A lot of interesting and important news and opinion

Comment on my last blog post: "Worth Reading political news and opinion"
Jarhead: One of your best, if not your best, "news and opinion" posts of all time!
Hours of great reading, thanks. --Anon.

As always you inspire me. It's so nice that you are feeling well enough to send out some interesting and thought provoking material. I find it more difficult each day to not feel exhausted by our politicians and their weakness in standing up to this administration with only empty words. Those that do are isolated and the others try to destroy them. The corruption is maddening. Their ability to get away with crimes you or I would be doing jail time for, is an insult to every American. I often think of Michael and how wise he was. It is probably a blessing he doesn't have to witness the Muslim invasion of Europe (and here) that is going on. Then I realize that God always has a plan. That sometimes the darkness has to be blinding before the light can shine through. I know that good will prevail over evil, but it's going to be one Hell of a battle with very ugly times ahead.  Even though I'm scared for what lies ahead, I know Americans fight for freedom. I just may not see the end of the battle during my lifetime. I don't expect you to reply. I just wanted to share my thoughts with you. Love to you and your wife. Be safe. --Gail

Comment on my September 8 Blog Post (with the picture of a knight at the Highland games):
Congratulations on your 23rd anniversary! I'm the knight on the horse at the Scottish Highland games. I've been following your blog for a few months now and I love it. From one vet to another, here's to you and Bonnie! May you celebrate many more!
Sincerely, Carlo and Caesar. (Small world! ~Bob)

Worth Reading: Walker Trumps The GOP Presidential Field In Healthcare Reform. By Sally Pipes
Excerpt: Donald Trump may lead the Republican presidential candidates in the polls today. But he doesn’t lead the pack in ideas for how to replace Obamacare. At the recent GOP debate, Trump said he believed in single-payer healthcare. “It works in Canada. It works incredibly well in Scotland.” The business mogul said that he would replace Obamacare with “something terrific” — and offered no other details. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, by contrast, actually has come out with “something terrific” — and reasonably detailed — to replace Obamacare. It’s the first viable and serious healthcare plan from the GOP presidential hopefuls.

Worth Reading: Thoughts of a Vietnamese American
On Saturday, July 24th, 2010 the town of Prescott Valley, AZ, hosted a Freedom Rally. Quang Nguyen was asked to speak on his experience of coming to America and what it means.  He spoke the following in dedication to all Vietnam Veterans.

Navy secretary threw us ‘under the bus,’ say Marines in gender-integrated infantry unit
And they are to be admired for having the cojones for stepping up to tell the truth to all.  Mabus will now be looking for some non-obvious way to penalize these men and women for daring to speak up and throwing the lies back in his face.  Hopefully the CMC will not go along with any of it.  Hopefully the Corps will hang on with all they have until 2017 when a new SecNav is appointed, maybe one who knows something about the military and is there to support rather than play leftist politics. --Del

Worth Reading: Germany Busts ISIS Terrorist/Syrian Refugee. How many of them will be ISIS? You've got to let them in to find out. By Daniel Greenfield
Of course these guys are jumping on the "refugee" bandwagon, it's the smart tactic to employ.  The Germans and Brits are going to be regretting their enormous generosity very deeply within a few years.  The German and UK taxpayers are going to be taking it in the shorts to pay for all this, and the other European countries like Italy and Greece that have allowed so many migrants of all sorts to come in are also going to be bleeding money in huge amounts and facing social problems that will wreak havoc. And our politicians (read BHO) want to bring many thousands to the USA?  People who don't speak English, are solidly Muslim, and many if not most of whom will not be any more in favor of real assimilation than the Somalis and others who have caused so much trouble in the past decade.  What a great idea!  Taking in refugees has paid off well, look how nicely those Tsarnev brothers worked out. Send money, food, medical supplies, tents, etc, to camps OVER THERE some place.  Don't bring people here.  But it's no use, our leader is going to do exactly as he feels like.  2016 can't come too soon. --Del

Feminist Shames Lawyer Over ‘Unacceptable and Misogynistic’ Compliment
One of the few upsides to the coming Islamicization of Europe is that slavery will soon be legal. Once that happens, Ms Proudman, lacking a male defender, can be sold as a slave, thus doing great benefit to some needy bordello, to the profit of the sons of the Prophet (PBUH), and to the applause of Dike, the (you can't make this shit up) Goddess of Justice. --Tom Kratman (Tom Kratman is a retired USA LtCol, an occasional contributor to this blog, and an outstand author of military science fiction, including the A Desert Called Peace series. ~Bob)

Was Donald Trump’s education venture, Trump University, a scam?


Islamic jihadists “trying to recruit Syrian refugees in Germany.” By Robert Spencer,
Excerpt: “The Office for the Protection of the Constitution is currently watching 30 mosques and some 1,900 Islamists in the state, according to the authorities.” 30 mosques? But don’t they know what everyone from David Cameron to John Kerry to the U.S. Catholic bishops knows: that jihad terror has nothing — nothing! — to do with Islam?

Pompous Trump Is ALREADY Congratulating Himself On Debate Next Thursday

Excerpt: Donald Trump’s covetous nature is not in dispute, but what many may forget is that he’s no great respecter of the admonition not to steal, either: The man has a track record of using the government as a hired thug to take other people’s property.

A recent scholarly paper on “microaggressions” uses them to chart the ascendance of a new moral code in American life.
Excerpt from comments: "but everyone does it, from all sides of the political spectrum."
Please... Liberals have taken the victimhood game to a whole new level. They're mastered playing the race & sex card from the bottom of the deck for decades, and now it has led to the kind of silliness where college administrators must issue "trigger warnings" & construct "safe rooms" with puppies & soothing music to calm would-be victims whenever a speaker comes to campus with an opinion that is different from their own.. The "microaggression" (What the hell is that, anyway?) vignette above is just one small example of making a mountain out of a molehill.

Worth Reading: CLOACA, Part II. By Tom Kratman
So what has CLOACA really done by helping the other side? They’ve advanced the cause of barbarism. They’ve given our soldiers graphic lessons in just how effective the most barbaric tactics are, in just how effective someone can be alone and in small groups, and in the efficacy of specific terror. They’ve also – and here I can see Bradford’s article being a real timesaver – identified themselves as the enemy to a large number of extremely capable people – highly trained and experienced soldiers – who have the expertise, the example, and now the motivation to obliterate the left wing professoriate.8 Should that day come to pass, members of CLOACA, the day when you find yourselves standing on a barrel under the lamppost, with the rough rope around your soft, scrawny neck, remember; you were warned. Or when you stand among the bombed and burnt ruins of the home that still contains whatever’s left of your loved ones, on that day, remember, please, you, yourselves, advanced the cause of those who bomb homes and murder families.

400,000 immigrants lose Obamacare coverage

Excerpt: However, FBI records show that half of the nation’s murder victims are black. If that percentage applies to the new murder data, Obama’s anti-cop campaign has coincided with the death of 241 African-Americans. That’s 241 times as many African-Americans as were killed in Ferguson, Mo., on March 7, 2014, when Michael Brown was killed while attacking a police officers. Still, some of the dead are police. At least three of the dead in New York were policemen killed by an angry African-Americans. (538 is run by Nate Silver, a reliable progressive. "Only 482 extra murders"? Very comforting to their families. Most of the victims are likely to be black, of course, But only some #BlackLivesMatter." ~Bob)

Malaysian Muslim says Qur’an led him to join the Islamic State
Excerpt: “He said that he and his wife, Nor Mahmudah Ahmad, left Malaysia on Jan. 26, motivated by a chapter of the Quran that predicts redemption and victory for Muslims before the end of times, under a messianic figure called al-Mahdi.” But surely he misunderstood the Book of Peace, no?

Migrants fake being Syrian to claim European asylum

Excerpt: Now we look at the numbers. The total population of municipal Phoenix is 1.5 million people, 800,000 of which are registered voters. During the summer months a good many of those Phoenix residents are either spending their summers up at their summer home in Flagstaff or vacationing out of state. And despite massive protest the city of Phoenix opted to have this election in August when they knew the number of people in residence would be at their lowest. This almost assured the city masters that this massive $35 billion dollar mass transit bill would pass, even though the transit extension routes will not accommodate 75% of Phoenix residents!  As to the re-election of the Mayor, that too would have been problematic in a November election. An "illegal amnesty wonk", the current Mayor has done nothing to reduce crime and he's run up horrible deficits while in office. Now the sad part. Of the 1.5 million Phoenix residents only 165 thousand voted yesterday. And that massive $35 billion dollar transit prop passed...and that awful mayor got re-elected! In other words ten percent of Phoenix residents decided how the other 90% would spend their tax dollars and how Phoenix shall be run!

Hungary: Muslim cleric says “homosexuals are the filthiest of Allah’s creatures. ” By Robert Spencer,
Excerpt: Woe to you — from the gay community — if you dare to point out Sharia persecution of gays. When Pamela Geller and I ran ads highlighting the mistreatment of gays in Islamic law, the San Francisco City Council issued a resolution condemning not that mistreatment, but our ads. Gay advocates such as Theresa Sparks and Chris Stedman attacked us for daring to call attention to the institutionalized mistreatment of gays under Islamic law. Their gay advocacy doesn’t extend to standing up to Sharia oppression of gays, even though that oppression is far more virulent and violent than anything from “right-wing extremists” in the U.S. And you can’t blame them: given the Leftist/jihadist alliance, it’s clear that if they spoke out against Sharia mistreatment of gays, they would no longer be invited to the best parties, and might even be branded as “right-wing.” Their moral cowardice and duplicity, however, are obvious.

Holder's Hatchet Job: Another look at the Justice Department's misguided Ferguson report, which caps the former attorney general's legacy of racial divisiveness
I am really impressed that someone took the time to write this detailed dissection of the DOJ report on Ferguson.  There was little doubt in my mind that Mr. Holder sent his people there to go find racist practices, as a foregone conclusion.  That they had tried hard to find some way to say the shooting was racist but had been frustrated by the actual evidence (powder burns on Brown's arm from trying to yank away the officer's gun were just too hard to get past) was already known.  But the next attempt to make this into a racist mess was to find racist practices in the police department, and in the end they said they had done that.  I was skeptical, but hadn't read the report. Now someone has done that for us all, and written things up very carefully and factually.  While there is no way to prove no Ferguson cop ever had a racist thought or ever treated someone Black with bias, the actual data do not demonstrate any clear and consistent racist practices.  It's not a super short read, but if anyone is interested in understanding how the game was played to support the conclusion that Mr. Holder started off with, examining the article will provide that. Sadly, the data on murder rates do demonstrate that it's tremendously more dangerous to be a young Black man than to be a White man in the Large Fringe Metro Areas of Missouri, and that the great majority of murderers of Blacks are other Blacks.  We're back to the awful social problem in the inner city Black communities that has nothing to do with White racism by cops or anyone else.  And which the fanning of racial tensions in the nation does absolutely nothing to remedy. --Del

Iran Nuclear Deal Explained by Morgan Freeman
A really superb YouTube video made of course by some fervent Obama supporters, which goes on along the standard narrative about why this deal is great, and the GOP are opposing it out of sheer nastiness, when it will make us all so much safer and avoid the only possible alternative, which is to declare war on Iran.  Or maybe there's a guarantee that Iran will formally declare war on us (they've been at sneaky war with us since the day they took over the embassy).  It's almost funny to watch, as they make idiots out of themselves while clearly having a great time. That there are absolutely other things to be done other than signing the Deal or declaring war is known to almost anyone with an operating frontal lobe.  But the supporters really think they can sell this package.  Their opinion of the American public isn't very complimentary. The most encouraging bit of news for many months now is that the polls tell us 79% of Americans think the Iran Deal is a bad idea.  Finally the flow of information about all the holes in the Deal that mean it's not worth a damn has penetrated far and wide, and the known history of the Iranians lying, cheating, game playing, and then lying some more, while chanting Death To America every day, has made even the more naive Americans look at this as the pile of steaming BS that it is.  When you get down to 21% supporters, you are down to the Far Left, CAIR, and the total disciples of Obama, plus maybe a few of the most naive and utterly innocent people on earth. Not that it makes any difference at all to Obama and the Democrats.  It's going to go through, with all the game playing tactics old and new, and Obama will proudly announce this smiling even more widely than Neville Chamberlain did way back when.  The only question is whether the brutal truth will come out about this any faster than "Peace in Our Time" was revealed to be a fantasy. Once this is done (if not ongoing already) the Saudis will jump on a program to get their own nukes, followed by at least two or three other nations in the region, and the games will begin.  After that, I cannot make any predictions, because everything will become too chaotic and complex for anyone to see how all the dominoes will fall.  Fasten your seat belts, people, the ride is going to get bumpy. --Del

Get Ready for Bernie Sanders’s Appeal to Raw Envy. By Jim Geraghty, Morning Jolt
Have you seen Bernie Sanders’s stump speech? Every time, he says something like this:
Every month, the U.S. government comes out with figures. Last figures has unemployment in America as 5.3 percent. Wrong. That official statistic does not include those people who have given up looking for work and the millions of people who work part time. And all of that together, real unemployment over ten percent! Some of us have been making this point for a very long time! Remember my video from 2010 using my then-toddler son’s little figures? Why is it when I do it, I’m some delusional pessimistic right-wing nut-job who’s talking down the economy, but when Sanders does it, he’s looking beneath the surface to showcase the hard truths of the modern economy? Sanders continues: Do you know what youth unemployment is in this country? In terms of kids who have no jobs, or are working part-time when they want to work full-time. EPI told us if they were white, youth unemployment is 33 percent! Hispanic youth unemployment is at 36 percent! And if they were African-American, 51 percent (boos, jeers). We are turning our backs on an entire generation of young people who want to stand on their own two feet! Here’s a fun question: How do you declare, “We are turning our backs on an entire generation of young people,” without blaming the president who’s been in power for the past seven years, and the policies he enacted? Gee, if only liberal Democrats had some sort of influence over policy since January 20, 2009!
