During the Cold War the Soviets were contained by physically surrounding them with allies (NATO) while pelting its firewall with messages from the Voice of America, Newsweek and CNN. Precious little got through. Just how total this exclusion was in pre-Internet and BC (Before Cellphone) age is illustrated by the story of defector Viktor Belenko´s reaction to American supermarkets. Nothing the vast array of goods and absence of rotten smells in these establishments the defector suspected Fake News. "I congratulate you," Belenko said en route back to the mansion. "That was a spectacular show you put on for me." "What do you

FTA: The Chinese aren´t afraid of Putin, but they are terrified of what they perceive as chaotic process. In the West it´s just the opposite. No one fears a chaotic process. They´re all afraid of a man.

Now who might that be? /sarc off

Conventional wisdom posits the chief challenges facing the post-Cold War World are Global Warming and the decline of international institutions. But maybe that assurance is a species of Fake News.

The new information technology--not to mention the fracking revolution that has made oil and gas unacceptably (to the Left) cheap--has made the outside world a more dangerous place for totalitarians like the Chinese and Russian governments. Also a more dangerous place for would be totalitarians like Obama and Capitol Hill Democrats, who hoped out loud for our gasoline prices to achieve parity with Europe at between $7 and $9 per gallon. Whom would that have helped? Our enemies and competitors, so admired by the screwball Left.

In totalitarian states people´s access to information must be rigorously controlled lest nascent urges to be free burst out all over these "managed" populations.

President Trump is about to lead the USA to some very beneficial changes, changes that will hurt the Left and its cheerleaders in Big Media (BM), who wish the worst for this great Nation. No wonder they hate him. He´s pushing in the direction of their political extinction.

This article describes the major reasons that Trump is so reviled, that he can succeed, and the Left KNOWS this. The Left has been working on undermining Capitalism because they KNOW that it is the linchpin that has allowed the US to accomplish all that it has done.

What are a couple major threats to the US and the world? Islamism and an expansionist Russia. Both are upheld by oil earnings. The success of US in fracking and other energy technologies has already devastated the Russian and Middle Eastern economies, and that is with BO kicking and screaming and desperately trying to stop it.

Imagine Trump unleashing the full power of the US economy fueled by our vast energy resources, similar to what Reagan did with our military resources. Reagan destroyed the USSR without firing a shot. Trump could annihilate Islamism and completely corral Russia easily. The US has THAT much strength and Trump knows it. The Left is terrified of it because it would unleash an American supremacy that would dwarf what happened after the USSR collapsed. With such a powerful America, North Korea could finally be swatted. The ongoing attacks against Israel would we starved for money and the supporters of it would be forced to back away. Technology unleashed could seriously clean up the environment and would prove that global warming is an idiot´s paradise.

The very real potential is there for a golden age ... BUT the globalists, Islamists, Leftists would have no say in it´s creation or implementation. THAT is the fear, the complete and utter loss of power.

Frankly, the biggest impediment to that golden age is our own Congress, terrified of their own shadow and grasping for their own power. They are fools.

It is a given that the news media intentionally lies and distorts - they think that they can´t be ´racist´ and report the fact that the robber was a black man, so just leave race out, simple. Of course, then when you report that the robber was a white man, we learn that if no race is reported, it was a black man.

We try to adapt, see through the intentional lies, but we need to find better, more honest sources. KC has a relatively new online source of news and commentary, edited by Jack Cashill.

https://sentinelksmo.org/

Worth your time, although definitely KC-area focused.
I think this sort of honest, alternative sources of news are the future. I know that NYT is essentially certain to be lying to me, so I just won´t go to their site, ever. But The Sentinel is a source that I can trust, I can relax my BS sensors a bit, because they don´t lie.

A footnote on Victor Belenko.

After he had been in CIA hands for a year or more, he wanted to see the USA on his own - and from his book, to break through the Potemkin Village that he thought he was living in and see the real America. He asked for and got a big American car (used Pontiac, IIRC) and took off driving, choosing a random path, and stopping to see shopping and hospitals in different towns. Somehow the CIA was one step ahead of him every time, setting up these fancy, fake supermarkets and phony hospitals. No matter how long he drove, and how he, himself, had no plan or idea where he was headed, the CIA managed to stay ahead of him, setting up fake supermarkets for him to find. HOW did they know where he was going? How did they have time to set things up before he got there?

After months of this he was literally on the brink of a mental breakdown, since he knew, as an immutable fact that the USA was filled with poverty and had worse conditions than in Russia, but somehow he just couldn´t break through the curtain no matter how far, fast or in what direction he drove. He could not grasp that his whole lifetime world view was the fake.

He met a US woman, she befriended him, and helped him to understand the real world, and keep his sanity. He has remained a staunch anti-Soviet, anti-Russia person all these long years since his defection with a MiG-25 in 1971.

His book, MiG Pilot, is worth the time.

UC Berkeley faculty called for a Campus-Wide Boycott of Class to protest the visits of conservative speakers to the campus. (Snip) If the Left now think they can determine the limits of free speech they are more trapped than empowered, captives of their own stare decisis. They are on a treadmill sometimes called a "national conversation" from which they cannot get off. Often when the Left talks about having a national conversation they mean the thoughts that occur to them and no one else. Then having adjudicated their own internal reflections they author what they regard as binding opinion on themselves and all the rest.

WASHINGTON – Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) evoked President Nixon to criticize the Trump administration’s handling of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), particularly with proposed cuts to the agency’s budget in FY 2018. “I don’t know if people realize this but Richard Nixon was an environmentalist. He was also a Republican. His administration passed landmark legislation like the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and the National Environmental Policy Act. He also is the creator of the EPA,” she said on a conference call briefing with the American Sustainable Business Council on “the importance of the EPA and what is at

People who claim to be shocked that Donald Trump is prepared to make an amnesty deal for the"Dreamers" -- most of whom are Mexicans who entered the USA at around the age of six -- are being more than a tad disingenuous. The president has been hinting as much for over a year to anyone paying attention. In fact, it´s hard to conceive how he could have done otherwise, considering the (excuse the cliché) "optics" of shipping 800,000 young people back to a homeland they may never have seen.

It was odd to think about Shakespeare during a hurricane, but the Bard knew his storms. From "King Lear" to "The Tempest," where there was a Will, there was a wave, and often a deluge. Shakespeare liked his storms because they placed his characters under pressure, scattered them to the corners of the Earth, made them strangers in strange lands, and tested what they were made of. He knew that all humans – even kings – looked tiny in the face of a storm. None more so than King Lear, the ancient monarch who made the mistake dividing his kingdom among his

The Cleveland Indians can return to clinching their division and playoff preparations. Their historic winning streak is, well, history. Cleveland had its AL record run stopped at 22 straight games on Friday night as the Indians were beaten 4-3 by the Kansas City Royals, who became the first team to conquer the defending league champions since Aug. 23. Jason Vargas (16-10) pitched into the sixth and Brandon Moss homered off Trevor Bauer (16-9) as the Royals ended baseball´s longest win streak in 101 years. The Indians set a new league mark and came within four of matching the overall record held by the

BELLEFONTE, Pa. – A son of former Penn State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky pleaded guilty Friday to charges he pressured a teenage girl to send him naked photos and asked her teen sister to give him oral sex. Jeffrey Sandusky´s plea deal comes a week before his trial was slated to begin on the charges, and nearly six years after his father was arrested in a child molestation case that shook Penn State and is still working its way through criminal and civil courts. Jeffrey Sandusky pleaded guilty to all 14 counts, including solicitation of statutory sexual assault and solicitation

Who’s a Fascist? Why Does it Matter?

Despite all the chatter, there aren’t any fascists involved in the clashes involving the misnamed “white nationalists” and “antifa” (antifascists). Each side accuses the other of “fascism.” But fascism was destroyed in the Second World War, and insofar as there are still some scattered remnants, they are non-Western (the Iranian Islamic Republic and the Islamic State “caliphate” are perhaps good examples). But “fascism” as it originated, and came to power, in Europe is gone, and there is no sign of contemporary revival. There has never been a viable fascist movement or party in the United States (any more than there has

So here is the CNN video highlight of the year. Today CNN had on someone named Clay Travis, who apparently is a popular sports radio host (I don’t listen to sports talk radio), talking about the ESPN controversy over Jamele Hill saying something mean about Trump (I don’t watch ESPN either), and Travis repeated several times that the only two things he believes in are the First Amendment and. . . boobs.

Senator Dianne Feinstein revealed both the Democrat’s anti-Catholic bigotry and view of work when she said: "And I think in your case, professor, when you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that´s of concern when you come to the big issues that large numbers of people have fought for years in this country." She was addressing a Catholic woman who has been nominated to the judiciary. Can you imagine what would happen if a Republican questioned a liberal woman’s suitability for the judiciary because of that woman’s religious beliefs? Apparently, according to

CLEARWATER — The tree fell late Sunday. An enormous cedar, at least 40 feet tall, with branches blanketing two back yards. The trunk, as wide as a couch, crushed a chain-link fence. The limbs tangled in power lines, wrestling them to the soggy ground. Wires snapped one power pole and bent another, whose lines pulled on the pole across the street, snapping those. When people in the modest neighborhood behind Spectrum Field emerged after Hurricane Irma, they saw the splintered tree, the broken poles and dangling lines — and resigned themselves to being in the dark. "Especially when we found out how many

I may need to buy this book. It’s proving to be an even richer vein of blog content than I imagined. There are establishmentarians, there are big-government establishmentarians, and then there are people who read Orwell and see a parable about insufficient trust in authority: (Snip) That passage doesn’t even describe Trump’s M.O. correctly. He does prize dominance and he’s authoritarian by instinct but he’s retreated from authoritarian options so far as president.

There´s an old Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times." Well, boys and girls, we definitely live in interesting times. They´re so interesting, in fact, that more and more children appear to be going through the process of transitioning from their birth gender into something else. To be sure, the numbers aren´t really all that staggering. It´s far more likely that the handful of cases we hear about are the majority of examples in existence, which means maybe a few dozen throughout the Western world.

The 2017 Emmys Awards ceremony wasted no time getting political during Sunday’s opening segment, as host Stephen Colbert and friends made political jokes within the very first minute — and Colbert quickly accused President Trump of treason. Before his opening song, host Stephen Colbert chatted with Anthony Anderson and Allison Janney, and she complained about the current state of the world. The “Mom” actress mentioned global warming and fighting leaders, and joked that HBO was bringing back “the Confederacy,” a reference to the flap over HBO’s planned new drama series “Confederate.” Moments later, Colbert sang about the virtues of television,

The Big Idea: If I had to stock Hillary Clinton’s new memoir in a bookstore, I’d be tempted to place it in a section on self-help or bereavement. “What Happened” was quickly strip-mined for political nuggets after its publication last Tuesday. As I went through it over the weekend, though, what struck me most was how the wounded Democrat coped after her crushing defeat last November. In short, Clinton has read voraciously and eclectically — for escape, for solace and for answers. The collection of works that she cites across 494 pages showcases a top-flight intellect and would make for a compelling graduate school seminar.

ST. LOUIS -- Protests turned violent for second night near St. Louis following the acquittal of a white former police officer in the fatal shooting of a black man, as a small group of demonstrators refused to disperse, breaking windows at dozens of businesses and throwing objects at police, who moved in with hundreds of officers in riot gear to make arrests. The confrontation took place late Saturday night in the Delmar Loop area of University City, a suburb about 10 miles (16 kilometers) west of St. Louis near Washington University.

A woman police believe was pregnant was among five people killed and 13 wounded in Chicago shootings Friday into Saturday morning. The woman was one of four victims slain in a rifle attack in the Brighton Park neighborhood Friday night, police said. The quadruple homicide happened about 8:40 p.m. in the 4700 block of South Fairfield Avenue, police said. Three men and a woman were inside a vehicle when someone inside a white SUV opened fire on them with a rifle, police said. Responding police officers found their bodies inside the vehicle and they were pronounced dead on the scene. The

The silent coup has apparently succeeded. President Trump has been convinced to abandon his revolutionary program of putting “America First,” and has decided to play footsy with globalists like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.There have been signs since before Trump took office that he was not dedicated to accomplishing the goals he promised—whether that was building the wall, repealing Obamacare, cutting off funding for Planned Parenthood, lowering taxes, leaving NAFTA, or many more.[SNIP]The final nail in Trump’s and America’s coffin may be his decision to become the stepfather to President Obama’s illegal executive order establishing Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals.

Hillary Clinton rejects the idea that a June 2016 meeting between her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch critically damaged her White House bid. “I just don’t buy that,” Clinton said in a PBS interview aired Friday evening to promote her new book, “What Happened,” about her loss last year to Donald Trump. As Clinton has in several other, recent interviews promoting the book, she heaped much of the blame on then-FBI Director James Comey.
