When I was your age, we were bogged down in Afghanistan – just like we still are now, son!

With Bannon gone, Javanka gets Daddy to send more troops to Afghanistan

16 years in Afghanistan, little to show, now more troops to be committed.

This wasn’t what the Donald campaigned on… But Bannon’s gone; so Javanka gets their way… Sad!

 

On neo-con female pundits and NeverTrump-ism

the “Never Trump” brigade is staffed largely by women. I contend therein that the rise of Donald Trump and the reassertion of patriarchy it expresses is seen (quite rightly) by Megyn Kelly, Sarah Rumpf, Amanda Carpenter, Michelle Fields, Dana Loesch, S.E. Cupp, Ana Navarro, et al., as a threat to their current pundit supremacy. And then Kat Timpf announced to the world from her perch at Fox News that Trump’s August 15 press conference would have precipitated a flood of hot tears, but she was compelled to control herself because “I have too much eye makeup on to start crying right now.” I am not, as the kids like to say, making this up.

Nikki Haley either finds non-Christian religious sites ‘holy’, or feels the need to pretend she does, while denigrating the cultural heritage of the country in which she was born, rather than treasuring it

I know it’s eleven days after this repost, but I want to expand on it.

Something I noticed in the quote below the 2014 YouTube clip linked in the previous post:

Haley was born as Nimrata Nikki Randhawain in Bamberg, South Carolina, US, on January 20, 1972, to an Indian Sikh family. Her parents, Ajit Singh Randhawa and Raj Kaur Randhawa, are immigrants from Amritsar District.

[…]

Haley was born and raised as a Sikh. On September 6, 1996, she married Michael Haley in both a Methodist church ceremony and in a Sikh gurdwara. Haley identifies herself today as a Christian. She said, “We converted to Christianity, but it was not political. It was out of the fact that when you change, when you grew up, you need more, and when you don’t understand the language.”

However, she said she was very proud of her upbringing, and very proud that she grew up in that environment. She said, “Christianity spoke to me that I could understand it. But, when you come to a holy place, you feel it.”

So, though ostensibly a Christian and not a Sikh now, she nevertheless feels overcome with a sense of the ‘holiness’ of the Sikh Golden Temple in Amritsar, India.

This shows she either has a poor understanding of her Christian faith (a Christian should truly feel no sense of divinity or holiness in a heathen temple); or her Christian faith isn’t genuine and she’s still a Sikh in her heart; or maybe she just doesn’t give a shit about religion at all but feels compelled to act as though she does when visiting her ancestral homeland, with the cameras rolling.

Not sure which of those three alternatives is the worst; they’re all bad, really.

After this visit, came the Dylann Roof massacre, and Haley felt the need to jump on the bandwagon to remove the Confederate flag at the South Carolina State Legislature grounds.

So, in the video she has real or fake emotion on full display, either embracing or paying lip service to the heathen religion which she supposedly left, but she can’t understand or relate to the heritage of the people where she was actually born and raised, South Carolina.

And so like all the other converged neo-cucks, she embraced taking down the Confederate flag.

And now, she’s among the warmongering chickenhawks trying to pressure Trump into neo-con warmongering.

Not very Christian, that, though it is in line with neo-cuck evanjellyfish Churchianity, I suppose.

It’s also in line with her Punjabi, Sikh heritage, which surely means more to her.

 

The false Right and Cultural Marxist infiltration

Good essay by Gottfried; details how compromised the neocons are; they even shilled for Macron in the French election, for Pete’s sake…

Philosophies of a Disenchanted Scholar

http://www.unz.com/pgottfried/yes-virginia-dare-there-is-a-cultural-marxism-and-its-taking-over-conservatism-inc/

““Conservatism” is now defined as waging endless wars in the name of universalist values that any other generation would have called radically leftist. And Cultural Marxists themselves now define what we call “Western values”—for example, accepting homosexuality.
The takeover is so complete, we might even say “Cultural Marxism” has outlived its usefulness as a label or as a description of a hostile foreign ideology. Instead, we’re dealing with “conservatives,” who are, in many ways, more extreme and more destructive than the Frankfurt School itself.”

Sell-outs of civilization for shekels.

Trump = Dubya II

Recall how Dubya ran against Gore on an America-first, semi-isolationist platform (re-watch or read synopses of the debates from 2000 if you need to refresh your memory), but when 9/11 happened, while understandably going after bin Laden and al-Qaeda, nevertheless also took advantage of the opportunity to do a bait-and-switch and go after Saddam Hussein, trumping up charges of terrorism-sponsoring against the secular, Baathist Iraqi regime leader and claiming Hussein had WMDs (which turned out to be false), and used that pretext to launch a war against Iraq. He also used the opportunity to smear Iran and North Korea’s leaders as being, along with Iraq’s leadership, part of an ‘axis of evil’, and whipped up antagonism against the NORKs and the Iranians, threatening to go after them.

Now in Trump, America has a president who campaigned against the bipartisan American imperialist foreign policy consensus, and made some semi-isolationist noises, but who, while rightly attacking ISIS and Islamic fundamentalist terrorists for their actions, has nevertheless taken advantage of the opportunity presented by the increasing rate of terrorist attacks to do a bait-and-switch and go after Assad, trumping up charges against the secular, Baathist Syrian regime leader – and also whipping up antagonism against the NORKs and Iran, threatening to go after them.

I can’t see the difference; can you see the difference?

None, in the first GOP presidency since Dubya and 9/11, almost two decades later…

Still not tired of being betrayed, diehard endlessly loyal Chumps for Trump?

 

No and Wrong

Christ died not for our freedom, but to save sinners from their sins, not for freedom in some abstract capacity.

U.S. soldiers died fighting for their country or the empire; take your pick, depending on the war. Again, freedom is abstract; one’s homeland is concrete, reality.

Equating the two is even worse than Julia Ward Howe’s line ‘As Christ died to make men holy, let us die to make men free’ (not ‘live to make men free’; that was a change from the original), because at least that was just drawing an analogy, rather than outright equating the two.

It trivializes Christ’s atoning work, equating it with human efforts, equates the work of God’s advancement of His Kingdom with the advancement of an earthly, temporal realm, and is therefore sacrilegious.

Remember, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
