Contradiction in President Trump "Isolationist" Policy

Today on Drudge is an article about father of Navy SEAL killed in a massive screwed-up operation in Yeman on Jan 26 REFUSED to meet with President Trump.

I think Mr Bill Owens has a made a very good point - why did new President Trump allow this operation to go ahead given much of what he said on the Campaign.   This will hopefully allow some retrospection by the Administration.

I send my condolences to this man and his familiy over their son's death - which probablly should not have happened - however NEVER believe that Military Operations can take place with the risk of loss of life.

Proust: Rembrance of Things Past

National Post article by odd Tristan Hopper reported that a Laval University prof and specialist has discovered early and only known film footage of revered French Belle Epoque essayist Marcel Proust from 1901 (he died in 1922).  Proust of course penned "À la recherche du temps perdu" (aka in english "Remembrance of Things Past").

The End of Political Correctness?

"Political correctness isn’t a purely cultural phenomenon, a merely autonomous product of a free market of ideas in an era of enlightenment and progress. It is a multi-billion-dollar industry, funded, promoted, regulated and enforced by government. Without pro-active governments taking on Big Brother roles, political correctness would be an irrelevant factor in the economy and in our lives."
However this is unlikely to happen - especially as OUR Trudeau Government appears curiously concerned about the demise of the private media - accelerated by the State Propaganda Agency. I predict a move to "save" private media with 1) substantial CBC ad revenue and 2) Government "support" under claim of advancing Canadian Culture.

In America a similar kind of "post-truth" reality is dawning and many Red State voters are optimistic that under Trump control of government growth will be undertaken - hopefully beginning with Higher Education.

Finally - in memory of the passing of great Canadian Leonard Cohen. (and a more tuneful rendition)

U.S Election Race Most Bruising and Electric EVER?

Despite being reluctant to encourage hyperbole - I nonetheless suggest this is true.
At least it may be the most amazing U.S Election I have EVER witnessed in my brief lifetime.

The arrival of Donald J Trump into the GOP and sucesful challenge to the traditional party hiearchy.
The unfair battle between Hillary and (crazy commie) Bernie Saunders.
The legitimate questions about Clinton's and Trumps "fittness for office".
The FBI dismissing allegation against Clinton and then re-opening an investigation.
Wikileaks incredible disclosures about the Clinton Campaign actors and the shattering of MSM hegemony.

It has been just incredible to watch and very difficult to withstand.

So with this video of former Democrat stratgist - James Carville - excoriating a MSNBC anchor for what I thought were quite level-headed questions.  Clearly this stand in for Billy Bob Thorton is repeatedly shooting the messenger.

Satchell Paige: How to Keep Young

Now that the Cleveland Indians have beat the Blue Jays and are into the World Series (now 1-1 vs Chicago Cubs) - I was reminded of one of their most revered and ledgendary pitchers Satchell Paige - who joined the team from the Negro League in 1948* when they last won the World  Series (although they were in the Pennant races for 1995 and 1997).

So here were his oft repeated rules on "How to Keep Young".

Avoid fried meats which angry up the blood.
If you stomach disputes you, lie down and pacify it with cool thoughts.
Keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move.
Go very light on the vices, such as carrying on in society. The social ramble ain't restful.
Avoid running at all times.
Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you.

But I like these other ones too.

Age is a case of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it don't matter.

I ain't ever had a job, I just always played baseball.

How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?

My pitching philosophy is simple - keep the ball way from the bat.

If a man can beat you, walk him. 

Ain't no man can avoid being born average, but there ain't no man got to be common.

* Following Jackie Robinson the first to break the Colour Bar of Baseball in 1947.  Robinson had a strong connection to Canada as he was first tried out with the Broklyn Dodgers Farm Team - the Montreal Royals.  Paige himself was older and considered a bigger star player in the Negro Leagues - and supposedly had some hurt feelings about not being first but got over it as I guess he and Jackie were pals.

Kiwi Trevor Louden talks about "Enemies Within"

Trevor Louden is a New Zealander who has been warning Americans about the clear and present threat from a world-wide collection of Communists sympathizers - mostly masqueraging as "Social Democrats" in plain sight.

Mr. Louden has alot of useful material at his website and reminds me of various sympathizers within our own NDP Government in Alberta such as Rod Loyola - Edmonton Ellerslie.

Breibart died too young in 2012

Andrew Breitbart was the beginning of the Alt-Right media movement that grew up with the Tea Party.  Unfortunately the Tea Party found their chosen party - the GOP - was not that happy about having an engadged electrorate and they effetively stymied their efforts in Washington DC.   That was confirmed when the GOP suceeded in standing down Ron Paul in his bid to gain the Republican Nomination during the 2012 Primary - losing in a puzzling fashion to favoured insider Mitt Romney.  Romney lost and Obama was re-elected for a 2nd term.

Donald Trump paid attention to how the GOP machinery cheated Ron Paul of his rightful nomination thru a series of backroom deals and chicanery - and had the resources to counteract and neutralize it whne faced with much the same gameplan in his 2016 bid.

I think Andrew Brietbart - Ben Shapiro notwithstanding - would be onboard with Donald Trump.

There has been much speculation on the cause of Andrew Brietbart's death. 

It is also odd that Micheal Cormier, the Corner of Andrew Brietbart - also died under mysterious circumstances only a few days later on April 20, 2012. Then there was the death of novelist Tom Clancy Oct 1, 2013 under odd circumstances linked to Brietbart as it was alledged he was writing a book using information Brietbart had discovered about President Obama.

HRC is disintegrating before our eyes.

As if it can't get any better, Drudge Report put up a few links to articles that bring attention to Hiliary's bizarre behaviours over past few weeks and proposes that she may not be "physically fit for office" - not to mention before considering anything else of substance like - policy, record and ethics.

But really Obama introduced the topic first by saying Trump was "unfit for Office" only a few days before.  It is another example of issues the Democrats/HRC floats and then has to deal with the fall-out as they loose heavily when Trump turns the tables on them and responds.

I calculated that HRC might actually die on Friday March 10, 2017 soon after being installed if she won in November which would make her selection of  Virginia Gov Time Kaine as VP Running mate all the more important.

Of course - her "lead" in the polls has been promoted by her supporters.

Then the Clinton Body Count continues to roll-on without any MSM interest.  Specifically 5 mysterious deaths of individuals with ties to the Clinton's over the last 6 weeks including:

Victor Thorn - Aug 1, 2016
Shawan Lucas - Aug 2, 2016
Joe Montano - July 25, 2016
Seth Rich - July 10, 2016
John Ashe - June 27, 2016

All of this has happened since - Bernie Saunders was dropped in the Democratic Primaries, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was replaced as DNC Chair in Philiadephia PA after Wikileaks disclosed hacked emails from Democratic National Committee, Hillary cleared by FBI so she will not be prosecuted for Email Scandal and also that the Iranian Government disclosed that a Nuclear Scientist previously living in the US was executed for espinage activities believed to be due to disclosures from Hilary's hacked email server.

Shahram Amiri - Aug 1

Finally I enjoyed this Milo Yianopolis interview with Roger Stone where they explored the probability of Electroral Fraud and Roger Stone noted that Hilary's win came from precincts where there were unauditable "machine voting" as opposed to old-style paper trail methods used.

Hilary for Prison

The FBI has determined that they can not charge Hilary Rodham Clinton for her "careless" treatment of classified documents.  Here was the breakdown by Megan Kelly with follow up commentary by Fox Analysts Britt Hume, Former FBI Assistant Director and GOP Speaker Paul Ryan.

I am reminded that Britt Humes son Sandy died under odd circumstances while supposdedly covering an important story about the Clintons in 1998.

Here is Paul Joseph Watson's excellent take on the decision - including cases with exactly the same offense:

Also, recent analysis questions the accuracy and disclosures of the Clinton Foundation over a number of years.

And finally - did you know that Chelsea Clinton is now married to the son of another questionable criminal Democrat.

Lessons from 2016 Australian Election

Voters went to polls in Australian Federal election on Sat July 2, 2016 - and I think there are some useful observations for Canadians given the changes being rammed-down our throats by Justin Trudeau.

1)  A Federal "snap" election has been anticipated since September 2015 when Liberal Malcolm Turnbull staged a coup to bring down his leader and Coalition Prime Minister Tony Abbott 2 years into his term.  This July 2, 2016 elction call was made for both Upper (Senate) and Lower (Representatives) Houses and began May 8.

2)  Today (July 5) the complete results are still NOT known due to the complexities of the PR System (Proportional Representation) used in both Australia Houses for decades.   The seat distribution between parties is so close it will be splinter parties that have sprung up like wildfires - to do deals and determine the winner.

3) There have been 55 parties established for this electon - including the split Liberal into "Liberal National" that represent mostly Rural Australia.  And a new UPSHOT "One Nation" party to stop mass Immigration has split the vote and put a severe crimp in the Liberals traditional voter base.

4) Former PM Tony Abbott has been RE-ELECTED in his Sydney Riding of Warringah.  I note that swing riding of Herbert that includes Townsville QLD is still in doubt but looks to go Labour.  Also Wide Bay encompassing rural areas outside Brisbane from Gympie to Bundaberg looks solidily Liberal going to Lew O'Brien.
