    I wish you had a message besides Trump sucks but as usual, you don't. You should have a long, hot summer of "resistance" to put the last nail in. I'm an Independent, change my mind, because you've got no one and nothing, and I'm listening but all I hear is "helplessly screaming at the sky". If you get 2.0'd in November then stick a fork in the "Progressive" Left.

    Holy Smokes. You mean the Democrats had an actual bias for a declared Democrat who has been a loyal member of the party for YEARS. You mean I should be offended that the DNC chose her over an Independant Democratic Socialist who most, but not all of the time, caucases with Democrats? I should be offended when he loses the primary of a party he's not an actual member of?

    Its not that Trump sucks, its that every day he makes blatant lying and corruption the norm, more so than any other politician in my or your lifetime. Furthermore, the body that is supposed to act as a check on him is complicit in the corruption.

    If you think I'm exaggerating, look into the timing Ukrainian actions in relations to various meetings with Trump that was recently reported. How about the loans the Kushner company got from Quatar? How about the recent changes in trade talks with China after Trump Co. Got a $500 million loan approved by the chinese govt.

    That doesn't even touch on the Russia investigations.

    Your defense of the whole insidious and corrupt process that was the DNC hijacking of a candidate favored by many tens of thousands of that partys' voters is revealing. The end justifies the means in the short term but I have a feeling it's not going to be forgotten.

    There will be ads for the GOP this year that will place that morally reprehensible act in the stark light of day. I don't see it having a national implication until 2020 but it's not dead and buried like they hope it is. I had two Bernie's Bros working an internship with us last summer, I stay in touch with them, and they're still pissed.

    Trump was hardly a party darling, the GOP played it fairly despite the pressure to put another Bush in the WH and all the Cruz momentum, and it demonstrates why Democrats have alienated Independents in recent elections. They've done little to change public perception and TDS will be their undoing unless they get serious about telling voters why they've changed.

  4. By Chuck Baldwin


    After the U.S. invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan in 2003, I said, “Put up the yellow ribbons, folks, because Johnny ain’t ever marchin’ home again.” And that was before I knew about the Pentagon’s plan to launch seven wars against seven Middle Eastern nations.

    In 2007, General Wesley Clark said that after the attacks on 9/11, the U.S. planned to launch seven wars against seven Middle Eastern countries: Iraq, Syria, Libya, Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan and Iran. I suppose Afghanistan was already assumed to be the eternal home of the U.S. military, and I guess the country of Niger in Northern Africa was thrown in for good measure. And I suppose, too, that the Pentagon doesn’t count U.S. military assistance of the Saudi Arabian war against Yemen.
    .
    .

    But, ladies and gentlemen, America is not engaged in a long war; it is engaged in a perpetual (never-ending, everlasting) war.

    As Durden notes in his report, “War is Business.”

    On April 16, 2018 the news broke that some US senators were drafting a new war authorization bill. Its authors are Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn. and Tim Kaine, D-Va. and its co-sponsors include Sens. Chris Coons, D-Del.; Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.; Bill Nelson, D-Fla., and Todd Young, R-Ind. The bill would regulate the president’s power to press the US armed forces into service. But if one bothers to scrutinize even a bit all the work done by defense contractors and the political decisions related to combat operations, one can quickly see that there is a definite connection between the two. Therefore, any such restrictions can be not only political in nature, but also aimed at business interests.

    Both of the US missile strikes in Syria (April 2017 and April 2018) used Tomahawk missiles, which are manufactured by the American company Raytheon. In April 2017, when the US attacked a Syrian airbase (firing 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles), Raytheon surged 3% before paring its gain by half, but closed above its 50-day moving average and a 152.68 flat-base buy point. That put the stock back in buy range.

    Other Pentagon contractors, such as Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and Boeing, also edged higher. Interestingly, after April 11, 2018, Raytheon shares began to creep upward, rising from $219 per share to a ceiling of $228 by April 17. And this was despite the fact that most of the Tomahawks landed wide of their target.
    .
    .

    But not only are there monetary motivations for war, there are political motivations also. Bankers and war merchants are not the only ones who greatly profit during war, so do heads of state. In fact, nothing tends to make a president or prime minister more popular than war. The world’s two biggest warmongering countries, the United States and Israel, are prime examples.

    Benjamin Netanyahu is one of the most unpopular leaders at home of any national leader on the planet. If it were not for the numerous Zionist billionaires around the world—and the backing of the U.S. government—who continue to prop up this criminal, Bibi would have been removed from office years ago. And, in spite of this massive international support, he’s still the subject of intense criminal investigation that could yet lead to his political demise.

    But no sooner had Bibi started bombing Syria and killing Palestinians in large numbers than his domestic approval ratings began to go up. Ditto for Donald Trump. Trump’s approval ratings at home mirrored those of Netanyahu’s. But as soon as Trump bombed Syria and threatened to go to war with North Korea and Iran, his approval numbers began to rise.

    Much like Woodrow Wilson, who won re-election on the promise to keep America out of war, so, too, did Donald Trump. And just like Wilson, no sooner had Trump won the election than he began beating the drums of war. Wilson took the U.S. into the First World War. Trump is making all of the overtures of taking us into the Third World War.

    Well said.

    Also, I agree with Ringo:

    It is to one's honor to avoid strife, but every fool is quick to quarrel (Pro 20:3) // I came here to build Pro-2A consensus to help our country, not trade insults like a fifth-grader. If you're on ignore, well, now you know why.
