon and Kellyanne Conway have vaulted to the helm of the Trump campaign.

Note that Kellyanne Conway, widely respected as a seasoned political pollster, is attracting far, far less attention than Steve Bannon in a news media endlessly concerned (obsessed) with all things female (more accurately, all things non-white-male). As usual, media "concern" (obsession) is exposed as a sham, a means only to advance the Left-wing agenda. (See "feminist"/media rejection of female victims of Bill Clinton's sex crimes for more examples.) 

Clearly, the ascension of Kellyanne Conway does not advance this Left-wing agenda. As the first woman to become campaign manager of a GOP presidential campaign, Conway's very appointment silences one stupid anti-Trump mantra, "he hates women," in a soundbyte. Besides that -- and I only say "besides that" because that's how these bean-counters think -- Conway is a highly regarded, savvy political professional. Therefore, MSM strategy goes (conscious and subconscious), best to overlook that Conway story and see what we can do with anti-Establishment Right and Left Steve Bannon, hmmm? So controversial!!

WND.com recently asked me to comment about the resurgence -- or, rather, uninterupted practices -- of the Muslim rape rings in Rotherham and elsewhere in England, the ones that have turned thousands of young mainly native British girls into sex slaves and gave the English language the vile term "grooming gangs."

Noting that "the systematic exploitation, rape and abuse of a nation’s daughters would once have been cause for revolution or war" -- yea, verily -- the article quotes counterterrorism analyst and author of See Something, Say Nothing Phil Haney, who predicts that European governments will respond to "migrant"/Islamic violence against women by warning women "not to incite migrants," presumably by wearing clothing other than sacks. Such pressure,...

Writing in the Washington Times today, Rowan Scarborough examines the resumes of those 50 "national security Republicans" to sign the latest group-hissy-fit over the fact that 14 million Republican primary voters ignored them and made Donald Trump the GOP presidential nominee.

What does Scarborough find? Fifteen consultants and/or lobbyists, some investors, a bunch of lawyers with corporate clients, fourteen think tankers and nine professors. 

*Pop*

Welcome to the world Washington Insiders terrified that Donald Trump will derail the gravy train and call out their decades of foreign policy disasters.  

Read the article here.







Dutch General Ter Poorten, commander of Dutch forces in the East Indies, spent much of World War II in Japanese captivity (above). Prior to Pearl Harbor, he alerted the US to Dutch decryptions of Japanese coded messages about upcoming Japanese attacks on Pearl Harbor and elsewhere.

Probably the most important lesson of American Betrayal  is that practically everything Americans are taught about the "American Century" is a myth or a lie. This extremely destabilizing lesson calls almost everything we "know" into question,...

Muhammad Al Adnani, spokesman for Al Qaeda in Iraq (and later for the Islamic State), as i.d.'d by the DIA in August 2012.

---

Drawing on an August 2012 Defense Intelligence Agency cable, one of the documents currently spilling out of "secret" archives that buttresses Donald Trump's depiction of President Obama and Hillary Clintons as "founders" of ISIS, Breitbart News reports that Hillary Clinton was well aware that that "the Obama administration was supporting Al Qaeda in Iraq, the terrorist group that became the Islamic State." 

The cable also discusses the emergence of a broader Islamic state from the jihadist factions represented by al-Adnani, which were being supported by "the West,...

Lead story, The Hill, August 16, 2016

-- 

In a previous post, I note the deceptive practice by the MSM of presenting Clinton-linked political professionals as non-aligned experts.

The 24/7 deception by the MSM of presenting themselves as non-aligned news professionals goes without saying.

Only sometimes it doesn't.

Sure, there is the often mindless, and also often lawyerly shading and shaping of news that is constant, and thus hard to keep up with as it just washes over us. In this category, I would put the NYT/CNN's Maggie Haberman's recent expert assessment of that complex of soul-and-nation-devouring Clinton corruption, most currently on view in putrid gushers of unsecured email and other...

The MSM is openly organized as Clinton 2016 General HQ. We know that.

For a reality check, just imagine if Donald Trump's campaign manager ever sat on the board of a company that "bagged $35 million from Putin-connected Russian govnt fund"  -- as did Hillary's campaign manager, John Podesta. (Podesta's lobbyist brother, Tony, does all right in Putinworld, too.)

Or, if Donald Trump approved the sale of 20 percent of US uranium deposits to Putin's Russia -- as SecState Hillary Clinton did.

What with the Clinton Foundation in the news lately for being at the locus of Hillary Clinton's mind-blowing corruption, selling-out of national patrimony, and the like, I thought it would be nice to revisit the glory days of the old place -- as in 2012 when Saudi Arabian Prince Turki, Bill Clinton's Georgetown roommate and, more important, the Saudi dictatorship's former intelligence chief and brother-in-law of Prince Bandar, the Saudi dictatorship's former US Ambassador, came around to toss the following bouquet to Bill Clinton.

"Muslims will never forget your deliverance of Bosnia-Herzogovenia and Kosovo, and near-deliverance, within 100 meters, of Palestine from occupation."

Bill Clinton, Islamic icon: How perfectly beautiful. Do watch at least the beginning of video for yourself -- it really does have to be seen to be believed (especially the canned flourishes that play as Bill takes centerstage) -- and ponder the clo$e per$onal relation$hips that all the Clintons (all the Bushes, too!)...

The Post Constitutional Election, Part 25 is here.

Dear DNC,

Doubtless, I would reach more people if I wrote the following message in a private, hackable email, but I am concerned Russian cyber-trolls are distracted this week by heaps more breaking scandal about Hillary Clinton's loyal services to what some people like to call "Mother Russia." Between that Hillary-approved uranium deal transferring 20 percent of US uranium to Russian control (netting $145 million for the Clinton Foundation) and, now, her success in getting US investors to fund Russian military research...

Watch around Minute 8 to see Allen rationalize Muslim-on-infidel "insider attacks" as resulting from Ramadan fasting, bad weather and "operational tempo."

---

Ret. Marine Gen. and former ISAF commander John R. Allen, who spoke for Hillary Clinton at the DNC convention last week, has now taken on the role of Clinton campaign surrogate to attack Donald Trump for having "no credibility."

Let's talk about credibility -- Allen's.

Allen is a lot more than square shoulders and four stars. He is 1) a perfect exemplar of dhimmitude, an Islamic apologist extraordinaire, one who has even rationalized the murders of his own men by Muslim "insider attacks" (see below);  2) Allen stands as tall as a moral midget, "exonerated" by a Pentagon IG in much the same way as Hillary Clinton was "exonerated" by the FBI.

In a normal world, such a man would be shunned by any respectable politician seeking public support. But this is not a normal world, and Hillary Clinton is not a respectable...
