I think you are confusing "humanism" with "globalism," but in fact what you think you are referring to is "domination."

Globalism is linkage of human ecologies on a global scale. This dynamic has been in existence for eons to limited degrees. Granted, the East- West- Hemisphere division was fairly impermeable, but in that case we are talking about "half-globalism" for the last ~6,000 years or more and then the onset of "full globalism" at around 1600.

"Globalism" has nothing to do with the United Nations, which is a zombie institution which was created toward the end of WWII in an effort to prevent the Commies and the Yanks from careening directly from teaming up and killing fascists into killing each other. Even the reasons for its creation bear little resemblance to its reason for being today.

I honestly don't see anything substantially more "globalist" in Bush Sr.s policies or rhetoric than in any other preceding President. Interventionist? Absolutely. But lets call a spade a spade. Is it interventionism that Trump is really "against?" I don't think so. Otherwise why is he even paying any attention at all to China, North Korea, Philippines, etc.? I find it hard to reconcile the missile barrage that lit up the Syrian/Russian airbase or the "unlocked ROE + mega bombing" with describing Trump as either an "isolationist" or a "non-interventionist." He does plenty of business across national borders, and clearly is not opposed to that. Sure, he has expressed opposition to firms off-shoring assets and services to rip off the country but that is not the same thing.

Globalist is a false narrative as far as I can tell and I think everyone who uses it so blithely would do well to stop and think what they really think the word means.

Trump is distinctive there is no doubt about that and I'm sure on that point we can agree. Moreover, he is a transformative force, and a by-and-large salutary one at that. But "anti-globalist" or "against the globalist," whatever?

I just don't buy it. Being an American patriot has never nor will ever require isolationism, or any other nonsense which might be confuted with "globalism."

OPINION

How Brazile’s book exposes liberal media’s Hillary health coverup

By Michael Goodwin November 7, 2017 | 10:48pm | Updated

Silly, silly Donna Brazile. She’s publishing a book detailing turmoil in the Democratic Party during the 2016 campaign, highlighted by her concern that Hillary Clinton was seriously ill and might need to be replaced by Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders.

What’s the big deal? There’s no news here because all this was well-known and covered at the time by the big national newspapers and networks, right?

Wrong. If Brazile were rehashing things we knew, there would be no book and no bombshell headlines now.

Instead, she has thrown open a new and very big window on 2016 — and exposed yet again the consequences of the political biases of the Democratic media.

The missed stories are not merely the result of mistakes or sloppy reporting. Brazile’s book is a revelation in that it shows that many left-leaning journalists didn’t so much cover Clinton as cover up for her.

Put it this way: How is it possible that the leader of the Democratic Party was talking to colleagues about trying to replace its nominee during the general election because of health concerns, and none of the thousands of journalists covering the campaign got wind of it?

It’s not possible — if the media had been playing it down the middle and holding both candidates to the same standard of scrutiny. But big media missed a big story because so much campaign “news” coverage was tilted toward defeating Donald Trump and electing Clinton.


Anything that could possibly suggest Trump was unfit for the Oval Office — bingo, front page, top of the broadcast.

On the other hand, anything that could hurt Clinton was downplayed or ignored. Nothing to see here, move along.


The coverage of Clinton’s health was a prime example of the tilt. Her coughing fits, especially a long one on Labor Day, and a history of falling were pointed out by the popular Drudge Report, some Republicans and smaller, conservative-leaning sites to suggest she was not being honest about her health.

But her campaign always denied anything was wrong — allergies, the candidate and her flacks insisted, caused the persistent coughs, and major news organizations mostly nodded their heads and stayed mum, accepting the official denials without skepticism.

The dam cracked a bit on Labor Day, when an NBC reporter filed a 91-word, four-paragraph story that said Clinton had been unable to finish her speech in Ohio because of a coughing fit.

The truth was dangerous, so the Praetorian Guard sprang to Clinton’s defense. The NBC reporter, Andrew Rafferty, was mocked and insulted, first by the campaign, and then by journalists, including some MSNBC commentators who turned on their colleague as if he had violated a secret oath.

CNN joined the Clinton amen chorus, and at the Washington Post, political writer Chris Cillizza denounced the topic of Clinton’s health as “a totally ridiculous issue” and declared it a “sure-fire loser” for Trump.

“It’s hard to plausibly insist, based on the available data, that Clinton is ill,” insisted Cillizza, who is now at CNN.

Five days later, Clinton was unable to walk on her own and collapsed at the 9/11 ceremony in Manhattan as she tried to get into a van. The campaign insisted she was just “dehydrated” until a short video of the incident aired, then admitted the candidate had been diagnosed with pneumonia days earlier.

In other words, the claim of allergies was a big fat lie. That prompted Brazile to contemplate starting the process of replacing Clinton, writing in her book that the campaign also was “anemic” and had “the odor of failure.” She says she considered numerous tickets to replace Clinton and Sen. Tim Kane, and decided that Biden and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) would be the best.

It’s not clear how long she deliberated or how many people she talked to, but Brazile writes that Biden called her on Sept. 12. In the end, she says, she made no move because she couldn’t disappoint Clinton’s supporters.

Her book is called “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House,” and it’s got lots of other juicy bits, including evidence that the party rigged the primaries to help Clinton beat Sanders and that Clinton possibly broke federal campaign finance laws by scooping money donated by big donors to state parties, far in excess of individual federal limits.

Brazile also writes that the Clinton team treated her like “a slave,” and she accuses its male hierarchy of sexism.

As is their wont, the Clinton campaign is attacking Brazile, saying she fabricated incidents just to sell books. But curiously, the candidate herself has been silent.

Presidential campaigns, of course, are grueling, dynamic events and infighting is common. But what is extraordinary here is the fact that none of the huge moments Brazile recounts has been reported before.

That would matter less if the media humbly acknowledged it missed major stories that could have rocked the race, but that’s apparently expecting too much from news organizations that have forfeited their public trust. Nothing has changed, with the anti-Trump bias firmly intact.

Still, Brazile’s book is timely, with today the anniversary of Trump’s smashing upset. It is a reminder that, thankfully, voters weren’t fooled by the media conspiracy to hide the truth.

That video was part of the following article:

So if no other Democratic candidate other than Obama could have beaten Trump in 2016, what do the Democrats propose to do in 2020?

I also found this one at Ace of Spades.

It was from a few days ago. I must have opened the browser window tab and forgot about it:

I am glad that I didn't close the page without looking at it first. :)

How about proposition a bunch of Lefty psychologists and psychiatrists to go on CNN and pretend to diagnose Trump and then call for the 25th Amendment?

-or-

How about push the "obstruction of justice" angle because Trump fired Comey to keep his from finding out the Russiagate thing was bullshit?

-or-

Find some hack to write a book about every malcontent who Trump fired?

-or-

Try to drive Trump insane with IXth District court challenges to everything he does?
