THE ROOTS OF OUR NEW CIVIL WAR: Tocqueville vs. Gramsci


From John Fonte:
On the surface of American politics, as many have had cause to mention, it appears that the main trends predicted over a decade ago in Francis Fukuyama’s “The End of History?” have come to pass — that ideological (if not partisan) strife has been muted; that there is a general consensus about the most important questions of the day (capitalism, not socialism; democracy, not authoritarianism); and that the contemporary controversies that do exist, while occasionally momentous, are essentially mundane, concerned with practical problem-solving (whether it is better to count ballots by hand or by machine) rather than with great principles. 
And yet, I would argue, all that is true only on the surface. For simultaneously in the United States of the past few decades, recurring philosophical concepts have not only remained “in the air,” but have proved influential, at times decisive, in cultural and legal and moral arguments about the most important questions facing the nation. 
Indeed: Prosaic appearances to the contrary, beneath the surface of American politics an intense ideological struggle is being waged between two competing worldviews. I will call these “Gramscian” and “Tocquevillian” after the intellectuals who authored the warring ideas — the twentieth-century Italian thinker Antonio Gramsci, and, of course, the nineteenth-century French intellectual Alexis de Tocqueville. 
The stakes in the battle between the intellectual heirs of these two men are no less than what kind of country the United States will be in decades to come.

How Pervasive is the Political Class?

June 17, 2010, Congressman Tom Price, Chairman of the Republican Study Committee

Stop reckless spending

America’s $13 trillion national debt did not appear out of thin air. This massive liability is the result of Washington’s refusal to keep spending in line with revenues. Since 1961, the federal government has run a deficit in every year but five. Four of those all-too-rare surpluses occurred from 1998 to 2001 under Republican control of Congress, the branch of government which decides these matters.
Lately, deficit spending has reached previously unimaginable levels. Last year’s red ink topped $1.4 trillion, more than tripling the previous record. The picture going forward looks just as horrific.

Sept. 29, 2017, Secretary of Health and Human Services, Tom Price
Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price says he is reimbursing U.S. taxpayers for his official travel on private charter planes.
In a statement released on Thursday, he said, “Today, I will write a personal check to the US Treasury for the expenses of my travel on private charter planes. The taxpayers won’t pay a dime for my seat on those planes.”
The expense for his seat on those planes comes out to $51,887.31, according to an HHS spokesperson.
Politico has reported that the total cost of the private jets Price flew on was more than $400,000 and included trips to places where he has friends and family. Price is not covering the cost for support staff and others who flew with him on those charter planes, staff who otherwise would have flown commercial.
“What the Secretary has done is say that while all of this travel was approved by legal and HHS officials, the Secretary has heard the taxpayers’ concerns and wants to be responsive to them,” the HHS spokesperson said. “That’s why he’s taking the unprecedented step of reimbursing the government for his share of the travel.”
Either Price was a liar of the kind we have seen in the house and senate over the ACTUAL seriousness in replacing Obamacare (statements by McCarthy, Cantor), or he has been corrupted by his own ‘importance’.
And this is JUST ONE. SO if you want to know why Lois Lerner is running around without concern, or why the Jones Act wasn’t circumvented on day one, or why foreign policy is running counter to every promise Trump made … the answers are right in front of you.

Why is the DOJ Blocking the Extradition of a Clinton-Soros Money Man?


From Gateway Pundit:
Why is the DOJ Blocking the Extradition of a Clinton-Soros Money Man? 
What does the Chinese Intelligence turncoat know about the Deep State and why are they protecting him? 
Miles Kwok has been convicted of multi-billion dollar financial crimes in both the United States and China after working as a Chinese intelligence asset and receiving the three highest medals from Chinese intelligence for providing surveillance on US political figures. 
While working for Chinese Intel, Kwok was tied to political bribes, kidnappings, misappropriation of funds and alleged abuse of women – including charges of rape and confinement. 
Then, however, Kwok turned on his spymasters and stole approximately $8 billion dollars from the Chinese State in a sophisticated financial crime. 
During his time in the United States, Kwok has emerged as a major bundler and fundraiser for Hillary Clinton. He was seen at the Clinton Global Initiative Conference in New York and has been seen dining at Cipriani at the Sherry Netherland where Kwok lives in a $4.8 million-dollar apartment with George Soros. 
Soros has been a major funder of the Clintons and has funded various front organizations, think tanks and charities who utilize violence and disruption in their attempts to destabilize President Trump. Their goal is to topple Democratically elected governments, particularly in Eastern Europe. 
Soros was, of course, a Nazi collaborator. Kwok has become a sticking point in US-Sino negotiations in North Korea. Chinese President Xi Jinping raised the issue of Kwok’s extradition in formal negotiations at Mar Lago. 
Dr. Henry Kissinger has argued the chances of continued and increased Chinese cooperation in disarming North Korea would be enhanced if Kwok was extradited. 
Not surprisingly, leading the charge to fight Kwok’s extradition to China is Democrat super lawyer David Boise who represented Al Gore before the US Supreme Court in the 2000 Presidential recount.

It’s actually UNBELIEVABLE- the Republicans STILL don’t get it

NYT:
Trent Lott, a former Senate Republican leader, was blunt: “Every Republican senator had better get prepared for a challenge from the far right.”
The position that there is a single political entity in Washington, that this entity consists of Wall St Democrats, and Corporate, Chamber of Commerce Republicans which thinks IT knows better than ignorant voters, and thinks IT had better act in that fashion, for what IT regards as the national interest(but is their own), is ANYTHING but a position of the far right.

Networks Refused to Show Angry, Booing NFL Fans..


Networks Refused to Show Angry, Booing NFL Fans..
With President Donald Trump's attacks against protesting NFL players still reverberating, the league's TV partners decided to air live coverage of the national anthem before Week 3 games. 
Those partners left out a key element of the coverage: crowd shots of angry fans. Networks typically do not televise the national anthem except for the Super Bowl and other special occasions, but they recognized there would be intense viewer interest this past weekend. Some fans, if they reacted at all, happily clapped and cheered during protests, but others did not, and they angrily let their home teams know it. 
The audio mics picked up the boos. Yet the TV networks mostly avoided crowd shots Sunday, so there was never a chance for viewers to see fans jeering players.

Limited freedom for Saudi slaves

I wrote this yesterrday:
Let's say that in the near-future in Saudi Arabia:
A) A woman wants to get a driver's license.
B) A woman wants to drive to another city in the country.
C) A woman wants to cross international borders by driving from Saudi Arabia to Bahrain.
Does she still need the permission of her guardian? If she does, then this whole "WOMAN CAN NOW DRIVE!" law is utter nonsense.
B) and C) will be illegal. Can't let those slaves get too far!

Today, we get this information thanks to Bare Naked Islam:

For Saudi women, if your age is under 30, then driving is still illegal.

If you're 30 and older, then you REQUIRE the permission of your father, brother, husband or some other male family member to drive a car!

And then only within the limits of your town or city.

While wearing a strict uniform.

During scheduled times.

LOL.

The fruits of multiculturalism

Raping a child is okay for certain people in Sweden:
Despite clearly contradicting Swedish law, underage immigrant wives have been repeatedly allowed to stay with their husbands by Sweden's local municipalities, which defend their decisions by citing humanitarian issues.
Those laws are for the White people of Sweden.
At present, Swedish legislation on child marriages seems to be applied differently in different municipalities. Earlier this year, the Administrative Court of Växjö ruled that a 14-year-old pregnant girl could be placed with her adult husband's immigrant family, arguing that this was part of their culture. Remarkably, both the girl and her spouse were highly critical of the Swedish law banning underage marriage.
Of course. They have no qualms about taking thousands of kronor from stupid Swedes. Yet, they have no intention of following the laws of the same dirty infidels. Underage marriage is merely one of the topics.

What about:
  1. Marrying a cousin?
  2. Female genital mutilation?
  3. Beating a wife?
  4. Gender segregation?
  5. Strict hijab?
  6. Banning dogs?
  7. Halaal foods only? etc.
Will the Swedes roll over, murder their own culture, and simply hand their nation over to these savages? Or will they wake up in time to save their nation?

News Media: Woman "Deathly Allergic To Dogs Forcibly Pushed Off Plane



From Gayhoo News:
Another plane booting video is gaining traction online months after the violent United incident. A woman was forcibly removed from a Southwest flight Tuesday, but this time around the passenger is getting very little sympathy online. 
The woman, identified as 46-year-old Anila Daulatzai from Baltimore, had complained about two dogs on her flight from Baltimore-Washington International Airport to Los Angeles. 
She said she was deathly allergic, but when crew informed her they couldn't remove the dogs, one of which was a service dog, she was told to leave the plane. That's when things went south. 
After the woman couldn't show medical papers about her allergies and refused to leave the plane, law enforcement arrived to remove her, Southwest said in a statement. 
She's since been charged with disorderly conduct, failure to obey a reasonable and lawful order, disturbing the peace, obstructing and hindering a police officer and resisting arrest, but released by authorities, according to KTLA.
So who is Anila Daulatzai?

Why, she just happens to be a Harvard Professor of Women's Studies and Islamic Studies.



In other words, she's a double winner.

Note that in the video, she's not wearing a Hijab, but in regular life she does.

IMO, this was a setup. This lady is perhaps mildly allergic to dogs. However, she doesn't like dogs because she's a Muslim and Muslims have a problem with dogs.

This is an Islamic incursion ... IMO.

At a certain point in the video, she says, "I need to close my pants."

Let's see if her incursion is trumped up into a kind of sexual abuse of a Muslima. Look at the way they disrespected her culture by manhandling her. Vicious Islamophobic Cops.

Also, at another point in the video she dramatically cantillates, "My Dad has a surgery tomorrow."

So yes, they disrespect her Islamic presence with dogs - which she is also deathly allergic to -, they undo her pants and manhandle her violating her Sanctified presence before her pedophillic god Allah, and they violate her Islamic family, the circle from which all violence emanates.

I wonder what other forms of trouble this woman might have caused in the past.

Or maybe I should have more sympathy.

I'm open.

-----------

Very first - and highest rated - public comment at Gayhoo News:
If being allergic to dogs is a life threatening situation for her, then run away from there fast. Why did she have to be dragged from there if she knew that her life was in danger?
That's a really good question, isn't it?

The Wall Street Journal Gives Evidence They Just Don’t Get What the Nation is Thinking

Amid the incredible demonstrations that keep happening in the 3,084 of 3,141 counties of the USA, the media, the political class and those that claim to be observers of objective reality continue to evince utter confusion as they sit surrounded by the detritus of their Bastille.

Senator Luther Strange on his loss to Roy Moore last night, despite GOPe and President Trump’s support, and personal appearance,
“We’re dealing with a political environment that I’ve never had any experience with”
No, you haven’t.
As if this needs a coda, here is the Wall Street Journal
Mr. Trump’s inability to deliver victory to Mr. Strange suggests he won’t be able to reliably harness the antiestablishment political movement that he unleashed within the GOP and rode to the White House in the 2016 campaign.
The movement is far larger than Trump. Trump was only the personification of this movement in 2016. The public has recognized that Corporate, Chamber of Commerce Republicans, and Wall Street Democrats are the same party, and serve the same constituency, and it’s NOT THEM.
US Steel served notice of the birth of this movement in 1979 (J Carter) when they made plain they would NOT be able to compete against Japanese GOVT-INDUSTRY export techniques (dumping/subsidies) with steel (which, of course was just ONE area they executed their national export plans)
Automation has played a part in this, but make no mistake, the performance of (especially the) German, Japanese, Chinese, Maylasian, etc economies and unemployment there in the manufacturing sector PER CAPITA by worker makes objectively clear, it is the export of challenging and good jobs overseas that is the major component driving the forces causing peaceful rebellion here. Mexican workers for Ford avg $8/hour. US workers, $58. PHYSICS ENTERS.
The question is how all this will resolve.
We can have massive change within BOTH parties.
We can have 3 or 4 parties.
We can see the movement die, and with it, watch declining voting %’s (and what that REALLY means, grow) as the entrenched executive depts, legislative staffs and paraphernalia, and hangers on, such as media, lobbyists, and huge multinational corporations grind away at the determination of an angry public as they try to pay their bills every month.
We can have revolts break out. In both Rural areas as disgust breaks over the top of restraint, and urban areas as Baltimore after Baltimore occur for all sorts of reasons.
There is no question that the McConnells, Ryans, Schumers, and Pelosi are confused utterly. Celebration should occur over the retirements we see like Bob Corker. Let’s have MORE. It’s Darwin.
Things will either change peacefully or not, OR we enter permanent dispirited decline as more and more disadvantaged people of all colors, races and religions chase fewer and fewer federal resources, doled out by a few concerned only with remaining among those who dole out those resources.
By the way, Snopes rather revealed themselves with that map above, by claiming it is misleading.
The map is the map. By and large the majority in urban areas which are few but populous voted D, and rural areas, which is the vast proportion of the nation, voted for Trump. Snopes just DOESN’T LIKE THE MAP. Sunlight hits.
What tipped the election was the realization that Trump had recognized the MAIN PROBLEM

Sooner or later, THAT hits everyone
Everywhere
And working at Dunkin and Walmart, and BJ’s for 45 hours a week, total does not equal 40 hours a week making motherboards for Gateway, or building Oldsmobiles when you don’t even show up as unemployed.

Antifa: America Under Siege

A new documentary film.
The communist movement known as Antifa (short for Anti-Fascist Action) has sparked violence across the nation. In the wake of their battling despicable white supremacist in Charlottesville, Antifa has begun to gain mainstream popularity. 
But unbeknownst to much of the public, the vast majority of Antifa violence isn't targeted at genuine fascists, but mainstream conservatives and civilians. With help from those who have encountered Antifa, including Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, Lauren Southern, Jack Posobiec, and Steve Deace, conservative author Trevor Loudon guides us through the history and ideas behind the Antifa movement, starting with Leon Trotsky and going all the way through the events in Berkeley, CA and Charlottesville, VA. 
“Antifa” is the third episode in the "America Under Siege" documentary web-series from Dangerous Documentaries (a project of the Capital Research Center) and Cohesion Films. Each episode profiles the influence of radical Marxists on various segments of American society.

Hmm: NBC: Bethesda Mystery: Investigators Probe Site of Fire, Death, "Mysterious Tunnels Found"


NBC: Bethesda Mystery: Investigators Probe Site of Fire, Death
News4's Chris Gordon has the latest from the scene of a fire and a death in Bethesda more than two weeks ago. Mysterious tunnels were found.
[Note: no written report at link - only video which reveals at end the fire occurred on September 10th. The identities of the survivor and deceased not provided in the video report which creates the potential for links to 9/11 .]

The following article identifies the surviving resident as WUSA9: "He said 26-year-old Daniel Beckwitt lives in the home."
******
Other recent articles state the surviving victim is 31 years old...not 26. The above link may be mistaken about age due to dated reports of Beckwitt's prior arrest(s). 
This link to reddit states link was submitted 4 years prior to post which seems to resolve the difference in age.

******
WUSA9: "They transported a 31-year-old man to the hospital for smoke inhalation. He is expected to be recover."

DCW50: "According to Montgomery County Fire officials, two young men were inside. One was a 31-year-old who was able to escape and alert firefighters of his friend trapped inside."

Location of fire identified here: 5212 Danbury Road, Bethesda, MD
*****
Prior arrest reports 2013:
NewsGazette: "On April 6, Beckwitt had ordered some material that can be used to make thermite, which is used to destroy computer hard drives..."
"On April 10, authorities returned 
after a report of a suspicious device at Beckwitt's apartment, he said. It turned out to be PVC pipe fashioned into self-contained breather apparatus (known as SCBA), similar to what firefighters use during a fire,..."

In March, Comey and McCabe Blocked the arrest of Imran Awan's wife as she was fleeing the country to Pakistan


TruePunditExclusive: In March, Comey and McCabe Blocked the arrest of Imran Awan's wife as she was fleeing the country to Pakistan
Alvi Awan was suspected of helping swindle $283,000 from banks and was busted carrying over $12,400 in undocumented cash when the FBI caught up with her at Dulles International Airport in March. 
But incredibly Awan — the wife of Imran Awan, the IT specialist and con man employed by Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was arrested last week for bank fraud — was never detained or forced to stay in the United States. Her arrest in fact was blocked by then-FBI Director James Comey and then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, FBI sources said. 
So federal agents and Capitol Police watched as the former Democratic congressional aide and suspected bank fraudster stepped onto Qatar Air1ines Flight 708 to Doha, Qatar, on her way to Lahore, Pakistan with her three daughters, bulging luggage and $12,400 in undocumented cash — a federal crime in itself. Awan had essentially been given a license to disappear from the clutches of US law enforcement, never likely to return to the United States. She was in the wind, courtesy of the FBI. 
“This was a call from the top, Comey and McCabe,” a well-placed FBI agent said. “Anyone else would have been held and with that cash she didn’t declare she could have been locked up. The agents at Dulles wanted to hold her but they were told to stand down.” 
Comey has since been fired and McCabe currently is Acting FBI Director until the new FBI director is sworn in. 
The lead FBI case agent at Dulles was Brandon Merriman who has been on the job for a little more than a year and was investigating Imran and Alvi Awan’s bank schemes. FBI sources said he did not have the political juice to plead for Awan’s arrest and as an agent, there is little he could have done to keep Awan in the states since his bosses decided to put her in the wind. 
Merriman also put together the arrest warrant for Imran Awan in July. A portion of that warrant is included below where the FBI agent acknowledged he knew that when Alvi Awan stepped onto that flight she would never return to the United States.
---------
An interesting string of tweets this evening by George Webb suggesting multiple false identities assumed by Hina Alvi, as well as some additional identities linked to Imran Awan's properties, one in particular should raise the hair on the back of the necks of those familiar with the story of Stephen Coughlin's exit from the Pentagon...mentions "Hisham
Doubt Webb has any notes on this nefarious "Hesham" from 2008:

Questions for the Pentagon: Who is Hesham Islam
*****

FWIW, I do not have accounts at YouTube or Twitter or Facebook etc...but Webb may be interested to check if there is any link between Hesham (Hisham) Islam and Imran Awan, if it could be passed to him.

President Obama's team sought NSA intel on thousands of Americans during the 2016 election


President Obama's team sought NSA intel on thousands of Americans during the 2016 election
The Obama administration distributed thousands of intelligence reports with the unredacted names of U.S. residents during the 2016 election.

During his final year in office, President Obama's team significantly expanded efforts to search National Security Agency intercepts for information about Americans, distributing thousands of intelligence reports across government with the unredacted names of U.S. residents during the midst of a divisive 2016 presidential election.

The data, made available this week by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, provides the clearest evidence to date of how information accidentally collected by the NSA overseas about Americans was subsequently searched and disseminated after President Obama loosened privacy protections to make such sharing easier in 2011 in the name of national security. A court affirmed his order.

Obviously, Totally Planned Out

What an insult to the Marines they invited to bear the flag.


================

midnight rider with a personal note to this story:

Every year my son-in-law (in Alaska) flies to the lower 48 for a weekend and meets his college roommate for a Seahawks game, his original home team.

This year it happened to be this game in Nashville.

This past weekend also happened to be my oldest grandson's 6th birthday. Since he is also a huge football fan dad decided to take him along on the trip as a big part of his present.

The kid was beyond thrilled. HIS FIRST NFL GAME!

From the pictures I have seen (haven't had a chance to talk to him yet) he had a blast. It will take a long time to wipe that grin from his face.

But my point is this.

It saddens angers and disgusts me that this happened. True that at his age I doubt he realized what was going on.

But here they are, his dad having spent the round trip airfare tickets & accommodations for not one but 2 seats from Anchorage to Nashville

for the kid to see this. A bunch of overpaid overfed grown men acting like spoiled pampered self indulgent insolent little brats with less manners than my grandson.

And putting a blemish on my grandson's birthday. And his first real NFL game.

How many times was that repeated this weekend across the country (and London, too).

Not only is it a disrespect to our Country and Flag but also to the fans who come and pay to see them
play football. Not act like someone who didn't get their ice cream cone flavor.

Unless and until these little crybabies (oh the President said something so mean) start acting like grown men I am done with professional football.

BREAK UP THE NFL’S CORRUPT DEM MONOPOLY


From Daniel Greenfield at Front Page:
An Army recruit starts off with a salary under $20,000. Thousands of active duty military personnel are on food stamps. 
Millions of veterans rely on them to feed their families and themselves. That’s how we treat the best of us. 
Here’s how we treat the worst of us. An NFL rookie’s minimum salary is $465,000. And the majority of NFL players are usually bankrupt a few years after retirement because they blew through most of their money. 
Dozens of NFL players are arrested every year on charges ranging from murder to rape to animal abuse. 2017 was a banner year for the NFL with three times as many arrests as last year. Along with the usual drunk driving and disorderly conduct arrests, there were 7 arrests for assault/battery, 6 for drugs and 5 for domestic violence. 
The Seattle Seahawks announced that they weren’t going to “participate in the national anthem” because of the “injustice that has plagued people of color in this country”. While they lost that game, they are one of the top ranked teams in arrests. 
Alongside the Los Angeles Rams, the Green Bay Packers and the New York Jets, all of whom showed some solidarity with the anti-American protests, these top NFL criminal teams have racked up arrests for domestic violence, drugs, DUI and assault and battery. 
Is it any wonder they think the justice system is unfair? They’re criminals.

Tom Brady's Comments Show Trump's Schtick Has Lost It's Resonance


Trump's schtick has been that he is the tough guy in the Culture War. He was willing to take on anyone who would fight against us. He asked that we just give him the power, and told us he would vanquish our enemies.

It hasn't exactly worked out like that.

Trump has alienated his base - people like me - who voted for the man who told us he would build a Wall on the border, that it was his first priority, it would be the FIRST thing he did when he got into office.

When people scoffed, mocked and told him he couldn't - he wouldn't - his response was, "THE WALL JUST GOT A LITTLE HIGHER."

At first, I didn't like Trump's schtick. I thought he was a blowhard. But then, the techniques he employed to back up the schtick, the winning strategies, the ineffable ability to control the public conversation, and to sway the will of powerful men, convinced me he was, indeed, a force to be reckoned with.

He was a man who could, and would, build that wall.

But Trump has let us down on DACA and The Wall. Personally, I do not care much about DACA. I think The Wall is the priority. If someone would just build the fucking wall, and stem the endless tide of illegal immigration, I would more than willingly settle the situation with those who are already here.

I already live with them. They are, for the most part, perfectly nice people, and many of them do contribute a hell of a lot to our society.

But nice people doing nice things is not what a society is made up of. Societies are built on the foundation of law, and when the foundation gets weak, because of the endless heavy-treading of those who would stampede across the law, then the foundation needs to be reinforced.

And in this case, that means, following the law and building a wall to keep those who would break the law out.

If Trump would do that, he would have the will of the people behind him. He hasn't done it, nor has he shown any evidence that it is his first priority, and so he has lost the will of the people.

We are in war. We are in no mood to be lied to by our leaders, especially a leader like Trump, behind whom we rallied, in whom we have placed our hope.

Our Hope, and our Will, and the time and effort we spent rallying behind him, defending him, and exhorting on his behalf, in the face of a relentless tide of hatred, THOSE ARE NOT SMALL THINGS.

THEY ARE THE TIME AND ENERGY OF OUR VERY LIVES.

Trump has given us reason to believe he does not intend to hold up his end of the bargain.

Today we see that New England Patriots Quarterback (Team Leader) Tom Brady released a statement condemning Trump's statements on the firing of football players who would take a knee:
Yeah, I certainly disagree with what he said. I thought it was just divisive,” Brady said. “Like I said, I just want to support my teammates. I am never one to say, ‘Oh, that is wrong. That is right.’ I do believe in what I believe in. I believe in bringing people together and respect and love and trust. Those are the values that my parents instilled in me. That is how I try and live every day. I have been blessed to be in locker rooms with guys all over the United States over the course of my career. Some of my great friends are from Florida, Virginia, New York, Montana, Colorado, Texas. The one thing about football is it brings so many guys together — guys you would never have the opportunity to be around. Whether it was in college, and all the way into the pros. We’re all different, we’re all unique. That is what makes us all special.”
Many Trump supporters would be inclined to think, "Oh, here is a another rich, status quo guy, afraid to speak out against the overwhelming media power behind the Black Lives Matter movement which animates the Knee-Taking National Anthem protests.

That is not what is going on here.

Read Brady's words carefully. As Quarterback, he is the team leader. His job, his responsibility in life when he reports to the office, is to lead his team to victory. He is VERY GOOD at his job.

His teammates are divided up along political lines because of Trump's comments. Tom Brady is saying he can not lead a divided team.

Tom Brady, and the Owner of the Patriots, Robert Kraft, have been VOCAL TRUMP SUPPORTERS.

I will leave Kraft out of this discussion, because I do not respect a man who would allow his Franchise, his Brand, to be highjacked to run veritable commercials for Black Lives Matter (which is what I see these National Anthem protests as being).

But Tom Brady is saying, here, he just wants to win. And Trump isn't helping. He is hurting. He is making Tom Brady's life harder. He is making the lives of the Patriots football team harder. He is making it hard for them to do their job.

What kind of leader of a nation does that? What kind of leader is Trump?

Now, think about it? We are in a War. It's a Culture War, but it is a War. It very well could be a prelude to a very real and violent Civil War. Brady was a vocal Trump supporter, even during the campaign, and after it, through all the relentless hate-spewing. But now, Brady is balking.

If Trump were building that fucking wall, do you think Brady would be balking?

I do not think he would.

There are things more important that going to the office and doing our jobs. There are things more important than football. Tom Brady showed us he believed that by simply supporting during the hate avalanche of the last year.

Trump took up the mantle of the Will of the People. Trump promised us he would do the things we wanted. Trump made us all believe he would, and we put enormous effort into his win. We rallied behind him, even as that rallying meant an increase in the hate directed at us on a daily basis.

We are in a War, and we stood up, and our standing up increased the enemy fire aimed directly at us.

And Trump sat down.

Trump has become a barking dog on the sidelines of our nation at this point. Trump is no longer acting as our leader. He has abandoned us on the battle field.

His barking is only serving to call attention to us at this point. He is only increasing the hatred aimed at us, and he is not giving us anything in return.

This is a massive betrayal of the Hope and trust we placed in him. It is a betrayal of our efforts.

The reality of this betrayal is only beginning to set in with Trump supporters. Tom Brady's statement is evidence that those in the mainstream of Trump support are beginning to realize they have been abandoned by their leader.

People are understanding what's happening. It's coming in a slow, building wave, that will become a tidal wave.

Trump is set to reap a terrible blowback. All the energy, that we put behind Trump, will come back against Trump if he breaks his contract with us to build the wall.

I would not want to be Donald Trump when that Tidal Wave comes rushing.

How bad is the LCS? U.S. Navy Really Might Bring Back Old Frigates

The Perry Class frigates, out of the 1970’s were good anti submarine platforms (they were designed with one key mission being to get US reinforcements to Europe in the face of Soviet subs), with some anti air defense, helicopters(anti-surface, and anti sub), and a 3 inch gun. It was built to typical naval construction requirements and demonstrated (USS Stark) it could take major missile hits, as in PLURAL and survive.

The LCS a VERY fast ship was designed to have ‘modular’ mission payloads swapped depending on the mission at hand, including mine sweeping (the payload for which is not deployable yet), has helicopters and a 57mm gun (~2 inches) and NOTHING else. Experiments are ongoing to equip the LCS with some anti air and short range anti ship capability. The LCS is aluminum hulled (weight) with steel both in contact with saltwater, and already have shown corrosion issues over dissimilar metals (a problem which any chemist could have told Austal and the Navy, cannot be avoided unless well planned for). They are not thought to be able to take a hit and continue.

Today the anti air mission is conceived to be a defense which may have to be against a saturation attack (many missiles and planes). The FFG-7 Perry’s have (if they are still so armed, some of them are not) a single arm missile launcher (for SM-1 missiles) and old radars.
Fine fix.
This is where worry over the F-35 reasserts
