    Nothing says “national security” like incredible kindness.
     
    The real joke here isn't even "kind". It is "national security".

    Biden, the Democrats, these people do not love our nation, nor even believe in having nations. They are open borders globalists. So preening about "national security" is a complete joke.

    Can we get even one Republican politician to skewer these nimrods with this point?

    Republicans, conservatives constantly get--"racist! racist! racist!"--abuse from these a*holes. Can we get even one willing to fight back and exploit these gaping weaknesses in the parasite party? And educate the American people about what scummy lowlifes they are in the process?

    This one is trivial. "National security" isn't fundamentally about having America friendly Ukrainians rather than Russia friendly Ukrainians in power nor blowing up some America hating goombah's daughter's wedding. The entire point of all the nukes, missiles, submarines, aircraft carriers, fighters and bombers, tanks and infantry is to insure that your nation's territory is never invaded, never taken and is passed down intact to the nation's people's posterity.

    The Democrats are against that! They are for open borders and allowing foreigners to swarm in and at will and take American territory and jobs and housing from Americans.

    Yes, the Democrats favor "Banker security", "Goldman Sachs security", "Davos man security", "Woke capital security" ... basically "Elite parasite security". But they most certainly do not believe in "National security" because they do not believe in nations!

    Can we have just one Republican make this obvious point?

  11. President Obama, who hoped to sow peace, instead led the nation in war

    Before he took office in 2008, Barack Obama vowed to end America’s grueling conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. During his second term, he pledged to take the country off what he called a permanent war footing…

    U.S. military forces have been at war for all eight years of Obama’s tenure, the first two-term president with that distinction. He launched airstrikes or military raids in at least seven countries: Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan.

    Obama, the Greatest War President: a Book Review

    “Obama’s presidency in many ways shows how liberal-progressive politicians can be more dangerous than their conservative counterparts, who tend to be more truthful in their aspirations to dominate the world.”

    Jeremy Kuzmarov has written a seminal book on the US Military Empire led for eight years by a brown-faced president residing in the African slave-constructed White House…

    Obama, the drone president, stood for seven aggressive wars at once, more than any other US president. In my view he was the worst president in US history…

    Chapters eight and nine… cover the war in Syria, the US-neo-fascist coup in Ukraine

    The Biden family was one of the major beneficiaries of America’s interference in Ukraine.”

    “Obama ordered 563 drone strikes against Middle Eastern and African peoples plus more than 1000 in Afghanistan.”

    “Expert sources believe bin Laden had long been dead from an incurable renal failure requiring constant dialysis.”

    Under Qaddafi, no Libyan went to bed hungry. Every newly-wed couple received $50,000 to start a family. [!]

    Conservatives definitely will not be allowed to mock them, though. The left raged for four years, waiting to be in charge.

    The Libya whack job (if only Gaddafi had been a made man in the Davos crime family!) was particularly egregious as by then there was no excuse for not knowing what sort of hell would be unleashed once the capo dei capi of a third world Muslim military dictatorship was liquidated.

    But Obama and his gang were idealists and “good people”. So far the most worthwhile observation of Moldbug’s I ever read was his comment that humanitarians of Powers’s bent are never troubled by the catastrophes they unleash on other people so long as their motives, based on their own subjective assessments, are pure. Libya was turned into a hell on earth- gang warfare, banditry, roving battalions of terrorist-thieves who loot and burn and then torture their victims just for fun. It is such a black hole of concentrated misery and despair that literally information cannot escape and so the few awful reports we receive are only of a fraction of the actual horror on the ground.

    Samantha Power was schlepping some book earlier this year about how, despite the people of Libya so totally letting her down, she was not about to stop being an idealist and shoving her idealism down the worlds’s throat. This woman who in terms of the civilians she is directly responsible for killing or displacing from their homes as refugees outdid Mussolini.

    I know of the New America Foundation because they fired Barry C. Lynn, who writes about anti-trust issues and oligarchic capitalism, for criticism of google, a New America founder. He's well worth reading, and by his enemies you may know him. Anne-Marie Slaughter, who fired him, heads the NAF. She was a Hillary Clinton undersecretary at the State Department and was part of Jeffrey Toobin's wedding.

    "Lynn has written extensively on the potential risks of unfettered globalization and industrial interdependence. In End of the Line he proposes that a deeply interconnected global industrial system undermines safety and freedom. His work argues how the relentless quest for efficiency, and practices like outsourcing to a single factory and “just-in-time” production, could create an increasingly fragile system, where one isolated shock could crash entire industries.

    Lynn’s work also focuses on the effects of extreme concentration of political economic power. In Cornered he argues that radical consolidation has birthed present day monopolies that dominate and control virtually every major industry in America. He argues that these new monopolies are squelching innovation, degrading product quality and safety, and destabilizing vital industrial and financial systems. His work argues that from the American Revolution to the Second New Deal, Americans traditionally resisted concentration of power and believed that its distribution is critical for freedom and democracy. He argues that the US must revive its antitrust laws to recover real open markets, resilient systems, and liberty.

    He was a senior fellow at the New America Foundation think tank in Washington, D.C., where he directed the Open Markets Program.

    In August 2017, Lynn was fired and the Open Markets Program terminated by Anne-Marie Slaughter, the President and CEO of New America Foundation. A collective letter signed by 25 New America’s former and current fellows, including prominent journalists such as George Packer of The New Yorker and notable scholars such as Evgeny Morozov of Harvard University was delivered to Anne-Marie Slaughter and New America’s directors. The letter argued that the handling of the situation by Slaughter had damaged the think tank’s reputation.[4][5]

    Lynn has moved the team of researchers and advocates that had been with him at New America, and has created an independent nonprofit organization, the Open Markets Institute.[6][7]"

    The Libya whack job (if only Gaddafi had been a made man in the Davos crime family!) was particularly egregious as by then there was no excuse for not knowing what sort of hell would be unleashed once the capo dei capi of a third world Muslim military dictatorship was liquidated.

    But Obama and his gang were idealists and “good people”. So far the most worthwhile observation of Moldbug’s I ever read was his comment that humanitarians of Powers’s bent are never troubled by the catastrophes they unleash on other people so long as their motives, based on their own subjective assessments, are pure. Libya was turned into a hell on earth- gang warfare, banditry, roving battalions of terrorist-thieves who loot and burn and then torture their victims just for fun. It is such a black hole of concentrated misery and despair that literally information cannot escape and so the few awful reports we receive are only of a fraction of the actual horror on the ground.

    Samantha Power was schlepping some book earlier this year about how, despite the people of Libya so totally letting her down, she was not about to stop being an idealist and shoving her idealism down the worlds’s throat. This woman who in terms of the civilians she is directly responsible for killing or displacing from their homes as refugees outdid Mussolini. Incredible the sort of sociopathy Powering such complete self-unawareness.

    That's right: evil though they will no doubt turn out to be, the Harris administration comes in with a team of people with compatible views and goals.

In contrast, Trump opened the floodgates to grifters, opportunists, and sycophants of all colors, who thought that he was a muppet and had openly said so in advance. So the more the media pissed on the Donald, the more his own people undermined his authority with Russiagating and gossip on their boss.

After this, he needed real money to play with Hillary in Premier League, so of course he immediately ran to Adelson, Singer, Marcus, and whomever else had a couple shekels to spare, in order to sell himself out. It is only ever thus: at Trump's inauguration there was a donor ball, business as usual, and none of the voters of Donald the casino operator caught on that they'd been had.

    She was a senior adviser to Senator Barack Obama until March 2008, when she resigned from his presidential campaign after apologizing for referring to then-Senator Hillary Clinton as “a monster” during an interview, off the record.

    She is sincere as evidenced by having tweeted this a few months ago

    I do not think that Samantha Power’s nature lets her remain in any administration, but her utopian mindset is a common one. Years ago I saw in an online discussion of US foreign policy with Stephen Walt of how she is unashamedly all about atrocity prevention and not any any kind of diplomat. About the ‘for the sake of human rights’ international intervention policy Walt wrote a book, The Hell of Good Intentions, in which he advocated Nixonian balancing instead of liberal interventionism.

    Dems didn't like Biden and Harris until they selected them to "defeat" bad orange man. Now they love them. Sort of.
    Conservatives definitely will not be allowed to mock them, though. The left raged for four years, waiting to be in charge. They will squelch everything conservatives say or do, just because they can. You cannot overestimate the vindictiveness of outraged narcissists, which is really all the left are.

    That's right: evil though they will no doubt turn out to be, the Harris administration comes in with a team of people with compatible views and goals. Better be nice to them, or no access for you. In contrast, Trump opened the floodgates to grifters, opportunists, and sycophants of all colors, who thought that he was a muppet and had openly said so in advance. So the more the media pissed on the Donald, the more his own people undermined his authority with Russiagating and gossip on their boss.

    The Godfather is relevant here: they're all crooks, but a competent Don can nonetheless surround himself with people whom he can trust and control. Show-wrestling MC Trump has the opposite skillset as a constant source of feuds and controversy, which after all is TV-ratings gold.

    Bottom line Trump has been a flaming incompetent, and Washington DC is now purging him from its system.

    President Obama, who hoped to sow peace, instead led the nation in war

    Before he took office in 2008, Barack Obama vowed to end America’s grueling conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. During his second term, he pledged to take the country off what he called a permanent war footing...

    U.S. military forces have been at war for all eight years of Obama’s tenure, the first two-term president with that distinction. He launched airstrikes or military raids in at least seven countries: Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan.



    Obama, the Greatest War President: a Book Review

    “Obama’s presidency in many ways shows how liberal-progressive politicians can be more dangerous than their conservative counterparts, who tend to be more truthful in their aspirations to dominate the world.”

    Jeremy Kuzmarov has written a seminal book on the US Military Empire led for eight years by a brown-faced president residing in the African slave-constructed White House...

    Obama, the drone president, stood for seven aggressive wars at once, more than any other US president. In my view he was the worst president in US history...


    Chapters eight and nine... cover the war in Syria, the US-neo-fascist coup in Ukraine...

    The Biden family was one of the major beneficiaries of America’s interference in Ukraine.”

    “Obama ordered 563 drone strikes against Middle Eastern and African peoples plus more than 1000 in Afghanistan.”

    “Expert sources believe bin Laden had long been dead from an incurable renal failure requiring constant dialysis.”

    His independence was true at best only during the 2016 primary, which he won in part by mercilessly hammering home that all of his opponents were bought puppets. After this, he needed real money to play with Hillary in Premier League, so of course he immediately ran to Adelson, Singer, Marcus, and whomever else had a couple shekels to spare, in order to sell himself out. It is only ever thus: at Trump’s inauguration there was a donor ball, business as usual, and none of the voters of Donald the casino operator caught on that they’d been had.

    Even years before all this, Donald the Incompetent had been bankrupt and bailed-out multiple times, not to mention that he’d earned some Air Miles aboard the Lolita Express. Bottom line he was a deeply compromised figure who was never going to make a stand against TPTB–the only reason he was being tolerated for a while.

So far the most worthwhile observation of Moldbug’s I ever read was his comment that humanitarians of Powers’s bent are never troubled by the catastrophes they unleash on other people so long as their motives, based on their own subjective assessments, are pure. Libya was turned into a hell on earth- gang warfare, banditry, roving battalions of terrorist-thieves who loot and burn and then torture their victims just for fun. It is such a black hole of concentrated misery and despair that literally information cannot escape and so the few awful reports we receive are only of a fraction of the actual horror on the ground.

    Samantha Power was schlepping some book earlier this year about how, despite the people of Libya so totally letting her down, she was not about to stop being an idealist and shoving her idealism down the worlds’s throat. This woman who in terms of the civilians she is directly responsible for killing or displacing from their homes as refugees outdid Mussolini. Incredible the sort of sociopathy Powering such complete self-unawareness.

    President Obama, who hoped to sow peace, instead led the nation in war

    Before he took office in 2008, Barack Obama vowed to end America’s grueling conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. During his second term, he pledged to take the country off what he called a permanent war footing...

    U.S. military forces have been at war for all eight years of Obama’s tenure, the first two-term president with that distinction. He launched airstrikes or military raids in at least seven countries: Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan.



    Obama, the Greatest War President: a Book Review

    “Obama’s presidency in many ways shows how liberal-progressive politicians can be more dangerous than their conservative counterparts, who tend to be more truthful in their aspirations to dominate the world.”

    Jeremy Kuzmarov has written a seminal book on the US Military Empire led for eight years by a brown-faced president residing in the African slave-constructed White House...

    Obama, the drone president, stood for seven aggressive wars at once, more than any other US president. In my view he was the worst president in US history...


    Chapters eight and nine... cover the war in Syria, the US-neo-fascist coup in Ukraine...

    The Biden family was one of the major beneficiaries of America’s interference in Ukraine.”

    “Obama ordered 563 drone strikes against Middle Eastern and African peoples plus more than 1000 in Afghanistan.”

    “Expert sources believe bin Laden had long been dead from an incurable renal failure requiring constant dialysis.”



    Under Qaddafi, no Libyan went to bed hungry. Every newly-wed couple received $50,000 to start a family. [!]

     

    Replies: @Ron Mexico, @AndrewR, @Jack D

    I’m sorry but Kuzmarov’s book is a steaming pile of crap. “Experts” were wrong – Bin Laden was very much alive until we shot him in the head at close range. If he needed dialysis (he probably didn’t) then his friends at the Pakistan ISI would have arranged it for him anyway.

    Can we get even one Republican politician to skewer these nimrods with this point?

    Republicans, conservatives constantly get–“racist! racist! racist!”–abuse from these a*holes. Can we get even one willing to fight back and exploit these gaping weaknesses in the parasite party? And educate the American people about what scummy lowlifes they are in the process?

    This one is trivial. “National security” isn’t fundamentally about having America friendly Ukrainians rather than Russia friendly Ukrainians in power nor blowing up some America hating goombah’s daughter’s wedding. The entire point of all the nukes, missiles, submarines, aircraft carriers, fighters and bombers, tanks and infantry is to insure that your nation’s territory is never invaded, never taken and is passed down intact to the nation’s people’s posterity.

    The Democrats are against that! They are for open borders and allowing foreigners to swarm in and at will and take American territory and jobs and housing from Americans.

    Yes, the Democrats favor “Banker security”, “Goldman Sachs security”, “Davos man security”, “Woke capital security” … basically “Elite parasite security”. But they most certainly do not believe in “National security” because they do not believe in nations!

    Good, but the second line doesn't scan properly. Try "All is pharmaceutical."

    Parody is serious business here at iSteve. With the likes of The one they call Desanex, or Eustace Tilley (not), either of whom can whip off a first-rate limerick faster than you can take off your socks, you have to be on your game at all times. No slacking allowed.

    Now try something catchy, to the tune of the DK's "Police Truck." I'll start you off:

    Tonight's the night that we got the truck,
    We're gonna beat you up if you voted for Trump!
    Break your arms, break your legs as well,
    If you voted for Hitler, you're going to Hell,
    So ride, ride, how we ride!

    Samantha Powers' motorcade killed a kid in Africa. Obama paid about $1700 in blood money to make the problem go away. Not very "nice." The press made it seem like she was the victim. Imagine if one of Trump's...ah screw it. The point is this Irish gutterslug is back in business now and will soon be doing what she does best, sending planes and bombs to the Middle East while claiming it's all part of a Save the Children fundraising telethon. That really is the genius of liberal interventionism.

    What does Luke Hartig actually do?

    "Luke Hartig (@LukeHartig) is a fellow in New America’s International Security program. He is also executive director of National Journal’s Network Science Initiative, a research effort that maps policy influencers and the connections among them."

    I ask again: what does he do? What is New America’s International Security program? I don't know, but it attracts a lot of money.

    Here's a list of companies funding New America ("a national network of innovative problem-solvers is focused on advancing a vision of a renewed America").

    The #1 donor is Pivotal Ventures LLC (Melinda Gates).

    I know of the New America Foundation because they fired Barry C. Lynn, who writes about anti-trust issues and oligarchic capitalism, for criticism of google, a New America founder. He’s well worth reading, and by his enemies you may know him. Anne-Marie Slaughter, who fired him, heads the NAF. She was a Hillary Clinton undersecretary at the State Department and was part of Jeffrey Toobin’s wedding.

    “Lynn has written extensively on the potential risks of unfettered globalization and industrial interdependence. In End of the Line he proposes that a deeply interconnected global industrial system undermines safety and freedom. His work argues how the relentless quest for efficiency, and practices like outsourcing to a single factory and “just-in-time” production, could create an increasingly fragile system, where one isolated shock could crash entire industries.

    Lynn’s work also focuses on the effects of extreme concentration of political economic power. In Cornered he argues that radical consolidation has birthed present day monopolies that dominate and control virtually every major industry in America. He argues that these new monopolies are squelching innovation, degrading product quality and safety, and destabilizing vital industrial and financial systems. His work argues that from the American Revolution to the Second New Deal, Americans traditionally resisted concentration of power and believed that its distribution is critical for freedom and democracy. He argues that the US must revive its antitrust laws to recover real open markets, resilient systems, and liberty.

    He was a senior fellow at the New America Foundation think tank in Washington, D.C., where he directed the Open Markets Program.

    In August 2017, Lynn was fired and the Open Markets Program terminated by Anne-Marie Slaughter, the President and CEO of New America Foundation. A collective letter signed by 25 New America’s former and current fellows, including prominent journalists such as George Packer of The New Yorker and notable scholars such as Evgeny Morozov of Harvard University was delivered to Anne-Marie Slaughter and New America’s directors. The letter argued that the handling of the situation by Slaughter had damaged the think tank’s reputation.[4][5]

    Lynn has moved the team of researchers and advocates that had been with him at New America, and has created an independent nonprofit organization, the Open Markets Institute.[6][7]”

    "I don't think Samantha [Power] has been thrilled by anything deep in decades."

    Well, at last report, she was married to Harvard law professor and full-time nudge (pronounced "noodge") Cass Sunstein, whose idea of seduction is a five-part discourse on why the "discrete and insular minorities" footnote is still viable in today's constitutional jurisprudence.

    By the time Sunstein gets to part 4(C)(i)(a)(3), Samantha's likely taken matters into her own hands...her and her purple saguaro.

    Replies: @guest

    Case Sunstein’s method of seduction when he’s feeling especially randy is to discuss the ethics of live vivisection of one’s spouse, taking Mz. Powers as example. Going into painstaking detail of her waking autopsy (kept still by paralytics).

    Nothing says “national security” like incredible kindness.
     
    The real joke here isn't even "kind". It is "national security".

    Biden, the Democrats, these people do not love our nation, nor even believe in having nations. They are open borders globalists. So preening about "national security" is a complete joke.

    Can we get even one Republican politician to skewer these nimrods with this point?

    Republicans, conservatives constantly get--"racist! racist! racist!"--abuse from these a*holes. Can we get even one willing to fight back and exploit these gaping weaknesses in the parasite party? And educate the American people about what scummy lowlifes they are in the process?

    This one is trivial. "National security" isn't fundamentally about having America friendly Ukrainians rather than Russia friendly Ukrainians in power nor blowing up some America hating goombah's daughter's wedding. The entire point of all the nukes, missiles, submarines, aircraft carriers, fighters and bombers, tanks and infantry is to insure that your nation's territory is never invaded, never taken and is passed down intact to the nation's people's posterity.

    The Democrats are against that! They are for open borders and allowing foreigners to swarm in and at will and take American territory and jobs and housing from Americans.

    Yes, the Democrats favor "Banker security", "Goldman Sachs security", "Davos man security", "Woke capital security" ... basically "Elite parasite security". But they most certainly do not believe in "National security" because they do not believe in nations!

    Can we have just one Republican make this obvious point?
