NYPD

http://www.aol.com/article/2014/12/19/nypd-fumes-over-lack-of-support-from-mayor-de-blasio-in-wake-of-eric-garner-grand-jury/21118342/

Mayor de Blasio has made a number of statements in recent months that were not supportive of the New York Police Department.  He has met with demonstrators, many of whom have been violent, and even attacked police officers.

The mayor is anti-police and has no idea how police work is supposed to be done.  He wants every contact to be perfect and for no one to be hurt, despite the fact that this is the real world where such idealism is impossible.

When police are at work they are always in danger.  In the last 30 years police have improved their tactics and training and fewer and fewer people are being killed by police.  Yet people like Mayor de Blasio behave as if the police are just crazed killers looking for someone to kill.  Now two police officers were murdered in cold blood by one of these protesters.  The mayor should resign.  I am generally opposed to public employee strikes, but perhaps NYPD needs to take a day off until the mayor resigns; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Cuba

President Obama is trying to normalize relations between the United States and Cuba.  He told us that he was going to have the most transparent administration ever.  He conducted negotiations with Cuba in secret for over a year.

There was no free and open discussion about the need or desirability of opening up trade and travel to Cuba.  There were no news conferences with the President with the press asking him about our relationship with Cuba and the advisability of changing that decision.

This administration has frequently said one thing and then done something else.  President Obama made many promises that he has failed to keep.  He has forced this change in status with Cuba without any bipartisan support.  I have seen no advantage to the United States or to the people of Cuba in this agreement.  Another mistake by our president; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Radical Jihad

A Muslim man with previous ties to radical Islamic groups took hostages and then murdered two of them before police killed him.  He posted messages and a flag of a radical Muslim group. The Australian police said they have no idea what his motive might be for this crime.

How foolish this is to claim no idea what his motive might be in this case.  Just as American police and politicians said they had no idea about the motive of the DC Snipers or the attack at Ft. Hood.  In each case, it was radical Islam that was the motive.

At every opportunity the media, the police, the politicians act as if they never heard of jihad.  They act like it can't happen here, so it won't happen here, it did not happen here; even when it does happen here.  We have to start recognizing what evil radical Islam does and stop making excuses for it; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No New Sex

http://www.gopusa.com/news/2014/12/03/maine-court-orders-school-district-to-pay-transgender-student-75k/?subscriber=1

A poor confused little boy thinks he is a girl.  He has been wearing his clothing like a girl and has been wearing girls clothing.  He goes to school and wants to use the girls restrooms, but the school does not think that is appropriate.  They have been allowing him to use the faculty restrooms.

Some lawyer decided that the little boy is being discriminated against.  There were activists who said this also.  There are many sexually confused people who need counseling and sympathy.  They don't need people to buy into their illness.

Many in society have decided that we no longer determine sex by biology, but rather by our feelings.  This is a perversion of nature.  We used to forbid this type of behavior but now too often activist judges pretend that boys are girls and women are men.  You cannot change your sex; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Indian Nuclear Weapons


In international politics nothing happens without a reaction from someone.  The United States has allowed itself to fall behind in the development and production and deployment of nuclear weapons.  We have allowed our aircraft carriers to be scrapped without replacements.  

We claim to be good allies, but then we run from Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan once we get tired of them, without victory.  India is seeing this and is worried about unrest in nuclear Pakistan, and the rise of Communist China.  As a result, India is working on deploying their own triad of nuclear weapons.

The United States is financing the rise of Communist China by buying all sorts of products from China and selling them almost nothing in comparison.  They are using all this money to build a massive military force to threaten and subdue their neighbors.  We continue to export our jobs to them and to pretend nothing bad is happening.  The Indians know better; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Torture

 There has been much hand wringing about "torture" being used by the United States against terrorists.  The first thing to remember is that water boarding was not legally considered torture.  If it's not torture, then no one is being tortured.  Even if it is uncomfortable, unkind, ill-mannered, or rude, if the judges and attorneys say it's not legally torture, than it's not torture.

Non-citizens don't have the same rights as citizens.  To enjoy the protection of the Constitution you must be a citizen of this nation.  That's the greatest value of being a citizen, is the protections and rights recognized as belonging to citizens.  Illegal combatants don't have the same rights as legal combatants.  That's to encourage combatants to wear uniforms and obey certain other rules of warfare.
 
Non-citizens who are illegal combatants don't have the protections of either the Constitution nor the Geneva Conventions. I choose not to cede those protections to people to whom they don't apply; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Eco Terrorism is Still Terrorism

http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2014/12/11/370125769/greenpeace-apologizes-for-stunt-at-perus-sacred-nazca-lines

Self-indulgent, self-important first world people go to Peru and tresspass, damage historic and important arechologic sites and think they can get off with just an apology?  I think they should be given massive fines to pay for better security for the site and for restoration of the site.

They also need to go to jail so they can have some time for reflection on what they have done.  You can't just go to another country and violate their laws and despoil their heritage just because you want to make a statement.

We have more ways to communicate with one another than ever in history and these fools from Greenpeace, who think they are above the law, go and violate the law to send a message.  The terrorists on 9/11 wanted to send a message too.  That did not go well for them either; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
