Victory in Afghanistan August 11, 2017

Posted by Dr. Robert Owens in Uncategorized.
1 comment so far

After sixteen years of war, thousands of American deaths, tens of thousands wounded, and hundreds of billions of dollars poured down an insatiable whirlpool of corruption it is time to achieve victory in Afghanistan.

What would victory for the American people look like in Afghanistan?

A complete withdrawal of all American combat troops as quickly and as safely as possible.

After 9-11 the entire world supported our invasion of Afghanistan to punish Al-Qaeda and the Taliban that sheltered them.  We accomplished that goal in a few weeks.  Sixteen years of nation building later after squandering the support of the world, wasting American lives, treasure, and trust everyone in the world knows the moment we pull out the Taliban move in and our Afghan puppets will be on 747s filled with American tax-payer cash on their way to Switzerland.

Now the generals want more troops and more equipment.  Here’s a news flash; generals always want more troops and more equipment.  That is what they do.  President Trump has surrounded himself with generals.  They may be good administrators.  They may even be good warriors.  However, they miss the political and diplomatic reality that we cannot win in Afghanistan.  No one ever has.  That is why it is called the Graveyard of Empires.

Yes we could move in enough troops and equipment to pacify the nation, although there would always be partisan fighters in the remote mountains, there always are.  But unless we’re committed to turning the country into a permanent colony with a massive and expensive garrison force as soon as we leave it will revert back to what it has always been, an ungovernable area bounded by nation states that the civilized world has decided to call Afghanistan.

What we should have done was take down the Taliban, drive out Al-Qaeda then leave with a note on the fridge saying, “If it happens again…we’ll be back again.”

If we had done that (and avoided the pre-emptive debacle that was Iraq imagine the lives saved, the funds available for making life better at home, and the goodwill we would still have in the world.

When your cut the first thing to do is stop the bleeding.  If you are mired in a hole the first thing to do is stop digging.

We are mired and bleeding in Afghanistan.  We can all see how this is going to end.  Eventually we will withdraw and then it will be seen as the mirage of competent leadership it has always been.

Obama called it the good war.

Look at the results so far.  Look at the obvious end point.  Look at the lost and shattered lives.  Look at the bankruptcy of our nation.  How is any of that good?

In 1966, in the middle of the Vietnam War, the late Senator George Aiken of Vermont famously recommended that the United States simply declare victory and get out.

I am saying declare a victory for America.  Discard the nation bankrupt building policies of the past and bring our troops home.  If we need a mission, how about securing our own borders or standing ready when America’s vital interests are actually at stake?

All of this is beginning to feel like Déjà vu all over again.

We are all familiar with the quote from George Santayana:

“Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”

Which always reminds me of the impact America’s general Historical illiteracy as summed up in the qualifier to that famous quote:

“History repeats itself because no one was listening the first time.”

This in turn, brings me to the realization that after more than fifty years of daily Historical study, decades of teaching History, and a lifetime devoted to trying to share the insights of History through literature the truth of the matter is aptly summed up by a quote from Aldus Huxley:

“That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history.”

President Trump, prove that to be wrong.  Ignore the generals, ignore the neocons, ignore the clamoring agents of the military-industrial complex end the war in Afghanistan and bring our troops home.

Political Warfare and the Impeachment of President Trump August 4, 2017

Posted by Dr. Robert Owens in Uncategorized.

Unless I have entered a parallel universe I seem to remember voting for President Trump because he was going to stand strong against the Neo-cons and their thirst for perpetual war.

I don’t know about anyone else but I thought this was an America First foreign policy which did not send us off tilting at windmills around the globe.  Specifically I thought this meant we would let the Syrians fight their own civil war, let the Russian inhabitants of Eastern Ukraine live according to our time honored principle of self-determination.  They no longer want to be a part of the communist reconstruction of the Ukraine so let them be free.

However, the Deep State has other ideas.  These career bureaucrats who think they are the permanent government no matter who we elect have aligned with the Neo-cons.  They are driving us over a cliff by imposing sanctions even our allies are against and likely will not adhere to.  They are setting up a situation wherein they hope to strip President Trump’s powers and set up a situation where they can impeach him for firing one of his one employees.

This was the same tactic used to impeach President Andrew Johnson.  Then because of one vote it failed.  Today with McCain and the other maverick turncoats voting with the doppelganger Democrat friends it might succeed.

The Neo-Cons have taken over the National Security Council (NSC) under National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster.  Proof of this is seen in the recent firing on July 21 of Rich Higgins, a former Pentagon official who served in the NSC’s strategic-planning office as a director for strategic planning.

What was Higgins sin?  He wrote a memo that described threats to the administration by globalists, bankers, the deep state, and Islamists.  What proscribed advice or intelligence did this memo contain?

Excerpts from the Higgins memo:

Through the campaign, candidate Trump tapped into a deep vein of concern among many citizens that America is at risk and slipping away. Globalists and Islamists recognize that for their visions to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a national and political identity, must be destroyed. … Islamists ally with cultural Marxists because, as far back as the 1980s, they properly assessed that the left has a strong chance of reducing Western civilization to its benefit. Having co-opted post-modern narratives as critical points, Islamists will co-opt the movement in its entirety at some future point. (NOTE! Communist takeover of Russian revolution against the Czars, N Vietnamese against the South, Maoists against the democratic forces against the Chinese dynasty.)

POLITICAL WARFARE ATTACKS—a primer

As used here, “political warfare’ does not concern activities associated with the American political process but rather exclusively refers to political warfare as understood by the Maoist insurgency model. Political warfare is one of the five components of a Maoist insurgency. Maoist methodologies are described as synchronized violent and non-violent actions. This approach envisions the direct use of non-violent operations arts and tactics as elements of combat power In Maoist insurgencies, the formation of a counter-state is essential to seizing state power. Functioning as a hostile compete state acting within an existing state, it has an alternate infrastructure. Political warfare operates as one of the activities of the “counter-state.” Political warfare uses non-violent methods such as participation that undermines the morale or offers to engage in discussions, as a adjunct to violence. Political warfare methods can be implemented at strategic, operations, or tactical levels of operation.

Political warfare is warfare. Strategic information campaigns designed to delegitimize through disinformation arise out of non-violent lines of effort in political warfare regimes. They run on multiple lines of operation, support the larger non-violent line of effort, are coordinated with violent lines of effort, and execute political warfare agenda promoting cultural Marxist outcomes. They principally operate through narratives. Because the left is aligned with Islamist organizations at local, national and international levels, recognition should be given to the fact that they seamlessly interoperate through coordinated synchronized interactive narratives … These attacks narratives are pervasive, full spectrum and institutionalized at all levels. They operate in social media, television, the 24-hour news cycle in all media and are entrenched at the upper levels of the bureaucracies …

Political Warfare has been described as “propaganda in battledress.”

This memo was discarded and Higgins fired because to sound the alarm is to make yourself a target for the enemies of America First.

Unless and until this political warfare is recognized for what it is their stealth victory through bureaucratic slight-of-hand, media barrage, and prosecutorial witch-hunt we will see the impeachment of President Trump and the end of the America First campaign.

And who voted for that?

Then Came Trump

In Then Came Trump Dr. Robert Owens shares insights about where we have come from, where we are now, and where the Donald promised to lead us.  Featuring Dispatches from the History of the Future these essays are guaranteed to provide food for thought as current events you remember are placed in an historical and constitutional context.  A text without a context is a pretext.  In today’s world of fake news the progressive spin of the wall-to-wall megaphone of the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR cartel pumps out its left-leaning version of the day’s events.  This combined with the stories they make-up out of whole cloth need to be balanced.  This book is an attempt to provide that balance. We have labored in the darkness of the Obamanation.  We have waited for a light at the end of the tunnel that was not another progressive steamroller chugging down the tracks.  We have looked for anyone who could cut the Gordian Knot and loose the potential of America again.  Then came Trump.

Available on Amazon today.

A Workaholic as President January 27, 2017

Posted by Dr. Robert Owens in Uncategorized.

We have seen more positive pro-American results flow from the work station of Donald Trump, once known as the Oval Office; then we did in eight years of nothing but drama Obama.  Starting at 6 AM in the morning and working all day our new president is on the job.

I think the shell-shocked Progressives are dazed and confused, “Why he’s following through on his promises, now whoever saw a politician do that before?”  Every time The Donald tweets out another zinger or wills another wall into production, every time they see their plans for knocking us down a peg or two dashed in Make America Great Again the America Last crowd cringes.

Carroll O’Connor the left wing actor made a fortune lampooning hard working members of America’s majority with what he and his Hollywood friends saw as the 1970’s version of Bitter Clingers or Deplorables.  The Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media are still dedicated to shoving their vision of a multicultural smelting pot down our throats every night on TV and every week in movies but there is another vision rising out of rural America that has taken center stage.

We aren’t racist, or sexist, or any of the other words the statist invent to demean us because hard working people who believe in family, faith, and American exceptionalism come in all colors, sexes, ethnicities, and religions.  It isn’t based on class because people from all walks of life and every level of income reject the “From each according to their ability to each according to their need” siren song of the centralizing would be commissars.

We hold pro-life marches to mark the anniversary of the legalization of infanticide.  We have held taxed enough already TEA Party gatherings.  We have participated in the massive rallies during the run-up to the triumph of Trump.  These have been marked by peaceful gatherings that usually leave places cleaner than when we got there.  Another aspect of all these mass meetings and marches is that the corrupt media either ignores us entirely, lies about our numbers, or distorts what we are doing.

We are too busy working to occupy anywhere.  We are too busy building, creating, and making things go to become professional agitators.  We don’t have  the wall-to-wall free advertising and cheer leading that is given to the astro-turf grass roots on the left.  One thing we did do was come out of the shadows long enough to foil the coronation of the Queen of New York’s Sixth Crime Family.  One thing we did do was cast enough votes to tell the world that we want to Make America Great Again.  And now with a workaholic as President let’s getter done!
