Why Our Inconsistent Foreign Policy Consistently Fails

Written by Donald Hank on Thursday, 23 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Our foreign policy is blind to the complexities of culture and religion. And that's why it fails over and over and over.

Why Our Inconsistent Foreign Policy Consistently Fails

Western foreign policy avoids the culture factor in its evaluation of friend vs. foe.

Sharia Enforcers in a Christian Country -- Here it Comes

Written by Donald Hank on Thursday, 16 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Replacing Christianity with agnosticism and secularism has not had the intended result of turning Europeans into obedient agnostic socialists. Instead, many are becoming attracted to Islam, something quite the opposite of the intended result.

Sharia Enforcers in a Christian Country -- Here it Comes

Bernard Chalumeau, founder of France Libre and expert on international law, sent me a link to a story of Sharia Police, an unauthorized group of Muslim activists posing as cops in Germany and harassing and threatening people for patronizing bars, eating pork, and doing other things that are perfectly legal in Germany and none of their business. This is just the beginning of the harassment, since the demographics are rapidly shifting from non-Muslim to Muslim. Just imagine what is certainly on the way.

Sacred Sovereignty Must Be Restored

Written by Donald Hank on Tuesday, 14 October 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

A political party based on the principle of sovereignty could resonate with patriotic Americans.

Sacred Sovereignty Must Be Restored

American conservatives and libertarians have always stressed the importance of the U.S. Constitution as the ruling document in our government. Indeed, sticking to the Constitution could restore government. Yet, government moves farther and farther from that document, and sometimes with the aid of unwitting conservatives. For example, we have often made the mistake of supporting presidents based on machismo and swag instead of on their insistence on respect for the sovereignty of other countries. Indeed, we have in the past praised presidents for their decisiveness in invading a country without the permission of Congress prescribed in Article 1, Section 1, foolishly thinking we can have it both ways.

How my Son Mike Came to Recognize The Wickedness in Washington

Written by Donald Hank on Monday, 28 July 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Why do American Christians, the most patriotic of citizens, not insist that American foreign policy stop resulting in danger for Christians overseas?

How my Son Mike Came to Recognize The Wickedness in Washington

A few years ago my son, a child of divorce, remarked to me that he was thinking about joining the military. I worried about him doing that not because I am unpatriotic but because years ago I recognized that the US government had for many years been risking young American lives for questionable causes to say the least, and worse, since Clinton, our military misadventures had pointedly redounded to the persecution and murder of Christians and to the burning of countless churches in the Muslim world. I began to have the sneaking suspicion that this was not an accident.

Genocide and Culturicide in Ukraine

Written by Donald Hank on Wednesday, 23 July 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

A thick blanket of the fog of war has settled over Ukraine, much of it emitted by the West, that obscures the truth about events in the turbulent region.

Genocide and Culturicide in Ukraine

The NYT recently ran an article on the Malaysian jet shoot-down, quoting analysts from both Ukraine and Russia. It ends with a de rigueur statement from a US official who said he had “no reason” to doubt the Ukrainian analysis. Yet look what a Ukrainian official said:

Keynes = Marx to the Tenth Power

The only true stimulus is less government-business cronyism. We therefore desperately need to introduce and enforce the concept of separation of business and state.

Keynes = Marx to the Tenth Power

The Von Mises organization recently published an article showing how Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (pronounced Ah‛-bĕ) is severely damaging the Japanese economy through his Keynesian economic policies, borrowed from Uncle Sam, who has had equal “success” with them. Abe introduced a program of currency issuance of unprecedented magnitude that immediately led to an equally unprecedented sales tax increase that has drastically curtailed household spending.

Facts be Damned: Russia is Foe, China is Friend

Written by Donald Hank on Monday, 30 June 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

The political class wants its dubious two minutes of hate against Russia to continue indefinitely. Meanwhile, is anyone paying any attention to China?

Facts be Damned: Russia is Foe, China is Friend

GOP mouthpieces are stating or suggesting in unison that, while China is guilty of economic misdemeanors, Russia is the most formidable military foe America has.

Deconstructing Same-sex “Marriage”

Written by Donald Hank on Thursday, 26 June 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Criticism of same-sex marriage has largely been a Christian effort, but there are secular considerations as well.

Deconstructing Same-sex “Marriage”

The same sex marriage issue can be viewed from a Judeo-Christian viewpoint and from a secular viewpoint. If you are a Christian, then the first part of this discussion below is especially for you. If you are an Orthodox Jew or other non-Christian, or if you want to learn how to debate from the secular standpoint, the second part applies.

Biggest Lie of The Deceptocracy so Far

Double standards, hypocrisy, lies and propaganda in today's Europe.

Biggest Lie of The Deceptocracy so Far

Will 2017 Look Like 1917?

Written by Donald Hank on Tuesday, 10 June 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Our present age is marked by uncertainty and a disconnect between government and the people. In this, it is remarkably similar to another time and place, a century ago in Russia.

Will 2017 Look Like 1917?

I average about 120 emails a day, mostly forwards and opinions on current political and economic events and conditions. Lately, I am seeing a trend: More and more disgruntled Americans of both major political parties as well as independent voters and non-voters, are saying that the government is no longer a viable avenue for change. They are increasingly saying the only venue left for change is the streets and the barricades. If the trend continues, something will happen. It is in the air and we all sense it, if only subliminally.

Soros Mourns The Passing of The EU (Part IV)

Written by Donald Hank on Thursday, 05 June 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Europeans are slowly experiencing a late awakening to the loss of sovereignty in their own countries and now for the first time since the war, they are rising up and taking their own destinies into their hands. Will we do likewise?

Soros Mourns The Passing of The EU (Part IV)

Geert Wilders, leader of the PVV (Partij Voor de Vrijhijd, or Freedom Party) is another very sincere leader who, though displaying a somewhat more blunt style than Marine, also cares deeply about his own country and is eager to restore its sovereignty. He too expresses concern over the Muslim invasion and has called for a halt to the EU-imposed immigration from Morocco due to the disproportionate number of crimes committed by that community. The majority of his countrymen seem to agree. He has received death threats and needs body guards to walk outside. The Dutch msm once hammered him mercilessly but are increasingly reserved now that PVV has become decidedly mainstream.

Soros Mourns The Passing of The EU (Part III)

George Soros admitted to having an NGO operating in Ukraine that was involved in the recent events there. Oddly, he then complains of Putin doing the same.

Take a look at this exchange between Soros and Zakaria and keep in mind that the globalists and neocons are busy pinning all the troubles in Ukraine on the Russians.

The EU is voluntary only for the powerful and well connected, like George Soros. For the vast majority had no say whatsoever in the creation of the European super state.

Soros Mourns The Passing of The EU (Part II)

One sign that Soros is desperately flailing about is that he uses the old tried-and-failed tactic of smearing the anti-EU parties and their perceived allies the Russians.

Let’s look at this part of the interview:

With Eurosceptic parties trending toward a takeover of their countries’ legislature, there can be little doubt that Soros’ “tragedy” is in the works and that he is fully aware of this.

Europe Longs For the Sovereignty it Has Lost

Written by Donald Hank on Friday, 23 May 2014. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

In an interview translated by Don Hank, Marine LePen shared her views on Russia, Putin, sovereignty and European civilization.

Europe Longs For the Sovereignty it Has Lost

My translation from the German of part of a recent interview with Marine LePen, whose anti-EU party Front National is trending to become the most popular in France, follows. This trend bodes ill for the EU but well for the French people. The issue is sovereignty — the right of a people to determine their own way and their own future — for example, the right not to be taxed to supply peripheral countries like Greece with perennial bailouts.
