The Ethnic Excuse

Paving the way for Taking Taiwan…

(Originally posted 030314)

Excusing a Nation’s Projection of Power in order to “protect” Ethnic Groups has been used since Force was invented.

In the United States we are told, repeatedly, that Ethnicity does not matter… yet we’ve abandoned the Supremacy of the Individual and actively Demonstrated Race Does matter in our Hiring, Higher education admissions and Legal practices every day.

So how can we see it as a Ridiculous Reason to Invade another country?

Ethnic and Racial differences remain ingrained in the “Enlightened” European mind.  Racism is rampant and accepted.  These are the very same Europeans we are told we must emulate by Our Progressive Elitist class of Politicians.  (Yes, I’m referring to John Kerry et al.)  The very Europeans whom we are told have it all figured out.  The very Europeans who are surprised that anti-Semitism is exhibited not from “the far right” but by everyday “Liberal” people.

But the most interesting aspect is They see this Excuse being used by Putin as Reasonable, even Logical.  Protecting One’s Racial Heritage is as common as Hating the Other person’s.

Of course, this leads to problems.  Very serious problems.  It always has.

Once You accept this Excuse for Force as valid, as a Certain Harvard Russian Studies Professor has… sadly, you must look and see Who’s in the On-Deck position.

The most Obvious?

Taiwan.

Followed by some other minor players… like Nepal, Moldova, Slovakia, the Baltic States, Quebec, South Korea, Kashmir, the list is endless…

I know, Canada wouldn’t be upset about Quebec.  They would probably welcome handing off the corruption and crumbling infrastructure to the French for while, until they gave up and handed it back.

But the point is We are Allowing a Precedent to be set.  How do you argue that National Sovereignty has any meaning when you fail to support those Nations you Promised to support should it be challenged?  We have already ceded an Ideological High Ground by sacrificing Ideology based on Freedom and Liberty of the Individual.  So What’s left?  Our Word?  What is that worth?

Nothing.

The Chinese Leadership are not stupid, they see clearly what is being illustrated by Putin’s efforts.

And I don’t find it a coincidence that Taiwan was not permitted to fly their flag during the Sochi Olympics.

Frankly, If I were sitting in Taiwan right now I’d be looking for the closest container vessel headed south.  Right Friggin’ now.

If you still don’t get it, it’s a 1936 redux.

Godwin’s Law be damned.

Hitler took most of Europe using the “We must Protect Ethnic Germans.” as his broadcasted excuse.  Actually he was stripping the resources of those countries for his own use… but that doesn’t Play in Peoria.  So he went with Uniting German’s.  Just sounds nicer.

We are not seeing anything New here.

And the latest Non-Aggression Pact between China and Russia simply assures both parties they will not have to reserve any troops for a second front.  It just makes things easier… having to worry about one less thing when you want to focus on taking stuff you think should be yours.

The question I have is why do we let Appeasers run our country?  (It’s a rhetorical question… They sound “nice” so we put them in charge.  It’s the “If we’re only more friendly” argument that passes for reason in the Visualize Whirled Peas circle.  It’s also an ongoing effort to repress the past lessons or attributing those events to lesser humans who happened to be in charge at the time.  This belief is often spoken in the words “That could never happen today.”)

What’s interesting is, it’s as if Putin’s Generals are saying “You know Vlad, That Austrian Guy with the silly mustache had it right… he just got in a hurry.”.  (There has been a question posed regarding Bush’s inaction on Putin’s invasion of Georgia and if that made Bush seem weak.  Yes.  It did.  But the question was offered up as moral relativity giving our current Administration’s inaction.  Sorry, but it was weakness on display under Bush just as it’s weakness on display under Obama.  It doesn’t matter who was displaying it.)

If I were leading what must now be considered only a “Resistance Movement” in Ukraine I would be finding every camera I could and begging as loudly as possible for U.S. and British help.  But it has become so fashionable for Europeans to blame their problems on the United States over the last several decades that it places them in an awkward position and makes it nearly impossible to overtly ask for our help.  Their ego may be their undoing.

This must come as a relief to the current Administration.

Those in charge will do anything to prevent the perception of this being an “East vs. West” thing.  And they will certainly not entertain anything as foolish as “Good vs. Evil”.

So What Do You Do when you pretty much agree with the Guy moving his troops across Europe?

We’re doing it.

We’ll be doing more of it as we watch Taiwan get “Protected”.

But of course, that could never happen today.

(I have intentionally used Race and Ethnicity interchangeably.  When it comes to the sacrifice of the Individual in favor of Balkanization they are the same thing.)

The New Face of the SA

2014-04-30T153732Z_2097265204_GM1EA4U1G8301_RTRMADP_3_UKRAINE-CRISIS[1]

I came across a an article that brings new meaning to Family Photos.

“Pro-Russian” Ukrainian Militants take a moment out of Clubbing Ukrainians and Taking over Government Buildings to claim their place in Photo History.

For those of you not Familiar with Strurmabteilung (SA), they were the Paramilitary group made up of criminals and thugs used to enforce “peace” on behalf of the National Democratic Socialists during Hitler’s rise to power.  They were the “Army” the NAZI’s used prior to controlling Germany.

And these guys are the Modern Russian Version.  They are the Bolsheviks to the Mensheviks.  They are the Inmates running the Prison.

In the end Socialists are Socialists are Socialists.  It doesn’t matter if they’re German, Russian or American.

They are Evil.

But Evil never see’s itself that way… which lends to “charming” moments like the one we link to here.  Enjoy.

I would also like to add… this line the Media is feeding us about an “Imminent Invasion” of Ukraine is absurd.  It’s already happened and is nearing completion…  We’ve been watching it.  We see it for ourselves.  Yet many of us want to deny the episode is occurring because we do not want to admit our current Crew Occupying the White House is in way over their heads.  And most importantly to our Allies this Administration, by not honoring our treaties, have Conceded Ukraine to the Russians.

The Government desperately wants the story to go away.  Not Ukraine necessarily, but the story the World is watching The United States not standing by their friends and not keeping their word.

Just like so many other stories, the Liberal/Socialist Press will make sure that happens.  So instead of the disintegration of Freedom and Liberty around the World and Here at Home, we will be fed a constant diet of missing airplanes and bigoted NBA owners which the majority of us couldn’t explain how either affects our lives… but we’re pissed.  Just ask us.

And one last item… Because of my background I too collect Russian Propaganda Posters.  I find them historically interesting in terms of how a Government manipulates that minds of their citizens and creates the environment where Tyranny and Oppression can flourish.

However, I do not display them in my Living Room.  I can’t imagine doing so any more than I would display NAZI Propaganda in my Kitchen…  Or pictures of Pol Pot in my Shed… or Mao in the Garage.  The fact Journalist Claire Shipman and Obama Spokesperson Jay Carney do so is a valid question worth filing in the back of your mind.

Evil never sees itself that way…….


Unleash the Dogs of Diplomacy!

There is War in Ukraine and people are losing their Lives!
The United States has an Obligation to Confront the Death and Destruction being inflicted upon Innocents in the most severe way possible…

NO HUMAN COULD ENDURE SUCH A HEINOUS SHOW OF FORCE!

Overwhelm the Russian Postal System with Sternly Worded Letters Stating the Obvious!

NO ADMINISTRATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES HAS BEEN MORE CAPABLE OF SUCH AN ACTION!

I beg you, the World begs you, please DO SOMETHING!

There is NO time to waste…

For the love of all that’s Holy… or whatever non-religious thing you think fits here… Do it!


Just Concede!

This is the new Slogan for United States Foreign Policy…

and now Domestic Policy as well.

Apparently what limited effectiveness being demonstrated on the Border, just as overseas, had to be addressed.

So the Current Administration has handed down new rules dictating how our Border Patrol must conduct themselves.

From this day Forward! Border Patrol officers must retreat when faced with suspects throwing rocks.  The Officers will no longer be allowed to defend themselves.

It seems Border Patrol Agents have become too effective at deterring individuals who wish to travel to this country without entering legally…  In the simplest terms, Border Enforcement has been oppressing those who are seeking Amnesty here in the United States.

You might be saying to yourself “… this is ridiculous.”,  Among other things.

I would offer, It makes Complete Sense.

When you’re dealing with an extremely Complicated World having different policies for issues that arise Overseas versus those issues which occur right here at home is Counterproductive.  Not only that, It’s difficult, hard to manage and exhausting.  In fact, it can lead to Vast Confusion… even a break down in Morale.

In order to offer a happy, safe and nurturing workplace for U.S. Domestic Military the Administration has decided to make sure the Rules are Consistent, Transparent and Known by all.  And, they would only subject to change, without notice, by Administration Officials occasionally.  Above all, Consistency is the most important Policy Goal… unless determined otherwise.

Promoting a Friendly Border, just like our current Promotion of a Friendly Europe and South America, is incredibly important.  So the Replication of U.S. Foreign Policy within our National Borders is logical and will be Warmly Welcomed, once Those effected understand the Benefits.  The result, and implementation period, of this Improvement should mirror the Enormous Successes experienced with the Affordable Care Act.

It is Exactly this type of Progressive Thinking which will lead the United States into the 20th Century and elevates our status among Nations.  It is also this type of Mindset which will accelerate the realization of The New American Man.

Just Concede!

It’s more than a Slogan, it’s more than A Way of Life, it’s more than the Right Thing to Do…

It’s the New Normal!

You’ll get used to it, or not.

It Doesn’t Really Matter!

(“It’s Doesn’t Really Matter!” is a license Trademark of the Hillary 2016 Campaign and should not be used without express permission.  “Forward!”, “Just Concede!” and “It’s the New Normal!” are being borrowed with consent from Organizing For America and CPA respectively.)


Libertarian Dissonance

Or, Who are We?

Over the last 72 hours I’ve heard a growing number of TEA Party Conservative Types trying to square their Libertarian views with what’s going on in Europe.

The dilemma seems to be the Libertarian Ideal of Non-intervention versus the United States’ promises which have been made through Treaties.

I confess… After, After, After being Anti-Socialist, I’m more Libertarian than anything else. Even so, I believe we must honor those commitments made through treaty. It’s True I’m not interested in being the world’s policeman, and I would work diligently to remove the United States from many of the commitments we have made decades past, but until that happens we must honor those we’ve made.

The reason I feel this way is we have nothing on the World stage if not our word.  And I guarantee there will be times we need those who have made agreements with us, the U.S., to honor Their promises.

So here we are… today… facing What it Is, not What we may Wish it to be.

The desire to not intervene is understandable…

Once upon a time, The United States stood for Liberty and Freedom of the Individual. It was a radical idea born out of the Enlightenment. This idea led to the formation of a Nation governed by Law instead of Men.  We used to want Other’s to have Individual Freedom and Liberty…

We used to have a Mission.  But we have wandered far from those ideals once at the forefront of our Foreign Policy and most importantly our Domestic Policy.

Because of that I can relate to those out there who believe we need to focus on our own home-grown problems at this point in time.

And,

Do I want to run around the world and commit Men and Material in defense of people I do not know, who apparently don’t like us?  No, I don’t.

I would prefer Countries in need of our help ask us directly… that would be the alternative to treaties as far as I’m concerned. You need us? Just Yell so Everyone can hear you.  If you decide to champion Freedom and Liberty of the Individual, we’ll help.  If not, you’re on your own.  Good Luck.

But those are not the circumstances at the moment.  We have Obligations, whether we like them or not.

But that really isn’t the issue in my opinion.

The Real Problem is what makes us any different from those we wish to oppose?

That should be the Primary Question facing all of us as we watch Russia “take back” what they believe to be theirs.

What do we stand for?

Why Should the Ukraine, or any other Nation for that matter, ask for our help?

What do we represent that is worth those in other Countries to risk dying for?

These are not rhetorical questions… I’m not sure I know anymore. And I don’t think they do either, which may be why they’re not asking for our help.

All of this aside, promoting a position of standing aside because of Libertarian principles, or because you might enjoy this current Administration looking like Fools (Which they most certainly do…) is to allow those who see the faults of Communism/Socialism to remain Slaves of it.

At the End of the Day I am Anti-Socialist first. All other things second. I am not interested in giving anything to Socialists, Ever. Ever.

I hope there will be more Thinking about where this is all headed and less Reveling in the Mess created by Progressive Buffoons.  Yes, they’re idiots who cause more problems than they solve… so vote accordingly.  Right now we have a problem and it has to do with the disappearance of American Exceptionalism.

(I will issue only one warning… there will be those Progressive-Liberal Republicans like McCain and Graham out on the networks hoping to win favor with people like me.   They will not. They are a distinction without a difference when it comes to Socialism. Their time, that should never have come, is past.)

The events we’ve seen unfolding over the last several years from Georgia to Syria to Cyprus to Ukraine… to Russian Destroyers in Cuba to North Korea getting the Nuke and the Means to send it, to China poking Japan and promising to “unify” Taiwan and on and on… all leads to it “not being okay”.

There is a War going on.

All is not Calm.

And if we don’t take a position the rest of the world hears and understands clearly, all will not be calm.

What Position will that be?

What will we Stand Tall for?

(As an Aside:  The Libertarians have a similar problem with Immigration.  Ideally we are Open Borders.  The Problem is the Poison Pill of the Entitlement State.  Too many of us fail to recognize a Trap even when it is made By Fools.  Which makes Us Fools.  That’s why we must Makeaneffort.)


Novaya Sovietsky

Why is the United States bowing before the New Soviet?

This is a surprising simple question with a surprising simple answer.

Why the United States will do nothing to confront The Rise of The New Soviet is because our current Administration, and more frighteningly our entire Bureaucracy, share the same Base Ideology.

That’s it.

How can you possible fight a Battle on Ideological grounds when there is no difference in Ideology? We are seeing this clearly right here at home.  We are seeing it within our own political battles between the parties.  We are being presented the Distinctions without the Differences on a Daily basis. Now we are seeing how that translates to Foreign Policy.  “Just Concede!”

But what are you conceding?

Let me ask you folks, what is it that the United States stands for?

Free Market Capitalism?

Freedom and Liberty of the Individual?

Property Rights?

Privacy Rights?

Freedom of Religion?

Freedom to Choose?

None of the Above?….  So What Exactly?

If you can’t answer this you’re not alone.  Officials at the highest level in our Government cannot provide a cogent answer to this question and then point to any of their Actions which prove it.  As far as those in charge are concerned the forced implementation of Socialism overseas is nothing different from what is being achieved by current Domestic Policy.  It’s for their own good… They look over the horizon and see no problems.

In fact, its Good that Citizens of The World realize their Governments will be Weaponized and used against them.  It provides Order!

In the back of their minds Our Homegrown Leftist-Progressives are hoping Putin gets it right this time…  and if he doesn’t, they are hoping to get it right here at home.

Georgia has fallen, Ukraine is next.

Eastern Europe should be very concerned knowing there is no one remaining in the world who Champion’s Individual Rights and Personal Freedom.

They must feel as lonely as we do.

The Enlightened Age of Man and Nation of Laws is over.

We are Witnessing the Dawn of the Mob… The Dawn of Democratic Socialism.

(BTW: A couple of Weeks ago while watching the Opening Ceremonies of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games I stated the only thing missing from the Show was a groups of “volunteers” belting out the International in Russian.  Well, Putin one-upped me… The Closing Ceremonies provided the World with a group of “Volunteer Children” to belt out the International in Russian.  Well played Vlad… Well Played.)
