What Could Go Wrong?

CNN, MSM fake news propagandists have taken over U.S. foreign policy, and are now working overtime for their military/industrial complex masters to start wars across the globe

“Things fall apart; the center cannot hold.” Yeats wrote. 


The funny thing is, we didn’t seem to miss the center all that much after it was gone. America is perfectly satisfied hunkering down at the margins these days. Especially the margins of thinking.

One thing that used to occupy the center was public discussion, debate, and argumentation. Now and again, it featured a coherent exchange of ideas. These days, the main political factions are sunk in hysteria of one kind or another. 


Their primitive promptings hardly add up to ideas but rather limbic spasms of fear and rage. And then there is the shadow partner of the two parties called the Deep State, led by the quaintly dubbed “Intelligence Community.” 

These birds, many of them lifers, are dedicated to making the public discussion of anything as incoherent as possible so as to prevent any change in policy that might curtail the growth of the Deep State, a sort of cancer of the body politic.




Case in point, the recent Syrian aerial gas attack in the town of Khan Sheikhoun.Elected officials were all over the cable networks selling the NSA’s story that Syrian president Bashar Assad bombed women and children with Sarin gas three days after State Department declared that it had a new policy of letting Assad remain in power after decades of sedulously scheming to shove him out. That might have led to the end of the six-year-long Syrian civil war, which Assad seemed to be winning, finally — with Russian assistance.

But instead the incident has led to new official calls to shove Assad out… to be replaced by what…? Nobody knows. Because the US Deep State thrives when chaos reigns in foreign lands. So much the better for their looting operations, such as the theft of Libya’s 141 ton gold reserves in 2011. And if not looting hard assets directly, the Deep State benefits when its many black box vendors — the private security armies, materials suppliers, arms sellers — are raking in the accounts receivable.




The fascinating part of the Syrian gas bombing story is how easily the public swallowed it. Those elected congressmen and senators infesting the cable stations told the public that the Intelligence Community “issued a consensus report” that the Syrian air force has dropped Sarin gas bombs on the hapless civilians. Nobody offered any actual evidence that this was so. These days, mere assertions rule.

That’s how we roll now. I’m still waiting to see some evidence that Trump’s campaign “colluded with Russia” to spin the election toward him. Those claims, too, were put out as “a consensus analysis” by the Intelligence Community. And then in March, months after the disputed election, just-retired NSA director James Clapper told NBC’s Meet the Press that his agency had no evidence of “Russian collusion” with the Trump forces. That was only a few weeks ago.




For the moment, it may benefit casual observers to adopt the most cynical attitude possible about the “consensus reports” that emanate from these myriad agencies.What it all finally seems to represent is the snowballing incompetence, venality, mendacity, and impotence of the US government in general, in all its layers and branches.


Hence, the idiotic PR stunt the other day of dropping the so-called “Mother of All Bombs (MOAB)” on some backwater of the once-and-future Mother of All Backwaters, Afghanistan. 

Did you happen to see a photo of that Mother Bomb? It looked bigger than any airplane that might be assigned to carry it, a cartoon of a bomb, more ridiculous than anything you might see in a Vin Diesel movie. 


It even had the acronym “MOAB” plastered on its fuselage in case anyone might confuse it with a canister of Round-up. I wonder what it cost. Got to be more than the $1 million-plus for a Tomahawk missile. You could probably run the whole Medicaid system of Alabama on what one MOAB invoice comes in at.

Meanwhile, the Navy’s Aircraft Carrier Strike Force 1 steams off the waters of North Korea and we lately have word that the US might just try to preemptively take out Kim Jong-un’s nuclear bomb assembly site. 




There’s a tang of excitement in the air (and on the cable channels). America’s back in the game, proving that when all else fails we can be depended on at least to blow some shit up. What could wrong?

Sorry Fate Most Elders Are Forced To Face In America Today

Seniors, Veterans starve and die on the streets as the Pentagon splatters Afghan countryside with 16 MILLION DOLLAR cherry bomb  

NEW EASTERN OUTLOOK
By Grete Mautner
04/13/2017

In spite of the promise made that Donald Trump made during his election campaign to make “America for the Americans”, ever since he’s got inaugurated there’s been no significant adjustments to the social policies carried on by the sitting government.


As before, most Americans are unhappy with the government’s social policy, which was uncovered by the latest study released by the Rasmussen Reports. According to the study, Americans continue to feel that the anti-poverty programs just make the problem worse.

The Gallup Institute reports the every growing concern that most share due the growing social inequality in the US. According to this recent study, the absolute majority of the people with low income levels worry “a great deal” about hunger and homelessness. 


At the same time, 47% of middle-income Americans share with concerns, while those that enjoy massive incomes are still not feeling completely immune to these concerns. The highest levels of anxiety has been registered in low-income families, residing in lower-income affordable households.

Therefore, it is not surprising that the recent scandal that broke out in one the institutions supervised by the Ministry of Veterans Affairs of the United States triggered an internal investigation. 


The plight of homeless Veterans has so far remained unchanged under the new administration, VA hospitals continues policies of abuse, neglect

The scandal broke off when a wife of one of Vietnam war veterans took the picture of a waiting room in the Durham, NC VA Hospital, where one veteran lying on the floor and another slouched in a wheelchair in excruciating pain, waiting for hours for someone to attend to them, as reported by the Huffington Post:

“It was the worst thing to ever happen in my life,” Vietnam War veteran Jesse Lee, 63, who identified himself as the man photographed in the wheelchair, said as he described his agony.




In turn, The Daily Caller would draw attention to yet another loud scandal that broke out in a hospital for military veterans in Cleveland (Ohio). It would note that the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) hospital that touted its program focusing on 20 transgendered individuals, cut its funding allocated on the caring for the remaining 111,000 veterans, saving money on health care essentials like keeping its medical equipment clean and properly training employees, US government auditors found.

It is impossible to establish exactly how many people have become victimised, but journalists that were tasked with studying those cases, after analyzing the state and federal data and interviews with experts, regulators and the families of victims have come to the conclusion that the problem is far more widespread that it was initially assumed.




Even those facilities that actively impede investigations or cover up abuse often get little more than a slap on the wrist. The vast majority of nursing homes with horror stories chronicled in the inspection reports are still in business, accepting new residents today.
