War and Pacifism

And Rumors of Pacifism

(From our Archives, Apr. 2006)

Francis Schaefer: "The Bible is clear here. I am to love my neighbor as myself, in the manner needed, in a practical way, in the midst of the fallen world, at my particular point of history. This is why I am not a pacifist. Pacifism in this poor world in which we live - this lost world - means that we desert the people who need our greatest help."

Michael Kelly (Sept. 26, 2001):

"Pacifists are not serious people, although they devoutly believe they are, and their arguments are not being taken seriously at the moment. Yet it is worth taking seriously, and in advance of need, the pacifists and their appeal.

It is worth it, first of all, because the idea of peace is inherently attractive; and the more war there is, the more attractive the idea becomes. Second, it is worth it because the reactionary left-liberal crowd in America and in Europe has already staked out its ground here: What happened to America is America's fault, the fruits of foolish arrogance and greedy imperialism, racism, colonialism, etc., etc. From this rises an argument that the resulting war is also an exercise in arrogance and imperialism, etc., and not deserving of support. This argument will be made with greater fearlessness as the first memories of the 7,000 murdered recede. Third, it is worth it because the American foreign policy establishment has all the heart for war of a titmouse, and not one of your braver titmice. The first faint, let-us-be-reasonable bleats can even now be heard: Yes, we must do something, but is an escalation of aggression really the right thing? Mightn't it just make matters ever so much worse?

Pacifists see themselves as obviously on the side of a higher morality, and there is a surface appeal to this notion, even for those who dismiss pacifism as hopelessly naive. The pacifists' argument is rooted entirely in this appeal: Two wrongs don't make a right; violence only begets more violence. ...

In 1942 George Orwell wrote this, in Partisan Review, of Great Britain's pacifists:

"Pacifism is objectively pro-Fascist. This is elementary common sense. If you hamper the war effort of one side you automatically help out that of the other. Nor is there any real way of remaining outside such a war as the present one. In practice, 'he that is not with me is against me.'"

England's pacifists howled, but Orwell's logic was implacable. The Nazis wished the British to not fight. If the British did not fight, the Nazis would conquer Britain. The British pacifists also wished the British to not fight. The British pacifists, therefore, were on the side of a Nazi victory over Britain. They were objectively pro-Fascist.

An essentially identical logic obtains now. Organized terrorist groups have attacked America. These groups wish the Americans to not fight. The American pacifists wish the Americans to not fight. If the Americans do not fight, the terrorists will attack America again. And now we know such attacks can kill many thousands of Americans. The American pacifists, therefore, are on the side of future mass murders of Americans. They are objectively pro-terrorist. ... That is the pacifists' position, and it is evil."......

Orwell recanted in 1944 as the conflict's outlook improved:
"I draw attention to one very widespread controversial habit – disregard of an opponent’s motives. The key-word here is 'objectively'. We are told that it is only people's objective actions that matter, and their subjective feelings are of no importance. Thus pacifists, by obstructing the war effort, are 'objectively' aiding the Nazis; and therefore the fact that they may be personally hostile to Fascism is irrelevant. I have been guilty of saying this myself more than once.

This is not only dishonest; it also carries a severe penalty with it. If you disregard people's motives, it becomes much harder to foresee their actions. For there are occasions when even the most misguided person can see the results of what he is doing. Here is a crude but quite possible illustration. A pacifist is working in some job which gives him access to important military information, and is approached by a German secret agent. In those circumstances his subjective feelings do make a difference. If he is subjectively pro-Nazi he will sell his country, and if he isn't, he won't." 
[Ed. Note: "If you disregard people's motives, it becomes much harder to foresee their actions." Isn't that policy now? Obama has ordered disregard of enemy motive so we will not foresee enemy action; that is his feckful motive.]
G.K. Chesterton:

"The cheapest and most childish of all the taunts of the Pacifists is, I think, the sneer at belligerents for appealing to the God of Battles. It is ludicrously illogical, for we obviously have no right to kill for victory save when we have a right to pray for it. If a war is not a holy war, it is an unholy one--a massacre."

"I cannot see how we can literally end War unless we can end Will. I cannot think that war will ever be utterly impossible; and I say so not because I am what these people call a militarist, but rather because I am a revolutionist. Absolutely to forbid fighting is to forbid what our fathers called 'the sacred right of insurrection'. Against some decisions no self-respecting men can be prevented from appealing to fortune and to death."

"...war, like weather, cannot in itself be either criminal or saintly; and war as an action undertaken by certain persons may be either one or the other. Only in a state of fallen intelligence akin to fetish-worship could [we] ever have dropped into the habit of talking about the 'wickedness of war'."

"...that all war is physically frightful is obvious; but if that were a moral verdict, there would be no difference between a torturer and a surgeon."

From The American Chesterton Society:

"Throughout his career, Chesterton was a vigorous enemy of pacifism. What he did believe in was the right, or the duty rather, of self-defense and the defense of others.

Chesterton was also a vigorous enemy of militarism. Both ideas, he argued, were really a single idea -- that the strong must not be resisted. The militarist, he said, uses this idea aggressively as a conqueror, as a bully. The pacifist uses the idea passively by acquiescing to the conqueror and permitting himself and others around him to be bullied. Of the two, Chesterton thought the pacifist far less admirable. In fact, the pacifist, for him, was "the last and least excusable on the list of the enemies of society."

"They preach that if you see a man flogging a woman to death you must not hit him. I would much sooner let a leper come near a little boy than a man who preached such a thing."

This should not be understood as a lust for fighting. "The horror of war," Chesterton wrote, "is the sentiment of a Christian and even of a saint." But in refusing to strike any blow, pacifists announce their readiness to surrender the higher ideals of "liberty, self-government, justice, and religion.""

Margaret Thatcher:

"My statement yesterday explained the Government's decision to support the United States military action, taken in self-defence, against terrorist targets in Libya.

Of course, when we took our decision we were aware of the wider issues and of people's fears. Terrorism attacks free societies and plays on those fears. If those tactics succeed, terrorism saps the will of free peoples to resist.

We have heard some of those arguments in this country: "Don't associate ourselves with the United States," some say; "Don't support them in fighting back; we may expose ourselves to more attacks," say others.

Terrorism has to be defeated; it cannot be tolerated or side-stepped. When other ways and other methods have failed—I am the first to wish that they had succeeded—it is right that the terrorist should know that firm steps will be taken to deter him from attacking either other peoples or his own people who have taken refuge in countries that are free. [...]

The United States' action was conducted against five specific targets directly connected with terrorism. It will, of course, be for the United States Government to publish their assessment of the results. However, we now know that there were a number of civilian casualties, some of them children. It is reported that they included members of Colonel Gaddafi's own family.

The casualties are, of course, a matter of great sorrow. We also remember with sadness all those men, women and children who have lost their lives as a result of terrorist acts over the years—so many of them performed at the Libyan Government's behest. [...]

Mr. Eric S. Heffer (Liverpool, Walton): "The right hon. Lady referred to the killing of innocent children and then to terrorist attacks on innocent people in various parts of the world. I think that she and I may have been brought up in the same Christian tradition. Does she remember that two wrongs do not make a right?"

The Prime Minister: Had the hon. Gentleman been listening, he would have realised that I was trying to tackle that argument in part, when I said that terrorism thrives on a free society. The terrorist uses the feelings in a free society to sap the will of civilisation to resist. If the terrorist succeeds, he has won and the whole of free society has lost. [...]

Indeed, one has to ask whether it has not been the failure to act in self-defence that has encouraged state-sponsored terrorism. Firm and decisive action may make those who continue to practise terrorism as a policy think again. [...]

The United States is our greatest ally. It is the foundation of the Alliance which has preserved our security and peace for more than a generation. In defence of liberty, our liberty as well as its own, the United States maintains in Western Europe 330,000 service men. That is more than the whole of Britain's regular forces. The United States gave us unstinting help when we needed it in the South Atlantic four years ago.

The growing threat of international terrorism is not directed solely at the United States. We in the United Kingdom have also long been in the front line. To overcome the threat is in the vital interests of all countries founded upon freedom and the rule of law.

Terrorism exploits the natural reluctance of a free society to defend itself, in the last resort, with arms. Terrorism thrives on appeasement. Of course we shall continue to make every effort to defeat it by political means. But in this case that was not enough. The time had come for action. The United States took it. Its decision was justified, and, as friends and allies, we support it."...........

[Ed. Note: Gaddafi later surrendered to George W. Bush after seeing Hussein's fate. Hillary decided to kill him anyway for her first campaign commercial. When Libya became the place where ISIS goes for Spring Break, that commercial was never filmed.]

Teddy Roosevelt:

"In the next place, the good man should be both a strong and a brave man; that is, he should be able to fight, he should be able to serve his country as a soldier, if the need arises. There are well-meaning philosophers who declaim against the unrighteousness of war. They are right only if they lay all their emphasis upon the unrighteousness. War is a dreadful thing, and unjust war is a crime against humanity. But it is such a crime because it is unjust, not because it is war. The choice must ever be in favor of righteousness, and this whether the alternative be peace or whether the alternative be war. The question must not be merely, Is there to be peace or war? The question must be, Is the right to prevail? Are the great laws of righteousness once more to be fulfilled? And the answer from a strong and virile people must be, "Yes," whatever the cost. Every honorable effort should always be made to avoid war, just as every honorable effort should always be made by the individual in private life to keep out of a brawl, to keep out of trouble; but no self-respecting individual, no self-respecting nation, can or ought to submit to wrong."

Todd Beamer:

"Let's roll."

Eunuch Horn the Unicorn Sez: "All Hail His Majesty Grant Strobl!!!"

 "Say It...Or Else!" The LGBTaliban Alliance: StrongerTogether?

"Even I, Eunuch Horn the Unicorn cannot read this moronic chart, boys and girls whatevs!"
"You can has reading my chart, little purple freak! Is no such thing as unicorns in my Afghanistan!
Never trust dinosaur in lavender shirt...wait--I have lavender shirt...No!...Arrrrgh!"
HEATSTREET: University of Michigan Professors Will Face Disciplinary Action for Ignoring ‘Preferred Pronouns’

"[I]f professors accidentally use the wrong pronoun, “you can acknowledge that you made a mistake and use the correct pronoun next time,” said the university’s provost...
University spokesman woman neither both hybrid unicorn: “If there were a persistent pattern of ignoring a student’s preference, we would address that as a performance matter.”
The decision comes after a University of Michigan junior founded the Wolverines for Preferred Pronouns Initiative...The petition argued that it is “a experience for individuals who constantly have to inform or correct professors of their identity.” Allowing students to specify their own preferred pronouns “will prevent the erasure of nonbinary individuals who use neopronouns or they/them pronouns,” it said.".............

"it" said?

Maybe that petition doesn't want to be called "it". That's very dehumanizing for a petition, you know. On behalf of mentally and emotionally drained petitions everywhere, I demand a humiliating and very public recantation by the It-o-phobes!

Here, His Majesty Grant Stobl cancels both parties' conventions and decrees Himself "Ruler of Free-ish World and also California". So let it be written, so let it be executively-ordered.
The College Fix: As a result of this new policy, professors are now expected to call students by their personally designated pronoun, even if it has no basis in their biological sex. ..."Designated pronouns will automatically populate on all class rosters accessed through Wolverine Access. Rosters pulled from other systems will not have designated pronouns listed,” the university states.
With that, Grant Strobl, a conservative student at the University of Michigan and chairman of the Young Americans for Freedom Board of Governors, decided to change his preferred pronoun to “His Majesty” — in an attempt to make the point that this policy has no basis in reality....“I have no problem with students asking to be identified a certain way, almost like someone named Richard who would like to be called Dick. It is respectful to make a reasonable effort to refer to students in the way that they prefer.”
He does have a problem when the university institutionalizes the use of pronouns that are completely arbitrary and may possibly sanction people for referring to someone different than their preference. ...“So, I henceforth shall be referred to as: His Majesty, Grant Strobl. I encourage all U-M students to go onto Wolverine Access, and insert the identity of their dreams.”.....

In that spirit, I have decided that I will now be addressed as "His Supreme Leader".

That way, the Gender-and-Otherwise-Confused Obama won't know if he's talking about himself, his Ayatollah or me.

"Mr. President, it says here His Supreme Leader requires a pepperoni pizza and some beer."
"I didn't order a pizza, Toadsworth."
"Not you, sir..."
"Oh--you'd think the Ayatollah could order his own pie with the stack of cash I just sent. Still, His wish is my command--get me the number for the Tehran Pizza Hut."
"No, Mr. President--not that Supreme Leader either. 'His Supreme Leader' is a right-wing internet blogger."
"Let me know when we've completed transferring control of the Internet to the world's dictators, Toadsworth."
"Dictators won't gain control the Internet--it says so right here in your last press release."
"Umm...sure, sure, right you are Toadsworth. Still, let me know."
"Yes, sir."
"What's that, Toady...?"
"Yes, Your Supreme Leader."
"That's better."

Speaking of confusementation, the real question is how long the Democrats are going to get away with coddling both the Radical Gender Community and the Radical Islamist Community, whose values are in direct conflict: “It went from being a gay vigil [for Orlando] to being a vigil for Islam.”

Democrats were able to keep Jesse Jackson and Hillary's Klan mentor Robert Byrd together for years, but that was a different Paleozoic Era.

"What was that scary flash of light, Bronto-Bill?"
"It was nothing, Hilla-saurus--just some meteor from Galaxy Trump.
Keep on feeding as usual, Hill--we're almost bog-grass billionaires by now!"
Lefties have supported both groups since they are both destructive to American tradition and interests, but they may not be able to reconcile them much longer. For instance, you have Black Lives cop-hater Democrats shutting down LGBT-Democrats' parades, while Hillary is losing cop unions.
Elsewhere, Radical Feminist-Democrats and their cats, once the darlings of the Left, are losing ground to other Democrat interest groups--some of these women actually object to having Democrat men naked in their facilities with schoolgirls or to being molested by Democrat immigrants--and their TV networks.
Pat Paulsen for President: "Some of these gals are just picky, picky, picky. What could possibly go wrong
with letting in lots of unvetted Mid-East immigrants, Bobby?"
Huma Abedin is almost a poster child of those conflicts; married to a Democrat Jewish man who can't afford pants, she's a politically-empowered, liberated Democrat woman of the world by day, nip-and-tuck editor of her mom's "Female Circumcision Quarterly" by night.
He's been on camera so many times, he deserves an Oscar--
an Oscar Mayor Weiner!
And the intra-Democrat conflict between Islamo-symps and LGBTs was on full display at Hillary's recent Florida rally--about one one-hundredth the size of a Trump rally, more like a coffee klatch, really--but you can almost hear her aides arguing backstage:

"I say we give Taliban Dad a seat of honor behind Hillary."
"But his kid just slaughtered dozens of gay people a month ago and he may have been in on it."
"But he's the real victim here, of the Racist Backlash That Never Seems To Happen!"
"But he taught his son to hate!"
"Only Republicans hate. Terrorists are just mentally-ill. If only there was more federal funding..."
"But his son was a gun-owner!"
"Yes, but they're immigrants--and we're for a borderless world."
"But he beats his wives!"
"We're also for Marriage Equality."
"Well so were the people at the nightclub--until his son shot them!"
"Yes, but he shot them in a nurturing, inclusive and diverse way."
"Look, there's only one way to settle this: let's call the White House. (*dials phone*)
"Okay...yes, sir...thank you, sir." (*hangs up*)
"Well, that settles it; His Supreme Leader says we must let Taliban Dad sit behind Hillary."
"Which 'Supreme Leader'--the President, the Ayatollah or the right-wing Internet blogger?"
"The one who ordered the pepperoni and Bud Light."

Eunuch Horn the Ginned-up Gender Unicorn Sez: "I wantz to sitz behindz Hillary!"

Taliban Dad Sez: "I also wants sits behind Hillary!"

Don't fight, boys--and--um, unicorns; this Party is big enough for all of us!"

"Can I being called 'His Supreme Leader', too?"
No, you can't. By Order of His Supreme Leader.

And why hasn't this guy been arrested yet? He was the impresario who staged the off-off-Broadway production of "Omar, Get Your Gun". Gasbag Democrats can detect the slightest hint of wrongdoing, fraud and criminality by Wells Fargo execs--but not by other Democrats, such as bribery and obstruction by Hillary or terror support by Taliban Dad.

Moral midgets--must be yet another Democrat interest group.

JASTA or Jizya? Jefferson vs. the Brown-Eyed Ransom Man: Showdown on the Shores of Tripoli

Over-Ridden Veto Nails Fungus!

"Flying across the desert in a TWA
I saw a mullah walking across the sand
He's been a-walkin' thirty miles en route to get paid
money from a brown eyed Ransom man
His Jizya-payer was a brown eyed Ransom man!"
"Picture to yourself your Brother Citizens or Unfortunate Countrymen in the Algerian State Prisons  or Damned Castille, starved 2/3rds and Naked...Once a Citizen of the United States of America, but at present, the Most Miserable Slave in Algiers."--USS Dauphin Capt. Richard O'Brian, Diary, Feb. 19, 1790

Now picture your Brother Citizen trapped in an armored vehicle struck by an Iranian IED. Or your Unfortunate Countrymen trapped in an airplane or in a burning skyscraper by a Saudi-funded cabal of conspirators. That's why Obama had to eat his JASTA veto.

The Koran demands conflict with the infidels until they pay the mandated humiliating Jizya Tax. And the Left loves taxes, man dates and tax mandates--and humiliating America. Our ships were taken hostage by the Barbary Pirates, yes--but also by the Leftist Revolutionary France.

In Obama's Mental Caliphate, Jizya money is supposed to flow from America the Guilty to Islamic regimes--not the other way around. That's why he opposes the bill, not because Americans might be sued.
"They wanted Three Hundred Million cash--but I held out for Four!"
Yes, there is a case that if this standard were applied to America, it might open up American troops, diplomats and taxpayers to lawsuits. But to Obama, that's a feature, not a bug. A wonderful prospect--but not at the price of Americans being able to sue Islamic regimes. The Jizya must flow one way only.

A Dhimmi is a second or third-class citizen. For example, anyone not named "Clinton".
That's why, for example, we spent $770m to renovate mosques in Egypt, Cypress and Mali--to include computers and internet (what could possibly go wrong?). It's not a goodwill gesture--it's Jizya.

Compare Obama's treatment of 9/11 victims to his tender solicitude for Iran. There was no court judgment ordering us to pay Iran. Obama was acting as Iran's lawyer and pronounced America guilty and paid them out of the Judgment Fund--and he was the judge. Also jury, plaintiff's counsel and ransom bagman.

The Ayatollah let bin Laden operate freely out of Iran. They made the IEDs in Iraq, maiming and murdering hundreds of Americans. They bombed the Marine Barracks in Beirut and Khobar Towers. What price for the lives of those "Brother Citizens or Unfortunate Countrymen"?

Even the flowers and upkeep at Arlington alone are expensive. The other costs staggering; The PTSD counseling. The prosthetics. The life-long care. Is Obama counterclaiming for all those damages?  Hell no. America had it coming, he judges. The price for those lives? Zero. In fact, less than zero. "So sorry, Mr. Mullah--we'll pay you for your trouble," says Barry the Bagman.
Submission Accomplished: "On second thought, Jengis Khan was a great prophet,
a wonderful family man and, I'm told, a pretty decent scratch bowler. What is this "bowling", anyway?"
Why are Obama and His Supreme Leader so desperate to stop this bill? Guess what; now Americans can sue Iran, too! 

Obama is fond of saying how Islam has been with us since our beginnings. How right he is:

Hitch: "One cannot get around what Jefferson heard when he went with John Adams to wait upon Tripoli’s ambassador to London in March 1785. When they inquired by what right the Barbary states preyed upon American shipping, enslaving both crews and passengers, America’s two foremost envoys were informed that “it was written in the Koran, that all Nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon whoever they could find and to make Slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

Jefferson decided from that moment on that he would make war upon the Barbary kingdoms as soon as he commanded American forces. ...

A complete disaster—Tripoli’s capture of the new U.S. frigate Philadelphia—became a sort of triumph, thanks to Edward Preble and Stephen Decatur, who mounted a daring raid on Tripoli’s harbor and blew up the captured ship, while inflicting heavy damage on the city’s defenses. ..Francis Scott Key composed a patriotic song to mark the occasion..."from the shores of Tripoli"...brushed up and revised a little for the War of 1812, and set to the same music, it has enjoyed considerable success since. [Kipling:]

“We never pay any-one Dane-geld,
No matter how trifling the cost;
For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
And the nation that plays it is lost!”

It may be fortunate that the United States had to pass this test, and imbibe this lesson, so early in its life as a nation."...................

 "Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense
that goes by the name of patriotism - how passionately I hate them!" 
Real patriots despise false patriotism, but they toast the true:
"Our country! In her intercourse with foreign nations, may she always be in the right;
 but our country, right or wrong!"--Commodore Stephen Decatur
The Scripture teaches that there are no second-class people. And Jesus Christ already paid all our debt if we believe in Him. The Constitution echoes this, as Rev. King knew well.

No Sharia Law. The Constitution instead.
No Dhimmitude. Equal Protection here.
No Taqiyya, or "holy" subterfuge. Truth only.
No Jizya. Freedom of Conscience is our creed.

JASTA stops Jizya. Our attorney will be in touch:
"Money is their God and Mahomet is their prophet."--Capt. Richard O'Brian

If "Paying Taxes = Patriotism", Then Why Did Hillary Deduct Bill's Used Skivvies?

No Taxation Without Fumigation!
Sen. Hanes Herway of the Big House Un-American Underwear Activites Taxation Committee:
"If the taxpayer's passive activity gross income from significant participation passive activities (within the meaning of section 1.4692T(f)(2) through (4)) exceeds the taxpayer's passive activity deductions from such activities for the taxable year, such activities shall be treated, solely for purposes of applying this paragraph (f)(2)(i) for the taxable year, as a single activity that does not have a loss for such taxable year."
(actual foreign gobbledygook good government at work!)
If "Paying Taxes = Patriotism" like Hillary says, then why did she donate Bill's used underwear as a tax deduction? Not to mention the public health implications.

Was it unpatriotic? Or merely unsanitary? Or evidence-tampering?

Why does Bill Clinton wear underwear? To keep his ankles warm.
I said 'ankles', not 'Skankles'.
Trump obeyed the law, the tax laws that Hillary and her Senate pals passed, whereas she broke national security and public corruption laws--laws that she and her gasbag gangsters also passed. She's both behind the law--and Above the Law!

Again, she's slamming Trump for obeying the law. She could have changed the tax laws if she didn't want Donald to obey them--but she didn't get that job done, either.

The Clintons also took an "unpatriotic" charity deduction for the million dollars they gave to their favorite charity--themselves.

Giving money to their own Bribe Factory Foundation isn't charity; it's money laundering.

And there's a phrase for bunco "charities" that only give 5% away: "RICO target".

Dancing for the cameras on the Santa Monica Damage Control Beach:
"Give me those skivvies, Buster."
"Wow! Sure, honey. I thought..."
"Don't get excited, Romeo--I can get $3.50 for those on April 15th."
If Billionaire Hillary is really that concerned about government revenues, she should give the US Treasury the $145 million she and her husband skimmed from all the deals surrounding her sale of our uranium to Putin. And that's just one chapter in a very long book.

Atom Auntie, $tate Department's Top Uranium $ales-Gal:
"What could be more patriotic than paying taxes and selling Russia our uranium supply?"
Handing somebody Bill Clinton's underpants for a tax break is more Un-American than the Donald not wanting to send more money down the Federal Rat-hole. For example, the $6 Billion Dollar Rat-hole at Hillary's State Department.

I'm sure that money will $how up any day now--in the Caymans.

In fairness though, Bill didn't wear his underpants much anyway.

UPDATE: H & R Rodham also claimed a tax deduction for the costs of her illegal server. Ace: "So you can't blame Hillary for her illegal email server-- you paid for it, after all.".......

Hillary will also say we paid for Pagliano's false statements to Martha Stewart's FBI, his Official Secrets Act violations, hiding behind the Fifth Amendment and obstruction of justice--just like she says the Russians never thought about hacking her emails until Donald made a joke about it.

Shouldn't those tax savings go to the families of the spies she got killed by her negligence? Or were their depreciated lives just another business expense necessary to keep her Bribery emails secret?

And because it's the Clintons, even those write-offs were sketchy: "Those deductions can only be taken for equipment used for in-home business expenses—destroying Hillary Clinton's assertion that her private server was only for "personal emails."

Like Hillary scolded Donald, "That's less money for veterans, baby ducks, Solyndra and Michelle Obama shopping sprees." With the money she greedily kept for herself, we could have easily put a entire Syrian terror cell through the eighth grade.

Crooked Hillary And ClintonStench: The Only Democrat Fired in Watergate, Still Crooked After All These Years --45, To Be Exact

Honey, I Shrunk My Resume

"You hosers are telling me all I had to do was BleachBit my tapes?"
TRUMP: "And, Hillary, I'd just ask you this. You've been doing this for 30 years. Why are you just thinking about these solutions right now? For 30 years, you've been doing it, and now you're just starting to think of solutions.
CLINTON: Well, actually...
TRUMP: I will bring -- excuse me. I will bring back jobs. You can't bring back jobs.
CLINTON: Well, actually, I have thought about this quite a bit.
TRUMP: Yeah, for 30 years.
CLINTON: And I have -- well, not quite that long." ................. 
No--even longer. And she can't even bring back her own job, the one Ted Kennedy got for her.
Hillary has been involved in American public life since 1971, not just 1993.

After stalking writing many, many fan letters to Communist-y Organizer Saul Alinsky while at college and even after graduating law school, Hillary wanted to "transform America" while Barack Obama was still playing with his G.I. Josef bureaucratic inaction figures.

Dear Saul,

When is that new book ["Rules for Radicals"] coming out — or has it come and I somehow missed the fulfillment of Revelation? I have just had my one-thousandth conversation about "Reveille for Radicals" and need some new material to throw at people."--1971 letter to 1917

“If the ideals Alinsky espouses were actualized, the result would be social revolution.”--Her Thesis, Her Radiant Cattle Futures

Mr. Kurtz: "Hillary has never abandoned her early leftist inclinations. She has merely done her best to suppress the evidence of her political past, from barring public access to her thesis on Alinsky during her time in the White House, to papering over the significance of her internship at [the Communist Law Firm of] Treuhaft, Walker, and Bernstein, to pretending that she turned away from Alinsky after her undergraduate years, when in fact she brought his methods and outlook into the heart of her political work. Her strategic preference for polarization and targeting enemies is well documented from her time in the White House...Not only have Hillary’s deepest sympathies always been on the left, but the newly ideologized Democratic party [would] pressure a President Hillary Clinton to be what she has always wanted to be. With Obamacare and much else besides, the legal and bureaucratic groundwork has already been laid for a leftist transformation of America. It is naïve to believe that Hillary would roll any of this back. On the contrary, as president she would finish the job Obama started. A Hillary presidency [would be] destined to be Obama’s third term. Two Alinskyite presidents in a row? Hillary said it best: “The result would be a social revolution.”.........

Or a counter-revolution.

Miss Rodham went on to work as a young lawyer on the House Watergate Committee, a job Ted Kennedy got her. What did they think of her?
"She was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality. Hillary Clinton is ethically unfit to be either a senator or president — and if she were to become president, the last vestiges of the traditional moral authority of the party of Roosevelt, Truman and Johnson will be destroyed.”--Democrat Jerry Zeifman, Counsel and Chief of Staff of the House Judiciary Committee

"Specifically, Zeifman contends that Rodham and others wanted Richard Nixon to remain in office to bolster the chances of Sen. Ted Kennedy or another Democrat being elected president. ...Rodham [was]  trying to gain enough votes on the Judiciary Committee to change House rules and deny counsel to Nixon.
In order to pull this off, Zeifman said that Rodham wrote a fraudulent legal brief, and confiscated public documents. After the Nixon impeachment investigation was finished, Zeifman fired Rodham and said he refused to give her a letter of recommendation. Zeifman said he regrets not reporting Rodham to the appropriate bar association." ..........
We all regret it, sir. 
"See--I told you those Kennedys played dirty, too."
Andy McCarthy on ServerGate:
"Hillary couldn’t be proven guilty without proving the president guilty as well. ...
“How is this not classified?” She recovered quickly enough, though. The FBI records that the next thing Abedin did, after “express[ing] her amazement at the president’s use of a pseudonym,” was to “ask if she could have a copy of the email.” Abedin knew an insurance policy when she saw one. If Obama himself had been e-mailing over a non-government, non-secure system, then everyone else who had been doing it had a get-out-of-jail-free card. ...
Obama not only engaged in the same type of misconduct Clinton did; he engaged in it with Clinton." .....

And then Obama repeatedly lied through his teeth to the public, both about his knowledge and participation in Hillary's private server and about the damage done to our national security by leaving our top secrets laying around on an Internet park bench. How many of our spies have to die for Hillary's Nixon-esque paranoia and Kremlin Gremlin omerta-fetish?
"Hillary made me do it!"

In other words, ClintonStench is so foul, that it made an already-corrupt Obama even more corrupt, if that's possible--and it evidently was.

"Even I need a bath."

Maybe it's not fair to ask James Comey to investigate both the nominee and the sitting president. That's a tall order. But that's the job, isn't it? Jerry Zeifman stood up to Hillary's criminality, both when she was still a nobody, and later when she was seeking high office.

If people don't actively stand up to the ClintonStench, it eventually corrupts them, too, just like any other Organized Crime family. Now Comey's reputation is shredded, just one more piece of tattered collateral damage left twisting slowly in the wind, another casual lies-casualty in the long and sordid "Above the Law"-annals of Clinton, Inc.

The FBI once took on Nixon. Ask Crooked Hillary--she was there..until she joined the Liars' Club of Corrupt Lawyers Fired in the Watergate Scandal: President Richard Nixon, Attorney General John Mitchell...and little old Hillary.

She got fired then. And in the 45 years since then, nothing has changed. NOTHING--except she's gotten better at graft, bribery and brazen lying. In a word;

"Which president are we talking about here?"

Mall Shooter a Known Wolf From The Other Cartoon Network; It's the Unknown Wolves You Gotta Watch Out For

"[Bush] dismissed the idea that going into Iraq had only served to "recruit" more terrorists to the cause. (General Pace told me last week that, if anything, the evidence is that Iraq has tied up a big chunk of senior jihadists who'd otherwise be blowing up Afghanistan and elsewhere.) The President's view is that before it was Iraq it was Israel; with these guys, it's always something. Sometimes it's East Timor — which used to be the leftie cause du jour. And, riffing on the endless list of Islamist grievances, President Bush concluded with an exasperated:

"If it's not the Crusades, it's the cartoons."

That'd make a great slogan: it encapsulates simultaneously the Islamists' inability to move on millennium-in millennium-out, plus their propensity for instant new "root causes," and their utter lack of proportion." --Mark Steyn

"It's just another workday here at Lone Wolf, Inc., Ralph. Go back to sleep--I'll wake you up when it's over."
Robert Spencer: "Nahid Hattar was murdered outside the court where he was facing charges for insulting Islam. In response, if they make any response at all, Western leaders will no doubt say that Nahid Hattar should have been more respectful of Islamic religious beliefs. That is always their response: if Muslims will kill you for doing something, we are told that we shouldn’t do it, and that it is wrong and insulting and offensive to do it. No one ever tells the Muslim killers to stop being irrational, violent bullies."

In the tangled world of Mid-East loyalties, Hattar was pro-Assad and anti-ISIS. Why one butcher is preferable to the other is unknown to us...but at least we can talk about it. For now.

Your "Hispanic" Turkish Mall shooter Arcan Cetin:

"Say Glory to Allah" ten times."
“My main dude, Abu bakr al big daddy. al qaeda.”
"My other dood. Ali come on me. :) Supreme Burrito of Iran (Ayatollah Khameni pictured)."

Motivation? It's a Mystery(tm). Unknowable, really.

Remember when Dick Durbin said Omar Mateen was just a mixed-up kid and not really a terrorist cos' he praised both Sunni and Shia, just like this Turkish immigrant kid? And Everybody Knows(tm) Sunni and Shia just don't mix.

Except for, you know, for the Ayatollah letting al Qaeda work out of Iran. But other than that, not much.

Durbin: "That Orlando shooter was babbling. He at one point said he was part of ISIS and at another point said he was part of Hezbollah, without realizing they are two warring factions,” he said. “I don’t know why [the FBI] opened it or why they closed [their investigation], but to argue they were somewhat afraid to identify someone who was a threat, I’ve never heard that bunch of baloney.”.....

By the way, that's when Durbin claimed he was the prime mover in getting the FBI to purge their manuals of any "unhelpful" (i.e., 'helpful') references to Radical Islam. But Durbin is just one of a hundred senators--and none of them get to set policy for the Executive Branch.

Durbin was merely acting as a beard for the Unknown Wolves in the Muslim Brotherhood Executive Branch who wished to remain unknown, unnoticed and unnamed Jeh Johnson Valerie Jarrett Barack Obama.

The kid is just another known wolf/lone wolf  grateful immigrant terrorist--ho-hum. Even the so-called "lone wolves" are working for the pack, aren't they?

In Cetin's defense, at least he never gave the Ayatollah nuclear weapons or pallets of cash like some other known wolves, such as KNOWTUS.

Remember, kids; nobody would ever work with Sunni and Shia together: It's Just Not Done!(tm).

Now run along and go watch your cartoons.

"Goodnight, Ralph."
"Goodnight, Sam."
"Goodnight, Barry."
