‘Sometimes A Society Becomes Too Stupid To Survive’

15 June 2014 @ 01:02

Welcome to America in 2014 A.D.

Notice that I did not refer to us as ‘The United States Of America’ because:

1) We are a nation that is no longer united in the Cultural or Societal sense and no republican form of government can survive without such a union that transcends physical existence;

2) In too many areas, the Power And Control reserved to the Several States has been taken over by the national government;

3) And in those areas where the Several States retain Power And Control, they often refuse to use it to fight the Despotic encroachments of the national government [even in Red States], thus rendering the Federalist balance of Powers void;

4) In too many areas where neither the national government nor the Several States have been delegated Power and Control, they have seized it from The Sovereign People; and

5) The Constitution is no longer operable, which means the government it created no longer exists and that government was named ‘The United States Of America’, so whatever this new Despotic State is, it most certainly cannot be called by that old name.

Because this new Tyrannical Regime has not seen fit to name itself, I have chosen to refer to it simply as ‘America’.

Now, let us turn to the foreign front…

Leave it to a foreign citizen [though he is in many ways more American than a good number of us today] to sum-up the pathetic state of our international standing.

Mark Steyn on Wednesday:

Obama and Clinton ended the war in Iraq by losing it. They “pivoted” from Iraq to Afghanistan, and wound up losing both. Hillary crowed over Gaddafi’s corpse – “We came, we saw, he died” – and then sat by as her ambassador and best friend “Chris” was devoured by the mob: He died, she sat by, we’re gone. The Arab Spring that [Fareed] Zakaria claims “crippled” al-Qaeda delivered Egypt to the Muslim Brotherhood and a military coup, Tunisia to soft Islamists, Libya to ever harder Islamists, and much of Syria and Iraq to jihadists too hardcore for “mainstream” al-Qaeda.

And so the US Embassy in Baghdad readies for its Saigon moment – for the helicopters on the roof, and the executions of the “friends” they left behind.

The Obama dominoes tumble: Benghazi, Mosul, and soon Kabul. But it doesn’t matter because, as the Administration has assured us and as far too many Americans seem willing to believe, wars end when the ADHD superpower decides to take its ball and go home….

To the people who cheered when those towers tumbled 13 years ago, there is no Bush, no Obama, no Clinton. There is only America. And when the black flag of al Qaeda is raised in Baghdad it will be seen, correctly, as an American defeat. We have told the world something about ourselves, and the world will conduct its affairs accordingly.

 

Mark Steyn from Friday Morning:

…things that would shatter any other presidency barely ripple the surface of Barack Obama’s.

For example, a few days ago, the President released a quintet of dangerous prisoners back to the enemies amid assurances from John Kerry that any suggestion they might return to the battlefield was “baloney”. It now emerges that the aforementioned Mr al-Baghdadi, the guy who is about to snaffle Iraq, its oil fields, its state-of-the-art military hardware, and the most expensive US embassy ever built away from the Americans and inflict on the Great Satan its biggest humiliation in four decades is also a prematurely released American detainee. What an inspiring tale al-Baghdadi’s story must be to those five Afghans.

As I usually say round about this point, sometimes a society becomes too stupid to survive.

We have become Stupid — destroyers of Free Worlds.

    I understand John Kerry puts a lot of ketchup on his baloney! While he was assuring the world that the Taliban Five wouldn’t return to the battlefield, Hillary was telling the world that “These five guys are a threat to the safety and security of Afghanistan and Pakistan”.

    Because every country releases men who are a threat to their allies!

    America’s enemies are here at home and we’d better do something decisive about this or we are done. Imagine what it will take to earn respect from the world after Obama and Clinton.

    Great post and I agree 100%

    I just have one beef with the post though.
    The upside down Flag.

    I know it has become popular to fly the flag upside down in protest, saying in effect “Our nation is in distress”, And I agree it is.
    But that is NOT what the upside down flag is for.

    Flying the flag upside down is to say that YOU… HERE AND NOW… Need emergency service. Fire, Medical, Police.
    It’s like calling 911.

    You don’t call 911 to complain about the government doing wrong.
    You don’t fly the Flag upside down to “protest” that the nation is in trouble.
    You Fly the Flag upside down when YOU personally, are in an immediate Life/death situation.

    Flying it upside down simply in protest is wrong and disrespectful to the flag.
    Though I understand it is not meant to be disrespectful… it IS.
    Just as disrespectful as Liberals dragging her in the dirt or burning her in protest.
    Or well meaning Patriots wearing clothing not with an image of a flag, but with clothing designed to look as though it is MADE from an actual Flag. The Flag is not apparel.

    Other than the upside down flag, Great post, and Great Blog!
    Keep up the good work!
