The following graph shows, by partisan affiliation, what Americans perceive as the country’s “greatest foe”. “Not sure” responses, constituting 22% of the total, are excluded. Some portion of these “not sure” respondents likely abstained from answering because they don’t see what they perceive as the greatest foe listed. I’d like to see Mexico, Israel, and Saudi Arabia included, but the survey only presents the five shown below and the “not sure” option. We work with what we have:

If I take the survey, I’m in with the plurality of Republicans.

North Korea is nothing beyond what China will allow it to be.

Russia’s economy is one-sixth the size of China’s. It barely has one-tenth as many people. Three years of the Russia Hoax has unnecessarily pushed the bear towards the dragon.

Iran is why Israel and Saudi Arabia need to be included on the list.

The Taliban is cringe-inducing.

    I tend to think that the US doesn’t really have many “foes,” except of its own, easily-remedied creation. If we minded our business and controlled our borders, I don’t really see which foreign entities would have the will and capacity to do Americans significant harm. Indeed, even as it is, by the standards of most historical “empires,” if one wishes to so classify the modern US, America gets off quite lightly.

  3. Considering none of those 5 things is an actual enemy of the US, the responses merely reflect which line of media disinformation each respondent prefers to accept.

    Mexico is the only country I would consider a legitimate enemy of the US.

I’d add the UK to the list, personally, for more ideological reasons: their involvement in our media, their ability to steer U.S. policy in ways that benefit them, to say nothing of MI6 and the dossier. And after watching Trump bend over for Modi today in front of 50,000 sub-prime doctors and code jockeys, I would also add India.

  7. Crimes Against Humanity Committed with Impunity

    https://christiantruthproject.com/american-israeli-crimes-against-humanity/

    There are two primary nations that claim God’s blessings, and both have committed heinous crimes against humanity for decades with impunity.

    While it is true that the majority will tolerate crimes against humanity, in order to maintain a materialistic lifestyle at the expense of others, a minority still finds this behavior reprehensible.

    The irrational group-think mindset that would condone this behavior obviously leads to dysfunctional life decisions, and a mob rule sort of mentality. The mental coping mechanism necessary to justify these crimes against humanity is the antithesis of all that is called good.

    Matt 13:15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

    The demented behavior that condones murder, theft and the destruction of others represents a phenomenon known as the nation-state exceptionalism syndrome.

    The unprecedented crimes against humanity that have occurred around the world are deplorable. The Zionist Master Plan for World Domination is at the heart of this chaos through a continual barrage of bloodshed and war.

    God is not a partner to the judeo-christian deceivers in the false church, and their many blind followers who are apathetic towards this iniquity. There is a unique relationship between Israel and America that is truly demonic.

    America the strong arm of the Great Whore, has murdered tens of millions of innocent people since the start of World War two and has ruined much of the civilized world in the process.

    The identity of the Great Whore is revealed through observing how she interacts with those around her. Her leaders are like unto wolves that devour their prey. These people use oppression on the poor and those in need, and they are without compassion. They take what is not rightfully theirs, and with great cruelty trample down those around them unnecessarily. They are also quick to shed blood and love dishonest gain which is covetousness. They are guilty of breaking all of the commandments of Moses and worthy of God’s wrath (Ezek 22:24-30).

    These crimes against humanity, as recorded in Ezekiel chapter twenty-two describe the characteristics of a modern day nation that almost completely controls America today.

    Ezek 22:31 Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD.

    Pour out my indignation and consume with the fire of my wrath, is a better translation of the message in Ezek 22:31. The words, therefore, as well as have I, are added without warrant suggesting that this wrath has already taken place.

    The coalition of kings or rulers who are a part of the final empire of destruction that comes against this Great whore and her allies is already underway. God will put it into their hearts to fulfill his will, and at their hands, this Whore shall finally be destroyed (Rev 17:17).

    Rev 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

    The Word of God tells us that these kings or rulers will give their kingdom unto the beast (Rev 12:3, 13:1, 17:12-17). When the current leader of the existing world empire is destroyed, namely the Great Whore, her military partner in crime will also be eliminated.

    Dan 7:19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet

    The 43rd president of America, who is a war criminal, said it best when he stated: “you’re either with us or you are against us.” He openly declared war on planet earth, and any country that would stand in the way of the zio-american military subjugation would pay dearly. In order for many end times prophecies to transpire, this current satanic coalition must first be taken down.

    Dan 7:24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings

    When Mystery Babylon is revealed, Satan will introduce to the world his false Christ and false prophet of deception. This is a representation of the unholy trinity, Satan the Beast and the false prophet.

  10. Sid says:

    I went to a panel recently about Russian disinformation efforts. Once it was over, I asked the Belgian social democrat if Brussels elites believe Trump colluded with Russia. He said no: the preponderance of evidence suggests there were some Russian efforts to propagate his messaging, but Trump didn’t even expect to win the election. Since then, the Trump has taken many hard actions against Russia. Remember when the US smoked 200 Russian mercenaries in Syria?

    And this came from a guy who just spent the previous hour and a half outlining all the ways Russian agitprop is trying to screw over his side in European politics!

    The only people who think Russia is the number one threat to the USA are American Democrats who’ve gulped down massive heapings of the Kool-Aid. Even if you see Russia as an adversary, or at least an unfriendly competitor, a realistic, fact-based assessment will lead you to understand other countries are far more damaging to US interests.

    Is it Mexico’s job to stop it for free? No.

  21. North Korea is nothing beyond what China will allow it to be.

    It would be big of me to say that Mr. Epigone has delivered a line of such singular succinctness that it is almost Shakespearean in its brevity and largeness of scope.

    North Korean is a barking, snarling dog in the front yard of China and the American Empire should avoid the neighborhood. Let the South Koreans and the Russians and the Japanese and the Chinese deal with the frisky North Korean cur.

    The American Empire should instruct the Japanese and the South Koreans to turn the screw and get a nuclear deterrent. The American Empire should conduct negotiations with the US Marines about giving up their military bases in that portion of the Pacific. The US Marines will tell the American Empire to screw off with this talk about giving up their territory and bases, but it must be done. I hope the US Marines don’t have nukes!

    The American Empire should also instruct the Germans, Australians and Italians to get a nuclear deterrent.

    Didn’t that Swiss guy named Eisenhower talk about more bang for the buck and stuff in regards to the American Empire and foreign policy?

    The United States of America should begin to get a 700 billion dollar budget for military Keynesianism just like the American Empire has a war budget of 700 billion dollars or so.

    The United States of America military can begin a massive and immediate deportation of the upwards of 30 million illegal alien invaders in the USA. Private citizens should be given bounties for each illegal alien invader they deport just like they did in the pioneering days with troublesome creatures of a human and animal type.

    The USA can also conduct a massive removal of foreigners and their spawn from the USA. I’d say 50 or 60 million will have to go.

    The origins of the American Empire is Vikings and Saxons and Angles and their helpmates called the Celts. The American Empire is now under the control of a hostile JEW/WASP ruling class that uses it to attack and destroy the United States of America.

    GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

  22. I’d like to see Mexico, Israel, and Saudi Arabia included, but the survey only presents the five shown below and the “not sure” option.

    Mexico and Israel and Saudi Arabia are a clear and present threat to the safety, security and sovereignty of the United States of America.

    The treasonous JEW/WASP ruling class of the American Empire puts the interests of Mexico, Israel and Saudi Arabia ahead of the interests of the United States of America.

    Carlos Slim is a Mexican billionaire who colludes with the treasonous JEW/WASP ruling class of the American Empire to flood tens of millions of Mexicans and other foreigners into the USA.

    Shelly Adelson is a Jew billionaire who has bought and paid for the foreign policy of Trump and the Republican Party in regards to Israel. Trump and the Republican Party put the interests of Israel ahead of the interests of the USA at the behest of Shelly Adelson and his campaign contributions. Shelly Adelson is now telling Trumpy to make nice with the Chinese Communist Party on trade policy because of Adelson’s casino interests in the territory controlled by the Chinese Communist Party.

    At least Trumpy hasn’t nuked the Iranians or started a war with the Iranians like Adelson wants. Trumpy is messing with the Iranian monetary system pretty good though.

    Trump should demand another 500 billion dollars or so from the Saudi Arabians. The American Empire has engaged in war numerous times for the Saudi Arabian ruling class, and they ain’t paid up enough for it.

    It’s time the JEW/WASP ruling class of the American Empire puts the interests of the USA ahead of the interests of the ungrateful ingrates in the Mexican ruling class and the Israeli ruling class and the Saudi Arabian ruling class.

  23. “Russia’s economy is one-sixth the size of China’s. It barely has one-tenth as many people.”

    If I am reading that statement correctly, that means that Russia’s per capita GDP is higher than China’s. Yet we are constantly being told that China is going to overtake the USA as the world’s economic superpower.

    I’m with Sailer on this one. Forget the absolute size of the economy, what matters is per capita GDP, or you prefer, standard of living.

    Forget the absolute size of the economy, what matters is per capita GDP, or you prefer, standard of living.

    Generally “Western” economy metrics are crap. Especially nominal values in US Dollar. Purchase Power Parity index, while much more accurate than “nominal” value”, still lacks. People who start converting foreign wages directly into US Dollars are also needed to be put back into classroom and given basic course in math and economics.

    If I am reading that statement correctly, that means that Russia’s per capita GDP is higher than China’s

    Russian per capita GDP is higher, substantially higher.

    Yet we are constantly being told that China is going to overtake the USA as the world’s economic superpower.

    China already overtook the United States as the world’s economic superpower. United States continues to maintain some substantial leads over China in some key industries (such as aerospace), in others–it is not even a competitor anymore. Data on the size of US GDP is a complete baloney–mostly fantasies of Wall Street “economists”. US GDP is much, I underscore it, much, smaller than is reported.

  26. @Sgt. Joe Friday

    “Forget the absolute size of the economy, what matters is per capita GDP, or you prefer, standard of living”

    Not in terms of threat level to a country. Soviet per capita GDP was way below German in 1941, but quantity has a quality all of its own.

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Russian per capita GDP was higher than China’s, but an extra 800 million Chinese people makes the Chinese economy much bigger. Who makes your motherboards, TVs and phones?

    Per capita GDP and total GDP are entirely separate concepts, applicable in entirely different situations. Military strength depends on total GDP, not per capita GDP. That is, unless you are willing to claim that Switzerland has a stronger military than China.

    Someone who doesn’t even grasp that much has no business commenting on the topic.

    Entering and residing in the country without permission IS criminal.

    As for the whole, “Just this once for the illegals,” we already saw that movie in 1986 with the Simpson-Mazzoli Act.

    The act also legalized most undocumented immigrants who had arrived in the country prior to January 1, 1982. Despite the passage of the act, the number of undocumented immigrants in the United States rose from 5 million in 1986 to 11.1 in 2013.

    Popular and bi-partisan opposition towards illegal immigration and affirmative action peaked in the early 90’s, but even then, the GOP totally no-showed aside from Pete Wilson successfully advocating the denial of government services to illegal aliens in California by letting the public vote YES to pass this policy….Only for his party-mates to later criticize the policy as “anti-Latino” and detrimental to the GOP’s image, and the state GOP ultimately did not fight to reverse the court ruling that struck down the policy.

    We’ve now reached a point of such corruption and division that serious efforts to clamp down on immigration or multi-culturalism will likely ignite a civil war. We saw how elites lost their shit after the “travel ban” was installed in 2016(and the courts, who have been worthless on most key issues for decades, over-turned the travel ban to please decadent elites and their toadies).

    It could be argued that, the law having fallen into desuetude, it should not be arbitrarily re-enforced*. I don’t think that applies to the illegal alien situation, though, both considering the relatively short time of relative non-enforcement (compared to, say, the centuries of desuetude of the use of the ducking-stool for scolds) and the fact that the law has actually been continuously enforced, if very poorly and spottily.

I suspect such explication would separate a lot of wheat from the chaff and point to the near impossibility of including VDare types in a political coalition that aimed to save America.

    Get control of our border and birthright citizenship and birth tourism will be moot.

    A lot of the polls I look at also ask about primary support among Republicans. Trump gets 90%, the other clowns get 1% or 2%. Among a strong majority of Republican voters, the GOP has become Trump’s party. It could be cult of personality, but I doubt it. There are people more likable than Trump who can run on Trumpism.

    Haha, I use a middle-brow version of that on a regular basis: “We’re just one more law away from freedom!”

    That phrase could be interpreted in an Orwellian manner!

    Oh yeah, it’s meant to be said sarcastically.
