The Tipping Point

Progressivisms perversion of our ruling classs ideas about war and peace began at the turn of the 20th century. It prevailed in the winter of 1950-51 when this class, having committed the armed forces to war in Korea, decided to order them not to defeat an enemy that had already killed some 15,000 of their number, but rather to kill and die to avoid a wider war, and to foster an international environment pleasing to itself and allied governments. Since then, the U.S. government has won no wars. More important, it has not sought to win wars. Instead, our foreign policy establishment has spent some 100,000 American lives and trillions of dollars in Korea, Vietnam, ...
Trump Submits to Neocon Orthodoxy
Post Date: 2017-05-31 10:24:17 by Deckard
Exclusive: In his Mideast trip to Saudi Arabia and Israel, President Trump sought some political safe harbor by tacking toward neocon orthodoxy and jettisoning his campaign promises of a more rational strategy, writes Daniel Lazare. By Daniel Lazare With astounding precision, Donald Trump zeroed in on the worst possible Middle East policy option in his recent trip to Saudi Arabia and made it his own. He rebuffed the efforts of Irans newly elected moderate government to open up communications with the West and instead deepened Americas alliances with decrepit autocratic regimes across the Persian Gulf. President Donald Trump is escorted by King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of ...

President Trump on Saturday addressed American troops stationed in Italy, offering a glowing assessment of his whirlwind tour through the Middle East and Europe. Trump, who entered the Naval Air Station Sigonella in Sicily to the theme of the 1997 Harrison Ford movie Air Force One, gave himself a few self-congratulatory pats on the back and applauded his unconventional approach to the presidency. We have been gone for close to nine days. This will be nine days. And I think we hit a home run no matter where we are, he said before boarding Air Force One for his return flight to Washington. Trump will land late Saturday amid a growing cloud of controversy surrounding ...
The GOP Hypocrisy Hall of Fame

We certainly dont want leading Republicans to tumble into hypocrisy, so lets refresh their memories.Patriots like Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan have eloquently warned of the importance of ferreting out the truth and holding politicians accountable, including for leaking classified information. Thank God for their insistence on truth-seeking!As McConnell warned, for example: The president did not value the sacred oath. He was interested in saving his hide, not truth and justice. I submit to my colleagues that if we have no truth and we have no justice, then we have no nation of laws. No public official, no president, no man or no woman is important enough to sacrifice the ...

Donald Trump Has Destroyed the Credibility of the Presidency
Post Date: 2017-05-17 05:35:21 by Deckard
There is no longer any reason to trust anything the president or his surrogates say. Shortly after multiple outlets published reports last night that President Donald Trump had shared highly sensitive, classified information about an ISIS plot with Russian officials in an Oval Office meeting last week, White House officials stepped up to respond with denials. The denials were hard to believe because Trump has destroyed the credibility of his office. The most extensive denial came from national security advisor General H.R. McMaster. "The story that came out tonight, as reported, is false," he said. "At no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed and no ...
Family's private investigator: There is evidence Seth Rich had contact with WikiLeaks prior to death [Arkancide]
Post Date: 2017-05-15 23:24:10 by Tooconservative
WASHINGTON - It has been almost a year since Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was murdered in the nation's capital. There have been no solid answers about why he was killed until now. Rich was shot and killed last July in Northwest D.C and police have suggested the killing in the District's Bloomingdale neighborhood was a botched robbery. However, online conspiracy theories have tied the murder to Rich's work at the DNC. Just two months shy of the one-year anniversary of Rich's death, FOX 5 has learned there is new information that could prove these theorists right. Rod Wheeler, a private investigator hired by the Rich family, suggests there is tangible ...
Firestorm over Comey's dismissal adds to Trump frustrations
Post Date: 2017-05-14 17:06:09 by cranky
After four months in office, President Donald Trump has become distrustful of some of his White House staff, heavily reliant on a handful of family members and longtime aides, and furious that the White House's attempts to quell the firestorm over the FBI and congressional Russia investigations only seem to add more fuel. Trump's frustrations came to a head this week with the firing of FBI Director James Comey, who was overseeing the probe into his campaign's possible ties to Russia's election meddling. Fearful that his own team would leak the decision, Trump kept key staff in the dark as he pondered the dramatic move. The communications staff charged with explaining the ...
Scoop: Trump, irked at cabinet and staff, mulls sweeping shake-up
Post Date: 2017-05-14 08:54:28 by cranky
At the urging of longtime friends and outside advisers, most of whom he consults after dark, President Trump is considering a "huge reboot" that could take out everyone from Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon, to counsel Don McGahn and press secretary Sean Spicer, White House sources tell me. Trump is also irritated with several Cabinet members, the sources said. "He's frustrated, and angry at everyone," said one of the confidants. The conversations intensified this week as the aftermath of the Comey firing pushed the White House from chaos into crisis. Trump's friends are telling him that many of his top aides don't know how ...

Then on Tuesday afternoon, the president abruptly announced he was firing Comey. On Wednesday, White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump had actually been considering letting Comey go since Election Day. While Trump had sometimes criticized Comey during the campaign especially after Comey announced in July that Hillary Clinton wouldn't face charges related to her use of a private email server as secretary of state Trump also gave him ...

Trump's Comey firing sets off new round of leaks
Post Date: 2017-05-12 09:37:34 by cranky
President Trump is besieged by internal leaks as he tries to weather the fallout from his firing of FBI director James Comey. Media reports about the run-up to Trumps decision paint him as isolated and consumed by anger and paranoia, prompting questions from Trump allies about whose interests these government officials had in mind when they spoke to the press. The behind-the-scenes stories have often undermined the White Houses public reasoning for firing Comey, causing further political trouble for the administration and exacerbating growing divisions between Trump and his law enforcement agencies. And Trumps abrupt firing of Comey appears to have stirred opposition ...

Trump Must Save Us From Obama’s Climate Change Agreement
Post Date: 2017-05-09 10:25:24 by HomerBohn
little more than a year ago, President Obama signed an agreement with 170 countries in Paris that essentially turned the U.S. into an international piggy bank. Under the guise of combating climate change, Obama committed the U.S. to paying for third-world countries (which includes places like China) to raise their emissions standards so that the polar bears might live to fish another day. It was, naturally, celebrated as a Great Step Forward by the increasingly-disconnected-from-reality environmental left. It was nothing of the kind. Republicans dont like to fight the mainstream narrative, whether its on climate change or anything else, and theyve gotten ...
