Don’t worry, things may seem a little dicey at the moment, but Republican Congressmen have their priorities straight: what Americans need most right now is for Congress to push Iran around some more.

  1. Does this mean the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone won’t be able to form diplomatic relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran?

    The CHAZ autonomous area plans to expand to Bellevue Belmont intersection just a few block from the 5 freeway so they can block it at will.

    Sawant’s party, socialist alternative, is a front for the radical communist party, same people who cooperated with the AME reveruns to start the Rodney King riots and trucked in the bricks.

    It’s not just that Republicans like this Mike Johnson are clueless, Steve. They are also cowards just like most of the population they “represent”. They are used to placating or ignoring the race mongers, but this time the trouble is at a whole ‘nother level, due to the instigation by antifa, Does he think it will blow over if he and his colleagues cuck some more?

    We are in the middle of actual cultural destruction of the country, at a much higher rate than ever seen before. The cluelessness and cowardice goes all the way down. Perhaps the American people should decide they don’t want to take it anymore. This reliance on “leaders” (like Trump) has brought us exactly nowhere.

    @Achmed E. Newman

    Not to defend House Republicans from charges of cowardice, but in fairness to these Republicans the rioting and looting is happening almost exclusively in blue cities in blue states (e.g., New York, Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland), so it is really not their problem. Letting the blue states burn is a pretty good political strategy if you represent a red district, and even better if you represent a purple district. I might make a calculated political decision to do the same if I were a House Republican.

    Keep your eye on the Senate to see Republican cowardice in its full glory. The Democrats in the House will pass a reconstruction funding bill to rebuild the burned out cities. Any Republican in the Senate who votes for it should be challenged from the right in the primary.

    The American people are doing fine. The culture is not being destroyed, it's being improved in an across-the-board way. The American people want their culture to change in this drastic way to atone for their historical sins and create a better nation. You have seemed to miss this nuanced distinction between destruction of the culture and its 100% all-encompassing improvement.

    The majority of American of all colors realize that the time is ripe for changes that further the cause of JUSTICE. It's just that your view is not the view of this majority. YOU are free to try to change their minds.

  4. Not only Iran, but Russia and China too. And remember the Syrian oil wells! And Lybia. And Yemen. Don’t mention Israel.

    Call Russia ‘sponsor of TERROR’! Imperial-minded House Republicans urge return to Cold War footing & drastic sanctions policy

    The 120-page proposal unveiled by the Republican Study Committee on Wednesday is pitched as “a conservative, solutions-oriented plan for preserving American leadership around the globe.”

    “American Leadership” is a bit like a used condom right now. On the floor, and everyone is stepping around it.

    China gets the most attention in the paper, at 25 pages, followed by the Middle East with 23. Only nine pages are dedicated to Russia, but what’s in there is nothing less than a full return to Cold War footing.

    The RSC wants to designate Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism over Moscow’s – alleged – support of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Hezbollah, the Taliban, and something called the “Russian Imperial Movement.”

    It also recommends sanctions on Russian oil and gas projects – and any foreign companies involved with them; sanctions on anyone buying Russian sovereign debt; sanctions against “Russian propaganda chiefs”; and sanctioning the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications (SWIFT) until it expels Russia.

    Furthermore, it would mandate “financial exercises” of seizing Russian financial assets, expand military aid to Ukraine to include “anti-ship weapons” and expand support to EU “countering disinformation” activists and “democracy activists within Russia,” tasking the State Department to “communicate information directly to the Russian people” in order to “support their aspirations for democracy and human rights.”

    A little war near NATO countries would be right event to rally the troops, I would say. OTOH, NATO is currently performing a “Pivot to the Pacific” – that would make it TOMATO – Total Oceanic/Maritime Treaty Organization.

    Someone should really let them know that constantly touting your own leadership demonstrates the untruth of the claim better than any rebuttal could.

    And what is the deal with Mark Levin? Semi-rhetorical q, but he has to be a candidate for most loathsome total package among what passes for public intellectuals. A living brochure for Antifa, ISIS, whatever as long as they are willing to do the opposite of what this guy wants.

    I must question the necessity of resorting to such lurid imagery, which seems quite gratuitous here. But since you did resort-to it, and it now, for better or for worse, shall remain on this page indefinitely, I will take the liberty of sharing a memory from many years ago that your decidedly indelicate metaphor evoked for me. A relevance to the civilizational breakdown that we are presently witnessing will become clear by the end.

    I was innocently strolling along the beach in Corpus Christi, Texas, at the tender age of 14, when I was arrested by the sight of many of the very articles of flotsam that you referenced, strewn about before my eyes. I experienced a visceral, mixed reaction that was, simultaneously, one of titillation, as well as of revulsion, disturbance and apprehension. I can now see much into the latter, sobering and uncomfortable sentiments that I likely would not have been able to articulate or even fully recognize at the time. The carelessly discarded, spent prophylactics before me were stark, imposing, inescapable evidence of a licentiousness and irreverence that I perceived (quite reasonably, I would add) as sinister.

    Part of this, I'm sure, was the connection I had made by that time-- if perhaps no more than subconsciously-- between said licentiousness and the creation of unwanted, inconvenient yet nonetheless sacred life that, if not aborted, would be born into unfortunate and even cruel circumstances. (I note that this sensibility of mine was instinctual, predating any defined, tangible religious or other ideological principles that I would later espouse and develop.) Moreover, beyond any of the unwholesomeness or depravity that could be directly associated with any of the specific behavior symbolized by the raw, scabrous imagery of the sordid refuse in-question, was the larger specter of breeches of restraint, social order and morality-- in general-- and the many, less-than-sanguine implications and threats of such.

    What are you gonna say to the Republican-voting small business owner whose business was torched during the riots? People seem to have this impression that it was the mansions of the elites which got torched. I did get a kick out of Nike getting looted, but for every Nike there were a hundred small businesses owned by middle class whites or Asians, or Targets and Walmarts which serve the middle and working classes. Tell that small business owner you're going to primary someone over him giving aid because 23rds of the recipients will be Democrats, but are totally fine with the (mostly Democrat-voting) investor class getting their taxes cut.

    Call Russia ‘sponsor of TERROR’! Imperial-minded House Republicans urge return to Cold War footing & drastic sanctions policy


    The 120-page proposal unveiled by the Republican Study Committee on Wednesday is pitched as “a conservative, solutions-oriented plan for preserving American leadership around the globe.”
     
    "American Leadership" is a bit like a used condom right now. On the floor, and everyone is stepping around it.

    China gets the most attention in the paper, at 25 pages, followed by the Middle East with 23. Only nine pages are dedicated to Russia, but what’s in there is nothing less than a full return to Cold War footing.

    The RSC wants to designate Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism over Moscow’s – alleged – support of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Hezbollah, the Taliban, and something called the “Russian Imperial Movement.”

    It also recommends sanctions on Russian oil and gas projects - and any foreign companies involved with them; sanctions on anyone buying Russian sovereign debt; sanctions against “Russian propaganda chiefs”; and sanctioning the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications (SWIFT) until it expels Russia.

    Furthermore, it would mandate “financial exercises” of seizing Russian financial assets, expand military aid to Ukraine to include “anti-ship weapons” and expand support to EU “countering disinformation” activists and “democracy activists within Russia,” tasking the State Department to “communicate information directly to the Russian people” in order to “support their aspirations for democracy and human rights.”

    Not to defend House Republicans from charges of cowardice, but in fairness to these Republicans the rioting and looting is happening almost exclusively in blue cities in blue states (e.g., New York, Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland), so it is really not their problem. Letting the blue states burn is a pretty good political strategy if you represent a red district, and even better if you represent a purple district. I might make a calculated political decision to do the same if I were a House Republican.

    Keep your eye on the Senate to see Republican cowardice in its full glory. The Democrats in the House will pass a reconstruction funding bill to rebuild the burned out cities. Any Republican in the Senate who votes for it should be challenged from the right in the primary.

    I must question the necessity of resorting to such lurid imagery, which seems quite gratuitous here. But since you did resort-to it, and it now, for better or for worse, shall remain on this page indefinitely, I will take the liberty of sharing a memory from many years ago that your decidedly indelicate metaphor evoked for me. A relevance to the civilizational breakdown that we are presently witnessing will become clear by the end.

    I was innocently strolling along the beach in Corpus Christi, Texas, at the tender age of 14, when I was arrested by the sight

    of many of the very articles of flotsam that you referenced, strewn about before my eyes. I experienced a visceral, mixed reaction that was, simultaneously, one of titillation, as well as of revulsion, disturbance and apprehension. I can now see much into the latter, sobering and uncomfortable sentiments that I likely would not have been able to articulate or even fully recognize at the time. The carelessly discarded, spent prophylactics before me were stark, imposing, inescapable evidence of a licentiousness and irreverence that I perceived (quite reasonably, I would add) as sinister.

    Part of this, I’m sure, was the connection I had made by that time– if perhaps no more than subconsciously– between said licentiousness and the creation of unwanted, inconvenient yet nonetheless sacred life that, if not aborted, would be born into unfortunate and even cruel circumstances. (I note that this sensibility of mine was instinctual, predating any defined, tangible religious or other ideological principles that I would later espouse and develop.) Moreover, beyond any of the unwholesomeness or depravity that could be directly associated with any of the specific behavior symbolized by the raw, scabrous imagery of the sordid refuse in-question, was the larger specter of breeches of restraint, social order and morality– in general– and the many, less-than-sanguine implications and threats of such.
