MUELLER’S LEGACY IS HIS BEING GUILTY OF OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE

trump-tweets-081418Some 450 days ago we were treated to melodramatic announcements from the media about the start-up of Robert Mueller’s “dream” and “all-star” team.

Reporters gushed in the general hysteria of the times that Mueller would no doubt soon indict President Trump, some of his family, and almost anyone else in his campaign—and therefore end the Trump aberration.

Although that Mueller mandate of collusion was never formally defined, much less explained as a criminal offense, the media salivated at the idea that Mueller’s whiz kids nonetheless were going to find it and no doubt thereby usher in impeachment.

Now we have gone from melodrama to bathos.

PROSPERITY, THE RULE OF LAW, AND MR. MUELLER

Will Chinits-mueller-time overtake the United States as the world’s largest economy?

Perhaps, because it has about four times as many people as the United States. But U.S. per capita income will still be far greater unless China can institute a rule of law equal to that of the rich nations – or the rule of law continues to weaken in the United States.

The level of economic prosperity is closely tied to the rule of law.

In June, the World Justice Project (WSJ) issued its 2017-2018 Rule of Law Index. There are 113 countries listed.  The United States ranks #19, while China ranks #75.

The United States is no longer in the top 10 countries when it comes to the rule of law. The two main reasons are the administrative state – and corruption in the U.S. Justice Department and the FBI.   Of which the Mueller investigation is Exhibit A.

SEND IN THE MARINE TODAY

Kevin Nicholson is the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate who neither the Wisconsin GOP chieftains nor the Democrat incumbent wants to win.

But the political novice—a decorated Marine combat veteran—embraces his role as the establishment party-crasher trying to unseat Senator Tammy Baldwin and give Republicans a surprise pickup in the Badger State.

“We are in an extremely good position to win,” Nicholson told me from the campaign trail on Saturday (8/11). “I would not want to trade places with either one of my opponents in the primary or the general election right now. They are the establishment. But voters know that only someone from outside the political class can bring change.”

Today (8/14), Nicholson faces State Senator Leah Vukmir in the state’s primary election. Vukmir has endorsements from House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), the Wisconsin Republican Party, and several Republican lawmakers. But recent polls show a tight race.

WHY FACEBOOK IS DOOMED TO FAIL IN CHINA

media-not-welcome-in-chinaIn July, Facebook quickly withdrew its pending subsidiary in the province of Zhejiang, China.

The social media giant, along with Google, Twitter, and Instagram (which is also owned by Facebook) is eager to reach China’s potential audience of 731 million internet users, but it has been blocked in the mainland for almost 10 years.

The subsidiary aimed to establish a new innovation hub as well as finally dip a toe in the Chinese market, but Facebook’s plan to enter China is doomed to fail.

This is not the first time Facebook has attempted to have a piece of the pie. It won’t be the last.  Facebook is still trying, but it needs to understand it will be all but impossible for it to survive in China.  Here’s why.

HALF-FULL REPORT 08/10/18

FROM 1957 TO 2018 – DEMOCRATS HAVEN’T CHANGED

FROM 1957 TO 2018 – DEMOCRATS HAVEN’T CHANGED

It’s ironic that the founder and communications director of Turning Point USA, Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens, were having breakfast at the Green Eggs Café in Philly Monday morning (8/06) when what happened to them should be a historic turning point for every normal American.

They were beset by the crazed-with-hate fascists of ANTIFA screaming at them exactly like the crazed-with-hate fascist Democrats of the 1950s Segregationist South screaming invective at young blacks going to restaurants or schools.

Over a year ago (June 9, 2017) I wrote: The Nazi Left and the Source of Trump Hatred.  It’s critical for understanding the dementia sweeping through Democrats right now, with the critical difference between the German Nazis under Hitler and the New Nazis of the American today being Auto-Nazism.

That’s just the start of an amazingly intense week (becoming the new normal now).  Intense yes, but we’ll have fun on the way.  Let’s go.

TRUMP AND TRUMAN

[This essay is in honor of the 73rd anniversary of August 6, 1945]

Tinian Island, Pacific Ocean.  It’s a small island, less than 40 square miles, a flat green dot in the vastness of Pacific blue.  Fly over it and you notice a slash across its north end of uninhabited bush, a long thin line that looks like an overgrown dirt runway.  If you didn’t know what it was, you wouldn’t give it a second glance out your airplane window.

t_runway_able_1.jpg On the ground, you see the runway isn’t dirt but tarmac and crushed limestone, abandoned with weeds sticking out of it.  Yet seventy-three years ago today, August 6, this became the most historical airstrip on earth.  This is where World War II was won.  This is Runway Able.

This is where President Truman had the courage to achieve victory over a fascist enemy because he knew the American people would vindicate it.

President Trump has that same courage.  His presidency is a gift to America from Providence.  Now the moment is arriving when Americans must prove worthy of that gift.

THE ELITES’ WAR ON NORMAL AMERICANS

deplorable-vs-deportableRecently, Politico reporter Marc Caputo was angered at rude hecklers at a Trump rally who booed beleaguered CNN correspondent Jim Acosta.

So Caputo tweeted of them, “If you put everyone’s mouths together in this video, you’d get a full set of teeth.”

I suppose Caputo meant that Trump voters intrinsically lacked either the money to fix their teeth or the knowledge of the hygiene required to take care of them or the aesthetic sensitivity of how awful their mouths looked. Or Caputo was simply rehashing the stereotypes that he had seen on reality TV shows like “Duck Dynasty” and “The Deadliest Catch.”

Or none of the above: the journalist grandee was just stupid.

That last alternative seems most likely since Caputo then escalated and called them collectively “garbage people.” What did “garbage people” mean? That by birth or training such toothless, smelly people were subhuman, like refuse?

Could he have said something similarly degrading about the attendees of an Abolish ICE! or Black Lives Matter! rally and still have his job?

THE RISE OF THE TECH FASCISTS

symbols-of-fascism-in-america-2018Fascist is a big word not to be bandied about (though it too often is these days), so let me make myself clear.

I've spent about ten minutes of my life on InfoWars and think Alex Jones is a boring blowhard of little interest except to those who want to spend their lives worrying about whether there was a second gunman on the Grassy Knoll.

Nevertheless, the group censorship of Mr. Jones, led by our friends in Cupertino, the makers of the ubiquitous iPhone -- I've had a half-dozen myself and am typing this on a MacBook -- is one of the scarier developments of our time, if not potentially the scariest.

So what Apple is doing picking on the basically irrelevant Jones is a form of corporate virtual signaling, a particularly dangerous form if you believe in the Bill of Rights.

Yes, I know they're a private company not subject to government restrictions, but they are bigger, richer, and more powerful than almost every government on the planet, maybe more, which leads me to their noxious and equally powerful comrade-in-tech-arms.... FACEBOOK.

TRUMP’S PLAN TO CHANGE THE WORLD

The President and First Lady arrive in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, May 20, 2017

The President and First Lady arrive in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, May 20, 2017

President Donald Trump has a plan to defeat radical Islamic terrorism off the battlefield, judging from the publicly available evidence.

The plan is simple, if extraordinarily ambitious: Reform Islam.

More specifically, the aim is to induce Muslim leaders to reject jihad and terrorism, and to embrace and promote a moderate practice of Islam.

Trump’s public calls for an end to Islamic terrorism made headlines, but largely unnoticed has been a larger and concerted plan to reform Islam by eliminating the root cause of such violence: the extremist ideology that fuels jihad.

The president called upon Muslim leaders to fundamentally reform Islam by rejecting terrorism and global jihad during his landmark speech in the Saudi capital of Riyadh on May 21, 2017.

“There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it,” the president insisted.  There are clear signs he is succeeding.  Here’s how.

PUTTING AMERICANS FIRST

pastor-brunson-trump-tweetWhen the Wicked Witch meets Dorothy in “The Wizard of Oz,” she demands the ruby red slippers the Kansas farm girl is wearing.  The Good Witch advises Dorothy otherwise. “Their magic must be very powerful or she wouldn’t want them so badly,” she says.

The Magnitsky Act is something like those ruby red slippers.

Originally passed by Congress in 2012 and named for the Russian accountant found dead in his jail cell after exposing fraud involving Russian officials, it authorized the president to block travel visas and freeze bank accounts of individual Russians deemed guilty of human-rights abuses.

In 2016 it was expanded so it could be applied to other human-rights abusers anywhere in the world. We know its power the same way we know about the power of Dorothy’s red slippers: The bad guys obsess about it.

Like Turkish Dictator Recip Erdogan, who’s feeling the heat of President’s Trump’s Americans First foreign policy of using the Magnitsky Act to force the freeing of Pastor Brunson.
