When All Else Fails, They Take You To War!


  • When All Else Fails, They Take You To War!

    Generally speaking, the tenor of my commentaries reflects the severity of my beliefs. And recently, fears, which is why the past few weeks have spawned some of the deepest, and most serious, articles of my career. To wit, in the past two days alone, I published “the most important article I’ve ever written,” regarding my staunch belief that all hope for America will be lost if Hillary Clinton is elected; and “frankly, I’m terrified,” on how rapidly civility is collapsing in this historic political campaign, which is rapidly turning into the most polarizing political event since the Vietnam War – and perhaps, given the ugly direction things are turning, the Civil War. Not to mention, last week’s “mark this date, global war has begun” – of how, politically, economically, and monetarily, the “every man for himself” syndrome has taken hold; to the point that, frankly, it’s difficult to envision a scenario where major military confrontations do not result.

    To that end, we are less than four weeks from what will unquestionably be a major inflection point in American – and global – history. Frankly, even my mettle is being weakened, as the relentless media attacks on Trump explode – whilst criticism of the Clinton cabal is essentially non-existant – depicting just how brainwashed, bribed, and entitled the Exceptional States of America have become, despite a mountain of evidence that its best days long ago passed, with its unequivocally “worst days” dead ahead. In the case of the “1%,” the unprecedented wealth disparity they have enjoyed has caused them – led by criminal “leaders” like the Clintons – to become so drunk on ill-begotten wealth and power, they will do anything to maintain it. As for the 99%, they have become so dependent on the nanny state; and so impoverished, mentally and financially; they’ve all but given up. Which is exactly why authoritarians like the Clintons continue to receive votes, despite the indisputable failure of their policies. Not to mention, a record of criminality and abuse of power that Trump couldn’t match on his worst day. That said, I still hold out hope that Joe and Jane Sixpack will stand up to the tyranny next month, irrespective of the near-term uncertainty – and likely, chaos – a Trump victory would undoubtedly bring. As frankly, the difference between hope for an American resurgence, and a guaranteed trip to the “second world,” will be decided November 8th.

    I mean, just how much more obvious can it be that Hillary Clinton’s Washington wants war with Russia, in its latest – and likely, grandest – attempt to scapegoat the “Commies” for our own policy failures? First, in publicly blaming Russia for Wikileak-reported hacks of the Democratic Party archives. Next, of “humanitarian atrocities” in Syria, resulting in the outright severing of U.S./Russian diplomatic ties. And now, exhorting equally politically desperate “allies” to join the “war effort” – including France, where soon-to-be-deposed President Francois Hollande cancelled a meeting with Putin, supposedly due to Russia’s NATO veto of a French-proposed Syrian no-fly zone; and the UK, which ordered Royal Air Force pilots to fire on any Russian jets considered “hostile.” This, on a day when the U.S. entered another war, in Yemen, where it fired on anti-Saudi Arabian rebels one day after a Wikileak revealed Hillary Clinton’s personal belief that Saudi Arabia, a major Clinton Foundation contributor, has been funding ISIS; and one week after Congress unanimously enacted a law enabling 9/11 victims’ families to sue the Saudi government!

    I mean, just last week U.S. General Mark Milley, in a speech that could have come from a bad movie script, belligerently warned – quite obviously, Russia specifically – that “I want to be clear to those who want to do us harm, and destroy our way of life and those of our friends and allies…the U.S. military…will stop you, beat you harder than you have every been beaten before…We will destroy any enemy, anywhere, any time.” Prompting, in turn, Russia to engage in a massive “bomb shelter” drill with 40 million citizens, whilst repatriating thousands of Russian children studying abroad, and moving nuclear-armed missiles to the Russian/Polish border. This, as foreign minister Sergei Lavrov responded to U.S. bellicosity by espousing “its not just rhetorical Russophobia, but aggressive steps that really hurt our national interests, and pose a threat to our national security” – prompting Duma leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky to urge Americans to vote for Trump, or “risk being dragged into a nuclear war.”
