A new article from the Wall Street Journal reports that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lied to congress about the measures Saudi Arabia is taking to minimize the civilian casualties in its catastrophic war on Yemen, and that he did so in order to secure two billion dollars for war profiteers.

This is about as depraved as anything you could possibly imagine. US-made bombs have been conclusively tied to civilian deaths in a war which has caused the single worst humanitarian crisis on earth, a crisis which sees scores of Yemeni children dying every single day and has placed five million children at risk of death by starvation in a nation where families are now eating leaves to survive. CIA veteran Bruce Riedel once said that “if the United States of America and the United Kingdom tonight told King Salman that this war has to end, it would end tomorrow, because the Royal Saudi Airforce cannot operate without American and British support.” Nobody other than war plutocrats benefits from the US assisting Saudi Arabia in its monstrous crimes against humanity, and yet Pompeo chose to override his own expert advisors on the matter for fear of hurting the income of those very war plutocrats.

If the so-called “Resistance” to Trump was ever actually interested in opposing this administration in any meaningful way, this would be the top trending news story in America for days, like how “bombshell” revelations pertaining to the made-up Russiagate narrative trend for days. Spoiler alert: it isn’t, and it won’t be.

It would be so very, very easy for Democratic party leaders and Democrat-aligned media to hurt this administration at the highest level and cause irreparable political damage based on this story. All they’d have to do is give it the same blanket coverage they’ve given the stories about Michael Flynn, George Papadopoulos and Paul Manafort which end up leading nowhere remotely near impeachment or proof of collusion with the Russian government. The footage of the starving children is right there, ready to be aired to pluck at the heart strings of rank-and-file Americans day after day until Republicans have lost all hope of victory in the midterms and in 2020; all they’d have to do is use it. But they don’t. And they won’t.

The US Senate has just passed Trump’s mammoth military spending increase by a landslide 92–8 vote. The eight senators who voted “nay”? Seven Republicans, and Independent Bernie Sanders. Every single Democrat supported the most bloated war budget since the height of the Iraq war. Rather than doing everything they can to weaken the potential damage that can be done by a president they’ve been assuring us is a dangerous hybrid of equal parts Benedict Arnold and Adolf Hitler, they’ve been actively increasing his power as Commander-in-Chief of the most powerful military force the world has ever seen.

The reason for this is very simple: President Trump’s ostensible political opposition does not oppose President Trump. They’re on the same team, wearing different uniforms. This is the reason they attack him on Russian collusion accusations which the brighter bulbs among them know full well will never be proven and have no basis in reality. They don’t stand up to Trump because, as Julian Assange once said, they are Trump.

In John Steinbeck’s The Pearl, there are jewelry buyers set up around a fishing community which are all owned by the same plutocrat, but they all pretend to be in competition with one another. When the story’s protagonist discovers an enormous and valuable pearl and goes to sell it, they all gather round and individually bid far less than it is worth in order to trick him into giving it away for almost nothing. US politics is pretty much the same; two mainstream parties owned by the same political class, engaged in a staged bidding war for votes to give the illusion of competition.

In reality, the US political system is like the unplugged video game remote that kids give their baby brother so he stops whining that he wants a turn to play. No matter who they vote for they get an Orwellian warmongering government which exists solely to advance the agendas of a plutocratic class which has no loyalties to any nation; the only difference is sometimes that government is pretending to care about women and minorities and sometimes it’s pretending to care about white men. In reality, all the jewelers work for the same plutocrat, and that video game remote won’t impact the outcome of the game no matter how many buttons you push.

The only way to effect real change is to stop playing along with the rigged system and start waking people up to the lies. As long as Americans believe that the mass media are telling them the truth about their country and their partisan votes are going somewhere useful, the populace whose numbers should give it immense influence is nullified and sedated into a passive ride toward war, ecocide and oppression. If enough of us keep throwing sand in the gears of the lie factory, we can wake the masses up from the oligarchic lullaby they’re being sung. And then maybe we’ll be big enough to have a shot at grabbing one of the real video game controllers.

Divide and conquer.

The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies... is a foolish idea. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.

Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.

“Truth is treason in the empire of lies.” - Ron Paul

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

Yep

"There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution."

If you think so then vote for the demoncrats until there is not GOP and see what happens!

No 1st Amendment.

No 2nd Amendment.

No 3rd Amendment.

Oh hell no Bill of rights period!

Yeah D and R's are just alike!/s

If you allow them to be filled by politicians that have no core value then yes they will become one of the same. Bush & Clinton. But even Bush as bad as he was is still better than Clinton and Obama.

You will get 45% demoncrat voters because they buy votes and punish those that do not vote for them. This includes illegal voters who probably account for 5-15% of the overall voters. Forced ID at to vote will cut that down to 1-2% which brings the demoncrats to 32-38% of the overall voters.

You will have 45% GOP because its the next bigger group to the right of demoncrap.

Then you have the 5% protest vote or 3rd party voter. <-- Really just a throw away vote ie protest vote.

Then the 5% single topic voter who go either D or R. Sadly the one's that breaks the tie.

A D or an R vote is a throwaway vote. Means that you don't care enough to vote pro-American. It shows grim determination to fail, again and again. And then repeat until all of America is a craphole, like NYC the hometown of Chuckie Schumer, Donald, and Bernie.

We've arrived at the bailout stage much sooner in the Trump administration than in the Bush or Obama eras.

Already, Made Bailouts Great Again.

Left / Right.

The left lowered the bar into the mud.

Now the right just uses a snorkel and calls it normal.

You keep spreading this bs but every time enough people vote 3rd party demoncrats win and we move hard left. A few more times and you and I will not be able to have this conversation.

If you really want to help 3rd parties then demand legal photo id to vote! That will demolish the demoncrats and then we can vote 3rd party without fear of commies winning and moving the country hard left.

Tell the class about Alfred Rosenberg - the racial supremacist idealogue appointed by Hitler to lead the National Socialist party.

Alfred Rosenberg was born in Reval, Governorate of Estonia, Russian Empire

Then from the Washington post. He is described as your carbon copy.

"Alfred Rosenberg joined the Nazis before Adolf Hitler did. He later served as the party’s interim leader. He wrote a virulent, best-selling book about the “Aryan” struggle against Jews."

Tell the class which land Jacob Schiff was living in when he was investing in the communist "revolution".

Drumpf is the best president the Wall Street ziopredators have had since Woody Wilson was giving safe passage to Trotsky... and he's just as completely full of bullshyte con-artistry.
