The one thing I can’t stand about liberals is how whenever North Korea is brought up their brains turn off. I cannot understand why. It reminds me alot of Saddam. Alot of liberals said they opposes the Iraq War cause Saddam didn’t have WMDs. So my question is, would you support the Iraq War if Saddam did have WMDs? So the hypocrisy from liberals on this issue is overwhelming. The reason I’m picking on liberals is because we expect better. I don’t expect anything good from Trump. Trump is a neanderthal who’s taking back to the 1950s, like announcing today to bring back the cold war on Cuba.

Anyway back to North Korea. Dennis Rodman, sponsored by Hempcoin, has landed in Pyongyang. Now this makes good late show comedy, but in a time when all out nuclear war could start at any second, we should be praising Rodman for doing this. Regardless of what you even think of North Korea or Kim Jong Un, we shouldn’t be pushing for more belligerency with them. Imagine if China had it’s navy do military drills right off our coast, meanwhile have thousands of troops in Canada. The US would fucking freak the fuck up and nuke the planet if that happened.

Back to liberals for one second. So whenever North Korea is brought up people always say “well North Korea is insane and not a rational actor, so we have to take them out.” My response is North Korea is a rational actor. Having nukes to protect their country from regime change is a rational action for the leadership of North Korea. They saw what happened in Libya, Iraq, and Syria for regimes without nuclear weapons. Nor would North Korea ever use those nuclear weapons in an offense manner, it would lead to the death of pretty much every living person in North Korea as a whole. Where is the rationality in that?

Dennis Rodman is going to North Korea, not because he’s this secretly working for the US government to help release Otto Warmbier. I think Rodman generally has a friendship with Kim Jong Un, despite the national differences between the two. And I think Kim Jong Un feels the same. That and I think Rodman is going over there to smug back a shit ton of weed from North Korea back to the US.

Are we on the verge of World War III?

The tension in the Middle East is becoming unbearable. As the battle of Raqqa begins in Syria for the de facto capital of the so called Islamic State, US forces bomb pro-Assad forces in Syria. Qatar is being economically and diplomatically boycotted by the Saudis and other gulf nations, while Turkey approves sending troops to Qatar. Iran’s parliament and Khomeini mausoleum was blown up by Saudi Arabia posing as IS. Russia is being accused of hacking Qatar state media. Now the lieutenant general of the US is saying we don’t recognize any specific zone in Syria as being off limits to the United States.

At this point, the only news I watch anymore is RT America, the only legit news source left on TV. I got it blazing 24/7 in my room as I watch this in the background. I don’t even know what normies are watching on fake news MSNBC, CNN, or Fox, probably something about Russia or something, but anyway back to the topic at hand. The Trump administrations number one target is Iran. If you took a look at Trump’s cabinet, you will notice two things. One, they are anti-Islam, and two, they hate Iran.

And the two countries that hate Iran is Saudi Arabia and Israel. It comes to no surprise that these two countries have total control over the Trump administration. As Lawrence Wilkerson, retired United States Army Colonel and former chief of staff to United States Secretary of State Colin Powell, pointed out on the Real News, that the reason Trump has so much Goldman Sachs in his cabinet isn’t just a business reasons, but it’s because of Israel. Another great source on neocons and foreign policy in general is Abby and Robbie Martin. Robbie has create a film series on the necons called A Very Heavy Agenda that you can buy online.

Now to move on to Syria, what most Americans don’t know is the Syrian Civil War didn’t start in 2011, it started in 2005, when Syria stop cooperating with US forces and the CIA began funding terrorists to disrupt the region. So just so you know, this war started under Bush, continued under Obama and Trump. Now we began having US ground forces in Syria since 2015, however we’ve had CIA in the ground there since who knows what. Since 2017, just prior to April bombing of Assad, Trump doubled the US troops in Syria to 2,000 and US troop deployments have ceased for Iraq and Syria.

What I believe is happening is a ramping up of US forces in Syria. The neocons for a while have always had conflicting views within the neocons. Some extreme neocons like Frank Gaffeny think we should just ignore Syria because it distracts from invading Iran. Others want to see the Syria conflict go on forever to bob them down in fighting, a favorable view that Israeli government has. I do not know what the deep state is planning, but I do know that once ISIS falls it will make America’s troop presence in Syria null and void. So regime change in Syria would be the next goal.

The Qatar situation could blow out into full scale war in Turkish troops do arrive in Qatar, it will be interesting to see how America will respond, with the largest military base in the middle east being in Qatar. Trump at first cheered on Saudi Arabia and after his staff informed him the facts he said he wanted to negotiate with all sides. With the recent Iran bombings by the Saudis I don’t see any negotiations.

How about instead of having marches for Trump’s taxes we have marches for peace? But that’s not what the neocons want, they want use talking about Russia or taxes or whatever because it distracts us from the real issues. Trump is the ultimate distraction. All he does is tweet something and his tweets become headline news for the day. I say it’s time to start a campaign to boycott all Saudi goods by getting this country off fossil fuels.

The Myth of “Good War”

http://media.philly.com/images/Trump-globe.jpg

By Joseph Ballin 5/23/2017 5:14 AM EST

I don’t think it’s wrong to say America is the most evil nation in world history. When Donald Trump described himself as a “nationalist and a globalist” I didn’t think it was a contradiction in terms. America has also been on a nationalist bent for global domination of the planet. Since President McKinley, America has seen a revision of our grand global imperialist ambitions. Prior to McKinley, dating back to First Anglo-Powhatan War, the Anglo settlers of what would be the USA embarked on a genocidal campaign of extermination of the natives of this land. In early 17th century, Captain John Smith, leader of Jamestown, envisioned that the Native Americans of Virginia would one day be doing the work for English colonialists. Nothing about democracy or freedom were invoked in this American Holocaust.

McKinley began the great American revisionism. Instead of conquering brown people for land, we would now conquer brown people to “civilize” them. The great myth of spreading American “exceptionalism” began with the Spanish American War. If we look at every war ever fought by the United States, the only wars that the United States fought in a defense manner from an attack on the United States was World War II and the initial conflict with al-Qaeda, which was never a declared war. However, to say that Japan, Italy, Germany, al-Qaeda didn’t have legitimate reasons for coming into conflict with the United States is absurd. In response of Japanese invasion of Vichy French Indochina, FDR enacted an oil embargo on the Japanese Empire, which lead directly to the attack on Pearl Harbor.

On September 11, 1941, FDR ordered the United States Navy to shoot on sight if any ship or convoy is threatened in the Atlantic Ocean. This was response to the “Greer incident” on September 4, 1941, off the coast of Iceland, when German submarine U-652 fired, but did not make contact, with USS Greer after USS Greer received a signal from a British bomber that a German submarine was in the vicinity. Greer made sonar contact, and pursued the U-652 at close range. The aircraft dropped four depth charges, and soon after the U-boat fired a torpedo at the US warship, perhaps believing USS Greer had launched the attack.

As for Italy, on June 15, 1941, FDR freezed all US assets towards Italy and other Axis nations. So Germany, Italy, and Japan all had legitimate reasons for declaring war on the United States. What about al-Qaeda you would ask? Well let’s take a look shall we. The December 6, 1993 newspaper of The Independent described Osama Bin Laden as an “anti-Soviet warrior” who’s “recruited mujahedin now uses them for large-scale building projects in Sudan.” Osama was once America’s ally against the “evil” Soviets in Afghanistan, one that the CIA funded greatly as shown in “Charlie Wilson’s War”.

Later, after the Soviet withdraw from Afghanistan, in 1990 Saddam invaded Kuwait, after getting signals from Washington that he had the green light to do so. The Saudis began pushing for an intervention against Saddam’s annexation of Kuwait. Osama stated that his mujaheddin fighters could expel the Iraqis from Kuwait. Saudis rejected his offer for American soldiers to come into Saudi Arabia, set up military bases, and expel Iraqi forces from Kuwait. Osama began strongly criticizing the US occupation of the holy lands of Islam by foreign crusader troops. Another thing Osama would cite in his reasons for the September 11 attacks was America’s support for Israel over the Palestinians. Osama was not stupid, he would read people like Noam Chomsky and had a masterful plan to bring down the superpowers of the Soviet Union and USA by bogging them down in endless occupations overseas. His plan is still being carried out to this day.

This is not to justify the actions of the Axis powers or al-Qaeda. I am simply stating that the myth that America is this innocent actor in world events and the only reason they hate us is because of our “freedom” is total bullshit. Every action has an equal reaction. The golden rule, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”, is something we should abide by when it comes to foreign policy. Imagine if a terrorist Quebec liberation group feed Canada to the USA, began performing terrorist attacks against Canada, and Canada responded by drone bombing American cities, killing thousands of civilians in the process. How would Americans respond when the chickens come home to roost? Because that horror we all experienced on 9/11, the middle east has known almost every day ever since.

Bring Back Isolationism

https://www.globalvillagespace.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Isolationist-min.png

The Rape of Belgium was the first modern propaganda campaign by the British in order to change the opinion of Americans to join the side of the allies during World War I. Films of the dreaded Hun raping Belgium women and bayoneting babies appeared on Americans films. That is not to say there wasn’t atrocities committed by both sides during World War I, but that was not the reason we got into World War I. The real reason was because wallstreet had funded France and United Kingdom during the war and wallstreet wanted those debts paid back.

Germany and Austro-Hungary posed no threat to the United States. What should have happened was both sides should have ceased hostilities with each other and marched back to their nation’s borders, in a similar manner that brought an end to the bloody massacre that was the Korean War. Now, 100 years later, the U.S. State Department, one of the most evil organizations in human history, is “claiming” that the Assad government has killed and burned thousands of bodies in prisons. When I heard this, flashes of the rape of Belgium and Nayirah al-?aba? testifying before Congress that in Kuwait, Iraqi soldiers were “throwing babies out of incubators”.

The similarities between the Syrian Civil War and World War I are so numerous and obvious they could be put into a giant list. Let’s do that:

*Wilson runs for president under the campaign slogan “He kept us out of war”, winning in November 1916, only to betray his voters by declaring war on Germany in April 1917. A 100 years later, Trump runs for president under the campaign slogan of keeping us out of Syria, winning in November 2016, only to betray his voters by declaring war on Syria in April 2017.
*Both Trump and Wilson are authoritarian racists who advocated arresting journalists and establishing surveillance states.
*Instead of the the evil Kaiser, we now have Assad, the so called “butcher” of Damascus.
*There are various interconnecting alliances with contradictory goals among so called “allies”.
*Anti-war movements are marginalized and crushed by the state.

The more things change, the more things stay the same. Since Congress and US presidency no longer abide by US Constitution when it comes to declaration of war, Trump could at any time, use the thousands of US troops currently in Syria since March 2017 to overthrow Assad. We don’t have to be Nostradamus to see what happens next. We already have Iraq and Libya as models of American “liberation” looks like.

Until I see a shed of proof of Assad’s forces burning bodies or using sarin chemicals I do not believe either of them. Even if they were true, I would not advocate intervening in Syria. The only thing we can do to help is take in ALL Syrian refugees since we helped cause this, provide non-lethal aid to Syria, stop funding the so called “rebels”, and advocate some kind of cease fire.

Any new war will lead to decades long occupation by US military forces. We still have troops in Germany, Italy, Japan, and South Korea. Iraq and Afghanistan are almost 20 year old occupations. Imagine if we took all those US troops back home and instead of nation building over there, we start nation building here.

Put Your Faith in a Plant

They told you Hillary Clinton would defeat any old republican, and I told you she can’t, I put my faith in a plant. cus everyone knows she’s a liar, and she’ll set the whole democratic party on fire,

Now they put their faith in potiticians again, I don’t understand, I put my faith in a plant. legalize weed and do it today, grow some weed like friggin hay. And yet you put your faith in poltiticians, and you want to do it again…I say , put your faith in a plant.

The Greens and The Libertarians Cucked the Democrats

It’s just like before the election of the Orange MONSTAH! Democratic party cheerleaders are so focused on their party strategy as being the only strategy. Sam Seder, likes to be able to put down a lot of people from a lot of different angles, and point out that the democrats are our only hope. My alternate and BETTAH theory is to build a larger umbrella of understanding and win hearts and minds. So instead of putting people down, I try to understand them. Pretty simple. Be nice.

Sammy said that the Greens and Libertarians hurt the Democrats, but that they would not acknowledge it. This was another angle for him to put them down and call them stupid hypocrites…They should have voted for Hillary to avoid the ORANGE MONSTAH Trump!! How dare they not hold their heads in shame, and come back to worship at the altar of the Democratic party. Unfortunately this theory continues to fail. We see millions of people leaving the democratic party since the election. I jump in on Sammy’s point, but then I use his own logic drive the DAGGAH further into the heart of the corrupt democrats, by mentioning that I feel many Greens and Libertarians are glad that they sent a message to the Democratic party that a candidate like Hillary Clinton, a liar, a hypocrite, an obvious corporate plant…..not the good kind of plant….thats why I say corporate whore….cuz I am a sexist Bernie Bro!!!

There is only one conclusion. The Greens and The Libertarians Cucked the Democrats. The Democrats must listen to the message and change to become more like Bernie. They will learn to appeal to greens, independents, and libertarians. One more candidate like HIllary Clinton will be the death blow to whatever is left of the broken democratic party.

My Twitter Rage

I love Jimmy Dore, yet listening, makes me even more, ANGRY, at the corporate establishment democrats who refuse to change
Sam Seder, you are the man, but I don’t understand, why you disparage Jimmy, when you should be joining him in the call for change
To anger, I say enough of it, but I’m proven to be a hypocrite, as I unleash my twitter rage at those who have taken to disparaging Bernie
Cynthia Dill!! You make me ILL, your Headline reads “Democrats need to cull the fringe starting with the Bernie Bros”
Let my twitter rage burn!! These Clinton people still haven’t learned, and my twiitter rage burns, on and on and on and on!
Wanting, needing, reading, tweeting, drinking, now I’ve lost control of my twitter rage
I’ve lost control.

ATH 2-13-17 Esha from Twitter

ATH 2-13-17 Esha from Twitter

J30 and I were delighted to have Esha on the show!! Her wit and knowledge about politics and hypocrisy are always welcome, we talk Cory Booker, Majority Report, Jimmy Dore and more!!

Imaginary Children Express Outrage Over Warcrimes in Yemen

The 4-year-old girl turned to her mother and asked, “What does it mean to bomb a funeral in Yemen? Why are the kids called collateral damage?”

Hillary Schiller,an opinion pundit, who works for one of the many news organizations in bed with the Clinton, thought she misheard her daughter. “What?” Schiller recalled responding, “What do you mean?”

Then, Schiller saw the television screen:
