This week's syndicated column

For logic-minded Americans still genuinely puzzled as to how it could be that our presidents and secretaries of state and generals and pundits keep hammering home the big lie that Islam has nothing to do with jihad, that the religion of conquest is a "religion of peace," I have a special warning. Such widespread, politics- and mass-media-driven brainwashing is nothing new.

Just as today's opinion-makers seek to divorce Islam from its impact -- for example, brutal conquest, forced conversion, religiously sanctioned sex slavery, beheadings -- past opinion-makers worked equally hard to divorce communism from its impact -- for example, brutal conquest, forced collectivization, concentration camps (Gulags), mass murder.

It worked. Unlike Nazism, communism has never been judged guilty or even held responsible for the carnage and suffering it has caused. On the contrary, it remains...

A bullseye in Syria, but the US border is still open

---

It's so simple.

We should stay out of the Sunni-Shia regional war developing in Mesopotamia.  Both sides are hostile to Christians and Jews.

Meanwhile, we should secure the borders, halt all immigration and enforce the law: deport the illegals.

These wise words come from an email from Col. Douglas Macgregor (USA ret.), a decorated combat veteran of the first Iraq War and noted military analyst. By this time, a selection of Macgregor's piquant critiques of COIN and the COINdinistas have made their way to this website, beginning in 2010 with the following comment from the famous McChrystal article in The Rolling Stone by the late Michael Hastings.

The reason we don't see a bottle of Hitlerpop next to the Leninade is because the toll of Nazism has never been separated from Nazism.

This double standard is examined in depth in American Betrayal, as below amid the story of ex-Socialist journalists Eugene Lyons' 1931 lecture tour during which he knowingly witheld from American audiences the truth of the Soviet regime he covered as Moscow bureau chief for United Press.

Judge Andrew Napolitano quotes James Madison in a recent column

“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people. … No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.”
