NUCLEAR ARMAGEDDON CLOSER THAN EVER

The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists has ominously pegged the Doomsday Clock at 3 minutes to midnight and is debating whether to go up to 2!   In accord, top international affairs analysts have warned we are closer to nuclear war now then we were in the worst days of the “Cold War”!  The Obama/Clinton Administration has begun a new #1 Trillion nuke-building program — pushed by the military-industrial complex of course — for a whole new super generation of nuclear bombs and high-tech delivery systems.  The President who got a Nobel Peace Prize has actually ignited a super arms race with both Russia and China and bombed/droned more countries in the Middle East and Africa.

This paragraph is from a former top Reagan Administration official who also was an editor of The Wall Street Journal (full article at top of WashReport.com today)

This extremely high risk has been created entirely by the Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes in which zionist neoconservatives have controlled foreign and military policies…   The mere existence of nuclear weapons means the nonexistence of life on earth. It will happen sooner or later. To raise the risk as the crazed American government is doing with irresponsible provocations of the Russians and Chinese is the ultimate criminal act.

(1982)





Bernie Choked Because…

26 07 2016

Why did Bernie do it?   Why did he give up the political revolution and team up with Hillary?    Why did he order his troops to lay down their arms?  Why did he tell Cornell West and others to lay low?

Not really a big secret!   Bernie trembles that if Trump were to now take the White House the blame would fall to him.  When he began his quest the idea of a Trump POTUS was even less likely than of himself!   He understandably now fears that real possibility far more than he does everything else.

That’s also why  Bernie didn’t take any of the other choices available to him.   Heading up either the Green ticket or joining with the Libertarians rather than attending his first Democratic Party convention were options.   Or even trying to join his forces with both the Greens and Libertarians with the greater aim of creating a “respectable” third party was another option.  Or he could have even symbolically withheld  his endorsement for a seriously progressive VP choice.

Instead Bernie has probably settled for a vague promise of some role in a Clinton Presidency and decided most of all to try to insulate himself from the fallout if, just if, Hillary should falter and “The Donald” prevail.     No wonder so many of his supporters — always fighting for a cause rather than him personally — are so dismayed.  The Political Revolution that could have been is over.





Not about Bernie!

26 07 2016

“Feel the Bern” was never about the aging, gray-haired, Jewish socialist Senator from Vermont who last night attended his very first Democratic Party Convention.  A spokesman symbol for alternative policies quite antithetical to both the Dem Party and the Clintons was desperately needed.  Last year, into that void stepped aging Bernie!   Last night, understandably much more fearful of Trump than truly supportive of Hillary, Bernard Sanders ran out of political steam and essentially gave up.





Bloomberg for Hillary, Obama Brother for Trump

24 07 2016

   Wed night ahead, same evening as President Obama and VP Biden, Michael Bloomberg’s Clinton endorsement is going to be a major plus for her..far more significant than Obama’s half brother defecting to The Donald.  The Dems are about to put on quite a show, one that probably will bump Hillary back into better poll numbers and position her to win.  But with the debates looming so huge this year and the international scene so bloody and chaotic…Trump has already proven he is capable of doing the impossible.





Attacking TRUMP goes establishment VIRAL

24 07 2016

Establishment media around the world as well as in the U.S. are going after Donald Trump with unprecedented un-restraint.  First below The Daily Mail in the U.K, second The Washington Post, and third (which you will have to find online) the Panel discussion this morning at 8am EST on the Sunday NBC TODAY program.   (see top of WashReport.com today for more)

Rarely has a US presidential nomination proved so divisive. As we reveal in this shocking exposé, Republican hopeful Donald Trump has surmounted a lifetime of absurd exaggerations, flimsy fabrications, outright lies, and worse.  It is a devastating account of the laughable yet truly sinister world of The Donald…   http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3704956/Donald-Trump-s-phantom-lovers.html#ixzz4FLZGn23f

  of THE WASHINGTON POST (owned by Amazon Jeff Bezos) July 22:

DONALD J. TRUMP, until now a Republican problem, thisweek became a challenge the nation must confront and overcome. The real estate tycoon is uniquely unqualified to serve as president, in experience and temperament. He is mounting a campaign of snarl and sneer, not substance. To the extent he has views, they are wrong in their diagnosis of America’s problems and dangerous in their proposed solutions. Mr. Trump’s politics of denigration and division could strain the bonds that have held a diverse nation together. His contempt for constitutional norms might reveal the nation’s two-century-old experiment in checks and balances to be more fragile than we knew.

Any one of these characteristics would be disqualifying; together, they make Mr. Trump a peril. We recognize that this is not the usual moment to make such a statement. In an ordinary election year, we would acknowledge the Republican nominee, move on to the Democratic convention and spend the following months, like other voters, evaluating the candidates’ performance in debates, on the stump and in position papers. This year we will follow the campaign as always, offering honest views on all the candidates. But we cannot salute the Republican nominee or pretend that we might endorse him this fall. A Trump presidency would be dangerous for the nation and the world.

Why are we so sure? Start with experience. It has been 64 years since a major party nominated anyone for president who did not have electoral experience. That experiment turned out pretty well — but Mr. Trump, to put it mildly, is no Dwight David Eisenhower. Leading the Allied campaign to liberate Europe from the Nazis required strategic and political skills of the first order, and Eisenhower — though he liked to emphasize his common touch as he faced the intellectual Democrat Adlai Stevenson — was shrewd, diligent, humble and thoughtful.

Russia versus “the West”

23 07 2016

NOW RUSSIAN OLYMPICS SANCTIONED

Image result for us versus russia caricature

 This summary from Peter Lavelle, the host of CrossTalk on RT:

The political assault on Russia’s Olympic Team and future role in international sports is a travesty of a monumental proposition. This is not about sports; it’s about still another attempt to isolate Russia on the world stage. To date this strategy has been a dismal failure. Western sanctions related to Ukraine have not worked; in fact they have backfired. The west is obsessed with making Russia submit to its diktat and ultimately encourage Russians to force a regime change against themselves. This is pure folly. Sanctions have not damaged the Russian economy or created hardships for the average citizen. Washington’s blunders around the world have only enhanced Russia’s profile in international relations when it is needed most. Russians see this and thankfully they are finally realizing the west is hostile to them; understanding the west will resort to anything to undermine their country. Washington and its pliant allies are making a terrible mistake. International sports are being horrifically tainted with this kind of gross politicization. The west again shows itself to be petty and narrow-minded. I have long argued Russia should disengage from western-controlled institutions. Those institutions are rigged and are tools of western hegemony. Russia should leave these institutions – the west and not Russia will be poorer as a result.





Obama has wrapped himself in the flag

22 07 2016

Thinking about Obama, Trump and Hillary

This actually explains much of the Obama Presidency.  When it came to international affairs, right from the start Obama felt he had to wrap himself in the Red, White and Blue precisely because he was a black, young, and inexperienced Commander-in-Chief.   If and when Hillary takes to the Oval Office she will have to do the same but in her case most of all because she would be the first woman titularly commanding the Generals. That’s on top of Benghazi, her Neocon and Israeli alliances, and the constant onslaught against her that will not end as long as she is in the White House.  Like it or not, these are among the reasons some who would normally not consider voting for Trump are already reconsidering.
