Headline from CBS News:
“Confidence in our country is back,” Trump says as he promotes tax reform plan
If you mean confidence that President OrangePrick is going to blow up the world and everybody in it, well that confidence has skyrocketed for sure.
Otherwise, shoot me.
Headline from the Intercept:
CHELSEA MANNING: HARVARD TOLD ME “SEAN SPICER HAS SOMETHING TO CONTRIBUTE TO AMERICAN POLICY”
I thought Harvard was more competent than that but apparently not.
It would have been less damaging to admit they couldn’t withstand pressure from CIA fuckers and they had to let Manning go.
But to say this manner of shit to here is ridiculous!
UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that the United States will be forced to “totally destroy” North Korea unless Pyongyang backs down from its nuclear challenge, mocking North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a “rocket man” on a suicide mission.
Just this morning I was reading about a $70+ billion increase in defense spending. I think this is a great idea as we have a commander in chief ready to annihilate a country presumably with nuclear weapons.
This is a pro civilization we have going here.
From the New York Times:
The remaking of the Afghan capital almost triples the footprint of a fortresslike Green Zone to take in nearly all ministries and Western compounds.
The project reflects how unsafe the city’s central districts have become and signals that the American military mission will continue there for many more years.
It’s a warmonger’s dream come true.
Just think how little has been accomplished in Afghanistan. The capital is so unsafe that America has to build a fortress not only for its own operations but those of the Afghan government.
The lives of ordinary people are not better and there is no peace here. But there is good money to be made, apparently, and that’s enough for us as a country.
(CNN)Despite new threats from the Trump administration, the US still has no real, practical military option on North Korea, analysts say.
Yes, this is quite a civilization going here? One paranoid dude racing to develop nuclear weapons to defend his crumbling county from an orange haired psycho monkey that has nothing better to do than threaten to wipe a country off the map.
Happy Labor Day!
Make America Great Again!
From Reuters here:
“We should push for an open world economy, promote trade liberalization and facilitation, jointly create a new global value chain, and realize a global economic rebalancing,” Xi told BRICS business leaders and senior officials.
Xi said he still had “full confidence” in BRICS countries’ development despite claims that the bloc’s relevance had faded due to slower growth.
“The development of emerging market and developing countries won’t touch anyone’s cheese, but instead will diligently grow the world economic pie,” he said.
This all sounds so fantastic but the question posed in the title of this post still applies?
Is there enough evidence to say that the globalization process that has brought the world to this point has not touched anyone’s cheese?
From where I’m sitting human history is absolutely chock full of instances where humans steal other humans’ cheese, kill them to get their cheese, and transfer cheese from one place to another in order for the boss human to make more cheese.
I’m open to the possibility of a balanced world economy but there has to be more than pretty statements to convince me.
Headline from the Guardian:
Trump’s ambassador to Israel refers to ‘alleged occupation’ of Palestinian territories
I had no idea until this headline from our fantastic ambassador to israel that the Palestinians made this whole occupation up.
What a ruse!
A sixty year ruse where imaginary soldiers pretend killed and bombed Palestinian areas. You learn something new every day.
