SAR 316286


Hillary is either lying to us, lied to them, or simply lies.
What He Said: “We are seven years into a full-fledged, all out, central bankers doing everything they can to stimulate demand. We looked at all of these indicators that have been pretty good at forecasting recessions and we extrapolated that if they follow the current trends... we’re going to hit a recession sometime in the second half of next year.” BofA's chief strategy honcho.
Slip Sliding Away: Under Erdogan, NATO ally Turkey is growing closer and closer to NATO's prime enemy, Russia. Worse, Turkey has agreed to pursue a pipeline deal with Russia – and that's a deal breaker.
Polling Places: Nearly 70% of Americans have less than $1,000 in savings -not enough to pay the dentist bill, much less any Obamacare copays. Surprising Trump's not doing better.
Strangely Loved, Too: “The strategic resolve of our nation, the United States, is being challenged and our alliances tested in ways that we haven’t faced in many, many decades.” So says General Mark Milley, US Army Chief of Staff doing his General Buck Turgidson imitation. He left out the part about the conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.” Rank (and ranking) nonsense, but the terrifying thing is a lot of people in Washington believe this guff.
Correction: Larry Summers complains that voters have soured on traditional economic policy. Yes and no, Larry; the voters have soured on being jerked around by traditional economists. Like you.
Asked & Answered: When should we distrust elites? Always.
Precisely: What is happening in Aleppo is a raging sectarian civil war and a proxy battleground for the regional political maneuvers of Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Iran. Neither struggle is any of America's business.
Playing With The Big Boys: Warren Buffet says he has paid federal taxes every year since 1944, when he was 13, and that despite Donald's claim, he has not ever taken a carry-forward loss. He also donated $2,858,057,970 to charity but only took $3,469,179 in deductions and paid $1,845,557 in federal taxes. “Finally, I have been audited by the IRS multiple times and am currently being audited. I have no problem in releasing my tax information while under audit. Neither would Mr. Trump – at least he would have no legal problem.”

Compared with some generals I have met, Buck Turgidson was one of the nice guys. Apart from that the 1968 film "Charge of the Light Brigade" has a lot in it about Turkey and Russia. How times change.

For your consideration: Blue Party Red Baiting

Man it's surreal. The Dems have even got Rolling Stone in the act - the Rolling freaking Stone - red-baiting in full blown fear and loathing, shrieking that the GOP candidate - the freaking GOP candidate - is a tool of the Russians, and that he's not sufficiently hard-line with our mortal enemy the Ruskies... who are meddling with our elections, and infiltrating our communications. Man these upside-down carnival rides leave me feeling whoosy.

What's next? The Dems resurrect HUAC...

Hillary waves a sheet of paper at the next debate: "I have a list"...

- It may look like a "sectarian civil war and a proxy battleground for the regional political maneuvers of Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Iran" but that is almost certainly much more than that: one of the main battlegrounds starting the event one of the names of which is the Final Battle. The battle between two arms of the global elites of the humanity... The Global Right and The Global Left as one of possible names which are many... Every country is the battleground within itself but Syria is a key point now, and Aleppo area is a key point there. USA like every other state is just a tool, the Global Right are trying to use it as their tool, and the Global Left - as theirs while fighting each other.

Apparently the 'noise' works! Keep'em focused on the BS and they won't notice we handed the election to the one we promised the job to if she stepped aside last time!

Well, Hillary's going to collect and the rest of us can go twist in the wind.

And that's okay, POTUS isn't a difficult job if you 'do as you're told', how unfortunate for the rest of us one of the things our presidential 'appointee' will NEVER be told is 'help the people!'

This nation did a 'face plant' during Morning in America and none of the Schmucks appointed since has done a damn thing to lift us from the dirt.

People are ANGRY and will only get angrier when the election is stolen from them once again.

All I can say is the STRIKE begins Nov. 9th, prepare!

This election cycle is laying waste to the borderline useless vestige that the media evolved into. No more so than the pathetic display that the NYTs is in the present day. I check the webpage every day. In the recent past it was to see which narratives were being infused into the ether, so that I didn't mistake them as truths if I saw the reflection of the lie first in another locale. The NYTs is the the high art of propaganda, whereby all the imitators calibrate their messaging. This no longer seems to be the case. They are so nakedly selling the toxic sludge of neoliberal financial, and neoconservative geopolitical policies. The country, if asked, in a quite room in which to contemplate with reason and uninfluenced by the megaphone of propaganda; would outright reject these policies. Reject them angrily. And wonder why they even need to be asked because instigating a war with Russia, overthrowing governments, finacializing every atom on earth is so backward, insane, and immoral. The NYTs is not a profitable enterprise. Makes me wonder which institutions are making them whole, because what they're getting in return is plastered all over the front page every day.
