As Democratic Elites Reunite With Neocons, the Party’s Voters Are Becoming Far More Militaristic and Pro-War Than Republicans

“I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in…And I do think you have to control your borders.”

Hillary Clinton, Nov. 9, 2015

The Democrats have played into Trump’s hands and given him a symbolic victory for his base, while ending up arguing for incompetent, ineffectual borders. Is that really the issue to burn down the country over? They knew that he liked to build things and stick his name on them, but they were determined beyond all sanity to prevent him from having this small bone. Now he is enabled to up the stakes and play his games on a much larger scale. He may declare a “national emergency” and attempt to seize emergency powers, with echoes of Nazi Germany.

Many in the Democratic Party have resorted to Trump’s game: just do the opposite. If Obama did it, Trump was against it. If Trump likes it, the Dem “#Resistance” automatically hates it with knee-jerk politics devoid of any thought and oblivious to their own hypocrisy. Democrats behaved this way over the proposed Syria invasion withdrawal–an illegal war that America has zero right to be involved in at all–and now over the proposed border wall or metal fence. It doesn’t matter to them if the policy is legitimate; they only want to contradict Trump. They’ve contradicted him into a major government shutdown with an air traffic control system that’s in a perilous state of sick-outs with no pay to critical workers.

“The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion…”

–U.S. Constitution, Article IV, Section 4.

The President has every right to make this an issue, as it’s literally a national security issue: the purview of the Commander in Chief. Trump knows this. Constitutionally, he’s on solid ground. One of the only legitimate uses of federal military and policing power is to defend the borders against incursion. This is business as usual, unexceptional around the world. States police their borders. It’s a major part of what defines a country.

It’s About the Money?

Is it really? The United States of America has closed up shop over $5 Billion dollars?

We apparently have $38 Billion in US taxpayer money to dump on the state of Israel. Those same politicians who don’t have money for domestic issues voted for the largest so-called foreign “aid” package in history to the apartheid state, a rogue state which remains in violation of more UN resolutions than any other.

But, fiscally, it’s even worse than this and quite shocking. Trump literally requested $48 Billion less in military spending than the Congress demanded in 2018. The military budget then jumped again to a “$160 billion boost in defense spending over two years.”

I don’t remember the impassioned Twitter storms, Facebook memes, or government shutdown over that additional $160 Billion for perpetual, illegal wars.

But $5 Billion allegedly breaks the bank, and America is over. Call me skeptical.

Unfortunately, this isn’t particularly new. It is a good analysis of the two-party fraud of a system though.

It would be obvious that Obama’s and Clinton’s cults are similar to Trump’s, and that the mental cleansing is similar. All negatives are cleansed, and all positives are blown out of proportion. That’s political propaganda in a nutshell, and a nutshell is the correct metaphor.

A particularly heinous meme circulates that Obama had “zero scandals.” The proof of this is a list of Trump’s scandals, as if there was logic to that. There is not. Ignoring your own favorite’s scandals has nothing to do with the other’s crimes. It boggles the mind, this attack on basic logic.

Obama’s scandals:

  1. Sided with Saudi terror sponsors over the victims of 9/11. This is Treason.
  2. Waged an illegal war on Libya, bombing ground targets in violation of the UN resolution. Helped Al Qaeda affiliate Libyan Islamic Fighting Group take over much of the country.
  3. Funded an illegal coup by neo-nazi elements in Ukraine.
  4. Armed, funded, and gave political cover to Al Qaeda in Syria in yet another illegal war that has murdered over half a million so far.
  5. Illegally spied on America. When Obama’s NSA chief James Clapper lied directly to Congress he was not prosecuted. Lying to Congress was ignored and became normalized.
  6. Protected CIA torturers–a felony–making the White House a co-conspirator to torture. Obama also protected all of the Bush war criminals with the nonsensical justification: “I prefer to look forward.” The point of law is to look backward at crimes that have been committed.

 

When you try and tell partisan propagandists anything whatsoever that scratches their bubble, they accuse you of being a Trump supporter, or worse, because they know nothing about the topics. More importantly, they CARE nothing about the topics or else they would know already. The crimes of their party are not to be understood or talked about. This is a formula for atrocity and tyranny. These people are malignant, a serious part of the problem, and should be confronted and demolished as needed.
