Thinking about America and a New Presidency

Putin … views the current American political leadership class as utterly decadent and unworthy of traditional diplomatic norms and boundaries … (Emphasis added.)

The Democrats … hate conservatives or non-leftists.  They don’t like half the people of the country they seek to control!  They look at that half with disdain and disrespect.

Barack Obama is releasing terrorist combatants and commuted the 35 year sentence of American soldier Bradley Manning who exposed military secrets to the grave detriment of America’s safety and national security.

This, of course, follows Mr. Obama’s display of weakness in Syria when he threatened retaliation if Syria used chemical weapons on its own people – and, despite his words – did nothing.

The Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens in his August 23, 2016, article “The New Dictators’ Club” describes how Mr. Obama succeeded in creating the circumstances for Russia, Iran and China to expand their power while he did nothing.

His Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, of course did her part by equipping a Russian “company” to acquire significant holdings of American uranium needed for nuclear weapons while collecting donations to her family Foundation from those involved in the transaction.

The Obama-Clinton’s idiocy of the “Arab Spring” disaster, added to Syria and the uranium deal, the release of terrorists, and the freeing of Mr. Manning makes the point that Barack Obama has given ample reason for others to treat us with contempt and invited their collusion and aggression.

Too many of the Ivy educated “leaders” never learned the basic lessons of life and one is the simple school yard lesson that “bullies take what you let them take and to prevent this you must knock them on their backside and beat some sense into them.”  The sense?  Yes, this:” don’t screw with me or you will get far worse than you’ve been given already.”

But alas, we are “governed” by those who have never been in a fight in their life.  They have badly wounded this nation.

At the beginning of the movie American Sniper, Chris Kyle’s father tells his two young boys that God made three kinds of people: sheep, sheep dogs and wolves and that it is the sheep dogs who protect the sheep from the wolves.

We haven’t been electing sheep dogs, and the wolves are having their way.  That’s got to end.


Footnote – You want to know how decadent this culture has become under the “elites,” Left and the Democrats?  We now report on the news that Mr. Bradley Manning (confused, self-mutilating young man) is now Chelsea Manning. Language matters.  A twist here and there and we lose our way; lying has its very expensive costs.  Tower of Babel, anyone? Yes, the Left has succeeded in making us contemptible.  Why do you put up with this?  Sheep or sheep dog?
