The American Left And Its Eco-Nazis Are Certifiably Crazy

28 08 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Man-made “global warming” is a hoax that has been perpetrated globally by America’s Left and eco-Nazis.  Our planet has gone through warming and cooling cycles for millions of years, which will continue after each of us and our offspring are long gone.[2]

Pollution is a separate issue, which is being ignored by the Left and its self-anointed leaders.  They continue to pollute, and do nothing about the pollution in our oceans and space, or about the world’s two biggest polluters, India and China.[3]

The Left’s—aka eco-Nazis’—latest perverted brainchild is to ban gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles completely, even though under President Donald Trump we were essentially energy independent and self-sufficient, and able to draw on America’s vast natural resources to satisfy our needs.[4]

Joe Biden and his ilk would rather import oil from our enemies, and feed their war machines.  Why not ban electric vehicles, and dispense with the politicians in Washington, D.C., Sacramento and elsewhere who push for their supremacy?

There Is Nothing Progressive About A Democrat

18 08 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

As I wrote years ago, there is nothing “progressive” about a Democrat. It is a term they have used, abused and co-opted in an attempt to mask, obscure and hide their true identities, evil intentions and deeds. When I left the U.S. Senate, I went a step farther to conclude that the Democrats are “evil” but smart, while the Republicans are “Neanderthals” and dumb. I have never changed that opinion, and have been an Independent ever since.[2]

I began as a Democrat, but can’t conceive of ever voting for one again. They have moved so far to the Left as to be almost totally unrecognizable. They are un-American fascists, unbridled anarchists, unapologetic racists, blatant anti-Semites and everything else that is evil. Stated bluntly and succinctly, they are the party that Barack Obama created, and they are a mirror image of him. Any doubts, read his book, “Dreams from My Father.”[3]

Their mission has been to destroy the opposition, which is the goal of every fascist, authoritarian regime. Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse-tung were masters at it, and killed millions of human beings in the process.[4] The Democrats came after Richard Nixon, and used Sam Giancana and the Chicago mob to fix the elections in Chicago and West Virginia.

When Nixon won the presidency years later, they used Watergate to destroy him. Then, they targeted Ronald Reagan with “Iran Contra,” even though Reagan had survived an assassination attempt, and had brought down the “Evil Empire” of the Soviet Union without a shot being fired.[5]

Next, their target was Donald Trump, who was a flamboyant businessman and had the audacity to challenge them and the so-called Washington “elite” or “establishment,” and their imbedded bureaucracy at all levels of government that had been carefully nurtured over the decades. Their efforts to destroy him have been brutal and relentless, beginning the day that he and his wife Melania came down the escalator at Trump Tower in New York City and announced his candidacy.

After rigging elections across the country and installing the mentally-challenged Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the presidency—who have been destroying America and putting it at the mercy of our enemies, principally China and Russia—they are hell-bent in stopping Trump from ever challenging them again. The raid on his home at Mar-a-Lago in Florida by rogue, Gestapo-like FBI agents is their latest attempt to destroy him.

Undoubtedly authorized by Biden and his Obama-laden advisors, it was carried out by the Attorney General Merrick Garland, whose quest for a seat on our Supreme Court had been denied. FBI Director Christopher Wray approved the raid, as did a Florida Magistrate Bruce Reinhart who had helped Jeffrey Epstein’s abusers when he was in the private practice of law.

If the Democrats could “kill” Trump, they would. He is hated; and his very presence constitutes a threat to their control of the United States and the American people. Leave aside the fact that our enemies want to destroy us, the Democrats are hell-bent on destroying him and everything he and his supporters stand for. Like Reagan before him, he is the polar opposite of them, which is why he is hated like Abraham Lincoln was[6]. Are there reasonable rank-and-file Democrats who are appalled by what is happening?  Sure there are, but they do not control the party—or perhaps even influence it today.

Is America Doomed By Its Enemies, Foreign And Domestic?

15 08 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

If the despicable Democrats are not destroyed in November’s elections, and if their multi-year efforts against our great President Donald Trump are successful, the United States may be destroyed and will not rise again.  They are like vermin and vicious animals, which must be put down and eradicated; and yes, lots of us began as Democrats.[2]

Aside from George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan—who the evil Left despises, maligns and tried to destroy—Donald Trump may be our most courageous President.  If he goes, America goes with him, and is finished.  Brain Dead Joe Biden, his traitorous Democrats, the DOJ and the FBI continue to attack him, by raiding his home in Florida, Mar-a-Lago, and ascribing criminality to him.[3]

They have tried to destroy him since he and our lovely First Lady Melania came down the escalator at Trump Tower in New York City, when their quest for the presidency began.  It has been a nonstop assault on his family and him, and those who have supported him.  This is evil personified, and no different than the evil perpetrated by America’s enemies, who seek to destroy all of us.[4]

The Unhinged Left Is America’s Enemy

9 07 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

When I left the United States Senate, I concluded that the Democrats were “evil” but smart, while the Republicans were “Neanderthals” and dumb.[2]  I have never changed that opinion.  Quite to the contrary, I believe it today more fervently than ever; and I am not alone.[3].  And yes too, I began as a Democrat but doubt that I will vote for one ever again.

Where does one begin to chronicle the Left’s certifiable madness and hatred of the America that so many of us love?  Perhaps with their devout support of Infanticide.[4]  Or with the enabling of young Americans to switch genders; or with “gender fluidity”—the ability to switch back and forth, with the help of drugs.  Or perhaps with easy access to other life-changing drugs that can kill, such as Fentanyl, which are sometimes disguised as other drugs when they enter our country.[5]

Or with opening our borders so that all types of criminals—including human traffickers, members of the drug cartels, and outright killers—can come here; or by never incarcerating them, even if they commit all types of crimes.  Or by releasing those who do.

It’s as if the Gates of Hell have been opened wide, and everything that is evil and Godless has been released on America.  Perhaps it began when China sent its deadly Coronavirus to us, which has hurt so many: physically, psychologically and economically.  It is mutating now; and other strains or variants are emerging, and will show up as monkeypox and by other names.

Tragically, America’s domestic enemies begin with Joe Biden, Barack Obama and the Clintons.  Each is pure evil, personified.[6]  Our enemies abroad know that, and seem to be seizing every opportunity that presents itself.  From Vladimir Putin’s butchery in Ukraine, to Xi Jinping’s efforts to destroy the U.S. economy and weaken the American people, our enemies are not resting until we are prostrate.

They are trying to do to America what Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush did to the former Soviet Union: destroy us.[7]  In a sense, they make no bones about it, at least since Biden became President.  The gloves are off—the game is on.  The stakes are the future of the world.  They couldn’t be higher. Wake up Americans.  Your future and that of your children and their children are at stake.  Our enemies are playing for keeps.  If we were in their shoes, with Biden in the White House, we would be too.[8]

Lastly, Biden is not our President and never will be.  He is a caricature of what a real man is supposed to be, who has been foisted on us by the evil Democrats and Left.  He is a imposter who is occupying our White House and making a mockery of it.  On the global stage, he is a pathetic buffoon at a pivotal moment in history.  And Kamala Harris may be even worse, if that’s humanly possible.[9]

Let The Celebrations Begin—Putin Will Die Soon

5 05 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Vladimir Putin will die, hopefully a grisly death.  This is an immutable fact—of how the civilized world views him.  He alone is principally responsible for the killing of innocent Ukrainians; the raping and disfigurement of Ukrainian women, men and children; and the suffering of so many.

The more he suffers, the louder and longer will be the exhalations and celebrations.  He and Russians are viewed as global pariahs, and very sick perverts.[2]  Yes, that may seem harsh, cruel and even Godless, but what he has done to destroy Ukraine and its courageous people is sadistic and barbaric at the very least.  He is pure evil, incarnate.

Soon, Russia may implode like the Soviet Union before it, and exist no more.  Putinism will die with Putin.[3]  The rape of approximately 2 million German women by the Soviet military—aka Russian barbarians—when they entered Berlin at the end of World War II, will have been avenged, somewhat.

Now a healing must take place, or at least begin, among Ukrainians.  Those who fled their country must be welcomed back; and its heroes must be honored.  Families must be reconstituted; and rebuilding must take place.  Like the fall of the USSR, and in particular Berlin and Dresden in East Germany (or the DDR), reconstruction will erase the most visible scars of a war that will never be forgotten.

Lastly, America’s despicable Left—aka Democrats or so-called “Progressives”—have rigged our elections since the days of John F. Kennedy.  They have encouraged riots in our streets by the thugs, slugs, hoods and mongrels of “Black Lives Matter,” Antifa and other far-Left groups, which have killed or hurt innocent Americans including our police; and destroyed black and other businesses.  Now, they are rioting again and trying to subvert decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court.[4]

Russia Must Not Be Crippled, But Destroyed Like The Soviet Union Before It

30 04 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

The Soviet Union is dead and buried. I was in Berlin when it happened; and I cheered it on.[2]  Soviet soldiers were selling their uniforms and plumbing fixtures from their barracks, and going back to “tent cities” in the once-mighty USSR.

It was a humiliating experience for them.  Having been a KGB killer in East Germany (or the DDR), surely Vladimir Putin remembers this well.  The “Iron Curtain” that separated East from West crumbled overnight; and the ominous guard towers were gone.

Pat Buchanan—an adviser to Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford, and a former GOP presidential aspirant himself—has asked “Will Putin Submit To US-Imposed ‘Weakening’?”[3]  The answer is that he will not have a choice if he is dead and buried, like Adolf Hitler before him. As I have written previously:

Russia is weaker today than the former USSR before it collapsed.  It spans nine time zones and includes 160 ethnic groups that speak an estimated 100 languages.  It is by no means monolithic, and may crumble “overnight.”  Once Putin is gone, Russia may be dismembered—never to rise again—with China taking part (e.g., Siberia, which it covets) and the rest becoming independent states like the former Yugoslavia.

Each of the new states will act in its own best interests, just as has been true in the former Yugoslavia, and among the countries that were spun off from the USSR—which have thrived as part of the West. Putinism will not survive Putin.  It will suffer an ignominious death, like its namesake; and constitute a tragic watershed in history, like Adolf Hitler’s “Thousand Year Reich” and Nazism.[4]

If this does not happen, China will likely move on Taiwan; and World War III may have begun in earnest.[5]  Having given us the deadly Coronavirus pandemic, Taiwan would be the next logical step for Xi Jinping and China’s other despotic rulers.

After all, they have snuffed out Hong Kong’s fledgling democracy; enslaved approximately 1 million ethnic minorities including the Uyghurs; used EMP weapons to “fry” Indian soldiers in their border war with that country; and implemented draconian Covid restrictions in Shanghai and elsewhere.[6]

All of this hinges on the death of Putin.[7]  He must be butchered; symbolically torn from limb to limb; and it must happen now, not weeks or months from now.  His death may partially atone for the sins of Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse-tung—each a mass killer who will welcome Putin at the Gates of Hell.

When the first Ukrainian died, Putin should have died.[8]

Russians Are The Walking Dead

23 04 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

There are reasons to believe that the end is approaching for Russia’s KGB-trained killer and butcher, Vladimir Putin.  Visible signs are present that his health is failing, perhaps even faster than that of his nemesis Joe Biden.[2]  When Putin dies, there will be global sighs of relief that pure evil has been eradicated from the Earth.  At the very least, both American women and men will rejoice and celebrate that he is gone.

However, that will not end this tragic period in world history.  Approximately 80 percent of Russians have supported him.  They will be the lepers or “untouchables” of the world, who are shunned globally—each and every one of them.  When World War II ended, Americans refused to buy German and Japanese cars.  On my first trip to Europe 20 years later, I bought and drove a Volkswagen Beetle; and I will never forget being in Holland where a Dutch farmer asked why an American was driving a German car.

This may be the legacy of Putin’s killing machine, long after it has been laid to rest, like Hitler’s before it.  Women will remember their counterparts in Ukraine who had to be buried in closed caskets, without their loved ones viewing them, because what had been done to them was so atrocious and inhuman.  Babies, young kids, Ukrainian men, and the elderly bespeak tales of torture, starvation and the like.

Russians are savages.  They have been that way for generations.  It seems to be bred into them.  Yes, to generalize or paint with a broad brush is often unfair and even irresponsible.  But one example will suffice.  As stated previously:

When [Joseph Stalin’s] military forces entered Berlin at the end of World War II, they raped an estimated 2 million German women, the largest mass raping and degradation of women in human history.  A former secretary of mine was a young girl there; and she told me that she had seen things which were unspeakable, and no human being should ever see.”[3]

These were the ancestors or progenitors of today’s Russians, who are the walking dead of the world.  While the Russian military has been proving itself to be inept, and comprised of butchers[4]—which will not be forgotten by the world for at least a generation—Putin does have nukes that he may use in Ukraine and elsewhere, out of desperation.

Putin Must Die Now

16 04 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

The title of this article may seem absurd or even repugnant to some.  But the atrocities and destruction in Ukraine may only stop when Russia’s KGB-trained killer Vladimir Putin is dead, like Adolf Hitler before him.  Otherwise, such madness may continue and broaden into a much-wider war, possibly international in scope.

The savagery and brutality that Putin has unleashed is unspeakable, obscene and inhuman, with potentially much worse yet to come.  Ukrainian women have been raped and tortured.  Their babies have been killed or orphaned.  Their husbands or significant others have died or been wounded, or taken prisoner by Putin’s animals, perhaps never to be seen alive again.

All of this is what Joseph Stalin did.  When his military forces entered Berlin at the end of World War II, they raped an estimated 2 million German women, the largest mass raping and degradation of women in human history.  A former secretary of mine was a young girl there; and she told me that she had seen things which were unspeakable, and no human being should ever see.

What Putin has done and continues doing defies all notions of a civilized world, and is barbaric.  But this is all he knows, and it is consistent with the rest of his life.[2]  None of this will end until he is dead.  There is no other way, and he knows it.  A tragic commentary on Russians today is that most of them support him.  Thus, they too have the blood of innocents on their hands.  Even if they are treated as lepers, and ostracized by much of the world for a generation, many or most will not change.

Years ago I was in Germany; and a German woman told me that the only thing wrong with Adolf Hitler was that he had not killed all of the Jews.[3]  Her family had supported his rise to power in Munich; and I listened because I wanted to understand the history of the past, as well as existing German sentiments.

At the end of that tragic war, Germany was divided, with the Soviet Union taking East Berlin and East Germany, or the DDR, which became the most repressive regime in the Soviet Union’s orbit, and where Putin perfected his art of killing.  He is truly a monster now, but many residents of the former DDR support him.  Also, he is spreading disinformation in the United States and the West.  But the truth gets through.[4]

The Godless Putin must die.  How it happens and by whose hand is unknown.  However, the civilized world owes it to future generations to end the atrocities that Putin has inflicted on Ukraine and elsewhere, just as Americans of what has been described as “The Greatest Generation”—and their allies in other nations—sacrificed for us.

We cannot allow World War III to begin in earnest in distant Ukraine.  Putin must be put down now, like a rabid animal.  And the courageous Ukrainians have shown us the way.  They must not die or suffer in vain.  Indeed, the resurrection of those who have died will begin with Putin’s death.

Global Chaos And Helter Skelter—Revisited

12 04 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Almost seven years ago, an article was published here that addressed these issues.[2]  Today, after China’s deadly Coronavirus pandemic has swept the Earth and continues to kill[3], and Russia’s KGB-trained killer Vladimir Putin has unleashed unspeakable atrocities in Ukraine[4]—with “co-conspirators” Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the White House, who have failed to give the Ukrainians enough help to win and avoid being slaughtered[5]—it is fair to revisit the issues discussed in that article.

They are important and affect each of us, as well as the lives, well-being and futures of our loved ones. The Coronavirus lockdowns alone have changed our lives in countless ways; and just when we believed that the global crisis has passed, a new “variant” or mutation emerges that might take us almost back to square one.  The so-called “experts” tell us that the vaccines and their boosters may not protect us, and that masking and “social distancing” may be necessary again.[6]  Yet, most Americans ignore them.[7]

Although Putin’s death may bring the tragedy of his existence to an end, along with so much suffering, American military “experts” predict that the genocide in Ukraine may last for years, and spread.[8]  If anyone believes that the horrors visited on the world by Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse-tung are consigned to the past, think again.  They have been occurring each and every day in Ukraine, brought to that country and its galant people by Putin and his Russian animals.[9]

Also, China may be poised to begin the next phase of “World War III” in Taiwan.  Having destroyed Hong Kong’s fledgling democracy, and enslaved approximately 1 million ethnic minorities including the Uyghurs, and having launched EMP weapons to “fry” Indian soldiers in its border war with that country, China’s Xi Jinping may prove to be just as vicious and inhuman as Putin.[10]

Biden, Putin and China are central to any discussion because they may be in the process of bringing us World War III with earth-shattering horrors, and throwing all of the other issues into a cocked hat.  By launching the Coronavirus pandemic, China changed world history.  By “rigging” America’s presidential elections in 2020, with the help of our woke and Leftist media, Biden assumed the presidency and has been systemically destroying the United States ever since.

His humiliating withdrawal from Afghanistan told Putin and Xi Jinping all they needed to know, which was underscored by his televised performances that were embarrassing at best.  Why hold back?  Why not strike while he is still America’s President?  The only thing more catastrophic might be a Harris presidency, or no presidency at all.  And Putin and Xi Jinping could not wait until the national elections of 2022, when the Democrats might lose the Congress, and the pendulum might begin to swing back in a Donald Trump-oriented direction.

As stated seven years ago, for many Americans, the world seems upside down or topsy-turvy, and headed for unbelievable—if not unprecedented—chaos, calamity and helter skelter.  This was and is true today: economically, militarily, socially, and in countless other ways.  Countries and global regions are coming apart at the seams; accepted institutions are attacked; lives are uprooted or ended in truly savage ways; and little seems sacred or even predictable anymore.

An unfathomable global economic crash is predicted, unlike anything that we have witnessed in our lifetimes.  In addition to Russia and China, North Korea continues to be a loose cannon; the Middle East is imploding, with much worse yet to come; and terrorists stalk the world, creating death and destruction.

Human trafficking, organ harvesting and sexual slavery flourish, while the problems with illegal immigration and drugs seem endless and insoluble.  Accepted views of marriage and gender identity are being rewritten; and divorces seem to be the norm.  The inmates are running the asylum.  Organized religion is under attack.  America’s history is challenged as being racist, with attempts being made to rewrite it.  Riots have been occurring in American cities, provoked by hoods, thugs and criminals; and crime is omnipresent.

So-called man-made “global warming” and “climate change” are being pushed worldwide, even though it is clear that our planet has gone through warming and cooling periods for millions of years.  Americans’ trust in business, Congress and our elected officials, the law and judiciary, the police, government in general—and in the future—are shaken each and every day.  The old “norms” seem to be gone.  Replacing them appears to be anarchy, certainly in the Middle East and Africa.  Countries and regions are fragmenting; and order and the value of human lives are in short supply.

Those who stay abreast of the news see barbarism in action, which is all too reminiscent of what is portrayed in Hollywood films.  Yet, whether one is a Republican or a Democrat or an Independent or something else—and regardless of one’s skin color, ethnicity or religious beliefs—there is hope.  God does exist, and guides our individual and collective lives, albeit we may ignore that fact at times.[11]

America Is Led By A Visibly Incompetent Blunderer, Whose Incautious Public Blusterings Can Be Taken No More Seriously Than The Rantings Of A Child

8 04 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

The title of this article are the words of Wilfred McClay, a professor of history at Hillsdale College, which are worth reading and reflecting on:

Forty-four days into the Russian invasion of Ukraine, evidence continues to accumulate of Russian brutalities and hideous atrocities inflicted upon the people of that long-suffering land.

The mass graves and corpses littering the streets in the town of Bucha tell a horrifying tale of wanton and indiscriminate murder, and many world leaders — including President Joe Biden — are labeling the Russian actions war crimes.

There have been thousands of innocent victims—5,000 alone in the city of Mariupol—and their blood cries out from the ground.

Yet it is far from clear what we in the United States can or should do.

We can join other countries in imposing economic sanctions on Russia.

We can increase the supply of weapons to Ukraine, including high-tech arms, amid concerns that Russia is about to launch a large offensive in Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region.

We can continue to dial up the volume of our moral indignation, our condemnation of Vladimir Putin, our treatment of the Russian nation as an international pariah, most recently by suspending Russia from the United Nations’ Human Rights Council.

But it seems unlikely that such actions will accomplish much, even as our national leaders repeat their empty vow to do ‘everything we can’ for the Ukraine.

‘We want to see this come to an end as quickly as possible,’ Secretary of State Anthony Blinken told NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell on April 6. ‘And that’s exactly why we’re making sure we’re doing everything we can to support Ukraine…’

Of course, America is not doing ‘everything we can’.

We have all but ruled out the type of assistance requested by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, such as a no-fly zone over his desperate country.

President Joe Biden has pledged that American troops will not directly engage with Russian forces.

So, what explains this glaring self-delusion?

And don’t our traditions demand more of us?

Americans are a compassionate people, we say, and surely we cannot stand idly by while such barbarity is unleashed and allowed free reign.

We have a proud heritage, it will be said, of coming to the aid of the suffering people of the world, the homeless and the tempest-tossed.

Moreover, the Ukrainian effort to resist the Russians is a just and valiant one, consonant with the longstanding American commitment to self-rule and national self-determination.

Can our consciences permit us to look away?

Our traditions and our history do not speak with one clear voice, though.

There has always been a tension in the American mind, between assuming a posture of restraint and aloofness from the world, and one of zealous engagement and intervention.

In 1831 John Quincy Adams, reacting to calls for American intervention in Greece, declared that ‘America goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy.’

That memorable statement, so reflective of the country’s heritage of republican government, supplied much of the basis for American foreign policy during the nineteenth century.

But with the Spanish-American War of 1898, which was (not coincidentally) sparked by Spanish atrocities committed against the people of Cuba, this changed.

By the twentieth century Adams’s restraint had been replaced by the crusading zeal of leaders like Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, who sought to cover the earth with American influence, and go in search of monsters to destroy.

It would be a terrible injustice to deny the beneficence of American influence over the course of the twentieth century.

Neither of the two great world wars could have been brought to a close with an Allied victory without the strength and sacrifice supplied by the United States.

The world has good reason to be grateful.

But we have not been consistent in dealing with cases of atrocity.

A few examples.

There will always be a pall hanging over Franklin Roosevelt’s administration for its failure to do more to forestall the murder of European Jews in Germany’s death camps.

True, we took part NATO’s bombing campaign against Yugoslavia in 1999, which was prompted by Yugoslavia’s ethnic cleansing of Albanians.

But in the Biafran genocide of the late 1960s in which some 2 million were killed; there was little response from the US government, though much response from non-governmental organizations.

And there was a similar lack of response to the Rwandan massacres of 1994, in which nearly 700,000 died.

But that is not all.

If we are to soberly contemplate the limits on our actions in Ukraine, a terrible reality must be faced.

We have in recent years accumulated a dismal record of failing to honor the pledges we have made to the people we propose to aid, and as a result, we have contributed to the immense suffering of those who had relied upon us.

That was one of the indelible legacies of the war in Vietnam.

And more recently, with the nation’s colossally damaging bug-out from Afghanistan last year, and now with the situation in Ukraine, that record has become even more toxic.

As satisfying as it is for us to moralize about Putin’s being an evil and demonic man, we seem to have forgotten that in the early 1990s, Ukraine’s leadership was induced to disarm the country and abandon its stockpile of nuclear weapons, in exchange for signed guarantees from the international community ensuring its future security.

What are those guarantees worth now?

Would any of today’s carnage be happening if Ukraine had kept those weapons?

What lesson will other nations draw from this betrayal?

What is our moral responsibility for having created this state of affairs?

No, the unfortunate truth is that the credibility of our country and governing class stands at a low point.

The biggest obstacle to our taking effective action in the world is ourselves—our largely self-imposed economic, military, and moral weakness.

In today’s political climate, with America’s international leadership ebbing fast, and its presidential office occupied by a visibly incompetent blunderer, whose incautious public blusterings can be taken no more seriously than the rantings of a child, the United States is simply in no shape to take on the long and complex work of international diplomacy.

Based on our recent track record, there is no reason to believe we have the capacity, as a nation, to sustain a serious effort in that direction.

Instead, since at least the 2000 election, we have saved most of our energies for vicious and unproductive domestic politics, including an astonishingly deceitful effort, undertaken with the support of high-ranking officials in our intelligence agencies, to convince the American people that their president had been elected by means of ‘collusion’ with the Russians.

Now that this effort has collapsed, though with no one being punished for it, the American people are confused and distrustful of their own rulers.

They are properly horrified by Putin’s actions in Ukraine. But they are not willing to take serious and sacrificial actions on the orders of a ruling elite that they do not trust.

Who can blame them?

We have been living in a dream world, thinking that our conspicuous internal divisions, exposed to all the world, would never be used against us, someday and somehow, to maximum effect.

We are paying the price for having been, for too long, an unserious nation governed by unserious people.

We can come back from this, as we have come back from folly and decadence before. But there is not much more time to waste.

And of course, Putin is far from being the most formidable of our adversaries.

Let us hope that the current crisis in Ukraine will begin to wake us up.[2]

Professor McClay’s words are sobering, and may prove to be prophetic.  We have adversaries globally who want to destroy us and our allies, and reinstitute the “dark ages.”  Two of them are Vladimir Putin and China’s Xi Jinping who launched the Coronavirus pandemic that has killed so many globally.
