Trump Repeats WMD lies ....after Running Election Campaign denouncing Iraq War based on WMD lies

Trump Starts Repeating Age-Old Lie-Based
Threats as Pre-text to yet Another War for Israel

It really makes you start to wonder...what must the blackmail be that Israel has against the US?  Some secret that is so terrible and powerful that it can make a man whipsaw his principles and his stated electoral platform 180 degrees around.  To make him lie in a way [see Trump in the above video] that makes you question his sanity.  That he can make allegations that have been proven wrong over and over in the past...that he himself said was the cause of the Iraq war..."Weapons of Mass Destruction" used by a chosen enemy.  An allegation made without sufficient evidence, without even an investigation.

Yet Trump has done it.  He has shown once again that Israel has the United States by the short and curlies...and that they are determined to destroy the planet, setting up the US and Russia in a nuclear Armageddon face-off.

Inevitable Result of US Foreign Policy

Robert Parry has written an excellent analysis of how the "liberal interventionists" who are nothing more or less than foreign moles in the US government have had the US foreign policy in a strangle-hold for decades and WILL NOT GIVE IT UP.

Robert Parry:
....Team Trump also is hobbled by its inability to break free from many of the groupthinks that have dominated Official Washington for the past quarter century or so as the foreign policy establishment fell under the domination of the neoconservatives and their junior partners, the liberal interventionists, virtually banishing the formerly influential “realists” as well as the few peace advocates.

This enduring neocon/liberal-hawk strength – reflected in what all the “important people” know to be true – has left senior Trump officials still pandering to the Saudis and the Israelis; repeating the neocon mantra that “Iran is the principal source of terrorism” (though that is clearly not true given the support for Al Qaeda and other Sunni terror groups coming from U.S. “allies” such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar); and falling into line with NATO’s hype of Russia as the new global villain.
The Saker has also written a seminal analysis of this latest development:

The Trump administration goes Neocon-crazy        

Oh boy, that did not take long. As I wrote in February, the Neocons and the US deep state have completely neutered Trump. Just look at these two headlines from RT (and read the articles):

‘It crossed a lot of lines’: Trump on alleged chemical gas attack in Syria

‘We are compelled to take own action’ if UN fails in Syria – US envoy

Frankly, I feel like saying “QED – I rest my case” and stop writing here. But I won’t – this is too serious.

First, let’s set the context. The Syrians gave up their chemical weapons three years ago (courtesy of Russia). The Syrians have also pretty much defeated the Anglo-Zionist-Wahabi aggression against their country (courtesy of Russia, again). There is a new (kind of) US Administration in power (some say that this was also courtesy of Russia) which appeared to have given up on overthrowing Assad. And right at this moment in time, in what is supposed to be a *pure coincidence*.
The Syrian forces used chemical weapons
In a location filled with children
and a lot of folks with cameras

How stupid do they think we are?

But, of course, it’s not about us. It’s about Trump. And he, alas, is proving to be the overcooked noodle he has been since, well, pretty much day 1 and ever since: flaccid, confused and spineless. And yeah, he appears be stupid alright, especially so-called “plan” to defeat Daesh (more about that below).

So the US presidency seems to be an inverted pyramid....intelligence declining with each successive president.  Trump...wait for it....will be EVEN WORSE THAN OBAMA!

After watching Trump talking in the first video above, I suspect that, like Obama before him, people will simply turn him off.  People don't like being lied to their faces...and that is what the President of the United States is being blackmailed into doing.  I will no longer listen to him...I will simply read reports of what he's up to from others.  Talk about "crossing red lines".  The biggest red line out there is the United States' lack of credibility...and Trump has clearly crossed over it into the "land of lies".

Really? This surprises you?

GC (an everyone else) should have listened to me.

This was obvious from day one.

Perhaps it was obvious, BuelahMan...but Hillary was still, IMO, the worst of the two very bad choices.

Thoreau said "I have traveled much in Concord." Spring is arriving and I will be able to mount photo-expeditionary events in my backyard and beyond just as soon as the monsoons have passed. I still have not written the book that chronicles the last great foray into the open spaces of our police state but I can observe what's going down each week and what people are saying about it (or, in most cases, what they refuse to acknowledge about it) through the multiple windows of my 27-inch (2560 x 1440) monitor. The informational horizons are shortening, though; I hear the tramping of the thought police in between the thrumming of the rain.

Hi Ed(itor)

Well, March, 2017 was officially the "gloomiest" March on record in the Pacific Northwest. It has been raining here all week. "Good blogging weather" OTOH. My impression after having visited South East that the alternative media is losing the information war. Countries like Vietnam (especially) are soaking up Western investment/debt...."Welcome to my parlour...said the spider to the fly."

Impressions from other places and other people are always welcome, even if -- or especially when -- they contribute to the galloping narrative of psychopathic wealth. The more people we can add to the chorus, the louder we will be. We must wrest back control of the media and the educational approaches we create for our descendants.

By design, GC.

Drumpf was always the intended POTUS. Don't you yet get it?

It is ALL Kabuki. The sooner you understand, the better.
