News Of Tomorrow……Today

From the VOMITORIUM

One last post before I shut down for the weekend…….I gave you the news of today back in January 2015….that of the Syrian refugees……I have found some news of tomorrow and I will pass it on…..today.

I have not written much From The VOMITORIUM is a long time…..I guess I need to re-start the series…..after all there is so much puke being passed off as news….it needs to be given the disdain that it deserves.

Our borders are porous at best…..and candidates and bloggers and pundits and just plain d/bags have said that so many things are coming across our borders…..terrorists, rapists, gangsters, disease etc…..I recall about a year ago when the conversation was all about the “illegals” there were people like Beck and Jones that even went so far as to “report” that leprosy was coming in on the backs of these “illegals” and possibly other diseases to infect the population in one way or the other….

I suspect that if we do get some of the Middle East refugees then we will most likely here more of these wild accusations…..

Then I saw a story on the web that made me think that this would be the perfect story to ‘report’ on by these nut cases……

Michigan doctors have an unwanted first on their hands: a patient with bubonic plague. It sounds a lot worse than it is, however. The unidentified patient is recovering and has a form of the plague that isn’t contagious, reports MLive. And Michigan residents will be happy to learn that the person is believed to have picked up the disease not at home but on a recent trip to Colorado, probably from the fleas of an infected animal. This is actually the 14th plague case in the US this year, well above the national average of three, notes the CDC. Four of them have been fatal, and the reason for this year’s uptick isn’t clear.

“Theoretically, the illness can move to bloodstream or to a lung infection, but this (Michigan) individual had localized infection, so there’s no concern about transmission,” the medical director of the Marquette County Health Department tells the Detroit Free Press. Despite its devastation in the Middle Ages, the plague isn’t the dreaded killer it used to be, explains CNN. Antibiotics and antimicrobials can generally conquer it, especially when detected early.

What made me think of this is that Michigan has a large Muslim community and what better way to show your “Christian” love than to blame them for the possible outbreak of the “Black Death”……

So far not much has been said about this situation….but how long will that last with the current attitudes towards the Middle East and Muslims?  And then there is the possibility of thousands of refugees possibly coming to a town near you.

Okay if you are thinking that this is a bit of a stretch…..then I will agree…..but the chattering class has made more out of less.

If you do not like that one…….if it is too far-fetched for you…….. how about the new florist for the White House……

The White House on Thursday named an Iranian-American woman to the position of florist, a job that had been vacant since earlier this year.

Hedieh “Roshan” Ghaffarian will serve as the White House’s new chief floral designer, coming to the job with more than 25 years of experience in the industry, the White House said.

Ghaffarian was born in Tehran and immigrated to California as a young girl with her family following the Iranian Revolution. She started her own flower business in her 20s, the White House said.

This oughta get the haters juices flowing…I can hear the crap now….she is a plant by the Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood (sorry the MB is a Sunni group not Shia)(if that confuses you….then get off your lazy ass and look it up)….this will get the hidden Muslim bullsh*t flowing (it has sort of slowed down in the last year or so)…..etc…etc….etc……..

To my Right wing batcrap crazies……There you go people I have given you ammo for your next crazy bullsh*t conspiracy….try not to screw it up, okay?  You guys know how wrong you can be, right?

Remember!  You heard it here….first!

Go….enjoy your weekend!

America: Time For A Change?

With the approach of the 2016 US election….one might assume that this post is about the possibility of a political change in government…..that is just silly if that is what one is thinking…….. you are mistaken.

As I watched a town hall meeting that Trump had in New Hampshire I got to thinking about what was happening in this country….he decided to have a Q & A session with his supporters to explain some of his ideas….a good idea if that was what had happened……

Donald Trump, apparently forgetting about the time he pressured the president of the United States into producing his birth certificate, failed to correct a man at a town hall event last night who claimed President Obama is a Muslim—and not an American. The questioner at the Rochester, NH, event described Muslims as a “problem” and went on to say, “Our current president is one. We know he’s not even an American. We have training camps growing where they want to kill us. That’s my question: When can we get rid of them?” Trump responded: “A lot of people are saying that and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there. We’re going to be looking at that and a lot of different things,” Politico reports.

When another man stood and said he wanted to “applaud the gentleman who stood and said Obama is a Muslim born abroad and about the military camps,” Trump said, “Right” before moving on, the Hill reports. Hillary Clinton calls Trump’s failure to denounce the remarks “disturbing,” while DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz calls the candidate’s behavior “horrendous” but “unsurprising,” saying “Trump’s racism knows no bounds,” CNN reports. Trump’s campaign manager tells CNN that Trump didn’t hear the remark about Obama being Muslim, and that the real issue is the president’s “war on Christianity.” (A recent poll found that 43% of Republicans still think Obama is a Muslim, which rises to 66% among Trump supporters.

It had not crossed my mind that he may still be one of those “birthers”……I know….silly me.

His lack of a response lead me to start thinking about maybe it is time for a change…..was this person an example of the average Trump supporter?

After all I have read by people writing on Trump….my conclusion would be….yes it is the average.

With that said here is my ideas for an American change……since immigrants will bring down the country because of their demands for the “good life” then why not take down the Statue of Liberty……a bit too extreme for the patriots?   Probably is too extreme I mean we do have and need our symbols………Then at least remove the plaque from the statue…..(not sure of what I am referring)…….let me help the mental process for you…..

The famous plaque attached to the Statue of Liberty is a sonnet…….

New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

That one line is probably the only part that most Americans will know…….”Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,…….”

Remove that plaque and replace it with a sign that reads….”Closed ‘Til Further Notice”….or maybe “Go Away”…….or maybe “Filled To Capacity”……something along that line…….

A bit extreme?  Not really.  This is the perfect cover for the hatred of immigrants/refugees……….since some Americans do not want the country to be all inclusive….it is the perfect solution……the Statue is a symbol of liberty and freedom….take away the temptation for others to want such rights.

You may scoff at this post….but take a look around and listen to the people you encounter……..it is sad…..it is scary…..it is shameful!  At least I am willing to go beyond the echo chamber and do some original thinking….can you?

Syria: Death Of A Cluster F*ck?

My daughter was amazed that I did not post on this story the day it came to light…..I told her I had a good reason for my delay…..

I waited a couple of days before I posted my piece on the information Gen. Austin gave about our dynamite program of rebel training.  I wanted to see if they would do what I thought and as usual they are very predictable.

I thought they they would tie this horrible news to Obama alone….most did exactly that.  Do not mistake my post as a defense of Obama….I think he has failed at international relations….but the situation is not all his to claim.

Before I go further I need to let my reader know what the Hell I am going on about, right?

Testifying to the Senate Armed Services Committee today, Gen. Lloyd Austin, the head of Centcom, admitted that the pro-US Syrian rebel faction, dubbed the New Syrian Force (NSF) in most official contexts, is virtually gone now, with virtually everybody either killed or having fled.

What was initially envisioned as a force of tens of thousands of anti-ISIS fighters amounted to only 54 to start with, and Gen. Austin told Congress today that they are down to “four or five” fighters still active in the field. Needless to say, it’s not going well.

Austin went on to say that the next two classes of NSF fighters are still being trained, though that training too is falling behind schedule. The indications are that these classes aren’t much bigger, 100-120 fighters all told. The pared-back goal of 5,000 fighters is likely still years off.

There you have it……..the colossal waste of time, energy and money training the Right’s favorite cause…training the “moderate” Syrian rebels……

 

If anyone has been paying attention I have warned you that this stupid plan would be just what it is…….a waste of time!

I also was hoping to hear from the two GOP masterminds of this plan….McCain and Graham…..but so far they are busy trying to ignore the information and mouth off about other stuff.

There are other complaints about the program other than the minuscule amount of actually trained rebels…….arming the “good guys”….there are some pretty serious complaints….

I will agree with my Right wing brethren……Obama’s plan sucks!  But it is the GOP’s plan also…the plan, the only plan they would endorse just before an election, also…..

This stupid plan has many cheerleaders……and now it will have many critics.

But with all the defense of this plan there seems to be some sort of intelligent thinking go on is DC…….

In his testimony to Congress yesterday, Gen. Lloyd Austin, the commander of Centcom, admitted that the US-trained New Syrian Force (NSF) rebels amount to only four or five existing fighters in Syria. While it’s been no secret the “create a new rebel faction” strategy failed, and officials are confirming planned changes.

According to those officials, they intend to totally abandon the “rebel” conceit and stop having the NSF fight against ISIS as a distinct force, and will instead load them down with US communications equipment and have them gather intelligence and pick targets for US airstrikes.

To that end, the intention is to get these people “embedded” into various other fighting forces, both secular rebels and the Kurdish YPG. The Kurds, a much bigger faction, will probably be the bulk of this embedding, though they aren’t really “rebels” and are fighting alongside the Syrian military in Hasakeh to defend the city from ISIS.

To abandon a failed strategy seems the prudent thing to do when the program is a dismal failure……however the new plan is about to open a whole new set of variables……especially with Turkey now part of the coalition and involved in the fighting.

Is the Presidential Race Really Just an Expensive Reality Show?

YEP!

The GOP gathering of candidates has been called many things…..sideshow, circus, clown act, etc……..

The media has done what they wanted….the popularity of reality TV is a great revenue generator….the MSM has turned the whole GOP election cycle into one large reality show……(Politics be damned)…..

And sadly Americans approve……

What should be a discussion about policy is instead pitched as a prizefight.

F*ck Israel! (Can You Hear Me Now?)

The deal with Iran over nukes is going to go further….and  as predicted the GOP will not go silently into the night…..they have just got to keep playing games with nukes and conflict…..there newest attempt to throw a monkey wrench into the work is…….

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R – KY) is facing yet another losing vote this week on the bill aiming to block the Iran nuclear deal, with the exact same vote that failed to end the filibuster last week expected to come along again with the same results.

Sen. McConnell is trying to force the Democrats to back off the filibuster and allow the vote, even though there again, he would face a defeat for falling well short of a veto-proof majority on killing the deal in the face of a promised presidential veto. He insists he’s going to get it “or else.”

The or else part is that if he doesn’t get this vote, McConnell says he intends to force a vote on an amendment to the upcoming vote on the Iran sanctions bill that would require any easing of sanctions (which the US is required to do under the deal) to Iran agreeing to formally recognize Israel as a “Jewish state.”

A Jewish State?  Right to exist….okay….but who in Hell does not know that Israel is a Jewish state?  This is pathetic!

Again….I reiterate…..F*CK ISRAEL!

Can Israel do anything on their own that does not involve killing innocents?  If Israel wants international recognition then maybe acting like a civilized government would do the trick for them.  Why does the US have to do it for them?

Israel…the only country in the Middle East with a nuke capability needs the help of its paid agents in Washington to do the work for them in the world of diplomacy.

Here’s a crazy idea….they want recognition then how about they recognize the state of Palestine on the West bank?

Sounds pretty simple to me.  But then I am NOT paid by Israel now am I?
