spy-gateWhat we’ve learned in the last few weeks about the conspiracy to frame President Trump should make us rethink much of what we thought we knew about it before.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein offered to wear a wire to a meeting at the White House to gather information that could be used to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office, the New York Times “reported” Sept. 21.

The story was based on a memo written by disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

The “Rosenstein-McCabe feud dates back to angry standoff in front of Mueller,” said this Washington Post story Oct. 10.

The key takeaway from the WaPo article is that McCabe perceived Rosenstein as a threat,” noted ThunderStrzok.

Rosenstein won. Which is good, because McCabe is a very bad guy.  Spygate is being unlocked.  Here’s how.



dem-party-mascotWhat has transformed the Democrat party into an anguished progressive movement that incorporates the tactics of the street, embraces maenadism, reverts to Sixties carnival barking, and is radicalized by a new young socialist movement?

Even party chairman Tom Perez concedes that there are “no moderate Democrats left,” and lately the rantings of Cory Booker, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez confirm that diagnosis.

How did it get this way?  Let’s start with Obama, who started who started being worshipped as the Democrat Savior and has now become the Fallen God.  It goes downhill from there.



feminists-need-to-grow-upWhy can’t women stop buying the Marxist narrative?

If you’ve read this and you’re going “uh, what?” because you’re a woman and not Marxist, don’t worry. What I’m doing is echoing a WaPo editorial by Victoria Bissell Brown (a retired Grinnell College history professor) last Friday (10/12) who starts her insanely stupid article by asking:

Why can’t men organize to change themselves?

Why, Vicky, (yeah, I’m fairly sure you don’t want me to call you Vicky, but since you’re functioning at about a six-year-old level, that’s the best you deserve) that’s an amazing question, that probably made the Post editors drool at your amazingness.

It’s almost as good as “why can’t you take a valium like a normal human being, and stop being crazy?” which is what your editorial made me ask.

Her article starts with a confession of spousal abuse:



communism-is-not-loveChina has been brandishing its might and the world is taking notice. Not with military exercises, cyber attacks, or by harassing vessels in international waters.

China has been doing these things, of course, but its latest show of force comes straight from its heart: displays of ultra-nationalism by its diplomats indulging in chauvinistic and all-too-official bullying tirades..

As China’s economy and military might have grown, Chinese leaders have begun to expect obeisance from other powers, both great and especially small.

In 2010, then-Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi hinted at this in Hanoi when he harangued the assembled representatives of ASEAN with his admonition that “China is a big country and other countries are small countries, and that’s just a fact.”  Since then the bullying and arrogance has gotten so much worse.



mad-demsJerusalem, Israel.  We’re in the middle of Hidden Holy Land II with a wonderful group of TTPers.  It’s dawn here, meaning it’s just past midnight in DC, and still yesterday in California.  By the time I wrap this up, Friday in America will have barely begun, so if any October Surprise happens today, it will have go unmentioned here.

It is extraordinary to be here at one of the great crossroads of history on the eve of America’s crossroad of history just 25 days from today.  First however, let’s reflect on what a momentous week this has been in the history of Western Civilization.  In particular, yesterday and today.

Yesterday, October 11, we celebrated the 1,286th anniversary of the Battle of Tours in 732 AD, when Charles Martel (686-741), forever known as The Hammer, and his 30,000 Christian soldiers crushed an invading horde of 200,000 Moslem Jihadis in what is now central France.

Today, October 12, is for celebrating the 526th anniversary of Columbus’ discovery of America, for on this day in 1492, the Great Admiral landed on Guanahani (now known as San Salvador or Watlings) island in the Bahamas.

But we’re just getting started.  We’ll go from when the first human culture began ca. 40,000 years ago to where Abraham in buried to why Dems have become as demented as Palestinian terrorists to a genius pro-Trump rapper in the White House yesterday.  Let’s go.



trump-fist-pumpThroughout the year, we have seen Democrats across the country uniting around a new legislative proposal that would end Medicare as we know it and take away benefits that seniors have paid for their entire lives.

Dishonestly called “Medicare for All,” the Democrat proposal would establish a government-run, single-payer health care system that eliminates all private and employer-based health care plans and would cost an astonishing $32.6 trillion during its first 10 years.

If Democrats win control of Congress this November, we will come dangerously closer to socialism in America. Government-run health care is just the beginning. Democrats are also pushing massive government control of education, private-sector businesses and other major sectors of the U.S. economy.

Indeed, the Democrats' commitment to government-run health care is all the more menacing to our seniors and our economy when paired with some Democrats' absolute commitment to end enforcement of our immigration laws by abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

That means millions more would cross our borders illegally and take advantage of health care paid for by American taxpayers.

Today’s Democrat Party is for open-borders socialism. This radical agenda would destroy American prosperity. We must win this.



scary-thingsNever have I felt more ashamed of my sex than in the last two weeks watching hysterical harridans trashing tradition, decorum, and common decency.

The Kavanaugh confirmation circus has brought out the worst of womankind -- woman who forced themselves, writhing with hatred and ignorance, into our living rooms and smart devices uninvited and without consent.

I've never felt so assaulted in my life than after watching the fiendish, frenzied temper tantrums of a thousand deranged females during what is supposed to be tedious, uneventful Senate procedure to seat a Supreme Court justice.

These screeching gorgons have bigger problems than Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. Their performance during this uproarious time has called into serious question their fitness to even participate in any serious matter of state.

It embarrasses me deeply that these shrieking shrews identify as "women" and are allowed to speak for all of us without question. The only women in America whose existence is continually and relentlessly denied are conservative women.




Also Stomped On: Never Trumpers, #MeToo, the Media and more

When the Christine Ford saga finally ended with the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, a lot of truth had distilled out, along with the evaporation of prior pretensions and misconceptions.  Here are the Kavanaugh Casualties.

The Left

The hearing confirmed that the traditional JFK/Hubert Humphrey Democrat party, as once envisioned by a Bill Clinton, Gary Hart, or Jim Webb, is long kaput.

In its place is being birthed a hard-left progressive movement that absorbs the ideologies and methodologies of its base and that now incorporates all sorts, from Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist hipsters to Black Lives Matters, Antifa, and Occupy Wall Street protestors.

Any means is deemed permissible to enact visions of social justice, given legislative and executive power is lost for now — and as if proverbially ordinary Americans who watched the televised circus might applaud the performers.

The applause is the sound of one hand clapping.



supreme-justice-kavanaughBrett Kavanaugh was sworn in as the newest justice on the U.S. Supreme Court on Saturday (10/06), and began hearing oral arguments on yesterday (10/09), after the Court came back from its Columbus Day holiday.

Much has been said about the unfair and downright nasty tactics used by some Democrat Senators and their allies during Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation battle.

But the reason they resorted to these tactics is because the federal courts have become so important in their quest to change America into their version of a Progressive Utopia.  For many decades, liberals have been using the federal courts to implement the changes they have been unable to achieve through Congress and state legislatures.

When they cannot convince voters and legislators, they have resorted to federal judges to ignore the law and ignore the Constitution and implement their social policies by judicial fiat.  With Justice Kavanaugh bringing a 5-4 conservative majority to SCOTUS, these days promise to be over for liberals and the left.



china-flagsInevitably as China becomes more powerful and influential in international relations, Beijing will fundamentally change the international system created by the United States and the Cold War.

The key question for international politics is what kind of world does China seek to create by 2049 — the centenary of the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Will China sustain the present liberal system or forge another anchored on its ambitions, culture, and desires? Millennia of Chinese history strongly suggests the latter.

In this essay, we illuminate China’s model of global governance and touch upon its derivative economic and political features. Conceiving of what type of world China will create is significant for three reasons.

First, it is critical for the United States to understand so that the full scope of China’s strategic ambitions and direction may be understood.

Second, U.S. decision-makers should expect that the world China would like to create by 2049 will be fundamentally different. The economic order will be a curious mix of hyper-capitalism and neomercantilism. The political order will be authoritarian.

Third, understanding China’s ambition and grand strategic objectives allows the United States to develop policies and undertake measures to thwart them.
