We are Lovin' Ourselves Some War! - The Military Industrial Complex

The change of tune in this country over the past ten days has been appalling and, frankly, terrifying. Before I launch into specifics, let me just say that when your cheerleaders include Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Bill O'Reilly (just to name a handful), and when Brian Williams calls the sight of missiles being launched "beautiful", you should stop dead-in-your-tracks!

People who are blindly playing "Follow the Leader" will argue with the following source. However, I am trying to draw your attention to the FOOTAGE provided in the this video. The "White Helmets" are notorious for staging false-flag attacks:

If readers refuse to believe their lying eyes, perhaps this fourteen-page report written by a Pentagon MIT engineer will be more persuasive:

We should all be asking ourselves why Trump hit the airbase within seventy-two hours of this "attack". Why the rush? He could not have waited for the dust to clear? He could not have waited to get all of the facts, and not just what his neocon/CFR "advisers" said? It is no small detail to note General McMaster is the protege of one General David Petraeus who, without question, provided sarin gas to the "rebels" in 2013. It is also no small detail that John McCain visited his "rebels" just prior to the incident in Idlib. It is also no small detail that the "rebels" (AKA, the Islamic State) have staged FIFTY-TWO such incidents. The next link is an excellent summary of everything I found in my own, personal investigation over the past week-and-a-half:

For those who are still under the delusion that the "White Helmets" are humanitarian aid workers, please see the following:

Here is an excellent analysis of the precarious situation we are now in:

Meanwhile, yesterday we dropped the MOAB on Afghanistan, which earned Trump thunderous applause. The MOAB is a $30 million bomb, and what did we get out of it? Thirty-six dead Islamic State fighters. Thirty-six. That is a cost of $833,333.33 per person. Not very cost-efficient for a businessman. The fact is, the MOAB was not meant to kill members of the Islamic State; instead, it was another "message" to North Korea. 

As people worldwide wait to see if Kim Jong Un really is going to launch another missile tomorrow, I find myself wishing I did not have to wake up in the morning to find out what happened. This situation is frightening. We have gone from "America first!" to World Police in less than two weeks...and people who are usually sane are actually applauding! Russia is already angry with us over Syria. Have we forgotten they are allies with North Korea? What if Kim Jong Un launches on Saturday (and he likely will)? If we were SMART we would simply shoot the damned thing down. But it does not appear anyone in the West Wing is being smart. Instead, I expect to see a barrage of Tomahawks unloaded on the country. Does anyone think Kim Jong Un is just going to stand there and let them fall on his head? Of course not. He will be safe in some bunker. Instead, we will kill a bunch of people who have no other choice but to follow the madman's orders. And he will live to do it again. So, we accomplish NOTHING...except more ire from Russia and...HELLO!!!!!...Iran. 

Has everyone forgotten Iran? You know, the people with whom we made a "deal", whose sanctions have been lifted, who were given palates loaded with cash? Those people? What are they going to do? 

We are teetering on the brink of another all-out world war. Someone really needs to get Jack Kennedy, Bob McNamara, Bobby Kennedy, Ken O'Donnell, and the rest of the sane people from 1962 out of their graves and put them back in the White House before the nukes start flying! 

Eisenhower warned us about the Military Industrial Complex. Trump has just given them "full authorization". If you are not shaking uncontrollably by now, I cannot help you.

Thanksgiving: A Lesson in Gratitude

I found myself becoming irritated yesterday as I watched people I know on social media talking about the various plans they had for today. ...
