The Human Female Animal Is NOT Born to Become a Problem Solver…..And then there was Margaret Thatcher, 40 Years Ago!

MAGGIE, 40 YEARS ON

by Steven Hayward   at PowerLine:

Today is the 40th anniversary of the election of Margaret Thatcher as the first female prime minister of Great Britain—a precursor of the election the following year of Ronald Reagan.

Before her arrival many people thought England’s long, slow postwar decline was irreversible.  “Britain is becoming a third world country . . . an offshore industrial slum,” Economist magazine correspondent Robert Moss wrote in 1977. Daniel Yergin and Joseph Stanislaw recall in their book The Commanding Heights of the episode when Thatcher visited the Conservative party’s research department after she became party leader, where she found a party staffer writing a paper on how the Tory party should adopt a “middle way” between left and right. Thatcher erupted.  “She was not interested in refurbishing Harold Macmillan,” Yergin and Stanislaw recount. “Instead, she reached into her brief case and pulled out a book.  It was [Friedrich] Hayek’s The Constitution of Liberty.  She held it up for all to see.  ‘This,’ she said sternly, ‘is what we believe.’  She slammed it down on the table and then proceeded to deliver a monologue on the ills of the British economy.”

If the the feminist and identify politics left were sincere about their demands for “diversity” and female representation at the summits of power, Thatcher would be one of their patron saints. Certainly she was not averse to feminist sentiments, such as her famous early (1965) comment that “If you want a speech made you should ask a man, but if you want something done you should ask a woman.” But of course the feminist/diversicrat left is really interested in leftism, not “diversity.” I recall that back in the 1980s feminists would refer to Thatcher (also Jeane Kirkpatrick, then our UN ambassador) as “female impersonators.”

The Adam Smith Institute in London has this nice recollection of Thatcher’s top ten achievements in office, among which my favorite is Number 10:

By taking a firm stand against Soviet aggression and expansionism, and supporting President Reagan by deploying US missiles to counter Soviet missile deployment, she was instrumental in bringing the Cold War to its end in victory for the West and freedom for those who had suffered under Communist dictatorships.

Just now, with our socialist moment in American politics, it is worth recalling her fabulous smackdown of socialism in the House of Commons (Memo to: President Trump—take notes on this):

And in contrast to the current female prime minister of Britain, I think we know how she would handle Brexit:

WELCOME BACK, CJack!!

THE UNHAPPY SNAKE IN THE GRASS, SLIPPERY BOA MUELLER, MOANS!

Response to article by CJack at cinnamonjack.wordpress.com

The Devil is the Father of All Lies: Obama, the Kremlin mole from Nairobi who crawled into the Oval Office…

The Kremlin mole, Barack Obama, is at it again…Now he’s about to publish another one of his classic garbage-can books filled with fantasies, rage, self-loathing, envy and finger-pointing. In his new ‘novella’ he’s slicin’ an’ dicin’ the Hilde Beast for running a scripted soulless campaign that cost him a hands-on involvement in the most assured Hilde Beast administration…

Isn’t America a wonderful place where a penniless community organizer with a ‘suspect’ Harvard law degree ‘progress’ from being a loquacious political conman without two nickels to rub at the 2004 Boston DNC Convention to be elected, in only four years after that disjointed convention, to the highest office in our land? Yes, it happened in ‘racist’ America. The charlatanry of a mocha ‘cartoon character’ in an empty-suit, was effectively sold to a nation tired of being stamped all over the globe as a racist nation; and America gave in to the propaganda of that Hollywood bunch of derelict fantasy-film producers in control of our mindless, over-entertained, overfed, under-educated and politically complacent nation. And we elected our first emperor; overnight our country, once seen as a place where self-discipline and hard work would be well rewarded, was transformed into a social-assistance haven brimming with baskets of welfare checks, food stamps, free medical assistance, free education, free everything…a ‘Nirvana’ where big brother would take care of us from the cradle to the grave.

Thank God in my generation it was quite the opposite. When my parents determined that it was time for me to earn my keep, I began to deliver milk and cream every morning from Monday to Friday, before going to school. I would collect the empty bottles in the afternoon after school before I got home. On Fridays I was to retrieve the bottles, return them to the dairy business and be home at least an hour before sunset. Those work habits and discipline have steered me to date. It was old wisdom passed on to me by my ancestors; that earn-your-keep wisdom I have passed on to my children.

But fear not, the Lord has not abandoned America—the Mueller report is there for all to see the extent of the lies fabricated against the President by the devilish Clinton duo, Obama and his “deep state” flunkies. Yes, the Lord has shown us again that deeds hatched in darkness will surely be exposed in the light of day. I say, even from a flickering light of a little candle the devil cannot hide, for what he has done in the dark will be unveiled by the light of the burning wick.

Now, of course, in Mr. William Barr we hope that Mueller’s and his henchman’s Andrew Weissmann attempts to expand the definition of “obstruction of justice” have not left even mere crumbs for the DNC rats to devour. So for the sake of the health of our great republic justice most be expedient to punish those who plotted to overthrow our duly elected 45th President; a patriot who adroitly and transparently has handled the affairs of the nation. Ironically, the political ‘neophyte’ from Wharton not only knew the difference between fiscal and monetary policy but also knew how to trap the frogs. The enemies of the American Constitutional Republic gravely under-estimated our astute man’s capacity to govern with confidence, power and dignity. And so it shall come to pass, that all efforts to nullify the will of the American people, on the night of November 8, 2016, could not stand.

Poor ‘Muleface’ Mueller who can’t find a rabbit hole to hide from the acrimony leveled against him by Obama’s stooges in the disheveled ‘US House of Reprobates’… a shameful bunch of misfits who should be in a federal penitentiary dressed in orange suits watching the fake news on CNN. Is there a better place for these sorry jackasses? By the way, please don’t forget that Vladimir Putin is still holding a $145,000,000 IOU from Hillary Clinton and another for $500,000 from her partner in crime, Bubba.

Also keep in mind the 2017 investigation conducted by Politico that exposed the nefarious activities by high government officials in the Ukraine seeking to undermine Trump by questioning his fitness for office, and their work behind the scenes to secure Hillary Clinton’s victory. Certainly activities Barack Obama was actively supporting in his efforts to derail Trump’s candidacy.

These are disturbing revelations Mueller, an actor in the Obama/Clinton/DNC treasonous theater, had to be quite aware of…Only a fool would not agree.

Though the Mueller Report is out for the world to see that there was no “Trump-Russia’ collusion and no grounds to impeach our 45th President, yet we have some high profile ‘sour-cream’ politicos in the DNC (led by Jerrold ‘Humpy Dumpty’ Nadler; Elijah ‘waterfront thug’ Cummings; shifty Adam ‘pencil neck’ Schiff; the village idiot Eric ‘can’t swallow well’ Swalwell; and Maxine ‘horse face’ Waters and Nancy ‘wax museum’ Pelosi) trying to make palatable their poisonous bed & breakfast tea. What gives with these crooks? Is it that they all got a cut of the Clinton tandem’s IOUs ($145,000,000 + $500,000) held by comrade Vladimir Putin? I say, anything is possible from the snakes in that DNC pit.

Go get em’ Bill Barr! Your duty is to the American people, you have not an obligation to salvage the already tainted legal reputations of ‘Muleface’ Mueller and his sordid legal-team of ‘Un-American’ desperados. At times I see myself in a dream where a medieval king has given the order to “hang ‘em high.”

So, folks, don’t waste your money on Obama’s spiteful books…you gain nothing positive from them, they belong in the nearest dumpster. This narcissist planted by the Kremlin in the White House should be shipped back to Kenya, really. Perhaps in Nairobi he could apply his socio-politico economic theories from his yam and cassava store.

Isn’t that a flip? Trump, a non-politico billionaire was the tonic our nation needed to rediscover its grandeur… Obama’s talk is cheap; it will always lead to poverty of body and soul.

Moreover, the dirty deeds of the Obama administration should forever remind us of Abe Lincoln’s words:

“America will never be destroyed from outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” “My concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.”

And let us add wisdom by daily visiting the Book of Proverbs:

“Without wise leadership, a nation falls; with many counselors, there is safety.” Proverbs 11:14

“The Lord hates people with twisted hearts, but he delights in those who have integrity.” Proverbs 11:20

“Lazy people are soon poor; hard workers get rich.” Proverbs 10:4

From the Christian Bible:
“Even while we were with you, we gave you this rule: Whoever does not work should not eat.” St. Paul, the Apostle: 2 Thessalonians 3:

Please donate your dollars, nickels and dimes to re-elect our valiant 45th President to the Oval Office, a sacred place where only American patriots should be allowed.

Go Trump Go 2020 Campaign.

CJack…Weekend Commentaries…May 3, 2019…

Note to Cjack:   So glad to hear from you again!   You had mentioned something about surgery months and months ago, but hadn’t been specific about its details.  I trust your today’s message indicates you plan to be around for another decade, two or three!

Have you noticed how fascistic our American  Dem mouths have become this past six months.   Ditsy, flaky motor mouth Nancy Pelosi also seems to have noticed how vile, strident, and Soviet most Dem 2020 candidates for the White House have become in their wars against humanity.     Notice how fascist  they all are by mouth and, by Facebook and Google censorship by deed, against American conservatives and our once Godfearing Republic.

Were you able to watch the Jerrold Nadler and thugs smearing their venom upon our nation’s Attorney General, William Barr on television last Wednesday?  Four hours of fascism, Soviet style!!   No matter how senile Joseph Biden has already become, he seems to want to join the Dems RED team by mouthing their programs with consequences, but not TRUTH!

One can tell rather quickly that this fascistic Dem bunch now owning their Party, has no longer any time for our Nation’s JudeoChristian heritage based upon seeking and meeting Truth and Knowledge learned in life through the Holy Bible!

Notice how socialistically  today’s Dem fascists are selling their dictatorship!  There is no Knowledge or Truth any more in what they sell in schools, colleges, and nearly all of our newspapers.    They are feminizing the nation to control and/or eliminate the human male animal born to be curious, to invent, to solve problems, to expose the unknown, to protect and provide so every citizen  can become  equally ditsy, ignorant,  and easier to control!

Dems goal to go female:  “ONE MIND, ONE BODY, ONE NATION, ONE WORLD FOREVER!”

(My,  how I love our Donald and the nation’s brilliant Attorney General he selected,  the one the fascist Dems have united to bury  as soon as possible so their fascist government run world can begin in earnest!)

The Fascist Dems Spying on the 2016 Trump Campaign

New York Times Admits Obama Admin Deployed Multiple Spies Against Trump Campaign In 2016

..
The New York Times admitted on Thursday that the Obama administration deployed multiple spies against the Trump campaign in 2016, confirming recent comments by Attorney General William Barr that ‘spying did occur’ during the campaign.
..

Following months of angry claims by journalists and Democratic operatives that the Obama administration never spied on Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, The New York Times admitted Thursday that multiple overseas intelligence assets were deployed against associates of the Republican nominee. It is not the first time the Times has revealed widespread spying operations against the campaign.

In addition to noting that long-time informant Stefan Halper was tasked with collecting intelligence on the Trump campaign, the Times story details how a woman was sent overseas under a fake name and occupation to oversee the spy operation. The woman’s real name is not mentioned in the article, though the Times says she went by “Azra Turk” and has a relationship with an unidentified federal intelligence agency.

Halper was handpicked by a seasoned FBI counterintelligence agent out of the New York office, according to the article. While the Times does not identify the agent by name, the paper says the FBI agent spoke at a conference organized by Halper about a 2010 case involving Russians posing as Americans. The public schedule for a 2011 conference hosted by Halper about the exact same case shows that three FBI counterintelligence agents were invited to speak on the topic.

The three agents publicly identified as speaking at that conference on the topic are George J. Ennis, Jr., Alan E. Kohler, Jr., and Stephen M. Somma. Ennis currently serves as the special agent in charge in the FBI’s New York office, according to his LinkedIn profile, and worked closely with Preet Bharara, former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, a virulent anti-Trump activist whom the president fired in 2017.

The public schedule for a 2014 conference led by Halper shows that Kohler also spoke to the same group about the same Russian case on May 9, 2014.

“Alan Kohler the FBI representative at the United States Embassy in London will talk about the challenges of modern counter espionage: including the case of Anna Chapman and other Russian illegals,” the schedule noted.

A representative for the FBI’s office in Norfolk, where Kohler worked as of March 2017, said he is no longer with that office. The representative, who refused to provide her name, did not say when or why Kohler left that office or whether he was still employed by the FBI. The FBI’s New York office did not respond to queries about the current employment status of Kohler, Ennis, or Somma.

Real estate records show Kohler relocated to the Washington, D.C. area from Norfolk in July of 2017, shortly after special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed to investigate alleged connections between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. When asked whether Kohler had been transferred to the FBI’s Washington field office, an FBI representative for that office directed the questions to the FBI headquarters in D.C. The FBI refused to comment when asked whether Kohler had been detailed to work on Mueller’s investigation of Trump or whether he was the agent responsible for deploying Halper against the Trump campaign in 2016.

“Turk,” the U.S. intelligence operative who claimed to work as Halper’s assistant, had previously been identified to George Papadopoulos, whom she targeted, as a spy who rather blatantly tried to plumb him for information about Russia and other topics. After the Times published its article on “Turk,” Papadopolous wrote on Twitter that she “clearly was not FBI” and instead “was CIA and affiliated with Turkish intel.”

“She could hardly speak English and was tasked to meet me about my work in the energy sector offshore Israel/Cyprus which Turkey was competing with,” Papadopoulos wrote.

The NYT also admits in its article that the aggressive and unprecedented action of deploying spies and luring American targets overseas to collect intelligence on a rival political campaign “yielded no fruitful information.” It is not clear whether information collected by Halper and “Turk” was used to justify formal spy warrants against any U.S. citizens.

Why Leak This News Now?

The New York Times has repeatedly been used by FBI officials who ran the anti-Trump spy operation to launder damaging information that reflects poorly on the agency. Nearly a year ago, the Times confirmed that the U.S. intelligence apparatus was used to spy on Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016.

While that article included explosive revelations, it downplayed their significance and later curiously denied that any spying had ever occurred:

The F.B.I. investigated four unidentified Trump campaign aides in those early months, congressional investigators revealed in February. The four men were Michael T. Flynn, Paul Manafort, Carter Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said …

The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters — a secret type of subpoena — officials said. And at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said.

In that case, the ostensible purpose of the leak was to get ahead of what congressional investigators had figured out: the Obama administration targeted the Trump campaign with secret informants.

The leak that fueled the Thursday NYT bombshell was likely placed in anticipation of the formal release of even more damaging information about how U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies potentially abused their authority to punish the government’s political enemies. The article specifically references the forthcoming release of an extensive inspector general review of potential improprieties at the Department of Justice (DOJ).

By leaking the information to the friendliest of friendly reporters, including Michael Schmidt at the Times, the individuals who ran the anti-Trump operation are likely hoping to spin the news in their favor.

This Explains the Anti-Barr Freakout

So long as anti-Trump operatives controlled the FBI and DOJ, this type of leaking and concealing of information worked well. Most major media outlets have chosen to ignore the spying scandal in favor of non-stop anti-Trump advocacy. That left actual fact-finding and truth-seeking to a small group of media outlets and a handful of elected lawmakers tasked with oversight of the nation’s spy agencies.

When William Barr took over as attorney general, it was the first time in years the agency had any real political accountability. Trump’s first attorney general recused himself from overseeing anything related to the 2016 campaign, and his deputy who took over is alleged to have been involved in a conspiracy to oust the president.

While Barr was adamant that Mueller’s special counsel probe be unimpeded and his report fully published, he scared the anti-Trump forces in and out of government when he said spying on opposing political campaigns is inappropriate. His public vow to examine whether the widespread spying operation against Trump and his affiliates was lawful and appropriate sent shockwaves through an organized anti-Trump political operation that had completely controlled the narrative until recently.
