Will We Again be Trapped in a Middle East Triangle of Hate

President Trump sent 59 Cruise Missiles into Syria. Unlike Bill Clinton’s feeble attempt at a Cruise Missile strike which hit an empty aspirin factory in Khartoum Sudan, the Trump strike hit the mark.

The missile attack was retaliation for a chemical attack launched by Assad on the Syrian people. As the Assad air strike originated from Shayrat Air Base in Assad controlled Homs Province, this was the logical target for the Trump Cruise Missile attack.

This naturally led to a worldwide mental melt down and conjectures that this is the first official volley of World War III. And who knows – it may be. But I wouldn’t be too quick to jump to that conclusion.

There are some real bad actors in this conflict and I’m not sure which is worse – Bashar al-Assad or Vladimir Putin. On the surface Assad would seem to be the personification of evil, and he indeed is, but we know he won’t lift a finger without first checking with the Godfather, Putin. Personally, I think this was Putin’s doing.

For the last eight years, old Vlad has basically had the run of the globe, to go anywhere and do anything he wishes without fear of reprisal from Commander Lead-from-Behind, Obama. read more

My WND Weekly Exclusive

At least Putin knows how to fight wars

On Friday, the Washington Post dutifully reported that our slow-witted secretary of state, John Kerry, who ironically thinks he is the smartest guy in any room, is calling “for the Syrian and Russian governments to face a war-crimes investigation over attacks on civilians in Syria.” They did not add the editorial comments – that was me.

While meeting with French Foreign Minister Blacque Jacque Shellacque, Kerry said that Russia and Syria had a “targeted strategy to terrorize civilians and kill anybody who is in the way of their military objectives.” The French foreign minister’s name isn’t really the aforementioned, but seeing as how I don’t really care what it is, I simply inserted a name for which those who know and love Bugs Bunny cartoons would be familiar. read more

PUTIN’S SECRET WEAPON: REFUGEE MIGRATION

The backlash from citizens in Europe over the influx of refugees is already overwhelming. Anti-migrant nationalism is growing rapidly – and whether it is or is not proper, it is completely understandable, considering the circumstances. The residents of several European countries feel abandoned by their leaders, as the welfare of the migrants appears to trump their own. And in most cases this is 100 percent accurate.

The leftist leaders of several EU nations just couldn’t help themselves. Their political correctness demanded they demonstrate to the world how much bigger their hearts were than their brains. And as we know, this demonstration manifested itself in allowing hundreds of thousands of unvetted refugees to pour into Europe. read more

Obama and Putin: A Tale of Two Presidents

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin have a couple things in common. Both are domestic authoritarians and both believe themselves to be dictators of their respective countries. Beyond that, they are pretty much polar opposites.

Putin, the ex-KGB agent fancies himself a tough guy, a man’s man, spending a great amount of time shirtless and probably in front of a mirror. And being an ex-agent, he is more than likely a tough guy. Obama, as has been demonstrated on many occasions, is a wimp who merely plays at being tough, but only to the extent he can remain unchallenged, which is the mark of a bully.

Domestically Obama appears tough because he has force of the federal government to do his bidding and spineless cowards as his only opposition – those cowards being the republicans. He is free to push them around the schoolyard. But internationally – that’s a different story. At the first sign of trouble he folds. He’s not equipped for the international stage, where his army of government lawyers can’t merely pressure and threaten his enemies into capitulation. Other world leaders have no fear of that, which is why he chooses to lead from behind.

Take for example the latest juxtaposition between he and Putin with their handling of ISIS and Syria in general. Putin, to be sure, is a dirtbag despot, but he does understand war and the use of his military. We certainly should not agree with his ambitions and alliances, but he appears to be getting the job done, as he sees it. He evidently has full comprehension that the job of his military – any military, is to kill people and break things. And he has set out to do just that. read more

A Soviet Arab Alliance – It’s Déjà vu All Over Again

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Vladimir Putin has decided to take the role of leading man in the Middle East. With each passing week Vlad continues to displace Barack “The Shrinking Violet” Obama as the Big Man on Campus amongst Arab nations. And so far, it’s been easy. All he has to do is show up and say, “Hey, Barack won’t take the lead – I’ll do it,” and the nations of the Middle East begin to fall in line.

Arab nations are scared and discouraged. It appears they are willing to accept help from anyone who can aid them against the growing threat of ISIS and other radicals in the region. They must be looking at our weak and feckless Commander in Chief and his “Lead from Behind” strategy with disdain.

How does one lead from behind anyway? Is that not an oxymoron – like honest democrat?

Putin already had Iran and Syria locked up. They’ve been allies of Russia since the Soviet days. Yet this time around Putin’s new pro-Soviet pact may end up with a lot more members than it had during the Cold War era. Thanks to pitiful American leadership, he may lock up so many Middle Eastern nations that he may not only end up as the new Supreme Soviet, but also the Caliph.

After World War II, the United States and the Soviet Union emerged as the obvious superpowers. Those were the good old days – when the United States was both respected and feared as an actual superpower. read more

Has Trump Done Some Homework Since The Hewitt Interview?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Remember the radio interview Donald Trump did with Hugh Hewitt?

Hewitt asked: “I’m looking for the next commander-in-chief, to know who Hassan Nasrallah is, and Zawahiri, and al-Julani, and al-Baghdadi. Do you know the players without a scorecard, yet, Donald Trump?”

“No. You know, I’ll tell you honestly, I think by the time we get to office, they’ll all be changed. They’ll be all gone,” Trump said. I thought at the time – hey – at least he’s honest. A slimy politician would have tried to bull crap his way through. It would not have worked on Hewitt.

So when, yesterday morning, I heard one of the Fox and Friends crew ask him what he would do about Russia, Syria and Assad, I didn’t hear what I expected, which was, “I make deals – great deals, and I’ll make a great deal with Putin – or something to that effect.

What he said was both intelligent and the truth, and void of his usual bombast. It appears maybe he did a little homework since the Hewitt interview.

The question was regarded Russia’s bombing in Syria and that Putin was supposed to be bombing ISIS, but it appears they are bombing the rebels – Assad’s enemies – the “moderates” the U.S. is supporting.

He said the U.S. has “no idea” when it comes to the identities of the various rebel groups in Syria. Trump said: “We don’t know who these rebels are. He said one of the generals he spoke to admitted “they don’t even know who they are we’re fighting for.” read more

Vladimir Potter May Bail Out Greece

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Is it life which imitates art or art that imitates life? I usually don’t much care. I’m not much of an art aficionado, but in the case of Greece and the wonderful20bailey20park-thumbEuropean Union, I think it’s life imitating art.

Greece is officially out of money. Actually they’ve been broke for quite some time, but now it’s crunch time. They need money to make a rather large payment (450 million Euros) to the IMF. They don’t have it.

So let’s call the country of Greece, the low rent district of Europe (Bedford Falls), or Bailey Park. For those unaware, I’m making reference to Frank Capra’s classic movie “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

The European Union, or, the Old Building and Loan, has helped the residents of Greece, Bailey Park, all it can, and will no longer lend it any more without Greece instituting austerity measures. Thus far they have refused.

Well, desperate times lead to desperate measures. The duly elected representative of Bailey Park, the Prime Minister of Greece, Alexis Tsipras has made attempts to acquire more funding from the EU, the old Building and Loan, but to no avail.

Enter Mr. Potter. We might better know him as Russia’s President Vladimir Putin. read more

Doomsday for Conservatives

By: the Common Constitutionalist

If it’s not End Times for the world, it certainly may be for conservative America.

First – the world. Just take a look around.

Look at what the former KGB operative and current supreme leader of mother Russia is doing. You may recall last week that Vladimir “Pooty-Poot” Putin ordered two Russian Bear bombers to buzz Great Britain. RAF Typhoon fighters had to be scrambled to chase them off. Awarship few days earlier, a Russian warship had to be escorted by the U.K. military through the English Channel. I’m sure it just made a wrong turn at Iceland. At the same time the British government is discussing cuts in their defense spending. They might want to rethink that strategy.

Putin is on the march and actively testing the west’s ability and fortitude to repel him should he decide to begin to take more territory. This Russian situation is a lot more serious than is being advertised. One stupid mistake from some overzealous official on either side – and the missiles start flying.

Then there are the many faces of terror that threaten the entire west. Personally, I think most, if not all of Europe is doomed, owing not only to their spineless “go along to get along” attitude toward Muslims in general, but also their admittance of so many Muslims into their countries. I am certainly not the only one who feels this way. read more

The Russian Bear and The Care Bear

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

So Obama calls himself “the Bear”. What a joke. Where did he get that? Who gave him that name? No doubt he did, but why? Does he fancy himself some kind of wild animal? Maybe a caged predator, let out to hunt when Mama Bear allows it?

I guess his cage is the White House that he’s constantly trying to escape. I suppose I can sympathize with him a bit about being trapped at the White House.

You know, the place where great past presidents actually had to make Earth changing decisions. Serious, thoughtful presidents who put God and country ahead of themselves. I can see how the Agitator-In-Chief would be constantly haunted by their memory and wish to escape.

So the Care Bear, or maybe the Gummy Bear is loose – out fist pumping the regular folk at some fly-over eating establishment, yukking it up – having a grand ole time. Yes, the regular folk, who have been properly vetted and credentialed as zombified sycophants, in order to get within a mile of His Highness.

Meanwhile, as the Care Bear pretends all is well, the Real Bear – the Russian Bear is in fact loose. Vladimir Putin, the Russian grizzly, who would kill his own young to further his aim, has his hands in virtually every evil being perpetrated, at least in his own hemisphere, if not ours.
