Now that we’ve seen reports of heavily “Hispanic” towns and cities in Texas voting GOP I’m wondering if the left is re-evaluating their border policies? It’s been joked for years that if they thought illegal immigrants would vote against them the left would have built the wall decades ago.

None of this should be a surprise, after all these folks didn’t leave one shithole to come to another


I really was taken by the report of the North Korean defector being amazed at the amount of censorship of thought going on around here lately. It was an important reminder that being American doesn’t confer immunity from tyranny stupidity, ignorance and most importantly cowardice without which none of these woke warriors would be able to function.

The degree of cowardice is simply astounding.


Our media has been very North Korean like lately or should I say it’s been that way for a while but only recently have they been publicly exposed in terms of lie after lie. So many that Donald Trump even took a victory lap in terms of how many false stories they pushed where he was right and they were wrong.

Spreading disinformation is dishonorable on their part. Knowing that it’s going on and doing nothing about it is dishonorable on our part.

The media and even the Biden Administration doesn’t care what we actually know as long as we play along and let them do it.


Of course the most North Korean thing going on has been the treatment of the Jan 6th protestors by this government in terms of charges, holding of people incommunicado etc. That this is going on while the people who literally burned cities were and still are given a pass is a national disgrace. That so many in law enforcement in the Capital and in the FBI are going along with this are a bigger disgrace.

I find myself turning to this speech from the 1935 Movie Captain Blood when he is asked at trial to plead Guilty or not Guilty to joining the Momouth’s rebellion:

Prosecutor: Peter Blood… guilty or not guilty?

Dr. Peter Blood: It’s entirely innocent, I am!

Clerk of the court: Take the stand and face his Lordship. [Peter Blood does so] Are you guilty or not guilty? You must use the right words.

Dr. Peter Blood: Words is it? Oh. Not guilty. And speaking of words, I’d like to say a few about the injustice of keeping an innocent man locked up for three months in such filth and heat and ill-feeding… that my chief regret is I didn’t try to pull down the filthy fellow that sits on the throne!

Who knew so many had ambitions to tyranny?


Finally I’ve noticed that on Rule Five Sundays at the other McCain Wombat (who is in charge of said post) has shifted from highlighting established stars to international cosplay girls in the lead of said post (many of them Russian).

Now while I acknowledge the cultural changes of the readership, concede that beauty is not confined by boarders and even smile at the idea of these young ladies making a living as models bypassing official agencies that might exploit them I really question the wisdom of those who might go to their sites and subscribe.

After all, in an age of ransomware attacks do you really want your credit card, bank or even paypal information in the hands of a Russian site just to look at some girl playing dress up?

Remember your information’s security is only as good as the least trustworthy or careful person holding it.

Apparently the rules about trading with nations that support terror are a bit more flexible than they should be:

While you were busy getting ready for Christmas,U.S. Approved Business With Blacklisted Nations

Despite sanctions and trade embargoes, over the past decade the United States government has granted special licenses allowing American companies to do billions of dollars in business with Iran and other countries blacklisted as state sponsors of terrorism, an examination by The New York Times has found.

Including Iran?

Yes, including Iran.

Not a good idea:

I share Fausta’s opinion on the wisdom of this, over on the left Firedoglake also objects:

Well, I see our foreign policy has really learned it’s lessons…and that lesson is how much of this profit goes to the Caymans?

Alas Attaturk being a person of the left draws the wrong conclusion:

It’s almost as though all that posturing about how evil some state is, is just posturing.

Yeah after all there is no reason to believe that we have anything to worry about with Iran is there?

Among the two most alarming revelations is the already completed sale and delivery, to Venezuela by Russia, of nearly 2,000 advanced, shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles capable of hitting aircraft as high as 19,000 feet. Equally and perhaps more alarming is an October agreement between Iran and Venezuela. The agreement establishes a joint ground-to-ground missile base on Venezuelan soil and calls for the sharing of missile technology and the training of technicians and officers. In addition, Venezuela may use the missiles as it chooses for “national needs” and in case of “emergency.” Several types of missiles will be deployed, giving Venezuela the ability to strike targets throughout South and Central America and throughout the U.S.

Well how bad can medium range missiles be in the hands of a guy like Chavez?

Medium-range ground-to-ground missiles based in Venezuela are another matter entirely. Armed only with conventional explosive warheads, there would be little motivation for Venezuela or Iran to use them, as even under Barack Obama, massive retaliation would be at least possible. The equation is swung more in favor of use with biological or chemical warheads. But with nuclear warheads, use becomes even more likely. What is almost certain is that nuclear warheads would allow substantial blackmail capability, giving Iran and Venezuela a free hand not only in South and Central America, but in the Middle East as well. And all that is apparently keeping Iran from producing such warheads is a computer virus.

Well it’s not like Iranians are actually fighting us on the ground or something….oops:

Coalition and Afghan special operations teams have captured a Taliban commander who doubles as an Iranian Qods Force operative and helped ship weapons from Iran into Afghanistan.

The Taliban/Qods Force operative, who was not named, was detained during a Dec. 18 raid in the Zhari district in Kandahar province, the International Security Assistance Force reported in a press release. ISAF and Afghan forces are currently working to secure Zhari and the neighboring districts of Panjwai and Arghandab from the Taliban.

Nah all that axis of evil stuff is just hooey, why look at how peaceful North Korea is?

North Korea threatened Thursday to launch a “sacred” nuclear war against South Korea if it attacks, as Seoul staged military exercises that have raised already high tensions on the peninsula.

The remarks seemed aimed at revving patriotic spirit on the eve of the 19th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il’s appointment as the supreme military commander.

Defense chief Kim Yong Chun said North Korea is “fully prepared to launch a sacred war” — and would use its nuclear capabilities — if attacked and warned the South against intruding even the smallest amount on its territory, according to the official Korean Central News Agency.

Yup nothing but peaceful folk there, as that noted war mongering extremist (per Morning Joe) Victor Davis Hanson said:

The present strategy in Korea? Who knows? But I think a prosperous South Korea is between the rock of hoping for the relatively nonviolent implosion of the failed state of North Korea in some sort of East German fashion, and the hard place of a communist thugocracy in the bunker lashing out in “we will take you down with us” fashion.

Yup no sign of evil there. After all they oppose the most oppressive homophobic force known to man, the US Military.

May our friends on the left always have the privilege of never finding out just how wrong they are the hard way.

….before I said this:

China is fine with both North Korean proliferation and development of nuclear weapons

and lo and behold what do the wikileaks reveal? China is aiding in nuclear proliferation:

Documents reveal China’s role in shipments of nukes to Iran

So much for the “China has its own Islamic militants so they aren’t going to help Islamic radicals get nukes”. China doesn’t have a problem with Islamic militants, they kill them, without mercy and without the chest beating that we have in you put a Koran in Gitmo the wrong side up on a table.

Anyone who thinks China is on our side is deluding themselves.

North Korea China and deluding yourself

Yesterday I was setting up in the studio for the RAVE show (Gary Rosen and Gary Vecchio) preceding Conservatively Speaking and the subject of North Korea came up where both Gary’s said that it was hard to deal with North Korea because you are dealing with “unstable” people.

As I’m typing this on Fox News the hosts said North Korea has nothing to lose by going to war.

Over and over we hear that we want China to restrain North Korea. All of this is in my opinion is wrong and based on some myths:

1. Myth one China wants to restrain North Korea: Wrong: China is fine with both North Korean proliferation and development of nuclear weapons. North Korea give China the ability to proliferate nuclear weapons to groups who oppose us and our interests without being directly involved. If you think that the North Koreans were able to get where they were without China technological aid then you are out of your mind.

There are two primary targets for the Chinese army. One is their own people and the other is the US. It is not fashionable to say it but China is our primary enemy and we are theirs. We trade, we exchange culture, but our goals are diametrically opposed. Anyone who thinks otherwise is deluding themselves.

Mind you the Chinese people themselves are awesome. You will not find harder working, more dedicated and more culturally centered people out there. If China would lose the communistic oppression and the evil that comes with it there would be no limit to what they could achieve.

2. Myth two: North Korea’s rulers are “irrational” or “unstable”

This is a cop-out. If you want to understand the rulers of North Korea think of an unjust feudal Lord. North Korea is a vast feudal estate where the Lord of the manor keeps all for himself and feeds his troops to give him power. He gives only enough to his subjects to keep who they need alive.

It is not irrational it is entirely rational. The NK government knows that its people are starving, they don’t care, the only thing that matters is their leaders comfort and keeping the military well fed and loyal. Watch a few episodes of the old Richard Greene Robin Hood series if you want to understand their mindset

3. Myth three: North Korea’s threats of war are serious:

This is the biggest myth out there. The North Korean government is terrified of a war. Why, because the North Korean Army isn’t an army. It is the bodyguard for the Jong Il family. The moment any war begins three things happen:

a) The nuclear areas are toast

b) The Army is toast

c) The Jon Il family is dead

If the nuclear power is gone then they can’t shake down the west. If the army is massacred then they can’t control their own people, and if they are dead…then they are dead. Again you have to stop thinking of North Korea as anything other than a feudal kingdom of the Jong Il family subject to their Chinese masters. The Jong Il’s don’t care if the country starves or even if half a million of their own soldiers are dead, all they care about is their own comfort. Period.

If it is VERY clear that any attack on South Korea means smart bombs in the Jong Il Household and carpet bombing of the military, the game is over.
