Trump's Tactic: Accentuate the Negative

Trump says he has "low expectations" re his meeting tomorrow with Putin and, whadya know?, I feel a song coming on:

Next time you wait 
To "make America great"
Take a look at your fate
'Fore it's too late.

Just what makes that puffy old dude
Want to schmooze a despot who's shrewd?
Everyone knows with shrewd dude
Puffy will get screwed.

And he's got low hopes.
He's got low hopes.
He's got low/a tale of woe/soften the blow hopes.
So anytime you're thinkin'
To link in Helsinki
Just remember that dude.
Whoops, there goes another Yank gettin' screwed...

Didn't Know He Spoke Russian

This one made me chuckle:

Political Correctness in Montreal Leads to...Bedbugs?!?

Yup. Wouldn't want to exclude the great unwashed (and bug-ridden) from a great public institution, right?

Intolerance In Our Time

In our day, it's primarily a leftist phenomenon, as self-declared liberal Dave Rubin explains here:

Old fashioned progressive tolerance: "I disagree with your thinking but you have every right to express it."

Newfangled "progressive" tolerance: "You conservatives are too evil to even speak."

Don and Vlad's Execrable Adventure--In Song!

Justin Trudeau says NATO has plans to tell Donald Trump that Russia poses a threat.

Why bother, though, when Don and Vlad have a bromance made in Hades--or is it on Broadway?

Arguing for the latter, here are the two alpha males singing a golden oldie by Mr. Porter (and, how perfect!, it first appeared in his show Anything Goes):
Don: If you ever have a scare, I'll be there.

Vlad: If you ever need to flee, call for me.

Don: If you're ever so angry, and Ukraine invade; accolade!

Both: It's bromance, bromance. It's what makes us crow-mance.

Don: When others' bromance have run aground, ours'll still astound.

Vlad: La de la de la de dum dum dum...

What's the Deal With Trump's Bizarre Man-Crush on Putin?

Is it that Trump has a terrible case of despot-envy? That he admires Vlad the Bad's machismo? 

Something else?

All of the above?

Update: Quel insult--Kim Jong Un gets an invite to Moscow but Trump has to make do with a hook up in Helsinki?!

Someone Came Up With a Way to Describe Europe's Civilization Ennui/Disinclination to Fight Back Against Creeping and Remorseless Islamism

It's called "The Batman Syndrome."

Update: Here's a podcast on "Europe's Coming Dark Age."

What Price Justin Trudeau's Gory Glory?

Canada is sending a bunch of soldiers--"peacekeepers"--to Mali, a godforsaken backwater where jihad is being waged, and where there is no discernable peace to keep.

There's an excellent reason, though, why the Liberal government would want to put Canadians in harm's way. In a nutshell, it's because the Trudeau crew is hoping to endear itself to the UN in a bid to gain a seat on the Security Council.

That's right. This government see nothing wrong--and everything right--about sacrificing Canadian lives as payment--blood money, really--for a phony baloney seat at a phony baloney table.

Why ordinary Canadians aren't up in arms, so to speak, about this reprehensible trade-off is anyone's guess.

Sharia-Style Blasphemy Laws About to Become a Reality Down Under?

As per this, it seems to be a definite pssibility.

A cautionary tale for the rest of us re how Western notions of free speech can be tossed aside in the name of "diversity" and sparing peoples' precious feelings.

Orwellian Euphemism Du Jour: The Trudeau Gov't Calling Returing ISIS Fighters "High Risk Travellers"

Just don't call 'em jihadis, kay? Because that would be soooo "Islamophobic":
In the sanitizing Orwellian newspeak employed by the Canadian government, the terrorists are not jihadis who left Canada to commit the most heinous crimes, such as torture, rape and murder, while fighting for ISIS in Syria and Iraq, but "High Risk Travelers" and "High Risk Returnees".

The government is fully aware of the security risk to which it is subjecting Canadians: According to the documents, "HRRs [High Risk Returnees] can pose a significant threat to the national security of Canada". This fact raises the question of why the government of Canada is keen to facilitate these people's "right of return" -- when presumably the primary obligation of the government is to safeguard the security of law-abiding Canadian citizens.
To add insult to injury, the Trudeau minions insist that ISIS fighters with Canadian citizenship are entitled to--wait for it--"a right of return."

You know, like diaspora Jews do vis-à-vis Israel. (And like Palestinians claim to have vis-à-vis "Palestine," i.e. Israel).

Something very wrong with putting it like that, no?
