Crossroads

 

The world is spiraling perceivably out of control. Europe is reducing itself into an echo of its once dominance. Canada has begun her graceful exit from anything more than a footnote. Russia is desperately holding on to things from her periods past. China is the bursting powerhouse without an ample provider of direction or purpose. Japan is as she most often has been outside of World War II, a region which defies definition and insulated by her restrictive immigration policies. South America is still most often between periods of economic power followed by leftist folly bankrupting once powerful nations and eventually back to productivity only to sink once again. Argentina and Venezuela are two prominent examples. Cuba is relatively impotent with only one thing to offer, proximity to the United States. Mexico has about the same situation with slightly more open governance. The Far East sits in the shadow of China simply sleeping hoping not to catch the giant to the north’s attention, except for North Korea which is led by an unbalanced megalomaniac. Still, the most they could prove to be is a small blip before being crushed if they ever did attack anyone. This leaves three main powers, one established, one growing and one for the distant future. The established is, of course, the United States, the growing are the Islamic powers and the future power is central and southern Africa. All of these are currently swirling towards a series of collisions.

 

We thought the main front would once again be Europe, but that assessment required being reconsidered. Europe will be where the initial confrontations will come, but the secular left will simply turn over and surrender. Should there be a last stand for Christianity within Europe, it will come from the nations of Eastern Europe where being under the choking hold of Communism until around 1989, their freedom brought to them a return to their former religious beliefs and a reestablishing of the Eastern Orthodox Church. Just as the remains of the Roman Empire was the Eastern Roman Empire, which was also known as Byzantium or Byzantine Empire, Europe is once again split along a central line where Western Europe is sliding into a coma while Eastern Europe is still awakening from a long oppression. Will the confrontation be any different this time or will Eastern Europe prove just as incapable opposition to an Islamic wave attempting to take control of Europe. The immigrant influx of Muslims from northern Africa and Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and other Middle East countries with oppressive governance is slowly consuming Western Europe where they are being welcomed without any controls or real opposition. The initial laying of the welcome mat was placed out by Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany who promised to take up to 800,000 refugees from the Middle East and was almost immediately inundated by waves of immigrants. As has been noted by ourselves and numerous others, the vast majority of these immigrants are men between 18 and 50 unaccompanied by wives or children. Such an influx historically has been called an invasion, not normal immigration.

 

Eastern European nations have wisely closed their borders and are only allowing immigrants who board trains which pass through their territories to ride straight on through and are refused from exiting the trains. Many, even the majority are heading for Germany and Sweden as these are the two nations with the highest support structure for unemployed people with minimal requirements as these immigrants are not seeking jobs, they seek the guaranteed good life compared to their former homes and imposing Islamic rule on their new homes. This would appear to be not an advantageous change as it would bring to their new homes the exact same systems which proved so disastrous to their former nations. Still, that is what they are comfortable with living under and it would provide them with the comfort of the imposing of a system which is close to identical to their former homes. Freedom is a burdensome formula under which to live as it makes each person responsible for their own survival and allows them to choose their own path and requires effort. This is what resulted from the Judeo-Christian ethic which brought the modern democratic nations into the industrial age and beyond making them the leaders in technology, science, and weaponry allowing Europe to be the most powerful force in the world opening up much of the road to a modern existence through their spreading over the entire planet during the Age of Discovery where the European nations established empires spreading throughout the world leaving a web of commerce and bringing great wealth to the Europeans. This spread technology from Europe to the rest of the world advancing many cultures from barely beyond hunter-gatherers or early agricultural age into the modern age providing these populations with great opportunities if they were able to receive education permitting their understanding.

 

After a pair of World Wars ravaged Europe, their age of colonization came to an end. The last remaining colonies slowly demanded and took their independence from their European masters. Since this end of the age, European society has largely refuted their Christianity and adopted the newest religion of secular humanism which places the onus for the destruction of the Earth on their own society and its use of fossil fuels. They believe in many cases that humankind is a blight on the planet and that the planet would be so much better off without people. This is represented by their negative reproduction rates which are well below replacement levels. This is the sign of a society which has entered into its death throes. This is also the main driving reasoning behind the opening of their borders to refugees in the hopes they will replace the children they never had in the work force. The problem is that a fairly large percentage of the immigrants are not coming to take jobs as much as to collect benefits while plotting to impose Islamic rule over Europe. This was what we had thought might lead to an initial confrontation between the Islamic conquerors and the European indigenous population in defending their free societies. The indigenous Europeans in Western Europe do not appear to be interested in retaining their former free society and are willing to allow the Islamic takeover of their nations providing it does not alter their life as the leaders. They are in for a great surprise as the leadership of these nations will be amongst the initial casualties when Islam versus European free society comes to a head. The struggle for retaining their freedom will be left to the small but not insignificant children, that is, providing they do not just sell out and join the Islamic push in order to go along to get along. They may be in for a surprise when their conversion reaches a point where they are tested. Our advice for those who believe this would be a wise choice, start now memorizing the Quran and attending the Mosque which is the largest within your city or area and familiarize yourselves with the teachings of the Imams.

 

Canada and the United States are just as vulnerable as is Europe to the immigration challenge. We recently read a disturbing article reporting on the progress of Islamist interests within Canada and their alignment with the far left in what will prove to be a self-defeating alliance for the far left. This same alliance exists throughout much of the free world including Europe, especially Britain and the European Union, the United States and Canada. There had been such an alliance in Israel and there are remnants of the effects of their joining in many leftist policies especially those who continue to support the “Two State Solution” which requires surrendering large portions of lands to the Palestinian Authority (PA) in exchange for promises of peace. This concept has lost much validity as many from the PA and others from within the society currently ruled by Fatah which controls the PA governance; actually, Mahmoud Abbas is the President for Life in the thirteenth year of his four-year term which began in 2005. Even the majority of those on the left and even the far leftists have realized that doing so would not bring peace and only serve to arm the Islamist interest with a permanent base from which to work to destroy Israel and murder her people through terrorism and launching rockets into Israeli cities. This was brought to the fore by Hamas after they took control of Gaza in a bloody coup replacing the PA after which they have worked steadily attempting to produce as much destruction onto any part of Israel which they could terrorize. This has led to a number of wars which Israel decided would be limited engagements which has only served to provide Hamas with the feeling of invincibility and empowered them even further. This has led to an ever-increasing support for Hamas which is reported to have topped 80% with the youth coming from their education system, more of an indoctrination system, leading the charge to destroy Israel and support the Islamist propaganda and their Islamist supremacist ideology. This has been behind the constant rioting and launching of incendiary balloons, kites and even attempted use of live birds such as the falcon in the picture below. The use and murder of such a beautiful and proud bird is just a further representation of the contempt for life held by these Islamist terrorists. One of the messages broadcast by Hamas run television includes a quote stating, “From the Al-Qassam Brigades to the Zionist soldiers: The Al-Qassam Brigades love death more than you love life.” This broadcast is just one of the times this message has been used as it boosts the followers often giving them the needed boost to commit suicide attacks against Israelis.

So, that concludes our quick and broad summary of the world which will be involved in any future conflict and now we will try to look into our crystal ball and look into the future. The threat of Islam is going to continue to grow. The world very well could be in the leading edge of their next attempt by Islam to enlarge their regions of control. Their initial conquest came from 622 AD through to 750 AD as shown in the top map reaching as far as Tours, France before being stopped by Charles the Hammer Martel. This was how their empire remained with their next evolution coming from within when a small tribe from northeastern Turkey known as the Ottomans which led to the Ottoman Empire shown in the middle map. The Spanish Inquisition was responsible for the pushing of Islam from the Iberian Peninsula in 1492, the same date as Columbus making his initial voyage to the New World. The Ottoman Empire replaced the Caliphate and faced a series of wars which ate away at their empire as shown in the bottom map and which was finally destroyed when they allied with the Austrian-Hungarian Empire and Germany in World War I. This led to the Mandate System and the carving up of the Ottoman Empire, Austrian-Hungarian Empire and Germany creating modern Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Northern Africa including Israel which was granted their set aside in the San Remo Conference which defined the Mandate System which was adopted by the League of Nations and then taken up for enforcement by Article 80 of the United Nations Charter.

Now back to the future and looking at what the next attempt at expansion of Islam will provide or what it might cost. There are a few points which need to be stated to provide more of a background which includes the United States mainly. The initial conflict began under the most isolationist President, Thomas Jefferson, who when facing ever higher tributes demands from the Barbary Pirates sent the Navy and Marines who forced an agreement ending the intercepting of United States shipping and most of the pirating and taking of sailors as slaves of European ships as well. After the war with England in 1812, the Barbary Pirates decided that the United States would be weakened and started taking sailors once more. This led to the Second Barbary Wars which again ended this practice. Then, as part of the Spanish American War, the United States faced attacks from the Moro natives in the Philippines which were Muslim. This revolt was put down by General Blackjack Pershing who was reputed, but unproven, to have used some questionable tactics. President George H. W. Bush (Bush I) engaged in a war with Saddam Hussein in Iraq War I in the 1990s. Then President George W. Bush (Bush II) engaged in wars with Islamic nations after the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon in Afghanistan and once again in Iraq where this time Saddam Hussein was overthrown. Then there were the attacks during President Barack Obama continuing in Afghanistan and then including Libya after the Benghazi attack on the Consulate and the urging of the overthrow of Sunni governments in what was called the Arab Spring which more resembled the Arab Winter by the time it completely failed in Syria and Egypt ended up removing the resultant Muslim Brotherhood led government after the overthrow of President Mubarak. President Trump has continued with these interventions and aided the Kurds in their fight with the Islamic State. These have awakened the Islamic nations with two centers of power within Islam which are again fighting one another. This is another conflict between the main groups in Islam, the Sunni, and their longstanding opposition which consists of approximately 10% of Islam, the Shiites. The Sunni center of power is held in a loose alliance between Saudi Arabia and Egypt while the Shiite center of power is Iran which still sees themselves as the modern Persian Empire. Iran is allied with Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza, Hezballah in Lebanon and who are allied to back Bashir al-Assad in his civil war in Syria which was a result of the Arab Spring efforts of President Obama. Iran is also supporting the Houthi revolt to take control of Yemen. The Iranian aim has been to establish a Shiite Crescent across the Middle East using Iran, Syria and Lebanon so they have connections to the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea shown in the map below. Part of the Iranian tactic is to envelop Saudi Arabia from Iran to the north and Yemen to the south. Iran also is attempting to take control of two vital waterways, the Straight of Hormuz and the Straight of Bab-el-Mandeb. The first controls the shipping lane for most of the oil from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait while the second would control the exit from the Red Sea controlling the Suez Canal as well as the Israeli southern port of Eilat. This would provide Iran with the ability to cut off all trade between the Middle East and Europe as well as cutting off the European and Israeli shipping lanes to Asia.

Whether Islam attempts to once again gain lands by taking control of Europe and possibly then attempting to wrest control of Africa and then being enabled to take on the Americas, specifically the United States, will depend heavily on which nation ends up calling the shots. Should it be Saudi Arabia, then the main conflict will likely be within Europe while if it is Iran there is a definite possibility that it will become a world conflict. The initial conflict will be between Iran and Saudi Arabia which will center on the oil fields in the northeast of Saudi Arabia and the control of the Two Holy Cities of Mecca and Medina along the Red Sea coast in the west of Saudi Arabia. Should Iran take these two cities, they can attempt to declare that Shiite Islam is the ascending power in Islam and play themselves as the strong horse hoping to have the majority of Muslims to change from Sunni and adopt Shiite Islam. Such a conflict in Islam could deplete both sides to the point that neither would be capable of mounting any serious threat to the remainder of the world and Islam will return to rest for the foreseeable future. The Islamic leaders of Iran have an extremist and expansionist view of their place in the world which was expressed by the Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini which has been carried forward by Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei. Their visions of world conquest are probably considered to be insane and in the developed world, such concepts have been relegated to the trashcan of history. Unfortunately, in both Sunni and Shiite Islam, they believe the promise in the Quran that Islam must become the only religious belief held by every person on Earth. They believe that world conquest is still possible despite the complete failure to accomplish such a feat by even the most powerful empires in the past. This now viewed insane concept is not seen as such within Islam; to the believers this is the inevitable future of our world. Many an Imam in Islam is currently preaching that Islam is on the verge of their final push which will result in their finally realizing their inevitable prize, the world and every person within believing their version of Islam, be it Sunni or Shiite. For the record, there are numerous Muslims who do not believe or even care about world conquest. Many of these are at the forefront of the Islamic struggle to allow Islam to evolve and learn to coexist with others. One such leader is Egyptian President Sisi who has delivered speeches before the governing board and Imams who are the instructors at the leading university of Islamic thought, Al-Azhar University.

 

What is their struggle? There are two very different and separate streams of thought in Islam. These result because of the two very different visions written by Muhammad, with the first verses which were universalist in accepting others and coexistence written in Mecca and the supremacist and world conquest warlike writings in Medina. We give a short introduction into the reasons and there are a plethora of links within the comments including links to a Quran with the verses in chronological order all in our article and the comments at Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? Should the reformers succeed in having Islam return to the original writings in the Quran, the world will flourish and the many religions will all work in greater harmony. Should they fail, then there will be a constant state of conflict between Islam and everyone else. That may sound pessimistic, which it is, but just because it is pessimistic does not mean it is not a valid truth. Islam, as currently interpreted using what is called abrogation, where the newest verses overwrite the older verses making the Medina Quranic writings supreme over the earlier Mecca Quranic verses. This was used by the 10th century Islamic scholar Hibatullāh who listed two-hundred-thirty-seven instances of abrogation, with the verse 9:5, known as the so-called “Verse of the Sword”, which alone accounted for almost half of the abrogated verses. Later Quranic interpreters had disagreements with his findings and often with one another. If, instead of using abrogation the Muslims were to adopt instead an originalist view and interpretation of the Quran, then Islam would be able to exist in peace with the world. Until, if such is ever to be, Islam does away with abrogation adopting originalist Quranic verses, Islam will forever be at war with the rest of humankind. This actually has Biblical beginnings, which surprises many. Islam is said to be the religion founded by the generations tracing their origins to Ishmael. In Genesis Chapter 16 verses 11 and 12 we learn of Ishmael and the way he is described is how his prodigy will also be found to act, as is the way of the Old Testament. These two verses read as follows:


11 And the angel of the Lord said to her, “Behold, you will conceive and bear a son, and you shall name him Ishmael, for the Lord has heard your affliction.
12 And he will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be upon all, and everyone’s hand upon him, and before all his brothers he will dwell.”

This was the Biblical curse of a sort which was placed upon the descendants of Ishmael and it is one which has proven to have been validated by history. This also is something which does not bode well for the future. Islam, we must remember, is similar in one way to Judaism, both are religions which also have a complete political system defined for the adherents to follow. The Old Testament tells the Jews, the Israelites, that they would rule over the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, and from the Litani River to the Wadi of Egypt. These were to be our eventual final borders and we were to treat the stranger with respect as long as they lived in peace and obeyed the Noahic Code. We were to reside and serve Hashem and live our lives as an example and for as long as we lived an exemplary life, then we would live at peace. This would become possible once the Temple was built after King David’s reign with his son, King Solomon, tasked to build the Temple. Obviously, there were problems back then and everything collapsed. The rest is, as they say, history. What will be interesting is that the coming Great War, should that be the fate of the world, Israel will not be at its center and very possibly, if we are very careful and live as Hashem desires, we will not be even included in that coming disaster. Where this coming conflict will break out is difficult to predict. If we were pressed and had to choose such a point, we would think very likely the initial wars which lead to the coming horrors have already begun and surround Saudi Arabia. Then there are the infiltrations of Europe, Canada and starting in the United States. Of the Western World, the initial conflict started with the riots in Paris and across France, the terror attacks throughout Western nations, and the culture clashes which have led to an explosion of crimes against women with most being of a sexual nature. These could easily lead to vigilante actions which could escalate into a general societal state of warfare across Europe. Canada, we fear, will fall with barely a peep where the central west and northernmost territories possibly forming their own country. The United States is having its own problems currently and Islam would not be able to take over the United States through infiltration, as there would be a revolt against such politically. The so-called silent majority is a far larger section of the populace and would take control of the government to address any threat ending possibly the entrance of advents of Islam if this were required. But first, the United States must first survive its current divide between the leftist and the conservatives, particularly the Constitutionalists, often referred to as populists. Whatever the future, with any good fortune our little corner of the world will be left alone and ignored by any and all the possible violence, we have enough problems already. As for the rest of the world, well, we doubt the next great conflict will begin in China or anywhere within Asia, or at least that is our thoughts.

Democrat Plan to Win Midterms is Deviously Brilliant

 

The Democrats are pulling out all the stops to regain Congress at the midterm election coming up next month. Former President Barack Obama and Speaker of the House wannabe Nancy Pelosi are just two of the high profile Democrats who have been visiting and speaking at colleges and universities stressing the importance of the youth to register and vote for the Democrats if they desire there to be anything left of America when they graduate. They claim that the Democrats are the ones responsible for the growing economy as President Obama’s fiscal planning is paying dividends now and the recent gains have nothing to do with President Trump and his tax cuts and other stimulus programs. They talk to these kids using the same messages that their humanities professors use in class talking about safety nets and caring about the underprivileged plus their stressing economic fairness and sharing the wealth. The Democrats are counting on these young voters coming out on Election Day to give their votes robotically for every Democrat challenger or at least against the Republican. The main person touring in this blitz to gain voters has been the former President which makes complete sense since it was his Presidential campaign which so heavily depended upon the youth vote.

 

One might ask, though we would hope they already knew, why do the Democrats think this plan can work again? Well, first and foremost, college and university kids, and even some high school seniors, are not nuanced or have had sufficient experience to honestly know neither what each party platform contains nor what the programs of each party hold effects on the economy and job markets. Even worse is that many of the youth in their humanities classes have been fed a steady diet of socialist ideals and leftist ideologies as well as being told that the Democrat Party is either the savior of humankind or at least the less dangerous party with the Republican Party being the spawn of the Devil or worse. This indoctrination is what much of the humanities program has become with reasoned thought and any amount of debate being removed and everything becoming a leftist echo chamber. This, of course, does not produce Republican voters and for these kids to finally realize the truth takes sometimes a few years of watching half their paychecks being eaten up by taxes and any overtime they work, they see the additional pay goes to the government as punishment for working hard. Others, like my daughter, figured out that working for a living meant one needs to earn sufficient to support two people, oneself and one the government supports often to a standard of living exceeding the one the worker is left with after the government takes their percentage. The added onus of supporting the first introductory steps for a single payer healthcare system has taken an even deeper bite out of their pay and that will only continue to result in even more and larger bites taken from them. There is an adage that young Democrat voters become Republicans with age. This adage has far too many exceptions which may be why it is slowly retreating from use, but there is still that percentage for whom it is still valid.

 

The next question is will the Democrat strategy work or fail outright. Well, working for the Democrats means that they take back both houses with sufficient Senate control that impeachment comes into play. Should the Democrats honestly believe that they have gained such powers, one can expect them to possibly test them with a run to impeach Justice Kavanaugh. Succeeding at that, one can fully expect their next target to be President Trump followed by the newly installed President Pence once he vetoes a single piece of leftist legislation sent his way from Congress. This would occur in a flash time-wise as that is necessary such that Pence is impeached before the Senate has taken up their role to approve the replacement he has named to be his Vice President. By doing it this way, the Democrats will have placed the Speaker of the House into the Oval Office and gained the White House. This is a central concept which we need to keep in mind; the Democrats visualize this midterm election as potentially providing them with an easy walk into the Oval Office and doing so with style and pizzazz. But for their hopes to be realized, they need a majority in the House of Representatives and two-thirds of the Senate. We doubt they will be capable of taking such control of the Senate, so their plots will depend on swaying the weaker Republicans. That may be more difficult as Senator Jeff Flake will be gone and apparently Senator Collins has reestablished herself with the Republicans and with President Trump, for now.

The Democrat Party will require far more than a straight-up election can possibly provide as President Trump has been good for many people and there is hope in the populace, and that counts as votes at the polls. Additionally, the Republican base is energized as they were appalled by the treatment and disgusting antics, in their eyes, resorted to by the Democrats to attempt to pressure Justice Kavanaugh into withdrawing his name or having the President fold by withdrawing his nomination. Should President Trump send a nomination to replace the retiring Nikki Haley as Ambassador to the United Nations, as such hearings have purported to make the Kavanaugh lynching appear like a six-year-olds imaginary tea party with her three favorite dolls, the Democrats will have displayed their undo and treacherous policy of power at any cost and give no ground or comfort to their perceived enemies. The Democrats no longer see North Korea or China or Russia or any foreign power as an enemy. Their sole enemies are the Republicans, every last one of them. The Democrat Party has announced their intentions even before a list of possible replacements has been released or even queried by any news outlet that they are going to destroy whomever President Trump may appoint just on the principle of the process. The Democrats have announced that they no longer see the Senate’s job when it comes to any Presidential appointments as Advise and Consent but more of Search and Destroy. It has been intimated that even should the nominee be a woman that that will not avail her of a free ride; she will face just a vicious and ferocious series of personal attacks on her person. The far left of the Democrat Party has taken control and has told President Trump to prepare as Hell is coming to dinner. They have announced their intention on every Trump appointment to stall and demand additional paperwork, FBI investigations, NSA phone records on each appointee and whatever else they can dredge up, up to and including sexual accusations from any point in the candidate’s life just to make each appointee into damaged goods whose work will always be tainted by their public denuding their most intimate secrets even they are required to invent some and find people willing to make such claims on even the most shaky of grounds or accuracy of their memories. The coming hearings, whenever they arrive, to affirm the new United Nations Ambassador should be in depth and look at the complete person and their background as it pertains to holding the position and not becoming the target of somebody leveraging something from their past to force them to act in some way other than they normally would have taken. The problem is that the Democrat Party leadership is not aiding the vetting process as much as they are shredding the rules of civility and going straight for the jugular in an attack meant to destroy, not to clarify and definitely not to confirm. Any further appointments made by President Trump will fall along party lines.

This take no prisoners approach to appointees is the same approach to be used in the midterm elections. One can expect fierce and brutal attacks on any Republican who is running in a close race according to polls, the real polls and not the ones in the New York Times. The one thing which will require close attention is the investigations into voter fraud, ballot box stuffing, absentee ballots whose voters also attempt to vote in person, illegal immigrants being permitted to vote and every kind of fraudulent means of cheating on the election. It was Joseph Stalin who phrased it best stating, “It’s not the people who vote that count. It’s the people who count the votes.” This was an area where Joseph Stalin knew how to fake an election. First, you must make it appear that you have the same number of total votes as were likely to have been cast. Further, the number of votes must not outnumber the number of registered voters. Finally, one should keep the percentages real and believable. If you win an election by such a landslide that it casts questions, such as elections in Islamic regions where the chosen winners gain well over half of the final count giving them over 90% of the vote, then the result is too slanted to be believable. Stalin knew enough to have his victories be by a more believable margin with him rarely claiming over 60% of the votes. But in the end, win by one vote or win by tens of thousands or even more, they all place you in as elected and nothing more. People claim that by winning by a larger majority one received prestige which allows them greater pressure and urgency on the items they propose, but they still only have one vote and for leaders, the public can be fickle and turn on you in an instant if you appear lost and unable to secure the passage of your programs. But the Democrats desire only one thing, power and with it, control; but they want complete power and total control, no half measures will satisfy them. This is the reason behind their attacks whether they are attacking President Trump or the members of his cabinet and his security personnel. They want that one of theirs be granted the title of President and can thus appoint their own Vice President making their control complete. They want the situation President Obama enjoyed his first two years where he had a comfortable majority in the House of Representatives and over sixty in the Senate permitting his passage of anything he proposed that year. But can we explain their plan to win back Congress?

 

Actually, we already gave the separate parts, so allow us to wrap it all together and present the final thoughts. Their initial aim is to take control of Congress. This they believe is dependent upon their ability to get the youthful voters to the polls so expect buses filled with students rolling up to vote headquarters. Expect the Democrats to utilize every trick to game the system where such appears necessary. The Democrats have already intimated their intents to cheat where required and the vote is competitive and the winner is uncertain at around five-o-clock in the afternoon, a time when many of the poll watchers leave to get something to eat. As the voting is most often performed electronically, and the separate systems are not networked beyond their voting regions, each system will require different expertise. Then there are those systems where they continue to utilize paper ballots which are counted manually and kept well out of reach for ballot stamping. One should always be very skeptical when upon opening a box containing voter ballots one finds a second box. One should become even more skeptical if all of these voters were cast for one candidate. Further, be suspicious of anything which appears out of the question for if it appears to be problematic, then it probably will turn out to at least raise questions. The Democrats also believe their take no prisoners approach to nominations will impress the youth with their spirit that President Trump can be completely thwarted and cause them to show up to the midterm vote and swing the necessary races to the Democrats. They are not feeding these kids on any real message beyond Democrats really good people and Republican are repulsive creatures from outer space. This, combined with their tough, no holds barred wrestling of appointees such as Brett Kavanaugh and will further drive these youth out to vote. They believe that with former President Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama hitting the college and university campuses will bring the youth to the polls in numbers as had swept Barack Obama into the White House. This reliance on the youth to come out and vote for the Democrat politicians in the midterms appears to be a long shot at best. Without the President running and the big names such as Obama being bantered by the media, the youth vote will more than likely choose to live out their lives in their insulated communities and not leave campus or even seek out their on campus voting location.

 

Meanwhile, the former President and many others are furious over the fact that President Trump has single-handedly undercut the progresses made in the ‘New World Order’ causing deep delays and potential danger of breaking entirely into the Deep State and destroying all their work developing the Deep State into an operating machine which would complete their control over the people. President Trump is doing what he is able to do and doing so wherever he finds an opening. The problem with attempting to counter President Trump is his seeming irrational thought has few if any predictable methodologies. Still, despite, or possibly because, of this Helter Skelter methodology, President Trump has done more to disrupt and dismantle the Deep State than any predecessors were capable of accomplishing even in four or eight years. This accomplishment alone will place President Trump into history lauded as a great President who was very effective, despite having to initially face down his own Party and its detractors, many of which are retiring in this or the next election. He placed two strict constructionists who believe in the original document and that the intended meaning of the Constitution is what is to determine the Constitutionality of laws and that Constitution was set in stone when written and is not a living Constitution evolving over time permitting people to reinterpret the Constitution, Bill of Rights and the remainder of the Amendments. President Trump signed an executive order to all his cabinet Secretaries demanding they delete two regulations for every one they produce. If this could only be kept in operation for a number of decades, then we might actually see some real progress, but the Deep State has many layers and thusfar President Trump has only cut the epidermis and even that only superciliously. The Power of the Deep State to write regulations which for intents and purposes carry the weight of law is what requires being not only trimmed but excised. Only when the Congress is forced to write the entirety of each law with its definitions defined within the law along with punishments for noncompliance leaving little if any room for ideologues to write regulations, will it be then that the Deep State will slowly devolve as the numbers of legal minds hired by each agency are let go for lack of work for them to do and no mischief in which they can play. We will see what the results are in next months midterm elections and that will decide much. Should the Republicans buck trends and actually make gains, then he will be able to pursue his personal agenda and complete many of his other campaign promises. Only once President Trump has such power will the Deep State be annulled and much power returned to the elected members of Congress.

 

One can only hope that President Trump is even able to empower the individual states by returning numerous powers to the states ending their usurpation by the Federal Government. Much of what the Federal Government has is too many agencies which are mucking things up with the most obvious and should be the first to be cut, education. The education of people’s children should be decided at each school or at least school district. Policy and programs of schools should never have become centralized. The same is true in so many other areas. Further, the furor over the possibility for overturning Roe vs Wade has been “Much Ado About Nothing.” The result of such an event would be leaving the abortion question up to each state or potentially each county. Our proposing that every piece of legislation be fully fleshed out with all regulations and fines or punishments included leaving nothing further; we would find that the Representatives and Senators would be passing far fewer pieces of legislation.

 

This would in a manner of speaking return some powers to the individual states and beyond as counties flex their muscles as will cities and even metropolitan regions. Perhaps we can get the attitude in Washington D.C. to change and adopt the old adage which was attributed to President Thomas Jefferson which states, “The government that governs best governs least.” The American dream was a nation run by town councils with their permitting limited powers to pass to the counties who in turn would delegate even less to the state who would permit the federal governance do only those things denied the states by the Constitution or reserved to it by that same document. It is a laudable idea for every piece of legislation undertaken by the Congress to have a cover letter explaining from whence power to do so legally under the Constitution originates. The split we are witnessing in the United States are standing on opposing sides of this issue and this is the central piece of contention, namely is the Federal Government something for which all power gravitates or is the power best utilized at the local level where they are to be applied. The Democrats favor an all-powerful centralized governance which has unlimited powers and no restrictions which inevitable leads to fascism and the enslavement of the individual for the good of the whole.

 

The Trump supporters cherish individual power and the decentralizing of power as well as making the use and application of power be performed in the light of day in the floors of Congress and not in the dark recesses of the Deep State which currently simply spits out regulations demanding us to do this which forbids us to do that. If one were to go through Federal Law, say simply the laws regarding filing of paperwork in order to represent foreign companies and individuals, at some point, they would find that there are requirements for the filing of a certain form while another regulation makes it a crime to utilize that very form for the same purpose which means that, either way, you are breaking one or the other regulation. The result is neither is enforced until one wishes to leverage information or to get them to turn over on somebody closer to their target, in this case Manafort to turn over on President Trump, he refused, they prosecuted. Manafort refused and apparently will be sentenced to jail though he will be given one final chance to incriminate President Trump or else. But the main thing to remember, the Democrat success depends on uninformed people voting for them out of fear and other emotional reasons. The Republicans are mostly voting to try and rescue their nation which they see as being very ill and on life support. They desire their nation back. Both will end up depending upon the Hispanic population which will likely become the new majority.

After Trump, There Comes the Great Question

 

We can assume that the Democrat Party will lose the coming midterms largely due to the public lynching of Justice Kavanaugh in his confirmation hearings. The Republicans can probably count on the Democrat candidates using similar tactics against numerous Republican candidates in the most highly contended states. This will backfire on them to the extremes. It is even rather likely that President Trump will easily be reelected should, as expected, the economy continue to roll along with a future that appears bright. This will only be more likely should the Republicans experience a red tide flowing fast carrying Congress securely behind the President and his work of bolstering the economic conditions. The problem comes after President Trump for the Republicans to continue to keep the Trump support of what we call the Silent Majority or the Middle American Normals. Vice President Pence is not a highly exciting personality which would stir the base to come out and vote. By 2024, the Democrats will have a completely new and different body of candidates. They will probably run a fresh face filled with the vigor of youth which will produce the kind of excitement which brings out the younger voters, the very kind of voters which elected President Obama and before him President Clinton. The Republicans will be required to come up with a Presidential candidate who can stir the base and get the working class voters to remain steady with the Republicans. The one person we can see who would bring out such passion would be United States Ambassador Nicky Haley. In addition, Nicky Haley could be the woman to claim the treasured title of first woman President. This would be a great thing as she is an invigorating and special personality as well as a great and steady proponent of conservative thought and policy.

Here is where the problem comes, after twelve years of holding the Presidency, it will be very difficult for the Republicans to hold to power beyond, as the pendulum of politics tends to inexorably swing one way and then inevitably swings back. Finally, even should the excitement of having the first woman President, after the period of Republican hold of Congress will also become challenged, and if Ms. Haley does not have a supporting Congress, she will not be able to accomplish her preferred policy and might fall victim to the same difficulties which plagued President George H. W. Bush with having to allow the raising of taxes in order to receive the votes necessary to at least salvage part of the conservative agendas. No matter what, eventually the Democrats will take the White House and if this should come after a near record time of holding the Presidency by the Republicans, history teaches that any Democrat President, especially if this does not occur until 2032, then the Congress will also be under Democrat rule and the mainstream Republican establishment will have recovered sufficiently to have returned the Republican agenda to the unexciting middle of the road policies which has seemingly always put the base to sleep as it lacks vision. This is what led to the initial two years under President Obama where he also had an unchallengeable majority in the House of Representatives and a cloture proof sixty or greater number of Senators. This was how President Obama managed to force through Obamacare and virtually anything else they chose to pass. This is the great problem which has faced every past correction from the seemingly inexorable move leftward by American politics. This will also have a devastating effect on the rest of the world, as the United States once again will change their loyalties away from their former traditional allies, especially in the Middle East, and ally with former adversaries. But with whom will the Democrats ally?

 

The next time the Democrats capture the White House the only mystery will be whether they ally on the side of the Sunni or the Shiite base of Islam. This decision will determine whether they will support Saudi Arabia or Iran, as they are the leaders of these two variants of Islam. Whichever side is chosen, the reality will also show a new threat to traditional America. The Democrat Party is at the forefront of their new identity. This new Democrat is currently represented by such as Linda Sarsour and Keith Ellison who both have connections with CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) and connections with the Muslim Brotherhood and even potentially with Hamas. The main reasoning behind the Islamic preference for the Democrat Party is largely due to their immigration policy which favors immigrants from the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region which is heavily Islamic. Further, the members of Islamic faiths are very politically conscious and realize that power only comes when you concentrate your power in one group which maximizes your influence. It currently appears that the Islamic power base will be cultivated and grown within the Democrat Party over the Republican Party. Their hard work has been rewarded with Keith Ellison being promoted into the second highest position in the party. The apparent partnering of the Democrats and Islam makes little sense until you realize they also have a common enemy, the Judeo-Christian Ethics. The problem in marrying the remainder of their seeming alliance is easily explained by the overly optimistic belief in their powers and abilities of having an ability powered by their overt belief in the rightfulness of their political agenda to overcome all obstacles if only they are able to take power. By the time the Democrats retake power in the White House, the face of Europe will be changing as the Islamic influx creates political unrest. The Democrats will promise to keep the United States out of any European war and not facing the problems which resulted from the two World Wars. This will be a very appealing platform which will likely be successful.

 

What will also have come into being is a sufficient number of Islamic voting blocks which can carry certain states for the Democrat Party. These states will be, but not limited to, Michigan, Minnesota, Virginia and possibly the Carolinas. Many of these states are the decisive states necessary for carrying the Electoral College and attaining the White House. This will provide the Islamic blocks considerable power in the Democrat Party. It could be that power which may cause the Democrats to break that promise about not entering into the problems of Egypt and further into the imbroglio all but guaranteed to have worsened in the Middle East. Our best guess is that the Democrats will be beholding to Sunni Islam which will place the United States in direct conflict with Iran as well as possibly, should alliances remain as they are currently, against Russia. The wild card would be whether or not the Chinese desire getting involved or take the intelligent path of remaining aloof and out of all wars which they do not choose to start. The truth is that we are guaranteed that the future is going to be interesting if nothing else. The question is will time change Islam or will it remain set on the path of chasing after world conquest as they believe the Quran demands of them. Should the Muslim Brotherhood remain a power determining the policies and beliefs for Sunni Islam, then we can be assured that world conquest will remain their goal. They will desire to use their power within the Democrat Party in order to serve just that goal.

 

If anyone believes that the United States is in turmoil currently, just wait until the late 2020’s to the mid 2030’s and what is coming. Imagine the conflict which will arise should one party begin to try and replace the Constitution with a new set of laws which, as time passes, begin to point that they are attempting to place Sharia in place of the Constitution. The civil conflict which this could instigate would make these current altercations pale by comparison. That will be because the Christians, who are usually the quiet or at least polite, will be up in arms and become the strongest of Constitutionalists. Things might even start to become uncomfortable sufficiently for the Jews, who currently are very aligned with the Democrat Party, start to depart out of fear and a measure of survival instinct. If the rise of Islamic interests in the Democrat Party does not give the Jews reason for pause, then they are truly lost to their faith. The Muslim power base and ability to fund campaigns for the Democrats will have them a strong replacement for the Jews who will not have the numbers or financial clout to compete with the Islamic power base. Should these events take place, there will be many Jews fleeing to Israel, as Europe will no longer be a safe refuge. The real question is whether or not the Islamic powers through the Muslim Brotherhood actually take power in the United States as their well laid out plans which are no secret.

 

We may be sounding like fear-mongers, but the above link is real and what we have laid out here is also a distinct probability. We have traced this slow progression of the hate of anti-Semitism which has slowly but inexorably grown stronger and stronger in places which many claimed it could never grow. This growth has been in the far left and not the right. This is why the left and Democrat Party have become the natural home for the Islamic interests. We have witnessed the expression of Israel hatred from the far left and exemplified by Linda Sarsour and many of her activities. How all of the parties and forces in play will make sure that American political theater continues to defy predictions and make turns and spins which nobody could ever have conceived could occur is anyone’s guess. Who could have predicted that President Obama would be elected at the time that Ronald Reagan gained his reelection and it appeared that Vice President Bush would follow for a full two terms, and he lost to a relative unknown governor from Arkansas. Imagine a time when we had little knowledge of a family known as the Clintons. Of all the things which have occurred in American politics, the one prediction which came true in spades was the warning from President Eisenhower to keep a tight control over the military and its potential marriage with a defense industry which would drain funds from the American public at unstoppable rates if allowed to go loose. Well, they went loose and America reaped the misery. We are, unfortunately, not quite as true seeing as was President Eisenhower, but then he spoke of what he knew and you cannot fault him for the ensuing mess because we did not heed his warnings. What will be coming down the road to us looks to be of equal a threat to the American dream and a Constitution which has never known and potentially will never see its equal outside of the bible, the book which began the entire idea of personal freedoms and national liberties.
