Politicians Speak, Crickets Die

You know how it goes – you’re the king, top of the world, baby – you dictate who dies and where – your lies are offered up as golden rods of vomit, spun into threads of accepted thought of what is good and what is bad.  Every utterance, syllable – every action and non-action is seen as good, and those who point out the smudge mark on your window are cast out as the unclean, questioning the righteous.

But the reality is…when you’re the twit of an ambassador, US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley – when you speak, crickets (and even humans) die:

“For too long, the Human Rights Council has been a protector of human rights abusers, and a cesspool of political bias,” Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the UN, said Tuesday at the State Department in Washington. She said the decision was an affirmation of U.S. respect for human rights, a commitment that “does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of human rights. ” – via bloomberg.com

“…An affirmation of U.S. respect for human rights”… guano from one who only dwells in bullshittery can say without cracking up from her own horseshit.

Let’s see – the thousands who have died (and continue to die) in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Yemen at the hands of Washington’s demons who continue to abuse the rights of humans as part of their ‘everyday’, this nutjob lectures the world on human rights. Crickets die as even they can’t stomach such hypocrisy.

41808082142_75326f35ef_zDoubtful this dimwit will ever stand up in the United Nations, as she’s done previously when touting faked Syrian chemical attacks, showing photos of the dead children who met their untimely deaths due to Washington’s bombs, now at 121 bombs being dropped each day. When you’re a Neocon heartthrob, you can offer up about any kind of insane hypocrisy and never be questioned…never have a reporter say to her, ‘what about the children who have died from the 121 bombs Washington continues to drop daily on sovereign nations?’

And when you’re a warmonger extraordinaire as Ms. Haley is, you could give a shyte about the lives of others. You produce a “show and tell” at the United Nations, say you care about others while the administration you serve murders innocents…and no one has the backbone to say…BULLSHIT, to your utterings.

But who enables the likes of this nutjob to be the US Ambassador to the United Nations? Of course, none other than the resident lunatic in the White House.

The Dr Jekyll/Mr Hyde presidency of the guy with orange hair continues. One day he’s seeking to bring about peace with North Korea, laying down a blanket of tar over the wet dreams of Neocon’s who always want the possibility of war with any sovereign nation at hand, 24/7 – the next day he’s spouting off, saying “you have to take the children away”, talking about the immigration policy he’s enforcing.  And lest one thinks it’s just the current POTUS enforcing his own brand of lunacy – the Democrat’s, under the tutelage of the former nutjob holding the office of POTUS, Barack Obama, never cared about detention centers when he was president.

Left, Right – it doesn’t much matter. They’re all deranged and keep us all at each other’s throats, pointing fingers at each other, saying, ‘see, they are the demons’.

But the ordinary citizen didn’t start the wars in the Middle East; the ordinary citizen hasn’t much of a care of other citizens in sovereign nations far from America, except maybe only that they can live free from the destruction that comes from Washington’s bombs. The ordinary citizen in America desires a life free to pursue their dreams, unencumbered from propaganda, unencumbered for more of their dollars spent to support Washington’s wars.

How many American lives are lost each day from Washington’s calloused and apathetic treatment of its own citizens?  Far too many.

The homeless, the uninsured, those holding down pitifully low-paying jobs at worldwide corporations where CEO’s make billions, hundreds of times more than the yearly salary of their average worker, with some of the employees who must subsist on a wage where food stamps are needed to make ends meet  – the mantra to make America great again is as cold to the ordinary citizen as the winter’s wind.

When the POTUS brags about the huge win for the military industrial complex, with over $717 Billion for fiscal 2019 alone awarded to them with taxpayers’ monies, this isn’t making America great again…it’s setting the stage to waste more lives in countries far away, sacrificing the lives of many of its citizens at home.

Like Bush and Obama before him, this current charlatan in the White House is hailed as some sort of knight on a white horse who is here to save the average American, by decimating other nations into oblivion.

Until Trump has his meeting with Jesus (if he were to ever allow such a meeting to happen) coming to an understanding that his entourage of death loving lunatics in his administration are nothing more than death loving lunatics, Americans will continue to suffer, continue to struggle, continue to bear the weight of policies that promote the death of innocents in other countries, ignoring the poverty of its’ citizens, ignoring their needs, ignoring their very lives.

And still, Ms. Haley speaks of the United States respect for human rights!
