Paris, Lies, And Deadly Deflections

It is a sad commentary on both the state of contemporary political affairs and the degradation of history education that there has emerged an all to frequent theme in many an alternative media site, that Israel/Zionism is the modern  inheritor of Nazi philosophy and methodology. The hate filled vitriol that this notion is pursued with rivals that of the Nazis themselves. That the irony of this is lost upon these fools makes it all the sadder, tragic and dangerous.

To put it bluntly, it is a crock of historically shortsighted crap. Islam has been at war with any and all who reject their death cult from its very inception. Ask the Jews who founded and built the city of Medina who were slaughtered for refusing to convert. Ask the Christians of North Africa and Syria who were slaughtered for refusing to convert. Ask the Christians of Spain who fought for 700 years to free themselves from the opression and murder of the Moors. Consider the tens of tnousands who were slaughtered or carried off into slavery by Islamic piracy in the Mediterranean for over 1000 years. 

Islam has always considered that any land once conquered by Islam, belongs to Islam forever and its peoples have no right to determine their own future. It tactics of conquest by violence and intimidation have not changed one bit in 1500 years. There is not a single other culture on the face of god's green earth that Islam has ever lived in peace with, except the peace of subugation enforced at the point of a scimitar. ISIS is just the latest manifestation of Islamic 7th century barbarism armed with modern weapons.

Whenever anyone dares defy this deceitful propaganda and define Islam for what it is and has always been, namely a collectivist, totalitarian personality cult of death worship, they quickly come under attack by a legion of buffoons who immediately accuse them of being Jews and or agents of Mosad and base their attacks on such unsubstantiated falshoods and a fallacious interpretation of 20th century European history.  

They neither know or care in the least of the history or credentials of those who would dare challange their false narrative. (Just as an aside, I'm about as WASP as anyone could possible be. Thanks to the diligent geneological work of my grandmother and my cousin the family has been traced back to the Plantagenet kings of England.) The notion that Zionism, the Jewish peoples desire for a homeland where they can at least hope to be in control of their own fate, is the inheritance of Nazi philosphy and methodology is absurd on its face. These vile 21st century propagandists openly proclaim the very same Nazi and Islamic hate of the 20th century that the very existance of the Jews is a global conspiricy to control the world that reaches back to the time of the Pharaohs. 

The very last thing these despicable people want examined in the light of day are the proven historical connections between the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Nazi state. They don't want any examination of the history of escaped Nazis working in and helping to build the post war governments of Syria and Egypt.

Their modern day manifestation of this ancient evil must be confronted with harsh light of truth whenever it can be. Failure to do so and allowing an even greater emergence of Islamic butchery will sink humanity into a murderous barbarity that would make that of the combined horror of the Nazis, the Japanese empire and the Communists pale by comparison. 

It is up to governments to confront the physical, political and military manifestations such as ISIS and al Qaida. It is up to the courage of individuals to confront the anti-human propagandists.

Don't take my word for the truth of any of these connections. Both the written and photographic evidence of the collusion between Islam and the Nazis is plentiful and easy to find. It must be used to both confront the lies and to demonstrate the truth to those who have been deliberately kept in the dark so as to make of them a new generation of victims of these ancient lies. Simply consider the words of Yasser Arafat. "I am willing to kill for my cause, what makes you think I woundn't lie for it as well?"

John Kerry Is Still An Asshole.

In his statement on the Paris attacks Kerry spoke for nearly 30 minutes but just could not bring himself to correctly label the attackers as what they are, Islamists. What a bunch of shit heads we have in charge in Washington.

And Now For Something From The Back Corner Of The Yard. Part Two.

About two years after I retired from full time work my wife bought us a new storage building/work shop. This was a practical matter in that the one we had had constructed some 26 years earlier had reached, if not exceed, its expected life span given the ravages of time and carpenter bees. As in all marriages we have also accumulated more garden tools and assorted junk that neither of us could come to part with. That and the fact that much of my career kept me on the road, it suffered from plain old neglect.

The new building has twice the floor space as the old one and additionally has two lofted platforms for storing all those thing we never use but can't bear to part with. In the ensuing two years more and more of this building has been taken over as a work shop for carpentry and furniture refinishing. More toy space as my wife calls it was needed for new tools etc.

So the next logical step was to consider building another small building strictly for yard tools and equipment.

As with the last project, I had to conceptualize a design first. This time I had to be careful not to get overly ambitious about what I could do just by myself. With that in mind I called up my design software and in about two days I had the design done and in another two the drawings and material cut lists were complete.

After selecting where I was going to put it, I located supporting blocks and started constructing the platform frame.

The outer and center crossing beams are pressure treated 4x4s.
The center beams are notched in the middle to nest them together.
All the outside connections were done with 8" lag bolts.
The center lap joint was done with 3" deck screws. Two from the top
and two from the bottom forming a square pattern.

Two sets of intermediate floor joist were put in and
supported at the ends with hanger blocks. These were
all mounted with 3" deck screws.

Once the frame was complete and final leveling was done 11/32 plywood was attached for flooring.

The floor panels were attached with 1-5/8" deck screws.
Now with a stable platform and room to work I started on the frames for the walls.

First came the back wall.

Then the first side wall.

Both of these required careful measuring and clamping to keep them square and true. These were then used as templates for the second side wall and the front wall. Again 3" deck screws were used throughout.

Second side wall buifirst.top of first.

Front wall built on top of back wall.

Next came the roof trusses.

As before with the wall frames, the first became template for the others. Five in total.

I was now ready to begin erection of the building.

The first side wall.

The back wall.

The second side wall.

The front wall.

And finally the roof trusses were put in place.

It was now time to start puting the external wall pickets in place.

First the back wall.

Then the side walls.

And the front wall.

Sills angled at 5° were then added to the window openings to keep rain out.
On the bottom,

And the top.
The external pickets were all spaced with 3/4" gaps. Boards in the center were trimmed to maintain uniform spacing.

The internal spaces between the studs were then filled with 5/16" plywood and attached with 1" flat head screws. The edges of all of these panels were sealed with caulk.

The end truss covers and corner and edge trim were then installed.

The trim boards were put up with finish nails.

The side opening panels were installed.

Then the doors.

The weather forecast then called for several days of heavey rain. It lasted nine days.

Heavy plastic sheet was stapled to the roof. Even this was not enough to stop mildew from starting.  Several applications of bleech solved this problem. 

It was now time to start painting. Putting up the roof panels was going to wait until my son came for a visit.

I had plenty of paint left over from when the new building was purchased and erected. 

The roof panels are 3/8" plywood, attached with 2" deck screws and painted with three coats of textued deck paint. This should get this structure through the winter. Come spring I will put on a couple of layers of roofing paper and a layer of shingles.

Total cost for this project including lumber, hardware, fasteners and the deck paint used on the roof was just under $700.00. The roofing paper and shingles should be around $65.00.

Before spring comes I will be designing and building a ramp for getting the law equipment in and out.  I may also run a trench and bury an electrical line so I can have a light and at least one outlet inside.

And Now For Something From The Back Corner Of The Yard. Part One.

I don't spend all my time surfing the net and writing blog posts about politics and economics.  Recently I finished a couple of carpentry projects. As I enjoy my retirement, keeping the body active is as important as keeping the mind sharp.

All across the the American suburbs nothing is more ubiquitous than the plastic roll out garbage and recycling cans. Whoever said that a simple, functional design has a beauty all its own wasn't thinking about this particular part of the American landscape. My task then was to find a way to conceal our three cans from view, make them accessable for regular use and for moving to the street on the scheduled day.

The first step of course was to conceptualize a design in my head and then take the concept and turn it into a 3-D design. From this I produced assemby drawings and material cut lists. Having spent a good chunk of my career as a machinery designer this was the easy part.

The basic frame had three sub-assemblies that were put together in my shop. These were then put together at the top of my driveway where the can corral was to be located.

The subframes and frame assembly was constructed
with 2x4s and 3" deck screws.
Once the frame was assembled it was lined up an leveled. It was then attached to the fence with 3" and 4" deck screws from both sides of the fence.

Bricks and concrete blocks were used to keep the
frame off the ground.
Once this step was completed, the forward corners of the end frames were then supported with short sections of pressure treated 2x4. This stabilized the frame structure, took the stress out of the screws attaching the frame to the fence and protects it from rot.

Like the frame, the forward stabilizers were
attached with 3" deck screws.
This done, I could then begin attaching the pickets and the doors to the left side.

The pickets were attached with 2" ring shank
roofing nails.
The doors, like the sub-frames, were pre-assembled in my shop. The next step of course was the remaining end pickets and door.

Plywood gussets were used to reinforce the corners
 of the door frames and attached with 2" deck screws.
A forward stabilizing 2x4 was then put in place to prevent the doors from sagging inward from their own weight and to control the final spacing between them.

After the closing latch was put in place all that remained was to apply a coat of stain.

The total cost for the materials to build this, not including the stain that I already had, came to just under $110.00.

Bernie Sanders an the Big Swedish Lie

Like so many other leftists, Bernie Sanders has embarked on the claim that America should become more European like and institute even more social welfare programs. As they always do, they hold up Sweden as some sort of shining example of how the modern socialist state should work.

The problems is, like with so many other leftist arguments, this one is superficial and shallow in its accounting of the historical realities behind modern Sweden. In short the argument is rife with the lies of omission.

In that period when the American colonists were just begining their long struggle against King George III, Sweden was still under the domination of the usual types of self-entitled nobility and oppressive trade guilds that had been the social model since the middle ages. Most of the population lived in the poverty of a feudal economic system. They were quite simply serfs. 

By the begining of the 19th century the same type of enlightened classical liberalism that had inspired the American Revolution began to take root in Sweden. The nation was transformed from an economic system of Royal licences and trade guilds into a model of laze fair economics. The transformation was so complete that in the period between the middle of the 19th century and the middle of the 20th century Sweden's population doubled and personal income grew nearly 1000%. Sweden became the 4th wealthiest nation in the world. Sweden's industry and population became some of the most modern and innovative in the world. This, coupled with sound banking policy allowed them to accumulate massive capital reserves. 

There was so much prosperity and wealth that the Swedish left which had been, if not dormant, was unable to make much headway against it. They then changed tactics and began insisting that all those reserves should be spent on providing the usual litany of "free stuff" for the population at large. By the year 2000 many programs were in place from health care to subsidized housing etc. and Sweden still held its place as number 4 in national wealth.  But then all those capital reserves built up over a century of hard work and frugality began to run out and Sweden quickly slipped from number 4 to number 14 on the list of national wealth. Additionally, since the social welfare era Sweden's economic growth has stagnated and real job creation has fallen to near zero and corporste innovation has all but disappeared as major corporations survive primarily on government contracts and no longer have to compete. 

As Sweden continues to deteriorate economically, it also deterioates socially and they even seems to be unable to defend themselves or their culture from an invading horde of Muslims who have no interest in assimilating into Sweden but rather seek to parasitically destroy it from the inside. Working against this trend, Sweden has begun to cut back on its social welfare system and privatize large sectors of the economy that had become state controlled.

The idea that the US can impliment a Swedish style socialistic system in a nation of nearly 325 million and already nearly $20 trillion in debt, without destroying labor mobility, taxing captial generation and innovation out of existance just when it is needed most, is purely delusional.  The Swedes are begining to return to their productive capitalistc roots. We should be doing the same.

Anybody Else See a Pattern Here?

While the media are all focused on the Kabuki Theater of presidential politics slowly but surely the nations economy is progressively tipping over the edge. For the past two weeks almost every day has seen the announcement that some Wall Street multi-billion dollar hedge fund or exchage traded fund is either shutting down of halting operations and liquidating its remaining assets. In every case the cause has been inadaquate cash reserves to cover losses from the recent downturn in the market.

While everyone ignores these signs of fragility, volatility  and illiquidity in the market another shoe dropped today when the state of Illinois announced that it was suspending pension fund payments. The state comptroller stated thet November payments would not be made and December's would be "delayed", stating that "For all intents and purposes we are out of money." First it was lottery winners who were getting tbe hose from the Illinois state government, then the schools were going to be shut down early and now pensioners are getting a deep proctological exam because the Democrat controlled legislature in Springfield refuses to make serious and needed cuts to the state budget and the Republican governor refuses to sign any bubget that doesn't.

The outstanding question is of course who in their right minds would loan already bankrupt Illinois even more money?

So Obama's adopted home town rapidly descends into deadly tribal warfare and Hillary's entire home state slides into bankruptcy.  Thanks Democrats! Let's just have the fed print up another couple of trillion dollars and bail out everybody!!

Tonight's Drinking Game Rules.

A shot must be consumed when any of these key words sre used by the moderators or any of the candidates.

1.  Trump.
2.  Entitled/(nonexistant) rights.
3.  War on women.
4.  Evil Republicans/TeaParty/conservative conspiracy.

Three strait shots must be consumed if the words Libya, Benghazi or national debt are not mentioned before closing statements. You might want to do this under any circumstance to numb the brain against the wretched revulsion you are about to experience. Hell you might want to start with three shots before it even begins for the same reason.

Stock up now because you will be hammered before the end of the first half hour.

And Yet Another Propaganda Fest on 60 Minutes.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was a sharp spike in Pepto-Bismol consumption during the so-called interview of the prevaricator in chief on 60 Minutes this evening. To be sure there will be those on the left who will accuse CBS of selling out to the Republicans but that is little more than a smoke screen to cover for the more obvious questions that were not asked.

1. How is it that President Bush the elder was able to decimate the largest army in the middle east with a brief concentrated air campaign and then bring it to its knees with an even briefer ground campaign but your Pentagon can't make headway against what you have defined as "the JV squad" of terrorism?

2. Have your administration's actions in slashing the size of the military and dismissing experienced field commanders had a deleterious effect on our ability to project power in the middle east and elsewhere?

3. Are the American people supposed to think that talking about your position on global warming is a rational response to questions about your leadership in the face of expanding Russian and Chinese military power?

I could go on but I don't think anyone is seriously expecting the MSM to ask anything close to such questions, nor for the liar in chief to be willing to answer them. Tonight's entire process was as scripted and phony as this administration has been since day one.

Time To Move This Back To The Top

The Plague of Ignorance, Apathy and Ancient Evils.

If there is one thing that I have learned in my 66 years dealing in the private, public and government sector it's that individuals with strong leftwing political opinions tend to be pretty thin skinned when it comes to what is to actually be deemed "left" or "right".  The more thin skinned they are the more profoundly ignorant of the subject they are found to be.

This failure of reason and logical thinking is most easily exposed by daring to posit that fascism is the intellectual child of the left.  Bring this subject up and you will soon see how the "open-minded" and "tolerant" leftist is more close minded and intolerant than any conservative I've ever met.  Such a contention is met with utter contempt at best, accusations of stupidity or attempting to manipulate any discussion at worst.  For the contemporary left this is a closed subject and even the discussion is strictly forbidden.  It's even worse in circumstance than questioning Al Gore and his global warming consensus. (I wonder how those folks in New England and the upper mid-west enjoyed the first day of spring from under that freshly fallen blanket of snow.)

Never mind that the so-called idea that fascism was a rightwing ideology had its origins with Joseph Stalin who regarded anything not in conformance with Soviet style international socialism as extreme rightwing.  These leftists have had this idea pounded into their heads in college by various professors who no doubt came from the same "this is axiomatic, no discussion is necessary" (or allowed) perspective.  The question that many of these same professors were/are dedicated leftists doesn't seem to have entered or affected the thought process of these so-called graduates.  In short they have been taught what to think not how to think, particularly as to the subject of the origins of fascism.

This highly singular and as we shall see dangerously erroneous position places profound limitations on the development of political thought moving forward.  I would compare it to dropping anchor and then putting a ship’s engines in all ahead full, then looking over the stern and confusing the turbulence created by the props for forward motion.  They may look over the bow and fixate on the horizon of some "perfected state" but they never look down to see that there is no bow wave being formed.

And yet it doesn't take a very deep examination or comparison between the propagandist rhetoric of today's leftist and that of 1930's Nazi Germany to find shocking similarities.  The evidence exists but like with so many other things they are convinced that by simply refusing to acknowledge its existence it magically disappears.

How frequently have we heard the argument that the constructions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are "antiquated" or out dated or somehow not consistent with modern society? How different is this really from "the constitutional reality of the Third Reich cannot be mastered  with the aid of juridical thought patterns of  the  past."?1  The left has created a political thought process whose only discernible foundation is that the Constitution must be seen as a "living" document whose interpretations are only defined by the exigencies of the moment or whatever is currently deemed "politically correct." How different is this sophistry from that of the Nazi's'; "nor is it admissible to determine National Socialism's political theory by drawing inferences from its system of thought."2  How different is the left’s desire to use the electoral process to move the United States in the direction what they envision as European socialism from the Nazi's self characterization of the F├╝herstaat as "the most ennobled form of a modern European Democracy."?3

The contemporary leftist will tell us that the concepts of individual liberty (defined as freedom from government interference in daily life), self-initiative and moreover personal responsibility for our actions and circumstances are out dated or incomplete.  It is no longer enough to have a system of government and rights that guarantees what the government can't do to the people and their freedoms we must have a government that guarantees what it will and must do for us.  Never mind that historically under such systems "do for us" soon devolves into "do to us".  "No one among us lives for himself, each of us lives only for the people.  No one lives for his own happiness, each lives only for the happiness of the community. No one among us can say as he may have done before: 'My happiness lies in my home, in my business, in my profession.' No -- we live beyond space and time in the millennial destiny of the people.....we have built our happiness in the fortress of socialist life."4 Sounds like something lifted right out of the pages of Pravda or Izvestia right?  Guess again then see note 4 below.

It would be mistake to think that this is simply a resurgence of the Hegelian concept of primacy of the rights of the state over the rights of the individual. Nothing could be further from the truth. The theme of the 1934 Nazi national party congress was "We Command the State!"  Under this doctrine the party and its functionaries (in spite of claims to the contrary) regularly interfered with the conduct of long existing administrative functions, doing so under the rubric of "the will of the leader".  The Party became the State.  How different then is this from Attorney General Holder saying that it's his job to decide which laws are to be enforced and which ones are not, or telling sovereign states that they have no right to protect themselves from a flood of aliens coming across their own borders with a foreign state, using their own duly passed legislation?  According to the Nazi's themselves it was "not the proper function of the administrative courts to act as arbiters in controversies between local government and supervisory departments."5

What most would be students of government and politics (both left and right) either forget or simply were never taught was that the Nazi's formed their government and continually ruled on a basis of the need of addressing a "national emergency".

At some point in the not to distant future we are all going to have to come to grips with a very significant question.   Do we want to live in a country where the final authority of the Federal government is based in law and the consent of the governed or in one where it is based in the will of those who are in "command of the state"?  Look around you at our increasingly militarized police, aggressive "pat downs" at the airport, unmanned drones in our skis and a DHS that is stockpiling enough hollow point ammunition for a thirty years war and then arrogantly refusing to answer questions about those purchases from members of Congress.  DHS is issuing mine resistant armored vehicles (MRAVs) developed in dealing with the insurgency in Iraq to local police departments.  Just who is it these "Federalized" local police envision themselves going to war with?  Look at these things in joint context and then tell us how we don't have a government operating on the basis of "national emergency".

When Senators like Chuck Shumer or John McCain tell you that none of your rights as defined in the Constitution are absolute you had best take them seriously, because what they have envisioned is an Orwellian nightmare of "All pigs are equal but some pigs are more equal than others."  He is not unlike the chuckling Dr Goebbels; "we were not legal in order to be legal, but in order to rise to power.  We rose to power legally in order to gain the possibility of acting illegally."6

John Adams said that "If men were angels there would be no need for government."  Men are not angels so Adams and the founders insured our right to protect ourselves from government, its agents and even the officials we elect.  Therein lay the fundamental difference between the right and the left. We don't believe in Heaven on Earth. The left thinks they can make heaven on earth if only they have the power to do so, and our individual right stand in their way.  

Not to be deliberately repetitive but George Santayana famous quotation is often truncated and its full meaning lost or distorted. Taken in full it is far more profound, especially in regards to to what I have shown above.

"Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness.  When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.  In the first stage of life the mind is frivolous and easily distracted, it misses progress by failing in consecutiveness and persistence.   This is the condition of children and barbarians in which instinct has learned nothing from experience."

 Fascism in one form or another has been with us for a very long time just as has the idea of government.  Whether it started with the ancient kings of Babylon and Persia that demanded their subjects worship them as gods, or in the divine right of kings, who is to say.  History is full of manifestations of evil From the Aztecs slaughter on the alters of human sacrifice to Pol  Pot's killing fields of Cambodia evil has existed in the hearts of men who have always, who will always claim they are doing what is in "our best interest".

Our contemporary leftists may indeed be far more sophisticated than the fascists of the past, but they are fascists none the less. They may dress themselves up in cloaks of erudition and claims of superior intellect and wanting what (only they are allowed to define) is "best for us".  But beneath those cloaks lay the same same ambition, lust for power and willingness to sacrifice the rights and lives of the people for their own accumulation of power and wealth that were not just the hallmarks of the fascists of the 30's and 40's but have plagued mankind since the dawn of time.

Learning To Loath And Mock The American Leftist.

Anyone who dares enter into the comment section of any of the numerous leftwing based or dominated purported news sites such as Huffington Post, Dail Koz or Mediate, knows that it can be a perilous adventure. If you dare question any of the blanket condemnations, unsubstantiated claims or hateful hyperbole found there you had best be prepared for an assault on not just your perspective but your personality, character, intelligence and sanity. Actually engaging in open discussion of issues is the very last thing they are interested in or capable of.

You see the veneer of civilization on the contemporary leftist is very thin. Peal it away by questioning their perspective and the first thing you find is a layer of arrogance masking deeper layers of ignorance, fear and cowardice.

This condition is the logical and predictable result of a failed educational system wherein the inmates are told what to beleive rather than being taught how to think, perform objective analysis and draw their own conclusions.  Rather than being the marketplaces of ideas they once were, our schools have devolved into asylums of indoctrination, where perspectives are presenteted as axiomatic facts that are beyond debate and anyone who dares question their presentation as such is condemned has phobic and or hate filled. The facualties then wield their so-called students like fascist street thugs to shout down any opposition to prevent their perspectives from even being heard never mind debated.

This then is one of the greatnesses of an open and free internet, and why the left continually seeks it regulation. The products of this defective system have been redered not only incapable of grasping complex historical and philosophical constructs, frighted at the prospect of seeing them presented in a forum where they can't be shouted down before they are heard or debated, because they never learned the skills of debate or objective analysis, but they are also deeply afraid of being proven wrong because they somehow know they don't really understand and can't really explain their own position.

These deficiencies in the thought process have been replaced with the tactics of obfuscation, deflection and misdirection . When these fail they immediately resort to the projection of their own deficiencies and then assualts on your intelligence and name calling from the mild to the vile. There are of course among these leftists those who resort to this last tactic first and foremost. These last are also generally devoid of any sense of humor.

Of course the most fundamental constructs they are incapable of grasping are political and economic. Juxtapose fascism and communism together on the left or posit that neither of them are actually anti-capitalist or counter capitalist by rather that they are extreamely inefficient and corrupted forms of capitalism, then stand back and watch their heads explode in vitrol and profanity. Beyond these base emotional reactions, even further cognitive dissonance can be created by asking simple questions, such as can they explain the difference between "national socialism" and "socialism in a single state", or asking them to explain the structural difference between the managment of a factory in the Soviet Union and one in the U.S.

These quesions will produce one of three reactions. 1. More obfuscation, deflection and misdirection. 2. Stupid answers that demonstrate that they don't even understand the question(s). 3. Refusal to further engage, coupled with the insistance that you are in need of psychiatric assistance. You can then genty remind them of three things, that their suggestion is precisely in line with their Soviet progenitors who used the psychiatric hospitals as extensions of the torture chambers of the gulags, that you engage in these exercises for the benifit of those other readers who can be educationally exposed to their irrational behavior and to have good laugh at their expence before moving on to the next batch of contemptable, ignorant leftists.

President Ineffectual Leads Us Into War.

Anyone who has read this blog knows that I am no fan on Vladimir Putin or Russia in general and that I am even less of a fan of the despicable creature currently inhabiting the White House or her ineffectual husband. As awful as our president's performace is, what's is worse is all the pundits that promote Putin as some sort of savior in the middle east. And the same time little credence is given Puin's motives for getting involved.

The recent interview of Putin on 60 Minutes was pathetic. Charlie Rose pitched so many softballs I thought I was watching a middle school girls game. No questions about communist culpability for 70 years of crimes against humanity. No questions about Assad's blocking the construction of a natural gas pipe line that would severely undercut Russia's foreign exchange reserves by reducing western Europe's dependence on Russian energy supplies. Putin's claims about merely wanting to support the established and legitimate government are a smoke screen at best.

All that said Putin is just following an ages old pattern. He sees Obama for what he is, weak, ineffectual and mistrusted by all. If Putin were to fail to step into the void the ultra nnationalists would purge him and find someone who would.

Now we are hearing reports that the Russian's air campaign against ISIS infrastructure has been effective and demoralizing for their forces. Of course for the momment these reports must be taken with a large grain of salt until more independent confirming or refuting reports come in.

Should they prove true, even in part, it raises serious questions as to why the Pentagons operations in Syria and northern Iraq have been, for all intents and purposes, completely inept. Has the Obama administration's Stalinesque purges of top military officers left nothing but a cadre of incompetent "yes men"? Has the DoD directed the Central Command to do nothing but window dressing, meaningless and/or counter productive operations? Are either or both of these possibilities part of or linked to Hillary's infamous "reset" of US/Russian relations?

Some of the Republican candidates have already gone after the President in regards his all to apparent weakness in dealing with Putin.  Maybe they need to ask some of these very questions.

The DJIA is spinning doward again. Will it close at or below the crutial support level of 1600? Or will the FED come to the rescue againbuying everything in sight just to keep it above 1600. 48 minutes will tell.

P.S. OK so I missed it by 1.11 points.

A Message For My Readers.

Some of you know that I often comment on Disqus enabled sites under the name FVS. Under that rubric I have started a discussion group titled "2016 The Paradigm Shift". This will be an open forum to discuss how this election season has quickly developed into something well outside the typical politics as usual, how we got here and where it is going. All are welcome to partisipate and contribute. Looking forward to seeing you there.

CNN=FNC You Be The Judge.

Both networks, are falling all all over themselves congratulating Job Bush for his "He kept us safe" line during Wednesday's debate. Not a one of the talking heads is even considering, nor would they dare, that maybe the approbation is not true.

In the short term many Americans did indeed feel safer after the invasions and of deposing of the Taliban in Afghanistan and Sadam in Iraq. But there is a old truism that "Hindsight is 20/20". So lets examine the claim from that perspective rather than from the very narrow time frame Jeb Bush and the network bubble heads would rather us view it from.

After the fall of both government the forces of jihadist Islam found themselves deprived of areas of operation from which they had worked with impunity. To that degree and in that all to brief window of time, yes we were safer.  But from a longer perspective it simply is not true. After our brave fighting men and women gave him a victory, Bush quickly set about to snatch defeat from its jaws. He did this by caving to the moral relativists and proclaiming that not only was Islam a "religion of peace", a concept destroyed by even the most cursory examination of its history, he gave the new governments, governments we put in place, carte blanched to include Sharia law in their new constitution. In doing so he gave the worst acters still left, tacit and real permission to carry on and rebuild their machines of death. We gained nothing from such foolishness, but in fact gave justification to the insurgencies that followed.

If anyone in Norfolk Virginia had been listening they probably could have heard General MacArthur turning over in his grave. It was MacArthur who had placed the restriction on the Japanese during the occupation that their new constitution must not and would not include any place for Shinto Buddhism, out of which had grown both the Bushido warrior code and the suicidal Emperor as deity worship that had cost so many lives and prolonged that terrible war.

That such suicidalism has long been present since Islam's founding is undeniable. "I present you with an army that loves death more than you love life" has been a tenant of their militarism since at least when they besieged the Persian empire. Bush gave this horror its renewed life.

Jeb's father gave away the store to the Russian communists at Malta by promising them their would be no prosecutions for either their personal crimes or communism's crimes against humanity. Its bought us a revanchist Russia commanded by so-called former communists and politicians in this country who operate as communists in everything but name. His brother by his incompetence fostered the renewed jihad from which the whole world suffers. Lord spare us please from the incompetence of another Bush in the White House and the sycofantic fools in the media who would help put him there.
