No question. The resignation of Mike Flynn is a big setback for President Donald Trump.
In their panic, the establishment, the Left, the globalsts and the media were trying desperately to do anything and everything to kill Donald Trump’s presidency in its infancy.
While fully enjoying their first major victory, Trump’s enemies might have made ia tactical mistake.
Instead of waiting for the perfect moment to kill (politically) Donald Trump they struck at the first opportunity but the resignation of Mike Flynn is not necessarilly a fatal blow.
So, this might be the wakeup call that President Trump needs in order to realize that, unlike in the world of business, this is total war, fought on every level and with every dirty trick imaginable.
If President Trump draws the right lessons from this and if he goes on the offensive he can use this first defeat to achieve ultimate victory.
In warfare an early defeat just at the right time sometimes can pave the wave for the greater strategic victory.
A little bit old but stll good.

When people from the political right talk about leftists they call them often stupid.
Well, that is certainly true in many cases but it fails to completely understand the nature of the Left.
If you are debating leftists, armed with facts, rigorous logic and modest debating skills, you are winning the argument every time. This, of course, might give you the impression that leftists are just stupid for defending world view that is so utterly inconsistent, so utterly contrary to reality, common sense and logic and hence utterly indefensible.
But this impression misses the full picture. You wll find that persons who are perfectly logical and reasonable in their line of work and in their field of expertise, throw logic, reason and common sense out the window when it comes to their world view. That kind of behaviour is not limited to the Left.
Case in point: Steven Hawking. This brilliant physicist who is highly regarded in his field of expertise, makes the most fundamental philosophical error that perhaps only amateurs could make, when he talks about the unverse creating itself.
Well, in order for the unverse to create anythng it must already be in exstence. Somethng that doesn’t exist, can’t create anything.
Mateo is a real person but Mateo is not his real name. While protecting his identity it is easier for me to talk about him when he’s given a name, even a false one.
The reason why I’m writing at all about him is because we’ve had a conversation that schocked me in these recent Christmas days.
Usually Mateo doesn’t want to talk about politics with me because he usually loses the argument, because he wants to keep living in his dream world and because he loves me. Lacking arguments he would have to hurt me and verbally abuse me because he has no other way to defend his crazy world view. The feeling of love is mutual. No, we’re both straight. It’s the kind of love you have for a brother. I know Mateo since we were both little chldren. In fact, I think I know his heart better than anyone on the planet, including himself. He is envious and he can be petty and ugly. He is ruthless and egotistical and in the pursuit of his personal goals he is willing to hurt even the ones he loves. On the other hand he is fiercely loyal. He would rather have his arms hacked off than betray you. He fights wthout regard for his life when he defends and protects those he loves or cares about. I know he would fight to the death for my sake.
With the same ruthlessnes and energy he pursues his own goals he helps those he loves when they need his help. He can be as selfless as he can be egotistcal.
As I’ve written elsewhere, I live in Germany. With the islamic terrorist attack in Berlin happening just a few days before, I didn’t give a damn about Mateo’s wishes to not talk about the topic of Islam and Germany’s “refugee” crisis when we met on Christmas.
That’s because I’m concerned with the safety and the lives of those I love (including Mateo himself).
The conversation quickly turned heated and at times ugly. As usual he was losing the argument. At one point he said: “there have to be not just people like you but idealists like me”. Following that, I shredded the notion of his “idealism” by exposing the contradictions in his “idealism” and by pointing out the effects his “idealism” has in the real world.
After some strawman arguments and ad hominems coming from him he was reduced to this: “I don’t want to be reasonable!”.
I was floored, speechless.
This really shocked me because not only here we have a grown man acting utterly childish but we have also a man who is unable to see that he sacrifices even those he loves on the altar of his insane leftist world view.
Now, I know that Mateo is definitely not stupid. Why then does he act stupidly?
The answer goes straight to the core of Mateo’s being.
Since he was a little child Mateo wanted always to have parents who would fulfil his desires, who would make sure that everything would turn out to be good and, most importantly, parents who would take responsibility for his life.
While these wishes are natural for a little child, in the course of his life Mateo wanted to stay a child. He refused to become fully adult. He wanted to stay a little child with the ability to do everything adults do.
As he was growing up he replaced real physical parents with abbstract ideas (lefist ideas) which promised paradise on earth and, more importantly, he replaced them with the parties, organizatons and states that represented these ideas.
This overpowering desire to stay a child explains Mateo’s polics. Leftist ideas, leftist organizations and the state have become Mateo’s psychological parents. This is the reason why Mateo clings to these “parents” even if they are killing the very people he loves.
There is nothing, absolutely nothing one can do to change Mateo. The only thing that could perhaps change Mateo would be his “parents” going directly after him in the way Hitler, Stalin and Mao did go after political “apostates”. But even then I’m not sure that he would change.
What do I want you to take away from this post? I want you to realize that leftists mostly cling to their ideas not because of rational, intellectual reasons but because of feelings, emotions, fear and psychological attachment to leftist ideas.
That is why they act stupidly in the defense of these intellectually bankrupt ideas. Like Islam, the leftists’ ideas cannot be rationally defended. That’s why both islam and the Left have to use threats, intimidation and violence to impose their ideas upon the rest of the world.
What should we do in light of all these facts?
We should continue pummelling leftists in the intellectual arena. We should expose and pummel them intellectually to the point where they have no resort other than to admit (explicitely or implicitely) that they have only emotional/psychologcal reasons for clinging to their ideas.
But if you are a conservative who thinks that this is enough, you are sadly mistaken.
Since the basis for being a leftist is to a great extend emotional/psychological you cannot change a leftist’s world view by purely intellectual and logical means.
The cultural marxists used means like film, music and art that appeal mostly to emotions and the psyche in order to pump their message subliminally into the population.
Remember the cultural revolution of the 1960’s? Many of the kids where not drawn in because the ideas of Mao and other marxists were brillant or intellectually attractive. The marxists’ ideas were as rotten then as they are now, Many of the kids were drawn in by the good feelings, free love, the music, the girls, the sex, the drugs and the rock and roll.
This is the open flank of conservatives and all non-leftists. The Left completely dominates film, music and art.
If we want to appeal to the emotions of the leftists we have to invest more rescources in these areas. We have to take these areas over from the Left. We need more films, for example, like “American Sniper”.
Such a takeover will take a long time. Until that happens we must develop creative and low-cost ways to achieve the same results in our daily lives. I’m convinced that this endeavor is worth the while because I’m convinced that the majoriy of the leftists are not completely lost causes like Mateo.

Recently Mr. Hope And Change (aka Barrak Hussein O.) warned about the danger that “fake news” pose to democracy.
Yes, there are fake news but they are not the ones he wants to make you believe. The mainstream media have become the biggest distributors of fake news.
These media that have given up any pretense of objectivity have not only shamelessly lied through their teeth but in the 2016 elections they have been so wrong on so many levels and in such big ways that it makes me wonder who in his right mind would ever believe them again.
With the election of Donald Trump as US president the mainstream media can’t just ignore reality and sweep it under the rug.
That, Trumps brilliant use of social media and the fact that alternative media makes the mainstream media increasingly irrelevant makes it for the Left and the Democrates imperative to control and discredit the alternative media.
This will be one of the great upcoming battles. I’ve always said it. The internet is a revolution that, for the first time in history, enables every person with access to an internet connection to become a publisher who can reach millions of people.
Just like the invention of the alphabet and Gutenbergs’s printing press gave more access to knowledge to more people than before, resulting in social change, the internet revolution takes the distribution of information out of the hand of a few into the hands of the many. The internet and the alternative media makes it possible that views and information which differ from that coming from media controlled by goverments and powerful elites can be widely distributed.
This is precisely the reason why dictators and repressive regimes are so fearful of the internet and the alternative media that they take drastic measures to control both.
No, Mr. Hope And Change. You,ve got it completely wrong. The danger to democracy comes not from social media and alternative media. It comes from goverments and powerful elites trying to silence dissenting voices and trying to suppress information they don’t want people to know.
“Truth in an age of deception”, the motto of this blog, is more relevant than ever.

Life is not ideal. Life is not perfect. In fact, life can be mean and nasty.
We all know it. And yet, many forget this simple fact when it comes to making choices.
Life presents constantly choices to you. Now, whether you like those choices or not doesn’t matter because there are no others.
Let me give you a real life example, a real story that happened to my brother.
He was riding his bicycle down a hill when a car came suddenly out of a side street.
It didn’t help him that he had the right of way and that the car was supposed to wait.
Worse, the driver didn’t continue driving but the car stopped on the road.
My brother pulled the brakes hard but he realized that there was no way that he could stop in time or that he could get around the car.
He realized that he would hit the side of the car but he still could choose WHERE to hit the car.
He could choose to hit the back or the front of the car. If he chose to hit the back of the car, with almost absolute certainty he would sustain serious, potentially fatal, injuries because almost all of the impact energy would be absorbed by his body and he could also hit the windows or the roof of the car with his head.
If he chose to hit the front of the car the bicycle would absorb all of the immediate impact energy while he would fly over the engine hood and land somewhere on the road. That would still involve the risk of sustaining serious or fatal injuries but his chances to come out much less harmed were much better.
Of course, from a purely technical point of view he had still other choices.
He could choose to do nothing, stay the course and sing “Que sera, sera. What ever will be, will be.”.
In that case, someone else, life or fate or whatever would make the choice for him.
He could still try to get around the car.
But no matter what other choices he could technically make, the fact is, that only two outcomes were realistically possible.
He would either hit the front or the back.
Thank the Lord, my brother made the right choice and chose to hit the front. Thank the Lord, miraculously, he was almost unharmed.
This brings me to the American presidential election. Because so many people have already committed themselves to vote either Clinton or Trump there are only two possible outcomes: Trump or Clinton.
While I don’t think that Trump is that bad, I don’t understand how some who call themselves conservatives cannot bring themselves to vote for Trump because he is not conservative enough or because he is supposedly a buffoon.
Many of those same conservatives have constantly complained about Obavez (Mr. Hope and Change) for eight years.
I don’t understand why conservatives who think that Trump is not the ideal Republican or a flawed candidate would rather give power to a Democrate candidate who is as much to the left as Mao Tsetung and who is much more flawed than Trump on any level.
Because Trump is not conservative enough let’s give power to someone who is even less conservative.
Technically they can choose to vote neither Trump nor Clinton but that doesn’t change the fact that they will still get Trump or Clinton.
So, you can fool yourself that there are other choices. You can choose either Trump or Clinton or you can sing “Que sera, sera”.

Yesterday I’ve had an interesting discussion with one who has fallen for the biggest myth that the Left has ever created.
It is THE foundation of the whole rotten, stinking ideology of the Left, an ideology that has been packaged and repackaged under different names and in different variants, all built on the same premise.
This premise is the myth of wealth distribution as a zero-sum game. In other words: the wealth one gains has to be taken from someone else. If one becomes rich someone else has to become poor.
This argument is so pervasive and yet it is so easy to shoot down.
I brought up the mother of all counter-arguments which my interlocutor could not refute.
Let’s go back in time 10,000 years. Our ancestors were hunters, gatherers and scavengers. By today’s standards they lived in abject poverty. Health care was virtually non-existent. Live expectancy was perhaps 30 to 40 years. Housing was primitive at best. Life was an uncertain constant struggle against nature. The possessions of the average person were very few. Even chiefs of tribes or kings were hardly better off than today’s average worker.
Then a technological revolution happened. Agriculture was invented.
At one point in time the persons who invented or constantly improved agriculture were able to produce more food than they themselves consumed.
This surplus made the stock breeders and farmers wealthier than the hunters and gatherers without making the hunters and gatherers poorer.
Not only didn’t the hunters and gatherers become poorer, they became RICHER because of agriculture.
Because of the food surplus produced by agriculture some people could devote all their time and energy to doing highly specialized work, producing things such as pottery, weapons, tools, clothing etc.
These specialists traded the goods they produced for food.
The hunters and gatherers traded some of their food and other things they produced for better, more effective weapons, traps and other tools.
This in turn allowed them to hunt more efficiently, enabling them to produce more food and INCREASE their wealth.
Thus was all of our civilization born.
Bottom line: Increasing your wealth by producing something that other people need or other people want increases the wealth for ALL.

With the attacks by allah-u-akbar-yelling muslims on European civilians in recent months and weeks the mainstream media felt the need to cover up the role of islam in these attacks.
In so doing they shot themselves in the foot. Aside from the fact that it makes little difference to the victims and their loved ones whether they were attacked by terrorists or ‘mentally ill lone wolfes’ the fact that these mentally ill murderers were all muslims raises whole new questions.
Why is it that muslims are way more likely to become lunatics going on a killing spree?
More to the point, are they insane because they are muslims or are the muslims because they are insane?
