We all know how it is…a friend of yours tells you that it would be really cool if you both jumped off a cliff, and so, on a crazy whim, you both decide to do it…just to prove your parents were basically “full of it” when they asked you as a kid, if “Johnny jumped off a cliff, bridge, mountain top, towering inferno, or the amount of unread emails in one’s deleted file, would you go along with him”?
So, with the modern day thinking of going along with whatever lunatic idea that pops up and to prove one is “with it” and down with whatever hashtag that comes out each day – you jump.
It’s the same deliciously vapid train of thought that Americans, in their permanent state of apathy and delirious stupidity, find no insanity with…participating in their own destruction.
Warning! Choice guano follows:
Trump Hopes a Traumatic “Major Event” Isn’t Needed to Unite America –
“I want to see our country united. I want to bring our country back from a tremendous divisiveness,” Trump reportedly said, discussing longstanding rifts and citing historical examples like the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.
“I would love to be able to bring back our country into a great form of unity,” he also said. “Without a major event where people pull together, that’s hard to do. But I would like to do it without that major event because usually that major event is not a good thing.”
The president was presumably referencing historical “major events” like 9/11 and Pearl Harbor, both of which resulted in the United States waging war. However, based on Alcindor’s report, it is unclear whether he specified what other events he was alluding to. – via anitmedia.org
Where have we heard this kind of premium guano before?
From 2002: John Pilger reveals the American plan: a new Pearl Harbour – via newstatesman.com
The threat posed by US terrorism to the security of nations and individuals was outlined in prophetic detail in a document written more than two years ago (the year – 2000) and disclosed only recently. What was needed for America to dominate much of humanity and the world’s resources, it said, was “some catastrophic and catalysing event – like a new Pearl Harbor”.
And glory be…9/11 happened! Wow! What are the chances of that?
It never ends with these demons. Always some devilishly splendid event they’ve orchestrated in order to advance the military industrial complex and bomb the hell out of other countries and end a few hundred thousands of lives for advancement of Washington’s hegemony. Always some “catalysing” catastrophe needed to unite Americans to continue to buy into the BS that we need to dominate humanity and the world’s resources. It is no wonder that God, the gods, or a panel of dolphins overseeing everything at this circus lost interest long ago and said…to hell with it all.
How about jobs, caring for the sick, homeless, providing healthcare for your citizens – as most countries already do – instead of using bogus BS of yet-to-be cataclysmic events to unite the country?
$700 Billion + for 2018 alone allocated to Washington’s buddies in the war business for more death, destruction and annihilation of other countries who haven’t done a damn thing to us. Sure, why not…it’s worked so far for these shysters, why not continue it? When you’re a demon – such thoughts as improving the lives of your fellow citizen never enter into your depraved mind. They only dream of new ways to end others lives and advance sick dreams of imperialist rule.
And this latest horseshit was reinforced with more horseshit from government “officials”, like this:
“US National Security Focus No Longer Terrorism” – via businessstandard.com
In an apparent reference to Russia, he warned against “threaten(ing) America’s experiment in democracy”.
“If you challenge us, it will be your longest and worst day,” he warned.
And what did we and world gain from the war on terror… it’s all nicely laid out in the following clip: “the war on terror is over”
What the f*** has China or Russia done to challenge us? Not a damn thing, unless one believes the BS Russiagate nonsense that the idiots in the mainstream media here in the States continue to pound away on, in hopes of what, we’re not sure of, except the chance to make a few billion off the deaths of millions.
The worst government is often the most moral. One composed of cynics is often very tolerant and humane. But when fanatics are on top there is no limit to oppression. ~
