UPDATED I (1/9): Bye-Bye Barack: Loser Lashes Out Over Legacy

“Bye-Bye Barack: Loser Lashes Out Over Legacy” is now on The Daily Caller. An excerpt:

… Obama is a case study in hubris. He began his presidency by claiming, in 2008, that his crowning was “the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”

“[T]his was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth,” Obama vaporized. “This was the moment—this was the time—when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals.”

His eight lean years Obama ended with similar arrant and arrogant nonsense: “I’m confident that if I had run again and articulated [my vision of progressive change], I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it.”

It’s perfectly plausible, then, to posit that Obama’s retaliation against Russia, three weeks before the inauguration of his successor, is a last-ditch attempt to gain one-upmanship over Trump, who is dominating the news cycle, a thing the narcissistic incumbent can’t abide.

Essentially, B. Hussein Obama is crashing about like a maniac in trying to retain his unwarranted status. Lo and behold, in the course of BHO’s flailing, we discover that government is perfectly capable of deporting foreigners when it wants to. Witness Obama’s petulant expulsion of Russian diplomats, payback for that country’s alleged harassment of American diplomats (no proof provided). This from the man who did nothing about Muslims murdering an American diplomat in Afghanistan. …

UPDATE II (12/9): The America-First Significance of Barack Obama’s Dust-Up With Bibi (& Putin)

Barack Obama, Donald Trump, Israel, Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, Russia, Trade

In the words of the Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, “Almost every level of dialogue with the United States is frozen.” As a spiteful Barack Obama prepares to punish Russia for infractions the American people, by-and-large, do not believe Russia committed—the American president watches his legacy slip away.

And Israel, seeing a weakness in Obama’s crumbling facade, has pounced.

Sequence:

First was the UN to pass a resolution, Friday, stating “that the establishment of settlements ‘has no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the achievement of the two-state solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace.'” (BBCNews)

Next was the US’s “decision to abstain” from vetoing the resolution.

Last came Bibi Netanyahu’s well-timed fury. The Israeli prime minister has asserted that the US orchestrated the admittedly idiotic vote against Israel. Knowing Obama, that seems entirely plausible.

Left-liberal civil libertarian Alan Dershowitz piled on by slamming Obama for lying to him early in his presidency about being friend to Israel.

Obama will further spin into spiteful oblivion when he tries to take a parting shot at Russia.

Why is this all good for America Firsters? The Process of Trump, delineated in the book “The Trump Revolution,” is ongoing. Trump, inadvertently and tactically, is chipping away at Obama’s so-called legacy, as the Left, steered by the nits at the CNN network, desperately galvanizes court historians to prop-up our empty vessel of a president.

UPDATE I (12/9): You’re witnessing a fit of pique from Barack Hussein Obama, in whom you have a loser fighting for his legacy, not for the American People.

Mosque Call To Prayer A Form Of Noise Pollution, Trespass

In Muslim countries, the remaining Christians and Jews worship under duress. Witness the latest massacre of Coptic Christians in Egypt, where a “bomb blast has killed at least 25 people during Sunday mass inside a Cairo church near the main Coptic Christian cathedral,” reports Egyptian state TV.

All Israel wants is for mosques to turn the volume way down. What a difference. I would ask that the muezzin stop screaming from the spire, or minaret of the mosque. Surely Muslims know what time service begins? Get the mosque to text you, if you forget.

A libertarian case can be made that penetrating, amplified yelps that travel far are a form of noise pollution. Citizens can seek redress in a libertarian universe for such trespass.

Try This On For Anti-Semitism

Anti-Semitism, Donald Trump, Israel, Judaism & Jews

“Try This on for Anti-semitism” is the current column, now on Townhall.com. An excerpt:

Paul Gottfried’s essay, “Are Bannon’s Critics For Real?”, dispenses with the no-brainer that Steve Bannon, “Breitbart executive and Donald Trump adviser,” is a white nationalist. After all, argues Gottfried, Bannon “comes from the world of Washington politics and journalism,” not exactly a hotbed of white identity politics. It’s “not at all clear to me that those who write for Bannon’s website publication, some of whom are Orthodox Jews, have much to do with white identitarians who also use the term ‘Altright,’” contends Gottfried.

As co-originator of the Alternative Right concept and phrase, Gottfried is in the know.

His piece appeared on FrontPage Magazine, which openly debates taboo topics—from black-on-white crime (the predominate kind), to slavery (who abolished it; who still practices it), to Islam (it counsels conquest, not co-existence). And now neoconservatism, a deformation of conservatism drastically weakened, inadvertently, by Donald Trump.

Why inadvertently? As Barack Obama remarked recently (“a stopped clock” and all that stuff), President-elect Trump is not an ideologue. It’s a point made in my latest book, “The Trump Revolution: The Donald’s Creative Destruction Deconstructed”:

“Donald Trump is no ‘visionary’ vis-à-vis government. If anything, he’s practical and pragmatic. He wants a fix for Americans, not a fantasy. A healthy patriotism is associated with Trump’s kind of robust particularism—petty provincialism, if you like—and certainly not with the deracinated globalism of the neoconservative and liberal establishment. The Left calls it fascism; patriots call it nationalism. Donald Trump has the potential to be just the provincial, America Firster the doctor ordered.”

Bannon is also catching hell for some hearsay. He’s alleged to have complained about wealthy Jews raising “whiney brats.” Try this on for antisemitism. It’s a flashback. I’m seated at a café with my father. We’re being served by a rather animated waiter. I can’t recall how the conversation turned to Ashkenazi Jews, but our waiter let rip: “If only Hitler had killed all of them,” he fulminated.

The café was in Israel of my youth. The waiter was a Yemeni Jew. The time: Well before American political correctness had percolated around the world. The hatred our waiter had expressed for his East-European brethren was perfectly understandable to Israelis back then. …
