Original Article

Zimbabwe's preening socialist strongman, Robert Mugabe, a man who left his once-prosperous country a hellhole, is gone, and his end didn't come soon enough. He went out as as one of the world's worst curses against humanity. Here's the New York Times announcement: Robert Mugabe, the first prime minister and later president of independent Zimbabwe, who traded the mantle of liberator for the armor of a tyrant and presided over the decline of one of Africa’s most prosperous lands, died on Friday. He was 95. The death was announced by his successor, President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Comments:

But the disease he embodied lives on, like ebola.

“...who traded the mantle of liberator for the armor of a tyrant and presided over the decline of one of Africa’s most prosperous lands,...” Yet the Slimes sees nothing wrong with Chavez doing the same thing in Venezuela, Castro doing the same thing in Cuba, the Kim family doing the same thing in North Korea and a long list of demonrat mayors doing the same thing in Detroit, Chicago, San Francisco, St. Louis......

Those used to dealing with Iranian affairs, especially when it comes to intelligence and security, know that truth in the mullahs’ regime is often wrapped in the sails of mystery. As Winston Churchill said once (evoking Russia): “a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma…” I know this first-hand since I have dealt with Iranian drama for more than three decades, both inside and outside government, as a French intelligence agent first and then as a terrorism expert. But what is more confounding is the attitude of the Western powers in dealing with Iranian state terror, and the fact that they keep repeating, again and again,

There’s been a spate of articles in recent days about how Democrats need to win back working-class voters who defected to President Donald Trump in 2016 if they want to regain the White House. Right in the middle of this discussion, Sen. Bernie Sanders provided yet another reminder of how incredibly, unbelievably out of touch the Democratic Party is with those voters. An AP story this week talked about how Democrats face an “identity crisis” as they try to answer the question, “How can they peel back Trump’s support with white working-class voters while boosting turnout with minorities and suburban women?”

When you can sort out what Beto O'Rourke is saying through his foul language, what he's saying in the wake of the Odessa-Midland mass shooting is pretty awful: Expropriate law-abiding citizens' guns, by force. According to Fox News: Beto O’Rourke repeated his pledge to initiate a mandatory buyback of assault weapons if he is elected president. O’Rourke was asked Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia, how he would address the fears of some Americans that the government would take away their assault weapons.
‘Price Gouging,’ Hurricane
Dorian Victims’ Best Friend

When natural disasters threaten, governments are quick to roll out anti-price gouging laws. Josh Stein, the Democratic attorney general in North Carolina, which might take a hit from Hurricane Dorian, has already warned business that if they take “advantage of this storm” he will “hold them accountable.” He’ll be praised for protecting consumers when he should instead be held responsible for hurting them. Even the Republicans, who should know better, are all in on anti-price gouging laws. Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody has issued a warning similar to Stein’s, while Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp has “enacted price gouging controls” in a dozen counties near the coast.

It was a quiet night in Platts Harbor, near Santa Cruz Island. Shirley Hansen and her husband, Bob, had spent the day on the water and anchored their fishing boat Grape Escape in the cove. They cooked a calico bass Shirley had caught and went to bed. Then, they were woken by a loud thumping noise on the side of their 60-foot vessel. “It was horrific, the pounding,” Shirley Hansen said. “Our boat is very well made. Having that sound come through [showed] they were very in need of help.”

How does one know what the voting public thinks? Once upon a time, long, long ago, public opinion polls may have reflected, however faintly, some generalization of public opinion. For a multitude of reasons, that is no longer true. To demonstrate that point, compare the August 29 Rasmussen poll showing President Trump’s approval rating of 47 percent with the Quinnipiac reported approval rating of 38 percent. Even more irrational are the Quinnipiac poll result that whatever is left of Joe Biden would beat Trump 54 percent to 38 percent in a general election and the Economist poll number that asserts that 55 percent of the public

U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has shown some phenomenal political nerve in first shutting down parliament, and then insisting on party discipline on penalty of expulsion from the wets and wobblies in his Tory Party who'd rather drag the Brexit farce out to keep Britain caged within the EU just a little longer. He's got his eyes on the prize, knowing that it's his job to ensure that Britain can leave the European Union as British voters demanded. Like President Trump, he means to keep his promises.

HONG KONG - Every night at 10 p.m., Hong Kong neighborhoods and university dorms echo with pro-democracy and anti-government chants, the latest form of protest in the Chinese-ruled city where a civil disobedience movement has been going on for more than 12 weeks. What started as a protest against a now-suspended bill that would have allowed criminal suspects to be extradited to mainland China for trial, has evolved into a broad, increasingly violent, and creative, struggle for greater democracy.

While Hurricane Dorian’s up-to 220 mph winds were battering the Bahamas, one brave soul there ventured forth to issue a dire message to the world: “Send beer.” A Nassau tourism web cam captured the moment the unidentified beach-comber ambled out onto the sand to scrawl the message at around 1:30 p.m. — around the same time the monster Category 5 was harrowing Great Abaco Island about 90 miles north after making landfall there around 12:40 p.m. The man appears to sign his handiwork “G7DAZ.” It might not be entirely out of character for Bahamians, who are known to be pretty mellow.

Chilling audio of a distress call from the captain of Monday’s doomed Santa Cruz boat includes him describing how all of his passengers are trapped below deck “with no escape hatch.” “There’s 33 people on board the vessel on fire. They can’t get off,” says the man, who later identifies himself as the captain of the Conception diving tour boat, to a US Coast Guard operator. The Coast Guard worker responds, “Roger. Are they locked inside the boat? Roger. Can you get back on board and unlock the doors so they can get off? Roger. You don’t have any firefighter gear at all, no fire extinguishers or anything?”

Donald Trump wants people to think he’s a winner. So why does he act like a loser? Winners convey a sense of effortless superiority. They don’t have to work at it. You just know they’re above it all. If someone tries to criticize them, it’s beneath their dignity to worry about it. It’s just a little speck they brush off their shoulder. The Brits are good at that, Boris Johnson especially. We still don’t know how things will turn out there, but I expect his aplomb will carry him through. “There are no disasters,” he once joked. “Only opportunities. And, indeed, opportunities for fresh disasters.”

The Gathering Threat to the Electoral College—and to the U.S. Senate. The left has a hot new cause: getting rid of the Electoral College. And if the left succeeds in doing away with that venerable institution, its next target, the U.S. Senate, will fall like a dried apple. As is so often the case with leftist causes these days; the spearhead is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York; being social-media-savvy and telegenic, she’s the star of the progressive A-Team. Way back on October 6, 2018, AOC was tweeting: It is well past time we eliminate the Electoral College, a shadow of slavery’s power

The Duchess of Sussex is said to have told her new PR company that she wants to 'break the internet'. Meghan Markle reportedly made the statement during a meeting with the company, Sunshine Sachs. This comes amid claims from royal sources that the former actress and mother-of-one is 'more concerned about the U.S media than the British.' Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have embarked on a number of projects, seemingly away from the traditional Royal route, including Meghan's guest editorial at the UK version of Vogue magazine. Now senior sources have reportedly said she is looking to create a team which isn't 'bogged down' by tradition.

Moreover, the president tweeted a video showing a CNN meteorologist explaining how during the initial reports of Dorian's path that some states in the Gulf of Mexico could possibly be affected. First, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued a statement that said Dorian's original predicted path did include Alabama.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has came under fire from conservatives on social media Thursday after he said he would be open to discussing population control as a means to combat climate change. The presidential candidate made the comments on Wednesday at a climate town hall on CNN after he was asked by an attendee about rising populations and how the planet "can not sustain this growth." The questioner, identified by CNN as a teacher named Martha Readyoff, said that she realized linking population control to climate was a topic "poisonous for politicians, but it's crucial to face."

A behavioral scientist from Sweden named Magnus Soderlund argued in a recent presentation that the way to combat climate change, save the planet and secure the earth for scores of upcoming generations is to — get this — eat people. As far as far-left ideas go, this one about cannibalism and climate change just takes the cake. Talk about the eww factor. This guy’s whacked. That’s all there is to it. Soderland, a behavioral scientist and marketing strategist, brought forth the idea in a talk bluntly titled, “Can you Imagine Eating Human Flesh?” Umm, no. Not without gagging, that is.

Former Defense Secretary James Mattis has a book coming out in which he is harshly critical of President Obama. Among other things, he recalls his dissent from Obama’s decision to pull troops out of Iraq prematurely, which had nearly-disastrous consequences. But this less well-known story about Iran is also noteworthy: Mattis says Washington didn’t even inform him when Iran committed an “act of war” on American soil. Mattis was CENTCOM commander at the time, responsible for our military posture vis-a-vis Iran. The duty officer at his Tampa, Florida, headquarters on Oct. 11, 2011 told him that the attorney general and FBI director had held

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown threatened violence against his team's general manager, and the team is doing nothing about it. On Wednesday, Brown had a heated exchange with Raiders GM Mike Mayock where he unleashed a barrage of foul language and went as far as threatening to punch Mayock in the face. The exchange came because Mayock was unhappy that Brown had posted a part of a letter the GM sent him on social media. The letter had to do with the $54,000 the team fined him for a pair of unexcused absences from practice during training camp.

Texas Republicans are sounding the alarm as Democratic presidential candidates get ready for their debate next week in Houston, warning that the Lone Star State could become more purple if the party doesn’t treat it as a 2020 battleground. Most in the GOP are confident President Trump will win Texas and its 38 electoral votes next year, and they think Texas GOP Sen. John Cornyn will turn aside his Democratic challenger. But they are worried they will lose more House seats a cycle after Democrats clawed back two districts as they retook their majority.
