A New Era for the China-Russia-Us Triangle
Tribune Content Agency, by Victor Davis Hanson

Nearly a half-century ago, President Richard Nixon’s secretary of state, Henry Kissinger, established a successful U.S. strategy for dealing with America’s two most dangerous rivals. He sought closer ties to both the Soviet Union, with its more than 7,000 nuclear weapons, and Communist China, with the world’s largest population. Kissinger’s approach was sometimes called “triangulation.” But distilled down to its essence, the phrase meant ensuring that China and Russia were not friendlier to each other than each was to the United States

VDH does not mince words. He lays our current relationship with China right in Obama’s lap.

This state of affairs dates back to the Bush43 administration. With the fall of the USSR there was to be that enlightened "New World Order"...and here we have one. The bigger problem for the US is that the traditional powers are pacifists, hardly going through the motions. The Brits are hardly lions these days - afraid the Argies will test them in the Falklands. The Germans more allied with Russia to fulfill energy needs. France is France.

Meanwhile, the US has struggled along with a largely Cold War based foreign policy, still searching for an adversary to take the place of the USSR. Except, there are none in the wings, so Russia it is! Putin has broad shoulders, and he needs a "superpower" adversary himself to maintain Russia´s domestic image of itself.

So...expand American troop presence to include Poland? Sure, why not? Syria seems under control these days. Now, what to do with Iran?

Posted By: earlybird- 10/22/2018 7:01:26     Post Reply
The migrant caravan from Honduras has been infiltrated by people from Bangladesh, Haiti, Congo and Sri Lanka, according to embedded reporters. Thousands of military-aged, virile mostly Honduran males breached the Guatemala border gate over the weekend and stormed the Mexican border bridge; Mexican authorities ultimately let the caravan through. A second caravan of 2,000 migrants formed on Sunday and started marching to Guatemala with a plan to reach the U.S. as their final destination. According to a Univision correspondent, Bangladeshis joined the migrant caravan before it crossed from Guatemala into Mexico.

Monday at CNN’s CITIZEN conference, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said President Donald Trump’s tweet saying “unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in” with the migrant caravan headed toward the U.S.-Mexico border is a “fear tactic.” When asked if he knew what Trump was talking about, Flake said, “No, that’s long been pretty much a canard and a fear tactic.” He continued, “These, for the most part overwhelmingly, are people who are either fleeing violence or looking for a better life.”

NBC News Data presents an analysis by completed by TargetSmart showing key states and the registered affiliations of early voters. Within the analysis Republican voters are leading Democrats in all states except Nevada. (Snip)[Graphic]Additionally, the underlying data must be troubling for democrats for two reasons. First, NBC is admitting the ‘blue wave’ is in trouble; that’s not typical. Secondly, within the NBC report they attempt to water down the result by saying that Democrats usually don’t turn out as well in votes before election day, and usually do better ‘on’ election day.

Creepy Porn Lawyer and potential 2020 Democrat presidential candidate, Michael Avenatti, was hit with a $4.85 million judgement today awarding the settlement to an attorney for his former law firm. Last week CPL said it was unlikely he would lose, stating: “nothing’s gonna happen on Monday” and the claims against him were “bogus”; whoopsie. Today’s judgement is in addition to a previous award of $10 million to the same lawyer, Jason Frank. Today’s loss comes on the heels of a financial defeat last week when Creepy and his client Stormy had their case against President Trump dismissed

Poll: Republican Rep. John Faso
Inches Ahead in Crucial NY-19

Incumbent Rep. John Faso (R-NY-19) is up by a single point over Democrat challenger Antonio Delgado, according to polling. In a crucial House race that will help determine which party controls the House of Representatives for at least the next two years, Faso was down three points to Delgado back in early September, 45 to 48 percent. A Siena poll now shows Faso up one, 44 to 43 percent. This, however, is well within the poll’s 4.6 percent margin of error.(Snip)The good news for Faso is that his district would prefer to see the GOP hold the House,

Obama’s Transgender Ideology

President Donald Trump’s Justice Department will soon decide if agencies must follow biology when they document the legal sex of American women and girls, men and boys, according to a document leaked to the New York Times. The policy would protect Americans’ civil rights from the transgender ideology which insists that everyone has an FBI-enforced federal right to switch their legal sex — regardless of their biology — when entering sports competitions, K-12 bathrooms, hospitals, gym showers, the military, or single-sex civic society groups. This transgender ideology was promoted in 2016 by former President Barack Obama

Michael Avenatti won´t bring his anti-Trump rhetoric to Texas on Monday despite his promise last month to ´fight fire with fire´ when the president visits Houston. Two days after Trump announced that he would swing through the Lone Star State to stump for his former bitter rival Sen. Ted Cruz, the flamboyant lawyer said he would stage a counter-event somewhere in Texas. Blaming a scheduling conflict, he told an NBC reporter on Sunday that he won´t be coming.

President Donald Trump alerted the military on Monday, as the caravan of migrants crossed into Mexico. “I have alerted Border Patrol and Military that this is a National Emergy (sic),” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Must change laws!” The president announced the news after the caravan that originated in Honduras swarmed over the southern Mexico border over the weekend, increasing to 7,000 people. “Sadly, it looks like Mexico’s Police and Military are unable to stop the Caravan heading to the Southern Border of the United States,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in.”

It was not immediately clear where the additional travelers had materialized from since about 2,000 gathered on the Mexican side Saturday night.

TAPACHULA, MEXICO -- A growing caravan of roughly 7,000 Central American immigrants continued its trek toward the United States on Sunday, blowing past Mexican police and immigration officials. The group, which has swelled in size in recent days, set out before dawn on the only road out of the small Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo. It arrived in the afternoon in the city of Tapachula, more than 20 miles away. The migrants, nearly all from the poor and violent nation of Honduras, posed a growing political and humanitarian calamity for Mexico,

Every big U.S. election is interesting, but the coming midterms are fascinating for a reason most commentators forget to mention: The Democrats have no issues. The economy is booming and America’s international position is strong. In foreign affairs, the U.S. has remembered in the nick of time what Machiavelli advised princes five centuries ago: Don’t seek to be loved, seek to be feared. The contrast with the Obama years must be painful for any honest leftist.

This is beyond odd, but here goes. I rise to defend Hillary Clinton. She is under attack and this time, the long knives are wielded by members of her own clan. Suddenly, after two years of indulging Clinton’s blame games and pity parties, lefty pundits say she’s talking too much, she’s stuck in the past, she had her chance and she blew it. Vanity Fair, declaring that she “still hasn’t learned the lessons of #MeToo,” is furious that Clinton said her husband’s Oval Office dalliance with Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power

San Francisco - Cow´s milk is allegedly a symbol used by white supremacists, according to PETA. In a recent statement, the animal advocate organization explains that dairy milk has been the drink of choice for supremacists because "the dairy industry inflicts extreme violence on other living beings." According to PETA, "some people might be surprised to learn that cows used by the dairy industry are slaughtered after about five years because their bodies are so spent from being kept constantly pregnant."

The fact that Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyers refused to release the results of her polygraph exam until the day before her testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee last month caused some suspicion. And when we finally got a look at them, a lot of Judge Kavanaugh’s supporters were confirmed in their suspicions. It turned out that Ford’s examiner, former FBI agent Jeremiah Hanafin, only asked her two relevant questions. And that’s not how most folks imagine polygraph exams are supposed to go.
