All the attention over the epoch vote by Crimean’s to leave the Ukraine makes for a timely review of other separatist factions that are seeking a similar resolution. The List of active separatist movements in Europe is exhaustive. The immediate impression is that a pervasive discontent, shared by legions of subjects, who want independence and self-determination, will be hard to derail. When European autocratic and aristocrats ruled, the only option was revolution. Today the descendants of the old regimes still wheeled power under the guise of democratically elected authorities. However, separatist sentiment does not mean the same to every splinter group.
Britain: Waking on Friday to see that the British had voted to unchain themselves from their socialist EU masters in Brussels was a marvelous experience. In so doing, they decided to return to adulthood, and to running their own nation, in their own interests, for better or worse. On both sides of the Atlantic, the leftist media will now thunder about the xenophobia of Britons and their stupid and self-destructive behavior in seeing and accepting the economic costs of reestablishing nationhood. The name-calling will continue but the economic roils will slowly calm, and the nation’s revenues will increase as payments are halted to the EU’s terminally begging and congenitally wasteful adolescent states, such as Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain. Hereon, Britain’s government also can do more to secure the nation by making and enforcing immigration laws that meet the majority’s demands, by ending military intervention abroad, and by legally deporting those deemed dangerous or subversive, all without the busybody milquetoasts in Brussels gumming up the works.
Most of what you learned from orthodox history schooling is flat out wrong. Add into this indoctrination, the movie accounts that portray the reasons and motivations about the conflict during World War II. Especially, the European theater which has been obfuscated in scores of books and political analysis, mislead and distort the facts. All the efforts to chastise the NAZI regime profoundly ignore the true end results of the German surrender. To the victors belongs the descriptive end account of the narrative. Yet, when you peel back the onion, the tears that are exposed carry forward well into the next millennium.
A pivotal component of the process that manipulates the legislative cover that claims to be representative federalism is the consortium of influential pressure and bribe distributors that populate the lobbying capital of the planet, K Street. This group of ex elected officials, shyster lawyers and con artists make up the revolving door of access and sway that keeps the DC Scalawag Culture Preserves Scoundrels alive and expanding. Corporatist Lobbying Replaced a Free Market long ago. The Camelot dream has become the granddaddy of all extenders.
U.S.-vs-Islamic State: As IS-held cities fall, America must come home, avoid the next, far harder war
We are likely to hear much crowing about the martial prowess of the U.S.-Europe trained, Iranian-led, and Shia-dominated Iraqi Army as IS withdraws – if only temporarily – from Ramadi and Fallujah. Cities, however, do not equal power in an insurgency. They more accurately impose a significant burden, one that requires the expertise to manage a not always supportive population, provide social services, potable water, electricity and gas, road repair, garbage collection, etc. It also requires something close to a trained bureaucracy, police force, and conventional army and air force for effective defense.
Before Obama, Hillary Clinton, and their party pit Americans against each other by cynically twisting the Islamic State’s Orlando victory into a so-called hate crime, and use it as a tool to negate the right to bear arms, Americans must recognize that it is the common policies and actions of the Obama/Clinton, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton administrations that motivated the killing or wounding of more than 100 of their fellow citizens in a Florida nightclub. Americans also must accept that there are many more such events to come. The reality is that the dead and wounded were killed by a team, Omar Siddique Mateen as the shooter, and Obama, Bush, and the Clintons as his indispensable facilitators. A more effective unit to kill Americans is hard to conceive.
Gun ownership in America is the primary reason why the internationalists fear the wrath of an armed citizenry. The destruction of the Bill of Rights is a prime objective of the beltway statists. Conversely, the elimination of the remnants of an American federalist constitutional republic is the key eliminate required for imposition of the global Illuminati matrix. The primal reason to foster a society that bears weapons is to maintain the means to fight tyranny on your native soil. The United Nations is a subversive and diabolical appendage of world despotism. The choice has never been clearer. Lock and load or kneel and grovel. Guns are mere instruments of force or defense, while government oppression is the reason why the public must possess the means of accountability.
The phrase, New World Order, just does not seem comprehensive enough to explain the circumstances that mankind is living under. The German expression, “weltanschauung” referred to as a philosophical view or apprehension of the universe is often used to ponder the human condition. Individual beliefs and understanding of the very nature of mankind was once seen in the convention of the Greek school of thought reflected in the teaching of Plato and Aristotle. Western Civilization essentially is based upon these principles and the cosmology of our heritage is involved and inseparable with an understanding of our spiritual dimension.

A good friend of mine, a retired Colonel, recently asked if I had noticed that each time Obama, Clinton, Biden, Warren, Sanders, or any other senior Democrat says “that’s not who we are”, it always is in an effort to stop or denigrate – probably on the orders of George Soros — something that would increase the republic’s social cohesion, reduce its debt, improve its security, and strengthen its independence and sovereignty.
How low can the Lunatic Left go to allow, accept and advance Anti-Free Speech? If the gang of punks at a Trump San Jose rally in California is an indication, the bottom has a long way to go. Decorum is essential when intelligent protest is the objective. However, when the intent is to disrupt or assault and silence supporters of an anti-establishment GOP nominee, a simple question needs to be asked. Who are these organized goons working for? Once upon a time, the UC Berkeley’s Free Speech Movement “demanded their right to free speech and academic freedom”.
The Department of Justice has a long record of acting as the dictatorship of jurisprudence. Acting like council to the mob, the “Consigliore” Attorney General plots protection rackets for the ultimate organized crime syndicate. Eric Holder is the latest in a long line of lawyers that distort and stretch credibility to the theater of the absurd. Making up legal arguments to distort or conceal culpability is a prime prerequisite to serve as the chief law enforcement thug for the current President.
“Clinton to Paint Trump as a Risk to World Order.”
Thus did page one of Thursday’s New York Times tee up Hillary Clinton’s big San Diego speech on foreign policy.
Inside the Times, the headline was edited to underline the point:
“Clinton to Portray Trump as Risk to the World.”
The Times promoted the speech as “scorching,” a “sweeping and fearsome portrayal of Mr. Trump, one that the Clinton campaign will deliver like a drumbeat to voters in the coming months.”
