Okay, I respect Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist as one of the few commentators who analyze events calmly, without the partisan hysteria and confirmation bias that’s so glaringly obvious on the right as well as the left. But when I saw this tweet touting Victor Davis Hanson as a “great historian,” I had to laugh: if his revisionist “history” of the Iraq war, which he fulsomely supported, is any indication of his skills in this realm, then we’ll have to redefine greatness as the ability to express a large number of falsehoods without pausing for breath. According to Hanson, we won the Iraq war, which was a great success up until the time when we inexplicably abandoned our great victory and headed homeward: the rise of ISIS, the triumph of Iranian influence, and the rather humiliating expulsion of US troops by order of the Iraqi government don’t figure in this “historical” account.

National Defense Strategy Is Offensive – American Free Press

February 6, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

On Jan. 19, Secretary of Defense James Mattis delivered prepared remarks on the upcoming year’s National Defense Strategy report. His comments were based on the unclassified summary of the document, which was also released on the same day.

Reading the report is illuminating, to say the least, and somewhat disconcerting, as it focuses very little on actual defense of the realm and relates much more to offensive military action that might be employed to further certain debatable national interests. Occasionally, it is actually delusional, as when it refers to consolidating “gains we have made in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and elsewhere.”

In 1947, a group of scientists who participated in the Manhattan Project—America’s crash wartime effort to manufacture an atom bomb during the Second World War—unveiled what it called the “Doomsday Clock” to graphically convey their concern over the danger posed by nuclear weapons to the survival of humanity.

The protesters seek to overthrow Thailand’s independent institutions including its military and constitutional monarchy, and return US proxies to power, particularly billionaire and former prime minister, Thaksin Shinawatra and his Pheu Thai Party (PTP). Thaksin Shinawatra is a convicted criminal who fled Thailand to evade a two year jail sentence and a myriad of court cases still pending trial.

Joe McCarthy vs Joe Welch: What REALLY Happened?

January 31, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Whenever a man of true accomplishment ventures out beyond his field of expertise; he runs the risk of falling into the trap of superficiality and inserting his foot in his mouth. And so it is, once again, with the esteemed anti-Establishment economist and columnist/blogger, Paul Craig Roberts. After having twice been previously corrected by your favorite alternative historian here over erroneous statements regarding the meaning of ‘Deutschland Uber Alles’ (here), and the Soviet-German war within World War II (here) — Roberts has repeated a big lie about the late great anti-Communist Senator, Joseph McCarthy (R-WI).

Dianne Feinstein’s Folly in the Trump-Russia Probe

January 24, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

First, the House Permanent Select Intelligence Committee voted unanimously to release the transcript of Glenn Simpson’s testimony of Nov. 14, 2017. This testimony differed little from that Simpson provided to the Senate Judiciary Committee. However, under questioning, Simpson conceded that the Steele dossier never made the transition from accusation to fact and that the memorandums produced under contract were little more than broad allegations based upon unproved circumstantial evidence. Moreover, when  questioned by the House, Simpson acknowledged a relationship with Bruce Ohr, the former associate deputy attorney general, that predated the 2016 presidential election, and that both he and Steele (who also had a long-standing relationship with Ohr) met with Ohr to discuss the dossier.

Trump’s hyper-militarism flies in the face of his ‘America First’ doctrine

January 9, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Despite US President Donald Trump’s proclamations that the country will be stepping back from its role of policing the world, the US global military footprint under Trump is escalating at an alarming level. On the 2016 US presidential campaign trail, then-candidate Trump promised to a return to the era of American isolationism, pledging to put “America first,” and an end to costly foreign wars.

In the Russian Collusion Debate, Who’s Fooling Who? | The American Conservative

January 8, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Mr. Steele was contracted by Fusion GPS sometime after June 17; less than three days later, he was able to produce a report that made use of no fewer than seven named senior sources, as well as making use of a “company ethnic Russian operative” to conduct an investigation inside Russia. This time frame is unrealistically short, suggesting that Steele himself was spoon fed a pre-packaged storyline—in short, “Kremlin disinformation.” Seen in this light, the Papadopoulos story is more about a Russian campaign to neutralize a future American president as part of its ongoing effort to undermine American power and prestige than it is about collusion between this candidate and Russia to get him elected. That the FBI, and others, would rely on such information to actively undermine the legitimacy of a duly elected American president remains a topic which Republicans in Congress would do well to continue to investigate.

The major—perhaps only—redeeming virtue of Donald’s ersatz campaign platform was his clear intent to seek a rapprochement with Russia, revamp America’s commitments to NATO and other cold war relics and to discard “Regime Change” as the core tenant of foreign policy in favor of an “America First” approach to domestic security and safety.

Is Iran the “World’s Leading Sponsor of Terrorism?”

January 3, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

We are concerned by recent strident and stark public statements from key members of your Administration that paint Iran in very alarmist terms. The average American, without the benefit of history, could easily be persuaded that Iran poses an imminent threat and that there is no alternative for us but military conflict.

We find this uncomfortably familiar territory. Ten years ago former President George W. Bush was contemplating a war with Iran when, in November of 2007, intelligence analysts issued a formal National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) debunking the prevailing conventional wisdom; namely, that Iran was on the verge of getting a nuclear weapon.  The NIE concluded that Iran had stopped working on a nuclear weapon in 2003.

The anonymous Internet legend known as “Q” told us that “GS” — George Soros — would be sent to “a special place” for organizing voter fraud, among other crimes. Rumors have been swirling that the Globalist mega-mogul has been sent to Guantanamo Bay prison. As unbelievable as this may seem, it is indeed strange that Soros, a frequent “tweeter” — has not posted a single tweet since November 26, 2017.

People have asked us to refute the new movie starring Gary Oldman, about “Saint” Winston Churchill, the man of iniquity who targeted the civilian center of every major German city for merciless fire-bombing. This holocaust of some 600,000 souls is not an issue for Hollywood. The dead were of the wrong religion and nationality. Holocaust denial is permissible with regard to them. As most of you know the inmates are in charge of the asylum and as long as a mass-murdering barbarian like Churchill, who destroy

Distinguished Generals! – STEVE PIECZENIK TALKS

January 2, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Both as a physician and senior military officer, I learned that above all else ‘do no harm’. If we failed, we would have to resign or be punished accordingly. No civilian POTUS or politician has ever worked under that credo of pragmatic, efficient strategic decision-making and tactical-implementation. Words and ideas will no longer send me/others to places that I, or my American compatriots, might want to go. Only the deeds of professionals who will be held accountable for their actions through the fog of war will remain within the text of historical accomplishments—no matter how ‘twitter-like’ they may appear, or sound.

President Trump’s Jerusalem Decision: the End of Hegemony? | Veterans News Now

Most important, Trump’s proclamation of a unipolar world based on his notion of the US’s economic power has collapsed. Israel, despite Haley’s bluster and list-taking, has no legitimacy. It’s continued Mossad assassinations of leading Palestinians and others and the increasing IDF slaughter of the spontaneous Palestinian civilian resistance has failed to improve its international standing – except among Guatemalan torturers.

Never let it be said that “the powers-that-be” (cough cough) do not reward their loyal goy agents generously. Here we are, more than a half-century after Winston Churchill, that vile, bumbling, drunken, cigar-chomping, lying, scheming, plagiarizing, sodomizing, warmongering, genocidal blob of human feces departed for hell — and he is still being glorified on the big screen for the next degeneration of boobs to worship.Hazmat suits and goggles on, boys and girls. Let’s dive into Sulzberger’s cesspool to review the review of Darkest Hour – Hollyweird’s latest homage to the demonic beast we call, “The British Mad Dog.”
