Thank You Colonel

To be truthful we don't have such problems over here in Europe or rather our politicians don't. No such problems at all, really. It's quite simple. Just close your eyes to them and they don't exist. An elegant and effective solution we've been refining for decades.

"The assassination is taking such a long time." It's a vicious thing for a journalist to write, even as a throwaway remark. That hostility to Trump among the politicians and bien pensants in Europe is due to the fact that he's splashing cold water in their faces and making them open their eyes. I suppose much the same is happening over your way. Except that for the American political classes, being closer, the cold water seems to be coming by the bucketful.

Colonel Lang -

I respected many Viets, and despised some others.

My first loyalty is to Americans, all of us.

There's an amazing amount of conspiracy theories about Trump and Bannon being expounded by the partisans. The same group who were fine as Obama and Hillary grew the anarchy by supporting Al Qaeda.

In their opinion the folks that won an election despite the best efforts of the MSM and their ilk are being machiavellian as they implement what they campaigned on.

Didn't see much of the hilarious manchurian Putin apologist line recently. It'll be back soon I presume. In any case it is great entertainment for the conspiracy buffs.

Israel isn't the US...We're currently not an Apartheid State, so that's a poor comparison.

Yes, I am describing a backlash against the multi/culti obsession that some people have. Some cultures are inferior. If you did not inherently accept this, you would probably be living in some other culture enjoying all that exciting diversity.

But am also describing a backlash against people that do not accept some cultures as inferior and who think that western civ is a crock or, at best, equal to say, what we see in Afghanistan or sub-Saharan Africa.

I'm an American and wanted to live in the most diverse American community I could so over 30 years ago I moved to the Lower East Side of NYC. I live a little further north of that now, and the neighborhood's still pretty diverse. I'm sorry Eric, but what you are describing sounds a lot to me like white supremacism.

Here's what diversity looks like in Flushing Queens. It's safe and one of the most exciting neighborhoods in the city now.

Origin,

Looks like the folks across the pond didn't get the message:

That's a 384 vote margin for Brexit. .

Colonel,

Who could be the leaker(s)?

Instead, President Trump blasted Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull over a refu­gee agreement and boasted about the magnitude of his electoral college win, according to senior U.S. officials briefed on the Saturday exchange. Then, 25 minutes into what was expected to be an hour-long call, Trump abruptly ended it.

At one point, Trump informed Turnbull that he had spoken with four other world leaders that day — including Russian President Vladi­mir Putin — and that “this was the worst call by far.”

Australia, Mexico , who is next ?

I haven't attended one for a long time. Do you go to the NSC members meetings or the PC regularly? pl

IMO this was probably a controlled "leak" to show how bad assed they are. pl

Origin,

" immense amount of damage to domestic tranquility."

That was Black Lives Matter shouting down Bernie Sanders and Governor O'Malley. It is the left wing anarchists in Berkeley last night.

Bloomberg News profiled Steve Bannon more than a year ago. Back in 2015 it was clear he opposed Clinton and Bush, but still mysterious as to which candidate he might support. Despite the somewhat hyperbolic headline, the piece is detailed and substantive.

"Bannon’s life is a succession of Gatsbyish reinventions that made him rich and landed him squarely in the middle of the 2016 presidential race: He’s been a naval officer, investment banker, minor Hollywood player, and political impresario...

"[quoting Bannon's self-myth] “I come from a blue-collar, Irish Catholic, pro-Kennedy, pro-union family of Democrats,” says Bannon, by way of explaining his politics. “I wasn’t political until I got into the service and saw how badly Jimmy Carter f---ed things up. I became a huge Reagan admirer. Still am. But what turned me against the whole establishment was coming back from running companies in Asia in 2008 and seeing that Bush had f---ed up as badly as Carter. The whole country was a disaster.”

(Bonus: the article offers, in passing, a brief description of the "dark internet," into which I have probably blundered, when following links, but did not understand. With the claim that it was a significant source for "Clinton Cash.")

Even if the bill goes nowhere, it may allow Tulsi to sharpen her skills. She's expecting to be around for a long time, I think.

Fred

Edward,

Flushing is a city of 80,000 that is 70% one ethnicity. But hey, don't call it New York's Chinatown because it is diverse! Congratulations on being a first wave gentrifier of the Lower East Side of NYC. That's a fine piece of one of the Republics premier cities but it's not representative of much of the rest of the Republic. What you have described is urban supremacism.

Fred

Eric,

There were plenty of native enemies of the Aztecs who sided with Cortez. The native elite of all the various tribes also intermarried with the Spanish conquistadors. )The Spanish had very few women come to the new world during the initial period of conquest and colonization.) Those facts don't fit the victimhood narrative though. Neither does mentioning already existing systems of slavery nor human sacrifice.

Fred

Nancy,

Many of the people who voted for him have disliked where the country has been heading for decades.
