#TrumpAdmin: #POTUS @realDonaldTrump #Afghanistan Address Thoughts

I will be talking off the cuff with no links or anything, because I want you to know that these are my thoughts alone.

Tonight President Donald Trump will announce the Afghanistan strategy going forward. From observing President Trump’s speeches and foreign policy so far, I can only guess at what he’s going to do. However to understand Trump’s upcoming Afghanistan decision, we must look at the Trump Doctrine first.

Some people have mistaken his non-nation building “America First” rhetoric as a case of isolationist policy. Yet I don’t think I’ve ever heard President Trump say “isolation” or “retreat” when talking foreign policy. I think I can boil down the Trump Doctrine as such:

  1. America First: Does it serve America’s or our allies interest? On this point alone, staying in Afghanistan forever does not serve American interest. No one wants to stay in Afghanistan. However there our other considerations to make.
  2. No Telegraphed Operation Or Red-Line Retreats: Are we giving our enemies our plans and/or a timeline to wait us out? Say what you will about President Trump, he’s a student of history (or at least recent history). President Trump has been repeatedly critical of President Obama’s announcing of withdraw time-lines and major operations to the press (which only gets back to the enemy). I don’t think Afghanistan will be any different.
  3. Islamic Terrorism Must Be Defeated There, Not Here: Will this take the fight to Islamic terror away from our soil? Most defiantly. And thanks to President Obama’s fucking indifference to Afghanistan, not only is the Taliban still there but ISIS/ISIL too.

Base on the information and theses points, I don’t except a pullout and neither should you. However I do expect a overhaul of the policy/strategy and the setting of goals. President Donald Trump has been a “I will help you, help yourselves” kind of guy and I think this will be the new policy in Afghanistan going forward. We can’t let Afghanistan fall, but we can’t take care of them forever.

President Donald Trump is stuck between a rock and a hard-place. I do not envy him for one second. I pray that God gives President Trump the wisdom to discover right, the will to choose it, and the strength to make it endure.

Well, see ya’ later!

#NeverHillary: Damage To #Palmyra Cannot Be Overstated

My good friend (at least I hope he is a good friend) Jazz Shaw covers the re-taking of Palmyra and ISIS/ISIL (as well as Bashar al-Assad) looting of the place. The damage to archaeology cannot be overstated.

However I cannot express how ultimate blame should be placed on Hillary Clinton’s blood-soak shoulders. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani explains:

By being part of an administration withdrew from Iraq. By being part of an administration that let (Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki) run Iraq into the ground, so you forced the Shiites to make a choice. By not intervening in Syria at the proper time. By being part of an administration that drew twelve lines in the sand and made a joke out of it,” (Former New York City Mayor Rudy) Guiliani said.

O’Reilly then pointed out that as secretary of state, Clinton was not personally responsible for the decisions, and that the most she could have done to compel Obama to change his policy was resign.

“Which is what a patriot does,” Giuliani said.

Now only that, but she then went on to heap praise on Bashar “A Reformer” al-Assad during the first few months of the Syrian Civil War:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton… drew a contrast between Syrian President Bashir Assad and his late father and predecessor, and said U.S. lawmakers who recently have visited Damascus regarded him as a “reformer.”

She made the startling comment while explaining why the United States will not intervene on behalf of Syrian civilians revolting against the regime as it has done in the case of Libya.

And now, thanks to EmailGate, we know that Sidney Blumenthal warned Hillary Clinton to stop the “reformer” nonsense:

Longtime Clinton family confidante Sidney Blumenthal warned then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2011 that Syrian President Bashar Assad is no reformer.

“Enclosed is an article by David W. Lesch, perhaps the U.S. expert with the closest relationship with Bashar al-Assad, developed out of my continuing correspondence with him, an edited version which I have appended,” in a message to Clinton on June 20, 2011.The bottom line is that Assad’s gestures at reform are delusional attempts to recreate the pattern of his own recent past when he gained a modicum of respect from the West.

The same reformer who looted Palmyra well before ISIS/ISIL got their bloody paws on it.

The Bush Administration didn’t want to have anything to do with Bashar al-Assad after the Hariri assassination. The blood spilt in Syria’s Civil War and Palmyra’s destruction is all on Sec. Hillary Clinton, because she and President Barack Obama both bear full responsibility for what happen under their watch. Clinton as secretary of state was chief ambassador and foreign policy maker for Obama, so don’t tell me she isn’t responsible. And you can take that all the way to the bank.

Now Sec. Hillary Clinton wants to be president? Well, fuck that noise! #NeverHillary is greater than anything right now!

Well, see ya’ later!

#Trump2016: @realDonaldTrump, #PoliticalCorrectnessKills, And #Hypocrisy Abounds

I want to apologize to Donald Trump. He is not Ego, he is the ID. Trump is unfiltered. Trump is unbound. Trump is incoherent.

The fact that Donald Trump is the Id, scares a lot of people. I understand that sentiment. You see, The Left is Ego (where Political Correctness comes from) and The Right is Super-Ego (where Morality comes from).

However, The Right wants to (at the same time) embrace and dismiss the Id too.

What do I mean? Recently, The Right floated the hashtag #PoliticalCorrectnessKills. The basic idea is that Political Correctness will keep you from doing what is right, because you do not want to be shamed. The San Bernardino shooter’s own neighbor thought Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik were acting suspicious, but did nothing because he did not want to be called a racist. We bitch and moan that President Obama is not doing enough to screen people coming into the United States and destroying ISIS. Then we turn around and condemn the Id, I mean Donald Trump, for speaking out as he does.

Like I said, I understand not being rules by the Id. However I think it is height of hypocrisy to summon the Id and then recoil when it rears its head.

Look, we are talking about war here. The whole point of war is to keep hitting someone until they say stop or stop moving. The idea is that we need to win the next five wars while winning the current war. The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was a horrific thing to do, but a prolonged invasion of Japan would have been even MORE horrific. The bloodshed, rape, and destruction across Japan would also not have sit well with anyone. It also showed the world the horrific nature of Nuclear Weapons in general. If we didn’t have those images from the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, I personally don’t think we could have come out the other end of the Cold War.

I am not saying we should nuke the Middle East, what I am saying is that we need to stop being politically correct about war. Donald Trump is not saying wants to put Muslims in concentration camps, he wants to pause Muslim immigration until we can get a better screening process to root out Radical Islam (YOU DO NOT HAVE CONSISTULTIONAL RIGHT TO MIGRATE OR VISIT THIS COUNTRY). Donald Trump wants to take the hand-cuffs off the US Military and stop pussy-footing with ISIS/ISIL (THEY DON’T GIVE TWO CENTS ABOUT OUR FAMILYS, WHY SHOULD WE?).

We need to either embrace political correctness and welcome our doom, or reject political correctness and defeat Radical Islam once and for all. I am exhausted from hearing from people talking both ends on this subject.

I am going to leave you with the best part of the video called Darth Vader, which actually matches more than the other parts of the video. Come to the Dark Side, we have Trump Steak!

Well, see ya’ later!

#ISIS/#ISIL Orders #Infanticide Of #DownsSyndrome Children

Right, you want to read something monstrous (Via Peter Singer):

It might be maintained that ‘even allowing for the more optimistic assessments of the potential of Down’s syndrome children, this potential cannot be said to be equal to that of a normal child’. But, in fact, people with Down’s syndrome, as well as people affected by many other severe disabilities, are often reported to be happy.

Nonetheless, to bring up such children might be an unbearable burden on the family and on society as a whole, when the state economically provides for their care.

On these grounds, the fact that a fetus has the potential to become a person who will have an (at least) acceptable life is no reason for prohibiting abortion. Therefore, we argue that, when circumstances occur after birth such that they would have justified abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible.

Ops, sorry. That was from the awful Journal of (So-Called) Medical Ethics. Yeah, we already know The Left shares this appalling taste for Down’s Syndrome blood.

Now where did I put that link and information about ISIS/ISIL… Is it here? No… Oh, I found it at last!

Iraqi activist group Mosul Eye says the ISIS Shar’ia Board issued a savage “oral fatwa (an Islamic term for a religious decree)” to its members authorising (sic) them to “kill newborn babies with Down’s Syndrome and congenital deformities and disabled children”.

If true – and reports from the war-torn region are difficult to verify – it means ISIS has taken a leaf from the Nazis, who murdered disabled children it perceived to be a “burden on the state”.

Mosul Eye monitored the deaths of children with Down’s Syndrome and other congenital deformities and discovered the fatwa was issued by one of Islamic States’s Shar’ia judges, a Saudi judge named ” Abu Said Aljazrawi.

No wonder President Obama loves them some ISIS/ISIL and has a weak stomach to destroy them, they share the same infanticide blood lust! How fucking horrific!

Next time The Left wants to throw “GOP And ISIS/ISIL Share Common Cause” for whatever reason, then I will throw this in their face!

Well, see ya’ later!

#Trump2016: The #ParisAttacks Is Why I’m Endorsing @realDonaldTrump …For Now

I want to state first and foremost, that I do not think Donald Trump is the right person for the job. That honor goes to Scott Walker. However, as much as I hate to say it, Donald Trump may very well be the only person who can be President right now.

At the start of November 2015, I thought I could sit out the GOP primary without endorsing anyone. When the Florida primary came around I would vote for Scott Walker as a write-in and take pop-shots at Hillary Clinton whenever I could. The Paris Attacks woke me up and told me I could not very well sit on the sidelines anymore. So I sat down and went through the candidates.

I like Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina, but I can’t endorse them. Ben Carson lacks ego. Carly Fiorina has ego and drive, but lacks everything else. I honestly think they would make better Senators.

To be brutally honest, I can’t endorse any Senator running because of Barack Obama. I would make an exception for Marco Rubio, however I rather he become Florida’s next governor and THEN become President.

The only governors I would have endorsed, were Rick Perry and Scott Walker. Of course they dropped out and we as a nation lost big time when they did.

I dismissed Donald Trump out of hand. I distrust the guy. Trump is a loud mouth, unrepentant egomaniac. Until a few years ago, Trump was also an unrepentant liberal. In fact, he still sometimes spews liberal nonsense. Trump latched onto the crazy Birther nonsense and would not let go.

Yet President Obama’s unbelievable response to the November 13th’s Paris Attacks made me take a second look at Donald Trump.

So I decided to sit down and list what are Donald Trump’s positives: Here is a guy who turned a million dollars, into billions of dollars (which is honestly no small feat). Here is a guy whose mantra is to “Make America Great Again” and that is great goal no matter how you spin it (whether or not he has the right policies or not, is up for debate). Here is a guy that says some things I agree with (even if I don’t agree how he says it).

You know, I did not endorse Florida Governor Rick Scott in the GOP primary when he ran in 2010. Yet I gritted my teeth and I voted for him in the general election that year. I have call him out many times, especially on Sun Rail. However not once have I regretted voting for him. He has not been the best governor ever, but Rick Scott is clearly not the worst governor. Through sheer force of will alone Rick Scott has moved Florida forward, for good or ill.

I am not a single issue voter. Nor am I looking for someone who totally matches my world view. I’m looking, first and foremost, for a leader to move America. A leader is someone who moves his followers, not the other way around. The only person I keep coming back to who could move America forward through sheer force of will alone, is Donald Trump. This is not done lightly or without a lot of prayer. So, for now, I am endorsing Donald Trump for President of The United States.

This endorsement is not meant as support for everything Donald Trump has done or said. In fact, I will continue to be one of Trump’s biggest critics when I disagree with him. I will not join the Cult Of Trump, so I will not jump down your throat for any reason. I will lay down the marker that I will vote for the GOP nominee, whoever he or she might be.

Well, see ya’ later!

#NorthCarolina’s #SamanthaJohnston Joins #ISIS/#ISIL Fight

While Obama dry humps the press over if their ISIS/ISIL “strategy” is a successful or not, Samantha Johnston takes matters into her own hands:

Samantha Johnston, 25, a mother of three children, told the Daily Caller she left everything behind to fight the Islamic state.

“I decided to come fight because I felt like it was my duty,” she told the publication.

Pictures of Johnston, a divorced mother of a five year-old and three-year-old twins, carrying a rifle and wearing military fatigues have been circulating on Kurdish news sites. …

“These children here who are homeless, orphaned; mothers and sisters have been raped and sold, fathers who have been killed, they are suffering, and I knew that I couldn’t just sit and do nothing,” Johnston said in an interview with the DC.

Now before you think she is just some house wife who just up and left to fight in a war zone with no training, think again:

According to her military record Johnston served in the US Army from 2008-2011 as a geospatial engineer.

So she is a trained soldier. I hope she is able to put her geospatial engineering* skills to good use in Kurdistan**. If she was just some house wife who had no military training, then I would be saying that she is putting her life in unnecessary danger. Either way, she is a volunteer soldier. She was not forced to do anything. And on top of everything, she is fighting for the good guys. So on those terms, I salute her.

She is divorced and thus her own woman. I have not found on any news site on what happen to her kids, but since they don’t say, they are likely with their father. I get the impression that the father already has custody of the kids, thus a bigger deal is of made of this fact.

“Oh My God! A WOMAN left her kids to go fight ISIS! She must be a bad mother!” -Some Idiot

Yeah, fuck that noise. That argument falls on deaf ears here. Men go off to war all the time and leave their kids behind. A lot don’t return. Are they bad fathers too?

Men and women have been going off to war for a long time now. If women can pass the same training standards as men, then I say “Hooah!” and let them serve in combat.

I want to wish that magnificent woman Samantha Johnston, Godspeed for a safe return. If she stumbles across this post: Love and prayers for you. You and other Americans in the Peshmerga make us all proud. Remember your training (save you it will) and make those ISIS/ISIL assholes die for their cause.

Well, see ya’ later!

Turns Out #StrategicPatience …Is Nothing New

Last night someone retweeted this almost two-year-old tweet and it immediately made me regret not currently owning any alcohol:

I think I will go over there and forget everything for a while. I feel sick. I can’t stand it anymore. Stop, I want off. Stay away from me. I can’t think anymore. I want out…
