An Explanation

Closing Thought–28May21

In the past couple of months readership has fallen off of IST….I hope it is because that people are starting to get out and about and chase life and not that people are starting to care less about the events in this country.

So I have decided to cutback on my time on the blog…..I will post one or two posts daily as opposed to the 4 or 5 from months past…..plus there is a situation (will explain that a little later) at home and my garden needs attention plus my best friend MoMo deserves more attention.

Again I am not leaving or changing anything other than the number of posts published per day.

I would like to thank all those diehard IST readers and let them know that I appreciate their visits and comments so very much.

Be Safe…..Be Well….

The Second Coming!

But this time one will become two……

Sorry guys this is not some fanciful Biblical tale.

The Lord High Prophet of the lunatic Right has died….and the Far Right faithful have waited for his return….and now their worship and diligence has been rewarded…..two will appear to take the ‘idols’ place…….

It’s going to take two people to try to fill the radio void of Rush Limbaugh on the right. Premiere Networks says Clay Travis, 42, and Buck Sexton, 39, will co-host a show in the noon to 3pm ET time slot, reports the Wall Street Journal. Both are radio veterans, though Travis might be better known as the founder of the sports website Outkick.com. The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show will begin airing June 21 across the country. Premiere has largely been airing old segments of Limbaugh’s show (supplemented by live updates with guest hosts) since he died of lung cancer in February, and the Journal notes that those are bringing in a respectable 75% to 80% of the usual audience.

“We’re not going to replace Rush Limbaugh, we’re going to have an evolution of the show with fresh voices—those that grew up on Rush and admired him,” says Julie Talbott, president of Premiere Networks, which is owned by iHeartMedia. The Hollywood Reporter notes that Travis and Sexton will have an additional challenge. Radio stations around the country already have begun giving the Limbaugh time slot, or parts of it, to others, particularly Fox News regular Dan Bongino

The question is will they be a conservative talk show or will QAnon invade rationality on the news airways?

My guess is they will drink the QAnon kool-aid and become just another source for lies and misinformation that will continuously stoke the fires to stupidity and ignorance.

The League Of Democracies

This is a brilliant idea (sarcasm) of the Biden admin….bringing together all the democracies in a summit atmosphere…..I comment on the idea when it was first announced…..https://lobotero.com/2021/02/03/a-summit-for-democracy/

This sounds like a con job as usual….it will be nothing more than rhetoric from the Cold War….and will not really be about ‘democracy’ at all…..

Reliable reports continue to circulate that President Biden intends to call for a “summit of democracies” to convene this summer, although concerns that such a large gathering might become a super-spreader of the coronavirus may delay those plans. The implicit goal is to create a political, diplomatic (and eventually a military) bloc of democratic countries to contain the power and influence of the two leading authoritarian states, Russia and China, and to counter the supposedly surging appeal of authoritarianism globally. It is a concept that is deeply flawed both conceptually and in terms of execution. Indeed, the pursuit of this pernicious chimera has the potential to poison America’s already fragile relations with several important countries and to heighten risks to the security and well-being of the American people.

Biden and key advisers highlighted their wish to create a league of democracies (under Washington’s benevolent leadership, of course) even before the administration took office. Biden himself gave the proposal considerable prominence during the 2020 presidential election campaign. He and other officials also have exhorted Washington’s existing democratic alliance partners to create a common front against both Moscow and Beijing.

In remarks delivered on December 28, the president-elect stated that “as we compete with China and hold China’s government accountable for its abuses on trade, technology, human rights, and other fronts, our position will be much stronger when we build coalitions of like-minded partners and allies to make common cause with us in defense of our shared interests and values.” Biden added that “on any issue that matters to the U.S.-China relationship,… we [the United States] “are stronger and more effective when we are flanked by nations that share our vision for the future of our world.”

The Fraudulent ‘League of Democracies’ Scheme

This is a waste of time and energy……for the US turns a blind eye to nations that pretend to be a democracy while committing heinous crimes against people.

US needs to cease being a huge hypocrite on the world stage…..how can we truly be a world leader when the word ‘democracy’ means NOTHING to us?

This is a pathetic attempt to bolster the station of the M-IC…..not about the people of any given country.

It is about profit over people…..the usual crap we pretend is democracy.

A League of Democracies is a huge con job.
