Philip Giraldi Columns – The Unz Review

The 2017 Trump version “The Assad Regime’s Use of Chemical Weapons on April 4, 2017,” is likewise under fire from numerous quarters. Generally reliable journalist Robert Parry is reporting that the intelligence behind the White House claims comes largely from satellite surveillance, though nothing has been released to back-up the conclusion that the Syrian government was behind the attack, an odd omission as everyone knows about satellite capabilities and they are not generally considered to be a classified source or method. Parry also cites the fact that there are alternative theories on what took place and why, some of which appear to originate with the intelligence and national security community, which was in part concerned over the rush to judgment by the White House. MIT Professor Theodore Postol, considered to be an expert on munitions, has also questioned the government’s account of what took place in Khan Sheikhoun through a detailed analysis of the available evidence. He believes that the chemical agent was fired from the ground, not from an airplane, suggesting that it was an attack initiated by the rebels made to appear as if it was caused by the Syrian bomb.

Rand Paul: McCain and Graham are blind to the risks in Syria (opinion) – CNN.com

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 20, 2017

Recently, I introduced legislation to ensure that no American weapons are given to terrorist groups, especially in Syria. You wouldn’t think we would have to have legislation to prevent our own government from sending arms to terrorists, but there it is. Read the rest of this entry »

President Trump: What Happened To Your Promise To Get Us Out These Messes, Close Bases And Bring Our Troops Home?

Congress Needs to Stop Trump’s Escalation of the War on Syria

 On March 9, The New York Times reported that the United States is sending 400 troops to Syria to bolster the small number of American troops that are already on the ground there. A week later, March 15, The Washington Post reported that the Pentagon has drawn up plans to send a 1,000 more troops within the coming weeks. Meanwhile, in anticipation of the coming (and perhaps final) stages of the operation against the Islamic State, the administration has decided to send “an additional 2,500 ground combat troops to a staging base in Kuwait from which they could be called upon to back up coalition forces battling the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.”

Candidate Trump, where did you go?

Hillary Is A Menace, Time Out For Rand Paul…Ralph Nader!

Posted by Martin C. Fox on October 29, 2014

Ralph Nader is not the wacko you may have thought he was.  Give him credit.  He went Green to separate himself from the Republicrats.

He is the only household name I know of that calls out Hillary for what she is.

‘Militarist’, ‘Corporatist’, ‘Menace’ and “She thinks Obama is too weak. He doesn’t kill enough people overseas. So she’s a menace to the United States of America.” – Washington Times

That he is speaking specifically about Hillary is refreshing.  Though this applies to most in Washington and their think tank handlers.

He also thinks Rand Paul needs to go to the time out chair.  Too much pandering to the lower life forms and Israel.

Lets hope the power of his name gets this some nightly news air time.

The Meaning of Term Limits… and Size Matters

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 10, 2013

There has been much discussion and even a petition drive in Erie County of late for term limits.

We of course already have a term limit mechanism-elections.  But this does not seem to work.

Why?  On a very local level an official may have done a good job of dealing with certain issues so you want to keep him/her around for a while.

The higher up the food chain the worse things get.  My Senator Casey for example says he is the gun-owners friend and often votes that way as PA, even though a democratic state, is a gun-owners state.  Casey wants re-elected and says what he must to accomplish that end.  But he is Obama’s man.  The mask came off and he voted for the UN small arms control treaty.

The upper levels of the food chain is where the real money is and money is the name of the game.  Politician X may be a lapdog for AIPAC but we don’t care because we don’t know what AIPAC is or care to know.  All we know is X gets us free stuff.  Roads, military contracts, bridges to nowhere.  Like many dictators we support, X may be an SOB but X is our SOB.  But we don’t think “SOB” because getting money stolen from someone else makes us happy and buys our vote.  Our SOB is oh such a good guy (Don’t get a complex.  If you are reading this and/or pissed about your government the “we” is hopefully not you).

Congress Gives Us Another Reason to Impeach

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 18, 2012

Judge Napolitano alerts us to another Congressional travesty here.

Another attack on our rapidly atrophying Constitution. Specifically the first amendment. The judge explains:

Last week, President Obama signed into law the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011. This law permits Secret Service agents to designate any place they wish as a place where free speech, association and petition of the government are prohibited. And it permits the Secret Service to make these determinations based on the content of speech. Read the rest of this entry »
