Everyone Deserves A Place In The World

by

R.E. Prindle

 

The website 23&Me ran a full page ad in the Wall Street Journal today. (6/20/17) titled Everyone Deserves A Place In The World.

The ad posits this possible fact:Over 65 million. That is the amount of people who have been forced from their homes worldwide. Continuing conflicts and political instability…continue to displace more and more people each day.

I’m sure the above is trueish. The implication is that someone, obviously in more stable areas, should take them in because,

…we still have a tendency to focus on differences when we talk about humanity

I’m not sure that the conclusion drawn from the premise follows. This is known as fuzzy thinking.

We see otherness when we should see kinship.

We see “them” not “us”.

But on a genetic level, human beings are 99.5% identical.

This is pure scientific fact.

I don’t know how pure that science is or even if it’s a fact, but I do know this: I can’t run as fast as Usain Bolt. Something tells me that there’s more than .5% difference between us.

The ad goes on to implicitly call for the more politically stable US and Europe to take in all 65 million. There is a basis to compare the facts of taking in just a few million to taking in 65 million. I’m not just talking the logistics.

Europe, Canada and the US have taken in several million Moslem displaced human beings who according to 23&Me are nearly exactly like us, but do they think the same. Only .5% difference but we are all 100% human beings.

Just a few million displaced persons have created constant turmoil in the once stable European countries of Sweden, Germany, England France and Italy. Our fellow human beings have colonized cities and large areas from which they exclude “us”. These areas are called no go zones for “us”.

Our fellow human beings (99.5% identical) have murdered innumerable “usses” in terrorist attacks, they have raped countless women and blamed the rape on them because they were inappropriately dressed. In other words they wore European clothes rather than Moslem clothes. That’s all it took to justify rape in Moslem minds. (99.5%) They have bullied thousands of men who are forbidden defend themselves lest they be jailed as Islamophobes.

Yes, 23&Me they share 99.5% DNA but are they 100% grateful human beings? Did I mention that among their crimes they coerced thousands of underage English girls into prostitution? Does that affect you at all?

Are there 65 million displaced persons in the world? Are you aware, 23%Me, that in a couple decades, by 2050, when the world population increases by a billion or so that there may be over 200 million or more displaced persons?

I don’t think your heart will be big enough to contain them.

Thanks for the lovely sentiments.

Comey Of The FBI And The Dark Government

Comey of the FBI

And The Dark Government

by

R.E. Prindle

 

Since Pres. Trump’s election a ‘Dark Government’ has become a topic of conversation. There may indeed be a dark government, perhaps several. Ex-Pres. Obama is making a fool of himself by leading one as he interferes with Pres. Trump’s administration. Dark Government?   Indeed, maybe more than one.

The government of the US is a vast sprawling project where many duchies ruled by ‘warlords’ may exist.

Comey of the FBI in his congressional testimony may have inadvertently uncovered one, to which he belongs, the IC Community. Intelligence Community of different agencies. As Comey of the FBI describes it an IC agency had possible information of a salacious but unconfirmed nature about then Citizen Trump that occurred or may not have occurred, after all this was an unconfirmed rumor, many years ago.

The salacious, as we all know salacious means smutty, dirty, nasty, titillating, rumor was that Trump as a private citizen, completely unrelated to his present position, peed on a Russian prostitute in Moscow, Russia. In the annals of perversity how horrible is peeing on someone? American clowns gather on a hotel balcony beer in one hand and dick in the other and pee on a crowd below while laughing uproariously.

As a sign of contempt in concert with fellow conspirators some guy gets behind a victim and pees on his pantleg. That’s a big joke of the practical kind where only the perps are laughing. There must be numerous more examples in the annals of peeing. For all I know the government may at some time have spent a quarter million dollars to commission a study on the subject.

Nevertheless, the assembled chiefs of the IC Community gathered to discuss what to do about this unconfirmed rumor. The IC could possibly have leather bound volumes numbering a hundred or more of unconfirmed rumors. Who runs major investigations of unconfirmed rumors? Apparently no one but the assembled IC chiefs of which Comey of the FBI was one.

Probably giggling wildly the assembled Chiefs have to determine who is going to carry the news from Langley to the White House. Perhaps they spun a bottle to determine who but in any event the lot fell to Comey of the FBI.

Whether Comey ever gave the Pres. the news of the unverified rumor or not isn’t clear. Comey in his testimony gives no indication of what the rest of his conversation with the Pres. was about because the Pres. out of the blue struck him dumb by asking where his loyalty lay. Why did the Pres. ask him that?

Is it possible that Comey of the FBI had just relayed this salacious but unverified rumor to the Pres.? Wouldn’t this cast some doubt about Comey’s loyalty in the Pres.’ mind? Would it be unusual to ask: Why are you telling me this? How important can an unverified rumor be?

Let us suppose, I don’t know how he obtained the rumor, some Trump hating journalist learned of this, had this unverified rumor published. Wouldn’t the word of the assembled Chiefs of IC calling it nonsense be enough to discredit the journalist and quash the rumor? I think so. There must be something deeper going on here. In my opinion the reputation of Comey of the FBI is destroyed, not Pres. Trump’s.

A Review: Peggy Noonan: What Comey Told Us About Donald Trump

A Review:

Peggy Noonan,

What Comey Told Us About Donald Trump

by

R.E. Prindle

 

This is a review of the Comey/Trump Affair around Peggy Noonan’s WSJ article in the Wall Street Journal of 6/10-11/17.

 

First let’s put the Comey Affair into its set and setting. The current Pres., Donald Trump has caused the greatest political uproar since the election of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Roosevelt too was hated and vilified by what he called the ‘economic royalists’ that now hate Trump; different faces but same class. Former Pres. Obama prior to the election stated that Donald Trump would never be president. Trump’s political adversary, Hillary Clinton, thought her election in the bag only to find that the triumph went to her rival.

The news was crushing for these people who considered themselves an elite appointed by God to do His work. Looking down on Trump’s base that they had given many derogative names such as the Deplorables, ignoramuses and whatever they now found themselves led by a man they despised personally who was the leader of this despicable mob of unwashed peasants, to use an antique term.

Their disappointed rage was so terrible that many government employees quit their jobs while there was a near universal refusal by the remaining to cooperate in any way with the new President. They put on their pussy hats and through a snit in the very streets.

Comey himself had a very questionable role in the election releasing potentially damaging information concerning Hillary Clinton. The timing was suspicious. Clinton was accused of much more damning activities than Trump is being accused of but that has been swept under the rug. She is a Liberal.

So, while investigations have been going on for months and months now with absolutely no show of conclusive evidence, or indeed, any evidence at all, Congress chose to call a hearing at which the star witness was the FBI head who had already come up with nothing hence had nothing to report and in fact reported nothing.

So, really, what we have here is a show trial after the Soviet fashion. Also what we have here are essentially fictional narratives meant to amuse and entertain.   Just before his appearance, Mr. Comey released publicly a seven page propaganda paper he titled: Statement For The Record: Senate Select Committee On Intelligence.

Mr. Comey opens his short story, for that’s what it is, with the words:

Quote:

I was asked to testify today to describe to you of interactions with President-elect and President Trump on subjects that I understand are of interest to you. I have not included every detail from my conversations with the President, but to the best of my recollections I have tried to include information that may be relevant to the Committee.

Unquote.

Reading this one comes to the conclusion that this meeting has no other relevance than perhaps a discussion of the Pres.’ personal habits. Trumpian curiosities. In other words, the Committee is frivolous. Isn’t the real intent of the hearing to see if the Pres. is somehow criminally lacking. Comey is the man who is conducting this investigation to find Trump criminally liable for something, anything; the Committee doesn’t care what just so long as they can get rid of him. They think his election is a fluke and therefore doesn’t count.

And then Comey advises that he has carefully edited his testimony. To give his edits credibility, apparently knowing that one day he was to be called to testify something about the Pres. he ‘took notes.’ Apparently Comey’s conversation with the Pres. was so far beyond Comey’s experience, and he is a man who should have seen everything, that:

Quote:

To ensure accuracy I began to type (the conversation) up on a laptop in an FBI vehicle outside Trump Tower the moment I walked out of the meeting.

Unquote.

Hmm. An FBI vehicle outside Trump Tower? Was Comey wired? Was the FBI vehicle a surveillance truck? Hmm. Does the FBI have tapes of this meeting. That might be illegal.

Sure, there are enough weasel words in those comments that mean Comey has effectively said nothing. He has determined what the Committee wants to hear and presumably selected the most juicy passages throwing the rest of the edits on the cutting room floor. I wonder if Mr. Comey has ever been to law school where he would learn to talk in circles?

Now, Mr. Comey works direct for Mr. Jeff Sessions, Trump’s personally selected Attorney General and Mr. Sessions reports directly to Pres. Trump. Whatever information that Mr. Comey uncovers should have been made aware to AG Sessions. Was it? And, if not, why not? Sessions in his turn should have reported to the Pres.

But Mr. Comey does not speak through his boss Sessions. No. He says instead:

Quote:

The IC (Intelligence Community) thought it important for a variety of reasons, to alert the incoming President to the existence of this material, even though it was salacious and unverified.

Unquote.

I see, what we have is water cooler talk, a rumor jest and smirk. In fact, the story that Trump pissed on a prostitute in Moscow several years ago. One imagines the Committee members smiling inwardly at their recollection of the rumor.

As morally reprehensible as pissing on prostitutes may be, as a sexual perversion it is fairly common, even has a name: Golder Shower. And when it comes to minor sexual perversions, let the innocent stand up.

Wow, isn’t the country overjoyed by Trump’s exposure. (smirk, smirk, allusion intended.)

Now, perhaps I’m wrong but the FBI’s jurisdiction doesn’t extend to Russia. CIA maybe, but not the FBI. Yet, Mr. Comey was asked, not by AG Sessions but the Director of National Intelligence to deliver these remarks to the Pres. ‘because the material implicated the FBI’s counter-intelligence responsibilities. Oh.

And Mr. Comey said, holding up his right hand, this is the carefully edited selective truth, so help me God.

So, then, Peggy Noonan of the WSJ examines Mr. Comey’s selected and edited testimony. Now, remember, Comey is no callow youth. As Peggy describes him:

Quote:

Whatever Mr. Comey’s reputation, and it’s mixed- an intelligent accomplished professional who is plenty slick; state-of-the-art Beltway operator with an image of integrity, yet trailed with suspicions of slight smarm- he’s a careful man.

Unquote.

Then Peg quotes Comey’s relation of the face to face meeting on January 27, 2017 a week into Trump’s term of office when it might be said he is feeling his way in his new surroundings. Already under extreme attack, rioting in the streets, hateful MSM media coverage, Trump knows it’s going to be a tough haul. Comey has had a questionable record prior to the election. Sitting on this side of the screen I had to ask myself what Comey was doing? What was his agenda? Which side was he on? His own?

Wouldn’t it be reasonable then for Trump to want to get a feel for where Comey was coming from? We have Comey’s version of what he’s seeing in Trump but we don’t have Trump’s idea of what he’s seeing in Comey’s behavior. The other side always gives balance. What Trump does already know is that the civil service is up in arms against him, rabid Democratic Senators and Congressmen are obstructing every move he makes, if he jaywalks the MSM reports it as a major crime. So is Comey working for him or against him?

The Pres. levels with Comey, according to Comey’s notes written down later when he has time to compose a narrative, the Pres. says: ‘I need loyalty, I expect loyalty.’ Right! Who doesn’t? Damn right, he doesn’t need a smiling back-stabber; which is Comey, he wants to know, staring at him intently to capture his reaction.

This man of the world, Comey, this state-of-the-art Beltway operator, is struck dumb by Trump’s desire to know if he is going to back stab him or not. Well, my God, Comey is speaking to Trump, the Liberals idea of the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler. Why wouldn’t Comey come to the conclusion that Trump was asking for a Hitlerian loyalty oath, hey? It doesn’t seem he was to me, but what was Comey’s reaction to the simple statement of fact. Why, Comey this Beltway operator was struck dumb. This so far exceeded anything Comey had seen or heard deep in the Swamp of DC: ‘I didn’t move, speak, or change my facial expression (No! He was a deer caught in the headlights) in any way during the awkward silence (getting a little purple here) that followed. We simply looked at each other in silence.’

Does anyone with experience and sense believe Comey’s reaction? I don’t. Trump didn’t ask for criminal collusion as Comey implies, he wanted to know if Comey was a back stabber. All Comey had to say was I do my job without fear or favor from anyone. I will deal with you with integrity. I will not be influenced by the hatred that I know surrounds you. I am not your man but I will protect your administration from any unlawful assaults. You will have no reason to find fault with me.’

Bingo! That’s it. What does Comey do, he says and I mean I do not believe him, that he froze in the headlights. Some Beltway operator.

Peggy runs through the right or wrong arguments through the rest of the article. Then gives away the farm. She says:

Quote:

Then again, a conservative intellectual with small town roots wrote, during the testimony, that he thought this might be a break point, a moment when Trump’s supporters would listen close and think he’s not so much like them, and not so different from the swamp he means to drain. I myself don’t know.

Unquote.

Let me help you, Peg, didn’t you describe Comey as smarmy and slick at the beginning of your article? Didn’t you say he was a state-of-the-art Beltway operator? Do you not think us small town rubes saw that immediately? Trump is doing his best against terrific odds and that is clear to everyone but Trump’s enemies. No, we are not breaking, the deal hasn’t gone down, he may not survive the beatdown but he would still be a better man than all the people in the Swamp for all that.

How To Solve The Moslem Problem

How To Solve The Moslem Problem

by

R.E. Prindle

 

Europe and the US have no one to blame for their Moslem problem but themselves. They developed a social system like no other social system that had ever existed on the planet. Completely foreign to human psychology and then they expected the world to embrace it on first sight. As might be expected, other more traditional social systems being confronted by what they considered a monstrosity considered the Western system to be an existential threat. It had to be destroyed.

The most virulent of this opposition was aroused in the mind of the Moslem world. But what was the method to be to destroy the West? It was obvious that the pure military destructive power of the West could not be equaled by any effort of the Moslems. Since military warfare was out of the question they resorted to an asymmetrical warfare taking advantage of Western psychology that they had thoroughly analyzed.

The Moslems learned the rules of Western society and how to violate them with impunity. As I say the West has caused its own problem confident in their military superiority they bombed Moslem countries virtually into oblivion. This created vast numbers of displaced persons who migrated into the countries that had just destroyed theirs. These countries failed to see that they came as avengers intent still on destroying the Western social system and replacing it with theirs.

Once in place they began to put their asymmetrical methods into practice. Their warfare methods were treated as crimes no matter how horrendous they were. A perfect example is the bombing of the World Trade Center in the US, NYC. This sensationally successful operation cost them nothing other than 19 dead operators. Their explosives were two hijacked commercial airliners loaded with jet fuel which were flown into the towers. The result was not only that the two towers crashed to the ground but several ancillary buildings also, the total value was billions of dollars, three thousand dead civilians and the disruption of NYC for months while people as far away from NYC as Portland, Oregon feared an attack on its lone tower. The not very bright US president, George Bush, shut down the entire US for four days costing billions and fatally weakening the economic structure of the US. Bush’s further response was to spend trillions of dollars in a knee jerk reaction bombing the crap out of Iraq and Afghanistan. This ran the national debt deep into the trillions of dollars. Altogether this action that cost the Moslems nothing was perhaps the most successful military operation ever.

Not bad results for very little investment.

In addition the Western reaction was masochistic. They treated this horrendous act of war as a mere crime, rounded up some hapless Moslems who may or may not have had anything to do with the assault and put them on trial in a court of law. All the perpetrators died in the assault. If it was a mere crime this situation ended with their deaths. The Moslems must have thought: These guys are suckers! We can take them!

Then began a peaceful invasion of the West aided by Western politicians whose motives are still unclear. They’ve never been analyzed. Thus, now going on decades, Moslems have been committing every type of act of war with impunity while colonizing whole cities including London, Paris and NYC. In England, they recruited hundred’s perhaps thousands of young English girls to work as prostitutes, sanctioned by the government lest stopping it might be called, get this, racist. No kidding. Can’t you see the Moslems laughing their asses off around their hookah making obscene jokes.

They bombed the Boston Marathon injuring hundreds, the American masochistic response was: Don’t go off the deep end here. Not all Moslems are bad; these were terrorists. Well, OK, then what? The Moslems have been terrorizing Paris for a decade where dozens of cars are burned every night. If what I read is true, Saturday June 10, 2017 Moslems are going to begin a terror campaign of suicide bombers, armed assaults with AK 47s, bombings and whatever that will continue until Paris is destroyed. And France dithers.

In England the Moslems bomb a concert filled with children and all is forgiven. The West looks at a picture of a little Moslem child injured and goes off the deep end. But, masochistically accepts the bombing of English children? The Moslems get another big laugh.

Something must be done, the Moslems are about to conquer the West, but what? Military operations are out of the question, we would merely be destroying ourselves. OK. Why not take a page out of the Moslem book? What do the Moslems do when they conquer countries? What will they do when they conquer the West?

Quite simply, they will impose civil disabilities. Read your Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbon. I’m serious. Go out and get a copy now if you don’t have one.

As Gibbon tells it, when the Moslems conquer a country they impose civil disabilities on the non-Moslem population. Thus, even though the Moslems were a small part of the population they were able to control the much larger majority. Among the disabilities the natives were forbidden to ride horses being restricted to asses and donkeys. Those they had to ride facing backwards inculcating a feeling of inferiority and humiliation. There was an extra non-Moslem poll tax and other humiliations. Of course, one could escape these disabilities by converting to Moslemism. Thus, the non-Moslem majority was turned into a Moslem majority.

In today’s struggle the Moslem minority, while having more chutzpah than a whole tribe of Jews, is attempting to seize control of the narrative by ceaseless atrocities that the silly West continues to treat as crimes thinking, I presume, to solve the problem by removing the perps from the streets. Of course there is no bottom to the number of fanatics willing to be imprisoned or die.

The only possible solution to the problem that is viable is to impose onerous disabilities on the Moslems including a heavy poll tax. The option of renouncing Moslemism is available otherwise Moslems would have to endure the humiliation of civil disabilities or leave for Moslemland.

I’m sure that those who haven’t realized that the old democracy disappeared with the Twin Towers, as the Moslems intended, will object. They have to be overridden or we might as well turn Moslem now. There is simply no other viable option. Impose disabilities now. Sent the Imams back to Arabia and make the rest shave their beards.

This must be done if the West is to survive and done now. Let us hope President Trump has the courage to do the necessary.

First Thoughts On

M’sieu Macron And His Granny

by

R.E. Prindle

 

He stuck a feather in his cap and called it macaroni.

 

One of the most remarkable and laughable political performances of the century took place on the stage of France recently. It was almost unbelievable straight face stand up comedy.

This cute little guy who married his high school teacher twenty years older than himself has been elected by the French to represent them on the world stage in competition with big boys like Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. He self admits that he has no culture and neither do the French although I know of some perverts who are deep into French Culture so tell it to them.

Now, this little guy, cute as hell, M’sieu Emmy MacRoni who as far I know isn’t installed in office yet, stood up on the world stage and threatened Russia with dire harm from France then, turning from the East to the West he threatened the US, although this time he did invoke the EU. Apparently he doesn’t know that the EU is a toothless tiger without an army.

He seems to be relying on the President’s vocal critics in the US as his support.

Even though his Granny was a teacher, she appears to have been a little light on geography. Let me school M’sieu MacRoni in modern geography: France is this tiny little country on the Western end of the European promontory; China at the Eastern end of Asia could incorporate France into its empire off into some obscure corner and never trip over it; India makes France look like an off shore island as it is also much larger while growing rapidly into an economic power. These two Asian giants together rule world commerce while China is still organizing.

China is in the process of laying down a superslab highway along the route of the old Silk Road with ancillary highways. This will tie together all of central Asia and with luck extend all the way to the French coast. China will make the Mongol invasion a reality.

The world laughs at M’sieu MacRoni’s posturing. He seems something of a bad farce to us.

The Russia that M’sieu MacRoni is threatening is incomparably richer than France; for instance, it has oil and gas reserves and France has none. Think heating oil. Tell you anything M’sieu MacRoni?

The US that M’sieu MacRoni is mocking has pulled France’s chestnuts out of the fire twice, 1914-18 and 1940-45. US money set France back on its feet after WWII. OK, let the dead past bury its dead. Emmy MacRoni, who has no culture, has forgotten it so why shouldn’t the US.

The fact remains that the US also dwarfs France and the US and Russia combined are so large that France barely shows up on maps. With a minimum of luck the US and Russia are going to combine. This will leave the EU between the jaws of the anvil. You know what that means. The Eastern States of the EU, Poland, Hungary, Austria, Switzerland are already secession minded so the old EU is toast. A new EU will be formed along rational lines.

So, really M’sieu MacRoni, keep your threats to yourself. Be meek and mild, like you are to Granny, before your betters and cooperate fully.

We still honor the French culture you despise and say doesn’t exist but unfortunately it is going to be swept away in the course of events so it is irrelevant whether it exists or not except as a historical relic.

Accept the role of France in the near future. France can be only a facilitator and not a leader. On stage you act like you’re still in school before your teacher. Those high school essays are cute but they have no place in the real world. It takes more than strut to exist on the world stage.

Trump, Clinton And Deep Politics

Trump, Clinton And Deep Politics

by

R.E. Prindle

Much noise has been created about possible Russian involvement in the recent presidential election. Conflicting reports have the Russians favoring either now Pres. Trump or, on the other hand, Clinton. It has been considered especially reprehensible that Pres. Trump was ‘elected’ by the Russians. And if this defies common sense whatever influence Russia may have had it could not possibly equal the US media hate blitz unremittingly directed at Trump for well over a year leading up to the election. One wonders how Trump survived it. Yet this supposed invisible Russian influence overrode the US media hate fest.

However, in a situation nearly totally obscured by the US MSM both Trump and the Clintons were involved with the Jewish/Russian Mafiya. This is not to say they were willingly but as the Jewish mob was extremely powerful, especially in NYC, coercion was involved.

The Jewish Russian criminals arrived en masse on our shores after the downfall of the Soviet Union in the nineties. They came in the thousands destroying Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach suburb. Extortion was a key racket so it is probable that both Trump and the Clintons were forced to pay for protection.

I will deal with Pres. Trump in another article but first I wish to give an indication of the Clintons’ involvement. This is a quote from Robert I. Friedman’s book Red Mafiya: How The Russian Mob Has Invaded America. This Mafiya is always referred to as Russian but in fact they are all Jews from Russia. P. 267-68.

Grigor Loutchansky, a Latvian born convicted felon and president of the Austrian-based NORDEX, a multinational trading company, had been implicated in everything from major money laundering to smuggling nuclear components. House speaker Newt Gingrich once said the US government officials believed Loutchansky had shipped Scud missile warheads to Iraq from North Korea. The ubiquitous Loutchansky was also a former business associate of both Chernomyrden and Semion Mogelevitch, according to CIA and other Western intelligence officials. Yet somehow this enormously wealthy underworld rogue was invited to a private Democratic National Fund-raising dinner for Clinton in 1993. During coffee, Clinton turned to the mobster to ask a favor: would he pass along to the Ukrainian government requesting it to reduce its nuclear stockpile? Clinton then posed for a photograph with the grinning hood, which Loutchansky later liberally passed out among his cronies, greatly enhancing his stature among corrupt government officials and the criminal underworld. When the photo of the men shaking hands was eventually published in a Russian newspaper, the CIA analyzed it to see if it was fake. When they discovered it was genuine, agency officials were aghast. “Loutchansky had one thing in mind: legitimization,” a congressional investigator probing Russian organized crime explained. “He wanted US citizenship and he wanted to buy a US bank.”

This criminal Mafiya organization that as Friedman explains had seriously corrupted US society and politics has been almost completely ignored by the MSM. The Clintons were involved as early as 1993 and judging from contributions to their charity fund it has continued until today. According to Friedman the US CIA and FBI were well aware of the Jewish mob and yet did little about it. One imagines that this Mafiya’s influence on US politics was much more effective than any of the Russian government.

China, Hollywood And The ‘Correct’ Point Of View

China, Hollywood

And The ‘Correct’ Point Of View

by

R.E. Prindle

 

A very interesting story about China and Hollywood appeared in the Wall Street Journal of today (4/19/17). It confirms the continuing marginalization of the US and the threat to the survival of its Constitution.

It seems that Part 8 of Fast and Furious opened in China to 169 million compared to about 70 million in the US. (Inflated to 99 million in the reporting by including Canadian receipts, so China can now dwarf North America. (US, Canada, Mexico). Thus, implications go far beyond mere Box Office considerations. China has now surpassed the US in screens adding 25 a day, that is, 25 a day! Chinese admissions are half the US so the Fast and Furious receipts could be doubled to 338 million. China soon will have a bigger annual gross than North America with plenty of room to grow.

Anent political considerations the WSJ story makes two very revealing admissions:

Tensions between China and the White House have accelerated since the presidential election. Mr. Xi is seeking to strike a contrast with President Donald Trump as a champion of globalism, and he appears eager to advance China’s narrative- both by pressuring Hollywood studios to portray the nation favorably and in the long term, by adopting Western filmmaking techniques for China’s own industry.

So, what kind of favorable portrayal do the Chinese insist upon, which is actually a form of censorship, because they won’t show US movies that might be critical. For instance in a movie portraying the Trump, Xi, Kim Jong Un situation it would be necessary to show China as the moral and ‘correct’ champion with the US and Korea as squabbling brats. Hollywood will have to accept an inferior position for the US.

Here Mr. Xi should horrify US Liberals and have them condemn him and China as Neo-Nazis. Indeed, as Mr. Xi states:

We must make patriotism into the main melody of literature and art creation, guide the people to establish and hold correct views of history, views of the nation, views of the country, and views of culture, and strengthen their fortitude and resolve to be Chinese,” said Mr. Xi at the Beijing Forum on Literature and Art in October 2014.

So, there you have it, conditions no Liberal will tolerate in the US but are acceptable to them when imposed by China. In pleasing the Chinese to retain access to the Chinese market Hollywood does violence to everything the US professes to believe as guaranteed by our Constitution. In point of fact, as far as movies go Hollywood is now the tail and China is the dog. The Hollywood tail is not going to be able to wag the Chinese dog.

In fact Hollywood’s relationship to the market now becomes like that of France, Germany or Japan to the US market. i.e. foreign films. China within perhaps as little as a year or two may produce more movies than the entire West let alone Hollywood.

The mass market in the US has then disappeared. With the mass market gone the way is open for other cities than Hollywood to produce movies designed specifically for the US domestic market or US-European markets. In any event Chinese control of ‘correct history, culture and mores’ must not be allowed to control US filmmaking.

As Mr. Xi’s comment indicates his notion of globalism is simply Chinese domination of the globe. Foolish Americans if they allow that to happen.

A Review: WSJ-Wooing China To Drop Tariffs

A Review:

WSJ-Wooing China To Drop Tariffs

by

R.E. Prindle

 

Today (4/5/17) we learn in the Journal that China places tariffs of double digits on US goods. President Trump has been cursed for not being a Free Trader and the quaking shaking Libs wobble around in circles at the mention of the word tariff. But now, according to Bill Lane, of Caterpillar, who wrote the article, the Pres. Is going to entertain Chinese bigwigs at Mar-a-Lago and ‘woo’ them to drop their tariffs.

So, now we belatedly learn what has been concealed, the Chinese have never been Free Traders, just free loaders exploiting the US and Europe. The story goes further than Bill and the WSJ do as they don’t delve any deeper. As Niall Ferguson pointed out in an article the Chinese threw up a firewall against US technology companies so that they wouldn’t dominate China while the Chinese studied the internet and stole whatever information they needed to create their own search engine, Baidu, and mimic and master the social media. That done you and I can now download Baidu but the Chinese are unable to ‘Google it’. Rah, rah, rah, Free Trade.

So, now that Bill and the WSJ realize they’ve been walking around with something stiff and yellow up their backsides for years they’re beginning to feel the discomfort. After decades of that they’re going to attempt to solve the problem bass ackwards. They’re encouraging the Pres. To ‘woo’, understand the word woo, China into dropping its tariffs rather than doing the muscular thing and impose tariffs on the Chinese and kick their asses in line.

Ah, but the Libs say that will wreck the Global Free Trade system, but, there isn’t a Free Trade system as China has amply demonstrated. So, what did China achieve by imposing double digit tariffs? They built up their economy quickly and at the expense of a Global Free Trade system. We in effect paid them to do business with them.

So, what will happen if the US imposes double digit tariffs on Chinese goods? China will be forced to develop their own internal economy while the US will quickly rebuild its own economy.   Will that mean goods will no longer be cheap? Why? As the Libs never tire of saying, robots are doing the work so there won’t be any jobs.

Well, if the Chinese are turning to robots because robots are the cheapest to run even more cheaply than cheap Chinese labor then goods can be made as cheaply here at the same cost that is as in China. Imagine the transportation costs that will be saved making our domestic goods even cheaper.

Mr. Bill concludes his argument thusly: Maybe this is the right time for the two leaders to cut a deal to slash Chinese trade barriers.

Chinese trade barriers? Why weren’t Chinese trade barriers a major topic during the election? Why are we only hearing of Chinese trade barriers now? Maybe Chinese trade barriers didn’t and don’t fit the so-called Free Trade system? Then we have nothing to lose.

Face it Libs: We’ve been had since that dolt Nixon opened to China. It is time for China to play by the same rules the Free Traders are playing by to get a little of our own back.

I just hope the Pres. turns aggressive and stops the defensive cowtowing to those East Coast Libs and pays more attention to the people who elected him. Figure it out Mr. Pres. they would have loved to have burned you at the stake back then and it would gratify them much to see you in flames now. Stop trying to placate them and kick them into place.

Some Idle Chatter Concerning The National Enquirer

Some Idle Chatter Concerning

The National Enquirer

R.E. Prindle

 

Probably everyone is familiar with the National Enquirer from standing in line at the grocery store checkout stands idly looking over the top magazines. Sure to catch your eye with their sensational headlines was the NE. Nowadays it’s a fairly respectable magazine compared to their glory days when they came up with most improbable, impossible, sensational stories ever conceived by the mind of man. Of course, the literally minded especially were repelled.

I enjoyed it. Who’s kidding who; I grew up in the fifties, that golden age of sci-fi and I immersed myself in it both in print and film. Not only sci-fi but goof-fi in the ridiculous Mad Magazine. By the time the NE came along my mind had been trained to live in this universe and a couple parallel ones. I could handle any alternate reality and keep them all separate. I was one of the urban spacemen. Alternate realities were my stock in trade. And then, the NE came along. Oh boy. It was almost heaven. Tales from some undiscovered crypt. King Tut’s discovered tomb compared as nothing.

These days, like I said, the NE is almost respectable. The stuff inside is as true as any other newspaper, maybe truer. The only good news is that they still have that sensational style of relating prosaic stories. As time goes by, of course, they need something new and in President Trump they have found it.

I don’t know when they began but for the last several issues the Pres. Has been the feature story on the cover. The stories are still sensational but disappointingly true. They all check out and they have better sources for info than the NYT and Washington Post. Those fake newsers have been seen picking themselves up from the mire after having been run over by the NE.

The current 4/3/17 issue is a humdinger. It tackles the Russian spy issue used in the attempt to discredit President Trump. Plus, the info is concise, to the point and seemingly accurate. One wonders where they got their stuff. I’ve got an idea; there’s a White House leak and the NE’s Deep Throat is undoubtedly the President himself. I mean, he is no fool.

Consider that he is a native New Yorker, albeit from the outer boroughs, while, I believe, having been the subject of exposes in the NE over the years.   He’s always been good copy. The Donald, as he then was, has famously said that when you’re punched, punch back. What better weapon than your own propaganda paper on the same level as the Times and Post?

The articles are always favorable, even mildly laudatory, to the Pres. So given his NYC upbringing there is no reason that he shouldn’t personally know the owners and/or editors. There’s a natural reciprocity there: the NE gets exclusive stories and the Pres. Gets the favorable publicity, or propaganda, he needs.

The anti-Trump papers announce that there are Russian spies in the government as though since the election the Pres. Invited them in. As there are Russian spies in the government now, then, they were there under Obama, under Bush, under Clinton and under all the presidents since FDR who did invite them in. While it is difficult to see what harm they have caused since Gorbachev threw in the towel under FDR they did cause major damage.

Of course, during FDR’s time the Liberals thought Russian spies were a good thing. When they were exposed the howling denials could be heard all the way to the Volga. The careers of those who exposed the infiltration, Martin Dies, Parnell Thomas, and Joe McCarthy were absolutely destroyed, their names made anathema. If there had been a way to eliminate the names it would have been done.

Today when Russian spies can do little damage all of a sudden instead of being a blessing they are a curse. What changed the Russian character? The present head of Russia and not Soviet Union, is not a Communist. That’s the difference. No, he is a conservative. Trump is a conservative. Bad, bad. Putin’s bad; Trump’s bad. My bad. Conservatives bad.

Don’t know why. While our interests differed back in the Stalin days, in these Putin days our interests converge. It appears from the NE article to be true that Flynn was at least acting as an unregistered foreign agent, which was meaningless back in the old Red Star days, for Putin there is no evidence that the Flynn betrayed US interests. He was trying to further them. The fact is Russia is not our enemy. We are morphing into the same ideological stance. One that preserves the identity, culture and civilization of Euroamerica, the West.

That is a good thing. Something to be desired. Something beautiful created over four thousand years and more. Something of value not to be lightly discarded.

The amazing thing would be if the NE turned into a daily national paper to rival the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post. The Post, by the way, is owned by Jeff Bezos of amazon.com. I’m only intuiting this but it begins more and more to appear that Bezos picked up the Post to further his own political ambitions. The Presidency is Bezos last frontier after he stocks every American household with their goods.

Sometime after the next two years or so Bezos will probably declare for 2020. If it should turn out to be Bezos and the Washington Post vs. President Trump and the National Enquirer wouldn’t that be something? I’m all for it. Go, Donald Trump; go National Enquirer.

A Discussion Of Crispin Sartwell: How We Got This Way

How We Got This Way

A Discussion Of Crispin Sartwell’s

The Postmodern Intellectual Roots

Of Today’s Campus Mobs.

by

R.E. Prindle

 

The major problem in discussing today’s political affairs is dealing with the authoritarian position of the Liberals as to the indisputable certainty of their views. They are so certain that they are willing to use physical violence to enforce this view on everyone. One is reminded of the Communist Soviet Union of the 1920s and 30s.

Crispin Sartwell examines the development of this state of mind in the above referenced essay. Unfortunately the essay appeared in the Wall Street Journal of 3/25/17 and the Journal’s policy prevents its republication; hence no link.

Sartwell attributes the attitude’s rise to what he calls ‘the second great era of speech repression in academia.’ Apparently his professor, Richard Rorty was instrumental in propagating the attitude. In 1998 Rorty published his views in book form: Achieving Our Country: Leftist Thought In Twentieth Century America.

Sartwell quotes Rorty, ‘objectivity is a matter of intersubjective consensus among human beings, not of accurate representation of something nonhuman.’ A perhaps interesting opinion but that leaves us with the task of explaining what ‘intersubjective consensus’ is and how it is to be obtained. We’re dealing with a lot of alchemical air here in which subjective thought is transmuted into objective thought by being shared by humans and Rorty means the whole of humanity. To me it sounds like something along the lines of J.G. Jung’s ‘collective unconscious’ in which the racial subconscious is somehow transmitted from generation to generation, and just as subjective.

What it amounts to is that a number of ‘human beings’ get together and agree to agree that something is so whether it is or is not and having once ‘objectified’ their subjectivity by agreeing with other they are willing to punish anyone who disturbs their pleasant utopian fantasy. In other words, twenty-first century Communism by another name with new terminology by a collectivity promoting their unsubstantiated viewpoint.

Something like Des Cartes: I think, therefore I am. While this formula takes the young by storm and they go around repeating it as though irrefutable truth actually I am therefor I think is more logical. A thought requires a thinker to think it not the other way around. I am, therefore I think.

Thus adherents to Rorty’s viewpoint having devised this reformulation of Communism have set about to impose their utopia by force.

Rorty condemns any opposition as heretical:

It is doubtful whether the current critics of the universities who are called ‘conservative intellectuals’ deserve this description, for intellectuals are supposed to be aware of, and speak to issues of social justice.

So, the ‘intersubjective consensus’ controls the narrative while determining the rules of the game. We may understand ‘social justice’ to be the Party line and any deviants don’t the name of ‘intellectuals’ or thinkers. To the outer darkness with them.

And then Sartwell says: ‘By that logic it is defensible to eliminate such people from graduate programs, to deny them tenure, even to shout them down.’

Yea, verily, even to beat them up, prevent their entry to campus and deny them voice. Eventually to murder them as the Soviet Communists did to dissenters in the nineteen twenties and thirties.

Thus, we have the attitude towards President Trump in which any objective view that looks outward at the object instead of inward at wishes is denied validity. One doesn’t describe the situation per se but the utopian, that is the Communist political correct diktat.

The real problem with President Trump and the Liberals then is not Donald Trump himself but the fact that he denies the ‘the intersubjective consensus’ viewpoint. He points derisively at the naked emperor. This cannot be tolerated by them. He must be impeached before he opens his mouth.

During the campaign then you saw criminal violence committed against the Trump voter. Many were beaten fairly seriously while the disruption of Trump’s rallies was so severe that his Chicago rally was cancelled by the Communist mayor for ‘fear that Trump’s rally would cause rioting.’ That shows how violent these people are prepared to be supported by the authorities. Of course the rioting and burning of cars after the inauguration confirms this. Other examples…but they are well known.

Let us hope the President can defuse this situation without having to resort to equally repressive measures. Let us just say that the Liberals are tempting fate.
