All the Kink's Men & the Lyin' Liars Who Lie

                                    Jeremy Scahill on the underlying wrongs

                              The one war Trump doesn't want to lose: the first one

                             Another war Trump won't want to lose: the latest one

Trump is the third 'War President' elected, in a row. He won't want to be the first President to 'lose' one. That's his first consideration. What he has done,  so far,  reflects 'not losing' being his job #one.

The news this week has, either, Trumpco rising to new heights of 'greatifying' America, or imploding as it and he, personally, goes into a 'deth spiral'. As last week and the last 38 before,   it is all about 'false news' and the variety you prefer best.  America and the Brits are shocked, they tell us, shocked, that fake news is now the only variety they get. As if, by some miracle, the 'hoo hah' we've all been ingesting for at least 18 years has been much different.  What's different is that more people are starting to call it crap. Even the mall-trotters are starting to wake up to the fact that the brown 'goo' on their mouths isn't the latest 'in' shade of lipliner. The sub-adult population - at least - have been wearing it   since they were born.

What is telling is that 'the poop' could, for the first time,  take down an American government.

The other day, after the resignation of Trump's National Security Advisor, and more particularly Trump's "continued defiance", the media -  especially 'the voices' providing the sound track to the leaked calls - were crying that the "problem" still remained - foul treason was still afoot - and they wanted to know what Trump knew about it.

Today, after his appontment of  'Deth Lord Vader' to head-up the NSC (I thought he gave that job to Kellogg at the same time as the newbie came aboard - but I'm probably in error) the news is full of squawks about how the 'new guy' is demanding to retrofit the NSC 'so it works for him' and how that means Trump's favorite civilian warfighter - and loose cannon -  Bannon of Breitbart - will 'have to go'. Another Pro-Trump part of the media is making noises about how the 'power' in America, the 'deep state', is 'encircling Trump with its minions'.  Either to make sure he upsets no applecarts, or help remove him when he does. Some bookies are giving odds on the impeachment date, others on when Trump's war kicks-off. Both events sooner rather than later.

Trump to-day reformatted his immigration policy, or rather this emigration policy,  for it sees a lot more people leaving America than coming in.  We'll have to see if is a) appealed or b) stands another judicial ruling - the White House claims he has every right, if not a duty, to keep certain people out of America. Up until now that referred to invading armies. His 'duty' is, of course, transferrable to the Dirlewanger battalion of the Grenzwache. Eggs will get broken to make the American omelet greater.

In the meantime watch out for WW3!

Updates: the new immigration policy got the same judicual treatment as the first one.

Forward Two Weeks

The Blogroll, a satirical US website that pokes fun at their military mind, came to life last week in a unique story of how some bozos in uniform  tasked to find potential adherents to ISIS or jihadi entities and wean them away from evil-doing by being better, or smarter, or perhaps nore fun than the promise of a glorious death in battle and 72 heavenly houris -  (with a couple of willing hand maidens)  to make the 'meanwhile' more fun than merely hacking at infidels - screwed that up. Somehow the 'guys' - probably as a result of overexposure to a beer tent somewhere - not only 'effed up' their mission, they got caught and outed doing it.  Now they're 'targets' for any domestic terrorists they missed and might meet in Piggly Wiggly or the Likker Barn.  Fun.

Fightin' sojers, from the net. They the best, the best you bet.

Donald Trump has veen visibly active since taking office, calling in the photographers for the daily PR stunts - like Mexican fences and Muslim terrorist bans. And not calling in the photographers while he continues with the all-important task of 'defending' America by killing Yemenis and droning the  Muslim world.

Seal raid "Botched"?

He spent last Saturday morning 'taking' calls from five or six world leaders.   That must be part of 'the Boss thing' he has going - for he also 'cancelled' a meeting with the President of Mexico after the latter said 'he wouldn't be there as there was nothing worth meeting about'. I imagine he saw sitting through an hour of Donald's 'ideas' about how Mexico could pay to keep Mexicans out of the USA, as something he'd prefer to avoid.  That wasn't the end of it,  for Donald did call to tell him to 'look after the bad hombres', or America would do that for him.

He called Putin.  He didn't call Porko who, being the thorough-going asshole he is, decided that the iron was hot enough to try reestablishing the territiorial integrity of EUkraine by "slowly advancing" into the "Pig Farm" at a town called Avdiivka, just outside Donestk.  Naturally the DPR forces responded to all the tanks and artillery, with some of their own.  The battle (a Ukrainian 'offensive' by some descriptions) is currently still underway.  Since it mostly involves middle-of-the night artillery firing into DPR towns, the greatest number of the fallen have been the Maidan dopes Porko has living in pig sties on the 'eastern front".  Donald should call him and tell him to look after his 'погані люди' before Putin does.

In like fashion - to celebrate the accession of the Donald - Benny Netanyahu approved construction of 200 new homes in East Jerusalem and the recognition of  number of 'settlements' in the West Bank. Just to show he's a 'real mensch',  he also sent in the police to remove an illegal settlement - built within sight of what appear to be three or four 'Eretz Israel' realty developments. So that's probably more because it was an eyesore, or the 'settlers' were 'doing religious traditions' that disturbed the neighbors, than it was an effort to make America happy. The resulting news coverage was the standard pastiche of 'poor Jews' resisting the Allegemeine SS and the Totenkopf Verbande -  they way they wished their forefathers had. The police didn't need riot gear, dogs or live ammo as they would have, facing a crowd of 'jihadi women'.   The settlement wasn't bulldozed. 

Thank goodness all this positivity wasn't messed-up when 6 Muslims were shot to death in Quebec. That may not have been  as terrible as gays being offed in mid revel  but it was news - some 'crazy person' shot up their mosque.  Authorities are trying to figure out why.

Save Us President Trump!

 The civil war in Ukraine has become a hot one again.  The Kyiv governent is claiming to have been "attacked" after it 'slowly advanced' into rebel territory to 'restore its territorial integrity'.

 Last week the Kyiv cabal were announcing the liberation of the ''Pig Farm" at Ardiivka, one of the largest commercial hog-farming operations in EUkraine, and, lately, feeding the Donbass Republics.  Since then the fighting - most usually in the form of artillery fire - has spread along the front. Kyiv makes very much of separatist forces 'committing war crimes' by shelling civilian areas.

Here Graham Phillips posts about the on-site first-person  reports of  American Patrick Lancaster, from Donetsk,  Ardivka and other towns in the DPR.   You don't get reality like this coming from Kyiv.

Donbass January 30.  Ukraine is under attack!

January 31st Slava Eukrainia - stop those miners!

 You don't see this on our news.

 Feb 1st 'freedom' is still "under attack"

The 'Russian' attackers.

Both Phillips and Lancaster are independent journalists - depending on donations to fund their reporting.

Both also do a lot to bring relief to the civilians of the affected areas.  Last week the trains were stopped for the first time in 4 years. Water and electricity are disrupted daily and of course the Ukrainian government pays nothing to any Ukrainian citizens inside what they call 'temporarily occupied' areas.

Check them out and please consider helping.
