Barack Obama spent eight years enabling Iran through a nuclear deal which guarantees them a nuclear device within 10-15 years, and by showering them with money, several million in hard cash — money laundering, anyone? For this America has earned the well-deserved contempt of not just Iran, but Israel and the Sunni states.
We tell each other stories in order to make sense of what appears to be a chaotic universe. For thousands of years we huddled around fires and told tales. In this way, families became tribes, tribes became states, and states grew into nations bound together by a common narrative.
In postmodern America, the radical left has dominated the national narrative. From same sex marriage to the pseudo science of climate change, the radical fringe has become the dominant voice of the elite classes who control our universities and media. Thus, Barack Obama’s radical ideology was labeled mainstream and common sense. An Orwellian destruction of language and meaning.
Yesterday, Barack Obama commuted Bradley Manning’s 35 year sentence for disclosing the largest cache of classified military secrets in American history. So serious and far reaching was Manning’s treason that prosecutors were contemplating the death penalty. But Manning pleaded down and death was no longer an option.
Most pundits are baffled by Obama’s commutation of Manning’s sentence.
I think it’s fairly obvious.
The American left continues to amplify their childish hysteria over Donald Trump’s election. They have finally settled on a reason the election was illegitimate: The Russians swayed the election.
If the Russians rigged the election in Trump’s favor then we have to assume they did a rather shabby job. I mean, Hillary did win the popular vote. Did the Russians rig that outcome? More to the point, did the Russians convince Hillary to set up her own server? Did the Russians make Hillary delete some 30, 000 emails? Did the Russians counsel Hillary to lie about Benghazi? Did the Russians sway the Senate and Congressional elections, the Governorships?—all a Republican majority.
The truth is Obama’s disastrous policies and Hillary’s dishonesty swayed the elections to the Republican column.
The left is outraged about Putin. But when a hot mike caught Obama assuring the Russians that after the election he (Obama) would be more flexible. That was just fine.
The left in America will never accept President-elect Donald J. Trump. The truth is they would not accept anyone who is not a radical leftist.
That’s because the left is, at the core, intolerant, bigoted — and unbelievably ignorant. I don’t know how many conversations I’ve had with some of my Hollywood friends about basic Conservative ideology. When pressed, it becomes clear that they have no idea what we believe. They usually fall back on the moral opposition to ”reproductive rights” code for killing children in the womb, that we want poor people to become even poorer by taking away government programs, and of course the sure-fire blood libel; Republicans are racist.
