(OR: Why is Russia in the Middle East with troops?)
Unfortunately, Rooster has no magical crystal ball, but he does have history and some knowledge of the area. Knowing history allows one some idea of what is happening now and may happen tomorrow.
Nowhere in the media has Rooster found a good explanation of why Putin would put his people in harm’s way in the Middle East. Clearly he has kept out until now.
Russia does not need the Middle East Oil, although there is some discussion of Russia’s natural oil supply getting thin. Certainly not its Natural Gas resources which are abundant. Russia and especially Putin, must clearly remember the terrible effects of their defeat in Afghanistan. It was the final straw for the Russian Empire and the collapse of its Communism dream. This must haunt Putin every night. Clearly Putin does not need Russian Airplanes being shot out of the air and its pilots mal treated, by Turkey or any other Muslim in the Middle East. The Russian leaders are not stupid and over and over again have witnessed the U.S. failing in its objectives there. They know they cannot do any better, alone. They know their Commercial Jets are just as vulnerable as any other countries. Pages and pages of history prove the area is a cauldron of killing, chaos, and back stabbing. It is not lost on them. Putin and all of the Russian leaders are painfully aware of the trouble Russian has had with the bordering countries other than Mongolia, China, and the Western Powers. The ones in particular are Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, and Georgia. The first is dominantly Islam of the Sunni faith. The Second is 91 percent Islam with 85 percent Shia. Georgia is less Islamic with about 10% Sunni. It is the latter which has given Russia the most trouble. Since the Soviet Empire failed, its trouble with the Islamic borders has been nothing but awful.
Putin has publically declared that something is wrong with Islam since its devotees will not assimilate in Russia. He has demanded that they do. They don’t.
Conclusion is all the experience Russia has had with Islam has been bad. Still they have helped Iran with its nuclear and missile efforts. They have meet with the High Religious leader of Iran, just as Putin is doing right now.
The question is why has Russia helped Iran and is now in Iraq and Syria fighting ISIS.? Some have said it is in retaliation for the sanctions imposed by the west. This is short thinking. Some have said it is purely a matter of money in the sale of military knowledge. Russia can use the money but there are other less dangerous ways to do that. Some say it is simply anti- Zionist, and Putin wants to hurt Israel. This is a weak thought to, because there is a very large Jewish population in Russia. They number some 14.2 million there. Putin is not crazy enough to promote a civil war or his sudden loss of popularity. So what is it that motivates Russia in this intrusion?
It is Putin. It is his concept of Islam and what it has done to his Mother Russia. One thing for certain, Putin is a true patriot for his country. He wants it to be big and strong and he wants it to dominate others. Since he has been in power he has had one day after another of terror attacks by Islam. The Islamic population is hefty at about 20 million. Most are along the southern, Middle Eastern, border. Islamic conflict has not been confined to the borders, but has been in Moscow and most other large cities. What he has seen and believes is that it is stupid to support the Sunni sect of Islam. It is smarter to support Shia. He knows both are unstable, but he also knows that the Shia will not appoint a one world Islamic leader, like a Caliphate. This goes way back to the split between the two dominate sects. He knows that the great fear, and only logical fear, is what will happen if Islam becomes united. If that happens then the world, especially Russia, will be in the third world war, and this time it will be between Islam and everyone else. It has been the Sunni sect that has given Russia the most trouble. It is the Sunni who had the last world Caliphate in the Ottoman Empire, and it’s the Sunni who created ISIS. It is ISIS which has created a new Caliphate and through it, worldwide attraction. Russia’s border will be more peaceful, if he can keep Sunni and Shia at each other’s throats and get rid of an Islamic World caliphate.
How does this relate to Iraq and Syria? The Shia, the leaders of Iran, have always wanted to have a Mediterranean influence. If ISIS can be defeated then it is an open road. Iraq has already fallen to Shia leadership. (Thank you Mr. Obama) The leader of Syria, Doctor Assad, is Shia. He has lead a sometimes brutal regime because of the Sunni and Shia conflict. Syria is mostly Sunni. ISIS is just part of that. If Assad can be the winner, then Iran/Shia will have that open door, that open road, to the Mediterranean Sea. It would be an almost East to West drive from anyplace in Iran to the Mediterranean through Iraq and Syria. It would make a major division for the Sunni.
This then is the reason Putin is there and why he will stay there so long as he can help the Shia and Sunni conflict.

(OR: Refugee or Invader, which is it?)
While traveling this week Rooster picked up the USA paper and read a by line “Record refugee flights hit all parts of Globe”. Then in another byline, “More Mexicans return home than enter the U.S.” Couple these small finds with the constant blather about human crisis and how we have to accept the runaways as a humanitarian act is just poor thinking. No matter how many times you hear it on TV and the radio, it is wrong.
People fleeing one place for another has been a part of the human experience since we began collecting in places. Sometimes the cause is a natural occurrences and sometimes it is humans. Most will agree that helping the weak and downtrodden, or politically oppressed is a good thing. Taking them in and giving them shelter and food is a poor substitute for a good thing. Forcing them to remain or return with the tools necessary to recover their life is what should be done. Each human has a responsibility to make his or her place a decent one to live. It is not productive to leave the chaos for someone else and desert those who remain behind. Where we are born may not be our choice, but each place needs people who demand peace, and industry. Running never solved the world’s problems. In many ways it is a selfish act. In an earlier article Rooster told you Europe should, return the runaways, with a demand of those places to accept them or else. We have no reason to be involved. It is their problem and force them to solve it. There are many humanitarian ways this can be done. They could change their religion you know.
Understanding a Muslim makes the problem worse. According to the Quran each believer is supposed to help others, so long as they are Muslim. They are not to help any other Religion. According to their book they are supposed to be the only religion on earth, and it is a sin to act like or assimilate into the life of others. Point is each Muslim will not fit, any more than a block will fit into a round hole of its size. A Muslim will always resist a Christian, Jew, Hindu, Buddhist, or Sun worshiper. Not even the atheist or devil worshiper is exempt. Moreover they will not just resist, they will, like a cancer, attempt to live off their host and by doing so destroy it. Keep in mind Islam is not just a religion. It is a Religament (combination of religion and government). This means they will not obey your law unless they have to for the moment. Even when they appear to go along, they do so as the reluctant lover. Not a nice event. They take advantage of do-gooders. Knowing their incompatibility you should have no problem saying No, No, you cannot come or stay. Tell them they must return to places where their Religament rules. This is the humanitarian thing to do for the people they left behind and for we the non-Muslim folks. In fact all those who chose not to be Muslim, should have a day to fight this Islamic cancer. Everyone should wear pink, even the macho guys. It is not our problem. It is theirs.

(OR;  Obama kills Keystone, & Portugal Socialist kill Peace.)

    Rooster sees a parallel between Obama killing the Keystone Pipeline and Socialist in Portugal joining forces to kill a successful and peaceful government.

    To bring you up to speed, the WSJ reported both items under their section “Nation and World”.   Obama, by Executive dictate, “kills proposal for Keystone pipeline” which is the proposed pipeline across the U.S. to transport oil from Canada.  Safer than trucks and trains, Amen.  The State Department ruled that it would have a negative environmental impact and Obama previously said if that was so, he would support it.  Once it was so, he flopped the flip and says he is now against it because the pipe would carry “Dirty Oil”.   Of course the denial fits because of his war on Global Warming through world control. The point is his refusal is a clear denial of the people’s choice, a clear reckless disregard for our economy, and a clear failure of common sense.  Obama not only appears to be a closet Muslim, but at the same time  is a dedicated socialist/communist.  Both belief systems are devoted to a one world rule.  Islam does it with Allah’s help, and Communism does it without a God.  Obama does not know which horse to ride, but in his own words he probably would side with Islam.  You can search his mind and the corners of the Oval Office, and you will not find Mr. Common Sense anywhere about.

    Across the pond, in Portugal you find the same absence of that elusive gentleman.   The WSJ byline is “2 leftist parties say they’ll work together.”  What it then says is that the Communist party and Socialist Party have reached an agreement to vote together to destroy the existing middle of the road coalition which has been turning the country around from financial collapse.

    In both you have to observe a weird mind set which is bound and determined to destroy and to hell with the people.  Both Obama’s brain and the brains of the Portuguese left rejoice at the destruction of that which they do not like.  The “like” part has little to do with logic, or common sense.  In this regard there is a very disturbing correlation between them and the typical mass killer who lashes out at what he is emotionally against.   This brainless desire to destroy cannot really be called idiotic or insane because there are simply too many who think the same. In every society it is the common sense vs the common senseless. The latter opt to destroy rather than to debate and work out compromise. It is S.A.D.

(OR: Partisan, partisan, and how.)
Let us take a look at the most recent vote for the Speaker of the House. Nobody in the media pays attention to the details. Rooster has not seen one article on the lopsided nature of the vote and what it means.
There are 435 members of the House of Representatives. A majority of that is 218. That is all it takes to elect a new Speaker of the House. Understand the vote is not spontaneous. Weeks of conferences and back and forth go on before the election. This means that by the time the election finally happens everybody in the room is pretty confident how many votes are stacked up where. Keep in mind the Speaker does not have a party label on it. The Speaker should be one who can reach out to both sides and move the ship of state down a safe channel. Mr. Ryan’s initials sound promising….PR. Obviously the majority party prevails, but not always. The Party label is reserved for the next in command, the Majority Leader and the next, the Majority whip. The same exists for the minority. The title of the “Speaker of the House” is neither Republican nor Democrat.
In the election of Mr. Ryan, the Grand Old Party voted 236 or 54% for Ryan. 9 voted for Webster the GOP Freedom Caucus’s favorite. Three Democrats and three Republicans voted for others. The Democrat votes, except for the three who pushed the wrong button, voted in a block for Pelosi for Speaker. This is what is important.
The GOP has many voices. The Democrats do not. Just looking at the candidates for President tells you that. One voice has become the mantra of Liberals. They follow the leader and do as they are told. Very robotic you know. Behind the scenes, almost 50 GOP’s balked and wanted assurances from Ryan before he could get their vote. The assurances gave him most of them. Nothing like that on the Democrat side. 184 voted for Pelosi in a solid block. End of thinking.
One would have hoped that the left, knowing the vote, in a spirit of cooperation, in a spirit of patriotic attitude, would have allowed their people to vote for the new speaker, and maybe not even run a candidate. They did not and they have not shown any such common sense in a long time. Looking back on the vote for Obama Care the very same block headedness occurred even for those who, by doing so, would and did lose the next election. Look, obviously Ryan had enough votes to win. Pelosi obviously did not. You would think, that in a spirit of cooperativeness, some could at least vote for the obvious winner. Not one. Not one Democrat voted for Ryan.
The left, far more than the right, will not cross the isle. Rooster always remembers an event in the Senate when McCain was running against Obama. McCain went across the aisle and shook hands with Obama. Obama was not even receptive to McCain’s overture, and gave a ½ hearted hand in return. McCain had to retreat with an embarrassed look on his face. Some years ago Democrats built a wall, and will not allow grazing on the other side. It is their way or the hiway. The Country would have more discussion and back and forth if the House was all Republicans. Maybe that turns on the light. Maybe Republicans are Constitutional Americans, and Democrats are not.
Still when the House Speaker vote was already in the can (Movie talk), when there is not the slightest question about the winner, you would think common sense would dictate a more public show of cooperation. Not so with the Democrats. I would not call it a goose step mentality. More of a lock step, but never forget it was German Socialists who invented the former. It is still a favorite of North Korea and other very socialistic countries.
