UPDATED (1/19): “Lindsey Grahamnesty” And His Republican, Chicken-Little Amigos

Conflict, IMMIGRATION, Neoconservatism, Republicans

“Lindsey Grahamnesty” and “Lindsey Gomez” are good nicknames for the odious senator from South Carolina. He said so himself.

Why is it that Graham, popularity with Deplorables 0 percent when he dropped out of the presidential race (12/2015), is speaking for Deplorables on immigration? Why has this traitor anointed himself the pointman for the GOP on immigration, and is being interviewed not once, not twice, but non-stop on the idiot’s lantern? Why is a lawmaker so unpopular with those who count, so popular with kingmakers?

And why do the Republican quislings in Congress keep intoning that “the DACA challenge” is the most urgent thing for Congress to solve? Why is DACA so urgent? Because lawmakers like the Flake-Durbin-Graham amigos tell you something—it doesn’t mean you must accept it as Bible from Sinai. Don’t be a Chicken Little. The sky is not falling.

Let the benefits to illegals expire. So what!

UPDATE II (1/19): Graham has complained that he wants the “Tuesday Trump” back, the Trump who was ready for a DACA giveaway. Deplorables want the Monday, Tuesday, Wed., Thurs, Friday, Sat. Sunday Graham GONE.

THE NEW COLUMN, “How President Trump Normalized Neoconservatism,” is now on WND.com. An excerpt:

It’s fact: Neoconservatives are pleased with President Trump’s foreign policy.

A couple of months back, Bloomberg’s Eli Lake let it know he was in neoconservative nirvana:

“… for Venezuela, [Donald Trump] came very close to calling for regime change. ‘The United States has taken important steps to hold the regime accountable,’ Trump said. ‘We are prepared to take further action if the government of Venezuela persists on its path to impose authoritarian rule on the Venezuelan people.'”

“For a moment,” swooned Lake, “I closed my eyes and thought I was listening to a Weekly Standard editorial meeting.”

Onward to Venezuela!

Mr. Lake, a neoconservative, was loving every moment. In error, he and his kind confuse an expansionist foreign policy with “American exceptionalism.”

It’s not.

As it happens, neocons are in luck. Most Americans know little of the ideas that animated their country’s founding. They’re more likely to hold ideas in opposition to the classical-liberal philosophy of the Founders, and, hence, wish to see the aggrandizement of the coercive, colossal, Warfare State.

That’s just the way things are.

So, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have enlisted the West in “a proxy Sunni-Shia religious war,” Riyadh’s ultimate aim. Donald Trump has been perfectly willing to partake.

After a campaign of “America First,” the president sided with Sunni Islam while demonizing Iran. Iranians have killed zero Americans in terrorist attacks in the US between 1975-2015; Saudi Arabians murdered 2369!

Iranians recently reelected a reformer. Pray tell who elected the Gulf petrostate sheiks?

Moderates danced in the streets of Tehran when President Hassan Rouhani was reelected. Curiously, they’re currently rioting.

If past is prologue, Ron Paul is probably right when he says the CIA is likely meddling in Iranian politics. For the Left and the pseudo-Right, this is a look-away issue. As the left-liberal establishment lectures daily, to question the Central Intelligence Agency—its spooks are also agitating against all vestiges of President Trump’s original “America First” plank—is to “undermine American democracy.”

Besides, “good” Americans know that only the Russians “meddle.” …

… READ THE REST.  How President Trump Normalized Neoconservatism” is now on WND.com.

AND REMEMBER: John Quincy Adams (July 4, 1821) counseled detachment in foreign policy. America “goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher of freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. … She might become the dictatress of the world: she would be no longer the ruler of her own spirit.”

UPDATE (1/5/018):

Let Iranians figure out their own destiny. Wild guess: They want TRADE, not sanctions.

2: How Do You Know You’re A Neocon? You Won’t Hogtie Nikki Haley To Save The World

Iran, Neoconservatism, War, WMD

The Global Village Idiot, neoconservative Nikki Haley, doesn’t want sovereign states to talk behind her back. Even if it’s to avert a nuclear holocaust. Via the Ron Paul Institute:

North and South Korea have agreed to hold high-level talks, to re-establish a direct communication link, and to participate in the coming winter Olympic games. Taken together, it appears a significant step toward reducing tensions on the peninsula and reducing the risk of catastrophic war. You would think the US would be pleased at the developments and hopeful that diplomacy might take over from saber-rattling. But you would be wrong. US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has poured cold water on the developments, screeching that North Korea must first give up its nuclear program before talks can even take place.

* Haley is also Yankee supremacist who, as South Carolina’s governor, did away with Southern heroes and history. That’s very neoconservative.

* With the same oblivion she’s showing the two Koreas, Haley declared that “removing Assad from power was one of a number of priorities for the US.” Hers is Jacobin interventionism. It’s not American and it’s never “America First.”

* Congenital idiots like Haley and her neocon cohort truly believe North Koreans, upon invasion, will come to love her and hate their chubby leader. Not at all. Most people do not wish to be told how to live by foreign busybodies like Haley. And even if North Koreans wanted Americans to subsidize their freedoms with America blood, the duty of an American leader is to Americans First.

A neoconservative will have hastened to condemn a wise and magnanimous man, John F. Kelly, for seeing redeeming qualities in Robert E. Lee.

Robert E. Lee. was an honorable man,” said White House Chief of Staff Mr. Kelly. How dare he! And how right he was. Lee was a great American.

When Lee resigned his commission as the colonel of the 1st U.S. Cavalry in April 1861 and subsequently took command of the state forces of Virginia, and eventually of the armies of the Southern Confederacy, he was only acting to “fight for his state, which 150 years ago was more important than country.”

John F. Kelly is an honorable and wise American.

Allen C. Guelzo, the author of the piece condemning Kelly, writes in the neoconservative, Cultural Marxist tradition, whereby history is painted over with a cheap patina of current political dogma, to conceal traditional, republican virtues of yesteryear.
