Closing Thought–12Dec17

NYC had another attempted terrorist attack yesterday…..the problem was the guy had the IQ of a turnip and did more damage to himself than to any people near-by…….

The president made a comment……..all I can do is laugh…..Fearless Fosdick is as clueless as always.

Now on to today’s closing thought…….

We all remember 9/11 if for no other reason than it is all Guiliani can talk about when in front of a camera…….and most will also remember the Boston Marathon bombing, right?

Let me say before I go any further that I cannot verify all this info so I am just putting this out there for some thoughts….by posting this I by NO means think this is entirely accurate…….

This is a piece written on the blog for the Institute of Political Economy…..remember the Tsarnaev name….it is the name of the brothers that committed the crime (Boston Marathon bombing)….or did they?

FBI Evidence Proves Innocence of Accused Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

Paul Craig Roberts

I have been contacted by attorney John Remington Graham, a member in good standing of the bar of the Minnesota Supreme Court and the United States Supreme Court. He informs me that acting in behalf of Maret Tsanaeva, the aunt of the accused Tsamaev brothers and a citizen of the Kyrgyz Republic where she is qualified to practice law, he has assisted her in filing with the US District Court in Boston a pro se motion, including an argument of amicus curiae, and an affidavit of Maret Tsarnaeva. The presiding judge has ordered that these documents be included in the formal record of the case so they will be publicly accessible. The documents are reproduced below.

Interesting read…..is this for real or is it just another conspiracy theory?

Something to think about before I return in the morrow with more thought provoking stuff……chuq

December 11, 1941

A day late!

Thanx to my medical thing I was late posting this small history lesson…..I apologize for my tardiness……

Four days after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Germany’s Hitler made his first grand mistake……

Four days after Pearl Harbor, in arguably the most insane and pivotal decision in history, Adolf Hitler needlessly declared war on the United States.

December 7, 1941, a distracted Hitler was at “Wolf’s Lair” his gloomy, dank Eastern Front field headquarters in Prussia, absorbing the reality that his Russian campaign, launched with stunning success and fanfare less than six months earlier, had permanently stalled within sight of Moscow, a mere five miles from the Kremlin’s Onion Domes—on December 2.

A Hitler “oh shit” moment!

The Morals And The Virtue

Today is the day……the final minutes of the Alabama election…..after tonight the news can move on to the next story they would like to beat to death…..what fresh Hell will suck the air out of the news?

You know when the news is so concerned about a candidate and his horse then the whole of society needs a re-make. What is by-product of horse digestion called?

But until that time…..how about a short quiz?

What would you think if I wrote…..”a ship named ‘Monkey Business'”?

Think back to 1987…….presidential politics……..come up with anything?

Gary Hart……his presidential dreams were brought down by a photo of a blond sitting on his knee…….keep that in mind and now fast forward to today……look at the president not even a audio tape could bring him down and now some big eared judge from Alabama with 8 accusations of sexual content and he is leading in the polls…….what happened to America from 1987 to 2017?

What counts as virtue among Western elites? As Aristotle teaches, if you can identify what a society considers to be virtuous or good, you can understand the moral outlook of that society’s institutions, from its schools to its foreign policy. One needs only to study any gathering of American elite culture to see that virtue, traditionally centered in personal character, has become redefined as public sympathy for humanitarian causes. When watching any cultural awards program, for example, one is treated to a parade of “beautiful” souls voicing support for myriad progressive causes. This moral preening has become so commonplace that a term has developed to characterize it: “virtue signaling.”

The West’s moral outlook is now animated by the widespread belief that virtue is measured by one’s professed sympathy for causes such as combatting homelessness, extending civil rights for various protected groups, and decrying poverty in far-off places. The more publicly ostentatious one is in attaching oneself to these causes, the more virtue one is assigned by our elite culture.

I cannot say about western society but it sure as well is ruining the US of A.

Government By Revenge–Part Two

Today begins an end to the Moore thing….Trump is clueless like so many of his supporters…..

At what minute does the Fearless Leader realize what he is doing?

Does he really think he can keep it up….this government by revenge.

Yes…revengeHe spends his waking hours Tweeting his vial, disgusting thoughts about other Americans as well as international leaders…..

I wrote a post recently…..I guess it would be Part One to this post…..

Remember when the Repubs bought into the conspiracy that the president, Obama, and the IRS were out to get conserv groups? Oh yeah that was a meme for a long time and it was spread like so much manure on a field. It was pure conserv bullsh*t.

Others are starting to speak up as well…….

Looking back at the last tumultuous year, to me, one of the saddest aspects of the Trump candidacy and presidency is that both in part were built from one of the basest of human impulses: revenge.

We’re taught that ideally, the desire to run for office should reflect a commitment to public service. And we know that the reality is far too often otherwise, running to slake a thirst for power and money that overpowers the greater good.

Yet to seek elected office for revenge, to use it to get back at someone or inflict harm on them or anyone associated with them seems in some ways even worse; shabby, petty and immoral.

His latest Tweet is not something new….he spends his valuable time spewing hate and vile…..

That is NO way to run a country….but yet that is exactly what we have going on here in the US…….a country being run by REVENGE.

And what better tool for revenge than Twitter…..and Fearless Fosdick uses it as well as any authoritarian.

Where The Hell Are The Troops?

I have been writing about the deployment of our military for many years……we have troops basically fighting all over the world…..we have about 800 military bases in 70 countries…..but there is 44,000 troops deployed and no one knows where the Hell they are…..I know….say what?

When the Pentagon wants to mislead the public about where US troops are, generally speaking, they just lie. Yet sometimes the number of troops is just too big to claim as a rounding error, and questions start happening.

This week, the focus is on over 44,000 US military personnel deployed to “unknown,” which immediately raises red flags, because that’s not a place. Pentagon officials, however, say there is “no good way” to describe where they are.

Pentagon spokesman Col. Rob Manning, on the one hand, presented this as an “operational security” and “denying the enemy any advantage,” including, it seems providing any specifics on who “the enemy” at this point even is.

At the same time, Manning presented this as simply a limitation of the Pentagon’s current capabilities, and that there is literally “no personnel system” in the Pentagon that tracks where everyone is, and they just stick everyone else in “unknown” so the number of troops they officially have balances out with the number of troops deployed in actual, real places.

Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon went a step further, saying that the figures are flat out fiction, and were “not meant to represent an accurate accounting of troops currently deployed to any location. They should not be relied upon for a current picture of what is going on.”

Secretary of Defense James Mattis suggested that the situation was complicated, but also that he wasn’t entirely comfortable with the lack of accounting for troops abroad, saying at some point he was going to try to put everything together and figure out where everyone really is.

Now we will wait to see if someone in the bowels of the Pentagon knows where these troops are…..maybe Fearless Fosdick has an idea…..I mean that moron has knowledge that no one else has……
