The Empire's Suez Crisis

Dec 16, 2018 - Rogue FBI

As a follow-up to my December 2nd blog post, our major media failed to report that last week:

"The Justice Department and FBI have missed a Wednesday deadline to provide information about the government's mysterious raid on a former FBI contractor-turned-whistleblower's home last month. Sixteen FBI agents on Nov. 19 raided the home of Dennis Nathan Cain, who reportedly gave the Justice Department's Inspector General (IG) documents related to the Uranium One controversy and potential wrongdoing by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The documents in question allegedly showed that federal officials failed to investigate possible criminal activity related to Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and Rosatom, a Russian nuclear company. Its subsidiary purchased Canadian mining company Uranium One in 2013.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, whose panel has oversight of the Justice Department, penned a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Justice Department IG General Michael Horowitz, requesting information on the justification for the raid. Grassley gave Wray and Horowitz until Dec. 12 to respond to his request. That deadline has come and gone, and neither the FBI nor DOJ has produced any documents or response."

Dec 15, 2018 - Trump Unleashed

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly will be gone by year's end. This must be good news since the corporate media says it's a bad sign. In recent weeks, Trump upset the Pentagon by talking about cutting spending. Has Kelly kept Trump on a tight leash at the direction of the Deep State? If so, this video clip from the film "Dave" is a great depiction of Trump firing Kelly.

Dec 9, 2018 - A World Gone Mad

News from Marketwatch:

"Three women have come forward with fresh claims about the unprofessional culture at the retail giant [Ted Baker], which is already investigating a raft of complaints about founder Ray Kelvin.

The new allegations include:

• Unwelcome hugging by another senior executive.

• Evidence the company installed a floor sticker with the words “hug here” beside the desk of founder Ray Kelvin.

“We are though taking them very seriously and a committee of the company’s Non-Executive Directors, chaired by Sharon Baylay, has appointed leading law firm Herbert Smith Freehills to conduct an independent external investigation.”

Dec 7, 2018 - Whistleblowers Shipp, Binney, & Kiriakou Chat

Here is the best political YouTube video of the year. Three former senior intelligence officers who blew whistles and were prosecuted discuss corruption in DC.

Dec 6, 2018 - Max Egan Thinks Aloud

Max Egan's videos are fascinating. He is brilliant and shows no respect for official history or corporate media and discusses theories of what happened in our world and what our future holds. Some ideas seem outlandish, but he often states that he's just speculating. Here is a great video about our past.

What if ...?

And one about our future. 

5G and the AI Control Grid

I disagree with his constant attack of the evils of government. We need government and it does great things, like roads, airports, schools, water and sewer systems, crime control ect. The challenge is how to control government, and as Max's warns it often gets out of control. His effort to produce a weekly show is a massive burden, which explains why his shows are repetitive, yet each has interesting ideas.

Dec 5, 2018 - Asylum Games

After hours of corporate "news" reports over the past few years, I assumed federal courts had broaden their interpretation of asylum laws that led to a flood of economic refugees. This comment at unz.com shows I was wrong.

"As an attorney who has done more than a few legitimate asylum cases, I am mystified as to the reasoning of those who think the caravaners qualify. Asylum means Political Asylum which means running for one’s life from government soldiers shooting at you as you flee, or government secret police waiting by the plane to arrest those who lost an election for scheduled execution if they return. Asylum does not mean migrating for more money, or more living space, or escaping crime, or overpopulation, or domestic abuse. While there are a few other groups who may potentially qualify, such as small persecuted religions, or FGM, these always came from Africa. I have never seen a Central American asylum case succeed. Even if legit, they would have to apply in the first country of refuge they reach, which for Hondurans would be any country adjacent to Honduras, not the US.

Central Americans are perfectly aware that they do not qualify for asylum in the US. They know it, their handlers know it, all immigration lawyers including the ACLU know it. What we are seeing is just the latest chapter in the DNC’s effort to replace an uncooperative American voting public with a new more cooperative population of voters. Hence their free transport to Tijuana adjacent to CA rather than to Brownsville TX, which would have been a much shorter trip if applying for asylum was their true purpose. The goal is to get them across the CA border by any means necessary, then get them drivers licenses, then add them to the thousands of other illegals already on the voting rolls there so CA can send more Fake Congress(wo)men to DC."

This is something our corporate media fails to report. None of these "asylum seekers" are eligible for asylum. They have been taught to claim asylum knowing they will be released until their case is heard several months or years later. Meanwhile they get government benefits, housing, and can find jobs in California with their legitimate government issued ID. They never show up for their asylum hearing but that doesn't matter because the USA only deports criminal aliens. Eventually they have children or marry a citizen and get resident visas, or just wait for the next amnesty. Trump ended this game by taking applications at the border but making them stay in Mexico until their case is heard. As a result, they resorted to the traditional method of dashing across the desert to enter illegally.

Dec 2, 2018 - The Clinton Crime Family

As a follow-up to my Nov 26th blog post, our major media failed to report that last week:

"FBI agents raided the home of a recognized Department of Justice whistleblower who privately delivered documents pertaining to the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One to a government watchdog, according to the whistleblower’s attorney.

The Justice Department’s inspector general was informed that the documents show that federal officials failed to investigate potential criminal activity regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and Rosatom, the Russian company that purchased Uranium One."

Dec 1, 2018 - Faux Environmentalist

I suspect that most environmental groups are secretly funded and controlled by the fossil fuel industry. They claim the greatest threat to mankind is global warming and that we must urgently switch to solar and wind energy. But then I read that environmental groups filed successful lawsuits to block two huge wind farms in Southern Nevada, because:

"They raised concerns about the number of eagles that would be killed by the spinning blades and the miles of new roads that would have to be cut through the eastern edge of one of the largest Joshua tree forests in the world. They also worried that the turbines would spoil their pristine desert views and diminish dark night skies with their the blinking red warning lights."

Is that more important than saving mankind from global warming? These projects didn't even require government subsidies! Stopping wind power does preserve business for natural gas and coal companies.

Nov 30, 2018 - Air Launched Tomahawks

While the US Navy procured thousands of Tomahawk missiles for use by ships and submarines, it has not pursued the obvious step of mounting them on Navy aircraft like the F/A-18 to allow strikes farther inland, keeping a carrier well beyond the range of shore launched anti-ship missiles. This would double the strike range of carrier groups that could hit targets well beyond the range of ship or sub launched Tomahawks.

The Navy successfully test launched Tomahawks from an A-6 decades ago. (pictured) This resistance may be a desire for a stealthy carrier-based strike aircraft, which was the idea of the canceled A-12 project and now the F-35. However, a more likely reason is that if aircraft can launch dozens of cruise missiles from well outside a fleet's defensive perimeter, carriers are dead!

Nov 28, 2018 - Poodle Shooter Bullets

Long time readers of G2mil know that I've often criticized our military's reliance on the small 5.56mm round for infantry rifles, which have become carbines. In my book, I suggested adding a couple 8.6mm LM rifles to each infantry squad that can easily penetrate body armor, doors, walls, and cars. I recently found this excellent video that shows no 5.56mm round can penetrate Russian body armor, even if fired at just 15 yards away.

Nov 26, 2018 - Deep State Prosecutor 

YouTube recently banned one of its most popular channels, Infowars hosted by Alex Jones. He was a continual critic of the corrupt Clinton Crime Family. That isn't Alex Jones' description, but a term publicly used by James Kallstrom, a former head of the FBI's New York City office. If you are unfamiliar with Clinton laundering over a billion dollars in foreign bribes, watch this interview with retired CIA officer Kevin Shipp. 

Hidden in the news today:

"Former Infowars Washington bureau chief Jerome Corsi is in plea negotiations with special counsel Robert Mueller, a source with direct knowledge tells ABC News.

Last week, when ABC News asked if he would be open to making a plea deal with the special counsel’s office should they charge him in coming days, Corsi replied, “What’s there to be a plea deal with?” and expressed his suspicions about the possible charges investigators may claim against him.

“They said I didn't commit any crimes. I can't remember all my emails I can't remember all my phone calls, [and] I tell them that. It's impossible; it's a perjury trap from the moment you get going,” Corsi said."

Since Corsi had no contacts with Russians and wasn't part of the Trump campaign, rumors are this is part of Robert Mueller's secret mandate to punish anyone who attempts to obtain the "Clinton e-mails" from FBI, NSA, or foreign sources. Even if Corsi was trying to obtain them, that is legal for a journalist. These include secret e-mails copied from Hillary's Clinton's home computer hard drive that document massive corruption of the Clintons and a dozen of high-level officials in the Obama administration.

The FBI has copies but keeps them locked up. Congress subpoenaed the FBI to turn over the e-mails, but the FBI refused! No legal argument was made, they just defied our elected Congress. Republican leaders demanded that then Republican US Attorney General Jeff Sessions force the FBI to comply and punish those who refused. Sessions refused to do anything, and nothing has happened since he recently departed. 

In summary, there is evidence of massive corruption by a dozen powerful Democrats, yet the FBI refused to refer criminal cases for prosecution. Republican leaders openly demanded to see the evidence, but the FBI refused to comply, and the Republican Attorney General refused to take action! President Trump refused to do anything either! Were they blackmailed? 

Meanwhile, Deep State selected special prosecutor Robert Mueller, somehow appointed by a Republican Administration two years ago to investigate bogus claims of Russian interference in the election, found nothing. Instead of ending his mandate, he established himself as a permanent Deep State prosecutor who silences critics and journalists to protect corrupt politicians.

Nov 25, 2018 - Atlantis Found?

The great thing about YouTube is that anyone can post well researched documentaries. You don't see these on TV news since the producer has just a few hours to put a report together, has no background and little interest in a topic he was assigned, and knows to avoid issues not approved by court historians. YouTube allows anyone to post findings, without self-censorship (in most cases) and after hundreds of hours of independent research. For example, watch this interesting short historical documentary.

Nov 20, 2018 - Of Interest to People Who Think

Here is a great YouTube video about our uncertain future. He begins by explaining his personal experience with ET research, but continues with a fascinating review of how technology is replacing most jobs and allows continual surveillance of citizens.

Nov 19, 2018 - Robotic News Anchor

Famous anchorman Walter Cronkite correctly described modern news anchormen (and women) as news readers. They play no part in assembling and editing news stories, but just read teleprompters. 

A human-like robot can do this as China just proved. This news reading robot can work 24/7 for no pay or benefits. I like the idea because it honestly shows how our "news" is produced and presented.

Nov 18, 2018 - Real National Defense

President Trump is mostly talk and no action. Despite promises to seal the border, the Border Patrol arrested 51,000 people crossing illegally during the month of October, double the number from October 2017, and higher than when Obama left office. Half were children, who are not crossing to work. Nobody knows how many slipped past, but probably more than were arrested, which is why they keep coming.

Trump recently overrode bad advice from his imperial minded Generals and ordered some 5800 active duty troops to the border. The Department of Defense employs over 2,000,000 full-time uniformed and civilian personnel, yet our corporate media complained this would strain the force and costs lots of money. Trump marginalized the effort by limiting their role to simple engineer tasks, then the Pentagon announce that most will be sent back home by December 15th. It is all a ruse!

If Trump were serious, he would order at least 10,000 troops permanently moved back to the border to help defend the USA from invasion. This is not illegal like our corporate media implies, and does not mean US troops will confront US citizens, as this article explains. Guarding the Mexican border was the US Army's primary peacetime mission until 1940, which is why we still have several military bases along the Mexican border that can accommodate these 10,000 border troops!

If President Trump is worried about weak legal challenges, he can limit troop operations to federal lands. Most of the land along Arizona's border with Mexico belongs to the federal government! Who could object to federal troops protecting federal land from intruders? If you cut through the fence of an American military base you face arrest by American soldiers. That is not considered illegal, so how can anyone object to federal troops detaining trespassers who invade federal property? This would free two thousand Border Patrol agents for duty elsewhere.

Nov 16, 2018 - Patton Was a Psychopath

Most people are shocked when I refer to some American Generals as psychopaths. Here is a good article about documented psychopath General George S. Patton, who wrote a poem about the horrors of peace after World War I. His anti-social views never impeded his US Army career, and was made a hero despite his mental illness. Historians agree that his success was due to excellent staff officers, while Patton roamed the frontlines enjoying the destruction and seeking fame. Nearly all the offensive success of his units was against demoralized and fleeing German forces.

Nov 15, 2018 - Tucker Carlson

Tucker Carlson is the most independent and brilliant commentator on television. Watch this great interview where he explains our crazy political world.

Nov 14, 2018 - California Burning.

President Trump rightly criticized fire management in California after the city of Paradise was burned to the ground on November 8th by the fast-moving Camp Fire. This was not a town in the hills as our corporate media implied, but a disaster that leveled a city, killed at least 50 people, and destroyed 7700 homes.

Our corporate media wrongly attacked Trump for criticizing hard working "firefighters" and ignored the real issue. In decades past, wide swaths of forests were routinely clear cut of trees (then replanted with saplings)  to prevent large forest fires and to provide jobs for locals and profits for the timber industry. Ranchers who paid grazing fees to use public lands were allowed to conduct "controlled burns." This removed the dense brush that fuels forest fires so that grass may grow for cattle and deer. Most environmentalist fought these practices as destructive and noted that forest fires are natural. Over the years, they've eliminated most of these fire prevention techniques, which explains the large fires in California. 

Pictures of homes in Paradise for sale on Zillow before the fire indicate a lack of sensible fire codes or enforcement. Communities in fire prone areas are suppose to have rules limiting the number of trees and the proximity of brush close to a home, even just for local fire prevention. Paradise seemed to have none! There is no talk of who is responsible for the destruction of Paradise, so this disaster will reoccur elsewhere again and again. Massive fires then cause another problem. When heavy rains later hit areas denuded of plant life, massive mud flows move downstream and wipe out homes along the way. Apparently all this is okay in California, because it's natural.

The solution is a renewal of fire break logging and controlled burns, especially around and within towns and cities. The state should enforce or enact fire prevention laws where outside inspectors ensue local communities are not run by fools. Eastern Texas is heavily wooded, but you never read about massive forest fires in that well managed area. But most politicians would rather blame "global warming," which somehow doesn't cause large fires each month in Appalachia or other forested areas. California needs an immediate, massive logging effort, but the state is so dysfunctional that no one even discusses this, so expect more stories each month about California burning and people dying from "natural causes."

Nov 12, 2018 - South Vietnam Was Never Democratic

I'm thinking about producing a series of short YouTube documentaries called "Myths of the American Empire." I think it would be popular, yet unpopular with some and I may be banned for hate speech. For example, a widespread justification for the American war on Vietnam is a myth that the USA was defending democratic South Vietnam. This artificial nation was a creation of our CIA and never held open elections.

The USA first supported Ho Chi Minh and his Vietminh army. American OSS officers supplied Vietminh guerillas to fight Japanese occupiers late in WW II. Ho Chi Minh admired the USA and its struggle for independence. (Pictured with a beard among American advisors in 1945.) He spoke excellent French, having lived in Paris for 30 years and served in the French army during WW I. His Vietminh army controlled most of Vietnam by the end of 1945 and was shocked when the USA backed the French army and its colonial lords when they returned in 1946. As a result, Minh accepted aid from China, which angered the CIA, especially when the French were humiliated and surrendered after the Battle of Dien Bien Phu.

Vietnam was temporarily partitioned by a 1954 Geneva agreement to allow French forces to peacefully withdraw from the north until a planned 1956 national election. Nationalist Ho Chi Minh was the most popular candidate in both the north and the south, despite a massive CIA smear campaign. The CIA promoted Ngo Dinh Diem as the leader for Vietnam, who was living in the USA after fleeing Vietnam. He was from northern Vietnam, a former senior administrator in the French colonial administration, collaborated with the Japanese during World War II, and was Catholic. 

Everyone knew that Ho Chi Minh would easily win any election, so the Americans claimed violations of the 1954 agreement made a national election impossible. The CIA formed a South Vietnamese government and held elections where Diem won unopposed. His government proved corrupt and dysfunctional so was unable to effectively fight the popular independence movement of Ho Chi Minh. Diem was a patriot who hated Vietnamese fighting each other so pursed a deal to unify Vietnam. As a result, the CIA organized a coup and assassinated its puppet president, and anointed a new one, who later won a presidential election with no opposition.  

South Vietnam (which never existed before and was never recognized by the UN) was a CIA creation that never had popular support and never held free democratic elections. This is why the South Vietnamese Army was ineffective. It was mostly filled with draftees who refused to die for an American puppet regime, and were led of politically connected officers dedicated to profiteering from the massive American aid. The truth is that the USA never fought to defend a democratic South Vietnam, because it never really existed.

Nov 11, 2018 - Israeli Spying and Political Manipulation in the USA

You probably didn't read or hear about one of the biggest political stories of the year. A detailed documentary was released with footage from a deep uncover reporter that reveals mass bribery of the US Congress our media and FBI ignore. This is the most important thing to watch this year.

Nov 5, 2018 - Are Flu Shots Dangerous?

This short video by a medical doctor about the dangers of flu shots is interesting. I find it odd that each year a new vaccine is needed against the mostly likely flu strain. There is never a year when the threat is low or strain uncertain so they announce one is not needed, nor a year when two shots are needed because of two possible flu strains. 

I see the Google/Youtube censor machine includes flu shot advocates who know what is best for us to see. If you search the title of that video "The Real Truth Behind Flu Shots" the first search result to appear is "Common Myths About Flu Shots" that has only 445 views. The video searched by its title is found way down the list at #23 even though it has 327,000 views. There are lots of other anti-flu shot videos by doctors on Youtube. Read the comments after these videos from healthcare professionals.

Nov 4, 2018 - Now 112 Battles Lost

FSB Rifle Overrun - During the early morning hours of February 11, 1970, Fire Support Base Rifle was overrun by the NVA. Eleven Americans were killed and the base leveled.

Aerial Ambush over the DMZ - Before the 1972 NVA Easter Offensive, the NVA secretly moved several big SA-2 surface-to-air missile systems all the way down to the DMZ. On February 17th, 81 SA-2 missiles were unleashed at attacking American F-4 fighter-bombers, downing three of them and damaging several others.

The list of 112: Lost Battles of the Vietnam War

Nov 2, 2018 - They Hated Us

Here is a great, short interview about a Vietnam veteran's experience in that "war." After arrival he quickly realized the effort was pointless because the local South Vietnamese hated American troops, and for good reasons! This disaster was repeated in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Nov 1, 2018 - Surviving the Matrix

I recently stumbled upon Max Egan's brilliant shows, like this one. If you watch more of Max you realize he is fearless and will probably get banned by Youtube. Some of his views are too "unconventional" to me, but I don't know everything. Whatever you think, he provides great insight with the world's best graphics.

Oct 29, 2018 - The Caravan to El Norte

The horde of some 7000 illegal immigrants marching north is interesting. Horde is a correct English term for them, not caravan; check the links if you doubt. This seem like a funded political stunt, but it is uncertain if it will hurt or help President Trump. There are lots of stories of the horde receiving food and cash. This might be private charity or a Soros funded open borders NGO operation. Keep in mind that an equivalent number of illegal immigrants cross the border every week and imperial Washington pays no attention. Nevertheless, if Trump does nothing about this overt invasion his support will fall. He has done a few small things about illegal immigration, but nothing serious, like permanently placing the regular US Army back on the border.

The obvious step is to close the border crossing as the invading horde approaches, as Trump has threatened. If they can't cross they can't request asylum, but they can still cross the fence line. Yet Trump would score points and the local Mexican economy will suffer, which explains why the Mexican government tried to defuse this issue by offering asylum and aid to these invaders. Most refused since pay and welfare benefits in Mexico are very limited. If the horde cannot play the phony asylum/open borders game allowed by Washington, it will disperse, fall off the news, then cross over in small groups once the border reopens.

A bold option would be a national emergency executive order to quickly return these stranded tourists home. Guards could escort the invaders across the border and place them on buses. A private security guard company could be hired to comply with international law. These would not be "federal officials" so can ignore any verbal requests for asylum. The buses would travel to the nearest airport as people are loaded on military C-130s for a trip to "New York." Three hours later they would land at the American run airbase in Honduras where chartered buses load them up for a ride somewhere outside the base. Problem solved! All 7000 could be back in Central America within 48 hours before the media figures out what happened or Deep State federal judges can act to stop it. Trump would be hailed a hero as most Americans cheer and even Latin Americans giggle. 

Oct 28, 2018 - Debunking a Century of War Lies

Watch this great documentary by Corbett about how propaganda was used to fool most Americans into supporting every war this past century.

Oct 23, 2018 - A Typical Investigation.

The great movie "Back to School" shows a common government/military "investigation" of powerful people. In this short clip, an elderly multi-millionaire student who donated millions to his university is accused of academic fraud. A professor demands the Dean investigate, so he does.

Oct 22, 2018 - Life in a Police State

Did a constable candidate live in North Las Vegas for 30 days?:

"Police this week searched for evidence of residency during raids of two homes connected to North Las Vegas constable candidate Jimmy Vega. Officers from the Metropolitan Police Department on Thursday searched a Las Vegas home on Impressario Court owned by Vega’s fiancee and a North Las Vegas home on Journey Way, where Vega says he rents a room. Investigators looked for evidence to determine where Vega lives, according to search warrants obtained by the Review-Journal.

Following complaints submitted by former Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins, Vega was briefly investigated by the state in August to determine whether he lived in North Las Vegas for at least 30 days when he filed for office. Vega, 51, said he thought the matter was settled after the secretary of state’s office dismissed the complaint in September, citing a lease provided by the candidate.

“I was already cleared of it, and now it’s resurfaced,” he said. Secretary of state spokeswoman Jennifer Russell said the office has nothing to do with the current investigation into Vega. Police took five computers, two copies of lease agreements and a candidate packet from the North Las Vegas home, the search warrants show. Authorities took two smartphones and miscellaneous paperwork from several rooms from the Las Vegas home, according to the search warrants."

October 21, 2018 - No Debate When We Needed One

Paul Craig Roberts penned the only intelligent commentary about the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court:

"There are important issues before the United States having to do with the very soul of the country. They involve constitutional and separation of powers constraints on executive branch powers and the protection of US civil liberty. ... Can the executive branch torture despite domestic and international laws against torture? Can the executive branch spy on citizens without warrants and cause, despite laws and constitutional prohibitions to the contrary? Can the executive branch detain citizens indefinitely despite habeas corpus, despite the US Constitution’s prohibition? Can the executive branch kill US citizens without due process of law, despite the US Constitution’s prohibition? Dick Cheney and University of California law professor John Yoo say “yes the president can.”

Instead of using the opportunity to find out if Kavanaugh stood for liberty or unbridled presidential power, feminist harpies indulged in an orgy of man-hate."

October 15, 2018 - Soros Attempted to Derail Kavanaugh

An excellent example of a foreign billionaire influencing American politics was the ambush of Senator Jeff Flake. He was undecided on the Supreme Court vote when verbally attacked and professionally filmed by a George Soros funded propaganda team whose footage was broadcast nationwide. Soros and his fellow billionaires ensured their corporate media did not report the truth, as this excellent article explains, the protester who cornered Flake was Colombia-born Ana Maria Archila, the co-executive director of the Soros-funded Center for Popular Democracy. The media even directed their paid talking heads to mock anyone who suggested otherwise, including President Trump.

Oct 9, 2018 - Ambassador Supports Coup

Few Americans know that our nation imposed harsh economic sanctions on Venezuela because the Neocons want to overthrow its democratic government. They hate that oil rich Venezuela insists on controlling its oil production rather than allowing big American corporations to run things. Almost three years ago, Neocon puppet Barack Obama declared a national emergency to impose sanctions by designating Venezuela an “unusual and extraordinary threat” to national security, and Trump continued sanctions.

The nuttiest member of the Trump administration is UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. Her latest neo-nazi stunt was to join protestors last week calling for the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Venezuela. She grabbed a megaphone at a tiny New York rally and told the few "protesters" (organized by our CIA) to say the USA is working to overthrow their President. This was so bizarre that our corporate media refused to report it. Jimmy Dore assembled this great video of CNN presenting their expert calling the President of Venezuela paranoid for saying the USA wants to overthrow his government. A few hours later, a different CNN report documented recent efforts by the USA to overthrow his government!

Oct 7, 2018 - Ambassador Threatens to Attack Russia

No one in Congress or our corporate media uttered an objection after a senior Trump administration official threatened a sneak attack on Russia that would ignite a nuclear war over a minor treaty dispute. She was not fired, forced to resign, nor even criticized. 

"U.S. ambassador to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison said Washington remained committed to a diplomatic solution but was prepared to consider a military strike if development of the medium-range system continued."

I suspect everyone dismissed her as a stupid political bimbo for threatening to ignite World War III, but no one can say that or they would be fired or forced to resign, and heavily criticized for insulting a woman.

Oct 6, 2018 - Trump Bashing

President Trump kept his campaign promise to fight for fair trade, and "experts" warned of dire consequences after Trump threatened to increase tariffs on nations with high tariffs on American products. Our corporate media is pro open borders, to include free trade that favors slave wage nations. As a result, they ignored this news:

BEIJING (Reuters) - China will cut import tariffs on textile products and metals, including steel products, to 8.4 percent from 11.5 percent, effective Nov. 1, the finance ministry said on Sunday. Beijing has pledged to take steps to increase imports this year amid rising tension with some of its biggest trade partners, such as the United States.

Earlier in July, China reduced import tariffs on a range of consumer items including apparel, cosmetics, home appliances, and fitness products to fulfill pledges to further open China's consumer market. Import tariffs on wood and paper products, minerals and gemstones will be cut to 5.4 percent from 6.6 percent, the ministry also said in its statement. Average import tariffs on over fifteen hundred products will be lowered to 7.8 percent from 10.5 percent, the ministry said. "Reducing tariffs is conducive to promoting the balanced development of foreign trade and promoting a higher level of opening up to the outside world," the ministry said .

China's cabinet has announced plans to cut tariffs on machinery, electrical equipment and textile products beginning on Nov. 1, as the country braces for an escalating trade war with the United States. The overall tariff level will be reduced to 7.5 percent in 2018 from 9.8 percent in 2017 as a result, the cabinet has said.

Oct 1, 2018 - The Kavanaugh Circus

This is a curious and confusing spectacle. I don't think he's a good pick since like all Supreme "Justices" he's a Deep State sponsored toady with little respect for the US Constitution. But the Deep State allowed this spectacle, probably to embarrass Trump, who they are tying to oust even though he does whatever they demand. Perhaps they worry that Trump may suddenly rebel.

One wonders why Republican Senate leaders allowed this circus to form. When allegations of drunken misconduct arose shortly before the vote, they should have dismissed the matter and moved on, noting there were no police reports or arrests involved, and all this occurred when he was a minor. Case closed! Most Americans consider groping and unwanted kisses by teenagers to be of poor taste remedied with a slap or kick in the shin. It is not "sexual assault." 

Or perhaps they chose to allow the looney part of the Democratic Party to run wild knowing they would unwittingly hurt the Democrats in the upcoming November elections. Or maybe this is a Deep State media diversion to keep the social justice warriors busy with an unimportant issue, so they don't protest Deep State wars, ever growing military spending, soaring budget deficits, or our dysfunctional health care system. Encourage them debate and protest what some guy did as a drunken teenager for the next few weeks and fill our "news" programs with related BS so real issues are avoided during the election campaigns.

Sep 30, 2018 - The History of American/British Propaganda

If you are interested in how our society is manipulated, watch this great four-hour documentary: The Century of the Self. I can't watch something that long in one sitting, but enjoyed 30-minute segments when I found time. It explains the evolution of propaganda, public relations, advertising, and politics that aims to convince the public that democracy works.

Sep 27, 2018 - Hill 830, Another Loss

Assault on Hill 830 - During Operation Greeley, the 4th Battalion of the 503rd Infantry (Airborne) marched through dense foliage in search of the enemy. On July 10, 1967, the battalion encountered NVA dug into Hill 830 and attacked. The battalion was pinned down for hours by heavy enemy fire and suffered 25 killed and 62 wounded until the NVA withdrew at night.

Sep 23, 2018 - The Battle of Leros

I've read much about World War II and watched endless documentaries. I saw a series on Netflix that explains mad imperialist Winston Churchill was not interested in winning the war quickly. He was content to allow the Germans and Russians to slug away for years while Britain secured new colonies by taking possession of all North Africa and several islands in the Mediterranean. The British empire already ruled Malta and Cyprus. Italy had several islands near Turkey that Churchill wanted. (pictured in red) The British attempted to seize one island in 1941 but failed.

After Italy changed sides in 1943, Churchill ordered a major effort to seize these islands, called the Dodecanese Campaign. The Americans knew this effort was pointless and refused to provide support. German forces in Greece intervened and routed the larger British force, culminating with the little known Battle of Leros. In this disaster, some 2800 lightly armed German troops landed haphazardly on the fortress island of Leros defended by over 10,000 allied troops. The British lost 115 aircraft and three destroyers during the invasion. After just four days of fighting, 3200 British soldiers surrendered and the remainder fled.

Sep 22, 2018 - The 9-11 Cover-up

If you still believe the U.S. Government's bizarre tale of what happened on 9-11, read this short summary of the massive effort to conceal the truth.

Sep 17, 2018 - Legal Bribery

Read this great, short explanation of a key problem in our corrupt legal system. Here is part:

"Suppose a federal prosecutor says to a witness, “You are facing life in prison on the charges we have brought against you. But if you ‘cooperate’ with us to get John Doe, we will adjust the charges so that the most the judge can do is send you to jail for only 5 years at most. If you are really ‘cooperative,’ we will recommend that the judge give you the lowest possible sentence, perhaps even probation. Oh, one more thing, we want to make it clear that we do want you to tell the truth.”

This is not a rare event, it occurs in most federal cases, and is the key part when a prosecutor lacks evidence, as in the current case of the Mueller witch-hunt in Washington DC.

Sep 16, 2018 - One More Loss

The Battle for Chu Moor Mountain - In April 1968 near the Cambodian border, the 1st Battalion of the 22nd Infantry discovered well-armed NVA dug into a mountain. They launched several bloody attacks and fended off counterattacks for days suffering 31 killed and hundreds wounded. Other battalions were flown in and suffered casualties until all units were pulled back and a B-52 strike ordered as the NVA withdrew.

Here is an interesting on-line book about NVA fortification techniques during that war.

Sep 10, 2018 - Now 108 Lost Battles

Two more just added to my series: Lost Battles of the Vietnam War. Nearly half these losses were due to the mindless overuse of helicopters in Vietnam. Our military didn't employ mounted cavalry in Vietnam despite its advantage of greater mobility because encountering an enemy while atop horses is foolish. For unknown reasons, senior officers failed to grasp that landing helicopters full of troops near enemy forces was equally foolish.

The Battle for Nui Yon Hill - On May 5, 1969, units of the 1st Squadron, 1st Cavalry were ordered to clear Viet Cong from Nui Yon Hill, which they recently captured from the ARVN.  (pictured) After the initial assault failed, the 3rd Battalion, 21st Infantry Regiment was air assaulted in to reinforce the 1st Cavalry. The hill was taken, yet units suffered 40% casualties with 28 GIs killed and hundreds wounded.

Operation Beau Charger - This was part of a larger operation near the DMZ. The Marines launched 14 helicopters from ships offshore to deposit 1st Battalion, 3rd Marines into LZ Goose. Unfortunately, the NVA were there and opened fire on the helicopters as they landed on May 18, 1967. Half were damaged and only a few dozen Marines landed. This quickly became a complex rescue operation that cost the lives of 85 Marines with hundreds wounded.

Sep 9, 2018 - Constant Propaganda

Demonizing Iran is continuous in the American media. Iran ships weapons to its allies in Syria and Lebanon, which is not illegal, and is a small fraction of the tens of billions of dollars in weapons the USA ships to dictators and terror groups in the Middle East. In a recent story, Iran used two huge 747 commercial aircraft that landed at the big Beirut airport to deliver manufacturing tools. The aircraft took the safest route by flying over Turkey to avoid Israeli fighter aircraft that conduct illegal flights over Lebanon and Syria every day.

This is not news, except at Fox News, where they report anonymous "intelligence" sources explained this was "smuggling", even though it is not banned and Fox presented no proof of dangerous cargo. A route map of these scheduled flights showed these big aircraft mostly flew over our NATO ally Turkey and near a US Air Force base. Yet Fox warns of devious Iranians: "A regional intelligence source who asked to remain anonymous said: “The Iranians are trying to come up with new ways and routes to smuggle weapons from Iran to its allies in the Middle East, testing and defying the West’s abilities to track them down.” The article does not explain why NATO and the US Air Force is unable to track huge Iranian 747s flying over Turkey.

This news report notes: "The United States is Lebanon’s primary security partner, according to the State Department. Since 2006, the U.S. has provided Lebanon over $1.7 billion in security assistance." Yet the news report fails to highlight this irony. The USA sends millions of dollars in military aid to Lebanon, yet it can't persuade its government to inspect Iranian cargo aircraft landing at its main airport. This entire Fox News report is fake news.

Sep 8, 2018 - More Lost Vietnam Battles

Two more added to my series: Lost Battles of the Vietnam War 

Operation Badger Tooth - The NVA spent a year covertly fortifying the village of Tham Khe. The day after Christmas 1967, the 3rd Battalion, 1st Marines landed by ship to sweep the area without armor support. The Marines were surprised by heavy enemy fire when they approached Tham Khe, yet kept attacking until the enemy fled, leaving 48 Marines dead and 88 wounded.

Assault on Hill 996 - On July 11th 1969, the 1st Battalion of the Army's 506th Infantry Regiment helicoptered in to take Hill 996. They found lots of fighting NVA who repelled their assault, then counterattacked, killing 20 GIs and wounding 26.

Sep 4, 2018 - Was Hillary Involved in Treason?

Our neocon run corporate media remains focused on ousting President Trump. The current plan is based on the truth that he paid off a sexpot bimbo who he banged years ago to keep quiet during the election. At the very worst, Trump failed to file IRS Form 1099 reporting that payment, and the bimbo should be charged with tax evasion. But this story is spun that Trump interfered with the election by paying off the bimbo, who leaked the story anyway.

Meanwhile, no one pays attention to former career CIA officer Kevin Shipp as he publicly blows the whistle about the biggest bribe in American history. No one disputes that hundreds of millions of foreign money was "donated" to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, and most of that money disappeared into offshore bank accounts. However, no one will report the details provided by Kevin Shipp!

Sep 2, 2018 - John McCain Will Not Be Missed

As a follow-up to my Aug 27th blog, I ask people to name McCain's most important accomplishment during his long political career. They can think of none, but the TV tells them McCain was great because he was a neocon. Senator Paul Laxalt saw more combat than McCain and had an equally long and distinguished career. He was not a crazed neocon so our media barely reported his death last month.

Here are two examples of McCain's bad character just this past year. McCain had always opposed Obamacare and campaigned against it. The Republicans had tried to repeal it for years. The election of President Trump also brought in more Republican congressmen. The House easily repealed it, and the Senate finally had a majority to vote for a partial repeal. This would be a big victory for the Republicans led by President Trump. When the vote was held, McCain shocked everyone and voted against it, thus abandoning his principles and backstabbing his party! This was applauded by the Democrats and the insurance companies who profit from Obamacare. They praised McCain as a "maverick", although everyone knows this was done just to thwart a Trump victory.

On his deathbed, McCain directed his staff not to invite his Presidential running mate Sarah Palin to his funeral. She campaigned for him as a loyal teammate and never said a bad word about McCain during the campaign or after their loss. McCain blamed her for his loss and expressed this in a childish manner. Allow me to summarize his life. John McCain was a selfish, spoiled brat who had no sense of decency. 

Sep 1, 2018 - Trigger Happy FBI Bro

My July 4, 2017 blog post was "Trigger Happy FBI Agent Caused Death." It explained why an FBI agent open fired on a man as he exited his truck with his hands raised. State troopers then open fired and killed the innocent man. Fake news claimed the man was reaching for his gun, but only the "Salt Lake Tribune" and a few other small newspapers reported the key facts that he was fired upon while his hands were raised and never brandished a weapon, which can be seen in the actual video. He did grab his chest after he was shot.

I was impressed that the Feds charged FBI agent Joseph Astarita with lying to investigators after he denied firing the shots, but I'm not surprised that he was found not guilty and that major media continues to print fake news that his victim was reaching for a gun. However, his trial revealed an disturbing cultural aspect of the FBI. Astarita was an agent for 13 years and a member of the FBI's elite Hostage Rescue Team, and missed when he tried to shoot this man. When asked by investigators to explain what happened, Agent Astarita replied: "You don't get to ask me that, bro, bro, you can't ask me that now. No, bro, we're good." 

Aug 27, 2018 - The Truth about John McCain

John McCain was a leading American neocon who always advocated war and ever greater military spending for a growing worldwide empire. This made him a successful politician and explains why our neocon corporate media praises him and refuses to reports facts about his life. By several accounts (“The Nightingale Song” for example) he only got into the Naval Academy for a free college degree because dad and grandfather were admirals, and should have been kicked out several times. He graduated near the bottom of his class and was a lousy pilot who got into trouble often and crashed two aircraft because of neglect. He was shot down on his first tour over Vietnam while bombing a civilian power plant, and getting captured is not heroic.

What happened in captivity is controversial, but upon returning from POW status he passed a physical and regained flight status as a pilot. Yet after he finished 20 years of service that allowed generous retirement pay, he obtained a 100% VA disability rating allowing him to collect some $40,000 a year tax free too! The LA Times mentioned this when McCain insisted he was fit to serve as President. For the past two decades, he hauled in over $240,000 a year from the Feds for military retirement, 100% VA disability, social security retirement, while working full-time in the US Senate. He was paid for being retired, disabled, and gainfully employed! This is textbook case of why our system needs reform to protect taxpayers from rich welfare kings like McCain.

McCain’s loyal wife was disabled in a serious auto accident while he was a POW. Soon after he returned, McCain dumped her for a wealthy woman 20 years younger. The Reagans were so angry they never spoke to him again. He then married his new babe before he officially got divorced, so there’s that bigamy thing. McCain used his wife's family money to run for Congress and quickly got into trouble with the Keating Five scandal. McCain got $112,000 in "campaign contributions" and an equal amount of luxury perks from one of our nation's leading fraudsters. In return, he helped change laws and threatened regulators to allow this multi-billion real estate scam to grow.

I don’t know why any Arizonian voted for this crazed man, especially since he was a big advocate for open borders. At a union meeting, he told workers illegals are needed because Americans are too lazy to work farm fields, even for $50 an hour. McCain never labored his entire life, always on the government dole earning ten times minimum wage worker pay, whose increase he opposed.

McCain grew up wealthy and enjoyed free government health care his entire life, yet thought it nothing workers deserve. While running for President and attacking programs for the poor, a reporter asked how many houses he owned. He was unsure, but thought maybe seven. But his worst damage was to oppose any attempt at world peace, often demanding that the USA bomb the neocon designated villain of the year, currently Iran. McCain was a key player in the senseless deaths of thousands of American GIs and a million foreigners over the past two decades. He will not be missed.

Aug 26, 2018 - Free College?

While I often applaud Jimmy Dore, he also promotes nutty ideas, like free college. That sounds nice, but means the bottom half of Americans who can't enroll due to low test scores would work and pay taxes, while the top half enjoys a free four-year ride in college to do whatever they please! If college were free, millions more aimless, upper middle class Americans would waste four years pursing hobbies to acquire dubious skills that our nation has far in excess, like degrees in: drama, paleontology, women's studies, anthropology, art history, ethnic studies, astronomy, library science, modern dance, and PE. Free college would also bolster our increasingly corrupt and costly university system that employs nearly a million clerks earning six-figures.

The federal government needs to guide higher education with incentives. It should fund education in select areas where our nation lags, like machine tool operators, windmill and solar repair, and perpetually neglected fields like nursing, computer repair, fiber-optic installers, high-power electrical maintainers, and special education. So my "free college" idea is not a four-year fun ride to pursue dreams that will not benefit society, but 2-4 year programs to produce skilled workers needed to fill gaps in our economy. 

The idea that everyone should attend college is nutty as well. Half of American teens struggle to graduate from high school and lack the motivation and basic intelligence to do more than semi-skilled labor. If given a chance with free college, most will just party and play video games for a few years at government expense, until expelled. I think Jimmy Dore would agree if he read these thoughts.

Aug 25, 2018 - Mass Censorship Underway

Watch Jimmy Dore explain the mass censorship of non-corporate media now underway as Facebook and Youtube delete thousands of sites for inappropriate political content. Meanwhile, he shows CNN's blatant lies about everything. Book seller (not publisher) Amazon now bans books too! I don't expect Youtube to tolerate Dore much longer. They already demonetize most of his videos.

Aug 20, 2018 - True Conspiracy Theories

Decades after a major event that made no sense, the truth is often revealed. This is never covered by the major media, but enough evidence is uncovered and published so that anyone can learn the truth. In recent years, two big "conspiracies" have been proven true.

TWA Flight 800 did not explode in mid-air because of an electrical short. It was accidentally hit by a US Navy anti-aircraft missile during a training exercise. An outstanding 2013 documentary: TWA Flight 800 appeared on Netflix, but was removed after just a few weeks. It featured two senior NTSB investigators of TWA 800 who declared the investigation was a cover-up by the Clinton administration, and waited until they retired to speak out. Several books have appeared that provide undeniable evidence, but our corporate media refuses to correct its lies.

The other "conspiracy" is that James Earl Ray did not assassinate Martin Luther King. This was proven in court after he died. The evidence is overwhelming, but our history books will not change. King was about to lead 500,000 Americans on a march to Washington DC where they planned to camp out until changes occurred. Several violent riots had occurred in other cities in recent months, and a half million marchers joined by a half million locals could overwhelm riot police and sack our nation's government. As a result, the Deep State killed King, and used its control of our media to blame Ray.

Aug 19, 2018 - Google is Tracking You

If you have an iPhone or Android phone, Google tracks and records everywhere you go. Google allows you to turn off location tracking, but that is only for certain apps. Other apps continue to track and record your movements. There are complex techniques said to erase your location history, but given Google's arrogance and ties to the CIA, it probably continues to track and record your movements forever.

Aug 13, 2018 - Antifa are Nazis

We are told that the violent "Antifa" movement is "a conglomeration of autonomous, self-styled anti-fascist militant groups in the United States." This is ironic because they employ fascist tactics against opponents, just like Nazi Brown Shirts once did. Nazi means National Socialists, their reforms were socialist, and they demonized Russians too! You never see Antifa hold antiwar protests, even though Nazi's loved attacking and invading other nations.

Ironically, nationalist groups in the USA are often labeled "Nazi" even though they are not socialists. Most had grandfathers who fought Nazis in World War II! When these groups hold pro-American rallies in the USA to oppose corporate efforts to open borders and restrict constitutional rights, they are often attacked by the Antifa thugs funded by billionaires. Corporate media then blames these Americans for instigating violence by holding peaceful rallies.

Aug 12, 2018 - Walk Away from Liberal Intolerance

Yahoo has a great short video by Brandon Straka explaining why he left the Democratic  Party. It has become a party of hate, violence, racism, and intolerance caused by misinformation fed by the corporate media! They refuse to respect opinions and debate issues, but scream at, threaten, and physically attack those who disagree. Democrats demand that people be fired, businesses closed down, speakers banned, websites banned, and white males demeaned because of political disagreements. 

The party has become pro-Empire and supports ever larger military spending while demonizing nations like Russia and Syria. These fake "leftists" attack anyone who supports the Green Party, calling them dupes who help Republicans. Their basic election strategy is to demonize Trump, yet offer no serious proposals to solve problems. As a result, the Democratic Party is quickly losing millions of its sane supporters.

Aug 11, 2018 - Washington Post Urges Coup

As more truth leaks out, the Deep State is worried. The Mueller witch hunt turned up little and Trump remains popular enough to win reelection. Their current strategy is to spend billions of dollars to elect lots more "intelligence" operatives to Congress as Democrats to take control of the House of Representatives and impeach Trump. Meanwhile, one of the Deep State's key propaganda outlets openly called for a coup to overthrow the President.

Aug 10, 2018 - It's All Coming Unraveled 

If you want great insight into the Clinton mafia, listen to this 20-min youtube audio from career CIA officer Dr. Michael Scheuer.

Aug 5, 2018 - Deep State Judges 

This blog routinely explains that open borders is the primary goal of the world's billionaires. In the USA, the first step is a third "DACA" amnesty to allow some ten million more law breakers to become legal, thus encouraging hundreds of millions more to dash across and await their legalization.

Donald Trump angered the Deep State by revoking their puppet Obama's illegal edict granting amnesty to millions of foreigners. Trump agreed with the federal judge who wrote that only Congress can enact laws. However, Trump openly said he'd agree to amnesty for DACA children if legislation also closed loopholes allowing millions of "refugees" and distant relatives of immigrants to flood the USA. This was loudly rejected by the Deep State's political party, where some Democrats demand abolishing ICE to allow open borders. As result, a corrupt Deep State federal judge just ruled that DACA amnesty is now law, because he says so!

This is madness as Africa suffers from a massive population explosion. Millions are flowing into Europe and Latin America where they are bussed northward to the great dumping ground known as the USA. Immigration is not a human right! Citizens have the right to decide who is allowed to enter their nation and immigration must be limited and legal, as clearly explained by the brilliant Hungarian Foreign Minister. The famous leftist union organizer Cesar Chavez agreed. Bernie Sanders agreed. The vast majority of Americans agree, which is why Republicans will retain control of Congress this November, so long as Trump keeps our borders intact.

Aug 4, 2018 - The Next Financial Crisis

Michael Hudson is the most interesting economics writer in the USA. He holds no punches when he exposes the massive corruption in the American financial system that has created a time bomb about to explode.

Aug 3, 2018 - White Monkey

A TV star must do something horrible to lose a top-rated show, unless she is a Trump supporter. Hollywood was looking for an excuse to oust Roseanne Barr. Her top-rated was show canceled for comparing former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to a monkey. Barr defended herself by claiming that she thought Jarett was white. (pictured) I would have been fooled too.

Jul 25, 2018 - Lies About History

I've recommended the great book: "Lies My Teacher Taught Me." I found this interview with the author on youtube. 

I recently stumbled upon the fact that hundreds of ancient Rome coins were unearthed in the Americas at dozens of places over hundreds of years. Most were fakes or hoaxes, but there are several cases with enough evidence to consider it likely they were transported to the Americas prior to Columbus. Of course the guardians of history and archeology never accept changes to the official narrative, no matter the evidence. Most have authored books that would become outdated should official history change.

Jul 22, 2018 - The Deep State Surfaces

Google "Robert Mueller" to discover his career in the Deep State, to include obstructing 9-11 investigations. We are told he is a conservative Republican, so why did Democrat Bill Clinton's Attorney General Janet Reno appoint him as US Attorney for Northern California in 1998! These are powerful and important positions in the federal government that are given to allies! And why did powerful Democratic Senators applaud his appointment as special prosecutor? 

There are three major issues among American voters: 1) Healthcare is too expensive, more than three times higher than any other modern nation; 2) Foreign wars and conflicts are pointless and costly; 3) Mass immigration crowds the nation, reduces wages, and overwhelms local government services. You don't hear about these concerns on your corporate TV or in newspapers controlled by the Deep State, who also control the two major political parties and the federal bureaucracy. For unknown reasons, they do not control Tucker Carlson, as Jimmy Dore explained. Carlson is unlikely to last much longer if he persists telling the truth.

They don't control the current President, which is why Trump's trip to Helsinki to make peace with Russia was marred by two senseless indictments by his own Department of Justice! Even if they are valid, why couldn't they wait a few days until after the President returned? It is obvious the Justice Department is an arm of the Deep State and followed orders to disrupt the President's peace effort, even though they work for Trump as part of the executive branch!

No one knows why Trump does what he does. Is it complex political strategy? Is Trump poorly informed? Does he have mental problems? He is an enemy of the Deep State because he seems to oppose their objectives of world domination and open borders. I write "seems" because his rhetoric is not always matched with action. However, Trump's peace efforts with Russia have crossed the line with the Deep State. I agree with Paul Craig Roberts that if Trump persists, he will be replaced via a coup, especially since Trump is likely to win reelection because no other candidate will address the major issues that working Americans care about.

Jul 20, 2018 - Fraudulent Military Programs

Over the past couple of years, G2mil focused on exposing military programs based on bad science or crazy concepts. These appeared in the blog, but need a central link on the homepage. Here is that link:

Fraudulent Military Programs - ongoing scams

Jul 16, 2018 - Illegal Immigration Replaced Slave Labor

In past blog posts, I explained how illegal immigration is a form of slave labor. It seems powerful people explained this to former President George W. Bush, but didn't tell him not to repeat it in public and that Americans no longer pick cotton by hand. As a result, Bush said this during a speech earlier this year:

“There are people willing to do jobs that Americans won’t do. Americans don’t want to pick cotton at 105 degrees, but there are people who want put food on their family’s tables and are willing to do that. We ought to say thank you and welcome them.”

Bush failed to note that millionaire farm owners pay only $10 an hour with no benefits for these tough jobs, yet most field workers are US citizens or green card holders. Illegals are hired to hold down wages and deter unions and strikes. If they would pay $20 an hour, plenty of Americans would show up to work. Most Americans don't know that millions of white Americans once picked cotton by hand, and picked more than Blacks or Mexicans.

Jul 15, 2018 - Real Organized Crime

Corporate television teaches us that organized crime are local rackets run by Italians. In reality, the world's most powerful people routinely colluded to profit from illegal activities. For example, in 1967 Israel invaded and occupied Syria's Golan Heights. Most of the native people fled or were expelled and Israelis moved in. In 1981, Israel officially annexed the Golan Heights over the objection of the UN and USA, and no nation recognizes this land grab.

For the past several years, lots of oil has been stolen by Genie Oil from under the Golan Heights with no compensation or royalties paid to Syria. And remember that Israel had plans to seize another 25 miles (40km) of southern Syria as a security zone until Russia thwarted that idea. (see my Jan. 29, 2018 blog post) Have a peek at who is paid to overcome political objections and keep this news out of the UN and our corporate media:

Jul 9, 2018 - Please Don't Call an Ambulance!

As a follow up to previous blog posts about America's dysfunctional for-profit health care system, read: 

Badly Injured Woman Begs Passersby Not To Call An Ambulance, Due To Cost

Most ambulance rides in the USA are over $1000, some are twice that amount, and bills of over $8000 are not uncommon. At one time, some cities provided ambulance rides as a free public service, or hospitals provided them for free to boost business. I suspect more than 90% of Americans would agree that their state or federal government should limit ambulance bills to perhaps $500. If this makes companies unprofitable, the government would need a subsidy scheme. The biggest problem for ambulance companies are poor people without insurance, which is why they boost fees for paying customers. The government could pay their $500 if they submit a financial form claiming poverty.

Once the government must pay some of the cost, it will end waste, like when highly paid fire department paramedics show up at the scene to provide care, but don't transport to a hospital because an ambulance is called too. So the patient is double billed, which pleases the ambulance company and the paramedics who prefer to return to their fire station quickly to resume their movie. In many cases, people with minor problems in rural areas could be transported to a local urgent care facility, but are driven to a hospital ER over an hour away because of a wasteful policy that ambulances only transport to hospital ERs.

You don't get a bill when the fire department shows up for a fire, so why when they show up to save a life? In many cases, an ambulance is called because someone is mugged or hit by a car. Why should a victim get billed? In other cases, an ambulance is called for someone who has a minor injury or dizzy spell, but the ambulance employees insist that hospital care is required so they get paid for showing up. Governments can easily control the ambulance racket because they control 911 dispatches, so can negotiate prices and rules for ambulances they dispatch.

Jul 5, 2018 - Tyrant Assad?

Did you know the "evil" leader of Syria lived in London for several years where he studied to become an eye doctor? Did you know he speaks English? This information is allowed on American corporate media, nor on youtube. Thanks to the great Ron Unz, you can watch Syria's President Assad answer questions in English about the fighting in his nation and American politics.

Jul 4, 2018 - NBC Hires News Faker

In my last post, I mentioned the fake news that suddenly appeared to undermine President Trump's peace effort with North Korea. I now learn the sole source of this "news" is Ken Dilanian, the former national security reporter for the Los Angeles Times. He was fired for having a “collaborative relationship” with the CIA. Ken Dilanian was publicly fired from a major newspaper for inventing fake news in collaboration with the CIA, yet was hired by NBC News! Now NBC allows him to write national security articles citing unnamed intelligence sources! The worst part is that dozens of other corporate news organizations cite his NBC stories. If they insist on repeating fake news, they should print this disclaimer at the beginning of his articles:

Warning: This writer was fired by the Los Angeles Times for producing fake news in secret cooperation with the CIA.

Jul 2, 2018 - Peace Lover Trump?

It was nice to see Trump’s sudden return to sanity by holding talks with North Korea. I never understood why he accepted psychopaths like Bolton into his office. One could be cynical (or realistic) and realize that Zionists don’t give a damn about Korea, Iran is their target. Trump can secure peacenik creds and free up forces to focus on Iran. Others note that South Korea’s president walked crossed the DMZ to hug North Korea's leader, and probably told Trump that he can do this with or without him. The neocons realized they need to give peace a chance or get dropped from the game.

It’s a puzzle, but so far it's good news, especially since it showed that never-Trumpers prefer world war rather than congratulating Trump for peace. We didn’t give up anything. I’ve taken part in these war games. South Korean land and airspace is so crowded that war games there are unrealistic and stupid. Our military is better off practicing elsewhere. The Deep State is in shock and counterattacked. Trump's peace effort was widely denounced by their corporate media, and fake news has just appeared from "anonymous intelligence sources" that North Korea is suddenly increasing production of nuclear material. 

Hopefully, Trump will push ahead and learn that he can pull thousands of non-combat GIs out of South Korea to save a couple billion dollars a year and actually improve our combat readiness in Korea! Don't fall for lies that keeping troops in Korea saves the USA money because of contributions from South Korea. It costs a lot more money to maintain equipment and soldiers on the other side of the world, and to pay GIs thousands of dollars a month to live off base. South Korea does not pay any of these costs. Its contributions are paying land rent and base construction payments to South Koreans and bogus contributions like forgiving import fees, income taxes, and on-base sales taxes for American GIs. G2mil published these detailed proposals to cut military fat in Korea over the past few years:

Pull Aircraft and Airmen Out of Osan - now in a kill zone

Close Chinhae Tomorrow - it commands nothing

Cut Army Fat in Korea - 8th Army and Daegu 

Withdraw from DMZ Bases - as ordered

Jul 1, 2018 - Sell!

I once traded stocks. It was fun and I made some easy money, but the events of 2008 shook my faith in the system. It has become a casino run by computers, so great companies with solid profits can lose half their value in a few weeks. The collapse pattern starts when overhyped companies that never made a profit quickly lose value, as they should. As speculative investors see their balance sheet fall and need cash to meet margin calls, they sell their solid stocks to book profits so they don't have to sell and book losses from their speculative ones. Index funds are huge, so when investors sell shares all stocks get sold, even the healthy, profitable ones. Other funds and investors decide to reduce their holdings and begin to sell all stocks, and the downward momentum snowballs. 

Speculative stocks aren't just small corporations. For example, since it went public eight years ago, Tesla's share price has risen nearly 2000 percent and the company is still unprofitable! CEO Elon Musk said he expects Tesla to turn a profit in the third and fourth quarters of 2018. Tesla's stock market value is $56.7 billion, surpassing Ford's market value of $43.2 billion and General Motors' value of $55.5 billion. This is despite the fact that Ford and GM sell several times the number of cars Tesla does, and have consistently delivered profits over the last several quarters. This means that if Tesla helps crash the market, Ford and GMs stocks will fall too!

Most agree the current market is due a pullback. The S&P 500 value remains the same as the beginning of this year. This is the same pattern as 2008 and I've been looking for a sell signal, which should occur when bitcoin and it's related crypto scams unravel. These imaginary coins are quickly losing value and may soon become worthless, wiping out hundreds of billions of dollars in fantasy wealth. This is a sign of a pending downturn, and Tesla may report another unprofitable quarter in August. If I had stocks, I'd sell all and sit on cash the rest of this year.
