The Morning Report - 9/16/20

abratriu.jpg

Good morning, kids. First of all, the latest update on Hurricane Sally as of 5AM Eastern is that it seems to be stalled over the Gulf, but it is gaining strength and floods are expected in the Panhandle and Alabama coastal areas. Please, please, please, if you are called to evacuate de-ass with the quickness and stay safe!

Getting back to the regularly scheduled meshugas for midweek, I'm going to take a break from the violent wave of terrorism and insurrection here at home to put President Trump's stunning Middle East peace breakthrough up top. Without putting to fine a point on it, it is the most significant diplomatic achievement in decades, and in the cold light of day. potentially one of the greatest ever. The significance of the deal also goes beyond the countries involved but it also gives a gigantic black eye to globalism, and the self-anointed elites who exist to serve bureaucracy and process for process' sake.

In any case, in one fell swoop that no doubt took months or perhaps the better part of Trump's first term, the geo-political calculus of the world's most volatile and strategically important region was completely realigned, both in service of our own national security interests and really for the betterment of the nations and peoples involved.

Most important, Trump's actions have put paid to the long, failed, expensive "peace process" and its magical thinking of "land for peace," "two nations living side-by-side in peace," moral equivalence, and endless summits and agreements -- all to hide the UN, EU, and progressive American despicable demonization of Israel. That calumny has been so relentless, unjust, and irrational that it has become the face of post-holocaust anti-Semitism.

The agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain are likely the beginning of a cascade of Arab Sunni nations, perhaps even Saudi Arabia, normalizing relations with Israel. To be sure, this sea-change is based solely on those states' national economic, military, and geopolitical interests, reflecting the old tribal wisdom that "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." If this happens, Donald Trump will go down as the most consequential foreign policy president since Ronald Reagan. But don't expect a Nobel Peace Prize. If Reagan, engineer of the collapse of the Soviet Union, was passed over for Mikhail Gorbachev -- which is like recognizing the bravery of a man who fled his burning house instead of staying to redecorate -- Donald Trump doesn't stand a chance.

Excellent analysis from Bruce Thornton at Frontpage Mag, so read his whole essay. Of course he doesn't. But the fact that he was nominated - twice, for this deal and for brokering another almost equally impossible deal between Kosovo and Serbia - has got to stick in the craw of the globalists, and especially a jug-eared Hawaiian stoner who got his prize as an affirmative action participation trophy. As Groucho Marx once said, "I'd never want to belong to any club that would have me as a member. Considering that Obama is in stellar company with the likes of Le Duc Tho, Rigoberto Menchu, Yasser Arafat and Al Gore, my first instinct would be to say "thanks, but no thanks." Then again, if he does beat the 10,000-1 odds and does win, he should accept on behalf of the Victims of Communism-Socialism organization and donate the prize to them.

Returning to analysis, Another comprehensive analysis from Sukhayl Niyazov over at Human Events that is worthy of your time:

We can expect the new peace agreement to function as an icebreaker to encourage similar moves by other Arab countries in the short term. Egypt and Oman have voiced support for the Abraham Accord, and Saudi Arabia, though it did not explicitly endorse the deal, nevertheless "cautiously welcomed" the agreement, stating that it "could be viewed as positive," and opened its airspace to Israeli planes.

Such a welcome reception of the agreement by Arab states stands in stark contrast with the previous attempts at reconciliation. Egypt's president Anwar Sadat, who oversaw the signing of a peace pact with Israel in 1979, was killed by jihadists two years later (with the peace treaty being one of the motivating factors behind the assassination). Following the adoption of the deal, the entire Arab world (with the exception of Sudan) condemned Sadat's efforts, and Egypt's membership in the Arab League was suspended. U.A.E 's agreement with Israel, however, has been received much more positively -- with the Arab League refusing to condemn the new peace agreement.

Lastly, Michael Goodwin from the New York Post:

[The Palestinians] accuse their fellow Arabs of betrayal and stabbing them in the back. But in fact, it is two generations of Palestinian leadership that have betrayed their own people and forfeited their veto over peace.

They lost that veto because Donald Trump took it from them. The president, breaking the mold set by his predecessors. Still, he offered the Palestinians a deal, the "deal of the century," he called it, but they responded with insults and intransigence.

It was a huge mistake, one that reduced them to disheartened spectators as the world watched in astonishment as two more Arab countries took the historic step of normalizing relations with the Jewish State. The likelihood that others will soon follow, possibly including Saudi Arabia, means that Israel will no longer be a pariah in its own neighborhood.

It is almost impossible to overstate the importance of these agreements. The Mideast has long been the world's hottest hot spot and now, seemingly all of a sudden, peace is breaking out.

If nothing else, the agreements will push the anti-Semites at the United Nations to find a new scapegoat for the world's problems. Even Rep. Ilhan Omar will be hard-pressed to come up with a vile objection this time.

Iran, of course, is the other major loser of the day. The Arab monarchies it has threatened repeatedly are lining up to join America and Israel in an alliance against the mad mullahs. As Trump put it in his remarks, "We're here to change the course of history."

Big decisions have big consequences and Trump's Mideast policy is remarkable not only for its success, but also for its unprecedented approach. The contrast with Barack Obama is especially dramatic.

I would disagree with Goodwin's assessment of the Joo-haters in the UN and Bro-Fo Omar/Nur. If Jews never existed they'd have to invent them so they could have a scapegoat to blame their own failures on, but I digress. If you scan any Leftist propaganda organ you will either see no coverage of this or you will see it disparaged, ridiculed or otherwise lied about. The front page of the NY Times does have it in the lead, but there is no banner headline for which it is justly worthy. And their phrasing of the sub-head in terms of Trump and the evil Jooz spitting on the poor, sweet, innocent Palestinians. Or look at the link about Juan "Wan" Williams just reflexively supporting Malig-Nancy Pelosi's assertion that this is all a "distraction." You know, considering that the public - including now a growing contingent of Democrats - stuck in places like Portland, Kenosha and Minneapolis are scared shitless that that Party's unofficial/official terrorist brigades are going to come after them, and as a result are perhaps now jumping ship to vote Republican, Williams should kiss Trump's ass for this "distraction."

As I alluded to at the top, this is not just a sea-change in geopolitics, it underscores the complete failure of the so-called elite political class here and abroad. That's because their decades of failure is not just failure; it's a scam. Remember that the first rule of bureaucracies is to perpetuate and keep growing. If bureaucracies actually solved problems, they would put themselves out of business. Same goes for the race hustle. Anyone who thought that the signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, or affirmative action, or the Community Reinvestment Act, or the multiple trillions of dollars thrown at the "problem" of race in America, or most assuredly the election and then re-election of Barack Obama was going to finally end racism in America once and for all, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and BLM want you to put your ear in their megaphone because they have something to tell you.

Same thing holds true for "the peace process." If you actually solve the problem by ending conflict, you put a whole lot of foreign service officers, diplomats and their staffs and expense accounts - as well as potentially generals, admirals and their DoD budget lines - out of business. And as an aside, but somewhat related, Lt. Colonel Doughboy Bearclaw Vindman, who had the unmitigated gall to commit insubordination by subverting his commander-in-chief and now publicly disparaging him for going against what he insisted was correct foreign policy (ignoring the rather salient fact that the President sets that policy, not the State Dept.), in the eyes of any reasonable person looks like a complete asshole, given what the man he disparaged has just achieved.

Finally, I do have one caveat and it is a question that has to be considered; are the mutual and absolute common ground on a whole host of secular and security issues, as well as even some cultural common ground enough to counteract the teachings of the Koran vis a vis Jews and other infidels? Ultimately, peace is never achieved between political leaders but between the average person in the street. If we examine the 40 years of "peace" between Israel and Egypt, the prospects are not so hot. That said, Egypt is a third world country where the UAE and Bahrain are not. And while Islam has remained stagnant and even regressive for 1,500 years, the world in many aspects has changed radically over the past 40-50. Certainly in the last four. The more that these countries can cooperate, especially considering Iran is still a force to be reckoned with and now perhaps Turkey as well, the more that other barriers break down and bonds formed. Between average people, and not just national leaders.

Winds of change. Yet again, all because Donald Trump won in 2016.

65 The Palestinians could have had their own state several times over the

train of history has left them standing at the station.


Democrats would never have let this happen. Grievance politics would have required the Democrats to refuse to sign this deal. How are Democrats any different than Palestinians? Another example for voters: If you want peace, if you want an "end to endless war", like your bumper stickers all say, vote Donald Trump.

93 Old news, probably covered by JJ but I just saw this


California imposes racial quotas on corporate boards

California's legislature is mandating racial quotas for corporate boards. "Experts say" that "runs afoul of constitutional principles," according to the Wall Street Journal. "New legislation passed over the weekend would mandate that publicly-traded companies headquartered in the state must have at least one director from a minority community by the close of 2021. There are more than 500 public companies based in California in the Russell 3000, which accounts for the vast majority of companies."

By 2022, the quotas will increase. Firms will be required to have at least 3 minority directors if their board has 9 or more directors, or at least two minorities if their board has between 5 and 8 directors.

The legislation is indeed unconstitutional. The bill, AB-979, is described as promoting "racial diversity."


libertyunyielding.com

Over and over the Democrats call minorities dumb dumbs. They can't start their own businesses. Can't run their own businesses. And can't own a business with their own board of directors. So hop on the backs of other hard working people, say the Democrats.

94 The Other Half of Socialism: Independence from Our Fellow Man

That was better than I expected. It makes a point that our side all too often overlooks. There is a very real sense in which the left believes in "freedom". And it's not meaningless or cynical. It is to free man from any and all constraints. E.g., on comment says he guesses Rousseau wasn't keen on the family. Check out Jean-Jacques's bio.

I'm not sure they can go much further than freeing you from being a man or a woman, but they'll try. Florence King once wrote that tracing how many problems stem from Rousseau is like finding how many words you can for from "antidisestablishmentarianism."

Serious question: How do we do that when everyone in a position of power, influence and authority in the school system is a radical leftist?

Teaching and being involved with schooling in general (principals, superintendents, etc) is not typically something conservatives want to do. Unless one really has a calling to teach, it's not a very attractive profession. Low paying, high stress, low reward job of putting up with a bunch of brats who have no respect for you and a lot of times do everything to make your job more difficult.

The Left is attracted to the positions, because they love control and power and influence over people. That's that's the draw for them. And then they also get off on complaining they don't get paid enough.

Save for conservatives making the sacrifice to have one parent homeschool their kids, I'm not sure there is any easy way to take back the schools. Because even if conservatives go into teaching, the Left still holds the power of the principal and superintendent positions and can force teachers to do what they want.

By 2022, the quotas will increase. Firms will be required to have at least 3 minority directors if their board has 9 or more directors, or at least two minorities if their board has between 5 and 8 directors.

Hmm, that's way, way above actual racial statistics in this country.

They have Hollywood out there, too. Do the same for every movie. Actors, directors, executives, all people behind the scenes including cameramen and gofers. Let's turn those tables over on every one of those leftists who love to spout their Democrat-approved lines at all the awards shows. I want the rug pulled out from underneath all of them. Not just for Best Picture. Upend their entire existences with racial quotas. Give them what they advocate for by supporting the political fools they support. Good and hard.

Anyway, she kept saying they were waiting for Sundown Joe to speak, and Fox would broadcast it when he did. He never showed up during her show. Did he ever show up at all?

My wife wants to know if the Sundown effect meant he skipped his speech last night. Does anyone know?

The girl spawn is 14, a freshman in high school taking honors geometry and biology. Both of the spawn attended or currently attend the same small town public school that I attended. Both of them learned about the holocaust in school. The social studies block in elementary school gives a lot of info on that and it's covered every year of elementary school. Middle school covers it in history and social studies also. I don't actually remember there being as much emphasis on this when I was in school there.

Combine that with generation after generation of black kids who can go to college for free just by graduating with a C average, who then go on to have preferences in hiring, promotions, and bulletproof job security based on nothing beyond racial quotas, who have been convinced that they're oppressed and who honestly believe they're oppressed all while riding the bigotry of low expectations to the top. We literally have twenty five year old multimillionaires who play a kids game for a living and who will retire multimillionaires before they're 30 telling elderly white parents of adult Downs syndrome children about the oppression the multimillionaires struggle with every day.

Seven to twelve generations of kids since the 80s were never told "that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard" because they are black. They were never told "you're not qualified" because they are black.

How do you get good? Practice.

How do you win? Live fire.

Trump is literally doing a dry run of the debate, testing exactly what to say to reach the millions who will tune is expecting the media caricature of Trump
And it's the same reason he's come out and given a presser after every big Biden speech.

He took the same hostile questions he's going to get at the debate--live, no teleprompter-- and tested the best answer.

Right now, there's a team tracking every single conversation on the internet-- what are they sharing, saying, adopting as their argument.

While biden is taking scripted softballs and fed answers.

Trump is not taking any chance with the debate.

253 The Biden strategy has clearly become to mimic Trump on most issues an appear to walk back the radical agenda he supported at the convention. Last night Stephanopolos was providing air cover for Biden on that tactic, saying he "changed" certain positions.

It's aimed at confusing voters who are not very well educated on the issues or are leaning Biden and want to find a reason to vote for him- and you know what? It may work because Team Trump is not talking about the issues and stark differences.

Why? There is zero downside, and multiple possible benefits, to engaging these people.

He knows it's a setup. Nobody is going to watch this thing and go from pro Trump to anti Trump. But there is a real chance that at least some people hear him engage in real policy issues for the first time since the debates with felonia. And that can very easily kick off a preference cascade if it reaches the right ears.

If nothing else, as noted above, it's good practice. And it shows him engaging, rather than cowering in fear like the pedophile.

My sisters friend has a cousin who knows a nurse practitioner and she says that it is proof Trump has severe super end stage dementia and definitely had a major stroke. I love trump, but electing him to another term would be doing him a disservice. It is lucky for America that we have an experienced, energetic, mentally and physically fit credibly accused rapist and white nationalist and satanist endorsed Joe Biden to vote for this fall. We can all rest assured that while it may not be our beloved Trump, the steady hand of a master statesman will be at the helm. We can all look forward to 2024 when we can elect a pragmatic conservative like John Kasich to the Oval Office.

And I'm sorry you believe fallacy and non sequiturs constitute a reasonable response to what I stated.

I believe winning over voters on the margins is exactly what he needs to do. I disagree completely with the tactics. This didn't do anything to win those votes. It allowed him to be gratuitously and constantly attacked both from the alleged voters and the far left Democrat host.

I'd go for running businesses, staying gainfully employed, and yes, tending to our families, whether raising our kids or looking after our elderly relatives or both at the same time.

It's interesting to note we're seeing the exact same thing at the local level in many places.

Conservatives expect to uphold their end of the social contract, and the politicians/LEOs uphold theirs. I leave you alone, you leave me alone, God bless America and if someone breaks the law it is dealt with relatively equally and accordingly. That's how things stay in balance. That's what I naively thought (R)s were interested in for a long time (hahaha, yeah, I know).

Now we're waking up and seeing that our neighbors weren't interested in freedom at all, and the police and politicians in Democrat-controlled areas will actively protect them and punish you.

We can vote our way out of this. Sadly, the Democrats don't accept election results.

301 Trump is a salesman. A master salesman. Any good salesman will tell you the most important thing you can do make a sale is to earn the trust of your customer. People buy from people they trust.

That's how the deals in the Middle East got done. Fundamentally, they trust Trump because he has earned their trust. They may not love him, may not even really like him, but they trust he will keep his word. They never trusted Obama or any other recent president for good reason.

That's why Trump went on ABC last night. It's why he is successful in courting a growing percentage of minority voters. All of them? No, of course not. But enough to make a difference.

Over and over he walks into the lion's den and says "You've heard a lot of other people tell you about me but now I'm here to tell you about me. Ask me anything you want and I will tell you what I think. No handlers, no spinners, no teleprompter.".

According to the reporter, he's behind hundreds of US election rules, mail in, voter id, signature verification lawsuits, and has this method in mind to steal or overturn 2020. Big Big story if true.

You need to pick your battles. Sometimes you win by not fighting a battle at all.

He should have either skipped last night or negotiated better terms. There were a lot of good responses to the questions he could have proffered. The man has done a lot. Especially for the African American community. He responded with very little specificity- which is a shame. That's what he was there to provide and that audience doesn't usually get.

By the way, the angry guy who said America was never great for black Americans. Fuck you.

Took until 1945 for a vaccine for the 1918 flu.

Posted by: rickb223 at September 16, 2020 08:08 AM

Took 50 years for the polio vaccine.

And when they did the testing for it on children in 1954-1955, it was a huge risk. But parents were so desperate to protect their children, that they volunteered them for the study.

Turns out that it was successful, but that was still a huge risk.

And just to keep the scoreboard straight (we discussed this yesterday), that Big Foreign Policy Genius, John Bolton, wrote in his book that Trump was a foreign policy disaster because he trusted Jared Kushner to do his negotiating, and that Kushner didn't know anything because he was such an amateur, and he was going to completely ruin all diplomacy in the Middle East because he wouldn't listen to what John Bolton was telling him to do, and he wouldn't do what all the Career Experts told him to do. Yep, according to Bolton, failure was guaranteed, and it was all Trump's fault.

I do believe John Bolton knows his foreign policy. (quit throwing crap at me and read on) But, here's the fundamental problem, and the older I get, the more I see this repeat itself, over and over again, either on the personal level or elsewhere.

The problem is that John Bolton is an asshole. If he wasn't an asshole, he would get much further. Hell, he might even be SecState. But, there's that fundamental issue that is in his way.

The moral of the story: Don't Be An Asshole.

As most of you know I have been droning on about Ukraine for a long time. I've tried to make the point that the 2014 Maidan Revolution wasn't a revolution at all. It was a coup. And we helped run it.

Many of the same people involved with the Russia hoax were also involved with the Ukraine hoax and they are now part of trying to rig this election. They are using similar tactics including owning the media to shape narratives and control information, "grassroots" uprising, peaceful protests that turn violent and a chaotic election process that will allow them to contest it and call the whole thing invalid. Their goal isn't necessarily to win the election but to cause enough turmoil that the results can be made to appear corrupt.

They won't let him on the air when he can legitimately boast of an achievement, as we have seen with the Middle East.

Beyond his re-election, my only wish for a second Trump term is that he goes full Antifa on the MFM. Doxx them, RICO them, SWAT them, have them thrown out of the White House at bayonet point.

And now it turns out that he has been a complete f'ing idiot the entire time, a man who knew less and understood less than even the average reader of this blog did.

And this is not a problem. It is only a problem if you are committed to multinational mega-deals. Trump isn't. It is writ large across his foreign policy. We see it bigly in trade. Trade doesn't get the press that peace does, but it is the same approach in both cases. The approach works, it has just been decried since 1918 because the Great War was misattributed to it.

When Trump came into office, one of his first acts was to scuttle the TPP. What replaced it? Bilateral deals between us and Korea and Japan and Taiwan and some others. The same with the Abraham Accord - it isn't an omnibus regional peace deal that will be impossible to achieve. It is just a couple of bilateral deals with more to come. This approach works. Why complicate things with a bunch of multinational tomfoolery where the US - and only the US - takes it in the shorts?

I want four more years of Trump, even if the *only* positive outcome we get is a return to opportunistic bilateral negotiation as the normal approach to international affairs.

402 The big thing I have against John Bolton is that while he was in office, he tried as hard as he could to get Trump to start a Shooting War with Iran and the Norks. Trump thought this would be a huge mistake, and I agree, it would have been, and still is. Encirclement and containment work better and with far less casualties than bombs and missiles, even though the latter are a lot more fun in the short term. Trump saw a way to win that didn't involve getting a lot of people killed.

410 Despicito so appropriate a song for SlowJoe
Lyrics in English
Slowly
Despacito

I want to breathe your neck slowly
Quiero respirar tu cuello despacito

Let me tell you things in my ear
Deja que te diga cosas al oído

So that you remember if you are not with me
Para que te acuerdes si no estás conmigo

Slowly
Despacito

I want to undress you with kisses slowly
Quiero desnudarte a besos despacito

Ha Ha - breathe your neck slowly - should put all his sniffing pics to song in English!

It's definitely intentional, but I am not sure there is a fully fleshed-out or strategized endgame. Trump wants to make progress. He's taking what he can get, from whom he can get it. If it goes well, others will join. If "others" includes heavies like the KSA, so much the better.

Heh, true.

Think the other thing is that the DC swamp has a personal investment in this - their careers, their egos and legacies, their CV. They are happy to sell out America/Americans in order to get praise and recognition from the political-think tank-diplomacy class in-group. See John F'ing Kerry and the Iran deal. Also, I have had the pleasure of working with some people who become obsessed with unsolvable problems -- they seem to get off on meeting, discussions, consideration, and so on. The process is such an intellectual challenge they would rather keep searching for the perfect solution rather then picking from what's available and moving on. Kinda think there are a lot of people like that in DC -- a career of attending meetings, conferences, etc. where they can endlessly bloviate on the ME dilemma blah blah blah.

Kushner and Trump appear tp come at it from a completely new angle: business deal. No pretending that it isn't about "what's in it for each of us?" as well as "you need to make it a good deal for us/our country, not just my legacy." They are using business to get in the door, which leads to peace -- to keep the mutually profitable deal in place. They seem to be making them invest in the deal, not with egos or reputations, but with their countries' respective economic health.

The real damage comes a year or two from now, when the contracts get renegotiated and the networks - and their advertisers - say, "Uhhh, no. We want a 30% discount as compared to last time." And then the salary caps shrink. And then player contracts shrink. And then the idiots that pulled this stunt get furious and will talk again about racism...

Back in the office again!

My writing group is considering meeting in person sometime in October, mainly to have dinner and re-establish contact. I'm fine with it. But I dread telling them that I won't wear a mask, even if by some wild chance Gov. John "Bells in his Brain" Edwards (D) drops the silly face diaper mandate by then. I can explain about the medical exemption (and I have the letter from my doctor now), but I won't sit there looking at just their eyes above the masks.

Of course, the order allows you to take the mask off while you eat. But it's absolutely pointless, as you all know, to wear the thing before and after you eat, as if the virus knows the difference and would politely hover while you're having dinner, then only attack you when you get up from the table.

No pretending that it isn't about "what's in it for each of us?" as well as "you need to make it a good deal for us/our country, not just my legacy." They are using business to get in the door, which leads to peace -- to keep the mutually profitable deal in place. They seem to be making them invest in the deal, not with egos or reputations, but with their countries' respective economic health.
Posted by: Lizzy at September 16, 2020 09:18 AM (bDqIh)

I agree with you, Trump brought a businessman's sense to getting a deal done, rather than an Academic/Diplomatic point of view. When facing a huge problem with dozens of players all having conflicting goals, the Academic wants to work forever to create the Perfect Agreement, the one piece of paper that will Solve Everything. Of course, this is impossible.

Trump, with his business experience, looked at it and said "okay a lot of these people are intransigent. let's forget them for the moment. These guys over here actually have some goals that can be met, so lets make a deal with the people we can work with." And once a deal is in place with the motivated few, then suddenly everyone else sees that those guys got a whole lot of what they asked for, and more. That starts looking real good, and more players start to find reasons to get in on it. You create a preference cascade, and at the end almost everyone is in on it with only a few soreheads standing on the outside and looking in at the Celebration Party.

Disgusting.

Also saw a "Rising Serpent" twitter thread about Act Blue, the online fundraising site used by Democrats and Lefty organizations, including BLM.

A couple of key things:
-- Act Blue has a policy that if the organization for whom they collect donations does not accept transfer of donations within 60 days, the money is considered available to Act Blue to apply to other Act Blue fundraising clients.

-- Act Blue does not do the CC verification (remember Obama's site doing the same thing?) and a donor can skip listing their employer if they declare themselves unemployed. As a result, ~ 50% of their donations are by "unemployed" people using giftcard-type credit cards, meaning: untraceable/outside of campaign donation oversight/verification.

OK, so think of how BLM can refer people to Act Blue in June-July)August when they are hauling 100's of millions in donations, and then choose to not accept some of that money, leaving it available to Act Blue to move it to Biden's campaign and others. And with 50% of those donations being untraceable to begin with, now laundered in bulk from BLM to Biden and others.

The whole thing is a money laundering scam.

I've found a local station that offers 87 octane ethanol-free gas. It's .30 more per gallon than Exxon's E10, and my 2016 car does not get enough better mileage on it to make it pay for itself . . . but I fondly believe it's better for the car's digestion.

The ad agencies had a dry run of that conversation when the NBA players threatened to stop the playoffs. The playoffs continued, by the way.

The ad agencies are not happy. The networks are not happy.

I can imagine the NFL suddenly deciding that politics on the field is a generally bad idea, but it's going to take another week or two at least. They're afraid of their own players, but once the conversations on future pay for the players start, that should become an easy decision for them all to make.

548 402 The big thing I have against John Bolton is that while he was in office, he tried as hard as he could to get Trump to start a Shooting War with Iran and the Norks. Trump thought this would be a huge mistake, and I agree, it would have been, and still is. Encirclement and containment work better and with far less casualties than bombs and missiles, even though the latter are a lot more fun in the short term. Trump saw a way to win that didn't involve getting a lot of people killed.
Posted by: Tom Servo at September 16, 2020 09:11 AM (V2Yro)

Being a "hawk" and having a tough foreign policy is one thing. But applying force should always be the last option because once that happens, all bets are off.

I am FAR from being an isolationist - the United States has been receiving "blowback" since July 4, 1776 and in order for the flag to fly, we NEED to be the meanest S.O.B.s out there. I agree we need a strong national defense and the idea of containment you espouse is perfect. The bad guys need to know that we are to be crossed at their great personal risk. (Even the Soviets back in the day possessed the instinct of self-preservation.) But not to the point we go in with guns blazing, all the time.

(Besides, if you have a strong economy, national defense and a good diplomatic corps that does not get too big for their britches and doesn't forget who they work for, virtually no one will fuck with you except the occasional terrorist, nutcase, and asshole who needs to be promptly stomped.)

Continuous war ... then the grifters can sell their American War Machine influence around the world (Ukraine, Qatar, China ?).


Erdogan was/is attempting some caliphate maybe, and has ties to Iran, while we have to coddle him for strategic NATO use (I guess). Russia comes into play ... they sure gave money to Clintons hand over fist, for access to our uranium and tech (Skolkovo). But then with Trump, they became the major enemy again.


Too many Islamic factions for me to keep track of. But our generals seem to have no problem enriching China and watching them rise ... and maybe even being on their payroll.
