Duterte Seeks Alliances with Russia, China

While you were watching the “Frick and Frack Show” and the battling babble….the world got a little more interesting…..

For decades the Us has had a military deployment in the Philippines……mostly Air Force and Navy….and recently the new president of the country, Mr. Personality, Duterte, has told the US to take a hike…..and is looking for new “friends”……

PRESIDENT Duterte said on Tuesday he would build by next year “new alliances” with China and Russia to cushion the fallout from the possible withdrawal of the United States from the Philippines.

In a speech in Pampanga province, Mr. Duterte said Filipinos would have to make a small sacrifice for what he had previously declared “crossing the Rubicon” in his ties with the United States while pursuing partnerships with its rival countries or what he called countries on the “other side of the ideological barrier.”

This is significant because of the situation in the South China Sea, where China is making its military presence known…..

This situation could become a lot uglier in the very near future…..

Israel’s $38 Billion Scam

We all by now have heard about the obscene amount of aid that the US will send to Israel……all $38 billion…….but that may not be the end……

You see Israel wants more…always more….and the sad thing they will probably get their wish for the cowards in Congress will do whatever Israel wants.

I read an article in the Unz Review….keep in mind that it has a traditional Libertarian lean to it…….

As an American it is difficult to imagine a more unseemly bit of political theater playing out than Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s appearance before his cabinet to claim that he had gotten every last dollar of military assistance out of the Obama Administration. Netanyahu argued that he had obtained all that was on the table, adding that his bad blood with President Barack Obama had not proven to be detrimental in the bilateral negotiations that had been ongoing for more than a year. The Prime Minister was on the defensive because some of his critics claimed that he might have gotten $100 million more per annum, admittedly chump change on top of the $38 billion over ten years that the Memorandum of Understand will provide Netanyahu from the U.S. Treasury.

I say it again…FUCK ISRAEL!

It is time for these bastards to stand on their own or go down swinging…..

And NO I am not an anti-Semite……you can despise Israel without feeling the same about Jews….any debt that the US owes this country has long been paid….if they want our help then time for them to pony up….a tit for tat……

More From America’s Mayor

Remember Rudy Giuliani? After his “bravery” after the 9/11 attacks he was dubbed America’s mayor…..and he has used that situation to make himself millions and access to multi-media sites…

But in the last few years he has been talking smack and looking about as crazy as that bitch Geller……and after the latest presidential debate he is at it again…..this time he is giving Donald Trump, he is a supporter and endorser, some advice about the upcoming debates that remain…..

Donald Trump thinks that he was the clear winner of Monday’s debate and that moderator Lester Holt did a “great job” with “very fair” questions. But if Rudy Giuliani were Trump, he’d take a hard pass on the last two debates, per the Hill. Or at least not “unless I was promised the journalist would act like a journalist, and not an ignorant fact check,” the former NYC mayor said after the debate, as shown in a Bloomberg video. (Starting around the 16:15 mark.) “My advice would be the moderator would have to promise they’d be a moderator.” Giuliani especially took umbrage at Holt’s “outrageous” input during a discussion on the controversial stop-and-frisk policy Giuliani put into place while he was New York’s mayor (current Mayor Bill de Blasio has since nixed the program).

Holt said the practice had been ruled “unconstitutional” in New York, which hit a nerve with Giuliani. “If journalism has ethics, Lester Holt [was] unethically interfering in the area of law he knows nothing about,” Giuliani said, adding, “It is not unconstitutional.” (The Hill notes it was ruled unconstitutional by a circuit court judge but was never given the final word by a higher court. See LawNewz for a more in-depth explanation.) “If you wonder why Donald Trump thinks that the press is a left-wing basically oriented group, Lester Holt proved it tonight,” Giuliani said, per Politico. (Giuliani’s take on Black Lives Matter: It’s “inherently racist.”)

He is NO longer the sharpest pencil in the box….and if Trump takes his advice then he will join him in that tag….it would be politically unwise to follow anything this mental midget has to say…..especially with the election so close.

‘there’s no real assimilation’

This press is an op-ed that I wrote for my friends at Ace News Room…..the US election of 2016 has had it all this time…immigrants and terrorism……fear and anguish seem to be the big pulls in the media coverage…..

The biggest fear that is being slung around the internet is that refugees will bring with them all the terror that others are experiencing…..

After the tragedy of Orlando was playing out in the media…I recall an interview by FOX with Trump I believe it was Hannity….when asked Trump said that US Muslims have not done very well…

Nothing that I offer my readers will change anyone’s mind….but hopefully they will read and try to understand the situation from one of knowledge…..

Dr. Jill Stein– Rebel With a Cause

As an ex-rebel myself I am always impressed by people that stand up for what they believe….in 2016 that person is Dr. Jill Stein……

The first inkling that she was a person that would not shrink from confrontation…..

If the man won’t let Jill Stein participate in Monday’s presidential debate, then Jill Stein will just hold her own debate. Politico reports the Green Party candidate will hold a “Let Jill Debate” protest outside the first showdown between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton at Hofstra University in New York then follow it with a “People’s Debate” on social media. Earlier in the week, the Stein campaign had mulled having 100 supporters risk arrest in an attempt to “escort” their candidate onto the debate stage, according to the Guardian. Neither Stein nor Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson were polling high enough—the cutoff is 15% nationally—to qualify for the debate. Johnson says he’ll be watching the debate and live-tweeting it.

Then on the night of the first presidential debate she made good on her threat…..

Green Party candidate Jill Stein was removed from the Hofstra University campus for the second election in a row on Monday. Stein—who was arrested before a presidential debate in 2012—was met by police and campus security after she boarded a media bus to the university ahead of the Hillary Clinton-Donald Trump debate and USA Today reporter Eliza Collins tweeted about it. Stein had planned to hold a “Let Jill Debate” protest outside the event, which she and Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson were excluded from.

Officials say Stein was removed because she didn’t have the proper credentials. “She was on the college campus, we asked to verify for proper credentials, she did not have them, and she was nicely escorted off the campus,” a police spokeswoman tells CNN. Stein went on to live-tweet the debate, offering her own answers, as well as lines like: “I’d be terrified with Trump’s finger on the button but I’d also be terrified with Clinton’s finger on the button.” Johnson also live-tweeted the Hofstra debate. “Neither of these candidates is willing to stand up for free trade. Why am I not at these debates?” he wondered.

Good for her!

Personally I feel that parties that give candidates at every election should be included….especially those with national attention regardless of the poll numbers.

There should be an independent group that controls the debates…..the media is NOT a good source of unbiased BS…….there should be a switch that cuts the candidate off when they digress into campaign posturing….issues only needs to be the rule.

 

Which Candidate Can Better Exploit Our Irrational Fear of Terrorism?

The first presidential debate is now in the history books…..why no one knows…..other than it is an election and we expect the mental midgets to go after each other in a debate or two.

But enough of the trivial bullshit from either of these two dingle berries…..but thanks to the media and people that are afraid of their own shadow…..but the first debate has a segment called “Securing America”……and once again it was about instilling fear not offering solutions…..

Politico (9/20/16) frames the terrorism issue as “who has the upper hand.”

The media’s tendency to focus on horserace issues—who’s up and who’s down, what the cosmetics are of an event rather than the substance—is routinely derided by media critics, and mocking it has become something of an election year tradition. But one 2016 topic in particular, terrorism, has become the hot horserace topic of the year in a way that goes beyond the silly to the potentially damaging:

The candidates had their 15 minutes in the light talking shit……and both showed that they are more than willing to exploit the irrational fear that some Americans harbor about terrorist or Muslims or Hispanics a or any other brown skin individual…..

Most of the people that are fighting terrorism in its many forms are calling for calmer heads…..say that were to happen…..would it collect any votes?

An explosion on the streets of Manhattan, pipe bombs in New Jersey, and a shootout with a terrorist suspect: a jittery election, filled with hyperbole, just grew more breathless.

Of course most of that hype has emerged from the mouth of Donald Trump, and he embraced the emergence of a new terror campaign well before officials confirmed Saturday’s explosion as a bomb.

Whether this helps or hurts Trump’s candidacy depends a lot on whether you are already primed for the politics of fear. If Trump and Clinton sound like they’re talking to two different audiences, that’s because the polls suggest they really are.

The easy answer is NO!

The truth is the M-IC will exploit our fear to make themselves richer and more powerful in DC……by giving in to that fear we will make them the only game in town.

We have a handful of debates remaining….does anyone think that a truthful answer will be given?
