It’s no big secret that I am not a fan of Donald Trump. I will say that the behavior of those who HATE him has done more to enamor him to me than to make me less of a fan. Be that as it may, there is something of which I am even less a fan, and that is one man – be he Donald Trump or Barak Obama – could take this county to a war. A nuclear war. Nuclear weapons aren’t toys. They are serious instruments of deterrence and if need be, destruction. we’ve spent the better part of a Century perfecting them and getting them dialed in, a process that once upon a time, was more “by-the-seat-of-the-pants” than you might think.
Which reinforces the idea that one man having control of them is a really bad idea.
It’s National Cheeseburger Day. Which is convenient since we have to confess our sins at sundown…
The War in Syria is lost. There is nothing short of sending the 1 Marine Division backed up by the 6th Fleet and USAF that would even start to “help” our “Allies” win. So what happens when a Russian IL-20 gets accidentally shot down by Syrian anti-aircraft missiles built and supplied by Russia? Blame Israel!
Governor Jerry Brown has repeated his promise for the PDRK to “launch its own satellite.” Of more interest is that nobody seems to have realized that what he intends to launch is a “spy satellite” capable of “pinpointing” those who are putting out CO2.

The US Coast Guard is – I think rightfully – upset over the theft of $700 Million from its acquisition budget which DHS reallocated to the “Border Wall.” we could spend an hour on why the wall is stupid, but today we are looking at what the USCG is losing in the deal – at least four modern Icebreaking Ships that it desperately needs. Or… does it?
“The FBI was founded out of a government desire for more power. Its purpose is to give the Federal Government a police force. So why would the government, which spies on us, lies to us, steals from us and ignores us, have a police force that serves us?”
The DOJ has indicted another 12 Russian GRU agents for hacking the DNC. It is still a fact that not a single American voter was ‘tricked” into voting against Hillary Clinton. Not one.
It is also still a fact that Russia has tried to interfere in American elections for more than seven decades. It is also a fact that we have interfered in other countries elections.
The whole idea that the FBI is “apolitical” is laughable. Of course, it’s political. It always has been and it always will be. Tom Clancy’s “White Knight” portrayals notwithstanding, the FBI was founded out of a government desire for more power. Its purpose is to give the Federal Government a police force. So why would the government, which spies on us, lies to us, steals from us and ignores us, have a police force that serves us? Read the rest of this entry
