A Certain Crisis Scenario

What if an important ally of the US, such as South Korea, suddenly finds its currency to be worthless?

I for one happen to find the sudden crisis that engulfed the South Korean president to be rather suspicious. In light of China and Russia's fierce opposition to the deployment of the THAAD system and Russia's expert use of its espionage capabilities, it's not beyond their capabilities, will and SOP to discover the South Korean president's improprieties and expose them in the hope of preventing THAAD deployment.  If this crisis fails to prevent its deployment, they might engineer other forms of attack on South Korea, such as an economic crisis meant to bring the country to its knees by attacking its currency.

In such a crisis, the Trump Administration should move to support its ally by coming to an agreement with South Korea in which Seoul will agree not to print any currency or issue any government bonds. In exchange, the US should agree to allow conversions of the South Korean won to the US dollar at a rate that prevailed before the crisis erupts. The full force of the US Treasury should save South Korea from financial ruin, strengthen an important ally in the Far East, demonstrate US commitment to its allies and earn the undying gratitude of Seoul.

Obama Deserves All the Mockery from Russia

The Russian embassy in London mocked Obama for his pathetic sanctions. Rightly so. I can't recall this type of mockery even during the waning days of Bush the Younger's Administration. So much for the Obama regime's "smart power". Apparently, the Obama regime succeeded in their message of hope and change and a reset of relations with Russia. From now on, can anybody even use those phrases without mockery? The Democratic Party's rush to blame everybody else except themselves for their electoral defeat aside, only 29% of Americans believe that Russia exercised undue influence in the elections. I think there is a larger percentage of Americans who believe an alien vessel landed at Roswell and the Loch Ness monster.

Kerry's Speech was a Turkey

Turkey said so, even before the speech. Meanwhile, Israel will turn over evidence of collusion between the Obama regime and the Palestinians on the recent UN resolution to the incoming Trump Administration.

Syria: Obama's Debacle, Trump's Opportunity

It is hard to overstate the disaster of Obama's policy in Syria. First, there was his infamous red line that was repeatedly crossed by a two-bit dictator whose country is engulfed in civil war. Despite the Obama regime's repeated calls that Assad must go, now it is Obama who will go and Assad will remain. Obama's Syria disaster invited Russian intervention that has now led to Syria to recover Aleppo. Russia, Iran and Turkey have even begun to meet to plan for ending the war with the Obama regime excluded.

That said, however, there is still time for the incoming Trump Administration to recover the situation and

a) Force Russian, Iranian, and Hezbollah withdrawal from Syria,
b) foster peace between Syria and Israel,
c) protect Syrian Kurds, and
d) defeat extremist Islamic rebels.

The key to such a decisive reversal of fortunes for the US is to intervene, not on behalf of the rebels but to attack Syrian, Iranian, and Hezbollah forces, weakening them on two fronts:

1. Use air strikes, with cruise missiles in the first wave to take down Syrian/Russian air defenses safely and pave a way for rebels to reach the Russian base in Syria.
2. Bomb their forces in and around Damascus but carefully sparing Assad. This will enable rebel gains near Damascus, causing panic in the Assad regime and dislocate their strategy.

The key is to force Assad to reverse his alliances and ask the US for terms to save his regime. The terms should be:

i. Expulsion of all Russian, Iranian, and Hezbollah forces from Syria and renunciation of any support for terrorism.
ii. Complete renunciation of his WMD program.
iii. Sign a peace treaty with Israel establishing full diplomatic ties and ceding the Golan Heights in exchange for Israeli aid to defeat the rebels and rebuild his country.
iv. Allow the creation of a Kuridsh autonomous region.
v. Grant amnesty to any rebel willing to surrender their arms and permit them to stay in the Kurdish autonomous region provided that they do not violate these terms.
vi. US assistance to defeat the rebels and rebuild his country. Such assistance will be critical for Assad as Russia cannot promise the reconstruction of the devastated country.

If the US and Israel can defeat the rebels, it will be something Russia, Iran, and the Hezbollah could not deliver for Assad since the civil war began. It will cleanse the Mediterranean of Russian influence. At the same time, it will prevent the rise of extremist Islamic rebels who may have an anti-US agenda. It will also represent a humiliating defeat for Russia, Iran, and the Hezbollah, the last of whom may be so weakened that they may eventually be defeated in Lebanon as well. It can also further weaken Arab resistance to normalize relations with Israel. The Trump Administration should seize this golden opportunity to accomplish so many US foreign policy objectives at the same time.

President Trump Should Move to Support Israel

In light of the Obama regime's pathetic attempt at revenge against Israel, the incoming Trump Administration and Israel can take multiple steps to repudiate Obama. Let me also recommend that Israel should move toward annexing settlements with a population over 10,000 and the Trump Administration can then recognize the annexations. In addition, Congress can vote to provide funding for the expansion of some of the largest existing settlements. Israel and the Trump Administration should make sure the Palestinians will regret Obama's ego trip.

Obama Regime Tries to Cover-Up Its Failures

An independent federal agency has just determined that the Department of Veterans Affairs retaliated against whistleblower Bradie Frink because he tried to get the VA to find his lost claims folder.
Meanwhile in Britain, land of the National Health Disservice, "[a] hospital nursing assistant stuffed a wet wipe into a 96-year-old woman's mouth to stop her screaming."

Russia's RS-26 Missile

Russia is testing a new ICBM. Survey suggests that thanks to the Russian government whipping up mass hysteria, 59% of Russians see the US as a threat with 31% believing that the US plans to launch an invasion against their country. Obviously, the Obama regime delivered on its promises of hope and change and a reset of relations with Russia.

Israel's Arms Sales

Canada purchased Israel's Iron Dome missile defense technology and India will purchase 10 Israeli Heron drones for $400 million.

The Clinton Industry

The Clinton Foundation received $25,000 in a donation from a wealthy pedophile. While Hillary Clinton was in charge of the State Dept., they regularly approved speeches by her husband, raising conflict of interest issues.

Obama's Useless Health Insurance Scheme

Almost 1/4 of the people who signed up to Obama's health insurance scheme this year dropped or lost their coverage. The waiting lists for the Irish health care system have reached disastrous levels and once again the government is paying the private health care sector to save the public sector.

Meanwhile in Britain, the death panels rendered their verdicts yet again. More than 5,000 cancer patients will be denied treatment. 2 British doctors killed a 30-year-old patient at the Tunbridge Wells Hospital.

Modern Liberals Successfully Lose Every War

Obama gave up all the progress President Bush made in Iraq to the Daesh. The only thing left for Obama to do is to ignore reality. Meanwhile, a Dutch air force sergeant joined the Daesh.

Time to Bring Back Internment Camps

Like the last time, this was proposed by a Democrat.

Europe's Quagmire

The eurozone's economic growth was 0.3% in Q2 and its unemployment rate was 11.1%. The more economically backward countries are hobbled by their bureaucratic red tape and are dragging down the entire community. In 9 EU countries, welfare benefits exceeded minimum wage pay. The French Economy Minister confessed that their 35-hour work week is hampering economic development. Thanks to Sweden's rent control policy, construction of new homes has virtually ended.

First was the Crime, Then the Cover-Up

The inspector general of the IRS reported that the agency erased e-mails from the IRS official responsible for targeting conservatives after Congress subpoenaed them. New report concludes that the IRS seized thousands of bank accounts without filing charges first.

Civil Disobedience Continues

Oregon state judge refused to perform same-sex marriage on the ground that his religion forbids it. Needless to say, the Obama regime is launching an inquisition against him. Meanwhile in Australia, the education minister from the state of New South Wales barred schools from indoctrinating children in the liberal cult of homosexuality.

Obama's Encouragement of Terrorism is Working

Terrorist attacks increased by 35% between 2013-4.

The Russian Threat to Denmark

Obama's Use of the IRS to Target Political Opponents

E-mails from the IRS official Lois Lerner who targeted conservatives and were supposedly lost have been recovered. They reveal Lerner plotting to cover up her politically-motivated witch hunt. Meanwhile, private information on more than 100,000 taxpayers were stolen from the IRS. Under the Obama regime, the IRS is pathetic in safeguarding taxpayer information but very good at serving as the Obama regime's hit men.

Major Natural Gas Discovery

A natural gas field off the coast of Egypt covers 40 sq. mi. and may hold up to 30 trillion cu. ft. of natural gas, equivalent to 5.5 billion barrels of oil.
[S]hale gas has gone from 4 percent of the total natural gas produced in the United States in 2005 to a projected 40 percent this year, according to the U.S. Energy Information Agency (EIA). Or take oil—in the last decade U.S crude oil production has increased from five million barrels a day to its current pace of more than nine million barrels a day.

Wasteful Spending on the State Level

Wasteful Expenditures from Obama's Health Insurance Scheme

Nearly half a million ObamaCare enrollees were able to claim more than $235 million in excess subsidies that they will never have to pay back, a recent IRS audit showed, thanks to a quirk in the law that leaves the program vulnerable to potentially billions in excess subsidy payments.
In Britain, land of the death panels, a 31-year-old man who suffered from a serious cough was told by his doctor that it was harmless. Now an X-ray revealed that he has inoperable cancer. Under government health care, a man is not seriously ill unless he is dying.

Suicide on Demand

European countries are expanding euthanasia from the initial excuse for the terminally ill to mental patients. At least the Soviet Union only locked them up in mental asylums, Europeans want to kill them.

More on Obama's Support for Terrorism

Obama's plan to lift sanctions on Iran will only provide the regime more money to fund terrorism. No wonder that the former British defense secretary characterized the deal as a capitulation to Iran and 2/3 of the government's national security experts consider it to be a disaster.

The Russian Threat to the Nordic Countries

Russian troops practiced invasion of Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark.

Crime and... Rewards

The IRS under the Obama regime actually rewarded those of its employees who cheated on taxes. It is not surprising to see this level of corruption from an agency that served as Obama's hit men in targeting conservatives for audits.

Mass Murder Rate Remains Steady

Congressional Research Service data show that the rate of mass murder in the US remained relatively stable for more than a decade. Meanwhile, "[o]ver the last year and a half, the city of Detroit has registered more than 1,500 new handgun permits and 13,000 guns."

"Committing Suicide for Fear of Death"

That was the late German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck's famous quip about Germans who advocated a preemptive war against Russia. Now we have a healthy British woman who committed suicide for fear of growing old. Now depression qualifies for suicide in Belgium, even though the case involves a woman with no terminal illness.

Another Snapshot of Obama's Thuggish Regime

Not surprisingly, the Obama regime's Dept. of Justice is obstructing an investigation into the IRS's targeting of Obama's political opponents. In related news:

Federal Judge Upholds Freedom of Conscience

I am pleased to note that a federal judge barred the Obama regime from enforcing the birth control mandate of its health insurance scheme on a secular, pro-life group. Meanwhile in Britain, land of the National Health Disservice, more than 1/3rd of general practitioners want to retire, another 1/10th plan to emigrate, and another 1/6th plan to reduce their work load by becoming part-time.

Daesh Advances

The Daesh now control half of Syria. They have also been using chemical weapons against the Kurds. In a bizarre turn of events, 3 Chechen women conned the Daesh out of several thousand dollars.

More on Obama's Attempt to Help Islamic Extremists

Obama is preventing Arab states from arming the Kurds to fight the Daesh. The Obama regime also consistently downplayed the threat they pose.

Poland Improving Its Military Readiness

Poland will build watchtowers to keep an eye on the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad. Paramilitary groups are forming in Poland to resist a possible Russian invasion. There is general anxiety among Poles that NATO is not doing enough to defend its eastern members from the Russian threat. Nobody can understand the fear that comes with having one's country occupied, in part or in whole, by Russia for more than 2 centuries.
