Russia Demands Money for Oil? Send in the Marines!

Written by Donald Hank on Thursday, 10 April 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Our contrived "two minutes of hate" against Russia is, not surprisingly, entirely devoid of reason and logic.

Russia Demands Money for Oil? Send in the Marines!

A local paper in Panama reports that Russia is threatening to make Ukraine pay up front for oil and gas. The Western response to this makes it seem equivalent to a Russian military attack. The article does not mention that Ukraine is years behind in its energy payments and that Russia had been extremely lenient with the country because of the good relations the two countries enjoyed. But those relations are gone and Russia wants to be paid on time. Now, if the US were giving credit to a country that threatened to default on payments, the government would be entitled to stop the shipments immediately and no American would complain of 'injustice.' But Russia is the whipping boy and is always evil no matter what it does, so now, according to this same article, using this and other flimsy pretexts, NATO is weighing sending US troops to Eastern Europe. http://time.com/56055/nato-could-send-u-s-troops-to-eastern-europe/ 

No More Votes For Evil

Written by Donald Hank on Wednesday, 09 April 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

The GOP desperately wants to field another milquetoast "moderate" RINO for the next presidential election. It's time for the grassroots to send the message that this won't be acceptable.

No More Votes For Evil

I am hearing from more and more alienated and ex Republicans who are vowing never again to vote for a Bush and many will never vote for another neocon. I will say that I made that vow inwardly a long time ago. A neocon would have quite likely embroiled us in a war already. Even the arch commie Obama hasn't done that.

How They Deceive Us With The Truth

Written by Donald Hank on Monday, 31 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Selective reporting has been used, and continues to be used, as a propaganda tool to justify foreign policy decisions that put lives at risk.

How They Deceive Us With The Truth

The following is a true account.

In 1964, an athlete in his prime savagely attacked an older, handicapped man with his fists in full view of countless witnesses, causing the victim lacerations under the left eye and severe bruising under the right eye.

The assailant was never arrested but amazingly, the victim was arrested weeks later!

John Bolton for President?

Written by Donald Hank on Monday, 10 March 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

John Bolton has some conservatives fired up. But don't be fooled - he's just another in a long line of neocon hawks.

John Bolton for President?

Some Americans are stirred up over John Bolton's speech at CPAC, which is linked to in enthusiastic viral emails. I’m sure you’ve seen it by now. The fact is, though, that Bolton is just another GOP shill who knows how to throw conservatives a bone or two but sidesteps the meaty issues.

The Russkies Are Coming! The Russkies Are Coming!

Written by Donald Hank on Friday, 28 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Decades of Cold War have made many Americans reflexively fearful of Russia. They still think Russia intends to destroy America even today. But where's the evidence of this?

The Russkies Are Coming! The Russkies Are Coming!

I have written about Russia and its love of tradition here, its resistance to social Marxism here, and have shown here that in terms of economic policies and social policies, the US is much more socialist than today’s Russia.

The EU Supporting Anti-Semites

Written by Donald Hank on Saturday, 22 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

The EU has unsavory connections to the past, an unenviable record in the present, and is still perceived as a force for good. It's but a mirage, and a dangerous one for the countries of Europe and for Ukraine.

The EU Supporting Anti-Semites

Not a few conservative leaders are suggesting that the bankrupt US should heroically wade into another military conflict to "help" Ukraine to gain "freedom". This so-called freedom consists of their option to enter into an association with the EU. Sen. John McCain is condemning the Obama administration for not defending "democracy." So since the EU and Russia are both US trading partners, and since the Western Ukraine is pro EU and the East is pro-Russia, whom should our soldiers shoot, John?

Ukrainian Revolt is "Staged and Faked"

Written by Donald Hank on Saturday, 22 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Why is the EU meddling with Ukraine? The answers have been elusive, but could it be part of the long-term plan to complete the de-Christianization of Europe?

Ukrainian Revolt is

"Forget your recent past. It was staged and faked."

Russia Asks: What Good is a Street That Does Not Lead to a Church?

Written by Donald Hank on Wednesday, 19 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

The world has turned upside down and now sidewise as well since it seems that Russia, once the evil communist empire, may now be returning to its culturally conservative roots while the USA, one-time leader of the free world, embraces radicalism.

Russia Asks: What Good is a Street That Does Not Lead to a Church?

A recent article by William S. Lind in American Conservative points out the obvious: Vladimir Putin’s Russia is now the world’s foremost defender of conservatism, having replaced in that role the United States that once seemed to protect and defend traditional values everywhere.

The Pharisees are Still Raging

Written by Donald Hank on Monday, 17 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Men of common sense, patriots who love their countries and deplore the tyranny they see growing around them, are being harassed by little men of no vision who are willing to countenance evil in the name of the law.

The Pharisees are Still Raging

There are numerous commentaries in the msm and the conservative media that condemn Ed Snowden as a traitor. In fact, I occasionally receive angry emails from people expressing this opinion. They appear outraged that I would defend 'the traitor.'

Time to Relearn Sovereignty

Written by Donald Hank on Friday, 14 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

In the rush to build a transnational world order, the concept of sovereignty, and even the word itself, has disappeared down the memory hole.

Time to Relearn Sovereignty

Sovereignty: For centuries past, the idea that a state could be sovereign was always connected to its ability to guarantee the best interests of its own citizens. Thus, if a state could not act in the best interests of its own citizens, it could not be thought of as a “sovereign” state.

Snowden Controversy: Elites vs the People -- Whose Side Are You On?

Written by Donald Hank on Tuesday, 11 February 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

They want you to believe that the consensus is that Snowden is a traitor. The only people who believe that are the few, the powerful, who want to shackle the rest of us in chains.

Snowden Controversy: Elites vs the People -- Whose Side Are You On?

I sent out an inquiry to my email list this morning to see what conservatives think about Ed Snowden. As it turns out, most conservatives were forgiving of, or in agreement with, Ed Snowden. And while there have been opinion polls, the national discussion on this is managed by people with an agenda, right, left or libertarian. Other problems include normalcy bias. We have not caught up to the uncomfortable fact that our government may not have our best interests at heart.

Senate's Frantic Distraction Efforts in Snowden Affair

Written by Donald Hank on Friday, 31 January 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

The lapdogs of the proto-dictatorial state have forgotten about the Nuremberg trials in their rush to paint Edward Snowden as a traitor.

Senate's Frantic Distraction Efforts in Snowden Affair

They're doing damage control again.

The Origin of Obama's Master Plan to Wreck The Economy

Written by Donald Hank on Wednesday, 13 November 2013. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

It's not ineptitude on Obama's part that is ruining the nation. It is, in fact, his strategy as a brief look at the history of the Frankfurt School makes readily apparent.

The Origin of Obama's Master Plan to Wreck The Economy

We know that welfare now tops $1 trillion/year under Obama. CNNMoney showed in 2012 that 41 percent of working age Americans were not working. Most of us, on some level of our consciousness, sense that there will be a colossal crash.

NSA and Cellphone Gate: Framing the Issue Correctly

Written by Donald Hank on Friday, 01 November 2013. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

The German press reports that NSA spying on Angela Merkel may not just be spy business as usual, but may be related to the President's antipathy to the Germany leader.

NSA and Cellphone Gate: Framing the Issue Correctly

There is little danger that the spy agencies will be defunded as a result of the NSA’s excessive spying on allies, despite the warnings of zealous conservative commentators, who fear that spying, an important part of national security, may be suspended altogether as a result of what they consider nitpicking criticism of what the Germans call Cellphone-Gate (Handygate in German) as reported in Bild am Sonntag.

Anarcho-Capitalism: Fresh Fish or Yesterday’s Catch?

Written by Donald Hank on Monday, 21 October 2013. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Further thoughts on the relevance of anarcho-capitalism. Columnist Don Hank continues the conversation.

Anarcho-Capitalism: Fresh Fish or Yesterday’s Catch?

I want to thank Brian White for taking the effort and time to respond to my commentary on AnCap (Anarcho-Capitalism, or AC). His response forced me to think more deeply about the subject.
