Yes, Virginia, There Is A Deep State And It’s Feeding The Anti-POTUS Mob

by
The prepared statement of the latest UkraineGate whistle-blower is well worth the read. It tells you all you need to know about why the Deep State apparatchiks are coming out of the woodwork in a massive assault on America's duly elected president. They are deathly afraid Trump will begin to dismantle a far-flung Empire which has wreaked havoc around the world, bled America's fiscal accounts dry, and fostered unspeakable prosperity among the beltway's legions of empiresupporting agencies, contractors, think tanks, foreign lobbies, NGO's and Kstreet racketeers. Whether out of common sense, naiveté or just contrariness, the Donald has dared to question and disrupt the Empire's core policy on the Ukraine/Russia file. And that's apparently exactly why the whistleblower de jour, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, wrote his now ballyhooed memos. He feared that Trump's appropriate desire to get to the bottom of the welldocumented Ukrainian involvement in the Obama Administration's illegal spying on his 2016 presidential campaign would undermine the bipartisan consensus on ...

Immigration Controls Lead Us into Temptation

by
The Lord’s Prayer exhorts, “Lead us not into temptation.” Yet, that is precisely what certain government programs do — programs that are ardently supported by many American Christians. A recent incident in Texas involving a death, an arm amputation, and broken limbs, ankles, and backs provides a good example of this phenomenon. A group of Texas teenagers were transporting illegal immigrants from Eagle Pass, which is on the Texas-Mexico border, to San Antonio. They were spotted by a sheriff’s deputy. The teenagers floored the trucks they were driving, which caused one of the vehicles to skid and turn over. A Mexican man was killed and other people suffered multiple injuries. Why were the teenagers engaged in this criminal conduct? Money! The fierce federal crackdown on illegal immigration has caused prices for transporting illegal immigrants to soar. That’s what normally happens when a peaceful activity ...

Were the Deaths of Three Children Worth It?

by
One of the interesting aspects surrounding the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was the simultaneous deaths of three of his children who were near him when he exploded his suicide vest rather than be taken captive by U.S. forces. The question naturally arises: Were the deaths of those three children worth it? U.S. interventionists would undoubtedly respond by saying that U.S. forces didn’t kill the three children. Baghdadi did. Therefore, they would say, the U.S. government isn’t responsible for the deaths of those three children. But the fact remains that if U.S. forces had not conducted the raid to get Baghdadi, those three children would still be alive. The price for getting Baghdadi included the deaths of those three children. Was it worth it? Interventionists would undoubtedly say that of course the deaths of those children were worth it. After all, Baghdadi was a vicious and brutal terrorist who was head of an organization that wanted ...

Empire and Interventionism vs. Republic and Noninterventionism

by
The chaos arising from U.S. interventionism in Syria provides an excellent opportunity to explore the interventionist mind. Consider the terminology being employed by interventionists: President Trump’s actions in Syria have left a “power vacuum,” one that Russia and Iran are now filling. The United States will no longer have “influence” in the region. “Allies” will no longer be able to ...
