Trump's Virtues Part II - TomKlingenstein.com

"The Woke radicals tell the Trump voters they are a threat to democracy. Think about that. They're saying, "You Trumpsters are a threat to democracy." The woke radicals also tell us ad nauseam that America is systemically racist. Trump knows this is deadly nonsense, and he says so. This charge of systemic racism bounces off Trump because he has no white guilt or any guilt for that matter. Trump tells his supporters what they already know: They are not racist and they do not have white privilege. The woke radicals shut up those who disagree. Trump will not be shut up. If they manage to put him in jail, he will still roar like a lion. "

Where we went wrong with the COVID-19 pandemic



"Last year, I had a life-changing experience at 90 years old. I went to space, after decades of playing an iconic science-fiction character who was exploring the universe. I thought I would experience a deep connection with the immensity around us, a deep call for endless exploration.
I was absolutely wrong. The strongest feeling, that dominated everything else by far, was the deepest grief that I had ever experienced.
I understood, in the clearest possible way, that we were living on a tiny oasis of life, surrounded by an immensity of death. I didn't see infinite possibilities of worlds to explore, adventures to have, or living creatures to connect with. I saw the deepest darkness I could have ever imagined, contrasting so starkly with the welcoming warmth of our nurturing home planet.
This was an immensely powerful awakening for me. It filled me with sadness. I realized that we had spent decades, if not centuries, being obsessed with looking away, with looking outside. I did my share in popularizing the idea that space was the final frontier. But I had to get to space to understand that Earth is and will stay our only home. And that we have been ravaging it, relentlessly, making it uninhabitable."

Fwd: Even Trudeau in Canada changing tune on immigration

Trudeau said temporary immigrants now make up 7.5% of the population, up from 2% in 2017, adding that they need to get the numbers "back under control."

"We want to get those numbers down," he said. "It's a responsible approach to immigration that continues on our permanent residents, as we have, but also hold the line a little more on the temporary immigration that has caused so much pressure in our communities."

The influx of immigrants into Canada since the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a dire crunch in several areas and has also led to increased rent prices and a strain on the health care system. 

"One of the reasons why we got here in the first place was that (provincial and federal) governments just didn't want to touch this issue out of a fear of looking xenophobic," Mike Moffatt, founding director of the Place Centre, told Reuters in February.

The publication said Canadian citizens supported immigration at a historically high level in 2020, which has since fallen to a three-

Trudeau's shift toward current public opinion on immigration also comes after his challenger, Conservative Party leader Pierre Poilievre, has taken a big lead in many opinion polls in the country.

How World War II Began

If, like me, you are interested in history, this video is a very good description of all the events that led up to World War II.

I was glad to see this because I have seen several videos from "Zoomer historian" who is a bit of a Hitler apologist.  He claims that World War II started when England and France declared war on Germany, but history claims that it was when Hitler invaded Poland.  France and England had promised to help protect Poland, so after Germany invaded, they gave Germany an ultimatum to withdraw which Hitler ignored.

"Zoomer historian" also claims that Churchhill was a warmonger, that Hitler didn't want war with England or the Soviet Union, and that Hitler made multiple peace offerings to England after he invaded Poland which the British ignored.

The history is complicated.  There is a big difference between what Hitler said publically and what he said privately.

Germany might have had a historic claim to Austria, which was ethically mostly German.  Austria didn't offer much resistance and the Austrian people cheered Hitler's invasion.  Had Hitler stopped with Austria he might have become a historical footnote.

However, Germany then invaded Czechoslovakia.  Hitler claimed that he only wanted a small part to protect ethnic Germans in Czechoslovakia, but he took the whole country anyway.

Had Hitler stopped there he could still have had peace.  Some countries, like the old Soviet Union or China, are smart in how they do this; they will invade one country and then wait decades for things to settle down to invade the next. 

As "Zoomer historian" points out, Hitler claimed that he only wanted a tiny part of Poland that was ethnically German.  However, once again he took the entire country and World War II began.

The Biggest Conspiracy Theory Of All

I heard this on the radio.  I'm very impressed.

Hitler used conspiracy theories to gain power.
