Twilights of Rage

OCGE reversed some of Obama’s last moment Cuba policy changeups, and insinuates that none of them will go back in that direction until, among other things, Havana hands over Joanne Chesimard, aka Assata Shakur.

ICYMI, here’s a long but excellent book review that’s probably as worthy as the book itself, that puts, among other people, the lovely and gracious Miss Chesimard, into context.  We think it’s never been worse, but the 1970s make our times look Halcyon.





Confused About Something

Washington, D.C.

If the Trump Administration isn’t softening up on Putin to the degree or at the rate we in the Alt-Right think we should, it’s precisely because of Jared Kushner.

Yet, we’re supposed to believe that Kushner wanted a secret com-link to the Kremlin, presumably to facilitate better relations?

If it is Rex Tillerson for State, then that only confirms that we’re about to do a complete 180 on Russia policy.

What did they think he was going to do?  Not talk to world leaders and spend all of the next eight years doing more seasons of The Apprentice?

And $400 million wasn’t enough.





A Lame Attempt At Unringing a Bell

Philadelphia

All this Democrat talk about “Putin hacked our e-mails in order to help Trump,” aside from the factual dubiousness of it, and aside from the fact that they’re screaming something to keep people from thinking about the content of those e-mails, (though from what I’ve seen, Bern victims are keeping their eyes on the ball), is also risky PR.  The more they keep saying it, the more they are verbally placing their nominee in a position that is hostile to Putin and Russia.  And I don’t think needless hostility to non-threatening foreign powers is a message that this electorate this year wants to hear.  Especially since on the other side of the ballot is someone who openly wants better relations with Putin and Russia.





What Else Is New?

Tel Aviv

Obama directly interfered in the most recent Israel elections.  That’s the big shocking news of the day.

Why are you looking at me expecting me to be outraged?  To me, this is as unsurprising as a dyed in the wool liberal Supreme Court justice who was appointed to the Court by the husband of the current Democrat Party nominee for President saying something less than positive about the current Republican Party nominee for President.  We all know that the United States and Israel are so tight that only an ocean, a continent and a major sea are the only reason why anyone knows they’re separate entities; otherwise, it would be impossible to tell where one ends and the other begins.  We don’t joke about “fifty-first state” for nothing.  We’re supposed to be mad that Obama tried to oust the Israeli PM with three American sheepskins (Cheltenham HS, Philadelphia, Penn., and two from MIT) whose business career started in Boston and happened at such a time when he became closely familiar with another eventual Republican Party Presidential nominee.  Mind you, this is the same Baraq Obama who plonked Stanley Fischer straight out of Israel’s central bank to be the vice-chairman of “ours.”
