Things Are Speeding Up!

Net Neutrality approved by the FCC, EO on ammo, and Keystone Pipeline Veto all in one week. Communication outage in Arizona. Putin critic killed at the Kremlin. 

What the Hell is going on? I go to the field for 5 days and all this s&!t happens? I do not recognize my country any more. You are getting the fundamental change that he talked about in 2008-2009. And we still have 23 months to go. 

The GOP has publicly castrated itself. The Tea Party has lost a lot of its steam. And the dumb, pliable public is still distracted by bread and circus. 

Maybe my rantings are due to lack of sleep (6 hrs of sleep total from Tuesday to Friday night. Yeah, it was one of THOSE field problems. The hallucinations  were AWESOME!). Folks, they are setting the chessboard and the numbers of moves left are running out.

Moving To Checkmate

DoomerDoug is making some very interesting interesting observations about some recent news events. With the US now officially out of Yemen (wait a second, I thought that was a success story for this administration?), the Russo-Iranian alliance now could control total access to the Suez Canal.

What does that mean? The Suez Canal allows for shipping to move from the Med to the Indian Ocean without having to sail around the bottom of Africa. The ability to use the Suez has played an important to American military planning. How fast can we project and support military power of we lose the ability to utilize the canal? 

The chess board is being played very well right now by Russia. Remember, the object of chess is to corner your opponent and limit his movement, forcing his capitulation. 

Thoughts? Agree or disagree?

Thomas Bergersen - Remember Me. In Honor Of My Grandfather Who Just Passed.

Back In

Whew. Another field rotation down, how many more to go? Lots more. Posts are going to be not as frequent. There is a lot happening in the world. Syria, ISIS being attacked by Jordan (The King is a BOSS!), very large explosions in Ukraine, etc.

My sole surviving Grandparent passed away last night. Truly an end of era. One of the finest men I have ever known. Truly a privilege to call him my Grandpa. Rest easy.

An Interesting Analysis Of The Left As They Are Today.

Wright makes a lot of the same points that I have shared with people I know. The Left-Islamic "connection" is one of the greatest philosophical paradoxes of our age.

"Something rotten, very rotten has happened to the Left just in my lifetime.
They used to be champions of free speech; and now they are its most vehement opponents.
They use to be able to give some sort of argument or logical reason for their position, even if an incorrect argument; now they have no argument, none of them, aside from wild and insincere accusations delivered in a mechanical fashion without any hope of being believed, phony as a three-dollar bill.
They used to be firmly on the side of the workingman; now they hate the workingman as a white racist oppressor.
They used to be in favor of free love and the sexual liberation; now they object to rocket scientists wearing shirts with cartoon women printed on them, they object to science fiction magazines showing a scantily clad warrior princess slaying a monster, and they call all sex rape, and demand strict segregation of women and men. On the same day as these protests, they appear in front of the Pope, writhing on the ground naked with crosses and crucifixes inserted into their vaginas. So the Puritan rules apply arbitrarily, without sense or order, to anyone or no one.
They used to be in favor of Blacks and other minorities; now their disgust for all the impoverished and dispossessed is plain to see. All they want is to keep the Blacks on the plantation, addicted to welfare, addicted to crack, their children aborted, their parents unwed.
They used to be in favor of the Jews, and other minorities; now they kneel to Islamic Jihad at every opportunity, vowing that those who slander the prophet of Islam will no be in the future, and ergo the Left now curse the Jews, and pray daily for the destruction of Israel, and a new Holocaust in the warhead of a Muslim nuke.
What? You say that his the not what the Left says? That they say they are creatures of purity, goodness, and sweetness, who live only to help others out of the depth of their hearts and the depth of your wallet? No, that was the old Left, back when the Left still had some scraps of sanity and intelligence.
They serve Sauron and have forgotten their own names. (emphasis added)
They do not say what they are, because, if you listen to them, they say that words mean nothing, that truth is relative, that all civilizations are no better than savagery, that no religion is better than another, and that anything which is not illegal is allowed.  So of course they say they are perfect angels: because the word has no meaning to them, no words have meaning, and telling the truth is not correct. Only political correctness is correct.
Now they have gone fullbore barking moonbat mouthfoaming evil. The last traces of decency were scraped away with an exacto knife the day the Feminists publicly defended Bill Clinton abusing an underling, and no one on the Left rebuked them: and that was decades ago. Now they defend and make common cause with the Jihadists, who use power tools to drill holes in the legs or skulls of small children whose parents they wish to impress.
You see, it does not matter if the Jihadists act like the mass murderer from the movie SAW combined with Freddy Kruger combined with Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Che. Che is a hero of theirs. Mao is a darling of theirs.
Point out any barbaric act by any Jihadist, and the Leftist will say two things: (1) Christians are just as bad, and therefore cannot make the moral judgement that Jihadists have done bad things; (2) Not all Muslims actively support the Jihad; it has nothing to do with their religions, which is noble and peaceful.
Point number might be confusing to you, like hearing a man over and over saying he can eat the Sun for lunch. It is so far removed from reality that their is no normal explanation for it. It is not the kind of lie one says in order to deceive someone, and certainly no one with an IQ number higher than his shoe size would deceive himself with such a comically unbelievable statement. What does it mean?
The Leftists know it is a lie, but they are afraid that if the Christians discover that Islam is a violent and dishonorable religion, our Christian bigotry, Christian hatred, Christian violence, and Christian loathing of all dark-skinned people will boil to the surface so suddenly, that cities will be in flames, mobs in peaked white hoods will slay all the Negroes, and innocent Muslims be marched into gulags and concentration camps, slaughtered in the same astronomical numbers the Mao slaughtered people, Stalin slaughtered people, and the Muslims slaughter people now.
Is that clear? Every time some Leftist says “But not all Muslims are terrorists” he is accusing you, Christian man or woman, of being a hate-filled bigot one half-inch away from a berserk killing spree, not to mention a theocratic totalitarianism as bad as … well, as bad as any Muslim nation.
They would rather die at the hands of a mad bomber than be accused of being like you. They think you are  a racist, a bigot, a theocrat. They hate you more than they hate the Devil. The devil they salute as a rebel and freethinkers. To him they dedicate books.
Leftism is hatred. Everything that is normal, sane, healthy, holy, rational, or good, they hate.  They hate the death penalty for murderers and love suicide and euthanasia. They have daydreams about the human race being wiped off the globe, in order to preserve the Guatemalan water snake or the Puritan stink bug. They hate marriage and love sodomy. They hate wealth and success. They hate population; they hate people. They are fearless when it comes to Jihad and fearful when it comes to the weather. They love abortion most of all: nothing gives a Leftist hearts in his eyes faster than contemplating a score or a hundred dismembered dead babies piled up in a heap outside an abortion mill, and denied a Christian burial.
They cannot even stand each other any longer. The Left is devouring itself:"

There is truth in what Wright is saying here. I share most, if not all, of his conclusions. It is time we wake up and realize this is for the species. 

To the Left the end justifies the means. We have to understand fully what that means to them, and us. We have seen the fruit of this thinking with the mounds of bodies it leaves in its wake. 

What are we willing to do to counter the Left? What steps may become necessary? I pray that we never reach that precipice, that decision point.
