Bolton Fires At ICC

Cue the outrage, hysteria, and screaming tantrums from Americans’ enemies, both foreign and domestic.  President Trump’s National Security Adviser, John Bolton just severely rebuked the International Criminal Court (ICC) and threatened that America will retaliate against them if this foreign body follows through with its attempt to prosecute American military and intelligence personnel for supposed war crimes committed during the conflict in Afghanistan.

Yeah, our enemies are going to blow their tops over this because the only thing that they hate more than our warfighters and intelligence operatives is the idea of America as a sovereign nation unbounded by foreign control, restrictions, and authority.

Of course, what the liberals and progressives who will be screaming are either ignorant of- or in wilful denial thereof is that the US is not signatory to the ICC and is not one of its state-parties and is therefor outside of its jurisdiction since the amendments to the ICC’s powers during 2010 Review Conference of the Rome Statute made the ICC unable to prosecute individuals of a non-state party, e.g., the US.  Additionally, US federal law, specifically the 2002 American Service-Members’ Protection Act (ASPA), prohibits any agency or entity of the United States Government or of any State or local government, including any court, from cooperating with this body in just about any fashion whatsoever.

But then, this isn’t about facts or laws. This is all about our domestic enemies’ pathology.

Dems On McCain's Death

Dems On McCain's Death
Dems On McCain’s Death

Sen. John McCain died… as expected, given his medical condition.  And, almost equally expected, the Dems  and many of the Leftists who employ them came out to laud him in requiem.

At first this might seem odd. After all, they had consistently a viciously attacked him in 2008 and never really quit doing so since he was so obviously among the “rightfully hated,” i.e., an “Old White Man.” It is not, however, that odd. McCain redeemed himself in the eyes of the Dems and the Left with his open and shameless hatred of President Trump.

Mueller’s Witches

Mueller's Witches - Cohen and Manafort
Mueller’s Witches – Cohen & Manafort

Yes, Mueller’s ever ongoing witch hunt against President Trump, his family, and any and all associated with Americans’ president has managed to find a couple of “witches,” Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort. Of course, like so many other witch hunts throughout history, Cohen and Manafort are only witches because the crowd, in this case the Lamestream Media, claims that they are such.

There is still no evidence, or even any real suggestion, that there was any “collusion” between Trump and “The Russians” to affect the outcome of the 2016 elections. None! Nor will there ever be any real evidence of that because this witch hunt is born of hatred for the President, delusions of his vanquished opponent, and certain sort’s strongly held belief that Trump was not supposed to win.
