In The News – 8 Nov 2018

[Macron] had previously got into trouble while on an official visit to Algeria for saying that France had committed “crimes against humanity” there in the days of colonialism. As his spokeswoman Laurence Haïm pointed out, the problem was not the offense this caused to French nationalists, but to the Jewish community:

What poses a problem is the term “crime against humanity.” There is a monopoly. . . . I think it is generational. In any case, there is a problem on the expression “crime against humanity” which for many people in the Jewish community can only be said relative to the Shoah. [Bold added]

I have a problem with that.  The term “crime against humanity” should not be reserved exclusively for the Jewish holocaust.

Politics and the English Language

This is one of the reasons Trump is winning, and why I hope he’s a Redeemer.

FACEBOOK DELIVERS FOR DEMOCRATS: Erased 2 Billion GOP Page Views in Purge, Eliminated Conservative Content to Suburban Females

Yet another example of how Facebook is altering the social landscape.

Entire US Election System in Question: Fraudulent and Suspicious Activities Reported Nation-wide – And ALWAYS to Democrat’s Benefit

I wasn’t paying much attention to the chaos that was Florida during the 2000 elections when it was happening.  It was Bush vs Gore and I think Bush was winning, but then there was all this drama about hanging chads which was throwing the election to Al Gore.  The US Supreme Court got involved and said that it was Bush who won.  “Selected, not elected” was the accusation against the Bush presidency.

Now, I wonder if the same nonsense that’s going on now was also going on then, that the election in Florida was going to Bush but then the corrupt local Democrats tried to throw the election to Gore.

Navarro tells Wall Street ‘globalist billionaires’ to end ‘shuttle diplomacy’ in U.S.-China trade war

As part of the Chinese government influence operations, globalist billionaires are putting a full-court press on the White House in advance of the G-20 in Argentina. The mission of these unregistered foreign agents … is to pressure this president into some kind of a deal,” he said.

I’ll say it again.  China is a far bigger threat to our country than Russia.

Tucker Carlson Denies Avenatti’s Claim of Alleged Assault, Says Man Called His Daughter a ‘W****’

Why won’t Avenatti return to his home under a rock?  He may have had something with the Stormy Daniel’s affair, but his support for the women alleging Kavanaugh of rape showed him to be an idiot or a liar.  None of their claims stood up to even the tiniest scrutiny.

The lawyer did not provide any evidence for his claims, nor does the video appear to show Carlson assaulting anyone.

Considering how unhinged the Left is becoming, I’m inclined to believe Carlson’s version of events: his daughter is called a whore by some guy, his son confronts the guy and then throws wine in the guy’s face after he admits it.

Maybe Carlson’s son is technically guilty of assault and battery, but where I’m from there’s a thing called “fighting words”.  You don’t call someone’s sister a whore and then double-down on it when confronted about it.

@TuckerCarlson – your stmt about what transpired is an absolute lie. Your daughter nor your son were called those things. The man never admitted it. Your son committed assault and battery.

So according to Avenatti, Carlson’s son just walked up to this guy and threw wine in his face for no reason?  Or is he alleging that it was because this guy is a gay brown immigrant?  And then Carlson got up and yelled at the guy, telling him to get out of the country?  I have a hard time believing that.

In a video Avenatti included in his tweet claiming Carlson “assaulted” the man, Carlson appears to be telling another man to “get the f— out of here”

I made the section bold.  In Avenatti’s tweet he claimed that You told the man to “go back where you came from” before the video starts.  I can see how someone could interpret “get out of here” to mean “go back where you came from” …if you’re an insane person.  Or if you’re twisting someone’s words to fit a political agenda.

Avenatti characterized the country club as being known as “anti-gay, anti-minority, and anti-people of color.”

If the country club is anti-minority and anti-people of color then how did his client get a membership in the first place?

Macron rips nationalism as Trump looks on: ‘Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism’

“Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism,” the French leader said.

“In saying ‘Our interests first, whatever happens to the others,’ you erase the most precious thing a nation can have, that which makes it live, that which causes it to be great and that which is most important: Its moral values.”

What are these “moral values”?  The article doesn’t define them.

  • Self-sufficiency
  • Putting the citizens’ needs ahead of the needs of people in other countries
  • Treating others fairly and equally
  • Expecting others to treat one fairly and equally
  • Immigration based on merit
  • Equality of rights for all citizens and legal immigrants
  • Equality of justice
  • Respect for the right to private property
  • Capitalism is better than socialism.

Those are all moral values which make a country thrive and be great yet they are not threatened by nationalism.

If a country doesn’t put its interests first, then whose interests are to go first?  The only viable answer is other nations.

So the United States is to put other nations’ best interests first?  But the other nations are not obliged to put the United States’ interests first?  Am I getting that right?

That’s a common theme among the looters and the socialists (but I’m being redundant):  You have to take care of me and my needs but I don’t have to consider your needs at all.

It’s that moral value which dies with American nationalism.  And if that’s the moral value which causes a nation to die then I say let it wither on the vine.

Police arrest woman over strawberry contamination

A maximum of 3 years in prison for putting needles into strawberries?  That seems a bit light.  Hopefully, she’ll get 3 years for each strawberry she booby-trapped and it puts her away for the rest of her life.

Trump’s Anti-Iranian Sanctions Waivers Are Strategic, Not Signs Of Weakness

…the truth is that these waivers are highly strategic because of the geopolitical goals that they progressively set out to accomplish.

UK Blatantly Violates Norms of Decent Behavior

Venezuela is a socialist country that’s failing.  In and of itself that’s good, but its economic collapse is hurting the average citizen too.  Why is the US Government contributing to that misery by imposing sanctions?  Are they trying to ignite a coup?

Venezuela has one of the largest oil reserves in the world.  Why are they not using that to get out of their economic problems?  What do they intend to do with the gold they want repatriated?  Will it be used to help the country or enrich the elite?

Either way, it’s not any other country’s business.   There should not be sanctions in the first place, and Venezuela’s gold should be returned to them.

Wait.  What?  Bernie Sanders is backing Snipes now, in spite of the allegations and her clear history of voter fraud?  Why?

And then there’s the democratic lawyers and their antics.
