It’s the little things in life that can bring us the most pleasure.
Take for an example today. I was looking for pumpkin puree at the grocery store that can take your whole paycheck in one visit. I was needing it for Henry, the Asylum’s resident canine extraordinaire. It’s a good source of fiber for dogs. Naturally, I was in the proper aisle where pumpkin puree should be stocked. I looked and looked. Nothing was there and the grocery mensa’s couldn’t locate it either. I gave up.
Knowing that Henry was in need of treats to satisfy his demand for eating outside established meal times, I started toward the pet food aisle. I found the treats that Henry demands and was just about to leave when a can of pumpkin puree caught my eye. Yes, there in the pet food aisle. Those crafty stockers at the grocery store must also know that pumpkin is good for most dogs and had enough forethought to stock it there, just in case it couldn’t be found in the normal food aisle. Genius!
Now, take the POTUS. Evidently, he likes chocolate cake, along with tomahawk missiles too. It’s those little things. Let’s review the conversation between the POTUS and reporter, Maria Bartiromo:
“I was sitting at the table. We had finished dinner. We’re now having dessert. And we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you’ve ever seen, and President Xi was enjoying it. And I was given the message from the generals that the ships are locked and loaded, what do you do? And we made a determination to do it, so the missiles were on the way. And I said ‘Mr. President, let me explain something to you.’ This is during dessert. ‘We’ve just fired 59 missiles,’ all of which hit by the way, unbelievable, from you know, hundreds of miles away, all of which hit, amazing.”
“So incredible. It’s brilliant. It’s genius. Our technology, our equipment is better than anybody by a factor of five. What we have in terms of technology, nobody can even come close to competing…So what happened is I said, ‘We’ve just launched 59 missiles, heading to Iraq.”
Ah yes…those little things – a staff to prepare you the most beautiful of chocolate cakes, and having a few Tomahawk missiles at your disposal too! Imagine the planning by the staff. We’ll need a beautiful chocolate cake, along with, oh say…59 Tomahawk cruise missiles for the President to impress his guest.
Now let’s see. We assume the chocolate cake was delicious but all 59 missiles hitting their target? Doesn’t appear to be so, Mr. President. Try about 23. But of those 23, they did still end a few lives. The Chinese president must have been impressed.
“Yes. Heading toward Syria. And I want you to know that, because I didn’t want him to go home. We were almost finished. It was a full day in Palm Beach. We’re almost finished, and I — what does he do, finish his dessert and go home and then they say, ‘You know, the guy you just had dinner with just attacked a country?’”
“How did he react?”
“So he paused for 10 seconds and then he asked the interpreter to please say it again. I didn’t think that was a good sign. And he said to me, ‘Anybody that uses gases … but anybody that was so brutal and uses gases to do that young children and babies, it’s OK.’ He was OK with it. He was OK.”
Sure he was OK with it. What else is he suppose to say or do while swallowing a mouthful of chocolate cake, given the circumstances. Or maybe he was OK with it given the Chinese’ on-going treatment of its own citizens with their forced re-education camps.
And evidently, Ivanka hasn’t seen the carnage of what Yemen has endured at the hands of the Saudi’s, backed by US arms and support, and the thousands of men, women and children who have died. If so, perhaps she would have asked her father to convince whomever needs to be convinced to stop supporting the Saudi’s, just as she helped convince her father to send dessert cruise missiles to Syria in response to what a number of Trump supporters believe to be a false flag event, among others believing the same.
Meanwhile, the wannabe barbie-doll of nuttiness, lunacy and mental vapidness, Nikki Haley, American envoy to the UN, continued with her string of brainless meanderings by saying on Wednesday that the US is the “world’s conscience.” This prompted the pragmatic and deliciously smart Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, to quip:
If you’re the world’s conscience, why don’t you see what’s happening to the people of Yemen? Or is it some sort of new, hybrid conscience which doesn’t send signals to brain or to other global organs. It’s impossible to not see it,” Zakharova said.
She added that American media, however, focus on Russia instead of reporting on the humanitarian situation in Yemen, Syria, or the Iraqi city of Mosul.
“Conscience cannot be that blind. It cannot atrophy to that point, most likely there wasn’t any [conscience] at all,” the spokeswoman said.(RT.com)
And to conclude from the same article on RT.com
The Saudi-led coalition’s operation in Yemen has been ongoing for two years. The invasion, aimed at restoring ousted President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi to power, has claimed THE lives of at least 10,000 civilians, according to UN estimates , while millions of people are suffering from hunger, due to air and naval blockades. The majority of them perished in Saudi-led coalition airstrikes, which hit civilian sites such as hospitals, schools and markets.
The deadliest attacks came on a funeral ceremony in the capital Sanaa last October, in which over 140 people died and more than 500 were injured, and in March 2016 when a coalition raid on a market in northern Yemen claimed the lives of 97 people.
Despite numerous confirmed reports of civilian casualties, condemnation from multiple international organizations and the imprecise nature of Saudi airstrikes, the US – the main ally of the Gulf kingdom – continues to supply it with high-grade weapons and munitions, contributing greatly to the carnage.
Earlier in March, Amnesty International sent a letter to US President Donald Trump, urging him to stop arming “governments that violate international human rights and humanitarian law,” and warning that supplying Saudi Arabia and its allies might amount to “complicity with war crimes.”
We include the clip below, only as a vehicle to watch lunacy being practiced. But be careful when watching…you probably don’t want to be eating chocolate cake!
