Closing Thought #2–18Jul18

Today there are 2…count them….2…..Closing Thoughts…..some days are like that……

Okay the truth is that I think most of the Right is so full of shit that their eyes are brown……there are some that are fuller than others and I have a couple of the brown eyed d/bags……

First is Infowars front man Alex Jones…..he has been full of shit for years now but yesterday he had to show me just how ignorant this tool is…..

“They tested the internet kill switch today so they could find out how long they can keep it down without people bitching about whatever it is. And the biggest story people would bitch about, the biggest story that would ever get researched in internet history, bigger than Janet Jackson’s tit, would be ‘Donald Trump gets assassinated’ and that’s it,” he said.

Jones also reiterated this same line of conspiracy theory this morning in a special broadcast, during which he claimed that the lights turning off in the White House while Trump spoke to reporters yesterday coincided with Breitbart and Drudge report going offline and was proof of a deep state “internet kill switch.”

“The lights go out, but at the same time DrudgeReport.com, Infowars.com, ZeroHedge.com, and Breitbart.com, and others selectively had their DNSs turned off where no one can go to the websites for one hour—60 minutes exactly,—turned off in a statement [meant to signal] that ‘we have the internet kill switch.’ And Trump needs to take back control,” Jones said.

I have read a couple of blogs that believe this stuff….that someone really cares what they are writing……and throws the “kill switch”…..

But the best Babbling Baffoon is Naysayer Rick Wiles and his latest prediction……

End Times broadcaster and radical conspiracy theorist Rick Wiles used his “TruNews” television program last night to warn that MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow had signaled that a violent coup will take place within the next 72 hours during which President Trump and his family will be dragged out of the White House and beheaded

“She was spewing out, last night, calls for revolution,” Wiles said. “She was telling the left, ‘Take a deep breath, we’re at the moment, it’s coming, we’re almost there, we’re going to remove him from the White House.’”

“We’re about 72 hours—possibly 72 hours—from a coup,” Wiles warned. “Be prepared that you’re going to turn on the television and see helicopters hovering over the roof of the White House with men clad in black repelling down ropes, entering into the White House. Be prepared for a shoot out in the White House as Secret Service agents shoot commandos coming in to arrest President Trump. That is how close we are to a revolution. Be prepared for a mob— a leftist mob—to tear down the gates, the fence at the White House and to go into the White House and to drag him out with his family and decapitate them on the lawn of the White House.”

Start your clock…..and in 72 hours we will have an execution on the White House lawn and a coup……keep in mind that this slug has White House press credentials…..

Oh wait!  Remember yesterday when Dear Leader explained that his “would” should have been “wouldn’t”…..but wait a day later and he is back to the same bullsh*t….

Trump is back to defending Russia, stating during a meeting of his Cabinet the absolute lie that Russia is no longer targeting the United States.

Asked by ABC reporter Cecilia Vega whether “Russia is still targeting the U.S.,” Trump answered, “No.”

Then he launched into a defensive and incoherent rant. “We’re doing very well with Russia,” he insisted. “There’s been no president, ever, as tough as I have been on Russia. All you have to do is look at the numbers, look at what we’ve done, look at sanctions, look at ambassadors not there, look, unfortunately, at what happened in Syria recently.”

Trump didn’t explain which numbers or ambassadors prove his supposed toughness.

“And I think President Putin knows that better than anybody,” he continued. “Certainly a lot better than the media. He understands it. And he’s not happy about it. And he shouldn’t be happy about it. Because there’s never been a president as tough on Russia as I have been.”

This “genius” is just too good to ignore…..

By The Way…..you can tell when Trump is lying he folds his arms over his chest….check out the tape……

Now was that not worth a little extra time?

That is my stuff for today…….I do love the Right wing imbeciles they just keep proving the low IQ of the people that follow these toads.

The World Of Tomorrow

Today is Sunday and I will be relaxing with the World Cup championship…..but until the game starts I will do my posting……

I wish that this was my lame attempt to review a movie either past or present (I am not a very good reviewer) but this post is about the predictions of what the world will look like in 2050…..

The demand for predicting the future seems to grow rapidly in periods of crisis. Currently, long-term forecasts are emerging from every quarter. I would like to incorporate some of these projections while venturing my own for what the world would look like in 2050 — primarily from the viewpoint of power.

Population and GDP trends will bear the most direct influence on national power. Based on the 2017 Revision of the U.N. World Population Prospects, India, China, Nigeria, the United States, Indonesia, Pakistan and Brazil appear set to become the world’s “G7” in terms of population by 2050.

Meanwhile, according to The Economist Intelligence Unit’s 2015 long-term macroeconomic forecast, the world’s major economic powers of 2050 will be China, the U.S., India, Indonesia, Japan, Germany and Brazil, in that order.

That would make for a good participation post for my readers….so if you would like to look into the future and tell us what you think the world of tomorrow will look like.

Trying To Reason With The Hurricane Season–2018

Every year the residents of the Gulf Coast wait for the news of the upcoming hurricane season…..a report on what we can expect to be the “norm”…..not a big deal for most Americans but those that live on the Gulf Coast have had too many disasters to ignore the predictions…..

We wait so that we can plan out our year with supplies, escape routes, etc…….everything we will need to keep our families safe in case another Katrina is waiting to crap on the Gulf Coast……

The 2018 forecast is out….it could be revised before the start of the season on 01June……..

It may seem like we just said goodbye to Harvey, Irma, and Maria, but the new hurricane season is near its official start of June 1. With that, Colorado State University is out with its annual Atlantic forecast, and the season looks to be a little busier than usual, reports the Weather Channel:

  • 3 big ones: The forecast calls for 14 named storms, seven hurricanes, and three major hurricanes among those seven. All are above the 30-year average of 12 named storms, six hurricanes, and two major hurricanes.
  • Last year: We ended up with 17 named storms, 10 hurricanes, and six major hurricanes. (The latter means category 3 and up.)
  • 2 factors: The Washington Post notes that CSU will update its forecast on the eve of the season, and the story explains that the development of El Nino (or lack thereof) and surface temperatures in the North Atlantic could play big roles in determining how severe the new season is.

Now we must wait for the first to approach and make our plans from there……

That is it for today and the garden awaits…..be well, be safe…….chuq

2018 Global Outlook

There is a lot of stuff that could happen in this year…….I am worried about the guy in the White House….this guy is impetuous at best and foolish….his need for flattery will prove to be fatal to American foreign policy……

There are a few things we need to watch……

http://www.defenseone.com/ideas/2018/01/year-ahead-ten-stories-watch-2018/144874/

  • China: Filling a gap vacated by the US, China is extending its influence “with less resistance than ever before,” threatening economies and suggesting friction with the US.
  • Geopolitical accidents: With less trust among actors, missteps in North Korea, Syria, and Russia could lead to confrontations.
  • Global tech cold war: The US and China are seeking new technologies in “the world’s biggest fight over economic power,” while other countries fight for market dominance.
  • Mexico: The outcome of a NAFTA renegotiation and a presidential election in July “both carry significant market risks.”
  • Iran: Tensions will rise as the country pushes back against US efforts to curtail its regional influence. If the US-Iran nuclear deal falters, the Middle East could be thrown into disarray.
  • Erosion of institutions: “The expansion of an increasingly toxic antiestablishment sentiment is starting to erode the legitimacy of political institutions in established democracies,” making for less stability.
  • Protectionism 2.0: A continuing shift toward a new form of protectionism that “generates more acrimony because it is often targeted at political adversaries” poses risks for trade in 2018.

International conflicts the media needs to watch……

It’s not all about Donald Trump.

That’s a statement more easily written than believed, given the U.S. president’s erratic comportment on the world stage — his tweets and taunts, his cavalier disregard of international accords, his readiness to undercut his own diplomats, his odd choice of foes, and his even odder choice of friends. And yet, a more inward-looking United States and a greater international diffusion of power, increasingly militarized foreign policy, and shrinking space for multilateralism and diplomacy are features of the international order that predate the current occupant of the White House and look set to outlast him.

World affairs will start to move and the pace will increase……until they get out of control as far as it goes for the US.

Is A Second Cold War Coming?

I like political predictions….they are much more interesting than the ones about the end of the world…..this is a off handed prediction about the world in 30 years…..I found it interesting……

After the 19th national congress of the Chinese Communist Party in October, one may discern Premier Xi Jinping’s vision of the emerging New World Order.

By 2049, the centennial of the triumph of Communist Revolution, China shall have become the first power on earth. Her occupation and humiliation by the West and Japan in the 19th and 20th centuries will have become hated but ancient history

America will have been pushed out of Asia and the western Pacific back beyond the second chain of islands, Taiwan will have been returned to the motherland, South Korea and the Philippines neutralized, Japan contained. China’s claim to all the rocks, reefs and islets in the South China Sea will have been recognized by all current claimants.

Now the America First bunch will dispute what this person is seeing…..but any normal person would watch China and their policy…..China is moving slowly but surely and is firming its position up as it goes…..something Fearless Leader should aspire to……

Your Day May Be Cut Short

Hi everyone……it is a Sunday in the South….a bit brisk but nothing we cannot handle….this will be my only post day and if the prediction is true it may well be my last post forever…..I shall explain.

Once again the kooks are at it….prediction of our end of days……

Ever heard of the Planet Nibiru?  It is the 9th planet that so many whack-a-doodles embrace as a fact….we have some Christian numerologists that are at it again…..if you recall 23 September was going to be the end of it all…well that slip by and they are at it again….

After the apocalypse did not occur on September 23 as Christian numerologist David Meade predicted, some now claim we can now expect the End Days to occur this Sunday, November 19th.

“Nibiru ‘truthers’ claim that NASA has conspired to ‘hide the truth about the mystery planet from the general population,” The Daily Starreported. “Also known as ‘Planet X’, Nibiru is believed to be a planet on the edge of our solar system that orbits the sun every 3,600 years.”

Past orbits allegedly changed the orbits of other planets in our solar system, the conspiracy theorists claim.

“This disruption, it is claimed, will be marked either by a direct collision with the Earth or apocalyptic weather patterns across our planet’s surface,” the Daily Star explained.

This is a developing story, Raw Story will provide breaking news updates if either apocalyptic weather patterns or an extinction level planetary collision occurs.

Everybody please sit back and enjoy the last days on earth….or just sit back and make fun of idiots that believe this crap….matters not….for tomorrow will come and I will return with my usual array of stuff…..Peace…..chuq

Repent! The End Is Near!

I am glad it is the weekend…..the news has become mundane, redundant and juvenile….it is getting hard to find stories of interests to report back to my readers.  The weekend allows me to back away and think of anything but the playground mentality of world affairs.

Saturday and my weekend begins and the end of the world is the furthest thing from my mind.

But just when I was expecting to write about something cool or interesting I spot this piece about the world ending today.

Continuous Storms, heavy rains, earthquakes, fires, mud slides all seems a bit much.   Does the end approach?

Best I can say is report what I read……

If you had big plans this weekend, David Meade regrets to inform you that the world will be ending Saturday. Meade, a Christian numerologist and self-described “researcher,” says Sept. 23 is foretold in the Bible’s Book of Revelation as the day a series of catastrophic events will begin, and as a result, “a major part of the world will not be the same,” the Washington Post reports. The Bible prophecies a woman “clothed with the sun” and a “crown of 12 stars” giving birth to a boy who will “rule all the nations” while she fights off a seven-headed dragon. The woman, Meade says, is the constellation Virgo, which on Saturday will be positioned under nine stars and three planets, per Popular Mechanics. The baby boy will be the planet Jupiter, which will be moving out of Virgo on that night.

According to Meade, who says he studied astronomy at an unspecified university in Kentucky, the great change in our world will be the result of the arrival of Nibiru, a planet famous in conspiracy circles but which astronomers say doesn’t exist. David Morrison, a senior space scientist at NASA, says that if Nibiru were really on a collision course with Earth, we would have seen it by now. “It would be bright,” he says, per the Post. “It would be easily visible to the naked eye.” But that’s not dissuading Meade, who points to the fact that Sept. 23 falls 33 days after last month’s total solar eclipse as proof of his prophecy. “Jesus lived for 33 years. The name Elohim, which is the name of God to the Jews, was mentioned 33 times [in the Bible],” Meade says. “It’s a very biblically significant, numerologically significant number.”

Let’s end there…..if all goes to plan then tomorrow will not matter……

My guess is that I will see you guys bright and early Sunday….
