Executive orders we’ve all been waiting for (and fearing).

  • From this day forward the former United States of America will be known as The United States of West Israel (USWI).
  • Within 30 days the former Iran will be known as North Israel.
  • The 50 five-pointed stars of the present holy banner will be retired and replaced with a single large, gold-tone Star of David.
  • The Right Honorable Jarhead Krapner will immediately occupy the newly established office of Chancellor, second in command only to that of the Fuehrer-for-Life (formerly known as President).
  • The present U.S. Congress will immediately retire. The Israeli Knesset will assume all functions of that former but now useless body.
  • The USWI national anthem will be the same as the Israeli national anthem, HaTikvah, which means “The Hope” in Hebrew.
  • Those NFL players who do not salute, stand and sing when the new anthem is played (both before and after each game) will be immediately fired and forever known as sons-of-bitches (which epithet will be tattooed onto each SOB’s forehead).
  • Those who oppose these grand Executive Orders, including dissenting USWI Jews, will be transported by cattle car to the nearest newly constructed concentration camp and held without food or water until ovens are completed.

Israel is already a terr. of the us. They've shown it in so many ways as can't be counted. The most odious though has to be this little piece of legislation working it's way through congress now.

Nope.

I can agree that israel has an undue influence in our body politics and that at times the tail does appear to wag the dog, but it seems to me you're bordering on the same type of conspiracy theories as (say) the storm front or the creative alliance.

The potus does at the moment have a brown nose from kissing asses but to me the idea of a white nationalist actually signing over the us. to a zionist jewish state as laughble.

The only reason israel has any power at all is because the population in this country are so willfully if not blissfully ignorant of what is actually going on in the mideast. And if they did realize I like to think israel as israel now stands wouldn't exist for very long if they could continue to exist at all. Yeh, but that's only in my dreams because the american people don't want to know truth, that makes things too inconvenient for themselves and besides they like to be able to sleep at night dontcha know.

How Netanyahu Pulls Trump’s Strings
By Robert Parry, Consortium News. “Netanyahu has been pulling Trump’s strings on almost every foreign policy issue. Arguably, the puppet/puppeteer relationship began much earlier, but I’ve been told that Trump bridled early on at Netanyahu’s control and even showed a few signs of rebellion…” Read the rest of this entry

Here are the last few lines from Robert Parry's essay plus some more "go to's"

(QUOTE)

Those moments of American humiliation – as almost all 535 members of Congress act like puppets on invisible strings – represent the actual subservience of the U.S. government to a foreign power. And that power is not Russia.

President Trump is just the latest American politician to have his strings yanked by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu.

I agree alberto, israel does have an undue influence in our politics. And that trumpkof certainly is like a child that's distracted by the next shiny bobble he sees but he is surrounded by major and generals who know better than loosening the running war between iran and israel. They are after all still trying to figure out what to do about the what 7 or 8 wars we're already involved in in that part of the world. Although if we're trying to figure out how to unite the shiite and the sunni then just let israel and us. have a go at iran. Can't you just see that scenerio, all of the mideast and most of northern africa aligned against israel and who ever else is stupid enough to get roped in as allies with the us./israel.

I think the majors and generals really are worried about korea, and rightly so by my estimation, it's a bit of left over trivia from ww 2 and the cold war years that has never been cold or over by any estimation. And now with two wayward petulant children in charge..........everyone is keeping their fingers crossed.

So I do think the majors and generals will keep a check on israel inre to iran whatever our idiot politicans may want to do. They've a lot more seriously pressing problems to deal with then iran.

Yes, the most immediately pressing problem is Trump but it looks as if Trump himself will take care of that particular problem shortly. And then will begin the perhaps even more serious problem - problems - of a Pence presidency.

At bottom, though, the real problem is the u.S.' passive, ignorant, selfish public. The u.S. and its "allies" are busily killing others around the globe while the u.S.' own people beat the drums for health care, etc. Sure, fair, affordable and decent health care for all is important but if the u.S. weren't spending billions killing others there'd be money to spare for health care, infrastructure repair, etc.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised but still it kinda amazes me how dull and unthinking the sheep and cattle are. Twice in this thread we have mentioned a direct attack against one of the suposedly most deeply held tenents of 'the american' way and what is heard in return? Pleats about racism or being anti-semitic.

A few words from Paul Street may awake those that can still think for themselves.

"The U.S. Empire has no clothes? Its putting its worst possible public relations foot forward? That’s not all bad. Who wants Uncle Sam more decently clothed? Let this vicious Empire stand more accurately exposed as the racist, classist, sexist, criminal and eco-cidal prison, police and pariah state that it really is. Who wants the “adults in the room” – the real and “responsible men of power” – to run this morally failed Mafia state with more outward acceptability and effectiveness than it deserves? Let the de-legitimizing stink and stain of America Disgraced spread far and wide. Let the Orange Caligula spark heightened mockery and rage, fueling a new popular will to confront American empire and inequality at home and abroad. And along the way, let us form the kinds of social and political movements that are up to tackling what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called the “real issue to be faced” – the “radical reconstruction of society itself” (something far more serious and challenging than “punching Nazis,” by the way) – beneath and beyond the big money, big-media, major party candidate-centered “quadrennial electoral extravaganzas” (Noam Chomsky) that are sold to us as “politics,” the only politics that matters."

Thanks for the comment, rs allen. There's so much wrong with u.S. society, with the nation in general. Where to begin? I think a start would be with the constitution. The country desperately needs a new one or at the very least a comprehensive revision of the present, outdated one. I have no confidence that its people are capable of the task. Secession? That, too, seems to me unlikely but I'd sure like to see it happen. I'm dreaming, though. The chance of either - a new constitution or secession - is right about zero.

Referring to one of your previous comments, this is worth reading:

Afghanistan: Where Empires Go to Die

Thursday, 17 September 2009 19:22By Dahr Jamail, t r u t h o u t

I posted the following several years ago. Few, if any, seemed interested. Here it is again without updating.

The U.S.’s representive government does not seem to be working - not in its response to Al Qaeda (and terrorism) and certainly not in its laggard and inadequate response to recent devastation that both natural and man-made disasters have occasioned. These failures of government, especially at the federal level, challenge all of us to consider changes that would make government work for the greater benefit of the people - changes that might also encourage more active citizen participation in the process of government.

The USA has again embraced a tar baby, this time in Afghanistan and the Middle East, with no honorable means of disengagement in sight. Any response needs to concentrate on long term solutions that might prevent future administrations from following similar destructive schemes.

I see a reform of the political system as absolutely essential - particularly a reform directed toward securing better qualified, better informed and more honorable people to serve in appointive and elective office - people who would be more likely to place the long term good of the people foremost. Is it too optimistic to think that those in political office might seriously consider promoting substantive reform? It calls for imaginative, audacious leadership - a deplorable scarcity.

I think of "long term solutions," "fundamental change," and the Founding because they are important - vitally important. Anyone engaged in political action would do well to have a solid foundation in America’s early history, particularly the fascinating saga of the struggle for the Constitution. As Bernard Bailyn reminds us: "We must get the two-hundred-year-old story straight, in some way, in order to make sense of our own world." None of the founders, certainly not Madison, thought of the Constitution as a sacred document. It aches for a few fundamental changes - and soon.

Here, then are some of my suggestions for change, by no means exhaustive. I consider the first three to be the most urgent. Please consider discussing these ideas with friends, neighbors and associates, promoting those that appeal to you. Most of them would require a change to the doddering, old and justly venerated Constitution:

1. Restriction on the number of times that a person may hold federal elective office. I'd hold it to two terms, period, with one exception permitted - a person who has held federal elective office for two terms could subsequently contend for and occupy the office of president for two terms. (I'd prefer, though a single six year term for president, no re-election).

2. An exemption-free draft for all able-bodied citizens. No exemption for members of congress or White House staff. No exemption for college students (grossly unfair and discriminatory). No exemption, period, except for health or disability.

3. Legalization and strict governmental control of the sale and consumption of drugs.

4. Transparency in government to include (a) declassification of ALL official government records five years after the date of their origin (exact, uncensored and unaltered duplicates might be filed, at the time of their origin, with a special archivist and made readily available to the public after the five year period has expired) and (b) immediate and unrestricted access to all files, records and offices of any federal department (when expressly authorized by a vote of thel House) by a standing committee of five House members composed of three from the majority party, two from the minority, all of whom have been sworn not to divulge sensitive information.

5. Elimination of the Electoral College allowing presidential elections to be decided directly by a majority of the popular vote.

6. Revision of the system for electing Senators so that, in so far as possible or practical, Senators would represent all the people, fairly and equally (each Senator would ideally represent the same number of people), through election by national or regional, rather than state, constituencies. This might prove the most difficult change to bring about, but one of the most important. Alternatively, each state might retain its two senators, as prescribed by Article V, but Senators would have weighted votes based on their state's population. If all else fails, the Senate could be relieved of all real power becoming an advisory body only.

7. Elimination of the unconscionable (and growing) disparity in the distribution of wealth. This would require an aggressive, vigorous policy of progressive taxation and absolute limitations on inheritance. A wealth tax to replace income tax.

8. Elimination of primary elections for national office with candidates to be nominated by their political parties.

9. Supreme Court nominees (maybe candidates for all Federal judgeships) to be proposed by the House, vetted by the President and approved by the Senate. For example, the House might be allowed to propose five candidates, the President to select two of the five, and the Senate to approve one of the two (or to reject both in which case the process would begin again). Both the President and the Senate might be required to act within a certain time frame.

10. Equal television time for all major party candidates for Federal elective office.

11. Elimination of special privileges (perks) and "gifts" for all members of Congress. For example, members would be required to get their health care just as any member of the public or the most humble government employee gets theirs. Also, no special clubs or spas for members, no cut-rate dining rooms, etc.

12. Federal regulation of funding for public education that would insure equitable distribution of funds nationwide based solely on student enrollment.

13. A loop-hole free, hard-nosed and effective campaign finance law. This might require that the Supreme Court overturn its recent free speech ruling (the Supreme Court's equation of money with "speech" ) or that congress enact an imaginative law to circumvent its noxious effects.

14. Opportunity for the public to decide directly, perhaps every seven or twelve years, whether or not they would like to convene a constitutional convention for the purpose of revising or amending the constitution. The question might be placed simultaneously on the ballots of each of the states and might require approval by two thirds majority of the national electorate (not the states) to carry.

Remember those old black and white flickering films of trestles collapsing or of two trains colliding? One could not help but watch in awe because there's nothing, absolutely nothing one can do about the wreckage to follow.

Alerto though I think you probably have a few years on me I think you're perhaps in the same shoes I now walk in. These days I've really only got one more river to cross. My day of days long walk with Cesar Chavez are over. The days of my Black Panther and black power confrontations into the face of power have long since past for me and no longer will I storm a bridge for a May Day peace march to end war. I kissed off this fiasco of 'for the people by the people' bullshit after they started shooting down kids on college campuses.

If someone else thinks it's worth while to lay it on line for this morally bankrupt country, the only thing I have left to offer are my seemingly empty words and thoughts.

My days of putting it all out there are over.

And we can bid the US of A a (not so) fond fare-thee-well.

/QUOTE/

Dear White People: Be More Like Gregg Popovich

Shaun King

October 17 2017, 5:50 p.m.

HOW WHITE AMERICANS view their country — and their president — appears to be almost split down the middle. In a recent Gallup poll, 49 percent of white Americans said they do not approve of President Donald Trump’s job performance. Anecdotally, the number sounds high (low, I think King meant-AC2), and I suspect it’s because far too many white Americans have a passive, almost silent disapproval of Trump. They might disapprove, but they aren’t saying so out loud; they simply don’t use their voices, their influence, or their privilege to call Trump out the way he truly deserves.

Enter Gregg Popovich, head coach of the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs.

At a time when black athletes and even black sports reporters are being targeted by Trump, Popovich has spent much of the past year stepping outside of his normally reserved role to use his white privilege in ways perhaps no white man in sports ever has.

On Monday evening, in a conversation with The Nation’s Dave Zirin, Popovich decided to call Trump out with the clearest ferocity anyone could muster. Hours earlier, Trump had said former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush had never called families of fallen soldiers. The lie clearly incensed Popovich — himself an Air Force veteran.

Before the conversation began, Popovich said, “I want to say something, and please just let me talk, and please make sure this is on the record.” He then continued:

I’ve been amazed and disappointed by so much of what this president had said, and his approach to running this country, which seems to be one of just a never ending divisiveness. But his comments today about those who have lost loved ones in times of war and his lies that previous presidents Obama and Bush never contacted their families are so beyond the pale, I almost don’t have the words.

This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others. This has of course been a common practice of his, but to do it in this manner — and to lie about how previous presidents responded to the deaths of soldiers — is as low as it gets. We have a pathological liar in the White House, unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically to hold this office, and the whole world knows it, especially those around him every day. The people who work with this president should be ashamed, because they know better than anyone just how unfit he is, and yet they choose to do nothing about it. This is their shame most of all.

The coach then said “bye” to Zirin and hung up.

A poll about job performance is a far cry from one that may ask about his approval ratings enre to race. Unlike S. King I think the majoity of whites silently APPROVE of trumpkof's well known feelings if we were to limit the poll to race.

As to the idea of fallen heros protecting our american values blah blah blah. I'm not so sure the whole or any part of the thought bears all that much inspection to see how much bullshit that deal is. They undoubtly were willing to put their lives on the line for something, but for ' what american values? ' is always the big unasked and unanswered question. Mean while everyone just blithly salutes and then carries on as if it's as normal as the sun rising in east with no questioning thought.

Rather like the nonquestions about supporting the 'only democracy' in the mideast, people just assume. No thought given to it, no questions asked. No questioning there needed so please pass the butter and the gravy.
