QOTD: "Amid all this leftish high-fiving about court decisions and executive orders, we forget political and electoral reality. Barack Obama has done more to destroy liberal political power in the Congress and in the statehouses than any Democratic politician since the 1920s. His executive orders and neglect of enforcing existing law have green-lighted the executive power of the next Republican president in a way that Richard Nixon could hardly imagine. He has discredited the idea of a disinterested media to such a degree that its biased audits of the next future Republican administration will be seen as laughable.

Europe and the United States are seeing glimpses of the ultimate leftist trajectory — a mixture of Greece and Detroit, de facto non-enforcement of the law, the Iranian nuke deal, a new McCarthyism, and race, class, and gender hatred — and are becoming afraid and perhaps appalled. A growing number of people sense that 21st century leftist elites are not pragmatic working people, but a privileged sect that callously experiments with other people’s lives on the understanding that they are insulated and immune from the inevitable disasters that follow from their own ideas.

A great pushback is awakening here and abroad, but its timing, nature, and future remain mysterious." --Victor Davis Hanson

GRANNY HILLARY: Obama’s Deal With Iran Won’t Stop Them From Launching Lots of Terror Attacks

I paraphrase, but only just a skōsh..

Leading Democratic presidential candidate, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, says that even with a nuclear deal Iran will still be “the world’s chief sponsor of terrorism,” Yahoo! politics reported Friday.

“But even if we do get such a deal, we will still have major problems from Iran,” she said. “They are the world’s chief sponsor of terrorism. They use proxies like Hezbollah to sow discord and to create insurgencies, to destabilize governments. They are taking more and more control of a number of nations in the region and they pose an existential threat to Israel.”

“So even if we are successful on the nuclear front, we still are going to have to turn our attention to working with our partners to try to rein in and prevent this continuing Iranian aggressiveness,” Clinton said.

Various critics of the nuclear deal with Iran have raised similar concerns that the deal will only fuel Iran’s efforts to destabilize the Middle East. These critics include Foreign Policy editor David Rothkopf, former secretaries of state Henry Kissinger and George Shultz, former State Department official Aaron David Miller, and Washington Institute for Near East Policy fellows Mehdi Khalaji, Soner Cagaptay, and James Jeffrey.

Last week, the U.S. State Department released a report calling Iran a state sponsor of terrorism.


So why isn't Hillary speaking out directly against this insane deal?

Alas, that too is a rhetorical question.

CHALK UP ANOTHER NEEDLESS DEATH: Thank the Democrats’ Treasonous Quest for Open Borders

By Dan Cadman

By all accounts Kate Steinle was a vivacious young woman with a bright future ahead of her — until she met her death at the hands of an illegal alien while strolling on a San Francisco pier with her father, who witnessed the fatal shooting. The alien was quickly apprehended by police and identified as Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, a citizen of Mexico with seven felony convictions and five prior deportations from the United States.

According to media outlets, Lopez-Sanchez was arrested by federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents who discovered that there was an outstanding warrant for a drug violation and did the right thing: They turned him over to the police for prosecution and filed a detainer requesting that they get him back at the conclusion of the charges. That's where things went seriously wrong.

What did the district attorney's office do? They promptly declined to prosecute and the warrant was dismissed. (I would bet good money that, whether they admit it or not, the reason they wanted to drop the charges is because they figured the subject could just be dumped back on the federal government saving them time and headaches while compounding someone else's.)

Meanwhile, Lopez-Sanchez had been booked into the San Francisco County Jail. What did they do? Refuse to honor the detainer filed by the agents who had given them the subject to prosecute in the first place, simply releasing him instead to the street, where he wandered around until he shot Ms. Steinle to death.

The Dukes of Hazzard vs. Today’s Slave Markets

Yet another must-read from Sultan Knish, aka Daniel Greenfield.

On Mad TV in the nineties, there was a routine where some fast-talking dude would pull out a business card with a flourish while intoning the word "Bam!"

And, Bam!

When Obama condemned Christianity for the Crusades, only a thousand years too late, in attendance was the Foreign Minister of Sudan; a country that practices slavery and genocide. Obama could have taken time out from his rigorous denunciation of the Middle Ages to speak truth to the emissary of a Muslim Brotherhood regime whose leader is wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity. But our moral liberals spend too much time romanticizing actual slaver cultures.

It’s a lot easier for Obama to get in his million dollar Cadillac with its 5-inch thick bulletproof windows, a ride Boss Hogg could only envy, and chase down a couple of good ole boys than it is to condemn a culture that committed genocide in our own time, not in 1099, and that keeps slaves today, not in 1815.

Even while the Duke boys were being chased through Georgia, Obama appeared at an Iftar dinner; an event at which Muslims emulate Mohammed, who had more slaves than Robert E. Lee. There are no slaves in Arlington House today, but in the heartlands of Islam, from Saudi mansions to ISIS dungeons, there are still slaves, laboring, beaten, bought, sold, raped and disposed of in Mohammed’s name.

Slavery does not exist under the Confederate flag eagerly being pulled down. It does exist under the black and green flags of Islam rising over mosques in Iraq, Saudi Arabia and America today.

What exactly does it say about a society -- and a political party -- that will tar a decades-old TV show while ignoring real crimes against humanity?

Talk amongst yourselves.

QOTD: "...when did Americans ever get asked if they wanted the Federal government to stop enforcing our borders? When did developed countries decide that having actual borders is a violation of basic human rights? I can’t recall any referendum on that.

This is an issue across the Western world. So far, only Australia and Israel have taken robust steps to halt migrant flows, but they have shown that admitting large numbers of illegal immigrants is a choice, not a fait accompli or a fact of life that developed countries can do nothing about. Given the enormous migrant flows facing Europe now, this is sure to become a bigger and more contentious issue in many countries.

All these are critical matters that merit serious discussion, not rabble-rousing. Yet when the mainstream powers-that-be stifle such necessary discussion, confining it to the fringes, don’t complain when fringe characters are the ones talking about it." --The XX Committee

6 MOST POWERFUL COMMENTS ON THE GREEK DEBACLE: Left-wing Fantasists vs. One World Fanatics

Fiat currency printed ad infinitum on presses controlled by the political class and their corporate cronies, eco-Fascists, and One World Government Marxists -- what could possibly go wrong?

Greece is only the first domino to fall, and fall it will, whether this month or next. Then the rest of the dominoes will follow, smashing creditors along the way on a path once called contagion. Though it's truly not a virus, it's mathematics triumphing over political fantasists. And the turn of the United States will itself eventually come, unless and until we begin electing leaders with virtue.

People in the mold of Reagan and Cruz. People apart from the system, willing to speak truth to power.

6. Janet Daley, The Telegraph
Greece has become a battleground for the worst ideas of the 20th century: Which of these do you find more repugnant: an autocratic European Union which is no longer bothering to conceal its intention to displace an elected government, or a shambolic clique of Left-wing fantasists who are propelling a country – and its hapless population – into economic ruin and political chaos?

5. The Z Man:
The Greek Revolution: The problem at the core of global finance is that there’s no market mechanism to restrain public debt. The whole point of a floating currency regime is to disguise public debt in order to avoid making tough choices about the welfare state. It’s not an accident that since the Louvre Accords the size and scope of government has skyrocketed throughout the West.

In other words, a currency system based on credit has worked at hiding the cost of government. In fact, it has been so good at it no one noticed that Greece was running up debt at an alarming rate. In the old system, Greece would have been facing double digit borrowing rates long before they reached this point...

...The only people with the ability to pay sovereign debt are the tax payers.

Wherein Gay Supremacist @GeorgeTakei Gets Pwnt by @Instapundit

I term radicals like George Takei gay supremacists because they believe their rights trump my religious liberties. There's no other way to state it. Because if I'm an observant Christian who owns a bakery and does not want to bake a cake that celebrates gay "marriage", the gay supremacists believe I should be forced to do so, even at gunpoint (by the police) if need be.


Perhaps George can answer my hypothetical question:

QOTD: "For all its crassness, Trump’s rant on immigration is closer to reality than the gauzy clichés of the immigration romantics unwilling to acknowledge that there might be an issue welcoming large numbers of high school dropouts into a 21st-century economy. If we don’t want to add to the ranks of the poor, the uninsured and the welfare dependent, we should have fewer low-skilled immigrants — assuming saying that is not yet officially considered a hate crime.

The point surely could be made much more deftly by anyone not named Donald J. Trump. In the meantime, he fills the vacuum, and enjoys the whirlwind." --Rich Lowry
