A new war, that is, as he tried to end Iraq and Afghanistan, despite the military-industrial complex fighting to maintain the fighting and spending and profiting. First president in many years not to start a new war.
“The enemy we have been fighting all this time is only the most brutal, radical and impatient, relentless and daring part of the horde that is breaking across Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and America. This is a clash of civilizations. The thousands dead on 9/11 and the thousands more dead since then, are only a small down payment on the horrors to come…While we spend fortunes to build nations, the horde is building its own nations in the cities of Europe and in the old manufacturing centers of America…”
Hence anti-Semites like Congresswoman Illan Omar are on the rise.

Biden basically created ISIS, says former defense secretary and Marine general Jim Mattis.
Biden, not Trump, has the blood of millions on his hands.
Pulled into Lowe’s the other morning to buy an extra ceiling fan to replace one that’s caving after about sixteen years of faithful service. Started down the parking aisle when I spotted two signs at two spots at the front.
“Veterans Parking Only,” they read, “Thank you for your service.” A waving American flag topped the signs.
Probably meant for new veterans of the Middle East, I thought, not old farts from Viet Nam like me. Still, I’m a genuine veteran, so I parked in one of the two empty spots. All set to whip out my VA card should it become necessary. It didn’t.
I liked this idea when Trump first raised it during his campaign. I still like it despite the turmoil his executive order closing the door to refugees apparently has created at some airports here and elsewhere. It was bound to cause problems. The only way to avoid them would be to continue the refugee influx.
Which I never quite understood to begin with. I recall the Vietnamese refugee situation in the 1970s and early 80s when National Guard bases in Arkansas and Pennsylvania were used to house them until sponsors could be found for each family and the guarantee of a job. But that was a different age it seems.
Barry Hussein seems to have been dumping them into small American towns, particularly in the midwest, without much if any planning. Of course he wouldn’t have sought to bother the coastal cities, where most of his party’s votes come from. He was by far the most partisan president in a generation.
Just why we are supposed to take these people, most of them Middle Eastern Muslims, has never been clear to me. Because of the fighting in Iraq and Syria? Barry’s policies created the refugee problems in both those places. Perhaps that’s why he felt the need to take them. But that’s his problem. It shouldn’t be ours.

UPDATE: Dilbert creator and Trump supporter Scott Adams on Trump’s strategy. I just hope that in negotiating back to the middle we don’t wind up with more refugees. Send ’em to Europe. Let the Germs be overwhelmed. They haven’t atoned near enough for the Holocaust. Give it another thousand years.
MEMRI, an outfit which translates the Arab world to show us their true attitudes behind the platitudes our pols and the dictator’s club hand us, occasionally hits the jackpot. As they did here. Watch these talk show clowns throw coffee and punches. You’ll see why Israel has so little hope of ever making peace with them.
We know the Hildabeast is bellicose. For a woman whose gender is supposed to be about cooperation, she is as competitive as any male. She engineered the death of Gaddafi who, for all his faults, was on our side at last. But now, incredibly, she’s talking about threatening the Russians, who have the nuclear arsenal Iran can only dream about.
Her major declared threat to them is to impose a no-fly zone over Syria, the same idea her husband Slick Willie championed and imposed on Iraq back in the 90s. But except for a few Turkish and other fighter-bombers over Syria, the majority of fliers and their aircraft are Russian.
Which explains why Putin’s government has been running civil defense exercises and talking about nuclear war. Even to the point of mentioning (at length) their new RS-28 Sarmat missile, dubbed the Satan 2, whose seventeen nuclear warheads they have pointedly claimed could wipe out a geographical area the size of Texas.
The Democrats are running new campaign ads claiming Trump would start a nuclear war, but other than a few naive remarks about nuclear weapons, he hasn’t threatened the only other nuclear power of any significance. Only the Democrat candidate has done that.
Not that the Russians likely would waste an RS 28 on us. Well, maybe on Houston with its oil terminals, which might takeout Louisiana, Arkansas and parts of Mississippi. More likely they would all go to the east and west coasts: DC, NYC, and LA. Maybe Felonia would figure that out in time and not let the confrontation get too hot.
She’s a notorious liar, after all, as well as a criminal. Maybe her no-fly zone is just more campaign bullshit, like her phony plan to tax the rich. We can only hope.
