Always a pleasure to go on with Jeff Nyquist and Allan Dos Santos on "Update Brazil."

In this, the 38th show, we puzzle through the conventions, the candidates -- and Putin.    







A British court has ruled against Vladimir Bukovsky's libel suit against the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

In brief (background here, verdict here, Bukovsky statement below), Bukovsky sued the CPS for libel over its public announcement in May 2015 that he was to be prosecuted for "making" five images of child pornography. This term of legal art, Bukovsky argued logically, implies to the average person that he was to be prosecuted as a child pornographer for "making" five images of child pornography. In fact, the state's criminal case against Bukovsky, which will come to court in December, will turn on whether Bukovsky possesed five mages of child pornography on his laptop -- which was very mysteriously seized by British authorities in October 2014.

Note: Out of all of the many, many journalists, commentators, and political professionals, from neocon to liberal, currently ventilating the storyline that Donald Trump is Putin's Man and Hillary Clinton is Gen. MacArthur (discussed here), none that I know of has expressed the slightest interest or concern about an alarming case of international importance that has the earmarks of a realtime Russian operation against a fearless critic of the Putin regime. 

I refer to the plight of the fearless critic of Soviet and Russian dictatorship, Vladimir Bukovsky, currently fighting to save his heroic reputation in a legal struggle that many believe has its origins in Moscow.

Here is a run-down on the great Bukovsky's case from May: "Bukovsky vs. the British Crown -- vs. the Kremlin?"

Think the Soviets were the only ones to invert reality?

"The Post-Constitutional Election, Part 24," is here. 

The world has left merely-bonkers behind when Clinton, Inc., the most corrupt, corruptible and corrupted political duo in modern history, is held up as the nation's bulwark against the Russian Bear; when Donald Trump, the man who seeks to save US sovereignty, the military, the 2nd Amendment and to stop Muslim immigration is smeared as "a Russian stooge." 

Welcome to the Democrats'...

The Post-Constitutional Election, Part 23 is here.

--

The following is not a joke -- at least not in the sense of being meant as something other than deadly serious.  

It is "news analysis" by Julia Preston of the New York Times (via VDare.com).

Headline: "For Trump, an America That Is Not a Nation of Nations." 

The story concerns Trump's...

"The Post-Costitutional Election: Part 22" is here.

Watching the GOP convention boo Ted Cruz off the stage last night for failing to endorse Donald Trump was transfixing spectacle for all of the reasons that hundreds of delegates gave voice to. These begin with Cruz's solemn pledge on that same stage last summer to support the eventual GOP nominee, and end in the ghastly specter of a Hillary Clinton administration, whose first 100 days, she has vowed, would include amnesty for twenty, thirty million illegal aliens -- just the beginning of Endgame, USA.

Richard Viguerie says it all in a piece excoriating Cruz under the headline "Ted Cruz Committed Suicide on National Television."

When Babu Omowale of the People's New Black Panther Party told Aaron Klein Investigative Radio that his goal was a separate "Black Nation" comprised of five southern states -- Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina -- whether he knew it or not, he was echoing old Moscow policy. Such policy was set forth, for example, by the Comintern in 1930 and trumpeted by the Communist Party USA, as seen in the 1932 campaign...

The renowned journalist Sydney Schanberg has died. He was 82. 

The New York Times reports:

Sydney H. Schanberg, a correspondent for The New York Times who won a Pulitzer Prize for covering Cambodia’s fall to the Khmer Rouge in 1975 and inspired the film “The Killing Fields” with the story of his Cambodian colleague’s survival during the genocide of millions, died on Saturday in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. He was 82.

His death was confirmed by Charles Kaiser, a friend and former Times reporter, who said Mr. Schanberg had a heart attack on Tuesday.

A restive, intense, Harvard-educated newspaperman with bulldog tenacity, Mr. Schanberg was a nearly ideal foreign correspondent:...

In The State and Revolution, V. I. Lenin elaborates on Marx's demonic ravings about a violent revolution to create a state of "armed workers" that will itself "begin to wither away." Madness. Beginning with the first Bolshevik regime in the Soviet Union under Lenin, all such revolutions have only created monstrous dictatorships, which, far from withering away, have slaughtered millions and millions of their own and other peoples all over Planet Earth.

Did five more die in Dallas last night? 

Lenin saw police as the front line of the enemy -- the enemy, of course, being existing society, which had to be destroyed.

...at a certain stage in the development of democracy, it first welds together the class that wages a revolutionary struggle against capitalism -- the proletariat -- and enables...

It's one thing to look back on 7/7/2005 and remember the jihad assault on the heart of a great city that caused the murders of 52 innocents, the shattering of peace and safety, leaving unbowed the British determination to commit suicide by "multiculturalism" -- something I have more recently come to understand as nation-murder by the state.)

But how have things been going since?

From May 2012:

"Liberty Lost"  

Back in 2001, Britain’s political parties signed a fantastic pledge. They agreed to say nothing to “stir up racial or religious hatred, or lead to prejudice on grounds...

After a band of jihadis brought terror to the heart of the London on 7/72005 -- winning trips to Islamic paradise, according to Allah's law -- I wrote the following column. I am not at all happy to say it remains topical.

"Burnt Offerings on the Altar of Multiculturalism"  

Only one faith on Earth may be more messianic than Islam: multiculturalism.

Without it -- without its fanatics who believe all civilizations are the same -- the engine that projects Islam into the unprotected heart of Western civilization would stall and fail. It's as simple as that. To live among the believers -- the multiculturalists -- is to watch the assault, the jihad, take place un-repulsed by our suicidal societies. These societies are not doomed to submit; rather, they are eager to do so in the name of a masochistic brand of tolerance that, short of drastic measures, is surely terminal.

Of course, "FBI Director" Comey will not recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton. But that is not what is worst about this latest wretched day in American history. 

What child, what babe, what fuzzy bunny ever expected that he would? Who among us examined the facts of the case as they emerged and rested assured that Justice would be done -- that is, done blindly, with no special-case, extra-stretchy, wink-wink regard for the Clintons?

One law for thee and me and one law for the Clintons and ilk, and who doesn't know it. That is the greatest offense, and it's nothing new. Just think "Banana Republic." Just think Soviet regime -- but please, spare us the "American exceptionalism." Even if the strong man who comes to mind wears a uniform, not a blinding pants suit, much is the same.  

Once upon a time this was shocking -- I do remember being devastated...

Mickey Rooney in Ah, Wilderness, the excellent 1935 movie version of the Eugene O'Neill play by the same name.

--

Once and for about 200 years, the biggest danger on the Fourth of July was that the braver, wilder, dumber, dearest boys (yet untamed and "focused" by Ritalin doping) might get hold of some M-80s -- a quarter stick of dynamite, so the lore went -- and blow a finger off.

Which could be pretty awful; but today ... I don't have to draw a picture. Suffice it to say, it is now a core part of US Indepedence Day celebrations for federal, state and local authorities to be on highest alert for an Islamic bomb; for "First Responders" to be at the ready with stretchers, turnicots, oxygen tanks, in case random Muslims successfully execute Koran-holy jihad, and, then, they believe, find Allah's highest reward for killing infidels in Islamic paradise, an orgiastic "heaven" with 72 underage...

I was looking for something and found these:

January 15, 2011: Two More Americans Killed by the Great Society Abroad 

Just as the Great Society didn't work in our own country on our own people, the Great Society Abroad doesn't work on alien peoples in foreign cultures, either. It didn't work in Vietnam, as discussed here by the late Peter Braestrup, and it doesn't work in Iraq or Afghanistan. This means that it's not a military defeat that faces us on what I wish were imminent withdrawal from the umma (oh, happy day, and good riddance), but rather another costly validation of the fact that social engineering doesn't work, even with guns.

Back in the fall of 2010, the question was, what was up with FBI outreach to known-Hamas-op Kifah Mustapha? Everybody at a Washington intelligence conference this week told me to ask the FBI. So I did.

I wrote the following column about their answers:

"They Call It Intelligence" October 7, 2010

Reading Patrick Poole's splashy coverage of the FBI's VIP treatment of Kifah Mustapha -- a known Hamas operative and unindicted co-conspirator in the landmark Holy Land Foundation terror financing trial -- will make your head spin with this dizzying question:

How could the same officials charged with securing the nation against the very terrorism Mustapha's activities supported (as laid out in court documents filed by federal investigators) have possibly invited him into the top-secret National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) and the FBI's training center at Quantico during a six-week "Citizen's Academy" hosted by the FBI as "outreach" to the Muslim community?

"The plugs had to...

Watching Sen. Cruz question DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson about the absence of the word, "jihad," the enemy threat doctrine of our "homeland's" most lethal enemy, in the latest government security and strategy documents, I am struck anew by how very long this official effort to suppress the facts about Islam (not, not, not "Radicalislam") has been going on -- throughout the Obama administration, of course, but long before it began. This battle of suppression was already being waged when on September 17, 2001 President George W. Bush told the nation, "Islam is peace." Soon he would send armies into that Islamic world of peace to do battle, wholly ignorant of Islamic war, or jihad.

All these years later, the campaign is still a success -- if, that is, the point is to protect Islam, not the "homeland" from Islamic attack.

When it comes to Big Lies about Islam, nothing much has changed except...
