The Federal Reserve Is Destroying America

Here are some observations from Chris Martenson:

The most compassion I can drum up for central bankers right now is to observe that they really do have an impossible job; and their training has been simply too narrow and dogmatic for them to detect the gaping, obvious flaws in their world views.  They never studied energy resource issues. Nor did they have to take any behavioral psychology classes that would have explained to them how deeply unfair economic practices are socially corrosive. Nor any history classes that would expose how such actions proved ruinous when they were applied in previous societies.

But here we are. The fact that the central bankers are either accidentally ignorant or purposely too lazy to explore the wider world of ideas is not one you can ignore any longer.  Real consequences are coming and there’s no ducking them.  We’re all in this big canoe of life together and the Fed and our political officials are exhorting us to paddle faster towards the roaring falls ahead.

I would argue that they are neither "accidentally ignorant or purposely too lazy". They know exactly what they are doing and what the consequences will be.

But they don't give a damn, because they think they personally will not be negatively affected by what they are doing.

And that suggests they are monsters.

Privatizing US Infrastructure ???

President Trump once again appears to be selling out We The People:

Throughout the presidential campaign, Donald Trump blasted his rival for taking money from Saudi Arabia, which, he regularly charged, has a horrific human rights record and was behind the attack on September 11.

“You talk about women and women’s rights? So these are people that push gays off buildings. These are people that kill women and treat women horribly. And yet you take their money,” he complained.

Trump, of course, has never been married to anything he has said in the past. But even by Trumpian standards, a recent series of deals he struck with Saudi Arabia stand out.

The two that made the news - a $110 billion arms deal and a $100 million gift to an Ivanka Trump-inspired endowment - are remarkable in their own right.

But the third, which was rolled out much more quietly, is no less stunning: The Saudi kingdom joined forces with a top outside adviser to Trump to build a $40 billion war chest to privatize U.S. infrastructure.

The vehicle would employ the same kind of public-private partnerships, known as P3s, the Trump administration has endorsed for its trillion dollar infrastructure plan. The deal hands over control of projects to rebuild American roads and bridges to the private sector and a foreign country.

This is an EXTREMELY bad idea, similar to how the assets of the crumbling USSR were sold to the oligarchs for mere kopecks on the ruble.

Welcome to the market state, where everything is for sale ... and where you're only worth what you can bring on the open market.

Most Popular Books Of All Time

They all shared one thing. See below for what that is.


One of the important traits shared by every book on this list is the controversy that has swirled around each of them. This can be seen across different time periods and genres.

Are Pensions A Thing Of The Past ???

Public and private pensions are under attack around the globe. Here is a report which explores the magnitude of the problem:

Earlier this week we highlighted "Six Terrifying Graphs That Summarize America's Public Pension Crisis" which ranked state, county and city-level public pensions in the United States by which are screwed the most.  To summarize, the study concluded that public pensions in the U.S. alone are currently underfunded by nearly $4 trillion and that taxpayers in Illinois, California and New Jersey should probably be looking to move before getting drowned in their state's coming pension-induced tax hike tsunami.

Of course, as we've argued before, the current pension underfunding levels are sure to only get worse over the coming decades as the world will have to contend with a wave of retiring Baby Boomers and a period of lackluster, volatile returns.  So how bad could the global funding gap get?  Unfortunately, the World Economic Forum (WEF) recently set out to solve that impossible math equation and it turns out the answer is about $400 trillion ... give or take a couple trillion.

Now, Mark Zuckerberg thinks that we can fight this problem somehow by embracing globalism and fighting nationalism. You can read about it here:

http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/05/26/530159142/mark-zuckerberg-tells-harvard-graduates-to-embrace-globalism-a-sense-of-purpose

Dear Mark - Won't that mean that in future NO ONE will get a pension (other than rich bastards like you)?

For a lengthy critique of Zuckerberg's plans for humanity, go here:

https://www.forbes.com/sites/timworstall/2017/05/26/zuckerbergs-harvard-speech-shows-he-doesnt-quite-get-the-economics-of-jobs-and-automation/#76da63e81671

Or just consider my simplistic alternative - as long as we value things more than we value people, we're all just rats fighting over the same limited supply of cheese.

Zuckerberg and the other tech titans need to craft a system which does more than just enrich them with wealth surpassing that of Croesus. If they cannot achieve something which truly benefits We The People, then we should boycott them into poverty in a manner similar to what they are doing to us.

Or we could just starve in the dark while they live in splendor.

Federal Investigations Are BS

For the most part, federal investigations in the US are nothing but crap, especially when they appear to involve alleged crimes by members of the deep state. Here are a few examples:

  • JFK murder investigation
  • MLK murder investigation
  • RFK murder investigation
  • George Wallace shooting investigation
  • Vince Foster murder investigation
  • Branch Davidian (Waco) murder investigation
  • OKC bombing investigation
  • First WTC bombing investigation
  • Chandra Levy murder investigation
  • 9/11 "attacks" investigation
  • Anthrax attacks investigation
  • Boston Marathon bombing investigation

So why should we believe that the "official" Seth Rich murder investigation will ever determine what really happened to him?

Secret Channels To Russia

Trump and his son-in-law are under fire for seeking a secret communication channel to Russia. You can read about it here:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/russian-ambassador-told-moscow-that-kushner-wanted-secret-communications-channel-with-kremlin/2017/05/26/520a14b4-422d-11e7-9869-bac8b446820a_story.html

If you recall, JFK also sought and achieved such a secret channel, and prevented a nuclear war by doing so.

While I agree that Trump is no Jack Kennedy, it is ironic that both men who (at least initially) sought peace with Russia have been viciously attacked by the US military-industrial-banking-information complex (a.k.a. the deep state). One lost his life, and we still don't know the ultimate fate of the other.

This ain't no democracy. And the MSM is no "free press". So let's just cut the crap already, OK?

Migrants Cause A Measles Outbreak In Europe

There is a measles outbreak in Europe. Here is a report about what is happening in Germany:

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-40056680

And here is another report about the European situation in general:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/health-39419976

Note well that neither report says anything about how the virus was brought into Europe, other than this vague statement in the second report:

Travel patterns mean no person or country is beyond its reach, says the WHO.

Both reports instead blame the outbreak on a failure to vaccinate.

THIS IS BULLSHIT !!!

The virus almost certainly was imported by migrants from Libya and Syria. The vaccination part of these reports (especially the denial of any vaccine-autism link) is a red herring.

Big Pharma is using this as an excuse to make more money.

Here's a better solution:

  • Stop destroying nation states for the benefit of Israel and the US;
  • Stop bombing vaccine factories in Africa and the Middle East; and
  • Screen migrants for diseases at the border.

Or keep subjecting you and your children to expensive, dangerous vaccines for no good reason.

By the way, the bombing of vaccine factories is an act of biological warfare on Muslim populations. Outbreaks such as the current one are part of the blowback.

Are you happy now?

An Absurd Claim About Submarines

According to some, President Trump has compromised our submarine force. You can read about it here:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-05-24/nyt-once-again-bashing-trumps-loose-lips

Trump's words in no way are a threat to the security of our subs.

As a former submarine officer I can truthfully say that subs are hard to find even if you think you know where they are. The oceans are big, and they are an excellent place to hide.

By the way, Tom Clancy's novels did compromise the security of our submarine force and other elements of our military. And I even saw a report in the New London, CT newspaper that at one point the US Navy was showing the Russians how to detect our submarines underwater.

Did any of you clowns complain about that?

Media Hypocrites

Today I watched (as much as I could stand) while the MSM whined endlessly about how a GOP candidate allegedly "body slammed" a reporter.

This is the same MSM which didn't report that Ray McGovern was beaten by Hillary's guards for doing more or less the same thing that reporter is alleged to have done.

This also is the same MSM which still reminds us constantly that Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning, and Edward Snowden are traitors, not heroes; and which continues to defend the CIA and FBI, which together do little or nothing to protect this country.

To the so-called US "free press" - you are worthless to We The People, and you're not even very good whores, either. Please stop tampering with our elections and trying to overthrow our government.

Killing Civilians - Us Vs. Them

We all are upset (and rightly so) about the Manchester suicide bomber who just killed several civilians, including children.

However, the US kills MANY civilians, including children, nearly every day. Here is but one example:

http://theantimedia.org/syria-us-airstrikes-civilians-children/

Why aren't we as upset about THAT?

I firmly believe that more bombing is not a justified response from either side, for any reason. If we want the bombing to stop, EVERYONE will have to stop.

And by the way, no Christian should have been bombing anyone in the first place:

Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Matthew 5:43-48 KJV

Obama Confused About Walls

Barry, you ignorant slut. Go tell that to your friends the Israelis, for whom the US is paying to build a wall to do just that.

Far more US citizens have been injured or killed by illegal immigrants than the number of Israelis killed by Palestinians. If they can have a wall to "protect" themselves, so should we.

This is wrong on at least two counts:

  2. Under the Torah, they cannot go en masse to Jerusalem until Messiah comes.

Stop supporting these lawbreakers.

Turmoil at Ford?

Ford Motor was the American automaker savvy enough to avoid bankruptcy when industry sales collapsed during the 2008 financial crisis. Then it rode economic recovery and cheap gasoline to record sales and profits. But what looks like success can turn upside down quickly in Detroit these days.

The latest evidence came Monday when Ford ousted its chief executive, Mark Fields, after only three years in the job. Mr. Fields had failed to persuade investors and his own board that the company was moving fast enough to develop the vehicles of the future, like battery-powered cars that drive themselves.

You can read the rest @

I'd be willing to bet the motoring public in general has little interest in battery-powered cars that drive themselves. They're expensive, have very limited range, and few people have access to a recharging station.

So who are these "concerned investors"? Not We The People, that's for sure. It's the oligarchs, bankgangsters, corporate CEOs, and their collaborators in the one percent who drank the climate change Kool-Aid.

Hey guys, I'm not going to buy any battery powered, self driving car. Capisce?

And by the way, what is going to power all these battery cars? The numbers just don't add up:

Something To Think About

From the review of a new book about Stalin:

Among his interviews with the families of Soviet leaders was one with Beria's daughter-in-law, who agreed he was a monster but noted that he was always very kind to her. "She said Beria was the kind of man who, if he lived in the United States, might very well have become chairman of General Motors."

War With North Korea Imminent ???

According to one source, the US is getting ready to attack North Korea:

The US is preparing to attack North Korea, according to Geopolitical Futures founder George Friedman - setting the stage for a difficult, messy war with potentially catastrophic consequences. Speaking Monday to a rapt audience at the 2017 Strategic Investment Conference in Orlando, Friedman said that while it is unlikely the US will take action before President Trump returns home at the weekend, North Korea’s actions appear to have “offered the US no alternative” to a clash.

There is ALWAYS an alternative, especially for those who are willing to offer one of their own. But that's not us, is it?

Say a prayer for our military and theirs. If this attack goes forward, a lot of people are going to be killed.

By the way, who's going to impeach a President in the middle of a war?

Should We Burn Down Our Universities ???

That's what JC Collins advocates:

Our educational buildings and curriculums have been used to erode and shatter all the ideals of natural and instinctual existence which have developed within the Western mind. The more we remember and rediscover, the more we realize that almost everything which is taught in our schools is either a corrupt twisted version of truth, or is an outright lie and fabrication.

% % % % % % % %

Now is the time to act and reverse the momentum which has thus far worked against us. We need to tear down the institutions and framework of the simulated world which has built up around us. The great school of the Western mind cannot be destroyed and it will never stop learning. In fact, this challenge, the one we have been faced with now for generations, could very well end up being one of our greatest lessons and opportunities for advancement.

You can read the rest @
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-05-22/lets-burn-down-universities

While I agree in principle, there is a serious flaw in his thinking - very soon there will be no one left in the US who even WANTS to preserve "the great school of the Western mind". It is those who intend to destroy that great school who are burning down our universities.

And since that appears to be what the powers that be want, that's what is going to happen. It's far easier to disrupt and destroy than it is to build. If you need proof of this, just look at Iraq, Libya, and Syria.

A New Way To Teach Math

Unveiled earlier this month, the course aims to teach math instructors how to craft lesson-plans that incorporate social justice in order to raise their students’ awareness

“Do you ask students to think deeply about global and local social justice issues within your mathematics classroom?” a course overview asks. “This education and teacher training course will help you blend secondary math instruction with topics such as inequity, poverty, and privilege to transform students into global thinkers and mathematicians.”

According to the website, the course can even help students to learn math, because while many aspects of middle- and high-school math “can seem abstract to students,” the developers claim that “setting the mathematics within a specially-developed social justice framework can help students realize the power and meaning of both the data and social justice concerns.”

You may not agree, but I think this is part of the "destroy the USA" program. The only way to deal with inequity, poverty, and privilege is to lower our standard of living. And that means the end of US exceptionalism.

If we were doing this as Christians, I might be happy. But we're not; we're doing it as vassals of the oligarchs, bankgangsters, corporate CEOs, and their collaborators in the one percent. And that is decidedly un-Christian.

Did Fraud Lead To Greek Crisis ???

On May 18, a new chapter was written in Greece’s economic odyssey, as the Greek parliament, with the votes of the SYRIZA and Independent Greeks coalition government, approved Greece’s fourth memorandum loan package since the onset of the country’s depression. The strings attached to this new deal with the “troika” of Greece’s lenders include 140 new austerity measures, including tax hikes and additional pension cuts.

This comes just weeks after the Greek government triumphantly announced the achievement of a 4.2-percent budget surplus for 2016, exceeding expectations. Greece is in the midst of its eighth full year of economic depression, a crisis that emerged in late 2009 when it was revealed that Greece’s deficit and debt figures were larger than had previously been publicized.

Was this really the case though? Several former board members of the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT) have spoken publicly in recent years, revealing evidence that they argue proves that Greece’s debt and deficit figures were indeed falsified in 2009.

But the evidence provided by these whistleblowers shows that the figures were actually falsified in order to appear worse than they were in reality, providing the political impetus to bring Greece under the supervision of the “troika” (consisting of the IMF, European Commission, and European Central Bank) and leading to successive memorandum agreements and the enactment of strict austerity measures.

Further fueling these claims, former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has publicly admitted that in April 2009 he met with George Papandreou, who was then campaigning in Greece on a platform of promises of new social services and benefits, claiming on the campaign trail that “we have money” for these programs.

Papandreou, who had not yet been elected, came to power following the Greek elections of Oct. 4, 2009. A few months later, the new government publicly announced that the deficit and debt figures for 2009 were higher than originally claimed by the outgoing government.

Is The Weiner Sexting Case Based On Lies ???

Here is another highly revealing example of how the MSM continues to spread falsehoods as if they were gospel truth:

On Friday, former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) accepted a plea deal in a Manhattan courtroom to a charge of “transfer of obscene material to a minor.” WhoWhatWhy has learned that much of what we know about this crime — which played a major role in the outcome of the election — is a lie.

The official narrative is that Weiner, husband of Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin, had exchanged explicit messages with a 15-year-old girl. The FBI got involved, seized Weiner’s laptop and discovered emails from Clinton on the hard drive. This caused FBI Director James Comey to inform Congress that new evidence had been unearthed in the investigation of Clinton’s mishandling of classified information.

She never recovered from the revelation, which ended up yielding no new information in the case, but, with the scandal fresh in the minds of voters, Donald Trump went on to his astonishing come-from-behind victory.

The North Carolina teenager at the center of the controversy was reported to be heartbroken. A self-described supporter of Clinton, she expressed regret over the role she had played in the election’s outcome.

There is just one problem with this narrative: The girl’s story isn’t true.

A WhoWhatWhy investigation has uncovered numerous substantive falsehoods and mischaracterizations —  raising doubts about a case that changed the 2016 election and American history:

•  The girl was presented in news accounts — and Weiner’s plea deal — as being 15 at the time, that is, under the age of consent in her state. She was not.

•  Weiner’s victim and her family were not, as represented, Clinton fans — they actually were strong Trump enthusiasts. Her story was trusted in part because she was characterized as having no axe to grind with Clinton or the Democrats.

•  Weiner’s “sexting” partner was not simply a victim. Contrary to tabloid accounts, she initiated the contact with Weiner. And she went out of her way to seek advice from a GOP-associated figure behind prior efforts to harm Weiner and other Democrats.

To be clear, what Weiner did was morally indefensible. None of the evidence we provide is meant to excuse his behavior. But it is impossible to overstate the significance of the lies his teen sexting partner told in ensuring the story became a national sensation. The big question that remains is why.

We're Dying From Preventable Diseases

Americans are dying at a shockingly high rate from preventable causes, found a first-of-its-kind global health study published late Thursday.

The new research demonstrates that despite the fact that the U.S. has the largest economy in the world, healthcare for many of its residents is woefully inadequate. The U.S. was tied with Estonia and Montenegro, far below other wealthy nations such as Norway, Canada, and Australia, in the study’s ranking of 195 countries.

“America’s ranking is an embarrassment, especially considering the U.S. spends more than $9,000 per person on health care annually, more than any other country,” said Dr. Christopher Murray, senior author of the study and director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington. “Anyone with a stake in the current healthcare debate, including elected officials at the federal, state, and local levels, should take a look at where the U.S. is falling short.”

You can read the rest @

Is Trump The Antichrist ???

In a previous post, I discussed how to tell Christ from Antichrist. I have repeated it below in italics, or you can view the original post here:

http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2013/04/how-to-tell-christ-from-antichrist.html

How to tell Christ from Antichrist

During Jesus' ministry two thousand years ago, He did the following to demonstrate that the Kingdom of G-d was at hand:
  • He healed the sick
  • He stopped strife and bloodshed
  • He raised the dead
  • He fed the hungry
When He returns during the End of Days, He will do the following to punish the inhabitants of the earth:
  • He will spread pestilence
  • He will cause strife and bloodshed
  • He will kill the wicked
  • He will spread famine
When that occurs, a charlatan whom we call the Antichrist will tell the inhabitants of the earth that they do not deserve the punishments which G-d is inflicting on them and will tell them he will save those who worship him:
  • He will promise to heal the sick
  • He will promise to stop the strife and bloodshed
  • He will promise to stop the killing
  • He will promise to feed the hungry
Yet, the Antichrist will not be able to deliver on those promises. He has no such powers. G-d will punish those whom He decides are deserving of His punishments, including the Antichrist.

The people of the United States falsely believe that they are without sin and are all going to heaven. When the punishment phase starts, they will flock to what they believe is the protection of the Christ, but it will be Antichrist to whom they turn. And in so doing they will turn their backs on G-d and seal their fate.

So how can you tell Christ from Antichrist? If He comes with G-d's wrath to punish you, He is Jesus Christ. If he comes with promises to protect you from G-d's wrath, he is the Antichrist. If you have been sealed by G-d, you're in the body of Christ. If you have taken the mark of the beast, you're in the body of Antichrist.

What has Obama ad-Dajjal done so far?

  1. ObamaCare = A promise of universal health care on which he cannot deliver
  2. Nobel Peace Prize = A promise of peace on which he did not and cannot deliver
  3. Promises to stop the killing  = Which were actually lies concealing his deadly drone strikes and other murders (e.g., Osama bin Laden)
  4. The Farmer Assurance Provision (a.k.a. the "Monsanto Protection Act") = A promise to protect our food supply which may actually help destroy it

Does he sound more like Christ or Antichrist? You make the call; it's one of the most important choices you will ever make.

########

Now let's assess what Trump has done to date:

  1. He tried to repeal and replace ObamaCare = He made an alternative promise of universal health care which most will agree is complete BS
  2. He is trying to make peace between Israel and the Palestinians, while making war on Syria, ISIS, and North Korea = He seems torn between war and peace
  3. He greatly increased the number of drone attacks and resulting deaths = He seems committed to death as a "way of life"
  4. He has taken various actions which withhold food stamps and other assistance from the poor and immigrants = He also seems committed to hunger and starvation as a means to accomplish his fiscal goals

In a way, he sounds like neither Christ nor Antichrist, at least not by the criteria listed above.

So perhaps he is a FALSE Christ. Distinguishing between Christ and false Christ is an entirely different matter, because their actions will be quite similar to each other. What follows should help you tell them apart:

[Previously posted @ http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2014/01/how-to-recognize-false-christ.html]

(1) From what is written in the Book of Revelation, it should be clear that the Second Coming of Jesus will be at the end of the reign of the Antichrist. Therefore, any Christ-like figure appearing BEFORE the Antichrist will be a false Christ.

(2) The two witnesses mentioned in Chapter 11 of the Book of Revelation will do some of the things which Christ will do (i.e., punish the inhabitants of the earth), but there will be TWO of them acting in concert so their identity should be obvious.

(3) There are two general types of false Christ: those who appear to be acting independently, and those who are at the head of a powerful organization such as a government. Two recent examples of such a person are David Koresh and former President George W. Bush, and much can be learned by contrasting the two men.

(4) Nowhere in the Bible does it say that G-d (or anyone else) will (or should) kill false Christs. If they are killed, it will be Satan or his proxies who kill them. Take note that the false Christ David Koresh was killed by the United States of America, not by G-d.

(5) Immediately prior to his death, David Koresh published what he called the decoding of the first seal of the Book of Revelation. I have read it, and what he said boils down to this: if the first seal has been opened, it means that someone WORTHY to open the seal has arrived; and of course that person is the Lamb of G-d.

(6) A further decoding of the first seal is this: the rider of the white horse represents the Greco-Roman god Apollo, who was a god associated with health and disease. As we saw above, when Jesus returns He will bring pestilence, while the Antichrist will promise health. Therefore, someone PRETENDING to be the Lamb of G-d and who falsely claims to have opened the first seal will accompany his actions with some sort of disease outbreak. THIS IS WHAT THE ANTHRAX "ATTACKS" FOLLOWING 9/11 REPRESENTED – A FALSE CHRIST (GEORGE W. BUSH) FALSELY CLAIMING TO HAVE OPENED THE FIRST SEAL AND FALSELY CLAIMING TO BE THE LAMB OF G-D. Take note that while Koresh was immediately killed for such blasphemy, Dubya continued to thrive for 7 more years.

(7) Christ's punishment of humanity will be widespread and universal, while the punishments brought about by a false Christ will be puny in comparison. Dubya did cause disease, war, death, and famine which were immense on a human scale, but he did not come close to what Jesus will do upon his return, killing at least one third of all humanity.

So the distinction between Christ and false Christ all comes down to timing, scale, and outcome:

  • Christ will come AFTER Antichrist,
  • Christ's punishment of humanity will be widespread and universal,
  • And following the Battle of Armageddon, Christ will put the Antichrist, false prophet, and all their followers into the bottomless pit and institute the Kingdom of G-d.

No false Christ could do these things; only the true Christ will have such power.

Considering all the above criteria and arguments, I have to conclude that President Trump's actions to date have suggested that he is a FALSE CHRIST.

But keep your eyes on him. He is a protean creature who could easily morph into something else in a New York minute.

Was WannaCry Attack Aimed At Bitcoin ???

Here is an interesting hypothesis from Vin Armani:

In this video, software and blockchain developer Vin Armani examines the WannaCry ransomware (attack) that the corporate media acted like it was the end of the world. Ultimately it appears to be an amateurish false flag attack on bitcoin. But upon digging into the bitcoin addresses used in the attack, Vin discovers a potentially much more nefarious attack on bitcoin.

The powers that be maintain their power in large part because of their control of money. It seems reasonable that bitcoin would be something they would want to either compromise or eliminate.

Is Anderson Cooper An Idiot ???

Another TV talking head has insulted President Trump:

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2017/05/20/anderson-cooper-jeffrey-lord-president-trump/101910560/

No, Trump will not "poop" on his desk.

However, Obama ad-Dajjal frequently did the equivalent by putting his shoes on OUR desk - the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office:


Being raised as a Muslim, Obama ad-Dajjal was aware such a gesture was a horrible insult to both his office and to We The People, yet TV talking heads like Cooper didn't seem to mind.

What does that say about Mr. Cooper? Is he an idiot, or merely complicit in Obama ad-Dajjal's insulting of the rest of us?

Getting Rid Of Assad And Trump

As you may know, Israel wants to assassinate President al-Assad of Syria:

http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2017/05/assassination-is-crime-no-matter-who.html

And now the German newspaper Der Spiegel has opined that President Trump "must be removed from the White House before things get even worse":

http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/donald-trump-is-a-menace-to-the-world-opinion-a-1148471.html

Hopefully they mean a nonviolent removal, but you never know.

Is there a connection here? Both leaders stand in the way of a globalist agenda which seems to benefit Israel and the rich ... and no one else. Both were popularly elected and still have the support of (at least) some of the citizens of their countries. Both are trying to prevent the globalist destruction of their respective sovereign nations.

Much of the "chaos" attributed to al-Assad and Trump actually is being caused by the powers who seek to overthrow them. It's unfortunate (but totally expected) that the MSM won't acknowledge that.

Are You Offended By This Map ???


With President Trump’s visit already riling several other members of Israel’s far-right government related to whether the Western Wall, which Israel captured militarily in 1967, is occupied, Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked found a new reason to be outraged, the map of Israel that the White House has been circulating ahead of Trump’s trip.

The White House map is accurate, and that’s the problem from Shaked’s perspective, as she was expecting the White House map to recognize all of the occupied territories, every scrap of the West Bank and the Golan Heights, as Israeli territory.

http://news.antiwar.com/2017/05/19/israeli-justice-minister-slams-white-house-map-of-israel-for-not-including-west-bank/

What offends me is the crap spewing from Justice (sic) Minister Shaked's mouth. What sort of "justice" can come from Israel's continual obstruction of any peace agreement, illegal occupation and theft of Palestinian land, and expanding construction of illegal settlements?

Ms. Shaked and the rest of her co-conspirators belong in jail cells at the Hague.

And neither Trump nor any US President should EVER recognize these crimes.

The Problem With Joe Biden

Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, "It might have been".
John Greenleaf Whittier

Former VP Joe Biden is still whining about the 2016 election:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-05-19/biden-bashes-hillary-she-was-never-great-candidate-i-was-great-candidate

Dear Joe - You are totally wrong about this. You were NOT a great candidate, because YOU DIDN'T RUN.

And you didn't run because you didn't have the balls to take on Hillary.

So please shut up already.

Fiscal Bloodbath Ahead ???

David Stockman has issued a warning:

“There will be no bid for the stock once the panic sets in. We’re going to hit an air pocket. The S&P 500 is going to drop by hundreds and hundreds of points sometime over the next few months as we drift into this unexpected crisis ...

"I would target sometime between August and November because that’s when the rubber is going to meet the road on a debt ceiling increase when they are out of cash. Washington is going to end up in vicious political conflict over what to do about the debt ceiling ... It is going to be one giant fiscal bloodbath the likes of which we have never seen.”

France Planned A Coup, Too

According to an extraordinary report published yesterday in L’Obs magazine, top members of France’s Socialist Party (PS) government prepared to launch a coup d’├ętat if Marine Le Pen of the neo-fascist National Front (FN) won the May 7 presidential run-off.

The purpose of the coup was not to keep Le Pen from taking office. Rather, it was designed to crush left-wing protests against Le Pen’s victory, impose martial law, and install Le Pen in power in an enforced alliance with a PS-led government.

“No one dared imagine what would happen the day after the run-off if Marine Le Pen won. A social explosion could be expected,” wrote L’Obs. It explained, “The strategists who conceived this plan B supposed that after the National Front victory, the country would be on the verge of chaos: state of shock, Republican demonstrations, but above all extreme violence, especially coming from the ultra left.”

This is very similar to what now is happening in the US. And note well the alleged "chaos" came not from Trump, Le Pen, or their supporters, but from their opponents.

LIARS ALL !!!

I'm Not Voting For The Rock

Apparently Dwayne Johnson wants to run for US President. You can read about it here:

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/19/arts/television/dwayne-johnson-the-rock-president.html

We've already had an actor, and he more or less wrecked our country in the name of "defeating communism".

We've already had several clowns, and they didn't help much either.

We've had many former military officers, and all they did was wage war and bankrupt our Treasury.

We've had academics, and they did some of the dumbest things imaginable.

Nope, I'm not voting for the Rock, or anyone else from the "entertainment" industry.

I'll consider Tulsi Gabbard if she runs.

And, of course, I'd vote for Jesus, but He doesn't need an election to establish His kingdom, does He?

Did Chelsea Manning Actually Change Our World ???

This report lauds the contributions of Chelsea Manning towards changing our world:

https://www.wired.com/2017/05/chelsea-manning-free-leaks-changed/


I congratulate her as well.

But I have many reservations. What actually changed?

Has the US government stopped killing civilians? NO.

Has the US government stopped spying on us? NO.

Has the US government stopped its war mongering? NO.

Is the world safer for transgendered persons? Perhaps.

And are the current "leakers" actually helping We The People? I doubt it.

In spite of all the anti-Trump leaks, Wall Street still has its hooks firmly planted in our economy; Facebook still shamelessly steals our data; the military still consumes our life blood; and the deep state still rules over all of us.

Thank you for your service, Chelsea. I wish there were more people like you, and that their sacrifices could ACTUALLY help us. We've got a long way to go.
