The broad coalition of countries fighting ISIS with US sure aren’t shouldering much of the load. A few planes here and there and that is about it. Mostly the help amounts to cheer leading. But considering the integrity of our “friends” this comes as no surprise.
Take Turkey, please. Our NATO “partner” funds “moderate” rebels in Syria. They supply gas to the rebels and blame it on Syria hoping to suck the US in deeper. Thanks to Putin and some rare push back from the US citizenry we aren’t as deep as we could be.
Saudi Arabia funded the 9/11 attackers, most of them home-grown. SA does not want to become overtly seen as fighting fellow muslims and has only lately become a cheerleader. SA takes our money and what weapons they don’t get for free they get at bargain rates. Thank you Import-Export bank. SA knows it is next on ISIS list. But why put your own people at risk when you can throw your weight (spelled “oil”) around and intimidate Washington into sacrificing US bodies. Read the rest of this entry »

We visited Tasmania a few years ago and I like to listen to the local station on line. 936 Hobart.
The item today was the police shooting of an ISIS flag waving youth that stabbed two officers.
Here is my comment to the station.
I was listening to your Wednesday morning show. The big news was the ISIS flag waving youth shot by police. It was really sad to hear some of the interviewees saying loss of rights was OK with them if the government made them safe. They will soon learn there is no correlation between government and safe.

We will send as many 100 “advisers”, no make that 300, no 1000+ to fight the enemy.
The “advisors” are fully armed and accompany the locals to fight the enemy. But they will magically steer clear of the fighting. We will not mention the “specialists” nor the inevitable CIA presence.
The enemy can mutate into an unrecognizable form in an instant leaving us at a complete loss as how to fight it. Not that we knew how to fight it to begin with.
What DOES the enemy look like today?
We will no doubt end up helping to feed and spread the enemy even as we are battling it. Our lack of knowledge of even the most elementary aspects of the enemy will result in an epidemic of collateral damage and innocent lives lost. Read the rest of this entry »

I must return to the original purpose of this blog, to circumvent the limitations imposed by my beloved local rag. The lamestream media has been really getting to me and I had to vent via a letter to the editor. Apparently it hit too close to home. Here goes.
We read about supposed Russian aggression next door to them in Ukraine. Yet we never hear how the State Department (search for assistant secretary Victoria Nuland’s “$%@& the EU” cell phone conversation), National Endowment for Democracy and CIA aided and abetted the overthrow of the previous government. All because Victor Yuschenko decided Billions in Russian bailout money trumped Millions from the EU. Food is big business in Ukraine. US agribusinesses that advertise on Sunday morning news shows have much to gain with a US sock puppet in charge. Read the rest of this entry »

One could say the latest round of Middle East discontent began with Bush I giving a green light to Hussein invading Kuwait, then pulling the rug out as it were. Clinton, Bush II and Obama have each made the situation exponentially worse.
Pat Buchanan has recently expanded on Ran Paul’s question: What did Hillary accomplish as secretary of state? Wrecking havoc is about all.
The CIA, National Endowment for Democracy and Hillary’s coercion in the overthrow of Libya, Eqypt and Ukraine have unleashed tribal and ethnic chaos. ISIS and Boko Haram being a direct result. Read the rest of this entry »

Remember the anthrax mailings to some Senators in 2001? After much prodding the government finally admitted the bugs came from the Army’s Ames Research Center.
Researcher Bruce Ivins was accused but no one really believes it was him. Ivins couldn’t take the pressure and pulled his own plug. The FBI pulled out and declared victory.
Then there is Plum Island. This facility near Lyme CT was started to help combat contagious animal disease such as hoof and mouth. It is now a restricted access biological disaster area. There have been past reports of disfigured animals washing up on nearby shores. Read the rest of this entry »

I have trouble making it passed number 2.
Somewhat out of the ordinary!
And then there is Felix Baumgartner

It would in the pharmacists’ best interest to start tending their own store before the government screws them up more than they already have.
Deb Beck, president of the Drug and Alcohol Service Providers Organization of Pennsylvania and State Rep Joe Hackett plead the case for a prescription drug monitoring in PA in an Erie Times-News editorial.
They make the point that overdose deaths by controlled substances such as OxyContin, Vicodin and Benzodiazepines are a leading cause of death. We need to monitor drug dispensation more closely to watch who gets what and to prevent doctor shopping.
They may be onto something but wait! Is not the drug industry one of the most government regulated, dare I say strangled, industries in the world?
Could there be a connection between government drug control and the rampant misuse thereof? Read the rest of this entry »

The only thing surprising about this story was that it was on lamestream media. Police vulgarities are an old story. To serve and protect is ancient history. Now it is Enforce and Arrest.
Internet sites such as:
Police State USA
are loaded with police brutality horror stories. Read the rest of this entry »
