Fancy Being Pushed Into Another War on Yet Another Phoney Pretext?

One of the most basic duties of any Government is to maintain a military that is capable of defending the country against foreign aggression. However, an equally important Governmental responsibility is to ensure that this military is only used when it is absolutely needful. A responsible Government is one that takes every step it can to avoid war, only engages when necessity compels it to, and when all other options have been exhausted. It would be good if these words […]

Trump Takes the Cake: That Awful Moment When it Really Hits You That the World’s Most Powerful Country is run by the World’s Stupidest Man

I am rarely lost for words. I am close to it now. If you haven’t already seen the exchange between the man posing as a President, and a woman posing as a journalist asking “tough questions” over his Syrian bombing adventure, you need to see it. It is beyond parody. It is beyond jaw-dropping. It is beyond embarrassing. You need to see it to know the calibre of the man who is now sending an armada to the Korean peninsula, […]

Congratulations Flood in to Donald Trump From Around the World After His Attack on Syria

Mr Trump’s hit on Syria last week may have been met with utter dismay from many who voted for him, but it has been a big hit with many former opponents. In another Blogmire exclusive, we can reveal some of the letters of congratulations Mr Trump has received from around the world. Dear Donald, I just wanted to let you know that I’m really very sorry for some of the things I said about you in the past. I must […]

Donald J. Swamp: How the Man Who Promised to Drain the Swamp Got Drained by the Swamp

There were only three reasons that a rational person might have considered going out to vote for Donald J Swamp. The first was that he wasn’t the psychopath, Hillary Clinton. The second was that he looked to be the least likely of all the candidates to start a war with Russia and therefore WWIII. And the third was that he said he was going to “drain the swamp”. They were always very thin reasons. As I wrote back here and here: […]

There are Three Kinds of Lies: Lies, Damned Lies, And Lies That Could Lead to a Conflict With a Nuclear-Armed Country

Part of me had wondered just how long the neocon fanatics and their legion of useful idiots could keep up the whole Russian hacking, Russian aggression, “Russia is trying to undermine our democracy/way of life/economy/fill in the blank with any garbage you like” meme? The whole thing is so wearyingly tiresome, not to mention dangerously stupid, that the optimist in me had hoped that at some point even those who have perpetuated this nonsense for so long would get fed up […]

It’s Okay, it’s Just the Good Guys Spying on You

Just imagine that an international whistleblowing organisation released a huge number of files about the FSB (successor to the KGB), containing details on their eavesdropping capabilities which would make George Orwell’s eyes bulge. Just imagine that the files revealed they could spy on anyone, anytime, anywhere. They could do it through your computer. They could do it through your phone. They could do it through your SatNav. Oh, and they could even do it through your fridge. And just imagine […]

Blood in the Water or Blood on the Streets? The Reckless Revolutionary Sentiments of Owen Jones

What do you call a man who writes the following: “There’s blood in the water, and the anti-Trump opposition should be in a hunting mood. Michael Flynn, the US national security adviser, is the first major scalp of Donald Trump’s administration, and so soon. This regime is weak. A president who lost the popular vote by nearly three million votes, who has increasingly catastrophic personal ratings, is now embroiled in a major scandal. An opposition that has mobilised the biggest protests in US […]

Exclusive: How Donald Trump Decides His Foreign Policy

For those of us who saw the psychopathic Mrs Clinton as a gigantic threat to world peace, hearing Donald Trump speaking about “getting along with Russia”, as opposed to wanting to go to war with it, was really rather refreshing and even cause for a faint glimmer of hope that the US might actually be about to abandon its messianic claims over the whole world and settle down to being a proper country that minds its own business. To be fair, there were some […]

“Liberalis-Leftus” Finally Awakens After Eight Years of Hibernation

After eight years of peaceful slumber, in which it has slept on seemingly unaware of the happenings in the world outside its lair, that strange little beast, Liberalis-Leftus, has finally woken from its hibernation to once again lift up its voice in protest at all it deems wrong with the world. For those who have been awake throughout that eight years, it might seem odd that Liberalis has just miraculously rediscovered its voice after so long. However, in its defense, it should […]

Madonna’s Revolution of Love Has Broken Out and it’s Very Very Angry

It’s an interesting phenomenon that despite the multitude of pop songs over the past few decades encouraging us to love one another more there appears, if anything, to be less love in society than before the love song movement began. Perhaps the problem is that the rest of us just haven’t taken their words seriously enough, and so consequently we have ended up with an increasingly divided, broken society. Whatever the reason, you might think that the results would have […]

The Real Legacy of Barack Hussein Obama: How to Wilfully Start a New Cold War and Get Away With it

Regular readers of this blog will know that I am no great fan of Donald Trump, and I hold my breath to see what on earth his presidency will bring. Nevertheless, being an avid adherent of the Biblical idea that God often raises up fools and worse to act as his wrecking ball against that which is in need of a good wrecking, I am patiently waiting to see whether Mr Trump is — like a Jehu or a Nebuchadnezzar — indeed […]

Are we Witnessing the End of the Managerial Age?

Imagine meeting a man you haven’t seen for a while in the street early in the new year. You exchange “Happy New Years” to one another, and you ask him how he and his family fared during 2016. The man tilts his head slightly, looks you in the eye, and begins: “As a family we’ve grown stronger over the past 12 months. Our combined income has risen by 6%, which is 3% above average for our area of the country. […]

Obamandias — The Legacy of Barack Hussein Obama

With grateful acknowledgement to Percy Bysshe Shelley, and his great original tribute to hubris, pride and power, Ozymandias.   I met a traveller from the Indispensable Land, Who said—“Have you seen the empty hulk over yonder, That stands in the corridors of power?” Near it, alongside a broken Teleprompter, Half sunk a shattered visage lies, Whose turned up tippy tippy nose, And look of smug Exceptional Superiority from a great height, And sneer of patronising condescension, Tell that its sculptor well […]

Trump Hates Love and Love Hates Trump: A Tale of Post-Election Safe-Space Therapy

“You saying she’s been sitting there for over a week now?” asked Marcia. “Yeah,” replied Jake. “She just sits and stares at the wall. Occasionally she says something, but it’s usually incoherent. Eats a little. Cries maybe a couple of times an hour. Other than that, she just sits.” Rouge, his girlfriend, had been sitting on the floor of one of the university’s ten designated Safe-Space Areas ever since election night. The only time she had stood up was to […]

America Elects Man For Not Being Somebody Else; Mrs Clinton Enters History Books as the Worst President America Never Had — Repentance Urgently Needed

It was the best of elections; it was the worst of elections. A time of wisdom; and a time of foolishness. Okay, no wisdom. Lots of foolishness, I’ll grant you, but precious little in the way of sagacity. But now that the curtain has finally fallen on the Freak Show Masquerading as an Election, what do we see as we survey the landscape? It was the best of elections Mrs Hillary Clinton – probably the worst President America never had […]

Three World Records Set in One Day After FBI Closes Clinton Investigation

According to sources at the Guinness Book of Records, the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) may have achieved two world records in one day, plus indirectly led to a third being set. The first record came when the Bureau’s Director, James Comey, announced on Sunday that the organisation had concluded their new investigation into Mrs Clinton, and that their opinion had not changed since those they expressed in July. Coming just nine days after he wrote to Congress […]

Guest Post: Why I’m Exceptional & Indispensable – by Hillary Clinton

Following on from her recent piece for Time magazine, in which she so eloquently explained why America is indispensable and exceptional, TheBlogMire brings you an exclusive piece in which Mrs Clinton explains why an indispensable and exceptional nation must have an indispensable and exceptional leader. (Warning: May contain traces of satire) If there’s one core belief that has guided and inspired me every step of my career in public service, it’s this: I am an exceptional woman. A great, unselfish, […]

Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton Now Starring in: The Basket of Deplorables — A Freak Show Masquerading as an Election

“As a connoisseur of human folly, I thought you impatient to be savouring these delights.” “Of some delights, I believe, sir, a little goes a long way.” Mr Bennet & Lizzie Bennet in the 1995 TV adaptation of Pride & Prejudice   I can’t help but recall these lines whenever my thoughts turn to the freak show masquerading as an election, which is currently hurtling its way to its dramatic and awful conclusion somewhere across the Atlantic. Were the spectacle […]

An Ae-Psyops Fable: The Little Old Woman Who Cried Bear!

Once upon a time there was a little old woman who lived in a large town. She was very ambitious and wanted to become the town’s Mayoress, and she often told people that they really ought to elect her because the town needed to break what she called “the glass ceiling”. But there was one problem. Many in the town were distrustful of her. For she was known to be exceedingly corrupt, regularly untruthful, and committed to sending the townsmen […]

The Real Lesson From Orlando

It truly is in keeping with our narcissistic, must-have-it-now culture that it takes about an hour after a mass killing for politicians and the media to give us the reasons, motives and lessons to be learnt from the atrocity. It’s ISIS! It’s terrorism! It’s guns! It’s homophobia! Yet if we have learnt anything in the aftermath of the Orlando killings, it should be this: Maybe best to wait at least a few days before pronouncing with certainty on the motives […]

Putin Weaponises Crosshairs, Foiling Plans to Keep Romania & Poland Safe From Iranian WMDs

At a recent ceremony in Deveselu, Romania, the Aegis Ashore Missile Defense System (AAMDS) was declared operationally certified — a key milestone in Phase II of the European Phased Adaptive Approach (EPAA). According to U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet Public Affairs: This Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) System represents a significant increase in the capability to defend NATO European territory from attacks originating outside the Euro-Atlantic area, and is a key milestone in the development of NATO Ballistic Missile Defense.  If […]

Pushing Mr Obama and the Globalist Project to the Back of the Queue

To those conservatives who have been operating under the assumption that Britain has a special relationship with a special friend called America, I do hope that Mr Obama has managed to rid you of that notion. I hope that if nothing else, Mr Obama’s typically crass intervention in the affairs of another country will have made you see the glaring truth. Although Mr Obama has made this clear in previous statements, his “back of the queue” line last Friday was […]

Frontman Obama Achieves Full Spectrum Arrogance

Back in 2008, I suppose that the neo-Trot Warlords that now run America were cock-a-hoop at the election of the man who rose from relative obscurity to the Presidency (NB. Can people stop referring to those people as neo-conservatives. Real conservatives conserve things. That’s obvious isn’t it? These revolutionaries do the opposite. That’s obvious too, isn’t it?). Here was a guy who was young(ish) and hip(ish), and what is more, he also appeared to be a one-man principle-free zone. Perfect! A […]

New Online Game: GET ASSAD — A Game of Smokes & Mirrors From @POTUS

The sequel to Kill ISIL: GET ASSAD – A Game of Smokes & Mirrors From @POTUS Aim of the Game You are the President of the United States (@POTUS) and your aim is to topple the Government of Syria to create a failed state. Introduction to the Game As the President of the world’s biggest military spender, you have almost unlimited resources at your disposal to achieve your objective. Not only this, but you also have a number of vassals who you can […]

Get Your Hands off our Jihadists

Here is my latest offering for the Conservative Woman website, this time on the subject of Syria. The United States and its allies suffered what is known as an Emperor’s New Clothes moment last week. After two decades of tearing up the notion of national sovereignty in their efforts to impose their will upon the world, it took a simple question from the Russian President at the United Nations General Assembly to reveal the nakedness of their utopian ideology: “Do […]

US Foreign Policy: “Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting”

Imagine a kid at school. An intimidating kid he is, packing a lot of muscle, used to getting his own way, and with no scruples about bullying other kids that stand in his way. His goal is to get everyone to acknowledge his authority and leadership over them, and he’s not afraid to use any number of tactics to make this happen. Sometimes he humiliates them. Sometimes he arm-twists them. Sometimes he threatens to take their money. Sometimes he gets other […]

Certifiably Crazy Carly: Mrs Fiorina & the Sad Decline of a Once Great Nation

If someone who was seriously vying to become leader of the world’s richest and most powerful country pledged not to even speak to the leader of the world’s biggest country if they became president, wouldn’t that immediately disqualify them for the role? You might think so, yet in the strange world of US politics it apparently qualifies as a plus point. In last week’s dog and pony show between Republocrat tough-guys, Carly Fiorina attempted to establish her tough-girl credentials by saying […]

After the Planned Parent Videos, What Next?

Below is a full length version of my monthly column for Samaritan Ministries International The series of videos put out by the Center for Medical Progress have done an amazing job of exposing the sheer cruel, greedy, callousness of that woefully misnamed organization, Planned Parenthood. We have learnt a good many things through these videos, but perhaps most glaring is this: the claim that abortion providers do what they do for the sake of women’s health is as hollow as an empty Coke can. […]

Planned Dismemberment

Dismemberment: The act of cutting, tearing, pulling, wrenching or otherwise removing the limbs of a living thing. There was a horrific story the other day about a pensioner in St. Petersburg suspected of killing more than a dozen people in the last 20 years. In what is believed to be her latest crime, 68-year-old Tamara Samsonova is alleged to have killed Valentina Ulanova, a 79-year-old woman that she was supposedly caring for, before going on to cut up her body dump the parts […]

Francois Hollande, Proconsul de District RĂ©gional de la France, Gets the Hump With Caesar

So Francois Hollande, Proconsul of the Regional District of France, has just found out that his bosses in the US Government, through the NSA, have been listening in on him and his predecessors for the last few years. Somehow this seems to have come as a surprise to him, and he is reportedly very unhappy at the news, calling it “unacceptable”. He also commented that “France will not tolerate actions that threaten its security and the protection of its interests”. […]

Most Absurd Statement of 2015: Here Comes Barack With Another Entry

I have a feeling that in this competition to find the Most Absurd Statement of 2015, Mr Barack Obama is likely to have the most entries. You’d think that this previous entry, made in his State of the Union address, would be enough: We’re upholding the principle that bigger nations can’t bully the small — by opposing Russian aggression, supporting Ukraine’s democracy, and reassuring our NATO allies. Last year, as we were doing the hard work of imposing sanctions along with our […]

The FIFA Scandal is Not About Football: It’s the Geopolitics, Stupid

I really could care less about football. As a game, I quite like it, but apart from that I see almost everything about it as being pretty dreadful — the often visceral hatred of one set of fans against another, the on-field cheating and theatrics, the stupid amounts of money and status given to men who are good at kicking a ball around, the swearing, the declining lack of sportsmanship amongst players and managers, the absurdly over-the-top sense of anticipation before England games, and the […]

The US Colony of Estonia Gives us a Lesson in Geopolitics

Here is something I wrote back in December in the wake of the Estonian Prime Minister’s pathetic reaction to the revelations of CIA torture: “I really, really loathed the USSR and all that it stood for. So too did the majority of Estonians. But unfortunately, it seems their black hats/white hats approach has blinded them and they are now heading back to the role of vassal nation of another increasingly repressive regime. And as they do so, their commitment to liberties and freedom of […]

Another Entry for Most Absurd Statement of 2015: Romuald Szeremietiew

The entries for the Most Absurd Statement of 2015 are still trickling in. Just to recap, our list so far, in date order, includes the following luminaries: Pierre Muscovici Yats O’Bomber John McCain Now an entry comes from a less well known candidate. He is Romuald Szeremietiew, the Head of the Academy of National Defence in Poland. Here he is with his entry: “If Russia wants to rebuild its empire, — and Russia says it wants to do it, using lands […]

Dmytro Yarosh and the Tragedy of UK and US Foreign Policy

Here’s something I wrote in my post earlier today about Petro Poroshenko’s part in the Minsk talks: “I don’t believe Passport Pete believes this will bring lasting peace either. The fact is he was pressured by Merkel and Hollande to agree to this, yet if he were to seriously set about implementing the terms of the agreement, he knows he may as well go and buy himself a length of rope to prepare for his lynching. He knows that there is […]

Will Minsk Bring Peace?

So what to make of the marathon talks at Minsk? Will they bring peace? Were there any “winners”? Were there any “losers”? I have to confess that I have no great expectations that this agreement will bring lasting peace, for a number of reasons: 1. The first is that the four powers – Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine – signed nothing whatsoever. Contrary to the way this is being reported in the mainstream media, not one of these parties actually […]

Obama: We Arm-Twisted Some Folks

Isn’t this the very definition of arrogant, belligerent bullying: “Now, I also think that if we were just resorting to that and we didn’t have a realistic view that there are bad people out there who are trying to do us harm — and we’ve got to have the strongest military in the world, and we occasionally have to twist the arms of countries that wouldn’t do what we need them to do if it weren’t for the various economic […]

Do Americans Know Who Those “Pro-US Troops” Are that their President is Considering Arming?

Someone once said that the truth is like a cork being held under water; you can keep trying to push it down but eventually your arm will get tired and it will come to the surface. Over the past few weeks, this has been happening fairly frequently, and from the mouths of those who would probably rather they hadn’t let on. Firstly, we had Viktor Muzhenko, Chief of Ukraine’s General Military Staff, who admitted that the Ukraine army is “not engaged […]

Does Eric Holder Really Believe His Own Criteria for Marriage?

So the Supreme Court in America has announced that it going to rule on whether the right to same-sex marriage should apply to all states of America. The Attorney General, Eric Holder, said that the Justice Department will file a “friend of the court” brief, urging the Supreme Court to endorse marriage equality. He went on to say the following: “It is time for our nation to take another critical step forward to ensure the fundamental equality of all Americans […]

The Only Solution to the Racial Divisions in America

The following is a longer version of a piece I wrote for Samaritan Ministries’ January newsletter: A jury retires to consider its verdict in the case of a white cop shooting a black man. In this particular case, there is no evidence that the police officer acted from a racial motive. In actual fact, all the evidence shows that he acted entirely in self-defence and had a justifiable fear that his life was in danger. Nevertheless, this is the latest […]
