In Europe and America
There’s a growing feeling of hysteria
Conditioned to respond to all the threats
In the rhetorical speeches of the Soviets

Mr. Khrushchev said we will bury you
I don’t subscribe to this point of view
It would be such an ignorant thing to do
If the Russians love their children too

How can I save my little boy
From Oppenheimer's deadly toy
There is no monopoly of common sense
On either side of the political fence

We share the same biology
Regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

There is no historical precedent
To put the words in the mouth of the president
There’s no such thing as a winnable war
It’s a lie we don’t believe anymore

Mr. Reagan says we will protect you
I don’t subscribe to this point of view
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

Shall We Fight Them All?

Shall We Fight Them All?

By Patrick Buchanan
Information Clearing House
August 8, 2017

Kim Jong Un tested an ICBM of sufficient range to hit the U.S.
mainland.

He is now working on its accuracy, and a nuclear warhead small
enough to fit atop that missile that can survive re-entry.

Unless we believe Kim is a suicidal madman, his goal seems clear.

He wants what every nuclear power wants — the ability to strike
his enemy's homeland with horrific impact, in order to deter that
enemy.

Kim wants his regime recognized and respected, and the U.S.,
which carpet-bombed the North from 1950-1953, out of Korea.

Where does this leave us?

Says Cliff Kupchan of the Eurasia Group, "The U.S. is on the verge
of a binary choice: either accept North Korea into the nuclear club
or conduct a military strike that would entail enormous civilian
casualties."

A time for truth.

U.S. sanctions on North Korea, like those voted for by Congress
last week, are not going to stop Kim from acquiring ICBMs. He
is too close to the goal line.

And any pre-emptive strike on the North could trigger a
counterattack on Seoul by massed artillery on the DMZ,
leaving tens of thousands of South Koreans dead, alongside
U.S. soldiers and their dependents.

We could be in an all-out war to the finish with the North,
a war the American people do not want to fight.

Saturday, President Trump tweeted out his frustration over China's
failure to pull our chestnuts out of the fire: "They do NOTHING for
us with North Korea, just talk. We will no longer allow this to
continue. China could easily solve this problem."

Sunday, U.S. B-1B bombers flew over Korea and the Pacific air
commander Gen. Terrence J. O'Shaughnessy warned his units were
ready to hit North Korea with "rapid, lethal, and overwhelming
force."

Yet, also Sunday, Xi Jinping reviewed a huge parade of tanks,
planes, troops and missiles as Chinese officials mocked Trump
as a "greenhorn President" and "spoiled child" who is running
a bluff against North Korea.

Is he? We shall soon see.

According to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Trump vowed
Monday he would take "all necessary measures" to protect U.S.
allies. And U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley bristled, "The time for
talk is over."

Are we headed for a military showdown and war with the North?
The markets, hitting records again Monday, don't seem to think so.

But North Korea is not the only potential adversary
with whom our relations are rapidly deteriorating.

After Congress voted overwhelmingly for new sanctions on Russia
last week and Trump agreed to sign the bill that strips him of
authority to lift the sanctions without Hill approval, Russia
abandoned its hopes for a rapprochement with Trump's America.

Sunday, Putin ordered U.S. embassy and consulate staff cut by
755 positions.

The Second Cold War, begun when we moved NATO to Russia's
borders and helped dump over a pro-Russian regime in Kiev, is
getting colder.

Expect Moscow to reciprocate Congress' hostility when we ask
for her assistance in Syria and with North Korea.

Last week's sanctions bill also hit Iran after it tested a rocket
to put a satellite in orbit, though the nuclear deal forbids only
the testing of ballistic missiles that can carry nuclear warheads.

Defiant, Iranians say their missile tests will continue.

Recent days have also seen U.S. warships and Iranian patrol boats in
close proximity, with the U.S. ships firing flares and warning shots.

Our planes and ships have also, with increasingly frequency, come
to close quarters with Russian and Chinese ships and planes in the
Baltic and South China seas.

While wary of a war with North Korea, Washington seems to be
salivating for a war with Iran.

Indeed, Trump's threat to declare Iran in violation of the nuclear
arms deal suggests a confrontation is coming.

One wonders: If Congress is hell-bent on confronting the evil that
is Iran, why does it not cancel Iran's purchases and options to buy
the 140 planes the mullahs have ordered from Boeing?

Why are we selling U.S. airliners to the "world's greatest
state sponsor of terror"?

Let Airbus take the blood money.

Apparently, U.S. wars in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen
and Somalia are insufficient to satiate our War Party.

Now it wants us to lead the Sunnis of the Middle East in taking
down the Shiites, who are dominant in Iran, Iraq, Syria and
South Lebanon, and are a majority in Bahrain and the oil-
producing regions of Saudi Arabia.

The U.S. military has its work cut out for it.

President Trump may need those transgender troops.

Among the reasons Trump routed his Republican rivals in 2016 is
that he seemed to share an American desire to look homeward.

Yet, today, our relations with China and Russia are as bad as they
have been in decades, while there is open talk of war with Iran and
North Korea.

Was this what America voted for, or is this what America voted
against?

Empire’s Day of Reckoning

Empire’s Day of Reckoning

By John Rohn Hall
Dissident Voice
August 4, 2017

Dawn. Another day amidst the crumbling walls of Empire.

Mired in the middle of its Misinformation Machine.

Sharing fouled air with mindless, misguided, huddled masses.

Electronically hypnotized zombies, grossly overfed on dead flesh
and chemicals, arteries clogged, welcome mats for every known
disease.

Bodies pierced in each available spot, covered head to toe with
inky, ill-conceived epidermal etchings, bizarre, flowing rainbow
locks, fluorescent-painted lips and nails, sewn-on eyebrows, glazed,
hopeless, expressionless, but highly decorated young faces, facing
meaningless futures.

Pawn shops, porn shops, gun shops.

Temporary solace from creeping moral and financial decay.

Big box stores and shopping malls, once prosperous,
now homes for roaches, rats, pigeons, and echoes.

Empty of merchandise, void of jobs.

Bridges crumbling, highways potholed and cracked.

Once-buzzing factories filled with cobwebs and despair.

Desperados, stealing what they can, selling drugs to equally
unfortunate contemporaries, trying only to survive, meeting with
increasing violence from burgeoning armies of law enforcement.

Flimsy, tin homes on wheels or crowded tenement apartments
for the fortunate.

Shelter under bridges, in arroyos, in parks for the less.

And still the flags fly. And still allegiance is pledged.

Sleepwalking through The American Dream, still believing the lies,
counting on the lies, clinging to the lies like their lives depend upon
it.

Empire’s Misinformation Machine knows the drill.

Well learned from blood brother Adolph: “If you tell a big enough
lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”

Ultimate perfection of Fake News.

Still believing ’twas The U.S.A. saved the world from the tyranny
of fascism in W.W.II.

Knowing nothing of the biochemical slaughter which decimated
Korea, and carried on into Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos.

Of course, the Moon Landings were real!…saw it on CBS.

There was no conspiracy behind the assassinations of 3 Kennedys,
King, X, Evers, Wellstone, Lennon, and oh-so many others…solitary
deranged assassins or freak accidents all.

A list of wars longer than a Summer day in Nome, Alaska.

All fought for purely humanitarian reasons.

Purely.

Or perhaps pure crude.

Terrorism has long stalked the exceptional people
and their exceptional country.

Let’s not go back too far, nor belabor the subject.

Damn that Tim McVeigh and his fertilizer bomb in Oklahoma City!

Ha! A bomb that blew in only one direction. Brilliant!

Two attacks on The World Trade Center.

Second time a charm.

No chance of malfeasance or misinformation there.

Too perfect.

Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, two of earth’s
most majestic structures, crashing at the speed of Newton’s
apple.

A 757 hits The Pentagon and leaves a hole barely big enough
to fly a Cessna 172 through.

Pure magic, but so believable.

Brian Williams told me so, and it was widely verified on ALL
the major networks.

Boston Marathon Mega-Whopper.

Zika! Zika! Zika!

Make sure you worry your little head about it.

Noonday sun illuminates a worldwide occupation.

A thousand military bases across the globe.

Stealth presence in every country situated upon coveted resources.

High level bribery, blackmail, assassination, coup d’etat, color
revolution, regime change, economic warfare, bombs, bullets,
missiles, whatever it takes to take and maintain control.

Worldwide domination at all cost, and life is cheap at best.

Poor lives nothing but liabilities.

Kill ’em all and let some imaginary god sort ’em out.

A million here, a million there.

Contrived and controlled mayhem in the streets of Venezuela.

Did Maduro flunk History 101?

Does he believe that the world’s biggest oil reserves will be allowed
to benefit poor people?

The Opium Wars worked so well in China, the CIA took over the
show, and is now the man to see for a good cheap high…anywhere
on earth.

Chemical Warfare on home turf, with a third of Empire’s subjects
living in opioid la-la-land…drugged sheeple are easily herded.

Drugged, delusional, huddled masses of sheeple.

Blue sheeple, red sheeple, herded into the Big Top seats.

Behold The Donald on the high wire, and Hillary the Tattooed Lady.

He’s an inappropriate thrill a second, and she’s got every corporate
logo on earth etched into her blotchy skin.

It’s the Greatest Show on Earth.

The illusion of choice.

Watch whichever freak you choose.

Choose whichever freak you watch.

The outcome is predetermined.

Nothing will change.

Twilight Zone Election/Selection Fiasco.

Hillary’s out, Donald’s in.

So what?

False flags continue to fly.

The great upward transfer of wealth continues.

Wars rage unabated.

The show must go on.

And still the flags fly, and still allegiance is pledged.

Dazed, disoriented, and distraught in Empire’s twilight.

Days must end, beings must die, empires must perish.

It is written.

Xi of China has a Heavenly Mandate to serve his people,
and his country will end poverty by 2020.

Empire’s destitution grows like a giant noxious weed.

Putin of Russia has a nearly 90% approval rating among
his populace.

Show of hands please!…who loves The Donald?

North Korea’s Kim Jong-un thumbs his nose at Empire,
develops weaponry enough to discourage the assassins.

Guess he doesn’t want to follow in the footsteps of Allende,
Hussein, Gaddafi, Chavez.

And Duterte of The Philippines continues to taunt Empire,
showing the world his country’s bloody history of oppression
under its thumb.

Like school playground bullies, empires rule by fear.

Now the other children tire of the abuse.

Whispers are heard. Alliances are formed.

The bully’s closest allies now defect to the insurgency.

The oppressor stands alone.

Powerless and surrounded.

The other children move closer.

Will they show mercy, or beat the ruffian to a bloody pulp?

In the soft glow of twilight, a Russian SU-35 flies swiftly,
vertically, nearly out of sight, into the heavens.

An aerial Bolshoi Ballet ensues.

Hovering. Flipping. Spinning like a child’s top.

Defying gravity and maneuvering with dreamlike choreography.

Powerful jet engines humming a swan song for the playground
bully.

There is a name for this ballet: Empire’s Twilight.

Empire looks on, grudgingly understanding that its day has come
to an end.

You In Humanity

You In Humanity

By Manuel Garcia Jr.
Dissident Voice
July 31, 2017

The fundamental flaw in human society is a lack of moral character.

While certainly there are many people who have good moral
character, they are too few to dominate the aggregate behavior
of homo sapiens.

Selfishness dominates.

It issues many lies to distract and manipulate human consciousness
to its advantage.

Lies are the sound and literature of theft from the public good.

Selfishness justifies itself with the excuses of “belief” and “moral
principles,” which are attempted disguises for its denial of truth.

People believe what they want to believe; facts don’t matter.

Religions in particular, and often government systems, are used
as excuses – whether labeled as “salvation” and “righteousness”
or “law” and “order” – to exclude, and to inflict cruelty on the
excluded.

How are we to eliminate this flaw in human society?

Good character is not something that can be compelled.

The only way to improve aggregate human character is for the
individual to commit to maintaining and improving his and her
own.

Beyond the personal benefit of gaining a justifiable self-regard,
the good of such a personal commitment can diffuse into society
by the effect of the individual’s example on the people he and she
interacts with, and perhaps on some of the more distant observers.

Compulsion is the obsession of bigots who gain political power
and seek to use government as a tool to force others to fit into
the framework of their bigotry.

The commitment to base conscious action on good character,
regardless of the corrupting pressures from society, must be a
free choice, a declaration of independence, if it is to have any
reality at all.

You, the individual, have to keep a balance between judgment
and forgiveness of yourself so your mistakes and lapses can be
recovered as lessons and improvements, and so you can maintain
the psychological health needed to conduct a happy and fulfilling
life.

The specifics of what you do are always influenced and constrained
by the environments and conditions you find yourself in, and the
events you have to live through, but the manner in which you
address the challenges of living comes exclusively from your moral
character; and that is what you have control over in this world.

"We have, in this country, one of the most corrupt institutions the
world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board. This
evil institution has impoverished the people of the United States
and has practically bankrupted our government. It has done this
through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control
it." -- Congressman Louis T. McFadden

"History records that the money changers have used every form
of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain
their control over governments by controlling money and it's
issuance." -- President James Madison

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our
liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a
monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance.
The issuing power (of money) should be taken away from the
banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs."
-- President Thomas Jefferson

"A great industrial nation is controlled by it's system of credit.
Our system of credit is concentrated in the hands of a few men.
We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most
completely controlled and dominated governments in the world--
no longer a government of free opinion, no longer a government
by conviction and vote of the majority, but a government by the
opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men."
-- President Woodrow Wilson

"The Federal Reserve System in nothing more than legalized
counterfeiting." -- Congressman Ron Paul

"We are completely dependant on the commercial banks. Someone
has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation, cash or credit. If
the banks create ample synthetic money we are prosperous; if not,
we starve. We are absolutely without a permanent money system...
It is the most important subject intelligent persons can investigate
and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization
may collapse unless it becomes widely understood and the defects
remedied very soon." -- Robert H. Hamphill

"To expose a $15 Trillion dollar ripoff of the American people by
the stockholders of the 1000 largest corporations over the last
100 years will be a tall order of business." -- Buckminster Fuller

"I have never seen more Senators express discontent with their
jobs....I think the major cause is that, deep down in our hearts,
we have been accomplices in doing something terrible and
unforgivable to our wonderful country. Deep down in our heart,
we know that we have given our children a legacy of bankruptcy.
We have defrauded our country to get ourselves elected."
-- Senator John Danforth

"It is well that the people of the nation do not understand
our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe
there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning."

July 25, 2017

On September 10, 2001 Donald Rumsfeld held a press conference
to state that the Pentagon was missing more than, "$2.3 Trillion
Dollars" but the next day something happened and everybody
forgot all about this.

"September 11, 2001 seems destined to be the watershed event of
our lives and the greatest test for our democracy in our lifetimes.
The evidence of government complicity in the lead-up to the events
the failure to respond during the event, and the astounding lack of
any meaningful investigation afterwards, as well as the ignoring of
evidence turned up by others that renders the official explanation
impossible, may signal the end of the American experiment. It has
been used to justify all manners of measures to legalize repression
at home and as a pretext for behaving as an aggressive empire
abroad. Until we demand an independent, honest, and thorough
investigation and accountability for those whose action and inaction
led to those events and the cover-up, our republic and our
Constitution remain in the gravest danger." - Lieutenant Colonel
Shelton F. Lankford, US Marine Corps

"I am not a conspiracy theorist. I'm an Air Force Pilot. And based on
my experience the story we have been told about 9/11 doesn't add
up." - Lieutenant Colonel David Gapp, US Air Force

"I look at the hole in the Pentagon, and when I look at the size of
an airplane that was supposed to have hit the Pentagon, I said,
the plane does not fit in that hole. So what did hit the Pentagon?
9/11 was a fraud." - Major General Albert Newton Stubblebine III,
United States Army

"I had long conversation with contacts at The Army War College
and the headquarters of the Marine Corps and I've made it absolutely
clear in both cases that it is 100% certain that 9/11 was a Mossad
operation, period. The Zionist are playing this as an all-or-nothing
exercise. If they lose this one they're done." - Dr. Alan Sabrosky,
US Army War College

"The US government made a decision not to tell the truth about
9/11." - John Framer Jr., Senior Counsel 9/11 Commision

Inclosing on September 11, 2001 two very, very, sad things
happened.

3000 Americans died and 1.8 billion Muslims were labeled as
terrorist.

9/11 was an, "Inside Job".....

The Paradox of Tolerance

The Paradox of Tolerance

Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance.
If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant,
if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the
onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed,
and tolerance with them. ~ Karl R. Popper

By Michael Mendis
BigThink.com
July 19, 2017

Tolerance is a self-contradictory principle.

It is self-contradictory because it is reflexive.

That is, as a principle it acts upon itself, or it includes itself
in its scope.

As a principle, tolerance dictates that we must be tolerant
of everything.

We cannot pick and choose what we will tolerate and what
we will not.

If this is so, then tolerance requires us to tolerate even intolerance.

Thus, if somebody is preaching or practising intolerance,
the tolerant person cannot, in principle, speak out against
what the intolerant person is doing, since speaking out against
intolerance would itself be an act of intolerance.

In other words, the principle of tolerance requires us to grant
intolerant people the right to be intolerant.

This is clearly self-contradictory, since tolerance cannot condone
what it specifically sets out to be against (i.e., intolerance), but
it nevertheless requires itself, logically, to do just that.

Tolerance as a principle, then, is clearly illogical, and therefore
irrational.

It is much more logical and rational to espouse intolerance, for then
one does not get entangled in any contradictions—self or otherwise.

Intolerance as a principle does not require us to be consistently and
universally intolerant: it affords us the option of being tolerant if
we so choose, and intolerant whenever it pleases us to be so.

This is straightforward and clear-cut, and one has no difficulty
following this principle in living one's life.

The intolerant person's simple motto is: "I like the things I like and I
hate the things I hate, and I will hate the people who like the things
I hate, and I will make that hate known to them in no uncertain
terms."

What could be easier?

It's black and white, like the world George W. Bush inhabits. "If you
are not with me, you are against me, and so you are my enemy, and
I will treat you as such."

George W. Bush practised this philosophy to perfection during his
presidency, rewarding those who supported him and, "punishing"
those who didn't.

No moral dilemmas for him and for others like him who like their
world in black and white rather than in shades of grey.

And yet, …

We have the intuitive sense (beyond what the rational mind tells
us) that there is something wrong with this reasoning, logical and
rational though it is.

Intolerance, we have learned from experience, does not work very
well in practice.

Religious wars, witch hunts (ancient and modern), persecution
(political, religious, and social)—these are all the luscious fruits of
intolerance, fruits whose flavours we would rather not have tasted.

Mahatma Gandhi put it perfectly when he said: "An eye for an eye
ends up making the whole world blind."

We might say: Intolerance breeds intolerance in a downward spiral.

One has only to look at George W. Bush's failed presidency to see
the truth of this.

Oddly enough, tolerance does not always breed tolerance, but it
often does, and this is what recommends it to us as the superior
of the two principles.

Game theory tells us that antagonism towards one's opponents
is not usually a winning strategy.

John Nash (the real-life mathematician on whom the movie
A Beautiful Mind was based) has shown that being aware of and
accepting (we could say "tolerating") the play strategies of one's
opponents is essential to winning.

A "Nash equilibrium" is a situation in which each player's strategy
is an optimal response to the play strategies of the other players.

There is no room for "selfishness" or George-Bush-style "go-it-alone"
bravado here.

While tolerance and intolerance are not a exact, "game" the
principles of Game Theory can be applied in a broad way to
understanding why tolerance is the superior of the two principles.

If you tolerate the opinions of those you disagree with,
the chances are greater that they will tolerate your opinions.

And if everyone held to the principle of tolerance, then we wouldn't
even need to worry about chances being greater or less: we would
know right off the bat that others will indeed tolerate our opinions.

In this climate of tolerance, there would be a lower risk of conflict,
and instead of expending our energy fighting each other, we could
put it to more productive ends.

What the paradox of tolerance teaches us is that rationality is not
always in lock step with practicality.

The rational thing to do is not always the best thing to do,
the most practical thing to do, the right thing to do.

I am not speaking here of the morally right thing to do, but rather,
the right thing in terms of common sense.

It should be noted that common sense is not always rational.

Philosophers often dismiss common sense precisely because of this.

But if common sense had prevailed, world history might have run
a very different course.

So what shall we say of tolerance?

Should we be rational and reject it as a guiding principle because
it is self-contradictory and therefore illogical?

Or should we yield to the irrational side of our natures and embrace
tolerance despite the fact that it is self-contradictory and illogical?

I think most people would agree that the latter is the more, "sane"
of the two options.

Arithmetic

Arithmetic

By Carl Sandburg
July 17, 2017

Arithmetic is where numbers fly like pigeons in and out of your
head.

Arithmetic tells you how many you lose or win if you know how
many you had before you lost or won.

Arithmetic is seven eleven all good children go to heaven or five
six bundle of sticks.

Arithmetic is numbers you squeeze from your head to your hand
to your pencil to your paper till you get the answer.

Arithmetic is where the answer is right and everything is nice and
you can look out of the window and see the blue sky or the answer
is wrong and you have to start all over and try again and see how it
comes out this time.

If you take a number and double it and double it again and then
double it a few more times, the number gets bigger and bigger
and goes higher and higher and only arithmetic can tell you what
the number is when you decide to quit doubling.

Arithmetic is where you have to multiply and you carry the
multiplication table in your head and hope you won't lose it.

If you have two animal crackers, one good and one bad, and you
eat one and a striped zebra with streaks all over him eats the other
how many animal crackers will you have if somebody offers you
five, six, seven and you say No, no, no and you say Nay, nay, nay
and you say Nix, nix, nix?

If you ask your mother for one fried egg for breakfast and she gives
you two fried eggs and you eat both of them, who is better in
arithmetic, you or your mother?

Insurrectionary Imagination

Insurrectionary Imagination

By Adbusters
July 15, 2017

On the western edge of France, 4000 acres of wetlands, fields
and forests have become a liberated zone; a vast laboratory of
autonomy where 200 people in 60 different collectives live together
without the state, occupying the land against a new airport project
for the city of Nantes.

Politicians call it, “a territory lost to the republic.”

The local farmers and villagers, activists and naturalists, squatters
and trade unionists, who are part of the growing movement against
the airport and its world, call it the ZAD – The zone to defend.

With its bakeries, pirate radio station, tractor repair workshop,
brewery, banqueting hall, medicinal herb gardens, a rap studio,
dairy, vegetable plots, weekly newspaper, flour mill, library and
even a surrealist lighthouse, the ZAD has become a concrete
experiment in taking back control of everyday life.

In 2012 the French state’s attempt to evict the zone was fiercely
resisted and the police have not set foot there since.

Every time the threats of eviction resurface, over 40,000 people
take part in creative acts of disobedience to defend the zone.

Among the grackles in a half circle on the grass,
Two walked side by side on two legs apiece.

Treetops bent in the wind and bird nest shuddered.
This is why and only why the grackles sat in a half circle.

Seven grackles came at first and sat in the half circle.
Then there were eleven came with two legs apiece and sat in.

They may have been crapshooters full of hope and hot breaths.
They may have been believers in luck, come seven, come eleven.

Don’t Be A Neocon Puppet

Don’t Be A Neocon Puppet

By Patrick J. Buchanan
RINF.com
July 7, 2017

President Donald Trump flew off for his first meeting with Vladimir
Putin — with instructions from our foreign policy elite that he get
into the Russian president’s face over his hacking in the election of
2016.

Hopefully, Trump will ignore these people.

For their record of failure is among the reasons Americans elected
him to the office.

What president, seeking to repair damaged relations with a rival
superpower, would begin by reading from an indictment?

President Eisenhower did not begin his summit with Nikita
Khrushchev by berating him for crushing the Hungarian freedom
fighters in 1956 — a more grievous crime then hacking the emails
of John Podesta.

President Kennedy did not let Russia’s emplacement of missiles in
Cuba in 1962 prevented him from offering an olive branch to
Moscow in his widely praised American University address of June
1963.

President Nixon, in first meeting Leonid Brezhnev, did
not denounce him for extinguishing the Prague Spring.

Were Trump to start his first summit with Putin
by dressing him down, why meet with him at all?

Trump would do better to explore where we can work together,
as in ending Syria’s civil war and averting a new war in Korea.

Moreover, when it comes to interference in the internal politics
of other nations to bring about “regime change,” understandably,
Putin might see himself as more sinned against than sinning.

Should Trump bring up the email hacking in 2016, Putin could ask
him to explain U.S. support for the violent coup d’etat that
overthrew a democratically elected pro-Russian government in
Ukraine, a land with which Russia has been intimately associated
for 1,000 years.

Consider the behavior of post-Cold War America, after Moscow
gave up its empire, pulled all its troops out of Europe, let the
USSR dissolve into 15 nations and held out a hand in friendship.

We gathered all the Warsaw Pact nations and three former Russian
Federation republics into a NATO alliance targeted at Russia.

We put troops, ships and bases into the Baltic on the doorstep
of St. Petersburg.

We bombed Russia’s old ally Serbia for 78 days, forcing it to
surrender its birth province of Kosovo.

Among the failings of America’s post-Cold War foreign policy elites
are hubris, arrogance and an utter absence of that greatest of gifts
that the gods can give us — “to see ourselves as others see us.”

Can we not see why the Russian people, who saw us as friends
in the 1990s, no longer do so, and why Putin, a Russia-First
nationalist, has an 80 percent approval rating on the issue of
standing up for his country?

Looking about the world today, do we really need any more
crises or quarrels?

Do we not have enough on our plate?

As the Buddhist saying goes, “Do not dwell in the past …
concentrate the mind on the present moment.”

Americans are rightly angry that Russia hacked the presidential
election of 2016.

But what was done cannot be undone.

And Putin is not going to return Crimea to Kiev, the annexation of
which was the most popular action of his long tenure as Russian
resident.

As D.C.’s immortal Mayor Marion Barry once said to constituents
appalled by his latest episode of social misconduct: “Get over it!”

We have other fish to fry.

In Syria and Iraq, where the ISIS caliphate is in its death rattle,
Russia and the U.S. both have a vital interest in avoiding any
military collision, and in ending the war.

This probably means the U.S. demand that Syrian President Assad
be removed will have to be shelved.

Consider China.

Asked by Trump to squeeze Pyongyang on its nuclear missile
program, China increased trade with North Korea 37 percent
in the first quarter.

The Chinese are now telling us to stop sailing warships within
13 miles of its militarized islets and reefs in the South China Sea
that they claim belongs to them, and demanding that we cancel
our $1.4 billion arms sale to Taiwan.

Hong Kong’s 7 million people have been told their democratic
rights, secured in Great Britain’s transfer of the island to China,
are no longer guaranteed.

Now China is telling us to capitulate to North Korea’s demand for
an end to U.S. military maneuvers with South Korea and to remove
the THAAD missile system the U.S. has emplaced.

And Beijing is imposing sanctions on South Korea for accepting
the U.S. missile system.

Meanwhile, the dispute with North Korea is going critical.

If Kim Jong Un is as determined as he appears to be to build an
ICBM with a nuclear warhead that can hit Seattle or San Francisco,
we will soon be down to either accepting this or exercising a
military option that could bring nuclear war.

Trump cannot allow this Beltway obsession with Putin to prevent us
from closing, if we can, this breach.

If we do not bring Russia back into the West, where do we think she
will go?

Still I Rise

Still I Rise

By Maya Angelou
June 29, 2017

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
’Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
’Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise

Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise

I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise

Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise

Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.

I rise
I rise
I rise.

Calling My Name

I walk with Earth under my feet

I walk with visions in my eyes

I walk with fire inside me

I walk with Spirits as my guides

When I feel like I can't breathe

I take a walk and I am healed

I'm walking back to the center

I'm walking through the sacred field

I'm walking deeper and deeper

Learning the secrets to the night

I'm looking into the fire

I'm looking past the light

When I feel like I can't breathe

I take a walk and I am healed

I'm walking back to the center

I'm running through the sacred field

I hear them calling my name

Mind Against Mind

Mind Against Mind

By Charlotte Emma Lewis
June 23, 2017

Those that are complacently designed

By the simpering vanities

Of a domesticated world

Rarely find the peace of mind

Of which we all strive

Because their materialistic

Beliefs constrain them

In pools of normality

Drowning them in the pressures of society

And hanging them out to dry

In downloaded photos

That never fade

Our lives are all dictated

By the subconscious influence

Of one another

Thus our souls

Are irrefutably intertwined

Locked together in endless struggle

The Lonewolf

The Lonewolf

By Adbusters
June 19, 2017

I’m a guerilla in an information war, a slow-simmering battle of
memes and counter-memes, ideologies and worldviews.

I’m reprogramming the capitalist algorithm, turning growth into
de-growth, taking back the meaning of “progress” and reinventing
the American Dream.

I’m popping up on the evening news, on billboards,
corporate websites and disrupting the spectacle.

Injecting cognitive dissonance.

Epiphanies around every corner.

Marching in the Streets is not for me.

I’ll do secret things.

Pick my own moment.

Turn a bank window into a work of art.

Nail a manifesto to the doors of the economics departments.

Blackspot an ATM.

Dance on the back of the stock market bull.

A beautiful gesture has its own way of making history.

There Will Be Blood

There Will Be Blood

The Alexandria Shooting and Civil War in America

By Kurt Nimmo
RINF.com
June 16, 2017

The state will exercise it monopoly of violence and terror.

It’s the defining characteristic of the modern state.

The endgame is an authoritarian police and surveillance state.

The shooting at a Republican baseball practice in Virginia shouldn’t
come as a surprise.

It’s the result of months of establishment agitprop.

From Kathy Griffin posing with Trump’s severed head to a Trump
like Julius Caesar killed in Central Park play, the media has fixated
on strife between the two establishment parties.

This isn’t an accident.

It’s designed to keep Americans distracted and at each other’s
throats as the economy slowly implodes and the wars expand
with horrific toll.

The election of Trump provides a unique opportunity to create
partisan battle lines.

Social media is rife with venom and hatred as the alt-left faces
off against the alt-right.

Factions are established and receive support behind the scenes
from George Soros, the Koch Brothers, and the Democrat
“resistance,” a ludicrous moniker cooked up by the Democratic
National Committee under its new chairman Tom Perez.

The DNC announced it will throw a million dollars at its
Summer of Resistance.

This will further widen the political divide.

Polarization is increasingly intense and the establishment
propaganda media is fanning the flames.

Violence is escalating.

Antifa leftists attack Trump supporters and they respond in kind.

Activists are now openly carrying weapons.

We’re in the early stages of an engineered civil war.

Who benefits from this?

The state.

It’s a classic example of problem, reaction, solution.

Create political violence, or exploit that which is already festering,
and then unleash an authoritarian and militarized response.

Last year, a report by a government watchdog group tracked the
weapon expenditures of the federal government and found nearly
a billion and a half dollars in “military-style equipment” purchases
for 67 of its non-military agencies, including the IRS and the EPA.

The federal government is preparing for civil unrest.

The Pentagon is strategizing a response to large-scale civil unrest,
not only in America but around the world.

It began looking into this in 2008 after the engineered financial
crisis.

In 2013, it was reported the Department of Homeland Security
engaged in a massive, covert military buildup.

The DHS has purchased 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition,
enough to sustain an Iraq-sized war for over twenty years.

DHS has also acquired heavily armored tanks, which have
been seen roaming the streets.

The state will exercise it monopoly of violence and terror.

It’s the defining characteristic of the modern state.

The endgame is an authoritarian police and surveillance state.

As the Nazi Hermann Goering knew, the people can always
be brought to the bidding of their leaders as they respond
to political violence.

He said it’s always a simple matter to drag the people along
whether it’s a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament,
or a communist dictatorship.

As an operative for Operation Gladio pointed out, in order to
establish a police state innocent civilians must be attacked and
killed to force the public to turn to the state and demand greater
security.

Now that a so-called progressive, a Bernie Sanders volunteer has
shot up Republicans playing baseball, how long before Congress
introduces yet another draconian law in response?

Now that the political class has been targeted, it probably won’t
take long.

Tyranny At Home

Tyranny At Home

By Fred Reed
Information Clearing House
Friday, June 9, 2017

“The consolidation of the states into one vast empire, sure to
be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain
precursor of ruin which has overwhelmed all that preceded it.”
--Robert E. Lee

The man was perceptive.

Amalgamation of the states under a central government has led to
exactly the effects foreseen by General Lee.

In, say, 1950, to an appreciable though imperfect extent America
resembled a confederacy.

Different regions of the America had little contact with each other,
and almost no influence over one another.

The federal government was small and remote.

Interstates did not exist, nor of course the internet, nor even direct
long-distance telephone dialing.

West Virginia, Alabama, Massachusetts, New York City, Texas,
and California had little in common, but little conflict arose
since for practical purposes they were almost different countries.

They chiefly governed themselves. The proportion of federal
to state law was small.

It is important to note that regional differences were great.

In 1964 in rural Virginia, the boys brought shotguns to school during
deer season. Nobody shot anybody because it wasn’t in the culture.

The culture was uniform, so no one was upset.

It is when cultures are mixed, or one rules another,
that antagonism comes.

Such shotgun freedom would not have worked in New York City
with its variegated and often mutually hostile ethnicities.

Regions differed importantly in degree of freedom, not just in
the freedom of local populations to govern themselves but also
in individual freedom.

It made a large difference in the tenor of life.

If in Texas, rural Virginia, or West Virginia you wanted to build
an addition to your house, you did.

You didn’t need licenses, permits, inspections, union-certified
electricians.

Speed limits? Largely ignored.

Federal requirements for Coast Guard approved flotation devices
on your canoe? What the hell kind of crazy idea was that?

Democracy works better the smaller the group practicing it.

In a town, people can actually understand the questions of the day.

They know what matters to them.

Do we build a new school, or expand the existing one?

Do we want our children to recite the pledge of allegiance,
or don’t we?

Reenact the Battle of Antietam? Sing Christmas carols in the
town square?

We can decide these things. Leave us alone.

States similarly knew what their people wanted and, within
the limits of human frailty, governed accordingly.

Then came the vast empire, the phenomenal increase in the power
and reach of the federal government, which really means the
Northeast Corridor.

The Supreme Court expanded and expanded and expanded the
authority of Washington, New York’s store-front operation.

The federals now decided what could be taught in the schools,
what religious practices could be permitted, what standards
employers could use in hiring, who they had to hire.

The media coalesced into a small number of corporations,
controlled from New York but with national reach.

More recently we have added surveillance of everything
by Washington’s intelligence agencies.

Tyranny at home, said General Lee. Just so.

This could happen only with the consolidation
of the states into one vast empire.

Tyranny comes easily when those seeking it need only corrupt a
single Congress, appoint a single Supreme Court, or control the
departments of one executive branch.

In a confederation of largely self-governing states, those
hungry to domineer would have to suborn fifty congresses.

It could not be done.

State governments are accessible to the governed.

They can be ejected.

They are much more likely to be sympathetic to the desires
of their constituents since they are of the same culture.

Aggressive abroad, said General Lee.

Is this not exactly what we see?

At this moment Washington has the better part of a thousand
military bases around the world, unnecessary except for the
maintenance of empire.

America exists in a state of constant war, bombing Afghanistan,
Pakistan, Syria, Somalia, recently having destroyed Iraq and Libya.

Washington threatens Iran, North Korea, Russia, and China.

Its military moves deeper into Africa.

Washington sanctions Cuba, Russia, North Korea, and Iran,
to no effect.

It constantly tries to dominate other nations,
for example adding to NATO.

None of these wars and little if any of the imperial aggression
interests more than a tiny fraction of the country’s people.

To whom can the war against Afghanistan matter? Libya?

Few people have heard of Montenegro.

Does its membership in NATO or lack of it affect Idaho?

In a confederacy, states would have to approve a war.

Few would unless the United States itself were threatened.

They might well refuse to pay for wars not in their benefit,
or to allow their sons, daughters, and transgenders to be
conscripted.

But with a central government, those benefiting from
war can concentrate money and influence only on that
government.

For example, military industry, Israel, big oil, Wall Street.

Wars might carry the votes of states with arms factories.

Other states would decline.

In principle, the Constitution should have prevented
the hijacking of the military that we now suffer.

As we all should know, and some do, America cannot under the
Constitution go to war without a declaration by Congress, the
last one of which occurred in 1941.

But a single central government can be corrupted more easily
than fifty state governments.

A few billionaires, well-funded lobbies, and the remoteness of
Washington from the common consciousness make controlling the
legislature as easy as buying a pair of shoes.

And thus, just as Marse Bob expected, the federals are out of
control and make war without the least reference to the nation.

If America attacks North Korea, or Russia, or China,
we will read of it the day after.

The central government, and only the central government,
decides.

A few days ago I read that the Pentagon contemplates
sending thousands of additional troops to Afghanistan.

This combines tyranny at home and aggression abroad.

Who wants to send them?

A few neocons in New York, the arms industry, a few generals,
and several senators.

It could not happen in a confederacy.

Will this, as General Lee predicted, prove “the certain precursor
of ruin which has overwhelmed all that preceded it.”? Wait.

The Paris Accord

The Paris Accord

By Jenny Worman
June 5, 2017

Over the past five years U.S. emissions have fallen by 270 million
tons, while China—the No. 1 CO 2 emitter—added 1.1 billion tons.

Yet, China was not required to reduce emissions until 2030 in the
Paris Accord?

The United States, $20 trillion in debt, and having had a $347
Billion dollar trade deficit with China in 2016, would be forced
to pay billions to China to modernize its manufacturing, sending
even more of our jobs and money to them?

That's not very fair is it?

Further, The Paris Accord document is a treaty in international law.

It has 100% of the legal attributes of a treaty.

If you examine the UN website all the reporting on this
accord treats it as a treaty.

Under The US Constitution, treaties must be ratified by
the United States Senate.

Obama claimed to have unilaterally ratified the treaty.

He had no such power to do so.

The United States is NOT legitimately a party to this treaty
to begin with.

Thus, President Trump is not withdrawing from the Paris Accords.

A nation must FIRST be a party before they can withdraw.

President Trump is simply giving the world notice that
this act of Obama acting as a dictator was NOT valid.

The fact that Obama refused to send it to the Senate to get
ratified is all the evidence you need to know that it is a bad
treaty.

If it was good for America, it could and should get ratified
by the Senate.

In all of the hyperbole, the person who acted irresponsibly is the
one who CIRCUMVENTED the Constitution and attempted to impose
international control over this country all by himself.

That person was Obama.

COVFEFE

COVFEFE

By Expotera
June 2, 2017

Earlier this week President Donald J. Trump tweeted the following,
"Despite the negative covfefe".....

According to, "The Marshall Report" Covfefe’ (pronounced “cuv
– fee- fae”) is an Antediluvian term for, “In the end we win.”

It was commonly used by the sons of Adam to rail against the evil
actions of the fallen who had led man astray.

The term gained popularity prior to the great deluge and was rarely
used after the flood subsided. It regained favor around the time
Nimrod was building his tower, after which it was entirely lost in
translation at Babel.

Now beyond, "The Marshall Report" I have not been able to
independently verify whether this is the true definition or not,
but below is a acronym for, "COVFEFE" that not only makes sense,
but also explains what really happened to, "Seth Rich" as well.

Uncommon Valour

Uncommon Valour

By Got Guanxi
May 29, 2017

Soldier of fortune making moves on the battlefield,
Chess checking chances,
Suntzu advances,
As the sun moves and dances.

Creeping in trenches, sleeping in shifts,
Bullets fly overhead as you hope that they'll miss,
Butterflies in the rose fields,
Butchered guys in the poppy fields.

Broken dreams, decimated teams,
Regiments unravelled at the seems,
Unrivalled scenes that you could never believe,
Superhuman movements and medals achieved.

Let go and breath,
Silently amongst violence and tryrants.

No man planned, for no man's land,
The best laid plans lead to mass graves,
Massacres last for days,
It's hard to understand.

Tactics underhand, gas masks steal identies,
You must move fast to counteract the effects of,
Mustard gas and hidden identities,
Popup cemetries, innovative remedies.

Death strikes at any moment,
Yet it's hard to keep focus,
Don't lose your mind,
Mistakes of mankind, repeated in time.

Baby faced freshmen, turn to hard face veterans,
In the spaces of seconds,
Replaced in moments with conscripted kids,
Deplaced from happy homes.

Men never found and no chance to atone,
Warmongers amongst them that soon change there tones,
Railway children leave villages in rubble,
Cornered and in trouble as the bodycount doubles.

Dark nights spent in candlelight,
Children sleep in there bed,
As bombers glide overhead,
The bleek reality goes over their heads.

The blitz is a travesty that decimates architecture,
And leaves structures in travesty,
Calamities in the evening and in the morning,
A start clarity of the destructive reality.

Hindsight in bombsites, mortuaries from mortar shells,
Instructions to give them hell,
You believe them less as each days passes,
Bodies piled up in masses, teardrops without caskets.

Only dog tags identify the men in the body bags,
Men treated worse than dogs,
The living skip over the corpses of fallen comrades.

Peace will not come fast,
Hard to run fast with rations and rucksacks,
Bullets start to wizz past,
As they proceed to fulfill dumb tasks.

Whiskey in hip flasks,
Trying to shoot back,
Wishing you just get a lift back,
Home to the motherland.

Fighting in foreign lands,
Your mother holds her head in her wrinkled hands,
Her husband holds her close,
He's been there before you.

Fought in the great war too,
And lived through to tell the tale,
And ironically see history repeating itself,
A picture of their son sits on the shelf,
He lies wounded in battle, needing there help.

Oh well,
Give them hell,
It's just one of many stories to tell.

To The Warmongers

To The Warmongers

By Siegfried Sassoon
May 27, 2017

I’m back again from hell
With loathsome thoughts to sell;
Secrets of death to tell;
And horrors from the abyss.

Young faces bleared with blood,
Sucked down into the mud,
You shall hear things like this,
Till the tormented slain.

Crawl round and once again,
With limbs that twist awry,
Moan out their brutish pain,
As for the fighters pass them by.

For you our battles shine
With triumph half-divine;
And the glory of the dead,
Kindles in each proud eye.

But a curse is on my head,
That shall not be unsaid,
And the wounds in my heart are red,
For I have watched them die.

The Chicken Hawk

All Poetry
May 24, 2017

I wanted to be a mechanic.

I wanted to learn a trade.

Yet here I am in this desert hell,
Fighting wars politicians made.

We're moved like puzzle pieces,
More than half a world away.

We fight, we bleed, our psyches scarred,
Today, and every day.

Not only have they never fought,
Their children have been spared.

It's left to us, the young and poor,
To go where they've not dared.

It's easy to be a commander,
When you've never come to harm.

It's easy to make decisions,
With your loved ones safe and warm.

If I could have one wish,
It would not be for wealth.

I'd pray that no one could wage a war,
Unless he had served himself.

And up through the ground come a bubblin crude.

Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea, on the Golan Heights man.

Well we already know old Jake's a billionaire,
With kinfolk stretched across the planet everywhere.

Except not a relative lived in Tel Aviv,
Loaded up the limo and moved in with the Israeli’s.

On the Heights, that is,
Oil pools, movie deals, war!

Well, now it’s time to say goodbye to Jake and all his kin,
Dick, Rupert, and Effie, thank you all for kindly droppin in.

You’re all invited back next week to this same area,
To have an illegal heapin’ helpin’ of our bombs in Syria.

Golan Hillbillies, that is.

The Coming Civil War In America

The Coming Civil War In America

By Dr. Michael Hill
League Of The South
May 18, 2017

With each passing day, we move closer to open conflict in America
– civil war, if you will–between the forces of Western Civilization
(which is founded on a biblical understanding of nationalism) and
the forces of Judeo-Marxism or godless international leftism in
general.

Both major US political parties are being pulled in one of these
directions or the other.

As soon as Trump took office back in January (if not before), the
left made it clear that it would not accept the practical outcome
of the November 2016 election.

For the past few months, they have done everything they can to
prevent the new administration from governing and from enacting
the platform on which it was elected.

This resistance goes as far as openly disobeying the law (see
“Sanctuary Cities”) and carrying out street violence against
Trump supporters (see Antifa and Black Lives Matter).

The elite, Jew-dominated media have run interference for the
left by pushing the anti-nationalist, progressive Narrative non
stop.

The tension has been ratcheted so high that something simply
has to give.

And it will.

All it will take is one incident in which a supporter of one side or
the other is killed in a public venue and the episode distributed
widely on social media.

If things keep moving as they are now, such a tragic event is not
merely possible but likely.

Then the conflagration begins in earnest.

I have long been convinced that the US was headed for a real civil
war (that conflict from 1861-65 was not a “civil war” but a war
between two sovereign nations) and that the left would precipitate
it by their intolerance of any rule but their own.

Their leftist ideology simply will not allow them to compromise
for the sake of establishing a stable society in which differences
are worked out peacefully by well and long-established means.

For the left, the so-called virtues of tolerance and diversity
are ploys to be used against gullible conservatives.

The left itself has no truck with either.

They are interested only in establishing an ideological state that
is at it's base anti-white and anti-Christian.

It is high time “conservatives” wake up to the game that has been
worked so successfully against them for the last half century.

When someone like Trump, who ostensibly represents the interests
of the normal white middle and working classes who elected him,
stands in the way of the leftist work of progressing toward the
establishment of their ideological state, leftists behave as they are
at present–with violence and obstruction.

The U.S. has ceased to be a governable polity in 2017.

It must split into at least two (and preferably more) separate,
sovereign political entities to accommodate the two fundamental
sides or it must be plagued with hostilities that ultimately will
lead to open conflict and bloodshed on a scale unimaginable since
World War Two in a civilized part of the world.

Trust me. I don't think much of James Comey.

That being said, I stand by one thing to this day:

James Comey had nothing to do with Hillary Clinton's loss.

I say that confidently because not one person in America even
"gets" that what she did with her server actually DID violate the
Espionage Act.

You do not need to have criminal intent.

All you need to do is what she did.

Remove classified documents from their secure surroundings.

Period.

End of story.

Nobody cared.

For me, it was a very important factor, but for most people it's
over their heads.

Hillary Clinton is the reason Hillary Clinton lost.

She lost because she telegraphs that she doesn't give a shit about
the vast majority of Americans.

She does not travel in their circles, and she doesn't care to
understand their needs.

She sure didn't visit any of those areas of the country in all the
time she was out there running for the highest office in the land.

And she surrounded herself with people just like her: Corrupt.

From Debbie Wasserman Schultz, to Donna Brazile, to David Brock,
to George Soros.

They say you are judged by the company you keep.

People who aren't in a position of having to figure out just how to
get enough to "get by" probably don't give two shits about that paragraph above.

But I believe those who are in that position actually DO give a shit.

In short, I'm on board with blaming Mr. Comey for many things, one
of which is dropping the investigation into Hillary Clinton and the
Clinton Foundation.

But please, let us not blame James Comey for Clinton's 2016 loss.

Is Trump Really President?

Is Trump Really President?

Is Trump being allowed to “Play at President” for public
consumption, while the generals, spooks, and financial
pirates run the show?

These are strange times in U.S. politics.

And stranger still is the emerging character of the
Trump presidency.

Events are appearing with growing frequency, raising the question
who is really running the White House and the U.S. government?

Is Trump really the president?

Trump sits there on the second floor, spending late evenings
into early mornings tweeting to the world.

In itself, that’s politically weird.

But even more strange is what he’s tweeting and the next day
fallout.

We hear about the aircraft carrier task force in Asia that was
reportedly steaming at full speed to the North Korean coast a
few weeks ago, only to learn soon after it was actually headed
in the opposite direction to Australia.

Did Donald imagine that?

Was the U.S. Navy informed or requested by its titular commander
in chief to turn around and go north … and then didn’t?

Was Trump’s command to go north perhaps countermanded by
some head of Naval operations, or maybe someone else in the
White House or government?

Or did he just imagine it all and never even informed the Navy
to head to Korea?

All the possibilities are strange.

Very strange.

And then there was the announcement by Trump that his big
budget was going to be announced in a few days.

It wasn’t even prepared.

Government bureaucrats had to quickly slap something together
in a couple of pages to provide to the press.

Trump did it again, tweeted announcing his big tax cuts.

Again the bureaucrats were caught off guard and had to throw
some general outline together and issue it to the press.

All this happened after it was generally known that the tax cut
proposals were not going to be developed until late summer,
and that the Obamacare Repeal bill had to go forward first.

The Obamacare repeal was a necessary prerequisite for the
general tax cut.

Its $592 billion in tax cuts for business and investors had to
come first.

Until it was resolved, it made no sense to publicize elements of the
yet bigger tax cuts of trillions of dollars more scheduled to follow.

But Trump tweeted it anyway, and the bureaucracy jumped,
putting something down on paper.

Who’s communicating what to whom?

Is Donald just lobbing electronic policy missiles out of the second
floor of the White House, hoping some bureaucrat will catch them
before morning?

Or perhaps Trump is being allowed to sit up there on the second
floor of the White House and do his tweet thing, while others
actually run the government.

By others, perhaps it is vice-president Pence in charge, working
with some inside committee of key cabinet officers and the
intelligence spooks in the NSA-CIA-FBI?

Is Trump being allowed to, “Play at President” for public
consumption, while the generals, spooks, and Goldman Sachs
financial pirates run the show?

It’s hard to believe that the members of his administration and
the government State bureaucracy knew in advance of Trump’s
recent tweets welcoming Philippines President Duterte to the
White House.

Or that Trump would tweet recently that he’s willing to meet with
North Korea’s president, for whom he, Trump, had great respect.

You can imagine the political constipation that comment caused the
spooks and the generals in charge of State, Defense, and National
Security.

Nov. 30, 2016, this writer wrote a piece predicting that Trump the
right wing populist would be successfully ‘tamed’ by the political
elites of this country that really run the show.

I laid out some ideas how that would be accomplished,
but I didn’t think it would happen so fast and so easily.

The past month has witnessed Trump doing a total about face on
virtually all his right-wing populist proposals during the election.

He’s backtracking so fast it’s a wonder he hasn’t tripped
over himself. (Check that, he has).

What explains his 180 degree turnabout?

Was his talk of right wing populism during the campaign
all political election hype?

Tell the people whatever they want to hear to get elected, and
then go do whatever the moneybags really running the show
want from you---which is big tax cuts, massive across-the-board
deregulation, end the taxation on Obamacare and we don’t care
what happens to the rest of it, give us some infrastructure spending
deals that resurrect wheeling-dealing commercial property
investments with big tax loopholes, and just tweak and rearrange
existing free trade treaties.

So what we actually got so far from Trump during his first 100 days
is government by ‘executive orders’—i.e. repealing environmental
protections, gutting immigrants’ rights, going after sanctuary cities,
opening up national monuments and parks to mining and cattle
exploitation, subsidizing killer coal companies, attacking consumer
protection, smoke and mirror changes to H1-B skilled worker import
quotas that haven’t changed, gutting K-12 education and shifting
funds to private schools from public, opening up offshore drilling,
and so on.

But elsewhere it’s been a wholesale retreat from his election
positions, proposals, and promises.

Here’s a short list:

Trump does a reversal on China, from declaring it a currency
manipulator to offering it major concessions at the Mar-a-Lago
meeting, in exchange for help with North Korea.

One wonders if China’s offshore islands expansion is also part
of the deal.

From NATO is a waste of money and unnecessary, Trump shifts
to NATO is the great bulwark against Russia.

From Putin the great leader to Putin is responsible for Syria
using poison gas--of which still no proof thereof by the way.

Is it true, or is it all in that great American tradition of “yellow
cake” (2003), “babies thrown from incubators” (1990), “tonkin
gulf”(1965), “the war on drugs” (Panama invasion), “Soviets are
in Grenada,” and “remember the Maine” (Spanish-American War)
incidents that always precede and justify US going to war.

From Mexico is going to pay for the wall, to there’ll be no wall
(latest per Homeland Security Secretary).

From dumping NAFTA, to “I’m not going to terminate
NAFTA”’ (Trump quote).

And then there’s Trump’s staged press conferences with companies
like Carrier Corp., indicating they’re not going to export some jobs
to Mexico for now (as they continue to plan to export still others at
the same time).

And the list of companies announcing jobs they intend to hire in
the US without saying when, or that they already had planned to
hire them anyway prior to the press conference.

From cancelling the TTP free trade deal (already killed in
Congress), to declaring a reopening of the TTIP free trade
deal with Europe.

And what about the silent deal Trump struck with Japan’s prime
minister, Shinzo Abe, when he was here?

It’s been leaked that Japan will pick up the lead on the TPP
renegotiations and the U.S. will join it later.

Or Mexico’s recent offer to the U.S. to just apply the TPP terms
to a new ‘reform’ of NAFTA by Mexico and the U..S?

Watch both these back door free trade resurrections,
they’re coming too.

And what about Trump’s organizational about face, with right wing
ideologue Steve Bannon banished from the National Security Council
and pro-Russia general Flynn banished from the government?

What I also find interesting is the intense media attack on
Trump— focusing on his Russia connection, his tax returns,
nepotism in the White House, his companies’ benefiting (a
violation of the emoluments clause of the US constitution)
and calls for impeachment in Congress—all of sudden all the
above have disappeared from view in the media front page.

They’ve been put on the back burner in Congress and the press.

And there’s no more damaging leaks coming weekly from the
intelligence spooks either.

Instead, what we hear is talk about ‘now he’s coming around’
beginning to appear presidential.

Is all that just coincidental? Hmmm.

Is this a presidency where the Donald gets to sit on the second
floor of the White House and do his late night tweets, and the
bureaucrats scurry the next day to clean up?

Where Donald is brought downstairs to the oval office for Executive
Order signings or occasional reporter interviews and then trotted
back upstairs?

Is it a presidency where he makes his late night calls to his
moneybag friends, like the billionaire Mercers and others,
to find out ‘how am I doing guys’?

While the rest of the representatives of the economic and political
elite run the show?

Is this a Trump presidency, or a government by Generals-Goldman
Sachs-Pence, with son in law Kushner functioning as intermediary
between them and the Donald?

A government of second floor tweets and first floor executive order
signing events?

The quality of the American presidency has been in steady decline
for decades.

From the crook Nixon to the inept peanut farmer, Carter; from
the movie-actor, camera friendly Reagan to the morally sleezy
opportunist Bill Clinton; from know-nothing George Bush to the
super-cautious false progressive Obama; and now to the fake right
populist, blowhard, tweety-bird called Donald Trump.

We’re going to need a lot of luck to get through the next three and
a half years folks!
