Who let this retard loose? He didn’t just dump on his desk, he dumped on the fluttering tatters of civilization and sanity. This article isn’t the most recent but it’s one of the best.


Will the u.S. congress do anything constructive? Unlikely. The u.S. public? Nothing. Well, maybe some will dust off their pink pussy hats.

Can our collective insanity support earth and animal life for a Hawking hundred years? 50, 10? Why?

And the folks are getting groggy
I've lived here all my life and I should know.”

There is at least one supremely sane leader: Angela Merkel. Her statement (post Trump visit) Europe “really must take our fate into our own hands.” hoisted sanity's banner high. Now the next raising could - should? - see Europe turning its back on the u.S. while extending its hand to Russia as it simultaneously pulls out of NATO, an organization bloated by the u.S. far beyond its intended boundaries and morphed by the u.S. into Russia's adversary.

If any of you have an interest in why Trump? and why the return of hate Russia? take a few minutes to read W. T. Whitney’s entire essay, essentially a review (with which I’m in total agreement) of Dan Kovalik’s new book. Amazon has the book here - get hold of it, read it, know what the u.S. is up to, has been up to for years.

The book:


Whitney’s essay:



MAY 30, 2017

Why Does the United States Beat Up On Capitalist Russia?


The Cold War we are familiar with ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union. In his new book “The Plot to Scapegoat Russia,” lawyer and human rights activist Dan Kovalik writes about a new Cold War against Russia – and about the peace that never came. He discusses the role of the Democratic Party and the CIA, but his book centers on explaining why hostilities resumed.


Now, the next sane step: European nations, setting an example for all other nations, to begin expelling all u.S. military from their territories while occupying and utilizing those u.S. bases for their own benefit.

Why not?

Thanks, zapdam. Yes, I decided to "check in" once in a while although it looks as if most people have deserted TH blogs for the social networks, or maybe it's a reflection of a general and generally morbid despair.

How Do We Take Back the Military From the Billionaire Owned Military Industrial Complex?

Thom plus logo Democrats (Bernie & Lee) in the senate proposed legislation saying what the Constitution already says: that Trump can't go to war with Iran without congressional authorization. Every Republican on the committee, except Rand Paul, voted against it.
