Fire and Fury? Or Dumb and Dumber? The New Hollywood Blockbuster Featuring Captain Trump and Other Assorted Megalomaniacs

Regular readers may be aware of my fondness for recalling these words from George W. Bush’s Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff, Karl Rove: “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality – judiciously, as you will – we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to […]

Too Much Exceptionalism Hath Made the US Elites Mad

What kind of person really wants to see relations between the world’s biggest nuclear armed countries deteriorate? Who wants to see the situation between the US and Russia, which has become at least as dangerous as the Cuban missile crisis of 1962, get even worse? Or to put it another way, who would not welcome a genuine dialogue between the leaders of these two great countries? The answer to these questions is of course those who have completely lost their […]

A “Denier” Explains the Logical Fallacies of the Man-Made Climate Change Hypothesis

Mr Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement provoked a strong, if entirely predictable reacton from the global elites, the media and millions of ordinary folks who presumably believe, with all sincerity, that his actions are going to lead to environmental Armageddon. They have also seen a resurgence in those dread insults, “denial” and “denier” – words once used almost exclusively to describe those who deny an actual historical fact, namely Adolf Hitler’s policy of exterminating Jews […]

Madness Grips the Imperial City

That the US political system is in the grip of collective madness ought to be obvious to anyone who has been looking at what has been going on in Washington DC for the last few years. It has been present for some time now, but was to a certain extent hidden under the cover of some fig leaf or other – “nation-building”; “responsibility to protect”; “the war on terror”; “some other slogan”. But in the past few years, and especially […]

Hillary Clinton in The Resistance … and Other Philosophical Questions

    PS. Just in case you don’t know what the Clinton meme is referring to, the woman who epitomises the Globalist oligarchy has now returned from her walk in the woods to style herself as a champion of “The Resistance”. Go on laugh. Laugh out loud, it’s so absurd. PPS. Silly me, but I’ve just realised the answer to the riddle. Since Mrs Clinton has been talking a lot about walking in the woods a lot, and since there is a […]

Nuts to Impeach Nut After Nut Fired Nut When Nut Refused to Drop Nuts Conspiracy After Nut Won Election Against Nut?

A couple of months ago I had a bet with a friend that Mr Trump would not be President by the end of the year. Nothing substantial. Just a token £0.01. Right now, I would say that bet is looking more certain by the hour, or you might say with every passing Tweet put out from the “leader of the free world”. In many ways that’s an appropriate title for Mr Trump. That’s because he represents perhaps better than anyone […]

Has Donald Trump Just Started the Beginning of the End of His Presidency?

I gave my thoughts yesterday on how the Deep State is closing in on Donald Trump, forcing him either to comply with their demands or be destroyed. Within minutes of writing that piece came the news that he had fired the Director of the FBI, James Comey. It took a while for me to process the impact that this will have, but now that I have, I believe that his actions mark the beginning of the end of what will […]

The Deep State Net Closes in on Mr Trump

Updated at the bottom in the wake of the firing of James Comey If you were to draw a graph of the coverage of the Trump / Russia story in the mainstream media over the past few months, you would notice two very striking features. One would be a significant dip in the number of stories around the issue after the first week in April. The second would be a significant increase in stories around the end of April, beginning […]

The Emperor’s Old Clothes

Once upon a time there was an Emperor who was very rich, very vain, and exceedingly foolish. In his country emperors were elected every four years, and because many of the people had become tired of voting for Emperor after Emperor, only to find that the new one wore the same clothes as the last one, he promised that if they voted for him, he would wear a new set of clothes. “Vote for me,” he said. “I’ll put on […]

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: […]

Chemical Weapons Again and Why Our Loss of Reason May End up Leading us Into a Huge and Devastating War

One of the signs that we in the West have, as a people, lost the ability to reason is the increased tendency to rush to judgement whenever a catastrophic event occurs. We saw it a few weeks back when a man called Khalid Masood drove a car into people on Westminster bridge, killing three and injuring many more, before stabbing PC Keith Palmer to death. Within minutes of the attack, it was said to be a terrorist attack, linked to ISIS, […]

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 […]

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 […]

How the Mainstream Media Launders the News

There are generally reckoned to be three stages involved in the process of money laundering. The first is the introduction of money into the financial system. This is known as placement. The second is the attempt to conceal the illegal nature of the funds by carrying out various transactions. This is known as layering. And then thirdly, the launderer makes “legitimate” purchases with the funds they have placed and layered through the system. This is called integration. Put another way, stage one […]

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 […]

Is Donald the Last Trump Before the Rapture? Er no, But it’s Fun Teasing Dispensationalists

Being a rampantly postmillennial sort of a guy, I am firmly persuaded that the Kingdom of God will grow throughout the centuries, until the world is fully Christianised. Could take hundreds of years. Could take thousands. I know this is a minority position. Even a tiny minority position. But it is, I believe, the biblical position, as this passage from 1 Corinthians chapter 15 demonstrates: “But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
