We allowed a mentally ill bully to take the 2016 U.S. election and become our Commander-in-Chief. This is a man who has never worked a day in his life, was born with a silver spoon sticking out of his face and has used his unearned economic advantages as a weapon to collect an obscene amount of wealth at the expense of working people. He has always used bully tactics and deceit to get what he wants.
Greedy people devoid of compassion inevitably look for a loud-mouthed bully to lead them (actually ride on their shoulders like a fake hero) into their promised land of unlimited wealth, control over fellow citizens and a place of power over all other nations. This serious mental and emotional sickness has been the cause of unconscionable suffering and too many deaths to count throughout human history.
And yet, we allow this despicable behavior to continue. The rest of the planet must view us with a strange blend of fear, repulsion and a feeling of pity. How could we not appear pathetic to everyone else? Why are we still dealing with this sick, overgrown adolescent with a serious mental and emotional deficiency heading our government? It’s literally insane.
The present U.S. administration believes government can be run like a business. Every person with a working mind who pays attention to history understands this is fantasy – nightmare fantasy. And the greedy, control-obsessed people running the show here in the U.S. have found the ultimate puppet – someone obsessed with boundless desire who has no sense of morality and with just the proper amount of intelligence, enough to think he’s smart, but not enough to understand that he’s just a marionette dancing to his masters machinations.
He is using his infamous bullying tactics on everyone he comes into contact with – except for those who are more dangerous than he is. Those are the people he admires, the “tough” guys who will “out-crazy” their opponents no matter the consequences.
He will not bully the Chinese into playing his games, at least not to the extent he believes. They will allow him to believe he gets over on them as they laugh at him and continue to make deals with the other BRIC nations and all of the countries he helps alienate the U.S. from.
He will not bully the Venezuelan people into following a racist, money- and power-hungry puppet of the U.S. The majority of the Venezuelan people know Guaido is a snake oil puppet of the U.S. and still support Maduro. Don’t believe the pathetic propaganda of the U.S. corporate media.
And he will not be able to bully the Iranians. His handlers need to shorten the marionette strings and prevent this imbecile from actually starting a war he can’t win. He is delusional and is as dangerous as the sane people who didn’t vote for him feared. Hopefully, there are still enough sane, intelligent people left in the U.S. government to understand that war never solves anything (it only destroys civilization and changes the random borders we obsess over) and that having the biggest gun doesn’t guarantee victory. No one wins in war.
Here is an interesting blog post that shines a different light on what’s going on in the Gulf of Oman:
June 22, 2019
Sooner or later the US “maximum pressure” on Iran would inevitably be met by “maximum counter-pressure”. Sparks are ominously bound to fly.
For the past few days, intelligence circles across Eurasia had been prodding Tehran to consider a quite straightforward scenario. There would be no need to shut down the Strait of Hormuz if Quds Force commander, General Qasem Soleimani, the ultimate Pentagon bête noire, explained in detail, on global media, that Washington simply does not have the military capacity to keep the Strait open.
As I previously reported, shutting down the Strait of Hormuz would destroy the American economy by detonating the $1.2 quadrillion derivatives market; and that would collapse the world banking system, crushing the world’s $80 trillion GDP and causing an unprecedented depression.
Soleimani should also state bluntly that Iran may…
