We’ll Always Have Paris

Would you like to know how to perform a 10 second I.Q. test? It’s easy……..find the individual whose I.Q. you would like to ascertain, and then ask the following question: “Do you believe in man-made global warming…oops, I mean climate change, and if so, do you support a global system of world politicians to implement a solution?”. If the answer is in the affirmative, congratulations!……..you have successfully identified a knuckle-dragging idiot, racist, and easily led and manipulated fool! Sadly though, the individual in question may be a friend, co-worker, or family member. Oh well……equality of critical thinking and intelligence isn’t a “thing”, nor is it guaranteed by our Constitution. I know it’s hard to come to the realization that there are people in your life that need to be scraped off, like barnacles on the bottom of a boat, but…….in truth, there are those people………and odds are if they believe in “man-made climate change”, they need to go.

First of all, without debating the “settled science” of The Weather…..oops, there I go again……I mean, Climate Change, Barack Hussein Obama entered this awful agreement without the consent of Congress and the Citizens of the United States. By its very formation, the Paris Accord is an international treaty that binds us to the whims of foreign diplomats, and as such requires passage and approval by Congress. This country fought a war over two hundred years ago in order to stop the governance of our lives by Aristocrats thousands of miles away……..how odd it is that the most ignorant among us, the Social Justice Warriors, are eager to become a serf-state once again in service to their God of Global Government.

Most people I see commenting on our withdrawal from the Paris Accord are completely ignorant of what it entails, and are simply virtue-signaling……..just like they do with everything else. So……here are a couple of horrible things that the Accord would have accomplished:  A Heritage Foundation study found that the Paris agreement would have increased the costs for electricity for an American family of four by at least 13 percent – and up to 20 percent – annually. So……does that sound like Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo (Ruffalo actually said “the death of entire nations” will be a consequence of pulling out of the Paris Accord- what an A-hole) will pay the price for their “War on Weather”? Or does it sound like real people with real families will carry the burden…..even though DiCaprio and Ruffalo generate more pollution with every film production, promotion tour, and then subsequent luxury vacation than 1000 normal people do for their entire lives? In the same study, it was found that : The effect of the agreement would be to reduce U.S. GDP by over $2.5 trillion (our GDP is about 3.5 trillion- so do the math)  and eliminate at least 400,000 jobs by 2035. This is all in addition to growing rates of welfare and entitlement spending……..not to mention the ever-increasing cost of Social Security…….so how will we manage to pay for everybody’s Gubm’t Cheese? That would require thinking beyond the desire to make yourself feel good, not to mention look awesomely thoughtless on Fakebook. Throw in Obama’s commitment to have the United States spend over a trillion dollars by 2025 – in bribes to undeveloped countries in exchange for NOT developing their own energy – and you have a disaster.

You may be wondering why I included “racist” in my analysis of supporters of the Paris Accord……..so I’ll explain. As I mentioned before, developed nations would pay undeveloped nations incentive cash to not produce and consume energy in levels higher than they are now. Guess what? Most of the undeveloped world is not white……and with the passage of the Accord, pampered Progressives are telling these folks that, “hey…….I know you want a house that’s not a shack, and air-conditioning, running water, waste management, an automobile, access to technology, and pretty much all the stuff that I take for granted……but I say you need to just keep living your quaint little stone-age life……and watch your children die before you do at 40…….because my ignorant virtue-signaling is worth more than your value as a human being”.

I do believe in climate change……..want to know why? Because the climate of the Earth has been changing since the dawn of time, and much more drastically than it has during the reign of modern mankind. I would urge you to actually do some research into things like “The Ice Age”, or for some real troubling data, the period known as the “Younger-Dryas”……..both are pretty recent in the history of the Earth, and both blow the Progressive political agenda known as “man-made climate change” into little bits.  Al Gore wrongly told us that by 2015 we would all be drowning in melted ice-caps and polar bear corpses……….and literally every other prediction ever made by the weather alarmists has proven to be just as silly and impotent. If you are truly horrified by CO2 emissions and the human impact on the environment…..let me suggest the only solution that will lessen your “carbon footprint”………..Adult Self-Abortion. We won’t miss you, and neither will Mother Earth.

“The planet has been through a lot worse than us. Been through earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, continental drift, solar flares, sun spots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles … hundreds of thousands of years of bombardment by comets and asteroids and meteors, worldwide floods, tidal waves, worldwide fires, erosion, cosmic rays, recurring ice ages … And we think some plastic bags and some aluminum cans are going to make a difference? The planet isn’t going anywhere. WE are! And we won’t leave much of a trace, either. Maybe a little Styrofoam … The planet’ll be here and we’ll be long gone. Just another failed mutation. Just another closed-end biological mistake. An evolutionary cul-de-sac. The planet’ll shake us off like a bad case of fleas……”  – George Carlin

War Is The Answer

In the past days I have been seriously thinking about which direction to go in the pursuit of my next column. The problem is, there are so many horrible things going on at once that it is difficult to pick just one or two to address. Should I talk to you about the sham that is the selection process for our next president? How about the collusion of both parties to continue abusing and soiling our Senate and so-called House of Representatives?  Or maybe about the huge racial and cultural divide currently splitting the legal population? Oh, or better yet, the absolute abject failure of our co-opted “Press” in giving any unbiased, no-agenda, reporting on any of the issues I just mentioned, or anything else for that matter?

Then it came to me. War is the answer. If you logically go through every single major issue facing the United States…….and what the hell let’s throw in the rest of the globe…..the answer to any question is war. Not just in the middle east, not just on your t.v., but on scale on par with nothing we have seen before. Don’t get me wrong, this is the absolute last thing I would want to happen, and it would be awful in more ways than I can imagine. The big problem is that as soon as you look outside these porous borders of ours, every issue and argument seems to be leading to an unfortunate yet inevitable conclusion. Let’s pick a few points and follow the bouncing betty.

Over the past 7 years the United States has either ignored or abandoned every commitment made to our strategic allies all over the world. Whether I agree with what those commitments were and if they were wise decisions matters not, as it sets a very dangerous example. We have failed to honor our commitments to defend free satellite states of the Old Soviet Empire, as Putin gobbles up former chunks of the once dead USSR. We have reduced our military in number and technical development. What once was a formidable fighting force is now a social experiment for transgendered, homosexual, and female soldiers. Our Navy has been reduced by half, with more cuts in the pipeline. In fact, our Prez now demands any increase in military spending be matched with more welfare and entitlement dollars. We have drawn “red lines” all over the middle east, each nothing more than an empty political tool for domestic gain with no thought to the lives that teeter on such proclamations. In my opinion, the U.S. has no business interfering in other nations affairs……but when the Chief Executive makes a threat, it should not be as empty as the suit he wears.

We have built ISIS. Do you hear that leftist weirdos? To those that claimed we created Al Qaeda during the Bush years and yakked on and on about Haliburton, etc., etc.. Well here’s your new crusade ready made for you. By leaving Iraq ( and we can discuss whether we should have ever been there or not later ) with an announced timeline and regardless of the state of affairs, we opened the door to islamists to run wild. In fact, once again in my opinion, we systematically used the “arab spring” to topple leaders like Mubarak in Egypt and Qadhafi in Libya, and have been trying to do the same to Syria’s Assad. Have you asked yourself why? After seeing the obvious mistake of removing Saddam as a barrier to Iran and a hammer to the islamists, why would we continue to follow the same disastrous course all over the middle east? It’s pretty clear that the 7th century headchoppers populating that part of the world were scared to death of the brutal dictators that held an iron grip on them. Well guess what? We traded a handful of distasteful, power mad, dictators for thousands of them that cannot be reasoned with or diplomatically handled.

We have slapped our ally Israel in the face at every turn. Calm down, Jew-haters, I know there is a bunch of people who think that the “Eveeel Jooooooose” are responsible for all the world’s ills, but if you’re one of these folks you need to read a book or two and realize what kind of company you’re in ( and it ain’t good ). Israel is the only democratic nation in the region, and our on-paper ally, yet we have acted as much as their enemy as anyone else……..denying fly over access to their jets for a preemptive Iran strike, denying ammunition and arms, and refusing to honor our promises of joint defense. And speaking of Iran……hey America! do you realize who our new best buddy is? It’s Iran! You know……the folks who have been killing and maiming American soldiers all over the world for decades! The folks who chant “death to America” and mean it…….you know, the freakin’ bad guys! Now we are giving them a nuke!  Not only that but in the super-secret agreement our Caesar made for us behind closed doors, we actually have an obligation to defend their so-called “peaceful” nuclear enrichment sites. Does that sound like a path to peace to you?

As a result of all of this U.S. foreign policy failure, Europe is being flooded with muslim “refugees”. As an example, there is a small town in Germany with a population of 120 that is bracing for an influx of over 700 non-german speaking “refugees” that just so happen to be 70+ percent male.** The U.K., France, Germany, and Italy are all on the receiving end of huge masses of peaceful Islamists who can’t speak the language, are dependent on social welfare/services, and are brimming with the desire to implement Sharia law on the communities they are infesting. Shoot, Obama is shipping thousands of them here for good measure, which sounds like a great idea, doesn’t it? Now in addition to hordes of illiterates from south of the border, we can throw in some terrorists too!

America is in huge debt, or as Trump would say…Yuge Debt. Our 8 trillion dollar debt at the start of our Dear Leader’s tenure has been more than doubled to over 18 trillion *.  We can never repay this debt, even as with unfunded liabilities every single person in America currently owes over a quarter of a million dollars…..even your little kids and babies. Are you good for that? See why the democrats’ promises of free college and free this or that are absolutely ridiculous at best and terrifyingly evil at worst? At the same time our education system is a failure, churning out generations of idiots who think “climate change” is the most serious problem we face. I mean WTF is with that, and how are so many people so damned stupid? To think of all the huge problems we need to confront….. and yet a giant percentage of the population wants to cut our own throats in global competition so we can pee into the wind?   The weather? For real? You people think we can change the mechanics of the very universe? Wow.

Add to all of this the weight of the  global population. China is packed with a billion plus people who are mostly male and mostly deprived of any opportunity to do anything with their lives. India is brimming with young, aimless men also.  Do you think that’s an odd thing for me to mention? It’s not. Want to know why? Because countries with population crisis like that need something to do with all of those bodies, not to mention finding the resources to feed them. Historically the answer is war. When you combine poor economies with poor leadership, bad things happen. Kind of like putting American soldiers on the battlefield right next to Russian soldiers. Can someone tell me why our president is dead set on arming and funding the Islamic state, using our troops to defend them, and doing this in direct opposition to Russia – who is engaged in active combat with them? How long before an incident that leads to disaster happens?

And there you have it. All of the things I have mentioned lead to a very troubling conclusion. How does the U.S. rise out of deepening recession? How does China manage it’s population and failing economy? How does Iran use it’s newfound and America-given hegemony in the Middle East? How does Europe contain the Islamic crisis it has helped create and is so far powerless to stop? It seems that no matter what the question is, sadly and predictably,  a World War is The Answer.  We won the last one, but I fear that a nation of climate changin’, gender reassignin’, celebrity worshippin’, Bernie Sanders lovin’, Benghazi lyin’, spray tannin’, Ferguson burnin’, and selfie takin’ whiners is ill equipped to win, or even survive, the next one.

The Republicans Still Just Don’t Get It

A quick thought here…..(as I am busy scripting the next EmpireofTruth video), The republicans, after eight years of Dubya Bush and six with Obozo, still just don’t get it. Do you know why Mitt Romney lost the last presidential election? I do, and it’s in the numbers.  Millions of ordinary folks stayed home and by default gave the Dems and Obama yet another victory. Why? Because Mitt was, and is, just plain boring. Every current candidate, with the exception of Cruz, is attacking Trump because of his comments on Illegal Immigration. What a bunch of Idiots. I mean historically, technically, and factually they are complete boobs.

Let me state this for everyone…..even those who think with their “feelings”, which is every single supposed progressive, NO NATION CAN SURVIVE MASSIVE UNFETTERED ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. I’ve written this before, but in this “nation of cowards” ( Quoting Eric Holder ), we are unwilling to look at a steaming pile of horse shat and call it what it is. You cannot import illiterate, unskilled peoples that do not speak the national language, do not respect the national law, and refuse to assimilate, into what’s left of our culture and expect positive results. As long as we have a welfare state, we cannot have open borders.

But don’t tell that to Rick Perry. He’s what is called ” all hat and no cattle” in Texas. I mean, what a moron. The governor of a border state that is racked with crime and expense at the hands of criminal aliens is attacking an extremely successful businessman, with interests all over the world, over truthful, if un-artful, statements about illegal immigration.. Perry is trashing Trump while praising the efforts of the “tejanos” at the Alamo…..even though he left out the huge fact that it was an army of Mexicans from Mexico that were the attackers.

Let me put it to you this way. If you were a bank robber, or rapist, or murderer, and you see an article in the paper saying, “hey……here in La Ciudad Mexico we have a Sanctuary City. If you come to Mexico illegally, have a felony criminal history, and cannot speak Spanish, we will welcome you! You will have access to medical care, EBT cards, and employment. All you do is show up, we’ll do the rest, Gringo!”.  Who do you think from the United States would flock to this paradise? Well that’s what every “sanctuary city” in the U.S. is doing. Sounds pretty stupid, doesn’t it? You know why? Because it is, that’s why.

Listen, I know people like to make an argument based on feeling good and patting themselves on the back. Something similar to, ” Hey….everybody wants the same thing for their family and to have a good life and what about the children….”.  It’s usually these same intellectual giants that don’t ever actually rub shoulders with illegals, or if they do it’s to condescendingly point out where their shrubs need pruning and yard needs edging.

Frankly, if you are one of these bleeding heart/factually vacant/non-critical thinking/political partisan hacks that just is absolutely set on self destruction, by all means, shut your mouth and open your wallet.

See, there’s nothing preventing you and all the extended-pinkie-finger chardonnay drinkers you hang out with from taking your money and throwing it at every illegal you see. That’s what non-government types do, you know. But my guess is that all those who so strenuously advocate open borders will continue to insist that everyone else pony up the funds through taxation and the welfare state. These same people will claim that we are “a nation of immigrants”, when those that came before did so legally and without the benefit of social welfare.

The crux of the issue is this: If you think that we the enlightened people, who have the memory-span of goldfish, no civics or knowledge of history, and no sense of the greatness and ingenuity of those that came before us, can solve the massive problems we now face with our current philosophy……….oh my.

Because there’s a reason the Chinese built a wall  several centuries ago. There’s a reason Rome fell. There’s a reason that every major civilization built borders around themselves. Because you can’t lock your doors but then leave your windows wide open.  It’s time we open our eyes and close our border, and especially time to staunch the massive bleeding from a wound that’s self inflicted. I invite you, if you disagree, to put your money where your mouth is.  Buy houses, move illegals in, pay for their healthcare and education, feed and clothe them, learn Spanish to communicate with them, and then clean up after them. Only then will I tolerate your soap box moaning about human rights and the children.

Oh……and Illegals are sending (as of a 2013 Washington Times report) over 23 Billion dollars back to Mexico every year. No wonder the Mexican government lobbies our Congress and White House to ignore their citizens illegal entry into our country. And that’s just Mexico.

Just don’t try to tell any of the Establishment Republican contenders any of this. They are all too busy promising more goodies to the non citizen,  talking about the confederate flag, being obsessed with what does or doesn’t dangle between your legs and where you want to put it, and trilling the R’s in Puerrrrrto Rrrrrrico. For the childrrrrrrren, just not yours.

The New Rome is Burning, So Where’s My Fiddle?

46 murders have taken place in Chicago so far this month ( thanks, redeyechicago ). Just a brief glance at the age, race, and circumstance show a less-than-shocking similarity. Victims range from being teenagers to young people in their twenties and thirties. Where is the Leader of the Free World? No comment? Last time I checked the guy who America elected to take more taxpayer funded vacations than anyone in history was from there. Or lived there. Or maybe went to college there. Or organized there. Well… I’m pretty sure he was there for awhile. Somebody had to vote “present” instead of yes or no at all those important Illinois state senate debates. Couldn’t all those victims have been his son? Or himself? Because, you know, if it wasn’t for the swanky, ritzy, private school-in-paradise experience that our Chief grew up with, any one of those victims coulda been him. Nothing says “from the Hood” like polo shirts, tennis clubs, fruity cocktails, and an educational resume that includes words like “academy”.

See, I don’t really care that much about the whole Zimmerman/Martin thing. All I know is that regardless of all the how and why of it, anyone who has ever been beat up understands. If you’ve never had another human being decide to sit on you and start your blood flowing with multiple blows to the face, shut up. Getting your ass kicked is a pretty scary experience, and if it’s never happened to you then you don’t know what you would do, or how you would react. Also, if your first reaction to some dumpy douchebag following you while you skulk around a neighborhood in the dark is to break their face open and then sit down to do some more, you’ve got some issues as well. So let’s move beyond the Nancy Grace hysterics, shall we?

My point is this : The world is on fire. And not just a little brush fire, either. More like a Germany-about-to-invade-Poland fire.
Like a break-out-the-marshmallows-cause-Hiroshima’s-on fire- fire. And where is the cool, calm and collected dude who’s claims to lower the seas and bring peace to the middle east? On vacation? Yakking it up at a $30,000 a plate fundraiser? Or on vacation. Again? Maybe this time the First Family will keep it to the mean streets of Martha’s Vineyard. ” Muffy, we’re all out of Pinot! The hyooomahniteee!”.

Egypt is a complete mess. But why, you ask? Didn’t we support the “Arab Spring”? By the way, that sounds like a really bad personal hygiene product. I’ve gotten a whiff of it and it really stinks. It smells like civil war in Syria, military coups in Egypt, expanding Iranian power, and the devolving of Turkey into an Islamic State.

Not to mention what’s happening here on the home front. Did you know that just a few short years ago there was 1 Trillion dollars in circulation, and today there is over 3? Can you wrap your brain around that? So, is your gas/groceries/rent/ more expensive, or is your hard-earned money worth a third of what it was? Guess what, it’s both…… and it hasn’t even hit us hard yet. Hey twenty-somethings, thanks to your power at the voting booth you now have to buy health insurance! Oh… you don’t need it or want it? Too freakin’ bad kiddos, cause you can either buy it or pay an ever-increasing fine! See, someone has to pay for the rest of our “free” healthcare, and it’s you. I got to spend all my money in my twenties on concert tickets and good times, because I was healthy and didn’t need or even think about insurance. On top of that, all those nifty ADHD and depression drugs you’ve been swallowing your whole life will follow you like a pickpocket in a foreign country. Good luck with that first serious job interview when your history of teary, sad, bed wetting that your folks got you medicated for shows up. Sweet!

But hey, don’t feel bad…. Jay-Z is doing a concert in the White House, LeBron’s getting warmed up on the private b-ball court, Bon Jovi’s bringing dinner, and Oprah is gonna say grace. Because that’s how all of us, including at-risk inner city kids, roll. I’m so glad we have a real outsider in charge, you know? At least he can relate. And hey, when the lights go out, don’t worry. We’ll keep warm by the light of the fire. Where’s my fiddle?
