Musings on the Week

May 12, 2018


America – “America is a nation with a mission… Our aim is a democratic peace – a peace founded upon the dignity and rights of every man and woman."  George W. Bush.

Politics – Donald Trump is the first president in American history with no military or government experience, a true civilian president, who puts the needs of America First.

Politics – President Trump may be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for the results of his North Korean peace and denuclearization talks, bringing peace to this region after 60 years.

Politics – President Obama received an affirmative action Nobel Prize because he was black and for his world tour apologizing for who we are as Americans and begging forgiveness.

Politics – Marxism in practice didn’t work out so well, as communist regimes produced the greatest ideological carnage in human history, killing more than a hundred million people.

Politics – Democrats are the definition of insanity: “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” as they endorse socialism (and communism) which has failed repeatedly and expect human nature to magically deliver improved results.

Politics – Social justice today is actually the Marxist / Marcuse / Gramsci leftist playbook wrapped in appealing religious phraseology and platitudes, a framework for never-ceasing revolution and rebellion though class warfare: economic, racial, gender, or sexual warfare.

Politics – The end result of indoctrination in government schools and mass media that teaches “urban youths” that American society is racist, corrupt, unfair, and unworthy of compliance is the crumbling of civil order.

Politics – After nearly two centuries of experimentation with Marxist ideas in many different kinds of nations, communism has failed to ever produce a brotherhood of man or classless society in which everyone worked in blissful harmony as the ideological dreamers predicted.

Politics – From 1988 until the present, America’s Communist Party urged “voters to support the Democratic Party,” since Progressivism has evolved into a radical socialist party.

Politics – Since the Obamas left the White House, the duo have provided a conflict-ridden Alinsky-style, community organizer training venue to fit every gender, race, and ethnicity.

Politics – It looks like the Democrat party platform for 2018 (and probably 2020) is shaping up to be: Impeach Trump, Open Borders, Guarantee Make-Work Jobs, Raise Taxes (Redistribute Wealth), Confiscate Guns, and Provide Abortion Anytime.

Politics – Republican candidates who embraced Trump’s "drain the swamp" message came out on top in key Senate and House races in West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana and North Carolina.

Media – A slew of polls show a shrinking level of support for special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Media – Stormy Daniels is a non-entity in a non-story that no one cares about, except for the liberal mainstream media who can’t let go hoping something of value magically surfaces.

Media – Trump has a robust 51% approval at Rasmussen, far above Obama at the same time in his presidency, and a new Morning Consult poll predicts a Republican Senate sweep.

Media – Fox News is dominating CNN in prime time so badly that their least-watched shows are outperforming CNN’s best.

America – “There is nothing wrong in America that can’t be fixed with what is right in America” Bill Clinton. 

Culture – Cultural appropriation is not a glitch of American life, it’s a feature of our melting pot assimilation into an American culture, which helps make America great.

Jobs – Finland, a highly progressive Scandinavian country, has piloted “guaranteed income” jobs and found it punishes work and subsidizes sloth, so the experiment has terminated.

Taxes – The federal government collected far more taxes this April than it did a year ago, despite “budget busting Trump tax cuts, proving that tax cuts can pay for themselves.

Environment – Just 12,000 years ago, the Earth warmed quickly by over 10°C, the great ice sheets melted, and sea levels rose dramatically; then it got cold again with temperatures fluctuating over a range of about 5°C during the Egyptian warm period, the Roman warm period, the Dark Ages, the Mini-Ice Age, the Medieval warm period, and the grim times of the Little Ice Age; but none of the warm eras was caused by man's use of coal, gas, or petroleum or by bovine emissions; and none of the cold eras was triggered by mandating more windmills; taxing open fires; or following emission targets set by governments.

Environment - The Earth is not spiraling into a man-made climate catastrophe, but rather it, and humanity, is thriving greatly due to our changing climate and increasing CO2.

Education – Teaching awards have become nothing but a Democrat popularity contest for the most outrageous, and anti-American progressive ideologues in practice.

Feminism – Women have not taken a step forward since the '70s because the oppression of women by the patriarchy has been replaced by the oppression of loud-mouth feminists who cannot stomach any woman who thinks for herself and doesn’t totally conform.

Sexuality – Gender dysphoria is a recognized condition, but that does not mean that taxpayers must subsidize disfigurement to change the appearance of biological reality.

Welfare – The problem with anti-poverty welfare programs is that they are designed to provide temporary assistance to those who have fallen on hard times, but over time the programs transform into a way of life, and very hard to stop once begun.

America – “America will never be destroyed from the outside.  If we falter and lose our freedom, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." Abraham Lincoln. 

Trade – A trade deficit is a sign of a healthy economy because each of the component transactions are mutually beneficial exchange of goods or services in a zero sum game.

Intelligence – CIA Director-designate, Gina Haspel, will be the first career officer in 52 years to rise through the ranks directly to the Director’s chair and deserves quick confirmation.

GWOT – Islam is a comprehensive socio-political, military, religious way of life with its own governing supremacist religious sharia laws that are antithetical to Western cultural norms and America’s Constitution, and the goal of Islam is to convert the world to Islam.

GWOT - Massive inbreeding among Muslims has been going on since their prophet allowed first-cousin marriages more than 50 generations (1,400 years) ago.
